The attention of All the was by this order directed to the advancing ship and upon looking around again for Lac first object of barrel of it had most mysteriously there was a Rumor current throughout the ship during the Day that the barrel had neen seen on ils Way to the Captain s store room but an extra Glass of common ship s whiskey Given ostensibly in or of the fourth but in reality a Jack suggested by Way of comm nution for his share of the prize was All Hal was Ever heard of that cask of Well seasoned hol lands. The stranger having backed his niacin Topsail under our Lee Quarter announced in answer to our Hail that he was in Hundred Ami ten Days from Sidney in new South ant that the Day before he had been boarded ing at it u Little nearer.

On of the Quarter Boals was Al once lowered away in Mcd my the first lieutenant placing himself in the Stern slice pushed off and was soon on Gonril the stranger. We had nothing to do but to await his return. In the meantime speculation was Rife As to inc Circum slain of tin piracy and the probable where Abo tits of the Frue Hooters. J Tim report of the lieutenant upon his return was to the effect tha k English j Man Haj been boarded Early in the fore j noon of the d to before by a Boa from a Clipper built Brig after been summoned to Linave to by a shot from n Long gun amidships. The Brig showed no hag hut appeared to be w. Wilh a Spanish looking set of Fellows in red 1 Caps and Blue Woltch shirts mud it Addi i lion to the Lisl Gnu she carried Elliree or four Tades on a Side. Upon coming on Board the boats Crew at once set about plundering the ship apparently seeking Only such articles As they could use on the Brig. In i ice the optic or of the boat announced in pol test manner and in broken Lolo the Lemiiux Passen Gers and Crew that his Craft was merely Short of sea a lords and lie should simply help himself to such things As he blood in need of. How much of Elliis for he Nince was due to the Lac that he knew there hardly i possibility of there be ing any specie on Board and thai the ear i go wits Bulky and of but Lille value it is impossible to say.

A Long passage Hail already great la re j thied the Stock of provi Sions and the pirate s exaction left him Wilh barely ten Days Supply a Vii after putting All hands upon the Possi ble allowance. It was this Iha made him so anxious to speak us.

Is of a Call showed i sell Lite rest of the Day although some iwo Hundred pairs of Eves were Kepi on the a Leleh and provoking enough it was when ton dead certainly there was a pirate within a Hundred Miles of us. The next Mornini however we were gratified with the sight of a set give it up so and with every thing set alow and aloft and Bowlins hauled taut we commenced a regular Chaco. At length we got cur enough to Semi a shot dancing along on die water ahead of him when he at once put his Helm up and came Down under our Stern she proved to to a Beautiful i or tvs Giese look Bijj Craft with tokens of inc slaver in every line of her finely moulded Hull and in the spread of her Square Yards and taunt Lap ring top masts. However we had nothing to say in her or her business and she h. seen nothing of the pirate we filled away for upon the suggestion of the first 1 Luff. Who says hut thai. The fellow has gone into is close by and As he appears to have been Short of grub he has perhaps put in there for potatoes and onions. As to the onions i m Sura he could do but or for the Fayal onions Are almost equal to those of Madeira and the Madeira onions Are a Motis the world we came to Anchor in the Road Stead of Orta. Amid a Fleet of Yankee whale ships who were laying in their stores of vege tables am fruits but no pirate was to be seen. Ortii with its White washed buildings looks pleasant enough from the sea but As. Soon As Yon set foot on Short Yon Siml yourself in a Little filthy dilapidated town. The streets perhaps Are not so disgustingly dirty As those of new York but they Are very narrow and the houses Are old and mean. On the opposite Side of the Road Stead Risos the Beautiful Peak of Pico us tap covered with Snow and enveloped in fantastic and Ever varying Clouds and with its Steep sides clothed with vineyards from whence come the i Ico wine of the new York Market. There was no pirate Bill the first Luff had promised then were plenty of onions mild As new milk am big a your of which Wilh Oiler fruits we Laid in ii Good store inasmuch As it was whispered that we were going to run by Madeira without slopping it Funchal until our return.

The caverns of Ilion a precipitous rocks it Are said still to hold their inn Mylei remains. Mysterious people who. In is said revers ing the order of things allowed every woman two or More husbands.

My reflections were Cut Short by the rattle of the Chain Cable As the Anchor dropped from the. Hows. A boat was soon alongside with several dark looking officials in Dingy Gold hire who proved Loho health Oili cers. Paul Bijur was at Onee granted and we had permission to communicate Wilh the Sli orc.

Of All Lac modes of annoying a quiet Voy Ngor including Customhouse regulations passports there is nothing 10 equal the , useless and barbarous quarantine Laws of about Hall Lac ports in Lac Globe. Our Anchor was hardly Down Anil Pra Tique obtained when the boat was ordered to lie manned. It was decidedly uncommon and rtt dig for the skipper to hurry ashore in the first boat and a Good Deal of conjecture was wasted As to what the old fellow had in his Eye. The most reasonable supposition was Hal he walled to get the weather Gunge of his middies Wilh the Black eyed senoritas of Santa supposition that gained in strength when it was found that the first lieutenant had so much work for the men that no boat could go ashore for two or three hours. There wan evidently Collu Sion Between the two oldest officers of the ship. In about in hour s time a Large boat with to or three soldiers in tic Bow and a couple of officers in the Stern sheets came along Side. Upon being piped Over with All honors the elder of the two offi cers advanced to the first lieutenant and presented to him a note.

Am thus was explained the reason of his hurry gel in Hore. Before anything Scmid leak out a id Imp knowledge that a piracy had been committed. 1 Pou Landing he had at once an audience Wilh the governor i neral and communicated to him his suspicions of the Brig which j had come a Anchor the evening before Ami which had had no with the Shore.
