I , which were ulKiteil by the motion of Mr. Cambreling, calling for them. This state s ; ment shows the Batik to be in a prosperous coudiliop, and doing a 'good business, as is apparent from the fact that the institution, \ with its capital stock of thirty-five million, of dollars, is receiving interest' upon £SO - 258,825,37, of which, perhaps forty millions I J carry an interest of six per cent. This is I exclusive of the item of “ mortgages,” and.of i f others stated as doubtful, and of the interest i t if any received, on debts due from the State Banks. i *Jj| The amount of specie on hand is large and i the amount of notes in circulation small, vix: i h 5b,091,799, as is ascertained by deducting the amounts of “ notes issued.” The i vfe amount of “ dividends unclaimed” appears ! r O large, from the circumstance of the semi-an- j k S* nual dividend having been declared the •kr- moment before the date of the Statement. i y From the Statement of February 3, 1324, I and that of January 6, 1825, we ascertain 1 I the following, facts, by a comparison of I which we shall arrive at results which will rl fftill better enable us to judge of the coudi c m ot the institution : In Feb. 1824. In Jan. 1825. f Funded debt, 10,874,014 18,422,027 Xot asissued, 11,(571,3 87 1 3,234,842 Not on band, 0,608,215 7,193,043 i Profit and loss and L , coal. int. 271.708 709,758 B With these great advantages of the pre- I sent time over that of a year past, the amount E of discounted bills, of all sorts, is not Icssen 1/ ed two mil lions of dollars. [ [lntelligencer. |)j && | i The pauper-farm, owned by the town of f . Ipswjch, (Mass.) containing 300 acres, pro- IT duced the last year, 70 tons of hay.* It lias upon it 48 head of cattle, 25 sheep, and o u«. then domestic animals, and furnishes sup plies for 50 paupers, by whom tire farm is Hf chiefly cultivated. It is calculated that, in a few years, the only expense to the town j will be the interest of the money paid for ihc farm.” Sale of Town lots in Macon. —The sale of twenty lots in this town took place on Mon day and Tuesday of the present week, at the following prices. S 1,450,950,553,405, 526, r 1,526, 1,205, 8 10; 60Q, 1,100 250, 352, 300, (532, 507, 41 0, 640, 451, 650, and 901. * Making an aggregate of 14,218 dollars. We ( may add as a proof of the increasing impor ' lance of the town, that the first twenty lots, (all of which were choice lots,) sold at about I 1$,00() dollars. Last year forty lots sold at an aggregate qf 8,779. Some of the lots |L were tlisadvantageously situated or they W would have gone at much higher prices.— I The sale was attended by persons from al- E., most every part of the state and many more I business lots could have been sold at high V prices.-— Georgia Messenger.

Whitlaw, was discov ■ ered to be on fire, in the aftkr part of the H hold. The persons on hoard had retired to ■' their births ; and the flames spread with such 01 rapidity, that those who saved themselves K in the boat, had not time to secure any ol ■ their clothing, or even provide themselves I with oars. Three men are missing, and it B is feared they were either suffocated oi ■ drowned. The General Brock laid about l| ,12 miles below the town, completing hei I cargo; and had on board 200 bales of cot- II ton and 900 barrels of turpentine. Capt, I Whitlaw was in town at the time of the ac- K cicle.nt. I '{%& last accounts we had from the brig ■ yesterday morning, was, that she had burnt I down to the water ; and that a lighter was B endeavoring to save all the articles she could I About the same time that the brig was I I discovered to be on fire, we had a tremend ■ pus gale of wind from the East. 'I wo vesseh ■ were drove oh shore opposite the town, hut I were got off on Sunday morning without re ceiring any damage.— Recorder. ■r ■ His Excellency William Eustxs, Govei- I nor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I died in Boston on Sunday Morning last.-- ■ | Between the religious services of the day the I bells of all the churches were tolled. The I duties of the office will for the remainder ol I the year devolve on the Hon. Marcus Mor ■ ton, tlie Lieut Governor. I Beil’s London Weekly Messenger of the ■ ■ 27th December, remarks, that the avowed I purpose of the French Cabinet to keep a por ■ tion of the French Army in Spain, had I been the cause of some division in the Bri- I tish Councils, and that the British Minis K ters were disposed to require the explaua 0,. tipns on the subject. VERY LATE FROM COLOMBIA. ; Charleston, Feb. 25. ; The Sylvester Ilealy arrived last night from Carthagena, and brought papers from 1 thence to the 6th inst. In the Gaceta del Cartagena of the 22(1 January, we find the ARTICLES OF CAPITULATION en tered into on the 9th..of December, by the Commander of the late Royal army in Pertn and the Patriot General Sucre, command ding the liberating army, in the absence of* Bolivar. The articles are liberal and contain. nothing harsh nor unusual in such instru ments —one of them stipulates for the sur-l renderof the port of Callao to the Patriots. ( Bolivar issued a congratulatory proclama tion to the Peruvians, dated at Lima, Dec. 22. We see no mention of him afterwards and the papers say nothing of his health, which had prevented him from leading his troops in person against the enemy. The enemy attacked General Sucre on the 9th December at Ayacucho—they were upwards of 9000 strong and Bolivar’s army not 6000 ; after a conflict of some duration the latter was completely successful, and! the whole Spanish army surrendered to the victors. , On the side of the Royalists, the Com-j mander in Chief was wounded, six 6enerali officers killed and two thousand six hundred j men killed' and wounded. On the side of the Patriots one General officer killed, eight other officers and three hundred men killed —six General officers, thirty-four inferior do. and four hundred and eighty rank and file wounded. We take, these particulars from the official account of the action pub lished by Bolivar’s authority. Thus the war in Peru is at an cud. •seite*- Hayti.—An extract of a letter to the ed itor of the Enquirer, dated at Paris the 4th December, confirms the statement made some time ago in the English papers, that the Independence of St. Domingo would be acknowledged by France. The writer ' says— “ I have just learnt, and in away that ren ders the information every way worthy of attention, that it is firmly believed that a Treaty has been concluded betv/een France and St. Domingo. St. Domingo is to pay . 100 millions ol francs as the price of the . acknowledgement of its independence—part' ■ nominally logo to Spain, as an indemnity : for its portion of the Island—but really to • France, as pay A'c. of French troops in Spain. . The Speech of the King of France in stating t that an indemnity may he given to the end ( grants without increasing the taxes, seems 5 to confirm all this.” Mexican Colton Seed. —Two senfiemen ci ■ of Fayetteville, N. C. obtained a year or ; two ago, a few seeds of cotton from Mexico, 1 which they planted and cultivated separate ly from the remainder of their cotton. The produce Las been a bale of cotton, which, * when brought to market, recently, was pro nounced superior to ,7.11 v received there this season, and commanded two cents per pound ! more than had been previously given, j- — a£tf.e>— We are happy to learn, from an authentic source, that the British Government has very recently communicated to this Government, > through our Minister at London, the iuter- B esting information, that that Government has ’ come to the determination to recognize the Independence of Mexico and Buenos j Ayres, and also of Colombia, reserving a I declaration, as to the latter, until the effect of the contest in Peru be more certainly de p # veloped ; and that this determination will he communicated successively to all the other foreign powers. y The misfortune of having one of his fin gers bit off, is briefly offered by a Western - editor as an apology for the delay in pub e lishinghis paper.
