Mr'nJaniiL, . it k to mea natter el considerable regret, h( ' vou should hart tanctioesd, by .an tusqtialified ' publication, lh communication in your paper of dkiuraaj. raiauT iost otaisstoo ci air. rnwi toeec in Bacon's report of Harerman'i trial. '. And frodi the plaia and Terr indelicate Inti snatioa ai to the toppotedmleriority efal tbe other tpeochet delivered by th various counsel a that occasion, it I da to Mr. Bacon to stats, that omtsstoa of Mr. Price's rpeec was ts eooteoasoea of tha with of that eaotlemaa an - tiactly expressed to th reporter. For tha cor - - ractooai of this statement I night veaturn to ap pesd to Mr. Prica bimtolf. r . A riUEflD TO JUSTICE. ' Monday morning, Jon 22, 1818. ' Anwim. .'. I insert tha above to put aa and at once to all further raauu - kiia (ait paper on tha ubjecL la publishing tha eemmmucaiioa abora referred to just a itcanatohaod, I did not mean to be nn - derstood a expressing my owa opinion that tba peech referred to wa superior to that of aay ;'" other counsel. Far from it. . K was not intend - ' ad by the speaker himself to be a com pleat ramming op of the merit of the cause, but rather joieral remarks, and ufrepel adme groundless assert ioos and insiaaation of the apposite collate!. At tuA it was certainly a tpeech both forcible and eloquent. A to the reaaoo assigned by the writer for tha aon - appearanca" of Mr. j Price speech, we matt be content V receive that gtvet) by Mr. Bacon himself in preference that cf any - aaoayaiou correspondent Mr. Griffin, who followed hiai in a tpeechj of an boar aad a half, went thoroughly into tha cauaa in detail, and, 1 renture to aay, pre one of tha finest rpecimen of tar eloquence that baa ererbeen beard OB a similar occasion. ' We hare only been restrained front a republication of it in this paper, from a With not to trespass on the right of & reporter perhaps it may hereafter appear. . - Firt.'r - This mdrning, about 1 o'clock, the brick factory lately fitted op by Messrs. Cooper, Houston & Co. at Brooklyn,, for purifying oil, was discovered to be on Are, and so rapid was the progress of the flames, that the premises were burnt to the (round before any assistance could be rendered. ., A large brick dwelling house adjoining the factory was several times on fire, but was saved by the exertions of the fire men from Brooklyn and New - York. . The loss is estimated at 5000. No part of the property wu insured. From the circumstance of there sot having been any fire, not even a lighted can dle, in the factory tinea last Thursday afternoon, there is every reason to believe it was the work of an incendiary. ' A reward of $100 will be given to any one wha will furnish the necessary proof to convict the villain. Fiyremlf Last Saturday tha constables, under the direction of the police office, scoured the city, and took up all the vagrants they could find lurking about the streets and alleys. On being Vxamined, fourteen were found to have no place of residence in the city or any visible meant of obtaining a livelihood, aod were sent, under the vagrant act, to tW pftmiUnliary. ' We tuvier - stand two days hi each week are fixed oo for Bartering these teterant, and disposing of then ae the taw directs. AVw Aoaet The number of new houses erect ing at this time la the city ofNew - York has been computed at fve thoiuani, and most of them art large and elegant; a much greater number than has been erected in aoy one season since it was a city. It is hoped this great increase of buildings will have the effect of bringing down rents, at present higher in New - York thau iu any place in the known world. ' What am I to understood by the article in Saturday's Columbian, purporting to be editorial ? I forbear for the present to notice it further j but if I am pressed, Mr. Spoooer may discover that Ainu ate tmpune lacesril is my motto. Mr. Falconer'' $ benefit We feel inclined to make a stronger appeal to thefiicads of the thea tre on this occasion than on almost any other, Without exception. Personally Mr. Falconer has the good wishes of every one who eaters the box office, for the amiable and obliging manners which, at all times and under all tircumstances, mark hit haunt He hat long been the faithful servant of the public, and the present u the only suitable occasion, which offers during' the theatrical year, to reward him for hit indefatigable attentions. His situation allbrdt him the best opportunity of teeing and hearing what playt best please an audience, and he has accordingly selected, as one of the most popular ths present season has produced, Tht Bridt of A by - dot, with tha highly interesting melo drama of! The Jtftitt etnd Magpie at an afterpiece, enlivened by tha sprightly dancing of Mr. and Mrs. Parker. We are sorry to observe that other amusements are offered this evening to attract from the tbtatro to the circus, and the puppet show ; but we hope it will be recollected, that those places may be visited at any aveniog hereafter, while Mr. Falconer's benefit night wuU not offer again JbUl another year comes round. The ship Liverpool - Trader, hat arrived at Boston from Liverpool with about 20 passengers, tome of whom having the small - pox, tha ship is ordered to perform Quarantine. The government paper has at length broke silence on the subject of the military execution, by gen. Jackson, of the two Briush officers, Arbuth - not and Ambristie. r A strong inclination manifests itself to justify tha act From th National Intelligencer ftfJurU t.

At least, before we pro - Doonce our opinions,' let ut know oo what grounds tbey rest, that, when pronounced, out opinions may be entitled to some respect; la renid to these executions, then, our infor mation extends only to the fact, that two Indians, the perpetual fbee of the .American rare, and who are mid to have violated every obligation of nature or oi law oy savage treacnery, were bung by gen. Jackson j and that two white persons were tried by a court martial, and punished with death, on chargea of treachery and deliberate in - atmentoitne savages to acts of barbarity. We have aot the official annunciation of these facts ; neither tbe proceedings of tbe court martial before whom tha latter were tried. But we have enough to certify to us, that these persons, if rail - ty of the offences aUedged against them, merited their fate and to induce us, if not to commend the act of mflictinff their punishment, certainly not to condemn it, without, taking the trouble to CIKJUCT USUI 1U JOSUCS. We can well conceive that a painful feeline migni oe awaseaea in we breasts or many, nay, of most of oar readers, oa hearing these circumstances. Tha feeling is natural. The miserable wretch, whose life it forfeited to the laws for the oBence of horse stealing or of highway robbery, is not tauncnea into eternity without commiseration. We would, at that moment, save him. i we could. But, in the highest excitement of that, feeling, woo ever censured the jury that decided, the judge who pronounced the law, or the officer of the court whose unfortunate duty it was to see we sentence executed r Yet the degree of the crime thus atoned bears no proportion to the e normity of that, of which he is guilty who edu catet a whole tribe to murder and rapine, puts we instruments into weir bands, and even beads the bands which have slaughtered our fathers, brothers, wives and helpless infants. Their crime was horrible, if proved, and the measure of justice was not overheaped. We are bound to presume that these facts were proved lor Arbuthnot and Amiirutie were tried before a court - martial, of which the discreet and gallant Gaines was president, and composed of officer of the highest character and standing. Tha sentence was approved by Jackson, whose humanity at well as his valor has been often tested ; from which character the en ergy which distinguishes his conduct surely cannot detract If we had known nothine of een. Jackson's character before, the generous indignation ha manifested at the unwarranted destruction of Cbehaw, interposes between him and the charge of cruelty. It has been said that general J. ought to have awaited the decision of the pre sident on the fata of his prisoners. On this head the law hat placed in the bands of gen. Jackson a discretionary power : and, if he believed it proper, and it murht hare been necessary, per haps to the safety of his army, it was hit dutv to carry into effect a sentence intended to operate more as an example, than a punishment. But, it tt whispered, these two men were Bn - tith $7iert,aad Britain will resent their fate. lotlus it u sufficient to reply, if they had been pnuw ouicers, iney wouia naruiy nave Men found whetting the tomahawk, and iaflaminz the murderous disposition of the Indians who arowled about our frontier in search of whom they should destroy, iney may indeed, once have been British officers; but, placed in that situation in which they were found, Britain can no longer acknowledge them, without becoming the patron of their crimes ) a light m which - wa do not wish to see bar, and much las can tha consent to view herself. If it should be otherwise, and she thinks i. proper to interfere, we can only point tier to ins law A nations, which subjects those persons kxiod in arms among a foreign people, to be classed with? them : and, for our submission to this unquestioned rule of public law, we can point nor to the shorn of Mexico, to the fields of Carracras, where have fallen victims to their thirst of renown, and to the Spanish policv. hun dreds of our gallant youth, many of whom lately held comaiissiooa in our army, but who, iu engaging in a foreign cause, lost in that chararti r tlie protection due to them as American citizeu. Whatever else may arise from this transaction, it is impossible that'tbe British government can undertake even to complain or it. We have, iu these few remarks, endeavored to deprecate opinions formed oa tbe crude materials now before the nation. Wftcn the official accounts are received, we hope they will be laiii before the public. We doubt not, it will then be founilthat nothinghas taken place inconsistent with tbe chivalrous character we claim for o ir army, nor with the humanity bv which we bora ever to se this people characterized. The following speculations on the capture of Pensacola by the United States's troops, are co pied from the Philadelphia Democratic Press of last Saturday. Pih!.cola. We understand that an express has arrived at Washington city, with dispatches from the commandanWat Peusacola, to the Spanish Embassy. It is rumored : tbe despatches advise the Minister of the enptore of tbe town and fort of Pensacola by Gen. Jacksot; that it was there presumed that War had been declared by the United States, against Spain, and in consequence oi wis presumption the commandant hat issued a Proclamation. 6iuce the exe cution of Arbuthoot, ic. particularly since the arrival or the express, the conferences between the Spanish and British embassies were more frequent and of longer duration than heretofore. It is believed that the return of tbe President of tbe United States, it in consequence of these cir cumstances and conjectures. weiookwiu anxiety for Vfficutl despatches from Geo. Jackson, in relation to the storming of Pensacola. We are the more anxious, as reports are iadustriontlv circulated of the Ameri can troops having suffered severely in the assault From the ffalional Intelligencer, June 20.
