Extract of a tetter jrom iv/aartu. «»
“ We remark with pleasure, for some
time post, that the English and French
Journals are more impartial in the man manner
ner manner in which they express thems* lves on*
the subject of our war with the American
insurgents. The detention of fjie Ame American
rican American ship, the Firebrand, ilk tho Golf
of Mexico, gave occasion to an alarming
report on the part of the insurgents and
their friends in the Journals of the Unit,
ed States. According to them the ge general
neral general cry iq these States was, u War
with Spain t”—The persons who flutter,
cd themselves with too insane hope of
being able by such articles to lead the
American Senate into hostilities against
us, are those resiles*, turbulent men*
who, having nothing to loseyhope, under
the favor of disorder, to obtain posses,
sion of places and wealth. But surely
America, rjch and happy in her !aws,wiil
not put her prosperity to hazard fer the
sake of some miserable iutiigoeis, who,
on the dnwufal of revolutionary princi principles,
ples, principles, have been expelled from Europe
as incoherent element* rejected by the
social system. The United States
not espouse the cans* of rebeilioo.
Power too weli knows that public ns x
sistauce granted to the insurgents nf
Spanish America would cempromis' her
relations of friendship nor 6nlv with

interests which the future fate of their
Colonies Involve, by the ooiformi'y of
tho principle* whim govern th*
analogy of tb<- iinofoi tune* which tip**
bate so ien^eudured.

Aft«r the pacification of the Terra
Pirme, we declared Carthigena a free 1
p«rt for the allies and neutrals. The
aime had been previously done with re.
gard to the Havana and Porto Rico.
This example will also be followed in the
kingdoms which are not completely
tranquilized. It cannot therefore be
the interest of America to go to war
With us: in declaring the Gulf of
Mexico in a state of blockade, we act
according to an indisputable right. The
English- and American vessels found in
those seas,notwithstanding the blockade,
have been tried and a'fferwards released
with good fuilh. Spain has therefore
done every thing on her part to preserve
the relations of friendship' with the
United States,and is no more accountable
for fh* reports which grespread by male |
vol-nce, in ordw to produce contrary
dispositions, than the American'Senate
is for the expeditions,* which in spite of
its strict orders, sail daily from ports {
of the United States fer ports occupied
by the insurgents. For the rest, Spain,
after giving to Europe the most noble
example of patriotism, after having pur.
chased her existence with her blood, is
at last en the point of enjoying the re.
w'Srd'of her generous sacrifices.

The present Slate of affairs in this
Colony, in consequence of the sudden
fcT'i nnexpertprl rlia«nlu*ien of (he late
l‘.ou 2 of Assembly, affords just subject
tor and certainly calls for
uerious attention. By the strange and
unaccountable conduct of one gentleman,,
high in office and possessing consider,
abte influence, the cofbny has been
*Hwrwninto very great disorder. The
late House of Assembly was not merely
prorogued’but dissolved, before the ap.
propriation act, on which so much He.
pends, had passed into a Law ; in con.
sequence of which many evils have arisen
which will be severely felt by those
to whom they attach. They need not,
however, he stated, as they are known
to ail, and, I think, are qiore than sofifi.
cicntly reseated by all. That they are
evils no one will deny but that they
are only temporary Evils, I thin]? a
momenta reflection must satisfy any one
who will allow himself to think cooliy
on the subject. But to think coolly,and
reflect Impar tally, seems not to be the
order of the day. The original author
of all the Evils that wc suffer seems now
to b« overlooked and forgotten, and the
biame is wholly to another still higher
in Office, who l think is far less deser.
ving of Marne, than he is commonly re represented
presented represented to be. It must be confessed,
indeed, that without the interference of
his Mijfsiy** Representative, the Ileuse
of Assembly could not have been dissol.
ved, but on the other hand, when it is
considered to what heights the matter in
dUpute had been curried, with what per.
severance the House of Assembly were
pursuing the maintenance of their own
just rights, and with what obstinacy the
gentleman coucerned was denying and

opposing those rights, it cannot be,
matter of much surprise to any one,
that the Governor, |n a moment efalarm
for the immediate consequences that
were likely to ensue, should overlook
those that were more remote and take
the only method in his power to pot a
stop to the proceedings. That this was
exactly the case I wilt not be so bold as
positively to affirm, as I am not in Ms
Excellency’s confidence, nor have I the
most distant access to know his mind ;
but this I wilt Venture to affirm, that
what I have here advanced upon conjee,
ture, is the most likely account that has
yet been given of the affair. To put
the worst construction upon any man’s
actions that they will bear, is seldom, if
ever, consistent with justice. Till, there*
fore, more is known with certainty of
the affair, than iryet known, men ought
to be more cautions than I have reason to
think they are, in the motives which they
ascribe to bis Excellency on that ocea.
sion. The fart is, that men’s minds are
not a little agitated by the late eveuts,
and the passidns of a few seem too much
inflamed to allow them to thiok with
that candor and moderation, which they
w6uld observe off any other subject;
in consequence of which they magnify
“ (rifles, ahd draw hasty conclusions from

oot< The Attorney General in the heat
of argument before the Court threw
out a hint expressive of a doubt whether
any House of Assembly would ever after,
wards be called ; hence fears have been
and an ul»rm industriously
spread, that we were henceforth to be
deprived of (hat privilege. Can any
man seriously lay any stress on such* a
declaration? 1 should as soon believe
that the into House of Assembly were
all Numskulls, because he is said to have
1 honored them with that polita epithet.
His affirmation in both cas«s was entit.
lt dto equal weight, that is, to none at
11. It only shows the degree of passion
with which his mind was agitated at the
But it is said, the hint he threw out
respecting a future House of Assembly
has been shown by the event to be
.something more than the mere raving
of intemperate passion. For more than thana
a thana month has now . elapsed since the late
House was dissolved, and «* orders have
yet been issued for â–  new Election, as
is usually done in similar coses ; hence it
is concluded th.t th so two things, (he
hint thrown out by thfe Attorney General
and the delay in the issuing of orders for
a new Election, are intimately coin ed,
ed ; that the one is a confirmation of the
other; and that the Governor, influenced
by the opinion and advice of the Attorney
General, really intends to call no Legis Legislature
lature Legislature in future, but to govern henceforth
by his own absolute authority. Now
of all the ridiculous things i have ever
heard; this is realty the mast ridiculous.
Whether these two things have any con.
nectioa with one another, I know not;-
neither do 1 know the Governor’s rea reasons
sons reasons for the present def »y ; but were 1
to indulge a conjecture I should suppose,
that as the matter in dispute is referred
to the decision of the Prince Regent in
Council, and as it is extremely impro.
bable that a new House, even it it were
elected and summoned to meet, would
proceed to business till that affair be de.
ternrined, his Excellency may deem it
unnecessary to issue orders for the new
elections, till nearer the time when In.
strqctions may be expected to arrive
from home. This shows that, at least,
an innoceut construction may be put bn
the present delay ;and that this ionoceulj
construction is more reasonable, in it.‘

derived from the late events, or indeed
from any other that can happen, to jus.
tify so wild and so extravagant an idea
I am surprised, therefore, and astonished
to think that it should eyre have enter entered
ed entered intotha head of auy sensible man.
Let os consider, for a moment, -how
thema'ier really stands. This little
Colony has the happiness to be under
the protection and dominion of Great
Britain. Its governors are appointed
by the Crown, and are responsible lor
evrry act of their government to the
King ; they can do nothing, but in con conformity
formity conformity with the instructions they have
received, and if they should at any time
do otherwise, they are removeable at
pleasure. Will any Governor, therefore,
even entertain an idea, that he can go.
vern us in an arbitrary manner, or,
indetd, in any manner not consisted!
with his instructions ? Besides we have
an acknowledged Constitution, eveiy
way similar though subordinate to th»
Constitution of Gieat Britain ; and f i *
acts of our Legislature,as well a- (' •
legislature itself, have the same autho.
rity within he colony, which the Acts
of the British legislature have wiririu
the united Kingdom of Great Britain
and Ireland. Nay farther, the acts of
our legislature have ever been honored
with the approbation and assent of the
King or Prince Regent in his behalf
Now, though this Constitution may he
suspended in part for a time, in const*
quenc* of disputes that any arise, till the
King’s pleasure shall be known ; yet
it never can be annihilated by any other
power than that of the Sovereign, and
not even by him but io consequence of
some very great delinquency on our part,
such as would render us utterly unwor unworthy
thy unworthy o(the character of free subjects.
Why then all this djjst about the t*m t*mporarysuspension
porarysuspension t*mporarysuspension of a privilege, as if that
was a premeditated step towards a total
annihilation of the whole.
« '
So far, I presume, will the present
suspension be from leading to any such
measure, that it will doubtless be the
happy means, of confirming and strength,
ening all our legal and constitutional
privileges, and of rendering them less
liable to be disputed on any fu'ure occa occasion.
sion. occasion. If any abuses have indeed inad inadvertently
vertently inadvertently crept in, as the Attorney
General affirms, these will no deubt
bf leformed • but should even this
be the case, the rrform of abuses can
only (and to strength/-!), n< t to weaken,'
the authority of the Legislature. At all
events, the decision which may naturally
be expected to be given in this unhappy
dispute will tend greatly to our ndvan.
tage. Our Privileges, a« far us they
are legal and constitutional, will not
•nly be confirmed but more accurately
defined, and our coir-ti nUuD itself ren.
derrd wore stable and more durable.
Ought we not then t , wau with patience,
and contentedly submit to rite evils of
which we complain, (or a few months at
least till that decision can be given ?
A little sober reflection, 1 think, cannot
fail to convince us, that this must be our
wisest measure. But while men are
under the dominion of passion and pre.
judice, they seldom adopt those mea.
*ures which moderation would point out
as the wisest and bast; tht'V commonly
pursue a present object, whatever it
may be, without looking forward to the
consequences. This is well exemplified
on the present occasion. Filled with
resentment far the affront conceived to
be put upon their lepreseniativfes. by
the hasty dissolution of the late General
Assembly, men seem to think of nothing
at present, but how they m«jr increase
the odium against his Majesty’s Repre Representative.
sentative. Representative. With this view, instead of
endeavouring to lessen the evils, which
roust inevitably follow from that step
by such means as may yet be in their’
power, they seem to wish to heighten
them in imagination beyond the reality
and to render them in practice still more
intolerable, than they need otherwise be
1 his may be clearly seen from the follow,
ing instances. The Madras system of
education has lately been introduced
into this place, by an able and e X) »e.
nencetj. Teacher sent out on purpose
from England. The system itself has
beeo fully tried at home, and the bene benefits
fits benefits arising from it have been found to
exceed all calculation; even the short

experience that we have had of it &. ]
