tion respecting Mr. A lams' preiendcu j nalor from Vermont; and, lastly, conversion under any circumstances,! f i - n :i)C! tUnn o Cnotn whilst I was extremely desirous that ht should do so himself., The points ot difference appear to he these: Gov. Gile states that the disclosures of the "trea sonable views, " entertained by the lead ers of the federal party, wers made by INIr. Adams personally to himself and Mr. Jefferson in the winter of 1S07-S; Mr. Adams ass'orls that they were made by letter to Gov. Giles and several oth ers, during ihe subsequent session of Congress, and probably by them com municated to Mr. Jefferson. . The sub stance is the same, and we regard that instead of the shadow. We have it now affirmed, in "black and white," by John Quincy Adams, President of the United States, that in 180S the object of the leaders of the federal party in Massa chusetts "was and had been for seve ral years, a dissolution of the Union, and the establishinent of a separate Confederation:" In 1514, when we were at war with Great Britain, in a let ter to Leavitt. Harris, Mr. Adams de clared that "half the nation iverc sold by their prejudice and their ignorance to the enemy:" thus not only charging the leaders, but the whol body of the federalists with "treasonable views," at two distinct periods. We wait with anxiety to see the result of thii new dis closure. Th3 following extract embra ces the substance of Mr. Adams' crplct 7 a I ion: "The interview to which Mr. Jefferson alludes, took place on the 15th nf March, 1308, penclinrr the embargo; but, at the session of Congress before the substitution tor it of the non-intercourse ?sct. The information, given by Mr. Adams to Mr. Jefferson, had on ly an indirect reference even to the embargo, and none to any en deavors for obtaining its repeal. It was the substance of a letter from the Governor of Nova Sco tia, to a person in the state of Massachusetts, written in the sum mer of 1307, and before the ex istence of the embargo; which let ter Mr. Adams had seen. It had been shown to him without any injunction of secrecy, and he be trayed no confidence in communi cating its purport to Mr. Jeffer son. Its object was to counte nance and accredit a calumny then extensively prevailing among the enemies of Mr. Jefferson and the opponents of his Administra tion, that he and his measures were subservient to France; and it alleged that the British Govern ment were informed of a plan, de termined upon by France, to ef fect the conquest of the British provinces on this Continent, and a revolution in the government of the United States, as means to which they were first to produce war between the United States and England. From the fact that the Governor of Nova Scotia had written such a letter to an indi . vidual in Massachusetts, connect ! od with other facts, and with the movements of the party then pre dominant in that State, Mr. Ad orns and Mr. Jefferson drew their inferences, which subsequent e- vents doiibtI,3sg confirmed: but j winch inferences neither Mr. Jef- j lorso nor Mr- Adams communi cated to each othor. Thia m I lh.c. ?ony confidential interview I which, during the administration Wr. Jefferson, took place be tween him and Mr. Adams. It M ifr'?ce fir3t at ,l,e rcl''est of "itson uary Nicholns, then a member of the House of Repre sentatives of the United States: J Virginia which request is the only intervention of Mr. Giles, ever known to Mr. Adams, be tween him and Mr. Jefferson. It is therefore not surprising, that no such intervention occurred to the recollection of Mr. Jefferson, in December, 1825. "This interview was in March, 1808. In May, of the same year, Mr. Adams resigned his scat in the Senate of the U. S. "At the next session of Con gress, which commenced in Nov. 1808, Mr. Adams was a private ci tizen, residing at Boston. The embargo was still in force; opera ting with extreme pressure upon the interests of the people, and was wielded as a most effective instrument, by the party prevail ing in the State, against the ad ministration of Mr. Jefferson. The people were constantly insti gated to forcible resistance against it; and juries after juries acquit ted the violators of it, upon the ground that it was unconstitution al, assumed in the face of a sol emn decision of the District Court of the United States. A separa tion of the Union was openly sti mulated in the public prints, and a Convention of Delegates of the! IVcw-England States to meet at: New-Haven, was intended and; proposed. "Air. Giles, and several other: members of Congress, during this session, wrote to Mr. Adams con-: fidentiai letters, informing him of the various measures proposed as reinforcements or substitutes for the embargo, and soliciting his opinions upon the subject, lie answered those letters with frank ness, and in confidence, lie ear nestly recommended the substitu tion of the non-intercourse for the embargo; and in mvinjj his rea sons tor this preference, was ne cessarily led to enlarge upon the views and purposes of certain leaders of the party which had the management of the Stale Le gislature in their hands. He ur ged that a continuance of the em bargo much longer would certain-' ly be met by forcible resistance,! supported by the Legislature, and probably by the Judiciary ot ihe State. That to quell that resist ance, if force should be resorted to by the Government it would produce a civil war; and that in that event, lie had no doubt the leaders of the party would secure the co-operation with them of Great Britain. That their object icas, and had been for several years, a dissolution of the Union, and the establishment of a sepa rate Confederation, he knew from unequivocal evidence, although not proveable in a Court of Law; and that, in the case of a civil war, the aid of Great Britain to effect that purpose would be as surely resorted to, as it would be indispensably necessary to the design." secret springs, which set m mo-; Robert Spier appeared at this tion Mr. Clay's original hostility; term pursuant to recognisance, to Mr. Adams, and be better able and upon motion of counsel, no to appreciate his present conduct matter appearing to justify his de towards that gentleman. ; tentionj was discharged.

It is our painful duty to record another sud den death occasioned by intempe rance. Daniel Munroe, of this county, was found dead in the su burbs of this town on Sunday morning last, and the verdict of the jury ot inquest who sat over him was, that he "came to his death by intemperance." Mr. Monroe was a hard work ing, honest citizen, and not very much addicted to drinking to ex cess, lie had been in town on Saturday, and had become much intoxicated before he left the house of a friend, at about 11 o'clock at night, to go home. It is suppo sed he fell from his horse and suf focated, as his face was very black when he was found. Jour. Secrets. Jonathan Russel has communicated for publication, to the editors of the United States' Tvdegraph, copies of a correspon dence between himself and Mr. Clay, on the matters growing out xtofM- ! i ' ot lhQ Treaty at Ghent.

For some time past considera ble excitement and some disorder has existed in the neighborhood of Salisbury, not among the ca vaillc, but among the honorables of that place, which was brought to a close at the Superior Court; indictments having been prefer red against several of them for riots and libels and for challenges. Nathaniel T. Green was lined $200, William Long 8500, James 1. Long 8250, Pleasant Hender son 8200, Henry A. Martin 300, and Crawford 850; William Long was also sentenced to thir ty days imprisonment, but this part of his sentence was remitted, upon all the parties pledging their honor in open court to abstain in future from all farther proceed ings in the business. Newbern, Oct. 25.- The Supe rior Court for this county has been in session during this week His 11 onor James Martin presid ing. In an action alleging brea ches of the covenants in a deed, a very interesting and important question arose, how far the rivers and their tributaries in this part of the state, are to be considered 'navigable waters.' It seems, and his Honor so charged, that a creek issuing in Trent river about three miles above this place, varying from 100 to 50 yards in width, with an average depth of six feet, not affected by the regular tides, but ebbing and flowing by the same influences which affect the river, is a 'navigable water course,' and consequently cannot be made the subject nf private property. Whereupon the Supreme Court having the matters before them by 'habeas corpus' adjudged that he ought not to be put upon his trial again that it would be jeo pardizing his life twice for the same offence, which is forbidden by the Constitution; and by their fiat for that purpose ordered him to be bailed. Spec. Florida. Wc learn from St. Augustine, that the Indians on the Appalachicola, have decided to send a deputation over the Mis sissippi, preparatory to a removal there, and it is probable that the East Florida Indians will join them.
