In the communication just made, the Treasu
rer has trone berond the usual matter of the re
ports from his office. He takes the liberty of
sun going one step lurtner. in the late pecu
niary disastrous times, when frequent and rapid
rise and fall in the price of Dronertr.the fluctua
lions of commerce, the distracted state of the
momed concerns generally, and the hazardous
speculations into which some have been temnted.
have occasioned the ruin of many persons, it has
been discovered, in some instances, that those
entrusted with the public monies have imnroD-
erly applied them to private purposes, and have
ocen unaoie satisfactorily to account when re
quired. A vigilance beyond that of former times
seems required br the defalcations of the Dres
ent ; and however painful and humiliating the al
lusion, tne l res surer cannot but inform the Le
gislature, that it has reached his ears, that insin
uations have been made, that more strict ex
amination than has been heretofore customary,
should be made in his office. - He takes the lib.
erty to say, that the mode of checking the Trea
sury oy means ot the comptroller, and of exam
ining the accounts of both by a large and intelli
gent committee ot both houses, has been that
wnicn tne legislature thought proper to adopt.
If any mode of more strictness was required, the
omission was not the act of the Treasurer. But
the Treasurer believes that the minatinn
should be such as, while it left no room for error
to escape detection, should Drevent the rise of
umounoea suspicion, ana check insinuations too
frequently the offspring of malice or nrivate de-
signs;, and he admits that the honest doubts of
even single citizen, however obscure or hum

Icelings, and impelled by a sense of duty to his
country and to himself, und borne un bv the hon.

to suggest to the Legislature, the nrnnrietv nf
directing that the Committee 0 Financr, after ex-
amming tne vouchers In the Comptrbller's of

and examine the accounts of the Treasurer with

The Times, of Oct. 9th, says Confidently
as we anticipated the triumph of the Queen, we
could hardly have expected to bring matters to
so glorious a crisis as they have now arrived. Her

The Courier of the same date says i " We
have not space to-day to resume our observations
upon the evidence ' adduced in behalf of the

A passenger by the Martha informs us, (says
the National Advocate,) that the public mind in
England was never, at any former period, so agi
tated as it has been since the proceedings against
the Queen commenced. - Some apprehensions
were entertained that a majority of the peers were
disposed to decide against her, which had increas
ed the public. ferment, and considerably alarmed
those of their lordships who are favorable to her
cause, as to yie result. . The same gentleman
states, that an omcer in the army had been cashier
ed at Birmingham, for toasting the queen's health :
and that this had so exasperated the people, that
they had formed the resolution of chairing the
officer through the streets . . ... , .
Lord Holland, in the House of Lords, appears
to have called the attention of their lordships to
the political situation of the continent of Europe,
which he observes, had assumed a warlike and
threatening aspect, dangerous to the liberties of
tnose countries tnat nad lately asserted their na
tional rights. He concluded by requesting min
isters to state, if they had any official communica-
won wnn me Austrian government on the sub
ject, and what was its import. In reply, Lord
Liverpool said that it was no part of the policy
of the British government at this time and under
present circumstances, to interfere with the in
ternal government of other states, and thaVno en.
gagements to that effect existed. This he stated
with the reservation, that he would not fetter the
discretion of the government, by saying' what
course might hereafter be pursued. No new 1ft.
