Smyth, copicd from the Richtnond (Va.) Whig, of the 16th inst. deserve the serious considera tion of the American People. Kvidencc is at length furnished of the existence of Combinations formed to take the elec tion of President of the United States from the people, who.are to* have no o- ther participation in it, than an accom plishment of the machinations of thi CoMmvATiox may render necessary. The fact of the existence of such combinations, extraordinary as it is, and mortifying a« it must be to the independent electors of the country, is acknowledged by a mem- i)er of the House of Representatives, who is desirous of remaining in Congress, not for the purpose of performing his consti- utional dutir.s a.5 a legibiator for the Un ion, but to assist in completing “ the Combniations for eirecting ‘.he elevation of Genera! Jackson, which are nearly complete IJ. Jour. [From the llichniond Whig, Feb. 16.] (ien. Floyd's Letters.—The late hour at which wo rcc»-ivfd iheextracisfrom Gen. Floyd’s letters, road to the House of Del- eguies by Gen. Sinyih, precluded us in t)ur iast paper from noticing these pre cious specimens »»!’ epistolary merit as fully as we wished. We then look no tice that (ien. Sniylh had garbled the ex tracts read in t!>e House—one particular passage, in wliicb Gen. Floyd asserts the upper part ol' \'irginia to be the great theatre of the intrigues of the Adminis tration, was not tu be found in the extracts collated for the [iress, though we well re member its being read in the House— and though Dr. i'loyd too, may perhaps have occasion to remember it. Upon what ])rinci])le was this passage of Dr. Floyd’s )et;ei- suppuv^si d by (itn. Smyth? If worthy lo influence the deliberations of tlie House of Delegates, was it not wurtiiy lo be seen and read by the peo ple jf V'a. If it be true tliat the ujiper part of Virginia is the great theatre of Admiiiistrutiofi intugue, ought not the .'00(1 people of thai jiart of the common wealth to b( apprised of it, that they may right to elect Jackson by conil)inations a- mong the Members of Congress, without at all cons ling the people. It was i>ar- gain, sale and corruption in day. to votes as his District wished him, and as his State was willing ho should vote, but it is perfectly fair, nay, highly meritorious and patriotic in Dr. Floyd and his asso ciates, exercising their opportunities and influence as IMemliers of Congress, to eombinc to elect Jackson. That Mr. Clay should be reconciled to Mr. Adaois, with whom he had only differed but on the subject of the Mississippi and the fisher-* ies, politically, and never perscnaii), was irrefragable evidence of their corruption, of bargain and sale—but when Mr. Cal houn and Mr. Randolph, Gtn. Jackson and Col. Kenton, Mr. Calhouti and Dr, F!o\d, are reconciled—men whose long^ and rancorous mutual liatred is notorious —and when a close intimacy succeeds for the purpose of effecting a common end, all this is complimented as a mag nanimous proceeding. It is time that the people were looking^ to their rights. The avowal is made that combinations are on foot among the njen whom they have sent to attend to their business at \Vashington, to elect the President themselves. It is plain that the people are to be cheated. The avowal is made by a man who brags of his influence among his associates, and is in all their secrets. Will they sul)mit to this dictation of their servants ? Will they submit to have a President crammed down their throats by a combination oC members of ('ongress ? Already the in fluence of the people in the election of a President is nominal—already a caucus at Richmond kindly takes off their hands all but the name of the election—now we are to have a combination of members of Congress, to take from the people the little agency they have remaining in the choice of a President. This combination of members of Congrcbs is going to do the very thing which they imputed to Mr. Clay—they mean to lake the elec* lion of President in their own hand.s, and cheat the people with a nominal i;»stru« mentality. And who are the men who arc the men v. ho composc this combina tion } Men who are seeking office : one is to be Secretary of State—another of War—another of the Navy—another of the Treasury—This one is to go Minister to England, and- one to France. Tins ex pectation of oirice—this liope of prefer ment frorn General Jackson, fljitered by his coTifideniial friends—this is the a,,,.. w. ...a. t .. ay cemcnt which binds together the heiero- I... put on the mics calM lh= 0|,|,...ilion. and I. a.,d...;.tnc„.s of pow.-r, anu l.icy ,e tl,o« “ may know how lo estimate properly, Dr. rio\d’s inugnanimity in reliiKjuishing the honor of being Governor of Virginia, for lions which are nearly completed, to e- lect (ien. Jackson.” This is al the bot tom of all the sentimental patriotism so .lu- pu.-|...,c- ol s ay.nt; al Wa.l.n.|;iun to wutc 1, tl,nu and tlu; (.overniiKul f Or Wo hope the- .eader has nuT thrown a- Smyth afraid ol that our la., paper containinB tl.c «- passage to the delioerale scrutiny of the public, liiough he was willing lo use it, when time and opportunity did not ad mit of its refu ation ? But ihis is not all. There was anoth er passage supj>ressed still more impor tant. There was atiother passage sup pressed still more euriotts Gen. Floyd informs his friend and correspondent, that “the combinniions for effecting the elevation of Cien. Jackson were nearly complete, and that he wished to remain in Congress unlil they were com)>lete.” ('onihinn/ions—OLnd among whom ? The People ? No—but the Members of Con gress ! Take notice, gentle reader, that these are no combinations between Adams and Clay—they are combinations a- tiiong those pure and immaculate genlle- iiun w ho have denounced all combina tions, as cheating the people—who call the serving of .Mr. Clay under Mr. Adams, the coalitMjn ii lite i)uriian and the black leg—and who, jjremniini'a. combinulion between them for the purpose of eh'cting tlu. laiK r President of the United Stales, liavo applietl to this jihantotn every term of moral and poIitK al reprobation. We lirid that these same pure Sc immaculate gentlemen—these virtuous [latriots who were lin fi with :o holy an indignation al I his at/jjjioscd fraud upon the popular will, are, ov the roiil'essions of so important a nu'iiiher of their parly as Dr. Floyd, coinbiiiing, and for the same purpose, of inuking a President. “ The combinations lor electing (General Jackson are nearly complete !’' So the /yt.y//e, notwithstari'I- ing the s(dicitude for their rights, and the deniincialions a|.';aiiisl Messrs.

We wish him to preserve ihose letiers as e- pisiolary modek. We invite the utien- tionofthe people of Upper Virgind to the assertion made by Dr. F'lo\d, liiat part of the State is the “great iheaireoi’ the intrigues of the Adnjinistraiion,”and that he desires to remain in Congress to look afier them. The survey of their country, for the purposes of Internal Im provement, is evidence of the conupt views of the Administration and Dr. Floyd must remain in Washington to take care that the people are not intrigu ed with effectually. His fears that they will be corrupted are of course very- strong, when, to prevent it, he sacrifices the honor of being Governor of Vii ginia. “The upper part of V’irginia is the great theatre of the intrigues of the a»!nunis- tration,” and he, Dr. Floyd, must remain in Washington, to prevent the peopl^' there from being corrupted by ihe in trigues of the Administration. Very co/nplimentai y to tlu; people of Upper Vir ginia, and lo the Doctor’s own Disirict, ii must be acknowledged ! High confi*- dence he must have in the integrity of the people of V'lrginia, when he insinuates that the mere survey of iheir country (we suppose he meant this) by order of the (government, and at the suggestion of iheir own Hepre.seiilatives, is to buj’ them over to the Administration, and seducR them from their allegiance to (Jen. Jack son ! Still higher confidence must he possess in /timse/f^ when his presence is ne cessary at Washington, to prevent the people of Upper \'a. .‘'rom being corrupt ed by the Adminisiraiioii! Wo hope the peoj)le of IJolelourt, Rockbridge, (jiles St Montgomery, will not forget to reward the Doctor’s great palrioti:,m, and res pect to them, at the next election. .'Imerican UooL—Yesterday were rc- coiv(d Ml this cily, in a long train oi‘ sleds, about 20iOou lbs. of W'ool, consign ed to Messrs.
