Osage tribes  The society is com  posed ofdifferent denominations of Chris  tians  and among its officers  patrons and  supporters  are found men of the first  standing and respectability in our coun

labor of love  The objects  which interest the society arc the sava  ges of our forest  The situation fixed  as the scene of its present operations  is  in the Arkansas Territory  on a branch  of the Arkansas river  800 miles r roin  its junction with the Mississippi  and  1400 miles by water to the west of the  Falls of Ohio  The lamily who have  devoted themselves and their services  to the society and the heathen  we be  lieve are well fitted for this benevolent  enterprise  Improved by education and  sanctioned by grace  they carry with  tlem the meek and benevolent spirit of  the gospel  and the improvements of  civilized life  Glowing with the warm  est affection for the heathen and cheer  fully renouncing the dearest earthly en  joyments for their sakes  they will not  fail

British were  mt  in possession of that place  and as 1  was returning home was seized by a  savages and brought before the cele  brated monster Colonel James  After  insulting and heaping on me all tlic  vulgar abuse of vankee  rebel  See  be  was master of  he ordered Ids soldiers  to force me into a cellar  which was  then half full of water  I  va3 left but a  short time there  when I was conducted  by a strong guard to a loathsome pris  on  and there fettered with Strong hand  cuffs  I was denied all communication  with my friends  and none of them were  permitted to send me a blanket or any  thing else  that would render my situa  tion a little comfortable  I remained  in that situation only two da s and  nights  Avhen by the help of God  1  made my escape into the woods  I lay  there three days and wights and suffer   cred much fvich hungerCol  James  with his troops and upwards of three  nundred Indians were in hunt for me  I canid hear the tery woods alive with  the savage yell  A reward of three  hundred dollars was promised to the  first who would bring in my scalpbut  the hand ot providence favored me find  on the third night about daylight  I  found a small canoe not a great distance  from the Indian encampmetit  that was  lined along the river abo c and below  It was hauled on shore  but having  found a small board which served as  paddle  I pushed it into the water  and  notwithstanding the barking of the In  dians dogs which were not far off  cros  sed in safety io the American shore  and bid defiance to the tyrant    Will you not think it somewhat  strange  that Colonel Anthony Butler  should have Colonel James dining with  him in Detroit  when I was lying in i   rons at Sandwich  Whatever you may  think of it  such is the fact  But I have  every reason to suppose  that Ma  jor Puthoff  the second in command   who felt very indignant on the occasion   would have proved himself worthy of  the name of an American  had he only  the same power vested in him    Colorid James came for the first time  after that affair to this shore on a visit  to Gen  Macomb  The moment he  toucked the shore he was arrested and  gave the General as his bail    The reason why I was treated in the  above described harsh manner  was be  cause I raised a iroop of volunteers to  serve for throe months when the place  was very v er k and in danger of being  at lac Led  The ostensible reason was  because I was an European by birth   ard though 1 left ipy native country  when x child  though when I came of  age  1 was naturalized according to law

years  since  by a fellow who conceived the  design  and put it in execution  of get  ting into the vault  from the culvert  under the street at that time he en  tered the sewer  in Market street  and  groped his way about two hundred  yards  till he came opposite the vault   We have collected the following cir  cumstances relative to the present at  tempt  Monday  after night fall  a per  son was seen to enter the sewer in Hud  sons alley  and as the fellow who bbLwe  committed the robbery bad been recent  ly released from the Penitentiary  the  circumstances excited alarm  Tuesday  morning guards were placed at all the  outlets of the common sewers  and  a  search was set op foot  In the after    noon  tbe persons employed to ransack  the sewers  discovered mining tools   consisting of a crowbar  a mattock  and  a shovel  an umbrella handle containing  a diik and a small batteaux that had been  carded in from the river  a bottle of spir  it  a great coat  some oil  See  Guards  were still kept at the outlets last night   as it was supposed the robbers might  be somewhere concealed in the subter   rmeolis passages  It was rumoured  that the witness to a person entering  the sewer  in den lifted him with Robin  son  the robber above alluded to  Trie  batteaux of course was concealed for the  purpose of transporting the contents 1  of the vault of the Bank  and  perhaps   firstly to carry away the dirt  Union    horrTd iurder    On Wednesday last  in Woodford  County two men  one named Nathaniel  Peters  the other Darnell  had a quarrel   which produced a personal rencounter

parts of the constitution are  in general   deemed liberal and enlightened  and calcula  ted to ensure an able government to the  state of Missouri The article on slavery will  probably meet with the

appears that in 1819  a couri  er arrived in Buenos Ayres  from Paris   with communications from Don Jose  Valentin Gomez  envoy extraordinary  in France  with a proposition of the  French government to establish a Con  stitutional Monarchy in South America   These communications  the Supreme    Director Rondeau called upon his Con  gress to take into immediate considera  tion  The Piitiuc w liv

 who was 18 years of age  promise to so  licit for him the alliance of a Princess  of Brazil  and to assist him with money  and arms  This Prince  it is stated   would meet the approbations of the Em  perors of Austria  Russia  See  and his  alliance with a Princess of Brazil would    unite  thro family ties  the govern  ments  That with respect to the Uni  ted States  the Envoy says  as their in

ea  sily removed  On the 12th of Nov   1819  the proposition of the French   government was under discussion in  Congress at Buenos Ayrts  in a secret  session  and read three t me 3   when the

of  competent judges  who witnessed it  for sav  ing  that the young gentlemen sustained it  with great ability and success  Abstruse and  difficult questions  of which a variety was not  wanting  were answered  with promptness   perspicuity and intelligence  Seldom  per  haps  has been witnessed  in any of the  seminaries of the older parts of our country   a severer inquisition by  the

concerning its in  terest and brilliancy  The Juniors have  how  ever  distinguished themselves particularly  upon this public trial  Their translations of  passages  miscellaneously selected from the  higher Greek and Latin authors  were ready   accurate  and elegant  Their answers to a  great variety of questions in Roman A iniqui  ties were uncommonly prompt  full  and exact   Jn Mathematics and

obscure the brilliant reputa  tion of a long tried patriot  Let us  however endeavour to penetrato the  mist and to discover the truth  Let us  take the whole mass of testimony   as it  is called  examine it fairly and impartial  ly  and see to what it amounts  AVha   then is the charge  That General A   dair was privy to  and connected with   a treasonable plot devised by Aaron  Burr to dissolve the Union  Itrwrll be  seen by any one who reads the essays  ofBrutus with attention  that he arlfujy  and disingenuously mixes together the  narrative of transactions and extracts of  letters by Barr and Adair  so as fra  quently to leave the reader in doubt to  which individual he alludes  If how    ever we attentively examine the matter   we shall find that he labours  very un  necessarily at the present day  to prove  tlye illegitimate designs of Burr  that he  showsa connection with him of his prin  cipal witness  Wilkinson  for the pro  motion of these designs  and that all he  proves on the subject  in reference to  Ad ait  is the wish of these conspirators  to unite him with them  aid the  attempt  afterwards  of Wilkinson to be  revenged for a want of success in the ef  fort to enlist him  by arresting him on  a charge  utterly unfounded and mali  cious  We shall throw entirely ouuo  view the letters of Burr and Wilkinson   so far as they relate to plots ofjtheir  own  as they certainly do not tend in the  slightest degree to criminate General  Adair  It is worthy however of remark  that some of the documents adduced to  show the guilt ot the latter gentleman   tend of themselves to prove his inno  cence  For example  it appears that in  March 1805  Burr wrote to Wilkinson   a letter to Adair would be acceptable   Burr Sc Adair were then at that timoslran   Li May 1 805  Wilkinson writes    for  and were persuaded by the other  two to fix them finally at g2500  only in  consideration of the inability of Wil  kinson to pay a larger amount  If dr   xurnstances like these do not prove the  innocence of a manif his acquittal  in  the first place  when his accuser mu t  nave been in possession of all the possi  ble evidence against him  and his reco  very afterwards of exemplary damages  for this very prosecution  are not evi  dence of the maliciousness and baseness  of the charges against him  I am unable  to conjecture how innocence can be  proved    It is said that General Adair  in con  versation with J  S  Smith  who had  him in custody after his arrest at New  Orleans  remarked that if he had been  permitted to remain forty eight hours  in New Orleans unmolested  it wonildnot  have been in the power of General Wil  kinson to have arrested him  that he be  lieved he had more friends in New Or  leans than the General   and if he had  known or thought the General would   ave arrested him  he would have  brought with him his equipage for his  protection  Let it be  recollected that  this is a loose statement ot a conversa  tion made by a man strongly prejudiced    nd disposed to put his own construc  tor  upon it  And what  after all  does  it amount to  To the expression of an  opinion that he  General Adair  had  more friends in New Orleans  than Wil  kinson  and that if he had not been ar  rested instantly  his friends might have   Kp n r 1 tr   wl __i     gers     m every  United    and cheriiied by kindred

you all  Still it appears A   dair was unacquainted with the designs   Wilkinson addsWe muS  have    peep at the unknown world beyond  me  It should be recollected that at  this time a war with Spain was gener  ally and confidently expected  and  in  such an event  nothing would have been  more probable or more proper than to  explore the unknown world alluded  to  In January 1806  nine months after  the effort by Burr to get an introduction  to Adair  the latter appears still in the  dark on the subject and is even unac  quainted with the geography of the  country it is contemplated to visit   Does this look like a connection with  the plot  By no means    It is said however that Adair was in  company with Burr during his visit  af  terwards  to Kentucky  And who was  not in company with him  How should  a man conduct who was introduced to  an individual of such high standing as  Col  Burr  the ex vice president of the  United States  who was not at that  ufT  n f time proved guilty of any crime  The  buuts 0 statement that Adair was in habits of  familiarity with him is utterly false   Ihc assertion  said to be on the author  ity of Mr  Bibb  that he paid him  nightly visits I have proved to be false   and it remains for Mr  Bibb to explain  how he could have known of such vis  its  had they been paid  without being  himself either an accomplice or an  eves dropper  General Adair was two  or three times only in company with  Burr during his continuance in Ken  tucky  and if this circumstance is evi  dence against him  what sha   l we say  of those men who gave him balls and  parties what shall be though  of Mr   Clay himself  who volunteered to de  fend the traitor  and as we are informed  without the expectation of a fee  It  should be recollected  that at that time  Burr had not been convicted  or even  generally suspected of any treasonble  designs  and that every man of respect  ability in the country felt bound to  treat him with civility and respect    After the probability of a Spanish  war was at an end  wc see no more  mention of Adair in any communica  tions between Wilkinson and Burr  and  indeed we have no evidence whatever   I repepi it  w e have not a particle of  evidence that Adair was ever made  acquainted with the designs of those  men  It is proved indeed  that they  were desirous of obtaining his co oper  ation  that they gave him distant hima  on the subject  but it is proved like  wise  by Brutus himself  that in the  course of nine months  they did not e   ven trust him so far as to give him his  first lesson  and it is  not proved that he  was ever afterwards further instruct  ed    At a subsequent    us the enjoyment    been inclined to defend him against it  As respects his equipage  the probabi   lity is  if he ever used the expression at  ail  that it has not been fairly quoted  Eve  ry one knows how easy it is to misrepre  sent a conversation  and Adair may per  haps have said  that if he had expected  an arrest  he  oukl have been provided  with better accommodations and more  comfortaWe protection from the inclem  encies of the season  and the unpleasant  exposure to which he was subjected    I shall pursue this investigation fur  ther hereafter        to request that the public will weigh the  statements of Brutus fairly and with all  due deliberation  that they will sift the

pitiful tone  cried  out  Mungo  Mpngo  why dost thou  kill me  let me live and happy will be  thy days    The amazement of all a   i ound and most of the affrighted cook   cannot bedesenbed  but such was the   effect that the knife was unconsciously  dropped  and Mungo ran off crying  it  was the Devil  and not a Turtle   The scene was ludicrous in the extreme    and required all the persuasion of

publications 1 as  long been admitted as affording facilities  n the diffusion of knowledge  which could  not be obtained in any other way  By their  means subjects of an interesting nature  gain a  more general circulation  discussions may Is  conducted in a connected series of papers   and from the low price at which they are af  forded  instruction is rendered accessible to  all    In tl e various departments of science  of  politics  and of literature  it is believed there  i no deficiency  even in our own country  se   yeval works which will compare with the  most respectable in Europe  are published   and liberally supported  Tbe scarceness of  religious works  the difficulty of maintaining  them  and their consequent discontinuance   would seem to imply that while there is suf  ficient taste for the support of what is of mi  nor importancethere is a want of that pious  interest  whi h must give perpetuity to works  of a serious cast  Y  lie fate of similar under  takings ought perhaps to serve as a warning  to others  yet such is the importance of reli  gious knowledge  such are the unspeakable  advantages which may result from labours of  this kind  that the present editors feel them  selves bound to make an effort  If they fail  they will have the consolation to know that  they have done their duty  If they suc  ceed it will afford them much satisfaction   to have been instrumental in extending the  knowledge of the religion of Christ    It will be considered an object of primary  importance  in conducting the proposed paper  o procure such materials as may tend to pro  mote pure undefiled religiom As the work  is undertaken with a particular view to ad  vance the cause of Christianity in Pennsylva  nia  every thing which might disturb the in  teresting harmony  which has hitherto pre  vailed throughout otir communion will he care  fully avoided  and such essays or pieces only   will be circulated as have an immediate ten  dency to explain and enforce the great doc  trines of salvation  The views of the editors   they believe to fee in unison with what is  taught in the services  offices  and articles of  the church to which they belong  and em  braced by a very large portion of their fa  thers  and brethren in the ministry  While  enforcing that which they believe to be ac  cording to truth  they will religiously avoid  those trifling controversies about matters of  indifference  which can do no goodand  Which too often give the enemies of the cross  of Christ  an opportunity to charge upon our  holy religion  that which only can arise from  an abuse of its liberty    The editors would feel less confidence in  ursuing their present undertaking  if they  had to rely entirely upon their own resources   They are happ  to say  that they have the pro  mise of assistance from the Right Rev  Bishop  White  the Rev  Dr  Beasley  and others  whose names they are not at liberty men  tion  Though looking more immediately to  tlie Rev  gentlemen just mentioned  who  interestedin the particular objects of tbe work   the editors nevertheless solicit  and entreat the   clergy and laity who feel interested in pro  moting the cause of the Redeemer  to assist  them in their labours    The substance of each paper will be en   braced under the following heads   1   Religious communications    2   Reviews of religious  or
