WILLIAM GLOVER. * Jan. 14. VIRGINIA ARGUS. RICH \T O JYI) : MONOAY, JANUARY is, ISIS. The federal prints evince, by their how ling, that they feci the force of the u *\v anpointments in tlie War and Navy offices. Cen. Armstrong, in particular, seems to bujreaded. Mr. Junes i i denounced as an which, bv the wav, is no mean comp^mbnt to the Presi dent far selecting him It as precisely an old sea-captain—that is, a practical nautical man, that is wanted as the successor of Mr. Hamil ton. The l.vul-toj's will he compelled to hop of from this son of N'< ptttnc. It is obvious, from the abuse poured out in a c -rtai i scandalous Chronicle, that William Pinkney, < sq. AttorneyM «er.d of tlie United Stutes, is rising in the puBire estimation. The nonrense published in all the journals of the d*v, under the title of the* 2J.b bulle t.n of tiie* Crand French Army, turns out to he a complete </uiz. Tlie Uriish accounts of the Ntipolc viis s having evacualcd .Moscow appears to be doubted. The subject of impressment seems ft pre sent very much to occupy public .'.Mention. Our Essayists are going into the stibji ct at great Icngtli. This Would he ' rv wll if it were likely to make the least impression upon tlie enemy. What is^bielly wanted at thi time, is not argument* toqAove At we arc in the right on this head, demoustraie that we are able to mnnkhin ti\\ght. It is saul Mr. Randot^A has®cely spoken three hours, in a most Wi-yui, against the war. It is, however, one thing to speak e loqucntlv, and another to speak aer.tihlf. We have frequently had occasion to remark, that men generally can talk most about tliat which they least understand. The C.azcttcs which opposed Mr. Madison’s re-election arc very consistent in continuing' to oppose him alter his sticress’is fully ascertain ed. The Molumhian, indq^l, withes to find an apology for its snarling jMtlie trien.llv criti cisms ofprints that supp<>rtli<ra'.lminis'ration ; but the Albany Register is lathing but Worml wood. The latter, as it exhibits more ability, may, perhaps, be allowed to have more I,if er nes*. Those who preach up union, however, ought to cultivate tlic sentiments which I ad to union. Reproaches, and a knack of pourtrav ing in dark colors every little unfavorable acci dent, are not calculated to qnnciliatc. It is remarkable, th .t it waflBhe boast of the Itritidi not long since, that the retreat of th. French army from Moscow was cut off/ and that the last accounts positively assort that they had retreated. One or the other of these things must be false s^ju^icrhapj, they may both be so. GENERAL «1YTH. This officer has been trej^tced as a trai tor, and a coward. The first charge does not seem applica ble to an officer who lias (lone much more than his duty required to have a sufficient force to act against the enemy ; whose troops have been generally successful, and who lias COST NOTH ING. The second charge can be best decided on bv those who have seen General Smyth in danger. Col. Winder, Lieut. Angus of the Navy, Lieut. T. B. Randolph, Doctor Young, Doc tor Branough and 1). ctor Reynolds, have very lately seen Gen. Smyth expose his life. If these gentlemen will say that there is in existence a man who exposes his life to imminent danger with more tranquility than General Smyth does, he' will quit the ser vice. Shall the reputation of an officer be (lc B'royed because talse, Asigniag, and un principled men unjustly aWose him, and are echoed by an uninformed Slid seditious rab ble ?
