SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1826.
It is reported that John Steele, Esq. Col lector of the Customs for the Port of Philadel phia has resigned his office. We have heard it hinted as highly probable that Jonathan Roberts, Esq. of Pennsylvania will receive the appointment, unless the Secretary of the Trea sury may feel disposed to take it himself. The National Intelligencer of yesterday says, lha?, f°r l^e °®ce °f Marshal of the District of Maryland, vacated by the death of the old pa triot Col. Bentalou, it is reported, many per sons are proposed as candidates. We have not heard that any nomination to the office has yet been made by the President. The celebrated African traveller, Capt Clap nerton, who is now exploring the interior of that country, has written to his friends that all his little party are dead; but that he intends pushing his travels still farther. On the 22d of February last he was within two days jour ney of the Niger, the course of which to the sea, in the Bight of Benin, he says can be no longer doubtful. He says that he has passed over a range of mountains and through one of the most extensive kingdoms of Africa, the very name of which was unknown to Europeans. A Review of Mr. Bryan’s Poem, by the dis tinguished scholar and able critic, Doctor Hen ry T. Fanner, of Charleston, South Carolina, will be found on the opposite page. We re gret that we have not room for the remarks of the Editor from whose paper the Review is ta ken. They are not more complimentary, than they are sensible and appropriate. In our sketches of the proceedings of Con gress, we have already informed the reader that Mr. Mitchell of Tennessee proposed on Wed nesday last, a new rule in regard to the manner jn which the roll of the States shall hereafter be called by the Speaker. The proposition was, that, in order to preserve the dignity of the Old Thirteen States, and of Tennessee in particular, they should be first called, commenc ing with MAINE. Vermont was to be passed over, until her elder sisters should have been served. But on the next day the proposition was so modified as to compel the Speaker to commence with New Hampshire and go on in “regular progression Southwardly.” including MAINE and Vermont. The ridiculous atti tude in which the vanity of the “Big Warrior** had placed him, gave rise to the fallowing Im promptu by a spectator: LATITUDE AND DEPARTURE. Said Dick “from Baltimore I’ll sail And take a Southern route, I’ll stop at Boston, without fail, And still not put about.” Said Tom, “you fool! why don’t you know That Boston North doth lie; And if a Soutkern course you go, To it you can’t come nigh.” Dick bawl’d; “how dare you call me fool, Thou imp of vile seditions; In Congress, Mitchell wants a rule In reference to petitions, Which lays it down in language clear. As I can well maintain; That sailing South from N*w-IIampshiret You’re bound to touch at MAINE.” We direct the reader’s attention to an excel lent biographical sketch, of the Hon. Samuel D. Ingham, which we have transplanted from a Pittsburgh paper. It will be recollected that Mr. Ingham is theprimum mobile of the Oppo sition, which seems, by the bye, to have a mar vellous ill run of luck, just nowj and it is not strange that so many losses and crosses as thev have experienced since the commence ment of the session of Congress, should, in some measure, discompose iheii natuialh sweet and agreable tempers. In the first place, nothing was found in the president s mes sage which they could venture upon, recol lecting, that Steel, after all, according to the experience of another personage, is somewhat harder than the sharpest tooth. I hen Mr. Smith’s sudden appearance in the senate, when another should have come from South Laroh na, was an alarming indication that a leartul blow had been struck at the home interest, yet there was consolation in the certainty of thejact that Mr. Lyon was elected in Ky., tor though a friend to the administration he was elected by op position votes. There was comfort in that. But alas! Mr. Henry was already in Washington, with his credentials in his pocaet. 1 hese things however, are mere trifles in comparison with the news from Harrisburg, which we published yesterday. Surely never was the expense of a Dinner less profitably incurred than that of the Philadelphia Dinner recent y given to Mr. Ingham; and never was a mild, amiubte, dignified, and gentlemanly speech turned to less account than the one which he de>tvere on that occasion. One cannot but legtet that so much elevation of talent, & such angelic tem per should produce no more effect, brought down to eleven after all!—And then again, the speech of Gov. Schuhze, the "first unopposed candidate of the Democracy of Pennsylvania — tor as such he was toasted at the Dinner;—lor him to speak of the Government ol the Lnited States, and the disposition ot Pennsylvania to wards it, in the manner he did, was loo much to be borne, except by the most patient and tranquil minds. For Governor Shultze to speak with respect and confidence of the course of the General Government, and the Legis lature not only to refuse to elect Mr. Ingham, after all the efforts,by writing, printing, cabafl ing and toasting for two years, but thatTie shou d be able to obtain, at the uttermost, only thirty three votes oui of one hundred und tweinty-eev<a , and that or these thirty ihree./wM/y-ftco shoul I be found to fly off on the first opportunity, is such an indication from Pennsylvania, as we be lieve, the Opposition was not prepared to see Mr. Barnard is known to be a liberal, sensible and discreet man, and will doubtless make a useful member of the Senate. t ‘ , of South Carolina, and Mr Lyon ol kentu ky, when it was thought he was electee. * • Hard is said to he a General.Jackston mar, the Freeman’s Journal or Philadelphia, an ,op position paper, calls him a neutral. what he may, he bears the character of an hon orable and capable man, which the Pennsylva nia Legislature refuse to say of Mr. Ingham. CONGRESS PROCEEDINGS OF YESTERDAY. In the Senate—The resolution proposing and inquiring into the expediency of releasing the Columbian College from its obligation to the Secy, of the Treasury, amounting to 825, 000 was taken up and agreed to. Mr. Holmes submitted a resolution propos ing to diminish the duties on articles imported from beyond the Cape of Good Hope, and on wines, sugars and coffee. The resolution offered by Mr. White, in re lation to the extension of the Circuit System, to the New States was also agreed to:— The Senate then adjourned to Monday. In the House of Representatives.—Mr. ! Livingston of Louisiana, presented the petition of the widow of the late General Wilkinson, asking a pension for herself and children. Mr Webster presented the memorial of certain ci tizens of the United Stales, soliciting the adop tion of further measures for the protection of the woollen manufacturers of the United States. Mr. Van Rensalaer of New York, presented the petition of the President atid Directors of the New York State Bank, for an allowance of in terest on loans to public officers for public uses during the late war with Great Britain. These petitions, with many others, were referred to the appropriate Committees. On motion of Mr Wright ofOhio, the Mes sages of the President of the United Slates of the 13th and 17th of February, 1826, transmit ting information concerning the real estate ac quired by the United States since the 4th of July, 1776, were referred to the Committoe on the Judiciary. Mr. Vance of Ohio, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported a bill to authorise the laying out and opening certain Roads in the Territory of Michigan—And Mr. Vinton, from the Committee on the Public Lands, reported a bill to provide for the relinquishment of cer tain claims to lands sold by the United States in the State of Ohio—Both bills were twice read and committed. The following resolutions, previously sub mitted by Mr. Buchanan, of Pennsylvania, were taken up and agreed to, 1. Resolved) That the President of the United States be requested to furnish this House any information in his possession, which, in his o pinion, may be communicated without detri ment to the public service, concerning the na ture of the stipulations contained in the Treaty of League and Perpetual Friendship, the Con vention respecting Contingents and Compact, which were concluded and signed at Panama, on the 15th July last. 2. Resolved, That the President of the United States be requested to communicate to this House any information in his possession rela tive to the organization, proceedings, and ad journment of the Congress lately held at Pana ma, which, in his opinion, may be communica ted without detriment to the public interest. A resolution which had been laid on the ta ble by Mr. Wood of Ohio, was considered and adopted, directing the Secretary of War to communicate to the House the renorts that have been made by the Commissioner and Su perintendent of the National Road, from the right bank of the Ohio, opposite to Wheeling, through Indiana and Illinois, to Missouri, re specting the survey and location of said road: and such information as he may have in his Department showing the progress that is ma king in the construction of said road, and the cost and manner of its execution; and which has not heretofore been communicated to this House. Mr. Buchanan, agreeably to promise, called up the resolution submitted by Mr. Bartlett, of New-Hampshire, in April last, and yesterday modified and amended, which, after some de bate, was adopted in the following form: Resolved, That the committee of the whole House, be discharged from the further consi deration of the bill to authorise the settlement and payment of the State of Massachusetts for certain services rendered during the late war; that the same, with the claim of Massa chusetts for military services, be referred to the Secretary of War,land that he be instructed to report to this House what classes and what a mount of said claim may be allowed and paid upon the principle and rules which have been applied to the adjustment of claims of the other Slates, for military services during thelate war; and to which the assumed authority of the fio vernor of that State, to control the militia, and to judge of the necessity of ordering them into service, does not apply; and also, if any parts of said claim are disallowed, to state the rea sons for which the same are rejected. On motion of Mr. Cook, of Illinois, the Com mittee on the Public Lands W8S instructed to in quire into the expediency of authorising the se veral Siates that have been admitted into the Union with a condition in the several Acts for their admission, that the land thereafter to be sold by the United States within their. limits respectively, shall not be taxed for five years after such sales, to receive the said condition. On motion of Mr. Drayton, of South Caroli na the Committee on the Judiciary was in structed to inquire into the expediency of so amending the Judiciary system of the United States, as that the benefits resulting from it be equally extended to all the States in the Union. Seveial private bills were read a thud time and passed; and one or two others passed thro’ committees of-the whole. 1 he House then adjourned to Monday. From the New York Commercial Advertiser. FROM BUENOS AYKES. The Augustus, Capt. Geddings, arrived at Salem from Montevideo, brings advices from Buenos Ayres to the 16th of September. as sengersin the Augustus, Capt. Wm. Cope and, and Mr. John J. Me. Neil, his first officer, late of the brig Wetheied, of Boston, lost at Mon tevideo. Captain C. states, that on the night of the 28th Sept, a violent gale was experienced at Montevideo, which lasted about an hour anc a half, during which eight vessels lying in the harbor were driven on shore, and four-caps! zee The Wethered was driven on a reef ol rocKs, cc bilged—had no cargo oil board. N'° °lhCp/' meiican vessel was driven ashore. The C.en teel American, Brazilian sloop of war, and a Danish brig, were among those wrecked—no lives lost. A Brazilian schr. was upset, and seven of her crew drowned. The ship Eagle, of Boston, lost her bowsprit; brig Numa, of Alexandria, also lost her bowsprit; Midas, of Baltimore, considerably damaged in the hull.— The brig Pioneer, of Salem, was not injured.— Her crew had been released from the Brazilian frigate which captured her, and were on board the U. S. sloop of war Boston. It was expect ed the Pioneer would soon be released. The United States sloop of war Boston, Cap tain Hoffman, arrived at Montevideo, from Rio, all well, two days before the A. sailed. Under the dale of Buenos Ayres, Sept. 16, we find the following items of intelligence, such as they are: It appears that a plot of General Frotos Ri vera, to betray his country to the Emperor of Brazil, has been discovered. This second Ar nold, we are sorry to say, has effected his es cape. We regret to announce that the barbarians have lately committed, with impunity, several depredations near Kakel. Nay, it is said that they have killed 130 men of that garrison, wounded the commander, and carried off up wards of 40,000 head of cattle. It is confidently asserted that Admiral Brown has been put on board of the frigate Buenos Ayres, by the private armed boat Son of May, off Bahia Blanca. We have seen a private letter from Monte video, which slates that the Brazilian frigate Piranga ha3 been entirely dismasted in a gale, and that one hundred men were killed by the accident. Arrived yesterday evening, H. B. M. frigate Ranger, Lord Thynne, from Montevideo, whence she sailed on Wednesday. Passengers, Lord Ponsonby, Lady, Secretary (Mr. Scott) and suite. '1*1 t /» •% A • i lie people oi auenos Ayres appear 10 nave little hopes of the success of Lord Ponsonby’s mediation. Intimation had been received from Rio of a positive refusal on the part of the Em peror to listen to any other terms of peace than that of a total relinquishment to him by Buenos Ayres, ot the Eastern Province; than to part with which he has declared he would sooner lose his crown. By a decree dated 24th August,‘•the govern ment declared that no private bank can be esta blished in the Republic without special leave from Congress: and that should any applica lion be made for permission, it would, under present circumstances use its influence to pre vent its bring granted. The British Packet of August 26th says:— A very sharp impressment took place this week, lor the purpose of reinforcing'the army in the Banda Oriental It is said the number requir ed to be collected in eight days was 4,000. A considerable havoc has already been made a mong the lecheros, gaucbos, and we hope, oth ers of a worse charac*er, whose only ostensible means are such as crime and dishonesty can af ford. We are assured, on respectable authori ty, that for the space of 50 leagues around the city, a peon is scarcely to be seen: and numerous Estancias and Chacras are left entirely destitute of effective servants. The constituent Congress of Chili was in stalled on the 4lh of July. On the 6th it was decreed that the Constitution of the Republic should be formed agreeably to the federal sys tem ol Government. On the 7th, the Director transmitted a message to Congres, requesting to be relieved from the charge of the Executive, and in consequence of which, Admiral Blanco was elected President, and Don Augustin Eizo guirre Vice President pro tempore.

WHEREAS I am convinced, by a late disclosure of facts, that my negro man NORRAGE, has been engage J for a considerable time past, as a regular agent in the commission of more highhanded thefts, than 1 was first aware of, to the great loss ol my neighbors and myself; and as I believe the dread of further legal punishment occasioned his elopement on the 10th of November last; I therefore deem it an imperative du ty to awaken the vigilance of the community at large, and particularly of Sheriffs, Constables, and Police Of ficers, that this artful scoundrel may be apprehended, and that he and his concealed co-partners in guilt, may be brought to condign punishment. I do believe, it will appear, upon his apprehension, that others more guilty than himself, have accomplished, by his agency, their dishonest purposes. For fear of inaccuracy in my last advertisement, I will again describe his person. Norrage is about 5 feet 6 inches high, about 24 years old, of a dark complexion, yet not of a deep black co lor; regular features, somewhat bow-legged, yet of a good figure for his height. His dress at the time he disappeared, was a roundabout and pantaloons, of a dark twilled domestic cloth. He had a variety of other clothing, and perhaps, a supply of money, the fruits of his felonious agencies. The marks, however, of thir ty-five stripes, but lately inflicted by order of the civil authority, for an atrocious theft, supposed at the time to he his first and only offence, will still show' on his back if examined. Ilis sober habits and apparent fi delity, induced me to grant him all reasonable indul gence previous to this, lie has been trained from his infancy as a house servant, waiter, market man, car riage driver, &c. He has attended me in Baltimore, \nnapolis, and other parts of Maryland. But he is much better known in the District, and particularly in Alexandria, whither he has for years, repeatedly gone to market, and purchased goods for family use. From this date, if he betaken in the District or within ten miles of its line$ or within any part of Prince George’s County, I will give fifty dollars; if in any oth er part of Maryland or Virginia, one hundred dollars; and if in any other place, State or Country, w hatever, one hundred and fifty dollars, besides all reasonable costs and charges, if secured that I get him again.— Fifty dollars are also offered for the legal conviction of any person attemptingto promote, by forged papers or otherwise, his escape. Against all persons harbor ing or employing said negro, 1 will enforce the full ri gor of the law. II. D. HATTON, Hatton Hill, near Piscataway, State of Maryland. dec 16 New Wine and Liquor Store.
