GOVERNOR'S SPEECH No. 5. Mr. Coleman. . . v. - I think tliat those who have duly reflected on the remarks contained in my last number, at weli mt thote who have not remd them, will be very far from betos persuaded, to rive up altogether the fobrict of other nations" even by the forcible CMskleratioas suggested by his eicellency via : that he who "adopts" them "is not only pay in taxes for the support of foreign governments, but that he participates in undermining one of the main pillars or his domestic industry." In deed, it is difficult, after due reflection on this subject; after considering that the character and habits of our people art decidedly commercial ; and that our commercial exchanges would be nearly at much affected by discontinuing the importation et all manntactureu articles, at by forbidding the exportation cf domestic produce tay, it it difficult, after duly pondering these mailers, 10 suppose inai nriviwy connaenng" the suggestions of bis excellency, will convert ut all into Chinosr, On political tubiocta must not expect to arrive at the certainty of the demonstrative sciences for the most part we are obliged to content ourselves with probability as to the result, tho' we may be tolerably well acquainted with the principles which produce it. Tho' it cannot be proved that the splendid consummation which hit excellency anticipates, will not be brought about by the contrivances which he has provided ; yet it is surely very im probable that it will But is it desirable.' Two rcaions for this policy are given. By adopting foreign fabrics, we pay taxes for the support of other governments and undermine a main pillar of domestic industry. Ho w do we pay taxes to other governments ? Many persons suppose that without our imposts on foreign manufactures it would be difficult to collect a sufficient revenue. It is a pretty common idea that the people pay direct taxes much lest cheerfully than thosu which are levied on them through the medium of an increased price of commodities and that three millions raited by the first mode, produce more complaint than twenty by the last. Every body knows exactly tiow we pay taxes on foreign manufactures to our own own government ; but the rub is to know how they make as pay taxes to foreign governments ? Possibly much may depend upon the mode, to much that it would have been worth while on account on account of tome members of the legislature to point it out. It appears to me that I have discovered the secret, and therefore am bound to publish it. ' The exportation of every foreign manufacture from the country where it is produced, entitles the exporter to e bounty from th government, or it does not It has been very common, by way of encouraging domestic manufactures, to pro hibit the exportation ot the raw material, and to pay bounties on the exportation of the manufac tured article. It has been the geueral policy of all commercial countries to encourage by draw backs, bounties, and otherwise, the exportation of every thing but the nectssaries of life. As to those foreign manufactures which receive a bonnty of any lort on exportation, it would not have been strange if his excellency had excepted them from liis general remark ; nor would it have been more strange than the remark itself, tho' certainly enough to, if he had accompanied it with a recommendation to confine our impor tations to such manufactures with a view of im - poreriiking foreign governments. Hut there are other foreign manufactures which dq not receive bounties on their exporta tion do not they make us pay taxes for the sup port ol foreign governments f 1 1 so, it is because they increase the wealth and improve the condi tioo of foreign nations, and thus enable them the better to support their governments. If this be an objection to our use ol foreign lanncs, it ousht to bo carried a great deal farther. It must banish not only our tea, coffee, wine, bran dy, silks, spices, Ic. but even those raw materials or articles slightly manufactured, without which our own manufactures must be riven up or discouraged, tucn as dye - stuns, iron, tie - This is not all, nor the worst we mutt export nothing for two rcasous one as good as that 1 am combatting, and one a great deal better. First onr exports, not only bread stuffs and like articles, but those which are the raw materials of foreign manufacture, improve the condition and increase the wealth of foreign nations, and thus contribute to the support of foreign governmentsSecond, our exportt pay direct taxes to foreign governments. If the indirect support a - bovemeulioned is injurious, this must be destructive. But what is to be done in case a foreign government taxes the exportation of its manufactures. This is not done by any com mercial nation to any tonnaerablt extent, except in regard to colonial productions, and to further the purposes of colonial polity. This policy it in itself to discouraging to commerce, and 'the consumption by ut of the commodities to which it extends, is, so far as any knowledge goet, to small that it hardly affects this qnestion. The constitution of the U. States regards duties on exports to injurious, that it has not thought pro per to fruit congress even wiin discretionary powers for sach a purpose. B ut there are small duties on the exportation of some Brilith menu Jaelwet from Europe. There are none on the I rench, and 1 know of none on similar exportt from aov other part of Eorope. The British du ty was first laid under a heavy war pressure, at one per cent, and was afterwards increated to three or four. This was a matter of necessity, and contrary to their general policy. It is, and ever mast be, uieir maniiest interest, to tarnish their manufac tures to the foreign consumer at the cheapest rate possible. Taking into consideration all the export duties on the foreign colonial mannfac turct which we consume, end the tlirht dutv a. bovementioned on British manufactures. I ask any reasonable man, whether the payment of woe in 10 foreign governments can for a moment be placed against the immense advantages which our own revenue gains by the impost! on their manufactures. The doctrine of bit excellency strike at the root u u commerce, l ne only possible fonts - dation oa which commerce can rest, k an ,. change of commodities mutually beneficent, or rairier wai ts commerce, instead ot being satisfied with sack restrictions anon the imnort. tion of foreign manufactures, as will en the whole be compensated to the country by the convenien - ciet te the rereaue, and by the encouragement thns afforded to domestic manufactures, we are desire! to look witi a jealous rye oa everything a iLltiiwe ionotinakeeunelvet - i' A trtSo 'war' known, excent with the Chinese, it lo be intro duced here, m( w which we ere fa tefl rer thing Mnd toy nuhtng.

It proceeds from pretty high authority, and seems to be without restriction. But tuppose we were above any thing bat purely solfuh Considerations, and those not more extensive than such considerations generally are ; of what advantage is this jealousy to ourselves I It it at much for the interest of every nation to have the wealth and prosperity of other nations increase with its own, at it it that of a merchant or manufacturer, to have the ability of bit customers increased. . la my next number I shall enquire whether there is any better foundation for the other oo - lectina of his excellency to the use of foreign fabrics, via. its) uodermitiinj one of the main pil lars nf oar domestic industry and I promise all those who have accompanied me thus far, and begin to grow weary, that I shall then take leave oi the subject. . , . . . , , ' u. FROM OUR CORRESPOXDEIfT. . Office of the Albany Daily Advertiser, ) , March t. The senate were engaged thetwhole of Saturday in committee of the whole upoo the bill entitled u an act relative to the banks, and for other parpotet." The bill was contested inch by inch The object of the first section it to prohibit all pertontfrom banking unless specially authorized by an act of the legislature. Three exceptions were proposed to this sec tion, and examined in their order the Exchange Bank in the city of New - York the Utica In surance Company, 'and the Catskill Aqueduct Association. In favor of the first, it was urged by Messrs. Cantine, Livingston, and Van Buren, that private banking not being prohibited by law, and the proprietor of that institution having commenced his operatiens with lawful authority, and conducted them with credit and ability, he ought to be exempted from the provisions of the bill. The exception was agreed to without a di vision. With regard to the other cases, a clause was added to the section declaring that their rights should not be abridged or enlarged by the operation ol tne bill. Upon the second section which goes to compel banks to redeem their bills in specie on demand, or to pay an increased rate ot interest an inter esting debate arose which was protracted until near the hour of adjournment, when the com mittee arose, reported progrea, and obtained leave to sit again. Messrs. Van vechten, Young, Koss, Bates and Livingston, spoke upon the sub ject. The council of revision have relumed to the senate the bill "for the relief of Eunice Chapman and for other purposes," with their objections to the same. Jy We stated the other day that we had introduced Eunice Chapman positively lor th last time this season." We believe, however, we shall be obliged to avail ourselves of the privilege assumed by vlayers of neadingtnetr bills with this promise for the last three weeks of the season. The objections of the council, (which we understand are from the pen of his honor Mr. Justice Piatt) are drawn up with distinguished a - bility. We shall publish them to - morrow, if possible. Mr. van Buren moved that tho objections of the lion, the council be printed. 1 his motion was opposed by Messrs. Bates and Young, who wished the question upon the final passage of the bill te be taken immediately ; as lliey were prepared to vote for the bill, the objections of the council to the contrary notwithstanding. Mestn. Van Buren. Bowne. and Ro. were m favor of printing;. ' . A short but spirited debate arose upon the motion of Mr. Van Buren. 'Mr. Young finally rose and stated that he was convinced of the propriety of printing the objections, and hoped the subject would be taken up at some future day, and acted upon with due deliberation. The motion for printing prevailed. LEO IS LA TVRE OFNEIV - YORK. HOUSE OF ASSE.VBLY February 27.

" Most excellent sir Yesterday afternoon I arrived in this town ; which, in consequence ef reports made current by the enemy, that wherever I came I atsasiinatcd'all bands without dis tinction of lex, I found deserted by its iuhaUl ants. On my arrival, my first object was to tranquilize the three or four pertone whom I nisi there and to convince them that ny irtentiot; were only to promote the welfare of the rood subjects of the king. I ordered them to the fields in order that they should acquaint the families, which were concealed there, with the good treatment they had received from his majesty's troops. This measure has had so favorable a result, that the town was this morning crowded with families, and a number of young men, who presented themselves to be enlisted in the army of the king. I do not entertain the least doubt but the chief part of the inhabitants of this town are ad dicted to our sovereign, and that they pant fer tne moment or being set free irom the yoke of the rebel Koodoo."

An official dispatch has been received from Oran, dated the 26th of last month, by which it appears that the plague continues to desolate Bona and Constantino, and that it still raget in Algiers where the number of deaths amounts to 30 a day. We are particularly sorry to add, that this dreadful disease has spread to the towns of Blida, Media and Mina, all of tbem situated to the westward of Algiers, and the last within 25 leagues onlyof Oran, no fewer than 10 individuals being daily carried off in each of those places. In consequence of this unpleasant intelligence, and the malady being expected shortly to extend to Oran (if even it does not already exist there) the measures of precaution will be enforced with increased rigor in this port. The dispatch further confirms the intelligence of the Dejr of Algiers having withdrawn to the citadel of Catpa, and ascribes this determination to the many plots framed by the Janissaries a - gainst his life. The Dey hat also dismissed the Turkish soldiers who composed his guard, and black troops are now doing duty about bis person. About a month before the date of the dispatch, the Bey of Oran bad been strangled, the second in command thrown intn confinement, and all the principal officers changed. The new Bey, a Turk of the name of Cassan, arrived at Oran from Algiers on the 6th of December, with a retinue of about 3000 persons. Twelve of bit soldiers had died of the plague on the road. The Algerine squadron which had gone to sea on the 28th of September with the plague on board, returned to Algiers on the 19th November, and the ships were immediately laid up.
