Ed. Amkii. PARIS, 19th Arcirr, 1841. I do not belong to that school of politicians lich sees in every departure from their own inions, the immediate downfall of our institutions, d a f.itul issue to the fairest experiment of self vcrnment, which Providence has permuted man make. I believe the foundations of our liberty too broadly and deeply laid, to be shaken by Il causes. I have great confidence in public ninii, and while this is enlightened by free nlitl mi discussion, and un unshackled press, and ccr ed by a religious and intelligent community, I re little apprehension, but that our questions of ernal policy will bo adjusted by the good acnat? the nation, without leaving behind (hem any manent injury to our social or political ins'itu is. I am free to confess, that my fears for the ire point to a far di He rent source of danger. I - that ne do not sufficiently estimate tho value ! he blessings wp enjoy, but that we arc loo prone niagn fy into serious evils subjects of eo in para 'ly minor importance, arid too little disposed to .now ledge the kindness of Providence by a due rcciution ot the precious UuH confided to us. . us humbly bo e that this kind of judicial hlind s may not be visited by one of those signal chas mcnts, by which, in the progicr-a of human its, the moral government of God is vindicated, the ingratitude of nations is punished, have been the more inipiessed with the force of e views, since I have seen the state of society in ope, and have discovered the liatuic of the iuU by which il is agitated. These ate not j nes ts of colistiuclion telating to the existence or lie cut of a power to nmke a road or to order a sur , but questions i f life and death, fciliupgles of igulust principles; f modern reform against cnluhusis. They are even now shaking so y to its centre, snd they tire destined to mark r progress in blood, and probably to terminate contests in revolutions. Their origin may be ;d to immense military establishments : to a terous und searching police, entering into all relations of life; to opprsie taxation; to a em of hgisLtive and administrative r.gulalions, .ruling individual enterprise, anil letiving us little lay be lo individual will ; to the hereditary er and influence of particular classes ; to the ualily of political rights and social condition ; above all, and beyond all to the phy ical misery moral degiadution fa large portion of the muliity. Happy are we, that these evils are town in our country, and well would it be lor fa portion of the energy we display in our po ll dispute were employed in thanks to God for control. have long been inclined, lny fellow-ciliiens, titeitain those sentiments, but lerently they sealed into firm convictions. In thU frame of I, you will nol be surprised to learn, that I am riend lo political violence or intolerance. The t of my oIm rvatiuu upon the creed and cou of the two great parties which divide us, is, VV heir dnfejence is to be traced more lo a differ, of opinion, respecting the greater or Itm ca pacity of man for self-government, than to any other cause. This is the great point of departure, and since the adoption of the Constitution il will be found, that the peculiar views of each party upon this subject, have led to the peculiar opinions they have rcHtiectively formed of the powers and duties of the government. The democratic party having more confidence than their opponents in tho virtue and intelligence of the great mass of our society; have in doubtful questions of construction, believed that power was safer with the people limn wiih their agents, and have therefore inclined rather to limit than extend delegated authority. Their oppo nents, on the contrary, placing less reliance upon these safe-guards, have thought th.it a stronger, or to speak perhaps more correctly, more government was necessary, to defend socbty from tho evils in herent in it, and have ihereforo adopted a prcnter latitude of construction. But both, 1 speak of in im est, not of individuals, both have been opially sin cere, nnd have equilly sought the happiness of the country. I do not believe that cither seeks any changes in cur fundamental institutions, and least of all, a change which would fcubslituto for them monarchical establishment. I beg you would not believe that I indulge the Utopian expectation, that parties can cease to exist in our free government. He has observed life to little purpose, who entertains such a hope. It is a result probably not to bo desired, certainly not to be anticipated. But tho asperity of political dis putes may be softened by a just rpiiit of concilia tion, and c may thereby become stronger and more respected abroad without any sacrifice of true principles ot home. Whoever recollects the e vents which preceded and accompanied our last war with Great Britain, or whoever seeks them in the history of the times, must be satisfied that with fewer internal divisions, the sufferings of the Coun try would have been far less, and its efforts to obtain justice, fur more efficient. I truRt therefore that the great Democratic party, while it adheres with un shaken firmness to its principles, will pursue its course with a wise moderation. W hatever others may do, I hope we shall never mistake violence for firmness, and for political principle the denuncia tion of our opponents. We can have no safer guide upon these subjects than the example of Mr. Jefferson, who with an admirable mixture of firm ness and moderation, ohho' coming into the ad ministration in the most excited slate of feeling, that our country has pel haps ever experienced, left it with the Republican party greatly augmented, and the principles it had contended for, firmly es tablished. His doctrine of appointments and re movals, that source of so much division, selecting his fiiends for the foimcr but exercising his power of the latter, upon lheju-l and moderate principles he laid down, while it proved his fidelity to his par ty, proved also his justice und wi.-Joui as a Chief Macis'rate. These views will probably not bo acceptable lo many zcaluiis paitians, and it is for this reason as I entertain them, that I am bound lo disclose them ; such a procciding will at all events furnish proof of my sincerity. The selection of a candidate for the Chief Magistrate ley the Republican party is a question not less interesting than difficult. Many considerations must be taken into view, and I have looked at the subject as I think with great imparti ality. My conviction is, that there is nothing in my present position, nothing in my past career, which should leud to my selection, for such a mark of confidence. My repugnance to the measure is great, almost invincible. And there is but one state of things, a state of things as little' to he ex acted as desired, which could induce mo to yieid to the stcrifice, I should le culled upon to m ike, und that is, the generally acknowledged opinion of the Republican party, that the use of my name might be necessary upon t his occasion and my nomination, agreeably to the established usae of the party ; by a general Convention. 1 it such an ewiil tho' I should yield with reluctance, still I should yield and al lo ugh my further residence ubioad wi.l probably under any ciicumstanees l e but short, yet were il otherwise, upon tho occuirence of such an event, I should consider il my duty to return without delay. Not to lake the slightest p rl in the election, far be such a couise from me, I ut because propriety would foibid me to hold an office under these circ uni-tinces, and beciuse every American, whom th confidence or any c inside r.tbli" portion i'f his fcllow-citizcna might designate f r that high station, ought to meet the trial be must uudeigo in his own Country.

Awful Murder of n Young YVomnii. Yesterday forenoon a most fiendlike murder was committed in tho Cambridge Alms House, (Cam bridgeporl,) on the person of a young woman named Sarah Stevenson, by a man named William II. llritton. He plunged a huge carving knife in between her rhrht foreshoulder and breast, clear , through her heart lungs, and out under her left j shoulder-blade. llritton, as a pauper, became an inmate of the ' Alms House in September, 1810, being aged and ! somewhat infiim. lie possessed some literary ac quirements, and was employed a a teacher to the childien in the establishment. In June last, Miss Stephenson, then laboring undei a painful disease . . ....... . . . . . ! became an intimute of the house, and after she had improved in health in some degtre, she undeitoolt to learn to write under the instructions ofDnttoii In couseipience ol the fiimhar iircreourse natural ly arising thus, Brbloii conceived a violent passion for her, and proposed to marry her. She declined on account of his age and inability to suppoit a family. He pressed his suit, and she laid the subject bef ire Mr. Valentine, the excellent superintendent, who at once advised her to avoid Britton as much as she could, nnd told her, when, ever he enteied her room, to leave it, and come in. to his piivale apartment.

Tho Peach Important tvpoii- lllt'llf. Mkssrs. Gavlohd tSc Ti'ckkh. In the spring of 18117, 1 wrote to Judge Unci, asking liim to join tnc in experiments On the Pcildl tree with saltpetre, and proposed to give the result through the meiliuin of the Cultivator to the public. 1 R:lv'0 n my reason for that retjucsl, as f;,r iis '".V observation extended, I had nhvavs observed that on soils containing nitre and muriate of soda, the peach tree lives luxuriantly to an advanced age, while Upon soils fli:itnlv mlininiinr. licUom attn imme diately adjoining, seldom attains the age ol seven years. As instances in vindication of this oc cur so frequently, I have been astonish ed to see them passed over without no tice, and now advert to some of them to establish the truth of this position. Peach trees growing in tho site where once stood a dwelling, generally live to an old age, the soil of which, by analy- sis, will give a proportion of nitre. The ; same tiling occurs in many uisincis oi i the west and south west; upon one " ! farm the occupant has no dilliculty in ! having good peaches, while lus neigh I r ' .. i. . i I .... bor finds it a dillicult task to prolonu .... , r. ., ..,,..,. i the hie of tho tiees to a lew ycai s, ami i, i.- , i r. .1, .,,., on well cultivated larms nrai Hie se.i- , l;m, ,w.un i,irrme( t.v have ujt y j Rowing llhS YCV.

The trees in '.'It! were full of worms; some ; of the trees were dead, others apparent ly dying, and but very lew put on 1 he appearance of health ; such was Ms dis tempered condition that some of my f..:,,.,, ndvised me to cut down about one.u,f (,f t,ose that yet showed life, s .. ..:.. ,.. slir, ,vi,s'il0 nrnctitfCof peacircrowcrs. I thought it would be ajplieU UlO same ingretlifliis in (lliier- Cllt proiortions, w itnoiii ouerving mmMi diliercnce mtheellect; though 1 have since thought that where 1 applied the saltpetre alone, and where the largest portion of the mixture was nitre, the e fleet was best; but in consequence of i price of saltpetre, I have endeavor killed by a late irost. Jt occurred to me wi;u i as imieuteu to me .ui, ivi ., j for the abundance of fruit on the trees i done in March, by its retarding vege j tation, and from tin experiment made in j '7, it appeared to bo the ease, though i 1 have never considered it of sufficient importance to repeat it for the purpose of testing it further In regard to the best time to make this application, 1 would say about the first of April, and to tho.e trees having woms in them again in Juno or Septem ber, as tho appearance of the worm may indicate its necessity, using anout two ' thirds of the usual (tuantity lor the June ! o September dressing, an. 1 i. boused i only in contact with the trunk of the I tree. I have not discovered any great benefit from sowing it broadcast over the orchard every year. If the tree is injured very much by the worm, to I wash the bark of the trunk with n solu I lin f mixture and water, might be j of service, Icing careful n"t to apply too much ; this should not prceut it application in a powdered stale. To my trees planted in the fall and spring, I apply as soon as done planting in the spring, about an ounce upon the surface, in contact with the trunk of the tree, and repeat this quantity again early in June or .September, the pench worm at these two last periods, being in their in fancy, are destroyed. In August, after one application of this mixture to my young trees in the spring, I have taken several worms from oil" the outer bark of the tree, bedded in gum, they have punctured it in a num ber of places, but did not penetrate to do any injury to the inner bark, while the next tree left without the above mixture was nearly destroyed, the in ner bark being eaten for more than two thirds around the tree. It might be supposed that tho salt and saltpetre w ould produce instantaneous death, but this is not the case ; 1 have kept them half covered in a solution of salt and water, and saltpetre and water, and in these two articles combined for several hours without causing death ; they will avoid its approach, and w ill not remain in it unless compelled by necessity. 1 have endeavored lo cive in a brief manner my practice on the peach tree lor five years, from which 1 have no reason to make a change, but many inducements for a continuance of the practice. If you consider it stitlirient ly important for publication, it is at your disposal, and if any benefit should arise therefrom, be fissured it would be the highest rew ard for any service of mine that could be tendered to, dear sirs, your obedient servant.
