Cralle, Esq. ] We happened, a few Jays ago, to lay our hands mi a No. of the “ Washington Reformer,” dated May 31st, 1837—and we were absolutely astonished, when we compared the mne of its editorials with those which now appear, from the pen of the same gentle*nan, in the pages of the W ashington Chroni cle. Aware, as we were, that of all the opponents ol the present administration, not one had been more unrelenting and bitter iri his hostility than that gen tleman,—for whom, by I he way, wc entertain the highest personal respect, confident that his change ol opinion is attributable to any other than corrupt motives,—we were yet not prepared for such ran corous denunciation and such unsparing invective, as wc found displayed before us in that paper. As it is sometimes uselul to hold t mirror up to one who scciiim to have loigotten “ wh.it manner of man he was,” W3 hope our fiiend ol the Chronicle will not think we deal too hardly with him if we call his attention to a catalogue and brief description of the editorial articles which appeared in the Reformer, of the 31st May, 1837. L 1’lie leading article is headed “Corruptions of the Administration ;’’ and is devoted io an exposure ol the course pursued by the ” Royalist" majority ol the Committee ol Investigation, appointed under Mr. Wise’s celebrated resolution ol enquiry into abuses alleged by him to exist in the administration ol the government. And never have we read a more glow ing pourtiay al of the base means by which that investigation was stilled,—stilled, as the Reformer declares, by the “ petjury and corruption of the Royalist” majority of the Committee: Never have we seen more indignant feeling manifested, at the escape ol the guilty, thus screened by the conduct ol unprincipled partisans, Irom the punishment <1 tie lo their offences against Patrioti>m and Morals !— And yet, with all these “Corruptions” uuatoued for, and unciadicated from our political system,— what do wt* behold 1 The editor of the Reformer, now the editor of the Chronicle, stands forth the cham pion of the men by whom they were pci petrated—a main pillar of the administration, which, by his own show mg. is guilty of enormities that it dare not expose , to public scrutiny ! ! And all this because he happens to concur with it in opinion that the Sub-Treasury is the best financial system which it ( an adopt—a mere hypothesis, at best; which expeiiencc may demonstrate to he unsound anti pernicious, as the same great teacher has so often done heretofore in reference to “Experiments,” brought forward with equal boldness, and avouched with equal confidence ! The next editorial article in the Reformer, is headed “ Effrontery !” ami is devoted to a criticism upon a letter of Senator Silas Wright of N. V. to a portion of the people ol iJurhiigtoii, Vermont, by whom that distinguished mouth piece of the ad I ministration had been invited to partake of a public dinner. Mr. WTight having talked much of “ democ racy” in his letter, (as is the habit of those who seek to gull the people by plastering unpalatable in°a I sines with a popular name,) the Reformer thus rc i bakes him : ” It appears to us to require something moic than ordinary audacity for these advocates ni Royal prerogative and power to prate about 4 demo cratic principles;’ but it has ever been thus: those i who propose to deceive the people must of course play upon their prejudices.”—And now, forsooth, I the late editor of the Reformer is hand and glove 1 with Senator Wright, and echoes all his cant about | 44democracy,” while he. upholds "these, advocates ! of Royal prerogative and power”! How does the editor of the Chronicle account for this sudden transformation? Has the advocacy of the Sub | Treasury scheme atoned for all past oll'ences ? Has it obliterated the Leopard’s spots, and washed 1 the ;F.thinpiau white ? 3. Tho third editorial of the Reformer exhibits the ! 44 Magic of Power”—excoriating some of the “ Roy j alist” presses for their sycophancy. “ This tran scendency of servility,” (says the Reformer,) 44 was reserved for our modern J ckson-Van Rnren-Demo cratic- Republicans”—of whom die imlilcr of this | sneer is now amongst the foremost ! 4. The fourth article abuses the administration for , their Currency experiments, and especially their | “ idle and ridiculous specif, circulars." It denounces the administration as a set of“ blunderers and block heads,” not one of whom was “ fit for the crisis.” < >f Mr. Viin Horen, it said, ** he is utterly imbecile, ignorant, and knows not what to do, or where to nun; he ought to resign and go home.” It declar ed that the ” whole concern would go by the board, and be allowed to concoct their petty schemes on some more confuted theatre of action, where their blunders will not so deeply affect the interests of j the country and that there never was ** such an | exhibition of madness and folly,” as “ a Treasury of I Hank credits m the hands of 4U,00l) office-holders” ! | And now what do we see? The editor of the Chronicle going against a repeal of the Specie Cir cular—leagued with these “ blunderers and block heads,” wim, he seems to suppose, are admirably fitted for the crisis—of course believing that Mr. V an Huron, instead ol being “ imbecile and igno rant,” is a wise and sagacious statesman, and should I remaiu where lie is, instead ol going home,—bene* j fimng bis country by his ability, instead of prostra - ! mfi ds interests by Ins blunders ! And although “ a ! Treasury of hank credits in the hands of 10,000 office-holders,” may bo madness, yet a Treasury ol | (j /1 unit »/i iedits, in the vnno bauds, I , the n( plus i ui'ia ut human wisdom, in the science ol limin' i ' V Hut to the fifth anjcle, „|„ch ls |lr.„le,| „ AV-tr-V 1.. tins art,cle tie Richmond F„,)u * is castlg itetl for " prating about a Nation.,| |5 which the Reformer correctly stigmatise,I a, old key-note of miserable demagugueism." .,|,| ,* "* its successor, the Chronicle, is now ringing the ' l ges on the same worn-out tune. In re, n ,I” lemark of the Kncpiirer, "If we are to har'c rr National llank, give us one under a cliHete• ganization," the Reformer broke out in the follow ^ indignant strain: '"S “Aye, the clovrn-fool—the eliiven-f0„i ii the cloven foot. This" Ul KFK R |; \ c , r>l f /ATION” IS a verv potent and pregnant"A 1 What stilt of an “ ORGANIZATION" ' sirable?—one in which our Royal Master "t ' obedient vassals, shall have tbe 111 Another Kxciiccii i n project? \ |, A°'*,rul ’ ed on the National Treasury, with grafts'/ 'I1'1’* etl in the Slates, anti nourished by tlnA,'l*1*/ 1,11 crals of the Kitchen Cabinet?

Arc these to be the epithets under* color of which the Government is p> |,e culim, ed into a vast banking machine, with Mr. Van lfu ren and the Kitchen Cabinet at the head of ,, i Dr if these projects fail, are we to be carried bark t„ listen to the old song of the rotatory Senatoi ;,hllllt a mktai.lic cirri mV? Is this humbug p, place of the " uloriocs Kxpkrimknt And so on, through a column more. And wb> could have supposed that the writer ol this par:, graph would rver have been funud,—much less mthe brief space of twelve months,—fighting under i|,u banners of “ our Royal Master,” jo,dug m tbe elm rus ul the " Renton, ,u scribblers," against " Rank nought aristocrats,” and in favor ol the humbug ol ,» metallic currency ? Yet it is even to. How short sighted is the most gilied ot our race! Had the lAtlU Magician revealed to the editor of the AV/or nier, on the 31st of May, 1$J7, (lie “ position” w Inch, as editor of the Chronicled^ would occupy on theUIst of May, 18-38, he would have spurned the prophetic revelation with indignant scout. II e ran hardly be lieve the evidence of our own senses: We should ccttainly have been incredulous lu the voice of pro phecy. 6. The sixth aitii lr hi the editorial department of the Reformer has tUis caption: “ The nerl dent" and is designed to prevent a division in tho WHIG ranks, then seemingly tlircatened by tie premature discussion of the rival pretensions of Webst cr. Clay and Harrison. Listen to what our * late ally,” w ho now pretends that he never was a Whigi s.iiil in May, lw37 : “ We would earnestly and calmly call upon I'.h lots friendly to a reform of existing abuses, to pause and reflect before they proceed I’mtlier.

No, no. The voice of reason and path otism, iV the strong sense of mutual danger, demand that all hands should first unite to save the slup from foundering. The s duty and security of each J and of all require that every mail should /iist put ilns hand to this work. Let us save the disman tled and leaking vessel first ;—and when, by uni j led efforts, we have rescued her from her present dangerous position, and are again riming securely before the w ind, it will be time enough to inquire who sha'I take the place of the present ignorant and incompetent commanders.” Is there, in this par 'graph, any thing to lead the | reader to suppose, that, in less than twelve in mtli.*, ! the writer of it would he denouncing Mr. ( 'lay as a Hank-man and an Abolitionist—and Mr. Webster, as dangerously latitudinous in the construction of the constitut ion, vV an Abolitionist likew ise ? Where now are the “ hopes of the Reformers” ! Why, il the wri ter of the foregoing paragraph wt re now to give us ad vico it would be to perpetuate. “ existing abuses,” in 1 stead of reforming them, and to uphold the “ ignorant ! a id competent commanders,” by whom the barque at I State had been plunged amidst breakers and quick I sands! He must excuse us, however, it we prelev another pilo(*-otw who knows the channel too well | to«chatige his course thus suddenly, in tin- midst of .* raging storm—running directly upon a point, where* j but a moment ago, he told us that we were in danger of being stranded or engulphed. 7. The seventh of the Reformer's editorials is de voted to “ the Kitchen Cabinet,” whom it excoriat ed in its usual style of uncompromising severity, as “despicable sans culottes," with whom “honorable i and high-minded men could not consult.” In rr f fence to Mr. Van Huron and Ins confidential auvi sets, the Reformer quotes the following line* ot the indignant satirist, which it said might be applied with equal justice to our President as to the flnmU minister, Walpole: “ l.o! where he stands, amidst tiro servile crew,— “ \<> hlu-dies stain his cheek with •’riinson line , u While dire corruption all around In spreuds, “ \nd cvi rv ductile conscience captive leads ; “ Bribed by bis boons, behold the remit hand “ It unship the idol they could once command We deeply regret, as all who know the editor °l the Chronicle must mnivel, that lie can now associ ated with, and sustain men, against whom, within so brief a space, he wrote such bitter things. nut we must p.mse.
