MONDAY MORNING, FKBRUARY 13, *326. W’g jn error when we slated that the Virginia House of Delegates had agreed to re consider their vote on the Convention Bill. It will be seen by the proceedings, in another part of this paper, that the friends of an oppressive aristocracy are still inexorable. The Winches ter Republican has made a calculation, showing that the counties which voted for the Bill have a population of 305,640, while those that voted against it have only 215,305—leaving a majori ty of90,335 in favor of a Convention. The ‘Harpers’ Ferry Free Press concludes an indig nant article on the subject in the following strong terms:— “The representatives of the petty counties of the east have the sway, and they are determin ed to hold it; and if the people of the large western counties are willing to submit to a ty ranny as detestible in principle, if not in effect^ as that which existed prior to the Revolution, vve can only say they deserve “the proud man’s contumely, the oppressor’s wrong. 1 hey need no longer seek legislative aid, since their mo dest requests barely receive common respect. They must next speak in a voice of thunder, and, in the language of some of the seventy sixers, say, “We have uesolved, and do re solve,no longer to submit to such usurpations.” In reference to the debate on the Panama Resolution, the Editor of the Winchester Re publican, pays a compliment to Mr. Powell, of Virginia, which, as daily and close observers of M r. P’s course, vve cordially assent to. 1 he Editor says, that “though he preferred another to the presidency, yet it accords not with that gentleman’s moral or political principles to be in opposition for opposition’s sake. Deter mined not to anticipate error, but to approve where his judgment does not condemn, he is fearless of party reproaches, and only mindful of the broad interests of his country.” A letter from a respectable gentleman in the interior of Georgia to the Editors of the Sa vannah Republican states, that should Congress annul the Creek Treaty, Governor Troup will immediately call an extra session of the Legis lature i'ur the purpose, the writer thinks, cf raising the means for forcibly occupying the lands in September next. We circulate this report, not because we believe it, but because it seems to be relied on in the quarter whence it emanated. Governor Troup is doubtless a rash man, hut not to the extent that some peo ple suppose. A meeting of the citizens of Winchester, Va. lias been called, for the purpose of taking into consideration, the expediency of establishing a Public Library. The materials for the sup port of such an institution, are known to be ample in that flourishing town; hence, we con clude, that the project wil* succeed. The Louisville Post of the 2" th ult. mentions that the Ohio river was so covered with float ing ice at that date as to prevent the arrival or depailure of boats of any kind. The V earn boat Putnam, from New Orleans for St Louis, with a cat go of merchandize, while m the act of backing oft’from a sand bar, near point Chicot ran upon a snag, which knocked’off some of her planks, and she sunk immediately. It is stated that both boat and cargo will be entirely lost. --- A correspondent of the Franklin Gazette writes from Harrisburg, under date of the 9th inst. that the Panama resolutions adopted by the Senate, had been laid on the table in the House of Representatives, where it was proba ble they would sleep. It is stated in the United States Gazette, that twelve Horses, belonging to the excellent stud, formerly of the Philadelphia Circus, were late ly lost on their passage from Baltimore to Charleston, S. C. Besides other imposing evidence, it is stated in the London Morning Post, of the 24th Dec. that information had been received which leaves no doubt of the fact that the Emperor Alexander was strangled. An order of the government ot St. Domin go, went into operation on the first of January, prohibiting foreign vessels from trading and taking in their cargoes on the coast as hereto fore. The schr Post Boy, of Salem, arrived at N. York on Wednesday last, in ten days from Nassau, M P. The Post Boy and the schr Brilliant, of Philadelphia, were refused admis sion on their arrival at Nassau, but in conse quence of a scarcity of flour, corn, See. which these vessels had on board, a petition from the inhabitants was sent to the Governor, who granted them a special permission to enter and land their cargoes. The Nassau Royal Gazette, of the 25th Jun. confirms the report of the afTair said to have taken place between the British government schooners Speedwell and Lion, and a Spanish ship on the coast of Cuba. A letter has been received in Baltimore, which states, that the Brazilian fleet commenc ed the blockade of Buenos Ayres, on the 6th of November, and prevented all communica tion by water with the city. The brig William, formerly of Baltimore, and now a Buenos Ay rean privateer, had made several attempts to get through the blockading squadron, but failed. Letters of a later date, however, have been re ceived by the Editors of the*New-\ ork Gazette. Accounts from Bueno3 Ayres are to the 18th November, and from Montevideo to the 23d. At Buenos Ayres, although the prohibition law has been repealed, foreign flour cannot be land ed for deposit until the 10th day of July next. The wheat crops bid fair to be very abundant, but fears are entertained that there will be a great scarcity of hands for the harvest, as the government are making soldiers of every body they can get bold of. War is said to be inevi table. Gen. Alvear, the Commander-in-Chiel ot the Banda Oriental Army, arrived at Potosi on the 7th Oct. and Gen. Bolivar on the 5th. Several conferences had taken place, the result of which is represented to have been very sa tisfactory to General Alvear. rl he Brazilian squadron was still at anchor off Gusenada, but notwithstanding their vigilance, the privateer William, alias the Lavtlleja, gave them the slip and got to sea. The markets at Montevideo were dull—no sales for flour. The following article from the Constitution el Whig, and the proceedings in the Virginia Legislature, to which it refers, will be read with a melancholy interest. 1 he venerable Penman of the Declaration of Independence, is ihe subject—reduced by bis liberality, to the necessity of selling the greater part of his es tate, he asks the Legislature of VIRGINIA, to grant the facility of realizing the fair value of his property, and,saving MON i ICLLLO. It cannot bo denied him. Mr. Jefferson.—The reader will discover, (we ere persuaded with more concern than sur prize,) that Mr Jefferson in the extremity of his age, is reduced to the verge of insolvency, and that lie has thrown himself upon the justice of his country to be allowed the privilege ol obtaining a fair value for his estate, hv means of d Lottery. Leaie has been given to bring in a biil for that purpose, and we trust there is little or no doubt, but that this “poor boon” to a man who has done so much ior his country and the world will be granted by the State that has received the richest fruits of his mi ni *rtal labors. Why, indeed, should it not be granted him? When the gratitude* of the State \oltd thousands to Gen. Washington—when the gratitude of the country has elevated the fortunes of La Fayette to a princely standard, and is protecting every citizen from want, who carried a musket in the Revolution, why should it be cold to the claims of Mr. Jefferson; the author of the Declaration of Independence, and the great fountain ol light which has conduct ed the rights of man to general respect, and our political institutions to their present perfec tion? Where isthedungei of the precedent.— The character and services of the petitioner, render it almost impossible, that the precedent can be drawn into*abuse—and happy would it be for the country, if applications founded upon such claims should become frequent 1 Uis cha racter and his services, exclude the operation of the precedent—for a precedent can only be embraced by cases resting on similar circum stances. Can it be therefore pretended, that if Mr. Jefferson is authorised to dispose ol his estate by Lottery, it will bind future Legisla tures to extend an indiscriminate indulgence to all desiring a similar favor? As it relates to Air. jemwson, me prupuscu Lottery is stripped of one of the objectionable features of Lotteries. He does not desire to receive by it, nioie than the value ot his estate, estimated* by disinterested gentlemen. He has no view of speculation—and wishes only to re lieve himself of debt, and to preserve a small share of his estate, that he may have a home fur the short remainder of his life. Such is our faith in him, that we,.^o not believe he would ask, what his country ought not to grant. Well understood as it is, that nothing could in duce him to receive a pecuniary compensation for his inestimable services, that he abbots the very sound of “civil prnsiou apparent as it is, that this is the only favor that he has ever ask ed, or ever will ask of his country, we trust that it will be granted him. From the Legislature of Maryland, we learn that, on Tuesday last, the whole subject of In ternal Improvement was discussed, on the motion to refer the resolution on the subject to the 4th of June next The discussion ended in the postponement of the further consideration of the subject for two weeks The friends and opponents of Internal Improvements are said to be nearly equally divided, and much warmth is said ‘o he expected to be displayed in the dis cussion. Wherefore waunth ? We a^e at a loss to conceive. [Aa/. Int. OFFICIAL.
