"THURSDAY, JANUARY 8. C WKth ef December w published aa extract of a letter front. Washington, impeaching tha ftdelity of the National InteUigeocer a to iu reporting department, aod expressing Mir great regret at being culled upon to mention clrcnauteoce e derogatory to the character of thai paper. Ywterday wo received a long let tar froai Um oditora, dmrtBg th chare and monstraOng against what they call to wanton and ' vnjut aa attack npoa their reputation and prop erty. To convince - us that the imputation t an founded, tbey inclose two letters from gentlemen of die Ant standing in the rlotuo, which place the matter in a different point of view. But a we ' are not permitted to publish their letter or .those of the editor, w give a abort extract from - each of the former, ahewinf predtely how far they art wOlingto go in atiolviog Mown. Galea A Beaton from eo serious a charge. Tbe debate on both side hare been generally given by you much more at large than by . etbT editors, and they have been given with ai mw&vnpmrttaiiigin your paper a in any other ltUTeeea.n . . . - Tha other tap i ;; ,' ' :' Yon have discharged the ' duties of a steoo - ' grapher of the ho ate of. representative! with greet diligence, attentioa and ability ; oot meaning to ray that occasional error and omissions bare aoVoccorved io the performance of a task . to difficult and arduous.

W conclude by expressing oar regret that tha publication was made . Having published a letter from Ealtimore on the iubject of the affair of tha vice - president, - we have tince become accidentally poweued of a piece of information, which we think ought in Candor to be mentioned also. We are enured . in a manner that leave no doubt of tha correct - ' mm of the fact, that the personal friend of Ihi gentleman have lately stepped forward in a very handsome manner, and furnished him with loan that have put him entirely at ease in his circum ' itance ; that be i making preparation for going onto Washington); and that the degrading tep of the vice - president of the United State tolicit - ' log the office of collector of the port of New - York, or accepting it if offered is, if ever it was entertained, entirely, abandoned. Ounterfcit Bank Bills. Th public are cautioned against bank bill of the following description, a large quantities have been printed off, and found on a person now in custody : viz.

Embury, cash'r. and Jnti of the Bank of Columbia. They all appear, at first light, tolerably wall executed, but on close in paction the forgery will be apparent, the work in general being coarser and inferior to the ge - . twine bill the border and vignette in particu sart are ill - executed, and the signatures of both the cashier of the Exchange Bank, of the cashier f of tha Manhattan Bank, and of both cashier and . president of the Mechanic' Bank are bad imi - ' tation. Ooa circunutanc ought lobe publick !y mentioned j the person ou whom the bill were found, but whose name i withheld at present, was two or three year since one of onr city watch, and only a week since made an application to be again appointed.

We here re - publiih from tha London Courier some further particular of the chip wreck of the William er Mary, mentioned in our paper last Saturday, Barbarity to female to atrocious w never before read of. At 8 o'clock the Teasel tailed from Pill ; the captain appeared perfectly sober. About 10 the captain went below, told the passengers all wat right, and recommended them to retire to rest ; be then lay down in hi clothe on deck, leaving hi mate, John Outerbridge, at the helm. Somewhat near 11, Hayes, who was oo deck, felt a hock, as if the vessel had grounded ; and the captain, a if awaking from sleep, cried out 'Halloo! what i the matter?" the passengers, at the tame moment, were seen running in all direction, and crowded round the captain in a state of the greatest alarm ; and al though he endeavored to pacify them, be could not halo ma nifesting hi eease of their imminent danger. Discovering that there were three feet of water already in the pomp, the crew, consisting of the steward and three sailor, deserted their stations. and flew to the boat ; and it it reported, that not being able to pretail on three females, who had crept into it, to quit their situation, they lowered tne item so far a to admit water, and thereby threaten - immediate destruction. Upon this, the ladies, with the assistance of these brutes, scrambled on board the packet, when the inhuman wretches took possession of the boat, and cut the ropes. . John Hayes, during this time, took pos - union of the helm, and being assisted by tome of the passengers in managing the sails, breurtit h lainom water, learin weooai more wan bail mile astern. This was scarcely tflected, when the vessel went suddenly w whuiu siiijccutu, Dy passing band over hand, in getting up one ol the ropes to the topmast, to Which about 14 others had mi. lected.

The following resolution, submitted by Mr, Burrill, on Wednesday, was taken up for con sideration : . Resolved, That the committee to whom wa referred the petition of the committe of the yearly meeting of the Society of Friends at Baltimore, be instructed to enquire into the expediency of co amending the law of the U - nited States on the subject of the African slave trade, as more effectually to prevent said trade from being carried on by citizens of the United State under foreign flags, and also into the expediency of the United States taking measure in concert with other nations for the entire abolition of said trade. The resolution bcinir read : Mr. Troup rose to object to the last clause of the resolution, which contemplated a concert with foreign nations. He thought this a most extraordinary proposition, and asserted that, according to bis apprehension, no mess ure could be adopted more replete with dan rer to the welfare: to the very existence of this country, than a formal coalition', for any purpose, with any foreign nation whatever. It was a policy, a resort to which ought always to be resisted, and he hoped would be resulted with a firmnes not to be overcome. The object of the first part of the proposition, for making our laws against the iave trade more perfect and more effectual, Mr. Troup approved, and wa witlintr to co - operate in it He wa ready to go a far as any one, in enforcing, in our own jurisdiction, the abolition of the African slave trade. Wiilim our land line, or water line, even on the high teas, he was willing to enforce our own laws on the subject i but to direct the President to enter into any compact or concert for this object with any nation or individuals, wa a step he never would content to He could not teparate from foreign alliances the idea of foreign policies and foreien wars and the proposed measure he should view as the commencement of a system of foreign connection tending to foreign alliance, to which Mr. T. expressed great, repugnance. Unless, therefore, the propositions embraced by the resolution were separated he should be obliged to vote against it Mr. Uurrill was pleated, he said; to find that Air. Troup had no objection to the main object the resolution had in view, of putting an entire top to the African slave iraoe on thi point, he believed there wa no diversity of oDinion throughout tha country. Mr. B. regretted, however, that such a view had been taken of the concert with other nation propo - ed to effect the object; because it was only by such concert and co - operation mat tne slave trade could be abolished. Mr. B. en tirely agreed as to the impolicy of foreign alliances i and if the eeneral obiection to them applied to the proposition he had submitted, he admitted u would be a sound and sudsuii. tial one but he could not view the proposed concert in thi light, nor could he conceive that any such disastrous consequence would follow it as had been anticipated by the gentleman from Georgia j that apprehen - sion, he thought, waa altogether groundless. Nor wa the principle of ihe proposed concert, Mr. u. aid a novelty in this country, uy re ferring to the treaty of Ghent, it would be found that our minister bad either made or received overture on thi very ubject, and a provision was m consequence inserted in the treaty. The concert had been considered a indispensable to bring about the entire abolition of the slave trade ; and Mr. B. said it had been found impossible to put an entire stop to itliout a co - operation among tne nations prohibiting it for, no matter how many nations prolubit the trade, if one or two are al - .B - . .1 . - I ! ..'11 .. loweu to carry it on, tne evil wiu iuii cjusi. Mr. Troup replied, that the propiscd concert for abolishing a particular traffic on the high seas pre - supposed resists nee, and resistance was to be repressed by the united means of the nations entering into the compact This, certainly, .Mr, T. said, was one step towards, and miirht be the prelude to alliance with foreign power. Besides, he said thi was not one of those traffic proscribed by the law ot nations, though prohibited by our sUtutes t and' he doubled the expediency ol tucu acomomauon to put down a trade which was thus permit ted. If motives of humanity are urged in favor of this measure, let us said Mr. T. begin at the fountain bead. If the policy of Uii country is to be changed t if the weU - remem - bered parting advice of a wise and good man is to be departed from, and we are to com mence a system of M entangling alliances, let us look for some objects worthy of the change let us aim at the abolition of impressment, and free our seamen from that odious tyranny ; or let us enter into the cause of South American emancipation let u not enter, fir the first time, upon a system so fraught with danger, without some such great and justifiable mo tive i without the certainty of accomplishing some object of an importance corresponding with the sacrihce w are to make. Mr. King, iu tha outset of bis remarks, adverted to the delicacy of thi qncstioo ; aad taid that it in approaching it, be could discover any danger of the present proposition' leading to that kind of connection which wa apprehended by Jtfr. Troup, noon would mora earnestly deprecate it than hinvelf. B ut, be said, it was the boast of this natioa, that it bad the reputation o! having beta tha first to begin the ahoiitioo of the African slave trade :'th constitutional provision having reference to this subject, certainly looked forward to a time when thi country would be ready to use it beat endeavours to put down this iniquitous traffic ; and, be might add, there wa no provision m the oonstiluboo which had been looked te with more general approbation than that see. The example of thi country bad ex - cried the emulation of other nations; and all of U baring any couaectioa with thi trade, ex - cert two, hal come 'into the measure for iU a - - " a f.elii4ftat hnHlion. IHOK rWO nau laasa umm consideration ; and so long a their tiecsuon w nn!, ,ne reguiauoo. . would be intmcitni i ma sums """" - tiK i .Um wnnld never be affected, until all united to suppress it It seems to me, said Mr. K. that w ar bound oy our own pnncipies, ..,1 tha nmmise we held out to go a little fur ther, if w can, to give eoect to . wuai we ' . a a - St. ... - !. undertaken. 11 wa not important, ne uiuugui, in tnlnr ao. whether tha necessary measure nrad with ns. or were entered into at the invitation of other. So long, however, he aaid, a Spain and Portugal permitted thi trade, anu to long at any of our own people, to their dis - mf a. continued to purtua it, under thote flag, it was necessary to the honor and the interest of thi country to concur to any proper measures for iU uppresioo. He could not perceive, he taid, hew such ft measure as this motion looked m. could lead to anv such entangling connection a had been apprehended. What wa proposed wa an honest and moral concert to put an enu in a traffic which is an abomiaatioa on the earth. Ha had no idea of it authorising the slightest interference with the internal ffain of other nations, or of allowing them to interfere in ours ; it could in hi opinion only redound still more to the honor of our country. o arrangement oi tha nature sureested. he thourht might be en tared into without anv sTeat tocoorenience, and without anv encouragement to that kind of eon uection of interests which had been very justly deprecated : and it was, he aaid, if practicable, a measure which was demanded by a regard for th moral of the country which onr religion itself called for. Nor did he think, Mr. K. said, that it was a sound objection, though there wa some force in it, that tha proposition originated in thi branch of the government, and not with the executive. Any branch of the government, ha thourht might express an opinion oo any na tional Question : the construction of legislative powers wa not so strict as to forbid it ; in proof of which he adverted to the practice in uigianu, whence. Mr. K. said, wa took many of our po litical ideas, where the parliament often express ed its opinion on subject of public interest, ic Slc. Mr. Burrill made some additional remarks, in replv to Mr. Troup, and said, that, if all na tions agreed in prohibiting tha traffic, it might not be necessary to enter into any compact oo th subject it would in time by common cu mt become a part of th law of nation. What had been done, he taid, to put down the practice, had not repressed and scarcely mitigated the evil. The diminution of the number of nations which still permitted the trade had made the ob jects of it very cheap on the coast of A frica, and the consequence wa that great numbers of the wretched being were crowded into small vessels, and tha evil and cruelty were rather increased than diminished. To cure tha evil, the prohibition must be absolute and universal while it wat partial it mutt be ineffectual. Mr. Camnhell. without beinr prepared for a ditension of the subject taid be could not at present tee the propriety of adopting a retoluiioo irnm which no good coum remit ; lor we, a ie gislators, taid he. cannot enter into any contract with foreim nation?. The executive only, he taid, wa the proper branch of the government to lorm tucn an arrangement, ana ii it naa been neceuair. be preiumed th executive wou d nave a one io out it worn a ue useie, sou m before imnroner. for the Senate to act oa the tub . . - i . - . 1 1 1 i ... i Ject, because they could not act with effect. It had been remarked, however, that the expre tioo of an opinion by the senate, might be useful. and mat this course was a common practice wita the British parliament. It wa common, ne Knew f parliament to addreM bumble petition to tb kimr. that he would cause certain measure to be executed : but between that practice and ours (here waa no analozv. When thit congress act. ed. Mr. C. said, thev acted effectually, and did not and ousrlit not ever to undertake what they have not power to carry into effect 1 hero was pert.apt but a tingle instance of a departure from thit practice in tne senate, woea, on roe occasion, they recommended to the executive to send a minister to a fore inn government. That mea sure he always disapproved, and he was on principle averse to originating any proposition in th senate, wiucn tneir contuuiuoaai wwi uiu aw enable them to consummate. Beside thi, Mr. C. declared hi unwillingness to enter into any compact whatever, with any foreign power to regulate our own conduct, or to carry - our law, into effect Two nation had thought proper still to permit the trade alluded to. What compact, said Mr. C. are we to form with other, to in dace those nation to forbid it ? Are we to require Spain and Portugal to give up thi trade ! Are He to unite with Fraoce and to eland to urge them to give it up.' And, should they yet refuse, are we to attempt to force them by arms to do to i Are we, be atked, prepared to risk a war for this object? He confessed he could not tee to what other result the proposition tended. Mr. Burrill again briefly addressed the Senate, and read to it the 10th article of the treaty of Ghent, to (hew that the proposition was not a novelty, and that the United blatfswere specifically pled'ed to Great Britain to use " their best eodeuvori" to abolish the trade. Mr. Troup replied that, in the very provision referred to. tha Executive had cautiously and pointedly - abstained from compromjting the country to any connection for this object the ar ticle oi the treaty stipulating simpiy mat eacn party would, with good faith, carry into effect it own statutes on the cubject of his trade. The article, in short, engaged the partie to do that whirb, Mr. I . said, would nave neen aone ny Uie United State without any such stipulation. Mr. Kine rose to enter hit dissent to the con st ruction given by Mr. Troup to the article of the treaty ol uneui wnicn naa oeen quoteo. surely, he taid, it would be much more offeesive to admit that we would enter into a stipulation with a foreign government to carry our own statute into execution within our own territory ; where our power is complete, than that we should engage in a concert to tuppres a particular trade oo the high tea. - He would enter into oo such stipulation with any power on earth, e - ven if it bad been deemed necessary ; but in thit cat it wat not He thought the true intention of the article was, that the parties would use I heir joint endeavor to put an end to the traffic, f Mr.lL then proceeded to remark on the cir cumstance of the caie, which be presumed Mr. Uampneii bad referred to, in which the senate had volunteered it opinion on a certain subject to the executive but it afterwards appeared, oeeiplanatii.a that Mr. K. and Mr. Campbell bad oot relerred to the same case. Lt, how ever, injustice should be dooe to Mr. King'i view of that subject, tbey are omitted. Mr. Campbell io conclusion, observed, respecting the ttipolation of the treaty of Ghent that be did not think the provision wa intended to oblige either party to carry It own itatute in io execution, ne preiumed il wa introduced merely because the ubiect wa at that time fresh in Great Britain, and that country felt anxious to have it iitrodaced into the treaty to give that instrument m .me popularity. There was no - .Li i.i... iuin aauiuooai to rje oone in pursnance oi tne provision, and be viewed it simply a an expression of the pre - existing disposition of the parties to put down the trade entirely. A motion having been made by Mr. Campbell to postpone the resolution for further considera tion, it wa postponed to Monday without ob jection. Extract of a letter, dated "Moosvls Linn, Dec. 23, 1817.
