For the Gazette of the United Stater.
I (houjd not be furpriicd, if the Jacobins in |
Cengrels (fcouid now endeavor to withhold- the
communications they have received from the Pre- j
fident, fritai the people, ar.d bury them in eternal
fildr.ee. While they supposed the difclorure would
bring dishonor and disgrace on our own govern
ment, and furnifti them with the basis of a juftifi
ration for the damnable outrages of fheir iriends
the French, tS><r> made the loudest clamor* for the
papers ; the bifrutKims, the difpatcßcs, were ever in
their mouths,—no motives of prudence, no confi
dence in the President, could appease the bellow
ing, braying herd—The President was openly
blackguarded in their paper, the Aurora; and
Giles ana "Nicholas and {others, made (harp and
luslignant reflections on him in congress. But
when these gentlemen (I beg pardon) these mem
bers discovered by of the federal
party, and from other fcrcumflances that the dif
closure ot these papsrs would not our ex
ecutive, tlisy ftot only took no measures to ca 1
for them in congress, but when the requcft was
brought forward by a federal member, they at
tempted to clog the resolution in such a manner
that they hoped it wou4il fail. But they were dif
aopointed x t only in the conduil of the federal
fide of the house, but of the Prsfident alio, for
to their injiiitr merlifitatim he h 'sfent thcttik ail they
afreifur —If now th»fe inffruilioni and dispatches,
f<> far from involving oar executive in that dilkon
«r and disrepute with the people, which these fel
lows believed, or aiFeiled to tjeliev:, they wouli,
shall do him ,the greatefl honor as an able flatef
nun and a wife patriot—if they (hall cxpofe the
villi calumniis that have been propagated against
him ard convince the people, of his abilities and ,
virtues; —if, too, they (hall expose the studied and
iy Hematic outk-age and violence With which th
French have treated us, and the de'lrjiSlive designs
they are exerting against us, these patriots in
Congress will endeavour to conceal a'l these things
from the people, left they should withdraw thejt
fs<slions of the people from the French, and give
them fmne c'Snfidence in their own government. —
Let it he remembered that on the fifth ef April,
1798, I r.y, that some attempt will bs made by
the Jacobins in Congress to conceal theie dispatches
or a part of them from the people.
A question has often been asked—Who
is Giles ? I'll fatisfy the curiosity, because
it is right to know his origin, in older to
leflen attachment to his French fyftetn.
Farmer Giles is descended from the lowest
grade of Gentlemen in the ancient dominion.
His father was overseer of Mr. Berkely's
negroes ; arid being acute in his duty, sav
ed some money, by a ptofeflion mean in its
calling ajid cruel in its nature. Still, how
ever; Giles's father was too sensible not to
deplore his own want of learning, and was
determined that his son should benefit by
his afiidurty in the field. He gave the boy
a latin education, and in due time placed
him to the study of the law. .Thus endow
«d with latin and law,.young Giles Joon
became tolerably fsjinent in his profeffion.
But unfortunately the genius of the lad
had a bias also to gaming ; and hence no
sooner were the courts over, than away
flew Giles to the bowling green, card table
and horse racing—But above all, .his great
and amiable penchant was to the infamous
faro tabje. Giles has lately taken up the
family calling, and by marriage, a flumes
the oversight of 500 /laves—hence his pro
pensity to black guarding arises from his own
and from his father's negro-occupation—
and henc- by the rule of contraries, he is
'so superlative a friend to liberty qnd equali
ty —and an
" Adorer of the People•"
From the Aurora of Tuesday.
10 Mr. Robert G. Harper.
I fee in boith Brdwn and Fenno'e papers
of Saturday, a note explaining your aflferti
on in the debate of Thursday last, " that
•' the treaties of Pilnitz and Pavia were
" contemptible forgeries by this note
you confiue the aflertion tcf the second trea
ty of Pilnitz alone, and abandon what you
had declared of the firft treaty formed inthat
city, and by your silence, I suppose you a
bandon what you said ®f the treaty of Pa
via. Inowaffc you what evidence youhavein
proof of the second treaty being any more
a forgery than the others ? these treaties
were all brought to light by the fame means
and communicated to the world through the
fame channel, if that be good authority for
the treaty of Pavia, and the firft of Pilnitz,
why is it not for the other? If you have a
ny evidence to the contrary, I wish you
would refer me to it, in order that I may
come to a jHft conclusion.
From the Aurora of this day.
MR. BACHE, ' •
Mr. Harper did not aflert in his speech
yesterday that the treaties of Pavia arid
Pilnitz were forgeries. He aflerted that
the treaty of' Pavia was a forgery, and also
the paper called the second treaty of Pilnitz
and which fpeakssf a partition of France.
It is not for me to fay on what ground Mr.
Harper affirmed these papers to be forgeries;
but I can fay that they are weH known 10.
be so, having been fabricated by the Brif
fotin faflion, In order to inflame the people
of France against the Emperor, when that
faftion had resolved to declare war against
him for the purposes which are fully difolof
ed in their own writings. For the truth of
liis position Mi. Harper might have appeal
ed to the writings of Burke, of Calonne.
®f Mallet du Pan, of Gifford, and
who have never beeH conttadifted, and to
the speeches in the Briti/h parliament in fa
vor of adminiftratitih, which even lord Lanf
,downe and the opposition did not deny. He
did appeal to the knowledge of every well
informed man now io Europe, and of every
man in this country who had heard any
thing on French affairs more than the pa
pers contained in Deblrett's colleftien, ai.d
some harangues pronounced in the French
I As to the firft treaty of Pilnitz, about
which so much has been said, and so little
. understood, it merely a-eonditjorial and
| definitive agreement betweeri.tlje' Emjiercr
I and the king of PrulEa, that if either of
! their dominions, or any part of the empire
should be attacked by France, they would
unite in their defence, and would moreover
protest the king of France from personal
violence. They did not arm in support of
4 this convention ; and upon appearance of a
more secure and peaceable state bf things in
I France when the king accepted the new
j constitution, they fufpeuded the convention
by a public declaration. This is the utter
most which France and her pa. tizans rßjhig'
and other countries, call a " cbmbination of
despots against the liberties of mankind, 1 '
As to the conductors of th«' lFi^cK.re
volution being' a jjprcrl of miserable scoun
drels' Mr. Harper did'not fay fa. He said
f that he had diitovered the French revolu
tion to have been qontrived and brought a
bout by a a set of ambitiotti and unprinci
pled demagogues, ftrivirig fur power ; a set
of moon-struck philosophers, pursuing vi
sionary schemes; and a set of contemptible
fcoundreh, in pursuit of plunder - ' lii this
opinion I believe him to be correft ; and
those who are acquainted with the aitors in
this bloody drama will find no difficulty in
classing them accordingly. They will pro
bably place d'Orleans and his yuivy counsel
lor Mirabeau at the head ot the firft cl*fs,
with Talleyrand Perigord, Sityes, La Fay
ette, Robefpicrre, and the Lameths for ad

" Now Janus, are you aufwered I"
From the Columbian Centintl.
Or an examination tf ite tate alarming attempt
m CoNGRESS,'<« CONCENTR ATE all power
tie House o/"Rep»»skntativjs.
I have considered in detail the various rights,
powers and of the several branches of our
government relative to the immediate objefi of
my efTays, and hive endeavoured to prove that
the beauty, the order, the harmony and the
utility of the <wbole system efllntially depends
upon the diflindl, the faithful, and the unen•-
crouching exercise of their refpeilive authorities.
I have considered also the nature of appropria
tions, that they are limited in.their nature, con
fined in their obje<sls, and do not involve in
their exercise, that unlimited discretion, that
monftrotis prerogative, that boundless authority,
more dangerous than the Star Chamber, more
sbfolute than a papal conclave, a Turkiih Bi
van, or a " National AJpmbly."
If precedent could be, addueed in support of
this do<stri»e, surrounded with all the majesty
ot antiquity, and the weight of uninterrupted
usage, still I would repel a praftice so perni
cious, so fatal to liberty and to orgahi/ed go
vernment. But I have afierted that lam pre
pared to prove, that this attempt is noveltn the
history of this country and of every other bat'
anced government. Great-Britain has exhibit
ed, if not the heft, certainly the molt stable gov
ernment in which a balance, or division .of pow
er has been attempted. From the annals
therefore of her legislature, one might cxpedt
to ch aw the precedents of such a, claim or pre
ttnfion. Her constitution, founded only on me
mory, and the variable and perilhable records
of parliamentary decisions, has been guarded
with more caution than the Hefpefian fruit.
Her parliament, pofiefling within itfelf, all the
talents, and almost all the ambition of
the nation, has maintained with inflexi
ble perseverance its rights and its privileges, if
there be a fubjeil pre-eminently iutekfrts
the ztfal and excites the jealoujy of the house of
commons, it is the power to hold tlflS " PURSE
STRINGS" of the nation. It is the rightie
unlock the NationalJlrong box.
But can Mr. Gallatin, or Mr. Nicholas, point
us to the example of the house of commons hav
ing exercised, or claimed a power like the one
contended for fey them ? Have THEY ever at
tempted ta Jlarve the judges of the court of
King's bench .' Or have they fubje&td their
foreign miniftere to disgrace and penury, b
withholding theirpromifed renvard and necefla
ry support ? H.ns THEIR minority as virulent
and as daring as any but our own, ever attempt
ed to " flop the wheels cf government," by re
fufing afient to ordinary appropriations ?
" Ourfciends" and Mr. Gallatin's country
men the French, have lately made an ejpxy -afon
a " checked and balanced" government. To
be lure, they have proved that they, do not re
gard the " checks" of their constitution, and arc
not very sedulous to preserve the " balance" at
it; hut still tiiev keep up the exterior pagean
try of forms. Do we find the c'ouucil of five
hundred rafufc to pay the clerks or secretary of
the diredWy ? Do we hear of their Itrikin:;
out the pay and salary of ministers, because
they do not like their printiptys, or because they
are too numerous and increal'e tUe " patrtaa^e"
of the dire&ory ? I am aware that it will be
said that the cases are not perfectly analogous,
that there the directory are the strongest, and
would bar.ifh the members if they should piss
sny offenfive refoltuions, but that in this country,
the greate/1 power resides in the lower branch
of the legislature.
i his obje&ion is solid, I therefore pa/'p to the
consideration of ear praftice, in the several slates
at well as in Congress.
In the conftruiSlmn of all public as well as
private ctmpaSs, the most natural, certainly the
faireft and nuift proper rule, is to aim at the
discovery of the objelils aod intentions of- the
contracting parties —ln determining ou tire
meaning of the constitution ef the United
Stares, it ii certainly correcft to ascertain and
prafliee under similar constitutions of th* state
go«rnment?. J .
Subjlantia.'ly our ancestors throughout New-
England, adopted the English form of govern
ment. , .

Although our house of roprefentatives viere fa
jealous of their right to originate money bills,
I as to rejeft an ail from the fenaie, for the dil-
<*f the 'railing of dogs, brcaufe it
contained a tax upon them, still an
pic be adduced of tbeir thwarting tH"c ordinary
oiperalion of Jawt, by tie exercise of J power to

It was reiei ved for a Frenchman to have the
honor ef introducing this " ne.o light" into our
national assembly.
A Gene-van,which I consider the fame, in the
year 1795-, generously offered to tiach us how
we might render our constitution a dead letter.
How we could retain, the form but destroy the
energy and spirit of our government. .
Albert Gallatin firftereiled the standard ofthe
lioufe in h'oflility to the c6nfiitution, and Nicho
las, Livingfton, Freeman, Skinner, and othir
choice spirits faop rallied, an t entered into the
service of.this recruiting officer.
The firft attempt was to cieltroy a treaty, fp
lemnly ratified by two conjlitu:tonal branches.
The lecond was to fiarve ail the officeisof ihe
mint, a«d' thus repeal an a<S, regiilarly plfll-clDy

From the Midd/efex ( Con.J Gazette.'
Being a farmer, and not very well ac
quainted with public affairs, I would wish
to be informad on certain points. And as
I am not much of a writer, I would put
feme querys, and beg fotne judicipus man
would give me an answer.
1. Are our members of Congress men of
chara dfer for integrity and htnefly, or were
they chosen by rogues for their Knavery ?
2. Have they the fame interest in the
fafety and prosperity of our country as we
have in general; If the country thrives, wilf
it J)c for the benefit of themielves, their
families and friends, and if the country
(hould become poor or go to war, will it be
of any'difadvantagcto them, their families
and friends ?
3. Will their being chofea by the peo
ple once jn two years be likely to have any
influence on them to pursue the good of the
country ?Is it likely that they will, get as
much by honeflly doing their djity, as by
roguishly violating it ?
4. Are our members of Congress men of
information ; and particularly on politics ?
■ 5. Have they as good means of know
ledge, as the writers in our news-papers at
home by the si re fide ?
Now Mr, Dunning, Idoti'» profefs to
know but little, but, if our members of
congress are men of integrity and of infor
matio'n—if their interest and mine is 'the
fame—if they can't bWng on a war or lay a
burdan on the country, without burdening
and hurting themfelvcs, their friends ana
families as ws;ll as me, —if they are likely to
get as much by bonejly as by roguery,—if
they are well informed and have as good or
better mean* of knowledge than onr writers
for the prints, I cannot fee why some peo
ple should be so much against them. May
hap, fir, they vote so clearly of the wremg
fide, that every body fees they are wrong
and difhonefl, for if they are not difhonefl, a
man may think they are wrong, because he
himfelf wants knowledge of fadls, or skill
in judgment. But .1 have often heard it
said, that politics are so uncertain, where all
the fails are kuovvn, that people will never
think alike,' and that wife men iriSy well be
of a different opinion. If but half the fads
aie known, it will be clearer still, that wife
men may dtffer, and I have often thought
(but mayhap it was a foolilh thought) that
in the country we don't know every fa€t a
bfout political measures, to a right judg
ements And though it is right for men to
think and taik for themfeHes, is it not e-'
qually right to think and-talk modestly, and
not to be too confident in our opinions ?-
Must we not fir, put ouetruft in men ? And
where (hall we find men mOre honest and
better informed, than our present members
of congress ?
Perhaps, it is the fenditig'men to Congress
that changes therti from lloncft men of sense
to regpes of sense, or without ffcrtfe, and if
so, we had better keep our good men at
home, & not ftnd them there to be fpoiled'.
Lj men mti/l not trnjl men, who shall we trust
(hall we trust the printers ? But they disagree
so mueh that one fays a thing is white and
the other fays it is black. Shall we .trust
Speculators, who always make a noifc to have
measures taken, that will raise the price of
their L<and, or to prevent its falling ? Shall
we trust Englifhmeti, Frenchmen, Irilhmen,
rather than ourown country folks? shall we
trust those naen, who wish that they or their
friends may go to Congress ? shall we trust
discontented, turbulent men, or men that
hnve not much morality or much sense*?
The weak answer I should give would be,
trust our own Countrymen of reputation for
«wr >fcuag.ijn <»<'>' %
honejly, goodjenfe and means of knozuiedge.
Who are tb*y ?
raan will show them to me, I will
be obliged to him. Bufc if he cant CtOi+ me
' men of better character for honcfty, and
fenfe andinfoj-mation than ourprefent mem
bers of cQiigrels,—l don't fee what he will
get by his show.
So if he don't show me, that those who
call therafelves republicans, are more honest
men, and better informed, than those who
are called friends of Government, I dosbt
whether it is troith my mhile to change
my creed at this time of day.
; P. S. What is the reason ; Mr. Dunn
' ing, that the prints are so full of pieces in
the fprißg and fall ? Are men know
ing then tbau at other
ousfor public good, oris it then, that fly,
artful men ttndeavour toraiftf a fto'rm, that
Ithey and their friends may be chosen to of
fice ? If so, I fay, trujl not the writers on
politics till after freeman's met ting.
