Then thera were active, nimble hands to get that rum out quick into the small boat, and there was a certain Custom House officer there to help and see that it was done right, but, singular as it may seem, he has nuver taken occasion yet to report that as among his official duties. Some alarm was occasioned, and the unloading of the schooner was stopped when she still had on board 200 five-gallon demijohus filled with that obhoice rum. A little before daylight she ran off down shore past Savin’s Rock, and these 200 demijohns were thrown overboard one after another at a littlo distance apart. While this was going on, when the water was just lighted up by morning, a Custom House officer happened to be looking down that way through a big spyglass and saw the long line of things that bobbed up and down on the waves in the walks Afi \he schooner. Ile went right down thers va a tug to sce what those things were. He gota few of the demijohns, but the water was pretty rough that morning and the tide was coming in, so that pretty near all of them were smashed together on the rocks. There was nobody on that scnooner when the tug caught up with ber that had noticed any demijobns,"”’ “ Has there been any smuggling since then 1" “Not that I know of 1f there is any, nobody comes around to tell me aboul it. But T don’t think there is much any more. When a fellow is caught smuggling nowadays be is put in jail, and that’s uncomfortable.” NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

The Ezport Mercantile Advertiser and British Prices Current gives the Prospec _tus for subscriptions for shares in the St. Croix Central Factories with the following introductory remarks : “In our July No.we made some re marks on these interesting possessions of the Davish Crown which we are glad to observe have been highly appreciated aud CORIC(] by the St. Thomas newspapers. Ve know the difficulty ina tropical climate to get people to bestir themselves, 80 as to accomplish any given end that requires exertion, yet we trust that the “SveAr CeNTRAL Faciories” Company, whose prospectus we give below, wili be only one of the efforts that our friends will make to raise the present condition of these Islands: and we shall be all the more glad if they are able to do it without the aid of Euglish or French capitalists. Should, however, help be needed, we have little doubt but mortgages or prefer eoce shares could be floated here, seeing that the matter is dona fide and must com mand respect. We 'hear on this side, with what truth we know not, that the island of St. Croix, where the Factories are proposed to be carried on, has been somewhat impover ished by continuous erops. This is a cir cumstance that cai easily be rectified by a cargo ortwo of Peruvian Guano. The system of a Joint Stock Company is par ticularly suited for making improvements in the manufacture of sugar assuch a com pany by an expenditure of a portion of its capital, can become the possessors of the newest and most approves methods of the machinery, both tor the cultivation of the cane and the manufacture of sugar; which will both increase the quantity and quality of the produce at a reduced cost —a circumstance that small planters can rot afford to do. It becomes the resident plauters at oncer - - to put their shoulders to the wheel. “ Providence helps thos: who help them selves” ; and, doubtless the success of the scheme lies in a great measure in their hands.

(From the Bt. Thome Tidende ) Tur following is an extract of a letter, dated Moutserrat, September 25th, addressed to us by G W. Westensy, the well known M-teorologist : Sir,— ® ® e = k] e £ “ Some account of the late storm as experienced in this Island may interest many of your readers. “About 11 & m.on the 18th of September, the wind which had been blowing very moderately from the N. E., during the morning, veered to the North with squalls of wind and rain, thd-Baromtter . slowiy falling. In the aftrrnoon the force of the wind increased, changing to West of North, with a rough sea. At sunset the squalls of wind became more violent with occasional showers, and the sppearance tothe N. West was dark and threatening. Up to this time tha Barometer had fallen three tenths. About 7 p- m. there was a decided lull, but not a calm, indicating that the centre of the Cyclove was passing at no great distance to the North of the Island. About 7.30 the wind began to blow in heavy squalls from the Wex~t, changing during the night to South West, and early on the morning of the 13 was blowing moderately from the S. Llast, withalmost a clear sky, and a calm sea. No damage was sustained in this Island. During the latter half of the storm there was vo rain, and no thunder and lightning, and no swell or heavy sea preceded the storm at this Island. From our experience in Montseirat, and from the reports received from other Islands, I gather—that this Cyclone originated not far to the South East of the Leeward Islands, as it was not preceded by a heavy sea—that during the carly part of its course it was of small cxtent, and by no means violent—that as it progressed to the N. West it rapidly increased in size and force, and became a destructive Hurricane in the neighbourhood of the Danish Islands—that 1t progressed in a right line at the speed of from 10 to 14 miles per hour. From want of iiformation respecting the changes of the wind at the various Islauds dwiing the Storm, we are unsble to trace the cour-e of its centre; but it appears to have passed to the South of St. Thomas, nearly over St. Croix. over a part of Porto Rico, and to the North of Hayti, and would probably be felt at Turks Island before turning to the Eastward. We learn from Cape Hayti that the wea-_ ther there on the 14th ultimo had been very bad. The hurricane which visited us on th= 14th havinga'so reached that place. It has caused very much damage to the coffee erop ; destroyed and damaged about 30 houses in the town, and amongst the shipping there has been soms injury. A Dominican Government sciooner has been lost with all hands.
