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.

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.

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.
