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

the country was in a very unsettled state. The

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

wise than they are energc»ic, we have copied

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
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.

'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.]
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
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.

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.

MR. WILLIAM W. potter, Respected Sir-1
have been troubled for the last fourteen yearn with
a consumptive complaint, spitting blood, and almost con
stant coughing. Seeing an advertisement in the Utica
Sentinel and Gazette, o£a late invention called Por

and can state from actual experience, that it is true to
its motto, and that trying is the naked truth, and like
Thompson’s eye water, it stands unrivalled. My pen
will not permit me to describe the grateful feelings I
have towards joufor the discovery you have made;

being afflicted with a consumption of health, I am now
blessed with a beef and pork consumption, thank God.
