This view of the subject, I am every •vav disposed to adopt, believing, as I do, that l compoits with those great rules or principles, vhich ought to predominate in the formation of lauguage. And although it discords with those above mentioned, who had the honor of framing the first, nomenclature for the world and formed occasion for hut two parts of speech, I venture to think it not without rea son, and am bold to place myselfamong those, who believe that since ideas have accumulat ed, Philosophy has bursted the fetters of tho senses, and requires names for things beyond their utmost revelation For its importance, I dwell one moment on this subject. Language, it must he confessed, 'stiic most powerml helpmate, and instrument of thought; and its perfection must be the con summation of philosophy. IIow misrepresen- taiive of, how false to nature, is the language in common use! "The sweetness of a rose, the heat of fire, the tree shakes in (he breeze,” are fa miliar phraseologies. The apologists of this dialectic defectiveness, indifferent to reason’s prosperity, tell us, that language was formed, when the reason of things were unknown, that *ve are born. »9 under the laws, to its perpetu al heritage,—that it descends to us willithe au thority and sanctions of time—and that inno vation would be dangerous, as the abberra'.ion of political constitutions would be to States. With some exceptions, in this state of things, the philosopher, who moves in the path of his own genius, is compelled, in a good degree, o form a language for himself. This new lan guage, from the peculiarity, which attaches o the very nature of language, at first cannot be understood; all his literary cotemporaries ‘Vrde books to oppose his opinions, which may ie the same with their own, only modified by he prism of the language, lie use3. The age s sp *nt in disputations worse than unprefita file; the rays of public thought having no com-1 mon centre to converge in, disperse and are the donors conspicuously placed vicinal, in ! of the generosity of those who have ccntribu- ale King's Privy Council, wuo .had arrived at the Palace, were assembled in this apa.tment- viz.

Death nf King George the Fourth, and Jlcees- lost—lost to the country, to posterity, and ig-j sion of King William the Fourth!—This intofir tiorarxe flourishes the sceptre, where knowl-jg ence is brought by passengers m the packet edge ought to rule. All for the want ot an adequate fixed language. Language wants u hero for its reformation, that it may reflect the lineaments of nature, and become a true de pository, a public grainary of the country’s thought. For the first time from the begin- j ming of the w-orld, America has framed a code of laws upon the principles of nature, and e- r ectcd a temple to Liberty. It ought to be ing to her to erect one to language, upon the ame principles; and as the bird of Jove is the roud descriptive insignie of the one, since sliere musi be words winged for swiftness and dispatch, the Talaria of his Cup-bearer, ought io be that of the other. The system of Reid is the edifice of language in the iufancy of thought; and that ot Des Cartes will continue unintelligible to the world’s utmost senility. All others may be considered as modifications ot these two. Pni- losophy. therefore, wants a true dialect—one. in which she can every where utter her pre cepts, and be understood. Then a torch would be lighted up in the midst of the world, which would ray the path of time, which is now left dark, time would no longer bury our genera tions under the pile of years; and men, in the most distant epochs, would live familiarly to gether, and cujoy a common existence. Flinging rnyselt more fully into the stream of our subject—it is amusing—almost laugha ble, on account of this dialectic deficiency, to see how extremely timid and cautious Physi ologists are, in selecting terms for the defini tion of life. One would imagine, in their mind’s view, torments were preparing for them, by those, who are to judge ol the execution of their work, for the commission of a sin, they are willing, but know not how to avoid, from llio inaptitude of the instruments of definition. To get rid of the difficulty, they change tin- forms of expression, but in vain. The great and original mind of Bichat oscillated here, and felt all the feebleness of tho mind’s com municating instruments. He generalizes, and says, ‘the totality of the functions constitutes life,’ and its definition is to be sought for in its history. These expressions exclude life from being a substance; and, in logic, places the author in the catalogue with Reid, or the system of com mon sense. Braussais, bold from his genius, whose pen sometimes flashes a most brilliant light, suddenly revealing the hidden images ot truth, leaves the subject mainly in dialectic ;bscurity.

The passengers left the Manchester off Block Island yesterday morning in a pilot boat, with the intention of proceeding to Newport and there taking a steam boat for this city.— They were fallen in with, however, by the steam boat Chancellor Livingston, which took them on board and reached this city with them this morning. They bring only a small letter bag containing a few papers. Among them arc the London Morning Herald of June the 30th and Liverpool papers of the 29lh June and 1st July. As whatever relates to the death of the late King, to his obsequies, or to the proclaim ing ot his successor, is matter of general in terest, we give as copious extracts as our Unfits will permit on these heads. From what we find in the papers of the latest dates, the London Herald of the 30th June, and the Liv erpool paper of the 1st of July, it does not ap pear that tnerc will be any material changes in in the Ministry. VVc give amongst our ex tracts some of tin) rumours on this subject; but the Courier of the 29ih, says those ru mours are unfounded, and slates ‘upon the best authority, that his Majesty took th<- ear- Si' st opportunity of expressing his unlimited confidence in the Duke of Wellington, and hi? determination to give the Government his warmest and most cordial support.” It is said in one paper that the King on hav ing the resignation of Ministers tendered to him, restored the seals, and behaved to the Duke of Wellington in the most cordial rnnn- tiiem.

Ilis Majesty, accompanied by the Duke of Gloucester and the Earl of Errol, arrived at his Palace in St. James’s, about twenty min utes before ten o’clock on Monday morning, June 28th, from his residence in Bushy Park.

The public were admitted into the court-yard towitness the ceremony. A few minutes alter ten o’clock the window of the presence Chamber was thrown open and the King came forward alone, habited in a suit of mourning, and wearing the riband of the order of* the Garler.

Tiinew Constitution ol Colombia, which we have before us, contains 167 Articles, with numerous subdivisions. It was signed by the members of Congress and the Execu tive on the 25th April. Its principle features we subjoin. With the exception of an article in respect to religion, we see not but it is about as Republican and liberal as our own. The Catholic religion is declared to be the religion of the State, and no other form of pub lic worship will be tolerated. All Columbians are equal before thc law. whatever may be their fortunes or pursuits — No offices, honors or distinctions, shall be he reditary. All persons have an equal right to elect and be elected to office, provided they are citizen*, and possess the requisite quabfi- has pleasedi cjUions - After no person can enjoy tne is world the ! ri S hts citizenship who is unable to read and write; in case of habitual drunkards, tiie rights of citizenship are suspended. Each parish sh.dl have a parochical meet ing once in lour years for the choice of elec tors The voters must be inhabitants of the parish, in the exersise of the rights of citizen ship. The electors must possess real estate to The value of $1500, or an annual income from real estate to the value of $200, or an income ot $300 from some useful business or profession, or a salary of $400. It is the business ol the electors, assembled in their re spective provinces, to vote for President and Vice-president, and also choose Senators and Representatives to Congress, for the provin- \ District Chambers, composed of deputies from the Provinces em braced in the respective Districts, who shall be chosen by the electors, and shall have poiv- er to deliberate and decide on all municipal and local affairs oftlie D parlments, and to carry on thc General Government whatever concerns thc interests of the Republic at large. Within twelve hours aticr the arrest of any Colombian, it is made the duty of the Judge to send him a written order, in which the rea sons of his arrest are specified; arid a copy ol thc same shall be given him if hc requests it.— No Colombian shall be compelled to testify against himself, his wife, his progenitors, de scendants, brothers or sisters. No Colombian shall be tried or punished by virtue of an ex- post facto law. No Colombian can be deovi- ved ol his property, nor can it bo applied to any public use, without his consent: unless the general interest, legally ascertained, requires it in; which case, a full equivalent shall be paid. Punishment by tho confiscation of goods is a- bolished. All Colombians have a right to publish their thoughts and opinions by means of thc press, without the necessity of previous censorship, but subject to the responsibility of the law.

Burrin's Case. — We recommend to the at tention of our readers, the article under this head, and thc signature of John G. Poliiill, E?qr. Editor of the Federal Union. It will bo seen that a most shameless effort is making by that pink of purity Featon Grantland, the. Editor of the Recorder, a political enemy o a Mr. PolbilJ, and cne who has lately smarted uuder the severity of his lash, to excite tho prejudice of the public against that gentleman, for an act which entitles him to the lasting respect and gratitude ol thc pcopl i oi Georgia. What if Burritt bo actually innocent, (which Is greatly to be doubted) does that detract from thc merit ot .Mr. Polhdil Did he not. act under imperious circumstance?*, which no man could have resisted, with honor to him self, and justice to thc public? Might not the least hesitancy on his part, to act as he did, havo branded him with eternal infamy, and tempted most horrible cousequ ncos? Could he possibly have acted with more delicacy anil forbearance? And if he had acted iorproper ly. has not the Governor, thc lotendanf, and the other respectable gentlemen, mentioseit by Mr. Polhiil, done tho same? And lives' a man so base, that for the sake of revenge upon a p'.'Txal adversary, would draw down upon Mr Polhiil, the prejudice of thc public, for highly Honorable and virtuous conduct like this? Will the people of Georgia permit themselves to be thus imposed upon and in censed against a man, who, in the painfully trying circumstances in which he was placed, boldly stepped forward to protect their lives an.I property—their houses from the devasta ting torch—their wives and daughters from pollution—and the throats of ihemselve* and their little ones, from rhe fell knife of the murderer? But it may be said that Bur* rnt is not proved to be guilty. Admitted — Neither is he proved to be ioneceut. And im probable as is the crime of which he is accus ed, we unhesitatingly declare it a3 our firm belief, that if there is a man, or monster, of his color, capable of committing it, he is. Iii the first place he is an unprincipled man—suf ficiently so, to say nothing of the numerous suspicions expressed against his pecuniary transactions, to have declared to Adams men, that he was really in favor of Mr - Adams, while he was openly, in his paper, advocating the cause of Gen. Jackson. Ami ia the se cond place, he had no sympathy with or regard for, the people of the section of Country in which he lived Foi we know that he de clared in Milledgeville a few monihs ago, to one who would attest the fact on oath, that ht should thenceforth do nothing that would tend to strenghen his ties to this section of country —that the people were prejudiced against him because he was a notlu rner--and that consequently he looked forward to a time when he should dispose of all his interest here, an. -, leave if. The person to whom he said this, contended with him against the foiiy of his impression with regard to the prejudices oftlie people—a larg portion of them being nothern- ers. and even foreigners, and very many t: them among the most wealthy, influential, dis tinguished. nn.i popular—and deservedly so, And finally, he suggested to him the prudence, while he remained here, of restraining the e>:-- pression of such opinions and views. It is painful to us after refraining, til! now, from any notice whatever, of Burritt, and the Pamphlet, with a view of restraining the al ready hi<*h excitement against a man who might be brought to trial for the alledged of fence—to mention these prejudicial circum stances, which were known to us long before the developemcnt in question; and ncthing but the base attempt to prejudice the public against an honorable man—and for highly praiseworthy conduct, which entitles him to it? respect and gratitude—could induce us to mention them now The people cannot fail to appreciate cor rectly, this insiduous advocacy on the part oi Seaton Grantland of a maD, whom we will ven ture to say, he hated as thoroughly, when here as hc now does his subsequent antagonist Mr. Polhiil. No man can be so blind as not to sec thc object through its flimsey covering And must not every man be sensible of the danger of openly and gratuonsly advocating thc cause of a man like Burritt, so situated as he is.' a- gainst a gentleman of the unblemished honor and integrity of John O. Polhiil. Who will imitate his conduct, in similar emergencies, it censure is to be the reward?—If Burritt is in nocent, it does not at all affect the conduct of Mr Polhiil, in relation to him; and if Seaton Grantland had been disposed to espouse the thc cause o£Burrilt, from a sense of his inno cence alone, hc might have dor.c so more properly, easily, and successfully, without the least reference to the conduct of i\Jr Polhiil or, indeed, while extending to him a just de gree of praise for I is correct and manly con duct. For it must strike very sensibly an un prejudiced mir.d, that he could not have taken a more effectual method of completely ruining the canse of Burritt, innocent or guilty, than thus attempting to sustain fit. by the sacrifice of an innocent and honorable man. The Following just and liberal notice of tho matter is from the Washington JVews, a paper distinguished for thc uniform liberality and justness of its conduct. —oojoo— from the Washington news. Walkers Pamphlet—Seaton Grantland—and John G. Polhiil.—A few weeks back we ex tracted from the “Federal Union” published in Mdledgvillc, by John G. Polhiil Esq an article on the subject of the third Edition of “Walkers Pamphlet.” This article dr?w before the pub lic the communication, which will befoxmflfee;
