A meeting of the above committee is requested
at Smith'» Hotel, on Saturday evening, 27tli inst.
at 7 o'clock.
Tite following is an extract from ait eloquent and
pathetic, as well as just appaal of the Messenian
Senate " to the Citizens of the United States."
« We possess in you, friends, fellow -citizens,
and brethren, because you are just, humane, and
generous : just, because free, generous and lib'
ral because'Christians. Your liberty is not prop,
peit on tlie slavery of other nations, nor your
prosperity on their calamities and sufferings. But,
on the contrary, free and prosperous yourselves,
you are desirous that all men should share the
same blessing : that ali should enjoy those rights,
to which all are bv nature equally entitled. It is
von who first proclaimed those rights t it is you
who have been tlie first again to recognize them,
in rendering tlie rank of men to the Africans, de
graded to tlie level of brutes. It is by your ex
ample that Europe lias abolished the shameful
anti cruel trade in human flesh ; from you that
lessons of justice, and learns to re
nounce fier absurd and sanguinary customs.
'This glory, Americans, is yours alone, and raises
you above all the nations which have gained a
name for liberty and laws.
"It is for you citizens of America, t
tltis glory, in aiding us to purge Greece from tlie
barbarians who for four hundred years have pol
luted the soil. It is surely worthy of you to re
pay tlie obligations of tlie civilized nations, and to
banish ignorance and barbarism from tlie country
of freedom and the arts. You will not assuredly
imitate the culpable indifference, or rather the
long ingratitude, of some of the Europeans. No!
the fellow-citizens of Penn, of Washington, and of
Franklin, will not refuse their aid to tite descend
ants of Pocion, of Thrasybulus, of Aratus. and of
Philopœmen."

ALEXANDRIA. D C. Dec. 19.
A Frenchman, (who seems to he a very intel

He is genteely dressed, and, if we were to judge
by his appearance, we would have suspected him
of almost any thing else than the crime with
which he lias been charged. He gave in his name
to the magistrate who committed him to jail, as
identical with one of the greatest men of the pre
sent age in Europe, to whom he says he is close
ly connected by blood ; and produced papers,
which he said are genuine, from Joseph Buona
parte and other auspicious personages, to prove
hjs relationship.
Since writing the foregoing, we have been in
formed by the gentleman who is engaged as coun
sel for the prisoner, that he has no doubt of the
authenticity of the papers.

MADAM RiF.GO.
We have ascertained, thaMhough the means
of Madam Riego and family are very narrow in
deed, they have never bee,.'in a necessitous situa
lion, strictly speaking. They were deeply af-j
fected with tlie mask of sympathy for their mis
fortunes, evinced by the offer of subscriptions. *
Pecuniary want does not it seems add to their
distress; but their disconsolate state will be ea
sily understood by all, who are possessed ofthe t
least feeling. Should the French governmentj
lend itself to the attempt to take away the lifei
ot this unfortunat patriot, no language can do
justice to its cruelty. We take this opportunity
of stating, that this heroic man is not one of those
who have profited by the political convulsions in
this country. The fortunes of himself and family
have suffered a total wreck.— [Mon*. Chuox.
In consequence of the defalcation of the
Receiver General or Lower Canada, to the
amount of 96,000/. the Governor Generali
took upon himself the responsibility ofj^|
grrvntin"; loans upon the military chest to.
supply the necessities of the civil govern-j
ment. In a communication to tlie iegisla-j
ture he states that there Î9 no reason toj
expect that the deficiency will be refund
ed by the British treasury, and that the
province will have to sustain the loss.
Portable Gas.—A late London paper
notices tlie starting'of one of tlie regular
coaches at eight o'clock at night, bril
liantly illuminated with portable oil gas,
amidst the acclamations of a large con
course of people. The experiment, it is said
has succeeded beyond the most sanguine
expectations of the projectors.
