These are frequent cases, and will Cod testima. ay in the experience of all clastrt of mea who are obliged to hare small debts.

"... . v CIRCULAR. : Treasury Department, May 7, 1817. - SIR A general impression appear to prevail ia aU the commercial cities, thatfraudi upon the revenue are committed to considerable extent, by mvoicuur merchandise paring aa ad valorem duty, which costs lets than tweuty - Bve cents the yard, with those which exceed that price, so as to produce aa average value above tweotynve cents the rod, and thereby Introduce coarse and cheap fabric without paying th duty coo - templated by lb taruX k According ta tn tame impression, frauds of a more glaring nature are frequently committed npoa the revenue, especially in importation npoa consignment, by the introduction ot articles not described ui the mvoi ces, which, from the imperfect manner in which the inspection of the package are made, escape with impunity. ' It is possibl that thi impression may not be correct to the extent that it has been made, . but it is believed that a due regard to public opinion upon this subject, requires that a more ngwi inspec tion than lias heretofore been made should now be attempted, with a view tc detect the fraud which are supposed to be practised. - It is therefore proposed, 1st, that a certain proportion of the packages which ; contain goods subject toad valorem duties, shall be se lected from each invoice by' the collector, which shall be strictly inspected,, with a view to detect frauds which may be attempted by pulling in the same invoice goods of greater and' less price than twenty - Ova ceots a yard 2d. That a certain proportion of packages paying speewe duties be designated in like man uer by the collector, which shall be thoroughly examined, for the purpose of detecting any at tempt which may be made to smuggle articles not described in the invoice. ' . .3d. That th proportion of oackasre to be de - ?igua(ed by tlie collector, oa importation upon consignment, ba double the number when the person who enters them is the owner and im porter.'. .' ' r 4th. That mall case of consignment the park - age designated shall be lodged in the ' public warehouse until the inspection be made. 5th. That every importation shall be deemed to b upon consignment, unless the person who makes Ihe entry shall expretsly neeativ the fact io oath of entry. Io order that the inspection directed for detecting frauds of the first kind may be skilfully executed, tne inspector, whose habit and infor mation qualify him for th discharge of that da ty, and in whose judgment and fidelity you have most implicit confidence, should ba exclusively empioyea lor mat purpose. As it is an object of importance that th reve nue system should be rendered at perfect as possible, and that every attempt to evade the oro - vuious of the existing laws should be known, you are requested to communicate to thi depart ment every circumstance ofthat nature, accom panied by suggestions of the provisions necessary to repress the evil. 1 am, very respectfully, sir, lour obedient servant, (Signed) WM.

We have received Curacoa Gazettes to the 13th inst. from which we have cooled torn arti - cles, principally regarding the oppressions, ear ned on aoum America. ) - . CURACOA. Nov. 29 There have been three arrivals this week from Puerto CabellO, but w have learnt no intcUi gene by them relative to the contending parties on the Main, that can be depended on. It is stated that gen. Morillo left Valencia on Ihe 10th inst. for Calaboxo, where he will establish his head quarters. The Independents are said to be in possession of San Fernando de A pur, but no general action had been fburht according to tho last account received in Puerto Cabello ; tne oeuigerenu saust however be approximating very fast, and we anticipate that a dreadful con flict is oh Urn eve of taking place, which will proooDiy urcide the rate of Venezuela "acoo - summation devoutly to be wished." The Independent chief general Manuel Piar, was publicly executed ia Cuayana, on the IGth of October, pursuant to sentence passed upon him by a supreme court martial, of which Ad miral Brioo was president, for the crime of insubordination, desertion and high treason. He was accused by his own troops, and the cri minal confessed his eoilt. A private letter from St. Thomas, dated Nov. 28, says, 44 It has been supposed by some people, that gen. Zartta would embrace the advantages held oat m the Iudulto to the disaffocted. and join me royai standard ; for this puriOe gen Humiu taieiy sum a muiioa to Him, Dy mean of a priest named Sutil, accompanied by a young . . 1 1 . ... son oi .araza, on Whom Monllo had previously conferrad the rank of emigo, offering through the medium of the priest, to make Zaraxa a brigadier if he would go over with his troops to the standard oi tne King. To which proposal Zara - sa made the fbllowiog reply : "Not until I behold my wife and unfortunate children, cruollr murdered by the legions of gen. Monllo,' restored to life again, shall I desist from the noble undertaker and rloriout strife in which I am now engaged, againH the tyrants of toeir country, and th auamns of their innocent posterity." Having said these words, he handed a t word to his ton, who (corning the rank which was given him, merely for the sake of necessity or convenience, grasped th weapon, ""with which," hi father said, "you must defend the rights of your country, and avenge th death of your mother and brethren." j Utc. 13. wa are nappy lo learn by the last account from St. Euitatius, that the commerce of that colony it ia a nourishing ttate. Twenty - four American, and many vessels belonriae to other nations, were lying ie the Roadstead. An Independent bng had tafcen oo board 4000 barrels of floor and a large quantity of provision. A letter from Guayan of a recent date, lay. " Since tha capture of the vast province of u nay an a, ana since the disturbances were queued, which were resuscitated by gen. fiar, the .furors of peace has made its bright appearance on that large and fertile Continent ; the wise measures subsequently taken to set in motion all the engine of public felicity, which are particularly agriculture and commerce, promi the happiest result ; and we will soon bar to glory ia th possession of a country dirtingnisbed by nature, where justice may establish it empire, peace it reign, and order its dominion.
