The barque Adario, Captain Brown, arrived yes terday moming, in thirty-six days i<assage from Sierra Leone. The kindness of Captain Brown has placed us in possession of the Liberia Herald and Africa't Lu minary to the latest date. We have also received a letter containing the particulars of the capture and re-capture of a slaver, and the horrible butchery of the English prize, officer and crew. This letter.; gives an account of the attempted re-capture of another slaver, by the same bold and inhuman slave-crew who perpetrated the above mentioned butchery on the high seas. It is gratifying to know that the murderers are now on their way to England, to expiate their crime on the gallows. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Sik.rra Leonk, April 17, 1846. On the 26th ult. the Tnixton anchored off the Pongo, whither she had been dispatched by Commodore Skin ner, who had received intelligence of a slaver being there under American colors. On arrival, they found H. M. steamer, the Ardent. The commanders immedi ately entered into an agreement of co-operation. Six boats ascended the Pongo?four English and two Ameri can?the former commanded by Lieut. C. H. Johnson, the latter by Lieut. Blunt. About 25 miles up the Pongo, in a small creek leading from the river to Kaber's (slave factory,) two vessels?the " Dos Ilermanas," Spaniard, and " Spitfire," American?were discovered, both se curely moored. All the boats carried English colors, until the Spitfire showed her flag, when Comd't Blunt hauled down the English and hoisted tlio American. The crew of the Spitfire informed against the vessel the moment she was boarded, and made no opposition to her being seized. The vessels were captured at the top of high water, and were carried down with the next ebb, Lieut. Johnson's boats assisting in towing the Spitfire, notwithstanding ho had the Dos Hermunas to manage. The most perfcct co-operation existed between the two flags during the whole of the expedition. The Spit fire is a handsome clipper schooner of 95 tons burthen, sails remarkably well, and left on the 6th inst. for Bos ton, for adjudication. On the 11th inat. a slaver with 460 slaves on board en tered this port under the command of Lieut. Stupart of H. M. S. Wasp. This vessel, supposed to be a Brazilian, and called the Echo, was on her way to the Brazils when captured by Lieut. Stupart, who had just captured in the "Wasp"an empty slave schooner. Lieut. Stupart trans ported himself and some of the crew lie had with him to the Echo, leaving a young midshipman, Palmer, with ten men, on board the other. Scarcely had the transfer taken place when the schooner bore down on Lieut. Stupart and fired three rounds of grape into hiin. Lieut. S., not withstanding, got away from her, and his fears respect ing a recapture on the part of the slavers has been but too certainly corroborated. Lieut. Morris of the Ardent arrived here on (he 15th inst. in the steamer Albert, from Ascension, and gives the following intelligence:? Three days after the capture above alluded to, H. M. 8. Star fell in with and recaptured the schooner. The Captain of the schooner and another volunteered (on the discovery ofsundry articles which were soon recognized as having belonged to some British men-of-war's men,} to, give information of the circumstances that had talcen place. They deposed to the following The deponents with some more, did not take part in any part of the pro ceedings, but the whole was planned and canied through by the commander of the Echo, who was ably seconded by the cook. He, the Captain of the Echo, promised the crew ample remuneration if they would join him in mur dering the Midshipman and the Englishmen, and that they were certain of recapturing the full slaver as she was a dull sailer, and that he had agreed with the Boatswain oi his own vessel and those of his crew left on board the Echo, to mutiny the moment they saw the peak of the schooner's mainsail lowerod, which would be the signal of their having recaptured the schooner. The details are too horrible to relate; suffice it to say that none of the captors, twelve in number, had arms, and that the twenty-five pirates overcame them and butchered them all without an exoeption. The instant the cook discover ed that information was given; he jumped overboard and drownrtl himself. Twelve of his companions are in irons and awaiting at Ascension the arrival of the Rapid, which left this port yesterday afternoon with Lieut. Stupart on board, to convey the prisoners to England for trial. [From Africa's Luminary to March 16.] His Excellency the Governor returned on tho 7th in stant, from a visit to the leeward settlements. While at Sinoe he completed the purchase of the whole Sinoe country. The commissioners appointed by the Governor to set tle a dispute between the chiefs of Little Bassa, and to complete the purchase of the whole country, succeeded fully in carrying out their instructions. Tho whole Bas sa country is now the bona fide property of the colony. The chiels also agreed to have no more drril palaver. Not long ago, a deer was killed at Cape Palmas of an unusual color, and very singularly marked, being white from the top of the fore shoulders backward, including the fore and hind legs. Forward of that point, the head, neck and ear* down to the brisket, were all perfectly black ; in appearance, at first sight, like a black cape thrown over those parts. The horns were smooth, and dangerously sharp, as some of the dogs pursuing him had sorry experience, two of them being killed. On being started, he betook himself immediately to the wa ter, trom which he could be dislodged only after death. A brig with 475 slaves, prize to H. B. M. ship Wasp, arrived at Sierra Leone April 11th, and a arge Brazilian brig with more than 600 slaves on board, prize to H. B. M. Albatros, arrived 15th April, and over 100 of her slaves died after their cainu.e. The U. S. ship Jamestown, Commander Cunning ham, arrived at Monrovia on the 1st of March from Port Praya. The U. S. brig Truxton, Commander Bruce, had left Monrovia for the coast. The Liberia Herald says that the U. S. sloop of war Preble has been most unfortunate as regards the health of her crew. The last intelligence from her S'ves seventeen as her loss by death, and seventy on e sick list. News from Caw ad a.?Livingston & Co. have furnished us with the following letter, giving the state of affairs in Canada. Montrkal, C. E., May 34, 1846.?Tho pait week hai produced little of commercial and nothing of political importance. There are rumors of ministerial change*, but we can trace them to no authentic source. We have heard of no alteration in the health of Lord Metcalfe. The province enjoys an unusual share of political tranquillity. The news bv the Knglish mail involved tho flour market ia a still deeper depression and hope seems fairly to have abandoned the holders. A few days before there was a little local speculation of which but a few took ad vautage, and escaped with a shilling or so of less loss. About 30,600 barrels of flour have come down since Saturday morning last; to-day's quotations are '.Ms. 6d. to ?J.Ho. 6d.:a sale of superfine is reported at -23s. ad. Wheat is in tolerable demand at 4s. a. to 4s. 10^ per 60 lbs. In Ashes, pearls are worth 34s. 6d. to34s. 9d.; pots are down to 23s. 3d. to 33s. and 6d. ** Freights do not maintain the high rates expected.? Flour to the Clyde has fallen 6d. per barrel, being now at 4s. To Lonaon and Liverpool it is still at 4s. 6d., but with a downward tendency. For Ashes 37s. 6d. to the above ports. The dry goods merchants are very busy sorting and piecing; and there has been a very fair demand at some considerable auctions,both for them and for groceries for local consumption. There areas yet very low tipper Canada buyers in the market. The prevailing opinion is that thoro will be a bad business done, nut many people think that very opinion will tend to prevent its being realized, by checking credits and speculations and fall imports. It is believed The stock of last fall's imports on the shelves of the dealers in Upper Canada is very heavy anil the indebtedness to the merchants here is large. The low price of flour will materially cripple the means of paying. Money continues very light and im practicable except in the best paper and to a limited ex tent. We continue of opinion that the real amount of discount is as large as ever, and that its scarcity is com. parative,arising irom the extension of business beyond capital. There are a few failures in the Upper rrovince, but none of any consequence here. The comer sionc of the new ( ongregational Church in Radegotido will be laid this afternoon, (Saturday.)

A purse of about $400 is to be presented to-day to Capt.

Horrible Murder.?We have received informa tion that a most horrible murder was perpetrated yesterday morning a short distancejrom West Chester, upon a lad named Wesley Patton. The murderer, Jabez Boyd, a young man of about 23 years of age, camo yes terday morning, shortly after 10 o'clock, to the house ol James Patton, a respectable farmer, residing about a mile and a half north of West Chester, and found his son Wes ley, a lad of about 14 years of age, at home ill company Willi a bound servant girl, who was attending to Mr. Pat ton's youngest child, the rest of the family being at church in West Chester. The villian immediately fasten ed the doors, and then seized the tongs and attacked the hoy, whom he beat upon the head so dreadfully as to fracture his skull suid cause death. The affrighted servant contrived, while ho was doing this, to put the ohild out el the window, and following after herself, escapcd to n neighbor's, where she gave the alarm and procured as sistance. On arriving at the house, it was found that the villain, after murdering the boy, had thrown his body into the fire, which burned on a large open hearth, anil then robbed the house, which he succeeded in doing by forcing the closets, in one of which he obtained in Sold and notes, and with this booty he decamped. The ody of his victim, when discovered, lay partially in the fire, and the flesh was entirely burned from a great por tion of his head and shoulders. Search was in stantly instituted, and finally Boyd was arrested at the house of his father, about a mile from the scene of the murder. When [taken into cus tody he denied the commission of the crime ; but the lin en pantaloons.that he wore had evidently been partly washed in the endeavor to eradicate the stains ofblood stilj visible upon them, and a clot of blood lay upon one of his boots. He was immediately conveyed to West Chester, where he is now in confinement. Boyd is re presented as being a man of bad character, and was im prisoned three years ago in tho West Chester jail, from which he escapcd. He denies having been at Patton's house for two or three weeks, 'uut was observed to be loitering about the premises on Sunday last by Mr. Pat ton himself. A great excitement has been created in West Choster and its vicinity by the perpetration of the revolting act.?Phila. U. S. Gazette, May '26. Important Decision.?Judge McKinley has de livered a judgment in the U. S. Circuit Court, which is of importance to persons engaged in commerce and to revenue officers. The case which called forth this deci sion, was the United States vs. William Pitcher. it ap pears from the pleadings that the defendant's vessel had entered this port from a foreign one, and was boarded iu the usual way by an inspector of the Customs, who took charge of her so far as pertained to his duties as a reve nue officer. Before leaving her on a certain night ho fastened down the hatches with a tape and wax, sealed? the general way. When he came in the morning, he found tho seals had been broken, and suit was entered in the U. 8. District Court against the captain for the penal ty, in sucli cases, prescribed bylaw. Judge Mccaleb, the District Judge, found for the United States, and this was an appeal from that decision. In presenting it to the Circuit Court, however, the only question put forward, by consent of parties, was, whether tape and seals?as the William and Klizabeth had been fastened?are a pro per fastening, within the intent and meaning of section 64 of the statute of 17*9 of tho ltcvenue Laws, which go verns the cise. The Judge decided that they are not. ? The act says tho hatches in such cases shall bo secured with " locks or other proper fastenings that is, as he interprets the act, with locks or some other fastenings as strong and ell'ective.?N. Orleans Pic., May 16. Emigration.?A party of 150 emigrants from Lon don have arrived at Keokuk via New Orleans. Se veral of them have from one hundred to five hundred pounds sterling. They intend making a settlement, as agriculturalists, in some one of the new counties, and will purchase at once, if an eligible location presents it self, some two or three thousand acres of government land; alter which, if successful, more will annually fol low. Most ol the individuals composing this party are members of the British Mutual Aid Immigration Society, estahluhedintliewe.it riding of Yorkshire in 1843.? There are now existing branches of this society in a thorough organization in London, Manchester, Birming ham, Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds, and elsewhere, like wise the British Tcinpcranco Immigration Association, or ganised at Liverpool iu 1843. The latter socioty made tlieir selection ol lands in Wisconsin territory, on the waters of the Wisconsin river, near the site of Helena, and auout twenty-five nules north of Mineral Point. The first party of emigrants, belonging to this society arrived in May 1844, and their last semi-annual report represents theii success and prospects in the most favorable light. Immigration.?The population of our Territory is at prestiiit receiving a very considerable accession in tue number of immigrants who daily and almost hour ly land upon our shores.

There is evidently a great improve ment in the class of this immigration over that of lormor years?a result not unlook?d lor; and us gratifying as it is natural.
