which the country , has been placed, seems to me to be
fortunate. It prevents collisions which might arise be

To the collector of any Port in the U. States
The following is a description of the Hurricane and
its devastations, which we copy from the Gazette
above mentioned : " j

shittinp backwards and forwards from this point toN.
W.. and increasinp; in violence every instant, and
continued till five the following morninp;, (by which
time the work of destruction had been completed)
when it shifted again to S. E. and blew exceedingly
strong until about half past eight; when it somewhat
abated in violence and gradually died away, leaving
the whole island one unvaried scene ot isolation
and distuess. In Bi rdgetown there is scarcely a house
which has escaped injury hundreds have heen razed
to the ground, and many of their inhabitants buried
under the ruins, others unroofed and partially thrown
down so as to be completely untenantable. Trees of
immense size and strength were either uplifted by
the roots or bereft of their branches. All the vessels
in Carlisle's Bay were driven from their moorings
and thrown or shore. At the Out Ports in Speights,
the Hole and Oistin's towns every house" has either
been thrown down or rendered untenantable their
inhabitants sharing the fate of the numberless victims
who have been crushed to death. . In the country, the
whole face of nature is changed on the plantations,
almost without a single exception, the buildings,
mills, and negro houses, have been destroyed,; and
many of them have suffered materially in slaves and
cattle. The provisos which had been, housed, as
well as the standing corn and canes in the fields, have
been so completely destroyed as scarcely to leave a
vestige behind, and to add to the heart rending pic
ture,' at this moment many of the estates are without
an article of food of any kind. No force of language can
indeed convey an idea of the horror and distress every
where observable throughout the island, and which
ever way the eye is turned, the head grows di-m
and the heart becomes faint at the saddening i and
sorrowful picture. Many of the opulent and respec
table families, as well as those of th6 middle and poor
er, by this melancholy catastrophe, have thus been
driven out, destitute of a cove rine -manv who the
day before were surrounded by their families and
comforts, have not where to la their heads.
" Up to this moment the number of killed has not
been ascertained, nor all the unfortunate creatures
who have been inhumed in the fallen dwelling tak
en from beneath them. The interval of time between
Thursday morning and the present, has been employed
by the living in burying the dead. The bodies which
have oeen discovered have been borne through the
streets to their silent and narrow homes in coffins,
trees, and whatever else could be obtained for them.
Amfclst numberless other distressing cases of this
kind, it is our painful duty to notice the melancholy
fate of Deputy-Assistant-Commissary-General Flan
ner, who, with his wife, five children, his niece and
two servants were all buried under the ruins of their
dwelling on Wednesday night, from which they were
not taken until the following morning his unhappy

Wednesday. We cannot conclude this appalling
account, without observing that of the many persons
with whom we have conversed on the subject, and
who experienced the great storm of 1780, all concur in
the opinion thatiereater iniurv has been done on the
island by the latter than the former a circumstance4feel unwilliii
which will morel forcibly convey to the reader an idea
of the violence of the storm of Wednesday night,
which lasted 8 hours only, when the duration of that
of 1780 is supposed to have been 48 hours. The most
remarkable! phenomenon attending the storm of,
Thursday morning, was the sudden gusts of wind
which, instead of thunder, invariablyjaccompanied
the most vivid flashes of lightning, and came with a
force not to be withstood. Hollow, subterranean
noises were also heard, ani some imagine we were
also visited during the night with earthquake this,
however, we do not vouch for, as we were not sensi

hi. rnnsent True, his certificate friend Gildersleere,
though he doe ii;ot venture positively to say so, leav-s it
to be inferred thai Fowler only enf me this B11 of Sa
to get the negro in for him. This I deny flatly, and no
rf-nsmnnhlp man will believe it. Fowler now 8vs t hat he

it hrtppt-n that with thes-- suspicions on his mind, he is yet

came to consult with professional men about the suit he
was. prosecuting on the bond, and the suit I ws carrying
on for runninsr off mv negro. Then I found out that it
might be very useful to Fowler, who had run

me for th money back again, to deprive me of the powr

tr thi, I considered the negro mine ; and 1 kn w I v ps
liable to uav Fowler back his monev : but I sbousht I
')i"ht to bnve out of it the $1 13 which I had been da
maged. The .ruth is, that Fowler wanted to get clear. of
his bargain, and preferred ine money; iind, on 6ih Fe
bruary, 1831, lie wrot me letter from which the follow
ing is a true extract: I ;:m willing to take negroes

very much like contradicting his friend Gildersleeve.
but here loilows another extract trom the sameletter
14 We had better settle it privatelv ; previous to this, I was
trying1 o settle to please Gildersleevc." And I think this
looks' very little like confirmation to the tale tiat Gilder-
sleeve was made a witntss of the deed being given up to

to create the impression that I wanted this Bill of Sale
ffiven up without a witntss. But no; this Mr? Fowler i

and, by his own letter, who is it he selects? The very
man for whom he actd, and whom h was then bound to
r-i'-ase. Who has credulity enough to believe a man who
affirms that hr? surrendered up the evidence of his right
for property to one who he suspected meant t.i cheat him,
and therefore he took care to call a witness; and though
it occurred in a iown where many witnesses could be had,
he selected as a wi'ness the very person who was inte
rested? Jo'm Gildersleeve had more sense William
Fowler too. All these things ar an after thought, which
I can explain, I think.
Again iu J j'.v, 1830, this same Mr. John Gildersleeve
wrote me a letter, from whic" I make the following ex
tract, and which, when read, must create a regret in the
minds of some people that GJ did not blegs every man
with h strong memory: ' Mr. Fowler wishes nothing
from you but what is right as to the fellow, (mea .ing
Sam;) he don't pretend to have znv claim on him : he
only looks to you for the payment of the bond you gave
him, and did bold ijack the writ in hopes 'hat you would
pay it without a la.v suit" And he concludes, "I
shall come to Raleigh myself in" the course of 4 or 5
weeks; 1 will settle the thing with you. Let me hear
fro n you."
I think I have disposed of Mr. Gildersleeve'; statement;
and it will be no great effort to rid myself of any effect
i that is to follow Hindes'. As4o what the bond states, it
would have been more satisfactory to publish it. I rely
moieon its correctness than any man's memory. In
what manner I avoided a compliance with the bargain,
he does not condescend to state. His impertinent inter
ference with my property alone prevented my lelivering
the negr-) according to contract. I have sued him for it,
and this may account, for his readiness to certify. Had
Fowler admttted heretofore, as fully ag he now does, that
this act was authorised by him, I should have honored
him at the same time in a similar way ; but suspect his
lawyer bad advised him it wo ild not do while his suit on
the bond existed; but now that he finds it his interest to
claim the negro and not the money, the thing has changed.
Imprudent liabilities which I had incurred for others, as
a surety, involved me in ribt; and thougn I have long strug
.led . to recover from ihe inbarrassment which it has crea
t d in my pecuniary aflV.irs, I ha not succeeded as yet in
relieving my estate from a large d bt which I honestly owe,
and for which my friends are b"ind as my endorsers.
For their indemnity, a deed of trust has been executed by
me, which conveys the greater part of what I own. It
was this which changed ihe views of Mr. Fowler. So
long as he aw an immediate prospect of recovering the
money which was due upon the rescinding ot our bargain,
he pressed for it, concealed his agency in running off
tne negro as well as he could, and actually gave up he
Bill of'Sale, and consented it should be cancelled, and it
was cancelled in bis presence; but no sooner was he ap-prigedofm-
embarrassments, than he set up a claim to
Sam, and insisted on his right to him under a Bill of Sale;
ai:d he says, in his publication, that he has discontinued
his suit on the bond, f which I did not know hefnr I
it published, and now have onlv his Word for it , I did not

wouH take him and make good the loss 1 had sustained

hae sustained by this improper interference with my
property, 1 will now seal and da ver a new Bill of Safe
