Vol. VII.—No. 43. gEonswiittonal mnfg« MONDAY MOICNING, JUNK 21, 1830. na. kino. Tho last Norfolk papers bring us the answer of this gentleman to the letter of the Secretary of the Navv, which we lay without delay before the reader. Ills answer to Kendall will appear in a short time. Those who were just enough to suspend the forma Uoa of a final opinion on this subject, until Mr. Kin" was heard from, will find their forbearance rewarded, ’■ as the manifestation of innocence falsely accused •carries pleasure to the just and upright.) by his com plete vindication against the charges, the insinuations and the inuendoes, of Secretary Bruncli. In saying this wo anticipate what will be, and is obliged to be every candid and intelligent man’s conclusion, after a perusal of Mr. King’s letter. If his reply to :lio more subtle allegations of Au ditor Kendall, shall bo as lucid and unanswerable •as his a newer to Secretary Branch, no man will be at •a loss to understand, that Mr King Was removed in the first instance for political reasons, and the attempt to make him out a defaulter afterwards resorted to, to justify that otherwise unjustifiable step. Power having gratified its resentments by on act of tyranny. sough next to excuse it, by an act of baseness which is hardly describable—-the roin of an innocent man’s reputation, to justify its own despotism. Thin we say, will be the conclusion, if Mr. King refutes Ken dall as triumphantly as he has refuted Mr. Secretary Branch. We believe he will do so. For the better understanding of Mr. King, we re publish the letter of the Secretary of the Navy which accuses him. JLiEtteb. from the Secretary of the Navy. •Navy Department, May 27, 1830. Sir: I have the honor, in obedience to the regula tion of the House of Representatives of the 15th in stant, calling for certain information in relation to the accounts, &c of Miles Ring, late Navy A^ent at Norfolk. Va., to present the uccompunyino- report of the Fourth Auditor of the Treasury, cuntainin™ part of the information called for There is also transmitted, marked A, copies of certain vouchers preheated to th<- Department by the said agent, which have been rejected, on each of which, respectively, is given the reasons for their re jection ot disullowance by tho Department. In addition to the reasons assigned on these vou chers for their rejection, it may be proper to state, by way of explanation, as to a pan of them, that the salary of a Navy Agent is limited by law to $2,000 per annum; and that all sums allowed to the agent, over and above this amount, aro intended to cover expenses which have been necessarily incurred i« the discharge of the duties of his office for clerk hire, office rent, stationery, fuel, &c. In the vouchers al luded to, it appears, that the demands of Mr. King to cover these expenditures, were made from time to time, allowed by the respective Secretaries, and the several sums carried to his credit on the books of the Treasury. After a lapse of from ten to thirteen years, these charges for clerk hire, &c. are reprodu ced, and the items considerably increased in amount In answer to that paitrof the resolution which calls for information as to the manner in which Mr. King lias kept his accounts, and made his monthly and quarterly returns, it. may bo premised, that the law requires the Navy Agent to make quarterly returns of his accounts to the Treasury Department; and that these shall be accompanied by ‘‘vouchers necessary to the correct and prompt settlement thereof;” and it is required that monthly returns shall be made to the Secretary of the Navy, of the "moneys received and expended during the preceding month, and of1 the unexpended balance in his hands." This regulation enables the Secretary of the Navy to remit to the agent the sums necessary for a prompt compliance with all contracts entered into by the Navy Department, and to limit the advance to the agent, so that an unnecessary and large amount of money may not be left in his hands. The monthly returns of Mr. King were not made in conformity to these requisites of ihe law. Requisitions were made upon the Dopurlment in the early part of May, 1823, for a considerable amount of money, when the month ly return of April shewed that he had in his hands large balances, applicable to the same objects for which his requisitions were drawn- An explanation was asked of this variance between his requisitions aBd eturn. (See letter of the 13th May, 1829.) No axtisfaclory explanation was given. It was then deemed proper to examine into the elate of his accounts with the Treasury, from which it appeared, that wliilst the return to* tha: Depart ment to the 80th of June, 1829. exhibited a balance tube due from Mr. King to th»* United Stu es of $26,568 86, the monthly returns to the Navy De partment, ending on the same day, stated a balance to be due from the United States to him of $20,065 11, making a difference between these returns ol $15,633 96. A funner investigation ol this subject, developed the two following tacts: 1st. That the monthly re turns to the Navy Department, from the year 1032, never did agree with the returns made to the Trcasu- i ry Department for the same time and same purposes: and, 2d. That they invariably shewed a smaller bal ance against Mr. King than was proven to be the fact, by his settlements with the Treasury Depart I ment. The importance of i hese disagreements will be better understood, when it is kept in mind that the quarterly returns are made to the Treasury or settle ment, while the monthly returns to the Navy Depart ment, are statements upon which advancer, are to be made to the Agent It can scarcely be necessary to remark, that if the accounts of the Agent contained n correct representation of the transactions of his of fice, the three monthly returns to the Navy D.-part meni should agree with the quarterly returns made to the Treasury Department for the same period This was found to betno fact with the returns of the other principal Agents. The paper marked B contains a synopsis of these discrepancies, from 1822, to June the 30ih, 1829. This document shows that Mr. King had for the last seven years, (with the exception of a short time,) pre ceding his removal Irom retained in his hands, unacknowledged to the Navy D purtnient, an amount of the public monies averaging fr un 410,090 to $16,000 per annum. The paper marked C s'iows the amount of the re- | quisitions made upon the D.-partmeut by Mr. King, Irom the 11th ol Mny to tho oth of August 1029, and it also shows, as accurately as could be determined, the amount necessary to meet the expenses for the Naval service at that s ation for the same period, ex hibiting overdrafts upon the Navy Department amounting to about $53,427 03. Of the claims wnich have been set up against the Department by others growing out of Mr. King’s agency,the principal is one to the amount of 440,14 1 17, made by the United Slo'ea Bink at Norfolk, Vir ginia, for advances professed to have been made to the Agent “solely on Government account;” the corres pondence arising from which, is herewith presented, ortarked D Undor no view of the case waB the claim doemed admissible. The Navy Agent had received no au thorily to borrow money on the credit of the Uni»ed States, nor was the Bank warranted in assuming th. right of determining when the public service deman ded advances to be made to its Agents A discretion i which the act of 31st of January, 1823, declares shall be exercised “under the special direction of the Uni ted States.” The assumption of such discretion by the Bank has thrown upon that institution this debt of $40,144 17 from which they have asked to be rein ted Had the rignt of the Bank to make these advances been sanctioned by the Department, this default of !\lr. King would have fallen upon the United States’ Treasury. Copies of the correspondence called for, will be found with the papers herewith transmitted. I have the honor to he Very respectfully. Sir.

Gre'U Storm.—From the Nashville papers we give copious details of the effects of the great storm which ravaged Rutherford county, on the night of the 31st May. It seems to have surpassed in fury and dura tion,any other which has occurred in this countrv in the memory of man. Of!—The President of the U. Slates left Wash ington for Tennessee on Thursday, with a part of his family. On the preceding day, Mr. Secretary Eaton took his departure for the North. On Saturday, Mr. Van Boren intended to proceed to Norfolk, supposed to meet the Russian Ambassa dor there. We have the Cabinet “scampering over tho country” much after the “Coalition” style.

KPThe Wheeling Compiler says that the census now being taken, will exhibit an unrepresented frac tion of 30,000 whites west of the Alleghany. It pro ceeds:— Will the West, then, submit to this? They ought not to submit even to a smaller loss, when the possibility of meeting out to us ample justice was so completely wi Hun the powei of the late convention. W'e would, then, humbly suggest the propriety ol the West’s sending inemoers to the next Legislature who themselves would be adequate to the formation of a con constnutiOTt, and urh<m census stiail prove the ereat ness of our loss, that they convene afier the close of the sees&ion, and form a constitution for the West, to bo submit ted to the people for approbation or rejection at the next April elections; or that they pass resolutions recommending the call of a V\ estern Convention next summer at Lewisnurg, Charles town, Keuawha county, or some other Western central point, there to lorm a Constitution fur tho W'est, and which it rati fied, shall be the Constitution ol a new State, to which an an propriaie name shall be given. ‘ [Tj Philo While, Editor of a little scurrilous print at Salisbury, N.

[ THE TENNESSEE TORNADO. From the A ashville Funner, June 7. Extract trom '* letter to the Editor, dated Shei.byvili.e, Ten. June 2, 1830. Dear Sir Siieltiyvilie is in ruins. On Monday night 31st May, about li o’clock, it pleased an all wise Providence to visit this place with a most devas tating hurricane. The Court-house, Market house, Methodist Church, the Brick Hotel, the Bunk, and many other vaiuaulc buildings were prostrateu in an instant. Five young men \y, re killed, and many otliers bruised and wounded Mr. Newton, editor of the Slielbyville Intelligencer, was earned amidst the ru.ns of his house lOll yards, and instantly killed and dread fully mangled; the other young men who wore Killed were Mr. David Whitson and Mr Caldwell, saddlers; Mr Rideout; and Mr. Arnold, clerk in Mr. James lteid s store. Messrs. Blackman. Dodson, Solomon Dews, and many others were badly hurt.— About thirty-eight stores and shops, and ten or fifteen dwelling houses wer : overthrown. I shull not attempt to describe the scene Those who have seen most ot such scenes, I imagine, at t-mpi ihe least to describe them No one heard tbe la!! ol a tree, or fence, or house. It was one con stant monotonous, shrill roar—the voice ol' the Tem pest. . I he ligntriiug was one co is am flash, rendc’’ lng every thing visible Tbe earth wuscovcrcd with a sheet ol water From the Public Square east, all is one undistinguished mars of rums*. The very founda ions ot many houses were blown up, and scarcely one s'ouc left upon anotner Plie prescr vatiou of lives amid such destruction ot habitations, seems ali?iosi miraculous. Many found themselves ymg on their floors without a root over 'hern or wails uround them; others were ( xtricated by their own exertions, or that ot th*ir friends from the r.ndst of rubers, beams and rubbish Some Were carried to a < isiance between masses of timber and brick bats.— , ihe storm began to subside, and the erv of distress was heard People halt naked were seen running through me streets to extricate their friends or con vey them to a place of safety Mr Am Id’s case was very pitiable. In passing from the store to'he street, the corner of a flying door struck him ami tore out a portion ot his lungs. He was still able to run into the street, whore iic was p.ckcd up and carried into an unroofed house and laid upon the floor; thence lie was taken to a bed, and lay during t'.Ui night and the next day in the greatest agony, which he boro with remarkable -orti'ude, and at length died, giving his friends the mo> consolatory evidence of his unshaken and triumphant faith The damage is variously animated, from fifty to » undrod thousand d-dlars. Some have lost ttieir all. and are without nous*-, furniture, or lood. Mr. Turrcntmo'a JowdJcry ah op was litefaHy torn to pieces, and his whole stock scattered in evorv direc tioo. The goods in most of the stores susi'amcd i flood deal of injury Extract from a teller to the editor, dated Ouaiu.ottb. Ten. June 1, 1G30. About half past ten o’clock last night, our rillagi was visited with a Tornado, the Violence and destiue tive effects of which no p«>n can describe, nor cai they be adequately conceived except by those whe were witnesses to the awful and terriffic scene. On little town is now, literally, a heap of ruins. Many who but yesterday had n comfortable home, arenovt i without a place even to shelter themselves, whil< | their clothing and provisions have all been 6Wept a way in the general wreck. The wind approached tin village from the soolli west, and although the ap pea ranee of the sky was frigh ful, »-nd mTo constant glare of lightning inspired awe and alarm.yet no one anticipated, none could anticipate, arid oven now it is difficult to rcultze, what the ravages of five minutes have produced. But yesterday, we were at ease, and CDiniortubly situated, to day, many are wandcrinn about the streets, not knowing where to go or how vi l‘rocure 1,10 mean3 o* supplying their Necessities. Many, who but yeslorday wero^ blessed-vtith and the lull enjoyment of the comforts of life are now languishing on their beds wi h broken limbs or man gled bodies, and some with scarce a hope of recov ery. But amidst all these calamities, the hand of a protecting Providence has been displayed in the al most miraculous preser vation ot many of our citizens. a he following list ol buildings demolished may fur nish some idea of the destructive rave gesof the storm, within the compass of ourlitile village_ D/. Napier’s brick corner,occupied by B. A. Collier as a store, and by Mr. Glasgow as a tailor’s shop; a > long log building, occupied by Voorhies and Smith as a store and Mrs. Clinton as a dwelling house; Judge Ilumplney’a house, occupied by Dr. B.

Robert Livingston’s hatter’s sh«>p, was destroyed, together with every other buildmg, on Ins premises, except his dwcding house, the chimney of which was blown down. Tlio dweling house of Ja- 1 cob Voorhies, was taken offto the second story, his ! chimney blown down, and all his out buildings des troyed. Field Farar’s 6tablo and other outiiouses were demolished. Thu tavern owned bv JameB Nes dii was much injured. James Gould had a part of the roof of his dwelling blown off, his kitchen and smoke house unrofed and chimneys thrown down Samuel Bowkcr s house &, smoke house wer# unroof ed; tne corn crib attached to the tavern of Tbo. Jar rett, occupied b B. C. Robbinson was blown down, and one of tho out buildings unroofed. The only house in the town that entirely escaped injury’ is that occn pied as a store by James Steele &. Co and with the buildings destroyed, nearly all their contents were swept away and last. The courthouse, a substan tial brick building, is a heap of rums, and Mr. Wil liam Collier who was buried beneath the rubbish, is dangerously injured, but yet survives. Tb** jail is nearly lerel with the ground, Mrs E jants is not excepted lo recover; Mrs Coffee is much mangled and not able to move herself, Mr Glasgow was dreadfully injured, though now recovering, and many olher persons have received sumllor wounds. Tho public records are all lost, and tbo fragments of tho buildings scattered through the country for mile. We now take tho liberty respectfully to suggest to our fellow citizen®, who have been providentially pre served from the horrible effects of this desolating storm, that an obligation is imposed apon us, to fur nish prompt and unsolicited aid to oiu afflicted neigh bors. The houseless wanderers, wiiose little all has been swept away in an instant, have a claim upon our liberality which will not surelv be disregarded, nor slowly and reluctantly admitted. Tho chief excel lency of a generous deed consists in its cheerfuluess and promptitude. A little aid in the moment of suf lering is far more valuable than more abundant con tributions tardily ar.d inopportunely bestowed. If some one or more of our responsible citizens, whose leisure will permit of their attention to it, will volun tcer their services and immediately set about making Collections for the benefit of the sufferers at Shclby viilo and Charlotte, We feel convinced that a conside rable amount may bo collected in Nashvilc and its*vi ciinty, which, if promptly transmitted, either in mo tiey or in articles of clothing, provisions or other nc cessarifs, will give consolation and relief to many an afflicted lieait and many a wounded frame LetNash v.lle act on this occasion ir. a manner worthy of her self as the nourishing metropolis and emporium of our In addition to the above details, wo are glad tj loarn that nono oi' the ind'vidtials who were wounded at Charlotte ure dead, but that ail nrc now considered likely to recover. Several instances of almost mirac ulous preservation are mentioned. Some children, for instance, lying in a bed near a large chimney, were entirely buried beneath un immense mass of rubbish, and,being suppacd of course to be killed, were neglected amidst the claims of oilier sufferers for aconsidcjablc tune; when however the pile of su perincumbent stone and timber was removed, they were found not only nlive, but entirely uninjured, ha ying been protected by a pari of the roof which prov identially fell in sucii a manner as to sustain the weight that subsequently came down, withot/l permitting it to reach the little on*’s beneath.

STORM.—On Monday night the 31st tilt, our county, [Rutherford.] was visited by a tornado exc- o ding in seventy any tiling of the kind expel icnced in this part of the state since us first settlement. It commenced blowing a little previous to midnight, 'accompanied with vivid and unintermitted flashes of lightning, and continued with tim.ba-ed fury forabout tu po hours, during which time it blew down (and un rdoicd upwprdsofiifiy houses indifferent parts ot the county; prostrating the fencing and twisted off or to'c up by the roots a vast quantity of timber. Al though many inmates of ihe liuiioos subjected to the tempest, have been sliockmgiy wounded, no deaths have as yet occurred. The family which sustained the greatest injury, accenting to our present informa tion, was trial «n Mr. Philip Foucr, reting eleven miles southeast of this place. I-lis dwelling a laigo two story Jog no-iso, was torn down entirely to the foundation, there not being one log of the building left lying upon another; the old g- nileman was car ried some distance from the house, and found next morning in a state of insensibility, with a log Ijmrr on him.

Before the next number of our paper shall be is sued, the tirst day of JuDe, the day set apart by Geor gia, for the extension of her assumed jurisdiction over the Cherokees, and tho execution of her laws touching the Indians, will have arrived. The da v is now at hand. The Cherokees have looked to it deliberately; they have anticipated its approach; but they are still here, on the land of their fathers. So conscious are r hey of their rights as a people, tliat they have thought it not best to avoid the threaten* ed operation of civilized and republican, not to say rc,fto"f, B’ by Precipitate flight to the Western uilds. 1 hey are still here, bnt not to agree or consent to cotne under these laws. This they never will do; they have protested against tho measure, and will always protest against it. When t he lime comes that the State laws are to bo executed with rigor, as they no doubt will bo, backed by the Executive of the United States, and the Into decision of the Senate, upon the reprobate Chcrokor®, we are unable to say what the effects will be. Tons the future is but darkness. One thing v * know,’ Uere will be suffering. The Cherokees will be a prev to the cupidity of white men; every indignity and ove ry oppression will be heaped upon them” They have already undergone much, when the time is merely in anticipation How will it be, when full license is gi ven to their onDressnrs? Co nmeut is unnecessary. We intreat you respect- f ed reader, to reflect upon the effects of civilized le I g islet ion over poor savages. The laws which are the result of this legislation, are framed expressly against i us, and not a olausa in our favor. We cannot bo o ! , party or a witness in any of tho courts where a ! j white man is a party. Here is the secret. Pull li cense to our oppressors, and every avenue of justice closed against us.

We shall drink it to the very dregs [Cherokee P/irai* f roro tlw New York Daily Advertiser of June T3.~ The establishment of a Regency at the Island of Terceira. by the Eraneroi of Brazil, in favour of his daughter as the rightful Queen of Portugal, winch is now known from official documents in this country, may place our relations with that kingdom in a new, aud possibly in an embarrassing predicament. The premature, end in our opinion ill-advised recognition of Don Miguel, as the sovereign of Portugal, had the eft'*ct to introduce into this country a s-'t of officers and agents, who, of course, after that recognition was promulgated, were officially acknowledged by our executive government This was avowedly dono upon the ground that wo had no concern with tho domestic arrangements of of other nations—that Don Miguel, (whether legally or illegally was no concern ot ours,) was king do facto of Portugal, and therefore we were to pursue our own interest, and t.eat him as such. Accordingly his consuls were officially ac knowledged:—the effect of Which was necessarily to oust from their pablic stations all the represent a lives of former government. Indeed, in one case, the newly constituted agent commenced an action at law against his prdecessor, for the purpose of extor ting from him the archives of his office, claiming a right m himself to the possflss-on of the same, os tho representative of the usurper of tho Portuguese throne; and the Jefendant in this outrageous breach of public law, was actually under the process issued against him It re not improbable Don Pedro may demand satisfaction for tlds illegal treatment of his representative. Now, it seems, the Emperor of Brazil has taken an important step towards the establishment of his daughter in the sovereignty of the kingdom, and has formed a regency in her name at the above-mentioned island- There, it is to be presumed, all the constitu tionalists of Portugal will assemble, for the purpose, whenever the opportunity may present, of dethroning the miserable wretch who has token possession of her rights, and placing i he crown upon her head. We do not learn that Don BJiguel, notwithstanding the force ot our example, has been acknowledged as king ot Por ugal by ifie other powers of Europe. Not having don-- it before, it is n >f. probable that they will relax in their opposition to him, under the present circuiuslnnces of the case. And though Great. Brit, am has shuffled along hitherto with regard to the af fairs of Portugal, ns they recognized the yeunv Queen when she visited Europe a few years since,anti received ant) treated her in England os the lawful claimant of the rhronc; wc do not see how they can avoid e pt»ing her cause, now their friend and oily, the Emperor of Brazil, has thus formally announcod I his determination of establishing her claim, and rc ; covering her legitimate property—the sovereignty of the nation, with winch they have for centuries been closely connected. The Emperor of Brazil and the United States have hil berto maintained *he relations of peace, and com mercial intercourse; and important concerns remain lobe adjusted between our government, and his.— Having now given f.»rm to his daughter's claims ns rightful sov. reign of Portugal, if we p<r ist in the | recognition of l)on Miguel, he cannot fail to consider i sti' li conduct as directly hostile to linn, and Ins poli cy; and it is not an extravagant supposition, that it may seriously affect, and perhaps disturb friendly, and commercial intercourse between lus country and ! ours. Tosiy the least, the acknowledgment of Dm Mi- j guel was a short-sighted measure on the part of our , govern tier)!, altogether uncalled for; and as waseas'ly 1 to be foreseen, has produced no benefits to us,—and' certainly has not had the least tendency to elevate our character among foreign nations T.tpprr ts'innrla Vobrirco—The following is extract ed from a letter from the London Correspondent of the Montreal Gazette: “In this market, the tcell rUrrd Tobacco of Upp-T Canada is considered finer than Virginia, and certain circumstances have induced ns, (on this side.) to think that it would noon become a valuable article of expor , ns merchandize, us* well as paving commissions, m und hyjgu freight to gjltl iiygje afcjp owners.
