Tbe examination was conducted, firm beein ning to end, by gentlemen, who, for the advance meut of learning, volunteered their services.

By thi mode of condiictiug the business, the acquirements of the scholars were fairly tested, la literature the classes were questioned, touch - ing Ihe progress made in grammar, the elements ol language, the analysis of sentences, reading, and the outline of chronology and history. Such as bad studied t reneb, were asked to show their knowledge in that tongue. In tcieuces, they displayed tbe information they possessed in a riUimetic and numbers several were found to have studied geometry, algebra and mat hematic ks, and to have their minds well stored with the phenomena of natural ami experimental phi losophy. The young ladies then showed their acquaintance with geography and astronomy, by the globes and mar.

This unfurtunate being, when restored to his fritnds, was quite ignorant of the events of the French revolution, and the couruliioa of Eu rope, for the last 25 years which grew out of it. 1 bis, we doubt not, is oos of the rarest instances of liberation on record, and we are glad to have Uiis opportunity (through the kind industry of a friend,) of U)iog the particulars before the A - meiican public. We beg the reader to excuse any MiiTne in the style wliita may be met with, owing to the literal translation that hat been attempted : tlie extraordinary facts set down may perhaps compensate for the delect.

An auUn - atic relaimn id tbe dreadful tortures which a poor FretKliman, (I'etsr Dumon,) eufltred hi Alrica, during a slavery of thirty - four irs. In the year 182, being 14 years old, I left Paris, my native city, to follow, as a servant, le chevalier d Ternay. Wc embarked at Brest, on board ot II. M's. hi:, I due d Boursogne, which wa sent to America. A few days after our arrival nt Khode Inland, where M. ue 1 er - nay died suddenly, I went lo oi, iwhmlnpe ; Irom theuc to Giliraltar, and from Gibraltar to St. frorhk, v here I was employed in mootieur couut D'Artoii' equipages. I slarttd with M. Mont - merry, who had received an order to join the French iquadroo, then blockading We embarked on board of his majesty's brig, le Lie - rre, cf 14 guns, and alter a stormy piisage, we were shipwrecked oa the coast of Africa, between Orao and Algiers. Tbe crew of the brig consisted of 140 men, half of wboa were drown ed, and the other half massacred, by the Arabians of the Coubaly tribe 111 excepted, (among whom I wat one,) who had presence of mind e nousb to hide until day. Arabians don't allow ihcauelvt to kill in open day any on who de clares himself their tlave. At soon at the Ara bian perceived us, they seized us, and we were compelled to walk with them six nights, (tbey never travel in day time,) till we arrived at sr.: ly't mountain, which it inhabited by Arabs ansof the Coubaly tribe, and which is the resi - dt:c of their Cheyk. Hie bouse is situated upon a bill ; it it the only one in tbe whole country ; the other Arabians encamp under tent. After w were presented to the Cheyft, whose name was Schyd Solyman, who has an unlimited power over all the individual whom the tribe consisted of, we ware chained two by two, and duriug 28 years, consequently I have been coo deisacit lo support mgbt and day witn my mise rable fellow chain - mate, the weight of fetters which made ot inseparable. Every morning at four o'clock, th slave were taktu out to work s sometimes at us mines, sometime at clearing; the mountain, or cuttin? down limber, or ploughing the ground. We were bound to work onU twilight, and we bad not any other rest hot to smoke during a qnarter of! an boar, some tooacco w cooid pica ap a tne fields by tbe way. In tbe morning wbea we Were getting out of the Bagne, (that it a large and dark orison, where bur tbonsand men who were csofixd, bad for beds, only a little straw wbkh they could bring along with tbem, where never penetrated a ray el tbe tun, or any light wnaie - ver !) we each received two rell, which were black, tough, and very often mouldy, and tome rotten olivet: this was our only meal every day. We bad but once ia tbe whole year (the day of the cu - cuascif ton or the children of the trtoe; a small I'iece of meat, and a little broth. If any one of us, harassed with fatitue and hunger, dis continued working a few moments, tbe chid guardian threshed him unmercifully. In short, to miserable was our fate, that (not one day ex cepted) two or three were found who had killed them t Ives. 1 remained 28 year in tbis dread ful situation ; my life was constantly uniform ; I am roiur to rive the recital of the only incident which happened to me during the whole of that time. . i A Marabou, (so tbey call a Turkish monk,) who wat travelling through the country where we lived.rave ut in aunt 30 sequins, f about 200f.) our chief guardian wanted to get his part of it I was the only one who relused rivm? him any tiling. Filled with indignation on account of my refusal, be treated me every day in the most cruel manner. Every morning, when I was getting out of the Bagne, he overwhelmed me with injuries and blow. Tired of such a lire, I resolved to put an end to it by taking vengeance on my persecutor, whom I determined to kill at tbe first blow be would rive me. I did not wait a long time for tbe opportunity of executing my purpose ; tbe next day when 1 was going to work, he came to me and began to strike me ; I went back, and having seized a large ttone, I threw it against hit face, and beat the right eye out of I bis head. 1 was instantly turrounded by Arabi ans, who tied me to a mule ; and alter having been threshed in a dreadful way, I was brought before the cheyk, I happily had learned to speak Arabic, and I wat able to explain to the cheyk the motives of my conduct. ' I made binv per ceive the cruel proceedings of the guardian to wards me: the cheyk, penetrated with the justice of my nemonstrancef, condemned him to be banged - ; then, addressing himself to me, which baud of yours, said he, has struck your enemy ?j lie has infriuged on the Co ran laws, and has suf - fared bis punishment s now you must suffer rours. At I foresaw the chastisement I wat re served for, I answered, I bad thrown the stone with my left hand, in order lo save the right - He then ordered the band which had committed the crime, to be tied to a plank, and struck till tbe skin and flesh were taken ofl, which wat ex ecuted immediately, in the most cruel manner. After I bad suffered this dreadful torture, with out being allowed to dress my wound, I was com pelled that very day to move round a mill ttone, wnicn I was concerned to do for a whole year. The Cheyk of the Coubaly tribe wat always at war with Ihe other tribes ; and when he wat forced to march hit troops against thi - mK he took along with him one hundred slaves to pitch the tents, to load and unload camels, and generally for the most tiresome and painful duty. I remained 2H years amongst these Barbarians, until the Bey of Titre, who wa tributary to the Dey of Aiders, after some aegociatioos entered into the Cheyk, bnd us conveyed into the country under his jurisdiction: we were then only fire hundred in number ; and walked eight days to get to Titre, where we remained about five month. The Bey told at to the Regency of Airier for a sum ol money, which was deducted from that ne was oouod to pay lor tut annual tribute. Al ter the bargain wat concluded, we set out, and arrived, after a four night's journey, at Algiers, wnere i remained a slave about six years. I wat liberated in the glorious expedition under Lord i mouth, to whom I owe my restoration to my country, after a slavery of 34 year. AtaaTiT, July 31 Phrtnxy A soldier stabbed himself, while in a fit of insanity on Tuesday, at the cantone ment. The wound was deep and expected to prove mortal. Every exertion was however made to preserve him, and hope arc now en tertained of hi recovery. We learn be wat a brave soldier and worthy man. Rocbxsteb, July 28.

Bostois, August 1. We learn from Gloucester that on Thursday an attack was made on the St a Serpent with harpoons Capt. Webber and others in a boat succeeded in hitting him twice, but owing to the thickness of his scales or coat, the harpoon did not penetrate.
