Indianapolis, April 5.-On Mond»y the

ty Indiana, while in the performance of his ordi

I was shot by James Robertson, one of his neigli
Ijours, who, it appears, had harbored lor some
time personal enmity against Mr. James, and some
other persons in the neighborhood.
It seems that Robertson, after having determin
ed in what manner to avenge himself, transferred
his property, consisting of three 80 acre lots, lo
r.wo small boys. This property was handsomely
situated, and on it he might have lived in happi
_but he had determined on murdering Jauiet
and two other men, and a woman, in the neigh
borhood. After having examined the respective
«esidences of each, with the determination of mur
dering the whole, he crept up privately on .Mr.
James, and shot him; the ball passed through hi?
arm, above the elbow joint, and entered his body at
the lower rib*—the ball lodged in his body. Mr.
.Tames, ran and shouted w ith all his power, which
alarmed the perpetrator so that he had not attempt
to pursue his intentions any farther; but returned
home immediately, and told his wife that she must
go out on the farm and prepare it for a crop for he
did not intend working any more himself; and altei
forcing his wife and family out, lie charged his gun

RICHlVIOBrP, MAY 10, 1323.
For the following interesting Sketch of “ the
Nation's Guest” and of” Liberty’s friend,” we
are indebted to the pen of a literary gentleman at
Charleston, who writes to his friend in Richmond,
under date of April 25:
** Could you have witnessed the variety of in
teresting scenes that occurred—the meeting of the
General with the Pinckmya—his emotion when
addressed by Col. Drayton on ti e part of the Cin
cinnati—the strong display of sensibility when
welcomed to the entertainment prepared by his
fellow-soldiers, by the eloquence of General Tho.
Pinckney—the cordiality of his reception by the
Citizen* at the Public Dinner prepared for him un
der the direction of our excellent Intcndant and the
City Council—and, filially, the enthusiastic ap
plause bestowed by the lovely daughter* of the
toil, when he entered the Hall Room, w here five
hundred Holies of distinguished beauty were assem
bled, your only wonder will be, that my transport
should have ever sufficiently moderated, to address
you again in the plain and simple style of sober
communication. I did hope, and still hope, to be
able to send you Judge De Kattssure’s communication
relative to Lafayette’s reception at Columbia. It
is admirably well done, ami doubly interesting,
because at the conclusion of all the ceremonial
part, he says, “ and why were those honors
shewn?” and then gives you in detail, a particular
statement of all the services that he rendered to
America from the coniiucuecincnt to the conclusion
of our Revolution. Gen. C. C. Pinckney, how
ever, has mentioned to mo one act of Lafay ette’s
which does him infinite credit, which the Judge
would not have known or he would certainly have
noticed.—‘‘When Lafayette arrived and paid his
first visit to Congress, he presented a certificate by
which it appeared that our Agents in France, had
stipulated that he should on joining the Army,
be appointed u .Major General and have a se
parate command. This was decidedly objected
to. and he was told that the agents with whom be
had treated, had far exceeded their pow ors—that
■ General Washington, lit whom they placed implicit
confidence, had been appointed V otutu.inder-in
Chict, and that to appoint him to a command,
free from the control and authority of his superior,
was altogether impossible.” No man, said La
fayette, can more approve rour decision than 1 do.
I ask no commission, I solicit no command till
I have proved my devotion to the cause of
America, and can come forward sanctioned by the
recommendation of the Commander in Chief.”—
The Battle of Brandywine speedily following, he
obtained by bis good conduct, the applause of Gen.
Washington, and by his solicitation to Congress
- the accomplishment of all his wishes.
To the People of the United States, and espe
cially to the Friends of l I'm. II. Crawford
and Andrew Jackson.
Fellow Cjx.ize.ns: These are trying times.
We sec on all sides ambition stretching its mighty
arms, to rilch from us those invaluable rights l'or
which our fa:hers fought and bled. We see a man
m ide President of the U. States, who rightfully re
ceived only 54 votes, in opposition to one who, if
he had not been gambled our of them, would have
got 86 votes, and anotiier who fairly got 84 voles
in the Dlecor.d Colleges. Are you willing to strike
your flag and kiss your oppressor’s feet? I suspect
not. We are freemen, aud our voice shall and
must l>c heard, in opposition to usurpers who cio
late the people's will.
Fellow Citizens, The writer of this has no
views to conceal from you : he has no purposes
which he would not unfold to you, as you will see
in the sequel. “ By him no midnight taper will be
burnt, no secret conclaves held, or cabals entered
. into, to persuade any to a violation of pledges gi
r ven, or of instructions received. By him no plans
| concerted to impair the pure principles of our re
’ publican institutions—nor to prostrate that fun
, damental maxim which maintains the supremacy of
| the people's will.” 11 Demagogues I ant persuad
ed have in times past done more injury to the cause
. of freedom and the rights oi man, than ever did a
Military Chieftain; undin our country, at least
in times of peace should be much more feared.”
’ “ I have seen something of this in my inarch thro*
I life, and have seen some men, too, making the bold
est professions who were more influenced by sel
fish views aud considerations, than ever they were
by the workings of an honest conscience." To
whom does this allude? 1 should insult your un
derstanding by saying to whom—you know him
well. An administration foisted into power by
such means, and composeu of such men, must be ol
short-lived existence. One constitutional term
must e, d it. Von are not willing to be harnessed,
or saddled, and driven or ridden—by such men and
such means. You are tlie salt of the world. In
your power is the great depository of Freedom aud
. Liberty, you stand, by the blessings of providence,
the guardian angel of all fret government. -M’hat
I guardianship you will exercise discreetly and justly ,
I and, I hope, no men and no means w ill deter y ou
from it. How much then depends on you: The
i._._—i.i. f
guish and bitterness, if jou gu-.rd no; the tree oi
Liberty well: Yet you see those harbingers ol
evil striking at the “rool of the tree of Liberty,"
putting to scorn your toill, and “ instructions re
bcllow-Citizens, how stood the vote of the E
Jectoral Colleges ; after clarifying it from all
gambling, management and intrigue? Wm. H.
i rawford 86, Andrew Jackson 81, John Quincy
Adams64. Yes, the admired and enlightened
Cranford—giving him the SO votes of New Y ork,
out of which he was juggled by the slight-of-hand
tricks of two Clayites, and the. 13 of North Car
olina, to which he was fairly entitled, received 86
votes—The fair choice of the American people!
*• By him no midnight tapers burnt, &c. ic. Uc.
“ Nor plans concerted to prostrate that fundamen
tal maxim, which maintains the supremacy of the
people’s will.” Andrew Jackson is fairly entitled
to Hi votes in the Electoral Colleges, the next fair
choice of the American people!
Fellow-Citizens; what I wish is this—Let the
friends of Crawford and Jackson unite in open day.
Let them bid defiance to lamp-burning, “ and
plans concerted.” leet them tell the friends of A
dams and Cjay, that they ire not to be thus trans
ferred, like a parcel of live stock .from one master
to another muster. For me, fellow-citizens, and
I have no doubt, for you, too, it is sufficient, that
we should know that this thing is done that an ad
ministration is now placed over your heads, not by
your choice; and by such men and such means, as
to draw down your opposition to it; to call forth
your frowns and just indignation, against its au
thors, aiders and abettors. Is it not right that
you should speak out, and tell the authors of this
state of things, that they have concerted plans,
“ to impair the pure principles of our republican
institutions;” tha, they have set at nought youi wilt
and your wishes?
I care noi what principles regulate Mr. Adam's
and Mr. Clay’s administration. 1 care not how
they conduct themselves in future.
It is enough lor me to know, that it is an ill
gotten administration, “ begotten in sin, and
brought forth in iniquity.”
1'hcy have lorfeited yt-w eonfidenee; they have
abused your prerogatives.
Ftllow-iCUsens: My object, I repeat, is this;
let there be an understanding broad, open, honora
ble, magnanimous: let the friends of the two above
named candidates, Crawford and Jackson, run their
respective candidates, Mibmit their names again to
tb« avttfiagc* * i ^oj-»ri'-w> people ty a Choice.
By the expiration of the present 4 yean adminis
tration, the Electoral Law will be changed in
many of the state* to tiie district system—a* it now
i*, in New York, and Pennsylvania. The voici
of the people will be more distinctly heard. Kei
the friends of that candidate, who may obtain lea
of the voice of the nation, unite with a magnanim
ity, worthy of ih-in and their candidate, with ti.e
friend* of the lushest candidate in the Klfcetoiul
Colleges. If Crawford gets tlic vote he did in tin
last election—(unfairness out of the way) he will
be the highest and ought to be fairly elected. Il
Jackson gets the largest vote of the American peo
ple, he will be their choice and ought to be fairly
elected. Ifwedonoi then gci our first choice,
wc will obtain our second choice. lustruct jour
representatives and senators, so to amend the con
stitution, as to bring the election to the district sys
tem, and return the election to the Electoral Col
le; ;es, should a choice be not maue in the first in
stance; if not in the second instance, to make sonic
other provision doing away with the election by the
House of Representative*. Your representatives
will not then have the opportunity of disobeying
** pledges given and instructions received.”
The adherent* of Adams and Clay cannot charge
upon us a disposition to thwart the will ol' die peo
ple. It is their wishes we would represent: if ei
ther Crawford or Juckson gets the voic they have
received, they will be the choice of the people.
They ran charge upon us no evil design, for, it is
the will of the people we are endeavouring to pro
tect front malversation. And our object is open,
and avowed, clear a* the noon-day sun. Not con
clave like-,-, -.
Why should we not expect that Crawford and
Jackson will receive an inci eased number of votes'
They have conducted themselves in this election
with becoming decorum. Their characters liave
gained increased lustre in the eye* of the American
people. They know how to repose confidence in
them. They have kept themselves aloof from bar
gain, intrigue and management, to subserve the
purposes of their ad\ancemcnt.
The amiable and firm Crawford will serve his
country at your bidding. “ His health is generally
good*—but he uses a diet to which he is restricted
by his physicians.” His enlightened and capa
cious mind is yet uninjured by the shock of disease
which has afflicted his body. He iove* and regards
the Constitution of this land, and will be your
faithful pilot at the helm of the vessel ol State. He
will not suffer your revered constitution, to be float
ed and tost about by the billows of ambition, and
at last wrecked and torn to pieces on the rocks ot
expediency, and mired in the shoals and quick
sands of corruption, and personal aggrandise
ment. He will, in all probability, be elected to the
Senate ot the U. States, where you will again have
the opportunity of observing the splendor of his in
tellect, and the purity of his heart.
If then we do not get him, the Hero or Orleans
runs in the affection ot the American people. Hon
ored with their confidence, he will repair to the
head of the Government, thereto cleanse the “ Au
gean stable;” corruption and villuinu dare not
approach him. lie will be your faithful servant.
Those who have run counter to your will and
wishes, will return to the shades of private life,
there to “ wail and gnash their teeth.” Then you
n ill see disappointed ambition hiding her gorgon
head, feeding upon its own wrath, and bitterness
ef fecting. You will see the beautiful Tree of
Liberty once more arising from its pressure, spread
ing its brandies to your enamored view—cultivated
and nourished by an ooediei.ee to your will and
wishes. For, the sovereignty of this people and a
due representation of their will and wishes is
the very root of our republican government.
The people of Virginia, North Carolina, Geor
gia, he. ike. &lc. ike—yet love their favored
Crawford. The people of New Jersey, Penn
sylvania, Maryland, South Carolina, Kentucky,
Tennessee, Louisiana. Mississippi, Indiana,Illi
nois, Alabama and Missouri, admire and vene

Let me refer you to the letters lately published,
as haviug past between .Mr. Scott and Mr. Benton
of Missouri.
“Sinister rumors (says Mr. Benton to Mr.
Scott) .nd some misgivings of my own had bee.i
preparing my mind tor an extraordinary deoel
opement j but it was not until 1 had talked with
you face to face, that 1 couid believe iu the reality
of an intention so inconsistent with your previous
conversations—so repugnant to your printeu
pledges—so amazing <o your constituents—sc
latal to yourself. The vote which you intend thut
to give is not your own. It belongs to the state
ot Missouri, they are against Mr. Adams. I in theii
name do most solemnly protest «g .inst your in
tern ions, and deny your moral power thus to be
stow your vote.”
Thus, you see how Mr. Adams was elected. Is
he fairly elected? I deny their moral power thus
to elect him, “ against printed pledges given”_
they arc against .Mr. Adams”—“ It belongs tc
the slate of Missouri.” And, fellow-citizens, this
is not the only state thus transferred by -1 pr 5—
by their representatives, “ against pledges giver
and insiructions received.”
One word more—Mr. Benton is an honourable
and an elevated man, incapable of stating any but
facts, as is said by all who know him w ell.
* See his letter to the citizens of Fredericks.

auspices of Mr. Peter Force. It is really a go

Foreign.—There sre hints in some of the
French papers, that something is brewing in Europe;
but as yet it seems to be more speculation then fact.
The Paris Constitutionel of March 25, says there
can belittle doubt that Great Britain and Russia aie
“ elready in a degree in diplomatic hostilities; that
the Holy Alliance looks upon the movements of G.
B. with a very jealous eye.”—The Journal des
Dtbals, again, hints that G. B. herself views with
no littlejealousy the prolonged occupation of Spain
by French troops; that she has made no secret of
her dislike; and tiiat hence probably, the number is
to be reduced in all to 14000. Another French
paper spe.ks of the sudden arrival of the Ilwnian
General Count Tolstoy at Paris with dispatches
and soon after the Russian’s Minister’s waiting
on the French Minister of Foreign Affairs. In
the long conference which took place between them,
some (Quidnuncs sre disposed to see the signs of
mischief, and of the Russian Cabinet’s spurring on
the French. On the other hand, if Russia and G.
B. sre at points upon other subjects, it is certain
that one source of difference has just healed up._It
is officially announced at St. Petersburg, that all the
differences between them, on the subject of the
North West Coast of America, have been definitive
ly settled by a Convention between Count Nessel
rode and Mr. Stratfotd Canning. The Convention
regulates the limits of the trade and navigation of

been expected as a mutter of com se.
Domestic—The Boston papers complain of the
astonishing pressure on almost all classes* of citi
zens during the last week—So accommodations
and new discounts from the ba k*; and specie to a
very large amount continually- travelling from Sa
lem to Boston , thence to 1 lartlord, back again to
Boston through circuitous channels! The Bunk
capital, instead of being snugly deposited in the
vault, was 44 on wheels travelling about the coun

bank, some rival institution would call for it and
carry it oti again! It was a pretty gc eral impres
sion in town and country, 44 that the present diffi
culty is brought about by the system lately adopted
in Boston by the five associated banks, of taking
bills of the country banks at pur and demanding
specie of those banks in exchange for their bills.”
1 he Hart ford paper furnishes a fact in confirmation
of this opiuion. An agent of several Bunks in Bos
ton presented bills on the Hartford banks to the a
moum of about $50,000—Checks ou the Boston
Banks were tendered in vain! The very next day,
the Hartford banks retaliated; an agent being depu

mr. irushrissojV's speech.
We give place .o the 2d speech of Mr. Hnskis
son on the new measures proposed by the British
Ministers. They are the best documents, we can
po-sess, of the increase of the liberal principles of
the age.— The measures as which have emanated from
the cabinet, propose the removal of various restric
tions on the commerce, shipping and Manufactures
of G. Britain.—They left it to the great class of the
country, t he landed interest, to come forward with its
own plans of reform—and accordingly Mr. Curwon
h <s presented a petition from the principal corn-deal
ers in London (in which he affirmed that he, an agri
cultural member, concurred,) for a revision of the
corn-laws, and for fixing the duty on foreign wheat
a 20s. per quarter.—We hail these indications
of a more liberal spirit with great pleasure.
The Paris Journal des Debats, after quoting a
part of the speech of Mr. Huskisson on the reduc
ion of duties on foreign goods, remarks. « These
tcitationsare sufficient to give an indication oftlie
commercial revolution which the English policy
proposes to effect. The principles of Adam Smith
ire triumphant. Free commerce becomes a bond
of concord and friendship between nations, as this
great economist predicted.”

The President of the United States.

He will find us busily employed in the improve

contributed so essentially to win.
Pennsylvania: Great, virtuous, and indepen

We learn from Cnpt. Israel, of the schooner
Harriett, arrived on Saturday from Porto Rico,
that about the end of March, a Colombian sloop of
war, supposed to be the Bolivar, arrived off Agttitl—
ilia, and sent her boat full 61 men, at 12 o’clock at
night, to endeavour to take the fort that protects the
• own, which they succedcd in doing, having killed
the sentinels. After spiking the guns, and seeing
the town alarmed, they retreated to their vessel.
The next day an engagement ensued between the
sloop of war and the fort, when finding an obstinate
resistance, the Bolivar, after having killed several
men, stood out to sea. [/ft.
