TO THE PUBLIC.
Recommended by the unanimous voice of my Whig fellow citizens, and a i3rge majority of the people of this down, for which I shall ever feel grateful: appointed to office by the lamented Harrison, whose memory I shall everrevere: no minated by John Tyler and my appointment con firmed by a Whig Senate; 1 had vainly hoped that it were only necessary for me to correct such a~ buses as 1 found in the administration of the Cus tom House, which 1 did, attend faithful! v to the discharge of my duties, and observe the rules laid down by Harrison and Tyler too, and approved by the whole Whig party, to retain peaceablv my sit uation. But ‘ the terms are sadly out of joint.” I have, without a momenf^warning, or for any as signed cause, been ejected from office; because I would not prove recreant to every principle of honor, and join in the.cry against that man of all others, whom I have most admired for his enlarg ed views, honesty of purpose, and nobleness of soul. * * I am the victim of treachery on one hand, and sycophancy on the other. My “taking off,” shall be told in a few words. Immediately on Mr. Tyler’s entrance upon the duties of Lis office. 1 waited UDon him at Brown's Hotel, at his request, when he express ed his views in relation to office holders, declar ing that they would be required faithfully to per form their duties^ abstaining from all improper interference, open or secret, with elections; that sycophancy and servility on their part should henceforth cease—they should he Freemen; thi* he would carry out regardless of all personal con siderations. With regard to removals, he would not act precipitately, remarking, that probably some improper appointments had already been made, but, addressing himself to me, he said emphatical ly, “ Yon need aprehend no danger. I shall r<ot un do what has been done by CMen. Harrison.” Notwithstanding the threats of the government paper, subsequently made, anl the acts of the Executive, I had apprehended no danger in this disfranchised District, until the removal of Jona than Roberts. About that time, a rumor was rift thatland all the officers connected with the Cus tom House in this place, were w be removed: and on the lhth day of September, I called up n the Secretary of the Treasury, the Honorable Wal ter Forward, to ascertain if there was any foun dation for the rumor, or, if any charges hud been preferred against me. He assured me that he was totally ignorant of the whole matter. The next day 1 addressed the following letter to a friend who 1 knew', would, in a few' days, leave the city for the Rip Raps, where he would join the Pre sident: Alexandria. September 17, 1812. De ar Sir—After 1 had, <,he pleasure of an inter view wdth you, yesterday, when you w ere good c nough to say, that you w'ould name to the Presi dent, the rumors in relation to my removal from office, I called upon the Secretary of the Treasu ry, from w hom 1 learned that no charges had been preferred against me, and that the rumors so far as he had any knowledge, were groundless. Withdrawn, as the President is, from the toils and cares of office, and suffering under deep af fliction, nothing but the most urgent necessity could induce me to obtrude myself upon him, and much less do I consider ;t proper, under existing circumstances; feeling as l do a confidence that he will not act upon the misrepresentations of interested, or malicious persons, without giving me a fair opportunity to rebut any false allega tions that may have. be?n made to ru.y prejudice. But on his return, should a favorable opportunity present itself, I shall esteem it a favour, if you will motion the subject to him, with an assur ance that no act of mine, before, or since in of fice, could give ji^st oflence, personally, or politi cally. I am Sir, your obedient servant, JOSEPH LACHES. To-Esq., Washington. On the 2Sth of September, three days before the time that rumor said, 1 was to be removed, i addressed the following letter to the President. Custom IIocsl, Alexandria, } Collector's office, £ept. 2c*, ) Sir: Y ou will pardon me, if 1 for a moment call your attention from the weightier affairs of state to a matter of minor importance, though one in which my deep interest will, 1 trust, be received as an apology for thus obtruding myself upon your notice at this time. tturingyour absence trom the Capital, a rumor has been put into circulation, and gained credence with nvujy, that I am to be removed ou the first of October. I have long been aware of the eflorts making to injure me, by some who are influenced by sel fish motives alone, but I have quietly and steadily attended to the duties of my office, regardless of _ • 1 1 A A % • A • • r* sipjius anu siret'i politicians, conn dently relying upon the assurances given me in an interview I had the honor to have with you, immediately after your entering upon the duties of your high station—to which 1 now beg leave to call your attention. 1 then had the pleasure to hear from you, that of all things, you most de spised cringing and sycophancy on the part of of fice holders, that you were determined to discoun tenance any tiling of the kind, and that no man should be displaced for an honest expression of opinion; but on the other hand, meddling politi cians, friends or foes, should most certainly be removed: and at the same time you were kind enough to remark, in order to remove any appre hensions that I might have, that after a review of ell the circumstances under which I came into office, I might depend upon your support. From that day to this, 1 have wholly abstained from interference in politics, and impressed u|>on tha minds of those connected with the Custom House in Alexandria, the propriety of their do ing likewise, and so tar as my knowledge extends, their conduct has been unexceptionable. I trust, that should any, through interested or malicious motives, prefer charges against me, you will give me a fair opportunity to rebut them. With a consciousness of recti;ade and a reliance upon your justice, I shall take no further notice of such rumors, unless officially informed of alle ga tions against me. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, JOS. EACHES. To His Excellency John Tyler, President, (7. S. This letter was mailed in Alexandria in time to meet the President on his return to Washing ton. After his return, I became convinced that I had good cause to apprehend danger, and on the 18th day of October, I called upon him, was re ceived politely, but it being a day on which the ^Cabmtf mot, the interview was necessarily brief. | In answer to my question, “ Do you, as has been reported, contemplate making removals in the Custom House, at Alexandria, or have you the matter under consideration,” he promptly replied, 44 under consideration, sir, in uli such cases, but I assure you, that you shall not be touched v:ithw.t a hearing.” On, or about the 2Sth of the same month, 1 again called upon the President, with the recom mendations of numerous citizens of Virginia, and the signatures of three hundred amt thirty-live oi my fellow-citizens of Alexandria, embracing nearly or quite all our principal merchants, and a large iHimber of our professional men and respectable mechanics, with a portion, of Loco Foco* or Dem ocrats—together with these, I had in my posses sion certificates of the correctness of my ac counts, and faithful performance of my duties, from the head* of the different Bureaus, with which I had any official communication—all of which I had intended to submit to the President's, inspection; but was prevented, by his informing me, that hje had- refused to receive any communi cations from the adverse party, and had requested them, if they had any charges to nuke, to file them in writing in the Treasury Department, open to my inspection, mai i coma repiy 10 uiem, and.at l:js leisure l.p would,investigate them, and justice should he done. Since which time I have not had the honor of seeing the President, except to call on him, when by invitation of the military, he visited Alexandria, on the 31st day of October last, and to pay my respects on New Year's Day. The first intimation 1 had, of any action in my case was the following announcement, in the Mad isonian: “Official”—appoint went by the President. “George Brent, Collector of the Gusto ns, at Al exandria, vice Joseph Baches,'’ published on Saturday evening, Uth inst., before any official communication had been received, either by my successor, or mvself. Such has been the man ner of my removal. Thrice has John Tyler pledged to rue, the sacred word of the President of the United States, which I regret being com pelled to say, has been broken. In short, I de pended upon his promises, and have been disap pointed and deceived. 1 make this publication, not with the vie v of exeiting th,e sympathy of friend or foe, but that my distant friends may know, how, an t why, l have been removed. While in offi :e, I have conscientiously prac tised what I before professed, and have never di rectly or indirectly interfered in politics myself, nor countenanced it in any offi rer attached to the Custom House. I came into office a Whig, con tinued to be a Whig, an 1 have been turned out a Whig. JOSEPH B ACHES.

Treasury D^part.vevt, ) October 18th, 18 Id- ) Sir: I have the honor testate, by direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, that there is no thing within the knowledge of this department, impeaching the official character of .Mr. Eaches, as Collector of the Customs at Alexauuria, and that the Secretary is satisfied with the man nei in which the duties of that office, have been performed by Mr. Eiches.

The Oregon Question.—The bill which was before Congress a good part of the winter, and the subject of extended discussion in the Senate, attracted a great deal of attention in England.— The English papers a^ usual, claim every thing for their Government. They discuss the subject, however, for the most pari, with great dignity ami ability,ami one of the Exist'd editors has the fol lowing remarks. “In strict justi-*1, neither the United States nor Great Britain have any right whatever to any . part of the territory in question. It belongs of right to the native tribes wWo occupy it; some of whom, especially the flaldahs, to the north, have evinced great aptitude for adopting the habits of settled and civilized men. The only plea which either (UBraitain or the U. S.eaii advance for assu ming the sovereignty of the territory, or sharing it between them, is this: As settlements of Europe ans *re forming along the eoast.it is desirable that the region should be comprehended within the lim its of some recognized state! all the other nations ot the civilized world havewai\ed their claim to it; Russia remaining north of 54 deg. 10 min.,and Mexico remaining south of 42 deg. England and the United States ought, therefore, eithcr#to di ! vide i,t or code it entirely the one to the other.” j Clearing aTueatre ay force of Arms.—The annexed extract from a late Paris letter, shows the way in which a refractory audience h dealt : with in Paris: »!.v IUUV » i lT &V., ilHirrULT U row at the Grand Opera (Academic lioyale) lu-t j night be considered worthy of mention. The au- 1 dience were affronted because sufficient notice had not been given of the change of an actor in the part ot Masaniello from illness, and because his remplacewit was not as good a substitute as ought to have been provided. The Commisary of Police addressed the discontented, and endea vored to reeencile matters, but without effect.— The upshot of the matter was, after quietly con* ductingsome of the refractory to the corps de garde, the gendarmerie were called in and made an effectual clearance. An emeute of this kind is a very uncommon occurrence in any respecta ble theatre here, and is unheard of in the Prem iere Salie of the capitol. Our countrymen abroad suffer deep mortifica tion, from the dishonored credit of their country. Almost every letter, from whatever quarter, speaks of it in terms of lamentation. Mr. WaUh's last I letter from Paris, to the National Intelligencer, concludes the report of a speech in the Chamber of Deputies, in which the fact was referred to in : terms of great bitterness, but which of course led to no action by the Chamber, with these re marks :—A*. V. %Qmerican. ‘‘Still there are impressions, nearly universal in that body and throughout France and Europe, which cause me to rejoice whenever the steamer or packet brings a Governor's message in which j | repudiation is repudiated. Anathemas, ever so strong, do not, however, reinstate us in pecunia or moral credit; honesty is practical. The bad repute which State and individual bankruptcy has generated, I might say radicated, for us in the Eastern hemisphere, is felt by every American a-1 broad in every interest, every transaction." Col. William R. Johssov.—The New* York Spirit of the Times of last week comes to us ac companied by an admirable engraved portraiiof Col. William R. Johnson, the Nestor ot the turf. It is by Dick, after a painting by Inman, and is certainly one of the best things of the kind ever issued in the United States. Such an engraving is truly a credit to those by whom it was got up, and the Times deserves commendation for hav ing managed the matter so handsomely.
