We regard it as not the least inter

straggle in South America, that th
contending parties have it in contemple
tica to adopt the usages of'civilized war
fare. by consenting to exchange their pri
soners. The patriots first made the pro
'position to that effect, but the Spanis'
Vice Roy, proud of his strength, an
confident of victory, treated the applica

turn to his sentiments. We now fin,

THE ILLINOIS CONVENTION.

SHIAWNEETOWN, AUG. 9.
A report is going the rounds in the
eastern papers that the law providing for
the admission of our territory in the U-
nion cannot be carried into effect, .on ac-
count of 'a deficiency in our population.
The official exhibit made some time since
by the secretary of this territory, and
published in the Emigrant at the time,
was not conclusive' evidence that there
would not be 40.000 i-,habitants by thei
firsc Monday in August, the day fixed for
the meeting of the Convention.
It will be seen by a reference to the
proceedihas. of that body in this week's
paper, that the aggregate amount of our
population is 40,258 ; that it has been de..
cleared expedient to lorm a constitution
and state government; and that a com..
mittee of one from each county has been
appointed to draft and report one accord-.
ingly.
T'l'he report above alluded to had its
origin in an Illinois newspaper, whence
it was copied into the National Intelli-
gencer: we are glad to find that the po-
pulation has so far increased in the inter-
mediate time as to afford the requisite
number of 40,000 ]

Murder & Suicide.-A horse of Jones's
at the island, threw his rider, a little ne-
gro boy, a few days since, who was drown-
ed. Last evening the horse went into
the river and drowned himself!-[Times.

NEW YORK, SEPT. 10.
A letter from New Orleans, of the 12th

here are in for 25,000 dollars on slaves,
stolen on the high seas. The bay is full

CALCUTrA, (iNDIA) APRIL 29.
We take the following curious account
from a Bombay paper :-" Captain Pow-
ell, of the Queen. Charlotte, informs us of
the interesting circumstance of'his hav-
ing recovered, from a rock, 31 miles N.
W. of Nooaheevah, (one of the Marques-
sas) a man that had been its solitary inha-
bitant for nearly three years. Hi's account
stated, that early in 1814, he proceeded
thither from Nooaheevah,with four others
all ofwhom had left an Amercan ship
there, for the purpose of procuring fea-
thers, that were in high estimation among
the natives of Nooaheevah ; but losing
their boat on the rock, three of his com-
panions in a short time perished, through
famine, and principally from thirst, as
there was no water but what was supplied
by rains. His fourth companion contin-
ued with him but a few weeks, when he
formed a resolution of attempting to


diseases.
More, however, is required, Longer
observation is necessary. The materials
must be collected. In due time some
fortunate genius, some master builder'
will appear, and arrange them into a no-
ble edifice. In the mean while, you and 1
and others, must labor, adopting for our
maxim, never to be.iveary with well do-
ing.
You have done well, sir, to collect the
facts. I thank you for your goodness in
sending them to me. There is great en-
couragement to labor where the harvest
is abundant and a scarcity of haids.

EPITAPHS.

Fro.a A ENustt rPAPEi.
There has lately ?appeared in the French
papers a regulation to be observed in
bringing into a more rational and moral.
view the Inscriptions and Epitaphs in the
different cemeteries of that kingdom. It
should seem, from the ludicrous inscrip-
tions to be met with in our English
Churchyards, that men were determined
to make a jest of the grave; and if the
subject were not too serious for such a
remark, one might be inclined to say that
a collection ot tombstone po-try would
rival Joe Miller, and stand next upon the
laughing list to Colimon's Bruoad Grins.
A few of such inscriptions are subjoined,
to show that they are yet of a recenttdate.
The following may be seen in Doncaster
Churchyard.
"Here lies two brothers by misfortune surrotmi-
(led,
One (ied ofthis wounds,the other was drownedd"
And in a neighboring burying ground at
Arksey, of a less recent date, may be
found several equally ludicrous, fr(,m a-
mong which, we sehlct what follows:
Farei'll my friends it,
Sisters anid dear itoither,

And have gont n oIthler.

I at est howeverlittleconfidence on the lations by a demonstration of the ability
to defend, with the power to hurl ven-
flattering anticipation of political happi- geance on the wanton aggressor who
ness at each qew mera of executive power, might dare to stain the soil of the repub-
when presented in this its first aspect. lic by hostile intrusion.
If the'recepuicn of Mr. Menroe had been his visitation of seacoast and g-


cId and distrustful, a auttery ot strength
would have been raised by the future ma-
lignity of party spirit, adverse to his well-
earned popularity, and perhaps actively
employed to gratify its nefarious purpose.
But very different was the effect p oduced
by his presence, in the prosecution of the
grand object of his excursion. The hate-
ful spirit of faction had occasioi:ed till
then thie severance of years of social in-.
tercourse-the festive board then re-
ecihoed with the same patriotic wish; for
the 'first time, Discord hid her gloomy'
face,, social affection revived, and the ad-
dress'to the common father of his country
flowed in one compion stream of undivid-
ed r-gard. The bitterness and indignancy
of party spirit was lulled into a temporary
calm,! and, however difficult to forget or
forgive eastern degradation during the re-
cent war, this united republican ,and fede-
ral respect was an offering the generous
would receive, as lessenig, if not nearly
extinguishing, the disgust and horror the
parricidal acts of some of the New-Eng-
land States had so strongly excited.
In all the exterior deportment of the
first magistrate, at his table, the civi-
licies of intercourse, private or public, I
should have felt humbled if .'!r. Monroe,
the President of the Union, the man of
the people, cmld on ti'e-e rccasinns have
indicated a "sha d otf dc iti.ina.toil 1. Il.,
recicpn o0th h1 rT,"T-'.t' s t hundtd
on poiitical divisi nor div rsity of opinion
on the measures of government.
l Has, then, a conduct so wise and dig-
,nified given offence? Would our mis-,
taken patriots have extolled the hand that
raked the dying embers of national dis-
union ? It was not thus the noblest h art-
ed monarch .of the French received the
men who had opposed him in arms and
spread desolation'for years over that fine
country. Is Mr. Monroe, then, to be re-
p;oachcd with an overstrained compla-
cency, 'when with honor to himself and
advantage to the republic, he has thus
mrt the unextorted respect shown to him
in his Presidentia, character.? When we
behold a good and virtuous action, are we
invidiously to pretend to pry into the re-
cessts of the human heart in hopes to-
disturb and muddy its fountain ? There
are few' men so depraved, whatsoever
maskmay be assumed, whose hearts do
not respond when the chord of philan-
thropy is struck. Western prejudices
have tried to throw a shade on these
courtesies, but the mistaken jealousies of
a patriotic state must soon yield, if they
have not already, under the just result,
that these respectful attentions were ho-
norably and appropriately bestowed,
and rightfully reciprocated.
This tour of Presidential duty possess-
ed other characteristics, not to be over-
looked, and worthy of the public attention.
Among a people of insatiable avidity for
news,'it will be hardly credible, that the
arrival at Baltimore and the disclosure
of its object were cunsentaneously an-
nounce4. The rapidity of the movement
was no doubt intended to avoid the in-
cumbrances and delay -if form. All wa"
plain, sit.ple, and republican. But in
a government constituted like ours, the
wishes of the individual must y eld to the
popular will. The peevishness of even
a Henry the Great, wheu accosted with
long addresses, would ill accord with the
resp ct which the first citiz. n of a repub-
lic owes to his constituents.
A journey of inspection, the toil o
months, is commenced wvn to u lat hbirg
to aItounce, or hit-guardsmen to pro
tect, in a circuit of an imnuiTi.se exent,
resting with confidence on the general
affection due to the early soldier and the
h lo ng-trained state-man.
Monarchy, 'when seen abroad, is gent-,
rally enveloped in a blaze of 'splendor;


neral frontier will forrni a distinguished
trait of the administration ot Mr. Monroe,
and of which he has furnished the first
example.
It is the province of great r.men to avail
themselves, no matter from what source,
of whatever may tend to the national ad
vantage. One of the most illustrious
monarchs of whom Europe can nl-w boast
did not disdain to follow the same path
last year, impelled perhaps onmy by the
native vigor of his mind and by his ac-
knowledged philanthropy.
After the last adjournment of Congress
the President resumed the patriotic task,
contemplated, I presume, on a limited
scale, and intended this year probably to
be. confined to the Federal District and
part of Virginia. The sudden tecal- of
the Executive to the seat of government
was, no doubt, occasioned by the crisis in
our affairs with Spain, to which the ardent,
gaze of the public eye is at this time
still specially direct..d.
The evils incident to war, the vicissi-
tudes and changeful fortune of the last,
the spirit of disaffection which raged in
the east,our financial distresses, the inter-
ruption to our commerce and the check
to our growling greatness, will, 'to every
reflecting ultiidriJ,.a SuIthE question of peace
.t w.,r to be of momentous concern.

ali dlLt rnauve, when the evils enJdured ar,
greater and m'-re pernicious than it.is pro
able we shall be exposed to by open and
avowed hostility. America felt that Great
Britain had placed her in that ignomi-
nious state. It was a deep impression of
this truth which carried us triumphantly
through., Britain had no intention to
begin war whilst we patiently submitted
to the indignities she inflicted. To im-
pose on a credulous people, she affected
to consider our resort to war as changing
the wrong-doer into the sufferer, the in-
jured into the wanton aggressor.
If we have risen in strength after a con-
test with a fierce and powerful enemy
without. whilst agonizing under a grow-
ing gangrene from a foe within, let us not
forget we owe it chiefly to the goodness,
of our cause, to its justice, and, finally, to
one great event, bearing down at last a
hitherto remorseless opposition.
It was the useless barbarity of the fire kin-
dled at Washington, consuming the splen-
did monuments of taste and magnificence,
so honorable to the new world, which re-
moved the film from the dimmed eye of
faction, and imparted union and its conse-
quents, strength and energy, to the na-
tion.
The reputation, justly acquired, of na-
val and. military heroism, by the generous
and high toned honor of our commanders
by sea and land, by the bravery ol our
sailors and soldiers, by the gentle spirit
of our government, tempered with una-
bating firmness and efficiency, must not
rashly be lavished and thrown away, but
hoarded as the miser clasps his treasure.
Reputation is strength, if not abused; it
is perhaps as much so in its moral as phy-
sical character. These sentiments are
little necessary to be pressed on the go-
vernment; but they cannot bf too stroBgly
enforced, where the public voice always
acts so powerfullyy on its measures..
ITn a second number I shall present some
considerations on public affairs, not more
important t.an those I have already sug-
gested, though less general in their appli-
cation.

ON THE LONGITUD'E.
FROMlt THE BOSTON CENTINSEL.I
We find, by the British papers, that a
bill has passed the Commons "1 for the
more effectuul discovery of the Longi
tude, and to encourage the attempts to
find a passage between the Atlantic and
Pacific oceans, and an approach to the
North Pole."
The objects of the bill are the consoli-
dation of the acts (22 in number) which
are in force on the subject; to provide
for the correction of mnaiy errors which
have occurred in nautical standard works,
and to add three scientific men (Dr.
Woollarton, Dr. Young, and Capt. Tay-
lor) to the Board of Longitude. Mr.
Crocker, of the Admiialty, who intro-
duced the bill, stated a number of facts on
the subject, which, we believe, are no'
generally known. He mentioned that the
first British act passed on it was in the
reign of Queen Ann, (say 1708-10) but
that, long before that time, Phillip II. of
Spain, (1598) offered a large reward for
the discovery of the longitude ; that the
Dutch made a similar offer; and a French-
man, named Meran, (about 1640) first hit
on the idea of finding the longitude by
means of lunar observations; but that this
was afterwards abandoned as impractica-
ble ;-that it was Sir Isaac Newton (born
in 1642 and died 1727) who, alive to the
subject, suggested the institution of the
Board of.Longitude to effect it ; that this
board made but little progress until the
destruction of Sir Cloudesley Shovel's
fleet owing to a misreckoning, which a.
wakened attention to the subject. and in,-
dtced parliament to offer a munificent re-
ward for the discovery of the longitude'.
By the law then enacted, provision was
made that the author of any mode, by
which, in a voyage from England to the
West Indies, the ship's longitude should
be kept within a degree, should receive a
reward of- 44,.400 dollars.. If it proceed-
ed in keeping the longitude within two
thirds of'a de,.ree, he was to receive
66 600 dollars ; but if the longitude could
possibly be kept within half a degree, or
30 minut-s, then the projector should re-
ceive 88,800 dollars; that, in 1745, an
ingenious mechanic, named Harrison, in-
vented a watch, which,.on the first trial,
fally met the provisions of both acts. In
a voyage to Berbice, it kept the longitude
of the ship within 30 geographical miles;
and he was fortunate enough to obtain
the reward of 24,0001. sterling (106,560
dollars); and that this was effected mere-
ly by a chronometer. Mr. C. then stated,
that there were but two ways of arriving
at a true knowledge of the longitude.
One was by a watchliset in the country
from which the ship departed, and after-
wards compared with the time in the
country to which she has proceeded ; the
a compai-son giving the distance in Lime,
which could a awards be reduced to
space. The second mode wvas by taking
observations of the moon, in relation to a
fixed star, which was the surest method.
The one waa a mechanical, the other a
scientific mode of arriving at the same
result. In 1760, Mr. C. observed, a Mr.
Meyer published tables so extremely use-
ful that Parliament bestowed on him a
gratuity of 3,0001. By means of those ta-
bles, the longitude was now found within
a fraction. In examining the log books
of the king's ships, he said, he found
very extraordinary degree of correctness.
The longitude, as found by a chronome-
ter, was discovered to vary very little from
the real longitude, if he might be allowerl
to use that popular expression, since, in-
deed there was no real longitude. Sup-
pose, for instance, he. added, the true lon-
gitude 'of St. Helena was 5 deg. 43 mrin.
30 sec. Capt. Martin carried it out 5 deg.
38 uiin. 36 sec.-capt. leywood 5 deg.
39 min.-and his majesty's ship Buce-..
phalus agreed exactly with the true time,
5-deg. 43 min. 30 sec. Using a poetical
expression,
So wide is art, so narrow human view,"
he might, he said, say, that the so long
despaired-of object of scientific resci.rth,
the longitude was now discovered. Ior
all practical .purposes it was discovered.
Still, he continued, mechanical instru-
ments were liable to decay ; and to im
prove the lnnar method was -till a great
subject for legislation. What had already
been done showed, the great utility of of-
fering rewards, The progress had been
principally owing to the exertions of
Great Britain and the suggestions of the
immortal Newton. It might be asked,
he said, if so much had been done, what
was the object of his bill ? He then pro-
ceeded to explain the object, declaring ihe
meant not the least disrespect to the pre-
sent Board of Longitude; but lamented
that it did not contain a single scientific
man nearer than the Univer.:ities. It
could not, he said, be considered as pre
sumption to agitate a subject not'discuss-
ed in Parliament for nearly one hundred
years. He then alluded to the numerous
errors which had crept into the Nautical
Almanac since the death of Dr. Maske-
lyne, who invented it in 1767.
In the work for the present year, he said
there were no less than eighteen errors
relating to the places of the sun and moon;
and in a second edition, not less than 40-
in fact, he'said, the Nautical Almanac"
was now a by-word among scientific men
He then pointed out some of the effects
of these errors, which, to exculpate the
literary men connected with the work,
and who had other and more important
avocations, he declared were mostly ty-
pographical; but that the proof-reader of
the Almanac was not recognized by the
acts, and, therefore, not legally known.


This made it necessary that a person
should be selected and paid by Parliament
to superintend theprinting of the work.


Mr. C. then adverted to the reward of understanding,: Therein the ahly ques

FREDERICK ACADEMY.
VIHE Trustees of this institution feel parti-
cular pleamur3 in saving to the pub!ic,that,
after the present vscatioi, which will end cn
the 31st inst. it will open under the care of the
Rev. Dr. Elliott, who has lately been appointed
the Principal. From the high and long estab-
lished reputation of Dr. Elliott as an erudite and
accomplished scholar, and an able instructor ;
from the abundant and satisfactory proofs af-
forded by the Rev. Mr Davidson and Mr. Mar-
k!e, of'the progress of the pupils in their res-
pective departments, of their qualifications, ad-
ded to the very eligible situation of the instiou-
tion for health, and the cheapness of tuition and
board, the Trustees are encouraged to expect a
considerable increase of students from abroad.
Parents and guardians who may send their chil-
dren or wards to this seminary, may confident-
ly expect that every attention will be paid to
their improvement in knowledge, morals and
manners. The institution is at this time in a
very flourishrnog situation, having at the close of
the last quarter 124 pupils.

Very Valuable Properly for Sale,
' Which is i, orth the attention of any
gentleman ofJ capital."
WILL sell the tract of land in the county
Sot Hanover, whereon my late father lived,
known by the name of Fairfield. It contains
at present about 1000 acres, a portion of which
is line Chickahominy low grounds, most hea-
vily fimbered with pine, white oak andash,as
i; also a part of the high land. From an ex-
periment that has been recently made, it ap-
pears to be well calculated for the u.enof the
plaister. The low grounds are capable of
making first rate meadows. There is no tract
of land in that part of the country, or as near
Richmon.-t, which, 1 have ever seen, that has as
,'-nuch fine timber otf it. It is within eight
miles of the city of Richmond, and. if a turn-
pike is effected, as now contemplated, it is ge-
nerally supposed it will lessen the distance two
or three miles; This place is remarkably
healthy, and I believe I am correct when I say,
there is no spot more so below the moun trains ;
for there have been as many cases of longevity
there, and immediately in that neighborhood,
as in any part of this state. The last posses-
sor of Fairfield, as well as several persons a few
miles only from it, have lived to be upwardst
of 80 years of age, and there is one ina-nce"
where the advanced age of 120 years, was at-
t.ined. .The advantages attached to this tract
of land, not generally to be met with, are many
such as good orchards, containing great 'vari-
e'y of the most choice fruits, not only suflici-
ent to supply, the wants of a private family, but
to yield a handsome in-ome by sending the *isr-
pilts to the Richmond market; also, a single
story dwelling house, with five roorns iand two
passages on a floor, with every other necessary
out house for the accommodation of a la ge ,a
mily, all in good order. It is contiguous k, the
lands of .Mr. James Govrn, Col. Trueheteart and
Capt. Win. W;:ii'e.
I wi6all so sell my MERCHANT MILL, with
50 acres of land attached to it; now in com-
plete srder, as it has lately undergone a tho-
rough repair.
I will dispose of the aboveproperty altogether
or divide it, as may be most agreeabel to pur-
chasers; but I think it would be mroost ai'vise-
able to any person that can purchase, to take
the whole establishment as., it stands, to such
a purchaser every s -ommodation will be giv-
entfor seeding a crop this fail. My reason for
wishing io sell is, that I have rr., de a purch'ise
on a diffrr'cnt part of the country, where I in-.
:end removing. I will give an extehsiva cre-
dit on the great es- part of the pu chase money,
(the paym sion on the let of January next.
The land will be shown by my son, Miles
Macrn. For further particulars, enquire of
Mr. Thomas Taylor, of Richmond, or myself.

town being entirely new. and, having gro Wn up
with unprecedented rapidity, it seems neces- -
sery to tate, it is situated 6 miles from the
bay, on the east bank of the Tensa, which is the
longest and he straig' test river leading from
the combined waters of the Alabama and Tom-
bh-bee-it is 6 miles nearer the bay by the
hannel for large vessels, and 10 miles hearer
the up-country by the channels for boats, than
the old town of Mobile; a strip of marsh, about
200 feet wide, skirting the first high bank, be-
yng covered with gravel two feet thick, forms
a complete wharf to 18 feet water; soth!.t all
the deposits pass to and from the stores with.-
out the expense of cartage or wharfage.
The town plat is on two p!ains,ascendng- from
the river halfa mile -o 100 feet elevation- two
miles back it is 300 feet. Out of the second
plain issue 20 copious springs, of as pure water
as any highlands produce. We need only add,
that within nine months, between 70 and 100
stores and houses have been erected. A ship
yard is established fbr building steam boats for
the Mississippi and Alabama rivers. Forty
eight vessels have arrived from Atlantic ports
and New Orleans, and more than $600,000
worth of goods and cotton have been deposited
-finally, this town combines every advantage
to render it the great depot for the extensive
and fertile upper country.

T1HIS elegant estate is situated on the Poto-
mc,16 miles below Alexandria; it is bound-
ed on three sides by the Potomac and 'lohick
creek, and contains nearly 3000 acres of land,
level and fertile, to which are attached six shad
and herring fisheries, two of which command
the river channel. This land will be laid off
in four tracts, so as to have one or more fishe-
ries to each ; these tracts will be again divided
if requisite. This estate is level and beauti-
fully situated, very fertile, and remarkably
healthy. Plaister acts with ani effect equal to
that of any part of Virginia or Pennsylvania.
I have used 500 bushels in twelve months, and
such is its beneficial operation, that, were I to
keep this land, I should considerably increase
the quantity. A manufaclturing mill is distant
about two miles, on a stream navigable for ves-
s ls carrying 1200 bushels of wheat, where the
Baltimore and D)istrict of Columbia prices are
given f.r grain; being bounded on three sides
by wster, a small extent only of fence is necer-
sa-y to enclose thle whole ; it would be admirs-
