It is a proof of wifdom in governments, as well u
individuals, to fubmit to temporary evil., when calling
benefits may be thereby fccured.- The three caller
counties have submitted to a temporary evil in the
flagnation of their lumber butinefsl-have turned their
attention to agriculture, whereby they will facure to
themselves laing benefits: rp.-The three eaflerni

The withholding fraesn the polls cededby the treaty,

operated much against the interefl of one of thofe pro.

Our correfpondeut further obferves, that the preeso-

confolatory for our lots of the polls commanding the

By the left and moft authentic advices from Eng-
land, it is certain that the government ol that country
will not, on any terms, form a commercial treaty with
thi -the uniform language of all parties bing, that no
motive cxifs in favour of a treaty, One they can pocket
all the advantages of our commerce without uach a
measure.
A treaty of commerce between the United Statoe
and Portugal was agreed to at London, on the aitk
of April laft; it was then fined by the Ameriean
Minister., and before this, has been Fred by the Ile.
nipotentiary of Petugal. -N relaxation of the ret-.
tionn, prohibiting the importation of ort into Portl.
gal, could be obtained-the condition of that branch
of our commerce remains under the treaty as it formerly
was-the trade with Portugal haealways been a favee.r
able one to this country; with Portugal and Spain the
balance has been, as I will it was with all foreign as.
tions, in our favour.
There is ngt, in my opinion, any probability of a
peace with the Barbary powera.-Conagre are delitra
of that which alone can obtain it. It eancerainl whe
their even Spain has concluded a peace with Algiers.
'ee trucc eafed on the f&t of April left i a peace was
not then concluded.
The Envoa of Portugal and Naples were them
waiting at Cat gena for th event of the Ipanls W

cluded between Algir. Portual and Naples If it i,

It is a fad, that when the damp air is in any pit
or well, a candle will not burn in it, but will fo on
out ; therefore whoever goeth into any pit or well, ie
him frll light a candle, and with a terd let it down
if it burn free, he may safely venture to work in tho
well, if it bums doll or goe out, the damps are there,
and he had better keep out.
What the euavtat are which are emitted from
thefe damps, is fill a matter of doubt; fome fuppofl
