ceed if it should be necessary to board
the enemy. He was follow'ed by the
ca'ffin; who exhorted them to fidelity
and courage; urging upon their consid.
eration the well known motto of the
brave Nelson, 'England expects every
- man to do his duty.' In addition to all
these preparations on deck, some men
vere stationed in the tops with small
arms, whose duty it was to attend to
trimming the sails and to use their
muskets, provided we came to close ac.

called sail trimmers, to assist in work

change her position during the battle.

main deck It was my duty to supply
the gun with powder, a boy being up
pointed to each gun in the ship on the
side we were engaged for this purpose.
A wooden screen was placed before the
entrance to the magazine, with a hole
in it, through which the catridges were
passed to the boys. We received them
there, and covering them with ourjjack.
ets, hurried to our respective guns.
These precautions are observed to pre.
vent the powder taking fire before it
reaches the gun.
Thus we all stood waiting orders, in
motionless suspense. At lst we fired
three guns from the larboard sido of the
main deck; this was followed by the

Then came the orders to 'wear ship,'
and prepare to attack the enemy with
our starboard guns. Soon after I leard
a firing from some other quarter, which
- at first supposed to be a discharge
from our quarter deck guns; though it
proveO to be the enemy's cannon.
A strange noise, such as I never
heard before, next arreste-l my attention
it sounded like the tearing of sails, just
over our heads. This I soon ascertinill
ed to be the wind of the enemy's shot.
The firing after a few minutes' cessl
tion, recommenced. The roaring orf
cannon could now be heard from all
partsofour trembling ship, and min.
;gling as it did with thatof our foes, it
,niade a most hideous noise. 1Hy.and-by

ship. The -whole scene becaine inide.

Ing the ground with the victims of its
wrath; only in our case, the scene was
rendered more horrible than that, by
the presence of torrents of blood which

the boys beloning to the guns next to

of the engagement, and I had to spring
wvith all my might to keep three or fo'ur
guns suipplied with cartridges. I saw
two of these lads fall neanrly together.

kept cheering with all their might.
I choe-ed with them, though I confess
I scarcely knew for what. Certainly
there was nothing very inspiriting in
the aspect 6f tiings where I was sta
tioned. So terrible had been the
work of destruction iound us, it was
termed the slaughter-house. Not on
ly had we had several men and boys
killed and wounded, but several of
the guns were disabled. The one I
belonged to, had a piece of the muz
zie knocked out: and when the ship
rolled, it struck a beam of the uppe,
deck with such force as to become
jammed and fixed in that position. A
twenty four pound shot had also
passed through the screen of the
magazine, immediately over the ori
flee through which we passed our pow
der. The schoolmaster received a
death wound. The brave boatswain,
who caie from the sick bed to the din
of battle, was fastening a stopper on
the back stay which wais shot away,
when his head was smashed to pieces
by a cannon ball; another man going
to complete the utifinished task, was
also struck down. Another of our
midshipmen also received a severe
wound. The unfortunate ward room
steward, who attempted to cut his
throat on a formrer occasion, was kill.
ed. A fe'low inianed John, who for
some petty offence, had been sent on
board as a punishment, was carried
past ine wounded. I distinctly hcard
the large blood drops fall pat, pat, pat,
on the deck; his wounds were mortal.
Even a poor goit, kept by the ollicers
for her milk, did not escape the gen.
eral carnage; her hind legs were shot
o!T, and poor Nan was thrown over
Such was the terrible scene amiid
which we kept on shouting and firinig.
Our men fought like tigers. Somne
of thet pulled ol their jackets others
their jackets, and vests; while some
still more determinel, had taken off
their shirts, and, with nothing but a
handkerehief tied arotnd the waist
bands of their trotisers, fuIiglt like

him occasimnallv, 1bY saying Ve'll
done my brave bov, you are worth
your weight in gold.'
I have been asked what were iv
feelings during this fight. I feit
pretty much as I suppose every oaie
does at such a time. That men are
without thought when they stand
a1d the dying and the dead. is too
absurd an idea to be entertained a
ful, by 1 i.-t
what coubl v.- o '-..
blance, at least of animation? To
run from our qluarters would have
been certain dheath from the hands of
our own oflicers; to giv'e way to gloom
to show fear would do no goo:d, and
might brand us with the niame of
cowards, and insure certain defeat.
Our only tru'e phiilosophyi, therefLe.',
was to make the best of' our' situation,
by fighting bravely mald chieiflully.
I thought a great dheal, hw~ ever, of
the other world; every groan, every
falling man, tol me that the nexst
instant I might be befoere' the JIudge
of all the earth. Pcr this 1 felt uin
pre'pa red; butt being w itiniut anly r
tieular knowledge of religiouis truth.
I satisfied imyself' by repeat iing oaain
and again the Lord's prayer. :and'
promnisuig that ifluhe spared me I woul

than ever bef' re(. This pr, misc I

Suddenly the rattlinig of the iron

cease firing. A prdfounid silence en

w'e lay utterly helpless. Our head
biaces were shot away; the fore and
main topmasts were gone; the nmizzen
nast hung over the stern, having car
ried several men over in its fall; we
were in a complete state of wreck.
A council was now held amona
the officers of the quarter deck. Our
condition was now perilous in the ex
treme; victory or escape was alike
hopeless. Our ship was disabled;
inany of our men were killed, and
many wounded. The enemy would
without doubt bear'lown upon us in
a few moments, and, as she could
now choose her own position, would,
without doubt rake us fore and aft.
Any further resistance was therefore
lly. So, in spite of the hot-brained
lieutenant, Mr. ILove, who advised
them not to strike, but to sink along
side, it was determined to strike our
bunting. This was done by the hand
of a brave fellow named Wats:)n,
whose saddened brow told how BC
verely it pained his lion heart to do
it. To me it was a pleasing sight,
for I had seen fighting enough for one
Sunday, more than I wished to see
again on a week day.
