We have only space to present
the President's reply to the Albe
marle invitation, to accept of a
public dinner in the town of Char
lottesville, which is as follows:
Washington, Feb. 14, 1837.
Gentlemen: The kind manner
in which you propose to welcome
me in Albemarle on my way to the
Hermitage, and the affectionate
feeling, the general enthusiasm
with which yon reirard my life of
public service, now just closing, is
that most grateful reward to which
lone my ambition has aspired.
Vow that I have reached the good
old age of threescore and ten, and
find my fellow cititens, (if I ma
trust the indulgent judgment con
veyed in your letter) ready to
pteet me "faithful servant," I mat
well turn my heart in deep and
humble devotion to the author of
my being, and pour out its laU i these useful institutions nfthe State
tribute in thanks to thp hpnpfl.ilt
cence which has permitted me to
luini a destiny, considered by my
country to have been both honor
able and useful.
You recur to the reproaches of
tyranny, usurpation and despot-
3u4 vviui wHicn I nave oeen pur
sued in the course of my adminis
tration of the public affairs, and
tell me, that as "plain Andrew
Jackson, stripped of the insignia
of office, and divested of power,
you may pay to the man and the
patriot, without suspicion, ihe
voluntary homage of respect,"
&c. &c. Let me assure you, gen
tlemen, that there are no circum
stances under which it could be so
grateful to me; and I trust, that
many now besides my political
friends, will be found readv to do
justice to the motives of the man,
who have never aouroved the acts
Of the marnstratf Thorn !
many among us who look with a
jealous and fearful eye on the peo
ple -wno leel in the supremacy
of their will, the despotism of mif-
lions, and as I have, I trust with
iiuskt inking' firmness given effect
to the wishes of the great constitu
ent body Which, vvlipn I enlr.wl
upon the duties as Chief .Magis
trate, I promised faithfully to rep
resent, t could not hope to escape
for the time, the hostility and hate
ol those who hold the power of the
people the most dreadful of tyran
nies. That feeling will now abate,
when in the humble walks of pri
vate life, I divide with my Repub-
ican lriends the intense odium
which, as their prominent repre
sentative, I have for years concen
trated on myself.
I here is no spot in the world
where it would give me so much
pleasure to rest me, after laving
down the load of public duty, as
in ihe view of Aloniicello, and no
people with whom it would be

The County Courts. At the
last session of our Legislature, an
act was passed in elation to Coun
ty Courts, which if carried out by
the Magistrates of the several
counties, will gre uly promote the
administration of justice and im
part dignity tud respectability to
the County Courts, annually, to
appoint a certain number of their
own body to hold their Courts, alid
to pay them a sum not exceeding
three dollars, nor less than one
dollar per day, for their services.!
We have been an eye witness, in
several of the Counties, to the
benefit arising from this system,
and therefore can speak knowing
ly of its advantages. We have
frequently regretted that our own
County has not adopted " it. At
present, where there are no special
Courts, it is made the sworn duty
of all the magistrates of the Coun
ty to hold the County'Courts, and
the result verifies the old adage
"what is every body's business, is
made the business of no one." We
have witnessed in Caswell, as well j have transpired which indicated
as other Counties, the ludicrous: an intention to subject him to bun
spectaele of the Sheriff and his1 dage of another sort.
deputies, who in law are the ser
vants of the Tonrt, oing about
over the Court yard begging and'
teasing the Magistrates to go into
the Court house and do that, which
is their lawful, as well as sworn
duty, to do. We have seen the
whole Court change during the
trial of a State or criminal prose
cution, and after the conviction off
the defendant, and w hen the Coun
ty Solicitor prays the judgment of!
the ' .curt, they are entirely ignor
ant of the nature of the nffence, or
the circumstances attending its
commission. They are therefore
totally unprepared to do justice
to the State or the defendant. In
the county of Rockingham, where
the plan has been adopted for sev
eral years, the most beneficial con
sequences have resulted from it.
We wish not to be considered
invidious when we say, that the
Presiding Magistrate of that Court
would not disgrace a much higher
tribunal. The system is there
found, independent of its other ad
vantages, a pecuniary saving to
the county. At a late term of that
ottrt, i hey met on Monday, went.

fX7"A rumor was circulated in
our town yesterday not a little
extraordinary jn its character.
Dan Cupid or Madam Philanthro
py having made a lodgment in
the breast of a dame of about 28
winters in the neighborhood of
Halifax, N. C. impelled her to
quit her relatives, and start as
a gentleman on a pilgrimage with
the object of her attachment, a
veritable negro. A horse and
cart were immediately pressed to
further this design, and onward
the confiding pair wended their
way, happy as the prospect of the
near realization of their hopes
could render them. Things turn
ed oul much to their mutual satis
faction until they reached Norfolk.
Here some difficulty arose in ac-
ting out the relationship between
master and his man. Sambo was
incautious and talked mysterious
ly. His protector was incumber
ed with the horse and cart, and
made a very silly offer of ilnni for
a sum-grossly k unequal to their
worth. Something was evidently
rotten in the state of Dti.inark.
The police smelt a rat, and one
ofthem on entering the room yes
terday morning discovered a pro
fusion of locks cltisirrinp artMUui
the shoulders oftl.e kind gentle
man. The secret was soon out
and the adventurous couple were
as quickly in jail. The design
disclosed was to take the negro
on to New York and there to set
him free. Such disinterestedness,
however is not much credited by
some as circumstances are said to
This is a miserable affair which
