was committed'on thfe person of "Mr. Bell, who
was stopped close'tq the store of Norton &
Wadiiams, (opposite A^Ltfw & Co*s) and rob-
>ed of his money by a man,- who held a dag

this nature. A house', in Broughton-street, was
robbed, last week, at an early hour.
The utility of dram-shops, or licenses to re
tail spirits less than a quart, is very questiona-
jle. The Corporation draw a revenue from li
censes and billiard-rooms, where liquor is sold
also, and from fines imposed on those who re
tail without leave. Increase the license and li
mit the number to one hundred, (e#. qr.) for
example; but no license for less than one quart
of spirits. In a population of two thousand five
hundred, one hundred shops ,would suffice, or
one for every twepty-five. This would by the
competition, dimmish the trade; and the reve
nue drawn from direct taxation or from sales of
goods on commission, is better than one dedu

Cleanliness and temperance, necessary every
where, are peculiarly so here. Alas! disre
garding the admonitions of our beneficent Cre
ator, how long shall hecatombs of human vic
tims be offered up an unnecessary and cruel
sacrifice. Ah! will neither precept or example
prove salutary to man. Destroy miasma or
noxious exhalations, you remove contagion—
keep the city clean, you keep it healthy—apply
quick-lime, of which there is plenty, to the
vaults, white-wash the houses and cellars, and
freely ventilate all the apartments.
Resulting from observation and experience,
these hints are very respectfully submitted to
my fellow-citizens. The means are cheap and
within every man’s power. The intention is

Extract of a letter from agentleman in JV*ew
Orleans to his friend in this city, dated
May 24, 1816.
“Our city is nearly .inundated by a crevass or
breach having been made in the Levee or em
barkment of the Mississippi by the force of the
water, which is now at its spring-flood and
flows with immense impetuosity, and being se
veral feet higher than the marginal country,
breaks down upon it in qne irresistible torrent,
which has now nearly covered the city, although
the crevass is six miles above it. New-Orleans
exhibits at this time, the novel appearance of a
sub-marine city, where the intercourse is main
tained by boats and the fertile fields and highly
cultivated gardens circumjacent to it, on the
left bank of the river, presents to view nothing
but one vast lake or unbroken sheet of water: a
line immediately on the parallel of the river of
one hundred or one hundred and fifty yards, is
the only part of the city remaining dry, and we
have reason to hope that it will not be permitted
to come any further. The surface of the land,
from the bank of the river to Lake Ponchartrain
is marked with an ample ‘declivity to carry the
water off was its transmission graxlual; but hi
therto its course has been so rapid, that it has
spread in every direction; but as the pools
swamps, crevices and low places have generally
received a level, and the river nearly at its ex
treme height, we calculate it will graduah’v dis

the present limits. We have much to Fear tliat

By the schooner Sally, captain Dominick, from Cuba,
we learn, that the schooner Phantom, of Charleston, was
fitted out at Barracoa, under Spanish colors, manned by
American and British seamen, who volunteered tneir
services to go in quest of a pirate, hovering round the
coast, who had committed considerable depredations.—
They ran her ashore and burnt her. Her crew consisted
of eleven seamen, seven of whom were taken and brought
to Barracoa in irons the day before captain Dominick
sailed. The other four had escaped among the bushes,
but were searched for and probably found.—JVew-York

LOSS OF THE SHIP HURON. '
The following is an extract of a letter from a gentleman
passenger on board the British brig Duke of W ellington,
captain Chancellor,i dated at Fernundina, (Amelia Island)
“After a very boisterous passage of six days, I have ar.
rived at this place, but with great difficulty ! assure you;
having encountered a severe gale, in which the ship Hu
ron, captain Snow, which sailed from Charleston two
days before us, for St. Mary’s, was driven on shore to

By a vessel arrived from the coast of Florida, we learn
that a severe gale of wind commenced in the gulf on
Wednesday, the 5th inst. and continued to blow with
great violence until the 8th, by which many vessels have
been wrecked. " The schooner Zanga, Russel, of this
port, was cast away at Sound Point, on the 6th; the car
go has been "saved and brought up in the Eagle. The
American schooner General Pike, Emery, master, from
Chasleston bound to Matartzas, was wrecked at the same
place,- on the same day; part of the cargo has been saved.
Mr. Preston, who was a passenger in the Zanga, arrived
here last night. "
A brig was seen on the reef to the northward of Sound
Point, which in a few minutes disappeared—A sloop also
appeared in great distress, near where the brig was seen.
A brig (name unknown) from Boston to Havana, was
driven on shore at Sturrups Key, but got off with the loss
of her deck load.
The sloop Fairy, Thrift, of this port, is on shore at
Key Tabamier, ha ving lost her mast.

from New-Orleans, in distress. During the gale many
vessels were seen scudding before it.

ty, by the above recited ordinance, passed* the 3d pf Ja
