THE TRIUMPH OF STEAM.
FIFTEEN DAYS FROM KG-
LANt).
Scarcely had the hiultitutde which
thronged the Buttery yesterday to
gaze at the Smius steam ship as she
rode at anchor, been gratified at the
noble sight, and exchanged congratula
turns on the stirring event, when the
shouts of the spectators announced the
appearance of the Great W estriiv.
as that splendid ship, of a Frigate's
dimensions, came dashing up the bay,
tilled with small cralt and ateain
t .a
u4is, rounue.il tue castie and pas-
seil up the East River in fine style.
It was supposed in England that 'the
ureat vv estern would have got in be
lure me o.fiKi, at all events she was
close on hrf heels. There was great
disappointment on finding that the
Great Western did not anchor ft the
Battery, but proceeded to the dock at
the foot of Pike street.
The question yesterday though the
city was "will tt pay?" This is no
doubt an experiment founded on the
well known temper and disposition of
the American people- they are ever!
on the "ff ahead" principle, and never
will take twenty days to accomplish a
voyage il U can be done saTely m efi
days, apd would risk their necks in a
balloon if lime and space could there
by be overcome. What, therefore,
would have subjected the Captain to a
sentence of death as a witch in the days
of Cotton Mather, or to the penalty of
smoking a dozen pipes for hrs temeri
ty in the time of Governor Stuyvesant,
will be pronounced an epoch in the
annals of our ouutry, and great 5 re
joicings will be had on the occasion.
For passengers, light goods, such as
silka- laces,, jewelry, watches, &c.
&c these steam ships may pay welt,
as the voyage is short, and the coal
consumed procured in England at a'
cheap rate) but our packet ships must

AN Ol.n SEA f!APTAtW9 VAI1V
AN OLD SEA CAPTAIN'S YARN
On the corner of a pleasant green in
a quite village in Connecticut stood a
respectable looking Tavern, one room
of which was rented to a small club ot
news-reades, who were wont to as
semble for the purpose of learning and
discussing the affairs of the village and
nation. Distinguished among this lit
tle society, was captain Andrew Mer
ry weather, a retired ship-master of the
old school. He had spent the early
part of his life in the East India trade,
and had risen in that aervica 1 Uia
good eondaat i W ommind of fine
ship. When a boy he was a general
favorite with his shipmates who gave
him the appellation of 'Jack Merry
by which name he was known, until as
mate he changed his cognomen to "Mr.
Merry weather." lie was an accom-
Clished seaman and by devoting those
ours to studying his profession which
all have at their command in long voy
ages, he became a scientific navigator.
He was remarkable for his knowledge
of the pulley, and by his combination
of different blocks always had his ship
worked more easily than any other,
which made him a great favorite with
sailors. From this peculiarity,' some
wag who belonged to his crew, after he
became master, christened him "Sir
Andrew Allblocks" by which charac
teristic title he was long known in the
CbInseet. " HavTne : retired with a
wII earned com pete iiceto Tilsnh ante
village, he became an mverterate news
reader, and, soon as the notes of the
distant horn announced the approach
ing mail, his weather-beaten, though
sta'ely and gentlemanly form, was
seen wending its way across the village
green to his accustomed seat in the
Reading Room.
Here on one occasion lately after
looking over the papers with evident
sighs of impatience; they -being all a
like filled with accounts of Bank fail
ures, commercial distress, financial
experiments, &C he tossed from him
"the Globe" in a pet, and having plac
ed his tortoise shell spectacles in a cu
rious otter skin pouch, drew his chair
toward mine and told me if I had leis
ure to hear it, he would spin me a
yarn. As I had often listened with
delight to his sea stories in telling
whick, though a gentleman, he always
adopted nautical language, 1 expressed
my satisfaction and he sputyisullows:
Once when I was before the mast I
made a voyage in the old Union; you
wilt recollect that she was a fine ship
of the first class and though fitted for
trade in which she had been very suc
cessful, yet was fully armed and had
oUve or twice made successful cruises
as a man of war. She was divided into
many shares and each individual of the
crew had an interest in the voyage.
She had just arrived front a successful
voyage, and the old captain bad left
her, but I knew moat ol the officers,
who were perfect teamen and several
ot'Jhem entirely competent to command
her, Jo that I felt no anxiety on that ic
Now yoC will understand that she
was a joint stock-concern; we bad-all
hands a voice inxhoosing the captain;
2cre were several talked of, one of
them capital teaman r hal been-ene
orHUie mates in former voyagein7
name was Harry Kay; he was at this
time a captain of the starboard watch"
and was a fine intrepid fellow,' frank
and honorable, and a' true sail of, every
inch of him; he would iiawe been made
skipper long before but for the dirty
and malicious slanders of a set of lub
bers who envied him his good name,
2nd charged him with crimes of which
j F. e waslncapabre. ' -; V"
There was another officer n board
by Jje nam? of Webber, who would
have nude an excellent commander;
he was from down east first shipped
in a lumberman, afterward moved up
to cape Coll and followed the - fiishing
and nnally shipped in the Union tnaov
years ago. He was turner when she
was a man-of-war and had served in
her ever since. He could handle a
martin spike or a quadrant, strap a
block, or measure a distance; take
a reef or a lunar, and was as well
acquainted with every timber head in
the old Union as the carpenter who
built her. He knew just her trim and
rate of sailing, how much sail she could
carry and how to aet it I always
mougni mat u ne had not been a down
raster he would have been made skip
per years ago; out now-a-days a man
that has belonged to a Cod fisherman
seldom gets above it, though Jack Ad
ams did.
There were many clever seanien on
board who knew their duty and were
willing to do it, but I should spin out
my yarn too long if I described them
all to you. I knew that several of
them were talked of for Captain jand as
I knew them all to be competent sea
men and navigatiors,! did not trouble
myself much about the matter until I
heard it whispered about among my
shipmates that they talked of voting
for old Andrews the marine officer.
TRis man had been captain of a mili-tia-compafty
and 4iad done good .ser
vice in the Indian wars for which he
was made Captain of marines; but
knew no more about seamanship than
the cook's mate. He was first set up
by the ship boys merely as a matter of
fun, and every time they saw his cock
ed hat upon deck they would set up a
huzza. At first I laughed with the
rest, supposing it to be all a joke,
having no idea that there was a man in
the ship who would vote for the old
soldier, or that he would wish to be
placed in a situation for which he was
entirely unfit, but it proved to be a
very serious joke as you will see
Our crew like all large ones was com
posed of seamen and landsmen, and
though there were many first rate men
among them, still, there were many
who were mere live lumber and vet
their votes counted us much as the best
Many were foreigners just shipped who
did not know one rope from another!
tlies for th most part joined in the
huzza (or Andrews, usUW ka tU
vote came to b takenr to my aston-
iahoMat it was announced that he was
to be Captain for the eruiser, and was
to be obeyed and respected according
ly. My eyes! how the old sailors
laughed when first they saw the cock
ed hat and spurs walking the quarter
deck under a long red feather, but it
soon proved no laughing matter.
When Capt. Andrews came into
command he brought with him a chief
mate by the name of Martin who puz
zled us all, he had been a good deal
at sea and was thought by many to be
au excellent sea man; that was my
own opinion, and as I knew that he
would live aft, and be able to exercise
a good deal of influence over the Cap-
lain, i leu great connuence mat an
would go well, I was at least in hopes
that he would prevail on the old gen
tleman to "let well enough alone" a
a maxim which if better observed
wouiu prevent many acidents at sea
ttmHm shoreip?" But therecaga'nxlrrBS
out of my reckoning. We had scarce
ly got to sea before the captain com
menced a regular turn out of all the
officers, who as I told you were gen
erally safe men, and in place of them
with few exceptions, he put in an scaly
a set of fellows as the crew afforded.
The cook was made sailing Master, the
cook's mate, a quarter master, in shoit
there was hardly a deck walloper or
lobloly boy on board buffiad an office;,
and the nust experienced officers In
the ship were turned forward. I then
began to think it was all day with us.
Dan Webber, Harry Kay and others
said all they could to prevent this, and
boldly told the skipper that if he went
ahead this fashion we should soon have
the Devil to pay, but it-was of no use.
The chief mate kept dark, he pretend
ed to do all he could for the. good of
the voyage but most of us believed
him to be at the bottom of the devil
try. You may well suppose that
things' soon got to be helter-skelter
fore and aft; the ships duty which used
to go on like clock work, was either
neglected or done wrong, and instead
of attending to it, all hands were at
loggerheads, trying to get art' office or
keepsuchal they had. I knew if bad
weather should come on, it would be a
T antron s
xold scald for us and tried to persuade
ine crew 10 nsien to tne warnings or
their true friends, but it did no good,
foi the captain had taken a parcel of
loafers aft to live with him, and al
though they were not officers and in a
well regulated ship would have been
kicked out ol the cabin, they were his
principal advisers, and were employ,
ed to go about among the crew and
prevent their complaining. It was a
pity to see a fine ship in such hands and
many of ns would have given our last
shirt to have seen her sale in port a-
fatnTbat bid as things were they loon
became worse. The weather which
had been usually fine from the time
we sailed, now began to look dirty,
and a heajt' swell denoted foul wea
ther. At this juncture to our aston
ishment we were, ordered to . take in
the main topsail, unbend it and stow it
away. We supposed of course that
another would be put in place of it, but
Tdaa rfoTartdirwiachlrnrtfatrtfe
signed. In vain Webber and others
told the captain that the sail was a
rood one and altogether the most use
ful sail on the ship, tending more to
keep her steady in foul . weather than
all the other sails together -that it
would be better to take in some of the
light kites, or if he thought the ' top
sail too large reef it, or even double
reef it, but entreated that it might
stand, or be replaced by a new one.
A large part ot tne anew joined in mis
request, but in Vain; the captain said
the topsail was worn out, and finally.
getting mad swore, and d d all tup-
sails and the men who invented them,
insisting at the same time that stud
ding sails were the only sails a ship
wanted in any weather, so the tup
sail was taken in and as tUe ship yaw
ed about for the want of ij, studding
sails were set wherever there was room
to ts out a boom, and she soon had a
devil of a press of canvas on her. The
old skipper stood on the quarter deck
calling upon all hands to see how beau
tifully the ship went through the wa
ter under studding sails, and the mate
and all lubbers off hats and huzzad to
see how she skimmed it. All the sea
men on board were alarmed, for though
the ship was going through the wa
ter like a Wild horse, they knew that
as the weather grew rough if she should
chance to "broach to" there would be
a terrible crash among the studding
sail booms and many a good seaman
would get his head broke by them
who hacf done his "utmost to prevent
the danger.
As the sea increased the good ship
reeled like a drunken man, lurching
gunwale to, while the booms, yielding
to the press of the gale were springing
like coach whips. At this time, it the
light sails had been taken in and the
maintopsails set, she would have riuuen
out the gale like a duck; but instead
of this to our horror ami amazement,
as the ship rolled deeper, the baHast
was ordered to be hoisted from the
hold where alone it could be of any
service, and placed at the mast head.
where it could only increase the dan
ger of our situation and most probably
carry away the masts, or capsize the
ship, and this was done under the pre
tence of keeping her steady! As
the Captain gave this preposterous
order the mate and all the loafers, in
stead of attempting to dissuade him
from such monstrous folly, only
lMwJha.
and to his glory. Belore the conse
quences ot his fatal measure could be
seen, it struck eight bells, and the
captain's watch being out, he left the
deck and Martain had charge of the
ship. We now hoped that although
he had encouraged the old gentleman
in his folly, to serve his own ends, yet
as he was now in command, he would
consult the safety of all hands, as
well as his own reputation, by re
scinding this mischievous order. The
people got together forward and sent
aft to entreat, that as they were part
owners of the ship and their lives and
property were at stake, he wouliftake
measures to save them from total ship
wreck; but though the gale was each
moment increasing and though the
sea made a" clean beach" over the
decks, staving casks -and.- damaging
cargo though the studding sail booms
were snapping and the sails flying to
ribbands, he refused At Jength the 1

' At "this moment the village clock
Struck one, which beirtjs the captain's

depart, but I having become interested
in the narrative caught him by a button
and begged to know how the unlucky
ship got out of the scrape.
Why she has not got out of it said
the captain she is there now, and
unless all hands muster on the first
Monday of April for a long and strong
pull, to "right her up" "clear the

she never well get out of it"
Tht Whig National Convention.
We learn by the Washington corres
pondence of the Boston Atlas, that the
Yhig Members of Congress have a
greed upon the first Monday in June,
1839, as the time to held the Conven
tion proposed, and the place is to be
Harrisburg, ( Penn.)
This subject excited great interest,
and gave rise to very lively discus
sions. The first question was, wheth
er the convention should be held in the
year 18S9 or the year 1840. It was
presently agreed that 1839 should be
the year.
The question then arose, what
month in 139 should be selected.
One party, including the Kentucky
members and some others, were in fa
vor' of February; another party inclu
ding the New York members, and
such of the Pennsylvania at attended,
were very etrenuons for November, in
order to bring the convention -after the
conclusion of Uie autumn electron.
The first 'Monday in June, was fited
upon as a middle term, and was finally
carried. ' ' '.
It was understood, however, that if
arry thtng'vi wrcur making a post
nonement desirable, at the next ses
sioa of Congress, the 'Whig members
should have the power to agree upon
such postponement Jt is understood
thatT eimesseewtrt"srnd n -delegates
to the convention, the W higs -of that
State having taken such grounds a
gainst the convention that nominated
Van Buren, as to make it hardly prop
er for them to participate in a similar
assemb'L-JNorth Carolina, it is also
said, will send none.' Such is the o
piiiion now, though what-changes may
take place before the expiration of a
year is not easy to say. Halt. Chron,

In the Senate, on Thursday, the 19th
April, the joint resolution for the ad
journment of Congress on the fiit
Monday in June, coining up on its third
reading it was on motion of Mr. Gun
dy, postponed until Monday week.
S'lini time was spent in discussing
the bill to prohibit the issuing and cir
culation of the notrs of the late Banks
ot the Uniit-d States. The bill was
modified so as to confine the penalty
more explirity to directors, trustees,
agents, and other officers, and the a
gents of the trustees of the late Bank
of the United States, as before design
ed to be provided for in the bill, and
was then laid ocr.
In the lloase, the resolution for di
vorcing the Government from the pub
lic press, and the bill making appro
priations for the ?emiiiole war, were
on the tapis, but nothing definite, of
general importance, was transacted.
On Friday, April 0, the Sen.lte re
sumed the consideration of the bill to
prevent the reissue and circulation of
the bdls, notes and -ulher .securities of
corporations created by Congress
which have expired, and, altera debate,
in which it was supported by Messrs.
Wall, Clay, of Alabama, Grundy,
Rives, Buchanan, Calhoun and Brown,
and oppossed by Messrs. Preston,
White and Prentiss, it was ordered, to
be engrossed for a third reading ayes

The Senate adjourned over to Monday.
In the House, the bill making ap
propriations for the continuation of the
Cumberland road, in the States of ()

final reading 96 to 80.

THE REPORT OF THE DUEL
LING COMMITTEE.
This importont report was brought
into the House late this evening. A
question arose on the proposition to
print it, and the House adjourned with
out deciding. In relation to Mr.
Graves, the recommendotion is in the
following words r
"Tha committee, therefore, viewing (he
breach of the rights and privilege, of the Home,
on the part of Mr. Uravet, to bare been in of

sentative uovernmcnt, leel constrained, by a
eiiaeof duty, to present to the House a resolu
tion that ha bu expelled therefcmi."
With regard to the seconds, the
committee declare they deserve the
censure of the House.
In conclusion, the report says:
"The committee entertain no doubt that
Jaioet YVataon Webb ha been guilty of a
breach of the pri vile fces at the H6ue; but ifiey

tisement of the coorts of law and of public opin

dignity and the public interests by bestowing
upon him no further notice."
On Monday, April 23, the Senate

In the House of Representatives,
says the correspondent of the Baltimore
Chronicle a very warro 'debate came
up to day upon the printing to the
world the exparte report of the com
mittee, upon the duel, concluding
as it does, with a resolution . affecting
the rights of three me nibe s of the
House and their constituents, viz: be
ing no less then the expulsion of one,
and the censure of the others.
The objection to publishing this par
ty pabulum for political excitement,
was based upon the grounds that the
committee having no right to proceed,
as they did, so the House would act
unjustly and unconstitutionally, by
sending to- the world evidence so
illegally and improperly obtained.
Many able speeches were made going
to this., point, by Northerners and
