"Cangrees are progressing in. preparations for vin-
,oicating the rights .of the nation.--We shall resuine.
'the journal of'their proceedings next'week.

The most unwearied, pains.'ha-'e been taken by
.r hon,~raete minds the Federalists, to injure the
credit of our paper, for many years. -to6 effect their
ultimate object, its utter destruction, no effort has
been left tunessayed' A federalit in this town. "ira
whom, detached from politics, we have as infich.'re-
gaid as for apy of his party, (and there are many
respectable men in the party ', inm "we highly es-"
teem) declared in. or prepence,'on .the p.ublih.pa-
raide, that he wattid ive $200 out of his own
pocket tocrush the PHENrx, ifhe could be assured .
no other would arise from its ashes." If such are
the sentiments of'the moderate, what may be con- ,
sidered the views and wishes of the zealous and bit-
ter, amohg out political opponents Similar dd-
clarations from others, and the conduct of many of
them, explicitly enough answer the question. They
are jealous of the reputation our paper has ever-
sustiined for, veraeity and fair statements; they
are 6outi~geotis at the idea, that we have numerous
sterling 'friends, whom their fiowns cannot influence, v
nor their persiasidns' induce, to abandon the sup-'
port of a paper, which has never intentionally de-
ceived its patrons, and will never fail to defendant
inculcate the immutable principles of'Reiubliduaimiin
and Truth. Hence the blustering remarks 'and
,e report respecting a triviall tircumnstance, .
which occurred, in tdie puiblicationx xf .'ou' last.
paper. At any otherperiod than tile'eve of'anelec-,
tion, no person would have had the folly t.o charge
us with an intentional departure from that i'ectitude
ofconduct we.havq, as.Editors,. ever aiined.to prac-
tise, in consequence of the occurrence of'the cir-
cumstance above mentioned, and whichit is now our
duty to explain. '
Having a large.number of subscribers Ip the coun-
ty of Bristol, (Mvass,) and the mail for that quarter
departing very early in. the' morning of Siturday, it
hasheen ouris.variable practice to strike off, a suf-
ficiency of papers to send by that mail,.'oa Friday
night, A, report had been. circulated in the country
during g.the last week, that- an Esmbargo.was laid,
and vessels stopped in this harbor; it was our duty
o' conatritdict this 'report; the Phenrix of Saturday
tast was' therefore prepared with the requisite con-
radiction,.and a' small number struck off, previous
o. the arrival of the Western Mail. On Saturday
morning, before day-light, we fook fro'n the Post
Office dur' mail-pipers ; aind finding that an ac
having an Embnrgo had passed Congress, ourtforni
was broke u's, t'he. 'accomtt', hmerted, and' 960 .par
ers (the t-emainder of ou" dniumu) strdck"off.-4
iost of the papers 'which had been printed the
evening previous, were packed uip, antd many of
hem sent- offby the Taunton and other small mails; ;
he remainder it was'intended to have resertea-
ut through inadv'ertence, a few of them became
nixed wkith those printed in "the morning, and thus
ot into circulation.-This explanadtioi,'we presume,
ust be satisfactory to every cuadid person, ac-
uainted with the business of.a newspaper office; l
tlid to those who are not, it is only necessary to
tate, that ourt mode of. procedure is iot at all
novel; that newspaper printers in other towhs (aid
mtne In this, licsid. ourselves) have often stop/~ed t

mhe. /ress to insect an ai'ticle 9f news--and thus have m
lso been guilty of the heinous crime of printir.g
tWo sorts of papers."'-'The barefaced falsehoods t
vhich htavc beca 6audied about iu fcderAl newspa- (

I' ers and handhills, and the very honorable conducted
anii pbservations of maivy leading.federalists, re- ."'
,specting this affAir, may be noticed hereafter.

The Bosaton Chronicle 'of Thursday; after men-
tioning several federal rmis-statemeents of Gutterns-, ..

rately counted, the election may wear a much more
favorable aspect, and Gov. Gxk R~i may yet be cho-
