Those who recollect the proati-jo thro'
which Mr. Jefferson patd o the Pi'wi
dency, and the angry dMiunnitioos that
followed hia induction into oai.e, must
observe the striking parslled-ia the elect
tion of Gen. Jackson, and the vindic
tive feelings that mark his ad erstrie up
to this time. Throughout an inflamma
tory electioneering campaign, Mr. Jeffer
son was assailed with the intolerant out
pourings of a prostituted and licentious
press so was Gen Jackson. Mr, Jcf

the perple so wasJjlen.,. Jackson. Mr.

remnants of primogeniture, looked with
disdain upon the plebeian pretensions of
mr. Jetlerson no did it toward Geo.
Jackson. But Mr. Jefferson was I favor
ite with those who constitute the only
legitimate source of power the people ;
and they placed him is their chosen sen
tinel on tbe great watch-tower of. liberty.
The same power have done the same
thing with Gen.- Jackson. The sequel
proved that there .was wisdom in the
choice that was made of Mr. Jefferson;
and an auspicioua probation is likely to
