PARTING ADVICE - The following is a copy of a Circular which was handed to the Passengers of an American vessel, on the 24th of July last, previous to their departure from Calais:-
"Gentlemen, You are leaving France to return to your country - in the bosom of a nation allied to our's [sic]. The French Government, penetrated with the motives which distinguish its triumphant career, only wishes that you may repeat to your countrymen the exact recital of what you have seen. I am charged by my Government to inform you, that it will endeavour to protect those who keep within the bounds of reason, in proportion as it will punish those, who, carried away by unruly passions, partake of the rage of our enemies, - spread alarming reports of France, - and by false conjectures engender animosity. The eyes of France are turned to the new world as well as to this; and the hero who governs her knows well how to distinguish the friends of peace and concord, from her enemies. If any one among you has cause to complain of any rigorous treatment, he must not attribute it to an unjust motive, but to the impossibility under which a Government, surrounded by enemies, has of guarding against their attacks, without exercising such rigorous measures; but our friendship for the United States is sincere."
            Signed by the Prefect of the Town.

THE BRITISH FLEET in danger! - "The British have (says an American Paper of June), on the Halifax, Newfoundland, and West India Stations, three sail of the line, twenty-one frigates, nineteen sloops of war, and eighteen smaller vessels; making a total of sixty-one armed vessels - but, to meet this force, we have the following remains of as gallant a little navy as ever floated on the ocean:
The President, 44 guns, Commodore Rodgers,
United States, 44, Commodore Decatur,
Constitution, 44, Captain Hull,
Chesapeake, 36, Captain ----
Constellation, 36, Captain ----
Congress, 36, Captain Smith,
Essex, 32, Captain Porter,
John Adams, 24, Captain Ludlow,
Hornet, 16, Captain Lawrence,
Argus, 16, Captain Sinclair,
Siren, 16, Captain Bainbridge,
Nautilus, 12, Captain Crane,
Enterprize, 12, Captain Barkeley, and
Vixen, 12, Captain Gadsden.
making a total of fourteen - and in which naval force we have the fullest confidence."
