She fired fivo shots across the bows of the barque, and after Insisting his colours the captain ordered his crew of 24 into the ship's boats and pulled in the direction of the Dellglade, which was two miles away. The Crown of India was sunk by nine shots. As the boats approached th j Dellglade it was seen that her crew was also leav- ing.
