I iwk your sympathy?your condolence, in my cruthng affliction, my ticry trial. I cannot depict to you the nguish I endure at being (hue arraigned lor a crime, the ery thought of which crimsons my cheek with imiignaiou, nor can I convey the slightest idea of the torture rith which I find myself so much the object of publicity, shrink within the shade of retirement and sec'.usion, iut unhappy circumstances impel me forward, for I have >eon so overwhelmed by the appearance of my letters in he public prints, aa accumulation of mortification added o other causes of agony which I did not anticipate, that hava thought it but justice to myself, to give you, my riend, a statement of my whole acquaintance with the ndividual so unfortunately associated with me, in order hat it may furnish some palliation of my indiscretion. The commencement of my acquaintance with Mr. loyt was under the following circumstances:? A letter was addressad to me under an anvelope to Mr. loyt, and this letter was transmitted to me by h'm. Up o this time I had never exchanged a word with Mr. loyt in my life. The contents ef this letter rendered it leceisary that 1 should seek a few words of explanation vith him. I was reluctant to maka this the subject of a etter to him, and therefore 1 addressed him a note revesting to see him at my own house concerning this natter. In my first interview with Mr. Hoyt, of which have spoken, be requested my permission to visit me igain. To this I readily consented, and as he suggested he propriety of our being formally introduced in >so:iety, in order that our recognition might be public, I icceded to bis proposal of meeting bim at Mr Moran's ooms (where he told me, he was sitting for his minia:ure) in company with Miss A. C., from whom he said he would solicit an introduction to me. From this time his risits to me were verv frenuent. In in in??rvi?w in ih? >arly stage olQ our acquaintance, I palliatod some exireuion inadvertently used in ona of my first note* to lim, in which I had alluded to a feeling el deaolation. l'o thii he replied, that my unhappiness wai the theme af public discussion, and was not a truth he had guessed from my note, but one he had learned from hii observation of my countenance before he had formed my acquaintance. Encouraged by my casual allusion to this lubjoct (indiscreetly made on my part, as 1 am ready to confess) iu our association together, he would frequently advert to my situation as one of exquisite misery, picturing to me my husoand's indifference, repeating unkind and cruel words, which, he said, say husband had us. d of me in the most public places, and assuring me that his alienation and coldness to me, his wife, was the subject of remark in societv. This naturally incensed me against my husband, and made me regard him most unkindly. From the sympathy ho expressed for me, entering into all my sorrows, with the utmost depth of feeling, our confidence became very trustful, and we conversed together with great unreserve. Such intercourse continued for some time, and thus was 1 unconeioutly and imperceptibly prepared to lend my ear to an 1 avowal of attachment from which I would have revolted had it been preceded by lets insidious preface. Shortly subsequently to this crisis, my husband received an anonymous note, which he promptly showed me. I This circumstance precluded Mr. Hoyl's visits to mv own House, notwithstanding the testimony to the contrary; lor, alter this, he never crossed the threshold of my door. And hero I cannot forhear touching upon one part ot the testimony, which affirms that I was " locked up" in s certain pat lor for a number of hours. It is true 1 had t treral interviews with Mr. Hoyt in No. ID, the room referred to, but those who ere familiar with the location of the rooms at the Exchange Hotel, will readily recognize this apartment as one of the most public in the establishment. It is well known also that persons wishing ll>T pi ivary in so public a pieoe. always secure themselves against intrusion In accordance with this practice the door was fastened, as 1 knew my association with Mr Hoyt was li?blo to remark, and 1 waa not desirous of my huterview with him becoming the subject of public reprehension. I was there merely for private conversion. and the contents ef those unfortunate letters will at jwnce testily, that such conversation, without the pollution of crime, was sacret in its nature Why, then, should any one who has aotad thoughtlessly, but virtuously, ba bianded with odium, and circumstances be tortured and garbled to lasten the foul sin upon me? i There is other testimony which has so utterly shocked ?so entirely amazed me, that I am at loss for words to refute it. If I could snatch a sunbeam from i heaven, that would scarcely be burning and bright enough, to register my innocence of such foul, loathsome , accusations My Uod my Ood ! wilt thou suffer the , wretch to live who could pronounce such words?such , bsse, dark, designing lies? They are black enough to , have emanated irom the?bottomlese pit?wicked enough ( to have issued from hell Itself. I wonder the tongue that | pronounced them was not palsied, scorched, scathed by the instant lightning of Ood's wrath ! In all my indis- , cretions, in the most glaring of my arrors, 1 have always i remembered I was a lady ?my virtue has not been wreck- | ed, nor have 1 forgotten for one instant that delicacy which is innate within the breeat of woman. So mon- , strou* a talo is too shocking, too abhorrent for human belief. My absence from Richmoud during May and Juna, 1846, when I was in the city of New York, end the fact of Mr Hoyt being an entire stranger to me in the summer of 1846, (as our acquaintance only commenced the winter of that year.) at once puts the seal of lalsehood, gross falsehood, upon the abhorrent testimony to which I havejust alluded. Is it not strange that when my let- I ten reler to every interview I ever had with him, there < should be no allusion, not even the moit remote, to the meetings which ere ao vilely attributed to me? I use strong and emphathic terms, but I feel indignation uncontrollable that such foul aspersions should be I thrown so undeeei ledly upon me. As my personal interviews with Mr. Hoyt were sus wjuuou, aii?r me anonymous communication to my hut- 1 band, our correspondence then commenced. Afterward*, I and at hie suggestion, we were in the habit of meeting at j the Exchange, mo*Uy in the pnblic parlor, but two or ' three time* in No. 18 (a pnblic eitting room) and once at Mr. Hoyt's request in41, (a private parlor,) he *aying we ' hould not there be *o liable to remark a* in the common ' drawing room of the hotel. I met him afterward* in the ' *ame room, myiolf auggeiting it I waa imenaibly lnred < from the path of rectitude by (edoctive tow* of eternal 1 devotion, and hearkening to auch protestations, a reapon- I aire feeling awoke in my own boeom?I felt a faith, a 1 truat in him too Arm to be shaken, and without pausing | to refiect I rnahed on, wrecking and ruining my happi- < naa* by my own act. Hi* manner and word* aiwaya I wrought on me the deaired effect, of more traatful coafi- 1 dance; and proteatationa and evidence* auch aa theae, ] hurried me along with fatal precipitation. A nature like > my own, capable of the deepeat feeling, and trembling leat tuch feeling be unappreciated by the object on which ( it ha* oeen lavished, iaoften exhibited in my correapon i deuce with him. Every doubt, every fear waa answered by naaurances of undying devotion and unanawering 1 fei'.h. Much vowa fed and nourished my fatal attachment | until I became recklesa of public oenaure and prepared < to encounter it for his sake. < After the interception of my letters by Colonel Myers, ( 1 considered my association with Mr. Hoyt forever end- < ed. I waa closely, watched,and had no means of communication with him. A day or two after this event, Mr. 11. sent me a package by hie servant, with a measage to the , effect that he would have written to mo, but knowing . my situation ho feared an interception of his note. He ( besought me to write to him by the messenger. On Mon- j day 1 received e letter Drum bim, saying he bed been un- , dcr my window for two nights, hoping to see me; he an- j closed me a card add wrote me ho would be at Dr. 'a, , 11.1 ><re I was staying.) at a particular hour ^iat night, when 1 must have a latter in readiness for him, which j waa to be attached to a cord and lowered from the . window, and ho in like manner would transmit to me a t communication from himself. Finding that he had mis- , taken the situation of my room, I, in acceding to his sug- , gested plan, appointed him a window in front, where I , c.ouM receiup the proffered communication, and return to . him the package I should prepare for him In one of these 1 letter! he promised to continue hi* correspondence with t after my departure from Richmond, provided it could be , arranged with safety, saying it would be bis only solace , n absence. He then requested ma most importunately , to destroy every line he had ever written me, knowing I , htft numberless letteraof hi* In mv possession. This I pro- y miied unhesitatingly and performed, without one distrust- ( ful thought, and thus I robbed my self'of evidence which . might have palliated my error. Since my own letters, J sacred aa I daemed them, have boon committed to the prose, for the gaze and taunts of the unfeelmg multitude, dees it harmonize with justice, . thus to deliver up to public print one portion of a correspondence, while the other pert, which induced it, , i* shrouded forever from publicity 1 To my Judgment lis an act of injuatice, from which I should imagine ! ovary humane heart would revolt with abhorrence ? . Having unfortunately deprived myself of every lino J which prompted such passionate expressions of affection, ! I am unabla to contrast with mine, those professions of ! equal w armth and equal fervor, which I was accustomed , to receive, end which might have ex cosed the tone of my ! replies. The letter intercepted and most fortunately pre served by my lathee, is the only one from Mr. Hoyt which appear* in comparison with my own, though fiom it one can easily gather that I waa not the only actor in the correspondence, nor the only source fro id which emanated profession* of devotion and epithata of endear, ment. I wrote ie the very sanctuary of confidence, never dreaming that another eye should behold those evidences of my feelings, hut the ono for whom such vow* wore registered; and yet in the very secret and shadow of such confidential intercourse, mark how often I appeal to him for my purity?my guilelossnoss ; "your pure and ,notices V."?"you know the purity ol th'* heart"?"you knew not one impure thought has ever dwelt there"? , ' In the pre so bo* of Hoe vest itself, I could swetr that this 't srnm ?* a* free from tulle, Iroe from impurity, a* an [ ; i\ e NEW * angel's, and rather than loaa that purity, that delicacy which I know ii the jewel ef my character I would far rather lota life Itself?"arery thought of thie heart la a? pure, at spiritual, at Hear en itself"?" Although the world may accuse us, yet in our own hearts we hare the consciousness ol innocence, and that will sustain us " la it reasonable that such cipressiona as these would have found tiieir way into such confidential communication if one Main ?f guilt, one spot of peliution. had marred my intercourse with him la it reasonable 1 should thus hare pointed to my purity, unleaa I had basn spotless, unblemiahrd?

There arc circumttancei tu extenuation of thia On the day after Mr Myert' dep irture lor the north, Mr. Hoyt asked me when 1 should write to mv huiband On my replying " the following dev." he said " remember, it i* important that your letter ihould he couched in the moit affectionate tenni." 1 remarked, "I thought auch advice from him lingular and inexplicable." He replied. " you have alwayi been in the habit of writing to him affectionately, and were your letten now characterized by ooldnen. hie luipicioni might be excited ae to the cauie " When I penned thoie wordi to my huiband I really felt Juit aa I wrote, for when I wai with him, or in correspondence with him, my conscience reproached me for the wrong I was doing him. and at such moments 1 felt kindly and tenderly towards him. There is one point in this fatal correspondence which I wish to rectify in your eyes, and that is the entanglement offray sister's names in some of the letters. They were both unsuspicious of the nature of my association with Mr. Hoyt?L. was entirely unaware of the nature of my correspondence with him, and my elder sister, ignorant even of the fact of my acquaintance with him, beyond the mere casual speaking acquaintanceship, of formal, fashionable intercourse. Thus, my dear friend, have I given you all the particulars of an association which nas ended so fatally for one of its actors?so unhappily, so unfortunately, for the other?for 1 am now mourning over the ruins of my domestic peace, which my own nand assisted to demolish. Yet even in this hour of gloom and of darkness, while the storm rages around me, and even the voice of pity is hushed by the tumultuous tempest of public reprobation, 1 find my conscience serene amidst the billows, for that conscience whispers unceasingly to my agonized heart, that of crime, of guilt, I am as sinless as a seraph before Ood's throne?and in that great day of retribution, when all secrect thoughts and secret feelings shall be uncovered. my purity shall be read in bright characters by those who now condemn me. Crushed and overwhelmed as I now am, the world feels authorized to hurl the most oruel accusations against me: but God is my refuge from man's violence, and 1 live in the abiding hope that the hour will come when 1 shall be regarded as a deeply injured and greatly wronged woman. I have been keenly affected by the recent reception of two anonymous letters, couched in the kindest terms, breathing all the fragrance of sympathy, and assuring me that the belief of my innoo ince is indelibly stamped on many hearts. Oh, with what thankfulness, with what tearful gratitude, did I dwell on those kind and tender expression! The world cannot know the bleeding heartfit lacerates by unworthy suspicion, undeserved condemnation, or its hand would be stayed. You, my friend, who have known me from my earliest childhood, have watched my girlhood melting into the maturity of woman, smiled at the bright hap piness of my early married life, you |will not refuse to shed the tear of sympathy over the wrock of my earthly prospects. You remember me as 1 was in the fresh rural shades of my youthfol home, but transplanted to the atmosphere of fashionable life, the freshness of my feelings withered, and though virtue has stood steadfast?immovable amid all allurements, I have seen the death of that buoyancy of spirit, which once aucireisu me, lor ine narsnness Ol IBS world DM now trampled, bruiaed, and for ever crushed it. May God enable me to bear my trial meekly, assured that high Heaven will not always shroud the pure innocence of Your afflicted friend, VIRGINIA MYERS. Varieties.

Theatrical*?Polttici? The Spanish Martiagee?Ireland | The subject, no doubt, most interesting to you ia tlie state of the provision market, though it it to be prelumed wheat and other grains haoe attained ttieir maximum on your tide of the water. The rite in pricet it maintained here, and it it the general opinion will continue unabated eren, until the next harrest. American flour rote within the lait few days from lit to lit per barrel, and Indian meal from lit the quarter to Mi. The latter article it vary tcarce, and in great demand at Liverpool (Or Irish consumption When it ia conaidered how unuaually productive the late wheat harreat waa throughi out the country, and what quantitiea of wheat in bond ) were liberated by the repeal of the corn lawi (exceeding tixteen million bushela). and alto the quantitiea imi ported, this great and continuing riae it rather surprising. Meantime, there ii-a general outcry againat the continuance of the temporary import duty, and there it no doubt that mlniitert have determined to open the porta at toon at Parliament staemblei, which will be in about a fortnight. It it, indeed, an outrage upon common tenae, to be offering up prayert in all the chnrchea against the famine, by government ordera. and at the tame time to check the importation of food by government dutiea.. Another strange anomaly exhibited in thii oritit it the fact, that while Ireland it auffering under aciuai lamina, yei waeai, oais, ana ouiar provisions, art regularly exported from Ireland to Liverpool, and aa regularly quoted in the market An active exportation ie alio going on to foreign countrlea in, the midat of the famine panic. It ia to be inppoaed that the law* of com-, mercial profit preponderate overallother conaiderationa ai they naturally will do at all timei. The acarcity upon the Continent of Europe ia eaid to be auch, that it it in contemplation to call an extraordinary diet at Frankfort to conaider the necetiitiet of the German Statea. Meantime, aome large fleeta of transports, with wheat Irom the Boephorue, are ci? route to Trieste and the porta of the Euxine, for the supply of the Auatrian Empire. Although there ie much discontent exiating among the messes in France, on account oi the riae in price of bread, and tome slight disturbance* have broken out in aome of the department*, yet there i* not the aame extent of suffering in France at in other countries, owing in groat measure to the cautious prudence and foresight of Louia Philippe. He hat let loose upon the markets the stores he ha* been gathering for years past, of wheat and other grain. Thus, at it were, an artificial and supplementary harvest it made to come to the aid of the present yoar1* deficient harvest, and by a Judicious distribution nullifies its bad effects and prevents bread from reaching a famine prico. This cautious and prudent monarch has herein shown his sagacity and knowledge of the French people, for he well knows be could not hope to sit long upon hit throne in security, if the people could not get bread at the usual prices. He could not satisfy the Parisian* unlets he kept the price of bread low enough for the working classes, and this he hat always, since he ascended theftbrone, managed to do wPh great skill; this it singular, but true One immediate effect of the potato famine in Ireland, is that the people there aow eat bread, a food to which they have been hitherto but little accustomed ; ovens arc built where ovens were never known belore, and in consequence of the bread-baking, journeymen bakers are in such demand, and are so scarce, that their wages, which in former years were about 14s per week, have risen aa high at Ma, and in tome places 34s and more. A more remote effect of the same famine of potatoes will be the extensive cultivation of rye in lieu of potatoes. The land* which formerly were dedicated te potatoes are now being very generally town with rye-, the teed ia liberally tupplied to all who will get their lands ready for it. Formerly large supplies of rye came from the Baltic, but this year the rye ciop ha* failed in the north of Germany and tn Norway. Owing to this failure, the Black 8ea, Canada, and tho United States, are the only place* from whence supplies can be derived. But heavy complaints come in from Canada to the colonial department or government, that they are losing their tiado under the action of free trade. And why T Because they cannot compete with the energy and .skill of the American trader, in the flour market especially ; for a barrel of flour is shipped from New York at 3s. and even more, cheaper than can be done from Canada. The Cambria arrived on the 14th, bringing interesting intelligence of American affair*. (By the bye I did not receive my papers by her.) Great fears were entertai/ied for her safety and the l^ueen of the West. We have had terrible gale* on the coast and many wrecks. All hope* of getting oil' the Great Britain are abandoned; there she lies in Duodrum' bay, a magnificent apectacle of splendid ruins, with her five masts, exciting the ad ; miruuon ami griet ai all wbo ?e? her.

I am inclined to believe that whatever may hsve led t - it, there it no real foundation tor the allegation Von will know ail about it, as I too you have your coi re spondents there. We are all on the gui vivt to hear of a groat battle at Montarey. By this time, no doubt, it is all stalo now* with you; but it will be new to us when it comet. There was a great hoax playad off by the morning Chronicle of the nth Oct, to wit, that peace was concluded between the United States and Mexico, with a lot of atrsnge particular*. It was pretended to be brought by a steamer from Vera Cruz to Havre, but obtained no credit, and was thought to be a ttook exchange trick, ludead, there has been an indescrible clamor for some weeks past in the share market, in rospect of the Mexican loan conversion schema, and the subsequent repudiation of tbe plan by the new gov eminent. When it ia considered tbat above sixty millions of dollars are owing to the people of Kngland by Mexico, and tho bad fsith exhibited by the Mexicans, under every government, it is not surprising'that not the least sympathy is felt lor them here by the public. You may do what you please with them; K.ngland will look on with satisfaction to see them punished as they deserve. Ruined they cannot be, for that they are already, and long have been. As a nation, they afford a melancholy illustration that tho old proverb? " honesty is the best policy"?ia strictly truo, as well in respect of nation* as of individnal*. Surely, Mr Polk, from tho success whioh^hss attended his presidency, in military transactions, mav deserve the rnennman ?f " Felix." What a wonderful aspect of American enter priee and courage ! Four armiea en routs in different direction* upon Mexico, an advance within 130 league* of the capital ! Her fleet* surrounding the eountrv ! California Americanized, he. he ! Such ia the view which open* on reading the account* of American new* by the laat pocket. Terhap* the moat interacting event in commercial matters, is a great movement, which i* now being made bv the combined anergic* of the commercial claaaea, to obtain a repeal of the English navigation law*, which inbject American trade, eipecially, to the moat painful and onerou* restraint*. The burden of these restriction* chieflv falls upon American traders, and they are justly considered highly impolitic and unnecessary, and that tbey cannot be maintained against the United States There is a strong hop* that tnev will speedily be repealed. The monetary system of the East India Company has excited some discontent, and called up the attention of commercial men; and it is hoped a reform may, by Jint of perseverance, be effected. It is a system of hypothecation, or newn-shop plan, the company advancing money on goods stored in the warehouses of the Compendia the East Indies, leading to a system ol bill drawing, injuriously affecting the rates of exchange and commercial transactions, and producing all the disorders which flow from disorderly speculation.

In Manchester, a rain effort is being made to keep down the price of cotten. Rather than buy at present rates, many manufacturers preier to curtail their works. Trade, in consequence, is bad.

In theatrical affairs, the note* of preparation between the two rival epera companies are beginning to souod; 8rest efforts arc being mad* on both sides to engage the rst artists. Drury Lane is going on prosperously, with that brilliant artist, Mad'e Anna Bishop. It was, perhaps, to her disadvantage that she made her debut in Ball*'a opera, the " Maid of Artois," In the same part in which the admired and regretted Malibran so advantageously appeared. Though not equal to her, yet she ha* succeeded in winning the warmest approbation of the several London critics. The fUsleys also are engaged this season at Drurv Lane. The it James' Theatre opens next month with some aelcbrated French actors. The Hay market has improved in its selection of pieces; when Mis* ( ashman appears it will bear away the palm. Covent Garden, and the Queen's Opera, will open simultaneously in the early spring montha Then comes the tug of war, in which it is feared both parties will fall prostrate sod ruined.

The breach between r I France and England widens daily. L.

Faucit is incapable, from severe illness, of fulfilling any of her provincial engagements. The " Blood Red Knight," which ran an entire season at Astlev's Amphitheatre, brought the proprietors ?18,000. " Tern and Jerry" realised a profit on the first season alone of ?l i,M0. It is rumored in asnsioal circles that Mr. Braham will take his farewell of professional life during the ensuing summer, first making a final tour of the provinces, which will, of course.be iaamenaelv productive; as do one with a spark of feeling would omit the opportunity of hearing, for the last time, a man who has been the as- f( toniahinent of three successive generations, and who is 4| as unapproachable in his art now as he was sixty years : ago. The death of hia daughter's husband, the Karl of _ Waldegrave, without issue, renders it no longer neces- (j nary that he should pursue hia labors, se far as the wel- 0 fare of his family is concerned, as the countess is ona- tj bled to provide for them ; for although the earl was by H no means rich, as was apparent from the sale of htrawberry hill, her jointure is considerable, and so is the nro- . pertjr derived fiom her former husband, his lordsliip'i n naif brother, John James Waldegrave, Ksq. r The London correspondent of the Albion, in noticing ( the performance of Balfe's " Maid of Artois," at Drury ? lane, says:?"In this opera, your townsman, Weiss, has made large strides in the estimation of the metropoli- r tan critics, by the mode in which he renders the buffo c a'r,' Was there ever known,' a song that is not exactly tl suited to the most advantageous display of his fine organ, r but which he sings with a freedom and vigor that have f, characterized nearly all his efforts since the hit he made o in ' Don Quixote,' first emboldened him to put forth fully e the great artistic powers he possesses. There is no basis l< on tbe stage to be compared to him, and it will be his own fault if his supremacy in that walk of his profession is not * as speedily recognized by the publio at large, as it has tl long been admitted by those most competent, from pri- o vate experience of bis ability, to judge of it " ti If we may trust the aecuracy of Karl Ontzkow, a German dramatist, who has recently given his impressions of ci I'.iris, Mademoiselle Rachel, the wonderful actress, has a. some rather strange propensities. The celebrated feuilletonist, Jules Jsnin, is made to speak as follows:?"It's all ti over with her," said he; "she has left off study, she revels ii the night through, she drinks grog, smokes tobacco, and ri intrigues by wholesale. She gives toireri, where people a appear in their shirt-sleeves. Since she has rome of age, 1< it's all np-with her. She has become dissipated." c A correspondent of the n says:?"If you judge ' by the newspapers, you will fancy that all London is * mad about Mrs. Bishop; that she is escorted nightly ? from Diury-lSM to her lodgings in Jermyn street, by ? crowds or musical maniacs; and that Dothlng else is ? talked or thought of. But there is nothing substantial in T all these effected raptures. She made a very successful ? debut, in the "Maid of Artois." on Thursday night, and *j was equally succoesfol in the same piece on Friday " night; but that is all that naad be said about it She is mistress of her art as far as music goes, is an excellent ' actress, and can do almost anything with her voice, such ? as it is, that can be learnt; but all comparison with Mali- ? bran, is simply absurd to those who hgvo any remem- ' bra nee of that genius."

This, however, is very much like "halloing before you get out of the woods"? c there is much political discontent smothering in France, a and the cry for reform in the elections is beginning to , be heard. It is said that his own ministers are ? discontented at finding themselves mere unmeaning pup- e pets, as well as the chambers, while the King alone t is every thing, and does as he will, originating every ? measure, and leaving to them nothing but the risk and [ t danger ef responsibility for what are nis own individual 1 , acts. That France has long supported the Jesuit party 1 [ in Switzerland is well known. This party has received i . a great check by the revolution which has broken out at Geneva. It was a battle for a vote. Oeneva refused to , vote at the Diet against the Jesuits, and by that means r their success was assured; now, the predominating party at Oeneva is overthrown?the vote of the canton 5 will be cast against them by the liberal party, which has j succeeded in wresting their power from them. But there is little denbt that, before the new government has time to act on measures' responding to the wishes of the people, France, by her intrigues, corruption, and the show ' of a formidable force on the frontiers, will succeed in re- ' establishing a state of things suitable to its own policy <1 and the ambitious views of the Jesuits. For this pur- ( pose troops are already on the march from Paris c to Geneva, and there is no doubt that Austria, at least, will unite with Franee In this interven- < tion, and that the Swiss cantons, (or United States, r of Switzerland, for such they are,) will be mo- ) dolled, and their government settled in a way, satisfacto- F ry to their despotic and Jealous neighbors, who cannot a hear or submit to the view of a popular and democratic 1) preponderance, in the midst of a people bordering upon < their dominions. The example of liberty so close te ? them, would be as dangerous as it would be hateful to 1 them. ? Ireland is comparatively tranquil.
