har vo received shelter,-assistance, supplies and pro-

Spanish commanders in Florida, is clear and .un-

this has been the result of their weakness, rather
than of their will, if they have assisted the Indians

States, il.- p o.,fs contained in the documents here-
with enclosed, are conclusive. Mr. Pizarro's note
of eth of August, speaks of His Catholic Alajes-
ty's profound indignation at the sanguinaryry exe-
cution, on the Spanish soil, of the subjects of pow-
ers in amity with the King"-meaning Arbuthnot
and Ainbrister. ,Let Mr. -Pizarro's success6ri take
ithe trouble of reading the enclosed documents, and
h:1- I ;l rdi-...v-.r who A'rbuthnot and Amnbrister
n'. l-, .nI ..I.at were their purposes. That Ar-
XLIX.j buthnot was only theasuccessor of Nichoe,,
L\ ;l.r ar,j ASmbrister the agent of Woodbine,
aznti i.i ,u,all,. il of iMcGregor. Mr. Pizarro qual-
ifies Gen. Jackson's necessary pursuit of'a defeated
savage enemy beyond the Spanish Florida line, as a
shameful invasions of B s .M ajesty's territory-yet,
that territory was the'territory also of the savage
enemy, and Spain was bound to restrain them by
force, from hostilities against the United States-
and it was the failure of Spain to fulfil this eugagr-
mert, which had made it. necessary for Gen. Jack-
son i pursue the savage across the line. What then
was the character of Nicholls' invasion of His Maj-
esty's territory ; and where was his 2Majesty's pro-

LXI.i Letter from Peter B. Cc;ok (Arbuthnot's
-cierk) to hiza A. Carney at -Nassau dated Su-
wihnee., S1th Jan. 181i, giving an account ul their
operations with the Indians, against the Americans,
and their massacre of Lieut. Scott and his party.
." 'there was a boat that was taken by the In-
dians, that had in thirty men, seven women, four
sev..il children. There were siL of the men got
clear, and one woman saved, and all the rest of
them got killed. The children were took by the
leg, and their brains dashed out against the boat."'

I,..-Ud l.rl.i- '- 1.r c ti..ic l%, ::' wives and children are,
from day, to day, and from mght to night, expos-

,i"..,'- ol' J._ds hku these r should enquiry here-
Xafter be made, why, within three months alter'this
event, the savage Hamitlhli f liecoupon being tak-

d',.i..i- .,ir.iinu.ii -,ni e Is it not the usage ofle-
gitlinate warfare ? Is it not consonant to the sound-
est authorities of notir.ial law? When at war
(says Vattel) with a fe-.:.-.i.:: ti.ien, ha .. ib-
servesno rules and gran io iu quarlir, lihey 1111 be
chastised in the persons .of Ili-...- ..I thall:i i u irh...y

And again; "as a General has ih,1,: light of sacri-
ficing the lives of his enemies to his own safety or
that of his people, if hlie has to contend with an in-
human enemy, often guilty of such excesses, he
.may take the lives of some of his prisoners, and
treat them as his own people have been treated."
The justification of these principles is found in their
Ssaluta'-ry efficacy, fo- terror and for example, it


is thus only that the barbarities f'Tnin;..u: can lie
