From the Louisiana Advertiser
May 2S ln.
Wc yesterday noticed a most attrd'
cious act of piracy committed on the
coast of loxas by a vessel under the
Mexican flag and commanded by a no
lorious pirate; who was tried Lcre a few
years since for a similiar offence and
narrowly escaped with his life.
We have been politely furnished with
the following correspondence which
clearly proves that our intelligent mer-
chants and underwriters early foresaw
the dangers to be apprehended to our
valuable commerce in the GultofMex
ico and took all proper means to avert
It is to be lamented that the answers
to the following letters cannot at this
moment be found but th substance of
MOST ATROCIOUS PIR W Y.
We learn by a gentleman
just arrived Irom Texas that a
vessel called the Montezuma
commanded by a notorious Pi-
rate who has been tried for
his life on a charge of piracy in
this city is now cruising offthe
coast of Texas and purporting
to be a Mexican national ves-
sel. The schr. Columbia under
Mexican colors with a carp;o
worth upwards of 50000
dollars bound from this port to
Brazoria; and the schr. Martha
under American colors with a
cargo valued at 10000 dollars
have both been seized by this
Pirate and nominally ordered
to Vera Cruz for adjudication;
but from the circumstance that
When we consider the im
mouse value of our trade to end
from Mexico that it is con-
ducted altogether in small un-
anncd vessels Ia.du with the
precious metals in exchange
for the merchandize transported
it is not surprising that such a
commerce should excite the
cupidity of the pirate: and not
less surprising that it should so
long have been .left unprotected
by our own government.
