Excerpt from Lights and Shadows of Sailor Life: As Exemplified in Fifteen Years' Experience, Including the More Thrilling Events of the U. S. Exploring Expedition, and Reminiscences of an Eventful Life on the "Mountain Wave;"

The Journal of the Exploring Expedition, publish ed by the government, being a very expensive work, places its very important and interesting matter be yond the means Of the working classes, and the scenes and sketches which I have penned from my journal of that cruise, will be read with interest and profit by such as shall peruse these pages, as they will deline ate the manners and customs Of different portions of the world, of whose inhabitants little has been writ~ ten. The description of scenery and life on the ocean wave, has been truthfully penned, and the author can, with all confidence, appeal to the experience Of every sailor for its confirmation. In the recital of the events in which he was personally engaged, any thing like exaggeration has been carefully avoided; the facts connected with the death Of the generous Un derwood and Henry, were too deeply engraven on his body as well as his mind to be easily forgotten, and in a way that renders exaggeration wholly unnecessary. Any remark that he may make upon the officers Of the different vessels, he has given only his own personal opinions, free from prejudice, or color Of any kind, save truth.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Lights and Shadows of Sailor Life: As Exemplified in Fifteen Years Experience, Including the More Thrilling Events of the U. S. Exploring Expedition, and Reminiscences of an Eventful Life on the Mountain Wave; We had not proceeded far, when the wind died away and we were compelled to come to anchor, only a short distance from where we started. Soon after, however, a breeze springing up, Signals were again made for the squadron to get underway, which was immediately done, and all the vessels stood out in company. The breeze lasting but a short time, we made but little progress during the night. In the morning we were in sight of Cape Henry. At eight o clock the ships were hove to and the pilots left, and by them we sent our final farewells to our friends on shore. At such a moment, when the last hold on our country is sunder ed from us, the kinder feelings of the soul are awak ened. Our friends become more than ever endeared to us, and every thing connected with them wears an increasing interest. There was a sadness on the countenance of many, and a quivering of the lips.
