But since I am called upon by the desire of several re fpedable fellow-fubjrds, as I have done at other times. I give up my fears to their wiihes. Whatever my other deficiences may be I do not know what it is to be wanting to myfrienu*. “ I am not fond of attempting to raile public expectation by great promdes. Ac this tinv there is much cause to consider,, and very link to presume. We fem to be approaching to a great crisis in our affairs, which culls lor tie whole wiidom of the wiled among us, witcpig being able to allure ouricbes, that any wisdom can preserve us from many and great inconvenir races. You know I (peak of our unhappy cqn teli with America. 1 cenfefs it is a matter pn which I look down as from a pre ipice. It,is difficult in iifelf, And it is rendered more by a grat variety of plass of conduct. Ido not mean to enter into them. I will not fufpetl want of good intention in framing, thxm. Bu, however pure the intentions of their authors may have been, we all know that the erent has been unfortunate. *• The means of recovering our affairs are not obivious. So many great qucltions cf commerce, |of finances,of constitution, and of policy, arc in volved in this. American deliberation, mat I dare engage for nothing, bu: that I shall give it, with out any predilection to former opinions, or any sinister bias whatsoever, the honest and impartial confideratien of which lam capable. Tae pub lic has a lull right to it ; and this great city, a main pillar in the commercial intcreft of Great- Britam, mutt touer on its bass by the flighted mistake, with regard to our American measures. Thus much, however, J think it notamifsto [ay before you, that lam not, I hope, apt to take up or lay’ down ’my opinions I have held, and ever Ihall mamuna, to the best of my ’ ipdwery uiiimpaired and undiminifred, the just, wife and necclfaiy C9*jii rational Sus trior>rj of Ctfai-Briiaia. T his i* tiKtjJary fab America, a* well as for us, I never mean to depart from it: Whatever mzy be Lft by it, I avow it. The forfeiture even of vour favour, if by f uch a declaration I cotld forfeit i’» though the firft objdt of ambition, never will make me difguifo my fentitnents on thi* hibjetu | ‘ •• But, I have ever had a dear opinion, and ; have ever held a constant corrcfjxmdcnt conduit, that this superiority is confident with all the li berties a fubcr and fpiiited American ought to 1 desire. I never mean to put any color.itt, or any human cfeature, in a situation, not becoming a ■ free man. To reconcile British superiority with American liberty (hall be my great obje&, as far ■ a* my little faculties extend. I am far from think ,ing that both, even yet, may not be preferred. | “ when 1 firft devoted myiclf to the public ‘ service, I considered how I ihould render myfelf I fit for it ; and this I did by en favouring to dif ‘ cover what irwas, that gave this country the rank it holds in the world ; 1 found that our profperi ityand dignijy arose principally, ii not fokly, ifrom two fource* ; our constitution and cons ! merce. Both these I have spared m> study to un fderftand, and no endeavour to fupporu r “ The distinguishing part of our constitution ■is it* liberty. To preserve that liberty inviolate ifeems the particular duty and proper trust of a ’ member ot foe house of commons. But ihe liber ty, the only liberty I mean, is a libery conned .ed with order ; that not only exiils along with । order and virtue, but which cannot exist at all without them. It inheres in good and steady go vernment, as in its substance and vital principle. “ The other four eof our power is commerce, of which you are so large a part, and whicn can not exist, no more th >n your liberty, without a connection with many virues. It ha* ever been a very peculiar and a very favourite objcfl of my i study in its principlesand its details. I think ma ny here are aquainted with the truth of what I fay. 'This I know, that I have ever had my house open, .and my poor services ready for trader* and ’ manufacturers of every denomination. My • favourite ambition is to have thufe fervice* ac ■ knowledged. I now appear before you to make ! trial, whether my earnett endeavour* have been lb wholly oppressed by the weakuef* of my abili j tic*, as to be rendered infignifitant in the eye* of ■ a great trading city ; or whether you choofa to ; give a weight to humble abilities, for the lake of I foe honest exertions with which they are ac ‘ companied. This is my trial to day. My in . dull yis not on trial; of my industry lam fare, ।a* far as my constitution of mind and bod) I admitted. ” When I was invited by many refpeAablc merrhants, freeholders, and freemen of this city, to.offer them my services, I had just received the honour of an election at another place, at a very great diltance from this. I immediately opence tue mi ter rn ek«»fe «>f my wnrrty constitu ents, who were with me, 2nd they unanimoullv adviled me not to decline it; that they had elect ed me with a view to the public service ; anc that as great q all ions relative to our commerce and colonies were imminent, that in such ntat ’ers 1 might derive authority and support from therepreleuiadunof ibis great commercial city j they defiied me therefore to let oft wit .out delay . very we.l pufuaded that 1 nc\cr could forget m; obligations 10 them, or to my friends tor the chuicethey hadmade of me. From that time to .his instant 1 have not ffrpt, and if I should have the honour of being freely chosen by you, 1 hop 1 ihall be as far from flumbciing or when your service requires me to be awake, as I have been in coming to offer m/fclf a candidate for y ur favour.” A correspondent fays he has been inferm<-i by a gentleman lately arrived from Philadelphia, that when Mr. John Malcomb, an officer of tut customs at Bo£ >ll,was leading, urred and feather ed, to the gxisows, with a rope about his neck, he was asked by one of the mob whether he was nut thirsty, which was n tural to a man expecting 10 be hanged. The unfortunate officer of the customs, as welt as he could speak, anfwere i yes; and immediately a large bowl of strong tea was pat in his hands, with orders to drink the King’s health. Whether it was owing to loyalty or thirst is not material; poor Makomb half emptied the bowl. lie was then told he must mend his draught, and drink the Queen’s health. Though he had done his utmost tor the King, be found >he must do femething for the Queen ; and hav ing taken off half the remainder of the bowl, he preiented it back to the perfous from whom "he had received it. Hold ! hold ! cries his friend, you are not to forget the rest of the royal family ; .come, drink to the Prince of Wales. Replendh, replcnilh, cries the loyal American ; and instant ly poor Makomb few two quarts more of what ■he was heartily sick of. Make haste, cries ano ther loyal American ; you have nine more healths to drink before you arrive at the gallows. For God s fake, gentlemen, be merciful, I am ready to burst ; if I drink a drop more, 1 shall die — Suppose you do, cries one fthe mob you die in a good cauie, and it is as well to be drowned as hanged, and immediately the drenching horn was put to nis mouth, to the health of the Bishop of Ofnabrug ; and having gone through the other dght, he turned pale, Ihuuk his head, and instant ly filled the bowl which he had just emptied.— What, fays the American, are you sick of the roy al family ; No, replies Makomb, my ftomaih naulcares the tea ;it riles at it like poison. And 1 yet, you rakxl, returns tn© American,your whole [ fraternity at the Cuftom-boufc would drench u* । with this pmfen, and we are tp have our throats , cut if it will not flay upon our stomachs. The merciful Americans defined, and the proccfecn was-continued towards the gallows. W IL LI A M S B U 11. By the Northern EvU, jurt «rn»cJ, v*e Hjii.
