steamed down on Drake. About went the launch, head on for shore — out went the oars, five in number — bang! went the Teaser's bow rifled gun--hurrah! yelled De Kay, and bang! went his revolver, in derisive reply to the cruiser's fire. The chase instantly got a desperate interest. At every puff of smoke from the Teaser's gun, De Kay slightly put down his helm. Nice seamanship, a quick eye, and a cool brain carried the launch safely through a fire of shots, screaming, roaring close about her, and dashing the water over the crew — the irrepressible joker hooting disrespectfully, and aggravating the Teaser with pantomime as amusing as audacious. Thedraw the plug from the bottom, and to tumble out his five men, and order them up the bluff — the Teaser firing at them as they went — was the work of a moment for De Kay. To lower a boat — to tumble twelve men into her — to hand down twelve rifles to them, and to push them off, was but the work of a moment for the Teaser.
