ABA5D0SED AT SEA.
BY LIBUTKNANT WAllNKFORD, B. N.
On tlio 22d of March, 1SA2, Just four dnys
Before tbe treaty of pence waa signed at Amkns
betweeu franco and Great BriLiln, a gricvaun
Bnkforlune befell Jumes tlendtTHon, sole owner
and captain of tbe l'eyyy, a smalt schooner hail
log from Biisiol, near which city, abont a mile
diitant on the road to limb, was J.iwcs llcudor
on's land dwelling a modest cottage bequeitlhod
to bis wife, which might perhaps have coin
Banded a rental of fifteen pounds per annum.
It amply sufficed for the accommodation of tlie
Henderson family, which consisted of himself
Wife, two daughters, and two sons liimly young
sters, the eldest o( whom, Kobort Henderson,
when the misfortune I Lave spoken of occurred,
had Just entered his nineteenth year. James
Henderson was aomowh.it m re than a ye.ir his
Wo' her 's Junior stoutly limbed, gallant JaUs,
Kith of tbeni.
Tbe daughters, Margaret and Miry, were very
much )e?i healthily framed than their brothers.
They were buth delicate ; Margaret hud an arfec
tlon of the epiue, not conuuitive to gracefulnuxs
ot dgure, and Mary early showed Hyinptotns of
pulB.oiiary (Jei Iido. Tbe doctor wus uunbuimently
selucm tut cf tbe houne or coltugu ; he wus never
theless au ulwuys welcome vi.-itur, furanmach
tuat be held tiimly to the opinion that tbe gins
Baser lontiiiiious ki ful treatment, of course
onld certainly grow out ot it," Margaret being
onlv fifteen, Mary two years younger. Tbe sous
idolized their timers ail the more ardently, no
doui.t, that, so unlike llioiii-elvt s I hey were weak
and ailiuK. We n.uy be su.r tiny were lovable girls
to Uiin r, mo her, and brotlierc, luTable girls.
And wun't the sinters proud ol lucir broihsrs i
' Kutbei I and tiny hud Ju-t greuiiils for being sj,
long before they "grew out of it," uud got uiar
IKd. Brave, honest, indefatigable skliipcr IlenJerson
had but one fault that 1 can discover that by i
which the aucels full, amnition; and, like the
fallen dm s, be was over-cuuiident, ra-li, prone to '
BbUK'ulci.l.it( cfannns. He was anxious to puh I
his ions early forward la the world ; to ln-ure a
e mitiru'jlc Lome, where care should never cross
the ihret mid, tor his daugbturx, tor bis wife. I
And vt. tb uh all the capital he had was reure- '
acnied by tbe I'tgyy, he, upon the strength of .
wwsp vfar reports tliat peace with France was 119 I
fooo as signed, refused to renew his assurance 1
of tbe schooi.er agaiuiit war risks, and uninsured
took ou board a valuable cargo for Dublin, and
Bailed for that port on tbe '21st of March, 1)2.
Tbe Veggy, which was handled by himself, his
twu(scn,and two hired seamen by uo moans too
Biany hands encountered rough weather lor the
time of year.
Tbatwonld have been of small consequence
tad not her loretopmast through a defect iu tue
spar, which siioula have been rcctitied before the
Tenel left BrUtol snapped short off an acci
dent, if aceideut It could be called, which se
riously reduced her speed. And the schooner
' had soon need of all her wings. L'Ecume, a re
markably swift and andaciou privateer, carrying
four guns, hove In sight when tbe I'eggy was
struggling across the Irish Channel, immediately
gave chute, came up with the partially crippled
achooner hand over hand, and when near eunuch
fired shotted guns by way of menacing admoni
tion to her captain to lie to, and take the inevit
able capture of his vessel pleasantly. The bal s
fell purposely wide at first, but tiudiug that the
acbooner held ou with every thread ol canvas she
could si t, tbe guns were pointed seriously, ami
one unlucky bull smashed both of skipper lieu
I Tbe imiomitable pluck of the man was not
tamed by even that terrible iuilli ti ni. ' It is use
less, boys," said he, adilressing bis hulf-tien.iud
sons, "the Frenchers must have ibe schooner ;
there's no help lor it; but they shan't have me.
1'itch me overboard rather tlmu see me carried
otl to die in a French prison. Bear a hand with
the tourniquets, and then hoist me over tue s ilu
into a boat. The frog caters will not care to
follow us vt hen they have nabbed tbe ves-el au J
cargo: and you must tuke care of your-elve, if
only lor your mother's, sisters', my sake." Tuis
only available course, under the circumstances,
, wus promptly taken, and the schooner's boat,
Siitlii lently provi.-ioneil, was in a very tew miuuii l
scudding be lore tbe wind towards thu lrl-h coast.
L'ICcume did not attempt pursuit, her command' T
being no doubt anxious to secure his prize au i
set la S to Oianville whilst he had a chance of
cl lug so. The French skipper's object was suc
cessfully accomplished, lie got back to France
wilh bis prize wnhuut so much as having sighted
British cruiser. Tbe truth seems to be tbat
'general opioion," taking it for granted that tbe
war was over, bad not only misled James iien
ideMou to his ruin, but paralyzed tho energies
and watchfulness of the royal navy.
Henderson's legs were amputated in Dublin ;
the operation was skilfully performed, uud in less
time than could reasonably have buen expected
lie was stumbling about in Lis garden near Bris
tol. Much sympathy was expressed for him;
but that is cold, barren comfort much more to
the purpose was tbe generous oiler of an old
friend, Captain Uussell, to ship his sons who
liad, of course, been released when peace was
definitively signed ou board the line brig Charlrt,
about lo sail fur Bombay, as second and third
mates. Tho oiler was gratefully accepted, and
the first week in Movo.rnber the Charlet sailed for
Iier destination. "May the Lord guide you

One ol the nrst p.ee uitio .s he took, in autici
rminn of a fatal issue, w is to place the iron
boxi s under the care ol the II endersoni. Hii
glca inv mrelsMinig wai unhappily realized. On
the uvcnii g of the tilth day utter the attack, tho
gopd and gallant seaman was eoniigncd to tbe
neep, siul liauiel Fletcher reigned in his stout.
Hie uei forth the Henderson were exposed to all
the petty atitioyances that a iueuti-spii iio,t cur,
dressed in a little brief authority, could lnllict.
Tbey born it all patiently, continuing r.calousiy
to lci form their duly. Onu of Fletcher's first de
mands was, that the iron boxi s should be replaced
in his (the captain's) charge a requisition
tinr.1) refused ; a refusal justified b C ip:a n Hus
fell's written uireciions, given lo Kobert lluudcr
son the day before he died.
There was no fen r tbat Fletcher would bavo
recourse to actual violence; thu brothers were
fuvontes of thu best men unionist the crow, and
any unlawful stretch ot power on the acting nup
taiH's part would havo been boldly, and ihero
could be liitlu doubt successfully, resisted.
1 bings continued mucn in the same state till the
rAuftswiis ncuring the Line, when tbey spoke
the 'aUu.t frigate, outward bound, and learned
that war was again raging between France and
Krklauil. The news caused the greatest 'con
st rnutlon on board, from which the second and
third mates weru not exempt. Fletcher hid
raised one of tho forecastle seamen, ;wr taltum, to
the post of Jirit mate.
The Charltt was a slow sailer, and moreover,
in const -queues ot her Insulll, lent, audns a whole,
ihi ftlciei.t erow, baiily handled; uud no one
(oulu hope to escape cuplur. in the North Atlantic,
unless a bomewaril-hbiiiid convoy, which it was
absurd to count upon, was fallen in with. From
that day there were frequent conferences held
with each other hy fie captain, fir-t muto, aud
F.iiclihh crew, from all of which the liendersond,
li Fletcher's desire, weiu rigorously excluded
Ibe brothers, nevertheless, overheard enough
lo enable tin m to guess pretty accurately at tue
I in le game on loot. Fletcher's infamous pro
posal, gradually acquiesced in by every man on
bourd, was to run the ship on shore at some plaeo
on the coast ot the United IStaies, where a landing
in uic noats coiiin tie easily etlected, suuu ami
curry oil the two boxes of precious stones, and
whatever elsu was worth taking, ami divide the
plunder equitably nmongst tho plunderers.
It sinned to be also understood that the Ilon
tlcrsons were not to be permiitcd to go with the
crew, nor were the General's children or thoir
utti ndaut to be cared tor. in fact, the enormous
sum to be realized by the jewels amounting,
Fletcher assured the men, to nearly ten thousand
pounds each, there being but twelve to share
extinguished whatever of moral iirincitile ther
had ever possessed, degrading their humuu
nature to the level of that of bru'es.
The situutiou was a trying one for tho two
yonng men, but they encouruged each other to
face thu peril valiantly, w henever It should pre
sent itself, and trust the issue to Uud.
That peril came suddenly, bsforo the plotter!
tl.einielvcs were prepared fur it. On thu Aiu of
Jsuuary, Is 04, and at dawu of that day, a fri-,'alo
wus seen sueiing eouihwaids, under uay sail,

was unmistakably French, and saw tho CWi
almost as soon as she herself was seen. Up ran
the tricolor; the white smoke uud ttu-h of a gnu
broke out of her side, aud a ball, outstripping
tbe report, eamo skipping towards thu Urinsli
merchant hrfg. It fell short by at least half the
dislucce between the vessels, and the frigate was
fortunately (lead to leeward. 1 here was a smtit
da breeze blowing, aud the escape of thu slug
gish Chtirtrt was simply impossible, lo a mo
ment all whs hurry -sliurry on board the brig ; the
main preparations bud been made; tho launch
was deitij lowered ; water, ruin, biscuit, and beef
were safely stowed, aud then Fletcher, wilh six or
seven ol his fellows, urmed to t bo teeth, demanded
the deliery,tho tnimediute delivery, inio their
bauds, of the iron boxes. Tue Hendersons were
iu no concilium to resist that demand ; the boxes
were rtlmtantly surrendered; the keys were not
asked for, and if they bad bees, a satisfactory
nswer would have been ready. The cruw,
Malaya included, sixteen scoundrels in all,
wished the Hendersons joy of the capiiul prospect
tiny had of enjoying a Fiench prison, must likely
lur twi nty years or more, and with a louj liuirah
i lulled westward, in the certainty of striking tbe
iiszilian coast iu, at tbe most, forty-eight hours,
should the weather continue moderate. As in
the tu e of the l'egyy, it wus quite certain the
French captain, haviug secured tbe ship, would
not trouble hiimeif to pursue u dozen or so of
miserubles escaping In a boat. Poor Mary Joyce,
the Kio-'lish si rvaiit, was quite bewildered by the
iDrouiprchensibilit.es passing before her eyes, and
even the merry-hearted ehildien were hushed
into serioiiBiiessJiiiHl silence.
Tbe tirst hour which elapsed after the departure
of Fletcher and his fellows must have been uu
int xpresBibly bitter one to Hubert and James
Henderson, whose memory b ill retained, in
piunitive vicor of impression, their mother's
pariing words: "Do not lorgetthat we hive noiv

were on their way to a French prison. Aud their
sisurs, abuso much needed ctu-rishtiut! Tha
cup held by fate lo their lips must iudeud have
uu n u outer oi e.
They wi re not then doomed to drink it. The
lnUDib bad ubupiH'arcd.and the Frenchman, who
nuu not tin it sgum, was within halt a tulle ot the
l iatlea, which hud not Changed its course. "All
at emu iheiewas a great bustle on board the
French frigate; she lulled sharply, hurriedly let
fall all the cunvas she could spr ad, and sped olf,
rlosi-huuled, in u direction which showed that
she was no longer desirous of closing with tho
t'harlrt. The reason was not long to suck. A
heavy llritish frigate, showing six more teeth in
her side than the Frcncumnn, was just in sighr,
ai.d boiintliug iilong at a tremendous speed. It
was the 1ii frgute tho Frcuchman l.aClto
)uire, which, alter a long and varied chase, man
ae d to escuie.
The Heiickisons were, I need scarcely sav,
hugely delighted by so signal u deliverance. IS
the wind continued to blow from the same quar
ter, aud did not increase in force, they doubted
nothing the suils bciug set of safely liavigatiug
the Charlei to a South American port, where they
could awuit the instiuctious of the owuers of the
brig and cargo. One capital trick they had plaved
11 ti ber & Co., which, now that thoy had leisure
to laugh, as one msy say, added greatly to their
hilarity, and was heartily joined by Mary Joyce,
"a plcusunt-spirited, comely maiden, though
somewhat brow nod by the sun of India ; and even
tbe children capered, crowed, aud laughed ia
unison with our mirth."
The capital trick was this ; The Hendersons,
knowing that the robber crew had determined to
scire, at the last moment, the iron boxes, quietiy
unlocked them, took ont the precious stones, rs
lccked the caskets, and hid away both jewels and
keys in a place where there was very little chnn'
the most diligent searcher would find them. How
Flelcher and his co-thieves would curse and
blaspheme, when, with eyes on fire with triumph
ant greed, they wrenched open the boxes, and
found them empty; that, instead 01 Clutching the
hundred thousand pounds at least, for which
tiny Lad pawued their souls, their precious booty
consisted only of a lew pouuds weight ol old
iron ! Ho! ho! bo!
The wind remained In the same quarter, and
moderate, lor about twenty-fours only ; it then
tbilted rapidly from one point of the compass to
another; blew in violent gusts, aud once throwing
the CliarUt so suddenly aud fiercely aback, before
the brother could manage to reduce the spread
of canvas, and properly brace the yards, that it
was a miracle the brig did not go down stern
foremost. The shifting and violence of the wind
continued to UUlo tUeir eliorU during six dsys
and nights; they made but little r al way during
nil that time, and were almost worn o-i- wi'ii

however, soon as linn and eoulldent a hold of

of people who spoke I-.nglish wero constantly

Jnnus quite tigreed in that, and both youths
went on deck. Jenkins was no dilatory Isggurd.
He came on board with a lot of Yankee notions
for an excuse, and whilst uifecting to be chuflor
ing ill ioi it tho prices ol the articles, nil particulars

possibly tL; heightened color of her comely face,
the sparkling hrc ef her bright hazel eyes.be-
toktt.ed SKxkty for the saleiy of others besides
tue children, it was James iieuucrson she
replied to, though Kobert had sK)ken lo her.
A feverish duy wus drawing to a close at last.
The bluff coust casta wider, stnl widening ehado'-v
on tbe sea; when from nut that shadow a large
boat, propelled by eight lusty rowers, and con
taining, resides me roweis, some inirty armed
teamen, stole swittly out, steered by an otticer
wearing thu Unfed (Stales naval uniform, and
with the Stars and Stripes Homing from a stalf at
the bow. The destination of the foil was quito
evidently the f 'haiUn. Lieutenant klaupas bad
no doubt about that, but why he should be hon
cred with an otliciul visit at that hour of the duy,
he could not comprehend.
'1 lie tllh ial boat was alongside. Bill Jenkins,
the impudent rosea!, In the full rig of an Ameri
can naval comuiuniler, stepped upon the deck,
his nun followed, a scrimmuge ensued, in which
the bewildered Frc nchmen, hud each of them
been a Koland or a Count ltobert of Paris, could
not have hud half a chance; and iu preci-ely tea
minutes ufter Commander Jenkins ascended the
side, tbe recaptured Vharln was gliding grace
fully through the water, with the Stars and Stripes
living at the fore, to tbe utter paruly.atiun of the
fort gunners, who could not, for tbe life of thorn,
comjirebi nd what It all meant. They were wiser
an hour afterwards ; but by that timo the t'harlrt
was lar beyond the range of hostile shot. The
affair, us many of us remember, made a grout
noi-e at the time.
Lieutenant Maupos was a brave, if a slow
officer. The recapture of the brig stung him to
the quick ; aud ai out an hour afterwards ho
) uiscd rapidly into tbe nr-er cabin, where, as it
happened, only Jumes Henderson and Bill Jen
kins were sealed. Uttering only the exclamation
"Si tlnat!" he placed the muzzle of a louded pistol
at the young mans forehead, und would, in the
twinkling ot an eye, have made an end of Hen
derson junior, had not a sharp eye been watching
his movements for the lust half hour bud not a
light step followed him into the cabin, and u swift
bund stru' k dow n tbe niuzlc of the pistol before
it could lataliy explode. The bullet merely made
a bole in the cabin floor. The sharp eye, ibe
light ste p, Ibe swift hund, wire Mary Joyce's eye,
tup, hand. No wonder she became Mrs. James
Henderson wi'hin a month niter the Charles
biouht up iu King's Ko.id, Bristol.
The two Heudertons were munificently re
warded by owners und underwriters; und all went
iiiiirvbsu n.uri'ate bell at the cottage a mile
out of Bristol, on the toad to Hath.
HYMN OF Tilt: ALAMO.
"lilse, man the wall, our clarion's blast
Now sounds its liuul reveille ;
This dawnintf morn must be the last
Our fated baud shall ever sec !
To lile, but not to hope, farewell !
Yon trumpet's clung and cannon's peal,
And storming shout and clash of steel .
Is ours, but not our country's kuell !
Welcome the Spartan's death
'Tis no despairing strife ;
Wo fall we die but our expiring breath,
Is freedom's breath of life.
"Here, on this new Thermopylir,
Our monument shall tower ou hiD'U ;
And Alamo hereafter be
In bloodier fields the battle-cry !"
Thus Travis fiom the rampart cried ;
And when his warriors saw the f a,
Like whelming billows move below,
At once each duuntkss heart replied,
"Welcome the Bpartun's death !
'l is uo despairing strife I
We fail we die but our expiring breath
Is freedom's breath of life I"
They come; like aultimn leaves they fall ; '
Yet, hordes on hoidcs they onward rush;
With gory tramp thoy mount the walls.
Till numbers the defenders crush,
Till falls their rhvr where none remain-!
Well may the ruilians quake lo tell
now Travis and his hundred fell '
Amid a tbousi.ua loeuun sluiu ! ;
- Tbey died the Spartan's doutli,: '
bat not in boneless strife ; - 1
Liku brothers died, and their expirlug brosth
II n i freedom's breuth of life.
