The englishman s exploit j and How much he made by it. By al Taxon Cobb or. Many Yean ago whoa we were a mete boy we used to it upon a Low Stool at the feet of Commodore Samuel Tucker and hear that old Veteran relate the incidents that had come under his own observation daring the late straggle with great Britian. Among the thousand and one stones thai we have heard fall from the Lipa of that Ocean Warrior the following has remained fresh in our memory. On the Western Shore of Penobscot Bay Between Belfast and Camden there was a Small club of fishermen s cots inhabited by a Hardy set of men who had irom in fancy been brought up amid the music of the breaking Waves and who knew no fear beneath the Power of mortal Man. Fine most among Ibee children of the sea and occupying the station of ruler among them was a Middle aged Man named i Enoch Nightingale or. As he we generally ? called Captain Nightingale and never was there a Man better titled by nature for the Post a held by general Convent Man he Vul powerful and athletic in i phys ical Mould bold and fearless As the Ursi Monarch and Frank and Generou in i Octal relation he was beloved by All who knew him. Lie was a Joller fellow too and often a i Small Grey Jeri twinkled in their merry mood a Clu of observer Nii it have see that a keep love of practical joking liked m their gloaming depth. At the time of which we writ the Taihei Ines dare not venture far out for a doer blockade was kept up along lie coast Ami of they were forced to forego the advantage of their beet i Ehing ground. Bat a new idea bad been taking to aerion of their brain and they had thought of fitting out a Privateer against the in Glieth. For two weak bad tie matter been talked Over lid All the arms necessary to personal War fare had been procured but no vessel suit al the for the Enterprise could be obtained nor could they raise guns heavy enough of her use even had they possessed the ves Sel. 01 pistol and Cut Laues they Hai enough and that waa All unless we add on old Sii Pounder which served a a kind o signal gun in cases of heavy fogs am Stormy Righta. It was just at Nightfall that Obed Nightingale s Shallop Obed was the old Raan i son came up the Bay and As the Young Man came on Shore he reported thai there was an English Topsail Schooner a clean Clipper built Craft laying Oil and on be tween Monhegan and the ledges. Shu was heavily armed and seemed to play about in the water a though her heels were made for running. Now rpm. Enoch Nightingale Hal mid vory Little about the various projects that had been aet on foot with regard to the Privateering expedition but he had thought u Good Deal and As soon As Bis son communicated the above intelligence his thoughts came to a focus. A plan of operation was clearly marked out in Hia mind and to at once sat about the work of putting it into direct. The Man who stood second to capt. Nightingale mate was Jabe Haskins. " Jabe said the Captain do Yon know there is a British Clipper just outside 1" 14 Well a Postl we go and take her take that englishmen we new " but i m in Earnest. Jabe looked at Nightingale with Tho utmost astonishment. " i can go of in my Little Zlody an take her before she knows where she is. Now will Yon help me i la Foller yer Captain of you go Tew Thunder was Jabe s Hearty response As he saw the old Man was in Earnest. Capt. Nightingale took his mate by the Arm and led him Ott. The night was dark but till there was a Busy scene on Board the Schooner Rhody which was the heaviest fishing vessel in the place. Torches wore gleaming to and fro All night Long Ham Iners arid saws were sending Forth their music and when the morning dawned the Rhody we ready for sea the old Iron signal Gen was hoisted on Board and placed on a rude tort of Carriage amidships the Compline buckets and bait boxes had been cleared away and take her All in All she bore some Fain resemblance to an embryo pirate or Privateer. She was managed by twelve Mon of whom Jabe Haskins took command. The people wondered where Cape. Nightingale was but Jab set their hearts at rest by telling them he would get outside As soon As the Schooner did. In an hour after Daylight the Rhody Hove tip her Anchor and made sail and in less than five hours she poked her Blunt nose into the Waters of the Blue Atlantic. Shortly after the Schooner had passed White head Light the englishman was made out about two Miles Distant to the South re and West re just Olf the ledge and hauling his sheets al Jabe brought his vessel up to the sheets wind which was fresh from the North re and East re and stood Oft to wards the utter Point. This looked like trying to run away at least so the English Man thought and consequently the clip per was immediately put in full Chase and though she was somewhat to the Leeward still it was evident that she would not to Long in overhauling that Yankee. About our o clock a the afternoon the englishman came utmost within hailing Dis Tance and fired a gun. As the shot came whizzing Over the Fisherman s deck Jabe Haskins at once Hove of and Ero Long the Clipper came up. " Schooner ahoy v " Mellow returned Jabo. " do you surrender " Wal of you want to take a. I s Poso i can t help the Clipper Hove in her fore Topsail to the Mast and lowered a boat and in some five minutes afterwards Hor commander followed by fifteen men came Over the Yankee s Side. The first object that met his gaze As he stepped upon deck was the Small gun amidships and though he thought of an american pirate made him feel sore yet he could not help laughing at the almost ridiculous scene thus presented to his gaze. The twelve Green looking fishermen together with that gun did present rather a Ludi Crous appearance. " so you Are on a piratical expedition 1" hauntingly remarked the British officer. " i Dono returned Jabe with an offended a u i Spose if i d Como across Oue of your efts at i could have took i should have done it but Dono As should a been Pira Piug Anne Mure u Yeou Are u How Many men have you got to " Here s twelve on us an of Yeou be got twelve men at Ken lick us i d like to see pm ? never mind that Jonathan. Well take you into Halifax and there perhaps you will find your the Schooner was searched fore and aft but All that could to found were a dozen old pianola and about As Many swords which were in the Cabin while in the bold they discovered nothing but an array of empty boxes and barrel. The englishman loll twelve of i own men to take charge of the Prie and look in of Tho prisoners on Ike us his own vessel leaving the other six under the charge of the officer who had been appointed to the command of the Thody and gave order that the Schooner hould be kept Cloee in Hia Wake during the night u he iut and
