~ but which, from its violence and fallkood,
will eventually excite public indignation,
" and the establishment will fink under the
displeasure ef its matters."
But although truth will eventually tri.
umph over falfhood, and consequently the
fupportei s of our government will in time
fucreed in the eftabli/hment of those princi
ples, upon which our honor and happiness
as a nation depends ; yet it is to be lament
ed that the violence of faAien against found
principles, and the clamor of party against
the wisdom of our administration, will pro- .
craftinate the period, when we shall enjoy
the repose of political tranquility ; when the
constitution itself will be fafe ; when the
great anchor of our government, the Chief
Magifirate of the Union, whose unequalled
wisdom and unrivalled firmnefs entitling him
to the love and applause of all the American
people, will be without an enemy ; when
the intrigues of some men, against govern
ment, will cease to possess influence, and the
misplaced ambition of another to rife to the
Prefidei.tial Chair of the Union, will be
laughed out of countenance, as the idle
dreams of a rsstless, nervous politician.
In this struggle between the government, >
and those ip opposition to it, cool and dis
passionate minds look out for some fixed
point, to whieh they may rally, with a cer
tainty of doing right. That point is, the
preservation of our government from the
boflile attacks, made upon the constituent
parts of it, by which, that government has
an exigence, and through which, it has the
power of afting. I admit no diftindtion,
between the hostilities committed against the
constitution itself, and outrage and insult of
fered to thole departments, which the c®n
ftitution, through the voice rf the people,
has made, and filled. Our constitution was
called into existence, by a majority of the
people ; the departments, authorized by the
eonflitution, are filled by men, chosen by
the people ; if therefore, outrage and insult
are offered to those, who fill these depart
ments, the injury is done to the spirit of the
constitution itfelf, and the elential rights of
a majority of the people. The reverse of
these principles, appears to be the basis, upon
which your press is instituted ; and thecon
tents, of the firft number of it, fully charac
terize the objett for which it was instituted.
It will appear evident to the readers of
your paper, whatever ether views you may
have, or whatever disguise you may pleale
to afTume, that the principal objeft of year
press, is, to abuse the administration of our \
government, as a means preparatory to the
ensuing election of electors of president and
vice-president ef the United States, of en
suring the ele&ion of men, whose princi
ples and pra&ices coincide with your own '
The evidence of charalVer, which the firft
number of " The Press" has exhibited to
the public, illustrates the extent of your
candour and liberality on that fubjeft.—-
When that eleftion is thus anticipated,
To Messrs. Meriwether Jones, Alexander
M'Krae, and John H. Foushee, Trustees
of a paper, entitled " The Press," publish
ed at Richmond, Virginia.
YOUR printed letter, addressed tc me,
and dated the 2d Nov. last, was received by
me feme time since.
As you were personally unknown to me,
and the prcpofed " proje<ft," for the estab
lishment of a news paper was brought for
ward, under the auspices of principle;, which
I do not approve, I had indulged a hope,
that my perfeft silence on the l'ubjedl of
yotir letter, would, by you, have been con
sidered as a fufficient mark of my unwilling
ness, to become a party to your scheme.
But finding that you have, notwithstanding
I had given your proposals no encourage
ment, forwarded to me the firft number of
the paper, called " The Press," published
by you at Richmond, agreeably to the plan
proposed in your letter, I am conllraitied at
this time, to express my disapprobation of
the principles upon which your paper appears
to be bottomed, and to request, that you
may not in future trouble me with 'tny of
the fruits of your labois, through the me
dium of " The Press."
In your letter, you presuppose the exist
ence ot two facts, to correft the evils of
which, you fay, forms the bails, upon which
your" Press" is instituted.
The first fact stated by you, is, that there
daes exil\ " a party in this cauntry, which
" arrogates to itfelf the exclusive claim to
" federalifm, confiding of men, interested
" in keeping the people of America ignorant
"of their public affairs the second fadt
which has claimed your attention, is, " that
" the frequent attempts made to buy up the
" republican papers, and put them down, by
" harrafling and ridiculous suits ; or for li
" bel aud sedition, point out the necessity as
" eftabliihing your " Press."
It is necessary, before just tonqlufions can
be drawn, that the premifci Ihould be sub
stantiated, and therefore, you fliould, firft,
have fully demonstrated both these fatts.
You are now called upon for a proof of the
existence of these facts, and I trufl that it is
out of your power to produce such evidence.
Thus destitute of principle, and of tritb,
you appear before the world at the head of an
institution, bottomed on falfhood ; which,
"whilst it arrogates to itfelf the right of de
claring into existence a party, to whom yeu
afcr.be, without any colour of proof, the
most improper pra&ices ; you extend the
luminous rays of your malevolent fyflein, and
under the insidious garb of pretended friend
ship to the country, vainly attempt to poi
lon the pure fountains of our political en
joyments, by endeavoring to create jaaloufy
between the people and the government.
But I trust " in the omnipotence of truth"
and believing, that " far the greatest por
tion of the people of Americ* consist of men,
moral, humane, religious, and well affedt
ed to the republican principles of our go
vernment," and feeling that attachment, and
alive to their true happiness, they will, on
the one hand, despise the insult you have
pointedly offered to them, by charging tlxri
with ton much indolence to watch over, and
too mvcb ignorance to comprehend their pub
lic affairs ; and on the other hand, that
they will diligently guard against a " Press"
which was conceived by falihood,—born in
a conflict ot party against the government
of the people, and organized far the express
purpose oi opposing the >;iws, upon which
suits far libels and sedition are authorised
to be instituted ; and this too, as it npetirt
by your own expreflions, an « a base f 0
broad," and «on principles so extended as
to be beyond the reach of accident," to lim, t
controul, or punish. '
With these marks of chara&er, self-im
pressed, on the infant countenance of your
proposed project, where faifhood and malev
olence contend for pre-eminence, overigne.
ranee and impudence, I aflc, upon what
ground, can the people of America expect
from such a project, <' consequences rood
beneficial to the freedom and happineft of all
our countrymen ?" If jour project reds on
" a bate so broad," and will be extended be
yornl the '• reach of accident" to controul.
I a£k, what security have the people of A.
merica, that their freedom and happinefj,
will be most fafc in your hands ? In whose
hands ? An unknown Editor, governed L
three obscure trus.'ees !
