AWYsrt Dcilv Adoertiser, Fib. ; Treasury Report.

And, it may be said, that the general opinion ia, that the duties are as high at they" can be safely raised, when the inducement! to smuggling are const - ' dered, and the facilitiee which the country presents for the coamisuou of that debesitg and de - teetable offence against Um lawi of morality, ai well ai of the V. ml for aa the inducement to muggling grows out of the high rate of duties, it b perfectly dear that the temptation gains ttrengta exactly in proporuou u we ww increased, and it lessened precisely m the tame tame at Ihe duties are aumnuoea. in uus view of the subject, we cannot resist the conclusion, that the preambln speaks the plain and proper object of the report to. to secure, a - gainst Imposition and fraud, toe coueciion we duties. It must then, we think, sicite some surprise, that in proposing a scheme toaccomplieb this object the secretary should, m net, propose a rate of duties which will not only raise them, but raise tnem, on many arucies, 10 oouuie, ana 1 cren to lire timet the present amount. Another instance in which we think the Secretary bat mistaken bis object, or at least, has shown a want of sound judirement, will be found in the recommendation to en crease the Urifl'of specific duties. Where articles of the tame kind rary but little in quality and ralue as coffee, sugar, fee. or where they are uscepU - clMsificat km of qualitiea, as the different kinds of spirits, wine, teas, fee. it ia undoubtedly a wise course to affix to tJietn specific dnties. But, surely, it cannot be to considered with regard to a regulation, or proposition, which imposes the same specific duty, as in the case of fowling - pieces, on an article which costs three dollars and thirty - three cents, and one which coits nearly tweuty times that sua. " Nor cn that be rie wed ai a patriotic measure, which goes to lessen the duty, and thereby to discharge domestic manufactures, of articles necessary for the defence of the country. Almost the ouly articles specified, on which the duties art not raised, are rifle and muskels. We cannot but think that the manufacture of these sr - - tides ou?ht to be encoorared rather than dis couraged b our rovtrnmen' for surelv it can not for a moment oe admitted, that we are to re ly on another country for those arms which are indispensably necessary for the protection and se - curitr of our own. An essential deviation from the principles of ne Mwwr rwcuuv iawv, uiu rc cu vu iu proposed tarUf, Formerly it was thought good Dolicr to discriminate in favor of article princi pally used in the new and less wealthy parts of the country. Accoruiugiy anvus, vices, iocks, liinres. boas, fee. paid 2 1 - 2 per cent lest duty. than other hardware goods. By the last tariff this discrimination was abolished, and all inch articles were eubjected to the same rate of duty as other goods. We cannot bat think tbeinha bitants of the newly settled parts of the country wiUcomidsr themselves hardly treated, when they learn that the implements of husbandry and I m i I . - 1 1 I lOOIB Ol gwnwnw I wm Tim IW uawionv, sasrs, fowliag and hunting pieces, articles of first necessity to them, have been selected as'objects of enormous duties.

WeDWESDAY, FEBRUARY 11. 7raatiry Repmrt We recommend to particu lar notice the excellent article on this state pa per, which we this evening republish from Um New - York Daily Advertiser. The editor has devoted to his subject a laborious and patient in vestigation, and has, (as he always does,) placed bis remarkt in a lucid and striking point aview. A bill bat passed the Legislature of Penn sylvania and only wants the signature of the Governor to become a law, that the namber of passengers on board any merchant vessel arriving in the port of Philadelphia shall not exceed more than ene to every rwe tons ef said vessel. The Bouse, of Representatives of Pennsylvania, have also reported a BUI for the relief of William Cobbett The legislature of New - Jersey, now in Ses sion at Trenton, have pasted aa act to authorise the establishment of a Bank at the city of Jersey. The editor of the Commercial Advertiser, (I beg pardon of my readers for again introducing him.) reljing upon the impunity implied by my having taken leave ef him ia Monday's paper, has once mora ventured forth and replied m his oMalstiM of despicable prevarication. I mean aot to add another syllable respecting the origi nal ditputt, but leave it to every one, who thinks it worth his attention, to form bis own opinion. But one assertion demanus particular notice : be says, I have trimmed and garbled a quotation to suit my purpose. I answer if by this be means to say, as the words import, that have curtailed and separated one part of a sen tence or paragraph from Um rest so as to alter the sense, to suit my purpose, 1 tell him to his teeth it b a falsehood a wilful, malicious, rank falsehood t and for the justice ef this reproach, I refer him to the small, $011 wire of hit owa ceoscieoce. Sunday - School Concert l will be seen by aa advertimmeot in our paper, that this evening a concert of sacred aasic is to be tireo at 8t George's Church, under the direction of Messrs. Morse, Eage and Earle. The majority ef citi zens, whatever may be said, will, after all, be influenced by a regard to their own gralincatioB on men occasions, rather than by any vmwi of a public nature ; but, y et, there are some who act from motives ef a duty. To inch, then, wt beg permission to say, that the present opportu nity afibrdt one of Um most pressing that ever of fers, to induce the benevolent to countenance and encourage it. To those who seek their own laudable gratification, we venture to say, that Um selections of music, as appears from Um bill, are made with as much taste and judgment as we recollect ever to hare seen oa a similar occa - The ship Telegraph, Caiwell, from this port for Charleston, auchored on Um 2d hut in Five Fathom Hole, where she parted her cables in the gale, and was driven ashore upon SuUivan'i Island, but was expected to be got off next day, without damage.

Tbe bodies of the two unfortunate youUu which bad been missing since Afonday evening last, were yesterday discovered under the ice in the Tyber, about thirty yards from the shore one of them was the only ron of Adrian Benjamin Ben lien, Esq. governor general and com - mauder in chief of all the Islands belongiog to his Danish majesty in the West Indies, and had ouly a fow days before accompanied bis erand 'atber, Jolin Jacob Astor, Esq. to this place; the other was a son of Mr. Ten niton of this city There has scarcely been witnessed a greater degree of solicitude than was evinced on this mournful occasion. Every clam of our follow citizens seemed to participate In Um Mfiliction which the untimely fate of these promising youths had produced The funeral procession was attended by Use family of Um president, Ihe secre tary of state, Um speaker of the house of re presentatives, many members of both bouses ot coogress, foreign ministers, the commissioners of the navy - board, many officers of the army and na7, and an immense concourse of citiitns. Tbe funeral solemnities were performed in a most impressive manner by the Eerd. Mr. Haw ley. We understand that Mr. Astor intend to con vey the body of hit grand son to this city Extract of m Utter from London, by the hut or rival. 44 In the theatrical world, the principal inci dents are, that Mr. Keao it just recovering from a long and severe illness, and makes his appear ance shortly, but with what success it is difficult to pronounce.

SIR Throush the medium of your widely circulating paper, I beg permission to submit to public consideratton tbe particulars oi a new u - r en Don, wtucn i caii roe - .engBois ivy Boat.1 This contrivani will, I flatter myself, SDDear of national importance, inasmuch as it will assist Um intercourse between, and there fore in effect bring nearer together, the remotest nerta of this treat country. M v clan is to construct single or double rafts of squared and round umDeriogs, maaiog uiem of such forms as sliaU be best adapted to easy Drorrets throurh water. These are to be put in motion by water - wheels with perpendicular paddles, operating wilnin a guuer or race - way, at ia mills. The water - wheel is to be moved by steam or animal power, as may be most convenient ( but I am of opiuion that animal power will, in most instances, be preferable to steam, and have discovered a method by which the draught of horses may be applied in a straight line, with the utmost economy and simplicity, and without a tingle cog - wbed ; thereby avoiding much friction, saving a grsattosce, obviating the incon venience of tne circular erecuoni nereiowre placed upon decks of bone - beats, and bringing the strength of Um. animals employed into operation ia the most advantageous manner. I find that in most of the steam anu norse - boats hitherto constructed, half, and often more than half, the power employed, w expended, and to every useful purpose toil, in oppoiingtht perpendicular resiitance of back - water, and from uie escape of water on each aide and beneath the float - boards at they impinge. The first b avoided bv the wheel with unrirfat paddles; Uie se cond by Uie raceway ind tbe conjunction of these inventions lenders tbe power eu board very nearly at advantageous at when applied in tewing from Um land. , On the canals in England, barges carrying w tons are drawn 5 miles per hour by one bone throurh still water why then should not an e - qua power, if properly applied, produce nearly an equal result when employed on board i I am conscious it can never do quite so much, because it is impossible to prevent Um escape o.r water about the paddlee entirely, but a very near approximation may be obtained. navurable tuft - Boats ana tneir machinery may be constructed of various dimensions, and at one - fourth Uie expence of ordinary horse - boats. They may be moved with rapidity by one or more horses or oxen according to thoir size They will be advantageous for ferries, and the conveyance of passenren, merchandise of all kinds, and agricultural produce stores and a - parunents may be erected upon tnem, and subline for relay horses. Tney may be used in numberless instances, where Uie heavy expences of steam - boats and horsc - borts are insupportable. They will avoid the inconveniences of leakage and repairs they may travel in the shallowest waters, and will be more safe than any hollow vessel can poniuiy De. I am, sir, your very obedient servant, C. A. BUSBY. 2, Law Buddiugf. Febll P. S. A model ofthe Navigable Raft - Boat is prepared for Uie inspection of those who take in terest in Uie subject.

C. C. Claiborne, deceased A melancholy accident happened ia this place on Afooday evening the 2d instant, which has excited great interest, from the peculiar circuit stance attending it. The eldest too of Mr. Tennison, of this city, aged about 17 years and a youth by the name of John Jacob Bentocn, (grandson of John Jacob Astor, esq. now on a visit here) aged about it years, disappeared They were traced to the mouih of Uie Tyber, where it appears they went late in Uie afternoon, not long before dark, and to a place where it was supposed one or both of them had put on skates. But as, on diligent search, nothing could be discovered of their bodies, it was hoped for some days that they had gone off on a boyuh freak, and would toon be restored to their afflicted relatives This painful suspense, however, was terminated oa Saturday morning about deven o'clock, by Uie discovery of their bodies, by one of tbe persons employed to search for them, a short distance east of Van Ness't wharf, at a distance not more than 20 or 30 yards from Uie thoiu. Oue of them had bis hands fastened in the other's sur - tout coat : the ice must, have riven way with them, and the cold prevented them from extri cating themselves, no one having been within sight to assist them, or give notice of weir fate Let 111 is add one to tbe warnings, so often re pea ted, of Uie danger of the practice of skaiting, particularly in this pert cf our country, where, from the capricsousaess of our seasons, no reli ance can be placed oa Uie strength ofthe ice for lour and twenty hours together. From the National Advocate, A singular circumstance lately occurred in this city, which should serve as a caution to strange females wnoemigraU here for the pur pose of going to service. A Toung girl arrived irons the country in one of the sloops which na vigate our riven with a view ef retUn? a place, While the sloop remained in the river Uie rirl continued on board, but wheo about departing sne too ner trunk ana causa a porter, and requested him to show her a place where she could procure lodgings. The porter took her to a house of ill fame, and, in the course of the night, the girl discovering where she was, made her escape, Icav mg ner trunk behind her. A stran rcr in Uie dty, she wandered about, baif dis tracted, during one of the most iudement nights, without shelter t and Deing attracted by a lirht which was tiorning in an uonnished place of wor ship, where the workmen were watching Um ares used to dry uie want, she entered, and beg. ed permission to rest on the sbavi."!. Her si tuation and story, added to an baocent appear ance, awakened an interest in the workmen, whe Um next day procured ner a respectable place at service and recovered her effects. There are, doubtless, many rfllainoui practices UfcJ to j .. - i - lure the unsuspicious icto places oTinfaay i Uiey would be watched, and Um culprits punished oa detection.' - ; k ' - v ' ' ; r ' inm lh Hartford Co.

Si a The interesting communication from the Secretary of your Institution to the President ofthe Hibernian Provident Society, dated 8tli December last, has been laid before that body, and by them referred to their commit tee of correspondence the committee hare given to that communication the most respect nil attention, and with confidence assure you of the great solicitude which tbe Hibernian Provident Society dways feel in the success of every measure' calculated to aid or comfort Uie emigrant stranger, particularly emigrants fiom Ireland, who, from persecution or at tachment to the cause of Freedom, seek an as ylum in tliis happy land j in the pursuit of that object, an object which this society has never lost sight of from its first institution, now nearly seventeen years ago, they have found it most congenial with tlie general interest, to act upon the enlarged and liberal ground of embracing the friends of liberty from every clime, in order that their feelings and interest should be identified, and their energies conso. .dated with the great cause of freedom in this rising republic. With you we sre happy to recognise the gcneroi'S interest which an "en lightened public" have always taken in the welfare of the deserving emigrant, and it will no doubt approbate any measures calculated to promote arid secure his happiness, consistent with public utditv ; but it may be fairly ques tioned how far that " enlightened public" would approbate congress in granting public lands to Irish Emigrants on terms more favourable than to their own citizens ; and if such a grant could be obtained, it might still be doubtful whether tbe babits of Irishmen lately arrived, are well calculated to undertake the cultivation of Uie wilderness, a work so uncongenial Willi their former pursits, and at so vast a distance from all those endearing associations on which their consolation and comfort depend, most especially when in the long, fatiguing and expensive journey to that distant wilderness, they must pass numerous tracts or tine land waiting for and inviting cultivators indeed, in the great, fertile and a salt a r state in which we live, as weU as in Pennsylvania, there it still abundance of Uie best lauds, whose proprietors are eagerly seeking for settlers and ottering them terms the mote favorable and should the services of these men be ever wanted in the public cause, it will sore ly lie as congenial with Irish feelrogs to present a barrier agsuwt pViUsn u agaUni ..a aa i 1L.
