We have been favoured with American Papers up to the 14th ult. from which we have made some extracts; - they do not contain any thing of moment as to the relations between England and the United States. We also received Calcutta Papers, by way of America, but they are altogether uninteresting.

The Schooner Jackman, which arrived this day at noon, brought Barbados Papers to the 16th Inst. - They contain nothing of importance, if we except some admirable remarks extracted from the BOSTON FEDERAL REPUBLICAN, on the intended seizure of Florida, and on the President's Speech; they are too long for insertion this day, and we are able to make only one extract from the Barbados Papers, which extract will be found below.

Barbados, Jan. 9. - From some American papers to the 14th Dec. with which we were this morning favoured, we are sorry to find, that fears are entertained of a rupture with Great Britain and the United States. It is stated in these papers, that a Convention of West Florida, on the 26th of September, 1810 had declared that Country a free and independent state; and had presented a memorial to the President of the United States, praying to be taken under their protection. The president denied the right of the convention to propose or form a compact with the United States, considering West Florida as a part of the Louisiana purchase, and dispatched orders to Governor CLAIRBORNE of the Orleans Territory to take forcible possession of Florida, as a part of his jurisdiction. Considering the different line of conduct pursued by the American Government, when Spain was in alliance with France, will Great Britain submit to this seizure of the territory of Spain now that she is her Ally?

                  New-York Nov. 30.
We have been favoured, by a merchant of this city, with the following questions, and the reply of, Mr. GALLATIN, Secretary of the Treasury.

[Letter from Washington.]

For your government we annex two queries, proposed to Mr. Gallatin the Secretary of the Treasury, relative to the renewal of the Non-Intercourse between this country and Great Britain, with his replies thereto.
1st. Whether goods shipped from England prior to the 2d February next but arriving subsequent thereto, would be subject to seizure or admitted to an entry? and 2ndly, Whether a vessel with a cargo of British goods would be permitted to call within the waters of the United States for Orders, or to learn the continuance of the Non-Intercourse?
In answer to the 1st Mr. Gallatin shewed a letter to Mr. Dunham, asking the same question, which stated that all goods imported from the dominions of Great Britain, and arriving within the United States subsequent to the 2d February, will be forfeited, if Great Britain shall not on that day have revoked her edicts. It follows, that if no knowledge of such revocation is known here by the 2d February, goods imported as aforesaid will be subject to seizure.
In answer to the last, viz. Whether a vessel would be permitted to call, &c. Mr. Gallatin was not so explicit, but said it would be left to the courts to decide. That the law would be rigidly enforced in all cases of arrivals after the 2d February; and he begged it to be understood that there would be no release from the treasury department - He mentioned this, he said, because several releases had been made under different circumstances, which he explained, upon the arrival of vessels after the revival of the law under Mr. Erskine's arrangement. In that case it was the act of the Executive and of the British Minister which induced merchants to give orders - here, it was under a law well known to all the merchants - and that all shipments from England unless the revocation on her part was full and perfectly satisfactory, will be attended with risk and hazard.
Mr. G. is also of opinion that the orders of Council of Nov. 1807, are done away by the Orders of Blockade of April 1809, so that a repeal of her paper blockades (so called) is the principal thing demanded.
The President, by making the letter of the French minister the basis of his proclamation has taken it with the conditions annexed - one of which, is, that England shall repeal her blockades - From this it is inferred that a formal repeal of the Orders in Council of November will not be deemed satisfactory by this government for the purpose of preventing the non-intercourse."
Our readers, by referring to the non-intercourse law of Congress, will observe, that those sections revived by the law of 1st May last, apply only to the exclusion of the British flag, from our waters, and to prohibit the importation, of all British goods. Of course, American ships, with cargoes, may go to Great Britain as heretofore, even if she should not revoke her blockading orders.

BONAPARTE's privateers "love the Americans" as ardently as their master. Since our last, Capt. Adamson, of this town, has arrived here in the Pallas, from Liverpool. He, with Capt. Burroughs, of an eastern port, and others, were passengers on board the fine ship Zodiac, of New-Bedford, with a rich cargo on board, bound from London to New-York, which on the 28th October; in lat. 49 1-2, long. 10 1-2, was captured by the French privateer Eleanora, Alexr. Black, a reputed American master; that on the 31st October, the privateer fell in with the brig Pallas, put Capt. Adamson on board, and would have captured the brig, if worth the trouble; that the crew of the Zodiac were taken out, and a prize master, and 11 hands put on board her, with orders to make for the first French port: - That on the same day the same privateer captured, manned, and sent for France, the ship Charles, Howland, from New-York, for London; that Black said there were 140 French privateers in the channel; and that he intended returning into port after having made two more captures. The other passengers in the Zodiac were left on board her. - It will be recollected that these depredations on neutral commerce were made nearly two months after the date of Cadore's affectionate letter to Mr. Armstrong which our Administration has so readily accredited!! Were the United States at open war with France could the conduct of her cruizers have been more flagrantly hostile?

From the connecticut [sic] Mirror.

How much trouble and vexation Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Madison might have saved for themselves; and how much embarrassment, loss, and disgrace for the country, if they could only have brought themselves to think and act justly, and patriotically on Public affairs, and conquered an overweening attachment of the most unjust, ambitious, and tyrannical nation on the globe. The true road to national dignity, honour and prosperity, had been so clearly pointed out to them by General Washington, that the way faring man though a fool, need not have erred therein. It is beneath the chief magistrate of a nation, to carry with him into the chair of government all the little paltry passions, enmities, and attachments, which characterize demagogues and news paper editors. If Mr. Jefferson hated Great Britain ever so cordially, it was his business, as President, so to controul his temper towards her, as that the nation, should not suffer by its exercise. If he loved France ever so ardently, he ought as head of the nation to have buried the unfortunate passion in his own bosom, even if the effect of such struggle had been that,
      "Concealment, like the worm'ith' bud,
      "Fed on his damask cheek."
His duty was to lead the United States in the path of national honour, without consulting the passions, or whims, or good grace of foreign nations. As however, our affairs would necessarily be in some measure entangled with those of Great Britain and France, he had nothing to do but to conduct himself towards them both with firmness and integrity; and trust to Providence for the result.
What has been the fact? Instead of fair and impartial treatment, we have blustered to the one and crouched to the other. Every little pitiful effort has been used to irritate Great Britain; every meanness and servility to conciliate France. Let it not be imagined we entertain the most distant idea, that either Mr. Jefferson or Mr. Madison, has ever seriously intended to go to war with Great Britain. Nothing has been further from their plans - They well know that if they were once to lead the country into such a war, the distresses which would inevitably result from it would instantly drive them and their partizans from power an [sic] place; and forever from the public confidence. But, they have used the public temper for better purposes. He keeping up an outcry about British outrage and charging it upon the federalists, they have rendered their opponents unpopular; and by soothing the public mind on the score of French robberies and devastations, and alarming them with French power, they have almost made the people satisfied to be plundered and disgraced, if they can only keep out of the reach of the great Leviathan of Europe.
The Washington course would not only have saved us from disgrace, but have made us formidable.
