installing the Tribunal of Commerce at Amsterdam, on the 13th of February, we
find that the President, among other things, in his address to the Prefect of
the Department of the Zuyder Zee, expresses a hope that the Tribunal "may
be able, by administering with strict justice and equity the existing laws, to
fulfil the duties imposed upon us, and maintain, in the affairs of commerce,
that good faith and equity which are indispensible to commercial prosperity,
which raised our ancestors to so high a degree of reputation, and will be the
firm basis of our future prosperity, when the moment shall have arrived, that
the vast genius of our August Sovereign shall have re-established the liberty
of the Seas, without which the commerce of these departments can never resume
its activity, nor promise itself that success which rendered it during two
centuries the nerve of the State and of this City."
American ships, laden with flour, have lately been carried into St. Lucar, by
two French privateers of that place. Their cargoes were immediately condemned,
and their crews put into confinement.
American vessel, called the Congress, Captain Clark, from Baltimore, bound to
London, has been taken, and sent into Cherbourg. This vessel sailed from
America on the 4th of February, and had been been [sic] expected in the Thames
for some time. A considerable amount had been insured upon her in London.
This ship has been called an English ship in the Paris papers; but this trick
will not do. This is another convincing proof that the Berlin and Milan
decrees are still in force; and the attempt to palm her upon the public as an
English vessel is another instance of the duplicity of the conduct of France
towards America. Such attempts ought ever to be exposed in their true shape
and complexion. This capture is a valuable one; and therefore they are more
anxious to deceive the public.
