YOUNG CAPTIVES.

Here is a picture of a fine large English ship,
called the Charles Eaton, which was wrecked in
the Southern Ocean. The crew, you see, have
made a raft of some of the spars and planks of the
ship, and having all got upon it, are about cutting
loose from the wreck, with the hope that they may
reach one of the distant islands. .

Poor men! they did indeed reach the island;
but only to meet a more dreadful death than that
threatened them by the waves. Overcome with
fatigue and anxiety, they no sooner gained the
shore, than they all, captain, crew, and passengers,
threw themselves on the earth, and soon were fast
asleep. In this helpless state, they were attacked
by the cruel and blood-thirsty savages who inhab-
ited the island, and all barbarously murdered, ex-
cept two little boys, John and William Doyley.

These children, sons of a gentleman and lady
who had been passengers in the ill-fated ship, were
kept in captivity by the savages for many years.

At the time of the shipwreck, John was a stout
lad, thirteen or fourteen years old; but little Wil-











5

liam was a mere infant, being scarcely two years
of age! Think what a dreadful life these poor lit-
tle orphans had before them ! Their kind parents
cruelly murdered, and themselves prisoners to the
barbarous murderers !

At first the savages treated them harshly, and
made them endure all kinds of privation and hard-
ship. Finally, after changing from one cruel mas-
ter to another several times, they were purchased
by’one more humane than the rest, named Dupper,
who took them to his home on a distant island, and
treated them with a great deal of kindness.

Dupper taught John how to shoot with the bow |
and arrow, with which he was himself very expert. |
He also showed him their method of spearing fish, _
and taught him many other savage accomplish- _
ments. In Dupper’s family, too, the boys both |

learned to speak the native language, and they
soon almost forgot their own.



But they did not forget their own country; at |

least John did not; and as he often talked with |
William about their dear parents, and the pleasant |
home they had left many miles away, there was but —

little danger of William forgetting it either.

Though kindly treated by Dupper and his fam-
ily, and made as comfortable as their savage mode
of life would allow, yet they suffered many cruel
hardships, and severely felt the change from their
former to their present way of living. They con-
stantly sighed for home, and were made quite
wretched by the prospect of a captivity to which
they could see no end, except in death.

But the same kind Providence who had pre-
served them when their parents and the crew of
the unfortunate ship were murdered, still watched
over and protected these despairing orphans. The
day of their deliverance came quite unexpectedly,
An English vessel arrived at the island, and cast
her anchor near the shore. The natives immedi-
ately manned their canoes, and flocked on board,
to trade with the strangers. John was permitted
to go with the others, and when on the deck of the
vessel, he told the captain and officers all about the
shipwreck, the murder of the crew and passengers,
and his own and his brother’s captivity.

The kind captain listened to his story, and then
set at once about effecting the release of the two
boys, which he easily accomplished, and William



8

soon joined John on board of the vessel, where
Dupper also appeared, to take leave of his young
friends. The kind native was quite sad at the
parting, and shed tears of regret as he bade them
farewell. But the boys were too happy in the ex-
pectation of seeing home once more, to grieve
at parting with him, although he had been more
kind to them than any of his countrymen.

The next morning early, the ship set sail, and
after visiting various places, she finally reached
England in safety, where our two orphans were
restored to their surviving friends, by whom they
were kindly taken care of.

Let us hope these little boys were ever grateful
to their Heavenly Father, who had watched over
and preserved them amid all their trials and suffer-
ings, and finally enabled them to reach their home
and friends. And let us all remember, that we
can trust in Him, for He is able to preserve us, as
well in the hour of danger as in that of fancied

security and safety. Our lives are in His hands at



all times, and it is from His mercy and goodness
that we are fed, and clothed, and enjoy the many
blessings which He constantly bestows upon us.
