Sl3t months have elapsed, since the pre)'- j
ent Editor of this Gazette, became its Cole 1
proprietor, by purchase, from Mr: Jno. W. ,
Fefiuo. He therefore deems it proper, at 1
this period, to (lat» some particulars rqlatue 1
to it, at, and since the time when it became j
his eftablifhmeut.
Thr Gazette of the United States, had
from its commeucment, been conduced,
at different periods, by two gentlemen, of
acknowledged talc'nia and relpeA. biliy ; hence
■it merited and obtained countenance from a
■very numerous and refpeft*b!e class of the
community. It was, th-ref re, realonahly
concluded, that on its becoming the pro
perty of another, who from several years
absence from his native city> was recognized
only by private friends, that a proportion of
those who had previously honored it by their
support, would withdraw their names.—
This was partially the csfe but so fir
from re'alifing the fears emertiined on this
point, not one fourth of the number contem
plated, ?>ave relinquished. I his alone was
a favourable omen, but it is infinitely more
gratifying to observe, that, the numbers ad
ded to his fiibfcription lift, have exceeded his
calculations two-fold.
In the Advertising department, many
favours, are acknowledged, but as on this
particular, reds the ability to meet large
pecuniary, weekly disbursements, it is found
requisite to solicit a more liberal support.
This paper, exclusive 6f the number cir
culated in this city, is read in every town,
of any Importance, in the United States,
and in the adverufiug line, will be Wind
highly beneficial to the Mercantile part of
the community,
It will be deemed fuperfluous, at this
time, to enter into a detail of the political
principles of the Editor—the motives which
2 ftuite him, and his plan of editing.
Thev are now univerftilly known, and it is
highly pleafii'.g to find, that they are gene
rally approved of, by a refpeftabl" portion of
the community, who have fanftioned that
appiobatioh with their names and purfts.
It >.toy be observed by some honed, wor
thy hnen, that the style of the Gazette is
Sometimes violent, and' that private per
ons, are at those times attacked—To the
charcre of violence he obje&s, that of warmth
js •cheerfully admited and he will here
f.bferve, that advocating truth, and the
cleared intererts of his c untry, he feels a
a l, which he thinks, and thev on refteftion
3 ult admit, is laudable. T> "fe. who ebjea
to his giving full scope to his feelings on
this fubjeft, will do well to consider, that
he has to contend with an unprincipled,
darings and afpirir.g fa&ion ; who threaten
■every thing virtuous, with total fubverfi.on,
whofe only arguments are falfehood and
Private characters, are held sacred, gene
rally speaking, hut when turbulent aliens
and naturalized citizens, become bawlers at
town meetings and write libel after libel on
the firfl charafters iu our country When
they fanftion with their detested names the
most gl»f> n K wifehoods and tlie vilefl: de
tra&ion, amid such an uproar, silence would
be criminal. Such men and thole only has
the Editor dragged before the American peo
ple ; he has opposed them, and will continue
to appoft" thew, and from the flrongell ties
6f attachment to America, he will uncea
singly combat with all the means in his
posver, the infidioug and inveterate foes to
this country whether foreign or doroeflic.

House of Representatives,
Thursday, December 4.
Mr. Hi!! p clei.ted a memori 1! from Sa
mtiel Hai rifon Smith and ThoriUs Oarpen
reprelenting 1 hat they had uuiertakei
to report the debates nt the Houlejthat foil
urv 10 their ex;>eifta'ion, on the luggeftioi
of inconvenience to the m mbers, th *y had
not received pemulTion to occupy a iituatii
011 ithin the bar, without which, they wen
nimble to (tale with fidelity the t roceeding
and debates ; and praying the permillion o
the Honle to be admitted within the bar
As soon as the memorial was read tin
Speaker role and cbierved, 1 hat kelinj
hmdi-lf re'lponliblc to the honle for tin
faithful difchaige of the duties attached ti
his lituation, he thought it proper to (late
the line of condutthe had purlued it
this butinefs. He dated that he was ap
plied to by letter, on the full day ot the tel
lion by Mr. Stewart, n quelling pemiitlioi
to occupy a place v ithin the bar ; that ht
immediately took the lequeli into confidera
tion ; that in the mean time iimilar re
quells were made hy other individuals ; thai
on obfervinv Hr ; i:tn:c of the room and
the arrangement of the furniture , it at WCi
appeared to him inconsistent with the
n'it) of the House, or tjie convenience of the
members, to grant the permilfion asked
that the area was too small, to afford tht
n.-cetfary accommodation ; that the po
rtion cenfidered as the lead inconveni
ent to the Honle wsi within the window
frames ; that, in his opinion, this politioi:
would not be agree tide tothe ftcnographers
as the view ot the members on the oppolite
tide of the house from either window would
be obllruArd: that if apoliti >ll was afligned
in any other pari ot the h lute, t!ie ttenog.a
phei would iie bet wee-1 the chair and ionic
of the members, w'tioh would render the
preservation of order inipofhble ; tliat lie
had Hated these reasons, and informed the
applicants, that if agreeable to them, he
would ilfign a place in the galleiy; whuh
(hould be let apart for their extlulive ule ;
and that he considered that to be the moll
eligible position. He concluded by re, eat
ing that it was in lus elv
impoflible to prel'ervc the dignit\- ot the
House, and to .maintain the c„uw ut
the members if the requelh-d o .imlHou
were giver.. Such was Ins hiii,hism* .naide
opinion—lt was unaltered —it was Hill
the fame.
Mr. Nicholas fa; 1 that the members ot
the House mull receive a common inierctt
in having the de ates takt»n with fidelity .
If the debates were taken, they ought to be
taken with precision. Thole who to. !: them
Ihouhl not be de barred irom the belt in- ails
of hearing with accuracy. For his part he
could not discern t he inconvenience
to exist. The d lk, which it was necellary
to admit within til. bar, would not project
beyond the window tiame ; and as to the
re in a: kof the Speaker respecting the m
convenience of such a position to ihe Steno
graphers,- it was easily obviated by the
ecu,fideration, that any inaccuracy v Inch
might occur in the repoi t of the individual
who took ' hem on one tide ct the chair
would be checked by the reporter situated
on the other fide.
lie thought thr desire of the meiriuiialnis
ought not to be palled cvei*.lightly. 1 hey
had a right to the heft place that the houte
doulsi aflign. He moved v'.<e reterence ot
tha memorial to a telett committee.
Mr. Hill observed that as the memorial
contained no fads that required the mvef
tigtion of a committee, and a "lie lfoute
poli 1-fed all the info in .1 n .at C*uld
guide thsir decilion, he d 1 r. it dileeru the
propriety of the propoled relertnce. He
had prepared a resolution, which, if the mo
tion for a reference were withdrawn, he
would offer.
Mr. Nicholas immediately withdrew his
motion. ... r1 /• r u
Mr. Hill then propoled a relolution lub
ftantially to tins effect ; that Mr. Speaker
be requeued to aflign places within the bar
far the Stenographer
Mr. Otis was lorry the gentleman from
Virginia, had withdrawn his motion to refer
the memorial to a teleft committee, as lie
thought the fubjea required exammatien
before a deciticn was made. There appear
ed to him much weight in the ideas »f the
Speaker. Grant, for the Take of argument,
that four persons may be accommodated at
the windows. theie. not be other
applications? Was any gentleman prepar
ed to fay how many would be made It
the permiitton were once granted to one,
would it not be necelfary to extend it to
all r Would the Heufe fuiFer any indivi
dual to have ail exclulive benefit whereby a
U a nip of authenticity would be fixed on his
llatements 1
This bufinefs,in one fliape or other,had ot
ten been before the house ; and all con ve il
lation refpeiling it had always issued in lea
ving it to the regulation ot the Speaker.
This appeared to him the best termination it
could receive.
From tlie attention he had paid to the de
bates reported this felTt.ol, he beliaved thf 111
to the better and more accurately taken,
then they had been on former occalions.
This to him was proof that the pre lent litu
ation of ire stenographers was a good one.
lie at the fame time, that
the ability with which thedc ates were ta
ken entitled thole who took them to the
best ate mimodatien the house could afford.
He concluded with renewing the motion tor
a referent e to a feleft committee.
Mr. Nicholas replied that no debate had
taken place which could test the accuracy of
the tienogfaphers. From his own experi
ence he pronounced the situation at prelent
occuried utterly inconvenient. What he
' had I'ome days finte remarked bad been imi
tated. He wett k'hfW that this did not aril
frcm the mabilitv of the reporter to state
cov.reftly what occurred. He knew him to
he intelligent, and fully capable of conceiv
ing and conveying the meaning ot any re
marks which could be made in that bouse
Hut it arore from his lituation, from which
it was inipoflible to hear diftin&ly.
He declared the objections ol Mr. Otis
in relatii-,1 to the number of applicants,
perfectly chimerical. Did the gentleman
fnppole tljiit tlie number would be lo gieat
as to make a demand on our feats ? As
1 well might he imagine this, as that they
! would l'well to the ideal compass be had
j given them. It was known to the haafe,
i that at Philadelphia the number was irwall;
' seldom, ipQre than two, and uiten not more
j than one perfevtred during the leffion, tho'
i a greater number appeared on its earlieit
' days. and experience, therefore, de
| moiillrated the fallacj of the danger appre
hended from this source.
A question was then taken on the refer
ence to a fele& committee, and carried,
ayes 42, nays 34.
And a committee of five, viz. Messrs.
Otis, Nicholas, Plact, Morris, and Hill, was
appointed. __
