JPhiladelphia, September 11, 1800. '
| TO THOMAS JJJFFERSON, J
Vice President of the United Ststes. j
Sir, ,
EXPERIENCE, even in the domedic
ranfaitions of life, is of fucli great Talue,
hat we prize it with a miserly palllon ; but
vhen in the public concerns of a nation, it
s obtained by wading through difficulties,
nd hazarding many important rifles, grati
ude will ereel a temple, consecrated to its
vorth, and the nation will bow in reve
ence to it, as the Genius, which fhallguide
ts political career.
America h<is cause to build this Temple,
ucceeded the declaration of Peace, our
■ountry, by the wife and virtuous admini-
Iration < f General Walhington, fail rose
nto consequence, and flourilhed in wealth
nd power—her commerce became extensive,
nd lucrative ; a system of finance was edab
ilhed, which yielded a permanent and rich
evenne, and the daring -head of Faftion,
vas prostrated hy the drong arm of govern
nent. Happy and contented at home, Eu
ope contemplated us, as a nation enjoying
inrivalled, all the numerous bleflings of the
>ured liberty tinalloyed by the evils of licen
ioufnefs. When that convullion commen
ed, which fliook to its center the old
vorld, and yet threatens to deluge in blood,
he riched plains of Europe, the demon of
inarchy riding' triumphant it. the florm
limed an arrtw at our repose, and happiness
—but the arm of Walhington, ever drong
n his country's defence urged from its
ourfethe fatal weapon, and layed it harm
less at his fret.
Too soon for us has Death snatched away
ii . i." but he bequeathed to liis successor,
: : fame Ihield with which !.e had defended
11.- c mi try. On the broad balls of his bono
jlaced, guarded on #l.l fides, by the unbound
ed aflfeft ons of a grateful people ; no florm
:ou!d efll-clually a (Tail this high and l'ecure
bition, ior it was built on a rock immuta
ble and fixed j the hearts of his countrymen.
Mr. Adams, with manly firnmefs purl'ued
:lie fame wife policy. Power, wealth and
, r lory accumulated in rich profufion aiound
lis happy country ; in a moment, and the
■ones us In-, enemies would have been crufh
d. But an unlucky "moment checked the
:uriei t of national joy, and threw a tempo
rary gloom over the face of affairs, the
lluper of death fuccerded the animated ex
erti<-tis of youthful vigour. I need not Sir
recite to you those nu-blurts of the President,
which bear droiiß marks ®f a change in his
political sentiments, aud to which 1 allude.
me to charge the President with intentional
the confidence I repose in his integrity, but
Sir, to the majority of tlu'fe who railed
him to the chair of State, he certainly ap
pears to have changed his political opinions,
implied obligation seems not to have beet;
full filed-, lie re is caule enough In the mind;
ni lome p-ople, to entertain fui'picions, ant
iiy this example before your eyes, you ought
to be governed. You have here a man,
beloved, and revered through a long life,
aild of whole fidelity malice itfrlf had nevei
dared to doubt ; in an inllant bereft ofs
considerable portion of th* confidence of hii
friends, for embracing some measures which
at moll are but doubtlul. Whether this
fliare of the public elleem is julllv or unjud
ly withdrawn, I will not pretend to juJge.
for I am ignorant of the reasons, which in
fluenced the Prelidrnts mind But that a
diminution of confidt nee has taken place,
is the taft, and this fliould serve as a way
mark to you. If unfortunately it Ihould
States ; for your eivn sake, I advise you to
fullnl everv d ;ty of Jacobinism, ai d fuffei
not the energy of its spirit, to die whib in
your keepin, ; plunder and the guillotine,
..re its worthy inflruments, and you flioulc
not sparingly life them, nccudom yourfelf tc
walk .undismayed amid the tombs of mur
dered thousands, and the groans of dying
Patriots ; expell from polls of profit *ever)
worthy and honed man, and (111 them witl
traitors,and rogues, you will then pleale yom
party, and preserve yourfelf. . But repose no'
Sir, too much on your ivell established fame
think not that you may deviate one lief
from the path marked out by your party
In the fate of Mr. Adams you may reat
your own ; he was sincerely beloved by hi
ened that afl'e£tion. Mr. Adams was mi
verfally elleemed a worthy successor to tin
mod illuilrious of men a ri h afiemblagi
of public honours decorated his character
and he would have lived in the annals o
history an illultious monument of a grate
ful couir.ry. But those recent afts whicl
appear tinftured with the spirit of demo
cracy, will tear from hie brow the encirclinj
wreath and fully a name which might havi
dazzled a world.
Having examined into the principles anc
views of your party, my fellow-citizem
know what they have to exptft from th<
administration of President Jefferfou.
have done my duty in endeavouring to ex
pole it naked to their eyes ; they will at
lead fee enough 10 enable them to form <
judgment ; and if, in spite of occular evi
dence, in spite of the tragic scenes whicl
have been acted in France, in spite of th<
frequent attempts made to introduce iti
blsody reign into this country, my fellow
citixens Ihould obstinately and wickedly pre
ftr you for their ruler, I fiiall only h.,ve t(
lament that their wiekednefs will be so fe
verely punilhed and their experimenta
knowledge so dearly bought. But, Sir
* I cannot fay and " polls of honor" for then
the private station will be the post of houor.
J-your countrymen are too good,
Ttooreligious (despise this a? you please, i
ttfll belong? to them) to ele& Thomas Jest
ferfgn for their President. They have all
felt the poisonous effects of fuffering, but
for a pioment the introdu&ion of Jar.obinifm
into the Federal Government: they will
.vigilantly guard the executive door, and
royghly expel from its thiefhold every pre
fumptupus intruder the lead tinftured with
its spirit. fexperieoce has taught them a
le'ffon, which is engraven on their hearts
and never can be erased ; for even fuppoiing
that you are not quite callous to ev.ry pa
triotic imprefli n, in, a moment of re
flection you might wifli to spare the total
ruin of your country—pjeafe not yourfelf,
Sir, with the consoling hope that you dare
to execute one honourable wifli, for you
dare not. The Prsetonan band of Jacobins
have the poignard of death ever ready for
the deserter ; their all is depending on
the progrcfo of Jacobinism, and their all
will not be easily surrendered.
Deceive yourfelf no longer, Sir ; throw
off your miferabie pretentions to the Pre
fidrticy, founded on no virtue but your
power ta do harm ; but which to Jacobins
is a strong recommendation. Ask pardon
of your offended country forhaving appear
ed inpublicjfo meanly attiied, and I do not
doubt.but that to get rid of you they will
forgive you. But take Sir, along with yon
in your retreat this lesson, they are perhaps
my parting words—that the People of A
merica will not raise to the Presidency the
Chieftain of a Party which delights in hu
man gore and lives but in the tempestuous
sea of anarchy ; they will not eleft that
man to rule over them who has sworn def
tru&ion to their form of government, and
avowed his difbelief of the ( hriftiar. Reli
gion. No Sir, if your friends have told
this, they have mistaken the chara&er of
your countrymen—for they love their con
llitution and reverence ifaeir religion. Keep
Hill then, I conjure you in your retirement
at Monticello—purfue your favo-rite study
of natural history—dissect every fly that
may buz about your eyes ; but spare the
philosophic difmetnbrrmeut of America ; for
if you stray from your element and inttude
on the political stage, goaded to the ex
tremes of indignation and despair, the
people may speak a language too harsh for
the delicacy of your nerves.
COLUMBUS.
BOSTON. Sept. 9,
Br the Brig Aleri,
Which has never arrived without furnifli
ingtreQi intelligence, we have received Lon
don papers to August 4, the latclt by four
teen days. The most recent paper contains
1 a report that a Peace between France and
Austria was agreed to on the 29th of July.
We have certain accounts that an arniiitice
has been concluded between Generals Kray
and Moreau. It is improbable that Buo
naparte would have extended the celfation of
lioftilities if the Emperor had not exhibited
a pacific disposition. The " dogs of war,"
on the continent are kennelled for a time.
The continued adlive preparations for hoftil
iities is ordinary policy, intended to secure
.< good bargain, and to guard agaiuft exi
j gencies.
The various military arrangements, peti
tions, &c. are now objects of fecundary im
portance.
Negociaticns between Russia, Prufih,
Denmark, and Sweden, for supporting a
neutrality by force of arms, is thought to
be in considerable forwardnefs. The affair
of the D.inilh fiigate, however, must lyive
occurred in conference of particular orders
from the court of Copenhagen. Th* British,
a private article fays, have so far resented
this uunfual refiftaßCe as to have authorized
the CAPTUREOF DANISH VESSELS.
We cannot find that the reports current
yeHerday of the departure of our Envoys
from France, are fupparted by either printed
or oral information
