Tho Tahiti Mail Packet "Surprise."
On the ICth the French brigantine Surprise arriv
ed at this port from Tahiti. She is the first of the
regular postal packets sent under the mail contract
with the Tabitian Government. The Surprise was
formerly the Cora, which, sailing under Peruvian
colors, kidnapping Kanakas in the South Pacific,
was taken by the natives of the Island of Ruppa and
delivered to the French authorities at Tahiti. Evi
dence of her character as a slaver being found, her
captain, far fear of personal consequences, secretly
left Tahiti during the night. The Cora was con
demned by the authorities at Tahiti and sold. After
Icing re-naturalized, she has brought the first special
mail under contract to this port.

a telegram, dated New York, Sept. 1G, says : The
Florida is still in port at Brest, and to-day it is
stated in the journals that she is go ng to be seized
ly owners of certain French vessels which had been
burned by her; and that a British man-of-war was
also lying in wait for ber, for burning a British vessel.
The funds and commerce generally had a great
advance, in view of the certainty that peace will be
maintained in Europe. Also that tha claim cf rebel
piracy, on the ocean, to be treated as legalized priva
teering, is soon to be tested in the French Courts.
A preliminary decision has already been rendered,
whereby British owners in London of the silver stolen
by the pirate MafUtt from the sb p Zf. F. Ilozie,
restrain the disposition of this property by Marcoura
& Co., who have advanced upon it. about S 40,000.
This advance being on stolen property, they may
act only lose their advance money, but may be
impounded for damages to the rightful owners. The
President of the Civil Tribunal, at Paris, has issued
an order for the sale of the silver, tnd directed the
proceeds to be invested in Treasui-y bonds, at six
months, till the question of ownership is decided.
In regard to the Florida at Brest J the same corres

York, Money a-y. Sterling firmer, 14U; Gold

withstanding the favorable start it took in Europe,

Foreign Shipping in the Harbor.
The high rate of insurance charged on account of
the ravages of the rebel steamers .llalnm i, Florida,
etc, has to a great extent driven American vessels
out of tervicc for long foreign voyages, and as a con
sequence vessels of other nations are doing the carry
ing trade. San Francisco forms no exception to the
general rule, and there arc to-day more foreign flags
displayed by shipping in the harbor than at any
previous time. Among the foreign shipping now
here arc vessels belonging to Prussia, Denmark,
Hamburg, Bremen, Lubcck, Russia, Great Britain,
Franco, Sardinia an.l Columbia. The Lubeck bark
Jllnia, recently at hand from Liverpool, is the second
vessel bearing the flag of that nationality that ever
entered this harbor. She was stopped by the Flori
da in the Atlantic, and six passengers put aboard,
whom they agreed to pay passage for. The papers
were all made out and Bigned, but when the bold
rovers got on board they mizzled without saying

The conveyance of the New Almaden mine to the
Quicksilver Company, involving some 1,750,000 of
money, required, 1,000 worth of revenue stamps to

tax yet required in any one transaction. The law
calls for 1,000 cf stamps to convey 500,090 worth
of property, and it prohibits a demand for over
1,000 however large the property may be.

This is the title cf a long article in the Bulletin ,
which is too long for extract entire. It is a case
where the Civil Tribunal of Tahiti directs that the
Consul of the United States be invited to make resti
tution of the deposits of money and articles of value
belonging to the estates of Daniel Marsh, to the
hands of the Bishop for M's heirs, and the editor
says "judging from the long previous delay, it
might reasonably have been doubted whether the
money would ever have reached the children, if the
French Government had not taken action in the
matter. It is rarely that any notice of these acts, as
in this case by official publication in a Government
paper, comes before the public; and they will never
be rectified except by the attention of the authorities
at Washington being called to some glaring case of
delay. In the Sandwich Islands, similar instances
have occurred where property of deceased persons was
long withheld from the heirs by the consuls who on
one frivolous pretence or another allowed year after
year to pass before paying over money due."
Any such occurrence must have happened before

i TIic Capture ol Fori
The most signal triumph of the Federal army
which we have to record, is the capture of Morris
Island, Fort Warner of course included. It is gene
rally conceded that the capture of this important
point will prove but preliminary to the fall of Sumter
an-1 finally of Charlest-.n itself. The following brief
extract from a description of the last day's bombard
ment (St-pt. 6,) from the New York Herald's Morris
Island correspondence, as telegraphed to the Rulle.
tin, will give some idea cf the terrific nature of the
' In accordance with the order given on a previ
ous day, fire was opened on Wagner from all our
batteries, yesterday morning at daylight. The fire
was rapid and elective and the range being obtained,
we poured into that work projectiles such as never
before were brought to bear ipon any sand battery.
The results were most encouraging. Our heavy rifle -projectiles
plowed through the parapets of the rebel
woik and plunged deeply into the covering ot the
huge bomb-proof, when they exploded and threw
high in the air immense quantities cf sand. The
firing was at short range and very accurate not
one ihot out of ten failed to be effective. At times,
two or three shells would strike together, and the
gleams of fire, volumes of smoke, and tons of sand
that shot up quickly and then rolled off in dingy
clou Is, gave the immense mound covering to the
bomb-proof an appearance not unlike a miniature
volcano in full eruption. The rebels attempted to
make some deteiise in the early moments of the bom
bardment, and for a while tired rapidly and spitefully
their canister, grtpe and schrapnell shells, but they
could not stand to their guns. The fort gleamed like
bell with the fire of exploding shells, and instant
death awaited the bold spirits who dared to face our
guns. Iu half an hour the fort became silent. Not
a shot was tired from it during the day, an-1 not a
living being shewed himself above the parapet or
indeed outside of the bomb-proof."
The Richmond Fujuirer of the 8th contains the
following from Charleston the 7th :
Morris Island was evacuated, and the enemy
hold Cummings' Point, in full view of the city.
Heavy firing is now going cn between the batteries
on Sullivan's Island and Fjrt Moultrie and the Moni
tors." A New York paper says : " The taking of the
Cummings' Poiut batteries brings General Gilmore's
long range Parrot guns one aud one-eighth miles
nearer tiie City of Charleston than they were when
the twelve " Greek Fire" shells were thrown into the
When the new bxtteries are in position the whole
harbor will be commanded by his guns, while Charles
ton will be within easy shelliug distance. The imme
diate fall of the city is not, however, expected. Be
lieving that the rebel prisoners know quite as well,
if notbetter, how to handle their infernal machines,
Gilmore has set the rebel prisoners at work to remove
them. Our soldiers and sailors are enthusiastically
in favor of this arrangement.
A late Charleston Mercury says the rebel casual
ties in the struggle for the possession of Morris Island
were seven hundred killed, wounded and missing.
The bombardment of Fort Moultrie is also con
tinued with vigor. The indefatigable Ironsides and
a portion of the Monitor fleet keep hammering away,
and leave but little opportunity, night or day, for the
enemy to repair damages. It is said that the para
pet walls are broken, and the guns dismounted, so
that its speedy reduction is anticipated.
The capture of Wagner was followed by a boat
attack upon Sumter, which proved, however, unsuc
cessful and somewhat disastrous.
