Toe following Report accompanied the
draft of the constitution.
. The committee who were appointed to
prepare and report a const lotion for the!
government of the Society, have perform

They regret that upon a subject of so
much importance as that committed to
th'jpir charge, they have had so little light-
It is their belief, however, than when the
constitution herewith submitted shall have
been revised by the Society, it will an-i
awer every purpose of carrying into ef
fect the laudable objects of the institution. I
It will be perceived that the committee
have contemplated the establishment of
Societies auxiliary to this, in the different
counties of the State; the utility of which
your committee cannot suppose will be
doubted. And they earnestly hope that;
the view 6l of the member sos this Society
may not be disappointed—but that their!
objects will diffuse themselves through the
State ami produce a commensurate influ
ence, that will give a tone to public opin
ion and banish this bloody custom from
Experience has taught us that municip
ol regulations are inadequate to reclaim
the evils of duelling there alrea
dy exist too many fatal examples of the
futility of civil enactments, to need any j
argument to enforce a conviction of its
truth. To strike at the root of the evil, it
is necessary’that a united effort should he
mado to give such a tone to public opinion
on the subject, as will frown down the i
practice and render it odious to be engag
ed in a duel—when this desirable object ’
shall be attained, then and not until then,
will the practice cease. There is no plan,
in the view of your committee, so effective
as the one suggested, of erecting auxiliary ;
Societies in every part of the State for its
suppression. The members of these So*
cieties wifi feel themselves particularly
called upon tube active in the good cause

By an art of the General Assembly
of the £ftfli December, 1823. entitled
‘An art to ratify the proposed convert

Savannah and Tugalo rivers,* it is

as South Carolina should pass an art;

in South Carolina, ratifying the rqn* j
vention, on the condition, that the;
consent of Congress should be first ob
tained. Having learned from a Mes
sage of Governor Taylor of South
Carolina, that an application to Con

delegation from Georgia would*no.t u

no attempt to procure, a ratification

from a belief that it cannot now he

One remark is suggested by facts de
veloped by them, and known from
other sources. A project is in the
course of execution to divert, by a
rail road from Hamburg to Charles
ton; the whole trade of this State (a
hove Augusta) from Savannah to
Charleston. The right of South Ca
rolina to improve all its resources,
and to draw from a neighbouring
state a portion of its trade, is not de
nied, nor the exercise of that right a |
cause of just complaint* hut in this,

efit of the Engineers of the United I
States, the skill and science under j

money of the General Government,!

pose of aiding in the execution ot a
scheme which, if successful, will seri- .
ously injure, if not destroy our most
flourishing seaport. It. is in vain that
the constitution of the United States
prohibits a prVference to he given by
any regulation of commerce nr reve
nue to the ports of one State, over
those of another, if the r sources of j
the Union can he directly applied to
anj’ extent for the benefit of Charles

That the project to divert the com

Georgia, is visionary; that nature has
already indicati and the channel through
which that commerce must pass, and

From the New- York Advocate.
Mr. M onr >f. — lt appears by an ad
dress which the citizens of Albemarle
(Vwvj hav£ made to the public, ‘hat ttve
final blow has been struck upon the pi o
pertyol Air. Monroe, and that in conse
quence, houseless and pennyless, he has
left that n- ighborhood and we suppose the
sure, We hate for some time under
stood that this result was inevitable, and
that lu> would be obliged to leave a place
which has been his residence for fifty
yens. It is not therefore improbable
that he has or may become a resident ot
New York, where also resides one ot his
daughters, married to Samuel L. Gover
nor, Esq. The neighbors of Monroe in
Albemarle, evince a generous fneudslup
and sympathy tor .their venerable friend,
and huve not seen without efforts to arrest
it, the calamity which has separated Mr.
Monroe from them. They have made a
strong appeal to the citizens ot that sec
tion, as well as our country generally,
accompanied with hfinute and interesting
facts, showing the pecuniary sacrifice*
made by Mr. Monroe, during half a centu
ry of public service at home and abroad.
It is yet the object and the hope of the
citizens of Albeuiade, that Legislative
aid will be extended in a case fraught
with so much personal hardship, not m
the way ol a grant or pension, but as a re
in jney.it ion for losses actually sustained
by Mr. Monroe, while in the public em
ploy. Os the validity ofj these claims up
on the Government, or iu relation to them
in any wise, we are not prepared to say
any thing, other than that it must be the
wish of every gene.ous heart, to see them
examined promptly! and interpreted
most liberally and kindly. Venerating as
we do all that devoted race ot revolution
ary patriot*, of whom Mr. Monroe is a
mong the last, we are anxious that ainul
| the general prosperity and the universal
happiness dttt'u-ed by their labors, their
last days should be their best d-ys. As
New-Yoi kers too, cannot but be affec
ted with th£ spectacle of an aged patriot
pcaving,Jus native, and beloved state, and
coming uniting us for bread. ‘An oid man
