JJESPECTFULI.Y informs the public tliat
they hiive received and ofl’er for sale a few tio si{jns ol cinutioti ; she laid her
hes, (gentle- upon the mortar, and waited her late
j2 Persian Execution.—When we halted,
I found myseir inclosed in a dense ring of
spectators, in the midst of which stood
u great brass mortar, raised on a mound
of earth,- and beside it, btuck in the
ground, was a linstock with a lijjhied j
match. The nnssukchees ranged them-'
selves on each side of this horrible en
gine; and it was not wit!.out some diiVi-
cully that I succeeded in {jainin^j a posi
tion, which appeared tome to sccureme
from the dan^;er atienciin" the explosion,
and its consequences, when it should take
pJace. Having taken my station, I be
gan to look aroimd me, and saw the otii-
cers of justice still pouritig into tliC cir
cle, wluch was widened i^r their recep
tion by dint of blows. Ai’lcr them, or|
rather between two of them, came tiie
prisoner. She was enveloped fi\jui head
lo foot, in a blac!; robe, which also cov
ered her face. Her step was ilrm, and
her carriage stately. She fiequently
spoke a few words lo an eunuch who ac
companied her .; bu; tl'.e noise was so
great that I could hear nothing of their
discourse. As she approached, the spec
tators became more quiet; and when she
had readied the mortar, not a sound was
to be heard. Taking advantage of the
silence, she spoke aloud, with a distinct
ness and composure that astonished eve
ry one, and made her words intelligible
lo all. The officers, perceiving that her
wild address made some impression on
the multitude, here interrupted her.—
She made no attempt to proceed, but re
signed herself into their arms. They led
her in front of the mortar, and yet her
steps never falterrd; neither did she speak
or implore, as it is common for even men
to do in her situation; neither did she
curse as some do ; neither did she veep.
They told her to ktu^el down with iier
breast ag'iitist its muzzle, and she did so.
They put cords round her wrists, and
bound them to stakes, which had been
driven for the purpose; still she showed
gold and silver patent lever Watches, (gentle-! upon
men and ladies) a icw good plain Wateliis, I a coi\)posurc which a soldier might have

TotheKight Honorable Gcnr^c Canning, First
Lord of the Treasury, &c:
Srn : I have dcspatoliotl that part of
yoiir letter of January ‘*J7th, which re-
laleii to Mr. Gallatin’s imaginary co)ii-
plainf, that the act of Parliament of
July, 1825, was not communicated to
the American Government.
I now ooine to the next siicceedinp;
topic ill ytjur lettei, and earnestly as 1
endeavor to cxprt.-^s myself with tht^
iiioderatiow v, iiieli belonj^s to the subject,
I tind it alinu^l impossible to keep dowt»
the lani^iia;re ui jtisl indip;nation.
Uncter a very thin disj:;uise, which I
shall wholly strip oti’, you are guilty of
the impropriety of charging the Kxecti-
tivc of the United States with a direct
breach of truth.
The (jtiestion is not now whether this
atrocious charge is or is not borne out.
I insist that, unless you are willing to
sink the character of the statesman in
that of the smart political chanij)ion, you
liave wandered most widely from the
path of ollieial decorum.
After an elaborate and subtle enumer
ation of the causes why you ought not
to have communicated to the American
novernment the act of Parliament of
July, 18i25, you proceed as follows :
“The simplest course was to allow
the provisions of the act to find their
way to general knowledge through the
usual channels of commercial informa
“The undersigned has no reason to
apprehend that this course has proved
less clfcctual on the present than on for
mer occasions.”
The last of these sentences, mild as
is its phrasology, gives the lie direct to
an oflicial statement, which, in his let
ter of December 28, 1826, Mr. Galla
tin informed you he was instructed by
his Government to ntake.
That statement was, that the Ameri
can Government did not understand
the act of Parliament of July, 182r>, as

cept when professionally engaged. 'I'liey are j pat ted. It had scarcely been Utteied
in daily expectation of a fresii and genuine as- when the explosion took place, and the
sortnuMit of Medicine I'rom Philadelphia anil srnokc cover’d e\cry thing fro
spectators ; tlie smoke passed away ; no
explosion followed ; and Ute unfortunate
wretch raised her head to see wliut had
happenfd. A faint hope glimtucrevl in
my own heart tlutt perhaps this was a de
vice to sa%e her life, hui it was not per
mitted to Ii>c long. It had ;.oa.''f"tly be
gun to rise within iue, when i saw tiie
l)rimiiig rcneMtd and i!ic mutch raised
again. The cotidemneu wretch laid hei'
head once more on its hard p'illow, ■.inti
It had
w’ith prevarication. I wish it may al
ways be on such grounds.
Your first reason is, “ The conditions
of the act of 1825 have Ijcen accopted
and carrieil into ell’ect by some govern-
mrnts.” In other words, Mexico anil
Colombia, perhaps, have negotiated
treaties with England, admitting her to
trade witli them and her own colonies,
free Ironi iliacriminating duties, there-
forCy the Government of the IJnitetl
States (its protestation to the contrary
notwithstanding,) must have known that
England, by her act of July, 1825, in
tended to break the implied promise of
negotiating further with us on the Col
onial (jtieslion, and settle it by ex parte.
Of this first argument, to prqve that
Mr. Gallatin’s statement is false, 1 shall
only say, that it reminds me strongly
of that in Moliere, which is stimmed up
with the words et voila po'urquoi votrc
JiHe inuetfc.
Your next reason is both more spc-
cious and more !>old. You reiterate th(*.
oflensivc charge almost in terms. You
“ But the undersigned cannot hut bo still of
opinion, that the resolution proposed in thr.
House of Hepresentatives, at Washington, at
the beginning of the last session of Congress,,
for the express purpose of urging the Execu •
tive (iovernment of the U. States t(» come int'>
the terms of the act of 1825, the debates whicU
took ))lace upon that proposition, and the final
rejection of it by a majority of only two votei.,
show that it was not for W'ant of a snfRcient un •
ders'anding of the intent of the act of Parlia
ment, that the conditions of it were not acccpt*
cd by the United States.”
Here 1 beg leave to intimate to you,
sir, that you are unfortunate in this os
tentatious display of seemingly accurato
and minute local information, with re
gard to a foreign country. I pcrceivo
that you are co.nnplimentcd in the Lon
don papers, on the precision and com
prehensiveness of your knowledge of
the details of this very question—with
how much justice you shall soon see, it'
I am safe in my reliance on the journab
of Congress.
A resolution, on this general subject,
was proposed in the House of Ucpresen-
intended to talce the colonial (juestion | tatives, about six weeks after the com-
between Gieat liritain and the United i mencement of the first session of tho
States out of the existing negotiation.
Mr. GalLitin enumerated several rea
sons why the American Government
did not so understand the act. These
reasons it i.s iiot now necessary to con-
f,if!er, hecanso it matters not, at present,
whotlicr they are good or bad. They
