The Nixon, wishing to avail herself of the fair wind, left Pascagoula Bay last Friday mors, she discovered a large Federal steamer ahead, attempting to cut her off. The Nixon tacked, and stood in again for the Pass, and reached the bar about a mile ahead of the Federalist.

She has not been seen in that quarter since. --New Orleans Delta, A
