FROM THS AMERICAN CENTINBL, Reflectiont upon the works of God, as displayed in nature. JANUARY 20. WISDOM DISPLAYED IN THE STRUCTURE OF THE CLOSE. “However limited is the human capacity, however confined be the understanding, and unable to conceive the great plan of the universe, we may yet, through the means'of our senses, and by the exertion of these faculties which we all en joy, discover sufficient to know and to admire the wisdom of God. To be convinced of this, we have only to consider the figure of the earth which we shall find to be circular, a form the best adapted for its surface to be every where habitable by living creatures. This end could not have been accomplished if the inhabitants of the earth did not experience a sufficient degree of light and heat; if water could not, in every part, circulate without impediment; and if the winds were not suffered to blow, unretarded by obstacles; for all these purposes the rotundity of the earth is admirably appro priated: it is o...

To the editor of the Wash. City Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 February 1817

To the editor of the Wash. City Gazette. * Sir, I have seen in the debates of congress some observations on the proposition made for obtaining paintings commemorative of the grand events of our revolution; and members have observed, that we must pay our debts and be just before we be generous. Ido not understand what is meant here by the word generous. If colonel Trumbull should have ten thousand dollars for each of his paintings, it will be more an act of liberality man generosity; for the public will obtain paintings worth much more than the money. Some of them will contuir at least twenty full length figures, which, at giOO each, (th« common price) will give the sum, without taking into consideration the impossibility of obtaining them elsewhere, to say nothing of the boldness, the grandeur, the style, and excellence of the paintings as compositions; and by one of our own artists, by a revolutionary officer who was personally engaged in the scenes. The government is bound to patr...

THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 February 1817

THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT. Such has been the misconception or misrepresentation of the annual expense of our military establishmentas to induce a careful examination of the military iu\vs and regulations, for the purpose of forming, for private satisfaction, a true estimate; of which the subjoined is the result. Where the military laws and regulations did not furnish sufficient data, recourse has been had to printed documents now before congress, viz; The general estimate of the treasury department of the 6th of ran. 1817. The report of the war department to the committee of ways and means, of the Cth of January, 1817, and the report of existing contracts for supplying rations, &c. of the 11th of January, 1817, selecting such items only as belong to the annual expense of the army, believing that the erection and repair of fortifications and furnishing magazines of ordnance and permanent munitions, and the military academy, no more belong to army expenses than the repair...

VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE. HOUSE OF DELEGATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 11 February 1817

VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE. HOUSE OF DELEGATES. Thursday, Jan. 30.—Two propositions were adopted by the house of delegates, of an interesting character—one of them relates directly to the call of the convention: the other is supposed by many to have an important bearing upon the same measure. The last was brought forward at a very early period of Thursday's session, by Mr. Blackburn, viz: to grant leave to bring in a bill “1 o make a new arrange inent of the counties into districts for the election of senators, and for equalizing the land tax.” This motion was op posed by Messrs. Doddridge, Colston, Gray. &c. and supported by Messrs. Blackburn, Mercerof Loudoun, Harrison and Tazewell The discussion took a wide range. Whether the legislature had the constitutional power to re organize the'senate? Whether the act of' 76, organizing the senate, was passed by the legislature in its ordinary capacity or as a convention; and whether the act of '92 made any other change in that of '7...
