The Captain's Daughter. For two years I had been mate of the schooner Jesde, Capt. Martin, plying regularly between Hydncy, New South Wales, and Hobartatown, Van Dieman ’ s Land. Wc had a trim craft, easily han ­ dled, and our crew never exceeded six men. There was no second mate, and I he Captain stood his own watch. A year before I engaged with her she had been captured by convicts from the penal settlement, and when recovered, after two or three days she had been supplied with an arsenal. Tho trip which gave rise to the inci dents I am about to relate, brought the Captain ’ s daughter on board fur the first time, she having been away to school for a couple of yean. The schooner was named after her, and if a vessel could feel proud of anything then the Jessie would have been pulled up over the good looks of the girl whose name she bore. Mias Martin was a typical Eng ­ lish girl, and just ns handsome as the best of them. She was then 19 years old, in the best of health and spirits and it was as good as medicine for a sick person to hear her sing and laugh. As our voyages were short and safe we had been able to keep tho same crew for a long time, but on this trip we were all broken tip. Two of the old men had been taken i.l while we were loading, a a third had mysteriously absented him ­ self, and on the day wo were to sail the cook walked ashore in a huff. There was no trouble, however, in filling the four vacancies. Indeed, they were ap ­ plied for us soon ns vacated. The cook «M another colored man with good re ­ commendation, while the three sail- oni were English-speaking and of Eng ­ lish nativity. They were hard- looking fellows, and I would not have trusted them not to rob mo, hut I took them just the anino. At sea thoy would have their stations and their < rders, and the discipline of * ves ­ sel discourages all exhibitions of impu ­ dence towards officers. Our crew was now composed of six sailors, Cnj tain, mate ami cook, ami the girl Jess brought tlie number on hoard tip to ten. It is a run of over 500 miles almost due south from Sydney t > Hohartstown, hut until passing Capo Howo wo had the coist in view, and knew where shel ­ ter could he had in case of a storm. Our crew went cheerfully to work, the weather favored us, and for threo days everything went ns smoothly as you please. I had two of the old men and one of the new in my watch, and on the fourth night, as wc just held steerage- way during my watch, tho man at the wheel, whose name was Needham, and who had been with us several voyages, fussed around for a t'me, and finally said : “ Mr. Loring, I'd like to speak with you about a matter. ' 1 “ Very well; what is it?\ “ I don ’ t like them new men, sir. ” “ For what reason?\ “ They ’ ve got their heads together too often, sir, and they vo talked to Bill and Tom, my old mates, until they vc upset them. ” \About what?\ “ Well, sir, about pirates and islands and treasure, and such stuff. I didn t take to ’ em, and they didn't take to me, and so they don ’ t trust me, hut I can ’ t help but think there's something wrong in tiro wind. ” I wasn ’ t startled — not even worried. Sailors are always talking such nonsense among themselves and aboard of every craft there is always a tale hearer who wants to curry favors. Needham was distant and peculiar, os I had heard the men say, and tlint was why the trio had not taken to him. I thought the matter over for some time, and Bum thanked the man for his information and naked him to keep his eyes ojN*n. Wc had a light breexe •)! night, and the next day was very mild. We got a »tiff breeze from noon to midnight, and on tho morning of the sixth day were below the cnj>o. Then the wind died out flat and dead, and all day long we hadn ’ t sufficient to mlflc a feather. I bed been watching tho new men cloee Ij since Needham Mated his suspicions, bat not a thing could I diicovcr to con ­ firm hb sUtcmenta. They were cheer ­ ful, prompt and tespectful, and I quite fitariaaed any thought of conspiracy. If Needham bad heard or seen anything fUrttifr he bad not reported it, although invited to do so. The captain's trick that nigbi wm from 8 to If. At • o'clock I was asleep i.»7lw*h,th.c.pul» WM toUDgiug ■Ml •Mfcbg, »d J ot WM ta U h nb« .M** was no wind yet, while the night was soft and starlight. There was a man at tho wheel, but this was mere form ’ s soke, he having nothing to do. All of a sudden as tho captain paced the quar ­ ter some one in the fo ’ cnstle shouted “ Murder! ” There was a scramble and a tush, followed by a splash, and a chok ­ ing voice from the water gasped out: “ Its mutiny, captain, look out! ” It was the voue of Needham who had been stabbed and flung overboard. Next moment the captain saw every other man before tho mast advancing aft armed with capstan bars and belaying pins. The cook was with them, and the old man was not long in realizing that something worse than mutiny was on. Instead of ordering, or arguing, or wait ­ ing for explanations, he leaped down into the cabin and bolted the heavy doors behind him. I had heard the row, and was now dressed, and so it rnmo to pass that the captain, Jess, and myself wore to ­ gether aft, and all made prisoners at once. “ It ’ s mutiny, Mr. Loring! ” shouted the captain oh I entered the main cabin. “ Arm yourself and we ’ ll teach the ras ­ cals a lesson not to In? forgotten ! ” lie had scarcely ceased speaking when a bullet struck him in the right shoulder, and n shot fired at me grazed iny head. One of the mutineers had tired through the open skylight. The captain stag ­ gered to the sofa, and in a jiffy I had the lights out. Then I pulled the'heavy sash down and secured it, and we wen: safe for the moment. It needed no explana ­ tion to satisfy me of what had happened. The crew had seized the schooner, and Needham had been murdered because he would not join the conspiracy. I had a revolver, and I started for tho deck, hut the captain stopped me: ' Come hack, Mr. Loring. You have no show 1 They would kill you before you got on deck ! ” “ But wo must get the schooner hack 1\ I said. “ Certainly; hut wo can ’ t do it by throwing our lives away. We are safe for the present. Help me off with my coat and attend to this wound. Jess, you take my revolvonaml stand in the companion way to guard the doors. ” 1 got at the wound ns toon and as carefully os I could, and was rejoiced to find that the bullet had struck the hone an 1 glanced off. Indeed, it fell out of the flesh as I washed nway the blood. It was thus a painful hut not a dangerous wound. I soon had it attended to, and the captain thought he would not l>c prevented from handling a revolver. I had just got him fixed up when some one rapped at the doors, and a voice ex- ch.imed : “ Below, there I I want a wold with you ! ” ‘ What is it?\ demanded tho Cap ­ tain. “ The schooner is ours, ns you of course know. We don't want your lives. You can have a l»oat and start off as soon as you please. “ But we don't pro]m e to go!\ “ Don't get cantankerous, old man. We ’ ve got the schooner, ami wc know enough to keep her. We don ’ t want you here. If you accept our offer, all right. If you want to fight it out, then look out for yourselves!\ “ That's what we projmsc to do, ” re ­ plied the Captain, and then all was et. I crept to the head of the companion stairs mid heard the mutineers convers ­ ing in low tones, mid while I sought to catch what they said, n man ran aft to the wheel and the others began to make sail. The calm was broken. I knew the course they would make without seeking a sight of the cabin compass. They would head to the west, probably for King Island, and while between the south const of An tralia and the north const of Van Dieman's Land, a stretch of over 200 miles, there would lie no fear of meeting with any craft larger than a coaster, ow ing to the numerous shoals and shallows. The breeze came up live ­ ly, ami the schooner went dnueing away im lively ns if all had I mcu nt jH-ace. “ They won't try to U5 foe Ajj.'JlO . .. and perhaps u it until morning, ” said tho Captain, “ and wc must make ready. ” Wc first made a barricade at the door of the main cabin, using the sofa, fable and chairs. Then we got out and load ­ ed five muskets, placed three cutlasses handy, and, in addition, each had a re ­ volver. We worked in tho dark, but wo knew where everything was to ho found. You might have looked for the girl to break down, hut there was never a sign of it. The schooner reeled off the miles at a lively pace for the next four hours, and morning came without our having been disturbed. Then sail was shortened, the craft laid to, and, as soon as the men liad had a bite to eat, the leader sum ­ moned us with: “ Below, there! ” “ Wei!, ” answered the Captain. “ We will give you another chance to leave. You can- have a boat, oars, sail, Water, and grub, and no one shall hinder your going. ” “ Suppose we refuse to got ” “ Then your blood be upon your ovjn head! Rather than surrender the schooner we ll burn her and you with her! Ill gir« you half an hour to think it over.\ We didn't want two minutes. We wen determined not only no* to leeve the soheoner, hpt te teteP t un her. Wu •upteted te h by the skylight, but this waa a small affair, and did not command but a portion of tho cabin. And, as we afterward ascertained, the only firearm among the mutineers waa a double-bar ­ relled piatol, which had already been discharged, and could not he reloaded for want of ammunition. They would also hatter in the doors of the com- jianion, but we hoped to hold them at ihtf barricade. They could not come at us by way of the hold, for that was full. Wo got a bite to cat from the pantry, and by that time were hailed for our an ­ swer. The Captain replied that wo would not go, and defied them to do their worst. We heard them moving softly about, and at her own request Jess was allowed to pull away a portion of tho barricade and creep up the stairs to lis ­ ten, while tho Captain and I stood with our guns ready to repulse any attack by the skylight. Jess was returning when a lettering ram drove in the doors hardly an arm ’ s length nway, and tho men who had wielded the Spar raised a yell at sight of her. Not one person in ten thousand, man or woman, would have done as she did. Instead of springing over the barricade,she levelled her revol ­ ver and shot one of the men,the leader of the mutiny, through the head ns ho stood above her. As he threw up his arms and fell she shouted to us to coma up, rushed up the stairs and wo heard her fire twice more before wo got over tho barricade. When we got on deck no one hut Jess was to lie seen erert. Two dead men and one wounded unto death were lying on the deck, and tho other threo had fled to the fo'castlo. Two minutes later thoy were begging for their lives, and they crawled like curs ns they came up to be hound. Jess killed two of tho new men and mortally wounded tho cook, and the mutiny had been put down and tho craft retaken before you could count a hundred. Her movements had boon so swift and her aim was so fortunate that everything had to go before her. up to listen to the confession rascals.

Prof. Frcsenud cites u number of wcll- nuthcnticatcd incidents illustrating the jealousy that exists among tho lower order of animals — jealousy involving a train of thought and process of reasoning. One of the most curious of the practical experiments he himself made was in the case at a family of storks at Constan tinoplc. Having obtained |>erm'H«ioii of tho caliph to investigate the social and domestic economy of these historic bird-*. Prof. Fniicuud introduced into one of the ncsls on the roof of a mosque eleven duck eggs, and took nway the egg* which the mother stork had laid. The birds did not seem to notice the exchange, and the male and female stork took turns fas is the custom with most birds) at sitting u]K)ii the eggs. In due time the eggs were hatched ami nine plump ducklings made their ap|>carcucc. The mother stork was apparently fully satisfied,and she brooded over her callow infants with great tenderness. But when tho father stork .gat a gLiui pio. a L . the_dm:k.lij' gaJjtalmui tnei. terribly agitated and evinced ' his displeasure by shrill cries anil violent gesticulations with hia wings and legs. As if, however, to liave the scandal prop ­ erly if not legally ventilated,tills enraged husband flew away and presently returned with an immense number of neighbors of both sexes. The strange company expelled the mother bird from her nest, and for a long time inspected tho young ducklings, keeping up meanwhile an incessant chattering, as if, forsooth, they were discussing among themselves the probability of the female stork ’ s infidelity. At last, seeming to have agreed upon a verdict, they fell upon the female and killed her, after which they put the young ducklings to death and destroyed the nest and ever/ vestige thereof. Prof. Frescaud says that soon after this judicial murder the father steftc, seemingly overcome by mortification at the supposed faithlessness of his wife, committed suicide by drowning in the Bosorus.
