(From the Times' Correspondent.)
   I think that I ventured a fortnight ago to predict that, come what might, the Confederate war ship Florida, piratically seized in the harbour of Bahia, would never be surrendered to the demands of Brazil, or any other Power ; and that if the Federal Government were compelled to apologise to Brazil, had otherwise to make reparation and the amende honorable, means would be invented to render it impossible to give up the ship. The prediction has been verified. The agency I supposed was that of accidental fire. In this respect I was wrong. The Florida has been “accidentally” run into by a Federal transport, under heavy pressure of steam, and sunk in nine fathoms of water. The “accident” will impose upon no one. Whether it will tend to exalt the character of the American people or that of their Government in the estimation of the world is a matter in which the majority of the Americans will give themselves no concern. It is a “smart Yankee trick,” and in a country where “smartness” ranks among the vertues [sic] the captain of the clumsy but effective transport which did the grateful mischief will doubtless expect to share the applause which has already been bestowed upon Captain Collins of the Wachusetts, and to be entertained at a public dinner by the solid men of Boston and the solider men of New York. There is but a small likelihood that he will be disappointed.

A POLICEMAN DROWNED.—At about half-past five o'clock on Saturday morning, a policeman named John Ward, 92 F, fell into the water at Kingstown harbour, near the Jetty, and was unfortunately drowned before assistance arrived. Three men who were near the Kingstown Railway Station, heard shouts, as if from a person who had fallen into the water, and ran as fast as possible to the spot, but on arriving could see nothing but a hat floating on the surface. At the same time two men out of Pilot boat No. 1, which was at anchor in Kingstown harbour, pulled to the place in a small boat, but could find no trace of the unfortunate man but a hat, which, on examination, proved to be that of the deceased, who had been on duty in that district, and who, it is supposed, while walking his beat, went too near the edge, being deceived by the glare of the lamp, and accidentally fell into the water. The body was recovered by means of a drag during the course of Saturday, and now awaits an inquest. The deceased was a fine looking man of good character, and about twenty-seven years of age. He had been about four years in the Metropolitan Police Force.—Saunders.
