Burr, Blennerh&sset and Wilkinioa.
An interesting and imp ortnnt chapter
of history in about lo bo published in the
Hlcnnerhassot papers. The revelation of
tho Burr conspiracy has never been com
plete, end those papers for Blennerhas
sel.it U known, kept regularly a journal,
will do much towards the full exposure of
the place and pieparations of the ambit
ious traitor. A correspondent of the New
York Times in this connexion, furnishes
the following interesting points connected
with the history of Burr's great guilt.
Beforo Hltnnerhnsset first came to Am
erica, and whilo Hurr was yet a young
lawyer ir. New York, another intriguing,
ambitious and rather brilliant man ap
jiearel on the stage of Western politics,
This man was James Wilkinson, who
commanded the American army on the St
Lawrence in 1813. and who, at the time I
speak of was an officer of the army hold
ing important posts. In 1787 this man
went first to New Orleans, where he es
tablished a commercial house, and then
returned to Kentucky. Louisiana was
then a province of .Spain. The Spanish
authorities formed the idea of seperating
the western country from the Union, ana
making a Spanish empire in the valley of
the Mississippi. For this purpose they
interested Wilkinson, Judge Sebastian and
many other leading men in their enter
prise. The more patriotic of the commu
nity utterly rejected the plaa ; but there
is no doubt that many of the leading char
acters of Kentucky were implicated in the
"Spanish Association" which was then
formed. Judge Sebastian was 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
pher with tho Spaniards, and was amply
supplied with Spanish gold. Passing by
nearly twenty years, we find Wilkinson,
, with that aincular fatuity which at that
i time marked the military appointments of
k i . . - . . .
I , tbe Government, in command ot the army
; invading Canada on the Bt Lawrence, He
'had become dissipated and lost his ener
,ey. He was drunk in the cabin of the
jboat when tbe gallant Scott,' commanding
the advance, was already in the precincts
of Montreal, which he could have easily
taken. Just then Wilkinson ordered a
retreat, and the fruits of the campaign
ere lost. Armstrong was then Secretary
Xt War, and the disgrace of the army was
reflected upon him. , Half a dozen year
after the New York (teview was publish
ed, and in it, Armstrong, who held a most
ustio pen, reviewed the life and eon
duct of Gen James Wilkinson. Taking
up tho Spanish affair and the Burr busi
oss, Armstrong proved incontestibly
that Wilkinson was either a traitor to his
country or his friend. On his trial, how-
ver, Wilkinson had taken the last alter
native and excused It on the ground of
extraordinary patriotisa 1 The Spanish
Association and the proceedings at the
time constitute the preliminary chapter
to the Burr affair.
Burr, after the death of Hamilton, dis

o building un an empire on the Wes tarn
merely refer to the sort of characters Burr
dealt with especially as some of these
persons have become historical. On the
IlthofJuly 1S0-I, Burr shot Hamilton.
On the 2d of March, 1805, he took his
celebrated leave of the Senate. On tho
20th of April he was at Pittsburgh. FrortJ
Pittsburgh he went down the Uhio, and
passed over to Cumberland. In July he
spent a week with Andrew Jackson a
man, said Burr, in many points after my
own heart, in the course of this trip and
subsequent ones, his associates were James
Wilkinson, Jonathan Dayton, John Smith
(Senator from Ohio,) Andrew Jackson,
Samuel Swailwaut, Herman Blonnerhas
set, Comfort Taylor, Ac, These were all
men of remarkable speculative enterprise
and in their subsequent career have been
somewhat known to the people of (lie
United States, James Wilkinson has been
exhibited as a reckless, dissipated, un
principled man, John Smith was expelled
from the U.S. Senate. Samuel Swartwnul
became a notorious defaulter. Jonathon
Pay ton was a notorious Innd speculator.
Herman Blennerhnwt went forth a ruin
ed man, and bis wife was buried in Ne-y
ork by the charity of nn Irish Society.
Andrew Jiickson was, by the hnttle of New
Orleans, made Presiuent of tho United
a deist, when sick he inclined to Le a Cuth
olic. On his death bed he refused the
ministrations of tho ministers of the
Church of Kngland ; a priest of the Catho
lic Church was surreptitiously conveyed
into his chamber and the dissolute Charles
died in that faith. His brother James
openly professed that religion, and before
ho bad been a year on the throne lie
turned the whole influence of Die govern
ment to tho re-establish men t of Catholi
cy. The whigs and toiies united in ins
vilingover William, Prince of Orange,
who had married Mary, daughter of
James. He landed vt ith 15,0(10 men.
James tied from his kingdom without a

Tho piotestants of Ireland, or perhaps
more strictly speaking, the presoyteriuns
of Ireland, took rcfugo within the cities
of F.nniskillcn and Londonderry. The
forces of Jamos were concentrated on the
two devoted cities. The Governor of
