They are of the common size, 'but heavy built. A man, who calls his name William Dean, is suspected to be the thief. Dean was missing the same time the horses were. He is about 5 feet 7 or 8 in ches high, broad across the forehead, but his face tapers towards the chin, with a very large mouth; rather stoop shouldered, unpleasant countenance, and down look ; boasts much of his manhood and is fond of mimicking the Dutch brogue, and of gambling, and says he is a car penter by trade. Had a blue cloth coatee with a black velvet collar, gray casinet pantaloons, and black hat with a low tapered crown and broad rim. Fifty dollars renard will be given for his apprehension and confinement in any jail, or his delivery to me in Concord, N. C. to gether with both or either of the horses.

The character of this valuable and highly useful Exposition of the Sacretl Writings, is well known to the pious generally of all de nominations : and it now certainly stands in no need of a publisher’s recommendation.

A volume will be published every three months. An allowance will be made of one copy for every live subscribers; and to those who ob tain but two subscribers, a reasonable allow ance will be made.

The slave-trade question, the claim for in demnity for deported slaves, the north eastern boundary of the United States, the navigation of the St. I.awrence, viz. thatthevery lastactyourParhaiuent tiad passed, on a subject connected with this trade (an act passed some time in the season of 1823) was officialiy com*- municated to our government by Mr- Addington, theBritish Charge d’Atiaire^ at Washington, expressly that our gov ernment might take its measures accof- dingly. The omission, therefore, under thesis circumstances, tocomniun*cate olficialij^ thoactsofJune and July, 1825, strength ened the conclusion drawn fiom various other premises, that these acts were not designed to break up the suspended negotiation between the two govenl- meiiis.

Mr. King arrived in England in June 1825, but unfortunately in a state of sevt're indisposition, owing to which, Sir, and your own illness and the dis persion of his Majesty’s Government throughout the island, he was not pre sented 0 you for three months. Meantime, and to this I ask your speqial attention, after Mr. King’s ar rival and before his {iresentation, vour laws ri^f June 27th and July 5th were passed, by which a total ehange was ef- I'ected in your Coloiiial system, and hy which privileges were offered to all tViendly pow’ers in their trade vvith t!ie Hiitish West India rolonies, w!)ich the liriti.^h Government had never thotight of eonccding, nor any friendly power of a'iking before. No instructions which Mr. Kingshouhi have carried out, on under a determination, soon revoked. It was now perceived that an impor tant change had been made in >'Our Col onial System of a seemingly liberal na ture, although of a character and to aa extent which we could not precisely as certain. In order to be able to meet this change, by proper measures on our part, circular letters were addressed by* Mr. Clay, the new Secretary of State, to merchants and intelligent citizens ia different parts of the country, in order to concentrate the sense of those con versant with the matter, on a courso proper to be pursued. The result of these inquiries, and o^ the deliberations upon them was, to make the experiment of the most liber al proposals in case Great Britain should really be found to have formed the inten tion to reciprocate them. On the open ing of the first Session of Congress, un der the new Administration, the Presi dent obsei’ved, that “ In the renewal of the diplomatic missions* on both Bides, between the two Governm nts, assui an' es have been given and received of tho continuance and increase of mutual confidenco and c^»rdiali*y, by which the adjustment of fna« ny points of dilference has already been effect ed, and which affords the surest pledge for tbci ultimate satisfactory adjustment of those whicli will reaain opc*n, or hereai'ter arise.” The subject of the Colonial trade watt brought forward in Congress during tho session, in the manner set forth in my preceding letters. No intimation, W'as given, 071 any aide of either House of Congress, that the negotiation was at aa end. On the contrary, the only reason given why the passage of a law repealing our discriminating duties should be post poned was, that the whole subject waa embraced in a negotiation pending^ and forthwith to be i-esumed. This fact was known to you for yol to refer your self to the debates. As late as March 22d, 182fi, Mr- Vaughan informed the American Gov^ eminent, that your Government “ waS preparing to proceed in the imporlunf: 7i€goliations betv'ecn Great Britain and the United States,”and in consideratioa of Mr. King’s state of health, you invit ed the United States “tojoin another negotiator in the commission with him.” — Had you at this tim ;, (nine months after the passag- of the acts of the 27th of.lune and r>th of July, regarded the i negotiation on the colonial question as definitely broken uf> and concluded, common candor should have led you to instruct Mr. Vanghan to say so.
