The attachmmt was Issued by Judge Brown, of the L'nlted states Circuit court. These men were engaged originally at a salary of 11'tO a m nth each. They were notified this morning that they wnulr only receive HI each. Hence the attachnKi.t Kl fid did not get her crew on board at s o'clock this morning, as expected. but Instead was served with notice that American sailors were Independent As the men have been engaged, they have been given orders for $10. one month's pa, j to be paid after the vessel is twenty- I four hours out. The orders are signed by Quail & Wild. I This morning representatives of this I firm called on Flint & Co., and wanted to know whether It was the Brazilian Government or Flint & i'o which Is responsible for the payment of the or ders. The men. It wa stated, are not disposed to trust President Pcixoto's Government and Quail A Wild being likewise cau ' tlous. gave notice that they would hold the men until given assurance that Flint A Co. would be resjKinslble. Additional objection to the contract Is made because it provides that the men are only under service until the vessel is landed In Hio Janeiro, which, at most, will hardly take more than a month. The question now arises, and Is caus ing much excitement among the men. as to what will be .1 ine with those who do not wish to stay in active service after the ship arrives in the Brazilian port. The sailors ay that when their suits, tobacco, blankets. &c. are paid for and deducted from their salary there will. be m.lhlnp left of their ttrt month's fayment. and they will be stranded in Irazll with nothing und very little chance of getting back home. Karly this morning workmen began clearing away tools from Kl 'Id. and by 10 o'clock she was ready to leave the wharf at the foot of Jomlemon street. Brooklyn. It was stated that she would le taken opposite Fort Wadsworth. where she would tie anchored to receive ammunition, and that afterwards she w... ild be taken outside the Hook to ad lust ner compassing Mr Flint.
