SAVANNAH REPUBLICAN. Thursday Evening, August 22, 181& *- -^Fugitives for their CW«« or their Virtue*!” A Dutch ship is reported to have arrived in the Dela. vare , from Amsterdam, with SIX HUNDRED passengers. Among the passengers arrived at New-York, on the Hth instant, on board the ship Swift, from Antwerp, are Count Rial, family, and nephew, formerly Prefect of Police, at Paris. Ap eastern paper, in mentioning the candidates for the next Presidency and Vice-presidency, indulges itself m and M&e sametimetetr&yfag $ , r . Not by giving information against ‘ his associates; not” by revealing secret facts which have come to his knowledge —for hot one fact of this description has yet leaked out 1 —but by denouncing their measures and motives on gen eral speculative grounds. Such is the gaeat triumph which the federalists have gained!—Richmond Enquirer. the usual federal spleen mid misrepresentation against the character and talents of distinguished republicans- But the shafts of this malicious detraction fall pointless before their superior talents and sterling integrity. The American people are truly prosperous—blest with rulers desirous to promote their happiness, and the ag grandizement of the nation—to subserve the interests of the people, and not the cause of a party. Let candid men of all parties, seriously take into con* sideration the object of the late war ponder upon the causes which led to its declaration-view it in its various stages, its termination and final tendency—and they will profit from the conviction which cannot fail to attend such an enquiry. “They will be convinced of the neces sity ofsupporting, with all their might, the government of their country,” instead of combining with a faction, whose sole aim is to prostrate its liberties in the dust. To our manufactures Congress should extend its fos tering hand. They did render some benefits to them last session; but they must do more-, indeed it is a duty which the wisdom of our Legislators will not suffer to be neglected; it is pregnant with consideratiMM dear to every American, who wishes to see his cowky inde pendent of all others in the articles most necessary for her use and consumption. The manufacture of woollen and cotton fabrics has already been greatly extended since the commencement of the late war; and it requires but the supporting influence of the government, to cherish our infant establishments to the growth and im portance of maturity. It is this, with the increase of in ternal commerce, which will give strength to the rising energies of the republic; and render her totally inde pendent. Duane’s opposition to the administration, we believe, originated from disappointed ambition—his attacks are mean and underhand, and although manfully support ed by the colonel, the people must have better evidence before they join in the hue and cry! Duane puts us in mind of an old mastiff", whose teeth are worn out, that can only growl and snarl at the ob jects he wishes to bite. The Aurora abuses the administration and all their measures—So db the Fetin'; and Duane is called a De mocratic Editor. The Democratic Party consider him an apostate; and disclaim all that he may write. Ever since the administration refused to adopt Duane’s military system, and gave preference to the one by the board of officers—he has poured forth yells more he- dious than ever a wounded hound issued. We wonder if Billy Dunne, would have been so violent ly opposed to the best interests of the country, provided Mr. Madison had given him an ageiicy to the Mediterra nean, and made choice of the mighty colonel’s military work, in preference to Brown’s, Scott’s, &c.? If we place any faith in what Duane writes, we must be lieve that Madison is not fit for the presidency—Con gress are' strangers to the interests of their country— Dallas is a knave—General Scott a madman, and Brown no general—The public Journals are pot free, and no Editor so upright as Colonef Duane. While DHane is calling certain individuals in Phi ladelphia coioards, we would wish to know his opin. ion, whether the man who was, last summer, caned by Major Worth, and who was afterwards posted in that ' city, is not a co ward? Duane, of late, has consented to become a beast of bur den, a very as* to that party, who have given him more beating than feeding. FEDERAL candor. It is no secret, that the Aurora has for several months past, been a most virulent opposer of the administration —that it lias denounced the ruling party as one of the most flagitious that ever bore sway in any country—that it lias placed no reins upon its attacks, and that the Au rora has, by this course of proceeding, excited the resent ment, and justly forfeited the confidence of the great re publican party. Stuck from the rolls of that part)', it still continues its Quixotic attacks upon those who have learned to despise its bitterest denunciations. And yet the federal papers of Maryland, and elsewhere, are citing the Aurora, “as a democratic paper, edited by colonel Duane, who governed the democratic state of-Pennsylvania for many years, and has long had great influence'with the de mocrats all over the United States.” Is John Randolph a democrat?—and yet he might be cited as a witness with "the same propriety as William Duane. Here is a plain dilemma—either Mr. Duane is a friend to the republican party,, or he is not—if a friend, would he so indiscriminately abuse its measures and its admi nistration?—if he is not, then why so ingeniously term the Aurora “a democratic jj&pcr,” m the ordinary acception of the term—or why pretend that colonel Duane’s “de votion to democracy has never been doubted?" Call the Aurora any tiling yon please, gentlemen, a •non-content, a discontent, a malcontent, an opponent, or if you wish it a federal paper—but do not so far abuse the ordinary force of expressions, as to call it a “democratic paper.” Say, that it has been a democratic paper of high Standing, but that it is no longer so; that disgusted by the measures of die republican party, or irritated by “private griefs” of his own, the editor has forever abandoned the party to which he belonged; treat him then as a slate's evidence, betraying the very men with whom he had as sociated, and revealing the secrets with which he had been entrusted, the argument would be -a fair one. The witness would then have been fairly sifted by the rules of testimony. Is this state’s evidence worthy of belief?— he no private griefs to sway his judgment? Has he no resentments to gratify, nor mortified ambition to snolh, no secret object to accomplish? Is there no piqued office-hunter at his ear poisoning the very fountains of 'wth and sincerity ? And what is the amount of his evi- <knci?? What secrets has he told? What new fact re- v taled, which he draws from tbfe dark to blast his old as- U( l ? t6S? ‘^ re tlie y consistent with probability? Are they Such are the points which would be discussed—but is not the course pursued by the federal party. It est suits their purposes to represent colonel Duane in contr-idktory characters of a democratic editor and a Vais's evidence—as belonging to the republican party, The federal prints are out of credit with the people, and thinking that even the treacherous apostate, Duane, stands in better repute than themselves, they try to palm his base calumnies upon the public as democratic truths. But it will not do ; the people detest the Auro ra falsehoods as much as they do those of federal fac- tionists—Baltimore Patriot. The dismissed and disgraced Colonel, who edits the Aurora, wishes perhaps, to recommend himself to the favor of the British ministry, by his abuse of republicans and republican measures. He has certainly got into high favor with their friends the blue light party !—lb. Since the war, and his famous retreat froin Marcus Hook, the republicans understand Duane’s courage and soldier-like patriotism too well to trust him any longer. He seems to have foreseen this ; and therefore turned in to abusing them, in order to have it said that he first lost his confidence in them ! But his military manoeuvring to keep out of the field of battle tailed to impose on any body a belief that he was a brave man; and his editorial manauvring will also fail to convince any persCn that he is an honest politician.—ib. The Aurora says that the republican papers “cannot enter into the idea of an independent press.” We have heard of ideas entering the minds of men; but Duane must be sadly at a loss for topics of invective, when he makes it a matter of reproach that republican editors can not enter into an idea!—ib. The Aurora is always making new discoveries, political, metaphysical, moral or physical. It once discovered that Redheffer’s perpetual motion was a bona fide discovery; and it now discovers that people can enter into ideas!—ib. Adjutant and inspector general's office, August 1, 1816. GENERAL ORDER. Preparatory to forming a list of army officers, confor mably' to a resolution of congress, passed April 27,1816. the state and county in which each commissioned officer was born, will forthwith be reported at this office. By onler, D. Parker, <r Adjutant and inspector general. From the Richmond Enquirer. At this and the same moment, two circumstances of an apparently opposite complexion present themselves together. If we cast our views abroad, we see the inha bitants of Europe flocking by hundreds to the new world —two hundred and thirty two from Hull and Waterford who have just landed at New-York——one hu.aured and fifty from the north of Ireland, who are coming in the Lindsay—four hundred and five Swiss who have sailed from Amsterdam for New-York—besides others who •have crossed the sea, or are meditating a voyage in in sulated detachments—France, Switzerland, Germany, En gland, Scotland, are yielding up their inhabitants—and ■ “all Ireland,” it is said, would come over, if she had the way. Some are driven by oppression, others by the fear of it—all are invited by the charms of the 'brilliant' character which we have just won, the freedom we enjoy, the hospitable asylum which we have just opened to the 1 wanderer. * And it is at this moment that we see inquisitorial cir culars from the department of war and or the general post office,* flowing from a resolution of the last congress, entering all ourpubiic offices—whose object is what? to ask the head of the office, however small it may be, “in what state or county were you born?” and extending the same to the lowest clerk in the office!—If it be meant by this, to draw a distinction between the citizens of the different states, and to drive the from an office of the west, it is contrary to the genius of federal; constitution, which ought to regard ail its citizens with; the same impartial eve—it is against the genius of a con stitution, which provides that “the citizens of each state; Shall be entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states.” If it be meant to distin guish between the citizens born here, and those who were not, the native born and the naturalized citizen, it is also incomna'ibie with a constitution which shuts no door of office to the naturalized citizen, except thajfc which leads to the Presidency of the United States. It is also virtually contrary to the solemn faith of naturali zation which we plighted to the foreigner, when wfe received his pledge of allegiance. If he be unwor thy of confidence, he should not have been put into of fice, or he should be turned out for his demerits surely, and not for his birth—if the law be already too liberal of its gifts, if too many aliens be let in, who are unfit to enjoy them, change its provisions, and require a longer term of residence. But we ought not, by this under hand and insidious means, to set a mark upon the natu ralized citizen and throw such an impediment in the way of emigration. •Not from those alone, but from every branch of the government—Treasury, Navy, Land Office, Ac.—Natiooi- ul Intelligencer. A PLAIN FACT. The republican majority in the recent elections in Ver mont was In New-Hampshire Federal majority in Massachusetts In Connecticut about Rhode-Island 150U 2700 -4200 20/0 700 400 3170 -1030 Leaving a republican majority, even in the “nation of New-England,” of 1030. In Maryland, in general ballot, there is a majority of 5000 republicans—All the other states and territories republican. Alas, federalism, where is thy sting?—Oh! Cossack^! when will be your victory? —Balt. Patriot. Gentlemen from Maine are divided in opinion on the subject of separation. Some think more than two-thirds of the votes will be in favor of the measure, and others that the required five ninths cannot be obtained. The balance appears on the separation side.—Centinel, Au gust 7. THE OHICKASAWS. Tile delegation from that tribe arrived here on Mon day last, on their return from Washington city. They protest against the claim which the Cherokees have set up to the lands lately ceded to them. The Cherokees, they say, never had any land south of Tennessee. The whole nation express the same sentiments, and at a council lately held in that nation, the ChickasaWs declared they would go to war with the Cherokees sooner than have them as neighbors. They say, if the United States fake the land designated in the late treaty, well and good—they will submit; but they will not yield it to the Cherokees.— Nashville Whig, ailth nit. General Toledo, whose name is familiar to our readers, as the leader of the revolutionary forces in the Spanish provinces, bordering on the United States, passed through this city on Sunday. He arrived at Alexandria in a vessel from New Orleans, and is gone northwardly, His object is not known.—-National Intelligencer, 19fA inst The change in the representation in the congress which commences on the 4th day of March next, will be consid erable. Three elections only-have yet taken place, New York, Louisiana and Kentucky. In New York there are many changes. Kentucky is not yet heard from; but it is probable there will not be more than three out of ten of the present members re-elected, as several of them have declined serving. We are surprized and sorry to learn, from a communi cation in the Enquirer, that H. St. G. Tucker has declined a re-election from the Winchester district in Virginia. There is a prospect of the whole delegation ■ of Con necticut being changed. Two of the seven, Mjk 1 all- madge and Mr. Davenport, decline being considBfred as candidates. ^ considefed as candidates for the next "ational Intelligencer.

Morris, now in this har bour, is undergoing a thorough rcpa.r, the Constitution and Guerriere frigates are to be hauled off, to give room for the Congress to be hove down and coppered—after which she .vili be refitted to proceed upon a long voy age, probably for.the northwest coast of America, during which she is expected to survey several coasts and har bours. I The U. S. sloop of war Promc-theusi Capt .♦Wadsworth, is getting ready for sea. She is supposed to be bound to Russia, to carry a messenger witty disf&tches. The projected enterprize of navigating a Steam Boat across the Atlantic ha§ excited the ambition of one of our most distinguished, naval Commanders, c become instrumental in conducting her. A new boat of about o6J tons is to proceed from New-York to England, anu thence to,a port in the Russian dominions, in accept ance of a patent privilege for the Russian warei s. - ' New York, August3. f ' i We should not be surprized to hear within a few days, that several of our vessels of War are ordered round Cape [Horn, v i.. A correspondent presumes that the notiee from the I British. consul requiring all vessels bound to Great Bri tain, Ac. to furnish to his itffice previous to's: tiling, a mani fest of their cargo, is meant to apply t'o all British vessels - only; as be is very confident that neither by treaty or law, are the American vessels liable to be called upon for such manifest. We are pleased to state, that major general Brown has appointed, ashis aid-de-camp, lieutenant Robert M‘Men- yon l Harrison, of tnis city, who was severely wounded at the attack on Pluttsbuvg. r !d August 12. Captain Hale, of the brig Sampson, informs, that on the 2d of July, arrived at Gibraltar the United States’ ship Of war Washington, of 74 guns, commodore Chauncey.— On her anchoring in the bay, she fired a salute, which was returned from the garrison. The Washington was from Annapolis, mid had on board the honorable Mr. Pinck ney, appointed minister to Russia. Captain Milien, from Rio Janeiro, informs, that a few days prior to his sailing, an expedition of twelve sail, in cluding a 74, two frigates, three stoops of war, and small er vessels, with 3000 troops, went against Monte Video. These troops lately arrived there from Portugal. Halifax, July 29. The following extract from the Grace’s log book, completely contradicts the report in the London papers of the commencement of hostilities by the Algerines ag.iinst Great Britain. Ji|fie 19, in iat. 47, "65, long. 11, fell in with lord Exrnouth’s squadron from the Mediterranean, 6 sail of the line, 2 frigates, and 2 brigs—was boarded by an of ficer, who s;iid that there was no truth in the report of the Algerines having violated the treaty entered into with them by lord Exmouth.” A letter has been received in this city, from a passen ger in the British brig Messenger, dated at Turks-Isl- and, stating the loss of that vessel and carg'O (crew sav ed) on the 26th June, on the northwest of Caicos Isl and. The above vessel sailed from Baltimore the begin- ing of June, with a full cargo of flour, corn, Ac. bound to Kingston, Jam. General Toledo, of the revolutionary army of South- America, accompanied by his secretary (an American) and another gentleman, were in this town on Tuesday and Wednesd-y hist. They came p;issengers we under stand with captain Grinnolds of this port from New-Or- leans, where an attempt had been made by some of the emisaries of the old government to assassinate him, from which he narrowly escaped, a ball passing through the cuff of his coat. He is of the ordinary size, and hand somely proportioned, about thirty-five years old, and has held the command of an admiral under the government of the king. The object of his visit to this part of the country is a profound secret, as he acts very much upon the reset^e. There can be but little doubt but what it relates to furthering the views of the revolutionists, al though he d>. dined the offer, -while lure of the services of several individuals, and appeared averse to private con versation. On the 2d of January last he was denounced by t^ie chevalier De Unis as a “traitor who was preparing an expedition at New-Orleans against the dominions of the king his master” in conjunction with other insur gents wno had taken refuge there. We think it more than probable that lus present object is to obtain a supply of arms, ammunition and provisions for his partizans, to be conveyed in fast sailing vessels under the American flag: if this is the case we shall soon here of his being in Baltimore.—Alexandria Herald, 14th inst. From Aux Cages, June 21. “The French ship that was taken on her passage to the Havana, by a frigate, has arrived at Port-au- Prince. “President Petion, with his characteristic goodness, gave orders to release her immediately; observing that He was not making war on commerce? or the French na tion, but that he wanted only to maintain the rights and independence of his country.” ..II; 3g>: —I .
