On the 26th I fell in with the American schooner, William Wirt,Samuel Smith, master, of and from Boston, for Rio de Janeiro. She had a signal of distress flying; and on bearing down upon her it proved that part of the crew had mutinied on the 23d and murdered the mate with a harpoon, and that they afterwards went down to the captain's berth, and brutally cut his bowels open. The rest of the crew had retaken ^possession of the vesio 1, aiiii in so doing killed the ringleader, a Spaniard.
