Mar 6 Onr reader will doabtless recoUact our having nahliihrd a few dav iince. an account of the kw of the snip Mary ft Betsy ,of Charleston C which it was stated founderad in the latitude of the Grand Carman. 00 the 3d Dec. laat. on her pat ace from Baltimore to New - Orleans, aad when attempting to gain the Mutouito thorn in th loog beat, 25 oat of 38 on board, perished. Two of tt crew arrived here in ti Mary, 1 ate, from Honduras and two others arrived 00 Sunday latt, ia the favourite, Shaw, from the tame port. r torn circumstances which nave tine transpired it I suspected the account poblithad, and wrucn wa given by the two first mentioned seamen, is a fabrication. - There can ba Kitle doubt that the ship 1 lost, but ia what manner cannot be ascertaiaed perhaps, until alt - gal investigation is had upon the subject. It is to be hoped tbat the story of the iota of so many lives may provs to oe untrue. Wa learn, by Mr. Belcher, who was on board renr. reoruin, 01 pi. Toric, on ine coast or era til, that on the 8th of February, a mutiny broke out on board that rettel, in which the cayU was wounded with a tabre and handpike, but got into the cabin, where were the armt and the am - muuilioo, ami where be, the lupercargo, doctor, mate. Mr. B. it wad and boy, secured thfnv selves against the seven mutineers, who held the rest of the rettel, and the water and provmon. At length the mate wat sent up to negotiate, but ba was seized, bound, and thrown mto the tor' castle. Tbera were about 1 1 0,000 m sperie on board s but lbs mutineer taul they did not want the money, bot only revenge 00 the captain, for what they called ill - treatment and they meant to carry the vestal into oma port, where they would nave Justice. 1 her, at length, however, came to a compromise, agreeing to take $ 100 each to defray their eipenteo home, and written discharges from the vcsmI, which were given 1 and they spiked the two larg guns, put the tailt aback, anil left the veiitl in the long boat. Their names are John Maxwell, an American, Mal colm ratton, a Scotchman, John Johnson, an Englishman, John Roberts, do., Magnus Vin - thip, an American. John Fraiccr, cooper, a Scotchman, and Walter Bray, carpenter, an En glishman. It appear tba mutineer landed at raraibo, aod were afterward arretted, and iuprifoned at reroambuca, to ba rent to tbe U. a. by the first I, for trial. A very novel scene was exhibited last March, in Liverpool, (England) which greatly amused several thousands of spectators. It was the tight of a Curricle, to which four Cats were harnessed, that drew Mr. Uther, the clown of the circus, (in the carriage) 751 paces, in nine minutes and a half, to the great astoniih - ment and gratilication of the spectators. After the rats had performed their travel, they were oiiharncMtd aod ratted in the air, for the view of the unmo crowd, by whom the cat were greeted by loud and repealed huixas ! S HUDSON. Mav 5.

On this head we shall offer no opinion we mrrely state feet. Ccaioos laciDKRT. The following relation it riven by ecntlemen who were witnetwt of the fact while going up James River, on Friday last in tbe Steam Boat Powhatan. In passing Day1 I'oint ttw.y oorerved an t.ACLr, which, alter hovering aboat the thore lor some time, made a tudden dart into the water, where lie remained out of sielit, about two (econda. and then re - ap pran - d bearing in bit talout a Fitb apparently three feet in length. In a minute or two, how - over, he plunced again Into the water, and again appeared with bit prey. Thu operation he re prated a second tint tti'l holdinz the fish in hit cluwt ; a third lime be decended with it, bat wa teen no more ! The conjecture was. that the fca gle had got hit talons (0 deeply inserted in hit scaly prise that be could not txtneate thtui, and his strength was not tdtuuale to bear it a way to the shore. . Ciublutos, April 28. Darinf Outrage. K French Gentleman, who arrived in this city from Savannah, on Friday last, as he wa reluming from the Theatre to his lodgings on the Bay, between the hours of ten and eleven o clock, was unexpectedly, in the most treacherous and base manner, attacked, ai the corner of State - street and Unity Al ley. by a person who, unperceived, came up behind him and gave him a violent blow on the back part or his head with a D'ujgeon, which felled him to ihe rrouud; the assafsin then drew a poignard and attempted to plunge it into the prostrate gentleman's breast, who was fortunately shielded from the murderous in - tent by his pocket book, which wa in hi tide pocket, dlunned snd stupiiied tr ine oiow lie had received, though nut totally deprived of hit faculties, vet. from the obscurity of the oifcht, he was prevented from dUiing - uishing all precision, the viiluui who baa commuted this atrocious ami dastardly outrage againsi both himself and the community. From some circumstance that hare since occurred, and the leral step taken by the in lured person, there is some 1 10 pes 01 in is ne farious act bring: brought to licrit, and the per - pur.ior receiving that punishment wiin is due from tbe violated laws of the country, to so unprincipled and inhuman a m - joster.
