Augusta, July 18.—We are informed by an officer of the late expedition, who was left at St. Marks, and who was present at the everu lion ol F raneis, that he had in possession when captured, a Hi tie Gun, prese uteri to him hy Ihe Prince I’egent,ami a tortoise smith-box set in gold, picseiited to him by the Queen of I’ng. laud ; and also a commission of Hrigadier Ge neral in the llntisb service.
