Th Comaaercial Adrerejer, of Wodaeaday evening, contain a paragraph which require aa answer, and I must apologiae for devoting a part of say paper to that purpooe, since it i rather of a personal thaa a pmblic aatare. Mr. Lewi charge me with aMarapreaonlatioa of hi opinions, a charge which af true, ought to deprive me of all credit, and which, if 1 do aot saUs&ctorily repel, 1 willingly consent to incur the consequence, hcaaaotbe xpected thai cursory readers wiH take the trou ble to call to rocouoctJoB the particular, or to collate and weigh the aaerits of a peat dispute, lattuMttf. be excused If I briefly Meant lulate a saw facta. Some time since I suggested strong doubt whe ther the Executive, in ordering th Florida ex - peditioa, bad aot exercised po wer uakaowa to th constitution ( and that thaaueatloa might be fairly considered, I waa carafe) to confine it to Amelia - Wand j indisputably under fbrelg Ju risdictlsi purposely BVoUicg saying any thing efuajveaaoai thejorisdictioBof which waa by considered doubtful. For similar reason. I avoided entering, at all, into the expediency or poucy of the measure, aa K regarded th United Stateet beaof desirous of presenting the timpl oooatitutiooal question, cleared of all extraneous matter. Th CommerciaJ Advertiser, arrayed aunscu, aa I unJ satipoe, au aide of the executive, aad undertook to justify the meaaure ia a dictatorial styl that did aot become hum, but be took particular care to mention Galveston, a - kae, and not Amelia: TbJt I noticed, at the ttme, bat could "hardly impute to him ao pitiful a piec f cunning as to aeppose that he did it by design, and with a view to future evasion, as rt now appear by his own acknowledgment, he did. If the (Dterprize was uocoaitituUooAl, be - canee u was directed by the Executive alone a - gainst the territory of another nation with whom wo were at peace, it could aot surely make it any the' lets so, because it waa also directed again Galveston j which, for the' argument sake, shall be admitted to belong to the United 9tate. For him to maintain, therefore, that the Executive was Justifiable, in taking poateaeioa oil a place " within th jurisdictional limit of th United States, " waa to maintain a proposition which was aot disputed; waa perfectly nugatory I aad which would have been, and it now appear it waa mere trifling and impertinence. But supposing that the ComanerdaT Advertiaer really intended to enter into a serious defence of the mev rarettsetf, I took notice of hi attempt aa auch, aad exposed na fouy in a couple of sentences. In answer, he attempted to thaw that be waa not alone, but that other editor held similar opin ion with himself; aad for that purpose, be quoted the forte sidetrHitr, justifying the suppres sion of the M tllaHUhmenU," fin the plural both Amelia and Galveston.) and the Bmbm CtnHntt, who iprosi himself in the following order. .. . , ' Aa it respect Galvrctoa and A matte, the documents amply connrm me aesenptton gives of tbom in the presideull message, andfuQy ju tifv - the mearnre adopted by him reapecting insm," x And now Mr. Lewi my thai he ha been al ways careful to snake the distinction between Galveston and Amelia i that he ha at aod third time done ao, but that I haveasoftea had the effroetery to oectsuler him a spoaJoog of both place which he declare to be uocandid andulae. Of two thiagt.eee, oitlsorMr. Lew ss aseant to delead the expedition, or he did aot t if th tatter, thea he has bee engaged in die - pule, where there was ao difbreaon, though he bad aot the opacity to perceive it aflha frrm - lbsorthedlmfeouoopeTpceeofprTid - tag crence to creep out at, wasa he shsmid oe putfioa, ne baa made it wbetbet awiittod or deaitJ, totally irraTaisui w the questioa that has leaf beam beaere the pub - 1 tic. . . .

I rladly quit a controversy with a man, wno, whsther rirht or wrong, i sure to find a aumber of really respectable person oa ha ado, trom th a&rne impulse that actuates those, who, without knowing or enquiring where the blame Be, always take part with the weaker aide, and make every other feeling give way to pity for helpless impotence. .' Let Mr. Lewi cease to meddle with question for which he 1 outfitted by education, nor re dered conversant by habits of study or con versa tion, and coo tent himself with watching arrivals, and making selections of ship - news and amusing stories for grown gentlemen, and there to no doubt, though no never probably will be charg ed with witchcraft, but he may still preserve the character of a good sort of a man.

W have no room for the proceeding even of Immediate interest, at length I th moat wo can give st a summary, Mr. Trimble ha introduced a resolatioa into th house authorising the president to demand the liberation of Me. Mead, detained m the tie of Santa Ca talis a, at Cadix, and in the event of a refusal oa the part of Spain, to mak repri - la: which waa ordered to lie on the table. Mr. Forsyth laid th following resolution on tbe table Resolved, That the committee of ways and mean be instructed to enquire whether tbe Bank of the United State It authorised by ita charter to receive as pledge or security for loan made to individual or corporation, n transfer of public debt made to the Bank, or to any officers (hereof, and if in their opinion such transfers are not authorised by tbe act of incorporation, to report to the bouse some effectual mode of preventing them from being hereafter made.

Ti tht Editor oftht Etening Pott. SIR Permit me, through the medium of your paper, to inform a aumber, who, I under stand, are desirous to know the purport of a pe tition which has been presented to the legislature, praying an alteration in the law relative to the inspection of domestic distilled spirit, that the object of it is to equalise the rights of individual, M promote the happiness, edvaace the honor, and perpetuate tbe independence of our country," by putting it out of the power of the inspector to bold tbe office a a sinecure, and out of the power of hi deputy to form a combination with one narer, which amy operate to the in - convenience of tbe public, and to the exclusion of j every other ruarer, wno cannot a vad himself of tbuadvaisUgMM such a connection. - This a alt that a designed, which, I presume, ao boa est man caa have any objection to. Though 1 do not doubt tbe assertion of Anti - Sia scare, I win not with him presume to my, that the inspector has never attended to th business himself t that he ha aer annotated but on deputy, and that the public baa been put to many unnecessary ex pence and inconvenience in consequence thereof ; yet I will say, that as th law now stands, it would be an easy matter for an inspector to hold the office as a sinecure, aad take to himself the whole revenue thereof, as it would be a guager,a advantage to pay the salary of a deputy inspector, oa condition that be shootd aeglect to inspect the liquors goaged by any other guager, and by staying constantly with him, enable him to monopolize the bosinets to the exclusion of all others. Now I do not aay that this gam ha been played ; but. I solemnly ever that, notwithstanding the strictest search, I have not been able to find " a loop whereon to aang a doubt", mat aomethmg very Ilk tt has been long in vogue but whether it has or has not, a it may be played, it would be prudent to provide t gainst it, and to guard the peUic from a aaoual tazoftlu'eaorsaur thousand dollar. trust th honorable legnlatnre will shortly do it, to the utter confusion of all who would terrace their country withaaiaecar or a saonopolixiag A.
