CMPS- RaaTA.--Hon Kong .pa.
per$ give a full account of a recent
capture aM" burning ot twenfy-two
piratb junk# by a couple of Briti-i
gunboats which sailed from Uovg
Kong, ,uly 12, for 1ainon niland, and
discovered the pirates in a sinall idlet.
The place is desribed as a beautiful
spot, covered with. a luxuriant tropical
vegetation, and usually affording a
sale retreat. The junks each mount
ed about ten large gurts, and showed
fight without he.sitation. The gun
boats advanced to within short range,
and were occasionally struck, though
most of the balls from the pirat'e junks
passed over thenin.
The cannonadiog wept on for about
two hours, when a new turn was given
to the cotirse of events by means of a
landing party from the gunboats,
A,bout forty-five mun were quietly
put on shore, and under cover of the
jungle made their yesy round to the
part of the crook where the pirate ves
sels were lying, without being obsorv
ed until they came close to the junks.
Fronrthese lying close alonig the sliore
the pirates itmediately tied sculling
In their sampansor sw-mming ashore
to the opposite side of the creek, and
gradually, as the landing party took
possession of the junks along the shore,
and by means of boats began tooboard
those which were anchored out in the
creek, the pirates gave up, and even
from the vessels lying furthest out,
the crew slipped over the sides and dis
appeared i th or without the assist
aice of safnpans.
A number. of pirates were made
prisoners, but being mostly wonnded
and in'need of medical attention, \vere
ill'wed to escape. The Junks were
all burnt, notwithstanding some of
them contained valua.ble cargos. It
is thought that the severe punishment
thus inficted, and the organization of
of a court at Hong Kong for the sup.
pression of 'piracy, -(the admiral of the
station boag chief justice) will have
a-m6st saliutary effect..
