Vice-rreside- A?rifflqettTaRiCTmsd'3nanahfl TO THE rURLIC. My husband bequeathed to me his confidence in his wil'. He gave me the euarrliswship of his children and the disposal of his property. Could he have foreseen, that he was to iall by the hand of an assassin, and that the malice of had men would have put sued into the grave and sought to make his name a reproach to his children and relatives, he would have lest to me in his last testament, as its most sacred injunction, the task of vindicating his reputation and pulling down the odium ot Ins country upon his slanderers as well as its justice upon his murderers. Next to the religious duties which I owe to heaven, it is my most anxious care to cherish all remains to me of the dearest objects of my affections. The soul assassin has robbed me of his person and society; but nearest my heart will ever cherish the memory of his virtues and his love It is the most precious legacy he has lest me; it is the dearest and most valuable inheritance of his orphr.n children. I must not suffer the soul spirit which shed his blood to tear this from my bosom, and leave the dear memorials of his love woise than poor. No, is I could not ward off the fatal blow which struck him to the heatt I must at least wipe off the stains which fiend-lik- e malace would six upon his memory. My widowedjteart, although it aches and sickens at the tljobght. that in a generous community, circumstances should make it necessary to vindicate murdeied excellence, will be firm in its purpose. Although every vengeful feeling is diowned in my sorrows, yet, ' I trust, that in the midst of them, I shall be enabled to gather resources to piotect and support me against the malevolence which would destroy my only earthly consolation, and save my little children fiom the infamy to which wicked men would doom the memoiy of their father To the father ol mercies 1 look up in my as flictions, find on llim I call to direct and support me in this pious duty, as well as all the afflictions which await me through the residue of this I thank vv oi Id's llim lor having pilgrimage. restored to me that reason, which, for a time, was extinguished with the life of my beloved husband, and I pray llim'so to direct this inestima- le gilt, as to bring the slanderers anil murder ers to merited punishment, and preset ve foi me and my children, unsullied by a stain, the dearly cherished memory of the, best of husbands and the kindest ol fathers. To my country I look for impartial justice and even is the guilty shall escape the condemnation of its laws, cherish the' fond hope, that it will at least justify the ileeph injured and the innocent. Ills for the purpose of vindicating my lost husband and myself befoie this tnbuiial that I make this appeal. Fatiick H.Dai by, editor ofthe Constitutional Advocate published at Frankfoit, has inserted in his paper, several publications full of imputations against the character ol'my'tleceased husband, and the conduct of his surviving relatives and myself The substance of these imputations against my husband is, that he had formerly se duced the girl whom iicaiichamp, the man now confined on suspicion of his murder. aftervvanU d married; that during the last year, he had p.ipeis and ccititicUes, caliulateo to cover the wise ot Ueauchamp with infamy; and the charge againt myself is, that 1 now conceal thee certificates anil deny their existatice, tor the purpose of fixing the assassination of my husband upon a political partj , when have it in my pov op to shew that it originated wholly in personal The motives which actuate Darby in revenge these attacks upon the speecnles dead and the afflictive living, may be probably sound in the detail of facts which shall now submit to the public. Within the first year aster my marrage. was greatly shocked by the icpoitoiigtnated by Miss Aim Cook, since Mrs bouushnmp, ivitfi regard to inj husband. A lioit time, however, rev ealed her motives, and circumstances came to light which satisfied all her"conncxinn. as well a my- sell'ol his entne innocence. In addition to (he proofs which had alieady produced this conviction, a letter w as then put "do the hands of my husband by a ii r Keel of Bovvllnggreen, (a l.igU ly respectable citizon.and fnend) wnttrn by a young gcnllenian ytjio had removed from'tlie tale, pointing out (he gmltv persons most pltcitv, and giving the cei tain means otlnsin-tormutioiThis letter wns communicated vol il- by Mr Keel for the purpose of enabling d ne whonrhe- krievv to be guiltless, to acquit fijutheahame upon, those for whose pro-- , 1 1 pto-cuie- 1 1 1 t. him--elfan- ViU, 8, toction the charge had been "made again'thim This letter, then giv en to my husband, most 1 as was the only paper, which, o far know or believe, he ever possessed u.ith re gqrd to this transaction. I am sure this affair would never again hive cost me an unhappy I thought hut for (he evil propensities of wicked and designing men, who sought in their f ilse.j ana exploded tale, the means ot grafifjing their malignity towards my husband, in the purity of iv nose me tney could hnd no materials which would minister to their revenge A short tune aster the public opinion had settled down in ;t total disbelief of this story, it became the duty of my husdand, in the line ofhis profession, "to plead a caue against John U Wa ring The violent character of this man, is well known. In the progress of the cause while my husband was in the bar, Waring wrote him two letters threatnitig his life, is he pieststed in exerting Ins talents dgamst him. Though apprized ofthe dungeious charactei of this man, he dispised his tin eats and persisted in (he performance of his duty Wai ing, although he has since boasted in his publication that he has stabbed six men, did not add mj husband to the number of nis victims ; but contented himself with attempting to stab his reputation. He took up Miss Cook's exploded story and gave it to the public miorm ol handbills, with all the gloss of which he was master. These papers he circulated through the state and probably sent them into other states, In all likelihood, this scandalous publication pioduced sfome impression at a where the character and motives of the author and the statements of his handbill were alike safe from inquiry; but among thoe who were acquainted with all these, it was viewed only as a wanton effort to gratify privitc malice, u ttie espence ot justice and truth, jly husband srcuie in conscious innocence, never deigned to notice the libel. The respectable connections of Miss Cook were among his most intimate acquaintances and friends, and he could not think of adding to their mortification and shame by vindicating himself against thb little harm this malicious efiort could do him, although it was then completely m his power. Unpleasant as this twice told story was to them, tl.ey knew the malignity ofthe charge as it jegardediny husband and knowing his honor and fidehty, vcrewil ling to testify to the world their coin ictionot his innocence by employing' him in their business both before and aster our removal to this place. Pilot long aster the appearance ot Wanng's handbill, the office of Attorney General, wasteu- lered to ufy husband; and as my mother lived n Fraukfo-- t, his indulgent feelings and anxiety (o coinjuy with my wish to live near her, induced him to remove to a distance from his landed piopeity and relinquish the lucrative practice in which lie was engaged. ivlore than a year aster our removal from that pait of the slate and sour years aster the event hich gave rise to this tale, married Miss Cooke with a full know ledge of all the circumstances of her shame and of 'thechaiges which had been so widely ciiculated against my It is said he laughed at the delicacy husband ot his family who would have dissuaded him from forming this connection, and evidenced the most periect indifference upon the subject of her chaiactcr, inducing the belies that he married her for the pioperty she had and not on account 'of any peisonal attachment, as she was peaily ,suit years ot age when married, and Beauchamp not moie than twentj cne' Before he was of, age it is said, he attempteo to extoit a marriage licence by piesentmg unloaded pistol to the 'bieast ot the clerk who Iwd been forbidden to 'give him one. But duringthe tvhole time of tlii man's intimacy with Mi-- s Look, previous 'to his marriage and previous to our removal from U airen County, he never evinced an ill feeling tovraid my husband. Since we have resided in, Frankfoit. he several times saw my husband on his visits to ivowlmggreen, and never shewed by his conduct that he haiboured the slightest hostility against him. On the contrary he collected monev forhimm the country wheie he lived, and paid it ovei to Dr., and other instances manifested a disposition to oblige the family. These fact's will doubtless be.em- 'ploved by him to show he harbouied iu mal ice against my husband, which could piompt ihim to the commission ot the lion id deed vvitn which he stands charged. Be U so. They are true, and he is entitled to all the advantages which thee circumstances afford. My husband ncergave him tlie slightest cause ot complaint. Fiom the otiginof thisHoryto the moment of his death, he acted with the most scrupulous propriety in regard to the unfoitunate woman and her mollified connexions. He never solicited a single paper or document to eliminate her or nei at computes, or lo exouei.uc wiuioc. himself with asserting hisown innocence and declaring that he could procure evidence to piove himself guiltless; but his delicacy always induced him to forbear making the attempt, lest he should wound the sensibititj of icspectable peiscns who stood connected in family with Mis Beauchamp. Since my husband's death, however, his bto- ther, Dr. Sharp, in a recent visit to me jowei country, has procured those evidences which were before known to exist, and will, in due time, lav them before the public in vindication of his bi'othei's same. It is pioved by them, not onlj that he was innocent, but that he never soliciteu a certificate or other paper to vindicate Himself or add to the infamy of an unfortunate woman but that the latter tale as well as me iounei, has been fabricated by the enemies ot his good name. The story which originated with Miss Cook had almost vanished fiom the memory of men and had at least become a subject of perfect m- '!ifteience,whenmy husband became a candidate lor the legislature last spring. dis-Mii- v oac !'

As thoelectionappioTiched, it was said that the proofs weie collected and theirdisplay' would ciush him. Ills fnends were alarmed and communicated to him the threats of Ins euemies . He told them, as they severally spoke to him, that he had nothing to sear and could prove the whole to be a groundless calumny. He informed me of these conveisations and He mentioned the evidence he would employ told me he would get statements fiom thefriends and relatives of .Miss Cook, and particulaily the facts defiiilcd by Dr Payne, a gentleman connec ted by family with the parties implicated, to General Fletcher, Micajah llitrnsan Eqr. Mr. His adversaries, however, did Middleton &c. not think sit to use the materials they had collec ted, and my husband , so far as know or believe, never took one s,tep to collect certificates ornth-e- r evidence to defend himself against thern. He knew they could soon be collected and he did not wish to take a step which tvas calculated lo in on respectable individuals, unless it bediet came absolutely necessary. The election came on; he triumphed with ease over the great favorite ofthe oppo-it- e paity; the first hour of the day on which the legislature was to meet had alieady passed; and Fie penshed by the hand of an assassin. One effort made by Darby is, to produce a be lies that 1 am desirous to attribute ihis,ruthless deed to the patty which 'stoorfopposed to 'my hus band in politics. Letters have recently been re ceived from Bowlmggieen, where Darby now , operating on this subject, which prove that he is attempting to create the impression, and has in some instances succeeded, that the statements piocuied for the sole purpose ot vindicating my husband's character, are to be used for the ac complishment of political ends. Under this de.u-siv- e impiession, several individuals ofthe party opposed to my late husband, have wiitten to Dr Sharp requesting that their names should not be usetl to a statement they had cheerfully signed, contradicting in the most positive manner, this The names of these gchtle- thrice told scandal men shall not be used. '1 hank the God ofjusttcc, theie is enough evidence to acquit mv dear mur dered husband of nil guilt, without using the names of those who shrink back fiom doing ac knowledged justice to the memory ofthe dead, lest the truths which they tell may possibly the interests of a pai ty ! I mention the cir cumstance only to shew, the same malice which put in circulation the charges against me reputation of my husband, is now busy to deprive his fnends ofthe means to prove them false. No sooner does Dai by array and publish his charges of cnme against my buried love and of prevarication and concealment of papers against myself, thnu he starts oft (aster having his pistols first repaired) to prevent or intercept the evidence which would put down Ms torn eianucrs. Heaven knows, mv bosom entei tains no politi cal animosities. Manvoftho-- t vvhodiffeicd with my husband in political opinions, weie his warmest peisonal friends and feel the deepest soi row at his loss. The greatest number of my own te lativesand friends, belong to the paity which he opposed. Can it be believed, that it is my desire to identify all these individuals the dearest friends of my husband and myself, with his slan dcrers and muidereis? No, no, I feel that there aie sew. very sew persons, in our country or any other, who could slain their hands in Ihe blood ofthe innocent, the excellent, the Highly gifted, man, who was the victim ol the most tiornoie passions.
