My dear Sir, - Your reply to General Jackson's letter is admirable, and has been most favorably received every where, at least on this side the Allegheny. It places the General in a position where he can not remain. He must move, in some direction ; and, whatever movement he makes, will either embarrass his friends, or still more embarrass himself. I have a suspicion that the respectable member of Congress is Mr. Buchanan. If this should turn out so, it will place him in an awkward situation, since, it seems, he did recommend a bargain with your friends, on the suspicion that such a bargain had been proposed to them on the part of the friends of Mr. Adams. I am curious to see how this matter will develop itself.
