OUT AT LAST! [centered]

The American Papers we announced on Saturday, though with-held from us - have, nevertheless, been given to others, - Of course then, we have nothing further to say on the subject; for, the gratification of the public, by the communication of Foreign News, being all we aim at - the personality of the case, is of but little consequence. There is, however, a pleasure in knowing the cause of all things; and we confess to have felt particularly anxious in the present instance.

Respecting the contents of these protracted Journals - though a degree of publicity has been already given them, to some of our readers they may yet be strangers; we therefor [sic] proceed to the following summary: -

The first article met with, is the Report of a Committee of Congress, on the President's Message of November last: - and we believe it will be acknowledged equally as entertaining! - yes, the goslings have proved themselves worthy of the goose! nearly as wild; and nearly as sagacious! The flight they have taken is indeed wonderful considering their age! They have, in fact, "surpassed themselves" - and will, no doubt, in the end be - "covered with glory!" - But, to be serious; if length, false-statements, sophistry, and vain-boasting, ever yet demanded attention in favour of any document, - the one in question must be attended to!

The next article we shall notice is of a very different complexion, and cannot be treated with levity. It approaches us in the shape of a Bill, vesting in the President, the power of retaliation in the following case and manner: - if any citizen, taken in the field or at sea, by the British, should be punished, on pretence of having been born in the British Dominions - it is to be lawful to retaliate on any British subject, known to have been born in America, taken in arms, in the service of England; - or should there be no prisoner - in that case, any other person - no matter who or what! - Now this indeed, looks like war! - but as we hope, for their own honor, that so savage a bill will never be passed by a civilized Senate - we shall make no further comment upon it.

The third article enables us to return once more to gaity. They write from Washington, that "the bill for raising an additional force of 20,000 men - for one year, has passed both Houses!" - Of course then, poor Canada is conquered! - for those annual warriors will certainly never feel that their exploits should be as contracted as their time of service! - No! they will be ready immediately! Their generals will soon lead them to glory! - Who cares for discipline? - Equality for ever! - Discipline is Slavery! therefore, Freedom for ever! - Who cares for a knowledge of the art of war? - it can be guessed at! - therefore, guessing for ever!

The fourth and last article we shall speak of, is evidently written with a trembling hand. - Oh, the audacity of a British admiral! - Warren at this moment, rigourously blockades the Chesapeake! - Dares to take all that goes in or out! - The Constellation frigate herself was lately endangered! - Nay the very Continent is threatened with destruction; for we know, say they, the fleet has on board, bombs, mortars and rockets! -

Thus have we mentioned the most particular articles, at present extracted from the Papers in question. They are to the 28th of February.
