FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1825.
Many conjectures are afloat as to the
course parties will now take in these Uni
ted States. The Republicans are anxious
to maintain their principles, while their op
ponents wish to give full effect to the amal
gamation, commenced by the late Presi
dent Monroe, under the delusive expecta- '
tion that the National Happiness is to be i
best advanced by the destruction of sys
tem and the abandonment of principles.
The result of the late Presidential election '
has given fresh impulse to this wayward
doctrine, and although Mr. Adam’s admin
istration has as yet afforded no decisive evi-1
deuce of what its general tenor will be,
the strain of the inaugural speech, and the
appointment of Mr. Ring, have awakened
both the hopes and the industry of the Anti-
Democrats. If the rights of the States on
the one hand, and those of the general Go
vernment on the other—a power resting on
the people, and a cheap administration on
the one side, and a strong Federal Govern
ment with an extensive army and navy, a
rich treasury, and a widespread patronage
on the other—if, to enumerate no farther—
the landmarks of parties, founded in dif
ferent views of national prosperity, shall
be obliterated, and men of all principles
“ Black spirits and White
lied Spirits an<l Grey”
are brought to mingle in the administra
tion, it is clear that no set of political ax
ioms will be esteemed orthodox in the man
agement of public affairs. To this point
we fear we are (ending, and the conse
quence will be, that instead of fixing upon
principles and measures, the American peo
ple will be called upon to follow men and
their fortunes. The compass being thrown
overboard, the vessel must be bewildered
in her course by jarring and conflicting o
pinions, and although she may sometimes
move securely under a clear sky and over
a smooth sea—stormy days will come, when
her dangers shall be imminent, and the ab
sence of her best guide prove her greatest
There arc persons who condemn parties
for their violence, because they would ever
have matters conducted in a gentl and
smiling way. it is true that kindness,
friendship and benevolence give high charms
to life, and it is an error to believe that
these arc incompatible with the existence of
parties. Men who hold different opinions
upon a much more important subject, are
in their conduct towards eacli other, gov
erned by the best charities. Violence and
Party are no more synonomous terms than
are Bigotry and Religion. Besides those
who fly from what they call the harshness
and fury of parties, make but a sorry ex
change. They cease to defend their prin
ciples, and hasten to bow before this or that
great luminary which may glitter in the po
litical firmament. It is ain to say that an
American citizen will wash his hands of
politics. He cannot. He is by education
and from duty a politician, and he must
serve one or other alternative ; —if he is
not the man of a party —he must become
some man's man.
It is easy to see where his choice should
lij. He would not submit his morals to the
direction of any man, no matter how pure
or excellent. I’he governor of his actions
is within his own breast. It is so with his
political opinions—they are sought by pat
riotism, approved by judgment, and he
co-operates with those whose creed is like
his own. How much better is this than for
getful of the constitution, or careless of its
construction and application, to run madly
to the support «1 some aspiring favorite
whose popularity is built, as the Houses of
Lawyers are said to be by the Spanish Pro
verb, “ upon the heads of the ernbeeile and
unwise.” The friends of Mr. Crawford
were fortunate in the late Presidential con
test in this -that they supported their prin
ciples in the person of their favorite candi
date. They are at present entirely unfetter
ed and unembarrassed. They will support
the administration with cheerfulness when !
they approve its measures according with
the magnanimous sentiment uttered at the
Lexington Dinner—they will judge it by ,
Us acts. We shall express ourselves fur
ther upon this subject. i
We are induced to believe from recent !
information, that generally, the crops
throughout (he state afford the prospect of
an abundant Harvest. In some places in
deed, drought has been severely felt, and in
others the too great quantity of rain has
been prejudicial. To those however who
delight in the prosperity of Agriculture —a ,
journey in this country at this season would t
prove a real treat. We hope and expect -
that corn will be next year very cheap, and *
that cotton will afford a handsome profit \
both to the planter and the merchant. ,
We have seen a calculation of the result <
of (he coming election of Governor, which, 1
after giving to Gen, Clark the largest and
to Governor Troup the smallest probable s
number of votes, leaves a balance in favor (
of the last of Three Thousand Five Hun- '
dred Votes. - I
Darien Bank. —We understand (says the
Savannah Georgian) that a Committee of
Directors of the Darien Bank has been ap
pointed, who may be expected in this city
immediately, having for their object the for
mation of an arrangement, by which its pa- I
per may be received by our city Banks, as
formerly. The community, we are sure, I
will look with much anxiety to the result of
this mission. I
Pirates. —ln addition to the circumstan
ces published, showing the probability that
there are pirates on our coast, the Alexan- 1
dria Herald gives the following statement: j
“ Captain Parsons, of the schr. Sarah, ar
rived at Alexandria on Friday, from York
River, informs us that Captain Anthony of,
the sloop Justinia, while in the river, stated
to him that in the latitude of the Capes of the'
Chesapeake, he was chased for several hours!
by a low black schooner, and fired upon,
with as he believed, a six pounder; the pi
ratical looking vessel finding that his shot
fell short, and that he could not gain on the'
Justinia, gave up the chase and bore away
and boarded a schooner which Capt. Antho-1
, ny thought belonged to Fredericksburgh.
The armed vessel showed no colors.”
( 7 he Small Pox. —We are sorry to per*
ceive by the following communication in the
Charleston City Gazette, that this dreadful
■ disease still prevails in that city ;
t Communication. —lt is a lamentable fact
• that the Small Pox and Varioloid, are very
! prevalent in our city, and ii is the impression
of many, that Vaccine is not a preventive
against the infection of those horrid diseases.
1 Would not the Medical Society confer an
obligation on the community, by affording
i some information and advice upon a subject
, by which the comfort and the lives of our
I fellow-citizens are threatened !

The ship Phcebe Ann, Capt. Gardner, has ’
arrived at New Bedford from Rio Janeiro, '
in 35 days passage. Capt. G. states, that *
six days previous to his sailing, a Govern- 1
ment brig in 6 days from Montevid . , had 1
arrived with despatches for the B izdian 1
government, the purport of wh : . i was, ’
that a revolt had taken place in that pro- 1
vince. The General who had assumed the 1
command of the revolutionists, is the same 1
that formerly commanded under Artcgas—
“he had planted his standard around Mon
tevideo.” The General commanding in the
city, states that lie has not one thousand
men on whom he can depend. In conse
quence of the above intelligence, the Em
peror had laid an embargo at Rio, prohibit
ing the departure of all vessels bound to
the South, and was embarking sixteen hun
dred troops for Montevideo.

FOR THE CONSTITUTIONALIST. 1
[ have noticed a piece in your
paper, under date of June 28th, called 1
“Hamburg Reminiscences, No. 1,” sign- -
ed “ Croaker,” in which the writer says a '
good deal about “ Hamburg Ornette wri
ters”—“ Yazoo speculation*’’—“ Darien
Hunk, &c.” He further says, “ It is but
fair that all kinds of favours should be recip
rocated ; therefore as I am well acquainted '
with the history of Hamburg, and the Bank
of Hamburg, so named, known, called and s
denominated ; and as I am likewise ac- ‘
quainted with many interesting anecdotes !
relative thereto, and expect important com- :
munications, containing authentic duct)- .
ments, from gentlemen ot high standing, 1
and persons well acquaint#*! with the facts, 1
(I do like to quote, that’s the truth of it.)
1 shall weekly as I compile them, furnish
you with such a history that it will astonish
them, and confound creation.” And he
My Poems are Epic and is meant to be
“ Divided in twelve Books, each book containing” *

•• Hamburg, and Bank of Hamburg.”
In your paper of July Bth, you make (he
following note. «C7* The writer of “ The;*
Hamburg Reminiscences,” having become 1
personal in his remarks.it is proper that his
name should be lodged with (be publisher,
before the second number is inserted.”
As “ Croaker,” has twelve Epistles, or
perhaps more to communicate, out of which
considerable advantages may be derived,
I viz. First you will get pay for publish
ing them - ; Secondly, the people’s curiosi
ity may be gratified, and Thirdly, as “ Croa
ker,** has neither wealth nor reputation,!
and as the subject is important enough to
display his talents, should he have any, he
imay gain both.
I shall not answer nor contradict “ Croa
keh;” and should he at any time be at a
loss to make up a good story, if be will
call upon me personally, I will assist him.
Therefore you are hereby authorized (should
the personality relate to myself, Hamburg,
I the Bank of Hamburg, Red marks, and
| Black marks) to publish as many Epistles
or Books as be may think proper to write,
and you to print.

A PRESENT FOR BOLIVAR.
We understand that a present is prepar
ing in this city, intended for the Liberator
Bolivar, and that an opportunity will be
sought of confiding it to the care of the
Colombian Minister, through the honored
medium of our Nation’s Guest, during his
now shortly expected and last visit to the
Seat of Government,
This compliment to worth, whicU> though
so distant from us, is not the less' revered,
will consist of two articles—A Medal,
which was given by the city of Williams
burg, the ancient capital of Virginia, to the
ancestor of the present donor, the lady of
Washington, in commemoration of the vir
tues and services of her illustrious husband,
in the war of independence. The medal is
of the purest gold, weighing upwards of an
ounce, and has engraved, on one side, the
Genius of American Liberty, represented
by Wisdom and Valor; legend, “ Virtute
et Lahore flore.nl Respublicß.** City of
Williamsburg. On the reverse is seen an
armed Warrior, who has thrown aside his
shield, and is in the act of piercing with a
lance a crowned Lion, which rushes to de
stroy him. Above the Warrior appears the
American Constellation of Thirteen Stars,
with (lie legend “ In hoc signo vinces ” —
Inscription on the reverse, “En dal Fir
ginia primum .”
There is added to this interesting memo
rial, a portrait of the great Chief, largest size
miniature, executed by the celebrated Field, i
in his best style, from a painting by Stuart. 1
In the back of the picture is enclosed a lock !
of the Patriarch’s hair, of the same descrip
tion as that now worn in the ring of the es
timable Lafayette, and encircled by a wreath
of the Roman laurel, the legend simply—
“ Jiuctoris Libertalis Jlmericunce in Septcn
trione hanc imaginem dut Filins ejus adopta

The following letter will be sent to the
Hero of the South :
“Liiikuatok—An American, of the family ol
Mount Vernon, presents to you, by the honored
lisnd.sol the last ot the Generals of the Army ol
North American Independence, the venerable, the
good Lafayette, a Medal commemorative ot lb.
worth and tame of the most truly gieut and glon
nusof men, the gift of die ancient Capital ot his f
native State, and preserved in tiis family -ince the
War of the Revolution. Acoomp toying this memo
rial, is a Portrait of the great Chief, enclosing a
lock of his hair.
Accept, Liberator, these offering', made to your
virtues, and to the illustrious services you have
rendered to your country and the cause ot man
kind. Let them be preserved among Hie aichivi s
of South American Liberty, that they may com
mand the veneration of ages yet to come, and w h
die interesting relcs ot their chiefs, receive he (
homage of all the Americans, wh > with pure an
riu nphant acclaim hail you as B divar, Uie Ue.
iiverer, the Washingto i of the South ’’
On tire application of the legends on the
Medals to the South American Republics,
we would observe, that wisdom and valor
must always be grand essentials with every t
people who struggle to throw off the yoke ol
oppression, to obtain the natural rights of s
mankind. The Constellation of American 1
Glory will appear to the oppressed like the ,
Cross of Constantine in the Heavens, for
bidding despair, and inspiring the hope and
belief that 'tn hoc signo vinces .’ And where,
is with our South American brethren, the
struggle is over, the boon obtained, and a.
regenerate people are about to enter on the
grand experiment of self-government, we
may truly and feelingly say to them, Mint, ‘by
Virtue and Industry will Republics flourish.’

Lafayelte*s Land. —Col.. McKee, who
was deputised to select a township of land j
lur Gen. Lafayette, has fixed upon town-i
ship N i. 1 North, in range No. 1 East: which
adjoins Tallahassee. This township is con-l.
sidered to be one of the best in the Terri-1
tory, and its worth is estimated at from 150
to 200,000 dollars. We understand that it
is probable that the General will dispose of
one half, say every other section.
Middletown, (Conn.) June 29.
Another Marriage of an Indian with a
White Girl contemplated. —Our readers will
recollect, that about a year ago, a mar
riage took place bet ween an Indian Chief,
who had attended the Foreign Missionary
School at Cornwall, and a white girl.
Most of the papers spoke of it in terms
of decided disapprobation. The Agents
of the School, at the head of whom is
the Rev. £)r. Beecher, of Litchfield,
published a report, under date of the ITth
inst. in which they state, that a negotia
tion for a marriage has been carried on for
some time past between Elias Boudinot, a
young Cherokee, and Harriet 11. Gold of
the village of Cornwall, and that there is
now a settled engagement between the par
ties. The object of the publication is, to
j declare their “ unqualified disapprobation
of such connexipn.** And they regard the
conduct of those who aided or assisted in
this negociatiou as highly “ criminal.”
They say that additional restrictions have
been adopted, to protect the interests of the
School, and of the community as connected
, with it.
[ In Beaufort, South-Daroliua, on the ‘J.Jd of May last, affe-a
lon-* and painful indisposition. the Rev. MASON L WEEMS,
» of Dumfries, Va well known as the author of the Life of
Washington, and various other popular works, which have pass
1 ed through numerous editions, and have had a most extensive
circulation.—He was a man of very considerable attainments,
both as a scholar, a physician and divine. His philanthropy
and benevolence were unbounded. Early in life he liberated
b:s patrimonial slaves, from conscientious motives, and volunta
rily commenced a career of incessant bodily toil, to dissemin
ate moral and religious books in various remote ami destitute
portions of the country. From Pennsylvania to the frontiers of
Georgia was the principal theatre of his indefatigable labors,
and it is supposed on good authority, that in the course of his life
he has been instrumental in circulating nearly a million of copies
of the scriptures and other valuable works.—That in this labori
ous calling be was principally actuated by an expanded philan
thropy, is proved by his entire mglectof the means of accumu
lating a large fortune and dying in comparative poverty. His
very eccentricities, for tailings they could not be called, were
the eccentricities of genius and benevolence. He finally fell a
martyr to bis arduous exertions to do good, and died in the full
enjoyment of faith, and a blessed hope of immortality, leaving
behind him a numerous and afflicted family.
