    The Woolwich tender with impressed men, going down the river Tuesday at night, ran aground in Greenwich Reach. During the confusion which ensued, the men in the press room got on deck, and secured the vessel and making a raft, nine of them make for the shore. alarm being given, a body of sailors and marines were sent from the Tarta frigate, and arrived as a second raft was let into the water; but the latter firing on the mutineers, they submitted and retired to the press room. Of the nine men who left the ship on the first raft, most are supposed to have been drowned.
