I be first document u as follow, : Extra t of a letter from Mr. Monroe, secretary of - tate, ta Mr. Piukney, special minister u, Naples, dated Dt; - artnut of tu, w,r 1816. " - . M being aponintd he Ihe president, Witn we advice aod content ol the senate, envoy rrof" dinarv aod miuister pleniiteutiary to tbe ess nerur of Riiss'a. aud. in a similar trust, to tbe Meg of Naples, theduliesof the Utter . tm - noo, h,rh m ainw iai. anil ens - are sour aueninm u the first instance. 1 he Washuigton, a snip ci ihm line, is ordered into tbe Cbeiapeake, lo re ceive 00 board, and to txmvey yosi and your family to Naples. You will be faroi'hed with the B,uaJ comiaiMoa and letter of credence to the A pr ocipM onject of your aa - nm t f - r' ia Main iiHleuuiitv mr the losses whir h our citixens sustained by tbe illegal ' re awl coa - iscatssa of their pioperty by the Neapolitan gov - . - bi erumeut. You will be Ltrnbed with soth evidence in tupiiort of ihe claim, as is In possess mo of this department, aud as notice ha been given to the collector of the principal cities of your appointment and its object, that (t might be rom niuiuiated lo the parties tuterested, its expected that ou will receive much further light on the subject directly fiom them. I tie president does not entertain I doubt ot Uie right ol the United State, to a full indemni ty of those lone. They were iu dieted by the then government of the country, without the slightest cause. The commerce of the United States was invited into the Neapolitan porta by special decree, will) the promiH of protection and encouragement, on the faith of which, many ship having eutercd with valuable cargoes, the whole amount was seized by the government itself, and couverted lo public use. For this very extraordinary and unlawful act, no plea has been urged that we have heard of, except that of necessity, which is no argument against iodemnity. The injury being inflicted by a government so full possession ol Ike sovereignty of the country. exercising an u powors, recounted by the nation and by forrigu powers, by treaties and bv other formal acts of the highest authority, it is not perceived oo what ground an indemnity can oereiused. no principle is belter established. han that the nation is respomible tor the acta ol its, government, aud that a change id the au tbority doe not aflett the obligation. Iu thi disordered date of that country for several year pait,it has been thought useless to press this claim, but, now that affairs appear to be settled, it would be improper longer to dolay. The presi dent indulges a strong hope, that reparation will uow be made. Iu the discharge of this trust, in the manner ol the negotiation, aud in Uie provi sinu for Ihe debt, should such be made, you will niamlett a spirit ol conciliation towards Ihe gov emuirnt of Naples. Any reasonable accooiuio - daUnn, as to the time and the mode of payment which may be desired, will be cheerfully allowed. .1 . " As you a ill he well acquainted with the ua - lure of these c laims, aud the right of the United States lo an indemnity, with the principles on w hich it is fonjided, aud Ihe arguments and facts which support il, it is unnecessary for me lo en ler lurlhtr inlo the subject. 'I he president has lull commence that nothing will be wanting on your part to secure success lo the misnon. Pali lied lhalyoti will discharge it duties with e - qual ability and dircrction, it is thought improper, bv too much precision, to impose auy restraint on vour judgoicot, either as to (lie man ner or the argument to bo used in the negoUa - tiou. " Your mistion lo Naples being special, its object limit' d, Mid being likewise anticipated by the Neapolitan government, it is expected that il may be londuded in a (tw iulcrtiews. It is very important that tbe United t - 'tatu, should be rrpiesrntbil at M. Petersburg, by a mini - ter nl the highest grade employed by them without auy delay which can be avoided. The prrsidtuldc - ires, therefore, that you will use every effort iu your power lo teiniiuatu the buMne.s with Naples as soon ns it may be pne - ible, and th.it you will proceed thence, immediately afterward, to St. Petetsbuig " The urxt paper is " Extract, of a letter from Mr. Piukney, niiniitcr at Nadirs, to the tecrcta ry of slate, dated Naples, August 29th, 18 1 6."

The uudersigaeJ, envoy extraordiuaiy of tho United States ol America, has already had the nonor 10 mention to Ma excellency the marquis ui , irteiio, secretary 01 sialo aud miuntur lor foreign affairs ol his majesty he king nl the two .t: M 11. . . ... . . . Sicilies, tne principal objects of his musin : and he uow invites his excellency's attcutiou to a more detailed aud linniul exposition of ems ol these objects. I he undersigned is sure that the appeal which lie is about to make to the well ki.owa Ju.tice of hi aieilikii n.njesty, in the name aud bv the or ders of Ins government, will receive a delibe rate and candid consideration ; and that, if il hall appear, as ha (rusts it will, to be recommended by those principles which it 11 the interest, as well as the duty of all governments, to oiiserve aud maintain, the claim involved iu it will be admitted, effectually and promptly. The uudei - Mgned did Lutubcy the instructions nt Ihe president of the United stales, wtieu he assured his excellency tho marquis di Cirtello, at their first mt ervirw, that his mission was ug - gcbled by such sentiments towards his Sicilian mnjes'.y as could out laJI to be approved by hioi. Those sentimeuts are apparent in the desire which Ihe president has manifested, through the undersigned, that the ccmmercial relations .between Ihe territories of his majesty aad those ol the United Slates should be cherished by re - cipro cal arrangements, sought in the spirit of eulight - rued friendship, aud with a sincere view lo such equal ltd vantages, as it is fit for nations to derive Irom one another. The representations which the undersigned it commanded to make upon Ihe snbjril ol I he present note will be seen by his majesty in the same light. 'J'hry shew the fine reiifthce of the president upon the ilispo - itioi. ol the court of Naples, impartially to discuss and ascertain, and lailhlu'.ly to discharge its obliga tions towards luieigu states and their citizens ; a reliance which Ihe undersigned partakes with hi; government; and under the influence of which he proceeds to state the nature aud grounds ol the reclamatiou in question, It cannot but be known to his excellency the marquis di Circe I lo, that, on the 1st of July, 1809, the minister of foreign affairs of the then government of Naples, addressed to Frederick Degan, Esq. then consul of the United Stales, an official letter, containing an invitation to all .1 merican vessels, having on board the usual certificates of origin aod other regular papers, lorome direct to .X a pie with their eartroes nd that the same minister caused that uivita - tion io be published in every possible mode, in order that it tni;ht come to the knowledge ol tho whom it concerned. 11 will not be ques tioned, that Ihe promise of security neceranly implied in this measure, had every bile, in Ihe actual circumstances of Europe, to the confidence of du - titnf ZZi peacelul merchants.

Upon the credit, and under ihe proteotion of lhat pmraue, they sent to Naples maiy valuable vessels and cargies, iiati - ealed and docui - eiited with scrupulous reguL.n - ?v aod in 110 respect obooxfous lo mulesulmn ; but searcely had they reached (he destination to which they hd bseu allured, wheu they weie :. - .! without distinction, as prise or as other - . csriMUd to Jie Neipolitan governaient, up - ' "' , "tost frivulous aud idle.
