The plain but ho- tue lat -’ b , i( .. ins p r i z ed that freedom, which had been ” ALfl wit a their blood, too highly to surrender it to P ur “ barter it for bondage. They felt indignant at mntsof faction, and discarded the would-be-no- fro n nubile confidence. Thus; flattery and false- 1 -yi | -d iu charms for our countrymen, but subjected the miscreants who deviated from integrity to inexora- ble hetc^-a-*' cnp reason .,bly expect, would have fact! mists that their abhorrent tactics must , e mule when combatted by truth; but the ly ing- s nritof treason has subverted their understanding, and shut it tlie approaches of prudence and ho nor Their former base measures were to be resorted to a** The treasury was declared empty, the government i batik nipt, and the nation poor,-yet the operations of war went on with celerity—the contest was denounced as ricked, and tire maledictions of heaven imprecated, but victo-v crowned it—and the people, who had been call ed on to dismiss their rulers from the helm of the na tion, hailed their servants as “the pilots who had weather ed the siordi,” and looked on their aspersers as vipers who wuiii, if allowed, poison the vitais of our country. These events, it is true, compelled the latter to change their point of attack, but tlie mode underwent no altera tion. T'nev continue the system with a blind fatality that most unavoidably plunge them deeper and deeper in tlie abvss of sebrn and ' insignificance. According to their ertid, flattery and deception are necessary to make the people contented. An opportunity presented itself for the investigation of the national representatives. Num bers of both parties had either willingly or inadvertently stumbled into the pit of error: but the federalists in pro portion greatly exceeded the republicans. The latter de nounced the measure, and are determined to dismiss its supporters among themselves. Notwithstanding this actor justice, tliev are stigmatized with the passage of the com pensation hi!!; but it may be asked, with propriety, have their adversaries shewn as much zeal for its abrogation at the ensuing election? Have- tfi-e federalists reprehended their own representation, or have they selected new suc cessors for them who are pledged to oppose the obnoxi ous procedure? They have entirely neglectedsuch astep, except in the small state of Rhode-Island, where tlie ma jority of the citizens are, in fact, democrats. Vv hat evi dence of their serious disapprobation of the law, tnen, have they furnished? Nothing but the fraudulent and hollow reprehension of a party who has given every proaf of its sincere aversion to the measure that the laws of our country allow. Hut all this is of no consideration with men whose practice and profession have uniformly been to c.-jole and cheat the people in order to make them content. I lypocricy and falsehood are the two grand ingre dients of modern federalism. Yet, surely the tactionists cannot but be aware that the people would jro sooner en trust the liberty of the country with individuals who en tertain so mean an opinion of their intellectual qualifica tions, than an honest man wouM venture his purse in the custody of a professed knave. Undoubtedly, the federal party are destitute of shame and conspicious in folly, when, soliciting tlie confidence of he nation, they tell the people that they are fools, and that to make them con tent, it is necessary that imposture and flattery must be brought imo action. But what will men who openly ad vocate the outrages of Ross and Cockburn {the grave- openin? hero of Chuptico) hesitate to attempt?. They are dead to truth, integrity, patriotism, honor and huma nity,* and suitable only tor the views of despots, or fit dour, unions for fiends. . Their doctrine and their per sons contaminate tlieir very atmosphere of freedom. We have been requested to say, Mr. Abraham D.

General Harrison has published an address to the officers and privates who composed the late western ar my under his command. In this address, tlie general mentions the neglect and disrespect with which he was treated in the senate of the United States, oil the resolu tion for presenting the thanks of congress and a medal to him and governor Shelby. On that occasion, senator Turner averred, on the authority of Mr. Desha from Ken tucky, that, general Harrison reluctantly marched against Proctor in the pursuit which ended in the capture of the British army on the Thames. This assertion is complete ly falsified by the written testimony of governor Shelby; and even Mr: Desha himself has been forced to equivo cate on the subject, by saying that general Harrison had remarked in a council of general officers, that the policy of pursuing Proctor was doubtful. But governor Shel by explicitly denies that the general ever made this re mark. Infact, general Harrison has fully succeeded in shewing that Mr. Desha has basely traduced and misre presented His.conduct, and that his character lias suffered unmerited reproach from this calumny.

A paper-war has commenced between these two gener als; of which general Izard has struck the first blow.— Some months since, a pamphlet appeared, v. hich spoke in light terms of the general—this w as ascribed to the pen of general Armstrong. Izard made the enquiry of Armstrong, whether he avowed the production—and re ceived the following lacoiuc epistle: “La Bergerie, 23d April, 1816. “Srn—I received your letter of the 17th in st. by Satur day’s man, and the duplicate copy by'that of yesterday. Iam not the author of tlie pamphlet to which you refer, and which you say the public voice ascribes to me.— Though no approver of your military conduct in tlie campaign of 1814, I have not published a line on that subject. You do me no more than justice in supposing that what 1 write I am willing to acknowledge. I am sjr, respectfully, your obedient servant, John Armstrong. “General Izard, Philadelphia." To clear his skirts of all imputations, general Izard has published his “Official Correspondence with the War Department,” during the late war. In this pamphlet the following interesting fact is stated: “that our estimates of the British force in the Canadas were considerably be low the truth. From unquestionable sources of infor mation, since the peace, it has been ascertained that in the month of October, 1814, there were from thirty-four to thirty-five thousand British regulars in the upper and lower province; on the American side (from Detroit to Piattsburg inclusively) the whole amount of the effective United States' forces never exceeded ten thousand men.” Militia, of course, are excluded from the calculation. General Armstrong will, in ail probability, lay by— until general Wilkinson’s work is out; which, it has been pompously announced, will appear in September, “in three formidable volumes.” It is supposed, that Arm strong is reserving his fire for Wilkinson—that he will pounce upon him as soon as he shows his face. Arm strong’s fire is formidable indeed—his pen is as piercing and voracious as the vulture’s beak.—Richmond Compi ler, 7th inst. „ r 'P lf ' '‘ r *‘ted States’ sloop of war Peacock, captain Ro- s poken by captain Young, of the brig Vigilant \ort r 6th , of Jurie >® 4b, 25, Ion. 17, 13, From New- Wv aikF^oce.

August 12. At a late census of Monroe county, a county cf the Mississippi territory, which h^s been lately organized, and which comprehends the lands acquired by Jackson’s treaty*, the number of inhabitants amounted to more than 7000; two years ago its inhabitants did not amount to 50, exclusive cf the Indians and their families, who are not estimated in the present census. In our next, we will endeavor to give a general description'of that part of the country, so far as from a personal view of it some years ago, andthebest information obtainedfrom persons lately engaged in surveying it we may able. We are informed through the most respectable source, that a water communication between the forts on the Chattahoochy and Xew-Oricans, has been effected by an order of general Gaines, and that the troops now on the Chattahoochy will be regularly supplied ttirough that channel, instead of a more expen five one of transporting provisions by land from Georgia. The general had some time since ordered 30,000 rations to be convey ed by water from Orleans and up the Appalachicoia to fort Gaines on the Ciiattahoochy; and vessels to be convoyed by a sufficient number of the United States’ gun boats, with orders to destroy any force that might attempt to oppose them. This we hope will effectually destroy the redoutable colonel Nichols’ negro fort on the Ap*- palachicola, or at any rate make it a place little to be feared by the peaceful citizens of the United States. Baltimore, August. 8. The following is an extract of a letter from a gentle man in New-Oyieans to his friend in this city, dated July 14. ' v “The steam-boot Vesuvius, being very heavy with merchandize, was burnt up last night between 11 and 12 o’clock. She was to have started up the river the next morning, ;.*ul in consequence was anchored out some distance, which saved the shipping in tlie port. It is supposed goods to the-amount of §200,000 was destroy ed—Fortunately no lives were lost. MISREPRESENTATION CORRECTED. It is not true, as stated in the London papers, that the king of the Netherlands has refused ail aSylum to proscrib ed Frenchmen. Letters received in this city, dated the 2d of June, authorises us to contradict the London Jour nals. The report seems to have been invented by the British ministry to give countenance to their own inhos pitable, tyrannical, and proscriptive measures. The king of the Netherlands will probably keep aloof from cruelty as long as he steers dear of British influence.—JV. Yor/c Columbian. FROM HAVANA. Charleston, August 13. Our latest accounts (per the Ann and Susan) confirm the statement we had before received, of there being nu merous privateers of the patriot flag, concentrated near Campeachy. General Apodaca, the late governor of Havana, sailed thence on the 28th July—having been ap pointed to the vice-royalty of Mexico. He was convoy ed by three Spanish vessels of war, and several transports; but either on account of the superior force of the patri ots, or the cowardice of the royal fleet—the vice-roy and his squadron had put back into port, on the 4th instant. The Spanish republicans appear daily to increase not only in moral energy but in practical strength.—South. Patriot. August 14. FROM NASSAU. Frotft our attentive correspondent at Nassau, we yes terday received a regular file of the Royal Gazette to the 3d inst. inclusive. They contain no news of importance. Captain Russell, of the Zanga, informs us that his majes ty’s gun-brig Bermuda, captain Paekenham, had sailed for Havana, for the purpose of cruising against the Car- thagenian privateers. The Bermuda mounts only four teen guns, and should two or three of their ^heaviest schoo'.'iers attack her, she will redder but a slim account of her Quixotic excursion in defence of Spanish com merce. In the latest paper we find the following paragraph re lative to the affairs of Cuba: “By an arrival from Cuba we learn that the Cartha- genian privateers continue their blockade of the principal ports of the Island, intercepting and capturing every thing coming within their reach under the Spanish flag.” If one of his majesty’s brigs of war is to scour tlie coast of Cuba of a swarm of privateers as bold and enterprising as they are universally admitted to be we shall shortly I'onk for the return of the days of chivalry.—Go- zett. * Nassatr, (». ».) July 31. Tlie report, published some, time ago in this Gazette from an American paper, of a revolt at Sierra Leon; and the consequent destruction of the town, was not altogeth er wit hout foundation. A letter from Senegal, dated 17th of March, states, that it was nearly the case. The riol act was read, tlie troops out, and appearances threatening, when matters were happily quieted. - SOUTH-AMERICA. Kingston, (Jain.) July 6. The Following is an extract of a letter from General Bolivar to a gentleman in this city, dated Carupano, South-America, 10th June. “I did myself the pleasure of addressing you from the Island of Margaritta, via St. Thomas’s, giving you an ac count of the first successes of our expedition, from the time we left Aux-Cayes, which I hope nas been duly re ceived by you. I now resume my pen with more satis faction, to give you a further account of those successes, which, through the interference of the Great Disposer of all events, has continued to bless the arms of the rep L- lic. On tlie 25th of last month our squadron sailed from Margaritta, and after a long passage of six days, owing to the rapidity of tlie current, anchored below the high battery of Santa Rosa, in Carupano, where the Spanish flag was displayed, as well as on board the vessels in the harbor, all of whom hauled under the battery. At the break of day next morning, I summoned the town and forts to surrender, or otherwise it should be assaulted, when I should not be able to answer for the effusion of blood, whiqh it was my original intention to spare as much as lay in my power, but my summons w..s nt,^ ■ tived by the commandant. Thus situated, I had no other alternative than the immediate disembarkation of the troops, which was immediately performed under tlie or ders of major-general Marino; generals Piar and Sou- blete directing their operations to the left of the town, while the squadron kept up a fire of round and grape on the beach .aid centre of the town. The troops under the comnr*'' :1 of the above officers, gallantly advanced, and in a very short time took command of the principal heights which commanded the town, driving the enemy from their positions, with continue!I success, and no loss'. The Spanish batteries and field pieces the whole time playing* on the squadron and troops, improbably one of the greatest instances of such a disembarkation without loss. General Piar took the rear of the enemy, where he was least expected, with tlie intention of taking* the heights which commanded tlie pusses and vicinity of the town, in which he completely succeeded, and after an action of two hours, I had the satisfaction of seeing the republican colors flying triumphantly on all the forts of Carupano. Only a few of our men were wounded, and that slightly. Our victory was complete, and tlie flight of tlie enemy shameful, as they had tiie greatest advantage in every thing. All the Spaniards possessed, fell into our power, as well as a great quantity of provisions, &.c. and a beau tiful brigand schooner,laden with merchandize; the for mer well armed and equipped, named the Indio Bello, and the latter La Fortuna. In consequence of the occu pation of Carupano by our troops, the Spaniards have abandoned from Cariaco to Guiria, and our communica tions to Maturin are expedited by land and tlie Golfo Triste. I hope a short time only will be required to fa cilitate our communications. I have tlie satisfaction to enclose you the regular bulletins, proclamations, &c. as well as an intercepted Spanish document, which will give you some idea of the men whose tyranny has so long oppressed the continent of South-America.” New-York, August 6. The following stateaient was picked up some time since on the southeast end ofHenuga* and handed to us by captain Rollins for publication. The original is in French and is in our possession. “On board the French sliip Atalanta, captain Roget, of Nantz, at 8 o’clock a. m. 4tli of June, 1816. “This vessel has been captured by a frigate of 44 guns; under Indigene colors. The officers of tills frigate, who are now on board, inform us that they mean to carry us into Port-au-Prince, and assure us, that our persons and effects will be respected. We know not whether this will be the case with the vessel. Our captain has been curried onboard the frigate, with his two mates. “We cannot, at this moment, tell their views, or what course they will pursue; and are therefore ignorant cf our future fate, which determines us to write this. “Wehave on board, forty-three passengers, and a crew of thirty-three, including officers. We request those in to whose hands this writing may come, to serve us and our families by publishing it iii our country. “It 13 to the government of Petion that we are prison ers; and believe we ought to congratulate ourseives oil it. God will protect the unfortunate.”—Gazette. August 7. The following is an extract of a letter from an Ameri can gentleman in Leghorn, to his friend in this city, dated May the 30th, 1S16. “1 have lately received a letter from my friend major Barney, in which he speaks of the pointed and higtily distinguished reception given him by the emperor of Austria, when on a late visit to Trieste. He gave luma private interview of an hour, in which he spoke with much satisfaction of the American commerce to his ports, and said that every thing on his part would be done to en courage it; he seemed to be aware of its being of more value to him than the English, which impression, the ma jor did not of course fail to strengthen, by pointing to the fact, that we not only brought rich cargoes, but re turned ladened with tlie productions and manufactures ot the Austrian empire; the English on the contrary, took lew of the former and none of the latter. On this visit, he says he found the anti-cr.amber crowded with persons of distinction, and the consuls cf other powers Wailing* for an audience. As soon as he entered, he was conducted into the royal presence, and was told, that it was the or ders of the emperor to give the American consul imme diate admission. I am sure, you will participate in the pleasure 1 felt in finding in tlie sovereign of so important a nation and with whom we had so little intercourse, the manifestation of so friendly a disposition towards our country.” Died, on Saturday night, 10th instant, at his brother’s plantation, on Little Ogechee, after a short illness, Cap tain Samuel L. Allen, a native of Pittsfield, (Massachu setts,) aged thirty-three years. He served his country during* the late war on the Canada line; was at the cap ture of Little York, and in a number of other engage ments. He has left a widowed mother, five brothers and two sisters, with numerous other relatives, to lament Jus afflictive dispensation of Providence.
