TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 17. Tkt Federalist k late City of tVathington Ganttl contain a letter from the publisher of a new edition of tbe Federalist, Mr. Gideon, to th editor of that paper, which I feel myself called Opon to notice The tallowing is an extract : ".Ur. Etltef. ' 1 h - Editor of th New - York Evening Post.ln bis paper of the 27th ult. has thought proper to caution me against the adoption or tbe list or au thin of the federalist, a published in the pa per of this city, in the edition of that work wbich I am about to put to press, 41 under the prnulty of hiving it denounced." This premonition it the more surprising, inasmuch as I had atatail that the names of the authors would be procured " from a source wbich cannot be questioned." In pursuance of my original intention, I wrote to Mr. Madison, the late president of the United Statu, and who is well known to have been one of Uin writers of th Federalist ; and he ha beau ro kind as to lend me hi copy of it, with the name of the author of each number pr fil ed m b own nand writing; t and with various Corrections of th text made by himself in those number which cam from his pen. I hope. therefore, that I may escape the penalty of Mr. Coleman denunciation, and that he wi'.l be candid enough to allow that Mr. Madison if quite mod authority in rel ition to thi author.l ip in question as gen Hamilton, and that in appealing to lb living Bjemorroi in former 1 inBict no in Jury on th memory of the dead." " I am, sir, retpectiulli, ynurobt. servt. "JACOB GIDEON, Junr." To this the following remark t are subjoined fey the editor of the Oaxette : " Mr. Gideon hit bee" so polite at to allow us to eX'Tnine Mr. Madison' ropy of the Federalist. It is of the edition of 179 print' ed in New - York, by John T.thout. On com paring th I si of authors inserted in thi Oa - xrtt on the 8th of December last, with the designation of autltorship in Mr. Madison's feand - writior hi his own enpy. w. find that the forme was, in s - ime tespects, erroneous. Tht fbllowing, however, taken from the volumen now beiure us, hut be confidently reitedon : No. 1, 6, 7, 8, 9. II. 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 21, 93, 23. 24, 35, 26, 27,28. 39. 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, SS, 06, 39, 60, 1, 65, to 85 inclusive, by Mr. Hamilton. Nos. 3. 4, 5. 64, by Mr. Jay No. U. 14, 18, 19,20,87 10 58 Inclusive, and 63 and oa, by Mr. Madison. This designation duter very widely from that of th Editor of the New - Yo Evening IV t. who denies Mr. Madison the authorship of twelve numbers to which he is entitled, to wit : Nos. 49, SO, SI, 55, S3, 54, 65, 56. 57, 58, 62, and 63; sni claims tor Mr. Hamilton participation iu Ho!. 18, 19, and SO. With reprt to the l;it three numbers, we find th following note at No 18, ia Mr. Madison's copy, and in bit own hand writinr : M The subject of this ami tbe two following numlier hapeaeil to be taken up by both - 'r H. and Mr. M. Wbat had been prepared ty nr. n. wno bad entered more briefly into tbe subject, was left with Mr. M. on its appearing inai we latter was engaged in it with larger materials, and witli a iew to a more precise delineation ; and from the pen of the latter the several papers went to th press 11 - The question may be now cnewMered as settled, and we are willing to let it rest here. But if Mr. Coleman continues to persist in asserting the correctness of his erroneous list, we will proceed to show, from the toiiics aud tttte of the contested aumbert, that Mr. Madison has a fair Claim to them." This is the third attempt on the part of Mr. Madison's friends, to lessen the claims of Hamil iw " muuMinuip ot we principal papers in this Justly celebrated rrk, by acnbing them, in Unas orconfidence, to Mr. Madison. A list of the numbers it contains, with the names of the separate authors, bas thrice been published bV tbcm, accempaoied each time wi h rn ajfur ance (hat it was " iodi.putaUy correct" ; " de rived from a source which could not be question' 1 ., ... ... - d". and so a j all pom'jrg to Mr Wadi - on as Inrir authority; bui tafcrtunatelr a tr ot I titmliitoagTwa. ,It to aol my uiUUn Ug th miml rJ this nentrovenT asain, and I will assent to the opinion expressed by Mr. a - disoo's friends, that neither his fam as a states man or aa English scholar nor that of th decea sed Hamilton rests on th prncis numbers ortae Federalist that .each wrote, nor that tta wry essential to th literary reputation Of either, how thudiiDDttis settled : I will acknowledge more over, that candor might readily presum that th recollections of both may have been to imperfect as to hav very innocently erred as t a particular paper or two or three papers ; but with regard to so great a number a twelve, ta ted by Hamilton to have been written by him, but now claimed by 51r. Madison, I feel myself compelled to tnj I am utterly unable to devise any satisfactory solution, that will be consistent with the honor of both gentlemen. To speak plainly, I will not disguise my opinion, that there is 00 alternative but to believe one in preference to tbe other for both we cannot believe. Which of the two, then, Hamilton or Madison, is end tied to ear ceafidonce f th man, who, during th coarse of bis life, was never once suspected of n trespass on veracity, and whose proud and elevated soul was known to be incapable of claiming th credit of another's labors j or tlie man, who, to serve a purpose, daringly and publicly declared, in tbe face of the world, that the Berlin and Milan decrees were repealed, when it was well known, both in Europe and Ameri ca, that such was not th fact The declaration is placed upon the public records; and no lapse of time can ever alter or erat it. Let it be remembered that the advocates of Mr. Madirwn have, heretofore, appealed, in the tastrewH - t, toth paper of Hamilton which be left behind him ; and thereby agreed to abide the result. Tbose papers have accordingly been resorted to, and on bas been found wbich was written under the solemn expectation ofap - prwotbing death, for tbe express purpose of doing justice to tbe several writers in this work 1 and this paper negatives the claims now advanced by Mr. Madison and hit friends. This paper, in Hamilton's orn hand - writing, is now deposited by bis friend judge Benson, with whom he left it, in the archives of tbe city. This is the authority upon which I f peak ; an authority which will never be questioned by any one who knew the lamented Hamilton. But what I complain of; what every on to whom the memory of Hamilton to dear, must complain of, is, that the friends of Mr. Madison, not only fly from the test to which they themselves bad appealed, but that they have not had the candor to inform the public by republishing the facts, wbat evidence that test afforded : Is it fair, is it reconcilable with integrity to persist 'till in their assertions without taking any notice of this evidence, or even letting it be known that their statement is questioned ? The least the edi tor of the new edition can do, a he bas any regard for truth and fairness, and I will add, for hit own character, is to prefix to the numbers claimed by both Hamilton and Madison, some mark indicative of that fact j leaving the public to judge to which of the two they belong. With regard to the three numbers, 18, 19 and 20, 1 might safely rely on Mr. Madison' own ac count of them, to justify Gen. Hamilton' claim to a joint authorship, and few remarks woold be accessary j but willing to rest the dispute here, I purposely avoid saying any thing that may giv any fresh occasion to prolong a controversy, which, it is feared, can never now be settled to he entire satisfaction of all p trtict. 1 cannot close, however, without expressing my surprise, (hat the editors of our public prints should have taken the part they have ia this controversy j - ome, from whom the Iriends of Hamilton's me mory would have looked for a very different con luct, particularly the editor of the Boston Ceo ioel, who pronounces the note of Mr. Madison '1 above mentioned in Mr. Gideon's publication, ' the most authentic document that has trans pired," and this after seeing the memorandum left by Hamilton in his own baud - writing.
