THE SANDY POINT MUTINEERS. The Times Valparaiso correspondent has the fol- lowing under date Dec. 30th: The Sandy Point muti- neers are still at large and are trying to effect their escape northward through the pampas, or plains, of Patagonia, in the direction of Buenos Ayres. The fugitives are led by a man named Biquelme; they are ninety in number, some mounted, and all of them armed. They are taking with them about thirty women and children, and their progress is slow, since none of them know the country they are traversing. They were last seen some three days' journey to the ■outh of the Biver Santa Cruz (to cross which boats are required). Of the two men who saw them, one was killed, and the other succeeded in escaping to Sandy Point. The troops sent from here to restore order arrived on the 2nd inst. in the screw corvette O'JIiggina, and the settlers expected that the Magallanes, another corvette, would be sent immediately to Santa Cruz, in pursuit of the mutineers; and in order to co-operate In the punishment of those who have burnt their dwellings and robbed them of everything, the settlers formed a volunteer corps to the number of 100 men, for the pursuit of the fugitives by land. These colonists are mostly Europeans, and are acquainted with the country while Biquelme's men are not. They requested the governor to name an officer to command and were impatient to start. A Council of War was held on the 4th inst. The Governor of the colony was in favour of despatching the troops to tbe Biver Santa Cruz, and the captain of the Magallanes, seconding that view, declared that lie would be ready and able to start in a couple of hours but the Court ultimately decided to abandon the pursuit. Next morning this decision caused the greatest excitement and indignation throughout the colony. To allow these miscreants, who plun- dered the Government Treasury, the merchants' stores, and committed the most atrocious crimes, to remain at large and safe from danger of punishment is a bad augury for the future of a colony so far from any other military station, and it is besides a direct incentive to revolt among the troops of future garrisons. Of the prisoners taken two have been liberated already, one is the chaplain and the other a person named Vidaurre. It is likely that many more will be set at libertv soon. The troops sent by the O Higgins not being required to pursue the muti- neers, fifty were sent back to Valparaiso in the Straits steamer Galicia.
