SERIOUS QUESTIONS TO FEDERALISTS.
We fequently hear your leaders exclaiming about ‘ithe
loss of thousands of lives, the expenditure of millions of
money and the incurring of an enormous debt,” by the
wav which they pretend was closed by abandoning its
Do you not know federalists publicly demanded re
dress of British spoliations; from our government, "even
by an appeal to arms,” six years before war was declar
Do you not know that the delay of your government
in enforcing that redress, occasioned federal leaders to
ridiclile our government as “pusillanimous'," to declare
that it “could not be kicked into a war,” and to write
to their British friends that they need not mind our blus
tering, for we dare not raise a finger in earnest?
Do you not know that after the war was declared fe
deral leaders used every effort to make it unpopular, to
discourage and impede recruiting for the army, to with
hold the militia, to deny the loan of money, and deter
others from loaning it, to negociate a seperate peace be
tween New England and Great Britain, and to weaken
the arm of our government by every possible means?
Do you not kuo'wit to be demonstrable in the nature
of things, that embarrassing our own government and
consequently encouraging the enemy, must inevitably
hsrfe operated in a double ratio to protract the war?
Do you not know, that by the protraction of the war,
"thousands of lives” and “millions of money” were sac
rificed, that might have been saved, if federal leaders had
fulfilled their solemn premises in 18l)6 by uniting their
whole strengthen “an appeal to arms against Great Britain?
Do you not know that previous to the peace which
federal leaders now condemn their common cry was
'give lis peace on any terms?' and do you not know fed
eralists of Delaware, that your own lamented Bayard
was a conspicuous member of the commission which ne
gotiated tile peace?
In short, do you not know''(what is on record under
their own hands) that the same Unprincipled leaders who
condemned the war, were among the first to clamor for
it;; that they who complained of its expences and suffer
ings, added two-fold to those evilsby distracting the
country when union Was most necessary—that tiiey who
HOW sneer at the peace, then declared any peace to be
hitler than the ‘wicked and ruinous war?’
It' you know these facts, and it is hardly possible that
you can be ignorant of them, can yoti be so inconsider-
rate as gravely to listen'to these men, and believe them
when they tell you that tliey are the Culy’honest, the only
consistent politicians, the only men worthy of your con
In the election of Mr. Monroe to the presidency, the
people of the United States will exhibit to the world the
spectacle, unparaielled id modem times, of a nation pur

years together which is an argument of more real weight
than appears to have been allowed to it, in the estimate
of the advantages to be deryved from electing this'gentle.
man in preference to any other. It demonstrates the
uniformity of republican government which is a most im
portant object. In this view the.much hackneyed objec
tion of Mr. Moure’s being a Virginian assumes a very
diherent and a favorable complexion. Whatever inter
nal jealousy, even though well founded jealousy, may' ex
ist among ourselves, it is of moment to the United States
in tuair foreign relations, that one course of policy, and,
in a measure, the same class of statesmen should appear 1
to nave a constant ascendancy. It acquires and receives
the confidence and respect of other powers. Suppos
ing Mr. Monroe’s administration to last ei;ht years,
then there will have been four and twenty succes
sive years of the same system of public measures.—
Indeed, throwing aside the four years pt Mr. Adams’
irregular career and attaching the last administrations,
those of Jefferson, Madison and'Monroe, tq that of
Washington, to which twey properly belong- in the series,
notwithstanding the unfounded assumptions of those who
now pervert the name and attributes of the first presi
dent—then the United States of America, with their re
presentative institutions, will have adhered to the same
NATIONAL BANK. f
ft appears fhat the result has not proved the correct
ness of ourcomputation of the amount of subscriptions
to the National Bank. Lexington, Nashville and New-
Orleans fell short of our anticipation, particularly the lat
ter place, where pnly 380,000 4qliars were subscribed,
instead of t,wo or three millions'. The whole amount sub
scribed is said to be about twentyffive millions of dollars,
leaving a deficiency of three millions, to be subscribed
on the second opening of the books at Philadelphia.—
The whole of that deficient amouht, we learn, (from
the Democratic Press) has been taken by Stephen Gi-
Ubd, a wealthy citizen of Pliiladelphia. The subscrip
tion being filled, the Bank goes into effect as soon as the
plates, books, &c. can be prepared, the directors being
elected in the mean time.—Nat. Intel.

When we yesterday mentioned that Mr. Stephen Girard
of this city had subscribed for three millions of United
States’ Bank Stock, and thus completed the whole of the
capital stock authorised by law, we omitted to state that
there were other citizens of Philadelphia waiting to sub
scribe, whose joint lists of stock were greater in amount
that five millions of dollars.
The whole amount of stock held by Mr. Girard in His
own name, is 33,000 shares, equal to 3,300,000 dollars—
The whole amount subscribed in this city is 8,861,600
The subscription to the United States’ Bank is filled.—
One merchant of Philadelphia took the whole of the
shares unsubscribed for, on the last meeting of the direc
tors. That merchant is the democratic merchant Ste
phen Grimm, whose whole subscription to the institu
tion amounts to three millions and one third of a million
of dollars; more than the whole subscription of the city
of Nejj^-York, or Boston, or Charleston, by upwards of a

Tresury department, _
29th July, 1816.
Sir—I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of
your letter, dated the 16th inst. stating that you have
been informed by his Britannic majesty’s consul at New-,
York, that a discrimination between British and Ameri
can vessels disadvantageous to the former, exists at that
port in the charges for pilotage, and the. fees demand
ed by the wardens and at the health office which appears
expressly contrary to .the stipulations contained in a
clause of the second article of the late commercial con
The convention to regulate the commerce between the
territories of the United States and of. his Britannic mi-
jksty, and the act of congress concerning the convention,
Constitute the law of the United States upon the subjects
to which they relate; and you are aware, that instructions
have been issued from this department, to the collectors
of the customs, to insure a faithful execution of the law
in favor of British vessels arriving in the ports of the Unit
It may happen, however, that under the acts of the
legislature of the state of New-York, a discrimination, for
local purposes, such as you represent, may have been in
troduced, prior to the ratification of the commericial
convention, and may not have been since directly an
nulled or repealed by the authority which introduced it.
But in a general view of our. system of jurisprudence, it
has fallen within your observation that thtf provisions of
the state laws are virtually suspended, whenever^they
become inconsistent with the constitution, laws and tra
des of the United States, and that every state codrt as
well as every federal court, and magistrate, must, in
every litigated case, decide accordingly. It is under
stood, indeed, that in relation to the very subject of the
discrimination to which you allude, ami since the ratifi
cation of the commercial convention, a judicial decision
has been pronounced in the city of New-York, upon tile
principle which has just been stated.
You will perceive, therefore, sir, that if there shall at
any time be an attempt to enforce a discrimination be
tween British and American vessels, disadvantageous to
the farmer, and contrary to the stipulations of the com
mercial convention, the party aggrieved will have an ade
quate remedy in that case, as in every other case of an
injury- indicted by a breach of our laws, upon an appeal
to the judicial authority of the country. But however
desirable it always must be to facilitate a faithful execu
tion of the convention, I must add (after having submit
ted your communication to the president,) that it does
notiie within the duties or powers of this department to
regulate or control the conduct of the state authorities.
14lave the honor to be, &c. A. J. Dallas.

The sum total of Federal argument
It is said by the Federalists that Democrats can say,
nothing but “blue light,” in answer to all their arguments.
(We can judge better about that, when they shall con
descend to afford us any thing like argument.] To ex
emplify this they have imagined a dialogue, in which the
Democrat answers every thing with “blue light.” This
is a sprightly kind of satire enough—but is borrowed
trom tlle ^publican papers, which first exhibited it some
years ago. We wffi give ano her specimen, rather more
related to the truth.

It is an old saying, “that when affairs come to the
worst, they will mend.” Without stopping to inquire
into the practical truth of this old saw upon all occasions,
we have only time, at present, to remark, that the. mas
sacre at Nismes Was only called a disturbance—that at
Bona assumes its proper name and character, and ib is
called, what in really was, a horrible massacre. The peo
ple of Europe are permitted to speak more freely on
this latter transaction.
The massacre at Bona has excited a strong sensation,
not only in England, but also ou the continent, where
tlie conduct of die English squadron, and the. non-effica
cy of lord Exmouth’s treaty, have caused observations
not at all honorable to the English government. It is
well known, diat this nest of pirates have been suffered
to exercise their barbarities fok more thun a century up
on every power of Christendom—and it is also well
known that the English fleet could, at any time, have
effectually have suppressed them: that ilia very possible
to check these Barbarians, was lately evinced by the Ame
rican squadron; and it has been openly asserted in the
British parliament, “that only two English seventv-foilr’s
could at aiiy time level to the dust the fortifications of
Till? shameful business, however, seem* at present to
be coming to a crisis, and die English nation, urged ou
by the gallant ?nd decisive conduct of the American
fleet in die Mediterranean, and by the horrible “out
rage,at Bona, seem determined to bring diis vile colli
sion to an end. On tills subject, we are pleased to see
the Courier speak out in indignant language. Speaking
of the non-efficacy of lord Exmouth’s treaty, and the
barbarous Conduct of die pirates at Bono, it says, “Can
we condescend so far as to enter into any more treaties
with the pirates? British vessels have been seized, and
the crews carried into vile captivity; British blood has
been shed, and it cries aloud for vengeance! No co-ope
ration with odier powers on tliis occasion; let this signal
vengeance be inflicted on these barbarians by die English
power alone, &c.”
In perusing these papers we came to an article, the
substance of which we have hitherto remained in total
ignorance, and shows, if it be true, that ihe African bar
barians at Bona acted cn the principle of retaliation.—
“The massacre at Bona (it says) was a retaliation for the
massacre of the Mamelukes at Marseilles, on the return'
of the Bourbons to tfie thrcfiie of France!” We should
like,to have a true history of the massacres at Nismes

HOMAGE TO BONAPARTE
The following is an abstract of the diffuse description
given by M. de Pradt, of the brilliant anjj .^angular
Bonaparte held his state in tU.t city, and tributary mo-
narchs came to bow before tlib-feet of him who is now
a recluse—a prisoner ou a rock iu the mid ocean be
tween two worlds! What a contrast between the exile of
St. Helena, and the former arbiter of Europe!
“Come, you who would form a correct idea of the do*
mination exercised by Napoleon over Europe; who de
sire to fathom the depth of terror into which tlie sove
reigns of the,continent were plunged; come, transport
yourselves with me to Dresden, and there contemplate
that migltty chief at the proudest period of his glory—so
near to that of his humiliation!
“The emperor occupied the principal apartments of the
palajte. He brought with him almost the whole of his
household, and formed a regular establishment. The?
king of Saxony was nothing: it was constantly at Napo
leon’s apartments that tlie sovereigns and their families
were assembled, by cards of invitation from tlie grand
marshal ofihis palace. Private individuals were some
times admitted. I had myself that honor on the day- of
my appointment to Poland.
“Tile emperor held liis levees as usual at nine. Then
vou should havesjtcn in what numbers, what submissive
timidity, a crowd of potentates—mixed and confounded
among the courtiers, and often entirely overlooked by
them—awaited in fearful expectation the moment of ap
pearing before the now arbiter of their destinies! You
should have heard the frivolous questions which the em
peror put to them, and the humble answers which they
ventured to hazard! What Plnedra said of Hippolytus

king among the kings assembled there—tlie king of

and around his person, were collected tlie august gues s
who filled tlie palace of the king of saxony. The throng
of foreigners, of officers, of courtiers—the arrival and
departure of courtiers crossing one another in evet-y di
rection; the mass of people hurrying to the gates of the
palace at the least movement of the einperor, crowding
upon his steps, gazing at him with an air of mingled ad
miration and astonishment—the expectation of the fu
ture strongly painted on every face, tlie confidence on
one side the anxiety on tlie other—all these together
presented tlie vastest and most interesting picture, the
most brilliant and dazzling monument ever yet raised to
the power of Nap ol com- He had now certainly attained

^ WEST’S PICTURE.
We learn that letters have recently been received in this
city from our illustrious countryman, in which he men
tions, that the picture of Christ healing tlie sick, which
he has painted to present to the Pennsylvania Hospital, is
finished, and wifi be sent out as soon as he hears that a
suitable place is prepared for its reception.
A building is now erecting on the hospital lot, fron-
ting'on Spruce street, expressly for tfib purpose of re
ceiving and exhibiting this splendid donation; the pre
sentation of which to this benevolent institution of his
native state, reflects the Jiighest honor on him as a man,
as the execution of the picture does as an artist.
It is said, on good authority, that this is far superior
to the first- picture, which was disposed of for 3000 gui
neas; and has an addition of a maniac and one or two
other figures, which add greatly fo its value. We are
told, indeed, that the author has refused one thousand
guineas for the-exhibition of it. one year at Boston and
New York, pjgqtosly to it* delivery at the hospital.—
We also heifejEGt tlie proprietors of the first painting
have receiv^p^r its exhibition 13,000 guineas, admitance
being a shilling sterling for each visitor.
Not oTily this city and state, but the whole union are
wairing with anxiety for the ^rrival of this splendid gift.
Noble asffhe picture is represented, and invaluable as it
certainly will be to the hospital, the nation looks to it as
an qbjectjOf peculiar interest as the -work'of a Native
Coktrminicated for the -Yew- York Columbian.
