From Eastern Province Herald of May 14
The brig 'Science' arrived here last night from the Bird Islands, having been obliged to part anchor and to put to sea during a very violent gale which was experienced Monday morning. This vessel still wanting 20 tons of guano to be loaded up and returns today to lay with another anchor from this port.
The crew of the 'Peruvian', the other vessel taking in guano at the Bird Islands, is reported to have mutinied. The men had got access, by some way, to a cask of rum, and had made themselves perfectly mad with the spirit, when they disobeyed all orders, and according to report threatened to go to sea without their captain. The captain managed to get them under, when he closed the hatches, and leaving the chief officer in charge went off to the 'Science' for assistance. We hear that in the scuffle which ensued the mate of the 'Peruvian' fired upon one of the sailors, who was aiming a hand-spike at him, and wounded him in the arm, after which the fury of the others abated and some subordination was effected. The mate, to whom the greatest credit seems due for the firmness with which he acted on this occasion, is at present in entire charge of the 'Peruvian'.
