FROM ST. AUGUSTUS Wc learn by

which took Mr. Corrixoru out of the schr. A.
ry, of tl is port, as mentioned some short time
since. is called the General Jiumez i she was u
Spanish Guineaman, from Africa, taken by a
small Patriot privateer, which was soon after
wrecked, and the crew and commission transfer
red to the bri She is commanded by a Balti
morean, has but about twenty men on board, and
those h a mutinous state, with upwards of 250
slaves. She appeared ofi" St. Augustine about 12
;r U days since; the commander sent a letter
n shorcacMrtsscd tojiovernor LqjpixckjuiI4
ling that his vessel was short of water and pro
visions, and that if a supply was sent oft to them
the Governor's Son would be immediately re
leased The message returned by the Govern'
r was, that much as he loved his child, he would
r.oi supply them with a mouthful of provisions, or
a drop of water to save him from the yard-arm ;
;nd pointedly forbid any Spaniard from holding
the leist intercourse with them. But two or
three joutig gentlemen of this city, friends to
young CopriNGEB, who happened to be in St.
Augustine at the time, requested permission of
t!ie Governor to board the brig and endeavor to
fleet the release of his son. lie told them, that
beinj; American citizens, they coukl act as they
thought proper, but that no loat from the garri
son could be furnished them. They then re
paired on board an American vessel in the har
l.nr, obtained the loan of her boat, and the assist
ance of a few seamen, with which they repair
cd on board the brig they were received with
civility by the Captain, and after some consulta
tion, he released Mr. CorriNCin, and allowed
Jiim to go on shore in the boat. The trig re
mained off the harbor for several days, and then
Lore awav. as was reported, for St John's River,
3ast-Florida. The commander, we understand,
was very rnions to dispose of his slaves, and
offered them a S 100 each, on board. fCJ By

" A letter was received some short time since at
Chicago, from Maj. Marston, commanding Fort
Armstrong It appears that the express commu

Maj. Baker, at Chicago. He states that two of
his men had been killed by the Indians that
they had attempted to cutoff his provisions, boats,

like a regular attack tipon the fort, but were re

leaving the fort in presence of the enemy, lie
had applied to Col. Leavenworth for aid, but the
Colonel's command was too small to afford any.
" 1 he fact is that great apprehensions are en
tertained for the safety of all the posts west of
Green Hay and Chicago. I here are so few men
at these places, that it must be a great temptation
to those Indians, who, no doubt, view with con

to be a most righteous act of friendship on the

Very few, how ever IiauVned, but will be brought to

very little to persuade them that they have experienced

glorying In lus crime, as being the means employed by , '
the Deity to aecompluJi lus salvation. . Hence we see the .
papers teeming with the dying confessions, or rather ex.
ultations, of the murderer, the pirate and the destroyer
of female chastity and to apread tlieir pemiciotis influ.
ence still wider, they are ushered forth in pamphlets, and -placed
in the hand of hawkers, to be scattered into ev

. Hull, otic of the two who lately robbed the mail
near lUhi more, -and murdered, in cold blood, the inno
cent driver, tlie fatlier of a family, dependent on him for
support, writes thus to his uncle : MMy arrest for the
crime,' which I must shortly expiate with my life, was ;
myateriou it was the work of Providence I can call y
it Cttheriy love it put -a sudden stop to my w icked cv
reer, and I have no doubt will terminate Sot my greatest
possible good. If the laws of ny country condemn me
to death, and I am snatched from the embraces of a ten
der parent, it is to save my soul from everlasting miaery..
If I dl into deep disgrace, H Is on purpose that I may
rise to high honors. Even the iron doors of this pubGo
house of justice and correction, open to me my way to
the right land of my heavenly Fatlter." A letter exhib
iting less exultation and more penitence, would, we think,
be more appropriate, and better suit the enormity of his
guilt ) but it is not our intention to condemn the feeling-
he lias expressed, but only the publication of them to the
world. Buch a letter, undoubtedly, .must be gratifying. ,
and consoling to his friends ; but it is a blind, senseless
policy to let it go any farther. We believe lus arrest to
have been " the work of Providence but we can hard-
lygive credence to the assertion, that hi; violating the
laws of his country and of his Cod, wxs designed by Prov
idence, " on purpose to raise him to high honors." What
ever oUiers may tlunk, we cannot assent to the idea, that
u tiod is the author of evil" or Uut to save the soul of
one man, he would commission that man to destroy the .
soul of another. -Such a doctrine is directly opposite to
our notions of the justice and benevolence of the Deity ; "A
and it is a doctrine, too, w hich, even if it be true, ought y
not to be inculcated. It places the blackest Villains in so
ciety on a level with its best members ; and destroys the -safety
of all, in asserting, by implication, that tlie destruc
tion dT the life of one, two, or three useful and valuable
citizens may be the appointed means of u fatherly love,"
to effect the salvation of so many of the very dregs of
society. .V r
