THE FRENCH LETTER.
The following; U the dltpatch from the French
Mlnlitcr of Foreign Affairs, addressed to the
Ambassador of France at London and Si. Pe
From the Moalteur.
rims, October 30, 1803.
Europe watches with painful Interest the
struggle which has been raging more than a
year, upon tho American continent. The hot
tllllles hare provoked sacrifices and efforts ccr.
talnlj of a nature to Inspire the highest Idea of
the perseverance and' energy, of two popula
tions. But this spectacle, which docs so much
honor to their courage. Is only given at tho prlco
of numberless calamities and a prodigious effu
sion of blood.
To these results of civil war which from the
very first assumed vast proportions, thero Is
still to be added apprehensions of a servile war,
which would bo the culminating point of 'so
many Irreparable disasters. The sufferings of a
nation towards which we have always professed
sincere friendship would have sofBccd to excite
the sincere sollcltsde of the Emperor, even had
we ourselves not suffered by the counter-blow of
theso events. Under the Influence of the Inti
mate relations which extensive Intercourse lias
multlnlled between the various reclons of the
globe, Europe, Itself, has suffered from the con
sequences of tho crisis which has dried up ono
or tne most rruitiui sources or puuuc weaiiu
and which has become, for tho great centres ol
labor, tho cause of most sad trials.
Aa you areaware, when the conflict commenc
ed we held It our duty to observe tho most strict
neutrality In concert with the other maritime
Powers, and the Washington Cabinet repeatedly
acknowledged the honorable manner In ,whlch
we adhered to that line of conduct. The sentU
ment dictated to us have undergone no chango
but of a benevolent character. That neutrality,
Instead of Imposing upon tho Powers the atti
tude which mleht resemble indifference, ought
rather to make them of service to the two par-
t es. by belDlnir them out of a-position which
seems to have no lssne. From the commence
ment of the war an armed force waa set on foot
by the belligerents, which slnco then has al
most constantly been kept up. After so much
bloodshed, they are now In that respect nearlyln
the samo position, nothing authorizing the pre
sumption that more decisive military operations
will shortly occur, according to the last news
received In Europe. The two armies, on the
contrary, were In a condition that would not
allow either party to hope within a brief delay
for any decided advantage to turn the balance
and accelerate the conclusion of a peace.
All these circumstances taken together point
to the opportunity of an armistice to which,
moreover, under tho present circumstances, no
strategical objection can be made. The favor
able dispositions towards peace which are be
ginning to manifest themselves In tho North aa
well aa In the South might, on the other hand,
second steps that might be made to recommend
the Idea of a trace. The Emperor has, there
fore, thought that tho occasion haa presented It
self of offering to the belligerents the support
of tho srood offices of the maritime Powers, and
his Majesty has charged me to make the propo
sition of this Government to her Britannic Ma
jesty, as well aa the Court of Russia, that the
turee cauineis wouia exert tneir inuuenco at
Washington, aa well aa with the Conlcdcratcs,
to obtain an armistice for six months, during
which every act of war, direct or Indirect,
should provisionally cease, on sea as well as on
land, and It might .be, If necessary, ulteriorly
prolonged. The overtures, I need not say, sir,
wonld not Imply on our part any Judgment on
the origin of the Itine of tho slruffule. nor any
piTftSTire upon thelnocotlattons which mleht. It
It hoped, ensue In favor ofan armistice. Our task
would consist solely In smoothlup; down obsta
cle, and In Interfering: only In a measnro de
termined upon by the two parties.
Wa should not, In fact, believe ourselves
called upon to decide, hut to prepare, a solu
tion of tho difficulties which hitherto have op
posed a reconciliation between the belligerent
Would not, moreover, an agreement between
tno tnreo courts respond suiucienuy to tneir
Intentions 1 Would It not give to their step a
character of evident Impartiality? Acting In
concert, they wonld combine the conditions
best salted to Inspire confidence, tho Gov
ernment of tho Emperor, by tho constant
tradition of French policy towards tho Uni
ted BUtes i England, by the community of
race f Russia, by tho marks of friendship sho
never ceased to show to tho Washington
Cabinet. Should the event not Justify tho hope
of tho three Powers, and should the ardor of
the struggle overrule the wisdom of their coun
cils, this attempt would not bo the less honor
able for them. They would havo fulfilled the duty
of humanity, more especially Indicated In the
war tn which the excited passions which ren
der all direct attempts at negotiation moro
difficult. It Is a mission which international
law assigns to neutrals, at tho samo time that
It prescribes to them strict impartiality i and
they could never make a nobler use of their In
fluence than by endeavoring to put an end to
the struggle which causes so much suffering
and compromises such great Interests through
out the whole world.
Finally, een without any Immediate results,
these overtures would not be entirely useless,
for they might encourage public opinion to
views of conciliation, and thus contributo to
hasten tho moment when a return of peaco
might become possible.
I request you, sir, in tho name of his Majesty
to submit these considerations to Lord Russell
or Prince GortschaJcotT, begging him to state
the views of the Government of her Britannic
Majesty or the Court of Russia.
