this Morning - the sloop Blackbird, Hall, from Barbados. - Papers to the 1st
Barbados, and the above arrival, American Advices have been received to a late
small, but gallant British Army in Upper Canada, are proceding [sic] in a career, proportionally
brilliant to its means. Not only, if a subsequent extract be true, has Harrison
(that celebrated American General who was to perform those wonderful feats his
predecessors failed at) been himself made prisoner, and the troops under his
command; but a fort on the lines has been destroyed, and a number of armed
vessels on the lakes.
welcome intelligence, however, does not at present come in an official form -
no more than that which will be found below, respecting the arrival at
Washington, of a Russian Ambassador. But, notwithstanding they are without that
definitive mark of fact; they are, we think, too probable to be doubted. The
former, for a variety of reasons; - the later, from the well-known circumstance
of Joel Barlows's late Mission to the North of Europe.
only European Intelligence, communicated by the Papers before us, is contained
in the following:
note: European news not transcribed]
announced in our Gazette of the 18th of April, that both Houses of the British
Parliament had passed, an Unanimous Vote in favour of the War with America.
But, till the present moment, we never had an opportunity of giving the Debates
on that occasion, the attention they deserved. In the ensuing columns will
therefore be found, as complete a sketch as our limits permitted; and it will
also appear, so great a height had unanimity attained, that no opposition was
offered even from the American Whitbread, or the African Wilberforce.
OF LORDS, [centered]
observed, that his object in addressing their Lordships was, to call upon the
House to declare, whether the Government of this country had acted properly in
rejecting the proposition made on the part of America, to suspend the exercise
of our undoubted right to search for our own seamen during the discussion of
the question, whether any substitute for the present mode of exercising it
could be found, and that, too, without stating the regulation in the first
instance. - His Lordship said, that the right which the Americans called upon
us to abandon was our right of impressment - a right which we had always
exercised, without dispute, in regard to other countries - a right which we
permitted other countries to exercise in regard to us - a right which we had
uniformly acted upon, and one which we could not abandon without sapping the
foundation of our maritime greatness - essential to the interests of Europe,
and even to those of America herself. But Mr. Monroe had said, that a different
regulation might be adopted to effectuate the same object. For these ten years,
the American Government had been finding fault with its exercise, and yet they
had never attempted to state any such regulation. Why did they not bring
forward their regulation, that it might be seen whether it was really
calculated to answer the purpose? We did not claim the exercise of the right as
far as respected national ships. Why did they not try the efficacy of their
regulation, in regard to these ships? But they had adopted no such regulation;
on the contrary, in that country where the practice of taking the seamen of
this country into their ships had most prevailed, all representation on the
subject had been treated with the most marked and uniform neglect. At the very
moment when they tendered some regulation on this subject, they held out
unexampled encouragements to desertion. They actually claimed the right of
cancelling the allegiance due to this country from its own subjects; and that
too in time of war, when such a pretension, if acted upon to a great extent,
must be peculiarly pernicious. The condition for becoming a citizen of the
United States was a residence of five years, and a residence merely, without
any property or interest in that country. Their Lordships must at once perceive
how easily testimonials of such a residence might be fabricated, especially
where there was no interest to prove the allegation false. For the small sum of
one dollar, any person upon the attestation of two witnesses might get a letter
of citizenship, which was to be prima facie evidence that he was a citizen. - When some
regulation was proposed, Mr. Monroe distinctly stated that it was not to affect
people of that description. He did not mean to say, that under no circumstances
ought we ever to accede to any regulation different from our present mode of
exercising our right of searching for and taking our own seamen; but certainly
we ought never to abandon the right itself, nor ought we to give up our present
mode of exercising it, till we saw how any other regulation that might be
proposed would operate in securing to us the same result. The Americans were
industriously informed by their Government, that Great Britain was so much
pressed at present, that if they only stood firm, this country must yield to
their unreasonable demands. He hoped, however, that their Lordships would shew,
by their vote on this night, that this country was not so much pressed by the
difficulties of the times - not so weak or divided in policy as to shrink from
going to the foot of the Throne, to express their approbation of determined
resistance, when the most essential right, and interests of their country were
at stake. In this hope, he proposed that an Address to this effect should be
presented to the Regent -
the House had taken into its serious consideration the papers laid before them
in regard to the war with America; and while they deeply regretted the
necessity of commencing hostilities, they yet entirely approved of the
resistance made to pretensions which could not have been acceded to without
abandoning the most essential rights of the country; and that His Royal
Highness the Prince Regent might rely upon their zealous support of such
measures as might be calculated to carry on the war with vigour."
Address being read by the Chancellor,
Marquis of Landsdowne, had certainly expected, that when the Orders were
repealed, America would have returned to such a pacific disposition as would
have paved the way for the adjustment of other differences. - Adverting to the
impressment of our own seamen, he stated that he could not perceive that there
was any difference in regard to the principle: the dispute was about certain
abuses which were alleged to exist in the practice. The principle might be
admitted, that we had a right to the allegiance of our own subjects; but it
would be justly added, that we ought not to extend that in practice so far as
to press American seamen into our service; and there could be no doubt but we
ought to endeavour, as much as possible, to prevent any such abuses. In a
question, then, involving so much national prejudice, it was essential that the
parties should meet with a disposition mutually to conciliate. He could no [sic] yet abandon the
hope that means might still be found for the restoration of peace, and placing
that peace upon a permanent footing; and he was glad to find some manifestation
of such a disposition to enter into discussion for that purpose, both in the
proposition of Mr. Monroe to Sir John B. Warren, and in the declaration of the
Prince Regent; though he admitted that the proposition of Mr. Monroe was not
such as could with propriety have been accepted. If the Orders in Council had
been sooner recalled, he was convinced that this war would never have taken place;
for it appeared from these papers, that it would have been impossible for the
Government to have got the people to second its views. When we talked of the
hostile disposition of the American Government, we ought to consider what was
the nature of that Government. If there was any country in the world where
public opinion had an immediate operation on the Government, it was America. If
then, twenty years ago, the disposition of America was known to be highly
favourable to this country, we ought to review our own conduct and policy, that
we might ascertain whether there was any thing in that conduct to give just
occasion for the hostile disposition which was now said to exist. In all our
transactions with foreign countries, and especially with America, we ought to
study the temper, disposition, and even prejudices, not only of the Government,
but of the people; not, however, with a view to surrender our own right, but to
conciliate, as far as was consistent with the interests and honour of our own
country, the good opinions both of the rulers and the subjects of other
countries. But while he recommended a mild, temperate, and conciliating
conduct, in time of peace, he was far from recommending a slow and dilatory
mode of carrying on war. When war had once commenced, there was no resource,
but a vigorous and determined prosecution of it, in order to bring it to a
speedy and favourable conclusion. The want of this proper vigour in the
prosecution of the war was palpable, and deeply to be lamented; for if there
was any thing more calculated to generate contempt and confidence in an enemy,
it was the union of lofty pretensions with insufficient means and dilatory
execution. He could not refuse his assent to the present Address: but at the
same time, he hoped the Government would evince every disposition, without
sacrificing the honour of the country, to come to some amicable arrangement in
regard to the practice of impressing our seamen from American ships, without
abandoning the principle.
Melville was perfectly ready at any time to enter minutely into the discussion
of the subject, and to show that there had been no negligence or misconduct in
the conduct of the naval war on the part of any branch of the Government.
Wellesley fully agreed in the general tenor of the Address. In its justice - in
the importance of its object - in the importance of exerting all our powers for
the end of bringing the enemy to a due sense of their situation with respect to
war with England - in the absolute necessity, upon all sound and rational
views, of being unanimous in the prosecution of the present struggle, and
pledging the Legislature to the Government; but he was anxious, that while he
approved of the general object of the Address, it should be understood that he
differed widely from it, as to the conduct of the war.
Liverpool said, that the motives set forth by America were not her motives. Who
could now believe, that the right of impressment was the actual cause. That
right was, no doubt, an old and solemn right of England; but it was not a
nature that refused to admit of modifications. Amicable discussions might have
reduced the whole controversy to nothing: but was it to be believed, that
America wanted this! The war was not one of interest, but of passion and
inflamed feelings. As to the imputation of negligence to our Navy for the
escape of the enemy's squadrons so far from wondering that such circumstances
sometimes occurred, he was only surprised that they occurred so seldom. But if
America was led on by passion, it was fit that there should be no passion here;
and that a war begun in justice should receive the support - the rational and
unanimous support - of the Legislature.
Holland expressed his belief, that from the extreme nicety of the point on which
the negociation broke off, it might not be altogether hopeless of renewal. On
the question of naturalization, there could be no doubt that the King had a
right to the services of the natives of this country, and that the flag of the
merchant could not protect them. But strong as were the demands of America, we
had made stronger in our day. - He accidentally had taken up the Statute Book
on the table, and found a Statute of Anne, enacting, that any man, not merely
who resided in England, but in any other country, and took the oaths of
allegiance to the Queen, should be considered as under English protection. With
some objection, he approved the tenor of the Address.
Harrowby in [illegible] say, that if the Americans insisted on our giving up
the right of impressment, there was no probable end of the dispute between the
two countries; and interminable war must ensue; and he thought that all who
heard him would be ready to expend their last shilling in such a cause.
Erskine agreed that the war which America was waging against us was a war of
passion, but it was a passion provoked by our aggression. There were principles
of honour among nations, as there were among individuals; and the party first
aggrieved must not be the first to succumb. As to the proposal respecting the
impressment of seamen, in his mind there was a great difference between
suspending a right, and altogether giving it up. America did not call upon us
to give up this right, but to take time to consider whether it might not be suspended.
Lord Chancellor must protest against the doctrine of his Learned and Noble
Friend, that our most important rights ought to be suspended even for a moment.
Unless America should think proper to alter her tone, he did not see how the
national differences could be settled.
motion was carried without a division.
OF COMMONS, [centered]
Castlereagh entered upon this subject in the same manner, and almost in the
same words as those adopted by Earl Bathurst in the other House, and concluded
by moving a similar address.
A. Haring did not believe that the assertions of the Noble Lord were correct as
to the hostile disposition of the American Government, whose conduct was
influenced by the European system of Politics. He contended, that the Orders in
Council were in fact, with them the grounds of the declaration of war. He did
not believe that the Noble Lord had at all exaggerated the frauds that were
practiced in granting Certificates of American citizenship. The Noble Lord
calculated the number of native Americans on board our navy at about 1600; and
the proportion of British seamen in the American marine service would not be
over-rated, if stated at that of ten to one- (Hear!) - This, to be sure, was a
very satisfactory state of things - But the Noble Lord talked somewhat too
lightly of 1600 Americans being in our Navy - He would ask, what would be the
indignant feelings of the people of this country, if they knew that so many of
their fellow citizens were forcibly compelled to serve in the navy of another
Power? The Hon. Gentleman then condemned the conduct of the war.
A. J. Foster said, the Hon. Gentleman had asked whether, if the revocation of
the Orders in Council had been known in America before the Declaration of War,
such knowledge would not have prevented the Declaration? This, he said, was a
point on which he could not venture to give a decided opinion. It was certain,
that in all his communications with Mr. Monroe and the American Government,
great stress was laid on the Orders in Council; and he always looked on them as
the grievances of which not only the Government but the American people,
complained most heavily. The war party, he believed, had taken great pains to
keep alive and forment every subject of dispute which had for many years
incidentally arisen between the two countries. He thought the Government were
put sufficiently masters of their own conduct; nor did he believe they could
have prevailed on Congress, last year, to have acted otherwise than they did.
There were two parties in America that were very warm against this country. One
of them had been in favour of the French revolution from its commencement, the
other was what was called the Anti-Anglican party, who were very active in
using every effort to bring about a war with this country. While Washington
lived, he was able to influence them so far as to make them regard their own
interests, but when he died they had succeeded in obtaining a majority - not a
real majority of the people of America - but a majority of Congress, which they
had effected by creating new States, and making new Senates in the southern
parts of America, by which means they had been able to out-vote the Northern
States, to their very great injury. New settlers continually arrive in America,
and particularly from Ireland. The more intelligent of them lost not a moment
in acquiring a seat in Congress, and they had been among the foremost and
loudest in their clamours against this country. He himself knew of six Irishmen
who were in Congress, and they all voted for the war.
Whitbread lamented, that with the navy of Great Britain against that of
America, which consisted of only four frigates and a few sloops, two of our
finest frigates were now in their possession, captured by only two of theirs;
this was a reverse which English officers and English sailors had not before
been used to; and from such a contemptible navy as that of America had always
been held, and no one could suppose such an event could have taken place.
Canning felt himself called upon no [sic] declare with all the
candour which was due to question of magnitude, that the Noble Lord
(Castlereagh) had his unqualified support in his vindication of the real and
indisputable right of Great Britain; although he was at the same time free to
confess, that in several points very material to the consideration of the
subject, he differed most essentially from the Noble Lord. With the naval
establishment of Great Britain he had no fault to find; but he had to find
fault with the distributions and employment of it. - He had to express his
surprise, that the pen was held in the hand of the Admiral which ought to have
launched the thunder. He felt it would be altogether unjust to blame the skill
and courage of the officers and men in our service; yet he was bound to
declare, that he was not one of those who said, that we ought not to think of
the capture of the Guerriere and the Macedonian. His decided opinion was, that
it could not be too deeply thought of. It was a subject which in every sense
was calculated to rouse the patriotism and excite the sensibilities of the
country. The spirit of our seamen had been unconquerable, and any diminution of
the popular opinion with respect to that glorious and triumphant spirit, was to
his mind a dreadful and alarming consideration. He trusted, however, that the
spell which fascinated every mind in the confident expectation of our naval
victories, would never be broken; and that accumulated instances of triumphs no
less brilliant than those of former times would not cease to occur. What he had
chiefly to deplore was the unaccountable inactivity which was adopted, when
vigour and promptitude were dictated by the very state of things in America.
Croker said, that the view which the Right Hon. Gentleman had taken of this
subject arose from imperfect information. On the very day of the declaration of
war, Commodore Rodgers put to sea without orders; and a few days afterwards the
British squadron followed him, to cover and protect the Jamaica homeward-bound
fleet. Sir John Warren found him, and chased him (hear, hear!) and that gallant
Admiral had since received no mitigatory or restrained orders relative to the
offensive conduct he was to pursue. The whole question now turned on our right
of impressment; and on this subject an Hon. Gentleman (Mr. Whitbread) has
adopted an expression of Mr. Monroe, that "we naturalised foreign seamen
into our service, analogously to the manner in which the Americans naturalised
our seamen into theirs." This Mr. Croker denied; there hardly passed a day
in his life in which it did not fall to his duty to discharge seamen after more
than two years of British service, at the request of the country which claimed
their allegiance through its consul or otherwise. And yet, Mr. Monroe asserted,
that we impressed American seamen and kept them! Whereas an American
certificate of citizenship had inspite [sic – in spite] of all
the abuses which were known to be practised upon such documents, been always
respected by the Admiralty. It was but the other day that a man produced a
certificate protecting a person of light eyes and fair complexion; the man was
a Mulatto! (a laugh). And, at another time, a certificate was produced in
London, purporting to have been sworn at New-York five days before (a laugh).
Surely, if this man had the faculty of traveling from New-York to London in
five days, he needed not to have applied to any body for a discharge from any
place. - The question was carried nem. con.
