Capture of a Slaver. --Letters from Zanzibar, received at Salem, Mass., state that the ship Sunny South, with 846 slaves on board, had been captured by her Britannic Majesty's ship Brisk, in the vicinity of Mozambique, and sent to Mauritius. The Sunny South was built in New York in 1854, by the late George Steers, and was 702 tons burthen. She was cleared at the Custom-House in New York, on the 5th of August.

Still another slaver caught. --In addition to the Cora and the Bonita recently captured, we learn that letters received at Salem, Mass., from Zanzibar, announce the capture of the Sunny South, with 846 negroes on board. The vessel was taken near Mozambique by the British steamer Brisk, and sent to Mauritius. The slaver was 762 tons burden, and cleared from this city for Havana, where she was purchased by a Spaniard and fitted for the "black bird line." For some months our navy on the coast of Africa would appear to have exerted itself very creditably and successfully in putting down that infamous traffic. It is said that the business has already declined, owing to the great risk run in escaping from the steamers, which are able to make themselves seen and felt everywhere with the best effect. The schooners of light draught and rapid sailing qualities can no longer hoist sail and make their escape, as hither to, but find themselves brought up on quick notice.--New York Adverti
