On motion of Mr. Cuthbert, the House took up
the following report, to wit: The committee to
whom was referred the petition of Nathaniel B.v
con, Report, That on investigation, it appears
from the accompaning documents and other evi

character of Nollianiet Bacon was unblamable ;
and that his subsequent conduct has b»cn distreet,
honorable *i.J virtuous. The committee AKYply
mourn the melancholy fate of this unhappy young
man, who, in consequence of one rash act. has
been deprived of his liberty, is wasting the bloom
of youth in the gloom of a prison ; and must bear
even to the grave, the indelible infamy of peniten
tiary confinement. But they are constrained to
state, that to pardon his offence, or even to miti
gate his punishment, is not w ithin the constitution
al power of the legislature. To pardon offences,
less'than treason oi murder, is the attribute ol
the executive. They therefore recommend that
I the petition of Nathaniel Bacon be transmitted to
his excellency the governor. And the said re

on the question to agree thereto, the yeas and

l.idicm uYVtt'S.—Extract of a letter from an in.
feilige; « gentlemen at Fort Hawkins to the editor,
luted December 2 :—“ Captain Stallings arrived
here this morning in sgven day* from Fort Scott,
and brings letters from Gen’l Gaines announcing
a second skirmish with the Indians. The detach
ment consisted of 300 men under the command
of Colonel Arbuckle. They were attacked about
12 miles from Fort Scott by a party of Fowl-Town
and Osouchee Indians, supposed to be about 100,
and had one man killed, and two wounded, one
dangerously. The Indian loss was supposed to
be 8 or 10. They captured some cattle durin
the flight, which were retukeu in the towns lying
about 8 miles from Fort Scott. The detachment
then retreated 4 miles, and threw upbreast works,
The effectivo force at Fort Scott is about 800 to
1000 men. No doubt is now entertained of the
hostile intention* of the Indians. Capt. Stal
lings thinks it is 220 miles at least from here to
Fort Scott. A|l this through a pine barren, and
mostly new roads, or perhaps none at all.”
Bv a gentleman who arrived ill town at a late
hour last night, direct from Fort Hawkins, the
editor received from an officer of the staff the fol.
lowing letter, dated December 8:—“ Captain
S. Thomas from the Agency states that a foraging
party of 10 or 12 men from Tort Scott had been
cut off, and that a constant and tremendous firing
was heard during the night in the direction of Fort
Scott. This is supposed to have been an attack up
on the breast-work thrown up by Co!. Arbuckle,
at Four Mile creek. A Mr. Bernards, from-lav
down on Flint river, savs one of the settlers in
the neighborhood of Fort Gaines has been recent
ly murdered by the Indians. On account of the
disturbances about there, and on that rout, the ex
press dispatched from this place Ins gone by wav
of Fort Mitchell, (higher up the Chatahouchy,)
and is not expected here before the last of the
week. A direct express, however, is expected
from gen. Gaines, which will doubtless give a de
scisive tone and direction to affairs here. Some
of the friendly Creeks, expected to co-operate
with the army, have collected at Fort Mitchell,
under the command of their distinguished war
rior M’lntosh, some of whom it is said will pro
ceed direct for Fort Scott, and some join us at the
Agency. Major Muhlenburg who sailed iu
schooner with about 50 men and considerable
public and private property from Fort Montgome
ry. (upon the Alabama,) for Fort Scott, near two
months ago, and has not been heard of since. It
is supposed lie has been lost at sea, or ascending
tills c untry : to w rite an account of the Life, La
bors and Death of that famous writer Thomas
Paine, and perhaps, to collect and republish the
whole ol' Ids writings complete in a cheap furin,
and with some explanatory notes to the Rights td
Man particularly. I am here now upon the spot.
I have within my reach all the means of correct
information. 'There are only Long Island Sound
and a very few miles of land between me and the
spot where he died. Justice to his memory, jus
tice to the cause of freedom, justice to the coun
try th»t gave him birth, justice to his friends on
both sides of the Atlantic, demand at my hands an
earnest endeavor to perform this task in a man
ner worthy of the subject.

The 55th number of the Edinburg Review, con
tains an article on the character and writings of
Dr. Franklin, which is, in its spirit, highly flat
tering to tiic pride of Americans. The character j
istics of this great philosopher’s mind and dispo
sition are described with singular felicity and dis
crimination. The writer of the article in ques
tion appears to have studied the temper and geni
us of our country, in that spirit of candor and li
berality due to truth—to have fiyrly and fully ap
preciated his singularly calm, acute and practical
understanding—his philanthropic views—tlie ex
quisite justness of his moral tact—his unrivalled
powers of observation, and ready apprehension of
the fitness of things—that clearness of view with
which .•; discerned the true aspect of circumstan
ces, both in the moral and natural worlds, and
that happy philosophy which enables him, at all
times to draw from them the soundest deductions.

commenting on the Ameri..in navy, says “ It is
laughable to see the anxieties of the British about
the American navy. The “ bit of striped bunt

genius, and he thinks it constantly says to him
“ we meet again at Phillippi.” But John, unlike
Brutus, is very loath to say “I’ll meet thee there.”
