It must be nearly lifty-tive years ago
now since the events happened. I was
about twenty or twenty-one years of
age and had" made one voyage in the
(olden Gem out and home to the West
Indies and Honduras. The Golden
Gem was schooner-rigged aud was a
little thing of about 250 tons burden.
She was ow ned by the captain, a Welsh
roan named Thomas Thomas, and had
ma'J many voyages in the West In
our ""Ootid voyage we took out a
general cargo from London to Santo,
on the South American coast; we had
a fair average passage out. and it was
the captain's inleution after he had dis
charged our cargo there, to run up to
Honduras and load up a cargo of ma
hogany for home, as usual.
However, when we wore discharg
ing at Santos he changed his mind,
and, instead of going for mahogatn-,
we sailed lo Uio Janeiro and there
loaded a lot of war material guns,
cannon, gunpowder and other sttift
f.T Valnariso, for the government of
This was a longish voyage for the
little Gem. but the Chili "government
were anxious to get their ammunition
round quickly, and ottered such a
tempting freight that our captain could
not resist tae chance of making a b
All went well, and in due course we
arrived at our destination atul dis
charged our cargo successfully. We
learnt at Valparaiso that trouble was
brewing between Chili and Peru and
that hostilities might break out at any
time. This, of course, accounted for
the anxiety displayed fcr the war ma
terial we had brought round.
Captain Thomas had intended going
to Callao, in Pern, for a cargo of guano
for some port on our way homo, but
with such a close prospect of war be
tween the two countries he concluded
to five the idea up.
We had been discharged some few
days nnd our captain was on the point
of sailing in ballast when a messenger
from his agents came down to the
schoouer and asked him to g; up to the
Night passed and we saw nothing of
our skipper till next day. w'(n he
came on board with a stronger.
Of course we were ail a.-g U know
what was going on. Every man of us
felt a keen peiyonal interest in the lit
tle craft, and when the ma!;' was sent
for to join liiti enptaiuaud I hi stranger
we guessed something special vvas on.
After awhile the mate caiiiv ' ir-'.aid.
aud we all clustered round him to hear
"Have any of you any experience in
diving?" said he. -1 mean." he con

"The captain is thinking of g -Muz .v.i a

cess there will be a nice little bonus
all round for us."
It appeared that the stranger had
chartered the schooner to sail for Am
brose Island, which was a lit lie bit o.
an island about GX) miles northwest of
The stranger was a Spanisli grandee
named Don Carlo do A-'.iirara. and
from what had transpired in the oaliin
it seemed that a pan'.sn meroliantman
had. many vears before, been wrecked
on the island and become a total loss
and none of her crew had ever been
Two suits of diving dre-s were sent
on board, with the accompanying
pumps and other arrangements, and
another experienced diver was en
gaged to superintend matters.
After we had got our s-ipylifs of
fresh provisions on board the anchor
wa weighed and we stood out to sea.
The rn was soon aecomjl:.-.heit aud
by noon of the. third day we were

we had shipped at Valparaiso an 1 lour
men. of whom I was one. st.n te I oil
for the shore.
The island was surrounded by a belt
of coral reefs, which in ordinary tine
weather did not make their whereabouts-visible,
as they lay quiet and
treacherous under about a fathom or
so of water.
but when the sea ran at all hiir'n
aud the loug rolling swe 1 of thel'a,
citic Ocean broke In-in i - gentle mood,
then the vicious. wi.-ked-K..oking snags
showed their ugly te-'.'n.
When we got ash-eif we pulled the
boat tip, and then, under the tipaiirs
instructions, we separated an I spread
ourselves over the shore tn hunt for
any remains or signs of the lost Span
iard. After a than, lime we heard a bail
from the northern end ft the island,
and hurrying r we found t:iu captain
and others grouoe-.J nronn 1 a rau? :f
black and rotting limbers, which we
immediately recognize as the debris
of a wrecked vessel. This wa evident
proof that at some time or auolliec a
vessel of considerable ie had been
cast up at this spot.
Don Astigara was satisnea mat ins j
quest was here, so after we had cast
about for awhile, hunting for further
evidence, we returned to our boat and
It was then arranged that a camp
should be set up on the island, and the
don, with the three divers and three
other men, should prosecute their
operations frm land. This would
leave the schooner free to put to sea in
case of bad weather, and also allow
diving operations to be commenced at
once, by the aid of a boat on the inner
ide of the coral reef.
Next day wo were busy getting the
things ashore, and it took us till well
on to noon before this was completed;
then, while some of the meu com
menced rigging up a ccuplo of tent,
the boat was made ready, and Harris,
the head diver, with his suit aud nec
essaries, went off, with (Vptain Tomas
and tho don. to make his first descent
on the margin of the reef, opX'psitc the
remains of ibe wreck on shore.
I went in the boat with the;;., an I I
assure you I did not envy Harris; when
he got rigged up in his awkward suit
of clothes, with his uuwicldy looking
metal helmet, with its great big star
ing glass eyes, he appeared like some
uncanny, antediluvian monster.
For some while we had no intima
tion from him. beyond his various calls
for more or less air. After he had
been down ten minutes or perhaps a
quarter of an hour, we received the
call to imll up the rope, ami w'kmi we

While we were examining these wt

was coming up. so we started hau'.iug
in tho slack of the air-line, and in a
few minutes his monstrous headgear
rose up alongside, as he climbed u; the
We had chosen our spot so fortunate

the sunken ship. The wreck had set

covered with -and and broken coral;
she had evidently laid there for years.
He had found the box jammed in the
cal.'u gangway; he gave it as his
opinion tha:. with time, we could get
at everything in the wreck. The dif
tiet.lty would be the clearing out the
sand aud r;tbbish. which hail drifted
into the cabins and below the decks ia
Don A-tigara was much elated with
this report, and it certainly looked as
if the information he had obtained had
more than a problematical basis of
truth in it. We took the exact bear
ings of our anchorage and then went
asiiore to make preparation for com
mencing hard work on the morrow.
Next morning we started at day
light to get our boats loaded for our
first day's operations; aud. after a
good breakfast, we put o with the
t lire a divers. The boats were anchored,
one on either beam of the wreck, so
that two divers could work at once.
Everything being in readiness, down
they went, and we ail waited anxious
ly for the tirst intimation of their
search. We could get some Idea of
their movements from the working of
the air lines, and presently we got the
call to haul up, which we did. aud
found another iron-bound box.
On breaking this open out rolled a
mas of golden doubloons and silver
dollars. Then we sent up a shout of
triumph, which the men on shore ami
on tiie schooner took up and repeated
again and again.
We were still in the midst of our ex
citement when we noticed the other

He and Harris hail finished break

down one of the cases, wheti of the
lower boxes burst asunder, and the
top boxes had fallen on them; lie was
thrown backward and fell through the
doorway, while one of the chests had
so jammed his legs against another
that it was some minutes before he
could get free.
He found Harris prostrate in the
corner near the door, with a couple of
chests crushing his legs and thighs;
he lifted one of the loxes off him, and
then, linding.himself growing faint, he
hastened up as fast as he Could.

Tom was climbing rocked and swayed.

Captain Thomas, as this thought dash

The climbing man's progress wj
labored and slow, as we Could feel

his form appeared with his burden in
his arms, willing hands pulled them
both into the boat.
Harris "as, after all. not (seriously

Next day Tom iilid Dob got up the
rest of the"chrsl, which all contained
bars and ingots of gold nnd silver and
specie. It was quite a little job. after
we had repaired the damaged cases, to
get them on board the schooner. There
were eleven chests all told, and they
weighed about two hundred pounds
About one-third of their contents
was gold and the rest silver, aud we
calculated there were over UoJ.Odd al
together. We spent several more days search
ing the wreck for further treasnre.but
without success; evidently the strong
room was the sole place in which it
had been stowed. Our camp was now
broken up, and the Golden Gem was
put on her homeward course.
As we had plenty of provisions on
board, our captain agreed with the don
to double Cape Horn and sail direct
for Eoudon. and they were now all
anxiety lo get home quickly.
Our captain's share of .the treasure
was to be 10 per cent, besides the
freight already paid, so he stood to
make somewhere about 'o.)J; the
two mates were to receive i'oji) apiece,
and the men, of whom there were

In due time we made the English
channel and arrived in London safe

word, and we all hail our promised
share of the Spaniard's lost treasure.
