FRIDAY, JANUARY 2.
The charming weather of yesterday
contributed to enliven the reciprocal sa-
lutations of kindness and good wishes
which are customary at every return of
New Year's Day.
The President's House, for the first
time since its re-asdification, was thrown
open for the general reception of visitors.
It was thronged, from 12 to 3 o'clock, by
an unusually large concourse of gentle-
men and ladies; among whom were to
be found the Senators, Representatives,
Heads of Departments,Foreign Minister',
and many of our distinguished citizens,
residents, and strangers. It was gratify-
ing to be able once more to salute the
President of the United States with the
compliments of the season, in his appro-
priate residence ; and the continuance of
this truly Republican custom has given,
as far as we have heard, very general sa-
The Marine Corps turned out on the
occasion, and made a line appearance.

The new ProN isional Legislature of the
Florid'as, assembled at Amelia-Island on
the 1st instant, and after being sworn
faithfully to discharge the duties for which
they were elected,-procceded to ballot fur
a President ; when the choice fell upon
Colonel Iinwi ', who accepted the appoint-
ment. A weekly newspaper, entitled the
"-Telegraph of the Floridas," has been
established at Amelia Island, for the pur-
pose of giving publicity to the Acts of the
Provisional Legislature,arid to.such other
information as may be interesting and
important to the welfare of the people
in that quarter.

some time since, as an instance of the
healthy condition of our soldiers in this
2d military department, that out of ;oni
thousa,.d and nineteen men distributed in
the different forts.along our coast from
Castine to New London, only ONE had di-
ed in the course of three months. This
was incorrect. The fact is only one has
died of that n-umber'in six months;
and that one was of a lingering consump-

paralleled in any country.-FYankee.
NASHVILLE, DEC. 15.
We learn it is understood by letters re-
ceived from the lower country, tnat two
men named Bradley and Nolen, and for-
merly inhabitants of this state, have been
murdered ily negroes on board the boat in
which they intended conveying them to
an ignominious market. It is said several
of the negroes were FlhEE, and resided
on the western shore of the Chesapeake
Bay-were decoyed on board some vessel,
where they were immediately ironed, and
brought to the Westero Country. .[They
embarked for U cleans a few miles below-
Nasiiville, and on their passage commit-
ted the murder.
The civil authority in the town of Mid-
dletown, in the State of Connecticut, in,
pursuance of power granted by the le
gislature of that state, have employed Dr.
Sylvanus Fansher to vaccinate ail the in-
habitants who- have not already had the
sinall-pox or kine-pox. It is stated in
the Middletown paper, that of more than
forty thousand fier ons whom Dr. Fan-
slier has innoculated. not one has died. It
is also mentioned, that a single case.of
small-pox, which has occurred at Mid-
dletowsi within two years, caused, in its
consequences, an expense 'of three hun-
dred dollars-a sun, sufficient to pay tor
the vaccination, and attention, o/' nearly.

Accidcnt.-We learn from Doctor
Thompson, who arrived in, town this
morning from Elizabethtown, that .the
Post Coach from DIew-York, with the
Hon. Samuel W. Dana and a Mr. Lyon,
passengers, drove uplast evening to the
public house in Elivabethtown, where it
is accustomed to stop and the driver af-
ter throwing the reins round the post of
the carriage, jumnpec off his seat. At
that instant the horses took a start and
off they went at full speed. Mr. Dana
made his escape* through the Post Coach
door window, and in the fall broke his
leg, a little above the ancle, in a most
shocking manner. The broken bones
forced their way entirely through the
skin. Mr.-Lyon,-oe.of..the proprietors
of the Post Coach, who retn-tined in-th-.
carriage, succeeded i climbing through
one of the windows ch to the top of it,
descended down in the driver's seat,
seized the reins, and Stopped the horses.
Doctor Thompson assisted in setting M r.

were received, one bl Doctor Post, the
other by Doctor Osbarn, calling them to

American Quarterly Review.
STNDER the above title .he subscriber offers,
U. to the enlightened citizens of the United
States, proposals for printing a new work at the
City of Washington. It will issue fioni the press
in numbers ; each nouiber to appear at the end
of three months: and it will contain, in foui
numbers, a sufficient quantity of inau.er to make
two semi-annual volumnies of five hundred pages
The price will be five dollars a year, payable
on the delivery of the third number. '1 ie type
will be good, and the size of the page octavo .
The complexion of the work will be-Political
and Literary. It will contain original notices of
events, both Foreign and Domestic; antd ori-
ginal Reviews of American and European pro-
ductions of Literature and Science:
Two leading considerations have produced a
strong conviction of .the propriety, and, indeed,
of the necessity, of this undertaking. 1. The
mind of man is so constructed that he. must
either give to, or receive from, tnose with whom
he communicates, the.Law' of Opinion, which
constitutes the rule of human action; and the
incidents of every day unequivocally demon-
strate, that in literature, and even in politics,
the citizens of the United States are, with re-
spect to Eurcipe, and particularly with regard
to Great Britain, more in the habit of receiving
* an of giving this law On this point it is only
necessary to refer to the fact of the republica-
tion, in this country, with a large share of pub-
lic patronage, of the Edinburgh and London
Quarterly Reviews. 2. A community which re.
ceives its intellectual impressions from a foreign
people, is, to the extent of thise impressions,
subordinate to that people.
It % l,110i .,e denied that there are, in the
United 'it.r,, several political aud literary
works of merit: but, being published in cities
or towns not bearing a JVatiaoal character, they
carryn-with tbthem, at home and abroad, an ide
of locality wlirc-renders thernineflicient for
the attaiunent of the object contempiiited by
the present proposal. The pride, the prosperi-
ty, of America, are interested in reacting intel-
lectually upon Europe; and the most suitable
point from which that reaction can proceed is
the Metropolis of the Union. Mind, as well as
manufactures, in the United States, has been
too long and too entirely dependent on the Eu-
ropean section of the globe. It is, in the one
case as well as in the other, our duty to endea-
vor to extricate ourselves from so degrading a
situation. We have among us rich faculties ol
intellect, and all they require is a vigorous cul-

NUMBER of Freach ermig ants, who have
not been themselves practical farmers,
are desirous to share with good honest ftami-
lies a portion ol their grants, in consideration
of the experience and capacity of persons who
have been habituated to agriculture. As eve-
--y kind .f farming, the cultivation of cotton,
sugar, maize, wheat, pl'tatoes and grain, and
'egettibles of every kind, will, of necessity, be
carried on in the settlement, as well as ihose
of the vine and olive, persons who may .be ac-
customed to any will be acceptable; and for
this purpose ONE HUNDRED FAMILIES of
persons accustomed to farming business, w;Il

of ground, in fee simple forever, and without
one dob!ar cost, only on the condition of the

land by any husbandry that may be. mat Sc-
ceptabie to the settler.
These faims will be laid out on the grantof
Congress to the French emigrants, among the
new settlements on the Tombigby, in the Ala.
bama Territory; the.richness of tI-e soil, and
the salubrity of.the climate are squal to any
