Deigned to exhlbit*tn a new point ot v:t w

The brig Betsey, belonging to Mr.
Daniel Sargent, of this town, and com
manded by Jofepli-Saunders, of Cape Ann,
failed from this port, in September lalt,
for BilEoa, and fofely arrived there. Some
of the crew, fearfulof falling into the hands
of the Algerines on her homeward bound
paflage, left the brig, which obliged Capt.
Saunders to (hip other hands. Accord
ingly he took on board one Flemilh.an Ital
ian, and aPortuguefe sailor—who, when at
iea, rose upon the vessel, entered the cabin,
and killed a passenger by the name of
Wood, belonging to New-London, in con.
ne&icut, who had fold some cargo in BiJ
boa, and had on board the Betsey the pro
ceeds of the fame, which the Pirates being
acquainted with, occaConed the horrid
deed, in hope? of fordid gain. They like
wise attempted the-lives of the Captain
and Mate, the former of whom received
three dangerous wounds, notwith(landing
which they were drove out of the cabin"
die mallei, mate, and one boy contrived
ways to secure themselves in the cabin, by
fattening, the companion and cabin doors.
The pirates, not long after, being delfcu
tute of provisions, demanded foroe°of the
captain; upon being refufed they drew lots
for one of two lads that were on deck,
which to deftroy;—and then info ined
the Captain that one of his boys on detk
would soon be killed, except be fumifh
ed them with provisions. The captain
knowing it to be in his power to preserve
the life of a human being, and aduifted
by the feelings of humanity, consented
thereto. Five days after, one of the lad*
espied a fail near the Western-Islands, and
secretly informed capt. S. of the lame ;
who in the evening hung a lanthern or
light out of the cabin window ; by means
of which she was taken by a British let*
ter of marque, and carried into Barba
does. The pirates were confined in irons
and sent to R this port. They arrived hers
