From the JVntional Journal. 
Reflections upon the state of America, with reference to 
Europe, and other parts of the world. 

(bt a native of cdsco.) 

[Translated from the S[)am^hinto the English Language.] 

England, always intent upon commercial advaotagea. 
has been assiduous to obtain friendship, and form perma 
nent establishments in Central America; while the U- 
nited States has displayed less zeal The vigilance of 
the former, heightened by her possessions in the East 
and West Indies, (and her immense colonies every 
Hhere— Hindostan, other parts of Asia,) and New South 
Wales; her extensive intercourse between those places, 
and Spanish and Portugese America, with her other 
rolonies, China and Europe trades, multiply her means 
of supply I and magnify and enhance her influence She 
therefore, covets American commerce, to employ and 
satisfy her home and foreign population, to increase her 
revenue, and to extend and perpetuate her colonian do 
minion, and maritime domination Great Urilain, one 
of the greatest colonizers, has the merit of diffusing the 
lights of science and philosophy, and of a dissemina 
tion of the theory of civil liberty and government, 
wherever she has openly exercised her sovereignty, and 
ruled; yet, notwithstanding, in the mutability of physi 
cal nature and human sff.virs, she cannot expect to eter 
nize her power, and must look forward to the loss of 
some of her cumbrous colonies Unless, profiting by 
her own experience, that of Spain and Portugal, and 
the advancement of iran and society in knowledge and 
happiness, she should make them cohesive, and cement 
their attachment by qualifled liberty, in an incorpora- 
tion with the parent state, as infegr d parts of her em 
pire; allowing the inhabitants a free, fair, and full rep- 
resentation in the legislature and national councils, by 
representatives chosen by, and fmm among the repre- 
sented themselves; or, actuated by nobler sentiments, 
and preferring a more lofty ambition, she should choose 
to give the world a splendid and proud exannple of mag- 
nanimity and ju'tice, worthy of the present age, and 
the imitations of all future nations and time, in a volun 
tary and dignified emancipation of her foreign depen 
dencies and territories Dismemberments, and sever 
ances of dependencies from parent states, are natural 
Without some special act of grace, H ndostan, and 
some other of the Herculean colonies of England, like 
those of Spain and Portugal, may assume their inde- 
pendence— like those stales, she may find that her 
limbs, too pondrous and mu cular for her body to wield 
and nurture, will fill olf or free themselves; and, driv 
en, in part from her restrictive system, by the coercive 
European continental policy of the Holy .Alliance, she 
must allow her ancient ally. Inland, [the land of hos- 
pit lity, genius, nnd heroism ] free respiration, or risk 
of falling into derangement and debility herself 

It is not perceived that a voluntary surrender of sove- 
reignty over colonies by the parent states should shock 
public seuiibility, or be incompatible with national wcl 
fare; fur, grown to matur.ty, they cannot be retained; 
and, independent, may become auxiliaries. 

In arms, or pacific, Europe cultivates the arts, re- 
quires the precious metals and productions of America 
and, manufacturing more than she can use, looks to the 
Western world for consumers of the surplus Ameri- 
ca, confirmed in her independence, having all the raw- 
materials, with every species nd qusli'y of productions 
and the precious metals, can either grow, raise, and 
vend her staple*, and purchase in a fore gn market; or 
employ part of h r population in manufacturing Amer 
ica is, consequently in fact, most independent; nd 
E.urope gains more by .\merica, than America gains by 
E.urope. For a long series of years, Europe was the 
Ac.'den.y and woik'hop of America. Circumstances 
have changed; and \merica can enlighten, and work 
for herself Englaml sees this with emotion; and fully 
sensible of the latent ability of America, is intensely 
anxious to prolong her dependence on European supply 
America having all the means of culture extraction, 
coinage, exchange, and manufacturii g. of cumulative 
knowledge, wealth and strength, it is optional with her 
to which she shall most direct her attention and ener 
gies, and will depend upon calculation predicated up 
on her convenience, or irilerest, or both, governed by 
judgment and principle. The manufacturing countries 
of Europe, struggling to conipete with each other, in 
American supply, are solicitous to introduce new tastes 
and fashiona. in rapid succession, to imitate her domes 
tic manufactures, and to hasten the march of extrava 
gance, to mnluply real, and to create artilieial wants. 
that they may be necessary to their satisfactum. Preuia 
luie changes, and adoption of habits, m.ay induce a rie 
viation from repubhuan simplicity and puriiy of man 
ners, and frugality in economy, ivhich, wilti a siibi titu- 
liuii of some Euio[)cJn customs or piinciples, sii .tract 
from independrnce. and are adverse to the pulilic and 
private felicity of .\inerica. 

England, more engaged in uianuficturing and com- 
merce, more dependent upon an active and profitable 
employ meiit cf tier dense population, (which is the 
chief source cl her wealth.) than any country of Eu 
rope, circuiosuilied by policy and modifications of trade, 
in the introduction of her home and foreian fatiiics, and 
productions upon the Continent of Euii'pe, finds iii A 
mcrica, a couiilerh ilance of Eurnpeao con. petition . 

Indepeiiil.iit jimeriia opens a vast trade, and mourner 
able avenues to nclr s [Irom winch the most ol the Eu- 
ropean nations were partially deb, rred. or wholly ex 
cloited, by the former rulers i f Dependent America, J 
and by cooHuu.iog her icdiind.mt manufactures and pro. 
ductions, the joint produce of her labor, enterprise, 
arts, ingenuity, and capit.d, indirectly employs and pays 
a large portion of her i x-essively crowded population, 
a part of wliicb would, otherwise, be idle, necessitous, 
and turbulent; and nhiob. by parity of reasoniog, gUar 



antiea her internal tranquility and comfort, and augments 
her financies, her force, and her grandeur. As the po- 
litical system of England is partly financial, and she 
vends more to America than all the rest of Europe to 
getber, she will be cautious not to offend so good a cus 
tomer. True policy prompts her and Europe to peace 
and amity with America, aa it does to close cordial 
friendship with each other, between all the independent 
•American iStates, that they (the latter ) may occasion 
ally combine for security, or act simultaneously to repel 
intrusion, avenge injury or insult, defend and maintain 
rights, increase in national greatness and glory; and, 
by a show of strength, remove the motive with the im 
possibility of impunity, and prevent aggression. 

By national glory, is not meant that vain, false, glory 
of force, conquest, and domination, arising from the 
creation of fleets and armies, and their destruction, 
which always give great power to rulers, is often fatal 
to liberty, and terminates in the degradation, vilification, 
and misery of the human race; but that which consists 
in knowledge, rational, defined, or regulated liberty, and 
national virtue and happiness. 

England, Spain, Portugal and France, taught by 
lear experience, no longer indulging visionary medita 
lions of re-subjugating America, or any part of it, but 
awakening from such delusive dreams, will duly esti- 
uiate her: And, she, in the concatination of events, 
may be as necessary to Europe, at least to the maritime, 
if to no other powers, or to some of them, as the dif- 
ferent American States are to each other, by enabling 
them, in case of their collision, and her rights are affect 
ed, to maintain an equal contest; or, in a desperate 
conflict, decide the issue, by over matching outrage and 
violence; but. above all by acting io a neutral impartial, 
equitable character of umpire, preserve or restore 
peace; and prevent the weaker party from falling a sac- 
rifice to the stronger, in war. 

The expuhion of (be Turks from Europe; — the en- 
tire conquest of Africa and Asia, by Europe, is more 
practicable than a re-colonization of any part of inde 
pendent America, and more worthy of European ambi 
tion 

A civilized population of more than thirty- five mil- 
lions of Americans, and innumerable aborigines,, under 
free governments, the spirit of which pervades and cir 
culates through the whole, inhabiting a remote continent, 
ten thousand miles long, and three thousand wide, 
stretching from the Antarctic to the Arctic circles, full 
of resource and stamina, is uncoloni'able und unconquer- 
able. 

American attractions inviting to eryiigration, the ne 
cessities of Europe are more like to drive a large por- 
tion of her population to America as friends, than ene 
mies, in the certainty of freedom, and assurance of com 
pelency and ease with a moderate share of industry and 
prudence. 

Hostile armies and fleets, if not captured or lost on 
the ocean, would be abandoned by desertion, destroyed 
by starvation and climate, or overwhelmed by the arm 
ed inhabitants. 

Tyrannical, disgraced, distracted, prostrate and hap 
less 5?pain, with her wretched, despicable King, cor 
rupt and execrable hierarchy, is so impotent, that her 
war on America is hardly nominal; and, from having 
been offensive, may, ere long become defensive, and 
be carried into her European ports and territories by 
Americans, her late colonists, if she does not hasten to 
do (he only act of signal justice of which she is capa 
ble, or has the power, in a formal and solemn renuncia- 
ion of her pretentions to sovereignty in the western 
hemisphere. 

What has Spain or Europe to tempt America? No- 
thing but dependence and chains vassalage and servility 
If to ambition, she proffers honours ! — ./America has won 
laurels and independence: she has h murs and can ere 
ate and obtain them with merit — If couittry — she is the 
mo t beau ifvl and lovely, and will eclipse Europe in 
brilliancy If the fascinations of G Id can charm, she 
esn give a million for one,— "her mountains and vallies 
are Ore. G Id and Silver. If armies, or numbers are 
talked of. America swarms with men If power, she 
governs herself has arms in her hatAs, and returns the 
Spartan answer— CO^^E AND TAKE THEM. 

The past and present condition of America bear no 
closer resemblance to each other, than pain and pleas 
lire, madness and reason, bitter and sweet, deformity 
and beauty, daikness and light, slavery and liberty. All 
that history records, or sages have divined; all that or 
ators have uttered or poets have sung; all that the hap- 
piest and the highest flights of fancy can conceive, is 
infinitely short of the splendour of ulterior destinies 
which await her Her sons, hospitable, generous and 
brave, amiable and intelligent, inspired by patriotic im- 
pulses, act with an effect which carries conviction to 
the minds of their enemies; and, reasoning by intuition 
arrive at demonstration 

Fpain, pampered by pride, arrogant with power, inso 
lent with wealth, and insatiable in avarice, wns a bait to 
cupidity, and is a boon to ambition. Retribution has 
overtaken her, and frnm having been little more than an 
empire, she is little le*s than a colony. Low as she has 
fallen from her once exalted state, humiliated and im 
tiecile as she is, hv coiilining herself to Europe, her pro- 
per s;ihere, where, nature has bestowed upon her. in 
profusion, many choice gifts, although she can never 
r. cover what she had lost, and is to lose, in the New 
World, by arousing her high minded population from 
I'^thargy, and exerting their energies, she may yet, like 
Phoenix, rise from her ashes, and be independent and 
great in the Old. 

Whether the Holy Alliance will generate discontent 
and political convulsions in Europe; the spirit of the 
people be broken hy the aggrandizement and arbitrary 
mle of the few over many, whether dictation and op- 
pression is to enervate and abase, or rouse nations to 
resistance and renovation; whether freedom is to be e- 
chpsed by force, invites to reflection, and will lead to 
difference of opinion, aa the intellectual vision is illumi 
ned by reason, and the vivifying effects of an indepen- 
dent spirit, obscured by prejudice, averted by interest, 
preverled, or awed by power. It is believed that na- 
tions will not be crushed by despots; that they will nei 
ther be buried under the wreck of empires uor thrones, 
nor plunge into anarchy; but, instructed by intelligence 
and example, feeling and suffering, learn to govern 
themselves; that authority and power shall be delegated 



only by the people, (the only genuine and legitimate 
source from whence it can emanate for their good,) re 
called wher. abused and it degenerates into evil; that 
governmenti, to be respectable, secure and durable 
whatever their form, or wherever (hey are, must be res 
ponsible and firm, yet mild and just: and that pAysica/ 
power, uAependent of'' moral principles, equity and naliiAi- 
al sentiments, can neither secure a state of peace, nor na- 
tional contentment. 



From the Missouri Advocate . 
New route to the Pacific Ocean, discovered by Gen 

William H. AsHey, during bis late Expedition to the 

Rockey Mountans. 

The General Govern'ment having under consideration 
the propriety of estiElisbment a military post at some 
point within our teritorial limits, on the coast of the 
Pacific, the present is, perhaps, the most appropriate 
time to communicate any information, which may in the 
least (end to facilitate the consummation of a measure, 
in our opinion, of so much national importance. 

Heretofore, those greit barriers of nature, the Rocky 
Mountains, have been called op in judgment against the 
practicability of establishing a communication between 
this point and the Pacific ocean. But the great Author 
of Nature, in bis wisdom, has prepared, and individual 
enterprise discovered, that so “broad and easy is the 
way” that thousands may travel it in safety, without 
meeting with any obstruction deserving the name of a 
mountain. 

The route proposed, after leaving St. Louis and pas- 
sing genr.-raliy on th« North aide of the Missouri River, 
strikes the river Platte a short distance above its juncliod 
with the Missouri; then pursues the waters of the Platte 
to (heir sources and, in continuation, crosses the head 
waters of what Gen. Ashley believes to be the Rio Co 
lorai)o of the West, and strikes, for the first time, a 
rid'ge, cr single connecting chain of mountains, running 
fr.om n*rth to south. 1 bis, however, presents no difti 
cully, IS a wide gap is found apparently prepared for (he 
purpose ofa passage. After passing this gap the route 
propoied falls directly on a river, called by Gen. Ashley, 
(he Bienaventura, and runs with that river to the Pa 
cific Ocean. 

The face of the country, in the general, is a continua 
tion of high, rugged, and barren mountains, the summits 
of which are either timbered with pine, quakingasp, or 
cedar; in fact, almost entirely destitute of vegetation.— 
Other parts are hilly and undulating— and the valleys 
and (able lands, (except on the borders of the water- 
courses, which are more or less timbered with cotton 
wood and willows,) are destitute of wood; but this in- 
dispensable article is substituted by an herb called by 
the hunters, wild sage, which grows from one to five feet 
high, and is found in great abundance in most parts of 
the country. 

Soil.- The sterility of the country, generally, is al 
most incredible. That part of it, however, bounded by 
the three principal ranges of mountains, and watered by 
the sources of the supposed Buenaventura, is less ste.r- 
ile; yet the proportion of arable land, even within those 
limits, is comparatively small; and no district of the 
country visited by General Ashley, or of which be oh 
tained satisfactory information, offers inducements to 
civilized people, sufficient to justify an expectation of 
permanent settlements. 

RteerJ — The river tisited by Gen Ashley, & which 
be believes to be the Rio Colorado of the West, is, at 
about fifty miles from its most northern source, eighty 
yards wide. At this point. General A. embaiked and 
descended the riyer, which gradually increased in width 
to 180 yards. In passing through the mountains, the 
channel is contracted to fifty or sixty yards, and so much 
obstructed by rocks as to make its descent extremely 
dangerous, and its ascent impracticable. After de- 
cending this river about 400 miles, General A. shaped 
bis course northwardly, and fell upon what he supposed 
to be the sources of the Buenaventura; and represents 
those branches as bold streams, from 20 to 50 yards 
wide, forming a Junction a few miles below where be 
crossed them, and (hen empties into a large lake, (call- 
ed the Grand Lake,) represented by the Indians as be- 
ing 40 or 50 miles wide, and 60 or 70 miles long 'I'his 
information is strengthened by that of the white hunters, 
who have explored parts of the Lake. The Indians re- 
present, (bat at the extreme west end of this Lake, a 
large river flows out, and runs in a westwardly direc- 
tion. 

Gen. A. when on those waters, at first thought it| 
probable they were the sources of the Multnomah — but 
the account given by (he Indians, supported by the o- 
pinion of some men belonging to the Hudson Bay Com 
pany, confirms him in the belief that they are the head 
waters of the river, represented as the Beunaveritura — 
To (he north and northwest from Grand Lake, (be coun- 
try is represented as abounding in Salt 

The Indians, west of the mountains, are remarkably 
well disposed towards the citizens of the United States; 
the Eutaws and Flat beads are particularly so, and ex- 
press a great wish that the Americans should visit them 
frequently. 

Political . — We have been politely favored with the 
perusal of a letter from a member of the Legislature of 
the stale of Georgia, to bis friend in this country; by 
which we learn, that party spirit h»s efi'ected an entire 
change in the affairs of that state— that, although 'I' oup 
was elected, all those in office friendly to his election, 
were removed, and their places filled by the friends of 
Clark —Jtfusourt Advocate. 



he IJepartmenl, to our Indim Agents, and to (he Su- 
Ipenntendents of (he Schools among the Indians, to col- 
le(jt and transmit to Mr Conant, whatever niighl te 
uiihin their reach, of such materials. But I consider 
a great ditliculty to lie in the way of a successful n-sult. 
'The interpreters are generally illiterate, and are not 
^qualified to preserve eiiher the heauty or strength cf the 
metaphors which no doubt abound in v*balever an In- 
dian utters. I he language of metaphor is the langnaga 
juf man in his uncultivated state; and his mountains, and 
rivers, and forests, and, to bis eye, the earth and the 
sky, with their quakes, and their lightnings, are all full 
of mystery, which crei.te a darkness well fitted for the 
workings of the imagination and fertile in wonders 
Much sublimity, no doubt, is lost, for the want of prop- 
er channels for its passage to us; and with every wish 
that it could he preserved, yet I confess that I have my 
doubts as to our being able to realize an object so de- 
sirable. 

It will he known. I pre.sume, in (he course of another 
year, what success has attended the inquiries making by 
Mr Conant, from which we can better Judge of the 
hope ofsuecess for the future, and of the means neces- 
sary to its attainment.

From the Olive Branch. 

The following letter, addressed to a citizen of this 
place, does honor to the head and heart of (he author: 
Department of ff’ar 
February 16, I.S26 

“Sir: I have received your letter of the .SJ inst. on 
the interesting subject of rescuing from oblivion, speri 
mens of Indian poetry and Eloquence. Posterity will 
doubtless feel a deep interest in this subject; and err 
tainly no time is to be lost in providing, for future gen

C. & D 

Have you ever heard Mr. McDuffie of S. Carolina 
speak } 

^ es— and I have no desire, ever to hear him again. 

Why.? 

'1 hough a man of unquestionable sense, be is an ex- 
ceedingly disagreeable speaker: His manner whilst it 

violates all the rules of Tully and Quintilian, has not 
originality enough to atone for its outrageous faults- 
You feel in great pain for the man, all the time he is 
speaking — At one moment you think the bursting of a 
blood vessel roust be (he necessary consequence of such 
excessive straining and heaving — next, you find yourself 
catching your breath, as we do when we are perchance 
caught in the same room at a tavern, with that most hor- 
rible of all bears, a soorer— whom , all (be tunes you can 
whistle, can neither induce to wake or to turn over.— 
Ibis sensation is caused, by the unusually long pause* 
between the sentences. Knowing the fine sense of the 
Orator; seeing that he is master of his subject, and flu- 
ent enough in the enunciation of a particular sentence 
— you naturally conclude, that it is not words he is wait- 
ing for, bnt more wind, that he may halloo louder this 
sentence, than he did before. When at last he utters, 
the tones are so loud and angry, that you ask youself, 
why in the name of Heaven, does the gentleman speak 
or rather bawl so loud.^ What is thye in an amend- 
ment to the constitution to make him angry? But 
whether speaking or pausing, it seems to be all the same 
with his right hand and arm. They are going up and 
down with ceaseless and vehement activity — now Lis 
fist is suspended over bis head — then it lights with in- 
credible violence on his desk. If your fears bad jiot al- 
ready been expended in solicitude for the blood vessels, 
they would be veiy much awakened for the knuckles— 
and in (ruth, these last are said to be frequently skinned 
in these unequal contests. Whilst the right arm is thus 
employed, the left has its full share of duty — This is to 
wield the handkerchief, for by this time, the sweat is 
gushing from every pore. This handkerch'cf has not a 
moment of quiet — during the w hole speech it is travel- 
ling — first from the pocket to the face, then to the table, 
then back to the pocket and out again, before, you can 
possibly suppose it wanted. I have understood that two 
are sometimes employed The whole attitude cf the 
speaker; look, tone and gesture, are any ihing but per- 
suasive— his object seems to be to drive, rather than 
convince or persuade — and while listening to him, I 
have almost thought that if a member of Congress, I 
would vote against him, just to show I would not be 
driven These perhaps are the faults of youth and 
early bad taste, and may in time be surmouoted-.. 
talents so highly promising, deserve a more engaging 
manner —Ri'c/imom/ ffliig.

Under date of February 11th, it is stated tlwt an A

ceding Tuesday, near the Point of Santiago. She ivas 
[seen afterwards going down the river, and it was sup“

A French frigate was near the Chica Bank on the 7th

On the 14th February, t)ie Brazilian squad-on was 
not in sight of Buenos Ayres. It was reported that the 
Brazilian post at the Island of Martin Garcia, nouth of 
the Uruguay, had been strengthened by fresh troops. 

A letter from Monte Video, under date of February 
4, announces the arrival there of 400 ragged Brazilian 
soldiers, many of whom were fishermen from St. Cats 
lina, who had been brought away by force General 
r.ecor had received orders to give up his command 
to General Magesse; and to return to Rio This or- 
der was complied with in the presence of about 2000 
soldiers. The letter says, that a revolution must tak 
place at Montevideo, if General Magesse exercises his 
authority with too much rigor The whole Brazilian 
force in Monte V’ideo amounts to about 3500 men.

By the FTcnch brig Faune, from Monte Video, we 
learn that the Brazilians sustained considerable loss in 
the late action— particulaily the Liberal, which was 
much cut up. It appears that what admiral Lobes most 
regretted was the lose of the commander of the brig 
“29th August.” 

Another letter from Monte Video, under the dale of 
Feb. II, says; — “The d»y before yesterday there was 
an action at the foot of the mountain, in sight of tins 
town. The Brazilians had 28 killed and 18 wounded

oppoilnnily of withdrawing her troops from ?pa’;D 
[hear, hear!].” 

On the same day, a member having made some re- 
marks on the proEcrutiun of the slave trade by France 
and other countries, Mr Canning leplod thus: 

“What the liunur.ihlc gentleinan liad said regarding 
the intercourse with the h’rcneh government, whs not 
quite correct; for although, some time since, much atten- 
tion had not been paid by France to the representation 
of (Jreat lliitain, lately the French Ministry had evin 
ced a more sincere disposition to carry into effect its re 
peated f rofessions and assurances. One practical test 
he had had the satisfaction of receiving a fortnight ago; 

! intelligence had been received that tlie reiterated infor 
tmation conveyed to the French government, regarding 
the fitting out of slave ships at Nantes, had at length as- 
sumed a shape so irrcTragahle, as to have led to the seiz- 
ure of one vessel [hear, hear hear!]. He did not assert, 
(hat one instan'eo proved much; but as it was the first, 

It ought to be accepted as a promise for the future. By 
dint of indefHligab!c*exeriioD8, the French government 
had been obliged to adopt this course, and it was hoped 
that it would be followed up in future. He might l».ke 
this opportunity of mentioning, with equal satisfaction, 
that Ministers had at length obtained from the Spanish 
Govornment, an order to the Governor of Cuba, and if 
it were executed, it would leave nothing more to be de 
sired All he could say, at present, was, that such - n 
order had been obtained, though not without as n,ucb 
importunity, and as great exertions, as bad been found 
necessary with the French government. If executed, 
he repeated it would put a complete end to the shve 
trade, as far as Spain was concerned in it.” 

It is scarcely possible, in so few words, better to de 
setihe the hiibble-roaking tiroes on the other side of the 
water than has been done in Parliament, as follows; 

Mr. Secretary Canning commerced with disclaiming 
ail design of imputing blame to the country bankers. 
It was the nature of the system that made them liable to 
b!amc. The great cause ot the country’s distress was 
extravagant spec ilations. 'I'hey had been such as! 
could not be witnessed without astonishment. They! 
fixed the public gaze, and excited the public rvidity, so!

yesterday, fubmiUed a luuiion to restore to Ihe Senile 
tlie appoiotment of its Standing Committees, ar.d to 
(he Secretary of the Senate, the correction and revision 
of Ihe Journal. Mr R comn'pnced with remarking, 
that nothing hut an imperious sense of duty, led him to 
impose the burden on himself, and (hat it had lain on 
his mind an onerous Ipad, day after day and night after 
night. It was in consequence of a fact, as notorious as 
it was disgusting, that the Vice Presidency had been 
converted into a mere sinecure, and that the President 
pro tempore had been compelled to discharge the whole 
of the duties, while the incumbent had received the sal- 
ary— And it was the confidence of Ihe Senate in the 
late Mr. Gaillard, both as a member and as a presiding 
officer, that induced this body to vest in him (he ap- 
pointment of Committees, and (he supervision of the 
Journal. In relation to the Journal, Mr li. stated it 
was owing to the incorapetency of the late Secretary 
of the Senate, from whatever cause it proceeded, that 
the change was made, and having a President pro tem- 
pore who discharged his duties, a motion was made to 
change the rule, which prevailed Mr. R then went 
into the history of a resolution, which he bad offered, 
in secret session, which had not been allowed to remain 
on the Journal, and which, when the Executive Jour- 
nal was published, not being in it, gave him as much 
pain, as any one event in (he course of his political hfe. 
'This resolution was subsequently entered on the Jour- 
nal, by the unanimous consent of the Senate. 

Mr. R then proceeded in his usual style to denounce 
those who acted with him, and those who did not act 
with him He declared that he had never been taken 
into the service of any of the present parties — (hat 
there were not four men in the Senate who thought suf- 
ficiently alike to carry on any system of opposi tion t 
Ihe administration— and since every body bad beard o

make clean work; ihcugb in relation to this gentleman 
there were differences of opinion, that placed them as 
impassably from each other, as Dives and Lazarus were, 
by the vast gulph which lay between them. He pro- 
nounced the administration incompetent and uofaitbful; 
though, said he, the lime is gone by when I could speak 
harshly of them-, and went on to deny that he was eiiner 
insane, or wholly under (he influence of bis passions. 
The battle of \\ u erloo bad been fought, and the peo- 
ple had lost It, and unless they could shake ofl' the chains 
of servitude, and arouse to the defence of their rights, 
their 1 berties were furerer gone. In the course of bis 
animadversions, the reporters did not escape, much less 
the papers, which he stfirmed the adiuinistratiuu bad 
bought up, and had prostituted to a base and servile 
support of their cause. 



Senor Hivadavia h.is been elected President of the

'Die following extract I'rom a speech delivered by 
■Mr. Baring in tiie British Parliament, shews the dan- 
gerous crisis wliicli that country has recently passed, 
and fully demonstrates the evil etTecls of a paper cur 
eiicy. Let us profit by tlie instruc tive example. 

Mr. Alexander Baring made (he following remarks 
in the Britisli House of Commens, in February. 

“If Ihe run on the London Bankers had continued 48 
hours longer, and if Ihe Bank of England had not c'-me 
forward as it did, the whole country would have been 
thrown iuto confusion, the whole money system entirely 
destroyed, and such a violent decline in pi ices effected 
as would have involved tr erebants, manufacturers and 
landed gentlemen, in one rommon ruin” 



On Ihe 8lh iilt Mr. Alexander Baring expressed 
himself, in the Brit-isli House of Comwons, in the fol 
lowing terms; 

“In spc iking of (lie revival of confiderce, he begged 
to be understood as alluding to London alone; hut lhe\ 
should not forget that the distress hsd been even great 
er in the manufacturing towns of llie country and that 
it would be too much to assert, that any change for (he 
belter could have resulted from measures in the benefits 
of which they had not yet even tin e to participate 
'' ben they heard of improvement, then it would be 
indeed, lime for exultation 'The wound which the 
country had received, was : very deep and serious one; 
and whoever fancied that the injury inflicted, not only 
upon the commerce and credit of Ihe country, but up 
un Ihe capital which formed the means of employing its 
industry and manufactures, was slight or trivial, and to 
be healed upon the instant, would find themselves griev- 
ously mi.steken [hear!].’’ 

In the British House of Commmons, on the 10th ult 

“Sir Robert Wilson, seeing Ihe right hon. the Secre- 
tary for Foreign Affairs in his place, begged to ask 
"heiher he could give the House r.ny information rela 
live to I'e evacuation of Spain by Ihe French? — When 
a question similar to Ih’s was asked last year, the right 
hon. gentleman answered, that Ihe evacuation of Spain 
hv the French would feke place (as he understood) 
sooner than the evacuation of Naples by Austria. He 
hoped therefore that the promise of the right hon. gen- 
lleinan would be noAV made good. 

‘Mr. Secretary Canning said he was willing to an- 
swer the question as directly as pos3ihle, but Ihe House 
muist perceive (he difficulty of doing so. 'There was 
one thing, however, of wh.ich he could assure his hon 
friend, nari.ely, that the French were Ihenisclves most 
anxious to withdraw their troops from Sfrain. 'The re- 
moval of these, troops had hitherto been retarded by 
useless and mischievous, but ineffective attacks upon 
the corislitutrd authorities; hut he repeated, that 
France was mevt anxious to avail herself of Ihe fits!

PERTH MEhTING 

Threatened rebellion in defence oftnuill notes— On 
Tuesday, a meeting of the nohlemen, fieeholders, justi 
ces of the peace, and commissioners cf supply, was held 
in the county hall, pursuant to advertisement, for the 
purpose of “taking into consideration the m;earure8 
which are understood to he in contemplation, regarding 
the banking estaMislimcnts in Scotland” 'The Right 
Hon the Earl of Kinnoul in the chair. 

The meeting was thinly attended, and inconsequence 
of the cordial unanimity of all present, little debate or 
discussion rnsued Sir Alexander Muir Mackenzie, 
opened the (iroceedings, and, as usual, acted as chief 
speaker. He concluded by moving a set of resolutions. 
The noble chairman seconded the rtsolutions, and they 
were adopted urm. coir. 

Mr Miller said, be had only to suggest, that it might 
give weight to the prayer of Ihe petition, to add the fol- 
low ing clause “and which, by the articles of union, your 
petitioners are entitled to claim.” 

Sir A. M. Mackenzie said, that in preparing the pc 
tilioii, he might have embodied such a clause. Lad be 
thought matters were* arrived at such a pass as to re 
quire it; hut the fact was that although it was well un- 
derstood the obnoxious measure was in contemplation, 
still there was not as yet any hill or measure actually in

Colonel Benton, of the Senate of the United States, 
has published, in the National Intelligencer, bis speech 
against the Panama Mission, and prefixed to it an ac- 
count of certain grand discoveries he has Uiade, of fa- 
tal inaccuracy in parts of (he Eoglish translations of 
the treaties between (be Spanish American states, which 
were submitted to the Senate. Having procured Irunt 
New York “a copy of one of the treaties in the or.gi- 
nai language,” Ihe Spanish, he found that the word 
asamblea Lad been rendered Congress instead of assem- 
bly, the words asamblea jcncrul, gencial Congress, in- 
stead of general (usembty, ti.e pnra^e jutz arbitro, arbi- 
trator, instead ol judge-arbitrator. Aloreover, tnc gov-

sembled, composed of pienipoleuiiaricb trom the Amer-

writes “'I'o ceu.ent (he bonds of future union between

Benton will have it thus— “In order to draw closer Vie 
chains wliich ought to unite both states in future, bee.’ ! 

Every reader who has attended to the nature of the 
mam question,— to say nothing of such as understand 
ihe Spanish — must smile at the emphatic annuuciaitoa 
of sucli discoveries, and scarcely he able to think (he

The Jacobins of Fayette are greatly perplexed to! 
form a ticket. Satisfied that no avowed member of| 
tbcir parly can be elected, they have resorted to the' 
iiiiist insidious means to seduce from the constitutional' 
party several of its members, whom they supposed 
possessed sutlicient indiience to ensure success. We 
arc iuforined that direct overtures have been made to 
Mr. I’ayiie and Mr. 'J'rue. and that great efforts have 
been made to alienate them from tlicir political f; lends, 
by persuading them that they have been slighted by not 
being brought forward as candidates.' 'I’be sterling 
integrity of these gentlemen lias, however, baffled all 
tliese artifices, and the Jacobins arc left to bunt for 
( tlicr individuals more ambitious and more credulous. 
AVben the candidates who are now before the public 
were aiinniinccd, it was distinctly understood that 
neither Mr. Payne nor Mr. True wislicd to be re-elect- 



ed. Of course they can feel no mortificatiun in con- 
sequence of the imputed neglect and ingratitude of any of those Slates or Territories; to settle tlie boon 



[The Committee appointed by the Lower House of 
Congress, to ascertain at what lime it will we propei 
and expedient for that body to adjourn, have made 
the folliivviiig repoit. It proves conclusively, that the 
session has been spent in idle debates upon questions 
of little interest or importance to the nation, wiiilst 
subjects of the greatest importance have been over- 
looked, or postponed. We become more fully 
convinced every day, that it will be neccss.ary to 
resort to some expedient to arrest tiie mania for 
speechmaking. 'I'he people expect and will require 
sometbiug more from their representatives than empty 
wind and noisy declamations.] — l\.y. IVkig. 

“Your (Jnmmittee find tliat there are yet pending 
before the two branches of llie liegislalure, a large 
mimbi^ of the public and private bills, schedules of the

brought in to authorise the payment of claims against 
the government, your Cumiiiitiee are of opmioii, 
might all to be decided before the rising of Congress. 
The common obligations of integrity between debtor 
and creditor, demand this at oiir bands asa duly whici 
we may not refuse to perform. Many of tiie public 
bilLs press even with greater urgency on the attention 
of the House. Among others, your C’oininiltee would 
refer to those which provide for t^o officers & soldiers 
of the Uevolutiuu, not provided for by the existing 
laws. 

"'I’he bill on the snbject of the prisons and penal 
law of Ibis district, is one, in the passage of which, in 
somespajie, the prosperity of the district and tlie hon- 
our of the goveriiu*eut are equally involved. 'I'be pro- 
positions now before the house, and expected to come 
before it, on tliesubjcct of Indian affairs, areof a mag- 
nitude and importance whicii demand the iinmcdiate 
and earnest attention of Congress. The bills, whether 
public or private, wbicli provide for the settlement of 
lands, in the States and Territories, on the Lakes the 
.Mississippi, and the Gulf of Mexico; which propose to 
regulate the process of the Courts of the U. States in 



their party, ami will smile in scorn upon the hypocri- 
tical hlaudishnicnts of these artful iniriguers. 



The protracted and tiresome debate on the Panama 
.VUsion is still continued, and it seems dilliciilt to di-i 
vine when it will terminate. It appears to us to be! 
extremely fortunate for the ailmimstration. that its 
enemies slionld have seized upon this subject ns tbeiri 
rallying point, from wbicli to comniencc tlicir hostile 
operations. We are fully satisfied, that a more pop-i 
ular measure lias never been submitted to the consid- 
'cralioii of (,'ongress, and are utterly astonished at the 
persevering opposition which it has encountered from 
a malignant and disappointed faclion- 

Mr, llaiidolpli, who seems always ready to slioot his 
poisoned arrows at any and every one. tia» bet rayed 
great ingratitude towards the Vice-President, who has 
indulged liiiii, throughout the session, in such an un- 
restrained licence of tongue as was never beford wit- 
nessed ill any deliberative assein'dy. In one of bis 
recent speeclies, be snecringly alluded toMr. Cal-lj 
liouii’s pretensions to the Presidenev, and invoked God| 
to avert so great a calamity as bis election would 
prove. We presume that tins ambitious aspirant will 
now begin to think, that be has indulged .Mr Ran- 
dolph too much in the expression of his splenetic hu- 
mors. and will, probably, I.erfaffercoiiGuc him with- 
in the rules ofdeceiit deliatc, require him to pay more 
respect to the feelings of the other meinhers of the 
^^^uate, and to be more reserved in bis abuse of the 
officers of the administration. “Siicli a cuusummation 
is most devoutly to be wished.” 



Rolli liouaes of Congress nave at length resolved to 
adjourn on the 2'Jd of May, and we may, therefore, 
hope soon to be relieved from those unprofitable and 



(larics of any of lliem; to introduce new regulations 
into the government oflbe territories, to make roads, 
or to give aid to the const'^iiction ofcatials, which may 
aM'ect the agricultural and commercial prosperity oi

public lands, ougli to receive the consideration and 
decision of the House, 'j be bills which contemplate 
the rstablisliment of a Naval School; tlie introduction 
of important alterations in the organization and cslab 
lishinent oftbe Navy, and iusoiiic braticliesof the mil 
ilary service, and wbicli took to important commer- 
cial regulations, onglit to be considered and disposedj

which your Committee forbear more particularly In 
allude, form a great mass of business, which ought li 
receive the delibcralioii and decision ofCongrcss, be- 
lore the close of the present session. Rut, besides 
these, there arc others of greater magnitude, wLicu| 
claim our attention. The establishment of a uuiform| 
system of bankruptcy; the proposition which is expect | 
ed to come before the House to subscribe slock in the 
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, and the piopositioo to! 
send ministers to the Congress at Panama. 

“Many oftlic subjects to which the Committee have

R!icbael Scott is eulogized in the “Lay of the last 
MiiBirel,’’ and still more remarkably in that strange 
and eccentric poem called “Ansler Fair " He is often 
represented as the axis upon which turns the whole sys , 
tem of supernatural machinery, so abundant in the le 
cords of Caledonia The following extract from a let 
ter of Professor Carter, published in the last number of 
the New York Matesman, apprises us of a fact with 
which wt were before unacquainted— 1 

“Uurnt Island seems once to bsve been insulated, and 
a bridge or mound still connects it with (he main. It 
IS a small place, with a solitary old fashioned church ! 
The village's remarkeble for nothing that I could learn,' 
oxcept giving birth to Michael Scott, an ancestor of Sitj 
Walter, who was the Roger Bacon of Scotland. He! 
was a profouna9cholar,and his extraordinary knowledge ; 
to an age of ^norance and superstition, gave him (he 
reputation ofawizzard His magical tricks are cele 
brated in the Lay of the Last Minstrel.'’ 

With regard I) this mysterious personage, the Great 
Unknown, the author of (he Waverly novels. Sir al- 
ter, seems to inherit the properties of his ancestor Mi 
cbael Scott, the g-eal f’oledonian wizzard, in eluding 
with such admirable dexterity as he has done, all enqui 
ry on the subject of the authorship. When he dined 
with the king of England, and his majesty, as if (0 as 
certain (he fact, gave a toast, “to the illustrious un- 
known, (he author of the Waverly novels,” Sir Walter 
taking his glass, drank “to the illustrious unknown 
and said ‘ this compliment will reach him wherever he 
is ” When his botksellers, the publishers of the VVa 
verly novels became bankrupt, by which the descendant 
of Michael Scott suffered so severely, it was then thought 
that no loop hole w m* left for the author of Waverly to 
creep out at; but Sir Walter appears before the coin 
missioners or (riisteeg, and avows himself as pait pro 
priclor of the ^V’^'•verly novels, leaving the question of 
their authorship still untouched. Who after such evi- 
dence can doubt that Sir Walter Scott is the author, 
and a (rue and lineal descendant of ^'icbael, the old. 
wizzard of Caledonia -^Baltimore American, 

We have it from unquestionable authority, that Mr 
Wirt declines the appoinliLent offered him in the Uni 1 
versify of Virginia. j 

From what we learn, we think there is little or noj 
doubt, lb *t the next choice of the visitors will fall upon

Prom the Baltimore Patriot. 
Substance of & celebrated speech made by John 
Randolpb, in tbe 'Senate of tlie United States, on 
Tuesday, March, on introducing a resolution 
relative to South America. 

Says John of Roanoke, 

Who arose as he spoke. 

With his huger particuliarly pointed; 

And wiiose form and complexion. 

And speech in connexion. 

Form a child by the rickets disjointed; — 

I wish information 

From the head of the nation, 

Of the color of tliose we’re to set with, 

Wlien in Panama met, — 

Whetlier red, yellow, or jet, — 

For all colors are there to be met with. 

T'or myself, thought the Squeaker, 

With a grin at the Speaker, 

I’ll have nothing to do with tbe compact; 

For I’m dark enough now, 

Roth in blood and in brow. 

Without a new shade from the contact. 

PFTIIIAS. 



From the Western Carolinian 
On reading the letter which accompanied those 
beautiful lines, of the '‘Boston Bard,” 

“Love's to-night and to-morrow." 

Oh! who, that has a heart to feel. 

Can read, unmoved, that melting talc. 

That soul-felt, sorrowing appeal. 

Nor lot of Boston's Bard bewail! 

Poor child of genius, son of song, 

May’st thou in vain ne’er ask relief; 

Hard are the hearts that wrought thee wrong, 

Or would’sl not mitigate thy griet. 

O ye, who bask in fortune’s ray. 

Let not ill vain the minstrel crave 
A boon, to meliorate decay. 

And smooth his passage to the grave. 

Vicegerents of indulgent heaven. 

Almoners of power Divine— 

Haste to succour the heart-riven. 

The Prostrate bard at sorrow’s shrine. 

With hope once more his path illume, 

J!re Fate’s stern hat seals his doom; — 

Kre mute that harp whose thrilling tune 
Proclaims tbe gift Appllo’s own; 

Oh haste — and pity’s boon bestow, 

Ere fell disease hath laid him. low; 

Ere, heedless of your late regard. 

Dust has inured the “Boston Bard.”

YOUTHFUL DAYS. 

’Tis sweet to recall the bright days of our youth. 

And revel in fanciful joys that were theirs; 

To muse on life’s nuiruing. when, artless as truth. 

Our bosoms knew not'the corrosion of cares: 

To strew on tbe tomb of the years tliat have fled, 

'I’he flowers that bloom but in iiieniory’s wild. 

And mourn o’er the hopes that are withered and dead, 
But then in their youth and their loveliness smil’d 

They steal o’er tbe soul in its sweet pensive hours. 
And round us the shadows of other days fling, 

While strains softly breathe from their eglantine bow 
ere, 

“Like music of harps on the gale of the spring.” 

Not void of a source of delight is the mind, 

'I’hongh a desert, where rankles the weed and the 
thorn , 

While the memory deep. in the heart is inshrin’d 
Of the joys whose early decay it must mourn. 

And if there’s an hour more propitious and blest, 

’Tis that when its magical pencil pourtrays 
The scenes of our cbildbood, and wakes in the breast 
A sigh for our halcyon, brief youthful days.

From the Missouri Advocate. 
Indian Murders. — We are informed by a gentleman 
who arrived here on board the steano boat Mexico, on 
the 8th instant, from Prairie du ( hien, that, on Ihe 22d 
March, about nine aiiles above Fort Crawford, Mr. 
Mifodjliis wife and three children, were murdered by a 
parly of Indians, supposed Ihe Winebagoes. Not sat- 
isfied with the lives of (be unfortunate victims, they 
burnt the camp with part of the dead, and committed 
on the body of tbe murdered female, who was in a 
state of pregnancy, deeds of savage bHrbarily, too 
shocking to he relaled. Mr. .M. it is believed, made a 
manly defence, as two of Ibe, savages were buried the 
next morning after the occurrence, supposed to have 
died of their wounds. 

The civil authorities, we hear, with much credit to 
themselves, and (hat promptitude which (he occasion 
required, immediately apprehended twenty four of the 
offenders, and, upon examination, discharged twelve and 
retained I Wflve for further trial. So tar, so good. But, 
will justice be done.^ if convicted, will the murderers 
be executed? or, according to former precedent, will 
their Great Father, thv. President, pardon the hor 
rid crime, and ri turn them to the arms of their savage 
companions, at liberty to repeat the bloody deed The 
trial before our civil authorities-, the condemnation and 
pardon of a guilty savage, i.«, in our opinion, a most 
shall. eful mockery of justice, and evidently founded in 
a iiiost n ist-dken notion of Ihe Indian character; They 
ridicule and laugh at the formnlitiea of a (rial— and a 
pardon, (riumphantly attiibule to fear 

Our trade to Mexico — On the 9th insl. Mr. A. S. 
Clopton, a citizen of this place, departed with two wag- 
ons and a large amr.unt of merchandize, intended to ex- 
change with our Mexican neighbors for mules, furs and 
specie. Mr C, will fall in with a much larger party, 
now preparing for Ihe same market, in the vicinity of 
Franklin, from which point they will speedily depart, 
and the little adventure will probably be hailed at Santa 
Fe, as the first arrival of new gi.ods Some of this 
parly, we are informed, have determined to push their 
fortune to Chihuahua Durango, and several other prin- 
cipal points in that country; by which, we indulge the 
fond hope, they will be richly rewarded for their enter- 
prize. 

Small as this trade may appear in a national point of 
view, if i.s of gr^at imporlanee to Missouri. Many of 
our citizens can give evidence of its advaiitsges— many| 
have enjoyed its fruits, without knowing from whence! 
it came; and we are gratified to find, that this liltlej 
trade cont.nues to force its way through Ibe dangers of 
the wilderne'^s. and is even wil'icg to contend with the 
fi.imer enibarra: -ing and oppressive duties. From this 
last arid most prominent embarrassment we hope, bowev- 
e.r the traders will he relieved; as our .Minister, Mr. 
Pomoetf, has probably before this, concluded a treaty 
with the .Mexic:in government, by which, all duties will 
be regulated, ami our commerce, no doubt, be placed 
ttpofl tbe most favorable grounds.

TROPO.SALS 

For Publishing by Subscription, 

'VUe Syiooekos 

henry' CLAY, 

In the Congress of tbe United Slates, from 1810 to 
1824, inclusive. 

FEW individuals in our country have performed a 
more important part in its political relations, or at- 
tracted more universal attention tlian ilenry ( lay. 
For filteen years be bas filled the most conspicuous 
stations in tbe gift of his country, and tbe history ol 
bis public career is essentially associated with that o. 
tbe nation. 'To birn, more Ibaii to any other iiidivid- 
al now living, may be attributed that system of poli- 
cy which bassecured our present prosperity, so great- 
ly exalted our character, and so extensively ditruscd 
our reputation. 'To bis Sjieechcs in Congress we may 
look as tbe sources of the most iiitlueutiul and beneli 
cial acts of our Federal Government for several years 
past, — acts wiiicti have laid the foundations of the 
glory and prosperity of bis country, and wbicb have 
reared an iinperisbable monument to tbe inagiianimi 
ty of bis principles, tlic vigor of bis intellect, tbe ac- 
curacy of bis judgmeut, and the splendour of bis gen- 
ius. 

It is greatly to be deplored, that no memorials of 
these instructive and splendid etfusioiis of natural ge- 
nius and cultivated talent are to be found, except in 
tbe eplieincral newspapers of tbe day„ wbicb few have 
preserved, and wbicb are now inaccessible to ttie 
great mass of society. Believing that these excellent 
speeches are worthy of preservation, and that the jnib- 
lic participate in our opinion we have resolved to un- 
dertake their publication, in a form more convenient 
for general use, and belter ralciiltitcd to difru-.c their 
benefits, than that in wbicb they arc now to be found 

'I'lie work which we propose to publish will comprise 
the following speeches delivered by .Mr. Clay, all of 
wbicb refer to subjects of general interest, and wbicl 
can never be read wilboiit instruction and delight by 
the politicians of our country, even after many suc- 
ceeding generations shall have passed away.

dido.— 181(1. 

2. On the renewal of tbe Bank Charter. — 181 1.

pledge ourselves that no pains shall be spared, on our 
part, to render it entirely worthy of their approval

This mill is an over shot, erected in a large stone

feet IN diameter, witb two pairs of runners and ilio 
third pair just ready to lay down; all the inacbinery 
IS good, and she is completely fixed oil' w ith Bolls amt 
Elevators, Ac. 'The Ilorse Mill is new. The Saw 
Mill is a first rale one. 'The Distillery is a steam 
distillery, only built last summer, and is ealculatcd 
to run five barrels of whiskey per day; it is erected 
in a large stone bouse. 'The mashing is done by steam 
upon tbe third floor and cooled off on the second, and 
run on tbe first, except tbe slap-inasb. wbicb is luasb-

have no doubt but it exceeds any distillery that bas 
ever been erected in tbe state, and tbe whole, 
both mills and distillery . IS now in full and complete 
operation. 'The said biindrcd and fifty-three acr» s of 
land is nearly all wood-land; there is about one bun-

There is also a nice Farm of one hundred and eighty

other necessary out buildings, which hundred and 
eighty acres of land may be altaclied lo tbe blind red

thirty-three acres, in an oblong square. But the niills, 
distillery, &c. witb tbe hundred and fifty three acres 
of land, will be sold without tbe farm, or tbe farm 
may be attached just as tbe purchaser may wisli. 

'The upper csiablisbinent is on the same creek, and 
only about one half a mile above the lower one. It 
consists of a first rate Merchant Mill. Sato Mill, and 
two comfortable /y«usti, with 138 ACRE.S ■

tbe dam of the Grist mill, and consequently neverj 
interferes witb its grinding. 'The Grist mill is an 
over-shot, with water w heels of about eighteen feet 
in diameter, and erected in a large stone bouse. 
'The machinery is all good, and Ibis mill is calculated 
to make fifty barrels of flour per day. The Dw elling 
House at the mill is a comfortable frame bouse, with 
three fire-places and stone cbininey, witb a good 
kitchen and stone chimneys, and other necessary 
bouses. 'The Dwelling House at tbe Saw mill is

These two establishments will be sold together or
