The weather latterly bad been unfavorable in Ingland to the gathering in of tlie harvest—though a average one was still expected.

Rut this is not a solitary instance. There are many, many instances, in tlie county of New-Custle, of men who really are now convinced that the country is to gain nothing by the change, "'hey do not ex national policy—but have the ;mct any better most serious fears that it will be totally different, They admire the mili of the General, as they and all men were Jackson to succeed. li iry prow But they now see that only a few men, and ought. uot the country, is to be benefitted by u change. They understand, at length, that the name of Jackson is used by many individuals simply to sup runt of popularity. They see in the ply their own front ranks in Delaware, not Jackson's original friends—but new comers—men who denounced the General—and now support him. because they ima nginç it will be a support to themselves. These and other things are operating upon tlie minds of two or three hundred citizens öl this coun ty, and every day adds to the number of those who are taking a more rational view of our public af fairs. We have always known, and always said, nntliing but lime and more knowledge was wanting to produce the most salutary changes.

WHAT AILE 1 11 THEE, SUSSEX ? Our political Doctors have bail a very arduous and extensive practice for the last three months ; and with ■ hat profit or loss, must be seen on Tues day next. So .much travelling by laud and water; 3uch constant correspondence ; such various pres criptions ; such vast and Jieart-renderirig interest taken in the welfare of the patients—all operate most grievously on the minds and bodies of these worthy and disinterested men. Their attention to the body politic, generally, has been great indeed ; but the lamentable state of Sus sex County is a most killing concern. Two of these doctors left. New Castle on Sunday last, and rested their precious bones, for the night, in a humble dwelling in the recesses of the forest of Kent ! The main road was too crooked for them to travel, as it would delay their arrival among the objects of their care and love. A most awful Adams fever is raging in Sussex, and the consequences will be truly lamentable, if the people will not submit to the prescriptions of these Doctors. It seems to be in vain that those good people assure the Doctors that they are in good health, and want none of their political ad vice and attendance. But the Doctors insist upon it that theyjreally are ill: that they ought to employ good physicians thatthey, themselves are the only good ones in the State : and thatthey have left their homes and travelled from 80 to 100 miles, to cure this raging fever, purely from pity and compassion. Dr. Dingle, Dr. Maull, and men of that character, are deemed very old fashioned sort of physicians, who are not able to cure this new and alarming dis ease. No body is fitted for the purpose except one who has, at least, smelt the shop of the celebrated Dr. Van Buren, who makes a traffic of politics, im proves a press, and manufactures a panacea for the most adroit, consistent, and rapid change of any opinion. Why then, will ye die, 0 men of Sussex ? These doctors love you, and they labour, night and day, for your welfare. They will cure you, without money and without price. Their bowels yearn over you with the most heartfelt pity and compassion. Submit, therefore, to their gentle operations, and be cured, if not for life, at least for amusement. Send not home these circumnavigators of ciiarit , without taking their pills and their potions, lest they should tell you to your faces that you are a set of dunderheads, nincompoops, and ninnyhammers. If ye refuse, with decision and firmuess, the Jack son pills, you will indeed be called upon to sorrow' most of all that you will see their faces no more ! How can you doubt their love and their aifection ? Have they not given you the most positive assuran ces of it? Have they not travelled through sands and forests, through mud and mire, by night and day, when you hau no physicians to heal you ? Say not that you havebeen be-deviled long enough. Give up your opinions to meu of more knowledge, & more science, and who will be so afflicted unless you ac cept their kind and most disinterested services. I. While our New Castle county Lawyers are in Sussex, trying to rectify matters and things, we hope that the Democratic Jackson men of that coun ty will ascertain, to their own satisfaction, whether the Congressional candidate who is kindly offered for their support, is of such a character in all re spects as they like. Whose candidate is he in rea lity ? By whose influence was he got up? Whose in fluence will he sustain ? And so forth. Our accounts from all parts of the state not only continue favorable—but appear more and more so everv day—Kensey Julius, Jt. the candidate of the people, whose independence and qualifications are bjectionable to the Jackson eleventh hour men, will be elected by a handsome majority, if the friends uf older and good government will all ex press their sentiments at the ensuing election, To the polls, one and all. to of so o of iOOi iOOi For the Delaware Journal. Mr. Bradford, We are a considerable class of persons who have been uniformly friends of Jackson's election from principle, who have just discovered, that our allies, tlie Senators, States Attorney, &c. toe. toe. who have lately joined our ranks and who ought to be satisfied with a moderate share of weight and in fluence in the various arrangements, necessary to insure success to our cause, have actually monopo lized the whole concern, luul now dictate to us, what we shall do, with as much confidence as though we were their vpssnls. 1 as an individual, have been admirer ol'General Jackson from the first, and feel extremely anxious to see Him occupy the Presi dential chair, in which desire 1 know a great number of my fellow citizens in this County are cordial, and when the contest shall be alone between Jackson and Adams, will sacrifice every minor interest to secure the election of the General ; but we are not willing on the present occasion, to make tlie sacrifice that is required of us, and give up the men we prefer, sole ly lo exalt a character to the office of Representa tive to Congress, who to say nothing of his want of qualifications and popularity, has been palmed upon solely thro management. As already stated, we are very willing to have the Reads, M'Lanes, ltidge leys, toc. toe. &c. as allies, but cannot consent to purchase their aid, at the expense of our own inde pendence. Why has there been so much shuffling, in fixing on a man for Congress, when it is now pret ty generally known that Bayard was to be the man from the first? Why did Black and Head refuse to be taken up, when strongly solicited by their friends to do so—and why were Mr. Whiteley's feelings sported with, by being placed on'the Ticket ? 1 answer_Black and Read were behind the curtains; they knew all the arrangements—they knew that ! whoever was taken up, except Bayard, was a sham, new an US I p a bait to catch gblls, and lhereforê choose to give this honor to Mr. W. an original Jackson man, while they reserve something more substantial for their friends, l spook thé sentiments of many, when I say, that under ull the existing circumstances, we will throw away our votes*—we cannot vote for an Administration man, and we will not vote for nny man palmed upon us by a set of would-be-lords.

JOHN McMINN, Chairman. Wm. DUNNAN, Secy. OPINION OF CONGRESS 1 The Providence (R. 1.) Journal, after a summary view or tlie variety of items which make up the sum of General Jackson's unfitness for the uffice of Presi dent, recals to our memory the following circum stance, which will not be without its effect upon all We extract it minds open to correct impression, from the Journal in the terms in which we have fuurul it. Comment of ours would be superHouus : "After the termination of the Seminole war. the conduct of General Jackson was ma le the subject of investigation in the House of Representatives and the Senate of tlie United States. Our late dis tinguished Senator, the Hon. James Barrel, was of the committee from the Senate. The committee re ported, "that they conceive General Jackson to have disregarded the positive orders of the. liar depart ment the Constitution mil the Antes," and " that lie lias taken upon himself, not only tlie exercise of those powers delegated to Congress but those 'express ly reserved to the State , in tlie appointment ot the Officers of the militia. It will be remembered that this report was made by honorable and high-minded Senators at a time when nn excitement existed a gainst tlie General, when he was not before the peo ple as a candidate for any office, when the thought of the Presidency had never even entered his shell, when encircled by the halo ol military glory, and where all the feelings, the prejudices, and the pas sions of the mass of our population were enlisted in his favor. The report was not made^from party views or sectional feelings, but from a sense of duty. With regard to the conduct uf General Jackson,the committee says, " were this nation subject to the will of a military despot, and were there no constitu tional barriers to the inordinate exercise of miii'ary ambition, more than this could scarcely have been ex pected ." ' I ambition, more pected ." \_From . the National Advocate .3 "Change of Opinion."— The spectres of depar ted" opinions which we have recently caused to pass before theeyes of tlie astounded aud amazed Editor of the N. Ÿ. Enquirer have forced from him a few lines on the subject. "We all thought," lie says, "Gen. Jackson a man of ungovernable passions and vaulting ambition, and that it not elected, ((not so it was, if elected) lie would push on difficulty and violence—So we all thought and sowe all wrote. The change of opinion is accounted for thus. "Ins conduct at Washington, alter being defeated by a corrupt bargain, dissipated every apprehension and proved us to be in tlie wrong " The sum of all this, is, that because, when tlie General was detested in the Presidential election "he did not push on dini cultv & violence" he is not to be considered "a.man of ungovernable passions and vaulting ambition. Because he did not set fire to the capital, or ovre turn tlie government, he is to be set down as a ve ry moderate gentleman, and entitled to govern a country he has treated with so much forbearance and clemency. We do not know how this wou.d sound speech, but it reads bud: So much for giving "reasons upon compulsion." ... . We take it to he the generally received opinion ol in a this community, ttiaf the Editor of \\hotn Wé 5[>fnk, is not marvellously troubled with principles of an/ sort. Opinions are his merchandize, and if he had not always found a profitable market for thetn* he has doubtless sometimes consoled himself upon the consideration of their quality. tVe would advise him never again to öfter a reason for a change of sen timent--—unless he should be able to show a substan tial one f something that will chink. He is tiow advo cating the cause of Gen. Jackson. Would any Adams man like to know how to silence his batte ry ? We can tell them. IO"" Put money in thy purse." Ridiculous nonsense! The Enquirer and the Evening Post to pretend to account fur change of opinion concerning Gen. Jackson. No such change has taken place. The voice of the men has indeed changed, buta "false face doth hide what the false heart doth know." The Enquirer savs, "opinions of public men are constantly liable to change in conse quence of the different positions in which they may be placed."—This sentiment contains just about , that degree of propriety and soundness which might be expected from a man who, "Is every thing by fits and nothing long. No honest mnn, or independent mind would fash ion "opinions of public men" according-to" the dif ferent positions in w hich they may be placed." The truth is, in our apprehension, that the absure and most irreconcilable contradictions Which we haver pointed out in the public declarations of the Post and Enquirer, are chargeable entirely and exclusive-' iy to a want of any uniform and stable political principle. It is indeed common to change opinions and to commit errors ; but we shall not consent, nor will others, to be dunced so much as to believe a mo ment that the Editors of the Enquirer and Post know any thing more now of General Jackson's fitness for the Presidency than they did some years ago. Then he was every thing that was dangerous, cruel and ty rannical, and if he was so then he he is so still. We doubt not while the Editor is honest in his zeal, patriotic in what he says, not mercenary but seeking the public good, and maintaining for office such men only as are fit for office, his pages may be turned uver in vain for contradictions which will af fect his character or call in question his motives of veracitv. <?• Extract of a letter dated Georgetown* Del* Sept. 25, 18 7i very active one among the adminis tration men at this place.
