Tlie law, therefore, required a total abolition of dicriininatingor countervailing duties in the foreign nxtion, operating against the Unittd States, and offered only a pnrtiul repeal of our dicriminaling duties, which operated aeniiiat them, in return. . From an imperfect view of Uie provision of this act, which can be fully understood only by collating it with tlie general system and the purticular provisions of the acts imposing (iiscnuiinui'n ; aunts, pari of which ouly It nroiHiicd to n real, tlie itoveru JaC d l oi ino n biiienaiiuB, nuu uiui - ia, ffiriwur ,u A - I" I - kT At I . .

The power of the Presi dent a, however, restricted by the terms of the law. - The law of the Netherlands imposed diacriiuinating duties of formate, and on mer chandise J0iiorted in loreitn veseii, but wild out any distinction with retard to the origin of the mercnanrtiie. vnen, ineiriore, mey re Yoked their discriminating duties so far as re Meted tlie United Slates, they considered tliemschrcs, by the act of Congress of 3d March, 1815, entitled to a total repeal of the discriminating duties in the United States, Derating against (be in, not only the tonnage duties, but thoc onon merchandise, whether of the pro duce or manufacture of the Netherlands, or of nv nlher country. This was. however, not warranted by the art of 3d March, 1U15, nor Could it be stipulated by treaty, without ini - olv inz consequences aflti'linir the c.miini rcial re lations between the United States and other countries. The revocation of tlie discriminating dull" upon merchandise imported in vessels ol the Netherlands, would be 01 little avail if limited to ui tides the produce or mumifnclureof that count i y, the principal part of whose exiwrta - t ons consist of the produce and manufacture of others. Hut, on Uie other hand, if that distinction in our navigation and revenue laws should be broken down wilh respect to one nation, it could he wilti difficulty, if at all, maintained with regard to any other. i Thb other dilhVulty wiiich occurred in the ne gotiation, related to tlie admission of vessel of the United State iuto tlie colonies of the Ne - the Hands, if not upon the same footing a into the port of the Netherlands in Europe, at least upon that of tlie most favored nation. To tlii it was objected by the I'lenipotvntiarirs of Uie that certain fuvor were granted by tin in 'o other nations, themselves possessing col inies, for the equivulent of similar favors conceded in return, which could not lie conceded to ' nali'n Ksseiiig no colonics, and therefore not enabled to concede the euiiiviilcnt.

JOHN QU1NCY ADAMS. NEW - YORK ErEMKa POST. Saturday, march sr. J - HoitUtty of Spain. Out readers will see, by the document publ'shed this evening, which wns received by this, morning's mail, by the way of Baltimore, and furnished us by the kindness of a riend, that the Spaniards have already struck th lint blow. Tlie ihip (leaver, owned by John Jae?b Aator, of this city, and laden with a very valuable cargo, and the brig Canton, of Salem, have been seised at Taleahuana,antl their crews thrown into prison, for being engaged in a trad which tbo mother country had considered unlawful, but which the patriots, in possession, had declared freo. . For trading; with those port American veucl are seized and thoir crews im prisoned, while British vessels are permitted to trado unmolested. Against such an act of boiWity, the governor of Chili, very spiritedly has, as will be seen, entered his protest, as a breach of Ihe law of nations, in doing violence to a neutral port. The particulars aro trans - mitled to congress, and will probably soon appear in an official form. Troubled for Ihe - KtwYork Evening Pott.' Trom the Buenos Ayres Gazette, of the 3d of January lact, we have translated an account, puhli.hed in the Chili Gazette of Saturday the 6th of December, If) 17, from tho tentorial quar ter of Conception on the 22 J of November, 1817, Flotation nj Ihtlaw of nation By Mr. Fian - oil Uteres, second supercargo of tho American ihip Beaver, which sailed from the port of New - York, detained to the North. West Coast, the isl and of Japan, and Canton, who took refuge in this place the fifteenth instant, after havinz esca ped with five other individuals from the prison of I alcahuana, where they were couDued, we have been informed, that having approached this orl in search of water, wood and fi Hi provisions, af ter a voyage ol 1 lib days, the ahove ship was surprised in the vicinity or the inland of tuin - qitinire by an armed force, who took poj;ssioii ol her, ana iminediaicly organ to search an t plunder whatever they could lay their hand - upon, witliout sparing the clothe?, paper, and other necessaries of the officers of that ship ; and after having committed the greatest eicessesand insulted them in the gro'seit m:innor, cariied her to Talcahuana, when having stripped the vessel of her sails, and whatever was nure.'sai v to enable her to continue her voyage, they l:iud ed her crew, and adopted against thctn every hostile measure which nations the ino&t inimir al itse agaiuit one another ; endangering, at the same time, tho vetcl aud all her cargo, which accordion to the invoice price in the U. States amounted to more than two huudred thousand dollars. They behaved in tho tame manner to the A morican bri" Canton, from Salem, Ircatiu; iu the like nianu'T Mr. J.iinci Janisou. rmJ her u percargo, Mr. Coffin, who touched at the same port twenty days before If iti ship Beavrr, as she was oil her route to the North West Coast aud China, which, with her cargo worth eighty thou sand uoiiars in goous, was ueuareu I y tno go vernor ofTal:ahnam a good and lawful prize they also rnhbed him of eighty thousand harj dollars which lis was conveying to China, and as Mr. Reeves thinks, they will take both vessels immediately to Puerto Callo. Such proceedings show, in the clearest light, the periidy and barbarity of our enemies, who. wilhont paying the least respect to the individuals of a iieutial nation, have violated, in tho most scaud.doiis manner, the rights, law, and con duct, hitherto respected by even tlie most unci valued. I iLiubt not, when the government to which tnese injured person bWeiig, shall know and he informed of the iniunci and insults beat ed upon them, she will mako them a subject ol the best fjuuded complaint, and will exercise her utmost energy and zeal to rcveuge such an insult, and ohtain a sutislar(i,o such as the cae require. I am also persuaded, that other nations, at the mere relation of such an even t, - will he struck wilh horror, and recognize tho Spanish harartex, in lhe resptct, as stimula'cd and artiiattvj solely by a spirit of robbery, for hrr equals, and a thir for pillage, without an idea of repairing theiiicnnveniciicrsand evils, a conduct so unheard of, auJ reprobate wuat oc - cisiou.

Tbey first set to and made their supper on a piece of smoaked beef, and left their pairings on the counter. Among sundry articles of mer chandize missing are seven or eight jugs of rum, tea, tic. The jugs were taken from a shelf, mutv. and filled out of the standing cask. This i . - is the second time this store has been robbed within a month. By a fishing boat that passed the Hook last evening at sunset, we are informed that the ship Otis, (ashore at the Hook) as they pasted her, appeared to be driven high upon the beach. The weather was inch that no lighters could get nigh her. The Steam - Boat Paragon, arrived this morn ing from Albany, being bar trst trip this season. from our Correspondent, the Editor ef tlie Al bany Daily Gazette, we learn that the Senate last Wednesday ia committee of the wbele, passed a bill relative to auctioneers, which authorises tlie Comptroller to license auctioneers instead of their appoiatuient by the Council of Appoint ment, on paying for said license in New - York 400 ; Albany, Troy and Hudson, $50 1 other parts of the state $5 ; in other respects subject to the former law. In the house, that section of the militia bill, which obliged the citizen soldier to encamp for eleven days, was stricken out, 70 lo 33. The committee, to whom was referred the petition from New - York, praying a repeal of the statute relating to uaurr( have reported' in fa vor of the petitioners, and brought in a bill. nir. anarjut, irora this cuy, uas introduced a bill, entitled "An act to incorporate the Mer cantile Insurance Company;" read twice and committed. Extract of a letter from St. Jagode Chili, dated December 13, 1017. " The British ship Portsea, Nichols, master, from Calcutta, via Port Jackson, with a cargo of 1200 bales piece goods, and value about 300,000 doliars, has just arrived at Valparaiso. It is oow ascertained that it was the ship Bea ver, Capt. Ckavland, that was captured off Valparaiso in October, and it is said that Ihe super cargo, with five of the seamen, bad escaied from Talcahuana, and arrived at Conception ; that the captain and crew were in prison, and the ship condemned. The brig Cnnton, of Salem, (M Coflin, supercargo) is also said to have hecn taken ; the master and crew in conGncmenl at Tal cahuana, and the property confiscated. What a pity that an American frigate is not here, to as certain whether our countrymen are justly doomed to the horrors of a Spanish prison or not. Many British vessels are in the ports nf Chi' i, and the British' frigate Amphion, com" Dottles, is on the station to protect the traile - Nov 6. Arrived British brig Catalina, Wai ner, from London. The UritUh frigate Amphion, Com. Bowles, sailed from Lima on the 3d Nov. to demand the restitution of Uthi. - il, vessel deuinej there." FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.

Borne apprehen sions existed a short time previous of a Spanish expedition, aided by a Russian .auxiliary force, was co in mgout lo restore t erdioancfs authority ; out me alarm had entirely subsided. ; Hostilities had commenced between the W ernmetit of Buenos Ayres and the patriots of the nanua unentai, or east tide of the River La Plate ; and in consequence of representations made to the former, that part of the army under general Artiga bad revolted from his command and solicited their assistance, a division of troops was sent over toco - operate with them in expelling hint from the government, but owing to the vigor and promptitude of gen. Artiga on the occasion, report says, the expedition was en tirely aeieaicd, and nearly all either killed or maue prisoners, nothing further had been at tempted by either side after this e veut. 8e veral officers, however, who had deserted the cause oi general Artiga and joined the enemy, on being ...i i . i ... - umou were iiumeuiaieiy snoi. Talcuhnan (the only town in possession of the royuusu in ioiii; sun held out lor Uie royalists. no aiiempi nau recently been made by the patriots to take it bv atorm - slhut after obtaining nnr. tial possession of the works, were compelled to re - treat win considerable loss, it was stated that an additional reinforcement had lately arrived to the assistance of the besieged ; and in telligence had likewise been obtained that an expedition was preparing to sail from Lima fur uie invasion oi t - nili in consequence or which, the most active preparations were making to repel the enemy in case be should attemnt to land. By letters from St. Jago, it was stated, that all the troops stationed in the capital had marched for the coaJ. under the command of general St Martin who, by the last accounts, was encamped in the neighborhood of Valparaiso, with 5 to 6000 men under him. The same letters mention. ed that a very general spirit of patriotism pre - vaneu among uie people, attended by a hrmssre - olution to maintain, at all hazards, the independence of their country. Measures, however, had been taken for the preservation of property both in the capital and on the coast, in rase of inva sion, by iU removal to a greater distance into tlie interior. The most amicable relations nnneared toeviii between the Portuguese and the government of nurnos Ayres, aiuiougb the impressisn was general, at one time, that war would have been declared by tue former, in consequence of the capture of two Portuguese vessel by a Buenos Ayrean privateer. They, however, have been restored, and since that time both parties ap - km iu m on guuu uuucTiianuing wun eacn o - ther. The Portuguese are still at war with general Arugas, and nave blockaded Uolooia a port on tbe east side of the River La Plate This is the only event of consequence that has occurred be tween them for some time past. The object ef blockading loioma, is to prevent the entrance into port ot any prizes taken by Artegas' com miliums. In other respects, tbe Portuguese have become very friendly to the patriots on that tide, and 0n all occasions treat them with considerable respect and confidence. The re sult of this conduct towards them, is, that the patriot irequcntly come within the Portuguese Uues at Monte Video, and enter the city without molestation The Portuguese at Monte Video, M nnw (ne In I Iwaakh hut) plentifully supplied with provisions of every kind from their enemies, though at one time, the greatest scarcity existed. As tha Portuguese are no doubt, aiming at the sovereignty of the country bn tlie east side of the river, the policy of upem.ig a friendly intercourse with the inhabitants, mav b tbe means best calculated to attain their euds. Their hostilities are chiefly directed against Arlrgas : whom they must vanquish before any change of governmnnt ran be effected J hit general rules despotically, and continues to maintain great influence over the peoidn.

The attention of the House of Assembly was principally engrossed yesterday, upon the militia bill reported a few days since. The most prominent features ol this bill, and that which will probably call forth the most opposition, is that requiring the annual encampment of all commissioned and non - commissioned officers and musicians, for ten days, (as is contemplated) at sucb time and place as the commanding! nicer of the brigade shall direct ; during which time the said commissioned officers, non - commissioned officers and musicians, may be required to perform every and any part of camp duties, and any mar tial exercise, directed by the commanding officer' present ; and the commissioned officers may be required io periorm tne duties ol non - ccmmis - sioncd officers or privates, and durinc which time they are lo be subject to the rule and articles of war.

The enclosed dot uments shew tbat I lie hostilities of ibis tribe were unprovoked, tbe ofVspring of a spirit, long cherished and often manifested towards the U Suites, and that, io the present instniice, it w as extending itself to other tribes, and daily assuming a more serious aspect. A soon as the nature aud object of this combination were perceived, the Major General commanding the Sotitliern division of Uie troops of ihe V. Slates, was ordered to the theatre of action, charged with Ihe management of the war, and vested with Ihe powers necessary lo give it effect. The season of the year being unfavorable to active operations, and the recesses of the country afTortling shelter to these savages, in rase of retreat, may r,vvcnt a prompt termination of the war ; but it may be fairly presumed, that it will not be long before this trilie and its associates receive the punishment which they have provoked and jusllv merited. As almost the whole of this tribe inhabits the country within the limits of Florida, Spain wat bound, by ihe treaty of 1713, to restrain them from committing hostilities apamst the (J. Stales.

Orders have been given to the Gene ral in command not to enter Florida, miles it be in pursuit of the enemy, and in thai case to respect the Spanish authority wherever il is maintained , and he will be instructed to w ithdraw his forces from the province, as soon a he shall have reduc ed that tribe to order, and secured our fellow citizens in that quarter, by satisfactory surangetaents, against it unprovoked and lavage hostilities ia future. - JAMES MONROE.
