"Thou cbmekit irk such
.a question
able shape " "
Without ;getting into Fall the par
timilars of • the Various Movements
attendant upon a -vessel's getting un
der way, I will briefly say , that on
certain day in April last, the , swift
sailing bark "Benjamin' -Franklin",
satiledfrom the, port of Havana, with
Assorted cargo. In the foreible
language of : Jack. Cavein, her com
mander,.she was a 'screamer,;" and,
if • all the .stories he, told is-to her
warvellmis spread were .correct_, she.
wasr a-wonderful craft.indpol. The:
gloricus - .o,ll)light - of r ithat.beauteoua,
clime danced and sparkled on' the rip
pling waters as she passed from out
the shadow of: •the aririr forts :and •
gentlY leaning over to. the breeze ;
bounded •"like a thing of;life" mitin
to•the' open sea. . .
On, until the land- fades play and '
indistinct behind, and waving trees,
flowery shrubs' and broad savannahs
die aWay in one long line of blue;.
the Water changes from 'deep,deep
blue into pale azure, and the evening,
wind brings on a cooler atmosphere,`
still sweet and balmy and not yet
forgetful of the groves of perfumed
fruits and flowers among Which it bad
sported so recently: The small flock,
of western cloudS. change from gold .
to fire, ' Et Aoger
,and , yet closer the
sun seems to - stoop to: kiss the west
ern' wave. So onward bravely-goes
the ship.
Jack Cavein filled the.capacious
bowl of his cherry-wood pipe with
choice tobacco, and having duly ig
nited-the "weed," sat down upon the
quarter-deck on hospitable thoughts
intend, turning over-in his mind,that
is, bow to while away the settled air
of melancholy • which was impressed
upon the countenance . ' of his only
passenger, Harry Dornfore, of New
York, - who ever since the port of He
zana had been left behind, bad 'been.
loaning over the vessel's quarter gaz
ing lugubriously on the land until
had quite disappeared' from VieW.
"Smoke, sir r said Jack. ,
"Not just now, I'm obliged to you,
Cali - Cain," replied his guest.
Jack relapsed into silence, and then
again commented. •
"Ifthis breeze hold," said he "we'll
have an all-fired tall run home of it..
This bark can travel you'd better be
lieve. She's a . downright sereather,
and no mistake."
.The idea_, of ',rapid progress
from thee - Cnban shores did. not seem
by any means to increase the young
gentleman's amiability, but he an
swered, civilly enough :
"Yes, Captain,unless we should.
happen to run foul of the Alabama.,
or "
"There, now, stranger," said lack
rising from his seat with . a look of
horror and •affright, 'don't say an
other word about that 'ere goldarn
ed ship: The pesky thinr , ain't any-
Where hereabouts,- by all accounts
and if were,:Lgusss the,"Benjie"
could show her a clean pair of heels,
if this breeze held on."
And he Walkn forward, smoking
like a liinekiln. In fact, the Alabama
was the perfect terror of Jack's life.
Night and day, on land and shore,
she still haunted hitni Not that our
WOrthy 'Captain Wae a coward.. He
Would dare all Vie horrors of storm
and tempest with a brave stout heart,
and Cheek unhienehed4' but he had a
holy horror Of all "darned piratical
Vessels;" as he called them, 'and ., the
remark Of liarry Dornford was'quite
sufficient to unsettle Jack's Mind for
the whole '
While the Captain and passengers
are in this unsociable mood, I rimy as:
Well say that Dornfordhad been re
sidingatTravana during the . last six
Months and had become dseply en
amored of:a: beautiful young Cuban
lady, whose heart' had not been proof
against th,e young American's hand
some pereon - and frank generous.dis
position. Her father '
however, who
Was one of the proud hidalgos of the
place; was , not so easily overcome by
good looks and gentlemanly: bea,ring,-
and had strenuously opposed-the suit
ofthe handsome foreigner going; so
far at last as to forbid him her house;
and thus all the interviews which had
Of late taken' place between the lov
ing pair, liadb - een stolen and brief
ones. Each had pledged the other,
hod ever,•undyirig fidelity; and they
had parted in tears only a-few hours
before the ''sailing of the '"bonny
bark" whose fortunes we'propose: to
follow. , A - Sew days before that on
W hieh .; the Benjamin 'Franklin had
sailed froth the Pert of Hayana, it
Chanced that another vessel' of the
same tonnage yclept the "Western
Wave," sailed trOrri'the port of Vera
Crili;, bound' fOr llaVana. She Was
cOnimanded by one Chas. CroSetrees,
WhO, Cavein, and,
deed, like 'meet of the merchant skip
per's whose'bfisitiosslay . in those'Wa
tersilabored : under profoundfcar
of piratical, vessels, more

disguised did the gallant Crosstreas
set sail froin - his part`; fs -before men
tioned. • •
To return to the" Benjamin Frank
lin." however, theJfirat night passed
away quietly enough, and with, , :the;
early daylight Dorpford was on, deck
and smoking, his first cigar by the
wheel, wafebing'the red and gold,and
violet-tinted Clouds in the east melt
away into'a , sia of glory, as the
resistless monarch ofthe day soared
higher. and higheriptp, the deep, deep,
blue,—watehing the - spia,y hound up
before the vessel's b t OWs and then fall'
like'a &ewer of liquid diamonds up
on the deck; yet ii he watched it all
came fond recolle4ions .of the dark-'
eyed beauty he had left behind, and,
with a sigh he tbaught , _that every
bound the ; e over the surg
ing sea. plaCed a reater space be- 1
tween_ him and th being whom he
loved better thin ttu.i , one on earth:
Old Jack .cania.iipilt this moment,
his face bea 'Ming with good humor,
follow2d, by the colfredsteward, who
bore ,on a tray twq ; large goblets till
ed with arose colored liquid, which
glimmered pleasantly between limp§
of lee: .Dornford 4,as easily persita the worthy Paptain to.appio
' te glass of the'Compound to hie ,
pria a
own' use, and havintlike Dick Swiv
eller assuaged his - tVirst in a "modest
quencher,' he accompanied his host
down to breakfact. , The forenoon ;
passed.. without a y, adventure of
special moment,—t e wind had veer
ed somewhat to' t
,-, westward, but
still held sufficien fair for their .
purpose, and ..our '‘ro passed the
morning in a half' - nolescent state
partly. , e Captain's ac
count of -various a sutures by sea
and by land, and pa ; occupied .in
building castles in *IE3 air, in which
the yonng lady -he ,tiad left behind
him formed 41. very inbortant piece of
furniture. • •
Dinner had just ended when the
man on the lookout dried—
"A sail on the port - bow."
"What does she loOk like ?"- shout
ed Jack as he rushed upon deck, his
mouth crammed with plum 'pad
ding. . .. •
"A large bark rigged vessel bear
ing right downupetOis." ' •
The ruddy countenance of the poor
skipper turned toa,qort.oldull lead
en hue, as with 'a trembling land_he
seized hiS glass and';:toelt along,
lent view 'of the aprtroaehing veSsel.
At length with a deep sigh he lOwerr ,
ed the glass, and tuping ,„to., Dorn
ford he gasped out
"Yes, it's that - eye , pesky pirate,

in ten. Minutes:afterward:4 the "Ben

the southwest as fast as every stitch

'That 'ere ship,' said Cavein, shitk
ing his fist at the supposed pirate—
'Sat 'ere ship is the plague of my
life, and of every skipper in the gulf;
why don't the President sent out a
proclaniation after her, and, abolish
her, or something of that.kinct ?' . and
again he raised his glass to his\ eye.'
'Yes,' said he, can count:the guns

By the advice of some friends,
Dornford commenced business in Ha

expect .by -this time has' been consum

long life ,and ha y piness, and hope and
pray, that the love of their young

love —hoping, in fact, that-neither of
