by which we receive all our intelligence, failed.
Under the present arrangements, the new mail
route established last spring from Fredericks
burg, Vo. lo Poweltoti, Ca. entirely fails of ac
complishing Ibe objects intended, and is of very
little, if any, public benefit. All our papers und
letters from the north are still sent round by the
way 01 Raleigh ; and lor their regular arrival
tere, we bare to depend on the crazy vehicle that
runs between that place and this, to atop which
hardly any thing more is necessary than the bare
appearance of a cloud above the horizon. 1 f Mr.
Meigs cannot, either by making the Post-Office
at Fredericksburg a distributing one, or in some
other way, have the present evils remedied, the
northern mail may as well be discontinued, as it
is only subjecting the government to a heavy ex
pense, without producing any equivalent advan
tage to the public.

but then our condition is perfect happiness, when
compared with that of the people of some other
nations ; when contrasted, for example, with the
condition of the inhabitants of England. Were

We can scarcely credit the report, that the
state of our relations with France is of the com
plexion which the following extract has given
them. A roost extraordinary demnnd, if we are
to believe the Washington letter writer, is in em
bryo, ready to be made upon our government at
any time, as an off-set against any demands we
may have, in the adjustment of our affairs with
France. IVathivgton City Gazette.

' Extract from ll'mhington-" 1 hough the gov
ernmcnt appears to be without infonna ion, there
seems some reason to believe that the Florida
question was referred by the king's ministers to
the Cortes, a committee of which body has had
the 6ame under consideration. It is lelicved
that the French government required cf Mr. (Jul
latin, aulhoiized on our part to treat on the sub
ject of navigation und commerce, to allow the
admission of French vessels into Louisiana on the
same footing as those of England, grounding the
claim on the article of the Louisiana treaty, by
which it is stipulated that the vessels of France
shall be adnitied into the (oits of Louisiana on
the fooling ol the most favored nation. Mr. Gal
latin answered, that he would not consent to such
admission, unless France would, by udmiitingour
vessels into her porta on the footing of I rcnch
vessels, give us the equivalent compensation by
which England obtained this pi iilegc. The an
swer is said to have been, that the cession of Louis
iana was the compensation, and that in virtue of
the stipulation on our part, the vessels of France
were entitled to be received in Louisiana on4hc
most favoured footing allowed, whether gratui
tously or for a compensation, to the vessels of
any other foreign power. Not only is this un
tenable claim jnade,''bii(''compesatiionT6VTKe
suspension of the privilege s is required, and the
negotiatiorr is transferred tcrWashingtonTw here
the pica of the want of powers could not exist.
It is possible that this unfounded demand,-for
such it doubtless must be considered, the con
struction of the terms granting the rights oT the
most favoured nations so often and so univ ersally
settled, aims at raising up acclaim, that may, to a
certain degree, operate as an offset agaiiist the
claims of compensation made on our parV: w 1
