sail r It was the first that we bad seen
since we had fairlj got .away from .Syd
ney, and therefore it excited unusual
interest- The captain bade the man at
the wheel change the course a point In
the westward, that we might make sure
of speaking the welcome stranger: and
when we came on deck again after
breakfast ever glass on board was
leveled at her, and the signal-box was
got out in readiness. We made the
Granger out to be a low black brig. ith
a round stern, a white quaiter-rail, aud
verj rakish masts the lower masts
painted white. The spanker wxs brailed
up, put all other canvass, except stud
donsails, was set even a cotton main
A-v-snil. The brisr flew no bunting of
any kind; but something in the cut of
her double top-sails, and the build of her
hull and white deck-houses, led the ex
perts on board our ship to prouounce
her a Yankee. In vain did we run up
our fluttering lines of gay, parti-colored
little signal-flags. Up and down they
went with good-tempered patience, but
the brig's gatf still obstinately con
tinued dumb. Not a man or boy
could we get a glimpse of on board
her: and the way in which she was
sailed was most un-Yankec-like, unless
there was some piratical purpose in it.
Now she was kept full, now she fell off
her course with flapping canvas, and
sometimes she slewed round, head on to
the wind, and she was regularly taken
aback. Then prcsenllyshe would forge
round, fill again, aad slant off on another
tack. If vessels could get tipsy and
one has heard of a lightship ou might
have said that the brig had taken too
miieb rroz on board. Her remarkable
manoeuvres puzzled us sorel at first,
but presently our eaplain said, con cen con
tempteously: Pirates! Not much of
that, I reckon. It's my belief that every
one on loard is upset."-'-They were

knowledge that I felt queer at first when
the davit-blocks were unhooked, and
we had pushed off and were pulling
away. For one thing, as the- light boat
was "sent up like a foam-bell on the un
fitiinmifl waves. I began to fear as to
whether I had not boasted too soon of
never being sea-sick. For another, the
waste of weltering waters, with no visi
ble bottom or shore to reassure a lands
man's eye, seemed so drearily boundless,
in spite of the sunlight on them the.

man at the wheel had had his
course given him. the rest of us com
menced our inspection. The brig looked
most dismally lonely both aloft and
alow. The only living thing above deck
was a big ape in the foretop. which
showed its teeth, and jabbered down at
us as if it had been frightened out of its
wife, mid thenslipped through the lub
ber hole, and curled itself up between
the mast aud the futlock-shroucs. Both
tke deck-houses were empty The bunks
had been stripped. A pair of sea-boots,
a sea-chest with the lid smashed in, a
black cutty-pipe, and a litter of rub
bish, were the only contents in either, j
In the galley vns half a bucketful
of turned rice: and a panni
kin, with a drop of .something blown in
it that tasted like rum and coffee, stood
on the stove. The main hatehwaj was
epen: Ihe combings and part of the
deck close hv were charred; a wiry
little of the cargo had also been burned.
When we had eleareil away uiegrea-y
black ashes that laj on the lop, we came
upon charred hides. Then- were luovn
red splashes and spots, plainly of dried
ui i blood, upon tin deck: a sailor's
grea-y knife-sheath; a pewter walch-ca-e.
trodden out of shape; a heap of
biscuit-crumb3, with footmarks in it;
and a half-burned envelope, with
. .h 1 I plar" alone Irgiblc upon
it. Here and there we found a bullet
in the bulwarks, that must luncheon
fired on beard: aud on one of the In
laying pins thero was a bloody wisp of
gray hair. The water-casks bad been
started, and we could find no stores.
Before wc looked for them, however,
L. had taken as much sail as he could
off the brig, for the w cathcr had changed,
and the wind was freshening rather
disagreeably. The men tried to catch
the "ipo when they went aloft; but he
swung himself from rope to rope, rest
ed for a moment to jabber at them, aud
then again sought some unsociable nook
of refuge. The blending of fear and
ferocity in his eyes was something hor
rible to witness. 'The muckle bcastie
is na canny.' said a compatriot member
of L.'s crew, sanely shaking his huge,
"ray-eyed, sandy-thatched, Aberdonian
head. Before we hunted for the stores,
too. we had been down in the cabin,
and had seen a sight there which 1 shall
not easily forget.
Fpou the floor, muter the table, la a
green-painted iron box, with the lid
prized off the hinges. A cane bottomed
lounging-chair, with a taper white fore
finger clinging, blood-glued, to a rail of
the caryed back, was overturned in one
corner of the cabin. In another, on it
back, lay the corpse of a man a short,

frightfully battered in ; and his shirt and

he was riddled. The tlej.li on the back

Last Friday afternoon Chas. Sav
age left Knappa in a skiff, whero he
had been on a hunting expedition,
and when almost abreast of Tongue
Point and in the middle of the liver,
his Bkiff capsized, leaving him strug
gling in the waler. He struck out for
the shore when a passing plunger
rescued him. He says he never could
Uave reached the shore, as he was be
coming numbed and exhausted, but
for tho timely arrival of the plunger.
Thursday afternoon the clothes
of a little daughter of Mrs. A. J.
Fowler, living near Mount Coffin on
tho Columbia river, caught fire, and
soon her body was enveloped in flame.
The mother, seizing a blanket, ran to
the child and partially smothered the
blaze, which she afterwards extin
guished with water; but in her efforts,
Mrs. Fowler's hands were burned to
the bone, and tho skin from all the
fingers peeled off. She was brought
to Portland on Friday, and taken to
across the watery wilderness when tho
little boat danced off from the big ship :
;c.Mr lnnVini? .so insicnifie-aiit, when
seen from the outside, heaving on the
vast ocean, beneath the vast sky, that
had only one another to limit them, and
that with a dreamy vagueness wuicn
suggested limitless sea and sky beyond.
I gazed ruefully at the familiar faces
clustered along the bulwarks, and when
these faces vanished, as the boat slid
down into, the

for our chase. A nice chase she led us,
jigging and reeling about as she did.
Time atter time the mate had to alter
the direction of the boat's nose. At last,
however, as wc topped a ridge crisping
into white foam for its fall, wc saw the
brig bearing right down upon us. ."she
was clipper built below the water line,
but had bluff, almost apple uow.s auove;
and the spray which her sharp cut-water
threw up painted their blistered tar with
rainbows. About she staggered again,
when she had almost run us dowu, and

boat bumped against her weather side.

that could give the least clew. The.
brig did not carry her name upon her

wrenched ofl', and all her boats weie

that shed ay addilloiuil light upon the
awful tragedy that had been enacted on
that cramped stage, was a photograph
in the sleeping-berth. It had fallen
between the battens of a tumbled
buuk; but the open lid oi us i ase

was the likeness of an exceedingly
