AND DESPATCH, AT
New York, Sept. 13.
Pira*c Michigan .—We have conversed with a
passenger on board of the steam boat from Albany
yesterday, who left Niagara Falls on last Saturday
evening. He stated that the "condemned vessel
got loose from lier moorings a little after the appoint
ed time, and was proceeding favourably until within
about a mile of the edge of the fall, when she struck
against a rock with great violence, and carried away
both of her masts. After this she tossed and rolled
about violently in the rapids (one of the larger ani
mals, the buffalo made a complete and safe
cape from her,) and was finally, precipated over the
great fall ut the Horseshoe. I he sight is stated to
have been a very interesting one, and was -viewed
bv an immense number ol spectators.

MOURNFUL TRAGEDY.
On the death of John Webb, David Morrow, John Harris,
Henvy Lewis, David Hunt, and Edward Lindsey t six
Militia-men who were condemned to die,-tile sentence
approved by Major Gen. J ACKsON, and by his order the
whole six shot.
O ! did you hear that plaintive cry,
Horne on the southern breeze ?
Saw you .lohn Harris , earnest pray
Eur mercy, on his knees !
Low to the earth he bent, and pray'd
For pardon trom his chief;
But to liis earnest prayer for life
Jackson , alas ! was deaf.
*• Spare me"—he said—" 1 meant no wrong
" My heart was always true :
" First for my Country's cause it beat,
" And next, great Chief, for you.
"We thought our time of service out
'Thought it our rig-lit to go :
"We meant to violate no law ;
" Nor Wish'd to shun the foe.
" Our officers declared that we
" Hail hut three months to stay ;
M We se ved those three months faithfully ,
" Up to the latest day.
••No one suspects intended wrong ;
" Tlie judgment only erred ;
"Insuch a case, O noble Chief,
" Let mercy's voice be heard.
"At home an aged mother waits
" To clasp her only son ;
"A wife, and nine »mal! children
"This arm depend upon.
" Cut me not off from those dear ties—
" Nor send me to my doom,
O 'tis a dreadful thing to die,
" And moulder in the tomb !
"Sure mercy is a noble gem
" On every Chieftain's brow :
" More sparkling than a diadem :
" O ! exercise it now.—"
'Twas all in vain, John Harris' pray'r,
'Tis past the soul's belief!
Hard as the flint was Jackson's heart :
lie would not grant relief.
He order'd Harris out to die,
And five poor fellows more !
Young gallant men in prime of life
To welter in their gore ! !
Methinks I hear the muffled drum,
And see the column move ;
here they come : HovV sad their looks !
Farewell to life and love !
See six black coflhns rang'd along,
Six graves before them made ;
Webb, Lindsey. Harriss, Lewis, Hunt,
And Morrow kneeled and prayed.
They kneel'd and pray'd, and thought of i.omk,
And uli its dear delights.
—The deadly tubes are levelled now—
The scene my soul affrights !
Sure he will spare ! Sure Jackson yet
Will all reprieve but one—
O hark ! those shrieks ! that cry of death !
Th-. dreadful deed is done !
AU six militia men were shot}
Aik 1 O ! it seems to me ;
A dreadful dee«i—a bloody act
Of needless cruelty.

into a well, filled with fire damp. The particulars,
as they have been related to us, were as folloWsj
They had been engaged in digging the well, Utlll
had deceruled twenty feet. It was observed, the
night before, that, on coming out, the workmen
appeared unusually pale. On returning lo the work
yesterday morning, a brother inlaw of the young
Sauls, first attempted to descend, hut experienced
so much distress betöre lie reached the buttmtl, that
he requested to be drawn up. One of the young
men then got into the bucket, and was let doWlt
about half when he fell to the bottom of the well,
His brother immediately attempted to descend to
his relief, but likewise fell before reaching the bot
tom. The father then, contrary to the rein orna
trance of those about him, insisted on being et
down ; he had descended about Half Way, When hd
called out to be drawn up again, but. before be reach 3
ed the top, he also pitched out and fell dead— upon
his dead sons. Means were immediately taken to
recover the dead bodies, and attempts were made to
resuscitate them, but vitality was wholly extinct.
