1 Symptoms of the dissolotion not to say

hitherto - pervaded their yanks has lately

public plunder," isjno linger sufficient to
preserve concord of feeling and unity in ac
tion and disaflection and distrust ore every
where evident.1,
. ; A late number of the ifew Era, , the or
gan of the Loco Focoa ini New York city,
holds forlh as follows:. - j
. The least enthusiasm ol feeling express
ed by the rank and fie democracy, in favor
of any applicant for an office ut Washington,
is fatal to his hopes. And thev universal
wishes of the whole party,. collected, ex
pressed, and . presented in every f rm that
can ne uevi?eo,is consiaerca little less man
high trea on to the superannuated dandies
who compose the cabinet. They consider it
an imperative duty to insult the democracy
whenever they have the hardihood to inter
fere with the royal prerogative of appoint
ments, to office. , It is therefore very clear,
that the President considers himself' tuk
MASTER.' AND JfOT THE SERVANT OF.. Til E
people, in the dispensation of his ' official
favors. TJiis singular anomaly, appears
inexplicable to the great mass of the party

FROM WASHINGTON CITY.
Correspondence of the New Orleant Bulletin.
Washington, February 29, 1810,
The House was in session last night until
eight oclock," and the New 'Jersey Resolu
tion was temporarily disposed oi ueloretlie

were discomfited , and committea an aci
which I nm sure will not soon be forgotten.

Whigs called the yeas and nays, 'the. result

The Speaker voted, in the affirmative, and the
amendment teas carried! 1 he vote created
dismay in the ranks of the party,? and pro
duced a result aaunwejeome as it was unex
nected. Tlie sians of disappointment-wore!
too mftnifest lp be concealed, and when the
vote was declared, those who nau peen smi
ling in the expectation and prediction" of a
different result, were quite chop-fallen.
The Resolution as. amended was adepted-
the amendment, however,: leaves the -qucs
lion in precisely ine position n was p;ior
the resolution of Mr. Johnson was brought
before the House. , Tho committee of elec?
tions had decided to make a report to the
House, as soon as the lavful votes . could be
known. , . ' " . "-' .i. . , ; ..- .
The ndministratibn,; members were not
willing ta await ' the reception of this lesa!
testimony; knowing that jjie pure Yao Bu

a great nu mbe r of illegal votes, they, voted
to strike from a resolution the word lawful!

This" is the title of a most able and spirit
ed political paper just established at lndian
apolis the first number haying been issued
ori the 22d ult. , It is edited by Joseph M.
Moore, Eq. a young gentleman of great
moral worth, and. a .very able political wri
ter. Read an extract from the' address. of
this champion of truth on commencing his
editorial labors: - . , "
. - With an enthusiism unparalleled in " the
history of , political contests in the United
State?, the people have responded to the no
mination of William Henry Harrison of Ohio
fr the Presidency . Were, this feeling con
fined to the section of the country which
was the, be;tre .of his early glory, or to
those States in the West, of which he might
ius'tly claim the paternity, we should re-
gard it as too teebie ia basis upon wmcn to
build the hope of "success; but when the
shouts which, have resounded C within the
walls of the old "Cradle of Liberty,'? j have
been rc-echotd from' the Exchange of New
Orleans'; when' wa know that the. cabins of
the West,' the 'manufactoriesof New Eng
land, the commercial districts of the Atlan
tic, and the plantations of the South, are
alike pervaded by the feeling, the indica-
tions are too clear, and satisfactory ; to admit
of a. d Vubt as to.; the result And what do
we behold in these spontaneous ' movements
ol the people t Merely the ebullition of
gratitude ; for the soldier who has fought
their battles and defended their liberties?
No! there are still higher and holier motives
which f actuate, i the freemen of .the Union.
They behold in the .man not only the sol
dier but: llie -statesman one whose mind
has imbibed less;ns of political experience
from the lips of a conspicuous actor in the
scenes of .the . revolution, and who thus
brings down to the present day the feelings
which animated the bosoms of those whose
p ltriotism no one dares to doubt. One wh,
iii the humbler and more distinguished offi
ces of the country, haf exhibited those qual
ities of the head and heart w'hich command
ed -the confidence alike of the people and
those who entrusted him with" powers ?? One
who, whether amid thesplendor of the
court of a foreign country, or in the private
walks of life, has ever exhibited that repub
lican simplicity, which .endears, him to the
hearts of eH? democracy . A hand un
stained with the gold of office a mind re
sisting the , corrupiiug . influences, beneath
which so many have. fallen a heart ever
evincing its earnest desires "for the welfare
of the people- wisdom in the council no less
than bravery in the field sterling integrity
in' public as well as in private life all com
mend him 1 3 the best affections of those who
truly. value the liberties of ; the people, the
safety of the UepubliOrfj'--t -.-r:'-:r-'
. In the elevation of t such an individual to
the first office in the gift of the people,', we
discharge not only a debt of gratitude to the
man, but a duty to . our country." To the
memory ot those whose blood was noured
but in the stormy conflicts of the Revolution i
we owe me euon 10 resurQ iue governmeni
torwhat it was- designed to he. " To tliosq
who are yet to reach the stage of action, we
are under obligations to transmit, not ihe
fragments of a rich Inheritance," but th j'un
mutilated, untarnished legacy of our fathers.'
And when we are gravely told, by the; Chief
Magistrate that, the 'people expect too mitch
when, from a state of prosperity, with the
means of preserving it, the governmentand
individuals are alike brought to bankruptcy
when the. constitution iolposes, no longer a
resfraict upon the licentiousness of ambitious
men wnen powers - oi o:ner oepariraems
are assumed by the President, and eyeii tho
policy of sovereign States becomes the sub-
jectof Executivs dictationwhen those who
are vested iwitaontrol are so bliuded Ly
avarice, as to be regardless of the interesis
of the commuh'ty, and teply to appeals for
relief only by reckless experiments when
a large porti6n of our citizens, possessed of
ine cozwmttf zona qua i uicanons ior omce,
are prcecriled. because i hey rwill, not bow in
subserviency to the will of "one" ia need
