tration of AAMrs-with the Barbary Powers,
in the administration of- JrrtEsoN--and witlh
Great-Britain in the administration of MAIU-
sos, have, in some measure, cast into oblivi-
ous shade the no less brilliant, and far more
-wondeiful achievements of the ocean warriors
in the war of the revolution. To cherfsh and
venerate the memories of these immortal cham-
pions of American Independence, is the duty,.
and ought to constitute the pleasure of the
risen and rising generation of Americans. In
the full fruition of the unequalled blessings
they aided in acquiring for no, forgetfulness of
their gigantic labours, would be a species of
ingratitude that Would disgrace the fallen an-
gels. Although we cannot now expect minute
biographies of the many sleeping heroes, who
pouredl out the rich trib'.te of their veins for
a country they loved and served better than
they did themselves,yet from careful research-
es, the author of the proposed publication has
gathered a mass of materials which he found
scattered in a vast variety of places. From
these lie hopes to be enabled to rescue from
oblivion the memories of some of the exalted.
Champions of Amer;can Freedon. The writ-
or hopes to escape tlhe imputation of vanity,

cute the present undertaking, from the favor-
