From Natchez.—The U. S. ship Natchez, IS

It was expected she would sail early this morn

double complement of Midshipmen. Her cruise,
we understand, is limited to two months, during
which she will make a thorough search fur pirates
injthe West Indies,particularly those that murdered
the'erews of the New Priscilla and Attentive. We
have some reason to believe that the object of her

More Brazilian InsoUnct-srWe have seen a
a letter dated at Campeachy, Dec. 6lh 1928, which
relates to the detention and cottfi-cafion of the
ship Transit, of Bo-ton, the imprisonment efthe
master and owner, Capt. Michael W. Heed, and
the entire dispersion ot the crew, with the excep- I
tion of the cook and steward, for no other reasons !
than his being guilty of exciting suspicions—in the
minds of those who were determined he should ap
pear suspicions, whether justly or not. The Tran
sit avilved at Sisal on the 8th of November, with
the intention of loading with that country’s pro
duce, and brought goods and merchandize to the
amount of about $20(10, and a package of letters
directed to Vinal and Shields, her consignees. She
was entered according to all the formalities of the
law, and the papers of the captain were complete,
but (he contemptible opinion which has gained
ground, of the American power, and of their tamo
bess in submitting to abuses, encouraged the offi
cer* at that place to persist iu their villany, impri
son the captain, confiscate the cargo and send tiie i
crew on shore, *o live or die, as they could. The '
j remonstrances of the Consul were treated with in- 1
attention and disdain, and there the matter rested. ]
These occurences are powerful comments on the 1
forbearing policy which lias been pursued towards
this petty faction. The American Consul at that j
place has no more weight than a perfect stranger.
He is alone, and his office from want of support ■
from the government, is held iu the most profound '
contempt, and his submission to so many outrages,
they imagine proceeds from either personal or go- !
vernmental fear. The English alone, by the fre- i
'qiient visits of their men of war to that coast, have j
created lor themselves some degree of respect, aod
hence Biitisb subjecia have suffered the fewest
There are hopes of improvement since the reins of >
our government have passed into new hands. The j
promptness of the President’s measures in regard '
to piracy and his uniform decision of character, and j
jealousy of our national honor, aro convincing i
proofs that further acts of insolence will meet with 1
a proper acknowledgment; and that foreign powers '
will find it rather dangerous to encroach" too far.
Cjiarlxsto.v, April 3.—The brig <Jen. C.ids
den, Capt. Aveilhc, arrived at this port yederday
In 4 1-2 days from Havana. We are indebted to
Capt. A. for the Noticio-o Merchantil of the 27th
ult. and a Prices Current of the 2lstv We al-o 1
Jearn from the same source the following gratfy- :
ing particulars in relation to the capture of a g»n»
of i-’irates:
The Br. brig Nancy Pierce, 1" days from I
Guernsey, arrived at Havana, Zlil ult. Captain '
P. was boarded 18th ult. by a Lieut, from H. ff.
M. brig Victor, in lat. 22 20, N. Ion. 82 W. who '
• informed him that the brig had captured a Pirati- j
cal vessel, and had the prisoners on board bound 1
to Janiiaca to deliver them to Admiral Flemming, I
1 commanding on that station; that they had been’ |
obliged to hang several of them lor attempting to
take possession of the brig. The officer likewise
Meted that they had information of four other Pi
raticsl vessels which had been cruizing otr Capo
Antonio, and warned Capt P. to give the Capo al
wide birth. The Captain of the Nancy, did not
enquire how many Pirates were taken, but sup
posed there must have been at least from SO to
100, ns the crew amov tiled to 110, men, and car- '
ried 18 guns. Capt. Pierce had given the above ’
particulars on affidavit.
The Fr. brig L’Amedce, of Bordeaux, Captain
Botireu, railed from Lxuina on the 2d March, for
Havana, which vessel was fallen in with, within
five miles of Cape Antonia, by the shin Beniamin
Morgan, totally abandoned. Several boxes and
trunks of merchandize were scattered about the
decks, which led to tho belief that she had beer,.
robbed by pirates and the crew murdered, us the
decks were all stained with blood* The above m-,
formation was communicated by the French Con
sul to the U. S. Agent at llavanna, on (he 22d nil.
It was supposed that the J/Atnedee was carried
into New-Orleans by the Benjamin Morgan.
An attempt had been made, hut was fortunately
frustrated, to assassinate tho Intcndant of Havana.
In addition to the above we learn fr,»n» the II i
vans Noticiofo Mereaotil of the 27th March, that
the Spanish armed schooner Habanera had been
cruising in search of a piratical schooner which was
; said to be stationed near the Colorado* (keys.)
frrom information given to the commander,at a lute
hour of tho night, on the 2'; J ult. he was enabled
on the succeeding day to find the above piratical
ve-sel, and preparing himself for action bore down '
upon her, having in company two barges_On
^approaching her, however, sho was found derert
ed. Two dead bodies lay «n the deck near the
pivot gun, and threo more floated alongside the
vessel. The deck was strewed vrllli blood, which
had been so abundant as to run out through tho
rcopplo holes, from this circumstance, t?>«* offi
cer of die Snani-h schooner conjectures that th«
pirates had fought and destroyed one smother
| They had previously robbed a biig and stranded
tier r*fx C »j»e Anfonio.
The impression at Havana was that the Pirates
of the above vessel had been all exe-uted immedi
st. ly alter their espfnre, by order of the Comman
der of the Spanish Vessel of War,
The armed Schooner and her Prize had arrived
af Bahia Honda.
We also gather from Capt. Aveilbe that *• re

-Mr. Smith of .1 fariffand, made thefollowing
tit per l:
The Committee on Finance, to which was refer
red, on the 12th day of January, l82J>, the fol
lowing resolutions :
Resolved, That the 5th section of the Sinking
Fund act, of 1817,-ohght to bo eo nmetided as In
authorize the Commissioners of that Knud to make
purchases of the Public Debt, at its current mar
ket price, whenever, in their opinion, such pur
chases can be made beneficially for the interests
of the U. S., and consistently with existing en
2. That llie 4th section of the same act, which
authorizes a retention of two millions of surplus
revenue in the Treasury, ought to be repeated,
and that the first section of the Sinking Fund act
of 1790, which directs the whole of the surplus
money in the Treasury to be appliet) to the pay
ment of the Public Debt, ought to be revived and
continued in force.
2. That the lianb of (lie U. S. ought to be re -
quired to make a compensation to the people of
the U. S. for the use of the balances of public mo
ney on its hands., *
4. That a puMic deht is a putilfc burthen; anil
that the presemdebt of the U. S. is a burthen up
_on the people ot the f J. S., to the amount of mote
’than 15 millions of <Wlars per annum, from which
they ought to he relieved as eoon as possible, am
may be relieved in four years by a “ tirnetu” and
** judteiaus” application of the means within tL«
power of Congress.
5. That an abolition of duties, to (he amount of
the ten millions of dollars, now annually levied or»
account ot the Public Debt, ought to be made au
soon as that debt is paid, and may he made, ac
cording to the present indication? of the revenue,
without diminishing the protection due to an .
branch of domestic manufactures, and with man
ifest advantage to the agriculture and commerce
of the country.
. That the first resolution contemplate* autho: -
zing ** the Commissioners of tbe Sinking Fund, to
purchase the public debt, at its current market
I'rirt, when purchases rau be tirade beneftciul to
the interests of the U. S., aud consistently with
existing, engagements.”
The granting of such authority mast be preilf*
cated on the idea, that there will be in the Treasu
ry, surplus funds inapplicable to any of the dab:
of tiro U. y., and, therefore, an authority to pur»
chase is the only thoile by wlm-h the public money
can be applied to the payment of the debt.
In order to ascertain whether that was the fact
the committee applied to the Secretary cf th'o
Treasury for information, and have received two
documents, which they submit as part of their re
port; that merited A, gives a view of the debt ,
(excluding the Bank dehl and 3 per cents.,) and
tiie manner of its redemption. By which it is
clearly shown, not admitting a doubt, (hat there
are of debts, rette unable at pleasure, which wmi
the iuterest payable, will be amply sufficient un
til tbe 1st July, 1932, to ab.-oib the whole of the
ten millions of dollars per annum, yestfed by (.tw
in the Commissioners ot the Sinking Fund, to en
able them to pay the principle and interest of the
public debt, or a larger amount {f required, with*
out the necessity of purchase at pi ices above par
or real value. The same document also shows,
that ot the ten millions payable in IS32, there will
be about a million of dollars inapplicable on the
