There was a stiff breeze, and the noble craft went buovantlv bounding alons m the Dark Billows. Captain Transom a square built navigator, with bushy wniskers, and a frank manly face, in which a qnick tem per and a thorougly good-natured dispo sition at times fought for the mastery; the sudden glow in the keen grey eye being contra'dicted by the smile on a firm, yet handsome mouth was valking to and fro on his quarter-deck, while a broad-chested hirsute seaman was at the wheel, and oc casionally exchanging roinarks with the junior mate, a remarkably fine young fel low of about two and'twenty, previous to the changing of the watch, and hisi going below to snatch a few hours sleep,after the first anxieties attending on "tho eommenc ing'the voyage were over. "Mr, Freeman " said the captain. "Ay, ay, ur 1" replied the young mate. - Vlf the wind shifts a little souh'ard sir, you'll close haul her a conplo of points ; the peggy goes well under a good luff. And, d'ye hear V "Yes sir." 'Furl top -gallant-sails if it freshens," continued Captain Transom, casting a sea man's glance to windward, "and gie a drag to the fore-an' main weather-braces. As ole Jack Martingil takes his drick at the wheel, you'll do very well;" u Are we likely to speak au thing iir, do you think ?" asked Freeman. I expect, sir, that cursed picaroon will try to oerhaul us again, but he wont find we carry quakcrs tins lime." J.nd he amiled grimly ashe cast his eyes over the caiionades which formed the armament of the meichautman. "lie gave some troub le to us this last time did this hempen Don Pasco with his accuised crew." 4 We must not kug the shore too closely. "Not for your life, and the value of ship and cargo, keep a broad offing sir- If we are to meet, better in the heart of a gale with plenty of sea -room to handle the craft than near either key, or coa;t where they steal out like 'far-nil serpents on you." And with a few farther words, and a brief oider eheerily delivered' to the men, Captaia Transom descended the poop-ladder, entered his cabin to take a short re psst'and turn in. A bright clear afternoon, with the eve ning about to close in the suddeness and glorious effulgence of tropic night, the hhip continuing on her course like a thing of life and motion, rising and dipping her taper masts, and describing strange curves and arcs against the sky as the breeze rang through cord and canvass. "Hurrah, lads ! how' she pays ! We ghall soon see "Pill," if the wind blows and the craft goessoundiiig along likethis exclaimed one of the crew forward hitch ing his slacks and giving his quid a turn. 'What do you say to this b' ?' Say t retorted an old Salt, with a sar castic tone ilVhy, I &y this is in a nice sort of sea for a brceae to hold out aid never veer a point, while you makes a stretch fromMonle'go Bay'in he Bristol Channel.

"But you'll have to lbok out for squills Pcaa? telf yott!,y ' younger sailor, not discomfitted by the laugli of derision raised against him. 'She is a pulling foot now and no mistake and that's enough for me.' 'This breeze will freshen up before sev en bells continued Martingill, lilting his keen eyes windward ; and I shouldn't be surprised if we wer sailing under bare L pole before to-morrow noen. Better that than anchored in a calm, and hi oiling like a rasher in the sun The group in which. the veteran seaman was chief spokesman, consisted of some eight or ten. stalwart men gathered round the windlass, or seated on the bitts at the heel of the bowsprit, and partly concealed from their superiors aft, by the courses. They were evidently enjoying the pres ent moment of relaxation ; and tobacco juice and bluo cur'ing smoke, went to lee ward from quid jind Cuban leaf, nsed with true gusto. 'I say Jack, bo began a broad-should ered tar, taking tho blackened stump of a favorite pipe out of hi3 mouth, 'spin that yarn about the Spanish Don and the Pret ty Creole, as Master Paul yonder aft sav ed from the picaroons. I've heard it, but Jiggers and Reefpoint, ain't. '.Nor I nor I !' said three or four oth ers. 'Come, lads, side out there, and ouid Jack shall have my can to wet his whistle as he pays it out.' 'Why, 'taint so much to palaver about surely said Jack pushing back his broad brimmed panama hat. and thrusting his hands into his crisp grizzled locks, but still with a flattered air, like one to whom only au appropriate tribute has. been paid and who receives only his due without as sumptios beyond. Weil, well assented Martingill having resource to afresh quid ; since youjmust have it here goes. You see it consarns Master Paul att yonder smoking his cigar and having eye to see that everything draws, a fine lad he was and a fine man he's made. I larnt him to hand, reef and steer , how to knot and splice, how to hand in and furl, and fil out as neat a bunt as But well well ! this is on the wiong tack. 'It was last voyage, afore we had ship ped some of you lads here, as some of our lads had been hove down with the yalla fever, and as the Lively peggy "Was lying in Kingston Bay, and slowing away rum and sugar, for Bristol as there used to be a good deal of going to from the Governors house whose plantations, you know lay a couple or three leagues up the country. Well, Captain Transom had been hove down, too, and was there being doctered and nursed ; and prettier nurse than Miss Lotty Buldook (her lather you see, is a brother to our firm) you never could have met with She had large black eyes, teeth like ivory, olive cheeks, with the tint of a ruddy peach on them, and was as love ly a creature as ever set on fire the heart of a lively lad of 19, which our Paul was ; and so Paul, d'ye see who used to go daily on shorej and dine at the planter's house ell slap over head and ears in lore' 'with- her. l '' Kow, I had charge of the ship, and scared ever left her. Thereby along side of us, a low long midge of a"Mudian schsoner, with such a brace of tall raking spars stuck in her as I've scarcely ever seen afore or since, and with everything furled alow and aloft in such a taut fhip-sbape manner, as showed she was handled by a spark who thoroughly knew his work. ' ' 4 Well, this craft was jiist the"1 thing to catch a bailor's eye buoyant" and' shaped to a miracle, Jying low in the water, with deck all flush fore and aft, the seems paid in till they look inlaid with bony, and such a beam as could only carry on under the aire of canvass she could spread from clue to earing. She was a beamy, and iKynis ns. I had an opportunity of examining her well. , r The crew puzzled me lads, for I was alwas on the lookout, and never saw more than two or three sallow-looking chaps with long black hair lounging about the deck at any time. She was curiously moored, too, as if ready for a start at any moment ready to slip away with any tide ; and I confess mv 'snicions were aroused, and so I kept a sharp lookout, you may guess 'Aye, aye, let you alone for that re marked a tar commendinly. 'Well d'ye see continued the narrator, 'once or twice a boat passed us from the jetty, pulled by four bull-necked unhand some fellows, and one who looked like n dandified skipper in the siarn-sheets. He was an uncommon handsome ful.ow I must say young with a peaked beard and moustaches, and long blaok hair, and eyes I keen enough, but somehow not pleasaat to' look at. He was togged out too in tip top style gold-laced cap and braided jaeket, and altogether quite a don a dan dy dye see; but the fellow had a thor ough sailor's look about him Well V was the impatient incerjection. 'Carry on Well, oie day I happened to go up to the plantacion, 'stead of Master Paul there, and who should I see in slap-up-long-shore toggs quite the Spanish style but this here skipper, walking in the garden with the pretty Miss Lotty, under the veran dah, and whispering some soft nonsense' in her ears making love to ner thinks I myself in a moment.' 'How did you hit upon that old chap ? asked one of his mates with a peculiar grin. 'Why, you see, brothers' replied Mar tiigill, 'when a chap bends his head to a pretty girl's ear, and peeps into her face, and'has his arm around her waist, and she looks away, and plays with her opron and tee-hees, and giggles, and the like; I take it he is making love to her. What the thunder are you looking at to the loo'ard yonder V he added abruptly, seeipg one of the men casting a long anxious seaman's gaze in that direction. 'I thought I saw a sail, but its gone was the answer. Gone with the gull's wing that brought it I expect 'I ain't so sure of that returned the other gravely, 'but you go ahead with your yarn, we shall see and know quite soon enough.' 'Well, I makes it out in course," and Martingill lesumed his story, 'that this don, who, d'ye mind me, was something on sea what he was not on land was cut ting Paul Freeman Out, and says 1 to my self, Blessed if he shall 1 So I sees Paul an hour afterwards, and tells him all I had seen and all I thought 'That he may be cutting me out with Miss Lottie, old Jack says he, 'may be very true, andery easy, as I don't think sne cares much about me says Paul; 'but you must be mistaken as to his being cou sarned with the sea, or with the 'Mudian schooner lviua within the offing. He's a planter from Antigua, and his passage across is all he knows ot tho sea. lnat s what Paul said ; and I laughed, for I tho't I knew better, and as things afterwards turned out, hang me ttafwatn't just as I mapped it out -jr The rest of Maftigill's story, notte make it prolix, must be taken in a condensed form. h It seems thai Don Pasco had for some lime been a visitor at theJJBuldock planta tion, where th host hospitably Tecefved him', as he efSfali comers, and where Cap. Transom and Paml often met him pol ished, plausible man of the world, a plan ter who was in Jamacia on baainess, and' struck with the charms of the young girl, bad match. (coiCTiicuxi.)
