With the stupidity which sees in the late
changes in Europe only cause to rejoice,
and to sncer at our country ; which feels.
not the danger of that arduous struggle, to
which it will call us, which heeds not the
immense British force, detached from the
er blockade of French ports, and the great
jand force at liberty to be employed in the
g¢ontest ; with this perverse and doltish fol-
ly, we disdain to reason. To intelligent
and well-meaning Federalists, who now
own the necessity of urging a common ef-
fort in our country’s cause ; who distinctly
perceive and candidly own, that the « signs
of the times” portend the necessity of a
vigorous and united effort against a pow-
er haughty from aggrandizement, for
the defence of our firesides and “altars, or
gs an alternative their tame surrender ; to
such we cordially tender the right hand of
friendship and fellowship.
Party bickerings must cease, or the coun-
tfy must sink. Let our English editors
go in the. hey-day of their joy.——

fidhading, to aid their merriment.
It must be obvious to all, that litte or
nothing can be said, worth reading, of the
ultimate effect of the political convulsion

That there has arrived at the mouth of the

to the amount of twelve thousand, who are
building houses, and have called upon the

had received an invitation from them, but
refused to go----that all the lower towns
have already gone.

Should the following information provi}
true nothing short of exterminating the
hostile indians will satisfy us, It is thought
by some that arms have not been given to
the ¢ Red Clubs’ as stated, but to the Semi-
noles who have hitherto been neutral, for the
purpose of driving the Patriots out of Eas
Florida. Be it as it may, we should, be on
our guard. Spain isat best but a doubtful
friend, and no one knows how soon she may .
be an open enemy. ;
