The British government went lor trie
Spaniards in tv vigorous manner, demand
ing Indemnity for tho past ojid security
for tho future. The Spaniards yielded and
?igreed to equip a force to cruise on the
south coast and search tho keys for nia
rnuders. A fast sailing brig of war, B.1
Toridor, carrying ten guns, was put in
commission under Captain Hornani. At
this time the United States hud a lleot of
small vessels doing police duty in the gulf,
one of which, the Enterprise, commanded
bv Lieutenant White, hud captured several
pirate craft and cut up tholr crews. It
was on the same station as tho Toridor. .
and Lieutenant White arranged with Cap?
tain Hcrnani to co-opcrnto with him and
if in want of assistance at night to show a
light at the mainmast head us a signul.
Information had como to tho Spanish
captain that a consort of the Esmeralda, a
fast sailing schooner called the Bouita,
commanded by a negro named Pinto,
would trv and get into tho Largo key at
night She had been on a cruise away
south and was reported full of plunder.
The negro captain was a bloodthirsty ruf
llan, about 50, and was badly wanted by
the Spanish authorities, as ho had mur?
dered :i brother of Captain Genend Galviz
in one of his raids ashore. So the Toridor
lav out about three miles away from the
pass between the isle of Pines und Cayo
Largo. On the night of Aug. 10, 1823,
the man at the wheel was tho only one on
tho alert. Suddenly from tho northwest

a gun, and a shot whistled through the
rigging, and then a cry from the helms?

und tho sides were alive with men. coining
aboard veiling, "Kill, kill!" There is no
want, of courage nmom? Spaniards, and
the crow fought desperately. The captain I
was on deck and at once sent a man to the
masthead to light the signal luntern, and
with his officers and marines pitched in,
but, tho shore party had got first blood,
und they fought like tigers, while tho
heavy shots from a big schooner not over
300 vards away came fust. The Tondors
retreated to tho quarterdeck und, encour?
aged by their officers, made a desperate
light, but it was evidently a losing-game.
The soW.'Ou,it.,~", hqr_8Weops out and in a
watch had iH-en^changea^?n^1-1^1^,*
lookout had just gone aloft when he called
out: '' Deck uhoy I There goes a gun right
nor'east off the starboard bow.''
In a minute all was in commotion. One
of rho officers sprang into the rigging with
anight glass and hailed: "Thero it goes
again! I hear the boom!"
The commander was on deck. "Thank
fortune, here comes tho wind from tho
west. Make all suil, Mr. Hamilton. We'll
run down and see what it is. That's
heavy gun. The Toridor has oulv
pounders. They would not make a flash
like that. Beut to quarters and oast off
tho starboard battery. Ram in a round
shot over grape!"
Tho breeze had freshened, and tho En?
terprise fairly walked. The flush of guns
was now seen from tho deck, and the look?
out hailed that ho saw a masthead light.
A tropic dawn is something to remem?
ber. Long before tho sun rises thero comes
a beautiful rosy light, making the sea a
sheet of gold, and thus everything was
made plain to tho Enterprise and hor crew.
Tho Spanish brig was enveloped in smoke,
and tho noiso of the conflict; was plainly
heard. Tho schooner was sweeping up to
board her deck, alive with mon.
Tho American was 300 yards away,
right across her bows, and then came the
order, "Give her two divisions?rake her
fore and aft. "?
The effect was tremendous. A chorus
of yells and screams from tho pirate and
down uaruo her foremast and malntopmast.

were clour. Backing her mainsail, in a
minute more the bowsprit of the Enter?

Toridor and theory was, " Boarders away I"
Tho man-o'-war's men made shore work
of the pirates in tho waist, and, all escap?
