F.W.IoliK ErEffLKQ POST. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11. " ftr Ihe film - fork turning Pott. "' GOVERNOR'S BPEECH - No, 6 ti LtuL Mr. Coleman, ' I bay stated my doubts of th juttnett of hit excellency' urn objection t tbe um of to - . rettra manufactures, viz : that it " it paying lax . tt for th rapport of foreign governments," and bar given the reason of snv doubt. Tbe second objection, that he who adopt the fabric of ot tier nation, participate in undermining on of the main pillar of our domestic industry," twaiaim to be considered. I do not lorgei, " that I am Indebted to your courtesy for room, which might be better occupied, and, therefore, I hare no tun lor details. I mutt leave ail ine Wiistratioos which wight be derived rom coon - daring the eilin profutou lor we enaurg - meat of cor manufactures, to be Ujeited by the good ene of my reader. The great o) tiou I hare to tbe auertiou of hi excellency i tbatitUtooiweepingtobetroe. W ihould not hare expected to bear a oe - nied that in estimating Hi expedJency of eocour - ajinr manufacture in preference to agriculture, i wnM consideration i due to the producuveue of labor in eoe or the otherof hee eaiploymen ; and eom regard a to be bad (o thetrcueral tate of the country. I mention agriculture a the competitor of manufacture for the patronage of mrernment : there it in fact no other. All com merce which i not u)ported by the one it maintained by the other. There are certain general principle relating to Uii subject, about which most or ui would a tree I the difficulty lie in their application. It teems cleir that it i a primary object to render the country entirely independent :u re gird to article of necessity, and those required lor difenee. Tbi U a very popular topic, and juitljr to, bat let it not be preued beyond it rigtitfiil Douimh. Aructet 01 necessity are ukjc - which are Ant manufactured in every country there are none worth tpeaking of with which we have not tdfbcient meant for tuppiying ourteivi Within a hort period a any circumt:ne will require. A to those for d'fence, w ought doubt leta to be a independent in regard to their ' (apply, a w once made ourtelvei by tneir us. Putting aside Ihe? two classes of manufacture, which do not enter into the head of those who art meet active and wxt iutereited at this moment In thi tubjectj I ihould lay it down a proportion unirerjally true, with the exception hereafter mentioned, that it it for the Miter - eft of the whole community to allow each individual, uninfluenced by artificial embarrassments, or encouragement, to teek ucb employment a hi interest dictate. Thai under the nilluence Of unrestrained an 1 universal competition, each individual endeavoring to do that which i best for himself out only in the employment of hi own labor, hut of that of every other individual, the gr. - atrst aggregate of wealth nod prosperity Biut be produced. The exception to thi are two. It hat heroine the rooted policy of ether Datum to discourage the trade and manufacturer of each other, by variout prohibition and penalties; and to force an unnatural growth of theii own, not only by those prohibitions, hut by boun tie, premiums, Ac. This i nothing else but the government's telling th people what it in beat for each one of them to do. Now, however unwise this .ny he, apd it hat been always deplored by eouii'l Uteimu, to long a thingi remain In tbi condition, we are obliged In telf - defcrice to coDnteract the provision, and urolect ourtelvei by similar measures. But if this policy be on wise in itself, by going one step beyond the limit of counteraction and d - fence, wo must in jure ourlves i it i ea - y for men practl ally ac quainted with thi aubject to diicorer where the limit are. It may surprise tome men, to And that I am supported iu my general proposition above stated, by the authority of the man who understood this tuhrrct better than any o ther person, and who was a tralou friend ol manufactures. If, says Hamilton, In hi cele brated report on manufacture, "thesyrm f ferfut lunrty to industry and eotnmcrec, were the ftrtuiling lytttin of nations, the arguments which dissuade a country in the predicament ot th United States from th zealous pursuit ofma - nnfUriuritft. wnulil donhllniu hava rreat forr. It will not be affirmed that they might not be permitted with few exception, to serve a rule of natumat conduct " I he two principal argu - meal to which Hamilton referred, were that de rived from the effect of competition, and that from the territory and toil of th United Slates The second exception to the universality of the aropntition above stated, it to he found in the fa ciliti for tuppiying the national revenue thro1 the medium of imposts. The extent of encour agement thus given indirectly to our own manu fact uret, must be limited to the necessities of the government, and th encouragement itself will im ipvtn wiui uui rcnru ui uio warns aou coil ditionol the country. Due respect should be had to those fundamen tal principles ; and thtre are tome strong - consi derations to shew that the government ought to keep strictly within their limits. 1 he consuni ers of manufacture who are not tmmufjelurtrt Ihenuelces, are a numerous and important class of the community, whose interests, to say nothing of their rights, deserve notice. But in truth, the manufacturer themselves, to the whole ex teutol all they contume, are as much interested a any body else in confining prohibitions, dutiex, bounties, be. within reasonable limit. Considering the extreme division of labour, they may lose more at consumer than they gaiu a manulactuter. Tony that we will make every thing we use, at home, would be as wise a foi each farmer to make every thing in his own hous. lu young countries the division of labour cannot profitably be ro minute as as in old ones. Contft'joently to'iio very fine fabric, or those of Winch jri - eat quantities are njt wanted, cannot b mid to advantage. It mar well be greater cheapness of la bourapd accjmulnlion of capital abroad will, i.i many instance, enable us to get what w waul more advantageously there than weposibly can at borne.

I with yea to publish the following, the great er part of which cam under my own immediate observation. On Monday the 2d March the ice in the Sus quehanna river broke up and began to move. hat iiortion ol it which lay below the Mary land line paxrd off into the Bay without dome the smallest injury : but on Monday met the river bejau to rise, and continued rising U next diy and the day following with aston. - ning rapi dity. 1 he night or the descending water was gr attr than ever before known by the oldest inhabitants of the place. The ice floated in vast quantities and twept with destructive ravages a) most every thing before it. Una of the finest piece of architecture of the kind in America, perbapt in the world, ' was totally destroyed by the water and it . The beautiful bridge buill by Theodore Burr over the fiiisquthanua, at MWl's rcrry, and hut lately finished, was on I in nlay evening cnmplcti ly demolished. In that narrow part of the river, confined by high aud rocky banks, the w iter and ire rose tn an unnrecidi tiled height, said to lie nearly eighty feet perpendicular. The bridge did not move till the' ice begin to shoot over the lop of the roof, when born upwards off the abutments aud pier it wits carried With irresistible force down the current. One of the arches entire lodged on an Mind near lV.ich - bottioi ferry ; the otlv about II or 12 o'clock oa Tuesday night passed undur one of the arches of Koclc - run bndj;', and now lie on the Flats below Havre do Grace. Marks of con. - iderahle violence appear on that arch undnr which the wreck passed, but no in jury was dune to the suptrstru''tura. In passing under the arch the fragment of M'Call's brid 'e struck on the ice breaker of Rock - run bridge in a lateial direction, and drove out a quantity of tton from the side wail, which was the oulv damage the Km k - ruo bridge (Ustained. The canal ha suffered heavy damages. Houics, cattle and an immense quantity of lumber passed down the river with the ice. The total damage tustainid by companies aud individuals from the breaking up of tho fcusquo hanna this season can not yet be ascertained ; it will, no doubt, be fouud to be astonishingly great, From the .Vatiotial Intelligencer, Melt. 7. It hi .pears from the communication transmit ted by the Governor of South - Carolina to tht President, and by him laid before tha Homo oi Representatives, that an amendment to the Con titution, pascd by two - thirds of both Houses ol Cungrcst, ond it was supiioic I ronrured in by the requisite majority of the state, was not in fact Concurred in. but was r ii - ctecl tv the Stale nf South - Cnrolinn, who hadbeen supposed to nave rnuneil it, and mat without her vote, the propositi in did not receive the annrtinn nf tiv.i thirds ol the stud s. The amendment referred to hat been printed with the late editions, as a part of the Constitution, and in the following w rds : ' Kesotved, by the Senate and llonto or Kip nrtentntivet iftfir. United State of Annricn. in Congress nssrinhkd, two - thirds of both Houses concurring, that the Inlawing section I'l'mut - ltd to the l - ici - laturesol 'the s tt ite, nlm I when rs'ili d hy the ligj.lature ol tliten - lourths ol the slates, shall lie vahn and I'liuling as a part ol the constitution ol me united btatts ii nnr cilisen of the Unilnd Slnte shall accept, claim, receive or retain any title nl nolnlity or honor, or shall, without the content nf Congress, accept and retain any present, iensnn, omen or rqin luincnt, nf any kind whatever, Irvin any empo ror, king, prince, or foreign Hwer, suh person diall ceae to be a cituen of the Undid Ma'es, and shall be iucnjmhle of hoUline any ollice ol trmt or profit under Hum or cither ol them." It ought to be generallv known, as it is now asci rrsio d, that litis amendment was not ratified by three - fourths of the state, and therefore it not a part of the constitution. From tlie Js'orfolk Bracm. nncxisic occcmumck. To the sympathy whii b wc yesterday expressed in the bereavement nf an amiahle lamili, nllu lid hv thi death of Mr. William M.

From tlie rf'citchetter Herald of March 10, Croton ritcr Tha rapid thaw ou Saturday the 211th ult. and the succeeding day, attended with heavy rain, occasioned the Croton river to rise tn a considerable height, and floated down ponderous shoal of ice. Among the disaster it h:u occasioned, we have to regret the damage done to the two merchant mills owned by uen. Coitlandt, lit iated on that river. One of them was removed some feet from it bate, the water wheel destroyed, and tome hundred of barrels stove in ; the floor on the second story was carried away, and upwards of one thousand bushel ol leed destroyed. A law - mill on the tame race way was also twept away. The other mill, we are happy to learn, received but little damage I he whole loss is estimated at upwards ol $3000.
