'xtracts from report No. 3. of Charles Iaire and
Thomas F. Corncll, a gents for the examimnatio.s-
"and survey of WVest iFlorida lands, under instruc-
tions from the Navy Department, dated Novem-
[This part of the report includes the lands'purcha-
md by Government for thIe raising of live oak, and
ontains the information sought for by the resolution
f Congress of thie IGth December, 1830, on the
object of the ive oak in Florida.]
"The next growth of live oak, in the course of
e examinations of the agents, is to be found at-tic
usidence of Judge Breckenridge, on the St. Rosa
und, arid which place is noted on the map of Mr.-
Villiams, above referred to. The schedule No. 2
exhibits the growth on this place. The accompany-'
ig map will show the quantity of the land, in all
bout ten acres. (This comprises all the live oak
rnd of any value embraced within the three tracts
purchased by Government, the rest being barren and
productive, and of ro value.) Rumor having spread
broad in some directions such flattering tales of the "
mrge quantity, as well as the fine quality of live eak.
rowisg on this place, whilst in others it conmmuni-,
ated quite the reverse, the agents deemed it advise.
ble to be more critical in their examinations here
than if the same quantity of live oak had been fount
elsewhere. The sound as well as the unsound trees
are therefore thus exhibited in full, by which means
an opportunity is afforded of knowing both alike,
and the proportion of each; at the same time it fur-
nishes a just criterion to test the quality of the soil,
as well as the proportion destroyed by fire.
"Much has been said in favour of this peninsula as
a favorable site for raising live oak,, but the agents
are not fully impressed with the practicability of this
measure, and, with great deterrence and respect,
'take the liberty to suggest, that, before an undera-
kihng of such national importance as the raisingg of
1lie oak nurseries should be commenced, great atten-
'ton should be paid in making judicious selections,
combining as well the advantage of a FALORAnLLE SOIL
as that of a CONVENiENT SITUATION. The remarks
of Mr. Williams, who has written a book, accom-
panying his map, on west Florida, are in strict con-
formity with the result of the examinations of the
'agents. In one place, in speaking of this peninsula,
hlie says, "The peninsula extending between Pensa-
cola bay and Santa Rosa round (this is the land se-
lected for a live oak nursery) has not even clay be-
neath the sand; peat is sometimes found here in
extenave beds, with abundance of cypress and ccdar
stumps, standing far beneath the sand." Again, in
another yart of the work, he says, "the peninsula
'between Pensacola bay and Santa Rosa-sound i.s in
general pine barren, interspersed with bl.ck jacjk
ridges and savannahs of moist grazing land. On
each shore there are small hanmmocks, excellent for
sea island cotton, and would form beautiful country
"In the course of the examination thiusfar made
by the agents, they are of opinion that as yet they
lh:ve met with no position around these bays more
favourably, situated nor affording -greater facilities
-for its cultivation, particularly in so large a body, (a
most important consideration,) than the peninsulai
dividing the Escambia bay from thli Yellow Water
and Black Water bays. To illustrate this fact the
more forcibly, reference need only be had to the
-comparative, gowths of each place, excepting, how-
ever, the growth on the hammock, partly cleared by
"Mr. Gamier, at the eastern extremity of Sta. Rosna
sound, and which may as well be considered as being
at the mouth of Choctawhiatchiee bay. The soil on
this last named peainstla is of a strong, stiff texture
of the kind, mingled more or less with decomposed
vegetable e matter, together with calcareoussubstanc.s,
formed from various sea shells, and consequently
may be expected-to be lasting in richness. The soil
of the first named peninsula, vis: between Pensaco-
la bay and Sta. Rosa roun:l, though abounding also
In some of the above enrichening substances, is nev-
ertheless loose and impoverished in its texture, more
particularly so in the interior, while the interior of
the other produces all its growth both numerous and
,thrifty, even down to the pasture itself. The inte-
rio' growth of the former is scattering and stunted,
and the pasturage in most places approximating to
barrenness.. The live oak growing on the latter is
but little injured by fire, while that of the former has
three-fourthsi of its quantity more or less injured by it.
"The superihicumbent soil of the latter is founded
upon a stratum of clay, that of the former upon a
bed of peat, which may be seen in many places pro-
truding itself into the sound.
"From these facts it may be promised that the soil
of the latter will be retentive of its cultivation, whilst
the'former must soon become almost barren. But
these facts aside, which experience has made useful
prognosticks tq the agriculturist, t%'e comrpatrave-
growth of the live oak on both places will at once
suffice to give the latter described peninsula a pre-
ference over the former; and at the same time to
point out this peninsula as being the most stuiable
position, containing a body of the best land for the
p-ropogation of the liver oak, which has as yet come
-within the observation of the agents, extending from
.the Perdido river around to the settlement of Mr.
Garnier, at the head of Sta. Rosa sound."

NEW Yotm.-April 2,-2 o'clock P. M.-We
have our files to the llth. A Havre paper of that
date says, that a teleg-raphi cnnmmnication has been
madeatLvons, that a serious REVOLUTION HAD
BROKEN OUT IN ITALY-that '"Reggio, Bo-
logno, and Modena had been overthrown, and that
the Duke of Modena had been killed.
POLAND.-The Polish Diet have issued a long
answer to the proclamation of General Count Die-
bitsch, which is a spirited document, and which con-
clun'ls as follows. "The Polish nation, united in its
Diet, declares, that for the future, it constitutes an
independent peoples which has the right to confer
the Polish crown upon him whom it shall deem wor-
thy of it--upon him whom it shall judge capable of
subserving faithfully the principles which he shall
have sworn to, and of preserving untouched the Na-
tional Liberties." The declaration was signed un-
animously,by the members of the Diet.
The Captain of the packet, who arrived at Havre
two days after the date of our papers, says the news
was confirmed previous to his departure.
, Defamation.--La. evening a slherifi"s jury was
impanelled to assessrfitages in the case of John
SBaker, Jr. and Anfiaiaria, his wife, versus Alex-
ander T. Stewart.
From the evidence laid before the jury it appeared
that on their 23 Nov. 1830, Mrs. B. accompanied
by another lady who was about to purchase some
goods, went into the store of Mr. Stewart in Broad-
way; after a short time Mr. S. charged Mr-s. B. with
having stolen some cravats at which she had been
On behalf of the plaintiffs it was shown that two
highly respectable boardinghouse keepers in this city
refused to permit Mrs. B, to remain in tl~h"r estab-
lishments, in consequence of the charge so made.
On the other side evidence.was brought forward
to show that Mr. Stewart had grounds for suspicion
from some circumstances, that he did nit act in a
rough manner, and that Mr. Seymour, one of the
boardinghouse keepers who declined to permit the
stay of Mrs. B., for some time before wished to have
Mrs. B. removed from his house; the reason given
for this by Mr. S., was that Mrs. B. was eccentric.
On being asked to define this eccentricity, he stated
that "she(Mrs. B.) sometimes whispered her husband
at table," and other things of that kind. The jury'
returned at half past 12 o'clock,and ssessed'the daru'..
ages at 1000 dollars for the plaintiff.

THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1831.
("'P The Charge of Judge Randall to the Grant

This opinion of Col. White, fully e':rla0ins to us the pii,tciples
on wihi,,h he irs-i'd his circular, and on which the Floridian is
condneted. Remenlter. says he to his fiuicnds, the people
"wil inot b-li viw the trath if you tell it to themm" Why tell
it to them then It will ,e useless. Try untruths then.-
Tll them all there falsehoods yon can, and if one be detected
to day. try another to morrow. We, however, do not by any,
nieans agree with Col Whits in h:s opinion of the people of
the Territory. If they will lay aside their prejudices and ex-
amine coollv,they will believethe truth ; they wantto believe
the truth, and if it could be plainly laid before the great body
of the people, and they he properly made to understand it,
Col. White would be in a vetv lean minority. He would
have on his side, only those who have made up their minds
notto believe the truth.
If we had thought with Col. White that the people would
not believe the truthl, we neer should have put pen to pape:,
upon lthe subject of the Col's. improper conduct, and his un-
fitnessto representnts. It is solely upon the prevAlence of
truth over the mindsof the people, that werely for the election
of Col. Gadsden. We are inclined to think that Col. White
begins to be afraid, that lie was mistakenin the very flattering
opinion he had cxp' essed, with regard to the people. The
very low spirits hlie seemed to be in while he wasin this piece,
can only be accounted for, by supppsing that he began to dis-
cover that the people were beginning to believe the truth.-
Some sneeringly accounted for it in another way; but on that
we say nothing.
Scazr eat.-What a difi'eence it makes in the current of
the blood, when the thermometer is at 96 or at zero. Dur-
ing the very hot weather last summer, our late delegate was
allfbr carrying the war into Africa. Bnt the e 'traordinary
cold winter-we are told it was dr'eadfnd at Waslhingto--hlas
so cool.'d down the temperature of his blood, th-at tie has be-
come quite pecerbly disposed; and it is g
pedition,but of any other ofa simn'lar nt-ture. W'e co' grat-
bM'te our .litiOens on th *'''vS ;-5-'. nn'1 tjr rf,'ari r'' -n
no more rumor of "war! horrid war!
Some one in the Floridian, we presume it is Col. White,
talks about the Col. being "dissatisled with Gen. J'ckson,
because all hii friends ar'e'v-eptfi'om office." HIow is this?
Is ittliatthe friend's selected by Col. White are unfit to fill
their offices? Or is it that th.,t the colonel's character is in
puch ba'. od. ar "nat the palace at VWashinaton,'" thnt his fri'nd-.
ship is almost fatal to a man. The p'tiful snecer at the Presi-
dent, in talking of the "palace at Washington," is disgracefiul
to him, both as a man and deleErgte.
A writer iri the 'lo"'idian, over the sinrnaturr of a voter.
and evidently Col. White, says, "there is some art top in
bringingon rucb a discussion (regarding political principles,'
on your part, and lenvi-ng suspicion to rested o that of your po-
litical opponent, hiav:g previously ascertained thnat he will
not be driven intosat;h a d-claration." Now, weshould like
to know what is th' season that Ccl. White will not bh driven
into a declaration of his political principles ? There can be
but oe. a consciosu-'ss f fhis duplicity-It is this which
makes himashamed and afraid toilet the people know to
which party he belongs. If lihe declares for C:ay and Web-
ster, the ackson mmen will despise him as a double dealing
traitor; ifhe declares for Jackson. the Clay and WVebster men
will de'pis" him. as an unprincipled time serving politician.
He is in a sad dilemma! Iiow is he to ext'icatet himself? Ohs
sayshis friend, lie favors no party! lie proclaimts no peru-
liar creed! Are you for Jackson Col? Oh my dear sir, I fa-
your no party- Are yeonfor Clay and XWebster? I have no
peculiar creed! If the" Col. has a particle of independent
spirit. how grating to his feelings it must be to quirk and quib-
ble and evade in this manner. IHow pitifiul! We venture to
assert that our late Delegate, is the only man in the Territory,
similarly situated. 'What aun unenviable pre-eminence.
JWonderfdl.-In thi' two last Floridians, Col. White has been
silent abnut tlie speculators. Is he conscience stricken, or is
he haunted by the e'osts of his own speculations? Why has
the Col. tnken so much pains to denounce the speculators ?
Does he want to d:rive th-m from the course, that he may
have the whole track to himself? If it be disreputable int
them, is it less so in a delegate? He certainly bearsaway the
palmn front everyone we have heard of. They generally buy
good land and sell at an advance, but the Col. buys the poor-
est, and from his character as a dleeate, is enabled to sell
even his wat'tr-as good ntear and cotton land. Is it not a
tittle singular that a mnan who has bor.-'t anrd sold eight or
ten tracts of land, containing as man' thousand acres ,of
land and water, sno'ld be centiuutlly bawling out ,-'""'il-
tors!:soeculators! W''at has Col. Gadsdcn to do with the
son to believe that Col. White gave currency to the report, if
he were not I he first person who brought it to the Territory.
We cannot think otherwise but thnt Col. White must have
known that ther- was not the sligtcrst f'undot0:icn for the re-
beli f of it to a friend of Col.'W:hite, bnot he told us that there
conid !,e no doubt of the truth of i, that he ihad just then been
converting wv.ith the Ccl. on ite subject, wl;o assured him
that it was certainly so. Conscio'rs of the opportunities that
Col. White must necessarily he'v. to know the truth, we were
constrained to believe that it was so. W"e could not suprose
that he wSnas deceived himself, nor could we think that he
would venture to deceive other', when the deception must be
so soon detected. We noiv however see that the whold was
an electioneering trick, and a iitifnl one it was. It was ino
doubt expected that it wou'd operate injuriously to "Colonel
(Gadsden, if the people could be made to believe, that Mr
.Calhoun intenrcei to offr for the presidency, and his friends
in Carolina had q:uarrelled wit!' General Jackson,
Col. WV. scorns to feel. very disposition to rest the contest
between him and Col. Gadsden upon any thing else, rather
than upon the comparative merits of the two candidates. HIe
depends principally for his election upon his quarrel with
judge W right, with Mr. Thomas, with Gov. Dnval, with the
surveyors, and upon his persecutions! persecutions! These
lie hopes will counterbalance his liud and water speculation%,
his impositions on tli government; his selling them Liie Oak
timbernot aparticle of which Commodore Rogers could find
after five days examniation ; and his dIlircity in pretending to
be of the Jackson party-, when his friends confess that hle "fa-
vours no party."
Col. White shows us that if he abuses those opposed to him,
he can praise his friends. And he, hias selected Mr. Wyatt
and Mr. Kingsley as most worthy of this distinction. Of th6
former lie owns that he' has spoken harshly. How harshly he
does not tell us. But he now tells Mr. Van Buren that he is
an honest man and is -- not infamous. Is not the Col.
afraid that Mr. Van Buren may take his praise as ironical?
Mr. Kingsley the other favourite of the Col. is a rich man
and a classical scholar. Mr. Van Buren probably cares very
little about Mr. K's riches. HIe might think a little more of
him on account of his classical scliolarship. To satisfy him
upon that point, we should like to know if the Col. sent on to
the Departmentaof state a certain pamphlet published by Mr.
K..advocatit't#the breeding of Mlulattoc!. There son'ms to
be something ominous in this unini of tlhe Col. with Mr. K.
and with the Webster party of Masuachusetts. They have
repealed the law in Massachusetts which prohibits the mar-
riage of blacks and whites. And the Col. is praising Mr.
King-ley for his classical attainmcnts. Mr. Kingsley's hopes
must be reviving and we shall perhaps soon 'see a new edition
of the ".*'', .. "'**. pamphict," revised and corrected by
our late Delegat'.

that the services were the inducement to the grant, but were not
the consideration, Or is he too dull to understand the distinc-
tion ? If improvement and cultivation were not requisite,
why did the commissioners report, that no evidence was ex-
hibited to show that the conditions of thegrant were complied
with. And why did they refer t thtir' general principles, re-
Ilting to grants for services. The editor' of the Floridian, ei-
ther wilfully misrepresents, or he is too deficient in intellect to
comprehend whlt he reads. We uspectthe latter, for itwould
be too uncharitabl to suppose that he always says, what he
knows to be untrue.
The Floridian states, that the editor has in his possession, a
copy of the original grant to Pintado! and "that the grant is
absolute, for public services, with tie power to possess and
cultivate, instead of being conditioned to cultivate and im-
prove." This must bo a wilful and deliberate falsehood; and
we prove it by Col. White himself. We have now before us
the report of the commissioners,Messrs. Overton and White.
From it we make the following extracts.

For the Florida Courier.
Some of the friends of Capt. POTTS, of Gadsder
county, who interfered to counteract and remedy
the gross imposition practised upon their friend and
neighbour, think it due to themselves, to make the
following statement. In taking the course they did,
they were actuated less by indignation at the oppres-
sor, than by a regard to a kind hearted, guileless,
unsuspecting man, a victim to the wily cunning of
an experienced lawyer.
Capt. Potts was an officer in the revolution, and
under the pension law was entitled to arrearages of
his pension. This was paid to Col. White. The
Col. sent Mr. Potts $600, which was one half of the
sum coming to him, and told him that he would give
him the balance when he cameoto the Territory.-
Whe:i Col. White came to the Territory, he delayed
under various excuses, paying the money which he
had received. Capt. Potts was thus placed in a most
unpleasant situation, as relying to a certainty on re-
ceivineg the balance of his pension from Col. White,
he had e:pended the money previously received-
The friends of Capt. Potts, in a short time became
aware of the unpleasant situation in which he was
'placed by Col. White refusing, or neglecting to let
"him have his money, and they afforded him all the
assistance in their power, not only to relieve him
from the unpk .sant situation in which he was placed,
but to striaulate Col. White, from a sense of shame
or jn utic,', to repair the injury le had done and was
:til! doing. The neighbours began to talk in no very
measured terms !f tlhe conduct of Col. White, and
at last, we b'eieve, from a dread of an exposure of
his conduct, he came over to Capt. Potts, and gave
him a draft on Washington. As may be supposed,
Capt. Potts wais delighted at getting his money, and
thought the business was settled. But not so. Be-
fore the Col. went away in the evening -" Captain
Potts," says he, "perhapsI may want that money;
can't you wait a little longer; I will give you an order
on n g.enilelman who keeps a store in Tallahassee, for
$100, and do you give me the draft back again!!"
The good, kind hearted, unsuspecting old nian, gave
up the draft, and with the exception of the order for
$100, was jnst where he was before.
We need -.: .c-.-Iy mention that universal indigna-
tion was felt, I y .lic friends of Capt. Potts, at this
conduct of Col. White. In this situation, Captain
Potts thought that the best plan to get his money was
to get the Col. to purchase him a piece of land.-
Trusting to the judgment of Col. White, Capt. Potts
took the land without having previously seen it. The
settlement is miserably situated, and the family of
Capt. Potts soon found that they would be devoured
bymoschetos, and that they could not live at it. This
new imposition on the kind hearted old man, by no
means lessened the indignation which had been ex-
cited among his friends, by the previous conduct of
Col. White. They spoke their sentiments very
freely, and threatened to expose his conduct. To
prevent this, Col; White agreed to take back the
It may be the case that Col. White did let Capt.
Potts have part of the land, at the same nominal price
it which he bought it. But how did he pay for it?
Will it be believed, that at the very time that he de-
tained Capt. Potts mone3, he shaved notes held by
Mr. Delphy, who was building his house, and depos-
ited them with the President of the Tallahassee bank,
to pay for, or secure the payment of, the land which
he bought of Mr. Manning, and sold to Mr. Potts,
and with one .f ''.,- notes of $100 he afterwards '
"paiadfo'-tc .'TTlwhicb he bought for Capt. Potts; -
Col. White says that the other eighth was sold to
Capt. Potts, at the same price that he had been offered
for it. But who made the offer of $5 per acre?-
Col. White's own brother! Comment is needless.
Thet offer was a sham, made by one brother to the
other, and had the effect of fixing the price which
Cap:. Potts was to pay for the land.
In his letter Capt. Potts states that ho'had been
offered the same money by others. The Capt.means
that he was oftiired the same price for part of one
eiZhth. Who was it made the offlr? Let the friends
of Co'. White ask Capt. Potts, and he will tell
thoml that no one but the brother of Co!. White ever
made him such an offer. And he knew that Capt.
Potts could not sell that part witnont materially in-
jirinag his tract.
Col. White asks how much did lie make by it,--
We do net know exactly; but he made $150 by
shaving trle notes, and sold the eighth he-had entered
for t8500 more than he gave for it. So thatho made
$t450 out of a trade of about $900. No bad specu-
lation. In addition, the Capt. made him a present
of $100, for some little repairs on an old house. It
will be scarcely credited, but it is a fact that the Col.
That Capt. Potts was most grossly imposed on,
through the whole transaction, none can deny, who
will pay attention to the proceeding recital. Why
did not Col. White give him the money which he had
received from him? Why did lie beg back the draft
on Washington? And how could lie make him pay
four times as much for the. land as he gave for it, on
the flimsy pretext that his brother had offered him
that much for it? And why did Ih persist in retain-
nag his money, whenhlie knew the unpleasant situa-
tion in which Captain Potts was placed, from the
want of it?
With perfect confidence, we appeal to the good
feelings of our fellow-citizens to decide, if we were
not perfectly justifiable in intefering as we did,to res-
cue from oppression and imposition our neighbour
and friend, .in old, kind hearted, guileless officer of
the Revolution. Friends of Capt. Potts.
For the .Florida Courier.
"During a residence of nine years in our
Territory, I can say, (says Col. White in his cir-
c'ulanr) that I never offered violence, intentionally,
to the feelings pf an individual." Yet, in the
same circular he speaks of the acts of individuals
as "exciting disgust in the heart of every citizen
of Florida"-of "base and malicious slanderers
who wish to cast him aside to gratify the malice
of individuals"-And has himself in his speeches
at barbecues, and at p.iblic places, held up to
execration persons "of most gross and groveling
nfamy," 'and an individual in particular, with
whom "infamy is popularity, and obscurity pun-
shment." He has denounced, collectively, all
hose politically opposed to him, as backbiterss,
persecutors, calumniators, infamous liars," (I use
his own very conciliatory language) andbal'gpo-
ten of those who have changed their optreno of
him, as a set of discontented office seekers, kind
'-or the Florida Courier.-
My neighbours have been in a constant state
of alarm ever since our Delegate put us on our
guard against a "Nucleus formed to rule the
Territory." We felt the more frightened as he.
spoke on the authority of a "little man of in-
famy;" and I was resolved therefore to find out
the conspirators, and expose them before they
had rivetted the chains on our necks. After a
most diligent search through the files of some
old newspapers, I found in the columns of the
Floridian, where Mr. Wyatt spoke of the same
nucleus as composed of a Mr. McCarty, Mr.
Willis, Mr. Thornton, and Capt. Duval Three
out of the four, political friends of Col. White!";
Can it be possible that these very respectable"
gentlemen have combined for the purposes stated I
by our Delegate? If they have, we now know'.:);.
them, and the people are placed on their guard'
against their machinations. How patriotic, in
the Col. to denounce his own friends least they
should rule the Territory to the exclusion, we
presume, of the rest of his party. ..
M- I -.OUKY.
For the Florida Courier.
Col. White complains bitterly that his private
speculations are made subjects of newspaper in-
vestigation. Who commenced this kind of war-
fare? Col. White himself. Has he not consid-
ered the speculations of Col. Gadsden's friends
as objections to the Colonel. Is land specula-
tion a political offence? If so, we have only
shewn that Col. White does not stand acquitted.
of the charge; for he has speculated on govern-,
ment and individuals, on friends and foes, deeply]
and successfully. It is however, an old adag.;
that two of a trade cannot agree. It is not sur-
prising, therefore, that Col. White should Iane-
no very friendly feelings towards those who wish
to glean a little, as well as himself.
JMr. Editor-I understand that Col. White has
said that one Virginia vote is as good as nine Caroli-
na votes. This I suppose is because the Col. was
educated at a Virginia College, where he tells us "all
our great statesmen are educated." Will he tell us
how many Georgia votes are worth one Virginia vote?

Mfr. Editor-- perceive by one of. the S. Carofi-
na newspapers that Col. Hayno denies'the truth of
the report that General Jackson returned him a let-
ter with the word "insolent" written on it. I have
been informed on very good authority that this report
was confirmed by Col. White, and that his friends
have been using it and some others equally well found*
ded to electioneer on. As the Col. seemed to be so
certain of the truth, I should like to know on what-
authority lie propagated the report. Surely one of"
uis high standing, who keeps such a budget of intra- r.j
huctory letters to publish when he finds the people
ikely to forget his character and standing, could. not
tave given currency knowingly to a false report, that
iis friends might electioneer with some better hopes
of success. Lest you should not she the contradic-
ion of Col. Hayne I send you the article. X.-,
