The Contractor's Agent having tiled .to comply
with it;e requisitions et General Gaines,for subsist-
j,g the United States' troops and the Georgia
militia under General -Giasock-aud the co i-
mlanuding General having tobuld it iniyraeticable to
obtain funds without submitting to a discount, unau-
thorised, and as. lie conceives. improper-and- be-
lieving it to be unsafe to discharge any part of theI
'militia, while the frontier settlements of this state
are menaced by the savages, has applied to the Go-
yernor, we undQterstand, for the lo.anoften thousand
dollars, in addition to the sums already advanced,
for the porvihase uof radios and other supplies. It
begins to be time, 'we thilk, ibr'thi-Gouneral GOAv-
been received, to attend to this subject. :1tis enough
ftr Georgia to furnish all the militia, without being
obliged also, to supply the requisite fuids for carry-
ing on the war. General Gaines,- we are inbform-
ed, is fully authorized to follow the hostile lu-
dians over the line, and attack them within Florida,
unless they shelter themselves under a Spanish
.post." '. '
That part of the above paragraph
which relates to the imputed omission of:
the government to furnish funds we notic-
ed in our -last, by stating that ample funds
had been remitted to supply the army
with provisions, transportation, kc. These
of course had not arrived, when the pa-
ragraph in the Journal was penned; on
-Which it may be remarked, hiowevcr,
that the War Department could not know
the deficiency until informed of it, and
thatwhen apprized of it,. provision was
promptly made to meet it, in the manner
!reaoy stated.
That the People of Georgia; should be d
soi severely taxed by requisitions on their
Militia, we are sure ;is a subject of as
much regret to those who administer,
the gov-rnment, as itis to us and to all
*with whom we have conversed on the i
.subject. Bu: it is an evil without .rerne- f
4y, resulting from the geographical po- I
sitio of the state, by which the enemy is ]
brought to its door.. Those militia near-
est to tihetheatre of hostilities became li- i
able to be called out to.aid in terminating.
them ; not however all from Georgia, for '
Tennessee has. with.alacrity: volunteered ,
the. quota which would otherwise, have
been detached from that state. It would
e.. bJe qn deijtajtjllei indeed, that that
force .which is educated and inui d to
war, :and maintained at the public ex-
perise, should have-been exclusively em-
ployed in this service, instead of the hus-
bandaman and the artist being called forth d
from- their peaceful occupations to tra-
verse pathless morasses, and penetrate A
the Indian coverts. But who does riot ,d
see, that,it is impossible, out of a military e
peace establishment so small as that of f
the United States, to concentrate at a t
point in the extreme South, with the nlie-
cessary dispatch, three or four thousand
raen from the extreme north, fiom Peon- ,
Tia, from Detrqit, from the shores of On- 1
tario,:from the garrisons which fringe the
ocean ? Besides, that to do so would not
leaveto the posts in those parts of thecoun- e
try even a sufficient number of men to take
a- ae o the-puhli--p'opwet. There---a
tachment ofthe regulars with ien.Gaines,
of what number we do not precisely t
know, but sufficient we presume to form P
a nucleus to the Militia, who must, from j
the nature of our Institutions, forbidding f
a large standing ariny, be relied upon to i
furnish the.principal part of the force re- y
quired on sudden occasions. When d
called out, however, it appears to us, it n
should be to rtrnin in the field till the oc- s
casion haspasstd away: under the system tI
which a regard to the.domebtic privations o
of tlminilitia-men has suggested, of short o
1teA is of service, the militia are discharg- d
ad at the moment they are most fit for
-'service. b
With regard to Gen. Gaines's instruc- A,
tions, if he have such as are relei eijd o by '
the Editors of the Journal, we are sorry
.t. see them so publicly disclosed ; be- t
.cause the publicity may itself defeat the
object of the instruction. s

NEW-YORK, FEn. 13. i ,
The U. S. sloop of war Hornet is fit- iT
ting out at this' port for a voyage. We Fi
understand she is ordered to Cape Henry, ii
1-ayti, to demand restitution for property o
belonging to' American merchants, u.- d
justly seized by Christophe, some years a
since. It is rumored that Conmmnodore f
Lewis goes out as agent of the United it
States. .
HFOLK, FtB. 12. a

: We learn from a gentleman who has
lately arrived in town, that the Bueros
Ayrean brig El Patriota, (forme-rly the
Fourth of July,) Corn. Taylor, has captu-
red, off the Canaries, 24 sail,one of which
. was a Spanish Galleon, having on board
A illicn" and a ,'a of dollars with
- w:ich she had. an action of 2 hours and
.22 mih tes, on the 2d of December. The
-Patriota -had 5 i-iiled and 9 wounded;
among whom the Commodore himself,

Ne's/idfiaper'Rewort9.-We :find it cur-.
rently reported in the newspapers, .that
Mr. Gallatin is about to retire from the,
situation of our.Minister to France ; and,
as it is said in private conversation, that,
with all his well-known economical ha-
Jbits, he. has, like every other Minister
whom we have sent abroad, found the
salary of his office wholly inadequate to
his support, the rumor of his intended re-
turn is possibly not without foundation.
It is probable there is less foundation
for the various rumors, whatever plausi-
bility the merits of the gentlemen na-
med nay g:ve to them, .respecting Mr.
Gallatin's successor, who- certainly has
not been designated, even in thought, be-
fore the intention of Mr. G., to retire is

In addition to the list of visitors to our
city, of a public character, given a few'
days ago, we can mention the names of
Judge Van .Ness, of New-York, Judge
Lucas, of Missouri, Col. Lawrence, Col.
Jessup, Gol1 Wool, and Maj. A'Donaid,
of the army, and Captains Elliotand, A ;-
cholson, of the navy.

Official accounts, by. way of Charleston,
.leave no room for a doubt f the fate of
the unfortunate MINA, it any yet remain-
ed. He was sh6t, pursuant to orders
from Apodaca, the Vice-Roy, on the top
of the hill Bllaco, at' that time the Head
Quarters of Field Marshal de Linau.

It is remarkable (says the Boston Dai-
ly Advertiser) that in such a country as
Friiance there should be published, by or-
der of the House of Deputies, a complete
list of the pensioners of the government,
with-the amount of their several pensions.
This list is printed in 10 vols. 4to. The
whole, number of pensioners is 196,205,
and the amount of pensions 63,595,003
francs, equal.to about 11,924,000 dollars.
The greater part of: these pensions are
paid for services rendered Bonaparte, and
either were granted before the restora-
tion, or have been granted to the milita-
ry who0 have since retii'ed from service.
The pensioners are thus divided into
three classes. "

On the arrival of Governor BiaB in
Alabama, he was greeted with much cor
diality by the citizens.. Those who have
enjoyed the pleasure of his acquaintance
or several years in public life will not feel i
uninterested in the following intimation '
if his future prospects, t
At a public dinner given to him at St. t
Stephen's on the 18th December, the fol- S
owing toast was drank among others.
"His Excellency WILLIAM W. BIBa-we C

ou to be assured, that I bring with me the best
disposition to cultivate your good will, and pro- t
mote the interestof your Territory.-. My of- r
spring will be reared, and thle remainder of my n
days spent, among you; I shall at all times feel
he welfare of the country identified with my

y on the commencement of our acquaintance, c

The two important maritime towns in ij
he Floridas are St. Augustine and Pen- s
acola.-These, though small, must be u
xceedingly old, as we find that as far t
ack as 1507 St. Augustine was a flour-
shing little seaport, under the French. o
'hey held it for many years; and Sir o
?rancis Drake, who was scouring the seas a
n that neighborhood, made an attack up- c
Sit in 1536, but with what success we c
o not know at present. It was sacked b
n 1665 by the pirates, who swarmed in t;
nd about the West-India Islands. The tI
english again attackedit in 1702. While t
n the possession of t'e English, a singu-
ar plan of colonization was adopted.-
5,0oo00 Greeks, part from the Morea
nd the adjacent islands, were brought to
"or-ida, and built a town 70 miles from
t. Augustine. called New-Smyrna, They
ndeavored to create a revolution, but
tiled. The Floridas, after being in
osses-ion of Spain, France and England,
as finally restored to Spain ; and there
every reason to believe that they will
come our property. and not transfera-
ble hereafter to any foreign pover.

The De'il amanrithe tailors.
Geitlemen--There is a ni;glry pr(
pensity growing up o1f late, t, in jclti
Congress. for aliniost evcry thing ith
world. Whenever people a.int iaid, tic
petitions Congress; .whenever any ,rt
evolution of commerce or change irr tl
relations of different parts of the woril
ci'curnscribes the trade 4f arny pa itiila
class of men, they immediately .,p.titioi
Congress. Nay, Messrs. Editors, jf an on
reasonable woman chooses to bless lie
spouse with some nineteen or twenti-j
children, Congress is called upon to sane
tion this enormity, by giving a lbounty ii
lands, for the encouragement of all spe
cial breeders.- ,All seem to want etclu.
sive bounties or. exclusive p, Ivlc .-
the hatter petitions for a monopoly ot hatt
-the shoemaker for a monopoly '.lijt
-and so with almost every class oftrades-
men. Instead of fairly entering into a
competition with forti-n riMtf'-rlures.
ta'd beatirit, tlhem ouit of th i a I ki t, 'they
probably find it much easier to acquire,
by petitioning Congress, lth salutary pri-
vilege of niaking their ftaes as. bad as
possible and selling themafbr any price
they. please.
This is pleasantly called making the
country independent, by ar approved mo.
dern patent method, ..that ist say by :ia-*
king three fourths of the people depen-
dent on the other, for almost all the conve-.
niences of life. But I dint ,i..r to enier
into this extensive subj ct. My present
business is with the tailor who have, as
I perceive, g-atEcrtd tliheTclves together
in Philadelphia, and most manfully deter-,
mined to besiege Congress i.ith thimble.
and needle, to pass a law prohibiting the
importation of ready made cl ithes Now,
ready made ,foreign clothes are already
saddled with an immense duty,; and yet it
passed under my personal observation,
not four months ago in Pliladdphii, that
ready made imported English waistcoats,
in every respect equal to those made by
our tailors, were bought by more than one
gentleman, for less than one-half the,
price charged by those exceedingly mo-
dest petitioners. The same disproportion
was observable in coats and pantaloons.
Now, gentlemen, it is worth while to
enquire, why such things are.? Taxed
as every thing is in England up to thqi
eyes, how happens it that, with all the
costs of importation, added to a most
heavy duty here, ready made clothes can
be sent to this country and sold at half
the price of domincicL arti-.le if the saiine
kind-? How n;,ppers n, ... iiart while!
every material employed in making these
cloths"-' has fallen so enormously in this
country,there should be so little difference
in the price of coats, &c, at this time, and
when the materials were fifty per cent.
dearer ? The secret of thb riddle will be
found in the fact of every tailor's grow.
ng rich in a few years by :he inordinate
usurious profits he exacts from his cus-
emers. It is these profits ihat they wish-
o have secured to them, b1 act of Con-
gress, solely no doubt or the score of
maintaining the indepenchnce of their
countryy I Patriotism, gentlemen, carries
broad mantle like charity, that covers at
east oNg half the wiles of selfishness from
he broad glare of sunshine. It is under
his convenient cloak lthatpeople petition
congress, flor the iri. 'ige. f rendering
millions of consumers tributary to the in-
lexible cupidity of every class oftrades-
men, or manufacturers, as they choose to
call themselves, in this age of big
But, to the point. I happen to be nei-
her merchant, cobbler, tailor, tanner, or
manufacturer of any kind. I belong to a
numerous class of men in this country :
mean the people who wear clothes-
when they can get them-certainly no
mall portion of the community, and
ithal possessing a reasonable claim to
common justice. Now, sirs, if these tai-
ors should succeed in stitching Congress
nto-the folds of this unreasonable peti
ion they design to present, instead of get-
ing themselves bastid out of tihe house--
f, I say, they should succeed in their con-
piracy against the :ig ht?,ofmen-what.to
Use the language of a great. orator, among
he ancients--"' What will become of our
past posterity--what, sir, will become of
ur future ancestors-what will become
f the wearers of capeless skirtless coats,
nd Cossack breecies ? What. will be-
ome of the people who wear four waist-
oats to their backs, each with broach and
reast-pinl dight, solely for the benefit ot
these unreasonable tailors? Sir, were
these men to petition me, I would answer
ith the poet,-
" Avaunt, and quit my sight,
. Thy shears are edgelsa- .
"-Thou hast no thread and needle in those paws,
SThat thou dost stitch withal!

2037074 announce to you the execution of a treaty
2717395 with the Creeks on the 22d instant, by
3893780 which they have ceded to the United
519283 States, for the use of Georgia, two con-
I 198 -siderable tracts of land. The one lying
193580'9 to the east side of a line -o be run from
what is usually called Jackson' Treaty

The creek referred to empties into the
Ocmulgee some where near the BigBend,

the Appalachies and Chatalhoichie, and

266556 The price stipulated for the two tracts
50'3163 is one hundred and tweity thousand dol-
2U4t4.14 lars.

10097U0 first fair day, and will then have the plea-
557740 sure of presenting for your consideration,
4662671 an exposition of facts and circumstances,
1731520 attending the present state of affairs in-
13727 'the Creek Nation, upon which you can
162751 rely; for, I perceive by the public papers,

That, by the statement marked A, annexed t
this report, it appears that the average- aomun
of duties upon merchandise, .annually imported
into' the U. States from the British West lnuh
islands, & North American colonial possess.;rs
from 1802 to 1816, excluding the period froi
the commencement of the restrictive system t
the termination of the late war, exceeds tw
millions of dollars. The value of this nierchan
dise upon which these duties accrued, is suj
posed to be equal to seven millions of dollar
per annum. The statement B, shows that ti
average annual aniount'of exports to the same
places, principally of domestic production, t
to 1817, excluding the time of the-operation
the restrictive system, and the continuance i
the war, have exceeded six millions five hu,
dred thousand dollars. The statement C, show
That in the yoar 1815, thT amiiount of duties Or

If we are right in saying that settlement b3
colonization cbndu ,es most to the happiness of
the settlers,'that it smooths away many of theil

found in the interests of the country into which
they are to be incorporated. We believe none

may be supposed, that tiie foreign nationality-
which such a mode'of settlement is calculated to
cherish, may be at variance with the attach.
merits they-ought to form to their :-,dolti
country.. Th:s we consider as a ai,th.k,-. Tlih,
nationality always characterized Irishmen in the
service of France Spain, Germany, and all the
Catholic powers of Europe, and also many of
the must active officers of our revolution ; but
it never prevented their being devotedly at-
tached to the cause and interests of the coun-
tries by which they were protected and em-
ployed. Indeed, the operation of colonization
is to destroy the foreign character of that na-
tionality, aind to give it an object and dwelling
place in the adopted country; to which it is,
therefore, calculated to strengthen the settler's
attachment. His early affections and partiali-
ties would be gradually withdrawn from, the
tforeiga, country, aud transferred te the colony--
they w would become blended with. his devotion,
and gratitude tb tibe government, thi laws aind

Manriy motives, however, determined our
choice,-one was the hope of more. easily suc-

an important acquisition. That, however, was

a motion made some days ago, by Mr.

The debate was resumed on this sub.

The gentlemen who took part in the
discussion this day, were Messrs. GoldA-
borough, Lacock, Tichenor, Otis,. 3frrill

Mr. Rheca, from the committee of pen-

Perrin ; which were read and concurred
Mr. Williams, of N. C. made unfavor-
able reports on the petitions of John -M'-
Gehee, Robert Hays, Antonio Bondie,
John Kee, and William Gamble ; which
were concurred in.
Mr. Williams made a report on the pe-
tition of B. and P. Jourdan Brothers, ac-

which was twice read and committed.
Mr. Lowndes reported a bill fixing the
compensation of the Clerks, &c, of the

which was read.
Mr. Williams of N. C. made a supple.
ineitary report on the petition of John
Ireland, which had, on his motion, been
i-.-conimitted to the committee of claims.
This report adduces, as further testi-
mony against the claim of John Irelanid
a letter addressed by Com. Barney to a
member of the house, denying the fact
that the destruction of the house for
which compensation is claimed, was at-
tributable to the occupation thereof by
the flotilla-men ur'der his-command, kEc.
On this report some little debate took
place, in which MAr. Stuart questioned
the force of this sort of epistolary declar-
ation, in contradiction to the opposing
evidence of several personson oath ; and
Mr. Smith, of Md. questioned the cor-
.recriness of a particular, part of the Re-
port, To both of these gentlemen Mr.
Iilliaztl of N. C.. replied.
The report was ultimately ordered to
lie on the table.
On motion of Mr. Tyler, the commit-

ed to enquire into the expediency of pla-
cing John Miller on the pension list from

On motion of Mr. Bloowfield, the corn
mrittee on foreign relations were instruct-
ed to enquire into the expediency of es
tablishing the residence of a Consul at
Mlogadore, in the Empire of Morocco.
[_Mr. B. assigned as a reason for this
iinotion the advantages which would re.
sult froin a consulate there, &c. and par-
ticularly from the opportunity it would
afford of redeeming from captivity our

2eus, who might be unfortunate enough
'to fall into the hands of the Arabs, &c.j
On motion of Mr. Biount. the conmmit-
tee on the post office apd post roads were
instructed to enquire into the expediency
of establishing .a post road from Greene-
ville, by Newport, Dandridge, and Hill's,

Mr. Tarr offered' for consideration a
motion to the following, effect :
That the committee on military affairs be
instructed to enquire into the expediency of
granting a traci of an hundred and sixty acres
of land to each surviving soldier of the late re-
volutionary army, who enlisted for three years,
and faithfully served out the term of their en-
Mr. S. said that the class referred to
was a very meritorious description of
-men, who had never been provided for
heretofore, but who, he thought, ought
now to be provided for in the manner
which he proposed.
The motion was agreed to, but not
without a considerable number of nega-
tive votes.
The house then resolved itself into a
committee of the whole, Mr Bloomnfield
in the chair, on the bill to establish ai unti-
form Bankrupt Law.
Mr. HIiopkirson rose, and in ar, elabo-

in every thing-it had not, as it has now, ever more ardently attached to his coun-

I judges', and statesmc and warriors.
H-ncc to a young man of enterprise and
" good acquirements, every avenue ot
. wealth and honor was open. These qual-
ifications were possepsed by AMr. C. and
it is not to be wondered that, although
scarcely advanced beyond the age ofTina
jority, he rapidly rose to public stations.
He was first seatd upon the bench, but
how long he occupied that place we can
not say : not, however, very long, as a-
bout the year 1797 he appeared in Con-
gress a representative troin Tennessee.
'this station he tilled respectably until
the accession of Mr. Je-terson to' the
Preside tial chair, when he was appointed
to the government of the ivtisdssippi
Territory. When Louisiana was cQ.ded
to the United Stltes, Mr. C. and Gene-
ral Wilkinson .were appointed commis-
sionets to receive the country from the
;French prefect and afterwards lie was
clothed with unlimited powers to estab-
lish a temporary government, and to ex-
ercise authority until Congress could le-
gislate upon the subject. Mr. C. acquit-
ted himself so much to the saLisfactioti
of the President, and so conciliated the
goodwill ot the newly acquired Territo-.
ry, that, upon the erection of Louisiana.
into two distinct governments, he was
placed at the head of the more impor-.
tant. This was a trust of great niagni-
tude, requiring in its discharge the exer-
cise of versatile powers of miod, and a
felicitous capacity for allaying dissentioi,,
and for exciting'a regard for institutions,
Srly daiitiiltior- I-im1n Uobc which had
beet kcinosi, in the cuimiry, and whict
were engrafted upon the habits, if not up
on the affection of the people. Ditli-
cult, however, as the task was, Mr. C.
succeeded in it far beyond the expect
tons of those who were most sanguine of
his success. He tempereri iith much
ingenuity the authority which he .Wielileti:
the reflecting soon became convinced
of the benefits to be derived from the
change which had takefi place : and in
every community the stream of opinion,
however- disturbed or diverted by sudden
or violent ebullitions. will at last take its
course and be directed in its progress
by the slow but steady 'and irresistible
currentof reason. Louisiana became A
merican': her interests, her passions, and
her principles became firnily joined
to the confederacy, and Mr. CGaiborne,.
upon the first selection of a governor by
the people, was chosen with a voice ap.
preaching to-unanimity. After hisgub-
crnatorial term, and which by the pro-
visionsi of the constitution he could not
immediately repeat, ,he descended to a
private, if we may so terrt.it, in the ranks
of society, where tor the period of thir-
teen years he had been- used to com-
Shortly after his retirement it became
necessary to choose a Senatoi to Congress
from Louisiana, and his election to that
place, although opposed by a gentleman
of distinguished ability, and high in the
favor of the state, bespoke the overwhel.i-
ing character of his popularity. While
preparing for his journey to Wa'shinigton,
to take his seat in the ensuing Congress,
he was attacked by a disease of the liver,
which had lormierly visited him, tut which,
on the last occasion, baffled the utmost
powers of medicine, and overcame tshe
resistance of a constitution apparently of'
great native vigor. His confinement was
long and his sufferings great: but the
writer can testify that throughout nis ill-
ness, and until the moment of his disso-
lution, he was turaiquil and resigned, and
elevated abive the ignoble ideas of those
who vainly fear inevitable things." tie
