- I am of opinion that, the dispute created by the American People with the
British Government, (should it ever open into actual war) cannot be productive
of those inconveniences in the West Indies which continues to be surmised. The
Islands and Colonies are the chief market for the productions of the Southern
and Middle States. - The Northern States also export to the West Indies the
major part of the articles received in exchange for their imports and
redundancy of their home Manufactures, supplyed to the aforementioned States,
who have no other means of payment than the production of their farms. - A
Southern or a Middle State, Trader, or Farmer, urged by a Northern Merchant for
the liquidation of a debt only sixty days old; having his stores filled with
country produce suited for the West India consumption, would receive the
intelligence of an embargo with an ill grace. - The result of their boasted
embargo in 1795, directed in consequence of a dislike of the 12th art. of Mr.
John Jay's Treaty with England, limiting the Tonnage of American Vessels
employed in the West India Trade, will operate strongly against their
attempting any similar measure in haste: It was created by native impetuosity,
and died by the clamours of an American mob. - The British Ministry, never once
interferred. -- As to the dull tale of west India Produce in the U.S. I mean
such, as, our Planters usually appropriate for the discharge of contingencies,
it is evident the cause does not arise in America, but, from the great increase
of our West India property, and the destructive intercourse we have permitted
the Americans to carry on with the Islands of our Enemies since the
commencement of the present war. - We have purchased their cargoes, paid them
in specie, which they have uniformly carried to the enemy and purchased his
produce, thereby draining us of our money and vauntingly supplying our foes
with the means of carring [sic] on, an energetick war against us. - Admitting
Rum, and Molasses to be as requisite for the existence of an American, as
Boards, Staves and Shingles, are necessary for the convenience of the West
India Planter, yet the species of intercourse here alluded to, not only lessens
the demand for our produce, but is also, notoriously productive of every evil
I've adverted to.
Tuesday last the Mail-Boat arrived here with the second September Mail, which

inability of the present Proprietors to continue the Cultivation, caused by a
recent misfortune induces them to offer it as a great Bargain, - they are
enabled to give good terms and require very little down; an additional
advantage which a Purchaser at this time would have, is, there being at present
a Crop upon the Trees. The Land is said to be excellent, and is eligibly
situated with regard to Pomeroon; the present back-dam being only about 800
Roods from that river. These Lots will be sold either together or separate.

rumours are in circulation unfavourable to the amicable adjustment of our
differences with America. Mr. Monroe's intended departure for America has
given currency and credit to these rumours, and has made many suppose war with
America inevitable. Mr. Monroe's departure, however, is not at all connected
with the differences between the two Powers. - It must be recollected, that Mr.
Monroe has for some time had a successor to him in this country in the person
of Mr. Pinckney. It was natural, therefore, to suppose, that he would not
remain long here after his successor's arrival. - He remained longer than he
intended, in order to assist Mr. Pinckney in the negociation of the Treaty
concluded by the late Ministers. - But Mr. Monroe aspires, we understand, to
the Presidency of the United States, and as the period of election is
approaching, and it is reported that Mr. Jefferson will not offer himself
again, Mr. Monroe is hastening his departure in order to endeavour to secure
the object of his ambition. We believe Mr. Monroe has always been a favourite
with that party which seems to have the most influence in America at present.

Decree has been published by the Dutch Government, against the Commerce of this
Country. It bears date the 2d instant, and in severity exceeds all former
regulations upon the same subject. It interdicts all communication with
Holland in terms so precise and positive, as leave no hope of exception or
[Star] are informed, and we believe our information is correct, that our
Government has resolved to retaliate on France by a Proclamation exactly on the
model of the French decree of blockade. Not only the coasts of France and of
Italy, but of every European State under the influence and controul of Napoleon
- as also all foreign dependencies so circumstanced, will be declared in a
state of blockade, and all vessels going to or coming from any of them, will be
declared legal prizes. This will settle at once the clamours of the Americans
respecting their rights to trade with the French Colonies - carrying, or
pretending to carry their produce to an American port, and afterwards to
re-ship the same for Bordeaux and other French ports.
understand that the definitive answer given by Ministers to Mr. Monroe (who has
not yet taken his departure) was exactly conformable to the principles that are
about to be adopted. Mr. Monroe, it seems, was instructed to declare, that
should the British Government refuse to concede the points demanded by America,
the Non-Importation Act would immediately be enforced. The reply was, "I
am commanded by His Majesty to inform you, that the issue of such an order by
the American Government may be considered and held as a declaration of
the points respecting the right of search, Mr. Monroe was informed, that this
country will maintain its right not only respecting goods but seamen - not even
excepting American ships of war.
