For the last four years he annually appropriated 15,000 francs, for the relief of insolvent deptors, chiefly for such as were artisans, deprived of the opportunities Î9 of labor. His charity was unostentatious and H his name concealed. I11 the course of these H !»uv years one hundred ami forty poor dep H fit's, were thus set at liberty. * is ACCIDENT.— \ large collection of per sons assembled yesterday morning at Court laml st. wharf, under the expectation of seeing the pirates who arrived here yester day in the British brig of war Rifleman. About twelve o'clock a boat was observed timing from the brig full of men who were Supposed to be the pirates. Curiosity induced many persons to get on the that H'guard, in order that they might have a better opportunity of seeing them. When j tile boat reached the guard, Mr. Morris, the 1 • Marshal jumped out and the bridge or neral ,nstantlv gave away, and about thirty persons were precipitated into the water.
