5284. MIRANDA EXPEDITION, Prosecutions.—

On the prosecution of Ogden and
Smith for participation in Miranda's expedition,
the defendants and their friends have
contrived to make it a government question, in
which they mean to have the Administration
and the judge tried as the culprits instead of
themselves. Swartwout, the marshal to whom,
in his duel with Clinton, Smith was second,
and his bosom friend, summoned a panel of
jurors, the greater part of which were of the
bitterest federalists. His letter, too, covering
to a friend a copy of Aristides, [327] and affirming
that every fact in it was true as Holy Writ
[was considered in Cabinet]. Determined unanimously
that he be removed.—
The Anas. Ford ed., i, 316.
(May. 1806)
