FOR 'TI-IE COUNTRV--Pubii.di (c 'i'nesidays
and Fridajv) by GIAMES G. WATTS & CO. at
the N. N. co'rni of Secotid and ViWalnut street, at
Four Dollars per antiuum, payable in advance.

La Fta'ettc.--We mentioned a few weeks
since, the intention of Mr. Perkins, an en-
graver of this city, to publish an elegant
-piece from his graver commemorative of the
visit of our Nation's Guest. Mr. Perkins
has completed his undertaking, and pre-
sented, for the patronage of our citizens,
*one of the most splendid pieces of writing
engraving that we have ever seen. Mr.
P. has long been acknowledged at the head
of hisdepartment of the art of a writing en-
graver. The richness of design and the in-
imitable excellence of the execution re-
commends this work in an especial manner
to the attention of Connoisseurs. Inde-
pendently'of the great event which the
print is intended to commemorate, an event
which seems to give consequence to almost
every undertaking which has only a remote
relation to it, the beautiful work before
us, is highly gratifying to every American,
as a specimen of the arts in our country;-
we have examined the work of some of
the most celebrated writing engravers of
Europe-Ashby, Hallowell and Kirkwood,
4,c. but have seen none of their productions
which, could compare with Mr. Perkins'
print-it is indeed a monument which ge-
nius and taste has erected to the comme
imora.tion of a most happy event. Itis pro-
per to state that this work has been design-
ed, and the writing executed, entirely by
Mr. Perkins.
Interest.--We noticed last fall,.that some
efforts were making in several counties in
this state, to petition the Legislature for
a reduction in the rate of legal interest;
nothing has yet been effected upon that
subject in Pennsylvania; but we perceive
by the New York papers, that the Senate
-quire into the expediency of making a re-
duction in interest there which is, we be-
.lieve, fixed by law at 7 per cent.
The-report of this committee is a very
lucid paper, and appears to refer to the
situation of the different classes of citizens
to be effected by the law, with an inti-
mate knowledge of their wants, and their
me tis of supplying them.
Ti1e committee, as is usual in all investi-
gations of'the kind, deemed it right to ac-
ka- hate .'tb-' is-ght--of Legislaturems-tn
-. maki such laws as the state of trade and the
wanis ofthe community might suggest,upon
the subject of interest: this right they think
established by precedents, in the customs
of all civilized nations, the ancient Jews
excepted, who did not take usance of their
brethren; whether the customs of nations
have, or .have not, been favorable to such
regulations, it appears as if certain circum-
stances require the occasional interference
of Legislative aid, in fixing the rate of
usancej,-,.nd although people may talk of
money being only merchandize, yet the ex-
petience 'of almost every people warrants
the belief t hat though to lend money at the
best price pt)ssible may be a right which all
possess, yet the danger arising to the com-
imunity, in times of trade, appears to render
i.t one of those small rights which we may
safely give up, for the sake of securing
others more important.
The advantages to be derived from a re-
duction of interest, according to the New
York committee, are to be chiefly confined
to the country, as the state of business and
the habits oi merchants, will regulate the
ice of money in the city according to its
real value.
While the rate of usance continues at 7
per cent. the monied maen of the country
will he satisfied to loan their money to those
whose imperious wants demand immediate
succour, in the consciousness that the very
rate which is imposed upon thie means of
temporary aid,, will involve the borrower
in still greater difficulties, and finally throw
the possession which he had endeavoured


Sir. Fahnesituck offers the money for its re-
covery, and the detection of the thief. "

A gentleman of this city has nearly com-
pleted a Revolutionary Tale, to be enti-
tled, "Valley Forge." The work will be,
predicated upon the interesting events
connected with the times to which its name
carries us back. It commences with the
battle of Brandywine, and terminates with
the evacuation of Philadelphia by the Bri-
tish forces.
The work will be interesting not only
from "men and scenes," but from a picture
of the manners of our city, as it was .at the
period referred to, and we venture to pro-
mise our lovers of novels and novelty, an
agreeable treat in this book.
The author is a young gentleman of our
state, ofa fine genius, and classical educa-
tion, one who will bring to his task some
of the best qualifications of a novelist, and
seizing as he has done upon events so in-
teresting to all, he can scarcely fail of ad-
ding to the literary fame four country.-
The work will, as we learn, make its ap-
pearance in two volumes, very early in the
summer.

In settling the differences between New
York and New Jersey, the Senate of the
former state has passed a bill giving the
latter one half of the North River. This
bill is scolded at very much by Mr. Noah,
who declares trat if it should become a
law it would be fatal to the commerce of the
city."

Water.-The editor 'of the New York
Statesman mentions a project for conduct-
ing the waters of the Passaic, into the city
of New York. To effect this, aqueducts
must be laid across the Hudson, in such a
manner that anchors in dragging would
not injure them, and a tunnel must be dug
under the bed of the River. Tunnelling
the Thames appears to be a precedent to
sanction the latter project, and people, by
inquiring begin to think that such a mode
of conveying water and carriages is not so
great a bore as it was once represented.

It is stated that the Postmaster General
has contracted with the owners of the
Steam-boat Chief Justice Marshall to carry
the mail between New York and Troy.

Capt. Nye, of the schr. Tandem, just ar-

Alvarado, reports, that an Embargo was
laid, as he was on the eve of sailing; and
that several American vessels were taking
in troops, on an expedition against Cam-
peachy.-Balt. Chron.

A most beautiful specimen of Coal, was
exhibited on Wednesday at the Exchange
by P. A. Karthaus, Esq. It was found on
his estate in Pennsylvania, ots the Western
Branch of thje Susquehanna, on the surface
of the ground. The supply is said to be
inexhaustible, and of a quality equal to the
Richmond Coal.-ib.

PHILADEILPIHIA .
TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 19, 1825.

We are particularly struck with the
ground of opposition, which has been assu-
med by certain editors, to the appointment
of the Hon. Rru3s KING, as Minister to
England.
Because Mr. King was in the times of
party distinctions, a federalist, Mr. Binns
and Mr. Noah affect to believe that he pos-
sesses no claim upon public respect, or ex-
*ecutive favor-We shall, we are conscious,
do but little towards increasing the popu-
larity of this appointment, among certain
politicians, by advocating the nomination
of AiMr. King upon the score of his former
adherence to the federal party. We are
-aware that the number of offices to be filled
-by executive favor, is so limited, that any
,encroachment upon what is deemed pre-
scriptive privileges, will be viewed, by
!14tra politicians, as an unpardonable of-
fence. We view the appointment of Mi.
King by President Adams, as no compli-
ment made, or intended, to the federalpar-
-ty. If any particular views, aside from ge
neral policy, were entertained, we presume
that a proper, or particular, reference was
had to the great and important State of New
York, and this opinion receives confirma-
tion from the fact, that a leading democrat,
a great man, -of that state, received the
first offer of the appointment.
In the warmth of an election'canvass, we
'may overlook the expressions of party men,
and impute the imprudence of their lan-
guage to an over excited zeal; but no such
motives at present can influence the editors
referred to; and they show by their acqui-
escence in the former appointments offhe
President, and their hostility to Mr. King's
nomination, that no motive of public good
influences their opposition. The very ap-
pointment which Mr. King now holds was
made by Washington, continued by Mr.
.Adams, and acquiiesced in by Mr. Jefferson,
without any impeachment of his motives,
or any reprehension of his conduct, which
vas not founded upon party animosity.
We did not mean to institute any compa-
,tiln which could be considered invidious,
.but really, when we think that Mr. Binns
;and Major Noah were among the thickand
thin advocates of Mr. Gallatin for Vice
President of the United States, we cannot
but marvel at their opposition to the ap-
TQintment f Rufus King, as a Foreign Mi-
raisit r..
-If we were >to argue with these gentle-
izen, upon their own ground: of.party consi-
>deratios,- we should certainly, have the
advantage in thefact, that upon democratic
!principles, Mr. ASams is justified in consi-
,dering his adherentesas composing his par-
ty, and Mr. Binns and Major Noah, upon
the very -prindikiles by which they profess
'to :be governed, should be silent. While
this consideration is enough to silence the
gruriling of those who are -such -sticklers
for pssrtr, it is due to the disinterested
-ness of the Exec.tive:to state, that naO such
-contracted views can be traced in his ,po-
licy--with a liberality that's a-noble cem-
uipent open his inaugural address, Mr. Ad-'
ams has -selected -his counsellors without:
any reference to the distinctions,which ob-
solete policy created, or'to whichh-more re-
-cenft -events ,gave a momentary -come-'
quence.
We are -not prepared to -make -any
.observations upon the remarks of-those-who
. impeach the motives of Mr. Adams, in-se-
lecting publicofficers without distinction
-ofparty-such'people affect to think he is
iinfluenxed-by.a desire for popularity, ra-.
.ther than a wish'forpublic good-such as-
-dertions areaonl.ypredtecated upon feelings
of.unauthorized.rancour.
Into theheart of-man we may noti.nquire
beyond the eviideuce. of his actions; and
we can only add, that while.editors are ma-
;king such a display of their-desire for the
,peep.e's good, it is but small recommenda-
tion -of their motives, that they oppose
themselves to a ,policy, which, previous to
.its adoption, they. would have loaded -as

M, ssrs. Editors-I have always looked
upon slander and deceit as the most una-
miable and degrading principles that can
be attached to the character of a rational
creature. There is something in those
traits, which have now become so preya-
lent in the human character, and which
convey the sense of so much intellectual
contraction and harsh misanthropy towards
our fellow creatures, that the very import
of the terms will be a source of regret to
every noble, generous, and reflecting
mind. It is certain, that no person, how-
ever great may be his fortune, or extensive
his learning-however noble his ancestors,
or shining his parts, can be a true gen-
tlemen or who bears in his characters
that mostsordid and disgusting principle,
slander; and when we duly consider the
duties which bind man to man-the duties
which we owe to ourselves, to our fellow"
creatures and the world, does not humanity
revolt at it, and justice forbid it? Hlow are
we pained with the idea of beholding bro-
ther trampling upon brother, and recipro-
cally slandering each other; of viewing
one using every scheme and device which
an active and infatuated imagination can
invent, to pull down the character of ano-
ther, for the purpose of establishing his
own! What can be a more striking exem-
plification of intellectual degradation than
this; or of the depravity of human nature
than such an act? It is true, there may be
many persons who become addicted to ca-
lumny more from a habit of the mind, than
from any other existing cause; but of what-
ever source it may be, the principle is ut-
terly detestible, and should meet with the
reward it. duly merits. If we would but
properly consider the end for which we
were born-the ties of friendship and es-
teem that bind mankind to-each other-and
view human nature in its true light, instead
of aspersing the character of a fellow crea-
ture, & multiplying & magnifying his com-
mon errors, we should be naturally incli-
ned to confirm his reputation and to ame-
liorate his character, and condition in life,
by good deeds; and to promote his useful-
ness. To these things we'should, therefore,
do well to.direct our attention chiefly, and
be stimulated by a senate of duty, emerging
from true benevolence.
How many are there in both sexes, who,
notwithstanding the superiority of their
extraction, and the immense number of ad-
vantages which are afforded from a large
fortune, suffer their minds to be impregna-
ted with this baleful quality, instead of
seizing those fair opportunities of which
thousands of our fellow creatures are de-
prived, to apply to the best of purposes,
and so to improve the mind, and cultivate
those amiable qualities which are indis
pen-ably necessary to the accomplishment
of the lady or gentleman. The man who
is in the practice of slandering, so degra-
ded is his nature, and so depraved his in-
.tellectual capacity, seldem views his own
character in its true light,and if he should,
by chance, happen to cast his eye on the
dark side of his character, and observe the
imperfections which are- derogatory to it,
his mind- cannot dwell long upon them,
but anxious to pass over them, and to leave
the painful. thought behind it, flies with
inconceivable rapidity to ponder over the
merits of the bright -Sfair side of his char-
acter. A slanderous person must of necessi-
ty betray malice., envy and hatred to the
world, and .consequently misery and dis-
content. He.is a grand nuisance to society,
and no gentleman, having learned his cha-
racter, will ever favor him with his compa-
ny. The mind iof a true gentleman soars
above -the malice of revenge: hypocrisy
does not belong to his nature, and deceit
has no;place in his heart. His soul is noble
generous and brave4 his benevolent and
amiable temper are depicted in his life and
conduct ;his ears are ever open to the cries
of the distressed and oppressed, and he is
always willing-to perform any acts of be-
neficence to'reinstate a dyjng or lost repu-
tation, and to.promote the public good; he
.is a friend to .humanity.; a benefactor to
the world, and a satisfaction to himself;
he is brave, without vice; courteous, with-
out deceit, and charitable without ostenta-
tion. If he hears illraportsabout his neigh-
bour, or friend, he r-ests in hopes that it is
not so; and always endeavours to inspire
content, peace and -happiness. Discord
and malice excite his compassion, but de-
ceit -and affectation fill his mind with hor-
ror. He is, in-short, what he ought to be,
a man of candour and sincerity, a useful
citizen, and a ,promoter -of the welfare of
his fellow beings. Deceit and slander are
then degrading in themselves, and will ever
render the possessor miserable and wretch-
ed- but.candour and benevolence, will be
productive of honour .and .renown, which
will survive amidst .the waste-of .ages and
the.ravages of time. ALONZO.

TALLAHASSEE-IN FLORIDA.

From the National Intelligencer.
We received, yesterday, the first number
ofa new paper, printed in Florida, at Tal-
lahassee, the spot fixed upon and recently
occupied as the Seat of Governmetnt, by
the title of the ".Florida intelligence. "-
The following account of this "young
capital" will be interesting to most of onr
readers, some of whom have scarcely heard
the name of it;
Taliahasec.-Tl'his young capital of Flor-
ida is already attracting the attention of
capitalists. Many buildings are electing,
and others are in a state of preparation, e-
vern before the sale of the lots, which w,ll t
take place on the fourth day of April next.
It issituated on abe.utiful and comiandiig
eminence, about iS miles north of St.
T'Marks, in the bosom ofa fertile and pic-
turesque country. The south side of the
town is watered by innumerable springs
of pure water, and a clear and pleasant
stream passes by the east and south sides,
at the distance of a few yards, and after
passing the town, as if sensible the point
of its usefulness was past, falls over the
rock which beds the stream, forming a
pleasant cascade, and passes offby a sub-
terraneous passage.
The country around Tallahassee, and ex-
tending from the Suwannee to near theI
Apalachicola river, has deservedly attract-
ed the attention of travellers, and those
who have visited it with a view of a per-
Inanent settlement. The fertile lands be-
tween the above mentioned rivers extend
fIom east to west from eighty to one hun-
dred miles, and from north to south about
fifteen miles. This tract of country, much
of which is adapted to the culture of sugar,
is finely watered by the tributary streams
of the Suwannee, the St. Marks, Wakulla,
Okelockony, Little river, and several
other smaller rivers and streams, and is
beautifully studded with lakes and ponds
of the purest water. The land is rolling,
with here and there an eminence, that
rises considerably above the surrounding
country, which will afford delightful seats
for the opulent or men of leisure.
This country, notwithstanding its singu-
lar beauty and fertility, becomes more in-
teresting from the indubitable evidence of
its having been once densely populated by
a civilized race pf men. Almost every
eminence is capped with ancient fortifica-
tions, which appear regular, and some of
them substantially formed. At Fort St.
Lewis, about two miles west of Tallahassee,
have been found remnants of iron cannon,
spikes, hinges, locks, &c. -which are evi-
dently of Spanish manufacture, and which
have not been much injured by the rust.
Within the principal fort, for the out- '
works seem to have been numerous and ex-
tensive, are the ruins of two brick edifices; '
one was about sixty feet by forty, the other
about thirty by twenty. These are in
total ruins, and nothing but a mound ap-
pears where the walls stood, composed
wholly of broken bricks, which had been
composed of a coarse sandy clay, and
burned is the modern fashion. Yet on the
very wall, of these buildings, are oaks,
eighteen inches in diameter. On the same
hill, and in fact within the outworks of
this fort, are to be seen grape arbors in
parallel lines, which still maintain their
pristine regularity.
Bricks seem to have been in general use,
-f6r they have -been discovered in several
places .by digging a little below the surface
of the earth. Within the town of Talla-
hassee some were dug up, having a sub-
stanceadhering to them resembling lime
morter. But on the hill, about a -half a
mile south-east of the Capitol, are to be
been the greatest proof of a dense popula-
tion. On this hill are to be seen streets or
roads, running nearly at right angles, at
such distances as demonstrate the former
existence of a pretty large town. The
shade trees of the former inhabitants still
remain, and are generally of live oak, and
near which may be discovered grape arbors
of more or less regularity. In several in-
stances we discovered a species of the.
plumb tree.
There has been much speculation and in-
quiry concerning the former inhabitants of
this country, who they were and at what
time they flourished. No records are within
ouir reach,and the Spanish hihabitants at thq
.extremes,of the Territory had no knowl-
edge ofthis country, much less of the peo-
ple, who once lived here, but have long
since disappeared. Some, however, say
that records of the fact do exist at Havan-
na, and that measures have been taken to ,
obtain them-that Leon was the adventur-
er, who led a colony hither, but the pre-
cious metals of South America and Mexico
so occupied the attention of the Spanish
Government, that this infant colony was
suffered to fall a prey to the Indians.
The traditionary accounts of the Indians
are very plausible, and are corroborated by
many existing and circumstantial facts.
They claimed this country at their late
treaty at St. Augustine as belonging to
them by right of conquest,achieved by their to
ancestors. They represent, that it was once e
densely populated by a race of white men, a
who settled in this country, and incorpora- I
ted themselves with the Yamassee Indians. n
-That the Yamassees adopted their habits t
and became Christians, but ceased to be (
fighting men. That this people had fine v
houses, carriages, herds of cattle, &c. and
Made wide roads, and bridges over rivers
and streams of water. That they also had t
many forts and big guns. At this time the
Creek Indians made frequent attacks upon v
them, but were generally unsuccessful, as b
they then fought with bows and spears on-
ly, for they had not yet learned the use of s
the rifle. At length, after losing many 5
warriors, they associated with them- t
selves all the tribes between Georgia and w
the Mississippi, with many others far in
the North, and came down unexpectedly t
into this country. The white inhabitants I
generally fled to the forts, while most of o
the Yamassees fell into their hands. The s
men were put to death, but the women and t
children were carried into captivity. t
They carried universal desolation over a
the face of the country, as the surest me- r
thod of reducing thle fortified places. They ,
had made many attempts to storm these, t
and bound thick pieces of wood before their t
persons, as a protection from the bullets, s
but the big guns broke their defences in t


pieces, and destroyed their warriors. At
.ength famine and war destroyed all, save c
ie garrison in i'ort St. Louis. This, after t
csisi'.:g every diversity of attack, was at n
ist abandoned and destroyed, and the gar- p
prison retired to a considerable fort near 0
tic; south of the Okelockony, where was t
t.'torw..':is f.,ught a groat and decisive but-


tie, which made the Creeks masters of thai
country.
The Indians designed, when they un-
dertook to possess themselves of the coun-
try, to settle and reside here. But, as they
expressed it, they were too foolish and had
rendered it uninhabitable. They had de-
stroyed the houses, and there was no wood
to build others. They had destroyed or
consumed the domestic animals, and there
was no game to subsist them., They were,
therefore, obliged to retire from the scenes
of their own desolation, a small part west
of the Apalachicola river, and the others
to their own country.
Many of the leading statements in the
foregoing account are strongly corrobora-
ted by circumstances and facts within the
knowledge of many Americans. This is
said to be thecountryof the ancient Yatnas-
sees, and it is a fact that iet Creeks have
held a slave race, descended from the Ya-
rmassee nation, which has but recently
been incorpoporated with their tribe. It is
also a fact, that forts were very numerous,
and that Fort St. Louis bears evident marks
of having been destroyed by the, whites
from the mutilated appearance of the can-
non, which must have been broken by
sledge hammers. There is also said to be
a very considerable fortification in the
neighborhood of the Okelockony. From
the growth of tile forest trees, it must have
been about two hundred years since the
country was laid waste. Be that as it may
it is rapidly populating anew, and the pow-
er of the natives is now broken. We have
nothing to fear from them, and they can-
not, if they would, repeat the desolating
scenes which once swept over this beauti-
ful domain.-Flor. Intel.

The third section, authorises the Mayor
o borrow the sum of $23,000, at an inter-
est not exceeding five per cent, repayable
after the 1st of January 1855, for the pur-
pose of meeting the payment of the perma-
ment improvements authorized to be made
hisyear, viz. for the City Hall, 2400, for
Chestnut street wharf, $4916,. for the cul-
ert to be constructed in Vine Street,
$6000, as well as for the payment of loans
o the amount of $9,684, falling due during
he year.
The fourth section directs that any ad-
vance that may be received on the loan,
be paid over to the sinking Fund.
Mr. Lewis moved to amend the second
section by striking out the sum of $1953,-
0, and inserting $6S93,50, in the aid of
he taxes, remaining unexpended of the
eater rents after appropriating from them
$14,000 to the sinking Fund, and defraying
he whole expense of the Water Works.
n making this motion, he took occasion to
observe, that it would no doubt afford plea-
ure to every member of Councils who had
aken so warm an interest in the success of
lhe new water works at Fair Mount, that,
affairs were so flourishing. It would be
ecollected that, within a few years, the
Water Works, after absorbing all the Wa-
er Rents, required an annual appropria-
ion of from $17,000 to $20,000 for their
support, instead of yielding any thing to
he Sinking Fund.
Hle stated in addition, that from the ac-
ounts exhibited to Councils, it appeared
hat the water rents, after paying the ordi-
ury expenses of the Works, during the
-resent year, will fordd the sum of $16,-
00 applicable during the ensuing year to
he Sinking Fund, and to the defraying of
current expenses.--Phil. Gaz.

The following letter to the publisher, is from a

Teacher, (though probably not known here,) is '

Sir, I have carefully examined the New Federal
Calculator, or Scholars Assistant, by Thomas Smi-
leoyon which you politely requested my opinion,and
freely acknowledge that I think it better calculated
for the use of the United States Schools and Count-
ing Houses, than any book on the subject that I
have seen. 'J he author's arrangement of the four
primary .rules is, in my opinion, a judicious and
laudable innovation claiming the merit of improve-
ment, as it brines together the rules nearest relat-
ed in their nature and uses. His questions upon the

GRAI)ND BASHAW,
Is a beautiful Iron Grey, eight years old, 15 hands
1 I.rl 1,ih, and was imported from Tripoli, in Au-
gu, i-.'", by Mir. Jos, ih C. Morgan, who resided
tl-rc several years, andl'selected himn from the best
s e k of Arabian horses. The super-excellent qual-
ities of the Arabian horses, their docility, strength,
speed, aud bottom, for which they are so celebra-
ted, are well known to give them a decided -prefer -
cnce over any other breed of horses, either for the
turf, harness, or sa4dle.
A premium of Fifty Dollars was awarded to the
owner of Grand Bashaw, by a unmminiliu. a5 te of the
Committee of Pelnisylvania Agricultural Society, at
their first Exhibition, held at the Paoli, on account
of his superior blood, and other excellent qualities.
This will be the fourth season that GRAND BA-
SHAW has stood in America, and has not been re-
moved from his stand: He is of more perfect symme-
try than any other horse in Pennsylvania.
It is thought unnecessary to publish a certificate,
of the many excellent colts from this horse, as it will
be more satisfactory for every person to view them,
and judge for themselves; and as upwards of 300
may be seen in different parts of the State.-Good
pastures will be provided for mares, but accidents,
will he at the risk of the owners.

MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 18. 1825.

We learn that more than two thirds of
the stock in the transportation company,
for the conveyance of passengers and mer-
chandize between Philadelphia and Nor-
folk has already been subscribed. We are
satisfied of the saving in distance by this
rnlte,and refer'to the advertisement in our
columns this morning for an explanation of
other advantages to be derived from the es-
tablishment of such a line, both to the
subscribers and the public generally.

IIayti.-We publish this morning two
letters recently received from Hayti: they
serve to show.in a clear light, the state of
that country, and what emigrants may hope
to receive, who carry with them habits of
industry and reasonable ideas of life. A
considerable portion of our citizens, have
turned their attention towards Hayti, as a
place eminently calculated as a residence
for that portion of our coloured population,
whose feelings and desires were directed
towards a situation which should have less
of degredation in its appearance, than that
which public feeling impose upon them in
this country. We have shared in this so-
licitation to place the coloured people un-
der a government, and in a community
where no prejudice could exist against them
as blacks; we have not consequently been
backward in making known whatever in-
formation we gained,respecting the govern-
went of Hlayti,production and climate as f-r
as they relate to emigrants, &,Saving satis-
fied ourselves of the advantages to result
to the coloured people by emigrating to
that Island, we have also endeavoured to
promote their departure.
A statement, on Saturday, in the edito-
rial column of the Freeman's Journal, might
be so construed as to induce a belief that
the advantages of emigration are dot so
great as they have.been represented. The
letter from Mr. Granville, which we pub.
lish this morning, is to be considered as a
proper development of the state of things
in Hayti at the present moment. We have
ever opposed indiscriminate emigration; it
is a fact, the cause of which is to be traced
to the influence of public feeling, rather
thanany innate depravity pertaining to co-
-lour, that, of the criminalsarraigned at our
lesser courts, the blacks constitute a num-
ber quite disproportionate. They have less
moral responsibility, and greater tempta-
tions; it is not strange, therefore, that a-
miong the thousands who have left the
United States for Hayti, some of this class
should be found, and still less is it to be
wondered at that their unhappy propensi-
ties should be exhibited in Hayti as well
as here.
In reference to the facts stated upen the
authority of a private letter, in the 'Free-
man's Journal, that President Boyer had
become so dissatisfied with the conduct of
emigrants, that he has offered to send them
all back at the expense of the govern-
ment," we have only to say that letters
from public agents, contain no such ac-
counts.-But if any such offer had been
made by the President, it would be consi-
dered as a powerful argument in favour of
emigration.
The statement, in the letter noticed by
the editor of the Freeman's Journal is pro-
bably founded on the offer of President
Bo'yer to grant passports for returning, to
all emigrants who are desirous of leaving
the Island, and a reference to Mr. Gran-
ville's letter in the next column, will show
that no offer has been made by the Presi-
dent of Hayti to pay the returning passage
-the granting of passports only, is men-
tioned.
The information. which is almost every
'week received, from Hayti, is we think of
a decidedly favourable cast: It cannot be
supposed that the idle vagrants who lounge
our wharves in the summer, and crowd the
.Alms house in the winter, .are to be made
-good citizens of any government. The
.solid virtues of industry, sobriety and eco-
nomny, which procure so many of the eol-
oured;people, the comforts of life here, will
in Hayti, give them wealth and respectabi-
lity.

Extract of a letter from Pittsburgh,April
8:-" The Steam boat Wm. Penn, F. Er-
win, master, (Harmony society, owners,)
-arrived on the .6th instant, with a full load
and 130 passengers, from Harmony, Indi-
ana, at Eeoaomy,in Beaver county, in the
remarkablee short passage of 6 days and 3
bhora, running time. The distance is not
,less than 1070 miles-One thousand miles
.against the current.

Mr.Toibert,'the owner-of 'the ground in
'St. Helena, which was enclosed together
with the grave of Buonaparte,, has'been int
England to claim 10001. sterlingfor his pro-
perty thus-ap.propriated. It is said that the
government has put him off with 5001. to
be paid by some East India vessel arriving


at the Island.
A writer in the National Intelligencer,
while he approves of-thedesire of Mr. Tor-,
uhert to obtain as much as possible.from the
Jiritib;higovernment,offers an equal enclosure
, laud in a bautifuls.il within the district


of Columbia,as a resting place for Napoleon
and says he would pay the 10001. sterling
if he could. Without impeaching the mo-
tiyes of this gentleman, we may say that
such an appropriation of his land and mo-
necy would be profitably made.

The citizens of Alexandria,(D. C.) gave
a public dinner on Wednesday last, the
mayor of the city presiding, at which wam

Fires.-The White Lead Works of Mr
G.W.Murray, upper end of Broadway,New
York, were destroyed by fire, on Thursday
night.
On Friday morning, two dwelling hou-
ses were burnt in Greenwich village.
In Windsor, (Vt.) a two story building
occupied as a saddler shop, and book store,
was much injured by fire. The books and
stationary, the property of Mr. John Pren-
tiss, of Keene, (N. H.) were entirely de-
stroyed.

*The yearly conference of the Methodisi
Episcopal Church, commenced its session,
last Thursday in this city.
The Friends' yearly meeting commences
this day.

Accident.-We learn that a horse attach-
ed to a heavy cart, took fright, on Saturday,
and made his -way up old Fourth street--a
black man, in attempting to arrest the
course of the animal, was thrown down and
killed instantly.

Communicated for the United States Gazette.
Port au Prince, Marcht 23d. 1825.
RESPECTED Sin,-I have laboured un-
der some difficulty, in endeavouring to de-
cide whether or not I could contribute to
the cause of emigration, by addressing you
as the representative of the Philadelphia
Society, on the subject. The opinions of
men engaged in the business, are as various
as they might rationally be supposed to be,
when we consider the various motives
which prompt to action, and the various
interests known to be at stake as the plan
may succeed or fail, and as the manner in
which it may be conducted, shall meet the
views of selfishness or of benevolence of
the many who bear' the name of friends of
emigration. But on due reflection, I have
come to this conclusion, I know that I am
a hearty advocate of emigration to. Hayti,
and have been onejof the principal promo-
ters of the scheme, among our brethren of
colour. I know too, that I have had a fair
opportunity ofseeing, hearing and judging
of th- situation of the emigrants located in
the vicinity of Port au Prince,-that some
public information on the subject is expect-
ed from me. not only by the advocates, but
by the opposers of the system--that many
representations known to be false, have
been and will be made by Emigrants them-
selves, and therefore it behoves me to cast
my mite into the treasury, of information.
Circumstances have prevented my deri-
ving that general information which would
necessarily be acquired by travelling
through those sections of the country where
the emigrants are in large numbers loca-
ted, but as an enquirer and observerlI have
learned many things relative to the causes
ot discontent, which has within a short
time so much appeared among them in this
vicinity. It is true, thliat many of them are
not so advantageously settled as they may
have anticipated, and as they may desire.
This however is in a great degree their
own fault; on arriving at Port au Prince
they have acceded to o posals to, culti-
vate upon shares the lands of individuals,
in most instances without seeing the situa-
tion and frequently without making a pro-
per agreement. In thus engaging they
wrest from government,(for they are view-
ed in all points as freemen,) the power to
dispose of, and place them upon their own
lands.
But the grand cause of uneasiness among
these our brethren of affliction, and, objects
of our solicitude, is as follows: Lured by
the very liberal offers of this government,
the mass of people have come wholly un-
prepared to endure the least privation or
affliction, in many instances destitute of
the common comforts and necessaries of
life, wholly dependent upon govern-
ment for these supplies, and yet look-
ing to the sudden accumulation of
wealth and participation in Governmen-
tal affairs, without proper exertions and
without qualification. Some who have
been sick a few weeks, although now on
the recovery and evidently climate, con-
clude that the climate is not adapted to
their constitutions: others, who, because
they are neither mechanics nor agricultur-
alists have been destitute of employment,
judge that they have been deceived by
Government, cannot live, and at the very
crisis that they should begin to feel them-
selves at home and engage in business, are
about leaving the country..
If I may be allowed an opinion-I would
say, Government has been and continues
to be liberal beyond any reasonable con-
ception; in proof of which I refer you to
her many acts ofbenevolence, among which
I class her late order to grant passports to
all the discontented emigrants who may
apply, without exacting that which is most
justly her due.
From the idea of liberty, many of our
fellow unfortunates have separated all
justice, order, and restraint, which you
know are the very basis of civilized socie-
ty. Not to be allowed to dispose of things


as they think proper, nor to be indiscrimi-
nately admitted into the social circle of
the principal men of the country, even the
domicile of his Excellency, is in their es-
timation, hatefully cruel, and not a whit
better than absolute slavery.
It affords me, sir, no small degree of
pleasure, in being able to state, that amid
all the manifest discontent, I find very ma-
