Mr- Oicen's JYew System ,— It is known to our readers that Mr. Robert Owen of New- Lanark in Scotland, arrived in this countiy several months ago, with a view o f purchasing the property of the Harmonites on the Wabash in Indiana, where he designed to introduce his newsystem of education into the United States. A short time previous to the close of the late session of Congress, he delivered twoLectures in the Hall Of Representatives before the Pres­ ident, the Heads of the several Departments, the judges of the Supreme Court, and the Members ofbofh Houses o f Gon{fress,in which he explained the principles o f his system, and specified some of the revolutions tvhich it isdes- tined lo produce in the world. In his opinion, all mankind, with the exception of himself, are, and ever have been, in an errour respect­ ing human nature. By much reading, reflec­ tion, and intercourse with iiitcliigent persons, he has discovered tliat mah is not naturally corrupt—that he is not a moral being, a prop­ er subject.of rewards and punislmienls—that he is altogether thecreatureof circumstance—, and that nothing'is necessary but tp: give a proper direolioii to circumstances in order to render him wise, virtuous, and happy. This ■opinion is confirmed by the experiment Which has, for several jtCars, been going on at iSfe-ir- Lanark; b'y the Infant schools in Londonanff vicinity, which, he says, originated in tliat cs- tabjiriiment; and by all the institutions in Eu­ rope fur improving the condition of- the poor if the peoplq are interpstfcd in whatsoever relates to the conduct p f (heir civil rul6r.s,they __________ _ ___ ____ ____ are equally concerned for the reputation of an^ labouring classes. Finfling the7tatr of fl’<ir 2 brightest ornaments in war—one society, and'the established governments in j®^ their strongest advocates in peace. One, that .quarter Of the'W(irld.„t6o unyielding to; who lias never drawn hts Sword hut to add Ini- dissOlve at Oiice.before his benevokny schemes, he tv as desirous o f making the experiment un- der a government subject to thecont^’ol of pub- lick Opinion, and vvhich will be more readily transformed into a new empire of peace, iutd- ligence, virtue, and felicity. In the course of his lectures in Washington, he exhibited to his audience a model of the arrangements that would be required for a community of five tliou- sand persons.*' Besides the private dwellings, and buildings foreVery kipd of jmcchanical op*, eration, it contained Lecture rooms, labotutc- ries, cliapel.s, ball and concert rootns,schools, an Academy, and University.^where is to be taught that cqntbihation of eircumstancc's on which the whole perfection and Jiappiness of man depends, In such an Cstablfehmcnt, la* rels to, his country, nor his pen but to illustrate the value of her happv ioRtiliilions.

Religious principle, it is well known, is active and powerful amopg the peas­ antry in Scotland ; and to this Very circOtn- stance did Mr. Owen owe much o f his succe.ss at NmvvLanark. It is not wonderful, that a person who does not receive the Bible as a-divine revelation, and has no hope Beyond the grave, should ho dissatisfied witli the prqaent state of tbings,and iuveht,theories for the moral tenovaliou of the •jyorld. Heathen philosophers, and friodern infidels have done the satae. T h e priucipal noyelfy attached to Mr. Owen’s scheme, is Uys peivei-ering Pjfort to carry i t into efibet. The theory takes its origin, and very naturally too, in the cortipound o f truth and errour, which, in this case, is adopted as the fundamental pi iii- ciplo in what H r, Q. calls the «ririibe. o f ctmnn- simee.

EiU.—The following letter was received by me, a few days since, and although a private communication and riot-intendcd for the pUb- lick eye, j e t it contains so jiist an exposition ofthe enlightened viev^s, and lioblo conduct o f its distinguished author, that I cannot forbear soliciting its publicatiba in your valuable pa­ per. This letter will be read W'ith the deepest in­ terest by Uye American people. It breathes the language of the purest patriotism, of the most perfect devotion to (he rights, the inter­ est, and the republican institutioiiS of our coun­ try’'. It is a manly, temperate, but convincing vindication of the character and publick ser­ vices o f one of the greatest men and purest patriots that this, or a&y country, has ever produced. . . . The PEOPLE are the-sfivereignS of thig country. They have established, by Jheir blood and treasure, a governtncnl founded, in knowledge and virtue, which has for its basis the reprbsmtathe system. How far pen.
