PAPER. FOR Sale, a quantity of outside quires imperial Printing Paper. Inquire at this office.





From the Washington Banner MR. RAGUET’S APPEAL TO THE PUBLIC No. III – continued.

On reaching the ocean, at the distance of several miles from the land, her commander saw a steam boat ahead, which had gone out of the harbor an hour or two before him, waiting for his approach, as if desious to speak  him. After coming within a short distance, Captain Clark, discovered that her decks were covered with armed men, and that a gun mounted on board with in hail, Captain Clark was ordered to let go his anchor, and proceed with his papers to the steam boat. With both of these orders, he promply complied; and, on meeting commander, was informed by him that he had orders from his Government to detain the Spark by force; indeed this was evident from the hostile attitude of the men on board the steam boat, who were armed with pistols and swords as if prepared to board and carry an enemy. Upon this information, and upon the exhibition to him of a documents, signed by the Marquis of Massaio, Minister of marine, which was declared to be the authority under which the steam boat had been dispatched, Captain Clark ordered the American colors to be struck, and surrendered his vessel as a prize, without the slightest resistance. Seventeen Brazilian seamen, a number of marines and officers, were then placed on board the Spark; whilst the American crew, who very properly and firmly refushed to assist in weighing the anchor, or to perform any other duty under the Brazilian prize officers, were nearly all transferred to the steam boat, as prisoners, where several of them were stowed so near the boiler that they nearly fainted.

An attempt was then made by the Brazilians, who were equal in number to the crew of the Spark, to raise the anchor; but, after an unsuccessful struggle of near two hours, during which time they could not move it, they were ordered to cut the cable. This command was executed, and without the precaution of attaching a buoy, so that a loss was at once sustained of about 1200 dollars, independent of 100 dollars damage otherwise done by unskillful management. After this proceeding, the Spark was got under sail by the caiguns of the Imperial ship of the line, and at 4 P.M. anchored in the harbor, under the guns of the Imperial ship of the line, Pedro Primeiro. The steam boat was aluted as she approached that ship, with the vivias & the shouts due to the victorious, and immediately afterwards the American prisoners were transferred to the man of war. After night an order came from the Admiral of the port, to send on board the flag ship of residue of the crew of the Spark, including the cook and steward, which obliged Capt. Clark to prepare the supper for his passengers with his own hands.

On the morning of the 5th, as if alarmed at the atro city of these proceedings, the authorities withdrew from the Spark the whole of the prize crew, and sent back all the American crew, with the exception of two men, who were retained in irons. The Admiral, however, having subsequently received fresh instructions from the Government, took possession of the vessel again in the evening, by stationing on board of her ten marines and an officer, who forced the crew of the Spark to go below, where twenty of them were kept crowded in a space so small and confined, that the actual fear of their suffication, so great was the heat of the weather, afterwards obliged them to permit half of them to sleep on deck.

ON the 6th instant, at 11, A.M., several officers went on board the Spark, and in the absence of the captain, proceeded to search and overhaul her. They commenced in the cabin, by turning the lady passengers out of their berths, and ripping and breaking up the berths, which were permanent fixtures. An eager search was made through every part of the cabin. They then commenced in the ward room, and entered the run by ripping up the deck. They broke the lock of the Captain’s chest, and overhauled everything in it. They proceeded to break the magazine lock, and overhauled four barrels of powder, which were there; and finally went away, leaving the same guard that had been placed on board the preceding evening.

On the 7th, two launches were brought along side  the spark, for the purpose of discharging her, but the wind not permitting it, they departed. In the course of the day, several passengers went on shore in consequence of ill treatment, from the prize officer. In the afternoon, an anchor less than half the weight of the one which had been lost, was brought along side, and a number of seamen were sent on board to shift the position of the vessel. The captors, during this day, continued their search, overhauling everything, and putting every thing in confusion, as it is expressed in the log book. They had free access to the stores of the brig; and when a soldier was complained of, as having been detected in stealing bread, his officer said it was too small a matter to take notice of.

On the 8th, early in the morning, two Brazilian launches came along side the Spark, with officers and men, who got her under weigh, and anchored her in the inner harbor, near the Island of Cobras. Here they began to discharge her, by emptying some of the casks of fresh water among the ballast, and hoisting the empty casks on deck. They took all the fire wood up out of the hold, and hoisted up the few bales of goods which were on freight. They shifted the ballast from stem to stern and examined the very skin of the vessel. At length not being able to find anything on board, except what appeared on the ship’s documents, the searching party withdrew at half past 3, P. M., leaving the brig in possession of a Midshipman, eight seamen, and six morines, and everything in the utmost confusion, sails half furled, cables full of grinds, and the wood, ballast, stores, &c., in the hold, have promiscuously together. Since then no further search has been made; but the vessel still continues in possession of the captors.

From the foregoing details, you will readily perceive that the whole of this transaction, from the beginning to the end, resembled more the ransacking of a vessel by a band of free booters, than the discharge of a civil duty within the jurisdiction of laws. At one time, as many as fifty or sixty Brazilians were on board. But the outrage against our national honor was not limited to these occurrences. To give a coloring to an act of hostility, deliberately resolved upon by the Government, no doubt many days before hand, in the midst of solemn professions of amity for the United States, it was necessary to affect suspicious, which, had they really existed, could have been at once removed by the demanding of bonds or a reference to me. It was necessary, I say, for the Government to pretend a belief that the spark had on board a Buenos Ayrean commission, a conjecture wholly discountenanced by the circumstances of her being freighted by women and children. The Ministers had no such suspicion; but they had a suspicion that  as the Spark was for sale, having been first offered to them, she might be purchased at Monte Video, by some agent of the Buenos Ayrean Government, and fitted out to cruise against Brazil. The officers of the steam boat who captured the Spark, indiscreetly suffered this secret of state to escape them, in the presence of American hearers; and , in my own mind, this disorderly proceeding was to break up the voyage of the Spark. So certain was the officer above referred to of the adequateness of the means to accomplish this end, that he actually ordered for sale his share of the prize money.

Let us now examine these means, and see how far they were such as become a civilized nation, towards a Power recently declared to be to be regarded by the Emperor as his “natural ally.” The vessel is within the jurisdiction of the civil authorities. She is notoriously destined for Monte Video, whither she offered to carry freight and passengers. She is allowed to clear out at the custom house. No suspicions are there intimated to the Captain. He is permitted to pass four or five forts on his way to the ocean, by either of which he could be stopped, and from one of which he must needs be boarded. He receives his visit, as having his clearance and papers in regular order; and, after passing out of the harbor, under the same good faith with which he entered it, he is made a prize of and ignominiously brought back; not by a force sent in pursuit of him, in consequence of information obtained after his departure, but by a vessel mysteriously fitted out, and manned, at midnight, and sent to sea before him, passing within hail of the very forts above referred to.

But even this is not all. To give éclat to this exploit, thus planned for another purpose but to give luster to the Brazilian arms, and to stain the honor of our Republic, the insinuation is industriously circulated that the Spark is a piratical vessel. The crew of the steam boat, picked men from the line of battle ship, where harangued and told that they were going in pursuit of a pirate; when the crew of the Spark were transferred as prisoners to that ship, they were told that they were pirates; the Admiral of the port pron0outiced, in the presence of a number of persons, that an American pirate had been taken; and, finally, on shore, the respectable American merchants to whom the Spark had been consigned, where charged by common rumor, with being concerned in the fitting out of a pirate.

Such imputations against their countrymen, and such atrocious conduct against their country’s honor; were calculated to arouse the indignation of the American citizens on the spot. They felt as if their nation was degraded, and as if the star spangled banner, so much boasted of at home, was no longer able to shield from insult and dishonor, those who trust to its fancied protection. They looked to me as their representative, to demand reparation. But what could I accomplish? I had been for years a witness of a series of the most unexampled wrongs, aggressions, and insults, inflicted by this Government and its authorities upon the seamen, the commerce, and the honor of the United States. I had, against all these outrages exerted to the utmost, the feeble talents which heaven has been pleased to entrust to my care, and all the little zeal which belongs to my temperament, in complaints and remonsisiances. But with what unhappy effect the records of your department will show. In not a single instance that I can call to mind was redress ever afforded. The offence of impressing, of imprisoning, and of degrading an American citizen, was considered as amply atoned for by his mere restoration to liberty. Ships and cargoes have been unlawfully detained for months, and in one case, nearly years; and have been either condemned by the corrupt decision of a court, or have been released without the allowance of a dollar for the damage sustained by the party acknowledged to be injured.  In the case of the ship Spermo, no promise, even of redress, has been afforded against the iniquitous decision pronounced against her on the tenth of January; but on the contrary a denial of reparation was indirectly proclaimed on the 2d inst. By the equally unjust condemnation of the English Brig Rob Roy, detained at the same time; and under circumstances precisely similar. For the detention of the brig. Exchange, in the year 1824, pronounced by a Brazilian court to have been illegal, not a cent has been recovered, although the claimants have prosecuted a suit for mare than two years, by special agent, maintained on the spot. For the brutal deeds which accompanied the capture of the brig Ruth, the treatment of whose master, supercargo, and crew has been unparalleled, except in the instance communicated to you, wherein a Brazilian commander cut off the ear of one of his prisoners, and was afterwards promoted for the act, not the shadow of reparation has been afforded. After six months detention, & suffering damages estimated at 20,000 dollars, she is merely allowed to depart free from confiscation; and, from recent decisions in other neutral cases, it is manifest to me that no indemnity for any of the spoliations committed against our citizens and commerce is intended to be allowed.

To remain longer a spectator of these multiplying wrongs was impossible. To make any appeals, in addition to those which had hitherto exhausted my slender stock of arguments, was only wasting time, and permitting the honor of the country which I represent to be frittered away by degrees. I saw but one course to pursue, but I was resolved not hastily to adopt it. On the morning of the fifth, having heard of the return back in consequence of intelligence received subsequent to her departure, I wrote a short note to the Minister, politely requesting that he would inform me of the grounds of her detention. To this note I received, at noon of the seventh, (the day after the overhauling had been commenced;) a reply, in which it was attempted to place me in the position of the party complained of, and to throw the onus probandi upon me I was, forsooth, called upon for explanation as to the “true destination” of a vessel, represented as detained by the Government on suspicion of intentions hostile to Brazil; and I was requested to weigh the mighty considerations which had led the Government to adopt this measure. In answering this note, which I regarded as an official insult, I did so, long delay. I briefly stated that had I been informed before the sailing of the Spark, of any suspicious of a destination different from that expressed in her clearance, I would cheerfully have lent my aid in easing them to be removed, but that, in the actual state of the affair, I declined giving any explanations.

On the following day another incident, calculated to aggravate the insult against our flag which had marked this transaction, was communicated to me. Mr. Wright, our Consul, had demanded of the Port Admiral the release of the two seaman detained in irons on board the man of war. It had been previously reported that the ground of their detention was that one of them, James Dwyer, an American, who has a wife and child in Philadelphia, was a deserter from the Brazilian service, and that he other, Henry Cook, was a deserter from  a British frigate, neither of which allegation proved to be true. To this note an answer was returned on the seventh, in a style almost as inappropriate and indecorous as that which Admiral Pinto employed at Monte Video in the case wherein he took upon himself, in the most unprovoked and insulting manner to allude to the affair of the Chesapeake and Leopard. Mr. Wright received on satisfaction. The British seaman was sent to a British man of war, unasked for; whilst the American, after being kept in double irons for four days, and after having manfully resisted threats and offers to force or entice him into the Brazilian service, was sent back to the Spark, with the painful news that about twenty American seamen, had been transferred to the brig of war Carioca, which sailed on the 6th instant on a cruise.

Under the influence of all these circumstances, seeing no middle course between national dishonor and a close of my mission, I adopted the latter alternative, on the night of the eighth, by a demand for my passports. On the ninth, I received a note from the Minister, in answer, to mine of the seventh, in which he undertook to justify the proceeding of his Government in relation to the Spark. And how do you imagine this justification to have been supported? Why by a solemn declaration that the Spark was outside of the harbor before the Minister of Marine issued orders for her being stopped!!! Upon such a declaration from a Minister of State, it is impossible to comment. There is scarcely a Brazilian or foreigner in Rio De Janeiro, so notorious is the fact, that does not know that the steam boat sailed before the Spark; and hundreds are acquainted with the additional fact, that her commander received his orders the preceding night, when the Spark was safely moored at anchor, without the possibility of escape, had such an intention been suspected. In this note not a word was said about my passports, but on the following day, I received official notice that the Emperor had ordered them to be made out. I am now accordingly making arrangements to return to the United States, which I hope to each in June, under the blessing of Providence; and thus terminate an absence of five years, which might have been prolonged for two additional years, had my sense of duty and respect for the honor of my country, enabled me to pursue any other course than the one I have adopted, or had I been capable of sacrificing public intreats to private considerations.

A copy of my correspondence with the Minister upon these subjects, which is all that has taken place since the date of my last communication, I will transmit you by the next opportunity.

I have the honor to be, with great respect,

Sir, your obedient and humbled servant

Condy Raguet.

Estract from the same to the same, dated March 17, 1827.

 In relating to you the particulars, as I did in my last, of the unjustifiable proceeding of this Government in relation to the seizure of the brig Spark, I omitted to mention some circumstances which preceded that event, and which I shall now relate.

The Spark arrived here from New York on the 27th of January, with a cargo and a number of passengers, amongst whom was a Brazilian Naval officer. The object of her owners in sending her to this port was to offer her for sale to the Brazilian Government, which was understood to be in want of ships of her description.  After her arrival, an inventory of her armament and stores was presented to the Minister of Marine, and she was accordingly so offered. The minister, however, declined the purchase of the vessel, but expressed a desire to purchase the guns which the captain refused to sell alone. The Spark it seems had on board ten guns, mounted when she was offered for sale, whilst the number expressed in her clearance, was but four, and this irregular appearance having been communicated to the Government, I suppose by the Brazilian officer above referred to, an order was sent on board of her, intimating that the extra guns must be landed before the vessel would be allowed to go to sea. On the 18th of Feb. Captain Clark called on me to take my opinion on this subject; which was looked upon at the time as a mere manouvre to compel a sale of this guns to the Government, and gave me the first information which I possessed of the fact relative to his armament, declaring at the same time that he had told the Collector at New York when he cleared out, that he had additional guns in the hold of his vessel. Although I knew he must have given bonds at home, for double the amount of his vessel and cargo, that his guns should not be employed during his voyage against any nation with which the United States  were in amity, yet I thought that as an irregularity had been committed in his clearance, and as he might be liable to detention by either belligerent on suspicion of conveying contraband articles, I recommended him to land his guns, and told him that I should report his case to your Department. With this recommendation he promptly complied; and, after continuing in port without the occurrence of any new suggestions from the Government, until the 4th of March, he attempted to proceed on his voyage to Monte Video, where I presume he intended to offer his vessel for sale, in the exercise of one of the legitimate rights of a neutral, of which it is not in the power of a belligerent to deprive him. With the subsequent detntion of his vessel you have already been advised. [To be continued].

We mentioned in our last, that a man had been committed to prison on some charge arising out of the sudden death of his wife. We learn that he was yesterday taken before alderman Badger for examination, and the testimony of several witnesses satisfied the magistrate that his commitment was called for. We understood that from the bruises on her neck, it is probable that the woman died from blows inflicted by the hands and feet of the man. U. S. Gaz.


Early on Sunday morning the stables of Mr. Peters, near Mount Airy, a short distance beyond Germantown, were destroyed by fire. Mr. Peters is one of the proprietors of the Chesnut Hill and Germantown stages; and his stables were, hence, stored with grain, and contained the horses of the establishment. We learn with regret, that all the former were destroyed, and that twelve fine horses will be lost – ten were burned to death, and two so much injured as to be of no value.


The Baltimore American of yesterday contains the following unpleasant intelligence:

Serious Accident to Bishop Chase.- The Cumberland Md. Civilian of Friday says:-“On Wednesday night last, as the Western stage was leaving town, in consequence of excessive darkness it was precipitated off the bank of the turnpike and dashed to pieces, the horses running off with the fore carriage. Bishop Chase, of Ohio, was seriously injured-some of his ribs broken and his left arm dislocated. The Bishop had arrived in town a shrt time before the stage, traveling in a coach presented to Kenyon College by our late townsman, James Reeside, Esq. – but being unable to reach Ohio in time to fill some appointment he was induced to take the stage at this place. The stage was much crowded with passengers, but none of the others were materially injured.


A melancholy accident occurred in Shenandoah county, Va. a few days since. The Miller employed to Mr. Pittman’s Mill, a few miles above Woodstock, had safely conducted over the river in a canoe a number of ladies, and was crossing for the last time with Mrs. Pittman, a daughter in law of Mr. P. first named, when the canoe upset, and both were thrown into the stream. The Miller, however, seized Mrs. P. and was conveying her to the shore, when the canoe, which had lodged above them on the mildam, broke loose and struck him on the head, with such force as to deprive him of motion, and both he and Mrs. P. were downed.

The Post Master General has established a post office at “Smithfield,” in Philadelphia county, by the name of “Somerton Post Office,” and Grover Roberts, Esq. has been appointed Post Master.

The regulations of the Department do not admit of two offices of the same name in any one state, and there being already a Smithfield Post Office in Fayette county, it therefore became necessary to give to the office above mentioned a different designation. We understand the name of Somerton has been adopted in accordance with the wishes of a number of the inhabitants of Smithfield, from respect to the memory of the late Judge Somers.


We learn from Capt Morgan, of the brig Commerce, from Havana, that the sugar crops were very good, and were coming in abundantly. Gaz.

New York, March 22.

From Carthagena – the brig Athenian, Chapman, arrived at this port this morning in 20 days from Carthagena. She was chartered to go to Chagres, and took thence to Carthagena 312 men, 28 officers, and 15 women. The Captain informs, that as soon as Gen. Montillo had paid off his officers and clothed them, they revolted, and went to Gen. Paez. Gun boats were fitting out with all possible speed, as was supposed to bring troops to Carthagena.  The soldiers were greatly dissatisfied, on account of not receiving their pay.


On the passage of the Athenian from Chages, the male was knocked down by some of the soldiers, and large gash cut in his head. The steward, also, was stabbed in one of his arms.

A French man of war brig of 24 guns had just arrived. The British packet Lady Wellington, just arrived from Jamaica, and sailed for the same port. Con. Adv.


Columbia.-The Journal of Commerce publishes an extract from a Maracaiho paper of the 14th ult., called the Liberal, which has been lately resusclitated, the Editor having been banished to Cornona with several other patriots, in the beginning of 1828. The time adopted in speaking of the acts of Bolivar, and the catastrophe of Ocana, is very strong, and the charge against him of intending to establish monarchy is unequivocally urged. The same paper contains forty two articles of the Decree of Gen. Puez, providing for the organization of an independent government. The primory elections were to be held on the first eight days of March, for the Choice of Electors. The electors are to meet on the 1st of April, in their respective provinces, for the choice of Deputies to the Constituent Congress of Venezuela. The Congress was to meet at Valencia on the 8th of the same month.

The following is an Extract of a letter, dated

“Maracorba feb. 20, 1830 – Affairs here, since you last heard from me, wear about the same aspect as they did. No decisive news from Bogota has yet been received, though a very short time must inform communication between this and Bogota, is suspended even the mail is not allowed to go beyond the Department of Zulia. Of course the merchants, whose whole trade almost is that direction, are very much concerned. I do not think that the non intercourse with Bogota can possibly continue long. Business at present is very dull.


From the New York Journal of Commerce.

From the N.Y. Merchantile Advertiser, Mar. 22


By the arrival of the packet ship Lavinia, Capt. Davis, we are favored with a file of Vera Cruz papers to the 2d inst. Inclusive, from which we subjoin a few extracts.

An order was passed, directing that the custom house duties accruing after the 3d inst. Should be paid in 40 to 50 days.

The conduct left Mexico city on the 20th of Feb. for Vera Cruz.

The brig Ant, from Liverpool, had stranded about three leagues from Vera Cruz. The cargoes of this vessel, and that of the French ship Inez, were selling by auction. A Vera Cruz paper wonders how they could have stranded in fair weather, and intimates that it was a mere pretence to introduce their cargoes.

The schr. Oscar, arrived at Vera Cruz on the 27th Jan, with 340 bales of American cotton goods, which have been prohibited sine Nov. The consignee gave information of the arrival to the collector, and thereby was entitled to one half of the avails. Some difficulties had, however, occurred in regard to the disposition of the cargo, and the goods were ordered to be deposited, until an order of Congress could be obtained on the subject.

Mr. Butler, our new Charge d’Affairs to Mexico, was presented to the Executive on the 29th of Jan.

The Mexican Congress have, by a vote of 23 to 17, declared the late election of Gen. Guerrero to be null and void.

The state of Jaline, Gaunajuato, San Luis Potosi, and Valadolid, had combined to establish an independent government, but it appear that dissentions existed in these states.

The General Congress had under consideration a proposition to declare several of the recent elections in the states to be unconstitutional. In anticipation of a decree to this effect, some of the local legislatures have voluntarily dissolved. That of Valadolid had closed its session in a violent manner.

Some disturbances had occurred in Cordova, and the capital Durango, originating in the recent elections.

Commissioners had set out from the capital, with a decree of the Congress, offering pardon to all the leaders in the late insurrection at Yucatan, who should return to their allegiance to the constitution within a period of 30 days. That state, at the last date, was engaged in establishing a separate government, commercial regulations, &c.

A committee of the General Congress had reported in favor of a law to prohibit foreigners from retailing goods in Mexico.

The wants of the Treasury, for the year 1830, are estimated at 15 millions of dollars.

The language held by some writers in these papers, in regard to the colonists of Texas, is very severe. They pretend to implicate our government as engaged in supporting them. In a report of the Secretary of the Treasury, he urges that immediate measures be adopted for the security of the Northern frontier.

Gen,. Barragan, who was expelled from Mexico by the late government, was now in high favor.

The schr. United States, which was dispatched by Capt. M’Call, of the Peacock, to Tobasco, for the relief of the crew of an Am. Vessel, had returned to Vera Cruz.

The House of Representatives, by a vote of 28 to 18, passed an act on the 20th Feb. requiring each of the states to contribute 45 percent of all their revenues to the general treasury.

The Chamber of commerce of Vera Cruz have petitioned for a revocation of the prohibitory duties of last year; and that the former regulations, both as regards importations and the interior, maybe re established.

Vera Cruz, March 2. – The Chamber of commerce of this city, charged 1 real per ton on Spanish vessel; ¾ of a real for vessels engaged in the Gulf trade; ½ real to coasters and 3 reals to foreign flags. Now that the Federation receives those duties, foreign vessels pay 3 reals 17 per son; and nothwithstanding these high charges, light money is not included in them.

From the Morning Journal

Before the suggestion appeared, which we made yesterday, of the expediency of the interference of the Mayor to prevent the occrurrence  of one or more duels which were likely to occur, a meeting took place between William Miller, Jr. and Lieturenant Charles G Hunter, of the Navy, in which the former gentleman was shot dead upon the first fire. The duel took place early on Sunday afternoon, below Chester, in the State of Delaware, and all the surviving parties concerned have fled. The excitement that has been produced in this community by so horrible and unusual an occurance is very great. Mr. Miller was a young gentleman of the Bar, who has always borne an amiable character, and although we would not say a word to exculpate any duelist, yet he was certainly dragged into the measure by the most trivial causes. The dispute between him and his antagonist was the third of a series which has grown out of a feud between two other individuals. In order to promote a reconciliation between one pair of the disputants, a letter had been written by the friends of one of the gentlemen, acknowledging that he had been in error, and expressing a hope that the affair would be quieted without further irritation. This proposal was addressed to Mr. Miller, as a friend of the parties, who was immediately waited upon by Lt. Hunter, on behalf of the gentleman alluded to in the letter, requesting the return of the original and all the copies that had been made of it. The request was immediately complied with by Mr. Miller, who gave up all the copies within his reach, and the papers were destroyed. On the next day, however, the letter appeared in print, and Hunter at once accused Miller with duplicity, and challenged him. Mr. Miller asserted that the publication was made without his knowledge, and refused to accept the challenge, alleging the insufficiency of the provocation. Upon this, Hunter posted him in handbills, declaring at the same time that he held himself ready to meet Mr. Miller. Thus goaded, Miller accepted the challenge, and the fatal meeting took place.  

In the name of the public we call on the Mayor to take the most efficient measures to arrest the principal and seconds, and bring them to justice. And it is our anxious hope that if secured, no consideration shall avert from them the utmost degree of punishment which the acts prescribe.

That the affair, so far as these parties are concerned, may be truly before the public, we insert the following documents. The first is a letter from individuals in New Brunswick, N. J. to Mr. Miller.

Sir: We the undersigned, friends to Mr. Charles H. Duryee of the U. S. Navy, having been informed of a statement made by your friend, Mr. R. Dillon Drake, of the difficulty existing between your friend and Mr. Duryee, beg to make the following communication.

We are willing to touch upon the unfortunate subject which has laid the foundation of this misunderstanding, and beg to take up Mr. Drake’s statement, at that point which is yet unsettled and which involves Mr. Duryee, and that the grounds upon which we are about to act, may be fully known, we are impelled to state that we disapprove that part of Mr. Duryee’s conduct which has now become the subject of discussion nor do we intend to dictate to Mr. Duryee what we shall do, as we deem that he has now lost the privilege to trace his own line of conduct and that it rests with Mr. Drake to point out what step on the part of Mr. Duryee shall efface the stain which this rashness of Duryee has put upon the character of your friend.

We cannot come forward to shield our friend from the consequences which may occur, but after reflecting and consulting together we have strengthened each other in the hope that this matter may be honorably adjusted; that the character and credit of both parties may be equally maintained, and society benefited by an illustration of the maxim that it requires more courage to acknowledge and atone for an insult then shrink from the feeling that prompts us to the act. We can confidently advance that Mr. Duryee is convinced of his error,  that he is willing to acknowledge he committed it, while under such excitement as his reason could not control.

The spirit of moderation which pervades the statement of Mr. Duryee, has given to those, among us who are not personally aquainted with him, a high opinion of his character, and we trust that the same spirit will lead to an amicable adjustment of this affair; we would propose that a committee on our part should meet one composed of the friends of Mr. Drake, at Tenton, where other reasons shall be adduced to palliate the aggression which this form of communication would preclude should this meet the approbation of Mr. Drake and his friends, please appoint a day on which our committee may meet that of Mr. Drake’s friends.

We are respectfully, Sir, your most obedient servants,

R. A. De Russy

To Wm Miller, Jun. Esq.

Mr. Miller replied in the following letter:

Philadelphia, March 9.

Gentlemen-I had the honour of receiving your letter of the 7th, yesterday afternoon, and lost no time in laying it before Mr. Drake and his friends. After careful consideration of the subject, I have the pleasure of submitting to you the following reply.

The difference between Mr. Duryee, and Mr. Drake is looked upon by the latter, as having been already finally settled, and in a manner entirely satisfactory to himself.

It is the decided and unanimous opinion of the friends of Mr. Drake, that no stain whatever rests upon the character of that gentleman, from any circumstance which arose during his late misunderstanding with Mr. Duryee.

The moderation which you kindly ascribe to the conduct of Mr. Drake, has been exercised by him through every stage of the affair.  He has never entertained any feeling of ill will towards your friend, but has acted throughout dispassionately, and solely regarded what was due to his own character.

Regarding therefore the affair which forms the subjects of your communication as finally and definitively settled, Mr. Drake and his friends are unable to discern that any advantage can arise from re-opening, and making it a ground of further and new discussion, and though they appreciate your motives for interposition, respectfully decline doing so. Assuring you gentlemen, that Mr. Drake, as well as myself, feels gratified by the obliging tone of your letter to me.

I am very respectfully your most obedient servant, (signed) Wm Miller, Jr.

To: R. A. De Russy, Miles C. Smith, Jas. Neilson, Hatfield Smith, Digby B. Smith, Esquires.


Then followed the annexed circular from Lieut. Hunter.

Sir-On the evening of the 10th instant, I received a letter from Mr. Charles H. Duryee, requesting me to come immediately to Philadelphia, as he needed my services as a friend, in an affair which admitted of no delay. The next evening I arrived here, and learned that a letter signed by five person of New Brunswick, N. J. had been sent to Wm. Miller, Jr. of this city, on the subject of his (Mr. Duryee’s) conduct in the affair between Mr. Griffith and R. Dillon Drake.

As this letter was unauthorized by Mr. Duryee, and considered by him as an improper interference on the part of those who signed it, the next morning at half past eleven o’clock, I called on Wm. Miller, Jr., at his office, and demanded of him the letter and all copies of it. At first he refused-but I explained to him, that unless he immediately delivered up the letter and copies, he must meet Mr. Duryee. He then said that he must have time to reflect upon it; to which I replied, that he had already had time enough since the receipt of Mr. Duryee’s note which was written to him on the subject two days before, and that he must give it up immediately. He then consented to give up the letter, and burn all the copies in my presence, as soon as he could procure them. I asked him what time would be necessary for that purpose. He answered one hour. And upon his promising upon his honour, that by that time he would fulfill his engagement, I left him. In one hour’s time, he really did arrive at the United States hotel, and handed me the letter in question, and said that if I would calla t his office at 2 o’clock, he would burn the copies in my presence.

At the hour appointed I called on him, and a copy of the letter, which he declared to me was the only one taken, and the one which he believed to be in existence, was destroyed by him. I then compelled Mr. Miller to draw on up and sign the following certificate. –

Charles G. Hunter, Esq.

Sir, - I have this morning destroyed in your presence the only copy of a letter received by me from five gentlemen of Mr. Duryee in New Brunswick, relating to the affairs of that gentleman, which I know or believe to be in existence. You of course understand that I speak of copies taken from the letter received by me. If I see or hear of any such copies hereafter, I shall have them destroyed, Yours respectfully Wm. Miller, Jr.

12th March, 1830

Wm. Miller, Jr. assured me that he had not shown the letter received by him from New Brunswick, to more than two person – if I recollect distinctly, those persons were Mr. Camac and R. D. Drake. If by any accident, it should be discovered what Wm. Miller, Jr. did show, or communicate the substance of the contents of that letter to any others than those above named, he will have an excellent opportunity of displaying his genius, by endeavouring to prove to the world that he has not been guilty of downright treachery and falsehood.

Notwithstanding that Wm. Miller, Jr. had declared to me, that he had destroyed the only copy taken, and the only one which he believed to be in existence, and although he distinctly understood me to say, that I would hold him accountable to me for any circulation of the same, on the morning of the 17th inst. To my great surprise, I saw a printed copy of it. I immediately addressed the following note to Wm. Miller Jr. believing and still believing, (notwithstanding any thing that Wm. Miller, Jr. may say to the contrary,) that he could have prevented its circulation, and that its publication was not without his knowledge or consent.

March 17th, 1830

Sir,- After your base and ungentlemanly conduct in suffering a letter to be published which you declared to me was no longer in existence, I demand of you immediate satisfaction. My friend Lt. Westcott will hand you this. Charles G. Hunter.


Wm. Miller Jr.

I had requested Mr. Westcott to leave Wm. Millers Jr., until he should have received a positive answer to my communication; accordingly, while in his office he addressed the following, note to Wm. Miller, Jr.

Philadelphia, March 17th, 1830.

To Wm Miller Jr. Esq.

Sir: You will oblige me by giving a written acceptance or refusal of the communication I had the honor to make you from Charles G Hunter, Esq. Respectfully, &c. H. Westcott.

He returned in answer as follows:

Lieut. H. Westcott,

Sir, - having had no connection with the publication of this letter alluded to from New Brunswick, but on the contrary, havig been altogether ignorant of such publication having taken place till you informed me of it this morning, I decline receiving the note from Mr. Hunter, of which you are the bearer.

Yours recpectfully, Wm Miller, Jr.

During the latter part of the above mentioned interview, R. Dillon Drake made his appearance, and handed to William Miller, Jr. a manuscript copy of the New Brunswick letter, saying, that it had been in the possession of his brother Dr. Drake. Upon which Mr. Miller observed to Mr. Wescott. You see, sir, that I fulfill my promise to Mr. Hunter, and will destroy this copy in your presence. Mr. Wescott replied “ I do not care about seeing it destroyed, as there are printed copies of it in circulation.

All that William Miller, Jr. may urge in palliation, will not make me believe that he could not have recalled the copy from Dr. Drake on the same day he destroyed the others, if he had exerted himself in the manner which a Gentleman should have exerted himself, after the pledge he had given me that effect.

I have no doubt that I will exceedingly gratify Wm. Miller, Jr. when I conclude by saying, that although I hold him in the utmost contempt, as a coward, and know him to be guilty of bare falsehood, yet I am, and always will be, readily to meet him, whenever he may think proper to accept my invitation. Charles G. Hunter.

United States Hotel, March 17th, 1830,

A request was made to the conductors of the evening Journals to abstain for one day, from any mention of the disastrous incident which is recorded above. As the friends of the deceased were in great affliction, we deemed that the least we could do would be to comply with the request.

Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Miller. His friends say that he did not consider that in his treatment of Mr. Hunter, he was doing any thing which would according to the modern “code of honor, “lay him under an obligation of fighting a duel. Mr. Hunter is said to have been concerned in several affairs of this nature.  

It is said that our laws for preventing dueling, want revision. Perhaps, the Legislature will not have time to make the necessary amendments during the present session.

REAL ESTATE OFICE. No. 8 South Third street, opposite the Mechanics Bank.

THE Subscribers, Commissioned Auctioneers, respectfully inform the public generally, and more particularly the Gentlemen of the Bar, that they have, in compliance wit the suggestions of many of their friends interested in Real Estates, fitted up an office in the rear of their auction establishment expressly for the registering of Real Estate for public or private sale, or giving any information within their reach, which may tend to promote the interest of sellers and buyers.

They have made such arrangements in the different branches of their auction business as will enable the senior partner, who has many years been engaged in the purchase and sale of Real Estate, to give his whole attention to that department.

To the Gentlemen of the Bar particularly, they beg leave therefore to solicit their patronage for sales ordered to be made in pursuance of decrees from the Orphan’s Court. It has been their invariable rule to keep a register of all such sales made by them, believing, as they do, that such a course is important, in as much as it affords, upon all occasions, a certain reference as to time of sale, amount of purchase, &c. &c.

No charge except for advertisements and Coffee House fee, will be made for offering Real Estate at Auction, if sales are not effected-or if the property should be bought in for the owners. When sales are made, the commissions are charged shall be as moderate as those of any other individual or establishment in the city engaged in the sale of Real Estate. T. B. FREEMAN & SON
