A .brilliant naval affair occurred at Pen- sacola on the night of the 16th.

It was resolved by theofficeraof ihe Colorado to frustrate their designs. S o on the night of the 16th (if I mistake not) a n expedition left the ship just after the moon set, in four boats, for this purpose. Tho party numbered 96 men, all told, consisting of Lieut Bussell, who commaridoU the company, Lieuts. Sproston and\\ Blake, Midshipman Steere, Capt Reyuoldi,, of the marines, and the remaining party of sailors. The brjg lay in tbe slip at the side of the Nlvy Tard, where were quartered some four thousand Boldiers, and on the wharf just adjoining the vessel was a 10-inch gun which commanded that part of the harbor. The party proceeded with muffled oars 'with great caution, and were near the vessel before they were discovered. On being dis- covered, they were fired upon by the rebels on the vessel. A man in tbe \top\ of the privateer, who waa doing the most damage to our men, was discovered by Engineer White, when he seized tbe rifle and shottho man, he falling from the top to deck a corpse. The boats' crews, under lieutenants Bussell and Blake, and Midshipman Steele, boarded the vessel and engaged in a hand to hand encounter with the pirates. In tho meantime Midshipman Steere and Assistant Engineer 'White with a party of men were in the eab- in and hold of the vessel engaged with cot- ton, tow and spirits turpentine in Bring the vessel. This being effectively accomplished, Lieut Russell gave the' order \every one to the hoatt,\ and the privateersman was left-a - sheet oftflames. • • x ' While this, was going on Lieut Sproston landed on the wharf, shooting tho v sentry. who had his piece leveled on htm (Lieut Sif and effectually spiked the ten-inch gun, that it might not be need against them ea thoy retired, bringing the tompion away as a trophy.

Whence wise man of old, sitting upon tho rival claims of two mothers to a child,' 'decreed tbnt tho child should be cut in' twain, and one portion given to each, it was : the false mother who exulted at the judgment, while the true mother turned away horror-atruck', preferrine to leave her offspring in the hands of an enemy rather than have it destroyed.
