FRANCISCO UE LA VEGA, THK FISH HAN. The power of man to adapt himself to new, and indeed unnatural modea of life, has long attracted the serious attention of the philoso pher Some hare thought it possible for him to lire in the water like a whale ; and in sup port of this theory the extraordinary aquatio feats of the Greenlanders, and the inhabitant* of the shores of the Mediterranean, the South Sea Islanders, and the Chinese have been pointed to Many men hare been knowu to swim thirty miles a day; and the famous Neapolitan diver, commonly called II Ptsee, once performed the distance of fifty miles in twenty-four hours, on the coast of Calabria At various periods strange reports have be?n spread relative to human beings who have been found living either in sea. caves, or on the bosom of the mighty deep itself; and amid the numerous examples brought forward to provo this amphibious nature of man. prob ably none is more curious than the following. But let us premise that it is no offspring of the present writer's imagination. Whether the anecdote be in itself absolutely true, or an exaggerated account of a singular and somewhat startling occurrence, we cannot pre tend to determine; but we can undertake to suy that no doubt was entertained on the sub i ct by ootemporary writers, and that it bos b 'en treated as an established fact by Tie< k ti e German poet. If you open the map of Spain on the south ern shore of the Bay of Biscay, between A Jtu and Old Castile, you will find the San Undcr not far distant from Santillana, tho birth place cf our old friend Oil Bias ; and in close proximity to S*ntat:der, you will see the Dame c.f Lierganes. This is a place of no particular interest, except what it derives trora its connection with the following nttrra The surruunding cenery is mountain ous, iin'l the landscape stretchcd down through I ic.uresquo valleys to the sea. 1It?. two Lundrcd years ago, lived a poor but honest ouplc named Francisco de la Vega ar. 1 Ma his wife, together with thnr four j^rs, Phonies?who was already a priest?Joseph. Pranui.-co and Juan. Francisco, named after Lis father, was bora ?: the year 1057. and SvX>n be^an to evince a 1 vonderful predilection for the water. Even I ? a eiirly youth be was constantly citber bath- i rig or ai>gling in the river that flowj through , ^ he district. The same year that ushcrel t ?<:ung Francisco into the world saw the last of f lis male progenitor, so that the task of main- | t .lining ber family mainly rested with Maria ; j ind her son's indolence was the source of con- * tant grief to the p>or woman. In vain did # ue exert herself to send him to school; the ;<>od for nothing fellow was constantly seen | ^ luring study hours either swimming or loiter- | t' ng about his favorite stream At length poor j ^ laria lost all patience with her child, and in j ^ moment of frenry she cursed him. bidding iim betake himself altogether to the sea, and , et his living there, as he was of no use on ^ arth. Now, a mother's curse is a fearful ^ bing anywhere; but among southern nations i f uore especially there is a superstitious feel- j ^ ng attached to it, which often drives the vie- . im on to fulfil his own doom But whatever ? j nfiuence his mothers words may subsequent y have exercised on his fate, Francisco re uained quietly at homo until he bad a'.taine i he age of fifteen, when he was sent to Bilbao, 0 le.iru the handicraft of a carpenter This own is not very far removed from Santander, j " nd has always enjoyed a high reputation for " he excellence of its sword and steel manufac- 1 ure As might have been anticipated, the young pprentico showed no greater love of work a.t iilbao than he had previou?Iy displayed un ler the maternal roof He was constantly rasting his time in the river, neglecting his uties. and consequently causing great dissat - taction to his master. In this manner ho ontinued to live for a couple of years, until ne afternoon he went out with some compan ions to bathe It was on mid-summer day, V L> 1674, says the chroniclers, when this vent < ccurred. After enjoying the luxury of 1 somewhat prolonged bath, his companions ame on shore and dressed themselvaa, and rere rather surprised not to see Francisco inong their number. They waited a considerable time for their ui-sing comrade, and at length returned to he town, leaving bis clothes on the bank vbere he had deposited them The unusual absence of his apprentice now began to alarm he honest mechanic, who caused inquiries to ,e instituted regarding him, but all tQat could je gathered was that he had been swimming lowu the river at a great distance of Bilboa, ind as nothing further was heard of the un ortunate youth, the natural inference was hat he had cither become exhausted, or had jeeii seiied with craiup and so had fallen a rictim to his passion for the water. The carpenter took the earliest opi>ortunity f infoimiug poor Maria of tho probable tate ?f ber son ; and the g?,od folks her neighbor >hook their he:ids. and said that the mother's ?ur'e had been fulfilled Maria de la Vev?, a ber affliction, now denied that sbe had ever nado um of the dreadful words ascribed to icr, and some of her friends corroborated the ftatement Be this as it ui?y. the honest wo man gradually recovered from the shock the iad sustained ; and convinced of Francisco s l;:'.th, people ceased to talk about it, and all '^collection of the wayward boy was rapidly ading away. Five years had elapsed, when a singular oc ?urrence happened on the opposite cost of *pain (,ne morning, in the year 1879, *ome iihertnen from Cadiz were pursuing their usual avocations, anil had already cast their aets, when they perceived a strange object in the distance The figure moved, appeared < n the surface then dived under water, where it remained for a considerable period In ap pearance it rtrougiy resembled a human be lug; and the boatmen pulled further out to lea in order to take a more minute survey of their new acquaintance, and. if 1 oasible, to ;ntch him ; but as be did not appear again, they returned to shore at their usual hour. Having mentioned their adventure over night, they were accompanied next morning by sev eral of their acquaintances, all anxious to bave a look at tnis strange being In this they wore not disappointed, for it soon showed itself in the wator?now approaching, now re treating?then plurgirg underneath, then re upi earing ; and alter i >iug tnrough a variety of these gambols, as if in pastime, it finally vanished from view When the fishermen again returned with this news, the public cu riosity was raised to its hi*heit pitch, and all sorts of means were devised in order to catch the monster. At length it was unanimously ngreed that larger and stouter nets should be taken out, and that other boats, stealing across the bay from the oppo.ite side, should endeavor to drive the animal into them Al leady the water ghost, as it w ia called, formed the main ful ject of conversation in the sur jounding country, and the authorities were natually anxious to solve, if possible, the mjstery On the third day it made Its ap pearance again, and remained longer than usual on tbe surface The fishermen now threw pieces of bread into the sea, which it rapidly caught hold of and devoured with ap parent relish; for on flinging other slices overboard, the monster gradually approached nearer and nearer, until it finally came close to one boat as to get suddenly entanglei and caught in the net. . . The men. delighted at the auceesiB, baulea their priie into the boat, when, to their 6 astonishment, they found the aea i whom their paginations had pic" a fish, nothing more nor less > . , t ry k.i?, ?Uk notbtnjof ??

They ad dressed him. first of all, in the language of the country, then in French, Italian and all other dialect* ; but the wild man did not re ply a single sound ; appeared not to comnre hfcnd in the slightest degree what was said to him ; and altogether bore on hi> fare the ex predion of perfect imbecility A pious monk now bethinking himself that be waa possibly ry.ssesscd of an evil spirit, aet to work with the oust* rnary solemnities for driving cat dev ils ; but nil the holy friar's efforts proved un availing. and did not seem to produce the slightest impression upon this stupid being. In thiri manner he continued to live for a>me days in the convent, fed and clothed by Um benevolent Franciscans lie waa perfectly harmless ; allowed them to do whatever they pleased with him ; but nothing he saw or bear ! cause i in him the least apparent inter est. Various men of rank visited theoonvent in order to see him; but they oould find no clue to bis identity?where be oame from, or what he bad been a After the first excitement bad s^mewbet subsided, he one day suddenly pronounced, in a distinct tone of voice, the name of Lier fanes This word he repeated aeveral times, out no one present knew what he desired to ntimate by it, as the little town, obacurely i uitcd in a remote district of the kingdom, eas j erfecily unknown to the good monks Uncollect the country was Spain, and the cen ury the seventeenth, and you will not be sur irised at this wantol geographical knowledge >n the part of tbe holy brotherhood. But it so chanced that a young workman in ?adiz bearing every one talking about this t:ange being, and the unintelligible ex{>res lion be bad male use of. informed hi* oom > mions that he himself came from a place ullvd and that it was a small town n the uorth of Spain, not far from Santillana This news jT?duce^ a gr?at effect; and the risi men now began to conjecture, that as heir gu?et had used only one word, and this r rd the name nf a village, the probability i as that be waa born there. They thereupon ir<<te to the Secretary of the Inquisition, hira olf n native of Lierrfanes, giving htm all the >articulars of the aff iir. This gentleman im mediately interested himself in the business , nd as he happened to kuow something of the liioily of Maria de la Vega, and had beard of tie mysterious disappearance of her s->n Fran isco, he wrote to the widow and her children, ? ask them whether, during the last five ears, they have received any tidings of their aissing relative. They replied in the neg tive. and that every one, both at LiergaaM nd Bilbao, considered that be waa drowned ; jT that, on the oecasion of his laat bathing in be river, after having been seen swimming own the strcaer, all traces of him had van bed, and hi* clothes alone remained on the bore. The Secretary, Don Domingo, reported this ntelligense to the monks of the convent at lidii, with wh^m he found the man fish bad ow been staying for some considerable period if er the lapse of several months, a friar, also ie.ongingto the Franciscan order, arrived one ay at the convent. This friar, Juan Roeende \y name, bad just returned from a pilgrimage >? Jerusalem and s?on made acquaintance rith the appirer.t idiot, whom he to>k under lis especial charge. He learned his history, Litd also what had occurred years ago at Bil >ao; and a? the good friar was about to under ?ke a journey on foot through the provinces f Spain, for thepurp se < f collecting alms for be iloly Places in Palestine, he took his duml> ><>rtege with him, thinking it possible that he light turn out to be the lost youth of Lier anea. In thi? manner the two companions traveled h rough the whole of Spain on f jot, and it ras only in the course of the following y?*r that they arrived at Santander The riar now went slightly out of his way in order j visit Lierganes The road thither leads cross a tolerably high mountain, on the other ide of which, at the distance of about one and quarter miles, lies the little town As aoon s they arrived on the summit of this moun iin, whence the eye commands the range of tie entire district below, the monk turned ?und to his attendant and said : " Hitherto have conducted you, my son ; it is now yoar urn to conduct me."
