From the Federal Republican. COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 4 November 1817

From the Federal Republican . COLONIZATION. It has been said that the scheme of colonizing Africa is idle, visionary and impracticable; these are tt)e common objections made to every thing novel, more especially if the measure is impnr tant in its various bearings and ieUlioi)s. The abo itibn of the slave trade was oi iginally met by objections of the same kind, and yet we have seen united Europe adopting a policy originally denounced as visionary and impracticable. But what is there extravagant or even hypothetical in the project now proposed for adoption? Is it incredible that the Africans are by nature capable of governing themselves; this is to fly in the face of all history, and to declare that no such country as Carthage ever existed; that Hanaibal never thundered at the gates of Rome—lt is to deny the most brilliant period of Roman history and to represent the character of Stppiu Africanus as a hero of romance*. But it is said that the present race of A.i'kans have degenerate...

From Miles’ Weekly Register. NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 4 November 1817

From Miles’ Weekly Register. NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. The organization and object of the government of the United States is essentially different from that of any other in the world. 'The constitution was adopted by THE PEOPLE, for their own use and benefit, and recognizes no classes or casts in the community—every citizen being supposed to possess an equality of rights, is accepted as competent to fill any office whatever in the gift of the people, or of the government, with the solitary exception that the president shall be a native bom citizen.— With such an organization and object, therefore, every law or regulation at variance with the will, or at war with the interests of the people, is, in its tfiir’i, nu 1 ! and void, and ought to be repealed. In most, if not in all of the governments in what is called the civilized world, (our own excepted) there arc four separate and distinct classesof society—l, those of royal blood; Si the nobility; 3, the firieU hood; and, 4, all the rett of ...

Sib; T M Word Yankee, which we apPly exclusively to. our brethren of the north, is said by some Etymologists, to originate from an Indian name, Yankooj but this is something like the etymology of Chesapeake, from Cheete-a fieake—and Mississippi from and many other derivatives of a similar na. ture.

When the puritans under John Rob* ertson their leader, left England, they migrated to Holland, and after some lime, a few of them intermarried with some of the straggling Germans from the Rhine, commonly called high Dutch.

JUNIUS; NO. I. To Hie people of Virginia. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 4 November 1817

JUNIUS; NO. I. To Hie people of Virginia. fellow-citizens: The time is fast approaching when your public servants will assemble at Richmond, to exercise their delegated powers, and to act agreeably to the instructlons which you may give them, in promoting the permanent interests of this commonwealth. When the prosperity and welfare of a state is suffered to decline by the negligence, the apathy or the misconduct of her public servants, it is an inherent right in the people and a duty incumbent on them to 'Superintend their own affairs, by giving those, in whom they*tepose trust, such instructions at they deem most congenial to the rising prosperity of the commonwealth. Should they turn a deaf eSr to those instructions, it they remains for the sovereign people to discharge them as unprofitable servants, and delegate their powers to others more faithful. The office of a legislature is' certainly one of great responsibility. In a government so happily constituted as our own, every stat...
