milt'MP 11s W fTTll W (Hi W 1 J V It I I) A Y MOItNl NO. I'BIIIMJAUY, 23. ' p OoMiiuw. On the lOlli ntiil 17th, the Houro wn engaged on iho neutrality bill from tin' S-Mialo. Official despatches from the western frontier, niinoiincing 1 lie re assembling of a largo armed forco within our border, bad been received nt Washing, ton, and of course produced considerable senFotion. Mr. Whitllosy declared In inlcnlinn to put aside nil oilier business until this subject was ncted upon. Mr. M'Kini said he should consider its further postponement as involving I le question of pence or war with Great Biitain our na tional clmrncter ileum tided action. The bill wns denounced in tho most unmeasured terms, by the gentlemen from tho frontier, nnd by finu olliers. Mr. Fillamnro of Bufl'dlo. nnd Mr. Smith of Maine, evinced the most Z"l. nnd dealt in the strongest epithets. The former said it was more odious than the Alien and Sedition la'-s; whilo the latter pronounced it execrable. Tho powers granted by it, to the Uxocutive arc overwhelming, extending, in effect, to an authority to disarm the citizens of n district, where dauber was to be apprehend cd of their interference with a foreign State. A letter of the 17th Fays "It wa thought yesterday, that the question would bo finally disposed of to day; but from the present aspect of tho dismission, I shall be greatly mistaken if it does not occupy the House until Tuesday or Wednesday, unless thev resort to a night Session. The bill as it came from the Senate, cannot pass. To what extent it will be altered or amen ded, 1 am unublo to jude. At, the moment of adjournment (four o'clock) a letter under dato of the tub of February, from General Brady, and anoth er from Gov. Mason, of Michigan, ilatcii the llth, were read. They were brought to Washington by express. The letter of Gen. Brady stales, that a large body of men, in detached pnrtics, were near Mnnroc, on the river Raisin, about thirty five miles from Detroit, with the design, as was sup posed, of entering Canada in hostile array. The day fixed upon according to rumor, is the 22d inst. These letters slate, that under existing laws, there is no means of preventing this invasion ofthe British tcr ritory, and therefore urge upon tho Prcsi. dent, and through him upon Congress, the necessity of nn immediate passage of the bill now pending beforn the House. The sub-treasury bili was still under dis cutsion in the Senate. Mr. Tipton spoke in opposition to the bill on Saturday, anil Mr. Clay had the flair fur Monday. The Madisouian says, that should it pass the Senate which is very doubtful it will he tbfeated in the II ittso by from fifteen to twentv votes. r O It H I (J K. The Intest foreign advices inform us that Henry Harding hns been appointed mili tary commander of l he forces in Canada, and that the ministry were acting with great vigor m reinforcing thu army in the Canadiuu Provinces. It is staled in the London Observer of Dec. 31, that minister had under coiisideiation the propriety of Tocomincnding tn Parliament, immediately after the re assembling of the two Houses anincreasein both tho army and navy the former to the amount of 15 or 20.000 men. nnd tho hitter from 5 to 10,000. One of tho reasons assigned for this measure, in addition to the unsettled state of the Canada?, is the the unfriendly tone ofthe message of tho President of the United States, upon the boundary question. The London Tunes enumerates the regiments now under sailing orders for Halifax, amounting to near six thousand rank and and file. Sir Francis Head has arrived nt New York, on hi way home. His successor, Sir George Arthur, is to have the local rank of Major General in tho Cnnadas. Ho arrived ai Halifax on tho 30th ult. Sir John Colburn was sworn in ns Gov. crnor of Lower Canada on the I3tli inst. Fro:i -run Wi:st. As wc hnvo all along uspeclcd, there is more trouble brewing by the Canada Patriot?. Tho Western moil yesterday brought intelligence that tho scattered Navy Islanders wero couccti. trating near Detroit, where several linn ilreds as was supposed, fur their numbers or precise whereabouts appear not to have been clearly understood wero collected on tho lOlli inst, and wero Mipposod to be awaiting the appearance of a commander in chief. Diiticombe and Sutherland were among them, but Ptill tho master-spirit appeared to bo wanting. Gen. Rrudy, of the U. S. Army, whn a few days before had thought it unnecessary to call tho militia into service, believing the patriut ardor completely quelled, and .the tranquility of the frontier permanently established, has called upon Governor Ma. son for tix cotnpenics of troops with ihe necessary officers, stating that from infor mation just received, ho is convinced the neutrality of tho frontier cannot bo pre 1' Forvcil williout additional troops.

In consequence of a report that Gen. Van Itensselner was in the neighborhood of Wnterlowu superintending a military expedition against Canada, tho editor of the .It ffersonian addressed an inquiry to Mr. M'Konzio, who then happened to be in that neighborhood. His reply was, "these rumors must he untrue. All connection, military or political, between Gen Van. llenssc.'ncr and the Canadians now sojourn ing on this frontier has entirely ceased, nt his own personal request , and without the most distant intention, on cither side, to renew it hereafter." FROM FLORIDA. Savannah, Feb. 7. By the arrival of the steamer Camden, Capt. Mills, from St. Augustine, wc learn that a battle was fought on the 2-1' h ult. on the Lache Ilatchee, (Locho llatchcc) in which tho Indians were defeated, though with the loss on the part of our troops, of nine killed, anil thirty wounded. Gen. Jesup is among tho wounded, having received a severe flesh wound, said to have been in the fucc. Nothing is said of the loss of the enemy, though supposed to have been great. Many cattle, ponies, and hogs, Willi other prop erty, were taken by our troops. St. Augustine, Feb. 3. Tho substance of a letter received by a gentleman from an officer at Fort Pierce, dated the 29ih of January, 1 says "Jesup has had a fight with tho Indians. The Tennesseans generally behaved well."

Tho Vermont Patriot, a supporter of tho present udmiuinlrutiou, thinks it absolutely neces sary, for fear of being understood in jest, to assure its readers that it is serious, in de claring that tho federalists arc sorry for tho death of a crusJitd and captive enemy!

They need not fear, they will never meet un acci'.sur. Oceola's was a soul which demanded, by its infinite superiority, tho reverence of bucIi a creoturo as General Jesup.

Tlio dead were hu ncd at night williout toll of hell or clnin.li service, but few have courage to perlorm the last offices. The town is yet deserted, tho public houses shut up, and the neigh, biiuring farmers in such panic that they bolt their doors ogainsl every unfortunate Woodstock person that comes to purchase

grain or provisions of them, though in both the neighborhood abounds. This is truly n sad stniu of things to exist in tho very heart of our population." This is a new edition of the Boston raw head nod bloody bones story, which we noticed two weeks ago, enlarged and im proved. If it (.Mies on improving, by the time it reaches the southern border, It will record n tnlo as horrid as Ilia reported by Mr. Cnlhn, of the Mandnn Indians, nearly all of whom are said to have" fallen victims of I he mii a 1 1 pox. UrrWill the Star do the justice to cor rect the errors of the foregoing account. Out of a population of upwards of three thousand, there have been but roun dentin of tho small pox in this town. The dtsea-e is entirely removed and none of the nlarm. supposed in the paragraph taken from the Star, ever existed hero or in Itio neighbor hood. These stories do in no harm, be eau.-o every person around us knows they , are arrant fiction". Thev are so far no incuts accompanied that officer's report to Congress, wc extract the following in rcla tion to the defence of our western frontier. The communication in question is inten ded to meet certain inquiries, which it docs in a very satisfactory manner. It is stated that the Western frontier is regarded as extending from the Red River on the south, to the Upper Mississippi on the north ; and to defend this line Gen. Cross is of opinion that it would be advisa- blo to have an exterior and interior line of posts. For the exterior line, ho thinl Fort Towson on the southern flank, and Fort Snelling on the northern, and Fort Gibson and Leavenworth (for the present.) btttween the two, and the addition of a post at the upper forks of the Des Moines river will be sufficient. It is thought that Fort Leavenworth should after a while form a pirlion of the interior line and Council Bluffs be occupied in its stead. Of these interior nnsts. the Gen. thinks there should ' be two hotwecn the Red and Arkansas rivers, four between the Arkansas and Missouri, and two between Missouri and Mississippi. They would be the auxiliary station-! for reserves and depositor of sup phes nnd also serve as a place of refuge for Ihe settlers by whom they could he defended in case of need; whilst, in time of peace they need no greater forco to oc cupy them than would he necessary to prevent them from seizure. Ho think that Pulton on Red river, Morrison's Bluff nn the Arkansas, the junction of the Osage and Grand rivers anil Loxinglon on the Missouri would answer well as depots of rupplies in the rear of these posts. In relation lo stations of reserve the He. port also says, that some one will ho suffi cient, and mentions Jefferson Barracks, near St. Louis, as a point whence in Ihe event of necessity troops might be sent, with nearly equal facility up the Mississip pi, Missouri or Arkansas rivers. It is re commended however that a minor post should be established on the Arkansas above Little Hock, that stream nut being navigable at all seasons. In treating ofthe routes ol communi cation between the several stations on iho frontier, nnd from these lo tho depots in the interior, Gen Cross is of opinion that the mihiniy road riming parallel to the frontier, from one posl to the other, being exposed lo constant attacks in case of war, is comparatively useless He says that tho communication should bo either para I lei to the frontiers or diverging from it, lo tho reserve posts with regard lo the force requisite to protect the front tor, and the border settlements and to preserve peace amiing the several Indian tribes. It U ihu General's opinion that such a thing consis tent with political expediency, 30 000 men would be no more than sutlicieul to enable the government ''tn disciiargo its duties lo its own citizens and redeem the pledge of prat oct iuii to the Indians." This number however is not recommended. A mini mum force of 7,000 men is named as indis. pensable. It appears that tho location of tho militn. ry road, has not proceeded as promptly as was anticipated A circumstance in the estimation ofthe author of the report not to be regretted, ns after a review of the matter, the government may bo induced to prefer n different course. On the whole this report is a very inter esting document and well worthy the at tention of thu public. It presents Home startling facts in iclatinn to tho policy ofl MARRIED t r ,.,Dt nt ihn In Richmond nn I no 15ih ini. !v A. B.

For should the emigrating tribes alone act in concert, putting out of view t Ii lie powerful tribes of Comanche?, Osage, nnd Pawnees, they could furnish 20 000 warriors, one half of whom arc well armed with rifles furnished them by ourselves. GOV. HEAD'S VOLUNTEERS. A letter writer from Buff.ilo gives tho following amusing account of McNabb's attempt to lead on on attack upon Navy Monti. McNnbb'a attempt to take tho Island wns ludicrous enough. He ordered hi? Canadian militia into I he boats. They refused, nnd told him In send the Indians who wero paid for fighting anil liked it. and who ihey said must take tho lend. The gallant Colonel then called upon the chiefs. 'You arc brave warriors,' said he. 'Yes Indian brave love fight.' 'Well, thou! get into the bonis, nnd go over nod light tho rebels on Navy Island!' The cliieftnin.j looked at the boa's, turned their eyes upon the black-mouthed, death deal ing artillery, on ihn opposite shore listen imI lo the low. deep roar of the Cataract. and shook their bonds. 'Are yon nlnud? 'aid 1 1 1 (j Colonel. 'No send nigger he blnekcr than us he kill no uintier.' Tin; niggers said, 'Dev go any where do white man go Ins.' And so nobody tarlcil- J he linkers raved and tore, but it was of no avail. They threatened the men with instant death they ordered the ulnrs to drive them into the boats at the point ofthe bayonet, but the men dogged ly refused. Tho British Whig, printed at Kingston, U. C, contains t lie following paragraph : After a storm comes a calm. The wars nre nvor, the day of thauki-giving is past, and pence, (not plenty) has come upon the land. The ungodly bounteous are giving away all they can lay their fingers upon broad acres, golden mounted swords, and the people's rights. Gov Head and his ultra? aro mounted upon stills the latter telling the former that ho is the mo-t won derful fellow thai ever came from England, and tho firmer believing every word thai the latter tclN.

The farmers finding they can no longer expect an ex orbitant price for their produce, aro fetch, ing it tn market, and receiving less for it now than in the beginning of winter. The people of Kingston are getting rid of llieir fright, and the tremendous galloping thro' the st reels, by those fierce limning fellows-, the Frontenac light dragoons serves 'o assure all the old women how valiant and numerous nro their faithful delenders. Having now nothing to do and very little to cat, we contemplate these great doings, and bug ourselves. CAUSU OP TIIK LATE Mlt.l) WEATHEn. A lull!
