ihiui otherwise at bra arrival. " We believe," says the Yeoman, "(hey deprecate nothin); more ardently, than that he should enlist in the party eon flirts of the U. States.—Mr. C. has declared that he eomes here merely as a visitor—that he "shall always love England better than any other country''—and that he "will never br-omc a subject or citizen of any Ctlier state." As a foreigner, then, ■we bid him welcome to all our hwîus tonied rites of hospitality ; and al though we confess we cannot entertain tlint high admiration for the charac ter of the rarthiun patriot who flics from the battle, and " in safely shoots living," as for the Hampdcns, the Russels, and the Sidneys, who remain ed firm at their posts in the hour of danger and despotism—yet wc greet Mr. Cohbett with a cordial welcome ; and when he is inclined to amuse hi"i self and others, by displaying the skill with which he can hit a political ob ject, we freely present him the whole realm of Great Britain, with all its colonies and dependencies—its Prince Regent. Lords and Commons—its " rotten hoi oughs," sinecures, paupers and (tensions, and thinking John Bull himself, for a target. We shall with pleasure read the registered account of his bull feasts, and shall clap the adroit Materdo, who leezrs the lordly animal with his darts, and makes the old English Bull roar again—all this will be very pleasant to us Green Mountain Republicans. But the republicans, (our writer continues.) " will not soon forget, that. Mr. Cohbett was once a political par tizen in the U. States. They remem ber, that when the republicans were engaged as honestly as Mr. C. can now be, in attempting a inform in nnr government, Mr. Cohbett then took the "aristocratic" side, and edited the " Porcupine," every quill of which was directly pointed against reform. They cannot forget the licentiousness of a pen, which respected neither age, learinig, publie character,' or indivi dual profession—They cannot forget the coarse abuse east on the pride of bur country, the venerable Franklin, tinder the nick-name of " Old Thunder Mug" —nor the attack on the profes sional character of the good and learn ed Dr. Rush, under that of •* Sangra do"--and they have experimentally learned enough of the versatile dispo sition of this profuse irritable writer, to know, that though he may ànonce his visit by attacking the fotfe r.alists,-he may continue an ft . ointitule it, by abusing the republicans. " A word to the wise is sufficient".—-and surely the sago of botiey is a wise man." These sentiments reflect mu h credit upon the editor of the Yeoman: and the neat and cutting sarcasm, conveyed in the comparison between the flying patriot, and the " Damp dens, Bussels and Sidneys." who re mained firm at: their posts in the hour of danger, w ould he keenly felt by any one not us callous to every honor aide feeling, as Cohbett himself, or the igsect reptiles who are ready to crawl around him, and exhale his venom, that they may render their own principles the more poisontius.

As great prejudice will naturally arise, in consequence ol the unfortu nate accident lately happened to I he Steam Boat Constitution in the wa ters or the Mississippi ; and to remove as much as possible this growing pre judice. would it not be expedient, to have a tender or large boat to ac company the Steam Boats, when ply ing in our waters ? this plan may he attended with some trifling ineenve. nienee, hut are the fives of our citi zens to lie put in jeopardy on account of any inconvenience or expenee which may incurred ? Having the tender or boat in company, I do not pretend to say would prevent the boiler bursting, or any other casual accident, to which the Boats are at all times liable ; hut persons wishing to travel by water, would not make that hesitation, which they otherwise would, if there was something provi ded for their relief in case of such accidents taking place. The ease and facility which the Steam Boat« afford to travellers would weigh down any oilier considerations, hut, the idea of exposing ones' selT to he scalded to death, would naturally excite senti ments (ft horror and disgust!—and •loles- there arc some exertion« used mi the part of the Steam Boat own vs, to resist and repel the food of irejudice, now pouring down upon hem, I fear they may dwindle into oniparatlvel.v nothing, and he hence forth considered as a public nuisance. In the waters pi - the Mississippi, as well as here, they are vastly import ant—so much so, that 1 think no moans should he left untried to secure to them flic patronage of the public. It must, however, lie a source of consolation to the Steam Boat, owners in our waters, to think they have never heen interrupted hy an cireum stanoo of a serious nature. N.

The hill against John Keenos, tailor, was thrown out. It appears, therefore, that enough has heen discovered against the above live persons to put them upon their respective trials for the greatest of fence which the law knows. Upon (his awful subject we are therefore prevented from saying more at pre sent. We learn from the speech of the Attorney General, that they are to he put upon, their trials with alt proper and becoming expedition. Tlie forms necessary on such solemn oc casions would, however, have render ed it impossible to commence the pro ceedings till within a day or two of the conclusion of the present term, during which they uould nt>t, there fore, probably have been finished.

The activity cT the Dey lms now within it half a year wholly remedied tiie consequences of one of the blooili est battles which the shores of Africa have witnessed for many centuries. It is thought the intention was to de stroy Algiers. This however did noi happen. The loss consisted in the largest part of the pirate fleet ; bût the arsenals, the magazines and work shops, the store of ammunition ami provisions, in short all the elements of political liTe, were saved, damaged fortifications are now strong er than before, and the marine, by means of purchase and new built ves sels, may he said to be daily increas The ted Che the of a the of he he the of of at mg. "The abolition of slavery seems to have been the chief object of the ex pedition. But either as slaves or prisoners of war. the Christian, who lias the misfortune to fall into the hands of these barbarians, will he treated exactly in the same manner. "The Algerines do not trouble themselves about this difference, if they can only make war upon t'.ir European nations at their pleasure, and curb'll their state with the sums extorted from them, or w ith the valu* of the ships raptured from them. The whole of the Murine of this place is. however, at present dismantled, ex eept the schooner which was sent soon after the, bombardment with an Ambassador, and rich presents, to Constantinople, and is not yet come back ; and according to all appear ance no new piratical expedition will he undertaken before an answer from Constantinople. Since the Monopoly of the Trade and Coral Fishery at Bona, which was farmed to the Eng lish; from 1806 for 50,000 hard pias tres, has ceased, it Lns been offered to France and Naples. France, which had possessed the privilege from the beginning of the seventeenth century, is said to he not disinclined to take it again on the old terms, that is about 18,000 hard piasters; hut the Dey demands as much as lie re ceived l'rotn the English, and the af fairs is still undecided. " Several foreign papers have said that troops were on their march from the interior of the kingdom towads Stockholm. This is wholly unfounded, and no less absurd than the reportai' Algerine pirates having captured Swe dish ship; the good understanding with the Barbary States was never firmer than at present." The House of Commons continue their important discussions. Last night u motion for dispensing with the Secretary for the Colonies was brought forward by Mr. Tierney, & receded by a large majority, subject of Debating Shops was also touched upon again-the l'action dive at this in order to paralyze the Magistracy of the Country, and every error is blazoned with exlraordinarv f the Tie exaggeration into an i.tunce most tyrannical and lawless oppres sion. The object is consistent, hut we trust the means will fail. Dublin. May 3. By the English mail, which arrived yesterday, we received London Jour nuis of Tuesday, with French and other foreign papers.

New York, May 29; The general convention of the Pro testant Episcopal Church in the Uni ted States of America, consisting of Che house of bishops and the house of clerical and lay deputies, closed tlieir triennial session at a late hour <m Tuesday evening last. It will afford much pleasure to our readers of that communion, to learn that ou this oc casion, the venerable hislmps of the church were all present, and that, the attendance on the part ol the other house was more numerous than on any former occasion.
