Tbo editor nyi wo bare seised ' Peasacola, tad wo hart taken it into tafe keeping tor tho present j but ho denies that wo bare by thie act declared war against Spain. IJow Is this? We have invaded ber territory, Mixed and cootie a to hold advene possession of it in '." short, cosauttod thp most positively offensive act against bar sovereignty, aod yet wo aro not at war with her, aor the with ut ! A state of war between two nations may bo perfect by the act of one, wilboat any concorreat act of tho other ; nor is it possible to conceive 'there should be a state of war on one side and a state of peace on the other. One man only, since the flood, ever entertained the preposterous idea - that H could be otherwise ; but that man was a great philosopher. If then we are at war with Spain, she am t be at war with us, to all intents and purposes. Mr. Noah is very much mistaken in supposing I am bont on seeking occasion for attacking the president I have held a different language But there is I fear blame of no ordinary magnitude somewhere. For tht Evening Pott. . As the examination of our late collection laws has been commenced ia Boston, it is to be hoped that the merchants of our city will not be behind hand ia their exertions to remove the evils so jibtly complained of. It is certainly easier to Doint out a fault than to remedy one ; and I am of opinion, that much of the present causes of complaint migni nave ooen avosuea, oy a timery attention to this subject If merchants will not give tbo government such practical advice as it needs, they must bo content with grievances imposed through ignorance or inadvertence. All that is left them is to examine and expose objectionable points temperately, and wait the remedy with patience. By the fifth section of the act la question, it it required, that um owner or consignee make oath that his invoice exhibits the true value of the goods at the place from which the same were imported. V a will suppose, that a man in Eu rope thinks proper to purchase an article which be knows is much below its usual value ; he keeps it until it bas advanced, and (hips it to this country, invoiced at cost to which he makes oath. Notwithstanding, bis goods are tent to the public store, and compared with similar articles purchased subsequently, and under lets favorable circumstances they are (bund to be under - Art I r - h t firAfl M'i f H 1 1 II T nn nnnriim ... I ask, what benefit does be derive froia bis cash, his inlellsgeoce or bis experience : three things, which are ine grand lounoauons oi individual t e neftU Take this away, and mercantile enterprise is at an end. The same argument will ap ply to him wno penetrates into a foreign couo try, and superintends the transmission of bit goods personally j thus avoiding all intermediate pHjfiu ana anuccessary caargei : it avails Dim nothing, be is liable to appraisement Suppose also that a man of capital and enterprise chooser to contract wUh a manufacturer either in England or France, to take of his articles a certain amouut yearly, which shall be large ; ia cooii deration of which, be obtains them 10 or 20 per cent leas than the customary price demanded ol ordinary and casual purchasers, He is liable to to praiieinent here, and his capital and the trohbia and hazard he takes produce him nothing. Is this right, just or politic ? The seventh section is by fir the most vexa tious in the whole act. What, in the name oi comaaon sense. 1 ask, is the use of fifty re.ieti tions of an oath already solemnly taken ? If, with all the scrutiny that goods are subject lo on im portation, they are finally admitted, it ia or ought to bo enough. If roods are. notwithstanding all precautions, improperly introduced, the addi twnal oaths on transportation, ic. serve no pur poso for detection. Packages landing from I coasterare seldom or never examined. How easy it it, also, to txchdfigt the contents of packages of similar appearance and description, i - an oath to be taken that the goods are not at originally imported? This shields them effectually. Whatever tend i to destroy our coasting trade, strikes at the vitals of our prosperity. The Boston and .Salem merchants, it is well known, are of necessity obliged to forward a great portion of their importations to the southern cities for sale it is, therefore, imposing peculiar bardsliips on them, besides laying open to public inspection tho nature, and if you please, the secrets of their business. The loss ol time in procuring proper permits for lading and unlading, is a matter of serious moment, not only to the merchant but to the skipper. We always perform with impatience what we deem unnecessary, and thus curses are multiplied with oaths. The president has no doubt chosen, for ap praisers, men of sagacity aod cleverness; but. good God ! only reflect what " Caleb Quotems" they must be, to fulfil completely the require - tneuta of tbe law. Here, in the first place, is an invoice of crockery, consisting of soup?, creams, teas, salts, sugars, peppers, mustards, twifflers, hsgei mans, Le. 4c. from England : here is another, of lap - dogs, little fiddles, trumpets and drums, from Germany : another of waters, po mades, perfumes and imeJlt, of all sorts, from France : another of beerboomgurrabs, aliabad, frysabad, mooradabad, and ail sorts of bad ma moodies and baftas, that take your breath away to name, from Crdontia ; and then there is your sinchaw, your chaw - chaws, your roujecs, your concans, and your rattans, Irom Canton ; All these are to be knowingly examined, aod if (bund fairly charred, passed ; if not, detained. I will only ask, ia the simple language of scripture, uu suuuaect lor mesa thin f It maw be replied, that a third person can be called in ; censuniy, but this in ltelf is a vexation. As if wese laws were notsafhcUaUy teasing and trou - 1 bleeeeae to the merchant, and these duties not suScseutly varied for the Warned QoXrsu, we are obliged to send all packim rj , ia. to one store, of a middle sue to another, and uhui u a inira ; i o bod them, requires two tkiagt ia perfection patience aod perseverance, besides a considerable Dortion of Vwl.W agility ; the stores hcius situated in th triangle, and, making in the while, a tour of ivrnii a mile to committees appointed to frame ow reamer - cial regulations, or the members of such com - mitUee would apply for it, where it ought to be looked tor, to the upright and intelligent man in basines of whom there are many, we should escape the imposition of bad laws, and congress the ridiculous appearance of versatility in enacting and repealing them. - ' . - A MERCHANT. total frtm Bfiunut Cy tho arrival this forenoon of the brig Lady Mary I'elham, m 38 days from Bordeasz, wa hars rsceired Frsncfc papers to the 6th of Jane inclusive. A few days before tbe Lady Mary Pelb&m tailed, two officers and eleven men, belonging to the ship Sums, capt Eberingtot , of Baltimore, arrived at Bordeaux from Brest They iuform, that while on their way home to Baltimore, ia ballast, from Amsterdam, the ffuma was run down, on the 14th of April, in lat 40, Ion. 39 1 - 2, by the French frigate Nereide, from Martiuico to Brest, and id a few hours alter the accident, went down.

We cannot let the opportunity pas without observing how wonderfully the credit of France bas eugneuted, and what confidence is inspired by ine present government. The sum subscribed tor the loan of 10 millions, amount to more than tea times tbe sum wanted ! ! ! They amount to above 2 milliards in capital, and 160 millions of rents. Industry of every sort will immediately feel the e Sects of this confidence, and we may fairly anticipate a flourishing state for France. The Duke of Wellington is not arrived at Paris, as was stated, but is expected in a day or two. All over France the prospects of plenty are greater than they have been for manv years. A terrible fire has almost entirely consumed uie cut oi isrenuoourg, in eattern I'rusiia. Died, on the 24th ult Henry John Oliver, esa. of Brill - house, Bucks. A Sieur P.. - , living in the Rue dit Taon, hanged himself on Tuesday night in his own a - partments. Within the last four dap, he had lost 20,000 francs at the gaming table, together wtin a contract lor an annuity of 12.000 francs. and, last of all, even his watch. He left a writ ten paper explaining the cause of the last desperate act Tbe late fire at Copenhagen, of which we gave an account at tbe time, lay hid several oaya amongst the ashes, and then broke out again, but by great exertions, animated by the king in person, all damage was prevented. We learn from Vienna of the 16th of May, that a loan of 30 millions of florins is just con tracted for by the Austrian Government. Messrs. Baring, Hope, BoUiman, Pa; uh and Geymuller, are the contractors 5 per cent, at 70 the terms. Tbe paper money rises in public opinion. Several wine - men - hants in Taris have hrrn fined hy the Tribunal of Police for having adul terated wim. and mM? rials lor adulteration. Besides the fine the wines have beeu otdertd to be spilt in the street.

The following letter, written on the spot, no doubt by one of the party, gives a circumstantial account of their plans, and the means they employed to ensnare him. Every one, to a man, was full of blood and fury until they approached within gun shot, and taw him tie with bis mouth wide open, and asthoolof porpoises leaping one after another in quick suc cession, into bis voracious maw. A sight so ap palling, was calculated to try the stoutest nerves, and it was thought advisable to abandon the enterprise for the present, and make good their re treat as soon as possible, lett he might, take it into his head to amuse himself by obligiug them in turn to throw a summerset into his jaws.

THE ANACONDA" OF THE OCEAN, OR THE oEA - bEUPE.YF, AG A I.N. Messrs. Gales & i'eaton : The following addressed to me by a gentleman of. resiiect - ability, throws some uew light upon the nature of the wonderful auimal which has excited so much of the public attention. I give the com mumcation to you as I have received ft; and, although I do lint vouch altogether for the fide - lily of my Irioad's narrative, the circumstances it details are not wfiuutblr, ami may, at least, serve to amuse your readers, iu tho present ucarui ui oiner news. o. Eag - IIarUr, Long Island, N. Y. July 10, 1818. J " My dear sir : I have made a treat disco very ! Tbe sea serpent is the " anaconda' ol the ocean. Of 'he latter extraordinary land serpent, we nave nuti several accounts, bearing marks of an thenlicity. The interesting narrative of . - ome French wri ter, founded on Die horrible strength and voraciousness of the auacooda, has passed as a highly wrought romance, uutil other aud more recent discoveries proved that bis relation was not the olfspring of mere fiction. A late accouT from tbe liait Indies, of the great ' Boa" fjhe sua couda) and his attacking and devouring ft large tyztr, has appeared iu the public papers, authenticated by names and circumstances eu tilling it to considerable credibility. . The frigate which conveyed Lord Amherst, on liis late emruiiy to China, or some vessel at Uchcd to the mission, bad ou board, on her re turn, a large Repent, procured at one of the isl ands in tbe Indian seas, which was evidently of uie same species, lie was fed by live atimals. uu 1 took iu a whole goat at one swallow, or meal, which meal supported him for fivt divt. during which time he laid in a kind of 'stupor mis do is quietly tuueodeU ty the luncheon he .'iad taken; until the goat had been digested and dugorged, when a frech supply to his rbracions maw became necessary. This account was at' tested by the Surgeon of the ship, published in the brilun papers ; and I have not seen it con tradicted Uut, new, to my proofs, in regard to the great Sta btrptnl being of a species iu the ocean, ana - la;ous to what the Anacamfa is on land.' Tle alliuity in innumerable instances, between tbe animals ol the earth, and those which roam in the 'vasty 'deep" is too well known to you to re quire any specification here: and be assured tnat the Sea Serpent has his great prototype io tbe Auacooda. I arrived here a few days since, with some friends from New - York, with tbe purpose ol seeking sport and healthy recreation, iu suipt shooting and fishing, la addition to those inducements, my mind bad been occupied with tho idea that, from the late frequent appearMice ui the Serpent ou the adjoining parts of our coast, thero was a chance of his 'truirio;' along this way, and affording me a tight of his huge figui e. Under this inipreisioa (and it at length became irre. - itublc) 1 always went out provided with at excellent portable telescope, which I had brought with me from the city. Seteral days passed without my wishes being gritjfied ; but, Biy executions of ultimate success were unabated, and 1 persevered iu daily taking, for a Iiuip, a slati'jo l my new t'jttrtatary, on the nethtouriiij riciiii which immediately over luoK tne nce:ui. The wuKther, on the morning of the Ctb, was perfectly tlcar, with a li;!il breeze from the westward. Upon carryiug my view along the horizon, 1 at length disrovtrud, at no great dis tance from Ibc laud, the object of my anxious curiosity. He Uy extended at full length, resembling in appearance a narrow ledge or reef of black roc but I saw that it moved, t instant ly returned to the harbor and procured a Small vessel, in vhi h, with several other persons, I stool out lo sea, in the direction in which I bad observed the object uf our search. He was toon discovered, but moving lurlher from the land The breeze was sufficient to give ut a command of the vessel, and we approached him very fast, and at rcugtn so nearly as to have or him a very distinct view. His length could not be much short of ninety or one huudrcd feet, aud his gene ral appearance was such as bas been frequently detcrilied. His head was raised a few feet a - bove the surface of the water ; his eyes large and piertuig : out ne seemed net to take any parti - cu'.'o - notice of our approach, and, at a slow rate, continued upon tne same course, eastward.' Alter we bad procetdod, altogether about three leagues from the kind, the twined himielf, bringing his head to the northward, and appeared to become stationary. ' la the course or ball ao hour z grampuies,v went observed coming dowo from Ihe northvard apparently ia plityful eamtinfc and our curiosi ties lvalue strongly excited to see if any notice wot Id be taken uilhVna by our leviathan, 't hey did Dot escape it Before they came in a line with him he became agitated ; and suddenly put himself in rapid motion, standing "right athwart their bows," (lo ue a nautical phrase) iu order to intercept them. Their meeting was dreadl'ul. The sea was immediately covered with feam, and the struggles so siub - ot and quick, that we could not distinctly perceive Uie mode of attack or defence. If vou have ever read M. Chateaubriand's description of the com bats of the alligators, in the rivers and swamps of' the Floridas, yon may form some idea of the scene ere now witnessed. Altera lapse of about ten miaul es, we could perceive oae of the wastes on tbe surface,' rolling over on bis sides, as if m great agony and exhaustion ; the other, aod the serpent, had Uisaf peared ; end m a lew minutes the second alto sunk out of sight Old " Iron tides" had, no doubt, captured and destroyed tbc - m both : Sly mind having been impressed with the idea that the voraciousness of this monster ana luOusace, wtull convey proprn iaitrmstlsisa cans grs to smcke if there uxe a war, sj.i? vculd be found to be similar to of the Anaconda. I rsi particularly desirottfswf hi re - uppeaisnce after this encounter with the sviiktes. ........ - - .. , About 4 P. M ue was . discovered to uie eastward of ua, going at a moderate rate to - . srilstlie aouth. An alteration was also vi sible in bit figure hi body being considers bly distended, occastonuig a protuberance about the middle, apparently tbe size of a hogshead. We made sail upon our barque, and tood upon Use same coarse with the serpent, ap proaching him gradually. At half past five, the wind having increased, and a pretty rough sea running, prodigious Burners of porpos were obsei ved, coming with the swell of Ihe sea from the southward.. They were ol tne small species vulrarly called by seamen Uie " hedge - hog por poise,1' from their resemblance in their form or shape to that animal. They are frequently seen leanins out of the water by thousand.', to the height h of several yards, and precipitating them telvet again perpendicularly, Willi great velocity. The sea will often be covered for runny . . ... miles by tins moving host, and Weir appearance iu such numbers is generally consiucrca ey sai lors as judicative of an approaching storm. A uew scene now presented itself, and we carefully watched its effects upon the huge obtect of our curiosity. W e soon observed that his bead and necK were eievateu cons.ue rably ; not perpendicularly, but a slope, inclin ing to an angle ot 45 degrees ; and directed towards the myriads of animals which were now approaching him. His jaws were opened to a frightful dimension, and many of these porpoises, as if irresistibly impelled by their care ess and playful Impetuosity, leaped directly into them, one after another, and which the monster teemed to receive as rapidly into his voracious maw. He caught them as 1 have seen a juggler catch on a pointed instrument balls and oranges, which he had thrown above him in quick succession, as they desn ndtd. This Hying repast contiuued until he was completely gorged. His bulk now evideuily swelled to a greatly increased size, and ho finally lay extended, dormant and immoveable. Here theu was a confirmation of my hypothesis. To ascertain more fully, we sailed round him several times, ami within tbe distance of 50 or CO yards. . His head and neck were nosr extended flat upon lite water ; and h . ! his hug - eyes about in listlessuess, as to our approach. Emboldened by this appearance cf sluggish in activity, I discharged at his bead a large mus ket, loaded with ball and buck shot, in the hup of hitting his eyes. It produced a very slight movement of tbe head, appearing to have had no material effect. 1 would have repeated the experiment; but, io the hurry of our departure from the harbor, we had neglected lo provide lorsucb an occurreuce, and I bad, besides, a ti mid set of associates about me, who had not been at sea, and who never had encountered as many hazardous enterprises, We concluded, therefore, to return into port, and eo out better nreiur:d for the expedition. I have found in Uie Military store here two long swivels, which turn upon a pivot, which I am mounting on ihe bows ol two vessels wtiicli we have engaged, for our second cruise :ari intend to coarse with a - raiie shot On the vessel uf which I mean to taku the chief direction, I am also mounting a three pouud cannon upon a pivot.
