will recollcct it as belonging to the history of that
about the thirtieth ballot in the Presi­
dential contest, when J. A. Bayaid, Esq. (a lead
ing federalist,) called on Mr. Jefferson, and made
a proposition nearly in the following words:—Sir,
if you will pledge yourself to adopt three cardinal
point* of federal policy, you can be elected in an
hour (the three rardinal points were—1st to re
tain the federalists in office 2d, build up a Navy

Jefferson replied: I trust Sir, that my character
Is lufficiently known to my fellow citizens, by that
lam willing to stand or fall, and shall not go into
the office of President under conditions with any
man or set of men.—After this the balloting con
tinued five or six times, when, (as history records
jt,) a member of the Vermont Delegation with
drew, and there were on the last ballot, 10 States
for Mr. Jefferson, 4 for Mr. Burr, and two blanks—
an that Mr. Jefferson did not rccrit a federal vote,
MM did Mr. Burr receive a republican vote. At that
time no unprejudiced person believed that Mr.
J«ffereonmade term* with the federal party a re
view of tbe moral and political integrity of his life,
the sacrifices of ease and fortune he made for his
country's liberties, would seem a sufficient refuta

tdNNllliAL AFFECTION.—A gentleman who in
the way of money matters was what the world
call* "close," lately left this region on a visit to
Texas. Previous to leaving, however, he found
that his own comfort and that of his favorite nag,
which had served him long and faithfully, would
be promoted by thb purchase of a new saddle. As
all good husbands should, our friend did nothing
rashly, and he accordingly consulted hit better

desideratum. It was concloried thai Articles wer*

From the New Orleans Bulletin of the 7th ult.
W* are happy to inform our readers that the pas
sengers and crews of the American schrs, Julius
Cfesar and Champ ion, lately imprisoned at Meta
rnoras, and for whose safety so many fears were a
broad, arrived in this city last evening by the schr.
Holen, direct from that port, the most of whom
are in good health and spirits —having been liber
ated by an express order from tho city of Mexico
Being "once clear from a loathsome prison, they
immediately ejnbarked, leaving, however, their
vessel and property still in detention.—Their lib
eration was not, has been reported, owirtg to the
arrival of Commodore Dallas, whose fleet, at the
time of the Helen's departure, had not, as yet, ar
rived off the coast, but would rather appear to have
resulted from the private order received from the
seat of (joveminBiu. The passengers speak of hav
ing leceived very bad treatment during their im
prisonment, especially in being neady starved.
W e have not been able to collect any other autMf*
tic particulars of the case bM these, yi Iare,
however, of no^onsequence, ae w- vxpltt in the

IM departure all was quiet at Meta-
morao ?T?h little doing in the way of business,
ind money very scarce. Several American vessels
were in the harbor, where also lay the Mexican
armed schrs. liravo and Gen Teran. The army,
to the number of two thousand men, were resting
quietly in their qaarters, without any appearance
of being about to resume hostilities.
RENcoNTRfc.—TheIndianianof the 10th inst.
says, last Thursday, as the steamer was cast
ing off from her moorings at Louisville, for
New Orleans, an aflair of rather a ludicrous
nature transpired: The facts, as we learn them
from a gentleman present, were about these:—
Orders nad been given by the mate to one of
the hands to loose a line, which not being done
as promptly as he conceived it might have
been, came up to one of the deck passengers,
a stout lump of an Irishman, by the way, who
he mistook for a hand belonging to the boat,
and with a variety of oaths and imprecations,
for which such characters are notorious, un
dertook to knock the Irishman down, Pat notj
relishing thecompliments that were being paid
him, retorted, and retreated, with his fist and
his face to the enemy, as far as the guard
would permit.—-Here the mate closed in, was
about to consign poor Pat to the bottom of the
Ohio. "Not so fa9t, honey,' said he, 'for faith
if 1 must go, it's ye'r ugly self that must come
wid me.' And taking the mate by the collar
with both hands, overboard they went togeth

bat doubtful whether either would rise again,
however, they showed their heads a

each again eeme up but to see his
descend. Wnile this was passing, some
of the hands on the boat had jumped overbard,
to assist the mate in his sore dilemma. Pat
was nearing the shore, .with tn iron grasp of
his victim and soon ss he got a footing, the
way he paid ot the i—l, as oar informant
expresses it, ms s eMrtio* to Hooeiera.1 The
mate, after a bit, respited land, and his eus
tomer,' as he teriteed him, sad to it they went,
pell mell.—The eontest, continues our inform
ant, was manftilly contested but the mate,
with tbe assistance of his men, had rendered
poor Pat sans coat, shirt, pantaloons, sansev
erything, when the bystanders interfered, and
the fight became general. The billigjerents

of anthracite coal is worth two cords

Spanish Girls at Treveno.—When
ever I was on apicquet at the bill top,
used to pass the time in observing
the movement of the pasant girls em
ployed in carrying up hods of mortar
to the redoubt. None were above 20
years of age, and several of them stri
kingly handsome, with fine olive car
nation complexions and large sparkling
eyes, shaded by long, dark, and pencil
led eyebrows. It certainly moved my
heart to compassion to see them filling
the hods with their delicate fingers and
toiling up the steep ascent with a slow
but elastic step. Nevertheless they
appeared to work, and aware of the
fruitlessness of resistance, submitted to
it with the greatest cheerfulness, ever
and anon startlingthe mountain echoes
with merry peals of merry laughter.—
Sometimes one would pause and, resting
|he hod on her knee, and looking up
with an air of good humored vexation,
say, 'Nucha trabajo, proprecita (much
work, poor little thing,) until disturbed
by the clamorous demand of the Span
ish sergeant for barro, barro (mortar.)
Occasionally, after employing their
iM
hods, two or three gathered together in
a
gossipping with one another, or
with the Spanish soldiers at work, and
on the first approach of the sergeant,
would start off to their duty with the
speed of lightning, joking him on his
severitv
as they passed. At sunset,
when the
from the town sounded
a cessation of labor, the signal was
hailed with wild shouts of delight, that
mockod the clearness of the notes float
ing up the
valley,
and, throwing aside
their implements, they darted down
the mountain side with screams of
laughter, playing such joyous gambols
by the way as were a pleasure to^be

MADISON.
We are happy in being able to in

will make it rank, before the close of

Acting Commissioner for the erection
of the Capitol, left this place on Wed

forty men—nearly all of womon are
mechanics—together with somefifteen

commodious public house will first be
erected by Mr. Bird, which will be
sufficiently large to accommodate sixty
guests. The canal from the Fourth to
the Third lake is to be made forth
with and when completed it will afford
water power sufficient to propel all the
machinery that will ever be required
at the place. A saw mill of the first
class is to be put in operation upon the
canal the present season. The Capitol
is to be be commenced in the course of
a few weeks, and from an examination
of the plan upon whicii it is intended
to be built, we think it will be an edi

beautiful, and intrinsically wealthy

about to leave Du Buque for a short
time, I respectfully request all those who are
In arrears to me, to come forward aud make imme
diate payment, and those having claims against
me, will please present them for settlement.
Upon several occasions, heretofore, when busi
ness called me from home, it was asserted that I had
runaway. These assertions I pronounce to be pal
pable falsehoods, and the authors of them con
temptible, infatuated calumniators. There has, as
yet, been no occasion for my running away, and
if honest industry and perseveiance can avail any
thing, I apprehend there never will be such a cause.
The persons who made the statement, knew it to
be fiilse, and their only object was to injure my
character—they are welcome to all the benefits
which will result to them from it.
