- As far as His Majesty's mild Proclamation tends to effect a recal [sic] of
Natural-born Subjects, from, and entering into the degrading service of
go-between neutrals, It is entitled to the approbation of the English Nation.
Its pacific intention admits of a construction which unquestionably will reach
the attention of every Officer in Command, both Navy and Army. - There is
scarcely an American Vessel employed in their European, East, or West-India
trade, that is not manned in part by British Subjects: and, their would-be
Navy, has obtained its tuition from English deserters. It cannot be hoped that
such individuals can be brought to a due sense of their natural duty; but,
under the Proclamation sufficient authority exists to drag them to legal punishment.
Example is every thing. The Commanding Officer of any Vessel in our Navy is
only accountable for the conduct of a subordinate Officer ordered on a specific
duty, so far as such Officer's proceedings correctly correspond with the orders
given him. I speak advisedly: not an Officer in our service will contradict
the doctrine, and it is an elating hope, that every item of power delegated by
the long wished for, and now existing Proclamation will be rigidly exercised.
While England holds a single Possession in either North or South America, the
United States necessarily forms a part of the European system: notwithstanding
the intervention of the Ocean, and ought to be watched with more than jealous
attention. - 'Tis not British Seamen America wants, it is the Professional
knowledge of English Sailors that Columbians are in quest of: a knowledge
obtained under the reign of a Prince whose parental attention to his People, is
admired even by his enemies. Information so acquired, and prostituted in the
service of either Neutrals, or actual foes: justly merits for its possessors,
the rigorous execution of the punishment announced by the Proclamation. I
admit, our Navy and Army will not be a whit the stronger by receiving back,
those Seamen and Soldiers whose wavering principles has led them to the
detestable act of desertion. I take it that, the utility of the measure is, in
preventing the United States, or any other supposed neutral from purchasing out
of Our service, Schoolmasters, Drill-Sergeants, Gunners, and Armourers: however
much they stand in need of the acquisition.
Bonaparte has influenced the conduct of the American Government, seems to be
sufficiently proved by Mr. Jefferson's declaration to Mr. Erskine on a question
touching the Maritime power of America. The President betrayed by accustomed
invective, forgot his usual philosophical deliberation. France might have
aided the American Union with a few Ships, had England suffered the Danish Navy
to remain under the controul [sic] of the Emperor of the French; but that care
is fortunately and wisely altered, America can no doubt furnish Men; but
supplying a Navy with numbers, and equiping [sic] it with disciplined Seamen:
are very distinct considerations.
Monday last His Majesty's Ship Ulysses, Capt. Nesham, of 4 guns, arrived off
this River in company with His Majesty's Schooner L'Eclair. The Ulysses is
gone to Suriman [sic] to convoy some ships from thence, as we hear - and the
L'Eclair is come into this river. We understand that she is to cruize for some
time upon this station.
arrivals from Europe in the course of the present week. We have been favoured
with the sight of American Papers to the 21st ult. in one of which is Mr.
Jefferson's Message to Congress, it is extremely long and its contents are not
of that interest to deem it worthy of being printed at length - one part of it
relates to the different Provincial Courts transmitting their Minutes of
Proceedings to the President, who till now never exacted any such authority
over them, and it is also observed by the Boston Gazette to be unconstitutional
and an atrocious usurpation of power, by claiming a right, to review and
controul [sic] the proceedings of the judiciary.

engagement with each other not to Ship any Sugars from hence unless a reduction
of the Freight to eight Shillings pert Ct. takes place.
