THE CAPTURE OF THE SLAVER AUGUSTA. Tit ? ' \i1c Augusts, seized i" Orecuport In Juno last, and condemned in October as a slaver, tiaa boon giving tho officials yet more trouble. Under th? system permitting bonding for appeal hor owners paid four thousand three hundred dollars into Court upon an appeal to a holier court , and thus ouce more obtained control of her. Mar 8b*l Murray not designing, however, that a few thousand dollars should buy a permit from the government for a vessel to go aa a slaver, requested Collector liarnoy to no tify him before giving her a clearance. At this time tho Augusta lay at the Atlantic docks, Brooklyn, quietly tak ing in stores, and the necessary outfit for aBlavor. Every thing being ready, in somo manner unknown at present, she obtained a permit to go to Oreenport, Long Island, without Marshal Murray's knowledge. Upon this, on the afternoon of Sunday, the 17th, she hauled off from the Atlantic docks, passed down through the Sound, through Plum Out, into Gardiner's Hay, anchoring under Oardi tier's l'oint about throo o'clock on Tuesday morning. Marshal Murry, learning that the Augusta had left, des patched I'eputy Smith to Greenport In pursuit. Marshal Smith reached Groenport on Tuesday afternoon at three o'clock. Appleton Oaksmith, the owner of tho AuguBta, was on the same train, and asked Mr. Smith what his business was; if ho was going to give him more trouble about his Teasel. On Tuesday night stores and small b >ats were romoved from Greenport to tho Augusta. On Wed nesday morning Oaksmith went aboard and told his men that tho Marshal was alter the Augusta, and that tboy must put to sea. Up to tli is time her seizure would have bocn easy ; but all this time the Marshal was idle. On 'Wodursday morning ho took a sail boat and went down the harbor Just In time to see his bird flying before n free wind to sea. Oaksmith, on his return, reported that his men had run away with his vessel. Marshal Smith relurnod to Now York on Thursday morning, Oaksmith taking tho same train. On Friday morning Surveyor Skinner, of Greenport, believing the Augusta to bo still in the neighborhood of Montauk, telegraphed to New York, and in a few mluutos received a despatch from Surveyor Andrews to soize the Augusta immediately, and after wards theYollowing from Collector liarnoy: ? E. K. D. Skwnkr, Surveyor, Greenport: ? Seize tho Augusta at all hazards. HIRAM BARNEY. The task had now by no means beconio un easy one. Owiioc to tho numerous employes ami friends of Oaktmiith In Greenport, Survoyor Skinner, with William Z. Kin g. Inspector of Customs., procee led to Oriont, live miles distant, obtained a coasting schooner, put a swivel and a posse of armed men on board, and went In search ?of the Augusta from that place. Tho schooner Bulrush, the one obtained, loft Orlorit at 12 o'clock noon of Friday just two hours after the reception of Surveyor Andrews' "message. The following aro the names of those on board the Bulrush: ? From ? E. E. D. Skinnor. Surveyor; Win. Z. King, Inspector of Customs: Hon jam in It. Kk inner. Firm Orient? Da iel Kartlett,* Henry C. Bradford, ?John Col ton ,? Itoniel B. Dickinson, Deter A. Halerman, Robert H. Thompson , Wm. (J. Wilcox, Isaac N. Winters J. Hon io Youngs, Napoleon B. Youngs, Elijah Rlxford,* Vector Vroman, Jas. S. Dewey. ? Crete qf llulruih. ? Smith 'Dewey, Captain; Henry B. Case,* Mute; Robert Van Geld on,* Steward; James A Pickett, Harvey Boebo.* Total, 21. Tho Bulrush made Hon tank I'olnt at four o'clock, and stood off an 1 on whilo a boat wont ashore. The lighthouse keeper re|x>rted that lie had seen a ship Wednesday evening (undoubtedly the Augusta) steering south under fore and main topsails, foresails and jib. The keeper Had watc hed her until dark with his glass, thinking it suspicious that a ship should fc'0 t' sea uuder such a sail. As this report agreed with the r u mots in Greenport, that l he Augusta had goi e to soa, tho prospects of catching her wore at this time any thing but brilliant. From Montauk the Bulrush passed lip t;n lur the shore to Quoguo, making the Quogiin light, at seven o'clock thirty minutes Friday evening. At fifteen minutes past eight o'clock stood about and put to tho ex-it ward, anchoring at eleven o'clock two miles from Alonuuk in Ave fathoms water, the light boarmg ton th northeast. The wind was blowing hoavy, so that the small anchor woidd not hold the schooner, and she dragged off Into eight fathoms water, when the largo an -chor was let go aud she immediately brought up Tho AuguBta was tlrst discovered from the Bulrush at half |ia-t nine o'clock, on Saturday morning, bearing west by south, stooring north-northeast, and sailing under close reefed lore topsail, double reefed main topsail, fore topmast staysail and main s|>oncer. In taking the Bui Tush to pursue the August i the design was to use strata gom , keeping the most of the men below, atul giving her ?the appearance of a coaster on h'-r usual business, so as to catch the Augusta at anclior or tuke her by surprise. At tho time of the first discovery of the Augusta the wind ?w as blowing a gale from tho northwest and tho sea run ning high, so that tho elements combined to favor this design, making it ap. ear that the Bulrush had anchored to make a harbor, owing to the gale. Tho Augusta passed tho Bulrush at link past tea, a mi'e and a half off shore, standing in by Montiuk until eleven o'clock, when eho wore ship and stood to ttie westward. At twelve, noon, the Augusta, having niie I foresail, passed three miles to le-ward, steering west-southwest. This was the same course which tho ship had taken on Wednesday evening, as reported by the light bouse keeper, and until Saturday morning sou had not boon back or be would have noticed her. It was, therefore, highly probable that the Augusta had again ?(Acapcd tho clutches of the law. To havo started in pitr ? lit wo ild have boon useless, as tho Augusta is tho ?fastest t ailer, and, oven if the Bulrush could have over taken her, it would have l>een lrn|>ossiblo to havo Imardod ?her, owing to the wind and soa. Nothing was left, there fore, but to remain i"iot and watch. It was to the great ?delight of those on board tho Bulrush, therefore, that at thirty minutes paat twelve tho Augusta was di -covered ito lie again wearing ship nnd m iking towards th m. To ctheir still greater delight, at fifteen minutes past two, *8ho aaeho ed lia.f a mtle to the leeward. From this time until early Monday morning, s >rm: thirty-six hours, the tress Is lay in nearly the satno relative position, the sea anil wind preventing b -a ding, although In the anxiety lest the ship might esc ape it was sovoi al times discussed and i?iti -l preparations made. At fifteen minutes [last five o'clock on Saturday afternoon pilot boat No. s passe t botwoen the ship and schooner. At eight o'clock on Sun day mo -ning a small schooner was undo out threo miles to th.), under the shore, near a clump of houses. At nine o'clock a schooner passe J M ntauk, undor close reeled foresail and Jib, southeast. At twenty mlnutos past eleven o'clock commenced wqjghing anchor, in king the Bulrush drag purposely neai ly at) east oi tho Aiiifusta, when, deciding it impossible to "board, sho was brought op. At fifteen minutes past twelve a whaleboat was token from the deck ?if the Augusta an I placed on its davits. At two o'clock what appeared to bo a ship's burgee was soon on Stral ton's, a house on the Men tank sh >re. Whether it related In any way to the ship cannot certainly be snil, but < n boarding ihe Aug isla a signal was cut from iter bow rig ging, and one oc'Tior crew H:iid they made out two nu n, ?one on e-toh side of the chimney, aud that they designed going ashore us s< on as it became calm to see what it meant. It is not probable that Mr. Stratum had anything directly to do with it: but as his house is a resort for boarders gunning on Montauk, it may have been arranged thro gh thorn on some pretence or another. It was, per haps, dc ne warn tho Augusta against tho schooner or give information of the Fire bland affair. At throoo'clock pilot boat No. 1, ru m New London, spoke tho Augusta .and pished between the shi.i and schooner. At hall- past three a large steamer passed to oast ward. At a little after midnight of Sunday , it having grown calmer and the sen .gone down, tho Bulrush commenced getting under way in order lo lioa d th" Augusta." Al half-past one sh:> was ?under full headway, and at two o'clock the Augusta was in the hands of the Surveyor. Those mat ked with a star In the I st of nimes of those on bard the Bulrush re roainel in rhnrgo of the schooner, the others boarding the Augusta. The Bulrush in boarding rounded to under tho stern of tho Augusta and came tip on the .?larboard side. As tl:e schooner rounded to .S irveyor Skinner 1 ailed "ship ahoy!-' No answer came to tho first hail. It was repuat-d, "ship ahoy!" when the reply came, '-ship ahov!" Surveyor Skinnor then said, "Wo are cming ab a d, and I give you warning that we are well armed, and il any one makes any resist ance be will bo shot down." To this came, '-What's that you savt" when it was repented. The second time gome one replied, "0, 1 gu sb you'll go clear." Surveyor Skinner replied, "We d- n't want to go clear: we are ?coming aboard.'' At this instant the anchor brought the Bulrush up, nnd her stern commenced swinging towards tho bow of the Augusts. On Inspector King asking tlieni 1 1 make a line rast, the reply was, "Goto holl, nnd make it tast yourself." J1 st after this the boarding commenced, Vroman beiug the first man aboard, Sur veyor Skinner tho second. No resistance was made, but someth ng said bout the right to come aboard. The ob ect was told, when Cnptal't Grant, of the Augusta, Bud s metblng about the authority, when Surveyor Skinner replied. "You know 1 am Surveyor of the pori of Greer, p >rt . which Is a ;thority enough." From that time tlio vissol was entirely under control of the officers. Sho was immediately got under weigh fnr Greenport. Nine men wore found on board , threo having left while vudor Gardiner's Point, among whom was N. N. Wells, who acted as pilot to that point. The names of thosi found on board sre ns foil ws:-rJamM Grant, cantaiu; Dennis Conner, Wats n Overton, John Overton, Henry Paun 'ers, l-'rnnk Ho'ton, J. F. Ryon. Wm. N. Douglas and Wm. N. Murphy. Tho names of all but the last three are certainly correct. ns they aro well known in Greenport. The ?otho s may not be so, but are tho ones given. Some of ?tho -co probably only Intended to go to Greenport or stay on b a.'d until anothor crew took charge. For instance, Sa indors Is the stevedore who took charge of tho lading in Brooklyn, and some think Grant and Conner did not intoud to go further thnn Greenport. There Is no doubt that tho men seized at I'atchogue with Appleton Onk s nith, while wailing to go aboard some vessel, were Ihe c ?< w intended tor the Augusta. At half-past one o'clock, while en her way to Green|iort, th" Augusta got aground o f Long Beach. At half-(ia?t six Deputy Marshal Smith caioo aboard with a libel, whilo sh- was aground. The Augusta war. got off nt nine o'clock the same ni -ht, nnd at eluvon was a ichorod off Greenport wharf. She was hauled lu to tho wlinrf nt 12 o'clock, noon, of Tuesday when the Surveyor sc aled her halchos. On Wednesday morning, about ten o'clock, two tugs, tho Achilles and Tiger, arrived within abOc:t fifteen minutesor o.icli other one from Marsha! Murray nnd tho other from the Custom House? to low her to Brooklyn. Surveyor Skianor tho gh -etuln ng possession of her. nnd, with Inspector King, remaining aboard, nt the advice or tho revon io mine i the Achilles, as the abler tug of tho >two, to take her in tow. The s.-nlence or Gor Ion, the arrest of Booth nod Oak ft smith, a id the sjexure of the Augusta, form a series of |>lowe at tho accursed slave tralllc in New York which it b to be hoped wWl quickly terminate it.

Alderman Krkkknt raised tin objection to tho amend ment, which he deemed a piece of special legislation, un worthy the dignity of tho Common Council. Aldorman Dayton defendod tho characters of Dr. Oris com and Mr. Penman. Alderman Bhahy charged Dr. Griscom and Mr. Den man with neglect of duly, and stated that they had be haved with mhumunlty to poor women and children. Tito amendment was carried, and then? Ali)erm?n Kromkwt moved to take the ordlnanco up by sections, which was adopted. A discussion then ensued in which Mr. Davto* defend ed Dr. Grlscom,and assorteiUhat tho appointment* made by the Comptroller wort- strictly good .and for the benefit of the city. Hut tho Comptroller did not desiro to nave anything to do with the'appoiutnuntH nor care whether the whole power bo given to tho City Chamberlain. Alderman Uk.xkt opposed tho Idea of the Comptroller having so much authority. He hud nothing to do with tho Comptroller except to receive his pay from him, and he thought the City Chamberlain ought to be associated with the Comptroller In the appointment of the ofllccrs and the distribution of the funds. The motion to associate tho City Chamberlain with tho Comptroller was carried. In the other sectioi s amendments were made to the effect that the w Ives of volunteer* should receive a sum not to exceed $'_' |>er week, the eldest child $1 and the other children fifty cent* nor week, provided that uo fa mily roceive more than $0 i week. Tho ordinance as amended was adopted. A communication was received from tho Stroet Com miss inner asking for an additional appropriation of $20,000 for tho repairs of roads and avenues, and was laid over under the rule.

At the meeting of the Board of Councilmcn last evening, Mr. Okton proposed an ordlr.auco making an additional appropriation of $250,000 for tho r?llef of tho families of the volunteors who left this city for the seat of war. Thu subject was discussed at length by Messrs. Or ton, Pinrkney, Barney and others. Mr. Ortox observed that this measure affected tlio interests of tho great republic, and if our soldiers came out of the present contest (which hoflrmly believed they would) with triumph, tho trade of the city of New York would receive an impetus which would sweep to the winds tlio paltry millions that the Common ConncIl expend in tho support of tho families of the volunteers. Mr. I'ixuknky, while In favor of the adoption of the ordinance, reminded tho Board that these large appropri ations would he inserted in the tax lovv noxt year, which would make the taxes enormous Ho thought tlu< Inde pendence of those who received support frr m the city was sacrificed, and said that tho soldiers, who wero spending their money for trifles, ought to give more sup port to their families at homo than many ol tlieni now d?. Mr. Bak.vev promised to amend the ordinance by ap propriating five hundred thousand dollars, nml in the course of an aide speech, expressed the opinion that one of the first acts which Congress will pass, will be to reim burse the city of New York, the sum or $SOO,000, which was handed over to thj Union Defence Committee for the pur [wise of equipping regiments to defend the capital. The amendment in favor of the sum of $600,000 wns adopted, wherouiton the various sections were taken up and d-.s -.timed. The ordinance, as amended and adopted, is a-i fo l'ovs : ?

Address to the peo ple of New Yor^T* Ac., dee. Tbo Mayoralty Convention of tl>e national democracy net last evening at Mozart fla'1. where an luimonae crowd of people Interested iu the proceedings were in at tendance. Isaac 0. Dolaplalne, Esq., was called fo preside, and de livered a very short aud appropriate speotU on taking Uio chair. Peter H. Jackson, E^q.,of tho Twontj*'Ar3t ward, official ed as secretary. After the calling of ths roll and the transaction of othor preliminary business, Sir. George C. Geuet took th>? Woor and proposod tho namo of Fernando Wood for Mayor, prefacing tho nomluatiou by a speech highly eulogistic of Mr. Wood, who, ho said, had proved himself iu every way qnaUQed by honesty, ability and enorgy of character to oc cupy the chair or tbo chief magistracy of this great metropolis. He therefore moved the nomination of Mr. Wood by acclamation. | An amendment was offered and adopted that the roll of dolegates bo called, and each person namo tho candidate of his preference. Tht> Secretary thereupon read the list of delegates, every one of whom named Mr. Fernando Wood as his choice The nomination wm then made unanimous amid tho Wildest enthusiasm, the delegates rising in their scats to cheer, and waving their hats and handkerchiefs in tokon of approbation. Mr. Genet moved the appointment of a committee of three to prepare an address from the Convention to the people of yew York. The Chair appointed Messrs. G. 0. Genet, James Crossman and Uunj. Hay as tho committee. Committees were also appointed to arrange for a grand ratification meeting and to notify Mr. Wood of his nomi nation. Tho committee on address reported the following:? ADDBKM OF THK NATIONAL PKMOCKATIO MAYORALTY CONVENTION TO T1IB PBOri.R OF NKW YOKK. Fbixow CrrizKXH ? This Convention, coinn red of dele gates flrom each of the two hundred and twenty eloction districts of this city, present with pride and confldonoe the name of Fernando Wood as our candidate for Mayor. Ho is not a now man to you. Of large public oxpcncuce ? of concodod ability ? of well tried fidelity to tho interests of al! classes, irrespective of birth, station, religion or (?otitic* ? ho stands before you as a roan of whom you may well Ik> |>r?ud. This is no t imc to makoexper Iments in the office of Mayor, Tho country is in a divided and disturbed condition. De magogues and fanatics at (he South and at tho North have precipitated up<<n us civil war, and brought this groat and glorious nation to the rerge of dissolution and ruin. Tills is tho hoart of the Amorican Union: what at' forts the extremities afTV'ets tho centre, and thus to an extent beyond our present appreciation may our metropn lis bo agitated by the present national convulsion. Growing out of this condition of affliirs unex pected events may transpire here. Financially, socially anil politically wo liavo everything at stake. Here at least, wo must preserve public order ? protect piivato property ? administer justice and maintain the dignity, the ma estv and the Supremacy of tho laws and tie: eon stitution. And to do so successfully, wo must have at the head of the Corporation a man of nerve, talent, cool ness and experience, like Mayer Wood, and give to him tho necessary legal power to sustain himself It is true under the existing city charter the Mayor is powerless for good. One man may as well bo Mayor nx another. He h i? no control over the public ex|iendi ture, nor the administration of juslice, nor the executive departments, ne is without tho necessary authority to diroct these branches of the public service. Hut this defect in our system will , doubtless, be remedied. The friends of pond ijovernment see now thai tho evils mid or which we labor are in consequence of tho want of stilll cient authority in tho municipal head, and not In the omissions of that officer. It is tho decentralization of our municipal system, coating so many independent heads, that has produced the present enormous ex penditurcs and lax government. To remedy this there nvist ba a concentration of isiwer in the Mayor, who could then with Justice be held responsible. Responsibility and power w..u!d then accompany each other. It is unfair to hold that officer accountable for tho conduct of the Common Council, the Rxecntive Pejwirtments or the Police, when ho has no au thority over either. Give to such a man as Mayor Wood the neeesrary authority , and tho city of Now York will Soon become tho first city in the world, so far us good and clu ap government is concerned. That theso evils will be soon remedied there can be no doubt. All parties and all men seesand acknowledge tho mistake which has deprived the Mayor of power. With a conviction, therefore, that the necessary change In tho charter will he nutd" by the coming legislature, wo de sire the re-election of Mr. Wood. He has had no opitortu nity to display li s masterly executive qualities, Letua re-elect him ami restore to tho office tho dignity and au thority which of right belongs to It, and wo pie !??> our selves that at tho corclusio^of his term no man will dare to ruis-> his voice in this community against liim. It is scarcoly nocossary to remind you that theabus" which is now boing heaped ujiou tho defenceless head of our present Mayor is from tho same "old coon." He shriws himself Just before the olectlon. every two yoais. It c nues mainly from mon who cry "Step thief," to divert attention from their own misdeeds in-thc past and designs u|H>n tho municipal trea sury iu tho future. Tho honest masses of this city do re quire reform; but it is in tho city charter, In tho Common Council, and in most of the oxecutivo departments. Over these (whore the evil really lies) tho Mayor, under exist ing laws, has no control. j But tf there bo wrong* in the Mayoralty chairTainmany ? Hall in not the pine to look Tor reform. No true reform emanates from that quarter. Indeed, from that hotbed of corruption have sprung most of the evils under which the pooplo of Now York labor. Even the present rity charter was passed through Its influonco, to take from Mayor Wood the power to do pood and to retain it* own hold upon the money power of the Corporation. For vo*rB it has font into the piililto employment its agents rind plunderers, and derived in sole pecuniary supjiort from thoir deprcdati- ns upon the public treasury. I?t the demoernoy recall the names of the defaulters?of the Albury lobby schemers ? of the Aldormanlc rings? of the Forty Thieves' t'ommon Council ? nnd of the notorious bullies and law breakers who have disgraced this oity for for years, and their political hoadquartors will be found in Tammany Hall. That concern is yet ruled by men wh >, though of minor impomnoOt are yot of the same siatnn. Reform from such a quarter cannot bo est pocted. However fair, by common repute, may be the reputation of any man presented by them as a candidate, itiscortain thai tho unscrupulous clique who govern there will hold him under thoir baneful spell, if elec-tod. They will not trust an independent man, who d<vres to do right, and this in tho reason they Idite our prencat Mayor. He despises and defies tliem. Ami it is a like contempt for the Tammany cabal that haw caused tho- outside re spectitblo organizations to repudiate any alliance with it. "Its touch is death, and its pnwrieesure destruction." As for Mozart, wo stand f irth alone and independent. Young, vigorous and confident, wo seek alliance with none. We rely upon the Justice of our cause, tho com manding strength of our i?)ld and able loader, and th ? patriotism and intelligence of the )>onp)... Under this banner we go forth to victory, I'nllko Tammany H.ill we have asked alliance with no othor party. Wo are able to fight this contest relying solely upon our own re. sources. Wo shall make no alliances. Representing the great body of the honest masses and the lion hearted democracy of the city, we present our candidate to the people, feeling and bolieviug that a glorious result awaits us. God defend the right. By orrtor of the committee, Hon. I. C. IlELAl'LAlNE, Chairman. J W Itorcx, 1 ?a<.rotarU>?? W. II.
