A voice from the Hermit age. There is certainly no individual within the Broad Miu of the United slates whose opinions on political topics Are of such immense value As those of the venerable Patriot and statesman general Andrew Jackson. Standing she does on the Brink of the dividing line Between time and eternity with 1.0 sordid motives to Subserve and no mean ambition to grat Ify his views of Public matters pos sess Peculiar importance and comm acid profound reverence in every Quarter of the Union. Aware of this truth the federalists at yer having reviled the old hero to the full extent of their Malignity affect to been suddenly seized with a singular fit of affection for him have had the audacity to stigmatize his great name declaring that he had avowed a preference for Gen. In a speech delivered by Harrison at Columbus Ohio the Federal available himself endorsed this slander upon the venerable Jackson by calling him my these things have induced Gen. Jack son to address the following letter to the editor of the Nashville Union in which with characteristic boldness he defines his position and freely expresses his opinion of the two Candi dates now before the american people. It is a Noble letter eminently worthy Tho Man and puts the lying Federal Crew to the necessity of seeking in some other Quarter for capital to Bol Ster up the falling fortunes of their Sham hero. Read it one and Hermitage june 23, 1840. To he editor of Ike Nashville Union the Many letters which have been recently addressed to me asking for an expression of my views relative to the leading measures of the present administration of the general government some of which Are from Well known and respectable sources representing that efforts Are made in various quarters of the Union to incite a belief in the Public mind that my Confidence in the present chief Magis trate has been impaired it seems to be proper thai some Steps should be taken by me to a deceive those who Are thus imposed upon. For this purpose sir i beg the favor of to give a place in your columns to this note which i Trust will he acceptable to those who have written to me on the subject As a direct answer in the form of a letter would be. Many of my political friends in the estimate they have formed of Gen. Har Rison s military merits i am not aware of having said anything to justify them. Having never a admired general Harri son As a military Man or considered him As possessing the qualities which constitute the commander of an army i have looked at his political relay tops alone in the opinions 1 have formed or expressed respecting his pretentious to the presidency stand the consequences which would result to the country should the Suffrages of the people place him in that High office. I am very respectfully your obedient servant Andrew Jackson. Albany evening journal in announcing the death of Robert Packard says the deceased was years of age and sustained during he the character of a highly re to Nestable and honest Man. He was the o dest practical Printer in Albany and for Many be fort superintended the business of printing for the state tinder the firm of Packard and Van Bethny my. If death will be deeply Felt and Long regretted by All who knew him. From whatever cause or an whatever authority statements May be made representing me As having changed my new of the leading measures of the sent administration they Are in need and unjust. Of the Wisdom importance of these measures and particularly of that which Aims at the establishment by Congress of a fiscal Agency for the government without the use or Aid of Banks Lime and the fullest Opportunity for reflection have left not a doubt on my mind. And the ability which or. Van Buren has manifested in developing the bearing of this great question and its antagonist one on the free institutions of our country and the he has displayed in holding on to the True interests of the people when there has been so much temptation to Compromise them entitle him in my judgment to a rank not inferior to that of or Jefferson or or. Mad Ison As a Patriot or states Man. With such opinions of the present chief magistrate and of the measures to which he has Given his opinions which i have never failed to express when i have had occasion to speak on the is surprising How any one could take up the idea that my Confidence in him had been impaired or that i had become indifferent As to the Choice to be made at the next election Between him and Gener Al Harrison. Looking upon the latter gentleman As the representative of fed eral principles in the present contest and knowing that he has never been identified with the great Republican party in any of its great struggles against the influences which have been calculated to take Power from the peo ple and the states and give it to the general government to suppose that i would for a moment think of giving my support to such an individual As a candidate for the presidency would be a mockery of All Public Princi address of or Van Buren during the last War. We do not believe that we could pos Sibly submit to our readers a Richer intellectual treat than the following extracts of an address reported by pres ident Van Buren in the legislature of new York during the last War and unanimously adopted by Fiat it is indeed an inestimable relic not Only on account of its inimitable Elo Quence and Force of thought but also on account of the pure and exalted Stream of patriotism which flows in Rich profusion from its every a Lite and sentence. From it is happily reflected the pure and exalted love of country which has Ever animated the bosom our illustrious chief magistrate and which has no eminently characterized All his actions in the various important Public stations which it has been his destiny Ato fill. Read it republicans read it carefully and although you May have read it an Hundred times before read it again and Ponder Over the High and ennobling sentiments it contains. And having done so we ask you in the sincerity of our hearts to answer what is your estimate of the integrity of a party who with such a production spread As it were in letters of living Light upon the records of their country can deliberately publish and reiterate the glaring falsehood that Mann Van Buren was opposed to the last War does not refutation of a Griss libel upon one of the Best and purest Patnott in the land fully convince Jou that not the least de Pende Nee can be placed in any of their assertions extracts from an address delivered by or. Van Buren in the legislature of new York during the last War. Fellow country is at War and great Britain is her enemy. Indulge us in a Brief Examina Tion of the causes which have led to it and Brief As from the necessary limits of an address it must yet Hope it will be found sufficient to con Vince every honest Man of the High Justice and Inch sensible necessity of the attitude which our government has taken of the sacred duty of every real american to support it in that Atti tude and of the parricide a views of those who refuse to do so after a summary of the causes which brought on the War the address goes on under such accumulated Circum a stances of insult and of injury we ask again what was your government to do we put the question not to that action which misrepresents the government to the people and the peo ple to the government Traduce one half of the. Nation to cajole the and by keeping up distrust and Divi Nion wishes to become the proud arbiter of the Fortune and Fate of Ameri to them but to every sound head and honest heart in the nation is that we put the question what was your government to do was she basely and i gloriously to abandon the rights for which you and your fathers fought and bled was she so Early to cower to the nation which had sought to strangle us in our which has never ceased to retard our approach to manhood no we will not for a moment doubt that every Man who is in truth and act an american will say that War and War alone was our Only Refuge from National degrade Only course to National pros Are warm against us cruel and bloody cry while our Western wilds Are withering with the Bones of our murdered women and Chil their blood is yet trick Ling Down the Walls of their former Hab the Indian War whoop and the British drum Are unison saluting the ears and the British Dag Ger and he in Han de Over the Heads of our Meh a time when the soul of every Man who has sensibility to feel his country s wrongs and the spirit to de lend her Rigi its should be in is that they cry peace while the Brave american tar the intrepid defender of our rights and redeemer of our nation Al character the present boast and future Honor of our impressed by Force into a service he which compels a brother to imbue his hands in a brother s he is yet tossing upon the surface of the Ocean and mingling his t groans with those tempests less Savaso than his persecutors that waft him o a return less Dis Tance from his Fame y and his is at such a can be no peace without sacrificing every thing our feelings Are insulted the Publ Darm paralysed and the Public ear stunned by the dastardly Aad incessant cry of peace Fel Low citizens must be the opinion which they entertain of you can any Man be so stupid As not to perceive that it Isan Appeal to your fears to your Ava Rie and to All the baser passions which actuate the human heart that it is approaching you in the manner in which alone those puny Post icons who Buz about you and thicken the Politi Cal atmosphere say you Are accessible through your fears and your pockets can any american citizen be so profligate As not to spurn indignantly the base libel upon his character suffer yourselves not to be deceived by the pretence that because great Britain has been forced by her subjects to make a qualified repeal of her 01 Ders our government ought to abandon her ground. That ground was taken to resist two great and crying grievances the destruction of our Commerce and the imprisonment of our seamen. The latter is the most important in proportion As we prefer the Liberty and lives of our citizens to their property. Distrust therefore the Man who could advise your government at any time and More especially at this when your Brave sailors Are exciting the admiration and forcing the respect of an astonished world when their deeds of heroic valor make old Ocean smile at the humiliation of ancient such a time we say again Mark the Man who would countenance government in committing our Sai lors rights for the safety of our Mer chants goods.

From Shif Philadelphia casket. Storming Stony Point. A Romance of the revolution. Ruhe night had already settled Down gloomy and forbid a on the evening of the 15th, july 1779, when the advancing column of a Little army whose uniform betokened it to be american emerged from a thick Wood on the Shore of the Hudson and in an instant the whole dim and shadowy Prospect disclosed to them along the Bank of the River opened to the sight. Far away Lay Verplanck s Point now buried in a Shadow while on the other Side of the River dark gloomy and fro Vining Rose up the craggy Heights of Stony Point. Washed on three sides by the Hudson and on the other except along a narrow Road by a morass the fort deemed one of the most impregnable upon the River and its capture regarded As almost impassible. Yet to achieve that Gallant purpose this Little army was now upon its March. J a turn in the Road soon hid them from the River and after a silent March of some minutes duration they arrived within a mile and a half of the enemy s lines and halting at the command of their officers formed into for the attack. Beginning again their March they soon reached the marshy ground at the base of the Hill. Said the Low voice of the general from the front we Are nigh the order passed in a whisper Down the line and the column passed on the Edge of the morass. It was a moment of suspense and peril. Every Man Felt that in a few minutes the Fate of their hazardous Enterprise would be deter mined and that they would either be cold in death or the american Flag. And then followed the Quick Roll of the drum. In an instant the enemy were at theii1 posts and As the Gallant Continentals still maintained their silent but steady March fire such As omy desperation could produce burst from every Embr asure of the fort. The incessant rattle of the musketry the Roar of the artillery the crashing of the Grap shot and the lurid Light Flung Over the scene by the explosion of the shells and the streams of fire pouring from the fort formed a picture which no pen can describe.

De Rochow is entirely indebted to the King for his eminent position and is also highly esteemed by the Prince Royal who has been attached to him from his earliest youth. It might be said that his majesty contemplated in m. De Rochow who is a states All of the first order the future prime minister of his son. The King directed that his body shall be depose cd in the Charlottenburg by the Side of of his Queen Louisa. The funeral of Frederic William Hai taken place with great pomp the emperor of Russia the hereditary grand Duke of Mecklenburg Prince Freder ick of the Netherlands and More than 20 princes and princesses followed the body to the grave. The following details will give an idea of the produced on the prussian capital by the death of thu King.

The Prince de wit Gesten the oldest Friend and servant of the King was in profound the immediate symptoms of approach ing death commenced on the morning of the 7th. An immense crowd at this time surrounded Palace. It will be easily conceived that in an absolute monarchy governed from the year 1797 by the same King who through Good an evil Fortune had maintained his popularity a change of government was a circumstance calculated to pro Duce a sensation. At about half past twelve the emperor of Russia arrived at full Gallop in his Little travelling Carriage by the Rue Royale in front of the Small Palace.
