Mr. Fen no,
WHY w s iv t the elegant French SonrW, ad
dreflVd ro Mr. Fieneau, anrt published >n
his Gazette ot W<dw fJay last, trar.flated tor the
delight ot common readtis ? 1 is unk i»d ihus to
confine 'he treatto the Jew. In the Nation's Ga
zette the many w ay expect to partake ot what is
good. And that it is good may be ps chimed
from its being in that ch'fte and free Gazette, aj
veil as from its being a lampoon on the Vicc-Pie
fjdent and the Sccrctary ot the Tfeafury. Mr.
JFieneau being t raffia tor of French was in duty
bound to translate it ; and in rhyme too, as he is
a poet. Many admirersof t"c chaste style of that
Gazettt, are ot opinion that the editor emly could
do juilice 10 the spirit ot the original, which is |
oMenJoft *n the translation trom one tongue to a
notheT— zi good fpii it fl ; « wntle it i»drawing 11.-
to anoth r t ik. The re is an elegante in the claf
ficai works ot Gvub-flrret, which was thought
brv nd the reach ol imitation in t-his country, till
the aticmpt by tin editor of that paper evinced b\
nsCuccefa that fit occafjons are lometimes wanting,
but w hen the) do occur they feld« tn tail to draw
forth genius No sooner did that gazette appeal,
than it seemed if certain bright geniuses had sud
denly found their talents wiih the opportunity t<<
display them. The translator ot Fiench, may be
fatd, therefore, to do a public wrong "by with
holding a trarflarion which he only has a talent t».
/rive, without ftiffer'rng the volatile (alt of th<
y «ich ;o tfcape. Only two reasons ocdur t«j
diifudcie him. The piece being in praise of hm
ft't, his modeOy is fparcd some blushes while it
remains in a foreign tongue ; and secondly, bein<;
hired in the department of ft ate, poflibly his em
ployer might be offended with a lampoon on two
great officers of the government But a free press,
that is to fay, a press en jaged to publish cutting,
two-edged pieces agailift men and meafuresjhoulr'
not be gagg'd and muzzled oy little scruples. An
oppoi tunity to tcl! keen truths may riot occui with
equal arfvanrafv ; and on the other hand, if the
ptcve were tratiflated, though his modesty mighi
frtficr. it is to be hoped it would not die of its
wound ; and his employer would forgive anv
rude treatment of those great officers, from a just
fenfeof the great zeal and faithful Cervices of his
clerk and editor in the caufc of liberty. Pethap?,
after ail, the many may yet hope to be favored with
a translation. C.
Mr. Claypoole,
H AVINGob e vej in yonrpaperof this day,
a New-York paragraph, that the Electors
ot Vermont would mo'.t probably give a unani
mous vote for t':e re-ele<stion of George Walh
ington and John Adam*, to the office of Prefi
dci t and Vice-Pr\,';dent of the United States.
J could wish to hint to the public the reason
why the Vermont Ek-ftors will so vote, efpeci
allywith refpett to the latter gentleman j which
is, that they believe hint a true friend to the in
terefti oi the United State--, a true friend to its
conftitut on, a Sim and true republican, of ho
ne!l and independent lentiments, and a man
wl.n prelides, in his present fta>ion, with the
ftiiiSefl integrity and impartiality This opi
nion, I believe, is alto entertained by the Ver
mont representatives in both bouses of Con
gress. I know also, that every person of libe
ral and honest sentiments, who is acquainted
wit i Mr. Adams, will, and does freely acknow
ledge it to be well funded. I will add, that I
believe Mr. Adams is too honest a man to dif
lemble his political sentiments.
