Disgraceful Outrage!—A gentleman of uti questionable veracity writes to us from Pu laski county, that a few Indians having en camped Iwq or three weeks ago, in a neigh boring county for the purpose of supplying themselves with venison, a parcel of white men went to the camp, (the Indians being absent on a huntingexcursion) and took their blank t-, clothes, saddles, bridles, provi sions and skins, and made a Wbnfire of the whole! The Indians wereentirely peaceable, had done no mischief *and were furnished with recommendations from M'lntosh end Barnett, soliciting for them friendly treat ment: But it waswhe misfortune of these chil dren of ibe forest to meet with savages worse than Indians. Our correspondent is appre hensive some innocent person will suffer for this abominable act, so contrary to hospital ity. justice and humanity, and appropriate ly^emarks, “Had those we call savages com* 4 milted a similar outrage on our unoffending w citizens, who had business in, or were pass ing through the nation, what an uproar and bustle it would make! We should hear of no thing but revenge and restitution.” 4^ Recorder, FOREIGN. FROM TB| IT. Y. AMERICA*. * on a rvr NEW-YORK, AUG, 6, The arrival at Philadelphia of the schoon er Tom from Cadii, which place she left on the 22d of June, was mentioned in our paper of ye«terday, together with the fact that the King and Cortes had arrived at that place from Seville. The National Gazette, received this morning, supplies the following interesting items .of intelligence in detail, which accompanied that event. We give them in the order of time, and with no other ronupent than that they presuppose a des perate state of the constitutional cause, al though they furnish no additional accounts of the progress of the war. * Previous to the departure from Seville, on the 1 Ith June, on the opening of the sit ting SenorGaliano, one of the leading mem bers. ros% and stated that it was no longer the period to talk but to act, and to draw the veil that Hid their real situation—that the Country was in imtninent danger, but that the constitution might-be saved as before, and for*!his purpose it was requisite to put the King and Corjes at once ih a place of secur ity. He proposed (hat the ministers should be forthwith summoned to give an account of the real conjjtioo of things, and decide up on snatching me King from the precipice over which perfidious advisers were impelling him. ^rguelles then moved that the sitting shouldT)e declared permanent until the ob ject of the Cortes was achieved. The minis ters soon entered, sWd one of them related, that as soon as it was seen that the French might invade Andalusia, a council of genet als and other confidential patriots was con vened, who unanimously decided that the tffeans of preventing the march of the French were wanting, and that Cadiz was the only point to which the government and Cortez could be removed. The result was communi cated to the King, who referred it to the council of state, who preferred Algeziras as the place of removal. The minister concluded by mentioning tha* when he left the King, his majesty had not come to a definitive resolu tion. It was than voted by the Cortes that the removal should take place the next dav IV v^auiz, ana that a committee should be immediately formed to wait upon the King and apprize him of their determination. the committee appointed went on their errand and returned in a short lime; when the president reported the following dialogue between himself and the monarch. “Sir, the Lortes being in permanent sitting and hav. mg received information of the aoproach of the enemy, entreat your Majesty to remove with the Cortes to the Island of Cadiz for the security of your sacred person and ihe national representatives.” His Majesty re- - plied that neither bis conscience nor the' love ' nf eleven millions of bis subjects allowed bun to leave Seville. The p,*sident of the committee rejoined, that the political con icience of Ills Majesty was not responsible, because his public conduct was subject to ,hat of bis advisers, and that the members of the committee could make convincing ob legations to him, if what was than remark d.j not suffice. The King only added I have spoken, and retire, . This report being heard by the Cortes, th« y resolved that he case of the moral incom, etency of the ong provided for the I87lh article of the constitution had occurred, and that a pro' i !lonu i'W*y should be created for the pur nose of exercising the executive authority ;nly as regarded the removal of the King md Cortes. A Regency of ihree members, ales, C iscar and Vigodet, was accordingly created and took the oaths of office at once, n the midst of the most lively acclamation* >1 joy irom tiie iloorand the galleries.
