Arrivals since our last - The Caledonia, from Liverpool; the
Blackbird, from Barbados; and a schooner from Berbice.
By the first-mentioned vessel we have received Papers to the 23d
of September; but they came too late to hand for us to make any very extensive
selection for this day's number.
By the second, no papers were brought of a later date than those
already before us; but we understand, from that quarter, that the
lately-announced capture of the American Squadron, is generally believed in
And, by the last, a letter has been received by a Gentleman here,
of which the following is the substance - that a boat had arrived in that
river, with the crew of a Guernsey brig, lately captured by an American
privateer - that the enemy is represented to be a very fine schooner, about an
hundred feet keel, carries fourteen guns, with a 24-pounder on a traverse, and
a complement of 130 men - and that she is called the Rattle Snake.
We are authorised to state, that a Board of Commissioners is
formed by His Excellency the Acting Governor, for the purpose of enquiring into
the Fees and Charges of the different Public-Offices, and regulating the
Tarifs; in order that a liberal allowance may be made by Government and the
Court of Policy to those whose time and labour is passed in the public service
- as also with a view to correct any abuses or impositions upon the public,
should such appear in the course of investigation.
In consequence of intelligence having been received, of the
arrival of two American privateers on the coast, His Excellency the Governor,
with his characteristic energy, began immediately that judicious series of
preparations, which on Wednesday last, ended in the equipment and departure of
a naval force. Small, indeed, was it; but, from the well-known ability and
patriotism of all on board, completely adequate; and should they be so
fortunate as to fall in with those disturbers of our tranquillity [sic], those
insulters of our coast, and those unnatural foes - confident are we, that its sailing
will not be in vain. - It consisted of the brig Hawk, late from Newfoundland,
and the Packet, whose arrival from England we announced in our last - and on
board of which was a considerable Voluntary Detachment of the 60th Regiment,
and the Royal Militia.
following is extracted from the Log-book of the Caledonia, already announced: -
"The third of November, at 6 A.M. saw a schooner and sloop, to the S.S.E.
of us - at 8, observed the schooner to be in chase of us - we supposed her to
be a British man of war - at 10, saw the schooner sweeping up to us - at noon,
the schooner coming up with us, got everything in readiness for action - at
half past 1 P.M. shortened sail, wore ship, and stood towards the schooner -
same time she hoisted an American ensign and a white flag at the topmast-head,
with a large letter P. and a name beginning with S. but could not distinguish
the rest; at the same time, she gave us a shot, and repeated it with two more -
her force was about 12 or 14 guns, one long one went in a circle amidships - we
then showed our ensign, and commenced the action, and continued it at intervals
until 5 P.M. at which time she was making short tacks, until she got out of gun
shot to windward - she then made all sail to the northward - and we made all
sail after her. We received but very little injury - she shot away two mizen
topsail shrouds and one maintop-gallant backstay, and several running ropes.
At 7 P.M. found we could not come up with her, we tacked ship, and went on our
AGAINST THE WAR. [heading]
New-York, July 16. - The papers by the mails for the last
fortnight, are filled with resolutions of town meetings, &c. against the
late war measures of Congress. At a meeting of the Citizens of Lower Delaware
Ward in the City of Philadelphia, the 10th instant, the following, amongst
other resolutions, was adopted:-
"Resolved, That as the present men now in power, have in our
opinion, justly forfeited our confidence, and believing that the men that made
this war, are not calculated to make an honourable peace; it becomes our duty,
as men determined at all hazards to be free, to use every honourable and
constitutional exertion to remove the present rulers, and to place others in
their situations, in whom we can have sufficient confidence as to believe that
they will, free from selfish motives, protect our liberty, our property, our
lives, and all that is sacred, to the true letter and meaning of our
And at a Convention of Delegates from fifty-six towns in the
counties of Hampshire, Franklin and Hampden, holden at Northampton on Tuesday
the 14th day of July inst. A Committee was appointed to consider and report
what measures, in their opinion, this Convention should adopt, in relation to
the present alarming situation of our public affairs, the means most lively to
lessen the calamities of the war in which we are involved, and to produce a
speedy, just, and honourable Peace. On the following morning, the Committee
made their report, comprising, among other things, the following Memorial to
the President of the United States, which was accepted and signed by every
member of the convention.
"In the exercise of the inestimable privilege of peacably
assembling and petitioning Government for a redress of grievances, your
memorialists, delegates from towns in the counties of Franklin, Hampshire and
Hampden, within the common wealth of Massachusetts, legally appointed in
regular town meetings, holden for that purpose, except in the four instances of
West Springfield, Bernardstown, Leveret, and Northfield, (said counties
comprising about eighty thousand souls), take the liberty of addressing the
chief Magistrate of the Union upon subjects of vital importance to the public
interest, and penetrated, as well with a conviction that the people are the
sources of power, as with a sense of the veneration due to the several branches
of their Government, they would approach your Excellency with the freedom of
Independent citizens, and at the same time with respect.
"From the nature of our Government, it is obviously requisite
to its just administraton, that it should be much guided and governed in its
operations by public opinion; not that the wild caprice or impassioned and
hasty sentiments of the people should impel their rulers into systems of policy
morally wrong, or divert them from a course of measures wisely calculated to
advance the public happiness; but that the deliberate voice of the people, in
relation to subjects of which they have the means of judging correctly, and in
which they are immediately interested, should be listened to with the most
careful attention by their 'substitutes and agents' in public office.
"Thus, in the language of the constitution of this
commonwealth, 'the end' of the institution, maintenance and administration of
Government, is to secure the existence of the body politic, to protect it, and
to furnish the individuals who compose it, with the power of enjoying in safety
and tranquility, their natural rights and the blessings of life; and whenever
these great objects are not obtained, the people have a right to alter the
Government, and to take measures necessary for their safety, prosperity, and
happiness' But the issues of injustice, of which rulers may be guilty, are at
once so various and so indi[illegible]itively blended; extending fom there
omissions of duty, to a continued coures of 'injuries and [illegible],' that it
becomes of the utmost importance to a Government, conceding and founded upon
these great first principles and 'self evident truths,' that its measures
should correspond, as far as may be, with the wishes and judgement of the
"A supposed common interest is, in the apprehension of your
memorialists, the basis of the federal union; and if, in consequence of the
proceedings of the Government, any particular section of our country should be
induced to consider its own interests as sacrificed to and the ambition or
appease the jealousy of other sections, it cannot, and it ought not to be
concealed, that by the habitual indulgence of such feelings, which measures
partial in their effects cannot fail to produce, the Union itself would
eventually be endangered. Your memorialists, therefore, ardently attached from
principle, as well as habit, to their present form of Government, and sincerely
desirous of transmitting it unimpaired to posterity, as under God the choicest
of all temporal blessings, can not forbear to express to your Excellency the
sentiments of many thousands of their friends and fellow citizens on the
subject of the restrictive measures of Congress, and the existing war with
"For many years after the establishment of the present
Government, the prosperity and happiness of the people of the United States
were great beyond example. But since the attempts on the part of the
Government in 1807 to protect commerce by withdrawing it from the ocean,
enterprise has lost its activity, and industry its hope of reward. Jealousies
have been excited by repeated measures of Congress, tending to the depression
and extinction of our commercial rights; and the people of New England, in
consequence of the severe pressure of commercial restrictions, have almost
seemed to view those who should be to them 'nursing fathers,' as enemies and
not friends. But notwithstanding the long seires of evils which have been
experienced of late years, in a peculiar degree by the northern and commercial
states, your memorialists feel themselves still bound to believe that the
Government will not persist in a course of measures hitherto inefficient either
in redressing the wrongs committed against the United States or protecing any
part of the property of her citizens when experimentally convinced of its
disastrous influence upon the rights and interests of a large portion of the
"After the able and satisfactory examination of the alledged
causes of war against Great Britain, contained in 'an address of members of the
House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States to their
constituents,' it can hardly be expected that your memorialists should detail
to your Excellency the particular grounds of their belief, that the war is
neither just, necessary, nor expedient. While they would not, therefore,
attempt a discussion of the alledged grounds of hostilities, they would
congratulate your Excellency and the friends of peace throughout the Union upon
the recent appearance of a decree of the Government of France repealing her
decrees of Berlin and Milan, and the probable consequent removal of the
principal alledged cause of war - the British Orders in Council. At the same
time your memorialists cannot repress their indignant emotions, while
contemplating the manifest attempts, on the part of France, to deceive the
American people to their ruin.
"The Berlin and Milan Decrees were alledged to have been
repealed in Nov. 1810; but Great Britain, in justification of her refusal to
withdraw her Orders in Council, has invariably considered the promise of
repeal, made in the month of August preceding, as dependent on our
determination to cause our rights to be respected by the commencement of
hostilities against the English. In vain, for more than eighteen months, did
the citizens of the United States wait the ordinary and proper evidence of that
repeal, the repealing Decree; in vain did Great Britain promise a repeal of her
Orders, whenever that evidence should be furnished, the condition of the
promise of repeal had not then been performed, the United States being at peace
with Great Britain. But, in the judgment of your memorialists, it is a singular
and alarming fact, that within thirty days after the declaration of war against
Great Britain, a Decree of repeal, bearing date April, 1811 (more than a year
previous to its formal promulgation), was received in the United States. It is
singular, because it displays a boldness of deception, hitherto unparalleled in
the intercourse of independent states; and it is alarming, inasmuch as 'he that
runs may read,' that Bonapart, from the imposition of the first embargo down to
the declaration of war against Great Britain, anticipated with more exactness
the proceedings of our public councils than Americans themselves.
"But could the Emperor of France have believed, that the
Government of the United States was about to be entangled in his toils [sic],
and irresistibly drawn into the continental system and the embraces of an
alliance? It is impossible he should have imagined, that a war commenced
against Great Britain on the ground of her obnoxious Orders in Council, would
be persisted in, when those Orders were removed by the removal of his Decree
upon which they were founded? It is conceivable, that he has issued this
Decree affixing to it a false date, in order to deceive the American people, as
to the time of the repeal itself? Why the repeated declaration, since the
month of Nov. 1810, that the Berlin and Milan Decrees were fundamental laws of
the French empire, confirmed, as it has been by an indiscriminate capture of
American property, and the total ignorance of the judicial and ministerial
officers of the French Government as to the fact of any revocation, and now for
the first time, the promulgation of a Decree, whereby the Emperor would seem to
have expressed his gracious pleasure, in April, 1811, that those Decrees should
be repealed? Why is a Decree of repeal, purporting, on the face of it, to have
been adopted in consequence of a law of Congress of March, 1811, now published
to the world, as conclusive evidence of the existence of that repeal in the
month of Nov. 1810? Why, your memorialists respectfully ask, why this dark and
mysterious conduct on the part of France? Why this mixture of falsehood and
hypocrisy? - Why her alternate caresses and indignities? Why are we at one
time told, that 'His Majesty loves the Americans,' and that 'their prosperity
and commerce are within the scope of his policy;' and, at another that they are
'men without just political views, without honour, and without energy?' Why,
we ask, but that France would hurry us into the same snares, into which the
Governments of the Continent have already fallen by the united agency of
flattery, fraud and menace?
"Impressed, therefore, with the importance of the crisis, as
it respects the justice, impartiality, and honour of the National Government,
about to be evidenced by the course of its measures in the new relation
supposed to be now substituting between the belligerents of Europe and the
United States, your memorialists do not hesitate to express their conviction,
that measures should be immediately taken, in the event of the repeal of the
British Orders in Council, to bring the war it its infancy, to an honourable
termination; and, that a persistence in hostilities, after the removal of this,
the leading and only recent ground of war against Great Britain, would be
viewed of necessity, by all classes of the people, as deeply alarming to the
liberties and independence of the United States.
"But, whatever may be the course of Great Britain, in
consequence of this fraudulent attempt on the part of France to bind us
indissolubly to her empire, your memorialists cannot consider the war, in which
we are engaged, as required by the interest, security, or honour of the
American people. - If prosecuted for the protection of commerce, the friends of
commerce have invariably deprecated restrictions and war, as indescribable
evils, and would gladly exchange them, upon any terms, for free trade and
honourable peace. If war has been declared to cleanse the honour of the
Government, should not that power have been selected as our enemy, which imprinted
the stain; which, while it has declared the Americans to be 'more dependent
than Jamaica, which at least has its assembly of Representatives and its
privileges,' has practically expressed her contempt of our Government and her
disregard of national law by seizing, scuttling, and burning our merchant
vessels without even the forms of regular adjudication? Admitting, however,
our honour to have been tarnished by Great Britain; our rights to have been
withholden; and the personal liberty of our citizens to have been infringed;
how, your memorialists respectfully inquerie, are our seamen to be protected,
by exposing them to capture as prisoners of war? How are our injuries to be
redressed by throwing our wealth within the grasp of Great Britain, and authorising
depredations on the part of her subjects? Or how is our honour to be
brightened by a war which must terminate, if persisited in, either in ruin or
"Under these circumstances, your Memorialists earnestly pray
your Excellency, that Commissioners may be forthwith appointed, on the part of
the United States, to negociate and conclude a treaty of peace with Great
Britain, upon just, safe, and honourable terms."
