Hudson and GoorjiriN, TOT having been actively engaged for ma-X ny years in the public Icenc; of life, I have had fume leifure tti obferye the changes vhicli for 30 years pull, have taken place in, the manners and morals of the people 'of this Hate. In many things the alteration has been gradual and attended with nu inconvenience, infoniefcw things changes have been real im-provcmcnt-'oF the ft..tc of fociety ; but there are certainfcmimentE and opinions in thepublic morals of our country, v.'hicii fecm.to be in a flucftuating fiate, though in my opinion they ought always 10 remain fiicd on their ancient iiiundatimii. Such in the firft place, are the opinions which have been taught by our an-celtors, refperfting the belief -and attributes of the Deity, the atonement, and a final (late of rewards and punininicnts. . Thefe things" have been taught the pr-fir.t race as effcntial, nut only to our happinefs in another, world, but to our well being in this life. . It is with pain th:u 1 now ubfervc, thcre.is. fomcu-herc R caufe, continually operating among the people, to weaken the belief in thefc grand and important truths.' This is evident from the levity and familiarity with which thefe awful fubjefts lire now treated by people of different ranks and ages in this (late. Formerly a good cudom prevailed among neighbours, -when met together, of converting fcriouily on moral a;id religious fubjects ; and at iuch converiationsj men of. Imall cipencnce, and cfpeciiillyoiwj; men. were Wont to' HfUn to what was Hud by tlicicfuperiors in age and un-derftanding. '1 r reverie is now fadly the C3fc. '1 tiere arc few vifiting parircs in thefe times who think cf convcifirig en, rrfigious or moral topics at all ; but if perchznes- rhe're 'happens a cafe of this kind, ten to one but the aged and the "wife ara interrupted by fome impertinent Joimjr man. who deems it a mark of fpirit and manlincfs, to draw into to djfpute forne of the heft eftabliflied truths .'f the Chrinian fyftcm. , Is this a change for the betjer ? It cannot be, unlcfs boys without ejperience, are the fitted pcrfons toinflrucl thofe who From'lchgthor days, tisveacquired fometitle towifdom. The' practice is fo contrary to th: order of natute and the fage maxims of all agei, both' ancient and modern, that 1 cannot fuhfcrilie to it. I am yet u.iwiljing-that rjy for., tho' by no means defi-cisnt in undcrftanding, iliould become my in-ftructor, titlier in th" duties of life.orthe principles of religion. I claim k right from nature, and the rule of propriety, to bcfiis inltructoiy and hold .myfe'lf refponCblc to God and my country for the exercifc of tbis right. J have indeed no right, to couirol the. laws of lit con-feiehec ; but furcly I .may 'teach him, what by my own experience 1 have feurid beneficial to ly e (fiujtr'y. I have been feekiug for ihe caufc of this important impro'venient as it i;.-called by Tome, butwhich l can-call by 110 better name than -corruption of morals. In. every country there are ambitious fpirits who wifh a charge of rulers, and the niotlconvenient modc of effecting .1 revolution of this fort has been to court the favour of the people hy an appeal to t hcir paf-fions. Formeily the Demagogues of "this ftate refoi ted to their little patlions of envy, malice, ftc. and attempted by various V.:rar, to undermine the (cats of thtfc in power. It was .generally found however that thefc little tricks did notfueceed, and the mm of ftcrling merit Cuntihucd to hold all the places of ti-uft and power. Hence it is, that the laws have 'been fo.wifc in themfclves, and fo wifely adminiftcr-ed by the Magiftratei, that this little ftate has beeu confidcrtd by llraugcrs, as a kind of political paradife, Since the French revolution a more daring policy, a'fyfltm intirely new has been adopted as the high road to office. The Demagogues have, in compliance with the cuftom of the French, reprcfented all our ancient cuflsnis, particularly habitual attachment to the Vnl if cur fibers, as the refult of a flavifh fuperilition.1 They aiTtrt, with an alfurance and a Dogma-tifm hitherto unknown to our citizens, and peculiar almofrto Frenchmen, that our fears 6 a future flate and of the everlafling juftice of God, are all the work of a cunning and fanatic 1'rieflhood. At firft this impudent and facri-legious warfare upon themoft valuable andven-erablc of inftitutions, was treated asafliocking -outrage upon morals, piety, and faith ; but purfuing their object with a perfeverance and refolution, which is the cj.ciufive privilege of Jacobkiifni, they have made of facrilcge a familiar thing, and made an impretTlon upon the minds of many, which if not checked will finally deflroy the ancient habits and choice opinipns of the Connecticut people. Since my recollection, a vicious man who was once foiled in his attempts to croud into t lTicc, became. kflfihlc bow- vain and foolifli a thin? it was, to took for nromntintV .nmtmo enlightened people, without the ftrwug fupport of virtue, and under this conviction mended his morals, or funk to that obfeurity which was appropriate to fuch a character: But m u diys, a Deift or debauchee, no matter huw often difappointed, comes forward, a fecund, third and fctiiib t'.tnc and dcmamli of tl,c people an election, with as much afiurancc, as if his De-il'm antlDebauchcry were lureand certain proof of his indifputable qualification. All this impudence which is working and has wrought fuch aftonilhing cLaaga, is to be imputed to theyi.' ffirii f Jacobiuifm ; and unlcfs my countrymen aie prepared to deny God, his ion, and ilic merits of the atonement, they will watch the movemtrts or this wily r.nd wicked foe; and when opportunity oilers, roufe and crufli a-montler, whoalTails the icli- gion, the virtue and the honor of their couk-lH- iJUSTlNlAN. MefTrs. Vrini chs, IpitOM the American Mercury it pppears, lh.it the faction againd government, while conipiaiiiing of the deceptive aits of the federal-if:, under the fpeeious' pretence or illuminating the people, practice the fame arts of which the) complain ; and, impotently attempt, to fatten on them, thofe crimes ::nd excelles which aici.v.-.'u.V'v and t-pUl.:c..ty their own. And, they el'j not tu u.ipiovc every opportunity, to foift in the odious epithets, of Ariftccrut,, A- ratrUan Tcriei, Avglo-federcttjls, Hfc. ' This is all bmfl and well meant. No matter by what means a gosd caufe is fupported. This is an imported maii.n. In the Mercury of Sept. 25th, a writer, untie r the fignaturc of AwL.-n':, is much nettled at the outcry which has been made, at the in-crcafeof Atbeifm, Deifm, &c. This he confidcrs as a fore characteritlic of an Arijucrat ; that is, a friend to .government. No one ever heard fuch a complaint from the mouth of a democrat. Strange ! Wonderfully tlrange 1 1 As furprifing as that a Cbrijiiatt fliouhl not cuinplain, when chridiatlity iucreafes ; Or that a fiflimonger thould not make an outcry of " Stinking jijb." Dcmocritus reprcfents republicans as being perfectly unconcerned, irt a view f the increafe of Athciljm, &c. A fine defcriplion of their moral feelings, and of their eminent regard to the welfare of fociety and the honor of chrif-tianity. Perhaps he believes, that there is no fuch thing as Atbeifm, Deifm, fee. now extant. This would not be ftrange, as it is too unintcr-efting a fubjedt, to imprefs the mind of a democrat. I fliall not attempt to enforce conviction of fuch a truth, except by dc firing him and his admirers to look impartially into the religious characters, of the principal oppoiers of the meafures of government ; to fee, if he can fiud a lmgle mttsnce among them all, of one, who avowedly believes in the Chrittian fyftcm, and is tenacious of its inftitutions. Another writer, in the fame number, after jufHy obferving, ' That freedom of election is interwoven with the ciiQcnce of a republic," has the boldncfs and effrontery to complain of infringements, on that palladium of liberty, by the friends of government. But, why this complain; ? Have theyfent round printed nominations, into all the towns in the Rate 1 Have they had'a general meeting and appointed committees ar.d fub-committe-cs, to diflriliute them, and to tamper with the lower clafsand lead informed of the freemen, to fix them for the freemen's meeting I Have they fent melTcngcrs on thefabbath prece ding freemen's meeting, to influence the election ? Have tlity made er.o.k-etn-aiyaticei of lands, to bring forward pcrfons to vote.on their fide ! Has the fame pcrfon put in Im veites for the fame candidate I Have their Cor.ftab'es, when collecting' votes, directly in the face of law, Jolicitcd votes for their party I Of alliiicp in the world, it leafi becomes, the oppofers of government, to complain on this'head : for nonienever took more direct means, 10 destroy freedom of ehetion than thefe high pretenders' for liberty. The writer, under confideration,pre;cndtogive a hiflory of the'procecdings of a particular town, on theday of the late Freemen's Meeting; and complains, moft bitterly, of the rejection ofecftain pcrfons, , who Ji.ad property, -and , were pcrfons of un-blcmifJie J. ' characters. ' But, fiirne better evidence thr.n the afTtrtion of m ahonymtJus op-liofcrof gfevernmertt, is neceffary to gain credit. Perhaps, the jluSb'.rity well knew, that; the property they -claimed, was made ever to-them, only 10 anfwer the purpofe of the day, Siich tricks have been prayed. "Or, perhaps, they 'vcrefeditiau pcrfons. Altho' this would be no difqualification, in the view of this writer, yet, in law it rcilly is fo ; for the law makes it ne-ceffary that they be peaceable inhabitants. But if all ihe facts he -flatcs were true, and were cenfurable, yet a democrat, a fvrt repMLan, in the appropriate lenfe rn which the . words are now tiled, 'had he the ltaft modetty, w ould be .illumed to come forward and complain ; for no fact is more obvious, than that fuch republicans have ranfacke tl every corner of the ftate, and ufed every arc that pafEou could dictate, tei obtain votes for men of their (lamp. For republicans, who claim an r:luf v; right to that name, to be fo officious as thty have beeu in influencing elections, had they a fparic of lioncfty, would be very rcrrarkablc. They are taking the molt direct meafures to deflroy the very foundation of a republican government ; and to introduce an hereditary monarchy, that tlie.r fertile inventions could dictate ; for, wh.o would not rather tfl to a kind providence to raifc up men, as the firft magi ftrares of a nation, than ro rifque the ifl'ue of the bufiiuls e.n lections, dictated bv pafGun, violei: e and fraud ! If the friends tof government arc alarmed, who that views, with impartiality, the prefcur ftate of the nation can wonder ? When the n:if-eries which have overwhelmed various nations in Europe, and the means which the principal actors and promoters of them haveufed, are taken into view, and the progrefs of the oppo-fition to bur own covcrnractit.aed the mealurcs which the principal men in the oppofition arc taking who that feels for his countryman be without folicitude .' The leaders in the oppofition to government, alTume the fame name w-ith the leaders of European factions, viz. Republicans. They brand the fricVuls of government, as the head of factions in Europe cue! their opponents, with the name of Arfo- crats. They alfo Cf.ll thcmfelvts " the friepih of tbefwple." It w as exactly thus in France, in Switzerland and iu Italy. 1 hey are the fame creatures, and are taking the fell-fame meaf ures, as well as ahuming the fame titles. And yet the people have been a tleep, 'till matters arc almofl ripe, to have the match put to the trail. Why will the citizens fuller themfclves to he decoyed and deceived by thofe fpeeious pretences, which covered the poifon, which has proved fo nearly fatal to fo great a part of F.urope ? Is it not evident, that the French begin to think that the plot is alimift ripe for execution. Is hot ilifurreiStion already excited in the Southern States ? Who was at the head ? Frenchmen. Who were to'he matVacrcd ? The .white ii. habitants, men, women and rhildicu. W e none to be fpared ? Yes, I rencumkn. W.i.it (iocs all this proclaim ? Is not thisthc plain language-of the bufinefs. that Fuk.chmi:n view the oppofition to goveriirne-ni as lo e-xrcnfive,-as that it is time to let iti.re,thc fuuther:i iiavesand ti c whole band of dil.,tVedtcd diforganizers to fprcadrieftruCtion among us I l Jit. tL.tl iuib curs iobcisr let b':tr. bear." lMelTrs.

When this -event 'fliall take place, (and it is not very didant) the inhabitants of New-England will be able to confole thenifelves with thcrcfl'-iaion, that they have unitedly op-pofed it. They have oppofed it in all confli-tutionaiways but one and that is in the field. As the dernier rcfort, to this they will have ie-courfc; for, while they are left with tlic liberty of fighting lUir oivn defence, they will never tamely yield to any nation. And while thev are beholding their fellow citizens iu tl.tr fouth-crn dates, .fuuk into fervitude, or nof-c id by their regenerated freemen, the regret, which they would otherwil'e feci at the fight, will be IcfTen'-ed by a melancholy confeioufuefs, that the Sonthcrncrs are reaping the fruits of their own labours, and receiving the wages oi their virtuous "democracy." REM.IRKS OK TCt ABOVE. - The accounts given in vour bft n.-.pcr, of the confpiracy among the Negroes in the fouthern ftates, appears to be the beginning of a fultii-mentof the foregoing pafiagc ; which, 1" mufl acknowledge, to me appears aim oft prophetic.

Thefe events -corrvinccd the- i rencli.that Amer-ica would be aufefui ally to them in their favorite object of reducing the power r.nd humbling "tiie pride ot thtrr ancient and liatc4 'rival ; they therefore entered into a treaty .of alliance that they would af5ft -js, -and that we Iliould affifl tUn, in the v.ar againft rea't Britain. Im-ir.ediati.ly after this treaty, toev ferit over a Minifter to refide at the feat of" Government here, whofe bufinefs was to gum all the influence poifiblc in our public councils. In thefe times of rational ioerpcrier.ee and difficulty, the French Miniiter by French diplumticjkm, -ia--duced a majority in' Congrels to give inftruc-tions to our CommiiTioacrs in Europe, that in every ftcp of their negociatipns for peace wirh theBritilb, they iliould commnieate the hup., nefs ro the French roinifler and folltnv their advice. Two of otr Commii5o::exs, Mr. A-dams and Mr. Jay, foon found sl-.it the French Government were abufing our confidence, and intriguing againft us. The French plan was to deprive us of the Newfoundland Fiilieiies, and to reftnet our limits to aflrip of country on the foa coaft ; in order that Svc might continue to be a feeble nation, and coufequcmly dependent en then. Our Oommifliouers faw through the treachery, and found it atifolutely necefiary (their inftructioris notwithllandinc) to keep the negotiation in their own hands, and out ot the view of the French niinifhy. Thcv i-at! the addrefs and good fortune toperfuad'e the Britifli uegociator that it would be bed for his nation, that America fhoulci be independent ot the French as well as of the E-ritilli ; and to this ,nd that our limits oujht to extend'to the great Lakes ar.a to the Miflifippi including the navigation of that rivcr.and that we ougiit to partake in the New foundiaud fitlicries. fn this way, our Commiffioneis obtained a moft advantageous treaty of peace, which, laid the foundation for national power and independence, in defpitc 01 1 he treacherous policy ( f the French, who intended to keep us weak and dependent on them. t his deceitful conduct of cm oW Frierds crd A.'i.'es was not made- imHlh- il.," fi,-. 1 .
