Although I am opposed to any inter* ference of members of one tribe in the concerns of another, yet, in the case of Ridge and V an, they were presented, not as members of the De 4 legation, but as Secretaries. So long as you respect the Indians as an Independent People, with whom you treat, you must indulge to them the privileges of selecting their own agents. To reject the object of* their own choice, would be but an inauspicious commencement to any friendly arrangement of the difficulties, whose removal was the object of the agency.— Not being sufficiently advised of the influence that these men possessed, or exercised over the Creeks, I cannot say whether they have in creased or diminished the obstacles to pacifica lion, or consequently whether it had any influ ence on the public Treasury. I hope no occa sion will again occur like the one complained of. From what I have previously said, you may be assured 1 shall use such means as are in my power to prevent it. I feel particularly obliged to you for the friendly sentiments you express to me person ally, and take pleasure in saying they are cor dially reciprocated on my part. With great respect, vour obedient sen ant, JAMES BARBOUR. Uon. Edw. F. Tatnul. THURSDAY \10»N?ING, MAY 25, 1826. Messrs. Snowden Thornton:—Yielding to the complimentary invitation contained in your pa per of this morning, I authoris^ ou to announce to the citizens of Alexandria, that I will recite my Address for the benefit of the Boston Bard in the First Presbyterian Church, at 5 o’clock on the afternoon of Friday next, the 26th inst. Very respectfully, yours, Set* DANIEL BRYAN. A stranger whose name we could not learn, was yesterday evening seized with a fit while standing on the end of a wharf; find in that helpless condition feil into the river w here the current was strong and the water thirty feet deep. An active, philanthropic, and fearless young gentleman, (Mr. John \Vkst, a merchant of this place) who happened to be near the unfortunate man, immediately sprung ;o his assistance; and at the imminent peril of his own life, succeeded in rescuing a fellow be ing from an untimely death. It is in such acts of disinterested benevolence that true bravery is developed. The National Journal of yesterday furnishes us with an extract of a letter from Gen Lafay ette, to a gentleman in Washington, dated at Paris March 29, 1826. The veteran freely ex presses his opinion in relation to'the propriety of the Panama Mission—an opinion entitled to as much weight as that of any other man on the face of the earth. He has no interests separate and apart from the great cause of rational li berty, tc which he lias devoted a long and e rentful life and a prince!) fortune. He is famil iar with the structure of our Government from its very foundation; knows its strong and its weak parts, and 'has ever been successful in pointing out its true policy Li\ ing as be does in the midst of Despots, he is no si-anger to their schemes of aggrandizement; 8t the world has seen that he is no tyro in the art of counter acting them. He has access to the hearts o' both hemispheres, and seck'.ng to set a boundary to the ambition of the one, and to enlarge the sphere of virtuous action for the other, he fear lessly recommends a measure which our pseudo patriots would fain induce the people of this coun try to view as an ‘entangling alliance.* These desperate alarmists have been foiled, however, in their factious attacks upon the peace of the country; and it will increase the happiness ol Lafayette,'when he learns that the people for whom he bled, have been fairly tried, and found too virtuous to be wheedled out of their liber ties by a few canting demagogues. The following is the General’s letter: «\Ve are anxiously waiting for the arrival of two New York packets: 1 hope they will bring me something fiom you. At all events, I will know what is going on at W ashington, and other parts of the United States: it is a food to my mind, a consolation of my heart, which has become more than ever necessary to me. 1 am happy to think the Panama Mission is now on its way. I believe it of high moment for the welfare of Soulh-America and Mexico, lor the prospects of mankind, and for the dignity of the people of the United States, that they mar preserve and exert the moral influence to which they are so justly entitled.** However we may regret, and sincerely we <10, the self-immolation of Mr. Calhoun upon the alter of a guilty and reckless ambition, we are pleased to see, that in every quarter of his in sulted country, his name is stamped with the infamy it merits. He is justly held responsible for the conduct of his dupes, and will ere long pay the forfeiture of his rashness We could fill our columns with the imprecations of his injured constituents, but one now and then will suffice to show him that justice is not asleep.— The following is from the New-York American ^ of Monday: “The proceedings which will this day be found recorded under the Senate head, are cal culated, we think, to excite the indignation and the regret of every thinking man in the com munity. It will there be seen that Mr. Ran dolph’s unchecked licentiousness drove the Se nator from Massachusetts, Mr. Lloyd—a man *ho is most punctilious in his respectful de portment towards er*ry one—to the alternative I either ot submitting in silence to the grossest insolence, or of making himself personally re sponsible to the malignant madman, who was insulting him and the Senate. And all this while Mr. Calhoun looks calmly on, and per mits these provocations to bloodshed to pass without reprehension—nay, when a member of the Senate,outraged by such proceedings, calls to order, the V’ice President adheres to techni calities; and because Mr.Kingdisdained to write down, what was so obvious and so offensive, the Vice President authorizes Mr. Randolph to continue in his full course of vituperation.— . Truly Mr. Calhoun is heaping on his own head a most fearlul responsibility.” From the Aurora and Franklin Gazette. “We learn from a very respectabje and direct “source, that in the unpleasant debate in the Se nate on Thursday last, in which Mr.Randolph “said that “it was the duty of every Senator to “put the stigma of reprobation on the editor of “the Boston Centinel, and through him on the “Senator who introduced him into the Senate” “he had no allusion to Mr. Lloyd of Mass, but “to Mr. Holmes of Me. He was under the im pression that Maj Russell had been introduced “by Mr. Holmes. Mr.Randolph and Mr. Llovd' “are said to have been on the most friendly “terms; and the former did not intend to make “the very harsh and wanton attack upon the “latter, which the debate; upon its face, would “certainly imply. Mr. Lloyd is a perfect gen tleman in his manners and deportment; and “nothing could have justified an intentional in “suit to him. If Mr Randolph meant his re “mark for the other senator, as he no doubt “did, true magnanimity railed upon him to “rectify the misapprehension into which Mr “Lloyd fell. Mr. Randolph is a brilliant orator, “but a»» imprudent man. We do not question the facts contained in the foregoing apology for Mr. Randolph’s con duct towards Mr. Lloyd; neither do we detiy that Mr. Randolph wasdefirient in magnanimi ty, but we contend that Mr. Lloyd was under no misapprehension. He introduced his friend into the Senate, and Mr. Randolph not only a bused that friend, out declared that it was the duty of every Senator to put the “stigma of re probation'” on the person by whom he was in troduced. Mr. Randolph’s supposing that Mr. Holmes had introduced Maj. Russel, could not change the nature of the insult, and a naked a pology of that character would not, as it ought not, satisfy Mr. Lloyd. Mr. Randolph must retract the assertion, that it was a stigma on the friend of Mr. Russel, to introduce him into the lobby of the Senate, where any gentleman may be invited by a Senator. Mr. Randolph is indeed “an imprudent man,” and we would put the “stigma of reprobation” upon any Senator who would tamely submit to his inflated insolence. From the yew York Daily Ittveniwr. A paeag*aph was published u few clays since in a paper at Washington. which stated, that a iiu oher of members of Congress took a steamboat, and went clown the Potomac for the purnose of visiting Mount Vernon, and that, when they arrived there, they were rude ly pr* vetnr l. by an order of the proprietor of th.it "State, f*om landing, and, ol course, were defeated in the object of their excursion We had no doubt, from the beginning, that a satis factory explanation would be given to this af fair, and therefore we took no notice of it in our paper. The Alexandria Phenix of Thurs day contains that explanation. It seems Judge Washington had given public notice in (he newspapers, thaf he wished persons to refrain from visiting Moun* Vernon upon the SAB BA r.H, and had, moreover, written to the com manders of steamboats to the same purport. A partv of member* of Congress, though inform ed of thi* prohibition by the master of the steamboat which they engaged, still persisted in their plan, probably presuming that Judge Washington would grar.t a dispensation in their fa»or In this, it seems, they were disappointed — The Judge, *ilh an impartiality that does him much credit, refused them permission, and they were under the necessity of returning, without having accomplished their object — However vexed or mortified they might have been, we are surprised that they suffered the Story to be published, as they should have known it must inevitably lead to a disclosuie of the truth, and that would reflect no credit it will probably ind ce members of Congress hereafter, if they are disposed to violate the Sabbath, to select some other plage than Mount Vernon for their purpose. Judge Washington has, under his own sig nature, explained the necessity under which he has been for years past, of prohibiting steam boat parties from making the sacred shades of Mount Vernon a scene of junquetting and in trusive mirth. He has republished the notice, which in 1822 was given in the newspapers, and a copy of a letter he wrote to masters of steam-boats, declaring his intention in relation to visitors at Mount Vernon. Respectable per sons, be their condition in life what it may— will henceforth, as heretoiore, says judge Washington, he received with cheerful atten tion on exery day in the week, except Sunday; but drinking or dancing parties he will not re ccjvc> JSew-York American. From the New■ York American, May 21 The numerous a*rivals at this porf Irom Eu rope, on Saturday and yesterday have brought up the regular files of papers, but in such num bers that we have scarcely had time to glatue at any hut the latest, and their intelligence was anticipated by the Birmingham. ! That difficulties and very serious difficulties ; exist in Russia cannot he doubted. \ll ac counts, public and private, concur on this point. The London Traveller, of the 18th April, re-, ceived at Boston, has the* follow ing patagrclph, and though intrinsically not of much > eight, it serves with many other similar speculations to pro** hew genera! the impression is of ap proaching war:-*-MThe din of warlike prepara tions sounds in the Norih All the accounts to-day wear a hostile aspect. The Czar seems resolved on war, and is arranging his immense strength, naval 8c military, for an assault on the sinking empire of the Ottomans. Admiral Greig, who commands in chief the fleet* of Rus sia, has been ordered to St. Petersburgh to re port the condition of the naval forces, and pre pare for hostilities in the Black Sea. The ar mies of Sachin and Witgenstein in Bessarabia, are said also to be in motion. The Russian hordes are said to be concentrating for the march, and taking up advanced positions in front of the Pruth. The Duke of Wellington is said to have used every argument against this tremendous war, but in vain. No diolo macy could avert-this storm which seems rea dy to burst on the south of Europe in unmiti gated fury.’' The letter we publish from- London of the 13th, is still more explicit and explanatory The late Bishop of Durham', whose death has been announced in our paper, has b<b*n suc ceeded by Di. Van Mildert, the Bishop of Lan daff. The bishoprek of Durham is, we believe, the richest in England and probably in the world. To the representatives then fore of the.late in cumbent, it became, as would appear by the annexed paragragh from the Times, of immense importance that the dying beneficiary should continue to breathe, a few minutes after the midnight hour of the last day of the half year. It is stated that the decease of the late Bish op of Durham occuring after 12 o’clock, that is on the morning of the 25th ult being quarter dav, has given his representatives the emolu ments of one half year, which would not have been the case had he died before 12 the prece mng ni^ni. Extract of a letter from London, dated April 11th. “Matters are going on smoothly here. Even the monied affairs are returning to their accus tomed regularity. Ministers are strong and popular, and not a little elated at the success of their new principles ol free trade. The return of the Duke of Wellington is anxiously expect ed. It is supposed he left Si Petersburg im mediately al'ier thefuneral of Alexander. If so, he is now on his way. His experience and sa gacity will have enabled him to judge of the condition of Russia, which is here thought to be one of great difficulty. I heard from the best authority, that more than fourteen thou sand persons were under arrest,.some of them of the noblest and best families in Russia. No executions have yet taken place. A fact that evinces most strongly the difficulty of the con junctive. This hesitation proves, though it is attempted to be concealed, the extent of the de fection, and the alarm caused by the high char acter of the persons connrcted with it. To par don or to punish might under these circumstan ces he alike fatal Notwithstanding the pad fic disposition of Nicholas, a war seems to b( ihe only remedy for the fire that surround! him. When the Prefarian bands are masters the law they prescribe must be obeyed—with Turkey therefore must war in all probability be made. Constantinople may lie pillaged and (irrece relieved from the oti<.*n»an power, i hi: will give vent to the rebellious spirit whicl seems to have infected all classes—extend th» limits of the empire—and preserve for the pre sent the Imperial throne. The Holy Alliance, and abote all, Bnglafft will not see this without apprehension and jea lousy; but in wb.at way they can avert, or suc cessfully oppose the war, it is not easv to per ceive.
