When the spaniards were driven fro i Jamaica Mey left behind them a number of slaves who bought Shel Ter in the mountains and defied the authorities. These bandits were nearly exterminated soon after he eur relish occupation Tut the remnant later grew to be powerful and greatly troubled the Colony. They were known As the maroons and the Sto Ries of their desperate struggles for Freedom of the privileges from the Whites and of their assist Ance in suppressing the rising of the Blacks in 1865, reads like a Romance. Hilj Hundred of thase troublesome marauders were transported to Nova Scotia. The descendants of the ancient maroons Are even to this Day a separate people and still enjoy the privileges granted to their ancestors. Pirates Aud their Bloodthirsty have furnished so often the plot and theme for the Mel dramatist and the dime novelist that one hesitates to write about them in sober Earnest. But they were no myths in Jamaica and no Aco onut of Jamaica s past however Brief can Ornit a reference to the part they played in its history especially As the most dreadful Ca Lantuy that Ever visited the Island is connected with them. The Jamaica pirates generally sought to throw Over their marauding and pillaging expeditions the Tiou of Lagal authority by obtaining letters of Marque but they were nevertheless pirates pure and simple. One chief after another scoured the Spanish main capturing vessels usually Spanish on the High seas and when the Ocean did not offer enough to satisfy his cupidity Aud love of adventure attacked cities and towns laying waste with fire Aud sword and committing Hornbe barbarities and cruelties. Nothing was sacred to these human devils and yet they were tolerated for Many years by the jamaican authorities. The Island profited by their expeditions and the last half of the seventeenth Century with eased a Prosperity As great a it was wicked and demoralizing. Port Loyal was the capital of the pirate Empire and the maroons filled it with wealth and debauchery. There they maintained in Semi Barbaric state their great establishments. They lived. Like men who with the wealth of princes did not know when they might die and who had no fear of god or Man. Imagination can hardly picture the character of the populace of that Little City under the Sun or the life within its Walls. To it came the reckless the desperate the men most skilled in villainy. With them they brought the spoils of richly Laden Spanish Gal leons bound Home with Silver and Gold the ransoms of cities and whole provinces and meets of merchant ves Sels freighted with Rich stuffs from All the markets of the world. All this and More was poured into port Royal and was spent with a lavishness and extravagance possible Only with treasure brought at so slight a Cost As that of human life. Nothing seemed lacking to make it the wickedest place on Earth yet the vengeance of the lord apparently passed it by. But it was Only for a season. One Day the Earth opened and in two minutes the City its palaces and its hovels Lay at the Bottom of the sea. Thousands of the inhabitants perished with their ill gotten gales and the unburied dead floating in the Harbor or heaped upon the land under a tropical Sun bred a horrible pestilence that carried off thousands of those who escaped the earthquake. Today the Waters of the Bay hide from sight the ancient City. Was Ever retributive Justice More terrible or Complete. Ilo Mantic and exciting As were the lives of All the buccaneers that of Henry Morgan the greatest of the Freebo Oters was the most so. From a White slave in Barbadoes where he had been sold into servitude he became first the most daring and successful of the pirates and later Knight and As lieutenant governor of Jamaica the ruler of that Island. At the sacking of Panama he obtained mule loads of treasure. The Gover Doi who gave him his commis Sion was recalled for that act but Henry Morgan was knighted and As 8ir Henry turned his Back upon his former companions and made a most Papular governor of the Colony.
