From the le.imseter’s statement, t.he~e was among the Indians, wlio fired first, n white man, Esprit, well built and athletic) and dressed with white pantaloons, calico shirt, black vest, hat and whiskers. As the driver sprung out of the wagon on one side, the whi*e man entered it on the other, who said, according to the reamer’s report—“Pon’t run, and wc will not hurt you.” One ot the escort was had!v shot through tfie body, hut he was taken of! hv his comrades, who behav ed with great courage and determination. I.eMers received at Black Creek,, !<*th April from Tampa Bay, dated 3th of Apii , says •‘Two Indians came tiieiea lew evenings be fore, at tattoo—said they came from llospitark exhibited white leathers and other indications desirous of being at peace. 1 he information does not sav, whe'her the commanding officer secured and confined tue.se hostilesj the pre sumption is, that he did so, as it was Gc*n.

[•Sa van nab Georgian, j Tiia Ci\xt Boy.—This wonderful boy, who is to bcexhibited to the public during the pre sent week in this city, is the son ol Mr. Deu tuow Barber, of Richmond, Chittenden co. Vt. lie was born m May 1-36, and is now about three years and eleven months old. He is four teet in height; weighs a trout UK) pounds; and with the exception of a slight curve of the legs below the knee,occasioned by walking too early, and the great weight of the body, is iu every res;>eci proportioned like a man; and has the muscular strength of a boy ot sixteen. Th»* imud and general expression of the face exhibit the spi ighiliness and prying curios ity oft he child of six or eight years, while the hair, whiskers.voiceand physieial lineaments are those ot a man of 25 on 30.

[ Albany Journal. Rf.v. Thom vs Ali ev.—Rev Thomas Al len was first minister of Fiuslield. When the American rev dution commenced, he, like the great bo ly of the clergy, ardently espoused the cause of the oppressed colonies, and bore li:9 testimony against the oppression of the mother country. When in anticipation of the conflict which finally took place at Benning ton, the neighboring country was rouseit to arms', he used his influence to increase the band of patriots, by exciting his townsmen to proceed to the battle ground. A compa ny was raised in his parish and pro ceeded. Some causes, however, were found to retard their progress on t lie* way. Hearing of the del iv, fie proceeded immediately to lom them, by his influence quickened their l'mrch, and soon presented them to (den. Stark. Teaming Pom him that he meditated an attack on the enemv, he said he would f,,ht, hut that he could not willing'v heat arms against them, mi’ll h** h:» I invited them to submit. He was insensible to tear, and ac cordingly proceeded so near as to make him selfdistinctly heard in their camp, where, af ter taking a stand on a convenient eminence, he commenced hi^ pious exhortations, urging them to lav downdieir ;rm<. He was answer ed hy n voll»*v of mnsquetry, which lodged their contents in fhe log on which he stood Turning calm v to a fremd who had fol lowed him under cover of the breast work v/hich formed his footstool, fie said—‘‘M>w give me a gun;" and this is said to be the first \inerican g'in wliicii sp >k** on t!»at memora ble occasion. lie continued to bear his purl till the battle wasdeci led in favor ot the Ameri can anus, and contributed honorably to that result.

Mr. Hawley, Alexander Lee, Esq. to Miss Henrietta P. Barckoft. At Van Buren, Arkansas, on the 11th of March, by the Rev. Mr. Stiggins, Mr. Hobart Key, formerly of Prince George’s county, Md. to Mrs. Abigail Joses, of Mew Madrid, Mis souri. DIED, At his resilience in Middletown, Rhode Island, on the *23d of Fehnwry last, George Irish, Esq, in the 79th year of Ins age, leav ing an affectionate wife, many relatives, and numerous friends to deplore the loss. In the early part ol his life, the deceased was actively and extensively engaged in mercantile pur suits. to which he had been raised, and by which he acquired, not only an independent fortune, but a high anti well deserved reputa tion for capacity and strict probity. Subse quently he retired from business, and settled himself and family, on the valuable estate of Ids deceased father, where he continued to live in peace ami plenty to the day of his death, greatly and truly beloved by his family connexions, and universally respected by all his acquaintances for his personal worth— leaving behind him, not otdy an affluent for tune, but what is infinitely more valuable, a snr.tless integrity. In ids general character and deportment, were happily blended, great modesty and kindness, with equal firmness of purpose—with a strong and vigorous intellect, highly improved by observation and experi ence. Prompt and active in the discharge of all the social duties and private charities of life, with ample means to carry out his benevolent feelings as a man and Christian, it may truly be said, that he was never unmindful thereof. Ilad be been ambitious of public distinction, none could have easily attained it; but his disposition and habits of life, strongly inclined him to pr* fer the real comforts of his own fireside, to the turmoils of public life—thereby verifying the maxim—that the “ post of honor is the private station.” P.

N. MILLS, I ap 17—td Supt. of Tolice. Fihe at Kingston, Upper Caxapa. A tre mendous fire occurred at Kingston, U. C., on the 17th inst. It broke out near the waterside in a new block of ware houses; it eaught from , the Hue of«a steamboat lying a* the wharf, which bad just arrivetl from Oswego, and was firing up to move to another part of the town. Near seventy buddings were burnt, and from 13 to 15,000 barrels of flour,besides large quan tities of pork, &c. The furniture of the steam boat GreatBritaiinvasdestroyed. The Uaf)f. j ofthe Americansteamboat from Oswego, (the ! accidental cause of this disaster,) was so alarm ed as to leave the port immediately. A great j deal ofthe prodnce consumed had been waif j ing to go up the Ridcou Canal as soon as it | opened. Loss supposed to be over half a mil lion of dollars.___ It is with regret that we learn of the cer tainly intended retirement by Mr. Richard Biddle of Pennsylvania from Congress. The speeches of Mr. Biddle are frequently models of logical precision and rhetorical force. In debate, he is unsurpassed. Ilis political spirit and independence are equally admirable. A letter from Washington, published in the Boston Mornin* Post, says of the proposed Van Buren Convention at Baltimore—“The conclusion is that no Convention, which can be called National will be held, and that so small a portion ofthe States will send dele gates, if at all, as tc render it desirable to dispense with the attempt to organise a con vention. £o far as the views of the democratic members of Congress are concerned, I feel fully warranted in saying that they are near ly unanimous against holding a Convention.” Steam-boat Racing.—We find the follow ing notice of a recent occurrence ol this highly reprehensible practice in the last Albany Ar gus : — “The splendid steam boats Albany and North America started from this city on Fri day morning, on a trial of speed. The New York Sun states that full 23,000 dollars were staked on the result. The boats were abreast of each other at Bristol, some forty miles be low-this city, when (as a natural consequence of high steam and racing) l he crank of the Al bany broke; and the race being ended, the North America put about, received the passen gers of the Albany on board, ami reached New York soon after 5 in the afternoon.” Frederick, (Md.)
