A Sanguinary Carpenter.

--From a very authentic source, (says the New Orleans Delta,) we have received the following racy document, which is a copy of one found enclose in a Adolphe Wolfe's Schiedam Schnappes battle taken up by a fisherman on Grand Island, some few days ago. It proves conclusively one or two the right — either that the writer was aborting under a hallucination as regarded the 11th vol. ownership of Fort Livingston, or the one had just emptied the bottle to which he included his ‘"feast of reason and flow of soul."’ We are rather inclined to favor the ‘"Juniper"’ theory:

"U. S. Ship South! Carolina,

Off Fort Livingston, Nov. 26, 1861.

"This ship he share for the purpose of protecting United States property. Fort Livingston belongs to us, and you d — d traitors know it. Have it we will, if it costs every drop of loyal blood in America.

"Villains, beware!! test your millennium be in hell. Robert Wisner,

Carpenter U. S., U S. Carolina.

‘"P. S.--Beware of the 'Flying Dutchman,' Alias the 'Hen Roost, Robber.' R. W."’
