* This return is correct as far as <we hai)e publijhed it.
Departed this life on Sunday the 12 th
ins!, at IVarrentcn , in the 30 th year of her
age. Mrs. Amelia Cotton. ...By those
acquainted with the social domestic virtues
of this lady , her loss will be severely felt.
An attem/it at eulogy would be of no avail.
She was an affectionate wife, a tender mo
ther and a sincere friend. She has left a
distressed husband and two small chil
dren, with a large circle of friends to la*
ment her loss —
Yet blest thought,
She is not lost, but gone before.
Savannah , October 11.
Since the Hurricane of 1804, we have
experienced no such gale as that of
Wednesday last. On Tuesday we had
a pretty fresh breeze all the day, from
about N. to N. E. It increased to
wards evening, and continued to blow
with considerable violence on Wednes
day morning, which raised the tide to
more than its common height. There
being a considerable fresh in the river,
the planters on the different islands be
gan to be alarmed, and they had but
too good reason, for the gale increasing
all that day, brought in such a tide in
the evening, as to alarm the wharf own
ers and those who had property stored
under the bluff. Luckily however, it
did not rise so high as to do much in
jury to them, hut the Planters have suf
fered most severely. The tide meeting
the fresh, it raised the water over eve
ry bank on Hutchinson’s Island, and
the Rice stacks which had been so well
and so safely gathered, were generally
surrounded with from three to four feet
water. Farther up the river the fresh
was more severely felt, and those who
had made large, high and substantial
banks, to secure their barn yards, had
the misfortune to see them either brok
en by the violence of the current and
wind, or filled from leaks and rain wa
ter. In consequence of which, every
crop that was not previously removed to
the high land, or placed on knolls, has
been much injured. Except a boat of
Mr-, white’s having upset, and four Ne
groes perishing, wc have heard of na
other lives lost. The loss of Rice,
however, will be immense ; although it
has not been generally carried away, it
is all soaked in water, and the tides still
keeping up, will prevent the Planters
from saving what otherwise might have
been preserved. It is impossible for us
to estimate the extent of the loss ; one
gentleman however, assures us that he
had reaped what would have produced
him 800 barrels Rice, which is now
damaged with water, and from which,
with every exertion and good weather,
he does not expect to save the value of
The Cotton Crops must also have
suffered as well as the other Plantations
in the reach of tide water—we have no
accounts but from the immediate vicin
ity of this place. The general sufferers

A Poston paper of September 18,
says—“ His excellency the Tunisian
Ambassador, with his suite, sailed yes
terday for Tunis, in the ship Two-Broth
ers, chartered by government, for the
purpose of taking his excellency home.”
It is stated in a late Paris paper, that
the Emperor has granted permission to
export grain from France to England.
The successor of Yrujo is said to be
already arrived in the United States.—
Yrojo has been engaged in the construc
tion of machinery for mills for grinding
of grain in Spain ; the mills are to be
wrought by steam—the steam engines
are made or to be made in England, and
the mill work here ; the work is carry
ing on near Schuylkill, not far from the
bason of the city aqueducts—and ap
pears to be not nearly finished-

“ Captain Whitby, of the Leander,
was sometime since superceded in the
command of that ship by captain Hum
phrey, from England. The Leander sails
for England between this date and the
24th inst. Capt. W. goes passenger
in her, and a strict enquiry is to be made
into the unfortunate occurrence off
New-York. He is permitted to take
home such officers as he may think ne
cessary to bring forward in his defence.
“ In his majesty’s instructions to flag
officers, captains, See. &c. dated on the
29th of May last, I find the following
“ Representations having been made,
that neutral ships are frequently detain
ed upon frivolous grounds, you are here
by further required and directed not to
interrupt any ships under neutral flags
engaged in trade not prohibited by law,
except upon proof, or strong ground of
presumption, that the ship or the goods
belong to his majesty’s enemies ; and
you are particularly to bear in mind,
that neutral vessels, conveying cargoes
between this country [England] and the
ports of the enemy, carry with them a
strong presumption, that the propertyis
either On British or neutral account, and
engaged in a legal trade : his majesty
having, in consideration of the present
state of commerce, been pleased to al
low that trade, to be carried on by Bri
tish and neutral subjects—it is therefore
proper that such trade should suffer as
little interruption as possible.

“ The above instructions from the
lords of the admiralty, were received
on this station by his majesty’s ship
Leopard, and I have further understood,
it is the wish of the admiral here : that
no neutral vessels should be detained on
light or frivolous grounds.”

A letter from Naples, of the l?th Ju
ly, inserted in one of our last French pa
pers, contains the following account.
“ On the Ist July, 6000 English dis
embarked at the gulph of St. Euphemia,
in Calabria. They .were attacked on
the 4th by the general of division Reg
nier, with the Polish regiment and 42d
of the iihe, who were warmly repulsed.
General Compere, grievously woiinded,
and 300 Poles were made prisoliets.
The English having been joined by a
reinforcement of 300 men, and by 3 or
4000 Calabrian insurgents, cbmmitted
the error of advancing into the country,
and quitted the protection of their ves
sels. Within a league of Cosenxa they
were furiously attacked, by the general
ofdivision Nerdier, at the head of 10,000
infantry and 2000 cavalry* The En
glish were beaten, put to the route, and
at the moment of writing 1800 English
prisoners arrived at head-quartets.
General Verdicr is in pursuit of the fu
gitives. On the other hand general
Regnier having marched to Cotrone has
given up to pillage the village de Lisso
la. Five hundred Calabrian revolters
have been put to the sword*

A gentleman who arrived here yester
day from Leghorn in the ship Connecti
cut, capti Story, has favoured the editors
of this Gazette with a file of Italian pa
pers to Uie'Sdth July, from which the
following is translated.
“A letter from Naples of the 29th ,
July, contains the following official note
of the surrender of Gaeta.
“ Yesterday the 18th, at 6 p. M. the
fortress of Gaeta surrendered to the
French. As soon as the great breach
■ was formed in the citadel, at the foot of
the counter-scarp, which in extent was
sufficient to cantain 16 men in front, 1
three columns of French troops were
ready to ascend it; and the grenadiers 1
which composed the first, waited with
glorious impatience the signal of as
“ The Marshal Massena demanded
the surrender for the last time. The
besieged asked for several hours delay,
in order to obtain the permission of the
Prince Phillipstadt (who it appears by
another paper had been wounded, and
repaired on board a British vessel); but
they were answered, that in an hour, the
place would be taken by force of arms.
The appearance of the columns ready to
march at a moment’s warning, a breach
already made and easy to be mounted, .
and the security ol being treated agree- '
ably to the laws of war, were the potent J
reasons which induced the garrison to ,
“ The garrison are prisoners of war,
with permission to march off’, but not to
serve in 18 months. The artillery and
magazines were delivered to the French
in the state in which they were found.
The other articles are as yet unknown.

The following curious circumstance occur
cd on Tuesday last , at Aft'. George Py
re’s shipuard, Kensington.
On heaving down the ship Pennsylva
nia Packet, lately from Canton, in c ider
to discover a small leak, which she find
experienced on her passage home, it
was frund that she bad been struck
about 6 feet below the bends by a sword
fish, which hud driven its tusk or sword
through the copper sheathing and bot
tom plank, to the ceilifig inside; and
being unable to draw it out again, had
left it remaining in the bottom, and
broken short off outside. The force with
which it was driven in, was so great as
to splinter the plank and cause the leak.
Had the sword been withdrawn, *tis pro
bable the ship would have made more
Water than could have been lifted by the
pumps. Part of the swords was cut off
in extracting it, the remainder mea
