I n . ' u 't . '11 i i.v - f V ,1 TUESDAY, FEPBUAKY 3. jfrnetatfonrf. What k wonderful plac is thit AmUa - VUid? Equally productive of cot - too and lojic. I do not recollect that nt our editors, black, whiuand grey, without regard to politic, teemed to unite, by a timoltaneous impulse, to heartily and to ably in the defence ol any measure of the government, at of that of the biking forcible poctettioo of Ihtt Island. The right of the executive to take forcible possession of a foreign territory, being questioned again and again, at length, the National Intelligencer, after being that goaded, produced a law which wat patted in crt session in 1811, til ,yra ago, (which lecrecy, it i said, wat neces - w ih British rettior (cent of oar mmtjf . 0 - aw inuuiion, should anticlpat n,r.d take the iilaod themselves, ) vetting the president with the pow , ar ia question, upon, the happening of either of tirocootnpenciea. put thos who were inclined In tease and End fault objected, that it it held to U essential to a W, that promulgation ihall precede itt aoine into operation Bat the national latrlbgeocer preeently discovered, that toon af terthe secret law wat patted, itt subttaac wat Id fact, very consistently communicated, in the course of cojtreipoodence, by the aecretary of ' state, to Mr. Begot, the British minister. Thui the law wat promulgated. This ie certainly pleatant way of retting round the objection. IV win only express a bop that this method oj promulgating the lawt by omitting to publish them to tha citizens, and communicating Iheir sabstanc to thota from whom, alone they were meaat to be kept tecret, may not be adopted in ordiaary. The National Intelligencer, however, at length retort to the ground of expediency, or policy : Policy, tayt be, after all, mutt be the guide of our statesmen; taking care, that in persuing it, they nexlKtr violate tha mitten or common lav e nation, nor exceed thexf own ewtrt. Now I thould like to know what he atetJil by policy, thus qualified and restricted? . The Philadelphia True American, next vo - lantAers hit terrioea to refute another objection whin baa beea mad to the applicability of the law tp the caae. Hue law, it ia maintained, it contingent, and vetta tha praaident with power to take fordble potteeiion only in the vent of an attempt to occupy the territory by a foreign aetw which event it dented jto hare happened. Bat a the Tnu American tayt con fideutly he can readily thew it hat, we hope he will not delay to fumith at with rath a piece of satisfactory information and we hope bewil' take care, in bit alacrity to defend tha president, not to ran full bolt againtt him for ha hat certainly told at m a late mettagt that " thete etta - bUfhmentt (Amelia and Galvsiton,) are not, it it believed, eanctioned by any foreign poicer." Twa of our public paper, one at Baltimore and the other at Boston, treat very lightly all the conttitational abjection to the conduct of the executive i and wonder that any man should doubt tha right to take ponettion of a foreign territory that it Infested with piratet and murder - 1 en, Thit, they think, b the true footing on which to place the occupation of Amelia bland. - But what ha been our conduct toward these pirates? If we had seized them, tried and convicted them, and hong them ou a gibbet to bleach, we thould then hare acted consistently at least, with the declaration that they were malcjactor ; . but instead of that, we find a formal rammoat to the occupants to evacuate the place, and to go wherever it teemtth to them good. They ac cordlngly, after living oa term of civility for aom week with their invaders, are about to take their departure, and like the jewuh patri arch seek a new residence, without any attempt to arrest or molest them. Certainly a new method of dealing with piratet. Betide, I am yet to learn in what cod of the law of nation it to be found the right of one people to enter upon and take possession of the toil of another, without leave or request, under the pretext of pun iehing criminal ? Lastly come on of our "city paper," and with all customary gravity, maintains that the president's right to order an expedition against Amelia Island, cannot be decently disputed, because, H it certain, that he would hare an unquestionable right to break op a nest of piratet oa Statea Island. Admitting the learned editor premises, (which, however, we suspect vice - president Tompkins, if it respected the occupation of hit homestead, would be strongly inclined to den y) I confess 1 cannot readily see the legiti - tnary of hit conclusion. Let as try it in the form of a syllogism; thus : The president bat a right to take possession of territory within the United Slates; Amelia Iland is not within the United ""gfSJtherofoiry tji president bat a right to tag pofteioo oY .4melia bland. All which, ewwditor thinks at clear at preaching. That we tee that though great wit jump, they do not al way jump together. 7t Itinerant tliicf On the 25th of January, Jtfetsrt. Alien's received a letter from Boston, dated the 30th, which informed them that on that day there bad been stolen from a brokerS office, in that place, a quantity of Geneva bank note, amounting to upwards of J600, but with out identifying the bills. On Friday night the 30th, late ia the evening, after their offic wat shut a lad knocking was heard, and on opening the door, a well dressed, good looking, ttout young man walked in, who taid be had come to get tome country money changed, and produced a parctl of Geneva bills, for which be wanted U Slate' bank notee ; but being told that they had - none, and could only give him city bill, be went away, bat returned in a few minutes, saying he would take them. Mr. M. Allen, having counted the Genera bills an! found they a moulded to upwanlt of $606, then told him that be bad recollected since he en ol out, that be had rxeivrd a letter front Botton lately, which wat at a friend's tint by. advising him of the mm unuiarparcelof Geneva bank bills, and al though these might not be the tame, yet be thocU venture to detaiu them for tea minutes, until be could mad for the letter and compare them with those there mentioned. .Our gentleman instantly turned at pale a deaU; but drawing out a gold watch and catting Id eve oar - lettly upon it, taid he would jutt run o - er to the ity - hotel, and be back again in precisely 11 mi nutes, at the ame time opening the door he madeoff. It may be nnoeremary to add he ha, not been heard of since. On looking at the pv per that iacloted the money, it was found to be a Boston Gazette of the tOth. The public are cautioned to be on their guard againtt thit fiuhiouably dressed itioeraat thief. Theatrical. LaH evening Mr. locledon entered apon a renewed engagement for a few night at tha theatre, and wat warmly greeted from all part of tha bo use, who testified the pleasure they experienced at again hearing the note of hi fin toned voice. Hi song were all well received, particularly AnnaU Vm and Black Kfi buian, the latter of which wat cla morously encored. The ODera itself wu performed in a manner more inadequate than we have often witnessed. The utterance of most of the actor wat so indis tinct and to rapid, and to low, that little could be understood from beginning to end. We tion Jtfr.

At IS o'clock this day the council were to be chosen, via : Mr. Seymour, western district Tate, eastern do Hammond middle do Lirinnton. southern do At the caucus last eveninron the resolution offered that the house proceed immediately to the choke of a council of appointment, some debate took place.

The motion wu lost, and on a second motion to mtke it 1 a'olock Uiitday being car ried the house balloted accordingly, and the gentlemen above were chosen. The hoae then resumed the subject on the repeal othe law to prevent duelling. The amendment offered by Mr. Duerwat read from the chair, and a motion maJa to rie and report.

After tome time spent thereon, in which Mr. Root, Mr. William and Mr. Colden expatiated at great length, th committee rote and re port eu progrest. I enclose you the debate on the duelling law. From the Botton Daily A deer liter. We bare teen in the English Journals a varie ty of eccoeni of the wonderful performance of All M'Avoy, bat from a belief that they proceeded from tome deception, which the spectator have not yet been able to detect, we have not considered them deserving of much attention.

Last June twelvemonth the wat attacked with water on tbe brain, together with a paralytic af fection on one tide, and complication of disorders, which have produced blindness. Dr. Keowick baa attended her from the commence otent of her illness. W hen we first went into tbe room it was crowded with spectator. Tbe Doctor went and braucfat her from her fatber't house.

Pttly SunnMing It has of late become tbe practice with some knavish boys to cheat coun trymen with brass counters in the shape of quarter Eagle i they go to the stranger and pretend they have just found them done up to papers, mark'd, tic. and, also pretend to be entirely ignorant ot tneir worth. . it uic countryman is deceived they make an offer to sell, and banrin it off for the most it will fetch - One man bought five at about 10. each, and has deired us to notice it, which we have done with the hope, that it may tend to pat a stop to the eviL Bewtre of Mai Dors. Two person have been bitten by two different mad dogs ia this eity, the past week. Te Steam - BoaU, &c. . Last week, in th merit, between Thursday and t riuay. in qaenceof an unusual rite of the water, the ice moved, and tore the (team - boat Lady Sber - brooks, .tfakham, and Caledonia, from their mooring, and carried them nearly a distance of JO acre. They are now on an island belonging to Nr. oouligny, about an acre beyond the ordinary water - mark. They are supposed to bav sustained little injury, and to be out of danger from the ice in the spring ; the chief trouble will be to get them launched or hauled into the water. 1 he Car of Commerce and the Swift sure are lying near each other, and were not ta ken far from their mooringt. The former it it said, bat some of her plank started, but the in' jury done ber is not ereat. The Swiftsure has oeea lets tortanate ; it is believed she rendered unfit for future service. Indeed it was not intended to ran her any longer, at the had be - vme iruj i we maciiinery only was oi any ra - tne, which w believe was taken oat of her in the autumn. We andentand that all the river craft, moored among the Boacherville island, are dispersed ia various directions ; some of them are carried a rood distance into th fieMt. Great damage has beea sustained on Mr. Grosbois' Island i between 20 and 30 head of Cattle, and nearly 50 sheep have beea drown ed, besides other losses that wdl be severely felt. The water was 5 feet deep in tha hou ses and barns. The Carding and Fulling Mill is in safety on Mr. Soulitmv's Island. The above are the outline of those disasters, given strictly tut they were communicated to us by a rentlemasxof veracity i but there may be aome trifling error, which the moat accurate observer might commit YORK, (Vmi Cas - ada,) Jan. 8. About a quarter past five o'clock m the eve ning of Wednesday the 81st ultimo, a luminous body was observed in the air, which exploded in front of the town, with two loud reports and. a strong blase of light The light and reports were so instantaneous, that although the noise was very generally heard, tew persons agree in tne description of its appearance and course. Havinir only heard the noise, we are not able to describe the meteor, u ii was one ( some supposing mat at was a mats of ignited matter thrown from the burn inr mountain at tbe head of the Lake.
