FOR-THE GAZETTE.
WHIG and TORY. '
These revolutionary epithets distinguish
ed friends of the revolution and enemies of
the revolution'; or, in others words, th*
•Whigs were friends and supporters of our
government, both in men and measures,
yvhile the tories condemned our own gov
ernment, and justified Gréât' Britain both
in men and measures. The whig* rejoic
ed at the American success—the tories at
British success. The whig* ruled the na
t'tofi, anti the tories hated them fur it. Bri
tain called the lories her friends, and the
the whigs her enemies. ,
AVherein does there exist a difference be
tween the parties' of the revolution and
those of the- pres'ent day ? If none, it is
fair to resume the former' epithets—they
better, understood, ahd admit «f no
changes : wherbas a faction, as really tories
as the enemies of the revolution, by annu
ally changing their title from Federalist to
Federal Republican,., then American Re
publican, then British Repub! '.an, Sic, de
ceive many honest men.
The tories now"pretend, first—that op
position to govetnmont does not constitute
a tory in the revolutionary sense : -second
ly, if it do.es, that the now whigs were tories
during the Adams administration. But
here again they intend to deceive—Oppo
sition in favor of cur czvh country does not
make a tory ; but opposition to our own go
vernment in favor of a- foreign government,
dors. The whig opposition began with the
'British treaty, because by that treaty our
'Fights and interest where, sacrificed to a fa
Ireign nation—Eogland. This same sys
tem of. sacrificing rights, of conniving Bt
impressment, at search, at Rapture, at even
giving up a man, (who said he was a citi
Zen) without- niai, to execution, [Robin*
and every other outrage, was. persevered iu
nt the expense of every American and Re
publican feeling I«) the end of the chapter.
' Hence, therefore, thé whig opposition iras
consistent With whig'principles.
' To bolster their claims, the tories ex
claim that their opposition arises from a
partiality manifested bv the government a
, )gainst England. But let them show such •
G partiality as that article of the Briiisli trea
t... ty which authorised British cruisers to cap
ture American vessels bound to France
with our own .grain, and take them into
port, paying freight, commissions and cer
tain pér çentage, in order to starve France,
, then truly republican 1 England is monar
chical and inimical, yet should the Ameri
can government, in order to starve her, a
gree by treaty with France, as Jay did with
England,, the cry. of partiality would be
well founded. Such then is tory consisten
cy. : , .
But it will be said the whigs gave opposition
in favor of France during the Adams ad
ministration.' This is not admitted, except
where the measure was for.aiding Britain
to destroy republican France,, as in the Jay
treaty. It will, also, be said, the whigs now
rejoice at French success, when destroying
independent nations. But it still proceeds
\ from love to our own country and govern
ment ; for as it is England which has stir
fed up every one of these nations to fight
her battles against France, and for every
.success of England she inflicts a.rtew stripe
of punishment on us, ' we' rejoice only in
Svhat saves us fro pa injury. Yes, says a to
ty, it is the fleet of Britain which must save
you from the tyranny of France. Her s'av
tngi'L indeed the saving of the wolf to the
sheep—she keeps'off France that she may
plunder us herself. Why not treat us with
decency if she means us a good Î \V
kucitv, however, that France fights for the
Ijberty of the seas at present, and England to
tyran ize over them. Let-England agree to
the liberty of the sens, and if France don't
we'will join her against France,,, We know
also this pretended, fear of France is hypo
?enne#! and deception». \Ve ,k ; ptv ;the«e

aanae .ones favored Eng.aud equally when
there was no danger from France j when
France tvtrs republican and strut-sling a
gainst all KtiropeV
, To recriminate, however, is not the pur
.pose,. Nothing in time* past, subsequent
.to the revolution, ought to be compared to
Brith Orders in. Council requiring us to
Come and pay tribute on our own produce

repel this.they opposed. When pressed by
our repelling measures and forced to solicit
an adjustment which relieved their wants, .
and this adjustment is violated, the tones
justify it. Yea, to so great a height do they

us by anticipation to expect England to lake
still higher grounds , and justify it by -he

rytsm fiils up the character of revolutionary
toryism in every feature, and indeed ex.
ceeds it in many. Let the friends of gov
erqment. therefore, no longer modestly call
them what they are not. Federalists— this
title they have projected in their endeavors
to seperatc the union—Republicans they
are not—they love monarchies and hate re
publics. In short, their words and actions
-—their associates and members, and the a
vowed friendship declared in parliament
between them and the British government,
mark and proclaim them TORIES.
