From the Baltimore Federal Gateltf,Jult) 8. The Spanish minister passed through this city yeilerdav morning, on bis way from Philadelphia tn Washington, where ht probably arrived yesterday evening. He had received despatches from the late governor of Florida, giving an account ol his expulsion from his government by the United Mates troops under the command of sen. Jackson. If the Spanish minister shall ascertain, that our government has authorised or justifies the whole) tittnt of hostilities committed by ten. Jackson, can he draw any other conclusion, than that the two nations are at var.n from the Richmond Enquirer. " Pciitacola. General Jackson, it appears, after taking Pensacola, established a territorial department, of which colonel Kin' is the tem porary governor he bas also established an American custom - house ; and, in fact, bas ex ercised moat of the attributes of sovereignty, as if it were our own territory. Wo presume, that, ia that steps, ht has gone without tht instruction! of the government t and that it will not be long befcrt be will be instructed to evacuate the premises. We will not suppose, Tor one moment, that tht president has Uie slightest inten tion in this way of occupying the Floridas. For, little as we owe the Spaniards, there is some thing wt owe to 'ourselves. Wt repeat, that our national character is worth a hundred Flo ridas.' From the HaUoU Advocate, Juhf 4.

On Tnesday evening last, between eight and nine o'clock, the ery of fire wat; sounded. It proved to be the houe occupied by Messrs. a. C fc J. Schenrk. ' Fortunately it was ar retted before any damage was done. An attempt was made on Tuesday nipht last on the Augusta road, between Mr Ctiyler's plantation and the 16 mile house, to rob Mess. John Elliot and James i Bulloch, who left this city in the morning fur the up country. 1 he villains bad so far succeeded as to cut from tlie carriage tin trunk of tlifc former gentle - man ; but before they had secured their plunder, they were discovered in time to prevent their carrying it off. They retreated precipitately by taking to the woods. Jtfore MmitggLut good found. - The commander of the United States' revenue cutter Dallas, having strong reasons for supposing that there still remained, some part of the cargo cf the Spanish ship Faslora, which bad been smuggled, and had not yet been recovered, dispatched on Sunday last, a boat, under the command of an officer, with orders to proceed to Port Royal Sound, and else where, for the purpose of recovering the goods, and detecting individuals concerned in the nelarieui transaction. The objects of the expedition were completely realized. A quantity of articles, consisting of wine, cordage, paper and dry goods, were discovered and taken possession of by lieut. Hubbard, and deposited with the collector of Bcaufirt. The names of the persons in whose possession the goods wert (bund, we have seen ; they will, of course, be prosecuted agreeably to tho revenue laws of the U. States. It is stated by one of the crew of the privateer Young Spartan, who waaarrectcd and is now confined, in Beaufort, by the officer of the cutter Dallas' that a quantity of dry goods taken and landed from the Pastors, together with a number of cases of Holland Gin, that had beeu plundered from a Dutch ship from Amsterdam bound to Havana, by the Yountr Spatrtan, have been sent to Charleston for the avowed pupoe of defrauding the revenue. The vigilance which captain Jackson, and his officers, have evinced during the whole of tinsauair, men is uie applause of all honest men. SAVANNAH, July 4. It is rumoured that (he Governor of Ueonria. has forwarded to the general government a spirited remonstrance against the cooduct of general Jackson. The Mi Hedge ville Journal, of tlie SOth ultimo. states that Robert Brent, pay - master gjtertl ol the arinv of the United States, bas forwarded to the governor of this state, a draft on the U. 3.

Having arrived ar fourscore, allow me to state some of the feelings attendant upon that advanced age. I am strongly attached to old habits and old fashions, even though absurd. Instead of longing for a new coat, I part with an old one as with an old friend. I forget some lessons, and cannot learn others. One lesson however I must learn, to eat without teeth. The farther we advance in years, the more we are affected with both heat and cold. In early life our feelings are but little influenced by either. I can better remember the transactions ot se venty years, than of yesterday . pour liquor into a full vessel, and the top will run off first Perhaps I can recollect being in a thousand companies, every person which composed them is now departed except myself, upon wnaic - ver family I cast a di.tant eye, I remark in that family a generation is sprung in 10 me, passed through the bloom of the day, and sunk into the night My old friends have ".lipped off the stage, and lamas unfit to unite with new, as new cloth with old. Thus 1 am become a stranger to the world which I have long known. As age 1.1c leases, sleep rferreavs ; when a child enter, upon life, it can slwp twenty two out of thei4 hours. Its sleep will diminish a - bout three horns upou the average every year (luring the next three, when activity will enable it to nurse ilsclf. That reduction will alter - tvards be nearly one hour every ten years, till he arrives at eighty, v. hen lour or live will be his hours ol slei u. It is curious to contemplate the fluctuation of property. I have seen lue man ni opulence 100 a with dindaiu upon a pauper in rcs. I hare seen that pauprr mount the wheel of fortune, and the other sink to the bottom. I have seen a miserable cooper not worth the shavings he made, pl.ire his ion to a banker, and his son become a u'ch banker, a member of parliament and a baronet. nil FINAL OBJeRVATIOSS. IC12. in 1742 I attended divine service at Castle Gnte Meeting, in Nottingham. The minister in elucidating liis subject, made this im - prrsMve remark, tbnt it was very probable, in sixty years, every one in that crowded assembly would hare descended into the grave. Sevea'f stars hare elapsed, and there is more reason to conclude that 1 am the only person left. This day, October llth, is roy birth day. I enter upon my ninetieth year, and have walked ten miles.
