I have Ever thought it therefore a natural Alliance and contended for it As a Rock of defence. The letters of Franklin Adams and Lee Are die most numerous and important they Shadow out those accomplished patrons they bring us into fresh with their feelings and labors they introduce us ii Ito the cabinets of i Pinr Ujj. Spain the Queen their children and All the Royal family to the latest generations we have no room for Large extracts from the correspondence the Able letters of John Adams fill one half of the fourth and ail the nigh volume. From diem we shall take singular circumstance. A Short time since a sister and brother met together in this City after a separation of 22 years during which time neither of them had Ever heard from the other the parents of these persons and another daughter had been inti Abitanto of Pii Ladelphia and died in that City in 1807. In consequence of the embarrassed state in which they left their circumstances the surviving relatives found it necessary to sepia ate the children who were then very Young. Two relatives of the Mother took the two female children to a Distant part of the Counti a and the boy was taken by a Friend of the fax Ier to a distance from the two females. All Thiee lived and grew up and each was a a Are of the fact that a fraternal degree of Kindred bound All although the females knew not their brother s abos3, nor he theirs. One sister now resides in Soffio the other has lived a considerable time in this City where she is happily married. About two years since the brother came to reside in this City and continues to work at Liis Trade during six months his sister lived next door to the House in which he still boards. The sister had Many fruitless searches for him and even went some time since to Philadelphia to Endeavor to find some account of him but without effect. Finally she some Days since head Liis name mentioned casually in conversation and a presentiment real or imaginary struck her that he was Quot the Long sought she proceeded to her old neighbor s House and waited till the Young Man came Home from work and a scene of Mutual recognition led to a pleasure More difficult to describe than imagine after a separation of relatives so closely Allied during a period so .

At Wlinich they were composed i lie copy Jun cations of the Coran Ittzes and Cecieta Ries appointed Quot by Congress to correspond with the american agents abroad and to Dis a close in part the difficulties and anxieties under which that illustrious body Laboured include much of the military history of the revolution stated with precise and accurate i Rowledge.

Quot the revolution in America in which tic French Ding has taken an earlier and a greater part than any other Sovereign in Europe has operated so As to conciliate to Liim a consideration that is Universal. The new minister will give to Congress information the most precise in this respect and touching the part which Spain is talking at this time for which reason i shall refrain All Liose of or. I Rankila in this collection Are not however new to tiie world a part of them appealed in the edition of his life and writings which his grandson published in London ten or twelve ears since. The distinguished and competent editor of the present work Jared Sparks Esq. Observes in his explanatory advertisement -. Quot on perusing these volumes it May at first seem extraordinary Liat so Large a col Lection of letters written by Dii Lerent persons at Dit Erent times embracing topics of great moment and assuming the character of secret and confidential despatches should be generally Well fitted to meet the Public Eye. But it must be kept in mind that the writers knew their letters would be read in open Congress which was much the same As pub i Shiing them and under this impression they were doubtless prompted to study circumspection both in matter and with All deference we think Liat the natural and i Eal solution lies in the Practised ability of the writers and the character of the topics. The three ministers whom we have particularly cited above were men of Superior literary talents politicians of wide a and deep research and abundant information few of the european statesmen equated them in the Disimi gushed merits of their profession. As far As the private coir Espen Dence of the most famous of government and opt mates and favourites of the Republic of letters Lias been divulged it has rebounded to the i edit of their hands and pens even More than theh Public compositions. Ink. Sparks remarks also in his advertisement Quot when it is considered under what circumstances and with what Aims these letters were written it will be obvious that time and succeeding events must have detected Occa a Ponfil misapprehension and errors of statement in the writers As Well As the fallacy of some of their conjectures and ski emulations they were called upon to i Apple with the politics of Euronie and to discourse on a theme and execute a task that would have been of no easy accomplishment in the hands of the Veteran Diplomatist of the old these suggestions strike us As extra a Ous a inapplicable in a degree. The men in question were equal to the \ Teran Dii Doma lists and not More unequal than they to the task of fits Cushion and prediction. They Ith observing that All these considerations ought to induce us to cherish the Alliance of France and that every x d citizen of the United states ought to endeavour to destroy the remains of dose prejudices which our ancient rulers have endeavoured to inspire us with that we have nothing to fear and much to Hope from France while we conduct oin selves with Good sense and firmness and that we cannot take too much pains to multiply the commercial relations and strengthen the political connections Between the two nations provided always Liat we preserve prudence and Resolution enough to receive implicitly no advice whatever but to judge always for ourselves and to guard ourth lives against those principles in government ind those manners which Are so opposite to our own Constitution and to our on character As a Young people called by Providence to the must honorable and important of All duties that of forming establishments for a great nation and a new Palis March 12th, 1780.&Quot Quot there Are those who believe that if France and Spain had not interposed a Merica would have been crushed. There Are in other parts of Europe i am told a greater number who believe that if it had not been for the interposition of France and Spain american Independence would have been acknowledged by great Britain a year or two ago. I believe neither the one nor the other. If it was rational to suppose Liat the English should succeed in their design and Endeavor to destroy the naval Power of France and Spain which they Are determined to do if they can what would be the consequence there Aix Long lists of French and Spanish Shi s of the line yet to be it destroyed which would Cost the English several campaigns Imd a Long Roll of millions and after that they May Send sixty thousand men to America if they can get them and what then Why the glory of baffling exhausting beating and taking them will finally be that of the american yeomanry whose numbers have increased every year since this War began As i least with certainty in my late visit Home and will in crease every year in spite of All the Artma lice still valor and activity of the English and their Paris May a 1830. Quot our Alliance with France is an Honor and a Security which have <2vor been near account of David Wilson. This singular individual was one of the earliest emigrants to Kentucky. From the time of his settlement in the country till within a few years past he resided a Cav Miles South of port William at the Mouth of Kentucky River on the Waters of Mill Creek. The place of his abode and his style of living Are not More remarkable than the character of the individual himself a and All i could learn of and concerning him Are in perfect Harmony and Good keep ing. The habitation in which he spent so Many and Happy Days was composed of round poles and Kentucky mud. It consisted of two apartments simply with no out Hoise or cellar. Daring his residence in this singular place of abode he became the husband of five wives and the father of forty fix children. According to his own account of himself he was born in new Jersey in the year 1728. He is in height about five feet six inches. His muscular Frame and strength of Constitution seem of have defied the decay of years or the hardships and Bufie Tings of a Backwoods life. The scientific and curious have examined the confirmation of Liis singular being so far As practicable and they represent his Riba unlike those of his fellow mortals separate and distinct but As United together forming on each Side a solid Sheet of Bone in Short that the vital part is safely deposited in a Quot Strong Box Quot defying All attacks of foes from without. At the age of 85, he was in the enjoyment of entire health his Teeth All sound his weight about 100, and his muscular strength truly astonishing. He never Shook hands with an athletic Man but he gave him such a grip that he was Fain to beg for mercy. At that advanced age he Codd perform More labor than Ordinary men could in the prime of life. His neighbors mention As a proof not Only of his or xxx Constitution but of his undiminished activity that at his advanced age he would leap from the ground and crack his feet together with the agility of a boy of sixteen. Some five or six years since he removed to Lidiana Liere to build himself a new habitation Plant a new Colony and become the father of a new race. He is now living near Versailles Ripley county Indiana with his sixth wife and has two Cli Ildren of the new Stock. Ges had at an Early part of the week been entirely distributed and the numerous applications to participate in the pleasures of were unprecedented lord and lady Belgrave and a party from Eton were in the train As also lord and Elgin t. Leigh Esq. M. P. And several gentlemen from the Birmingham and Sheffield rail Vays All of whom their great satisfaction at the performance. At four o clock four carriages left the station in Crown Street and proceeded thro the Small Tunnel to the open cutting at Edge Hill where the Phoenix locomotive eng me was attached. The number of persons in this train was about 100. Three other carriages containing Abonit 75, were then attached to the rocket which with the Phoenix moved Oft towards Spek lands where they waited until three other Cari a Ges containing about were attached to the Ai Row. This being accomplished the signal for departing was Given and the three engines moved Oft Quot in Majestic style after crossing Wavertree Lane where a vast concourse of per Lions had assembled to witness the sight. The White Flag was hoisted and the Speed was increased to up Ards of 24 Miles an hour. At this rate they proceeded until reaching the Bottom of the inclined plane. The Phoenix with Lier train ascended in six minutes being at the rate of fifteen Miles an hour the item act and Arrow being of smaller dimensions ascended respectively at the rates of 11 and 12 Miles an hour. No assistant engine was used on this occasion which is a strike a proof of the capability which these engines possess for ascending such elevations wih a Light Load. The inclined plane being surmounted the engines again darted Forward Fri Yuent by moving at the rate of 30 Miles an hour and the Phoenix reached the Kenyon cutting in 47 minutes giving the average rate As nearly 21 Miles an hour. The rocket and Arrow arrived about three minutes of Terv Ards. After taking in a fresh Supply of water and stopping at die Sankey viaduct where the party consisting of about 240 alighted to View that stupendous erection the trains were started on their return and after a Short but most Agi enable journey arrived in Liverpool about seven o paper. A recent letter from Paris says Quot i must observe As a most creditable improvement of the French character that the voice of vengeance is not heard in the capital and almost every person with whom you speak declares regret at the apprehension of m. De Polignac and the other sex ministers. The government itself beyond their Mere and unavoidable denunciation no particular Steps to interrupt their flight and the King expressed his regret that m. Dep it Lig nac had not succeeded in leaving the country. The unhappy minister of a guilty government betrayed himself by the feeble manner in which he Susta hied his disguise As a Domestic and actually wore valuable Diamond rings and an expensive watch with the coarse garb of a menial. His Usilla Nimitz in his misfortunes has deprived him even of personal sympathy and he is so implicated by the evidence detected in the Cabinet of the tuil series that his ultimate safety is hopeless unless the government Are Strong enough i to pass before his trial the Law for abolishing die punishment of death. The chamber of Peers dare not save Librn in fact As a legislative body they ire looked upon by the people with an ominous indifference which any false step Widd most dangerously alter. The French people Are at tins moment As far As i can see or hear literally governing themselves Lafayette and general Gerard organize and make soldiers of whom they please and the King with a Good Grace registers their edicts. It is determined i am Inion Ned to proceed forthwith to bring m. De Polignac to trial. The Public voice May unfortunately be a used by the production of Strong evidence in this Case so As not to leave the minister or any other Boxly Hofmo iterate men the Power of saving him but 1 repeat that at a resent the people Are tranquil and ready to listen to moderate a late Liverpool paper contains the Fol lowing account of an recently made on the Liverpool and Manchester railway. I he fact deserves Especial notice that All the steam engines used on the occasion ascended the inclined Plain without any additional Power to that possessed within themselves. The excursion on the railway saturday last was More interesting than any exhibition that has hitherto been made on account of the additional number of engines and carriages employed on the occasion it was in fact the rehearsal of wait is to be exhibited on the 15th of september when this National work is to be opened to the Public.

My dear Sally Anne when i agreed to super Kargo to the Mary Jane i we fully convinced of the importance of die sit eat in. Tho to in whips Vas bailing we gut Hito port As Quick As the Rig Lar pact ets and i Dis x sed of our Staves and heading in no time i Promise you. I got the hard Money All Down and As i l hiked Arter the interests of the of avers 1 told the Ca Tain to hold on till i could to the Mea troilus and there i expected i Coull Lay out a Beetle of the Cash in Gull own water o de Vee pay Jar boxes and Sich Lilie notions which our people pays the Money for like nodding. 15ut i never expected to be Kitchen As i was. I am sure Sich a thing never entered my head or i should never have gone to Parish not i indeed. It is die must Unac Couil Ablest place i Ever see. Our a parishes in new England Are real Shams come Jaired with Titis Ere. It s word a trip list to and see it. Many of our american trav Caldei s Are Lille Jonah in the whale they travel a darned Deal and see nothing after All. But let me Tell you what a time i have had since i got Here. Such do Wiigs i never see Afore. 1 suppose you have heard All about die biggest Piil on t and for ought i Luniow the papers has something about me for evry body s noticed in the papers that has been extinguished in this Ailais. I did it know nothing about the troubles i was walking in the morning after i had come in the Diligence on the Brinsc of the River sin to look at the Navi gation. I was going to Cross the Ponty distorts when i seen the people running a Long like crazy folks Bare headed and Bare legged and Dio Sands of pm in a Bunch. Says 1 to a Man that was Walling along what s to pay says i Quot vitally shirt Quot says he and walked on. So i walked on too for i expected some timing or other was to pay. List then i heard the cannons Roar and Small arms rattle list As they did at stun Kington. All at to ont i seen a nother great mob with Sticks and Staves not your Merchantable slaves i dont mean but Sich As the could Lay their hands on and Quot some of them had flags of three different colors. Then they sent up a great shout but darn a thing could i understand the meaning of Quot vitally shirt Quot and sure enough some on pm had it such a thing to their backs As i Coull see. I joined in with them and they cried tool series tool series which i thought was not necessary Tor they seemed to have All sorts of tools in their hands already. But what a scene. The streets ail bombarded and barricaded win i coaches All the paving stones dug up and carried Oft thin Lis i Here s a pretty Job for the select men. Then they pulled Down All the Lluver de Luce that they could find the Royal crowns and every thing the like of that. Then i saw the whole thing As Plain Asda. The bourbons Are Down. There s going to be a Nev election for King and a revolution is taken place. Perhaj s there s been a convention or Korkus or the like of Diat. My father being one of the revolutionary characters i Tho t i ought to be two so i picked up a stick and followed the people Down Rue Street. We had it got very far when bang bang a whole volume of musketry was fired at us. I Tell you that i never heard Quot listing that avas so up was and As that Are. Sure enough there was an attachment of Light dragoons and foul tigers they called them right in our Way blazing away at us As fast As they could and wit had it much More than a priming amongst the whole of us. We fell Back As you May guess and they Artur us but Hie they got it handsomely. The paving stuns came rattling Quot Aniny the soldiers from tie windows Lilie a Hail Stone Thunder storm. They fell like old Trees before a Hurricane and it Stag Quot Ger cd them pretty considerably i premise Yon. Just at tills minute a Young Chap with a handsome uni Forni on him and a sword in his hand run up to die front where i got shoved some How or other in the scrape and clapping iii hand on my shoulder says a Brav. Sir says 1, my name is Thompson. Then says he Allons my is tons ii on Avance Zivaly shirt then they seemed struck by his bravery and cried out Zivaly Polly tick Nice which i understand is his mopier s name. And if it is she need it be ashamed of it for Sich a boy As that she May be proud of any Day a the year. Well on we went fighting like devils excuse me for ush a such a and forwards we rolled he the Waves on the Beach at Sachem s head but after a while we drove the soldiers Oft and picked up a Fine lot of muskets they left to Hind them. Then they began to cry Toole Ries More than Ever and on they went. And i got so much cons arned about the business that i thought my dear Sally Ann no Mere about the Mary Jane. By and by we come to a carnal big guardian All full of walks with houses bigger than funnel Hall and the state House both together. Here was a ten Ible sight. Thousands of people firing at the windows and doors and thousands of soldiers firing Back at them. The trouble was pretty much Oer though for All. We a crouched up closer and closer and by and by the people broke in what a crash was that Ere. Pell Mell we wont in. Down fell the Swiss boys blood flowed a torrents. All that was it killed suite Der cd or Cut stick and cleared. The grand spoons were ii cd with the most tremendous elegant things. It seemed All Silver and Gold but it went out of the windows faster than it Ever went i at the doors. Such a ruin As i never see i could have made g., speculation out of some of that stuff if i d a had it snug in Boston i Tell you. We saw one room with a ind of throne a it and one of our Fellows with Bis face All Black and by a by like the Liing of Spades got ii Ito it acid cried Zivaly Roy at which Lime they Sot up a Hustah and cried louder than Ever Zivaly shut but he looked so plague shamed and beat Down when we laughed at him Itiat i Felt sorry for the poor Parley \ Ous. Pretty soon it began to grow pretty peaceable. The people acted just As Tho nothing had happened and they began to do duty As sentry boxes others walked off to join the comrades some where else. I went along i was pretty Well tired i Pronase you. I did my share l it at pres a Cut i dont like to say any tiling about it for fear the grand jury should find a Bill Agiu but i knew Tipiere s no Law for revolutions Well on we went and at last we came to Rue Honorey Street. Then All at once they Stoppel before an old fashioned House and then Thoy cried Vive la Fayette. Of Hosa s i Here s where the Mai quis lives. I says nothing but steered for the door which Sailor like they called a port and in i went i went from one room to another for some time before i found the right one. But at a ast i found it and there sure enough stood the old Mai quis dressed up in iii uniform a Ike old general Trotter and Ever so Many me re around him.
