THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 19, ’.827.
A letter, dated the 12th’ inst. has been re ceived in Richmond, from a gentleman in Char lottesville, giving the unwelcome information that Mr. Madison, who, it will he rememberedf is Rector of the Virginia University, was taken extremely ill with the cholera morbus in the night of the 11th, and that on the morning of the 12th, at eleven o’clock, he was no better.— The Board of Visitors being in session, Mr. Monroe Sc many other distinguished gentlemen were at the side of the sick bed, and Mr. Jef ferson’s ft ieml and favorite physician Or. Dun gkson was in attendance. We learn from the New-York Gazette, that the Spanish squadron under Com. Laborde, sail ed from Havana the 2nd inst. on a cruise.— Com. Porter was still at Key West, but several of his brigs were ctuising. A felucca of about eighty tons, with a com plement of about eighty nun, under command of a colored person, sailed from Havana on the 1st inst. to protect the coast. She is rigged with three lattccn sails, two jibs, three square topsails, three top gallant sails, and a square sail. Capt. Butler, lately anived at New-York fiom Puerto Cabeilo, btings intelligence that the country was in a very unsettled state. The gutvs in ihe castle had all been dismounted by j order of Bolivar, and all the troops were leav jui* Puerto Cabeilo and Laguira for Carthagena. Duel.—The Providence (R t.) American of Friday, says that a duel was fought in Pawtuck et on Wednesday,‘‘be tween a French gentle man of high respectability, who acts in an of ficial capacity under the French government, and a Polonesr,formerly a general in the. French army during the revolution—the names of the individuals vve cannot learn. It seems they came with their seconds and surgeons from Boston t© Pawtucket on Tuesday evening, se lected their ground upon the new turnpike, a short distance from the village, met at 4 o'clock in the morning, and at the first fire the French man was shot through the fieshy part of both his thighs. His antagonist, who was uninjur ed, saw him conveyed to Blake’s tavern, where cordial forgivenesses were exchanged, and then took an abrupt leave of the state, hiving depart ed, it is said, in the New-York steamboat.” An adjourned meeting of the citizens of Washington, having for itt important.object an expression of sentiment in regard to the pro-11 posed Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, was held in that city on Tuesday evening last. The pro ceedings, which, in our opinion, are not less wise than they are energc»ic, we have copied fn ixteusoy trusting that they may have a saluta ry effect in accelerating the march cf public spirit, already happily commenced in Alexan dria. PUBLIC MEETING. At an adjourned Meeting of the Citizens of Washington County, Enst of Rock Creek, held at the City Hull on Tuesday afternoon, the 171h inst. to receive the Report of the Committee appointed at the Public Meeting on the 9i!i instant—the M.wou m the Chair, and JosrtrH (i.VLts, Jr. Secretary— The Report of the Committee having been received and debated at large, it was Hesohtd, As the sense of this meeting, that the immediate, and, still more, the eventual prosperity of this City and adjacent country, will be so eminently promoted by the Chesa peake and Ohio Canal, as to make it their deci ded interest to aid its accomplishment, by till the means in their power. That this will be the case is demonstrated by j the unquestioned fact, that, by the use of coal, the annual saving to the city,in the price ol; fuel alone, would at present exceed one hun- j tired thousand dollars, and would continue to ! increase with its growth. That, in addition to the gain* from this source, the diminished prices of grain, flour, lime, lumber, butter, whiskey, meats, marble, iron, ami vatious other commodities, which will be supplied to an extent only limited by the demand, and which will in no inconsiderable egiee, be paid by the fish and manufactures of •ir vjcinity, and by the profits of the extensive . - le* which the canal will create, must inevi t'.'v bring borne the benefits ol this great ob> rz *o every inhabitant of the City. o’ved. That it he recommended to the Cor l ,.ti;n cf the City of Washington to sub v r’sbo one million of dollars to the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, on the condition that the Con fess of the United States will guarantee the payment <*f a loan to that amount. Resolved, That the Congress of the United S’jktes be assured, in case of such loan being ef fected, that the interest thereon will be paid, and the principle redeemed, by the said Corpo ration and the Levy Court; to secure which, a pledge be given to lay faxes, if requisite, on the city and the other portion of the county of Washington Last of Rock Creek. Resolved, That application be made to Con gress to convey to the City, in aid of the Canal, the lots unsold in the City. Resolved, That, in case taxation shall be re sorted to as aforesaid, it be stipulated that the sums paid by individuals forsuclctax shall be repaid out of the div idends that may be receiv ed on the stock, so far as the dividends may be adequate thereto; and that, at the time ot pay ing such tax, a certificate be given to the indi xidual making payment of such obligation, which certificate shall be transferable to bearer. Resolved, That if it shall .appear that the Cor poration, or the Levy Court for the County ol Washington, have not power to lay taxes for the purpose aforesaid, the said Corporation and Levy Court be requested to apply to Congress for a grant of such power for this specific pur pose. Resolved, That a committee of thirteen be ap pointed to present to the Corporate Authori ties of the City, the Levy Court of the County of Washington, and to the President and Con gress of tbe United States, a copy of the fore going proceedings, with power, in co-opera lion with the said Corporate authorities, or any other authorities of the District, to use all pro per means in aid of this momentous object. Ordered That the said Committee be appoint ed by the Chairman. R. C. WEIGHTMAN, Chairman, J. GALES. Jr. Secretary. From the New- York Statesman. TRIAL OF THE REV. MR WEEMS. 'The trial of this pretended clergyman, for lar ceny, came on on Thursday at the Municipal Court, Boston. The Court House was crowded from live commencement to the conclusion.— i His counsel set up the plea of insanity, and evi dence of the Rev. Drs. Gardner, Junks, and se veiul other divines, was offered to support it. It appeared that lie had preached onceor twice in Salem, as often in Reading, and once in Bos ton. He was educated at the South, and pass ed some lime in Andover previous to his arriv ing in Boston; and the witnesses in his behalf spoke in high urms of his education, talents, gentlemanly deportment, &c. Ilis sermons were said to have been elegant in composition, and ac- j ceptuble in delivery, though we have heard that but a small portion of them were the produc tions cf his own brain. Although it was prov ed beyond a question, that at times he has been slightly disordered in his head, yet the jury IVlt themselves bound to bring a verdict of Cuiliy. The prisoner exhibited a sickly, emaciated appearance, and one al’ogcthcr exciting sym pathy. During the trial lie sat mule, though not without the appearance of considerable agi tation; and for the greater part of the lime re- j dined his head in his handkerchief which he held in his upraised hand. The opinion has ob tained, that whatever may have been his con duct before he was denounced by the clergy, he has since not hesitated to venture farther into j the ruinous paths of vice and profligacy. • -^ From the National Intellimncer. The Virginia Palladium, unci^another paper, have undertaken tojlraw inferences from our silence on the subject of Gen. Jackson’s Letter, which they are not warranted in doing. We arc not the champions of Mr. Clay—wc have sometimes differed from him in opinion, and sometimes disliked Ids political movements— but we have that confidence iff the elevation of his sentiments, and his disdain of meanness or equivocation, that wc would not give credence to much stronger testimony, than is furnished by the Letter of Gen Jackson, against the pu rity of his conduct in the Presidential Election. We have no doubt that the facts, which Gen Jackson states of his own knowledge, are indis putably true. Hut we utterly disbelieve in Mr. Clay’s having authorized any such overtures as he speaks of. We do not believe that he would -have accepted the office of Secretary of State ftnder Gen. Jackson. Wedoucrr believe that he could, without disgrace, personal and polit ical, have voted for Gen. Jackson for the Pres idency, with his recorded opinions respecting him staring him in the face. We did not say all this in publishing Gen. Jackson’s Letter, be cause we were perkily willing it should go to the world unattended by our comments; and be cause, whilst we felt no obligation to volun teer a defence of Mr. Clay, we were entirely convinced that lie was not only able, but wil ling, to defend himself against any such charg es as those, brought forward by whomsoever. Wc therefore protest against any inferences being drawn from, our silence in reference to this subject, or to any other. We sometimes find it our duty to be silent, and wc inflict pain up on ourselves in refraining to speak our minds, when every fe» ling of nature is roused against j unmerited injury to ourselves or others. [Fromthe Democratic Press.] PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.—No. VIII. In our previous numbers we have shown the perfect consistency of Mr. Adams and his re publican conduct during the three first years ol his holding his seat in liie National Senate. We shall r.ow exhibit his conduct for the two sub sequent years. It will be seen that in those years he was the right arm ol the administra tion, and that the part he took in its iavor was as conspicuous as that ot the Prime Minister in the Parliament of Great Britain. Fourth Session, 1806 7. At this session Mr. Adams was chairman ol the committee to which all bills, resolutions, a mendments and motions were committed—He was also chairman ol the Library committee— He was also chairman of the Judiciary commit tee—He was on the committees in relation to the Army—Public Debt—Intercourse with St. Domingo—Fire at Portsmouth—On Weights and Measures, and on many others. The fore going were all important committees, hut those that follow evince in a strong degree the confi dence that was placed in him by Mr. Jefferson’s friends in'lhe senate, and in these measures, be i acted generally in opposition to the federal I members of the senate. He was on the com mittee in relation to Burr’s conspiracy— He j was on the committee on the President’s mes j sage in relation to that conspiracy, which re j ported on the day of the reception of the mes i sage, a bill to suspend the Habeas Corpus, I which passed through the senate the same day. I_He was on a committee in relation to Burr’s associates. At this session he acted with the republican in opposition to the federal senators on a call on the President, in relation to the | non-intercourse. This is all the evidence I shall ■ adduce from the doings of this session, of his ' uniformity and consistency of conduct, and if we know any thing of the weight of evidence this will be considered plenary. W’e shall digress in a small degree from the present subject of these papers to introduce in chronological order some important incidents of this session. It was at this session that Hen ry Clay, the steady and consistent champion of the American policy, first look his seat in the National Senate. It was also at this session that the first systematic step was ta-ken to introduce internal improvements. On the 21st of Feb ruary, 1807, Mr. Adams moved the following resolution: hesolved, That the Secretary of the Treasu ry be directed to prepare and report to the Se nate at their next session a plan for the applica tion of such means as are constitutionally with in the power of Congress, to the purpose of o peniijg roads, for removing obstructions in riv ers, and making canals, together with a state ment of the undertakings of that nature now existing within the United States, which as ■objects of public improvement may require and deserve the aid of government. Thu resolution did not immediately pass, but under a different modification was adopted pre vious to the termination of that session, and produced the celebrated report of Mr. Gallatin, which has laid the basis of a system that bids fair to bind together and strengthen our Union. At the close of the subsequent session Mr. Gallatin made his elaborate report. It was too laic to take any measures in relation to it, but I the report was primed and ordered to be diffus ed amongst thepeople on notion of Mr. Adams. At the meeting in Boston for the choice of delegates to the Harrisburg Convention one gentleman spoke of General Jackson as an old friend of the American System, and Mr. Adams as a recent convert to that system. We have now shown an earlier friendship on the part of Mr. Adams to internal improvements than can be adduced by Genera! Jackson or any candi date that has been everVarted as the opponent of Mr. Adams. Ilis was the very first systema tic movement to advance this great National System. We shall show in a future paper that Mr. Adams’ friendship to domestic manufac tures was of a yet earlier date, and that at least eight years before the resolution offered by him in relation to roads and canals, his views in re lation to domestic manufactures were in ad \ance of all his countrymen. Sll}NEY. To the Editors of the United States Gazette, Gentlemen,—I send you a copy of a letter written by Thomas Jefferson, in his 77th year, which deserves preservation for ihe beauty of its sentiments. It owes its existence to the fol lowing circumstance. An amiable lady of New York* wrote a poem, styled Rosalie, which she dedicated to Mr. Jeffersor, to him a copy was sent by the jfTinter, with a letter, to which the subjoined letter is a reply. C. M. • Under the assumed name of Palmvra Johnson. * Montickllo, Dee. 30.—20. Sin,—I have duly received your favor of ihc 20th inst. and with it Mrs. Palmyra Johnson’s poetic tale of Rosalie, and I beg leave, through the same channel to return her my thanks for it. I have read it w ith great pleasure, and that is saying much for it from a reader of 77. But the effusions of a feeling heart and delicate fan cy, expressed in smooth numbers, make their impression even on the dull sensibilities of that age, and the sympathies with the fate of a Con stance, and fortune of a Rosalie, can still he felt. I have more especially to thank her for the partialities towards myself, which she has been pleased to express in Iter dedication, iif which she has ascribed to me much more than I have merited or claimed, and'I pray you, sir, to accept the assurance of my great respect. TH: JEFFERSON. Extract of a letter from an American gentle man at Paris, dated May 30 received in Phila delphia:—“Mr. Warden has found a book 100 years old, in which is the whole of Captain Symmes’ theory. He intends to semi it to the Philosophical Society. Strickland’s Reports are publishing iti Paris, and will soon appear. The publisher has promised to give Mr. R. a copy as a present for the Improvement Soci ety.” The Ann Maria, a Holstein ship lately arri ved at Hamburgh from Vera Cruz, with 212,000 dollars, on account of the Elberfeld trading company, it being the first direct return of mo ney for their shipments of German munufac tuns.—It is stated that the beautiful remains of the temple of Eryctheum at Athens have been destroyed. A ball from the Tu:kish army struck a column which supported one of the angles of the edifice, and it suddenly fell, and ci usho-d uuder the ruins the widow of the brave Gen. Gourra.— German paper. Ancient Attire and Modern Manners. The fine gentleman of “the good old days” before the Revolution, as. he is described in the paintings and portraits of the times, strutted forth in a^uge coat of red or white broadcloth, of most voluminous dimensions, whose ample skirts covered his whole person as securely as the outer garments of recent fashions. Broad plates of silvered metal, or substantial dirks of horn, were arranged in rows upon its sides, in the places of finical gilded buttons, to pay a double debt, as fastenings and ornaments. The closely fitted sleeves were opened at the bottom, to display the cunning of the laundress in the composition of endless plaits, and the ruffles emerged front the aperture to guard the com plexion of the band. The superior extremity was dignified by a venerable wig, and surmount ed by a three-pronged and cocked-up hat. The trim garments of wnmc/i/.:0rtaWe-denominatio»s, met at the knee with the long stockings of silk or wool, and were bound with a light band, so adjusted as to display the symmetrical ptopor tions of the limbs. The shoes sharpened to a keen point, glittered with the brilliancy of huge and highly polished buckles, and were glowing with the appliances of oil and blackball. 1 he neck was enriched by a few yards of cambric, negligently twisted about. The false collar, tire equivocal testimony in favor of the shirtlcss wight, was as much unknown as the patented improvements of Day Sc Martin, which now fur nish mirrors to animate our great men to fu ture exertions; nor did the face peep out front between immovable barriers of bleached and starched cloth, I?ke the countenance of a pork er grinning through two gate-posts. It makes the heart sad, to think of the stately caparison of the dames, who entertained the visits of these antique beaux. The gown of rich brocade, or of rustling silk, flowing out in many a yard of train ar.d be-flounced and be-furbelowcd in all directions, the tafty pile of head-gear towering over the brow of the beautiful, the delicate, and gorgeous coloured skirt, the ruffles bristling round the neck, and the demure cap, form a picture of graceful drapery, moving those of unfortunately recent date, to mourn for depart* ed taste. Oh! that we had been our own grand* fathers, and they had been their grandsons, that we might have worn red for blue, and white instead of black; and flourished in broad skirt ed coats, and immeasurable vests.
