.The ordinance of baptism, connected
with the attendant ceremonies, is a scene
'both pleasingly instructive, and unusually
'dolemn. But whlnad attended by a large
4tid almost innume'able concourse of gaz-
ing and attentive spedttors, the scene is
heightened to impressive admiration and
reverential sublimity. The mind is intu-
itively 'led to observe the resemblance
which it appears to afford to the awful 'day
of" dread decision," the infinitely sublime
ceremonies of the day of judgment, and is
involuntarily -prompted to -assent to the
truth and import of these ceremonies,
as well as the realities of judgment and
eternity. The atheist scruples, fluctu-
ates and wonders : the -deist is stag-
gered and quite -believes,: the libertine
prevaricates, assents and n -impressed :
the moralist acknowledges, desires and is
"half a convert to the right." The ad-
vantages, or good, resulting from the ad-
ministration of this ordinance, are little
known, and it is presumed, less appreciat-
ed. Many date religious impressions,
conviction and joyous emotions, from this
circumstance ; and will, in a retrospective
view, derive the most pleasing sensations
from it. Its divine sanction and authority,
elicits the approbation of almost every one;
its solemnities engage the attention and
consideration ; its importance, together
with its much more importantrequisitions,
induce desire and research.
These remarks were suggested by ob-
serving the crowds which surround our
shore, on the Afrquent administration of
the solemn ordinanceof baptism, and the
number of willing converts who come for-
ward.with alacrity, to participate in its
benefits; and th9se onrncted with it, and
the apparent concurrence and attention of
almost every individual, with the pleasing
consideration of the present copious effu.
sion of divine grace, demand the niost pro'
found gratitude.' T.

An humble confession of sins brings
shame to ourselves, but glory to GOD.
You cannot repent too soon. There is
no day like to-day. Yesterday is gone, to-
morrow is GOD's, not our own. And think
how sad it will be to have your evidences

have your oil to buy, when you should
have it to burn !

Fro* tAe Yearly Meeting-, held in London,
by adjournments, from the 19th of the
jfth month, to the 28th of the same, in-
To the Quarterly and Monthly Meetings of Friends
in Great-Britain, Ireland and elsewhere.
DEAR FRIENDS-We have renewed cause
of thankfulness to the Father of mercies
and GOD of all comfort," for having per-
mitted us to be again sensible that we are
under his protecting care. His love and
his ancient goodness have not been vith-
held from us in this our annual asseml y;
and under a fresh persuasion that He is
still graciously willing to do us good, we
invite all our dear friends to offO their
hearts to his disposal. In the wilderness
of this life, dangers assail us on everyband:
but if we look with entire reliato unto
CRBIST, the great -Head of the Chdrch, he
will lead us safely along; He wil protect
us from being entangled by the briars and
thorns; He will shield us from the sun, and
from thestorm; He will permit us to know
his voice, and to distinguish it from the
voice of- the stranger; and humbly to be-
lieve that we areo that one fold," of-
which he is the everlasting Shepherd-
that he will give unto us eternal kfe, and
that .none shall pluck us out of his hand.
How inviting arc these truths 1 how ani-
mating are these assurances!
But tbis attainment is to be ours, only
as we look in faith unto Him who declar-
ed, "if any man will come after me, let
him deny himself, and take up his cross
daily, and follow me." To deny ourselves,
and take up the cross, are duties which-we
desire earnestly to press upon all. If we
seek for .divine aid that this 'may become
the daily engagement of our lives, we shall
be induced to make a narrow scrutiny into
our thoughts, and into the motives which
influence our conduct. Frequent self-es-
aninatipn will convince us that we are
frail, and unworthy of the Lord's mercies.
A conviction of our own weakniss and
transgressions will make us fearful lfspeak-
ing ofthe errors of others; and tend to re-
strain us from tale-bearing and detraction.
At the same time, divine love operating on
our hearts, and begetting there the love
of our neighbour, will constrain us to offer
a word of counsel, in a way most calculat-
ed to produce the desired effect on such
as we deem deficient in moral or religious
Precious and verl0desirable is a humble,
contrite, teachable'state of mind, in which
th', earnest p..'ye, .s ralsaJ, that Wfe may-
live in the love and fear of our great Crea-
tor, and in all things walk acceptably be-
fore Him. Ohb that all may be kept in
the low valley of humility, where the dew
remains long; where they will know the
LoRD to be as a hiding place from the
wind, and a covert from the tempest."
Here preservation is witnessed within the
holy inclosure: here we are guarded
against the snares which beset those who
would make haste to be rich. How safe,
how necessary it is, for the humble Chris-
tian to set out well.; to watch against the
first temptation to covet great things!
Sweet is the condition of the grateful mind :
sweet is a state of contentment and of daily
dependence on the LORD.
The amount of the sufferings of our
friends in Great-Britain and Ireland, as re-
ported to this meeting, is upwards of fif-
teen thousand six hundred pounds. A-
very small proportion of these has been in-
curred for military purposes, whilst the
remainder has arisen from the support of
our Christian testimony against the pay-
ment of tithes, and other demands of an
We have received an epistle from our
dear friends in Ireland, and one from each
of the Yearly Meetings in America. It is
satisfactory to find that in several' parts of
that continent, friends are alive to the rights
and interests of the natives of Africa and
their descendants resident among them;
and are endeavouring, by the establish-
ment of schools, to promote the education
of their Dospring. Their attempts also, to
'introduce the benefits of civilized life
- among the native inhabitants' of the wilder-
ness, continue to be steady and persever.
ing; and to be marked in some parts by a
cheering degree of success. We are also
glad to learn the favourable result of an
application to the government of the Uni-
ted States, to secure to some of these na-
tives a title to their lands, previously to an.
intended subdivision of this property, in
order to its being transmitted by legal in-
The continuance of the blessingofpeace
to this nation has warmed our hearts with
gratitude. Our refusal to bear arms is not
only a testimony against the violence and
cruelty of war, but against a confidence in
what is emphatically termed in Scripture,
the "arm of flesh:" it is a testimony to
the meekness and gentleness if C RxsT,
and a resignation to suffer, in reliance on
the power, the goodness, the protection,
and theprovidence of the Almighty. Let
us, even now, seek to have our trust so1
firmly fixed on this unfailing source of
help, that if our faith should be ever again
put to the test, we may have ground to
look with humble confidence to Him in'
whom we have believed.

Dear father, this is a time of shame and
sorrow with me, but may GOD so help
me to repent and be converted, that all
my sins may be forgiven me, and blotted
out from his holy books. I read the Bible
the greater part of my time; I have
several other books and tracts, but the Bi-
ble is now worth 'to me all that you used
to say it was worth. I. learn there that
Gon is gracious, long sutfieing and merci-
ful, and forgiving sin to the. penitent, and
takes delight in a broken spirit; for he
says in the Scripture, a broken and con-.
trite heart he will not despise ;" he is able
to forgive the worst of sinners, and we
read, though your sins be as scarlet, they
shall be as white as snow ; though they
be as crimson, he can make them white as
wool;" how often, my ,dAe father, you
have told me of these things, and yet
worse than a child, or brute J have raist-
"And as the morning steals upon the night,
Melting the darkness, so their rising senses
Begin to chase the ignorant fumes that mantle
Their clearest reason."
The revolution marches with the maj-
esty of true feeling, natural order, and
deep forecast. We are not surprised at
the existence of plots in Madrid to ob-
struct its course; they will, we trust and
believe, in proving abortive, only give
fresh occasion to admire the moderation
and dignity of its spirit. The massacre
of the citizens at Cadiz by the garrison, is
an atrocious act; and if a sanguinary re-
taliation has not followed, we have a new
and signal proof of the excellent temper
ofthe people. There would seem to be a
rapid purgation of the national councils.
Those whom we suppose to be selected
from among the constitutionalists as the
heads of the new system of administration,
are able and enlightened men. One of
them, Arguelles, has few superiors any
where in enlargement of mind, and force
of resolution; and could not be surpassed
in benignity of character, and purity of pa-

prevail about authorizing the President to

A CHRISTIAN LAND.
We observe, printed on the editorial
page of a late National Intelligencer, an
advertisement for the sale at auction of ai
negro girl of seventeen years of age, takew
inT executionfor taxes due by her masteO
to the-Corporationof Washington. Here
is the case of an inoffending fellow ereat-
ure, torn from a family in which she may
-have the tenderest ties of consanguinity;
with which all her-,humble feelings and'
comforts may be bound up-to be comm:it-
ted, body and soul, to the highest bidder,
whether he be negro-trader or riceplanter;
of Georgia or the Arkansaw; of Mexicq
or Cayenne. This is,' indeed, taking in
execution ; a worse execution than death
itself. And yet the National Intelligencer,
that moaned, and waxed wroth, and spoke
daggers, over the cremation of Mr. Fuller-
ton's effigy, had not a sigh or a murder
to bestow upon the dire fate of a female of
the human family, thus sacrificed at a ten-
der age, to gratify 'a pecuniary demand of
the worshipful Corporation of the Metrop-
olis; any more than it could even gently
reprove the burning of the negro in South-
Carolina. But why, would exclaim
some erudite correspondent of the Rich-
mond Enquirer, why startle and whimper
on this score? Did not the free and enli ,h-
tened and Christian nations, the Greeks ,nd
Romans, indulge in the same practices ?

friend Burke and his son had landed in
Dublin : we were vain enough to flatter
ourselves with the hope 'of seeing 'him at
Ballytore, and my kind parents were not
willing I shoula'lose a gratification, which
I would prize so highly. On the 23d, as
Parker and I were sitting in the parlour, a
rap was at the door ; I opened its and was
accosted by a gentleman, "Will you re-
ceive two wanderers?" I said, "Yes we
will,"-and just then caught the fine coun-
tenance of my honoured friend, who ac-
companied by hit son, had as it were stol-
en upon us-having alighted out of the
carriage before they came to the house.
I think I never experienced such sudden
and lively emotions of natural joy. I
should have much wished for thee, exclu-
sive of our own interests, to have been here
at that time. I am certain thou wouldst
have been delighted with the beautiful
scene of affectionate remembrance which
our friend's behaviour displayed. Hel
traversed the whole village, with astonish-
ing memory; marked the situation of ev-
ery house he had known, if the house stood
no more-missed the fallen trees as old
acquaintance-called to see the families
of those he knew, and saluted them with a
cordial affability. The village was in a
ferment-the people devoured him with
their eyes-the tradesfolk left their work
to gaze on him, and the school boys -de-
clared he was the finest fellow they ever
saw. There is an old steward now with
my brother, who served my father and
grandfather, and who knew Edmund
Burke when at school; the great man paid
particular and kind attention to old Wil-
liam ; introduced his son to him, and held
a candle to his own face, to let the aged
man see him with more satisfaction. Our
honourable, I may say right honourable
friend, seemed greatly to, enjoy our family
harmony, and the comfortable retreat af-
forded to the age of his friends. It was'
pleasant to him, I believe, to breathe once
more in Ballytore, escaping from the so-
licitationg of the first people in the king-
dom to gratify us, and I fully believe,
himself also-for there is41 noble simplic-
ity about him which loves the scenes and
sentiment of nature. Next day they left

ten years younger by the sight of her

' The excitement among the people was soon
known at the Palace, aud greatly alarmed the
King. His Ctua ii were immediately convened;,
and nR-ws of the r"iing spirit of the Kingdom was
received every moment from various provinces.
On the 4th the King issued an Expose of the in-
formation he had received; in which he declared
his readiness to do all in his power to tranquilize
the public mind; and called upon the Councils,
Universities and corporations to advise him on the
state of affairs.
On the same day a decisive event occurred.--
The Count DE L ABISBAL, after ki sing the King's
band, left Madrid with a royal regiment of troops,
under pretence of escorting a convoy of stores to
Andalusia ; but when he had arrived at Ocana [10
leagues from Madrid] he proclaimed the Constitu-
tion, and was joined in the measure by the regi-
ment of cavalry there. The King's guards had
previously express#4l similar sentiments.
On the 5ti the Royal Council advised the King
to convene the Cortes; and the next day the King's
Minister, M ATAIMLORIDA, called on the Supreme
Councilof Castile to submit to the King their
doubts on the subject.
These equivocal proceedings roused the Mad.
ridese to action.-They immediately tore down
the placards, demanded the immediate recognition
of the Constitution, and assembled to the number
of 10,000 in. front of the Palace, calling loudly to
the King to appear on the balcony. The King
immediately came forward, accompanied by his
*Queen, his two Bi otn, r., and tLu0- lh .I ; all wav-
ing white handkerchiefF. One of the assemblage,
(a Brigadier-General) addressed thle King from
the street in a manly and loud voice, nearly in
these words:-FEnDrN AND KEIN TheSpanish
people have reconquered their liberties. They de-
mand the immediate rconocation of the Cortes, and

people. The Spokesman of the Assemblage then
demanded, that all the advocates of despotism
should be removed from the King's Councils. Ad-

quisition should be abolished; the Prisons opened,
and the Liberty of the Press be restored All
these FERDINAND promised. But the people
called for somei earnest of his sincerity ; and de-
manded that the Adminislration of Madrid should
be immediately changed. The King instantly na-,
med a Nobleman as their new M ayor.--" No, No "
was the response. We have already had enough
ofthat blood." The King then named another,
which was accepted : and a deputation named on
the spot to proceed with the Candidate to the City
Hall, where he was .worn into office, and pro.
claimed by acclamation.
On the 7th, the King issued his royal decree,
announcing his determination not to wait for the
opinions of his Counsellors, but to give orders for
the immediate assembly of the Corite, and that be
was ready to swear to support the Constitution
promulgated by the General and Extraordinary
Cortes of 18.12.

On our arrival we found the Buenos
Ayreans in great consternation, and mo-
mently expecting an attack from General
Carrera, at-the heard of-the MoWrta rivers,
with whom they are at war. This civil
contest has arisen from a difference in po-
litical views. The army of Carrera wish
for a confederated government-the other,
for a consolidated one. The forces of
Carrera are estimated at about ten thou-
sand men, principally inhabitants of the
borders of Chili; the whole army of Bue-
nos Ayres does not exceed two thousand ;
consequently, the former must soon be at
the head of affairs. A battle was fought
on the 1st instant, a few leagues from this
place, in which Carrera gained the advan-
tage. All the troops in this city were in-
mediately ordered out against the Moun-
taineers, but they positively refused to
fight against their brother, as they called
them. A negotiation was then set on foot,
and, it is understood, an accommodation
has taken place, but on what grounds re-
mains a profound secret. Pucyrredon,
the late Supreme Director, has been oblig-
edto fly for his life. It is supposed he has

LATE FREN'CH PAPERS. *
A very attentive and obliging friend has fa.
voured us .with full files of Paris papers, marine
lists, and prices current, to the 1st April.
The papers are much occupied .with the re-
ported hot debates in the French Parliament on
the measures recommended by the King for the
support of order and decency, and for curbing
sedition and licentiousness. All the talents of
the Liberals was in requisition against these
measures; and, on the other hand, the bills pro-
posed were powerfully supported by the King's
Ministers, and the orators of the majority. The
speech of the Baron Pasquier, Minister of For-
eign Afflirs, on presenting the bills for suspend-
ing the Habeas Corpus, and for restricting the
press, was a fine sample of Parliamentary elo.
quence, and occupied a whole sheet supplement
of the Journal de Paris of March 30.
The health of the King of France was precari-
ous ; and deemed of vita4 importance to the in-
ternal quiet of the kingdom. Bulletins of it had

MONDAY MORNING, May 15.
ti TIE 4-E SSA GE,
So frequently anticipated, and about
which so .much has been. conjectured, as
to its exposition of our relations with
Spain, has at length been communicated
to Congress, and we have the satisfaction,
this morning, to lay it before pur readers.
FROM TIlE xATLONAL INTELLIGEitNCEI OF
To tha Senate and. house of Representatives of the
I communicate to Congress a correspondence
which has taken place between the Secretary of
State. and the Envoy Extraordinary and Minister
Plenipotentianrv of his Catholic Majesty, since the
message of the'27th March last, respecting the
treaty which was concluded between the United
States and Spain, on the 22d February, 1819.
After the failure of his Catholic Majesty for so
long a time to ratify the treaty, it was expected
that this Minister would have brought with him
the ratification, or that he would have been au-
thorized to give an order for the delivery of the
territory ceded byit, to the United States. It ap-
pears, however, that the treaty is still unratified,
and that the Minister has no authority to surren-
der the territory. The object of his mission has
been, to make complaints, and to demand expla-
nations, respecting an imputed systemnof hostilty,
onthe part of citizens of the United'Sates, against
the subjects and dominions of Spain, and an un-
friendly policy in their government, and to
obtain new stipulations, against these alleged in.
juries, as the condition on which-the treaty
should be ratified.-
Unexpected as such complaints and such a de-
mand, were under existing circumstances, it was
thought proper, without compromitting the gov-
ernment as to -the course to be pursued, to meet
them promptly, and to give the explanations that
were desired, on every subject, w l he ut .
candour. The result has provd, asMiE
kanow'befare;'tnZH. iaie of a
systematic hostility, being adopted and ursued
by citizens of the United States, against the do-
minions and subjects of Spain, is utterly destitute
of foundation, and that their government, in all
its branches, has maintained, with the utmost rig-
our, that neutrality, In the civil war between
Spain and her colonies, which they were the first
to declare. No force has been collected, ior in-
cursions made, from within the United States,
against the dominions of Spain; nor have any na-
val equipments-been permitted, in favour of ei-
'ther party, againstthe other. Their citizens have
been warned of the obligations incident to the
neutral condition of their country.; the public
officers have been instructed to see that the laws
were fully executed; and severe examples have
been made of some who violated them.
In regard to the stipulation proposed, as the
condition of the ratification of the treaty, that the
United States shell abandon thile right to recog-
nize the RevolutioirMy colonies in South America,
or to form other relations with them, when in
their judgment it may be just and expedient so
to do, it is manifestly so repugnant to the honour,
and even to'the independence, of the United
States, that it has been impossible to discuss it.
In making thisproposal, it is perceived that his
Catholic Majesty has entirely misconceived the
principles -o~ which this government has acted,
min being a party to a negotiation so long pro-
tracted, t r claims so well rounded and reasonable
as he likewise has the sacrifices which the United
States have made, comparatively, with Spain, in
the treaty to which it is proposed to annex so
extraordinary and improper a condition.
Had the Minister of Spain offered an unquali-
fied pledge that the treaty should be .ratfied.by
Shis sovereign, on being ifiade acquainted with the
explanations which had been given by is gov-
ernment, there would have been a strong motive
for accepting' anl submitting it to the Sehate, for
their advice and consent, rather than to resort to
other measures for redress, however justifiable
and proper. -But hK gives no such pledge. On
the contrary, he deelaes explicitly *that lrefa-
juldging and a(t!tifor'itself hereafter, according
to circumstances, m regard to the Spanish colo-
- ies-a right common to all nations-has render-
ed itimDpsAble fobr 'n,under his instructions,
Lt, tnle. such engagement. He thinks that his
sovereign will be induced, by his communications,
to ratify the treaty;, buf stil he leaves him free
either to adopt that measure, or to decline it. He
admits that the other objections 'are essentially re-
moved, and will not, in themselves, prevent the
ratification, ptwvidedtthe difficulty on the third
point is surmounted., The result, therefore, is,
that the treaty is declared to have no obligation
whatet er; that itsra'tification is made to depend,
-sot on the consideratmins which led to its adop-
Stioan; and theconditions ahich it contains, but on
a new article unimeonnected with it, respecting
which a new negotiation must be opened, of in-
definite duration, and doubtful issue.-
Under tljs view of the subject, the course to
be pursued would appear to be direct and obvi-
ous, if the affairs of Spain had remained in the
state in which they were when this Minister sail-
ed. But it is known, that an important ch-ange
has since taken place in the government of that
country, which cannot fail to be sensibly felt, in
its intercourse with other nations. The Minister
of Spain .has essentially declared his inability to
act, in consequence of that change. With him,
however, under his present powers, nothing
could be done. The attitude of the United States
must now be assumed, on full consideration of
what's due-to their-rights,-their interest, and
honour, without regard tothe powers pfincidents
of the late'moisLon, We may, t plsgsre, occu.
py the territory, which was intended and provid-
ed by the late treaty as aIm indlemnity for losses
so long .nce sustained by our citizens, but still
.nothing could be settled definitely, without a
treaty between the two nations. Is this the time
to make the pressure ? If the United States were
governed by views of ambition and aggrandize-
ment, many strong reasons might be given in its
favour. But they have no objects of that kind to
accomplish; none which are not founded in jus-
tice, and whicit can be injured by forbearance.
Great hope is entertained that the change will
promote the happiness of the Spanish nation.-
The good order, moderation, and humanity, which
have characterized the movement, are the best
guaranteesofitssuccess. The United States would
not be justified in their own estimation, should
they take any step to disturb its harmony. When
thd'Spanish government is completely organized
on the principles of this change, asit is expected
it soon will be, there is just ground to presume
that our differences with Spahr will be speedily
and satisfactorily, settled. With these remarks,
I submit it to the wisdom of Congress, whether
it will not still be advisable to postpone any de-
cision on this subject until the next session.

The brook, as it flows, gives no sound,
The zephyr has died on the lea.
No moon, with her radiance bright,
Rides sublimely alone in the sky .
She dims not the gems of the night,
That in multitudes sparkle on high.

How pensive, how holy such hour!
E'en the far distant orbs, as they roll,
Swell Devotion's and Solittide's power.

Which hurry the spirit away, -
Which leave one no moment to spare.

For Reflection and Solitude leave
But I must away.to the town,
