person in this town, which had not been taken up'
at the Post Office,, and was of course, at the end'.
of three months, transmitted to the General Post
-Office as a dead letter, was recently returned to the
Post Office here, on account of its containing mo-
ney. The writer stated'that he had, sometime ago,
cheated the person to whom the letter was di-
rected, and enclosed a, five dollar bank' note, as
restitution.and recompence ; advising,- at the
same time, that, if the recipient had cheated any
one, ,he should "do likewise." The receiver
declares he has no kiibwledge of the writer, and'
observes that he has beela-cheated by so many,
he cannot even guess at the individual.

Gentlemen: I should be happy itsom'e of your
subscribers who understand the Hebrew, and
have access to a bible in that language, would be
so good as to inform me whether the vulgate trans-
lation of the 9th v. 2 chap. of Job be correct. The
most common English version I find, is as fol-
lows: Then, said his wife unto him, dost
thou still retain thine integrity ? curse God and
die." But in a Latin vulgate of 1551, and also
1571, I find the following version: adhuc tu
permanes in simplicitate ? benedict Deo et mo-
rere." In another of 1728," adhuc tu retines in-
tegritatem tuam ; benedicendo Deo atque morien.
do." Several Greek versions of the 16th centu-
ry run thus :" alla cipon ti rema cis kurion kai
teleu ta," do but say some word for the Lord and
die ? A French translator of 1687 renders it
thus: El sa femme lui dit; encore retiens tu
ton integrity, beni Dieu and meurs." In all these,
it is bless or something equivalent to it,rather than
curse. But, fiom the reply which Job afterwards
makes to his wife, thou speakest as one of the
foolish women ;" thus, rendered by all the trans-
lators, the inference is irresistible that the word
could not have been bless, but curse, which has of
course been retained in most of the recent versions
of the bible. I find, also, that this was the under-
standing of the Hebrew text from a translation in-
to Greek verse called Threnothriambos, and pub.
lished in 1653.
All' age blasphemei kai tethnathi."
I am, therefore, inclined to believe that the He-
brew word which has been thus variously transla-
ted, must have a double meaning, and that the best
sense has been adopted by the earlier translators
without any reference, to the context. It would,
however, be gratifying to rme, and no doubt to
most of your readers, if some of your learned sub-
scribers would take the trouble to explam tle dif-
ficulty. "G-, W.

The soils of countries characterized as sandy
requiree a particular attention to their natural
growths, and to their-subsoils, to enable us justly
o estimate their strength and their value. These
two points require due consideration in judging
of the soil of Florida where it is sandy. Wher-.
ever there is under the sand a subsoil, or under
soil, of good clay or other earth, the trees, pro-
duced by nature, are of good or great size, and
ire often intermixed or of various kinds. The
lame of Florida, given, it is supposed, from the
appearance of health, vigor, and richness, in the
woods and natural growths, is some evidence of
the existence of a good subsoil, or under soil.
Ploughing up the subsoil and mixing it with the
Sanid, so as to make a loam, is both easy and pro-
The river bottoms, alluvial lands, and particu-
larly the Deltas at the mouths of the rivers, must
be equal in that climate to the production of su-
gar, coffee, cacao, or the chocolate nut, and other
WHest India productions. It has been already
mentioned that the warmth of the Gulf Stream,
driven from the coasts of the Spanish main, in the
latitudes 9 to 16 N. and from the Cartibean sea,
up though the straight between Yucatan and
Cuba towards Mobile Bay, and running, as to its
east division, (roma that bay along the coasts of
Louisiana and Florida, and along the Peninsula
,f Florida to Capes Sable and Florida, and, from
thence, along the east coast ofthe peninsula to the
north thereof and beyond it, has a very material
influence on the atmosphere of the country lately
ceded to us by Spain. The other division of the
Gull Stream,produced by our south coast at Mo-
bile, runs, as the wrecks and drifts prove, west-
ward, receiving the vast fresh stream of the Mis-
sissippli, and carrying it away from the coast of
the Florida peninsula. It is repeated, because it
is very important to the climate of our new pur-
chase, that toe warmth of the Gulf Stream, to be
presumed from the circumstances of its cause, is
fully proved by the thermometer. It is to be pre-
sumed, that it will be, for the same reason, the
better adapted to the manufacture of salt, as
strengthened in its saline quality by the evapora.

go, and much of it was uncleared and uncultivat-
ed, we must perceive that, if a small proportion
of the lands be rich and good enough for sugar,
coffee, and cacao, it must be as beneficial as a
large West India island. The sugar, coffee, and
eaca planters will have abundant land for grass,
grain, ground provisions, cattle, hogs, sheep,fuel,
building, coopeirage, boats, and all other useful
and nr cebss-ry purposes, on very moderate terms,
,o as to enable them to work every acre of their
good soil. They may join to their sugar estates
plantations of coffee,* cotton, olives, grape vines,
dates, oranges, pine apples, figs, and other things,
which are produced on poorer lands in climates
sufficiently warm, and which do not require so
.,,any han's as sugar.
It is presumed that the turtle fishery, for the
meat and for the shell, will be added by our en-
terprizing fkllow-csizens of the eastern states, to
which may be addefdihe profits of the salvage of
vessels, which have suffered shipwreck. It will
he our interest to attract settlements in all the
Florida ports, and along the whole line of its
coasts, by persons of the first nautical and naval
capacities, practice, and experience. Their aid
in checking any present or new spirit of irregu-
lariy, on the ocean and among the keys andt
isilts, will be often important, even in time of
peace, and will be necessary in war. The naval
capacities of Florida must be considered as high-
ly important to the rich and increasing com-
merce and exports of the river Mississippi, and
all the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico, and will
happily increase and strengthen the bonds of
dniien existing between the states on the great
western rivers and those on the Atlantic Ocean.
This will certainly be the case, either as Florida
now stands, or if the legislature shall adopt the
!tan of annexation proposed by the Convention
of Alabamia. The militia system of that rising
and itncreasing state would be constitutionally

FWashington City, 20th Maarch, 1821.
GENTLEMEN: I have noticed with pleasure
that, actuated by a disposition to lay before your
readers all useful information, you have publish-
ed occasionally epitomes of the proceedings of
state Legislatures. I have not, however, disco-
vered that you have noticed any of those of there
late session of the Legislature of Illinois-pro-.
ceedings, gentlemen, which fully exculpate that
State from the often-repeated charge of an inten- c
tion to deprive the war-worn soldier of the pit
tance of land allotted to him by the beneficence'
of his country, and which will prove the more
acceptable to non-resident land holders in that
State,as they must inevitably tend to enhance the
value of lands at least fifty per cent. By the pro-
visions of the relief act, so called, those who were
subject to pay triple taxes, by former laws, andi
those who have had their'lands sold for taxes,
and thereby subjected to 100 per centum, are al-
lowed to pay a single tax any time on or before
the Ist Jan. 1822, with all charges of advertising,
and interest at the rate of six per centum only
per annum, from the time the taxes first became
due. Those who have paid the triple tax, and
those who have redeemed lands sold for taxes,
will be credited on the Auditor's books, on ac-
count of future taxes, for excess over the single
tax, chat ges, and interest.
An act has also passed, making an appropria-
tion to defray the expense of surveying a canal
route, to connect the waters of Lake Michigan
with the Illinois river. Of the practicability of
making a canal, at little expend', n.,ne can doubt
who know that already a partial ,.ne has been
formed across the portage, by dr'_vwing boats over,
which, at particular seasons, fordss navigation
for loaded perogues. Of its advantages all will
be aware who contemplate the growing prospe-
rity of the States of Missouri and illincis, and who
will anticipate the time when a proportion of the
produce of these States will seek a market at
New York, as accessible as that of New Orleans,
and which will affo-d supplies* on better terms
than the latter, and present a more congenial
depot for furs for exportation. This view real-

Mlaniresto of the Portuguese Nation to the Sove-
reigns and stationss of Europe.
The Portuguese nation, animated'by the most
ardent and sincere desire to maintain the politi-
cal and commercial relations, which have united
her hitherto with all the governments and com-
munities of Europe, and having particularly at
heart to continue to merit, in the opinion of the
illustrious men of all countries, the esteem and
consideration which have never been withheld
from the loyal and honorable character of the
Portuguese, has thought it indispensably neces-
sary to offer to the world a succinct, but candid
exposition of the causes that have produced the
memorable events which have just occurred in
Portugal ; of the real spirit which has influenced
the nation, and of the only end to which all the
changes made, or intended to be made, in the in-
ternal structure of the government, are directed :
The Portuguese nation hopes that this exposition,
in correcting the false notions which may have
been formed respecting those events, wiil concili-
ate the kind attention of Sovereigns and People.
All Europe knows the extraordinary circum-
stances which, in 1807, forced H. M. John VI.
then Prince Regent of Portugal, to withdraw
with his royal family to his transatlantic domin-
ions. This measure was then deemed highly
advantageous for the cause of the general liberty
of Europe. No one, however, could fail to dis-
cern the cr'iir .d situation into which Portugal
would be thrown by the absence of her prince-
ulterior occurrences justified the predictions in-
dulgedl on this head.
Portugal, separate-I from her sovereign by
the vast expanse.of the ocean; deprived of all her
wanted resources yielded by her distant posses-
sions, and of the benefits of trade by the blockade
of her ports ; governed by enemies then held to
be invincible-seemed to have reached the term
of her political existence, and to be condemn-
ed never to resume her place among independ-
ent nations.
In this desperate crisis, the heroic inhabitants
of the kingdom lost neither their honor, nor cou-
rage, nor their attachment to their king; of these
neither the pressure of adverse fortune, nor the
immense power of the enemy, could deprive
them. They exerted themselves, in fact,.in the
most energetic manner, as soon as a favorable
opportunity offered. The Portuguese, with the
aid of their allies, recovered, by the most severe
sacrifices, their political existence; restored
with generous loyalty, the throne and the crown
to their monarch; and impartial Europe must
confess (although justice is not always done) that
it owes to them, in great part, the victories since
gained in favor of the freedom and independence
of thrones and nations.
It is more easy to conceive than to delineate
the internal condition of Portugal, in the midst of
circumstances so new, and after efforts so, extra-
ordinary, and so general a convulsion.
The ruin of the country, begun by the emi-
gration ot the inhabitants who followed the
Prince, or who sought to escape the suspicion of
co-operating in the systematic persecution of the
enemy, was aggravated by the too fatal invasions
of 1809 and 1810, and by the losses inevitable in
.an obstinate contest of seven years' duration.
Commerce and industry, which can flourish
only in the shade of peace, and public security
and tranquillity, were not only abandoned, but
seemed annihilated by the unlimited freedom of .
trade allowed to foreign nations in the ports of
Brazil; by the disastrous treaty of 1810 (with
England); by the decay of manufactures ; by
the nearly total destruction of both the mercan-
tile and military marine ; by the absolute want of
protection and encouragement for these two im-
portant sources of national prosperity.
Agriculture, the basis of the wealth and strength
of nations, deprived of the hands which war had
monopolized ; destitute of the capital which feeds
it, and which was often diverted to more press-
ing purposes ; having no longer the vital power
which it had been accustomed to derive from
national industry, and the active circulation re-
sulting from external and internal commerce,-
languished in a fatal lethargy, and our country
presented to the astonishedc-bserver the deplora-
ble picture of misery and famine.
The sensible diminution of the public revenue,
caused by the ruin of the population and the ex-
tinction of commerce and industry ; by the irre-
parable loss of the immense sums which the'ene-
my wrested from the unhappy, Portuguese, and
by the excessive expenses of the war, which ob-
liged the nation to contract new and enormous
debts--gave the mortal blow to public credit, al-
ready shaken by the scandalous malversation of
the treasury agents, as well as by vicious systems
of administration.
If the Portuguese had not cherished for their
prince and his august dynasty a love border-
ing on adoration-if they had not d&,sired to ob-
tain from his justice and goodness alone, the re-
forms and amendments which such a condition
of things imperatively required, it woiu.ld have
Slen very easy for them to assign.limnits to the
royal pwver, and dictate to him conditions con-,
lorm-able to the urgency of -h. :.
But the character of the Portuguese was nrot to
le belied. They prefer ed looking to their prince
'tar all that was wanted, rather than exhibit to
Earope, already dismayed by recent calamilies,
the spectacle of a turbulent and impatient nation,
or to appear to take advantage of circumstances
in order to display a spirit f revolt arnd insub\or-
dination. A i!cnt antd peaceful endurance of
evils was i e rule of their conduct ; confidence
in the virtues of their prince the foundation of
their hopes.
But-and it is painful to declare it-their hopes
have been completely disappointed, and the pa-
tience of the Portuguese reached the point be-
yond which it would not seem possible for that
of a proud and courageous nation to go-a na-
tion penetrated with the sense of its ills. and not
f ignorant of the means of remedying them.
The Portuguese, knowing the heart of their
. Sovereign, flattered themselves that he would
prepare the necessary reform, as he had some-

times encouraged them to hope : but this expec-
tation proved illusory ; the rtinisters of the court
of Rio Janeiro have diverted the mind of the
king from these important cares, and evinced

The Montgomery (Alabama) Republican, of
the 3d inst says, We this day announce the ar-
rival of a boat, [the fennessee Patriot, King,
from East Tennessee, with flour and whiskey,]
the history of which will no doubt seem almost
incredible to strangers. She is a keel boat, 50
feet long, 6 feet beam, 6 feet deep, and is capa-
ble of carrying near 100 barrels. She was built
at West Point, in East Ternessee, where she was
loaded for this placn, and proceeded 100 miles
down the Tennessee river, to the mouth zf the
Hiwasse, thence 65 miles to tihe entrance of the
Wocoa, up the latter a certain distance, when
she was transported (with her cargo) 10 miles by
land to the Connusaga, thence to and down the
Eastonilla, through the Coosa into the Alabama
river-a distance of near 1,000 miles from the

At the Colchester (England) assizes, an in-
dictment was recently preferred against a person
for an assault. It appeared in evidence that the'
plaintiff had attempted to hang himself, and that
the defendant, finding him in that situation, had
cut him down-, tweaked his nose, and struck him
several smart blows om the back, for the purpose
of reviving suspended animation. The jury,
considering there was no malice in the case,
tound a verdict for the defendant.

The Northern Mail,dueat 11 o'clock on Sunday
evening, was detained until the hour of 9 on Mon-
day morning, owing, as we understand, to an acci-
dent that happened to the stage in crossing James
river, at Osborne's. The passage, it is general-
ly known, is effected by means of a flat bottomed
boat, worked from landing to landing by a rope
stretched across. On Sunday night, just as the
boat, after crossing, had reached the southern
bank, and the stage was leaving it for the plat-
form, the rope gave way, by which accident the
two foremost horses were drowned. We hear
of no other damage being sustained.

Serious accident.-We are informed by a gen-
tleman of Richland county, Ohio, that, on the
5th ult. the house of Mr. Win. Brown, of Greeni
township, in the above county, was blown up aby
only fifteen pounds of gunpowder in a keg-and,
shocking to relate, two of his children perished
by the explosion!

The Reduction of the drmny.-Some of our
readers, those at a distance particularly, feel
some interest in the manner in which the reduc-
tion is to take place. We have no official infor-
mation on the subject, but it is generally under-
stood that Major General .i.*.. Brown, and Bri-
gadier Generals Scott and Gaines, (Major .Gen-
erals by breeet,) are to be retained on the new
establishment; and that they are to fomin a Board
to make the necessary selection from the present
officers .of the Army. In the discharge of this
unpleasant duty, many men of merit must be de.-
ranged frou': office. The opportunity, however,
is afforded, in.this sec Ltd selection from the same.
materials, to coninma'i the services of the most
useful, active, and accomplished officers. It is
supposed that the Board of Geueral Officers will
assemble in this city within two weeks.

Subjoined is the answer of the Queen of Great
Britain to the Address trans-litted to her from
the city of New York, in dc...- United States, by
the u.,tives of Great Bi, .nm and Ireland" re-
siding there, Fihe National Advocate is disap-
pointcd.in the style of the Address, which he says
is courtly, tame, a'id spiritless." We think
the answer is a tolerably good answer; it is cer-
tainly a much better one than some of the vapid
productions which she bestowed on her attached
and loyal friends at home. As to the terms -f
the Address to which it is an answer, son m ri-
cordo. We well remember, however,, the sur-
prize, which we yet feel, at the whole proceed-
ng; in which, we earnestly hope, no naturalized
citizen of the United Si i.: had any concern.

My warm thanks are due to the natives of
Great Britain and Ireland, residing in the city of
New York.

I have been denied and still am denied any
mention in the Liturgy of the Establishment; but
this act of uncharitableness toward ds me, will ul-

Queen, whom. it was intended to ruin in public
estimation. A palace has been refused to my re-
quest; but this refusal, though designed to aggra-
vate other iil-i. i'i.. s which I have experienced,
has afflicted me with no other painful sentiment
than that of contemptuous pity for the infatuated
malignity of my adversaries. My residence is,
in fact, more royal than if it were entirely cont.

C....1 '"il.,h to his original plan, the Editor has
spared no pains, trouble, or expense, to render this E-
(.. .. 'i. I ''ir complete as the present advance-
ment of agriculture, gardening, of the familiar arts and
manufactures, as well as the state ofn medical science,
would respectively admit. Many subjects, indeed, might
have been extended wo greater length, and others con-
simerably abridged, had these volumes been peculiarly
calculated for the use of either town or country readers.

submitted to the public includes almost every object
more or less connected with rural, domestic, and animal

In these three small boats, forty-nine persons
were received on board, with so scanty a supply
ofprovisions, that the consequences must have
been almost equally dreadful with the untimely
fate of those left on board, had not a Portuguese
ship from Bahia, bound to Lisbon, most provi-
dentially fallen in with them at day-light, next
morning, and received them on board, in which
they were safely and hospitably conveyed to Lis-
bon, after cruising about the fatal spot till noon,
in hopes of descrying some of the miserable suf-
ferers who might have clung to parts of the
wreck, but without success.
Of a crew consisting of 21 persons, 14 are sa-
ved, including Lieut. Mudge, the agent-Mr.
Fisher, the surgeon-the Master of the ship, and
the second mate-the first mate, in the most feel-
ing manner, refusing to go into the boats, saying
that he would abide the fate of those left on board.
Of the emigrants, (chiefly natives of Scotland,)
consisting in all of 71 men, 24 women, 55 boys,
30 girls, only 10 men, 3 women, 16 boys, and 6
girls are saved.

i"'..,: a London Paper of Jan, 18.
A letter from a passenger in the Abeona gives
the following additional particulars :-
6 Every nerve was exerted in handing water to
the mate and seamen who were down where the
fire broke out; but all proved useless, for they
were driven up in a few minutes by the dense
smoke, and the rapidity with which the fire com-
municated to every surrounding object. In 10
or 15 minutes from the first alarm, the case was
hopeless, the ship being in a perfect blaze from
the mainmast aft, to the lower deck, and from the
extensive heat of the upper one, we momently
expected the fire to penetrate it. The skiff and
two gigs were down, and the long boat almost
high enough for clearing the side, when the
flames, rushing up from the after-hold, commu-
nicated with the main rigging, flew up the mast
like lightning, and blasted every hope of getting
her clear.
To attempt to paint the horror of the scene
at this moment were vain. The shrieks of the
women and children, combined with the furious
element travelling on to devour us, formed a pic-
ture of human misery that must rend the stoutest
heart. The panic & confusion were such, that the
long hboat proved too heavy to be launched by the
few who were sufficiently collected to attend to
the orders given, and on the falling of the main-
yard, she was stove. Seeing now all was over,
and the people were throwing themselves over-
board and into the boats, I jumped over, and was
picked up. A few minutes after I quitted the
wreck, the main and mizen-masts fell-the flames
rapidly advancing forward, drove numbers of the
poor wretches on the bowsprit, where it was our
hard lot to behold them frantic, without being able
to afford them the least assistance. You may
judge how the boats were crammed, when hus-
bands, who had wives and children still clinging
to the wreck, exclaimed against more being re-
We kept close to the wreck till day-light, next
morning, in the hope that any vessel which mighl
be passing, would see the immense body of fire,
which continued raging till about 3 o'clock, next
morning, when every thing disappeared. A lit-
tle before day-break, the carpenter discovered a
vessel close to us. We seized our oars, and were
on board her in a few minutes. She proved to
b e tCondeca da Ponte, Porttguese merchant
ship, from Bahia, bound to Lisbon. After rela-
ting to the Capt. our history, we demanded of
him at what time he had first seen the light, and
learned with astonishment, that they had not seen
it at all, that their own course had brought them
to the very spot, where the boats were lying.
Some of our party instantly ascended the masts,
in the hope of seeing some of our poor absentees
floating on spars, and after intently sweeping the
horizon, and seeing nothing, the Capt. was indu-
ced to cruise about the neighbourhood till noon,
when he said lie could detain the ship no longer.
This dreadful accident was occasioned by
Mr. Duff, the first mate, forgetting his wonted
prudence, in taking the candle out of his lanthorn
to see something more clearly with, when a spark
from it, or the candle itself,fellon some of the com-
bustible matter around. His griet at having been
the cause of such destruction, made him, when
solicited to save his life, decline it. No," he said,
I pity those in the boat the most; for with us, it
will soon be over, but they will be eating each
other in a few days."
', A Mrs. M'Laren, with her husband and four
children, upon the flames advancing, retreated
into the fore channels, when, recollecting that her
husband was a good swimmer, she implored himn
to save his own life, and leave her and the chil-
dren to the fate that awaited them, as he coulo
not avert it; and her wishes were attended to.
Mothers and fathers, apparently regardless of
themselves, caught up their young children and
th-rew them into the boats ; and in one family,
(Barrie's,) the eight juniors are preserved, one
a child only 15 months old, while the noble par-
ents, with their eldest son and daughter, are num-
bered with the dead."
