THE MATE OF THE HENRY JAMES. Donald Macdonald, mate of tho ship Henry James, of Glasgow, was recently pro ented by hir Nathaniel Dunlop, of tho Allan lino, with the brotza medal of Lloyd’s Fegiftcr Committee in acknowledgment of his extraordinary exertions to rescue the crew and the passengers of the ship from a desert island in the South Pacific, on which they were landed after the wreck of the vessel on an unmarked coral reef. TV hen it was found that there was no water on the island, and no prospect of relief, the captain called for volunteers to man a boat and try to reach Samoa, some I,SCO miles distant. Macdonald and four seamen volunteered, and reached Apia, whence assistance was sent out. The castaways had, however, in the meantime been rescued by another vessel. Mr Lyle, of tho North British Shipping Company, the owners of the Henry James, acknowledged the presentation on behalf cf Donald Macdonald. He remarked that Macdonald, when he sot out on tho voyage to Samoa, felt the extreme difficulty of the task ; it was tho fact that three of tho passengers—two little girls and their mother—were in a very precarious condition that induced him to undertake the hazardous enterprise. The privations of the voyage were fearful. One man had actually sucked his own blood ; others had eaten thrir boots and tho telescopo cover. Their sufferings were terrible. Mr Lyle re ferred to the futile efforts that had boon made to get the Board of Trade to acknowledge the bravery of tho men, and the gratification of his firm that Lloyd’s Committee had stepped in and done so, and gi\ on this medal. A writer in 1 Fair Play,’ commenting on tho affair, says ; - “ Our Board of Trade bestowed tilver medals on the officers and men of the Mariposa, whose duties merely consisted in meeting the boats from the island and transferring tho passengers to their own steamer in fire weather; hut they absolutely declined to take any notice whatever of tho gallant cor, duct of the mate, Macdonald, and his men, I am not surprised to hear this ; my old friends in Whitehall Gardens have a confirmed instinct for crass blundering.”
