Ethan Allen, with about UO other prisoners, arrived in Sole bay, two gentlemen went on board to inquire into their situation, and to assure them ol the disposition ol sev eral gcnteinen in this city to alleviate their distresses. Colonel Allen wns so affected with this instance of un expected generosity, that the expression of hisgtati rade coiil J hardly find utterance. His treatment on board the Solchay is far different from the baibarous treatment nnd cruel usage he expe rienced in his passage Irom Quebec, being then hand- cufi'ed and ironed in the most dreary pari of the ves sel, and basely insulted with cruel and unmanly re flections by some of the officers of the ship, whom he challenged in Cornwall, without receiving satisfac tion. A subscription was begun this morning among some friends of the cause, and near fifty guineas collected to buy clothes for his men, nnd necessaries for himself; and if liberty can be got of Capt, Williams to put live Hock on board, 1 can assure you Col, Allen will be xceedingly well provided.
