--A suspicious bark has been seen off our coast for several days.
She captured on Sunday, twenty miles north of this point, the corn schooner Mary A. Pender, which was returning home from Charleston with seventy-five casks of lime for Fort Macon.
The crew escaped in boat and arrived here on yesterday.
Two pilots were decoyed on board of the bark.
