the functions of-the 14th Council .Nxll .3.. ,
as well as my official duties as Mayor of tuins
Corporation ; and having determined, from
several considerations, not to be a candidate for
the Mayoralty at the ensuing' election, I cannot
forbear expressing to you, and through you to
my fellow-citizens of this corporation, the
strong sense of gratitude I feel for thie repeated
proofs they have given of the high confidence
reposed in me, by electing me four years' suc-
cessively to the office of Chief Magistrate of
this city.
The obligation thus repeatedly conferred onu
me, by the citizens of Washington, has made
too deep.an impression ever to be effaced.
When I first entered on the discharge of the
duties of .he station, we had just commenced a
serious war with a powerful nation; the times
were difficult; two years the enemy directed
much of his force against this city, ard its vi-
cinity; during which period many new duties
devolved on me. My fellow-citizens here can
best attest how I performed my part ; indeedI 1
may say, they have approved my conduct, by
two subsequent elections.
During the period of the war, this city may

provements were made, and but little business
done : But in this time of general suspension
of business and improvement, the American
people spread their renown in every part of the
globe, arid achieved a second glorious indepen-
Peace being restored, our city is prosperous ;
improvements are rapidly advancing ; our po-
pulation is increasing fast, by the acquisition
of many wealthy citizens, valuable artizans, &c.
Permit me then, in taking leave of you, from
whom, as well as your predecessors, I have re-
ceived every aid, to congratulate you onu our
present happy and prosperous situation. Con-
scious I am, that I have done all in-my power,
with my scanty means, fob- the best interest of
tie metropolis ; a retrospect will shew that
much good has been done, yet I know that
much remains to be done.
I avail myself of this opportunity, on retiring
from office, to assure you and your constituents
that my best wishes attend you and them, for
your and their present and feature, happiness
and prosperity ; and towards the attainment of
those blessings, I shall always be ready, with
nmy feeble powers, most cordially to co-operate.
I beg leave to tender you, and my fellowciti-
zens of Washington, my most respectful re-

An anonymous correspondent from
the interior of New-York, signing him-
self NVobody, writes to us in an indignant
strain respecting a few innocent remarks
of ours, founded on such information as
we had respecting the nomination of Mr:.
CLINTON as the Republican Candidate
for Governor. The controversy among.
the republicans of that state, he says, is

far from terminated." How that may
be, we know not. It is cer-ain that he
who has written to us, has not entered
into the covenant of peace, as-.tie read r
will believe when lie peruses the follow-
ing conclludinig remarks :

IHAVING noticed in your paper n adver-
ti,:;iement of ir Tyler's, fur teaching writing in
a few lessons, and seeing so many of the most
respectable citizens in this city, Georgetown,
New-York, and various parLit of the U. States,
recommendiiig him so highly, I was induced to
call on him, and examine Ilis specimens of wri-
ting, and method of teaching, and am fully con-
vinced that anyi person of commoin capacity,
with strict attention, may learn to write a hand-
some hand in the time stated by AMr. Tyler.
Mir. Tyler's eulogy to the mtnliry of the il!
lustrious Washingtona exceeds any wr'itin I
have ever witnessed, or conceived .'tuld be xe-
cuted with the--pen. The 'art of penmnain'ip
was never devoted to a more noble and patricic
employment, ani for de'Iign and. eseeiron, I
presume to say, tIe eulogy ias neV.iCr r-Xaxtled.'
it reflects the iglest praise to the artist, and
is a just and laudable tribute to the memory of
thie father oi our country. I would recoinmnlund
to those who are pleased with the fine arts; to
call and examine it; and: many' other masterly
speciliiens of his skill. Those exhibited by Mr.
Tyler of the improvement of his pupils, in the
short time of three or four weeks, are really
surprising; some of them written by persons
,ly fi'el n lt e or sixteen vears of r9-eo, W'hif-h "n.
experienced master x..,l ,c p .... .. .,. n
ledge. '
As every art is 'torfe or less valuable in pro-
portion to its extensive usefulness, so the art of
writing claims our regard; it being one of the.
greatest blessing's man can enjoy, aind every at-
tempt to improve or bring it nearer to perfec-
tion, is entitled to public encouragement
,' Tis to the pen and !press we mortals owe
All we believe, and almost all we know;
Arts, :ist'ry, laws, we purchase with a look
And keep like fate, all nature in a book."
To conclude my remarks-I cannot but ex-
press my admiration of Mr. Ty'yer's system, and
success in teaching, and sincerely trust he may
meet with that encouragement, from the en-
!ightened citizens of the metropolis and vicinm-
ty, which he so justly merits. Those who feel
disposed to call at his rooms, will be highly gra-
tified, and satisfied that but poor justice carn be
done to Mr. Tyler's talentsin a communication.

Extract of a letter from a gentleman to
his brother in this town,, dated Shelby-
xville, en. April 5,.1817. .

this ;.but I musiinform you that imnme-
diately after I wrote to you from this state
last May, I joined a company of horse-
men for the purpose of attaching our'-
selves to the patriot service in East Flori-
da ; we marched immediately to St. Au-
gustine and there learned that, there vas
no main body of patriots existing, they
had all dispersed ; a few had gone to St.
Antonio to join Gen. Toledo, who it was
said had left New-Orleans,, for that place.
Our little party, consisting of about forty-
five, agreed to follow their example, and
in our way thither we fell in with about
two hundred royalists who were scouring
the country. We were soon surround
ed and forced to fight or surrender ; we
immediately engaged and after having
twenty-five of our party killed, the rest
of us beipg every man wounded, were
rushed upon, seized and bound fast and
carried to the governor, who without he-
sitation sentenced us to the mines for life.
The mines in tie Floridas were so full of
Americans, that our party, then reduced
to sixteen, (Tour having died of their
wounds) was ordered with about.fifty
more to be sent to the king's mines in
South America. In crossing the Isthmus
however, four of us escaped by swimming
to the British brig Syphax, whose cap-
tain very generously treated us until we
fell in with a patriot privateer, which I
went on board of and remained until the
4th of March, when I landed at Savannah
ana came immediately to this state.

We understand that a man was shot
last week at Hoboken; the circumstances,
as near as we have heard, was as follows :
two fishermen in that place owned sep-
arate nets ; one had been in the habit of
going earlier than usual and raising his
neighbour's. The person who had been
pilfered, having suspicions of the other's
honesty, placed himself in a convenient
place with a loaded musket. At the ac
customer hour, a boat appeared, when the
person on watch discharged his gun ; 'the
bullet entering the body of the other,
he died in about 4 hours afterwards.

Melancholy Event.-A Sealing schr,
belonging to Mr. Thomas Danson, of
Harbour Grace, was blowri up a lew days
since off Cape St. Francis, by which
accident most of the crew were killed, six
of whom were brought to Harbour Grace
by another schr. and buried, two others
were blown to atoms, the Captain, Jolin
Newall, died the day he was landed ; the
remainder of the crew are dreadfully
wounded; wve are not in possession of
further pa'tiulark.

Though the causes should really be in
some temporary deviation, of nature from
its customary c',urnrie, they will always
trace them if pos ,le.to something hu
inan. Of-the faiineswhich have occa.

of Europe, the wise ones have ascrioedl
*aine out of ten to the imptolicy or the
wickedness of theirgovertinicnts when
they had.only to toot to the weather for

at another's joy, "gladly traces any casu-
al evil to the prosperity of an individual
who happens to be exclusively honored
and enriched by eliterprize, genius and
industry exercised out of the ordinary
track of human e 4rtioni. In this view
the steam boat ma] be regarded by some

will demand some iroinger' evidence than
the opinion of 'experienced fishermen of
observation' before sentence of death be
passed upon this eye sore the steam boat.
They will ask,firsi, whether the tempe-
rature of thetwo last seasons did not ma-
terially .differ from former, ones ?-ne.t,
whether the steam boat has uniformly
produced this terrible effect upon the fish
-in ail the waters where it is used ?-
Thirdly, whether failures in the take of
fish, not for one or two seasons, but for
several years, successively, have not ta-
ken place in all periodical fisheries ?--
Fourthly, whether, if the shad have been
frightened,there are'not other bugaboos to
which to ascribe it.? And !as ly, wh.e
other, even supposing that to be the cause,
such a valuable public benefit as the steam
boat ought to be sacrificed to the supposed
more or-ees in the quantity of shad?
To the first of these questions I answer
that tihe weather of the last spring and of
this have been- uncommonly subject to
unseasonable chillsiwhichin all countries
affect or rather control the movements of
fish ; a proof of which appears in the fact
that for the-short space during which in
both years the weather was duly warm,
there was a very great take of fish. In
certain turns of weather, nay in certain
changes of the wiijd, skilful fishermen
are so entirely hopeless of catching any
that they will not attempt it-they put upi
their nets and their tackle and stay at
home,-Do we not;know that the cold of
the last season wasiso extraordinary as to
blast the prospects of the husbandman .?
and how much warmer is this ?-In this
season the setting-in of the (cold was di-
rectly followed by ;the departure of the
fish. i
STo the next question I answer that
many steam boats have been plying in
the Delaware from Philadelphia up the
.riverand down it for six or seven years-
nay running acrossi it many times every
day-and though stme of the finest shad
fisheries in the country are close to Phi
ladelphia, and withpa musket shot dis
tance ofthe place here those turbulent
boats lie, no coniplaint has ever been
made of the kind preferred by our Poto .
mac fishermen, ltlt perhaps our more
southern shad havy more delicate ears,;
or are more nervous and timid than their
coarse brethren of'the Delaware.-I be-
lieve the same ma be said of North Riv-
er and New York 'aters generally.
For an answer t1 the third question I
refer the reader to *nderson's account of
the Hebrides and t! every good history
of fisheries. Herriis, which in their na-
ture and habits terl much resemble the i
shad, for successive years will fill whole t
ports and rivers in such c i) pact bulk in
Scotland and Irelaijd, that a poie cannot
be put down without touching them; yet

Parties.-Good men have long regret-
ted the embittering and demoralizing con-
sequences of party spirit. Among the
most injurious of its evil effects, has been
the estrangement of worthy men from ecrn
o-her, and the herding together of all
kinds of men upon equal terms. Men
whose habits, opinions and dispositions of
mind, are all fitted to make them friends,
are kept at continual variance, by taking
different sides in politics; while men,
n every trait of character as dissimilar
as light and darkness, are bound together,
in an unnatural and discordant union, by
:he mere force of party attachments.-
Worthy and capable men are cast into ob-
scurity, whilst knaves andfools are pushed

The revolutionary struggles of thli
people of this now interesting portion o
the earth, must be contemplated with ar
anxious eye by every philanthropist and
friend to the improvement of the species
The mixed character of the population
of South America must, however, fill
with considerable distrust the mind of thit
sanguine theorist or speculator, who au
gurs the establishment of a number ol
free and weil constituted Republics in their
place of the colonies of a lazy and effem-
inate Monarchy. WIe are very mucli
afraid that the people of those provinces
are not duly prepared for the enjoyment
of that great boon and blessing-well ,re-
gulated freedom. Banishing from view
the discordant materials out of which
they are yet to erect their structure or
structures of freedom. there appears to
be no leading minds among them, to guide
and enlighten public opinion ; no habits
of free discussion ; no systematic and
well digested plan of all that has yet oc-
curred in their career of emancipation.
Those who predict similar results, from
the analogy of the American revolution,
reason entirely, we think, on false and in-
applicable data.
The revolution in this country wore
one uniform character from its com-
mencement to its consummation; and
was brought about gradually by causes of
a very general operation. It will be re
collected, first, that many of our ances-
tors emigrated to these shores, from the
persecution which their fearless attach-
ment to the great principles of religious
freedom, brought upon them in many
parts of Europe : and those who have,
from history, observed how formidable
an ally religious is to civil liberty, will
be -at.no loss to comprehend how irmch of
our success in establishing a free and well
ordered government, is to be attributed
to this early connexion.
In the seco',-1 place, a great part of our
most enlightened countrymen, who took
so considerable a share in the important
discussions then carried on, were already
trained, by the habits of their profession
and the books they read, for the impor-
tant part they subsequently acted on the
theatre of American affairs. They were
professional lawyers-.-and when called
out to a trial of their mental energies,
by the interesting crisis, evinced full as
much civil wisdom as ever was exhibited
by statesmen, placed in similar circum-
stances. The acuteness and dialectic
skill, and quickness of perception to right
and wrong, peculiar to the vocation of the
advocate, were eminently favorable to the
great interests of freedom, then at issue ;
whilst the light evolved during the pro-
gress of those high political disputes,
made the transition from colonial depen-
dance to self government, all over these
state,-% natural and easy. The Provincial
Assemblies, also, as w"ll aattI"' trrta-uf-
Law, presented admirable nurseries and
schools of freedom.
The minds of much the larger part of
our countrymen of that period were thus
prepared, by regular gradation, for the
train of important transactions that ensu-
ed. Their leaders had served an ap-
prenticeship to Freedom,and evinced, by
their wise moderation and consummate
skill in politics, that they were not only
fit teachers of its,doctrines, but that they
understood their practical application full
as well. There was no false or absurd
reasoning in their attempts to adjust, by
their pens, the limits between political
authority and obedience; or very little
rash-and visionary theory, in ail their
metaphysics on the subject of govern-
ment., In their discussions and enquiries,
connected with this great theme, in Con-
vention, they presented a body of legisla-
tors unrivalled for calmness and sober-
ness of thinking, at any era of the world.
The American Revolution, in fact, exhi-'
bited in none of its periods, the symptoms
and -characteristics of a -great. political.
convulsion. No general atrocities stain

the history of this great achievement-
nor violent proscriptions occurred to
weaken its moral effect- All this, must,
therefore, have been owing to the gradual
preparation by which it was wrought-to
the regularity with which the different
stages of the great event succeeded to
each other.
But, in the last place, our population
was nearly unanimous as to the necessity
of a separation from the Mother Coun-
try. The smallness of the riumbers of
such as were desirous of preserving the
ancient ties of connection, compared to
those .who wished them severed, was
strikingly seen during the whole period
of the conflict. The internal opposition
to the ambitious scheme of revolutionists,
was, therefore, too feeble to long protract
its accomplishment, or to break that uni-
ty of council and singular perservance of
effort, which place our leaders, both civil
and military, in thle true road to success,
and on the proudest heights of individual
Now, we apprehend that the oppress
ed and brave population of the revolution-
ized portion of South America cannot be
said to exhibit a parallel case in any of
the above circumstances : And we have
still too little experience of revolutions
(in spite of the tremendous lessons read to
us on this subject by the recent history
of'Ertope) to predict with safety the ac-
tual results in the instance before us. Let
the consequences, however, be what
they may, any thing short of anarchy
must be an improvement of their
condition. There must be something
gained, at least, to freedom-some light

elicited-some traits of courage and
nobleness of nature, or of daring pa-

triotism, worthy of being preserved in
the page of history, and held out for
imitation to those who may hereafter
gallantly risk their lives for so great a
. stake as independence.
f Thedisenthralment of any considerable
number of the species must be attended
I with liberal effects. There is always a
* great share of mental energy released,
I and set into activity by revolution. The
Saugitation with which it is accompanied
is favourable to the development of
whatever latent spirit or enterprise there
is in the human character, and which
may have been encumbered and stifled
by despotical institutions. The genius of
man measures a rapid and brilliant career
in this fresh fiela of improvement. Arts,
t letters, social virtues-all feel the fer:i-
lizing influence. The enjoyments of the
sp ~cies multiply, in proportion to the en-
largement of the sphere of human en-
terprize and usefulness. We contrast
with peculiar delight the activity and
elevation of mind that distinguish the
* citizens of a free state, with that torpor
or inertness of the faculties, both mental
and bodily. which mark the victims and
slaves of despotism.

Progress of the Sciences.-It is well
known that the deeper we penetrate into
the earth, the greater is the warmth. At
Frieberg, they pretend to have calculated
that this increase of warmth amounts to
one degh-ec of the thermometer for 150
feet; from which it is inferred, that at the
depth of 0so German, (225 English) miles
iron must melt and the interior of the
earth be a. sea of liquid fire.
New Propierties of Light.-Dr. Brew-
ster's discovery, that a plate of unequal'
temperature has different local powers
of polarization,'seems to prQve.:,4_ close
connection between the newly' inwestigat.-
ed,properties of light and those of mag-
netism. This is indeed his own opinion,
and he states that the effec's of his ex-
periments are results to which we can
find nothing analogous, but in the per
plexing phenomena of ofmagnetical and
electrical polarity."
Electrical Tor/iedo.-Some very curi-
ous discoveries, highly interesting to the
lovers of Natural History, have recently:
been communicated to the Royal Socie-
ty, by Mr. Todd) a medical gentleman,
as the result of numerous experiments
on that wonder of nature, the Torpedo, or
Electrical Fish. Mr. Todd observes,
that the shocks received from the animal
were never sensible above !he shoulder,
and seldom above the elbow joint : the
intensity, also, of the shock bore noe rela-
tion to the size of the fish, but an evident
relation to its liveliness, and vice versa.
The shock did not always follow the
touch; but required a degree of irritation,
such as pressing, pricking, or squeezing
the animal; whilst not unfrequently ani
mals to appearance perfectly vivacious,
suffered this igie iI A: v vaco .
g any stioi- whatever. But the most
curious fact is, that, when caught by the
hand, they sometimes writhed and twist-
ed about, endeavoring to extricate them-
selves by muscular exertion; and did not,
until they found these means unavailing,
attempt the exercise of their electrical
powers: though in many instances they
had recourse to that power in the first
moment ofcoercion. It was also ascer-
tained by repeated experiments, putting
two aniimals of equally apparent health
into vessels of water, drawing successive
shocks from one, and suffering the other
to remain quiescent, that the death of the
animal was hastened by the abstraction of
its electric fluid I
Botanical effects of Climate.--It is a
newly established fact in Natural History,
deserving the attention of ornamental Bo-
tanists, that a much greater proportion of
the various species of the botanical divi.
sion of nature, is fitted for the endurance
of extreme heat than of violent cold. Re-
cent writers have drawn this observation
from an accurate survey of vegetation
through its distinct gradations frotn there
polar towards the equatorial regions,
marking, in each stage,, the progressive
course. The only exception to the gene-
ral rule is that of the Lichens, which are
to be found in all climates, and alike un
assailable' by the extremes of each. It is
evident from this, that the varieties of in-
digenous plants increase in proportion-
as we approach the equator : for, altho'
in landsnearest to the pole, Spilzbergen
and Greenland, the number of species do
not exceed 30, yet they increase gradu-
ally thus-Lapland, 534-Iceland, s53-
Sweden, 1300-Centre of Europe, 2000-
Piedmont. 2800-and 4000 in Jamaica.
Thisis an increasing ratio which can-
not be the effect ofchance, and is worthy
botanical consideration. But it must be
remembered that altitude produces a
greater change than latitude; since it has
been clearly ascertained that four or five
thousand yards in elevation in the hottest
parts of the globe, produce greater
changes in temperature than five thou-
sand miles in.distance from the equator.
It is also a curious fact, as ascertained
by Humboldt, that in-South. America,
plants will grow at a height of 1800 yards
above that elevation, where on the Alps
and Pyrenees vegetation ceases.

of England, is of serious importance.

volutionary progress in South America,
the Court of Brazils has actually avowed
an attack onI Monte Video, and that the
evident design of the king of Portugal is
to spread hisiauthority over the whole of
the Spanish provinces on that continent,
either by conquest or negocietion with
the independents. The king of Spain,
therefore, calls on the allied sovereigns to
protect him in this emergency, as not-
withstanding the recent aliairce hy mar-
riage, the Portuguese aggressions go on,
and the Spanish court must, in its own
defence, march an army into Portugal,
by which an European war would be re-
kindled, if succor byhis brother over

Under these circumstances, an offer
has been made by the court of Madria to
allow a certain limited trade to the South
American ports, on the payment of stipu-
lated duties, provided that early and ef
fectual aid shall be rendered to what is
called the rebellion, and check the Bra-,

for England to interfere, it is urged, that
piracy is now organized on so regular a

under a variety of flags, that the trade of

half past 10 o'clock, a distressing fire
broke out at a tenement occupied by Jo-
seph Cressy, near the road leading to
Best's farm, and notwithstanding the ear-
ly attendance and spirited exertions of the
inhabitants, three buildings were totally
destroyed before the flames were got un-

Matthew Grisdale, to whom the proper-

children and servant girl, perished in the
flames ; the bodies, with the exception
of one child, were dug out of the ruins
yesterday morning, shockingly mutilated.
It appears they had retired early to rest,
and were not awakened until the lower
part of the house was in flames ; when
Mr. Cressy forced his way through a win-
dow, by which he was much injured. His
family endeavored to follow, but perished
in the attempt-when found, the mo

,The spirit of liberality in regard to
internal improvement which character-
ized the proceedings of the Legislature
of North-Carolina at its last Session,
is well known to our readers. A-
mong other measures was the .appoint-
ment of a Board of Commissioners to ex-
plore the coast of North-Carolina, with a
view to the practicability of deepening the
entrance into Roarioake river, which is
nearly choked up with sand externally,
supposed to be thrown up by the current
of the Gulph Stream.
One of the'Commissioners (Blake Ba-
ker, Esq.) who has recently visited the
Northern states, has succeeded in obtain-
ing a competentgenrtleman(Capt. Clarke,
late of the Army) to make a preparatory
topographical survey. He has been for-
tunate enough also to obtain, by consent
of the Executive, the valuable aid of Gen.
SWIFT, of the corps of Engineers, with
the prospect of other assistance, to make
a second and final survey of this coast, of
which we know little at present, except
fo.r its dangers to mariners sailifig c6ast-
The practicability of the design is ve-
ry doubtful, but it is considered important
to test it, that, in the event of its proving
hopeless, the people dwelling on the fer-
tile borders of the Roanoake may turn
their undivided attention to the canal na-
vigation to Norfolk.

From the account I saw in your pa-
per the other day, respecting the Law-
ler or Jones' white wheat,I am very much
pleased to observe to you, for the benefit
of the farmers of this country in general,
that the wheat called Jones'sor Lawler's,
is nothing else than wheat imported from
Ireland by some emigrant, and contains
that quality, from its native soil, of: resist-
ing the depredations of the fly or worm.
The most useful and best discoveries have
appeared by mere accident; and if the
origin of this Lawler wheat could be as-
certained, it would be found to be im-
ported as I have said; for there is a pe-
culiarity in the soil and air of Ireland, not
found even in England, its neighboring
isle. That the poisonous reptile is not
foundon the island is a fact beyond doubt,
-and even when brought there for experi-
ment they do not and cannot exist on the
land. Of this peculiar quality of the soil
in which they are raised, potatoes and all
vegetables grownon the lana must imbibe
a portion. The farmer would do well to
procure a small portion of wheat seed
from that country, and in a year or two
his stock of seed would be sulliciently in-
creased for his general use.

Of the settled and inveterate hostility
of the Florida Indians against the citizens
of this state, there is d,.ily confirmation.
Jn reply to a late communication on this
subject from the executive of Georgia.
Gen. Gaines observes, that although the
principal part of the force under his com-
mand has been particularly designated,
for the present, to the section of country
where he is, (the eastern frontier of the
Mississippi territory) he anticipates the
early receipt of an order to check the de-
predations of the savages, and effectually
subdue them. Should it be necessary to
pursue them to their towns, a requisition
will be made on this state for two batta-
lions of infantry, to co-operate with the
regular troops. Accompanying the let-
ter of Gen.Gaines was one from the Bri-
tish agent, who, doubtless, possesses the
talent, if not the inclination, to foment a
spirit of discord among the Indians, that
will tend to their destruction. The fol-
lowing is an extract-it will speak for it-

enquire of you, why American settlers
are descending the Catahouchie, driving
the poor Indian from his habitation, and
taking possession of his home and his
cultivated fields.
'1 Without authority, I can claim no-
thing of you; but a humane and philan-
thropic principle guiding me, I hope the
same will influence you-and if such is
really the case, and that the line marked
out by the treaty of peace between Great
Britain and the United States, respecting
the Indian nations, has been infringed by-
any of the citizens of the latter, that you
will represent to them their improper
conduct, and prevent its continuance.
I I have in my possession a letter re-
ceived from the Governor of New Provi-
dence, addressed to him by his Britannic
Majesty's chief secretary of state, inform-
ing him of the orders given to the British
ambassador at Washington, to watch over
the interests of the Indian nations, and
see that their rights are faithfully attend-
ed to, and protected agreeably to the
treaty of peace made between the Britishl
and the Americans.
"I am in hopes that ere this, there is
arrived at New Providence a person from
Great Britain,, with authority to act as
agent for the Indian nations; and if so, it
will devolve upon him to see that the
boundary lines, as marked out by the
treaty, are not infringed."

frigate Eurydice and a gun brig ariieivel
there 1st instant from Martinique.
Accounts by this vessel state that there
are a number of American and British
seamen now in prison at Havana, taken
on board Carthagenian privateers: and a-
bout the first of this month one of the
Consulado fleet, formerly the Chasseur
brig, sunk a small vessel of the Patriots
the whole crew being killed or drowned
except 18 ; these were bought to Hava-
na and thrown into prison, where it was
supposed they would perish from want.
Captain Gore, of the British government
brig Saracen, had applied to the Spanish
authorities for the release of certain Bri-
tish subjects confined in prison, but could
not obtain their liberation.

Melancholy Accident.-On Saturday
last, Mr. Jonathan Philips, John Minard,
and William Mullins, left this for-Broad
Cove, 'in a whale-boat; in passing a shoal
off Andrews's head, a sea upsdt the boat.
and those unfortunate men were drowned;
the boat, as is supposed, sunk, being bal-
lasted,and not being yet found; all three
of the men were found on the beach this
morning, where a Coroner's inquest
was taken, and in the evening they were
conveyed to town. This is a most dis-
tressing event to their friends-W. Mul-
lins has left a wife (at .the point of death,)
and ten children ; J. Philips, a wife and
seven children. Thus was utene moment
three widows and 19 fatherless children
left to lament their untimely loss, and the
town three useful inhabitants.
On Saturday morning the schr. Dol-
phin, J. Foster, from Halifax for Port-
midway, being" off Cross Island, fell in
with a boat bottom up, which they right-
ed and towed into Portmidway ; the boat
is about 20 feet keel, apparently built this
spring, the step of the fore-mast had giv-
en away and the mast had gone through
her bows. The only articles found in her,
were a few new pipes and some tobacco,
in the after locker. Mr. Foster expects
the boat was from Halifax, and that the
people must have perished.

In S.lisbury, Conn. on the 5th instant, Mr.
TlIzekiah C. Lee, aged 33, son of Deacon Milo
Lee. On the morning of the 5th the deceased,
in company with a lad, went with his waggon
and horses to the mountain in the nortii west
part of the town, and was found on the 6th, ly-
imin near his horses, dead. The waggon was
torn in pieces, and the'boy was found near hin,
and alive, although nearly insensible, and las
not since been able to give any particular ac-
count of the afflicting accident. The boy is ir
a fair way of recovery. The deceased has left
a widow and four small children to lament his
untimely and distressing death.

The sensaionsexcited by Mr.BRitoGH-

most lively nature, both among Mer
chants and Manufac turers, and we cannot
doubt, that when it has made its way to
the Diitricts, the hardships and suff'er-
ings of which:were so warmly and faith-
fully delineated, corresponding elff-cts
will be there equally produced. Or. all
hands it is acknowl, dged, that so mas-

play of interesting and substantial facts

Thii was comsfesed by practical men,who

from the answers made, in which .iot a

If .\Ministers were ea-rnestly resolved
to relieve the n-iseries by. which all class

they would notilose sight of the immense
opening of the New World, to which al-

been forestalled, supplanted, and deprived
of the good will of a country capable o[
consuming mort goods than all Europe

When the: ultra-marine Provinces be-

to a dilemma that precluded the possibi-
lity of hesitation. Under a deep aind
poignant ;,'ite .of national wrongs, they
resorted to. the only alternative left them.
Thehi'present resistance, therefore, can-
not be .called an aggression, since it
must raiier be termed the result of
h.:ng-suffering and nLcessary self-defence.
Hence they will stand acquitted before
Ideave.n. and the world, anid'the mnu.rders,
ravages, and conflagrations, with which
they purchase a just but dear-bought in-
dependence,or rather freedom from slave
ry and oppression, will not fall on their
heads, biat on those of their oppressors.
To us they opened their ports ; to us they
appealed from a variety 'of motives, and,
as a return, we insulted them. by stipulat-
ing, in our treaty with FERtDINAND, that
it was our wish they should return to
their allegiance," or, in other words, that
they should suffer thelnquisition, i. torture,
and Slave Trade, to be re-established a

scend to a rank little above the brutes of
the forest.
