as a spy in tho American Service during

had at his command slx"-oared barge, in
which he roamed the lake and tho river, m

British scttlcrticnt. On ono occasion he
intercepted 'despatches twice in ono day at

Johnson Jms several boats, every way
adapted to his designs, one of, which is for-!
ty feet in jength, but of so light a construe--tion
as to be easily carried across the'island,
and its speed is said to exceed that of the
swiftest boats on the lake. Shortly after
tho destruction of the Sir Robert Peel, lie
proceeded in this boat with a few of his
men up 'the lake, made a predatory incursion
upon'an island near mouth of the Bay of
Quints, and plundered the inhabitants, re
turning on tho night of the 8th inst.,'to the
fastness of "Tho Thousand Island.,' It is
not known that he has been on the main
land since "the burning of the S. R. P. He
has had occasional interviews with some of
our citizens since that event, but they have
taken place on the water. He and those1
that at end him on these occasions arc well
armed. His own appearance, with six pis
tols, a dirk and bowio knife in his belt, is
sufficiently belligerent;, and hchas with him,
it is said invariably, the colors of tho Sir.
It. P. He considers the destruction of that
vessel as an act of piracy, and that his life
has become thereby forfeited, and says he
shall sell it at the dearest rate.
Such "is the character of the Buccaneer
of tho lake; sufficient surely, with the natur
al and ordinary progress of exaggeration,
to be a subject of alarm to the border inhabi
tants. An alarm not altogether groundless,
from the fact that tho larger islande of this
numerours group are inhabited by a lawless
race of half banditti; who would scarcely
scruple to join in nearly any ontcrprize fo'r
plunder; who have perhaps one hundred
boats, and whoso number has been enlarged
considerably by refugco accessions. It is
supposed that there are at least one thousand
refugees and other persons on these islands,
under the control and at the comjnand of
Johnson, and several thousands of refugees,
between Niagara and Ogdensburg.
It is not to bo imagined that the local mili
tia, or ho local authorities, however well
disposed to coqperato with tho officers of
governniont in measures to repel and pre
vent these incursions and to detect and pun
ish the marauders, are adequate to the emer
gency. The commerce of tho river and
the lake, the national character; and the lives
and proporty o( our citizens, require a gov
ernment force sufiicioirt,lo explore the island
and bxpel tho marauder a considerable
militia force at several points on the fron
tier; and tho employment of an armed stchm
vessel or revenue cutter,
Thes matters, we understand.havo been

for Baltimoro with about lliO passengers,
of whom about BO were ladies.
At about 11 o'clock on - tho same night,
while off tho North Carolina coast, say 30
miles from land, weather moderate and
night dark, tho starboard boiler exploded,
and tho vessel was lost, with all thp-passen-
gers and crew, except those names arq enu
merated among the saved in the list to bo
found bc.low ; ,
Wc have gjthcre.d.tho following facts from
tho first mate, Mr. Ilibbcrd, who had chargo
of tho boat at the' timet Mr. Ilibbcrd states
that at about 10 o'.clock atnight he was cal
led to the command of the. boat, and that he
was pacing the promenade deck in front of
tho steerage-house; that ho found himself
shortly after, upon tho main deck, lying be
tween the mast and side of the boat; that,
upon the return of consciousness, he had a
confused idea of having heard an explosion,
something like that of gunpowor, immedi
ately, before he discovered himscif ih his.
then situation; Ho was induced, therefore,
to rise and walk aft, where, he discovered
that the boat midships was. blown entirely
to pieces; that tho head of tho starboard
boiler was blown out, and the top torn open;
that the timbers and nlank on tho starboard
side were (piped asunder, and that (he boat
topk watei whenever she rolled in that dir
ection. lie became immediately aware of the
horrors of their situation, and the danger of
letting the passengers Know that the boat
was sinking, bcforelowcring the small boats.
He proceeded, therefore, to do this. . Upon
dropping the. boa(, he was asked hi3 object,
and he replied that it was to pass around the
steamer to-ascertain her condition. Before
doing this, however, he took in a couple of
men. Ho ordered the other boats to be
lqwcred.and two were shortly put into the
water, but they lcakcd so much in conse
quence of their longj' exposure to tfio sun,
that oho Pf them sunk, after a fruitflcss at
tempt to bail her. He had in the interim
taken several from tho water, until the num
ber made ten. In the other boat afloat there
were eleven. While they were making a
fruitless attempt to bail tho small boat, the
Pulaski went down with a dreadful crash,
in about 45 minutes after lhe explosion
. . Both boats now insisted upon' Mr. Hib-'
herd's directing their course to the ihorc but,

nc rcsisieu incir remonstrances, replying
that he would not abandon the spot until
daylight. At .about three o'clock in the
morning they started, in, tho midst of the
waitings of the hopeles.s beings who wpre
floating around in every direction, upon
was about thirty inilcs distant. After pul
ling abouttfiirtcenliours,,.the persons in both
boats became tired, and insisted that Mr. Ilib
bcrd should land. r This ho opposed, think
ing it safest to proceed along the coast, and to
enter some ono of il3 numerous inlets; but he
was at length forced to yield to the general de
sire, and to attempt a landing upon the beach,
a little east of Stump Inlet,.
He advised,Mr. .Cooper, of Ga. who had
command ot the other boat, and a couple ot
ladies with two children under his charge,
to wait until his boat had first landed, as he
apprphended much danger in the attempt;
and, should th'ey succeed, they might assist
lum and tho iadied and children, There
were .eleven persons in the mate's boat,(hav
ing taken two black women from Mr. Coo
per's.) Of these, two passcugera. ono of
the crew, and the two negro wom.en were
drowned, and six gained the shore. After
waiting for a signal, which ho received from
thc.matc, Mr. Cooper and his companions
landed in about three, hours, after the first
boat, in safety; , They (hen proceeded a
short distance across Stump, Sound, to Mr.
