The News from the Atlantic.

The news from the Atlantic States by the Brother Jonathan is very meagre. Nothing is transpiring in the political world, as there seems to be but one party to say anything, and that party thus far holds together so well that so signs of discord come to light. The Virginia Delegation, just elected to Congress, is entirely democratic, so that in both houses of Congress there will not be a solitary Whig from old Virginia. Surely the Whig party is pretty nearly of the things that were.

The circulation of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," having been prohibited in the Pope's dominions, the New York Herald thinks that the Pope must in like manner prohibit the author, and then the government may be called upon the maintain her rights. It is hardly probably that the peace of the world will be disturbed by "Uncle Tom," or its author.

A Convention consisting of Andrew Jackson Davis, William Lloyd Garrison, with Abbey Kelly and other strong minded women, was recently held at Hartford, Conn., to take into consideration the authenticity of the Bible. It was characterized by all the virulence and infidelity that have rendered such assemblages a disgrace to the people that engage in them.

The passengers on board the ship William and Mary, recently wrecked off the Great Isaacs, and whom it was feared were lost with the ship, were saved by a wrecking schooner, while the ship was drifting, just before she sunk.

Lieut. Whipple, with several assistants, left Washington on the 30th May for Fort Smith, Arkansas, where immediately upon arrival he will organize his party and proceed to survey the Pacific railroad route via Albuquerque . . .

The Maine Liquor Law was laid on the table in the Senate of New York by the casting vote of the President. The effect will be equivalent to indefinite postponement.

Madame Alboni left New York on the 1st of June for Europe, in the Africa. She has been a year in the country, and carries out of it $20,000 in exchange for her singing.

The Crystal Palace, 1850s.

The Crystal Palace will be completed and opened to the public on the 15th of July, according to the New York Herald.

Delegates to the Memphis Convention have been chosen in all the important cities of the South. One important object of this convention is to make Memphis or some other Southern port the terminus of the Pacific Railroad. The New Orleans people do not appear to like this idea, as it will not conduce especially to the prosperity of that city to have Memphis the great inland city of the Mississippi. Col. Benton, who is mortally opposed to Memphis, has gone to Washington to finish his book, treating the Convention with contempt. Whether he supposed his voice would not be heeded if he attended it or despised the influence of the Convention as too insignificant to merit his attention is not known.

The Sea Chart: The Illustrated History of Nautical Maps and Navigational ChartsThe Sea Chart.
The Sea Chart.John Blake
The sea chart was one of the key tools by which ships of trade, transport and conquest navigated their course across the oceans. John Blake looks at the history and development of the chart and the related nautical map, in scientific and aesthetic terms, as a means of safe and accurate seaborne navigation. Contains 150 color illustrations including the earliest charts of the Mediterranean made by 13th Century Italian merchant adventurers, as well as 18th Century charts that became strategic naval and commercial requirements and led to Cook's voyages in the Pacific, the search for the Northwest Passage, and races to the Arctic and Antarctic.

Shanghaiing Days: The Thrilling Account of 19th Century Hell-Ships, Bucko Mates and Masters, and Dangerous Ports-Of-Call from San Francisco Shanghaiing Days, Dillon.Shanghaiing Days in San Francisco.
Richard H. Dillon
In the last quarter of the 19th Century, American Merchant Marine went into a decline, and sailors were forced to serve under conditions that were little better than serfdom. Seamen were exploited in wholesale fashion, disfranchised of almost all their civil and human rights, and brutally punished forminor offenses. Successful skippers turned into slave drivers, cracking down on the sailors, sometimes even murdering their "hands." Though captains were legally prohibited from flogging their crews, they did not hesitate to wield belaying pins, marlin spikes, or bare fists. The seamen's lot was so horrible that entire crews jumped ship when in port. New crews were kidnaped, crimped, or shanghaied from the unsuspecting populace of the ports. These "impressed" or "hobo" crews were still further conspired against. They often had their wages stolen from them; they were poorly fed and clothed. Their lives became "hell afloat and purgatory ashore." Our "first and finest employ" in colonial days was turned into a disreputable profession-one that was classed with criminals and prostitutes.

Atlantic: Great Sea Battles, Heroic Discoveries, Titanic Storms, and a Vast Ocean of a Million Storiessea captains and ships.
Simon Winchester
"Variably genial, cautionary, lyrical, admonitory, terrifying, horrifying and inspiring. A lifetime of thought, travel, reading, imagination and memory inform this affecting account." Kirkus Reviews
Blending history and anecdote, geography and reminiscence, science and exposition, the New York Times bestselling author tells the breathtaking saga of the Atlantic Ocean, setting it against the backdrop of mankind's intellectual evolution. Until a thousand years ago, no humans ventured into the Atlantic or imagined traversing its vast infinity. But once the first daring mariners successfully navigated to far shores whether it was the Vikings, the Irish, the Chinese, Christopher Columbus in the north, or the Portuguese and the Spanish in the south the Atlantic evolved in the world's growing consciousness as an enclosed body of water bounded by the Americas to the West, and by Europe and Africa to the East. Atlantic is a biography of this immense space, of a sea which has defined and determined so much about the lives of the millions who live beside or near its tens of thousands of miles of coast.

The Rebel Raiders
The Astonishing History of the Confederacy's Secret NavyThe Confederacy's Secret Navy.
James T. deKay
The Rebel Raiders.During its construction in Liverpool, the ship was known as Number 290. When it was finally unleashed as the CSS Alabama, the Confederate gunship triggered the last great military campaign of the Civil War, yet another infamous example of British political treachery, and the largest retribution settlement ever negotiated by an international tribunal: $15,500,000 in gold paid by Britain to the United States. This riveting true story of the Anglo-Confederate alliance that led to the creation of a Southern navy illuminates the dramatic and crucial global impact of the American Civil War. Like most things in the War between the States, it started over cotton: Lincoln's naval blockade prevented the South from exporting their prize commodity to England. In response, the Confederacy came up with a plan to divert the North's vessels and open the waterways; a plan that would mean covertly building a navy in Britain with a cast of clandestine characters.

History of Seafaring.The History of Seafaring: Navigating the World's Oceans
History of Seafaring.Donald Johnson and Juha Nurminen
Royal prestige, intellectual curiosity, and territorial expansion all propelled mankind to undertake perilous voyages across unpredictable oceans. This large and lavishly illustrated volume brings that history to life. From the early Phoenician navigation techniques to the technologies behind today's mega-ships, the greatest advances in shipbuilding are covered, accompanied by hundreds of images, with an in-depth look at navigational instruments (including those used by the Vikings).
