      He was afterward elected to Congress as a Democrat, serving from 1813 till 1815, when he became U.S. District Attorney, and held that office until he was removed by Gen. Jackson in 1829. Soon afterward he served in the legislature. He was a member of the Canal and International.......Convention there in 1825 and also of the Reform Convention there in 1837, and in Philadelphia in 1838. In 1837 he was appointed secretary of legation to Prussia. He served again in Congress from 1841 till 1847, as chairman of the committee on foreign affairs, and distinguished himself as a Democratic leader. In 1847 he was nominated by President Polk, U.S. Minister to France, but was rejected by the Senate.
      He was authro of "Chimara," a poem published in the "Portfolio" (1800); "Edwy and Elgira," a tragedy (Philadelphia, 1801); "Inchiquin, the Jesuit's Letters on american Literature and Polities" (New York, 1810); "Julian," a dramatic poem (1831); and a Historical Sketch of the Second War between the U.S. and Great Britian (4 vols., Phils., 1845-52). Joseph Bonaparte furnished him much material for the work. He also published numerous anonymous contributions to the "Democratic Press" of Philadelphia and to the "National Intelligencer" of Washington, on the controversies with England before the War of 1812; several "speeches" concerning that war (1813-15); a discourse before the American philosophical society on the "Influence of America on the Mind", which was republished in england and France (1823); a translation of a French work on the Freedom of navigation in the "American Law Journal" of 1829, and many other literary and political discourses.
