We learn fiom the New Orleans Courier of the fith inst., that a mutiny broke out on board the ship Nicholas Diddle, of New Yoik, for New Orleans, on the 55th of Octo ber. One of the steerage passengers, who imagined that he had been grossly insulted by the cook, made a violent attack on that person, and inflicted sever-. ' al wound upon him with a hatchet. The excite ment soon became general, the cabin passage,, taking sides wiih the officeis of the sb.p. ,,) lrioM, in Ihe steerage being of course disposed lo aid their comraJes. The offender, 'through the prompt con duct of the mate, was soon secured and placed in irons; but the passengers wrre obliged to remain under arms for forty eight hour. He will t nnd in Niw Oilisn.

A man mmed Car. pr was arrested and put upon his trial for these murders, but on sccount or the juiy in his case not being sble to agrpp, ha was set at liberty. Some circumstances have since transpired, that may lead if true, to the puni-hment of tho real participator in this awful irsftpdy. They are these : On Wedneiday night last a mm named Augus. Ins Millet, wptit into a fiermnn boarding house in Nrw Market street near Pp;, and got into a con-t-ovrrsy with one of the bonders named William II' yer ; afterwards he rptnrned lo his own stop, pimi plarp. which it nrpms was in this r-amo neigh b.trlmod, end on the last night he enme back and renewed tlip mbje.-i ofthe prppp.ling evening. Thpy became much exciicd. when another mint, Adam FeicblrnfeMt interlpred and ciusida rpconcilia tion to lake place between them. Miller then took the latter aside and told him tint he was one of tbp men who committed the a hove murdpr, that hp had killed Mr. Parke by cut. ting hi throat, and that Heyer was his acrom lire nnd had destroyed the life of the child. He said that by giving him up hn could make f 1000, but LcBged him to say nothing about it until he got an n tthcr night's rest. I immediately told 1 lever the statement which ho had made, and Heyer then wr-nt for a watchman and had him arrested. Hp w as taken to the Northern Liberty police of fice, where he con fosse I his participation in the murder, nnd statp.l that hp bad an accomplice, but would not implicate Heyer. He refused to givo nnv particulars in regard lo thp manner that these iiufoitiiiiatp individuals were put to death. Ha was this morning brought before Mayor Cannon, and by him committed for a further hearins. No additional partieuhr were elirite.l from him. 'Phc ainir abonothcr is a singular oiip, and might induce supposition that thp man i insmc ; but thorp nre not the slightest indications of it. The object in making the confiKsion, he ta!ed. was on account of the disturbed state of his mind not havinc. Is en able to obtain any rest since the commission of Ihe dreadful deed. 'A7. M, miri.
