IAterpool, March 2.—On Sunday night week, Feb. 22,
a violent storm l'rom the N. N. W. swept over ibis town. !
Up to midnight, the gale was not remarkably violent;
as tho morning advanced, however, the wind blew with
all the force of a hurricane; scattering, in the lower
parts ot the town, slates and chimney-pots in every di
rection, and in the higher parts, unroofing houses, up
rooting and dismembering trees, and levelling walls.—
The ravages of the storm have, we regret to slate, been
awful and melancholy on the adjacent coast. The loss
ol lives, and the destruction of property at sea. have
consequently, been lamentably great. The ship Norali!
iiom Detnerara, went ashore on West Hoyle, and of 13
persons on board, including the Captain, all were lust ex
cept one seaman. 'I he other vessel wrecked on Mon
day morning was the bark Itobeit Peel, of Bristol, Mur
phy master, which sailed from Liverpool for South \ me
rioa on the previous Thursday. She was driven on the
'» est Hoyle Bank, and was rapidly going lo pieces. The
captain and crew (sixteen in iiumbci) took to the quar
ter dec.*, which held together until morning; hot the
onptnin and three of the crew perished of the cold in the
course ot the night, and their bodies were washed over
botftd. Oil 1 ucsiluy {itlonioou find Wednesday iiiuniinir,
the Cheshire shore and sands, from the mouth of the Dee
to the Rock-point in the Mersey, exhibited sluing marks
ot the fury of the storm.
In the neighborhood of Hoyluke, not less than seven
vessels were on shore, mote or less damaged. Various
articles ol furniture and pieces of wreck were floating in
the channel, nnd the shore was stiewed with fragments
of the Norali, from Oetncrara, and of the Robt Pet-1, for
Brazil. The wreck of the Superb, steamer, lay on the
Braz.l Bank, opposite New Brighton, ubout a mile from
the shore, whilst the Rescue, a Torquay schooner, flour
laden, from Ireland, was standing n short distance from
the Red Noses. She struck on the North Bank on Mon
duy evening, but rising again to the tremendous sea
which was then raging, she was swept on the main about
eight o clock at night, where she now lies discharging her
cargo, which was considerably damaged by sea water.
We regret to add, that the conduct of “the wreckers”
along tlie coast ofWirral from Hoy-lake to the Red No
ses, was most disgraceful to any civilized country, in
the course of Monday, groups of men, women, and chil
dren, from many miles up the country, equipped in I
wrecking costume, came down in countless numbers I
pounced upon every thing that the surges might have I
thrown in their way, and then dragging it among the I
sand heaps, as a temporary depot, started forward, and i
again fixed their rupacious talons on the next prize
London, March 10.—Our fleet lias suddenly been re
called from Malta to resume its station off the mouth of
the Dardanelles, in consequence of fresh disturbances at
Constantinople, fomented by Russia. A Russian fleet is
reported to have sailed through, that is, to have forced j
Uie ISosphoruH.
London, March 5.—The following intelligence from ;
Levant lias been brought by a vessel which left Alexan- 1
Urn on the 23d ol January, uud has just arrived in France '
after touching at Malta: ‘-As soon as the departure ot
the English squadron was known at Constantinople,
three Russiani ships of wnr passed the Dardsnelles.aml
ha ve it is said, cast anchor at Mytih-ne. A fourth ship,
which loft the straits at the same time, is gone to takeuin
her station at Tenedoa. The Admiral at Malta lias ««,ut
notice ot these movements to London. On the 2^th of
January, the squadron of Josiae Rowley had been se
veral days ut Malta. The retreat of the English squad
ron is attributed to a promise made by Russia to the Kng
hsh—a promise, the fulfilment of which, is due to the
good will ol the Wellington Ministry.”
London, February 23.—The disorganization in the
r icneh ( ahinet is such, that a change of a most cuiitsidc
rahle extent is expected as soon ns the Chambers have
decided on the American Indemnity. The names men
tioned as the probable Presidents ofthc Council are M.
Iluinann, M. Dup'm, nr Count Mnlo, but dillinultiX* at
tach to (lie choice of any of the three.
The French*Chainber of Deputies, Feb. 25th, passed
the Bankruptcy Law, and adjourned its sittings, M. llu
mann having previously presented the accounts for the
year 1833, which are given at length in the Moniteur.—
I he suspension of the sittings, was because no one ofthc
committi-cs was ready to report.
Letters from Paris to March 9th, bid us rely on the
accounts given in the Courier Francois, of Ministerial ar
rangements, or rather disarrangements. This amounts
to the fact, that Messrs. Soultand Mole could not agree
amongst each other, and still less with M. Persil. Both
the former demanded liberty to grant an amnesty, the
one by Ordomiauec, tiic other by a vote of the Chambers.
The embryo Ministry went asunder on this rock on the
night oi Sunday, and on Monday morning, Marshal Soult
rc-conmienceol the task of putting together an Adminis
tration not too disagreeable to the Court, by joinim' cer
tain courtiers with such of the Tiers-Tarti as will lend
themselves to the alliance. Liter accounts, however,
state that he had again abandoned this task, and that it
had been intrusted to Marshal Gerard.
London, Feb. 18.—The Paris papers received this
morning inform us, that the French Ministers, venturing
to divide on the question of the tobacco monopoly, were de ■
featod by a majority of 101. It is said that this division
will not have any effect on the stat-.lity of the adminis
tration; it is difhcult to see how Mr.lllumann proposes to
do without the two millions sterling, which the monopo
ly brought into the Treasury, du Paris it is supposed
that this defeat of the administration will, in all pruhnhi
lity, lead to the rejection of the vote in favor of the Ame
lican claim, which the government expected.
Paris, Feb. fit j.—A number of documents, in addition
to those previously distributed to all the deputies, have
been demanded by the members of the committee on Die 1
Bill relative to the \niericnn treaty, and have been a«- '
cording.'y laid before them. There paper* have keen j
separately and scrupulously examined, and are said to
have thrown considerable light on Die question, a* /liras
regards the importance of the debt due by France. It '
appears, however, that they have not modified the opi- !
nions of the majority of the committee, which are still i
In favor ofthc grunt ofthc twenty-five millions demand- !
ed by the United States; hut it must also he recollected
that eight of the nine Commissioners appointed to ex

pure and simple adoption.
The most important among the documents which have
been communicated to the committee, will be printed and 1
annexed to the report, and the remainder will bo depo- |
sited at the office of the qncstors, where they inuy be t I
a mined by aU tire deputii * till after the vole on the Bill.
It is stated that a n umber of the deputies, and particular
ly the Duke of Filzjunes and M. Berrycr, are in posses- j
sion of some remarkable documents riot known to the
committee, hut which will bo brought forward in the
course of the discussion on the Bill. The report is ex

IIOUSK OF COMMONS—Lon don, March 3.
W ITH AML till A.
Mr. G Robin*.hi (■* we wore told) availed himself of
l ie presence ot the Right lion. Baronet (Mr II. Peel) on
tlio beiu-Iks opposite, to ask him whether any progress
bad been made in the negotiations w itli the United States,
respecliug tin- North American boundurv?
Sir R. Peel said that it would be a cfitlicult mntb r to
give the honourable member an answer on the boundary
question, in terms as concise us those in which he had
couched Ins query. The boundary question was one of
l be most important and complicated questions with which
the Government had to deal, as it related to the settlimr
ot the hunts ot the State of Maine on the part of the if.
States, and ol the limits ol the province ot New Bruns
wick on tlie part of his Britannic Majesty. The dispute
arose out of a treaty made between the two countries so
long ago as the year 1763. By that treaty a line was t.. he
drawn, determining the boundaries of Maine and New
Brunswick. < 'crtuiii high lands were to he discovered be
tween the waters ol the St. Lawrence and the Atlan
ta-, and those high lands were to form the boundaries of
th. two provinces. Bui those hi eh hinds have never
b.;-“ discovered; indeed, it was physically impossible
to find them. In consequence of this, a convention was
subsequently made between this country and the United
States, by w liieh the sc It le il u nt ot these boundaries was
loll to the arbitration of the King of the Netherlands —
1 liree points were submitted to his arbitration. On two
ot them the Kingofthe Netherlands had given a decided
opinion; but on the third, he said that it was impossible
tor him to give any opinion at all, as the highlands
did not exist m the position in which they were suppos
ed to exist in 1763. (A laugh.) Under these circum
stances the King of the Netherlands suggested that
an amicable compromise should take place between
our Government and that of the United States. The
British Government was desirous to stand by the ar
bitration <d the King ot tin- Netherlands with respect
to the terms ol that compromise; hut tlie United States
ret used to do so. The United Slates then suggested
that there should be a new survey. The British Go
veriiiivent consented to make that new survey, and
abide by it, provided certain preliminary articles were
agreed to. One of them was, whether the Bay of Fuji
dy should be considered as a part of the Atlantic Ocean.
-\ despatch had been sent out upon this point in the
course of last autumn, hut no answer had vet been re
ceded to it, the President of the United States having
(let-lined to produce any papers oil the point, from fear,
lie supposed, of coiupromiting himself on the subject._
I Ik- negotiation, however, was still pending. This was
the only point now in controversy between the two pow
ers, ami he wan certain that the announcement of lh.it
tact won hi give delight to all the lovers of peace, who
wished well to the commercial interests of both coun
tru*s. A paper, he repeated, had been transmitted to
the American Government, in October last, and it was
impossible to ascertain yet whether the terms of that pa
per had been accepted.
1 liis 1 otentute, ivlio had been for some lime sufferin';
under a dangerous illness, died at Vienna on the 2d <>f
Alarch, in the (Wth year of his age. The immediate
eause of his death, was pleurisy, although for two years
he hud been suffering from a general derangement of
health. I lie heir to the throne is Ferdinand Charles
| Leopold V rancis Marcelliu, aged 42 years—married to a
daughter ot the late King of Sardinia. The London
Morning News of March li)ih, says_
i lie dentil of !• rancis at this moment is an event of
great importance in apolitical point of view, and cannot
tail to produce an effect on the movements of the differ
ent European Slates. It is well known that Hie present
Emperor has for some time been hostile to tho policy
pursued by Prince Metternich; and indeed so strong
h is been the personal feeling of enmity existing between
them,' that any reconciliation is deemed, by those best
acquainted with the Cabinet intrigues of the Court
of V ienna, to tie quite impossible; the policy which
governed the Councils! of the late Sovereign, will in
"/I probabi/Ky, tie c/lnngeU w/t/i i/d- change of eoiiu
cillors; unless, indeed, as we have seen to he the
case in this country, the sentiments of the Sovereign in
possession shall differ from those of the Sovereign i”i ex
pectancy , and that although there may lie a partial change
of men, the measures of policy pursued by the present
Emperor will resemble in character those which so suc
cessfully carried his predecessor through the difficulties
and dangers with which for a quarter of a century he
was surrounded, and by which his throne and enipirc
were repeatedly shaken to the centre.
That the illness and anticipated demise of the late
Emperor produced a lively sensation on the Continent,
is proved beyond a doubt, by the effects which they pro
duced upon the Public Securities. At the commence
ment of his illnes.i, the lands at Vienna were at 101;
since that period, they have declined to 02. At Paris,
however, the account of his demise, when received on
the Rourse, did not cause a depression of more than J-4
percent. '1 he news from Germany is now looked for
with extreme interest."
The accounts from Paris are to the Oth, at which time
nothing definite had been arranged as to tbe formation of
a new Ministry, the old one having been broken up by
I m,i£,,atior,i on the 27th of February, of the Duke of
1 revino. VV hen lie handed in his resignation, the King,
uRer consulting with the council, sent fur Marshal SouR,
who w as at his country seal at St. Armnnd. Every thing
was in the utmost confusion, and nothing hud yet been
, dune. In announcing the receipt of Paris papers, the
Loudon Morning Herald of the 11 Hi says:
“ No progress had thou been made in the Ministerial
| arrangements, .lust as the public and the press were
beginning to assume that llie Cabinet would be furnished
Y 1 *'? jo|nt ingenuity of Marshal SouR. Count Mole,
and AI. Rara nle, Hie w ork appears to ha ve been suddenly
spoiled by the outbreak of an intestine dissension,and it
is now as much out of joint as ever. The rock upon
which tlu’ue upUt, it* thought to be the aiiilictty—
a measure, which, however, notwithstanding the Kino's
personal dislike to it, and tho continuance Of Al. Persil ni
office, is likely to be, and it is said must be, conceded.—
Opinions still differ as to the final result. The Courrier
Frnncais persists that the Marshal holds the commission
ol lorming the Ministry; another, Marshal Gerard; the
Eonstiliitionnel, that it lias been intrusted to M. Mole;
our own correspondent, to M. Thiers; the Moniteur
m tiiilains a prudent silence upon the siiliject. In other
respects, there is no news from France."
The Indemnity question was still unsettled. The
Committee charged with the examination of the subject,
on the 2y!h February chose .VI Duriion as reporter. This
had excited some surprise in the Chamber, as heretofore
it has been usual for the committee not to choose it re
porh r, until they have agreed upon the question upon I
winch they have to decide, and arranged the basis of the 1
project which they may have to submit. It appears that I
in the present < ii*e, the committee have divided the la
uor among all the members, each one having n special
question given to him lo examine, and after they have nil '
got through, their labors are to lie submitted to M. Da
mon, to be collected and presented to the Chambers. It
was supposed that the Committee would not get through
before the middle or latter part of March.
1 he Paris Moniteur, the official pa|»cr, of the ]2th Feb. i
expresses a doubt w hether the Chambers will allow the 1
Americans the three millions ol interest as well as the j
principal, and is uncertain whether the Government will
recommend it, in addition to the 25 millions, agreeably to
Hie treaty. The same paper adds, "The hesitation on j
the pari ol the Ministry, is represented ns mixing from
their anxiety to steer such a middle course as ut once to
avoid nil cause of quarrel with the V. Btales, ami at the j
rame tunc secure the adoption of the bill by the Chain
bers Hut, tho I'realy of 1B31 recognizes the interest
equally With tile principal."

London, March IT—Wo have received, by express,
the 1 arts papers of Wednesday. No progress appear*
. yet to fie made in the Ministerial arrangements, and
e ven speculation had begun to flag upon the subject. Of
rumors, the latest in circulation was that the Duke de
Broghe was to be the Chief of the Cabinet, and that the
.Ministry would be purely Doctrinaire. The Kin.r, it j8
supposed, obstinately refuses any compromise upon the
subject of the amnesty. 1
rroni ^Switzerland the Lint accounts arc still of a lios- i
*'!/' ennracier. In addition to the troops of Baden and
V urt*-*>nburg, which threatened the frontier, it would seem
that Austria is adding ii8 contingent to coerce the Can
tons. A letter front Munich, in one of the German pa
pers, states that it is intended to form a cordon of Aus
i triau, Bavarian and \\ urtemburg troops in front of ihose
| parts which abut upon Germany. In Baden they alfect
to dread an invasion from Switzerland. Differences ex
ist between the Cantons as to the course to be pursued
under suchi threatening circumstances; but in gciicraHhc
ancient military spirit of the people is boiling over with
indignation at this aggression upon their national rights.
Jt is stated in the Augsburgh Gazette, under the Tiead
0 . Constantinople, Fel.. l'A, that Mehemet Ali had been
seized with a nervous complaint that endangers his life.
It is said he expressed regret he did not dethrone the Sul

1 hat the Sultan, on receiving the intelligence, summoned

DEMOCRATIC TRIUMPH IJY < u.y.vei //- f /
The Democratic Ticket has prevailed in the Land of
Steady Habits, by more than 2000 majority. As Jelfer
son once carried the State, so Jackson has done likewise.
The noble stand taken by the President to put down the
r. Utates Hunk, the /mimic which that monstrous Insti
tution and its Senatorial orators so unnecessarily con
tributed to raise, and the abuses of the Senate, whose
majority was only carried by a gross contempt of the In
structions ot the States—these, arc the piincipul reasons
u liich have turned the tide in Connecticut, on the side
of the Democracy of the South. We hail the result, us
a glorious triumph. We have carried the Governor,
all the sit firm menhirs of Congress, and tiie Legisla
ture ol the Stute. Ihis change ,n the Coiigicssional
Fleet ion amounting to uncllguin of 12 votes,"will ena
ble the Republican party to stand with the greaU r t-fleel
by the old President's side against the Bank, and to se
cure the election of firm and efficient officers in the
House of Representatives. Virginia, loo, we have eve
ry reason to hope, will do her duty—-and make us gn at a
numerical change in her representation.
We lay the following Letter, from a prominent citizen
of Connecticut, before our renders:
“Midmi.ktowx, (Conn.) AprilS, lKLr>.
“ Knowing the interest you take in the success of the
Democratic cause, 1 take the curliest opportunity to gi ve
you the result of the election held in this State on the
(ithinst., from which you will see that Dciuocrucv is
completely triumphant.
“ At tins election were chosen members of both branch
es of tho legislature—the Governor, Lt. Governor
Treasurer and Secretary—and six members of Congress
—th«- last, as well ns the Governor, Ac., by geneml
ticket. b
“Out of 132 towns, (the whole number,) we hare re
turns from Ho, which give to the Dcmoeralic candidates
tor State officers and members of l .ingress, a majority
of 1770—and the remaining towns will unquestionably
increase this majority to over 2,000. A majority of the
members elected to each House of the Lecrislaluro are
also Democrats. Thus the State is thoroughly, and. as
we trust.permanently regenerated. Our victory is com
plete. May \ irginiu.at the piesent election,do as well.
“Our newly elected members of Congress, Messrs.
1 oucey, Ingham, llalcy, Wildinan, Phelps and Judson
are idemocrats of the Old School, the curly friends of
the President, and warm supporters of the leading mea
sures of his administration.
*' For many years past, this State has been under the
control ot tho Opposition, consisting of the entire Fede
ral party, and a class of voters who were once Dcino
crats, but who, influenced by such men, as Tomlinson
ami l oot, left the ranks of their former friends to battle
I the Administration. Tile conduct of the Bank of the
L. States—the panic of last year, and the rash and un
constitutional acts of the U. States Senate, have opened
their ryes, and most all of this class supported the Juck
8on Democratic ticket at this election.
“1 lie number ol votes polled was unprecedentedly
large. The Opposition did all that money and unwearied
exertions cou,d do, and after all, have been shnially de
feated. 1 consider the vote of this Stale os sure f..r the
l residential candidate who may be nominated at the
Baltimore Convention as that of almost any State in the
i lie ixew * ork Evening Host gives tho returns of 112
towns—20 more only to lx- heard from—and our ascer
tained majority already exceeds 2000: The vote for Ed
wards being 19,020, and for Foot 17,531. Of the 21 Se
nulors elected, lti are Jackson men: and lithc rest are
— If /tigs.
I be KveningPost, too, announces the Rhode Island
election us commencing “next Wednesday" (to-morrow.)
• It will be contested with great animation; but we have
the strongest ground of hope, that the result will be of the
same gratifying character with that which has crowned
tne efforts of our democratic friends of Connecticut.”—
II so, we shall obtain the Senator of the United States.
So mote it be.'
Even the Appeal (the White paper) hails the triumph:
• I he republican party in old Connecticut, lias at last
triumphed over the coalition of Hank-men, federalists,
ami anti-tolerationisU, which for some years have con
trived to maintain their ascendancy in that intelligent
t>tate. We hail this victory with the greatest satisfac
tion, as it sliews that the free oilmens of this republic,
though they may for a while be cajoled and misled by
designing politicians, will ultimately see their error und
redress their wrongs."—It trusts that Connecticut will
I go against the Hallynore Convention, and for J Judge
While.—It he be the candidate of the great Republican
I arty, she will aw^urcdly do bo.
J lie last arrivals place the success of the Indemnity Hill
almost beyond the shadow of a doubt.—'The followin'?
articles reached us on Saturday last:
“ We understand that Mr. Livingston does not appro
bend that the late change of Ministry will produce any
c.haiqre m the Chamber of Deputies on the question of
he Hill of Indemnity, it is supposed that it will pass
by a large majority.’ —Globe of Friday lost.
“ I' now I UANCR.—We have seen a number of letters
from 1 arts, some of them from the highest sources, all of
which speak with the strongest belief, that the Ameri
can Indemnity Hill will pass: one of the letters, which
is from a Deputy, says, the moie the claim is investigated
the more convinced members are that it is a justcluim and
ought to be paid."-The New York Daily Adicrtiser,
( II lug paper,) of Wednesday last.

Franklin was one of those few counties, which wo

can, John M Holland, whom the Whigs had calculated
on heating with the Utmost ease. Hut they are deceived,
upd we hear no exulting shouts raised tor their success.
She is, as she was, divided in the Legislature—one Whig
and one Republican. The result of the Election is as

franklin is Claiborne s oten county; und lie lias beut
Stuart but III voles in it. Bedford, 1'atrick, and Henry
vet to vote.—The former will give Claiborne a majority.
1'atrick, Stuart's own county, will give him (Stuart) a
strong majority, and Henry will also give him one, in
all probability. The contest is doubtful.
Craig lias beaten Moore for Congress more than 500.
He is more than 200 ahead.—Hotctourt, Floyd, Allcglm
ny. ami Augnstayct to vole. The three former willgive
Craig heavy majorities—-and Augusta, though a strong
r edcral county, is dissiitishcd witn Moure's course*—- mid
will not turn out all her force. Resides, the Republicans
have a force there which will tell on the day of the Elec
tion. We consider Craig's success as certain.
John McCauley, the lnte Jackson Delegate, lias been
beaten 107 votes by Dr. Ingles, another Jackson limn,
and a very popular one in the county. Even the “Whig”
of yesterday, which had hitherto cried up In-des only
ns a Whiteman, is compelled to confess that “fir. Ingles
is Anti-\ an liuren, hut .A/chson. The Correspondent
of the Whig writes from Christiansbiirg. Montgomery,
April 8, that “Dr. Ingles avowed, at the polls, a decided
preference forjudge White for the next Presidency.—
To use his own language, he said, that he would sup
port Judge White against \ an Huron, or any other man,
unless he was convinced that he could not he elected;
and that lie would not support the nominee of the Hah
timore Convention, unless he was his choice, and Judge
hite was withdrawn, or stood no chance of election?”
\\ e take all this with many grains of allowance. Hut
we have written for information, and will give it as soon
as received. We iiave no doubt that Dr. Ingles will
turn out to be like Craig himself, or Fitzgerald of Nolto
wny—preferring White, but going with the great body of
the Republican party for a Jacksoh man.—Old MohIto
mery, which has just given Craig more th in 500 majo
rity, will never have a Delegate, who will throw himself
into the arms of the Whigs.

Ashby's Precinct had not then been heard from. But
the last "Virginian" endorses on its margin—"Smith

Mr. Lucas lias not beaten Mr. Cooke in Frederick, (Mr.

nty two years ago over A. Smith,) Berkeley against Lu

Republican,) are yet to vote.
Old Frederick bus not done as well as was expected
by friends, and dreaded by foes. The "Virginian" la
ments the result in the following strains;
"Tin; Ei.r.crio.v.—The result ofthe election in this
county will, no doubt, astonish ninny of our readers_
When it is remembered, that there is an Administration
majority of ,><)0 voters, it cannot hut be matter of surprise
that a decided opponent of the Administration will, in
nil probability, be returned to the Legislature of Virginia
and t hat there should be a bare majority of not more than
one hundred votes in favor ofthe Democratic Candidate
lor Congress. Toour minds the causes which produced
this state ot things developed themselves some weeks

which is now before us. We have no lamentation* to
make on the occasion; the people have willed it, and to us
th( ir voice IS law. With all these facts before us we be
teve the county o Frederick is firm in her attachment
to the principles ofthe present Administration, and that
“he will yet show herself in her true colors.”

Extract of a IrUrr, dated .Jpril 10.
I am Tory much gratitled to hoc such strung rc&soii to
believe, that my dear nutite Stale is about to re assert and
re-establish hrr aid Dnnotratu Principles.''
I In* last Petersburg Constellation breathes ctrains full
of confidence and hope:—“Thus far we have gone on
well—in some instances our victories have been gloritms
beyond the most sanguine expectations; and where the
Republicans have sustained defeat, it has been under
such circumstances and by such meagre majorities on the
part of the Whigs, as to give no just cause for exultation
on their part, and hut little reason for regret on ours.—
1 o the poll, then ! to the polls ! Tho day must be ours—
the CktsUrficld Congressional District in already so, Mr.
Archer having relinquished the contest, as will be seen
by the following letter addressed to the Electors:
Jo the Electors of the Congressional District composed
oj the counties of Ptnchutun, A'ottoiraij, ( hestn field
houc/iltind and Amelia. *
C< ntlcmcn : The result of the two elections which
have taken place in the District, confirming other indi
cations, leaves me no doubt that a majority of you con
demn the course 1 have pursued as your Representative
on the important questions which are at present agitating
the public mind—I could not expect in these circum
stances, to obtain the suffrages of ibis portion of yon fur
re-election, and ought not to desire it if I could, as no
thing could induce me to renounce, or qualify in any
manner, the opinions that divide us. It only remains
for mo, therefore, to announce to you my withdrawal
from n further prosecution of the canvass, which it is
the purpose of this brief address to do.
Having held, for so long. <viod the place of your Re
presentative, it has been my , .nest wish, to be enabled
before my separation from it, to give some decisive evi
dence that I have not been wholly undeserving of the
trust. Ibis wish I must use the frankness to tell you,
that 1 think 1 have accomplished, in the conduct which
has incurred the disapproval of so many of you; the ma
nifestation that 1 would abide inflexibly by my sense
(however it might be mistaken) of what I owed to the
t onstitution of iny country, even at the expense of vour
favor. J
1 tender you gentleman, in taking this final lenve, the
proper acknowledgment. f„r >/)Ur ,)U!>t confidence

THE Tonsil PLOT.
Tlu- reader will scarcely believe it possible', that the
Wings could have been guilty of the trick of putting
this/opish plot into circulation. Ilut "The Whig" ha*
actually thrown out the suggestion for effect—some of
the Whigs in Albemarle propagated it unblushingly in
one quarter—where it slightly took effect. They are
now trying to get it up in Goochland. To what ma
il a: uv re are they next descending ? They talk of New
* °, tr'cks, and Van lluren tactics! The Constellation
truly says: " 1 he great Magician will have to .rive us i.
lew more touches ol his mysterious wand, before the
Republicans will Ire qualified even to hold u candle for
the Whigs lodolAe<> tricks by." These Whigs do not
blush to take up tlm cast-off tricks of M. \I. >?,a|,. Mo
has tried it twice iu N. York—and thence, idler it was
scouted and hissed oiVlhc stage,our Whig managers do
not hesitate to bring the Story newly vamped up, to
gull the intelligent People of the Old Dominion.
1 bis report was first levived, as far as we cun learn in
the county ol Essex. One of her citizens, passing soon
after through Wash ngton, wrote Mr. V. lluren a note
stating the rumor, and requesting an explanation —Mr.
v. it. addressed him a short letter in reply, which the C'iti
zen ol Essex sent to us, and requested us to send it then
to Essex. We retained no copy of it; but with that let
ter before us we penned the article which appeared in
our paper of the 31st ult. Mr. Van Buren most positive
ly declares, tint “ he is not now, anil nr.crr has Lem, a Ho
"tflo,,c-” 1,0 explains the origin of the story —
Whilst Secretary ofSlale, he received, through our Con
sul nt Rome, a communication from the Papal Govern
ment, relating to the election of tin- present Pope, and
express,vO ol his (the Pope’s) thank, for the regions
toleration winch the Catholics enjoy i„ this country
and also of tin- desire of that Government to cultivate’
triciuily relations with our own Government. Mr. V. It.
replied, by direction of the President, stating that
all religious sects enjoyed the Rights of Toleration
in the U. Butea, and reciprocating the wish for friendly
relations. 11 is out of this letter, tint this miserable plot
has been got up against Mr. Van Huron. The original cor
respondence was published in the Globe. It was ropub
li.hed in this paper. No man of sense nnd impartiality
suwnny thing in it, hut what was highly creditable to
be . ec rotary of Slate. Yet the slander is now swept un
trorn the kennels ofthe New York Press to gull the good
people of Virginia! h
As well might the illustrious Jefferson he held uu ns
a Mohammedan, for having addressed the following civil
ietter to the Emperor of Morocco, while lie was Secretary
of Mate under Gen. Washington, as Martin Van Buren
to be held up as a Homan Catholic, fur writing the letter
to Rome: n
[Letter from the President to the Fmju ror of Morocco,
reject ed to in the letter of Mr llurchiij.)

wiii.AT a n n m Aon a n i MOL's Friend:—Separated by

of our infant nation, manifested his royal rcgnrd and ami

iKMiiftrljr by th© protection of our nfizrns in theiv com

your Royal patronage also;amt will give me great satis*

the I rcaty, which cements the two nations in friendship.
"1 his will be delivered to your Majesty by our faith
fol citizen, Thomas Barclay, w'lmm I name Consul for
these United States in the dominions of your Majesty,

Emperor wag received. ! pray your Majesty to protect
him in the exercise of his functions, for the patronage of
the commerce between our two countries, and oftnneo
who carry-it on.
