No sooner had the band about me got to Work than It was a howling, disorganized toob, regardless alike of leader, order and tinlty of Interest. Civilization teaches the value ot concerted action. The barbarian lacks the art to understand the use of combination in crime. Tho art and policy of a judicious division of spoils arc beyond him. Consequently in that scene of clamorous contention each rogue simply seized nnd made oft With what he could gather, defending his booty with tooth and claw after the manner of his fellow savages, the wolf and tiger. Standing idly by I took a grim delight in noting how they thwarted and hindered themselves and what time and energy ,they devoted to bootless scuffling. As the cargo diminished the struggle .grew hotter and the hubbub louder. Curses and recriminations rose shrill and fierce, foces were black and swollen with avarice, eyes ablaze with anger, and I really .thought the thing would end in a flood of i _ i TWbuldst thou hove all, O son of a doR, Ihd leave none to rue?" "I will let thy life out ere parting with nn ounce weight to thee." "May Azrael [the an«el of death] .wlze thee nnd drag thee to perdition, thou ioul thief." "Calamity make thy leg bare." "May scorpions eat thy heart out, thou unjust man." "Alalec [the keeper of hades] have tbee eternally iu his keeping." "May thy bands rot for thoir greediness, O most , Wicked of robbers." "Mayest thou seethe In the fiery flood," such were some of the .cries with 'which the pillagers carried on •> their scramble, In the midst of the strife, when the tumult was at its height and the company so Intent ou clutching and tearing from each other that they had no eyes for anything else, suddenly there rung out a startled cry that sent burdens rolling on the deck and bands gripping in girdles for pistol or blade. "Enemy, enuray!" yelled a man who chanced to look out to sea, andsureenough there, less than u tcuth of a league off, were two large,boats full of men coming swiftly - toward us under the combined impulsion of sail and our. Perhaps n sixth of o league •beyond these rode at anchor a vessel of •trange rig and build, from which it was plain they had come. The crew on board the Bird of Paradise acted with the valor of surprised thieves. Evidently of the mind that half a loaf is better than no bread, many of them leaped Into the boats alongside and tried to make «ff with what booty they had managed to secure. But before they could get away the strangers wore among them, and in a twinkling half the boats were floating keel op. It was surprising to see the rapidity with which bout after boat canted o\vr and emptied its contents, human and ii ,+nimate, into tho son. A push, tliu touo fan oar, a jerk ou bows or stcru'seemed i It. But skill always gives an idea o , and it was plain the present performer were plaving familiar parts. ' Th,e follows in the water spluttered, be , lowed and threatened, but oa thu tongu •was the only weapon they wore able to us with any freedom, their opposition scare «ounte<l as a hindrance. The strangers lai •bout them with their oars with such vino and dexterity, such Ilghtnlnglike quick neu and precision, that ere one could sa the thing had well begun hardly a boat remained right side up.

As the diversion declined my mind naturally reverted to my own miserable condition. \Vhnt was to become of mef Was 1 to be left to my own devices with a stranded ship and no commons? And If so, what should I do? Should 1 make my way ashore and risk the savageness of man and beast or remain on the brig to await developments? While 1 was thus thinking and debating, a bont put olf from the pirate ship and came toward me. Coming alongside' its crew climbed on board the brig, and judging it I.est to be civil I received them with a profound salaam and a cordial marhaba, or welcome. 1 might have saved my pains. Instead of returning my salutation the lender came forward with drawn sword, demanding to know whether there was any treasure on board and intimating that if he caught me in a lie my throat would be out on the spot. I assured him that 1 knew of no treasure, but invited them to search for themselves since there might be secret recesses in the ship that I bad not discovered. "Thou sbtilt be guide," said the follow, "and, as Ujou valucst thy life, a true one. Perhaps thou knowest the taste of steel." I meekly complied, conducting them faithfully into every corner above and below, for the fear of death gives wondrous fidelity. They examined very deliberately ns they went along, probing with their sword points into dark recesses and sounding with tho hilts the boards for concealed chambers, sometimeseven kicking furiously in their fits of chagrin us-time passed and no discovery war? made. Their bad humor showed itself also In an ugly inclination to hold me responsible for their ill luck. They would spurt out angry questions about the former occupants of the brig, and before I could" reply turn upon mo with menaces thatmore than once fairly brought my heart to my mouth. One fellow, muttering that I was playing the innocent just a little too much, thrust at me ferociously with his sword, saying that f I did not wish to be cut in two I had bet- xr make a clean breast of it. Fortunately was not close enough to do damage, and on my answering him, with a fervency that must have carried conviction to the heart of a stone, that I knew no more than he did, ho passed on with a curse on my stupidity and blindness. j Fueling their way foot by foot and tak- ng nothing for grunted, they went over the whole interior of the ship—hold, forecastle, sabin, officers' quarters and all—question- ng, contradicting, threatening, and every minute getting more and more frightful with looks of disappointment and rage. My poor belongings they scattered like chaff, appropriating what they considered worth carrying away and effectually dis- | posing of the remainder by cutting and tearing it into shreds and then throwing the rags into the sea. Beside my clothes they took all my weapons (save a pistol I had hidden) and all the ammunition they could find, but by good chance I was able to save my mother's Bible and Duncan's pipes and Isabel's two bunches of white lieathcr, treasures which, as you may suppose, were almost as my life to me. To this were added some powders and pills left by Mr. Watson. Tho rifling done, I was peremptorily ordered ou deck, and I ascended alone. This arrangement puzzled mo, but I was soon enlightened. In a few minutes a thin column, of smoke curled up through the afterhatch; then another roso farther forward, then another and another till the several volumes spread and blended into a thick cloud. I was sorry to see the brig's fate sealed in this way. Wo had been friends long, and she had saved mo when there was no hope. But what could I do to save her? When tho fire hud got a sufficient hold to Insure its speedy victory, tlfc Incendiaries reappeared, and one of them pointing with Ilia sword to tho boat alongside growled that I might get in. In an instant I was down and crouching meekly in the bows, where I was likeliest to bo out of the* way. The others followed cjuickly, and wo rowed away, leaving the Bird of Paradise in a Klieet of flume. Almost in the same moment my company of rats sprang into the water and struck out gallantly (or tho uhore, Iu spite of four I cquld not help giving them a hearty "well done" for fare- welL PUN OF THE LEADERS. It t§ Their Intention to Crowd the Tariff Debate. HOUSE PROGRAM TOR THIS WEEK, Appropriation Mill* Will Have night ot Way— Postal tllll Flrnt on the list—Con- nutnr nnd Diplomatic till! Wilt Open Up n Wide Ranijre of Ucbate Touching tile Numerous Diplomatic Controversies. WASHINGTON, April 9.—If the plans of the Democratic leaders of the senate rto not miscarry, the eenate will devote itself almost exclusively this week to the consideration of the tariff bill. Their plan is to have the bill taken up each day immediately after the conclusion of the routine morning business, which means that thoy desire as much of the morning hour, which usually lasts until 2 o'clock, as possible, and cut out the discussion of miscellaneous subjects, many of which ore introduced when a question like the tariff bill is under discussion for the purpose of obtaining delay. They may not succeed in getting such an order as this, but the effort in that direction is a declaration of their intention of crowding the debate along as rapidly as possible. The Democratic members of the finance committee will also undertake to extend the. daily sessions until 0 o'clock, which will most likely be resisted by the Republicans. Other questions which may receive attention during the week are Chinese .treaty, tho Russian thistle bill and the resolution providing for the coinage of Mexican dollars in this country. Program In the House. 'Appropriation bills will have right of way in the house during the week. It is the intention of the house managers to push ahead with these bills and get them out of way as soon as possible. Some in the house are alarmed at the slow progress made in the senate with the tariff bill and the seernipg indifference of those in charge of it. They think .by clearing np the work of tho house the country i will see that any responsibility which may exist will lay at the door of the senate. The principal items of difference involved in the postal bill is that of the subsidy to the fast southern mail. It may require two days to dispose of this single item. After the postal bill is disposed of tho consular and diplomatic bill will be disposed of. This bill will probably be made a basis for a general review of tho foreign relations of the government. The matters -connected with the attempt to restore Queen Lilioukalani will again bo thrashed over. The Brazilian resolution and the action of Admiral Stautou will come in for their share of attention, as will also Bluefields, Nicaragua, incident and perhaps the wreck of the Kearaargo In fact, the debate will probably take wide range and may touch upon any of the numerous diplomatic controversies pending The Bluefields incident, involving the enforcement of the Monroe doctrine, coupled perhaps with an intimation of bad faith on tho part of Great Britain in carrying out tho award of the Bering sea tribunal, will probably attract the bulk of. attention. Tho chances are the discussion of these sub- jecta will consume the remainder of the week after tho postoftice bill is completed, but if not, the house will go ahead with tho army bill. The river and harbor bill will follow. RELIGIOUS EDUCATION SOCIETY. :%% [CONTINUED.] BIG GATHERING AT SALT LAKE. •ourlh Aiiiuml Coiilurimco ot tln> Luttor May Suliitu In Sus»li,n.
