NEW-YORK, March 2Z.
£jxtra£t of a letter from Albany,
" I informed you some time since, that
the Senate has patted a bill for fortifying
New-York, with money out of our Irea
fury, in full confidence that Congrefj
would repay us. After much time i'pent
thereon, the bill was rejected by the As
sembly on the principle, that it was the
duty of the United States, aiid that it was
unconllitutional for us to take up this bu-
" On a fuggeflion that the United
States would fortify our port, but that
their means were inadequate ; Mr. North
next morning brought in a bill for loaning
nioney to the United States, for the pur
pose of fecurirtgand fortifying New-York.
It is probable it will pass in the Alfembly,
and there is good hopes it will succeed ir\
" The bill for providing field artillery,
arms, accoutrements and ammunition, for
the life of the militia of this state, bro't
in some days since, by the fame gentleman
was after much debate, passed yesterday
by the alfembly. and 7 J, 000 dollars ap
propriated for these objects. Mr. Mat
thewr- Clarkfon, James Watson, and Ben
jamin Walker, aie appointed commission
ers for making purchales, disposing, &c.
under the direction of the Governor.—
The artillery, arms, &c. are to be I'epo
fited in the four great diilri£ts, and left
fubjeft to the orders of the commander
in chief, Until further legislative provision
(hall be made.
" This bill is of such confluence to
the state that there is no doubt of its paf
iiug the Senate; perhaps they may not be
sb liberal, and perhaps thiy may try to
put in other commiffionera, not because
those already nominated, art not perfedt
ly good and proper, but because they are
not of the right party,
" The Legislature have an immensity
of business yet before them> and if they
remain here until the public objects only
are gone through, they will not rife till
the middle of April."
We find by accounts from Europe and
the Weft Indies that the present war is as
suming a most ferocious afpeft. The in
veterate hatred that subsists between the
belligerent nations is calling forth every
malignant passion, and barbarism marks
the progress of the contest. The unparal
leled depredations on commerce by the
British nation, has provoked univerlal in
dignation : and the mysterious detention
of neutral vessels in the French ports, and
the violent seizure and sale of their cargoes
at half the firft'eoft, by the comeniffioners,
is a proceeding, not to be accounted for
on any principle of pol'cy. One woulc'j
think that the nations at war are deter
mined, in venting their fury at each other,
to commence pirates and plunder all na
tions. Indeed what is thrir conduit but
universal piracy ! It seems as though they
were treading back the ftepscf civilization
and haltening to the savage state of the
9th and 10th ctnturies, wlien the feawas
covered with roving coifairs from Norway
and the Baltic. .
Lift week failed from this port the (hip
La Ville de l'Orient, of twenty four nine
pounders, and Monday Le Republican, of
eighteen fix pounders. These (hips have on
board upwards of 7000 barrels of flour, and
are to join the fleet in Chcfaptak.
A correspondent informs, (fays the Ame
rican Daily Advertiser) that about 18 days
ago, the cargo of a prize to the Sans Pareil,
was publicly fold in Charleston. The prize
was freighted at New-Providence, by the
Britilh Governor, and bound to Augustine.
Her cargo consisted of paint, blankets, gorg
ets, bracelets, and other ornaments, for In
dians. Addid to these, was a very consider
able quantity of scalping knives, mulkets,
