Shit Columhi t, > At sea, May :10th, 1H43. ) Sir : The numerous duties incident to the recent trans fer of the Mediterranean squadron, from my command to ; that of Commodore Morris, have hitherto precluded me the pleasure which I now avail myself of, of expressing the satisfaction 1 have been impressed with at your ear nest co-operation and support in accomplishing the ardu ous duties of the squadron, and promoting the interest and i welfare of the service, by your good example of subor dination and rigid adherence to the discipline and eti quette which have characterized the efficiency and good order of the squadron, and which my successor has no- | ticed so favorably in general orders. In thoso expressions of gratification at vour individual course of duty, I must beg to include the officers and crew under your immediate command, who have not failed to imitato your good example, and attain a charac ter tor subordination, nigh cfflcicncy , and propriety of de portment, thai the most critical cannot but udmue, and thi! most fastidious be pioud to emulate. It were unnecessary to say with what deep regret I have parted from the beautiful squadron which so lately engrossed all my care, at tho very moment when the successful completion of our labors in establishing its discipline and efficiency, and the unavoidable but pain ful austerities of command and disagreeable parts of practice had so happily terminated, leaving nothing to interrupt tho duty we owe to the service of our mutual country, or to disturb the harmony and friendly feeling existing among so large a body of officers anu crews But I do assure you, that in the now command to which I hnvo accoded, 1 shall carry with me the most grateful recollections, and ever cherish tho attachment which 1 now entertain towards yourself and tho officers and crew under your command, for the distinguished and faithful manner in which they nave discharged their vari ous duties. With my kindest thanks to yourself and them, and my best wishes for the happy and honorable completion of your ctuise, 1 remain with respect and esteem, Your mobt obedient servant, ? (.'has. W.

This letter wa.-. road in Court, and identified by Com moduic Morgan, then undei examination as a witness on the part of the accused, as the original letter addressed by him to the accused. Being a part of the record of tho proceedings of the seventh day, and interesting, too, I have procured a copy for your paper, in connection with the other proceedings of the court. Washikotom, D. C., July 3d, 1813. Ninth day of the proceedings. The Cou;t met at the usual hour; the journal of yes terday was road, corrected, and approved. Tho exam ination of Lieut. D. T. Porter continued on the part of tho prosecution. The following quastion was proposed by tno Judge Advocate : " Diiryou have any conversa tion withMr. Griggs, the pilot, when you anchored on the tail of the Horse-shoe, or on the day after when you went up tho bay, and what was that conversation V- It was objected to by the counsel for the accused ns illegal. The Judge Advocate referied to some authorities for the examination of the counsel on evidence. The question was postpound until to-morrow, in order that the counsel for the accused should have time to producc his author ities to substantiate his objections to the admissibility of tho question. Lieut. I'orter thus proceeded in his testi mony on the part of the prosecution : The wind blew about a single-reef topsail breeze ; sometimes a little squally. On Monday, the 17th, when the attempt was made to got under way, toward sunset the wind moder ated. The ship could have been got under way, if the messenger had been dogged. Croti-examined by the acruscd.? From the entries in the log-hook and together front my recollection, I have stuted the condition ol' the wind and weather on the 15th, Kith, und 17th of March. The wind on Monday was a single reef topsail bree/.e, as I have stated before ; the anchors were sometimes hove short before we called " all hands" to weigh the anchor ; the orders of the Secretary of the Navy to Captain Voorhecs, were made out in my presence, and I heard the Secretary give orders to send them otf immediately ; this is the reason of my knowing that orders had been sent by mail to Captain Voorhees; the Secretary did not send a duplicate of iiis order* by me to Captain \ oorhees ; I undertake to relate fully and accurately what passed between Capt. Voorhees "and the pilot ; I did not participate in the con versation ; 1 was officer of the deck ; I was officer of the deck when the pilot came on board, und as such I at tendril tu the general duties on deck, and at that time I was stationary; Captain Voorhees had given me some ordei m relating to the pilot, and I was standing by him for further instructions. After 1 lett the deck at 4 P. M.. 1 was on deck again three or four times between that and sunset ; 1 was on deck, I suppose, at different times, one hour alter I P. M.; 1 do nol recollect hearing any conversation with the pilot or of there being any be tween him and Captain Voorhees at that time . I do not recollect of Captain Voorhees being on deck alter the pilot came on board ; I think he sent once for him into the cabin ; 1 was not present and of course did not hear what passed between them there ; I was on deck when the ship came to anchor on the llorso Shoe, after sunset, ami nol again till my watch came on in the morn ing ; I was on deck when the ship came to anchor on the Horse Shoe, ten or fifteen minutes ; it took about that time to bring the ship to anchor. 1 do not remember whether Captuin Voorheeis was then on deck or not ; I know eftlie men being pad oil" only from rumor; I speak of the men whose times were out, and were discharged at Annapolis ; I think there were from forty to fifty ; it was the purser's business to make out the accounts and pay them off'; Captain Voorhees passed through me the order for the lieutenants to punish the men at Ports mouth, New Hampshire, before we sailed; and was in. serted in the order book fire or six days after the order was passed through me, and also before we sailed ; I proceeded to make "all sail'- as soon as the pilot came on board, and squared the yards about an hour and a half afterwards ; judging from what the pilot told me we were about twenty-five or thirty miles South and Last of Cape Henry light ; he said he had not seen the light, however, for many days, and as it was foggy, he did not know the position of the ship ; the studding sails were not up when I came on deck, but were up when 1 left the deck at 4 P. M. Question. So far as your experience in the navy extends, is it not customary for lieutenants to punish the men without reporting them to the commander ' The Judge Advocate objected to this question. The counsel for the accuscd stated that the Court always objected to a question, because the Judge Advo cate always stated his objections to the Court. The Judge stated he merely said it came under the same objection as a former question which was ruled out by the Court The Court was ordered to bo cleared. The counsel for the accuscd mentioned to the Court that he had offered to submit his reasons in writing to the Court for offering the question. The PaEsinEMT said ? " Verv well, I know, clear the Court immediately ;" precluding Mr. Cox from present ing his reasons or objections. The Court was cleared, and on re-assembling, the Judge Advocate informed the accused, that the Court :onsidered the question ruled out by the previous de cision on a question proposed to Commodore Charles W. Morgan, (which was not ruled out) but declared not admissible in its then form, and the question was modi lied and admitted. The counsel calling this fact to the mind of the Judge Advocate, he proposed to alter the record so as to read that the question was objected to in its present form, which was granted and done. The question was modified as follows " According to your experience in the navy, has it been usual for captains to allow lieutenants to inflict punishment for minor offences, without reporting to the commander AM.maR. ? In every ship I have sailed, lieutenants have had authority from the commander to punish the men a dozen over frock or jacket for minor oflences with a small piece ol rattlin stuff without reporting to tho commander. There was no differ ence on board the Congress from this practice I have spokan of, except that the lieutenants were restricted to six lashes. I have never navigated a vessel into Hamp ton ftonds; the only means I have of knowing the depth

and width of the channel is when the soundings were taken, when we were going into Hampton Roads from Annapolis with tie Congress; we beut up with a N. W. wind and tucked a great many times, and from my recol lection we takced in five fathoms always, and there ap peared to me to be plenty of room for any sized ship to work in; the ship was beat inrt that time, and Mr. (iriggs was the pilot; tho course I thing was w. by N. When we beRt into Hampton Itoads, the last stretch from the light boat brought her into the Roads, the tide drifting tier up very fnst: I think we anchored off the Potomac af ter we left the Horse Shoe; the wind was about N. by ] W., the course wnstothe southwai <1; the courses change from light bnnt to light boat, and the number of course down I do not know ; I think the distance was about (Hi miles, or n little oror, from where we anchored to the Ilonds. 1 1;/ thr Com t. While we were at anchor on the tail of Horse Shoo there were two or three light boats' lights in sight; I din not enquire as to their names. Hy the Judge Jldroratr. -I have never seen any order in any order book as the one in the order book of the Congress. I have known a custom in 'hips I have sailed when lieutenants punished the mon with tho colt for minor offences ; but not for all offences ; 1 could have no means of knowing whether such au order was established, as the order would be given by the captain to the lieutenants, and the Congress is the first ship in which I have sailed as a lieutenant; I do not know positively of any such authori ty being given, and only presume it, because no lieuten ant, in my opinion, would take such authority, unless it j was given; I know it has been a custom as long as I ran ! remember, since 18'Jfl. (The President thought the wit- I ness whs somewhat inclined to stretch tho blanket a lit tie, or was heedless in what he was saying, and iutei rupted him at this moment ; but the witness replied he knew what he was about and would only state what lie j remembered.) The Judge Advocate thinks reporters were i always useful, but not always correct.

BtSrKOTT. ( apt. V. informed me on Friday afternoon the 14th of March, about 4 or ft o'clock, that he had received such an order, ami that he wished me to get the ship ready. I told him I had nothing to get on board but the officers' j mess stores, and that 1 would get them on hoard that morning, ami it was done. Ne*t morning (.'apt. V. in- I formed me that the men had not yet been paid off whose times were out, and he could not sail till Monday. On , Monday morning as soon as the crew of the captain's , boat got their breakfast, I sent his boat for Capt. V. and hoisted in the other boats ; before Captain V. got . alongside, about half-pa^t 10, we had a fair wihd blowing j very strong ; when he came on board the pilot rematked he would not like to get under way the wind wax blowing ! so fresh; 1 remarked to < apt. V. that 1 did not believe the i messenger would weigh the anchor. He told me so soon an 1 could, he wished me to get under way; but to be j governed by the pilot. A little alter 1 I'. M. I went t* | < apt. V. and informed him the wind had lulled some, and that 1 thought I now could get the anchor up; the pilot was also willing to start. Capt. V. said, "very well, do so if you can." i then said, there were some officers yet to j come on board, who were m a schooner, and it had been I driven to leeward. Me said, " never mind them, we will I not wait for them, us I am anxious to start if I can, they can join us by the steamer at Norfolk.*' I had all hands called, and commenced heaving; the wind freshed again, and blew quite strong, and we could get in only a few links of the cable. I was fearful of parting our last messenger, and concluded to stop, and reported the same to Capt. V., a part of the messenger being made of an old stream cable we had on hoard. On Tuesday morn ing we got under way, and proceeded down the bay. I do not know whether the purser had paid of)' the men, or not. Mr. Fleming acted as purser's clerk. I do not know what was the wind on Saturday. Tho ship was always prepared to proceed, except hoisting in our boats and weighing our anchor. I do not know why we did not proceed down the bay, more than what ( apt. V. told me, he twas waiting for 'the purser. 1 think the Capt. came on board on Monday, about 10.90. I despatched the boat at *.30. Tho distance was four mile* from the shore, Had Capt. V. beo'. on board about six, we might have got under way; the wind at first .vas light; 1 do not think there any de!.?y after the boat reached the landing. I do not think the bout could go and return again short of two hours. There was nothing I know of to prevent Capt. V. staying ou board that night. (He is a married man.) We could have carried three reef topsails, if we had got under way on Monday. By thet'orKT. ? We did proceed with despatch after we left tho anchorage on Tuesday. All the officers were not ou board on Monday. I do not know what S emission Capt. V gave them ; the olticcrs were Mr. lair, the gunner; Mr. Jeflries, and the Cants, clerk. They reported to me when they came on board that they had returned. No other means were within our power at tliut time to get the ship under way then, but by slip ping the cable. The mcKsenger parted the last time wo got under way, at the farts ut Norfolk, and we slipped. In going up the bay I do not recollect how often we took up our anchor, kc.

The witness was then allowed to proceed to state as fallows : This letter is in my hand writing ; Capt. V. signed it; I saw him; I wrote this letter on board the Congress ; I do not recollect the date; it was about a week after wo crossed the equator, on our voyage home, ubout the latitude of St. Thomas. It was written by the direction of ('apt. V.. from a dralt in his writing '. It was all written excepting thu date " March 12;" the figures "fifty two."

When 1 say the date , I mean the figures " 1J" ? all the rebt of the date was written. The blanks were all filled on the evening of i oui arrival at Annapolis. It was euclosed to the Secre tary of the Navy the same evening by Lieut. Porter. ? The papers marked O. and T. weie enclosed in the let ter, and are the same as referred to in said latter. The marks G. and T. are mine; the latter portion of the letter was written at the same time as the rest of the letter with the exception of the words before noted. When the Con gress anchored in the Horse Shoe about 8 o'clock in the evening, I heard the hail of a vessel passing, but did not hear the word; f heard the reply; it was from Captain V. as follows : " This is the U. *8. ship Congress, bound to Annapolis." 1 know Mr. Origgs, the pilot; heard the hail because hetoldira so. By the Accused ? 1 had the ship's books on shore at Annapolis, and other officers were detained with me from going on board by the Imd Weather; the officers were Mr. Blair, Mid ihipman Jeffries, the gunner, and sail ma ker; there was brought to the U. b. in the Congress 9 or 10 prisoners and witnesses as near as I can recollect; I do not know what the crimcs were they were charged | with; 1 u.i 'ersiood they were engaged in the slave trade; the United Statis Marshal took charge of them at Anna polis, up'1 carried them to Baltimore; the accommoda- I tions for < 'apt din Pendleton, who was one of the prison ors, were a chair tnd table on the inain deck between ; the guns, near the entry of th"! cabin door; the two mates messed with fie forward ol'icer.aiidthe rest mess ed with the crew.

Well, yet it don't seem to? the witness proceeded; Captain V. ordered me to leave the date of that letter of the litli blank, so as to be filled up if we should arrive at Anapolis, if not 1 could write it over again; I brought letters to Captain V. once, and asked him if I should leave out the place, Sir. ; Captain V. said if we did not go to Annapolis I could write it over again; Captain V. told me that Commodore Turner had given j him orders to go to Norfolk at his own request before I we left Rio de Janeiro; I went into ' aptain V.'s cabin 1 between 10 or 11 o'clock, when thu Congress was an j chorod off Capo Henry, and askeJ Captai.i V. if he was I going to Annapolis; he answered that lie was going to | Annapolis if the wind was i:ot fair lor Hampton lloads, j und that it depended upon tl,e wind whether he should go ' to Annapolis or not. Br the Court ? The vessel lie hailed while on the j Ilorso Shoe 1 do not know whether she was bound up or ; down: 1 have no other direct information from Capt. V. ! about his going to Annapolis that I have stated to the | court; I heard Captain V. tell Captain Pendleton he was j going to Annapolis in the cabin on the voyage home, and | before we got to the coast of the U. S.; I did make an \ attempt to ge* to the Congress oh Monday, in a schooner { which the other officers and inj --olf hail employed for i that purpose; but made no attempt on Sunday. I Bv the A? i i ?KD ? I heard the whole of the conversation ' between Captain V. and Captain P.; Captain V. inform I ed Captain P. that he should probably go into Annapolis, ami asked him if that destination would be inconvenient to him and his crew ; lie replied no; that the counsel he wished to employ resided in Baltimore, and that he thought it would be better for him to be tried in Balti more than Norfolk; that lie would rather be tried in New Vork, as liis owner and friends lived there; I waited on Sunday for the ship's boat, and took the earliest opportu j nity on Monday to go off to the Congress; if there was a I ship's boat ashore I did not know it. A question that was j pir>ented by the Judge Advocate to l.ieut. l'orter a lew dnv? since was called up to-day; the counsel remarked ; that the judge hud informed him that he had laid aside 1 the qnertion Hlto;j<sther; tlio judge replied that he had thought on the matter, and now felt disposed to put the question; tti<- iudge had prepared four sheets foolicap of argument, citations quotations, Sic., Sic., to impress upon the court the utility, necessity.

The counsel for the accused made his written objections to the quosuon, as well as a reply to the Judge Advo cate's ji\rum?jnt; the court was then cleared, and on re assembling the judge informed the accused that the question was admissible.

Extensive Fraitd.? We are sorry to learn that a deeply lnid and extensive scheme of villanv hasbeen successfully practised upon some of our merchants. The particulars are as follows:? An individual who for some | time past has carried on business in this city, has been ! in the habit of buying goods of our merchants, with the 1 ostensible object of exportation. By punctual pavment, he had succeeded in acquiring a large degree oJ confi- l dencc, and he was believed to be doing an excellent busi 1 ness. lie was trusted freely and readily by a number of our host house?. With this reputation, he, within t he last fortnight, purchased goods to a very lurge amount ? ostensibly tor cash ? promising to pay on the 1st of July, and in some cases giving his checks on banks, payable at that date. The goods, with the exception of the pur chases at one house, were all delivered. In another case a house succeeded in tracing the goods to New Vork, and the principal, having his sr icions excited, prompt 1> pursued them, and tinder leg.il advice, succeeded in lecovc ring his property. It is said, but not generally believi-J, that the pur.%ha?or of the goods has made his est ape to Kurope. A deep conspiracy is thought to hare c listed in relation to tli.s transaction, and the creditors are determined to investigate the matter thoroughly, with a view to ustice. Too much credit cannot bo awarded to the gentleman who by his activity, perse verance and moral nerve, suc>.i eded not only in recover, ing bis goods, but in tracing many features of the plot, which, it is hoped, will assist in the complete develop, nient of the foul and complicated s<-iienie Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock, the thermometer at i the Kxchange stood at M degrees.

They arc five or six in number, and though the access to them is difficult, they are much visited. About 4 o'clock P M. the party nut scattered along the stream, and four or five had made their way to the uppei well; of this number was Silas Oermonfl. about is yearsot age.

Trip up the Kennebec, Augusta, and parts adja cent ? The Trade, fyc. ? Great Country for Eggs. I promised such of your readers as choose to fol low me, during a short tour, that in my next I would give them a description of the romantic scenery of the beautiful lake, where this letter is dated ; but as my stay will be prolonged to another week, I pro pose to give them in its stead, a slight account of ou r trip up the Kennebec, and stay at Augusta. Kind reader, in our last, we left you as we stepped on board the beautiful " Queen of the East," the " John Marshall," with her gentlemanly commander, Capt. Brown. Sup|H>se yourself now entering the mouth of the noble Kennebec, .iust as the sun tips the eastern hills with gold, and summons man to his task. We pass swiftly up to Bath, stop five minutes, and are off. Here are several steam mill? for lum ber, about a dozen ships, barques, brigs, &c., now building. On our way up, the eye, at every point catches some object of interest ? the rock bound shore ? ship yards ? bays ? steamers, ?fcc., all lend their charms to make up the scene. We next stop at Gardiner, and, as we i?ssed the wharf of the "old line" of steamers, our captain told the gaping agent to have patience, the " new" boat of the " ola line," would be along in five or six hours. Here we stop ped ii minute, and in ten morp were at our berth in Hollowell, the present head of steamboat (of this class; navigation. Augusta is two miles above here, and 1 learn that.another year steamers of 800 tonswill ch to that place. For years the navigation of the, Kennebec has suffered for the want of a ship channel from Vaughan's Point to Augusta, 2g miles. Alter years of importuning to Congress, without success, the town of Augtiota appropriated last winter, ten thousand dollars for this purpose, and I learn th it two enterprizing Yankees, (live Yankees can do anything, und had Archimedes been a Yankee, he would have blushed to ask for a fulcrum, to tip over this little hall we live on.) from New Bedford, Messrs. G. Randall, ana J. C. Has kell, have contracted to cut a channel from the wharves in front of Augusta to Vaughan's Point, five eighths of a mile below Hollowell, 7 feet deep and eighty wide, at low water, for the $10,000. There will still be about one hundred rods to the present I channel, which has the depth of water. This can b? cut through a flat,(drv at low water, )for SI, 000, which will be raised in two" hours by these "Yankees." ? If these persons who are constantly petitioning Con gress to "widen," " deepen," and " open" channels, in our rivers, would just raise the amount required, and let Congress alone, they would much sooner, and at less expense too, gain the desired object. With a little perseverence and " Yankee ingenuity," for nearly three miles, now navigable lor vessels of one hundred tons, there will be a broad, deep, and safe channel, capable of taking steamboats of eight hun dred tons the whole distance. To Augusta, this will be of inestimable value ? here is one of the lar gest and best water powers in the world, and by this a vcsspI may load in New Orleans wit;, cotton, or Philadelphia with coal, and unload it into the factory dtThc k'ennebec dam is situated at thin place, and is capable of driving the spindles o* t?tone?e^u^h ? cover a space equal to New ^ c ok _ city. lt^w bum in lXW>-7, and cost originally about $388, <MW- it ? was partially carried away)n 1839, and rebuilt jjpmfe same fall, at a cost ol about #02,000. ine water commenced round the "locks," on the west, rising during a freshet, and in five minutes more. sueh wa. its force, th#t a hole was cut ^ feet below On this canal stood a block ot mills ouuieei long? sixteen in number, which the contractor was 10 deliver the next day, which closed his contract lor the building. In ten minutes more a channel was cut twenty feet wide, through which began pour the whole waters ot the nvernow Bwonen by recent rains. In live minutes more these mills were in atoms floating down the river, a?d such was the power of the water, that it wore into the west bank , 5K ii,.. tajta* .bo?t l?l t J 1? ?' ^*55* such rapidity, that people had but tune to escap< out of their back doors, ere their . house ? witfi all their contents, went plunging headlong over the bank, a hundred teet. I often, in form" ^ny ' travelled where now there is nothing but empty air, 300 feet from the present bank, and 100 trom tn water below. It was a scene of surpassing gran deur. The pond made by this was precisely th' thing wanted by the company round which to est their mills beyond the reach ot freshets. And its ?d is also of solid rock, without which no dam could be made to stand; for want of which the old dam was lost. The loss of so vast ? amount of property, which at first damped the ardor of the owners, proved their greatest blessing The company, however, failed, and it hfts till thi. season lam nearly useless. A. company ^ ton have purchased it, together wjth all , tte tag" ind land. Thev have already laid the foundation for a block <>f cotton factories, and are at this mo ment dig" Mg a canal one-eighth of a mile along where the rond formerly was. They dig this icani il bv lettine w.iter through the locks where they can control it (not round ihc end as when the west w*?8 was formerly carried away). This force ot water is equal to, and will dig as fast ?),00p men cou d^ The length of the present dam is 810 feet ('"cludinc locks capable of raising vessels ot 200 ? tons, 1050 fe?t) It is filled with ballast, save the new part, which is wood. The base is 127 feet; height lo feet- and flows the river back 18 miles, covering about 1,500 acres. Here is the best water power in the world, and nothing but the former selti8h M)r did legislation of this State can arrested the present improvements, which must be the making o ^ gusta in time, and make it what LoweU now is. The vallev of the Kennebeck needs a home mar ket lor its agricultural products Besides the grea numbers of fat cattle and fine horses, owing tc , he increased demand for the Boston market, and the for the purchase of eggs, calves, lambs, - Pgult^ of all sorts. The quantity of eggs pollecedand sent bv the boats is immense. This is well tor ui farmers. 1 learn that eggs cannot be brought into Boston on the railroad without damage. Should the present demand therefore continue the vail, y ol 'the Kennebeck will beceme one vast hen-ery. It is estimated that the boat takes 1?200,d"?,T2 fti*l trip, which gives the enormous amount of 7?W doz. in seven months from this region. Not les than 1,000,000 eggs go annually trom lere to . Bo ton, which at 10 cents per doz. amounts to #10, This is a great world for eggs at least. Btaft Sing. I Correspondence of the Herald- 1 StNO St no, July 5, 1846. A /fit) >x ?" At Stale Prison.
