On the 21st January, 1818, General Jackson issued or-
ders to Colonel A. P. Hayne, Inspector General, to repair
to Fayetteville on the 31st, and there muster and receive
nto the service of the United States, for six months, if
not sooner discharged, two regiments of mounted volun-

General Jackson klnewv their disposition and patriotism,
and, as he observed in his letter of the 19th January,
1818, bad circumstances permitted, and time would have
allowed, and the emergency doemanlded an appeal to the
whole state he had noi doubt but five thousand men could
have been raised. From what has been said on this
subject, it evidently follows, that General Jackson did not
raise an army of his own.
The next point is, how were these volunteers officer-
ed? TheI.constitution of Tennessee was made in Feb-
ruary, 1796. It provides that the militia shall elect all
officers under the grade of general, officers; that the
field officers shall elect their brigadier generals, and that
the brigadier generals and field officers shall elect their
major generals. Hence, it follows, that the militia of
Tennessee, when on military duty, are under command
of officers of their own choice. General Jackson, in his
circular to the militia officers, tells them that the grade
ot teir office-s to Ibe determined by themselves or ti
platoon officers ofsthe regiment, and tce officers raising
companies to, command them. When these brave men
nmet him at Nashville on tlhe 19th of Januarv, and request-
ed him to appoint tlhe officers, he promptflv refused, anod
replied, "agree among" yourselve's as to your officers."
He stated he would appoint colonel Hayne to lead them
to Fort Scott. The officers then agreed that colonel R.

were then "agreed on by the meeting". The general sta t-
ed to them tlhe number of officers on the peace establish-
ment ; the officers replied, that by experience they had
,found that horsemen required more officers thau foot-
men. He then said to them ," organize yourselves in a
way you think proper : it will rest w'ith tlhe Government."
This, then, said Mr. R. appears to be the state of the
ease relative to these volunteer officers;: that they, being'
officers of the militia, did agree upon and determine their
respective commands in that brigade of volunteers. The
letter of colonel Ilayue, dated near Favetteville, 9th
February, 1818, to the Secretary at War, ffurther eluei-
d '" tn sj"ct ot oe officer in that brigade of
volunteers was commissioned by General Jackson'.
The Secretary at War, .in his letter of the 8th of Feb-
ruary, 1818, to Genera| Jackson, acquaints him \ ith the
entire approbation of the Pros dent, of all the measures
which he had adopted to termnulnae the war with thle hI-
dians ; and then states,", the honor of our armv, as well as
th~e interest of our country, require that it houkd be ter-
minatted .as speedily as ipracticable ; and the confidence


reposed in yiour skdt aid -ptromptitude, asures ts that
peace will be restored oil such conditions, as wil l make
it honorable and permanent." These words convey, in
the strongest language, ideas of the most powerful effect
on the human mind. The same ideas are conveyed, al-
though not in such explicit and strong terms, in the letter
of the 26th December, 1817. These words contain a
conmnand to General Jackson to terminate the war, ani
his skit) and promptitude are relied on. These words a
contain an appeal to him for the honor of our army, of
which he then was, and now .s, an officer of the higiieqt
grade. They contain an appeal to him as a patrio for
the interest of our country. He was commanded to tir-

COMMON CATIONS.

F o Ti. NATIONALL. Ia'rLLTII.NCY 1.
PLAIN ENGLISH.
It is with considerable regret, I see our public
papers copying the language of the London Cou-
rier, and other organs of ministerial opinions in
England, and calling the exertions of the people
of Europe, as well as Great Britain, for their
rights and their bread, sedition, conspiracy-any
thing, to deceive those who judge by names. Let
us see what the state of the question is in
reality.
When the potentates of Germany, Russia, sc.
had the fear of Napoleon before their eyes, and
when their crowns were nodding on their heads
ready to fall, the Emperor, the Kings, and the
Electors of the various Circles, called upon the
people at large, not to defend the liberties they
actually possessed, but those they meant to be-
stow upon them, in: order to make them worth
fighting for. They promised them a free press,
a representative government, and other trifling
tlhings, of which the people have learned of us to
be exceedingly fond. Lured by these pron.ises,
the people, the landiwehr, rose; and, let the puf-
fers of Weliington and Blicher say what they
will, it was the people of the north of Europe that
put down Napoleon. Things being now pretty
well settled, the people at fir.'t modestly request,
and, after repeated evasions, demand the per-
formance of these promises. But the fear of Na..
poleon is no longer before their eyes-the eagle
is chained to a rock in the sea-he no longer
threatens the carrion cro'Wvs that caw about the rot-
ten carcase of tyranny. As might be expected,
these potentates, who, in this enlightened age,
don't wait for a dispensation from the Pope, to
break their promises, not only refuse to comply
with their "sacred words," but actually prosecute
cetjliin printers, and burn certain books, which
have the unparalleled impudence treasonably to
insist upon their keeping their promises. The
r.eople,'whoserved these shuflingLord's anointed,
consider this prosecuting of printers and burning
of books anaggravation of the case, and begin to
udlk aboit liberty and other impious" things,
as a certain great personage calls them. Upon
this, the potentates aforesaid r;us' an additional
army to |rotetC.(" the country, as 'the Courier
calls it, and saddle the people with the, additional.
cost of maintaining it; which is but just, since.
every ass ought to buy iis own I...LlI Then
they decree that those foolish potentates who have
weakly complied with their promises, and given
a representative government to their people,
shall take it back again, as it is setting a bad ex-
ample to their neighbors. Then they conjure up
conspiracies against kings and religion, one and
the same thing, of course, an:d, under these and
the like pretexts, dkeprixe the whoie people of the
little liberty even of dr king cofle and smoking
tobacco. To conclulCe, those who have not a
single black skive among then, set them all free
and. prohibit the save trade, having no use for
any imiiportations, because they possess slaves
enough ut home. Thus stands the case. Ihe
Courier, however, calls these people seditious,"'
and their.'ermonstrames i ,picty.",
Lct us sea how stands the case With the people
of England and thcir rulers. While the former
had enough to. eat, th:y contented themselves
with petitioning for a reform in Parliament. They
had some how or other found out, that they were
much more arbitrarily governed under parlia-
mnentary corruption, than they ever were- under
the abuses of kinglyj prerogalive. In searching
for the cause of this phenomenon, they discover-
ed, or fancied they discovered it, in the inequali-
ty cf representation, under the operation of which
'an old cobler* returned two members of Parlia-
nient, and a city, of 100,000 inhabitants, not one.
It was naturally supposed, that these representa-
tives of the cobli', bicrig in a great degree inile
pendent of the will of the people at large, would
be more apt to consult thtir own interests than
those of tle. people, and sell their own votes in
thie .iut-:, after having bought the votes of others
out of doors. Indeed, such a member might
plead, in his justification, that he represented the
bribed electors best, by himself taking bribes.
So believing, the people petitioned, time after
tieri, for-a reform in Parliament; but without ef-
feet. Now, the right of the subject of Englatnd
to petition the sov.'erig!!, is a right standing like
the comi0ion law of. England, on the irninutable
b-asis of imiut;,m':ial usage. ILis moreover ad-.
mitted in conti';ual practice down to.the present
tiue., cxce t in a particilac instance, where its
denial was one of the greia causes of'a revolution.
It seems, however, that there is no exp press men
tion made of the right of carrying flags and walk
ing-stick.a to these meetingss for petitioning, and
consequently th',y have lately come to be consi-
dered, to use the language ofa certain gi eat per-
soi:.ge, as imnlious.'"
Of late, in consequence of this new construc-
tion of the right of ,etitioning, troops of horse
have been let loose at women and children, upon
.whose bare and lamtished bodies the -'rints of
hoofs have lately been seen engraved in blood.
The baiting of bulis, the whipping of neI.roes,
are held to be veri'y inhn;:,.n in that country ; but
it has lately been found cono(brnab!e to the pur-
est standiurd ofi hui'nity to ride over women and
children. What riglit ha'evoomncn a d children
to pelition he ILord's anointed., though they be
starving to death ? I soy, stari-g-tho;gh cer-
tain great prseions, who spend a hundred or two
hn'udIrcd thousand a year:, call it secdition and im-
piety.
SAppireh':sive, however, tha.it'thi new mode
of amusing his majesty's ministers, by riding
over women and children, might not be held such
princely sport abroad, they called these poor half
starved women and children Seditious-and our
republican presses echo the word. T'h y cr'y out'
for bread', and they receive a horse's hoof into
their bare, skinny, and shrivelled bosoms. In a
2ttle time it does appear, that some people, and,
what is worse, some people of noi.e-such as
Lords Fitzwilliam, Grosvenor, Thanet, Sir Firan-
cis Burdett, and others, who are neither impi-
ous or starvying-disapprove of the bloody ride
at \l. icl: :, An age of plots is always an age
.ef despotism. The tyrant takes refuge in the
fears of the -weak-minded, and slanders his people,


as an excuse tor oppressing them.
Accordingly, plots, pikes, drillings, Revo-
lutionary schools, and all the worn-out lumber of
the Stuart policy, is again brought out; and we
may shortly expect a au.e edition of the Rye
*. This was the case not many years ago, with the bo-
"mougih of Repstyw, and probaijy may bu a q still.


IIouse andi meal Tub it.i, .- .cid oit *'Kbh the
horrible attempt. of some invisible assassin, or
some second-hand Giy Fa'x. In the mean time,
plans are going.on to educate thd poor starving
children, and send the poor starving parents to
Church. Every thipg is thought of to cheat the
world into an opinion of the benevolence and
piety of a government whose soldiers ride over
defenceless, .i..r i _a.-, carving women and chil-
dren, and are ju .titi .' by their rulers; while her
statesmen are slandering the nation with Sedition
and Impiety, because, when they asked for bread
and received a stone, they did not toss up their
caps, and cry God saie the King." Such a
state of things, 1 fear, will last for some .time, and,
grow worse and worse.; until an age of despot-
ism is, as usual, followed by a long period of re-
ligious and political freedom. In the mean time,
let not our republican papers lend themselves
thus indirectly to the views .of the oppressor, by
Echoing the slanders of-sedition and impiety, be-
stowed so liberally upon the most suffering and
unfortunate nation now in existence.
Dec. 30. PLAIN ENGLISH.


TO THE EDITORS.

In your paper of the 9th clt. there is an arti-
c!e, extracted from the Petersburg Intelligencer,
headed The Edinburgh Professorship," on
which I shall offer a few remarks. They would
have been communicated to you sooner, but I
wished to procure a certain document necessary
to the full developementof the subject. It is,
indeed, of very little consequence to us, on this
side of the Atlantic, by whom the chair of Na-
tural Philosopy in the University of Edinburgh is
filled. And, had the article referred to contained
only a statement of facts, and inferences from
them, it should have passed unnoticed, at least
by me. But the author's information has been
incorrect, and the triumph of which he spcaksl
exists only in idea.
That the election of a successor to Mr Play-
fair, so long and so justly celebrated, should have
excited a high degree of interest in Edinburgh, is
only what might have been expected. The re-
putation of its University is dear to that ancient
,metropolis, and, indeed, to Scotland at large;
and that reputation can be maintained only by a
succession of able Professors. When, therefore,
'the chair of Natural Philosophy became vacant,
it would have been strange had no anxiety been
manifested respecting the individual by whom
that station, confessedly so important, was to be
occupied. It is not quite so apparent, however,
how so much interest should have been excited
on this subj-ct among the intelligent part of the
British empire" beyond the limits of Scotland.
One reason, perhaps, might be found in the fol-
lowing sentence, were that sentence the expres-
sion of fact: This election called forth all the
strength of the ministry, combined with that of
the clergy, who were opposed to the opposition
party and the men of science in Scotland." In-
deed And so the opposition party and thc men
of science were able to baffle, completely to pa-
ralize, all the strength of the British ministry,
cornn bined with that of the Clergy-no contempt-
ible body, although it would seem that no men
of science enter into its composition But with
:the election of a Professor of Natural Philoso-
phy in .the University of Edinburgh the British
ministry have no concern. It is not one of the
Professorships of which the crown is patron. It
is under the patronage of the magistrates and
town council, who, for many years, have ranked,
not with the opposition to the government, but
with its most decided supporters. From this un-
tdeniable fact, the legitimate conclusion is, that a
*candidate recommended by the British ministry,
and such a candidate too as Dr..Chalmers, would
not have been recommended in vain,. Nor yet
have the clergy of the Church of Scotland, in ge-
neral, any concern with the election of a candi-
date to the chair of Natural Philosophy. The
only interference which the clergy can have in
such a case is confined to the minnisters of Edin-
burgh, who have a right, by the constitution of
the University, to given an opinion, an advice
(avisandumn is the tec-hnical term) to the patrons
when the office to be filled, like that of the Pro-
fessorship of Natural Philosophy, is under the pa-
tronage oft the magistrates and town council.
This right they exercised when David IIunm was
a candidate for the chair of Moral Philosophy:
and their unanimous advice was against thie eicc-
dion of that celebrated infidel; and he was not ap-
pointed. This right they also exercised, when
Mr. Leslie was a candidate for the Mathematical
chair But, in that instance, they were not unan-
imous. Strong opposition was made to Mr. Les
lie, not, I believe, because lihe was accused of
atheisltm,'" in consequence of having incurred
the enmity of the clergy,"' as the author of the
article already referred to assert:, but on the
ground that, in his Essay on Heat, he had pub-
lished sentiments which-, if not decidedly scepti-
cal, were at least sceptical in their tendency.
Mr. Leslie, however, explained his language,
and unfolded lhis views, so as completely to re-
move the impression of their infidelity from the
minds of some of time most distinguished of the
ciergy.. The opinion of the majority, therefore,
was in his favor, and his appointment ensued. Of
lhis elevation to the chair of Natural Philosophy,
I have nu data on which to rest a statement. But
I hazard nothing, in affirming, that if he had not
been supported by the majority of the ministers
of Edinburgh, he. would have lost his election.
The assertion, then, that Mr. Leslie had:incurred
Sthe enmity of the clergy," and, consequently,
their opposition to his election is unfounded ; for
mi his election he must have.been supported by
a majority even of the small number to whom the
right of interference belonged.
There is another misstatement-I do not say
that it is intended-contained in the following
sentence:'" The result of the election in favor
of Professor Leslie, who was opposed by Dr.
Chalmers, backed by all the church of Sea .lind,
and supported by the British ministry, may be
regarded as one of the proudest victories which
science and repuib'Iicanis-h ave within the last
years obtained.over king-craft and priest-craft."


Now, Dr,. C(hahlners was 'not opposed to M-Ir.
Leslie; he was not a candidate. My authority
is the first number of.i quarterly publication, en--
titled The Christian and Civil Economy df
Large Towns," issued by Dr. Chalmers himself.
In that work, he states that aa application had
been made to him to become a candidate, but
that lie had not acceded farther than merely to
give a promise 'that, if certain objects which he

we have had fiur times the amount of capital placing the banks of thiis District on a par with
which could he nrofitably employed. The con- ul ost of the .associations which have been charter-


sequence has been, that each bank has discount-
ed only about one-fourth, or probably not so
much, over its capital ; and the necessity of en..
! ., -1. ,- .'. discounts, as well as the competition
among them, has.induced then, all, probably,, to
admit much paper of at least doubtful credit, and
which ultimately became bad. They probably
all reasoned alike-We krow the necessity of
increasing our discounts, and, ifwe reject the pa-
per offered us, our customers will go to some
other bank, where they will not be so scrupulous
as we are. Now, their customers did worse than
this t they obtained as large discounts as they
could at one bank-as large, probably, as their
property could justify-and then afterwards went
to one or more '..:! e. banks in the same place,
with.this property i%) their possession, arid obtain-
ed equal discounts there, and each hank ignorant
that any other had lent them a farthing, until the
bubble burst. I do not vouch that this statement is
precisely true, or that it is confined to this Dis-
trict ; but that, such being the natural course of
events, and that it is true to a certain extent, is
sufficient for my argument.
If, therefore, the present charters of the banks
should be renewed, this ev il (as well as many oth-
ers important enough, but which my limits will
not permit ime to enumeratee) must remain in its
full extent; and if they should all be suffered to
expire, and the banks driven to an immediate
close of thcir bhu.ine s, a much greater evil would
fall upon the community ; for they would be call-
ed upon to pay their debts, en masse, at the veiy
moment when, thce whole circulating medium was
withdrawn.
In luedio-tutissitmus, therefore, and in order to
obviate one evil, the bat)k charters ought not to
be renewed, and, to avoid,the otihcr, some me-
thod should be adopted to facilitate the winding
up of the bank business, and to afford a circulat-.
ing medium in place of that withdrawn, as well to
enable debtors to pay the banks.as to answer outr
dai.y occasions. There appear to mue no better
means fir these purposes than Vw-ha,t is suggested
in the following plan :
1. Let there be a bank chartered Pr each of
the three corporations, with such capital as ic ay
be deemedi sufficient, which I should estimate at
half a million of dollars for each.
2. Let the banks in each corporation subscribe
the capital of the.consolidated bank in proportion
to the amount of .capital which each possesses,
actually paid ; or, if it should be deemed better,
let the banks subscribe a portion of the consolida-
ted capital, as one-half or two-thirds, and indivi-
duals the residue.
3. 'Let the subscription of the banks be a cer-
tain portion of specie, and the residue in such of
their discounted. notes as are of undoubted credit,
ana'let the commissioner's, appointed to receive
the subscriptions, be the judges of the credit of
the notes offered, (these commissioners being en-
tiiely disinterested,) and let these notes be placed
on the discount list of the consolidated bank the
moment it goes into operation.
4. The present banks will then have left many
undoubted notes, and all others of a doubtful
character, to collect. Let each bank then wind
up its business in its own way : they can retain
all their officers, or what portion ofsthem they
please ; and let the copstidated bank carry on


ed in several states, under that name. I .l... ,'
ly know the state of one o tiie., and have every
reason to believe that all of the'i, have conducted
their ahliiirs much better tihan the generality of th."
banks in the Union. B:ut we laIbor here under the
c ..... -.-. evil I have mentioned ; and, although I
propose a local remedy, I do -not the less wish
that it might be universal.
. Btit .it may be asked, if you would reduce the
currency tu such narrow limits, why have any lo-
cal banks ? The Baok of the United States has
a capital as large as. you would deem. sufficient
for the whole cou.n.try ; let that bank do all our
business. 1 answer, perhaps the capitalof the U.
States' Bank may be sufficient ; but I consider
that some local banks are necessary, that the re-
duction of the currency may be gradual, and that
they may serves checks upon the National Bank.
I co(,,ess that I do not see the overwhdlminig evil
which is, vary soon,to fall upon the country from
ih. BUank. Many sensibl.a men imagine it, and
many senseless men pretend to imagine it; but
I consider this Bank to have been, as yet, more
sinned against than sinning."
It has been weakened by its own agents, be-
yond what 1L can recover in many months, if notL
in se veral years, and although I apprehend, with
some aiixiety, its power when it shall have reco-
vered its s'ti'cngth and reached its manhood, yet
I have too much confidence in our republican
institutions to believe in the enormous conse-
quences which have been predicted. It is true
that this Institution, with its Branches through
the country, reminds ime of the chain which
Franklin, or some other philosopher, thought ot,
to convey the electric ti-id in an instant around
the world ;-and local Banks should be establish-
Sd as conductors to sound the links of tlns chain,
and draw of'a portion or their electricity, lest, by
a sudden l.i. '" it might rem:d the w.'hole

A BANK DIRECTOR.


'TO TIf.E EDITORS.
ierenmber 3.0, 1819.
Gentlemen.: At the close of this ,-ear,'when I
look back on all my obligations, I- have to' curn
you thanks for.the many opportunitioc-ytrje"".-:v--e
afforded me to defend my systern and to claim
the attention of my fellow- citizens to their finan-
cial concerns. One hundred thousand dollars,-
expended on.a useful work, will cause numerous
animadversions. by ruining t0,oi( omists. whilst
millions, lost by error, pass unheeded. I haveto'
apologise for neglect of style : the -natter, and
not the manner, was my concern. I sought not
for the gratification of vanity, by victory, as an in-
tellec.tual gladiator'; simple truth I endeavored
to establish, and scorned to decorate her for vul-
gar admiration in harlotornamients. As'a repub-
I;. '.i, I am an anti-bullionist, an anti-bankis nd
.an anti-assignatist. The.monied interest f'have
combated, and endeavored to impress a convic-
tion on the public mind, that national credit, pro-
perly applied, would be superior to that of stock-
jobbers, .usurers, brokers, &c. who only become
rich as blood-suckers. -The Secretary of the
Treasury's report has already produced offers of
money on low interest, if the period of payment
be postponed to a distant date. The cunning I-
saacs argue thus:-" The' government may catch
at the idea of a loan on moderate terms, the li-
quidation of which will fall upon posterity. To
us it will be a rgood remittance to England or
the British, who are now alarmed and wish to
transfer their fo-rt'.n's, and will give us a premium
fPr it. Bvy this me tis. also, we may divert the
attention f' Congress from a disposition becom-
ing prevalent, to extricate the nation from our
thraldom,. If the government once finds that it
can stand with-.ut leaning upon us., our profita-
ble occupations will be gone, and ourconiequence
wi!l be lost. We' prosper only whilst the gov-
ernment doubts its own credit, and relies on ours.
We gave our notes, n)t bearing interest, for gov.
ernment 6 per cent. stock, at 80. We subscribed
this stock at par, to the United States' Bank, artd
might have sold out at 157, and then lent our mo-
ney on shaving-interest till government wanted
to borrow again. If the government does not
now solicit us for loans, the bubble will burst.
We irmust clamor about bullion and against in-
novation."
I am.condemned by some well wishers for
looking forward a century. I hope that a cen-
tury will hereafter seem but as a day, in the
existence of this federative republic. Yet, as an
old mariner, I feel alarmed at some 1,1,ck .ipcek
rising just above the horizon, which tihrc:ieri a
tremendous hurricane..
With prayers for continued prosperity and
happiness to this band of brothers, who can only
be preserved by wisdom, justice, and moral feel-
ings, and with solicitation to the advocates for-
freedom, to strengthen what has been feeble its
me, and 'to improve, what has been defective ; I
now bid farewell. HOMO.
P. S. Since 'writing this farewell, I have seen
your avowal that you differ in opinion with the
writers in your paper, in favor~of Natiunal Cur-
rency, but that you acquiesce in the propi ity of
issuing a limited amount of Treasury notes, alias
assignats. You also approve of what you term.
a fermentation, ,which -you say-purifies., I think
the present evanescenrce of currency is rather a'
running out which prevents f>rn,:nitafion, and
that the dregs left, alils, notes of bankrupts, &-c.
do not, resemble purity. -The rise of bank stock,
I think, is solely owing to the fermentation in
F. 1-n 1 which makes prudent men anxious to
buy our paper-particularly if the, period of re-
demption be very remote. A.n augmentation of
debt is the expedient of a bad managerr. Eng-
land is now suffering by it. Remember, a debt is
a burthen, and a National Currency, the blood of.
the social body. Read my A. B. C.
I wish you many happy years,
And more expert as financiers. Ii
