YOUK last paper informed us cf
the iflue of the election for mem
bers to conmcfs. It is very well known
that all the four gentlemen cliofen, re

and yet on examining the returns from
the eight lower counties, conipofing
the eaflern diftritfc, it appears that Mr.
M’Allifter, one of the two candidates
re Tiding in this diftrid, lias a decided
majority cf votes over any of the other
As the result of the election is the
confeqncnce of a penetal vote thro -
out tlie (Kite, and of the fjperlur popu
lation of the interior counties, it is to
regretted that the dale was not divided
into elective tiif 1r’ Z ls ;thc mctnbcrs wonld
then be returned from diflerent factions
of the the it a tw, and conilc'ueiitly be
better informed of the intcrcfb and

The c!ifti mode of elation woukfaifo
enable the representatives, going from
different divilions of the country, by!
Interchanging ideas, to forward the ge

bile, where all the representatives are
taken from one portion, and the more j
ex pole and and commercial parrs of the
country, left without a choice.
It will not be inferred from these
observations, that a member from one |
part does not represent the whole Hate,!
and indeed, the; whole of the Hates,!
when acting in the character of a repre
fontative. ihe principle contended
for, is, that as our governments arc of
the repreTentative kind, the members,
where proper candidates can bs found,
should ik) C taken from ti-Herein neighbor
hoods, by which mode, the condiments
would have the belt means cf knowiinr
the opinions and character of the repre

Neither is it wiihin the intention of
these remarks, that the gentlemen eho

their residences in the fiate had been I
more fuitabie. 1 hat the election turn- j

they would receive the fu fir ages of thole |

as the low counties gave fevcral of the!
gentlemen a very refpeClable vote, that j
the compliment had not been returned;
but as compliments now a-days, are
tilings much of course, the better way
would be to divide the Hate into electi

From the Augusta Herald, cf October 27
l “It is wich the grea’.di regret, we announce
’ the election of Caiilr A. Rodney to concrete,
in the place of the honorable James A. Bay
ard of Delaware, by a majority of 15 votes.
The unmanly, the infolcnt triumph of the
I Democrats on this fhameful iacrifice of talents
Land virtue at the shrine of Jacobiniim, is ano
ther proof of their much talked of moderation.
Thole who were unfortunate enough to be the
friends of Mr. Bayard, are ftigmatifed with
the epithets oi aristocrats and cones, from one
extremity of the union to the other. If we
were to believe the ilatements of the ferv'de
edit6rs of the party, one half the Hate of Del-,
•aware is competed of tories, and the poor
New-Englanders who have imbibed the fame
opinions, are all equally tire enemies of the
revolution. From lomc documents publifiled
in the Philadelphia papers, it appears that the
influence cf our mammoth president, was ex
erted on this occalion. If this were th.e flrft
jnflancc of the fha ueful conduct of tur philo
-1 fophic chief magi (Irate, we might pmiie to
make a reflection on it > but iritahccs of his
turpitude in cases far more repreher.flblc, have
Fcfiliced these slight tranfgreflions of his d*ny>
by 15 votes,he has gained his end, let him
rejoice—for v.ell he may, he has removed
kfiom the Representative chamber its Aril or
nament, its ir.ofi eloquent member. He has
.driven from public office, a man whole cha*
racier is too fair, whofc talents arc too brilliant
to be advantageou.fi/ con traded with his
Rejoicir.q at the event which gives so much
pain to the drfponding editor of the Auguha
Herald, not Mr. Bunco, nobody thinks him
the edi or; but to his director o we are not
furprized at his tormenting regrets. We defy
however, this editor and all his coadjutors, to
produce as much indolence on the part of the
democrats, as is exhibited in this short para
graph. We have it in our power to match
this “ infolcnt triumph,” by an article cf a
federalist irl ’9B, which we prefumt? its author
will not rejoice in calling to mind. On ano
ther occafloii the article we advert to, will be
That the temperate manner in widen the
iucccfs of Mr. Rodney has been noticed, con
fided ng the repeated provocation his oppo
nents had given, may be a proof of the fin- i
cerity of profeifions or moderation on the parr
of his friend', we anree : we are fen Able that
it cannot be deemed other wife.
