Phew! 1862.

[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

Saved from Death.—In the afternoon of Tuesday, the 12th of March, while Hokulele, the double-masted ship carrying salt was in the sea outside of Waianae, water was seen coming in from the side, and in a very short time, the ship was about to sink; at that time, the men jumped into the skiff of the ship with their belongings. There were four men on board the ship and the skiff of the ship was large enough for them to ride, and so luckily escaped. They were wandering upon the sea when they were come upon by the Moi Wahine when it was returning from Kauai. They escaped death upon that ship, and they sailed here to Honolulu on this past 13th.
