eight hours before; and tile'e4k was as

The captain and the owner stood Just
abaft the wheel, Harry White - had" the
and,most of thAmen'were hang
ifig about the deck, while little, Mary.
I3owditch, as blithe and happy as an
;uneaged lark, was sporting among the
coils of rigging that hung from the fife
rail. For several hours the tiger had
been unusually restive, and at the pres
ent moment was sending forth the most
jlistnal howlings, which - at length rose
to such a pitch that little Mary started
away from key usual playing-ground
.and crept up to the side of her father.'
"Come here, Kouli," said Mr. Bow
ditch, addressing one of his Malay ser
vants who stood near the starboard
gangway ; "what is the matterwiththe
, Kouli answered unhesitatingly.
"He wants the light and fresh air,
"Then let blur have it," said Mr.
Bowditch. ' And turning to the captain
he continued—" Will you have your
men hoist the cage on deck ?"
Captain Langtinn • gave consent to
this request; and in a few 'moments
Murton was rigged to the mainstay and
hooked into the
,stout lashings of the
cage, when the men,seized the rope and
'easily swayed the large grated box upon
The cage was composed of stout teak
',wood, strongly bolted and barred,'the
'front being entirely open, save the . Ir 4
rods that ran perpendicularly from the
top to the bottom ; it fronted towards
'the bulwarks, so that the men might
pitSgstiy, the opposite side of tiN deck
without disturbing the inmate.
For some time the tiger seemed much
pleased with the changeOthis situation,
whielfhe manifested by the peculiar
- manner in which sniffed up, the
fresh air and lasbed•about his lair; but
:in'ithe course of about fifteen minutes
his lashing ceased, and soon afterwards
al) witlttn the cage became as quiet as
the grave. Whenever a long continued
silence is suddenly broken by some
unexpected tearing, 'rushing, noise, the
,licart naturally beats • quicker a nil
'Stronger, andlthe nerves are strung by
'Unwonted excitement; but when a
cameo terror upthi its verysouna, sue
de-lay ceases, and leaves's; -solemn still
ness In the atmosphere, then it is that the
heart . experiences its m ost fearful
change ; for while one is exciting and
nerving in its vary nature, the other is
enervating and oppressive.
Thus ft was on board the' Cremona.
In the strange silence 'which followed
the ceasing of the monster's movements,
there was something at once startling
and oppressive, and more than one
brave heart sank a degree lower. A
fearful suspicion had taken possession
ofthe men as they had seen the cage
hoisted on deck ; the perpendicular
bars did not seem to be strong enough!
They had not seen them before, for
when the cage was hoisted on board it
was entirely closed up; but though
each held the suspicion yet no one
dared to give the thought utterance.
Harry White's heartsank for a moment ;
but he instinctively loosened theileavy
sheath knife by his• side, and then
seized the wheel with a firiner grasp.
For three minutes this silence lasted.
Not a word had been spoken, only the
men looked at each other with ominous
shakes of the head, and _then seemed :to
think of defence. At the end of three
minutes a sound was heard from the
Oge as though its occupant was straw,- .
ing a long, half-strilled breath, and in a
moment more it was followed by a
slight rubbing against the 'baek of the
wood work and a gentle gathering of
For the fintlime the Malay started
back and trembled; and then, in the
sharp, quick cry of the jungle bunter,
"The tiger! the tiger!"
But Kouli Thesan spoke too late; for
simultaneous with his own cry, there
sounded a low howl from the cage—a
'deep scratch of the firm-set 'claws, a
crashing of the iron bars, one against
the other—and the royal Bengal tiger
stood unbound upon•the deck! • -
With one leap he had passed between
the bars of-the cage and cleared a dis
tance of severalyards, Forsome,time—
it Seemed an age of chaos to thosb whip
watched him—the tiger lay crouched
where he first alighted ; and '‘vhile he
lashed his side with his tail, ,he rolled
his eyes round upon the crew. At
length they seemed to fasten upon a
single object, and as he lowered his
huge head almost to the deck, he
ered himself for a spring.
' The little Mary, as she tremblingly
nestled to her father's side, was the
ject upon which the tiger had set his
fatal eyes ; and with a slight stilled cry
ef'aliguish Mr. Bowditch gathered 'her
to his bosom and clasped his arms
tightly around her. • But the terrible'
animal seemed to take no notice of the
movement, other than to raise his eyes
to the elevated position of the child and
draw his legs for a firmer leap.
:Captain Langdon thought of the
guns, but through what certainly up
, peared to be gross carelessness, there
was not one of them loaded. A. thous
and thoughts may have flashed aerosS
the minds of the men, but for the mo

statues; and ere the captain could give
an order, or the• men find presence of

as,the tiger straineahis nerves for the

~The gleaming eyes ofthe beast caught
the approaching form; and with a low
premonitory growl, the muscles relaxed
their 'stained tension, atelhe tiger
raised himself upon his harnthes. -

'tin ihstant on the uplifted blade, and
loathe rixt it was buried in the side of
, the Monstet,; .but i ere it was drawn
'forth, those long fangs had settled upon
the'catives covering of the left arm, and
upon the intsant a sharp grating was
heard, as the bone cracked and splin
tered beneath the meeting jaws. Again
and again decendcd the knife, pnd as
each stroke opened some new passage
,for the monster's blood, that huge" paw
*found its hold in the quivering flesh of
Harry White. i
The men rushed forward, and would
lath have rescued their shipmate from
his self sacrilicel but ere they cape,
the two combatants had rolled over
together upon the gore-stained deek.
In one dark streanryningled the blood
of the tiger and the man.. Harry White
had Struck his last blow, and the knife
was buried to its haft •the heart of the
beast, from , whence he who struck it
-thither had not the pow r to draw it
"You may touch them, if you please,"
said Kouli Masan, as he regarded the
fearful scene ; "but all the power on
earth car pot loose the death-grip of the
tiger. His claws lire sent like iron into
the sides of his victim, and till his eyes
close his muscles will not relax."
But the spectators had not long to
wait; for scarcely had the Malay
ceased speaking iithen • the royal brute
gave one fierce struggle, and then the
giant paws laid powerless upon the
body of the devoted sailor—his- huge
jaws settled back, and his head fell like
leaden weight upon the deck. The
royal tiger was dead ! Little Mary' wus
safer -the Men were safe, and—oh, how
every heart beat with joy , as the truth
was known ? Harry W hite still breathed
,he breath of life.
\ There was one death the more from
the tiger's presence on board the ship;
but 't.vas the life of the beast only that
went out to fulfill the prophecy,. for
Harry White still lives. To be sure, he
has lost an ann; and the deep marks of
the tiger's claws tt9t; left to tell the tale
of that fearful struggle; but yet he
lives, - and from the bounty of Mr. sow
ditch he enjoys an independence from
the wants of his physical world.

Soon after Col. Millard left, I started
for the tavern. On my way I saw, men
peering about premises, but
they soon gave up the search and re-'
turned to their quarters. I found. the
negroesin the bar-room, handcuffed and
closely guarded. Boyd and Freanor
were alert and exceedingly jealous, es
pecially the latter, who was a - coarse
mean looking vulgar man, with more
of the ruffian in Mtn, than you will of
ten find even in-the worst parts of the
South; but he was nearly destitute of
courage, as I afterward bad reason to
belleNte. ;lie was armed With , pistols,
bowie-knife and hatchet; swaggered
immensely,. and in the coarsest
profanity. His behavior enraged the
by-standers and inspired,. them with a
strong desire to rescue the prisoners.—
I believe if one man had ehosen.to lead,
the rescue would have been attempted
en the spot. • '
Mr. Boyd was a- different man alto
gether, and seemed out bf ' element.
He appeared to be disgiisted with Frean
or's behavior, and on the'whole sick' of
.his errand, He informed me that if he
had not been the owner of one of the
" boys," (him at Bath,) he never would
have left home on that business.
I informed the officers that I was at
torney-for the priSOners, and requested
an, opportunity of conversing with them
in'private. Freanor protested boister
ously, but the otheers at last wit)seem
ing reluctance allowed the inte wiew.
Their reluctance Was a shadow. f the
coming dogma that _" themegro has no
rights which a white man is bound to
respect." Treanor insisted on being ;
present and hearing our consultation,'
and did not yield the point till -he was
made to believe that persistence would
involve danger to his person. AccOrd

' was void by the Statute before referred
to, and penal to the amount of live
hundred dollars. He might be owned
by.soniebody, but not by Freanor who
was the only claimant. Further infor

had put up with Mr. Potter. His house
was-tilled with curious people. 'Some
while after dusk, a horse and sleigh
stood in front of the tavern, headed to
wards the north. It' belonged to Dr. 0.
T. Bundy, and I understood that hewa,-.i
sitting in the sleigh ready for a drive.
At this time the deputy Sheriff was sit
ting in the parlor where were Boyd and
Freanor, probably a little uneasy, but
not apprehending immediate trouble;
otherwise they would have suffered the
negroes to be kept in the parlor also.--:
The constable was sitting in front of the
fire, itt the bar-room, gazing intently
into its "depths of flame," with his
back towards the street door. One el
the negroes was sitting at his right Inind
in ajdunilar position, and the other just
in front of the latter, and facing the .
door. 'The crowd reached from; the line
between them and the door, ito as ty
leave open a way of exit to the sleigh.
At thiStime the crowd was so untistitl-
Iy silent, that there was danger of tll e
constable looking roundlO discover t I
cause; 'but some spell chained his at
tention to the fire. This situation eiiii
tinned some time, and it .was evidiott
that no one had been appointed to give
the signal for flight: A person who up
to that time had kept" aloof, raw that
everyth i ng 'was ready, and catching the
eye of the negro who sat facing the
door, nodded- his head towards the
street. The negro was on the move in
stantly, and his comrade followed so
quickly that both passed through the
door ,before the constable had fairly left
his seat. Part of the crowd rushed out.
.Almon Allen Esq., of Mansfield, soon
shut the door and "commanded peace",
—but there was no peace. Those inside
rushed against the door and held it stint
a few moments.' The deputy Sheriff
came out by the entry between the par,
for and sbar-room. The constable made
his exit somehow ; . and as I was told,
both seized the same Negro and threw
their whole weight em the sleigh. Just
then the driver started the horse, but
something broke, and the horse went
off alone. The officers found their
Ilan& full with the one negro, and with
some difficulty dragged him back into
the parlor. Meantime, Charles S. Spen
cer seized the other, berated hint loudly
for attempting to run away, and drag
ged him along some way just behind
the officers— No clotibt, they thought
he was assisting them, and possibly he
meant so ; but it was- night and he
missed the way and brought tip iii a

very loud, and the behavior of many of
