WRECK OF A TROOP SHIP.
In 18.17 the Chinees bad again forced a war
on England. They had chosen a bod time f or
conflict with Great Britain. The war with
Russia bad only just ended, leaving England
with an army much larger and better pre
pared fur active work in th. field than is
ooual in England. A small force waa ac
cordingly organised for operations in the
neighborhood of Canton, with Hong Kong as
its immediate baxe. My regiment waa one of
those arletfed for this service, and it sailed
from Portsmouth for Hong Kong early in
My company was one of those ordered to
embark in the Tranxit, a troop ship that bad
been purchased, when half Uuiahed, by the
admiralty, during the Crimean war. and that
bad already become notorious for her many
mishaps. Built by contract, the worst possi
ble work and material had bero put into her.
Bhe bad recently been patched up In on. of
our royal dockyards, and new engines had
been given her. At the laxt hour, however,
she bad been fitted f or sea in a great hurry,
and the result was neither satisfactory nor
creditable to our sj-stem of admiralty admin
istration. The anchor waa up finally, and aniid the
waving of handkerchiefs, and with bearta
filled with mingled feelings of Joy and sor
row, w. started slowly away toward the
Needles. As we neared Hurst Castle, th.
weather becoming thick and foggy, tbe cap
tain anchored for th. night, intending to be
gin his voyage down tbe channel at sunrise
Tb. noise of heaving at tbe anchor woke
me at dawn tbe following morning. I bad
Just turned over iu my narrow berth, enjoy
ing tb. pleasurable sensation of being off
duty, and so able to doze away for another
hour, when my soldier servant put bis head
into tbe cabin, and announced in bis mellow
Irish brogue that the ship bad fire feet of
water in tbe bold.
He did not know bow It came about, but
that she was already very deep in the water,
and that I bad better get up at one, he was
certain. I thought some blue Jacket bad
been "pulling his leg," so, smiling in what I
believed to be my superior wudom at tb. se
rious manner in which be bad taken the Joke,
I turned my face from th. light, bidding him
begone, and ld him to call me at 8.
A very few moments only could have
lapsed when he again aroused me from
pleasant dreams of friends at home. This
time he assured me in a very excited voice
that th. ship was sinking. While be spoke
tbe bugles sounded our "regimental call,"
and then th. "assembly. In a tew minutes
I was on deck In uniform, with my company.
We had just got under way, and were
steaming slowly in th. gray of a misty morn
ing back to Portsmouth. All bands wsrs
ordered to tb. pumps; tb. steam pumps war.
already at work.
The captain, fearing that the ship might
go down suddenly, hugged the shore ail th.
way, so ss to be able to ran her aground in
shallow water at any moment, and to aav.
those on board If he could not save bis ship.
The sun bad Just risen as w. neared Spit
bead, and there was no wind even to shake
out and so make visible the signals to tbs ad
miral atbore, describing our dangerous posi
tion. We bad a very large quantity of gun
powder on board, intended for our Beet In
Chinese waters, also many tons of ammuni
tion for the array.
As a precaution against dangerous etplo
atons near the dockyards, from time imme
morial th. positive rule at Portsmouth has
been that no ship shall enter th. harbor until
aha has discharged ail her powder St Spit
bead into special lighters provided for that
purpose. All that w. bad on board was al
ready well under water, for the leak waa in
tbe magazine. Ko danger from this barm
leas mixture of powder and water was there
fore powubie; but tbera was the ordxr signed
ly "a;y lordO of tb. admiralty, and our cap
tain did not dare to infringe it.
H. could not anchor, for his steam pumps
only worked u connection with th. enginea
which drove toe screw, so If tit. ship stopped
th. pumns would stop also, and w. should
bav. sunk In a few minutes.
I can never forget tbe absurdity of tbe po
sition. One of bar majesty's ships, crowded
with soldiers, half full of water, la a sinking
condition, steaming at fall speed round in a
circle at Spltbead, while th. naval authori
ties were striving to decipher th. signals of
distress displayed at our masthead. At last
tbe signals were made out by those on shore,
and formal permission waa given for us to
enter th. harbor.
After a great deal of cleverly executed
naval maneuvering, w. came alongside a dock
yard pier. To it w. wer. lasbed with chains
and stout hawsers to prevent the ship from
moving, while tbe screw turned at full
speed, its movement being, as I bav. said, a
necessary accompaniment of th. steam
pumps, whose action waa necessary to keep
tb. ship afloat. The troops were Transferred
to an old hulk, wuiou had one been a dash
The Transit waa docked that evening and
we then venoed the suspicion that had been
mooted on board all the morning, but in aa
undertone, namely, that w. bad anchored In
too shallow water, and when the tide went
out, bad sat down upon our anchor. Tbe af
fect of this unfortunate operation waa to
mala large hoi. in the ship's bottom,
through which tb. saa had been pouring la
all nigbt, without any one being a bit tb.
wiser. Indeed It was not until tbe anchor
was being weighed that any one suspected
that there waa sotnethiug wrong.
In a few days tbe damage was repaired,
the injured stores and powder replaced, and
we ones more steamed out of harbor, our
friends wishing us "better luck next time."
Batter luck was not, however, in store for us,
for w. wer. no sooner well out in tb. chan
nel than w. encountered vary heavy weather,
the ship rolling heavily with every wars.
W. now discovered that her rigging was
most defective. It had been don. In a great
hurry by tb. dockyard workman, and not by
the crew, ss was usually tbe case. Our main
mast began to "wabble" from aide to fid.
with every roll in a menacing fashion, th.
abrouds being too loose to afford It much sup
port. Indeed, It was considered advisable to
him. Vessels did not go so fast then ss they
do now, and I remember that we were Just
Ave months and three days from Phillips'
dock, Liverpool. ,
"Our freight was gold dust for the return
trip, and tbe worn of It was that we could
get a craw only of convicts. Our own tail
ors caught th. gold fever, which was run
ning very high then, and while the ship waa
lying at Mai bourne ran away t th. gold
fields to prospect for themselves. These con
victs wer. old sailors who bad been trans
ported for crime, but who had served out
their terms and wished to return to England
by working tbeir passage. David that waa
my husband's nams aald w. could do no
better than to tak tbem, and be hadnt tb.
lightest fear that they would maks any
trouble; tbey were too anxious to get back to
"All seemed to go well for a while, but
after w. bad been out to sea for some time.
It seemed to my husband as if th. Bonanza)
waa little off her bearlngi; to tb. first
bright day b. took an observation. H. waa
but up for about an hour making th. calcu
lations. When he cam. out 1 saw by hit face
that something was wrong. Ha went aft and
pent tome time with tbs helmsman. He had
foand that the Bonansa waa off bar bearings,
sure enough. Tbe man at tbe wheel told him
that sha wouldn't mind her helm that the
waa water logged. Tbia got about among
tb. passengers, and they began to be nervous;
o my husband announced that he would
mak. an examination, and Invited two of tb.
passengers to accompany him into tb. hold.
Tbey went down Into the lower bold, where
the ballast la stowed, and found the ship waa
all right. The captain eent tb. boatswain
aloft to giv. out through tb. trumpet tbat
th. report was falsa
"After this I could see tbat David waa un
easy, although I did not then understand
"I awok. one night just be ore seven bells
truck. When I heard tbe balls, I knew tbat
tt waa only half past t, and waa trying to
get to ileec again, wb SSJ art si
sxoepti. aiaHquick, caught a peculiar scrap

Hem to be anything alarming about this, for
most th pt are full of rata, but tbs tact was,
that . th gold tank waa built into the ship
just on ler th. captain's berth, tbe only an
trance leing by a trap door. If this torap
ing cams from the tank it could not be rata,
for no rtt who bad any respect for hit teeth
would I likely to experiment on the aino
lining. A few nights afterward I beard tb.
nous ag Un, and felt tor. it waa torn, sharp
Instrunvat working on a metallic surfaoe.
I awakt ned David, but ha could not hear
anything, and said that It tnmX be my im
aginatioi. "Soon after this, I noticed that a curious
change I ad com. over Arnie, our cabin boy.
His whole name waa Arnold Mc In tyre. He
was rea ly very young for tbe place, but I
had been pleased with his appearance and in
duced my husband to tak. him. This was tb.
boyt Or trip. Hit father had been a pros
perous sc natter in Australia, a Scotchman by
birth, an 1 a fin. man.
"One i light tbe father waa awakened by
tbe barking of th. dogs, and on going to tb.
door foui d a gang of bush rangers surround
ing the h nine. They evidently knew that b.
had beat celling cattle that day and had
brought bom. a large turn of money. It It
not likelj that they Intended to harm nun,
for it w is only th. money tbat they were
after, but be showed fight and knocked two
of them down.
Well, th. rad of It was that the poor
Scotchman got a bullet through hit head,
and the t usb rangers rode away with every
thing val la We. Mrs. Mclntyr. was never
tb. earn, again. She lost her wits, tot th.
baby fall on its head (in consequence of which
It died not long afterward), and tb. took no
notice of Arnie. He was a bright, clever lad,
and It eeeiaed a pity that be should go to de
ttrnotion, so we took car. of him. H. waa
very fond of us, and I took great pleasure in
teaching I tin, for b. waa very grateful and
a quick scliolar.
"All at once, aa I said, a great change
seemed to bav. com. over him. He came
into the cabin on. morning at whit, aa a
piece of canvas, and I noticed that bis arm
shook so t tat be had to carry the captain's
coffee cup with both hands. He declared b.
was well, s nd seemed to be startled when we
spoke sudd mlv to him; but during breakfast
I often not.ced that he was gazing at at with
an indescribable expression. I bav. teen
something like it In the face of a dumb ani
mal when it Is trying In vain to mak. itself
understood by a human being.
"I was si Xing on deck with my work, one
pleasant m a-ning toon after, when, happen
ing to need a book which waa below, I sent
Arnie down to get it. Wben be banded It to
me there w is a folded slip of paper between
the leaves; a single word was scrawled upon
it the wor 1 'Mutiny.'
"That da r wben we had finished our din
ner, the cat tain rose in bis place and mad. a
short speed. H. said something like thit:
" 'Ladies and gentlemen, I wish to have a
few straigb- words with you. I daot wish
to cause ala m, and hope there is no occasion
for any, but I think it best that there should
be a fair understanding between us, as to
bow matter stand. I have reason to believe
that all Is not right on board tbat there la
mischief brewing among the crew. If I can
have the su( port of the passengers I feel sura
that I can n anage the men. Tber must be
no panic am jng you. It la absolutely neces
sary that all be calm, watchful and self con
trolled. I bdieve that you will be. I think
I can trust vou and shall expect you to sus
tain ma. We will look tbit danger in the
face, and we shall tee whether a doten true
Englishmen aui be cowed by a gang of con
vict!' "The sneec h had the effect my husband de
sired. The laasengert felt that ha trusted to
their honor uid courage, and the gentlemen
all promised to be ready to stand by him in
any emergen jy. Th. captain had all hands
piped on iizk and we followed. Tbe crew
were a hard looking set of fellows, most of
them, with rough, unshaven, scarred faces,
and tbey glo'vered at tbe captain from under
their heavy eyebrows like wild bean.
"My busba id was not much of an orator,

he ever can; and 1 awure you be laid down
the law to tluse meu iu words they could un
