--At a late hour last Friday night, as watchman Ferguson and his partner were passing along the dock, they saw a man bolt from an oyster boat, as if just fired from a twenty-four pounder, pursued by one of the sailors, who fired a pistol at him as he ran, but without effect.
The fugitive was probably about to help himself to the effects around, when he was discovered.
