THE RE CESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 9 September 1817
THE RE CESS. DIFFERENT VIEWS OF THE “INN OF PEACE.” This is the rendezvous of all The trifling sons of mirth; Here the frail heirs of Adam fall) And mingle into earth. Here shall sorrow cease to be, Afflictioi s all shall cease; Cut Hot exchang’d for shorts and glee— This is the inn of peace. Nor here shall friendship’s holy light, Give brilliance to the eyes— No, nor shall serpent slanders bite Bid indignation rise. No noisy joy, no rude debate, No contests enter here No sports of love, no venom'd hate, No smile, no sigh, no tear. These thoughts a mix’d sensation give, That doubly pains the breast: It makes us dread to cease to live, Yet long to be at rest.

THE SAGE OF MONTICELLO. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 16 September 1817
THE SAGE OF MONTICELLO. From a series of letters published in the 4 Cape Fear Recorder, at Wilmington, N, C. we copy the following interesting account of our late president and - his favorite Monticello. The village of Milton is 3 miles from the seat of Mr. Jefferson, late president of the United States. My stay there did not exceed three hours; and my opportunity of con verse with this great man was much shorter than I wished. How ever, from my own observations, and from correct and authentic information, I am enabled to give you such an account of Monticello, and its philosophic owner as may afford you gratification and en tertainment; as the most minute particulars respecting so eminent a character, and whatever may concern him, may in terest you I hope 1 shall nut be accused of prolixity. Thomas is the oldest surviving son of Peter Jefferson; he had six children, two daughters alone lived to maturity; one married to Mr. John W 1 ppes- the other to Mr. Thomas M. Randolph. The pat...

NEW STATE CONSTITUTION. Natchez , July SS. The convention elected to form a con* Btitution for the people of the Western division of the Mississippi territory, assembled at Washingt&gt; n on the 7th inst. The expediency of acceeding ta the proposition of congress to become an independent state, was determined on by a large majority. A large committee consisting of twenty one, was then raised to prepare and report by a given day, the project af a constitution. This committee proceeded by a subdivision into four parts to the discharge of the duties assigned them. A project was accordingly prepared and reported; but what seems a little strange, the report was said to be disapproved of by every member of the committee. The convention then resolved itself into a committee of the whole and commenced a discussion of the reported project, section by section. They went through the caption, declaration of rights, and had advanced partly through the legislative department when the subj...

TROCLAMATIOX. CITIZEN GREGOR M’GREGOR, G literal of Brigade of the armies of A'ezv Grenada and Venezuela, and general in chef of the armies of the Mori das, with commission from the governments of Mexico and South America, Soldiers! —l lose not a moment in expressing to you the satisfaction and pleasure I have derived from your soldierlike conduct of late, and the progress you have made in military discipline and subordination. This is the foundation of all military enterprizes, and renders superior numbers of enemies of no avail in action Continue to follow up the exemplary line of conduct you have so nobly begun; it not only inspires your chief with sentiments of the greatest confidence, but will also fill with terror the ranks of the slaves of Ferdinand the seventh. The most active measures have been taken for the speedy movement of the .army, and I trust soon, at the head of such troops, to plant the green cross of the Floridas on the proud walls of St. Augustine.
