Middletown, June ,10,1069. lo Hftif past 11, passing BrQQk\vay*8 Fe^ ry. Beifiu to talk of catching eharka. S p. M. Arrived at tlie anciont city of Saybrook. This city ia ao ancient that there is nothing left of it at a city, but the locality and the terrible looking fort^ whoae ancient battlements ire litei^ ally bristling with soiue six or seven mul* lien stalks, whidi are probably intended tiir^ to pntect the commeroe of the which consists principally of clanis, lobsters &c., There was onco quite business dono in sjHiculating in Orthodox p indples, the ancient cxcliange, where wares of this description chaugW bonds, was called the Saybrook Platform. But alas two centuries have pasiied, and Old iaybrook with its fleets, its fortresses, o^ th^ox principles, audits brave defenders, whose stout hearts and willing hands were a terror to british foes without, and Tory enemies within, have also passed out of our sight, but not to be for gottoD. The memory uf their brave ex-ploits^ and noble daring in feats of grand and lof^ tumbling, aixi recorded on liv ing tablets, in the hearts of all true native AsHerieeMs. We did not see the Platform, but was informed by a half breed, that at present it was used for dressing fish! only to think that the ancient forum, the placc where the merchant princes, magnates, and Di-vines of Saybrook, u s ^ most to congpre-gate to discuss religion, politics, and law, should be used for such scaly purposes. Thus we see to what base purposes we may come at last. One could but think while passi^ the scene of that celebrated land and naval engagement, of the time when those hills and waters reedioed to the war of thun< cannon, the rattie of musketry, the g fife, and sxnrit stirring drum, the inhabitants of this primitive and peaceful burgh were appalled by tlie sight of burning ships, and warlike ions defiling through tlieir streets with the pomp and circumstance of glorious war, while the gallant chai^ of the val-lieut fourteen, with swords, AASC pistols, pitch-forks,' &c., who never gave the foe rest until the last sail faded in the dis-tant horizon, soars loftily in our imagina-tion. It is unnecessary to enter into a le!igtby recapitulation ut this dead fight; we will simply add that the loss was on the side of the Brstish, who had several men killed and wounded, nil of the Amer-cans that were wounded in the fray, were hit beneath Ae ornamental buttons of their coat-tails. Thus Providence favor ed our arms and the country was saved, not however without the loss of some val-uable private property, in the form of spirituous liquors. At this place, we had an acquisititon to our party in the person of E. CL Beman, and to the stack of provisions by suudiy generous hams, and a very suspicious looking package in yellow paper, on which was marked ia characters of blood, Schnapps." I would briefly intimate, that the aforesaid packa^, was secreted by the proprietor. Its efiects will be dmly c^nicled. Half past 2, under way, with a light breeze, Wnd out. 3 o'lock, over the bar with Long Island Sound like a beautiful panorama spread out before us. Several blue fish lines overboard, and as usual one man had all the bites. -Julius Smith Avas the l u c^ man ; we could not possibly account for this, until it was discovered that Charles Clark had seated himself in the yawl, and had occasionally found Smith with a bite. 6 o'clock off Bartlett's Beef light boat, bound for New London Harbor. Meeting at the supper table, consequent upon the tea kettle being dry, it was summarily checked however, (not the tea-kettle, but themeeti^,) by the steward Mr. Abbey, who exhibited great presence of mind, pleasantly telling a wicked passenger who said he would take another cup of tea, that ke didn^ heUat U,—reason why, it had, all leaked out of the noaade. Half past 9 ^dock. at anchor off New London light, have rnn about 30 miles to4ay all hands turned in. Aug. 10th, 6 o'clock a.m.—aU hands up betimes. Another wicked passenger su^ gested the propriety of taking an eye opener, and breakfast preparer, in tlie form of a gii^sling; motion lost, all hands on " V the bay. First blue-iish caught morning from the ice room of a fishing smack, bait, a silver hook. They were duly served up by the Stew-ard in his most approved style, to the tire satisfaction of all, especially those of the first table, who came on deck strok-ing their diaj^rums, and emitting cer-sam spasmodic grunts, which naturfdly leads reflecting minds to suspect a cer-tain fullness of tlio stomach coused by eating freely vf an excellent meal. Those who were so unfortunate as to be detailed tor the second table, showed no signs iisappointment or jealousy, on tlto con-trary they evinced a lively interest by ranging themselves on either side tif tlie cabin, sticking tlieir noses through the bars, regaling their olfactory organs with the fateful aramo of fresli blue>flsh,) ota-toes, and coflfec, calmly awaiting the hour when the dulcet voice of the steward should summon them to the table. 8 oV.lock, while waiting for the fog to clear up, we wero much anmt^l by what we at first supposed to be a hound, sitting his morning hymn, or perform-ing some other devotional rite peculit r to his species, we> concludcd according to Plcto that it ht 99, and resolved to wait, until time and circumstances should solve the fearful mystery. As the fog cleared up, we discovered that a suspicious looking craft, clipper built, painted black, with tall raking mas^ had, sometime during the night, favor^ by the darkness and our soporific state, succeeded in approaching within half a mile of us and cast anchor. Soon after this we heard the reportof acaimon, and immediately a wreath of smoke arose from her starboard bow. There was much speculation in regard to the character of the unknown, when another report was heard, and another wail from the hound. The excitement was intense, there stood men in whose vocabulaiy the word •fear' was not to be found, sUent they stood, with majestic mein, their arms folded across tlieir stomachs, (they had just aris-en from the table,) ca^ly awaiting their fate. At this important crisis, five brave men stood forth and offered themselves as a forlorn hope, resolute in their determina-ation to board tliis invador of our rights and learn his character, wehther pirate^ filibuster or slaver, tod thus relieve us of our anxiety. The captain's yawl was forthwith lannched, and' the famous five entered her without arms or equipments of any kind save a pocket pistol, the own-er of said pistol after reflecting on the character of the expedition, and also on the effect of a pistol shot, on the human system allowed his unparalelled magna-nimity to get the better of his resolution and he was heard io say by some, that sooner than dinct the muzzle of tliis in-strument to the bosom of his fellow man, he would discbarge the contents down his own throa^ which he accordingly did without exhibitioig the slightest symptoms of internal disorganization. As the boat approached the craft, this living wall of Anglo Saxon valor, neither wavered nor blanched; their course was onward. They rowed under the stem, and then and there, read the name of W. W. Johnson. They boarded her, and were recieved by a gentleman who infor-med him that she was a pleasure yacht, hailing from Stamford Conn,, bound for Newport, Retchum Master, ten men all told. The gentlemen who was no other than the Captain himself, was very assid-uous in his attentions, showed them aU over the vessel, (with the exception of the medidne chest,) and gave them aU the information they required, and at par-ting politely requested them to call again. We shall recoHect Capt Betchum. The party next proceeded to the Light House, and in company with the keeper ascended to the top, where the principal of lighting was explained to them, and they then descended. They offered the keeper some filthy lucre as compensation for his trouble, which he refused in tiM, saying that he never took anything from saUors like us, but when rich gentlemeu came on pleasure excursions, he took all they w(are disppsed to give him. The statesman's usually calm temper, seemeil somewhat ruffled, though he no doubt in-wardly rejoiced at not being called upon - for his contribution. It was quite evi-dent to mo however that i^pearauci;} were not in our favor. We next made some inquiries as to the character of the strange noises wu had heard, and the grert mptery was solved, by our guidos informing us that they proceeded from the fog horn which ^ he was blowing, for a propeller that wa.s - deck, snuffing we fo^ which envelop^ enveloped in a fog. I hsh this The forlorn hope returned to the vessel, and ccnnmunicatra these important factt* to the crftw, and coraplet^ assuagetl their fears, by telling them, that the sounds were not warlike in their na-ture, and in no way concerned tite safety of this GkriMa Union, Cuba, or the At-rican Slave trade. In a few moments nearly all the crew had assumed the horiiontal, wtth their heels on the hdl, solacing themselves bv long and fervant pulls at their famous Pi-- ter Dorni pipes. At tt A. X. another par^ went adion? and indulged in sundry aquatic s j ^ is whidi were witnessed by a smaU but highly intelligent audience. At 10 oVdo^ a par^ of ua went «8hort< on the Qroton side, and bought twenty pounds of lobsters for suf^ier, we enquire^l of a small siicd boy where we could get some long clama for bait, the only ansAvvr that he voudisafed us was, he knew where we could ^ a plontv of lubbers. Wv endeavored to exj^istulate with the youth but to no purpose, one of the party even went so far as to administer a somewhat lengthy dose of advice, wound up his briUiant peroration, by holding up to his minds eye certahi of the illustrious dead, as shinuigexampUNA of what he might at-tain, should he prave so wise as to eii)> brace his theoiy of moral reform. The characters named, were Messrs John Hcc-nan. Custom House officer, Dick Turpin, Horace Greeley, Geasar Borgia, Sylvam;s Cobl>, and James Buchanan. He also ex-hibit^ to the naughty boy's visual or-gans an astoui^ding feat of manual and facial legerdemain, which consists, of ap-plying your thumb to the side of your nose, and causing the finger to move ra})- ly back and forth. Mr. : ofRired no explanatbn to this novel demon-stratioi^ and as I am naturally n^est ard retiring in my disposition, I foroore asking him any questions, prefering to wait until 1 could obtaia a private inter-view. We entered tiie yawl deeply grieved and mortified,, grieved at the degeneracy of the age, and at the evident tcnden<;y of young men to vicious courses, and morti-fied to think that he who had thus wan-tonly insulted us, was too small for us to notice. An injury a lian may forgive, but an insult never. The latter if pocke t-ed degrades a man in his own estimation, and if r esented, in the estimation of the community. Tlius we moralized. 11 o'clo^ I hurrah ! thefi^ has entire-ly disappeared, and we are^mderweigh .standing out of the harbor. Wind light from the S. E. 124 o'clock pass Gull Island and head for Gardiner Bay. 2i o'clock pass the light on the point, and at 3 o'clo^ at an-chor in the bay. All hands fishing at Porgie Bock. I^st porgie caught by Col. Wm'. Dick-inson. A variety of fish unbagged, inclu-ding sea-bass, blackfish, cunnow and sand sharks. An important discoveiy was made, viz: that sand shark was a 8nper:or bsdt poKgies. At 7 o'clock returned to the vessel, and regaled ourselves with a supper prepared by our steward, who by the way is the prince of cooks. Concert in the evening in the forward cabin. Old Dan Sawje.^, a piece con^os-ed e^ressfy for the occasion, by the force of circumstances, was executed a'la Brig-noli, (this is supposed to ^French,) elic-ited tremenduous applause, especially the first line of the 1st and 2nd, vOrses, " Where now is aid Duk Sawyer, and by-and- by we go and lick him.'* After giv-ing quite an extensive programme, and singing several pieces not mentioned in the bills, the performance ended
