TUESDAY, APRIL 5, 1825.
A large body of Cod, resembling the Can nel Cool of England, has been discovered on the Savannah river, above Augusta. A spe cimen has been sent to New-York, and is now exhibiting at 63, FoltoiMtreet. United States Bank Stock has taken a sud den rise in Philadelphia.—Twenty per cent um advance has been refused—twenty-one and a half being demanded. Sales were made in New-York, on Friday last, at twenty and a half. At London it was quoted, on the 19th February, at £24 5a with dividend from the 1st January, 1825. The Lmtimlk Advertiser states, that the new trial of Dksoa commenced at Cynthiana on the 14th uho. There are now fourteen vessels, some of them ships of the first class, on the stocks at Kensington, adjacent to Philadelphia. A snow storm commenced here on Satur day afternoon, about 4 o'clock, and continued Until four on Sunday morning. The wind was from the North East, and high during the whole time. In the eariy part of the even ing it rained considerably, but the house-tops were covered with snow in the morning. 't he Southern mail could not be landed from the steamboat in consequence of the gale, and no Northern mail was received last evening. The following interesting letter we copy from the National Intelligencer of yesterday. It is a communication from Dr. Diuki, of Lexington, Kentucky, to the editors and satisfactorily supports the declaration made by Mr. Ciat in his address, that he informed Dr. Drake, and other gentlemen, before he left the state, of his intention to rote for Mr. m preference to General Jackson. Lexington, Ken. March 21, 1825. Gentlemen At different limes, before Mr. Clay left this place for Washington, last Fall, I had conversa tions with him on the subject of the choice of a President by the House of Representatives. In all of them, he •xpressed himself m having, long be fore, decided in favor of Mr. Adams, in case the contest should lie between that gentleman and General Jacksox. Mv last interview with him was, I think, the day before his departure, when' he was still more explicit, as it was then certain that the election would be transferred to that tribunal, and highly probable that he would not be among the number returned. In the course of this conversation, I took oc casion to express my sentiments with respect to the delicate and difficult cir cumstances under which he would be placed—on which he remarked, that I could not more fully apprehend them than he did himself, but that nothing should deter him from the duty of giv ing his vote, and that no state of things could arise, that would justify him in preferring General Jackson to Mr. Amws, or induce him to support the former. So decisive, indeed, were his declarations on this subject, that had he voted otherwise than he did, I shculd have been compelled to regard him as deserving that species of cen sure which has been cast upon him for consistently adhering to an early and deliberate resolution. When the suggestion of a sinister vote on his part first reached us, I felt disposed to offer; without delay, the testimony which no citizen is at liber ty to withhold, when he believes ano ther to be unjustly accused of a crimi nal offence; but, presuming that the result of the inquiry instituted in the House of Representatives would pre vent a reiteration of the imputations cast upon him, I thought it unnecessa ry to obtrude my humble testimony upon the public. Finding this, howe ver, not to be the case, and regarding the character of the nation, as well as that of two distinguished individuals, to be involved in the unceasing repe tition of charges which have been kept alive and disseminated merely by repetition, I consider it my duty to op pose to their further diffusion the state ments which I have mrde, and, without hesitation, shall leave it with the im tartial and intelligent people of the United Stales to appreciate my mo tives, and the value of the evidence which I have, spontaneously, offered to their consideration. Very respectfully, vour ob’t servant, DAN. DRAKE, M. D. The ‘■private opinion* of Gen. Jackson,” as said to have been expressed to Mr. H. are now generally acknowledged to be an artful impo sition. Mr. Niles, of the Register, so consi dcr^them, and gives the real private opinion* of the General, received from his own lips.— In speaking of the Nashville letter, Mr. Niles thus remarks r * ■ l This thing has not been before notic ed in the Rkgistkr, because of the proof which it bore on the face of it that it was a miserable manufacture, &nd should not now have been referred to, but for the reason that several friends have invited attention to it/-* Enough has been said to skew what is mv opinion of it; but, being on the sub jectof “private opinions, I shall give the substance of some, which the ge neral expressed to me, on the morning of the 8th February, the day on which the president was chosen, that were a like honorable to himself, as they may be useful to others. Though 1 had fre quently seen and conversed with him, during the last, and then present ses sion of congress, and always with much freedom on his part, and real respect on mine—and,notwithstanding we had spent many hours together, he never before had referred to the presidential question. He seemed resolved to avoid it, and it was not proper in me to press it upon him: but now he spoke of the elections made by the people, and of that about to be made by the house of representatives, with a great deal of frankness and feeling. With the form er he expressed himself gratified—the poll that had been made for mm was honorable, and he was thankful for the confidence which the people had reposed—he could never forget it: but there was no assumption of merit in himself that he deserved—it was the people’s own business, and they had done as they pleased. He then express ed himself after the following manner: He had no doubt but that a large por tion of the citizens would be satisfied w ith the choice about to be made, and he seemed to think it most probable that it would devolve on Mr. Adams. He further observed, that many, in his opinion, were unpleasantly situated, seeing that they were compelled to act either against Mr. Adams or himself— but that this was a matter of small im portance compared with an adherence to the provisions of the constitution, and the prompt and harmonious elec tion of a president, which now belong* ed to the representatives of the states. It was well, he said, that persons should differ in opinion, that truth might be more certainly ascertained—-but he added, with that earnestness and force, which is peculiar to him, tve should al ways recollect that, in maintaining our own opinions, tve naturally grant the right to others of supporting theirs, or lose every pretension to republicanism: and he further remarked, it was a matter of small moment to the people who was their president, provided he adminis tered the government rightfully. Opinions like these were familiar to gen. Jackson. No doubt, circum stanced as he was, he desired to be e lected—and who would not? but it would not be an easy thing to make one believe that either he or Mr. Adams could have descended to any act of meanness or dirty intrigue, to have obtained that most honorable station. His wnoie conduct, after the election, was stamped with a magnanimity as distinguished, as the moderation of his successful competitor has been remark able: and those wlro ought to be the best acquainted with the facts, certain ly believe that there is a great deal of good feeling existing between the par ties just named. They were competi tors, rivals, if you please, but not ene mies. The time has nearly arrived, when a dispassionate history of the late elec tion may he written, with a hope that the various circumstances attending it, from first to last, will be dispassionate ly considered; and, believing that I have some knowledge of the principles which influenced many things that happened, as well as of the events that occurred, it is my design to review the whole business at large—with an as surance'that I shall be able to convince, at least myself, that, however individu als may have been disappointed, the people of the United States have much reason to congratulate themselves on the peaceful efficiency of their constitu tion. And it is high time that vitu peration should stop. The election is over—the principles on which it was sustained and decided, are legitimate subjects for discussion—but the calling of hard names can only produce injury at home, and lessen our respectability abroad. Let ua not wantonly depreciate the character of our great men. Their re putation is national property. Kings may make nobles as fast as they please —a dozen at a batch; but such men as Messrs. Adams, Jackson, Clay, Craw ford and Calhoun, cum multua nliis, are not to be made by Kings! We may approve or disapprove of either of them for the Presidency, or any other parti cular office; but they are an honor to their country, and every good man is bound to defend them so far as he can, consistently with the superior duty which he owes to the republic. Let all such be closely watched—let their con duct be carefully examii ed; but let us not abuse them on slight grounds, or condemn them without decided evi dence of wilful wrong. Their well earned popularity should not be breathed away by the whispers of too ardent par tisans; and it ought always to be pre sent in our minds, that “truth is a vic tory without violence.” If the govern ment is well administered, according ing to the terms of the constitution, it is no matter whether A. 0. or C. is at the head of it; and the people, in gene ral, can feel very little Interest if D. E. or F. have been disappointed or not, as to the offices which they expected to obtain, through the success of their particular favorite. From the Jtmionai Journal. From the papers that came to at lip the .last Western mail, we malft the following: brief extract*, that our rea ders may see how the result of the late Presidential election was received in the extreme Southern and Western sections of the Union: [From the New-Orleans Mer. Advertiser.] The new President.—The flags of the shipping in our harbor, are this day [March 4th,] displayed in honor of the inauguration of John Q. Adams, to the Presidential chair. We hail with joy the commencement of the era of correct principles. [From the St. FrancUville, (Lou.) Asylum.] Thus has terminated a contest the most ardently (though amicably) con ducted of any recorded on the civil an nals of our country, in the election to the chief magistracy of the Republic of the man of the People's choice—the fearless assertor and conservator of; their rights against the encroachments of foreign power—the faithful public servant of half a century of almost un remitting difficulty and toil—the ablest politician of our country, and the first statesman of the age. At a public meeting of the inhabi tants of West Feliciana, (Louisiana,) on the 4th of March, it was “Resolved, That in order to afford a public de monstration of the joy which the peo ple of this section of the country feel at the result of the late Presidential e lection, a dinner be given on the occa sion ” The dinner was given on Satur day, the 12th of March. [Fromthe Mobile, (Alabama) Register.] On Friday, the 4th of March, three salutes were fired, and at 4 P. M. the largest company we have ever known assembled in Mobile, sat down to adin ner at the Washington Exchange* Cof fee-House. [The following are tw o of the regular toasts given at this dinner.] Henry Clay:—The great orator—the independent statesman—the virtuous republican—His country’s good his polar star. John Quincy Adams:—The Presi dent of the United States—we exult— not because he has beaten his oppo nents—but from a sincere conviction that his administration will cherish the true interests and extend the glory of our common country. [From the St. Louis, (Missouri) Republican.] The Fourth of March, 1825.—The triumph of intellect, was celebrated on the 4th of March, at St. Louis, by firing a federal salute. It is a pleasing re flection, that, from the Mississippi to the Atlantic, and from Maine to Lou isiana, there is a strong feeling of ap probation of the conduct and abilities of President Adams. Albany, (N. Y)March 29.—The offi cers of the British Land Arctic Exjtcd^ tiony consisting of Capt. Franklin, com mander; Lieut. Kendall, astronomer* Dr. Richardson, surgeon and naturalist, Lieut. Park, surveyor, and Mr. Drum mond, botanist; passed through ‘his I city during the last week, on their way to York, Upper Canada. The whole party will assemble at Bear Lake, and in the spring of 1826, will descend M’ Kenzie’s river; embark on the polar sea in July of the same year, ami sail westwardly towards Icy Cape. Should they not there meet with Capt. Parry, the Blossom of 28 guns, (which has lately sailed from England to the South seas,) will be found waiting at Behr ing’s Straits, in the event of the expe dition reaching that point It is in tended, on reaching M’Kenzie’s river, that apart) shall proceed Eastward, and explore the line of coast between that and Coppermine river. A de tachment of the same expedition has gone on by way of Hudson’s Bay. [Argue. Raising of the Blockade of Porto Cabello Extract of a letter from our Correspondent, dated Porto Cabello, March 9. The French men of war, that came here to demand the Spanish brig called Roma Libre, and her officers, as pi rates, sailed from this port yesterday for Martinique, she not being delivered up. This vessel is by all accounts the Rambler, formerly of Boston, and it is said that she has committed piracies on American commerce ; time, howe ver, will disclose every thing. N. B.

The new canal of Amsterdam, form ing a communication from the ocean to that city, exceeds in depth and di mensions any similar work in Great Britain. A 44 gun frigate has already made the passage, and there is suffi- : cient capacity for a ship of 80 guns.— i The projected canal from Portsmouth ' is calculated for ships of the line, and if executed, might vie with this canal i of Amsterdam in depth and width, and in length would exceed it in the pro portion of 100 to 50 miles. The frequency , of accidental fires, which catch the .clothes of ladies, and bum them dreadfully, and often to < death, makes it very desirable that some discovery should be made, which should /^nder cotton cloths less inflam- 1 able than they are. The frequent oc currence, too, of destructive fires which sweep away whole squares in cities, to the ruin of hundreds, makes such a discovery of very great importance, if it could be applied, with effect, to wooden toofs. I perceive is Professor Silliman’s excellent work, that some discoveries have been made by the French chemists, which promise to furnish the protection desired. Mr. Gay Lusac announced in the sittings of the Academy of Sciences, 6th Novem ber, 1820, that linen dipped in a solu tion of ammonia, became incombusti ble. And Messrs. Merat, Guillot, apo thecaries at Auxerre, have since shewn that the acidulous phosphate of lime, possesses the same property. In fact, linen, muslin, wood, paper, straw, im pregnated with a solution of this salt, at 30° or 35° of concentration, (that is 126 to 130,) and dried, become abso lutely uninflammable, and consequent ly unfit to communicate fire. They car bonize or char when exposed to a very intense flame, but the carbonization does not extend beyond the focus of heat in which they are plunged. Surely it is worth w hile in this grow ing town, to make the experiment in a large way. The aid aucl direction of the College Professors would not be wanting on such a subject. [South Carolina State Gazette. FIRE. During the sale of the machinery be longing to the Paper Mills of Messrs.

New-York, March 21.—An Irish shil ! lelah frolic took place this morning in the neighborhood of the marble build ings. Several hundreds of the sons of Erin assembled on the occasion, and a regular pitched battle took place, head ed on the one side by‘Paddy up stairs,’ and on the other by ‘ Paddy down stairs.’ Joseph L. Hays and Homan were soon among them; but the combatants were not to be disappointed. Homan was soon levelled, with three large cuts on the head, bestowed by the nervous arm of a son of Erin. Hays escaped almost certain death from a large shillelah, by a movement vulgarly called dodg ing. About ten of the ringleaders we*-c taken into custody, and fully committed. The disturbance, we un derstand, commenced about a raffle, on Monday last. Several skirmishes took place in the intermediate time, and this morning a general battle wras fought. [Jlrnerican. The whole number of deaths in the city of Philadelphia during the year 1824 was 4399—of which 2366 were a dults, and 2033 children.

TO THE SIGHT HOW. IOSD BTSOS.—PIS*. Frome, Somerset, Aov. 21, 1821.— More than two years since, a lovely and beloved wife was taken from me, by lingering disease, after a very short union. She possessed unvarying gen tleness and fortitude, and a piety so re tiring as rarely to disclose itself in words, but so influential, as to produce uniform benevolence of conduct, in the last hour of life, after a farewell look on a lately born and only infant, for whom she had even inexpressible affec tion, her last whispers were; “God’s happiness! God’s happiness!” Since the second anniversary of her disease, I have read some papers which no one had seen during her life, and which contain her most secret thoughts. I am induced to communicate to your Lordship a passage from these papers, which, there is no doubt, refers to your self, as I ha\e more than once heard the writer mention your agility on the rocks of Hastings:— “L>h! my God, 1 take encouragement from the assurance of Thy word, to pray to Thee in behalf of one for whom l have lately been much interested.— May the person to whom 1 allude (and who is now, we fear, as much distin guished for his neglect of Thee, as for the transcendent lalentsThou has be stowed on him) be awakened to a sense of his own danger, and led to seek that peace of mind in a proper sense of re ligion, which he has found this world’s enjoyments unable to procure! Do thou grant that his future example may be productive of far more extensive benefit than his past conduct and writ ings have been of evil; and may the Sun of Righteousness,which, we trust,will, at some future period, arise on him, be bright in proportion to the darkness of those clouds which guilt has raised, and soothing in proportion to the keen ness of that agaony which the punish ment of his vices has inflicted on him! May the hope that the sincerity of my own efforts for the attainment of holi ness, and the approval of my own love to the great author of religion will ren der this prayer, and every other for the welfare of mankind, more efficacious cheer me in the path of duty; but let me not forget, that, while we are per mitted to animate ourselves to exertion by every innocent motive, these are but the lesser streams which may serve to increase the current, but which depriv ed of the grand fountain of good (a deep conviction of inborn sin and firm belief in the efficacy of Christ’s death for the salvation of those who trust in him, and really seek to serve him), would soon dry up, and leave us as bar ren of every virtue as before. “Has/i^gs, July 31,1814.” There is nothing, my lord, in this extract, which, in a literary sense, can I at all interest you, but it may perhaps, appear to you worthy of reflection, 1 how deep and expansive a concent for 1 the happiness of others a Christian ' faith can awaken in the midst of youth < and prosperity. Here is nothing poet- < ical and splendid, ac in the expostulato- j ry homage of M. Delamartine; but t here is the sublime, my lord ; for this t intercession was offered, on your ac- 1 :ount, to the Supreme Source of Hap- < piness. It sprang from a faith more s confirmed than that of the French poet, < and from a charity, which, in combi- 1 aation w’ith faith, showed its power 1 jnimpaired amidst the languors and < jains of approaching dissolution. I : *ill hope that a prayer, which I am t ture was deeply sincere, may not be al- 1 ■vays unavailing. < It would add nothing, my lord, to the < ame with which your genius has sur- » ounded you, for an unknown and ob (cure individual to express his admi- ] •ation of it. I had rather be numbered i vith those who wish and pray, that r wisdom from above,’ and ‘peace,’and « joy,’ may enter such a mind. i answer. a Jr ISO, uec. 8, 1821. Sir—I have received your letter. I leed not say, that the extract which it contains has affected me, because it vould imply a want of all feeling to lave read it with indifference. Though am not quite sure that it was intend* id by the writer for me, yet the date, he place where it was written, with lome other circumstances which you nention, render the allusion probable But, for whomsoever it was meant, I lave read it with all the pleasure which :an arise from so melancholy a topic, say pleasure, because your brief and iimple picture of the life and demeanor >f the excellent person whom I trust hat you will again meet, cannot be contemplated without the admiration lue to her virtues, and her pure and inpretending piety. Her last moments vere particularly striking, and I do not mow that in the course of reading the tory of mankind, and still less in my ibservations upon the existing portion, ever met with any thing so unosten* atiously beautiful. Indisputably, the irm believers in the Gospel have a great idvantage over all others, for this sim >le reason, that, if true, they will have heir reward hereafter, and if there be 10 hereafter, they can be but with the nfidel in his eternal sleep. Having i ad the assistance of an exalted hope through lifef without subsequent di . appointment, since (at the wor t .f them) “out of nothing, nothing c n i rise,” not even sorrow. But a man’s creed does not depend upon h f; who can say, I will believe—this—t t, or the other ? and least of « ;» at ; which he least can comprehend I have, however, observed, that ne \ who have begun % life with extr- ae faith, have in the end greatly narrowed it, as Chillingworth, Clarke (who end ed as an Arian) and some others; while, on the other hand nothing is more common than for the early sceptic to end in a firm belief, like Maupet tuis and Henry Kirke White. But my bu siness is to acknowledge your letter, and not to make a dissertation. I am obliged to you for your good wishes, and more obliged by the extract from the papers of the beloved object whose qualities you have so well described in a few words. I can assure you that all the fame which ever cheated humanity into higher notions of its own impor tance, would never weigh in my mind against the pure and pious interest which a virtuous being may be pleased to take in my welfare. In this point of view, I would not exchange the prayer of the deceased in my behalf, for the united glory of Homer, Caesar, and Na poleon, could such be accumulated up on a living head. Do me the justice to suppose that “Video meliora probo que,” however the ‘Deteriora sequor’ may have been applied to my conduct. I have the honor to be, your obliged and obedient servant, BYRON. BANK TYRANNY. On Wednesday last, John B. Cook was elected Cashier, and Daniel M. Riggs, Teller, of the State Bank of Ala bama. As we are among the number of those who supported the incorporation of this institution, we regret the occur rence of any circumstance calculated to diminish our confidence in its ultimate success. Wt regret that the views of the state should be so miserably thwart ed; that a monied institution should be converted into a political engine for the gratification of petty malice. We need not say we allude to the change in cashier. By the charter of incorporation, the President and Directors are invested with the power of adopting such regu lations as they may think necessary for the well government of the Bank. They elect their own officers, allowing them such a salary as they may think reason able, and specify the time they are to remain in office. In November last, of ficers were elected, the Board having first determined that the cashier should remain in office until April, 1826, and receive g 1500 per annum for his ser vices. Under these regulations, James R. Crawford (late cashier) entered on the duties of his office, having given bond and taken the oath required by law. Here was a dear and express contract between the State Bank and an individual, that the one. for and in consideration of the faithful services of the other, would pay g! 500 per annum, which contract was to remain in force until the time specified above. Yet how has this been fulfilled ? Mr. Craw ford has been ejected from the office, without even a murmur as to his neg ligence or incapacity, but avowedly from political reasons s—because he would not fall down and worship the molten image—because he would not off with his hat, ind shout, Long live King 'Andrew! “Oh shame, where is thy blush!” Can such conduct be sanc tioned by an intelligent community ? Will the republicans of Alabama suffer devotion to the person or principles of any individual to be made the test for office? We hope not. We had fondly thought this was a land of liberty; that however freedom of opinion might be circumscribed in the old world, here an honest difference as to men and mea sures might exist, unawed by the frowns of power. If this be the idle dream of a fabling imagination, let us dream on, for it would be misery to be undeceived. 1 his act should open the eyes of the people. It shows the principles upon which this institution, so fondly che rished by the state is to be administer ed. It proves a devotion to party feel ings, a prostitution of justice, reason, and all those ennobling faculties which :haracterize man and exalt human na ture. If discounts are to be granted in proportion to the applicants* zeal for the holy caute, better had the charter never passed. Against such iniqui tous, slavish doctrine, we enter our so lemn protest. Send it back to the minions and courtiers of Europe, from whence it originated, for it will never suit the meridian of independent Ala bama. The oppression of a private indivi dual seldom enlists the sympathy of the public; but when that individual stands in an important public relation, my attack upon his rights, is an out rage upon the community.—For this reason, we appeal to the representatives of the people, we call upon the people themselves, to frown indignantly upon the perpetrators of this act,* to pro claim in a voice of thunder to these purse-proud lordlings, that there is a tribunal to which they are, and shall se held accountable. We would disclaim any intention of wounding the feelings of Messrs. Cook ind Riggs, by the preceding remarks. Fhey are young men of worth, talents ind integrity, and we are proud to add, >ur friends, [Ala. Slate Gaz. •It is understood that Means.
