Yesterday morning, about one o'clock, aa the Mail Stage irom uic eastward was passing through Bay - brook, two or three miles this side of Hampton Falls, a man suddenly caught hold of the ' reins of the leading horses, crying out - wo," and turning them to the side of the road. Mr. Potter, the driver, however, by skilful management of the reins and applying the whip, immediately succeeded in turning the horses into the road and disengaging them from the villain A few minutes after he saw three men coming from the field into the road, but he was driving with great rapidity, and they made no attempt to molest him. There were only two passenger in the stace. As soon aa the stage reached Ncwbiiryport, persona were sent to me puce where the mail stage was attempted to be stopped, where they found a pole lying across the road, from which it was cn. luded that a robbery of the mail waa intended.

Wo hare eeo a letter from Buenos Ayres, written in Spanish, to a gen - tleman fa this city, dated Jan. 13, which states, that a Spanish cruiser had taken an English brig, bound to Louden, carried her into the Bay of All Saints, unloaded her, and detained all thai part of her cargo which was American. Such property as belonged to British subjects was re leased, and the brig suffered to proceed on her Voyage. This looki very much like hostility on the part of Spain.

JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, Secretary of Slate, Here followed an interesting debate, which we shall give in our next. STATE OF SOUTH AMERICA. . Ilenoit of the secretary of state, transmitted by the president to the house of representatives, on the Zjth inst. Th secretary of slate, to whom has been re ferred the resolution of the house of represents lives of the 10th of December, has the hone r of submitting the documents herewith transmitted, a containing the information possessed at hi department, requested by that resolution. Iu Uie communications received from Don Manuel II. de Aguirre, there are references to oertain conferences between him and the secretary of state, which appear to require some ex planation. I he character in which Mr. Asuirre present ed himself was that of a public agent from the government of I. a f lata, anil of private agent of thatol Chili his commissions from both sun - nly qualified him as agent ; but his letter from the supreme director I'ucyrredon, to the presi dent of tlio United States, requested that he might be received with the consideration due to his diplomatic character. lie had no commission as a public minister of any rank, nor any full power to negociate as such. Neither the letter, of which ho was tho bearer, nor he him self, at hi first interviews with the secretary ol itatc, su"geted that h was authorized to ask the acknowledgment of his government as inde pendent a circumstance which derived addi tional weight from the fart, that his predecessor, Don Martin I homison, had been diimisscd by the director Pueyrredon for having transcended his powers ; or which the letter brought by Mr. Aguirre gave notice to the president. It was some time after tlin commencement of the session of congress that he made this demand, as will bo seen by the dates of Ins written com munications to the department. In the confer ences held with hint 00 that subject, among other questions which iiviiaturally sujirojtcil, were those of the niaiiaj in which the acknowledg ment of his government, should it be deemed ad visable, might be made f and what were the tcr ritories which ho considered as forming the state or nation to be rerogiiizril It was observed, that the manner in which the United States had keen acknowledged as an independent iowcr by France, was by a treaty concluded ' with them, as - ail exialiug independent ower, and in which acb one of the states then cnniHing the Union, was distinctly named : that something of the same kind seemed tube necessary in tho first ao kiinwledgmcut of a new sovernmioit, that some definite idea mgriit be formed, uot of the precise boundaries, but of the general extent of the country thus recognised. He said, the govern meut of which he desired Use acknowledgment was ol the country which had, before the revo lution, been the vice royalty of La Plata. It tras then asked, whether that did not include Montevideo and the territory occupied by the Portuguese: the Banda Oriental, understood to be under the government of general Artigas, and sev. - ral provinces, still in the undisputed posse ion of the Spanish government. He said it did ; but observed, thai Artigas, though in hostility with the government of Buenos Ayres, support ed, however, the cause of independence of Spain and that the Portuguese could not ulti mately maintain their possession of Montevideo. 11 was alter ttns that Mr.guirre wrote the letter, offering to enter iuto a negociation for conducting a treatr : though admitting that he had no authority to that cff ct from his povernmeuL It may tie proper to observe, that Uie mode of reto;vuon by concluding a treaty had not been suggested as the only one practicable or usual, but merely as that which bad been adopted by Fiance with the United States, and as offering tk - mostrouvci icnt means of designating the ex - ten? r the territory ackuowledged as a uew darn 0100. The remark to Mr. Aguirre, that if Buenos Ayrei hould be acknowledged as inde,)endcnt, olhcrsofthe contending pmviuces would. rt. hapfj demand the same, had particularly refer ence to the fianda Oriental. ' Th enquiry was, whether gea. Artigasmiaotadvanceaciajm ofirelrpeodeaee for lboe provinces, ceoflicUog with that of Baeaos Ayres for lb whole vice royalty of La Plata , Th Portuguese possession of Montevideo was noticed ia reference to a similar qaestsoa. It should be added, that these observation were connected with others, stating th reason upon which th present acknowledgement of the government of La Plata, in any mode, was deemed, by the president, inexpedient, in regard at well to their interests as to thee of the United State.

The following message was received from Uie President, by Mr. J. J. Monroe, his Secretary : To tht House of Representatives otlie V. States. I transmit to the House of Representatives, in compliance with their resolution, of March the 20ih, such information not heretofore communicated, as is in the possession of the executive, relating to the occupation of Amelia Island. If any doubt had before existed of the improper conduct of the persons who authorized, and of those whu were engaged in the invasion, and previous occupancy of that is land 1 of Uie unfriendly spirit towards the U - mtcd States, with which it was commenced and prosecuted, and of its injurious effect on Uicir highest interests, particularly by its tendency to com prom it them with foreign powers in all the unwarrantable acts of the adven turers, it is presumed that these documents would remove it. It appears by Uie letter of M. Kazos, agent ot commodore Aury, that Uie project ot seizing the Hondas was formed and executed at a time when it was understood that pain had resolved to cede them to the United States, and to prevent such cession from taking effect The whole proceeding, in every stage and in all its circumstances was unlawful. The commission to Gen. McGregor was granted, at Philadelphia, in direct violation of a positive law and all the measures pursued under it, by lum, in collecting' his force, and directing its movements, were e (inally unlawful. With the conduct of these persons, I have always been unwilling to con nect any of the colonial governments ; because 1 never could believe that they had riven the sanction either to the project 111 its origin, or . . . 1 ...1 . , " ., 10 uic incaHurea vtnicii were pursued ill toe execution of it.

Aftei conversation respecting it, this motion was neeatived. The House Uien having again resolved itself into a committee of the whole, Mr. Desha in the chair, on the general appropriation bill ; and Mr. Clay s motion to insert an appropria tion for a Minister to Buenos Ayres, being yet under consideration 1 Mr. Loundes addressed the house in a speech of about an hour and a half, in opposition to the motion. Mr. Robertson followed, in a speech of an hour's length, in support of the motion. Mr. Smith, of Mil next addressed the House in opposition to the motion, at some length Mr. Floyd then delivered his view in favor of the adoption of the amendment. Mr. Johnson, of Ky. followed in a speech on the same side of the question. Mr. Forsyth spoke briefly in explanation when, On motion of Mr. Smith, of Va. Uie commit tee rose, obtained leave to sit again 1 and Uie House adjourned. From the Savannah Republican, March 18, Important, if f rue. We are informed, that a reipeclabie farmer, who was in town yesterday, reported that an ludian runner arrived on Uie frontier of Tatnall county, on the 11th instant, bringing information that Uie savages had made an unsuccessful attempt to surprise Uie forces under gen. Jackson, at a place called the Ham mock, near Flint river. It was night when our army was assailed, but so well were their arms directed, that 500 of the enemy were left, dead on the Geld, and among them several whites and negroes. All Uie wounded were carried off; so that their exact loss could not be ascertained. Jackson is represented as having lost 100 men in xiiitdand wounded. From the National Intelligencer, March 28. The southern mail of yesterday, brought a re sort of a battle between the Indians and the treops under gen. Jackson. However likely to happen, we have reason to believe the present repert ol an engagement is unfounded. Extract from a letter dated Charleston Uie 18th March. Sir I have wrote you the particulars of my confinement in Uie prison of thia city, yester day commodore Aury was also introduced into these damp walls by order of our good friend the Spanish consul. From the Baltimore Federal Republican, March 27, 1818. Oen. M ina not dead.' On the authority of two Letters received in this city one from the aid of Gen. Mina dated 14 days since, the other fom Gen. Mina himself, dated only 30 days since, we are justified in asserting that the account published of that officer's beinir taken and shot, is without foundation and that his affairs are now in a more prosperous situation Uian ever they have yet been. From the.XitirDial Intelligencer of Fridau. The papers luid before Coueress iluriue the two last days have shed much light on the ijiiestiou now pending in the House ol Representatives, as well as on several others w hich have been lately agitated. Those wlio have assailed the govern ment on the score of the suppression of the rendezvous at Amelia Island, may nib their jaded pens ; fresh food is afforded for their rai;e by new proof of the correctness of that measure of the Executive. I lie Debate yet continues in the House of Re presentatives on the general question respecting the South American provinces, and grows even more animated as it proceeds. The quesliou of a War with Spain is almost aa much debated as the question actually before the House, such is the latitude of the dicusssion. From the Baltimore Patriot of March 27. We have been favored with the following: ex tract of a letter from Buenos Ayres, in addition to what we published yesterday. " Buenos Ayres, Jan. 23, 1813. 11 The present government reiims with ah iron rod, and banishment is the order of the day ; but, it will require all the ngilauce and energy they possess, to stop the flam that is now rising, and which ultimately must bum forth with a rage unprecedented, in this country. The suc cess of Uie troop in Chili, is very doubtful I alcahuaua, which has never been in the hands of the patriots, and on which they have made two unsuccessful attacks, has been reinforced from Lima by 3,000 men. The last uews says the patriots hare evacuated Conception, and fall en upon Uie town of Talca on the river Manli. The attack made by these people against gen. Artigas, of the Ban da Oriental, has met with Uie reward it merited. In the first attack, they met th a loss of 300 killed and 47 prisoners, and one piece of artillery. The force gone against Uie BanJa Oriental, is only 1500, and I think it ex tremely doubtful if many return to tell the story. Artigas is a brave, intelligent man, of litUe education, but of i.iund, solid judgmeut ; adored by his army and the people of his province, and I believe the only true republican in tho country. He is now strurclinz with all his force a - gainst Uie combined efforts of Uie Portuguese and this government. How must a republican feel when he sees and hears a people crying out lor liberty and down with all royalty, and at Uie same moment assisting a crowned head in esta blishing its tyrannic dominion over a free people ! Is it consisteut ? Is it credible f But such is the case, and I leave you to Form your opi nion, inev may call Artigat trite, savage. monster. Ui him be so, he is at the headVf! his nation, by Uie unanimous desire of Uie peo ple ; and Uie Portuguese are invaders of his territory, assisted by the government as much as they dare and as much as they can."
