The National Advocate of N.

The preaident would scarcely tay that the retention would be an act of war, which At had no right to make and in the next breath declare that he would take unon himse'.f to hold them, unlete pain complies with a certain specified provin or ctrulitian. We understand the President' course to be hit he rivet up the posts : at the same tune he calls upon Spain to comply with her trraiy ; ml for that purpose to maintain a suflicit - nt force to keep the Indians in awe. If Spain rennet to comply, it will then be for Congress, not for htm, to conclude what steps shall iuxt be taken whether, for instance, if the Seminole war continues, we may not take contingent possesion ol in e country.

It is thought, that if she persists iu this design, the will betsecuted on Saturday neat. The most perfect tranquility reigu? throughout the domiuions of the Courbou muuarcli, aiid indeed over Hi wlwle contiucnt. The ;aon in Krauce and Italy, a iu America, has been unu. - ually Una, aud a rich reward, in all probability, awaits the husLaodaian and vine dresser. . A Paris paper reports, t lint an earthquake had swallowed op tlie ancient city ( tkiiUvapoliM llornania, and destroyed 70,000 of its iuhabi - lanis. An eaniiq - iane 111 1 urut - y it not a rare piece of newt in a Paris paper. Russia, says the Courier, does not seem to have arranged all her affairs with the Pwrte. The la lest intelligence fixtm ConitanlinopU states, that on the 1 1th April, a new conference was held between barou Strogonoff, the Russian minister, aud the TurkUh minister, but the latter woubl luten to no definitivo termioarion, either with respect lo Servia, or the other indemnities claim ed by Russia. An article from Hamburgh mentions that a fleet is expected in the roads of Copenhagen from Cronstadt and Revel, which will proceed, it is thonzht, to (Mend and Calais, to receive on board the Rutsian troops forming part of ths army of occupation, io case it should be with drawn from France. M. Carubaccres has quitted Brussels, and intends going to Italy, where he will remain tome time. A Vienna paper states, that Geueral Sal vary, with bit brother - iii - law, Colonel Taudrat,' has quitted GraU, with the express consent of, and with paj'ports from, the French Court. They are both going to North America. MaJamo Jo seph Boonaparte it going, with her family, to the balbs at Ears.

' A Paris paper states, that a recent attempt had been made at Copenhagen to assassinate totting of Denmark, by a barber - turgton, wlto atttnd 4 oo of the kioc't snoroinj audience. The fellow appears to have been deranged. The whole realm of Great - Britain is plunged in confusion, violence aod seal, by the general election, which commenced a few days previous to our latest date. The opposition are straiuing very serve j riots are frcquont and the cities of Loudon, Westminster, Liverpool, aud other town, are experiencing all the blessings of demo cratic fury and turbulence. The London Courier is indignant that even the, opposition should thmk' of 'placing such men as V'ooler, Hunt, and Girtwnglit, in an assembly oitce adorn ed and dignified by the talents and character of a JSurJte, a Pill, a Fox, a Sheridan, Windham, &c.' We, however, anticipate that the opposi tion will be able to effsct but little. Indeed, from the teste of the papers aod the returns al - ready received, we think it not intphbable that the ministry will tua an accession of strength. Mr. Canning and Gen. Gatcoyne are the minis terial candidates at Liverpool. Lord Sefton is the rival candidate of Mr. C. The Liverpool Mrrrory, a strong opposition print, amiils Mr. ! Canning, " in prrwe aud vtrje," in the mot ma - 1 liguaot and violent manner. We have glanced over several columns of electioneering matter, which would have answered exceedingly well for U10 late election in Peonsylrauia. Lord tfefion was nouinbted at a public meeting in Liverpool, the chuirman of which was Mr. Charles Lawre nee.

No intercourse is allowed with the islaud of St. Helena. Trials continued in Loudon as late at the Slst of those concerned ia adulterating tea, and other Troceriet, aud articles of human food. A ver - lict was found for the crowo, upon two counts, tho one for manufacturing 100 Ibt. of imitation tea, and the other for having 100 ths. of such tea in his possession. The total amount of the penal ties upon these two convictions was ire thousand pounds iltrling. Another perioa was convicted at the tame silting', and a penalty for Hit crowo imposed of one hundred snd thirty - five pounds.

There is a rumor atout tho city, which we live as we received it, leaving to ths judgment of others to determine the measure of credit to which it it eauiled. It is to substance at Ibllowi That on th: receipt of information ol the capture of feccirola, the i.residut and heads of departments were called together, in what it called (uuxaown to our coritlitutina aud derogatory to th principles of representative government) the catrsrrr. Ft fur this body of untlerltd and irrejfmsiiU legislofnrt, a serial cf qur.nions are raid to hire bees propounded ; to the effect following we do not pretend to the precis) word, sj they readi ed us in a mod precludes every thiug but the signification and iutcniion of thtm. Central propoiitiim.ll appi ariu by authen tic evidence, Ut mjr - t;eaetrl Jacktoo has taken poscestba of the capital of Florida, and x pelled the roval nrruon from tlie Simuiah ( tress of Barauca that he removed the Spanish commandant ano hi? troop, aoder tlie capitula - tioo, from (he trrilry of Florida ; acd bis bound the United States to crrtaia present aud prospective coothlioas, which if the treaty be ratified by the pretidonl, kc may prove highly pernicious to the V.

As this Question leaves the only alternative, af ter the two first shall have been decided in the negatives, it mar be expedient before finally de ciding thereon to recousider the two first ques tions, with reference tuereto ; as a negative 01 tne third question also, would leave the government at large, without any rule of action. This is the substance of what has been communicated to Os: V make Bo pretensions to cite either the express terms or the form of the sentences, but barely the meaning and bearing of the propoitious. ' I It is said that the cabinet was divided, ana tne first question was supported In the affirmative, and with much vehemence, ry one ot the members particularly but the question was determi ned in the negative, upon the ground that the measure would lead to a war, which would in evitably lead to a change of adaiiuiatratioo im mediately. On the second question, the taer jiee of gene - mi J ar k via was as warmly opposed, and his whole conduct vindicated as cotilolmable In bi instruction, and ths duties which they involved ih' - it though bis instructions did not expressly authorize the storming of Pensacola, that it was not only the intention and wUh of the executive that Ptnncola should be taken, but that it wa, in the nature of things, impo - iiblo to execute 'he duties assigned to him, without so doirg; and (hat had he failed to complete the object of the expedition be would have incurred, and as a mi - 'ilary man, merited repression; that there were cases which probably would be made to appear on lhiocca;ioo, by which the determinaf tmi of tho ohject of the expedition might nave been hazarded ; that the army mibt have been 10 circumstanced by fatigue, or by waut of adequate provision, so as to render it absurd and impossible to attempt converting the seige iulo a blo:kad), without uiog force lo batter or lileuce the works : that such a situation, in tlie presence of an armed garrison, liable to surprise, to have their rupplies tr their retreat cut off, and the tutantc 10 immense Irom which orders couui Do received, rendered the conduct of general Jackson oot oulf undeserving otteenjiee lo pliru, but entitled him to public gratitude (or this new proof f his eMlautrr. luuzment, and ten devotion ; ;hit If a war with Spain was so full of dansrer to the administration, the saenbee or general Jaclr - on would be still more fatal i that the country would oot submit to an injustice so flagrant ard Ignoaiioinu to any government. The second question was, therefore, determined in the nega tive. 1 An effort was made before the rot upon tlrr third Question, to renew the consideration of the first t and in the event of any declaration of war oa the part of Spain, t!en to acknowledge the independence 01 the Boata AmenranMates, and nter into immediate measures for an a'ducco, offonsiv aod defensive, with th new states ; th expediency of this was, w are told, urged with more than common eoerzr: we nate ncarc nmewhat further of the arguments; but we prefer giving this much only, hcau'e w do oot place entire dependence on the information however remarkably it squares with facts that are notonou?.
