It has been credibly asserted for a year past, that there wast shut up in the Hotel at Berlin, a young Polish Coun tess, immensely rich, and wanting a hus band, but who had : the draw-back, (or rather the MAltE-daaw back) of a skeleton head on an otherwise healthy body. The story has been somewb at doubted, but a celebratee surgeon, Drieffenbach, has late ly published an account, which we con dense as follows : "On a certain evening three persons lloil nn (his ftolphrnfpri nrftitinnAr An called on this celebrated practitioner. An Italian and AiJolish gentleman - came for ward, leaving; a veiled lady in the ' back ground. On the retirement of the other two, the incognito timidly looked around, advanced hesitatingly, and finally, uncov ered her head. A man whose profession was to look fon horrible sceties was not likely to be. easily moved, but-from what now met his sight, he started back with a scream of horror. A grimacing skeleton. with the bones of the head scarcely cover? ed with a reddish epidermis, stood before him. The tongue lay utterly visible, and all tHe passages of the nose and throat without a covering.

But these fared even worse than her army. To provide against simi lar disasters in another war, she set about, when peace came to open a way for a portion of those fleets on the ocean which constitute her glory and her might. She has no idea of contending with us there another time by starting even! with us to the forest for ships ; she'll send them right from the sea, full armed and equipped for battle. , : " Should she see fit to contend; with us a gain in that quarter, the first thing that we should know of her intentions would be from the lighted matches of her ships. wim pons aown ana tompions out. in this manner she made known her inten tions upon Copenhagen, at Nayarino, and still later in Syria. This is the way in i which she has pro claimed hostilities time and again with al most every nation under the sun ; nay, but lour years ago this is what she was pre pared and actually stood ready to do in this very quarter. f (! Her official documents show that when f Vl A sVllllirfrin trAfltir Unmmnnnail VtAwo in .Washington, there happened td be about r Halifax and JamaicaTan English fleet of glish fleet of sixty sail, and nearly qne-third of the whole standing army of Great Britain, notwith standing she was then engaged in twerac tive wars the other side of theworld. In such good earnest did she prepare to at tack us on the Lakes, that, independent of her local militia, she had assembled and ready in Canada an army of choice veter ans 25,000 strong. 1 j That Government jemderstands perfect- 1 n ..1 j ; - A iy wen wnere me yeaK poimsoi ine um- toA fitotoc 9M . i.i,. unn,a t,o vvu va-v v-k ua w oui m.lmj v j a uui uui ihusl vulnerable parts are on the Lakes and the Gulf at least she has signified as much bv very unequivocal sisrns. and eiven us. by the disposition of her for.ces, plainly to understand how and where she! would first have at us. She would notlcommence the negotiation until she got j ready her "dogs of war." Then, but not , till then, did she send over her Minister with his ultimatum. I 1 . ,Had that negotiation failed and war been the consequence, it is folly to suppose that the commencement of hostilities would have been announced on her part, except i from the mouth of her cannon;; for when she goes in for a fight, it is but a word and a blow with her, and the blow comes first Seeing, therefore,! that, without being aware of it, you have been so closely threatened on the Lake, it ; becomes you seriously to consider what you would do, and what .are your means of def ence, in case of an actual attack in that quarter. . The last report oj the Board of Public Works in Canada informs us that, though the Welland Canal is not finished, nor will be. for a. year to come, yet it can pass ev ery vessel except three or four now on the Lakes, and as soon las the winter breaks up, three steamers of 1,905 tons will com mence their regular trips through it. ! Now. I am told that your i merchants have in their Lake marine 25 large stea mers of 500 tons and upwards, 50 brigs and schooners, besides innumerable small craft," capable of bearing an i armament and defending the Lake. Butddyou not know that there is (not,; from one end of the Late to the nance yherewith to arm them?

" u -: , j -J. If Great Britain should choose to, send 1 flPt thmiitrh thesa canals to the Lakes.' . . . . vtnnninff tliem with m: canals jwere. constructed for military pur poses, and it would be at variance with the character of that Government to sup pose it; capable of military blunder of con structing such works, and neglecting to provide any means for holding or defend ing them. Before you knew she was com ing, her ships would be upon you. The object and purposes of war are not the fighting of. pitched battles in the "Bay ot Fundy," or elsewhere. Fighting is the mere 1 incident, the contingent results of war. When the British burnt Washing ton, they did not come here to fight. They cajne, as they would go upon the Lakes, to ravage and to waste, to distress, to crip ple, and to kill. These are the great pur poses of war the military, end and aim of these ship canals that lead into the heart of the Country. Therefore, to fail to pro vide for your defences, and talk about pro tecting your Lake towns and commerce after the cruisers of the enemy have got in among you, by stopping up these ca nals, taking! Montreal, &c, would be like shutting- the gates after the wolf had en tered the fold and been glutted. Montreal is the key to the Canadas; and Great Britain understands its impor tance too well to let it fall by a mere sum mons from the M the militia." Whether, therefore, we should be able to blow up the canals, and invest Montreal even after the ships Were in possession of the Lakes, would, I humbly submit, depend somewhat on the fortunes of war. But suppose that, by some strange in fatuation, Great Britain 'should suffer us to take her canals and her cities without a-struggle, how would that repair the da- mages by her fleet upon the Lakes ? I have no intention to waste ink and paper as to modes of attack. My object is not to show how we may act after we get into trouble, but rather how we may best act to keep out of trouble. , Fully impressed with the almost total neglect by the General Government of providing means of national defence on the Lakes, I shall endeavor to show in my next how much has been expended for the general defence in other quarters. .What portion of the same you have contributed, and what benefit you have received in re turn. I I ; ' Yours, till the canal be dug, HARRY BLUFF, U. S. N. The British Government seems disposed to relinquish its efforts to play out the ill acted farce in which it performed so prom inent a part as universal philanthropist. It has ceased to contend for the privilege of searching all trading vessels at sea- a task which however troublesome, it was willing to undertake for the sake of sup pressing the-slavetrade. Along with this abandonment, the policy of discriminating against the products of slave labor is vir tually given up a policy which never had the semblance of consistency, because no such discrimination was ever made a gainst cotton. In accordancef with the new direction now given to her commercial system, Eng land has authorized her Minister at the Court of Brazil to enter into treaty with that country without insisting upon cer tain points which were formerly involved m the stipulations proposed. 1 he conven tion which existed until lately between Great Britian and Brazil having expired by limitation of time, the latter Power was unwilling to renew it upon terms so la vourable to England as were contained in the defunct treaty. In relation to this subject the Liverpool 1 imes says : By, the accounts from Rio, it appears that our own Government, after riding the high horse so magnanimously with regard to Brazil, has authorized the English Min ister !to announce to the Brazilian Gov ernment that hej has received full powers to negotiate another commercial treaty in the place of that which was so unwisely allowed to expire. The Brazilian Gov ernment has met this announcement by the appointment of commissioners empow ered to treat with him ; and as the British Government has itself solicited the renew al of negotiations, we may venture to hope! that it is prepared to accede to rea sonable terms. The anti-English papers have already set up a loud outcry against the renewal of the negotiations, but the Government papers answer them firmly, declaring that the Brazilian ministers are willing to negotiate, but that they are de termined not to agree to any terms which will compromise either the dignity or the interests of the country. The meaning of this probably is, that they are determined not to allow any mierierence in meir in ternal affairs under the pretext of suppress inff slavery, and to insist on something like kn eaualitv of- duties - on Brazilian and British'produce. They are certainly right in both respects. Bait. Amer.

THE STATE? OF FRANK LAND. It may not be generally known that, in the year 1784, North Carolina passed a law ceding the country, which now forms the state ot lennessee, to the United States, provided Congress should accept the cession within two years ; the juris diction to be retained by North Carolina till Congress should take possession. Up on this, the citizens called a Convention, oy which the laws ot North Carolina, as far as applicable, were declared to be in force in the territory, and the aid of Con gress was invoked, for the formation of a new State. Meanwhile, they ordained that the territory should be governed bv a Convention, and that this Convention, should send a.delegate to Congress. Congress did not accept this cessions and North Carolina repealed her lay.-4 Meantime, however, parties, were formeq in Tennessee; and while, on one side, ij was wished to return under the jurisdicl tion of North .Carolina, on the other sidS, it was resolved to adhere to the separa tion. A new Convention was called, and the territory was declared to be an inde pendent state, under the name of Frank land. The Convention announced to N. Carolina the independence of the new state, and sent a delegate to Congress ; but it does not appear that any notice was taken, by that body, of the proceedings. In 1786, the state of Frankland had two conflicting Courts in its limits. The one acted under the authority of theirown state, and the other under that of North Carolina. Each Court claimed, that its decisions were paramount ; and in fact, the only one, that had a right to act in the ease. A more fruitful source of collision and quarrel cannot be imagined, than such a state. The Sheriff . of Frankland, with his posse, in some instances, went into the Court, seized the papers, and turned the officers out of doors. The JSTorth Carolina party, as soon as it had power, retaliated in the same way. Colonel John Sevier was elected the first Governor of the state of Frankland. The Governor, soon after his induction into office, met the principal man on the North Carolina side of the question. From the windy and inefficient war of words, it soon proceeded to the more decisive war of blows. The argu ment was soon settled inthe primitive way by the dint of fist. But these leaders of state were separated, before victory declared on either side. Their humbler retainers, as they felt in duty bound, imi tated the example of their superiors, and lost an eye, or a piece of flesh of less im portance from some other part of the bo dy, without being either cooled, or con vinced. It was obvious, that in such a crisis things must soon come to a more se rious issue, than a fist-fight, or gouging an eye. The county of Washington elected mem bers to represent them in the Assembly of North Carolina. Col. Tipton, who had fought the Governor of Frankland, was one of these representatives. A paper containing the names of those, who were willing to accept the terms of North Car olina, and secede from the authority of Frankland, was sent by these members to the Assembly, laxes, were imposed by the authority of-both Legislatures, and, as may be easily foreseen, the people paid neither, .with much speciousness, assign ing as a reason, that they did not know to which authority they ought to yield their money. This year the Cherokees renewed their attack upon Tennessee. William Cocke, Esq., 3vas delegated to Congress. He made, before that body, an eloquent speech, placing in a strong light the helplessness and misery of their condition, engaged in civil war on the one hand, and assailed by the merciless savages on the other. This time he was heard, and his representa- tions acted upon. A general amnesty was i i it ri i passea, in resrara ro an wno expressed a readiness to yield themselves tothe au thority of North Carolina. It was enacted, too, that the officers, who had held under the state of Frank land, should be displaced, and their places tilled by persons appointed from North Carolina. Many, who held under the new state,: had been originally appointed by North Carolina, had been retained in their offices by Frankland. They were eonsi dered by Congress in the light of persons, who. admitted the authority ol the new state. The pacific, and yet decisive mea sures of-Congress seemed at once to re store things to their former position, be fore the formation of the state of Frank- land. But under the external appearan ces of tranquility remained the smothered fife. There still remained a considerable number, staunch for the cause of the fal len state, and disposed, upon the first fa vorable appearances, to rear it up again. Governor Sevier offered the , services of these men to Georgia, in the prospect of an approaching war of that state with the Creeks. . .The Legislature of that state having deliberated upon the proposition, returned a very polite answer, expressing gratitude for the kindness of the offer, and promising a return of their services in any wav: which shonld not be incompatible with tfift i ritWrests of Georgia. They sent a state of their case to Dr. Franklin, soli citing advice He wrote theni in reply. that he thought they had better accede to the propositions ot iNortn varoiuia """ w; state.
