City, Thursday Evening, April 8.—A report is In
circulation, which is countenanced by the French Jour
rials, that a communication Iras b ecu opened between
the Poles and the Turks, and that Envoys have been
mutually sent from Warsaw and Constantinolpe. i( it be
true that the Sublime Porte has sent an Envoy to War
saw, hostilities between Russia and Turkey may be
considered as certain, indeed such a step on the part
ol the latter Power, amounts to a declaration ol war. It
is, "‘ met, entering into a l iendly negotiation with the
revolted subjects »l tbo Emperor ol Russia. For our
part, wo aho Id not bo at all surprised it Turkey took
advantage ot the present state of things, and attempted
to get rid ot the debt amt disgrace inflicted upon her by
the Czar. 3

THE NEW CAHINE1'.
Willi the President’* propositions for a modified Ta
riff—with his Veto Message, arresting a strong flood of
local mischief—with hi* double protest against the
Hank of the United States —wth all theic staring us
In the face, wo are asked what good wo arc to expect
from Gen. Jackson ! —And this question is propound
ed by the friends of Mr Clay ! \V0 retort the ques
tion with a hundred fold force, and we ask what good
arc we to expect from that ultra-politician1 What
mercy is the Constitution to expect from the Author of
the American System? from the reckless advocate of
a wide-sweeping system of Int-rnal Improvement, even
down to the Maysville Road—and from him, who once
exposed Hie glaring, unconstitutional ovigin of the U.
s. Hank, and thtn became its hold and unblushing Ad
vocate .’—Even if (Jen. Jackson should visit us with
win.*, Mr. Clay would chastise us with scorpions.
Hut, if (Jen Jackson has done some good, in behalf
of <ihc Constitution—if ho has raised his voice against
somool the abuses of the Tariff, and some of the abu
ses of appropriation,—wo must, we may yet look for
more. A new Cabinet is coming in—and the move
ments of the Administration w ill, of course, be watch
ed with much curiosity. What benefits may not they
render to an anxious country? Let us seize the pencil,
and hastily, and frankly, sketch off some of the articles
of our own Creed—Some of the leading principles,
which, it is hoped, will guide the Administration.
The time is coming, when the truo theory of (hi,
Constitution is to be brought to its test.—tf it fails, then
“clouds & dark ess rest upon us.” The Union iiselfuny
pass under one of (he deepest Eclipses which has ever
obscure I it.—The South will never submit to a contin
ued system of exaction, for the emolument of ome
manufacturing sections —Let it once bo understdhd,
that (his Government is to be so changed from the ori
ginal purposes of its formation, ns that, in spite of the
spirit or th : restrictions of the Charter, a revenue is to
be raised on the J-oulli, for the benefit of the North—
tha' (axes are to he laid, not or the purpose o! paying
o(l the de'.t, and the necessary expenresof the («ov
eminent, but to carry on a great and splendid scheme
of Internal Improvement-to raise from the States, and
tlrcti to distribute a large surplus among them—to pay
oil their debts, romraclcd lor the purposes of mak n<'
their own roads and canals—and pay oH'millions ol pen
sion money—Then, indeed, will the rub come.—The
Jxmtli will not submit to such a state of tilings. The
next Congress may bo the pariod ol tiial. If t should i
be round, that they will not modify the Tariff—that
they are determined to maintain it in all its excesses—
that even the extinction of the public debt, is not to be
the signal of a reduction ol the Tariir to merely the
necessary point of expenditure, we look forward to a
great change in the tone of the whole Southern People
not to speak ol other sections of the Union. Efficient
means will, in all probability, be employed to produce
a pull, and a strong pull, mid a pull altogether.”_
\ special ( o -.volition may be called for the purpose ol
co-operation and of action.
Among some ol the leading principles, therefore,
may we not hope lor the following, as the lights of the
Administration ?

tion
•* Rigid Economy, and as speedy an extinguish

5 The Executive power reduced as far as possible
—and the election of President to be made by the peo
ple, or their specially constituted Elector*, and to lie
tal.en out of the If. of R.—and the tenure to be con
s'ltutfonally limited to one term.
(» Appropriations to be defined to the u'most possible
point o( specification—all expenditures beyond that
point to be arrested—and all abuses of money, trusts,
ftt., to bo reformed.
7 None but tho very highest appointments to be
conferred by the Executive Department, on Members
ol Congress, (thus preserving the freed in of popular
Election)—and as few as possible given to the Con
ductors of the Press, (thus preserving tho liberty of
the Press.)
8 Removals to ho conducted cn liberal principles
&c.,&c. r ’
May we not h'pe that these card n^l poinb will he
nllowed a« near and as much as po-eiblr. The rlo«er
w<-cans irk to them, w-- humbly think the better will
it b* for the coun’ry and her eonfilu'ion.
Hut we have before us a letter, from an intelligent
Hopublican, which says so many good things, that he
must excti*e us for presenting a lew of them to the
public consideration :
‘‘If par ies are ever again <o rally on clear and well
defined principles, it will be when tho NallonaHTcbt is
extinct, and tlm quos'ion is fairly put to the people
wi'l you he taxed for any thing beyond what is neces
sary to an economical administration of your govern
ment?—May we not fear, however, that in the mean
lime,by a corrupt system ol log-rolling - a conspiracy of
Particular intensts; these will have been made to ap
pear or at least will have acquired power to prevail a
gainst the general welfare, and the fundamental doc
trines of the Constitution? Ought not this administra
tion then at once to come out clearly and unequivocal
ly on these great points—can any ono assert the true
principles of the constitution with so much hope of sue
c:-ss as he in whose patriotism of purpose, and readiness
f > risk himself for his country,nil must hove confitlnicc7
Ect, then, the New Cabinet, disdaining to enquire a
bout or listen to informers, as to the opinions entertain
ed of men by poor subordinate clerks ami tide woi
trrs, go at once unequivocally and thoroughly lor econ
omy and strict construction; as tho sheet anchors, that
alone can save us from vir ual consolidation,misrule and

reference to the opinion of the people, and this is strong
evidence, that the (Jencral and In* Secretary of Stale
have confidence in their popularity."
The same suspicion* arc sown elswhcrc— A Torres
pon >nt of tlie Nasi,ville Herald also remarks that 'll I
Mr* v- ",,rpn has ceased to he Secretary of Stale, w ith !
a view to he made V. President at the next election '
and with the further expectation, that the President will I
(trow indicated during the first year of his term, so as
to render it expedient to retire to Ids farm, and leave
the second in command at the head alf.irs— It would
then appear that there was more ot eunn na iUa» „»I
ict me propagators ol the Kep,„t rut j
satisfied— Mr. V. B. will not bo rOn for (lie Vice-Presi
dency at a'l, and (hero is an end o( tlio matter. —Mr. V.
H. would indeed l>o the arch Magician ho ha* been
called, if lie could thus cheat (Jen Jackson, out ol com
mon aenso ami common honesty. As the Charleston
Patriot well observes: “It is astonishing how tar our
speculating politicians, who iodito epistles for the news
papers, can look into tuturity. The faculty ol political
divination has been cultivated by (hem with so much
‘success, that they can foretell the combinations w hich
any succession of circumsta c s may produce six or
eight years lienee, with marvellous hardily. I bus, we
have been informed, that IVir. Van Burtn, speculating
on lie President's possible infirmities, looks forw id to
the period, after being elected Pire-President, w hen
he will slide with ease into the K.xeculivu sent. Now,
hero aie I.mj contingencies w hich enter into this pro
iound calculation. First, .Mr Van Huren is to ho elud
ed Vice- President; ami secondly, the President is to be
afflicted with such bodily ailment, that he will bo uii
able to perform the functions of Chief Magistrate. We
have heard Mr. Van Bunn called the Magician, but
hi* spells must surpass all prev oils potency, it he can
first charm himself iuto the ( hair of Vice-President,
and then charm Gen. Jackson out ol thutnt President.”
Ami he must ba equally a great Magician, whose In
canta'ions can extend I lirec I housaml Miles, across
the Atlantic—and when Minister to London, can witch
and work the President into tho use ol Ins high ollice
lor the exaltation of Mr V. » to the next Pri shlency.
" hen Mr. V. IJ. crosses the Atlantic, it is really "to
ho hoped (hat all such insinuations against Gen. Jack
sen will bo dissipated into thin air.
■/t llrrezc !—\V hen a particular cliaugo was made in
Mr. Madison’s Cabinet in 1311, Mr. Gideon Granger
w'as asked, “ What effects it would have ?”—Shrug
ging his shoulders, “ 1 suppose (says lie,) ire are to
have a breeze.”
" 0 suppose, from the present signs of the horiz'ui,
that wo arc to have another breeze. Ono of the Balti
more Opposition papers calls it 11 another explosion.”
I heN. Intelligencer says, that “ To tho Letter of
Mr. Branch, it is rumored, will toon be added an expo
sition, by Mr Ingham, of the causes of (lie late disso
lution ol the Cabinet. No commentary can add force to
the expressions made use of by Mr. Branch. Any at
tempt, on the contrary, to make his language clearer,
would but detract from the strength which it derives
Irom its simplicity, plainness, and directness. —We
have not conversed with either Mr. Ingham or Mr.
Branch, since their dismission from office ; but wo
know, if they jiave a spark of human pride or feeling
about them, that they must feci indignant at the treat
ment they have received.”—( Of course, the more mis
cliie' tho Intelligencer can make, tho ho ter for its
cause !)—“ Our conjecture is confirmed, beyond doubt,
as to one of them, by the above interesting exposition ;
and it can hardly be doubted, that a kindred !! feeling
perervadts the bosdm of Mr. Ingham .It is ssid that he,
too, like his lato colleague in office, is about to return
homo without waiting, as he had been desired to do for
his successor.” ^
Tho Baltimore Chronicle Intimates, that Mr Ingham
is about to publish an Fxpositi n, in the shape of a pam
phlet, in iho course of tho w eek.—We nnticipae tho
pamphlet w til some interest. Its statements and proofs
shall ho impat daily weighed. Wo shall hasten to
lay it before our readers.—We presume, from the anti
cipated character of its contents, that it is likely to pro
duce a statement from the other iule of the question.

yet he arraigns the President for injustice, want of
wisdom and firmness, and denounces him tor having

supporters"! Here we are given to understand where

idea that he ought to have been retained to form tho

to base Ins complaints and accusations against the Presi

It is said, that the !• rench Commissioners assert Ih
ennformity of the Beilin ami .Milan Deere- s with th
Lawi of j\ntions !—aid report favorably on other c«i»
ses, amounting only to two or three millions.
We should deeply regret such a result on every ac
count. It would he an act of gross injustico to our plun
•Icreil merchants—and from whose hand ilocs the blow
coinc? Not from (he Hutu bons, but from the i cgencrat.-d
(•overniuent of Fr nee—In all their negotiations wi h
Mr. (inllatin in Paris, the Hourlions never denied, that
the Claims were fairly due. They never justified the
Decrees ol Bonaparte. As well as we recolle f, they
never disavowed any responsibility for his acts lint they
principally n lied on their poverty, fee. &c.—And now,
when a more liberal.Government is established among
them ; when it ought to be supported, on the principles
ol justico and good faith, wo are to be put oil'with a
ii 1V0I0U8 pretence, that noun* of lUe grossest outrages
winch were ever perpetrated against a neutral Nation
are consistent with thu Laws of Nations.-The dia
rac|er ot France—(he free and just principles on
which alone her Government can he supported—the
cloep sympathy which we have felt in her recent strug
gles—-the attachment of our Countrymen, and the jus
tice of their Claims, should have inspired her Commis
sioners with a jusler spirit —We hopo it is rot yet too
hue to repair their errors—and that her Government
will lose no time in reviewing their decision, and in do
mp justice to our Citizens.
