T\e Secretary nf Shite.—Wo avail ourselves of au early opportunity, after recording the cc rumouics atal festivities of the Anniversary, to copy from the National Journal an article, res pecting the course of the Secretary of Slate to wards the National Intelligencer, which it is not presuming too much to attrilmteto the Dcpait tnentof State. The high source from which it emanates demands lor it a seno.w and respectful n itiee. W itl» regard to the course which this paper hus pursued towards the Administration, it has been one of uitiiortn deference and respect. If we uudci stand the grounds upon which a charge ot the contrary has beeu nude against us by the ultra prints, and uo where else, it has been that wo have hafl the audacity to defend a Member of that Administration fro::i an undeserved and unrelenting |>orsecutism—the same Member of vtbe Administration for whom the Secretary of State manifested his particular regard, not long ago, by toasting him at a Public Entertainment! Those prints combined for the purpose of poi soning the public mind against that disthiguisli ed public servant, and preten led, in doing so. with unprecedented assurance, to speak the language of the President. This we knew to be untrue, anil we slated it. Wc know of no o ther ground upon which those vehicles of un truth have pretended to impute to 11s hostility, or ov «:n disrespect, to the Administration. From i tic bottom of our hearts, we have always loved and revered the President, and have not stinted our approb.Uion of his public conduct. If wc have been loss lavish of our eulogies than some of our coatom porhrics, it has probably been be cause t tie re has boon more of sincerity in what we have .said. A dishonest or designing man inry laud you to your face, hut a true friend ne ver flatters. If the writer of this article intends to refer to publications admitted into this priflt, from cor respondents, we distinctly assert that nothin"-, unobjectionable in manner, has crer been re! fused admission, that was favorablo to the Ad ministration or to any member of it, but that much has been rejected of a diff erent import. There is one Construction of the languao-c of this article, which would not bear examination, viz. that our course respecting the Presidential Election has been disrespectful “towards the present Administration,” and a just cause of withholding from us the privilege of sprcadiii"* before our numerous readers the acts of the g vcminent. So far is this from the fact, that wc have steadily reprobated thedisrespect shown by the partisans of different candidates for the Pre sidency, iu beginning to wrestle for the successi on before Mr. Mon not: was fairly seated in the chair, at his seeo. d election. Thus much l'or the 5eucr.1I course of the Edi , tors of this' print, on which we forbear to en larg-e, Vecausc we stand noon thodefensive only Now for the particular allegation that, “ori a recent occasion, we thought proper to garble the publication of the Documents relating to the Convention for the suppression of tbiT Slave Trade.” To refute this allegation let a plain tale sn dice. Che Convention with Great Britain was rati fied on Saturday, the ‘22d Wav. On the Mon day following, the injunction of secrecy was re moved, notion Tuesday followflfcg wo stated the fact, with a promise to publish “the particulars” m our next, if wc should be ablet,, obtain them. Wc were not able to obtain them, owing to the construction put upon the order of the Senate that the substance aud not the particulars of the proceedings were to be published. On the 2iitli we published the substance of the Trcatr and the fact of its qualified ratification, which,'seek ing the gratification of our readers, wc took much trouble to obtain. On thatdava differ ent construction was jlftt upon the rule of the Senate, and, through the kindness of a Member of the House of Representatives, (no others but Members and Officers of Congress l>ciii«- allow t-d to enter the Office of tho Secretary of the Senate,) we obtained a copy of the documents, and an extract from the Journal of the Senate. These papers wo published, voluminous as they were, on the 2'Jtb—29th of May, as we re ceived them, with the exceptions, viz : that be ing much pressed for ro„n, we omitted the counter-project of the British Commissioners, which, not being adopted, was not material, and is not now all.-god to have been so, and the “Extracts from two resolutions of the House of representatives, one of the nth of February, 1821, the other of the l‘2lh April, 11122,” which' having been before published, and only here in troduced as showing the corroboration between the views of Congress, and tbr.se expressed in the President’s Message, wc di.1 not sup;»ose to be material. It is a singular cuinci lence th-.t the space, which those extracts would have oc cupied, was in part filled by the “ official” ac count of the. Caucus of tho Connecticut I.c^-is latore, nominating lion. Jonv Quincy Adams as a candidate for the presidency. This be it remembered, was Saturday. In the intermedi ate time between that publication and Monday wo heard ;lhat the omiV.ion of those extracts was doomed material. What did we do then ? We did not, to be sure, fall down upon our I knees, and ask pardon for no sin, but we did i promptly, vi& on .Monday, put into type, and on Tuesday publish, in the National Iutclligen- j csr: til ese identical extracts, saying at the time I that “ we thought we??l,:id published every ; thing material upon the subject, and should ! .'.ti’d think so, had it not been otherwise sug goviea oj u iijcn.i. viz: uy tn.it much reapcc- 1 tcJgcutlo:\t:i who fids. mth -o grout propria- ! ty, the situation of CliL-i’CIcrk m t!ic Depart ment of State. 11 this was not “ an apology it certainly was a prompt attempt to repair an omission, which, if material, was yet merely in advertent. These omissions we have never seen represented as “ intentional suppression bv ttie Secretary of .State,” or we should ^cer tainly have contra lie'ed the statement. But, it seems, we published a summary of the arguments against the Treaty, at the same time that we published the documents. .Vow. with great deference, wo supposed it to be our duly to lay before our readers, the People of the. \j nited.States, all the information which we could obtain, in relation to the Proceedings of their government, of which the Senate is as much a purl as the Deportment of State. Nor, bo that as if may, can we conceive how that publica- ! non could confect with the views of the F. seen- j t»ve. We shoe! 1 suppose the reverse—we had Idee to have ii I. we are sure it was otherwise, because it tended to shew to Croat Britain the force of the resistance which it was necessary for the loxeculive to overcome in pi jn,.ring the ratification of Shis Con veil ion, even a; pialiiiod, and proved how much ine u n.jd the iVecu.ivo* was in pressing the ratification of it. The sum- ’ tnary of arguments was obtained from i m in ker of the Senate of the United -jlnles, and the publication was accornpaumd by these among I other observations: “The rituio.itiofi of the Convention was dc- I cidediy opposed, though strongly pressed by the ! President, hi/ cogent argnmnui too, as will ap pear from a perusal of his Message,” kc. “The arguments in favor of the Treaty art: fully slated n the President’s Message and the Diplomatic Correspondence. The arguments Hai l to have been urged in Sjnatc, in opposition to the Troaty, were substantially as follows. Uro state them now, that the reader, who t, an interest in the subject, tn \y at one; have a vie m of the vikole gro-oi'l ” VVe cheerfully submit the decision t >th- Pub lic, whether wo did not do our du!*. in ni.iaiug i '.his publication, as fir id r.’garJrt oar motive' and wb.etner the happen'd* tvas act palp <Mv the result of accident, and not of-design, as the writer of the article for the Journal insinuates. With rcs|»ect to the ajnjto^ij which appears to have been expected trum us without being asked, wo have only to say that to apologise for doing wrong, under orroncous impressions, is to us a sincere pleasure. Not being sensible of ha* ing committed wrong, we had nothing toa pologi/.e for. At to our not having defended the Adminis trate m, it wa,s, because, after the ratification of j the Convention, wc did not sec the occasion for it- The Secretary of State is well aware that wc did, previous to the ratification of the Trea ty, publish a favorable view of its principle. Tree discussion serves to elicit truth, rather than pervert or conceal it; and the Secretary could not hut be assured, tliat wo should have been proud to publish.any exposition of the me rits of that Treaty, which ho, or any other func tionary, had thought proper, especially as the object of that Treaty had our most cordial ap probation—a sentiment which will he found in the National Intelligencer of June 4, (almost contemporaneously with the publication of the summary of arguments against the Treaty) in the following words : “As far as our personal feeling on the subject goes, we should have considered it, under all the circumstances, au unfortunate incident had the treaty been rejected.” W ith respect to our not having, “to this day,’1 published all the documents on the subject, wc assert that we have published all that we have seou of them. The documents were confiden tially communicated. We had no access to to them: we published what was procured for us by one, than whom noinau has taken a deep er iuterost in the success of the Tieaty, and wc published occry word of it. If the Stsretartj had been pleased to furnish us with the papers, they would have been published promptly ami literally, at whatever cost. Their publicatiou in the National Government Journal was un known to us, until now stated. If yet consi dered material, the remainder of the documents will bo published. llut what need of all this History of a trans action with which, in fact, the Secretary of State had, properly, no concern? If he had transmitted documents to us for publication, and we had been guilty of errors in regard to them, either of omission or commission, he would have had just ground of complaint, llut what is the tact? We obtain, with great difficulty, from a Member of Congress, copies of certaiu Docu ments and Proceedings of the Senate; we pub lish all that appears to us to be necessary to give a just view of them; wc are informed that a part omitted is deemed material; wc publish it in stantly—all will not do; the accident has hap pened, and ire shall be punished by a icfusal to publish important public documents iu this pa per, the only one which has sufficient circula tion to didusc the information among the People who have a right to it. We are to be punished, however, in pari only, it seems; which infor mation reached us liist through the columns of the Journal. 11 wc uavc succeeded in no fending ourselves against Hie writ of error promulgated against ns, ivu arc entirely satis « ?d. Beyond tlio limits of >elt defence it is not our wish, nor shall wc per mit ourselves, to go. Wo made no complaint against the Honorable Secretary, but it would have been dishonest to our readers to conceal the tact, formally and orhctally communicated to ns, that he had intentionally chosen another j vehicle for communicating official information j to the Public. } A candid and dispassionate review of this mat j tor leaves us j et in utter astonishment that the | .Secretary of State——this elevated officer; this self-poised, enlightened, and experienced States * man, should, for a cause thus trivial—forati ei - I ror, ii it were one, rectified as soon as known, have taken mortal ofi’ence, and deliberately re solved to withdraw his confidence and counte nance from a print which has from its founda , lion stood by its country and its Republican ad i ministrations, through evil and through good ; report, and lias enjoyed the uwavering confi dence ofa Jkffkiisun, a iW.imso.x, and a j\lo\ ■iof:, for lour and twenty j'cars! ()ur readers have a view of both sides of this nisiinderstanding, and we have not the least j desire to press the matter further upon their at ! tention. Lit.

Among other things he ha given a brief character of the principal Morning am Evening Papeis, and were not our modesty at leas equal to our merits, wc should he tempted to quob whai is said of ourselves. lit.t knowing how gr.tii lying it will he to several ol our contemporaries t< have the oppm lunity of doing us that favor, wc sital merely lay before our readers the following ex ,rarL: London Courier. me \c'.vcpaper t’ress ot London is unrivalled by anj» similar establishment in the woild. In point o! b*erary talent and mechanical execution, it is an honor to the British empire. The Press of the United States of America will bear no comparison witli-t; and the Parisian one, so far from equal]. titS that of London, is not, by many depress to the provincial Press of Ireland.*.- In London there are from fifty to sixty different Newspapers. The num ber v.ariej, as many start into existence, and run perhaps the career of hut a fen- weeks; but some of riiem have been established for upwards ofa centu ry, others from forty to fifty years, althou-h the greater proportion have come into being since the pen.).-! of the French Revolution. Much or the prosperity and greatness of Knglau 1 is to he dated from tuat ere. Commercial enterprise received an impetus from the war, unexampled in the history of any nation. MannfactareSf especially cotton manu factures, only their infancy „t the commencement of thei Revolution, readied almost a state of perfec tion during the continental devastations that follow ed. Newspapers increased with the national pros perity and iirlepsiidenco. Kach passing event daily became more nit. resting, and the desire to obtain • irly luteUi .' oci- became the stronger. This i, demonstrable from the following table of the num ber of Newspapers published within the United ‘ ri,n f,rs< iVnwxpaper that appeared in the nrc ?cnt single sheet form in Kugland was called ••Tin public Intelligencer,'’ and was published by Fir Ro ger L Lstrange, on the 31 August 1G61.

Thu dif ference is nut so great with respect to the English metropolis; for nltlio’ in 17152 there were only eighteen papers publishe I, nine of these were daily ones, and the remaining nine twice a week ones, pro ducing in all seventy-two weekly ones; whereas in 1621, the increase in daily Newspapers was fiotn nine to sixteen, the decrease in twice a week from nine to eight, and the increase of weekly, of which none appear to have been published in 1762, was thirty two; the difference, therefore, in the propor tion of weekly Newspapers between these periods, being only what seveuty-two is to one hundred and forty four, or exactly one half. This, to ln> sure, is not a fair criterion of their increase, as the number of copies sold in the last period must have doubled the number sold in the first period. It shews, however, the stato of the market, & the circum stances, so fur as public feeling was involved, under which the proprietors of these Journals thought such speculations prudent. There arc still thirteen daily papers published in London ; seven thrice a week, nine twice a week (six of which, however, can only be said to be second editions of the same papers) and twenty-three weekly. It appears that these Journals circulated iu 18‘il, 111,25 1 copies; for the stamp duty upon which there was paid to the Stamp office the sum of 270,908/. 18*. sterling! “ 1 he English rebellion of 1641 gave rise to many more of these tracts, which during the time of the long Parliament were principally filled with violent appeals to the people, suited to the violence and the hypocrisy of the period, and intended to justify the proceedings of the legislature towards their con stituents, the soldiery, and the multitude. Many of these tracts bore the title of “ Diurnal Occurrences ot Parliament.” These, however, were entirely superseded by the establishment of “ The Public Intelligencer,” in 1665 “The Loudon Gazette” commenced : it was at first published at Oxford, and called “ The Oxford Gazette.” “The Orange In telligencer was the third Newspaper, and the first after the Hevolution in 1688 there appear to have been nine London papers published weekly, al though the last mentioned seems to have been the only daily one. In Queen Anne's, reign, in 1700, their number was increased to eighteen, but still there was but one daily paper, “ The London Cou iant.

A copy—Test, J. T. LE1GII, C. A. C. Jtine J- . w8wt3T PROSPECTUS Of a New Journal, to be Published at the Cilu of Washington, BY WAY <fc GIDEON, FOR THE EDIT0P.8. ENTITLED THE AMERICAN MERCURY. The establishment of another new Journal at the scat of the national government, may, peihaps, bo considered by some, as premature and unnecessary al l',ls ,imc* while by others, it will be hailed wirli pleasure, ns another source of intelligence, and ano ther medium nf.informatinn,from which much bene fit may be derived. Means for diffusing light and truth and knowledge can never be too extensively multiplied or too generally promoted. In all free governments the press is emphatically the paladi um of liberty, and it is only in despotisms that its range is circumscribed and its energies destroyed It is by a free, unrestrained, and easy diffusion of knowledge, and especially political knowledge, that the liberties of a nation can be preserved; this is best effected by means of the press, therefore, can not be too widely or generally established. Promises are so frequently made in undertakings of this sort, and so Often violated, that wc shall for bear to make more on this occasion than we intend to fulfil. But, this we will say, without the appre hension of failure, that ex-cry effort shall be made to diltusc the most correct information; to support the principles of republicanism in their purity; to de fend the measures of government that arc bottomed on these principles, and that are calculated to pro mote the general good; and to endeavor to cherish a spirit of union and liarn.feny among the confede rated members of our great republic. And w hile we rio this, we shall not he inattentive to the claims of American literature and science, hitherto too much neglected, but will, at all favorable nppoitunities, labor to contribute to their advanccmnnt and tp promote tln ir success. Through the medium of lit trniy oral critical essay?, inserted from time to time, we shall endeavor, moreover, to beget and fos ter, as far as wc arc able, a taste for letters awl a love of science, that will add to the cnjnvrticnt a* well as the happiness of all who feel their influence Established, as tins journal will be, at the seat of government, it will be in the power of the editors to put their patrons in possession of whatever of inte rest may transpire,cither in the cabinet or the coun cils of the nation, and to communicate the informa tion as it comes, immediately front its source. The proceedings of Congress, and sketches of the de bates, with tho most important official communica tions, shall also, be regularly given, and in short,no effort shall be omitted on the part of the editors to render the Journal as interesting and useful as yos As we purpose to be, on nil occasions, perfect!* thnt nsTt°rt'1,,,k 'l 7“ P.ropt'T to state’ °» this thne, p ’ . . -<pccts tlie different candidates for the ofBmv Cbairourd.oice isdcc.dcdly in favor ofHbNKY CLAY, whose talents and genius we respect, and whose claims to the high office to which so many are aspiring, we shall endeavor to support; but, at the same time, with that temperance and courtesy which we think due to the character not only of Hkxuv Clay, but to that of his rivals, and winch, we arc sure, will be more agreeable to all, than the rude ribaldry and low srurrility in which some have indulged in pushing forward the claims of their favorite candidate. The principles to which I\i r. Cl t v has adhered, in the whole of his political career, are precisely those we shall maintain. We are advocates for whatever will conduce to the pros perity nod welfare of the nation; and the leading traits of Mr. Clay's political life have been those of deep attachment to his Country, and to w hatever ivoui promote its interests, and a strong desire to advance the cause of freedom, and to protect and support the iniitlicirnble rights of man. Of the course we shall pursue, therefore, and the principles v/e :all advocate, we think we have said ennu b, and, with this brief expose ofour intentions, in tiic i stfll: ii hrncnt of this journal, we throw ouv srKc..; upon the public, in tire expectation of obtain ing a portion of their patronage.
