are the be*l fitted vîrfts for naturalization in the
U. States. We are advised, on good authority,
that in the State of Pennsylvania, on the West
ern bank of the Monongahela, a very conside
rable number of Vineyards, some of a large ex
tent, have succeeded so well as to yield a hand
some profit for the wine made. They are
likewise reared by the German emigrants.
Of the Hungarian wines, it is the peculiar
property, they can be easily kept without bran
dy. for any length of time, with a steady im- 1
provement of quality ; for this purpose, they
are put into casks, previously cleaned in a most
careful manner, which are deposited in a cool
cellar or vault. They are fit for use the se
cond year, but are generally improved by being
kept lor two or three years longer.
We are promised with a full statement of
the situation of these interesting establish
ments, which shall be communicated to the
public the moment it is received.
The importance of this information will fully
speak for itself. If this inestimable plant ran
be so successfully reared in this country, as to
yield a plentiful supply of good wine for our
consumption, the advantages will be incalcula
ble. The instance of France, indisputably the
best wine country in the world, proves how in
timately connected the sobriety ol our common
people is with the general command of this
pleasant beverage at a reasonable price; and
we must admit, however reluctantly, that the
greatest desideratum among us is an effectual
substitute for and antidote to the prodigal con
sumption of whiskey, which is at this moment
more actively employed in the demoralization
of our citizens, than, perhaps, all the other
causes of the corruption of manners. The ex
perience of other nations has shewn that the
juice of the grape, when cheap, is infinitely
preferred to any other liquor.
It is no mean additional consideration that
the genera! cultivation of the grape w ill extend
our field of agricultural employment, by adding
a new product to those at present raised, and it
will be the means of bringing into value a large
portion of land, now either abandoned to total
neglect, or used to very little profit.
Nor should the beamy with which this spe
cies of cultivation adorns a country be consi
dered altogether unimpoitniit, as it necessarily
tends to make us more conttti'ed with, if not
proud of our country, and really, in a variety
of ways, increases that species of enjoyment,
which is certainly among the most innocent
and virtuous known to the human heait.
if to all these motives be superudded the im
mense saving that will accrue from making our
own wine, instead of importing it, and the po
litical benefit of rendering ourselves as indepen
dent of the foreign world as possible, it will be
generally acknowledged that this object is
scarcely inferior in importance to any which
can be named. Already with a population of
seven millions, and with oui frugal habits, v.e
consume foreign wines ai d brandies to the a
mount ol five millions of dollars. In 50 years
•we shall h ive reached a population of at least
30,000.000, when our demand for this beve
rage will cost us more than twenty millions of

Federalism, like Achilles of old, seems
to have but one vulnerable part; and that is
the part of England. This is the solitary
fibre by which you can reach the grand fe
deral sensorium.
Abuse the President of the U. Statss as
much as you please; insult every officer of
government, civil and military, from J. Q.
Adams and Armstrong to the lowest civil
officer, and from gen. Wilkinson to a Cor
poral in the army, and you will not hear a
lisp of displeasure from the leaders of what
called federalism. But dare to venture a
disrespectful hint towards his Britannic
■Majesty's Minister, Jackson, and federal
ism is convulsed with wrath; then it is that
we hear of the decency and decorum which
should govern our dealings with public cha
racters. The newspaper publications re
specting Mr. Jackson, say the federal lead
ers, is enough to disgrace our country for
ever; yet they can see no disgrace in the
foul and vulgar abuse which has for years
been discharged against the rulers of our
country 1
When the President of the U. S. is pub

it is uncertain whether these nations will
give us honorable satisfaction, or adduisnl.t

While the claws of the lion are fastened

that his power will he subdued, or transfer

We have been disappointed in our returns
from Sussex All we have heard of the result
of the election in that county is—that the Fe
deral ticket carried by a majority of about 200 ;
and as tins is mere verbal information, we can
not vouch for its correctness.
We have not yet seen the entire official
returns ; but no doubt remains that this re
spectable state is now completely democra
tic. As far as our returns from the differ
ent counties have been received, says the
Baltimore American of Monday, the Re
publicans have a majoaity of eight in the
house of delegates. Opposition being so
completely pul down at the late election,
and so much money spent uselessly and dis
gracefully by its votaries, it will not attempt
to raise its crest for years to come. Ma
