Given under my hand at the cily of Washington the fifth Day of october in the year of our lord one thousand eight Hundred and to dirty arid the fifty fifth of the Independence of the United states. Andrew Jackson. By the president. M. Van Burein Secretary of state. From the Vincennes Gazette. Vincennes. In my last number the census of this Borough taken this year was inserted. It shews an increase of population during the 5ear preceding of near 25 per cent. A Large proportion of Liis proceeds from the persevering efforts of the resident mechanics and manufacturers whose Enterprise and Industry Merit All Praise. Indeed worthy men of All classes have found steady and abundant employment. The Best buildings in the place have been erected within the last Tew years some of those of Brick arc three Sto Ries High and As materials for building can be obtained at a fair Price the number will soon be increased the present and pros Clive importance of this place May be correctly estimated by glancing on the map at its position seeing its eligible site calculating the certain advantages which must inevitably accrue to the a Hole country from the contemplated improvement and ext Ensi a of our Wabash navigation to Lake Erie and knowing the Progress it is now making with its resident population and Means. At this time there Are two Cotton spinning factories in operation which daily spin a Bont 5�0 lbs. Of yarn two steam grist Mills one steam saw Nihil running two saws one of saw and grist Mill one steam distillery operation and another upon a very extensive scale progressing rapidly to its completion one Siax seed Oil press one tan Ard one tobacco and Cigar Iacoi a three Cai inet shops two hatters shops four blacksmiths shops with Edge tool workmen Hryce saddlers shops two shoe and Boot shops two Carriage and Wagon Makei s Sho a three chair and paint shops one machine and plough makers shop one watch maker and silversmiths shop one of per and tin Ware factory two master Nick layers two master tailors shops six resident physicians five prot Ichisi a lawyers with twelve dry goods and hardware stores two druggist stores and almost As Many grocery establishments and bake shops As there Are stores. Of our Public institutions and improve ments a few remarks May suffice. The Public Library has become of go feral in Terest and important results beneficial to society have grown out of its accumulating store of knowledge. I will pass Over the two printing offices although tis to the pen and press we mortals owe All we believe and almost All we know. The old University now Knox county Seminary i have already adverted to in former number. It was a Well constructed and if its management had Reinder edit As useful As its size and exterior appearance Are commanding it would Long spice have been a Blessing and an ornament of the town. A new courthouse is provided for it will be seated upon High ground to command attention whet Lier in merits much or Little. Man a additional private buildings Are also contemplated and j r guided for next season. But it is time to close this defective list and 1 purposely do so by Noti Itig with innate Joy the Jse buildings provided for Public worship. The Little Cathi Lic Church of Days of Yore and the Only House set apart l r worship in the j Ace until within a Tew years is now supplant id by a very Large Rick Cathedral. The methodist society As the next to Crest a building a it is neat and convenient. I he Presb Teri ans Are now lowing the exam Iez a building for their accommodation will be enclosed in a Hort time. The general Benefit conceited by each is . Revolution in the Netherlands. From a correspondent of the London times. Brussels a in. 2t. This would appear to be the commencement of an Era of revolutions. I left Paris on tuesday evening believing that i had seen a Happy termination of one and behold i have fallen into the beginning of another. On arriving at Halle about Lii be leagues South of Brussels this morning we heard that the people had risen last night into revolt had proceeded in great Force to tie House of m. Libby Bagnano the conductor of an obnoxious government journal had broken Liis windows and doors and entered and demolished his Fiir nature and had either Burnt his books and papers or lir own them into the streets. I he rioters had ii St shown symptoms of disorder and violence at the theatre where an obnoxious piece was l played but it was evident that their tumult was not a theatrical fit air. From the beginning it had politics for its objects arid a change in the government for its end. The cries which were heard from its leaders showed plainly the cause of the movement. These cries were Quot Down with the dutch government Quot a Quot death to the dutch ministry Quot a Quot Vive la Pairie Quot a Quot Vive la revolution Frank aise Quot a Quot Vive Napoleon 11.&Quot to the music of these shouts the populace proceeded to disarm the battalion of pomp yrs who willingly gave up their muskets offering their us storm if their conquerors chose. They attacked likewise the different corps do Garde of the regular troops and mastered them. At Day break tiie troops of the line in Gar Risco endeavoured to disperse the groups which had now got arms and in addition to the damage which they had done dts aug die night had set fire to the House of the minister of Justice Van Maiman in the Petit Sable no had entered and demolished the hotel of the governor of the capital and had attacked the residence of the commandant of the Garrison in the Square called be grand Salon. The troops of tie line in endeavouring to disperse the Friob had killed nine persons five of whose bodies i have seen. About seven o clock i eat numbers of the people were armed and compelled the governor to give them the keys of die hotel de Ville to obtain the depot of muskets Wlinich had been taken formerly from the Gai de communale. Liis Garde communale was an institution similar in almost every respect to the Garde National of France. Some of its members had retained their muskets and their uniform. In this uniform several appeared about six or seven o clock and were hailed As leaders. Ii i am Well informed the colonel of this civic Force has promised to Lead Vliem. I have conversed Widi several of Vliem who say that they appear on die present occasion not to overturn die government but to preserve the City from pillage by the mob. This however cannot be the object of tie majority who have commanded the Royal arms to be put led Down and who Are crying Quot a has Les the troops instead of allowing themselves to be beaten or destroyed in dead As in Palis retired within their Barracks till reinforcements were sent for. About ten o clock the whole Garrison of Brussels consisting of gendarmes too Jas of the line and Cavafy were drawn up in the place Royale in front of die Palace and looking to the Park. Hey had remained in Titis Posiano iii two o clock the hour which 1 now write. Several detachments have joined them idiom the posts of the Neighb Rhoud. The whole Force now ranged below me seen from the hotel de Bellevue cannot yet exceed 1,500 men. In the present excited state of the pubic mind a much greater Force should live occupied the Capitol. The thing most dreaded Here by sensible people is the approach of prussian troops which would justify the belgians in demanding Succour idiom France and thus Lead to a general War. Half past to o o clock. The troops Are still Diawn up in the place Royale and Are receiving a few reinforcements from tiie country. The work of demolition goes Fortai d us existed in die City. The governor and commandant have tied. There is a Strong belief that the Belgica portion of tie troops will fraternize with tie people or at least decline any Active part i i a contest which seems every hour More inevitable. Eight o clock p. M. The better class of the shopkeepers and inhabitants Are now under arms. Strong patrolling parties traverse the streets in every direction and in every Quarter. The tii coloured Flag however is still displayed and die people from time to time shout Vive la Republic due Vive Napoleon ii. Lots Don sept. 1. Accounts received this Day by the Rotterdam steam packet up to yesterday coniing state that disturbances had broken out at Antwerp on sunday evening when a number of Young men paraded the streets crying out Quot Vive la Quot Vive la Libei be Quot Quot Quot a Bas Lea ministers Quot Quot Vive. Potter Quot amp a. The troops were called out and four persons were killed at the departure of the packet. The merchants and Bur Geonise had i Bernied themselves into a guard Tor the j Protection of property. The King of the Netherlands it is added had left his place at la Ken and was As semling troops Widi All possible Speed Ith a de Tennina Tion to proceed at tie head of them to Brussels. His object is said to be rather to prevent the spread of the to ement in odier provinces Dian to refuse moderate Concession. The Queen of the Netherlands steam packet Ait ived at Rotterdam from London on saturday last and was immediately seized by die dutch government As were several other vessels to Tow ships with troops to Antwerp. This appears to be the most specific information which has reached us Diroughi the foregoing medium. Several things arc asserted on More questionable authority such As that the King had imprisoned a deputation Fitim bongos and Itiat among the persons shot at ant Erp was the son of the most considerable merchant of Liat City. Brussels is said to be by this time completely surrounded by dutch troops and it is to bought that he army under the Prince of of Ange will amour it to 20,000 men. London sept. 1. Evening. By a steam packet which arrived late this after Nikon we have the following important intelligence. The utmost excitement reigns throughout die a Hole Brabant. At in twerp the Belgica Flag had been hoisted and the town guard in de upon the people and killed forty or fifty. At Rotterdam seven steam boats were freighted to convey 200 men each to Antwerp. At die Hage tie Liing had refused to receive the deputies from Leige and threw those from Brussels into prison. It was also reported that one of Triem had been shot by his orders. He had deter lined not to comply Widi the demands of the people of Brabant and had ordered 20,000 dutch troops under the command of the two princes to proceed against the belgians. At Brussels ail remained quiet. Agitations but the causes of disorder lie too deep for speedy and entire pacification. From the near and Strong interests Wloch England must Teel in the Tranquility of the Nedie lands a from the direct vital concern which Prussia has in the same object and ties of Affinity which connect the House of Orange with the russian Imperial family those Powers cannot Tail to be roused to some prompt and energetic interference. The very spread in this Way of die French fire is sufficient to excite the monarchical cabinets in a degree beyond their sensation at the exp Dion of Charles x. It is highly probable that Italy has already Given serious business to Prince Metternich. As for Spain we consider All the reports of revolt there As at least premature. The London morning chronicle of the Ligan the National Republican candidate of Congress and of three Hundred and fifty a four for Marcuse , the National Republican candidate Tor sheriff Quot in the county of new Castle on the extraordinary result we shall not indulge any Unbe Connof exultation but to simply refer to he fact hat last year our opponents had a majority in this county of 511, and a Maje Vity in every Hundred of the county except Pencader which gave to or. Hazzard one vote More than his opponent. I the Hundred of Clynis Tiana Ivlin. Thompson s majority last year avas 144�?tliis year or.

This May be True but it does not appear Lilily Diat those enemies who Are yet Strong in arms and arts will allow die process to Advance without a struggle. From the beginning we anticipated a mighty convulsion the occur run fences in the do not. Welven that presentiment Promise Between the Adverse interests and claims of the sovereigns and the people seems almost impossible. Candid late for sheriff in Kent is elected by a majority 11 5. The National Reub Chau candidates for die , in both counties a e succeeded by considerate majorities in Kent the averages majority was 175, we congratulate our friends a Ery where upon the result i f the elec Tion. Little Delaware remains where she begun firm to her principles. Her Bitner is Hung on the outer Wall for Henry Clay. Facts concerning the late revolution in France. Palais residence of the present Liing of the French has frequently changed its owners and its name. It was originally built by Cardinal Richelieu and in its Day bore die tide of the palais Cardinal. Considering it a Structure too splendid for a subject he bequeathed it to Louis Xiii. This Monarch on talking possess Sion styled it the palais Royal. The family of Richelieu made some reclamations on the subject and the old name Vas restored upon the scroll above the Gateway but the designation of palais Royal ultimately prevailed. In 1692, Louis Xiv. Gave Liis Palace to his Nephew Philip of Orleans Duke of Chartres on his marriage with Marie Frank aise de by Vurbon. On the death of Louis the Duke became Regent. He rendered the palais Royal famous for his orgies six o clock in the evening once passed he would attend to no business. Ailer paying some visits of ceremony or pleasure towards supper time he retired to his apartments with ten or twelve ladies of no very strict morality and a number of his friends whom he called roues fro i the Richmond whig. If our int Diligence does not deceive us die month of november will bring Forth events in new York not less Quot electrifying Quot than the change in Maryland. If the Regency Are proved to be in a minority if Maryland Jersey Delaware new York the i eater part of new England unite the meshes to the Wes of All which Clay is a i Tain Tennessee miss Sappi and Alabama excepted if All this Happ ii As we nearly now believe it will even our contemporary we presume will admit that this change is far from desperate and that the Scales Are in fact almost equally poised.

We have received files of several Paris papers to the 2 the of August and the London coniing chronicle to the 1st ult. The revolution in the Netherlands is an event which was expected As a part of the sequel of die great vicissitude in France. It was known that the belgians had Long been disaffected to the Union with Holland inde Pendency of any minor or incidental grievances. There is much confusion in the accounts of the belgian tumults it is difficult to Fiir Nish a distinct View of what has happened and the Altitude Wlinich the King of the Netherlands finally took is not yet ascertainable. According to the last advices Twenty thousand dutch to oops were approaching Brussels the people of Antwerp and other cities of Belgium were in insurrection and so Forth. The convocation of die states general for tie 13th ult. May Hai e served o allay or tej per the popular j drunkenness and debauchery. The late Duke of Orleans at the revolution took the name of egalite and his Palace was styled the palais egalite. After his execution in 17u3, it was converted into auction and gambling rooms cafes amp c. In 1793 a military commission was established there and a Hall prepared for the sittings of the tribunal. It was then called the palais do tribunal. In 1814, on the return of the bourbons the present Duke of Orleans obtained Possession of it and held it until the Anival of Napoleon from Elba. He again established himself in it Affer the Hundred Days during which it was tenanted by Lucien to naj arte.

The gardens have been much embellished and the whole of the buildings have been repaired and beautified. stratagem. The Archt Ishop of Rheins in his late flight from the fury of the Jie Ople of France owed his preservation in Sonie measure to one of our fair country women who was a passenger on Board the packet which brought tha prelate to England. The packet was on the Point of sailing when the lady herself a roman Catholic heard a tumult intermixed with Distant cries of ahas Les jesuits and people alongside said they a Cre in search of the priests. A poor old Man had just entered the vessel in a disordered and nearly exhausted state. He w As unknown but the lady saw that he was an Ecclesias ii and pursued she hurried him therefore into the ladies Cabin and with All possible expedite ten into one of their Beds where he was Didy tucked up and disguised in Femme. A Frenchman presently appeared at the door of the Cabin which he attempted to enter but he was repulsed and sharply rebuked for his presumption and i delicacy in attempting to Force himself into a ladies apartment. Quot a Madam you have Here a Man Quot a Man indeed Quot said the lady Quot there is nobody Here but a poor old creature sick in bed. Is it possible that you Are a Frenchman and have not the a Olitesse of one is then the French gallantry perfectly extinct Quot other ladies at tacked the intruder in a similar Strain exclaiming against the want of politeness and decorum. There was no resisting this the Frenchman was i bothered and assured that no fugitives were there concealed he made a sort of apology and hastily retreated from the fire of female tongues which had opened upon Liim. There was a tumultuous assemblage on Shore and pre Sendy afterwards a cry that the archbishop was certainly on Board and a Dealand was made to Hroar him Over but die packet immediately sailed and the Frigi Tive prelate was safely landed in England.

Daniel Virrinia advocate published at Charlottsville is one of the. Most decided and even violent Jackson papers in the Union but we believe conscientiously and disinterest edly so. The magnanimity of the following just tribute to the character of a distinguished citizen of Massachusetts is in admirable contrast to the abuse which has been poured upon him from the government presses generally and entitle the editor to a respect which we shall not be deterred from offering to him by the recollection of the Gross injustice which we have ourselves occasionally received from the same source. Speaking of and doubting the probability of his Ever reaching the highest office in the gift of the people the editor rises the following language a Jya. Int.
