Dependencies, and President in all Courts aud Col-
lezes within the same, Sc. Sc. &§c.
WITTER AS it has been duly represented to me, that a
considerable number of the coloured and black Popniation
of this colony, claimimg exemption from Slavery, have clan.
destincly introduced themselves as Free, which not only
tends fo the general discradit of the respectable part of
that class ; but as several of thea have no apparent means
of subsistance, it is to be feared they have recourse to
secret illicit practices for a livelihood, which if not time.
ly restrained, may inthe end be subver sive of good order.
dt is thercsorc, that } have deemed it ex pedic ut to make,
and do hereby declare, the following Provisions :
‘All and every ove of Che colored or black Inhabitants
withm this Settlement, claiming exemption from SI avery,
shall, without delay, and at the farthest, within one
month, from the date hereof, exhibit or c anise to be duly
exhibited unto His LLonor the Fiscal, such proof of their
Freedom as they may respeciively be in possesion of able
to procure, of retcr to.
**And further, in case any one of the aforcsaid coloured
or black Inhabiants, remain in default, or omit to co: nply
with the afuresaid Order, fis Wouoi the Miscalis dirceted
to causchim, her orthem to be apprcohendcd aid lodged in
the colony Gaol, there to remain watil nu y furcher Order,
with respect to then, ay the extzcucy of (heir respective
characters or cases may seem to require.’
And in order that tio plea, or cvcuse of MNOrINCE
nay be pretended of thece prescuts, Che sameiu be pub.

As no change of importance in the condition of this
Province has oceurred since your last meeting in General
Assembly, the principal object which I have to recom.
mend to your present deliberation are the necessary provi-
sions of the Revenue and appropriation for the ensuing
period, and a review of the Militia Law, which may per-
haps, by some ameodments, be rendered more cficient for
the essential purposes of defence, for which we are so
loudly call.d upon to bein a constant state of preparation,
The Royal approbation of the Act passed with a sus.

ment of the United States has been led to take a course so
directiy the reverse which every free people ina similar

this freuzy will not be of long duration, it broke out ima
declaration of war against this Meyooty, at a time when
the sanguinary usurper of France had become more thaa
ever formidable iu Eucope, and his lust of universal doimi-
tion appeared to be no longer considered as & hopeless and
romantic passiou ; in that moment the uanatural ambition
of luis American partizans was fired with a hope of shar-
tag da his expected triumph over that country which alone
conlinucd with elect to resist his destructive earcer, the
country from which they were themsclyes descended; but
a merciful Providence has since opened a prospect which
may well amoate the courage and the hopes of suffering
nations; the glorious successes which have crowned the

acoasumattuw devoutly to be wished’? in which the wise

sion, and desolution.

Gentlemen of the Council,

with much satisfaction the resul€ to be expected from your
well known zeal and ability in the discharge of the duties
ofthat important station, to which Jkis Majesty has ap-
pointed you in this Province.

The humble Address of the House of Assembly.
May it please your Honor,
The House of Assembly truly sensible of the importance
of those princijal objccls recommended by your Honor—
‘the Revenue and appropriation far the ensuing period,”
and Sfarevisal of the Militia Law,” will make them the
subjects of their most serious deliberation.
His Majesty’s Royal approbation of the Act of the last
Session, **for cae further inercase of the Revenue of his
Province,? and the order of His Royal Highness the
Prince Regent thercon, are communications from your
Honor highly gratifying to the House, ever ambitious to
obtain Ilis wlajesty’s approbation.
Poe touse also beg leave tu assure your Ionor, of
their due and faithful attention as well to such other sube
Jects as shall be proposed by your Ifonor for their cousi-
deration during the present Session, as to Treasurer’s Ac.
counts, aud all other papers and documents which your
Honor may direct to be laid before them; and they derive
wigh satisfaction from your idunor’s communication of the
improved state of the Revenue during the year past.
Vhe folly and ingratitude of the United States in the
prosecutiun of the present war against Great Britain, and
che unworthy motives (so correctly detailed by your
Honor) which have led co the unnatural devotion of their
powers, in support of sanguinary usurper, against that
Country whic gave birth to their ancestors, and protec.
tion to themselves, must consign them among nations to
obloquy and contempt, and the House unite with your
Hlonor in ascribing to the interference of a merciful Pro-
vidence the glorious successes, which have crowned with
victory thearms of His Majesty and his Allies in Europe,
and blasted the hopes and uuayailing efforts of unprovok-
ed hosGility on this Continent, which appear to be pledges
of an happy consummation, and of a general restoration of
peace and independence to the suffering nations.
The Jfouse have also the fullest confidence that your
Honor’s wise and prudent administration will contribute
not only to the present security. but also to the future
prosperity of this Province. °
To which His Honor was pleased to make the follow-
ing reply ;
Gentlemen of the Assembly,
I return you my*siucere thanks for this Address, and
gladly avail myself of the occasion to express my entire
confidence in your zeal and ambition to second my best
endeavours (o secure and promote the welfare aud prospe-
rity of this Loyal Colony.
In the endless multiplicity of accounts which pour up-
on us on all sides, every day and hour bringing its porti-
on of additional happy intelligence, it is scarcely pos.
sible for a political writer to make any due sefection of
suitable objects of preference ; he becomes confounded in
the midst of thesplendid materials before him, and scarce.
ly takes up one of the fragments which compose the bril-
liant heap, before his eye is canght by the rival splendour
of another, and he is fearful of being,accused of injastice
to one whilst he is wrapt up in attention to the other,—
There is no point of the compass, no ray in the circle of
the Heavens, to which he can now look, without sceing—
not the dawning, bat the brightening day of restored ree
ligion, civil order, and tiue liberly.—Ivery wind that
blows from every pout comes freighted with some new

He is truly unworthy of the name of au Englishman, and
almost of a man, who can possess his whole faculties in
calmness and tranquillity, amidst such general cause of
happiness. The passions are as natural to us as our rea-
son itself. And itis adefect in the moral composition of
our nature (a defect imputable, however, entirely to our-
selves), if we want u due feeling, a natural excess and ex-
trayagance, where nature intended us soto feel and ex.
ceed.—But as nothing is so injurious to any clear views
of asubject, as to have it only in this mere heap before us,
we shall endeavour, in a degree, to arrange and methodize
our views insome distinct and successive order, and there-
by (o compress the attention of our readers within certain
The first point of attention is the successful pursuit of
the remnants of the French army, under the fugitive So-
vercign and leader, the spoiled child of fortune, Bonaparte.
It is not to our purpose to repeat the detais, or the sub-
stance of what every one ought to read Ul it be imperish.
ably impressed. The battle of Hanauseems to have a dif.
ferent air to what the French accounts had assigned. Bo-
Maparte, flying w:th the most ruinous velocity from the
fatal, the fundamental overthrow of his fortunes, and al.
most of his Mmpire, at Leipsic, fonnd himself intercepted
by a march ofthe Bavarian Army into its own Immediate
line of advance; and saw that the only means of safety
was a desperate attack upon the enemy before him. It
is an evident and a strong proof of his fallen fortunes,
that the man, against whom all the assembled armies of
ail the Powers of Europe were scarce an equal match—
that this man, we say, is now scarcely cqual to the single
army of a single Electoral Power, and was detained two
days upon his road, before he could break his way thro’
this feeble line.
The second point of obseryation is the line of march and
of operation which was taken by the Allied Armies—and
in the firstinstance by tiose of the Emperors Francis and
Alexander, ‘The necessary effects of such a battle as that
of Leipsic must have been, or at Icast in ordinary cases
would have been, that it must in a degree have crippled
even the conquerors, and have retarded (hem in their pur-
suit of the flying enemy. But here we see no such crip-
pling—no such retardment. ‘Phe victorious army seemed
to have commenced and continued their pursuit with the
vigour and almost the cohesion as if they were the mem.
bers of one man. ‘They entered Frankfort with as much
order as they had marched upou Leipsic. In the numer.
ous dispatches by our own accompanying Ofiicers, all of
which are written in astyle of most admirable eloquence,
there does not appear to us a finer passage than that in

on entering Frankfort on the Matac.—The tmportance of
this passage is, that it proves two points beyond all fu.
ture dispite—in the first place, (he value of the Russian
cavalry, and secondly, the character of the spirit and en-
thusiasm now general over all Rurope. [tis this spirit,
awakened and supported by Ragland, which has accom.
plished this great work of veneral emancipation,

diately upon the frontier of Molland, and a few days,
perhaps only afew hours, will elapse before we shall learn
the confirmation of the Dutch Nbevties, by the presence
of a force against which Bonaparte cannot venture to
make movement. Let us here be allowed to add one wish:
—When Holland is thas effectually freed, let her be put
into a state which will secure her iudependence, not on's
agunst France, but agaiust every other Power in future.
Her own limits are not wide enough. Something must
be added to give her such a line of frontier, such a force,
and such a revenne, as will enable her to act: her former
character in the Political Balance of BKurope—that is to
sav, fo become a sullicient Barrier to France and Prussia.
—This was the fault of her ancicnt system, aud was the
excuse upon which Bonaparte annexed her to France.
A fourth point is the direction of the movements of
General Blucher. This venerable General (one of the
Eleves of Frederic of Prussia,) a man now in his 70th
year, has excited the just astouishment of Europe, by the
manner im which he has regeuerated the Prussian Nation
and Army ; and if admidst so many illustrious military
Jeaders it were not alinost unfair to distinguish any one
pre-eminently, we should feel inclined to say that next
to our Wellington and Graham, Blucher, was the first
General in Murope.—The opinion of the whole of the
Allicd Army, scems to be the same, for they hare evident.
fy assigned to him the ovost dificult line of operation.
The strongest fortress on the Rhine, and we believe almost
of Murope, is Khrenbrestein ; and if the Allied Armies
could once force this town and fort, they would effect.
wally be nearly master of that frontier. It may be re-
membered, what a long siege ia early part of the Revo-
dutiotw® was supported by these forts of the Rhine, and
¢ome notion of their strenght may be formed from these
circumstances. It is probable, however, that they are
for the most part garrisoned by the Confederaters of the
Rhine—by Saxons, Bavarins, &c. If this be the case,
the conquest of them will be greatly accelerated, perhaps
immediately secured, by the quality of their garrisons,
which will of course avail themselves of ay Opportunity
to withdraw. <At any event, Blucher willnot attack them
in vain; for we understand that he excels as much in the
tacties required for the attack and defence of towns, as
j0 Operations in the field.
A fifth point, and scarcely of inferior importance to any
View original of the preceding, i3 the carrying by assault, by the army
of Prince Schwartzenberg, the lines which united the téte-
de-pont.of Cassel to the fUhine. The success of this oper-
ation ensures, We presume, the easy acquisition of the
town—and therein of a very important post on the Rhine.
We cannot make mention of this circumstance, without
calling the attention of our readers to the spirited Ictter
of Sir Robert Wilson, and more particularly of the para.
graph with which he concludes it. We do not, however,
quote from the reason above assigned.-—We will not do
so much injustice to the feelings of our readers, as to pre-
sume that they have not read it.
Upon the whole of this most cheering intelligence, we
cannot but congratulate ourselves, our countrymen, and
all Furope, that in so short a space of time the arms and
example of England have terminated one of the most mis.
chievous systems of empire, which the ambition of a Re-
volutionary Conqueror could have conceived, and to
which neither modern nor ancient history can produce a
parallel. It was kengland, and England only, that main.
tained alive that spirit of resistance and self-defence, which
in all'the other States of Europe, had been broken down
by a long succession of disasters. It was England which
excited, encouraged, and supported the mperor Alex.

1,195 pieces of ordnance: of these a considerable uamber

anda much greater proportion was dropped, en passant,
between Moscow and the Niemen; so that, according to
another official return, 1,131, remained in the possession
of the Russians on Christmas eve, 1812. The use to be
made of this massy relic of the French invasion, is pointed

tion of two colossal pillars, the one at Moscow, and the
other at St. Petersburgh. The plan of the monument has
beeu given in by the artist charged with the structure, and
fiually approved of by the Russian Government. The
cannons are placed vertically beside each other, in eight
distinct tiers; those of the heaviest calibre stand lowest,
and thus the size of every range diminishes as it rises to-
wards the top, where cannon of the smallest size are em-
ployed. Aring of Russian marble forms the separation
between each ier. ‘I'he two circular ranges, one at top
and the other at bottom, are composed of mortars and
howitzers horizontally placed, so as to present the mouths
towards the exterior surface. In imitation of the Roman
rostral colurno, two cannons with brass wheels project
from each tier in alternate situations; these are, in the
drawing, sideways in tier, and facing the eye in the next
above it. The diameter in the lower circular range of
mortars and howitzers is to be 17 fect, the horizontal sides
of the granite square forming the plinth, 28, and the whole
height of the column, 84 feet.

This is one of the finest and most celebrated towns in all
Germany, situated in a pleasant and fertile plain on the
river Pleisse. Its circuit is estimated at 8954 places; but
the suburbs are well built and large, and furvisned with
gardens. Between the town itself and the suburbs, a fine
walk of lime trees were laid out in the year 1702, which
runs quite round thetown. Inthe town ditches were also
planted mulberry trees. It is the seat of a very tlourishing
and famous University, which was founded and dedicated
in the year 1409, and consists of fuur nations, namely, of
the Misnian, Saxon, Bavarian, or Franconian, and the
Polish, and contains in Six colleges ; as also, of two good
Latin schools : : and likewise of two celebrated societies, as,

towns where the contingents of the Nmpire are paidin, and

ger is going off to England, and L have only time to tell
you an annecdote, whith you may rely on as true: on
the evening of the Isth, Bonaparte c came into the room
where the King and Princess of Saxony were, and told
them that they ought to congratulate him on having gain
ed a great victory, but that he still felt himself obliged to
retire on his resources, and hoped that they would come
with him. They replied, that they followed him (oo long ;
that they now were resolved to throw themselves on the
mercy and generosity of the Allies: he then dew into a
tremendous passion, stamped about the room, and after
having giving way to his passion, he rnshed out of the
room, aud just a3 he was closing ‘the door, thrust in his
head and said to her—‘Quant a votre pere, Madame, c’est
