HAYTIAN OUTRAGE. The following letter (says the Savannah Republican of March 22 was addressed to John Mix, esq. commander of the ship Ceres, who politely handed it to the editors for publication. The source from whence it comes entitles it to serious consideration: Port-au-Prince, 22 d Feb. 1817. Dear Sir—lt may not be amiss, on your arrival at Savannah, to give publicity to the following tacts, which have so recently occurred here; and which if twit noticed by the government of the United States will be attributed by the Haytians to the wont of nerve.

GENIUS “'LIBERTY. LEESBURG , VIRGIAIA. Monday, April 14. “ Aqumus” is received and will be attended to in our next. Having received instructions from the acting secretary of state for the U. S. to publish the laws of the Union, we shall be under the necessity of devoting the first page of our paper, in future, to the laws of the U. S. but we can assure our readers that no interesting news shall be omitted on that account. When the present dearth shall pass away we will occasionally give them a supplemental number. To cull over the budgets of papers we now receive for news, is like traversing the frozen regions of Nova Zembla m search of a'rose or the burning sands of Arabia in search of a cooling stream. Last week we thought we had an interesting little scrap of news about the revolt in the south of France : but this week it appears all a delusion—no such thing. ' That France is oppressed and miserable is no news, wc have known it a long time. We might fill our paper with an acpount...

You are this day called upon to delegate certain powers, with which you are vested by the God of Nature, to one whom you deem most worthy of the sacred trust. You owe it to yourselves, your God and to posterity rightly to bestow your suifiages. The civil and rehgious liberties which you now enjoy should be consecrated to unborn millions. The noble legacy bequeathed to you by your fathers should be transmitted inviolate to your sons. To do this it is only necessary to be cautious whom .you trust. Before you are two candidates—the one embracing the princip'es that glowed in the breasts of a VI arren, a Montgomery, a Hampton and other revolu tionary patriots, who fell martyrs in the cause of freedom—one is attached to that party who fi...
