Leoisiature of Virginia.
A motion was made that the house do come to
the following refolntion :
Rcfohrrd, That the motives which influenced the
President of the United States (o ratify the treity
lately negotiated with Great Britain meet the en
tire approbation of this house and that the Presi
dent of the United States for his great vt-if
. dom and integrity merits and pofiefies the unlimit
ed confidence of his country.
And said resolution being again read, and a moti
on made to amend the fame by linking out from
the word resolved to the end and infecting, in lieu
thereof the following words.
That he Hor.fe do entertain the highefl sense
of the integrityard patriotism of the President of
the United States and that while they approve the
vote of the Senators of this state inthe Congress of
the United States relative to the treaty with Great
Britain they in no wife mean to censure the motives
which influedeed him ia liis-condnfl thereupon.
It passed in the affirmative.

PARIS, September 26.
The decrees for teele&ing two thirds of the Con
vention, were yeflerday proclaimed in the fteeets
of Paris, as being adapted by the majority of the
people. The utmost pomp and ceremony attend
ed the event : but many of the Primary Affcm- «
blies, exprefled their indignation on the occasion,
and fume of them considered the proclamation as 1
a calumny upon the people, as contrary to truth, 1
and, consequently, as not binding on any one. j
In fadt, it is a moll incredible lnflauce of pre- I
uimption, to impose the will of 160,000 (t!u? num
ber of voters who have accepted the decrees) per- i
sons, as a law of 25,000,000 of men. The Parti- f
fans of the Convention, thus, donot exceed 160,000, <
and amongthefe mufl be reckoned the terroritls who v
have been lately fst at liberty. c
