Dr. George Davis late Surgeon in the United ""tste - Navy. In the various relations of life, he faithfiilly per. iwrmea the duttei 1 icumbent upon lum. . . . a . - Dr. lUvit was a graduate of Columbia graduate of Columbia Col lege. In the dawn of manhood he evinced quickness of perception anil a hrilli.iticy of genius. Mis enterprise arul prrseverence fir - bade him toibviht the accomplishment of any Uiing he undet took. In the year 1798, he was appointed a surgeon in the army In 1799, he ws transferred from the army to the navy. In this ccrpacity he served on the West l:ul:a station for two years In 1802, while cruizing in the Mediterranean, some difficulty arose betw een Gen. F.atou,oii' - consul at Tunis, and the Bey of tlut.Itegenci, in consequence of which Gen. Katon reti - ed, snd lr Davis was appointed aJ ifiT,m. The points in dispute Laving been arr ngeI, Dr. Davis wis selected by the President to remain t I'un'.s, ss United States Consul. After remaining a few years with honor to himielf and advantageto his country, he resigned hi situ - sti m, and returned, again to commingle with fr.rnde snd relatives in the land nf hi nativity Shortly after his return, the government 1 e - ecived ofhcisl iif x - matfoii that the reigning Bashaw of Tripoli, ht 1 refu.ed to carry in'. o eii'ect the stipulations of a treaty mad: be tween linn snd the United Mates, a' the close i.f the war which had jusl trrmuiale - d Again was De. Davis called upon to exrrcUe those powe - rs of mind. Willi which he was so happily enuosicii. ne was appsimi by the prrsi - Jcnl, on a sjciil unvsij 1 to lripoli. That a ' mission wsiofa delicate nature. Tbe Bashawi' held in bondage the family of. bis exiled bro - ther. ' At the close of our conflict with bim,l he had pledged himself to release that family but subsequently refused to redeem that pledge. - On the one hand, the administration were anxious to enforce the stipulations of the treaty, while on the other they were 110 less anxious to avoid a renewal of the war, to ob tain a release of this family. To the discre tion and judgment o Dr. Davis, the manage ment of this nesocution was submitted. II efforts were more successful than could hav been anticipated for he not only succeeded in obtaining the family, but he accomplished a reconc iba. Ion between the two brothers, ami induced the re'gning to assign to the exiled Uashaw the province of Iteme with all its re venues, which it is believed he continues to govern. Dr. Davis, on V; r ions occasions while abroad acted as a mediator between the governments of Tunis. Tripoli, and dille - rent Kuropean na tions. Impelled bv the noblest feelings, b performed maoy honorable acts ; among the most conspicuous, was Ins obtaining the re lease of a number of Sicilian slaves, held by the llashaw of Tripoli. This magnanimous and disinterested conduct, excited the atten tion of that government, and by a formal vol of their Senate, he received the thanks of that nation, borne interesting documents on this subject, were published several ears ago 111 me ror; rouo. In the year 1810 be resigned his station as Consul at Tunis, and once more returned to the bosom of his family his health impaired h.s constitution shattered 1 and has at lengtli fallen, in tbe prime of life, under the most af fliclinir pressure 0; complicated disease, 1 bit morning, at 7 o'clock, capL John Jack ways, in the bod year of bis age. tin Incuds and the .Mariue Society are particularly request ed to attend bis funeral to - morrow al'ternouu at half past 4 o'clock, from bis late dwelling No. 5 f orsylb - st. formerly tecoud - st. opposite Uio.
