Or eaufes that hare been »ppofed to the PROGRESS of COMMERCE botween fX.itiCE and the UNITED STATU of AMERICA. With the means of accelerating.it; And a comparison of the National Debts of England, France, and America. In Six letters, directed to the Marquis de la Fayette. Translated (into French from the original Eng lift Maaufcriot of Col. Swan, formerly a Mem ber of the Legislature of Massachusetts. Commerce is the molt important portion of the Wealth of Nations. l'he Trident of Neptune is the Sceptre of the world. Lxmiire. A"T a junfture when the question of , a Commercial Treaty ntitb •>France may soon become an objc£ of difcufiion, a work ©f this kind becomes extremely ufefut to those eitizens ©f the United States, who may be defirons to enable them selves to view this fubje<st, under its various af peds ; and they will have the fatisfa&ion to be furnifhed with the necessary data, to judge of the nfefulnef3 of this tranfa&ion. This work is principally distinguished by the richness of the obfer vat ions, the pcrfpicuity of thd iwcas, and the modesty of the theory which it contains. At Pars, a man of wit ©bferved, that this work was like a rich farmer's barn, heaped up Co the very roof with ufelul produce. It is addrtf (ed te the #nfortuiate La Favitte, in letters, Which fugitive fo r ai, the author who could only devote a few weeks to t&is occupation, was obliged to adopt. Although ftrcumitanc*iß are iti many rtfpe&s different at the present day, from what »hey were in the year 1790, when these letters were written, yet it may be justly said, that so ma ny absolute and permanent data still remain, that ihe judioious reader will not appreciate the work lesion that account; on the contrary, as many of the alterations, which have been made, arc the re fiulc of the author's remarks, it will serve to con vince him that in all tranfa&ions, between free nations, every thing maybe expelled from the ef» forts of truth andjudice. LETTER I. General vi©w of the obftaclos,'created in France, to prevent the ertenfion ©i commerce, with the Ui:ited s—Obfervations made in a totir, taken for that purpofe, uponfome French manu £ailurcs (a precious fragment this). Examination and» lefutation of the prejudices cxifting in France, asaiuft the qualify of certain produ&ions of the United States, and again ft the advantages of their importation—Demondration of the bad policy of laying duties ©n their importation, principally on pfovifions in gener*4, and on fait provisions, and filh in pa- ticular—Confideratitms on the regulation i of the French cu£omrhouf<£*. LETTER 11. Obtlaefes to the extension of trade with France, JHocecdiiig from circumftanses individuals m the United States—Proofs that thfcfe obftaclcs are •nly temporary and will be removed (they hayc been removed) by time and tta wifdomof govern ment—Hiiloryaf the influence of the American paper money—lmportant j rinciplo6 and abftraA confiderarions on nioney and circulation—Caufcs of the 11 agnation of American trade, after the peace—Critical examination of French a oods, im ported into America, and extraordinary conduit of the French merchants—Effeds of good com mercial laws; and patriotic withes on this fubje£— Observations on money, weights and meaiures. LETTER 111. EUayin the forra of a tablcAU, to sppraife the im poi tations into tne United States from France arid Eng~ Und un fed. The author examines at each article 9 whether it can be better furniftied from France or England—lt is principally on this fubjeft (which would have aftooifhed a mere thtorift) that the author appears to evince great commercial experience. These kin l of tableaux, uuluckily as difficult to obtain as they are much to be desired, are the only sure guides the statesman can take for th policy of treaties de prived of which he is continually deceiving or decei ved.. We cannot too much admire the apparent ex aftnefs of colonel Swan's calculations; and all hough the propWrfies of Lord Sheffield have already been contradided by experience, and by several able pens, yet it is cui ious to fee the author of the prelent work, dispute with him the only groui d on which he has not been hitherto attacked, by proving that France, tinder the requited condition, will be better able than Great Britain to supply us with several articles, which the Englilh author allots exclusively and forev er to the latter; the author's patriality ajefl on (if he has any) does n»t appear to have at any time created z partiality cj judgment. "The result of this calculation is that »n *7©9» that is to (ay, at a period when arts and manufactures did eot present in France the vafl means and piobabiti:y of extension which they now poffcfa. that even in 1789, it was pcefumablr, that Fiance w©uld not only have the means to supply one half of anv given Quantity of the produftions of Franci and ■ rtgland united, but also to enter into competition with Great Britain for the remainder, in proportion to the wisdom of her government, and Itie industry Oi her inhabitants. LETTER IV. Calculation of the of the United States, and particular examination of their suitableness to France; this is one reason why, notwithstanding the excell i»t work of Mr. Tench Coxe, Mr. Swan's ta bleau is by ©0 means fupeifluous i the principle of the advantages which would result to France Irom the importation of provifiom and raw materials, i* every where applied ; and it is upon this argument, that the «uthor eftablilhes his demands to the French go vern|nent» * or l^c limited sdmtflion of the produc tionsof his country into France. LETTER V. Tableau, of the debt of the United States at that time—Opinions of the author on the finances, on the effects of national debt, on circulation, Sec. as more amply detailed in his Natiooal Arithmetic printed at fiofton in the year 1786 ; the whole calculated to strengthen in France, thepublc and private credit •f the United States —the happy condition of Ameri ca, and the miseries arising from the public debt in Europe, arc cootrafted in the ablcft manner, and un der the mod ttriking lelations, by very cu ious cal culations —Obfetoations on the wisdom and economy which preside over the public expenfea in Maflachu fetts. In this place the patriotism of the author ap pears, with all the elevation which a just national pride inlpires. The ancient governments of Europe, lavs he, vyill learn from us the art #f economy in recompensing he frrvices which the country receives.* Among fl us it will be seen, that men are chojen for places, and n»t places for men. Th»s letter corciudes with a general view of the public property, depohted in the hands ©f the government of the United States. LETTER VI General examination of the defeA* of the commer cial policy of France with refpeft to the Umtfd States ; many of these observations have produced the effc&s for which thev »were intended, others still remain, pointing out tne reforms to be tnade in future, as a £T*d chart marks the /hoali and r©ckj.

To praise a man when he eiercrfcs a dilhnguilhed em ployment, is common, and may be taken for flattery ; but whilst he ia in private life, it is the homage of (incerity.
