TJioVirginin Index is publishing n series of
interesting sKctches, uy Mr. 1 nomas Chase, of
unesiernetu, ot " Jbe J.ife, Character and
Time of Paul Jones." They throw much
light on the character of Paul Jones, and give,
we doubt not, a most faithful account of the
famous battle of bis ship, the Bon Homme
Uiobnrd, with the Serapis. After stating that
the ships were locked together, which was ef
fected by Jones, because he saw that to keep
nffa fair gun shot, with a new and strong frigate
like the Serapis, would never do for such a crazy
old hulk as the Hon llomrue Itichard, Mr.
Chase proceeds :
The woiking of the big guns had been sus
pended during the time of lashing the ships
together, but was now resumed. Of course
neither ship could use but one of her guns on
one side, and these were nearly muzzle to muz
zle so near that those who handled the ram
lods sometimes hit each othr. "Fair play,
you damned Yankee I" an Englishman would
exclaim. " Mind your eye, John Hull, or I'll,"
Tho firing was not rapid, pnrlioul.irlv on
Jones' part, for it could do the ships no hurt,
except to knock the guns about a little, and
knock oft" th gnnwlisles, and occasionally raise
n cloud of splinters from each other's decks.
Jones and his men kept a very sharp lookout
that Pearson and hit men did not cut the lash
ings and sfver the ships. .Wther of the slrps
were damaged " between wind an 1 water,"
four could they now be bj any use ot the big
puns, lioth had men in the rigging doing all
the mischief they could. In this kind of plar,
Jones had the best of it; for his men were more
terrible, and his spars and yards were louger;
still P earson houI.1 uot surreuder, insisting that
Jones ought to.
Capt Laudais, with the Alliance, came up to
help Jones, and fired a broadside; but of ne
cesnity it hurt .Tones as much as it did Pearson.
Jones immediately cried out, Capt laudais,
lotus nlone; lean handle him." Hoth ships
were often on fire, and as often was the fire i
extinguished. Had it not been for the men in
the rigging, this was one of the safest sea-fights,
m far as those on deck were concerned, that
almoit ever happened 1 mean after the ships

would go clear across each deck, and the men,
by keeping a good look-out, could avoid being
hurt, only by stepping a little aside.
Had the lion Homme Itichard been n new,
strong ship, as was the Serapis, both might have
lain there and burned powder and thrown shot
until they rotted, as to stoking either with the

tol l him she must soon go down, and suggested i
a surrender. " You never mind that ; you shall I
have a better ship to go home In," said Joaes' I
pi. atantlv. Jones and all his mer, and Pear-
on and his crew, very well knew that if the Bon
iloiuate Ilk-hard was about tu sink, she would '
capsize the Surapis, and both must go down to
gether. It was, therefore, IUmly to be a tret
