tuvo-of hemp, valued at $250,000, and
with a crew of twenty-two men, in
cluding two Manilla Indians mid two
Chinamen. Tlio only Americans were
the captain, Uobert h.. Clarke of Long
Island, and the mato and second
mate, Holme and Davis. The others
were (.icrniitf 8 and Scandinavians. A
few days after leaving Manilla one of
tlio Indians complained of sickness,
but when tlio captain decided that he

with the Indians, that is remembered
by any of the survivors from that time
until midnight on January 2d. A few
minutes Hfter midnight, January I'd,
apt. C'larko was aroused from h is sleep,
by some ono calling, "Capt. Clarke,

his night clothes, he ran up the after

I'm men iistdo were un
doubtedly demoralized and panic-

woumh-d thought they were dying,
and the others seem te have boon en
tirely bewildered. V. Nlinn.lt was
the first one stabbed by the Indians
after they wounded the matin, lie
was walking on the Halt-deck near
them, and when he saw one of the In
dians come up the steps from the main
deck .he asked him what he wanted.
He pretended not to understand, and
walked on toward where the unites
were sitting, anil tho other Indian
came tin the steps utmost immedi
ately. The mates seemed to pay no
attention to their present's, bnt con
tinued their conversation, the first
mate giving directions as to the work
that w as to be dono by the early
morning watch. Tho action of the
Indians was quick as lightning, and

Already every sail and mast was

that were launched, llie inree men
who had charge of the smaller boat,
swamped it nndertheliows of the ship
with a cask of water, and all hands
were packed into the other boat,
seven hundred miles from the nearest
speck of land, and that land a small
island which is often missed by good
mariners who are in search of it. Capt.
Clarke had the good fortune to sight
the island at 3 o'clock p.m., Sunday,
January 11th. I have sought in vain
for the motive which impelled the In
dians tocommit thishorriblo butchery.
If they had any more tangible than a
savage thirst for blmwl it remains hid
den in the realms of conjecture.

Having made the cabin and the
forecastle , secure on tho outside,
butchered' the carpenter lJoothke, and
tho man on the lookout, Antonie
Serein, tho Indians now had the decks
to themselves, the only other iK'rson
alive there being the Chinese cook.
Ah Say, w ho was in mortal terror, ami
as useless as a kitten. They forced
him to cook for them, and he says
that they put a lot of matches in tho
coffee with tho hope of isiisoning
them. They warned him to stay in
bin galley if he wanted to live an
other minute, and while one prowled
about the forecastle the other lingered
nt.tho windows and doors of thecabin,
no doubt hoping and expecting at
every moment to get some token that
tho captain was dead. Ah Sam, the
steward, had run away and locked
himself in his room, when he saw the
captain's wounds, and it was only by
tho threats that he was prevailed upon
to lend Mrs. Clarke the slightest uid.
Thus passed the dreary hours from 1
o'clock until daybreak, and on that
dismal Sunday tliero was scarcely any
change. The captain lingered be
tween life and death. He knew noth
