It is intimated, we know not on what authority, that the appeal of the gentlemen of Massachusetts will be speedily answered. We shall, of course, duly notice it.

The speeches of Messrs. Wright, of Ohio, and Smyth, of Virginia, on the proposed amendment of the latter to the constitution of the United States, shall have a place soon after the rise of congress. Circumstances have given peculiar interest to them.

Martin Van Buren, of New York, as secretary of state. Samuel D. Ingham, of Pennsylvania, as secretary of the treasury.

THE NEW CABINET. From the Washington Telegraph of the 26th. We are authorised to say, that the newstracts, No. 11 and 12),

cabinet will consist of

John McLean, of Ohio, as postmaster general.
John H. Eaton, of Tennessee, as secretary of war.
John Branch, of North Carolina, as secretary of the


John McPherson Berrien, of Geo. as attorney general. It will be seen, that the postmaster general is to be included in the cabinet. We learn that the president elect yesterday received a letter from Mr. Van Buren, accepting the state department. The other gentlemen are in this city, and have notified their acceptance in person.

A HISTORY of Mr. Adams' administration will issue from the press of Mr. Force, Washington, during the ensuing autumn, forming a volume of 500 pages octavo, and furnished to subscribers, at 3 dollars a copy, in boards. The "history of the administration of John Quincy Adams" will contain among its topics, the following:

1. A preliminary view of parties in the United States, from the era of the confederation to that of the accession of John Quincy Adams to the presidency.

2. A view of his life and public services, anterior to his presidency.

3. An account of the events connected with his election to the presidency.

4. A view of the genius, policy, acts and results of his administration, exhibiting the operations of each of the principal departments of the executive government, viz: the state, treasury, war, navy, and general post office; and comprising the legislative and diplomatic history of the United States during the 19th and 20th congresses. 5. A view of the state of the country at the commencement and at the termination of his presidency.

6. An account of the lives, services and characters of the members of his cabinet, &c.

7. An appendix of documentary and other illustrations of the text.

Letters, post paid, to Peter Force, will be attended to.

That 868,381 tons of American shipping entered, and 897,404 cleared, from the ports of the United States, and that 150,223 tons of foreign shipping entered, and 151,030 cleared, during the same period.

I have the honor, also, to state, that the amount of registered tonnage employed in the foreign trade, on the 31st December, 1827, amounted to 747,170 44-95

COMMERCE AND NAVIGATION. The secretary of the treasury has transmitted the annual statements and tables. Intending to give them at length hereafter, the following extract from the letter of the register of the treasury may suffice all present purposes:

From these statements it appears that the imports, during the year ending on the 30th September, 1828, have amounted to $88,509,824, of which amount $81,951,319, were imported in American vessels, and $6,558,505 in foreign vessels;


That the enrolled and licensed tonnage, including 84,278 78-95ths employed in the fisheries, and 40,097 75-95ths in steana navigation,

As appears by the annual statement of the district ton
nage of the United States, transmitted from this office,
on the 24th December last.

Permit me further to state, that, in conformity to the 10th section of the act above referred to, the articles exported have been valued at their actual cost, or the value they bore at the time of exportation in the several ports of the United States, from which they were exported; and that the articles, imported were valued at their actual cost, or the value which they bore in the foreign port from whence they were imported into the United States, free of any subsequent charges whatever. I have the honor to be, &c. JOSEPH NOURSE, reg. Hon. Richard Rush, secretary of the treasury.

From the preceding it appears, that, in the last. treasury year, we imported the large sum of $16,245,000 more than we exported, to say nothing of short entries at the custom house, or on account of goods otherwise fraudulently introduced. We may easily believe that the apparent balance was at least twenty millions. A considerable part of this was made up in freights earned, or profits accruing, in the transportation of our own commodities-but the real balance against us was large, and how paid, or settled, we know not.

The steady advance and increase of our tonnage, is very satisfactory. The facts laugh at the woful predic tions of the opponents of the American system, and fully sustain the hopes of its friends. What will the authors of the "Boston report" think of their misrepresentations in respect to this matter? Will they not feel a little ashamed of themselves? In some remarks that we pub lished on that "report" on the 26th Jan. 1828, it was said "we venture an opinion that, for 1827, the [ton nage] tables when published a year hence, will shew that the enrolled and licensed tonnage was not less than 850.000 tons." See vol. 33, page 354. But such tonnage amounts to 873,437 tons, and shews the mightily increased coasting and internal trade of the United States.

The following exhibits the progress of our tonnage for the last 10 years-from 1818 to 1827, inclusive of both. The years previous to 1818 had shewed a greater amount of tonnage, but in that year the lists were cor rected at the different custom houses, and the real amount was ascertained.

Now the anti-tariffites would certainly have charged us with any decrease of the tonnage which might have followed the act of 1824-we appeal to their honesty, and demand credit, because of the increase. It is a bad rule that "will not work both


When the tables are received, we shall then present the items, with the former tonnage of places, at which persons have most grumbled about hostility to cominerce, and concerning a desire to destroy navigation, &c. to compel GENTLEMEN to withdraw their determination against the tariff, and yield obedience to facts placed in opposition to theory.

VIRGINIA. In the debate on the resolutions attached to the report of the committee to which was referred certain proceedings of the legislatures of South Carolina and Georgia, concerning the tariff, &c. it appears that Messrs. Fitzhugh and Edgington, members of the house of delegates, because that they opposed these resolutions, have had a column of matter thrown at them in the Richmond Enquirer. The first is specially charged with having "borrowed the newspaper essays of Mr. Mathew Carey and Mr. Hezekiah Niles, and the learned labors of the Harrisburg convention." Now, if these names-"Mathew Carey," Hezekiah Niles" and the "Harrisburg convention," are not enough to satisfy any one that Mr. WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.

"Mathew Carey" has retired from the tariff "arena"but is eagerly pursuing other objects to benefit his fellow men, and especially to ameliorate the condition of the poor. His benevolent and vigorous mind cannot remain inactive; and his hand is always ready to second the thoughts of his heart. It is a proud thing to hear one's name associated with his for a more honest, charitable and disinterested patriot, never lived than Mathew Carey, Such oil has long been made in the United States-in and so he will long be esteemed.

The fate of the resolutions in the Senate is thought doubtful.


CASTOR OIL. Among the queer things of "these our days," we notice a communication of Mr. Edward A. Broddus, in the Georgia Journal, dated Monticello 28th Jan. 1829, informing the public that his "triend Dr. D. A. Reese" had manufactured some "anti tariff castor ail," a specimen of which was sent therewith; saying that he had made 600 bottles last year, "notwithstanding the dry weather," &c. and telling as how that he expressed and clarified it, &c. &c.

As the ordinary bottle contains only the 5th of a gallon, the proposed duty would have amounted to about seven times the selling price of the oil. What would Mr. Traile think of a duty of seventy eent; per Ih. on cotton?!

[Such is the progress of opinion in Virginia, that if the people had the power to express their sentiments, we are inclined to a belief that a majority would shew themselves favorable to tariff principles, at the next elections
