James Gordon Bbnnktv, Esii Dear Sir :? Our Chambers are now opened, the speech has been delivered, and the squabbles have already begun. The beautiful weather on the day of the opening of Parliament, enticed tout Paris to the Place de la Concorde, for the sake of witnessing the passage of the King. There were only a few National Guards on the spot; and the expected cries of " down with the Bastilles," were, therefore, few and far between. The King, as well as the ladies of the royal family, were frequently cheered; and it was generally remarked, that the people never gave them a more cordial recoptmm The deputies, who are to receive the King in the name of the House, wer?, as usual, drawn by lots; and the first person, whose name was read, happened to be Berryer, the legitimist, who cuts now so conspicuous a figure, from his recent visit to the Duke de Bordeaux ; but, of course, his name was j ,u? i;., i u..?i.,?. and ironical cries of " absent for the service of the Roi de Franct The speech of the crown met only with a passive reception?it is not considered of a very interesting nature, nor does it contain anything which could present lo'the opposition a Bubject of blame. Our relations with foreign powers are on the most friendly footing, and the paragraph.alluding to the good understanding between England and France was received with cheers, as well as tha statenaent of the prosperous stato of our finances. The fate of Spain and of the young Queen, claim his utmost solicitude, of which fact nobody entertains ttie least doubt, because ho wants her to marry one of his sons. A few words about the Princess of Joinville, Algiers, and the railroads, complete the whole document. But in spite of its milk and wutety complexion, the reply to the address will give rise to long and tedious discussions on amendments, which noth sides will bring forward. The Conservatives intend condemning the scandalous behaviour of the Icgitimistical Peers and Deputies, and the opposition will take hold of the forts, nicknamed bastilles, and perhaps of the never tiring and nil tedious question about the right of search. The only paragraph which will have the approval of all parties, is that speaking about the promised regulation of secondary institution, which is of the highest importance. The King took his departure amidst greut demonstrations of resnect and good will Irom the largely congregated assembly. The Duchess of Orleans was vehemently cheered us well as the Count of Paris, although he was not present. Mr. Lafitte was then nominated President of the Chamber pro tempoye, being the oldest deputy, and after the election of the eternal Sauzet as President for the year, lie returned thanks, accompanied by a very silly political speech about the different precipices which he fancies to open their maws, for the sake of engulphing our institutions. He was frequently and angrily interrupted, although he appealed to his past services and claimeda hearing lor the sake of his age. That is all very well; he is old, and his services were good, but the influence of a political character consists neither in the past nor in the future, but in the present, and nobody can deny that Lafitte has outlived himself, so that I always think of a singer who has lost his voice, whenever he speaks. Mr. Lafitte is a first rate banker, and a glory to France, through his virtues and exalted principles, but I do not think him a great statesman, at least judging from the decided failures of Ins ministerial file. He is too upright for a politician. He can prove admirably well that two and two make four, but now-a-days the real secret of a thorough politician consists in demonstrating that two and two make five, to the satisfaction ol the people and their representatives. He bears in u great many points a striking resemblance to your excellent John Quincy Adams. I was very much grieved at the downcast manner with which he received the "accolade d'utage" from his successor Sauzet, who had nut on a clean shirt and looked quite smart, probably in the anticipation of his successful re-election, through which he certainly satisfied the chairman, who is always quizzing hint on his dirty appearance. Till now ministers have turned up good cards, Sauzet having been their candidate. Tliey have uaewise neen suecessiui in inc election or itcsidenta anil Secretaries of tire bureaux for (he month, having elected ten members against eight of the opposition. The Duke de Broglie, who is sustaining them, has been nominated president of the committee appointed to draw up the unswer to the speech of the crown lor the Chamber of Peers.? This result is generally considered gratifying, although the opposition tries to lind a public condemnation in the decline of the stocks alter the intelligence has been received; but the decline was trifling, and rather the effect of manmuvres in the coulisse, Government has therefore a clear field, and it will probably push through the year, if it is not beaten in the dotation bill Yes, them dotation bills?there is the rub. Every speculation on its success is set at nought, hut it we judge from precedents, it will he defeated. Vou recollect that tne Ministers of the twelfth of Mai presented an apanage hill for the Duke of Nemours as Prince, and that it was rejected wiihout debate, mterri as it is called in the political largou. The present bill, however, differs from it insomuch as the dotation is asked for him in case of his becoming Regent of the 'calm, and that it will be paid during his official career only. The principal objection is, thai there is no necessity at present for the enacting of a similar law, and that it will be sufficient time to provide for the Regent, when the moment will he come for his functions. There were considerable quarrels between the King and the Ministers; he asked first a million of francs, then seven hundred thousand francs?to neither sum the Ministers assented, considering the amount asked too high?hence the rumor of the bill having been abandoned. But then, Louis Phillippe, acting on the principle that something is better man nothing, accepted half a million, and the ministers intend making a cabinet question out of it. The success of the bill is compromised by Louis Philip;**'* injudicious conduct in reference to the Prince de la Moscova, son of Marshal Ney. Soult presented his name to the king for a promotion from the rank of a major to that of a lieutenant colonel, but lie refused tosign it, because he opposes him in the Chamber of Peers, and berause be is an intimate friend of Theirs. As if a major could not enjoy the right of an unbiased vote. Everybody, but principally the fraction known as the centre gauche, are indignant at this unjust proceeding. i ne icii ccnin* cimiisin *m ?i?uui immj irtpuum, combining the principal orators of the Chamber, with Thiers as the lender. They would have voted iu favor of the hill, bemuse they were morally bound to do it, Theirs having supported the Hegency bill, but now they will probably resent the afl'ront inflicted on the Prince, who is their organ at the upper House, by absenting themselves when the bill is coming up. The Prince, who is very popular, on account of the sad end of his lather, lias thrown tip his commission, and intends devoting himself entirely to politics and the study of music; being an excellent composer of celebrity through his lovely Opera "Lc Cent-Suisse." The most important fact of the season is the change of Ministers. This importance does not consist in the change itself, hut iu the superior position of < Mii/.ot with regard to Soult. Mr. Uutnon, a simple Deputy, without any recommendation, except that of being a creature of Guizot and the whipper-in of the nominated minister of public works, in the place of Teste,who is promoted to the peerage, with the situation of a President of one of the Chanibrc* dc Cassation. Sou It strenuously o|>posed his retiring, having found Teste very useful ill answering the interpellation* of I he opposition ; wun nnf word, i esic was r?onn nsDunwn will he Ouizot's. In one respect the resignation of Teste is considered rather beneficial; the place o( a minister of public works is at thin moment, where our railroads are to be constructed, of very groat importance, and Teste, although very talented, was rather too much a man of impressions, than it is deemed consistent with the rnntenal interests of the country. He embraced every great idea with eagerness, but then the slightest objection took his courage away ; he is therorore not unjustly nicknamed the " mini$trr phonpho rii/M." lie was, moreover, too much in favor of framing contracts in the construction of railroads, UM iJ 'J I 1.1 J W II '.iHJB.ll .ggBHSCTB )RK ] IRNING, FEBRUARY 4, 1 contrary to public opinion, who think* them safer and cheaper in the hands of the State Mr. Passy has been likewise raised to the peerage. This circumstance is equally very important, first, because he and Teste ure men of great tulent, who will fortify and elevate the upper chamber, who till now has been considered as the ho.-pital of all olddeut and blindHeneruls and Ministers ; and second, because it may produce a change in the position of the respective parties in the Chamber of Deputies. Passy was the head of those deputies, amongst whom the ministers of the twelfth of May were chosen; his place will now be taken by Mr. Dufaure,who in rather liberal, and is expected to go over to Thiers one of these days. Guizot could not refuse the peerage to Passy, who asked it, else he would not have run the chance of increasing Thiers' strength, who begins to think seriously about office, mid who would certainly not confine himself to thinking only, if the question of the fortifications would be disposed of. Having made the report in. 1840 he would be obliged to defend tlieni, nt the risk of his popularity, which is the goddess he adores. Our holy mother church lias shown her teeth for some time, hut now she begins to be quite restive. Nearly all of the higher clergy require the dismissal of Professors from the Colleges ol their dioceses, whose views they consider dangerous to the Catholic religion. The Bishop of Chalons has inderdicted the administration of the sacrement 111 the chapel of his diocese, and threatens to excommunicate the ProlessOts. Most of the bishops and archbishops are Carhets, and Louis Philippe, who knows their infiuenep und power ill the nrovinces, 'is afraid of offending them, lie confines himself to proclaim in the Moniteur, that there was an abu*, about which the prelates care about as much, as if you would say to a mischievous boy you are naughty; on the. contrary they are proud of incurring the displeasure of the King of the French. This intolerant spirit exhibits itself even in paltry things, as, for instance, in the case of Moh^re's monument, at the inauguration of which the Minister of the Interior refused to assist at the advice of the Archbishop of Paris. So likewise a priest refused to accompuny the coffin of a young woman, because she was servant to Dejazet, the uctress. The storm culled up tluough the journey of the Duke de Bordeaux to London is far from having subsided. The Court is very uneasy, and it was currently reported that the sjieech of the Crown willalludu to the had conduct ol the Deputies and Peers who went over. But it was abandoned, because it would have the appearance as if the private affairs of the King would be mixed up with those of the nation. They cannot be. prosecuted, since they went simply on a visit, without having any political ends in view, us they say. This constitutes no crime, but only a misdemeanor ol a private nature. and diiea not prime under the inrixdictinn of Parliament or the Chambers. The only way in which the Kins showed his anger, was in dismissing six distinguished legitimists from the |iost of a Mayor in several small places. The prosecution against the legittmistical press continues: many numbers of the Gazette de Frame, Im Nation, I/i Qaolitlienne, and l/i France, having been seized. Of course the oigans of the opposition call out, " Those September laws!" but neither Thiers nor Barrot appear to notice them, because they aspire alter office, and know the value of those laws to men in power. The affairs of Spain continue in the same unsettled or rather uproarious state as before. The Cortes are prorogued, and will be dissolved. Olozaga fled to Portugal for the sake of avoiding the accusation pending over him. Some say that he returned in secret to Madrid ; others aflirin that he went to Logrono, whose Deputy he was, with a view of getting re-elected, so that he might defend himself in person. Meanwhile Mr. Donoso, accompanied by General Ron de Olano, have arrived in Paris to invite Queen Christina to return tc Madrid, and to take back the guardianship ovei her second daughter Louisa, of which she was de prived in 18-11. 8he is therefore leaving Pa?s ir the beginning of February; but what is she goinf to do there, not being reigning Queen or Regent' It is believed that the French Court tries hard tci persuade her not to return, as her name will be used by contending tactions; but she appears anxious tu see her daughters. Hypocrisy, nothing more; fwi she has proved herself a bad mother; it is herdowry she wunts, which has been stopped byKspartcro. The last month inflicted serious losses upon the artist teal and social world. The celebrated Cnta lain is said to be really dead, although the Patrii contradicts the report. I should not he astonished if she would resuscitate once more; because she has been killed four times within a lew years. Ii was the same with Puganini, who died six times ir one ypar. Mr. Gue one of our best scenery pain ters, Mr. \Vollis( a lawyer, celebrated through his bons mots and his wit, and Mr. .leannin, the i|Uas manager of the Italian Opera, left this vale ol lean for u better world. The ex-king ol Holland is like wise dead; he abdicated the sevbnth Octobre, 1840 and was succeeded by the present king, his son who is married to the sister of the Emperor oi Russia. The deceased king played a conspicuoui part in the principal events of the last fifty years, hut his popularity was much impaired through the confusion in the finances of the kingdom, princi nolltr /in ii lid ei Kir k <i raiiu/ufir * ii/I oLir-l/ .Kililii nir urn. |?uiiy <.aurou uj iivpav.i,i u...v? pensities. by means ol which he left the immense Kitin of three hundredjand twelve million of francs.

Hisnsphey was a cabinet maker, and died in the hicetre ii the greatest misery. France and the world havt to bewail the death of one of the greatest poets o] the age, in the person of Casimir Delavigne, win expired in Lyons on his way to Montpelher, whert lie intended rrsidingduringthe]winfer IIisdiseas? was a kind of languor, which gave Ins numerou; friends great anxiety, although his end was not con sidered to he so near at hand. An hour before he died, he asked his wife, to read hint some chapter! from Walter .Scott's (fjty Mannering, and as hct emotion paused her frequently to stop, he complained thpt she skipped many phrases, and gave the book 'o his son, who is only ten years of age. A few moments after, his head lell upon the cushion and he began to recite some, verses from an unfinished tragedy, Two minutes more, and lie had ceased to live. His body was brought to Paris and buried in the P&re-Lachaise, attended by about six thousand persons, amongst whom were all distinguished men present in the city. Victor Hugo pronounced the oraison funibre, and Dttprez sang the mass. There was no performance at the French Theatre that evening Casimir Delavigne was the greatest tragedian of the present time ; all his pieces met with unbounded favor, principally his crole <|es Vieillartls les enfans d Edouara, Don Juan d'Autriche et Lou in onze. He was equally distinguished us a lyric poet, being the author of les Messcniennes. His statue is going to he placed ill the foyer of the Theatre Frangais, but his greatest monument are his works. Because I am just talking about monuments, 1 will mention, that the statue of the still living Rossini is nearly finished. Mr. Etex is the author, and he refused every compensation for his trouble. The committee consists of Vatel, Auher, Meyerbeer, Donizetti, Duprez, Ary Schefler. and ol others equally celebrated. 'Die principal subscribers are Baron Rothshild, Colonel Thorn, the heirs of Aguado, and Baron Delmar. This is de eidedly the age of monuments j the statues of twenty-four ol the greatest captains ol the ennrirr are to be placed round the arc tie I'ctnile ; Mo Iicra goi nis moiiuineni iwo muuircu years alter his death?and over the house where he whs born, in the rue Richelieu, number thirty-four, figure* a white marble slate, with ai. inscription, put up last month. The death ol Pelavigne canned a second vacancy in the Academic of the Irnmorteln ; the canvassing has already begun, which in rather easy at the present moment, as ten out of forty members are absent. The principal applicants are Cnsiinir Rumour, and the Puke de Pecazes. The lady of the latter has opened her salons in the Luxembourg, and is giving splendid parties. I>orrI (!?* ley, the English ambassador, gave a splendid hall, at which nearly three thousand persons ns-mted. Count Pahlen. the Russian envoye, invited the distinguished ft ussians now in Parts to a national dinnerparty in honor of the birthday of the eiuiioror. His hotel was splendidly illuminated, 'lhe Austrian embassy has not yet been received, and Mr. Rothshild's soirees are interrupted through ihr death of his graitdelnld. ('mint Castcllane does not intend opening In* private theatre ; he tired of the wpiabbleH amongst the performing amateurs, who have found an asylum at Mr. Tudor's, celebrated for lus rich entertainments. Mulard is tuning his violin for the opera halls, and the Salle Vivienne is thoroughly repaired for a set ol soirees, which are to be given there by a society, who number in their ranks very distinguished la HERA a a a 0?<4. dies of the faubourg St. Germain, for the sake of r procuring funds to enable the monks of Mont Car- e niel to rebuild their convent. The small papers i call those soirees religious balls, which will most likely be well attended, us hypocrisy is in the a*- I ceudaut. A friar of the same order astonished the | city last year with a long while heard reaching to i his knees, who went from house to house collect- ? ing money for the same purpose. He got a huu- i dred thousand francs, which do not cover the re- I quired expenses. ? M. de Haber, the celebrated banker from Carls- t ruhe, has published a justification of hij conduct in ] his affairs of honor, which has created a great sen- i nation in the fashionable and commercial circles. ! I think it worth while to give you a lull account of all the circumstances, because they afford a good insight in the morals of certain part- of Germany. 1 luring the water season in Haden,a company, consisting of the principal families of Carlsruhe, got up a splendid ball in honor of the guests, who had congregated in greater number iast summer than in any previous year. Mr. Haber, who is one of die richest men of the country and banker to the court, was denied tin admittance from several of the members, at the head of whom was Mr. Goehler, an officer in the army of the Grand liuke, on the ground of his being an Israelite. The majority of committee, however, were for admitting him, not thinking this reason a good one; hut Mr. Goehler opposed him more on the ground that Haber has been spreading reports highly injurious to the reputation of the Grand Duchess, having boasted of being her lover, and of being in possession of certain letters from her. Mr. Haber denied it most strenously, and considered himself bound to challenge Mr. Goehler, who accepted the challenge, chose Mr. Sacharaga, a distinguished Spaniard, equally in the service of the Grand Duke, as his second, and was killed at the first shot. After the funeral the exasperated jpopulace surrounded Mr. Haber's dwelling, broke into it, destroyed the coeti.. r..;n<n,ltu,l liia In 111 iIv. hv aoostru nhising them with hep, hep? with which name the Jews were quizzed in the middle age; they threatened to burn the houses of the other Jews, and were only dispersed the following day by the police. Mr. Ilaber was arrested, and his papers were seized by the government, but it did not transpire whether any letters Irom the Grand Duchess were found amongst them ; enough. Mr. iiuber was liberated a few days after, but the seconds were arrested, and Mr. Sacharaga was condemned to ten months imprisonment in a fortress; Mr. I'icot, the inspector of the police, was dismissed tor hiH negligence in dispersing the people. A petition was got up for the pardon of Mr. Sacharaga, whose punishment was reduced to one month's imprisonment, and who, hardly liberated, threw up his commission, and challenged Mr. Ilaber for the sake of avenging his friend; they met at the frontier, and Sacharaga shared the fate of Goehler. Mr. Ilaber Hed to Paris, und intends leaving the duchy, which is u great loss to the commercial community and to government, whose agent he is. The < irand Duchess departed for Italy, extremely grieved at the part she played in that unfortunate affair. It these duels had a melancholy end, another duel which ought to have come off in Paris excited universal merriment. A known fashionable, unii versally acknowledged to be a coward, was insulted by a major of the Fench army ; he challenged i the major, hoping that he would refuse, but was cruelly deceived by un acceptance. The seconds fixed the distance at twenty-five paces; but the dandy insisted on fifteen. The seconds remonstrated in vain, that the offence was n small one, but the fashionable was obstinate, und could hardly be i prevailed upon to fight at a distance of twenty paces. They met the next duy at the JJois de Boulogne ; but now were they ustonislicd to see the i dandy muke his appearance with a sword. Gen tlemen, he said, I never light at less than filteen I paces; you have fixed the distance at twenty paces; i very well, but 1 am thefmsulted, and have, of course, r the choice of weapons. 1 chose, therefore, the - small sword. The proposition to fight with a small i sword at a distance of twenty paces created such a ; hilarity and put every body 111 so good spirits, 1 that the major offered an excuse, and our dandy i was overjoyed to pay it good breakfast with chani! pagne at Vcry's. i Mr. Staunton, the champion of the English Chess Club, has vanquished Mr St. Amnnd, the celcbrn> ted French chess player. The terms were, that the winner of the lirst eleven games should be the ' victor. Mr. Staunton won them, against six won - by Mr. .Kt. Amand, and four drawn games. A re! turn match is to be played. The stake was for five , thousand francs and all expenses; but the bets ? were much heavier; nearly all the betters were t English. Mr. Htaunton, who was kept on small i allowance by Ins secord, got the same evening - gloriously drunk. The French papers say, if Mr. i .Staunton is a better chess player, at least Mr. St. i Amand has the advantage of good manners und i tempwMoe. In the literary world there is nothing new; se i verat new novel* nave inane meir appearance, uui they ure not worth mentioning. From the first of ' January several new papers ate to be sturterl. ' Georges Sand intends editing a literary and politi1 cal daily paper, which will most likely succeed, as she Iihs many admirers, and is intimately acquainted with numerous choice spirits, who have promised contributions; Lumenaia will superintend the political department and he the main contribu; tor, from whicn circumstance it is obvious that it will be a republican paper. The German Central Bureau will likewise publish a German radical paper, under the title of I'orwaerti?advance ; but its ' success is more than doubtful, because the censure in Germany will certainly ostracise it, and the " < lermans in Pans prefer reading the French papers. 1 There have already been several similar enterpri' sea, but they have ended in smoke. The Charivari, tliHt true personification of French wit and na* tive nprit is now the property of .Mr. Perre; it was, as is universally known, under the patronage of ' the legitimists, who used it as a. powerful engine to " ridicule Louis Philips and kis governnicnt. lti-j ' dicule is Willi us a more dangerous weapon than j ' serious attacks, as we prefer the ludicrous to the grave. Its influence in less pernicious since political caricatures are forbidden by the September I ' laws.

The manager is negociating with Fanny Elssler, who has been dancing in Vienna, previous to her departure for Milan.

Having heretofore published the "curds" of Me*nrn. Shriver and Dawson in relation to th? difficulty between Weller and Shriver, we now give the following from Hon. Win. Cost Johnson. STATEMENT BY MR. WM. COST JOHNSON. Being called upon to give a statement of my knowledge of the circumstsnce* connected with the uupleastnt attair between Mr. Weller and Mr. Shriver, I * bull do to at briefly u? I can, and to the beat of my recollection. Thin 1* the more necessary n* I find my u?n:e intiodurul iu tlm putilic journals in Connection, rn.ouie <Jegioe; with it. 1 gave Mr. Edward W. Johnson a letter of introduction to Mr. Weller, with whom be was not acquainted. I understood that Mr. Weller declined the interview which Mr. Shriver requested; and that, at the timo Mr. Weller"* friend intimated that an informal meeting could be had by the part lev, which suggettiou Mr. Joburon submitted to Mr. Shriver ami hia frienda for considfiation, ao that he could report the remit. Mr. Shriver and hia frienda thought such a meeting deairable, aa one more legular liad been declined; and deaired Mr. Johnson ao to report, with the qualification that it ahould he at any place w here third persona- men or women?ahould not be < udangered. Mr. Johuatoa stated that it waa thought b y (ieneial Dawson that loma amicable understanding could be hud, and piopoaed that Mr Johnaon and my sell' ahould cull at hi* room at an hour named. Although perceiving no giuund* like!} lor such an adjuatment, 1 felt it to be my duty to ca!l at tbu time appointed. A converaation of aevrrsl hours enitifd without attaining the end; in which conversation no unkind feeling was expressed, no reflection on any of the partiea ; hut, on the contrary, every sentiment of kindness and consideration. Generul Duwaon thought it the duly of the friend* to avoid if possible a hostile meeting ul any kind ; to all which generous feeling 1 and Mr. Johnston responded to with sympathy and cordiality ? I at the astro time slating that 1 could not perceive on what grounds an amicuble adjustment could he had. 'I he basis of such adjustment, however, lie (General Dawson) thought he could lay down arid explain. It waa something like the following: First, if Air. Shriver'* friends pleased, ihey could renew or send a challenge, which he would accept?then it is to be witbdiawn lor explanations. Mr. Shriver to admit error in his course as to hia publication in the rettjot, and impetuosity oi remark in the conversation with Mr. Weller which caused the conflict ; then Mr. Weller could explain aw ay the effects of his assault. The basis stated I dissented from, because I thought that Mr. Hhriver thought hiacouree aa much right and justified aa Mr. Weller did bis. Under audi conviction no satisfactory explanation could he had. To the question which General Dawson put to me :? What docs Mr. Shriver or hia frienda require I I answered, first, a meeting on the usual tcims of u duel. This General Daw son >-uid, could not be had. Then I Mated, secondly, an irregular meeting, to be agreed upon at any place where third persons were not endangered?w eupons equal, to be named, or either party to select such as hi might desire. This General Dawson alio declined. Upon which I stated that the all'air must end aa it stood, so far as I was an adviser. General Dawson staled, however, lhat, if Air. Shriver desired to attack Mr. Weller, he could do it on the street, lietweeu his boarding house and the Capitol, or in the ltotundo. Tothi* I answered that, in the first place, Mr. Shriver would likely be arrested before he could see Mr. Weller in such a conspicuous part of Washington ; but at any rate, 1 could not ne instrumental in arranging such a fight, and especially as I thought that third mid inno cent peisons might lie in as niucheimger ns the j n:ties belligerent. Here the interview terminated. Um it may b? proper for me to my that lien. iJawson made no lellectioii on either Mr. Shriver or Mr. Johnson ; on the cor.tiui y, he disclaimed uny thing of the sort, and expressed, repeat, edly, hia admiration of Mr. Shriver'a courage- a courage so luJlen proven that lie thought he could be justified in acceding to an adjustment upon the. gtounda which U?n. Pawaon had propoaed, and which Mr. iohnaton and m; telf declined. The result of this interview waa reported to Mr. Sliriver, and I informed him that I would neither adviie nor be privy to any turther hostile atepa on hia part, finding, however, that Mr. Shriver had a purpose to attack Mr. Welter at his first meeting with him, and believing that hi; had done everything necessary to vindicate hia character, I tesolved upon my own motion, without the knowledge of Mr. Shtiveror any one, to call on the Mayor and have him hound over to keep the peace. This course I thought due to Mr. Shriver, to Mr. Welter, arid eminently due to the public. And here muat terminate, my connexion with an aflair which I used every exertion to avoid, and which I could not have lieen induced to take any part in, either dirrctly or indirectly, hut from the fact that Mr. Shriver hud been twelve years a constituent and a friend, and that he was a stranger in Washington, possessing a character without reproach, an honor unsullied, and whose courage requires no endorsement from me.
