few late London papers, we have extract

scAting the occupation of Pensacola

scarcely necessary to mention, that the

any of their feelings of history past or pre.
sent,; so far removed are they from the
spirit of truth,when they make brief'u un-
'willing use of the truth itSelf.
But in a'nswerto something else, they
have shewn themselves aware that the U,
States have expressly said "they would]
make no appeals, to other, governments
in their coiltcrns with Spain." At least,
they said they. must decline soliciting or
acceding to the interference of any othet'
government "in justice to that funda-
mental system of poiitic ., which forbids
theinfrom entering the labyrinth of Eu-
ropiean politics."' In other words, thev
despise the chicanery and faithlessness oiF
these politics, and can afford to ,do' with-
Out them, iand be above them.. '\nd thi-
is doe of the greatest reasons why the le-
gitimate pretenders of all sorts. hate the
American republic, which- nevertheless,
like piodigioua wiie-acres, as they are,
they are ,etchirg- the rest of the world
to like .better every day.
As to the reasons of the United States
for seizing Pensacola, they will perhaps
refer the world to the vari.ety.of state pa-
pers which they have already publisl'ie.i
on the subject .oFlorida. We cannot
refer to them as wee could wisi, just at
this moment; but .we trust and believe,
that they will make out a gojodl case;as
we take exceeding interest in the honor,
welfare, and illustrious example s.-t by
the United 'States. The dispute on the
subjectd Sn oldl one; the circumstances
which retain or forfeit the right of phs-
session in such cases, are of various de-
sz; iptions; and we know, that some years
back, America expressly claimed a 'right'
to West Florida, and. said it was: only
waiting the r ult of negotiations with
Spain, to have it finally given up. Pro-.
bably it thinks it has waited too long ;
but at al events we shall expect to hear
why,whatever -we may think of the right
of the allied promise-breakers to hear it.
In the mean time, the politicians are
much perplexed. Sonrie think that Gen.
Jackson las exceeded his commission,
I .' e that he has acted upon a discretion-

ary one; and others suppose that .the
business has been concerted between the
two disputing powers themselvesin order.
a that Spain may be able to put some mo-
- ney in her pocket by the sale of Florida,
- and yct avoid a rupture with the court of
'St. James' by appealing to yield it on
s Wethink there may be some truth in
e this latter supposition, except that Ame-
r Pica would be paying for goods to which
s she says. sie has a right ay'd which must
inevitably fll into her hands before long.
At any rate, we conceive there is little
option of any sort on the part of Spain.--
: "The court of Spain, it is true, grievously
warois noney; and .%oul.d willingly part
with a colony 'to get some.. The king
ih can scarcely raise any, even for his court,

those who would have shrunk from the
idea of striking a decisive blow, and trom
depending on their own strength and ex-
ertions for the success of their enterprise,
eittered eagerly into the proposals of the
princess. By imposing upon her certain
restrictions and stipulating for certain
privileges, the revolutionists hoped, in ef-
fect, to retain the administration in their
own hands, which would enable them to
augment the strength and resources of
the country, and finally to remove the
princess, and assert their independence.
They accordingly despatched a secret a-
gent,* who arrived atRiode Janeiro with
proposals which ware -accepted by the
princess Carlotta. The mminist rial party
took alarm, and lord Strangford, who
knew the character of the princess, and
her enmity to the British, exerted himself
to oppose her views. Sir Sidney Smith,
the British admiral on that station, warm-
ly insisted on her right to govern the
Spanish colonkis, and offered to convey
her to Buenos Ayres. The dispute ran
so high between these gentlemen, that
lord Strangford complained to the British
government of the interference of Sir
Sidney, and the latter was recalled. The

princess, however, would not trust herself
among the" Spanish creoles without a mi-
litary force, and on this point the negoci-
ation failed. It had nevertheless served
to fonient the spirit of parity in the Portu-
guese cabinet, and to expose the views of
the revolutionists of Buenos Ayres. The
princess Carlotta afterwards determined
to support the royalists, and pawned her
jewels to send succor to' the garrison of
Monte Video. Notwithstanding the in-
terest excited by this question, and the
part taken in it by the princess, no obsta-
cle -was thrown in oar way, or opposition
made to our entering the Spanish colo-
unies. I found no difficulty in obtaining
passports to embark for the south.

Longevity.-Died, in Milton, in June
last, Mr. Alexander Ross, agecd about one
hundred and twenty. .Ar. Ross was a na-
tive of Scotland. k served in the army of
the pretender, in 1745. After his defeat,
aod the consequent ruitiof the army, Mr.
Ross came to America and served in the
army of Gen. Wolf, and was severely
wounded on the plains of Abraham. On
the breaking, out of the revolutionary wrt',
Mr. Ross, although very aged, took up
arms in defence of our country, and dis-
tinguished himself by his bravery and
soldier-like conduct, in several severe oc-
tions. He was a consistent patriot, a sin-
cere and faithful friend-honesty and in-
tegrity marked his way, and contentment
delighted in him. At the age of 1t7, he
was convinced that works, however fair,
would not, unless united with religion,
avail him. He then joined a respectable
church, and proved himself a useful and
zeilous member. He retained his mental
and bodily faculties to a surprising degree,
and died in the full assurance of entering
into the joys ef the faithful. .,

It is not true that any just claim of Gen.
St. Clair was barred by the statute of lim-
itationsand therefore rejected by the Ccn-
gress of the United States. It is not ne-
cessary to be minute in the history of pro-
ceedings in regard to his claim : it is e-
tiough to say, that, some- years ago, when
his claim was preferred, Congress, though
doubting its justice, granted him a sum'
of money in full of all his demands against
the United States. That timely aid ex-
hausted, he again presented himself a pe-
titioner to Congress, at their last session.
His claim was long debated, but was not
sustained to the satisfaction of thriasouse~
when, moved by the (distress of the hoary
veteran, whose ceieks were furrowed,and
his frame bowed down by age and hard-
ship, a pension was granted to him, on
the generous motion of him who most
earnestly opposed his claim, of six hun-
dred dollars per annum.
Gei. St. Clair was not, therefore, suf-
fered to sink in penury to the grave,"
but the rays of his country's beneficence
shed a mellow light on the evening of his
days. He had no just .claim on the go-
vernment, as he and his friends supposed;
but, what justice rejected, benevolence
awarded to his wants. It was not much,
it is true, but, from the reduced circum-
stances of his private affairs, it was much
to him, and twice" as much as had been
given to others in similar circumstances.
The habit of detracting from the merits
of Congress, of exciting popular odium
against the House of Representatives par-
ticularly, is surely to be. deprecated, be.
cause, of all others, in that branch of the
government ought popular confidence to
be most reposed. \We hope the Federal
Republican will do so much justice to the
country, as to retract what we presume
has been an error of'information, in the
case referred to.

The Emperors and Kings of Europe
appear to interchange civilities with great
cordiality. In the latter end of June, the ,
King of PaussIA paid a visit to the Em-
peror of Russit at his capital and was
cordially entertained for several days
with great state and splendor. Of the
instability of the friendships of such po-
tentates, however, this incident rather
serves.to remind us, than to produce dis.
belief. The cordial meetings, long in-
terviews, and embraces at parting, be-
tween the Emperors Alexander and Na-
poleon, a few months before the sangui-
nary conflicts of their armies among the
snows of Russia, are yet fresh in our re-
collection. We sincerely hope, however,
that the recent fraterrizations are the'
prelude to ro such tragedy.

intelligent and attentive correspondent at

learn the following interesting inews from
Venezuela. Notwithstanding the rivers
had inundated .the plains, and the cam- ,
paign was supposed to be at an end, Gen.
Paiz had the hardihood, with his troops,
to swim t'he rivers, and with his numer-
ous cavalry make au attack on the Roy-
alists in the plains of Varinas, who, not
suspectirg any danger, were reposing in
perfect security, and were completely de-
feated by this enterprising chief The
Royalists at Carraccas have, in conse-
quence, been thrown into much conster-
nation, apprehensive that they toe may
be unexpectedly visited. It was also ru-
mored that General M'Gregor had 1200
Englishmen employed on the Oronoke.
We also learn that Mr. Harrison, late
American Consul at St. Thomas's has
published in the'Gazette, that Mr. Na-
than Levy is appointed Consul from the
United States to St. Thomas's. -

Obitrtary.-Die., at his residence on
Chestnut Ridge, on the 31st ult. the ven-
erable General AarnTu. ST. CLAIRa, i,
the 84th year of his age
He was born in Edinburgh, and came tu
this country in the fleet commanded by
,Admiral Boscaw-n in 17355. At an early
period of his hfe, he took up the profes
sion of arms, and served as i lieutenant
in the British army u:-.der Gen. olfe,
at the taking of Quebec. He served dur
ing the whole of the French war of 1755,
in the course of which he was honored
with the friendship of Generals Wolfe,
Murray and Monckton under whose di
reactions he learned the art of war. Alter
retiring from the British army, l e settled
in Ligonier valley, on the scite of Ligon-
ier old fort, of which he had been the first
commandant. In 1773, Richard Penrn,
lieutenant governor of the province, ap
1)pointed him prothonotary and register
and recorder for Westmoreland county,
which ollices, with others: he hild in De-
cember, 1775, when he received from
congress a colonel's commission in the
continental service. Although this ap
pointment was without solicitation on his
part, he assumed the duties of his new
station with promptitude and alacrity, and
he recruited six full companies, and
marched them to the vicinity of Quebec
by the first of the next May. In tie cam-
paign of'76 he sevted in Canada, in com-
pany with colonel Wayne, under the or-
ders of generals Thompson and Sullivan,
and his knowledge of the coun:riy gain-
ed in the previous war, as well as his nmi-
litary expen;etnce, was of essential advan-
tage to the a-my. In the fll of the same
year he joined Gen. Washing-on in Jer-
sey, and first suggested that memory ble
russe de guerre, wnich tertiAiated in the
capture of the Hessians at Tr-n on, at'd
which revived the sinking spirits of the
armniy and the country, In the summer
of '77 he commanded icond.roga, .yhicha
post, bei-g untenable by th, small fuotC-s
under his colqnmand',was abando:ied,whicii
occasioned a load of unmerited 'obloqu)
to be thrown upon him at the tin.e. The
military tribunal, however, which inves.
tigated his cundqcit pronounced, that al-
though he lost a post he saved a state, and
all the well infotrned have since unequt-
vocaily approved his conduct. lie was
in the battle of Brandywine as a volun-
teer, not having at that time any com-
When the arrny marched southward,
,he was left in Pennsylvania, to urganise
and forward the troops of that state ; in
coltsequence of which he arrived at York-
town only -- shot ttime before the sur
render of the British army. From thence
lie went to the south, with a reinforce-
mnent to gen. Greene.
After ;he peace he was a member of
congress, and president of that body, and
in '88 he was appointed governor of the
then north western territory. In '91 he
was again appointed a major-general in
the army of the United States. In all
th, various stations and situations of his
life, after lie became known to general
Washington, he enjoyed the especial cun-
fidenceand friendship of that distinguish-
ed patriot.
Gen. St. Clair, in his domestic relbi-
tions, felt the tender synmp ,tli-s ,.f out
nature in their fullest force. In social life
he was much valued as a friend. His
conversation was instructive and interest-.
ing, enlivened by wit and embellished
with science. As a soldier and statesman
he possessed a piercing accuracy of mind,
and, fearless of censu.e from the short
sighted and presumptuous, he lo- ked to
the ultimate result rather than to the im-
mediate consequence of his actions. I hei
resources of his mind were best deve!etp-
ed in difficult and adverse circumstan-
ces ; and although fortune in some instan-
ces seemed determined to thwart hi,
purposes, his coolness, his courage and
his penetration, were above her reach.--
Providence seems to have designed that
the American revolution should disclose
every species of greatness ; and the sub-
Ject of this notice, after toiling with un.
subdued resolution against disaster, and
smiling upon adversity, fulfilled his des
tiny by descending to the tomb a great
man in.rUis8.
The afflictive spectacle of his last days
smites the heart with s..rrow. The friend
of Washington-the companion of his
glory ; he who by his cou sel turned the
the tide ou battle in the most gloomy pe-
riod of the revolution--he who in the
winter of'77, on the banks of the Dela
ware, lookirgon the broken army of lib-
erty, beheld at his word the light of en-
thusiasm gleamn over the brow of muisfor-
tune-he, who in '83,befo!e the entrench
ment of York, standing by the.side of the
father cf his country and participating his
feelings, saw the liberty of that country
sealed by the surrender of its foes, closed
his life in neglected solitude. On the
summit of the Chesnut Ridge which o-
verlooks the valley of Ligonier, in which
the commencement of the revoalu'ion
found him in prosperity ; ons this ktne-
some spot, exposed to winter winds, as
cold and desolating as the tardy gratittide
of his country,died Major General Arthur
St. Clair. The traveller as he passed the
place, was reminded of the celebrated Ro-
man exile's reply, tell the citizens of
Rome that you saw Caius Marius si ting
amongst the ruins of Carthage.' He is

Circular ct Colle tors, avl OPjfiers, uni' Sur
Comptroller's ofli.te Aug-.31. 18 I.
SiR-Sinc, the passage at the act o0
Congress of the last session colcerii. g
navigation, an order of the British coutcil
is understood to have been issued,founded
upon an act of parliament, whereby the
ports ol Halifax, in the provi, ce of Nova
Scotia, a--d of St. John's in that of New-
Brunswick, havt been opened to vessels
of the U united States, for the- importation
*- certain sp cihied articles, and for a term
of timc,litnited by the act of parliament to
firee years and six weeks after the com-
inencement of the first session of parlia-
ment, then next ensuing; and by the or
,der of council subjected to the. further
limitation of contingent further order.
As neither this act of parliament, nor
the order in council, issued under its au-
thority, have affected any alteration oat
the ordinary laws of navigation and trade,
by which the ports of Halifax and -t.
Johns's are closed agaii st vessels owned
by citizens of the United States ; neither
can they in any manner affect the opera-
tion of the act of corngress,concerniug na-
vigation, of 13th April, 18 18.
The ports of the United States will,
therefore, be closed awaits: Btitish ves-
sels, from Halifax and St. Johais, in bie
nianner,-as if no such act of parliament.
and order of council had been issued.'
It is considered that the second section
of the act concerning navigation, take,-
with the proviso guarding aga;itt atny
construction of the act which rniiht vio-
late the commercial convention of 3L1
July, 1815, leaves a discretionary author-
ity to dispense with exaction of the bonds,
prescribed by that section, in cases of ves-
sels and cargoes, manifestly engaged on-
ly in.the direct trade between th-e United
States and the British ports in Europe.
You will, therefore, require those. bon'.ls
and securities to:be given, for all such
articles, lade., by British vessels for expou--
tation from the United States, as are suita
bile for the colonial ma:keLt s, or are per-
mitted, by the British laws, to be import-
eJ into them.
amongg the articles for which the bonds
amid. sOcuiiltes must be taken, are scant-
ling, pla.itks, staves, heading, boards, shitn-
gles, ho6ps, horses, neat cattle, sheep,
hogs. poutl'Vy, or live stock of any sort ;
dried, smo;kert or pickled fish, bread, l i*-
cuit; flour, pea beans, potatoes, wheat,
rice, oats, barltf', or grain of any sot ;
pitch, tar, turpethtine,.iruits, seeds, and
The articles upot- the exportation of
which in British vesse,'s the bonds and
scuriiies may be dispL-n'cd with, are cot-
ton, sugar, indigo, flaxse'd, coffee, pot
and pearl ash ; and generally all articles
not oft the growth, produce or manuac-
ture of the United States.
In the circular instructions ftrom this
departiaren of the 24th ultimo, are con-
rained the. l'ilowing words: a British
vessel sailing from a port not. opened to
vessels owised by citizens of the UniUt.d
States, entering a, port which is open, !-Wi
iading there, ar', taking the same or
ome other cargo on board, and clearing
thence for a port of the United States, ca.i
not be admitted to an entry." Having
been advised, that a niors extensive con
struction will ,..:_ .tt) be given to these
words, thin they were intended to cvnvey,
I take occasion to observe, that aiihotuglt
the expression, a p.)rt which is peo,"
as there usmed, was meant to have .r' fe-p-
ence more immediately to liritish colo:nia!
pmrts, yet it is to be construed as 'also
applying to British ports in Europe, but
not in an unlimited sense. A 1t3iti-h
vessel taking in a cargo at an occuidcd
port for a British Eurcpeait port ; there
unlading the same, and taking a newv car-
go on board, no part thereof having, at
any time, been brought in the same yes.
sd from an occluded port, and consisti ig
of articles which maybe lawfully imp(.rt,-
ed into the United Slates in vessels own-
ed by British subjects, will be entitled to
an entry.
The same privilege,it is to be observed,
however, cannot be extended to Britis!.
vessels employed between different colo-
nial ports.
In the former case, the vessels may be
considered as havingbecome entitled to
the benefits of the. commercial convention
of the 3d of July. 1815, whilst, in the lat-
ter, the trade being, by the convention
placed upon the looti g'that each of the
contracting parties, retaining the conm-
plete possession of its rights, could make-
any regulations in relation to such trade
as it might deem expedient, the vessels
are liable to the disqahifications of the
act of Congress of the last session, con-
cerning navigation. The law itself is an
act of sell-preservatiin, and intended to
counteract .he restrictive colonial system
of Great Britain.
We understand that a Convention of
the Presidents and Cashiers-of the Bank
of New York, Manhattan lank, Bank ot
America, Aerchants' Bnk,Uioion Bank,
City Bank, Pha-nix Bark, and 'franklin
Bank, took place on Saturday last, to take
into consideration the expediency oi re-
ceiving the pap'r of the several branches
of the United States' Bank. We do not
know the result, but Ibehlieve a conference
will again take place on Wedr.esday,
when a uniform system will be agreed
upon; It would be very desirable that
the Boston and Baltimore Branches be
taken, and perhaps more cannot be ex-
pected from our city Banks.-[ Columb.

BtiUssEtLS, JULY 27.'.
The harangues are finished in London;
the ebclioni aid -terminated ; the hust-
ings are demolished. Covent Garden has
exhibited a comedy more singular than,
any of the farces which have been exhib-
ited in the theatre which bears its name.
The Dung Cart Tribunes, the Cabbages,
the Orations, and the abuse; the Potatoes
and the Bailiffs ; the Stones and the Con
stables; the dirt and the vocifL rations.;
have had the desired effect of charming
and cooling the fury of the multitude who
attended Westminster election. The min-
isterial pariy has been defeated, 'and Sir
Francis Burdett remains -'t' te Pride oof
VWestminster an: the glory of iEngland!"
The court candidate has been covered
with mud, spit on and almost assassinat-
ed It would appear from the conduct
of the Partizans of reform, that the spi-
rit of the opposition.in 1818, will not bear
any resemblance to that of 1769. ',The
liberalspirit cf the age has become de-
bauched in Great Baitain, The time has
at length arrived when the French, have
grown wiser and more rational than the'
people who were once the only frec nation
in Europe, and wholi opened that course
to us, in which at first, our career was as
furious as insensible, but which we 'have
closed with dignity anti h nor at the pa-
ternal voice of, a wise and enlightened
King. France is no longer a subject of
hatred or dread to the nations of Europe,
and she will speedily become an object
for their imitation.

Extract of a letter dated Madrid, July 16.
"Letters received here from Sicily

Cadiz, which they captured and ordered for
Buenos Ayres. Nothing remarkable took place
until the 4th of July, vwien, being as far south
as latitude 4 00, a pirt of the prize-crew, con-
sisting of Americans and Englishmen, agreed
to proceed to the Un.ted States, and the better
to enable them to accomplish their design, they
came to the resolution of throwing the prize-
master and mate into the sea. Thlie first a tack
was on the mate-having succeeded in this, they
;iext attacked the prize master, and, after a
short resistance, threw him over-hlie, however,
caught hold ofa rope, and, in this situation, fin.
plored, but in vain, for mercy, as they stabbed
him several tines, and finally lost the rope, and
Ie went astern, and was seen no more. The-
