Those adntitiutration paper which maailesled to mu(h exaltation af the ua authorised seizure of the Florida, have gene - rally maintained a profound silence - since the president' order for a restoration. However, it nay be well enough lor these entry to euffcr little mortification by way of pittance, for bar in; so impro Jently espoused a mcaiurc without first receiving their cue from Washington. We copy a vtrj sensible and nervous article lipoa lh.it subject, this creamy from the Rich tnoni Enquirer, (he leading government paper in Virginia. The view taken of the transaction by this writer we conceive to be correct, and bis santkneat just, liberal and national. We ra ther inspect, however, that Gen. Jaclson would hardly agree with the writer, that "no man is great enough to be above the fair.' The Enquirer, we believe, was the first administration print thai came ont decidedly and firmly against the eiiureof Pensacola. The firtt publication up on the subject, was said to have been written by Mr. Jefferson i and it is supposed that it prudu ced its intended effect at Washington. J"'rem Iht tiichmond Enfiiirer, July 31. The flartdnj question again. M suspense and auxioty are at an end. The able article which we thUday re - publish from the National lntcll - gencer, places the course of the adiniais tratioa before the people. - We have pride in sayh, that we have never pablisbcd an article wiiirii save Us more real satisfaction. We f. el that the honor of our country is saved front dit grace, and the constitution from violation. W are bow explicitly told, that the Spanish trots were taken without orturi: on e - uera Jackson's "responsibility, merely - Uiough his operatuu are ascribed to w motives oi the pur est patriotism." We are told that the postt are to be restored, ' bat With a requisition" that spam shall here after respect the fifth article of her treaty with Our government thai diiatov the act, aud thet order tethlutum. They give up the potts ; they will bring back the A'paniih troops to Pensacola ; they will put everything, at far as they can. in the slam sat This it all the reparation which we can make it at all that we ought to make at present, for, if Spain should further demand the punishment of the commanding officer, what do we tay to her f " Your own officer has done the first wrong it was bit improper conduct as stimulating the , Indians to arms, that led to the act of uur own ' officer. Punish your officer first, at guilty of the first aggression, and it will then be time enough to talk about ours." So far the executive do their duty by Sp in but they are not insensible of the duties which he owes to us in return. She ought to disavow the acts of her own officer but we hare fur, ther claims upouhr - r. We mutt tay to her The troop which you have posted in Florida, are too few to carry your treaty into effect ; you do not restrain by force all hoslililiei on the part of Iht Indian nations living within your boundary. We make this fair demand. If you do noi comply iu good faith, with the stipulations you have made, we most shape our measures accoi d - ingly." The administration are bound to hcl 1 this language, aud to deal by Spain firmly aud ingenuously. They should enter at once in'o a uego - tiation, to koow her determination. If the refuses to do her duty, then lay the fact before congress and if the taminolet will not make peace with ut on terms which we have a right . i .Iflf - rtfwf, rxmgrmM ihnilM wnpiim m Ilia prt f - deut to garrisou the Spaukh posts with American treops. We owe this to that public faith which it broken s to our rights, which have been disregard ed; to the settlers of the frontier, - who will be loosed to the savae tomahawk. To secure these blessings, to punish Spain for the'infraction i ol her treaty, congress might declare tear they night of course do any act short of thai thus, tuev might seise and occupy the r lor.ua po;ls, There it a plain distinction between this course and that which we hate disavowed. When Jackson ociti,ied these posts, there was in l'ie first place do such extreme necessity as to justi fy the act without a previous demand oi rcpara tion ; 2d, it was of course a.i act of war, an ac done bv military officer without the cowl it u tional sanction of congress. But in the course proposed, reparation still have been demanded, said the act will be authorised by the representative of the people. What then is our course ? We disavow the act we surrender the posts we put l - paiu, a. - far as wc can, in tiaTu qwt we wipe away the wrons which has been tutu we place things m the condition they were in before the post of St. Mark, was taken. Having thus repaired the wrong which has been indicted, we shall go into the discussion witn clean nanus. cad upon (Spain, in gool faith, to fulfil the treaty, u rh eoolVwes that she cannot coniply ; and if the dan err still hovers over us, we must then do lor her what she cannot do for herself ; we must pas a law to garrison her posts, aud keep the savage in subjection, but lei us beware tint we take not .i . i' 1. 1 1 n'u - i .., tk. - 1(1866 urvurci UHU. 1 uv liniui ui mv rtui': - rican nation is too valuable to be trifled with i' is more precious than a hundred r'iondas Wc shall derive but little honor front a war wi.h Spaiu.

Let us satisfy ourselves, at well at the world, that we seek not territory, but safety ; not to injure olhcrt, but to rave ourselves. vVe have bit loo lately escape 1 the imputation ol a stain upon our national honor, to run the ruk of it a second time. But a moment past, and tome of our citizens wore fir thoughtlessly throwing away " a pearl which was rn;uer far" than all the I'Wida. We Biu.t beware how we lightly sport with it a second lime.

Thete are fiue sentiments conveyed in fine language. . The Washington article has done every possible justice to the commanding General aud treated him with all possible delicacy. It ascribes hit conduct to "motivetof the purest patriotism." Tho administration will unquestionably tnow e - very rctpect which it can, to the hero of Urtcaus. But the majnsty f the laws hat also a claim up on every citizen. Oeu. Jackson wmtq an pro - tmhil tw demand an uiuuirv into niscouaucu tic will wish an opportunity to justify himself, and to lay before the nalion the fablt upon which he acted. We hope he will be indulged with an opportunity of making such an election. But :I Ueo. jacKSon waves u, ii win i:wu uu enough Tor the ('resident of the U. States to de termiun the course that ought to bo taken. We live in a republic. The law is our only sheet anchor. No man is great euough to be above the laws. Spain should wei;h the events that have just transpired, with the utmost discretion. Though her posts are giveu up to hery yet she ought to recollect how mrompclrnt sue it to maintain ner authority in to extended an empire that t lori - da ha frequently been, aud is still likely to be, a source ol heart - burning and a none ol contention between os She has seen with what facili ty our truOn have twice marched to rcuskcola, aud how incapable the is ol resisting our lercc. rhe should alto recollect our wrongs, our rcseut - mentf, and our power. Tho day cannot be lar distant when they will burst upou her, u.deis bv an amicable arrangement, the averts the at tack. The thuudor hat long rolled over her head the bolt must fall at her feet. As to the rumour from the Havana, of Spain'i having ceded Florida to the U. State?, we lend no ear to it The nctri it too good to be true, As wo anticipated, the article iu this paper of latt evening from the National Intelligencer, meets with rather an unfavorable reception a cessary in order to render thumtelvot comforta. hie an J hippy in the connubial ttate. We are ignorant as to the success which has herelnfore attcuded there advertising alventurers ; but we mutt be ptrmitted to oliserve, that a lady who would feel disposed to wed upon the strength ol such a told, cheerless, aud stoical courtship, can li - cmire hurscif but a small share of f licit j - from the alliance.
