This evening commemorates Ano of the most remarkable Ere Nib to to found in the american history. The Battle of new Orleans commanded by not Bow Jack against the British forces will lie re Ine tiered and admired As Long As Milita. To skill bravery and patriotism. Have harmonious sounds. Tins triumphant Victory raised the commander High in the esteem and affection of Iho nation and brought him Forward to the tiie magistracy of the United on kill promotion Many of his warmhearted friends feared that his surprising talents were merely military and that he would be deficient in the Cabinet. But his first message of Tho Slot cons ass turned their ears into admiration. They now find him As profound in civil As he was in military office and it him at the head of the nation As they did before at the Bead of the army. A no. Subject has y Arisen since he by came president b a what to has been Able to digest and Lea a conviction in the Mitis of others that his source of action is not exhausted a chaplain of the Southern army gave the following character of general Jackson a Quot he sits Down and forms his Planthen rises and executes and despatch Ore visible in nil his undertakings How unlike Tho emperor he to Gabutti who neglected the duties of his time in catching flies and gathering cob webs for Public show. When 1 read his late Mossage a Mong other beauties the clause which recommended the pod Teu of the people the Best repository for Revenue shone with Peculiar Lustre. It reminded to of what i have somewhere read that a certain King who kept neither Gold pearls nor any Fine ornaments in his Treasury Ivas visited by a crowned headed brother who wallowed in splendor at Home. On Tho desire of his visitor to see Tho Royal Orcas ures of the frugal King to was conducted into the Treasury apartment where Little was to be seen but naked Walls. Salni it k i Tiff Stoi ashment to exclaimed Quot How can you support your dignity give Rov Oil bpm tics and maintain your army to which tire other King replied Quot Tarry with to three Days and you shall in the mean time the frugal King sent a request to is subjects to bring in air bounties a which was done with All Epes. And consisted of Gold pearls embroider and All kinds of riches at sight of which the visiting King was astonished. Quot Here said the Fahigal King is my treasure deposited in Tho hands of those who earned a it and always at my command when Tho Good of the people requires this seems to be the policy of Andrew Jackson and is it possible there can to an a Merican heart that does net respond to Tho Scal Kmentt it was but a partial Reform when England pit tested against the encroachment of the roman pontiffs Many therefore Wero conformists to the episcopal establishment some of whom crushed the Atlantic and settled in new England. Those pilgrims with All their Good views Bro t. Some the of tie whom of Babylon with them and soon religion parishes were incorporated. Every Par ish was forced to have a preacher All within the Parish were forced Topay the orca Ehert sunday was established As holy time be town or Paris have a Learned orthodox preacher settled or after five years Loso their charter ii. It would take a history my to than Nineteen limes As Long As the 119th is Ifni to narrate All this superstition cruelty and Folly. Was the a Commonwealth at this time fully i purged from her old sins to might expect to see a a Puro representative democracy which will never be the Case while religion is considered an adjective that cannot stand of itself. When will this great to mph be that neither Tho legislative ,nor her judicial arms of gov cram set <0 their official capacities have big boo with the souls of men con six that Tho whole do sign of civil Govert ment is to protect Tho lives liberties and prop Hoof All the citizens where this is by Lievin Hill acted upon Boubli Canish will Flou Riiff but a where it is not believed it cannot Bathe a a Odif any Call themselves Reub Saar Iana yet make Yusoof Shalaw As the a Peiu of Tho gospel Finstead of Tho a Nief Quot a gos a i a Thoy Aro like Forry Raen looking one a Way and Viag Tho other. Jackson is certain the president of a he people for more4lkii two thirds of the people gave Hira their votes and he has been and still is doing he Verv works that he was chosen for. When a was minister to France he wrote to a Fri Oil itt the voted states that it was new Etwary that there should be in every gov a Mamrot periodically a revolution Ai Tiv it War o Paige the government of oppressive is and usages and cast Oft the does that sucked All and gathered none. A Fly Hob. Ulit Hozid be iwo How testified the Force of free sufi at now it see that Little bits of paper will effect that which has heretofore been gained by sword Cannon and streams of blood Jackson is now the agent in Tho hands the people to execute the purgation. H vigilance to Seanro the rights of the people a state govern Flent and the defined supremo Powers of the general government is Manifest in Al his communications and i removals however he is Abueid by some who like dogs bark most when the Moon is rising which they cannot help. So it we sin Bible times the shepherds and Youn Lions howled when their glory and spoil were taken away. The bitty plaints of dismissed officers Are proofs of the correctness of this principle of Al they prove that the complainants were in Possession of a pr�7.e which they them selves wished exclusively to Conj it in. Who those who Are out of office and were nov or in complain of removals it is generall because they themselves Are overlooked or entertain n repossession of opposition a inst the administration. The communications of the president a Vince such depth of thought Justice and humanity that pedantry a ill allies pulls cannot gainsay it but say his enemies Jackson is not the author of those messages Van Buren is Premier he docs All be it so Jackson had wit enough to appoint him Secretary and How Tho creature can ii vib More Wisdom than the creator is not As Plain As Lucid. The Fame Van Buren Lias been called the lit be Gem the Manire and Tho cat that often fell but always fell Ripon tire feet and yet he has been honoured by the most populous state in Tho Union Wilh the Hish est of bees in her gift. I cannot see How these High encomium will strengthen the party opposed to the present administer lion. Supposing that Jackson should i or decline serving another term or i through another term in a few years nother president Miil to selected and if the same precedent should be a Teri unon All Tho encomium now Given to Tho ser. Retard would Aid in his promotion to tin presidency. Or. Hamilton has informed us that when Washington had formed his documents he would Siy Quot Pray or. Hamilton Correct this document and a by it in proper order Quot and what harm was there in this when col. Tar Lynn was degrading col. William Washington in company of ladies to said that he did not believe Washington could Wrilon Bis name. It May be to said one of Tho Lara Vej Brit i Date say he can set his Mark. Thi Starl on knew for Washington had Cut off one if Tarlton s fingers. Who oct not remember How boldly it was affirmed for Long time that Jefferson never Drew the declaration of Independence. How common it is for men to make lies their ref Ige and hide themselves under falsehood. I have to scruples but what All the messages and communications that have the signature of the president affixed to them were substantially written by himself and if better state papers Are to be found Low not whore to look for them. I was in the vigor of life when the National Constitution was formed and a my vote for a Friend toils ratification and have never repented it. I have watched Tho course of the government for More than 40 years and believe it to be the Best in the world. There have been however a a Clouds in our political horizon which filled the Wenj of Liberty Wilh dark boding fears. The Clouds which had been gathering for several years settled Togel Hei and seemed to cover the he avens about 1797-s. But soon Tho Light broke out Inder the administration of the apostle of lib Reg. But in his administration the encroachments of foreign Powers became Linsui Feraulo. Appeal to Justice embargo nor non Intercourse could pre a ent a rupture. Under Tho adm Nistra Ion of his successor Var tvs declared.�?. In addition to the common evils of War some of Tho states refused Aid and cast All the embarrassments in Tho Way that they could to make Tho War in popular and either dissolve the government or change the administration. The War at length closed triumphantly for the United slates and peace spread her Balmy wings Over the land. Those who have been in opposition before without any conviction or confession of error or any Chairge of opinion now changed their measure and tried the other lug of the boat. Now flattery being the order of Tho Day. Tho cry was Quot federalism is defunct we Are a Lionel the Era Osgood Feelis a is come come let us build by these Good words and fair to deceived the hearts of the of those republicans who were Deli in a cloth followed them at once these dyed who yarn soon joined their ranks dts Yed in Iho Wool were rather uatractasi@4t those who were leaned Black la sibs like Paul free born were As stubborn As Jim Oaks of Baba i and firm is the Mould a a Teut Jerusalem.

Quot remember that christianity is of divine origin the Only religion that Ever brought pan Lon to a guilty world but it has suffered More injury by its pretended friends who have undertaken to regulate it by Law than it has from All its i shall finally conclude with expressions in which Lam confident every heart Here present will respond Mav Tho life and health of to thew Jackso be Long preserved and when he shall go the Way of All the Earth May Tho principles that guide his administration flourish in immortal Bloom. From the Boston statesman. To the people of the u. States. A paraphrase. Recent events manifesting a wide i Ision among the party which has hitherto supported Henry Clay Are too important not to awaken general attention. They re entitled to serious reflection by the friends of Tho administration and by Tho people. From the inocent of the original combination Quot against the president which was organised at the Clay dinner at Washington immediately Afulei his election it was foreseen that the materials composing it United for a time by a common feeling of revenge for disappointed ambition and of contempt for popular sovereignty would necessary Fly asunder whenever it should come to be decided who should expect the posts of Power. Nothing but the Subtile chemistry of these objects it was perceived could hold in Union such repulsive materials As Shenul lifters of the South the Tariff men of Iho East and Tho anti masons of the West. Such a Jumble of politicians could have no natural cohesion. If or. Cooper and or. Webster could Long act in Harmony if or. Clay the grand master ind or. Granger the anti Mason could sing ravishing dells to the tune Quot Here we round go round Quot of the highest Quot Alto Quot of free Trade and free masonry and the lowest ii Woof Lariff and organism could be made to chime in a feline Consort then indeed the time might be e.xpoci3d to have arrived when water would run up Hill ind fire and powder mix harmlessly to get Hor. As to Tho Hon. Or Webster his political sentiments Are Well known to take their Hue rom his political expectations. The thermometer of his anti Tariff Zeal Rose and fell with the variations of popular opinion in Boston. By a gentle and kindly attraction he mingles with the free Trade party wherever it has the Ascendancy and is again disengaged by that pow Irful solvent a diminution of its numbers. A Azul the Tariff and or the Israfl n Friend of Madaras and an enemy of Adams for Calhoun in 1823, Adams in 1824, Clay in 1825, Adams in 1828, Clay in 1828, Calhoun in 1830, and for himself in 1831 at one time haunting his federalism at another considering the charge of federalism libellous one year against the South and soliciting the West the next repelling the West paying his Quot de i Quot to the South denouncing at one session the advocates of state a hts and at Tho next soothed into a submissive silence when the question in thrust upon him with Tamaseu dangling from its Apex and on All these momentous subjects vib rating like Baline Jarvis Between Hea Tep and Earth the foresight which anticipated the a Parr of which this gentle was one of b Inola Busqus Miteria want not deceived. Foment Baa a hired Hebeeb of Nuu before Iho eec�d4eu of the illustrious Jackson s administer Flotkin had closed a Gulph like that Between the Rich Man and Lazarus Separ a the mass of these political Quot free companions Quot a these followers of or str pestilent Aai Tho influence of their idol founded upon their hatred to Republican institutions their eagerness for revenge and their rapacity for plunder is no longer Power fill enough to repress their contentions. They not Only quarrel in his face but having pulled him from his imaginary cd vexation Quot Lito vultures they prey Ripon his Corse. We hear no More enthusiastic encomium of the patriotism talents and fascinations a of Henry Clay. Achilles is slam Ajax and Ulysses Are contending for his a Quot i have heard much of or. Clay s Independence of his determined spirit of his boundless popularity. We now see Iho verification and manifestation of these qualities. We behold him evidently sinking in the first stages of a political decline. His voice no longer cries in the Wilder Ness nor is he now found engaged in persecuting the people s administration from City unto City. Whiskey steams and sur loins smoke in vain. Chagrin preys upon him in his retirement. He is so Independent that to dares not even curse who Are digging his grave so determined that he yields himself a willing victim to their Machini Lions so popular that of his utter downfall Quot there is not a Loop to hang a doubt upon Quot our purpose in these paragraphs is to suggest that those who have supported Jackson s administration and who still support it have no concern in these Dis Putes of the enemy except so far As they May affect the Public interests. So far dissension be Likely to weaken the Union of a faction which has hitherto proceeded in a Coure dangerous to the great interests of the country the effect will be Good. Still better will it be if these disputes grow out of motives merely personal and amen Nous shall open the eyes of their deluded followers to the in character of their leaders. In All their Public acts in All their mining and counter mining there is not the smallest reference to the Prosperity of the country or the happiness of the people. All Public principle is abandoned and the Public Good forgotten in their eager struggle for Power. In the storm of our Republican institutions one desperate Leader Huris Mother from the Walls and tramples upon him with merciless hostility. Quot War famine and pestilence Quot is their Battle cry and the stimulus to combat is the Hope of plunder. They look to Success to Reward with a general proscription of the republicans the sacrifice of the indians the bribes of the United states Bank War on Onmi Hercey War on state rights the annihilation of the Consoli rat Ify the with a grand consolidated Empire wherein the Eio shall make a prey of the Manj where titles Frank shall distinguish the gentlemen from the Tim Plemen and wealth shall reduce the people it miserable Vassalage and make them very deed Quot Hewers of Wood and draws of and what a spectacle does this con lest exhibit who does not see in what Spect of disgrace it holds up the Mon archival party of the country what Republican does not feel his indignation roused that these faction Els should have stolen the name of his to precut such Quot famous designs Quot National National because they aim to de stroy the Constitution and republicans because they scorn and deride the Intelli Geno and patriotism Oft lie people there remains for the friends of the Constitution administered by Jackson in its True spirit to arrest Iho Progress of this wicked faction and preserve the country from the ruin of its measures. Our Courso lies right Onward. We will turn neither to the right hand nor the left. The Republican party having to rfcs saved the country and the Constitution Are again destined to save it. They Are the friends of Union a they Are free americans and they Ore a great majority of the Union. Proofs of disaffection and schism in their adversaries assure them of a most signal Success. They have a Point of concentration the a Man Quot who has filed the measure of his country s he has again consented to sacrifice his wishes to the wishes of Iho party and in this sign to conquer. He was never yet guilty of duplicity never soiled his Honor with a political bargain never compromised his principles. Always just honest magnanimous to has always been attended by Public favour. Always Brave prudent and penetrating Victory has Ever followed his footsteps. Let us rally for Tho Union for the Constitution for the people a cause and with the blessings of heaven Liberty and the Republic shall again be letters from Paris rec wed Hythe Lait French packet state Tho important fact that a very extensive defection bad Token Lacoin tie Catholic Church of Franco t is said that a gallic Church is to he established , and renouncing the authority of the Popes a that the Oiga Ninona will take place immediately and include setae.

Our re Deib Wai to Gratis Fixl to Leam that Tho supreme court the venerable chief Justice delivering the opinion Ivo refused the injunction asked cherokees against the state of Georgia. Thi will no doubt be likewise gratified to hear that the editors of the now satisfied upon that question. To May Hope that opposition to the removal of the indians will cease and tha tall those who desire the Wel amp re of the aborigines of tie country will unite in promoting their collocation and permanent location West of the Mississippi River the decision was not delivered until after oui paper went to press yesterday. We copy the Quot following from the National intelligencer ,, Teyf of Georgia and the Chero Kees. Tie supreme court of the Quot United states terminated ils annual session ,. Among the decisions pronounced Previ gusto Thea Upen the application on the part of the Cherokee nation for an injunction to stay certain proceedings of the state of Georgia. The decision of the court was an unequivocal denial of the a the opinion of Tho court was read by a chief Justice Marshall and is therefore to be presumed to be from his Luminous mind and pen. We have not been Abie to obtain it for publication anxiously As we desired. A to do so. We heard it Rea however and a a shall venture so far to report the grounds of Quot fit As to stale that the court disclaims jurisdiction of the Case on the ground that the Cherokee nation is Nota Vigw nation in the sense of the Constitution.-. These Indian nations it is the opinion of a of Tho court Are not sovereigns Independent of the sovereignty of Tho oni Ted slates but Domestic dependant a it Lions in state of Quot Pupillage Quot to the urn cd states or in a relation corresponding to that which wards have to their guardians. The supreme court therefore cannot take cognizance of Cash to which it is sought to make them parties As nations., a with respect to the rights of the. Chen Kees however As individuals to theland guaranteed to them it a spit by distinctly intimated in the opinion of the court that there is a Mode by which they May be brought before Tho supreme court of Quot adjudication. The opinion went on to say that if the objection to entertaining jurisdiction in this Case were not fatal to the application. There were other grounds on which an a. Plication for the enter Trence of this court in Tho Case would encounter grave objections. Tercis , it must be on the ground that the cherokees Are a foreign nation and the relations Between foreign Powers Jund the a states Are placed in the charge of differ. Ent Branch of the gov Emmett. In this court to undertake to arbitrate such questions would be to assume a political Power Quot not intended to be vested in it. If it were True As signed that the Cherokee nation is oppressed by the state of Georgia amp a amp a. It Nott Othis court the Opin Ion concluded but id of Hor ,.to insert their rights and redress their wrongs. Or. Justice Baldwin delivered a very Quot Long separate opinion agreeing entirely in the conclusion to which the majority of the court had arrived but not conc him Ngun the views taken in the opinion which had been read. Or. Justice John Ion also delivered a separate opinion on the question. A our him opinion on the object is of Little consequence but Tho reasoning of the court upon Iho constitutional provisions bearing ujan Tho Case appeared to us to Quot be conclusive. The journal and other Quot o up Nesiti in mints still insist that the letter ofor. Donelson to general Krepps was written with the knowledge and at the request of the i Dent and Nige that the Frank was violation of Law. Those who know the firmness and character of or. Donelson will not want our warranty for his to has said that Tho letter was written without Tho knowledge of tha president and he is incapable of duplicity or falsehood. He has olso explained the manner in which it was franked. He intended to Send it Wilhoit a Frank he was called Iran his room on official duties and during his Abs me the president s servant took that with other letters which had written for the president s Frank.
