The rod lips parted, nnd the Mild
eyes, brighter than ever, stared vacant
ly around. The sound of her father's
iolce seemed to have reused her, for she
began to spook a llttlo prayer: "Ooil
Mom papa nnd mamma, and Ood bless
nil on )oanl this ship. God bless me.
and make me Rood girl, for Jesus Christ's
sake, our Lord. Atneii."
The sound of the unconscious child'
simple prayer had something mvwoiiw
In It, and John Vlcker, who not ten
minutes before would hare sealed his
own death warrant unhesitatingly to pre
serve the safety of the vessel, felt hl
eyes All with unwonted tear. The con
trast was curious. From out the midst
of that desolate ocean In a fevcr-smlt-ten
prison ship, league from land, sur
rounded by ruffians, thieve and mur
derers the baby voice of an Innocent
child called confidently on heaven.
Two hours afterward as the Mala
bar, escaped fnm the peril which had
menaced her, plunged cheerily through
the. rippling water the mutineers, by
their spokesman, Mr. Jauic-i Vetch, con
'They were Tery sorry, and hoped
that their breach of discipline would be
forgiven. It was the fear of the typhus
which had driven them to It. They had
no accomplices either In the prison or
out of It, but they felt It but right to
say that the man who had planned the
mutiny was Hufus Dawes."
The malignant cripple had guessed
from whom the Information which had
led to tho failure of the plot had been
derived, and this was his characteristic
Extracted from the llobart Town
"The examination of the prisoners
who were concerned In the attempt upon
the Malabar was concluded on Tuesday
last. The four ringleaders, Dawes, Gab
bett, Vcteh and Sanders, were condemn
ed to death; but we understand that, by
the clemency of his excellency the gov
ernor, their sentence has been commut
ed to six years at the penal settlement
of Macquarie Harbor."
The southeast coast of Van Diemen's
Land resembles a biscuit at which rats
have been nibbling. Kitten away by the
continual action of the ocean which,
touring round by east and west, has di
vided the peninsula from the mainland
of the Australasian continent, the shore
line is broken and ragged. From the
sentinel solitude of the Iron Tot to the
smiling banks of New Norfolk, the river
winds In a sluccessiou of reaches, nar
rowing to a deep channel cleft between
rugged and towering cliffs.
The climate of Van Dlemeu's Land Is
one of the loveliest In the world. Laun
ceston Is warm, sheltered and moist; and
llobart Town, protected by Iiruny Isl
and and its archipelago of D'Encas
treaux Channel and Storm Hay from the
violence of the southern breakers, pre
serves the mean temperature of Smyrna;
while the district between these two
towns spreads in a succession of beau
tiful valleys, through which glide clear
and sparkling stream. But on the
western coast, from the steeple rocks
of Cape Grim to the scrub encircled
barrenness of Handy Cape, and the
frowning entrance to Maequarie Har
bor, the nature of the country entirely
changes. Along that iron bonnd shore,
nil is bleak and oheertvss. Upon that
dreary beach the rollers of the southern
sea complete their circuit of the globe,
and the storm that has devastated the
cape, and united In its eastern course
with the ley blast which sweep north
ward from the unknown terrors of the
southern pole, crashes unchecked upon
the Iluun pine forests, ami lash with
lain the grim front of Mouut Direction.
I urlous gale and sudden tempest
nlfnght the native of the coast. Nav
igation is daugerous, and the entrance
to the "Hell's Gates" of Maurh
Harbor 1$ only to be attempted la calm
"Hell' Gates," formed by a rocky
jK)lnt, which runs abruptly northward,
nlmost touches, on its eastern side, a
projecting arm of land whleh guards the
entrance to King's river. In the mid
dle of the gates Is an island, which,
lying on a sandy bar in the very jaws
of the current, creates a double whirl
pool, Impossible to pass In the roughest
weather. The headquarters of the set
tlement wero placed on an Island not
far from the mouth of this inhospitable
river, called Sarab Island.
Sarah Island is long and low. The
commandant's house was built In the
center, having the chaplain's house and
barracks between It and the jail. The
hospital was on the west shore, and In
a line with It lay the two penitentiaries.
Llues of lofty palisades ran round the
settlement, giving It tho appearance of
n fortified town. These palisades were
built for the purpose of warding off the
terrific blasts of wind, which, shrieking
through the long and narrow bay as
through tho keyhole of a door, bad In
former times torn off roofs, and lev
eled boat shed. The little town was
net, as it were, In defiauco of nature,
nt the very extreme of civilization, and
its Inhabitants maintained perpetual
warfare with the winds and wares.
Hut the jail of Sarah Island was not
the only prison in this desolate region.
At a llttlo distance from tho mainland
is a rock, over the rade sido of which
lite wares dnsh iu rough weather. On
nn evening In December, as the sun was
sluklng behind the treo tops on tho left
aide of the harbor, the figure of a man
appeared on tho top of this rock. He
wai clad in tho coarse garb of n con
vice, and wore round his ankles two
Iron rings, connected by a short nnd
heavy chain. To the middle of this chain
n lost horn strap was attached, which,
splitting In the form of n T, buckled
round his waist, and pulled tho chain
high enough to prevent him from stum
bling over It as he walked. Ills head
was bare-, and his coarse, blue striped
-hlrt, open nt the throat, displayed an
embrowned nnd muscular neck. Kmerg
Ing from out n sort of cell, or den. con
trived by nnturo or art In the side o(
the cliff, he threw on a scanty fire,
which burned between two hollowed
rocks, a small log of pine wood; and
then, returning to his cave, and bring
ing from It an Iron pot which contained
water, he scooped with his toll hardened
hands a retting place for It in the ashes,
and placed It on the embers. It was
evident that the cave was at onco his
storehouse and larder, and that the two
hollowed rocks formed his kitchen.
Having thus made preparations for
supper, he ascended n pathway which
led to the highest point of the rock. Ills
fetters compelled him to take short steps,
nnd, ns he walked, he winced ns though
the Iron bit him. A handkerchief ot
strip of cloth was twisted round his left
ankle, on whleh the circlet had chafed
a sore. I'alnfully and slowly he gained
his destination, nnd, tllnglng himself on
the ground, gased around him, A brig
was being towed up the harbor by two
The sight of this brig seemed to rott-
In the mind of the solitary of the rock
n strain of reflection, for, sinking hit
chin upon his hand, he fixed his eyes on
the Incoming vessel, and Immersed him
self In moody thought. Tho ship an
chored, the boats detached themselvei
from her sides, the sun sunk, and the bay
was plunged In gloom. Lights began to
twinkle along the shore of the settle
ment The little tire died, and the water
in the Iron pot grew cold; yet the watch
er on the rock did not stir. With his
eyes staring Into tho gloom, and Axed
steadily on the vessel, he lay along the
barren cliff ot his lonely prison as mo
tionless as the rock on which he had
This solitary man was Itufus Dawn
In the home of Major Vlcker, com
mandant of Maci-uario Harbor, then
was, on this evening of December, un
usual gayety. Lieut. Maurice Frere,
late in command at Maria Island, had
unexpectedly como down with news
from headquarters. The Ladybird, gov
ernment schooner, visited the settlement
on ordinary fucuslona, twice a year. To
the convicts the arrival ot the Ladybird
meant arrival of new faevs, intelligence
of old -comrades, news( of how the world
from which they were exiled, was pro
gressing. When the Ladybird arrived,
the chained and toil-worn felons felt
that thejr were yet human, that the uni
verse was not bounded by tho gloomy
forests which surrounded their prison,
but that there was a work beyond. To
the convicts the Ladybird was town
talk, theater, stock quotations ami latest
telegrams. She was their newspaper,'
postotDcc, tho one excitement of their
dreary existence, the one link between
their own misery and the happiness of
their fellow creatures. To the com
mandant and the "freemen" this mes
senger from the outer life was scarcely
les welcome. There was not a man on
the Island who did not feel hi heart
grow heavier when her white sail dis
appeared behind the shoulder of the
On the present occasion buine of
more than ordinary importance hail pro
cured for Major Vleker this pleasurable
exehenteut. It had be resolved by
Gov. Arthur that the convict establish
meat should be broken up. A sttcce-ton
of murders and attempted escape had
called public attention to the place, and
it dlstaiieu from llobart Town render
ed It inconvenient and expeosive. Ar
thur bad fixed upon Teaman's penin
sula as a future eonvlet depot, and nam
ing It I'ort Arthur, In honor of himself,
had sent down Lieut. Maurlee Frere
with instructions for Vlcker to convey
the prisoners of Maequarle Harbor
Keren classes of criminals were es
tablished, when the new barracks for
prisoners at llobart Town were finished.
The first class were allowed to sleep
out of barracks, and to work for them
selves on Saturday; the secoud bad only
the last-named Indulgence; the third
were ouly allowed Saturday afternoon;
the fourth and fifth wore "refractory
and disorderly characters to work In
Irous;" the sixth were "men of the most
degraded and Incorrigible character to
be worked In Irons and kept entirely
separate from the other prisoners;"
while the seventh were the refuso of
this refuse the murderers, bandits and
villains, whom tilther chain nor lash
could tame. They wero regarded a so
cially dead, and shipped to Hell's Gates
or Maria Island. Hell's Gates was the
most dreaded of all these houses of
bondage. The discipline at tho placo
was so severe, and the life so terrible,
that prisoner would risk nil to escape
from It. In one year, of eighty -11 ro
deaths there, only thirty were from nat
ural causes; of the remaining dead,
twenty-eeven were drowned, eight killed
accidentally, three shot by the soldiers,
and twelve murdered by their comrades.
In another year one hundred and sixty
nine men out of one hundred and eighty
two wero punished to tho extent of two
thousand lashes. During the ten years
of Its exlstcuce ono hundred and twelve
men escaped, out of whom Uty two only
wero found dead. Tho prisoners killed
themselves to avoid living nny longer,
and, If so fortunate as to penetrate the
desert of scrub, heath nnd swamp which
lay between their prison nnd tho settled
districts, preferred death to recapture.
Successfully tn transport tho remnant of
this desperate Ixuid of doubly convicted
fo-lons to Arthur's new prison was tho
mission of Maurice Frere.
"Well, Mrs. VIckers." he said, ns ho
took n cup of ttw from the hiiuds of that
bidy, "I suppose jou won't bo sorry to
gtt nway from this place, eh?"
"No, Indeed," says oor Mr. VIck
ers, with the old glrftshue shariowc 1
by six years; "I shall be only too g'nri.
A dreadful placet John's duties, how
ever, nre Imperative, lint the wind! My
dear Mr. Frere, you've no Idea of It,
I wanted to send Sjlvln to llobart Town,
but John would not let her go."
"Ity the way, how Is Miss Sylvia 7"
naked Frere, with the patronising nlr
whleh men of his stamp adopt when they
speak of children.
"Not very well, I'm sorry to say," re
turned Vlcker. "You see, It's lonely
for her here. There are no children of
her own nge, .with the exception of the
pilot's little girl, nnd she cillliiot Asso
ciate with her. Hut 1 did not like to
leave her behind, and endeavored to
teach her myself."
"Hum! Thoro wns a hn governess,
or something, was there not?" said
Frere, staring Into his teacup. "That
maid, you know what was hor name?"
"Miss I'urfoy." said Mrs. Vlckors, n
little gravely. "Yes, poor thing; n sad
story, Mr. Frore."
"Indeed! I left, you know, shortly
after the trial of the mutineers, nnd
never heard the full particular." Ho
spoke carelessly, but ho nwnlted the re
ply with keen curiosity.
"A sad story!" repeated Mr. VIck
ers. "She wns the wife of that wretch
ed man, Hex, and crime out its my maid
In order to bo near him. She would
never tell me her history, poor thing,
though all through the dreadful accusa
tions made by that horrid doctor, I beg
ged her almost on my knee. You know
how she nursed Sylvia nnd poor John.
Iteally a most superior creature. I think
she must have been n governess. Her
conduct was most exemphiry, and dur
ing the six mouths we were In Hehert
Town she taught little Sylvia a great
deal. Of course she could not help her
wretched husband, you know. Could
"Certainly not!" said Frere. heartily.
"I hoard something about him. too. Got
Into some scrape, did he not?"
"MUs Furfoy, or Mr. Hex, as she
really was, though I don't suppose Hex
Is her real name, cither, eame Into a
little legacy from an old aunt In Eng
land and left my servke. She took a
little cottage on tho New Town road,
and Hex was assigned to her as her
"I sc. The old dodge!" says Frere,
flushing a little. "Well?"
"Well, the wretched man tried to es
cape, and she helped him. He was to
get to Launceston, and so on Ixwrd
vessel to Sydney; but they took tho
unhappy creature, ami he was sent down
here. She was only fined, but it ruined
her. You see, only a few people know
of her relationship to Hex, and sho was
rather respected. Of course, when It be
camo known, what with that dreadful
trial and the horrible assertions of Dr.
Pine you will not believe me, I know;
there was something aboHt that man
I never liked she was quite left alone.
She wanted me to bring her down here
to teach Sylvia, but John thought that
it wn only to be near her hiuUnd, and
wouldn't allow it."
"Of course It was," said Vlekers, Is
Ing. "Frere, we'll go on the veranda.
She will never be satisfied until she gets
that scoundrel free."
"He's a bad hit, then?" says Frere,
opening the glass window ami loading
the way to the sandy garden.
"Oh, a very bad lot." rotnrnod VIck
ers; "quiet and silent, but ready for any
villainy. I count hn otto of the worst
meet we have. With tho exception of
one or two more, I think he U tho

"I ent the kld-i off wy fellows If they
show any nonsense."
"Well," says VIckers. "I don't ear
alwut too much cat myself, llarton, woh
was here before me, Hogged tretoend
ously, but I don't thing It did any good.
They tried to kill hint several time.
You remember those twelve fellows who
were hanged? No! Ah, of course you

"Oh, flog the worst, you know; but I
don't flog more than a man h week ns
a rule, and never more than fifty lashes.
They're getting quieter now. Then wu
Iron, and dumb-ells, and maroon them."
"Give them solitary confinement on
Grummet Island. When .a man get
very bad, we clap him Into a boat with
a week' provisions, and pull him over
to Grummet. There ore cells cut In the
rock, you see, and the fellow pulls up
bis commissariat after him, and live
there by himself for a month or o. It
tames them wonderfully."
"Does It?" snld Frere. "If a capital
notion. I wish I had a place of that
ort at Maria."
"I've a fellow there now," ay Vlck
er, "Dawe. You remember him, of
course the ringleader of the mutiny In
the Malabar. A droa'dful rutllnn. He

was here. Harton used to flog a good
deal, and Dawos had a childish dread
of the cat. When I came, he'd made a
sort of petition to be sent back to tho
settlement. Said that he was Innocent
of the mutiny, and that the accusation
against him was fulso."
