Thoy know tliatthoy woro to tbo nortbward of Moro ton bay, a purliou of tho sottleniunts of thc Eng lisb Crown, and thoy dotonninod to mako for that placo. Accordingly, having workod with tho'rno.st dcsporato indnstry until four o'clork on Sundny, tboy qnittctl tbo vcssel and took to tbo boats?. Tbo ship's carpontcr, Ttho cook, tbo cook's matc,.T.

Four ibiyB after tboy oommittcd tbcinsalves to tbo carc of I'ros idoufc, Mrs. Frazor was dclivercd of a rhild, whilo up to hor waist in wator, in tbo long boat. Tbo inl'ant was born alive, but aftcra fow grasps was h t)Wiioil,and tho ohiof mato wrnppcd ti) tbo body in a part of bia sbirt, wbicb bo toro from his back for tbo purposo, and lut it go along with tbo tide.

I'ho Cnptain's aim was, all along, nftor thcy iinit noon otuigcil to ciuit thc shm.to rcacb JMoro ton Bay, but fliiding that tbo wind and curront wcro dead against bis objcct,and bis companions beuig reduced to tfie extrcnnty of ryinir on tboir backs in tbo boat with thcir tongucs out to catcb tbo dcws that fcll, bo resolvcd to mako for tho Jicarcst land.

Thc moincnt thcy laid tbo boat on the ground, thcy bcgan to strip the the tncii of thcir clothes, commcncing with tho captain and ciiicflccrs.
