No. It - The secretary ol state, to don Luis d (inv, envoy extraordinary and minuter pleni poteutiary from Spain. ' Department of State, March 12th, 1813. Sir The admission id your letter of the 24lh of January, that all the net, grounds, and arguments, alleged in your previous note of Sjfth Uecemner, and of 5th and 8lh January, in tup ponoi ine prltnsius of yur government, upon the tcreral point of duTcrenre which bave to long substtttd betwten the United MxUt and Spain, are esseuliallv the nm as had alreadv been advanced and discussed, at the period wf u cftimommary misuon to SfMn, in 1005; while it juitita the reluctance, on a,, pgjt D the Asaerkae government, manifrrted Ui my letter of the lth January, to the renewal at an exhausted 4icu9ion, cannot but eacite tome ur - priae, as composing en htilt with the profeiiont of lb carneet deeire of vourtovernment t tho - e diflVreiKei to a tieedy and happy termi hbuoo. wain ut oern so strongly aKl M re r - 1 , wii w foot noies, a in Uia comauaicauoni trooi Uoo Fraarisro Pirr - ro to the minister of the United State at Madrid The observation, that truth ii of all tim, soxl that reason and justice are founded noon im m ii - table prmciplt. has never been conte.t.l h. th. United States; but nri.hcr truth, reason, nor juiiKuwiKiu siuoDonmesioi asserti.A, nor the multiplied renetitioa of error. I referred you U the letter from the extraordinary mission of 1804, to Don Pedro Ceval'.os, for aa ample and satisfactory refutation of the supposed tacts, groundiaod arguments now reproduced by you. - You reply by telling me, that the, e don ool appear to oe a siaile incident to give the smaller f opport to the pretention of my government that all the mu otittoo on which tt bm pb MUmpted tofotnd them have bees rsluUU ana Ai.f.l i ilu tiieiiisn eovemaww MOFtraUoa to Uminoat and convinciof, u to aiiMiii to reason to resist it." .ABO ... mxr ikn tmt. intimate, that the Amen cJ'rovemment doe Mi, ittelf, believe in th ..i:T.. r ,1,. atnis and ajxuateot otad by iu ministers, in lopjort of th claim of the UwUd .States, as asserteu uy menu - To laoguag and entimente such at these, the government of the United State cannot reply ; nor can it, without an effort, continue at ali a discussion sullied by oco ua wormy auu grounu - Uamnntaflons. . I am directed by the president to confine the observation upoo your Utt notes, to those parts rj then which have relation to the essential ubjecte of controversy between the two na lions. You perceive, air, that the government of the United State it not prepared either to renounce any of the claims which it has been so loug urg - inc apoa th justice of Spam, or to acquiesce in tor of those argument which appear to you so lutainou and irresistible. Determined to pursue the establishment of their right, a long a by any possibility they can be pursued through the paths of peace, they have acquiesced, at the message of the president, at the commencement of the present session of concrete, ha informed you, in that policy ol bpain, which aa hitherto procrastinated the amicable adjustment of these interest, not from aa insensibility to their importance to this onion, nor from any indifference to the object of being upoo cordial terms of harmony with Spain, but because peace It among the dearest and most earnest object of their policy ; and because thty have considered, and still consider it, more congenial to the principles of humanity, and to the permanent welfare of both nations, to wait for the favorable operation of time npon the pre judices and passion opposed to them, than to retort to the unnecestary agency ol force. Af ter a lapse of thirteen yean of patient forbear ance, in wailing for the moment when Spaia fbould find it expedient to meet their constant deiire of bruiging to a happy and harmonious ter - tninhtiou all the conflicting interests between them, it will need little additional effort to wait somewhat longer with the same expectation The president deems 'his course eveu more ad - viieable, than that of referring the questions de pending between the two nations to the arbitra mtut or mediation of one or more friendly Euro pean powers, at you bar been aulhorixed to propose. But if vou have nronotali to make, to which it ii possible for Ibe government of the United Slate to listen, wi)h a prtnpectof bringm them to any practicable conclusion, I am authorized to receive them, and to conclude with vou a treaty for the adjustment of all the duTrrencrs between the two nalioni, upon term which may be tatitfartory to both. With reeard to th motive for the ncciinalinn of Amelia Island, the message from the president of the United Stales to congress, aud my letter to you of 16th January, hare given tbe explanations which, it u presumed, will be sa tisfactory to your government. The exposed and feeble situation of that island, at well as of the remainder of East Florida, with their lo cal position in the neighbourhood of the United Slater, have always been among the primary inducements of the United States, for urging to Spain the expediency to the interests of both ualiout, that Spain should cede Ihem for a jut and suitable equivalent to the United State. In the letter of the 2Ulh of January, 1805, from Meors. rtrv kney Rnd Monroe, to Mr. Cevallos. the following parage stands prominent simonc the arguments uned b them to that effect. "Should Spain," say they " not placci a itroos force in Florida, it will not escape your excel lency's attention, tha'. it will be much exposed to the danger of being; taken possession of by some ether powr, who might wih to hold it with very dim rent views towards Ssiid, than those which animate the goveoiment of the United State Without a ttrong force behig there, it might even become an aylum for adventurer and freebooter, to the great annoyance of both nation"." You know, sir, how far th event, thus antici pated, and pointed out at early as in January, 180.1, to th prudent forecast of Spain, have been realiied. Peniacola ha been occupied by another power, for the purpot of carrying oo a war irooi it againsi tne Uaitt J state, and Amelia Island has been occupied by adventurers, to the great annoyance of both nations, and of all other engaged in lawful commerce upon the iiun oi Mexico, ur - lore these events occurred, the congren of Ihe United State, aware of the great and growing danger of them, which, bad been so long befor i distinctly foreseen, had made it the doty of the executive government, in the case of uch a contingency, to take the tempo rary possession of the country which might be necessary, to avert the injuries lhat must result irons it. Amelia island was taken, aot from the potjenion of Spain, but of those from whom the had been equally incapable of keeping or of re covering its possession, and who were using it for purpo - e incompatible with the lawt of nation and of the United State. No purpose, either of taking or of retaining it a a conquest from Spain ha ever been entertained t and unless ce ded by Spain to the United States, it will be i stored whanever the danger of its bring again thui occupied and misused shall have ceased. It is needless to add, that the proposal that the United States should take any further measure than those already provided by law for prevent inz armaments boilile to Spaiu within the terri tories of the United states, is inadmissible. The measures already taken, and the lawt already existing against all hostdo armaments within our jurisdiction, incompatible with tbe obligations of neutrality, are tuilicieut lor its pmservation : and the necessary meant will continue to be uted, a Ihey have been, to carry them laithfnlly into ex ecution. I hare tbe honor to be with great consideration, Sir, Your obe't. and very humble servant, (Signed) JOHN QUINCY ADAMS. ffEW - YOhK fA.Vf7 POUT. FRIDAY, MARCH 57. Documents rttpeetin our affairs sriiA Spain, (cantludeA. Erery .American will peruse the letter of the secretary of state with pride and pleasure. Firmness in maintaining right, and spirit in repelling unjutt and unbecoming insinuations, mark every sentence. The Corporation Petition excite great inter est among all classes of the people, and the Re publican Chronicle hat an article on the subject which we thould republish but for want of room. Tht editor call for information as to how all ihii money it applied ? And truly, we think it no more than reasonable that those who are call ed npon to pay, should be unwilling to tee new (axe laid, and to an unprecedented amount, without first being satisfied how former funds have been diiposcd of. Mus .oftnson'i bentfil We believe it may be safely asertej, that the interior of our theatre never exliibiteda more beautiful spectacle than wai presented lavt evening. The fashion and beauty of New - York filled the two fi tiers of boxes, and the pit was literally crowded, as was very port cf the hou, except the galleries Such acting and men music have never been seen togetbeyialhi theatre of Ui'n country. Mr. PhiUpp was in his best voice, and obligingly re peated all the favorite tonp at tbe request of the audience. Dame wat MnurabU, aod re ceived much warn aod well - merited applause. Mis Johnson acquitted herself with additional credit, as did our favorite, Mr. Darley. We heartha Droceeds were Dearlv equal to those oo Mr. Philipi' night. For the Sett - York Evening Put. Mr. Editor. It i not generally known that the statute which authorises tbe copies was introduced into the English la w by a corrupt policy in direct op position to the boasted magna carla, or great charter of right ; that it was long opposed by the friend of freedom, and never could bave been confirmed but by the cunning policy or ex - emotintr nabltmen from beinz arrested by it. It wa unknown to the common ana cmi uw ; wr Blackstone say. ' the perton of a feudatory was too valuable to his lord, to admit ol its Deiug ai - lathed fat a debt." And it it especially unknown to the great body of the American people, that the trrtf of caputs made the boasted Kiigli'h charter of no use to the poor and unfortunate debtors and now in this country deprives him of hit most valuable natural & constitutional rigbts. And it is not the poor Mlor only who suffers bv the eoputt, but it places the liberty of every honest man at the mercy of bad men. Suppose Mr. - on bis way to Philadelphia on business of treat importance, and an evil dit - noted pertoo seises him by a capias, at Trenton. He it a ttranger there and caa not procure bail Tbe plaintiff bat no claim, for every body know Mr. owes no one but he offers Mr. tht alternative to go to jail for a day or two, or pay him 100 dollars. Unlet Mr can obtain bail, he will pay the swindler, and be rhtd to proceed on his buiiuess. Au affair of thit kind actually happened in New - Jersey three years since to a Mr. Watkint, of this city. Nor are these instance solitary. The writer has seen eight prisoners In jail in this city at one time, every one of whom were creditors of the men who respectively confined them by the ea 1 puu. It is a common incident lor the sailor' landlord in our cily to issue writs against sailort and throw tbem into pnsou for a pretended debt, with a view to make tbem give order for their wares. Aod to add to the atrocity of this prac tice, the sailort would starve utiles he humane society fed those sailortduring their confinement. II any man doubt this statement, let him ask James L. Bell, Esq. the sheriff of our city, home yean since the late col. Joseph Fay, who was one of the most respectable men ip this city, received a note from a fellow in jaU by the name of Brant ingham, very politely requesting col. Fay to call at the prison on business of great importance. it wat Saturday evening and on hit arrival al the jail, col. Fay wat informed that Brantingham had lodged a detainer against him for 10.000, requiring bail for $20,000, for a supposed claim of $5000. Ou being interrogated, Bruntingham frankly and impudently avowed hr had no claim, but be demanded a $100, or threatened the col be would ho d him prisoner away from hi family till .Monday morning. Fortunately bad was procured - but it was not owing to the humanity ol our law, or the mercy of the pretended creditor, inai a villain uiu not taice away the liberty of an houett man. It it iiupot. - ible to sav how often similar attempts may be made, but since the power exists, it is reasonable to suppose it it uted in every part of the union for the purpose oi oppression. Our drama sometime illustratr. - inalauces in which Me capias is used by pretended, as well as real creditors, for most detestable purpose. t ha happrord that a husband has been imprisoned for debt with a view to compel the wife to become the creditor's mercenary ; - and it i laid there i now living in thii city a wealthy knave who imprisoned a father by thii same capias, and offered him hi liberty if he would make a prostitute of his beautiful daugh ter. All thit proves the danjert and horror to whioli every man is exposed, while the l apias itauuwea, una sl ews tnonecesity ot going naca a speeciiy at possible to the true mean - inp of that part of the constitut on which di - cUn - i, " no citzen (hall be d.prived ofliU liberty, but by presentment, indictment, and trial by .jury." If the cap s had never been allowed by law, and any man should now, for uie ni t time, dare to propose it .n our congress, the probability is, he would meet with universal execration. It is a turprising; instance of the triumph of prejudice, tliatguvei - nor Clinton thould now be abused for nroDo - sing the abolition of a practii e, which, ifn hail not the sanction of must wick - d precedent, no man would dare to advocate. But tuch it human nature. You cannot perauadt a West Indian that slaver) is not pioper or a New - Yorker that impri - onment for debt is wicked and unconstitutional. Yes thei e it a way to convince them both make the West - Indian a slate or th - New - Yorker a debtor, and they will then confess the truth and btg for sues, i never anew it tail. HOMO.

PHILADELPHIA, March 26. Marshal and Col. Grouchy. Theie diatin - Kuiilied ttraiiper were on a vitit to their friend Mr. Victor Dupont, and were preparing to go iit on a ihoeting parly, when the late awful ex plntion of the powder work on the Brandy wine ook piace, upon ine nrst alarm, tney rutued ut with other to the tcene, to afford whatever fistanre circumstance might reauire, and had luu rosied tne creel, woen the Magazine blew up, ipreading destruction in all quarter. A workman, at the elbow of Col.

Lewi and Clarke (particularly by the expedition of Sir Alexander M'Kenxie,) explored the whole country, but they had made no establish ment on the coast till 1813. In that year, previous to the arrival of the Racoon, their traders from the interior made an arrangement with tome citizens of the United States, wl o had established themselves at the mouth of the Columbia, by which they purchased their goods and post, and were found in possession ny cape Black, ot Uie Racoon, who again declared his Majesty's title to the settlement by the right of original discovery, and on this repeated the solemnities before made use ol oy ancouver, and the other British navigators who bad visit ed the spot Thi i, in fact, a revival of the ISootka ound question, the claim made by the United State arisin? solely from the pur chase of Louisiana from Spain, and which, by their construction, would put an end to our oroiected exnedition to the North Pole, since, if discovered, they would claim possession of the whole of it I What must be the mortified feelines of his Roval Hichness the Prince Re gent, on reflecting that the system which he ha countenanced, a pursued by the followers of the immortal Mr Pitt, have brought us to a condition to wink at such indignities. , The London Courier of the 2d February, in speaking of American afairs, say "Amelia Island wat taken possession ot by the V. s. troop on the 74tu uecemoer. c - ommouore tury wrote a letter to the American officer, in which he not unsuccessfully questioned Ihe right of the American government to occupy the Island, and expressed his surprize that a nation whicb so re cently established its own independence, should obstruct others in the pursuit ot tne same object. This is, at least, fair language between republi cans, who, we think, thould not be very rastidi out about their associates. We bave heard no outcries yet from the journals in this country which affect to advocate the universal rights of mankind at the proceedings of America. v e need not hint al the exclamation of horror which we should have been assailed, had a legitimate government, that is, a regal government, occu pied a territory as a measure ol precaution. But republics, in the opinion of tbese publicits. are privileged to " commit th oldest tint the newest kind of ways." Speaking of the occupation of Amelia, and the publication of the secret journal of Congress, the London Star of Feb. 3, says" The North American system seems to require, at this time, some official elucidation, and if we mistake not very greatly, it will not be long that one or more of the Governments of Eu rope will be able to avoid demanding some sa tisfactoiy explanation. Britain has precwely the same right to occupy Amelia Island at this moment, that the United States had on the 2!d Dec. last. FROM OUR CORRESPOND EAT. Office of the Norfolk Herald, ) March 23.
