And stand, and stare, admiring still the more,
Till, gathering up the reins, the majesty
Passed on, with head erect!
Thus, day by day,
lie rode, and made a pleasure of his task,
And when the uight of Saturday arrived,
Ho met his comrades where tho curtains red
Promised good entertainment, royally
Raising bis glass, and drinking to " the Prestl"
" Kings may be blest, but Tam was glorious!" Still,
More glorious New-year's day, when patrons all
Showered bright silver!
And the boy's on foot!
The son of such a sire! Alas! alas!
But why recall the past ? 'Tis now a dream;
Let it sink back to darkness. Wherefore now
Pity the boy because ho cannot ride?
Have I not seen, in these degenerate days,
Editors walking?

Hon. A. H. H. Stnart and tlie Adminis
A series of articles have appeared in your
paper during tho last week, commencing with the
fifth instant, against Mr. Fillmore, the Admin
istration generally, but more particularly against
A. H. H. Stuart, Secretary of the Interior.
Tho writers profess to be Whigs of the strict
est and most ultra sect, from the zeal with which
they urge tho removal of Democrats, and the
thirsty a?xiety manifested to enjoy this first
Whig victory iu " twenty years." Their prin
ciples appear to be few: just one ? personal
iuteretst; or, as Randolph would say, seven.
Passing over, as small matters, those great prin
ciples which Mr. Fillmore has laid down in his
message, and which have been again and again
promulgated by himself and his Cabinet, and, as
far as 1 am informed, most faithfully adhere to,
they linger around the " flesh-pots" and com
plain of tho disposition of patronage. They
evidently would carry tho " purse," and follow
the multitude with zeal, while there is "bread."
It is doubtful which of two noted characters in
ancient history one of the writers, at least, is
most anxious to emulate?Judas or Cerberus.
Perhaps it would be near the truth to say, there
is a harmonious blending of the two.
"Cui vates, harm re videns Jam col la colubris,
MrlU soporatam et medicalis frugibus offam
Not content with general animadversion, grave
and specific charges have been made, which, if
true, present this Administration to the people
;uj totally unworthy of public confidence. This
" naturally" excites surprise. From the infor
mation 1 have been able to gather from the
press of both parties, and from every part of
the country, my impression is, that seldom has
an Administration enjoyed so large a share of
the public confidence, for its honest, firm, mod
erate, prudent and patriotic course, in the va
rious trying scenes through which we have
recently passed.
But, to be more particular, and to avoid the
charge of the least misrepresentation, I go to
the text. Your correspondent "Commentator,"
(who is evidently the Ajax Telemon,i of July
the 7th, charges the Cabinet, or Administra
tion, (for Mr. Fillmore has recently and re
peatedly assured the country that there is per
fect agreement between himself and Cabinet,)
" with having forgotten the party which made
them what they are;" with "having neglected
the welfare of the Whig party;" with "sad
dling the Whig party, under the ' Fillmore Ad
ministration,' with a variety of fraudulent
claims." " Inquirer," of the 9tb, charges Mr.
Fillmore and Mr. Stuart with a desire to "get
rid of the Commissioner of Patents, but will
not do so from a pusillanimous fear of Seward,
Weed, and Greeley." Strange conduct this to
wards a " dependant."
These, I think, especially the last, arc seri
ous charges; and, if true, highly dishonorable
to the chief magistrate and Mr. 8tuart. But
you, under the editorial head, and with the
use of the pronoun " we," make equally grave
charges. You tell the country, in your pa
per of the 5th, " that the bowic knifo, as we
have heretofore remarked, has been drawn in
the departments." "Crimination and recrimi
nation have arisen;" "Ostracism has been
proclaimed ;" and, speaking as the organ of
some one, you add, " The interested desire to
test the matter." In your paper of the l!2th
you say, " But this one thing wo do know,
that in high places there are great heart-burn
ings, jealousies, and bickerings." This cer
tainly is news. If true, it is somewhat singu
lar that the leading journals of the opposing
party have failed to scent this " fair game" in
tho breeze; and that up to this very moment
they have not noticed these announcements.
There was every reason to suppose that there
was perfeot unanimity in tho Cabinet. But,
you doubtless possess sources of information "f
which the public arc not aware ; and 1 had un
til this moment forgotten tho announcement of
the 6th July, that, " in the absence of the Presi
dent and Cabinet, the affairs of State devolved
upon us" (you.)
But you will agree with me that these are
grave charges, coming from Whig correspond
ents, in a paper edited by a Whig, and sus
tained mainly I suppose by Whig patron
But while Commentator aud Inquirer strike
at the highest game, in the person of the Presi
dent of the United States, his main attacks,
aided by yourself and Anstides, are agaiust the
Secretary of the Interior, lie is charged by
yourself and others with wantonly insulting the
eight hundred geutlemen who held office by his
appointment, by the use of a term or a single
word. It is unnecessary to quote your lan
guage. This one string is touched again and
again, to twang sweet music for the popular ear,
by the " argumentum ad verbum." You evi
dently think there is force aud charm in a word.
He is charged, in the second place, with setting
up an improper teBt of qualification for appoint
ment to office, as announced in his Richmond
speech, which 1 believe has not yet appeared iu
your columns. Of this, in your paper of the l
9th, you say: " We by no means approve of the
new standard of qualifications for the olficeB
under the Qeneral Government."
He is charged, in the third plact, by implica
tion at least, iu the communication of Commen
tator and Inquirer, with falsehood. And lastly,
in connexion with Mr. Kennedy, with fraud
and peculation, or a useless expenditure of the
public money.
That Mr. Stuart should be selected as the
favorite target at which to fire, even through the
person of the Chief Magistrate, is not surpris
ing. He, is a growing man. There are un
erring indications, from various parts of the
country, that few men of his age enjoy a larger
share of public confidence. Ho is- passing
through the ordeal which all public men must
pass who will do right. The remark of Aristides
is not true, " that he was the resident of a State
which cared to do but little for him." That
State for twenty years has been Democratic;
and of course a Whig could not reach the
highest offices in her gift. But for few as
young men have the people done bo much,
and few have bo filled public expectation.
It is truo he was rejected as a candidate for
the present convention. But this was an honor.
He would not throw himself into the popular
current, preferring the " honor which comes
after to that which goes before." It was the
result of his stern independence; of his conser
vatism ; of his resistance of popular ultraisms ;
of his desire, along with Marshal, Story, Taney,
Chambers, and other bright names, to preserve
the judicial ermine pure from the dust and filth
of popular commotions; aud time will justify
his wisdom. That bis defeat was not dishonor
able, his immediate appointment as Secretary
of the Interior by the Executive and unanimous
I Senate is " some" proof.
I take great pleasure in defending such a
man. Let not Commentator hurl "hireling" in
my teeth. I do not speak "by authority." The
best authority is truth. The denial of any
charge "by authority," where there is proof of
its justness, would only give force to the accu
sation. The only authority, without proof, or
even its semblance, is the desire which all good
men should feel to vindicate the injured. In
what I shall say in future communications, I
shall appeal only to facts, to truth, and to
I propose, in accordance with your general
invitation, in three or four short articles, to cx
amiue these charges. T.
Wo will reply to our correspondent by saying,
firstly, that we have not avowed ourselves
' Whigs, our paper a Whig paper, nor appealed
to Whigs for support; and, secondly, that we
have never uttered a syllable in disparagement
of Mr. Fillmore, but many in praise of him as
a gentleman, a statesman, and a patriot. All
other points may pass for the present.
The Blocks of Stone for the Monument.
Among the blocks of stone recently received,
to bo deposited in the Washington National
Monument, is one of unstained and flawless ,
granite, six feet square and fourteen inches j
thick, weighing three tons, and presented by |
the Legislature of Massachusetts. In a circle ,
in front is sculptured in bold relief the coat of
arms of the State, vii: an Indian chief, with a
bow in his right hand and an arrow in his left, ,
and above a naked arm held in the act of .
striking, and below a scroll beariug the motto, j
Enst petit placidam, sub libertale quietent. On the j
base, in largo characters, is the name of the ,
State. It was executed by T. & W. Smith, who
were employed exactly one year in getting out
the block and finishing the figures, &c. The
Legislative committee of both branches cele- ]
brated the completion of the work by a dinner.
Another stono is preparing to be sent to the
Monument by the citizens of Boston. It is a
plrin piece of Rockport granite, about three
and a half by four feet, and about twelve inches
thick. The surface is polished, and in an ob
long scroll is cut the city seal in raised letters,
with the motto. Stent patribus sit J)eu* nobis,
Civitatis rtgimine donala, A. D. 1822, in the
outer circle, and in the centre, Bostoniae condtta,
A. D. 1630.
The stone presented on the 4th inst. by the
Sons of Temperance of Pennsylvania is a beau
tiful block of pure whit? marble, worthy of the
place in which it is to be deposited, and credi
table to the association by whom it has been
Perhaps the most beautiful specimen of mar
ble which has yet been sent to the Monument is
a block from Hawkins county, Tennessee. This
marble is colored reddish brown, and suscepti
ble of an exquisite polish. The material is of a
rare color and quality, and would make most i
beautiful mantelpieces and other ornaments for
This, and other blocks which have been re
ceived from time to time, are certainly hand
some additions to the Monument, aud exhibit a
commendable and patriotic feeling on the part
of the States, corporations and associations by
which they have been presented, and an evi
dence of their regard, affection and gratitude,
for th?* illustrious patriot in whose honor the
great structure in which these stones ?ve to be
placed is now rising to the clouds. Put I would
respectfully suggest that the sums given for
some of those blocks?those, for instance, from
New York and Massachusetts--would carry up
the obelisk six feet at least, if they had been
ordered to be prepared here, and the surplus
transferred to the funds of the society, to b<
employed in the construction of the Monument.
T , those who may be desirous of ascending
to the top of the Monument, now at an eleva- j
tion of niuetv feet, 1 am pleased to be able to
state, that the Board of Managers have caused a
neat and substantial car, which will accommo
date eight persons, to be constructed, to convey
them up in safety, from which, even now, a
splendid prospect is presented. At Pr?>en ,

Messrs. Editor#: There are not u few in'
tins vicinity who feeJ that the sentence puuaed
upon Gen. Talcott is harsh, and in fact not sus
tained by the evidence. The result reached hy
the Court-Martial seems to rest upon what may

positive testimony. After reading that tcsti

Of this 1 am fully convinced, that no jury of
unprejudiced men would have rendered a virdiet

this conviction strengthens also my opinion

posed to civil and humane institutions, is irreiru- '

But I sincerely hope that the friends of Gen.

[ it now does. And if a verdiot (which, though
sanctioned by the highest authority, is yet repu
diated by nine-tenths of impartial readers)
may not be set aside, yet I trust a further hear
ing will be given in a quarter from which some
reparation may come to an injured man I
speak this without party feeling, for I am not
a party man, but a plain citizen. Nor would I
be understood as reflecting upon our worthy
i resident; a false coloring given to appearances
may warp any man's judgment?and this I con
ceive to be the case in the present instance.
Messrs. Editors : A vulgar jest, attributed
to your demi-god, Mr. Secretary Corwin, has
been going the round of the papers. He told
it seems, some of the clerks in bis Department'
(who, he judged, pretended to be sick,) that
within a certain time they must either die, or
yet we//, or resign. Now, beside the covert
blasphemy of such a speech?about which I
shall say nothing?there are two topics of ani
madversion to which I would call your atten
tion and hia.
Hrst. At the very time Mr. Curwin is repre
sented to have issued his sanative decree, (in
which lie assumed the place of Omnipotence,
and to which he attributes a sovereign power )
Mr. Corwin was himself kept from the TrefiMir'y
Department by " serious indisposition." Charity
would lead us to suppose that such indisposi
tion was not feigned, in order to escape the
perplexities of a new situation, or the solicita
tions of office-seekers?causes to which the in
disposition was attributed. Vet I hope the
world of clerks will always have a little more
respect for IIeu\eu, and a good deal more sym
pathy for the afflicted?a sympathy which I
can testify they exhibited when they believed
(simple folks were they !) that Mr. Corwin was
really sick?than, if similar circumstances occur,
to issue a decree ho " must either die or re
Second. WLiie 1 am neither a clerk nor be
holden to the Treasury in any way for its pap,
as Mr. Corwin is, I feel indignant at the thought
that worthy gentlemen, whose word and whose
honor, though they be clerks, are just as relia
ble as Mr. Cor win's, or any other man's, should
->o treated by Air. C. with such unnecessary
| and wanton contempt. Did Mr. C. by his taunts
mean to convey the idea that the gentlemen in
the Ireasury Department are guilty of sham
ming sickness to evade their duties ? It is his
business, it there be such, to remove them and
give their places to others; but far l'rom his
duty or becoming his station to in-ult a large
class of honorable men, whose offices happeti to
be at his disposal, because of a few favorite* of
the great, who have been put into office while
deficient in moral principle. Let Mr. Corwin
visit every desk ; let him inspect the work of
each clerk, personally; let him require and re
ceive the reports of the chief clerk in each De
partment, (if he can ever believe that they will
not sham,) and let him remove from office those
who aro unworthy, and give their places to
such as are deserving, but let not Mr. Cor
win. for his own dignity's sake, condescend,
even in stump speeches, to insult those who
are as truly gentlemen as himself, who, guided
by christian principle, scorn a lie and spurn tho
j thought of shamming sickness. No Clkric.
