bn-ifit V. lichI '.otald i silt from the con-
tenp1.lated chan-e. iithe course of
these essays, i shall take for granted, andi
consider as acknowledged, those great
principles of liberty and republicanism,
for which the heroes and fathers of the
revolution fought in the field and toiled in
the cabinet, and whib h were afterwards
more firmly established, as well by the
conveiitions in most of the States, as by
that immortal bind of worthies who plan-
red the Constitution of the United States.
If any remain unconvinced of the correct-
ness of ihesc principle-s, no argument of
oiur: cold coii irce thle: ; indeed, it is
apprehended the difficulty of forming, a
Constitution will not consist so much in
a want of acquiescence in the truth ofthe
principles upon which it should be estab-
lished, as in the local interests of some sec-
tions of the State, the private interests and
views of self-aggrandizemrent of.many,
as well as a general iidilference and ap-:
p.,thy on the subject.
In discharge then of; the task a.si-:ned
ourselves, let us consider by itself each
of the departments ofthi government-the
executive, the leogslati 'i,. and judiciary.
The first refleciiciii which occurs to as
when examinin jhlie prlseit. charter with
this view, is, that these several powers are,
ina 'ery great degree, all blended together.
The Governor, Di puty-Governior, Sen-
ators and Reprcsentati,-es, all convene to-
gether for the transaction of business, and
are then called the General Assembly.
Thus unit-d, they possess the power of
making all laws, without any check or
control from any quarter, as well as of
superinteniding the execution of them; of
making all appointments to office, includ-
ir. tiat of j.idge, and roiintrissionirg allof-
fr.. i ; of esial.'. -,ning co..urts, both tuperior
and inf'rior, :.nd dilu ig tleir seuVral ju-
risdictions; aqd, either by the words of
the charter, or by implication, or by cus-
tom, even that of deciding contro.ver.i.s
inthe last resort, of aii,i'jir, t i. u,.1.i -
sments of courts and the verdicts ofrjur;c .
This is an outrageous violation of the po-
litical maxim, that the legislative, execu-
tive, and judiciary departments, ought to
be kept separate and distbi,:t ; a, maxim,
the correctness of which has long been un-
ie "-s.!la.'i.ii lie1.g :d'in thiscountry,but
mli.r: is v r ai ; fi it,. to be carried int:.


operation in a proper extent, aid whic-,
has indeed been frequently violated in.

The committee took up the bill report-
ed by the Bank committee, to enforce the
act of incorporation, by prohibiting the
pretended distribution of shares for the
purposes of undue influence in thle elec-.

Mr. Spencer proposed various amend-
ments, intended to render the provisions
of the bill more effectual; all of which
were agreed to.
Mr. Bassett moved' then two amend-
ments, the first, .substantially, to compel
the Bank to redeem all its notes with spe-
cie, at whatever branch they might be
presented for payment. The object of
the second amendment was to prohibit any
director of the Bank, while acting as such,
-from dealing in the stock of the Bank.-

From the Washington City Gazette.

VENEZ UELIAN PROCLAMATION.
SiuNox BOLIVAR, chief supreme of 'ie re-
public of Venezuela, capitain-general of
its armies and those of New- Grenada, &ce.
T TO THE PEOPLE OF VENEZUELA.
The Congress of Venezuela must fix
the fate of this so many years oppressed and
wandering- republic : Our wounds will
heal under the shelter of a legitimate re-
presentation. It is not by a vain ostenta-
tion, nor to make my own apology, that I
address you : I have served you, and owe
you an account of my conduct.
When nature's convulsions buried the
people of Venezuela under the heaviest-
dejection, General Monteverde brought
to nothing our new-born republic. Fear-
ing rather tyranny than death, I then bade
farewell to the shores of Venezuela, and /
went in search of the war, that raged a-
gainst the tyrants of New-Grenada,, as the
only relief to the pangs of my heart.-
Heaven listened to my vows and lamen-
tations, and the government of Cartha-
gena entrusted to my care 400 soldiers,
which in a few days liberated Magda-
lena, a.nd.the greater part of the province
of Santa Martha. I after yards marched to
Cuenco, and there uii.toryv dI lied for
our. arms. Venezuela, saw me appear
upon its territory crowned with the fa-
vors of fortune.
The Congress of New-Grenada granted
me leave to redeem my native country.
I had soon the good fortune to reinstate
the authorities constituted in the first
epoch of the republic,in the provincesof
Truxilla, Meridla, and Barinas. The
capital, of Caraccas received in its bosom
the 'brave Grenadians. Puerto Cabello,
protected by its walls, attracted soon my
attention by its resistance, and hardly
gave ime time to take measures to save
f,.,min disorders the populous country we
had wrested from the tyrants of Spain.
Salmon's expedition gave new hopes
to the royalists ; and, though defeated at
Barbulo and las Orincheras, infused such
confidence in ourt enemies, that the plain
and the western part of Venezuela revol-
ted ; almost as sudden tle battles of M:'--
quitero & Araure le.-.-itJ t'ILc west.-)n p:,tiii
and the plain. I Ie .ned cl. t'r.-i m the

I matched to Ncv-Grenada ; gave :c-
counts tothe Congstiss of the -uccess of
my commission; they rewarded my serv-
ices, though fruitless, entrusthing to me a
new 'army of Grenad ins and Vcnezucla-
nos. Cartnagena piovcd the grave of
that army, that was to restore life to Ve-
nezuela .
I forsook every thing for the safety of
the mother country ; I volunti rlY chose to
banish myself, that I might be useful to
New-Grenada and Venezuela. Provi-
dence had already resolve upon the ruin
of those wretched regions, and delivered
them to Morillo with his exterminato.Irv
bands.
I sought after an asylum in a foreign is-
land; I came to 'amaico alone, helpless
and almost hopelks,. Though Venezuela
and Nev-Gilernada were lost, y't I durst
think of expeling- their tyri'nts. The
Island of -Haydi received me with hos-
pitality ; the magnanimous President Pe-
tion lent me his pro.,action; amid under
his auspices I formed an c.sp edition of
three hundred men, comparable to the
companions of Leonidas. Almost all of
them have fallen, yet the exterminatory
army has fallen also: three h iiu ded pat -
riots marched to destroy ten thoisan.d Eu-
ropean tyrants, and have succeeded.
When I arrived at Margaritta, a Gener-
al Assembly elected me supreme chief gf
the nation : I had a mind to convoke the
Congress. I, in effect, convoked it a few-
months afterwards; the events of war did
not however permit me to accomplish that
wishedtfobr act of national will.
Free Guyana I Free, the greater part of
Venezuela! nothing hinders us now from
restoring to the people their sovereign
rights. Venezuelians, our arms have over-
thrown the obstacles which tyranny oppo-
sed to ourt tmaicipation. In the name of
the delivering army, I put you ih posses-
sion of the enjoyment of your imprescripti-
ble rights; our soldiers have fin-.hIit to sat e-
their brethren, wives, fathers and sons; but
did not fight to subjugate them. The ar-
my of Venezuela only imposc- upor, you
the condition, that you *.houlbl ke.p entiat
the sacred deposit of liberty. I impose
upon you another condition- not 'less just
and necessary to the attainment of that
'precious state. Elect for your rinaqgis-
ti-t s the most virtuous of your fellow
citizens, and forget, if you can, in your
choice, those who delivered you. For my
part, I renounce, forever, the power you
have conferred upon me ; and I will never'
admit of any other but a military one, as
long as lasts- the unhappy war of'Venezue-
la. The first moment of peace will be the
last of my command.
Venezuelanos i cast your e\ye upon thei
past, but to shudder at the shoals which
have undone you-withdraw your eyes
from the woeful monuments that recall to
your memory painful losses. Think :on l
of what v.-.u iit e about to do, and petietrate
well yourselves that you are all Vcnezue-
lanos, the sons of one same country, mem-
bers of the same society, and citizens of
one same republic. The word of Venez-
uela is liberty and peace. Our arms con-
quered peace: your wisdom till give us
liberty. SIMON BOLIVAR.
H. Q. .ugustura, 22d Oct. 1818.

S .NEw-YoRK, February 28.
Curracoa papers to the 25th of Dec.
have been received. They give some ac-'
counts ofVenezuelian affairs which appear
correct. Gen. .Morillo was at Caraccas,
but was daily expected to join the royal
head-quarters .t Calabozo, where there
were 4000 troops, having communication
with two other corps, one of 3000, under
Gen. Calzada, at Barinas, and the other of
3200, at Ceuta. The royal commanders,
it was said, will open the, campaign with
12,000 fighting nmen, two ,thirds natives,
and have garrisons in Carapano, Cumana,
Barcelona, Laguira, Porto Cabello, Va-
lencia, kc. The Patriot forces are calcu-
lated at 8000, mostly Europeans, many of
them English. The 'omnmencement of
hostilities may be daily expected.

Extract of a letter, dated Aux Cayes, Jan-

"General Gregor McGregor has just
arrived here with an armed ship and brig;
he expects hourly from London ten other
vessels, which sailed in company with him.
i The object of his visit is not known.
In conversation with one of the princi-
pal officers, this day, he told me, he-ex-
pected there would be from two to four
thousand troops on board the .lhiltir,-., :.nd
they should', immediately on the arrival of
the remainder of tlhe squadron,, make an
.attack on some of the principal towns or
cities on the coast of South-America."

ScTTi.F.;irNr, AND LIMITS, BETWEEN THEIR
Uritrr o STATES AND SPAIN, as recently
cocn td-.'.! at this place, by Secretary Ad-
.'rns a.t D:.rn Luis de Onis.


A.s thI Treaty, though ratified on our
part, v.'il! not be promulgated officially un-
trl it L.a al-io been ratified by the sove-
reign of Spain, we shall state the princi-
pal provisions, as distinctly as we have been
able to ascertain them, of this important
ia~tru.ment.',


1 ry th'i Ti-:.:(,, e unuirstnhl., i-;'
i FLORIDA.\, ir..!iii, :.- ,li ;the rl.ims o
. Spain to territory e:at of the Missisippi, is
crl'DEt i'i FULL tuVrcigait'' to the United
State'i.
That the western boundary, bctv.-cen the
territory of the United States and that of
Spain, is adjuitAcl as follows: iBeinnin-
with the mouth of-the. Sabine river, and
running with thie we.t bank thereof to-the
north-West limit of the State of Louisiana .
thence by a dii ect line north to the Red
river; thence akI.ng tIhe southI Larik r that
riverlto the one hundredth degree of lon-
gitude; thtncc on that meridian to the
Arkansaw; and thence ahlrng the Aikan-
saw t. its source, in the forty-second de-
gree of north latitude; and thence upon
that parallel to the Pacific.
A 'im, not e:ceecling f:.- n millions .:q
dcolar., is to be paid by the: Uiitcd States,
out of the. proceeds of the sales of land in
Florida, or in stock orm'money. as the Con-
gi Sis may prescribe, to our c in citiz-rn:
on account of spoliatirns and other inju-
ries received by them from the" govern-
meimt of Spain, or from the 'ovcrriinefits.
of the colonies of Sp.-in.
To liquidate these claims, a board is to.
be constituted by the government of the
Unied States, o- Anierican citizens, to
consist of three commissioners, who are to
make their report within three years.
There is a mutual .renuniation, or the
part of the two governments, of futilihe-
claims on each othlr for spoliaticins, Stc.
Spanish citizens are to enjoy, on the
principle of the Louisiana trc.ity, their amo
privileges as'Animiican cikizer ns, iri the
partss of St. Aug.istine arid Pensacola, for-
S1 lternm of twelve years.
T The-,c are the e-sseitial provisions of the
Treaty, mIlhich is t.- iake cflV-ct cn the ex-
change, of the ratifications, within sj'z.
months of the present date.
It is probable tilat Mr. Fotisth, (our
newly appointed IMlinisler to Spain, will
he'the bearer of this Treaty, and that the
ratifications will be 'chaiiged long before
the coiniirn-'-ement of the n-xt session of
Congress : in the contemplation of -.%hi.h
event, it is probable that Congress will,
before they adjourn, pa s ai ai t autihori-
zing the Executi e to receive -he siur i-'n-
der of thie pi oi' cesf Florida from the
Spanish authorities, and to establish an in,-
dependent government their eiri.
We f,:;ikiitate the c ounti'.- on this am,ra-
ble and satisfactory termination of the te-
dious, and hitherto' ;npl,-asant negocia-
tions with Spain. he attiair.rTicrt .-'ei-
ther of th1 three. ..j,:cts, the cession of
Florida, the settlement of the Westiern
.boundary, or the recognition and provision
for the adjustment of the claims of : iir
citizens on Spain, would have been .in-
sidered as an epoch in the history -of .our
Foreign Relations. The union ,of ihe
three will make this Treiaty ( icbly accept-
able to the An r.ik-n people.
It terminates the. only. existing contro-
versy with any of the Europeat powers.
It rounds off our Southern pc ssess5ions,
and forever .rccliels foreign rmissarict
from stirring up Indians to war and Ne-
groes to rebellion, whilst it gives to the
Southern country important cutlet. lto hie-
sea. It adjusts the vast West rn bouindra-
ry, acknowledging the Uiiit d States to be,
sovereign, under 'the hitherto conici ted
Louisiana treaty, over all the turoitory we
ever seriously contended for. In a word,
it is a Treaty., than which the most san-
guine have not anticipated one much rorr
favorable : it is one that fully comes up
to the expectations of the great body of
the Ame ircan people.

The Report in the Senate of the U'. S.
adverse to the conduct of the Seminole

SbfVirginia, being in favor .f, and Messrs.
i.aton, of Te'nnc sie, and King, of New-
York, against it. Mr. Lacock drew up
the report, which censures Generai .tJick-
son in strong terms, particularly for order-
ing General Gaines to take possession of
St. Auiustine, and for rni pl,.irig voltun-
teers, when he was directed to make re-,
quisitions of militia. This last is a new,-
and we should hardly think a tenable
ground of censure; at least, the Senator
from this State, one would suppose, could
not consistently maintain it.

WVe understand there -are claims to a
very considerable amount, under the new
Spanish treaty, held in this town; but it
is calculated that the five millions appro-


priated by that treaty, will not pay 25 per
cent. of the whole amount claimed. On
this .subject, the Newburyport Herald
appositely observes-" If the Spanish Gov-
ernment are as long in ratifying the Con-
iention, lately concluded by Don Onis, as
they were the treaty of 1 S2 (sixteet








years,) tih-c premnt claannts ot spolt-at'ioc
may bequeath the proceeds to their pos-

General JAMesov arrived in Baltintore
on Saturday last, and was received with
high civic and military honors.

On the late decision of the Supreme
Court, Iiles' Baltimore Register, rej-
marks, that it will afford a golden har-
vest ,to lawyers and shlrl fi'-:'e have:
heard that one gentleman has ordered
writs for the recovery of eighty thousand
dollars, du- ,i, him by persons that failed,
but who are nowt ble to pay."

The prri'tn't.*t of duties on sales at -auc-
-tion received in the State of New-York,
in the ye.r 1188,, was S 179,967:14-near-
ly thel whole of which, of course. was paid
by the auctioneers of the city. The sales
muust have. been iinmense.

Distressing Fires.-Two houses have

the other neaa .Eri-P, Penn. in the first of

The wholesale counterfeiter lately ap-
prehended in Sayannah, is supposed to be
Benjamin Morse, who graduated at Brown
University some years since. He had in

Banks of Kentucky, eorgia, and Rhode-
tsianrl.

By the fpanish Treaty, says the Boston
Centinel, wehave gained an immense ac-
quisition in Pensacola, as a naval .-pos t--
the only one of any importance from the
Chesafieake to Vera Cruz.--Its htirbor is
capable o0fhtoldirig a large fleet;, af: fior.a
dll winds, capable of the best defence, and
having water from 26 to 48 feet. In war
_which may Heaven avert) such a position
must be a point ofterri'ble ann--ance to the
whole Vecst-India trade,; and 'the posses-
sion of it, in peace; cannot but op-,rate
,in-st powerfully to induce the nations
Which own the We it-India islands, to ad-
Inki the United Statis to a fair and recip-
rncal trade ; and to relax or abolish that
,j, i.h, inarr-o sat-c'taracild Colonialp policy,

fe;ct r;cal; -Mcs-".:. Dawsori and M'Neil,
who firti di sovr-' ed this monster of the
