Her Piratical Crutie Among American.
Sam Francisco, Thursday, July 20.
The whaling bark Milo has arrived in
twenty-eight days from the Arctic, with the
crews of several whalers destroyed by the
pirate Shenandoah last month.
The whalers Edward Casey, Hector, Abi
gail, Euphrates, William Thompson, Sophia
Thornton, Jireh Swift, and the Susan and
Abigail were captured and most of them
were burned. The Milo was bonded for the
purpose of taking off the crews.
The Shenandoah was continuing the
wholesale destruction of the whalers, and
would probably soon destroy another fleet
numbering sixty vessels,
Her commander was informed of Lee’s
sui render and the collaphe of the rebellion,
but did not believe it. He believed in Lin
coln’s assassination, tor he expected it.
The Shenandoah coaled last at Melbourne.
She was manned by English and Scotch
sailors. Some of the captured whalemen
joined her. ,
Tiik Confederate Cruiser Rappahan
nock. —The Navy Department has received
a despatch from Captain Walker, of the
United iStates steamer Sacramento, dated
Kingstown, Ireland, July 10, detailing his
the Beatrice, late the Rappahan
nock, while on her way from Southampton
to Liverpool. On the afternoon of the 6th
inst. he received information from Minister
Adams that the Beatrice had eailed from
Southampton for Liverpool. As soon as
steam could be got up, which, from inabil
ity to get wood for kindling the fires at
Kingstown, where she was coaling, was not
until the next morning, he started for Holy
head. He says:
As we approached Holyhead a bark-rigged
steamer was reported to me in sight, steam
ing and sailing up the coast, close to the
shore, with English colors flying. I imme
diately steered for and overtook her about
two o’clock. She was steaming with but
one engine, and making slow progress ; but
she kept so close to the coast that I could
not molest her, without violating the inter
national law of protection. * * * * *
After due consultation and a thorough obser
vation of her movements, Iflwas convinced
that I could not possibly make a legal prize
of the vessel—which, from appearances,
was the aforesaid Rappahannock—in British
waters. She was in a crippled condition,
steering for Liverpool, when I left her.
The General Episcopal Convention.— ln
view of the approaching general convention
of the Protestant Episcopal Church a* Phila
delphia iu September, Bishop Potter of New
York, has addressed a fraternal letter to
the Southern Bishops. The most important
portion of the letter is embraced in the sub
joined paragraph: *
‘“I have corresponded on the subject with
the’Bishops, and think myself authorized to
state that they sympathize with me generally
in the desire to see the fullest representation
of the churches ftom the South, and to greet
their brethren in the Episcopate with the
kindliest feeling.” ,
The New York Times of the 27th, in notic
ing this letter, says :
“If this appeal should be responded to by
the Southern Bishops, in the spirit in which
it is made, the result, politically, as well as
in a religious point of view, will be of the
greatest importance. Opposition will doubt
less be made by a minority of the conven
tion to the representation of the Southern
churches. But there is no doubt Bishop Pot
ter correctly interprets the feeling of the vast
majority of the members of This communion.
They desire to set an example of peace and
fraternaktegard. And in doing so they do
their parj both as members of the church and
citizens of the republic.”
The Situation in England. —The London
correspondent of the New York Times,
speaking of the complications surrounding
the Government party in the recent elections
in England, says:
“Then the demands of the United States
Minister are troublesome, and some go so far
as to say insolent. The demand tor the sur
render of the officers and crew of the Ala
bama, which has been so pointedly refused
by Earl Russell, has been renewed by Mr.
Adams in terms so decided, that the govern
ing & sorely perplexed. They do not
dare to comply with the demand on the eve
of the election, for a cry of “cowardice!
violation of British hospitality,” & c., would
be raised against them. On the other baud,
to refuse, may bring about what they are
most anxious to avoid. If it were only the
money, it could be postponed awhile and
then paid. If the election were over it
would bo different. The only comfort is,
the renewed friendliness with the Emperor,
the approaching union of the iron-clad fleets,
and repeated assurances that France and
England are perfectly agreed to act together
in all matters relating to America, The no
tice that the Confederate cruisers will be
taken, under whatever flag they may be
sailing, is also looked upon as a threat full
of danger. And then, what is General Dix
doing at Quebec?"
’ Internal Revenue Decision.— The Com
missioner of Internal Revenue has decided
that manufactured which a
duty has been paid according to law, may
be cut‘into smoking tobacco or fine cut chew
ing tobacco, if done in the presence or under
the supervision of an inspector, without be
coming liable to an additional duty. The
tobacco must be weighed before so cut, and
no addition to or subtraction from the same.
