FRIDAY, MARCH 16.

Amongst the oddest reasons, perhaps, ever
given for discontinuing a. subscription to a news-
paper, is that given by one of our subscribers in
New Jersey, who directs his paper to be stop-
ped, because. the Prcc-edning, of Congress have
afforded him no satisfaction of late."
Speaking of the Proceedings of Congress re
minds us, that some of our editorial friends
have censured us as having spoken in decided
praise of the last Co'ngress. Had we done so,
we do not know that it would have been an un-
pardonable sin, either against truth or proprie-
ty. But what we actually said was this: that,
the memory of the lat (C.ungresswould be valued
according to the merit of what it had done, and
not to the demerit of its omissions ; and that, of
what it had done, much was to be approved, and
little to be blamed. What we have said we feel
:no inclination to retract. The same charity, it
appears to' us, ought to be extended to Congress
which, in private life, is accorded to every indi-
vidual, What figure would any of us make in this
world, if we were held accountable to human tri-
bunals for all the good we have left. undone, as
well'as for the evil we have done? There is not a
man among tis, who has not left undone enough
good to entitle him to a residence in the Peniten-
tiary, if punishment could be annexed to offences
of that description. It is for what we actually do
thatwe are amenable to, others; and some men
might be glad to have it said of them, as we have
said of the last Congress,. that, during the brief
term of their existence, they have done much to
praise, and little to condemn.

A letter from the veteran Republican, Charles
Pinckney, written in the Representatives' Hall,
to his friend in Charleston, just after the recent
dsettlement-a of thno '-qs" e ..i1e.~..s, sn, plnhlish-
ed in the City Gazette, has the. following re-
mark :
c, Here let me add, too much praise cannot be
given to those honorable and truly independent
Members from the Eastern and Northern states,
who joined us in thus protecting the true inter-
ests of their country, and for ever preserving the
noble fabric of our Union and government. In-
stead of meeting the disapprobation of their con-
stituents, I can have no doubt they will be ulti-
mately greatly honored and respected for the
high-minded and independent votes they have
given .on this all-important and eventful ques-
tion."
This is the view of the conduct of those men
which is entertained, we dare say .without excep-
tion, by the surviving framers of the Constitution
of the United States. We hope never to see the
day when the opinions of such men are not res-
pected.

Thomas Settle, a Representative in Congress
from the State of North Carolina, has declined a
re-election. .

TO THE EDITORS.
Gentlemen : will thank you to call the public
attention not merely to the Ides of March, but to
the whdle month. Every thing is, at this sea-
son, peculiarly inflammable. Sat verbum sapi-
cnti.

The steamboat Dolphin arrived at Nashville,
Tenn. on the 21st of February, from Pittsburg,
after performing a passage of 1S00 miles in seven
days and one hour, opposed most of the time by
strong head winds and a rapid current for 200
miles up the Cumberland river.

PHILADELPHIA, MARCtH 13.
Mr. Forbes has arrived at Buenos Ayres from
the United States. His reception from the pab-
iic authorities and private citizens of that place,
was very flattering to our countrymen.

VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE.

The Eleventh Commandment.
in the debate on Mr. Selden's resolutions, (the
Citation question,) an advocate of the measure
having stated that Mr. Madison's resolutions of
1799 ought to be received as the political Bible'
of this country : ,
Mr. Blackburn said he hoped the country had
not yet arrived at such a state of moral turt pitude
and degradation as to recognize any other stand-
ard of morals than that to be found in the Scrip-
tures orthe Old and New Testaments, and epito-
mized in the decalogue ; but.if permitted, with-
out presumption or profanity, he would say that,
taking our political relations into view, there
ought to be an eleventh commandment, in these
words : Thou shaltnot, nor shall thy wife, thy
son or thy daughter, thy man servant or thy maid
servant, the stranger, or sojourner, within thy
gates, dare in any wise to mention or hint at a
dissolution of the Union." And then, in a style
peculiar to himself, went on to depict the dan.-
g'rs and hJrrors of a dissolution.


THE GENERAL POST OFFICE.

Mfesrs. Gales Seaton :
I was irforni.cl by a portion of the com-
mittee of Investigation,, that the annexed docu-
ment was to have formed a part of their report,
Presuming that some mistake had caused the
omission, I addressed a note to the Clerk of the
House of Representatives upon the subject, a
copy of whose reply is annexed. I likewise ad-
dressed a note to the printers of Congress upon
the same subject, whose reply is likewise annex-
ed. I shall write to the chairman, requesting
him to cause it to be restored to the proper files.
I deem it due to justice to give the Whole publi-
city in your paper, and I will thank you to pub-
lish it without delay. .
With great respect, your obedient -e- a:in .-

Sin: Y..im .t l- i n,,.,ning is before me ; in answer"
to which I l,.oe the Ih.sou to state, that the rcpust ,r ,.j.
by Mr. Phelps, on Saturday evening, was received and
ordered to lie on the table, (the reading having been
dispensed with.) and the report and accompanying pa-
pers ordered to be printed. I never opened the papers,
and therefore can only say, that, if the letter alluded to
formed part of the documents, it will be found with the
report, which is yet in the hands of Messrs. Gales &
Seaton, as printers to the House of Representatives of
the United States.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your hum-
ble servant, THO. DOUGHERTY, Cl'k.,

Washington, Tarch 6,1821.
There was Tio letter from the Post Master General,
accompanying the second report of the Committee of
investigation, as delivered, at the office of the Clerk of
the House of Representatives, to the undersigned.
GALES & SEATON.

General Post Office,
March 3d, 1821.
Hon. E. PHELFS, Chairman of the
Committee to Investigate the
concerns of the General Post Office :
Sit : It was stated to the committee, in my
previous verbal cornlimunications, that, owing to
the state of war and other circumstances, the con-
tracts for carrying the mail between Richmond
and New York, and some others, were partially
vacated by my predecessor in 1813, and ne,v a-
greements were entered into, making adequate
compensation for the service.
It seemed to be considered in my conversation
with the committee, that the route from Wash-
ington to Fredericksburg was, on account of the
increased pay to Col. Tayloc, the strongest case,
and that was taken as a sample for investigation.
My remarks in relation to that route apply in
extenso to' all the others, with the exception of
an .iddiiondal tinrl pier ecl ier. c-r Fredericks-
t'u oiI '!l I -i .-ri u ,.llr; I nh1 >m
ville and Staunton. I am now advised that an-
other portion of these routes has been started in
the committee at this late hour, and that it con-
tains the aggregate payments for carrying the
mail on the routes from this to Fredericksburg,
already discussed and reported on, with that of
four or five other routes, and that those are con-
trasted with the aggregate of the payments, that
might have been made in several years, if the
contracts had hnot been vacated. But it has al-
ready been shewn, that the carriage of the mail,
according to the contracts, was not then satisfac-
tory to the public ; and it is difficult to perceive
the utility of contrasting an operation which an-
swers its object with one which has become use-
less. The accumulation of the amount of ex-
penditure on many routes, for several years,
serves to make a great sum, but by no means
shews its disproportion to its real worth.
But it seems we must at this late hour recur
to first principles; and the chairman has asked if
I had a right to alter contracts. The Postmas-
ter General has by law the power of causing the
public mails to be transported in such manner as
he shall deem expedient and most promotive of
the public interest. The law declares, "that he
shall provide for the carriage of the mail on
" all post roads that are or may be established by
" law, and as often as he, having regard to the
, productiveness thereof, and other circumstan-
c ces, may think proper." And, in the schedule
of the contracts, provision is made for any alter-
atin which the Postmaster General shall direct.
In a country like this, where new villages,
towns,counties,& even states,arecontinuallyrising,
the post office arrangements cannot be perma-
nent,butmust vary with the exigency ofthe times.
It was under this authority, and the then ex-
isting circumstances of the nation, that my prede-
cessor made the alteration, which produced the
enlargement of expenditure.
When I afterwards came into the superinten-
dency of the department, I did not deem it de-
corous or expedient to annul the arrangement of
my predecessor, supported as he was, in that ar-
rangement, by the highest authorities of the na-
tion. But if I had, it would not have been prac-
ticable on this route, even after the return of
peace; for, as I had stated in my communication
to the former committee of Investigation, a Steam
Boat had been established between this place and
Fredericksburg.
The price of conveying the mail by contract
was predicated on its being carried in stages, to
be supported by passengers. This price Was al-
together below the cxpence of carrying it in cur-
ricles. '*The establishment of the Steam Boat
took away the passengers, and of course a sup-
port for the stages. They have not run since, ex-
cepting for a short time in the winter, when they
cannot carry the mail. The establishment of
the steam boat applied with like injury to the
stages running between Fredericksbur'g and Rich-
mond; for the Steamni Boat ran to suit its own con-
venience, and not so as to throw its passengers
into a line of stages that could carry the mail;
and no alteration could be made in the arrange-
ment of the mail to suit that object without pro-
ducing an inconvenience to the large cities from
which most of the revenue olf' the establishment
was derived. But, if thie contracts had not been
vacated in the beginning, uK, material advantage


could have been derived from it, or Itie proprie- .. THE CITY HALL.

SATURDAY, MARCH 17.

Florida -The Legislature of Louisiana seems
to have been disposed to have put its veto
on the Florida Treaty, had not the President
and the Senate of the jUnited States been too
quick for them. The following resolution was
reported, in the House of Representatives, by the
committee on so much of the Message of the
Governor as related to that subject :
Be it resolved by the Senate andi House of fle-
presentatives of Louisiana in General AIssembly
convened, That the Florida Treaty has no equali-
ty for its basis, ought dot to have.been concluded,
and should not be ratified by the Senate of the
United States; that it has not been sanctioned
according to customary forms, and that the Sen-
ate of the United States is no longer bound in du-
ty, honor, or good faith, to carry it into effect; and
that copies of the foregoing be forwarded to our
Senators and Reiresentative in Congress.
Not to speak of the improper intrusion here
proposed by the government of the State of Lou-
isiana, on the powers exclusively delegated to the
general government, it dues excite our special
wonder, that LOUISIANA, of all the States in the
Union, should have undertaken to protest against
a Treaty, which has done that for the security of
Louisiana and "of the commerce of the Gulf of
Mexico, without which both must have been
ever held at the precarious tenure ofdependence
on the good or ill will, or on the good or ill tem-
per,.of the most petty naval power. We do not
like to see this querulous disposition in the Legis-
lature of Louisiana, the State which owes to the
liberality of the' Union so much-even the boon
of liberty itself. Moreover, as a general remark,
if the States would have their true rights un-
questioned and respected, that object would be
,best assured by respecting those of the Federal
government, and bv refraining from attempts to
defeat or, control their exercise.
On the subject of Jf'rlit;c'it.,i,, too, great com-
plaint is made, from the 'same quarter, against
the general government, for having done so little
in 'this way for the defence of the shores of Lou-
isiana ; whilst the iIct is, that, by a vote of the
IH-ouse of Representatives of the United States,
almost equivalent to a direct vote of censur', the
Executive, has been intelligibly told, you have
-.Pprn .riaiti and intend further to appropriate
three times as much money as you ought to ap-
ply to that very object. We do not agree with
the House of Representatives in this sentiment,
'On the contrary, we directly dissent from it, aid
sincerely regret that the appropriation was re-
fused : but we mention it to shew that a proper
sense is not-entertained, by a part at least of
he lc*:slat...i i of Louisiana, of the frank and gen-
,erous disposition of the present administration of
the government towasI~ra that action ,C our

:A, ONAL IN'iELLIGENCER.

DECISION OF TilE SUPREME COURT.

Cohens vs. The State of Virginia.
This case was stated in the opinion given on the mo-
thon for dismissing the writ of error for want ofjurisdic-
tion in the court. It now comes on to be decided on 'hi
queiion whether the borough court of Norfolk, in over-
ruling the defence set up ., l i the act of Congress, has
misconstrued tihat act. .i.t these words:
The said corporation shall have fall power to autho-
rize the drawing of lotteries for effecting any important
improve r. r. inr the city, which the ordinary funds or re.
venue tl-r. ..t will not accomplish : Provided, that the
sum to be raised in each year shall no, exceed the amount
of 1U,000 dollars: And provided, also, that the object
for which the money is intended to be raised shall be
first submitted to the President of the United States, and
shall be approved of by !lim."
Two questions arise on this act.
1st. Does it purport to authorize the corporation to
force the sale of these lottery tickets in states where
such sales may be prohibited by law If, it does,
2d. Is the law constitutional ?
If the first question be answered in the affirmative, it
will become necessary to consider the second. If it
should be answered in the *,.. ; .. it will be unneces-,
sary, and consequently improper, to pursue any inqui-
ries, which would then be merely speculative, respect-
*, thi- power of Congress in the case.
I, inquiring into thie extent of the power granted to
the corporation of Washington,e we must first examine
the wo 4" .l--i' I1 it. We find in them no expression
which :..-.- Lbe, ,.1 th '1,,;,a of the,city. The powers
granted are all of them local in their nature, and all of
them such as would, in the common course of things, if
not necessarily, be exercised within the city. The sub-
ject on which Congress wasemployed when framing this
act was a '-1 ).'- J t: ii. was not the establishment of
lottery, .' .., .'. of a corporate body for the
manageme., ..I 0e ,,'-r,. I affairs of the city, for its in-
ternal government; for its police. Congress must have
considered itself ,. d-_l. id, ., to this corporate body
powers for these ..'i1..-:... t:,,i these objects solely.
in delegating these powers, therefore, it seems reasona-
ble to suppose thatthe mind of the legislature was di-
rected to the city alone, to the action of the being they
were creating within the city, and not to any extra-terri-
torial operations. in describing the powers of such a
being, no words of limitation need be used. They are
limited by the subject: But, if it be intended to give its
acts a binding efficacy beyond the natural limits of its
power, and within the jurisdiction of a distinct power,
we should expect to find, in the language of the incor-
poratiug act, some .. ...I- .. ,.:. .,i, such intentions.
Vyithnit such words, we cannot suppose that Congress
designed to give to the acts of the <.o. ..-. v,.ri .'.,
other effect, beyond its limits, than attends every act
having the sanction of local law, when any thing depends
upon it wN+ch is to be transacted elsewhere.
If this would be the reasonable construction of cor-
porate powers generally, it is more especially proper in
a case where an attempt is made so-to exercise those
powers as to control and limit the penal laws of a state.
This is an operation which was not, we think, in the con-
templadon of the legislature while incorporating the City
of lVa,-hi 'on.
',.. wi' re with the penal laws of a state,where tli.:'
are not levelled against the legitimate powers of the
Union, but have for their sole object the internal go-
vernment of the country, is a very serious measure,

.,..,, .. l r.. .' ..- .. .. li, and the inten-
tion woutd be clearly anc .,. .,.. p'. .- pressed.
An act, such- as that 'I.t **.---' -1 .i ., ought not,
we think, to be so construed as to imply this intention,
unless its provisions were such as to render the construc-
tion inevitable.
We do not think it -e', 1 t,..- corporate power in
question that it should be exercised out of the city,
Could the lottery be drawn in any state of the Union?
oes the corporate power to authorize the drawing of a
lottery imply a power to authorize its being drawn with-
out the jurisdiction of a corporation, in a place where it
.may be [.i-.oil ii... 1 by law? This, we think, would
:ir.:.-l, be asserted. And what clear legal distinction
can be taken between a power to draw a lottery in a
place Ih..h'-. k L- pi.lhl_..t.l i., law, and a power to es-
tablis'. ,,,i',: h.,r I-e u l >.'t tickets in a place where

ance, 'vi i 111 r-. : ..'.*: 1i ti., b-,- ,,Tplied.
Tha 'i.- I *..- ; .. .. ,u ill i1 u' i. : ,,i every part of the
United States might facilitate their sale, is not to be de-
nied i but it does not follow that C'irre- designed for
the i- .ri; *.:: f ir..: i, h..,:rease.l i .:i. to overrule

ifigt. t.he grei r *' *.-.*i..- .s .. the nation, visited 6y in-
dividuals from every part of 'the Union, tickets may be
freely sold to all who are willing to purchase. Can it
be affirmed tl.at this is so limited a market, that the
incorporating act must be extended beyond its words,
and made to conflict -with the internal police of the states,
unless it be construed to give a more extensive market?
It has been said that the states cannot make it unlaw-
ful to buy that which Congress has made it lawful to sell.
This proposition is not denied; and therefore the vali-
dity of a law punishing a citizen of Virginia for purchas-
ing a ticket in the city of Washington might %- .iil.,
drawn into question. Such a law would be a direct at-
tempt to counteract and defeat a measure authorized by
the United States. : But a law to punish the sale of lot-
tery tickets in Virginia is ofa different character. Before
we can impeach its validity, we must enquire whether
Congressintended to empower this corporation to do
tany act within a state which the laws of that state might
prohibit.
:in -addition to the very important circumstance, that
the act contains no words indicating such intention, and
that this extensive construction is not essential to the
execution of the corporate power, the court cannot re-.
sist the conviction, that the *intention ascribed to this
act, had it existed, would have been executed by very
different means from those which have been employed.
Had Congress intended to establish lottery for those
improvements in the city which are deemed national,
the lottery itself would have become the.subject of le-
gislative consideration. It would be organized by law,
and agents'for its execution would be appointed by the
President, or in'such other'manner as the law might di-
rect. If such agents were to act out of the District,
there would be probably some provision made for such
a state of things, and in making such provisions Congress
would examine its power to make them. The whole
subject would be under the control of the government,
or of persons appointed by the government.
But in this case no lottery is established by law, no con.-
trol is exercised by :the government over any which
may be established. The lottery emanates from a'cor-
porate power. The corpora ion may authorize or not
authorize it, and may select the purposes to which the
proceeds are to be applied. I i.. rp.i t.ii.i, ;- a being
intended fir local objects onli. A!l ii ,:p4-:],ti.-, are
limited to the city. This, as well as.every other law it is
capable of making, is a by-law, and, from its nature, is
only co extensive with the city. It is not probable that
such ian agent would be employed in the execution of a
lottery establish .d by C .-,g ., but when itacts, not as
'lie ---en' ,'r carrvyiig i', .... *.: a lottery established by
.u iog e--. u' in its own corporate capacity, fromits own
corporate powers, it is reasonable to suppose that ib- act
was intended to partake of the nature of that capacity
and of those powers; and, like all its other acts, be
merely local in its nature.
The proceeds of these lotteries are to come in aid of
the revenues of the city. These revenues are raised by
laws whose operation is entirely local, and for objects
which are also local; for, no person will suppose that
the President's house, the Capitol, the Navy Yard, or
other public institution, was to be benefitted by the..e
lotteries, or was to form a charge on the city revenue,


Coming in aid of the city revenue, they are of tlhe same
character with it; the mere creature of a corporate
power.
SThe circumstances that the lottery cannot be drawn
without the permission of the President, and that thi, re-
source is to be used only for important improvements,
have been relied on as giving to this corporate power a
more extensive operation than is given to those with
which it is associated. We do not think so.
