Joseph M. White, Esq. Delegate from Flo-
nda, has addressed a letter to GenffhtUMcrcer,
Chairman of tho committee on Roads and Ca
nals, on the project for improving tho naviga
tion in and across East Florida.
In »he first place he makes some statements
concerning the proposed canal across that pen
insula. I’o illustrate the importance of such a
xvork, he inquires, what would have been tho
X'aluo of a. natural navigable passage in that di
rection; and how much blood and treasure our
government would have been willing to expend
of using it, in case tho country
had fallen into tho hands of a foreign power.—
riie expense of one or two millions, therefore,
is a trifle, xvhen placed against tho advantages
such a plan promises. He says it was n favour
ite doctrine xvith Mr. Jefferson, that the posses
sion of Cuba Wjt»£ssential to tho United States,
to preservo (he communication between our
eastern and xvestern waters; and states on
good authority, that Mr. J. declared a year or
txvo beforo his death, that his gun-boats wore
recommended with a view to such an acquisi
tion.^ Tho important position occupied by
that island is obvious; but it is a great recom
mendation to the canal proposed, that it would
render our comracrco almost independent of
In caso of the construction of tho canal be
tween tho Atlantic.and Pacific oceans, xvhich-
Mr. White thinks will first or last be effected,
the Florida canal xvould sccuro to us every ad
vantage xve could desire with respect to tho
former; for tho United States would have tho
poxvor of excluding foreign ships from their
oxvn territory; and obliging them to go round
tho peninsula. Mutual interests would undoubt
edly sti eng then our relations with tho Repub
lic of Central America.
The bay of St. Joseph, north of Capo St.
Bias, in West Florida, is perhaps the most val
uable harbour in tho United States, south oT
the Chesapeake, excepting that of Pensacola.
The surveys have disclosed numorous advan
tages. St. John’s river is navigable for largo
merchantmen a great distance; for vessels of 30
tons to Lako Gcorgo, and for steamboats as far
south as 23 degrees and 30 minutes. For the
first hundred miles from its mouth it is two
miles xvide oil ah average, and frequently ex
pands into lakes four miles across. Tho river
flows, almost the whole length of its course,
through public lands. Tho country is cover
ed with pine, * cypress, live oak and ce-
Uar—’“nneqaiiKed in quantity jm*-qnaVny irexlxo
United States;” and when tho soil is cloared,
it is favorable to tho cultivation of sugar, or
anges, lemons, limes, olives, rice, &c. It is
said that $10,000 would open an inland tide
navigation, from tho head of tho St. John’s to
With regard to tho navigation n!5ag the east
ern const of tho peninsula, ho remarks that n
■safo convenient route already exists, aided by
a little improvement, from St. Mary’s to St.
John's, xvititin Amelia isluud; and threo cuts in
different places, amounting in all to only thir
teen miles and a half, xvould open a line of na
vigation from St. Mary’s to Tortugas: a dis
tance of five hundred and cigh*.y*six miles.—
Tho excavations would be through low sand
banks, and might all bo performed ibr fifty thou
sand dollars. This xvould extend the navigation
by steamboats nearly a thousand miles.
The reasons xvhy Florida has received so
few settlors, are tho devastations it suffered in
1812, and the want of an arrangement in tho
land titles. About txvelve hundred thousand
oranges aro annually gathered at Si. Augus
tine, and about tho same quantity in its vicinity.
Some trees xvhtch aro supposed to be one hun
dred und twenty yoars old, now yield four
thousand oranges a piece. Nincteon twentieths
of the supply of this kind‘of fruit for tho Uni
ted States arc however imported from foreign
places, although Florida might furnish the-
whole amount, and that at great advantage: for
txvo laborers in an orango grove of ten acres,
will produco as much os forty on a sugar or
cotton plantation. Mr. Whito also shows that
tobacco, silk, rico, cotton, vinos, &c. dec. could
be cultivated in that country to tho greatest ad
On tho subject of opening a communication
betxvccn the Appalachicola, through St. An
drew’s Bay, to ChlRawntchic, ho says that two
cuts of txvo and four miles xvoulif accomplish
tho design; and that a third cut of 4 miles xvould
open it to Nexv Orleans—tho whole expense
not exceeding one hundred thousand dollars,
and tho steamboat navigation opened by it be
ing about three hundred and fifty miles.
The immense advantages promised by these
projects, Mr. Whito contrasts xvith the com
paratively insignificant works provided for by
tho government last year, in tho bill to provide
for “improving certain harbours, and the navi
gation of cortain rivers and creeks”.—N. Y.

la Senate, on the 5th instant, in rckltion to the President’s
Message, concerning The dispiue between the United
Slates and hit excellency Governor Troup, on the su'i-
jeet of the Georgian line of boun'Jsry.-
Air Benton moved the reference of the mes
sage to tho judiciary committee. At first he
had thought it a fit subject for a reference to
tho committee on Indian-Affairs; but he did’
not now think so, as there xvoro questions in
volved in the message in relation to tho enforce
ment of. laws and treaties, xvhich required an
investigation by the judiciary committee.
Mr. Berrien said: I agree with the senator
fromAlissouri, that this messagonnd tho accom
panying documonts, ought not to bo referred to
tho committee on Indian Affdirs, bccnusa they
involve questions very much boyond the limits
oftho'so xvhich aro ordinarily and appropriately
assigned to that committee. I disagree xvith
him in the opinion that thej' constitute a pro
per subjoct of refcrcnco to tho judiciary 1 com
mittee ; and so perfect is my reliance on tho
correctness of his judgement, xvhen ho shall
havo directed his attention to tho various sub
jects of this message, that I shall not hoxxiatoto
proposo a different reference, in the confidence
that he xviil, on further reflection, concur with
mo in the viow xvhich I havo taken of it, and
will therefore withdraw his motion.
Sir, tho President of tho United States, in
tho message now beforo us, has Called us to the
consideration of various questions, in thoir na
ture grave, important, and dolicatoi
He has told you. that certain officers of tho
State of Georgia, acting within the limits of
that State, mid under the authority of its laws,-
havo violated, according to his construction of
it, an act of tho Congress of the United States.’
He has told you that, according to his construc
tion of that act, ho is authorized to arrest these
officers thus engaged in the execution of thoir
duty, under tho laW3 of tho State, und withiu
its limits, and to bring them to trial beforo tho
judicial tribunals of tho Unitod States, or, at
his discretion, to employ tho military force of.
tho Union, tho army of tho Unitod States, tho
bayonets of ifs regular soldiery, to coerce tho*
Stato of Georgia, through those officers.to sub
mit to his construction of this act, and his opin
ion as to the rights of that State. Ho has told
you that ho has already directed thenrrest and
trial of’theso officers, as offenders against this
law oftho United Sates; and beforo any docis-’
ion Of yours can operate, this mandate will no
doubt havo been carried into effect, so fir as it
rdatos to.tho arrest of the supposed offundots. c ■
Ho submits to you tho inquiry, whether any
act of legislation bo necessary on the part of
the Congress of the United States: andaccom-
anicsthis inquiry xvith tho declaration of bisi
..clot’iniuatton, under a sense of higher obliga
tions than any which Congress can impose, if
in His view it shall become necessary, to calL
out tho military force of the United States to
carry this act oYCongress into oftect, according:
to his understanding of its meaning and iutcnt. ;
Sir, I repeat tho declaration. Tho ‘ques
tions presented by this message arc grave, im
portant, mid dclicato. They can not bo arrang
ed rfnder tho hcad’of tho duties, appropriately
an 1 peculiarly assigned to any ouo of tho stand
ing committoes of tho Hbttto.
Admitting, as iu deference to tho authority
by which they aro assorted, wo aro bound to do,,
for the mere purpose o£ this inquiry, that th»
