That all claims for the renewal of certificates
of the unfubferibed debt of the United States,
of the defcriptioiis , commonly called "Loan
Office Certificates," Or "Final Sestlements,"
[ which may have been accidentally destroyed,
(hall be forever barred and precluded frorjifct

Sect. 2. And be it further enacted That
no claim Ihall be allowed for the renewal of
loan office certificates destroyed before the
fourth day of March, one thousand seven hun

' of the fame was advertised, according to the
resolution of Congress, of the tenth day of
May, one thousand seven hundred and eighty;
or before that time was ftotififcd to the office

Iha'l have been before the presentation of the
of the claiim, as herein alter provided, adver
tired for at least fix weeks fucceflively, in

ExtraS of a Letter from New-Jersey,
dated April 28, 1794.
1 have just returned from my Eastern
Tour where I arranged my business with
my friend. L to our mutual fatiffac
tion, arid tefl night had the pleasure of your
favor of the 27th. " The political ho
rizon has indeed cleared up," and the
storm which seemed to gather so fa ft a
round is happly dispelled. I partake in
the general fatiffaftion which the firm and
temperate conduct of the Executive has
given. With the exception of one or two t
grumblers—l found the appointment of a
special Envoy universally agreeable. It
breathes the cool determination which the
best interests of our country require, and
which is very much in unison with the
temper of the people I have just left.—
The appointment offo eminent a chara&er
as Mr. Jay, whose talents are so well
known and refpeftcd in Europe, is conG
dered as giving energy to the measure,
and will impress the British Cotirt with
the necessity of paying immediate atten
tion toademand so folrtinly made. A sin
cere desire to avoid the horrible mifchrefs
of war, and a determination to insist ort
and enforce every important right, is really
the true line of eondu& for every Govern,
ment. This seems the prevailing disposi
tion where I have been ; and that cool and
manly republicanism which lately I have
met with, forms a fine contrast to that
frothy patriotifrrl which evaporates : in rioife
and declamation and which is too common
among some «f our friends.
lam glad to find that the refohe-mania
begins to abate in Congress. Our mem
bers appear to be as deeply infe&ed with
it as uhy. To b ! e the author of a resolution
has of latebeen avery prevailing ambition,
which has given birth to such a variety of
&c. tliat one is pUzzled to comprehend
them. We hear of Mr. B's motion, Mr.
C's motion, Mr. D's motion, aud (0 on
through half the alphabet: and yet so un
lick'd have these things been, that they
may well be compared to " half formed in
fe&s on the banks of the Nile." This rapid
production and changeable variety of mo
tions, may, however I ftippofe be more
justly ascribed to that warm refeptment,
which every American felt on the news
of the Brftifh spoliations ; but public coun
cils are not the places for resentment, un
tempered by prudence.
