From Si. fary'. By the arrival of the Dri ver, we learn that the small privateer or piratical schooner lately scuttled and suuk m Jekyl Sound oaa been, raised and carried into St. Mary's. She. is ascertained to have had no interest in or connection with the other schooner which wat recently sunk in that vicinity. The circum stances under which the latter vessel was sunk, are somewhat mysterious. It seems a strange boat, with uwfflcd oart, arrived at St. Mary'sone night lat week, aud was detained by the sun boat. Her crew represented themselves to nave Deiange J to a schooner, prizo to an independent privateer, which that afternoon bad been uprct in a tquali aud sunk ; but a written paper was aiurwanu uucoverea in the bottom of the boat, giving a particular description of the vessel's thurttiou, the depth of water the wat in, hor beariogs, Jtc. wlii'.h induced the suspicion of her having been iun intentionally, and that the was afterwards to be raised. The top of her masU were out of water, and upon one fcf them a small signal. She was reported to be a Span - ish vefscl, hut from various circumitaucea she is believed to be a Swede or Dane, reported to have 40,000 specie dollars on board, and a cargo cf silks, A:c. worth $7000. This mystery will probably soon be cleared up, as the U. A', brig 6'aranac was to have sailed from St. Mary's on Tuesday morning to join the U. S. schooner Lynx, when the would be ta. - dy raUed, though iu 7 fathoms water. COMMERCIAL. Extract of a Utter from Havre, June 6, received by the Cyrus. " The numerous arrivals from the V.

It ap pears that there were pnrsous auiniig those loyal citizens who did not approve of the proceeding, an I eipiessed thiir sent ments iu the utual way, by luci and groans ; and these were so often re iwate.l, tl.rit a real lo$al man could no Ionrer keep his tear, but went to the cUcnling party to expostulate, a'ld w is received by aknoilc - dowu hluw.

During this transaction tbe batllo became gene ral, and tlierreate't confufio'' prevailed. Now it v happened, that, for bo first lime in hit life, Mr. Dixon was wrong. The gentleman he col lared was not a discontent, but had appeared early .11 the nc4d, to prevail on one of the Uifou teuts to de. - ist from diattirbin the harmony of the evening, and had so got mixed up with the bat tie, a to be by bnih parties very s vtrely ltd. 11 J nose lied, and his hii t an J waistcoat were turn. 1'htn ended the loyal livery dinner, amida none, riot, and cmfu.imi ; and it was not spent, at reprrscutcd, with haruioi.y and conn - via!ity., From tht Lherprvl Courier.

' ( . From the New - York Columbian. Last Saturday, as a carriage, with a gentle man, several ladies and children, was driving down the hill at West Farms, commonly called Brown's Elbow, the horses took fright, and at the turn near the foot of the lull, the carriage by its velocity overset and was dashed into a thousand piece - . Fortuoately no lives were lost, although all were much bruised, and one lady had her arm broke. ' , There would be tome difficulty in ascertaining the number of cripples living that this borrid hill has made, without taking into consideration those it has hurried on beyond the grave ; and still we are compelled to travel over this hill to towo, or go twice the distance by way of King's Bridge. If the Harlem BridgeCompany seriously wished to oblige tbe public, they would run their road to the west of Walker's house, strait to where it now crosses the Bronx niver, by which they would have a level road, aud avoid this danger ous hill, with several others, and lessen the dis tance one third, aud which csuld be doue for hall the niouey that bat been expended on tirowu'i E.bow.

Mr. Poulsnn Theimpoiitious practised upon strangers by the porters who atteuJ our steam boats, are disgraceful to our city, artl call nloud for redress. Charges of a mast cxhorbitant nature, are made for trifling services, and it is not unusual to see from 50 to 100 cents extorted for Uie porterage of a smsU trunk. The policy pur sued by the depredators in question, appears to le, to get as much by one jvb, as wul enable them to be idle all the rest of Uie day ; and as ihey are persuaded that strangers would rather submit to imposition than to insult and law suits, they never lad to extort. If our couueils do not Uiink it worth while, for the credit of the city, to regulate the charges of steam boat porters, the owners ol the steam boats ought to interfere. They should establish a fair and equ:tafle rate of charges, a table ol which should bo' placed in a conspicuous part of the host, and Jo porter should be allowed to euter oa board, wMo would not render himself subject U - uch regulation. Such a measure adopted by ei ther of the boats, would give a decided preference to that boat j for thm is scarcely ius individual in the community, who would not be willing to lend hit aid towards the suppression of a practice to outrageous at the one complained of. Should thit appeal, however, to tlie interest as wrll as to the justice cf the sttatn - boat proprie tors, bo disregarded, there is no remedy left. Strangers, whom we ought to protect, will couti - nue to be imposed upon. Our city will suffer in its character, an t we shall raise up a class 01 gentry, who will idle 23 hours every day upon the earnings of one. As an example of the impositions complained of, you will do the public a service by publishing the fullowiuj decision upon an action trough: yesterday before alderman Bartram. Philadelphia, July 24, 1013. F rt. ALLEN. The defendant wat a porler who attended upon the steam Boat Philadelphia. A gentleman received a travelling leather trunk, by the boat, on Thursday, and ngreed to pay the defendant fifty cents, lordetivering it at a house which was distant about ttventy - tive minutes walk. This was the price at which a man. horse and dray, cWd be hired to haul 10 or 15 times the weight, for the same distance, and at which a packieol 'louble the weight could he transported to lleor - ia. On arrival at the house, the trunk was delivered to a lady, and in the absence of tho gentleman, the sum of seventy five cents was demanded for the porterage and paid. This action was brought for the recovery of the twenty - five cents extorted over and above the sum stipulated to be paid, and the defendant having nothing to pls - ad in dei'enre, but his misunderstanding the distance, and the right which he slated the Porters possessed or tinrgvig what thef pleased, when the distance was great. Judgment was entered naninst him,' and the amount of debt and costs, (eighty seven and a hall cents) was, at the request of the plaintiff, deposited in the Charily Box. , A tew examples like this would, in a great degree, save our citizens from bting imprxed upon ; Vid at to strangers, if neither the public authorities, who owe tlirm protection, nor the owners of steam hoat, reit gsf their money, will have any regard for their pockets they iust erer continue to share tbe fate of the mau who fell among 'Ju!y25, 1813.

E. & E. Flagg, was entered by a lad of 17 years of ago, who took a small irank cootaining about 70 in money, with notes aud other papers to the amount ol one or two thousand dollars. The trunk was secreted in a hhd. of sand until evening, when it was taken out, the top broken sufficiently to admit a person's hand, and to get the money. The trunk was then thrown into the mud, and about ten o'clock ou Thursday morning was found in the sound, one mile to the eastward of the light - houe, contain ing all the papers. The boy has confessed the transaction, aud is bound over for trial. Coroner's refnrrt.

Jiat. Adv. Third concert Lait evening the third and last concert of (he three firtt promised, was giveo at the theatre, to an auJicnce equally numerous and fashionable, to appearance, with either of the preceding. We shall still adhere to a resolu tion which we have already expressed, to ab stain from saying any thing that can be construed into a preference of any one of the performers over the other ; though we certainly are not vithout our partialities and strong ones too, and uch as we think we could amply support by the rules of musical science and good taste. Bat for obvious reasons we shall keep them to ourselves. We beg leave to ray, that to encore a song three tiaies oa a repetition of it a second uight, is fluffing our ears with rather to much of a good thing ; and certainly defeats tbe effect intended. Two more concerts are to be given, one to - mor row night and the other next Monday, a' the re pealed solicitation! of the audience. We beg to express a hope that a little more attention should ho paid to the telortinns. MA It KIEL), At Brooklyn, on Saturday evening last, by the Rev.
