Messrs. Freneau IA Williams, Avery lingula- phenomenon exhibited itfe't immediately adjoining the fort on Soiii van’s I {land. At twelve o’clock this day, about two hundred and fifty yards southward of the fort, a variety of fiffures appeared upon the fir 1 ace of the beech ; immediately it be gan to fall in with a dreadful node, and con tinued to fill, at snort intervals, until half after one o ciock, p. m. At which time, a gentle man took a small boat in order to found t ie* depth, which, inside the circle or half moon, (which was the form it afiumed, and which is at present two hundred and forty feet in cir cumferncce) was betwixt two and three L tho 11s deep. The land seemed to fall in pieces, fume of them, I suppose, about five hundred weight, leavingt!w body cf the beach altogether perpendicular. To what cause to attribute this phenomenon, I am yet uncer tain. A SPECTATOR. Sullivan’s Island, October 27, 1302. I A FEW BLANK BOOKS. For laic at this ohicc From the RICHMOND EXA Mil! ER j TO J. T. CALLENDER. In the American revolutionary war, Ii ■ought for my country. I had her approba tion, I was hennored with her confidence in the public councils. The wheel of fortune became adverse, and my decrepitude from the pally constrained j me to adc for a fubf;iten:e. The Cincinnati, | among vhome are Cenera.s Marfl ia i 1 and ] Wood, Colonels Garrjngron, Heath and! Bentlv, refnectable chiracters, readily contri buted, and have given me a subsistence for life. Sev< ral of the gentlemen differ from, me in politics ; but does that atithorife me to ibuic them ? Does that circurnftance leßen their talents or their virtues ? No. Early raft year I informed Mr. Thomas jc Her son that I w'as in want; he immediately rrquefted Mr. George Jefrerfon of this city to pay me fifty dollars, which was clone. 1 wrote to Mr. Jefrerfon, the Prc fi lent, that 1 wished to return to Kentucky, and re queued foiVvC little aid to support tne or; my J journey —he generoufiy C\ i. me thirty dobars j more. 1 have heard that you, Ike rr.yfeT, nr? poor; that you hive children in Philadelphia mat were fn wane that in vour dulrrfs, hav ing mentioned yoifr in the cause of liberty, that good man the President, whom 1 have known for thirty years, who fe character as a man of benevolence, talents and virtue dignif y the hu nan heart, sent you. at different times, to the amount of one hundred dollars : For his charity, you have repaid him with the vi. cli a bum.

Ad a its s out of office and placed Mr. Jefierfon in the prefj iental cb-tir— Matchiefs vanity ! No, Mr. Callander, you are much mistaken; the fedirion law, and the i improper U rigorous conduft of Judge Chafe, did more injury to the federalifts, than the writings of a thousand Callenders You, Mr Callender, have no •r.ore weight with the independent republicans, than the fly on the'-wheel of* a coach con tributes to its motion. You have made a wrong rflu mate cf your talents and your consequence ; you are of importance to neither party, republican or federal. The republicans Taj:ported you, becaulc they thought you the vidtim of per lecution, and the martyr of liberty. By your base abandonment of principle, you have drawn on vourfeif e.ernal infamv and dis-mace - v O and this without Fcuring the confidence cr efleem of the federal ills. They confldtr yon as a Tecond Judas ; yCU have ioid your principles for gold, and while he v applaud the.treafon the a:ult abhor the traitor. Know alio, flr, that tl ere are very many gentlemen who reside in this city, as well as’ many others who dwell at a distance from it, who have been as benevolent to me, and ihrdl iiave my grateful and refpecUul thanks dur ing my exigence.
