LIUERTT IS OCR MOTTO 'D TRUTH QUR GUIDE to decide ; that a pidge ought never to leave the United States, 1 or he drav n from Ins official fftuaticn, and leave an undue proportion of its duties to be performed by the remainder of tne bench; that no man ought to hold two offices under the fame government, particularly where they were impoHant ; that in cafe of the impeachment of the prefident of the United States, the chief juftice was to prcfide, and there was no ptovi fion in the conftitution to hip ply the vacancy in his abfence ; therefore if an impeachment was to take place, it mult remain un decided until the chief juflicc could be lent for; that molt of the (late confutations had pro vihons lo prevent their judges Golding other offices; that a federal judge might, as things Band now, accept any other appointment, either from a Date, or horn the United States or even a foreign power; that the grand convention which formed the ccnftiiution, by refuting to join the judges in the revifiona ry power with the prefident, was a fufficient proof or their opi iTions, that they meant the judges to have nothing to do with the formation of the laws or treaties : that the not prevent ing the judges holding o'hu offices was clearly an omiffion in the conftitution, which the legiflature had an undoubted right to re£tify by law ; for U did not go to pn vent the preft dent's right to nominate a judge, , but only to declare that if a judge accepted another appointment he could not longer continue a judge ; a condition, a limitation, the legiflature hsd mofl unques tionably a right to annex: that as the lives and fortunes of our citizens depended on the pure and uninfluenced adminiflratiou of the laws in our judicial courts, the laws refpe&mg tha: department could not keep too jiricl an eye over the conduß and unbiaffed decifions 0} the judges: that it ‘ could by no means be confidered as a jefh6lion on the Prefident roi appointing Mr. El/worih, bccaule he certainly had a light, as the law now (lands, to do fo, if he thought Mr. Klfworth the frtteft man in the United States : that the houfe every day repealed laws, and altered thofe of pieccding hgiflatures, without confidering : it as a revolution ; and that it the legifialuie now thought pro per to lay it was bell to keep the judges at home and confine them to their judicial duties, and the thing was right, it would not be c jnft dv'ccUas a refaction on him tor having fent a judge abroad. 1 hat for the honor and the ta lents o f our country, it wasal ways to be hoped, that more than fix men might be found capable ol dilcharging any du ties their country ftiould re quire. Several other arguments c qually impreffive were urged, which wc could not colled. The debate was lengthy, Mr Ro/s, Mr. Dexter, and Mr. Read oppofed the bill prin cipally on the ground of its bein % unconftilutional! and inex pedient; and that it would ope rate as a renfurc on the prefident of tire United States, for having nominated a judge, and the fenate for having confirmed him ! A gain ft the bill— 14 For it 12 'I his being the prfi time this quefiion was decided upon in the fenate, and there being only a majority of two, we entertain ft l ong hopes that the fenfe of the conn try on this fubjedf, and the per fevering indnflry of the friends of judicial reform, will at no diftant day, induce the legiftatute to cftabiilh this falu tary regulation. In the debate on Thurfday lafl, upon the bill concerning the judges, we remarked, that Mr. Lawrence of New York, who had on a foirncr octafion fpoken in favor of the piinc:pie of the bill—was on this abjent. CONSTANTINOPLE, November 5 r. Intelligence of a very diftaf trous kind has been juft: received from the Grand Vizier, Ue took fix months to march from Scutari to Damas, and the con tributions that he rafted f#r the fubfiftcncc of his army, have alienated the minds of the inha bitants of A ha'Minor, from the government of the Forte. W hen ihfe news reached him at Elvan, that the Tuiks were defeated at Aboukir, nearly one half of his army difbanded on its way to Aleppo. The French general Kleber diipatchcd to El-Arift# a body of troops, to protect that place, and prevent the pafLge of the Deflart. The Grand Vizier transferred his camp to the ut moft cultivated part of Syria, at the beginning of the Deharts of Egypt. lie remained 15 days, making every p:eparation and collecting camels and Hems, to enable him to traverfe the Deflart eighty leagues in extern. GeAcral Kleber having been imorrF%&. .of* preparations reinforced the French advanced pu.ntl at Ll-Arifot, repaired to that place in per fen, and on the 22d October marched forward af the bead of 2000 dragoons or I rench hullais, and a regiment ot a 1000 men mounted on dromidaiies, with foot foldiers behind them. He a!fo took with him a great number of light lu id pieces, and having made a circuit in the DeHart, arrived in f ,hc ! car of the enemy's camp at bieak of day, nearly about the fame time when a corpsof 10,000 infantry had arrived at the well of Schabiah, about a league ai d a had cillancc fu>m the camp. The grand Vizier thus unexprft edly attack'd could not make a long rchflancc; and the Frcntli • ook the camp, a part of his baggage, and levcral l{*o|Lnti pnloners. i he grand Vizier immediately retreated with the remains of his anny towaids Damas, which is 10 days march from Gaza ') he French have levied vciy la)ge contsibutions in the pro vince of Gaza, particularly in 011 and tobacco, which arc very much wanted in Egypt. 'I hey have left a Hrong garnfon in Kl-Arilc h, and a number ol en r,inccts to complere the woiks. 1 hey have alio collcdfr d at that place near 10 000 Turkifh pri soners, who are all conßantly employed in finifhing the works. I lie intelligence has caufcd a gieat conflernation among the members of the Divan, and in creased the number of thofe at taclicd to the French. It is thought that tin- Grcnd Vizier • will be difgraced, and no hopes aic entertained at ConfLntino pie of reconquering Egypt. LON DON, January 2. United Irijhmen in PruJJia. A gentleman of Dublin, who was deputed by the government to accompany the L’nitcd Infh men, lately tiaiffportcd to the PruHian dominions, to the amount of about 800, gives the following account of their ic ception in that country, which differs materially from that pub lilLed in the papers. “ On their Griding at Fmb den, they wer* attended by a commifiary frem the king, who infotmed tin*r\ they weie to be icceived as fub efts, not as Haves; that cadi man fbould have fix weeks pay in adv mcc in the- P uf(ian militia ; Inch as had trades fhould be at liberty to withdraw and fettle in any part of his majeßy's dominions they thought fit, and luch as choufc to remain, Iliould 1 [No. 6G.
