From the Richmond Times. If r- '

, The hangers on upon the administration are
assailing Major Lewis, through letters .from the
capital J T One of these assailants has- drawn the
Major out in self-defence, and he accompanies
his defence with another extract of alejtterfrom
Gen. Jackson. This letter relates to the organ,
and is, the Gfenerars own, every, word of it.
We. give the defence, and this instructive and
curious letter, in anther column, as a Ipart of
the history of the times, and in vite the jreader8
attebtion to them. ' The Major promises'to prove
a troublesome customer " to the administra
tion. ,i rd-l -s5v-.;J-l-":-..--. . ,.: :'r?C s- -- -
The history of the removal of Major Lewis
is not at all creditable to Mr. Polk, j In the
first placed it evinced ingratitude to G eriJ Jack
son wlo was known by Mr. Polk to beia warm
friend of Maj. Lewis, as proved by the! attempt
to justify the act, and put the (General (against
the Major, by sending the long .'list of griev
ances" to a friend, to.be shown to (CJcrt. Jack.
sox. The disregard of the General's feelings
is rendered the more flagrant by the fact that
the Major was removed before this list; could
reach General J. Well might the General sayl
in nis letter to Major L.. M My dear Jjklajor, I
,regret your removal, as weir as the manuer of
it. I did suppose that the magnanimity of Cel.
Polk would prevent him from the removal of
any officer without giving him notico thereof."
It will be remembered, moreover, that a reason
for the removal of Major L. reflected upon his
honor and fidelity to his country. Th LMajor
very properly said in Ins letter to Mr. Pblk that
he had a right to take away his office, 'but not
hirreputation. , The letterln which this remark
was made contained a respectful call upon the
President for the specifications and charges
made against Maj. JL." Mr. Polk promised to
answer, but never did, notwithstanding iMr. L.
reminded him t wice afterwards of this promise.
This would have hardly vindicated thej Presi
dent's magnanimity in the 'eyes ' of the) Old
Hero." Mr. Polk had the power to remove
Maj. Lewis he might hae done this without
a why or wherefore ; but as he had coame for
ward voluntarily as his accuser, he was: bound
by every consideration, to have sustained the
accusations or to have withdrawn them.! i
The extract from the letter of Gen. Jackson
now presented is curious indeed, and will throw
some light on the history of the reorganization
of the official 'organ at Washington. There
never was a plainer case, made out, than that
the President, by his will and preference, caus
ed the Globe and its editors to be supplanted
by the Union and its editors, as the organ, the
spokesman and defenderof the Administration.
Never in the history of this country, before the
Jackson era, was there a Government! organ
established on such grounds. Gen. Jackson's
"Tron will " established the " Globe," and Mr.
PolkV4. hickory," or some other sort 4f jwill,
set aside the Globe and created the "Union."
The same will may set aside the Union. Then
according to tho Democratic practice, the pov.
ernment organ is completely under subjection
to the will of the President ; and what degree
of independence can be enjoyed by a press so
situated ? Its conductors may seem to be fre?
to speak and to act for themselves ; but the will
which gave them their positions, and which can
supplant them, imperceptibly and inevitably
throws its trammels around them, and must in
spire distrust in the public mind. In supersed
ing the Globe, Mr. Polk only followed tin the
footsteps of Gen. Jackson. He alone offended
in supplanting the General's favorites : there
fore he was sorely vexed." The coiitrbl -of
the press he had exercised it was a part of his
system' In control every thing about hirp ; but
the mistake of Mr. Polk in discarding Mr. Blair,
' who had more popularity with Dernjocratic
membdrs of Congressandj he Demoracy of the
United States, than any editor -jn themj"4 of
fended and vexed him. How true tajus char
acer, too, are his suggestions to Blair.
' anxious for his friends,
" he advises Blair, if
he sells to have the cash," or good security,
strengthening the admonition by addingi, " se
curitfthat is known and vouched fW to be
gbodj'l! liut whojis " the rene
gade politician," whose politics or prorrjoise to
pay neither are to be trusted ? Who islhe ?
These j reft" rences must lead to further (disclo
sures and we will enter into no speculations
upon them. - j J
Judging from the developments already made,
had the General lived a few months lopgfr, a
considerable storm would have been raised a
bout the administration. In the language o" the
Nashvlle"Banner," " What is to be the jfortunc
of the administration of a man, who, elected
principally, through the friendship and support
or,Anarew Jackson, had become in a little more
than two months the subject of such remarks
as taref contained in the extract given from a
letter written by him ?" !

Gen. Jackson and the tribute to his mem
ory. The Procession in New York. Now;
that the Public here have paid their tri
bute to the memory of Gen. Jackson, (in
which we liave joined nay, all have join
ed) we feel itjto be a duty (no matter how
unpleasant, but one imperative upon us
to perform) to protest, and earnestly to
protest, ; against that part of his history
which has left the elements of a' revolu
tion in the constitution of his country, and
mischievous and alarming traces, that are
indeliblyengraved upon our Government
for all time to come. The violence of
Gen. Jackson's character may be forgiven
and forgotten amid the plaudits we owe
him for the gallant defence of New Or
leans. His war upon the currency, the
bankrupcies he caused, State and individ
ual, the ruin he brought upon thousands by
his exprijiient. with banks and with hard
money, the pernicious examples he has
left behind: him, his high use of the Exe
cutive prerogative, and his bold assump-
lions oi power, win prooaDiy oe got over;
but there is that in his administration
which never will be forgotten, never got
over, never eradicated which is impress
ed upon the government, may upon the
constitution, and which will live as long as
the Republic lives, and in the end be its
death we mean the fatal legacy of Pro
scription! Amid these funeral processions
jhen, that We have as a part ol that vast
number that lined the streets of this city
yesterday, and swelled the long drawn
out procession amid muffled drum, and
bier, and pall, and urn we feel called
upon to say wth all the power we can
say it, Gen. Jackson is the first man that
corrupter! and poisoned the constitution of
his country, and sowed the seeds of disso
lution within it. While we thank him for
being a gallant soldier, we can only thank
him as the Roman patriot thanks J3aesar,
or the Frenchman, Napoleon. The Ame
rican hero is but a common hero of his
class with promptitude, energy and va
lor, but ; without self-sacrifice, inflamed
with the vulgar love of power, and forget
ful that he had a country as well as him-
LselfjatidTtyto serve. Washington
alone, of the heroes" whose history, we
. have.did justice, loved mercy, and thought
r . ft:jf
more of htS country than of himself or his
party. Geni Jackson continued an ultra
partizan to the day of his death. He is rep
resented 'by the letter writers from the
Hermitage as breathing of war and blood
shed almost with his last breath, (see his
reported remarks upon the Oregon ques
tion.) He died forgetting there were such
j human beings as Whigs to be thought of
or cared for by his country, and full of
personal j animosity toward his political
opponents to the last. Others then may
applaud all he has done but we cannot.
We feel for his'memory as we feel for the
memory of a' Napoleon, but we cannot
feel that he was a Christian, or that his
example Was any thing but pernicious to
his country. ; We thank him for the blood
he has caused to be shed in our defence,
and we bury him with the honors of the
military, but we have no civic laurel for
; The legacy of iPaoscRirrioN for opinion's
sake which Geo; Jackson has left to his
country, will, in, the end, destroy this Re
public. Hi legacy we call it, because

Jackson first began to act upon these prin
ciple's, and he was the first man who .in
stituted the practice of making his coun
try and its offices a spoil, for which citir

patronage of this vast country to the high
est bidders, as Rome vas held up by the
PitEtbnan Guard to him who had the most
to give for the Imperial purple. What
Gen. Jackson then established lias now,,:
become cuiomiiayt a species of, com
mon Jaw, as binding as if written; in- the
constitution ; and hence, when a, Chief
Magistrate is toJe elected, the greatques
t ioii with thousands is, not who is the best
maD, or who has the best principles but
who is likeliest to succeed and thereby
give us the spoils. The country in thdr
estimation is for sale once in four years.
Gen. Jackson has established the princi
pled - - ' ' J
It is now replied, however, to all such
just remarks as these, the Whigs in this
respect are just as bad as the Democrats.''
But that would not excuse Gen? Jackson
for the legacy left behind him. v There it
is, and whether followed by Whig or De
mocrat, it is just as pernicious to the conn
try. His violence and his passions revo
lutionized the country in this respect, and
his popularity sanctioned the quasi Jrc vo
lution. It is not true, however, that the
Whigs are as culpable as the Democrats
so called. The Whigs were stripped of
all offices by Gen. Jackson. They were
hunted down by him as if they had no
rights in the Government, nor privileges
under it. When they came into power,
they necessarily protected themselves, and
began the restoration of equity in theTair
distribution of place and power. Perhaps
in too many instances, as was natural for
human nature under the long proscrip
tions they had suffered, they took more
than their fair shareof the offices of Gov
ernment. So much the more is Gen. Jack
son to be condemned for so administering
the Government as to create in the bo
soms of a large portion of his fellow citi
zens this spirit of revenge. Nay, the leg
acy of Gen. Jackson has become so fatal,
that in order to have success or good prin
ciples now, it scems almost necessary to
act upon his own rule, as in war it is of
ten necessary to make reprisals, or to burn

holders and the office seekers has become
so strong, from the bad examples of Gen.
Jackson, that good principles cannot with
impunity neglect them. The Whigs, there
fore, who abhor the example, are forced
into its adoption by self-preservation. To
resist office holdersin power, it becomes
necessary to appeal to office seekers but
of power. This converts the government
itself info a spoil. This makes a Presi
dential election little-better than a raffle.
Such is the result of the fatal legacy Gen.'
Jackson left us, and which, all thinking
men see, has sown the seeds of dissolu-

UN6 Compromise? but at Ae Cannon's
mouth" This expression of General Jack-'
son in regard to the' Oregon question,' a
mong the last vybrds ottered upon his dy-
ing, bed, does not; seern in. harmony with -a
truly christian spirit the) character of
an humble fol lower of thePrince of Peace.
It certainly could not ha ve arise rr froirrs
any precept or exampl of him whbwhenv ,
suffering.under the cruel hands of his per-
secutors and murferers saiti father 'for. $
give" them" No Compromise but at the
Cannon's mouth." St range words from ti
dying christian !- I have.no wish to call
in question tho virtues, of-General, Jack
son ; he has gone to his f account, to that
tribunal before whichwe must all appear
an.d abide that jodmcotfromyhic
wilt be'rio appeal, ut have we not reason
to fear the tendency of such a"sentimchf?:
no Compromise - but "at-the Cannon's
mouth," 'coming jfroni one who has exert- -ed
such a powerful influence throughout
the length and breadth of the land, i and
whose character isdow unqualifiedly lau-
ded as all that was reat and good, a fol- -1
lower of the meek and lowly Jesus ?, ; .
N6 iComprxnntic-Jbug -mouth."
Gen. Jackson may have been a
Christian; but surely this is hot a chnstian
expression and it becomes e"very gobi ,
man, every well wisher,fbf his country, '.
every lover of his rrtce to disavow such a
sentiment whether it comefroln the -lips-of
Andrew Jackson or any other rnan. f
We took-occasion toj-efer to thisdcath-:
bed declaration of jGcncrat Jackson at tho; '
time we first heard of its utterance. The?
sentiment is so obviously unchristian and
inhuman, that it carries, conviction to the'
minds of i every humane man that if is
wrong JWe have not yet seen the first
defence ofjt, nor shall we, from any matv
that is loyal to his . country or just and ce-
rierous to his fellowmenThcsen
however, is, asbur cdfrespondetU says .
from the high source from whichlrcame,1
one calculatedto do great mischief, ; and'
ought therefore to .be remembered and
censured. A military mind is hot always:,
the best constituted to seej things, justly r
and the blast of war is much more rhusi-j
cal to the soldier's cars, than the softerj
tones of peace. General Jackson, of alC
our public men. wa thb; most arbitrary ,
and tyrannical. He" was arbitrary as "a '
soldier tyrannical as a civilian, 'and re-1
vengeful as a man. He had passed that-:
time of life which was calculated to -pro'
duce the strongest impress"onsupoh; hi3
character, in the camp, and the influence -of
. a predominant self-will never forsook
him to the day of his death. Hls coUnsel,;
therefore, living, dying or dead,'a one in ,
authority, or out of authority, at iWash
ington or at the Hermitage, was the Very
last that should influence his countrymen' " I
upon questions involving either peace or f
war. His prejudices were sb grealngainst '
General Washington'sidministration thats
he had the boldness to yotc asonejof -ay'j
very small minority, against an approval s
ofHhe military and civil administration iof,
the'Father of his Country. I While ;ye re--.
spect "his independence "of character, for
tliis, we cannot but condemn his judgment,
or help thinking that ljis vote was prbnip-' j
ted more by the love of a displabfper-,
sonal indopendence-than from any cbnic-
tions of his own that General Washington
was really unworthy of the thanks of Con-J 7
gress and the country. .. It is a 'basciban
donment of reasoirto resign our right of.
thought, and we. shall take the liberty -to
speak asplainly of General Jackson's acts,
as He spokepf those bflGeneral Washing-
ton, dr as ;hisfiends peak of old? John: , j,

discuss his assumption of powerr military

that the prediction of the now official rd-r-itor
