Lately palfed tliror^h this county,
one Johnilon, a feaman, belonging to
Exeter, in New-Hampihive-, who gives
thb follo-te'ing account of the capture ol
Capt. Pettrfon, of I.otig-lfland-, and his
trew. Confining of eight men, (he be
ing one) by the Algerines, and'their
efcape I'rom tlieni.
They failed from Newbury-Portfotne
time in the year 17S4, on a whaling
voyage, and having been out about
three months-, were taken by an Alger
ine cruifer of 16 guns, and carried in
to Africa, wlicrc they were kepi at hard
labour forcne'ytar, at which time Capt.
Peterfon was made overfeer of the reft
cf the (laves, and had the charge of
dealing out to them their prcvifions, &c.
Rnd tlius continued for four years, when
liis filiation became intolerable, and he
determined to attempt an efcape.
Finding ah old Vefl'dthat was broiiglit
in as a prize, and trondemned as unfit
iorfea, he conveyed on board of her,
from time to time, fiich f rovifions and
Other neceft'aries ashe could carry with
out deteftion ; and being as well pre-
parei as his fituation would enable him,
he communicated his intentions to his
men, and to Mr. Underliill of Weft-
Chdlcr, in the ftate of Kew-York. who
liad been twenty years in flavery. They
ap|iioved of his plan, and accordingly
embarked in the night, witli their clogs
on their legS)-and put to fea, chooling
rather to truft thcmfelves to the mercy
Cl the waves, than continue in a de-
plor.tble Rate of flavery to a mercile''s
gang of infidels. 'They fulTered ru: -h
by f.itiguein.pumping, and from aw.;rit
tli ptovilions and clnathing ; but being
lavoured w itii good weather *and lair
winds, they arrived fafe in Georgia, af
ter a paffiige of fix weeks, and are now
on the way to tiieir friends, having been
a'bfent almoft fix ycai-s.
