EXPLOIT OF A PRIVATEERSMAN.
A writer In the Salem Evening Jour--fifl
givfiscnie interesting (acts in re
lation to the marina of Salem i 1 years
on br. Anions other things he gives
Ibe following account of an exploit of
.1 o 1 1
one oi me -oaieni puvaieersmen in
1814.
December 6th, tlie Macedonia,
Captain Penn Towiitend, arrived witli
prize goods and 22 prisoners. The
way in which the Captain came at,
aod captured one of his prizes, is fully
elucidated in the following anecdote,
the substance of w hich the writer had
from his own lips.
It appears that just after he had left
the Wertern Wards, where he had
stepped to recruit, and while he was
cruising between those inlands and
Tristain de Acunna, asail wasdiscov
ered on his lee bow, tow ards w Inch he
immediately kept away.
Whilst runnine down, with alight
breeie, the lookout at the mast-head
was hailed from the quarter deik as
follows:
MasUhead, there!
Sir?
'Do you ste that sail now ?'
Aye aye sir.'
What does she look like ?'
She looks very large, sir. Guess
the is either a frigate or indiaman.'
On hearing this, Captain T. took
his glass and went aloll to satisfy turn
sell in regard but It to his enemy s
strength and calibre. Alter doing so,
' he came down from alolt, luffed then
bia vessel up in the wind, sent all his
men, Willi exception oi nine or ten, ue
low, hoisted Dutch colors and kept oil
again before the wind. Disguising
hunselt so as to appear as mucli aspos
aible like a Dutch skipper, and having
transformed such of his men as remain
ed on deck into very respectable Dutch
Sailors, Capt. T, ran down across the
enemy's stern, and coming to under her
lee quarters was nailed asloliow t:
Ship ahoy l
Hallo.'
What ship is that?'
The name of some Dutch vessel with
which the Captain was w ell acquaint
ed, but which we have forgotten, was
given in reply, and men Lapt. 1. in
broken English, inquired :
Vot ship isdatr
In reply to this the name of a noted
Indiaman was give, with the following
addition:
We are last from Barbary, bound
to London, and short of provisions;
can't you supply us?'
In answer to this, Capt T. replied
in substance, that it the Captain of the
Indiaman would favor him with a vis
it he would ie what he could do about
it, and a short time alterwards he had
the satisfaction of seeing a boat along-,
side his vessel with the English Capt.
in full uniform, who immediately came
on board.
With the utmost politeness and civ
ility of manner, Capt. T. invited the
stranger into his cabin, as was custo
mary in those days, to lake a glass ot
wine. This invitation was ot course
immediately accepted, and the Capt.
went below, where the first officer ol
the Macedonia, as had been previous!)
arranged, acted the part oi Stewart b)
. placing upon the table w ine and such
other refreshments as the larder of the
tessel at the time afforded.
Then the two skippers sat downtc
the table and after pledging each otliei
in a friendly glass of wine entered into
tn animated but general conversation,
in the course of which the Englishman
animadverted at considerable length
and with much warmth, upon the pro
ceedings of a certain privateersman
commanded by one Townsend, who
he solemnly averred was a regular Yan
kee devil.
At this point of proceeding, Capt. T.
gave the wink to his steward? tern,
who in a clandestine manner handed
him a couple of pistols, one ot them
be instantly presented at the English
Ctptain, saying as he did so :
Sir, you are my prisoner. I am
that Yankee devil T. about whom you
have been so freely speaking. Choose
row whether you will have your brains
blown out or surrender your'ship.'
Seeing in a moment that all resis
tance would be perfectly useless, the
Englishman said .
I surrender.' Then he gave orders
to bis 2d Lieutenant, who had charge
of bis boat, to return to his vessel and
baul down the celors, which was im
mediately done. A prize crew was
then put on board and the prisoners
were transferred to the Macedonia,
and the result was that one of the rich
est prizes taken during the war arrived
safely in the United States.'

Dr. J. C. Aver,
Sir The. Cherry Tectoral is much inquU
ted after. Several'of our host Physiciaiii
have lued it, three of them in their owu ran
and always with the huppiest rll'ects. Th
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regaid to every
new rt-medv; and il is only ofter undoubted
evidence of value In any eriicle.ihat anything
like a general confidence tun be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of this combina
tion of ageuls, (in iheGlmry Pectoral) proved
bryoud cavil by n-pcated trial under their own
observation, has compiled medical men tu
proclaim abroad its usefulness It is beyonl
all doubt li e bent general remedy we hue fo I
the Pulmonary A flections of th'n climato, at
tlie same time wdaiive and ixpectoruut
rare roiubination of properties. (.
Iu hd-e that it will prove il own reward,
I subscribe myself.
