As rust and decay rapidly consume the ma. chine that is not kept in use, so disease and sickness accumulate on the . frame of indolence, until existence becomes a bur. den, and the grave a bed of rest - Industry is the friend virtue ; and indolence the hand. maid of vice. The active are seldom cri minal ; but the most of those who yield' to guilty enticements, might trac? their Inpse irom rectitude to habits of idleness, which leaving the heart vacant, gave full oppor tunityfor the evil passion ands desires of our nature to exert the power.

Edward Laving, ston Socrvnry of State when he was a de faulter, and knowing him to be one, I feel that 1 am justified in declaring the charge to be false. It Is known to all tho country that the nominations made bv the Prcu. dent to the Senate are referred ' to appro. priate committees of that body',' whose du. ty it is to inquire into the character of the nominees, and that if there is any evi. denne of defuult, or any disqualifying cir. cumstauce existing agnliist tlirm, a reiec. ai .1 s .r uon oj me nominee follows.

But his corurmation bv tlie Senate (conclusive proof that no such, object ion, II made, was sustained, and 1 am, satisfied that such a charge against him culd not IwvetHtodiSitbstanuatcd. - .- I am also Informed that Mr. ClaV charg. ed roe with appointing Samuel Swartwout collector of the port of- New York , kmw. ing that he had been an associate of Aaron Burr. "To this charge it is proper to say that I knew of Mr. Swartwout's connection with Aaron Burr precisely as I did thnt of Mr. Clay himself, who, if tho history of tlie times did not do him great . Injustice, was far from avoiding an association with Burr when he was at thejown of Lexington, in Kentucky. Yet Mr. Clay was appointed Secretary of State, and I may say confi. dently with recommendations for cliaracter moan fnvaw produced to me by the citizens of Now York, in behalf of Samuel Swartwout. Mr, Clay too. at the time of his own appoint. mcnt to that high office, it will be recollects ed, was directly charged throughout the Union with having bargained for it, and by none was this charge more earnestly made than by his present associates in Ten. nessee, Mr. Bell and Mr. Foster. Under such circumstances, how contempti ble does this demagogies appear when he descends from his Mgh place in the Senate, and -roams over tlie country retailing slan ders against the living npd the dead. V. . ANDREW JACKSON. Hermitage, Aug. 18, 1840. - . - TO THE PUBLIC. : Your surprise, am quite sure, will be as great as mine was, on the perusal of a note, signed Andrew Jackson," addressed to the editor of the Nashville Union jT and bearing dnte on the 18th instant. The circumstances of my presenrvisit to Nashville are well known here. " I declin ed repeated invitations to attend the Con. vention holdcn Qh the 17th inst., and fiml. ly yielded to an unusual appeal, with which I was honored, and which it would be diffi cult for any mm to resist. I was called on to address tho "Conven. tion. In wlint terms of respect, apd, for his military scrvicesrof pmiserl spokeof the distinguished individual who is the oc casion of this note, all who heard me can testify. Among the subjects which I dis cussed was that of the degeneracy of public virtue, and especially the delinqueney'nnd ifidelity in public Ttfhccrs, of which within the last few years we have had such lament able proof. In Bssigningcanses foFlhis deplorable state of things, I stated, ns among them, the subversion of the rule laid down by Mr. JeffeinfjnoJr)npX. ty, and fidelity to the Constitution,, and the substitution for it of one founded on devo tion and subserviency not to the country, but to the chief of a pirty : tho nersons np. pointed to office, too often considered them. selves as being only .put injossession of tneir legitimate jwiare-orxne spoiis-or Ticto: rv, instead of feeling bound bv the obli gations of a snc.red trust confided 1 for the benefit opthc People. In . respecti- to- the defaulters, I referred to the case of Mr. Livingston, ot wnosc attainments as a' pi. rist , not more consistent with truth than my feelings, I spoke in the,; hight terms. He was one of the earliest and one of the greatest defaulters. His case occurred under Mr. Jefferson s adminstrntion. Tlie records both of the Executive sod Judicial Departments established his default lie remained a defaulter about a quarter of a. century, if not more. How he finnllv ' li quidated the balance against him, andwheru I do not certainly know? but I bHieveiMbWid. A mercenary legion of one him- was by property, and under the first term oC Gen. ' Jackson. But whenever . and however it ; was, a tardy payment or com position of the debt could not, and did not, expunge the fact of bis onginnl default in arguing irom cause io etieet, I con tended that the appointment of Mr Living. ston was a pernicious precedent; that it was a virtuarproclamation to all who wore or might be defaulters, that their infidelity in a public trust constituted no insuperable 4 bar'0'.0 pmrnotronrto one of the highest otnecs in the Uovernment. I did not at tribute to Gen. Jackson a knowledge of the default. I went even so far as to say that he might not have reflected upon the con. sequences of the appointment of an indi. vidual so situated. I must how say that, until Gen. Jackson otherwise asserts, I am constrained to believe that he could not have been ignorant of a fact so conspicuous in the annals of our country as tha of the de fault of Edward Livingston, Esq. .as Attor- ney of the Uniu d States, in tlie District of New York, during the administration of Mr. Jettcrson, to the amount of about 9100,. It was in the train of the same thought and argument that I added theappointment of Mr. S. Swartwout to the office of Coflcc tor of the most important port in the United States, as one of the most unfortunate and injurious examples. Ilia participation in the schemes of Cel. Burr was a fact of such no toriety that I supposed and yet suppose, that no man the bast conversant with tne history of the country could be ignorant of it. liut it was not upon Gen. Jackson s knowledge of the fact, it was upon the fact tueij mat i aweit. , It is now said that the appointment of Mr. ewartwout was recommended by citi zens of New York. I know nothing of these ; recommendations. Whether, they were cause or effect; whether they were . . 1 . guiwu up to proauce or give color and co ver to tlie appointment, previously determin. ed to be made, their secret history only couiu uisciose. i ne appointment occa. stoned general surprise among the friends and foes of the Administation at the time, and tho sequel demonstrates how unwise it wns. These topics of my address, to the Con vention on Monday last, have boon selected byXren. Jackson for comment and nnimad Version. " He was not present on the occa sion, tie nns maae no application to me for a correct account of what I actually said ; but litis been contented to rely upon "being informed, by whom, with what motives, and with what objects, I hnvo no means of conjecturing. Whether his in former may not be some5 friend of Mr. Van Buren, who, in tho present desperate suite ol Ills political - fortunes, wishes to flie niTd and turn the tide of just indignation on the part of the people frointhc : General 's protegcthe exhibition of bis name only .would enable thrr public to decide. " With regard to the insinuations and gross epithets contained in Gen. Jackson's note, alike impotent, malevolent, and de. rogatory from the dignity of a man who has filled the highest office in the Universe, respect for the public and for myself allow me. only to say that, like other simlar mis- siles, they have fallen harmless at mv feet. exciting no other sensation than that of scorn and contempt 11. CLAY Nashville, Aug; SO, 1840. m T the Whigs and Conservatives ( t of tlie Visited States. ExECUTrvE Committee Room, ? Washington August 25, 1840. Tlie splendid election results just an. nounced from the States of North Carlina, Kentucky and Indiana, gladden the - heart of the patriot, and stimulate him to grea ter efforts in the service of his country. ' In these States.'the enemies of the Constitu. tion and of the prosperity of the Republic are annihilated. Tlie Destructives are panic stricken : turn wliich way they may, their nfTrrghted vision is startled with the 'hand writing on the wall.' In A'nbnmn, they have barely. escaped defeat. Missouri is "coming to the rescue." With forced but feeble shiuits, they exult over Illinois, and rejoice that they have been able to hold their own. Since the nomination of. Gen Harrison, the States or Connecticut, Rhode Island, Virginia, Louisiana, and North- Ciriolria, all of which voted 'for Martin Van Buren in 1836, have proclaimed in no equivocal Inngunge, their allegicnce to tlie Country and its Constitution.
