That impartiality by whkh we profess always to be guided, (enf reed by a particular rtquett from Albany,) lejuiret us to republish the fol - . lowing trticle from the Daily Advertiser. COL. WILLETT'S CLAIM. To Ihe Editor of the Albany Daily Advertiser. tir A correspondent of the Evening? Post. who ktfbacribes himself " A Frieud to J uilk e," has undertaken to correct the statement which appeared " in soma of th newspapers," (and probably originated with you,) on the subject of col. YVUieiri rocent application to the legula - ture. The writer Drofostins? to be well acnuaint ed with the nature and Justice of the claim, de clares that he deemed it a duty to remove the " erroneous impressions" which the article .m question was calculated to produce." Out, sir, if I am not altogether deceived in Uie view which was presented of the case In the assembly. i am very comment mat trie explanation" at tempted by a r ntudto Justice" m at once imperfect and deceptive. It is indeod true that by the law of March, 1781, two regiments were ordered to be roi'ml wpoo land bonrrtics, for the protection cf the frontier. ;' that Uie a, t provided, that the ofli - t i. cenaiacouOitioosnot mentioned by Mr. Coleman's corretpondent, be entitled to lora - e a specific number of acres, for their individual benefit;" that "Col. Willetl was apnointed, to the common.! n .r.i.. troops rtus r.u,d," but on. 0I th. regSmenti I, U rsiW, by virtu, of the act ; and that h. With which he acquitted himielf." U ' denied however, that he ever " becam. authoriied," ai m unw uy inn r ntnti to J ustice," to call upon uie lira lor me performance cf its con irci." or umi - loeiaiius were uuured to him trj uw cmrw mum 01 uie liatUte," except Upon a cnuncy which Lever hardened. This, sir, will be plain to the understanding of wnj uu vno wui iaee ine trouble to look into the law, and at the same time examine th. proceedings of the council of appointment ewwequent pM it. The council were authnnr, i to p yejnf the officers to the rrimeels directed to be in to a raised, aiaaeAraw vacancies shaedd happen, Is mpjim oUmts but it was dacUred, "thsta lisulseant - catoa! ao1 a major, should not U " eomeiiisssiielfd," enUI a number of men equal to two - thirds of the regiment should be matured. Warrant wr to be issued in the first in - stance to the coeMdsued officers, to enlist the men ; and if salhciant number should not be raised before the first of A o gust next eJUr the passing of lb act, the Governor was authorised to form th. aua raised, icto aa independent corps a he shoald think proper. The faith of the fete was then ctedred to the ofiVers, non - com misskaed omcers aed pri rales, composing tuck regiment r eerps ; that the legislature would grant to such omceis as shoald be " fmmuiun - mled.n and to such aun - commiseioned oflkers and privates, who should eufiet ie the said regiments, and who shoald continue to serve for three sears, unless sooner dismissed or discharged, and to the legal representatives of such as shook! di while m service, certain specified quan tities of unappropriated lands ; and such pro - vmoos were made for the locations and sur vey of the lands, as enabled any person entitled to them to locate under certain restrictions and reservations, such lands as ha should select to be granted to him. The land thus granted was declared H to be m lien of every bounty allow ance, half pay or emolument whatsoever, tn the part of the state" the levies to be raised under the act were to be armed, accoutred and paid, at the expense of the United States and mastered by such person and in such manner as Congress, or lbs commander in chief of the army of the United States should direct. The men not baviner been raised or mustered within the Ume limited, a subsequent act ex tended the period of enlistment fur the pur pose of enabling the officers to receive thrir commissions and to entitle them to the tountv, in case the men were recruited within the enlarged term i and in May, 1784. an act was passed " for granting certain lands promised to be given as bounty lands by laws of this state. by which it was in substance enacted that whenever any person entitled to grants of land by virtue of the law referred to, should produce a certificate from the surveyor general to certain commissioners therein nmed that such person was entitled to the quantity described intheeei'tificate t those commissioner were required to isue letter patent to such person lor Uie land. From this view of the statutes, it is clear that the bountv of unaliDronriated land could be claimed nly by such officers who should be entitled to receive their commission - 1 witlif in tn e several times limited for enlistments, and who should continue to serve for the pe riods fiom time to time prescribed, unless sooner dismissed or discharged, and that the field ofheers could not be "eammiHitmatcd" until a number of men equal to two thirds of a regiment had been mustered. It ia equally clear that if the requisi; e number of men hud been mustered, and Col Willett had thereup on received nis rommimon as commandant either of a regiment, or of an independent corps formed from the men actually mustered the manner contemplated by the act he would immediately have been authorized to have located the lands which he should have elected to have grsnted to him ; and upon ex hibiting the certificate of the surveyor general the commissioners, he would have been immediately entitled to receive his letters pa tent. The question therefore naturally presente itself why did he not make his location file description of the land selected by him, or obtain his certificate in the manner prescribed by the laws ? A reference to the proce dines of the council of Appointment may perhaps enable us to answer the quention, anil to shew upou wnat foundation the claim ol Col. Willett rest. It appears from the minutes of the Council, that on the 23lh of April, Marinus Willett, F.sq. was appointed Lieut, Col. com' mandant of one, and John M'Kinttry, Esq. of the other, of the reiriments to b raitrdon boun ties of unappropriated land. The other field officers, the captains and subalterns, were also at the same time appomttd for both. On the list of .March, 1783, it seems, that ' the govern or laid before the council the returns of their levies, together with such other information as he ha I received on the subject, in order, as the said levies did not amount lo a nffictent number to compote a rrjrimrnf on the continental etlabluh - ment, that it might be determined by the council which of the ofictn vtre. entitled to commissions, and that the governor might be enabled to form luem into an independent corps agreeably to the directions of the law." It was therefore rerolv rd, that ret uns should be made to the council by the muster - matter, and such other persons as had received aud muttered any of the men re cruited i and that the "commanding officer" of the said levies should lay before them " a descriptive roll, noting deaths, desertions, and other caiunllies." On the 57th of June, the re turns were made to th council, and the follow ing is a literal transcript fain their minutes of th preceedingi, which took place upon that oc cation. " Whereas it appear to the Council from the return of the muster master, Jacob Lan sing; that not any of tbe officers appointed to recruit the two regiment on bounties or unappropriated Ian I, have enlisted and mustered the number of men which would have entitled them to commission, agreeable to the act of the legislature, in that case made and provid ed, (captain James Cannon, lieutenant Pliny Moore and Rial Bingham, who have duly en listed the compliment asvpned them, excepted ) And whereas, the oflicer of the levies raised for the defence of the state, who on inch failure was appointed to r. emit for the said regiment, Aor mrreattd the number of recru u of nai l regiment, so as that the same are equal to .ire rompamet on the continental establishment, and it is become necessary that tlif same be arranged into a corps and officered scconlingly." "Kesolved, therefore, That Job Wright. Jonathan Hiercy, Peter H Tierce, Aim eon Newell, and James Cannon, be captains of the said five companies : That Abraham Ten Lyck, rliny Moore, Rial Hingrnm, Josiah Kichard - son ami John Thornton, be lieutenants of Uie said companies : And that lchabod Andrew, Witter Jolin.wn, Jesse Hubble, John C. tliaver ami Gideon Cowlct, be entijjns of the said five companies : That Moses Willard be surgeon's mate, and T.lias an Uunsclmtten inn. Esquire, major of the said corps and their commissions respectively, bear date ti e lirsl day ol Janua ry last, except those of the lieutenant Moore and Bingham, and of capt. Cannon, which an to bear date at the time when they had com pleted their respective compliments of men to entitle them thereto. Thus, then, it appear 1 That but three of the officer, alio had been appointed bv warrant to recruit for the two regiments, ever enlisted the number of men requisite to entitle them to their commis sions and to the bounty in unappropriated lands. 2 That although those officers, who upon the failure of other in recruiting that number. ere appointed for the purpose, had inrreated trie number of recruits yet the levies actually raiea ana mustered by tbe onicer oi ooui regiment, were only equal tore eompaniei (less than - two third of a regiment") on the wmuntmai eslablisbraent : 3. That they were arrinfrd into a corps un - utr ,,IC command ot a major, at which time u'eocr were first ' nmmunonrd," and that the commissions of all exceptinr those who had become entitled to the bounty, were dated after the expiration of that period, within which the law limited their right to obtain It is evident, therefore, that CO. Willett meet have acted, and received pay from the United - gUtesesrhisepperaAsKfu. . Ilecoaldaot bave received his cewansrien, or have bare entitled to Uie bounty, oflinappropriated mad, because the levies under his command never amoumed to ire lairi a rrguaen," sad consequently thr is do ground whatsoever, for the Leotwe castapon the Assembly, by M a Friend to Justice," or for impulia: to the stale, at he has done a faithless disregard to the fulfilment of its con That the merits and service or Col. Willett entitle him to the gratitude of his coootry, no man living caa'denv but his appeal was made to the iostice of the leeislatore. not to its favor. He bed already partakes largely of that bounty winch mat extended 10 ail me ocicers anu mi - diers of the line of tliii state, in ti e continental service at the close of the war, a gratuity which was granted not in lieu of the lands which he received from Congress, as "a Friend to Justice" reDresents but. in addition to them ; and to have allowed his recent claim as a matter ol favor, would have beta at ooce to hate admitted an equal right to a double portion of the public botintv. ia ever oflicer who udoo the reductioo ol tne corps in wriicft lie was nrst couiruisMoaeu, was fortunnte enough to be recalled - uito uai scr vice ; nod to have said that Col.

A FRIES U TO TRUTH Extract of a letter written by a gentlemen in Buenos Ayres, to hi Irieud iu this city, uaied Feb. 7. 1818. . As far as I can ascertain at present. Valparai so is blockadod by a frcale and Hire, small res sell, and another vessel cruiziu; between that port and Coiuimbo. Two Engliih vessels have recently forced the blockade and rot into Valpa raiso, and done well. They had munition! of war and dry roods. The last mads from Chili state, that irom 3 to 4000 troops had embarked at Lima, and suppos ed to be destined to rsuilorre I alrahuano mat lb Indians in the cause of the royalists had forc ed O'Hijftpns (whoe force consisted of about T500 men) to retire from belore that place, and that ban Martin was Dear forming a junction with O. H. with a force ol 5000 men. Talcabuano has always remained in possesion of the royalists, and is said to be a strong place ituated about six degrees to the southward of Valparaiso. It is conjectured that the patriots will attack them before they are relieved. The Chilian government have recently made a communication to the government of Buenos At res, slatiug the danger that rrssels will mcur ou the coast, and recommends to th consuls and merchants of this place, to send their merchan dise tter land to them, ia which case they promised a reduction of duties. The royalists have bco rapturing som En glish vessels on the other side of the continent, and a British frigate tailed from her to Lima on that account ; the captain of which, it is stated, was cavilearly treated by that government, and the prise nut nilored. Extract of a letter to a gentleman in Baltimore, dated St. Pierre;, Mart. April J. " The former Gazette which I ten to Wash ington, contains an ordinance permitting French resielt to bring dour from the United states un til the end of October next ; consequently will be prohibited in American bottoms after the 2Iit imt the Ume granted by proclamation. Other reports are in circulation, that may materially affect our commerce, for instance, that the ordinance issued at Guadaloupe, is to b followed by imilar regulations here ; that, orders all foreign ers, naturalised or not, to desert from all and every kind of commerce in 3 months. 3d, that a perton is appointed through whom all American cargoes are to be told, and for which he is lo receive one per cent on t he cargo, whether he sells it or not, in case it is sold. Now, as iu mo t case, our captains do not speak the language; they are compelled to employ some per sou to do their business, and a choice certainly ought to be left to themselves. If forced into the hands of a privileged or patented broker, he ditpotet to hit favorites and accommodates them at tho expense of the proprietor, or at least be hat the power to do so. That this last regula tion will take place, I have good reason lo be lieve; at soon as it does, or I can obtain positive information, our government shall be advued that the commerce may be informed." tx tract of a letter from a gentleman on board the United States ship Congress, to his frieud in Westchester, dated Harbor of Rio Janeiro, Jan. 30, 1813, " We arrived here on the e - - euing of the 21iih, after a long passage of 55 days, in which we ei peri.nced our full share of head winds and calm ; and had not the good fortune to speak a tingle American veitel.

We are indebted to a gentleman who arrived in town yesterday, in the Mermaid, from Si. Thomas, for a hie Of the ist. 1 homas I idenda,' to the 3d imt. These papers contain tome account of late military events on the Spanish Main, but nothing important further than we have received from other sources. The bat'.les which took place near Calaboza, Feb. 20, ap pear not to have been decisive, although it is evident that the advance of Uie army of Bolivar was checked, and the alarm which had ditiuietd the royalists at Cararcas and Laguira subsided. March 5, it is stated that Uohvnr was still at Calabosa, and that Paez, with 4000 men, was with hun. Morillo, with Moralttaud 1opei, at the head of 400 men was at Ortix, near Villa de Cura. Calrada, another royalist general, with 1000 men, was about three leagues from Cala - bora. Another battle was expected. Thero is no account of any military movemeats subse quent to this date, but the inhabitants of Laguira and Caraccas wero agah in great alarm. This ttat. of things give an additional probability lo the report mentioned in Monday's papei', received via Guadaloupe, of successes gained by Bolivar about the end of March. A letter received by Mr. Hooper from his cor respondent at Gibraltar, dated March 14, mentions that our squadron was still up the Mreights, and that no intelligence had been recc'u cd from it.

The first is to Pru - sia. of 3,000,000 sterling ; this may, we believe, be toidered as nearly sctUod. The second, to France, is in a more early t - ige : its amount much larger, be - ins abrut 34.000.000 sterling : and its object is to enable that country lo liquidate the claims of its creditors, and pay up the contributinui ; the consequence ol which will be the removal ol the army of occupation.
