Mr. C. was desirous that the -ibj:ct be taken

the principle on which the apportionment should
be based, should be fully examined and delibep.r-
ately settled. The legislatures of several of the

Resolved, That the committee on the Public Lands be
instructed to enquire into the expediency of extending
the provisions of the 1st section.of the act of the 2d of
March last, entitled An act for the relief of the pur-
chase'rs of the public lands prior to the 1st day of July,
1820,' to the 30th of Sceptemb4r, 1822.
latter deemed it their province to sustain.
By referring to the duties of the standing
committee, it would seem to be no great or
unwarrantable assumption of jurisdictionrto ex-
ercise over all those cases which it would seem
to be the object to refer to the select committee.
It is made the duty of said committee on Pen-
sions and Revolutionary Claims to take intocon-
sideration all such petitions and master or things
touching military pensions, and also claims and
demarids u.rri.riarung in the Revolutionary ,,War,
,or arming thetefro7zei --*-,+,ail be prodstaiit,, or
tshallor may ti eie ir, question, and be rererrtd
to them by the Ii use ; and to report their opi-
nion thereupon." This seems to give them ju-
risdiction in all cases that have arisen, or may
arise, out of the act of 1818-and that a. t,it \%i,l be
noted, grew out of a recommendation of the Ex
ecutiVe in 1817, which led to the appointment
of a select committee on the subje ct. Mr.
T. concurred in opinion'with the honorable gen-
tleman front Viriiiia., (Mr. Alcximdr,) as ex-
pressed yesterday, that it was to be. hoped and
presumed that the time had.arrived in which nri
necessi'ty existed for the appointment of an addi-
tional committee. And he felt peculiar confi
dence on this subject, from the knowledge which
he possessed, in common with this House and
the cosntry,of the industry and abilitywith which
the chair of that committee was filled, and the
faithfulness with which its duties would be dis-
Mr. Rhea felt himself under great obligations
to the honorable member from New York, for
the compliment which he had been pleased to
pass upon the manner in which the duties of the
Chairman of the Coinmittee on Revolutionary
Services and Pensions had been performed. 1.--
perhaps the value of the compliment would have
been equally appreciste'l, fad it been unattended
with the 1 ad of a'dditi'inal duties w;,i h the hon.
gentleman had seented desirous to attach to it.
Mr. R. was disposed to perform:; his full share of
'he labours which the exigencies of the nation
demanded of their representatives-but he con-
ceived that all the members of that house came
hither with ai willingness, and subject to the du-
ty :f performing their equal portion of the public
business. And he could truly say that the duties
1of the committee of which he had the honor to be
chairman were arduous-without and aside from
those burthens which the refusal of this mo-
i-'n w'.,.!- necessarily imprise upon them.
If the motion he haid the honor to submit were
rejected, he felt himself bound frankly to say that
it would not, in his opinion, be in the power of
.the c;-mmittee on Revolutionary Claims and Pen-
sions to perform these extra duties. The can-
sequence would be, that the petitions preferred
on that subject would necessarily be postponed ;
and he need not add, that in such case a delay was
tantamount to a denial oi' justice. It would cer-
tainly be expected of the committee that they
should attend to their appropriate business before
they took up that which came indirectly and by
implication within their cognizance : and he
could assure the honorable gentleman that a
faithful and proper attention to the former would
necessarily preclude the latter. He therefore ho-
ped that, on further reflection, the motion would

The annual communications were received
from the Auditor and Treasurer-the first was
ordered to be printed. From the Auditor's
statement it appears, that on the 1st of October-
last, there w.ts a balance in theTreasury of 9 140,-

The Auditor also transmitted with his letter
an e/tbmate of the expenses of the Commonwealth
and of the probable receipts into the Treasury
during the year ending the 30th September next.
He states that, m notwithstanding a reduction of
25 per cent in the land and property tax, it is
calculated that on the 1st October iext, there
will berlin 'the treasury after defraying, the cur-
rent charges of government at least the sum of
$44,662 47 cents. When it is recollected that
this estimate is exclusive of ant nmoteks which
may be recovered from the f'.,'i-er T 'licasurer
and his securities, and is likewise independent of
the large arrears d!ue from the county of Norfolk,
it is a subject of congratulation that the finances
of the state are in so prosperous a condition."
The following is the report which has been
made in the House of Representatives of the state
of Kentucky, on the subject of Public Lands:
The committee to whom was referred thie communi-
cations from the legislature of the states of Maryland and
New Hampshire, ask leave to report :
That the communications submitted to them embrace
reports and resolutions theretipon, adopted by the legis.
latures of those states, and the objects of which are to
direct the att nation of Congress and the Legislatures of
the several states of the Union, to the national lands, as
a source from which appropriations for the purposes of
education may with justice be cltnned by those states
for which no such appropriations have yet been made.
Your committee, hig-ly sensible of the imporiUnce of
the fact, that tie most effectual means of achieving or
perpetuating uim liberties of any country, is to enlighten
thie minds ofits citizens by system of education adapted
to the means of the most extensive class of its popula-
tion ; and alive to any just means, within their power,
for tile advancement of this ;great object, no. only within
their own state, but alike to all the members of the gr-eat
political family) of which they are a part, and for whose
common interestt they are thus united-have, with much
interest, examined the facts stated, and ihe arguments
used, in said reports, and do not hesitate ,o concnr in the
opinions therein expressed, that the national lands are
strictly a national fuan, and, in just proportions, the
property of all the states of the LUnion; ard that, from
the extent and nature of the fiud, appropriations may,
with great propriety, be extended to all the states of the
It is deemed unnecessary, in a report of this kind, to
enter at large into all the arguments that mnigli be used
to establish the opinion above expressed. A few of the
facts whmih have presented themselves ia the investiga-
tion of this subject are submitted.
It is ascertained, that all the states and territories
whose waters fall into the Mississippi have been amply
provided ibr by the laws of Congress relating to the sur-
vey and sale of the public lands, except the state of
Why those appropriations should have stopped short
of Kentucky, your committee are not able to see, espe.
cially when they take into consideration its situation in
relation to the other states of thehUnion ; the contest it
has maintained in establishing itself, protecting at the
same time the western borders of the old states, and
extending the more northern and western settlements.
Kentucky long stood alone in a forest of almost bound-
less extent, separated ft-om her parent settlements by
extensive ranges of mountains and fit receptacles for her
savage enemies, and by which she was cut off'from the
succor, and almost from the knowledge, of her friends-
yet, maintaining her stand, and at the same time forming
a harrier by which the more eastern states were protect.
ed from the corn mon enemy, she hasnot only established
herself, but has also gone forward to the establishment and
support of those states and territories which now form
the great national domain, which is the subject of this
Notwithstanding many arguments might be used,
to aIIll whom it may concern, that it appears, by the cer-
tificate of the escheator in and for the city of Richmond,
that "a certain piece or parcel of ground, situated on
the south side of E street in the city of Riclhmond, con- s
training about 21 feet inches in front on said E street, d
and being a part of lot No. 17 in the plan of the said city,
of which John McMara, late of the said city of Rtichmond,
died seized and possessed, has escheated to the com- b
monwealth of Virginia."

which would go to prove that Kentucky has claims to
appropriations of those lands, without extending the sys-
tem to all the other states, yet, your committee believe,
that such arguments are not necessary, and that a few
facts here submitted will prove that those appropriations
may be mode general, without materially affecting the
n national revenue.
Relying upon the apparent correctness of the able do-
. cument before the committee, received from the state of
Maryland, it appea s that the total amount of literary ap-
f propriations made to the new states and territories, will
amount to 14,576,569 acres ; that the additional amount
* required to extend the same system to those states for
y which no such appropriations have yet been made,
n would be 9,370,760 acres ; that the state of Kentucky,
0 as her part of such appropriation, would be entitled to
1,066,695 acres; and, estimating the whole quantity of
unsold lands yet owned by the United States, at 400,000,-
, 000 acres, that the additional amount required to extend
r the same scale of appropriation- to all the states which
h have not received any, would not amount to 24 per cent
d upon the landed fund as above.
Relying, therefore, upon the foregoing considerations
h as sufficient for their purpose, and believing that the
f magnanimity of their sister states in the west %will pro-
. duce an unanimity in the Congress of the United States
Supon this subject, your committee are prepared to close
this report, and beg leave to recommend the adoption of
the following resolutions :
e Resolved, by ithe Senate and House of Representatives of
the Commanwealth of Kentucky, That each of the United
d States has an equal right, in its just proportion, to part.
pate in the benefit of the public lands, the common pro-
periy ofthe Union.
s Resolved, That the executive of this state be requested,
as soon as practicable, to transmit copies of the foregoing
report-and resolution to our Senators and Representatives
in Congress, with a request that they will lay the same
before their respective houses, and use their endeavors
- to procure the passage of a law to appropriate to the use
* of the state of Kentucky, for the purposes of education,
such a part of the public lands of the United States as
may be equitable and just.
All which is respectfully submitted.

Governor Bond has just completed a tour
through the eastern part of this state, having re-
viewed the militia in twelve counties. The Go-
vernor is said to have been highly gratified with
the appearance of the troops who came under
his inspection. Though few in number, they
were generally well armed, and exhibited the
greatest good order and decorum.
It appears, by the Vandalia paper, that Judge
Phillips and Col. Coles, (Register of the Land
Office at Edwardsville,) are before the people as
candidates for the office of Governor at the next
general election. We have not yet seen any
other candidates announced.
Female Education.-The Bellows Falls paper
gives a pleasant description of the marriage of an
honest farmer with a young lady just graduated
from a Female-Country Academy, after a resi.
dence therein of about six months. The husband,
boasting of her learning, says: She canrt tell the
year and day of the month when our forefathers
landed at Plymouth ; knows the name of every
capital town in the Union ; can tell to an inch
how far it is from here to the .,ntipodes, I think
she calls them. If you should bore a hole through
the globe, and chuck a millstone into it, she can
tell to a shaving what would become of the mill-
stone. She is likewise a mronstrous pretty paint.
er, and can paint a puppy so well that you'd take
it for a lion, and sheep 'that looks as big and as
grand as an elephant. She knows all about chem-
istry, and says that water is composed of two
kinds of gin, that is to say, ox-gin and hydrer-gin;
and air is made of ox-gin and nitre-gin or (what
is the same thing in English) salt.petrc-gin. She
says that burning a stick of wood in the fire is
nothing but a play of comical (Chemical) infit i-
ty ; and that not a particle of the matter which
belonged to the stick is lost, but only scattered
about like chaff in a hurricane."

quence of being turned out of the house for some
offence, twice hung itself on a tree; in the first
attempt, he was discovered and cut down, but
succeeded, in its second attempt, in destroying i

Two English officers, in consequence of a
dispute, had a meeting on the glacis of Calais, to
fight with pistols one.of them received a ball in
his thigh. Being prosecuted by the public au-
thorities, they were discharged by the chamber
of council; but on the appeal of the attorney
general, the royal court of Douay caused them to
be arraigned for the attempt of murder. This
proceeding was denounced by the accused to the
supreme court, which annulled it, and appointed
the court ofNancy to decide on the appeal of the
authorities against the decision of the chamber
of council. The court of Nancy having adopt-
ed the same doctrine as the court of Douay,
this new act of accusation was submitted to the
court of cassation, "which has decided that the
cause should be brought before the assembled
sections, under the the presidency of the keeper
of the seals.
TOULOUSE, SEPT. 26.
Bousquier, who was at first implicated in the
charge, and afterwards cited as a witness in the
proceedings relative to the assassination of the
unfortunate Fualdes, died at Rodez on the 20th
of this month. Before he died he made and
signed the following declaration :
I, the undersigned, being on the bed ofdeath, wish-
ing to appease the remorse of my conscience, and to re-
pair, as far as I am- able, the wrongs I have committed,
do declare before God, who searches my heart, and
knows that I speak truth, that all I deposed relative to
the assassination of K. FNaides is completely false ; that
it was only the fear of death with which I was threaten-
ed, that induced me to say I was in the house of Bancal,
and was present when the body, was thrown into the
river; and that it was only to save my life that I made
the said declaration, which I now of mny full and free will
retract, desiring tnat this retraction may be made public
at my death. Given at Rodez, in one of the balls of the
Hotel-Dieu, Sept. 4, 1821."
A rare instance of integrity of conduct has
come under our notice, which deserves to
be recorded. About six years ago, a tradesman
residing in Leeds fell into decay, and finding
his embarrassments insurmountable, he left- the
town considerably in debt. His creditors soon
began to consider their claims desperate, and
most of then) had long ago placed the ominous
word bad opposite the entry in their ledgers.
But on Monday morning last each of them re-
ceived a circular, requesting that they would
meet the debtor and his wife on the arrival of the
Rippon coach at the White Horse Inn, Leeds,
and bring with them their accounts. This wel-
come invitation was, of course, readily accepted,
and as each account was presented it was dis-
charged without any deduction.. The aggregate
amount of the debts, thus honorably liquidated,
we have not heard: but we know that one trades-
man, a timber merchant in that place, received
1001. The lady, who took an active part in this
pleasurable duty, has, we hear, had lately a hand-
some fortune left her, at her own disposal ; and
one of the first purposes to which she has appli-
ed her well merited wealth has been to discharge
all her husband's debts.-Leeds Alercury.
The Journal de Lyon, relates that a young La.
dy of Marseilles, between 40 and 50, had term.
nated her life in a very tragical manner. A cer-
tain gentleman, nearly her own age, having rtfus-
ed to marry her-according to promise, she went
to his country house and hung herself to his gate
with his bell-rope.
.dlliteration.-The admirers of alliteration will
be pleased with the following character of a
young lady, from an old Newcastle Journal:--
- Died, in the flower of her age, Miss Mary
Harrison, of Wheldon bridge-house. If bound-
less benevolence be the basis of beatitude, and
harmless humility the harbinger of a hallowed
hart, these christian concomitants composed her
characteristic, and conciliated the esteem of her
contemporary acquaintances, who mean to model
their manners by the mould of their meritorious
monitor." There are but two instances in our
recollection which approach near to the above :
the one is, Henry Vlallami, hatter, hosier, and
habc rdnasher, at Holburn-bridge,Hatton-garden;"
the other, Benjamin Bell, brown bread and
biscuit bake, near Battersea-bridge.

of it, for the purpose of affording him the oppor-

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The members appointed yesterday to compose
the Committee on Revolutionary Pernsions, con-
sisted of Messrs. Cocke, Reed, of 'Mas. Whip-
pie, Wilson, Long, Jackson, arid Hern ck.
After the Journal was read this day, and the
petitions from the different States andllTerrito-.
ties presented and referred to the respective ap-
Mr. Rankin submitted the following resolu-
tion, which was adopted :
Resolved, That the Committee on Public Lands be in-

thereon, in the same manner as if said papers were re.
ferr-d to such Committee by special order of the
Several amendments were proposed, when, on
motion of Mr. Sawyer, the said resolution, to-
gether with the amendments theretq, was order-
ed to lie on the table.
t Mr.4 allary submitted the following resolu-
Resolved, That the committee on Revolutionary Pen-
sions be directed to inquire into the expediency of au-
thorizing the Secretary of War to restore to the pen-
sion roll any persoit who shall have been stricken there-
from on the evidence of such person's schedule, wher-.
ever the Secretary of War shall be satisfied, by addi-
tional evidence, that such person is in such reduced cir-
cumstances as to come within the provisions of the acts
of 1818 and 1820.
The resolution was adopted.
Mr. (rook, of Illinois, submitted the following
"Resolved, That the committee on the public lands be.
instructed to inquire whether any, a.yl, if any, what pro-
vision is necessary to be made to enable the people of
the state of Illinois to open a canal through the public
land to connect the waters of Lake Michigan with the
Mr. Floyd, of Va. opposed the resolution. He
thought that Congress had already sufficiently
evinced its liberality to the new states. On a
former occasion, he had proposed a resolution
to appropriate a portion of the public lands for
the endow mif, it of colleges. That resoJityu 4 bad
lcers ed the decided opposition of the tw i.ates.
A constitutional question was raised on the sub-
j ct, \w lucih, if it did not convince, at least created
so much doubt, in his own mind, as to induce
him to forbear to press it. Nor could he, in the
present instance,, as a member of a state which
had done as much at least as any state in the
Uniour for the general benefit, consent to a pro-
position of this sort. As well might Virginia ask
for an appropriation of the public funds for the
purpose of completing c;nals to the city of Rich-
mond. Were such a proposition to be made, he
entertained no doubt that it would meet with op-
position from the very quarter from whence this
resolution had proceeded. Mr. F. was disposed
to leave the subject of canals to the energy and
ability of those states through which they pass,
and for whose benefit they are intended.
Mr. Cook replied : He did not expect that a
proposition, so reasonable as he conceived this to
be, would meet with opposition, especially in this
stage of its progress. The- states northwest of
the Ohio, he coulik assure the hon. member
from Virginia, felt grateful for all the favors they
had received-but in the present case no favor
was asked. The object of the resolution was not
to solicit a donation from the general govern-
ment to assist in building the canal-but merely
to reserve a narrow strip of land in the direction
of the contemplated canal and, through which it
should pass. By this measure, the government,
instead of impairing its funds would increase
them. Such an act would undoubtedly enable
the government to dispose of the reservation
hereafter at a price greatly enhanced, and, at the
same time, virtually authorize the government
of Illinois to goon with its contemplated underta-
The question was then taken, and the resolu-
The House then resolved itself into a conmmit-
tee of the whole on the state of the Unio--Mr.
T'aylor, of N. Y. in the chair.

From the NVew-York Journal and Patron of Industry.
To Messrs. Ga.LEs & SEATox, Editors of the National
Gentlemen : In your paper of the 10th instant,
I notice the communication of a writer under
the signature of A Citizen," enquiring of" A
Maryland Farmer," what would be a sufficient
encouragement to Domestic Industry; and ask-
ing if20, 30, or 50 per cent. duty on importa-
tion, or a total prohibition, would be deemed suf-
ficient, and what article of home manufacture
requires further protection from government ?
he not being able to point out any one that
should, as he thinks, in justice, receive additional
legislative encouragement, and requests to be in-
r If it will not be deemed obtrusive, a humble
Shepherd will take the liberty to answer for the
1 Maryland Farmer," that wool and woollen fa-
brics require further encouragement, either by
bounties* to the growers o! wool or protection by
an increase of the duties on the importation of fo-
reign wool and woollen goods. And here,I will
venture to assert, that the infant manufactures of
this country require from the national govern-
ment further and more ample protection ; not to
wool alone, but to every article (coarse cottons,
hats, leather, and a few other articles excepted)
which our wants require, and in the production
of which any considerable number of our citizens
are engaged. Also, a twial prohibition of all ar-
ticles where the number of individuals employed
in their production or manufacture is so great as
to promise a supply equal to the consumption of
Most, if not all the writers against an increase
of the Tariff, (including Mr. Cambreleng) have
considered the manufactures as a distinct class of
the community;that further protection would ope-
rate solely for their benefit, and to the prejudice
of the agricultural and mercantile classes.t The
Citizen" is probably of this number. But, if
he had studied the subject a little deeper, so far
as to analyze the component parts of a piece of
cloth, he would readily have discovered that
protecting the manufacturer was also protecting
the agriculturist,j by securing to him not only
the supplying of the wool, but, what is of great
importance, and now lost to him, the advantage
of feeding the spinner, weaver, and finisher, of
the cloth-their families and other artizans con-
nected directly, or indirectly, with the manufac-
I hazard nothing in saying, that a total prohi-
bition of foreign wool and woollen goods would
create a home market for the productions of our
farms, far, very far, beyond any export demand
that there ever has been or ever can be. The
securing to the shepherd and busbandwran a
steady home market would be the means of in-
creasing their flocks and herds, and they would
then enter into their fields with new spirit and in-
creased diligence; exert themselves to meet the
growing demand, and soon become, not in name
merely, but in reality,Independent Farmers.
Our farmers are sagacious, and know well how
to estimate Farmer B.ke sA.'I. and the Mary-
land Farmer's" remarks, that cattle in an inland

them to pay their taxes and meet the public cre-

that the manufacturers-are useful and convenient

eatable article, the produce of their farms, into

The nation which consents to receive British
goods must consent to pay the taxes charged up-
on them, directly and indirectly, viz. the British
land tax, the rent, the poor rates,, the tythes
charged upon the land that pastures the sheep
and produces the animal and vegetable food (and
nearly all are charged with an excise) consumed
by the herdsmen, farmers, and artizans, and their
families, connected with them in growing the
wool, producing the provisions, and manufactur-
ing the cloths, &e. for foreign markets.
No nation understands the principles of politi-
cal economy better than Great Britain. By her
superior husbandry, and skill in converting wool
-and food into cloth, she not only raises wool and
corn sufficient to feed and clothe her population,
but she-so manages her concerns, through her

to take about twenty millions of dollars annually
of the produce of her lands, thus highly taxed,

-contribute towards the revenues of the crown ma.

Citizen":if this is not the grand secret which en-
ables Great 'Britain to raise annually such an
enormous revenue (viz. 95 millions sterling, equal
to about 422 millions of dollars) by taxing every
nation which receives her goods, making the
mercantile class -of such nations her collec-

If government will make such inquiries as may ena-
ble it to judge of what can be done with safety and ad-
vanrage, and will promote agricultural industry by grant-
ing positive encouragement, agriculture will prosper
with a rapidity, and will be carried on to an extent,
which is hardly to be credited, and in a much superior
degree than by the let-alone system, under the torpor
of which, ages might pass away without accomplishing
what might be effected in the course of a few years un-
der a few years of protection.

Considering how fast and how much the progress of
new settlements in the United States may increase the
surplus produce of the soil, and weighing seriously the
tendency of the system which prevails among most of
the commercial nations of Europe, whatever depend-
ence may be placed on the force of natural circumstance
to counteract the effects of an artificial policy, there ap-
pears strong reasons to regard the foreign demand for
that surplus as too uncertain a reliance, and to desire a
substitute tbr it in an extensive domestic market. To
secure such a market, there is no other expedient than
to promote manufacturing establishments-manufactur-
ers who constitute the most numerous class, after the
cultivators )f the land, are for that reason the principal
consumers of thte surplus of their labor.-lbid,p. 182.

miles west of the city of Baltimore, between the Liberty

Translation of the Minister's reply to the fore.
Auenos dyres, 25th ,-. .. .. 1821.
Agreeably to what the agent of the trr..:'. States
pleased to represent to me ii his official letter, tinder
yesterday's date, the government has resolved upon, and
ordered to be communicated to those whom it may con-
1st. That no vessel, assuming the character or flag of
the United States of North America, shall be permitted
to enter, discharge, or depart from any roads or ports of
this province, unless the right of such vessel be previ-
ously acknowledged by the agent of said States resident
in this city.
2dly. That the principal notary of the government
makes known to all notaries public, that, previous to ex-
tending a contract of sale or transfer of any vessel bear-
ing the flag of the United States of North America, they
give notice to the agent of said states ; the expenses in-
curred to be paid by those concerned.
With this, the minister of government and of foreign
relations repeats to the agent the assurance of his high-
est consideration and respect.

Reduction of Terms.
IHE terms for the session, commencing the first Mon-
S day in January, 1822, will be $60, being 20 per cent.
less than heretofore. This sum will pay for board, wash
ing, and tuition in Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Gram-
mar and Parsing, Geography, History, Mythology,Belles
Lettres, Chymistry, Natural Philosophy, and Astronomy.
Those who remain a sufficient length of time at school
will also be instructed in Zoology and Botany.
Pens and ink, paper, &c. are supplied by the princi-
pals, and for these a regular charge of S2 50 per session
is made. All the requisite books may also be had at the
usual store prices; besides which, no extra expenses are
allowed to be incurred, excepting suca as may be au-
thorized by parents or guardians.
In this Seminary there are three gentlemen and one
lady constantly engaged in teaching those branches that
are included in the first charge. A competent appara-
tus is employed for the purpose of illustration in Natu-
ral Philosophy and Chymistry; also, a pair of large globes
for Geography, and a very complete orrery for Astrono-
my. Familiar lectures, accompanied by experiments,
are frequently delivered to the whole school.
The pupils all board with the principals, and regular- -
ly attend divine service every sabbathp .
Music and Drawing have their respective teachers,and
form a separate charge. There are three excellent Pia-
no Fortes kept for the use of the pupils; and in this, as
well as other departments, the course of instruction ia
solid and radical, nothing being taught by way of cate-
Payment to be made each session in advance.
The first session in the year ends early in June, when
there is an examination, but no vacation; the second
session ends in the middle of November, when there is a
vacation until January.
Each lady is to bring with her a coverlid, a pair of
blankets, sheets, and towels.
