' A well-dressed gentleman, win/' " ^P0^* a magnificent beard, and has irre pr'whahle manners,'" added Charles. ,l I know ail that. But tell me something more. I ain satisfied you can, for I hare seen you talk to bun. and noticed a look of inquiry and intelli fence in his deep. black eyes that puzzled me. n fact, tho man ha* an air of mystery beneath bis easy and rather winning address, which has *0 provoked my intense enriosity." " He is a sailor. I knew him some yeirs ago in New Orleans, since when he has been va riously engaged in his profession. For two J ears lie has been absent on a venture in the acific. and has. I believe, made money.*' 1 -h<?uld think an, by tho way he spends it," said Charley, " why, he wears a single diamond worth fire thousand. Yet, they say he was poor enough when he left New York/' ?4Ours is the day of sudden fortunes, you know." '? Come none of your mysteries with me. Mas ter Jack. I want the story, and something tell# me you know all about it. I havo seen that man's eye upon yo? more than once, and you are cither possessed of some secret, the f tfnty of which tic doubts, or he suspects you know more than he would have you. ' " And is that your conclusion, most saga cious Teller, of othor men's thoughts* Must every well dressed gentleman, with a dark beard, who had followed the sea. be a Corsair' ,\nd must every attorney to whom he may have .-untitled a suit, bo the rei>usitory of his dread secret?' " Badinage won't answer your turn. Jack, nor is Sue dress and a gentlemanly appearance on Broadway a certificate ol moral character 1 Why, if the pedestrians of that thoroughfare were compelled to carry a window in their b->aoins. or to yublish their biographies, we should have a record ot romance and rascality, farcical, melo-dramatic. and tragical, which would begger all the creations ol novolists from Eugene Sue and Bulwer to Ned Buntline." Well. Charley, if it is a story you want, eoone along to Florence's, and let us have 3ome oyster* and hot stuff to make it palatable." We were soon stowed away in comfortable quarters, and Charley, proposing to play the i host, ordered a plentiful supply of those good things which Sherman knows so woll how to provide. "Now, go on. Jack," said my friend, when the waiter had left us. '? Well, once upon a time " 44<Jo to thunder''* " I accept the amendment. Seriously, then about si* months ago, a clipper brig wap moving along under easy sail in the neighborhood of the Bahamas fcho was armed, and a number ol her crew, who were lounging idly on deck, would have bespoken her a man-of-war, but for the want of apparent order and discipline 1 among thein They wero nevertheless a fierce hardy set. Over the gazing apparent ly at the ships's wake, was the liHie, athlet ic, and elegant form of her captain. In his dark eyes, waose smothered fire still glowed visibly, was a world of speculation; no lines of thought had wrinkled his hard, marble brow; but about the firm m<<uth played occasionally these pas?ions which find there an index, and ' which even the steruest iron will cannot always curb?an habitual sneer, however?hypocrisy'* favorite veil?instmtly hid the record. " A true portrait'" exclaimed Charley " Well, we will leave our captain to his con templations, and glance at his less polished crew, where, perchance we shall glean more imformation There was an animated group near the mainmast, whose conversation may enlighten us. ' It 's slap up in the skipper to give us a jolly good blow out, before we part, boys. I mind parting with our tight little eraft more nor I thought, though," "'Why can't we lay her up, until oar cruise ashore is over, and then hoist again"' said one of the younger sailors. "Cause you know* nuthin about it, Johnny Raw." aaid a rough old salt. '' No barkey ever krospered the second cruise. We jist scuttle ner. and down she goes to Davy's locker, and not a stick to tell a tale agin us " You may say that. Toiu .Scupper. We've mule clean worli ??T it; there ain't a stick or a bale that fl >ats on the sea to tell where five gallant ships with their crews have gone to." ,-'>ur captain'a Davy's own boy, with his ct?ld face, and red hot eyes, and devilish smile," added another. ?' I hadn't a doubt he'd Send his brother over the side with a couple of thirty twos to his feet, and keel-baul his father." "Avast' led ay there!" exclaimed ho who ?i< der-i^nated m Tom Scupper. " llo's made uur wha>-k (or 11s and. by ?d, there shan't b? any mutiny while wo re under orders." ? llaul in your \lrtrk. Tom."' said a bolt). re? k- , less young sailor. " We've been bloody pirates, I ku<>w but I should feel easier if some things hsdn t been done I mind how that old man arid his two daughter begged on hoard on th** II id iaiuan. They swore ou a bible never to tell ??n us, and offered more money than the ship was worth to put them ashore. " Twould?i't do, Will, to make any Veptioiu*. They'll all l,eg and swear, and then peach, and bang us," sai l Tom Scupper '? Ves' but Tom, we might at least have drown- i ed them together, as they asked, when they ?aw we hadn't any mercy in us. 'Twas too ; bad to use them girls a* we did, and then pitch em over to bunt for the old man." Wknr ' Mr Parson, 'snoae we pitch you over to rrea<*h to the sharks, ek ! " Tina wit said with an emphasis of dark and tnreatemng looks that made even the reckless sailor blant'h. ' Iu a word, Charley, you will understand that I have carried you In imagination on l->ard a pirate craft, where, after a successful cruise, they were preparing to sink their ship. | an I scatter over the world to riot on their blood- ' gotten gains. I ou will also understand that their career had been one of retention and all deatxuymg cruelly. While tne conversation was going on among his men, the captain still maintained his listless ? attitude, yet not a word had escaped hi* acute , hearing; and when the concluding threat was j mile, a cold, sardonic smile played for an | instant around his mouth It had scarcely ] passed away, when an individual, who emerged tnjfla the force part of the brig, approached. 1 His step was soft and noiseless a.- a cat s, and an ' observer would have said, when he paused ' within two feet of the captain, that bis presence I was unknown, yet, e'er lie could utter a sylla- J hie. his superior, without changing position, ?aid in a low. quiet distinct tone: '* W'ell. i* it done. Antonio ?" " Si, fiigMur*,'' replied the other. " And are you sure there is no mistake?" '? None. Capttano mio. I swear it by the noly Virgin." said the Italian. ' And l.y the holy devil, you shall havsyour reward Hutone word more; you can steer, Antonio, though in the breeze, the brig steers herself. Wh?m dinner is piped, you will relieve I th- man at helm Keep her on her course, and 1 don t leave your station under any circum stance*. unless you hear my bell ring." '? ???. *iqnor* i'upttumt.

Here, ' said he, " is a runlet of the old rum we took from the red nosed Bishop who was so foolish as to trust himself and his treas ures afloat, and here," drawing cover troin a basket " are the golden goblets he said were dedicated to the Virgin?they have been allot ted to my share; but take one of them, each of you. and keep it in remembrance of your captain." J Hi? generosity was hailed with applause, and two men arose at his signal, one distributing the goblets and the other filling them with rich strong, fragrant old Jamaica rum, the captain helping himself from a flask at his side Every man rose to the captain s toast: Ilcre b a Rover's life ! Gold to him who has the courage to win it and the soul to spend Here's to th* sea that tell no tale*: The breeze that fills the rover's sails." Every bumper was quaffed to the bottom and wild and long was the shout with which this congenial sentiment was hailed. Excusing him?elf by alleging the necessity of watching the brig'i course, the captain now went on deck, an I ?ommending them to that fre* indulgence which he well knew required no p -essing. *? Well, Antonio, they have drank vour tamper." " I saw it,' said the Italian, his eyes (Flitter ing like a snake's. "No doubt, manure Capita/to. Listen how they shout. In five minutos not a tongue will wag But I shall have one-half. you promised." " One-th >/. Antonio; but don't trouble you r solf man, it will be enough. There is iuoro than you think." " Antonio is satisfied, Capita no mio," said thf man. Tho two proceeded to converse some time asi to the details of their anticipated cseiiiie while the revellers in the cabin grew more !iuief_ There was a rattling of plate, a crack ing.of furniture, a few deep moans, and heavy tails as of drunken men. and and all fxlov, was still ns death ' The Italian grew pale, and crossed himself nervously. A wild light of demoniac triumph gleamed for an instant in the captain s eyes j arid a hitter smile passed over his countenance. ?V htle Antonio was still trembling be felt his companion's hand placed lightly aud calmly on his shoulder 44 See jj^>u yonder cloud, Antonio ?" he a-k ed, punting to tho horizon " Wo are nearer land than you thought That is the shore, and we will rcach it to-night. Go below and gather the gold goblets; butlet everything else alone? we have enough here." And he touched an iron-hound chest, placed between the binnacles. The Italian complied, with evident reluc tance. and in a few minutes returned with the articles, but pale and livid ao a ghost, his knees smiting each other. - Courage, man ! we shall soon be clear of her,, said the captain, who had turned the brig s bead to the shore which he had pointed out. In less than an hour the shore became clearly defined and preparations were made for leaving the vessel. The chest, by means of a whip or pulley, was got into the stern boat, which was one of Francis's life boats, and the tackles were made all clear. Taking an axe. the cap tain went down into the fore nold, where large holes bad been already made in the bottom A few blow* knocked out the temporary stop pers, and the water rushed in furiously. The boat was now quickly lowered, and the two survivors, pulling off some distance, watched the late of their abandoned bark and her poi soned crew. In half an hour she had settled until the water ran in at her ports ; in a few minutes she keeled over, and, with a plunge and a groan, sank forever beneath the blue | waters, never to rise a witnoss until the sea gives up its dead ! ? ? ? * * The next morning a coasting vessel picked up a life boat with one seeming half drowned passenger. He was TH* Captain ! Where was Antonio? " And do you mean this as the history of Captain Knight?' asked Charley ' suht}. as the Spaoiad says.
