U. S. Ship Job* Adams, /
Thompson's Island, Jan. 30, 1825. 5 Sir:—I have the honor to acknow ledge the receipt of your orders of the ?7th ult. informing me of your recep tion of mine of the 13th of November, relating to what you have been pleased to term “the extraordinary transactions / st Faxardo,” and recalling me from my command, for a full investigation of my conduct in that affair. Agreeably to your orders,I shall leave this place for ‘Washington “without unnecessary delay,” and have taken measures to obtain all the testimony necessary, and such written evidence as I suppose useful, and on my arrival in the United States, shall hold myself ready to justify my conduct in every particular; not only by the laws of na tions and of nature, and by highly ap proved precedent, but, if necessary, by the orders of the Secretary of ttie Navy. To use the emphatic language of Mr.irfmt, “By all the laws of neutral ity and war, as well “as of prudence and humanity,” I was warranted in chastising and intimidating the autho ritics of a place who had not only be came the allies and protectors of out laws aud pirates, but our active ene mies; by the imprisonment and forcible detention of an American officer, while in the performance of his duties.— “There will need” (continues Mr. A dams,) “no citation from printed trea “ ties on international law, to prove “ the correctness of this principle. It “is engraved in adamant on the com H mon sense of mankind. No writer “ upon the laws of nations ever pretend “ ed to contradict it; none of any repu “ tation or authority ever omitted to in* “ sert it.” I am willing sir, to submit my con duct in this affair to the strictest in vestigation, and, if I cannot fully justi fy it, I shall cheerfully submit to the severest puntsment that can be inflict ed. But, if it shall appear that the mo tives which influenced me were found ed in patriotism; that the necessity for my conduct really existed, and that “my vindication is written in every page of the law of nations, as well as the first law of nature, self-defence,” I shall then hope that atonement will be made for this forcible withdrawal, on an al ledged offence, from my command, by restoring me to my former station, and allowing me to retire from it in a man ner more houorable to myself and my country, and less injurious to my feel ings and character. This sir, will be an act of justice, that I hope will not be denied to me. I have the honor to be, with great respect, your obedient servant, D. PORTER. Hon. Sami. L. SorTHvmn, Secretary of the Navy. Stoning ton, (Conn.) March 23.—A most distressing accident has recently occurred in this borough, which has awakened the liveliest sympathies of every feeling heart, in the melancholy death cf Joseph W. son of Captain Benjamin Pendleton, aged 12 years.— The circumstances were as follow : On Thursday morning last, the lit tle bov went into the store of Mr. R. B. Burdick, only a few steps from his father’s house. A bottle of Spirits of fftne, which was standing on the coun ter, suddenly burst, and some of the liquor was spilt on the clothes of the boy, which were of woolen. Mr B. stepped out of the store for a few mi nutes, and Mr. Joseph Cutler, who hap* pened to be in the store at the time, went up stairs, leaving only the boy in the store. 'Mr. Cutler had scarcely reached the top of the stairs, when he heard the boy scream ; he immediate ly returned to the store, and found the bov completely enveloped in flames. As soon as possible, Mr. C. stripped the boy of his clothes, and endeavored to stop the progress of the fire—-which he soon succeeded in accomplishing— though not^ill he was dreadfully burn ed. From his knees to his breast, the little sufferer presented a most shock ing spectacle—the fire having pene trated deeply into his flesh. He was immediately carried home, and every assistance yhich human skill could de \ ise, was rendered; but in vain. Fresh cat skins were applied, and for some time it was thought with good effect; but owing, as was supposed, to his ha ving inhaled the flames into his mouthy and thus inwardly burned, no effoit could stay the hand of death. He lin gered in the most excruciating agony until Sunday night, when he expired. New- Font, March 29.—About half past 2 o’clock this morning, a fire broke out in a b£>ck of frame buildings in Walnut-stjeet, between Water and Cherry-streets, which entirely destroy ed four large tenements, and consider ably injured two others. 1 he buildings were occupied by that unfortunate class of females, who are located near “Cor larr’s Hook;” and it is believed that not less than fifty of those were driven Into the streets, and many of them were this morning stretched on the side walks in the vicinity of their resi dence. The buildings destroyed were of little vajue, and what little furniture they contained was chiefly saved.— Some of the firemen were slightly in jured. A ladder was placed against a three-story builcfiag, nearly at the top of which, one of the firemen was con ducting the pipe towards the fire, when, by a sudden movement, the ladder slipped, and the fireman, letting fall the pipe, caught by the window of the tWd story,iand remained in that situ ation until the ladder was placed un der him. Com. Ado. We have visited the machine of Mr. Conn, a very intelligent and admirable mechanic, who has been some time employed in perfecting a steam gene rator We do not know that we are sufficiently acquainted with mechanics to decide upon its merits; but it cer tainly does appear to us, that it is one of the most safe and useful pieces of machinery we have ever seen, and must we think entirely supercede that now used in our boats. He gives an exhibi tion of it to-morrow at Mr. Gideon Davis's in High-street, and we would invite the attention of the scientific and curious. At the same time will be ex hibited a machine which we think will also prove of vast utility. It is intend ed to raise timber for ship building, or stones for masons. We saw a child 5 years old raise 1000 pounds with great ease- We need no longer wonder how such huge masses were raised in an cient times for buildings This ma chine at once developes the principle. Mr. Hoyt, of Indiana, is the ingenious inventor. [Georgetown Metropolitan. The following letter handed to us for publication, contains interesting facts t— BORING FOR WATER. Charlieshope, March 24, 1825. > near New Brunswick, N. J. 5 Dear Sir The practicability of ob taining water by means of boring is not unknown in Europe, and has been resorted to in this country for salt works; but no w here, excepting in our immediate district, has water been made to flow, spontaneously, above the surface. It is the greatest improve ment in the science of Hydraulicks of our or any age, and will result in a new theory of the origin of certain springs, I mean those springs that do not come to the surface from a higher source.— But I must leave these speculative points, and comply with your wish to have a copy of the calculation that I made, of the cost to a city of supply ing itself with delicious water by the new principle of boring. I have allowed largely for each well as you will discover, when I tell you that my well, which is 253 feet deep, cost only 50a dollars, including per pendicular, horizontal, & lateral pipes, to the length of 230 feet, and made of copper, with tin lining. The water in my bored well has ri sen at least 5 feet above the surface of the ground. It is carried to the kitch en—supplies two trough tables for milk pans—two large cattle troughs, and a hog trough. The water never ceases to flow, and is of the same tem perature throughout the year. I wish that you would give as much publicity to the contents of this letter as you can. The Manhattan Company are boring in New-York. They have not yet ob tained water, but if they persevere they will succeed. Harrisonburg, Va. March 24.—The navigation of the Shenandoah River, is now so far accomplished, as to be in constant use, and with the most perfect safety. Mr. Orbison 5c Wm H. Lew is hav", in the course of a few weeks past, delivered about 1000 barrels of flour, shipped from Port Republic,and its neighborhood, at Georgetown, dis posed of it, and paid over the proceeds to the several owners. In a few days past, they have taken about 400 barrels in, in four boats, and will be ready in the course of a few days to take as much more. Messrs. Orbison 8c Givens have built at Port Republic, a large and con venient warehouse, where they will be ready to receive, (free of any charge for storage) any quantity of flour that may be intended to be sent down the river. The great advantage of this mode of taking away the produce of our farms, over the usual way of wag oning, will be raedily perceived by all who reflect that it would have taken no less than 33 wagons and drivers, and 165 horses, to have taken away 400 barrels of flour at one trip. [ Weekly Register. We understand, says the South Ca rolina State Gazette, that all the canals and locks ou the Saluda are now finish ed and open for use. The navigation from Charleston up Cooper river, thro’ the Santee canal, up the Santee and Congaree rivers, through the Colum bia canal into Broad river, and through the Saluda canal from Broad to Saluda river, and up that riverthrough Drehr’s and Lorick’s canals to Cambridge, is thus open to the trade of the country. The whole distance of this navigation is at least three hundred miles by wa ter, and more than two hundred miles by the nearest land route. It passes five canals, and twenty-eight locks, which overcome a fall of two hundred and seventeen feet. /VYIM M nBflTAL. PRICES OF PRODUCE At Alexandria, April 1st, 1825.
