In regard to liast and West Flonds, they were oririnully ceded by France to T.nKlaiidb tli'treatv . fm sceot 1763, who at the surname ceded tupain the lalanduf Mew Orlctkiia and territory west cf the AluiMs-wppI, which we have held ever since without any alteration of boundaries whatever. . " In JTfcO, we conquered from Great Britain all the country east of the Almisslppi, then divided Into uit and West , Florida, winch conquests were confirmed to ns by the definitive treaty of peace of li'tS. It is hero to be oUervcd tlwt Wejt riurtdn. has ever since retained t!it name, snd formed no part f Louisiana, as oij;inlly ceded by France to Spain, but having been conquered by the latter it remained a separate government as hcn under lite dominion of England, and independent of Louisiana, possessing a Governor rip-pointed by lite Crown, who was in a sertain degree, as well as the Governor of lmiwuna, dependant ufl the government ef Hnvaims, ' Itis evident that the treaty of Cession of Louisiana, by Spain to France, and r eonJly by Fiauce to the Uuited States, never did or could in th remotest degree xoutem-plate cr include I'cst Florida, inasmuch as that luitrumtnt makes no mention of Florida by which name alone that country has been known ever since 17d3, a period of 41 years. 'The description of the ceded territory Ri ven in the royal order of the Spanish court ad dressed to the intendant of Louisiana todcliver ui that Drovince to General Victor, is . also clvar and precise, it is therein styled a Retro- eetiton ot Jjouiwana, with the same extent it possessed when ceded by Franco to the Crown of Spain. '" , :; , Aawell micht the American Government claim Ratt Florida, mio under her Construction of the terms of the Cession, because previous to the year 1719 France claimed all the Country East of the Mississippi uuder the ap pellation of Louisiana, and did actually grant an exclusive privilege to the commerce there of, to the famous Croail. . " If any thmr furtliet can be required to render the treaty still more clear and definite on his head, the intentions and meaning of tho originally contacting parlies must surely be deemed conclusive and final. The marquis del Casa Caivo, commissioner on the part of .Spain, and Monsieur L'Aussat on the part ot r raiice, had respectively orders, the one to deliver, and the other to receive Louisiana, withont any reference or allusion whatever to Wett Florida, and the act of delivery wssthus completed con-formally to those instructions from the two couits. . !. - "The inurpreution given by the United States to the treaty of Cession, is therefore e qually extravagant andutenable, and will ne ver, be sanctioned or submitted to by the bpau-Ibh court, altho'.the annihilation of the mon- arcliy should become a Kssible consequence of its rejection ot so degrading a proposal" ' " You may judge from the translation of my friend's letter, of the unjust pretensions of your government, an adherence to which, and that too for a barren and ummportanttract ol country compared with Louisiana, would forever tarnishike honor of your nation, and stamp it with the character of that grasping ambition from which she alone cf all the powers of tho earth has been heretofore exempt." ' . , PlIILADELFHIA, Sept. 8. Cant, Hunt of the Sally and Jenny, from Surrinam, (arrived at the Lazaretto) informs, that no American vessel is allowed toclearcut, at that place, unless the cargo is at least one-fourth molasses. . Sir Charles Green, Gov, General of'. th" colbny, has issued a proclamation laying a tax of 200 (talis, on letters of manuinilion tor all slaves of 14 years old and upwards; and 100 cells, for all under that nge, to put a checK to the prevailing fashion of the people freeing their negroes. The LngHsh government, after the capture of the colony, declared, by proclamation, tho paper currency, issued for the pay of the Ua-tavian troops during the time the Dutch had possession, nu longer a tender for debts. Whether the Dutch government, will ever re deem it, is uncertain, but it falls heavy on the people, who were compelled to receive it while their governor had.the command. , ,. t .' . frvn tfc Journal te Varu of July 5. .
