well for morals and religion.
In 1815 they had so happily returned to the
good old path they were resuming with so
much zeal in the south, the mild means of per.
suasion devised by the counsellors of Catharine
de Medicis What a pity to be stopped in so
beautiful a course !
Public opinion, the laws, and the government,
'require tolerance : every one is at liberty to a-
dore the Deity according to' his own rites ;(7)'
christians are obliged to live as brethren, and to
love each other agreeably to the principles of the
gospel. The clergy have no longer one-fourthof
the whole income of France ; they will be more
holy, being without luxury ; the country priests
only are taken care of! Who knows even whether
very soon they will not apply to them the money
'which is now spent by thie missionaries, who are
endeavoring to convert the savages of our pro-
vinces ? Those missionaries will be respected
as long as they shall speak of nothing else but re-
ligion, morals, and charity ; but they will be
laughed at v whenever they shall perform m inoneries
and pious frauds, and, whenever they shall re-
ceive letters from Heaven.
The pulpit shall not be suffered to become a
political tribune: cardinals will no longer be
found leading armies ; petits collets will no longer
be heroes of gallantry ; curates shall no longer
recite 'the speeches of Panurge' and Paintagruel;
the law will no longer proscribe philosophers, but
it will chastise ill,'>i:i-. It is therefore evident
that all is lost ; but for whom ?

In the following letter, which is a translation
from the original, pul into our possession by Dr.
Torrey, of Balistewn, to whom it is addressed,
it will be seen that the views of the American Co-
lonization Society have excited the attention of
President Boyer, of Hayti.-The reasons which
he offers'for a change in the destination of the un-
fortunate blacks in this country, are plausible, and
beslpeak a feeling, and a generous mind. But
whether they are deservitn- the attention of the
American people, can best be determined by that
benevolent body of men who have set forward1
and organized the Colonization Society.

To Mr. JEssE TotRET, New-York.
Sin : I have received along with the letter which you
have written to me, the work on SLAVER-Y I. TsHE ULNIT-
ED SrATEs, of.which you are the author. The principles
which you develop in it are those of a true philanthro.
pist, and I am pleased to discover the humane views
which have prompted you to publish this work-It
breathes the soundest morality.
The disinterestedness with which philanthropists act,
induces me to-believe that the system of colonizing the
African race is intended solely for their happiness. In
his .case would it not '-.: .'. i r.- .l',t the ir :.ju

beings would here'find a safe asylum, a fertile soil, and
a country which offers as many advantages as Africa,
which, being little known, woilt expose tlem e;o new
dilliculties, as muchi by the aridity of the climate, as the
great labor it would require to render that country a
comfortable residence.,
I play you to believe, Sir, that love of my brethren of
the sance race, together wVith hospitable motives, induc-
es ime to submit to you my ideas on this subject. They
are not guided by any private considerations, nor by a
desire of dictating any change in resolutions which may
have been-already adopted.
I have the honor to salute you, .

Vehement is you are on the subject of blaci
slavery, you denounce-i 'with increased energy'
and eloquence, on account of its demoralizing
teneny. If this -doctrine be truh, there is in

Sprom-i'itory admonition, and compare the inhabi
laits of the slave-bholding states with an equal
number o0 people belonging, to the- least ant
lowest of the European nations;' not'even witi
the people of those two nations, onmil of which, a
a f-'rtr-ner period, not very remote, while spcakin
ol"i s. ,ou stigmatized as I bigotted,' andti the other
as m ferocious.' It is miy pleasire-you, perhaps
miay thiink it my duty, to confie myself with:
the limits of the United States. VWell the con
tinent lies before us. Draw a 'line between th
slavto-holding states and the other states, and their
compare the people of the two sections in point
of honor, courage, patriotism, intelligence, mmo
rals, manners, and temper : to the latter (yo)
willt ascribe no superiority. T hey claim none
nor is any claimed against them. Happily, fo
this nation. the morals of the people depend o0
causes of higher order, and more powerful ope
ration. This. line that you have drawn, neve
occurs to them.(28) -In looking for that purn
virtue, and exalted wisdom, to which the safety
of the nation may be confided, we cast our eye
over the nation at large. Your th.sory, so dog
inatically announced, is never thought of by a ci
tizen here, to whose senses all the evidence nlma
be said to be presented : and it is a fact, whicl
ought not to lihtve escaped the notice of 1ren lik-
you, that the first President of the Revolutionar
Congress, the only Cotmmander in Chilf of thu
iRevolutionary army, the first President of the U
States, the third, the ifom th, and the present Pre
sident of the United States, were ail selected front
slave-holding states, and themselves the owner
of slaves. On this subject there is room for soom,
very interesting speculations, which ,ir. Burk
commenced, and none are niore competent t
continue than you. I have not the talent ; and i
I had, this is no place for the exertion of it. Z.f
business is with the fact, and I repeat that thu
fact is with me. Demoralizing Gentlemen ad
vocating wh!it thuy suppose to be the cause o
hul m;iy, ma:y say any thing, and forget ati
thbig. They c:al forget in a nmonmeit the great
est nations .:O;i ever existed : greater than ani
thiCt now exisi: .itions, among whom education
was conducted by philosophers, and not, as iu
Europe, by priests priests, who have piously
contrived to tC'ke possession of man as soon as hi
is born. iand lnev.ir to quit theirI hlud until -thr-
have laid him in the grave. I ask you, then, i
you wished to hold up. as an example to ysou
countrymen or to the world, an individual of thi
highest dignity, distingul.-hed by every virtue and
every quaiiy which render a ln,in great and hit
country illitstrious, where would you i m ,li.m
turn you'- eyes ? Would you pause for a momen-
.among the priest-worn people of Et ope,
would you go at once to Greece and Rome
states in which slavery existed, in a degree, o
which slave-holders of the present day can form
no conception.(2t9)
I shall not pur:iue this subject fai-ther. For a
coir.piete anso er to the wrie-ir (Mr. Jeffersoina
whom you have quoted, if thle answer alrea-ly gi.
ven be not sufficient, 1 ref.-r youth to the S1th and
14th chapters ofi Aratori : a practical man, who,
having, by industry and agricultural skill, em-
ployed upon a very large scale, made ten blades
of grass to grow where one only could be found
before, has done more good than all the philan-
thtropists now living in the world.put together.(30)
To him I refer you. 1 will cause these chapters
to be repulHlished here. They will stand as good
a chance to reach you as this address.

to you that. if you ,,,ish again to quote the illus-

- an allusion has been- made to the massacre at

- sent a subject to us in" every light, and we see at

s some form, existed in evi.ry part of Europe, in-
e eluding Great Britain ? (32) That they are equal-
e ly silent now with respect to the slavery that still
o prevails in a great portion of that quarter of the

I to be white ? That black slavery, -which has ex

and at 7 the- jury returned a verdict of man-,
Mr. Drysdale opened the argumenton the part
of the state, with much learning arnd eloquence.
The council for the -prisoner, Messrs. DLLyo'n,
Wilde, Charlton, Nichol, Shefiall, Cuyier, and
Walker, conducted the defence with great abili-
ty; and perhaps the eloquence displayed by them,,
severally, has never been surpassed on a similar
iir. Law, solicitor general's reply, did equal
honor to his head and his heart ; anUd whilst he
vigorously met and answered the arguments of

quence and learning, to establish the charge ex-
hibited by the inditment, lie could not avoid e
vincing occasionally .he feelings oif the man.
The prisoner, previous o the charge of the
court, begged ieave to address the jntry, which
was immediately assented to by his honor. His
address was eloquent and ab'ecting, and manifest-

With the abrive interlineations, which to have
inserted would have been unnecessary redundan-
cy, it appears that nothing was said in the Report
respecting the Philadelphia Banks, nor any allu-
sion intended to them, except in the first sei'tence
of the patr'graph above quoted.
However, perhaps, after all, we are mistaken,
as language is capable of various constructions',
and a .i..., .,,i construction has actually been put
on the paragraph by a writer in this paper, under
the signature of Philo-HIono, which it has been
thought necessary to refute by a formal state-
ment under the signature of eight Cashiers of
Banks in the City of Philadelphia.

.[We copy, with much pleasure, firsa sthe Franklin I. -

-eflects as nulcht credit, on the writer as'on the work. r
To understand this remark, it should be lknowxAo our a
r.aIders, as it is to us, that a bitter p-olitical ainimosity ex-
ists between Mr. Binns (as the Editor of the Demoociratic
Press) and the Editors of the paper from which the fl- c
lowing' is copied : 5
The new print of the Declaratitn of Inde-
pendence, published by J. 'iii-'. reflects great
credit on the various artists who executed the
work. We bave seen.nothing of the kind stupe

Great Hunting.-A party of ten young gen-
tlemen of Boscavwen, N. 1-1 on the Ist inst. made
a hunting party in the nceighborboring woods, and
returned at twilight, with sixteen lhuidred and
sixty five grey and red squirrels, heath-cocks,
hawks, owls, ducks, partricges, crows, rabbits,
muskrats, minks, hedge-hogs, foxes, and otters.
"This. (adds the official account) vastly exceeds
all former hunting in Boscawen, and we believe
it would place even the sharp-shooters of the west
in a quandary."

The N 'tirn i Ii,:ellh,-ri.: i ifrfrin-, us that in
*New York 133 bushels of Indian corn hage been
gthered this.year from on. acre ; and 714 bush-
els of potatoes from one acre. This has led to
the following statistical facts:
In 1817. the export of cotton from the United
Stares was (85,649,328 lbs.) nrore than eighty
fAe million. One acre yields,,at a moderate es-
timat, 250 lbs. of clean cotton. This whole ex-
port, therefore, is the product of only 535 square
miles : this is less th n the 108th part of Georgia,
and less than the 520th part of the cotton regions
of the United States. *
The maxiimum export of rice was 7*29 tier-
ces, (irk 1790,)or (43 997,400 Ilbs.) nearly forty-
four million pounds This, on anaverag crop,
is the produce of only sixty \five "quar miles,
which is less than the 440th part or South Caroli-
na, and less'than twa-thirds of the District ofCo-
lumbia. '
The ia.cinSil, export of tobacco was 12,428
.o'g *hcads, in 1791. A 't.~.l':,d is about onel
thousand weight ; and, on average, one acre i-lil
yield one hogshead. *The export, therefore, wasjl
the product of about 176 squae miles, which is
less than the S36S part of Vi' jna. Bach of the
97 counties of that sate contains, on an average,
more than 659 square .miles, viz: more than
three times the qugatity of land which furnished
the above export.
lSuch~s, g ,r..r% ly.,iqe k fvl" 1ii1.\3 ifthe equinoxial
regions of America,tihat all the sugar consumed
in France, estimated at twenty million kilogram-
ines, about fifty-four million pounds,) may bfe

Indian OMonument.-On the 27th ult. the
Northern Missionary Society erected a monu-
ruent, near Hamilton College, in N. York, to per-
petuate the memory of Schenando, an Indian
Chief of the Oneida Tribe. Thecercniony was
attended by a committee from the Society, a de-
putation from the Oneida nation, the members of
the college, relatives of the deceased, ,&c. The
subject of this distinguished honor died in March,
1816, aged 100 years. He is described as hav-
ing taken a part in the war which secured the Ca..
nadas to the crown of Great Britain, and at the
resolution, as an active partizan on the side of
the colonies-,-as a wise, brave, eloquent, and
christian chief of his nation. It is -believed that
this is the first time, since white men set their
feet on Indian patrimony, that they lhave summon-
ed the formerdlords of the soil to witness such an.
extraordinary 'c:ummenmoration.-[Pol. Index.

that they shouldoreceive the solemn attention to
which they are fairly entitled, and that, during the
ardor of eontirxversy, and the c'-,il ct of opinion,
which may be expected, they shliotld never be lost

this subjects not one of every day,occurrence ;
but one in which, not only those of the present
age, but future geneiations, have a most import.
ant stake. 'When approalcing it, personal feel-

*y, she marched shamelessly forward, with the
spirit of* fiend, to the attainment.of licr abomi-
nable purpose. The lives of the innocent and
unprotected were sacrifmed without compunc-
tion, and their expiring groans awakened no other
.regret than that excited by pecuniary loss. There
was, however, a time, when the abomination w as

rectly the reverse~thi; and we should deserve
the commiseration, if not the contemptpf the ci-
vilized world, ifthe lesson of experience afforded
by it should be lost upon us. Congress will soon

fearful apprehensions may not 'justly be enter-
t.rici, antidt .:. what an abyss o destruction we
shall rapidly hasten. If the odious privilege
which is solicited should be granted to Missouri;
we may anticipate alike result as it respects all
her younger sisters; and Slavery will soon obtain
an overwhelming preponderance in these United
Stexcs. Should this gloomy prospect be realized,
would it be extravagant or irrational to suppose,
from the spirit already exhibited, and the princi-
ples already publicly avowed, in certain quarters,
that the-greatest of all abominations, the Slave
Trade, would, at a period not very remote, be a-
train restored and re-establisht d in the land. This
is not among possible events, merely, but, on the
contrary, altogether probable. Would it not,
therefore, be moral insanity, of the most lamenta-
ble character, to slumber on the brink of such a
precipice ? .
Every Member of Congress should, therefore,
be profoundly impressed,with a due sense of the
unparalleled responsibility which,,on such an oc-
casion, attaches to his station. He should de.
voutly, and earnestly, and humbly, pray for wis-
dom from above, to. enlighten his mind, strength-
en and fortify his virtuous principles, and furnish
him with a proper elevation of sentiment. He
should mentally utter, with sincerity and with
truth, a petition similar to that of the immortal
Milton :
What in me is dark
illuminte ; what is low, raise :aid support.
Those rnenmbers, whose constituents are pro.
videntially and constitutionally exempted trom

to act with perfect unanimity. They should thei e-
fore present a firm, temperate, but undaunted
phalanx, determined to use any exertion, or make
any sacrifice, called for by their country. .It.is al-
so confidently expected that many, from other
sections of the Uniots, will be found, possessing
sufficient honesty and independence, to unite
heart and hand in shielding from destruction the
fair fabric of our Ibl I tI:, and in transmittunig to
the remotest posterity the blessintigs of freedom
Thie subject, to.use'the emphatic language of
Mr..Walsh,' calls for the unanimous agency' of
all good citizens. Let all, therefore, solemunly de-

manner, to convey waver in a solid column from the en-
gine immediately to the fire ; a mode, the importance of
which will be readily perceived by those who are aware
that water,' thrown from a distant engine, and fal~lng
upon the fire in the form of spray, instead of extinguish-
