Gales anti Seaton. !CtIi ters of the National Intelligencer, did me the favor yesterday to Send me a eppy of No. IT, vnj. 30. of your Register, contain ing a letfer addressed to me. which l read with much attention, and felt myself grati fied and flattered by the notice width yuu have taken of me. i nan previously renu tne iteview to which you would have drawn my attention, and although unacquainted with ;the name of the author until it was made known to me by your letter, l was fully persuaded it. was the production of one of those pen sioned writers, who have for some time past been employed to blacken our Nation al character,'hoping thereby to make that of their own country appear by the con trast more fair. I consider myself used in this instance only as a stalking-horse. In ti:e course of my narrative I have told sonic truths and expressed some feel ings respecting the conduct and character - of British naval officers, which has drawn on me their resentment, as well as flint of the Reviewers. Mv reasons for making known those truths, anil expressing those feelings, have not yet been satisfactorily explained by me, and to you, sir, I give an explanation, as the first, and only English man, who lias ever, to mv knowledge, ex pressed his disapprobation of that system of persecution which has been practised a gainst me, from the commencement of hos tilities to the present moment. You. sir, have seen your prints teeming with abuse against tne: you, sir, have been Ynv only advocate in England. ! hi*ve si lently borne the insults that have been heaped on me, although I have seen my self hung in effigy beside our venerable ami bighlv respected chief magistrate : ev ery epithet that could disgrace and add in famy to the character of man has been inost bountifully lavished on me: I have been cowardly deceived, and basely attacked, while confiding in the neutrality of a port and in the word of a British officer, and while he professed to me gratitude and friendship. I have been cruelly arrested in mv progress to mv nqui country, while confiding in the sacred character of a flag of truce, wantonly insulted in my own feelings,and witnessed the insults to which, my brave officers and men were subjected, whose wounds and sufferings became a mockerv to a cruel and overbearing enemy 1, sir, only escaped the future persecutions and insults that were intended inW’bv flight at the risk of my life, in an oped boat. T have been, since, vilely traduced by ev ery petty whelp in the naval service of VUUI Killg; ■ nave UUVII admirals and your captains as being be yond the pale of honor—threats have of iicially been held forth toward ine, and 6carce.Iv an Englishman except those who have been in mv power, but has caught the contagion. M v prisoners have had a different opinion of mv conduct and ‘cha racter, until forced to join in the general current ol defamation, Such conduct on \he part of your people produced feelings of resentment in my breast, and under such circumstances it should not have oc casioned surprize flint 1 have in some in stances expiessed them. 1 have told some truths, of which let those judge who best know British officers. \ have confin ' wd myself to the events of my cruise, I have related none of those events of a do mestic nature, the recollection of which still keeps alive the feelings of every true American:—I have not told of the conduct of admiral (’ockbum, of the massacres’pn our frontiers, nor of the various robberies, rapes, murders, Ike. which have been pene trated by the orders and under the eves of the commander in chief, f have told none y ol these things; I leave this task to some future historian, who, while he vindicates inr character, will paint in their true co lor* the heroes of your navy, on whom 1 “ blushing honors’* have been heaped, for practising unequalled cruelties against our unprotected and unoffending citizens. Yofir Took and your Anson must not es cap*.;—they have been marshalled against me, and tfieir ashes will be disturbed. The Spaniard will tell of the wanton de struction of Ppvta^ml of cruelties to his countrymen on the one part, while other pens will tell of the wanton destruction of the ntiifTcnding uatives on thw other, until hcavch, provoked at the innumerable out rages against humanity, consigned thi man, who i% Jives for ages,” to the ventre ance of an injtued and jusilv exasperatei people, who, by depriving him of his life gave to him his innnoc tality. The conduct of all may be strh lly scrutinized, and those who have been for a long time yout nation’s boast, may pi-vein the end your nation’s reproach.—-You have yourself giv en a striking example of the change that may be produced in pubfc opinion, by the pen of a single individual who employs himsell in (lie search anil exposition of | truth. M e have also pens in tins part of 'the world, able to vindicate our national character from unjust aspersions, by mak-j ing known truths : and the book entitled the Exposition of (he Carnes and Charac ter id the late War, iva specimen of what can be done here in that way. It has re tnaiiieil thus long, unanswered, and wc may therefore presume that it i-> unan swerable. It will be time enough, when we receive England’s reply to that paper, to better the abuse which ha3 b«*en thrown out against us in the criticism on my Jour nal. YV e arc in n«> haste : we iiitend to take our own time : and should we reply, all your heroes shall have their share of no tice: even Morgan whose name has been placed on tue same page with mine, may be found on a clear examination to bear a stronger likeness, in some of the most prominent features of his character, to certain naval heroes of Knglaud, whose names are more famiji>r in this country than in their own. Morgan, it must be. re membered, was an Englishman, and his historian, who was also one, begs that it may not be considered either a compliment ora reproach to say, that the loading cha racters among tiie buccaniers were all Englishmen. Allow me, sir, to make a small extract from the history of the man to whom the reviewers consider that it would be a disgrace to compare me. You, can make what erasures you please, and fill up the spaces with such names as will l)PSt Sflit fur min/ ** They spared in their cruelties no sex nor condition, for, as to religious persons ami priusts, they granted them less quarter than others, unless they could produce a considerable sum for . ran •join. Women were no better used, ex cept they submitted to their filthy lusts: loi such as would not consent were treated with all the rigor imaginable. Captain Morgan gave them no good example on this point,” &cv8tc.—Page 192, Hist. Uuc caniers of America. Speaking of the destruction of Panama, he says, I he same da}’, about noun, he caused lire privately to "be set to several great edifices of the city, nobody knowing who were the authors thereof, much less on what motives captain Morgan did it, which are unknown to this day. The fire increased so, that before night the greater part ul the city was in a flame. Captain Morgan pretended the Spaniards had done it, perceiving that his own people reflected on him for tint action. Many of the Spaniards and some of the pirates did what they could, cither to quench the flame, or oy blowing up houses with gun powder, ami pulling down others, to stop it, but in i vain: tor in less than half an hour, it con | sinned a whole street.” Page 1R9. Such was captain Henry Morgan, 1 lie gallant” and “ disinterested” hero of the learned critic, whose attention has been so forcibly drawn to iny journal. Of Ann Honey, his other pattern of nautical excel lence, I have not been able jo obtain any particulars. Such bright examples, in deed, are less familiar to us on this side of the Atlantic than on the other. I should presume. Ir on her name, however, that she was of English origin, anil, no doubt, belonged to that clas9 of British officers tor whose actions,the editor of the above mentioned history, says, in his preface, he w ill not take upon himself to apologise, since even in the most regular (British) troops, and best disciplined armies, daily enono ties are committed, which the strict est vigilance cannot nievcnt. The remarks of the editor are indeed correct, and his whole book seems to shew, in comparison with the later records of Bri tish heroism, that although his naval conn tijriuei#, hi mgn i iiiiK, IItivt! m smiit; res pects degenerated, yet they have not laid aside muny of their ancient propensities. I am persuaded, sir, that you think with me that I have shewn a great deal of pati ei ce and forbearance, liow I have deser ved the resentment of Englishmen, I'do not know, unless it was by doing my duty to toy country ; but, in doing it, I endea vored to make the evils of war bear as light ly as possible on the individuals who fell in my power. When hostilities ceased be tween the two countries, they ceased with inc, until my indignation was roused by this fresh attack in the Quarterly Review, noted and approved of in the Naval t’hrn nicle of March, shewing the connexion still existing between my old enemies, the scribblers ami navy officer?. 1 bad hoped, that the late war, by mak ing us better acquainted with each othei would have made us respect each other the more ; but it really appears that the breach I between us grows wuier and wider. We ! bear the Hoggings we got during the war | without murmuring : why should Knglish ' ineu be less p.vtient than ourselves ? Nay. we not only bore their triumphs on the o cean.but we let them crack their jokes ai us on the Serpentine river, without com plaining. We have no objection to their amusing themselves in any such harmlctt sports, out, for Hr aven’s sake, and their own, let them c^ase their abuse ; for while they labor to disgorge the venom am spleen which are engendered in tlieii breasts, they only proclaim to the worh the mortification which rankles there. 1 thank you sincerely for the preser you intend me—and I shall not regret tin abuse that has been bestowed on me, sine it has been the nicatu of puitling me ii - possession of so tlisgracefu! an evidence o s tlie fully and imbecility of the !>ritis|i go * vernmeot.

We can only hope that this last glaring instance oi perfidy wiil convince government tlic folly of ciitering into treaties of any kind*trith unprin cipled Lai banana. . Loxdo.x, June 11 Our readers will recollect that we never augu red any tiling safe or beneficial front the arrange ments lately entered into by Lord Exmouth with tlie regency of Algiers ; and we now regret to find, that they have in every respect proved worse than abortive. Information was yesterday received at Ll ,.\d’» from Madrid and Carlhagc na, of Ute recommencement of the system ot rob ■ <cvy an'l depredation by the Algerine pirates a gainst the British trade’. Their hostility is open ■nd undisguised ; they arc again audaciously and nfainottsly at their old practice ot capturing our vessels and send mg thdir crews into slavery ami •inprisonment, whilst a British fleet is still in the Mediteirsne-. n In one instance it seems they tarried th^r outrages so far as to siezc-the En glish Y'ice'-onsul, and sent him prisoner with the captured mariners into the interior lhe Spaniards being informed that similar perfidious measures were about to be adopted against them mmedlately left the place with eleven vessels, leaving all their property behind them. 1 he absurdity of placing reliance upon any treaty firmed with such hardened robbers is, we trust, at kng’h mr.de manifest and it cannot be doubt ed that the present unprovoked outrages and depredations will lead to the punishment ot the • fienders, winch to the disgrace of the mara t.nV’powers of Europe, has been too long ami ■njnriously delayed From die Petersburg Gazette lhe French napers have copied the treaty between Russia St Prussia, relative to Poland.

Tlic intell gence transmitted yesterday by Mr. Tupper, our Consul General at Barcelona, relative to the seizure of British persons and property by the Algerines, has produced as t might have been expected, one general feeling of indignation in die British public. It remains to be enquired how far there may be a possibility of its turning out to he mere report. Mr. Tup per received the information only at second hand from the masters of Spanish vessels who had es caped, and whose fears may have augmented the real evd. On the one hand, v.e cannot readily conceive that the Algerines would have dared to incur our resentment; on the other, if a fanati cal mob lias influenced the government of that, country to acts of violence—a circumstance of not uilfrequeut occurrence there—it becomes ne cessary that they should he instantly made to feel the whole weight of onr vengeance. Al giers itself is a strong place ; but the Moors are little accustomed to such attacks as those of otir seanien a..d soldiers, and are perhaps incapable of deriving from the strength of their fortifica tions those means of d< fen e which they would furnish to a inure.civitizcd and scientific people. As to their frigates, which arc stout budt, and fully manned, the want of discipline on board them gives our ships even of an inferior class the most decided superiority. HOUSE OK COMMONS. ALOr.lUHM.

Our government is essential ly occupied in establishing commercial re lations with that Island—and French ves vels not being admitted there, many ad vantages and facilities are granted to fo reign vessels engaged in this commerce ; accordingly articles coining from St. Uu miugo, even in foreign vessels, if they are in return for a French cargo will be placed on the same footing with articles coining from French Colonies. This is announ ced to our authorities by a ministerial cir cular. Extract of a letter from Amsterdam, dated June 8, 1816. “ Several cargoes of Coffee and Sugms continue to arrive from your port, which cannot fail to turn out most wretchedly, and like adventures cannot be advised, when we receive such vast quantities from onr own colonics. Tcbaccoes maintain their prices, but this is only owing to the prudence ot ladders, who are anxious to support the market ;—tiie demand is li mited, being confined to home consumpti on ; our stock is considerable, but we pro mise ourselves a revival of demand by or ders from the Upper Countries.

The imports into this port siucc the 1st. a* mount to 12, 382 bags, and we expect that in this month they will be again nearly 50. 000. With this rapidly cnoreasing stock, the prices which have already given way will we expect decline further. This week the sales here only amount to 2410 bags, and there is an election here. Yesteiday there was a public sale of 700 bags of New 0 leans, the whole of which went off very well, fully equal to anv thing done at pre sent at private sale. .Sea Islands have de clined 2.1 per lb. and it is almost impossi ble to ellcct sales to any extent i at the Rome time theRtock is large,and the import 01 the next desciiption of fine Cotton, viz..

We are sorrs to add to this discouraging a*countt as far as regards present sales, that (Tie demand for Cotton Goods remains very dull, and tl.a: for Twist slackens, insomuch that we com pute the consumption has fnllcn off 1000 bags a week. If it does not exceed that, and does not fall off more during the re mainder of the year, there will we expect be still a scarcity, & prices toward Septem ber will improve again. “ Kice during the last month has been in considerable demand, both for home use and export, but the export de mand lias again relaxed in consequence ol arrivals from America direct into the jKirts of Holland and Hamburg, and the prices are rather lower. “ Flaxseed was dull till the middle ol the month, when the. crushers bought all they could get at 40s r 45* per hhd* fui -(seed suitable only f*r crushing and 44<j s ' I iGs. for fist years* growth. ! “ L i*t month G2f hhds.
