Twelve and a Half Cents Single From the American Citizen . LETTER EIGHT. Proof of the negotiation between a Fed oral gentleman , authorized by the Lading ft daalifis at IVajhington, and Mr. Bier to place bimfetf in the Presidency, at the late election. “ The min:tier who by secret corruption u invades the freedom election, and the ruf “ hart who by open violence deilroys that u freedom, are'embarked in the fame bot “ tom.” Junius, To the PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES. (Continued ) Bv adverting ro the date it will be seen that the above letter was written immediately after Mr. Ogden’s nei:o ciation with Mx Burr, and a letter had been received at Wafhingron from a leading federal character in this cirv, derailing the terms of that nego gocianon. It will alf> been let n that the letter is of a highly confidential nature, and that confederations of pe culiar delicacy prevented its being made public to the world. Nothing *• but tlw importance of the flibjctff, and the bold unblufhiog denial of the ne gociation by Mr. Burr, could have induced the gentleman who it, to permit i f s publication. Nor was rhe writer’s consent to give it pub licity, obtained until a letter W3s written to hirn by a friend of ours for that purpose, ami to which the fol lowing is an answer. tc sth OHober, 1802. <l De a r Si r, u l was absent on n v;fir and did u not return kill this ..morn:after the .yv.j'A had clokd. I pcrctixc ike ‘*• tmpa tance of the requeff which is <f made of you, but I am under re 'l ffraints of peculiar delicacy, c< Our intelligent friends would I (t think be firisfied with my permit !l ting the fjbffancc of my confiden c< tial communication to you, to be Cf made known. The critical circurn “ fiances under whi v ch I gave it to £c you, have juffified me to myfelf.— Ct To give the cxaH of my letter ff may involve me in very furious per £f fonal inconveniences j but if you u have reason to expeH coilufion be- £ ‘ tv/cen Burr and G den, and that tl engagements of secrecy have been <c made by others, you had then better “ auttiorife a literal publication, and “in case Ogden cenies the sass as ‘‘ flared therein, you are authorifed c * by me to give the name cf , as “ the high federal char after I alluded £c ro, as the writer of the letter to £f Wafiningron, and on which mine tc was predicated. I made a memo c< randum at the time. I thought I £t had taken the dare, but I well re £f colicH it was in January. If <£ should prev'aricare, ai.d this he ££ comes necessary, it would confur.n ££ with my vv.fhes tliat you fignify to C£ , my name. I am able fully to effablirh the ££ fa6t. I can hardly think he will £< lend his weight of reputation to £< countenance such extreme profiiga £t cy. But we ought to suppose no £i thing impoflible when v.e confider “ the ffrong motives of party policy £: which may exiil for diiguifing the £ ‘ rranfadlion.” The public will now be anxious to know the name of the <c bi/b federal ££ character” w u o wrote the letter from this city, to an influential mem ber of congrcls, detailing the negoti ation. That name is ffill a rnyftery. It is eminently due co the gentleman co whom the two letters above were addressed, and who has kindly put copies of them into our pofi’effion, to fay that he has not communicated to us the name of the ££ high federal cha raHer.” Yet we are in pofieffion of a variety of faHs, derived from a multi plicity of correrff sources, which do more than enable us to conje&urr, with confiedrable accuracy, the name
