Congress of the United States Thursday, Nov. 12. AFier the prelentaiion of various petitions, and the receiving of several reports, all of which were either of a private nature, or of ‘inordinate im portance, the House rtfolved itfelf into a committee of the whole Mr. Ball'd in the chair, on the report of the con mittee of EleCbons. on the conceded election of William M‘Crcery, when a long and imereil ing debate ensued. until the ui'ual hour or adjournment. MefTrs. Kindly, St urges, Smilie, j. Clay and F1 lie. advocated and MdLs. Sawyer, Randolph and I). K, Wil liams opposed the report, which is in favor of the fitting member. 1 The committee rose, reported pro* grefs, and obtained leave to lit again. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 6. It is observable that the prefidsut in his late message, speaking of the attack upon the Chesapeake, states thac “ several of her crew were killed, and four taken away.” How does this statement com port with the repeated publications which have heretofore come from the govern ment, in which the men taken away were uniformly called, with an emphasis, “ the three seamen.” Great pains were taken to ascertain the nativity of “ the three? 1 and the proofs wete published by the go vernment. But not h word was heard of auy more. Mr. Jefferson, in his procla mation, did not mention the number of men taken, but asserted that they had been previon ly ascertained to be “ native citizens of the United A’tates.” To prove this as ei tion, depositions were published respecting the nativity of three, two only, of whom turned oyt to be natives of the Untied A cates, Now the president in forms us that four were taken cut, but no semblance of proof has been offered to show that the fourth comes within the de scription g.ven in the proclamation. On die contrary upon the trial at HalihMC, he waa proved to be a native Briton, adc- Ac 1 ter and. a routineer. We blush for the honouref our coun try when we see siich shufStng, such pre varication in the cabinet of the nation. Mr. jstfVrsoc ac first perfectly well knew the number of men taken ; .and if any thing had be^n-previously ascertained up on the subject, it had beer, ascertained that the men were tic*, that is, were not all, native cittz ns. indeed, this L not the worst of it. The words of the proclama tion are, speaking of the enormity of the outrage : “ That no tcircuinstance might ** she wanting to mark its character, it nad *’ been previously ascertained that the *■* seamen demanded were native cniziens *• of the United States.” But upon a fur ther investigation of the matter it has been mcontrovertiblv established that none of the torn .demanded were native citizens of the United Stale*, except Wtn. Hill, born in Philadelphia, wiio voluntarily en tered on board t ie Ht.lifax at Antigua, And who was not one taken out. Tl>e iron demanded, were dese. ters from ,tbe Halifax : namel) Kichard Hubeil born in Liverpool, Henry .Saunders, born -at Greenock, Jeakin Ratl'crd, born in London, George North, born at Kinsaie, .and William Hill, bom at Philadelphia.— These hau all entered on board the Che sapeake ; but part of them had deserted from her previous to the attack. Upon .searching her only one of the teamen de metnded was found on board, to wit, jen |kin Katford ; but three uea nA demanded who had deserted from the Melumptfs, ‘Were found and taken away. At will be seen, therelor , thac the government, mi -4erpre.cncc of ejtabl shing the tacts stated in the proclamation as to the nativity o: the seunun demanded, have exhibited prools of he nativity of ihese men who were never demanded ; but have been a* -f.ilen as tlit grave as to the only one taken who had been demanded. Indeed, so cautious have their papers been, in speak- 1 ing upon Lite subject, thac the first iatelli. pence which we received respecting the only seaman demanded, we icceived not from our own government, but iioui the Airitish. Wruc credit can the government expect to have attached 10 their official state ments, when they cany upon their very face such evident marks of prwartca. t. y n ! U. b.

B rnadint, wiu.jn a lew miles of Manilla. The A’pa* ni.udi had nearly succeeded in running the ship ashore, when she was taken aback by a oi which captain Ilutuiu na. mediately rook the advantage, and the Raphael soon found herself under the ice of the Carolin-.

We are con cerned tosav, chat the loss on hoard the Caroline, war seven men wounded, of •vhotn one has since died. Oir brave tars however, will be consoled in their suffering? bv th booty thev have acquir ed, the St. A’rphue! havintr on board 500, 000 dollars, and to the value of 500,000 more in bars of copper. A'he sailed from Luna arid was bound to Manilla ; and is said to be tile ship, formeily called the Nancy Grab, which was built in this coun try. Aince her capture sOe was severr.l limes separated hv bad weather from the Caroline, tor a day or two together : how fortunate then it is that she was n-.c re taken, hut th tt she should have arrived in safety in a British port.

As loon a> the jews had all gone oui, their houses were appraised by the Emperor’s agents at about one eight ot their real colt and value ; which futn was nnme diaiely paid them, and their houses ta ken pofkliinn of by the Moors.
