The story was all feasible enough, and
easy of belief ; End Paul, though' his heart
might smart a little, for he had certainly
fallen "deoply in'love with the pretty Lot-ty-i

midst of which Don Pasco took the oppor
tunity to slip ; neither among tho persons
present was he missed by any but Paul,
who turned around to put a auostion hue
iound him absent. Thinking nothing of
the circumstanoe, but rather 'commending
his seise in quitting so riotous an assem
bly, Paul saunterted forth in the air by
the open French window, and was enjoy
ing the evening breeze coming over the
sea, as he smoked his cigar, and walked
to and fro beneath a long bMcony.
Sir Master Paul !' came in a hoarse
whisper from the farther end of the paved
terrace on which he walked, and which be
ing quite away from that portion of the
dwelling where the open window blazing
with light, pointed out where the guests
were, was also silent retired and dark, ex
cept such light as the moon gave through
asoud of rushing clouds the preourBer of
a sharp breeze about to follow.

'No, assented the seaman drily ; 'bah

which changes the point of sailing, eh ?'
'What what do you say V cried Paul,
quivering in every limb. JJJ

iconco of most of her crew, and the' bustle
censequent on bringing Lotty on ji'oard
the schooner's deck was' thronged with
tho boat's crew, and the merchant" ship's
men in an instant. In another, Paurfol
lowcd by Martingill and the lieutenant of
the frigate, rushed into the cabin,' just as
the shrieks of Lotty reached 'them; and
the sham Den, deteeted and mastered,
witb a face white with hate, baffled pas
sions,fear, and defiance, foand him as
boldly outwitted, as his own dark schemes
had been boldly planed and carried out.
'You are putting a rapid construction
upon a masking frolio, gentlemen?' he
began, when the officer cut him short.
'Bee the lady into the boat Mr. Free
man,' he said, 'and as for you, Don Pasco,
youmay turn out to be a gentleman we
much want ; and this schooner may be the
renowned Black Snake of which we will
know more to-morrow. Fewer words aro
best. We know a little of you, and mean
to know more. Fall back men, into the
boat, and pull for shore! And now good
night to you Ijon Pasco, Jor son Devil 1'
he added, as the boat was "shoved off, and
the rowers dropped their oars in the brine;
'I mean to know a littlp more of you, or
else'it will be no fault f. mine I Now
lads giye way !'
'Good night I' shouted the other ,as the
men prepared to pull ; aud to you fair
lady of my love, a fair good night, and me
better fortune 1 Heave you to a lover
who may appreciate you better ! As for
you my young blood
' TFell sir Don as for me what?' said
Paul, camly, as he stood up in the boat.
'Why we may meet again, that's all I'
repiied tho captain of the schooner ; and
the boat was now pulled shoroward in good
earnest, and Lotty conveyed to her father's
house, where the revellers yet kept it up,
and not till the following day did tho plan
ter know how near he nad been to losing
ins dauguter, nor to whom ho owed her
safety and restitution. The next day
too, when the commander of the frigate be
gaa to look about for the schooner, it is
scarcely necessaryato say, that not a ves
tigeof her was to be seen. On iuauiri
was found that her crew had all bten gatn-
ered out of the dens where they held their
wild revelry, and conveyed on board ; and
nothing was tobe seen of Don
?his soJToonor, the BJack'Snake,
Pasco, or of
which no
pno now doubt of, Ihongh she had
passed
as'a quiet, trader in the port of Kingston,
- and bore a very harmless name, which we
need net say was utterly false. With re-
spec'tto Lotty Buldockand Paul Freeman
there is nothing here to add. How much
pie pretty Creole, might wish to reclaim
