Members of the late Society Eendragt are respectively informed that as only two
of them met the Commissaries at the Meeting appointed and advertised for the

beg leave to call the attention of the Gentlemen Members of said Society to
assist in the Honorably closing the Accounts of said Society, for which purpose
they again request a Meeting of all the Members on Thursday the 7th Proxmo

FROM THE LONDON PAPERS. [heading]
Jan. 29. - Some French letters received yesterday state, that Spain has ceded the Floridas to France, and it is supposed, according to these letters, that the Rochfort squadron is gone to take possession of these settlements. The report, as to the cession of the Floridas, seems to be justified by the letters from Charlston, in America, of the 29th ult. These letters state, that great apprehensions prevailed there in consequence of a rumour afloat that the Floridas had been ceded to France.
30. - No further accounts have been received of the Rochefort squadron. But
there is every reason to believe we shall be able to give a good account of
them - Sir John Duchworth [sic] and Sir Richard Strachan's squadron, are both
in pursuit of them, and wherever they go they will find a force more than able
to cope with them. If they go to the Brazils we have six sail of the line
there - if to the East Indies, we have six sail of the line there, if to the
West Indies, we have six sail of the line there. - There is no apprehension
with respect to the Mediterranean. - If they go to the Floridas, there is no
protection for them on that coast - if to the Chesapeake, they may be attacked.
Feb. 1. - King Louis, of Holland, according to letters of the 22d, is understood to have at length prevailed upon his brother Napoleon to consent to a modification of the present heavy imposts in that country, and a less rigorous method of collecting the various duties; and a proposition to that effect is about to be submitted to the Legislative Body of the one "High and Mighty," but now poor and needy, States of Holland.
Feb. 3. - In the present privation of all Colonial produce, which the Continent feels most keenly, the Berlin Telegraph and the Moniteur encourage the offer of rewards for those who shall point out the best mode of supplying the place of those Colonial articles which are in most request. Chymists are invited to vie with each other "in attempting to free the world from the tyranny of English commerce."
Norfolk, Jan. 19. [heading]
The merchants and dealers in flour and wheat at the Southward, are severely feeling the first effects of embargo. Flour has fallen at New York, Alexandria, Baltimore, and other places, to 4 and 4 1/2 dollars, and several great failures have already occurred: one at New-York last week, for eight hundred thousand dollars, it is said.
We are happy to hear, the failures at Portland originated, in some measure, in the demand for security for a large amount of Exchange, the Bills for which were protested for non-acceptance, on the ground of the non-arrival of the property, on the faith of which they were drawn, but would probably be at hand long before the Bills would be due, the present suits unnecessary, thereby releasing the property. One House in Liverpool is said to have protested £ 40,000. sterling in one day, of bills from Massachusetts - it having been agreed by the American merchants there, to accept no more bills until the property on which they were drawn had arrived.
Jan. 21. - The French 74, L'Eole, is aground at Hawkin's Point, a few miles below the Fort. She was going to winter quarters at Baltimore.
Jan. 22. - We have at length the pleasure of announcing the arrival of Mr. Rose in this City. After the cloud of ephemeral untruths which has so long obscured the public vision with regard to the source of embarrassment as well as actual situation of this Gentleman, his certain arrival at the seat of Government may be properly considered as cause of solicitation. We understand that the instructions sent by our Government to the Collector at Norfolk, were considered by Mr. Rose as perfectly satisfactory, and that on the 9th instant, he took passage in a packet for this place.
On Wednesday, in consequence of the accidental detention of this vessel below Mont Vernon, a barge was dispatched for him from the Navy Yard (in virtue, we presume, of directions from the Navy department): in which he reached the Navy-Yard on the ensuing night. We venture confidently to say, that every facility towards his prompt reception, in the power of the Executive, has been rendered.
New-York, February 6. [heading]
Extract of a Letter from Philadelphia, dated Thursday Noon. - "We have this morning received a Letter from respectable correspondent, whose information we know to be authentic, stating that Mr. Rose's powers to negociate are confined to the affair of the Chesapeake - that he is authorised to make full and honourable reparation for the aggression of the Lepard [sic] - but he refuses to say what this reparation consists of until the President's Proclamation, prohibiting British vessels of war to enter our waters, is withdrawn - Notwithstanding this demur, an opinion is expressed that matters will be accommodated with Great Britain.
"Government has received dispatches from Mr. Pinckney by the ship Powhata, arrived at Norfolk."
A letter from a Member of Congress to his friend in this city, dated Jan. 27, says, that it is understood, from authority of the highest respectability, that our differences with England will be honourably adjusted, without the necessity of resorting to War; and that the embargo will be taken off immediately on agreeing to a Treaty with England.
A British armed schooner anchored in Hampton Roads on the 21st ult. from Bermuda. It is said she is the bearer of dispatches from Sir J. B. Warren (arrived at Bermuda) to Mr. Rose, and that she is immediately to proceed to Annapolis.
The North Carolina Price Current says - Flour is down to 2 dollars, 25 cents, the barrel, and tobacco to 2 dollars, 50 cents, the cwt. In Maryland it has occasioned a resolution being offered for closing the Courts of that State. Such is the beginning of the embargo measure - but what will be the end?
Next President. - At a Meeting of a number of the Members of the Legislature of Virginia at the Capitol in the city of Richmond, on the 21st of January, it was resolved that James Munroe, of Virginia, be supported for the office of President of the United States, at the ensuing Election, and on the 23d ult. the Members again assembled, and proceeded to fix upon proper characters to be voted for as electors of a President and Vice-President of the United States. The Meeting then appointed a corresponding committee to promote the success of said election, by corresponding with each county committee.
Bermuda, Feb. 13. - His Majesty's ship Triumph, Captain Sir Thomas Hardy, arrived on Monday last from the Chesapeake; and on Tuesday the Bermuda, Captain Byam, from New Providence, having under convoy the brig Nassau, Gibson, with a detachment of the 99th Regiment, under the Command of Major Darling.
