THE Subscriber begs leave to inform his Friends and the Public in general, that he will open his
Plantation Vlissingen,
on Thursday next, the 29th instant; where, from the considerable additions, improvements, and decorations, he has made to the premises, he will be enabled to provide public, and other entertainments, to any extent: assuring the public, that no attention will be wanting, no expence spared, to render his establishment truly respectable, agreeable, and convenient. The bed-rooms are particularly spacious and airy, and the stable is one of the best in the colony. Thus he offers himself a candidate for public favour, to merit which, will always be his greatest satisfaction.
He returns his grateful acknowledgements to those gentlemen who formerly frequented his house, for their punctuality in general; yet he is sorry to observe, that there, is a great number of accounts and obligations not yet settled; he therefore hopes that all such will be immediately liquidated.
He offers for Sale or Hire, to an approved purchaser or tenant, his House on the Brick Dam, Stabroek, situated next to the house of the Revd. G. RYK. - It is a comfortable house for a small family, having a good stable, kitchen, &c. and a neat little garden.

Independent of the Energlen, Capt. Hinson, from Surinam, we have no arrival to announce since our last.

A PUBLIC DINNER is to be given, by a number of Gentlemen in Town, at the Union-Coffee House, on Monday next, in honour of Major-General CARMICHAEL; and we are authorised, by the Stewards, to inform the Subscribers, that dinner will be on the table exactly at five o'clock.


We understand the Demerary Races will commence on Tuesday the 19th of September, at half past four o'clock, on the Kitty Course, and continue for the three following evenings. There are already fourteen horses in training, and much sport is expected. A Subscription Ball is also in agitation for Friday the 22d. which, it is hoped will induce the Ladies to honour the Races with their presence, for whose accommodation tents will be pitched on the Course.

Negociation with America.

Mentioned in our last.

Friday, June 21.

Mr. Whitbread said, he was convinced the Report of the Committee to which the Petition of the distressed Manufacturers have been referred was perfectly correct; and to do that which had been recommended for their relief would have been indicative of madness or folly. It would have been like throwing water on the burning coals of a furnace, the flame of which, on the return of the blast, would burst with three-fold violence. He, however, did not contemplate the evil as confined to the weaver - all the classes of society were affected - the merchant, as well as the manufacturer, was on the verge of ruin. Knowing the representation which had been lately made to the Right Hon. Gentleman opposite, from various quarters, as to the state of commercial credit - knowing the variation of feeling which operated at the Royal Exchange, and on the various exchanges throughout the country - knowing from what had fallen, on a former evening, from the Right Hon. Gentleman opposite, when he hinted that the troops of France were likely to be employed in the North of Europe, and which shadow was grasped at with avidity by the people, that the commerce of the country was in a critical state - knowing that an expedient had been resorted to for the relief of the manufacturer, which had failed; for the issue of Exchequer Bills, which, in itself forcibly pointed out the situation of the country, had not reached its destination, the operative manufacturer - could the House, acquainted with these things, refrain from inquiring into their origin? - The Report acknowledged that the distress felt by the weavers was very great, and it also stated, that no relief could be granted to them. By what cause were such evil effects produced? Must they not be attributed to that ruinous commercial policy, which had been so long persisted in? From its sources, all the way down its stream, to the situation in which the country then was, could the evils be easily traced. - On all these topics he would have spoken at length, if the discussion which had been postponed had come on that evening. The adjudication which had taken place with respect to the Fox, was, he thought, throwing away the scabbard, in relation to America. On a former night he had told his opinion of the manner in which that country had been used. The papers then under his hands, fully supported that opinion. Those papers the Right. Hon. Gentleman had refused to lay before the House, but they had now been published in America - they were now before the world - and it was his determination, before he sat down, to move that those papers should be laid before the House officially. He thought America had been very illtreated. That country, from her situation, and from her increasing power, if, in a state of amity with Great Britain, might render her the most essential services; but she had been treated more like an humble dependent on an illiberal protector, than as an equal, free, and independent state. They had been told, that every hope might be cherished; that an accommodation would take place. But let the House look to what had appeared, within a few days, in all the public prints - an engagement had absolutely taken place between a British and an American ship. He did not mean to say, that the renconter [sic] of the two vessels (the President and Little Belt) was sanctioned by either Government, but it shewed that, by degrees, they were approaching to a state of warfare, which, if persisted in, would overthrow the resources of the country. The distressed weavers complained of their miserable situation, and, urged on by desperation, pointed out what they conceived a remedy. The House saw their distress, but could grant them no relief. Yet, in such a state of things, what had they heard but a few days before? Why, they were informed by the Right Hon. Gentleman opposite, in a pompous strain, of the prosperity of the country, and the great increase of the revenue. But, at the very period this declaration was made, he attempted to impose a tax on the raw material of that manufacture, which was already so much impaired. It was true, he gave up the project - but he did so in a boastful manner, and the Right Hon. Gentleman near him (Mr. Rose) the Vice-President of the Board of Trade, had acted in the same manner. - The Right Hon. Gentleman said, 'I will give up the tax, and you may boast of what you have achieved: (and, said Mr. Whitbread, 'I do boast of the share I took in the transaction,') I can do without it, nor will I impose a new tax in lieu of it." But this was gross delusion - for he well knew, in case of a deficit, he could have recourse to the war taxes. But what did the manufacturers say to this attempt? "What can you tax us, suffering, as you yourselves acknowledge, from the pressure of the times - and for whom, you say, Parliament can devise no relief?" It was cruel thus to blow hot and cold with the same breath - to tell those people of the prosperity of the country, while they were in the deepest distress - to speak of general prosperity, while so many were suffering in the severest manner.
He would now call the attention of the House to extracts which he would read from the Correspondence then before him. He did not mean to make use of the papers in the present Session, but it was his wish that they should be laid on the table, that, early in the ensuing Session, they might be taken into consideration. On the 2d of January, 1810, Mr. Pinckney wrote, on the subject of his mission, to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. To this letter he received an answer in the latter end of March - an interval of three months. Mr. Pinckney, in noticing this to his own Government, observed, "that though he had expected some delay, he did not imagine it would have been so long." When such a delay at this was known to have taken place, was it proper that the House should remain in a state of supineness? Should they be satisfied with the declaration, that it was improper to lay those papers before them? He would ask, why should Marquis Wellesley have permitted so long a period to elapse, without answering Mr. Pinckney's letter? On the 30th of April, Mr. Pinckney addressed a letter to the Secretary of State on the subject of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, to which no answer whatever was returned. At a subsequent period, he wrote another letter complaining that papers, purporting to be those of American vessels, were publicly forged in London, and made an open article of traffic. To this complaint no answer was returned. On the 23d of May, the American Minister addressed a note to Marquis Wellesley, referring to that of the 30th of April, on the subject of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, and requesting an answer to the points therein contained. No answer was, however, returned. When Mr. Pinckney wrote to the Secretary of State, as to the delay in sending out a British Minister to America, a verbal answer was returned that it should speedily be done. On the 21st of August, Mr. Pinckney addressed Marquis Wellesley on the blockading system, but no answer was given. On the 23d of the same month, the American Minister dispatched a note to the Secretary of State, respecting the revocation of the Berlin and Milan Decrees. In six days afterwards an answer was returned. Soon after that period, Mr. Pinckney wrote a note relative to certain seamen who had been impressed by one of the English Commanders; to this representation no answer was given, but the men were released. This fact he wished the House particularly to notice. The American Minister complained that an improper authority had been exercised. - No explanation is given, no apology is made, but the assumed right is given up, by the restoration of the men - Could any thing, in common life, between man and man, be more insulting? But such conduct made use of by one state to another, deserved still greater reprehension. And yet the Gentleman opposite talked of the conciliating spirit by which they were actuated, although, in the course of the negociation, the common forms of diplomacy had been departed from.
On the 8th of December Mr. Pinckney addressed Marquis Wellesley on the subject of the Fox. The answer given to his note was, that the King's Advocate had been desired to stop all procedings [sic] in that case, and every other connected with it. On the 10th of December Mr. Pinckney wrote his last note, which comprised all the disputed points, and to that a very short answer was given. The House having heard this statement, would he hoped accede to the Motion, that the papers might be placed in the hands of every Gentleman. He well knew the sensations which were felt on the exchange at London, Liverpool, and all great maritime towns. There was no safe mode in which capital could be expended - there was no employment for the poor manufacturer. - If some alteration was not made in the system for the improvement of the situation of that numerous body of men, their misery must continue to increase; and although they had pledged themselves to be content with the decision of the House, still, as hunger was a hard task-master, they might be led to dangerous acts, which God avert! - Under all these circumstances, he thought the state of our relations with America a subject of the most vital importance. The Honourable Gentlemen concluded by moving -
"That an Humble Address be presented to the Prince Regent, praying that he will be graciously pleased to order that copies of all correspondence between the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and Mr. Pinckney, the American Minister, during the year 1810, be laid before the House."
The Chancellor of the Exchequer observed, that he did not think the Hon. Gentleman himself could expect the House to accede to to [sic] his motion, brought forward, as it had been, in such an extraordinary manner, and without [paper fold] notice. The Hon. Gentleman had stated, that [paper fold] mean to make any Parliamentary use of the Paper[paper fold] the present Session; and he thought, if there was any case, which, more than another, called for a specific notice, it was when no immediate proceeding was intended to be founded on the documents called for. If it were proved that evil consequences were likely to arise from delay, then, indeed, the House might dispense with the customary form, and entertain the motion. No ground of that description was laid in the present case. The House were called on, suddenly and unexpectedly, to grant those papers, merely because the Honourable Gentleman would leave town on Monday. He did not know that any thing had occurred within the last few days which could induce the Hon. Gentleman to press this motion. - [Mr. Whitbread observed, across the table, "the Papers themselves, which had been but a short time in his possession, and which the Right Hon. Gentleman had refused to part."] - He contended, that the Hon. Gentleman should have given a proper notice of his motion, and it would have been more correct if he had waited for his opportunity of replying, than to interrupt him by actions and expressions.
The House, he was assured, would be of opinion that the motion could not be acceded to; and the Hon. Gentleman would lose nothing by their decision, as, according to his own statement he intended to let the matter rest until the next session.
He appeared to have submitted the motion to the House merely for the purpose of making a speech and that object he had attained. His desire to have the Papers laid before the House would be complied with at the beginning of the ensuing Session, if circumstances, permitted it. He conceived the Hon. Gentleman came forward with his motion at a very ungracious time. At a period when they were ignorant of what effect Mr. Foster's mission had produced, at such a time did he come forward with his tirade. He has stated what he felt on the subject - that the American Government had been insulted and their national honour contemned [sic]! - No advantage, he was convinced, could be derived from the production of the correspondence half so great as the mischief which was to be apprehended from it. As to the observations he had made on the correspondence, he would only say, that when an Hon. Gentleman came forward, and, without notice, referred to dates, and continued on facts, not originating, it should be observed, with this Government, but with that of America, it was utterly impossible for him to enter on an explanation. He had not an idea that the slightest discussions would have taken place in consequence of his moving to postpone the consideration of the Report. But, when the proper period arrived, when the negociation between the two countries was terminated, then he could have no objection in giving every satisfaction on the subject. With whatever instructions Mr. Foster had been sent out, it could no be expected that Government would disclose the views they entertained, at a premature period. It would be most impolitic to lay before the House any statement on the subject. With respect to what the Hon. Gentleman had said, as to the propriety of the Report on the Manufacturer's Petitions he was glad to find that their opinions coincided. - He was sorry however to hear the remarks he had made respecting the cause of their distresses. - At a time he himself agreed that no relief could be extended to them, he thought those remarks might have been spared. He contended, that, if this country had pursued a different course from which he had followed - if she had not resisted the efforts made by the enemy against the commerce of England - still France would have persevered in the system she had adopted - she would not have relaxed in her exertions. This country would have felt the pressure as severely as she did now, while the Continent, by means of neutral vessels, would be freed from all those inconveniences which are at present experienced there much more severely than in Great Britain. If the advice of the Hon. Gentleman had been followed, this country would endure all the evils complained of, while the enemy would suffer none.
There, was, therefore, he thought, a fair argument, that the whole of the distresses of this country had not originated in the system adopted by Ministers. He, therefore, was sorry the Hon. Gentleman had indulged himself in so many remarks on the subject. It was telling the manufacturers to impute none of their misfortunes to the conduct of the enemy, but to attribute them all to the measures of their own Government. The Hon. Gentleman had introduced what had fallen from him on a former night, as to the probability of the armies of France finding so much employment in another part of Europe, that great exertions could not be made on the Peninsula by the enemy, and it seemed as if he had been understood to hint that there were negociations carrying on with Russia. Never had there been a more mistaken inference; he merely stated, that, from the general appearance of the north of Europe, it was not probable that France would send the whole of her force to the present theatre of war. The Hon. Gentleman had found fault with his having described the finances of the country as in a prosperous state. In what he had stated, he was fully borne out by the official accounts - the customs, the excise, the receipt of Exchequer, had all been extremely productive. Surely, he was not to assert the contrary, because the Petitions from the manufacturers lay on their table. As to the tax which he had proposed on cotton, he did not believe, if it had been carried into effect, that 1 lb. less would have been used - and the measure would have encouraged the importation in British vessels instead of neutrals. But as several Gentlemen, who were deeply interested in the subject, had encouraged an idea that the tax would have an evil tendency, he gave it up. The Right Hon. Gentleman concluded by expressing his wish that the House would not then agree to the motion, which might be entertained next Session with more propriety.
Mr. Whitbread replied. His motive for moving for the Papers at that moment was, that, a very short time elapsed since he became possessed of them all; and, as the Right Hon. Gentleman had repeatedly refused to produce them, he had abstained from submitting his motion, until he had procured them from America. As to his not having given notice, he would observe, that, when the Right Hon. Gentleman had brought forward his Resolution, as to the alternate precedence of orders and notices, he had stated his determination not to permit them to interfere with his right of submitting a motion to the House, when he considered it necessary. He was particularly desirous that those paper should be laid on the table, because it would prevent the Hon. Gentleman opposite from putting the same sentence in the Prince Regent's Speech, at the beginning of next Session, which they had done in the present. The Honourable Gentleman then, in an energetic strain, pointed out the ruin which, he conceived, awaited the country, if the present system were not altered. He would tell the manufacturer and the merchant, that those evils had been in a great measure produced by the support they had given to that system - the return of which was hailed with cheers at the Royal Exchange. The Hon. Baronet (Sir C. Price) might smile, as if all were peace within; but, he believed, the great body of of [sic] the people had very different feelings.
After a few words from Mr. Rose and Sir C. Price, the motion was negatived without a division.
