MAY 20th, 1828.-Mr. Derrick, from the Department of State, brought me a letter from N. Villiams, the District Attorney at Baltimore, mentioning the seizure of a Buenos Ayrean privateer called the Tuncal, at that place, and asking for instructions, with Mr. Clay's answer-which I approved. This case is connected with that of the Bolivar, at New York. Mr. Brent brought me three copies of the proclamation of the treaty with the Eel River or Thornton party of Miami Indians. Mr. Dorsey, member of the House of Representatives from Maryland, introduced a Mr. Scott of that State. Mr. Breese, the District Attorney of Illinois, was here. He made me a present of a petrified pear, found in Monroe County, in the State of Illinois, in 1826. It has the shape and size of a St. Michael's pear, and became petrified apparently as it fell from the tree, without decaying. It is split in two, and the core is of a separate and different induration from that of the pulp. It is flattened on
