PUBLISIHED WELEKLY,
JAMES ATKINSON,
PUBLISIHER AND PROPRIETOR
Orrice, corner of Thames-street and Sher
man's whaif, a foew doors south of the Brick
Market. 1 ;- Entrance first door down the wharf.
From the U, 8. Telegraph, of April 15,
TO THE READERS OF THE
UNITED STATES TELEGRADPIL.
[Concluded.]
Having, in u previous number, proved
that both Mr. Blair and Mr. Kendall
were in favor of the election of Mr,
Adams, upon the condition that Mr,
Clay should be appointed Secretary of
State, and that Mr. Blair took an ac
tive pait to persuade Mr. White, his
representative in Congress, to vote for
Mr. Adams, T will proceed to explain
the agency which they have had in pro
ducing that echism in the republican
party which threatens its overthrow, and
with it a withering blight to the fame
and popularity of Gen., Jackson. Mr.
Kendall had long expreseed a desire to
share “the emoluments of the press™ at
Washington, and a correspondence took
place between us on the subject, about
the close of the Presidential election,
in which 1 refused to take him as a
partner, but made a propositionto em
ploy him as an associate editor. He
came on to this city in the winter of
1826 and '29, and the negotiation was
cuspended until the election of printer of
Congress; in the mean time the pro
priety of establishing another paper was
agitated, and 1 was at the time informed
that certain individuals, in their particu
lar circle, for they dared not then make
such a suggestion to General Jackson,
urged the necessity of appointing Mr.
Kendall fourth auditor, expressly with
the view of availing themselves of his
talents as a writer, when they might find
it expedient to establish another press,
Thus premonished, and knowing that,
if another press was established, its
principal object would be my destrue
tion, I was careful to give no pretext for
a complaint. 1 was ardent in support
of the administration, even to my own
personal injury, and omitted no fair op
portunity of defending the disaffected,
whilst I eaid but little of Mr. Calhoun or
his friends. My object was to preserve
the union and harmony of the party, and,
as I believed the re-election of General
Jackson essential, thereto, in all my
conversations and writings, publicly and
privately, advocated it. ~As to myself]
impelled by the ardor of my feelings, 1
had extended the circulation of my pa
per so much that the want of punctuali
ty on the part of many of my subscri
bers' had involved me in heavy pecuni
ary liabilities, to discharge which would
require the patronage that 1 foresaw
would be withdrawn, in case Mr. Van
Buren should establish a press devoted
to his personal ambition. It was my
interest, and 1 considered it the interest
of the country, that no collision should
arise in the party; and, to prevent it, 1
was solicitous, from the first, that Gen.
Jackson should be re-clected. Mr.
Kendall was placed in a very dillerent
position. Strong objections were made
to his appointment, the ratification of
which, by the Senate, was, as he well
knew, extremely doubtful, and he ac
cordingly cast about him for the means
ot comfort for “a destitute family.”
In his letter to me of the 7th of No
vember, 1830, he says:
“Had I been rejected by the Senate, |
should at once have staited a newspaper
in Washington. It appeared to be the
readiest way by which I eould provide
the means of comfort for a destitute fami
iy, &e.”
He qualifies this declaration by say
ing, |
“This step would have been taken
without any feeling of hostility to you, or
any intention to compete with you for
the printing of Congress. On the con
trary, it would have been my desire,
and I should have made every proper
effort to continue to you that printing,
and showld have been conlent with such
)mrli:m 0’ the I’Rl.\"l'l.\'(.‘ _fin' the
PUBLIC OFFICES asthe incumbents
might think proper to give me.”
“I firmly belicved that sach a paper
here, in FRIENDLY hands, instead of
injuring you, would promotle yowr ullinate
wnlerest.”’
Now it happens that Judge Overton,
of Nushville, spest some time in this
city during the first session of the last
Congress, and, on his way from
Wheeling to Louisville, he told D,
Hardage Lanc, off St. Louis, that Mr,
Kendall, in case of his rejection, in
tended to establi-h a paper in Washing
ton: and, in reply to a remark of Dy,
Lane’s, that in that case the adiinistra
tion would be ably defended, having
two such editors as Kendall and mysell
i its support, Judge Oveiton said
“ My, Greenis too much aitached to My,
Calhoun; he is wo longer consudered a
Ef"ic'nd of the adwinistration.” This
conversation was communicated to me
'at the time, by Dr. Lane, in a letter
ifrnm Louisville, and that letter was sub
‘mitted to Major Barry, who expressed
(his surprise, and to the President, who
admitted that efiorts had been made to
'impair his confidence in my friendship
for him, upon the ground that I was too
much tho [riend of Mr, Calhoun. |1 ask
the reader to bear this in mind, whilst
I proceed to show the means by which
Mr. Kendall operated,
| Mr. Kendall, in his letter to the edi
tor of the Ohio Monitor, dated the 15th
of February, 1831, says:
’ “Movements here during the year
1820, tending to sow dissention in his
cabinet, arising as they did chiefly from
Mr. Calhoun’s friends, and seeming to
have in view the destruction of some of
the firmest and best personal and politi
cal friends of the President, together
with the nullifying schemes of South
Carolina, created some distrust in the
President’s mind. Accident brought to
“him a communication of Calhoun’s hos
tility to him in Mr. Monroe’s cabinet
through a new channel, and he now
‘desired to know the truth.” l
| I his letter to the editor of the New
ITampshire Patriot, of the 17th Febru
ary, he says: |
| “——The attempt made in 1820
to distract his cabinet, and throw
firecbrands ameng his friends com
ng chiefly as they did from the
Ariends of Mr. Calhoun, excited his sus
picion that the Vice President was not
'sa candid, nor so clear of intrigue as he
had supposed. In this state ol things,
it happened altogether by accident
‘that he heard of Mr. Calhoun’s hostility
to him in Mr. Monroe’s eabinet through
'a new channel, which induced him to
‘vxprvss a wish to know the truth of the
statement,” !
| The Nashville Republican of the 3d
of March, says: |
- “During the vear 1829, circumstan
ces occurred; which led him to believe, !
he might be mistaken in his estimate of |
Mr. Calhoun’s character, as a plain fair
}dvuling man devoted to the interests of
his adminmistration, and the peace and
Iprn::pcrit_v of his country. Through
several channels; the story of Mr.
Calhoun’s oppositicn to hum in Mr,
‘Monroe’s eabinet again reached him,
and finally, aletter from My, Crawford,
broadly making the charge, was put into
his hands.”? !
k The Louisville Advertiser of the €th
tol March referring to the game subject,
fsuys:
! “It is a fact, however, that many
have doubted the sincerity of the at
tachment professed by Mr. Calhoun for
‘the present Executive, since they saw,
in 1829, an attempt openly made to
ddentity the present administration with
the nullifiers of the South. That move
‘ment was followed by others in and out
‘of Congress, which served to strengthen
rather than to allay suspicion. The
‘character of the opposition manifested
by My, Calhoun’s friends to a certain
~cabinct appoitment.”
! In the Globe of the 19th February,
My, Kendall says:
- “Compelled at length, by facts and
circumstances to doubt the sincerity of
his supposed ancient friend, he deter
imim-d to know the truth. With this
view, he obtained; in authentic shape,
the charges which had bLeen made of
Mr. Calhioun’s course in the cabinet, so
different from what he had supposed,
submitted them direetly to the person
implicated, and asked whether they were
true,”
~ Again, in that paper of the 19th
March, he says?
“The writer of this knows all about
the establishment of the Globe, * *
But for intrigues hostile to Gen. Jack
son, to the peace, usefulness; and efli
ciency of his administration of which
that editor (the editor of the Telegraph)
was the principal agent, the establish
ment of this paper (the Globe) would
have been discouraged, and it is presum
ed would never have taken place,” '
Now, no one can mistake the “‘cir
crmstances” here referved to. And no
one can hesitate to believe thaty whilst
I was laboring to guard against the ef
feets, apprehended from the appointinent
of Major Eaton, Mr. Kendall was busily
engaged, using the “circumstances of
1829" to supplant me in the President’s
confidence. No one can doubt; be
cause it is here expressly admitted, that
the ohjections made to the appointment
of Major Eaton, gave rise to the firsl
suspicion in the mind of the President
that Mr, Calhoun had acted with do
plicity ; and accorcigly we find, that in
the autumn of 1429, Major Lewis visit
ed New York, and that he and Major
Hamilton, at Major Hamilton’s houeey
examined My, Forsyth's leiter, in which
Mre. Calhoun was falecly charged with
having moved Gen, Jackson’s “arrest.”
Me. Hami'ton, in his publication of the
Evening Post of the 20th off February
last, says:
“I'he letier from Mr. Forevth to me
“LIBERTY and UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE 1 wensren

- was not scen by any person until the;
AUTUNMN oF 1829, WHEN 1T WAS READ
ey Masor LEwis a 1 My novse.” Why
was it read by MAJOR LEWIS:
-We will soon see. General Jackson
~ had entered on the discharge of his
| official duties with a fixed purpose of
devoting himscll’ to his country. e
had just buried the pious partucr of his
'bosom. The recollection of the manner
inowhich My, Ingham had defended her
character against the rude attacks of
| Jonathan Roberts, and the serviees of
| this press, in her behally were then
Mreshiin his recollection, and associated
| with her memory, Never will 1 forget
his feeling or his manner, when con
versing with liim on this subject in con
nexion with the “circumstances of
1829, set forth by Mr, Kendall, and
~the attempt to make an impression upon
his mind that the Secretary of War held
the same relation to society that he had
done. She, whom he had left ut the
Hermitage, and whose death was a na-
Ction’s loss, was not a gay, thoughtless,
indiscreet woman, fond of admiration,
and thirsting for fashionable life; resol
ved to use all the means within her
' reach to furu' hersell on society; boast
ing of her influence, and threatening
the refractory with her vengeance, No,
she was a pious, and, for thirty years,
had been an excmplary wite, shrinking
from the gaze of the world, taking re
fuge from ats evils in the endearments of
domestic virtue, and her ¢hristian chari
ties; beloved and respected most by
those who knew her best. He then saw
and felt the contrast; and to doubt i,
was not suflicient to separate him from
his early and long tried fiiend. But, by
a series of artful insinuations, his feeling s
and sympathics became enlisted, and he
was induced to belicve that Mr. Cal
houn and his fiiends had conspired a
gainst the peace and character of the
Sceretary ol War, That clevated re
finement and delicate sensibility) which
he, but for the “circumstances” around
him, would have prized as the excel
lence of our socicty, was tortured into a
pohitical intrigue of which he was taught
to believe Mr. Calhoun to be the impulse,
—Then " Major Lewis, knowing his jeal
ous regard for his military fame, sought
Mr. Forsyth’s letter to My, Hamilton, as |
the means of crcusing the alienation he
tween Gen, Jackson and Mr. Calhoun, f
Yet, it will be scen that, although Major
Lewis visited New York in the antumn
of 1829, and there saw the letter; a copy
of it was not given to Gen, Jackson un
til the 12th of May, 1830, The reason
or delay will presently appear. Gener
al Jackson’s contidence in My, Calhoun
had not then been suthiciently impaired.
He had not then condcmned Mr. Callioun,
How that condemnation was produced
is easy of explanation, It will be recol
leeted that, betore the mecting of Con
gress, ina conversation with Mr. Van
Buren upon the subject, he expressed to
me a doubt of Gen, Jackson’s being a
candidate for re-clection. On the 10th
of December, an article appeared in the
New York Courier and Enquirer, nomi
nating Mr. Van Buren as a contingent
candidate for the Presidency.
This publication produced wuch con
versation in and out of Congress, on the
subject of'the Presidential election. No
itelligent observer could hesitate to be
lieve that Mr. Van Buren was organiz
ing a party to push his fortunes then; but
it was soon ascertained that among the
supporters of Gen, Jackeon, in both Hou
ses ol Congress; he stood i a meagre
minority, His first alternative was to
throw himselfon the opposition, believing
that Mr. Clay could not maintain himselt
as a candidate, Accordingly, when mr,
Webster and the concentrated force of
the opposition press were laboring to de
stroy the Telegraph, the New York Cou
rier poured in its traitorous broadside, at
the moment that 1 was grappled with mr
Webster, and fighting for my existence,
Finding that he would not take with
Congress; Mr, Van Buren resolved upon
a war with that body, and to sist upon
the re-election of General Jackson, Ae
cordingly, an article, unanthorized by
General Jackson, was prepared for the
Courier and Enquirer, positively announ
cing him as a candidate. When this
came | called onthe President, and hav
ing prepared a reply in accordance with
s suggestions, read it to him before s
publication. (See my letter to me. Dun

the only one that 1 ever subuntted to
himy) wiitten upon his sugeestion, adopt
g s own adeas, and nearly his own
woids, upon the subjecet of his being a
candidate tor re-clection, has been the
fruittul source of attacks:; and from 1t
Lave becn drawn most of the argument,
to prove that Mr. Calhionn had resolved
to become a candidate and that he rehed
tpon an union of anti-masons and feder
alists to bear him to the Presidency
The tollowing letier, written to Major
- Noab at the tie, fully repels this charge:

| It was at this period that My, Van

thereby beconming the eandidate of the

excitement, for the dounle purpose of
weakening Mro Calhoun i the south,
and strengthening himselt w the middle,

this purpose that Mr. Webb was instiuct
ed not to assatl Mr. Webster, and a rei
crence to the columns of the Cowrier and
Enquirer, and the Albany Argus, of that
date, will show that whilst 1, who am now

has been clearly ascertwined; as I fore
gaw, that Mr. Webster does not intend to
play hieutenant to Mr. Van Buren, and
a corresponding change has taken place
in the Courier and Argus.
