Washington, May 1st, 1835.
Gentlemen: I have the pleasure
to acknowledge the receipt by the
hands of the Chief Clerk of the
Fourth Auditor's office, of your
communication, dated 27ih ult.
For this expression of your per
sonal kindness. I tender vou mv
heartfelt thanks; and it i the more
grateful to me, because it was en
tirely spontaneousand unexpected
It has been my design in public
life to carry mvselfwith perfect
justice and impartiality toward

an wmi wnoin i may nave naa
official relations; and the united
expression ol your good will,
which has been sought by me in
no other way, is at the same time
a confirmation of the soundness of
the principle, and the most grati
fying evidence of my success in
its practical application.
You do me justice when you
say, that I have never exacted
from you more than I was myself
willing to perform. In our Gov
ernment, where public officers are
but the servants of the People, the
j nigtier the elevation and the great
fear and trembling; but at the
same time with a firmness of pur
pose which nothing can shake, to
devote all my bodily and mental
nowers to its service: and il 1 fail,
it shall be because il is impossible
for me to be successful. Being
indebted for the appointment, not
to any political arrangement, but
solely to the confidence the Presi
dent reposes in me, I have no mo
tive to actuate me, but by a taith
ful discharge of the duties of the
station, to enable him to close his
administration with honor, ad
vance my own reputation, and
promote the interests of our coun
Tothe slanders of the profligate
and misinformed, of which you
speak, 1 have long since become
measurably indifferent. You,
gentlemen, of whom I have never
exacted the slightest political ser
vice, and to whom I have never
uttered a word with the view to
influence your political opinions
or acts, can bear witness how lit
tle probable it is that I would
prostitute any public statiou to
party or other improper purposes
If I have lived down these imputa
lions within the narrow sphere of
one office, 1 shall put them down
if I have ormortunitv. upon the
broader theatre of another. While
( shall ever express and maintain
with ardor and firmness, my own
political opinions and principle
as a right which no patriot would
surrender for office, and no honest
man would fail to exercise, I wil
never nermit mvself nor suffer
. - ,
those under my control, if I know
rim I ran nrevent it to brine the
power of office to operate upon
elections, otherwise titan by an
impartial, rigid, and punctilious
discharge ol its duties. It is not
to govern the People, but to serve
them, that offices are created; ant:
a departure from that principle in
their administration, is an ap
proach to those usurpations which
inld so large a portion of man
kind in bondage.
In taking leave of you, I beg
to reciprocate, most cordially, the
oersonal kindness with which
your communication aoounas
To whatever field of action 1 may
be called, I cannot hope lo find
official associates with whom 1 can
act with more pleasure to myself
or more advantage to the public
service; and unexpectedly happy
shall I be, if in any other station
find myself in those respects equa
ly fortunate. From my persona
knowledge of the talents and ex
cellent qualities of my successor,
am quite certain thai you, gentle
men, will have no cause to regret
the change in your official superior
and there remains to me the pleas
ing reflection, that while our offi
cial connexion may be severed, our
personal relations may not only
be preserved, but be made most
intimate. On this anticipation I
rest a large portion of my hopes
of any happiness it may hereafter
be my good fortune to enjoy in
the society of my fellow-men.
Accept, gentlemen for your
selves sev erally, assurances of my
ever-kind and grateful remem
brance, with my best wishes for
your happiness and prosperity.

Dear Sir: It is with regret 1
have to inform you that I have
just returned from an extensive
conflagration of property. A
bout 10 o'clock this forenoon, the
roof of a large stone ware-house,
situated a few rod from the
steam rianeing Macmne, was
discovered to be on fire. At
tached to ihe building were sever
al sheds, under which Lumber,
and barrels Turpentine were
stored. In a few moments the
sheds were on fire, and the blaze
communicated to the adjacent
combustible materials. In a very
short timr.' something like 8,000
bbls. of Naval Stores were on fire,
and ihe large piles of Lumber,
common and planed, shared the
same fatet It was impossible
now so to check its ravages as to
save the planeing Machine on
the North, and the Steam Rice
Mill belonging to the heirs of the
late Wm. G. Beatty, on the South,
and these two valuable Mills are
The Planeing Machine, you
are aware, was owned by our
friend Mr. Lazarus and Messrs.
Seymore, Bergen & Co. of New
York. The Naval stores partly
owned by Mr. Lazarus, and you
will perceive that estimable citi
zen has suffered most severely.
By great exertions Mr. O'Han
lon's Brick-house was saved,
which prevented the fire from ex
tending up to Town, though we
had to cut down his piazza.
Fortunately the new steamer,
Duncan McRae, was not on the
Stocks; nothing could have saved
her. The wind was at first N.
E. but afterwards veered to S. E.
Most f the Rice from the rice
mill was saved.
The entire value of the proper
ty destroyed cannot be less than
from Seventy Five lo One Hun

originated from a spark from the
