Sect. 2. And be it further enacted That no claim Ihall be allowed for the renewal of loan office certificates destroyed before the fourth day of March, one thousand seven hun -1 dred and eighty nine, unless the deftru&ion ' of the fame was advertised, according to the resolution of Congress, of the tenth day of May, one thousand seven hundred and eighty; or before that time was ftotififcd to the office , from which the fame was issued, nor ihall claims be allowed for the renewal of loan of fice certificates destroyed on or after- the said fourth day of March, one thousand feveti hundred and eighty-nine, nor. of final settle ment certificates destroyed at any time, un less thft dellruftion of the fame was so far made public, as to be known to at least two credible witnefles, fooa after it happened, ans Iha'l have been before the presentation of the of the claiim, as herein alter provided, adver tired for at least fix weeks fucceflively, in some one of the newspapers of the ttate in which the deitrudUon happened; and also, in i'ojne one of the newspapers of the state in y which the certificate ilTued, if that was ano ther fiate ; the advertiftment or advertife mcn|k in such cafe, exprefling with as much precinon as pofiible, the number, date and amount of the certificate alledged to have been destroyed, and the name of the person to whom the fame was issued, together with the time when, the place where, and the means by which the fame was destroyed.

Frederick AugustusMuhlenbeilcs Speaker of the House of Representatives. John Adams, Vice-President of the United States, and President of the Senate. Approved—April the twenty-firft 1794, G°. WashingtonV President of the United States. Philadelphia. ExtraS of a Letter from New-Jersey, dated April 28, 1794. 1 have just returned from my Eastern Tour where I arranged my business with my friend. L to our mutual fatiffac tion, arid tefl night had the pleasure of your favor of the 27th. " The political ho rizon has indeed cleared up," and the storm which seemed to gather so fa ft a round is happly dispelled. I partake in the general fatiffaftion which the firm and temperate conduct of the Executive has given. With the exception of one or two t grumblers—l found the appointment of a special Envoy universally agreeable. It breathes the cool determination which the best interests of our country require, and which is very much in unison with the temper of the people I have just left.— The appointment offo eminent a chara&er as Mr. Jay, whose talents are so well known and refpeftcd in Europe, is conG dered as giving energy to the measure, and will impress the British Cotirt with the necessity of paying immediate atten tion toademand so folrtinly made. A sin cere desire to avoid the horrible mifchrefs of war, and a determination to insist ort and enforce every important right, is really the true line of eondu& for every Govern, ment. This seems the prevailing disposi tion where I have been ; and that cool and manly republicanism which lately I have met with, forms a fine contrast to that frothy patriotifrrl which evaporates : in rioife and declamation and which is too common among some «f our friends. lam glad to find that the refohe-mania begins to abate in Congress. Our mem bers appear to be as deeply infe&ed with it as uhy. To b ! e the author of a resolution has of latebeen avery prevailing ambition, which has given birth to such a variety of motions—amendments—postponements— &c. tliat one is pUzzled to comprehend them. We hear of Mr. B's motion, Mr. C's motion, Mr. D's motion, aud (0 on through half the alphabet: and yet so un lick'd have these things been, that they may well be compared to " half formed in fe&s on the banks of the Nile." This rapid production and changeable variety of mo tions, may, however I ftippofe be more justly ascribed to that warm refeptment, which every American felt on the news of the Brftifh spoliations ; but public coun cils are not the places for resentment, un tempered by prudence. 1 * /
