-DY CAPTAIN MARRYAT.
Philip had not long been on board
ere he found that they were not likely
to have a very comfortable passage ;
for the Batavia was chartered to con
vey a large detachment of troops to
Ceylon and Java , and for the purpose
of recruiting and strengthening the
company's forces at those places. She
was to quit the fleet off Madagascar ,
and run direct for the island of Java ,
the number of soldiers on board be
ing presumed sufficient to insure the
ship against any attack or accidents
from pirates or enemies' cruisers. The
Batavia , moreover , mounted thirty
guns , and had a crew of seventy-five
men. Besides military stores , which
formed the principal part of her cargo ,
she had on board a large quantity of
specie for the Indian market. The de
tachment of soldiers was embarking
when Philip went on board , and in a
few minutes were so crowded that it
was hardly possible to move. Philip ,
who had not yet spoken to the captain ,
found out the first mate , and imme
diately entered upon his duty , with
which , from his close application to it
during his former voyage and passage
home , he was much better acquainted
than might have been imagined.
In a short time all traces ofhurry
and confusion began to disappear , the
baggage of the troops was stored away ,
and the soldiers , having been told off
in parties , and stationed with their
messing utensils between the guns of
the main deck , room was thus afforded
for working the ship. Philip showed
great activity as well as method in
the arrangements proposed , and the
captain , during a pause in his own ar
duous duties , said to him :
"I thought you were taking it very
easy , Mr. Vanderdecken , in not joining
the ship before , but , now you are on
board , you are making up for lost
time. You have done more during the
forenoon than I could have expected.I
am glad that you are come , though
very' sorry you were not here when
we were storing the hold , which , I am
afraid , is not arranged quite as well
as it might be. Mynheer Stcuys , the
first mate , has had more to do than
he could well give attention to. "
"I am sorry that I should not have
been here , sir , " replied Philip ; "but
I came as soon as the company sent
me word. "
"Yes , and as they know that you are
a married man , and do not forget that
you are a great shareholder , they
would not trouble you too soon. I pre
sume you will have the command of
a vessel next voyage. In fact , you are
certain of it , with the capital you have
invested in their funds. I had a con
versation with one of the senior ac
countants on the subject this very
Philip was not very sorry that his
money had been put out to such good
interest , as to be the captain of a
ship was what he earnestly desired.
He replied that "he certainly did hope
to command a ship after the next voy
age , when he trusted that he should
feel himself quite competent to the
It was not until a week after Philip
arrived on board that the Batavia and
the remainder of the fleet were ready
It would be difficult to analyze the
feelings of Philip Vanderdecken on his
second embarkation. His mind was
so continually directed to the object
of his voyage that , although he attend
ed to his religious duties , yet the busi
ness of life passed before him as a
dream. A few days after he had sailed
le bitterly repented that he had not
stated the whole of his circumstances
: o Father Seysen , and taken his advice
upon the propriety of following up his
search ; but it was now too late ; al
ready was the good ship Batavia more
; han a thousand miles from the port
of Amsterdam , and his duty , whatever
t might be , must be fulfilled.
As the fleet approached the Cape , his
anxiety increased to such a degree that
t was remarked by all who were on
joard. The captain and officers com-
nanding the troops embarked , who all
! elt interested in him , vainly attempt
ed to learn the cause of his anxiety.
Philip would plead ill-health ; and his
laggard countenance and sunken eyes
silently proved that he was under
acute suffering. The major part of the
night he passed on deck , straining his
eyes in every quarter , and watching
each change in the horizon , in antici
pation of the appearance of the Phan-
: om Ship ; and it was not till the day
dawned that he sought a perturbed re
pose in his cabin. After a favqrable
passage the fleet anchored" refresh
it Table Bay , and Philip felt some
small relief , that up to the present
: ime the supernatural visitation had
not again occurred.
As soon as the fleet had watered they
again made sail , and again Philip's
agitation became perceptible. With a
iavoring breeze , however , they round
ed the Cape , passed by Madagascar ,
and arrived in the Indian Seas , when
the Batavia parted company with the
rest of the fleet , which steered to Cam-
broonand Ceylon. "And now , " .thought
Philip , "Will the Phantom Ship make
her appearance ? It has only waited
till we should be left without a con
sort to assist us in distress. " But the
Batavia sailed in a smooth sea , and un
der a cloudless sky , and nothing was
seen. In a few weeks she arrived off
Java , and previous to entering the
splendid roads , the Batavia hove to for
the night. This was the last night
they would be Under sail , and Phil
ip stirred not from the deck , but
walked to and fro , anxiously waiting
for the morning. The morning broke
the sun rose in splendor , and the Ba
tavia steered into the roads. Before
noon she was at anchor , and Philip ,
with his mind relieved , hastened down
to his cabin and took that repose
which he so much required.
He awoke refreshed , for a great
weight had been taken off his mind.
"It does not follow , then , " thought he ,
"that because I am on board the vessel
that therefore the crew are doomed to
perish ; it does not follow that the
Phantom Ship is to appear because I
seek her. . If so , I have no further
weight on my conscience. I seek her ,
it is true , and wish to meet with her ;
I stand , however , but the same chance
as others ; and it is no way certain
that , because I seek , I am sure to find.
That she brings disaster upon all she
meets may be true , but not that I
bring with me the disaster of meeting
her. Heaven , I thank Thee ! Now can
I prosecute my search without re
Philip , restored to composure by
these reflections , went on deck. The
debarkation of the troops was already
taking place , for they were as anxious
to be relieved from their long confine
ment as the seamen were to regain a
little space and comfort. He surveyed
the scene. The town of Batavia lay
about one mile from them , low on the
beach ; from behind it rose a lofty
chain of mountains , brilliant with ver
dure , and here and there peopled with
country seats belonging to the resi
dents , delightfully embosomed in for
ests of trees. The panorama was beau
tiful ; the vegetation was luxuriant ,
and , from its vivid green , refreshing
to the eye. Near to the town lay large
and small vessels , a forest of masts ;
the water in the bay was of a bright
blue , and rippled to a soft breeze ;
here and there small islets ( lika tufts
of fresh verdure ) broke the uniformity
of the water line ; even the town itself
was pleasing to the eye , the white col
or of the houses being opposed to the
dark foliage of the trees , which grew
in the gardens and lined the streets.
"Can it be possible , " observed Philip
to the captain of the Batavia , who
stood by him , "that this beautiful
spot can be so unhealthy ? I should
form a very different opinion from its
"Even , " replied the captain , "as the
venomous snakes of the country start
up from among its flowers , so does
Death stalk about in this beautiful
and luxuriant landcape. Do you feel
better , Mynheer Vanderdecken ? "
"Much better , " replied Philip.
"Still , in your enfeebled state , I
should recommend you to go on
"I shall avail myself of your permis
sion with thanks. How long shall we
stay here ? "
"Not long , as we are ordered to run
back. Our cargo is all ready for us ,
and will be on board soon after we
have discharged. "
Philip took'the advice of 'his cap
tain ; he had no difficulty in finding
himself received by a hospitable mer
chant , who had a house at some dis
tance from the town and in a healthy
situation. There he remained two
months , and then re-embarked a few
days previous to the ship being ready
'or sea. The return voyage was fortu-
nate.and in four months from the date
of their quitting Batavia , they found
hemselves abreast of St. Helena ; for
vessels , at that period , generally made
what is called the eastern passage ,
running down the coast of Africa , in
stead of keeping toward the American
shores. Again they had passed the
Cape without meeting with the Phan-
om Ship ; and Philip was not only in
excellent health , out in good spirits.
As they lay becalmed , with the islands
n sight , they observed a boat pulling
toward them , and in the course of
hree hours she arrived on board. The
crew were much exhausted from hav-
ng been two days in the boat , during
which time they had never ceased
pulling to gain this land. They stated
hemselves to be the crew of a small
Dutch Indiaman , which had foundered
it sea two days before ; she had started
one of her planks , and filled so rap-
dly that the men had hardly time to
save themselves. They consisted of
the captain , mates and twenty men be-
onging to the ship , and an old Portu
guese Catholic priest , who had been
sent home by the Dutch governor for
laving opposed the Dutch interests in
; he island of Japan. He had lived
with the natives , and been secreted by
them for some time , as the Japanese
government was equally desirous of
'apturing him , with the intention of
; aking away his life. Eventually he
lound himself obliged to throw him
self into the arms of the Dutch , as be
ing the less cruel of his ene
The Dutch government decided that
he should be sent away from the coun
try ; and he had , in consequence , been
put on board of the Indiaman for a
passage home. By the report of the
captain and crew , one person only had
been lost ; but he was a person of con
sequence , having for many years held
the situation of president in the Dutch
rr.c. ; at Japan. He was returning
to Holland with the riches which he
had amassed. By the evidence of the
captain and crew , he had insisted ,
after he was put into the boat , upon
going back to the ship to secure a
casket of immense value , containing
diamonds and other precious stones ,
which he had forgotten ; they added ,
that while they were waiting for him
the ship suddenly plunged her bow
sprit under , and went down head
foremost , and it was with difficulty
they had themselves escaped. They
had waited for some time to ascertain
if he would rise again to the surface
but he appeared no more.
"I knew that something would hap
pen , " observed the captain of the sunk
en vessel , after he had been sitting a
short time in the cabin with Philip
and the captain of the Batavia ; "we
saw the Fiend or Devil's Ship , as the }
call her , but three days before. "
"What ! the Flying Dutchman , as
they named her ? " asked Philip. -
"Yes ; that , I believe , is the name
they give her , " replied the captain. "I
have often heard of her ; but it nevei
was my fate to fall in with her before ,
and I hope it never will be again ; fo :
I am a ruined man , and must begin
the world afresh. "
"I have heard of that vessel , " ob
served the captain of the Batavia.
Pray , how did she appear to you ? "
"Why , the fact is , I did not see
anything but the loom of her hull , "
replied the other. "It was very strange ,
the night was fine , and the heavens
clear ; we were under top-gallant sails ,
for I do not carry on during the night ,
or else we might have put the royals
on her ; she would have carried them
with - the breeze. I had turned in ,
when , about 2 o'clock in the morning ,
the mate called me to come on deck.
I demanded what was the matter , and
he replied he could hardly tell , but that
the men were much frightened , and
that there was a Ghost Ship , as the
sailors termed it , in sight. I went on
deck ; all the horizon was clear ; but
on our quarter was a sort of fog , round
as a ball , and not more than two ca
bles' length from us. We were going
about four knots and a half free , and
yet we could not escape from this
mist. 'Look there , ' said the mate.
'AVhy , what the devil can it be ? ' said
I , rubbing my eyes. 'No banks up to
windward , and yet a fog in the middle
of a clear sky , with a fresh breeze , and
with water all around it ; ' for you see
the fog did not cover more than half
a dozen cables' length , as we could
perceive by the horizon on each side
of it. 'Hark , sir ! ' said the mate 'they
are speaking again. ' 'Speaking ! ' said
I , and I listened ; and from out this
ball of fog I heard voices. At last , one
cried out , 'Keep a sharp lookout for
ward , d'ye bear7' 'Ay , ay , sir ! ' re
plied another voice. 'Ship on the star
board bow , sir. ' 'Very well ; strike the
bell there forward. ' And then we
heard the bell toll. 'It must be a ves
sel , ' said I to the mate. 'Not of this
world , sir , ' replied he. 'Hark ! ' 'A
gun ready forward. ' 'Ay , ay , sir ! ' was
now heard out of the fog. which ap
peared , to near us ; 'all ready , sir. '
Tirei" The report of the gun pounded
in our ears like thunder , nnd then "
"Well , and then ? " said the captain
of the Batavia , breathlessly.
"And then , " replied the other cap
tain , solemnly , "the fog and all dis
appeared as if by magic ; the whole
lorizon was clear , and there was noth
ing to be seen. "
"Is it possible ? "

DEAR MRS. PINKHAM :
Change of life was working on
ine. My kidneys and bladder
were affected. I had been
confined to the house all sum
mer , not able to stand
on my feet for any
length of time. Terri
ble pains when urinat
ing and an itching that
nearly drove me wild.
I had tried many reme
dies. I told my hus
band I had great faith
I feel that I am entirely cured. I .
can work all day. I can hardly
realize that such a wonderful cure is possible. Lydia E. Pink-
ham s Vegetable Compound is the best medicine for women. "
I Don t wait until you are prostrated with the mvsterious con
dition known as "Change of Life. " Get Mrs. IMnWuim's ad
vice and learn how other women got through
