ILLERS AND MERCHANTS, ATTEND.-
The Lancaster Lateral Canal Company, having sold to
the State of Ohio their Canal, extending from the Ohio Canal
at the town of Carroll to Lancaster, and having reserved in said
sale the Lands, Flouring Mill, and Water Power connected
therewith, with a view to the closing of their business, and pre-
paring for the surrender of their charter, they will offer for sale at
public vendue, to the highest bidder, on the 12th day of June
next, at the town of Carroll, in Fairfield county, Ohio, a supe-
rior Water Power on the Ohio and Erie Canal, a few rods from
its junction with the Hocking Valley Canal, with about five
acres of Land attached thereto. This power is one of the best
on the Ohio Canal, south of Roscoe. It is situated at the foot of
a level 8 miles in length, and commands nearly all the water
which supplies the Canal for 17 miles below. The fall is six-
teen feet, and the power is sufficient to move four run of stones
the whole year. It is situated in the heart of one of the best
grain-growing districts in Ohio.
And on the 13th day of the same month they will sell at pub-
lie vendue their valuable Flouring Mill, on the Hocking Valley
Canal, at the town of Lancaster. This mill has four run of
stones, and is now in successful operation. It is 8 miles south
of the Ohio Canal, and at tme foot of a level of 16 miles. The
fall at this mill is twenty-two feet. This is the only good Flour-
ing Mill in the immediate vicinity of'the town of Lancaster, and
there is no other site on which one could be erected to move by
water power, the Company having secured by lease the whole
water of the Canal at this point. The advantages of this mill
are therefore very great. There is received annually into this
mill and the several warehouses situated on the Canal, at not
more than 80 rods distance, over 150,000 bushels of wheat.
The terms of sale will be, one-fourth in hand, and the resi-
due in three equal annual installments, with interest. Such an
opportunity for investment in mill property has seldom offered
itself for investment in the Western country.

IMPROVED SURGEONS' TRUSSES, for the
radical cure of Hernia or Rupture, by HEBER
CHASE, M. D. Philadelphia.
The committee of the Philadelphia Medical Society for the
investigation of the radical cure of Hernia, observe :
Fully impressed with the extreme caution required in form-
ing conclusions concerning changes of structure taking place in
parts of the body, concealed not mnly by the integuments, but
by tendinous matter and fascia, and where the nature of the dis-
ease renders the opportunity of post mortem examination ex-
ceedingly rare; your committee has been desirous to avoid that
blameable haste in the decision of important questions which
has too frequently given to plausible but ingenious methods of
treatment a temporary reputation, to the abuse of public confi-
dence, and the injury of the profession, by granting to empiri-
cism the weight and influence of great names.
The instruments of Dr. Chase have effected the permanent
and accurate retention of the intestines in every case of hernia
observed by the committee, without material inconvenience to
the patient, and often under trials more severe than are usually
ventured upon by those who wear other trusses ; trials which
would be imprudent with any other apparatus known to thle
committee.
The committee are induced by the foregoing conclusions to
recommend, in strong terms, the instruments of Dr. Chase to
the confidence of the profession, as the best known means of
mechanical retention in hernia, and as furnishing the highest
chances of radical cure.
"They have no hesitation in saying that, were they individu-
ally affected with this terrible disease, they would resort to this
method of treatment, with the triple view of securing their com-
fort, safety, and ultimate chance of recovery.

Committee."
All must now admit of the radical cure of Hernia ; and that
Dr. Chase's Trusses are decidedly the best yetinvented to effect
that object."-Southern Medical and Surgical Journal.
For the utility and excellence of these instruments, reference
may be had to the principal physicians of this city, who are pre-
pared to apply them.

been formed for the ultimate purpose of the Culture,
Reeling, Spinning, and Manufacturing of Silk in all its varieties,
",id having moreover purchased from G. Gay, Esq. the Patent
Right to his highly approved Silk machine for the entire State
of Maryland, and the exclusive privilege of manufacturing, using
and vending the same to Companies or Counties, are ready, and
do hereby offer for sale the right to use the same, to each and
every County in the State.
The advantages to be derived from having an interest in the
concern must be apparent to every person who considers that
the right to a County authorizes the formation of a Company for
the same purposes, to open books for subscription to Stock to
any specified amount, to the sale of any number of Machines
that may be required, and also to an increased number of Spin-
dles, allofwhi.h insuresan increase of profits proportioned to the
increased demand for the machine. Another source of profit is
that of Reeling and Spinning the Silk of the Grower or Cul-
tivator, either by the pound or upon shares. This will be found
to be no inconsiderable item in the profit, where an exclusive
privilege is secured, and the at ticle of Silk extensively cultiva-
ted. The terms of sale of the above privileges will be made
accommodating to a purchaser, both as to time and payments.
ProposEls will be received at the Office of the Company, No.

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.


STATE OF EUROPE.-NEXT CENSUS OF
THE UNITED STATES.

If I were to say that nearly the whole of Great Britain
and Ireland, and the continent of Europe, are at thismo-
ment closely bordering on a sanguinary revolution, I
should be saying nothing but the truth."
[London Correspondence of National Intelligencer.
"t Mr. ADAMSj according to the newspapers, said in the
House of Representatives: A member has spoken of
CONSEQUENCES: IN THE EVENT OF WAR, if it were a war
of principle and justice, consequences are secondary."
[Correspondence of the New York American.
There are many persons who would not sim-
ply shrink with dread, but disgust, from the con-
sequences of doctrines they are led to uphold,
could they be made to anticipate the conse-
quences of reducing their creeds to practice.
One of the most dangerous symptoms of con-
stitutional disorder in society, on both sides of
the Atlantic, is, that, in opposition to princi-
ples, consequences are not only of secondary, but
of no consequence. In the abstract.so ought we
to reason, provided we clearly discern what is
principle, and can rationally assure ourselves of
salutary results. But, how fearful must be the
prospect of future times, when an immense num-
ber of persons conceive they are in duty bound
to take on themselves, and impose on others,
the responsibility of consequences! Did such
persons wait to consider how completely they throw them-
selves into the net of designing demagogues, they would
pause. It is not yet very long since a large share of
Europe was an aceldama, from men contending that they
were obeying the decrees of Heaven, and acting under
duties above all human laws. What has been acted may
be imitated, and blood and ruin follow the footsteps of men
rushing forward regardless of consequences.
But, quitting-these reflections, let us for a moment
glance on Europe-on that part of the earth which holds
the destinies of the nations within and without its limits.
Europe may be subdivided into the active and passive
nations, with the exception of Russia, partaking, as occa-
sion serves, of both characters. In activity, Great Britain
and France stand pre-eminent: in the passive class, Austria
sustains her character of centuries. On the three south-
ern peninsulas of Europe, Spain torn by civil war, and
Portugal of little consequence in general policy; Italy, di-
rect or indirect, under the influence of Austria; and Greece,
a kingdom in name, anarchy in fact. In northern Europe,
Sweden and Denmark, respectable as nations for their
scale of intelligence, but politically monarchies, which in
any great crisis must be moved by the impulse or attrac-
tions of larger masses. Prussia, in many respects the most
perfect Government which was ever formed on earth, the
first which made intellectual improvement a fundamental
part of state policy, but which, from position and the alli-
ance of their royal families, must yield to Russian influ-
ence. The German States, with people highly improved
and civilized, and far more prone to peace than war, yet
often forced into, and when so involved, terrible in war.
Austria, holding a position which renders her the van-
guard towards Russia, strong, even powerful, when called
into action in conflict with the Western States of Europe
or on the southward with Turkey; but, from their common
Sclavonic population, feebly opposed to Russia. No other
European- monarchy has so much power, however, to act
as peacemaker as Austria. The policy of her Government,
at least since the treaty of Hubertsberg, (1763,) has been
peace ; though involved in the wars of the French revolu-
tion, and in the end a gainer by treaties, her ancient policy
has been since renewed. Austria is, in our idea, a des-
potism ; but it must be confessed to be the. mildest of all
despotisms. And another most honorable distinction is
due to Austria: no other nation has ever appeared on our

planet with a tithe of her physical force, which has en-
croached so little on contiguous States.
France now, as at distant periods since the age of Char-
lemagne,-contains the most inflammable elements to set
Europe-thie world on fire. With all the parchnlents cov-
ered with diplomatic limits, the Rhine and the eastern bor-
der of the Swiss cantons is also the true eastern border of
France. In that generous, gallant, and brave nation, there
are too .many who regard mytary glory the supreme good.
It betrays ignorance of their national character to say that
the French pant for war because discontented with Louis
Philippe. A character conspicuous under Clovis, Charle-
Imagne, Philip Augustus inthe Crusades, under Louis XIV,
and through and since their own Revolution, lies deeper
based than politicians are able or willing to admit. In
real power, orrelative power, France has changed the least
of any existing State in Europe during the last two centu-
ries. Called into activity-and less is needed to produce
such an effect in France than in any other nation of the
Caucasian world-then is she felt like a well-pointed and
two-edged sword.
After the.close of the American Revolution, Europe
generally, but France and Great Britain particularly, con-


trained all the inflammatory elements of revolution, and
from every feature of the times, it was the cast of a die
which nation was to undergo the fiery ordeal. France
'tookthe lead and Britain the alarm; and now, at the end
of fi ty years, the attitudes of the two nations are not essen-
tially different. In both nations, much of vague, unde-
fined, but dangerous views of the present and future are in-
dulged. On which soil the "volcano will burst remains in
the womb of Time. Taken apart-
Great Britain, holding the extremes of the Eastern con-
tinent, mistress of Indostan, extending her power in Afgh-
anistan, Persia, and Tartary, whilst her writers, and even
her legislators, are abusing Russia for encroachments on
Turkey; seizing Breshire in Persia, and Aden in Arabia,
whilst accusing Rdssia of instigating the Schah of Persia
to besiege Herat, a city on the table-land of Asia: with
the most extended commerce and manufacturing power
ever united in the hands of the same people; holding the
fine northwestern, archipelago of Europe as her seat of
science, population, wealth, and grandeur; unequalled co-
lonies in Asia, Africa, the West Indies, and in South and
North America-no other nation had ever so much to risk
in war, and yet she, threatens Russia, and her Tory party
the United States. '
Russia, seated with her back to the frozen and inaccessi-
ble regions of the north; dependent Sweden on her right,
and the interminable Asia on her left; agitated Europe in
front with her right foot on Turkey and left on Persia,
and, in fine, her rlever-closed eyes on the whole earth-
what other nation can expect to gain by war with such a
Power-a Power ruling, direct or indirect, over at least
one hundred millions of people, with an army of EIGHT HUN-
DRED THOUSAND MEN, and, according to British authority,
the third, if not the second, most efficient fleet on earth 1
Interrogate the past, and it will answer by pointing to the
names of Charles XII and Napoleon; it will point, on the
mips of Europe and Asia, to Sweden, Poland, Turkey,
Persia, and Siberia, and trace the lines of Russian marches
over Germany into Italy, Switzerland, and France. We


changelin the balan e of power. But the next census must
show a cha'iyge.or e consequence than that produced by
any previous enumeration. Upon the most rigid analysis
of progressive population, the Atlantic and interior num-
bers will be equalized about 1843 or 1844; and, at the cen-
sus of 1840-'41, the aggregate ought to be about seventeen
million, eight in the central sections and nine along the
Atlantic slope.
We frequently see, and often hear of persons in all the
fulness of worldly prosperity committing suicide. The
writer of this article has witnessed more than one such
melancholy circumstance, and is not altogether without
fear of living to see his country inflicting on itself such a
calamity. Parties, shouting principle while reckless of con-
sequences, are ready-made instruments of national suicide.
"Time," says a profound French philosopher, "destroys
every thing made without his assistance." In our country,
most profound contempt of time, past or to come, has been
expressed, even in our legislative halls. What time pro-
mises to do, and which no power without the aid of time
ever did do, is expected amongst us to be reared, like the
tower of Babel, to the heavens, and. above all the deluges
to which the moral as well as physical world is subject.
We may thus build, until stopped-in our aspiring plans by,
if not confusion of tongues, a conflict of interests.
To conclude in seriousness, the most splendid destiny
ever offered to any portion of mankind lies before the An-
glo-Saxon population of North A'merica, unless it is marred
by national folly, by a rejection of those principles on which
alone public prosperity ever has and ever must rest. Union
and a judicious cultivation of our immense resources can
place us amongst the most happy and morally influential
national associations which ever rose on earth.

A VISIT TO SLEEPY HOLLOW.

FROM THE N. Y. EXPRESS, MAY 15.
PEDESTRIAN ExcuRSIONs.-Exercise and good air do so
much toward prolonging life, exhilarating the spirits, and
keeping us in good health, that we ought to' seize upon
every occasion to enjoy them. An excursion in an over-
flowing steamboat, amid the noise, turmoil, and odor of its
populousness and machinery is not enough; and though
riding in the country, particularly in parties, on horseback,
is excellent, yet there is nothing like long walks-excur-
sions on foot. These excursions it is which give young
Englishmen so much vigor of body, and such a general
flush of health. Our merchants ought to walk, not to ride
to Rockaway in a close carriage amid clouds of dust. Hal-
lett's Cove is just far enough out of town in summer for a
good walk morning and evening. People who have coun-
try-houses towards King's Bridge should never ride to
the Harlem Railroad. Yonkers is a very fair walk from the
Harlem end of the road, with some fair scenery on the
route.
It is a pity that our country and our neighborhood have
not that kind of a genius of the place. beguiling the pe-
destrian on his route, that Sir Walter Scott, Wordsworth,
and others have imparted to England or Scotland-or that
Rousseau, Voltaire, and Byron have given to the Geneva
lake-, but all this is coming. The suburbs of New York
are looking up. We made, with one of our young and
active merchants, one of these pedestrian excursions, the
other day, to Sleepy Hollow," provoked thereto by the
Legend of the Sleepy Hollow, and a late, most beautiful
article, in the Knickerbocker, from Geoffrey Crayon him-
self. We followed from Yonkers the line of the Croton
aqueduct, a greater than a Roman undertaking; passed by
Bleecker's palace of a school that overlooks the Hudson ;
the country-houses of New York gentlemen, we know not
how many, some of them as barren of ornamental trees as
if on the Roman Campagna; and we even peeped down
the way that led to the mansion of the renowned Geoffrey
Gent., but darkness was over his dwelling, and the farm-
ers were going to rest, as we reached that part of the route,
and were pushing onward to "the 1kmbitious Hotel,"
with cupola and verandahs," Geoffrey now rather mourn-
fully speaks of, as cresting the summit of a hill, instead of
"' the old little tavern below the hills, where the (Dutch)
tarmers used to loiter on market days, and indulge in cider
and gingerbread." We tarried at" Tarrytown," at this
ambitious hotel," the worthy host, Mr. Curtis, making it
worthy of its ambition and its cupola too.
Sleepy Hollow" we visited next morning. There is
a good deal of poetry about this Sleepy Hollow ; but the
romance is a capital one nevertheless. The old Church
though, shame on the men who put on the semi-Grecian
portico-the ghost of Frederick Filipson eternally haunts
these desecrators of antiquity-the old Church and the
grave-yard, though, are themes for story. True, the old
utch sun-bonnet is all gone, and the French milliner is
transforming all the Sleepy Hollow maidens into Broadway
belles; but there is the grave-yard, and there the people
diedfor it, in Dutch, and were buried in it, in Dutch, and
the moss-covered grave-stones record them as dead, in
Dutch. When all Dutch is forgotten, and glorious old
Holland sinks with her dikes, whence she came, into the
sea, how some American Champollion will puzzle his brain
over this untranslatable tongue of but one people, who
learn all other languages because no other people will learn
their own! Irving, however, we trust, has immortalized
Sleepy Hollow. If the magic power of his pen can invest
his home on the Hudson with the witchery Scott has
thrown around Melrose or the Highlands, or Wordsworth
over his Lakes and Pikes, the whole world, not the En-
glish-speaking tongue of these twenty-six embryo empires
of ours, but they of that imperial nation whose arts and
arms are already beyond the Indus-pilgrims from Aus-
tralasia, and New South Wales even, will throng there for
a relic, with the fulness of gratitude for such inspiration
upon their lips.
Adieu to Sleepy Hollow. We don't think much of Po-
cantico. What would old Diedrich have said if he could


have seen the Irishmen, the gunpowder, the crowbar, the
pick-axe, the wheel-barrow, the incumbent masses of earth
and granite vexing and shooting with water-works
athwart the quiet and lassitude of Sleepy Hollow! Titan,
now standing on its hills, and tossing its rocks, and soon
as playthings! Unearth the Van Tassels, Geoffrey, and
let us hear what they say. Forgive a pedestrian, if, as he
walks leg-weary in the suburbs of his magnificent city, he
wants a story ro beguile the way-side. Line the margin
of the Hudson with legends. People its hills, as those over
the Rhine, with a fancy. There is almost a Swiss pass
from King's Bridge to Manhattanville. Spuyten Devil
creek has not its rush of waters for nothing. Here, and
beyond here, is the classic soil of a revolution, not of go-
veinment alone, but of all the elements of a government:
of society, of the science of navigation, of thought, enter-
prise, and action; a retroactive revolution, which, as it here
rolls onward the new tide, is to roll back, too, by the very
agency its own Fulton discovered, what must inevitably
revolutionize the world. He, who alone has written a
Life of the Great Columbus, would never need an inspir-
ing topic here. Speculators in lots, owners of land, build-
ers of steamboats, keepers of hotels, thou, 0 Goddess, who
anciently presided over Health, make Washington Irving
write, and write; for exercise gives health, and a land of
story is the paradise of the pedestrian. And what has fill-
ed every nook and eyrie of the lochs and highlands-what
makes Langdale Pikes populous, and the horrible valley
of the Borrowdale alive with the tramping of feet, the land-
lord rejoicing,,the farmer glad-and streams of gold ran-
ning there from the world's end-what, but the inspiring
pen of a Scott or a Wordsworth, who have peopled every
scene, and written their own fame as immortal upon the
history of the everlasting hills themselves ?

FRANCE AND EUROPE.

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE NEW YORK AMERICAN.
PARIS, FEB. 22, 1839.
By law, it is in the power of any member of the Govern-
ment to require, through the Minister of Police, the imme-
diate insertion at the head of any journal of a full or par-
tial contradiction of erroneous statements relating to the
authorities, or the administration of affairs. The Opposi-
tion papers are often thus compelled to bear on their fronts
the lie direct-the official allegation that they have uttered
what is absolutely false-absolument faux-tout a fait
controuve. The Courier Frangais of the 17th carries in
this way, without an editorial remark, two official falsifica-
tions; and the effect is even ludicrous. Occasionally, the
National, when so bedecked, (as it was on the 19th inst.)
contents itself with observing that every one knows what
such denials are worth.
The temonstrances which eminent individuals frequent-
ly make in the newspapers against personal paragraphs may
likewise be found a little pleasant. Some declare that
they are not dead; not on distant journeys; have not held
particular interviews, &c. Baron Von Hammer, the cele-
brated scholar and historian of the Ottoman Empire, has
deemed it advisable to send from Vienna a circular note
for the Paris press, extinguishing a splendid paragraph
about the marriage of his daughter, which told of magnifi-
cent nuptial presents from the Sublime Porte, the presence
of the Imperial family of Austria, and other invented par-
ticulars, which, as he says, would be good material for a
tale of the Thousand and one Nights. The same press
killed, not long since, Abdel-Kader and Mahemet Ali,
and raised various wars and insurrections in the East.
Every week, at least, it regales us with a grand conspiracy
or revolt in some part of the Russian Empire. One day,
it creates the Duc of NEMOURS a generalissimo; the next,
the Duke of Orleans; and these, its own appointments, it
takes as the theme of the severest strictures on the paternal
favoritism of Louis PHILIPPE, and the subserviency of his
Ministers.
For more than two years, I have looked every morning
through most of the Paris and London newspapers; and
afterwards noted the statements. and speculations which
proved to be utterly or mainly fabulous and groundless;
and I think myself warranted in my impression that they
amounted to more than one-half of the immense-mass of
such matter. The portion of the fictions which was copied
into the New York papers, and never rectified, is quite
large enough. From my own observation, and the testi-
mony of competent judges, I am sure that reliance is not
to be placed on one-third of the correspondence from
France, Spain, and Germany, published in the London
journals.
All the theatres and other resorts in which masked balls
were held in the Carnival time aro specially permitted to
continue those entertainments during the Lent. There is
but one exception-the Grand Opera-altogether a Gov-
ernment institution. The Liberal editors complain bit-
terly of the interdict; aver that several orders and counter-
orders on the subject were issued by the Minister of Inte-
nor ; and conclude that the final decree was a concession
to the instances of the Archbishop of Paris-an elction-
eering capucinade-to win the priest party. Ani they
call upon the tradesmen who are entitled to vote to ramem-
ber the misdeed at the polls You can imagine the con-
trast between the design of Lent and the renewal of the
hideous and pestilent orgies which I have slightly described
to you in some of my recentletters. If the Ministryclosed
one field of Satan at the proper entreaty of the Priimate, I
fear that it has left open numberless others of the kind, in
order to keep the mass of the Parisians in humor anJ sport
politically innocent.
When a comparison is instituted, with regard to the
popular disorders which occur on the two sides of the At-
lantic, we should advert not merely to the number of actual
riots in the continental countries in Europe, but to the evil
compliances and sacrifices which the rulers deem it neces-
sary to make for the purpose of prevention. In Paris, cor-
rupting amusements must be allowed ; expensive works un-
dertaken for the operatives ; pageants and shows provided
that occasion mischievous dissipation and loss of lalor; at
times, the constitution or the laws suspended or violated,
as in the case of the captured Duchess of BERRI and Louis
NAPOLEON, and the recent prohibition of the export ofgrain.
You have seen that, of late, the Belgian Government was
obliged, with the same view, to bolster up insolvent banks
and other joint-stock companies, and mammoth manufac-
turers and speculators. On the same account, if Lafitte's
Bank had been really-as it was for several days supposed
to be--in danger, the Bank of France, or the Treasury,
must have propped it, with whatever reluctance. If we
must have a monarchy, says a republican print, let us have
one tempered by insurrections. Most of the monarchies
seem to me to be swayed by the fear of them.
The chief daily law journal has just furnished some ap-
palling authentic statistics of the effects of the Carnival in
Paris, including that which ended, nominally, on the 13th
instant. It appears that the pledges at the Mont de Piete
(Central Pawn-Broking institution) were, from Ash-Wed-
nesday onwards, nearly double in number and value; the
sums drawn from the Saving Funds neatly the same; so
with the admissions into the hospitals, and the dead bodies
exposed at the Morgue. All this, compared with any oth-
er equal period of the year-and for some years past, the
like evidence of the penalties paid by the people for the
orgies of.the Jours Gras, was protracted for nearly a month
succeeding the Carnival. The tithe levied this year for
the benefit of the hospitals, on the proceeds of the recent
public balls of Paris, is estimated at 110,000 francs. Such
statistics, however, barely shadow forth, or simply leave to
be imagined, the extent and variety of the libertinism and
depravation, improvidence and waste of every kind, disease
and death in the most horrid forms, which those festivals
involve for the middle and lower classes.
In the last discourse or report of the Secretary General of
the French Society of Universal Statistics, I noticed the


remarks, that the population of a country and the number
of its cities were the certain indications of the degree of its
civilization ; that, in the advanced countries, (les pays per-
fectionnes,) men were agglomerated in large capitals or
populous cities; that, whether we consult ancient or mod-
ern history, we find, during forty centuries, an immense
metropolis wherever civilization has shone with most bril-
liancy. Very different definitions may be given, or views
taken, of national civilization and refinement. For myself,
who have paid special attention to Paris statistics of every
description, and studied this mighty metropolis under all its
aspects, and in all its pretensions, I have been brought to
coincide with the maxim of Mr. JEFFERSON, that great ci-.
ties are great sores on the body politic," and, even more, on
the body social and moral, the primary frame of true civili-
zation. My notion may appear to some quite heterodox or
wild, but it is, that if Paris were divided into at least three
or four portions, and each planted far out, France in gene-
ral would be considerably mere moral, rational, free; much
better governed, educated, and disciplined ; and thus more
highly civilized, or perfectionn6, than she is now, or will
be for many revolutions of our mother earth round that
luminary to which Paris is often proudly likened, with re-
ference even to the whole world. It is demonstrable by the
history of France, that, politically speaking, much more evil
than good has resulted to her from the capital, since the
foundation of the monarchy. Paris claims and exercises
the government and administration of all France; controls
supremely her resources, energies, opinions, and tastes;
absorbs most of her talent and wealth ; deposes or makes
her kings, dynasties, and cabinets; involves her at will in
disastrous revolutions and wars ; corrupts her morals and
sentiments, not -merely as the grand magnetic focus of vice
and- dissipation, but by the unbounded diffusion and influ-
ence of writings immoral, irreligious, and anarchical, and
the perversion of the fine arts in every possible device and
excess of caricature and obscenity. The case must be seen
and studied in detail to conceive the degree and universal-
ity in which self-government, independent judgment and
action, discretionary administration of local and personal
affairs, are wanting, nearly unthought of or unimagined,
throughout the province s.
The centralization so much cherished and vaunted, is in
fact the subjection of thirty-two millions of Frenchmen to
one million, or, rather, to the factions in the capital that in-
cessantly struggle for exclusive sway. And those thirty-
two millions, though pre-eminently favored in every re-
spect by Nature, are left, relatively to nearly all the rest
of Europe, without elementary education and internal im-
,im.iroment h while t hv nrnvfida an enormousn revenue for


the signals, the watch-words issue hence, as, on the eve
or (luring a general action, they would from the military
headquarters to the hostile forces in a field of battle.
The Coalition by which the political system is now vital-
ly threatened, was concerted by the Paris chiefs and mana-
gers, and the Deputies from the Provinces fell in, imme-
diately as they arrived-a week, more or less, before the
session-like so many sheep following a bell-wether. You
can understand, by the reciprocal arguments and imputa-.
tions of the Coalition and Court parties, that the represen-
tatives, candidates, and electoral bodies, universally, are
held to be at the command and drill of one or the other.
Sometimes a voice" has been raised in the Chamber
against the monopoly and prepotency of the capital, but
has scarcely ever obtained decent heed, much less practi-
cal success. Take a small sample in an extract which I
made two years ago from a speech of Mr. FOULD, a very
respectable Deputy, who could win no attention :
Gentlemen, you occupy yourselves with Paris alone. We
ought, however, to think of the Departments. All their money
is brought to Paris. I see great danger in that. The Depart-
ments are drained by the receivers-general of the taxes, and
by the Saving Funds system. All capital flows to Paris, to the
signal detriment of the Departments. If you allow large sums
to be deposited in your Saving Funds chests in the Provinces,
you will suffer by it, some years hence, serious inconvenience.
At.present you have collected a hundred millions of francs, and,
tojudge from the regular increase of the Saving Funds, you will
possess in this way ere long (at Paris) two or three hundred
millions, a moiety of which will be torn from the Provinces."
This prediction has been more than realized. The day
before yesterday appeared the election address of ODILLON
BARROT, who has been regarded as the special champion
of decentralization and the sovereignty of the nation. Yet,
to this topic, he does not hazard a single allusion at this
critical juncture. The Paris Committee of the Legitimists,
in their address, treat, indeed, of the propriety of the self
administration of townships, and the extension of the right
of municipal and political suffrage by a graduated scale of
election ; but they profess to aim (and partly by those
means) at the enlargement and corroboration of the royal
power-at a stronger political centralization, while they
decentralize for mere administrative and municipal objects.
Their drift, at the bottom, in whatever scheme of the kind,
a3 every body knows, is to obtain more scope for the in-
fluence which their landed possessions and personal rank
give them in the western and southern Departments.
During my passage to Havre, in the good ship Erie, I
conceived the project-which 1 have steadily pursued since
my arrival in Paris-of collecting, for a comprehensive,
though not ponderous book, a body of statistics, physical,
moral, and political, European and American, with a view
to comparisons and deductions in favor of American his-
tory, institutions, intellect, and character. Materials have
accumulated on my hands from French publications, the
chief journals of all the capitals of Europe, which are re-
gularly received here, and the reports and libraries of the
Statistical Societies. If I should be able, hereafter, to col-
late, digest, and apply them, agreeably to my design, you
will, I think, be, if not surprised, at least attracted and ex-
cited by the results, especially on the topic of immense
capitals and manufacturing communities. Jonah was sent
by the Lord to admonish Nineveh, and Jeremiah inspired
to lamet over the city of Jerusalem. The modern Baby-
Ions the Great would be the first objects of similar missions,
precisely for what they call their superior civilization. '
I related to you that I had seen in the Rue de Rivoli a
full-length portrait of the celebrated American Comedian
and Representative of New England rustic characters,"
Mr. HILL. Your eye may have been caught by his well-
displayed advertisement in several numbers of Galignani's
Messenger. Hle announced, for the evening of the 16th,
the Yankee Fireside, or Homespun Tales ;" tickets, each,
seven francs for the' first boxes, and five for all others.
The theatre which he chose does not admit an audience of
more than a few hundred persons. You know that a spe-
cial permit is necessary here for every such representation ;
and the celebrated Representative" looked a little aghast
when he first read in his license, as conditions, that the
Public must be gratuitously admitted to his Fireside; and
that he should abstain from sticking up bills. This smacked
of a Yankee trick. However, he soon learned that tickets
could be sold, and even advertised, notwithstanding the
official form. But Mr. HILL was far from filling the house ;
his audience consisted chiefly of American ladies and gen-
tlemen ; a few English only were attracted. His orches-
tra was composed of eight or ten artists, so called: who
played Yankee Doodle, and writhed under their own mu-
sic. His tales in verse and prose were protracted through
two mortal hours. According to the testimony borne to
me by some of the Americans who were present, the whole
was a failure. The many friends," at whose "earnest re-
quest" Mr. HILL played, were like those of the hare in the
fable. I hope that he covered his expenses; but I am not
absolutely sorry that the Yankees cannot 'be thus carica-
tured here, with even the little success which Mr. COOPER's
name and the title l'Amerique procure for his homespun
tale, Eve Effingham. We are abundantly and malignantly
enough caricatured by Europeans.
You will not suspect me of any affectation of patriotic
sensibility if I notice briefly this day-the anniversary of
WASHINGTON'S birth. There is nothing Pharisaical in the
expression of a regret that it is not to be publicly cele-
brated by the Americans in Paris, or distinguished in some
way by our national functionaries. The omission was sig-
nalized last year and the year before, in two of the Paris
Liberal journals, as indicative of lukewarmness, at least,
towards the memory of the Chief Founder of our Repub-
lic. I cannot explain it, but I reject that interpretation,
because national and republican feeling generally becomes
keener abroad, where we are less affected by those party
feuds and discontents which at home, in too many instances,
lessen its vivacity, alertness, and confidence. Public ho-
mage, rendered officially or otherwise, with decorum and
considerateness,to the name of WASHINGTON, could not be
invidious in any capital of Europe-that name being every
where honored without reserve. I have copied a beautiful
recent tribute to it from the Paris Revue des Deux Mondes ;
and you have read the admirable sketch in the last number
of the Edinburgh Review. As Speeches, which were not.
but should have been" spoken, are occasionally publish-
ed, I think that I may venture to offer you, unpretendingly,
a few toasts for an American dinner, which might have


been arranged here for this anniversary ;
Washington-The consummate and incomparable patriot-
so acknowledged .by the ruost enlightened of this hemisphere.
Lafayette-A name inseparable from that of Washington in
the hearts and homage of Americans, and in the annals and
glories of their Revolution. What champion of human rights
ever rendered service, and left a memory so precious to a for-
eign race What association of illustrious names so close and
just, from community of principles and ends, of private and
public virtue, of enterprise and danger, of exalted and tender
friendships?.
The Republic of the United Stales-Assured of superla-
tive prosperity as long as she shall duly venerate the character
and observe the precepts of her Hero.
France-Never backward in the tribute of honor to his mer-
its, and always an object of his heartfelt gratitude and concern.
Her weal will be ample, splendid, and durable, indeed, if it
should equal American wishes and sympathies.
Great Britain-The land of Washington's forefathers.
We are proud of our common descent, and feel the value of our
manifold connexion. Let the rivalry be in the liberalities of
spirit and the arts of peace. When the option is between mu-
tual good and evil incalculable, can self-love or simple reason
hesitate ?
The President of the United States-The only political
chief with a perfect model, and thus doubly responsible to his
constituents and mankind.
King Louis Philippe-A choice ratified by a mighty Peo-
ple, and acknowledging the supremacy of the national will: a
thorough comprehension of each other, the certain guarantee of
both.
Americans at Home and Abroad-Patriotic in proportion
to the credit which they assert or procure for their country.
The Writings of Washington and Lafayette, recently
published-Renewing and confirming the admiration which
their lives had excited-proving and perpetuating the greatness
of their motives and faculties.

THE TWO COLONIES.:

BY TYRONE POWER.

Two colonies yet exist within Pennsylvania-samples of
both, indeed, may be found within a few miles of Philadel-
phia-and these constitute,with me, a never failing source of
interest and amusement. They are composed of Dutch and
Irish, often located on adjoining townships, but keeping
their borders as clearly defined as though the wall of China
were drawn between them. No two bodies exist in Nature
more repellant ; neither time, nor the necessities of traffic,
which daily arise amongst a growing population, can induce
a repeal of their tacit non-intercourse system, or even
render them tolerant of each other. 1 have understood
that Pat has, on occasions of high festivity, been known to
extend his courtesy so far as to pay his German neighbors
a call to inquire kindly whether any gentleman in the
place might be inclined for a fight," but this evidence of
good nature appears to have been neither understood nor
reciprocated, and, proof against the blandishment, Myn-
heer was not to be hammered into contact with dem wild
Irisher."
It is a curious matter to observe the purity with which
both people have conserved the dialect of their respective
countries, and the integrity of their manners, costume, pre-
judices, nay, their very air-all of which they yet present
fresh and characteristic, as imported by their ancestors, al-
though some of them are the third in descent from the first
colonists. Differing in all other paticula-rs, on this point
of character theii similarity is striking.
Amongst the Germans, I have had families pointed out
to me, whose fathers beheld the commencement of the war
of Independence in Pennsylvania, yet who are at this day
as ignorant of its language, extent, policy, or population,
as was the worthy pastor of whom it is related, that, hav-
ing been requested to communicate to his flock the want of
supplies which existed in the American camp, he assured
the authorities that he had done so, as well as described to
them the exact state of affairs.
I said to dem," he repeated in English, Get op min
broders and mine zisters, und put em paerd by die vagen, mit
brood and corn ; mit schaap's flesh and flesh of die groote
bigs, und oss flesh; alias be brepare to go op de vay, mit
oder goed mens, to sooply General Vashington, who fight-
ing die Englishe Konig vor our peoples, und der life, und
der liberdies, opon dem banks of the Schuylkill, dies side
of die Vestern Indies."
In his piggery of a residence and his palace of a barn, in
his wagon, his oven, his pipe, his person and physiognomy,
the third in descent from the worthies exhorted above, re-
mains unchanged. The cases upon which, as a juryman,
he decides, he hears through the medium of an official in-
terpreter ; he has his own journal which serves out his own
portion of politics to him in Low Dutch, and in the same
language is printed such portions of the acts of the State
Legislature as may in any way relate to the section he in-
habits; the only portion of the community, indeed, which
he knows, or cares to know any thing about.
My honest countrymen of the same class, I can answer
for being as slightly sophisticated astheir colder neighbors;
it is true their tattered robes have been superseded by suffi-
cient clothing, and a bit of good broadcloth for Sunday or
Saint's day, and their protracted lenten fare exchanged
for abundance of good meat, and bread, and tay-galore for
the priest and the mistress; but when politics or any stir-
ring cause is offered to them, their feelings are found to be
as excitable, and their temperament as fiery, as though still
standing on the banks of the Suir or the Shannon.
On all occasions of rustic holiday, they may yet be read-
ily recognized by their slinging gait, the bit of a stick borne
in the hollow of their hand, the inimitable shape and set of
the hat, the love of top-coats in the men, and the abiding
taste for red ribands and silk gowns amongst the women.
The inherent difference between the two people is never
more strikingly perceived than when you have occasion to
make any inquiry whilst passing through their villages.
Pull up your horse by a group of little Dutchmen,in order
to learn your way or ask any information, and the chance
is, they either run away upon instinct," or are screamed
at to come within doors by their prudent mothers: upon
which cry they scatter, like scared rabbits f,r the warren,
leaving you to Try Turner," or any other shop within
hail.
For myself, after a slight experience, I succeeded with
my friends to admiration: the few sentences of indifferent
Dutch which I yet conserved from my education amongst
the Vee boors at the Cape, served as a passport to their
civility. Without this accomplishment, all strangers are
suspected of being Irishers; and, as such, partake of the
dislike and dread in which their more mercurial neighbors
are held by this sober-sided and close-handed generation.
On the other hand, enter an Irish village, and, by any
chance, see theyoung villains precipitated out ofthe common
school: call to one of these, and a dozen will be under your
horse's feet in a moment, prompt in their replies, even if
ignorant of that you seek to learn ; and ready and willing
to show you any place or road they know any thing, or
nothing, about. I have frequently, on these occasions,
when asked to walk into their cabin by the old people, on
hearing their accent, and seeing myself thus surrounded,
almost doubted my being in the valley of Pennsylvania.
So little indeed does the accent of the Irish-American,
who lives exclusively amongst his own people in the coun-
try parts, differ from that of the settler of a year, that, on oc-
casions of closely contested elections, this leads to imposi-
tion on the one hand and vexation on the other; and it is
by no means uncommon for a man whose father was born
in the States, to be questioned as to his right of citizenship,
and requested to bring proofs of a three years' residence.

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

TO THE EDITORS.

GENTLEMEN : Will you oblige a constant sub.
scriber by republishing in your paper the Report
made in secret session of the Senate on the 21st
March, 1832, by Mr. TAZEWELL, then chairman
of the Committee on Foreign Relations, touch-
ing the subject of the Maine boundary. The
other members of that committee were Messrs.
FORSYTH, (the present Secretary of State,) KING,
of Alabama, WHITE, of Tennessee, and BELL, of
New Hampshire, and all these gentlemen were
understood as concurring in that report at the
time, except Mr. BELL, if my memory be cor-
rect. Mr, FORSYTH not only concurred in
this report, which declares expressly that the
King of the Netherlands has by his award
decided the whole subject," and concludes with
a proposition to stand by that award, but he so-
lemnly recorded his vote in favor of that propo-
sition, by voting against a motion to strike it
out.* There appear to have been but eight Sen-
ators at that day who voted to give up the terri-
tory which the King of the Netherlands recom-
mended us to cede away to Great Britain, and Mr.
FORSYTH was one of the eight. Can you in-
form me whether it appears, from any docu-
mentary or other evidence, that Mr. FORSYTH
has ever changed the opinion he then gave in
favor of giving up our claim to that disputed
territory ? REMINISCENS.

The Editors, without being able to give the
information required, comply with their respect-
ed Correspondent's request, by publishing the
following Report:
IN SENATE, MARCH 21, 1832.


Mr. TAZEWELL, from the Committee on Foreign Rela-
tions, to whom were referred the several messages of the
President of the United States of the 7th and 21st of De-
cember, 1831, of the 27th of January and 8th of February,
1832, together with the several documents which accom-
panied the same ; and to whom were also referred the mo-
tion and resolution submitted to the Senate by one of the
Senators from the State of Maine, on the 24th day of Ja-
nuary last past, submitted the following report:
That this committee have bestowed upon the several
subjects to them referred, all the attention which their
great importance demanded. At the commencement of
their examination of these interesting subjects, every mem-
ber of this committee was equally aware that their feel-
ings, as citizens ot the United States, might very probably
mislead any judgment they might be disposed to form in
regard to the correctness of the determination of his Ma-
jesty the King of the Netherlands, which proposes to es-
tablish the boundary between the possessions of the United
States and those of his Majesty the King of Great Britain.
Every argument which suggested itself to the-mind of any
member of this committee, to prove the truth and justice
of the several positions for which the United States have
contended in the course of the discussion of this subject,
had already been presented by their different agents, and
had proved unsatisfactory both to Great Britain and to the
arbitrator mutually chosen by the two Powers to settle
and determine the subject of difference between them.
This circumstance, of itself, was sufficient to warn the
committee against confiding too implicitly in their own
opinions, with regard to a matter.as to which they were
conscious of feeling so deep an interest, and to induce
them to view the subject as it now exists, rather than to
consider it as presenting a question still open for discussion.
This committee entertain no doubt of the perfect right
of the United States to refuse to abide by the award of
his Majesty the King of the Netherlands, if the constitut-
ed authorities of the United States shall think that this
award is not made within the terms or meaning of the sub-
mission; anJ they are aware that many reasons exist
which, to the minds of our own citizens at least, may ap-
pear strong, to induce the opinion that such is the case.
But will such arguments satisfy others ? and, if not, what
will be the effect of rejecting this award ? These are the
only questions which this committee think it necessary
now to examine.
The history of this country will show that the question,
what is the true Northeastern boundary of the present
United States, has been often discussed between the diffe-
rent parties interested in its decision. While France held
the territory contiguous to the former colonies of Great
Britain on their Northern and Eastern frontier, this ques-
tion then disturbed the relations of these two Powers, and
it was only settled by the treaty which transferred all the
dominions of the former, in this quarter, to the latter. Not.
long after that event, the same question was revived be-
tween Great Britain and her then colony of Massachusetts.
As the King of Great Britain was at that time the sove-
reign of all the Provinces limited by this boundary, no mat-
ter where it was established, or how it was run; and as
no private rights had then been acquired near to the line
which was ultimately settled by him as the boundary of
these Provinces, it was then of little moment to any where
this line was fixed. Hence, probably, in establishing the
Northeastern boundary of Massachusetts at that time, but
little regard was paid to accuracy of description or preci-
sion of terms, and a line was fixed upon, of which the
terminus a quo" was not m >re certainly described than
the terminus ad quem." Before it became necessary to
ascertain this line with any degree of accuracy, our Re-
volution commenced, and the uncertain boundary esta-
blished by the previous act of the Government of Great
Britain was recognized by the treaty of 1783 as the North-
eastern boundary of the United States.
Thus the old question, what this boundary line was,
and where it ran, was revised. The settlement of this
question constituted the subject of the fifth article of the
treaty between the United Sta'tes and Great Britain in
1794 ; and it was supposed by both the parties to be deter-
mined with sufficient accuracy by the final decision of the
commissioners appointed in pursuance of that article. It
- is worthy of remark here, that the decision of these com-
missioners differed not less widely from the positions con-
tended for by each of the two disagreeing parties at that
time, than does the present determination of his Majesty
the King of the Netherlands, from the positions assumed
by each of the same parties upon this occasion. Yet both
the United States and Great Britain concurred in adopting
the decision of these commissioners, although it varied es-
sentially from the claim of boundary set up by each of the
two Powers.
This decision settled definitively the uncertain "termi-
nus a quo" the Northeastern boundary of the United
States was to run; and as no difference then existed be-
tween the two Powers as to the course or direction of this
line of boundary, the terminus ad quem" was also sup-
posed to be fixed. Doubts being afterwards suggested on
the part of Great Britain as to this point, it was the pur-
pose of the fifth article of the treaty of Ghent, in 1814,
to remove these doubts, by adopting a mode for settling
them, similar to that which had been found satisfactory to
the parties in the previous case. The commissioners ap-
pointed by the high contracting parties, in pursuance of
this fifth article of the treaty of Ghent, could neither
agree in their opinions, or effect any other adjustment of
the matter to them referred; therefore, the event contem-
plated by that article having thus occurred, it became ne-
cessary, under the provisions of this treaty, that the two
Powers should refer the subject to some friendly Sovereign
or State, to be named by them for that purpose, who should
determine the same. His Majesty the King of the Neth-
erlands was the friendly Sovereign named by the two high
contracting parties for this purpose. He having accepted
the functions of arbitrator so conferred upon him, by his


Should this prove true, if the United States, on theil
part, refuse to abide by this award, the necessary conse-
quence must be, that the pretensions heretofore set up by
Great Britain, and which are in part rejected by the award,
will be revived and insistedl upon by her in their full ex-
tent. In what mode, then, can the controversy so revived
be settled 1
A new negotiation cannot be supposed likely to produce
more beneficial results than those which have already
taken place. In the discussions which were had at
Ghent, in those carried on between the commissioners ap-
pointed to determine the question of boundary, and in
those addressed to his Majesty the King of the Nether-
lands, the argument on either side seems to have been ex-
hausted. No profitable result, then, can be expected from
reviving a discussion in which nothing new can be pre-
sented on either side, and in which the rights and interests
of the parties, whatever these may be, remain as heretofore.
Besides, previously to entering upon such a negotiation,
something must be agreed upon in regard to the disputed
territory. Recent events very plainly show that, without
some agreement upon this point, border conflicts will inev-
itably take place between the citizens and subjects of the
two Powers who claim this territory; which conflicts must
soon produce a general war between these Powers. What,
then, is to be done with this subject of controversy, pend-
ing the negotiation instituted to adjust the title to it ?
A stipulation that it shall remain, as now, unoccupied
by either party, until the question of right is settled, seems
to favor the views and policy of Great Britain so decidedly,
that such a stipulation would amount in effect to an aban-
donment of claim on our part to the whole subject. No
termination favorable to the United States ought to be ex-
pected from any negotiation which holds out such an in-
ducqment to the other party for procrastination and delay.
The same result is equally probable, if each party should
be permitted to occupy such portion of the disputed terri-
tory as is allotted to them respectively under the award,
which would be then declared not to be obligatory upon
either. In the latter case, too, the matter would be made
of still more difficult adjustment, by reason of the rights
and interests which the citizens and subjects of each of the
two parties would acquire in the territory yielded to the
occupation of the other; and a proposition that one should
occupy the portion of the territory assigned to it, while the
negotiation was pending in regard to the right of the other
to the remaining portion of the same territory, which
should not be occupied by that other until the question of
right was finally determined, would be a proposition sc
wanting in reciprocity, that it ought not to be made by any
Power which pays proper regard to its own character.
Under such circumstances, where negotiation promises
to yield nothing of good, but one resort remains. To this
last resort the committee do not understand that even the
State of Maine itself is willing now to come. But, if the
case was different, it would present a question worthy of
the most grave consideration, whether the United States
should ever willingly involve themselves in war with any
, Power whatever, to maintain an asserted right to terri-
tory long disputed, which had been determined not to be
theirs by an arbitrator chosen by themselves. Although
it may perhaps be truly said in this case that the United
States are not bound by this award, as such, yet it will be
considered by all the civilized world as the impartial opi-
nion of a disinterested judge, upon a question of much
perplexity and difficulty. Such an opinion would have
the effect of placing us (seemingly, at least,) in the wrong,
* and therefore would greatly impair the moral force the
United States have always brought into every contest in
which they have hitherto been involved.
These considerations have induced this committee to
think that the policy of the United States will be best con-
sulted by announcing to Great Britain their willingness to
assent to this award. But as the boundary which it esta-
blishes will probably be found not less inconvenient to
Great Britain than to the United States, and as, under the
award, the navigation of the river St. John and its tribu-
tary streams is not made free and common to both parties,
this committee are of opinion that it will be advisable for
the President, in communicating to Great Britain his de-
termination to abide by the award, to signify to that Power
his desire to open a new negotiation, for the purpose of set-
tling a more convenient boundary between the territories
of the two empires, than that which is so established ; and,
also, for securing to each party the free navigation of the
liver St. John and its tributary streams, from its mouth to
their respective sources. Should Great Britain accede to
this overture, if, in the course of the negotiation, it is found
practicable so to do, the President will of course avail him-
self of any and every occasion to obtain a boundary more
acceptable to the State of Maine than that which is esta-
blished by the determination of his Majesty the King of
the Netherlands.
In regard to the objections urged to this award in the
resolutions which have also been referred to this commit-
tee, they deem it only necessary to say that, as the provi-
sions of the fifth article of the treaty of Ghent admit the
fact that the true boundary of the United States, thereby
referred to, was not then settled, and establish a mode
whereby this boundary might thereafter be ascertained
and determined, it cannot be admitted that the subsequent
settlement of this matter by the mode then agreed upon can
properly be considered as a cession or transfer to a foreign
nation of any portion of the territory or inhabitants of any
one of the United States.
If the commissioners appointed to determine this matter
had concurred in opinion, as they did in 1795, although the
determination might have been, as it then was, in opposi-
tion to the pretensions set up by each of the disagreeing
parties, none can believe that their award would not have
been held as conclusive as was that referred to, although
both these awards would have been subject to precisely the
same objections which are now urged. And, so far as the
question of authority is concerned, it would be impossible
to show that the umpire had less authority over the subject
than the disagreeing commissioners possessed. In no case
can the adjustment of any controversy be properly regarded
as an abandonment of right in the subject, the title to which
is contested. In all such cases, the decision does nothing
more than to determine in which of the two disagreeing
parties the right originally was; and neither can properly
be said to yield to the other that which the decision affirms


to have always belonged to that other. So that the ques-
tion recurs-Will the United States adopt this award as
determining what was their original and true boundary ?
Once admit the award to be binding on our faith, and the
question of right ceases; and, even if the award be set
aside, the determination not to abide by it must never be
rested upon the ground that it deprives us of rights which
we believe to be ours, but upon the ground that it decides
matter which was never submitted to arbitrament. If the
authority to decide the question is admitted, the correct-
ness of the decision can never be questioned, except by im-
pugning the-integrity of the judge, a charge which none
can prefer or sustain in this case.
The committee therefore recommend to the Senate to
adopt the following resolution:
Resolved, That the Senate advise the President to ex-
press to his Majesty the King of the Netherlands the assent
of the United States to the determination made by him,
and consent to the execution of the same.

WASHINGTON.
Liberty and Union,now and forever, one and
inseparable."

MONDAY, MAY 20, 1839.

It has been heretofore stated in the news-
papers that R. H. MENEFEE, the talented Re-
.presentative in Congress from Kentucky, had
declined being re-elected to the station which
he has occupied with so much credit to him-
self and his State. We were unwilling to be-
lieve the statement, and hoped, if it was true,
he would yet reconsider his determination. We
are obliged now to give credit to it; for we
havetist learnt, upon sufficient authority, that
he has removed his residence from Mount Ster-
ling to Lexington, (in another district,) where
no doubt he is about to pursue his profession,
under a sense of what is due to the interest of
his family.

We very much regret to learn that Mr.
RENCHER, for several years past an independent
and able Representative in Congress from the
State of NORTH CAROLINA, has positively de-
clined being a candidate for re-election. To
this determination he is no doubt urged, in
part at least, by the necessity of devoting- his
attention undividedly to his private affairs.

We understand that General JAMES HAMIL-
TON, of South Carolina, recently appointed a
commissioner on the part of the Republic of
Texas to negotiate a loan of five millions of dol-
lars for that Government, arrived in this city on
Friday last, to make some arrangements prepara-
tory to his embarking for Europe in the Great
Western, on the 13th June.
Our opinion of the participation of our citi-
zens, with a mere handful of the actual residents
of Texas, in the invasion and forcible seizure of
that territory, whilst yet a component part of
the Republic of MEXICO, has been too frequent-
ly expressed to need to be here repeated.
Whilst, however, we have seen no reason in
subsequent events to change that opinion, yet,
now that Texas has been recognized by our Go-
vernment, and is about, with vast natural're-
sources, to take her rank among the nations of'
the earth, we are not disposed to withhold from
her people the justice they may be entitled to,
in their onward progress; more especially if
they add another link to the golden chain of
human civilization.
We do not see why General HAMILTON should


not succeed in his mission.


Independently of


Texas having a public domain, comprehending,
we think, an area of one hundred and fifty mil-
lions of the most fertile land on the face of the
earth, with a climate propitious to the cultiva-
tion of the most valuable of its staples, she will
have, it is likewise said, during the current year,
a revenue from her customs of a million of dol-
lars, and fees on land-entries to the extent of
half a million more.
But, we confess, great as these material sources
of credit may be, we place, more reliance, as a
guaranty for her obligations, on the stability her
Government and institutions are seemingly as-
suming, and on the apparent moderation of her policy.
In the first place, we know that s.he has sent
a Minister to MEXICO to treat for peace-and, it
is said, with every probability of success-not
alone to stop the lust for conquest among her
people, but to make indemnity to that country,
that she may have a better claim to the region
she has acquired than the mere tenure 4of the
sword.
In the next place, it is understood that she
has resisted all overtures and temptations to
unite with either party in the civil war now rag-
ing in MEXIco, whilst she seems equally to have
kept aloof in the recent war between FRANCE
and that country from all alliances that might
have made her tributary to a first-rate European
Power, even at the price of her recognition and
countenance.
These are all good omens, and, as now no-
thing apparently can prevent Texas from becom-
ing a prosperous and independent nation, we
trust she will add another enduring testimonial
to the inherent faculty of the descendants from
Eiropean stock to build up, even in the solitary
recess of the wilderness, those civil and political
structures which are calculated to give an
abiding place to the empire of religion, literature,
and laws.

We nailed to the counter, on Saturday last, a miserable
calumny, devised by whom we know not, but published as
true by a writer for the Richmond Enquirer said to be in
the employ of the Government. A certain charge made
by that writer, we pronounced false and unfounded, so far
as it was intended to apply to the publishers of this paper.
The Official Editor in this city has taken up and affirm-
ed the charge upon some authority which he pretends to
have for doing so. We repeat, therefore, that the whole
charge is, in every particular and in any construction of it,
wherever originated, or by whorrsoever repeated, false, un-
founded, and calumnious; sufficiently so to entitle the
fabricator or wilful utterer ot t to the first vacant place in
the Penitentiary, if he have interest enough in Court to
be promoted to it,
The official calumniator 'intimates that the allegations
of the writer in the Richmond Enquirer have been hereto-
fore made in the Globa, and have not been answered. To
which we reply that they were not considered worthy of


FURTHER FROM FLORIDA.

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE NATIONAL GAZETTE.
GAREY'S FERRY, (E. F.) MAY 3, 1839.
News has just reached here from Tampa Bay that the
chief Nea-thlocko-Emathla, who voluntarily-surrendered,
with others, about two months ago, and was retained by
Gen. TAYLOR as an influential caterer for emigrating par-
ties, had absented himself for several days previous to the
22d of last month, and during that night he returned with a
large party of hostile Seminoles and forced off a considera-
ble number of the people who had prepared for emigration.
Among the latter was a Spaniard, whom the chief released,
and sent back to Lieut. Col. CUMMINGS, with an assurance
that neither he nor his people would attend the Council
proposed by Gen. MACOMB, as the white man had two faces;
that while a paper proposing a treaty was circulating among
them, the soldiers were hunting them down; that the In-
dians will make no treaty, and are prepared to fight as
long as they can obtain ammunition, or can use the knife.
Gen. TAYLOR'S confidence in Nea-thlocko-Emathla was
almost unbounded; relying very much upon his influence
in obtaining the general consent of the nation to meet Gen.
MACOMB in Council. The chief was under an engagement
to meet Gen. TAYLOR at Fort White, near the Suwannee,
on the same day he returned to his nation.
For two or three days after, the Indians frequently ap-
proached within a few yards of the guard-house at Fort
rooke, (Tampa Bay,) and are doubtless still anxiously
watching every movement. 1 am satisfied that there has
been no period during the war that our operations have
not been anticipated by the Seminolesi and our designs
frustrated by their unceasing vigilance. They watched
DADE and his party, and closely beset him, until their num-
bers sufficiently increased to warrant a successful attack
and massacre; while many miles distant, on the same day,
Gen. THOMPSON fell a victim to his misplaced confidence
in that villanous drunkard and thief. Powell, whom some
of the fancy have ignorantly painted and sketched as one
of the noblest and most undaunted of his race. General
CLINCH'S passage of the Wythlacooche was promptly dis-
puted three days after, forty or fifty miles distant from the
scenes of the other actions ; and when Gen. GAINES at-
tempted to ford the river two months thereafter, the watch-
ful sentinels were there to check his progress; and so have
they exercised a vigilant surveillance over every operation
of every command seat against them.
Many hundred more of our soldiers and citizens might
have been destroyed ; bat I am convinced, from an accurate
observation of affairs in this quarter, that they have avoid-
ed (I mean the great body of the nation and chiefs) mur-
ders, in many, many instances, under the hope that their
forbearance would induce us to relax our determination of
removal. The few depredations and murders west of the
Suwannee, within the last few months, were most proba-
bly committed by some outlaws or vagabonds, from which
no nation on earth can claim exemption. It may appear to
be an extravagant expression of confidence, but I have not
the slightest doubt that if all our troops south of this place
were withdrawn, and no hostile demonstration made against
them, the Indians would evince a peaceable disposition.
But the wholedifficulty was caused by a fraudulent treaty,
and the war is against that treaty. We require a fulfil-
ment of its stipulations, they deny its validity. As we in-
sist upon the justice of the measure, and are contending
for principles, policy forbids a withdrawal of our troops ex-
cept by treaty. But, I reiterate, if it were done without
negotiation, the most peaceful results would flow from it-
notwithstanding it would be a tacit admission that we had
discovered we were wrong.
GAREY'S FERRY, (E. F.) MAY 6, 1839.
By an express which left General MACOMB on the 4th
inst. we learn that his efforts to obtain a hearing among the
Indians, have, so far, been attended with but indifferent
success. Within two weeks, four whites have been killed
in battle within a few miles of the General's quarters; in-
deed, every express brings some intelligence of the Indians
moving north into summerr quarters. The system of" mil-
itary occupancy" seems to work indifferently bad. You
know, I presume, that the country north of the Wythlacoo-
che, east of the Suwannee, a id south of the Georgia lime,
has been laid off in squares of twenty miles, near the cen-
tre of which a military work is to be,erected, and the square
committed to the charge of one or two companies, the com-
mander of which is responsible that no murders are com.
mitted, and that no Indians remain within its bounds. By
this system, Gen. TAYLOR calculated upon driving ,the In-
dians aouth of the Wythlacooche, and, by following ,up the,
system, eventually drive them to the jumping-off place.
But it is morally certain that more Indians are rnw within
the square than there have been for several months previous.
- Another express has just arrived from Fort King, and
brings information of a formal application of Gen. TAYLOR
to be relieved of the command in Florida. No Indians have
as yet come in, and the General despairs of success in ne-
gotiating. He will probably remain here a month longer;
A proposition of a most singuear character has been made
to the President, and referred to the .Secretary of War, and
by him submitted to Gen. MACOMB. An individual from
the North proposes the employment of Newfoundland
Dogs, which he states he will furnish at sir dollars per
head; or he will contract to terminate the war within a
specified time, upon certain conditions. The General hlas
not yet decided upon this novel proposition, though he :has
it under consideration.

Newspaper readers in general are familiar with the
"Letters from under a Bridge," as among the mostspright-
ly and graceful essays which the American, and, in truth,
any press has at any time given to the Public. It is this
series which Mr. Colman has now collected in a neat vo-
lume, under the above recited outree and most awkward
title. They were written, we are told in the publisher's
advertisement, "in the valley of the Susquehannah, from
a beautiful glen, some eighty miles above Wyoming. They
were addressed to the friend to whom they are inscribed;
but, as they embody a freshly drawn picture of the scenery
and mode of life on the banks of the beautiful river cele-
brated by the muse of Campbell, it has been thought worth
while to collect them in a volume." They are from the
polished pen of Mr. N. P. WILLIS.-Newark Daily Adv.

HOME INTELLIGENCE.
REPORTED FOR THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

CIRCUIT COURT.-Jurors and others summoned to attend
the Circuit Court of the District of Columbia, for the coun-
ty of Washington, are reminded that the Court will meet
this morning, at 10 o'clock, pursuant to adjournment. We
are informed that there are still some very important causes
to be tried, and that it is probable the Court will be con-
tinued for one or two weeks longer. The jury have alrea-
dy been in attendance four weeks.

HOME MANUFACTURE OF LIME.-It has been more than
once suggested to us, by gentlemen who are entirely dis-
connected with the Washington Lime Factories, but who,
nevertheless, take a lively interest in the success of our
home manufactures, that a passing notice ought to be ta-
ken of the Lime Factories in the western part of this city,
which are now in active operation, and under the direction
and control of several of our most enterprising and valua-
ble citizens. In conformity, then, to those suggestions,
and from a full conviction that such a notice will prove ac-
ceptable to our citizens generally, and to those who are di-
rectly or indirectly engaged in' building operations especial-
ly, we submit the following facts and observations, which
we have obtained from an authentic and respectable source.
Until within five or six years past, the citizens of the
District of Columbia were dependent on the North for a
supply of lime, since which time three extensive manufac-
*tories of that article have been put into operation in the
First Ward of this city, which manufactories are, at this
time, competent to furnish all the lime required in the Dis-
trict of Columbia and the surrounding vicinage; also, to
furnish lime for exportation to supply some of the South-
ern cities.
The quantity used in the District of Columbia may be
estimated at 40,000 barrels, which, at the prices heretofore
paid for Thomaston lime, averaging $1 75 per barrel,
would amount to $70,000. This amount, by using the
home-manufactured article, would be retained within the
District, whilst, at the same time, 621 cents per barred the
difference between the cost of Thomaston lime and the
cost of the Potomac lime, amounting to $25,000, would
be actually saved to the purchasers.
The Potomac lime, made in this city, sells in the South-
ern market 33 cents higher than Thomaston lime; thus
it would seem that our distant neighbors estimate our lime
according to its real value, whilst the citizens of the Dis-
trict encourage the importation of an inferior article, which
they sell at 33 cents more than the fine Potomac lime is
furnished for, fresh from the kilns, and delivered in any
part of the city.
It has been asserted that Potomac lime would not an-
swer for plastering; it is now, however, ascertained beyond
a doubt that the wood-burnt lime made in this city is equal
to any that has ever been used, either for plastering or other
work to which lime is applicable. Some of the rooms in
the new Treasury building have been finished with Poto-
mac lime, and, on examination, they will not suffer in
comparison with any finished with Thomaston or other
lime. The manufacturers of lime in this city are well de-
serving of the patronage of their fellow-citizens, for, whilst
they have furnished profitable employment to hundreds,
they have not yet made one dollar for themselves.
These facts are recommended to the candid and serious
consideration of mechanics, builders, and the citizens of
the District generally; and, at a time when so many new
buildings are in progress and about to be commenced in
every ward of this city, when so much lime must necessa-
rily be wanted for building operations, we cannot permit
ourselves to doubt that the claims of the home-made arti-
cle will be duly appreciated.

CENTRE MARKET.-This market on Saturday last was
pretty well supplied with vegetables and fruit, with a good
supply of meat and other marketable provisions. The fish
market was very poorly attended, as there was no rock,
and quite a slim display of shad, herring, perch, &c. though
sturgeon was abundant. In the vegetable market was a
good stock of country produce, and plenty of the common
vegetables of the season, such as fresh onions, radishes,
asparagus, lettuce, cabbage, &c. a small quantity of new
potatoes selling at 37J cents per quart; abundance of green
peas, selling at $1 25 cents per bushel; a plentiful supply
of strawberries, some of very large and superior kind from
the garden of Mr. CAMMACK. We also noticed a few
cherries; not sufficiently ripe to be very palatable, offered
at 16 cents per qualt.
There have been some few variations in the price of pro-
visions since we last quoted, which will be noted below:
Beef, 12 to 15 cents per lb. Print Butter, 37j per lb.
Corned beef, 10 do Sausages, 16 cents per lb.
Mutton, 10 to 12 do Chickens, 75 cts. per pr.
Pork, 14 do Eggs, 15 cls. per dozen
Veal, 10 do White corn meal, $1 06 bush.
Lamb, 62 cts. to 75 per quar. Oats, 55 do
Hams, 15 cents per lb. Shelled Corn, 95 do
Shoulders, 14 do Mercer Potatoes, $1 50 do
Middlings, 14 do Peas, $1 25 do
Lard, 15 do Potatoes, (new,) 37A per qr.

EDITORS' CORRESPONDENCE.

NEW YORK, MAY IS.
A good deal of attention is given to-day to"
the departure of the Liverpool--the fact that
Mr. WEBSTER being one of the passengers at-
tracting much notice. On Thursday evening m
party of gentlemen, in a private way, gave Mr.
WEBSTER a dinner at the Astor House, having
no reference to party purposes, but intending it
as a parting dinner to an old friend, who was
about to cross the sea. Men of all parties irn
this city feel proud of DANIEL WEBSTER,.as a
good specimen of an American.
Among the passengers in the packet-ship
Philadelphia, now due here, and hourly expect-
ed, is JOHN VAN BUREN, Esq. "Prince John,"
as he is familiarly called.
The departure of a steam-ship for Europe
creates a great deal of activity in the marts
where take place the transactions in foreign ex-
change. The operations have been large, and
the rates closed heavily at 1093- to 1091. This
news imparted not a little satisfaction to Wall
street, for the tendency had been upward, and
there began to be some fears that the rates would
so go up as to draw specie; but a decline and
heavy sales soon manifested that there would be
no call for specie, and the result has been, to-
day, a liveliness in the stock market and an ad-
vance in prices. The money market -iere is
now in quite a satisfactory condition. Anxiety
is over.
In the case of the Government vs. Gouverneur,
the jury yesterday, after being out a very long
while, returned a verdict of $26,000 in favor of
the United States. On an item of $6,000 the
jury stated they could come to, no decision.
The case is to be taken up to the Supreme


Court.


This trial has developed some very re-


markable facts respecting the management of
the Post Office Department, confirming all and
more than all Mr. EWING brought out in his
great Post Office Report. Of the justice of the
verdict I have no means of forming at opinion,
but it seems to be the general opinion that the
jury.were left to grope their way through the
darkness of the Post Office accounts, and to
jump at what they guessed to be a just decision.
Our canal is again in lively business. bThe
breaches are all repaired. It is estimated that
100,000 barrels of flour are on the way between
this city and Rochester.
A case of forgery on the part of a broker in
Wall street was yesterday brought to light. TY-
SON is the name of the broker. He is said to be
on the way to Texas. He is respectably con-
nected here.

TUCKY, Captain Holmes, will commence to run three
tmnes a week (alternately) on Monday, the 4th of March next,
leaving the lower end of Spear's wharf every Monday, Wed-
nesday, and Friday evenings, 'it half past 3 o clock, and arrive

and thence in steamboats to Charleston, which is the quickest,
cheapest, and most comfortable route.

JEWESS, for the purpose of running a daily line, due notice
will be given thereof; and the company hope that travellers
will patronize this line, assuring them that nothing shall be
wanting on their part to give comfort and despatch.

plainants are his executors ; that William Bean is dead, and
that Dorcas Bean and Henry B. Martin (now residing in the
State of Mississippi)are the devisees of the said land under the
will of said Bean ; that none of the money has been paid; that
the bill is filed for the purpose of obtaining decree for the

James J. Gough, trustee of Robert McK. Hammett,
vs.
Robert McK. Hammett and George Hammett.
HE BILL in this cause states that on the 12th day of
March, 1838, Robert McKelvie Hammett, one of the de-
fendants, became a petitioner for the benefit of the insolvent laws
of Maryland, and that the complainant was appointed his per-
manent trustee ; that on the schedule of the property given in
by the insolvent were three tracts of land, one called Mill Pond,
one called Stiles's Chance, and the other called Bellwood ; that
prior to the said Robert McKelvie's said petition, he, being large-
ly indebted to divers persons and beyond his means of payment,
to wit, on the 22d of February, 1838, did, by deed of bargain
and sale, convey to one George Hammett, of the city of New
Orleans, in the State of Louisiana, in fee, the said tracts of land,
which said tracts of land were so conveyed without full and valu-
able consideration, and to protect them from all liability for the
debts of the said Robert McKelvie. The bill prays that the said
defendants be required to declare on oath, whether any, and, if
any, what consideration was given by the said George Hammett
to the said Robert McKelvie Hammett for the said tracts of
land. The bill further prays that the said deed be cancelled,
and that the same be sold subject to the payment of said Robert
McKelvie's debts. It is therefore ordered, this 20th day of
April, 1839, that George Hammett be and appear in this Court
on or before the first Monday of August next, and put in his
answer, on oath, to the said bill, and in default thereof that said
bill be taken pro ceonfesso against him, provided a copy of this
order shall be inserted in some newspaper published in the city
of Washington, once a week for three successive months before
the first Monday in August next.

THE STATE OF SOUTH C iROLINA.
Charleston District-In Chancery.
EWIS CRUGER, administrator of Charles Murray,
complainant, vs. John Ferrie, or his heirs, P. M. Nightin-
gale and William C. Daniel, defendants.
By this bill the complainant seeks payment of a mortgage of
a plantation called Nelville. John Ferrie was seized of the said
plantation, subject to the mortgage to which the complainant en-
titles himself, and subject to the equitable lien to which the de-
fendant P. M. Nightingale entitles himself, as the personal re-
presentative of Nathaniel Greene, General in the armies of the
United States, commanding the Southern Division, &c. John
Ferrie was in Charleston in the years 1782 and 1783, and sub-
sequently, and is supposed to have been a partner of John Banks,
a citizen of Virginia, contractor for the Southern Army. If the
heirs or representatives of John Ferrie are within the United
States, and will make their claim to the plantation of Nelville, or
to the surplus, after payment of the incumbrances that may be
set up and established in this suit, they may come in at any time

HE Bill of Complaint in this cause in substance charges
that the complainant, Stull, as trustee, under a decree of
this Court, in a cause of the Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank of
Georgetown, the other complainant, against the representatives
of Abraham Wingerd, deceased, on or about the 30th day of
March, 1822, sold to the defendant a certain described mes-
suage and premises, part of lot No. 46, of Beall's Addition to
Georgetown, for $2,115, a conveyance to be made on the sale
being ratified and the purchase-money fully paid; that Davis
paid $705 ofthe principal, and judgments were recovered against
him for the remainder, with interest and costs, which remains
unpaid, excepting the sum of $455, applicable to interest, re-
ceived at different times, and in part from the rents of the pre-
,mises, which Davis has permitted Stull to collect; the sale has
been ratified, and said bank, as a preferred creditor of Abra-
ham Wingerd, will be entitled to the proceeds of sale, when
collected ; the sum of $200 of the above credit was paid July
26, 1828, and was borrowed for thire purpose from said bank,
and yet remains unpaid, with interest from November 29, 1828,
and, at the time of borrowing, Davis assigned his interest in
said premises to said ,tull, to secure the repayment. The
complainants are remediless at law, and the objects of their bill
are, to have a short day limited for said Davis to pay the
amounts of said debts, with interests and costs thereon, and the
costs of this suit, and, in default thereof, to have said premises
sold to satisfy the same and general relief.
And, forasmuch as it appears that said Davis resides out of
the District of Columbia, it is by the Court, this first day of
May, 1839, ordered that he be in Court on or before the first
Monday in October next, and then and there appear to and an-
swer said bill, otherwise the same may be taken for confessed
as against him: Providedthatacopy of this order be published
in the National Intelligencer once a week for three successive
weeks, commencing at least four months previous thereto.
