Our files of late English papers, are largely occupied with the deiqils ofa nar­ rative which has no parallel fdr Suffering and horror, even in the annals of ship­ wreck. The facts transpired at a police investigation in London. It seems that in 1835, the ship Stirling Castie, Captain Frazer, was wrecked oh a cotal reef on a passage lrom Sydney to Singapore The Captain’s wife, Mrs. Eliza Ann Frazer, together with 18 men and two boys, comprised the soirls on boa-d. Two oftiie men, who we're at the wheel at the lime the ship' struck, uere instant­ ly killed, and the cabins were dashed in­ to the hold, together with all file biead, pork, and .ther provisions. But, the following harrowing narrative,- taken down hi fore the Lord Mayor of London, m ihe language of Mrs. Frazdr bfcfselfl while it cannot but excite a shudder in every philanthropic mind,- will he wit> interest and sympathy. We ina'y add ihat the statement of Mrs. F. was fully corroborated, and even with addi­ tional horrors, by John Baxter; the sec­ ond mate, at the close of whose evidence, the Lord Mayor said,— “ Seveial humane persons wh'osfc hearts were touched with the account Of Mrs. Frazer’s suffrtngs, havo sent tome contributions for her benefit. I knetf that such would be the case, for anything so fearful 1 never heard since I was burn.’’ Mrs. Fiazd- deposed that the crew, when the tempest ceased, contrived to cut away the masts, in the expectation that the ship would right herself, and shfi did in some degree change her posi­ tion, but not to any serviceable extent; they therefore determined to get away as well as they could in the ioog-boat and pinnace, which they had contrived to keep secure, the two other boats which were attached to the ship having been swept away by the fury of the elements. They knew they were to lhe northward ofMoreton Bay, a portion of the settle­ ments of the British Crown, and they de­ termined to make for that place with as much expedition as possible. Accor­ dingly, having worked with the most des­ perate industry until four o’clock on Sun­ day, they quitted the vessel and took to the boats. The ship’s carpenter, the cook, ihe cook’s mate, John Frazer, the Laptain’s nephew, the Boatswain, Ed­ ward Stone, arid Bill Lorton, a seaman, took to the pinnace ; while the captain, his wife-, chief mate, the second mate, the two boys, and the rest of the crew, took to the long boats Four days after they committed themselves to tbe care of Providence, Mrs. Frazer was de­ livered of a child, while up to her wain in water, in the long: boat. The infant was born alive, but alter a few gasps was drowned ! and the chief mate wrapped up the body in a part of his shirt which he tore from his back for the purpose, and let it go along with the tide. The poor mother could not account for the extraordinary vigour with which she was able to bear up against this calamity, ad­ ded to the other calamities to which she was doomed to be exposed; Fortunately she was for some time in a state of in­ sensibility, and Was not until a consider­ able time after the child was consigned to the deep, aware that it was brought into the world from which it was so rapidly hurried away. For a great many days j they endeavoured in Vain to reach Moreton . Bay, being all the time without any food i except a small quantity of the lees ofj hops, which they had found in a cask. They suffered dreadfully from thirst as well as hunger while in this awful situa. tion; At last they reached a large rockj to Which they fastened their boats, and they went in quest of oysters and water ; but their disappointments were multiplied upon them, and they streched themselves along the rock, in expectation of a spee^ dy release from tbeir sufferings by the interposition fofanether tempest: In the morning those who belonged to the long­ boat were astonished find Ujat tfig pin­ nace and the men tvho had deeiipibd hef, had altogether disappeared.* These un­ fortunate fellows were neverr heard o f more, and their comrades in calariflty could not conjecture what their motive could befor making an experimentby them­ selves, without the aid of the experience of the' Captain and mates whom they left behind. Th*- captain’s 'dm was, all along, after they had been obliged to quit the ship, to reaeh Moreton Bay, but finding that wind aqd current were so dead against his object, and his companions being reduced to the extremity of lying on their backs in the boat, with their tongues out to catch the damp of the dews that fell, he resolved to make for tbe nearest land! It was a choice of awful evils, for he knew that tbe shore which it was proba­ ble they wo ild reach was visited by tribes of savages. They bore away before the wind prepared to meet death in whatever shape' it might present itself, and so ex­ hausted with suffering as to be careless whether they were to die by the hfinds of the natives or to be overwhelmed by the waves. At last they came in sight of land and soon afterwards their boat ran into and landed in a plafce Cffiled Wide Bay; Thdy vVere now about lOp miles to the north of Moreton Bay, which is the prificipal penal settlement to whieh the incorrigible honvicts wefre sent to pass the remainder of their days in uninter­ rupted labdr ; and just as they touched the land they caught sigh of vast crowds of naked savages, who soon approached the beach, evidently delighted with the priZe that presented itself- The savages surrounded the boat, and, raising it up, carried it from the beach to the bush; ivith Its cretV, just as they were. The moment they laid the boat on the ground they began to strip the men' of their clothes, commencing with the captain and Chief officers. John Baitef-, the gfecond mate, bndeaVtfured £o hide st shiH orna- iheiit iri which his atint’s balr wds con­ tained; baVing wittingly yielded up' every thing else ; hut the savages became in­ furiated at the attempt at concealment and beat him dreadfully. It is unnecessary to say that tbe trinket was torn frorr. him. They broke in pieces the watches and chronometers, and each took a portion of the machinery to stick in their noses and ears, and after they had divided a- mong themselves the various portions of apparel of which they stripped their cap­ tives, they threw to them, the heads and en­ trails of the fish upon which tbey had been lately making their meal. The savages after havtng detained them two days, took them further up into the bush, and drove them onward, that they might US they soon ascertained, fall into the hands of other tribes, by whom an ingenious variety was to b'e given to their sufferings. The captain had endeavoured to prevail upon thenff to' accept the services of the poor crevV for ai longer time, being appre­ hensive that any change a’mpng the na­ tives would: be for the whrge ; but they beat all the now naked whites On before them until fiesh fribes ca'me up and took each of them a prisoner, and set him to work m carrying pieces of trees gnd foil­ in'* in other ejfha'ustiog wavs. Mrs.- Fr-izer, being the only womar, wa.-t not selected by any nf the tribes, but wa* left by h 6 rself, while they all went omv.ird ; but her husband got an oppor­ tunity fo mention to her not to stir from the plaice in which she was at the mo­ ment, ancf that he would contrive to see her in a few ho'urs.* During that night she lay in the’ clefts ofa rock, and in the morning, after looking about without see­ ing.a creature' she determined to follow some foot-marks, and after having pro­ ceeded to some distance, she saw a crowd ot black women' approach. I’hese, how­ ever. belonged to the tribe of saVages by whonri her husband had been taken up in the bush o'ri the preceding day ; and they Set her to whrk in Cutting wood and light­ ing fires. Being quite naked, and pre­ senting a contrast in her skin which the women did not like, she was compelled by them to rub hers'elf sdl over With gum and herba, Which had the effect of ma­ king her nearly as dark as themselves. They likewise tattooed her all over,- and having pulled her hair out, covered her head with a sort of gum, and stuck the feathers of parrots and other birds all over it. One of the women having two children, obliged her to nurse one of them, notwithstanding the severe labor she had to perform, and, if the child was out of temper, the nurse was kicked, ancl scratched, and thumped for its peevish­ ness. At the expiration of four days Mrs. Frazer saw her bfisband for the first time since their separation. He was dragging along a tree, and was gfeat- ly fatigued. She had just began to en­ quire how it happened that he did not manage to let her know where he was, and he replied that he dared not to look for her, when his tribe suddenly appeared, one of them having seen them together jnade a push at the Captain with a spear,& pierced him right through the body, and he fell dead in an instant. Mrs. Frazer ran to her huLband, and cried out— “ J e ­ sus of Nazareth, I can endure this no longer,” and pulled the spear OUt of hlS body, but bis breath was gone forever. She then fell senseless and remained so, for a considerable time, and when she recovered her senses she found herself a- long with the tribe, which she was obli­ ged to serve, but what became of the body of captain Frazer she never could learn, and of course the barbarous region in which she was enslaved was no place for sympathy. Shortly after this catas­ trophe the first officer of the ship having been informed that the captain had been murdered by one of the tribes, formed, in a fit of desperation, a plan of revenge, fettered and exhausted with labor as he was. This intention was, hovverer, dis­ covered, and horrible was bis punish­ ment. Mrs. Frazer had just lighted a fire by order of her tribe, and the unfortu­ nate man’s leg wasthurst iqto it and con­ sumed, while he, by tbe violence of his contortions, actually worked for the rest of his body a grave in the sand in which be was embedded. Two days after this horrible event a fine looking young man, named James Major, was disposed of. Captain Frazer, who knew a good deal of the character and habits of the savages on this coast/ had mentioned to Major that the sava­ ges Wcrtfld take off his head for a figure bust for one of their canons. It seemed, too, that it was usual for the savage who contemplated that sort of execution to smile in the' fate of his victim* TOim^d?: ately heford he struck him tf 0 e earth. While Major was at work, the chief of hia tribe approached him smiling, osd tapped h’rm on the shoulder.' At that in; slant thp poor fellow received at blow on the back of the neck from a waddle, or crooked stick, which stunned him. He fell to-the ground, and a couple or sava- ges set to work, and by means of shar­ pened shells severed the head from the body with frightful exclamations. They then ate parts of the body, and preserved the head with certain guids o'f extraordi­ nary efficacy, arid affixed ii as a figure bust to one of their canoes: The rest of •the crew, of course expected nothing less thdri death. Their apprehension appeared to relate rather io the mode of inflicting the extreme penalty, than to the fact that they must prematurely die. Two of the searnan, named Doyle ard Big Ben, contrived to steal a canoe, and endeavoured to cross an island, but were drowned in the attempt to escape from, perhaps a more fearful death. * There was a black man, named Jo ­ seph, who had been steward bn board the Stirling C a s t l e . — When the sav a g e s seized the long-boat in which the crew had entered White Bay, they stripped this Joseph as well as the rest, but as he was of their own color they inflicted no punishment upon him, and he had the privilege of going about which was de­ nied to any others of the wreiched stran­ gers. This man, Who was continually watching an opportuniiy to escape, had assured Mrs. FraZer that if he could get away, the first life he should think of saving would be that of his mistress. He succeeded in stealing a\ canoe, in which he rowed off, and in six weeks he reached Moreton Bay, where he inform­ ed the commandant ofthe penal settle­ ment of the horrible trircumstarices which had taken place at White Bay, and of the servitude in ivhich the survi­ vors of the crew were detained. By this time Mrs. Frazer was separa­ ted and at a considerable distance from the different members of the crew,- and she had given up all hopes of ever being liberated from the frightful bondage in which she was detained. The Moreton Bay commandant, immediately upon hearing this inquired in the barracks whether Any ofthe military would volun­ teer to save a lady and several of the crew of the wrecked vessel from the sava­ ges in the bush, and a number offered their services at a moment’s notice. By a sy s t e m o f nisxndeuVer ing en t e r e d into by a fconvict w h o had been for sotne y e a r s in the brish amongst the savag’es, the ob­ ject was effected. All the survivors wfere, to the best of Mrs. Frazer’s belief; rescued from thri savages. Atth’efcamp the commandant and the commissary, and in fact all the individuals who were in the servicfe of the Governirient, treated M rs. F r a z e r ahd her co m p a n i o n s irr m i s ­ fortune With a degree of Kindness which it is evident the former has a very warm recollection of. She w a s placed under m e d i c a l c a r e i m m e d i a t e l y , a n d e v e r y thing that was co n s i d e r e d likely to a b a t e the sen s e , of what she had undergone in witnessing the murder o f her husband, and the oilier horrors with which she was surrounded, was done. The Captain of the Mediterranean packet, in which Mrs. Frazer arrived from Sydney at Liverpool, stated that be was at Sydney at the time of the arrival of that lady, and that the circumstances detailed, caused the greatest excitement thpre.- The convict to whose extraor­ dinary exertions Mrs. Fiazer owed her escape received a free pardon from the Government there, and a reward of 30 guineas. The Lord Mayor asked what was the circumstances o( Mrs. Frazer ? He was convinced that, if she were in necessity, the ladies in London, who were constantly looking for such objects, would speedily relieve her. The Cap­ tain said lhat the unfortunate lady was not mistrCSs of a farthing ; the clothes on 1 her back had been given to her by the J commandant^ wife ; arid Captain Frazer i had bCen the sole sirpport of her and three children,' who vVere in the Orkney Is l­ ands, to which she was anxious to go as soon as possible. She was lame, had almost jost the use of one arm, and the sight of one eye, by the severity of the inflictions to ivhich she had been subject­ ed. The Lord Mayor— “ lsh a li most willingly receive contributions for her benefit, and I am sure the call wili soon be answered. I never heard ofany thing so truly dreadful in all my experience.” At a lath celebration of old bach­ elors af Bloomington, Indiana, tbe fol­ lowing’ villainous toast was drunk : ‘The Fair ! —Saints in the churches— angels in the ball roorfr— aod devils in the kite hen'.

P L A IN T R U T H I In 1829. Andrew J a' ki«oi. assumed the' duties of President of the UmHsti States. He was a popular President. For eight years his voice was omnipotent in the land. He had the power to do good or evil; The choice rested with himself and his friends; H o w has his adiffinisiration affected ttte cou n t r y ! When he came Into power, he found iis enjoying a currency which was unifbrfi! throughout tbe length aud breadth of the confederacy, and with which in his pocket, an individual could travel from Madawas; ea to Montrose, more readily than Vfitli gold and silver. H e found us in t b e repose o f a m o n e ­ tary calm . T h e chaos o f I S 1 6 had beert reduced to order. Al! cla s s e s o f men-’— all orders o f livings— were m o v ing alo n g at a s o b e r pace. W e were harrassed wriff no dangerous “ experim e n t s ” — c o n s e ­ quently ive were cursed \v*th no disastrous failures. - Me found us transacting our commercial pursuits with the agency of Three hundred and twenty banks; One hundred and forty-five millions! of banking capital; Sixty-one millions o f bank paper circu­ lation, T w o hundred millions o f bank loans and discounts, Labor and trade throughout their t h o u ­ sand ramifications, were highly prosper­ ous, and were fast producing for thei country unbounded wealth. Gen. Jackson retired from office itf 1,837. He left in existence Nearly seven hundred banks; Three hundred and twenty-five millions of banking capital,- O n e hundred and efghty.five millions o f bank paper circulation, Nearly six hundred millions of bank loans and discounts.' , It will thus be seen that his administra­ tion eutailed upon the country the curse Of a redundancy o f banks, o f bank capital, and o f bank loans. W h e n he laid down his power,- he left us sinking benealh the weight o f a disor­ dered currency. H e had scarcely reach­ es the shelter of retirement, ere the s'.orm burst on his devoted country. T b e ch a o s of I 8 l 6 again settled over the land. Our banks were forced into a s u s p e n s ion o f paym e n ts— o u r mercantile credit sunk prostrate— the Government itself became bankiupt. Instead o f a currency o f uniform credit all over fhe Union, we have irredeemable bank paper not current beyond the boun­ daries o f a State and individual and c o r ­ poration shin piasters, which scarcely cir­ culate rn the neighborhood which gives th e m ex i s t e n c e . Instead o f comm e r c ial prosperity, wo have a general depression and stagnation o f trade. V o t e r s o f O h io! when you go the polls in October, remember t h e s e things ; and remember that those who have succeeded - the authors o f all this unwonted confusion' and disorder, have pledged them s e lves io tread in the footsteps o f their predecessors.- 0^7“ The following article is copied from - the Virginia Times, a leading and zeal­ ous Jackson paper,— T H E M A IN E E L E C T IO N . It has been an invariable practice with certain presses — professing to be devoted to the principles uf ihe Democratic R e ­ publican party, and pretending to be anx­ ious to maintain its ascendancy— 16 mis. represent our strength in several states' where elections have been held during the last three months. Such a course, unless exposed by the true friends of Mr. Van Buren, is calculated to deceive his sup­ porters and lull tlr^m rnlo fancied sectfrity, when imminent danger of defeat is threat. euiug them. We have recently bad elec* tions in Kentucky, Indiana, Alabama, Mis­ sissippi, Rhode I-land, and Maine, wherfi the Democratic party have sustained losses fruly appaling to any sincere democrat! We know it has been asserted by a press in tbis county claiming a close affinity with democracy, that we have sustained no loss in Indiana and Kentucky. But the editor of the print knew better when he made the statement. It is true they cast their votes for Gen. Harrison in No­ vember last; but the entire Congressional delegation from Indiana were good demo­ crats, and a third of the representatives of Kentucky were of the same class* How we stand in thos-e states now, is too mel- anrboly and disheartening to reflect upon ! Rhode Island has belonged to us for tbe last three years, and i/e have carried Maine, by overwhelming majorities in every election since 1831. Now we have l o s t Rhode Island by a heavy vote against us, and Maine— if she is not gone over to the enemy— is “ shivering in thewind.” We ask the people soberly and seriously to inquire whaf is the cause of all thi*.’ Thirty or forty of the most prominent democratic Joarnal* of the United States: — in company with ourselves— have warn­ ed ceitain high characters who seek to control the affairs of the nation, that their extreme notions about the currency whuld bring the democratic party of the nation to defeat, unless they paused in their mad and urinous career. Hundreds and thou­ sands of the foremost champions of, De- mocracy.of the State of New York and elsewhere, have spoken to them h» Cne same language.
