Grav. who was within the surf, and aware of the danger from shark, called out to him not to (o any further at that moment the swell ef the surf hid him from Mr. Gray, but tome of the party who were standing higher on the shore, saw him on a sudden straggle and . sink, v lie rose again directly, and cried oat, a , ' shark, a shark, ne joke, no joke, upon my honour ' 1 am bit1 j but he did not seem to he much hurt, for he swam with srroat strength towards the - ' shore. ' Lieut Grav rushed forward to his aaeiU nnc. and just as ther were near meeting, the shark seized him again, bat be was not pulled underwater and ouly cried out, l am bit, 1 am bit" Air. Gray then rot holJ of him, and at that moment be saw the shark make third attack. They were now rery near the shore, and Mr. Gray, with the assistance of another ronnr man. succeeded in jetting him on dry '' land. He had sunk upon his knee as they were supporting him, and was endeavouring to speak, but could only utter convulsive inarticulate sands. They thought he was fainting, and got Lira veee water winch they pressed nun to annx. . He raised hh head, open1 his lips, and attempt. ' d to rwallrfw, but instantly soak down again and . expired without a rroan. The whole of the flesh with all the blood vessels, was torn away from the back of bis left thigh, for considerable space above the knee. The laceration was so . dreadful, that Mr. Martin the surgeon who has - ' timed to see him on hearing of the accident, d - elared it would bate been impossible to save him, ' had be been upon the spot. The great effusion v of blood must have produced immediate death Us did not u fact survive above two minutes It Is probable the fatal wound was given hi the . second or third attack, when, lieut Gray enw the ravenous monster in the act of seizing his un happy victim. . .The shark appeared to be rather smalt, wilaalarg bead, out the water was so , discoloured with blood, that it could not be di ttoctly seen. V CALCUTTA, July SO, We have received our files of New South ' Wales , papers, which reach to the beginning of May, an Auxiliary Bible society, anaer tne rat ronan of the Governors has been intituled a Sydney, and considerable funds raised for its support. It is also intended to join with the distri bution of Bible, the Establishment ef schools for the education or yeeth. The river Hawkesbury had overflowed its . banks, and inundated all the cultivated land in its neighbourhood. The settlers were forced to take shelter on the high lands, and have consequently subjected to many privations, yet they adhere ostinaiery to tneir eta nanus, ana cannot be prevailed upon, to relinquish houses that are every now and then apt to be swept away try the floods.

A fsw weeks since there appeared in our paper the particulars of a melancholy, accident, which happened at Colombo to a Mr. May, who was attacked and killed by a shark as he was bathing. About the tune we received that ac ' - count, a distressing occurrence of a similar o - tui) took lace u this harbour ; peculiar cir - oomitancA induced us to postpone the public , police of this unhappy catastrophe ; pat as these , Circumstances no longer exist, w feel it our du - ty to comply with the request of our correspondent, fully agreeing with him, that, asanas roneous idea has been prevalent amongst seafaring people, that shark are never teen in sainddy water, and particularly not in Bombay harbour durinx the 8. W. moonsoon, it - it in cumbent on a now to publish the particulars of ; this shocking event, and thus be instrumental in preventing the recurrence of similar disasters. On the evening of the 15th June, Mr. Anderson, the fourth officer of the H. C. ship Charles - Grant, was swimming a short distance front the , ship, accompanied by a quarter - master and fore - castle - man. Mr. Anderson struck out and swam towards a Portuguese frigate then lying at about half a cable's length from him, and be was followed by the two men. As they approached the frigate, Mr. Anderson was beard to say, don't drown me" ; oa this exclamation, the quartermaster tamed round, and to his unspeakable horror and alarm saw an immense shark darting at Mr. Anderson. He immediately exerted hit whole strength for his own safety, and fortunate - ,lv succeeded in retting on board the Portuguese frigate. ; The alarm was given, and the boat of the frigate the Charles Grant were instantly lowered into the waters but unfortunately without preventing the fatal catastrophe. The shark passed Mr. Anderson, then turned round and took him under the water, which was instantly discolored with hi blood He rose again, but was then attacked by five or six more of these voracious animals, and he was gone in an instant. One shark was observed to be making after the forecastle - man, oa which a sentry on board the frigate, with great presence of mind and coolness, levelled his mutket and shot the fi - 'h, thereby preserving the life of the sailor. The next day a Urge shark was caught by the people . en board the H. C. ship Vansiltart, measuring upwards of IS feet. . Extract ef letter iatei Cutlaek, 6th Jul. On the night of the 29th captain Arm - troog inarched I root Bojepore wim a companies ana a brigade of go a to go to Mooeswa, where Jog - bundoo and the principal insurgents had assem bled and erected stockades the distance of 12 er 14 miles, but owing to the badness ef the road it was found ira practicable to make it in one march. Captain Armstrong therefore deferred his approach until the morning of the 1st. The , surrounding jungle is described so extremely , thick, that nothing of the stockade could be made out, even when close upon them. The gakjes pointed out the spot, apon which a heavy Ere was opeoed from the guns, and as the troops advanced the insurgents abandoned all their stockade without any attempt to defend them and with scarce any to interrupt the progress of (he detachment. Ju;bundoo is supposed to have o ait ted the place the day before, and all seem to have looked to their own safety en the commence ment of the firing. Their loss however is be lieved to have been very considerable fortn . aatelv we had not a single casualty. The stock ade were very extensive anJ rtroog as well as situated in the very neart oi me wicxeti jungle. Captain Armstrong wool! purine wherever be ' should bear of the insurgents re - assembling, but they continue dispersed, and be had already de stroyed all their defeoces at ftlonssira, and fall - " en back a mile or two for better ground. It b believed that he will canton in that neighbourhood with 5 companies and a brigade of guns. - . . CALCUTTA, August tO.

The American ship Athens, arrived in the Roads on Thursday evening, from New York, whence she sailed on the 27thMarch. She brings no news. NtmroHK Er&Nim post. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7. Lalett from Liverpool. The ship Jane has arrived at Philadelphia from Liverpool, whence she tailed on the 20th Nor, Letters received in town (hi morning by her, dated at Liverpool the 18th Nor. state that almost all the flour in that market had been bought up the two pre ceding days at 62 to 63 ihilliogi 64 was asked for the remaining parcels. The average price of wheat for the 5th week of the last quarter was 80 shillings and four pence. Upland cotton 18 1 - C to 23a. not brisk. There is very little doubt but that the ports will remain open for flour and grain. Although the Jane brings dates 8 days later than before received, yet we can not learn that they furnish any political new. By the arrival yesterday of the brig Commo dore Porter, from St. Mary1, we received number of document relating to the proceedings of the Patriot at Amelia Island ; but the late hour at which they came to our hands would oo - ly permit of our announcing in a postscript, that that Island bad surrendered to the United States force which bad been seat against it The fol lowing is Commodere Aury's answer to the sum mens for his surrender. We confess we think it contains a well written and strong appeal to the executive, and we shall be well pleased if an an swer can be given satisfactory to the law of nation. . We remain yet at a loss for the constitu tional authority of the president, to order the taking forcible possession of the territory of a pow er sUiI at peace with us. . Head Quarters, Fernandina, Dec. d. 1817 Geotlemen I have received your official letter of Ibis day, by which, in the name of the Government of the United States, you summon us to evacuate this place with the troop under my command, as soon as it will be convenient, as possession tliereof is to be taken by the forces under your command, ander certain conditions specified in your said letter. Neither thi republic, that of Mexico, nor any other of South America, being at war with the U. States, obliges me to state to you. that the contents of your letter greatly surprised this go vernment sou uie people oi mil siaie. a ou nave, nevertheless, intimated, that in case of our ac quiescence in your demand, we shall be permitted to evacuate this island, which neither is nor ever has been a part of the united States. Allow me to observe to you, gentlemen, that from the moment we took r ernandina by the lorce of our arras, we entered into the full posses sioa of all the nshts appertaining to our eiimv. and to this day we have suppoi ted these rights at me nix oi our lives ana fortunes. The boundaries between the 1'loridas and the U. States, having been fairly settled on the fth October 1795, we are at a loss how to ascertain your authority to interlere n our internal coo renin. Our surprise increased when 'we reflect that your communication come as authorised by the government oi a people wno, in inn respect, gio rv in the ritriis or nations, whether rreat or small, and who, no doubt, sympathize with their southern brethren in tne struggle lor liberty and Independence, in which they are engaged, as were the Uaitrd States, forty years ago. , On the other hand, yoe promise to hold sacred such of our property as wtquettwnably belongs to our citizens. Who is to be the judge in that case t The United States i They caa by no means usim bdj khkj oi junsaicuon, irotn tne source oi uie river ot. mary - s down to toe ucean, on this side the centre of the channel. We en tertain too much veneration for your Constitution to believe for a single moment, tbat yon (supposed already in possession of this island which has sever been ceded by the king ot Spain, or by its inhabitants, to the United States,) can bring with yon a competent tribunal to decide upon this Question. Theonlvlaw voo can ad duce in yoar behalf is (hat of force, which always is repugnant to a Republican Government and to the principle of a just and impartial nation. The same observation may be applied to your interference for the property of the inhabitant, which we nave always respected and considered as sacred. You order us, also, at if we were (object of vour government, to leave behind,. when Fernandina is eraceated, all the public property thnt wu louca at its surrenoer. i mi aeaana directly contraiy to the puMic right, by which puhhc property captured from the enemy is a - vowedly that of the captors, when not otherwise stipulated. Are yoe acting in the name of tne king of Spain or of hit aihes .' As we consider the people of the Unjted States to be unquestionably the only free people on the sarfaco of the giooe, we cannot admit that you have already arrived to such a pitch of detradation. Otherwise your demand is inadmissible and unjustifiable ia the e ves of the world ; and if we must t ub - nm u it, au in oiame rests witb yon. . - Permit me, therefore, gentlemen, to, irrroest you to lay before the President of the U. State me rrmarxs, in order that a matter of so serious a tendency may be du'y coaiidered We have read bis exellency message with the utmost concern, and have concluded that Uie rwli - tieal aiUaliosi ef thi repobjio bat bet gretUW misrepresented in . the Ulniea etaies, uu" the intrigues of ear enemas, i We have certainly a right to be heard t for which purpose, I shall have the honor of forwarding to your government the necessary documents, . u yoe are ooi o;.j - sed to let the thing remain in statn quo, until the - A.t. fck.. itafratntiaa ba known.

The vessel cannot answer the ciime complained of, and i otherwise in a most horrible situation, to what she appear ed to be the dav before, when under wav. I have been informed Austin, the arcressor, is still at Amelia, and seen io public Vessels sailing Irom thence cannot, thereiore, complain Of trouble, if strictly searched to find him I and any vessel tailing with him will be liable to seizure. Trusting; (hat Austin would be tent to hi vessel. (the Tantiva) the privateer Jupiter wai released, although euilty of conduct that would sanc tion her detention and trial. As to the oaths of men, saying the scbr was within one hundred and fifty feet of Amelia beach, I myself cannot put confidence in from what I saw ; and am assured by the officer and men, that she was much nearer the north shoals, or breakers, than to Amelia, Their attention was narucularlv called to that cirrumstance at the moment of difficulty. Their oaths will be given when required by the court. i nave tne noaor, ate. JNO. H. ELTON. Gen. L. Aury, Commanding at Fernandina. No. X. Head - Quarters, Fernandina, November 15 th, 1817. SIR Your letter of this data was duly received. 1 regret that the positive orders I had given for the prize master and the crew going in the vessel have been eluded, and it was only after the vessel had gone I got the information. If any of those you demand are to be found on the Island, they will be sent over to you. Order are issued alreadr for the purpose. The privateer Relumpago has come into the waters of the Republic. As to the distance the Tantativa was from the beach of Amelia, it will be decided by the court that will try the case ; but I am induced to believe, from the respectability of the evidence, that it is correct. 1 have the honor to be, 8. AURY. , Capt Elton. Copy of a letter from captain Price to captain Elton. SIR I hope you will pardon my presumption in troubling you upon this occasion, but being necessitated to make my situation known to somebody, I have taken the liberty to inform you that I am the master of the British schr Betsey of i ortola. wno was taken on the 31st of last month by the Mexican privateer Brutus, capt. Job, on my passage Irom Havana to St. 1 no mas. I took the liberty of mentioning my situa tion to the officer that boarded the Tantativa, isl - tand schr. outside of the bar, on board of which vessel I was put by the orders of the captain of the privateer, to proceed to this ton. i ester - day I wu liberated from being a prisoner, in con sequence of which I have come to St. Mary's, expecting to find some person humane enough to assist and relieve me, in order to enable me to get to any Britbk settlement or colony; bat I am sorry to say that as all appear to live by the spoils of Amelia, their sentiments, I presume, to be much ef the same nature. It it impossible, sir, for me to describe the wanton cruelty exercised by the pnvateersmen Although the cap tain ol the privateer assured me that I should not be plundered, yet have I not only been depn ved of the greater part of my cloathing, but also of my charts, quadrant, spy - glass, and every other instrument, whereby, a master of a vessel, I am to get my living. Not only this, but the seamen were plundered and ill - treated ; and one of them had a rope put round his neck and received a most terrible stretching, in order to extort a confession whether there was any cash on board or not At present my situation, believe me, sir, is very critical whatever little rash I had I have been deprived of by the crew of the privateer, in consequence of which I have taken the liberty of addressing myself to yon. who, as a seaman, can form an exact opinion of my present situation. 1 ne bouse of Uhavts, Denniston ( Co. at Jamaica ; Bos worth, Den - niston ft Co. at New - Orleans, or Gilbert Robinson, esq. of New - York, will answer any demand tbat my present situation may oblige me to make. Should you yourself be kind enough to assist me in this emergency. I shall consider myself fore ver obliged to you ; if not, if you will be good enough to direct mo to your agent, to whom you may uepeoia, sir, snail De repaid, witn many tnanxs, wnaieveri may receive irom nun. lleataining, sir, your most obt. scrv't, WM.
