All the little circle at Mr. Atkins’ watched the

recess which was devoted to her use while erect

queutly did, to overlook her for a few minutes.—
She looked on iu silence for some time, and then
“lt is the most beautiful thing, Augusta, that 1
ever saw. But is it quite perpendicular?”
‘•Perfectly so,” said Miss Leigh.
“Perhaps it is the position from which 1 now
view it, that makes it seem to lean a little toward

“It undoubtedly is,” said Miss Leigh; for it is
“It is really the most beautiful thing I ever saw,”
reiieateJ Miss Eustace ; and soou alter took a seat
on the other side of the room.
He had been but a short time settled to her
work, when Mr. Chauncev made his appearance ;
and ju*t passing the compliments of the morning,
he drew a chair towards Miss Leigh’s table, and
seated himself beside her.
“Wliat are you doing, Miss Leigh?” said he,
in a tone of surprise, as soon as he had time to ob
serve that instead of adding shells to the fabric,
she was deliberate!* removing them : “Have you
made any mistake 7”
“Abby has been finding fault with mv work,”
*he replie \ H r words seemed to almost i hoke
her. and h-r eyes sj. ukled with unusual tire, while
a very bright spot burned on her cheek.
“Fault! what fault ?” asked Mr Chauncev.
loan instant Miss Eustace was beside the table,
and catching th" hand that was about to icmov..
another shell, she cried-
“Dear Aug i*: t. what do you mean ! you must
not rt move another shell from this beautiful fa
With a motion not perfectly gentle, Miss Leigh
w:t . irew her Land troni Miss Eustace’s grasp, and
iu silence proceeded to remove the shell.
“Do persuade her, Mr. Chauncey,” said Miss
Enstac*-, with eagerness. ‘Do persuade her to let
alone thl« work of destruction. I only asked her
il it wasquite perpendicular; and no doubt it was
my pen tot observation that made it appear other

arms arou tl h*-r friend's neck, “do desist from

But Miss Leigh would not yield. Releasing
lierselt liom Miss Eustace’s arms, she returned to
her work of and -molution, while she said
‘l shall t ike it to pieces, Aliss Eustace. T like
not that any thing should go from beneath my

•Thai is a right principle,’ thought Mr. Chaun

however, is so slight, that few persons probably

Miss Leigh removed her work to a greater dis

amined it carefully.

• xpr- td regret ou her features, while she
held up her lips lur a kiss.
•J hav-.- nothing to forgive,’ said Miss Eustace,
a* sii • placed her lips on those of her friend with
the warm kiss of affection-
Mr. Chauncey drew a long breath, as if relieved
from an oppressive burden.
noV.vithsinnding this speedy reconciliation,
Mr. Chauncey’s visit was not pleasant as usual.
Mi?s Leigh seemed too intent on taking her work
r > | Fee*, to converse with her usual vivacity.
Nor did her countenance wear exactly its most
agreeable expression. In a few- minutes after the
mutual kiss ha ! been given, a look of uneasiness ;
oi discontent, settled on her features,—and a ccr
t.uu rometl.iug lurked about her eve and brow,
which, to -iv the least, was not attractive. There
was something, too, in the c losing of her mouth
(hat rendered ln-r far less beautiful than usual.
All this might have arisen from the unpleasant
ness of the task of taking to pieces that which
she had put together with so much care and pains.
But lie tlie cause what it might, Mr. Chauncey
was paralyzed by the effect. He made one or two
efiovts at conversation, as he found silence very
embarrassing. I[e tasted not that rich enjoyment
w-hicn lie sometimes had, while sitting in perfect
silence beside the object of his admiration. But
his eilorts to converse were unaviling, as Miss
L«-m!i answered only by monosyllables. He wish
ed Miss Eustace w ould do something to break
the spell; bm she had resumed her seat and her
work on the other side of the room, and was silent

LAST DAYS OF A PIRATE.
I wis born in Wales. At the age of fifteen
years I lost parents, friends and Ibrtuue. Thrown
on mv own resources, 1 came to the West Indies,
and succeeded, alter a time in obtaining the situa
tion of overseer to Gonzales, the governor of St.
Ann. He was a proud and haughty Spaniard
whom I disliked, lbr I had not learned to li.ite,
and l should soon have left his services but for a
being whom he called his daughter; the fairest;
but wir.it matters it how fair she was ; I loved her
—loved with all the pure affections of my soul—
and she loved me. ell; five years passed away.
At length I gained her consent to leave the island,
and unite her destinies with mine; for the stern
Spaniard would as soon have bestowed liis daughter
on a slave as on me. 1 obtained a boat and the assis
tance of a negro to convey us to the main, when
th" black villain betrayed us to Ins master, and on
the point ol enibar.,iii‘i we found ourselves sur
rounded by soldiers and slaves, wha. by the gover
nor’s order, stripped me to the skin ; yes there be
lore the gaze oi hundreds; and worse, before her
for whom I only eared to live, I was stripped and
flogged by a negro; Oh, how my heart was cru
shed; My spirit was broken but not subdued.
There, kneeling on the sand, the blood streaming
from my lacerated shoulders, 1 swore never to
rest satisfied, until I had washed out the foul dis
grace in the heart’s blood of a hundred -Spaniards.
I have performed my oath. Twenty long years
have sped away since that accursed hour, and the
revengeful flame then kindled in my soul has ever
burned with fierce intensity, while each new victim
served as fuel to the raging lire, and naught but
the chill damps of death can quench its blaze. The
governor obtained my liberty, or rather nn release
from a filthy dungeon, i entered into the military
service of the Spaniards. The revolution which
had broken out in Caraccas had now become gener
al along the main ; the patriots were every where
in arms, an i I soon found means to join them but
not without first sheathing my knife in the hearts
of my colonel and two sentinels.
Here my hatred to the Spaniards soon rendered
me the command of a small party with which I
prosecuted a guerilla warfare in the interior ; but
was finally taken, manacled and marched barefoot
and wounded across the isthmus to Panama, with
scarcely a rag to protect me from the scorching
sun : it was almost insupportable. I complained
ol my head, and the merciless villains gave me a pa
per cap ; and lest the wind should blow it from
off my head, they fastened it to my scalp with boil
ing pitch. But the desire ol revenge supported
me beneath all their tortures. I again escaped
and atTengt'h found myself at the seigeof Cartha
genia.’lti the coinmand of a gun boat. Here I
signalized myself by many a deed of blood, and
after the capture of the place obtained a captain’s
commission, of a gun brig. I was ordered to con
vey several of the Spanish nobility, with their pro
perty to the island ot Caracca, and accordingly
set sail, but steered my course directly for St. Ann.
On the passage I called my crew together ; in
formed them that we had on board upwards of two
millions of dollars belonging to the Spaniards, who
were our natural enemies, and inquired if they
were disposed to lot so line a prize slip thus easily
through their fingers ? They caught greedily at
the bait, and with one voice exclaimed, “Set the
Spaniard : adrift: land them on the desert island.”
Having tints obtained their consent to an act which
equally implicated all, 1 resolved on my future
course, and took my measures accordingly. That
night, while the passengers were asleep in their
.berths, I despatched them successively, with mv
own hand and launched them through the cabin
windows; they told half a score towards the ful
filment ol my oath. We arrived at St. Ann, and
anchored oil the island at nisrht. I immediately
landed with a boat’s crew of chosen ruffians, anil
proceeded undiscovered to the house of Gonza
On the way wc met his son, a lad. of sixteen
years, whom 1 compelled to conduct me to his fa
thers bedside, where I found him buried in the
arms ot | sleep. There lie lay the object of mv
soul’s most bitter hatred. Did 1 strike him tlien ?
Did 1 send him slumbering into eternity ? No, no :
F roused him ; he saw me stand smiling over him
with mv dagger at his throat, and liis craven son
burst with terror from liis glaring eyes. Oh, what
a delicious moment was that to me. He spoke no
word, but gagged and bound, I had him speedily
on board, whilst my crew sacked and set' fire to
the town, the hateful scene of my early degrada
tion. Yet was there one biiterpan.g tube endur
ed; but’twas only for a moment. Ere I left the
island the daughter of Gonzales came: she whom
I loved so well; on her knees she besought me to
“spare! oh, spare my father! You hived me
once" Aye, but I love no longer; revenge has
absorbed my soul; there is no room for love ;
awav ! I saw her no more, As for the governor,'
1 had him whipped until he implored me in mercy
to plunge m v dagger to liis heart. No such mer
cy for him; the scourge was plied while he had

sharks. Why do you shrink as if in horror?

AWFUL STEAMBOAT ACCIDENT.
Loss or 125 Livks
Tt becomes again our painful duty to record one
of the most awful and and. structive incidents known
in the terrible and fatal catalogue of steamboat
Tiiis afternoon about six o’clock, the new and
elegant steam boat Moselle, Capt. Perin, left the
whan ot this city, (full of passengers) for Louis
ville and St. Louis, and with a view of taking a
family on board at Fulton about a mile and a
halt above the quay, proceeded up the river, and
made fast to a lumber raft for that purpose.
Here the family were taken ou board, and du
ring the whole time of the detention, the Captain
was holding on to nl! the steam he coukl create,
with an intention of showing off to the best advan
tage the great speed ot the boat as she passed
down the whole length of the city. The Moselle
was anew brag boat, and had recently made sev
eral exceedingly quick trips to and from this place.
Soon as the family were taken on board from
'kf raft, the boat shoved off, and at the very mo
ment her wheels m ule tU« evolution, her
boilers burst with a most awful and astounding
noise, equal to the most violent clap of thunder-
The explosion was destructive and heart rending
in the extreme, as we are assured by a gentleman
who was sitting on liis Horse on the sho’e, wait*
ing to sec the boat start. Heads, limbs, bodies
mid blood, were seen flying through the air in ev-
ery direction, attended by the horrible shrieks and
groans from the wounded and the dying.—The
boat, at the moment of the accident, was about
thirty feet from the shore, and was a perfect wreck.
She seemed to be torn all to flinders as far back as
the gentlemen’s cabin, and her hurricane deck
(the whole length) was entirely swept away. The
boat immediately began to sink rapidly, and float
(with a strong current) down the river, at the
same time getting farther from the shore.
1 lie Captain was thrown by the explosion en
tirely into the street, and was picked no dead and
dreadfully mangled. Another man was thrown en
tirely through the roof of one ofthe neighboring
houses, and limbs and fragments of bodies scattered
about the river and shore in heart rending profu
sion. Soon as the boat was discovered to lie rap
idly sinking, the passengers who remained unhurt
in the gentlemen’s and ladies’ cabins, became
panic struck, and with a fatuity unaccountable,
jumped into the river. Being above the ordinary
business parts ol the city, there were no boats a!
hand except a f**w hrge and unmanageable wood
flats, which were carried to the relief of the sufier
ers as soon as possible, by the few persons on the
shore. Many were drowned, however, before
they could be rescued from a watery grave, and
many sunk who were not afterwards seen.
AVe afe told that one little boy on shore was
seen wringing liis hands in agony! imploring those
piesent to save his lather mother, and three sisters,
all of whom were sniggling iu the water to gain
the shore, but whom the jmor little fellow had the
awful misfortune to see perish, one by one, almost
within his reach. An infant child,'belonging to
this family, was picked up alive, floating down
the river on one of the fragments of the hurricane
Dr. Wilson Hughey, of the T. S. Armv,(nod
brother-in-law to our estimable I 'Uow citizen, W.
H. Hughes, of the Pearl St. House,) is doubtless
among the slain, as he was known to have been on
.board, and some pieces of the military coat he
had on, were picked up among the fragments.
