Returning; from Newburyuort into squain Harbour, on Wednesday last, iu a Che - bacco boat, where we had been for the purpose of obtaining fishing bait, and having failed or getting a supply, we were in hopes of taking some on our pastaee j and when off Chebacco bar, it being perlectly calm, we discovered tomewbat at Die distance of a mile or more, which we were in hopes was a shoal of bait, making a great agitation on the smooth surface of the water ; it seemed to approach u rapidly ; but as it came nearer, ws were convinced we bad been in au error, and that, what we took for a shoal of black fen, was nothin? less Uiau the bunches on the back of the celebrated it A SERPENT !

When we first saw him, there appeareu a nppunx ia iue water which made a noue not much unlike wa ter running rapidly over loose pebble ; 00 hit nearer approach, when we knew it to be the serpent, we imagiued it to proceed irons nu mouth, and it appeared as uiougn ne waa nis - siniT : but on his nearinz still more, we found it proceeded from the rippl. made by the bunches on his hack; it wa 12 o'clock, noon, when we saw him : the weather wa clear and the sea smooth, and no deception could have been marie ; 1ms head was of a dark brown color, formed like a seal's, and shined with a glossy appearance ; he seemed to be indifferent as to us. and went a stea dy coure for Rye beach about Ji. by W. and we lo.t iLHit of hiui at abeut 4 miles distance.
