We find the following anecdote of;
General Washington in a latfe English
publication- and copy; it (whether, true
orf als )r as characteristic. iViweuw .i
Neic York, 1822. r X i
. During his administration as Presi
dent of the United States, a gentleman,!
the friend and the companion "of the
general, throughout y the whole course
of the rerolutionarjMrar," applied for a
lucratiTe and rery responsible office.'
The gentleman was afrall times welcome
to Washington's table; he had been, to;
a certain degree, necessary to the., do
mestic repose pi a man, ho had for
seren years fought the battles of his
country, and who had now undertaken,
the task of wielding her political ener4
giesL Ai all times, and in-all places
Washington regarded his revolutionary
associate with ah eye of evident partial
ny ana iananess. ne was a juviai
Dleasant. and unoDtrusive companion.
In applying for the office, it was accorcl-1
lngiy in tne iaiil connaence oi success;
and his friends already cheered him on
the prospect of his arrival at competen
cy "and ease. .The opponent' or this
gentleman, was knfown to be decidedly
hostile to the politics of .Washington ;
he had eren made himself conspicuous
amongst the ranks of opposition. He
had, however, the" temerity to stand as
candidate fo. the office to which : the
friend and the favorite of Washington
aspired. He had nothing to targe in
favor of his pretensions, but strong in
tegrity, promptitude, and fidelity in bus-
mess, ana every quaiiiy wnicn, ii caiiea
into exercise, uld render service to
the state. Every one considered the ap-
plication of this man. hopeless;.no ght-
tennu wrsnmoaiiii oi merit uau ue io
present to the eve of Washington: he
was known to be his political enemy ;
he was opposed by a favourite of the
general's; and yet, with such "fearful
odds, he dared to stand candidate. What
was the result? The enemy of Wash-
ington was appointea to tne omce, ana
his table companion was left, destitute
ana dejected. A mutual friend, who
interested himself in the affair, ventur
ed to remonstrate with the president on
the injustice of his appointment. My
friend,' said he, I receive, with a cordial
welcome; he is welcome to my house,
and welcome to my heart; but with 'all
his good qualities, he is not a man df
business. His opponent is, with all his
political hostility to me, a man of busi
ness; my private feelings haye nothing
to. do in this case. Iam not George
Washington, but President of the .Unit
ed States; as George Washington,; I
would do this man any kindness in my
power; but as President of the United
States I can do nothing-
Is the principle here taught by . hint
who was called "The Father of his Conn-
try" a correct principle T What is frt
That the apHiinting power should con
sider atone, the fitness of the candidate; to
perform the dutaes required. The officer
to be appointed U not to be the servant
of the appointee, but the servant of the
people ; for, as in the case of Washington,
both the appointing power and the man
appointed to office, are: alike answerable
to the iieople for the projer discharged
duty in the offices which they respective
If then there is an office to be filled by
the Paesident or one of the Heads of De
partnienti, and it is of a nature which in?
timately concerns the jteopleof a ny giveu
comiuunity, the, best " recommendation
any candidate for tlar place could possess
on which t go -before such appointing
power, would be some expression of that
community's wishes in the premises.
Let us, for example, take our case of
selecting a new Postmaster. It would be
good evidence of a candidate's fitness if
the community who know him well would
an some way declare iu UU favor t This
could be done either in the way suggest
ed last week, or by a public meeting of
uetnocratic voters wherein the fituestbf
all candidates conld be considered and
decided by vote. We sav Demnrmti
vorers, because in this case, a wider
rauge could not be admitted without a
surrender of one of the fruits of our late
victory over the Republican party. The
uox plan would be governed by the same
rule Democrats alone would be entitled
to vote.' - ; 1T3 'l "I "
It is apparent that either of these two
methods for ascertaining the popular Will
is far preferrable to that of signing peti
tions. There aa-eat least a dozen netatioaas
an circulation aaunpgst us, and everv One
n n ineroua signers. The tame man
has signed several of them-rone declares
Ms purpose' to sign every one presented
to him ; so that, so far as the petitions co,
they are worthless as indicating the Dem.
ratic will of) this coiunininty. They do
not even sjieak the houest couvictioU of
the signers "tlmselves, except in those
austances where signers aaaay have limW
ed themselves to signing one petition ouiv
