MURDER BY TREACHERY.
When they went ont on the boom Smith
hed a capstan bar. I did not see this, as
I waa asleep, but they confessed it after
ward to me ; and Smith knocked the se
cond mate ou the heed with the capstan
bar aud stunned him, and then drew him
off into the sea, aud he wasn't seen any
more. Then they called up tbe first mate.
aud 1 said, "Hv liod, 1 will hit you yet
before I eet through with you." The
Captain commenced to fire quite lively,
and wife would go in and ont of tbe cabin
and watch for her husband ; but she didu't
kuow how to load. I forgot to say thai
the French boy had been gggd aud tied ;
but he got away and came aft. He bad
a revolver, but he didn't hit any of them
The revolver was no good. During tbe
shootiug I at last bit Klue in the muscle of
tbe arm, and 1 think tbe Captiao bit Smith
in the wrist. Miller then rushed forward
wirh a piece of iron frnm the stove eud struck
the Captain in tbe face aud cut him, and
he waa bleeding. Then be went ait
aud elewed dowu the topsails, Jacob
was aft with nt, but he didu't do any
fighting He was at tbe wheel moat of
the lime. Sometimes he left it and the
schooner would drift a good deal. She
was also taking water, and we would go
ont and work the pumps for awhile, end
then we would h-ive some more fighting.
Towards night of the first day after the
mates were murdered the Captain's wife
came forward ai.d begged of them to tell her
where tbe "boys' were that is, the mates
end spoke m Smith, but they wouldn't
answer her. We bad bread and a little
water and some cold salt beef, bnt we
couldu't cook. We wculd do e little
fighting end then we would set e little. I
believe I fired forty to sixty shots at thorn.
The boy was too frightened to do eoy thing.
Tbe second night we hed to watch all
night, and we kept ourselves in tbe cabin
and we kept good look ont, end we eould
see Miller and Klue and Smith walking
up end dowu to end fro.
