Thumbnail for

conceding too much, as such a step was a
virtual acknowledgement ot the Indepen
dence of the Provinces;—and some were
for acknowledging their independence at
once; and this course was proposed by the
member who opened the debate. After
spending the day in the discussion of the
report, the further consideration of it was
postponed to the following day.
By the Fanny, in 36 days from Cadiz,
papers of that place to the $3dl February
were received, which contain Madrid
datesto the 15th of February. Upon ex
amining these papers, we find nothing
thatgoes to confirm the private accounts
received at Palis*
That Spain must, in'tbe end. come to
this point, there is not a question. But
that it will be postponed to as late a day
as possible, there is as little room for doubt
It is a serious affair Tor an old proud na
tion, once formidable in power and influ
ence, now sunk into comparative poverty
and insignificance, to part at a stroke with
such a vast proportion of their dominions,
to the source of their wealth (according to
their judgment,') and the foundation of a
great part of their national pride, dignity,
and importance. We, in this country,
know something ot the sluggishness of the
Spanish government in cases where their
interest stood much less in their way than
in that of their South American relations,
and our experience may help us to form
pretty safe conclusions with regard to a
subject so immensely more important in
their view, and indeed in reality, than any
dispute between the United States and
opairr.
• The English papers contain very little
intelligence from the eastern borders ot
Europe, the tact that hostilities between
"Russia and Turkey had not, at the list ad
vices, taken place, ot itself furnishes
A stroDg argument in iavor of the contin
uance of peace,.or rather of the presump
tion that no positive war will occur. The
declaration ot th$ King of Great Britain,
in bis speech on the opening ot Parliament,
i ©nthe 5th of February, though not couched
in positive terms, furnishes good grounds
to'expect that there will not be a war —
He says, “My endeavors have been di
iecte4* in conjunction with my allies, to
the settlement of the differences that have
unfortunately arisen between the court of
St. Petersburg and the Ottoman Porte; and
1 have reason to entertain hopes that these
differences will be satisfactorily adjusted.*
That the British government* have, from
the beginning.endeavored to prevent open
Iwar between Alexander and the Grand
Seignor, has been well understood- Their
| interference, however, has not proved to
be so fuddenly and decisively efficacious,
as might have been expected. The Rus
sians have much to stimulate their'animos
k ity towards the Turk*; and it a contest be
tween them were left to the parties imme
diately concerned, there could be very
little room to doubt about the restilt. In
addition to resentment, rieyysof territorial
acquisition, commercial privileges, and
national aggrandizement, may naturally
be supposed to have some hold on the
mind.oi the emperor and his counsellors.
2ogive up so favorable an oppoitunily of
annexing some of the fairest Turkish prov
inces to his immense dominions, and the
©ppottumty, apparently within his grasp,
©f opening the passage from the black Sea
to the Mediterranean, merely because
come other powers think proper to enter
tain some jealousy of his gigautic projects,
would probably not sit well on the feel
, ings of the Czar. But, as he has pro
crastinated so long, and proposed so many
ultimatums, and suffered other nations to
*vail themselves of so abundant an oppor
tunity to interfere and throw obstacles in
kis way, we are well satisfied that the dif
ficulties between the two angry monarchs
xviil be ettled without coming to blows,
(land the Russian be left to some future op
portunity to execute his schemes of ambi
tion, as well as his notions oi retributive

Mr. Snowden:
HAVING seen in your paper of the
4th inst. an advertisement signed by
Samuel llattersiey, calculated to injure
me, 1 must take the liberty, through the
same medium of informing the public, that
its contents are altogether false. i did
leave Mr. Haltersley’s employ on or about
the 6th Feb. last, but not clandestinely,
nor until 1 had fully ascertained that 1 had
been bound for two years longer than a
legal apprenticeship, which I tound to be
the c'ise by having my age proved to be 21
years- 1 have never from that time se
creted myself Irom Mr. Hattersley. but
hive passed the streets almost every day,
without molestationpherefore, he could not
in truth say 1 had ran away, and I believe
j his sole object has been to wound my feel
ings. Mr- Hatersly did not do his duty in
w ithholding from me, that education which
my indentures required, but I shall say no
i more on the subject, but seek redress in a
! legal way. JOSEPH ROBEY
