1 JEJblElisoMA2s liKPuBlAUAN, S.U Mr. Caldwell to Mr. Cusliin. Ispwicu, August 4, 1840. Hon. G. Cushing, M. C. Newburyport: Sm When I had the honor of an interview with you the other day, at East Boston, on the measures of the present Administration, you promised to send me several Congressional documents. Will you not forward me some soon? T think tlmi T intimated to you, on that occa sion, that my only regret at leaving the ranks of the Administration party was the necessity of leaving behind me many honest and worthy men, who have not as yet publicly withdrawn their support from Mr. Van Buren. But my hope is, that in due time we shall nevertheless Trmml as heretofore, exerting our common energies in the same direction, for the good of our suffering country. I wish in all kindness 10 cherish great respect for them; but I should he false to every honorable sentiment, to remain in a position where I could not render an hon est and cheerful support to the prominent meas ures of the d...

JEtTERSONIAN REPUBLICAN ferson. (Cheers.) It has been said by the Hen rys, tho Madisons, theGraysons, and others, that one of the great dangers in our government is, that the powers vested in the general govern ment, would overshadow the government of the States. There is truth in this, and long sinco :md often have 1 expressed iho opinion that the interference of the general government with the elective franchise in the Stales, would bo the signal for the downfall of liberty. That inter ference has taken place, and while the mouths of professed democrats appeal to Jefferson, and declare they are governed by his principles, they are urging at the same time 1 00,000 office hol ders to meddle in the State elections! And if the rudo hand of power be not removed from the elective franchise, there will soon be an end to the government of the Union. (Cries of assent.) It is a truth in government ethicks, that when a larger power comes in contact with a smaller power, the latter is speedil...

JEFFiiUtSUAlAN REPiibLIOAN. ThouIits on the Sub-Treasury. Messrs. Editors. The other morning, as the writer, lay1 in his bed, reflecting upon the all-absorbing topics which now agitate this Un ion from one end to the other, the following thoughts passed before his mind. The Sub Treasury scheme was atone time predominant, and while thinking of it in ono point of view, a singular but natural analogy struck me as ex isting between it and one of the parables intro5 duced into a discourse by our Saviour. You will recollect that at one time he was enforcing the duty that every one should make1 a nroner use of the talents entrusted to his care, and illustrated it by a parable, the substance of which was as follows: A nobleman was called from his house to a foreign land, and on leav ing, divided his money among his servants, which each one was to take crare of, that is his own portion, until his master's return. When he returned he called them to account for the mo ney he had deposited in t...

He despatched Captain Aaron Ogden, of New-Jersey, who was at that time, with Washington, ardently en gaged in the cause of his country, with the procedings of the Court of Inquiry, to Sir Henry Clinton; and ho was directed to remain at Jersey City all night, after delivering his despatches; and in the course of the evening, which he would Bpcnd with the British officers, to speak of the arrest of Andre, and to suggest the certainty of his death, unless he could be exchanged for Arnold.
