Ingratitude has been called the vice of Republics. On a late occasion we have seen the Government and people of the United States give a practical and triumphant refutation of this calumny by their conduct to Gen. La Fayette.

The maker of the enclosed Speech, accompanied Lewis & Clark when he was an uneducated boy, over the Rocky Mountains. The sentiments contained in it, are so much like your own, that a person unknown to you, is tempted to forward it to you, and it is without mr L s knowledge.

The following statement is made in the New York Columbian of Saturday evening last.

Presiding, in her family, as though its cares...
