GENERAL Sr.CLAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 24 February 1818
GENERAL Sr.CLAIR. From our first attendance upon congress we do not recollect to have ever heard a greater display of eloquence (of various kinds] than hat occurred since the report of the bill for the relief of St. Clair. Argumentative, pathetic and iowcry, gave way in turns to each other. The speeches of Sergeant, Hopkinson, and Clay Were for length and beauty such as are seldom heard within the walls of Congress. Messrs. Hugh Nelson and Holmes spoke to the tt.elings, they made 1 powerful appeal to the hearers. On; ~ Monday St. Clair was on the floor | of congress. Bowed down almost to the ' earth with years, infirmities and misfortunes, be presented a mournful soectacle from which the eye turned away with sorrow and sadness, when it contemplated the remnant of his greatness. “Fallen, fallen from hia high estate, 44 Deserted in his utmost need——'’ j St. Clsir is nobly poor, he hss a proud aoul, and absented himself yesterday ra j ther than hear the soul chilling words, t/iarity, i...

Foreign Articles, [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 24 February 1818
Foreign Articles, A few days ago we had information of a battle said to have been fought between the Patriots and royal Spaniards in the plains of Cailabozo in South Ame tics. A more specific account of that affair has just reached usi '1 ht narrative ia of the legal cast, and bee most magnificently. It of course claims the vicloiy tor the Ferdinand and inquisition party, and represents the cunUicl as rivalling the battles of Marengo, Austeriiu and Jena! It states that the Fatriot loice consisted of 1500 men, with two pieces of artillery, and the royalist of 1300 men, and that, of the former, |l-00 were slain— to say nothing ot wounded and prisoners—whilst the latter lost only 11 killed and 9d wounded! '1 his, you will observe, gentle reader, was an open fight, the Patriots having been posted on a height, and the combat decided with the bayonet be with cavelry. Whoever can believe the whole of this story, must have a pretty good share of credulity. One circumstance, however, which i...
BRITISH MEDIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 24 February 1818
BRITISH MEDIATION. An article has recently appeared in the public prints announcing that Great Bri lain has offered to mediate between Spain and her late colonies. This information seems to be generally believed. -What will' be the effect of this interference? Will Spain accept it? Will the Patriots accept it? Has it been already accepted by Spain? Will it end in the establishment of Independence among the Spanish South Americans, with a monarch! cal form of government, and a grant of exclusive commercial advantages to theBritish? What effect will it have on the discussions between the United States and Spain? Hoes not Spain studiously procrastinate the termination of the negotiations with our government, in older to gain time to adjust the differences with her colonies, arid thereupon to assume higher ground in relation to the claims of the United States? Will Mexico be included in the mediation? T.iess arc questions worthy of serious cons'deraiion. and the reflections which they g...

GENIUS OF LIBERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 24 February 1818
GENIUS OF LIBERTY. TUESDAY, FEB. 24. The vulgar saying that the '‘galled jade winces** is fully verified by the uneasy, restless dispositions of the two /rare making writers in tlje last Washingtonian, “Philo,” and “A Federalist." There is no fact more self-evident than this; paint a particular and prevailing vice and if there be one person present guilty of the same he will be the first to exclaim against it. The conduct of false and hypocritical pretenders to religion has been painted in the Genius of Liberty and those that feel themselves guilty, and none but those, sec their own deformity and shrink from the hideous monster. Had we entertained any doubts as to the identity of those sanctimonious demagogues who are “tremblingly alive stirring up strife,” we should now no longer hesitate to say unto “ Philo” as good old Nathan said unto David when he had been guilty of the greatest abomination, “ thou art the man’’—and uhto “o Pederalint” also “//ion art the man.”— But we fondly h...
