The reasons of his Majesty, of tho Neth erlands, or of the‘‘Illustrious arbitrator,” as President Jackson styled hint, aro said to bo of a curious and extraordinary character. A se cret session was held in the Senate on I' riday forenoon, oil the reception of tho communica tion which was immediately transmitted by the (Governor; und oppareutly it was of some im* ship.' 'fills eiuizor I stated, was a British vessel; b*‘r rig was that of it'cutter, and bur name the Grecian; ,her forco' was four, gnus, and crew consisted of forty |tteu and officers—all told.— Tim Buccaneer of modern days, or rather Pi* rate, then in sight and at aucltor, waslhecel- obrated Sarragotiana, nlaigo topsail schooner, niouu ling one long heavy pivot-gun, with a crew of ninety of tho most cruel and determin ed murderers that the records of piracy con* tain any accounts of. Shu had lung wngi d a war of extermination on the traders of those teas, and in some cases had even audaciously exchanged shots wi.h CruiZCrs, and put them at ilcfi met! by Iter almost supernatural speed.-— Thu Grecian, iisr antagonist, ^as on the con trary, rntlier a dull sailer, und it was only iu the’ continuance of -the then existing calm any hope of capturing this tormidaldo freebooter seemed probable. “All hands shorten sail, alioyl" tusounded from the throats of a rough honest boatswain and his mate—and the sails of the cutter were quickly brailed up and haul ed down. “Get out the sweeps, and run iu the guns clear fur sweeping; hurry, and get grummets on!” Tim Older was obeyed with alacrity, and, ere tho land was perceptibly clour of the morning's misty veil, tho cutter moved nt a rapid rate, propelled by the pipings und cheering efforts .of as lively a crew as ever graced the ducks of a man-of-war. “Give way, my bullies, and we’ll got the fox out of his holo before broakfist—and give gallows* poim such a decoration as it lin- novel had!— Give way and they aro ours;" exclaimed tho commander, encouraging tho exertions of his roon. “Mind your helm and keep her N. E., that will run us dear of the Cape’s shoals, sir,” said the Captain to bis executive officer; “Aye, nye, sir.” By this timo tho sun was out, und (ho fog broke and scattered itself in small col* umns urouttd tho undergrowth of the Capo and edgo or the horizon, rendering plainly visible tho object ol their search—the during Sarrng- owantt—then deliberately weighing her anciiur, and with u part of her mon aloft casting loose her sails. Tito - spot she cliosu for her tempo rary harbour was a small nook or bay, so horn- mod in by shoals that tho only outlet‘was through tho narrow channel tho Grecian was theu entering by, so that no probability oxisted of her gelling away from them in the minds ot these hardy Britons. “Uubocket your grum mets—lay in your sweeps, nnd run out youi guns,” cried the < Akers—'“And pipe to quar ters, Mr. Cntharpin.” The -order was obey ed, arid the men mustered at their respective guns. "Lay off your aprons und cut tompions —rant homo a grist ol grape extra for these fel lows, they like forced meat balls better than cold rolls—prick yonr catridges—prime—cock your locks—stand by.

By this timo tho vessels wero both fast closing, the pirate having got completely under weigh with the foresail hanging in the brails, so as to fight ihoit Long Tom. The Grecian hoisted hei jib nnd hauled out her mainsail, which brailed up (in tho place of lowering like must sloops,) and was laying off and on tho mouth of this channel, wailing bor antagonist, whoso intentions be- spoko contempt of her, and her preventive powers. 'Hoist our colors sir,' said tho En* ssoguinary encounter. • Where is your Cap* 1 portunce, us they were with closed doors a lain,'—‘Esta nqaie,' said several pointing to a jgood part ,qf the forenoon.

LIFE LINE. (The foregoing Tale, which is founded on fact, is from the forthcoming volume, entitled -'Sketchesaiid Scenes of Sea life. By an American Naval OUT- ere."] GIBBS THE PIRATE. ty . piracy und murder committed on bo.ird tho Biig Vineyard, has tnude to his counsel, since his condemnation, a confession fraught with hotriblo and frightful atrocities. Among other acts that lie confesses ho comitlcd, lie says, that sjme two or tltrco years ago ho was tho com mander of a piratical vessel which sailed from thu Island of Cuba. That whilst out on a cruise, ho captured a valuable American mer chant ship,' with a numerous crew and passen gers,-‘nil of whom excepting a female, tho wife of ono of tho passengers, ho put to death.— That ho lorccd tho fomalo to his embraces, for some wooks compelled her to be his wife, but ilio cruise being up and it being necessary fur him to mako a port for u fresh supply of provis ions, for fear tho female might expose his atro cities, ho cut her throat and threw hor'ovcr- buurd. The story of this man’s lifo stands un surpassed in the black catalogue of crime, and it will bo remembered long after the histories of Pierre, Lc Grand, and Kidd aro forgotten. Tho name of Gibbs, which tho man bears, is an assumed one, to which, for (he sake of his family ho set up n claim. His real nurne is known only to his counsel, to whom it was communicated with the charge of profound se- ciccy. Ho is a native of Rhode Island, how ever, and is known to be attached by affinity and consanguinity to one of the most respecta ble nnd ancient families of tlio State. No punishment which Hcaveu lias yet show ered on the damned;—no punishment which the ingenuity of m in can conceive, can bo com mensurate with tho foul deeds of this domon, who despoiled a lovely woman—then murder ed her, and in tho latter moments of his wither ing career, boasteJ of his own villany, and un provoked acts of brutal violence and uupnrallel- ed ruthless butchery.—Providence Paper. the latter part of the forenoou; and n session was ordered iifthe afternoon on purposo to dis cuss the subject matter. it pr i of it Maine by the late arbitration of the King of tho Netherlands.

It de nies the validity of tho decision upon two grounds: 1st. that the late King of the Nether lands having lost the greater part of his king dom; and become peculiarly dependent upon Great Britain, is m> longer an independent ar biter, and his decision is not binding: and, 2d. That ho did not decide tho question submitted to him, and his decision is therefore n nullity.

A bright tl ish, a crash—-and tho Pirate’s iron messenger of death preceded the loud re port of ilieir thirlv- w-., for such were Jteir guns' calibre, and cut iway their jibstay, and crippled the tn-isi head of the cutter.— •Ready? ready? all ready sill' ‘Fire.* And British sailors (might the bold outlaws they ne ver new how to rciurn such marine civilities, u c.iraje was heard, and sho fired ngain, she slew some four poor fellows on tho Grecian's deck, and wounded several others. 'Load and fire my lads, briskly, give hor mariners u touch of musketry,’ exclaimed tho captain, and the bat tle waxed close and Warm. ‘Mr. Catliarpin,’ said tho sa ling-master, ‘gel a runner on the end of tho lore-slay, und boose it up for the present; sail-trimmers haul in that main-sheet and drop the peak of tho main-sail,' whicit was soon done, and tho men ordered to their guns again. ‘Give her language my lads'—‘aye, aye.’ ‘Bravely done, cover, hurrah,’ shouied tho British tar;, as the fore-n;ast of iho Piruie, tottering, fell ovor the buns, declaring they had them at their mercy. Fur a moment or so a death-like stilness prevailed on either sido, and a crowd of men ou tho schonnor’s decks, with hatchets, cutting away ihe tigging that held the wreck of the fore-mast alongside, sitowed they wero getting it doarof their long gon for further hostile purposes.

Sou'h Curolinn, feeling herself greatly aggrieved by the Taiiff, contends for (lie light of pronouncing tho law unconstitution al, und thereby nullifying it, so far us sho is con cerned. Site claims tho privilege of remaining iu the Union and enjoying till tho benefits, und at the same time, tho right to nullify overy jaw winch imposes on her unwelcome burthens, To mo such a pretension appeals most unrea sonable. Our Federal Coustitution was the result of a spirit of compromise and concilia tion. Some rights were to be given up for the more effectual protection of others. It must then have been foreseen by the framers of that sacrod instrument, that from the exteut of our country, and her diversified interest, almost e* vory law passod by Congress, would bo une qual in its operation upon the interest of vari ous sections. But if ono single Stnto has the puwer of nullifying at its will nud pleasure, tho acts of twoniy-foiir, the legislation of Congress wuuid be vain aud useloss; for there is scarce u single law, which would not bo nullified in sumo ono of tho Statos. JBut such a doctrine, if adopted, would lead directly to a disunion of tho Stales; my mind, involves the very worst of political .evils. The pure aud exalted patriotism of South Carolina, and her noble suciifices and sufferings in favor of the Union, forbid the idea that such can be the wish or intention of that magnanimous State. But such would inevitably ho its effects. To me, the Union of the States is sacred; and I am proud to believe, the same devotion is deeply laid in tho Items of those I have had the honor to represent; and no act calculated to under mine or destroy that beautiful fabric,-should receive from us, any thing but our displeasure. Every patriotic heart must respond to the sen- timeutof our Chief Magistrate: "The'Union ‘ tl must be preserved." That tho Tariff will be modified, and made more acceptable to us, in a few years, and pet haps at the very next Con gress, I have no doubt. Every day’s experi ence, and every moment's reflection, convin ces my mind of that fact. Let us then appeal temperately, but with firmness, to the patriot ism and justice of the nation, rather thaa rash ly “fly to ills we know not of.” Mr. Rancher isa Candidate for re-election.
