How the Mont Notorlou Maroonrr of the
iMt century Lost All Hit Treaaore.
First of all upon the list of pirates
stands the bold Captain Ararr, one of
me insuiutors of marooning. Him we
?e but dimly, half hidlen by tie
glamouring mists of legend and tradi
tion. Others who came afterward out
stripped him far enough in their do
ings, but he stands pre-eminent as the
first of maroniicrs of whom actual hi
tory has been handed down to us of the
present day.
When the English. D-itch and Span
ish entered into an a'lUnco to suppress
buccaneering in the West Indies, cer
tain worthies of Bristol, in OA En
gland, fitted out two vessels to assist
in this laiidablo projeet; for doubtless
B istol trade suffered smartly from the
Morgans and the L'OIonoises of that
old time. One of these vcs-iels was
namod the Duke, of which a certain
Captain G b on was the commander
and Arary the ma' a.
Away they sailed to the West In
dies, and there Avary became im
pressed by the advantages offered by, and by the amount of good
things that were to be gained by very
little striving.
One night the captain (who was one
of those fellows mightily addicted to
ranch), instead of goin? ashore to sat
urate himself at the ordinary, had his
drink in his caUtt in private. While
he lay snoring away the effc? a of his
rum in the cabin. Arary and a few
other conspirators heaved tho anchor
very leisurely and sailed out of the
harbor of C .runna. and through the
midst of the allied fleet riding at an
chor in the darkness.
By and by, w hen the morning came,
tho captain was awakened by the
pitching anil tossing of the vessel,
tho rattle and clatter of the tackle
ovi rhead, and the noise of foolst p-pas-ing
and repassing hither and
thi! her across the di-ck.
-What's the matter?" bawls the
captain from hi berth.
Nothing." says Avary. coolly.
'Something's the matter with the
sh:p,' says tho captain. ' Docs she
drive? What wea'h' r is It?"
Oli, no," says Avary; "we are at
At sea?"
Come, come!" says Avary; 'Til
tell you; you must know that I'm the
captain cf tho ship now, and you
must be packing from this here cabin.
We are bound to Madagascar, to make
all of our fortunes, anl If you're a
mind to ship for the cruis why. we'll
be glad to have you. if you will be
sober snl mind your own business; if
not, there is a boat alongside, and Til
have you set ashore."
The pKr h:ilf-Kp;y captain had no
relish to go a-pirating un ler tho com
mand of his back-sliding ma e, so out
of the ship he bundled, and away he
rowed with four or rive of the crew,
who, like him. refused to join with
their jolly shipnia'e.
Hie rest of them sailed away to the
East I idies. Oa his way Avary
picked up a couple of like kind with
himself two sloops off Madagascar.
With tin 83 he sailed away to the coast
of India, and for a time his name was
lost in the obscurity of uncertain his
tory. B it only for a time, for sud
denly it flamed out in a blaza of glory.
It was reported that a vessel belong
ing to the Great Mogul, laden willi
treasure and bearing the monarch's
own daughter upon a holy pilgrimage
to M ;rca ( hey being MohammeJans)
had fallen in with the pirates, and a short resiatanco had been sur
rendered, with tho damsel, hor court,
and all the diamonds, pear's, siik.
silver and go'd aboard. It was
rumored that the Graat Mogul, raging
at the insult offered to him through his
own flesh and' btood, had threatened to
wipe out of existence the fow Eiglish
settlements scattered along the coast;
whereat the honorable India Com
pany was in a pretty s a e of fuss and
leathers. Kumor, growing with the
telling, has it that Avary is going to
marry the Indian Princess, willy-nilly,
and will tmn Rajah and eschew piract
as indecent. As for tho treasure it
self,. there is no end to tho extent to
which it grew as it passed from mouth
to mouth.
Cracking the nut of romace and
exaggeration, we come to the kernel
of the story that Avary did fa'l in
with an Indian vessel laden with grea
treasure (and possibly wi;h .the Mo
gul's daughter), which he captured,
and thereby gaine I a vast prize.
Having concluded that he had earned
enough money by the Iradj he had un
dertaken, he determined to rot ire
and live decently for the rest of his
1 fe upon what ho had already
At iirst Avary had a great part of a
mind to settle at Boston, in Massachu
setts, and had that little town been whit lc4 bleak and forbidding, it
might have had- the ho or of being
ihehomo of this famous man. As it
was, ho did not like the looks of it, so
he sailed away to tho eastward, to Ire
land, whero ho settled himself at Bid
deford, in hopes of an easy lifj of it for
tho rest of his days.
Here ho fuun 1 himself the possessor
of a plentiful stock of jewels, such as
pearls, diamonds, rubier, etc., but
with hard y a score of honest farthings
to jingle in his brecche pocket. IL
consulted with a certain merchant of
Bristol concerning the disposal of the
sfones a follow not much more
do inly in his habits of honesty than
Avary himself. This worthy under
took to act as Avary's broker. O J he
