A Golden Bride: THE STORY OF A PIRATE'S LEGACY. I chartered a schooner from New-Zealand, and, having managed to find a trustworthy person to act as locum tenons for me, and to take temporary charge of my store and plan. tation, Tom and I set sail, in her with a Kanaka crew. With much difficulty and great loss of time we at last discovered the pirates' island. It was a:. very small one, lyingy far away from the .ordinary.course of, trading-vessels, and being at some distance from inhabited groups. Upon it we found the concealed hoard of plunder, just as the dying man had described it to Tom. It consisted of beche.-de-mer, pearl-shell, tortoise-shell, cocoa-nut oil, copra, and fibre, the fungus that the Chinese prize so highly, candle-nuts, dye-woods, Tomano wood, nuts, and gum, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, per. fume materials, &c. But a good deal of the beche-de-mer and more perishable goods had, owing to the lapse of time and insecurity from the weather, become totally spoile...
