I transmit to the House of Represen
tatives, hi compliance with their resoluti
on, ol March the 201 li, such information
not heretofore communicated, as is in
tin- possession of the executive, relating
to too occupation of Amelia Island. If
any doubt had before existed ot'the im
proper conduct of the persons who au
tincized, and of those who were engag
e I in the invasion, and previous occu
pancy of that island ; of the unfriendly
spirit towards the United States, with
which it was commenced and prosecut
ed, and of its injurious efl ot on their
highest interests, particularly b\ its ten
dency to compromit them with foreign
puweis in all the unwarrantable ads of
the adventurers, it is presumed that these
do* uinenls would remove it. It appears
by the letft r t. om M. Razos, agent ot cpin
nioiiore Aury, that the project of seizing
the Morulas wus formed and executed
at a lime when it was understood (hat
Snaiu had resolv'd to cede them to the
United States, and to prevent such ces
sion horn taking effect. The whole pro
ceeding, in every stage and in all i*s cir
cumstances was unlawful. The commissi
on to General McGregor was granted, at
Pliihtdeiptiiu, in diitcl violation of a po
sitive law, and all the measures pursued
under it, bv him, in collecting his force,
mu! directing his movements, were «•
du.i11 v unlawful. With the conduct of
these persons, 1 have always heen un
willing to couiit'ct any of the colonial go
vernments; because I never could be
lieve that they had given the sanction ci
ther to tlie project in its origin, or to
tile measures which were pursued in the
execution of it. These documents coti

nutting the documents lieiewith transmitted,
as containing the information possessed at in,
department, requested by Hint resolution.
In the eom ituniralions received from Don
Manuel II. Aguirre, there are references to
ceil,tm conferences between him* and the se
cretary of state, which appear to require some
expl.in ition.
The character in which Mr. Aguirre pre
sent ml himself was that of a public agent lioin
the government of l.a f’lata, and of private
agent ot that of Chili-his commissions from
both simply qualified him as agent ; hut hi* let
ter from ili« supreme director Pueyrrcdoii, to
the President of the United States, requested
that he might be received with the considera
tion due to his diplomatic character. He hud
no commission axn public min xterofauy rank,
nor any toil power to ntegoeiate as such. Nei
lliei the letter, of whit li he was the hearer,
nor he himself, at his first interviews with the
si 'Telary of slate, suggested that he wa* »u
thniiscd to ask tlie irKiiowiedgmoflt of liis go
vei imieut as independent— a circumstance
which derived additional weight from the fact,
that hi* predecessor, Don Mamo I hompsnp,
had been dismissed by the director I’neyrre
don f«,i having transccHded liis powers; of
which the letter brought by Mr. Agnirre gave
nolice to ttm President.
Jh was some time alter tlie rnmme iirnmcnt

litis thpt Mr. Aguirre wrote tii*1 letter, oiit-r
i"g to enter into n negociation foi coiidueting
a treaty ; tliough admitting that h« had no au
thority to that ctiect from his government. It
may he proper to obscive, that the modi- of
recognition hv concluding a treaty had not
been suggested as the only one piarlical or
usual, hut merely a> that which had l.ceu e

It should be added, that these observations
were connected with others, stating the rea

partially described.
“ The country war in a state of trannuillilv

Several odteers, Imwover, who had deserted
the canseof gen. Artcgas andjoitied Iheenemy,
on being taken, were immediately shot. r
“ By letters from St. Jago, it was stated.that
all the troops stationed in the capital had
marched for tire coast under the command of
Hen. San Martin—who, by tire last am-ounts,
w as encamped in the neighborhood of Valpa
i.riso, with 5 to fiOOO men under him. The
same letters mentioned that a very general spi
rit of patnotisiii prevailed among the people,
attended by a firm resolution to maintain, at
all hazards, Ihe independence of Iheir country.
Measure*, however,had been taken forth*pre
[ serration of property both in the capital and on
the coast, and incase of invasion, by it* remov

I he mo.< I arnica tile i elation* appeared to ex

general at one time that war would have been
declared by the former .11 cr/n-equeuce of the
captnie of two Portuguese vessels by a Buenos

• he result of this conduct towauls them, is,
'hat the patriots frequently come within the
Porttnrie-e lines at Monte \ idvo, and entet
the city without molestation. The Portuguese
at Moiite Video are now (or in Decemberlast)
plentifully supplied with provisions of everv
' kind from their enemies, though at on<- tinic
the greatest scat city existed. As the Portu
guese are no donbt aiming at the sovereignty
of the country on the ca«t side of the rivet , the
policy ot opening a friendly intercourse with
tin- inhabitants,may be the means best calculat
ed to attain llieir ends. Their hostilities are
chiefly directed against Artegas, whom they
must uwtjuith before nny change of government
can be etlecfnd. This general rulosduspotically,

WioapSHtos, March irt).-—The long expect
cd proposition ot Mr. Clay has been made,
ami is m full debate in tin: House of Kcpreseu
tatives, having reference 'o the acknowledg
of Ihe Independence ol (he Unit'd Pio
vincea ol Kin La i’lata. The Speaker has
broken ground at a greater distance from th«
object Ilian we believe liad been generally
expected, Ids proposition being to npppropri*
ute a sum for the outfit and a year’s salary of 4
Minister to the government ol La Plata, w beli
ever the President shall think fit to send one.
1 he proposition, therefore, does not contem
plate any dirvrt change iu the actual state of
our relations, but anexpression of the leadnivvs
ot Congress to second such a measure as is
proposed, when tiie Executive shall deem it
expedient to retort to it.
i he proposition lias covered ground enough,
however, to form the foundation of an animated
debate,id w hich the w hole policy ot »lie United
States, in respect to the South A men can pio
vmces, ami incidentally as to H|| the European
powers, ami to Spam particularly, have been
brought into view. It is not far ii« to predict
tiie irvitli ot i:f,s proposition. especially since
wo have recently billed in anticipating the fate
ot the lull to amend the acts for enforcing out
neutral relations, whirl) has posted the House
of Itepreseutativrs in an amended shape, in
stead «t being ludeiimlely postponed, as we
<*i trnnhl he. It 'etpoioit to
*av, that we shall keep pace with the debate,
and present it as soon as it ran possibly be pre
pared for the press, considering it m utloroiug
luminoni views of a question, of : • tooch inter
est as any uow agitated in the I’ntlvd States.
... i A of. ini.
' 'I be I.ociiments transmitted to Congress by
the President, yesterday, were read too lau* to
enable us to take such a view of tlietn as we
could wish. That duty, however, shall be
attended to in our next. Meanwhile we advise
the reader to peruse the interesting Message
which is published to-day. respecting the origin
ol ti.c Se.vimcijp W\k. The aspect ofatlairs
iti that quarter becomes every das more inter
esting. * | lb.
1 he papers laid before; Cotigress dtir
ing the two last days Have shod much
light on the question now pending in the
House of Representatives, as well a* on
several others which have been lately «
gited. Those who have assailed the go
vernment nit the score of the suppression
: of the rendezvous at Amelia Island, n,a v
| nib their jaded pens; fresh food is uf
fored for I heir tage by new proof of the
correctness of tiiat measure of the Flxccii
liv“- f Net. J„t.
Tiie Debate yet continues in the House
of Representatives on the general qur ti
ou icspectilig the South American pro
vinces, and grows even more animated
as it proceeds. The quest on 01 a ai
with Spain is almost as much debated as
the ques ion mtnally before the House,
such is tin latitude of the discussion.

Meath American affair*. The/iic/.r are before

•freely give om opinions upon them.
U e must improve thi* opportunity, however,
be foie i: be too late, to protest against the pro
position ot M r. Clay to carve out a mission to
L i Flata, under the guise of an appropriation
to that object. Mr. Clay is a friend r ft he pat

fen the right hand ol fellowship to sin has have
attained a rank among the nations of the earth.
Mo does many a man who will *leru!y pretest i
against his proposition.
We take the question upon its own merits
only, l ire proposition of Mr. Clay is vrrin*.
U e believe it i* a new case in the* hi*toi > of

W'c believe this step to lie perfectly unne

warm and sincere Miami of the Patiiot cause.
V e have taken the utmost pains to ascertain
this tact. We brliiv* he might safely recog
