Dec. 30, 183 1. Gentlemen Your note dated on yesterday was handed me a few minutes since. I am aware th;it for Mime time pist, my name h is been oee ion ally m-Miiioned, in toy own Sl;itc, and eUevvlu're, for the ofliee yon mention. I h id never nppued it tvouM be so fir acespi.ihle to the public as to render an uppli calion to me necessary to ascertain my wishes or determination. Not having taken any pains to ascertain public opinion upon that subject, I am perhaps less acquain ted with the sentiments ol even our own State than any of my colleagues. As to my own wish es and determinations, lean have no difficulty in giving you an an swer. I am not conscious that at anv moment ot my life I have ever ished to be President ot the j United States; I have never kuow-i jngly uttered a sentence, or done ; an act, lor the purpose of induc ing any person to think of me for that distinguished station. When the duties and responsibilities of the Oi'iice are considered, in mv opinion, it is an object more to U ..r;.l,wl (1,..

My most anxious wish is, that in any use you may think proper to make of my name, you may lose sight of every cjnsideralion except the public interest. 1 have not h id any agency in causing it to be used and d . not feel that I woull he justified in directing th" use of it to he discontinued.

T 1 1 e Republican members of the Le gislature of AVtu York have made arrangements for appointing Del egates to the Convention, to meet at laltimore on the 20th of May. The State Committee of Ver mont have also invited the Demo- cratic Republicans of that Slate, to hold meetings in their respec tive towns, to appoint one or more Delegates to attend a State Con- J vention at Montpelier, on the 4th of March, for the purpose of appointing seven Delegates to attend the National Convention. The great Republican Party of Pennsylvania will meet in Con vention at Uarrisburg, on the dth of March, for this and for other purposes. U ich rn u n d En q . Our relations with France The Ship Sully arrived at New ! lorli on Saturday, bringing Paris dates to the 17th January. The intelligence bv this arrival, furn ihes gooil grounds for the belief' that the difficulties between our Government and Franc- will be amicabiy adjusted. Tin; indem nity bill was brought forward in the Chamber of Deputies on the f:h ultimo, and il would appear from the Sp--rh of the Minister i I V I 1 ' i f i oi j mance in.u ine l rencu .Min isters are dejermined, notwith- landing the objectionable light in tbev iev the Messafe of t i (,e-Jackson, to tm in ijood faith, and to endeavor to fulfil the slip- j uiatious ol the lieatv. c trust that this expectation may be rea lized. WbiLt we have admitted the patriotic tone of tin; Presi dent's Message, we have alvavsi regarded the implied threat which il held forth, as not only unwise, but as calculated to retard, if not entirely prevent the settlement of the controversy between the two countries. The Kxecutive should have carefully abstained from placing France in ihe altitude of ful filing its engagements to us un der a threat of war or reprisals. We are however pleased to find that the French Cabinet, regard ing the message "as an act of the Government as yet incomplete," have resolved, without waiting for the aclion of the American Congress, lo urge upon the Chambers the necessity of main taining the "good faith'' of ihe nation by the immediate passage of ihe bill. If the Ministry are sincere (as we believe) in their efforts to fulfil the stipulations of the treaty, there is every ground to believe that they wiil succeed. But should they not be acting in good faith, or should their efforts fail of success, there w ill be but one opinion among the people of this country as to the stand to be taken by our Government. How ever much we may regret and condemn the hasty and ill judged action of our Chief Magistrate, wj,;r, m;iv have been seized unnn non-fulfilment of the treaty, no one will be found to recognise the validity of that excuse, or to with hold his aid from any judicious plan for obtaining redress for the wrongs inflicted upon our citizens. We have, however, no reason to doubt ihe sincerity of the French Ministry, and, from the fact that Mr. Livingston had not applied for his passports but had deter mined to await the action ofth Chambers in reference to the in demnity bill, there is every proba bility that our relations with on ancient ally will be restored anti iced on their former amicable footing. eL inL Shameful. The New York Commercial Advertiser say.s.- VVe cannot forbear mentioning, though with very deep mortifica tion, an incident of Saturday, which reflects great discredit up on a portion of our population the constituency, par excellence, of our present representatives in the National and State Legisla tures, h was this: On the laud ing of the French officers from ihe ship, at Castle Garden, be tween one and two o'clock, a mob assembled at the gate of the bridge, to oppose their coming shore. It was a base ragamuffin crew of boys and universal suffrage voters, who threw themselves in the way of the officers, and assail ed them with insulting exclama tionscrying "Down with the Frenchmen!" "Don't let them come! "Drown them!" &c. &c. The officers were on their way to the of the Consul-General, who resides at the Battery, and tiV mob accompanied them thith er, to the number of seven or eight hundred. M. Le Forest was at the office of the Consulate at the time, tu which place a par' of the mob continued their course Their rude and ruffian cries were continued at his house lor a time, and M. Le Forest represented llu cise to the Mayor, whose depot I menf on the occasion was such as might have been expected from that officer, who is alike a gentle man in his feelings and conduct. The feelings of these Mranis gentlemen themselves, ami at tached to a most honorable service were of course deeply injured at snob a reception from the old friends and ..Hies of their own country. They knew not what to make of Mich a popular out breaking in a time of peace and in a country boasting so much of its intelligence and orderly character. But the most Mili-ltieiory repre sentations have been made to them, and the Mibj'-ct is now, as we h ive reason to believe, uuder slood in its true linht. liattle bttwern the Indians and Poles. It appears from a letter received this week from a respect able Polish emigrant, at New Orleans, that about 20 of bis countrymen, not meeting with any means of support, and lotallv w ithout funds, departed from New Orleans for Mexico, by land, through the Texas cotmtrv. Having no guide, nor knowledge of the w ilderness route, they be came utterly lost, when they were fiercely attacked by a numerous body of Indians. The Poles had but few guns, but maintained a long and bloody conflict, until they had killed a large number of their enemy. They, however, suffered severely, having bail two of their number slain, and the re mainder wounded. Only one Pole w as able to reach New Or leans. Louisville Journal. Xeiv York Market, Feb. 21. Colon - The sales of ihe week extend to about 2500 bales, ot which 1250 were Upland, at 15-5 to 500 New Orleans yi 10 to 181; 450 Florida al HI to 17j; and 200 Mobile at 17 to IS ets. The last advices from Knland ami France have had the effect to unsettle our market, and generally holders are unwilling to name lower prices and purchasers lo come forward with offers at ihe present prices. Since Ihe ac counts were received very liitle has been done, part of which was at a reduction from previous rates. Naval Stores Tuipenline is dull and can ire obtained at less than our quotations.

Halt. Pat. Frost-bitten Vegetables. We .bserve from the Favetleville na- ers, lhat a physician of that tow n recommends the citizens to be cautious in making use of frost bitten vegetables, particularly Cabbage, which was nearly ail frozen during the late extremely cold weather, and is now, in its decayed state, very detrimental to health. It is recommended to gather all the old cabbage, and bury it. Raleigh Standard. OCr'The ship Hark Away, which lately arrived at Peters burg, brought from Liverpool the celebrated English horse Tranby and Wheale, inported by Messrs. Avery Co. of Greensville coun ty, Va. Ral. Star. The Chesvpeuke Bay. One of the Pilots, who had come up from below says the Baltimore Chronicle states, that on Mon day last, the whole Bay was frozen over to Capes Henry and Charles, and that the Pilot boats had great difficulty in getting in from sea ice two and a half inches thick. This may be regarded as a most remarkable circumstance,' not happening perhaps once in fifty years. The distance from Balti more to the Capes, is estimated at about 200 miles. Distressing Casualty. D r. Samuel S. Pool, a physician of our town, while skating on Little River on Tuesday last, was sud denly precipitated into a hole through the ice and before assis tance could be rendered him, sunk to rise no more. His body was recovered the next day and inter red. Dr. P. was quite a younj man, amiable and affable in his manners, and for several years a member of ihe Methodist Church. His sudden and untimely death is a severe blow to his fond pa rents and other relatives. Herald of the Times. Foreign. A vessel arrived at Philadelphia, bringing Liverpool ('ales of Jan'y 20. The Paris dates are of the 1 7th. It was considered ur.n rtain w hether the Ministry would carry the Indem nity Bill through the Chambers. The account of" Mr. Livingston's d termination to retain his place at Paris, until his passports were forced upon him, is confirmed. The Cotton Market at Liver pool, Jan. 20, was more firm, and spinners were expected soon to resume operations, which had been suspended by the elections. The ireneral result of the elec tions in England is not yet ascer tained. IHKI). On Sunday last, aged about 5 years, Ca.'rin, son of Mr. John Sherrod. of Martin countv.
