revenue, which was supplied by a loan.
1 here will lie this year a greater defici
ency : in what manner shall it he suppli
ed ! By another loan? or by at once
meeting the. occasion, and submitting to
a system of internal t.ixation, of moderate
amount, and judiciously distributed ? We
have no d-mht that, though it may be a
subject for debate, the first course will
ultimately be taken. It is easy to bor
row, and the people scarcely know when
they are run in debt. It is unpopular to
lay taxes, and more so to collect them.
In this particular, governments are a-
bout as provident as individuals. This
year they have full pocke.ts ; they emp
ty them in the gratification of pleasures,
or at best the supply of want*, imagina
ry at first, but which become real by in
dulgence. The next year the income
lessens, from causes beyond their con-
troul—perhaps from a relaxation of at
tention and application : if it is too squill
to fulfil existing engagements. What
then ? Why, borrow. The year fol
lowing, the income is still less, and ex
penses increasing rather than diminish
ing. What then ? Borrow more ; and, if
the money were to be repaid, it would
he an admirable plan. But, sooner or
later, when you can borrow no longer,
you must provide for the payment of the
debt, which it would have been fir wi
ser never to have incurred. To this ge
neral remark there are certainly excep
tions. Money may be wanted for an im
portant object in one year, and a loan for
that purpose is not only justifiable, but
prudeut. To make it so, however, you
must be certain that the income of suc
ceeding years will be sufficient to pay
the interest, and gradually to extinguish
the debt to be contracted. We do not
know that it is in the power of Congress
arcsent to settle the question, in what

05* The expense of the Queen’s trial is
estimated to cost the British Nation upwards
of a million of dollars! If she hi found guil
ty, it is doubtful whether the government
will venture tivenforce strictly tile operation
of the penalties against her—under tile ap
pearance of clemency, ministers will perhaps
make a virtue of necessity, and avoid the
danger of civil war by making with her, in
behalf of their royal master, the best terms
they can. The Norfolk Herald gives the
following as information received hy the ship

« The King had taken up his abode at
Brighton, and was apprised of what was pas

have it from a respectable source, that His
Majesty is very much alarmed at the strong
current of popular indignation which threa
tens to overwhelm him ; and that he has a
Frigate and two Sloops of War ready at his
call, to lake him to Hanover, if it should
come to the worst. The people, however,
are told through the papers, that he only
meditates a trip of pleasure in one of his

bodi/ pruned for the hing” The Editor of
the Democratic Press considers this the
most important article he has met with on a
careful perusal of British papers, lfthe King
of England has introduced Hanoverian troops
as “ a personal body guard,” it is conclusive
as to the disaffection of the native troops,
and that disaffection will he greatly increased
among the troops, nod become universal a-
mnng tire people, when they see their King
surrounded by “a personal body-guard” of
Hanoverians. It would seem to us, that
England is agitated to tin- centre. It is im

Sept. 20.—At four o’clock, yesterday af
ternoon, Governor M'.Vuir, met both Hou
ses of the General assembly and delivered
this following Speech :
Fellow Citizens of the Senate,
and of the House if Representative!.
Having been notified by you that I have
been called by the voice of my Fellow Ci
tizens to fill the office of Governor of the
Stale of Missouri, it becomes my duty to en
ter upon the discharge ofthe arduous aud
important duties winch the Constitution of
our slate has assigned to that Magistrate.
In doing so 1 cannot hut feel the greatest
diffidence and emburrissnient, arising as well
from u want of experience in the atiuirs ofthe
ml administration, .is from the present im
portant political crisis of our country. Re
lying, however, much upon the aid which 1
shall receive from the Representatives of a
tieral and enlightened people,and above ah,
relying upon tim protection of that Supreme
Being who watches over ind directs the des
tinies of nations, i feel encouraged in enter
mg upon the arduous task before me.
I congratulate you, gentlemen, upon tin-
happy change which has taken place m our
political affairs. From the dependent condi-
i of a Territorial government, We have
passed into a sovereign 6a independent slat
We have formed fur ourselves a constitution
which though perl'.aps not free from tin nn
perfections incident to ull human institutions
does tumor to the character and intelligence
of our infant state, and gives us every reason
to expect that we shall without further diili-
ultv tie admitted into the federal union.
Much yet remains to be done to ensure vo
ourselves the perfect enjoyment ul'ah the. in
estimable blessings of sell government, and il
becomes us, in the measures which vve sliai
udnpt, to put the new government into ope
ration, to act with a degree of prudence and
deliberation, comporting .ith the impor
tance of the duties to be performed, as t i
future character and prosperity ufoui couu
try in a very great degive,depends upon tin
measures ol the first General Asceiubly.
Yon will have the Constitution laid liefor-
you, which points out the principal subjects
of immediate legislation, to put the ne.vv go
vernment in operation.
It is deemed advisable to remind you that
the election ot President and Vice President
ofthe Gulled States is approaching, and that
il will lie necessary to make provision
saunas possible for the election of thr. ee

From a file of Sierra Leone Gazettes to
July 1, 1820, received at the office of the
Freetown, July I.
With sincere sorrow we have to no
tice, that the melancholy reports ofdeaths
and diseases raging among the Ameri
cana, who proposed forming an establish
ment in the river Sherbro, are, alas !
but too true.
Mr. Roughen, a young gentleman who
had accompanied tlie expedition as a vo
lunteer, for the purpose of following his
studies, under the cure of -he late Rev.
Samuel Bacon, arrived here on Monday,
and reports that the whole ofthe white
people attached to that expedition, a-
niounting in number to twelve, are dead,
(himself excepted) ; the loss among the
colored people has been also very great ;
twenty six had died in the whole, (white
and colored people.) The cause ol ilie
diseases is attributed to the unhealthy
spot offered to the expedition for a tem
porary accommodation by Mr. Kizell, oi
this Colony, during the palavers with the
Native Chiefs—these were protracted
to an unusual length, and it will surprise
our readers to hear, that the Chiefs
were made to declare. “ that they would
hold on palaver with white men."
It appears that the government ofthe
joiut expedition, viz. that originally un
der the charge ofthe Rev. b. Bacon,
intended to form an establishment for the
J reception, education, and maintenance of
1 such Africans as should be rescued from
mg trie complexion of lard.
If the lurd >» hen tried and cold, is hard

I know of nothing in the culti(\g up the
meat that deserves much attention, ex

an equal lime for curing, so that those
who cut many ofthe rib* with the shoul

whilst the ribs require but two ; I there
fore cut the shoulder as short as possi
ble, and the middling, of CMgse, as long
us it admits.
To every 1000 lbs. of meat 1 put 3
pecks of salt, and one third or half a
pound ofsalLpetre. I prefer mixing half
ground alum salt with Liverpool, for ie
very soft weathqr the Liverpool will rua
off most too quickly, and. in very dry,
cold weather, the alum is too tardy, i. e.
not ultimately to cure, but for the time
allowed by me,—so they correct eack

on, and then sprinkled thickly on the cut
