The following was told as an aetual fact by a sailor who solemnly affirmed he knew it to be so ; whatever else be was, he certainly most havo been a sailor of genius : We are on board a slave ship bound to the c^ast of Africa. I had my misgiving* nbout the business, and I believe others had them, too. We hai passed tfce Straits of Uibralter, and were lying off Barbary. one clear, bright evening, when it came my turn to Mke ?h" helm The ship was becalmed, and every thing around was as silent as the day after the deluge. The wide monutony of water varied only by the glancing? of the moon or the crest of tho waves, made me think the old fables of Neptune wero true ; and that Amphitrite and hcrFaiada wro sporting on the surface of the ocean, with diamonds in their hair. These fnncies were followed bv the thought of my wife, my children, and my home; and all were wildly eu ugh jumbied together in a de lict us state cf approaching flumber Sud denly I heard above my head a loud, deep, terrible voioo call out 44 Stand from Under. I started to my feet?it was a customary sig nal when anything was to be thrown from the shrouds, snd tnechanicnllv I sung out the usual answer, "Let go!" 'But nothing camo. I looked up in the shrouds?there was nothing there I searched the deck, and found that I was alone! I tried to think it was * dream ; but that sound, eo deep, so stern, so dread ful, rung in my ears like the bursting of a cannon In the morning, I told the crew what I had heard They laughed at me ; and were all <!ey Jong full of their jokoa about44 Dreaming Tom." One fellow among them was most un merciful in his raillery lie wf>? a swarthy, malignant looking Spaniard, whocarried mur der in his eyo and curses on his tongue ; a darii g and lordly man who boasted of crimo as if it gave him pre-ominenco among hi* fellows lie lacghed longest and loudest at my ftory. 44 A most uncivil ghost, Tom," raid he ; 44 when such chaps come to see me, I'll make 'cm show themselves; I 11 not be satisfied without seeing and feeling as well as hearing.'' Tho sailors all joirod with him ; and I, ashamed of my alarm, was glad to bo ei eot. The next night. Dick Burton took the helm. Dick had nerves like an ox, and sinews like a whale ; it was little he feared on earth or be neath it. Tho clock struck one. Dick was leaning his head on the helm, as he said, thinking nothing of me or my story, when that cwful voice again celled out from the shrouds, " Stand from under " Diok darted fjrward like an Indian arrow, which they say goes through And through a buffalo, and wings on its way as if it had not left death in the rear. It was an instant or more before h?? found presence of mind to call out44 Let go !" Again nothing was seen?nothing heard Ten nights in succession, at one o'clock, tho same unearthly sound rung through the air. making our stoutest sailors quail as if a bullet shot had gone through their brain? At last we grew pale when it was spokea ofi and the worst of us never went to sleep with out saying our prayers For myself, I would have been chained to the oar all my life, to have got out of that vessel But there we were in the vast solitude of the wean; and this invisible being was with us No one put a bold face on the matter, but Antonio the Span iard. lie laughed at our fears, and defied Satan himself to terrify him However. when I it came his turn at the helm, he refused to go, several time= under the pretense of illness he was excused from a duty, which all on board dreaded But at last tho captain or dered Antonio to receive a round uosen of lashes every night, untii he should consent to perform his share of the unwelcome office For awhile this was borne patiently ; but at length he called out, 44 I may as well one way as another. Give me over to the ghost!" Thut night Antonio kept watch on tho deck Few of tho crew slept ; for expectation and alarm had stretched our nerves upon the rack At 1 o'clook the voice called, " Stand from under !" 44 let go," screamod the Spaniard.? This was answered by a shriek of laughter, and such laughter, it ceemed as if the fiend ans wered each other from pole to pole, and the bass was howled in hell. Then came a sui den crash upon the deck, as if our masts and spars had fallen We all rushed to the spot, and there was a cold, stiff, gigantic corpse The Spaniard said it was thrown from the f-hrouda; and when he looked on it he ground his teeth like a madman. 411 know him." exclaimed he, '41 stabbed him within an hour's fail ot Cuba, and drank his b'ood for breakfast." Wo all stood aghast at the monster. Ia fear ful whi?pere we asked what sh 'ul 1 be done with tho body Finally we agreed that the terrible sight must be removed from us, and hidden in the depths of the sea Four of us attempted to raise it; but human strength wa = of no avail ?we might as well have tugged at Atius. There it lay, stiff, rigid, heavy, and us immovable as if it had formed part of the vessel. Tho Spaniard wa= furiou ; 44 let me lift him," said ne 441 lifted him once and can do it again I'll tsach him what it is to come and trouble me lie took the body round the waist and attempted to raise it Slowly and heavily the corpse raised it itself up; its ray less eyes opened ; its r:gid nrm stretched cut and clasped itsvictim in a olcse death grapple and rolling over tho sides of the ship. th<y tottered an instant over the waters?then with a plunge they sank together. Again thit laugh?that wild, shrieking laugh?was heard en the windi The sailors bowod their heads and put up their hands to shut out the appall ing sound I took the Lelin more than onco after ; bci ne nover again heard in tho shr?ud th'it thun dering sound, 44 Stand from Under. '' l4Symiiics' Hole"?Its Origin. Most of our roaderi have doubtless ^ecu al lusions to the theory of Cantaiu Syrnin cs, who maintained that the world is hollow, with an opening at tho poles.
