iU^itnouey io this world,' having obtained the
epjbttafcnf tho herrs in 'fle w York, fitted ont a
Targe yacht, and promising money only on
Otiadaumi ctf success. I was prompte?1. to haz?
ard the-epec-it agrt ed with my adventeroas
naapasjj i ian, and ITalgned ar iolea andahipped
: myself. After a great deal of trouble we
picked up another diver, a coane, brutal,
?unken' rase?d, wheeo eoDduet as hereafter
S>jri" wiU iirffieicTitly justify these remarks.
Troa the beginning I bad a kmd of antipathy
against the fellow, and abmnk from his aoci- '
:?tya?fromaomeloaibscfflioriptile. His pro?
file wa* that of a baboon; his eyes, peering
from under bis heavy brows, twinkled with a
eat anio wickedness and seemed to be looking !
all ways at once; and when- be laughed, his
Bat anio majes'y might have envied his ugly
gnn. Hy employer shunned him, and would
glad ly b ave parted with bim, bot no other could
be tot to engage in such a foolhardy scheme.
Hiving go t, the diving-bell ?nd other appa?
ratus on board, we at last set sail on this
novel pnrsmi or lucre. Tbe voyage was fine, j
?nd bavjntr nothing to do X enjoyed it very
much, "and was even softening toward my;
fe&w-drrcr when wo reached that part of tbe
' osant of Florida -where tbe sudden wreck lay,
- and where our fortunes were buried beneath j
ttte waves. .. \ I
We were a considerable time In -disco ver ins
the wreck, but we found it at last, far down
in the -depths of the still blue sea, where i
' troope of Sharks were pursuing each other
shoot sod through it for want of batter pray.
Ho pleasant aight, loan assure yon. My fol?
io w-di vex gave them s fearful curae. and took
aa extra long pull at his brandy-flask. As for
nrrywitf, the sffa'r seemed more dangerous than
ever. The vessel would have to be moored above
a bed of mite, and if a storm were to ari se, ill
fate would catch US, for there ia little mercy
to be expected for a ship from the cm el and
jagged coral. However, I plucked op tbe
very best heart, saying to myself, "My dear
fallow, the more danger the more money."
Jun dow-that was my diver's name-gave
ttUennee to s nowise pleasant oath, abont
haring been swindled, muttering at the end,
"But TH pay them off deuced sharp, or I'm
.not--," concluding hm sentence very suspici?
ously, which did not tend to increase my
confidence respecting his intentions.
We pulled bi ok to the ship, after planing s
buoy to mark the spot. The next two days
Jim Crow and I were bony in preparing our
things for the attack on the Bunkun ship.
The tide of my thoughts was checked by my
work, bot I still noticed that Crow was m an
evil mood. After abont four days were spent,
"the ship was. anchored. The bell was Bwong
for the prange, and Crow and I weat below
and dressed. My suspicions seemed now on j
the increase, ana my readers may think that
_I.was very fearful, but I provided myself with I
s long and sharp KL i Te, which I stuck unob?
served down my long leathern boot. Grow I
stock ono in bia belt, saying, with a rather
diabolical laugh, "I' think it ia better being j
prep ired for water shari a," and I almost
think be added "land sharks." This opened
my ?'. eyes a httle, and some rather enri?os
speculations flitted through my brain. He)
was s man to be feared, being hugely big and
strong, and wicked withal.
With many such reflections I took my place
in the bell, and amidst the hurrahs of the
crew and the excitement of the master, we I
.. dipped m to the sea. Common life has passed
' arny, and, to a novice, s new world opens to
his eyes beneath the wave, and even to me
the scene was fresh. The coral reefs, Uko
grand architectural atrnotnrea, covered with
weeda sod shells of the deep, of every possible
variety of color; the flab, large and email,
darting about tiri water, and flying at the
approach of the bell as before the sweep of tho
ahkrkd, aod.even they grinned with their long
jaws, and fled upon our approach. Down,
down, down, till the light was dim, and 'ben
we Strock the wreck. Armed with crowbars.
Sharp st one end to repulso the sharks and
other monsters of the deep, we planted our I
?feet on the bell. Instantly we separated;
Crow bunt opeo the cabin door, and after s
while I joined him. By this time he was in
the cabin searching about. I watched him as I
. weU as 1 could ?J1 tbe while. Thoa we spent j
our Ant journey, and after lading onr bell, I
gave the signal, and were hauled up on deck, j
"The nailon crowded round us, gloating over
Ute various thing wo had brought ap- they I
sao b?uled on deck several tbiogs to wbiou
we had attached ropes. Thus our bret day
passed. All were exalting, and tbe sailors
cracked over tbe galley fire the possible prize
of money to each, and tbe master dreamt of a
Betnral days thoa passed over; we had
brokeifinto tbe cargo, and what we consid?
ered of vii ue and tbe asa bad not damaged
was hauled on deck, and the schooner became
petty well laden. I thick it was about tbe
last day of workingA.a8 we wwe down in the
bell, lb at Oro waga in wended bis way to warde
tbe cabin. By this time my BUBPICIODS regard?
ing his, evil intentions were quieted, yet tb;re
?j still lingered shoot him traces of obstinate
Bulkiness, so that I took very little -notice of
bia op?rations, and busied myself about differ?
ent things in tbe hold of the vessel.
I think about half an hour must have passed
hy when I retuned to tbe boil, and I WSB
startled by the cunning wicked cast of Crow's
OQontenance; be was shuffling something
, -.g2??h his diver's clothes; asjhe last of it
disappe .red I guessed it was 1 hag, and the
thought flashed across my mind-a bag of I
money. I quietly asked Crow what it was"
"Humph ! nothing. What have yt- to do
with it?" be growled.
J?V curiosity was further aroused by this I
'"well, you must loll me what it is.J I said
keeping myself as quiet as possible. ' I
"The devil I will I" heshouted, savagely. I
"Then you shall Deforced when we get on I
deck" I replied, resolutely,
j "Hal ha I forced !" Here he quietly drew a I
Qmok as thoueht mine was ont, too, for I
always carried it in my boot.
.?I ?usoeoted something of this," I said,
scowled heavily at me on the other side of
Mid.0* yo? moat tell me what that is,"d |
. Brit, nothing daunted, the ruffian cried, "I
will eoe yon dead first."
I knew his mighty strength, bnt I also knew
my own seiltty and skill.
Crow said again, *! 'lia a bag of gold I found
tn the cabin, and if yon hold your jaw I shall
give ye a third."
"Never shall I be dishonest," I said, after
some deliberation, looking pale, I dare say,
but perfectly calm. ,
Let the reader imagine the Boene m a bell
forty feet underwater. It would take at least
twenty min?tes to pull it up. A fierce fight,
perhaps a deadly one, might be finished by
then. Suspicion might be hushed; the body
could be flung to the ravenous sharks with
which which we sometimes had lo combat with
our sharp-pointed crowbars; but our frightfulr
gloomy appearance might have been enough
to terrify the inhabitants of the deep.
We etood eyeing eaoh other for some time
he foi attack, I for resistance. I offered to
pull the alarm-bull, but he clutched it from
me. I attempted nothing further.
After a few 'minutes' pause, he said, "Will
you take shares ?" ?
'.No," was the firm answer.
'.Perhaps it is not large enough ?"
"All of it ia too small."
"Ton wont give io ?" he said.
I expected something and prepared myself.
"Never I" I rephed, at length. .
"Then to death 1" he yelled springing at me.
Quick as thought I caught his elevated arm,
poised in the air. for a stab. I made a lunge
at him, for my blood was roused at this fiend?
ish attempt on my life. He parried it, bnt it
caught him on the shoulder; however, he
clntcbed at my wrist, and there we were scowl?
ing . at eaoh other; the foam boret from bis
bloodless lips, and his passion-wrought face
intimidated *me more than bis bloodthirsty
At last he made a forcible effocfc to free bia
arm, bnt I held it with all the strength of des?
peration. Amid oatha and curses he strug?
gled. Some times be was quiet, and the only
sound was the bumed panting of orr excited
ches te. At last I wrenched my batid from bis,
and stabbed him in the hand. His knife fell,
but with a ourse that rings yet in my ear he
threw himself at me and grasped my body and
arm io bis gigaatio olasp. I seized him by
the throat. With the hug of a bear be tried
to break my back; his strength seemed almost
superhuman, but shitting off the bars of wood
by a wriggle, we plunged into the sea beneath.
Down, down we sank I No effort was made to
lose tbe bold of either. Tighter and tighter
we gripped, till we fell oe the oorai reef. Death
itielf-seemed to me a trifle. Passion and bate
seemed but the consummation of my heart.
My strength was that of Hercules, under the
influence of this demoniacal conflict. But
want of air stifled our efforts. As the fires
began to flash before my eyes, and the disc of
unconsciousness to creep over me, I released
my hold. Crow also loosened his. I know
little about this part; but being an excellent
swimmer, I a track out wi th.aU my force. The
water whizzed by me. I was stifling, choking,
dying. When I reached the surface, with a
gasn of air I recovered, and was enabled to
shriek, "Help, help I" when I fainted away.
As a dream, floated before me-men, ropes,
boat and rescue.
I awoke; but tho pain and dizziness and
confusion in my head defy all description.
After a few bonn I contd rise, but still I was
feeble. 1 inquired for Crow; he waa in* a de?
lirium. They told me, when the bell waa
brought, be lay on tba bars as dead, grasping
tho gold bag with both his hands. They a so
told me that they had rescued me from a
shark hovering near the schooner.
Next day wa set sail, and arrived not long
after in Now York. Two hundred pounds was
my fee, bnt the master gare me fifty more for
my honest resistance. Crow was still bad in
his head. They pnt him into a hospital. I
callid throe months arter, and he bad cone to
