wild fowl were to be found down the river, and we
anticipated that our leisurely sail might beenliveneJ
with tfood sport, As for personal dinger, that was
' out of the question. Occasional murders, it is true,

to the level of the deck, and inside there are two beds

T-lhr center. Besides thTs cabin," there is another in
the fore part of the vessel, entirely below deck, in

which are netful. ia landing, crossing creeks, and
other coast terries. ' f '
Late in the afternoon, we dropped gently down the
river, now and again trying our fortune on some un
happy viet'sn.' whose flight brought it within reach.

came intensely dark and cold, and we were fain to
shnr out the chill air, by closing both doors and win
,rdors all around the cabin. -
3Te were thus seated enjoying some of Jackson's
futtous Burgundy, when we were startled by a sud
den shock, as if some other boat had come in sollision
with ours, and the next moment we heard the report
ef a fire-pot, which exploded on the fore part of our
" ' deck. We had heard no alarm from cur crew, but
the truth at once flashed acmes oar minds that we

IThymper, who sat nearest the door leading to the
Trent-deck, immediately jumped out to reconnoitre;'

The pirate had a lighted H re-pot in his hand ready to
discharge, which revealed the dim outline of bis fig
are as he advanced; and Whymper, who was now
joined by Lee and ourselves, took aim and fired.'
Owing, to the dampness of the powder the piece missed

we stood. Tritb bis arm uplifted to launch his abomin
able missile, when the second barrel fortunately did
its duty, and the man fell heavily on the cabin roof.
Five or six men, each with a lighted fire-pot, were
now advancing over the cabin roof, rhile many more
were tumbling over the stern into oar boat. One,
s? two, three of oar pieces were fired in rapid succession

allied to furnish ourselves aits am inanition beyond

fore, to make a hasty expedition into the cabin for
our flasks and shot-pouches, and there found to our
. c .disusy that several fire-pots bad been thrown into it
jum1 exiloded, and were now showering sparks in all
diretrions, and emitting their odorous smoke in vol
ume. Fortunately-, the berths had previously been
prepared for immediate occupation, and the woolen
coverlets spread over them, protecting the wooden
frarrea from the burniag sparks, or we should proba

thrust. aimed at Jackson, made, us aware that the
door at that end had been burst open, and thus ex
posed us to the danger of a double attack. Jack sou
was accord'ntfly deputed to defend this point, and, as
, ja afterward found, received a very severe burn on
the back el his band in the discharge -rf this duty.

" The threat uttered by the lad rones as they retired
might or might not be a mere bravado; but.it seemed
not at all unlikely that there might be a sufficient
Bomber of reserved men in the two other boats to
; form a powerful reinforcement; and we were there-
Tore rather disincline to await a renewal of the fray.
The tide, however, h.td not yet turned; the wind was
not in our favor; and the idea of rowing a fast boat
ag-unst wind, stream and tide, was out of the ques
tion, n e bad the punts, no doubt, but they earned
.only two in each, and, including the servants, there
were six neovle ream red to be accommodated. A
council of war was held, and after brief deliberation.
we concluded, as there was no other available means
of escape, at all hazards to take to the punts. These
were accordingly rigeed out; and Jackson and Lee
took the one, while Whymper and ourselves occupied
the other, each boat carrying besides one of the eer-
vants. The little vessels were loaded to the water s
edge: the night was extremly dark; and the nearest
point at which we could hope to find a friend who
would receive us was at Whampoa. a distance or
twenty-five miles. Add to this the possibility, if not
the probability, of pursuit by the exasperated pirates,
r- which would have been certain death, and some idea
may be formed of the misery of our position.
v It was of consequence that our movements should
be rapid, and. we accordingly plied our strength to
make the diminutive crafts fly through the water,
while one in each boat strained bis eyes to catch the
first indications of approaching danger. We rowed
thus for upwards of six hours, and arrived at Wham
poa about three o'cl.ck in the morning, when we at
once made our way to the residence of Mr. Ward, an
old friend of Lee's, who, he assured us, would accord
us a hearty welcome. ' Our appearance was far from
prepossessing our faces begrimed with smoke and
powder, our eyebrows and whiskers scorched parti
ally off, our clothes burned in many places, and our
hands sooty and smeared with blood ; but the gentle
man was no sooner sufficiently awake to understand
our tale, than he all but embraced us. in his over
whelming expressions of sympathy. He rang up the
servants to prepare hot coffee, spread a groaning
table for our midnight tiffin, and after having again
heard the particulars of our adventure, and taxed his
ingenuity to find words strong enough to express his
surprise and admiration, he ushered us to our
couches, where we dreamed of Burgundy and fire-
pots, snipe-shooting, and deck fignting, sinking punts
and hospitable old gentlemen, till pretty far on in the
As soon as our late break last was concluded, our
excellent host kindly furnished us with his own boat,
and a crew to take us up to Canton, a distance of five
miles, which we easily accomplished in an hour.
The first object which" met our eyes, on approaching
the wharf, was the identical fast boat in which we
had gone down the river, and which the crew had
been able to get under way within a couple of hours
after we left it. 1
Some of us were pretty well known in Canton ; in
deed any one who resides in Canton for a month can
not but become known to almost every member or the
small English community who inhabit what are called
the Factories; and when it became public that our
fast boat bad come back without us, and that it was
stained with large quantities of blood, the greatest
uneasiness had prevailed. The crew of the boat were
.questioned, but they could only tell of the fight on
board, and that we had left them in the punts. We
might have been drowned or murdered after that.
As we drew near the wharf, we observed one or two
groups of anxious-looking faces and some excitement
of demeanor; but we were no sooner observed ap
proaching the landing, than three hearty cheers an
nounced our welcome, and a dozen bands were beid
out in congratulation. We then learned also, that by
an order from the consulate, to which office two of
our party belonged, a government steamer was at
that moment getting up steam, to proceed down the
river in search of us, as there appeared sufficient
ground to suspect that there had been foul play on
the part of the natives. The steamer was detained
till next day, when the true state of the case being
known, and necessary particulars being furnished, it
was despatched with a view, if possible, to apprehend
tome of the pirates, or obtain information as to their

selves tired of being feted. After that, we settled
down again into our old business routine; and we
can assure the gentle reader that our brain was never
more troubled with romantic dreams of gaily dressed
corsairs, a thrust from whose rapier, or a ball from
whose pistol, we bad f.mcied must le rather pleasant
than otherwise, aud whose life bore a charm wherever
