Burr, Blennerhasset and "Wilkinson.
, An interesting and imp oi tunt chapter
of history is about to be published in tho
Blennerlussot papers. Tho revelation of
the Hurr conspiracy has never been com
plete, nd these papers ror Plenncrhas
et.it if known, kept regularly a journal,
will do much towards the full cxpoiure of
the place and preparations of the ambit
ious traitor. A correspondent of tho New
York Times in this connexion, furnisher,
the following interesting points connected
with tho history of P.urr's great guilt:

maomous ami rainer hruiiani man ap
peared on tho slago of Western politics,
TUis man was Jam Wilkinson, who
eonimar.;d the American array on the St
mwrence in lau. ana who, at the time I
peak of was an officer of the army hold-
ing important posts. In 1787 this man
went first to New Orleans, where lie es
tablished a commercial houso, and then
returned to Kentucky. Louisiana was
then a provmcs of Spain. Tho Spanish
uthoritiei formed the idea of soperating
the western country from the Union, and
making a Spanish empire in the valley of
iue fliissismppi. ror in is purpose they
interested Wilkinson, Judge Sebastian anil
many other leading men in their entor
priso. Tho mor patriotic of the commu
nity utterly rejected the plan ; but there
is no doubt thai many of the leadinc char
acters of Kentucky were implicated in the
'iparnsh Association" which wua then
formed. Judge Sebastian wa tried, and
found guilty of receiving two thousand
dollars per annum from the Spanish gov
ernment. - Wilkinson was also tried, but acquitted
for want of direct evidence. It was prov
ed, however, that he corresponded in cy-
ph r with the Spaniards, and was amply
supplied rith Spanish gold. Passing by
nearly twenty years, we find Wilkinson,
with that singular fatuity which at that
time marked the military appointments of
(MOeverrmeiit, in command of tho army
raTamng Canada on the St Lawrence. He
bad become dissipated and lost his ener
gy. He was drunk ia the cabin of the
boat when the gallant Scott, commanding
the advance, was already in the precincts
Of Montreal, which he could have oasily
taken. Just then Wilkinson ordered a
retroat and the fruiti 0f the campaign
were lost. .Armstrong was then Secretary
of War, and th disgrace of the army was
refloclod upon him. Half a doien yeart
after the New York Review was publish
ed, and in it, Armstrong, who hold a most
austic pen, reviewed the life and eon
4uctof God Jauuea Wilkinson. Taking
pp the Spanish affair and the Burr busi
ness, Armstrong proved inconteetibly
that Wilkinson was either a traitor to hi
country or his friend. On bit trial, how
ever, Wilkinson Lad taken tho last alter
native and excused it on the ground of
Mtraordir.ary I'atriotisn 1 The Spanish
Astociation and the proceedings at the

passed over to Cumberland. In July he

subsequent ones, his associates were James
Wilkinson, Jonathan Dayton, John Smith
(Senator from Ohio,) Andrew Jackson,
Samuel Swartwaut, Herman Blennerhas

men of reinurkable speculative enterprise
and in their subsequent cureer have been
somewhat known to the people of the
United Slates, James Wilkinson has been
exliihiied as a reckless, dissipated, un
principled man, John Smith was expelled
from the U.S. Senate. Samuel Swartwaut
became a notorious defaulter. Jonathon
Dayton was a notorious land speculator.
Herman Blennerhosset went forth a ruin

have at this lime as large a proportion of
corrupt, reckless men as there were in the
time of Adams and Jefferson. The truth
is that for many years subsequent to the
Revolution, tho word honor was substitu
ted for all viitue and all religion. Burr
and his companions were men of honoi?
It was simply to keep faith with their
hoop companions, and be ready to fight a
duel if they did not. Tho barbarism of
"honor" has disappeared, and among men
of character the higher and better motive
of religious principle has taken i'.s place.
The Toll Gate of Life.
We are all on our journey. The world
through which we are passing is mi some
respects like a turnpike all alonir wnich
Vice and Folly have erected toll-gates for
the accommodation of those who choose
to call as they go and there are very few
of till the host of travelers, who do not
occasionally stop a little at some one or
another of tliem and consequently pay
more or less to the toll gatherers. Pay
more or less I say, becauso there is a great

Orangemen, and their History.
Tho following sketch of tho origin of
the Order which has recently created such
i disturbance in the Arrangements made
' for the reception of tho Princj of Wales
in Canada, is taken from the I'.rooklyn
I Eagle, and conveys a historical idea of the
organization, which may not bo familiar
j to tho public generally.
The Orangemen of Ireland dato their
existence from tho year 1088, and name
, themselves alter William, Prince of Or
unge, SUdt holder of Holland ; and King
of England under the name of William
IH. Alter the death of Charles II. of
EngUnd, hisbrothei, James II., ascend
ed the throne. Charles lived a Protes
tant, but in heart ho alternated between
Deism and Cutliolicity ; when well he was
a deist, when hick he inclined to be a Cuth
olic. On his death bed he refused the
ministrations of the ministers of the
Church ot England ; a priest of the Catho
lic Church was surreptitiously convoyed
into his chamber uiid the dissolute Charles
died in that-faith. His brother James
openly professed that religion, and before
ho had been a year on tho throne he
turned tho whole influence of the govern
ment to tho re-establishment of Cutholi
cy. Tho whigs and lories united in ins
vitingover William, Prince of Orange,
who had married Mary, duughter of
James. He landed with 15,000 men.
James fled from his kingdom without a
struggle in its defence, and llliam, con
jointly with his wife, occupied the vacant
throne. Jrcluud and Scotland, with a de
votion utterly worthy of better cuiue,
adhered to the fortunes of James, and in
10811 ho lan Jed in Ireland with a small
French army, and assisted by the native
Irish, he nearly regained possession of
that portion of his dominions.
The piotestants of Ireland, or perhaps
more strictly speaking, the pres'oy terians
of Ireland, took refuge within tho cities
of Enniskillen and Londonderry. The
forces of Jamus were concentrated on tho
two devoted cities. The (Jovernor of

sent to tlio royal camp, and the to-vn was
defended by the people under the lead of
a clergyman named Walker, with a reso
lution never surpassed. Proposition after
proposition of James was received by tho
peoplo famishing with hunger, with ries
of "no surrender." The people were
starving; the flesh of horses, dogs, cats,
and of rats even, was a luxury purchasa
ble scarcely by money. The only hope
for the devoted town, was the arrival of
succor from England. Across the river
was placed a boom by James' army ; the
river was ulso commanded by cannon.
The ships at length appeared in sight of
the town ; one ot them succeeded in
breaking the boom, and ir. escaping the
cannonade. The Irish army raised the
Hieg-, and the Protestant stronghold was
saved. The prentice boys of 1'crry who
took a prominent part in the defence,
took the name of Orange boys. The next
year William landed in Ireland, and de
feated the army of James at the battle of
Boyno. Prominent among the forces of
William were the defenders of Perry, now
known as 'Orangemen.' The Irish re
trieved a name sadly tarnished at the
Boyno in defending Limerick. A capit
ulation was effected: the Irish army had
a choice of going to France, and entering
the service of Ix)uis XIV., or of joining
tho army of William. Tliey for the most
part chore the former alternative; and
they left Ireland prontralo at tiio feet of
England The conquest and exhaustion

The policy of England bus changed. But
the Orangemen hold on with tenacity to
the system which placed in their hands
power and influence, and left at their feet
the subject race; evcty concession to the
mass ot tho people has been resisted by
them. From being the tool of the gov
ernment they have become its chief ob

forms in the administration of Irish affairs.
