2484. ELECTIONS (Presidential, 1800), Party Amalgamation and.—[continued].

Our information from all
quarters is that the whole body of federalists
concurred with the republicans in the last
elections, and with equal anxiety. They had
been made to interest themselves so warmly
for the very choice, which while before the
people they opposed, that when obtained it
came as a thing of their own wishes, and they
find themselves embodied with the republicans,
and their quondam leaders separated from
them; and I verily believe they will remain
embodied with us, so that this conduct of the
minority has done in one week what very
probably could hardly have been effected by
years of mild and impartial administration.—
