HOUSE OF REP ft ? 7 ’/pjr January fb. William Kennedy a representativ e from North Carolina, vice Thomas Blount, de ceased, appeared and took his seat. Mr. G hoi son, fptjn the Committee of Claims, reported a bill f..r the relief nf Ed ward Kean and Aquilla Leaver, which was twice read and made the order for Monday next. 1 MILITIA BILL. The. bill supple mentary to the act for arming th* whole body of the Militia and for classing the same, was read the third time. Mr. Quincy rose and opposed the bill with his usual warmth, and at considerable length. Mr. Kobe rtson replied to Mr. Quincy, & advocated the bill. Mr. T allmadge followed in opposition to the hill. Mr. Wright and Mr. S»ow spoke in sup port of the bill, and Mr. Bigelow against it. .VIr. Nelson « ppnsed the bill «>n the ground tb it it is not so constructed as to satisfy the various and conflicting interests of the dif ferent sections of the Union ; and from his dislike to the provision authorising substi tutes, &c. although approving the addition al provisl n for arming the midtia ; and concluded by moving to recommit the hill, to the committee of the whole House for a mendment. ‘ The question on recommitment was ne gatived. For recommitment 46 Against it 51 Mr. Uhea supported the passage cf the Mr. Williams followed in support of the bill 8c in reply toMr. Quincy and Mr. Tall mad ge. 1 lie question on the final passage of the hill was i hen ti.kenby vras and nays, and carried, ayes 67, m.ys 48. The engrossed bill providing compensati on to Captain Hull and the o/Tcers & crew of frigate Constitution, for t he capture and destruction of the Hritish frigate Ciucrriere was read a third time. [The hill authori zes agr. nt of 8 50,000, and not 8 100,000 as stated in our last.] Mr. M’Kec opposed the passage of the billon the ground that the President has no power or authority to expend the public money in gratuitous grants to individuals. Mr, Sawyer stated that lie wished to make tonic remarks in reply to Mr. M’ Kee, but from the lateness of the hour (3 o’clock.) and an indisposition wbh which hr was oppressed, it was not now in his pow er—he i he re fore movi d an adjournment, which was carried. ; yes 44. February 1. Mr. Morrow, from the Committee of pub lic Cauds, to whom had been referred the bill from the Senate for carrying into effect the Report of the commissioners appointed in 1803, &.C. respecting the Vazzr o claims, reported certain amendments to the same ; and the bill and amendments were referred to a committee of the whole. CONSTITUTION & GUF.RRIF UR. The House resumed the order of the day on the bill making comoensation to the offi cers and crew of the Constitution for the destruction of the fr.gate Guerricre—The bill being on its third reading. Mr. Sawyer spoke in support of the bill and in reply to Mr. M'Kce. Mr. Dawson spoke also warmly in favor of the bill. Mr. M’Kce replied, also wPh considera hie warm'll. Mr. Stow advocated tlie hill. The argument against this bill was, tlial it Would |,r setting a precedent which wouh be considered authoritative in fature casts that It was giving a dotation for an act of duty only-, tho* ga'lantly perfumed; n was rewarding a service, whuh, had it !>ccn rendered on htul, would hnu1 icr.tivcd no remuneration, ax experience hod proved in *hf case «>f the Timiecanne expedition ; and tint it was contrary to justice t«* confer pecuniary rewards oh one class of our civi sens in exclusion of others. In favor of‘he hill, it was stated that the captured vessel, it brought into port, would have produced six tin es the amount now proposed to »>«• .:l lowed to her ; and that the captors ouujht not to incur a total loss from the destructi on of the vessel, winch the fear of Iter fal ling into the hands < f the enemy had ren dered necessary to the public service. I» was urged, that if any city in the United States had to legislate oh this subject, hve times as much would have been awarded as is now proposed. All the gentlemen who spoke offi. red the tribute of ti»i*ir respect to the gallantry and conduct of the officers and seamen of our public vessels. 1 he question on the passage of the hill was decided asfollow* : yeas 55 nays 5&. So the bill was rejected. On motion of Mr. Cheves, the House re S'dve 1 it self into a committee of the whole Mr. Breckenridge in the chair, rn the bill to increase the salar'es ot the Secretaries of the War and Navy Departments. Mr. Cheves rose, ami stated »hat the sala ries of these officers heretofore had not been considered as arduous ; but that now the duties of these officers had become equally arduous, required equal talent, incurred to equal responsibility with thcother 2 offi cers, and were liable to equal expence’. It had been therefore thought by the com inittee of Ways ank Means, that the sala ries ot all the Secretaries ought to be pla ced oil an ( qual footing. He moved to fill the blnak in the bill for the anv unt of the salary wilh/Eve thousand dollars, the pre sent salary of the Secretaries ol State and Treasury. Aster a few observations from Mr. I'ind ley in favor of the bill— The motion was agreed to by a very small majority. Mr. Rhra moved to amend the bill bv incorporating therein a provision for raising lie salary of the l»ost-Master-General of tl.<- Lnited Slates from 1000 to 1500 dol lars Mr Tallmadge moved to amend the a mendinent. so as to increase the salary ol 'he* Assistant Host Master General to 2t00 dollars-Motion lost The question on Mr. Rhea’s motion was then decided in the negative by a small ma jors . I he committee rose and reported ihe hill and the quc.-stinti beioj^ stated on concur rercc with the committee of the whole on the principle of the bill.— Mr. Randolph stated his objections to the in asure. He was onpo-ed to the bill, not bec ause he did not believe the salaries, ab - rattedly considered, with reference to the grade of talent which ought to grace these offices, might be too low ; but hecause compared with the salaries of the judges & other officers of the United Si ates, their sa iarics were, comparatively already to high. He drew a comparison bet ween the fate of this bill ai.^ of that just rejected for com pensating the officers and crew of the Con stitution, unfavorab.e to the decision ot the House on these two case;. He Was not for lavisniug treasure on those who were bask ing in sunshine at home, and withholding with a niggardly hand the remuneration justly due to the merits and exploits of the j latter. Mr. Cheves replied. He fully agreed with Mr. Randolph tlisit salaries of other of ficers were too jo w j but it was no reason against placingPlicerafif the same grade on an equal footing, that other officers were too low The greatest objection to the pre sent inequality of the salaries of the Heads of Departments was the inferi .ritv which it implied in two of these officers to thcother invo, though all wer4 placed in the cabinet on an equal footing. See. He too .lamented the decision of the House which had just ta ken place ; but it was no reason whatever against the measure now before the House. Mr. Randolph spoke ir. explanation, and added some other remarks to those he had before made. He particularly objected to an increase attfiis moment, of the salaries oi those who had placed the nation in its present situation. 1 he equality of com pen sation would not place these officers on an equal footing, he contended. The one would still take precedence of the other, in redicu ious imitations of the customs of foreign courts. Equality of salary would not place these officers on the same footing; it could not, as he said, compensate for the incqual ity created hy the inferiority of intellect, supposing that to exist, &c. Mr. Cheves rejoined, and replied to some of Mr. R’s. remarks. Mr. fcii.fo spok<« in favor of the hill, and stated tha* it had been reported without a nv reference to personal considerations, tor it had been laid before the House before it was known what gentlemen were to fill these two offices. The vote on concurrence with the com mittee in fixing the compensation at 5000 dollars, was as follows : For concurrence 50 Against it Gf> Mr. Cher , s moved that the bill lie on ihctitble—Motion lost. ^ 1 lle kill then indefinitely postpon A bill from the Senate for the relief of nheuben Atwater, and a bill for the relief of \V ashing’on L.ee, were severally twice read and committed.

Department of State, Jan. 6th 1813. kokkigw —t--— - Nkw York, January 29. LATEST FROM LIVERPOOL. Last evening arrived at this port the shin Swift, Howland, from Liverpool. fron, whence he sailed on the §.h of I )cce nber. Capt. Howland has favored the Editors of the M. rcantile Advertiser with a file of Lon don papers to the 7th of December, but their contents were anticipated by the arrival of the brig Marmion, from London, which ves sel furnished us with London pa tiers of the 10th of December. Capt. H informs us, that the British Go vernment had refused to extend the time given to American vessels with Licenses, and would not furnish any more to bring Goods to Am erica. The cartel ship Pennsylvania Packet, had arrived at Liverpool from Philadelphia, and •he passengers were not allowed to land un til their passports were sent up to London, and others sent back to Liverpool for tiiem. The brig Priscilla, from Baltimore, for Oporto, arrived at Liverpool on the 9th of December, a prize to the letter of marque Olive Branch. On the 13th of January, in lat. 40, 20, long. 58,57, Capt. Howland fell in with the Spa nish brig General Ballesteros, a prize to the French privateer Dilligwnt, Capt. Grassin The General Ballesteros was captured on the 1st of December, and was ordered for Philadelphia, hut having experienced seve ral severe gales, and suffered very much in spars, sails and rigging, the ptize crew bc ine worn out with fatigue, and destitute of provisions, thought proper to abandon her, and embatked on*board of the Swift, but previously set fire to her The General Ballesteros was from Ma deira, laden wine anti salt, for Philadelphia Captain Howland, previous to her Doing burnt, took out 15 pipes of wine, and somt almonds, vd-deii he has brought into *his port in the Swift. t We further learn from Capt. II. that an Order from London, reached Liverpool three days previous to his sailing, acquiring every American vessel to he strictly searched, for the detection of Goods contraband of w ir. Capt. Howland V, brought Despatches from our Agent in London, to the Secretary of State. Extract of a letter from a Orritlemav in Bordeaux to hi* Corrrsfnmdent in thi* City, dated 13/A October. “ Mr Barlow lias positively received from the Emperor assurances of his high satisfac tion on account of the “glorious conduct,” as he expresses it, of the Americans, in con tending with England for the maintainance of their Maritime Rights; and his M jesty promisses to grant to their trade eveiy lari lity. The Minister who was appointed some time ago to negf>ciate with Mr. B. (in the place of the Duke of Bassano, who was too much occupied) has received orders to re new the negociations, and bring them to an immediate termination. The Minister of Marine has instructed the Maritime Pre fects to treat the prizes sent into French ports by American privateers, agreeably to the Convention of 18(0; and that the Ame rican Cor.sulifare to liave extensive jurisdic tion over them. He adds, "the Cu-tom House will of course exercise their accus tomary authority to see tha* the Revenue Laws are compled with.” VV'e shall short ly know how the Minister of Commerce means to treat the affair; we may infer fa vorably, as all the Ministers act suijordinate to the will of the Emperor; no one. of ihcm dare take on himself a decision of any tm portnnee but in consequence of ho will_ which serves as a general guide to tin va rious branches of administration. Amo. i an privateers need not now, in my opinion, he sitate to enter our ports, or to send in their prizes. I have mysrif seen the copy of the Minister of Marines’ letter above mention cd. “ The schboner Warwick has just arrived from Boston with fish, and the schooner Pi lot from Baltimore with W.
