In another column will be found accounts of .wo Administration meetings, one in Anne A rundel, and the other in Frederick county, Ma ryland. They afford additional evidence that the cause of the “Hero” is hopeless in that State. Letters received fn Norfolk state, that the Small Pox prevails to a considerable extent at ,<t. T’lonuts. To the politeness of a gentleman of this place, we owe the perusal of several late letters from j Buenos Ayres, one of .vhich, dated the 5th of March, says “a few days since, Commodore Brown returned from an expedition up the liner Uruguay, having taken the whole forc-e | which the Brazilians had in that river, amount- | ing to nineteen vessels’—Another speaks of I ;he lute victories of A Bear, the P»uenos Ay re an Commander in Chief; as completely decisive of the contest. And a third, dated also on the 5th , »f March, after confirming the information con tained in tlie others,Vys.—“Nothing is now, heard but the firing, of cannon and beating of | drums commemorative of the glorious victories achieved by Brown and A hear, ’ St ic M canal Hercnue.—The amount of toll received by the collector at Albany, from the commencement of canal navigation, on the twenty first day of aprii, to the first d: y of Jnue, is forty four xhowumdjivt hundred and ticen'ta two dollars.

Baltimore, June 5.—We bad yesterday the pleasure of seeing the modi Is of the contem plated Statue of Washington, to be placed on [he ton of the Monument in this city. All ot them possess their respective merits, but that UPon which the choice of those who were ap pointed to make a selection, has fallen, appear 'd to us to combine the different requisites m a-reader degree than any other. Ii is the pr«v riuctTm of Mr. Causici, and is a most favma Ve specimen of the gettiui of that gentleman, t he model is one half of the sire o» the con rent plated statue, being 7i feet in height; the arrangement of the drapery is such, as to give it the appearance of an antique, and, at the same time, preserve the costume of the period at which Washington lived. '1 he time chosen is *iie moment of his resignation oi his commis sion, and his altitude, as he presents the in strument under which he had held his authori ty, is full of that easy dignity for which the ori ginal was so conspicuous. His head is unco vered, and he is attired in his military dress, a round which a large cloak is thrown so as to fall around his person in easy, flowing drapery. The arrangement at the hack of the nirure is very fine, and is free from the awkward silliness which generally occuis. We learn that it is suppos'd the statue will he finished m eighteen months from the time of its commencement.— Chron.

'1 hese passages were generally in schooners, the most of which were comfortably, nay, some were tastefully, Fitted up, and \^eil provided. 1 ravcllers and mer chants were, however, notunfrcqucntly, obliged to wait ten days for the appearance of a vessel or a fair wind.. In 1827, trip* are made in steam boats in 48 hours, sailing from the two extremities of the I.ake, evury other day. Six slcam boats ply on the lake, aud one on the Niagara river. Besides these facilities, 100 more (or less; schooners, sloops, smacks, are on duty, and some of them can daily be seen travelling the Luke. Black Hock Gazette. Copy of a letter to Mathew Car-y, Esq.

Extract of a letter to the Editor of the Baltimore Pat riot, dated Merrill's, Washington Road, C Saturday evenings 2d June, i Our meeting is just over, one of the most re spectable that ever assembled in the County on a similar occasion. George Howard, Esq. of Col. J E. H was called to the Chau, and S. Brown, jr. appointed Secretary. The,Chairman very handsomely and clearly stated the objects of the meeting, and was followed in a very per ' tinent adiftess, by J. S. Williams, Esq. A pre amble ar.d resolutions were adopted. Delegates ! to the Adams Convention in Baltimore, and Committees were appointed with entire unan imity, and everything done to universal Satis faction. By the'next mail I hope to send you ihe official proceedings for publication. The following arc the Delegates to the Convention: Col. Hood and G. Howard, for the 6»h District .1. G. Proud, hsq. and Col. Charles Dorsey, for j the j»th; John Ijams and Lanncelot Warfield for i the fourth. Delegates for the other districts were elected at another meeting, as heretofore | announced. We have had the most favorable! 1 accounts from all parts of the county, and . wc i calculate upon a great revolution in public sen* I tiimnt in this part of the State. The People make no complaint, and are satisfied with our old, faithful, long iried, public servant, and are willing to see him in the Presidential Chair for a second term. The present Opposition is known to be persecuting in its course—yoked in with the restrictive policy of the South, striving against Internal Improvement iftnl Do mestic Manufactures, has aroused the People to a sense of their duty and they null perform it. Fromtne Baltimore Putrioi. GREAT ADMINISTRATION MEETING IN FREDERICK COUNTY, MD. Extract to the Editor, from a respectable citizen—dated FREDERICK, June 2d, 1827 The friends of the Administration of the Ge neral Government had a meeting at this place to-day in the Court House, agreeably to pub lic notice given in the newspapers published in this citv. Such a meeting I never saw here before as to numbers and respectability—it was | never surpassed In ibis place. Fhe meeting was organized by appointing Dr John Iylrh, l Chairman, Col. Jno. M‘P*ieiison assistant Chairman, Patrick O wings, Esq. of Emmits butg District, Secretary, attd Mr. Ricb’d Coale, of Liberty District, assistant Secretary, when H. R Warfield, Esq. addressed the meeting in one of the most powerful speeches thst I ever heard in my life. Hv was cheered repeatedly by the audience, who appeared to be electrified j bv the facts and arguments disclosed by him. j lie laid bare to the core the unrighteous Oppo sition to the Administration of the general go vernment, and the unheard of persecution of that distinguished patriot and statesman; HEN RY CLAY, and concluded by comparing the opposition to the measures of the administra tion, to a man that wrote his epitaph on his tomb-stone, to guard his friends from error and delusion—“I was well, but I wanted to be bet ter, I took physic and here I am.” John H. MacELFOESH, Esq addressed the meeting also in a very neat and appropriate speech, on the subject, which was received with marked atten-, lion by the meeting,and it appeared to the con viction of every one present that the Opposi tion to the Administration of the General go ment was the most unjustifiable,* wicked and absurd, that ever was heard of on the lace of the earth, and the persecution of Hknkt Clay, was without a patellcl in any country. It was a disgrace to any set of men, and ought to be re sen ted by every patriot in the nation. The meeting then appointed a Committee, to report a Preamble and Resolutions for the consideration of the friends of the administrar tion, with a Committee to meet in Hagerstown, in Washington county, in September next, for the purpose of nominating two electors, to be voted for as electors of President and V ice Pre sident of the United Slates, at the approaching Presidentia* lection; also a Committee of one member for each election disttict in this coirn iy, to meet the General Convention which is to assemble in Baltimore on the 23d day of July next,for the good of the glorious cause through out the state, which I hope will be as well re presented from every section of the state as it will be from this county. When you come to see the names appointed by the meeting, you will be convinced rhal we are in real earnest, as they are composed of men of the first respecta bility in the county, none of your buys and young lawyers, who are playing a desperate game for the purpose of gaining a livelihood, I but they are the substantial bone and sinew, as well as the yeomanry of the county, who are deeply interested in the present happy and ex alted state in which the administration of the ral government has arrived to, and are per-< office with so muen nonoi iu »•* --- advantage to his country. The particulars of this meeting vou will see published more in de ! tail which will be more satisfactory to the | friends of the administration than this hasty a iviuuary j Chronological Compendium of the History of the United States—Mr. Roswell Park, of Hamilton College, has compiled and published a Com pend of the History and Chronology of the United States, in the form of a chart, which may be procured at the bookstore of Mr. W. B. Gilley, Broadway. The plan which he has adopted, is in our opinion admirable for its con venience and comprehensive brevity. So far as he has proceeded in the execution, he has fpven proof of ingenuity and attentive research, n the difficult lask of selecting tbe most im portant events and characters embraced in our History, we think he has generally evinced ski'l and judgment. The work is hereby re commended to the attention of gentlemen of information, and to the patronage of an enlight ened public. Such is the language of a recom mendation signed by the faculty of Hamilton College and jvc concur therein. — m\ From the Philadelphia National Gazette, May 31. Doubts seem to be entertained with regard to the project of a Joint Stock Publishing Com pany, which has begn announced at Boston.— The capital mentioned,—one hundred thousand | dollars,—is deemed too small to work any de cided benefit to American literature. There are, we learn, several bookselling houses in this country tharemploy each, a largrr amount of capital; and the sum to he used by the Compa ny jvouId, probably, be soon absorbed by accu mulation of stock. * Some of the wt iters who have commented on the IJoston project, remark,that the copy-rights of good Amcricau productions would bring a higher price in Europe than the Company could afford to pay; and they ask, what American bookseller would have given one thousand pounds sterling for Bracebridgc Hall, or fifteen hundred for the Talcs of a Traveller. Now, we are informed that Mr Irving might*!iave had here the former sum for Bracebridge Hall, hut he refused to sell his copy-right, and preferred publishing the work himself. He received a bout three thousand dollars for the first edition of his Talcs of a Traveller, and was offered four thousand dollars for the right of printing it for a very short period. Mr Cooper, we also know, received five thousand dollars for the copy-rights of each of se'eral of his novels. From these facts the inference is, that the American booksellers have manifested more liberality or emt'rprise than is generally op posed; ami that a resort to a Joint Stock Com pany, or to the Europt an market, is not so ne cessary as the suggestions which have been made in favor of that plan would imply. It is proper to stale, in addition, that Mr. Irving’s works are sold in England at about one half more than in this country; and those of Mr. Cooper at considerably more than double the American pr;cc. A novel by the author of Wa'criv sells, in England, for a guinea and a half or two guineas, while one by the^author of the Spy is vended here at two dollars. This difference in pr’fce should be taken into consi deration, in the question of. the comparative amounts paid for English and American books. If the \:neriran public would buy American book sofa grave, scientific cast, the copy-rights would bring adequate sums at home. MimaEl\ ’ III Washington, on Tuesday the 5th inst. by the Rev.
