The editor is indebted to the friendly attention of a respectable gentleman of this city for Ihs following interesting extracts, which are from a source on which lull reliance may be placed. LA UUAYKA, 20th Feb, 1818. I write a few lines under the most awful feel ing! and apprehensions. Morillo is destroyed or proved coward or trailer. The province 11 lost ! The patriots fait advancing on Caraccat. and no men to defend it. The greatest seen of distress and coofuijon imaginable prevails, all orders Imt, ahd thousands of people crowding on the shore and wharf to embark with whatever of most value they can take with them Yesterday the scene of confuiion commenced, and continues at this tune with increased alarm the wharf and thore covered with eoods of all descrintioni. anu no postiotiiiy ol pelting them off. An em - . 1 - 0 . . r bargo nu been on lor a week cast, and no ves sel permitted to sail. At this moment nothine can be done, every one it latins thtir own livei. and every thine elie they can. There are seve ral foreigners here, none of whom will remain, and they all have more or lest property that will be lost, u it is the opinion of us all that no prop erty iouou will be respected, and they do not consider even their lives safe. To add to the dismay, last nieht a severe ihock of an earthquake wu bit. The heart sickens With the scene of distress in every shape. A very high sea renders it dangerous for a imall boat to pass, and the king't officers have all cauocs eugaged embark - ins stores anu people. 4 o'clock I'. M. The dUtress increases 1 all alarm and confusion s thousands of men, women ind chilOrea on the wharf and beach, endeavor - iul to yet on the tea immeniely hich. and many bnati overset and lost in the surf, and women and children Immoried iu the waves. Nothing positive Is known where Jtforillo is, or now near the patriots are; but the cry 11 iu all mouths, " they are coming !" Caraccas is nearly deterted, m this place will soon be. No goodi, except some of tho most valuable, can be em barked, and they much iujured. The earthquake last nieht hai had a viiible effect on the sea ; it is very hih. I lryt time will be allowed to get u.i lutfvi v ma unset ituiu uinauwun", uj wuom the ihori lined lay with thousands. Two Americans, one Englishman and myself, (who all have property here, and find it impossi ble to embark it) nave concluded on remaining and waiting the issue. Tile greatest danger is apprehended from the blacks, who, so toon ai the town will have been deterted, it is feared, will commence a general and indiscriminate robbery anu piunurr anu pernaps worse. We shall occupy one houe, and raise the A msrkan flag as some protection I have little hopes of saving any proiierty. 5 o'clock, P. M. The embarkation continue! with increased terror and confuiion 1 200 to 300 dollars are offered to a boat for one trip with passengers, and the governmrut have just stove and thrown into the sea a quantity ol gunpowder that they were unable to embark. At present there are four of the fleet in the hart - or, and a large number ol merchant vessels, happily for tne people, who are crowdiag their decks. Half past 6 o'clock, P. M. Glorious news for the Spaniards An express has just arrived. by which we hare news of a terrible action being lougbt, in which Morillo was victorious. The newt has converted the scene of dismay to joy, andaa!uteis now firing; all are overjoyed; particulars not yet known : to - morrow we will have them, and I will ndviie. Suffice it to say, it is lucn as 10 completely restore tranquility LA Gl'AYRA, Feb. 26. 1818 Referring to my several letters herewith, I havetoadiise thU the embargo probably will be raised to - morrow,' (which has been on lixteen days.) This accounts for all my lettersacwming by one opportunity. Toe sudden aud great alarm we have been under hai, in some measure, lubiuled, and en bles me to advise so far ai that we are permitted to know, the result of the late actions. Gen. Morillo with the principal parto'his army wu posted in Calabosa, about 45 leagues from Caraccas. The patriot chiefs Bolivar and Tias formed a unction near St. KernauJo, beyond Calabosa, and marched to attack Morillo, who abandoned Calnton, with a vie w of falling back on and iho - le - tin: Caraccat. In his retreat he was attack ed by the patriots, and in two days and nights, seTen different action ensued ; Morillo always on uis defensive and falling back. In the last en gagement the Spaniards claim a decisive victory, nsvin; Ue - troye.1 the cre. - ter part of their opponent. Rut ne details are yet made known : the on omn Kies, no doubt severe. 4mce the action Mrrill.. has occupied Villade Cura, this s.drJClabo.a : DJ the patriots are said to bae occupied th latter.

F rom the Albany Daily Advertuer of Saturdmt. , Imnarfcatt Proceedirt.U will be creolleeted that some time in February, a bill passed the Senate, and was sent to the House for concurrence, making an appropriation for the repairs of the court room, in the Capitol. A few davs subsequently, a bill was alio sent from the Senate to the Assembly, for raising money by tax, for building a goal in the county of Madison When the first bill was taken up in the house. General Root objected to its passage, on the ground that it was a money bill, and that it is Uie exclusive privuege of the Assembly to originate all bills of this description. The bill was referred to a select com mittee, an Mr. tlackley, the Chairman, some time since made a report, concluding with a re solution In conformity with the opinions advanced bv Uenerol Koni. and sunnorted br some other gentlemeu. The other bill was disposed of iu a similar way. On Thursday, the resolution and report were taken up by the Assembly, and after an able dis cussion, agreed to, and the bills were sent back in llie Senate, with the resolution informing then of the determination of the House. Messrs. Meck - !ry. Root and others, advocated the resolution; ami Messrs. Duer. Oaklrv and Edwards opposed. The resolution of the House wu referred to a select committee of the Senate, and Mr. Van Buren, the chairman, yesterday made a report whirli he concluded by offering three resolutions, asserting in strong and positive terms, an equal rich! on the part of the Senate, to originate all bills whatsoever. The third resolution declares in effect, that the Senate will not act upon any mo ney lull, or a bill for the appropriation or money, until the house recede from their position, or un - till the difference be adjusted. The debate in the Senate was able and ingenious. No gentleman opposed the resolutions directly ; but Mr. Skin ner contended that there was a distinction between lulls for raisins; revenue, and those for appropriate ing it. The former he thought it the privilege of the House to originate. Messrs. Van VecFiten, Van Buren, Young, Skinner nnd Ogden took parts in uie uicion. ine two brsi resolutions pass - ed unanimously, ami the third with but one dis senting vole. Cimrt of Errori. The House of Assembly non - concurred with Ihe Senate, in their amendments of Tuesday, to the bill authorizing a special session of Ihe Court of Errors in September next ; and iheSi nnte have agreed to the original amendment of the House, directing the Court to bold their sessiou at the Capitol in Albany. From the AUxmy Argvt of Friday. The three first sections of the bill to abolish 1m prisonmcnt for debt, reported by Mr. Van Beuren nave passed the Senate ; ihe first clause, which tlccnlHl ihe principle of the bill, was carried urntui mouslv.
