BY THIS DAY'S MAILS.
NASSAU, (N. P.) May 20.
On Sunday last arrived the American
schooner Greyhound, with flavej from the
coast of Africa, by which we hare receiv
ed the intelligence of an Englilh squadron
of frigates having taken Goree trom the
French. The fame day captain Hunter
(he failed in March last, for the coast of
Florida returned.) having loft his vessel,
which wa» taken by the Spanith gaUtys
cruising on that station.
His majesty's fliip Hinde, capt Larcom
destined to have failed to-morrow, as a con
voy to the merchants fleet, bound to En
gland received damage in the
thunder Itorm (hi morniug. Hir main
mast and main topmast were (hiveted to
pieces by the lightning. The departure of
the fleet, will ntctffarily be impeded until
che (hip can receive the necessary repairs.
A sloop bound for Exumf. has had her
mast split in pieces ; and we understand
that the ft >rm has occasioned considerable
damage to more of the (hipping, and to
f«veral of the houses in town.
On Sunday came into the offing, his ma
jesty's (hip La Decade, captain Ruther
ford, from a cruize, (he has been out at sea
fiom Jamaica about three m»nths, and her
provision being nearly exhanlUd.
The La Prompte has sent into this port,
an American brig, prize, bound from Vera
Cruz, with mo ey on board, as is said, to
the amount of 50,000 dollars.
We are sorry to announce the captu e of
two privateers, the Hope- captain Davis,
and the Eagle, captain Whitehead, both of
th s port, who were accidentally grounded
in attempting to capture the enemy—a
king's vessel, carrying 18 guns. We have
also to lament the death of both captains of
our pri/ateers, and a number of brave men.
Ii is further dated that the bpani(h captain
was killed in the aAion.

Extract of « letter from an American gentle-
man at St. Kits.
" I have just arrived here from a Guada
loupe prison, where I have been plundered
and insulted in the mod barbaroui manner.
Judge of my feelings, when I found four of
our cruizers in this port, where, however, 1
have since learned, they all had budnefs, and
will be off soon on their cruizing ground.
" The United States should own about
15 or Jo m«»re brigs and small Blips (16 to
18 guns), and by keeping mult of them on
the Guadaloupe (lation, prote&ed by two or
more large fripates, the pirates would soon
be entirely cut up, and imnienfc fuins
acquired «nd saved, by French prizes and re
captured Britilh and American veflels."

TO A GREAT MAN.
RETIRING from the vulgar crowd
Of upstart rich, of meanly proud,
PiCKlriho, awhile atttnd.;
Unenvy'd in thy humble sphere,
Thou may'lt without fufpictcn hear
The praises of a friend—
Par who in these difccrning days
On fallen Statesmen lavifli praifc ?
W ho, flatt'ry on the poor ?
What venal, calculating rnufe
A fault in vice exalted views,
A good in worth obfeure ?
Let envy o'er thy laurels gloom.
Let fenfeiefs vanity refumt
What Walhington conferred;
Let mean caprice or wounded pride
Hope in the dust thy fame to hide,
And mix thee with the herd.
Vain trappings these, a thin disguise
Impnfing but on vulgar eyes,
Obscuring na ure's plan I
Wor», they but dazzle and deceive :
Stript nif, iu stronger hght they leave
The lineaments of man.
Freed from the glare of rank and place,
In unadnrn'd arid native grace,
They now appear tonfeft s
The ardent mind, the judgment wife
The foul elafiic, quick to rife
More strong, the more comprcft ;
Superior still tn fortune seen,
Adlive in good, in bad serene.
Pursuing right alone —
These, tho' the temped press thee down,
Tbo' faiflinn rave, tho' A s frown,
These still are all thy ow«.
Let vulgar mind> with' senseless joy
Prefer, tho' mix'd with base alloy,
The bright deceitful com.
The experienc'd fcge will still oxplere
Pure, unalloy'd, the virgin ore
That glitters in the mine.
A correspondent observes, that pride, and
the indolence of party f irit, does more in
jury to the cause of tederaHsm than moll
people are aware of, as being the great cause
of the want of union and energy ; while tr.e
anti Jed- aiists are united as one man from
New Hampshire to Georgia. Let us en
deavour to make this thing some hat intel
ligible. Ihe former are it) poffelTion of the
government and resources of the country.

This ought to excite vigilance in the pof

Men of talents will not employ their pens,
and individuals are above advising but with
a fele& few, and some of whom may per
haps be badly chofes. There is not (hat in

which is abfolutely.necefiary for aright uu

It is proper that men in public flation*
fliould be corre&lv informed refpeifting the
operation of the Sws and meafur.-fc of gov
ernment ; but in order to obtain that infor
mation with mo e certainty, they (hould a
void all unneceflary reserve.,
It is true, General Washington did not
appear to m x mui h with the world, but he
always had people about him, both when
in military and civil life, who were capable
of giving the best opinions, and on whom he
could rely ; and his found judgment enabled
him to compare and draw just conclufiq'fli.
It was remarked of Colonel Hamilton when
in public office, that he took uncommon
pains to obtain the opinions of men of in
formation on certain measures before he a
dopted them : audio colltft the public sen
timent. He knew mankind, and u mud
be supposed that hi* long acquaintance with,
ai d intimate knowledge of a Wafliington,
was no disadvantage to him.
The popular Burletta of Midas has been

Every one remembers the jocund song of

• Since you mean to hira fer service
" Come with me, you jolly d»g, &c."
Let it be Darodied and, instead of the (hep
herd and his man, let the interlocutors be
Dunne, and Callender.
P Since you mean to climb my garret,
Come with me, you lousy dog,
Squalling n:>nfcnfe, like a parrot
Railing, lying, drinking grog
With three cents your landing wages,
You fliill fcur»i!y be fed;
Cowhtel, oi-chetk lights and liver,
Skimmed milk and mouldy bread.
Come, strike hinds, you ragged rover,
When from Newgate once you flie,
When Aurora's labors < ver,
You ihail booze in Gin with me.
