Tin- addit tion of maps of'he fcveral ft ate , procured a a very creat expend, and irom the belt mal terials that are attainable, speaks such ful conviction on this fubjsdt, that it would be difrerpet to the reader's understanding to suppose it requisite to enter into a detail of arguments to prove its superiority. In no similar work have such maps beenever intro duced. The emendations and additions which are made in this work,are innumerable,and otcur in every page. The public are referred to the preface for a flight sketch of a few of them. The publisher takes the present opportu nity of returning his mod sincere thanks to tliofe refp.ft.iblc characters who have favored him with documents for improving the maps of several of the ftatrs. He requests a conti nuance of their kindness; and hopes that such public spirited citizrns, as are pofieffed of si milar documents will faror him with their alGftance in perfecting his undertaking. The extraordinary encouragement with which he has been favored, has excited in his bread the warmest sentiments of grati tujo which time will not efface. He pledjes himfelf to the citizens of the United State', to spare neither pains nor ex penfc to render the present edition ofGuthrie's Geography improved, deferViog of their pa tronage. [Whole No. 548.] UNITED STATES. NEW-YORK, March 2Z. £jxtra£t of a letter from Albany, March 14. " I informed you some time since, that the Senate has patted a bill for fortifying New-York, with money out of our Irea fury, in full confidence that Congrefj would repay us. After much time i'pent thereon, the bill was rejected by the As sembly on the principle, that it was the duty of the United States, aiid that it was unconllitutional for us to take up this bu- finefs. " On a fuggeflion that the United States would fortify our port, but that their means were inadequate ; Mr. North next morning brought in a bill for loaning nioney to the United States, for the pur pose of fecurirtgand fortifying New-York. It is probable it will pass in the Alfembly, and there is good hopes it will succeed ir\ the Senate. " The bill for providing field artillery, arms, accoutrements and ammunition, for the life of the militia of this state, bro't in some days since, by the fame gentleman was after much debate, passed yesterday by the alfembly. and 7 J, 000 dollars ap propriated for these objects. Mr. Mat thewr- Clarkfon, James Watson, and Ben jamin Walker, aie appointed commission ers for making purchales, disposing, &c. under the direction of the Governor.— The artillery, arms, &c. are to be I'epo fited in the four great diilri£ts, and left fubjeft to the orders of the commander in chief, Until further legislative provision (hall be made. " This bill is of such confluence to the state that there is no doubt of its paf iiug the Senate; perhaps they may not be sb liberal, and perhaps thiy may try to put in other commiffionera, not because those already nominated, art not perfedt ly good and proper, but because they are not of the right party, or j " The Legislature have an immensity of business yet before them> and if they remain here until the public objects only are gone through, they will not rife till the middle of April." We find by accounts from Europe and the Weft Indies that the present war is as suming a most ferocious afpeft. The in veterate hatred that subsists between the belligerent nations is calling forth every malignant passion, and barbarism marks the progress of the contest. The unparal leled depredations on commerce by the British nation, has provoked univerlal in dignation : and the mysterious detention of neutral vessels in the French ports, and the violent seizure and sale of their cargoes at half the firft'eoft, by the comeniffioners, is a proceeding, not to be accounted for on any principle of pol'cy. One woulc'j think that the nations at war are deter mined, in venting their fury at each other, to commence pirates and plunder all na tions. Indeed what is thrir conduit but universal piracy ! It seems as though they were treading back the ftepscf civilization and haltening to the savage state of the 9th and 10th ctnturies, wlien the feawas covered with roving coifairs from Norway and the Baltic. . Philadelphia. Lift week failed from this port the (hip La Ville de l'Orient, of twenty four nine pounders, and Monday Le Republican, of eighteen fix pounders. These (hips have on board upwards of 7000 barrels of flour, and are to join the fleet in Chcfaptak. A correspondent informs, (fays the Ame rican Daily Advertiser) that about 18 days ago, the cargo of a prize to the Sans Pareil, was publicly fold in Charleston. The prize was freighted at New-Providence, by the Britilh Governor, and bound to Augustine. Her cargo consisted of paint, blankets, gorg ets, bracelets, and other ornaments, for In dians. Addid to these, was a very consider able quantity of scalping knives, mulkets, and tomahawks!
