Mr. McniiAr was a keou sportsman. On bis passage, under the direction of an old sailor, he pot a rifle hall into the heart of a Whale that wan ploying about the ship. In this country he hunted all kind? of game, Irotn the Wild Turkey to tho Buffalo.

" While this vessel was sounding this day between Gardner's and iMontnuk Point. n schooner was seen lying in shore off Cullnden Point, under circumstances so suspicious ns to authorize L'. Com. Ged ney to stand in to see what was her char acterseeing a number of people on the beach with calls and horses, n ml a boat passing lo am! fro, a hoit was armed und dispatched with an ofiicor to board her. On coming along Fide n number of nr groes were discovered on hor deck mid twenty or thirty mure w re on i no beach two white men rami forward and claimed I ho pro'ertion of theofficpr Tins echoo. ner provt d lo bo the " Aini-tnd."

Port Principe, with 54 blacks anil two pos-pngcrs on hoard; tho former, lour nights aftur they were out, rose and murdered the captian ami throe of the crew; they then took possession of the vom-oI with iho inteiiiion of returnmtr to the coast of Alrica Pedro Monies, na1- Fonger.nud Jose Rues owner of the slaves and a part of the cargo, were only Faved to navigate tho vessel. After boximr about for four days in Bahama Channel the ves sol was slppred for the Island of St. An drows, near Now Providence, from thence she went to Green Key, where tho blacks laid in a supply of water. After leaving ibis place, Iho vessel was steered bv Pc" dm Monies fur Now Providence, the nr groos being under thu impression that she was steering lor the coast of Africa they would not, however, permit her to enter iho port, but anchored every night off the CO.TFt. The situation of tho two whites was n this time truly deplorable, being treated with ihegreatest severity, and Pedro Mon ies, who had charge of the noiigalinn, was puttering Irnm two sevoro wounds, one tho head and one in the arm, their lives threatened cverv instant. Ilo was order oil in change tho course again for the coast of Africa, the negroes themselves steer ing by tho sun in tho day time, while at night he would alter tho course so as to bring them back to their original place of de-tination. 1 hey remained three days off Long Island, to tho eastward of Prov'i donee, after which time they woru two months on the ocean, sometimes steering In tho eastward, and whenever an occa sion would permit, Iho whiten would alter the course to the Northward and West ward, always in hopes of falling in with borne vessel of war, or being enabled to run into some port, when they would bo relieved from their horrid situation. Several tunes thoy worn boarded by vessels, once by una American schooner from Kingston. On iIipso occasions lbs whites were ordered below, while the no groes communicated and traded with the vessel; the scliouuer from Kingston sup plied them with a demijohn of water, for the moderate sum of one doubloon this schooner, whoso name was not nscertnin- od. finding that the negroes had plenty of money, romaineii laotieii alongside the "AniMad" IV, r twenty-four hours, though they must havo neon aware that all w"as not right on hoard, and probably suspected tho character of tho vessel that was on the Idtli of tho present month; tin. ves-el was steered to tho northward rind we-t-ward, and on the 20ih instant ; distant from Now York 55 miles, the pilot bout N. 3, canio alongside, and gave the te grr.ps foiuc apples. She was also hailed by No. 4 ; when the latter boat came near iho negroes anted themselves, and would not permit hor to hoard them ; they were so exasperated -with t lie two whites for bringing them so much out of tho. way, that they expecied every moment to he murdered. On theS lih they made Monlauk Light, and hteered for it in the hopo of running the vosfol nslrire, but the tide drifted them up the bay. nod they anchored where thov wero found by tho brig Washington, off Cullnden point. The negroes wore found in coinuiunicaiion with theFhore.wln.ro jthey laid in n fresh supply of water, and were on the point of sailing ogam for tho coast of Alricu. They had n good supply of money with them, some of which it is liKety as token by the penplo on the beach, after t hoy worn disarmed and Font on board front tho beach, tho ringleader jumped overboard with threo hundred doubloons about him, the properly of iho Cap'.nin. nil n which ho succeeded in Inns tug from his person ; and then permitted himself to be captured. The sch onner ivn. taken in tow by thu brig, and carried into new uoniiou." Tuksdav, 12 o'clock, A. M. Wp haveju.-t relumed fruiii a vtMlloiho Washington mid hor prize, which are rt ding at anchor in tho hay near the fori. On board the Ibimor we saw and eon versed with the iwo Spntiish gentlemen, who were passengers on board Iho schoo ner, as well as owners of tho negroes and most of tho cargo. Ouo of them, Joso Rups, is a vory gentlemanly and intelligent young man, and speaks English fluently. Ho was the owner of most of tho slaves and enrgo, which ho was conveying to his estute on tho Inland of Cuba. The other, Ptedro Montcs, is about fifty years of ngo, nml is tho owner of three slave?. Ilu wua formerly a ship master, mmwrMmi" "TTnwW"-irTIIII1 and has navigated the vessel, since her sci' I zuro bv the blacks. Both of them ns may he naturally supposed, nrc most unfeigned- ly thankful for their deliverance. Jose Pedro is tho most striking instance of coin placcncy and unalloyed delight we have ever seen, and it is not strange, since only yesterday, Ins sentence was pronounced by ihc chief of the buccaneers, and his death song chanted by the grim crew, who gath ered with upliltcd sabres around his devo led head, wliich. ns we.'l ns his arms, bear thoFcarsof sevorul wounds, Inflicted at ihu time of tho murder of tho ill fated Captain and crow. Me sat smoking his Havana on the deck, and to judge from tho martyr like serenity of his coutitonunce, his emotions arc such as rarely stir Iho heart of man. When Mr. Porter, the prize master, assured him of his safety, he threw his arms around his neck, while gushing tears coursing down his furriwcd cheek, bespoke ihc over flowing transport of his soul. Every now and then he clasps Ins hands, and with up. lifted eyes gives thanks lo " the Holy Vir gin" who had led him out of all his truu. hies. Sennr Rues has given us two letters for his agents. Messrs. Shpltmi, Brothers & Co., of Boston, and Peter A. Harmony & Co. of Now York. It appears that the slaves, tho greater portion ot whom wen his, were verv much attached to lnni 1 1 it (I determined nllur reaching Hir coast Africa, to allow him to seek his home what way ho could, whtlu his poor cumpaiiiou was to be sacrificed On board the brig wn also saw Cingtics, the master spirit and hereof this bloody tragedy, m irons. Ho is about five feet eight inches in height. 55 or 2G yenrs of ago, ol creel figure, well built, and very active. He is said to be a match for any two men on board the sc'iooner. His coun tenance for a native of Africa, is unusually intelligent, evincing ticcommou decision and coolness, with a coinpusure character istic ol truu courage, and nothing to mark Ii im as n malicious mat.. Ho is a negro who would command u N. Orleans under the hammer, at least ;500. Ho is paid to havo killed the captain and crew with his own hand, by cutting their throats. lie also has several tunes altcmp ted to take the life of Scnor Mnntes, and the hacks of several poor negroes are scored with the scars of blows inflicted by his lash to keep them in submission. He expects lo bo executed, but nevertheless manifests a sang froid worthy ofaStoic un der similar circumstances. With Capt. Gedney, the surgeon of the pnrl. and others, wo visited the schooner. which is anchored within musket shot of the Washington, and there we saw such a sight as we never Faw before and never wish to see again. The bottom and sides of this vessel nrc covered wilh barnae'es and sea-graFs, while her rigging and sails present an appearance worthy of the Fly ing Dutchman, after her fabled cruise. She is a Baltimore built vessel nf matchless mo del for speed, about 120 tons burthen and about six years old. On hor deck were grouped, amid various L'oodn noil aroi!-; llin remnant of hor Eihiop crew, Force decked m the most fan tastic manner in the silks and finery pilfered from the cargo. while others in astateofnu dity, emaciated to mere skeletons, lay coiled upon the docks. Here could bo seen n negro with white pantaloons and the sable shirt which nature gave him, and a plan ters broad-brimmed hat upon his head. with n string of gewgaws oround his neck ; and another with a linen cambric shirt, whose bosom was worked by the hand of some dark.eycd daughter of Spain, while his nether proportions were enveloped in a shawl of gau.-e or Canton crape. Around the windlass were gathered the three little gills, from eight to thirteen years of age, tho very images nf heallli and gladness. Over the deck were scattered, in the mot wanton profusion, raisins, vermicelli, thrpnd, rice, silk, and cotton goods. In the cabin and hold wen- the marks of the same wasteful destruction. Hor cargo appears lo consist of silks, crapes, calicoes, cot ton and fancy goods of various descrip lions. glass and hardware, bridles, saddles, holster-, pictures, looking glasses, bonks, fruit, olives and olivo oil, and "other things too numerous lo mention" which are nov mixed up in a strange and funiadtie med ley. On the forward hatch wo unconsciously rested our hand on a cold object, when we soon discovered it to he a naked corpse, enveloped in a pall ol block bombazines. On removing its folds wo beheld tho rigid countenanco and glazed eye of a poor ne gro who died last night. His month was unclosed nnd still wore the ghastly p.vpres t-mu of his last Ftrngglu. Near by him, like some watching fiend, Fat the most hor rible creature wo ever saw in human chape, an object of terror to the vory blacks, who said he was o cnnnibal. His teeth projee ted nt almost right angles from his irouih, while his eyes had a tuna savage and de moniac expression. Wo were glad Ir. leave I his vessel, as Iho exhalntiniis from her hold and deck, wero like anything but "gales wnfled over the gardens of Gaul " Capt. Gedney has despatched an express to the U. S. mar shnl, ot New Haven, while ho has made the must humane nrrangeinenis for Iho health nnd comfort oft ho prisoners, and the purification of tho prizo. There nro now nlivo -I'l negroes, three of whom nro girls; about 10 havo died. They havo been at sea (53 days. The vessel and cargo were worth jl-10,-000 when ihey left Hovaiin, exclusive ol the negroes, which cost from 20 to 30,. 000. Vessel and cargo wero insured in Havana. dipt.

G, SEPTEM BEIt G. THE ELECTION. We have the satisfaction of again an nouncing to our political friends the Iriuin pliant success of the whig ticket in Bur lington, in Chittenden county, and, wo doubt not, in the state. In this town, it will bo observed that we have preserved our usual wholesome majority of between 30 and 40 on the state ticket, ond elected our representative by a majority large enough to satisfy any man of ordinary ambition, liut however this may bo, it must amply satisfy the public as lo the political character of the town of Curling, ton. The Van lluren candidate, has been eighteen months in tho field, a man of note. and one of the most adroit political mana gers in the state. In addition lo litis he had formerly been n distinguished advocate of Whig principles, and coold even now pernaps cs'nii'tsli Ins orthodoxy in this particular; wb. e at the Fame time ho has been hacked 111 tins campaign by the com bined influence of two regular nominations and ail thu government pntronago in this part of tho state. Marshals, Custom house officers, post masters, breakwater agents, and all their train of mentals and hangers on. have come and gone at his bidding. The treasury of the nation has, for all practical purposes been at his com mand. On the other hand our candidate was, in farmer's phrase, an "untamed colt'' a young man, put into the contest against his own wishes, a man but recently a citi zen among us, personally unknown to one (lunrter of the voters in town, nnd in his fortune and circumstances perhaps not the man most likely to catch the popular breeza. And although a man of fine talents, nt,d of irreproachable character, lie has had to encounter the seven vials of administrotion wrath. Personally, politi cally, and morally, has ho been assailed and vilhficd, and for the first time in the history of our elections has tho haggard demon of sectariati bigotry boon invoked nor has she been invoked in vain though wc trust in God, soon to be laid. And yet, under all these adverse circumstances have wo triumphed, nobly triumphed; for winch we ascribe unto the "sober second thoughts of the penplo" and the abiding integrity of the wbigs of Durlitigton ull honor and praise. In the county wo havo lost ono member. Williston, which lost year elected a Whir by a majority of one, has this year elected a Van Huron man by a majority of to0l Huntington not represented. So that wo "land in the county 15 Whigs and 0 Van lluren members, und probably one wlii" nnd one V. II. Senator a whig majority of two on joint ballot. THREE CHEERS EOR FRANKLIN. With no ordinary satisfaction wo niu nounco the political redemption of Prank tin county. Last year, Iho county stood 10 Tories, and 1 whigs. This year the whigs have elected tho ten, and the loco focos have consented to put up with four. Gov. Jcnison's gain in four towns in this county is 200, Even in.Swanlon ho received a majority. That portion of the state from which wc have returns, it should be borno in mind, includes the headquarters nnd stronghold of Toryism. Addison, Rutland, Windsor, and Windham counties, will tell tho Biury. Wo have lost tho sonators in Orange county, but there is some renson to believe that ivc have made it up in Franklin. GOVERNOR.

(Whig, I 317 Lymoti, (Loco Foco,) 30U Scattering, 5 E' Majority for Baxter, 4 Of the scattering, three were for Whiga and two for Loco Focos ; adding the three bcattering to Baxter's 317 and it makes the Whig vote lorVown ReproFOii- 1 tutivc 320. Give the other two spfttir.r,n 10 Lyman, and it makes the Loco Foco vote 310. thus giving the Whigs a major ity often votes on the Representative tick, ot. This majority might have been swel led lo tinny or forty if certain disaffected Whigs had come to the Polls and voted for Uie regulaily nominated candidate of iheir party. We cannot omit lo mention in this place the unprincipled and profligate manner in which the Loco Focus have conducted in relation to the election in this town. There can be no doubt in the minds of all candid men, that there is in the town of Burlington a clear Whig majority of no less than 40 to 50 voles, hut owing to tho desperate means made use of by the Loco Focos, this majority is reduced to the mea. gre one of only 30. Nathan B. Haswell, a man who has grown fat from Government dribbling, the Breakwater agent in this place, who procloims openly, as we under stand, that no man shall bo employed to work thereon, unless a thorough going Loky, and himself the Loco Foco candidate for Senator in this county, led up or caused to be led up to the polls on the day ol elec. tion. some 30 or 40 individuals who voted tin' L-j Foco ticket throughout on that c ,. . Wo wish th,. freemen of the '"s.i o, llnriington to ponder well Lpon 'ln--e tacts. Candidates for office were formerly a lit- tlo more modest. km Mr u....nii throws ofi'all disguise in this matter, one urlice under the General Government is not enough for the man. But he must need? mike iisu of the powers thus temporarily. and we know not but eternally ceded bun by the General Government, to secure still another place of trust in our Slute Govern. incut. We call upon the freempn of Chittenden county, one and all to reflect for a few moments, upon tho immense Government influence with which they have had lo contend. And yet this is the man, who is so verv tenacious of his own rights (his right to a seal in the Senate Chamber at Montpeher, we Ftippose he means when he speaks so pompously of "my rights" and "my privi leges") lhat ho would debar a portion of the quiet and inufi'ensivo residents of this town of the most sacred of all rights, the right of exercising the elective frnnchiso where they properly and legally belong. On tho present occasion, however, wo havo triumphed gloriously triumphed over all the deception and frauds of nur adversoriea, over Government patronage, and over n cabal both by habit nnd inclination corrupt. lis a triumph, not of correct principles alone hut a triumph of honest men over old and intriguoing politicians. Tut BouNiunv Wo understand that Mr. Fursyth. Secretary of State, ha- transmitted to Governor Fairfield, tho. communication of Mr. Fox to the Govern- ment of the United States, relating lo. tho. mission of Col. Mudgn nnd Mr. Feather, Btonhaugh, by wliich it would seem iliac ' Ihe object is substantially what has been 1 alleged in the English papers. The Bri Jlish Government apprehending that ttict negotiations respecting tho establishment : of a joint commission for running the lino J might nut bo terminated until near tho I closp of tho present year, it was ihouht the mean lime might bo profitably spent by lhat Government in making a topo graphical survey, and ocquiring n, moro intimate knowledfo of tho territory in diiputo. Still farther since writing tho foregoing, we have obtained copies of the following: correspondence which has taken plao between Sir John Ilurvey and Gov. Fair, field. Suco Democrat.
