W Coneka on our pew route, and arriv
ed at this place last night.
I had entertained a hope that the Se
minole Indians, apprised of this move
ment, would yield to my demand, and
thereby obviate the necessity of marching
to the frontier, the auxiliary force which
you were pleased to put in readiness for
the purpose. This hope has not been re
alized. On the contrary, it appears from
the best information 1 can obtain, that
the Serainoles, have made arrangements
to collect their force, amounting to up
wards of two thousand warriors, and at
tack us as'soon as we cross Flint river.—
Although I put little faith in their threats,
and believe their numbers to be overra
ted—yet, under all the circumstances of
the case, 1 feel it to be my duly to re
quest of your excellency, the,, regiment
of Infantry and squadron of Cavalry, de
signated for this service; and that they
may be ordered to assemble at Ft. Haw
kins on the 25th ilisf. or as soon alter
that day as may be practicab'e— where
the infantry will be armed and cquiped,
and the whole mustered and inspected,
. by major Nix of the army of the United
States. I apprehend it. will not be prac
ticable to arm the cavalry, but in part:—
It is therefore very desirable that this
part of the force, should bring with them
their own arms and equipments—other
wise 1 shall be under the necessity of
putting muskets in the hands of such as I
may be unable otherwise to arm.”
Copy of a letter from, major Tiviggs to
gen. Haines, dated “ Ft . Scotty 1 stj\'ov.
Sir, —Since my last communication,
nothing of any importance lias occurred
in this quarter, 1 have u character in
confinement, who was present at the mee
ting at the Mikasuka town the last of
September. The determination of the
Indians is, to give up no murderers or
others to the whites, and as soon as wo
cross Flint river to attack u:s. The chiefs
counted the number present at the mee
ting—there were 2700 warriors.”
(The governor lias issued orders for
the drafted militia to rendezvous at the
place appointed on the first day of De
Capt. Arnold of the ship Lucy from
(Bordeaux has brought out despatches for
government from the American Minis
ters at the Court of Spain. It is presu
med that these despatches relate to the
negociatioas carrying on between the
United States and -Spain as to the pur
chase of the Fioridas. It is distinctly
understood, on very good authority, that
Great-Bntain has said to Spain, “ If
you chouse too keep the Fioridas it is
well; but if you determine to sell them,
we think we have a right to the prefer
ence and we shall expect the first oiler.”
This language has offended and embar
rassed the Court of Madrid, although we
do not believe it will influence its deter
mination; indeed we leel confident that
that determination is made, and is now
in the United States. We come to this
conclusion from a knowledge of the fact
that the Spanish Minister, Don Onis,
has at tliis moment in his possession seal'
P,D DESPATCHES from his COUlt, which
despatches he is directed not to open ttit
i'd the meeting of Congress!!!

From Moore's Poems.
In slumber, I prithee, hov is it
That souls are oft taking the air,
And paying each other a visit,
While bodies are—Heaven knows
■ I ry- „
I Last night, ’tis in rain to deny it,
I Your Soul took a fancy to roam,
I For 1 heard her, on tiptoe so quiet,
Come ask, whether mine was at home.
I And mine let her in with delight,
I And they talk’ and they kist the lime
I For when souls come together at night,
There is no knowing what they may’nt
I ? d °*
I And yOnr little soul, Heaven bless her:
Had much to complain and to say,
I Os how sadly you wrong and oppress her,
I By keeping her prison’d ail day.
1 41 If I happen,” said she, but to steal
For a peep now and then to her eye,
I Or, to quiet the fever I leel,
I Just venture abroad on a sigh;
I In an instant she frightens me in
I With some phantom of prudence or
I For fear I should stray into sin,
I Or, what is still worse, into error!
| Bo instead of displaying my graces
1 Thro’ looks aud thro’ words, and thro
■1 am sl\ut up in corners and places,
I Wliere truly I blush to be seen!”
■fyon hearing this piteous confession,

as tor grace and discretion,
I lie did not know much ol the matter;
B*But, to-morrow sweet Spirit! he sa:d

will come when your lady’s in k. eil ».
And we’ll talk o'er the subject again.’
