rTHE EMPEROU ALEXANDER. ; 1
From the Pftrt. Folio oi. March; 1812, we collect
the following information respecting the character
and reign of Alexander, Empei or of Russia. Eve
fy thing must be interesting tbat is calculated to
make us better acquainted with the man upon
whose fate depends in a great degree the happi
ness or misery of the civilized womJ.
Alexander the 1st, Emperor of all the Russias,

at Moscow on the loth September, isoi, Having
ascended the throne 'on the 1 2th of March of that
year. Since his accession he has .add;d to the
Russian Empire the provinces of Belestock, Fin
land and Georgia, containing together a population
-of one million six hundred thousand inhabitants.
He has by canals of an immense extent ?fftited
a communication between the ' Baltic and Black
And well their brave descendants learnt to "ptie
Tlie boon for which their fathers cross'd the main,
TUey taught Columbia's southern sons to rise,
Wht n slavery strove to bring his galling chain.

Where'er" Columbia's '.blood has swell'd the purple j 0f p,USsi& and the Black Sea, and the Baltic and
Caspian Seas. Under his administration a new
organization of the government has been made.
The ministry is now divided into the foil6wing
lit, oF Foreic-n Affairs j 2d, of War : 3d, "of
Marine; 4th, of the Interior ; 5 h, ot Justice ;
6, of Finance ;,7(h, ol Public Instruction ; 8 h,
ofO;nrral Police. "The minister of each of these
dcpaitmeh's renders an-annual account to the
council of state. . lr

is that relative to commerce, which fixes the ribts
and privileges as well as Uicdutis of merchants,

or transient traders. hat is inore ciiaracierisiic

Now when the thunder of tKe war again
Is heard to rattle o'er our native land,'
Say will those freemen rush to arms amain
And to their country stretch thrir aiding hind$
They would, did Liberty their aid lemarid,
Bt 'tis not Liberty, alas! that calls,
They cannot, wiH not, join that ruffian band
Idinions of him belore whom freedom tails,
An4, whose deluded name each virtue fair appals.
Hail ! to the Patriot Statesman, who proclaims
The voice of Massachusetts stern and high,
W ho tells us that ber bold and hardy s warns
In Freedom's cause are ready all to diey- 7
But that from French Alliance they .will fly.
That fell NapmeoDjtas their hate and scorn,
ifor do they h- ed the scowling of his eye,
Who on his chaiv of state now sits forlorn,
And feels his little heart with rage and madness tion from thir prerogauyts or dignity. Of the
