Mercury, wliioh, it WOB stated sonic days
since, wes coming oft this-port to blockade
tho harbor,' was first noticed off boro at on
carly hour on..Saturday by Pilot Boat No. 4,
then outside thc Bar, and also from the stce
?>lo ?f tho Custom House. Tho pilot boat
lad observed in tho offlrig on Friday evening
what Appenrod tobo n inerchaut ship bound
into tins harbor, and which, not being in
sight on Saturday,' was no doubt ordered off
by tho Niagara Towards midday tho frighto
disappcarca, but returned off tho port in tho
afternoon.- , . .
On Saturday, Oapt. Robert Lockwood, pi
lot, in' boat No, 2 (tho "NY, Y. Leitch,) took
to Rca tho schooner Minnehaha, for Baltimore,
mid soon after leaving thc sohooucr outside,
ho wont on board his boat, whop he made in
thc offing, standing in, a Square-rigged vessel.
Night coming on and the Niagara being in
sight, 'lie' thought it best to sond his pilot
boat into port, and ty toke his skiff und one
hand and prooocd to tho bark. Ile reached
her about 7 p. m., ?nd found her to bo the
bark didja* from Liverpool, in ballast, con
signed to Messrs. lt. Mure ?V Co,, of this oity.
The tide being too late to get hor into port,
he remained on board during Saturday night,
.his skiff being taken on deck and carefully
placed uway. On. Sunday morning, it bcinj]
calm, t ini pilot was unable to ger her undoi
way, and about 8} a. tn., she was boarded b}
n boat from thc Niagara, commanded bj
Lieut.'It. L, May, who informed the oaptoii
of the llilja that tho port was blockaded, th?
rebels inside having fired on Fort SUmto:
with n garrison of less, than, 100 mon, gav<
him ? Yankee paper containing thc lutes
news, and mentioned that on army of 100,
OOO men had been lauded , on the coast o
Louisiana. Thc captain of the llilja inform
ed tho Lieutenant that he'was short of water
and requested to know if the Niagara couh
supply bini ; but he was infoi'ined that til'
frigate had a shorter supply of that than an;
other necessary article. Tho following is
1 copy of tho endorsement of Lieut, lt. L. May
on the papers of,tho*llilja :
v " Boarded May 12th, and ordered off th
whole Southern coast of the United States'o
^America, it being blockaded. (Signed) -
lt. L. May,"
Lieutenant U. Si Steanjsliip'Niagar.i.^
The officer romaincd by thc 11 Lija for abou
twenty minutes, when he left. Thc boat'
? crew had a revolver each in a bel;, attache
to the waist. Mr. Lockwood left tho Hilj
about 10 o'clock, and reached the city in lp!
skiff, accompanied by n valuable boat Inuit
who remained faithful, although appearance
indicated that the boy had only to open hi
mouth, when he might have had a passage t
some other place than " Dixie's Land." Th
llilja went oil' during the day, and will pn
ceed to tho British Provinces.
Tho British ship Monmouth,.from Live
pool; and the ship. Ge.n'l. Parkhill, from tl
same place, were seen off tho bar yCstord:i
?nd .were ordered off j and wc understand tin
-the Niagara had previously sent off .tjiree.-otl

wo arc but too ?pt to lose sight of. thoir con

thc propor sequence, and which they aro de

sult of Divine law which lilis decreed that
tho fantastic tricks of vanity, and tho inso

The Wisc statesman, who must be gO(d if ho

following thc real meaning in what is said by
Christ, he refuses absolutely to blend Religion
and politics together, he is not tho less heed
fid to sec that his laws, his, policy audits .en
actments, shall never come in conflict With
God's law; aud this must bo estimated, and
I can only bc estimated by an enlightened con
science of rulers nud people trained together^
