*- -^Fugitives for their CW«« or their Virtue*!”

Among the passengers arrived at New-York, on the

Not by giving information against ‘ his associates; not” by
revealing secret facts which have come to his knowledge

which the federalists have gained!—Richmond Enquirer.
the usual federal spleen mid misrepresentation against
the character and talents of distinguished republicans-
But the shafts of this malicious detraction fall pointless
before their superior talents and sterling integrity.
The American people are truly prosperous—blest with
rulers desirous to promote their happiness, and the ag
grandizement of the nation—to subserve the interests of
the people, and not the cause of a party.
Let candid men of all parties, seriously take into con*
sideration the object of the late war ponder upon the
causes which led to its declaration-view it in its various
stages, its termination and final tendency—and they will
profit from the conviction which cannot fail to attend
such an enquiry. “They will be convinced of the neces
sity ofsupporting, with all their might, the government
of their country,” instead of combining with a faction,
whose sole aim is to prostrate its liberties in the dust.
To our manufactures Congress should extend its fos
tering hand. They did render some benefits to them
last session; but they must do more-, indeed it is a duty
which the wisdom of our Legislators will not suffer to
be neglected; it is pregnant with consideratiMM dear to
every American, who wishes to see his cowky inde
pendent of all others in the articles most necessary for
her use and consumption. The manufacture of woollen
and cotton fabrics has already been greatly extended
since the commencement of the late war; and it requires
but the supporting influence of the government, to
cherish our infant establishments to the growth and im
portance of maturity. It is this, with the increase of in
ternal commerce, which will give strength to the rising
energies of the republic; and render her totally inde
Duane’s opposition to the administration, we believe,
originated from disappointed ambition—his attacks are
mean and underhand, and although manfully support
ed by the colonel, the people must have better evidence
before they join in the hue and cry!
Duane puts us in mind of an old mastiff", whose teeth
are worn out, that can only growl and snarl at the ob
jects he wishes to bite.
The Aurora abuses the administration and all their
measures—So db the Fetin'; and Duane is called a De
mocratic Editor. The Democratic Party consider him
an apostate; and disclaim all that he may write.
Ever since the administration refused to adopt Duane’s
military system, and gave preference to the one by the
board of officers—he has poured forth yells more he-
dious than ever a wounded hound issued.
We wonder if Billy Dunne, would have been so violent
ly opposed to the best interests of the country, provided
Mr. Madison had given him an ageiicy to the Mediterra
nean, and made choice of the mighty colonel’s military
work, in preference to Brown’s, Scott’s, &c.?
If we place any faith in what Duane writes, we must be
lieve that Madison is not fit for the presidency—Con
gress are' strangers to the interests of their country—
Dallas is a knave—General Scott a madman, and Brown
no general—The public Journals are pot free, and no
Editor so upright as Colonef Duane.
While DHane is calling certain individuals in Phi
ladelphia coioards, we would wish to know his opin.
ion, whether the man who was, last summer, caned by
Major Worth, and who was afterwards posted in that
' city, is not a co ward?
Duane, of late, has consented to become a beast of bur
den, a very as* to that party, who have given him more
beating than feeding.
It is no secret, that the Aurora has for several months
past, been a most virulent opposer of the administration
—that it lias denounced the ruling party as one of the
most flagitious that ever bore sway in any country—that
it lias placed no reins upon its attacks, and that the Au
rora has, by this course of proceeding, excited the resent
ment, and justly forfeited the confidence of the great re
publican party. Stuck from the rolls of that part)', it
still continues its Quixotic attacks upon those who have
learned to despise its bitterest denunciations. And yet the
federal papers of Maryland, and elsewhere, are citing the
Aurora, “as a democratic paper, edited by colonel Duane,
who governed the democratic state of-Pennsylvania for
many years, and has long had great influence'with the de
mocrats all over the United States.” Is John Randolph
a democrat?—and yet he might be cited as a witness with
"the same propriety as William Duane.
Here is a plain dilemma—either Mr. Duane is a friend
to the republican party,, or he is not—if a friend, would
he so indiscriminately abuse its measures and its admi
nistration?—if he is not, then why so ingeniously term the
Aurora “a democratic jj&pcr,” m the ordinary acception
of the term—or why pretend that colonel Duane’s “de
votion to democracy has never been doubted?"
Call the Aurora any tiling yon please, gentlemen, a
•non-content, a discontent, a malcontent, an opponent, or if
you wish it a federal paper—but do not so far abuse the
ordinary force of expressions, as to call it a “democratic
paper.” Say, that it has been a democratic paper of high
Standing, but that it is no longer so; that disgusted by the
measures of die republican party, or irritated by “private
griefs” of his own, the editor has forever abandoned the
party to which he belonged; treat him then as a slate's
evidence, betraying the very men with whom he had as
sociated, and revealing the secrets with which he had
been entrusted, the argument would be -a fair one. The
witness would then have been fairly sifted by the rules of
testimony. Is this state’s evidence worthy of belief?—
he no private griefs to sway his judgment? Has he
no resentments to gratify, nor mortified ambition to
snolh, no secret object to accomplish? Is there no piqued
office-hunter at his ear poisoning the very fountains of
'wth and sincerity ? And what is the amount of his evi-
<knci?? What secrets has he told? What new fact re-
v taled, which he draws from tbfe dark to blast his old as-
U( l ? t6S? ‘^ re tlie y consistent with probability? Are they
Such are the points which would be discussed—but
is not the course pursued by the federal party. It
est suits their purposes to represent colonel Duane in
contr-idktory characters of a democratic editor and a
Vais's evidence—as belonging to the republican party,
The federal prints are out of credit with the people,
and thinking that even the treacherous apostate, Duane,
stands in better repute than themselves, they try to
palm his base calumnies upon the public as democratic
truths. But it will not do ; the people detest the Auro
ra falsehoods as much as they do those of federal fac-
The dismissed and disgraced Colonel, who edits the
Aurora, wishes perhaps, to recommend himself to the
favor of the British ministry, by his abuse of republicans
and republican measures. He has certainly got into high
favor with their friends the blue light party !—lb.
Since the war, and his famous retreat froin Marcus
Hook, the republicans understand Duane’s courage and
soldier-like patriotism too well to trust him any longer.
He seems to have foreseen this ; and therefore turned in
to abusing them, in order to have it said that he first
lost his confidence in them ! But his military manoeuvring
to keep out of the field of battle tailed to impose on any
body a belief that he was a brave man; and his editorial
manauvring will also fail to convince any persCn that he
is an honest politician.—ib.
The Aurora says that the republican papers “cannot
enter into the idea of an independent press.” We
have heard of ideas entering the minds of men; but Duane
must be sadly at a loss for topics of invective, when he
makes it a matter of reproach that republican editors can
not enter into an idea!—ib.
The Aurora is always making new discoveries, political,
metaphysical, moral or physical. It once discovered that
Redheffer’s perpetual motion was a bona fide discovery;
and it now discovers that people can enter into ideas!—ib.

At this and the same moment, two circumstances of
an apparently opposite complexion present themselves
together. If we cast our views abroad, we see the inha
bitants of Europe flocking by hundreds to the new world
—two hundred and thirty two from Hull and Waterford
who have just landed at New-York——one hu.aured and
fifty from the north of Ireland, who are coming in the
Lindsay—four hundred and five Swiss who have sailed
from Amsterdam for New-York—besides others who
•have crossed the sea, or are meditating a voyage in in
sulated detachments—France, Switzerland, Germany, En
gland, Scotland, are yielding up their inhabitants—and
■ “all Ireland,” it is said, would come over, if she had the
way. Some are driven by oppression, others by the
fear of it—all are invited by the charms of the 'brilliant'
character which we have just won, the freedom we enjoy,
the hospitable asylum which we have just opened to the
* And it is at this moment that we see inquisitorial cir
culars from the department of war and or the general post
office,* flowing from a resolution of the last congress,
entering all ourpubiic offices—whose object is what? to
ask the head of the office, however small it may be, “in
what state or county were you born?” and extending the
same to the lowest clerk in the office!—If it be meant by
this, to draw a distinction between the citizens of the
different states, and to drive the southernni.tn from an
office of the west, it is contrary to the genius of federal;
constitution, which ought to regard ail its citizens with;
the same impartial eve—it is against the genius of a con
stitution, which provides that “the citizens of each state;
Shall be entitled to all the privileges and immunities of
citizens in the several states.” If it be meant to distin
guish between the citizens born here, and those who
were not, the native born and the naturalized citizen, it is
also incomna'ibie with a constitution which shuts no
door of office to the naturalized citizen, except thajfc
which leads to the Presidency of the United States. It
is also virtually contrary to the solemn faith of naturali
zation which we plighted to the foreigner, when wfe
received his pledge of allegiance. If he be unwor
thy of confidence, he should not have been put into of
fice, or he should be turned out for his demerits surely,
and not for his birth—if the law be already too liberal
of its gifts, if too many aliens be let in, who are unfit to
enjoy them, change its provisions, and require a longer
term of residence. But we ought not, by this under
hand and insidious means, to set a mark upon the natu
ralized citizen and throw such an impediment in the way
