tinued the same until midnight, at which time
it lulled for half an hour." r . : j ,
The log conkeys to the reader sorbe idea of
the stat of thejship and "effects of ih? storm on
Sunday at noojn. Its effects on those -below'
can best be given in the words ofa gentleman
who remained! the greater part of the time in
the cabin : ' f
" To convey an idea of the appearance of all
around, is out of my power. In the words of
Sheridan, the tempest roamed in all the terror
of its giory.". j The atmosphere was surcharg.
ed with,'' a thick, spray, rendering a look far out
lo seaNVard, -! impossible. , The wind hqwled,
roared and bellowed, like the constant mutter
ings ofjlhe thunder c oud. Huge waves of
tremendous height and vokime,ose in mad dis
play around the ship, threatening every; moment
to break ovef ps amidships and crush the ves-
sel. Sa afteir sea striking us with terririQ noise,
caused the gallant ship to stop fir an instant,
tremble and shake in every timber from her
stem to her stern post, reeling and lurching,
tossed to and fro : agairLwouVlijrtner fresh
.strength, and Jsvith her wheels half hid in the
wifcj waters, again and again receive the thun
dering blows f an element that seemed armed
fox our destrucjlion. j
" The sails ion the yards strongly secured by
ropes and gaskets, were blown from their furls
and streamed put to leward in ribbons. But all
this was as nothing. About 1 p; m., whilst
most of us were seated in agonizing suspense
in the lower cabin, holding fast to the tables
and settees, a sea struck the vessel, and a tre
mendous crash was heard on deck ; instantly
the cabin was darkened, and torrehtsi of water
came pouring; down upon us through the sky-

It was a mpst solemn scene. Mr. Balch first
read the service appointed for a storm at sea, :

Isaac Franklin, late of uraner county,
Tennessee Idied on the 27th of April last.
He began life as a boatman, and in that

fortune which, at the timo of his death,
exceeded a million of dollars. He had
large estates iri the parish of West Feli-

the; Nashville Whig thus speaks of the
disposition of his property :
"His Louisiana property has been val

by the best judges is considered. to have
been estimated considerably below its re

After the communion, I returned to my state

therefore alone, taking a last look at the pic

at which time the clouds began to break, and
the squalls less furious. Got the ship's head
