On Thursday the 13th of May, [see 18130424EDRG] . . .
We communicated on Saturday, on authority of advices received, two very important articles of American intelligence – the one relating to the surrender of Harrison, and the destruction of a naval force on the lakes – the other, to the arrival at Washington, of a Russian Ambassador. But we now present, a most heart-breaking lamentation and complaint, on the part of JONATHAN himself.
A system of blockade (says he), the most rigorous and extensive is at length established; and not a vessel, however protected or on whatever pretence, permitted to pass! The licences even of the British Consul or Spanish Ambassador, are worse than useless! From our fishing-boats to our Indiamen – nothing escapes the rapacity of the British squadrons! With such impunity do they trample on the rights of nations, that smuggling the most sacred of all, is prevented; and our own pilot-boats are made the instruments of our destruction! So grossly are our flags insulted; and our waters troubled – that vexation and the yellow-fever are become synonymous in effect, and we die daily! Our gallant little navy does its best but they will not respect it: - we hang their spies, to be sure – but our army is laughed at! France is not true to her word – Russia has offered her mediation – but England will make no concession!
The above, in fact, is the substance of the advices before-mentioned. The picture is not the least overcharged. We even expected more. We anticipated their towns in ashes, their states disunited, their flag without a mast to bear it. And who would not, had the following circumstance been known before?
"The Marshal of the United States for the District of South-Carolina, has detained in custody, twelve British subjects, as hostages for the lives of six American seamen, who have been taken out of the privateer Sarah-Ann, at Nassau, and sent to Jamaica to be tried for treason."
This is indeed, retaliation; and again we ask, who would not have expected more? But the forbearance of Great Britain, until too deeply goaded – is only equalled by her vengeance, when no longer withheld. The time, however, is now come; and nothing but a powerful mediation can save America.
the ensuing columns will be found – further particulars of Naval
Proceedings in the Adriatic; new Regulations for the British Army; a short, but
authentic, Narrative of Bonaparte's Retreat from Moscow to Wilna; an account of
Wellington's lathe Visit to Lisbon; and a most delectable Address from the
Senate of Italy, to the Tyrant of France.
No arrival or departure since Saturday. [centered]
