The political 'writing of Thomas Jef-
ferson have not only exercised a vast
influence over the affairs of this coun-
try but have deeply affected the in-
terest of the civilized? world. He has
done more to elucidate the true princi-
ples on which governments should be
founded and to expose that species of
machinery called- government by
which the many have so long been
held in servile .bondage by and com-
pelled to pay tribute to the few than
any other man who'has yet lived. His
volumes are text bocks for the liberal
and philosophic politician from which
be deduces the purest axioms of politi-
cal science. And to their prevalence
in this country mayj'in a great mea
sure he attributed that extraordinary
amount of happiness and prosperity
which the people hae enjoyed and
which has been the bonder and mar-
vel of nations that have not participa-
ted in the blessings of a republican
i-overnment. The writings of Jeffer-
son are constantly exerting an influ.
enCc over the political doctrines of
this country and tire people are every
day heo'oiMinfi more and more imbued
with the p.-frciplcs which he taught;
and are leaning frora "m tie tru na"

should ever be foremost to vindicate

Iris connected with the most impor-
tant event of our national history and
however meritorious it may be. as a IN
teraryprodtiction (& its transcendent
merits cannot be denied) it will bear
afong with the name of its author to
the remotest posterity. To strip him
of the honor of the authorship of this
splendid intellectual effort the leading
literary periodicals which have gene-
rally been under the control of the fed-
eral prty have been often labored
with a zeal worthy of a more
patriotic cause. Nor have they yet
ceased in their futile efforts to rob the
departed sage of his well merited hon-
ors and to corrupt tho voice of history
wherever it is disposed to bear evidence
in his favor. A late number 'of the
North American Review contains a
letter purporting to have been written
by John Adams in which is to be found
the following: 'As you observe there
is not an dea in it the Declaration of
Independence but what has been hack-
neyed in Congress for two years be-
fore ' This extract is now bandied
about in the federal papers in the hope
probably of convincing the people that
Jefferson was not entitled to the least
credit for the authorship of tho Decla-
ration particularly on tho score of ri-
ginality. Suchvdespicable efforts to
cloud the fame of one of tho most illus
trious benefactors of man will fail of
its intended effect and draw down upon
the authors the contempt and execra-
tion of every honest man who is a pat.
riot and a friend to liberal principles.

who escaped conviction at VicksKurg
and singularly escaped pursuit in Mad-
son county where he was chased with
track dogs for 23 miles when he jum.

and has not since been detected.
Towards the evening of examining the
brothers Earle A'illiam (as being the
oldest most cunning and most strongly
suspected) was taken from his confine-
ment and resort was had to the lash to
force confession. He amused his exe-
cutionary judges with lies for a time;
but finding the Lychmen would not be
cajoled he promised to make confession
next morning whin composed.
On going in tho morning to the jail
thev found William composed and
deaf to their enquiries and entreaties:
he had hung himself during the night.
John was again put on this trial. He
felt glad that his brother had gone so:
for he himself would have been killed
for turning informer. Such was the
path of the conspirators. He then sta-
tfit. more minutely the f.icfs implicating
Boyd; ai?d his having . himselt been
compelled at Vicksburg by his own
mother as well as brother to "prove an
alibi when Boyd was tried. He also
narrated several matters concerning
the conspiracy which proved him in
the opinion of his judges to L&- 'guilty.
He was consequently condemned an

it are sufficiently distinct. On one side
is a Censor with incense burning and
this inscription in' Hebrew characters:
"Shekel of Israel." On the reverse is
an olive tree and the inscription "The
Holy Jerjsalem." No date indicates
its ago and it may thence be inferred
that at the time of its coinage the cus-
tom of dating njpney had not been in-
traduced. As the Romans were care-
ful along with tho independence of the
nations thev subdued to merge also
their institutions and distinctive char-
acter it can hardly be supposed that a
coinage of their own was permitted to
the Jews after the conquests of Jeru-
salem. Upon this .supposition which is cer-
tainly a probable one this shekel must
be more than eighteen hundred years
old. How many vague associations and
conjectures cluster around it. It may
hae been upon somo table of the mon-
ey changers which our Saviour QVr
threw at the temple. It may have been
one of the thirty pieces of silver which
were tendered tq the traitor Judas as

Statistics. Out of a population of
thirty-two millions in France five mill-
ions are in a state of abject poverty.
130000 desolate the 'country by all
sorts of depredations and about 30000
are taken up annually and 'punished.
It costs about 4000000 frs. annually
fer the safety "of the Toads cities and
the like. About 2000000 francs worth
of property is stolen annually. There
arc about 150000 in the 'civil an4"mil-
itary prisons or who are alternately in
the hospitals houses of refuge and the
like. About 60.000 Children are dc-
sorted by their parents who have no
home but the forests caves of smug-
glers ect. where they can hide them
selves and the greatest part of those
sixty thousand arb in a destitute state;
and to what precedes three millions of
individuals whose means of existeuce
are not secured to them a month before
hand. And we may add to this number I
11000 to 12000 let out from the gal-
leys; and 7000 to'8000 from the pris
ons. It is Calculated that about 50000

the fortitude with which women sustain
