»• Melancholy succession of Events.—
The death ot Mr. Alfred Street of ths city, has
excited thsj-de* pen sorrow. He had recently
set up in bu<*inr««in connexion with Mr Sanxay,
Thev had removed their bookstore to one of the
handsomest stores to the city—and the taste ol
the room, and tne beauty of their arrangements,
had drawn manv persons to see it. Mr. Street
was a verv mode«t and deserving young man—
singularly handsome in hts person, and amiable
in his manners. Health seemed to bloom upon
hi* cheek—and what was more than the rest,
the a (fictions of an accomplished and interest
ing voung Ladv of the city were his. But these
bright prospects were overcast, and blasted by
an lusidious duets?, to which, after lingering
some weeks he fell a victim. In the course of
one da> he “as a bridegroom, and a corpse! In
the last moments of his existence, his Bride uni
ted her destinies with his, to enlitle her to the pri
vilege of performing the last offices fur her hus
band. The following paragiaphs will tell the
simple annals of one day:
Married on Thursday morning, the 12th inst,
bv the Rev. Philip ’Courtney, Mr. Alfred
Street, of the Firm of Sanxay & Street, ol
this place, to Miss Aglu.% second daughter of
Mr Giles Pimt, all'of Richmond.
Died, on Thursday evening l.«st, after a lin
gering illness Alfred Street, in the 27th
year of his age.
A perusal of the above affecting narrative, ta
ken from the Richmond Enquirer, has led me to
pen the following imperfect lines.
Oh for the very harp «f Heaven, to strike the
notes ot love,
Oh for the pure and precioos fire, that lifts our
souls above.
That lifts our souls above the thoughts of passion
and oi ' ust.
Ami show* the seal of God, upon the children
of the dust.
Oh for a gift of poetry, to weave a song of
youth.
Of gentle woman’s foundness, of her firmness,
and her truth,
Of the glowing love we cherish, the busy hopes
«e feel.
And of the dark, and heavy griefs, Time hast
ens to reveal.
With beautv beaming on his brow, and hope with
in his breast,
'He stai ted on li»e course of life, with all youth’s
joyous zest,
He was the model of a man, in feelings and in
form, .
Fit to e' jov the sun of lite, and fit to breast its
storm.
And meet it was that such an one, ahou'd feel the
magic power.
That tnrows a holy radiance, round life’s timer
tain hour.
That pa nts a f*»vely rainbow, on each cloud of
solemn gloom.
And di-pels the murky darkness that hangs around
the tomb.
- The Spotless shrine on which Le threw the offer
ing <d hi* heart.
Was fair «trt*a.i.s hail pictured, with their soul
dei ei'i.ift art;
And the bright and lovely being, he was soon to
call ins own.
Had given her young affections to him, and him
alone.
And when the evening star arose, nod 'I the
world was sttil.
When the moon was in the Heavens ana the
mist9 were on the hill,
W'henMhe sympathy of Nature, and the vestal
queen of night,
Gave to the voice a whisper, to the eye a dreamy
light.
Oh then how Hope deluded, that young and hao
py pair.
And called up fleeting visions, unsubstantial as
the air.
How it pointed to the years of dwelling on the
earth,
And all the joys that cluster, round the sweet do
mestic hearth.
Ay! all the world combined might strive to blast
those joys iu vain.
And gnunt poverty might come, with pale sick
ness in its tram,
But let them share each other’* fate, and spite
of everv ill.
They could united smile at all, and love would
triumpn still.
But even as the lover spoke, the lustre of his
And the^bright hectic of his cheek, proclaimed
that death was nigh:
Alas those fearful auguries! they told a tale too
And he knew that soon forever, he must bid the
world adieu.
Thus were the budding hopes of youth, crushed
in then earlv bloom.
And the very torch of Hymen, was placed upon
the tomb;
And to the sick and dying man, that girl her fair

' MAJOR DOWNING’S LETTER.
Washington, 2d November, 18S3.
To my old friend, Mr. Dwight, of the New Yorl
Daily Advertiser.
The Congressmen are jest beginnin to arrive
here, end 1 suppose in a short time we shall have
them here as thick as huckleberries; and the
Ginerel is brushtn round now, and says the Mes
sa"e roust be finished and printed off hand, and
we are all busy as bee9 in gittin it dove tailed to
gether; and after next week, the Gmeral says,
there can’t be any more alterstinus. It is the
hrst message I ever had any hand in; and tho’ 1
say it, I guess you will s$y it is about as coin
plete a thing as ever was sent express any
where.
I have been to work on it ever since we was ai
the Rip Raps and tho’ it ha9 been sometimes all
polled to bits, to git in some notions we did’nt
think on', vet it will look pritty slick, l tell you,
when it's done; and we will lav on paint enuf to
kiver up all the cracks and seams.
We shall give a pritty good lick at the Bank,
and won’t leave as much on’t standing as would
make a good sized oven. It is curious now to
see howeasv it is to build-up. nr nock all to bits,
anv things on paper. Now jest see about the
Batik. There it stands in Chesnut street,* with
its hundred cord of specie, and its cart load ol
book*; and its branches here and there. a:l busy
and lull of darks, and directors, and folks in Eu^
rope, and all about creation dealin with it; and
the bi okers in M all street all busy about i^ and
Biddle’s bills goin about, and most folks think in
thev are better than hard dollars; and all the old
men and women hoidm the stock, supposio ii
wiil go up again as high as thev paid lor it; anil
I, and the Ginetal, and Amos Kindle, and Mr
Van Buren, lalkm over it; and one line til the
Message nocks it all into kToil• in wood. For you
see when “ The Government”*ay« a thing musl
be jest there is no help lor it. VVe can’t s*and
to chat about trifle*. The Gin'Mal has smashed
.U .I.... Ih. I,4l Mho u#u I. tr-,1 .limit It —
“ Biddle and the Bank mu*t b** smashed,” says
he, *» Major;”—and so smash they go, Congress
or no Congress.
The next thing was the Ingins. Here the Gin
eral is at home: and I don’t pretend to say no
thing, for I never did like an login, and never
can. The cheiokets give us a good deal id trou
b!e in Georgia last ytar; but the Gmeral took
■ stdfs with Geoigia, because • e had a good man?
■ friends there, and Mi Van Buren hail too; for
that state was the ony one that nominated him
! Vice President a sp»*M ago; and if he had got in
'there, aod Mr. Crawford President, who was
, ailtn all over with some piagy apj.'leplexy—I and
; the Gmeral would never have been hearn on ar
tei wards. B it no matter—the Gmeral says he
didn't make mat tre:»ty with the Chemkees—and
it was unde »n long ago, he has enymost forgot
it and tma'ies oughtent to last forever. Bui
this treat* «>th toe Creeks in Atnbama he did
make, and nt* knows all about it; and he mean*
to stand ns it. ai^d mrn ad the «quatiers oft the
land in Alabama, j»stas they wanted him to do
in Georgia: out hp would’ot. There Is trouble
enough about it, [ teM vou, and you don’t know
nothin about it in York. But the Gmpral is

Pioclamatiou of the Governor of Alabama, you

You need’ot sav much about it, says he, in the
Message—we’d keep that for a proclamation.—
M etl. says l, Gmeral, vou are a ma»ter hand at
gittm into trouble. But, says he. Major, aint I
a muster one at gittin out of one, says he?
We’ve got an old trunk up Chamber, full of
troubles, old Laws, and Treaties, and Contracts,
ana State Claims, and whenever we want any
powder, all we’ve got to do is to open that, and
snook among old papers, and get up a row in no
time. TheGmeml likes this a leetle better than

the ony way [ can git rid of it, is to make our
folks down stairs do it, it I see it givesany of cm

Your Friend, J. DOWNING, Major,

From the Richmond Enquirer.
“To Nicholas Middle. Esq.,
Picsident of me Bank of the United States:
Sir: The time is fast approaching when it 19
1 expected that the Stockholders in the Bank of
| of tne United Slates will have presented *o Con
! gress a memorial for a renewal of its charier,
' and as 1 consider you the organ of the stock
holder*, I will rake the liberty of suggesting to
you, what, in my numble opinion, will be a mat
ter of policy, as well as courtesy to the Presi
dent of the United States. It is this: that when
the memorial is presented to Congress, a mem
ber will a»K, that a committee be appointed to
wait on the President, and request of him a pro
gramme of such a Bank a- he may think fit to
offer to Congress. In taking this respectful
course, I have no doubt that ne will readily com
ply; he having ut» a former occasion, in one of
his vetoes, said as much. In the Batik of the
United States I am not a stockholder, yet 1 feel
a gieat wish that it may be re chartered, inas
much as il has given to ihe Uoi'ed States the
best currency in the world. Indeed, l feel con
fident the country cannot do without this Bank
or one like it; so tnat if. this one is put down in
Philadelphia, a new one is to be put up in New
York, fur the purpose of ruling all the monev,
all the politics, and all the commerce of the
United States. With these opinions I subscribe
myself
Respectfully, yours,
Onf. of the People.’
Richmond Or:. 28, 1833.
Remarks on ihe above by the New York Daily
Advertiser.
This is one of the most extraordinary proposi
tions ,..it we have ever met with in a public
newspaper in this country. That the present
chief magistrate of the United States has been
making exertions, ever since be came into office,
to absorb in himself all the powers i f the gov
ernment, so far at least as to enable him to exer
cise an absolute control over the operations of
the several branches, has been in our judgment
perfectly obvious- And that those exertions
hive been crowned with much success, is equal*
ly apparent. But we did not expect to see such
a degrading proposition as that contained in the
article quoted above from the Richmond Enqui
rer, the avowed friend of popular rights, the
, jealous guardian of the principles and powers of
the constitution, and professedly the watchful and
determined oppnser of all encroachments by the
executive upon legislative prerogatives.
The proposition here is, that upon making an
other application for a renewal <.f tne charter of
the national bank, before an? further proreedings
: are had. that “ a committee be appointed to wait
upon the President, and request of him a pro
' gramme of surh a bank us he m\y think fit to
offer to Congress.” General Jackson has alrea
; dv a-sumed, and acted upon the principle, of
' negativing anv legislative measure mat does not
suit his taste. This is virtually subjecting the
i legislative branch of the government so *ar to
' executive control, as that no measure which has
received the sanction of the Senate, and me Re
presentatives of the people, will be suffered to
pass into a law, if it does not comport with Ins
notion-, or answer his views and pm poses. T'-is
is negative usurpation; for though the conslitu
turn gives the power of withholding his signature
from bids which haye received the -auction of
* the legislative hou-e». it was never intended, nor
\ expected, that he would exercise it on every oc
casion, when a .measure did not pxacllv tally
with his own preconceived notions of policy, or
as the case mat be, with Ins seifish views or
; whims. The power of the veto would never
have been vested in the executive, if the conven
tion, or the ppople. had imagined it would have
been thus perverted and abused. It is no* to be
supposed that a chief magi-trate, let him ne ta
ken from what portion of the country he may,
can be better acquainted with the general inte
rests and concerns of the penpte than their Re
; presenta'ives art. This is clear from the nature
; of things; and it is rendered certain bv the in
troduction of the provision in the constitution.
, that if two thirds of both houses pus- the bill
^notwithstanding the veto, it becomes a law with
f ».i< thn At-a/Mitioo *a nrvrt»h*l l irvn
. -- -rr f .
j But the proposition in the foregoing article in
i the Rt. hmnml Koquier, goes much further than
! the principle of t1'. ve*o implies, even upon toe
extended construction o' the power which has
recently been adopted.
It is, f»r Congress to appoint a committee to
wait upon the President before hand, and a*k the
favor of him to condescend so fir as to furnish
them with such a bill for the renewal of the bank
•charter, as •• he may think fit to offer to Con
gress" This the writer of the article s.tvs
would be “ courtesy to the President." In our
judgment, it would go far beyond mere courtesy
|—it would be mean, abject, ami slavish submis
sion to arbitrary power. Tin* President has no
i more right to demand this of the repiesentalives
of the people of the United Slates, than he has
'to insist on th-’ir funning themselves upon the
I model of the old Parliament of Paris, ami to act
only in registering the deciees of the monarch
| Much less have those representatives ihe tight to
degrade the character of those whom tin v repre
I sent, those from whom both the Preside it and
! themselves derive their power, and surrender
| their dignity arid independence, as well a* t^eir
'constitutional authority, at the footstool of a
! usurping execuliv magistrate.
! Much as we • ink the interests of thptnun
! try, a*- well - the government, require (he re
I chartering .1 the ba* k. we would murh rather see
that institution annihilated, than to witness «uth
a disgraceful and degrading course pursued bv
Ihe legislative bramh of the government* as t»’3t
to which we have alluded. I' would accomplish
what appears to be i favorite object wnh the prp.
arnt executive—n would reduce the government
: to **a sample machine." requiring nothing to
manage it- except a despotic disuosi'ion and a
fearless hand. both of trfnch might be easily ub
. tained

I contempt. Reduced to aby.luie want, he one
day went out with ihe in ennon to nut an end

money, though it were ever so despicable'a tri

could help it, a farming of what he might ob
. tain
i The first »hing fhat drew his attention was a
j heap ot « oais shot nut of cart* on the paveinenr
i before a house. He offered himself to shovel or
; wheel them into the place where ihey were to be
I iaid, and was emplovod. He received a few
: pence for his labor; and then, in pursuance of the
, saving part of his plan, requested a small gra
i tuity of meat and drink, which was given him.
1 He then looked out for the next thing which
ought chance to offer; and went with indefatiga
ble industry through a succession of servile em
ployments. of longer or shorter duration, still
scrupulously avoiding, as far as possible, the ex
pense of a penny.
He promptly seized every opportunity which
could advance Ins design, without regarding the
meanness of occupation or appearance. By
this method, he had raised after a considerable
time, money enough to purchase in order to sell
again, a few cattle, of which he had taken pains
to understand the value. He speedily but cau
tiously turned hi* first gains into second advan
tage*; retaining without a single deviation, his
extreme parsimony;—and thus advanced by de-{
grers into larger transactions and incipient
wealth. I did not hear or have forgotten the
continued course of his life; but the final result
was that he more than recovered his lost pos
session*. and died an inveterate miser, worth
<<60,600. I have always recollected this as a
Si.oal install e, though In an unfortunate ard

“ Beauty and Booty ”—It will be remember
ed that several officers of the British army, who
were under Gen. Paikenham. at the battle of
New Orleans, have lately published a statement,,
denying unequivocally, that •» Beauty and Boo'
ty” were the watch-words of the British army,
oo the day of the battle. The gentlemen, if aien
of honour, as perhaps they are, may be entitled
to credence, but the fact is by no means sufficient
to show that it was not the inteutiun of Gen.
Parkenham, in the event of succes, to pillage and
tack the city;—in other words to despoil it of its
Beauty and Booty ”
We nave lately become possessed of informa
tion which establishes this point beyond the pos
sibility of denial. *e having unimpeachable testi
mony on the subject. A friend of ours was, a
few dayssioce, a fellow passenger in a stage from
the \Vest, with a gentleman who belonged to
Gen. Jackson’s army, at the time referred to —
He, in the course of conversation on the sobject
of the denial of the British officers, stated, that
he was severely wounded, and taken prisoner in
the battle fought near New Orleans, on the 23d
December, 1814. While a prisoner he was fre
quently visited by several of Packeoham’s offi
cere, and he recotleets distinctly, that a common
subject of remark with them was, that in case
they obtained possession of New Orleans, the
city was to be given up to a three days pillage,
by the army. One of the officers in question, .
went so far as to ask the American genilem**,
what he would be pleased to have from the city,
