Aaron Burr in Washington
When Thomas Jefferson stepped out of
the chair of President of the Senate into
that of President of the United States
Aaron Burr took the chair of President of
the Senate
It will be remembered that in the vote for
President there was a tie lietween Thomas
Jefferson and Aaron Burr each receiving
73 votes This was said to hi the result i
of dishonorable manuvering The tie threw
the election into the House of Representa
tives The country was wild with excite
ment Party 1 ines had liegun to formulate
and by the time of the third Presidential
election they were clearly defined through
out the Union under the name of Federalist
and Republican
Washington Hamilton Jay Pickering
Marshall were among the Federalists
Jefferson Burr George Clinton Madison
were in the other party
The tie was known in the country the
middle of December The House voted
upon it the middle of February During
these GO days Jefferson was in Washington
Hamilton in Xew York and Burr was at
home in Albany The result of the vote
made Jefferson President and Burr Vice
President lie having received the next
highest vote
The 4th of March was a day of great re
joicing Processions orations and ban
quets in the larger cities and towns testi
fied to the public joy and peace reigned
once more
On the day of President Jeffersons
inauguration the true Republican style
which is recorded to have prevailed was the
only one possible in a city where slush was j

monarch and mud king It must have
taken sometime for the streets of Washing
ton to have become passable for Presi
dent Jeffersons four-in-hand to have
made any headway even under the superb
guidance of Jack Eppes who liad paid
1200 for these Republican horses that
stalled in the mud in old Virginia
But Mr Jefferson appeared at the door
cf the Senate Chamber on time whereupon
Vice President Burr who had already
taken the oath of office arose from his chair
and took his 6eat on the right Chief Justice
Marshall who administered the oath sat
on the left President Adams had left
the city on an early stage
The up-to-date manner of addressing
Congress sounds very formal to day hen
Mr Jefferson arose he said Fellow-citizens
of the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives Gentlemen of the Senate
of the House of Representatives and Gen
tlemen of tho Senate and House of Repre
After this formal opening he proceeded j
in an easy manner to deliver his address
and after these ceremonies were over and
the President had returned to the Ex
ecutive Mansion the Senate formed a pro
cession and marched to the Presidents
TTnifca qnif ilirnrrli tlio Priaiflistlt nf IllA
Senate Aaron Burr the thanks of the body
were given forhistimelyaddress
In the evening President Jefferson and
Vice President Burr received the con
gratulations of friends at the Presidential
On the Cth of March President Jefferson
wrote to John Dickinson The storm
tlirough which we have passed has lecn
tremendous indeed Tho tough sides of
our bark liave been thoroughly tried Her
strength lias stood the waves into which
nhewas steered with a view to sink her
We shall put her on her Republican tack
and she will show by the beauty of her
motion the skill of her builders
In tho new Cabinet Mr Madison was
Secretary of State
Jefferson had decided that the American
Court should lie like its Government
cliaracterizcd by simplicity and dignity
As much as Mr Jefferson desired to ignore
the question of ceremony he was obliged
to give attention to official affairs of this
kind and there is to day a canon of etiouct
formulated by him
It wasquite impossible for Jefferson after
living at the French Court in the profligate
age of Napoleon not to acquire a taste for
the elegancies of Parisian society and he
gradually drifted away from the campaign
hhiboleth of Jefferson simplicityinto pre
tentious surroundings Many additions
In the way of furnishings were made to the
White House Mrs Madibon was always
ready to assist the President in matters
of etiquct and entertainment
A story is told that at this time all the
barbers were tedcralists because the lead
era of that party in Congress wore powdered
and long ques which were dressed of
course every day The Republicans wore
short liair or small queues tied up carefully
with a ribbon
One day a barber who was shaving a
Senator suddenly burst out against the
nomination of Madison whoe name was
in the air for the next Presidency for the
Republican party
What Presidents we might lure sir
ho said Look at Dagget of Connecticut
and Stockton of New Jersey with ques as
big as your wrist and powdered every dav
like real gentlemen as they are But this
little Jim Madison with a que no bigger
than a pipe stem sir it is enough to make
a man foreswear his country
Mr Madison having leen appointed
Secretary of State by Thomas Jefferson
I moved to Washington in April 1801 As
i wo have before stated tho White House
was separated from the Capitol by a ntarsb
and was surrounded by the debris ttf un
finished buildings Thick woods with
ojienings here and there where a house
could be seen formed the setting or the
palatial home
While the new comers brought the man
ners and customs of their respective States
the original land proprietors retained their
rural residences and habits of living
There were the Madisons from Virginia
the Gallatins from Pennsylvania Gen
Dearborn from Massachusetts and Robert
Smith of Maryland a heterogeneous Jiuass
of customs and fashions thrown together
It will be remembered that Burr lielonged
to the faction and used
his power to poison the mind of the public
against the military talent of Washington
In 17S2 Burr married Mrs Provost the
widow of a British officer He was active
in the campaign of 1S00 and the success of
the Republicans in New York was at
tributed to his efforts When the voting
was brought into the Electoral College and
each received the samo number and it was
tlirown into the House most of the Federal
members voted for Burr which made him
Vice President Ho thus lost prestige in
the Republican party by loaning his name
to the Federalists and uniting with the
opposing party for the sake of defeating the
candidate of his party it dissolved his con
nection with the Republican party and de
stroyed his political influonce
Iii the Summer of 1S01 tho country was
shocked by the news that Vice President
Burr had killed Alexander Hamilton in a
duel Mr Burr saw that Mr Jefferson
would be the candidate for re election for tho
second term and that he was to bo left out
of the reckoning He had his eyo on the
Presidency and was determined not to be
baffled Therefore while Vice President
he became a candidate for Governor of New
York hoping at the close of Jeffersons
second term he would pass to the Presi
dency Hamiltons powerful influence in
New York defeated Burrs election and all
hoDes of the Presidency vanished From
that day Burr determined to make way witTT
tne man wno nau irusiraieu nis nupes
The challenge was gi on When face to face
Hamilton refused to fire and Burr got in
his deadly work He fled from popular
indignation and went South
Upon the convening of Congress he took
his seat in the Senate and presided over its
meeting until the seasion was closed He
addressed the Senate for the last time
March 2 1805
It is chronicled that when he closed he
had such power over men that the whole
Senate was in tears
At tho Presidents on tho following Mon
day two Senators were relating the circum
stance to a circle assembled One said ho
wished the tradition might be preserved
as one of the most extraordinary events he
had ever witnessed Another said ho
could give no idea how long his ad dress was
It mignt nave Been an nour ana n migni
have been but a moment when he came to
his senses he seemed to have awakened out
of a trance
During this session there are records of
meetings leing held with certain men tho
nature of which the public knew nothing
It is onlj known that when Aaron Burr
walked out of the Senate of the Tnited
States lie made for the West He took a
boat at Pittsburg and floated down the
Ohio After traveling through several
States he took up his residence with an
Irish exile named Herman Bleiinerhasset
who had laid out an estate and built a
mansion on an island in the Ohio
On our research we camo across the last
letter Aaron Burr wrote to his daughter
Theodosia before ho bade farewell to
Washington He said On the 13th I
shall leave for Philadelphia The plan of
Summer derations is to go Irom Phila
delphia to Fort Pitt Pittsburg thence
tnrougn me ftiaies eacn siue oi me unio
I have rnst received a message irom the
President informing mo that Dr Brown
may have tho office of Secretary to the
Governor of Louisiana which means the
upper district whereof bt Louis is tho
capital St Louis Is on the banks of
the Mississippi 20 miles below tho mouth
of the Missouri It contains about 200
houses and somo very wealthy people
Tho inhabitants are French and retain the
French manners of the last century The
salary of the Secretary is 800 It can lx
made contingencies worth twice that
Dr Brown was one of those who was fre
quently with tho Burr contingency in
Washington as was Wilkinson who turned
un in New Orleans
It is hardly necessary to go over Burrs
life in ew urieans nut it is well Known the
men and measures he tried to have adopted
there to further his scheme and perfect his
plans for a dictatorship in the southwest
One incident in history tliat was related

one is familiar with Edward Everett Hales
Man Without a Country After this
story had found its place in the hearts of
Americans Mr Hale heard enough of
another incident to take himself South and
for some weeks was the guest of Mr Miner
a rich sugar planter Tho story as he
heard it then for the first time is the same
as related to mo by tho daughter of the
owner of this sugar plantation
It wasduringtliedaysof Burrs treason
able scheme before his real intentions were
known that ho was the guest of this loyal
planter With his party wasacaptivating

In true Southern hospitality tho party were

As time passed Mr Burr thought the
propitious timo had come to make his busi
ness known to the planter and invito him
into the scheme The planter indignantly
declined and made them feel that his hospi
tality and loyalty had been abused by
planning a scheme under his roof which
was against the peace and happiness of his

to carry out his designs In the meantime
Philip Xolan walked out of his home with
no leave taking from his young and beauti
ful wife The years have gone by and not
one word luis ever been heard Irom him
Aaron Burr lived abroad some years a
part of the time in great poverty He re
turned to this country in 1812 and resumed
the practice of law in Xew York In his
78th year he married Madam Jummel a
wealthy widow but was soon divorced
His only daughter Theodosia who married

The impeachment trial of Judge Samuel
Chase of Maryland during the days of
Aaron Burr in Washington marks an era
in the chronicles of the Capital The
Senate Chamber was elaborately fitted up
as a high court of impeachment The
Senate chamber then was the room now
occupied by the Supreme Court The
Senators sat as judges on a semi circular
platform on either sido of the Vice-President
presiding Aaron Burr Places
were assigned for the memberg or the House
Diplomatic Corps and a few spectators
The trial demonstrated the iolence of
party feeling ami showed that while Judge
Chase was an arrogant and impulsive man
with strong political prejudices he had not
rendered himself liable to dismissal from
the liencli It was Mtiil of Aaron Burr at
this trial that he presided with the dignity
and the imjiurtiality of an angel but with
the vigor or a devil
A few years later he was himself on trial
for treason while Senator John Smith of
Ohio one of those who sat in judgment on
the Chase impeachment trial only missed
by one vote expulsion for his connection
with Burr and Blennerhasset
Who can question but what there was a
destiny that shaped the lifeof this Republic
It has lived through wars xIitical treach
ery assassination and treason and yet
the Government at Washington still lives
