It is posterity, however, who will do bis t , memory ample joatice, and equally ample justice to ha calumniator and persecutor. The bodies of the two unfortunate youths, (saya the Waabington City Gazette of Feb. 7.) mentioned in our paper of the 3d instant, were , thia morning found a little east of Van Ness' wharf, and about 25 yards from the shore. The eldest, Mr. Tenniaon'a son, had brenskaiting; and the grandson of J. 3. Attor had accompa uied him for the purpose of sliding. The ice drove so forcibly into the cast river with the flood - tide and wind this morning, a ' completely to obstruct it, and render the situation of maay of the vessels at the docks perilous. The tchr. Louisa tl Mary, Philips, with a cargo of salt, bound to Edentoo, N.

" You will probably v'uh to know what ent me here t I will inform jou, and by so doin, jrive an account of ten of the most miserable days of my life. We took the Patriot privateer Comroodore Champlm, with the Sarina Gu'aneaman, her px iae we were onlcml on board the privateer, and sailed under convoy f the brig Proraethiua and schr. Lynx.

Daily Advertiter, published m Philadelphia, an account of a circumstance said to have occurred at the Sweet Springs, in Virginia, prior to the nvnlntUnsr war. which reflects mat honor oa the then colonel Washington, as a man of feel ing, I will thank yoa to give the following anecdote efnoaral Hamilton a pVaca in your valu able column, which a it came within my own knowledge, does not rest for 1U authenticity up - As soon a it wa generally known that Phila delphia bad become the seat of government, a great Dernber of the soldiers who had served in the revolutionary annv. flocked to that city some to spdIv for pensions, others for arrears of par. but all of them destitute of monev : and a it wa aunposed that the buildiur occupied by the treasury department was the depository of the pubUc funds, the doors were frequently besieged by that meritorious claa of men. I do not know what success their applications met wun from other persons t but the rule prescribed by gen. tlamdtcn lor his own government was uxs ir the applicant appeared atic to wore, ne gave him two dollar for present subsistence j if be shewed a wound, he received five dollars ; and if he lost a lef or an arm, ten dollar. In this manner did that benevolent man evince hi re gard for the soldier who had fought and bled to establish the liberties of their country ; and when bis own funds were exhausted, it was bis costant practice to come into the rooms occupied bv the clerks, and borrow from everv one who had a dollar to lend I .4 Iter general Hamilton bad resigned, and was on the point ox leaving rtuiaueiprua, ne placed ia my hands a number of notes for collection, un der a strict injunction, not to apply to the parties for pavment To relieve my brother offi cers, in the revolutionary war, said he, I have incurred a debt, to discharge which, 1 shall be under the necewity of selling my house in N.

After a considerable lapse of time, the note were all paid, and I bave in my possession, the general's letter acknowledging the receipt of the amount. Among the very few enjoyments that remain to me, at my advanced period of life, there is none which affords me so much pleasure as to observe, that the opinion which during the prevalence of party spirit, had been entertained to the prejudice of that honest and enlightened statesman, are undergoing a rapid change in his favor. In fact, it is not long since, that one of his most determined opponents acknowleOgea to me, that upon a dispassionate review or general Hamilton's public measurer, he was convinced that he had done him great injustice. , The ttanJard muster of the U. S. The other day, whilst examining the muskets adopted by the different nations of Europe, as their standstill for tho army, I was led to compare them with that of the U. a. The companion wa de cidedly in favor of this country, in point of work - mamhip. ' But there appeared still some very material objections to the one now in use t and which I do not believe that excellent enguieer, col. Bomford, had any hand in recommending. I. The gun weighs 11 lbs. and it ought only to weigh about 9 1 - 2 lbs. ; for it would be equally rtronf. t. The handle of the stock is too short and thick, which prevent a proper purchase m pull - kqr the trirrer. 3. The handle and forepart of the stock is too stout, and the toe of the butt of the stock is not sufficiently deep ; which destroys the balance of the musket, and cause it to recoil more yj put on wiin screws, wntcn is not ro rood a a solid pan made of iron and case - hardened, the brats being more liable to corrode. The pan is also placed in a slopinr direction, which causes the principal part of the fire to fall oa the joint of tnenammer, . S. The barrel should be two Inches shorter. and the biyonet two inches longer, which would rcnucr it more nanuy and improve the balance. 6. The lock is one inch loo long, which cause the drop of the stock to extend too far back, and shorten the space between the crown piece and como. t 7. The butt of the slock is too short : which causes the arm to be too much contracted when levelling; the piece. 8. 1 he muskets would be considerably cheap er. Theo objections are made with no other lew than to improve the standard musket of the United States. AoJ the writer of this article is ready to satisfy any person invented with proper suuionij io exaonue in to me trutn ol these re marks. Congress would do well to make inquiry iuto this subject, as the interest of the country is ueepiy concaroeu io it. OLD WAD. ADDITION. ... . . ... n e nave onserveu wiin much pain many thousands of stands of muskets, in the different arsenal of the United States, all subject to the sane objections here so perspicuously pointed out and, with deep regret, we bare seen, in our public laboratories, that the plan of manufactur ing muskets, liable to all these objections, is still penlited in, and all the lights afforded by expo rience entirely dirrcgarded.

SO, LATE AND IMPORTANT, (omciit) Copy of a letter from Maj. Gen. Gaines, to the Governor of this (tate, received hit night by express. If cad - Quarters, Hartford, ) (Geo.) Jan 23, 1818. ) Sir Bv a letter iust now received from brig, 'en. Glascock, I am informed, that a party of Indian concealed in the iwamp of Cedar creek, 7 miles east of Flint river, yesterday morning, fired upon and killed Mr. Thomas Leigh, assist ant waggon - master, ana aamuei ioiiera,oi captain Avera's company of Georgia militia. The waggon - master had been sent out with a small party of men and a drove of pack - horses, laden with provisions ; which by a prompt and judicious arrangement on the part of major Heard, were secured, with the residue of the party and bone. Gen. Glascock immediately ordered out a detachment under major Morgan, in pursuit of the Indians. - By a letter from col. ArbucUe, of the 18th inst. I learn, that the Indians were to assemble near the mouth of Flint on the 2 1 st, for the purpose of concerting measures for the destruction of the inhabitants on the Chatahoocbie, and the redaction of Fort Scott. The latter they calculated upon starving out. Fort Gaidfes it was apprehended would be attacked. One of the inhabitants (Mr. Weaver) had been killed near the Fort ; a bouse had been burnt, and some o - ther property destroyed. The detachment and vessels under maj. Muh - lenbargh, with military stores, arrived at Fort Scott without any material low, other than that mentioned in my last, although incessantly annoyed by a very large force from each shore, Irom the 15th to the Uth of December. A supply of provisions, ordered in November last, bad not reached the Appaiachicola at the date of col. Arbuckle's letter, (the 18th inst) The troops were then without meat, but had eneared near ly one month's supply upon the Cbattahoochie, part of which left Fort Gaines under a strong guard on the 16th. The sapply of floor at Fort Scott is sufficient, allowing full rations of that article for the troops there, until the middle of next month t and the arrival of sixty thousand rations from New - Orleans is daily expected ; and even should this supply fail, I bave not a doubt of baring a competent supply sent down the Flint and Chattahoochie, m time to prevent the troops from sufferinc. I bave been thus particular in communicating to yonr excellency the state of our supplies, as well as the movement ot me enemy, irom an impression, that a knowledge or these subjects ould be acceptable to you, and beneficial to the state over which you preside at well as from a wish to draw from you, a free communication of your views and wishes, upon whatever relates To the public service, connected with my command. I bave seen in the newspapers, with equal sur prise and indignation, the attempts that bave been made to lull the public mind into a belief. that the hostile Indians desire peace and are wilting to lay down their arms ! Sir, there will be no peace until those Italians are severely chastised. The chiefs were required to surrender the offender ! It was deliberately, resolved in a larre council 01 the Seminole and " Red Sticks" at Mickasukee, that the offenders should neither be punished nor surrendered, Some of their chief bave triumphantly assert ed, that we cannot beat them I that hWtfld 2hYsiT"lh7eoioas they know lit - tl or nothing of the strength or resources of our vvHiiuj uu wiwufcr suionnauoo uiev nave usnvca irom weir wniie inenas (Bnlun oincert and traders) could have no tendency to give mem ravoranie impression towards us. They nun oe ueaien oeiora we can reasonably calcu late upon peace. It is well known that seven of our citizens were killed by those Indians iu the two years im mediately succeeding the late war with Ens - land. Their chiefs admitted this, aod that among the numoer was a woman and two children (Mrs Garrett of this state.) The principal chie Capichimiro, is notifying the warriors of the resolution of tbe chiefs in council, added that, " the day never should come when be would give op or punish a red man for killing a white man." These facts have been communicated to me by Indians, and through in terpreters who I believe to be men of truth nor have I a doubt but t!ite fact were well known to those philanthropic writer of peace, who have had the sagacity to discover, that hostilities were commenced by the troop under my command, on the 20th November last; and that we are tne aggressoRi. It is not aa act of war, according to this doc - trine, to manacre and scalp seven unoffending person?, ami among mem a woman and Iter infants! What number then, I would ask, the massacre of which would constitute an act of war f Sir, my own humble impressions a dob this sub ject are, that the wanton massacre of an in rant not yet able to lisp the enviable declaration of "I am an American citizen," should be as promptly avenged as if fifty or fifty Utousaad ci tizens bad been m usacred. When reparation is refused by the nation (whether red or white, civilized savage) to whom the offenders belong iae uauon lueu occomes accounuolc, and should be chastised for tbe outran. I have little confidence in the cxnectalion of obtaining any considerable aid from the friendly I f a a n .a . ... J uumns; even snouia me y join me, the las ol uieir enters may induce them to follow the ex ample of the warriors under Perrymay, and go over io uie enemy ; ana i owe it to mysclTand to the public service to apprise you. of the exist - ence of a spirit of opposition, tendineto counter act my efforts, having recently manifested itself! in what ts deemed to be the friendly put of the Creek nation j originating, as I have reason to beheve, with some evil deposed white perrons. actually engaged in murglisg negroes into the - niieq siaies irom zast - r lorida. .9 considerable number, as i am credibly informed and be lieve, have been taken to the immediate vicinitv of the Creek agency. It rests with tht agent to aeieci or cxpiaui i on apparent vmlalion of law. The movement of the troops and the active and general hostility of the Indian near the Florida line, will bave a stronr tendency to render this abomioabl traSc difficult and perilous; hence expect to be honored with the ill - will of everv I have the honor to be, very rerpectfully, your oocuieoi servanu EDMUND P.
