The insigna of the existing Government were torn down by the in-

most sanguine expectations entertained by the fricuds of
the Bourbons in this country. We have now only time
fo congratulate our readers on the glorious news, and hope
shortly to communicate more important intelligence.
March 30.—An extraordinary degree of activity is ma.
nifested by Government in sending of arms and amunition
to the Royalists, Several transports, each cat rying 10.000
Stands of arms, have sailed for Bourdeaux and other points
of the coast of France. Tt is believed in the Ministerial
circles that the passage of nu sseagers between this country
aud Chatillon, by the way of Boulouge and Calais, is
completely stopped.
Second Edttion:
The most gratify ing and glorious intelligence of the suce
cessful progress of the cause of the Bourbons has reach.
ed us, and we hasten to Jay ie before the public. A
Mrench Officer arcived in town this morning, with dispat.
ches from Nlousicur, at Vesoul, to his Majesty Louis
XVITE. An express was immediately dispatched by the
Count de la Chatee, (o communicate their conteuts to the
Mrench King at Hartwell,
A Deputation, consisting of all the principal inhabitants
of Nancy with the Magistrates, had waited on Monsieur,
at Vesoul, with the most earnest solicitation that he would
put himeclf at their head, ‘Phe greatest enthusiasm pre.
vailed iu favour of the Bourbons, and Nancy presented a
picture like that recently exhibited at Bourdeaux. The
White Cuckady was (riumphanily hoisted ; on all sides were
heard acclamations of dive de Roi! Vive Louis XVI!
Vivent les bourbons! No partizan of Napoleon dared
tu raise a voice im his favour. ‘Phe people of Nancy are
merely a specimen of the general feeling which pervades
the Bast of France. Asa proof of connection between
the Royalists in dillerent parts, we can state that these
demoustrations of popular fecling were in consequence of
a prior Correspondence with the south of France.
Horse Guards, March 4.—The Commander in Chief
commends to be notified to thearmy, that it has some time
since been declared to the French and American Governe
nents, that his Majesty’s Government will not recognise
or rauify any agreement for exchange of prisoners made aé
sea, between individuals of the respective nations,
Ihis Royal Highness directs this communication to be
made to thearay, in order (hat the ofhicers may be aware,
that the event of their being captured atsea, they are not,
on any account, to give their paroles, until they are land.
ed on [french or American territory, and that paroles
given at sea are null and void. Any ofiicer, who, after
this communication, may euter into any such agreement
with the enemy, will be guilty of a breach of discipline,
for which he will be held personally responsible.

Dispatch from Commodore Rodgers to the Secretary
of the Amertcan Navy.
~ “United States’ Frigate, President,Sandy Hook Bay,
Iebruary 26, 1514.
Sir—I have to acquaint you, that I arrived at my pre-
gent anchorage last evening, after a cruise of 73 days, and
pow have the honor to detail to your the particulars.
In pursuance of your directions, IT failed from Provi-
dence on the 5th Dec. and, although I expected to run the
gauntlet through the enemy’s squadron that was reported
toe cruising between Block Island and Gayhead, for the
purpose of intercepting the President, [ had the good luck
to avoid them. ‘The day after leaving Providence, I re-
captured the American schooner Commet, of and bound
to New York, with a cargo of cotton from Savannah,
which had been captured by the Rajnelies and Lotre, aad
was in their possession about forty-eight hours. In atew
hours after re-capturing the Commed,'a sail was dicover-.
ed to the eastward, which I had felt inclined to avoid, from
the circumstance of the weather being hazy, and knowing
that I was in the neighbourhood of the cnemy’s squadron,
from an advantage of wind, she was enabled, however, to
gain our lec beam at a distance of three or four miles, ow.
View original ing to which I was induced to shorten sail, with the inten-
tion of offering her battle in the morning, should nothing
else be in sight, and she not bea slip ol the line.
The wheater becoming more obscure at 2 o'clock, pre-
vented oursecing her until day-light, when she stood from
us to the N. EK. although the President was hove to, to
let her come up. From this date unul the 25th, we did
nut see a single sail, except the Recovery [a brig belong-
ing and bound to Penobsco, from St. Bartholomew, In
ballast] until after reaching Long. 25. Lat. 19. being car-
ried that far eastward by a severe 5. W. gale, accompanicd
by such heavy sea as to render heaving to impracticable
without infinite risk, when two large sails were discovered
standing to the northward, and to w hich 1 gave chase,
belicfing, as well from the situation in which they were
discovered, as the manifest disposition they afterwards
shewed to avoid a separation, that one was a frizate and
the other an Indiaman under hes convoy : iv this twas
mistaken, fur a nearer approach L could discover the head
most was a frigate with seven ports abalt her gangway , and
the other a ship of epual or little inferior furce: on dis.

(o separate them by stecring different cources, and occa.
sionly shewing a light; but was unable tu succeed, fur the
the headmost at one time was su near that she fired a shot
over us, whilst her consort was but a hundred yards astern
of her. Lnow directed our course to be altered, made sail
and continued the remainder of the night to shew them a
light occasionly, but to no eilect, as at day-light they
were discovered to be in a situation to unite there force.
After this I shaped a course to reach a position to wind-
ward of Barbados, on a parailel of longitude with Cayenne
and did not meet another vessel ill the SOth, whea faling
in with a Portuguese brig, and receiving infornarion that
she had been boarded 96 hours before by to two British
store ships, bound to the West Indies with 5350 tranps on
board, 1 crowded sail to the west ward in the hope «i
overtaking them; in this I was again diappotuted, aud,
after a pursuit of four days, hauled further south ward to
gain the latitude of Barbados: in that situation, aud ©
the 5th of Jan. captured the ship Jhandrer, of 7 guns and
16 men, from London bound to Jamica, party loaded
with plantation stores, and after taking from her such th
articles as were of most valuc, sunk her. Tn the sans
position on the7th, [fell in’ with the British mercnant
ship Prince George, in the character of a cartel with pie
suners, which, with four other British vessels, diad been
captured by two French 44 gun frigates, the Medusa aud

nauveres, that after daik they would chase, I stood to
the eastward under short sail; believing that in the morn.

Extract of a Letter from Ilalifar, Nova Scotia, dated
January 22, 18i4.
““Many people in England are, no doubt, informed that
several 74 guu ships aud frigates are building in the U.
States; but the extraordinary size of these vesscls (in res
ference to their nominal rates) may not be so generally
known, The opportunity 1 had last summer of viewlog
the Nammouth 74, and a frigate building at Philadelphia,
chables me to give the lenght of the (read of their keel, by
which their full dimensions may be tulcrably estimated ;
the keel of the 74 is 173 fect 5 inehes; this 74 proceeds
very slowly, for want of materials, having in Oct. last€
vuly a few of her floor Goibers laid down: it wasexpect-
cd she would mot be ready for launching until May or
June 1815; and even that would depend on the vigilance
vf our ships inthe Delaware ; in cutling off thetr sup-y-tieg
of tinber; her lower deck guns are to be Jong 32 poun-
ders, and she is to mount at least 96 guns. ‘The keel of
the frigate 160 feet 6) inches, 16 ports on a side on her
main deck, will carry lon, 32-pounder on her main deck,
aid is to mount 62 guns; she was nearly planked up in
October last, and it was expected would be launched in
Apiior May ucat. Phe ships building at Baltimore, aud
(othe Mastward, are all, | understand, of nearly the same
dimcusions as tne two at Philadelphia, but much further
advaaccd, especially the 47’s one or two of which, is exe
pecied, will be at sea carly in the ensuing summer. The

which is cast in every Englishman’s teeth the moment the
acrecable subject of our late defeat is brought upon the
Capiss it is, that the late Captain of our late Macedonian,
when dising on board Captain Decatur’s ship, before the
war, seriously declared, that 18-pounders are as good as
Ys, and that he preferred his ship to the United States.
Whether or not he had soine reason to change his opinion,
may be seen by reading his official letter ; written after the
neat interview he had with his friend.”

Proposed to ler) most positively and unequivocally au.
swers—That there is not, and there never has been, among
(ne Catholics, or in the doctrines of the church of Rome,
any law or principle which makes it lawful for Catholics
to brcak their faith wit heretics, or others of a ditlercut
persuasion from themselves in mallers of religion, either in
public or private concerns.
The faculty declares the doctrine of the Catholics to be,
that the divine and natural law, which makes it a duty to
keep faith and promises, is the same; and is neither shaken
nor duninished, if those, with whom the engagement is
inade, hold erroneous opinions in matters of religion, &e.
To the first question it is answered—That neither pope,
cardinals, nor even a general council, have any civil au.
Chority, power, Jurisdiction, or pre-eminence, directly or
indirectly, inthe kingdom of Great Britain; or over any
ther Kingdom or proyvinced in which they pussess no (ein.

cardinals, nor even a general Council, can absolve the
Subjects of Great Britain from their oaths of allegiance,
or dispense with their obligations.
To the third itis answered—That the oWligation of keep.
ing faith is grounded on the law of natay 's which bind all
