PUBLIC PRAYERS FOR O’CONNELL.

-Athlone Sentinel, a Radical Paper.
The ship Edward, Captain STEEL, on her passage from Philadelphia to Monte Video, was struck by a sword fish; the sword of which penetrated through the copper, plank, and ceiling, into a barrel of flour, causing the ship to leak the remainder of the voyage.
The captain had the plank cut out, and intends bringing it home as a curiosity.
