The late Gov. Clinton. The
following extract of a letter from
Gov. Clinton to a friend in North
Carolina, is published at the re
quest of the gentleman to whom
it was addressed, for the purpose
of showing the numerous arid re
spectable body of persons, who
were known to be ardently at
tached to that distinguished man,
and to rely almost implicitly up
on his opinions, what those opin
ions really were respecting Gen.
Jackson. New-York Ev. Post,
"Albany, 2st April, 182G.
"I received your favor through
Mr. Emmet, and am much pleas
ed with Gen. Jackson's prospects.
His popularity is rising every day
in this quarter, and so far as my
opinion lias weight with my friends
they are the friends of Gen. Jack
son." "I think it would augur
well for our republican institu
tions, if men of such exalted pu
rity as the General were selected
to preside over the destinies of

are decidedlv of opinion that had
Gen. Jackson pursued the British
army after their defeat, the chan
ces were nine in ten that he
would have captured or destroyed
the whole of them. So satisfied
was Gen. Gaines of the certainty
of success which would have at
tended pursuit, that on his arrival
at New-Orleans on the evening of
the za ot January, and in his first
interview with Gen. Jackson, he
pointed out to him the brilliant
opportunity he had lost of adding
to his own reputation and that of
the nation, without jeopardizing
the safety of the country.
"I saw the opportunity that pre
sented itself, (said the General,)
and with a perfect knowledge of
every thing attending our respec
tive situations, estimated the chan
ces in my favor even higher than
you do. Success was almost cer-
tain, but would have been attnnr .
ed with a terrible destruction of
human life, and there was n nns.
sibility of failure! What would
nave ueen tne consequences of
such failure? Would not the peo-
pie nave said, and truly too, that I
had sacrificed the whole western
country with a view of adding to
my individual fame? Wouldthe
conquest of the British armyhavc
rendered the country any safer
than it now is by defeat! How
then could I have justified to a re
flecting people, even if I had suc-
cecueu, an act which might have
been attended with such disas
trous effects! Believing as I did,
that the safety of the country did
not require their capture, I could
not consent to purchase addition
al laurels by the sacrifice of some
cignt or ten hundred of my fellow-citizens
who had assnmnd
arms in defence of their native
soil, and not to win a reputation
for their leader."
On relating this anecdntn Hon
Gaines remarked, "I had long
known Gen. Jackson to be a me
ritorious, high-minded, but never
till then did 1 properly estimate
the patriotism which had marked
cvqry act of his public life, and
taught him to despise personal
fame. An intimate intercourse
with him for many years, has for
cibly impressed upon me the con
viction, that both as a public and
private man, he more closely re
sembles Washington than any in
dividual that America has produ
ced." N. 1. Courier.
Electioneering. But few of our rea
ders, perhaps, are aware of the extremes
to which the-partizans of the Adminis
tration are hurrying, as the Presidential
Election approaches many of them ap
pear to be actuated by the spirit of Rich
ard III. at the battle of Bosworth, when
he exclaimed, "my soul and body on the
issue:" and we are fearful that they will
not even have the consolation left, six
weeks hence, of exclaiming as Francis I.
did after the battle of Pavia, "we have
lost every thing but our honor.,, No
absurdity appears too gross for them
no sacrifice loo great: among oth
er ingenious devices, as President
Adams would say, his partizans
are now endeavoring to persuade the
people of New-York, that "Me British
merchants have created a fund to pro
mote the election of Gen. Jackson!19
And, in Pennsylvania, a Dr. Gideon
Humphrey has been induced to "sacri
fice private feeling," in order to give
publicity to what follows:

And that Gen. Jackson was at that
critical period at Ghent, writing to his
friend Leavitt Harris thus:
"Divided among ourselves, more
in passions than interest, with
half the nation sold by their pre
judice and their ignorance to our
enemy, with a feeble and penuri
ous government, with five frigates
for a navy, and scarely five effi

The candid reader will doubtless na
turally inquire, why the Doctor's "sacri
fice" did not extend to giving publicity
to the whole letter, instead of that part
only which contained the "desired infor
mation:" a due estimate will probably be
placed upon this "sacrifice," when it is
known that it could not be ascertained
whether it is not another forgery , pre
vious to the elections in Pennsylvania.
