blowing during tbe afternoon of that day, after divine

and at about two, or half past two in the mornlag.it
blow a perfect hurricane from tbe northeast. Tbe rain
fell in torrenta, and the tea, lashed into a foam, waa
lighted up during tbe night by successive and continuone
flashes of lightning
There are several era oaptains and other sons of
L. Neptune on board, and they agree in declaring it to

Very hate from llaytlv
The Prus-s-ian bark Alfred Von Aversurld, Capt.
Xoht, arrived yesterday Ironi Cape Haytien,
whence she sailed on the 3d instant. We have
received by her the commercial decree of the Emperor,
a translation of which we give.
It is a tact well known, that our government
takes less care of its citizens abroad than any other
nation: leaving them to fight their own battles.
until, perhaps, some flagrant outrage, such as the
massacre of a ship's crew, or something oi the
sort, atirs them up, and induces them to inllict
summary justice on the offenders. The peculiar
situation of Hayti has, for many years, kept foreign
powers, and particularly our own government,
from interfering with her; but matters have now
reached such a point that longer forbearance on
our part becomes a crime ana gross injustice is
our citizens trading there.
la the beginning of January of the past year,
fhe Haytien government issued a decree, to take
effect on the 1st of February following, monopolizing
at fixed prices, the principal products of the
country, as well us the principal articles of imported
lor.ifin merchandise, such as American
provisions, Ac., cour-e linens, checks, cottons,
t ' Vc , the prices of which were also tixed, but at
low rates, irrespective of their cost, imposing a
heavy tine on any merchant or dealer who should
Attempt to sell higher tliau the prices tixed by tlir
tariff. Towards the end ot February, a second
decree made its appearance, modifying, as it was
called, the first, but bearing still harder on our
trade; early in August, a third caine out, monopolizing
additional articles; again on the 1st ot December
cume unoiher, increasing fourlold the export
duties on cotiee, cocoa, logwood, <Vc., to
take ?fleet on the 5th; and lastly, in order to cap
' the climax, comes out a tilin.ui the end of the tame
month, to go into operation on the 1st of January
of the preset year, ntono|>olizing nearly all the
remaining foreign articles, cutting down the prices
not only on such as might arive after that date,
but on nil importations already in store, with
order* to the authorities a( the dilliereut ports, to
take possession ot and remove the goods into
warehouses, to be provided by the government;
there to be disposed ol for account ot iheir owners,
who have no alternative but to receive whatever
i they may produce, in depreciated pa^er, scarcely
the half of which is it possible to invest in cctl'ee
or other produce.
Can this be called anything but highway robbtry
T And to whom are we 10 look lor redress
but to our own government, whose utter indillerence
to nil representations, us well us to ilie ininy
pecuniary claims we already have against that
people lor previous outrages commuted on our
vessels and property, give u? little reason to hope
fer their pre-ent inlertereno- in our behalf, without
n public ?pp? al through the pin an.
I Our yearly exports to hayu exceed three millions
; you may tnerefore judge ol the extent of
the losses o| our merchants, who liAve, at this
time, considerable stocks of provision*, \c , accu;
mutated nt the dillerent porta in the island, in anticipation
of the new crop ol culler, and the scarcity
and advanced price of the article in foreign
It might he well to add here, that merchant*
ate not allowed the alternative ol re-expiriing
such of their goods as air monopolized, alter they
have once keen landed, even wun ilie sacrifice of
the dunes, but have ijutnly to remain and see
them taken oat of their warehouse* and sold before
their eyea, wi'huut the power of ottering the
1 slightest resistance.

A Romantic and Myatcrloua Cmc-Abduction,
Incarceration, and Death.
A most extraordinary clroumetanoe, involving the
aarioua crime of murder, and alao a charge of larceny, |
waa developed at the United Statee District Attorney'*
office, yesterday. The whole story la one which pre- I
'eats rather a romantic featnre, comprising the ab- 1
duction. conventual incarceration, and subsequent
tudden death, of a female. It appears that, in the year
1816. Catheiine B Dillaway. sister of Ueorge VV. Dilla.
way, of No 889 Broad vay, New Vork, was abdueted
from the city of Baltimore, by a man named Hawkins,
and brought here, whence she was taken by him to
Kurope From the above period, until nea-ly eight
years ago, Dillaway never heard anything of his sister.
About, that time, 1841, he heard, through a priest, that
the had been placed in a La Trappe oonvsnt, at Staplerun
in l' n.l.nS tin .....S - i
"" i ? ""s1""" "F"" " ;
pondei.ee with her, and since then has received several
coinmiinicallonn from bur. expressing aa anxiou i do ;
sire to return home, but statiug that she was prevented
by ber superiors. She. however, succeeded in getting
away from the couvent, tu o >usoi|iiene< of her brother
having written to the superiors of the institution,
threatening to invoke the aid of the British authorities
to ocuiprl her deliverance Mr. f>il]aw?y afterwards
received intimation that bis sister had sailed
from Liverpool, in the ship Andrew Foster on the 13th
November 1S4D and that the ship arrived lu this port
on the It ill January instant. Mr D. was subse'iu-ntly
ml ruied by Ann Truth>rd one of the passengers
that, when the vessel was within f< ur dsv's sail
of the city of New Vork. his M-ter died suddenly,
aud that in a tew h-'iirs after her death ?namely,
at twelve o'clock at night her btdy was thrown
overbear d, by the direct inns, aud under the or Jers, of
Jam>s Mornssv a fellow voyager in the same snip, who
had taken passage as her servant. It is stated that
Mirt lfiiiaway ?a? in the possession of a large sum of
money , and a Cou-iderahle <|uaut ity of clothing; that
she had paid ter the passage of Morrissy who was entirt
ly deetitute ot niesn-of his own. It is nls i alleged
tb.it Morrissy was a gardener at the LaTrappe convent,
ami subeeijuinUy held a situuti <n at the port frem
whence the Andrew Foster salted, where, on levrning
that Miss Liillaway was a passenger he embarked; he
became her attendant made purchases fer her, and,
about two o'clock of the day she died. Morrissy gave her
romctbing to drink out of its cop, winch he said wss
wine. A large portion ot Miss I) 's wearing apparel has
bieu found in the posses-ion of Morii-sy and no money
belonging to the deceased has b en discovered in linr
boxes, bu' a sum in grid consisting of six sovereigns,
t get her with some email change, has b?en found in the
poises ion of Morilsv It lutiher appeared 'hat the
a"eii-ed, en arriving here, solicited a -ituationfrom Mr.
l)illa?aj, mi d wheuit was procured for him, refused
toeccvptu: end that ha had remarked to one or the
passei pers that there w uiil be nothing sail in New
York about the deatti ot ilfss Dillawav The ab >ve
