‘Contemplating thefubjeft generally,
thi?fc can be no doubt of a partial re
moval, at lead, on the ground of poli
tical adherence: opinions in politics
certainly influence the conduct of men
in society, and though fome offices may
be deemed almost wholly, miniflerial,
it is aliened with confidence, that few
or roremovals have been made in any
of the departments, which would not
have been voted for by the men to
whom the present administration owe
their power. Are not these a majori-
ty ? or fliould the voice of the people
have no weight ?
As it refpetts the pod office depart
ment, we fully believe the removals
have largely contributed toincreafe the
confidence of the citizens* The date
raent published from the National In
telligencer, in our paper No, 6, we
kntf to becorrc<d. If the information
on j(hich the removals were founded,
was in any indance unjud, the fault
was not that of the pelt m after gene
ral, on whom no charge of precipiian
cy or of arbitrary conduft can with
justice red. No reason has in any
indance appeared for the belief that
the information was incorrect.
We have seen a lengthy publication,
signed “W. J. Hobby,” who was
formerly pod mader in Auguda. Al
though Mr. Hobby inlerted his ie
marks in a paper that lias never pub
lifhed the piece he attempts to answer,
while he is claiming as an acd of judice
the insertion of his defence in republican
papers ; we aflure him that we fliould
not think it incompatible with “ the
projefon of republicanism ’’ to give him
a place, did not our contiguity to the
, paper in which it appeared lender it
made it wholly unnpeefla
| Mr. Hobby is welcome to boad of
his federalifm, nor will we quarrel with
him about the names of W alhington and
Adams, which he is careful to unite.
The question on the popularity of the
present administration we leave to the
decision of the people : but when Mr.
Hobby denies the enmity of his party to
the government, we think it improper
that he fliould in every line exhibit it.
The conduct of Mr. Granger to Mr.
Hobby, is indeed the only portion of his
official tranfaftions which we disap
prove, though we know it to ss\e pi o-
the best of motives and the
W \\'e have long been convinced that
nothing less than an entire monopoly
,of power, honours and emoluments
would fatisfy the federal party aud that
in any attempt at reconciliation, of
which they profefs themselves so deft
rous, their opponents must go the whole
way to meet them. It was to be ex
'peeled, therefore, that the mildness of j
Afr. Granger and his anxiety to wound
the feelings of the individual as little as
,po!lible in the performance of his official
duty, would iubject him to a different
Return —that expressions originating in
an amiable difpolition would be ftigma

In writing the letter to Mr. Hobby,
| e port mailer general was doubtless
Bhfluenced byadeiire to embrace the firft
Btpportunity that had occurred to de-
Ware the fylfem which it was thought
Bjeceflary to pursue in all cases where

Eofeffions: it is confidently believed he

mmeraU' K afa<ft we think he will not dc-
H We have the molt respectable
Ithority fvr believing he was foconfi
dered, and have lome season for confi
ding in the correcdnefs of that opinion.
If he very anxiously desires it, these
reasons can be laid before the public.
Though he might not have had any pecu
niary intered in the paper, though his
purse might not have been lightened by
its losses norincreafed in weight by its
gains; yet he mud have felt a mental
intered, and a drong one, in the success
of a paper which was so often the cra
dle of his own children.
We find it the general opinion that
Mr. Hobby would have treated any
communication in the boorish manner
he has done the one in quedion : we
therefore think with himfclf, that the
lead notice taken of him is the better.
Wc are persuaded Mr. Granger has
learnt that mildness may be misplaced;
that pearls may be cad before swine.
We have said the removals tended to
increase the public confidence in the
pod office department. Mr. Hobby,
with all his boasted integrity, is not
confldered an exception. He may have
conduced in his official capacity with
the integrity of an angel, but it is cer
tain that doubts of that integrity were
abroad, and that difiitistacf on was to
be found in i.o inconsiderable portion of
the citizens depending on that office for
His abusive remarks on Gen. Meri
wether, it is oms to repel : we have
not the honour of his acquaintance :
but from the marks of confidence be
llowed on him by his fellow citizens, &
from his general character, we deduce
a belief that they are libellous.
One of the editors of t his paper was
present when Mr. JViiliedge read, on
the floor of Congress, an extrad of
Gen. Meriwether’s letter. -t (fated
what has been r epeatedly said here, that
diftrull and diflatisfadion were preva
lent ; that a removal was much wished
and that letters through the route vvhicn
comprifmg Auguda pod office, were
received much later trail they fell due.
This attention toMr. ?’ obby was ren
dered neceflary by the artificial confe
quehce his correspondence with the
pod mader general has given. In o
ther circumdances it would be impro
per to take up the time of our readers
with unimportant chara&ers,
While the post office establishment is
deemed ot value to the citizens ; the
zeal and ability of Mr. Granger, the
industry and economy which have
marked his conduct, the integrity and
republicanism of the man, will merit
and receive the warmest approbation
when the buzzings of malignity and the
burllings ot vanity fliall be unnoticed or
It would give us pieafure if the fu
perintendants of the tory Museum
would learn a little more Connecticut
manners and lans, before they attempt
to inftruCt others. I heir confunmiate
ignorance wouid make any, but a tory,
blush for belonging to the fame animal
A number of papers, of different
politics have been received from Con
necticut and its viciniiy : they concur
in the probability of a large increase of
weight on the republican fide of the le
o-iflature. Several towns within the
immediate acquaintance of one of the
editors, have republican majorities for
the firft time this many years.
Someone of our tory neighbors, very
wonderfully wife, reminds us that re
publicans formerly supported Callender.
We would take the liberty of setting
him rioht. His character, was not ful
ly known ; the fup.iort rendered, par
tial. —The tories have hugged him,
knowing him to be a villain.
