Reininiscenees and Farts connected with
the Life of the late John Randolh.-On a
bright sunny morning, early in Feb. 1796.
might have been seen entering our book
store, in Charleston South Carolina, a fine
looking, florid complexioned old gentleman
with hair us white as snow which contras
ted with his complexion.shewed him to have
been a free liver, or hon airant, of the first
order; along with him was a tall, gatkv
looking. flaxened haired stripling, apparent
ly of the age of from sixtecn to eighteen,
with a coipilexitn of a good p archment
color, beardless chin, and as much assumed
self-conseaiuence as any two footed animal
we ever saw ; this was John Raudolih.
We handed him from the shelves volume
after volume, which ihe tumbled carelessly
over and handed back again; at length lie
hit upon something that struck his finiy-.
our eye happened to be fixed upon his face
at the moucnt, and never dlid we witness
so sudden. so perfect a change of human
countenance ; that which before was dull
and heavy in a ntintCnt buennie aninmted,
sud flashed with the brightest beams ofin
telleet, lie ste;ped up to the grey haired old
man and giviig himta thudering slap on the
shoulder, said, "Jack, look at this !" We
were young then, but we never can forget
the thiotughit that rushed upon onr muind at
the moment, whtich was. that lhe was the
tmost inmpudent youth-we ever saw, lie
haol come to Charlestont tontend the races.
T1here was then living in Chiarlestoni, a
Sentehi barottet, by the namo of' Sir John
Nesbit, with his younger brother Alexander
of the ancientt flouse of Nesbits of D~ean
Hall, somie fifteen mtiles froi minturg.
Sir Johtn was a very handsomie man, amtd
as gallant, gay Lothatrio"aus could be found
in the city. lIe and Randolph hecame in
giniate, whtich led to a banter betwveen themn
for a race, in whtichi each was to ride hts
owar horse. The race camue ont dutring the
race week, and Randolph won-somte la
dies exelaiming ait the titme, "'though Mr.
Raitdolph hiadt Won the race, Sir Johntl woin
their htearts." Thtis wats not so) muchel to h~e
wondteredl at, whent they contrasted the ele
gaint formi amd gruacefutl'stylo of riding ofthe
IHarottet, with the untoth and awkwaied
mnnner of his competitor.
Some two or three years after this visit
to Charlestoit. lie was elected a membeltr of
Congress, and such was still his v'outhfutl
appearance, that wvhen lie appmeared at thte
clerk's tuable to qualify, that getlemait could
not refrain fromt asking him his ago ; thte
answer wats prompt if not satisfactory
"ask in constituents, sir," was the re; dy.
JTohn Adrams waa then P'residentt, antd 14r.
lRant~lohph took a decided part against htis
administration. Contgress was then sitting
in Philadel >hiia. and M r. Adams' "hot wa
ter war wit i France," being then on thte
tapis, thte latitude Mr Randolpht'gave htis
tne in debate, occasioned his being as
satttedh in the lobby of the theatre, by an
oflteer of the army or navy, we do0 nor re
colleet which or whio be as. but Mr. hn.
dolph trade a formal complaint, which, to n
the best ofour memory, met with but a cold r
reception. Party runs high enough now,
and much too high for the good of the coun- s
try-but he, who supposed it never rose v
higher; knows nothing of the period to which g
we allude. e
Among the members of Congress, Mr. t
Randolph had but few personal ftiends.but t
those few he "riveted to his soul with hooks
of steel." Among them was the lion. Mr.
Bryan from Georgia; the late Governor a
David R. Williams, of South Carolina, and 7
the venerable Nathaniel Macon, of North k
Carolina. At the close of the session, soon c
after the removal of Congress to Washing
ton, the former of those gentlemen, (Mr. t
Bryan) married a daughter of Gen. i'ore
nan, of Maryland, and with her, and her I
sister, spent some days in Charleston, when f
on their way to his estate in Georgia. On
this occasion, Mr. Bryan sheved us a letter t
which he had just received from Mr. Ran
dolph, congratulating him upnn his mar
riage. A letter of more beautiful simplici
ty and feeling we never read. We recol- M
lect that, while the writer dwelt upon the a
happiness and advantages to he expected I|
from wedded life, he spoke leclingly of never d
expecting to enjoy them himself.
The Yazoo fraud, a greater than which a
ever disgraced the annals of a state or na- i
tion, came hefo-e Congress about this tine. I
We are acquainted with some of the nietari
ous transactions which gave rise to this stu- d
pettious villainy. In 1794, a number of
men in Georgia, joined by some in South s
Carolina, calling themselves the Yzoo
company, applied to the Legislature ofGa.
in 1795, for a grant of an immemi,e tract of
territory, to which site had no right, and t
over which she had no jurisdiction: but the
men who formed this company were not to I
lie easily put ol, and a title from some
Legislature was indispensible to the success t
oftheir scheme. They effected by bribery
the accomplishment of their object ; it be- c
came a matter of notoriety that the whole t
Legislature, were bribed to grant the title
e'" for, but which they had nn right to
Which it had been
puny,"^," who purm
millions of dollars of these lands, knowuin .
them to have been fraudulently obtained. I
We were ins G~eorgia the next year, 1796, 1
when the new Legislature,. who had heen a
elected with a direct view to this subject, t
having assembled at the seat ofgoverntent
and taking the necessary preliminary steps, s
went im grantid procession, with their respec
tive oflicers at their head, and burnt, by the s
hands of the common hang-man, the record c
of the infamous proceedings of their imme- t
diate predecessors ; and with them, the in- :
famous grant itself. The Yazoo claim was s
by the New England Mississippi Land Com
pany, to recover from Congress, the value
the lands so obtained ; and it was in opposi- r
tion to this application, that Mr. Randolph t
iinmtortalized himselfiin speeches that will s
stand "the test of time, of scrutiny. and of a
talent." It was regularly brought forward t
nt every session, and as regularly defeated
by htin. The late Gen. Vade llampton
and O'Brien Smith, were both elected to
Congress, with a sole view of carrying i
through this unrighteous measure; and it 4
was during its discussion one dIv, when n
they were in the house, that Mr. Randolph a
made the withering remark, which rung t
through the Union at the time. Shaking i
his long, lank finger at Mr. Hampton, 'e it
exclaimed at the top of his voice, "Mr. s
Speaker, I hope, sir. to see the day, when a
\azoo claimant and a villain, will be sy- I
nonvmous terms." On the evening follow 1
ing, Mr. Ilamptton hutndled up his papers I
and waited on Mr. Randolph, whose first
salutation on the occasion was, "have you
come for peace or for war.' For peace,
was the reply, or I .houtl nt bring the e
papers. In ant evil htour, Mr. Ran dolphil
was left nut, atnd before his re-electioti, the
hill was past, anad the rohhIery contstmmsa
tedl, to thet amnotitt of$,000l,000. A n event
which conhli not have taken place whilst he
had a seat in that house.
.Mr. It andoAlilt was al ways eceentric, and
mn the latter part of his life at times, insane.
We witnssed an itnstance of it, in IBalti
noure, in the spirinig oif 18~20, when lhe rude
it an open chair, with a doiuble barrel gun
beside him., to make a morlning entl, and
marde hisi fasithftul Jubn~ take th gnun inato ste
hutse after him. A few days afler, he took
passage on a steamt boat, at Baltimtore, fur
Norfolk: here his insanity shtewed itself in
a manner none conl dotubt. There was a
Frenich gentleman, panssenger on~ionrd, to
whlomu ho took a-great dlislike, and callinig
for his gun, he took possession of the caint
dhoor, tand winl not allow the passenger,
who was on deck, to re-enter the cabin.
IHis insatnity att this time. wvas knownt to,
and spoken of bmy tany. No man of a great
and a sane mind, suech as Mr. Ranidolph's
had becen, could. while in a santo state, he
guilty of such conduct, as occasionially
marked his course, dutrinig his short embassy
to Russia.
It was genernily uindersteood, that lhe wsvs
disappointed matty years ago, in not receiv
irng the aippoiunenst of Mitnister to England
anid that from this disappointment, andu the
ehngr in conscquneat upon it, sprunn all those
ecceeettites which marked his erratic
course ini afer life. This wvas his imisfor

wvhole life abundatly prmved, ie possessed

ture. btut tho use bie mbd, of hin ntcie
hents, were rather calculated to make ene
ties than friends; and yet, as he once suid,
no man was ever blessed with such con
tituents." A fact, which of itself, speaks
olumes in his praise. If heorigir ated no
eat national good, he prevented many
vils; and in doing so, became the benefitc
ir of his country, although not to the e
