" Let us •hoofe men, w,ho will honour our choice in the councils of our country ; men, who u nite prudence and a spirit of independence with a&ive ability. Sueh a man is Samuel Hwnt, Esq. To a liberal and excellent education, he adds the signal advantages which result from a residence in foreign countries. His knowledge of the existing relations between our own and other gov ernments, and his acquaintance with the in ternal concerns of his own state, we venture to fay is equal to that of any candidate, who has yet been nominated iu this, or the eaflern part of New-Hampshire. Hisprof pefts to eminence at the bar was fair and unclouded, but I e chose to quit the pursuits of a profeffion, and is now fettled in Ch.irlef town, u'iiverfally beloved and refpe&ed, on his own paternal farm. Perhaps his late re sidence in France may have given rife to the opinion of the anti-federal writer, refpeft ing the complexion of Mr. H's political sentiments.

That piwur, which neither God or nature ever intended to entrust to individuals, for any purpose but the gene ral good, is confided in the hands of men, who must do violence to their own vicious propensities, if they do not employ it to do mifchief. Can we reasonably expeft that the hrutified debauchee will patronile sobriety ; the swindler, honcft industry ; the French philosopher, religion ; or the demagogue and anarehift, law and order.
