Few men have to a greater extent been connected with the higher departments ot the drama, or enjoy ed more ol the society ol distinguished li terary men, during the last forty years, loan Mr. Reynolds.

Reynolds was the early associate and li ieml ol Sheridan, Column, Cumberland, Stephen Storaee May or T’opham, Miles Peter Andrews, Mr, Harris, John Kemble, Holm ft, Mrs. Inch" •‘tld, Mias Lee, Mrs. Cowley, and indeed in the successlul dramatic write is, actors • nil critics during Iha t period. 1 lie biblical i) oriel is at present occu pied in the inu’sfig ilimt nl a Hebrew Mull I great antiquity, found in a vessel caplur r eo by the Greeks, which roll has recently been sent to tins country.

I cannot attempt to give yon a description of all the places I have vi-ited. because it , would occupy too much time, and would ex tend far beyond the limits of a letter. I travelled through a part of Judea, Sami , ria, and Galilee; these countries were once delightful; but they are now almost desolate, and oiler to the human mind an awful suiijeci j ol contemplation. 1 spent the Lent and Easter at Jet usalem, and had the consola tion to celebrate Mass on Mount Calvary, I and in tbe Holy Sepulchre, a id at the other principal places in and near the city, where ( inir Lmd suffered during His passion.

Dr. Convvell, Bishop of Phil adelphia, or in his absence to the Rev, Mr. Haro.(l, -o#l7f»- A curious case has lately occurred in the Legislature ot the S ate of New-Yo; k. B> an iniidvertance of the Speaker, a bdl which had passed but two readings, and w hich was! intended to have been seriously opposed on! its Uiirtl reading, received the signature ol the Speaker ol toe House, as though it had! finally’passed dial body, was returned mi die Senate, sanctioned by the signature ofl the Lieutenant Govi rnor, and hud also re ceived she signature < I the Gov rnor, before ■the mistake was discovered. We can easilv cmceive how th■ Speaker could have com mitted the oversight ; but what was die !Clerk about? Tout both Speaker and clerk j should have missed a figure in the case, was (somewhat extraordinary. Not more ao.j .however, it appears to u-, than the decision) which seems to have been made upon the! case, vi. that the bill--Had become aim. without having gone through the constitu ! tional forms. The Governor, Lieutenant! G ivernor, and Speaker of the House of As-| jsemblv.are, ihus, in effect, decided to have iall the Legislative ami Executive power id |the Slate in their hands. The only way in which a member could get at the bill f.r the purpose of opposing it, it appears, was, bv Mitrooui ihga bill torepeal the other bill. It {would have saved trouble,if, on the princi ple id mis decision, he could have persua ded the Presiding Officers of the two Houses with t ie Governor, to sign a rescript annul ling it. A paragraph has been circulated in the newspape.s relative to the Manner in which General Lafayette has invested the sum re cently voted to him by Congress. We are not sui e that it was right to mention this sub ject at all, but as there is a w ide spread and natural anxiety that the gratitude of the na tion should be as effectual as possible, we state with pleasure what we understand to lie the sac sin the case. The beloved guest wished the the national gift to be invested iin tiie national funds, so as to connect his 1 fortunes, as they have been heretofore con 'ji ected, with the whole Union, and therefore ’.asked the opinion of the President of the Bank of the United States as to the best ! !ni.ole of accomplishing that object. The j latter gentleman, aware of the loss which 'i would attend the purchase of Stock at its advanced price, consulted the Board of Di - ; j red ms, who, immediately and unanim ous | v agreed to offer to the general, at par, die amount which he should desire of the re cent four and a half per cent, loan, and also, • to remit his dividends to France, every, ' ipiartcr, w. hunt any charge for agency.—• 1 i ie pro ...sal has been accepted by him, and; i’he result is, th.-.t lie is able to invest his] much better terms .than he could! iobuiin by any other purchase of national stocks at th •ir present rates. W observed some time since certain [criticisms on the conduct ol the secretary id i ie I i ms try m giving the lo in to the Bank.l •I ills official explanations fully prove that he ijacteil properly in so doing; and this leans ; min , shew s that if the institution has en joyc 1 any i.l vantages, its lineruliiy is com-, ’ meiisuiate. e CONSTITUTIONALIST.

" & 11 the new cabinet. i: The curiosity of the Quidnunc* is, of,, course, alive as to the appointinents in the li new ('ahinrt (as it has been called.) Much t speculation is afloat at Washington unon ties t subject. Rumour speaks of flip probability f of Mr. Clav’s being Secretary of State.— | Some of Mr, Adam’s particular friends, it t is said, give out, that Mr Crawford’s friernUbl 1 shall have no cause to be dissatisfied—a"d;v that the administration will he democratic,;?

We presume however,i I 1 that few of them will accept anv princinal I ’ office until (lie tv incudes of the administra- } 1 tion have been better unfolded. ' ’ It is said, that Mr. A. has shown every r disposition to conciliate the feelings of Mr. I Crawford :—that on the very evening of the |j ’ day when he was officially notified of his ] election (Thursday) he addressed a verv ] ’ kind note, to Mr. Crawford, expressing his {wish and hope that he would remain in the [ Treasury Department.

After many ineffectual attempts, he states, to procure those documents, du- ( j ring the periods when General Armstrong* and afterwards Doctor Enstis were at head of the Department of War, he was in\Jf din ed to make one further application in fall of 1823, to the present Secretary, Calhoun, who, with promptness, he addsjH transmitted them to him—-and it is oil these f documents, that his appeal is now predica ted. That the public, may be better enabled to examine these documents continuously, 1 General Hull has compiled them in a phlet, under ilij tide of “Gen. Wifliaw®; Hull’s Memoirs of the Campaign of tb®\ North Western Army, 1812”- -which noftK may he had at many of the Book stored®? throughout the United States. ■/ Although it may readily be admitted, that*, the General Government ought not to bdP*J charged widi remissness, for not being pre-mf pared for war at all points, when' it was de-K dared, inasmuch as the genius of our gor-J’ eminent does not aclmii of the support of*J- Standing Army in time of peace, yet it f not be urged in justification, to shield those# ’ from whom efficient means are derived. thateSc/ an officer, situation was defencelessjHL ‘ should be made the victim to appease th**' clamour of a people, alike remorseless i| j their resentments'as jealous of their honoijv# Without pr fessing to be familiar with thl|| formalities to be observed preparatory toamM| i in conducting the proceedings of a CoubLv [ Martial, the impartial reader of Gen. Hullmy # Memoirs, will no doubt be struck with cen-|k' ( tain deviations from rules, the observance Mb » which are considered inseparable with criip-f \ inn I process, in our Courts of Common Lay.|i'i The deviations to which reference is (nadpi 1 I is in the selection of Gen. Dearborn as ‘Prepjft / ident ol the Court Martial, while the Gert-’ I eral Government were fully apprised of th*' \ relative situation in which he stood to Gen-, * eral Hull, as the negotiator ot the concerning whiclythey had expressed^their y, most u:iou ditied/tlisapinobation,'and ’which 3 j it apj ears was the immediate cause of the-* surrendei of Detroit. The next irregularly®^ iv tJiL-saic O*» ernment and the Court Martial, is the lerence paid by them to the communications made by then Col. Cass, in relation to anaLy f stating bis views as to the cause of ihe seltt rendu- of Detroit, which communication wuHf not only .published in the Government PaAJ per before the official account could Be reii dered by‘ui Commander in Chief of that J * post, but was sent on and actually admitted I imevidence, on the trial of Gen. Hull, as a I document, to convict him of charges prefer-i red—and this document, as Gen. Hull’ 1 i rove's, going to establish facts derived only from hearsay testimony, us the author, Col. Cass, was absent from Detroit at the time of its surrender and did not return for several du % s thereafter. The next glaring irregu larity noticed on the trial, was the. admission v . us the evidence of witnesses in the presenceM if each other—-the subaltern after listeningSl j lo the testimony of his commander or supe-t rior officer, being called on for Ins narration is to facts. An appeal to the commoirsense... | of the most inexperienced, is the only comJfl inent necessary on these points. * y As it is believed the public are generally * ignorant of the claims of Gen.
