The French Funds are a little depressed. They fl actuate between 64 and 65, owing to the foreign claims.

On tne 11th March hut. an order of the Treasury appeared, allowing until the 5th April next, the free importation of Rice, or till the pleasure of Parliament should be known. Notwithstanding, bow - ever, this implied guarantee of the Treasury, an act was passed, subsequent to the said order, Urni - ting to the 14th Nov. Soot, and of coarse there is a discrepancy between the order and the act. The question awaits the orders of the Board of Customs, but the construction put upon the act is, that being mixed up with other articles the limitation of Rice from the original period (contended by the Treasury) ta the ,14th instant has been a mere oversight and though, until the point is set at rest, the duties will be held in deposit yet we have authority for saying that no doubt need be entertained of the free admission of Rice until the 6th April, 181K.

Those editors who maintain ed that the Executive had a right to exercise the power that be did in sending an expedition a. - gainst Amelia Island, triumph at the discovery of thelawof 1811, authorising him to do so : a law passed in tteret sessions more than six years ago, by those who declare that a republic should hare oo serreb, and kept a profound tteret ever since. It is not a little mortifying, the Advocate thinks to those who maintained the contrary, to find, by the publication of the late documents, that they were awtxkeo in their doctrine. But does it not occur to him, that the Tory circumstance, that a law of congress was necessary to legalise the act, aflbrds satisfactory proof, were there no o - iher, that without some such law, the president's conduct was a daring military usurpation of (be stajramf sViotr tTb, thus, lot awt cmm for triuapb " ' IthaabUthasakarflhasrjanwntsaer - ly, admitted, that the act of 1811, Mttorisad the executive to take posse rri on of the territory in question ; bnt I am by do means prepared rabscribe to that opinion. Let as Uk a flanca at the act itself. la the preamble it recites that " the Uuited States under the circumstances of the exuling triiit (at that date, 181 1) cannot, without inqui etude, see any part of said territory pass into the hands of a foreign power,' ice. and therefore enacts that the president b authorised to take possession of the same, " in cafe an arrimftmin.1 Kubttn wAall be mad wilhla total authority for delivering up tht pout u ion of Iht tame or any part thtreqf to tht United Slates, or in the event of . tht tUltmpt to occupy tlu taid territory or any part thereof by any foreign government." No axiom in law is more clear and indisputable than that all power Tested by grant matt be exercised in strict conformity with the terms of the grant la the case before us the president was retted with power to take possession of the territory in question, only, on the happening of one of two contingencies mentioned in the aforesaid act. Now, it is certain that the event first mentioned, has not happened ; and it yet remains to be prov ed that the second has happened. For aught that has yet appeared, the president has acted entirely without authority, and diametrically in the face of the constitution. I presume, how ever, proof is not wanting. I only mean to say, the public hat not been yet made acquainted with any. The sbip Minerva Smyth, capt.

From the London Morning Chronicle of Nov. 11 Meeting qf Parliament Oeneral Election A utroreeMamaetof the Royal Duket. It was yesterday reported in the political circles, that Ministers had come to the deter tnination. contrary to their settled plan, to as. semble Parliament before Christmas, for the purpose of removing; the Suspension of the Ha beas Corpus Act, and of passing some other necessary Hills, preparatory to a dissolution of Parliament. We mention this as being re - porlea yesterday ; we do not know it from au thority, but it certainly is not improbable. The recent calamity is of a nature calculated to produce most important decisive nature. Already a subject of great delicacy is every where discussed. Even the Courier of last night hints at one most interesting event as a means oi anoruy sewing an aiai ms as to a quick succession of Kinga without issue " May not the Prince Ketrent himself have is sue r" This may be interpreted in two ways. and accordingly we have heard in one quarter. a pretty significant hint, that the new Parlia ment may be moved on the subject of a Di vorce, " the principal obstacle to that measure being now removed." We believe that the great majority of the people of England will not feel that there is any political necessity tor recource to sucn a measure, especially as it could not, under all the ciroumstanres. be sanctioned by moral or religious principles. but certainly the measure is not called for. The health of his Maiestv and of the Recent gives the promises of time for the offspring of one ot tne fnnces to come to mature age, so as to avoid tne danger or a long minority and we trust that precautions wilt be aken for the union of the unmaried Royal Dukes, so as .to secure the inheritance in the lineal blood of our venerable King. LATEST FROM THE ARMY. Extract of a letter from an intelligent officer in tbe detachment of Georgia militia, to his friend in .Hilledgeviiie, dated " Camp near Hartford, ti Dec " The army arrived here two days ago. where we have since been detained tbr want of provision, we snail move again to - morrow evening I last Wednesday I nut it is my opinion that our progress will soon bo retarded from the same cause. I had, neiore my arrival at tins place. Battered myself that the opportunity would not be wanting to rentier service to the couutry ; but my opinion and belief is now entirely changed. From every thing I hare been able to learn, the Indian towns which lay ou our route, as far a Flint River, are as friemlly to tne w rules at any people can oe. At l lint Hirer 30 miles above Fort Scott we are ordered by gen. Gaines to build a fort, or works of some description, and await further orders and I be lieve at that point tbe expedition will close." Gen. Games, it is believed, still labors under wore embarrassment with respect to pursuing the Indians bevond the limits of the U. States Not having the requisite authority from govern ment, be very naturally has temples about carrying the war against the Indians into a neutral territory on hit own responsibility. Should this difficulty be removed, hostilities will be recommenced about the middle of next month, and prosecuted with vigor, till th savages are effectually chastised. A gentleman just Irom Ilartibrd informs ns. that the militia had not left there on Sunday morning, - being unable to move from tbe want of provisions. There was nothing new.
