Mr. Randolph had a large boxvfull of ibooks
with him which he was taking to England ti
get bound. ! I asked him why he had not seni
them to Philadelphia or NeW-York Tor that pur
pose. 1 "What, sir," said he, 'patroniza. our
Yankee task masters who have, imposed such a
duty upon foreign books! never, sir, never! I
will neither wear what, they make, nor eat what
they raise, so long as my purs, can set! supplies
Mrom old England, and until I can have my books
properly bound holith of ."Mason and . Dixon's

On Sundays hfe used to r-ad for ns a chapter
in the Bible or partof the Church service and
;0iice he made: an extemperanf4RW Dravcr: and
he never would permit any reflections to be .cast
u pon religion withcnitia vey pointed' rebuke.
Ho told me that tor many years he had ibeen
corrupted by ; the infidelity which prevailed
amongst many of the leading politicians at
W ashington: bat that in the year 1816, during a
9evere fit of illness, he had a remarkable vision.
which completely dispelled the delusions under
which he had surrendered his faith; and S tha
since then! he had been a firm believer in Chris
tianity. 11 shewed me a letter which he
wrote immediately after this illness addressed to
a bosom friend in Virginia, in which lie gave a
circumstantial detail orhis "conversion?' as he
always termed it, and he even gave thowords
which were; uttered in his ears by his invisible
monitor during the vision. "This letter,'" said
he to me, contains notbing but the truth,strange

jasitmay appar vo you,anu u wouia male me

this subject, hctuld me that the late Air" Pink
tiey, ofBaltmlre, had asshred him, just previous
to his deaih j uf his unshaken belief in the truths
)f Christianity,- Of Mr. Jefferson, however, he
rave a vefy different account; which I can now
readily belieye after having read his letters, al

was too strongly prejudiced against him. f -
THE HARTFORD CONVENTION.
fit h announced that Theodore ' D wight,' Esq.
;he Editor ofiha" New York Daily Advertiser, is
jreparing; for publicationa history of thecee
lings of the Hartford Convention, of which ody
le was Secretary. Wo aro glad to .hear it
Sucli a work has been S wanting. When it ap
)earsKwe ri3k nothing in saying that it; will be
ilearly demonstrated that the grounds, assumed
y that celebrated body are identical with the
mnciples now avowed by theNullifiersjand Se-
oeders. ' This fact, indeed, is proved . by the .bl
owing extract from the Report of that Con v en- i
' ion, for which we are indebted to the Char
lottesville Chronicle : t , y
" That acts of Congress inT. violatinn, of the
institution, amabsolntely;To!d, is an Hiorienia
ole position , ll loes nut, however, consist with
1 he respect and forbearance doe from a eoiifedr
i.te State towards the genexal good to fly to opeh
iesistancO upon, every infraction of. the Constitu
lioh. Themode and energy of. the opposition
should always conform to the nature of thel vio
lation, th intention of its authors, the extent ot
the injnry inll.eted, the intention manifested io
persist in it, and the danger -of delay, -. But in
cases of dangt --wus and palpable, infractions of
the Constituiioti affacting tbe Sovereignty of
ie .aSaie an4 the liberties of the people, it s hot
ijnly the righi,oVthe duty of such a State to
intemj'tanWieriy for -their protection in the
'manner best? calculated to secure' that end.
Vhen emergencies occur which are beyond the
reaenV of ;the Judicial tribunals, or too pressing to
admrtof the delay inoldent to their terms,. States
which bave cJmnio umpire, must be their
OWn jiiand iuectiU-4ketroten decisions.
U will ths 6e preperibr thaseveral Sutes Jo a
wait the jultimate disposal of" the obnoxious . inea-

siures shall finally assume, as effectually ! to J prtA
