Me. JEFFERSON AND THE AMER ICAN SYSTEM. In Nilea' Regider for 1830 the sub joined letter from Mr. leffarson is pub lished. It was copied from the Rhode Island Literary Subaltern, which states that it was addressed to a distinguished manufacturer and capitalist of Massa chusetts. The sentiments expressed in the letter relative to the protective poli cy are in accordance with the views maintained by Mr. Jefferson in his ear lier life. It appears indeed from a let ler of his written in 1817, and refnrred to by the Register, that he was the au thor ol the term "American System" as applied to the policy of sustaining do mestic industry The annexed loiter is from the Register ol July 3d, 1830: 'Mmticello, May 25, 1823. Dear Sir I have received your letter ol the 10th of this month; and at the same timo wa delivered me by Captain Barlow a piece of domestic fabric called nero cloth, containing twenty six yards for my acceptance and inspection. I thank you for the kind and very flatter ing expressions contained in your letter; and for the handsome present of the cloth, I should be happy to return you something mora solid than empty thanks. I have examined the cloth, and al (hough. I am of opinion that it is well cal culated for Ihe dreis of negro slave, who reside in South Carolina and the more genial climates of the South, 1 am fearful that it would not be found ade quate lo the whii's ol the Virginia slave. For the summer, it would be too warm -for the winter, loo cold; still, if you can improve the fabric by putting a little more wool in the filling, and mixing a little with the warp, I do not know but it might be found adequate to all our purposes. You ask my opinion of the American ystem? Relative to that somewhat ab orbing question, I should hope that the whole of my past life and policy had giv en a satisfactory reply. I have always been of opinion that the people of this nation should manufacture all the fa brics that their exigencies demand, if they can do so, and that they can do so Without applying to thu workshops of England, France and Germany, who will doubt? Cottons and woollens wo make in rare abundance, and of a quality quite good enough to answer all our wants and demands; why then should we trav el to Europe (or our supplies? For our ilks and fine linens, we must lor some time to come go to the workshop ol Eu rope; but I apprehend that the day is not far distant when even they will be manufactured by native industry. You ask my opinion of the merits of Mr. Henry Clay and hi policy for the protection oTdomestic industry and man ulactures. These are questions which I feel some delioacy about answering, first, because Mr. Clay is now a candi dato for the Presidency, and secondly, I never yet fully understood to what ends his policy extends; and although I will ndvanco my opinions relative to the questions you put lo me, I must beg that you will not at this juncture give my views to the public through the press. As for Vlr. Clay, I consider him to be one of the most talented and brilliant men and statesmen lhat the country has ever produced, and should I live many year longer, I hope to see him hold the place of the thiel executive of the Amer ican republic, lln career, thu far in life, has been a career of glory, and he has achieved that for his country, whilst engaged in her cause, which would or nament the brightest place in the escut cheon of the most favored statesman of any age or nation I say thus much in reply to your interrogatories, but, as 1 1 aid before, I do not wish to have my re j mark given to the press, for the aim pin reason that this country is involved in a political excitement, of which I am not disposed lo lake part, as I have long tnce resolved not to take part in the politics of the times. My wrist, which ii quite lame, admonishes me to discon tinue this hattv note. With assurance of the most perfect respect. I am your obliged le'lnw citizen, THOMAS JF.l'THRSON." The manner in which Mr. Jefferson here poak of Mr. Clay would lead one to suppose that the Kentucky statesman was regarded as a good democrat by the head of the democratic school It is true that Mr Clay was so regarded; he was one of the leaders of the democratic party, and thp foremost champion of the war under Madison. He was a prnmi nent leader of the Democratic parly when he upheld the Tariff of 1810- taining domestic industry , a national in Iwife. The generous and nob's hearted siitution to give an equitable and sound Cyrus, moved :o tears, gave life, liberty currency supported and carried by the democracy of 1816, are now reckoned as abominations in the eyes of the democ racy of 1843. How is this? Mr. Clay, laboring in the same cause which calked forth hii gallant efforts a) a democratic leader nearly thirty years ago. is no longer to be deemed a democrat, w hilo Mr. Calhoun, who has abandoned every principle of Madiaonian democracy which he once supported, is now a darn ocrei and an aspirant lo the Presidency, under lhat name, Well, this is strange to say the least of it. The democracy of the present day is so different from Ihe oM democ racy of the last war thai any one adhe ring to the latter is called a federalist for his consistency . Modern democracy dates from the Jackson era. It signal ized itself by destroying every thing which the democracy of Jefferson and Madison had established. I there a single measure of policy which it found in existence that it did not diiturb? Great must be the potency oi a name and wise must they be who wear it, il it is to be regarded as a sufficient reason for inconsistencies and absurdities as gross and palpable as ever startled com mon seme.

Text. The word of God, as vou may find recorded in the epistle of Paul, Ihe Apoitle to the GaUnans, sixth chapter and second verse: "Bear ye one annth er's burdens, and so fuljil the law of Christ" "In the day that tried men's souls," when the Roman Empire, emerging from the sea nf persecutions which she had rolled over young Christianity, was herself about to become revolutionized to the roligion ol Jesus Christ, one of the most daring, able, eloquent and perse vering enemies of the Apostles and their immsdtate successors, after resisting ev ry argument, was finally silenced by one which ias ona'iswerah'e, one which ho could not gainsay and which sealed his month forever. What that argu ment was I will express in the words of an Apostle: "I e are our apostle, seen and read of all men 11 To (his champion of infidelity were pointed out the lives and examples of hundreds and thousands of once poor, ignorant, benighted, and besotted heath en, now living in order, uprightness, ho n or and sobriety, wnh a complelo and glorious change of character, exhibited in a'l their lives, relations in lile and leelings nf heart, and this one argument convinced him of the trulh of the reli gion ol the cross ! And, my brethren, if we live accord ing to the spirit of Christianity, whn unable by argument, Ichors, tears and prayers in subdue ihe pride and shut Ihe mouths ol adversaries, we have this one argument us a Inst resource, we can point to christians, surrounded with all the beauty and g'ory of their christian character and ask "what but a true r ol i gion has done all this?'' We can point to H aa an unlniling source ol Ihe lean chrisiianity ever band what she thought ol the gracious conqueror, she answered thai she did not see him. Not see him! was the re joinder of blank astonishment. '! cnuld only ee." said she, "the man who said he would give all his treasures and his life for me!" So chrisiianity only sees and prizes the face and example of ihe blessed Je sus, as seen in the conduct and daily walk of christians. When a certain learned traveller visi ted Athens in iis proud day ol magnifi cence and glorv alter having sen lis peerless temples, monuments of art and columns ol historic glory, and whatever was rare and generous in th it universi ty of ihe world, he w is asked tiy on l he had seen Socrates, he said no. Then you have not seen Athens, was the an swe r ! So in Christianity, if nn has not seen Jesus, he has seen nothing of religion. If he ha not seen ihe examp'e ol ihe one who bore ihe burden ol our sins for us, shining forth in the daily live of christian il he has not leeu them also like Christ bearing each other's burdens and so fu filling the law of 'hrist. he h' seen nothing of irue, pure and bless d religion! Christianity shows brotherly kind ncss and ihe examples nfehrUnan ion as her iewels. They are ihe n fleeted features of Jesus, Ihe Lamb ol God. shining through his children and fol lowers. 11 the world were in flames, what lre sure would Ihe christian seek to bear away from the ruin?

(and they must bo very lew ) I shall be compelled to bid ynu adieu once more and perhaps re we meet ag un a change may have passed over u and our meet nig may be in a world of spirits, I can ii ul but feel that this is the lasl chance I sliall have- to address you on ibislneine and pros on your christian hearts the duty of bearing each other's burdens! The first burden we are to bear of our brethron is a scrupulous conscience ' con cerning many things thai are not, in them selves sinjul. This scrupulous conscience sometimes extends to manner, dress, personal ap pearance, and a disposition to place un due weight lo trifles, to see mountains where mole. hills only exist. Much ol this overscrupulous conscience arises, nol from the injunctions of the word of Gud, or the leaching ol the Spirit; but Irom a want ol knowledge ol human na ture, Irom early religious prejudices and other causes This ci nsoriouaness arises reaily irom a sciupulous conscience and nol a bad hearl, and should, therelore, be bomo with by more liberal christians as a burden. Some of this class of christians, if iheir leelings could be fully curried out, would impugn all wno are not exactly like them, in U'ents, dress manners and general deportment if not cut after ihe same pattern and moulded from the same b'ock they pronounce al once that they are nol christian. Such condemn a preacher ior the cul ol his coal and pronounce hi. manner ami christian in the nut pit it lie does not stand bill up right look as g um and solemn s a grave stone- especially does he sin il he act natural and easy in the pulpit and has any nature and grace in his gesture; it is al once pronounced iheairica1, for getting thai ihe In si ac'ors in a theatre iniike nalur their copy, and to call a minister theatrical is only, in olhet words, io call his manner naium ! A gnod old Udv was once so enamored of a preacher who sung out his sermons through his iioe thai she could not bear 10 hear anv one who had nol ihe samej "godly iwmig. (Sin -l's liang ng tnrich clusters on hundreds of cheeks ) j Some cry nui.O for ih gnod o'd days 1 of Methodism! whi n ihey all wor" those BIOS behind and will remember them no more forever and so should we (org'-t s we!' a forgive if we have one psr -tide of tbe pint of God and Christ about u. Some people prore tohe christum love who love very strangely ! In Ibeir t . J I ik treatment ol wcik or oacKsiioiug "'' ren, they always remind me of the Qua ker, who, angry with his dog, said, "I will nol kill thee; but I will give thee s bad name"- whereupon turning hi dug out of doors, he rsied the cry of mad dog, and the multitude soon killed him and the quaker sid to (he cruelly slaughtered animal, well dog, ihou csnst not say thai I ever gave thee s blow! Li christian feel that ihe bd namw the slight mention the half uttered suspicion mske un the lata! bio was the name killed the dog. Christians should never forget that they mubt love all friends andensmies all together that they must forgiv those who have trespassed against them, with, or without, repentance on the part of the wrong doer clear their mind of any wrong or hard feeling, and leave the sin at the door of others, if on wri9ro. The great curse of the church in ths present age ts tattling and slander. Gud remove it far from our borders. The second law ol Christ we fulfil hv i bearing one another s, burdens nine law of kindness. "Be kindly BflVctionod. one towards another," is the tacred injunction. And how wretchedly i this regarded when It Amen! to some parts of the serm n J The objection lo shouting mnde by those who cannot bear ihe burden of their brethren in thi practice is that it has no meaning and no intellectuality in it and is dectdudty loo much ol the animal, 1 believe all ibis difference in the modes of making public manifeiiation of feelings, srist entirely irom the differ ent organization ol men. I have known some men who could not be happy, or have the leal extraordinary njossssat without shouting aloud. Some can be sippy in no oiher wav . And so it is in atiditie inauileautioiis of sorrow, two widows may be bereaved of their hu bands in the same day, having equal af leciion and feeling equal degree ol or row, and the one shall disracl snd n iuze the neighborhood with her shrieks. cries, Indentations and tear, while the other is as silent as the chill form in death she ssmnssj and ac's ill ihe live long day "like patience on a monument smiling atgnel!'' Both of these only act oui of ihe peculiarities of their na ture, Religion doe nol change the outward color, the sttipe. or the characteristics ol the animal part ot our natures. It only puts the passion in check; it tears them not oui by Ihe roots, leaving the man a monk or a hermit insensible In surrounding influence. As general rule to pp'y to various j religious exercises, thi i good one;' whatever has. right u.flueoce on ihe wiln lhe errori, (bu,.. weakness, mind is right. I ,,, rhap ignorance of an absent brother. Although I never could bear vu'gartiy r)(1. ,ne thought ever occur to such in shouting, low expressions, and my ! ,anoor(,r, what a pretty fix we should nature has a perlect horror at me pri. ; be m jf g( )h momPnt, 0rne one were lice I have seen of jumping when under nsmP, and character with ths i r..t I ...,.-.! hi I 6. . . . , same fieedum we use our aoieot oro- excitemenl ol feelings, still I would be nnd am very cautious in guarding my feelings against any severe prejudices, against any one in regard lo any such pculiarilie. If such are strangers, I ask of competent persons lhe qneslion. are they good men? are thev chritians? If 1 get an answer in Ihe affirmative, I am bound to bear wnh thorn still, even under such infirmities! Another burden which the fol'owers of lhe cross are to bear ol each other, is ihat morose and gloomy temperament! which olteniime results from lossos, j long continued disappointments, loss of i health , or secrot causes on whom no eye hot (iod's ran rest.

There are diffetoncei in ths msuusia and discouraged temperament ol some christians whom wo would ever have with us on the mounl of rejoicing, does nnl arise Irom a had heart. They have disease-ihey have the weariness of manifold lemptaiions lo huffet, and iheir burdens too must be borne by their fel low christians'.

The vail audience be. came melted and tearful under the thril ling appeals, while the Professor closed his sermon of an hour and a half, in du ration with sentiment like tbe follow ing; My dear brethren and sister! At long as your Savior lorgives you , so long and so often do you forgite others Do you not have to ask God's forgiveness ever day, even to the end or your lives? You cannot be like God in wisdom- knowledge and power; but you all can i presses certain thatoiherswill not forgiveihetr wrongs This ever depresses and drive some even to despair. Indeed when I witness the conduct of some christians towards those who may have haekslidden and offended, I am per petually reminded of the words of our Savior; "let him that is without sin can lhe firsi sinn !" .Some people hv never made a ilip-'aud never will'- Oh, be like him in lorgivenei: uo lorgive and love one another and emulate ihs good old apotle John, who, when blind and above a hundred years old, when they would lead him out lo church, would still preach up christian love nd when his strength was so far gona that ho could not preach but a few words his sermon would ever he "Litila chil dren, love nne another'."
