JtEW - YUKK EFEJMfO POST. .TUESDAY, MARCH 24. Interesting Pampfdel.Vf have received from an obliging correspondent at Washington a pamphlet entitled a "Menace of the President tf the Vnilid Stales, transmitter, the eorrespon - , ientt between the department of ilatt and the Spanish minuter residing here, Anting the pre unt slat of the relations between the tteo govern ment." But th great length of the correspon deoce forbids Itf entire republication in tha column! of a nawipaper, we thall therefore be congeal u restrict ourselves 10 eucn wnm from tha letter ai will give a juit view of the several point in controversy, snd the manner in which the dispute it conducted by tha diploma tiiti oo both side. We shall tea that on oar part it bat beeo maintained with an ability, both ' ai to matter and manner, that reflect high ere - . 44 oa tha department of state. We perfectly agree with the Aurora In sayrngthat the " A me rican eecretary answers all tin argument of his opponent with a rary becoming tpirit, and re auflj hi imolent language in a manner which cannot be to much commended for it spirit and lore." To - morrow we shall begin with oar extract. It i not my intention to put id pelf 00 a footing with the editor of the Advocate, norto be drawn into a controversy with a man who comidera 00 thing of any moment, but how he can best up port the ride he advocates, without regard to rignt or wrocg ; nut 1 cannot avoid noticing a paragraph iu hi paper of this moruinj, a afford ing a iecinen of what I presume he call fair dealing. - In tha Evening Post, of yesterday, an occasion . presenting it. - elf to declare my sentiment respecting Mr. Clinton's administration, I scrupled Out to say, " I for one am resily to givs him any (uiKrt in my power, at long as I approve of hit administration, without once coiisidering what ' are or what have been hi politics." . Mr. Noah, in this morning's Advocate, repre sent me to bi reader, who have no mean 0 detecting the deception, at "declaring that I will tupport Mr. Clinton, whatever may have been bi politic :" entirely omitting the most material part of tha sentence, and thus, repre anting me a pledgiug myself to give Mr. Clin ton my Unqualified support. This may be thought allowable, nay even praise - worthy, by one who professes to be guided by the maxim that every stratagem, however bate, aoy imposition, howe - Ttr gross, any falsehood, however mean anddesj picable, even to lorgery itself, in short any act, however crimiual, that, " 11 all fur tn pal tici,n but with men of fair, honorable minds, it U villainy in the extreme. Theatrical We perceive by the bill of the day and also from two of the morning papers, that on Thursday evening next we are promised one more tpecimeu of Mr. Philipp's fine power of acting and tinging, before he goe to Boston, in the character of Lionel. ht having volunteered his services on that evening for thu enri of that deserving young actress Mitt Johnson. To thi Editor qf the Jf. Y. Evening Poif, Eir In your paper of last night it contain) d the account of the dreadful explosion of IJu - pool's powder - mills, which immediately called tn mind the danger to which the city ol Ii'W York it hourly exposed by the very possible occurrence of a accident. A' the distance ol two miles are situated several large reiosiloriex of gun - powder, mid in case any of these should explode, it aporart to the Writer of this article alin.irt as clear as mathema tied demonstration, that the magnificent strnc turss of our city would he prostrated and the lives of nnny be sacrdiced. In the account juit spoken of, it it stated that the quantity of gmi - )owder was about 25,000 weight. What would have hern the eflisct Irom twice, three or ten times as much, may be more easily imagined than described. The powder magazines of Brooklyn contain, to appearance, vastly nuH - e th'in that quantity; but it will be said, the liability of explosion is not near as great Tbit should not, however, lull our grand jury, corporation or citixens intn a security which Day prove as fatal . a it would he unwise The bare possibility should he sufficient toexcile their atleutioo.

A d - sirrlptioo of a process, by which corn tainted with Must may be completely punned, by Cbarle Hatchett, eq. f. rt. 8. in a letter addressed to the right honorable ir Joseph Banks, bart. O. C. B. P. R. S. Sic. Sc. M Dear Sir. The very great loss which thi country for merly experienced oy a cootiueraDie pan 01 im - m.rtMl 7 rain having become conthminaled by must, induced me, several year past, to direct oiv attentioo toward discovering some simple and economical method by which thi taint could be removed, and you well know that my endea - ror were succes - ful ; but as circumstance at that time, and since, did not appear to require that great publicity should be given to this process, I contented myself with describing it to you and a few of my other friends. Now, however, when I reflect on the large quantities of corn which, during the last harvest, have been boused in a damp state, and on the great importations tshicb are expected, with the extreme pro Da mi ity that a considerable part may have contracted must, and that thus tha object of importation may be partially frustrated by the destruction 01 a large portinuof grain, and the consequent increase in the price of the remainder, I think it incumbent 00 me, by addressing this letter to you, to lose no time in publishing a procsss, ty which corn, however musty, may be completely purified, with scarcely any low of quantity, with very little expense, and without requiring pre - rious chemical knowledge or chemical appara tus. The experiments which I made, were coofin ed to wheat, as being of the greatest importance but there can be no doubt that oats and other grain may be restored to sweetuess with equal success s and I have also additional satisfaction from being enabled to state, that the efficacy of the process may "e ascertained by any person, in any place, and upon any quantity of gram, bow ever small. From my experiments I am inclined to be lieve. that must is a taint produced by damp up on the amylaceous part of the graiu or tlarch ; that the portion of starch nearest t the husk is that which is first tainted ; and that the greater or les degree of must is 111 proportion to the taint having iieuetratrd more or less into the substance of tii grain, la most cases, however, the taint is only superficial ; but nevertheless, it not removed, it is sufficient to contaminate the odour and flavour of the whole, especially when converted into flour. Alter various experiments, I found the follow ing me'hud to beatleodcd with success. The wheat must be put into any convenient vessel capable of containing at least three times ih' quantity, an I the vessel must be subsequent ly filled with boiling water; the grain should then be occasionally stirred, and the hollow and decayed grains (which will float) may be removed ; when the water has become cold, or in ge neral wheu about half an hour hat elapsed, it is to he drawn eft". It will be proper thrn to rince the corn with cold water, in order to remove a - ny Krtiou of the water which had taken up the must ; after whi h the corn being completely drained, is wi'hout loss ol lime to he thinly spread on the floor of a kiln, and thoroughly dri ed, care bring taken to stir and to turn it frequently during this part of the process. This is all that is required ; and I have con stantly found that even the most musty corn (on which ordinary kiln drying had been tried with out effect) thus became completely purified, whilst the diminution or weight caused ly th d'ltion of the tainted part was very iuconside - raMe. I have the honor to remain, dear sir Joseph, your most railntul and ntiedient servant. ch ha i t 11 Ki r, Mount Clare, Roecliampton, Doc. 4, 1816 Front the Albany Daily .Idvtrlittr, March 21 77i penue's numry. Wa have barely room to call the attention of the public to the report in the preceding part of this paper, ofthe coinii trailer of this state, pursuant to a call of the house of assembly, of thu 20tll ultimo, relative to public de!aiilter. It will be seen by this report, that our predictions upon tins surged in January lst, are more than realised. Daniel I). romp kin, vice - president of the United Mates, there stands recorded as a public defaulter, in t he sum of 53,851 dollars and Di cents - " totally unaccounted fur." savs the comptroller. In addition to this, there remains a balance of 14440 dot lar and U3 cents, " which stand suspended un til further vouchers or explanations shall be fur imbed to shew that they are properly chargeable to the ttHte, whi h cannot be determined from the documents already prodii'ed." We have neither time nor room for comment We barely give Ihe facts as they recorded in the public rccoid.of the slate and we are to presume that the comptroller hat mado the account appear as favorable at possible to Ins ex - excrlleucy. Itul we call upon every editor in the state to ptihliMi thu report ; and mure par lit ularly upon those who were credulous enough to puliii - h the wheedling, deceptive article which appeared in tha state paper, soon after we ventured a prediction upon this subject, during the l:it winter.
