About three weeks after the Ameri
can captain had visited the Wellesley
that lubberly colonial brig, with her
squab buat.i hunched at her motherly
davits, was rolling most uncomfortably
upon a large, pea green swell, whose
lofty folds as they swung in stately
procession Retrace! to bo wrinkled by a
breeze of their own making. Tho sky
was hung with soft dark masses of
etorm cloud, broken and departing. The
heavens between were a faded green,
and hero and there upon the horizon
they were painted gray iu slanting
patches by falling rain.
It was about 9 o'clock in tho morn
ing. Tho brig was under single reefed
topsails and foresail, and tho thunder
this canvas knocked out of its heart
against tho masts seemed to fetch a
faint, echoing growl from tho dark cano
pies afar. Nothing, not even a light
ship, built of wood and sheathed with
metal ever rolled inoro abominably
than this same brig Wellesley, becalmed
iu n heavy swell. .She dipped her fat
sides to tho rail. Tho rush of polished
brine was within hand's reach. You
looked for the whole ocean to roll
aboard ; then groaning shockingly in ev
ery timber, with yells in tho wren abed
rigging, and a furious beating of help-
le-s canvas aloft, over she'd tumble
dn p down to tho other rail, leaping
half way back, as if in affright, spring
ing her round bows out of the heave,
While the lirino roared white from her
headboards, then tumbliug uodilv over
ngr.in anyd volleys of snaps and jerking
and straining iicipps.
This had bet n troing ou for some
boon. It was impossible to walk the
deck. The seamen staggt red and rushed
if they let go. Presently the command
er, tightly gripping the hand rail, rose
with a wary eye to his neck and limbs
through the little companion batch and
stood in it while ho looked about him.
Air. Hardy was limbing by the main
royal backstay, almost abreast of the
led faced officer. The wheel leaped like
something living and vicious in the
strong gra-p of the helmsman, but even
as tho commander rose tho brasswork
ornamentation upon tho biuuacle box
was smitten into several stars of glory
by a Wati ry beam of the sun. Com
mauder Boldock looked up to see what
made that light, as though surprised;
then, watching his chance, came out of
tho hatch and drove over to the side of
Mr. Hirdy, clutching at the stay with
fingers like fishhooks.
"I ho; a those fellows will have man
aged to keep their ship alive during the
lata Waal her." said the commander. "It
will be very vexatious should we ulti
mately discover she has gone to the
bottom, gold and all not that tho all

Jacket. There were teu of tbem. aud,
plus one, that's tho number the ship
saued with out of Sydney.
The commander observed that Mr.
Hardy stooped to dodge and peer and
bob at tho horizon, where, following
the direction of the mate's stare, Bol
dock saw a white gleam of sail coming
mau going ai inc edge or a small squall
of gray rain passing slowly.
"Yes, I see her. sir," exclaimed tho
Wader, not waiting to be address
ed. He made a bolt for the companion
and cleverly grasped it. He was safe iu
the embrace of that cover and took the
long brass telescope off the brackets to
view tho distant sail.
No seaman was ever more expert in
the art of the glass than Boldock, but
ao wild was the rolling of the brig, so
treacherously swift the antics of the
distant sail, that many minutes passed
before the commander pinned her. He
then correctly judged that she was a
vessel in distress, first by the circum
stance of her having lost her fore topgal
lant mast, next by her sliowing not a
rag of cloth aave a fore topmast staysail,
which looked to be very ill eat She
jras a bark, and Boldock thotutbt he
saw a spot of color at her gaff end. But
she was then four or five tnileg off, and
her figure was lost in the shadow cast
by the clouds which hung over her.
"Sr6 what you can .make of her, Mr.
Hardy," said the commander.
The quaint sea dandy, with his leer
and his shoes aud bows, made a plunge
for the companion cover aud swung in
to it as the commander swung out. He
peered and peered. While he looked the
suii shone a little brightly aud lighted
up the ocean iu the direction of the
bark. Mr. Hardy continued to gaae;
then, starting with a cry of surprise, he
"I beg your parden, sir, hut I caught
sight of the hull of that ship just theu,
and if she's not the Queen theu I'm
Prince Albert, sir."
"Let me look again," said the com
Long and thirstily did he stare. His
table of red face, with one eye screwed
up, hung immovable at the telescope.
The sun routinned to throw his morn
ing brightness on the ocean, aud the
color of the blue between the clouds
was growing purer. After a littlo the
commander looked round at Mr. Hardy,
With an expression of passing suffoca
tion in the cast and color of his features.
They stared at each other.
"Upon my word," exclaimed Bol
deck in that sort of voieo which he
would use iu church, "I believe you are
right. I caught the length of the hull
distinctly when it was hove high a
bark panted preen, answering unques
tionably to the burdtu of the Queen.
Why should it not be she?" be roared
out, ov 1 mastered by excitement. "She
should be somewhere hereabouts. We're
inside of a day's sail of Halloruu is
land. Step below, Mr. Hardy, and give
my compiimeuts to Mr. Mattbews and
ask him to come on deck. "
While Hardy was gone Boldock kept
his telescope upon the distant bark,
which sometimes sprang her spars into
the lenses, and once or twice a strip of
greenish hull. The sunshine brightened
her flag. It was red, but Boldock could
not make out whether it was a distress
signal. Now arrived Mr. Mattbews,
who had kept watch from 4 till 8, and,
having breakfasted, had turned in for a
"Keep in the companionway," said
the commander, standing outside, "and
take this telescope and look at yonder
vessel and tell me what you think of
Mr. Matthews was scarcely wide
awake. He had tumbled out of his bunk
with a seaman's hurry. After a great
deal of maneuvering with tho unwieldy
telescope he caught the object. A grin
of amazement that worked tho flesh
about his lips into a hunchback's wrin
kles widened his mouth. He looked
again, and then in tones firm with con
viction he said to the commander,
"That bark down there, sir, is the
"Blow my sweet wind!" murmured
tho commander, with a look of stupefac
tion. "It is always the wroug weather
at sea. Why doesn't some air come
"Most undoubtedly the Quoen," re
peated Mr. Matthews, who continued
to seesaw with the long brass tubes as
they rested ou the edge of tho cover,
himself standing inside.
"Forward, there!" bawled the com
mander. "Sir," answered a voice.
"Send the Queen's men aft."
"Aye, aye, sir. "
The five of them presently arrived,
staggering and lurching like drnnkeu
seamen on the slope of the deck as thev
"Here," said Boldock to the first r,f
thtm, who happened to be Tom, "get
you inside that hatch, my mau. and
look through that telescope and sell me
what ship that is. "
The instant Tom caught her he howl
ed out, with his eyes still at the glass,
"Slowed if she ain't the Queen. " All
allowance was to bo made for great ex
citement. If that ship was the Qaeen,
tho men's clothes were on board of her,
their certificates of discharge, seven
pounds of tobacco belonging to them
were iu their chests and a few pounds
"Out you come," said the command
er. "Next mau. "
One after another the five stepped in
to the batch, and after dodging and
ducking and mowing and sweeping
with the immense telescope declared
that the bark yonder was the Queen.
They then went forward and looked at
her in a little crowd upon the forecas
tle. The heavens were clearing, the hori
zon opening, the atmosphere brighten
ing, the colors aud hues of the bark
stealing ont clearer and sharper.
"If she's not theQoeeu." said Mr.
Matthews, "this brig's not the Welles
ley. ' '
"Are the sconudrels who stole her
aboard cf her?" exclaimed the com
mander. "She locks to me to have broken
adrift from her moorings," said Mr.
"Moorings! Where would you moor
her?" said Boldock.
"Cff Hallorau island."
"Aud why not?" cried the command
er, instantly seeing the point. "There
has been a lot of dirty weather of late. "
"That fore topmast staysail looks a if
they'd been tending her at anchor,"
said Mr. Matthews.

aid Mr. Hardy.
"Will they show fight, I wonder,
when we bear down?" asked the com
mander, and his nostrils enlarged while
he glanced at his one gun. "I rather
hope so. They're all armed with re
volvers, you tell me. Mr. Matthews? I'll
lead the boarders. Hardy. "
"Von'llnot find me far off, sir," said
Mr. Matthews. "Nearly all that I own

thetic gesture at the bark. "i in voi.

to think I should have been such a fool
as to lead for years the life of a doe far
no more than what yon may pack in a
aea chest. "
Mr. Hardy lightly groaned.
"Are von talking nf the Oneon"
cried Miss Mansel 's voice at the foot of
the companion ladder.
"Aye, that is right," answered the
commander, putting his great red face
into the companion. "We've fallen in
with your ship. We're waiting for noth
ing but a little wind. For gracious sake,
mind. Miss Mansel. We are rolling
frightfully. Hold on like grim death
till I get at you."
He sunk down the steps, and, clasp
ing the young lady firmly around the
waist, half carried ber to the top cf the
ladder, where they stood together, be
bolstering and shoring her up most af
fectionately while she looked at the
bark, bnt not with the glass, fcr that
was beyond her. The sea admits of sit
uations which the land provides no
apologies for. Her robe still consisted
of her dressing gown, ber hat of the
white cap of sailcloth.
The truth is the dressmaker forward
had proved a failure. "His fits would
give any woman fits," Boldock said,
bursting into a loud laugh when Miss
Mansel, attired like a windsail. arms
crooked out with tightness and without
a waist, stepped from her cabin. "He
shall be 6ent to Paris. The French love
originality in cot. The dressmaker of
the Wellesley will charm thm. " So
the young lady was obliged to stick to
her dressing gown, though she contrived
some underclothing for herself out of
the seaman s misfits. The man was
greatly mortified by his failure aud was
much laughed at forward. He was un
usually profane fcr two days and was
heard to say, with several imprecations
in the old style, that "if ever be was
caught cutting out for another woman,
might he be cut up himself. "
Tho commander, bolstering the young
lady in the hatch, peeped around at her
to observe the effect the bark produced

"I can do nothing till some wind

the figure she makes that her people are
in a fighting state cf mind. "
She asked a lew more questions. The
commander then assisted her below and
avr her in safety to her cabin.
Now followed a brain distracting
spell cf suspense and expectation. When
the afternoon came, the swelling folds
of sea had sensibly stink, and at abont
4 o'clock a small breeze blew from the
east. Bcldcck instantly made all sail,
and, with an amidship "helm and square
jo.uo uiu iiis one piece or artillery
loaded with grape, steered on a straisht
course for the bark.
It might now be seen that the vessel's

day, under her ill hoisted wing of stay

end bad shaken its frlda cut to tbe wind.

that the union jack was reversed. It

At this hour it was no longer danger-

Miss Mantel was seated in a chair se

stately awing of ber lofty spars. She
