4r. fiuchannn and the Editor of the
United Statet'' Ttlepraph.
Tlie manner in which we have been assail
ed, anil the use which hi been made of the
notice which Mr. Buchanan, in hit statement
to the Kditor of the Lancaster Journal, has
taken of his letter to u, dated 16th of October
hist, makes it proper tor us to give an enlarged
extract from it. Mr. Buchanan, in that letter,
says:
'' At this flisiance of time I could not, if I
roi:i'l, explain to you all the cause which in
duced m 13 hold the only conversation I ever
held u iih Gen. Jackson, on the anbieet of the
m-asidcntial election. It will be sufficient.
however, for your purpose, to know that I had
no authority trom jnr. ciay or ins menus io
propose any terms to Gen. Jackson ip relation
to their votes, nor did t make any such pro
position. I trust I would be as incapable of
becoming- a messenger upon such an occasion,
as it is known Gen. Jackson would be to re
ceive such a message.
I repeated the substance of this conrerea
tion to a few friends at Washington; one of
whom must have communicated it to you.
That person, whoever he may be, is entirely
mistaken in supposing the subject of it to have
been what you allege in your letter. I must,
therefore, protest against bringing tlwt con
versation before the people through the me
dium of the Telegraph, or any other news
paper. Tbe facts are before the world, that Mr.
Clsy and bis particular friends male Mr.
Ad.tms President; and that Mr. Adams im
mediately thereafter made Mr. Clay Secretary
of Stale. The people will draw' their own
inference from such conduct, and the circum
stances connected with it. They will judge
of the cause from the effects."
It will be seen (hot Mr. Buchanan's chief
anxiety was to prevent at name from ap
pearing in connexion with this subject. He
jnolentcd against that convenatim being
brought before the public, through the me
ilium of the Telcgrttph, or any other newspa
per. For ourselves, we had no control over
:uiy other papef than the Telegraph Mr.
lliichanan had not disclosed to us what that
conversation was; we had heard it detailed by
Oen. Jackson himself, and, like Gen. Jackson,
v had formed our opinion from tli conver
sation itself. Mr, Buchanan had given his
opinion, that the fact that Mr. Clay and his
friends had made Mr. Adams President, and
that Mr. Adams had, immediately thereafter,
made Mr, Clay Secretary of State, being
before the world, "the people will draw
their own. inferences from, such conduct and
from the draimttancet connected vith it "
Although we believed that the particular
conversation which Mr. Buchanan protested
aijainst being made public through the Tele
graph, or any other newspaper, formed one
of the most important crcttnne connected
'.viih the vote of Mf Clay and his friend for
Jlr. Adams, and although we rercoromttted
as to that particular conversation before we
received Mr. Buchanan' letter, we thought it
One to him to consult him personally btfore
we again referred to it in the Telegraph.
We waited the commencement of the session,
and then sought an interview with Mr. Buch
anan on the subject. His explanation, as we
have before fc'.ated, was accidentally inter
mpted, and never after renewed. It was
cv to ee the reasons for Mr. Buchanan'
leluctante that tliat particular conversationd

easy to see that, however pure and patriotic
Mr. B "s p'Wpose in conver 4."g with General
Jackson mtirht have been, yet it is impossible
t prevent imputations against his integrity of
purpose from being matte oy some, ii wai

circumstances, till that remained for us to do,
was tn seek for the facts. . We did mke in
quiries, and ascertained to our satisfaction,
'hat Mr,. Mai kley Was the agent who was ued
by Mr. Clay to aacerta'uf what Gen. Jackson
w'mi'd do. Thnt the rumors of the day, and
reports ufJ what' Mr. Adams friends had
tendered to Mr. Clay's friends, were told to
Vr. Buchanan, for "the purpose of exciting
bin. to bear them to Gen. Jackson.: Mr.

demns. What are the facts conftnunicated by
Mr lliichanan to Gen. Jackson?
We hope we shall be understood when we
call the mind of our readers to a very strong
point in thus cas; , Mr, Buchanin ad nita that
his object in visiting Gen. Jackao.i was to ob
tain from him a pledge that he would not it p.
point Mr. Adams Secretary of State He
tells in that he believes that pledge would
have had a happy influence upon the votes of
Mr. Ctay and his friends, who wanted the
seeond office for Mr. Clay
He tells us his reasons for making this call.
originated in the rumors he had heard, and the
important fact Communicated by Mr. Markley,
that the friends of M AJ urn had prmicd to
make Mr. Clay Secretary of St. le, if Mr.
Adams were elected; atid lest this ttatement
of facts should authorize the inference that
be was ailthomrd bv Mr. Clay an, I his friends
to fuake terms as to votes, he now s:u s that he
was not so authorized Now, let it be re
membered ,that Mr. Buchanan's avowed ob
ject, at the ti ne he had ihe conversation with
General Jackson, was to obtain the pledge,
which he nimself believed wouhl operate up
on Mr Clay and his friends to do this, it was
necessary to convince Gen. Jackson of what
he himself believed, which was that the state
ment of Mr M.irklcy was true That Mr.
Adams' friends had tendered the Department
of State to Mr. Clay that the West did no'
wish to stpaiate from the West, "id that the
declaration of Gen. Jackson, that he would
not asnoiut Mr. Adams to he Secretary of
State, would have a happy i ifliicuce on Mr
Clay and hisfiicnds. To convince Gen. Jack
son of this, it was necessary for Mr. Buchanan
to speak as from authority To suppose that
he did not so speak, is to believe that Gen.
Jackson would be operated upon by idle ru
mor, and implies that Mr B. himself was under
the same influence.
The object of Mr., Buchanan, in his late
statement, is, as far ns possible, to guard
against the inference that he would consent
to become a messenger, the bearer of a cor
rupt proposition, and hence the distinction,
without a difference, between his statement I
and that of Gen. Jackson, which has been !
seized upon by Mr. Clay and his partisans, as
an acquittal.
It will readily be seen, that Mr. Buchanan,
so far from acquitting Mr. Cla" from the
charge of bargain, expressly enforces it He,
in hi letter to tue editor of the Telegraph,
of the 16th of October last, at tlie same time
that he protests against having his name
brought before the public, saysi
" The facts are before the world, that Mr.
Clay and his particular friends made Mr. Ad
ams President, and that Mr. Adams, immedi
ately thereafter, made Mr. City Secretary of
State. The people Will draw their own in
ferences from such conduct, and from the
ciratmstuncei connected with it. They will
judge of the coupe from tlie effect "
Take this in connexion with the declaration
of Mr Markley, that as early as Dec 30th, Mr.
Adams' friends had tendered to Air Clay the
Department of State, and think what must be
Mr, Clay's situation when he can claim nnch a
letter as an acquittal? .
What are the circumstances reterreel to?
That this verv conversation forms an important
'ink. is obvious;, and that Mr Buchanan's let
ter of October, 1826, -was written for the pur
pose of prevail ing its being brought before
the public through the Telegraph, on his own
account, is too manilesl to need an argument.
He believed thrit at; Clay and Mr Adams
were guilty of the bargain, he saw in the fact
of, Mr; Clay's vote, and appointment with the
known circumstances, enough to convict them
before the public,, and he pratctted against
beinir called m s a witness. It is this which
Mr. Clay calls an acquittal! " '-r

T the Editor of tlie Mvocate.
Gsmtlxicx In reply toymr. written appli
cation for a statement of certain political sen
timents titteredby Mr Jefferson some'itnein
the year 1825,. 1 must first remark, that I do
not now consider myelf at liberty after your
request, to withhold it from your paper. My
opinion has ever been this, that in a free and
equal society, upon public matters ot such ex
treme importance, the public are entitled to
demand, through any 01 their organs ot com
municatiou, the sentimen s ot public charac
ters of long and high standing, ftom them
selves; and most assuredly o, after their de
cease, from persons to whom they have been
mvserveilly made known.
1 was induced to relate what I had heard,
the first lime ( did relale it, by some 1 liberal
expressions applied to General Jackson,
conduct which Would have been pvrliaps sulj
more revolting to my feeliri 1 in regard to
Mr. Adams,- tor both are lully worthy in mv
estimation of the high honor they receive
from their fellow Citizens at present; but the
former I have never yet seen.
The occasion of which you speak, when we
were all present at the reading of Gen, Jack-
sons reply to Mr. Clay, was, 1 candidly think
the second time f ever mentioned the fact in
question. I am very sure I did hear Mr Jef
ferson sav, and I think.it was about tbe last of
July or the first of August, 1825, but it might
have been in December, that t was lorttiiiale l
for the country that Gen. Jackson was likely
to bent lor public iitefotir years alter-, tor tn;
him seemed to bo the only nope left of avoid
ing the dangers manifestly abuut to arise but
of the broad construction now again given to
the Constitution of the United States, vhich
effaced all limitations .of powers, and left the
General Government, by theory, altogether
unrestrained. That.its.churacter was plainly
enough about to be totally -.lunged, and that
a revolution which had, been hitherto nidi
tmctly contemplated at a very great distance,
was now suddenly, and unexpectedly, brought
close to our view. ' Of Gen. Jackson, Mr. Jef
ferson often said, that he was an honest, sin
cere, firm, clear beaded and' strung minded
man: of the soundest political principles;
which he knew well, from having observed
his conduct while' a Senator of the United
States, when he wa Vice President himself.
He had no doubt, that if Gen. Jackson should
be brought into office to correct the alarming
tendency towards formidable, and otherwise
irremediable evil, beginning to develop itself
in the administration of the general .govern
ment, he Would be entirely faithful to that ob
ject. Thi -conversation took - place either
immediately auer me i,onvciiiiuu ui aiauuwu
of 1825, or in December following; and it was
the last free expression of his sentiments! e
ver heard: a calamitous change in the private
affairs of both having occurred shortly after,
which prevented my being much with mm, by
placing him through imperious eireumrtannes,
in a situation requiring him to be unfriendly to
my greatest interest. '.: J ;r- : i :i
, Having been an elector .myself in J824,
when Mr. Crawford's personal condition was
deemed so very doubtful, I know certainly
that Mr-.Jeffer.on did thenprefer Mr. Ad
Adams, after hiim Indeed, 1 never beard Mr.
Jefferson speak of Mr. Adam, from the year
1792, without acknowledging that he was an
able, teamed and honest mao, to which he
often added, before the period mentioned,
.that lf. Adams would make a safe Chief
Magistrate of tbe Union, and was the fit
of all the England meni Toward Mr,
Clay, a a politician, Mr. Jefferson constantly
manifested a yety Strang repugnance, and of
ten said that lie was merely a splendid orator,
without any valuable knowledge from experi
ence oraludv.oraoy determined public prin
ciple founded in ound political science, ci
ther practical or theoretical. , With this im
pression omiiy mind lleft Mr. Clay at Monti
cello, when I went to tbe Legislature, three
day before the soeeting of the electoral col
leges, in December, 1824. I bad heard some
little discussion between him and Mr. Jeffer

lhat hey stamp die allegation of Mr Buckner
win talseliothl.
'h.- letter which Mr. Buckner now makes
use nfin order to injure my character, rs well
ascertaineJ to be a forgery. It was first pub-
nsnea oy mnns, editor ot the Democratic
Pre, purportingto be a letter f ro .11 the unfor

or neara or oetore mis puoneation, and in
that be acknowledged himself o be guilty of
tne enormous enme charged against him,
and stated hi willingness to meet the just sen
tence of the court If Mr. Buckner was as
desirous to cull the truth from the archieves
of the nation, as he is to pluck from me- mv
hard earnel reputation, he would have seen
that Gen. Winchester, wlio commanded at
Mobile at the time that this Biiuu letter is
dated, made several communications to me
after that date, and before he had anv know!
e Ige that the battle of New Orleans had been
fought. Does not thi circumstance shw
the impossibility of Mr Harrs havine know!
edge at the time stated, and still more that
he could have gained it in time to have made
it a ground of application- for mercy? The
letters of Gen. Winchester to me show that
he did not receive intelligence of the victory
until the ITth January; this forged lettes gives
me intelligence to Mr.' Harris two days oe
fore. Strange indeed, that Mr. Harris, close
ly confined in jail, should be so much earlier
informed than ihe commandant of that post.
It would give .tie great pleasure to send you
printed copies from the documents, in my
possession, properly certified,, proving what
I have here asserted, but it is impossible that
this can be done within so short a period as
that requested I trust, however, that the
statement here made will be sufficient, with
all honourable men, to counteract the false
impressions sought to be forced upon the
freemen of Kentucky by Mr Buckner. -As
a public or private man, speaking of trans
actions which concern the reputation and
character of others, every manly feeling should
remind him, that he ought to be guided by
established facts, not by the heretay of a patv
ty: and wnen ne mus produces tacts, of tlie
least plausible groun 1 upon which to bottom
such charges as those of which you have
recited, I pledge myself to be at, all time
ready to meet him t the bar of his country.
11 mav oe proper 10 remain :n conclusion
that the finding of the court proves conclu
sively that those men w re legally in service
or, otherwise, that they must hare been-
acquitted. I approved of tbeir Condemna
tion, because they were the promoter and
ringleaders ofthe mutiny and desertion, com
mitted at a period, when the safety of our
Southern frontier-was threatened at a pe
nod, wmch called tor the most energetic
measures, and when, every nerve of the cov.
ernment was streehed in the .defence of our
liberties. When they violated the law in

Mr. Clay, when he stated in his Lex
itig'on limner apeecn, tnutnotnuig was
s.ud against him, pending his nomina
tion before the benute, was guilty til a
palpable and willul' misrepresentation.
He knew, that senator Uuakph, ot v.
Carolina, spoke agmii the nomination
ailed it 8 corrupt one, and comment
ed on the, appointment, as a matter ut
bar train.' These tacts were known and
spoken of in. Washington City after
the injunction ol secrecy was removed
yet Mr. Clay has had the boldness
to assert, iu. the face of the Western
people, that no objection teat maue xsi
hrs appointment as Secretary of State,
As this falsehood . was told, to sustain
one previously promulgatedthat a spe-
cuio. accusatiuu ; nan never uccu (iiauv .

We hae now before us another ii-
stance of the inu isuing character ol
Mr. Clay.'iorV. rather, of "one of his
friends; for he, "Oott man, Would scorn
to "dip his hands jnto dirty water. ; The
reader, has not forgotten . the appeal
made by Mr. Clay's friends in Kentuc
ky, to tW friends of Mr. 'Crawford
urging that gentleman to withdraw in
favor of Mr. Clayt. . The appeal, it
will be recollected, had po effect, fur
ther than to create a general belief, that
Mr, Clay, had placed his heart'j upon
the Presidential thaiir,i,and that tio;
incans would be, left untried to eifeu
his purpose. Finding hee would
not listen to his overtures, we next find
his agents trying their ..influence, with
the electors. On this' point, we have
the 'following t tatemeotironi the Hal -,
timore Republican,' edited, we believe,
by a Virginian, -who appears to under
stand what he is about: j , i ;
There I one fact connected with, the late
election, which we have never seen bublish-
ed, nd which aflord stronggrouiida for
inspecting tn purity ot that election, . We
have been informed, that at the time the -
lectoral college Of Virginia met f Richmond,
in! 1 824, Mr.r Trimble, the member of Con.
gress from Kentucky, whose preciou confes
sions we mentioned the Other day, appeared
there, and as wa uppocd at the time, as Mr.
Clay's agenC .'lle that, however as it may, he
was at Kichmond at tliht critical tune, and
persuading the electoral college to give (heir
votes for Way. He told that Crawford could
not be elected if he wo returned tothe
House, and that if ..Virginia gave her vote for
mm, iiay would oe excluded from the House,
"In which event. I said Mr. Trimble 1 w shall
have to Vote for Jackson( for before 1 left
Kentucky, there ws a talk about the L
gisUture'a instructing u 10 that effect.??
Some of the member of the oolh ge remon-
nraiea wun Mr. irimble upon the absurdity
of obeying such instruction, and entered into
some argument to show that they would not
be bound by them.! Right tr"K; (said Mr.
I rirauie,) tft? tfa.it Item, w thalt obey tkem.

delegation as MrOu could control, dtd din.
