走势吉林快三走势图表今天图表CHAPTER IV - RENEWED INVASION OF SAVAGES

吉林今天走势AND now they had another broil with the three Englishmen; one ofwhom, a most turbulent fellow, being in a rage at one of the threecaptive slaves, because the fellow had not done something rightwhich he bade him do, and seemed a little untractable in hisshowing him, drew a hatchet out of a frog-belt which he wore by hisside, and fell upon the poor savage, not to correct him, but tokill him. One of the Spaniards who was by, seeing him give thefellow a barbarous cut with the hatchet, which he aimed at hishead, but stuck into his shoulder, so that he thought he had cutthe poor creatures arm off, ran to him, and entreating him not tomurder the poor man, placed himself between him and the savage, toprevent the mischief. The fellow, being enraged the more at this,struck at the Spaniard with his hatchet, and swore he would servehim as he intended to serve the savage; which the Spaniardperceiving, avoided the blow, and with a shovel, which he had inhis hand (for they were all working in the field about their cornland), knocked the brute down. Another of the Englishmen, runningup at the same time to help his comrade, knocked the Spaniard down;and then two Spaniards more came in to help their man, and a thirdEnglishman fell in upon them. They had none of them any firearmsor any other weapons but hatchets and other tools, except thisthird Englishman; he had one of my rusty cutlasses, with which hemade at the two last Spaniards, and wounded them both. This frayset the whole family in an uproar, and more help coming in theytook the three Englishmen prisoners. The next question was, whatshould be done with them? They had been so often mutinous, andwere so very furious, so desperate, and so idle withal, they knewnot what course to take with them, for they were mischievous to thehighest degree, and cared not what hurt they did to any man; sothat, in short, it was not safe to live with them.吉林快三走势图表今天图表吉林今天The Spaniard who was governor told them, in so many words, that ifthey had been of his own country he would have hanged them; for alllaws and all governors were to preserve society, and those who weredangerous to the society ought to be expelled out of it; but asthey were Englishmen, and that it was to the generous kindness ofan Englishman that they all owed their preservation anddeliverance, he would use them with all possible lenity, and wouldleave them to the judgment of the other two Englishmen, who weretheir countrymen. One of the two honest Englishmen stood up, andsaid they desired it might not be left to them. "For," says he, "Iam sure we ought to sentence them to the gallows;" and with that hegives an account how Will Atkins, one of the three, had proposed tohave all the five Englishmen join together and murder all theSpaniards when they were in their sleep.走势

图表When the Spanish governor heard this, he calls to Will Atkins,"How, Seignior Atkins, would you murder us all? What have you tosay to that?" The hardened villain was so far from denying it,that he said it was true, and swore they would do it still beforethey had done with them. "Well, but Seignior Atkins," says theSpaniard, "what have we done to you that you will kill us? Whatwould you get by killing us? And what must we do to prevent youkilling us? Must we kill you, or you kill us? Why will you put usto the necessity of this, Seignior Atkins?" says the Spaniard verycalmly, and smiling. Seignior Atkins was in such a rage at theSpaniards making a jest of it, that, had he not been held by threemen, and withal had no weapon near him, it was thought he wouldhave attempted to kill the Spaniard in the middle of all thecompany. This hare-brained carriage obliged them to considerseriously what was to be done. The two Englishmen and the Spaniardwho saved the poor savage were of the opinion that they should hangone of the three for an example to the rest, and that particularlyit should be he that had twice attempted to commit murder with hishatchet; indeed, there was some reason to believe he had done it,for the poor savage was in such a miserable condition with thewound he had received that it was thought he could not live. Butthe governor Spaniard still said No; it was an Englishman that hadsaved all their lives, and he would never consent to put anEnglishman to death, though he had murdered half of them; nay, hesaid if he had been killed himself by an Englishman, and had timeleft to speak, it should be that they should pardon him.吉林今天走势EARLY in the morning, when marching from a little town calledChangu, we had a river to pass, which we were obliged to ferry;and, had the Tartars had any intelligence, then had been the timeto have attacked us, when the caravan being over, the rear-guardwas behind; but they did not appear there. About three hoursafter, when we were entered upon a desert of about fifteen orsixteen miles over, we knew by a cloud of dust they raised, thatthe enemy was at hand, and presently they came on upon the spur.
