"It were in the ship Russel Glover, sir, when
a old man of the name of Smith had her, and the
mate's name were Lewis. I wern't in her at the
time, but a chap of the name of Jack Adams, as I
was shipmates with aiterwards, into the bark 7a
rolinta. Captain Carr, be spun me tbe yarn, and
be were into her, and sho were bound from San
Francisco to Calcutta in the jeer 1851, Sbe had
sixteen men afore the mast, and tbey was to bare
$300 apiece 'by the run,' and no advance. This
here Jack Adams, wbat told me tbis, was a bard
chap, and tbere were two or three more like him,
and tbey pnt the devil into tbe rest. If the of
ficers had a turned to and pitched in and whaled
Jack und ono or two others, which they might
easy bare done, tbey would bare bad do trouble
with the rest, but I suppose Jack and tbe other
bad ones kind of felt of the mate on the first day
and found him a little soft, and so that encouraged
them to go on. Yon see, sir, I as a sailor nun
purhaps, don't ongbt for to say anytbiu' agin 'em
as a class, but tbe truth is tbe truth, no matter
who speaks it, and a sailor man has got for to be
governed, else bell go wrong. You see, sir, tbey
git used to it Irom their boyhood up, and they
can't git along without it, and officers of ships has
got to be saddled and bridled, or else booted and
spurred. Tbey has either got to ride, or else
play tbe jackass and be ridden. Almost all mu
tinies aboard of ships comes on by degrees and is
tbe fault of the officers bein' too easy and not
cbeckin' it at tbe first when it could be checked,
and it goes on till the men gits the upper hand,
and then there's the 'devil to pay and no pitch
hot.' Nobody ever heard of no mutiny with
' Bully' Waterman, or Beersley or McCerren, or
sich men as these. Of sailors bein' ponnded you
did bear and frequent, but never no mutiny.
Sailors generally begins on the first day out, that
is, tbe bad ooes tbere ain't generally more than
one or two in a ship's company and they spiles
the rest, and one of tbem maybe will como up
onto the forecastle when they are gittin' under
weigh, with his pipe in his mouth. Well, if the
mate jist fetches him a wipe and knocks the pipe
half-way down his throat, that ginerelly settles tho
matter, and this here man don't cut np rusty any
more ; but if tbis is passed over tbere will surely
bo trouble aboard of that ship afore the v'yage is
out. This here chap will likely feel of the old
man next. Probably be ll go aft on the weather
side to relieve tbe wheel. If the old man fetches
him one alongside of tbe bend and knocks him
into the lee scuppers, perlitely inquirin' if ho don't
knows as there's two sides to that ship, it's likely
that'll put an end to trouble, but if the old man
takes this, he'll bave for to tako more afore long.
" Well, sir, aboard of this here Russel Glover
there were this Jack Adams and two or three
more hard characters as hod been to the mines,
and then had knocked about along shore In San
Francisco for a year or more, and had got worse
by that experience than they bad ever been, and
they begin right away with the mate, a singin' at
him and in various ways a feelin' of him for to see
bow far they could go, and as be seemed for to
take it easy they tells him next day when he
goes for to tarn 'em to that tbey was shipped by
' the ran ' and that they wasn't a goin'for to do
anytbin' but work ship, steer ship, pump ship
and heave tbe lead if required ; bat as for puttin
on cbafin gear, or doiu' any general work, that
they wasn't a goin'for to do. Well, here were
tbe chance ; if the mate had a pitched in to them
it's likely tbey would have only bad to whale one
or two and tbey would hare giv'n in. But instead
of that ho goes nft and reports to the old man,
and tbe old man ho comes oat and calls all hands
aft, and he tells 'em if they don't go to work he
won't pay 'em their money when they gits across,
and then Bomo of tho sea lawyers they tells him
they'd tako tbe risk of that, that they'd only do
what they Bhipped to do by the ' ran,' and he'd
bave to pay'em. Well, sir, he lets 'cm go for'ard,
and all that day and the next they done nothin',
and of course the devil got fall possession of em'.
" Well, tbey talks over the matter by them
selves, and some of 'em they begins to git skeary
about their $300 when the Bhip got in, and so
they come to the conclusion as how they'd have
their money then and there, and so they goes aft
in a body and tells tbe old man 03 how they
wanted their wages, and if be didn't giv' it to 'em
not another stroke of work would they do of any
kind, neither to Bteer, Dor pump, nor shorten sail,
nor nothin,' and tbey insinuates that if he don't
give it to 'em peaceable they'll jist take it. Well
the old man by tbis time was jist frightened of
em. He bad the money aboard of the ship, and
some more for expenses in Calcutta, and be was
afeard they'd take the whole and maybe kill him
as well, so he tells 'em that he ain't got money
enough for to pay 'em the whole, but be will givo
'em half and a dne bill for the other half ; so they
finally agrees to that and he jist gives 'em $150
apiece and a due bill for S150, payable when the
ship gets to Calcutta. Alter this things went on
for a week, tbe men bavin' pretty much charge of
the ship, sassin' tbe officers nnd doin' jist what
they liked. Well, the ship bad laid in San Fran
cisco about six months, and then goin' down into
hot weather tho riggin' got all stretched oat, and
needed settin' up, nnd the mate he goes for'ard
and tries for to git the men for to turn to and set
np the riggin' and they tells him they'll see him
first, nnd bein' pretty lippy, at lost he gits
mad and be does wbat be'd ought to have done
long afore, he shows fight. But yon see, sir, he
were too late ; and he bad allowed tbe crew to git
the upper hand, and when once they do they can
generally keep it. Then tbis here mate ought for
to bave been prepared for the fight and had his
second mate ready to jump in, and mayhap the
cook aDd steward, and tbe old man handy with
his sbooting-irons. Instead of tbis, be went in
alone, and, of course, the crew piled onto him and
beat him badly. Well, then, tbe old man comes
a ruonin' for'ard on top of tbe house with his re
volver, and he fires the whole six shots over tbe
beads of tbe crew ; be said arterwards he done it
a purpose to frighten 'em and be were afeard he
might bit the mate if be fired into tbe crowd, and
so be fired over their beads, and when they seen
bis pistol were empty a conple of 'em jumped
np onto tbe house and captured him. And now
they had full charge of the ship, and a chap by
the name of Bill Johnson, one of tbe worst of tbe
lot, be took charge and allowed that be were cap
tain, and be made Jack Adams, him as spun me
the yarn, chief mate, and a little Welch chap,
named Jones second mate.
"They didn't hurt the old man, but they put
bim and the mate and second mate into tbe fore
castle and put a guard over 'em, and then all
bands went aft and took possession of that end of
"The ship were a rnnnin' across the Pacific
afore tbe north-east Uade wind, and there were
little sail trimmin' required. The carpenter tbey
left loose with tbe undcretandin' that if he didn't
do jist what tbey wanted bim to, they would heave
bim overboard. The cook and tbe steward was
frightened half out of their wits, and jist obeyed
orders. Very luckily there weren't much grog
aboard, for if there had been there is no knowin'
what these chaps might bave done, bat tbey
weren't only about a gallon and that were gone in
no time, and were hardly enough to make tbe
crowd boozy. While tbey bad the ram in 'em,
however, they tormented the old man above a bit.
He were a bald-headed old chap, and they mixed
some slush with the soot out of the cook's funnel,
and rubbed his bead with that, tellin' him it
would make his hair grow and there was many
other indignities they put upon him, some of 'em
like Pat's dream, ' too bud to be told." The
other officers also come in for their share or abuse,
and the mate were badly hart with the poundin'
tbey bad giv bim.
" We ain't made up our minds yet, says this
Johnson to the old man, arter he'd had charge
about a day. 'We ain't made upour minds wheth
er wo'll make you walk tho plunk or bang you at
tbe yard-arm; but one thing or the other you'll
bave to do.' And that was b'19 idea from tbe
first, to put tbe old man and mates out of the
way, and then go off to some of the islands where
there weren't nothin' bat natives, and spend the
rest of their lives there, destroy-in' the ship. If
there had been rum enough on board this might
have been done, but what tbere was soon died out
of 'em, and then some of 'em begin for to think
that matiny were bad enough without addin' mur
der to it. This here Johnson were already a be
ginnin' to draw a pretty taut rein over 'em, and
lad turned 'em all out of tbe cabin, assertin' that
that part of the ship were for bim and his mates,
und tbey thought as how he had found more
money and appropriated it to himself. He hadn't
however, for tbe old man had sewed it into the
middle of bis mattress, and tbey never thought to
"Things went on tbis way for about a week
the new skipper growin' more doinioeerin' every
day and not hesitnliu' to use bis fists i eith
when anybody didn't go exactly to suit bim, and
finally he and his mate fell out, and bad a regular
rough-and-tumble fight, in which Jack Adams
him as spun me this yarn, got the worst of it
That settled this Johnson's hash at once. Jack
said as how be'd been a thinking for some
lime of some way of getting out of the scrape
they was in, and so the night arter he had tbi
row he goes for'ard and tells tbe old man that
if bo will lake a solemn oath on the Holy Bible
not to prosecute tho crew for what tbey had
done they'll put him back agin in command and
will obey bis orders to tbe end of the voyage
lirtl L . . m . ...
iven, no were giau enougn ior lo uo this you
may be sure, and so Jack then spoke to the rest
of the men and they was glad enough for to
agree to this, end they goes uft and overpowers
this here Johnson as he was a sleepia' and they
puts him in irons and gives the old skipper full
charge agin. From this time out, Jock said
things went along well enough. Of coarse the
crew did nothing, except jist what was necessary
but they was civil, and there weren't no further
trouble. Arter the pilot come on board in the
Hoogly, tbe skipper let this Johnson out of irons
on bis promisin" to behave, and the crew left tbe
ship when she got to Calcutta, and went ashore
jist as if nothin' bad happened. The old man
didn't care to have it knowed that be bad been a
prisoner in his own forecestle and had bis head
anointed with slush and soot, and tho men didn't
care for to peach, for fear of a prosecution for
mutiny. When tbey presented their due bills to
tho consignee, payment was refused. Jack says
they went to a lawyer, and he, urter hearing
their story, advised them for to say nothing about
it and to thank Uod that they got off as well as
they did. They took his advice, and nobody
in Calcnttn ever knowed anything about it ; and
it were not till years afterwords that Jack Adams
told it to mo. Sea.
A DivrrV Adventures.
of the Submarine Experiences of Paul
A correspondent who has interviewed Captain
Boynton sends a report of tbe Captain's state
ments to The Gentleman's Magazine :
Soon afterward I worked down Into the Gulf
of Mexico. The first coral I raised was at Ca
toche. Knocking round about tbere, I heard of
tho loss of the Bchooner Foam. The first mate
and three men got saved, but tbe captain, his
daughter and three men got lost. I slang round
to seo if sbe could be raised. After we'd spent
tbe best part of a week, wo sailed over and drop'
pea nncnor. it was a lovely Sunday morning
when we struck her. Sbe lay in sixty feet of water,
on a bottom as white as the moon. Looking
down I could see her leaning over on one side
upon the coral reef. When I got down to her I
saw she'd torn a great gap in the reef when she
ran against it. The mainmast was gone and
bang by the fore. I clambered ; I saw whole
shoals of fish playiug in and out of the hatches.
First I went to look for the bodies, for I never
like to work while there's any of them about.
Finding tbe fo'castle empty, I went to the two
little state cabins. It was 'rather dark, and I had
to feel in the lower bnnks. There was nothing
in tbe first, and in tbe other the door was locked.
I pried it open and shot back tbe lock with my
adze. It flew open, and out something fell right
against me. I felt at once it was the woman's
body. I was not exactly frightened, but it shook
mo rather. I slung it from me, and went out into
tbe light a bit until I got bold of myself. Then
I turned back and brought her out poor thing,
Bhe'd been very pretty, and as I carried her in
my arms with her white face nestling against my
shoulder, sbe seemed as if she was only sleeping
I made ber fast to the line, as carefully as I could
to Bend her ap, and tbe fish played about her as
if they were sorry she was going. At last I gave
the signal and she went slowly up, her hair float
ing round her bead like a pillow of golden sea-
weed. That was tbe only body I found there,
and I managed after to raise considerable of the
Only one of my expeditions was among tbe
silver banks of tbe Antilles the loveliest place I
ever saw, where tbe white coral grows into curi
ous tree-like shape. As I stepped along the bot
tom it seemed as if it was a frosted forest. Here
and there trailed long fronds of green and crimson
sea-weed. Silver-bellied fish flash about among
tbe deep brown and purple sea ferns, which rose
as high as my head. As far as I could see all
around in the transparent waters were different
colored leaves, and on tbe floor piles of shells so
bright in color that it seemed as if I bad stum
bled on a place where they kept a stock of broken
rainbows. I could not work for a bit, and bad a
quarter determination to sit down for a while and
wait for tbe mermaid. I guess if those sea-girls
live anywhere, tbey select tbis spot After walk
ing tbe inside out of half an hour, I thought I
bad better get to work and blast for treasure. A
little bit on from where I sat were tbe remains of
a treasure ship. It was a Britisher, I think, and
corals bad formed all about ber, or rather about
wbat was left of her. Tbe coral on tbe bottom
and round her showed black spots. That meant
a deposit of either iron or silver. I made fairly
good hauls every time I went down, and sold one
piece that I had to Mr. Barnum of New York.
After I left tbere I had a carious adventure
with a shark. I wu down on a nasty rock bot
tom. A man never feels comfortable on them ;
he can't tell what big creature may be biding un
der the huge qurater-deck sea leaves which grow
there. Tbe first part of the time I was visited
by a porcupine fish, wbicb kept sticking its quills
up and bobbing in front of my helmet. Soon
after I saw a big shadow fall aoroes me. and look
ing np there was an infernal shark playing about
my tubing. It makes you feel chilly in the back
when they're about. He came to me slick as I
looked up. I made at him and be sheered off.
For near an hoar be worked at it, till I could
stand it no longer. If you can keep your bead
level it's all right, and you are pretty safe if tbey
are not on you sharp. Tbis ugly brute was
twenty feet long I should think, for when I lay
down all my length on the bottom be stretched a
considerable way ahead of me, and I could see
bim beyond my feet. Then I waited. They
must torn over lo bile, and my lying down both
ered bim. He swam over me three or four times,
and then skulked off to a big thicket of seaweed
to consider. I knew be'd come back when be'd
settled his mind. It seemed a long time waiting
for him. At lost he came viciously over me, but,
like tbe timo before, too far from my arms. Tho
next time I had my chance, and ripped bim with
my knife as neatly as I could. A shark always
remembers he's got business somewhere else when
he's cut, so off tbis fellow goes. It is a curious
thing, too, that all tbe sharks about will follow in
tbe blood trail he leaves. I got on my bands and
knees, and as be swam off I noticed four dark
shadows slip after him. I saw no more that
time. Tbey did not like my company.
After a short period ol experience in pearl div
ing, tbe next is tbe loss of nearly everything that
ho possessed, including bis diving apparatus, in a
conflagration. Captain Boyton, in a sort of despe
ration, took service in tbe Mexican war, and led
an exciting life till, growing tired of the semi-ba-barian
mode of warfare, be deserted, crossing
from MaUtmoros at midnight in an old tub of a
boat, in which he expected every minute to go to
the bottom. Arriving ut Brownsville, be " fixed
himself into hard work " at a dry goods store.
Then be wroto home, and hearing that his father
was dead, grew restless agiiin, and " waded awny
north," through Victoria. San Antonia, Iodia
naolia, and by a schooner from Galveston, whence
he proceeded via New Orleans, Savannah,
Charleston and Wilmington to New York.
There be stayed until be had filled bis pockets
again, and having set himself up with a diving
suit, he Bhipped for Havre.

A Lively Incident of Travel In the South How
Sam Caved and Abandoned Ills Home.
A gentleman residing in tbis city had occasion
a few days since to take a journey down the river
and several miles back of it, using a saddle-horse.
Darkness overtook him in a sparsely settled dis
trict, and as the roads were in a bad condition
and the evening looked threatening, he halted
before a forlorn looking hut and asked if be could
" I reckon ye monght," replied the long-haired,
sorrowful-eyed squatter, after hesitating a mo
ment. The Vicksburger found little to eat, nnd bis
horse found still less. Tbe squatter and his wife
were all alone, and they bad but a few words for
the stranger, and scarcely spoke to each other.
When tbe evening grew old, the traveler camped
down on tbe floor on a blanket, and being very
tired he fell asleep, while host nnd hostess were
smoking their clay pipes at tbe other end of the
room. He had slept about two hours, when the
squatter shook him by the shoulder and said :
"Stranger, I'm powerful Borry to disturb ye,
but I want to ax a favor."
" Yes yes what is it ?" inquired the Yicks
bnrger, as he rubbed bis eyes and sat up.
" Ye like to see fa'r ploy, don't ye, stranger?"
" Yes, of course."
" Wall, me'n tbe old woman can't agree ; some
how, she's cross and tetchy, and I guess I'm a
trifle ugly. Leastwise, we don't bog up worth
old boots. Wo've fit and fit ; I'm ole, nnd she's
chuck full o' grit, and it's about an even thing."
" Well, I'm sorry," put in the Vicksburger, as
tbe squatter hesitated.
" We've been a-talkin' since ye cum, stranger,
and we've made up to ask ye to hold the candle
and to let us go in for an old ronser of a fight a
reg'lar sockdologer which shall setttle our fuss.
If I lick, she'll go ; if she liek's, I'll travel."
" I'm sorry if there's any trouble, and hope you
' We've got to do it, stranger," replied the
woman. " 1 won t live with a man who kin lick
me, and be s just as high-born. Sam's as good
as the ran o' men, but he's lazy and sassy, and be
wants to wear his hat on bis ear P
She's right, stranger," said the squatter:
" and tbis eabin can't hold both of ns any longer.
It's to be a sqaar' fight no kicking or dabbing,
and we won't go back on yer decision."
Tbe Vicksburger protested, but the woman
placed a lighted candle in his hand, and posted
him in tbe door, and tbo man stepped oat on the

Tho Vicksburger mentally bet twenty to one

" I can whip the boots off'n ye, Sam I" she re
