Amtha Llani Tbe situation of this island beinz at present the subject of much speculation, we have been at some pains to oouua lor early publication a report made oa Saturday last, in the house of representatives, which throws much lljrht on the motives of the occupation of that po nlion' by our government. . This report furnishes an all - suthcieat answer to most of the far - letui ed arguments used to justify the opponents of that measure. It Is really amusing to una, in someofourNWsmpeipirarrand smuggling. by a metouymical process, converted into heroism and enterprise, aad held up to the admiration of the world, - m contrast with the imputed treachery of our government ia desiring to re un from its borders those meritorious patriots engaged in it!

Those writers have certainlv discovered that step, who ran tod any itnalogy between our revolutionary principles and their supporters, and the motives aad merits of the ni difni republicans, woo (lit along our borders ia search of the most convenient recept - acle for the plunder of the ocean. It is a subject of painful regret to the best friends of the repub lican cause in South America, that so much la - bor is bestowed to identify the Amelia island party with the real friends of South American louependance. . CONGRESS. . HOUSE OP REPRESEnTATIVEa. Saturday, January 10. , The speaker bud before the bouse a letter dt reeled to the congress of the United States, from a certain Carl Theodore Mohr, ressding in Wat' lendorf, ia Germany, ofleiinf to come to Ameit ca upon certain conditions, and to establish a manatactory of porcelain, which was read and ordered to lie en the table. On motion of Mr. (Sergeant, the committee of ways aad means were instructed to enquire into the expediency of allowing a drawback upon refined sugar exported from the United States. , AMELIA ISLAND. Mr. Mkldletoa, from the committee on as much of the message of the president of the U. States aselates to the illicit introduction of slaves from metis Island into the United States, made tht following report t The committee to whom was referred so much of the prerident's message as relates to the illicit ntrodurtion of slaves from Amelia Mand, having refully taken the matter committed to them ffaTMmg - Spplftd to Ihe department of state or iidbrmtition respecting the illicit introduction f slaves into the United States, they were re ferred by the secretary of state to the documents ransmitted to this houe by the president's tags of the 15th December last, coMwttaa of ra rious extracts of paperj on the files of the depart meats of state, of the Irearury, and of the navy, relative to the proceeding of certain perrons who took possession of Amelia Hand In the summer of the past year, aad also relative to a simitar establiihment previously made a1 Galveston, near the month of the river Trinity. Upon a full investigation of these papers, with a view to th subject committed to them, your com mite - are of opinion, that it ia but too notorious, that numerous infrartinna of the law prohibiting the importation of Slaves into the United States have been perpetrated with impunity upon our southern frontier and th are further of opinion, that similar infrsctions would have been repeated with Increasing ac tivity, without the timely tntc not it in of th naval force under direction of the Kxo - utire of our rovernment. In the course of the inves titration, your committee have found it diffi cult to keep separate the special matter gven into ueir cuarge, rrora topics era more gee - al nature, which are necessarily interwonn .herewith i they therefore crave the indulgence of the House, while they present some general views, connected with the subject. which bat e developed themselves in .the pro - secutioo of to eir enquiry . It would appear from what had been col lected from these p pers, that numerous vio. Litions of our laws have been latterly commit ted by a combination or freebooters and smugglers of various rations who located themselves in the first instance upon aa uninhabi ted spot near the mouth of the nvi Trinity, within th jurisdictional limits of it United States, as claimed in virtue of the treat of cession or Louisiana oy France This association of persons organised a system of plunder upon the nign seas, directed ciueR?. against Spanish propertv, which consisted frequently of slaves from tLe coast of Africa i but their conduct appears not alvava to have been regulated by a strict regard to the national cha racter or vessels falling into their bands, when specie or other very valuable articles formed part or the cargo. .Their vessels generally sail ed under a pretended Mexican fug, although it does not appear that the etiablUhment of Galveston was sanctioned by or connected with any rovernment The presump ion. too. of any authority ever having been given for sucb an establishment, is strongly repcUed as well by its piratical character, as by its itine rant nature , for the first position, at Gaveston, was abandoned on or about the 5th of April last, fur one near Matagorda, upon the Spanish territory i and at a later period this last was a - bandoned and a transfer made to Amelia Isl and, m East Florida , a post which bad been previously seised by persons, aho appear to have been equally unauthorised, and who were. at the time of said transfer, upon the pdl"t, it is believed, of abandoning the.r enterprise, irom the railutofresourcea,whichuiey expected to have drawn from within our li mils, in defiance of our laws There exuta, on the part of these sea rovera. an orvanueJ erstem of daring enterprise, supported by force of arms , ana it is only by a correspondent system of coercion that they can be m t and constrained to respect the rights of propeny and tlie laws of nations. It is deeply to be regretted that practices of such a chancer, whliia our immediate neirbborhood. and even within our jur.sdictional limits, should have prevailed un - cnecaea ror so long a timet more especially, as one of their immediate con - equences wa to give occasion to the illicit intro - luciiosi of slaves from the coast of Africa into the United States, vX huQ rcricc traffic repugnaoil to humanity and to all sound P.i5?"

By the jomHresolutioo of the senate ana bouse of representatives of 15th January, J811, anu rha mrt Miha assne data, the president ss fully empowered to occupy airy part or the whole of the territory lying east ot tne nver reiaioo, south ofthestati of Georria, in the eveot of aa attempt to occopy the saidterritorys any part thereof, by any foreign government or power I iihI - bv th tame resoinlioa ana aci. ne mav em ploy any part of the army and navy of the United Stales, which he may deem uecessary, for the purpose of tokina possession and occupying the tarritflrv aforesaid, and in order to maintain therein the authority of the United States. Among the avowed projects of tha persons who have ocennied Ameha - isianu. was uiat oi io - the conquest of East and West Florida, pro - ressedlv lor tha ouroose of esUDUsunt; were an mdeDendent rovernment 1 aad the vacant lands to those provinces have been, from the origin of this undertaking down to toe latest penoo, neiu out as lures to the cupidity of adventurers, and as resources for defraying the expenses m me expedition. The greater pert of West Florida, being in tha actual possession of the U. 8tates, this protect involved in it desirus of direct hos tility against them i and at the express object of tha resolution ana act oi lain January, ion, was to authorise the president to prevent the province of East Florida fross pawinj; into the haodi of aay foreign power, it became the obvious du ty of the pretiuent to exercsse we auwomy vested in him by that law. It does net appear that amoog these itinerant establish of republics, and distributors of Florida lands, there is a single individual inhabitant of the country where the republic was to be constituted, and whose lands were to be th us bestowed : the project was therefore an attempt to occupy that territory by a foreign rower. Where the profession is in such direct opposition to the fact where tha Venerable forms, by which a free people constitute a frame of government for themselves, ara prostituted by a horde of foreign freebooters, lor purposes of plunder l if, under color of authority from aay of the provinces contending for their independence, the Florida, or either of them, had been permitted to pass into the hands of such a power, the committee are persuaded it is quite unnecessary to point out to the discernment of the house the pernicious maoence, wtucn suco a destiny of the territories in question must have had upon the security, tranquility, and com merce of tins union, - It is a matter of public notoriety, that two the persons who have successively held the com mand at Amelia Island, whether authorised themselves by any rovernment or not, have is sued commissions for privateers, as in the name of the Venesuelian and Mexican governments, to vessels fitted out id the porta of the United States, and chiefly macned and officered by our own countrymen, for the purpose of capturing the property of nations with which the United States are at peace, une or the oojects or toe occupation of Amelia Island, it appears, was to possess a convenient resort for privateers of this description, equally reprobated by the laws of nations, which recognise them only under ins denomination of pirates, and by several of the treaties of tha United States with different European powers, which espreasly denominate them as such. It was against the subjects of Spain, one of the powers with which tha United States have entered into stipulations proeibitinr their Cltiseos from taking any commission from SFBnigaoyshTia to act as privateers, thaTthese vessels have been commissioned to cruise; though, as the committee have observed, do flag, not even that of our own country, baa proved a protection from them. The immediate tenden cy of suffering such armaments, hi defiance of our laws, would have been to embroil the United States with all the nations whose commerce with our country was suffering under these depredations i and, if not checked by all tha means ia the power of the government, would have authorized claims from the subjects of foreign governments for indemnities at the expense of the nation, for captures by our people, n vessels fitted out in oar ports, and, as could not fail of being alledged, countenanced by the very neglect of tha necessary mease for suppressing them. The possession of Amelia Island as a port of refuge for such privateers, and of illicit traffic in the United States of their prises, whiih were frequently, as befor stated, slave ships from Africa, was a powerful encouragement ens' temptation to mul'iply the violations of our laws, tod muds it the duly of the government to nse all the means in its power to restore the security of our own commerce, and that of friendly nations upon onr coasts, which could in no ether way more effectually be done than by taking from this piratical and smuggling combination their place of refuge. Io order, therefore, to give full effect to the intentions of the legislature, and io pursuance of the provisions of the above recited resolution and acts, it became necessary (as it appears to yoor committee) to suppress all establishment of the hostile nature of those above described, made iu our vicinity, tha objects of which ap. pear to have been the occnpalioa of the Flori - das, the t polialica of peaceful commerce upon and near our coasts by piratical privateers, the clandesliae importation of goods, aod the illicit introduction of slaves within our limits. Such establishment, if suffered to subsist and strengthen, would probably have rendered nugatory all provisions made by law for the exclusion of pro hibited persona. The coarse pursued on this occasion, will strongly mark the feelings aad intentions of our government upon the great ques tion ol the slave trade, which u so justly coosi - dered by most civilised nations as repugnant to justice and humanity, aod which, in our parti cular case. Is not im so to all the dictates of a sound policy, - - Your committee anticipate beneficial results from the adoption of these measures hy theesccu - ti ve, ia the promotion of the srearitv 01 our south ern frontier and its neighboring seas ; and in the diminution of II evasions, latterly so freqeent, of our revenue aad prohibitory laws. The experience of ten years has however eviuced the necee sily of some oew regulations being adopted, in order effectually to put a stop to the farther introduction of slaves into the United Slates, la the act of Congress prohibiting this importation, uie p"ncv ia eisme ins wnoie lormtura or ves srl and f - odi so the U.
