We are authorized to state, that the Commit

ner on the 4th, to be furnished at the Mansion
Hotel ; as also for a Ball in the evening- of that
day, at the same place. Considerable pains
will be taken to furnish a Dinner not only wor
thy of the occasion,but also at a rate so low that
the circumstances of none can preclude them,
on the score of exrense, from participating in
the celebration of the day. The nail will also
be afforded at a low rate. Separate subscrip
tion papers, for the Dinner and for the Ball, are
left at the bar of the Mansion Hotel, where all
those gentlemen who are desirous of partaking
of one, or joining in the other, are invited to
C3ll and subscribe.

The Committee of Appointments for

selected ; to the latter, Mr. James Philips,

the community by publishing the names
of such mean spirited men as subscribe
for papers and after receiving them,

be, change their residence by running
away or otherwise leaving the printer un

Frederick Stccvcr and -Ienry Horn were

After the meeting had been addressed

said to be looked on with alarm by the

that the Russian soldier is too idle, and
in a state of peace, gives his ear too read

innovating reformers. It adds, that the

attend to the subject ; and a plan is said

ter either to embark lor thei destination now,
or remain at home till fall. It is presumed they
will make choice of the last alternative, on ac
count of the unhealthiness of the climat- at Pa
nama during the summer season. We add the
following-articles on the subject :
Private accounts from Washington,
(says the New York Mercantile Adverti
ser, state that our Government has been
notified that the Congress of Panama will
not assemble before the month of Octo
ber. The departure of our Ministers
will, therefore, be deferred till that time.
The Mercantile Advertiser, of this mor
ning, has the following paragraph :
u We have been favoured with the
perusal of a letter from Carthagena, of
April 13th, (received by way of Mobile,)
.vhich states that a French frigate had
arrived from Brest, with Commissioners
from the Government of France to the
Congress of Panama, and with, as was
supposed, authority to form a treaty with
Colombia. The letter adds, " there is -very
great expectation that Sfiain will very
seen follow the example of France."
There is, however, we imagine, very
little doubt, that the session of the Con
gress will be postponed till autumn. Ac
counts as late as the middle of April from
the Isthmus have been received, and at
that time the deputies from two only of
the American nations had arrived. The
departure, therefore, at this season, of
our minister, would be unnecessary and
useless, and it has been accordingly post
poned. The information of the Albany
Argus, that Mr. Sergeant and Mr. Roches
ter were to embark in the Lexington sloop
of war, next month, was doubtless deem
ed correct when given, but it is neverthe
less inaccurate. It is doubtful, we appre
hend, whether the Lexington will not
proceed at once to the lirazil station,
without touching at Carthagena or Porto
Bello, recourse being had to some other
publicans throughout itio fn;osi, to com
municate with similar committees in other
states, or in the vaiious counties of this
commonwealth, and to pursue generally,
all such measures as may be deemed ex
pedient, in order to insure, at the close
of the present term of the Presidential
ofiice, the triumphant election of the peo
ple's candidate.
One or two members, during the sit

London papers to the 22d of April have
been received in Boston. They contain
very little news. It was expected that the
dissolution of Parliament would take
place some time from the middle of May
to the second week in June, but the pre

dates from Greece, Missolonghi had not
surrendered, and the accounts of this event
hpfme received, as we conjectured, were
untrue. The Earl of Liverpool, in the
House of Lords, in answer to an inquiry
respecting the letter which has been pub

to be from on English colonel, said, " the
facts mentioned in the letter could not
