They express the full conviction that the plan of the colonization society is adapted in the Best manner to promote those philanthropic purposes which it is Well known the Good people of Philadelphia have Long cherished towards our coloured pop ution. Colony of coloured people in Canada. We have never expected any beneficial results from the attempt of the coloured people in Ohio to Settle themselves in Canada. Those among them who Are cherishing Hopes of Good Froni this project will meet Only with disappointment. They Are already viewed As unwelcome intruders and neither the government the people nor the climate of Canada Are favourable to their wishes. It ought to be remembered that the coloured people who joined the English in the r it Volution by War and had lands assigned to them in Nova Scotia entreated the British government to remove them from the frosty Region to Sierra Leone and that a compliance with that request alot get probably saved them from destruction. From the following resolutions however the House of ans Emily does not appear inclined to consult the wishes of those who Are seeking to Plant the Selv it to on their territory.

And them Tinti adjourned. Jesse l. Holm an. Prest. From the al Roan repository of March. We have perused with great pleasure the report of the committee appointed by a Noriee Tibig held in the Hall of the Franklin inst Ute Philadelphia on the Sll of of Tober last to collect funds in Aid of the american colonization society. The committee state that they have received the sum of 2.296. Besides one subscription of 1000 and one of �300, each payable in ten annual instal meets. Through the Aid derived from the Liberal citizens of Iii Adelphia one vessel the Liberia has already sailed for the Colony with 58 passengers 49 of which were liberated slaves and the entire expenses of this latter number were defrayed by the society in Philadelphia. In this Case the Price for transportation including supplies for the voyage was $25 each for shoe Over twelve years of nor and $12 50 for those Between 12 and 2, and Lor infants nothing. The committee add Quot within a few Days after the sail Iii of the Liberia there arrived at Norfolk after a toil-8ome journey of 600 Miles Over land on foot a company of 30 enfranchised slaves who bad been liberated by a benevolent gentleman of Georgia for the purpose of going to the Colon Yand had been expected to go in the Liberia but unfortunately were delayed ill after the vessel had sailed amp they have been obliged to remain at Norfolk waiting another Opportunity. Under these circumstances the society at Washington being anxious to Send these and other liberated slaves to the Colony but unable from the state of their funds to do so at present expressed a desire that the Mana Gerso the Pennsylvania society would provide for their transportation. This they have agreed to do relying on the generosity of their fellow citizens to enable them to accomplish the under taking. They have engaged the Brig on the part of the Canada company of introducing Large bodies of negro settlers into this province. Resolved that inasmuch As such a population sometimes surpassing and at others approaching an Equality with the Whites in several states of this continent has proved in various ways highly inconvenient and dangerous to those states it is too certain that the like disasters must flow from he same cause in this province if such projects be permitted to be effected. Resolved that the committee to whom was referred the petition of the inhabitants of Gosfield and Colchester do bring in a Bill if it be practicable during this session to prevent the introduction of Blacks and mulattoes into this province As settlers participating in All the civil rights of the people of this province.

Guises by the name of Quot Caracausi Quot there May be some difficulty in giving credit to so marvellous a Diathesis yet examples of its existence and of its leading to a migratory and fatal combustion Are so numerous and so Well authenticated and press upon us from so Many different countries and eras that it would be absurd to withhold our assent. In almost every instance the combustion seems to have taken place in females advanced in life and Imor moderately addicted to spirituous or. Good also quotes the following remark from Ivi. Pierre a Melair journal de physique Quot i confess that these accounts at first appeared to me to be worthy of very Little credit but they Are presented to the Public by men whose veracity is unquestionable.

Inc Nidis Spont Aneis in the 5th volume of the diction Ric de my define 473d Page there is an article i on this subject written by Brescher a surgeon of High standing in Paris who considers the fact of the spontaneous combustion of the human body As being placed beyond the reach of doubt. Among the authorities which he cites Are Kopp Mare and Dupuy Tren of whom the last named is a surgeon who knows no Superior in any part of the world. Orfila in his Quot Medicine Legale Quot 2d edition 2d vol. P. 559, describes the Phenomena of this singular affection. O Kas Kaskia she seemed quite flattered by it but said before deciding to accompany us she wished to mention it to her Quot Mary s fifth or was a chief of one of the nations who inhabited the shores of the great lakes of the North he fought with a Hundred of his tribe under the orders of Lafayette in our revolutionary War and a considerable Lime after emigrated to the Banks of the River Illinois. Dying he committed to his daughter the document mentioned above As a powerful Charm to secure for her the Protection of the americans. Mary handed it to i i. Levasseur who says opened the letter and recognized the signature and hand writing of Gen. Lafayette. It was dated at head quarters Albany Jure 1778, after the Northern Campaign and addressed to Panis Iowa an Indian chief of one of the six nations to thank him for the courageous manner in which he served the american cause the Secretary conducted Mary to Gen. Lafayette at Kas Kaskia. Quot he saw and heard her with pleasure and could not conceal his emotion at recognizing his letter and observing with what religious reverence it had been preserved for nearly half a Century in a Savage the daughter of Panis Iowa on her part was overjoyed at such a meeting As singular indeed in its circumstances As any which the invention of a Nove list could have devised. In expedition to Fine new Brig Montgomery will sail with emigrants for the Colony on the 25th of april. In this vessel will embark thirty slave recently emancipated by Joel Early Esq. Of Georgia with others some of Whon Are liberated for the express purpose of colonization and All constituting together a valuable reinforcement to the Colony. Circumstances required the Early departure of this vessel and it was therefore deemed impossible to obtain emigrants from Remote parts of the country. A i w respectable free persons of Colour Nerny yet be accommodated with a passage should they apply immediately to the Secretary of the society Washington or to j. M Phail Esq. Norfolk. From the now York Obsi Over. Spontaneous combustion. Or. Editor As some have called in question the statements in treatises of intemperance relative to the spontaneous combustion of the body of persons grossly addicted to that vice i hand you the following reference to the be Nedical authorities on the subject prepared by a physician of new York. H. Or. Good in his Quot study of Medicine Quot makes the Folio Wing remarks on the spontaneous combustion of the human body which occasionally takes place in consequence of the intemperate use of ardent spirits and which he Distin Lafayette and the Indian girl. Quot on returning to Kas Kaskia Quot says m. Levasseur Quot we found or. De Syon an amiable Young Frenchman of much intelligence and who on the invitation of Gen. Lafayette left Washington City with us to visit the Southern and Western slates. Like us he had just made an excursion into the neighbourhood and appeared quite joyous at the discovery he had made he had met in the midst of the Forest at the head of a troop of indians a pretty Young woman who spoke French very Well and expressed herself with a Grace at which he appeared As much astonished As we were. She had asked him if it Wai True Lafayette was at Kas Kaskia and on his replying affirmatively she manifested a great desire to see him. I always carry with me said she to or. De Syon a Relique that is very dear to me i would wish to Shew it to him it will prove to him that his name is not less venerated in the midst of our tribes than among the White americans for whom he fought and in speaking thus she Drew from her bosom a Little Pouch which enclosed a letter carefully wrapped in several pieces of paper. It is from Lafayette said she he wrote it to my father a Long time since and my father when he died left it to me As the most precious thing he possessed Quot i spoke to Gen. Lafette of the meeting with the ind Ali girl and from the desire he manifested to see her i left the table with or. De Syon at the moment when the company began to Exchange patriotic toasts and we sought a guide to Mary s Camp. Chance assisted us wonderful in directing us to an Indian of the san get tribe that he wished to visit. Conducted by him we crossed the Bridge of Kas Kaskia and notwithstanding the darkness soon recognized the path and Rivulet i had seen in the morning with or. Caire. When we were a bout to enter the enclosure we were arrested by the Barking of two Stout dogs which sprang at and would probably have bitten us but for the timely interference of our guide. We arrived at the Middle of the Camp which was lighted by a Large fire around which a dozen indians were squatted preparing their supper they received us with cordiality and As soon As they were informed of the object of our visit one of them conducted us to Mary s hut whom we found sleeping on a Bison skin. At the voice of or. De Syon which she recognized she a Rose and listened attentively to the invitation from Gen. Lafayette to come the person and character of Paul Jones. Paul Jones was about the Middle size slightly made but Active and a Gile and in youth capable of exertion and fatigue. In advancing life though he continued equally Hardy and Active in his habits it was the vehement fiery spirit that o or informed its shattered tenement and after almost every journey we find him suffering from cold and fatigue or having serious illness. He was of the complexion Usu ally United with dark hair and eyes which his were but his skin had become Embr owned by exposure from boyhood to All varieties of weather and of climate. His physio nominal expression indicated that promptitude and decision in action which were striking characteristics of his mind. His bust is said to be a Good likeness ills portrait painted in America and probably a very indifferent resemblance exhibits a rather precise looking Little Man. The style of the highly powdered hair or wig would however convert Achilles himself into a pedant or Petil Mailer. In manners Paul Jones has been described by one party As stiff financial and conceit by another As arrogant brutal and quarrelsome. The first statement May have some color of truth the last is impossible. He had reached manhood before he could have had much Intercourse with polite society and manners formed so late in life on the fashionable models of Paris and Versailles May have sat somewhat stiffly on the Anglo american who in giving up his own Republican simplicity and profession no openness and Freedom might not have acquired All the ease and Grace even if he did attain the elegance and polish of French manners but his appearance and manners must have been those of a gentleman. Mauvais Ion to a certain degree might have been tolerated in a Seaman and a foreigner but Quot rudeness and arrogance and brutality Quot must have proved an effectual Barrier of exclusion from those polite and courtly circles where Paul Jones was not Only received but welcomed and into which he made Bis own Way and maintained his place Long after he had lost the gloss and Resistless attraction of Novelty. The letter of Madame Rinsley and other published documents prove the footing he held in respectable French female society to his death and Are conclusive As to the propriety of his manners. He has again been described Asi grossly no one who puff dues his career or peruse his letters can for a moment believe a charge eve Quot absurd. From his first appearance As a ship boy he must have been set Down As a very Clever and promising lad and if not a Prodigy of learning which was i i impossibility he had far More literature than was at All us it Ial in his Day even in the very highest ranks of his profession. His verses Are far from despicable. Baron Grimm we think overrated them yet he was an admirable critic. They were found amusing and agreeable in polished society which is the very Best test and use of occasional verse namely of All such verse a the Public can Well spare and his Muse was humanizing to his own mind. We like his prose better than his verse. It is often Adu Mirable if struck off at one bit particularly when the writer gets Warni and gives Way to his feelings of indignation. It is said that a minister in Reading the despatches of lord col Ingwood who went to sea at twelve years of age used to ask Quot where has Collingwood got his style he writes better than any other of with fully More propriety Many members of Congress so far As regarded their own compositions and resolves might have put a similar question in relation to Paul Jones. He is allowed to have been kind and attentive to his Crews and generous and Liberal in All pecuniary transactions of a private nature though his correspondence shows that he was commendably tenacious of his pecuniary claims on states and Public bodies. His memoirs afforded some pleasing instances of his kindness to his prisoners and of his desire to Rescue them from the fangs of agents and commissaries. So far As the discipline descends Paul Jones was a rigid and strict disciplinarian. In his own person he appeared to have been so Mia Tient of All control and Check As to be unfit for any regularly organized service though admirably adapted to the singular crises at which he appeared. To his dress he was or at least lately became so attentive As to have it remarked. It was a better trait that his ship was at All times remarkable for cleanliness and neatness and for the same Good order and arrangement which pervaded All his private affairs he is said to have been fond of music and to have performed of rear Admiral Paul Jones. The follow my touching anecdote is related in a letter from Washington written by one of the editors of the Boston bulletin Quot a circumstance occurred in the Senate on wednesday last which demonstrates most touchingly the of that body towards tie lingering survivors of our revolutionary army. A time worn Veteran who had been waiting upon Congress for some months had seated himself upon a sofa in the rear of the senators and a he hour for commencing upon the orders of the Day had arrived when or. M Kinley of Alabama begged the indulgence of the Senate for a few moments merely for the consideration of a subject which he said might be Des path cd without do Lily. The members generally manifested some Imp Tierce to proceed upon the n Gular business of the Day. Look said or. M Kin Ley upon that venerable of the revolutionary army. He wms a Captain in the Continental Lin Ltd was taken prisoner by the Fortune of War carried captive to England and after countless hardships was restored to his native land. His claim upon the Justice of his country has already been acknowledged by the other House and he is Only waiting the decision of this body for the consume Marion of his Hopes. At this late hour of his life at the age of 80, every Day is to him a period of importance. I beg therefore that the Senate May waive for a few moments the consideration of other business the effect of this Brief Appeal was electric almost every member responded or manifested an amen and the Bill in behalf of the old Soldier passed instantaneously through its different stages without a dissenting voice. The War broken Patriot showed upon his countenance a feeling of Happy gratification and Quot went his Way presentiment of death. A correspondent of the London times of 1st March gives the following interesting relation of a scene in which Nelson and our West Are the chief figures and which evinces forcibly the impression known from other circumstances to have been entertained by lord Nelson previous to the Battle of Trafalgar that his death was imminent. The times in reply to a sceptic As to the authenticity of this Story because at the time referred to lord Nelson had Only one army admits that there May be a Triflis g inaccuracy in the detail but vouches for the general truth of the statement. It is taken altogether quite an interesting . Y. Amen can from a correspondent of the London times we have heard of Many instances of Unac cout table forebodings of misfortune or the loss of life but few can claim so Peculiar an interest from the pre eminent Fame of the individual concerned As the following it May not be generally known but it is a fact that the hero of our anecdotes Quot the immortal nel8on"wa9 a Little tincture with superstition and this was evinced in a very singular manner during a visit of his to font Hill Abbey just after being appointed to the command of the Channel Fleet
