" , ; v ' Houses to ot nvibered.A commanicatioa is " received, calling upon the common council to order the houses to be numbered anew. And certainly the call deserves attention, most of the old aumbers are defaced by time, and a very great - proportion of oar homes teem never to have bad numbers upon them. Besides, many new streets hare bee a opened and made to run into former streets and thus the numbers that originally designated the home are become dis arranged. - ' v . - 07 M' - and Mrs. WEST, of Baltimore, return their sincere thanks and grateful acknowledgements to a noble young man, (whom they afterward , understood to be Mr. SAMUEL . FRANKLIN of this city.) for the preservation of their only daughter The particulars were as follows I As Mrs. West was standinr on Pike - street wharf, with her child m her arms, she made a sudden leap from them and fell into - the Water. Her generous preserver, who was binding on the same wharf, seeing the child fall, immediately sprang in and rescued her from watery gray. . i, : Extract of a letter to a gentleman in this city dated . ; .

I remain, sir.' your friend, and moat obedient servant, (Signed);....,! T.BARNARD. THE GOVERMlCS REPLY. Executive Department, O. Mil - ) '" ' ledgevillejaOthMJy, 1CI8. ) Sir, I bare the honor tp acknowledge tlie re - cript of jour's of the 6lb instant, enclosing a copy of a letter from old Mr. Barnard, and one from the Little Prince, spcakrrof the Lower Creeks, both on the subject of the late unlortu nate attack made by a detachment of Georgia militia under caplum Wright, on the Chehaw village, which bad previously been tupposed to ue ineuuiv. I have examiued these communications with the cantfor their importance required. It is ts - questionably your duty, as agent, to attend to ine complamts of the red people and cause ju lice to be done to tliem as far as your powers win extend, it will also readily be acknowledg ed by all, that my duty, as governor of the state, requires that Should difend the cause of the whites, as far ns that cause can bo supported by the great principles of justice. At you have I'urnUhed me with the Indian accouut of this transaction, and assured mo of the friendship towards the wniles trial existed amen them pri or to the attack, I feel it incumbent on me to explain to you, and through you to the nation over which you preside, the motives by whic h the officers were actuated, who conducted the enterprise ; and the grounds upon wliirh they win auempi 10 jusuiy ine proceeding, or extenuate the guilt that may, in the view of some men, be attached to them. You will readily acknow ledge the decided and inveterate hostility of tnoee Indians whicn belong to the villages under the immediate direction and control of tbe chiefs I foponnee end Phelemme ; and that the orden which emanated from this department for their chastisement was both necessary and proper. Xu are also well apprised, that the orden men confined them specially to that object : so far then as respects myself, I feel perfectly justified in the measures I adopted, and which I deemed essentially necessary to prevent a repetition ol the horrid murders and depredations committed by those Indians on our unprotected frontier. I will now undertake to oner, in behalf of the de tachment, the best apology for their conduct that may be able to furnish, and which I am authorised to state, can be supported by ample proof. wnen the detachment was on its way to, and had reached, the neighborhood of Fort Early, Ihey were credibly informed ly several person of veracity, that the celebrated old chief Hoponnee, whose town had all joined the hes ile party, had removed and was at that time living iu ine village upon wmrn us attack was made and was considered as their principal leader, aud that a treat pot lion or them was alled&ed tj be under his immediate direction, although part of mem might tie with jrmtoth. They therefore considered themselves author iscd to attack it as being one of Hopoonoe's towns The result I oeed not mention, as you have seen the statements made bv captains Wright and Robinson, which I am authorized by very re spectable testimony to assure you, was substan tially true, except as to the numner reported to have been killed, which was fortunately incorrect. Now sir, if I have been misinformed, and given a wrong construction to this affair, I should like very much to have more correct information, but if it should be founded in fact, what more can you and the Indians require, than (or me to assure you, that 1 regret the circumstance, and consider it as one ol the misfortunes attendant ou war, where the innocent frequently sutler in common with the guilty. This unfortunate affair has been shamefully misrepresented, by many or our citizen?, whose delicate feelings seem to have forgotten the many watt'.on outra ges that have been committed on our frontier by the Indians, and would even cover the whole state with disgrace, merely because this small detachment have in this inttancc, mistaken their orders, and tarried their resentment to au itn - proer extent. I he experience of all ages have shown, that it is much easier for us to complain of the conduct of other (and especially those in responsible station;) than to correct our own, I have ascertained that the property left by the Indian, who ruu oil from or near Dr. Uird1 store, on the Ocmulgee, some time past, is now i j the possession of Mr. Richard Smith in tbe lower end of Twiggs county, and will be delivered at any time when proper application shall be made. You will please assure the red people under your care, that I teel a disposition lo maintain peace and friend. - hip with them on liberal terms. I have the honor to be, respectfully, vour obe dient servant, WM. RABUN. We hive been politely favored with a letter from major - general Jackanu, to brigadier - jene - rl Glascock, from which we have made the following extract : " Camp, on line of march, 16 miles in advanc of Fort Gadsen, May 7. " I cannot adequately express my feelings r - n the outrageous and inhuman attack of captain Wright and party, on the supeianuated men and women of the friendly Chehaw village, which you re ite. It will bo a stijma uo the American nation, unless the general government use their endeavon to bnn the perpetrators to justice. I nave ordered W nht to be arretted, and he shall be tried by a military court. I have written the governor of tieoreia on the subject, ex pressing my astonishment al his unwarrantable interference with my duties. "I congratulate you on thenlo march ot your brigade to f ort Larly, with a hope that the brave Georgians under our command, who have encountered the dangers, fatigues ami pri vations of a long march in an unfriendly country, may be speedily restored, iq health, to their fa milies and homes. " I am now on my march lo Pensacola, wh;ch plare I shall bare probably to occupy with an American garrison." From the (Geo.) MiUedgwiUt Journal, Mag 26 from the Anna. We have conversed with several officeft lately from the army they state that the two British emissaries captured at st. Mirks and Suwanne, Jrbuthnot and Am - bnuter, both accomplices of the notorious v ooaoine, have been tried by a Court Martial, i which uen. i. ames was President, and oe - ing found guilty of excit ing the late Indiai mar, were executed on the 27th of last month the firmer was hanged nd the Utter toot. Arbutlinot had been a contain in tl.A Ttri. Ub service, was about 40 yean of age, of gen - teel appearance, and met his fute like a soldier. Wheu Use executimer was fixing the rope afouml'Lis ricck, he desired jot,lo be handled to roughly - oDservea iiivms - tleman. and tome aav. tnokC'Cf bit death be ing avengeit - - 4iis property, he requested should be given to his ton.' Ambrnsier, was Tounsr. not exceed ine 25 at first, he was in eolent and contumacious but at death began to look him in the face, he lost bit composure, and died more like a woman than a man. The evidence against both, we understand, was clear and strong. Letter, advising; the enemy of the movements of our army, and how to act, were intercepted. Documents were also found, proving beyond doubt, that a criminal correspondence had been tome time kept up, by them and the Governor of New - Providence, with the Indiana and renegade negroes in Florida. But how indignant must Francis, who was hanged a little before, had in hit pocket a British government, tupposed to have been given to'liiin during his late visit to Ene - land, whence he had not long returned. As a scrutiny, we are assured, will develop the blackest perfidy ti - wards tnis country, Great Bjitain will be disposed to let the mat tt r rest where it is. General Jackson, with a regiment of rrcii lars and the Tennessee volunteers, crossed the Appalachians Bay on the 7th inst. and expected to reach Pensacola, distant about 200 miles, last Thursday, lie will probably take pos session or the place, and leave in it a sufficient garrison for its defence, and for the protection of our aIiaccnt frontier settlements. A detachment of 550 men has been left at Fort Gsdsden, 200 at St Marks and about 250 at Fort Scott, under the command of general Gaines, to overawe and effectually suhdue the Indians in that quarter : aud a naval force nas been ordered to cruise on the south side of Florida Point, fur the purpose of cutting off the supplies, which such of them as have Bed to Lake Mayance, miht otherwise receive from the contiguous Hi Kish islands, We arc informed that gen Jacksnn speaks of retiring from the military service of the country very soon. The rapid decay of his consti tution, occasioned by great bodily fatigue and exposure, in stated to be the cause. The w hole army it is said, have suffered inconceiv ablyan otlicer declares he hut never teen such emaciated troops. The prosecution of the Seminole war has probably been attended with as many privations to the soldier and as much epence to the government, as any contest ever was, of no longer duration or greater magnitude. ' The report of general Gaines beintr under arrest, ws are glad to learn, is without foun dation. Correspondence between gov. Bibb and the Dig YY amor, relative to the murders commit ted on the l ederal Road, some months past. COOSA DA, 26th March. 1818. Friend I send vou this letter to inform vou that some of the white people in this territory have been cruelly murdered, and to explain to you the things I have found it necessary to do. un i nuay mgnt, the lSh ol this mouth, a fa mily, consisting of men, women and children, while sitting in peace around their fire, on tbe Federal road, about 65 miles this side of the town of Claiborne, were attacked by a party of red men, and eight killed. I he next Friday, five men riding quietly along the road, in the name neighborhood, were fired ou, three killed and one badly wounded. These unexpected and unprovoked murders could not be borne. W e could not sit down, and permit our wives and children to he tomahawked without resistance. 1 have therefore ordered our soldiers to find and slay the hostile party, liut I am in formed, Hi ere are many of your people among us who are our rnends; and we know nut now to distiuguith them from our enemies. They a - larm our women and children When the army meet them, they canndt kuow whether thev are Iriends or foes ; and the murderers themselves will say ' we are your friends." In this situation, it if best that yoor people should go borne. They might be killed through mistake, and I should be sorry for it. I have, therefore, ordered that Ihr.y go from among us immediately ; and I send this letter by major Laprade and Mr. Stevens, to explain to you my reasons for so do ing, sou trill sea that it proceeds irom tnend - ship, aud I hope will belp me in getting your people to come home. If you will tell me how it can be soonest done, I will help you in any arrangements for that purpose, you may propose. It is necessary, we should understand the views and wishes of each other, and then as friends we cau att together. Your friend, WM. W. BIBB, Governor of tho Alabama Territory. To his excellency W W. Bibb, governor to the Alabama Territory of the United States. Ft iend and Brother You have sent me n talk, I am clad to hear from you. Our people are, and wiih to remain in peace with their white brethren, your people. You say that the blood of your men, women and children, has been spill - dJ by red men. I am sorry to hear it. I cnuld not hinder it. Those red men who spilled your blood, are none of our people. We are your friiu is. . I am glad that you have taken me by the hand, and culled me fi iend That ynu have sent me a talk. on say that your warriors are out. You are friendly in giving me that notice I know that all red men are alike in appearance. i cur warriors, therefore, cannot tell the good from the bad. They canuot distinguish between Iricud and foe. Those hostile men uro like the wolf. They creep and sculk about until they an spill blood. 'I hcv frighten my people, as well as yours. I have sent for my hunters to re turn to our own land ; all may not have had notice. I shall in three days send one of my war riors, Barney Riley, to you, to aid and asaiat in giving what few hunters may be among you, no tice that they must return. I want to see you that we may talk together, aud not mistake each other Friend and Brother We wish to live in peace and friead - .hip wiMi you, and wish we may aid each other in governing our people. . TUSTLNUGUt: THLUULO, (B. W.) Extract nf a Utter to tlie editor of tht Democrat ie Hreis, dated "ST. THOMAS, Siith May, 1318. " We have the oft'rio news here from Carac - cas that another battle has been fought on the I Ith inst. about 20 leagues west from ban Car losin which both parties seem to have fought with desperation.

Major General Jackeon Wc are concerned to hear that this distinguished officer is about to retire from the service of his country, and it is with deep regret we learn that the ill state of his health is the cue which moves him to resign. His sent'unenls and conduct on the destruction of the Chehaw Village are such as were to be expected fiom his high sense of national honor as well as his high consideration for the rights of humanity. In our paper of to - day will he found tome interesting particulars of the cases of the I'rophet Fran - cit, of ArJmthnot and Ambriitic, who have all been executed by order of General Jackson. We look with much curiosity and some anxiety to a more full, perfect and authentic account of tlie conduct of those British officers. We trust it has been tuch as will justify the General in the rigorous measures which he lias a - dopted. From tht Aurora, XXTR1CT OF A IITTKB DATED: " Washington City, June 2, 1818 . " The British consul general, A. St. John Ra ker, is about to depart lor k - urope ; the ostensi ble cause of his departure is the recovery of health, but it is sullicicut to look in his face to see that it is only a common diplomatic disease which may be aggravated or cured at discretion ; the real object is diplomatic ; tbe Knghli cabi net has expressed some hesitation in regard to certain subjects in Mr. Bagot's dispatches ; aud the fate of the two Lnghsh emusarios, so unex pectedly executed in Florida, and the specula tion carrying on between the Spanish agents and some persous in this place, opens a field of corruption so wide and comprehensive, that thede tails will not be submitted to paper. Air. Baker goes prepared to state the lacts from bis mime diate knowledge ; for no man is belter acquaint ed with men and things here. The chevalier colonel Sarmicuto is also preparing to visit Mad rid, but his business appears to relate to the mer cantile affairs of some Americans on the West Coast ; he received $27,000 for one servico of this kind, but tlie object lor which tie received the doceur failed, and he will not refund." CHALE5T0N, May 30. Through the politeness of a gentleman, who has just arrived in this city from Ldgelield, we are enabldd to contradict the report mentioned in last evening's paper, of a duel bctweeu capt. - Arthur iimkins and George ArUulhe, tso. We are informed that the gentleman above mentioned was in company with Mr. M'Dufhe on Monday evening last, and that captain iriinkins was transacting business in Augusta at that time; no misunderstanding, it was further stated, was heard of as existing between tho parties. We are ine lined to believe that the report originated from the circumstance of a duel of a similar me lancholy nature, between two gentlemen of the bar, Mr. Moffctt, of Augusta, and Mr. Wool - dridge, of Abbeville. We understand that Mr. M. was shot dead on the spot, ami that JUr. w. received his adversary's ball in his right arm. OGDENSBURGU, June 2. On Friday last. Joseph F. Pluvmart, one ol the persons supposed tn have been concerned in the robbery of the Merhauics1 and Farmers' Baok at Pittsburgh, was taken op nt Brockville, and brought to this place for examination. About 700 dollars ingld, $1500 in bills of the Pittsburgh banks, and pear $3000 in bills of other western hanks, was found in his trunk. His dres was evidently a disguise, hut his name and the description of his person precisely coincided with the description given of him in the advertisement of thn Directors of the hank, offering a reward of 300 for his apprehension. The ex amination continued about naif a day and after fully weighing all tlie circumstances, he wat committed bv our fuAgistrntes to the gaol of this county ; and we flattered ourselves that the ca - . . I t r. . I i I ' 1 1 ' l.l reer oi uus uriiui uuu uuisiwu vnidiii wwnu ur stopped, and he would receive the punishment due for his crimes. Unfortunately for the public - however, on Sun day night last the gaol was broken, and this man, together with two other prisoners, made their escape ; to effect this they must have had external aid, which the appearance of the gaol and the implements used tor breaking it, indicate ; and we are sorrv tn siv that we believe persons have been found in this vicinity base enough to assist in turning this man loose, again to prey upon society. Since the above was in type, we have seen a letter from Ogdeusburg, which states that Hluy - marl and all who escaped from tlie prison have been fetaken. BAIXSTON - SPA, June 3. Aeir mineral spring During a great flood in the month of - rf ugul last, the creek, which runs through this village, was, opposite the factory, diverted from its usual course. When the flood subsided, a fountain was observed, boiling up through tbe sand, which, though mingled with a large quantity of fresh water, was evidently a mineral spring, of considerable strength. Thi? spring, however, was not only mingled with fresh water, but was so foul and discoloured from the blue clay and sand through which it passed, as to b unfit to drink. Attempts were made to separate the fre:h water, by sinking a curb, but from the unfavorable nature of the ground, and the quantity of water, with very little success. At length a tube, about fourteen feet long, was forced down, through which the water rose with increased strength, and in process of" time, so clarified itself as to become perfectly pure aud transparent. By this means, the excellency of the spring has been proven beyond a doubt. It af fords a clear, pungent, and powerful water, of the finest flavor imaginable, ince tlie opening of spring, it has been much frequented, and by all who are acquainted with it, is in the highest estimation. Having frequented, and drank of the mineral waters in this county, more or less, for ten years past, we confidently assert, that the new spiiog water is more pungent and pleasiBg to the taste, than that of any other in these parts, and as a ca - thartir, stands before any except the congress, that has been discovered in this country. The quantity of water and filed air, which this spring discharged is truly astonishing to every beholder, and much more so, when we consider that it has burst forth in the bottom of an ar tificial canal, which was dug about ten years sincr, and at that lime shewed no signs of aay mineral water whatever. It is on the property of Nicholas Low, Esq. of New - York, and directly in front of the extensive cotton mill, on the west side of the village. From Urn powerful and excellent qualities of tins water, both as a medicine and nevera - p, it will offer another inducement to the inhabitants of the cities, and others, to visit this place, in Oieir pleasure excursions, or pcrrgriuatioas ia search ol W health. I in, tin rious papers, that " Tfie Handel and Hayoi So - cioty," repeat their musical entertainment; this evening. From the euccess ol the attempt on Thursday eveoiug, we are led to conclude, tliat they - will not bo disappointed on the present occasion. ' The object they have in view it of a highly meritorious nature, and their pertbrtnan - antes ai e such as do them' great credit. This species of amusement pouesses the pre - eminent advantage cf pctr - C not only inuoccnt in its na ture, but calculated to please the ear, to warm the heart, and elevate tbe,JTcctKut ; and to ev ery virtuout mind affords rafiminl, pure, and sub lime enjoyment. . We hope they may meet with filch encouragement and support, as will enable them to pers'ivere in their endeavours lo improve the puhhe tatte, aud add materially lo the public gratification. D. Ado.
