Quito a number of years ago, I slipped on bourd tho Waminoar bark, bound to Calcutta, and from thence to Canton. She was a good craft enough, and had been a profitable one to her owners, though sho was by no meaus a fast sailor. Her first point of excellence lay in nor strength ol endurance, sho being what is technically termed 'an excellent sea boat.' Her cap tain for tho present cruise was a new man, and a perfect stranger to tho crew. Me owued the somewhat odd name of Buft'e Stark. Captain Buffo Stark was n middle aged mnn,and as powerful in his build as a lion: His shoulders were massive in their breadth and thickness, and his neck was so thick that it formed nearly a straight outline from the bottom of tho ear to tho bend of the shoulder. His countonanco was indi cative of the basest passions, though, in fact, there was much intelligence lurking about the deep lines of his dark features. He hail written recommendations from several Mobile firms, and upon the strength of these ho was placed in command of the bark, behaving first, however, undergone an examination in seamanship and naviga tion. Ship-masters were at that time scarce, and banco the. owner felt pleased to think they had secured so efficient a captain. They did not have time to send on to Mobile to find if Buffo Stark's rec ommendations were genuine, for, if they had, in all probability Stark's chance would have been a slim one. The bark bad a good crow of twenty, fiva men, all told, and I soon found that they all entertained pretty much the same opinion in regard to the captain. Even Isaac Wales, our first mate,8hook"it head with a dubious expression, when Stark first came on board. The Waldmear had not been at sea a week before Captain Staik began to show himself as ho really was. Ho beat tbe men without provocation, and seemed to desire to make himself as disagreeable as" possible. We soon found that he bad laid in a great quantity of liquoi for his own ue, and this was by no means calcu- Utcd to make him kind or geotJanuuily. He ws never what could nwvnliy be termed drunk, but yet he was almost con stsntly under the inflianee ef liquor. He proved himseJf to be a good iejnn, and a fair navigatir, thougn wo were not h i in discovering that Mr. Wales waa far his superior in the latter respect. One dark night during tho mi l-watch, the captain came on deck and went to the - ' 'ii.. i . i. .a3L J wiicci. x uo iiars wa uian ciosa Hauled upon the larboard tack, though she had lioedom enough to carry a slack byw-Iioe. The first mate had the dock. 'Mr. Wales' said thh captain, 'call all hands to tack ship.' 'Why, sir,' returned the mate, much sur prised at his order, 'she lavs her coarse now. and ban nearly a point to spare.' (,ail all hands, I say,' exclaimed Stark, in a savage tone. But, at." urged Wales, 'there's DO ne-d.' 'Silenco, sir. Clnn a stonoer on that jaw of yours, or I'll level you . Call all nanus an I aUotit shin. Let tho atv whelps have something to do.' 1 he mnto stood whero tho light of the binunclo shone upon his face, and I could seo that bo was pale, and that his lips trem bled. Yot lie moved not to obey tbe or der ho had received. 'You won't, eh." hissod Slark, interpret ing tho mate's silence to suit himself. 'Take that, then. I'll see who commands here. As he spoke, ho sprang upon the? mate. and with ono blow of his massive fi-st he knocks him down. His next movomont was towards the forecastle companion-wav. where ho sang out for all hands to c -me on deck, and as soon as they wero all up, he returned to tho wheel, and having or- Jered his men to tako their station for tacking ship, he went down to his cabin. When he returned, he had evident drank again, and ho bore in his hands a pair of atari pistols. 'Now men,' ho shoutod, in tones that plainly showed that his tongue was thick from the effects of alcohol. 'I am going to exercise you. I want to see how vou can handlo a ship in the dark. Tho first man among you who disoboya, dies upon the spot. Mark that! Now ready about !' 3TIio men knew with whom they had to dealand tbey dared not disobey. They saw the demon captain standing in the light of the binnacle lamp, and thoy felt sura ho would shoot any one who showed signs of insubordination. The mato still lay upon the de'k insensible, but no one dared to go to his assistance. Tho bark was put about, and then she was put back again upon tho laiboar tack. Oy this time Mr. Wales had rocov ered and got upon his feet. Ap-ain the captain ordered the men to lack ship, an once raoro sho was put b tck upon hor ori ginal courso. 'There,' growled Stark, with a scowl o satisfaction, 'that is to pay you for grum bhng yesterday.' And then, without speaking to his male, ho turned and went below.' Cautiously the men gathered nbont M Wales, but bo was too much Rgitnted to pass any opinion npon what had occurred There was a largo dark spot just bolow his right temple, whero the iron hst had struck him, but he toM tho men that ho was t hurt, and, having told tho off watch that thev might go below, ho went to the hen coop and sat down. 2 bis affair produced a deep sensation upon tho crow, and more than ono man whispered the thought of giving Stark a hoist over the side; but had this boon gen erally agreed to, it ivotild have boon a hard plan to carry out, forme brutal captain a ways went nrrucil, ami ha had ins eyes open for danger. He know the feelings which the crew entertained towards hiui, and this seemed to make him exult tho more in his cruelty. Ho war in short one ofthosomen yoiy seldom met with who seem to tako a delight in tortsring their fellows; Hia nnturo was beastly, and bis former lifo had evidently beon of a stamp todevclope tho demon in him. lletweon the captain and the mato there passed no more words save such as were absolutely necessary in the pursuance of bu siness, until after the bark had entered the Indian ocean. Between those two men there was a deep sentod animosity, and heaven knows that on the mate's sido it was just. Stark knew that the men sympa thised with Wales, and he allowed no op portunity to pass without inflicting annoy ances upon tho cvew,s favorite officer. But things were soon to come to a climax. One bright morning whon tho bark was off St. Mary, tho southern capo of Mada gascar, Mr. Wales had command of the watch. Captain Stark caino up from his cabin and having stood hv tho wheel a few moments, ho turned towards his mate. 'Seems to me you'vo made poor logs this last three hours.' he said with an oath which we havo no desiro to trans cribe. 'The bark has made as good headway as usual,' returned Wales, in a tono made tremulous bv the emotions that moved him. 'Yon lie,' rejoined Stark with another oath. 'If you wero a gentleman, sir, T would take some notice of your insults; but I will not stoop to wranglo with a brute.' Mr. Wales spoke in a low hushed tone, and his faco was ashy pale. Ho was a slim, delicate man, or at least ho appeared so when compared with the giant captain; but his soul was stung now, and ho looked the brute in tho faco. Never before had wo scan the captain look so perfectly savage as ho d'l then. Tho blood even left his face, a phonomen i which no circumstance had over produced before in our sight. He gazed a full rain uto upon the mato, and then he turned and wont down to his cabin. After be had gone, Mr. Wales stood with his arms f hl ed across his breast and his eyes bent ni. oo the deek. 'What do yon think he means to dof whiapered Aa Rodger, the second mato 'I don't know,' calmly returned WIl will and as thy bagaa to pour in all vor our rail, Captain Stark can! npon his men to repel them. But not a man move to obey hi order. Tim pirate chieftain was the first to board us, and a bis eye rested np on Stsrk, he uttered s hout of triumph. 'Ho any do what he p' ns, bt I stand nis insults no longer.' 'And by the heaven, above me, the crew will rtand by you every man of them,' uttered Rogers. 'If he dares to lay a hand upon yon, we will tVen to him.' The mate grasp d Rodger hand, and as ho looked around up.n the crew, who ha 1 all moved on to that quarter deck, we could see that ho looked grateful. At this moment captain Stsrk returned, snd bore in his hands a pair of heavy pol ttaitBsto mounted pistols. Ho approach ed tbo mate and extended the butt of one ot the pistols. Here, take it.' he said. The blood had returne 1 to his face and his nerves wero steady. Instincitvly Mr. Wales took the phdol ana as no BM so, the captain drew a third from his pocket 'This,' he said, raising tht silver-mount ed pistol, 'is for you. And this,' he added, holding up tho other and cooking it, 'is for the first man who dares to interfete. Now go forward, Mr. Walos elear awav to the cathead , sir and I will give the word whou to fire. Either you or I must die. No man shall call nie'a brute in the piesent of my crew, and live. Uo sir you have an eqnal chanco with me.' Mr. Wales shuddered when he saw tho demon eye of Buffo Stark fixed upon him. Ho had a wife ami children in New York, and I kne v that lie thought about thorn then. He was no hand at using the hmm, wniie ne anew mat Btaric 'was a dead shot.' 'We al! saw that there war, murder in the captain's soul, Ho was determined to kill the mate, but be feared to lay himelf accused of the crime of premeditated murder in the presence of the whole crew. In caso the fearful duel took place, wa know that Wales was a dead man. 'Come. sir,are you going, or are you too much of a coward?' cried Stark. "I must leave a kwOMM for my wife and children, first,' said Wales. 'Then hurry about it,' rejoined tbo cap tain, with a look of fiendish exultation. Wales had j'.nt turned towards Rogers, but beforo ha could speak, one of tho men who stood in tho larboard gangwav, re ported that a sail had jut hove in sight around the cape. Sho was a brigantino, : courso. and not more than fio miles dVtnnt. ' Captain Stark hurried to iho binnacle an i r - M ... . . ny my sou? s salvation,' ho cried turn ing to bis men, 'here's the traitor. At bun !' Stark leaped back and firl his ni.r bat oue of tho pirates who had at that ii- here 'taut gsmed the shattered taffrait, knock ed the weapon up with his sword and tha ball did no dunsgi. The battle w only between Stark an I thr- pirate, not another man of the bark's crew interfered.

'He was tho captain,' answered Mr. Wales, pointing to where tho exhausted man lay bound. 'And who is next in cornr.and?' 'I am,' said the mate. 'You don't seem to exert yourselves much in defending your vessel f lioesnse it would be useless. You are are the most powerful.' 'Do you know that man?" continued the pirato. pointing to Stark. 'Only that he is a trutal cowardly vil lain,' returned Wales, Tbo buccaneer smiled, and then turned towards his men. who stood in a body np on the quarter deck. There was a consul tation of a few moments, and then ths chief turned once more to our mate. 'Wo bad intended to rob you.' be said. 'and we mean to rob yon ns it is; but we will only rob you of your captain, for we would rather possess him at this moment than all tbe wealth there is on this ocean. Ho was once a pirate with ns ha was second in cominan 1 of that brigantino and for a sum of money paid him bv an English agent at Calcutta, he betrayed us. Ho did it partly out of revenge becau?e ho could not be captain. But wo escaped from the trap he laid. He wont escape so easily. You, may think yourselves lucky to go scotfreo with your cargo, and get rid of a villain at the "same time.' Mr. Wales made no answer, and thepi late turned to his men and ordered tbem to carry Stark on Iward the brigantine. In ten minutes afterwards tho pirato was clear of us, and wo were standing on our Ero long we saw a dark mass run np at the brinrAntinu's f i-.n--o ' an1 . . f , ... . . - - & v ... j n 1 1 v i mcic got iiis glass, ana no gazed throngh it lor hung dangling in the air.

Lay tho yards square, and get up tho stud'n'ls on both sides." Stark stood by tho wheel while he gave these orders, and he showed tho ngony which he felt. Tho wind was from the north west, and tho brigantino was nearly dead to windward. Tho bark was scon flying off to the south'rd snd east'rd with tho wind dead aft, and tha brigantino bad gtrsn chase. As 1 remarked at first, tho bark was not a fast sailor, and it was soon evident that tho brigantine was rapidly gaining. Stark walked up and down tbe quarter leck with quick, nervous strides, and great drops of prespiration gathering upon us brow, the crew were lost in wonder at his behaviour. We had reasou to sup pose that our chaser was a pirate, but we could not conceive how that brutal man could bo so much moved by the circum- tance. In less than an hour the brigantino fired one ot hor bow-cliasscrs, and tho ball struck tho water under our larboard quar ter, throwing the spray all ovor our deck. 'We might as well heave to, said Mr. McWane, our supercargo, who hail been somlimo watching tho pirate, tor such wo now knew her to be. 'She may siuk us if she pleases." 'Then let her sink us,' uttered Stark. 'But I am not so fond of being sunk,' persisted the supercargo. 'if we beavo to and let him come up he may show us some quarter. Of courso we cannot run away irom him.' 'I will heave tc, whon I think necessary,' resumed tho captain, in a tono w hich plainly indicated that he would bear no more. Another shot came from the brigantine, and this time it came crashing through the stern, tearing off part of tho taffrail, aud severely wounding ono of tho men at the wheel; but the captain noticed it not. He only looked aloft to soo if every thing was drawing, and then resumed his walk. 'Captain Stark,' said the 'will you dowso tbe stud'n'ls, bark to?' McWane v9 a young msn, was a bold, firm raao, and the stopped.
