Picked up at sea. --The Galveston News announces the arrival of the schooner William, at that port, on the 18thinst., from Mobile, and says: The Captain reports that on the 14thinst. he picked up a small boat and a man, fifty miles from land. The man was in an exhausted condition. He stated that he had deserted from the Mobile Artillery, in company with two others, who had swam ashore, leaving him to drift to sea. When picked up he had been in the boat forty-eight hours, with nothing on but a pair of pants, having used his shirt for a sail. The boat is now in possession of Capt. Cooper, who will keep charge of it until it is claimed by the owner. It is a yawl, clinker built, about 20 feet long, such as are generally used by fishing smacks. The man was sent ashore yesterday, and is now in the city. He gave several different accounts as to how he came in possession of the boat.
