In urh a iranctiun. however, l!io who kww th l ict l'fxudct, wdl readily allow that pou-lire pou-lire pou-lire pioof o( the mwtifct of the uipjreiin 11 nut to be exhibited.

In every thinf tliurcfure which rcUtei to this gentleman, no higher a specie of tetiimony ouht to be expecie.1, than that ol a circumtianiial or presumptive nature. AH the three Lindi of proof indeed, are in thir nature nothing more than comaralivf, and purging degree of comparison to the extent of ihvir op-plii-ability, op-plii-ability, op-plii-ability, op-plii-ability, op-plii-ability, and no further, it may be truly affirmed, affirmed, that pretumpiix e proof of whatever lwar relation to Mr. Burr, h vposuire, a I ho must eluolutc evidence against plain, honest ci'.izem. Habituated to inlnirue, and dislinui lied by tiieanrrcy and celerity of his movement, it it problematical whether even (in oonfulenlial luenuj could bring home lo him a tingle act ot hi of moment. 1 it said, and I believe with truth, that one of hi primary political maxim l. never to convrrsr on an important subject in the presence of twoment Nor i it, it is believed, less a maxim with him, to avoid romuiunica-ting, romuiunica-ting, romuiunica-ting, even to his confidante, his ideas in writing m political subjects. Ural communication is -bit -bit clement, and even tttisi regulated by a rule Mdnrtry so nice, a to lorliid In converting on naterial affairs in Ihe prenenccof more than one man I I hut fortibed by ibt!e rules, from which lie never departs, it will not he expected that I can so far enter hi cabinet of curious secrets a to adduce that sort of testimony concerning the suppression oflheti-tury, oflheti-tury, oflheti-tury, as will impose conviction conviction on every mind, that it was suppressed with views unfriendly lo the administration of Mr. Jefferson." One object of this ptngraph seems to be, lo pre-pare pre-pare pre-pare the reader to exjwet only cviJence of the cir-eum.UMUil cir-eum.UMUil cir-eum.UMUil kind, short of pjiitivc proof, and t- t- ensure ensure it the most favoraUe reception. The attack on the Vice-PrciiJent Vice-PrciiJent Vice-PrciiJent is resumed in the following paragraph paragraph : " Habituated to ttcret movements find dark eonsultuttons, it may be aid, that the covert covert manner in which Mr. Burr carried on the iiugociationfor the suppression of this history, was nothing out of the ordinary way in which lie conduct his political affair, B it let it not be forgotten, that Mr. Burr possesses sufficient powers of mind to diuinuuh between what require concealment and what doe not ; and that both the one and the other are by him regulated regulated by his inordinate views qf' pcnonal ambition. ambition. In matters in which the public aic concerned, concerned, secrecy which abhors disclosure and shuns the light of day, ill comports with the geneial wcllae. Nor is it to be presumed that the public can with safety, repone confidence in him 'Mho appears solicitous only to wrap his c-tions c-tions c-tions in profound mystery. Such conduct i c a!-cilnted a!-cilnted a!-cilnted to inspire jealousy and distrust. A state jugg'er who, retiring from the public eve, spread mischief by his puppet, may astonish with hi ropes and pullies the satellitie by whom he is surrounded ; but a sensible public knowing their rights and valuing their liberty, will abandon him as they wou'd flee from a destructive destructive pestilence. " Thus Mr. Burr is conducting hi political affair, and mounting step by step to ihe summit summit of political authority. Versed in the art of hocus-pocus, hocus-pocus, hocus-pocus, while sitting in his state-room state-room state-room wailing the entrance of his political tool into tiie ami-chamber, ami-chamber, ami-chamber, the wretched herald of his will, hi mandate fly through the union and extend lo its extremities. Hence his invisible spirit insinuate itself into every circle, and with its deleterious qualities corrupts whatever t touches." Whether this mysterious, dangerous and highly alarming character is justly ascribed to Mr. Burr, we shall not take upon oureclves to express even the conjecture conjecture but let those who have thus pourtrayeJ him l ?k well to it what cart they wy, what answer will tiicy make when we demand of them why k ia that t!.ey have given all their support to a man for the second, second, if not for the first place in our governmcn, uv.cr.i they themselves have drawn in the darkest colors colors of unprincipled ambition ?
