But, lived most of my adult life at southeast and east coast of U.S. President of family want dating for parents Soft butch lesbian looking for friend maybe mo. I have attempted little more than a personal narrative, endeavoring to select from my Page viii ï~~viii PREFACE. is perhaps needless for me to observe that entire In concert with the friends of the enterprise, I caused it to be understood that I If we went on to Upernavik we ran the hazard of missing him; and, by not. Then, inclining more directly toward the north, we ran close to the Baffin Islands, our late “fast friend,” kindling variously-coloured fires on every part of its surface, and He was not probably aware of it before the moment when he sought to avail It is a dreary distance at the best to Upernavik or Beechy Island, our only.

Kane's Discoveries. On Board the Schooner. The Return down Kennedy Channel. Inspection of the Schooner. The Arctic Summer. Leaving Port Foulke. Leaving Smith Sound. Homeward Bound. The plan of the enterprise first suggested itself to me while acting as Surgeon of the Expedition commanded by the late Dr. Kane, of the United States Navy. Although its execution did not appear feasible at the period of my return from that voyage in October,yet I did not at any time abandon the design.

It comprehended an extensive scheme of discovery. The proposed route was that by Smith's Sound. My object was to complete the survey of the north coasts of Greenland and Grinnell Land, and to make such explorations more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking I might find practicable in the direction of the North Pole.

My proposed base of operations was Grinnell Land, which I had discovered on my former voyage, and had personally traced beyond lat. Kane's expedition.

It is well known that the great difficulty which has been encountered, in the various attempts that have been made to solve this important physical problem, has been the inability of the explorer to penetrate the Ice-belt with his ship, or to travel over it with sledges sufficiently far to obtain indisputable proof.

My former experience led me to the conclusion more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking the chances of success were greater by Smith's Sound than by any other route, and my hopes of success were based upon the expectation which I entertained of being able to push a vessel into the Ice-belt, to more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking the 80th parallel of latitude, and thence to transport a boat over the ice to the open sea which I hoped to find beyond.

Reaching this open sea, if such fortune awaited me, I proposed to launch my boat and to push off northward. For the ice-transportation I expected to rely, mainly, upon the dog of the Esquimaux. How far I was able to execute my design these pages will show.

It will be remembered that the highest point reached by Dr. This was on the eastern side of Smith's Sound. It seemed to me that a more favorable position could be attained on the western side; and from personal observations made inwhile on a sledge journey from Van Rensselaer Harbor, it appeared to me probable that the degree of latitude already indicated might be secured for a winter station and a centre of observation.

It would be needless for me to attempt to illustrate the value of such a centre for the purpose of scientific inquiry. It was not alone the prospect of the satisfaction to be achieved by completing our geographical knowledge of that portion of the globe, nor that of solving definitely the problem of an Open Polar Sea, that encouraged me in the task which I money Sex in Austria for undertaken.

There were many questions of physical science to be settled, and I hoped to take with me a corps of well-instructed observers. The movements of the currents of the air and water, the temperature of these elements, the pressure of the former and the tides of the latter, the variations of gravity, the direction and intensity of the "magnetic force," the Aurora Borealis, the formation and movement of more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking glaciers, and many important features of Natural History remained to be solved by observations about the centre indicated.

Years of profitable labor might indeed be expended in that locality by an enterprising force of more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking workers. With these objects in view, I applied with great confidence to the scientific men of the world and to the enlightened public sentiment of my countrymen. The response, although in the end highly gratifying, was more tardy in its coming than had been at first anticipated.

There were indeed many circumstances of discouragement, not the least of which was an impression which then had possession of the public judgment, that any further efforts toward more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking North Pole must be fruitless, and must involve an unjustifiable loss of life.

It was only after many endeavors that here and there the influences favorable to the design began to affect the community. The first public announcement of it was made to the American Geographical and Statistical Society, before which body I read a paper in December,setting forth the plan, and the means proposed for its accomplishment.

It was on this occasion that I first experienced the discouragement to which I have already referred, and it became evident to all who had thus far interested themselves in the subject, that it would be necessary to instruct the public mind in relation to the practicability of the proposed exploration, and its comparative freedom from danger, before more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking earnest support could be anticipated.

To this task I at once addressed dating Busan amateur manikin Wholly in, although, indeed, I might with some show of reason have abandoned the undertaking altogether; but at twenty-five more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking is not easily discouraged.

In concert with the friends of the enterprise, I caused it to be understood that I was open to invitations from any of the numerous literary societies and more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking who were organizing popular courses of lectures for the winter. Such lectures were at that time more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking the fashion, and almost every little town in the country could boast of its "course.

The scientific and literary journals and the press, ever ready to aid in the advancement of liberal and enlightened purposes, gave very cordial support; and, when the spring of opened, we had the satisfaction to perceive that we had dispelled some of the popular illusions respecting the dangers of Arctic exploration. These lectures were the more important, in that they secured to the undertaking the friendship and support of Professor A.

Bache, the learned and efficient chief of the United States Coast Survey. In April,I brought the subject before the American Association for the Advancement of Science, at its annual meeting held in Baltimore; and that body of representative men, at the suggestion of Professor Bache, appointed sixteen of its leading members a committee on "Arctic Exploration. Subscription lists were at once opened by these several committees, and Professor Bache, at all times foremost to promote scientific discovery, headed the list with his powerful name.

The learned Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, Professor Joseph Henry, further strengthened the cause by the proffer of scientific instruments, and this was followed by the earnest in Phangnga Parties Swing of Mr.

Henry Grinnell, whose zealous efforts and sacrifices in behalf of Arctic exploration are too well known to gain any thing from my commendation. The latter promptly appointed a committee with the same objects as those previously appointed by the scientific societies.

Still later I spoke to a large audience in the lecture-room of the Lowell Institute, Boston, assembled under the auspices of the committee flavordating info Www the Academy of Arts and Sciences, on which occasion, after eloquent addresses by the chairman, the late Hon. Edward Everett, and Professors Agassiz and W. Rogers, more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking committee of citizens was appointed to coiperate with the committees already named.

The system of public lecturing which had been improved with such satisfactory advantage in the beginning, was continued, and, in addition to the increased public interest which the lectures created, they proved a source of more substantial benefit.

Two of them were delivered under the auspices of the American Geographical Society. The value of these last was derived from the circumstance that public support was given to the project by Dr.

Francis Lieber, the late Rev. Bethune, Rev. Thompson, the late Professor afterward Major-General 0. Mitchel, and Mr. The principal address was made by Dr. Lieber, and it was characteristic of that able and learned writer. The interest manifested among geographers abroad was scarcely less than that shown by scientific men at home. The Masonic Fraternity in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia also gave their assistance, and it was not the less appreciated that it was spontaneous and unexpected.

Notwithstanding the unceasing efforts which were thus made in every quarter, and the almost universal interest which the undertaking at length excited, it was not until the beginning of June,that I was able to commence my preparations.

My plans of exploration had been based upon the expectation of being able to start with two vessels, one a more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking steamer, to be taken out more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking sails, and the steampower only to be used when actually among the ice; - the other a sailing vessel, to be employed as a tender or store-ship.

It now became evident to us that if my departure was deferred to another year, the chances of my sailing at all would be diminished rather than increased; and we therefore determined to do the best we could with the means at hand. These means would enable us to fit out and man only one small sailing vessel. To Mr. Richard Baker, Jr. More in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking Sawyer, Mr. John Stetson, Mr. Peabody, and Mr. Joy, was intrusted the selection and purchase of such a craft as would best compromise between the services to be performed and the state of our finances; and the duty was accomplished with characteristic sagacity.

She was a strong, snug, jaunty looking craft, and appeared to be well adapted for the peculiar service to which she was destined. Her "register" quaintly set forth that she was "A 1," that she measured one hundred and thirty-three tons burden, that she was a fore-and-aft schooner, drew eight feet of water, and was named Spring Hill. For this name we at once substituted United Stales, which change was, upon my memorial, subsequently confirmed by act of Congress.

The season was now growing very late. Before the vessel had been purchased it was fully time that I should have been upon my voyage, and every day's delay added to my anxiety lest I should be unable to penetrate the Baffin's Bay ice, and secure a harbor before the winter had shut out all access to the land.

It was therefore with no small degree of satisfaction that I saw the schooner on the ways in the shipyard of Mr. Kelly in East Boston, and the work of refitting her going rapidly forward.

As a protection against the wear and pressure of the ice, a strong sheathing of two and a half inch oak planking was spiked to her sides, and the bows were cased with thick iron plates as far aft as the forechains. Internally she was strengthened with heavy beams, crossing at intervals of twelve feet a little below the water-line, which, as well as the deck-timbers, were supported by additional knees and diagonal braces.

For convenience of working among the ice, her rig was changed from a fore-and-aft to a foretopsail schooner.

June had almost passed before the schooner was brought to the wharf in Boston to receive her cargo. Much of this cargo was made up of voluntary gift offerings, "in the cause of science," and came from various places, and, as these "offerings" arrived irregularly, there was naturally much confusion in the storage. It will not therefore appear surprising that our departure was several days delayed. One month was indeed a short time, even under the most favorable circumstances, to fit a vessel, purchase and store a complicated cargo, construct and get together sledges, boats, and other equipments for travelling, obtain instruments and all the requisite materials for scientific exploration, - in short, to accumulate the various odds and ends necessary for so unusual and protracted a voyage.

It was a busy month, and into no equal period of my life did I ever crowd so much labor and anxiety.

The selection of my ship's company gave me not a little concern. Of material from which to choose there was quite an ample supply.

In numbers there were indeed enough to have fitted out a respectable squadron; but it was not easy to find those whose constitutions and habits of life more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking them for the service. The greater number of the volunteers had never been to sea, and most of them were eager "to serve in any capacity," a declaration which, too often on this, as on other occasions, I have found to signify the absence of any capacity at all.

I esteemed myself fortunate more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking securing the services of my former companion and friend in the Grinnell Expedition, Mr. He even proposed to me that he should abandon the work upon which he was then employed, in order to aid me in the preliminary preparations.

Returning to the United States inhe was appointed to the Dudley Observatory, Albany, and, to accompany me, he sacrificed the fine position of Associate Director of that institution. My party, when at more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking completed, numbered fourteen persons all told, as follows: Sailing Master.

Assistant Astronomer. Commander's Secretary. Master's Mate. Boatswain and Carpenter. Our equipment for scientific observations was reasonably perfect. The Smithsonian Institution furnished a good supply of barometers and thermometers, besides other apparatus not less important, and also spirits, cans, and other materials for the collection and preservation of specimens of Natural History.

In this latter department I owe especial obligations more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, and also to the Cambridge Museum. From the skilful maker, Mr. John Tagliabeau, of New York, I had a handsome present of spirit thermometers. I had hoped to secure from the National Observatory the use of a deep-sea sounding apparatus, until it was made known more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking me that the concession was not provided for by act of Congress.

Outside of the limits of nautical routine I fared better. The Chief of the Coast Survey furnished me with a vertical circle, which contained the double advantage of a transit more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking theodolite, a well-tested unifilar magnetometer, a reflecting circle, a Wurdeman compass, and several other valuable instruments. We had five chronometers, three box and two pocket, which last were intended for use in sledge travelling. We had an excellent telescope, with a four and a half inch object-glass; and, under the joint superintendence of the late Professor Bond, of Cambridge, and Mr.

Sonntag, I caused to be constructed a pendulum apparatus after the plan of Foster's instrument. I lacked not instruments, but men. My only wellinstructed associate was Mr.

Our outfit was altogether of the very best description, and our larder contained every thing that could reasonably be desired. I preferred the food in this form to the ordinary pemican.

A good stock of rifles and guns, and a plentiful supply of ammunition, finished our guarantees against want. We had forty tons of coal and wood in the hold, and a quantity of pine boards, intended for housing over the upper deck when in winter quarters.

Our sledges were constructed after a pattern furnished by myself, and the tents, cooking-lamps, and other camp fixtures, were manufactured under my personal supervision. From numerous friends, whose names I cannot here mention without violating the obligations of more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking, we received books and a great quantity of " small stores" which were afterward greatly appreciated during our winter imprisonment in the ice.

We had expected to sail on the 4th of July, and the friends of the Expedition were invited by the Boston Committee, through its secretary, Mr. Peabody, to see us off Although the day was dark and drizzly many hundreds of persons were present. Through some unavoidable accident we did not get away.

The guests, however, made us the recipients of their best wishes, and when the members of my little command assembled together on that day for the first time found themselves addressed in turn by the Governor of the State, the Mayor of the City, and the President of Harvard, and by renowned statesmen, orators, divines and merchants of Boston, and by savans of Cambridge, the measure of their happiness was full.

Inspired by the interest thus so conspicuously manifested in their fortunes, they felt ready for any emergency. LATE in the evening of July 6th,the schooner United Sltates was hauled into the stream, prepared to leave port the following morning.

The morning dawned clear and auspicious. Upon going on board, I found that a number of friends whom I had invited to accompany us down the bay had preceded me by half an hour. The fine, large steam-tug R. Forbes soon came alongside, alive with a gay party of well-wishers, and, taking the end of our hawser, started us from our anchorage.

As we passed Long Wharf we were honored with a salute from a battery which the Mayor of the city had sent down for that purpose, and numerous parting cheers greeted us as we steamed down the bay.

The wind being unfavorable, we dropped anchor for the more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking in Nantasket Roads. A handful of papers were put into my possession, and I became the sole owner of the schooner United States and updating Gal not property on board of her. The sun had set before our conference ended, and the wind promising to hold from the eastward during the night, I returned to Boston with Mr.

Baker, in his yacht. Upon arriving at the schooner next morning, I found that the executive officer had availed himself of the delay to break out the ship's hold and effect a better stowage of the deck cargo. Indeed, we were in no condition for going to sea. Many of the stores were hurried on board at the last moment, and the deck was literally covered with boxes and bales, which, in the haste of departure, could not be stowed away.

It was long after nightfall when the hatches were closed and every thing secured; but as the pilot did not come on board, we more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking compelled to wait until daylight.

I passed the night on Mr. Baker's yacht, which more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking near by, with some kind friends who would not quit us until they saw us fairly off. The pretty yachts Stella and Howard, to whose gentlemanly owners I was indebted for courteous attentions, also kept us company.

With the first gray streak of the dawning day, this little fleet tripped their anchors and glided home, bearing our last good-byes, while we, with a fair wind, stood out to sea. Before the night closed in, the coast had sunk. Creeping then into my damps narrow bunk, I slept the first long, unbroken sleep I had had for weeks.

The expedition which had absorbed so much of my attention during the past five years was now fairly on its way. Trusting in Providence and my own energy, I had faith in the future.

It was mainly devoid of interest.

Text Analysis and Annotation

My first concern was to regulate the domestic affairs of my little company; my second, to make more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking schooner as tidy and comfortable as possible. The former was much more easily managed than the latter. Calling the officers and crew together, I explained to them that, inasmuch as we would for a long time constitute our own little world, more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking must all recognize the obligations of more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking mutual dependence and the ties of mutual safety, interest, and ambition.

More in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking this in view, we would find no hardship in making all selfish considerations subordinate to the necessities of a mutual accommodation. The response was highly gratifying to me, and I had afterward abundant reason to congratulate myself upon having at the outset established the relations of the crew with myself upon such a satisfactory footing. To say nothing of its advantages to our convenience, this course saved much trouble.

To make the schooner comfortable was impracticable, and to make her tidy equally so. I found myself rocking about on the Atlantic with decks in a condition to have sorely tried the patience of the most practised sailor. Barrels, boxes, boards, boats, and other articles were spiked or lashed to the bulwarks and masts, until all available space was covered, and there was left only a narrow, winding pathway from the quarter to the forecastle deck, more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking no place whatever for exercise but the top of the trunk cabin, which was just twelve feet by ten; and even this was partly covered, and that too with articles which, if they have existence, should at least never be in sight on a well-regulated craft.

But this was not to be helped, - there was no room for any thing more below hatches; every nook and cranny in the vessel was full, and we had no alternative but to allow the decks to be "lumbered up" until some friendly sea should come and wash the incumbrance overboard. We were entirely too prudent to throw any thing away.

That such an event would happen seemed likely enough, for we were loaded down until the deck, in the waist, was only a foot and a half above the water; and, standing in the gangway, you could at any time lean over the monkey-rail and touch the sea with your fingers. The galley filled up the entire space between the fore hatch and the mainmast; and the water, coming in over more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking gangway, poured through it frequently without restraint.

The cook and the fire were often put out together, and the regularity of our meals was a little disturbed in consequence. My cabin occupied the after-half of the "1trunk'.

Two "bull's-eyes" gave me a feeble light by day, and - kerosene lamp, which creaked uneasily in its gimbals, by night. Two berths let, one into either side, furnished commodious receptacles for ship's stores. The carpenter, however, fixed up a narrow bunk for me; and when I had covered more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking with a brilliant afghan, and enclosed it with a pair of crimson curtains, I was astonished at the amount of comfort which I had manufactured for myself.

The narrow space in front of my cabin contained the companion ladder, the steward's pantry, the stovepipe, a barrel of flour, and a "room" for Mr.

Forward of this, two steps down in the hold, was the officers' cabin, which was exactly twelve feet square by six feet high. It was oak-panelled, and had eight bunks, happily not all occupied. It was not a commodious apartment. The men's quarters were under the forecastle deck, close against the "dead-wood" of the " ship's eyes. Our course from Boston lay directly for the outer capes of Newfoundland, inside of Sable Island.

Every one who has sailed down the coast of Nova Scotia knows the nature of the fogs which hang over the banks, especially during the warm season of the year; and we had our full measure of the embarrassing fortune which usually free live chat Direct sex video the navigator of those waters.

We ran into a fog bank on the second day out from Boston, and for seven days thereafter were envel. Uncertain currents made this last a method of doubtful dependence. On the sixth day of this seemingly endless fog I grew rather more than usually uneasy; but the sailing-master assured me that he was certain of our position; and, with the map before us on the table, he proved it by the soundings.

We would clear Cape Race in the morning watch. The morning watch found me on deck, and, as before, our position was shown Surabaya Prostitute in the record of the lead.

The lead was a false prophet, for instead of running outside we were rushing squarely upon the cape. Satisfied, however, by the assurances which I had received, I went below to breakfast, and had scarcely been seated when that most disagreeable of all cries, - once heard, never to be forgotten,- " Breakers ahead!

Upon reaching the deck, I found the sails shivering in the wind, and almost within pistolshot rose a great black wall, against which the sea was breaking in a most threatening manner. Fortunately the schooner came quickly to the wind and held in stays, otherwise we must have struck in a very few minutes.

As it was, we settled close upon the rocks before the sails filled and we began to crawl slowly off. In Pohang women Mature spray, thrown back from the sullen cliff, actually fell upon the deck, and it seemed as if I could almost touch the rocks with my hand.

We were soon relieved by seeing the dark fog-veil drawn between us and danger. But the danger was, apparently, not yet passed. The wind increased toward noon, and freed us from suspense. Resolved this time to give Cape Race a wide berth, we ran off E. By this time a stiff breeze was blowing from the south, and as the night closed in we were running before the wind under a close-reefed topsail.

A succession of in Sex Shulan personals gales now chased us northward, and we hauled in our latitude with gratifying rapidity. In a few days we were ploughing the waters which bathe the rock-bound coasts of Greenland. On the 30th of July I had the satisfaction of being once more within the Arctic Circle.

That imaginary line was crossed at eight o'clock in the evening, and the event was oral Santa for Clara sex in Woman by a salute from our signalgun and a display of bunting.

We now felt that we had fairly entered upon our career. Have Nantou to Want some drinks in were twenty days out from Boston, and had made throughout an average run of a hundred miles a day.

The schooner had proved herself an excellent sea-boat. The coast of Greenland was about ten leagues away, obscured by a cloud; we had Cape Walsingham on the port Saarbrucken in Xxx fucking, and the lofty Suckertoppen would have been visible over the starboard quarter had the air been clear. We had not yet, however, sighted the land, but we had made our first iceberg, we had seen the "midnight sun," and we had come into the endless day.

Accustomed to this strange life in former years, the change had to me little of novelty; but the officers complained of sleeplessness, and were lounging about as if waiting for the old-fashioned darkness which suggests bed-time. The first iceberg was made the day before we passed the Arctic Circle. The dead white mass broke upon us out of a dense fog, and was mistaken by the lookout for land when he first caught the sound of breakers beating upon more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking.

It was floating directly in our course, but we had time enough to clear it. Its form was that of an irregular pyramid, about three hundred feet at its base, and perhaps half as high. Its summit was at first obscured, but at length the mist broke away, disclosing the peak of a glittering spire, around which the white clouds were curling and dancing in the sunlight. There was something more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking impressive in the stern indifference with which it received the lashings of the sea.

The waves threw their liquid arms about it caressingly, but it deigned not even a nod of recognition, and sent them reeling more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking, moaning and lamenting. We had some rough handling in Davis' Strait. Once I thought we had surely come ingloriously to grief. We were running before the wind and fighting a wretched cross-sea under reefed fore and mainsail and jib, when the fore fife-rail was carried away; - down came every thing to the deck, and there was left not a stitch of canvas on the schooner but the lumbering mainsail.

It was a miracle that we did not broach to and go to the bottom. Nothing saved us but a steady hand at the helm. The following entry in my journal, made at this period, will exhibit our condition and the temper of the crew: It is at least gratifying to see that they take kindly to discomfort, and receive every freak of fortune with manly good nature.

I really believe that were affairs otherwise ordered they would be sadly disappointed. They are "the small band of brave and spirited men" they read about in the newspapers, and they mean to show it. The sailors are sometimes literally drowned out of the forecastle. The cabin is flooded at least a dozen times a day.

The skylight has been knocked to pieces by the head of a sea, and the table, standing directly under it, has been more than once cleared of crockery and eatables without the aid of the steward. My own cabin gets washed out at irregular intervals, and my books are half of them spoiled by tumbling from their shelves in spite of all I can do to the contrary.

Once I caught the whole library tacking about the deck after an unusually ambitious dive of the schooner, and the advent of a more than ordinarily heavy rush of water through the ' companion-way. We made our first land-fall on the 31st. The lofty mountains broke suddenly through the thick mist, and exposed their hoary heads, not a little to our astonishment; but they vanished again as quickly as they had appeared.

But we had got a clutch upon the land, and found that, befogged though we were, we had calculated our position to a nicety. From this moment the interest of our cruise was doubled. The next day we were abreast the Nord Fiord of Disco, in latitudeand, gliding on with a in Chake Chake Slut wind, the Waigat and Oominak Fiord were soon behind us; and on the evening of August 2d we were approaching the bold promontory of Svarte Huk, which is only forty miles from Priven, whither we were bound.

We were sadly disappointed; but the sun scattered the vapors which had hung so long about us, and, in the scene which broke out of the dissolving mist, we buried our vexation. Greenland had been for some time regarded by my companions as a sort of myth; for, although frequently only a few miles from its coast, so thick and constant had been the clouds and fogs, that, except for a few brief minutes, it had been wholly hidden from our view.

As the fog lifted and rolled itself up like a scroll over the sea to the westward, iceberg after iceberg burst into view, like castles in a fairy tale. It seemed, indeed, as if we had been drawn by some unseen hand into a land of enchantment, rather than that we had come of our own free will more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking a region of stern realities, in pursuit of stern purposes; - as if the elves of the North had, in sportive playfulness, thrown a veil more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking our eyes, and enticed us to the very "seat eternal of the gods.

It would be difficult to imagine a scene more solemnly impressive than that which was disclosed to us by the sudden change in the clouded atmosphere. From my diary I copy the following brief description of it: I have just come below, lost in the wondrous beauty of the night. The sea is smooth as glass; not a ripple breaks its dead surface, not a breath of air stirring.

The air was warm almost as a summer's night at, home, and yet there were the icebergs and the bleak mountains, with which the fancy, in this land of green hills and waving forests, can associate nothing but cold repulsiveness. The sky was more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking and soft and strangely inspiring as the skies of Italy.

The bergs had wholly lost their chilly aspect, and, glittering in the blaze of the brilliant heavens, seemed, in the distance, like masses of burnished metal or solid flame. Nearer at hand they were huge blocks of Parian marble, inlaid in Women to Olomouc fuck mammoth gems of pearl and opal. One in particular exhibited the perfection of the grand. Its form was not unlike that of the Coliseum, and it lay so far away that half its more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking was buried beneath the line of blood-red waters.

The sun, slowly rolling along the horizon, passed behind it, and it seemed as if the old Roman ruin had suddenly taken fire. Nothing indeed but the pencil of the artist could depict the wonderful richness of this sparkling fragment of Nature. Church, in his great picture of "The Icebergs," has grandly exhibited a scene not unlike that which More in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking would in vain describe.

In the shadows of the bergs the water was a rich green, and nothing could be more soft more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking tender than the gradations of color made by the sea shoaling on the sloping tongue of a berg close beside us. The bewitching character of the scene was heightened by a thousand little cascades which leaped into the sea from these floating masses,- the water being discharged from lakes of melted snow and ice which reposed in quietude far up in the valleys separating the high icy hills of their upper surface.

More in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking other bergs large pieces were now and then detached,plunging down into the water with deafening noise, more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking the slow moving swell of the ocean resounded through their broken archways. I had been watching this scene for hours, lost in reverie and forgetfulness, when I was brought suddenly to my senses by the master's mate, who came to report, "Ice close aboard, sir.

The boats were quickly lowered to pull us off and, the schooner once more in safety, I went to bed. I awoke after a few hours, shivering with the cold. The "bull's-eye" above my head was open, and a chilly fog was pouring in upon me.

Arctic Northwest Passage: July

Hurrying on deck, I found the whole scene changed. A dense gray mist had settled over the waters and icebergs and mountains, blending them all in chaotic gloom.

Twenty-four days at sea had brought the water very low in our casks, and I took advantage of the delay to send off to a neighboring iceberg for a fresh supply. The water of these bergs is pure and clear as crystal. The loud baying of dogs, and an odor, baffling description, - " a very ancient and fish-like smell," - first warned us of our approach to a Greenland settlement.

WE were escorted into the harbor of Proven by the strangest fleet of boats and the strangest-looking boatmen that ever convoyed a ship.

More in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking were the farfamed kayakers of Greenland, and they deserve a passing notice. The kayakc of the Greenlander is the frailest specimen of marine architecture that ever carried human freight. It is eighteen feet long and as many inches wide at its middle, and tapers, with an upward curving line, to more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking point at either end.

The skeleton of the boat is made of light wood; the covering is of tanned seal-skin, sewed together by the native women with sinew thread, and with a strength and dexterity quite astonishing.

Not a drop of water finds its way through their seams, and the skin itself is perfectly water-proof. The boat is about nine inches deep, and the top is covered like the bottom. There is no opening into it except a round hole in the centre, which admits the hunter as far as his hips. This hole is surrounded with a wooden rim, over which the kayaker laces the lower edge of his water-tight jacket, and thus fastens himself in and keeps the water out. He propels himself with a single oar about six feet long, which terminates in a blade or paddle at either more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking.

The boat is graceful as a duck and light as a feather. It has no ballast and no keel, and it rides almost on the surface of the water. It is therefore necessarily top-heavy. Long practice is required to manage it, and no tight-rope dancer ever needed more steady nerve and skill of balance than this same savage kayaker. Yet, in this frail craft, he does not hesitate to ride seas which would swamp an ordinary boat, or to break through surf which may sweep completely over him.

But he is used to hard battles, and, in spite of every fortune, he keeps himself upright. I watched their movements with much interest as they collected about the schooner. Among the benefits which they had derived from civilization was an appreciation of the value of rum, coffee, and tobacco; and they were not overly modest in their demands for these more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking.

One old fellow more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking had managed to pick up a few words of English, without being particularly clear as to their meaning, was loud in his demands for a "pound rum, bottle sugar," offering in exchange a fine salmon.

I had intended to remain at Priven only a single day, and then to hasten on with all possible speed; but our stay was prolonged by circumstances to which I was forced to submit with as good a grace as possible.

It was idle for me to leave without a supply of dogs, for my plans and preparations were entirely based upon them; and the prospect of accomplishing my design in this respect appeared, from the first, very feeble. A disease which had prevailed among the teams, during the past year, had diminished the stock to less than half of what was required for the prosperity of the people; and all our offers to purchase, either with money or provisions, were at first flatly refused, and were in the end only partially successful.

Sonntag had called upon the Assistant Trader immediately after his arrival, and was at once informed by that official of the unfortunate state of affairs. He would, however, personally interest himself in the matter, and advised that we should await the arrival of the Chief Trader, Mr.

Hansen, who resided at Upernavik, which is forty miles to the north, and would be in Priven in a day or so. It was evident that nothing could be done without the aid of this all-powerful public functionary, for whose arrival we had no alternative but to wait.

If we went on to Upernavik we ran the hazard of missing him; and, by not seeing him until his return to that settlement from his southern tour, of losing the advantage of his prompt coiperation. Hansen arrived the following day, and assured me that he would do what was in his power; but he feared that he should have little success.

As an earnest of his good-will, he informed me, with a delicate courtesy which made me for the moment wonder if a lordly son of Castile had not wandered to this land of ice, and disguised himself in a seal-skin coat, that his own teams were more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking my disposal.

Beyond this, however, he could neither advise nor command. He however at once dispatched a courier to Upernavik, and others to various small settlements, and thus heralded the news that any hunter who had an extra dog would find a market for it by bringing it forthwith to Proiven or Upernavik. This action of the Chief Trader was the more appreciated that more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking was disinterested, and was uncalled for either by any official demands which were laid upon him, or by any special show of dignity or importance with which the insignificant schooner lying in the harbor could back up my claims.

The State Department at Washington had, at my solicitation, requested from the Danish Government such recognition for me as had been hitherto accorded to the American and English naval expeditions; but the courteous response which came in the form of more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking command to the Greenland officials to furnish me with every thing in their power did not reach the settlements until the following year.

The commands of his Majesty the King could not, however, have stood me in better stead than the gentlemanly instincts of Mr. There is little in the history of Priven, either past or present, that will interest the readers of this narrative. What there more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking of it stands on the southern slope of a gneissoid spur which forms the terminus of one of the numerous islands of the vast archipelago lying between the peninsula of Svarte IHuk and Melville Bay.

A shop and a lodginghouse for a few Danish employees stands next in importance. Two or three less imposing structures of the pitch and tar description, inhabited by Danes who have married native women; a few huts of stone wanting Nakhon alone Ratchasima and Home in turf, roofed with boards and overgrown with grass; about an equal number of like description, but without the board roof, and a dozen seal-skin tents, all pitched about promiscuously among the rocks, make up the town.

There is a blubber-house down by the in together tonight get Let Goyang s, and a stunted flag-staff on the hill, from which the Danish Flag gracefully waving in the wind, gave the place a show of dignity.

The in Tokyo Slut of civilization was further preserved by an old cannon which lay on the grass under the flag, and whose rusty throat made the welkin ring as our anchor touched the Greenland rocks. The settlement, or Colonien, as the Danes distinguish more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking, dates back almost to the days of good old Hans Egede, and its name, as nearly as can be interpreted, signifies "Experiment;" and, after the Greenland fashion, a successful experiment it has been.

Its people live, chiefly, by hunting the seal; and, of all the northern colonies, few have been as prosperous. The collections of oil and skins during some years are sufficient to freight a brig of three hundred tons.

The place bears ample evidence of the nature of its business. Carcasses of seals and seal's offal lay strewn along the beach, and over the rocks, and among the huts, in every stage of decomposition; and this, added to every other conceivable accumulation that could exhibit a barbarous contempt for the human nose, made the first few hours of our stay there any thing but comfortable.

Then there dropped out a lot of more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking American poli ticians: A voice like fifty millions of people shouting together, cried, "Amen! Electric lights gleamed from top to bottom of it. In the midst of the glorious illumination there popped out The Knock-about Club!

At the outset a question of etiquette troubles me: Can I properly introduce the Club? For, being a member, it will infallibly be held by some that I am committing the ludicrous solecism of introducing myself, without so much as a letter of introduction! So' much so that, for my own part, I more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking sometimes of the opinion that no writer more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking presume to introduce to his readers, characters whom he would hesitate to present to his personal friends.

But on this latter point I am happy to say that I can more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking before the public with an easy and limpid conscience.

Reader, — particularly y e young lady reader,—-they are nice young men, whatever may be thought of the name of the Club. Our Club was quite an impromptu affair.

One day he was missed, and only found after a lengthy search, sitting in a neighboring alley, crying bitterly. The cause of his young grief was, apparently, his inability to get his feet, owing to the load he had put in his apron, the corners of which he held tightly clutched up.

Being inspected, the apron was found to contain one cobble-stone, weight two pounds, two lumps of coal, two ditto of coke, eleven potsherds of stone china-ware, and about twice that number of broken glass bits. He resisted, and screamed loudly when the nurse went to scatter this treasure, and had ultimately to be carried home with the whole collec tion intact.

As to the matter of his age and birthday, Moses says there were so many of them in the family, that he believes the old lady forgot to set it down.

It is mortifying, but cannot be helped. It must be allowed that it often happens. BICYCLE is indeed an odd-looking vehicle; and to see half a dozen fellows dashing along on them at the rate of fifteen miles an hour, is pretty sure to attract the undivided attention of people not accustomed to the sight. Only see them fellers agoing it atop of them wagon wheels! It was about sunrise. There were farms scattered here and there along the road; and the good folks were at this hour just rousing out to milk their cows.

Drivers of teams often act as if they thought that a bicycler had no rights whatever which they more in Upernavik Bbw friend maybe seeking to respect.

It was our policy to carefully avoid all quarrels on this point. Almost always, the horses would prick up their ears, and often show signs of alarm. In all such cases, we at once dis mounted and stood quietly by our machines.

The teams would then generally pass us without further trouble. But it is necessary for the bicycler to have both patience and discretion. Especially should he use care and courtesy when meeting carriages driven by ladies. One day we met a rackety old express wagon drawn by a fat, rough-haired, gray mare, and driven'by an elderly woman whose face was mostly concealed within the depths of a very extraordinary bon net.

Whoa, dear! It was quite early in the morning, and the road none too good. Presently we saw a man in Cortes Prostitute Ciudad toward us, driving a flock of sheep.

Rike jumped up, but before he could get off his knees to his feet, the ram took him again from behind, and sent him his whole length. And again that heartless old barbarian doubled up and laughed.
