JOSEPH NOURSE, Register.

* This abstraćt establishes one unpleasant and embarrassing faćt; to wit, that General Washington, instead of refusing to accept of any salary (which his admirers have said was the case), actually overdrew his salary, and had, from June 1790 to June 1795, constantly several thousands of dollars of the public money in his hands.--Whether he really did let this money out at usurious interest, as it was asserted, will, perhaps, never be known.

The following Article, which was published in
BACHE's Paper of the 21st December 1796, will
prove that there were other reasons for the Gene-
ral's retiring, whlch he did not think proper to
state. ~ *
“The President seems to arrogate great merit to

himself on account of his disinterestedness, and in

this he no doubt includes his declension to serve
again. The disinterestedness on this latter score is

rather questionable ; for his unwillingness to be a

candidate seems to have arisen rather from a con-
sciousness that he would not be re-elected, than a
want of ambition or lust of power. It was well un-
derstood that many of the republicans of the con-
stitution were determined to give him opposition,
and the nature of the United States promised suc-
cess to the plan. Nothing was more easy than to
make him a Vice-President by uniting the republi-
can suffrages in favour of Joh N ADAMs and sub-
tracting even a few votes from him—He was proba-
bly apprized of the scheme, and to save himself from
the mortification and disgrace of being superseded,
he cunningly declined.—It may be thought sin-
gular, that Jo HN ADAMs, who is a professed aristo-
crat, should be preferred by republicans to GEo RGE
WASHINGTON ; but an examination into the case
will make the preference appear very plain and
desirable. There can be no doubt that ADAMs
would not be a puppet—that having an opi-
nion and judgment of his own, he would act from
his own impulses rather than the impulses of others
—that possessing great integrity, he would not sa-
crifice his country's interests at the shrine of party
—and that being an enemy to the corruptions
