On the 6th the Steam-boat arrived here--among the strangers who came passengers in her, were Lord Selkirk, col. Leavenworth, Maj. J. Anderson, and S. Towsley, Esq. (of N.Y.) with their ladies.

Col. Leavenworth, we learn, will shortly take command at this post.

Melancholy Accident.--On the 22d August last, was drowned near the Island of Mackina, by falling overboard the schooner Tiger, J. Monroe, a discharged soldier. He was a young man, between 17 and 18 years of age, of fair complexion, and enlisted in or near Boston.--His relatives may hear something of importance to them by applying to Capt. Jacob B. Varnum U.S. Factor at Chicago, as it is believed he has in his possession his discharge which will entitle them to a patent for bounty land.
