MONSTERS OF THE SEA.
Tho following is communicated to the editor
of the New York Evening Post by an acquaint
ance, who will vouch for its authenticity.
Extract from tlie Journal of (he Supercargo of a vessel
recently returned from the East Indies.
“On our voyage out, iu-latitude 40, south,

forscveral hours by anumbt rof SeaMousfors,
of a description which neither tlio captain (who
had been to sea for 20 yoars, 7 or 8 voyages to;
India,) nor any one on board was’acquainted
with, or had ever seen. They were a species
of serpent, and carried their heads three Or
four feel out of water; their bodies appeared
of an irregular shape, resembling a sunken rock,
and wero covered with barnacles; their tails
xvero forked like a fish’s and very lafgc. \Vo
had a Very distinct viow of two-of them which
approached us from a direction .abeam of us,
and without npparenily taking scarcely any no
tice of jisr passed close under ousJiowsprit, and
to avoid running’ on them,' xve were obliged to
keop the vessel o(T, boingfearful of injuring her
copper. They nnpcarcd.to be thirty or forty
foot in length; and tit times moved through the
water wish great celtfrity. Some of them at a
short distance ill’ exactly resembled tho repre
sentation, and their ni pearancc gonerallywas
similafjar to the description I li-ive seen of the
Sea SeroenR whirl; nppeiired on our cost

On tho 21st Novemb r, the British Parlia
ment was opened. Tim King ;11 bis royal robes,
seated on his throne, delivered a speech to both
Houses, exactly, (as tlm Reporter savs) seven
minutos iu length; which all dm world will ac
knowledge, was a very proper length for tlie
speech of a king. In conuntis, as. will readily

oppresion of commerce nnd of n ude, and these

r . * THE PRESS. .
Tlio honourable Mr. Forsyth, of Georgia, i n
a late debate in Congress has scon fit to utter a
terrible anathema against tlio Press, which lie
contends, is a mcrO vehicle ofslander, libel and
licentiousness. Wc arc not aware, that the hon
ourable gentleman has over-been--thought of
consequence enough to merit from the corps of
•Editors more than a passing notice, though
it is probable, that some one has, heretofore
remarked with freedom upon tho honourable,
gentleman's conduct, as a statesman or a public
agont, and that he has tuken the present oppor
tunity to illustrate tlio gospel truth of tho maxim
pfHudibras—. ' ■ V’j,. r v - \ .
No man e’er felt tlm hit]Inr draw,
With goo'd opinion of the law. " ,
Or, it is possible, that the honorable gent’.e-
ntati may have been about to soli his vote for
President, and kindly wished to give warning,
to p’rintors and editors, that if they should not
keep quiet, they might expect a prosecution at
common law, whore truth Is a libel, and good
intention ■ a crime, and Tine and imprisonment
the.roward for publishing the one and exorcis
ing tlio other.
Disagreement of Editors.—At Richmond and
New York there are two-papers called Enqui
rers; at Nantucket and Amherst, Mass..two oth
ers, called Inquirers. Mr. Noah, of the X. Y.
Enquirer, objects to the Amherst folks, because
“they spell Enquirer with an I.” ?>!••. Jen.'is
pf tho Nantucket paper, protests against Mr.
Noah’s spelling Inquirer with an E; and tcljs

put'out other people’s I's" We should really

both tlio noun and vorn occur very frequently.
We would therefore inquire, by wlmt rule or
practice Mr.-^Noah is* justified, when he jum-
’bles together in the etymology of this word’a
Greek preposition and a Latin verb.;. We
have also a Gentincl, and several Sentinels to
keep a watchfnl eye upon our enemies, and
