Tou have no substitute in this htart There it none to occupy youf place to my seeking eye; even the arT"cl innate attentions of an amiable cousort are insufficient to supply the chasm in my bosom, but leave me uoiati fitd.

I have but one mother 1 and no variations of place or cir cumstances can remove her from my siht. Heaven impressed her image on soul, and time has established there as its native and legitimate sphere. By a refin ment of cruelty, indeed, we may he separated 0.1 earth, and I at well at yourself may be doomed the victim of an unjust and malignant spirit of persecution ; but in a better world our congenial spirits would rush to meet each other, where no envious nor hating friends can interfere to impede the pleasures which now from the fountain of filial and maternal love Bach sentiments as these naturally arise out of I the conlcmpl; Iwus of my situation at Una mo ment. , . chouKi it be the pleasure of Providence that I survive the hour of approaching danger, may at some future period be endued with pow to rojitore you to that situation which you were formed to embellish, but in which the jealousies of inferior minds woukl not suffer yon to remain. 11 ut il nnall - wne decree should sum mon me from this sphere of auxiout apprchen. tion, not for myself, but for my mother, n pang of terror snoots across my wilderej brain eveu Ihon, however, my last prayer would be to heaven to gift you with that sublime fvclin - r of pious resignation, which would leach you to bow sub missive to the chastening stroke of our common Faihf r, and to console your afflicted heart with anticipation of our re - nniou in a world where folicity is unimpaired, and to which malice is in - aduiistable. Believe me, my adored mother, I fear less to ethan to live; the prospect of protracted ex istence is so blended a ilh dangers and difficulties, shadowed with clouds and uncertainties, so replete with anxieties and apprehensions, that I shrink Irom the contemplation of it, aud fly refuge even to the probability of my removal so joyless an inheritance. The pngo of history has determined, that happiness it not tho possession ol thoto who move in tho lofty circles which my birth entitles me to look. I cannot e lor ail exception in my favor.

I hap. pen to be acquainted with the following facts, and will thank you to give thftn publicity. In 1813, when it was the faihion to engage in tho race of popularity and patriotism, some mrnibers of our honorable corporation entered among the number. The afTiir of the Chesa peake interested the public mind, and afforded a ine opportunity for a display. Accordingly an imponng resolution wat brought forward iu Sep timber of that year appropriating 000 dollars out of the city funds at a donation to the infant children of capt. Lawrence, and iu case of the death of either of them, before coming of age, tht whole Co go to the sarviror ; this money wa; by the resolution to be invested in the hands of he commissioners of the sinking fiaud, with di rection to see it carried into effect. The reso lution "passed unanimously; was unanimously approved of and applauded, and has unauimotly been suffered to repose in quiet neglect ever since, undisturbed and uuthougbt of; in the mean time, the interest, amounting to 700 do'lars has been lost to the children. The resolve ap - ptars on the minutes of the common council splendid monument of the munificence and pa Tiotism of the city of New - York, erected with' out one dollar's exnence.

General Pultuam and general I Harlem In the Port f elio, a monthly magasine ol reputa uon published m Philadelphia, tor March liiitt, an article purporting to be an account of the bat tie of Bunker - hill, on the 1 7th June, 1775, writ ten and signed by Henry Dearborn, for tome time secretary of war of the United States, by the 'appointment or Mr. Jefferson, and subte quenlly by the nomination of Mr. Madison, com. mandcr in chief of the armies of the United States. 'I he object which has drawn forth this rtteran into the field of literature a field in which mi th - r genius, education, nor habit, appear to have qualified him to gather laurels it neither more nor less than to set his countrymen and the world right in their estimate of the character of major general Putnam, so well known throughout hi whole life, and emphatically so during the war ot independence, as aa officer of distinguished bravery and merit. Io truth, it is to establish the fact, that that man, whose name has been considered synommous with courage, eat a coward. Had this attempt been made immesliatrlj after the battle took place, or even during the life time of the gentleman iu question, it would have borne at least a more decent appearance Ueneral Putnam himself would have enjoyed an opportunity of vindicating his own reputation irom the attack or a subordinate officer, and ol appealing - ifneceasary, to the testimony of those ol bis brave and patriotic companions in the dan' gers and glories of th?t memorable day. But, to find a slander propagated at the end of nearly forty - three years, when not enly the subject of is, but almost all his fellow officers on that occa sion, are slumbering in the crave, it truly matter ol astonishment. Gent. Dearborn commeoces hit account in the fbllowbg manner : On the IGth of June, 1775, it wat determi ned that a fortified post should be established at or near liunkert hill. A detachment of the armv was ordered to advance early in the evening "of that day, and commence me erection 01 a strong worK on the heights in the rear of Charlestown, at that time called Breed's Hill, but from its proximity to ounner's mil, the battle hat taken its name Irom the latter eminence, which overlooks it. 44 The work wat commenced and carried on under the direction of such engineers at we were able to procure at that time. It was a square redoubt, the curtains of which were about 60 or iu icci in exieni, wim an entrenchment or n r . ... breastwork, exlendinz fiAy or sixty feet from the uonnern angio towards viystick river. " In the course of the uisht the rainuarts had been raised to Iho height of six or sex - en Icet, with a small ditch at their base, but it was yet a rude and vcrv imperfect state. Bcin? in full view from the northern heights ol Boston, it was discovered by the enemy at toon as daylight appeared, and a determination wat imme diately formed by gon. Gage, for dislodging our troops from thit new and alarming position.' This is certainly elanriue slizhllv over a bold and hazardous adventure Even the name of the officer who commanded the detachment, is not mentioned. The reason for this omission possibly may have been, that il trot Gen Putnam who, with a small body of troops, in one of the shortest nijtits in the year, in a most exposed situation, and in full view by day - light of the British troopj in Boston, aud but at a verv small distance from a 60 gun ship and a frigate, threw me worm on KunKer't Hilt, well knowing that the inevitable consequence must be, an at - lacs: in me morning. it was this detachment. who had been at hard labour thro' the whole night, that Putnam commanded in the battle, ami wno, notwithstanding their fatigue and exhaustion, fought with great bravery. Gon. Dearborn then states, that Starke's resi - ment, to ukielt he belonged, wat stationed at Med - lord, about four miles distant. About 10 o'clock in the forenoon, Stark received orders to march. I he necessary preparations for action, such as receiving ammunition, ic. were not completed iinui 1 o'ciock. r. iVI. at which hour he moved towards the scene of action. At Charlestown Neck, he says, tbey found two regiments halted, in consequence of the heavy fire from two Brit ish ships. Stark's regiment, however, moved on with a deliberate pace, Au oirncompany being in jronr. lie then adds When we reached the ton of Bunker't Hill, where Gen. Putnam had taken bis station, the regiment halted for a tew moments lor the rear to come up." II thro gives hit areoimt of the bailie, in which Slark't rrpimtnl it made la figure very brilliantly auer detailing 1110 events aud the result of the engagement, he says : " When the troops arrived at the summit ol Bunker's Hill, we found general Putnam with nearly as many men as had been engaged 111 the battle; notwithstanding which no measures bad been taken for rein Ion inj us. nor was there a shot fired to recover our retreat, or any move ment made 10 check the adiam e ot the enemy to this height ; but on the coutrary, gen. Putnam rode off with a number of tpudet and irk axa in hit handt, and the troops that had remain ed with him mnctite, during Iho whole of the action, although within a few hundred yards ol the battle ground, and no obstacle to impede their movement but muskrt ballt.n It would seem to be intended by this account of the battle, that Stark's regiment and auother small regiment irom . Hampshire, commando! by col. Keid, were all the troops on our part that were cngagod 111 the battle, aud that een. rutnani, and his detachment, were much at their ease throughout the day, without having tiiken any part in the conflict ; for gen. Dearborn says " nntnltulroopiarrivrdatthttummit of Bun ker Hill, we found gen. Tutnam with nearly as many men as had been enticed in the battle" I his was alter the battle was over, for be ad'ls. that "gen. Putnam rode off, with a number of padea and pirkaxes i i his hands, aud the troom that had remained with hint inactive during the u - hole 0 tne action." trom the manner in which this statement is made, it Would also term that this wat tht Jirtt time the troops who had been engaged had met with gen. Putnam aud hit men. And yet, before the battle began, he says, u When we reached the top of Bunker's Hill, where gen. Putnam had taken hit tlatiim, the regiment halted for a few momentt for the rear to 0 me up." It it certainly very extraordinary, after Stark't regiment had once joiued Putnam, that the former should have gone iuto the thickest of the engagement, and left the latter, with his troops, behind, on the top of the hill, with their 41 spades aod pick - axes" in their J hands, without an attempt to reinforce them, or to cover their retreat. Again" In the battle of Bunker Hill," says Gen. Dearborn, he (Gen. Pu.nam) took Dost on the dieting toinudt tharletlon Aeck, vhere I' sose Aim on horttbark at ire pasted on to Bnrd't Hill, vilh Col.

This sway all be rrcijticiUble for aught we know but is oul.t first to be written o er in order to render it comprehensible. How Gen.
