There was likewise raised on half

permit us to" present ihe whole to
the view of our readers we must con.;
dense them in a more compact form,
and present them as a summary or
syllabus. .
We fliid that the subject of Ame.
lia Island has been brought up be-
fore Congress.; lMr. Rhea offered a
resolution calling for information
from tie P'resident relative to thie
affairs of Amelia Islhaidana Galve*.
(on, together iiifih his "reapins in-
ducing him. to is'iue orders to sup-
press the said establishmentss"
Mr. Forsyth moved to strike out
the last clause, as the executive had
avowed his ireasons in his Messrge,
for the ieiisiures adopted in relation
to those places, and calling uport
him for additional reasons would go
to question the weight and impopr
tance of those already given, he was
satisfied that the conduct of the ex-
ecutive in this instance had beei
correct.,
Mr. H'igh Nelsoni Was favorable
to the resolution, and was persuad-
ed that the President had acted .ith
propriety in ordering these estab-
lishments to be suppressed, and that.
respect to te rrgnts the Spanish
provieces iead the rights of out own
country. lie took an extensive view
of the operations in. that quarter
which he said, was marked by odi-
uus.features, and presented it pres-
ent, the appearance of a horde of
* buccaneers,' bahffitdi.ind pirates.'t
He expressed himself favorable to
the principle of neutrality which we'
have adopted, and favorable to the
cause of emancipation in South' A-
merica...
Mr. Holmes," of Massachusetts,
was'not opposed to the call for in-
formatian, but thought it linnecessa-
ry, as a resolhtiiin which had al-
ready been adopted would embrace
the information required ; and,
therefore, moved, that' the resolu-
tion should lie on the table.
Mr. Nelson objected, on thfe score
of delay. .
. Mr. Robertson, of Louisiana, read
the resolution calling for informa-
tion respecting the state of the
Spanish colonies,' and though it
would be prudent to wait until the
information was obtained, and was7 -
therefore, favouable to the present
resolution, lying on the table.
Mr. Miller, of South Cartolina,
was opposed to. the postponement,
considering that the objects in both
resolutions were distinct.
Mr. Johnson, of Kentucky, was in
favour of the resolution lying on the
table untfl a ieply could be had to
6he resolution first passed.
GeneralHarrison opposed the mo-
tion to lay the resolution on the ta-
ile; stating, that information was
desirable-and he concudred in opin-
ion with the speaker, that our oneas-
ures had borne hard on the colonies.
The question was taken for laying
the resolution on thd table, and lost;
75 voting in favour and 81 against it.
The amendment proposed by Mr.
Forsyth was adopted, and the reso-
ution passed without division.

; .Mr. Rhea, offered for considera-
tion the following reshittion ;
Res'olvcd, That the President be
requested to lay before the iouse of
Representatives any information) hel
may possess, and think proper tb
communicate, relative to the pro-
ceddih, of ertai


mouth of.thec St. Mary's river near
the boundary of the state of (;eorgia,
in the sAmmer of tlhe present year,
and made .an establishment there;
and also 'any information he hath,and
nay think proper to6 communicate,
relative to an establishment made,
;t an earlier period, by persons of'
the same description, in the Gulf of
Mexico, at a place called Galvezton,
within: the limits of the United
States, as we contend, under the
cession of Louisiana; 'together with
the reasons inducing him to issue or-
ders to suppress the said establish-
ments.
Mr. Forsyth moved to strike out
the last clause of the proposed reso-
lution.
Mr. Holmes (of Massachusetts,)
said he should never be opposed to
any call for information on any sub-
ject, when wanted by the House.
But it appeared to him that the call
now proposed was unnecessary,since
the resolution adopted the other day
would embrace the information now
desired. He thought the House
should wait a day or two, to see
whether they wduld not obtain, with-
out any further call, all the infqrma-
non they desired from the Executive.
WVilh this view he moved that the
resolution should lie on the, table.
Thb question to lay the sesolution
on thetable, was then taken.
Against it 1
So the motion was lost.
Mr. Rhea, having accepted Mr.
Forsyth's proposed amendment, as
part of his own motio,--
The main question was taken on
die resolution, and decided in the
affirmative, without a division ; and
u committee ordered to be appoint.

SPl'.I.VISI COLONIES.
The contest between- Spain and
her American colonies (says the
Philddclphia True American,) in-
Tolves many considerations of deli-
cacy ;-at,(1 the people of tihe U. S5
have iad g!-eat (lifficilty in deciding
the poper course to he pursued by
them in relation to their neighbors.
The good wi.sles of the U. S are u-
niversally on the side of the alrm
that strikes fir liberty and national
,independence. The patriots have
only to order their affairs well, andl
they will have no obstrulicions to cx-
pect ftrom us. That we may have
appeared indiifferent to the success
of the revolutionary provinces, has
arisen wh6lly from ite very bad
planner in which their affairs have
ben regulated. If tihe Spoliih col-
onies in the south be dcte lined to
free tliertmelves from the most ty-
ranli.al AInd odious govcrrnicilt in
-' ,l;ui,-, d..,yimust also abandon
their devotiu n to its apostles anti high
priests, both in politics and religion.
Liberty abhors ignorance, hyipoc:isby
arid superstiton.-'l'here can be no
liberty where the 'onscience is fet-
tered by chains and reason denied
the benefit of light. Between the
adoration ofFordinanl and the Pope,
wve fear our !panish neighbors are
doomed to along and rubtful stt-ug
gle. In all their efforts to be eman-
cipated, we should be glad to sec
them regard the liberty of con-
science. Let them, then, embark
with one heart in the cause of free-
dom, abandon all their devotion to
the politics and religion of the moth-
er country, and fight their way to'
the privilege of choosing whom
they shall eave to rule over them in
matters of church and state, If at
terwards they -shall be willing to ac-
knowledge the nfallability of Fcrdi-
najd and th& lope, or choose a form
of govcrnmeo for themelves, and

tates of theit own conscience, they

(Wit of WIashington:
As the people ofthe. Used. Statw.L
naturally feel an interest in the
progress of the improvements of
the Capital of the Union, we have
thought the following 'brief i-e-
marks from the Nei-York Co-
lumbian, might not be altogether
unaCceptable.
The City of fAan IG7VY is de-
iightuilly situated The surround-
ing scenery beautifully picturesque
-thle hills forming an almost per-
fect amphitheatre-the city built on
a plate in the valley below. It now
contains some of the finest private
houses in the United States ; and is
improving with a rapidity unparal-
led-.ts growth, probably, farther
advanced than it would have been
for half a.century, had not the ene-
my liumanely reduced it to a heap
of mn)uldering ruins..
Its destiny, we believe, is n6w fi-
nally4 ettled. From its own ashes
it is ;a rising, ini renewed beauty ; &
the ? ticipationt would not lbe unrea-
sonail e, that ere many years have
tolle I away, it will become the res-
idente of persons of leisure and for
tune.-They will iinatrally be at-
tracted thither,a by the session-s of
pongrets-; by the toMeethigs of the
supreme court, by tie residence of
fortidn ministers, and by all that
fashipnable report, whicAh w usu-
ally te found rin the metropolis of
the itation. The reflection; ala.,
that Its ianprocveiment rv as a favorite
object with the Father oThiis Coun-
try,' cannot faHl to consecrate it in
the heart of every American, and to
afford hiini a melancholy pleasirre

Of the inhabitecits of jWashington,
it may be trsly iaid, that they are
among the most civil and. cou.rteus
in the nation. 1 heir cfibt'ts, at all

only pride appears to be in vicing

It is said i, tile Liverpool Couriemr
6fthe 15th October, that it is stated
from Madrid, that the King of Spain.
in consequence of a loan by the
British government of 400,00W has
agreed to abolish the slave trade.
This is an importaitt ei'ent, it it be
correct as there Vwill then remain.
only one nation in Europe, viz. Por-
tugal, by which that disgraceftil and
human traffic is allowed; and that
one, we have no doubt, will find it
necessary,,in a short time, to follow
the general example. When once
the prohibition shall become univer-
sal, the trade, if attempted, will be
in violation of the law of nations, as
well as nature, and we presume tinl
maritime powers of Christendom
will, by a conventib*l, agtee tb ust
theirnaval forces to purge the world
of the most pirat-cal banditti that ev-
er existed. When the time comes,
that a general warfare shall be wag-
ed v tith slavc-tradcrsrit will become
too hazardous a commerto to be
carried on to any considrirble eu-
tent. Trcat the persons engaged in

If Cong-res repeal taxes, and
make new appropriations, they will
alter the Treasury view of the Fin..
ances.
The repeal of internal taxes will
lessen -the revenue by a large sum
directly-and will lessen the re-
ceipts bn imported Spirits, as less
will ie imported,more being made in
the country. The commutation for
Soldier's bounty land will require o.
considerable sum. The appropria-
tions for internal improvements,will
be a' channel of expense. Other
appropriations appear to be in view.

The London Courier, the most

observes, It is gratifying to be a-

ry fresh account from America af-
fords us reason to believe that the
desire to be on the most friendly
footing with Great Britain, atiriates,
.nore arid pore,; the Councils of the
Amnirican Governnment. Prejudices

Many large stores, dwellitig houses,

escaped the previous trip, were de-
str6oyed by this: It wt.. discovered
at about half past 3' o'coclt, aisl ra-

11 A great part of the western
half of the town, (says the St. Johns
paper) which was contemplated as
a shelter for the distressed at the
'tre of the 7th inst. is lainin ashes,
and many families have to lament,
iand feel the -painful distress, of a
second time being burnt outoftheir
dwellings, in the short space of 14
days. By whant means many ofthenm
will find shelter the approaching
winter, we are at at a loss teconjec-

We understand that Gen. Gaines,

of the Indians on the opposite side,
and received for answer', that he
did not want any talk fromi the Gen.

If proofs of vigorous intellect ii

how much more wonderful are evi-

affectionate. She is much attached
to her infant sister, often passes her
tftad over the .mouth and yes org
ihe child, in border to ascertain irheth-
eor it is crying, and sootheq its little
distresses rtith all the sgiclduity and
success of a talkative.or minusical
nurse. All objects which she cannot
readily handle,she naplies to her lips
and rarely fails objects too large for
examination in this way, she makes
ner finger the interpretersi of its
nature and propTctties,and is seldom
mistaken. She will beat apples or
other frtiit from the tree, and select
the best with as much judgment as
if she possessed the faculty of sight
She often wanders in the field, and
gathers flowers, to which she is di-
rected by the pleasantness of their
odour. Hfer sense of smelling is
remarkably exquisite, and appears
to be an assistant guiide with her
fingers and lips.
