, From lA Unyiv lima, VbsV l.s Htm Smltm tMusUal uco(im. A ysten, nVnyhd te (anlitftU Um acquisition tt the most AalLrHtTul of tbe art, has bM invented, about this tear since, by Mr. Logier, a professor of Mbmc m UUU, noa m airrnay wuuug xico - trm Miraa a both the titter kbvdoms. Thw eyetens'is not Merely niceJeted for the OUtuaMatol'eMcbMMrtJ skill) it include ao ear end certain method of acquirinsr know - lad of tborwuzh bat, and the principle of ceoivoaitioev " The oUa aaay be prided into three parti : I. That which rotates to knowledge of the notes, and the proper position of the hand and fWer. ft. A centriraoce bt which the round est w.udeat immediately bean Mi part in tort of eontejsL 3. lite method of teactuof inosvogo baa, and the nature of harmony. Mr. Logier has in tea ted a machine, which he calls, a. Chiraobut. or Hand - director t thia ma chine is composed of a portion frame, and finger aad wrist guide, vre taken own aetcnpuou. " J he position - frame b formed of two parallel rails, fixed to the pianoforte, and extending Iron one extremity of the keyt toineoioer i in Use of it b to pre rent any undue eleration or depression of the hand and arm. ' ' Tbe finger guide are two moveable brass frames with fire mvkiont, teparating and confining to their respective key the thumb and the murfiiirera: these division correspond perpen dicularly with the key of the instrument, and may be moved to any situation by mean of a brass rod, no which they are made to slide. To each finger - guido will be found attached a brass wire with it regulator, called The wrist etude ; the use of which is to pre terve the proper position of the wrist, and to prevent it being inclined outwards, which would necessarily withdraw the thumb from the proper command of Us key. Thus disposed, no appro - beamon ean b felt of misplacing the finger, bands, or arm) ifi therefore unnecessary even at the key) and the eye may be en tirely fixed en the mutic t which, it mutt be ob vious, is the essential ground - work for the at tainment of that desideratum, called flaying at ignf. loo hand, warn once confirmed Dy ha bit in the position and compass proper to be pre - erred in ordinary a inculcated by the finger - guide, will always return to it, however various passages may require its temporary extensioo, with satisfaction and ccofldence, as to a rallying point Iran wni h it set out." ' The mode of teaching the name of the note S ingenious, and sufficient for the purpose; but a wo do not consider this a matter of great difficulty or importance, we sliall not dwelt upon it Use second is a most happy thought: and if the system is to stand, will be it main pillar and support. A erie of musical lesson, prog re aire in difficulty, and all constructed to the tame harmony, hare been prepared. By this means, all the pupils, however numerous, aad of whatever proficiency they may be, who practise in the tame roots, are made to tnatain a part iu a XMH trt exactly more or let important in proportion to their several abilities : for example, the lowest clan, by the help of the chiroplast, play the fundamental ban with the left band, noJ corresponding tlow note in the treble with thu right : the next, one band being freed from restraint, play a sort of accompanimnot, moving in crotchet or quaver with the right baud, though the left, still held in ealntary bondage, trikee only a few tlow note. - The third class, f elcased from the chiroplast entirely, play I arpeggio, or quick pasage; while the fourth class, still farther advanced, doet the tame with the left hand, and strikes chord with the right 'Ail this it going on MtnulUneoudy, and cannot tail, to our apprehoiisioo, of producing two most important results, vis I Strict adherence to tlie tune or measure, and an early sense of the beauty of harmony t both which are thu imbibed With the Grit rudiinent of the art. The third part of Mr. Logier't plan resembles the Luncasteiiius method of teaching to read j (lie popilt rUnding in a semicircle before a black "board or screen, on which are drswh five or tix . tlav of mutic lines, and on this the pupils inscribe the note with chalk, and are led on by easy and gradual etept to a knowledge of the theory. VI e shall describe presently the rctoltt ot inn process. - The tyttem of Mr. Logier bat been hitherto unknown in London, except in theory. .9 bout four mouths ago, Mr. Samuel Webbe, a gentle Bum high in the profession, and well known to the musical world, determined on receiving a Bomber of pupils at his own bouse for the pur pote of putting its merits fairly to the test of ex pertinent. The result of that experiment, and of four month practice iu ch ilJxen, few of them exceeding six or seven year of age, wat exhibited yesterday at the Argyle - rootns. Mr. Logier aintelf wat abo present, with four pupils, three of them sisters, whom be has brought with him from Ireland, and who have been under hit tuition between two and three rear. We have been extremely gratified with thia exhibition - There were in all eight pianofortes, of course tuned to each other, in the room ; at tome were , placed two, and at other were three, of the incut performer ; tome had both hands, other one only, guided by the chiroplast other were quite free : the little orchestra moved together Wan a precision which it uncommon even in well regulated bands. The junior popilt next described on the board frith halk the different keyt in muic, the flat and sharp peculiar to each, their relation to each other, together with the enharmonic changes which might be made use of in the extreme flat or sharp keyt to facilitate their execution there was no embarrassment here, and each teemed eager to display her knowledge. The more difficult exercisei on the board were reserved for VI r. Loner's pupil ; they described the harmony of the diatonic scale, ascending and descending both in major and minor keyt ; the narmooic variations of woicn it H uceptii)le the inversion of that harmony ; the tuen;iont ol each chord in the modulation, and those again inverted. The whole conclude with tome composition of Corelli, Scarlatti, and Mozart, which was perform d by Mr. Logier four .pupils in the moil unirhed manner. We are persuaded lhat thia it a most import ant ditcoTcry, and that it will be of equal ad vantage to the public and to the protestor of music. I nousands even of adult, to whom the mecnanum ane hrtt rudiment of music have presented an Insuperable difficulty, will now have the mean of acquiring an art, which it the best oruiment of prosperity and a real solace of adversity t the professor, while he escapes from a most tediout and disgusting process, will be enabled, and with belter effect, to teach twenty pupils with the tame trouble as one ; while, a they advance beyor.d the rodiments, those refinement! both in playing and cntn position, only to be acquired by imitation, will be equally tougbt for from bit skill. XEIV - YUHK ACKWVJVO POST. Tl'ESOAT, JANUARY 27. Tiu federalist. It is announced in the news - paper at Washington, that a new edition of thii work i in pre, at that place, and will be delivered in November next, with, the name of the respective number prefixed to each, as obtained " from a source which cannot be queitioaej." Tiu Wmdiington City Cuttile abo, in December last, observing that at a contrariety of opin ion, on lb tubject of the different writer of i this work existed,' be, for the tstis.'actioo ofth public, and to put the question at rest,'1 guvs lot (hat wat u fureiiLed by a gtnlimm who re. ceteed it troa Mr. Maaito, wbkbbe ttj wOl be found ifidajmtaUy cwtwsL" i, Thiwu - proved by another editor ato UmaertioMthat IbelBtwMfaraisbedbyMr.Madifoa luaoeU. But whoever furnished it, or whenceeoever wat derived, 1 scrapie not to my, it it not entitled to credit ; sod I caution Mr. Gideon, the pubiyi - er, against adopting it in his work, under the p - m wS bavin ki litaa denounced eml 1 j ' . . . now proceed to give the prootf upoti wnica fixak wHh ruch confidence. ' In the National Intelligencer appeared the first attempt to rob the dead, in order to decorate the brow of the living; and the following para graph appeared in that paper of March 16th, a from a correspond en U - take it upon me to ttaU from xndvhilablt authority, that Mr. Maditon wrote no. 1U, 14, 18. 19. JO. 37. 38. 39, 40, 41, 42. 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 68, and flt, 83 and 64. Mr. Jay wrote No. 2, 3, 4 and 5, and Mr. Hamilton the residue." The writer of this paragraph, in order to give it the most imposing air, added, that if the list disputed, he appealed to Geo. Hamilton' papers that be left behind him, and tbey would tbew it te be correct He wat taken at h word ; the papers were appealed to, aad the fol lowing wat given to the public at an exact tran script of the one left by Gen. Hamilton with i friend a few day before hi untimely death, and doubtless, m express apprehension of that awful event. Numbers 2, 3, 4, 5 and 54, Mr. Jy. 10, 14, 37 to 48 inclusive, Mr. Ma duoo. - 1ft, 19, 20. Mr. Madison and Mr. Hamilton Jointly. All the rett by Mr. Hamilton." A corresponding key hat long been in the pot - session of several gentlemen here ; furnished, toon after the Federalist appeared in volunee, by Mr. Royal Flint, a man of letters and a political writer, since dead, but at that time in habits of intimacy with Gen. Hamilton, and all the princi pal men of that day, and who asserted, on hit personal knowledge, that it wat correct. From this it appear that the Washington list it incorrect at to every one of the writer named : For instance : No. 64 was churned by Mr. Madison which certainly belonged to Mr. Jay, a bo waa long denied to hare written more than four papers: Not. 18, 19 and 20, were claim ed by him, although thut proved to belong jointly to himself and Mr. Hamilton ; and no lest than twelve entire paper, namely, from 49 to 55, and 62, 63, alto claimed by Madison, were solely written by Hamilton. The result of thia investigation was immediately fublithed in this paper, and the tubstance of it copied into most of the other papers in the United States. A. little dissatisfaction was manifested in the Nauonal Intelligencer, at the time, with a promise that the subject nhould be returned at tome future day, when the tndtipufaofc authority" should return from the South. The next we hear worth attention, it from the article in the Washington City Gatete, above quoted, and copied into the Commercial Advertiser; in which, the editor, without taking the least notice of the error which had been detected by gon. Hamilton paper, to which Mr. Madison's friend had ex - prenly appealed, and by which he was conte quently forever concluded, undertakei to repeat that he will put the question io dispute, forever at rett, by giving a list "furnbhed by a name - lesi geutleman at second band who received it from Mr. .Vadison himself," which, be adds, " will, (alto,) be found indirpulably correct." rhit, the reader will remember, it long after be knew its correctness wat not only disputed, . but by the highest authority proved to be falie. The Gazette then proceeds to give hi list thus fur - niihed : M By this it appear that letter 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 1 1, it U, 15, 10, m SK, S3, 24. 25. 26. 27.28. 2, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, &, 36, 59. 60, 61, 65, 66, Ol, OU, M, U, f ,7, 73. 74, 75,78, 77, 78. 79. 80. 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, were written by Mr. Hi - nil, i . seller jt 3, 4, s, 64, by Mr Jav And lettcrt 10, 14, 17, 18. 19. 21. 37. 38. 39. 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51. 52. 53, 64, 55, 56. 57, 53, 62, 63, by Mr. MADISON. Fdty by Mr. Hamilton ; five by Mr. Jay ; and miny oy oir. Mauison." It may now be worth our while to examine how far these two authenlie lits, both derived from indubitable authority, both asserted to be, indirectly, from Mr. Madison himself, and both declared induputabty correct, agree with one another, and how for they do not : because, if it is found they differ materially from each other. it will no longer be pretended, I presume, that they are both " xndirputably correct." First, then, in the National Intelligencer it was ajtertcJ that Mr. Jay only wrote four papers, vie. 2, 3, 4 and 5 ( and this assertion wat per sisted in after the error had been publicly rectifi ed aud pointed out. It wat asserted lhat Mr. Madisoo wrote C4, and it wat accordingly tct down in the first list claimed by him. But here in this second litt, in the City Gazette, we find the somber allowed Mr. Jay it five, and 64 is, at length, given up. The truth is the fact had been ascertained and stated by Mr. Jay't Nogra pher in Delaplaine'i Repository, and the chasm which occurred between the 5th and 64th num ber accounted for, in a manner that convinced tomtbody it would not be prudent to persist in urging a claim, while the witness who could prove its irjuttice wat itill alive. .4 gain : In the first litt in the National Intelli gencer 20 is claimed a Mr. Madison', a well at 64. In the second m the City Gazette 20 it allow ed to Mr. Hamilton, a 64 is to Mr. Jay. In the second Utt 17 and 31 are both claimed by Mr. Madison, but in the first both these numbers, 17 and 21, are given to Hamilton. Thut we see irreconcQeable discrepancies in the two " indisputably correctn lists, and yet it it boldly asserted that both are placed beyond all controversy, and both derived from a source that admits of no doubt. M The colli sion of one falsehood with another, says an able polemic divine, hat often demonstrated the falsity of both.'1 To turn op the whole in a word : a particular mode of proof it pointed out as conclusive, and by thit it hat appeared that one paper claimed by Mr. Madison, sis. 64, was written by Mr Jay ; that torse other paper claim - A mistake for ft - edb r UA Ma&ea,' si. 18, 19, n8 , were written by Hamilton and himself jointly i and lhat ten elhert, vis. from 40 te 58, and fx, 63, now claimed by Mr. Madison, were not any part of thetn written by bias, bet solely by Mr. Ha milton. Inites therefore, of tbe statement that 50 were by Mr. HamHtoo, 30 by Madbon, and 4 by Mr. Jay it appears, by evidence of their own selection, lhat 62 were written by lumil ton, 3 by him and Madison jointly, 6 by Mr, Jay, and the residue, viz. 16 only by Mr. Ma - dltnn. How musferkrygenerout mind revolt at thit ruthless attempt to wrest any portion of his Jutt fame, from a able and disinter etted a friend b - thit country and its liberties, at ever breathed ? A Lit ! be bat left no other patrimony to hit chd dren 1 In the name of justice as well at of mer cy, then, seek not to lessen iU Monruur 7Vnsn ttmt crei'n. Meant have been found to induce the executive once more to bring forward and recommend f the favor able attention of coo grew the extraordinary claims of the representative! of the Caron Beau marchais, upon the United States for one million of livres, and the Interest from 1783, that is. thirty - five year the 25th of next February The merit of this claim, when it was first brought forward tome years ago, were fully ex posed by a writer in thit paper, under the tigna ture of " An American," which wat written by the late Governeur Morris. So tatis factory was it to the public that the claim wat for that time dropt. . It has been twice revived since and hat at often been exposed and abandoned. It is now thought proper to put it forth again, and if it persisted in, again shall it be confronted with the truth. Tin claim ha no foundation ; and facts within my reach shall prove it. ' On Saturday latt a resolution parsed the lower house of the legislature of Massachusetts, re questing the hern.

PRESENTMENT. The grand inquest of the body of the people in and for the city and county of Hew - fork, now in tewion, would respectfully present to the court That in the case of Abel Cole, a youth, they have felt it to be their duty to return a bill for misdemeanor ; at the tame time they cannot, in justice, refrain from expressing their firm con viction, that the accident tor which be it now indicted, might have been avoided by a due exe cution oi the law to prevent the Bring of guns, pistols, fcc in the streett of the city. The grand jury, through the intervention of the court, would endeavor to obtain from the mayor, aldermen, and common council, tucb alterations and amendments to that law as would render liable to heavy penalties those who might aid and abet in it violation by telling to children powder, cracker or squibs. But they are, in tome measure, deterred from thit course by a recollection of the many penal laws which are daily violated with impunity ; among others, tbe acta to prevent the gallopping of pleasure horse through the city ; tbe trotting of horses before carts ; the neglect to remove mow and ice from the walks, especially of public buililmgs; and tbe forestalling in the markets. They would al to tuggest, that the city lamps are not sufficiently aumerout nor well lighted. The grand jury cannot dote this presentment without remarking, that they consider it a demo ralising and onjast system to load the tlatule - book with penal laws, which are permitted to tie violated until some accident happens, when rigid punishment follows. It is believed that it would be more consistent with the gennit oi our zoveroment. and more equitable in the corner vators of our laws, to prevent, by due diligence, those accidents which occasionally happen than to punish the individuals who are the immediate, but sometimes comparatively innocent,' cause of them. (Signed) RENSSELAER HAVENS, Foreman. MAT. L. DAVIS, Secretary. New - York, Jan. 16, 1813. Impostant. Extract of a letter from a. person of high re pectability in London, to hi friend in Phi ladelphia, dated Dec jth, 1817. " Tbe British Government has at length a - (Treed, at the request of the Allied Power of Europe, to become the mediator between Spain and her colonies." From the A'alumal Advocate. Infernal tonipiracyK concurrence of cir - cum.'lancet bat led to the discovery of an infer nal conspiracy in this city, which hat been mark ed by no ordinary leaturet ol atrocity. An Ita lian servant, in tbe employ of a respectable fa mily, wat dismissed by the master of the house on Thursday last, for drunkenness. To revenge himself, he meditated, hi compiny with one of his countrymen, and the black female cook iu the same family, to carry their diabolical plot into effect. It appear, that the Italiaa, after being dismissed, retained, with hit companion, to the house the tame evening, ami while in the kitchen nn the coak, in conference, wat overheard by the chambermaid, in explanation of their plant On alarm being given, and proper search made, the two Italians were discovered and secured. The cook confessed that their plan was to take advantage of the absence of the master of the bouse, who was about leaving town ; and in the evening, by a given signal, were to be let into the bouse by her. Tbeir design was to vto'a'e the females of the family, consisting of two ladies and two servant girls, and to murder them ; after wliich, they intended to rob the house, set fire to it, and escape. The cook also confessed tiiat she wat to receive $130 after the plate had been told, and corroborated lhat part of the conspira cy which had been overheard by the maid. The parties have all been apprehendrd by Robert Thillip and Azl Coocklin, constable of the 7ib ward, secured in Bridewell, and will shortly be put on their trial. The discovery of thit infernal design has prevented a terrible event, and will serve to operate as a caution to families in hiring foreirn servant. These particular hare beeu related to us by tbe gentleman of the bouse. From lite Boston CcnliniL, Jan. 21 On Tuesday last, the gentlemen of the Bos ton Theatre, at a mark of respect to Mr. In - cledon, invited him to a dinner, at Concert.

From a eentleman who left Havana on the 9th inst. we learn that the report of the de - tention of American vessels in that port, in consequence of information received that the United State Government had taken posses sion of Amelia Island, is totally without foun dation, nor did he hear that the intelligence of the taking of the Island had reached Uicm.

Tbey bave presented the corporation for passing ordinances and then suffering them to be infringed with impunity. There can be nothing to ilestructive to good order at patting laws and omitting to carry them into effect better Have none. But there it one offence which must star the grand jury in the face, every day of their lives, which, however, they do not notice. I mean the advertising for sale, contrary to statute, lottery tickets out of the state. Unlets an example it made of those concerned, the practice will continue. CIVI3.
