r c Wednesday, Feb. 18, 1801. I v.^ c ON TUESDAY. At 12 o'clock the 35th ballot was taken; the refult the fame with that of the preced ing ballots. At I o'clock the 36tb ballot was taken, . •which iflued in the elcclitdi pi 1 IjOJIaS ' JLFFERSOtf. Oil this ballot there were, 10 States for Mr. 'fsfcr-on, viz. Vp'\ mont, New York, Nes-jerf/.y, P oniyl vanis- M rylnnd, Virginia, North Carolina,} Georgia, Kentucky, -and Tenneflec. 4 States fir M . Burr, viz. Rhode ll land. New Hampshire, CaiinetTacut, and ' M^iTichufetts. 2 States vited by blank ballots, viz. Delaware and South Carolina. In the inltance of Vermont, Mr. Morris J withdrew. In that of Sonth Carolina, Mr. Hnger, who is underllood previouily uniformly to have voted for Mr. J-fferfon, alio With drew from a fpirit of accommodation, which enabled South (Carolina to give a blank vote. And in the inftance of M. viand, four votes were for Jefferton and lour blank. The voice of the People has prevailed, and Thomas kk.rson is -.1 by thij Reprefctitati ves ot the iVoplc to bo July -lefted Prelidcnt of the uint .1 States. It follows, from the d .firm o' the coni'litution, that Aaron Buhk is ■ ( ele£l d Vice-Prelident. In addition to the many evidences of the fup-riority of repu'ol lan inft.Uitiou over thofe of the monarchic or aiiftocra tic form, this honorable regard to tile public will. exprefTed with cala n is and in' t'c >idity will produce an imp.relliqp on the minds of the People of America, ftronger than that attempted to be made by the uncealing eulogifts ol other ly>- tems. To thofe unfounded reproaches againfl: rep iblicanifm, that afcribe to it the pre dominance of turbulent pallions, and ani imbrcilitv to meet with effect a crius ot' danger, it will with exultation oppofe thej proa 1 example of a people of live millions,, l'c itt red over a wide extent ot country,| peaceably electing a chief magi finite, audi - the reprelentatives of that people, c mllitu-! tiom lly confirming the national will. Will not this memorable example de-' ( mottdrate to every citizen, who heretofore doubted it, that the will of a people en-j lightened as are the people ot A nerica, is j as fulceptible of precife and unequivocal expreflion as that ot an hereditary Uelpotj or a military ufurper, and .hat when foex < pre,l'd ic has power to command trom itsi filent energies a general acquieicence. Let then from this era all dobt of the fitnefs of a republican fyftem to anfwer every correct purpofe of government be d fluffed ! Let it yield to the magnanimous polity of giving to that fyftem all the ilrp port of undivided zeal and united talent. Let the government in its pure principles, guarding the rights of freemen from mvafion. and diffufing through all ranks the blel- , fiags of equal rights, be the object of oin , invariable refpe£t and regard. Let not the aberrations of public agents from c ouftitu- , tional duty be confounded with thofe prin- , ciplss; and above all things let not public meu, who fliall be the firft to mark a de- , viation from fuch principles, be denomi- 1 natod the government itlelf. This error, wilful with lome, but milta- | ken with more, has had a deeper agency j, in iepretling the character of repur>licanifm,,l that] all the niiftakes of its friends and ho- \ ftility of its enemies.
