« Sunday before last, the commodore

head of the Lake, the Oneida in port and

harbour, with a fresh breeze right out the

« An express has this day arrived from

has been made with the Creek Indians, by
which the United States are to receive a-
haut 23 millions of land from the heart of
their country. They bind themselves to
have no connection with any other nation
than the Americans ; to raise the toma-
hawk when requested ; and to bring over
or extirpate, the refractory Indians now at
Pensacola. There has beena large quan-
tity of flour shipped within a few days to
Pensacola, the exportation of which is this
day prohibited by the Governor. General
Jackson is at Mobile—upt aud doing !”

It is said a body of a British officer of dis-

Some conjecture it is that of Com. Hardy.
It wore two gold epaulets, and a star, the

40 ENCUURAGE DESERTION FROM THE
Mi. Fisk of Ver. offered a resolution for
ppointing a commie te enguire nig the
any deserter from the British army, on con
dition of his settling on it. :
Mr. F. supported his resolution in an ans
imnated speech, wherein he shewed that the
policy ofthe British government has been
to induce our citizens, in many cases, to vi-
olate their allegiance. He instanced the
proclamations of Admiral Cochrane, Bris-
hane. &c. He contended that it was the
policy ofall civilized nations,and we would,
be perfectly justified in offering an induce |
ment to desert, a
Mr. Grosvenobyof N.Y. spoke against
the resolution. He Contended that it ‘was
contrary to the custom of all civilized na~
tions, and the principle. was fraught with
the most dreadful effects, as was the same
which encouraged assassination of officers,
Mr. Sharp, of Ken spoke in favor of the
resolution, and shewed that the same princi-
ple was always practised, both, by this and
every other nation at war, when it could be
used with advantage.
Mr. Bradley moved to lay the question
on the table, which was negatived, 62 vo-
ting in the affirmative, and 70 inthe nega-
tive. The vote was then taken on the res.
lution, which was carried, 80 for/ it, 55 a-
gamst it. \
Is not happiness. He that idles away hig
time in sloth and inactivity, may fancy to
himself that he feels an enjoyment in doing
nothing : but what is the sum of his enjoy-
ment? that, merely, of an animal who feels
little more than halfalive. Human nature
is destined for something more noble and
elevated, Itis calculated for action as well
as rest : and whoever expects to be happy
in the more easy circumstances of life;must
also take Lis part in those which fequire ex-

ing become vacant by the uch famented
death ofthe Rev. Isaac Gries, who for

ments of Robert Cooper Grier, son of the
