The old "Flyaway," ' ship of some eight huudred tons lay at Trieste, where she had put in for a load of oil, almonds and wine.

Jack Provost and myself were walking up and tiowu the larboard ide of the waist ou the seeond afternoon of cur arrival at Trieste. . Our ship had a staall topgallant forecastle, and .beneath Jay a young sailor in irons. His name was Ben Green. He was uot over 20 years of age, and, One of the best-hearted, truest men .on board. When the. ship was coming in, he and the captain hii a "spit." Ben was stationed at ' the firctopsail halyards by tbe first mate sj.nd" was. told not to leave until the yard 'was down. "The captain saw him there, ' and ordered him to go and stand by 'the main brace. ' ".' ' ,! ';'''' "I'm r stationed here," returned Ben, meaning no harm, and thinking none. ' ; t " 'O you are,, eh? now g!" 'Aud ie gate"iHira a'kick1, iS her spoe. c ,! 'r ,! ' ' In' ' a moment of paiu acd raj? poor Ben uttered; "You're a brute.'' ' ;" , "At that instant the pilot ordered the courses to bs cleared up, and the captain smothered his vengeance. : But as soon as tho anchors were down, he ordered the mates to put Ben ia double irons. : "And said he in conclusion, "we'll give him just the sweetest taste of the cat o'niue tisite wheri he ' comes out that ever he dreamed of." So Ben had been pnt in irons; and there he lay. We knew that the captain would keep his promise, for he wf.s t man ivhom persuasion never moved. It is to bad," said Jack, looking first uPon 13cn' std a of gratings, and then looking r. me. 'So;' it is;" I: returned, "and if any ex ertion on my " part could help the poor fellow. I'd msi it. But Captaw' San ders i3 not the man to be turned from his purpose. : If he said he'll f.og Ee'rt G-rn, Ben may -consider himself doonrsd."- "I know," respended Jack thoug! ly,' '"but 1 have been thinking of soVae thing." ' ' '- ' ' "6Ell'"": . :'' ''',,' "i " 1 '' ..:::.;' -'"Yea, "-'he said, ' "You know Sander is very superstitious." " '-' ' ' ' "Most men of his character arc,"1 1 ro-plied.,:- 1! : "-' -' ' ; "But he is more so than any man I ever saw before," resumed Jack in a low tone. "Ho would sooner go without his grog for a 'Trhole' year than to have a storm petrel killed by a man on bord his ship. No power conld induce him to go to sea on a day when the moon could be seen While' the 7 sun is up. . I know him well,- and I think if I could get on shore this afternoon, while the captain. is there, I could prevent Ben's flogging." v ; "As soon as Jack had whispered to me somewhat' 'of his plan, I went at once to the mate and told him that I wished Jack Provost to go on shore with me. He hes itated a moment, and then gave me per mission t6 take him along. 1 Jack had been in Trieste, twice be fore with Sanders," and he- 'knew all its haunts. .v,.. - :. Our fir.-t movement was to the shop of ait'old Jack,' who kept masquerade cos tumes of every style, shade cut and finish ; from the full dress of a. 'Mogul grandee to the habit of an Indian peasant. - Jack selected a pair of deep blue Turkish trow sers',; which buckled about the ankle with a plated band, a r6pe"of purple silk mys teriously figured over with all sorts of ca balistic, characters, done with silver thread; then he selected a wig of flowing , white hair,.-with an enoriiionsl beard to match; and having, procured , some water colors, he mad me lav on a few false wrinkles and odd veins;" ' Next came a hat with a tall crown,'-like a pyramid figured with silver. cr, and a riin very wide and stiff. A f - nW'tlds he st'crmed into a nafr of w(od- tcr nnnrl h.tn a. rihfr:.f ir.wi.i. i eh shoes -and his disguise was com- ri plete." "' '; ' : ':';" ' ' "' ' ": . 'Most assuredly I should not have known Jack Pi ovbst nivder that guise, nor Would his own mother have dreamed that he was her'sori.r ;-'' ' :- -''' ; ; " Yo'.t must disguise, so as to go and see the sport' ?ail?Jaek. ' -- :- i I'ipiickly' consented, for I did not want the captain to know, his .supercargo that afternoon. I selected a peasant's dress; browned my skin with umber: put on false hair and was ready. Jack borrowed a very large parchment book, written iu Hebrew, and thus accoutred, we set out,, leaving our own clothes and ten dollars as a pledge for our safe return. " ? t .We fouud Captain Sanders at the cafe,' where Jack said we should, and very for tunately, he was at a small table alone, with a glass in his hand. . Jack walked slowly and totteriugly towards him, and sat down on the opposite side of the same table, and having rested the end of his huge book upon the marble top, he opened the volume, being careful to hold Jt. so that SandeM could look into it. .The captain did look into it, and when he-jaw the strange char eters there, he was puz zled. The old astrologer for bo we must call Jack -bowed his head upon his hand, and at the end of some moments he started up and. uttered: .1 . . "Americano.. America's son is here!" r-;5rfklr.g iu t. most, mystical idiom. In a mome:i's more ha fastened his eyes upon Sanders, fu.d added "J'nrdon!" Ifeltvour ee.' Tl.r, ., foi ta. That was the day of your nativity." (Ji'ek knew that the captain wa3 born on the fourtsenth day of January.) Sanders was astoaisbed, and his lips trembled.' . . . . t '.' '..' "Yours has been a dark tempestuous life!" resumed the astrologer, solemnly, closing hi book, and turning, the globe upon its r.xis. .. "iSrojair children lie bu ried in your nuUvc liad. " . A wife now " IVhatS" grasped the captain, turning deadly pale, and trembling. . "She wails for you, and prays!" Sanders breathed more freely. . "Shall I tell you more?" . ; : . " :. ."No ye yes!',',, V .'" .'(.All is not darkyou. have seen much joy. But a cloud comes- a most strange and curious one. I can read it. not! from thij," setting the. globevaside, and -taking up the book. '.' . "?"hnt is it?" whispered Sanders, while Jack pored over this strange book in si lence. . ... -,' - . "Thij is pissing all belief, uttered the astrologer to himself, etill reading from the cabfvli3tic characters cf the book. "There is a torture but it is not for him! . 'Tis for another and yet he dies! Wonderful;" . And thus speaking, the strange man gaaed Ixedly into the captain's face.,;',' "What is it? ' hoarsely whispered the anxious,, finpcrstliiotu raan.' . "You .ars Vs commander of , a' ship," said the astrologer.' " ' "; Yes." : t ; '. 'r - ' ; "Is there any oiie suffering there?" , "No!". ' , ';; ; '; . : . " "Then' tlicie will be !'TwilI not be you aud yet ycu will be the victim, for so it is written!" , , i . ' ' '' " But tell all! What do jou sec? What do ybu read?" . "Thus I read, answered the astrologer, in a voico that Beeta?d to conie from the vaults beneath the house. There shall be the sound of woe an4 wailing, as of one iu distress. A Jash shall make sharp mu sic in the. air, and the "waiting flesh shall quiver when, it receives the stroke.1' The blows fall thick and heavy, arid, the suffer ing one shall bow in shame and grief. His pain of flesh shall" hot. equal his pain of soul. But yet I read that you arc" not the sufferer and yet, snclr shall" bc' the scene' when you die! That is what ' I hold so Wondrous strange! And my record never yet deceived . me! Surely, sir, you must be connected with this in some way!" ' "With what? How?" gasped the cap tain. .; , '-''', ; V "With this scene I have described. '.
