"I am 0 "I must I must make n yself are frequently used, but the expression which heads this article leaves a I out of sight. Having said this much of the reputation of the phrase, be it our next c ire to give its origin. Some thirty-five years since a gentleman mmed Haines, was travelling on horseback 1 i the vicinity of Mr. Jeffotsons residence i i Virginia. Patty spirit was running high in those d.-iys. Mr. Jefler- in was President, and Haines was a rink 1'edernlist, and, as a matter of coniso, op- [ostd the then existing administiation and i s head He was not acquainted uith Mr .elTeison.and accidentally coming up with t ini gentleman, also tiavoIKng on 1 nek, his party zeal s'lon Kd in.o uconver- Uion vipon the all-absoibmg topic. In the i ouise of the conveisaiion H.iines took par- ncular pains to abuse Mr. JelTt rcon. calling 'n'rn all soitsof haal names, run down eve y rne.isure of his administiation, poked the non-intercourse and embargo acls at him s raost outrageous and ruinou', ridiculed iis gunboat system as prrpostuous and uRst-nsical, opposed his purchase of Lou- iiana ns a wilu thoit, lookup leading featuie of the day, and des- :antC'd upon them and their originator with he Li'.ternfM. Mr. Jefferson, all he whil siid but little. Tlieie was no ihins f par ft'iend, and he did no[ feel U liberty to combat his aigumeats They ii.ip.llj' in ived in fiont of A3.-. Jef- residence, Ilaines, ofconise, nut ac- [luiii'.ed the fact Notwithstanding ne had been vilified nd abused "like a to nn old sTving, Mr. Jef- ferson still, with tiuc Virginia hospitality wd politfnrfs, invitud his travelling corn- p.mton to alight and paitake of some re- fieshmcnt H lines ubuut getting fiom his horse, when H came into his head that he should ask his companion's name said the President, bluntly. 1! What, Thomas Jefferson "Yes, sir, Thomas Jefferson." "Picsident Tliomus contin- ued the as'ionished ftderilist. "Tho rejoined Air. Jefferson. Well, my name is Ilaines" and put- ting spurs lo his horse he was out of hear- ing instantly. This, we have been inform- ed, uus the oiigin of the phiase. The One Term Tocque- ville, in his admirable work on this coun- try, holds the following language. By introducing the principle of re-election, they (the American legislators) partly destroyed their and they rendered the President but little inclined to exert the great power they had vested in his hands. If ineligible a second time, the President would be far from inde- pendent of the people, for his responsibility would not be lessened; but the favor of the people would not be so necessary to him as to court it by humoring its desires. If re-eli- gible (and "this is more especially true at the present day, when political morality is re- laxed, und when great men are rare) the President of the United States an easy tool in the hands of the majority. He adopts its likings and its animosities; he hastens to anticipate its-wislies; he fore- stalls its complaints; he yields to its idle cravings, and instead of guiding it, as the, that he1 should do, he is ever ready to follow its biddings. Thus, in order not to deprive the State of the tal- ents of an individual, those talents have been rendered almost useless; and to re- servean expedient for extraordinary perils, the country has been exposed to daily dan- gers.

The repot t of ihis survey, recently made in pursuance of a resolution of Congress, and conducted by Dr. Owen, of New Har- mony, assisted by Dr. Locke of this city, has, we cnderstand, been forwarded to the land office. As this region is still, the great part of unsold, and is the land of to which emigrants from all parts our country ai-e wending their way, alt to is a matter of National intnrtst; and we hope nothing will delay or "indtftnately postpone'' the publication.
