he wins your confi-Ieate, as 'twere, by ma

a false coloring, to his dark designs, and im
poses on credulity his spurious but ambitious
principles, for tbe genuine, unadulterated
maxims of a republican. Such is Aaron
Burr. But he has been detected. The en
lightened citizens of America have rent the
veil that concealed hia traitor soul, and given
him up a prey to remorse and anguish. It

" Gen Eaton is. new in this town ; and he
says, that be has seen a letter hut a few day
from Marietta, (Ohio) which informed, that
col. Burr was there, and was undertaking, er
entiekvoting to undtrtake, an expedition-. ;
that he had actually engaged seme boats, and
offered corrmi'siona to a number of young; .
gentlemen, in those parts to engage with him
in what he (Burr) said "would be a laudable
and honorable undertaking." Gen. E. has
no doubt that Burr's intention Is to erect , a
sepcrale government west of the Allegha
Dies, and probably make himself either a
aevercign. or be viceroy te seme foreign
prince. The latter I am inclined to think,
cannot be the motive. . Spain will not be in a
condition to support such a colony as perhaps
France may. Should Burr raise an insur
