We are happy at length to notice an undertaking of so important a nature to every citizen of this enlightened community, as that of publishing a new and tjmfilcte gazetteer of the United States An\\ into so able hands, as those of the editor oft &gt;e National Register. It must be ac knowledge! by all, that a work of this nature, at the present time, is loudlj called for 'J he rapid and unexampled growth of our western states and territories, has rendered the gazetteers, at present extant, very incorrect—in short, the geography cf our country has not kept pace with its growth.

Extract of a Utter from the hart, H. &amp;. G. Tucker , dated Washington, Dec. 24. ‘'The great want of interest in the proceedings of congress, at tuc commencement of a session, united to the duties whiui nave pressed upon me us u member of several committees, have conspired to prevent my making any ‘•'ommunications to my fellow citizens hitherto, through your paper. Having, however, reported all the bank bills, 1 have now leisure to give you some ac•ount of what is going on, and X shall, as, heretofore, avail myself of your paper as the medium of conveying information ; as it is impossible for me to write to all, and as all have equal claims upon my attention In this letter I propose giving some account of the measures in progress peculiarly interesting to our part of the country These relate to the roads and river navigation.

NEW-OM.IANS, NOt. 37. 1 [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 January 1817
NEW-OM.IANS, NOt. 37. 1 Convict .AVgror*.—We observed in a Mew York paper received lust week, a paragraph relative to some negroes who had been taken out of the prisons bf that city and embarked on board of the ship Loan for New-Orleans. A note at the bottom of the article, however stated thSt the Manumission Society had interfered, and had spoiled the speculation. We of course presumed the business had end ed there, and when we heard of the arrival of the vessel, wc made no inquiry about the cargo. It appears it was still on board when she arrived here, and as there was no law in our statute book ap plicable to the case, Mr. Morel, one of the city members introduced a bill on mouday last to provide for it. In the mean lime the Orleans Gazette informs us that the municipal authorities have or dered the vessel out of the limits of the city. A notable way this of preventing these scoundrels from being smuggled amongst us..

IN commencing my editorial career among you, fellow citizens, I am in* duced, agreeably to custom on such occasions, to make known to you the principles upon which the Genius of Liberty has been established, and the manner in which it shall, while under my control, be conducted.

NATIONAL FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 January 1817
NATIONAL FLAG. The committee appointed to report on the expediency of increasing the number of stripes to the national Hag, have reported a bill to reduce them to the original number of thirteen and to Increase the number of stars to correspond with the number of states, and hereafter to add one star to the flag whenever a new state shall be admitted. A good omen Massachusetts proper, which has in the present congress thirteen federal members, has elected four republicans for the next congress, six federalists and in three districts there was no choice . Thus it appears that Boston statn/i federalism sinks as our country riscs. The latest advices from Europe are not highly interesting. Every day how ever brings confirmation strong of the distressed situation of England, The sympathetic tear should freely flow for those miserable victims who delve out a life of wretchedness to support a corrupt and licentious court. The following is a faint portraiture of the present slate of England...

VALUE OF REPUTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 January 1817
VALUE OF REPUTATION. The following eloquent effusion on the valued reputation, is extracted from the speech of Charles Philips, esq at the court house of Galway, Ireland, on the Ist of April last, in a case of libel on the rev. C. O'Mullen, a catholic clergyman: “What damages then can you give? I am content to leave the defendant's crimes altogether out of the question, but how ci n you rtcompence the suffer ings of my client? Who shall estimate the cost ■ of priceless reputation—that impress which gives this human dross its currency, without whiclvwe stand dcs pised, debased, depreciated? Who shall repair it injured? Who can redeem it lost? Oh! well and truly dots the greet philosopher of poetry esteem the world s wealth as “trash 1 * in the comparison—without it gold has no value—birth, to distinction—station, no dignity—beauty, no charm—age, no reverence. Or should I not rather say, without it, every treasure impoverishes, every grace deforms, every dignity degrades and all the a...

DOMESTIC ECONOMY. To the editors of the Messenger. gentlemen— Sceingsomccommcms made by you in the Saturday’s paper upon the alarming prospects of crops, which we find_ more general than was expected. I have thought proper to suggest, through your paper a remedy by which the evil may be reduced one third, and iu caecs where indigence cannot afford it at this reduction, it may be extended to one half, although perhaps not with equal success. This remedy is known to and practised by many , and I am only surprised that it has not been communicated before this— Take one third of the quantity inten Bed for bread—of Irish potatoes, peal them very nice, boil them in a covered pot (earthen is preferable) until they be come very mealy, then press them thro a sceive or cullender, add them to. the yeast, &amp;c. and then the flour, making all up into a stiff dough This I have tried, and without prejudice pronounce it to be superior to the customary mode—As the potatoes give an addition...
‘DELIVERANCES [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 January 1817
‘DELIVERANCES The deliverance of France from the cormorant Bonaparte, and the placing her under the ‘legitimate’ Louis, is thus humorously portrayed in an address pronounced at Bristol, (R. I) on the 4th of July.— [Bose. Pat. ‘Onthe continent of Europe, and with' in one year, the rights of man have seen a dreadful outrage; a king, forced upon a nation at its own expense, and against its own wishes. I believe no one doubts that the Frenchmen had to pay for their deliverance, and that roundly too, considering it was what they never called for. I have sometimes thought, that the history of the restoration of the Bourbons, if thrown into a familiar dramatic form, would stand as follows: ‘Messrs. A. and B. meet their neighbor C. in the street, and thus accost him: ‘Cousin, we have for some time observed that your chin is too long to look handsome, and shall therefoie, out of pure regard, take you to yonder grindstone, and grind off a small piece of it.

BIBLE SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 January 1817
BIBLE SOCIETIES. It iWwich to be lamented, that Re gion, that most important article, so t sential to the happiness of man bo here and hereafter, should be so divide and subdivided, into various systems a conflicting sectaries, each of them co tending against the other, and nearly of them looking for the mastery of the others—The, Bible Societies, t Missionary Societies, the Sunday Scht Societies, and even that cheap and sip pie mode of education brought forwa by Bell and Lancaster, are matters contention and po'iticai animosity! '1 here is a strong schism amongst t Bible Societies of Britain—One pai wishes to distribute both the Old a New Testament—another desires to cl tribute only the New Testament and t fTayer book—and another party, prol bly aiorc nume,ous then both the otht in Europe, are decidedly against the &lt;1 tribution of any of them. Believing that a general promulgati of the sacred scriptures would be saints to mankind, we cannot help aclmiri one trait in the ...
