收米 When they came up to the ship, and began to row round her, theydiscovered us all hard at work on the outside of the ship's bottomand side, washing, and graving, and stopping, as every seafaringman knows how. They stood for a while gazing at us, and we, whowere a little surprised, could not imagine what their design was;but being willing to be sure, we took this opportunity to get someof us into the ship, and others to hand down arms and ammunition tothose that were at work, to defend themselves with if there shouldbe occasion. And it was no more than need: for in less than aquarter of an hour's consultation, they agreed, it seems, that theship was really a wreck, and that we were all at work endeavouringto save her, or to save our lives by the help of our boats; andwhen we handed our arms into the boat, they concluded, by that act,that we were endeavouring to save some of our goods. Upon this,they took it for granted we all belonged to them, and away theycame directly upon our men, as if it had been in a line-of-battle.
网足收米网足球比分直播球比Two of those boats (which by our glasses we could see were English)outsailed the rest, were near two leagues ahead of them, and gainedupon us considerably, so that we found they would come up with us;upon which we fired a gun without ball, to intimate that theyshould bring to: and we put out a flag of truce, as a signal forparley: but they came crowding after us till within shot, when wetook in our white flag, they having made no answer to it, and hungout a red flag, and fired at them with a shot. Notwithstandingthis, they came on till they were near enough to call to them witha speaking-trumpet, bidding them keep off at their peril.
分直收米It was all one; they crowded after us, and endeavoured to comeunder our stern, so as to board us on our quarter; upon which,seeing they were resolute for mischief, and depended upon thestrength that followed them, I ordered to bring the ship to, sothat they lay upon our broadside; when immediately we fired fiveguns at them, one of which had been levelled so true as to carryaway the stern of the hindermost boat, and we then forced them totake down their sail, and to run all to the head of the boat, tokeep her from sinking; so she lay by, and had enough of it; butseeing the foremost boat crowd on after us, we made ready to fireat her in particular. While this was doing one of the three boatsthat followed made up to the boat which we had disabled, to relieveher, and we could see her take out the men. We then called againto the foremost boat, and offered a truce, to parley again, and toknow what her business was with us; but had no answer, only shecrowded close under our stern. Upon this, our gunner who was avery dexterous fellow ran out his two case-guns, and fired again ather, but the shot missing, the men in the boat shouted, waved theircaps, and came on. The gunner, getting quickly ready again, firedamong them a second time, one shot of which, though it missed theboat itself, yet fell in among the men, and we could easily see dida great deal of mischief among them. We now wore the ship again,and brought our quarter to bear upon them, and firing three gunsmore, we found the boat was almost split to pieces; in particular,her rudder and a piece of her stern were shot quite away; so theyhanded her sail immediately, and were in great disorder. Tocomplete their misfortune, our gunner let fly two guns at themagain; where he hit them we could not tell, but we found the boatwas sinking, and some of the men already in the water: upon this,I immediately manned out our pinnace, with orders to pick up someof the men if they could, and save them from drowning, andimmediately come on board ship with them, because we saw the restof the boats began to come up. Our men in the pinnace followedtheir orders, and took up three men, one of whom was just drowning,and it was a good while before we could recover him. As soon asthey were on board we crowded all the sail we could make, and stoodfarther out to the sea; and we found that when the other boats cameup to the first, they gave over their chase.收米网足球比分直播网足球比Being thus delivered from a danger which, though I knew not thereason of it, yet seemed to be much greater than I apprehended, Iresolved that we should change our course, and not let any one knowwhither we were going; so we stood out to sea eastward, quite outof the course of all European ships, whether they were bound toChina or anywhere else, within the commerce of the Europeannations. When we were at sea we began to consult with the twoseamen, and inquire what the meaning of all this should be; and theDutchman confirmed the gunner's story about the false sale of theship and of the murder of the captain, and also how that he, thisDutchman, and four more got into the woods, where they wanderedabout a great while, till at length he made his escape, and swamoff to a Dutch ship, which was sailing near the shore in its wayfrom China.分直
收米He then told us that he went to Batavia, where two of the seamenbelonging to the ship arrived, having deserted the rest in theirtravels, and gave an account that the fellow who had run away withthe ship, sold her at Bengal to a set of pirates, who were gone a-cruising in her, and that they had already taken an English shipand two Dutch ships very richly laden. This latter part we foundto concern us directly, though we knew it to be false; yet, as mypartner said, very justly, if we had fallen into their hands, andthey had had such a prepossession against us beforehand, it hadbeen in vain for us to have defended ourselves, or to hope for anygood quarter at their hands; especially considering that ouraccusers had been our judges, and that we could have expectednothing from them but what rage would have dictated, and anungoverned passion have executed. Therefore it was his opinion weshould go directly back to Bengal, from whence we came, withoutputting in at any port whatever - because where we could give agood account of ourselves, could prove where we were when the shipput in, of whom we bought her, and the like; and what was more thanall the rest, if we were put upon the necessity of bringing itbefore the proper judges, we should be sure to have some justice,and not to be hanged first and judged afterwards.网足球比They had several other discourses, it seems, after this; andparticularly she made him promise that, since he confessed his ownlife had been a wicked, abominable course of provocations againstGod, that he would reform it, and not make God angry any more, lestHe should make him dead, as she called it, and then she would beleft alone, and never be taught to know this God better; and lesthe should be miserable, as he had told her wicked men would beafter death.详情
