Tucker about 1 1 years of age, 4 a son of Mr. James Tucker of Qiieen Ann's County, wa s found dead, hantrinc by the neck ixj the barn of a Iklr. Hunter, at whose house he was pla ced out to board for. the purpose of attending a school near Hall's X Roads. This unfortu nate child possessed an uncommon lively dispo- dispo- sihon, until a few weeks past, smce wnicn n,e was frequently discovered in a gloomy state. On the evening he became a self murderer, he was requested by Mrs. HunUr to render some irifline assistance rav the garden, which he done wkh aDoarent wiDincmess, after which . & i he was seen to take un a rope with' which a calf had -been -been confined, and go towards the barn; a dark cloud had risen about the time from which fell a heavy rain: after the rain ceased, business called some of the family to the barn, where he was found lifeless, hangng by the same rope which he was before seen to take. A coroners inquest was held on the body body on Tuesday the 6th and determined that he came to his death by an act of his own. The crime of piracy, long since begun and carried on in various shapes by Americans, cries aloud fromvthe deep for exemplary and condign punishment. We dread the pardons which have lately been granted to" this class of felons ; we co not mean to say we censure them, but it is deeply to be lamented that any circumstances should exist to render such an act of Ultimed clemency eqraVntf, If ever there was atfmc that rejqairxl th rigid and unexcfptloi.jriLne execution of the lair of piracy to its . very letter, it is the present At any nfs perpetual and sohtary confinement are in- in- dispensibie. ; . 1 The fouowwg facts, from the Mercantile Advertiser of this morning, are now for the first time, brought to light, and on account of marshal abd two deputy sherifiYon horseback.

Several vessels from this port hare never been heard of since their departure, the tale here told is well calculated calculated to excite the most painful conjectures. This vessel (the Patriot) had been employed in the late war as a privateer ; had a privateers crew on board, and if facts could be examined into, it would be found, we venture to say that most of the enormities of every sort, that have smce been committed on the high seas, have been committed by crews Who have been engaged in this species of irregular warfare. May it never again be permitted to disgrace our country. Fate (fthe Pilot Boat Patriot.
