FRIDAY, JUNE 3. 1825. j
We learn by private letters from Mil- ‘
ledgeville that the Legislature will proba- 1
bly continue in session for a fortnight yet (
to come. The Territory lately acquired
will no doubt be distributed by Lottery,
and a Bill, very little differing from other
Land Lottery Bills, has passed to its third j
reading in the House of Representatives
an attempt will however, be made to alter i
its features, by providing for considerable >
reservations, and proportioning the price of'
the Grant to the value of the Land. The;,
trial of the Fraction-Selling Commissioners \
is proceeding. The case of Loving is un-l|
dec investigation and the evidence is said
to be strongly against him. The Commit
tee on the state of the Republic is busily
engaged in tracing the causes of the mas-!
sacre of MTntosh and his friends, and itj
is thought that this dreadful affair will be;
proved to have arisen from the instigation!
of white men. Chilly M'lntosh with ai
number of chiefs are at Milledgeville, and!
waiting, it is said, that communication from!
the President which will determine thei
course they shall pursue They are calm,
resolute and patient. If the government
' interfere, as it should, the ends of justice
may be attained, and they will be satisfied ;
but if, as some humane editors suggest, the
Indians are to be left to themselves and
suffered to adjust their own disputes—we
may look for the strife of contending Chief
tains and the horrors of savage warfare up
on our borders. We do believe that the
President will obey the dictates of pru
dence and wisdom, and (hat the expectations
of the friends of the murdered M'lntosh,
L as well as those of the freemen of Georgia
will be fully realized.
We are happy to say that our letters also
inform us that Governor Troup’s official
conduct is greatly approved in every quar
ter, and that his re-election in the fall may
be confidently expected.
We are glad to see that the President
♦ manifests a disposition to investigate char
ges against officers, without being govern
ed in his opinions by the decision of others.
In the case of midshipman Van Dyke, Mr.
Adams has promptly reversed the judgment
of a Court Martial and restored the officer
to the service from which he had been
expelled. We hope the practice will con
tinue, and that the President will decide
for himself—at least in all cases where
the reputation of public servants may
be concerned. Indeed no man can per
form the duties of chief magistrate with
honor or propriety, whose opinions are
moulded by any secret adviser or member
of his Cabinet. We have adverted to the
case of midshipman Van Dyke, merely for
the purpose of expressing a hope that a cane
decided by Mr. Adam’s predecessor may
be brought up and reviewed. It is the case
of a Georgian, whose public services and
jbility arc generally known—and if, as has
been asserted, Mr. Monroe adopted the
opinion of the Attorney General without
reading the evidence upon which it wan
founded, it will but bo an act of justice on
the part of the President, uow to consider
the evidence of both sides, and the more so
because tire opinion of .the Attorney Gene
ral is represented as mistaking that evi
dence in several essential .particulars. It
is certain that the decision was made at a
time of great excitement—when the Secre
taries of Mr. Monroe were almost quarrel
ing for the succession in his very presence
arid when their feelings must have been
communicated in some degree to him. The
present calm presents a favorable opportu
nity to correct the errors—if errors there
were, of that period.
Let the present Administration be judged by its measures."
This sentiment of Mr. Crawford uttered
at a dinner given him in Lexington, js every
where admired for its patriotism and mag
nanimity. It contains in truth, the princi
ple by which the Republicans who suppur
ted Mr. Crawford are governed. They en
ter into no coalitions with the friends of Gen.
Jackson or any body else in opposition to
the administration which, so long as its mea
sures deserve it, will meet their support.
When however the President and hi» Ca
binet shall vary their course from the cli
sections of the Republican chart—they will
?*ot fail to point out such deviations and
condemn them as errors; and this
have been their conduct had Mr. Crawlord 1
himself been the President. J
Major Andrews, of the War Department, j
(says the Charleston Patriot) passed through ]
Fayetteville on his way to Georgia, on the
24th inst. It is expected that he has been
deputed to visit the Indian territory, to as- !
certain the causes and extent of the late dis
FLORIDA LAW) SALES. '
We leant by a gentleman from Talahas- ]
see, who attended the government sale of j
land on the 16th instant, that the number
of bidders wassmall. The purchasers were j
mostly from the neighboring states, whose
intention it was to become actual settlers. —i*
The lands disposed of, although only the!]
best were taken, were at little above the*,
government price. Thejr are represented |
to be excellent. The inferior lands were ,
put up, but no offer was made. (

The illustrious Humboldt, says a Liver-
pool paper, is the president of an associa- j
■tion for opening a communication between (
jthe Atlantic and Pacific. There are two 1
(associations, totally unconnected with each ]
(other for opening communications between
jthe two Oceans, The association of which
1 Humboldt is president, proposes to cut a
.ship canal by the Isthmus of Tchuantepe,
jin the state of Mexico ; the other intends to
iperform a similar work by the Luke Nicar
agua in the state of Guatimala.
On Saturday the 22tl ultimo a man bvthe
i name of Gunnels, of this District, was inur-j
, dered by his step brother, Aaron Carter,'
while asleep, in the most shocking and bru
tal manner. It appears from a brief ac
' count given of the transaction by a friend,
they had, had some previous dispute, and
. heated by the intoxicating draft the former
, fell asleep. The latter seizing this advan
tage, deliberately knocked out his brains
with a chib. We arc further told that upon
• questioning Carter he had the effrontery not|
, only to acknowledge himself the perpetra-i
l tor, but added he would do it again, was it!
to do over.—He is safely lodged in jail at
Edgefield, to await the justice due so dis
• graceful and fiend-like transaction.

tains the following paragraph.
•• The edition of a Selection of tne H arks of English classic
Authors, printed by Didot, published by Galignam, n.id edited
. by Mr. tVashinglun Irving, promises to be a good speculation,
1 he habit ot reading, and even speaking English is quite the or
der of the day ; and the work is what you call, in London, well
got up, and much cheaper than the English editions. But eve
, ry body is surprised that Mr. Irving should put himself at the
bead of such an enterprise. An American it; Paris,.editing Bril
, ish Works, is a sort of anomaly amounting here to a positive
scandal. Such a life, it is said, is neither dignified nor patriotic.

r We learn by the brig Margaret-Wright,
. captain Chamberlain, arrived at this port
, yesterday from Campeachy, that great re
juicing took place in that city for three suc
cessive days, all the troops were out, and
’ firing 100 gun? each day, in consequence of
; Great Britain having acknowledged their in
. dependence. Capt. C. informs that he took
, a part of the troops from Alvarado to Cam
peachy, who were received with all possible
politeness from the government of Yucatan;
i the general and officers gave up their com
| missions quietly. Gen. Santander and the
, principal officers were given high offices un
der government. All was quiet and the
people-atisfied. The report of an expedition
’ fitting out at Campeachy to invade Cuba,
i proves to be untrue. [Advocate. |

1 Alkany Theatre.— The new theatre at
t Albany was opened, for the first time on
. Wednesday evening last, under the man
agement of Mr. Giltert. The Albany Daily
Advertiser, gives a long description of tlie
house, and ot its internal constiuction and
i ornaments, which appear to reflect great
• credit on the architect and builder. It is
. lib teet deep, 60 feet wide, and 40 feet
, high. The prize address, written by Thomas
VV ells, Esq. of Boston, was delivered by
Mr. Bairett; after which, the two pieces,
“ Laugh when you Can,” and “ liaising the
Wind,” were performed before a full and
1 fashionable audience. With the exception of
, Mr. and Mrs. Barrett, and Mr. and Mrs.
Stone, we do not observe any names in the
company of much celebrity; but it is said
that Mr. Booth, and, (as Major Noah calls
her,) tire “ beaulitu] Mrs. Henry,” are en
gaged and several vocalists of decided tal
ents. The orchestra is spoken of as not in
terior to any in the United Slates; and it
is nut doubted, that the establishment, un
der Us present management, will have a sen
sible effect in improving the taste of the
citizens of Albany. [Post.
GENERAL UA&HINGTON. i
As out all cHurts tor this distinguished
man have rather been suspended for some!
time past, ami our national devotions run
ning warmly in another channel, I do not I
know whether an anecdote of him would 'I
just at this time, be attended to ; but, sup
posing the national feeling will soon be re
turning back toils sober senses, I will ven
ture to relate it. It was given to the writer
by an old and very respectable citizen, now
no more—one who was intimately acquain
ted with the General, and the fact:
Many years ago, and sometime before the
revolution, Colonel Washington and his la- „
dy was in the habit of visiting 4 watering
place in Virginia, and at which place there '
was a great resort of company, among wliom
there always were poor, sick, and lame peo- i
pie, who came to seek the benefit of the wa- '
ters, with very slender means. An ac
quaintance with the situation of these peo
ple, was the constant but secret care of col
onel Washington. It was observed by the
relater of this anecdote, that they drew fresh
bread every day, without money. Curiosi
ty led him lo enquire of the baker how he
expected to get paid ; he hesitated, and said
he was enjoined not to tell; that the very
people that eat the bread did not know who
paid for it. This but increased his curios
ity ; when with strong injunctions of secre
cy, he whispered in hi» ear, he received his
| pay from colonel Washington; that it had
always been his practice when at Bath, and
that the bill was a pretty considerable one.
Ji proof that a man can be his own
grandfather. —There was a widow and her
,daughter in-law, and a man and his son.
The widow married the son, and the daugh
ter the old man; the widow was therefore, ,
mother to her husband’s father, conse- ■
■ quently grandmother to her own husband.
They had a son to whom she was great
grandmother; now as the son of a great
grandmother must be either a grandfather
or great uncle ; this boy was therefore his
N.B. This was actually the case of a
boy at school in Norwich.
A discovery has recently been made, in
|an Abbey of Benedicine friars in Italy, of
jaeveral musical instruments, which have
been found to belong to the ages of the Low

of ivory, with strings of gold wire mounted
with plusters of diamonds in the form of a
rose. There is also an antiguc labour-pipe,
