The bark messenger Bird
--This famous, or rather infamous vessel, our readers may recollect, was commanded by Captain Delee
She took in a load of coffee at Rio Janeiro, bound to New York; but her Captain
preferred to take her around Cape Horn
and put into Valparaiso
, where he disposed of her cargo, and then proceeded to Tahiti.
Thence he went to New Zealand
, thence to the Philippine Islands
, where he swindled a Spanish merchant of some $20,000 in gold.
His next appearance was in the Amoor river, and from there he went to the Red Sea
, where he sold her to parties unknown.
At last she turns up at Calcutta
, where, we learn from Goddard
's circular, she bore the name of ‘"Margaret Jane
."’ The United States Consul took possession of her May 23d. The whereabouts of Captain Delee
She was under the Turkish flag, and was loaded with a full cargo bound to Singapore
, to sail the day she was seized.--Boston Troneller.
