It is very eviJtut that the , 1 chorch now proposed will be entirely under - . preebyterian influence. . Other denomination iv can have and ought to have no objection to this, ' - 'provided it is dot expected that they will patron - ' ise it bv their contributions. I here would be , aa inconvenience, no doubt, ia the church being supplied by variom pastors of different religious pinion, if oat of different mode of worship . Tbvre can be no objection, therefore, that the re - ; , spectable and tealou denomination of presbyteri - . am houl J endeavor to erect an house of wonhip, ' where the seamen who attend will be under the Sastoral care of a Presbyterian clergyman. ut it may be expedient that other religious dt - nominations should have houres of worship for mariners; and therefore it will be proper tut ' them to keep their funds in rett rve. Hpircpa - . bans in particular, enjoy peculiar advantages tor th religioui in ruction and the public ileio - tions of seamen, to their Book of Common Pray. er 1 and powibly it may bethoirduty to emulate their Preibyterian brethren, and to erect a ; CAurcA, where th mariners, who are so disposed, may enjoy Cpucopal niinutrations. Oq this . account, it ought not to be expected that they hnull contribute to the erection of the propos - cd edifice. A. b. COMMUNICATION. Mr. Coleman Among the mott alarming e - vilf, which have been the result of the system pursued for several years paitby thoie who ad - ' ministered the government of oat state, is the ' Unlimited multiplication of offices ia almost all case where the number is sot restricted bv tbe constitution or U10 laws.

Yesterday arrived here schooner Sophia, See - ly, and Sisters, Allen, both from Halifax, by these vessels, we have received paper to the I ith ultimo, from which we have made some ex tracts relative to the late negotiations between Spain and tbe United States. The Americans appear to be much gratified at the prospect of war between the two countries, wnicii, tu ail probability, will ere long be realised. The American slooo Alert, caiit. 6now, which sailed from New - York, on the 3ht December last, with carso of provisions, Ac. for the relief of the sufferers by fire, in this town, arrived vesterdav. Her carso consists of about 500 bag bread, 815 barrel flour, 30 barrel pork, 4 hales and some pieces of clotbtug, and a quantity of lumber. The schr. Assistance, on board which part of ihe Money sent from New - Yoik and New. Brunw ck, f..r tbe relief of the sufferers by Fire in this town was slapped, being wrecked in St Mvy't Buy, and there being reason to suspect from the accounts which reached this place, that part of the sum had been embezzled by the Crew or people resident there, a schr. was immediately fitted out with aparty of sea - men and marines from the Flag ship (by direction of Ilia Kxcellencv the Governor, who most handsomely came forward on ihe occasion) accompanied by aparty of Peace Officers, and dispatched in aearch which vessel we are informed arrived at Et. Mary's on Tuesday last. In the mean time the remainder of the crew left that place, and arrived here on Sunday nieht. when an active inquiry by the Matr rates took place, and we are informed upwards of 3001 of the money has been recovered. t hree persons belontrinij to the Assistance have been committed, char ed with being prin cipals or accessaries in this nefarious transaction. We are led to hone from the prompt mea sures which have been adopted by the proper Authorities, that the whole amount will be eventually forthcoming. American sloop Alert, ? it. John's Ha hour, 4lli May 1813. S Te the iuuibUantt of St. Mn'i, I deem it my duty to make known to the in habitants of this town, the cause of my delay wrb the careo sent them from new - York. I sailed f om that City on the 3 1st December last. In the course of a few days we en - ounUred a heavy ir:ile r,f wind lost one man overboard, froze another in a most aliocRind manner split our sail, and were compelled put into Pope's harbour in distress. While was us.nj; every possible exert.;n to p;ct re fitted with sails, expecting1 every moment to tie frozen up, the mute of the vessel, John II Clement, Uiy; ther with some of the' cruel in habitants of that place, I presume, cu. the jot ly boat adrift, and committed other depredations ; and on the night previous to the intend ed sai.nig of tbe vessel, cut both our cable, as we lay at anchor in the harbour. The vessel then drifted on si. ore, but there being littie wind, ht - was got off again without sustaining vv material damage flu conductof the inhabitants save me ttrnns reo?on to tear for the a!tty of the vessel and cargo ; I therefore travelled 30 miles through woods and now. at II, most inclement stsasttu. to procure men to lrm the vessel out of Uie harbour, as no pcrsun would do it there at any price, ailhoun most ol the people were idle. While I was absent, the inhabitants raked th small anrbor and mooted the vessel to a tge wharf, near a ledae o rocks, whete the must have iminciliiitcly billed, hud she gone ashore. I lie captain, who was most ol Ihe puae unwell, and at this time very sir k, with n black man, were the only persons i n board, and finding the vessel dragging, and the oily mean of saving her wa to hp the cable and put to ea, did so itnmedia'elv, but next day the vessel grounded on uikcomhe's Bar, where she .i maiiied three days, till the deck load was discharged, when she was brought to Mary Joseph, wIm re the ice ' closed her in the arr.e li'?ht. Tfctse circum - J stances, with he d winds and meeting the Gulph ice since leavine Mary Joseph, has caused my unpleasant and long delay, I on Rssure you I felt extremely anxious torlelivtr the cargo in a season most likely to he wnnte.l, but misfortune deprived me of that satisfaction. I cannot close fhi statement without expressing to you the kind and liumine treatment I received from the government at Halifax, who dispatrfted the revenue cutter to my relief, the morai.nt it was possible for her to proceed with safety, and supplied me with a ail, anchors, Arc.

UEMTLidflilf, It would lie impossible iu ft mere vote of thanks passed at a public meeting, to give full utusnuice to tint Voludie ef grateful sentiment') with which our heails are overflowing, and which your druiitereJ bruetolenee so lou - lly tie - maud. We are therefore uaturaily impelled by our own feeling, to give a wider scope to that warmth of gratelnl expre'si n, which ouht ever to characterize tho recipients of a bounty so gratuitous and tpoutaneous as that which you have beon made the channel of coaiuiunicaliou to us. We discover in this kind act of the citizens of New - York, all the peculiar features which mark the chanty ol christians. Bound to the objncls of your benevolence by no tie, tncial, political or commercial, tint separated from us even by natural boundaries, von yet beheld u your neighbour, because yon - beheld us in distress. Laying aside all sruse of past auimosity, consigning to oblivion every jealou distinction ol sentiment ana party, opoa the broad and com mon ground ol our uature you hasten to our uc cour. I he lecliugs which tbe view of our mis fortunes excited in your mind, were not check ed in their on 'iu, hut immediate effect was riv en to their teudencie ; and you had not only compassion on us but you helped ut. Your lib erality has bceu cordial and eflectual. There 1 no appearance of uarsiuiunv connected with it ; but you have fully evinced yourselves to be cneeriuii vers, and promptly adopted such mea sure a appeared best calculated to administer speedy relief, t our benevolence ba for it dis tioruihin; features, impartiality, activitv.cheer fulness and perseverance ; and we only express the sincere feelings of our heart, in savinz we fronsider it no less honourable to you as men. thao as citizens of an enlightened nation. Bu if it be true, that, it it mm Mined Io girt Hum to rrrcii'r," you are then already blessed io thu deed of mercy, far beyond any recompense that can be derived irom the expression of our fee lie, though truly irratefiil praise. We are sorry that a erie of adrerse events prevented the earlier arrival of the Alert, in ?t. John's, tut onr regret docs not altogether pro ceed irom more sciiuii coneiderations : we are aware of the feeling of disappointment which you, no doubt, have already experienced on this occasion, we are convinced, that huaianity Irke yours would have been highly gratified by the speeuy arrival aud rpphentton of your bounty. We beg leave, however, U awure you, that the protected period of its arrival; has not made it to us lea valuablo or lets welcome. . No, gentlemen, though your bounty has reached us at a e ason when it ii liktly to be combined with a variety of aHstanca from other quarters, yet it w.ll be seen at one ghuice, the weight of your individual boon, in the common scale of charity i such, that every minJ mu. - t gratefully ieei us suomauuai preponderance. Many ol u - nave our houses to rebuild and fitroi - h we have our tradu to pro - ecu te, and our families to main tain ( aud your supplies will contribute ui no' sunll degree to relievo ut from much painful solicitude aud fearful forecast. Gentlemen, it seems as if a now era were o - pen ug in the history of the world. No sooner do f ontendio; nations lay down their aim, than benevolence begins 1 shed her benign influence over the hearts of men ; aud in cate of distress every other consideration v:utshe before that ot an ardent deiire to indulge the kindred feeling? of huininify. Thus wa it that England, our parent country, beheld tbe sufferers of Kussia and Germany, and thus ha America beheld the sorrows of Newfoundland. Long may this geuial spii it prevail, and widely may its influence l.e extended: May the world ce the held ol iu triumphs, and it trophies be foanJ in the blessed result of the united benevoleuce of every na tion unuor (lea veil. Gentlrni'u, be assured that the recollection of your kindness will never be effaced from our mindj. Indeed, independently of those feehr.irt which our own personal interest in your bouuiy cannot but have excited, sis. b pleasing proofs ol the ezisteureol "gd wdl" amougst men, deserve a cto - :picuoui place ori the records of time they shciM be kej't in remembrance when die piureled brow of the conqueror liaJ mouldered into dust, aud hi glory, however dazzling, laJed in ol.Iivioo : aud should never be forgotten tiy any, who, on the scale of human virtues, have been accustomed to give the hi'hest station to the display of genuine pbiho'diYopy.
