WiUett, to tbe legislate.' fccaif wB sjoautdeJ with the natsre and jwtx rfrUcisuav l&csai) duty to correct the hum xjotyiim Yj a sWi explanation. By a law of this sua, fewwd or March 1781, two regiments were ordetwj to be raised on land bounties, lor the protection of tbe frontiers The same act provides, that the officers of soch corps should be entitled to locate a specific number of acres for their individual benefit Col. Willett was appointed to the command of the troops thus raised ; was distinguish - ed for the aeaU ability and success with which he acquitted himself, and thus became authorized to call upon tbe state, for the performance of its contract. This contract, however, has never been fulfilled Tbe lands, though ensured to him 1y the express terms of the statute, have never ' been received, notwithstanding repeated appli cations. Tbe 3000 acres, allcdged to ha v a been granted to him, were in lieu of the landi he re - ' ceived from congress for his general services as an officer la the regular army of tne U. Slates they were a gratuity to which he would have e. quail been entitled had he never accepted the command of the state regiments. The present ' claim, on the contrary, was not for a gratuity ; it was not an appeal to the munificence of the legislatore,but to its justice : It is predicated upon a service who1 distinct. At tbe period of ' the appointment in the state corps, his former command had terminate! Owing to the reduc. . tion of the regular regiments, he was no longor attached to the army of the U. Stater, but in common with other citizens was at liberty to engage in a new service, and avail hiuiitlf of the advantages connected with it. Such beiug tbe circumstances more than ordinary ingenuity must have been required to con found two claims,independent in their nature, varying in amount, and demanded uuder distinct character the first, a voluntary remuneration common to all the continental officers of the New - York line; the other, a contract debt founded on a special act of the legislature, due to a state officer and contingent only on the reo dering of certain public services. These servi - cos have been rendered, and the conditions of the grant more than fulfilled on the part of col. W. ; yet, strange as it may appear, the slipula - ted compensation still continues to be withheld by the legislature. A FRIEND TO JUSTICE. From the National Intelligencer, April 17. George Washington Campbell, a seoator in congress from Tennessee, has been appointed by the president, with the approbation of the senate, to be envoy extraordinary and minuter plenipo tentiary to the ceurt of Russia, in the room of Mr Piokoey, who is about to return to the Uni ted State. General James Wilkinson has been appointed by the governor of Louisiana, quarantine master for the port of New - Orleans. COAGRF.SS.

NeluM moved, that it be read a third tins. Relerrin" to a statement, yesterday laid on the tables of the house, of the names of those " paymasters of the late army ol tne uui - ted State" who bare (ailed duly to account for the monies confided to their charge. Mr. N said, there was, it appeared, an unliquidated d:bt, apparenuy flue, irom persoos w umi uo - scription alone, to the amount of three millions of dollars. Upon con vi nation with the accounting officers of tbe trr aury, be louod that they did not consider themselves authorised to briog it Btaiiut acv delmquriit until hi, accounts wrrm iinuidaied. and the balance ascertained. This settlement, cf course, was delayed by the defaulter : and tbe object of the bill was to cna Me tbe accounting olficert to coerce tbe persons so situated to come to settlement. A tier some conversation, in which Mr. Lowndes expressed his surprise at the construction which it appeared bad been' given to the existius; law : Mr. burwcll congratulated the ho jse on the introduction of this bill, so necessary to the security of public money, to the pro tection of honest claimants, and the detection of fraudulent transactions; and Mr. l . M. Nelson reaffirmed what he had already said, adding, that as tbe government preserved a coercive power over the pay masters while in office, ins'ances nad frequently occurred in which, under the present laws, ii was found necessary to keep paymasters in office, without any duty to perform merely to obtain a settlement of their accounts. The bill was ordered to be engrossed lor a third reading.

The resolution having been read, was, on mo tion of Mr. Lewis, ordered to lie ou the table, and be printed. On motion of Mr. Robertson, of Louisiana, it was Hesolved, that the president of the United . - tales be requested to obtain bom the Spanish authorities, all the records and official documents appertaining to the government of Louisiana, particularly such as concern grants and titles to land, which may have been taken out of that country at the period of its cestion to the United states. And a committee was appointed to wait no the president of the United States with the said resolution. , tank rf the United SMtiMr. IT. Nelson, from the committee on the judiciary, having reported, without amendment, the bill from the se nate to authorise the Bauk of the United States to appoint a vice - pretident, ic. A motion was made by Mr. Moore to strike out tho first sectiori of the bill. Whereu)on, Mr. Poindextcr moved to post pone the bill indefinitely. This motion gave rise to an animated debate f two or three hours, a sketch of which we shall lay before our readers iu a day or two. Che question bcin taken on the indefinite postponement of the bill, was decided as follows : yeas 85, unys Ml. co the Inli was rejected The bill from the senate in addition to the act to prohibit the introduction of slaves into the United Stales, was read a third time and pvsrd. The eii;rosed bill, to continue in force from June 1 81 'J to June IU26, theilanse of the act of 18)6, laying duties on imported cottons, wool len, Vc. was read the third time, passed, and scut to the senate lor concurrence. The bouse then resolved itself into a commit tee of the whole, Mr. II. ftrlsoo in the chair, on the general invalid pensioner's lull. This bill, as usual, occupied the committee some hours, ami produced considerable disCus - iqn, arising on motions by different gentlemen, to insert in the bill the names of various invalid soldiers, either not previously sent to the com mitlee on pensions, or reported on unfavorably ky that committee. 1'hese cases ran ly involve any new principle, and are too confined io their interest to require particular notice. j he only motion which varied materially from the general character, on this subject, was one made by Mr. Clay, to iusert the name of Charle; Lamest, an orphan boy, in the bill as a pensioner The facts in this case, as stated by Mr. ("lay were, that tbe father of tins boy, Charles Earnest, received a wound at Bladens burg which caused his death, leaving his infant ita. destitute and unpiotetted, and tbe more for lorn, as he is both deaf and dumb. To defray the expences of educating this unfortunate child at the asylum of the deaf and dumb, in Connecti cut, Mr. Clay move to authorise the sum of fiiO a year, to be expended under the curec - lion of the secretary of war ; and followed his motion by a short, but toucluog, appeal to the ;tierou4 and patriotic feelings of the bouse. I he motion was carried without opposi'ioa, aad alnrnst without a dissenting voice. Tho ciiminittte theu proceeded with the bill, on which it - busily engaged till between 6 and 7 o'clock, hen, having fone through with it, the committee rose and reported it with some amendments ti the house, and 1 be bou.c adjourned. iril 17. Mr. Trimble submitted the following resolu - I tion: I R',''l,i That the e - retarrof war be, and i h" " hereby int - uc!r.l to report to this houw. l an 'arl riai 01 ll" '"00 of corgrwt, ' wh'tficr ny cd if any, what redaction may be ' - , - r made m the military peace eslaUiihment of the United Stales, with safety to the rullic service, 1 be engrossed bill to compel delinquent pay masters to settle ineir accounts, was rru u third time, and then, on motion, laid on the la - hi. The house then took tip the amendment! of the senate to tbe bill to enforce neutrality. The bouse, on motion of Mr. forsylh, dis agreed to that amendment of tbe senate which proposed to continue in force so mutn ol tne act of 1797 as makes it punishable by tbe courts of' the United States, for a citixen to 'take, cut of the tmitt of the United Statu, a commission to serve again - t any foreign power in amity with the United Mates. Tbe remainder of the jimendmeotj of tbe senate were agreed to by the house, and were little more than verbal, with the exception of two : one of which proposed to punish Uie delivery of commissiooe from a foreign government to vessels, frc. within the United States ; the other was the rejection by the senate of the section incor porated in the bdl in this bouse, on the motion ol Mr. Clay. The section was stated by Mr. For syth, to be wholly unnecessary, since the decision of the supreme court io the case of Palmer and others, (published some time ago in the Natioual Intelligencer) parts of which Mr. r . read to the house. The bill from the senate concerning tonnage and discriminating duties, was reported by Mr. Seybert, from the committee of commerce and manufactures, without amendment, and the bill ordered to a third reading. 1 be bill from the senate fixing the compensa tion of Indian agents and factors, was reported by Mr. Southard, without amendment, and the hill ordered to a third reading. arious other business was done, which we have not an opportunity of recording, as the house had a recess for an hour and a half at tun set, and sat late in the night, on the post road and elhtr bills. from the Albany Daily Advertiser, April 18. aanke. In the house ot Assembly yester day, the Norwich bank bill was rejected by a majority or two. .Vuosefiuently a motion was made to recommit the bill to a committee of the whole which prevailed. The bill from the Senate, for establishing a bank at Cherry - Valley passed by - a majority of twenty i and the bill confirming Banking Privileges to the (,'atskill Acqueduct Association passed by a majority of 10. Gen Root made a strong effort in opposition to the banks. The first section of Doctor Sargent's bill for levying a distinct tax upon bank stock, passed yesterday in blank, by a large majority. Mr S. announced his intention of moving to fill the blank with two mills on the dollar. The Senate were yesterday occupied exclusively upon the Militia Bill. The bill postponing the Congressional Election till 1819, has passed the Senate. The militia bill yesterday passed the Senate with sundry amendments. The Senate were afterwards some time employed upon the Finance Bill, from the House of Assembly but rose and reported before any question was taken. In the House of Assembly the first section of the Norwich bank bill, (rejected Uie day before,) was passed by a majority of five, after a warm debate. LEGISLATURE OF NEW - YORK. HOUSE OK ASSEMBLY.

On Wednesday, the Ireemcn of this state assemble I in their respec live towns, to elect general officers for the year ensuiug, and representatives in the next general assembly. I rom the returns which have been received, it is feared the Howell prox has suc ceeded, and that Mr. Knight and his partisans will, for one year at least, " wield the democra cy" of Rhode - Island. .Vr. Loris, March 20. On the 18thinst. the Mississippi commenced rising, and continued so rapidly to mount tbe ti st bank, that on Saturday morn in ir avast quantity of property, consisting of flour, pork, lumber, hi eworxl anil boats in a stitte of repair, were carried oft. It appears that the present rise is occasioned by the late breaking up of the .Missouri ice. 1 lie Mississippi above salt river continues closed. SwivsAii, April 11. Military moremmls Col. Marshall, com mantling the 1st regiment in this city, received orders last evening from the Mai. ticn. of the first division, requiring him to hold Ins regi ment in readiness to march at a moment's warning, each man to be provided with 60 rounds of cartridges. The order has been com plied with through the Colonel. A similar or der, it is said, has been made on the whole state.

Daring Robbety On .Sunday evening last, some villuin or villi ins entered the store of Messrs. hie hards & llarroway, by taking the tile Irom ott tbe root of Urn house, entered tlieir counting room, tor ecu open the iron chest, and took therefrom the sum of eight hundred dollars in American gold Fire.' On Friday evening, about 10 o'clock, the Urge new bouse of Mr. Morrison, on Mrooklvn Heights, was discovered to be cn fire. We understand that this building was nearly finished, and was intended as a public house, the grounds of which having been laid out in handsome gardens tor the accrmmrxl tion of the citizens of New - York who might visit that dellghi fill and commanding em nence during the Summer months. Great exertions were made to save the building, but it Was nearly destroyed. Jf. Y. Gaz. A Fewndling. On Friday evening, Mr. Kel - l - jy, one of tne persons employed in this office, was disturbed by the cries of some person in distress s and going into the street, be disco v. ered that the noise proceeded from a basket, hich, on taking into the h oe, he found con tained a fine boy of about five mon'.h old Te clothing of the infant i u deposited at Uie bottom of the bwAet, wsthout any note or mark to' discover to whom it belonged. It was slightly covered, and drenched to the skin, during a violent shower of ram and high wind. There was sk person in Uie street at the time but that Mr. Kelly represents. that after taking up the basket, a person came up to him, and, in a careless manner, inquired i..t it rnntuined i and. on being answei ed, k uvnt off. without exnressinsr any further iiinuir. The clothinz of the child, though much worn, is saia xo oe oi ruuu iiwii, and fashionably made. The infant appears to have heen harahlv treated, as it goes to any person who will take it and appear to be contented witn us new projectors. lev has a child, which she is now nursing, and the little foundlintr partakes, with much cheer - fulness, of the nourishment onereu Dy us new fi - inil. It is very strange and unnatural, that after keeping a handsome and interesting baby for five months, that tne parent or guai oiancoum thus have exposed it to perish in the streets, .liirincr an inclement night, or to be found by any person whom chance may have directed to the spot It could not have been want, f r, on application to the guardians of Uie poor, measures would have been xaxen io pruwuc for it. The child is well taken care ot, by Mrs. Strontr. who resides in the same house ; and those who have a curiosity to see it, or who may possibly identify its parents, can call at No. 00 llarman - streeu Jai. star. i THIRD WARD. ftV The Federal Republican electors of the third Ward, arj requested to imet ut Reynold's No. 5 Coiirtlandt street, on Monday evening next, at half past seven o'clock, to sc - lect a committee of nomination for charter officers for the said ward.
