Suspected American slaveship returned under naval guard to New York
The American bark Emily arrived in New York under the charge of a United States Navy prize crew with Lieutenant H. K. Stevens from the U.S.S. Portsmouth in command. The vessel had been captured off the coast of Africa in mis-September as a suspected slave trader. Several of its crew and captain were aboard when it arrived in the harbor and the U.S. Marshal took them into custody to await investigation. (By John Osborne)
