«t the horizon, to windward, the topsails of a ship,
which »« concluded must be an enemy’t cruizvr, and
towered our sails to prevent nur being seen ; not, with

paintings of tin: Panorama, tho Ch-gan and the Lamps,
were taken into the captain's cuhin, ns curinslticr., to be
examined ; and in die evening they tried some of the

I was birthed in a hammock between decks, nnd
ftlersed with the midshipmen, from whom I received
numy civilities, particularly from Mr. Conner, the

—We were on board the Forth four days; and on the

By one of those happy events which nocut
oftly hy the special favor of Divine Omnipotent-, the
atnaio'u and criminal intentions of the French enliine'
have just come to light. By discovering to as those
du k machinations, God has leien pleased to confound
the wicked in their execrable designs; and by enlight
ening us as to our destiny and mir true interest, to point
out to us the meaus ofntir preservation.
Frauoo .Medina, one of the secret agents to the b -
ron tie Malnnet, minister of the marine and of the co
lonies, of' his majesty Louis XVIII. sent to sow trouble
and discord, an execrable ami favorite project of the
Frcuch, while fulfilling his odious mission, has fallen
into our power. By nis own eonfeswon, m>uti his ex
autiuR'inn, by the documents arid scen-l instructions of
which he was the bearer, »• arc confirmed in our o
jrinion respecting the atrocious designs of our implaca
ble enemies.
Hat thins! A Inays inaccessible to the most flattering
promises of the French, we have given to you proofs
of nor firmness in the most critical mwn"nt», and we
have nover iWdvrvfed upon the jurt that wc ought to

these abominable t> ntrts, in the delirium of their pas
sion, dare yet to make their infamous proposals: hut
how thev derieve themselves! l*tt them then know
that our irrevocable determination is to fight them un
til death ; and should we even he alone, we would still
fight them. My - :ne i* hcontne.hort ible to them ;—
they no longer pronounce it, but writh convulsive mo
tions ; we giory in inspiring them with theae senti
Hayians! Since the commencement of our career,
our? induct has always been frank and loyal; we have
no secret to keep; the srelfare of the country is our
6i»prem» law, ami imposes U|,on nstlic duty of commu
nicating to you all the information that we receive. Sc
•which concern* the destiny of the nation. We have
therefore ordered that the dispatches of the French go
vernment, the originals of which are deposited in our
archives, shall be made public through the medium of
th«pre:j, in order to give tb> m all possible publicity;
and dial the traitor Franco Mcdinr, that KbcrticWt h
goi t of the French, shall hr exposed before the people
in ,ar cup'rtnl, that each of you may have die privilege
ofintcirotating him.
Has linns ! It is not neectaary that we should make
to vu any comment upon these documents; they speak
for (hems Ives; each one ol von wdl read Ike pridccis
of our ly routs and the fate that they are preparing for
you; you will knowhow to distinguish your true em>
mi«s, and to measure the abysi into which ttiev wish to
plunge you ; the truth is come to light! Oprti your
