DUNCAN MAC FAR LAND. N. U. Please to communicate the contents to your neighbour. :::g;o::t: From the Njtional Intelligencer.- Our readers must have noticed, for somr time pat. atrong animadversions in several of the public prints, on the conduct of m--ncnl Armstrong, our minister in France, in the case o( the New-Jersey hich has likewise produced a remonstrance to the Pie sident from (lie Insurance Compsnv of New. York. Of the communication cf this remon stranrp, Dr. Mitchill, f.f the stnr.te of the United States, was some tinir since made the organ. An atuwrr was made through him at an efrly day, by the President, ex pressive of confidence in the intepiity of our tninintcr, and intiirrt'.np ilmt as on as In formation had tern received on the opinion ascribed to him, a letter disapproving it had been written to him. the reply to which, it was expected, would comprise the nertmry explanations. The President added, that Jjaving no doubt of the ntht of insurers to stand in the place cf the insured, that right would be asserted and maintained on every proper occasion An explanatory letter having been since rrceired from general Armstrong, and com municated to Dr. Mitchill, is now published, with the view of elucidating subject which baa excited so much sensation among mcr cautile men. t Ettrafi ef a Utter fron General rmttrog, Hinhter fiWvtrntUrj of iht United St at tt, ! at rStii,SU iht Setretarj ef State, dated rarii, Krtxmler 26, 1 60S. ut I had the honor, within the last wee,of; receiving jrir letter of the a Sib of August, etprtisirg the solicitude cf the parties Inter estrd in'the Mp New-Jersey and cargo,! u least their claim should be rejected on the idea, thet the right cfth Insured did not: psts to the Insurers j" and communicating i also the opinion of the Trtiident that M A merkan underwrltert who had paid the loss 1othe origin si owners, cit'nens of the United -State, wrt entitled t the Ixmfiii if the Irtiiy of I80J.H : t ' . In my nexldiipstche I shall furnish you wilK lidt II mrnl t frum tahirh Imi aitl il,.i I " ins. the.diflT.culties lo this case, have in ro stage cf it. arisen from (ha causes to whirh ihw ItaveLcen ascribed j thai its admistion by the imcncin uoara vss long lutpeoded under coll Merttr objeetioni, that no evidence had Itea produced cf tbe iosolrcncy of j -v. i,.t captors," that its retection. bv the -council general 'f riuldaUon, proceeded iVomithe pcMeCihat M the ship and caro were. paV tiillyv or 'altogtthr British property ;, and from cer.trtin jthe causeV'-aixi that when tots belief tonterning the national character cf the property was dene away by the pro duttiotl of certain policies of insurance, which, mid been effected in different parts of the United States (but whkh till, then had ben carefully kept out of sight) the claim so far from being -opposed on the principle that ' the rights of the insured did not vest in the insurers," or indeed on any other principle, wasori my suggestion sent back to the coun ' cil, relieved from the first and apparently the principal objection, and left the subject only to the " other causes" .mentioned iu the re jecting arrete of the 28th of Friinaire. These " other causes" are fully exhibited in the report of the Directory of the 4th di vision, dated en the 15th Germinal, and may be digested into the following heads: . ; ' - 1st. That the judgment. of the 17th Prairial, year- 6, pronouncing the confiscation of the New-Jersey and car&o, is still subsist iflg inasmuch, as it has not been annulled by the decree of the council of prizes, which directs only,-the-restitution of the sum de posited by the owner with general lledou- , vill. ' : ; ; v-v ' . ,, ; . . , M 2d. That the claimants having neglected to prosecute their appeal within six years af ter the capture, were precluded, by the laws of France, from a right of appealing. 3d. That the New-Jersey not having role d'equipage, as provided by the treaty of 1T78, was excluded from the provisions of the 4th article of the treaty of 1800. 4th. That the captain and agent of the privateer not having been heard in their de fence, nor even summoned to appear before the tribunal, the decree of the council of prizes was illegal. -J 5th. That no evidence' having been pro duced of the abandonment of the ship and cargo to. the underwriters, and the agents having even deniedthc right of their govern ment to question them with regatd to an a bdrtdonment of the property, snd having be sides acknowledged that the original owners, or -a part of them, hnd acquired the New Jersey by a new title; by idlingto the un derwriters, uj" droit cr.nenatle Je nprue dans Li depot" it'may be f tiily inferred, that thejossneverwaspaidby the insurers and that the receipts (whi.:h by ihe' M ay do not corres pind in number with the policies) are merely fictitious, and " Clh. That were it in proof that theowntrs had abandoned, and that the underwriters hud paid, still the cl.iim of the latter could not be admitted inasmuch as it could not now be liquidated under the rules prescribed by .the treaty the Anicritan commission hav ing no longer an existence. You wilt readily perceive that in all this there is not a tinlo ayllabie ointed at the rights of iniurers, " who have p'dd the loss or the original owners." It only remains for me, therefore to hew, that in no after act if her of the council or of Mr. Muibois and inyitir, was the broad principle which has iv'tii ko much alarm to our underwriting ci-1 tir;ns, or even the qualified one to be found in the Picsider.t's opinion, adapted or applied to the rate of the New-Ji'isey -The report of winch 1 have tdrcady given you the sub. stance, not having been agreed to by all the jr.cmb'TS of the council, and the liquidator general not cheosir.g to decide the differ ences, transmitted the case a second time to theUcaiury. with a wlh that Mr. Marbois and myarlf might determinate it t complied with this wish we did determinate it, and admitted it for its full proportion cf the marginal fund. It Is true that Mr. Mar bois and I differed somewhat concerning this rircponion. He would have given 333,000 rancs, wjieress I thought that 300,000 were quite as many as fell to its share ; and that fou think as I did, I have no doubt, when inform you, that there are claims amount, ing to more than three millions, as sound in point of principle, less objectionable in point of form, and better rtcnmmended by the pe cuniary circumstances feflhe claimants! lor whkh I have not yet got a single sous." i M:tt;::tt:ttf CHARLESTON, Macih 14.
