TUESDAY MOKNiyQ* MARCH 20, 1827.
The excitement of party feeling*often brings men into notice who would otherwise never be known hut in a limited circle. Such is the case of the redoubtable General Saunders, of North ; Carolina, who has rendered himself conspicu- | uus by volunteering as one of the fighting | ham pious of his party, and immediately shrink ing from the responsibility of bis new offirce. So entirely has he disgusted his political friends, by shunning Messrs. Buckner and Johnston, of Kentucky, and challenging the decripid and purblind Mr. Wright, of Ohio, that he has been driven to decline a poll for re-eleetion. Portraits of prominent men, no matter how the uriginais may have risen in the world, are en titled to public attention. We there tore place before our readers a full length likeness of the North Carolina Hero, painted in fine style and with great accuracy, by his contemporary Mr. Wright. The picture will be found in another colun.n. The Editors or the Albany Daily Advertiser copy Messrs. Gales and Seatons strictures upon the political management of Mr. Van Buren, k acknowledge them to be “a correct portraiture otihe Man, who has ever been more distin guished as * party disciplinarian than as a state man.” The editors condemn their Senators, 'plan for the improuen*ent of the pretty and add chat Mr Van Buren “understands this kind of business welt, much better in our humble opin ion, than he does the proper management of the affairs of the nation. It is here that his forte lies, and he considers the improvement of the press as the very key to party discipline. He has improved 4 press in this city to some pur pose, and made its editor a mere nose of wax, to be shaped in such form as he shall direct.” If the freedom and purity of the Press be worth preserving, the tollowing remarks,by the Editor of the Trenton True American, are en titled to consideration: Wayt and Mems.— U is known to the public that hundreds of dollars raised by private con tribution, besides the 81500 given by Gen Ea ton, were employed by the advocates of General Jackson for the presidency, to aid the editor of the late Columbian Observer, in Philadelphia, in furiously assailing Mr. Adams, Mr. Clay, Mr. Crawford, and their friends, and in vilify ing their characters, because they stood in the way of. or would not fall down and worship the General as their idol. Thirty thousand dollars are also well understood to have been raised, to pay Duff Green, one of the most accomplished blackguards in the nation, for printing and pub fishing the U S. Telegraph, and for circulating thousands of his papers filled with abuse of Mr. Clay, and Mr. Adams and their friends, free of expente, among the people of the different stales. Other presses have sprung up since, that have probably been established and sup ported in the same way; as subsidizing and cor rupting the press, appears to be one principal mebn, used by the leaders of the opposition to effect their purposes. In addition to what has already been disclosed on this subject, we were informed by an opposition gentleman, a short time since, who pretended to know, but who could not, it appears, keep the secrets of his party, that they mutt succeed, as they had a fund of 850,000, which they intended to employ in establishing presses in the several states, which were to be employed in writing down the administration, and argued from this, that Mr. Adams could not be re elected Attempts have been made, we are well assured, to pur chase two other presses, that are now estahlish •d, or to employ their editors in slandering the administration, under the promises of large supplies and liberal support; but happily with out effect; the editors of those papers being too pure, too honest, and too high-minded, to be thus bought up It is thus, that the leaders of the opposition, (not the people,) are determin ed to control public opinion, and corruptly ele vate themselves to office, over the ruins of those, who bow preside over the nation. CIRCULAR TO THE COLLECTORS. Treasuuy Department, March 17 th, 1827. Sir: I send herewith atopy of the President’s Proclamation, dated this day: by the effect of which you will perceive, that the trade be tween the United States and certain colonial ports of Great Britain, as opened by the act of Congress of the 1st of March, 1823, entitled ‘An act to regulate the commeicial intercourse between the United Stales and certain British Colonial ports,’ is closed; and that the provi sions of the act af April the 18th, 1818, entitled ‘An act concerning Navigation,’ and those of the act of May the 15th, 1820, entitled ‘An act iupplementarv to an act, entitled An act con cerning Navigation,’ are in force. These seve ral acts have heretofore been transmitted to rou, at periods when their pttuisions were in operation, but copies of them are again enclo sed for your information and government. As British vessels from some of the colonial ports specified in the first section of the act of the 6rst o! March, 1823, may now be within the United States, and consequently, must have arrived anterior to the date of the Pro clamation, the Piesident directs, that all such British vessels be allowed to depart from our ports with their cargoes. As others may ar rive between the date of the Proclamation, and the time of its reaching you, he also di rects, that, as to these, the forfeitures and pe nalties of the aforesaid acts of April the 18th, j 1318, and May the 15th, 1820, be not enfor ced: but that they too be permitted to depart. And if, after you shall have received the Proc •amatioo, British vessels should arrive within .he ports of the United. States from some one or more of ti»e said British colonial ports, in •gsorance of the existing prohibition, which he laws impose to their entry, the President further directs, that, in the case of all British vessels so arriving, prior to the first day of Ju ly next, you cause notice to be given to them, as soon as possible, of the prohibition, accom panied by orders for their departure within twenty-four hours, without unlaiding; upon their failure to comply with which orders, you will proceed to enforce against them the pro visions of the acts last recited. In case of all British vessels arriving within our ports, from any of the aforesaid British co lonial ports, after the first of July, you will, forthwith,enforce against them the provisions of those acta. I have the honor to remain, Your obedient servant, RICHARD RUSH. TO THE EDITORS. Gentlemen: I observe in your paper of this morning, a coarse ebullition of passion over the signature of the bravt Gen. Romulus M. Sadn df.ks, dated on board the Steamboat, the 2d of March, 1827, at night, some parts of which I wish room in your paper to notice. The brave General commences with claim ing a right to be heard, because he had not an opportunityof replying to certain remarks made by mein debate. What prevented his having an opportunity of replying, so far as he knew, when he left the city? He took his pay for the full term, and fled on the 2d of March, leaving much important business undone, and his own resolution (which, I believe, is the only mea sure originated by him during the Congress) undetermined, without knowing whether it would be further acted on, or if he would have an opportunity to reply. The General next exults, that in his first speech he confined himself to the subject, with out reflecting upon the private conduct or character of any one! What astonishing forbearance!— What cause of exultation for an honorable man! He (the general from North Carolina^ made a speech without reflecting upon the private con duct or character of any one! In the second speech, the General was not so forbearing; he could not exult at his having omitted to reflect on private character in that. Mr Buckner took exception, and said something about his disposition to meet danger, See. This, the Ge neral says, he “did not deem of a character re quiring any particular notice at his hands.”— The notice taken of the General by Mr. Buck ner, was understood almost universally in the House as hurling defiance at the General, with unequivocal intimations of belief that he was a coward. The retreat of the General will long be remembered, and laughed at It was mas terly of its kind, and showed him an exprrt fo lower of Falstaff. Seizing the term prudence, used by Mr Buckner, he sought to hide his cowardice, by skulking under the mantle of Fa* biut! No, hu did no'deem what Mr. B. sa*d as deserving any particular notice. “If (he says) I had so considered it, or if it Ind been so considered by others, whose opinions I hold in respect, as falling fiom a man responsible for what he said, and I had suffered it to pass, and should then notice any thing personal from '.he member from Ohio, I should deserve the epithet of the meanest poltroon in existence.” A narration of a very few facts, connected with this business, will enable the curious to determine th* lr<*» •*•»»«• •' *J>*- *•.».. ocuc ral’s courage and conduct. The intimation from Mr. Buckner was understood and receiv ed as a charge of cowardice by almost every one; but the General thought the better part of valor was discretion, and did not deem it wor thy of notice. Mr. B was in health, and un derstood to hold himself responsible. The Ge neral had served with me four years, and knew that, owing to a permanent defect of vision, I could not see, without a glass, to distinguish him from a sheep ten paces distant He knew, also, that, owing to a recent paralytic attack, I had then the use of only a part of my limbs, one arm having been carried in a sling for some weeks. (This, however, was a temporary disability, and would not inter pose any objection to the giving or receiv ing a challenge, though it might be a reason for postponing the time of meeting) These things the Gen knew; but he had been censur ed for his retreat from Mr B and smarted un der it. Something must he done. I have rea son to believe, that after my remarks were closed for the first day, he sought to get some words that I was supposed to use, to take ex ception to, and not finding them exactly as he expected, he became pacified; tha^afterwards, during the latter part of the day, he was told by at least two members of the Ilousr, that I would not accept a challenge, if lie sent me one. Upon this, his courage wonderfully revived— but he was not sure what reception he would meet with. He resolved not to fight, while he would get the credit of showing a bold front; and therefore determined ou sending the note of inquiry of the 26th ult. "tttiieh he preferred about seven hours after I had given the offmee if I gave it at all. He then sent a challenge, which was disposed of the way the public al ready know. The General knew it was impos sible for tne to meet him on equal terms% on ac count of bodily disability, and because no man with a glass could take the necessary sight for a discharge of fire arms. Mr. Buckner had no such defects. The Gen. did pass over the cow ardice directly cast upon him by Mr. B. and did then notice something personal (what I do not yet know] from the member from Ohio. Is not the case made out, when, according totheGen eral’s own shewing, he deserves “the epithet of the meanest poLTnooif in EXISTENCE?” I think an impaitial public will so determine. The General proceeds to declare, he does not propose to notice me further than what may be necessary to his own character for consisten cy and truth: for, he says, “I could no* speak of the member from Ohio, as language has no term of reproach, the mind no idea of contempt sufficiently strong, to express my opinion of such a character.” What a sad dilemma the man is in! He affects, while he has made me the subject of several hours’ speaking, to hold me in too much contempt to speak of me, and then he proceeds with a half column of close printed remarks, to defend his character for con stttemy and truth! Heaven preserve the mark! What a consistent, truth-loving, high-minded, brave man, this runaway General is! I do not intend to follow the General into par ticalars, but will observe, that be does not deny receiving his instructions how to proceed on hit resolution from managers. He does not deny that he involved the friends of Mr. Clay, to save the country from the ruin that would attend the elevation of General Jackson He doea not deny that he was a new convert to the cause of General Jackson, nor that he was a candidate for the Solicitor General’s office, or that that influenced his conduct; but denies that the office had been, or was, vacant He might have expected It to be vacant, and have been in flue need, as I left it to him to say. He proclaims his want of knowledge where I got my infor mation, but says, **If he received it from any one of the Delegation from that Snte, (North Carolina) if there be any one of them who could hold friendly communion with such a person, and he will avow himself, I will place on his forehead a mark, which he will find it difficult to remove.” Let the dear brave General keep cool—he should -not get into a passion. The information did not come irotn any of his col leagues, though I have held communion with all of them, and esteem some of them friends. He will be spared the trouble of endeavoring to withdraw public attention from the indtliblc brand on hts own forehead, by placing a mark on any ot his colleagues. The Geueral concludes his remarks by say ing, “There are men in this nation who, to ef fect their political ends, would league with the Devil to-day, and renounce him to-morrow.”— I have no doubt the General fell the truth of this remark. He, and some of his coadjutors, are strong living instances of its truth, to the extent of forming the league, though we are yet with out evidence of the renunciation, and I fear the day is distant when they will venture to re nounce the Devil, and his works.
