More effectually to secure them, I took all m; men, except two and lha mate, into tho boat, and attended myself to facilitate the embarkation. Such unlimited confidence did I repose ia my tteward, that I confided those articles to his chartre when on board. On Ibo SUth tbe alarm lUMiueu, ana me wna - bitantt ditrmbarked.

Nothing lurther occurreu until itiarcn sin; when, about to leave the port, and every preparation making to expedite my departure, my vessel wat taktu possession of by the authority of the commandant of La Guayra.

PrtaJ From the Washington City Gaeette, May 6. JV military post on the Mtouri.Wt are informed, from a respectable source, that orders have recenUy been issued by our government, for the establishment of a military post the mouth of Yellowstone River, (latitude 48.) where it enter the Missouri, about 1,800 mile above Ft. Itwis. The contemplated ob ject of this poet, it is stated, is to control the communication of the Indian nations within the boundaries of the territories of the United States with the North West and Hudson's Bay companies : Lord Selkirk lias, it is said, become proprietor of both of the: establishments To keep open the line of communication betwixt Fort Clarke (at pretent the highest military post on Uie M ssouri) and the intended settlement at the mouth of Yellow, stone River, it is conjectured that two additional intermediate posts will be necessary; that is to say, one at the Great Bend, and the other at the Mai dan villages, a'jout 150 miles from, and due south of. the Britinli Factory the mouth nf the Moose river, where it en the Assiniboin. Thus'a complete check might be given to all attempts at violating the laws prohibiting the British from trading with Indian nations within our boundaries thi rendered the more esteiitiat at the present moment, in order to curb the views of the aspiring and ambitious Selkirk, who hae of late years given such a bold direction to the affairs the fur trade companies. Maior Bradford, with a detachment, or w riflemen, are ss'ul to be orde.ed to repair to this point, where a fort will be iltmediatety constructed. The Missouri traders will there by, in future, be protecied for Indian I ostilily and British interference in their lawful pursuit within the proper jurisdiction of the U - nited States. eiJurincr Lord Selkirk' visit at W aslungton last winter, he is said lo have requested permission of the go eminent to draw l;.. supplies provisions, for the ute of the North v est and lludion' Bav companies, trom ine uuuca States' territories, which proposal, we near, was immediately rejected.
