MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 9, 1826.
We unintentionally omitted,on Friday last, to give credit to the National Intelligencer for the accurately reported speech of Mr. W ebster on the pending Judiciary Bill. That of Mr. Mer cer, on the same subject, which we publish to day, is from the National Journal. Although we drily report for ourselves such ; parts of the proceedings of Congress as we deem interesting to our circle of readers, there by giving them the earliest intelligence of evc v thing important, yet we find that for set speed**, we can, by great exertion, avail our selves of the experience and labor ot our AV ash ington brethren, with only one day’s delay to „ur patrons. This course we shall continue to pursue. A friend has kindly informed us, that on the ;thof Dec. ultimo, the new and rising city of j Tallahassee, the metropolis of the three Flo das, was first visited by Prince Aciuli.es U . rat, whose seat is distant fifteen miles. The priuce is the son of the sister of Napoleon tio x.vriRir, and his father was the late King of Naples. He is a man of remarkable intelii „r»cc> aml is excelled by few in enterprise and industry, lie accommodates himself to Ame rican manners, and passes by the simple title of Colonel Mi rvt. He has taken the requisite pi eparatory measures to become a citizen of the United States. He speaks fluently most of the languages ol l'.urope, besides being an ele gant classical scholar, as well as a profound mathematician; and has gained an extraordina ry degree of popularity in the couutry of his residence. When Gen. Lafayette was about to leave the Frigate Brandywine, on her arrival at Havre, the Midshipmen attached to that vessel, made him a filial, feeling and appropriate Address cn the occasion; to which the good old veteran made the following verbal reply:—“My dear friends: 1 am unable to express my feelings to wards you. Before I had ihe pleasure of your acquaintance, I considered it an honor to belong to the United States’ Navy—since then my knowledge of you as individuals has added to my admiration of the chivalry of your profes- ; sio^nd rendered sanguine my expectations ol its iBfrhe achievements. Your country has reason to be proud of you. I part with you with regret—but should your duties or inclina tions being you again to France, remen.be r that La Grange is the home of every American.— Farewell.” The Baltimore American of Saturday, says, that a l°tter had been received in that city, from a Senator of the United States, stating that the British Minister at Washington, had been spoken to on the subject of the stop intended to be put to our intercourse with the North Ame rican colonies, by the Comptroller General of the customs at Halifax. The Minister disap proves of it, and has written to the Governor requesting him to obtain a suspension until the opinion of the British Government can be as certained. The Delaware Gazette of Friday, gives a de plorable account of the detestable Lobby Sys tem in that State. “Our letters from Dover,” savs the editor,“inform us that an abominable svstera of management and intrigue has been already commenced. The lobby is in full ope ration, and caucuses have been held, and mea sures decided upon, by persons entirely uncon nected with the Legislature. Iu accordance with the decisions c5*a motly group who have thus undertaken, gratuitously, to arrange mea sures, various expresses have been despatched, and the business of the Legislature delayed, for the express purpose of confirming their man dates! For this reason it is, that we are prevent ed laying the message of the Governor before our readers in the present number of the Ga zette/’ It may be well to remark, that the late elec tion for members of the Legislature terminated unfavorable to the wishes of the Editor of the Gazette.—There may be something in that. Ohio <§* Chesapeake Canal.—This bill was yes terday again under consideration, when a mo tion was made by Mr. Lehman to postpone the further consideration until the 10th iust. The reasons urged were, that the house would then be full, and the resolution which proposes to incorporate with the bill a provision for the commencement of a Pennsylvania canal, might first be acted on. The motiou was agreed to, and the biW is postponed until the 10th instant. Harrisburgh Intel. 3d ins/. The Grand Jury of Richmond county, in Georgia, have wisely presented as a great and growing evil, the fraudulent parking of Cottony which has long existed, to the injury of that state. To obviate so shameful a practice, they suggest the passage of an act by the Legisla ture, compelling every person owning a gin, to record the same in the county court, and to give security for the faithful packing of all Cotton at said gin; and that the owner thereof be further obliged to brand the bales with his name and thjt of the county; previously to their being sent to the market. Fire at Baltimore.—The Turpentine Distille ry of Messrs. Stewart 8c Bolton, was destroyed by fire onjFriday night last. Owing te the early hour of the night, and the stillness of the air, no other damage was done. Fire at Petersburg} Fa.—One of the most ex tensive and calamitous Fires that has befallen that devoted place since the desolating scene of 1815, occurred on Wednesday night about 7 o’ clock. It originated in aware room on Old street, and in a few minutes no less than six houses were wrapped in flames. The wind was high, and such was the rapid progress of the destructiue element, that the spectacle is represented awful beyond description. The principle destruction was in Old and High Jtreets, consisting of Meade’s extensive tavern and stables, Stores, Warehouses, Workshops and Dwellings, to the amount ol forty—the bet ter kind of which was, for the most part, in c.. -ol. No estimate has yet been made of the ,s in merchandise, furniture, produce, See.; .he amount, however, is great. Neither of the printing establishments were burnt; but that of the Republican was thrown into such confu sion, as to suspend its operations for a short time. We regret to find the origin of the cala mity is considered incendious. No intimation is given that foreign aid will be necessary, and we hope it will not.be; should such be the unfortunate condition of our re spected neighbors,we doubt not that Alexandria will readily contribute. The election of a member of Congress from Virginia, in the place of Mr. Randolph, is or dered to be held ou the 2Tst instant. The Election for Governor of Missouri, took place caarly in December. By the last accounts, ull the returns had not been received; but no doubt was entertained of the success of Gen Miller. The canvass was unusually animated. The Legislature of Massachusetts conven ed at the State House, iu Boston, on the 5th in st. The steamboat from England, bound to Cal cutta, an iveef at the Cape of Good Hope on the 28th October, in fifty-six days from London, and would be detained about a fortuight to ob tain fuel. Mr. Goodacre, from England, who, some months past, has been successfully lectur iug on astronomy in the eastern states, arriv ed at Louisville, Kentucky, about the 20th ult. The Bank of the United States has declared a dividend of 24 per cent, for the last 6 months. The following Insurance Companies of New York, have also divided large profits for the time, viz:—National Insurance Company, 6 per cent. Ocean, 6; N. \ork, 5; Eagle hire, 4$; Dutchess county, 4; Utica, 4. Man Worship —The Montreal Herald gives a hint, which the Editor hopes will have the desired effect, that when the National Anthem of “God save the King,” shall hereafter be played in the Theatre at that place, the audience should stand up *with hats off\ during the per formancc, as is done in Great Britain and Ire land. The loyal editor seems shocked at the present practice of sitting on such an important occasion with hats on. ^ hat a sentiment for an American'. The Legislature of Georgia, adjourned sine die, on the 23d ult. after having passed 140 acts. The Resolutions laid before the House at an early period of the session, by Gen. Har den, & others afterwards byMr. Polhill,relative to the powers of the General Government; as well as Mr. Lumkin’s, Mr. Fort’s and Mr. Foster’s several resolutions in regard to the next presidential election were all rejected, or rather, laid upon the table, and not again called up. The report made by the Committee, to whom the subject had been referred, supporting the grounds taken by the Governor in defence of the Creek Treaty, and entering the protest of the Legislature against its amendment, was adopt ed by a large majority. The Baltimore Patriot states, though we have net seen it in the Geor gia papers, that Governor Troup has put his veto upon the bill laying the State off in Con gressional Districts. We have received Governor Clinton's mes sage to the Legislature of New York and shall make some extracts from it as soon as space will permit us. Mr. Samuel Young was Elected Speaker of the House of Assem bly, Mr. Edward Livingston, Clerk, and Mr. Chester Griswold, Sergeant at Arms; all up on the first ballot. They were nominated by a CAUCUS on the evening previous. The trial of Mr. Clerke, the Editor of the Globe and Emerald, for a libel on Mr. Stone, the Editor of the Commercial Advertiser, rela tive to dishonorable lobby operations took place at New-York on Thursday last, when a verdict of guilty was rendered by the jury w stanter against Clerke. FNoah,the Editor of the New-York Advocate was Counsel for Clerke. It must be gratifying to every friend of po litical and religious liberty, to learn that Ma ryland has at last consented to put the Jews on a footing with her other citizens. A law for this purpose has just passed both Houses of the Legislature, and been approved by the Go vernor. PASSAGE OF THE JEW BILL. Extract of a letter to the editors of the American, dated “Annapolis, Jan. 6, 1826. The bill for the relief of the Jews in Mary land is now the law of the land. It passed the Senate on Saturday, and the House this day, 44 to 22.” Extract of another letter of same date. “The Jew bill has been confirmed to-dav.— The vote in the house was 25 to 2. At last the State has partially wiped away the religious test which has so long been her disgrace. The legislature have deputed this morning Messrs Chambers of the Senate, and Golds borough and Lee of the House to proceed to the legislatures of Pennsylvania, New-Jersey and Delaware, to bringlabout some remedy for the ailedged piotcction which runaway slaves meet with in those states. The deputation it is said will proceed on their embassy immedi ately!” Extract of another letter of same date. “Mr. Herbert from the Internal Improve ment Convention Committee, this day handed in their memorial and accompanying docu ments, which were ordered to be printed.” Extract of a letter to a commercial house in this city from a respectable source, dated Port-au-Prince., Oct. 5. “In a recent conversation with General lngi nac, on the subject of differential duties, he as sured me that the advantages would only be extended to French Goods and manulaciurcs imported in French bottoms, coining direct from France. On the subject of exports he could give me no positive assurance, but it is my opinion we will be able to export in F rench bottoms with the privilege. As the assurances of the General were merely verbal, and that be declined making them in writing, stating that he could not do so with propriety, as the nego tiations were still pending, I cannot give them the publicity necessary, for preventing our fel low citizens from falling into the snare, and shipping ir. French bottoms. \ou will there fore oblige me and render the public a service by having the circumstance mentioned in one of your public papers.” [Baltimore Chron. MR. AND MRS. JUDSON. In a Calcutta paper of July 8, there is a dep osition of a Seapoy, who was taken prisoner by the Burmese, and carried to Ava, in which it is said, “Mrs. Judson,thc American Missionary’s wife, was permitted to remain at Ava, in her dwelling house, unmolested—but her husband was in prison in irons. She was allowed to vis it him every two or three days, and daily to send him food.” Boston Statesman. BUENOS AYRES. The Congress of these Provinces has declar ed the Banda Oriental defacto, reincorporated with them, recognised its authorities, admit ted its deputies, and enjoined the defence ol its territory on the National Executive. This resolution, equal to a declaration of War, has had a sudden effect on the prices of wines, Su gars, rice,and some other articles of consump i tion, and such are, therefore, this day, 25 per j cent, above quotations. ©ME? w«wB*_ PoyI ot AYexantYrla._ ARRIVED. 7„„ 8.—Schr.
