RE PUB Lie A A SAVANNAH, May *>, i306. MUCH h?s beta fcid refpediny the MURDER of John Pierce, a chi zen of the United States, near the har borof N. York, by a ball from thcißritifh ship of war Leander—the conduit ot the commantler en this occasion is hollile to the interelt of this country- ** he violated the Laws of Nations—he wilfully murdered a citizen of the U. S- — that it was wilful there remains no doubt—that it w 9 an inl'ult upon the American Flag, wejirefume there is no one hardy enough to deny—that our government will immediately demand! reparation, is the hope of every Repub” Jican. Have tliefe ‘ despots of the ocean ’ authority to commit such depredations upon cur commerce —even within the mouths of our harbors ? Will Ameri cans be idle fpeftaters on this occa fion ? Will they fee their veiLls cap- j t ired, their cit'z ns murdered, and treat th: uthor of such barbarous afts with lenity ? No, Americans, arouse from your {lumbers, and protest that Inde pendence, which was obtained by the blood of your fathers. We admire the public spirit which has been visible on this occalioa in the city of New-York ; but, when we fee a certain class of men make it an'.wer an electioneering pur pose, we are fearful their mighty parade was but an out-fide show. “ The following is the reply of the secretary of the treasury, in anfwerto the Tefolutiou o the House of Representa tives, refpefting Mr J {Lrfon’s having attempted unconfiiiuiio.lally to draw money from that department. The re lolution was introduced by Air. Jackion, from what motive we know not: Ran dolph probably insinuated famething of tile loud ; 7 .enj'i'-y Department, / Ipti l 15, 1805 Sir, “ In a-rlwer to t’ e request contain ed in the resolution of the House of Re presentatives of the B.h infl. I have the honor reipedtiully to ttsie that rt no ap- ’ plica-ion lias been made to draw money 1 the Treafu y fir the purchase of j tiie Fioridas before an appropriation made \ by law for that purpose.” “ T e circumitances, which may have J pr iduceo an imprdTton thn: fucli an ap. pheation had been made, being uncon Jicdtci with any matter pertaining to the duucs ot tiie office of secretary of the treaiury, are nut presumed to come with in the lcope of the information required from this department by tlie House. “ 1 have tiie honor to be, With great refpedt, Sir, your obedient fcrvan% ALBERT GALLATIN. “ The honorable, the Speaker of the House of Ileprcfcntative*.” The fore going reply of Mr. Galla tin, completely exculpates the Prcfident of the United States from all the flun deroU3 affertiuns which have been ad vanced, by the enemies of freedom, on this fubjeCt. We have heard men un biufhingly affiert, that Mr. Jeflerfon had ! drawn from the reafury of the United States TWO MILLIONS OF DOL- L I RS, as a tribute to Bonaparte ; at! the time they wire cot.fcious tiiat j this sum was app-opriateij by the: Cor.g-cfs of the United States, for the j express purpjfeof purchasing the Fieri da,. Can such men read the above, and call thcmfclves supporters of truth and the laws of their country ? If the perils 1 of ’76 should again hover arour.d us, could confidence be placed in fuc'n men r Would they, like the heroes of that day, brave the hour that tried nerds su!s ? i To vilify the rulers of the government, appears to be their favorite topic- Bad indeed is the cause which requires faife hoods to support it-.-such, it seems, is the cause of Fede alifin. The Republican tickets in the city sf N- York, for members of C ingrefi ’ & State Legislature, have prevailed by a majority of 618... the tx'raordinary es forts and misrepresentations of federai illsto the contrary notwlthilanding. The candidates tor Governor in the Rate of Rhode-Ifland, have neither a Efficient majority of votes to make a choice, consequently the appointment of * Governor devolves upon the Legifla *uie \ BY THOM ‘ 3 JEFFERSON, ; icitQen. ot 1 tic Uniied Matts of .-Ame rica. \ Proclamation. bi'.ftr.
