NEW york, august 15. ~ pon Thomas Sloughlon, by order of his Catholic Majesty's GoverHment, communicates to the merchants and the public the tolluwing Rtiyal Decree : "His Catholic Majesty, with a view to encourage and promote domestic and foreign trade, has been pleased to decree, that )n, future Ihe price of every modin of sail of 24 faoegas, that shalT be exported from Spam, from the well-known factories of La Alala, Torrevuja, and Iviza, either, in Spanish or foreign bottoms, of whatsoever denomination, shall be 50 rials vetlon, instead of 6U rials 8 maravedis, the price formerly paid at tbe aforesaid factories, and that a bounty of sixfanegasnf salt for every 100 fanegas that shall be exported, shall be allowed to tbe Captains of all such vessels: it being well understood that under no pretext whatever they shall sell said salt within Ihe kingdom; and in case of cunlraveniiig this order, the Captains, vessels, and cargoes shall be liable to the penalties therein made and provided." �� , � In spite i>f all the efforts of the; Government to break u|j and punish the pirates which ure conti-.nually hovering on our coast and coinmittmg tveVy species of villainy, it wot^ld seem they increase itr Tiumbers. They now oppear in fleets, lustei^d ff single vessels, with boats and crews well equipped for running into our bays i:iid�liarbanrs and plundering every thing they come acrosi. Until our national vessels are sent in purstiitof them, dorhed with authority to hang 0|> to the yard-arm every piriUical scoundrel they fall m with, we despair of seeing an efftctual check to their career ofwick-ediiess. - - bai/riMOKE. Within the last twenty years events, have occurred in Pallimore not calculated to create favourable impressions, but-vvhich have been, nevertheless, unnecessarily exaf^geraleii and discoloured ; she has been called mob tuwn, the depot of pirates, buc-caniers, bank speculatoFs, and the head-qOariers of foul spirits and daring adventurers ; attempts have been zealously made to prejudice the whole Union, if not the world, agaiijst her., Thw unnatural warfare is discreditable to our country. Baltimore has had ils errors; has any city been exempt? -She has had bank speculators-s^o have we, and Very corrupt ones ; slie has fitted out privateers-we have detected our merchants engigfd in the Slave Trade. Let us be true to ourselves, and we shall not misjm(ge others; and, above all. It IS incumbent upon us lo stifle every attempt t� inftire the reputation of a. sislt-r cily either in character or commerce. B;iltimore is the most eutcr-pri.-^ng city in the Union, and inferior to none in public spirit: this is attested by her public work-. Sixty years ago there were scareMy sixty limises in Baltimore, which now has a population of sixty thousand inhabitants. With a spirit and enterprize honourable to our country at large, the citizens of Baltimore have not only t-ncourasjed what is useful^ but have- equally patronized what i� ornamental; The Washiiiglon monument, whidi, whto com^ pleled, wijl probably co^t 150,000 dollars,- is a proof, at, once, of taste, hberiility, and patriotism^ The battle monument, gralefully erected to comi memorate those who fell in the defence of the city, IS ..another evidence in fayonr of the "arts and their encoi^agemeiitv The Cathedral, the most splendid and costly in ihe Union;, ari^h, though simple, chapel of the Unitarians ; several elegant churches; an extenebive -and well-endowed hospital^and other charitable institutions, evince how much h-as been done, for rebgiou and benevolence, .  In relation to commerce, there is no Exchange tn this, country equal to the new ioue. in .Baltimore; and,.-for comfort and convenience,- it far surpasses the Royal Exchange at "London, and is equally as liuht and beauliful as Ihi^'Eschange at Bourdeiiujf. iVhetkwe see a young city malting such greuttf-forts, and eviiiciiiK; a aeal so liberal in favour t'f aits, science, ireligion.charitv, and . commerce, every hand ^sliould be stretched forth to encourage aod assist, not tOvimpair;or destroy. ; ; .

The folldwiiig article is from tiie Correo di Oro-noco, of llie I7ili June, and is uudersj[QDd to be tiie ofRcial deflaration of ihe sentiments of the P*arrio: Government at Angostura on the political changes in S(i!Uii, and ot the irifer lo winch they were expected to give rise from Monllo, iht Spanish General,, of a iieKOfiuiioti for a Cfssaliou of hositiliries. ** There is a rumour in town of Ihe arrival at Barbadocq of some Spanish otijccrs on theTr route to Cararcas, with -propusiliuns fur an ainncfily to the President of Columbia, until the Cortes shall a-quemble and determine the question uf wiir or peace with South Amsnca. This rumour, which may he so agreeable 10 ihnse n-no arc adverse to tbe further ex-peniliture of Iiunian bluoil, wants confirmation. " III all the documents which we have seen issued by the Provisional Junta of Spam, we have discovered nothing about South America, except the re.cstablishment of the old department for the administration of affairs of the dominions beyond ihe sea. It may be that by Ibis channel those proposals of amnesty rumoured are to be tendered to the' people of South America who have thrown off Ihe yoke of Spain. If Itie Pruvisional Junta at Aladrid should be actuated by the same generous feelings as the chiefs who hare liheralcil the Peninsula, iiothiug rould he, more proper than lo put a slop lo that effusion of blood which had been the delight of Ferrlinand and his satellites in Fentznela. " Morilln, whii was ihe prime tnstrumcnt of massacre and desolaliun, has been continued in that station in which he had wrought so much massacre and cruelly, although he was -well apprised �f' the generous seutmients ami moderation ot those Chiefs, made kuown every where by Ihe publication of their magnaiimious views. Morilto, who cannot exist but amidst the slaughter of mankind, and the ruins be has made, has compelled Ihe people of the Republic L of Columbia to con^nue hostilities by sea and land: We had. been before arquaiuied, that the instructions giveii, by AInrillo to the little naval sqiradron which departed: from Cumana, in April, 1811, were to kill, burn, and destroy every ihing which fell m their way, without re-sci-valionor distinction; and those orders were signed by this atrocious monster when be ivaa fully apprized of the full and (ffeclive progress of the insurrection-in.favour of the Cuiistiiulion in Spain ; of the oath taken by Ferdinand to maiutain and obey that Conslitufioii; of the establishment of the Provisional Junta; of the liberation of tho.<;p patriots and sa*es of Spain who had been consigned to dun-i^euns and fortresses, and the Inquisition, on account uf their political opinions; of the abolition of th6 tribunal of Ihe Inqnlliiin; and the re-establishment of the freedom uf the press. ' It were to he wished that hosiilitics had ceased at the moment that the proclamation of Quiroga and Acevrdo was received at Caraccas. But Monllo-pursuing bis sanguinary system, the iieressily was imposed on us of defending ourselves, aod pursuing to justice a remorseless and perfidious .. enemy. "It IS not possible lo ascertain at present what may. bp the nature of Ihe proposals for an amnesty received by way of Bitrbadoesat LaGuira, if any such have been there received ; neither can it he possibly.determined whether such pruposaJs will be rejected; nor whether they will be accepted, in case of Ihcir being such as may be receivable. What precautions would not beuecessaiy lo prevent any accidents that nii�:ht hedepenilaut on Ihc character and conduct of ageiits removed at � great distance from their principals? Suppns--ing that the Provisional Junta was more worthy of trust than Ferdinand; and thai Monllo himself was not less entitled lo confidence in his honour, or humanity,- or faith,, than the Junia; silll great evils might arise unl of circumstances not always lo be foreseen, but against which it would be the extreme ot folly not to be prepared. These consideralions must'be imperative on all those to whom overtures may^be made, when 11 is considered that the superior authority of the aiWerse p.irly who make the oveitore is at 2,000 leagues dislance;^lhis is an inconvenience inseparable from the laws and constiliilions which are 10 operate at so great a distance. "Amend and improve ihe Constitution of 1S13, as much as ' its general character will admit, these countries, ^so far ' removed from the seat of its operation, can never alike p:u--ticipale in those ameliorations; one of them never can, like Spinn, derive advanlaije from a faithful observance even of ils'fundBmeiital principles. This Constitution was roinmu-niCBled tu Sunth America in the.ycar of its pnblicatidn,-and 10 Peril, Alexico, aiul Venezuela; but it was made a mere machine for oppression m the hands of Callpjas, Monlc-vrfdpf and Abascal. Not a sinsle evil exercised bylhese .satraps uf despotism was remedied under its establishment; mid the people of Pern, M^ico, and Venezuela, remainef) a-, much oppressed as they had been at any prior period, mt'lei-Ihe preleiuled shade of this potent Constitution; thns c
