{1 he following F.xtri& was ilToed from this
office, in a lafl evening—
Ext raft of a letter from a Gentleman in
Lancaster, to the Editor of the Gazette
of tlx United States, dijted last evening
(December 1.)
" This day the House of Representa
tives, (notwithstanding the many pro
testations to the cohfrary) agreed to the
bill from the Senate, which dire&s that
eight persons should be nominated from
each house, out of which a choice of
fifteen electors lhoulcl be made, by joint
vote. The nomination has already taken
place, and the electoral election, will
commence to-morr6wat 12 o'clock. —>
On the part of the House of Represen
tatives, the following persons are nomi
nated :
Nominated by the Senate,
Mfjjrs. GEORGE F.GE,
Samuel King, Tellar.
" The Demo's we suppose, will strike
at Mr. Coleman—but that is immaterial.
The others are all equally fouml> for
Adams and Pinckney."
From the closing paragraph, of my
observations in last Monday's paper,l put
myfelf under the engagement of lixing
the charge of disfranchifing the Hate,
upon the Democrats, in the House of
Representatives, but it appears that even
their hardihood has shrunk from this
responsibility, and that we are likely to
have electors chosen upon just priuciplcs,
I fulpend or relipquilh my further pur
suit of the fubjedt, recalling the attention
of the public, however, to the fadts anu
arguments I hyve adduced," tofhew that
the true foundation of the controversy
between the two houses on-this occasion,
is the systematic design of the Demo
crats in the House of Reprelentatives,
to force the bounds of the constitution,
overthrow the Senate, afl'ume all power,
and declare themselves permanent. —
This the annals of mankind prove to have
been the invariable maVch of democracy,
from the flrft inftitutioh of civil govern
Important Day !
This day decides the grand, the im
.portant qucftion, respecting our Chief

Although some time mult eiapfe ere the
official returns can be known, we can in
full confidence greet the Federal Repub
licans, those genuine friends to Liberty
and the People, on the election of those

The Hon. JOHN ADAMS, Esq.
The Jacobins of Charleston, S. C.
it appears, have determined to contest
the recent election of certain Federal
gentlemen in the State Legislature
this movement of the Jacos has an ob
jeft in view of more importance, than a
feat in that house.
The pre-concerted plan has doubtless
been conrununicated to the Jacobins
here, hente. their prediction of the Prefi
'" dential Electors.

Domejlic day of Dryden.
The accurate and laborious Edmond
Malonf., Efqr. in his elaborate life of a
great poet, prefixed to a late invaluable
edition of his prose writings, after in
forming us, that " even the domejlic day
of fuel; a man cannot be uninteresting,"
adds, Dryden usually devoted his morn
ings .to the composition of his various
works. The hour of dinner, even in
the latest period of his time, did not ex
ceed two o'clock and plays began at four
in the afternoon. Between 3 and 4
o'clock, he rep;iired to the coffee-houie,
and there a great part of the evening was
spent. " Addifon, fays Pope/' p .fled
each day alike, and much in the fame
manner, as Dryden did. Dryden em
ployed his mornings in writing ; dined
en famille, and then went to Will's ; only
he came home earlier dnights" In Ad
difon's time, it was cqflomary, at about
7 or 3 o'clock, to retire from the cofree
houfe to the tavern, where wine and fre
quently pipes and tobacco, were imme
diately called for ; and in an hour or
two afterwards they flipped, and then
again circulated the bottle.
JDomc/lic day of Aildifan.
Adtlifon, as Pope related to Mr.Spence
studied all the morning, then met liis
party at Button's Coffee-houfe, dined
there, and stayed five or fix hours, and
fometimcs for into the night. " I was,"
fays Pope, " of the company for about
a year, but I found it too much for me.
"It health and so I quitted it."
Addifon's chief companions before he
married Lady Warwick, were Steele,
Budgell, Careu, D'Avcnant, and Colo
nel Brett. He used to breakfatt with
one or other of them at his lodgings in
St. James' plice, dine at taverns with
them, then to Button's, and then to
some tavern again for supper and the
evening ; and this was the usual round
of his life.
Jfing William 111, fays, Lord Or ford,
had so little regard for men of letters
arid wit, that when St. Evremont was
introduced to him, the King said coldly
" I think you lucre a Major General in
the French ferviee!"
,In ' c good King Charles's, jovial
days," when the most extravagant wit
had like the " loyalty" of the time " no
harm in't," it is recorded that when a
gentleman drank a lady's health as a toast,
by way of doing her still more honour,
he frequently threw some part of his
dress into the flames. In this proof of
veneration to the ladies, his compani
ons were obliged to follow him, by con
fumipg the fame article, whatever it
might be. One of the friends .of Sir
Charles Sedley after dinner at a tavern,
perceiving he had a very rich lace cra
vat on, r hen he nanjed the lady to whom
hpnour was due, made a facritice of his
cravat, and Sir Charles and the reft of
the company were all obliged to follow
Jiis example. Sir Charles bore his loss
with great composure, objerving, that
|it was a good joke, but that he would
have as good a frolic some other time.
On a fubfequcnt day, the fame party be
ing' ailbmbled, when Sedley had drank
a- bumper to the health of some beauty
.of the day, he called the waiter, and or
dering a tooth drawer into the room,
whom he had previously Rationed for
the purpose, madeliim draw a decayed
tooth, which had long plagued him.
The rules of good fellow (hip clearly re
quired that every one of the company
should lose a tooth also ; but they hoped
he would not be so unmerciful as rigidly
to enforce the law. All their remon
strances, however, were vain, and each
of his companions successively, multa ge
metis, was obliged to put himlelf intp
the hands of the operator.

Before General Hamilton's letter appear
ed; the Jacobins were pofeclly convinced
thjt the patriotic Semite of Penniyivani-,
were not, by the menaces of a few dtfperate
foreigners, to be frightened out of tbofe
rights with which their own Countrymen
had invelled them. They knew too well
that though a final I majority promised them
fonie success in New-York, yet the balance
of Fideral politics in many other Stntes,
that at tbe 19(1 eleftion were Anti-federal,
would more than comp;nfate for tbe loss of
one State. Rut 'hen this letter was puh
liflied, in (lead of proclaiming aloud the as
cendancy of their power, they ought rather,
if their were any ccnliderate among them,
to have attended to the prefages,of reason.
By doing this, they would have indantly
peicei»ed that this letter, so far from divi
ding the federal party, has had the contrary
effeft in making their union m»n: firm than
ever ; they might h<ve eafilv ' discovered,
notwithftandinp tbe thiukuefs of their brains,', ■
that the willi of Mi. Hamilton was fully
accomplished-, in giving tu Mr. Piiickney
an equal chance vfith Mr. Adams, and by
that means enfnring to the Fecteral p>,rty a
President and VicefPrelident both of their,
own principles ; whereas vf he had not have
pnbliflird tt, it is very probable the votes
in the New-England State? -would have
been the fame ;rs at the former eleftion, in
which cafe the President only would have
Oeen federal.
This is the end, Mr. Wayiie, to which
the vain hopes of the Jacobins have arrtvrd,
an end, which I fi.icerely deiire will place
them in eternal disgrace and infamy.
