A DIVER'S ADVENTURES. A correspondent who has interviewed Captain Boyton sends a report of the captain's statements to the Gentle man's Magazine:-" Soon afterwards I worked down into the Gulf of Mexico. The first coral I raised was at Catoche. Knocking round above there, I heard the loss of the schooner Foam. The first mate and three men got saved, but the captain, his daughter, and three men were lost. I slung round to see if she could be' raised. After we'd spent best part of a week, sailed over her and dropped anchor. It was a lovely Sunday morning when we struck her. She lay in sixty feet of water on a bottom as white as the moon. Look ing down I could see her leaning over on one side upon the coral roeef When I got down to her I saw she'd torn a great gap in the reef' when she ran against it. The mainmast was gone and hung by the bfore. I clambered up; I saw whole shoals of fish playing in and out of the hatches. First I went to look for the bodies, for I never like to work whi...
