It appears by documentary evidence, that, though (me It It that the ad ranees were made as sJleg d, yet they were made, sot by Beaumarchais, bat by the king of franca, and that BeaumarM chait bad not a shadow of iaterest in these, bat was meraly the agent throojh whose hauls they ' passed ; It being aeceaary for political reasocj at (hat tima, to cooce - U from EqgUnJ tbe source wheooe they were ferniahed - Korean there b eat rp a ciaun est ths part of Fnac because it la so woof that fltaj war iprutly atot as free Shim Eltnk letter from Lcadon, dated the 19th December, b r t - twin - cnlatad by the erroneous information it con - taias, ta distress the friendi and relatioos of cap. Ui Wais - ia;of the aaip Electra, of Phila delphia. It states that m a gala oa tha coast of England the 7th and Bin uecemoer, ma ship Electra "wis likely top on tbe rocks in Guernsey Roads, when eapt. Williams ana on two sons left the ship in a boat, and there is every reason to believe that thav are lost, as ten days had elapsed and no account of them," Tbe London General Shipping and Commer cial List of Dec. ltd, received at this office, and three da vt later than the London letter, contains tbe following article, which is the latett informa tion from that drip, and no doubt is correct. ST. HALOES, Dec. II Came in. the American thin Electra, bonnd to London, totally dismasted, the captain (Wil liams) trie two sons, and one tailor, crushed I braised I by ths mast." Besides, if the information that cap t. Williams and hit two sees had been lost w the boat, had reached Loudon as early as the 19th December, it it not lingular that neither Lloyd's List, the Shipping List, oor the numerottt papers printed in Lcadon, op to the $4th of December, should van mention tha circumstance. J final adieu fe Jlfr. Lewi. Mr. Lewis hat brought forward in his Saturday evening's paper, several quotations ( rota former papers of itis own Tor the purpose of shewing, that at respects the capture of Amelia - Island he hat been always n - uiform and consistent, and that he intended to justify the conduct of the president only as it re spects Galreztoa; but in Una he only plunges deeper and deeper in difficulty. Let at tee. Hit irst quotation goes back to Dee. 24 ; but if the mgeanoat editor will tarn back a little farther to Dec. 8, bt will find that he hat adopted there an extract from tbe 5twnnaA Republican, and giren the Meet unequivocal proof that the sentiments are bit own, by inserting them in his leaded article, or York head ; which extract runt thus : "We have accounts from a source which leaves not a doubt on our minds, that the island of Amelia will be taken possession of, and Aury and his free - bootcra driven off in a few weeks, by order of our governmentpeaceably if practicable, forcibly il necessary. Tbe bland is to be held by the United States troops, until the meeting of congress, when we shall then know how matters stand between Spain and ourselves, and how they are to be adjusted. The president, in ordering the capture of Amelia, hat discharged hit duty.' Now let me ask any man who should read this extract, whether he would understand any thing else than that it wat Mr. Lewis' intention to de fend the measure of the expedition in oo, with. out any qualification ? And wat not the distinction that be afterwards made, a pitiful, dishonest Is ubterfege, unworthy any man of tease, honor integrity f I should not, however, proloeg the controvert ty, even by prodncing this piece of proof, but orfirL mm iiuiku . . - C hlS bitt asaue jeermg ana aoonve lmariu " rtligima character. " There is no small degree of malicious craA ia preferring this charge against me. The only possible pretence for ma king it, is, that I, in a previous paper, had said that a meek and quiet spirit made no part of tbe christian virtues tddeaem Zachariah Lewis." It would she w to great a want of common discre tion, and would ba so wantonly to give offence to the most respectable part of the society in which I lire, that I trust the public will, at once, be lieve I am incapable ol the gross outrage imput ed to me. Let me then appeal to any man of common seme, whether I can be accused of ieerin at hit M religious character or whether it does not strike every one at first jiht, that nothing more it meant than to express my opinion, that a man who bold so sacred an office in the church, diJ not conduct in a usmuer worthy the high station he occupied ; but that, by an auste rity of outward behavior, and greater pretences to piety than other men, he bad acquired a de gree of credit in the community to which he was sot justly entitled? It must give pain to every fair and honorable mind to lu - pect the appear ance of to much sanctity, but it it not my fault if a long course of disingenuous conduct for yean forces the conviction upon me which I bare ex pressed in the paragraph all u Jed ta.

Mr. Moran performs a concerto and an air on the forte piano,and with out meaning any disparagement to any other pro fessor, it may be truly taid, for rapiditmof exe - cnt - o and for Iwflliancy, accent and perfect in - Conation, his touch has never been surpassed in this city. Those who wish to witness the advantages of the new Logexian system have now a fair opportunity in the performance of (hit gen tleman. W cannot avoid a word respecting Mrs. Moran. Her voice, without great com pass or power, powene a peculiar sweetness, and she introduces into her songs, with great taste, numerous graces. . Mr. Keene has a very pleasing voice, and tiogt with great correctness and in a very pleasing style. F rem tht h'alianal Intelligencer, Feb. 7. xoncE. A letter has been received by the Secretary of State from Benjamin C.

From the Canadian Courait, printed at Mon treal, Jan. 31. The following is a statement of a most altro ciout transaction which happened on Monday the 5th intt. while Mr. Le Clair was at the Salmon River with tome chitft of the St. Regis tribe of Indians, and a gentleman to assist bun in collecting tba rents for Islands and other reservations within tie limits of lower Canada.' Four men, citizens of tbe United States, decoyed him out of the bouse at 10 o'clock F. al. under pratence of making a bargain about some cord wood ; at soon as they had got him near the train which they had prepared lor the purpose, he received a violent blow across the loins by a large square stick oi wood, ana at the same instant another or tne ruth ana struck him on tbe breast and knocked him down. They then seised him and threw him en tbe train, lumped oa bis body, stuffed a mitten in his mouth, and drove off out of Lower Canada towards the French Mills m the state of News York, one of the men standing on hit neck all the while.

During the late war between Great Britain and the United States, Mr. Le Clair was a lieutenant, and held some other confidential appointments in the Indian department; he was often employed ia hasardous enterprises, ana when gen.

Since Friday morning, 9th itist. the inhabitants of Stew, have been much as - itated with the apprehension that a murder was committed in that tnun, the night preceeuing. l ne circumstances which gave rise to the suspicion, are these : In the centre of the woods, (about a mile long) between Stow mills, and the tavern of eapt. Hill, on the morning of the 9th inst. a large quantity of blood was discovered about nine feet from a sleigh path, apparently as much as .would proceed from the killins of a hog i the snow about the blood was considera bly beat down with men' tracks, presenting the appearance of considerable struggling; but no other track whatever, could be discovered. Hie track led from this place, to a hemlock tree, eight or ten feet distant about the tree, tracks were very thick, as if one person followed another here considerable blood was discovered, and in it locks of a man's hair. From the foot of the tree, about the length of. a man, aii impression was maae ul tne tnow, at it something had fallen and at the end of this impression, blood was found, which had penetrated tliroujrh the snow into the frozen ground. About this time a stranger passed thro towardvWaterbury, in a sleigh, and before entering the woods, at eight in the evening, eeavored to hire a neraou to accomoanv him through i a the person could not conve niently go, the stranger passed on alone.

It was therefore that, by the orders of my government, I wrote to you on the subject With the fact which I have above stated before you, I aa wholly at a loss to imagine what kind of information the tribunal of admiralty can afford, which may regulate the decision of his majesty on the subject The tribunal cannot deny the existence of tbe proclamation ; it cannot show that the rjroclama - tioo is legal ; it cannot deny that American ves sels nave been taken under the proclamation : it cannot coolest the right of the American tro - vernment to demand the restitution of such v ca ll. .
