SAVANNAH, ‘’' ’ October 16, 1802. ‘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 biuteft heart. 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 tifed as evidences of weatvtiefs or pufil* lanimity. 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 m, e re was any connexion with a nevvs ■ cr of tile propriety of this system ■we can be no doubt and its operation HP:ii prove it beneficial. The experi ■nre of the late post master general ■nved that the appointment ot prin ■, or editors to the poll office produ lefs fatisfaction than that of other Eofeffions: it is confidently believed he Hd not for fome > ears made such an Mr. Hobby was generally con ■dered the immediate editor of the 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 information. 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 forgotten. 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 jpecies. 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 O 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. £3* The next publication of this paper will be on Wednesday, the 27th instant.
