xKir - roRX.i:rExufa post. FRID1T, APRIL tO. ..JJvmUen't WeWe awa vaonrad. Mma) UtUn durbg tha'past year, from distant parti of iht United BtAtas, making enquiriet respect - iof thata of Hamilton, which, .iwat laid, wet soe after bit death la 1804, committed to the baod of a reverend gentleman of thit tow, who had aadcrUkeo to writ it, at tin request of the family of tbe deceased. It jrat then undtr - Mood by tha public, that although a consider able time would probably elapse before tba work coald appear, yet it woul I be commenced without delay. The following letter oa thit subject from an old aod Intimate friend of Geo. Hamil ton', ir given just at I received it, GENEVA, Ootario cnaoty, ) 2J February, 1818. J My Dear Sir It hai Jong been rejwrUd that the eiecu ton of general Hamilton 't will, soon after his death, made arrangements for obtaining the hUory of his Vie from the pea of a diitin - rui - hed author: aad several of the genenl'i frieadi, believing the report to be trae, have lately called en me, with moch solicitude, to bonw if f could tell them when it Is probable the public may expect to be gratified with a perusal ' of the work. My alter inability to answer the enquiry has cut me to the very quick. Taking it for printed, that you are well informed on this Interesting subject, I beg leave to request the fa ver of your giving mT applicants, through the medium of your useful paper, the information to "lie fnnnd in vour pomeasion. The interest we feel in pnWic events, nato rally dimmish as our distance from them in' areas : and, withnut a lively interest in event', their impressions on the mind and heart, by being comparatively weak, are less liable to be last In. ' After a lapse of more than thirteen years since the general's body was followed, by his mourn " Ing fpllow - citiieot, to the silent grave, the worlJ is left to deplore the want of his instructive bio graphy 11 blush in stating the fact because it justly exposes our country to the mortifyinj? rat. pities, if not to the hateful charge, of ingratitude to lbs memory of one of its most illustrious bene' factors. How fervently do I with that my fee ble pen bad the power to elevate itself to a theme so lofty I With a pen, thus powerful, I .'Would cheerfully hasten to begin, and would 1 cealonsly persevere in completing, a faithful re cord of the life of faettZon. Such a record is due to the present age to posterity to the fe deral party and to that large circle of private - friends, who, while reason maintains its sway, and the heart continues to palpitate, will never cene to admire the many virtues which adorned his character. ' i ' Trotting to your ardent attachment to the go neral't fame, and to tha acknowled impartiality of your press, I have (be fullest confidence that jou will readily comply with my request i to perfect regard", with which, "lam, my dear sir, Your humble servant, ROBERT TROUP. William Coleman, Esq. . V ' ' ANSWER. I () it to be my duty tc publish this letter, that if any one is possessed of the information tanglit for, he may communicate it lomngh the .medium of tiiis paper : form;)"! havetocoo - few, that it is no more in my power than In that of aty correspondent, to give any latiffattory intelligence respecting the object of his eoauiiy It is now more than thirteen yars, as the writer observes, since the drcea - e of Hamilton, shortly after which, papers anJ documents, tome of them too, posthumous, at I bare understood, were delivered to a reverend divine of this city, who pledged himself o be - in the biography without delay but from all I can learn, there is too much re - nnii to fear, the subject hat grown stale npou hit IiuoJj and be hat not written one line. The pledge renaint at this time not only unredeemed, ' bat no evidence hat yet appeared to induce the - belief that I he leatt effort has ever been made toward redeeming ii. In the language of my cor respondent, u such a record it due to the present age, 'to posterity, to the federal party, to that large circle of private friends," and mora espe cially to hit family aud their connections, ' who, whilt reason maintains its sway and the heart continuet to palpitate, will ntver cease to ad mire tha many virtues which adorned the cha racter of Hamilton." When a full and faithful biography of Hamilton shall hereafter appear, then, and uol till then, will the people of this country be made acquainted with the extent of tha obligation they have been under to him with out knowing it. I little did they imagine, when they were justly extolling to the skies certain state papers at containing the perfection of hu man wisdom, those papers would ene day he found to have issued from the pen of Alexander Hamilton. It is from' that impartial posterity, which knows no distinction of persons, is neither untauitel by a " ghastly, green - eyed jealousy," or a rankling enry, but is governed solely by a stern and inflexible regard for truth, 'that the memory of Hamilton can expect complete jus tice. We have received for publication a communi cation on the subject of ecclesiastical discipline, Which we most beg leave to decline. We have ever been of opinion that a newspaper it not the proper place for a ditcnstion of this kind, and in the present esse we can see no good that can result from it. - The authority which enacted the ecclesiastical law which it considered in the " communication of our correspondent, can aloiie alter, a . end, or annul it, and to it we conceive all representations on the subject should at a pro per tune be made. As to the general priacipU oa which be animadverts, a great deal possibly may be said for and against them"; but we de precate a discussion foreign to the derign of our paper, and whih might, perhaps, occupy our columns fcr a cpasderaMi period. lily ed l tot of ol Frem jffOoMy Daily Aimtuer, Afrit C, NTha Senate were yesterday again engaged ft some time upon the billdareeunge season of the Court of Errors, to be held in September next It will be recollected that this bill baa pasted several timet front one house to the other the Senate insisting upon going to New - Yoik.end the House pertistwg m their amendment, directing the court to be held at the Canitol in tbie ity.

A hill l.u been resorted in the Senate, and was under eotikkJeration a few minutes y ester - day, for altering the time oi electing memucr. of Congress. Members of Congrett in tins state are now elected about twenty months be - their duties commence, except in extra - ordinary cases i but we believe no instance hat ever occurred whersoar representatives in the national legislature have not been elected more than a year before their services have been re quired. Should the present bill pass, no election of repreeenlativea to Congress will take place until Agril 1819; and congressional elections will take place regularly every two rtart thereafter. It may be objected that un der this regulation we shall be destitute of representatives from the liHirth of March following each congressional term, until the last of April. But we believe Virginia, and some other of the southern states elect tbeir mem' bert at nearly the tame time. The House of Assembly have resolved to hold two sessions each day until the - close of the term. . From Hie Albany Daily Advertiser, April 9 The Senate yesterday returned in committee of the whole, the consideration pi the bill " loabo - litb imprisonment for debt and to prevent frauds against creditors," when the tint section abo - tithing imprisonment on execution, in all catet except actions for torts, passed with but one ne (alive vote, Mr. Bates. We understand that Mr. Van fiuren took a view of the lite and huto ry of the tyttem ; but as we were not present, we are unable to ai ve an v sketch of his art unient, Upon the second section there was an animated debate, in winch "lessrt. Miinuer, Hots ana Young took an active part, but it finally patted 18 to o. The third section wat also passed wild a trilling amendment when the committee rote. and reported, 't he House of Assembly were occupied til whole of yesterday upon the Militia Bill, as reported bi the military committee to whom it had been recommitted. I he project ot an annual encampment or the omcera, non - com missioned officers and musicians, was aban doned. The better organization of the militia, has been a standing' subject with the Legislature for years, While on the one hand all nave united in the opinion that the existing law, with all iti amendments and modifications, is extremely imperfect, yet on the other the opinions of gentlemen have been so dissimilar, Dial u has been found next to impossible lor the legislature to agree upon anv system that hat hitherto been devised. It affords us pleasure, however, now to state, that there is a fair prospect of a tyttem being adopted which will remedy most of the evils which have justly occasioned to many complaints, ami which, from the little knowledge we have of tactics, we are! persuaded will be permanent and give general satisfaction. When upon that section of (lie bill which fix es the aulaiies of (he officers, an attempt was maile by General Hoot to reduce the salary ol the Adjutant General to 1000. Among other eutleuien who opposed this preposition, was Doctor Sargent We mention this circumstance fur the purpose of bellowing a compliment upon the Lloctor, which he certainly hut not deterred before, during (he present session.

From tit National Intelligencer, Ayril 0. We find that several papers aontinue to incul catethe opinion that war with Siaiu is a rroba ble event ; deriving his imprcssiou from the re mark which fell from lr. Forsyth in the discus sion on the neutrality bill. '1 hat remark, as we observed at the time, we were certaiu did not look to a proposition for war; and we ran now itate, with the same confidence, that circumstances hare rendored it very probable that no proposition will be made by Mr. Forsyth, during the present session, louch.ug our relations with Spam. He had intended, we uiidcretaud, when ne signified nis purpose to prove the response bility ol the s - puoish government, to introduce into the bi use thro' the committee on foreign re latious, of which he is chairman, a motion 'o authorise the executive to take possession of the .Spanish territory of East Florida ; but, on sub mitting tho proposition to the committee of fo reign relations, ha wat overruled by a majority that body, and, findiug trom the suWejueol declarations uf Mr. Clay that ne should oppose such a measure, and other indications of hostility to tuch a motion in the house, Mr F. became convinced that the attempt would be fruitless at this session, and has accordingly abandoned hit purpose 01 bringing it forward.

FAYETTEVILLE, (K. C.) April 8. Th. f.Vnvention of the Frotestant Episcopal Church is holden in this town to - day. We are sorry to learn, that Bishop Moore, of Virginia, it I urevented irom aucnuiug mo tequeace of tevere indisposition. The following article is recommended to the special notice of our members of Congress. C0WMVS1C1T1OI. Important to Lilrrature. - We regret, extreme lv. to see that a proposition has been introduc ed into the House of Representatives for lay. inir a duty of 13 1 - 2 cents per lb. on Drawinjr, Writing and Printing Paper imported into the United States. This will have the i fleet of a total prohibi tion, and direct tendency to advance the price ot this essential article 5U to 100 per cent. The public already pay the Manufacturers f Paper in this Country a bounty of 50 to 60 per cent, in the present hicrh duties and exntn sea attending its importation, which, however, does not satisfy them. In our opinion, the great and important cause ol relocation and the diltumon of tutor. mat ion, would be essentially promoted, by al lowing the importation of both Paper and Dorks of all kinds free of duties ; when many mure of our youth, would receive the benefit of the School Funds, provided by the wisdom ot our state Legislatures. This noble liberality will be much circum scribed, by increasing the price of School Books, should Congress act to contrary to the nest and true interest of our country, as to in' crease the present high duties. Foreign pA pert can be, and are imported and told in the United states tor one third, and tome kinds for one half the price of American paper they have the advantage also, of being much more durable, and of course much better adapted lur school Books.
