We now openly tate ti to be the general and ui-

are deemed) in seeing those among the coloured inhabitants

Had the late House of Alembly been uninterruptedly
permitted to continue their business, the mot jealous and
illiberal colunld man would have been ratified ; but the
Governor could not usur the merit to himself, ad he,
therefore, mun surreptitiously trew a brand where he knew
a srong latent hea existed, and afterwards deprecated a
conduct, that he knew must be the consequence of the com-
bustion attendant upon hiseffrts. We sate that the Colony,
generally, will see its already subdued energies become a

loured, not coulesce to shake off n administration whose
every effort tends to an inversion of the Latinized Cone

Tie day last being the firt day of Trinity Term, the
General Court romt at 10 o'clock; and having been open-
ed in the usial form, te Ormnd Jury, summoned tor the
ternm under the commas law, were sealed: of that Ibly,
however, only five made their applerance, namely-Rober
Butler, John Irving, William Ilield, Neil M'Queen, and
Bllnjamin Tynes, Esquires. Upon thai, d Attorney Ge-
neral informed the Court hat he lad so bills of indictment
to submit to a Grand Jury; the Coat, however, directed
that a writ of Di riagai should issue agaid the defaulters,
returnable on Tuesday next.
The intention of this process is, we believe, to distrmi (or,
in technical language, to return issues) upon the land, Ac.
of the absent Jurymen, to such an amount a the Provost
Marshal mh deem proper in order to compel their appear-
ance. Should the Jury not appear, at the return of this
writ, it will then be in th6 power of the Court to iue an
aias Ditrigas, under which the Provot Marhal will
again have to distrain for a further amount. Similar pro-
ceadings have taken plan with respect to the Petit Jury,
of whom sin or seven only (and those chiey, if not all,
coloured persons) attended.
The Court was then adjourned until Tusday mat.
What will be the real of these proceedings, we do not
pretend to ay ; but having in a preceding pragraph mated
our opinion, as to the feeling which exists upon the part of
the white population towards the free coloured clam, we
must now remark, that nojust argument spinat the correct-
ma of that opinion can be drawn from the conduct of the
Grand and Petit Jumrs. The bare fact of many of those
f gentlemen having hnen members of the late lbome of As-
sembly, and a such, baving determined to pam an art
which would have admitted those very persons into the muse
jury box with them alvas, is sficpt to prove that they
are not so much opposed to the principles of te measure
itself, as to the means by which that measure i now at-
Stempted to be forced upon them. Had the bill which was
in progress in the late assuion of Asembly passed into a
law, all the difficulties now complained of would have been
obviated. The House of Asembly, however, cannot be
censured for this; they carried the bill as far a they con-
fsistentlycould, and it would at this day, in all probability,
i ave been the law of the land, had they not, frosn just re-
gard to their own privilege and therights of their constitu-
Sents. been obliged to waive all minor considerations and by
making a firm uand, endeavour to check that system of
minrule under which the Colony has b n suffering for the
Sat eighten months. If, therefore, the couro ofjutice is
( impeded, neither the Huse of A.wmbly nor the Jurorn

At length we have received authentic intelligence from
Poland, and, we rejoice to say, of the most cheering
kid. The Russian comander-in-chief, who, some
mntthe ae, in the plentitude of prenus ptin, pledged
himself to his mater, that by a certai day, he would
display the Raiian etr'r h" Warsaw, has arain been
foiled, his plan again deranged, and, with the bolk of his
troops,e eha been obliged to fall back, in discomnture
and dnisce, tbefr e e army of the patrioi. This is
the fourth time that this doughty conqueror, whose high
pretension have now become a laughing-stock even to his
w tick-hmded follower, has seen hi claims to immor-
taliy vanish. Of the detail of this lat advance of the
Rusains upon Waraw, uad the retreat of the Poe before
them. we have the accounts of both sides, and they dier
ht liSde fro each other. As soo as the rtt movement

generalngament. ohing could seceed the e*ahudi
with which the w r deceived. The eineas i w-
ed their aurnce of devotion to their country; and we
are told that, in an incredibly short pace of time, a new
teae-du-pont was constructed at Pra, and a second wall
of protection was thrown upby 15,000 men, which was
sufficient to shelter the whole of the patriot army. The
most influential senators and cith a weat out to join dih
camp, and every one had reconciled himself to the wot.
The retreat, in the mean time, continued, the Pole every
where carrying with them the Inhabtants of the country,
and every description of provision which could serve su
subsistence to the enemy.
Upon the 87th Skrnyneckl had reached the capital, and
xed his head quarter there; the bulk of his army wu at
Miluana, a dove miles distat. Ia their retreat they ap
pear to have haen gsmatly hlmmd by the Russian, and
at Minsk an actiu of some omaqunce took place, in
which the Russias sy the P hat a considerable a-
her of men; but this is died the accounts upon the
other aide. Arrived satDlmb-Wlld,da Ruislas fred

again advanced, and remuned it former positions at Koa-
trayn, and beyond Siennica. On the 30th the Polish army
advanced, and the vanguard wa in the morning at Kalus-
Syn. The effect of this rode movement mut be
highly favourable to the patriot ca for besides its influ-
ence upon the still wavering provinces of Russian Polnd,
it proves that the subsistence of the Rusian army a entirely
dependent upon their supplies i the rear, and these may
be intercepted by the insurgents
The only drawback to this ebilirating news is the state-
ment (of which the accuracy is no longer questionable) of
chaora marb prevailing amoo the Polish troop. It is
said, however, to be abating of is viruence and mortality.

udginal taint will remain. There is no surer sign of vul-
garity than the love of meddling.

The following is the concluding paragraph of an article
in alate number of the Journal of Heallth, on die Educa-
tion of the Appetites."
One fundamental principle we cannot, however, abstain
from mentioning at'his time; it is the education of the ap-
peLi'es,on success in which so much of the happiness of this
life depend- It must begin from the earliest infancy, long
before the dawn of reason, and even anterior to the revolu-
tion to the moral sentieneuts. The rule on which it is con-
ducted is a very simple one-applicable to all classes It
i to allow no cliild the indulgence of an appetite or propen-
sity, odter than what is required by its intuitive wants, for its
body suppmurt and health. Nothing is to be conceded by
thI whlim, or caprice of a parent to hie imaginary wants of
a ciild; for ii ntiut be coatiantly borne in nind, that every
grat ilicaltion ufany onesonse whether of tate, sight,sound,or
touch, is dhe bgiinning ofa dLsire fur its senewal; mad thu
every renewal gives the probability of the indulgence be-
coming a habit; and that babit once formed, even in child-
hood, will often remain during the whole of after life, ac-
quiringstrengtl every year, until it ats alll law, but homuan
and divine, at defiance.
Let parents, who allow children to sip a little of this
wine, or to just taste that cordial, or who yield to the cries
of the little ones for promiscuous food, or for liberty to sit
up a little later, or to torment a domestic animal, or to strike
a nurse, or to raise a hand against mamnma; ponder wellon
the consequences. If they do not, often vain are .he after
efforts of intructors-vain the monitions fom the pulpit; 1
their child is in danger of growing up, a drunkard, or a
glutton--a aelf-willed senualist, or passionate and ruvenge-
fiil !-promipt to take the life of a fellow-being, and to ma-
criice his own; and all his becausethe fond parents were
faithless to their trust-they had no firmness to do their
duty, they fired to mortify their child; and in so doing,
they exposed him in afterlife, to be mortified by the world's
scam, to wander an unloved, unpitied thing.

As Erllentl Ilss.-T- likarwitllthe Tra-kettle.-
The following anecdote evines the hardihoo bears. Fish
which forms their chief nourishment, and which they pro-
cure for themselves from the rivers, was lastyear excessive-
ly sarre. A great famine consequently existed among
thAm, and, instead of retiring to their dens, thl.v wandered
about the whole winter through, even in the streets of St.
Peter and St. Paul, in Kamshatks. One of then finding
the outer gate of a house oen, entered, and the gate acci-
dentallyclosed aflerhim. The womanof thehousehail just
placed a larce tea machine, full of Ibiling water, in the
court. The bear smelt it and burnt his none: provoked at
the pain, he vented all his fury on the kettle, folded his fore-
paws round it, pressed it with his whole strength to crush it,
and burnt himself, of course, more and more. The horri-
ble growl which rage and pain forced from him brought all
the inhabitants to the spot, and poor Bruin was soon des-
patched by shots from the windows. lie has, however,
inmom li ed his memory, and become a proverb among the
town's people; for when oe injures himself by his own
violence, they call him the hear with the tea-kettle."

Pride of India Tre.-The following result, ays a New
York paper, has heen attained from certain experiments
made in the laboratory of Franklin College, Georgia, to
obtain inlanmnable gas from the berries of the tree called
Pride of India: "Apintofthe berries vwre capable ofyield-
ing 'Lom eight to ten gallons of good carburetted hydro-
gen gas, which burnt with a beautiful, mild, clear light, and
was without offensive smell." It is stated, that the light
waa as powerful and brilliant as that obtained from coal, oil,

It is calculated by Mr. Jacob, that thirt-twr thoemsted
