CHARLESTON, O~&ober 18,
Lait Friday was brougus round from Se
wee Bay, the yacht Diljgence, after having
been run into Buii’s alet by two Fr-acamen,
and four negroes that were on board, belong
ing to the owner, a gealoman inhabitany of
the island of Surinam.
- All the information we are able at present
to give, is from the following negroes, wiz. a
negroe man named Jack, a boy by the name
of Tom, and a wench called Sally, who f{iy,
that their master (Capr. Francis Schlegei) was
owner of the said yacht, and proceeded from
Surinam to Demarara—that their master had
fold some of his property ia that iflind, and
receivad the money-—that in his vayags o
Surinam, he went athore on a desolate i{lind,
where hefaund two Frenchmien in distress, and
upon the principle of humanity took them o 2
board-—that b:tore they reached Surinam, the
two Frenchmen took an opportunity to murder
their mafier, and they, fa attempting to save
him, were stabbed and cut in the most cruel
manaer—thar alter they had killed their master,
and taken hismoney, which they divided, they
proceeded for this port, rua into Bull’s, and
came to an anchor—that one of the French
men went on {hoe at Sewce, and the other
took the boar, and with one of the negroes
came to this city.
Infermation of the zbove horrid murder be
ing given to the Judg: of the Admiraliy, a
warrant was iffuad by him to spprenend the
perpetrators ; and it is supposed that the
Frenchman who came to owa was apprized
of his danger, an< made his escape 0n board a
Spanish brig ther faiied [immcdiately afcer he
embarked.
