Answer: I'll give you SOME of the answers.
1. Google Judiciary Act of 1789.
2. Washington pushed for and eventually got a federally funded, standing military, he also pushed for a federal banking system.
3. Jefferson was concerned that a strong, centrally powered, federal government would ignore the plight of its people.
4. Hamilton wanted a strong, centrally powered, federal government (replacing the Articles of Confederation with a new Constitution. Hamilton also wanted to be the head of the new military.
5. Jefferson? Anti-Federalist all the way.
6. They were opposed to a Constitution and the scrapping of the Articles of Confederation. The later, was written with the almost sole purpose of allowing each state its autonomy (independence) and it gave recognition that each state was different from the others. So, each state had its own treasury, mint, postal system, banking system, militia, etc., etc., etc.. Unfortunately, under the Articles of Confederation, there was no unity AND the President was virtually powerless. They feared that allowing the federal government to take charge of the banking system would put too many eggs in one basket AND would further strengthen the federal government, weakening the states and states rights.
7. Call it a personal bias on my part, but Hamilton came off as a bit greedy and power hungry. He had a vision.
8. Look it up.
9. Hamilton was Federalist.
10. Washington didn't REALLY distrust the two party system. He WAS however, fed up with Jefferson openly accusing him of treason for supporting John Jay and the treaty with England. The country was financially broke. Hamilton had suggested that the federal government pursuit foreign trade agreements and get some money flowing. Hamilton looked to England. Initially Jefferson opposed and promoted a stand of isolationism until he finally realized just how bad off the country was. When he arrived at the same conclusion (that we MUST begin foreign trade agreements, he proposed doing business with France. Trouble was, France was in the middle of an extremely bloody revolution. Jefferson was willing to ignore the wanton blood shed. When Jay returned with the treaty and it was made clear that it heavily favored the English (whom Jefferson still viewed as the enemy. Jefferson made his public accusations. Eventually, Washington tired of it and announced he was stepping down. He planned to address Jefferson directly in his farewell address but Hamilton thought better of it, rewrote the address and softened the blows against Jefferson. Hence, "foreign entanglements" instead avoiding doing business with the bloody French. And a warning about partisan politics became a statement regarding two party systems.
11. You get to take it from here. Have fun and good luck! As for me, I'm off to bed. Have to work in the morning...
