FHOM NILES’ WEEKLY REGISTER. National Education. RESPECTFULLY ADDRESSED TO THOMAS JEFFERSON AND JAMES MADISON, PAST PRESIDENTS OF THE V. STATES. It is not r common occasion, venerable fathers of the republic, that could induce me to prefix your names to a public address. In my estimation, there is something in it that may make me liable to be considered indiscreet, if not impertinent by some who will not take the trouble to ascertain whether 1 am influenced by an honeat inten lion or not. 1 am unwilling to be suspected of either of these towards you—and yet when I regard the vast importance (in my opinion) of the matter that 1 have to propose and feel the weakness of my powers to press it upon you as 1 think it deserves, 1 am truly hummed. There is no at fectalion in this—-several gentlemen in the United Mates can produce evidence in my own hand-writing, that I havelong entreated them to undertake tb* which 1 am now about to do—they have unanimously and in very flattering terms, app...

PROCLAMATION. The tujtreme Junta of the Eloridae, to the inhabitant « of Amelia. A horrid plot had threatened to ruin in its infancy, our rising republic. Discord ever ready to spread its baneful alarms, had put us on the brink of a civil war, fortunately, we still preserved among us, respect for liberty and the cause we defend. We have discovered the secret machination of a despotic government, and we have saved ourselves from ruin, into which Spanish perfidy was on the eve of plunging us* Yes citizens, the terrible blow that threatened us, proceeded from the intrigues of our cowardly enemy; we have the most certain conviction of it. Only cast a look upon the promoters and leaders of the horrid scenes that have taken place. Is there amongst them, -on* of the bravest, who so valiantly and so gloriously defended this place, against forces ten times more numerous? No! the eye searches in vain for one of then;.— Wherever it perceives a leader, it beholds a person who abandoned you in t...
ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 November 1817
ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS. An article from Naples, dated July 20, says—“ The present eruptions of Vesuvius are astonishing. Copper, iron, alka* tin acid, sulphur, sulphurick acid, chalk, and ammoniack, form salts that are sometimes in a mass, and sometimes divided. It is observed that copper is very much mixed with volcanick matter; quantities of it arvfound different kinds of lava. Vesuvius,Tpce the year 1813, has been more orlessm a state of commotion, has entirely covered its former crater with a thick crust, over which the new eruptions have thrown two little mountains, from which come smoke, ashes, and vitrified stones. The earth is covered with bits of transparent glass—This erust is so considerable that if it is not propped up, the sinking.of the matter composing it will produce an ef&gt; feet like that of the eruption which took place in the time of Titus."

I Springfield, Mass. Sept. ?S. Maximal and Magnut. These two famous cattle raised by col. Abel Chapin of this town, were sold last week, for the sum of g 1000, to a company of ten gentlemen, members of the “Massachusetts society for the promotion of agriculture.” On Saturday they were started for Brighton, near Boston, and will probably be exhibited at the Cattle Show in that place, on the Uth and 15th inst. The largest of these cattle, it is conjectured, will outweigh any of the kind raised in this or perhaps any other country. Maximus, in the month of August 1816, weighed 2r,l6llbs Since that time he has considerably increased in size and fatness, and probably will at this time overgo 3,0001b5.

Electiona.-m- In Pennsylvania, Findley will have a majority of about 7,000. In Uvew-Jersey the republicans are triumphant—they have a majority of three in council, and ten in assembly. In Vermont, the patriotic governor Galusha, is re-elected by a majority of 6,326 votes. Each additional election gives us proof of the steady advance of republican principles. .
