J. S. MASSE,
Ct. of Justice.
following is a Copy of the Barbados Petition, against an Open Trade with the
His Royal Highness George, Prince
of the United Kingdom of
Britain and Ireland.
humble Petition of His Majesty's Council and of the Assembly of Barbados,
- That your Petitioners, although they have often suffered in their interests
by the Policy pursued by Great Britain in the Government of her Colonies, and
have been distressed beyond measure by taxation, have forborne to lay their
grievances at the foot the Throne, lest their complaints, however well-founded,
might embarrass the Administration of His Majesty's Government in these arduous
and unprecedented times of war and desolation.
"But it now becomes a duty that
your Petitioners, own to themselves, to their posterity, and to their Parent
State, to represent the danger, they may say the certain ruin to themselves,
and destructive consequences to Great Britain, of adopting the measures in
contemplation to be pursued respecting East India, (the laying open the trade
with that country), by which an unlimited quantity of our staple commodity,
Sugar, may be imported into Britain.
"It has long been admitted, that
the West Indies produce a sufficient quantity of Sugar for the supply of
Europe, even when free access is had to the Continental markets. The
introduction of an increased quantity from the East Indies will occasion a glut
in the market, as ruinous to the speculators themselves as to your Petitioners,
who, already weighted down with past years of misfortune, the moment their
hopes and expectations are raised by brightened prospects in the North, witness
a storm gathering in the East, about to hurl destruction on their heads.
is not in the power of your Petitioners to enter into competition with the
cheap labour, the simple machinery and fertile soils of the East; they build
their claims for protection on more solid grounds than those of bringing the
article cheaper to the British shores; they found them on the just right of
preference they have as Colonists, on their faithful attachment to their
Sovereign and the country which gave either themselves or their ancestors
birth, on the true policy which the United Kingdom must maintain in supporting
the Colonies, which send their produce to the Mother Country, and take in
return her manufactures of iron, clothes, malt liquors, in fact almost every
thing which is used in the mode of agriculture suited to these countries, in
the sugar and other manufactories; every article of apparel worn, every luxury
enjoyed, and many of the necessaries of life, against foreigners with whom
commerce is carried on by right of conquest: possessing no claim of attachment
to Britain and Britain's Sovereign, no claim of reciprocal advantages in
commerce, which will bear a comparison with those derived by the United Kingdom
from the consumption in these Colonies of Home manufactures.
Petitioners pray your Royal Highness will graciously consider that all these
advantages to the Mother Country will be lost by suffering increased quantities
of sugar to be brought from the East Indies. - Indigo formerly was the produce
of the West Indies; at the present day, there does not exist an Indigo
manufactory in the British West India Islands, they have departed to the East,
never to return: - a country from whom Britain cannot obtain the benefits she
does from her West India Colonies, inasmuch as East India manufactures for
almost all her wants.
Petitioners, in the plain and unadorned language of truth, have thus humbly
represented to your Royal Highness the certainty of their ruin, and the
mischiefs to be expected by Great Britain to her Manufacturers, her Commerce,
her Nay, and to her Colonies, with the firm reliance that your Royal Highness
will graciously condescend to direct such measures as in your Royal Highness's
wisdom may seem proper to be taken, to avert their ruin, and preserve the
blessings which the commerce of these unfortunate Countries has long poured
into the bosom of Great Britain."
anniversary of His Majesty's birth-day, was yesterday commemorated as usual, by
the Troops, in garrison; the Militia, stationed at head-quarters; the Fort, and
Shipping. About eleven o'clock, the Combined-Battalions assembled on the ground
of exercise; and soon after, His Excellency the Acting-Governor, left the
King's House for the purpose of receiving the honors of the field, attended by
his Aides-de-Camp, and other Military Gentlemen. Admirable precision marked the
fue-de-joie [sic]. But the only novel circumstance attending the
commemoration, was the Grand Dinner given by the Officers of the Militia, at
the Union-Coffee-House, to the Governor and Suite; Lieutenant Colonel Codd, and
the Officers of the 60th; the Officers of the Ordnance, Commissariat, and
Engineer Departments, &c. These distinguished personages sat down to an
elegant entertainment, about six o'clock. A detachment of the light-company of
the Militia was on duty the whole of the evening - as was the Band of the 60th.
The company did not depart until an early hour this morning.
Exchange of Colonial Paper Money, closed on the 1st instant.
Berbice Gazette of Saturday last, contains a rather extraordinary article. It
is a philippic against His Majesty's Ministers, for taking in
trust, the alien property in Surinam!
from the Custom-House, on the 2d instant - the schooner Brothers, Tynes, for
this Life - on Friday last - C. P. Brotherson, Esqr. at his residence, at the
Sandhills. Also J. Trigger, Cumingsburg.
