I am, sir, ., AN AMERICAN TRAVELLER. January 9, 1808. . ' For the fevTork Evening Post. Mr. Coleman, ' SUl I regret that One of a JVumorr," should have taken oUuoce. that the rrand - jury of this city have presented the situation of poor anprirootd debtor. At a time, whra a pint ot benevolence and humanity - is extending its oe uijn influence, even to those who are guilty of (be highest crimes in society, is it to be endured that a man, because he, is unfortunate in busi - ness, - and unable to pay hit debts, shan be punched with greater m verity than the felon, who has bren guilty of burglary . Such is the situation of all thoj - ywho, unfortunately, are con - fined in our prisons for debt. Their .confinement is as rigorous ; and when destitute of money, (as is almoit always the situation of those 'who are confined for small sums,) they depend for their daily support upon the uncertain aid of charity, while the felou is warmly clad and well fed. : There are oi this description of debtors, constantly confined within the walls of the prison in this city, about 50 ; many of them worthy men, who have seen better day, and are reduced by unavoidable misfortunes. They bare left in penury, a wife and small children, who, deprived ef their natural prop and support, are also compelled to rely upon the miserable supplies of charity. This is not an imaginary case, but one that occur almost daily t the creditor calculating that he shall compel friend, to relieve a suffering family, by advancing the money to discharge the debt, looks with cold indifference' upon the misery he is inflicting. Upon a strict enquiry, it will be found, that a great proportion of the poor, who are confined in our prisons for debts, are imprisoned to gratify the worst passions of the human heart not uafre - quently with an avowed intention to punL - h. It u always easy to charge the debtor with soppos cd dishonesty' a an excuse for a cruel and oppressive course towards him. Iu Connecticut, it has always been a provision of their law, that a debtor, confined upon civil process, either in close confinement, or with the privilege of the liberties of the prison, if be take an oalh before a magistate, that he has not fraudulently conveyed bis property, and has not at hi command property to the amount of $lj, except loch as is exempt from execution, he shall be discharged from his imprisoomeut, unless the cre ditor puy to him ,a given turn for hi weekly maintamance ; winch sum is allowed by order of the several county courtf. And there wo never hear any complaints that the indulgence of the law it abused. It is believed that there credits are as liberally given, and debts as rigidly discharged as in any state in the union. . Is it not true, that a great proportion of these debtors, who, in the opinion of your correspondent, are to be sufferers by a change m the laws, regard' ing confinement, are of that class of citizens who are easily led to contract debts with small grocers, who like the spider set and imperceptibly winds hi web around bis devoted victim. At length Ihry find themselrea unexpectedly in - . rob' eu an .txireHy - beyond thur mean. This class of citizens are necessary and useful tbey require and deserve the protecting aid of law. . Are they thoughtless and improvident, better, far better for them and (heir families, that they cannot command a credit, than by re ceiving a credit, to be under the slave of an unfeeling creditor. If the effect of a change in our system will be to prevent a credit to that class of our cititens, the sooner it il adopted the better. Is it not a subject of the highest inter - est .and worthy the first consideration of an enlightened Irgiilature, when we find that there are annually about 500 closely confined in the prisons oi this city lor debt, and when it is Well known lhat of this number not one ha one cent at hi command. The number iu the state must he more than 1000, who in this way are withdrawn from society, who won VI bat for this unreasonable and cruel punishment, be usefully employed in laborious pursuits, in earning support for themselves and rearing families, the & it am! highest source of wealth and prosperity to any nation. I say nothing of Xhe immoral habits that are almost arcetsarily contracted; the squalid filth in which you tea them, so painful and disgusting to the eye of (he huaime. I am ret to Irani, that to imprison for debt one who has not a cent with which to purchase a gill of milk, is "a measure of seventy warranted by the most imperative necessity.1' .. - .... - - . : s, From Me George toten Xuttngtr of Feb. 4.

We question whether a New - Eoglandcr, who witnessed, the weather we had here on Saturday, would venture to depre ciate it as inferior to what he hail btea used to at home. . It is certain that lhoe who have bad a Ions experience of our climate,; cannot it col lect a more inclement day.

From the National Intelligencer, Feb 5. But little business of any important nature has been done in Congress during the last month ; not from the want of industry in either House, for their session hare been unusually laborious, but from the nature of the subjects on which they have been employed, particu larly in the House of Representatives. The case of Jno. Anderson occupied more than a week, and resulted in no legislative act The bill lespectingjudicial records was discussed several days, and rejected, after occasioning a display of unusual ability and eloquence. The commutation bill shared the same fate, after occupying as much time. The bill respecting tugitivetirom lustiee, having passed one house after several day's debate, is now before the other. The subject of extra pay to officers of the army of brevetted rand, when holding se parate commands, occupied two days, two weeks ago and yesterday, (after a' diffuse but quite eloquent debate lor the two preced ing days on the claim of gen. St. Clair.) the House again found itself debating the que. sion of brevet par, brought before it br an a - niendment or the senate to the Military Ap propriation bill. Thus the annual appropna tion bill for the .military service, for 1818, hangs between the two houses, on this ques tion i on which il neither Douse gives wav, the appropriation bill will be rejected. From the Philadelphia True American of Feb 5. ' 77ie are We went to the theatre lasterefting to see Air. rbiupp Count behno, and never did we expenence more real t a tui action from theatrical amusement. Mr. Philippe was in fine roice, and gave his songs with great sweetness and powerful effect. Indeed the . anry sketch I bo' Love is warm awhile, Is there a heart,1 The Trum pet of Victory, and the Duett with Rotalvina, was given in such exquisite stile, that drew forth the unanimous - plaudit of hi enraptured audience. The house was crowded with beauty and fashion, which fairly proves when the managers take such trouble (as they have heretofore done) to procue rational and elegant entertainment the citizens of Philadelphia very well know bow to duly appreciate it. From the RuJinumd Enquirtr. It is melancholy, that such a man as Mr. Giles cannot abstain from sarcasms upon such a man a Mr. Jefferson; the friend and benefactor of I the human race I say Mr. Giles for a Peters burg paper says it is no secret lhat he is the au thor of the CONSTITUENT, k is melancholy that in discussing a great bstract question, the propriety of public education, he should go to tar out of bis way, as to attack Tbomns Jefferson, James Monroe, and others. It is in vain, Mr. Giles tells me in his Explanatory Curd, be meant no disrespect t he intended no sarcasms against Mr. Jefferson. Credat Jud&ut ApptlLa ! The irony which is exhibited in his two first Nos. ; and to go no farther, his coupling Thomas Jeffer son and Dr. Mitchell, togethV, as two of the greatest philosophers of the age, contradicts all bis explanations, and show a premeditated design to ridicule the character of a man, who ii placed beyond his reach. : Why this weakness ou the part of Mr. Giles.' Why does the sore ami disappointed politician continually peep forth? These out - of - the - way attacks, these forced rpisodr of political resentment, have no other effect than to weaken the force of his argument, and expose their author to reluctant retaliation. - . STICK TO THE POINT. Mercy on me ! Do tlie Virginians think it derogatory to Jefferson to couple bim with our Dr. Mitchell ?

We ngret that the delicate date of wi. Ste phen Van Kenseiaer's health has hitherto pre - vented his taking hi seat as a member of the hou;e of assembly ; and w fear that his indispo sition will deprive the people of the benofit of his service during the whole cession. , Hi intimate knowledge the important question which will come before the legislature, particularly with regard to the great canal which have been com menced, the navigation of the Hudson, aod other subjects of internal improvement, would have rendered him a highly valuable manner. We were happy to learn, however, yesterday, that the health of this gentleman has somewhat improved. . From a late London paper. Mr. Reuben Phillips, Jim. of Exeter, che - mist, has obtained a pa'.ent for a .method of purrfy rg oils for the purpose of illumination i it is eff ected by passing the gas through bed of dry lime ; by which all offensive exhala tion are prevented.
