Fsom -rtis AURORA. Thf volume of news, and tl’c 'nterell vi'b wh'ch ircarries wifh : u 0 received from Furope, j \,. e impelled us to adjourn for ,' et another day, a variety of confiderations upon the recent tranfaO:ions concerning St. Do min? 0 - \V> cannot omit, however,-at this moment an expreflive com ment, extrafted verbatim from the official authorises. In the Philadelphia Gazette r ,f Thurflay, appeared the fol lowing paragraph u We hear, that a mifconccp tion has occurred in (he arrange ment relative to the opening of the tfdde with St Domingo. Inftead of icfiraining vedels from entering the ports of that ifland previous to the firfl of Au?uff. it was intended that no veflel fliould fail from the United States ?or thole ports before that period. It is alfo faid, that in confequence of this mifunder flanding, veflVls which have al ready dc parted will not be per mitted to enter there." This is an acknowledgment that our government was a6ling under a mifconception ; the cir cular letter of Oliver Wolcott' was dated on the 26th of [une, sndthe Pi efident’s proclamation,, ligned by Timothy Pickering on the lame day—the following are literal extra&s from thole public documents. From the Proclamation. <c 1. (t (ball be lawful for veffels which have departed or may depart, from the United States to enter the ports of Cape Francois, and Port Republican, formerly ral'ed Port-au-Princc to the faid ifland of St D min po, on and after the firfl day of Auguff next.” From this it appears that a month ago the adminillration ihued official precepts which authorized all vefTols which had departed, or ought to depart to enter the ports of St. JJomingo, From the Circular Letter . Ihe ports of Cape-Fran co’s an d Fort Republican, for rnerly Port-au-Prince, are eflab- Mhed by the government of St. omingo as the on’y ports of <ntr y ; for thefe two ports ciear s may be granted immedi- y; although they cannot be until the firtt of Augufl. t kls which may attempt to Cnter o‘her ports, without fpe- Cla pf'rmiffion, as heieafter men will be liable to feizure and confifeation.” « J^ ere we find the offices of ~a te l^e treafury publifhing !r authoritative atls to the * people—on the 261 b june—and on the 18th of ruy ’ *f a PP ear s that they were p ‘ er ’gnoraut of their duty in in molt ,rn portant cale—involv- J momentous interefts and ° r l^at thc Y knew 2nd tU abufed it— e notification of this mif , • 1 « t V* conception is msde in two ways— firfl in a filly paragraph in the Philadelphia Gazette—and then by a didloiial letter pubhfbed in Bradford's paper of Ftidny— wherein it appears that the fame Mr. l.iflon who told Prefident RufTell we were embarked in hcflile mcafures againfl Sr. Do mingo with the Britifb—this guardian minifler condefcends tocommunicate a letter,in which he has out of his great love and refpedl for our national inde pendence, fuggefled to a Britifb admiral the Bluing orders to his cruifers not to whip us for our rmjhehaviour !
