In my last letter to your excellency 1 took ocoaiion to mention that it was of great importance to the state at this time to have a representation here; as points in which by its present situation it is particularly interested are day ly and will be dayly agitated. It is also of importance at tliis moment to the United Mates (not only lrom general consideration!.) but because we have a very thin representation in Congress and are frequently unable to transact any of those matters which require nine states. 1 wish your Excellency would urge a couple of Gentlemen to come od, as it becomes highly inconvenient to me to remain here, and as 1 have staid the lull time to be expected. I observe with sincere regret the iutemperata proceedings among the peoplo in different parts of the btate, in violation of a treaty the faithful observance of which so deeply interests the Unitad States. Surely the State ot New York with its capital audits irontier norts(on which|its importantjfurr trade depends)in the hands of the British troops, ought to take care that nothing is done to furnish a pietext on the other tide.eveu for delaying much less for refusing thu execution of the treaty. We may imagine that the situation of Great Britain puts her under a necessity at all events of fulfilling her engagements and cultivating the good will of this country. This is no doubt her true polioy , but when wo feel that passion makes as depart lrom the dictates of reason?when we have seen that passion has had so muoh influence on the conduct ot the British councils in the whole course of the war?when we recollect that those who govern them are men like ourselves and alike subject to passions and resentments?when we refloat that all the great men in England are not united in the liberal scheme of policy with respect to this country and that in the anarchy which prevails there is no knowing; to whom the reins or government may be committed?when we recollect how little we are in a condition to enforce a compliance with our claims?we ought certainly to be cautious in what manner we act, especially when we in particular have so much at stake, and should not openly provoke a breach of lailh on the other side by setting the eaample. An important distinction is not sufficiently attended to? the fifth article is reoommendatory of the sixth positive. There is no option in the particular states as te any future Erosecution confiscation or injury of any kind to person berty or property on account ot anything done during the war. It is matter of discretion in the states whether they will comply with the recommendations contained In the fifth article ; but no part of the sixth can be contravened by them without a direct breach of public faith and of the confederation. The power of making treaties is exclusively lodged in Congress. That power includes whatever is essential to the termination ol the war?and to the preservation of the general safety. Indemnity to individuals in similar cases is an usual stipulation in treatise of peace, of which many preceuents are to be produced Should it be said that the associations of the people without legal authority do not amount to a breach of the public faith, the answer is it the Government does not repress them and prevent their having effect it is as much a breach as a formal refusal to oomply on its part. In tne eye of a foreigu nation if our engagements are broken, it Is of no moment whether it is for the want of good intention en the government or for want of power to restrain its subjects. Suppose a violence committed by an American vessel on tne vessel of another nation on the high seas, and after complaint made there is no redress (riven? is not this a hostility against the injured nation, which will justify repriials 7 But if I am not misinformed, there are violation* going on in (ormoi lam. 1 am told that indictment* continue to be brought under the former confiscation law* a palpable infraction if true oi the sixth article of the treaty; to whieh an immediate stop ought no doubt to be putIt ha* been said by some men that the operation of thi* treaty i* suspended 'till the definitive treaty; a plain subterfuge. Whatever is clearly expressed in the provisional or preliminary treaty is as binding from the moment it is made as the definitive treaty, which in fact only developes explains and fixes more precisely what may have been too generally expressed in thu former. Suppose the British should now send ewty not only the negroes but all other preperty, and all the public records belonging to us in their possession on the pretence abovestated, should we not Justly accuse them with breaking iaith f Is this not already done in the case ol the negroes who have been carried away, thougn founded upon a very different principle, to wit a doubilul construction ol the treaty not a denial of its immediate operation I In fiuu it it our interest to advance tins doctrine and ts countenance the position that nothing it binding 'till tbe'-definitivs treaty when there are examples of ytan intervening between the preliminary and definitive treaties7 Sir Guy Carleton in his correspondence has appeared to consider the treaty as immediately obligatory and it ha* been the policy 1 have persued to promote the same idee. I am not indeed apprehensive of a renewal of the war ; for peace is necessary to Great Britain. I think it also most probable her disposition to conciliate this country will outweigh the resentment* which a breach of our engagements is calculated to inspire. But with a treatv which has exceeded the hopes of the most sanguine, whicn in the articles of boundaries and of fisheries is even better respect to the meant of making war, I think it the height of imprudence to run any nek?Great Britain without recommencing hoatilitiea may evade parte of the treaty. She may keep poatetaion of the Frentier poeta, the may oliatruct the free enjoyment of the fisheries?the may be indiapoeed to auch extensive concessions in mattera of comineroal aa it ia our intereat to aim at?in all thia the would And no oppoaition from any foreign power, and we are not in a condition to oblige her to any thing?If we imagine that France obviously embarrassed herself in her finances would renew the war to oblige Great Britain to a reetoration of our irontier posts, or to a compliance with the atipulationa respecting the fisheries (especially after a manliest breach of the treaty on our part) we speculate much at random. Observations might be made on the last article which would prove that it ia not the policy of France to support eur interests there. Are we prepared forthameregratiAcation of our resentments, to put those great national objects to the hazard ??to leave our Western frontier in a state of insecurity 7 to relinquish the furr trade and to abrige our pretenaioua to tha fisheries 7 Do we think national character so light a thing aa to he willing to aacrliioe the public faith to individual animosity 7 Let ths case be fairly stated : Great Britain and America two independent nations at war ; the former in possession of considerable posta and territory belonging to the latter, and also of the means of obstructing certain commercial advantages in which it is deeply interested. It ia not uncommon in treaties of peace far the uti pom<Utis to take place. Or.-at Britain however in the present i a stance atipuletea te restore all our posts and territoriaa ia bar possession, aba even add* an extant not within our original claims mora than a compensation for a small part cedad in another quarter?she agrees to readmit us to a participation of the fisheries, what equivalent do we give for this 7 . . . Congress are to recommend I tha restoration of property to those who have adhered to her aad expressly engage that no future injury shall be done them in person liberty or property?This is the sole oondition on our part where there is not an immediate reciprocity (the recovery of debt aad liberation of ' prisoners being mutual, the former indeed only declaring what tha rights of privats faith, which all civilized nations hold aaerad, would have dictated without it)?and stands as tha sinffie eouivslani for >11 th? r?.t...i ?.. ceaaions to be mede by Great Britain. . . Will it be honeat in ue to violate thia condition or will it be prudent to put thia in competition with all the important mattera to he performed on the other aide? WILL FORK.ON NATION# BE WILLING TO UNDERTAKE ANY THINO WITH US OK FOR US WHEN THEY FIND THAT THE NATURE OF OUR GOVERNMENTS WILL ALLOW NO DEPENDENCE TO BE PLACED UPON OUR ENGAGEMENTS ? 1 haeeotnitted aaying any thing of the impolicy, by our aererity, of inducing a great number of uaeful citizens, whoee aituatioue do not make them a proper object of resentment, to abandon the Country to lorm settlements that will hereafter become our rirala animated with a hatred to na which will deacend to their poaterity. Nothing however can be more unwiaa than to contribute aa we are doing to people the ahorea and wilderness of novaaootia, a colony which by ita poaition will become a competitor with ua,among other that branch of commerer on which our navigation and navy will aaaentially depend. I mean the fisheries ; in which I have no doubt the atateof New York will hereafter have a conaiderable ahare. To your Excellency I freely deliver my rentimenta becauae 1 am perauaded you cannot be a atranger to the force of theee conaiderationa?I fear not even to hetard them to the juetice end good tenee of thoae whom I have the honor to represent. I eeteem it my duty to do both, becauao the qneetion ia important to the intereata of the State, in Ita relation to the United State*. Thoae who oonault only their paaaiona might chooae to oonatrue what I eay aa too favourable to a eat of men, who have been the enemiea of the public liberty ; but thoae for whoee eeteem I em moat eo .cerned will acquit me of any peraonal conaiderationa and will perceive that I only urge the caute of national honor aafety and advantage. We have aaetimed an independent atatiou , we ought to feel end to act in a manner conaiatent with the dignity 01 that atation. I anxiouilv wish to aee every prudent meaeure taken to prevant thoae combination* which will certainly disgrace na, if they do uo not involve ua in other celamitiea Whatever distinctions are judged neceaaary to he made in the ceaee of those persons who have been in oppoaition to the com anon cauae, let them be made by legal authority on a fair conatruction of the treaty, consistent with national faith and national honor. Your Excellency will have been informed that Congreaa have instructed the Commander in Chiei to garriao . * the frontier posts when surrendered with the three years ' entlnenul troope for nlnt months Thie is more for the interest of the state than to have them garrisoned at ita 1 E NE NE1 particular expense, and I aliould w ish that permanent proviaion might be made on the same principle*. 1 want to aee whether any Continental peace establishment tor garrisons lie. wil| take place belore 1 euguge the content ol Congreal to a separate provision.

Your very friendly letter* of the 10th ult- and 'id and 9th instant by Mr. Barclay, gave me pleasure. Accept my thanks for these instances of attentions, and be so obliging as now and then to tall me how you do, and what political opera iona distress or promote the public weal. The Bill respecting tha Council of Hiviaion is a most insidious measure. 1 always wished to see these Proceed, ings published.and think this circumstance will ailord full justification to that step. The real formers Plan ol Finance is to abominably wicked as well as unpolitic, that it ought to be exposed, and the eyes ot the public turned to the author. We have no late accounts from Oeorgia, there is littlo Reason however to douot of the Enemy's being Infull possession of it. Large Reinforcements are ordered and probably gone to Oen. Lincoln- What hit force will on their 1 arrival amount to it uncertain; nor can we be certain that they will ba equal to the Recovery of that State.

Pennsylvania is under similar circumstances with you, and will equally demand and be referredtohi* care and protection. His respect for New York,and the personal Regard he assure* me,he entertains for the Governor will ami persuaded unite with other more general considerations In drawing bis attention to your exigencies and aiforuingthe State all the security in his power to give. Tne scarcity of bread In the East and South is become a serious subject, and I hope care will betaken to prevent so great a calamity in New York. Give while you hare to spare, but regard to self preservation ought to set bound* even to acta of benevolence. One of our frigates ha? sent a flue armed vessel oi 10 J funs into Boston. The coast from Delaware to Cheaepeake s extremely infested by Privateers from the city of New York. The merchants here are preparing to protect their trade by fitting out armed va'selsfor the purpose.

J8th, 20 Miles from Tioga. Sia? la my last I gave you a short account ol the action with Battler and the mvivki of August last. On the Slit of the Mma month the army marched for Kanadasega, the hetber capital oi the Seneka country. Our rout was through French Catharino'stown and Kendaia, along the eastern aide of the Seneka lake. We arrived at Kanadasega on the seventh instant without the least opposition fom or even the sight of au enemy This large to ivn contained 50 or #0 houses, was situated about three miles west of the eutlet of the lake which we forded, and eighty miles from Tiaga. After the destruction of this place the army proceeded forChem see, the upper capital of the nation, where we arrived on the 14th instant without opposition, excepting the loss of sixteen men, an officer included, who two days before being on a reconoitring errand, unfortunately were intercepted and killed by a large body of Indians and Tories, who I believe, were on their retreat to Niagara. Genesee was about 80 miles from Kanadasega, and by far the finest of the Indian towns. It consisted of, I think eighty houses. On the 16th we commenced our retreat and arrived atthit place on the 44th instant- We have been waiting hers three days for the arrival of two large detachments of the army, despatched on each side the Caiuga lake to complete the destruction of that nation. The parties have arrived and have effected their purpose. Your Excellency will excuse my not giving you a more particular description of the campaign and suffer me to conclude with tnis, That we have marched through, by far.the finest country I ever saw, burned forty towns.most of them large destroyed, I believe, one hundred thousaud 1 bashets of corn, besides large quantities of beans, he. But I cannot finish without expressing my despicable opinion of the enemy we were pursuing. They made a pitilul opposition at Newtown, and never again showed their faces. I beg your Excellency's caro of the enclosed letter for i Mrs. Barber. Poor girl, it wtll make her happy.

TUESDAY MO fifteenth Aniiuitl Fair uftbe Ainrrlcaii Institute, at JVIblo'a Otrden, 1*4*4. Monday, Oct. 17. On arriving at the Garden yesterday morning, we found several of the officer* of the Navy and of the Army present; among thein were Com. ferry, Capt. J. K. Sands, Gen. Wool, the Hon. John Harney, and others. Gen. Wool has been engaged lor some time |>ast in reviewing the fortifications at Newport, New London, and New York?having spent the last week here. We found them all more or less busy in preparing for the great Nautical Exhibitions ot this day?in conjunction with the Nautical Committee of the Institute, which is composed of Judge Lie Kay, of New Jersey, the chairman, M. E. Tnonipsoa, Esq , Warden, Capt. Barnard, and T. B. Wakeman, Esq. Leaving them to complete their arrumrements. wo took a stroll through the garden. In the passage from the Main Saloon to the Cloth lloom, ws noticed an uuusually convenient and useful sofa, called N. M'Uraw's patent premium extension sola, sold at 463 Broadway. We are informed that it has taken the premium at six different Fairs, and we do not wonder at it, especially for its admirable combination of simplicity and utility. Don't tail to look at it before purchasing elsewhere. WdtTBT OW smkfuu. notice.?Wo call attention to the following articles as all excellent in their kind. The public will please to look at them, to wit:?in the main Saloon. No. 10, a case of perfumes of superior quality, by John Wyeth, 09 Barclay street. No. 71, two cases of beautifully bound books, by D. Appletunte Co ,200 Broadway.

No. 185, in the cloth room, very excellent articles of India rubber goods, by Horace H. Day, 45 Maiden lane. Francis' Like Boat.?The new transparency just ,.ui u(j mule cnu 01 ine main walk, at the Fair, is a vivid representation of one of the awful scenes in which Franc is' Life Boats have proved their useful- ' ness, it adds much to the interest of the Fair. It displays the ship on fire?the ordinary boat swamped, and the drowning passengers striving to gain the uife Boat, which cannot sink. The Catalogue.?A new catalogue has just been published by the Institute, containing a correct list ol every article exhibited at this present lair. Price one shilling, to be had of the door keeper. A Word to Ladies and Gentlemen !?We believe all our citizens are well acquainted with the fact that the cattle show is to take place under the auspices of the American Institute. We happen to know that a greater show than ever was brought together in this State will be exhibited on this occasion. We have seen the list of entries, and there is n? mistake. New, at Albany, Piiiladel|<hia, und alt over England, the ladies are tin constant visiters at agricultural exhibitions, and their presence gives great ccUit to these meetings. We have splendid weather, an accommodating committee, who have made all suitable arrangements, and the whole affair seems to demand that our ladies should cheerfully accept the invitations of the gentlemen, and visit the cattle field. Grand Nautical Exhibitions this Day (Tuesday, the 13th.)?The splendid nautical exhibitions ol tiiisday will take place in precisely the following order, at Castle Garden, where the only good view can be had. And here we should say that Messrs. French and Heiser bear their proportion of the expense of the exhibition with th. A ? *?:* ' At ten o'clock A.M. precisely, a gun tront the j North Carolina will announce the commencement of the regattas,the first of which will be of sail boats, if the wind is tavorable. Other guns will be tired from the North Carolina from time to time, at the ruuning up of u signal trom the garden, say one at 11 A.M., at 1 P.M ,2 P.M , <Jcc , each of which will give notice of the com- 1 mencement of a race. Morse's Electro-Magnetic Telegraph.?This j important invention is to be exhibited in operation , at Castle Garden between the hours of twelve and ( one to-day; one telegraph will be erected on Go- 4 vernor's Island, and one at the Castle, and messages 1 will be interchanged, and orders transmitted during ) the day. Many have been incredulous as to this powers of this wonderful triumph of science and art All such may now have an opportunity of fairly Met j ing it. It is destined to work a complete revolution \ in the mode of transmitting intelligence throughout j the civilized world. 1 The Great Explosion.?This is to be an explo- I won of the brig Vota, of 260 tons. At precisely one quarter to 4 P.M., a signal gun will be iirea from the North Carolina to call the attention of the * multitude in the garden. And immediately before j the explosion there will be fired, as before, three ^ guns in rapid succession, and at four o'clock, to a second's time, the brig Volta will be blown into A 1,766,901 pieces, according to our calculation. ^ The Centripigal Railway.?This aflair will be in operation throughout the day. Step in and C take a somerset. 3 Life Boats ?we understand Mr. Francis, the ti inventor of *' The Life Boat," is unable to give an B rxbibition to-day before the American Institute at Castle Garden, lor the following seasons:? 1st, lie _ ixpected to have had the use of three boats that ^ lave saved lives from wrecks at sea, but the eh ps u laving them on board sailed a few days since. 2d, w he large life cutter, built for the navy of the two ji 3icilies, was ordered away sooner than was expectid, and lastly, little can be added to the reputation 7 >t the boat by a smooth water exhibition?this is " he best reason of all, for she is only at home, und ? n her true element when boarding wrecks in aw- n ul storms at sea, and has done a Targe business of ate in that line. ^ Estruct from a totter, from the Caploin of the Steamer Cla T rion, recently toil on the North Coait of Cuto, to the in- J< vent or of Fromcit Lift Boot li " The aea would make a fair breach over tha 1 Lift V lost,' (till iha would be buoyant although part of the If lolea t let tbo water out or the bottom were (topped ; a nan wai lowered into the boat to open all thr hole*, which, R lotw ilhatauding almost every aea went over her, Irom end r oend, the immediately would free heraeif and fit like a 3< luek on the water.

A* the i'e*t meau*of meeting our friend'* wiahee on the surest, we have taken leave to enclose him a letter of introduction to you, with a request to afford him the facilities he requires, provided you had it convenient, safe, and profitable to yourself. Mr. Caldwell ha* in our hand*, (and subject to no charge*,) one thousand and eleven bale* ot cotton, weighing 409,000 lb*, quality averaging " good fair," and worth in this market at present prices, at leMt tilty thousand dollars. This cotton arriveu late in the oity, and by our advice has been held to sell with the new crop, now just come in. Mr. Caldwell and his family are amongst the very ttew planter* oi this State who are t ntirely free iron debt, and he is a solvent and very worthy gentleman. The cotton in oui hands constitutes the last year's crop of Mr. Caldwell and his mother, and the whole of it is subject to hi* order ; therefore any arrangement made, predicated on the cotton, will be perfectly sale. If Mr. Caldwell can do ao better, he is authorised to value on our house lor any sum not exceeding thirty thousand dollars (at not less than thirty days sight,) and his bills should be duly honored and protected. Should he determine on this course, we shall leel greatly obliged if you will procure the negotiation of any bills drawn by him on us to the above ami. We shall also be thankful lor any attention show n our Iriand during hia alay in your city. With much leapect we remain, Vour oti'dt serv'ts MAUNCEL, WHITE, V COMr. Ciibborn, not wishing to enter into the transaction himteir, mentioned it to Mr. Corrie, who undertook it in behalf el his huuse. Mr. Clibboru notitieJ " John P. Caldwell," at Alexandria, to that effect, (having also received a letter, purporting to be fr?m such.) In two or three days he received another letter from " Caldwell," enclosing bills of exchange on Maunael White Is Co., m favor ol Corrie, which were accompanied by an order for the cotton. Mr. Corrie endorsed the bills?they were discounted by the Bank of America, and the bills of that institution, (being 14 $1000, one of $400, and one of $100) sent by Mr. Ciibborn to "Caldwell," with an intimation that the marks and numbers had been retained. None of these bills were afterwsrds found in possession of Edwards, but it would be proved that he had exchanged them, and that bills given to him in exchange, were found in hia trunk. The testimony, for the most part, appears to be a repetition of that on the former trial, and therefore unnecessary to publish.

He was then ordered out of doors, and in going, the defendants helped him along for the insult thus offered to the captain el the watch. For the defence it was proved that he was ordered out of the watch house for his insolence, aud that defendants aided in obeying his orders. The jury found an immediate verdict of net guilty.

Officer Stokely testified that he arrested Egarton on the -jsth of July, in the street, with one of the tolen coats on his back. The defence proved by George Newburg and Charles Slater that they saw prisoner buy he coat of a pedlar, at the corner of West Broadway and knthony street This evidence was not of a very satishctory character to the minds of the Jury, as they renamed absent for a length of time, and ftually returned 1 verdict of guilty.

Brougham is a very beautiful woman, possessed ot considerable talent for comedy, ana would make a very valuable acquisition to the slock company, tier husband haa much comic humor, and as an actor in Power's line of characters, is far above mediocrity. Simpson, with his usual want of tact, brings out Handc)'* "Moses in Egypt," with Rossini's additions. The |>art composed l>y Handel iaof ? ???? magnificent sclmol of sacred music, consistm* * some ot the most glorious choruses extant, written in tugue and double fuge, with a masaiveueas and grandeur which no other composer ever ai proached, saving, perhaps, Beethoven, in his Hallelujah to the Mount of Olives. Rossini's portion is of a mach lighter kind, the most pleasing being the " Prayer" and the quartetto, "Mi manca la voce." The whole, however, is only fitted for the church or the concert room, and smacks strong of impiety, when dragged on the stage. It wus produced a lew seasons back at Exeter Hall, iu London, in superb style, the principal singers being Miss Rainslorth, Mian Maason, Mtss P. Horion, Henry Phillips, Harrison, and Leffler, with a splendid bund, md a chorus numerous and perfect. At the Park Theatre, in place of the above array of talent, we have Mr Seguin, in our opinion a very inferior singer, Mrs. Baily, and Mrs. ITnlokt t..?.j. . ? k,... l uiiikui, luiui^ti j fd j jivujr aiil|ClO, U Ul UUW lO DP numbered with the past ; Mr- Shrivall, a better singer than Pearson, but very inferior to Manvrrs; Mr- Archer, whom we don't know, and Mr.Seguin, |K>8sesaed of a good voice, but ponderous ana unwieldy, a novice in sacred music, and immeasurably inferior to H. Phillips or Letiler. The band to be engaged we know nothing of, but if it be the usual Park hand, with a lew additions, we predict its incompetency; beside, there is no leader in this country who can touch that description of music, and only one in London fully up to the mark,which is F. Cramer. With this cureory review wo predict a failure of this grand sacred drama Our only sorrow is, that the inischiel will not fall solely on-the heads of Mr-Simpson's ill-advisers.
