national flag, 'but does not acknowledge
the truce. :
"As might be expected,some little sen
station and animosity bursts forth among
'individuals, but 'no hostile .meUsures are
noticed in the government, which I amt
happy, to inform you, lest appre-hension'
might be entertained relative to the safe-
ty of American property in this place.'

Nothing (says the Newv York Adyerti.
.ser) can more strongly prove the attpch-
ment of our countrymen to their liber-
ties, and 'national as well asindividual en-
joy'ments, than the fact, so obviously true,
that forty-two years have 'not, in 'any de-
gree, .cooled ttheit enthusiasm, on the re-
turn of this jo.yful.anniversary.. We hope
and trust it may prove such to the peo-
ple of t e' United States to the latest pe-
riod of time.

In )S 1-5, the whole number of potes re-

doin had 6001, and was of course elected.
The number of votes given in that state,
on similar occasions, within a few years
past, has amounted to nearly 100,000.
h3uch a difference in the saq0e commnni-
ty id thirty years, is a extraordinary fact
in political history.

The Potomac river fisheries, from the
mouth of the Occcquan upwards, have
turnicd out less productive the last season
ttun usual heretofore, owing, it is gene-
raliy believed, to the very extraordinary
cold and tempestuous weather during the
month of April, and part of May. Al-
though a considerable take of the best
quality herring was caught later in the
season than wts ever before known, still
complaints are generally going forth a-
gainst the encroachments on the shores
,f the gill-net iiehermien and steam-boat
This bountiful gift of such myriads of
herring, and the finest quality too, is hke-
ly to he improved upon next year, by the
better making vy of barrelled fish at the
seines, and by vessels frinom distant quar-
tes bringing every material for their
cure on boatid aod at anchor.
A party from the Upper Chesapeake
are about to introduce the use of stur-
geon-nets of !-.rge mesb, bugged a little
in the middle, antd of such breadth as
to sweep mtne channel bo.toms from six to
twelve tatho'mn deep in most places, for
the lar ger takes of this valuable fish foi
pickling in barrels, or in the salmon kep-
par mode, and for the extract of oil, in-
stead of the tedious old mode of lines with

black With two white and one red streaks
on the Larboard side, from 160 .o u180
tons. She reported herself a patriotic ves-
sel, 3 weeks from Buenos Ayres, com-.
manded by a mulatto looking man, suppo-
setl to be a Spaniard, named Peters ; the
vessel was named by themn the Patriot.

The U. States' frigate Macedonian,
which wee stated, a few days since, to be
refitting at Bo too, will .be commanded
by Capt. Dotvnes,is to proceed to the Pa-
cific Ucean, mouth of the River Colum-
bia, on N. W. Coast of America, and
will probably not return in less than two
years.-The Querricre, Capt. M1cDo-

The counsellor sat down with a stupid self

pistoles divided by twenty-five days, the
artist weula be paid at a higher rate than

and as he spoke, Cano dashed his statue

racter th the usual! strain of low abuse
in itfi federal papers, as to excite very
litti surprise-however we may pity the
iraporance or despite the folly of its au-
ihorp. To enable our reader to form
sonie judgment on this interesting sub-
ject we publish some extracts from the
Edinburg Review, for November, 1817 .
It is unnecessary to say that this work
stands confessedly at the head of the pe-
riodical publications of Great Britain.-
For profound learning, extensive talents
and enlighitened vi,:ws, no writers of the
-prcse'nt age can be milentioned superior to
the conductors of the Edinburg Review.
Thi opinion of such men re2e;-cti:n.! the

be considered as desert ving quite as mucii
attention as the illiberal and interested
remarks of our federal papers. It will
be seen that they speak of -Mr. Bentham
with the utmost respect, and regard his
under, taking as extremely interesting and
important. It will be seen, too, that Gov.
Plimer is not alone in supposing that it
will have to encounter the interested op
position of a host o! lawyers.
Mr. Bentham is now far advanced in
a life which he has generously devoted to
the service of his fellow cheatuies. -ore
than fifty years he has employed in labors
which had no other object than to im-
prove the condition of mankind. Accor-
ding to him, utility is the foundation of all
morals, and should be the object of all
legislation ; not that attention to the in-
terests of particular individuals at the ex-
pe-,ce of the general good-that selfish-
ness, which some moralis's affect to un
dem sta:d as meatat, by what is useful-
but general iti ity-;--ast.g-menatuon .f
the happiness, and a dicrinution of the
misery of the great mass of individuals of
which every community is composed.
Never did any philosopher better con-
form his life to his doctrines, or more
h.oppily illustrate h's pri! ciples by his
conduct. He has consumed his days in
endeavoring to be useful to others ; but,
according to the common notions of the
world, he hasspent themuselessly to him-
self Having completed his education at
Westminster school, and afterwards at
the university at Oxford, with much dis
tinction, he was called early to tIce bar.
.His conne.xito-s or-:r._h was__ s tb_-an .La
yeiry eminent solicitor) must have given
him an early introduction to business;
and his learning, his extraordinary tal-
ents, and his indefatigable application,
rendered his success in the p uiessioi, if
he had continued to follow it, a matter of
certainty. The first eminence at the
bar, and the opulence which attends it,
were at his command ; and if he could
have persuaded himself to accommodate
his political principles to the wishes of
those in power, the most splendid station
and the highest honors would have been
within. his reach.. From _hosz brilliant
..-ocetc mI-TliT turned away ;
and after a very fe.w years of prac ice he
relinquished the profcision, shut hirnscif
up in the retirement of his study, and
devoted himself to the task of legislation.
A citizen of the. world in its pures-t sense,
lie has suffered no opportunity which has
presented itself of benefiting his fellow-
men in any portion of the glube, to pass
away without endeavoring to improve it.
"To France, at the beginning of the re-
v:Au-ion, when every generous and en-
ligh ened mind looked forward with san-
guine hopes to the blessings that seem-
ed dawning on mankind, and when ilhe
national assembly was in possession of
means of niprovingthle human condition,
such as never .)-fore were commanded by
an a-sse mbly of imen-to France, at that
moment of d-lusive Ieoi,, he made the
generous tender of his services. Upon
-thi.ir judicial establishments, upon thicir
colonies, and upon the conduct, or, as lhe
terry ed.i i, the tactics of their assembly,
he composed and translMitted to thiem dif-
ferent tracts, containing new, but at thu
same time the soundest ;lews of reason
and of policy. If the rals faor governing

ing his philanthropic labors. With re-
spect to his o\vn country, whenever an
occasion has occu red f .t'r cffeing any in,

eagerly availed him r-elf of it. Upon the

tant topics he has given to the public his
enilaried anoi.enighttened views. And ihe
has labored for ail nations, anrid lIr a-es

The luxuriance ofthe vegetation near the
mou h gave to it a character which, in a
less favored climate, it would Pot have
possessed; for,'as our amihor very justly
observers it is with the openings of ca-
verns as with the view of cascades, the
character of he local scenery, and of the
surrounding country, constitutes the prin -
cipal charm. The bird of night which
inhabits the Cueva de Guacharo is more
curious than the cavern. It is a new ge-
nus, nearly allied to that of Ca;primul-
!,us, to which M. de [Humboldt has given
the significant name of Steatornis.
"It is dih!icult to form an idea of the
frightful noise made by thousands of
these birds in the dak ptart 'f the'
cavern. It can he cumpited only to that

The shrill anid p;srcing tones of the {G'ua
charo reverberate from the arched mrool,
and echo repeats them in the depths of
the cavern. The Intdians, by fixing tor
ches to the end of a lit: pole, pointed
out ,to us the nests of these birda ; the,,
were fifty or sixty feet ab,)ov' our heads,
in funnel shap-'d hole, with which the:
whole roof of the grotto is riddled. The
noise increased with oa0r advance, and

with the alarm of hie birds at the flare oF

Cueva dtl Guccharo, about midsummer,
finished with poles, with which they
destroy the greater part of the nests. At

abundance of :t in frugivorous-anirAals,
not exposed to th- light, and having few
muscular motions, reminds us of the in-
clination to obesity long observed in geese
8c oxen. We know how very much dark-
ness and repose favors this process. Eu-
ropean birds of night are meagre, be-
cause, instead of feeding on fruit, like
the Guacharo, they live on the scanty
produce of he chase. At the period
commonly termed the oil harvest, the
Indians constructlittle habitations of palm
leaves close to the opening, and even in
.the mouth of the cavern. 'We saw some
remains of such still standing. Here,
over a fire of dry sticks, the grease of the
young birds just killed, is melted and ruan
into pots of white clay. This grease,
known by the name of Guacharo butter,
or oil, (manteca or oceibc) is semi-liquid,
transparent and inodorous ; and so pure,
that it may be kept more than a twelve-
month without becoming rancid. At the
convent of Caripe, no oil but that of the
cavern was used in the monks' kitchen,
and we never found it .-e to the dish ei-
ther a disagreeable taste or smell."

not hostile, but more sour and unsocial
than he had expected to find them. The
whites who reside among them were also
generally unaccommodating. To one of
the whites who appeared more pleasant
and communicative than others, our in-
formant remarked that the half-breeds
did not manifest that friendly social, dis-
position toward their white brethrea so-
journing through the nation, that they
had been celebrated for by some travellers;
he replied that the half-breeds had gene-
rally selected lands'and opened farms,
from which they realized considerable pro-
fits annually, and that the white people, as
well as the half-breeds, were dissatisfied
.at the almost'certain prospect of the Che-
rokee country being given in exchange
to the United States for lands west of the
Mississippi River, at a treaty which was
to have commenced on the 24th ult. at

The New Orleans Gazette of the 12th
of June, states, that Tios. B. ROBERT-
soN has resigned his seat in Congress, in
consequence of ill health, and that Ed-
ward Livingston, Thomas Butler, and
Josiah Johnson, Esqrs. have all offered
themselves as candidates for Congress.
We lament this determination on the-.
part of Mr. Robertson ; by which the
country in general, and his district in
particular, are deprived of the services
of an upright, honorable and intelligent
Representative. A more stern and un-
bending Republican does not live: and,
when with these qualities we combine
Mr. R's assiduity and information on
mattersof business, it is with reason we
regret his retirement fi'rom public life,

On Saturday the 4th, an election wae
to be held in the several towns in Con-
necticut for Delegates to attend a State
Convention to decide upon the question
whether a written Constitutionh shouh

course, heard the result, we have no doub
it will be favorable to the formation o
a constitution. -.

Capitulation of -Pensacola.-A New-
Orleans paper of June 12 contains the ar.
ticles of capitulation of Fort St. Charles
Barancas, in Pensacola, totheoarry utdet
the command of Major Ge- eral Jackson
The capitulation consists of 23 articles
which occupy two columns of a ,ew Or
leans paper. The following are amo:!g
the most important 6f the conditions re
quired. The garrison to march out with
the honors of war,their arms to be stack
ed at the foot of the glacis, where they
were to ken-ain until the troops were em-
barked for Havana, when they will be re-
turned. The officers and troops to carry
with them their personal effects. All ti-
tles legally derived from the crown of
Spain, prior to this date, to be guaranteed
and respected. The garrison to be tran-
spotted to Havana on account of the U,
States, and Spanish rations to be allowed
w here they do pot exceed those of the U
lat~s. \A '-ompetent number of vessels
ito h< :urnishi-d for embarking the person.
al effects, papers, &c. of the governor
and those in the civil and military office
to be delivered up without inspection.--
The sick and wounded to be maintained
by the United States. The garrison of
Pensacola to enjoy the same privileges a>
the garrison of yBarancas. The provi-
sions actually founrd-in the two places to
be appropriated for-the Spanish troops
Individuals disposed to remain in Florida
to be respected and protected. The offi
cers and troops to be transported to Pen-
sacola, where they shall remain until em-
barked for Havana. The Alabama chief
now in the fort, named Opayhola, shall
be included in this capitulation, the go-
vernor engaging that he shall never re-
turn to Florida.- A free toleration to all
religions granted. Any Spanish vessels

ART, 19. The capitulation is made it-
der the confidence tba: the general of the
American troops will comply with
his offer of returning integrally this
province in the state in which he
received it, as stated in his official letter.
Approved-and the restoration made un-
der the conditions expressed in General
Jackson's communication to the Gover-
nor of Pensacola, dated 23d May, 1818.


By the packet Queensbury, which has
arrived at Halifax from ELngland, a copy
of the act of Parliament for establishing
a free port in Nova Scotia, and another
in New-Brunswick, was brought. It re-
ceived thle royal assent on the 8th of
fay; but the order in council, to desig-
nate the ports and establish the regular.
tions, it scems,had not been issued so late
as the 22d of May, but was expected at
Halifax by a sloop of war which was to
sail from England the fhrst of June. Till
this order is received, the act cannot go
into operation.
This measure will not be altogether
satisfactory to the British West India Is-
andls, as, for several months.in the yeah,
th... e navigation to Neva Scotia and New-
Bruitsswick is not-convenicnt and safe.
The act was passed in the House of
Lords without debate.

Sports of the. West.--A'gentleman iii
this neighborhood has recently received a
letter from his friend in East Tennessee,
in whom he places entire cot'fidet ce,
which states, That his neighbors had a
squirrel hunt some time this spring, and
shot to the number of 2000 squirrels it,
one day, anid thought they had done won-
ders. But their boasting was st pped by
an account of a hunt the people had ini
West Tennessee, about the same time.
There was a company took up a bet of
500 dollars withI another company, wht
should get the most scalp". They turn-.
ed out, and in one day tht whole of then
had shot 33,000 souirrets."

The return of this ever-memorable and
s glorious Festival was, celebrated with the
- usial demonstrations 'of joy and !iilarity.
e Business was suspended, and the stores
F generally closed. A handsome salute was
i fired by the Eagle Artilckry, under the
command of capt. Duncai., at dqy light,
F ;n Chinquopin Hill;likewise another
t from Fort McHenry.
f The different papers in the city had an-
nouned that the steam boat Unnited States
would be launched on the morning of that
- day from the ship-yard of Mce -r. Flan-
. mnga and BLeahem, Fell's-Point. With
a view of gi ying to the residents of the
' city an opportunity 6f witnessing it, the
steam boat Chesapeake left Bowley's
* wharf, at an early hour, and came too a-
, bout 300 yards to the right of the Unztedr
States, having on board a brilliant asseui-
blage of Lsadies; and as we are informed
about 4i0 gentlemen. A few minutes af-
' ter 10 o'clock the U. S. glided majestic.
. cally into her destined elerneist, amid the
y shouts and huzzas of an immense con-
- course assembled to witness that truly de-
- lightful scene.
An Oration was delivered at 11 o'clock
- before the Protection city and a nu-
F merous auditory, by Mr. TysoN.

The 4-3dr anniversary of American In-
dependence was j...) fully celebrated in
this city. The voiunteer- corps of artil-
lery, cavalry and infantry turned out and
fired ajieu de joie, 'the church bells'
thundering harmony stunned the glad
ear,' and every business seemed nearly
as completely at a sjandi as though the
day were aw-eligious, hot a criticalal Sab-
F bath. About 2 o'clock, a respectable as
Ssembla;e of citizens in the County Court
SHouse were gratified by hearing the de-
claration of .ndeficna-see read by James
X .'. Barker, Esq. and an '2ran, deliver-
ed by Dr. Samuel Jack on.,

.The anniversary of ihe declaration of
ind upendence 'was celebratcoiri-this city on
Saturday last with usual demonstrations
of universal joy. The bells were rung
at sun rise and sun set, and salu.es were
fired from most of the forts in the harbor :
the military paraded at 10 o'"zlock and
-were reviewed by general Morton in
Hud ori tr i ; after which they march-
ed off the ground in a very handsome
style, passing and saluting the mayor
and the civil authorities who wereassecmn
bild on the steps of the city-hall.
The several societies assembled int
character and walked in processit.n to
the circus, where, an, oration suitable to
the occasion was delivered by William
Price, Esq.
In the evening, though the weather was
a little damp, the various public gardens
were tastefully illuminated; and other
places of fashionable resort, the park the-
atre and the pavilion theatre, thronged.
The mayor received an uncommonly
large crowd 'of visitors at the city-hall.
The Society of Cincinnati dined together
at Washington Hall. The corporation
very humanely spent thelatter part of the
day at the penitentiary; had a splendid
feast and dined suniptuously, surrounded
by the poor of the city ; to whom I dare
say, they distributed a plenty of the
crumbs that wept from their table. Maif-
fey had his automatons in full exercise,
and astonished the natives at Washington
Hall. Steam boats were put in requisi-
tion ipon our waters, and in short mirth
and glee claimed the city and its environs
as their own. How could a Fourth of
July be kept better?

The brig General San Martin, belong-
ing to the Republican Government of
Buenos Ayres, and commanded by Jose
Guillermo Estifano, arrived off this an-
chorage yesterday. Sihe is bound to
Margarita, to be repaired, and has on
board Don Pedro Gual, Venezulian min-
