The Chevalier DE ON is, the Minis-
ter of Spain, arrived inii this city from the
northward a day or two ago.

The Directors of the Bank of the U.ni-
ted States, on Monday last, declared a di-
vidend of three and a half per cent. for
the last half year, payable on or after
the 16th instant.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, about
five o'clock, another explosion took place
at the BladensDurg Powder Mills, owned
by Mr. Buasard, of Georgetown. Five
of the men were killed, and one other
-dangerously wounded.

The Legislature of New-Hampshire
adjourned on Tuesday the 30th ult.
The committee appointed to consider
that part of the Governor's message
which relates to the propositions ofJeru-
my Bentham, Esq. reported, that the fur-
thersconsideration of that subject be de-
ferred to the next session of the Legisla-
ture ; and that the books and papers ac-
companying the same be placed in the
office oaf the S. secretary of State.
A resolve passed instructing the mem-
bers of Congress of that state to obtain an
amendment to the constitution, respect-
ing the choice of Electors of President
and Vice-President and Representatives
in Congress, to provide that they shall be
chosen in districts, instead of a general
ticket, and
Another resolve, that it is inexpedient
to amend the constitution of the United
Stattdas ptqppsed by the state of Ken-
tucky, to wit, '' tat no law varying the
compensation of the members of Con-
gress, shall take effect until the term for
which the memb rs of the House of Re-
presentatives of that Congress by which
the law was passed, shall have expired."


We have now received, through the
medium of a New-Orleans Gazette, a
secc,nd General Order of the General
commanding the Southeirn Division, an,
bouncing to the People of Pensacola, and
to the World, (as the first Order had an-
' -"' -- .=a. -=- ja
the reasons for the occupatgn. ot-ensa
cola, and the arran.~e fnlits'cihnsquc rtl)
made. We place it before our readers,
as we shall continue to do every docu-
ment or information which may reach us
having a tendency to shed light upon
the subject.

Head Quarters, Division of the South,
PENSACOLA, xMAT 29, 1818.
Major General Andrew Jackson has
found it necessary to take possession of
Pensacola. He has not been prompted
to this measure from a wish to extend the
territorial limits of the United Siates, or
from any unfriendly feeling on the part
of the American Republic to the Spanish
government. The Seminole Indians, in-
habiting the territories of Spain, have, for
more than two years past, visited our
frontier settlers with all the horrors of sav-
age massacre-helpless women have
been butchered and the cradles stained
.with the blood of innocence. These a-
trocities, it was expected, would have ear-
ly attracted the attention of the Spanish
government, and, faithful to existing trea-
ties, that speedy measures would have
been adopted for their suppression.
The obligation to restrain them was
acknowledged; but weakness was al-
lodged with a confession, that so far from
being able to control, the Spanish autho-
rities were often compelled from policy
or necessity to issue munitions of war to
these savages, thus enabling, if not excit-
ing them to raise the tomahawk against
us. The immutable laws of self defence,
therefore, compelled the American go-
vernment to take possession of such parts
*of the Floridas in which the Spanish au-
thority could not be maintained. Pensa-
colawas found in this situation, and will
be held until Spain can furnish military
strength sufficient to enforce existingtr:a-
ties. Spanish subjects will be respected;
Spanish laws will govern in all cases af-
fecting property and person: a free tole-
ration to all religions is guaranteed, and
trade alike free to adlnations.
Col. KING will assume the command
of Pensacola, as military and civil gover-
T'he Spanish laws, so far as they affect
personal rights and property, will be en-
forced. Col. King will take. possession
of the archives of the province, and ap-
.point some confidential individual to pre-
serve them. It is all important that the
records of titles and property should be
carefully secured. He will cause an en
quiry'to be made into all the landed pro-
perty belonging to the King of Spain,and
have possession taken of it. The claims

of property within the range of gun shot
of fort Carlos de Barancas will be scrupu-
lously examined into, and should they
prove valid, a rent allowed, but possession
int no wise given. This property is ne-
cessary to the United States. and under
its laws may be held, an equivalent being
The revenue laws of the United States
will be established, and Capt. Gadsden is
appointed to act as collector, with full
powers to nominate such sub-officers as
in his opinion will be necessary to the
faithful discharge of the trust reposed in
him. He will apply to the Governor of
Pensacola for military aid in all cases
where it may be necessary to correct at-
tempts at illicit trade.

To-morrow, the remains of General
been brought from Quebec for the pur-
pose, will be deposited (with suitable mi.
litary honors)near the monument erected
to his memory in St. Paul's Church.
Proper arrangements have been made
for this interesting g ceremony, and we are
assured, that nothing will be lacking that
can tend to honor the memory of a hero,
who fell gloriously fighting for that in,
dependence which we celebrated on Sa-

Arrived here on Saturday night, the
new Steam-Boat Ohio, captain H. M.
Shreves, from the Falls of the Ohio.
This fine vessel is 450 tons burthen, and
constructed in such a manner as to carry
a much greater quantity of goods than
any other boat on the river. Her timbers
and bottom planks are so thick as to ren-
der it next to impossible that anj sawyer
should piece them ; and thus she hiay
defy most of those misfortunes which have
lately happened to smaller boats on the
river. Nor will these means of security
impede the velocity of her march ; we
are glad that the captain confidently ex
pects to make the passage up in less than
20 days.
Another new steam-boat called the
Napoleon, was left at New-Madrid, and
may be shortly expected. She belongs
to the same concern as the Ohio ; is
somewhat smaller, but calculated for
still greater speed, and has very elegant
and extensive accommodations for pas-

proved himself a bold and successful
champion of free trade on the Great
Western waters.

"Unless you were an eye witness, you
could not possibly have an idea of the im-
mense number of people now daily emi-
grating from this country to the United
States ; in fact, vessels cannot be had thasi
enough When a vessel is once announc-
ced,her complement of pass. iget'rs is made
up immediately. But, from a question put
to Lord Castlereagh, a few days since, in
the House of Commoiklit appears '.o be
the determination of the British govern-
ment to put a stop to this emigration, if
possible. This will be rather, I appre-
hend, a difficult matter, and if attempted,
an arbitrary step on the part of our go-

Swarms of LOCUSTS have recently appeared
in this part of the'country, extending upon
the right bank of Connecticat river twenty or
thirty miles south of this town. It is impossi.
ble to measure the extent of the injury they
are doing to the timber. Many trees are now
apparently dead. The female locusts are arm-
ed with a st.ng of nearly the third of an inch
in length, and of tlhe stifliness and point of a
wire sharpened.' They attach themselves to
the under side of tie small limbs, and cnm-
mence the process of stinging. Their pro-
gress is to the extremity of thie limb, which is
as disutently marked as it could be by oblique-
ly ".icr',r ... the limb with an awl, and so rai-
sing the awl at each puncture as to crack the
bark in a regularly continued, and, unless im-
peded by some obstruction, in nearly a right
line. There are about three incisions to an
inc;, eachi.penetrating to the heart of the limb,
which is filled with small worms or egg., of the
color and appearance of very small kernels of
rIce, but distinctly visible to the naked eye.
\ e are not able to state further particulars in
relation to these runious insects, nor when nor
where they first appeared, nor precisely how
far they have extended themselves-bst their
progress, so far as we have seen, is marked as
the progress of fire.-Those who are curious to

gers on board at the brtige at 9 o'clock-alia
with a view to the greater gratification cf tae

Burgesses as early as the year 1772, u.nd per-

to represent the County of Charlotte, both in

N order to save the public the trouble of at-
tending upon the invitation contained in
the above advertisement, we think it our duty
to give notice, that the property has been long
ago redeemed, inasmuch as we who are now
the proprietors of the establishment, have re-
tired the note which the deed of trust was
given specifically to secure. It is not expect-
ed, therefore, that any person can be inclined
to maei a nugatory and nominal purchase, un-
less. indeed, with some view to speculate upon
the guarantee of the a.ivertiser.

TTowever much we were interested and
instructed in the perusal of the letter
whizh follows, and however appropriate
ly it might have followed ns the suite to
the already published Deba'e in the House
of representatives at the late session, we
do not know that we should have copied
it, had we not seen it announced that Mr.
MaIDDLE i ON has declined a retel-ction to
Congress; because its publication might
have been regarded as an improper inter-
ference between him and those of his
consti uents who differ from him in opin-
ion. That objection is now removed. The
determinati -n of Mr. Middleton to de-
cline a re-election is to be regretted. His
general intelligence, (not to speak of his
pers nal character) conferred credit on
the House of which he has been an use-
ful member: and, if he has not mingled
in Debate, his letter sufficiently shows, if
such evidence were wanting, that it was
not from the defec, of ability. Indeed,
he would judge most inaccurately of the
talents of Legislators, who should esti-
mate them by the quantum of time they
respectively occupy ip Debate, or the
frequency with which they take the floor.
Thus nothing can be more incorrect than
the opinions formed of men, by a
p- rusal of the Debates of Congress -
There are some citizens, eloquent or si-
lent, whose talents can neither be mista-
ken nor overlooked, who enjoy no higher
reputation than they arejus:ly entitled to:
but there are others who obtain charac-
ters, for which a smart speech or two af-
ford but a slender foundation : and there
have been, within our -knowledge, many
- gjeileinen in C ngress, of distinguished
ability, who, during- heir term oTservice,
have not found it necessary to make a
single speech, bu have no: been, there
fore, the less useful to their country in
their public station. So it is in all Le-
gislative bodies so it is inall societies.
To the communication from Mr. Mid-
dlet:.n.to his constituents, which we now
publish, it has been obj acted, that his sen-
timents ought to have been delivered on
the floor of Congress, and through that
channel only transmitted to his constitu-
ents. WV hat is here objected appears to us
commendable. Mr. M. has, in the course
he has pursued, recognized and acted on
the principle of Representative respon-
sibility, one of the first in the Republican
creed. He desired his constituents to
know the grounds on which he had acted
in his official conduct, on a particular
leading question, ,and he took the mos-t
direct, frank and manly method of infor-
ming them. It remains for his consti-
tuents and the public to decide what con-
sideration the views which he has presen-
ted are entitled to.

CooaTns HIIAL, March 30th, 1818.
To the Editor of the Southern Patriot.
SIRll-The most important proposition which
Congress has had before it this session, that of
iMr. Speaker Clay, to appropriate a sum tor an
outfit and salary for a Minister to be sen' to the
United Provinces of La Plata, if the President
should think fit," has just been decided in the
negative by a vote of 115 to 45 in the House of
Representatives. .
-mets onthis floor, from an unwillingness to
prolong a discussion, of which the issue was ne-
ver doubtful; yet,as the subject is of the highest
importance (the adoption ofthe proposition in-
'olving nothing less than WAR in its probable
consequcoces)' I think my constituents may be.
fairly entitle' to know the grounds of my vote:
Believing too, that the friends of the measure
will not let jt rest here, I think itlimportant that
its inevitable tendency should be understood..
I therefore request the favor of you, to give in-
sertion in your paper to the present communi-
cation, in which it is only intended, however,
to touch on one or two of me most prominent
parts of the subject.
It has been attempted in the course of the
debate, to excite party feeling; to represent
the vote about to be taken, as one which would
draw a line of demarkation between brethren of
the same principle-divide those who had hith-
erto been tunited-and, in a word, designate'
who were and were not thle real friends of free-.
dom. I did not view it in this light. I consi-
dered it as a mere question of expediency, in-
volving no point of principle whatever.
I must further premise, that I cannot permit
myself to be governed by feeling upon this floor.
I consult neither my sympathies nor my antipa-
thies, in matters of policy. The good or ill
success of what is termed the Patriot cause, is
viewed by me in this place,'with a single eye to
the interest of my own country. I make no pro.
sessions of general philanthropy, wh le I be-
fieve it to be my duty to legislate for the United
States of Ai-erica, and not for the whole human
The maxim, Peace, Commerce and Iozest t
Friendship -with all nations, entangling alliancets
-with none, may be said to have passed into our
political creed; and this nmxim, I think, should
be the touchstone by which to try the merits of
the Speaker's proposition.
I shall state the case without questioning the
independence dejfac.'os of I'uenos Ayres, assum
ed by the friends of the proposition.
It cannot oe doubted, I think, butt that the a.-
do; tion of the proposition by a majority of the
popular branch of the government, would have
.been construed by the Executive, as an instruc-'
tion, or, at least, considered by him as a strong
evidence of the public sentiment in favor of a
recognition of some one of the contending par-
ties in Buenos Ayres, as an independent gov-
ernment. The probabthiy is, that the President
would haye felt himselfdivested of all respon-
sibility by such an expression of the sense of
Congress ; anti that hlie would have proceeded
fort'hwith to form a treaty of amity and com-
merce, specially adnt ttittg (ot a' lea : implying)
an acknowledgement of independence, either
with the agent of Iluenos Ayres here, or by
sending a mist r there as the resolution pro-
cl's would, in itself, he on act perfectly inno-

,F.atai4 Acident,-On the night be
tween Tuesday and Wednesday, not far
from Richelieu, as the steam Boat Car
of Coinmmercewas proceeding on her voy-
age to this city, she came near 4 brig or
ship atanchor. Although h, r machinery
was in foiFe, she nevertheless steered
rlear of her ; but unfortunately and .un-
p received, she fell foul of a river craft,
which sne ran down,and, as it is said,jwith-
out the possibility f avoiding it.The mas-
ter if t he craft, and crew, were saved, but
melancholy to relate, a female passenger
perished WVe havenot-learnt the name
of the sloop or scho;,.er, nor that of the
master; bnt we understand site had been
loaded with wheat at Verchere, by Xav-
icr Maihoit, Esq. for account of Messrs.
Bell andi Stewart, Quebec. We give
this imperfect sketch, strictly as it was
related to us.

At a special district court, held in this
town on the 22d inst. the Spanish brig
Beilo Corunes, prize to the patriot pri
vateer Pucyti.edon,was. by the consent of
the ciaimanis, decreed to the Spanish
consul ; and the brig and ca,'go ordered
to be sold. and the proceeds, alter paying
the duties kind expenses, vested in Unti
ted Siates stack, to ,!wait the decision of.
the Suoreme Court of the t-nited states .
App,-als havy' been entered by the captors
of the brig to the Circuit Court of the
United States which meets in this town
in November next.

'swer proved greatly superior to his first
memorial. The very nekt day, the am-
bassador delivered it to the minister for
exterior relations, who was quite asto-
nished at the strong h of the reasoninvs.
which were alleged in opposition to his
master's views; at the address with which
they were bro't fo'-ward, & at the elegance
of style which pervaded the whole of this
diplomatic document. The emperor
was no less loud in his expressions of sur-
prize ; every one admitted into the em-
peror's council talked of it; .eri different
writers were thought of, but nobody
could guess the real author. It was only
about three years after that, in a moment
of frolic, which banished reserve-Figa-
ro acknowledged this trifling piece of
roguery to his master."


9AVAWNAH, JttiT 2.
The commander of the United Stales' reve-
nue cutter Dallas, having strong reasons for sup-
posing that there still remained some part of
the cargo of the Spanish ship Pastora, which
had been smuggled, and had not yet been re-
covered, dispadched on Sunday last, a boat, un-
der the command of an officer, with orders to
proceed to Port iRoyal Sound, and elsewhere,
for the purpose of recovering, the goods, and
detecting individuals concerned in the nefari-
ous transaction. The objects of the expedition
were completely realized. A quantity of arti-
cles, consisting of wine, cordage, paper and
dry goods, were discovered and taken posses,
sion nf by lieut. Hubbard,& deposited with the
collector of Beaufort. The names of the per-
sops in whose possession the goods were hound,
we have seen ; they will, of course, be prose.
cuted agreeably to the revenue laws of the U.
It is stated by one of the crew of the privt.-
vateer Young Spartan, who was arrested and is
now confined, in Beaufort, by the officer of the
cutter Dallas, that a quantity of dry goods taken
and landed from the Pastora, together with a
number of cases of HIItlland Gin, that had been
plundered from a Dutch ship from Amrsterdam
bound to Havana, by the Young Spartan, have
been sent to Charleston for the avowed purpose
of defrauding the rev-enue.
The vigilance which captain Jackson, and his
officers, have evinced during the whole of this
affair, merits the applause of all honest men.

Rapid Emigration to Canada -From
the 25th to the 29th of June, 501 settlers
arrived at the port of Quebec from Eu-
rope. The whole number that have ar-
ri.ed here this season, since the river
St. Lawrence has been free from ice: and
navigable for shipping, is stated in the
Quebec.Gazette at 2378. The same pa-
per informs us, that several thousand
scotch Highlanders have formed an as-
sociation for the purpose of emigrating
to Canada, and were to have sailed from
Greenock in the month of May.

A correspondent informs us that BELLE
POIaT, the site recently occupied as a
garrison, on the A: kans;us river, is situ-
ated in north latitude 3.5 23' 12", at the
junction of Porto river, four hundred and
sixty miles from the mouth of the Ar-
kansas, pursuing its meanders, and about
twenty miles above the Osage boundary
The situation selected for the garrison
is secure and healthy, and affirds a com-
plete command cf the rivers above men-
tioned; Its elevation is about thirty five
feet above the water, from which it is
accessible by an easy ascent. The point
is supported upon a basis of stratafied
stone, well adapted for building, and is
surrounded by wood land affording ah a-
bundance of excellent timber.
The soil of the adjacent country is ex-
uberant, producing corn, cotton, &c. int
greil perfection.

tion was then adopted:

St. Augustine on Thursday. He informs
us, that ai Spanish corvette of 26 guns.
ard two brigs of eighteen guns each
arrived off that place un Sunday last, in
a short passage f m Havana, having un-.
der convoy the schooners Barbarita' and
Santa Rosa. loaded with munitions of war,
clothing, provisions, and about 20,000 dol-
lars in doubloons, for the use and pay of
the soldiers at that ppst. The vessels of
war sailed again on Monday andTuesday,
the sch'rs were discharging when apt. B.
sailed. No certain information had been
received at St. Augustine of the fall of
Pensacola. A large "body of Indians, with
their women and children, were encamp-
ed within about 4 miles of St. Au 'ustine,
and a number of them daily visited the
town. The garrisop which amounts to
about 400,were much elated by this time-
ly supply of clothing, provisions and mo-
ney, which they had been Jooking for.

A private letter from Paris states, that
an account had been received there of a
violent affray at Cambray, between some
French and English officers. It is stated
to have arisen in a coffee house, where
one of the English officers happened to
deliver too free an opinion on the cam-
paign of 1815, and the battle of Waterloo.
This led to the drawing of sabres; a tu-

street; and report adds that some lives
