From the New-Tori Commercial Adveriifer \ THE STAN D—No. I. '■ ■ % * \}i r,i-1 . r. THE enlightened friend of America ne ver saw gr^afiM-occafion of disquietude than at the present junfture. Our nation, thro' ' its official organs, has been treated with stu died contempt and systematic insult ; effen tfat rights of the country are perfeveringly violated, and its independence and liberty e-. ventually threatened, by tfae mod fla gitious, despotic and vindictive govern ment that ever disgraced the annals of mankind ; by a government marching with j hasty and coloflal strides to universal empire 1 —and, in th« execution of this hideous pro ject, wielding with abfoiute- authority the whole physical force of the mod enthralled but mod powerful i>ation on earth. In a situation like this, how great is the cause to lament, how afflidlißg to every heart, alive to the honour and interell of its eountry, to observe, that dillraSed and inefficient coun cils, that a palsied and utlconfcious state of the public mind, afford too little aflurance of measures adequate jitherto the urgency of the evils which are felt, »sr to the magni tude of th*: dangers which are in profpefk. When Great-Britain attempted to wrest from us thofc rights, without which we mud have defepnded from the rank of free men, a keen and drong sense of injury and danger ran with eleftrici fwiftnef* thro' the : breads of our citizens. _ The mass and | weight of talents, property and charafter, hadtned to confederate in the public cause. The great body of our community- every ! where burnt with a holy zeal t6 defend it, : and were eager to make facrificps on the altar of their eountry. If the nation with which we were called to contend was then the preponderating power of Europe ; if by her great wealth and the fnccefn of her arms she was in a con dition to hiafst or toawe the cabinets of prin ces ; if her fleets covered and domineered over the ocean, facilitating depredation and invasion ; if the penalties of rebellion hung over an unfuccefsful conted ; if America was yet in the cradle of her political exid ence ; if her population little exceeded two millions ; if (he was without government, without fleets or armies, arsenals or maga zines, without military kn6wledge ; —ltili her citizens had a jult and elevated sense of her rights, were thoroughly awake to the violence and injuflice of the attack npon them, saw the, conduct of her adver£jry without apology or extenuation ; and, un der the impulse of these iropreflioiis and views, determined with little short of una nimity to hrave every hazard in her defence. I his magnanimous spirit was the sure pledge that all the energies of the country \vould be exerted to bring all its resources into ac tion, that whatever was poflible would be done towards effectual opposition ; and this, combined with the immense advantage of didance, warranted th« expectation of ul timate success- The event judified the ex pedition and rewarded the glorious spirit from which it was derived. Far different is the pifture of our present situation ! The FIVE TYRANTS of France, after binding in chains their own countrymen, after prollrating liirrounding nations, and vatiquifhing all external refid ance to their revolutionary despotism at 1 home, without the shadow of neceflity, with no difcernable motive, other than to confirm their usurpation and extend the sphere of their domination abroad—These implacable tyrants obstinately and remorselessly per fid in prolonging the calamities of mankind and feeoi lefolved asfar as they can to mul : tiply and perpetuate them. Afting upon the pretention to universal empire, they have at length in fad, tho' not in aame, decreed war against all nations not in league with ; themselves ; and towards this country, in particular, they add to a long train of uri [ provoked aggrefiions and affronts the in- I supportable outrage of refufir.g to receive the extraordinary ambassadors whom we sent to endeavour to appease and conciliate.— Thus have they, in regard to us, filled up ihe.meafure of national insult and humilia tion. 'Tis not in their power, unkfs we are accomplices in the drfiga, to fink us lower. 'Tis'ouly in our awn power to do this by an abjeft fubmiflion to their will, j But though a knowledge of the true char adler of the citizens of this country will not permit it to be fufpefted that a majori ty cither in our public councils or in the community can be so degraded or infatua ted ; yet to the firm and independent lover of his country, there are appearances at once mortifying andalarming. Among those who divide our legislative councils, we perceive hitherto, on the one fide unremitting efforts to juftify or excuse the despots of France, to vilify arid discre dit our own government, of course to de flroy its neceflary vigor, and to dillraft the opinions and to damp the zeal of our citi zens, wbat is worse, to divert their affec tions frffrti their own to a foreign country : on the other fide, we have as yet seen nei ther expanded views of our situation, nor meaf'ires at all proportioned to the feri oufnels and extent of the danger. While our independence is menaced, little more is beard than of guarding our trade, and this too in very feeble and tremulous accents. In the community, though in a founder (late than its representatives, we discover the vestiges of the fame divilion3 which en ervate our councils. A few, happily a con temptible few, prostituted to a foreign en emy, seem willing that their country fhonkl become a province to France. SNme of these dare even to insinuate th£ treasonable and parricidal sentiment, that in cafe of in they would join the standard of France. Another and a more coi.fiderable part ate weak enough to appear disposed to facrifiee our commerce, to endure every in dignity and even to become tributary, ra-" titer than to encounter war or increase the chances of it ; as if a nation could preserve any rights, could even retain its freedom, which (hould conduct itfelf on the princi ple os-passive obedience to injury and out rage ; as if the drbafement of- the public mind did not include the debarment of the individual mind and the dereliction of whatever adorns or exalts human nature ; as if there could be any security in com pounding with tyratjny and injustice by de grading compliances ; as if fubmiflion to the existing violations of our sovereignty would not invite (till greater, and whet the appetite to devour us by the allurement of an unrefifling prey ; as if war was ever to he averted by betraying unequivocally a pu sillanimous dread of it as the greatest of all evils. , This cbuntry had doubtless powerful motives to cultivate peace. It was its poli cy, for the fake of this objeft, to go a great way in yielding secondary interests, ,and to meet injury with patience as long as it could be done without the manifeft aban donment of effeatial rights without abso lute dishonor. But to do more than this is filicide in any people who have the lead chance of contending with effeft. The condu£t of our government has eorrefpon ded with the cogent inducements'to a pa cific system. Towards Great-Britain it dis played forbearance—towards France it has (hewn humility. In the cafe of Great-Bri tain, its moderation was attended with fug. cef». But the inexorable arrogance and ra pacity of the oppressors of unhappy France barr all the avenues to reconciliation as well as to redress, accumulating upon us injury and insult till there is no choice left but be tween refillance and infamy. My countrymen ! can ye 'hesitate which to prefer ? can ye consent to taste the bru talizing cup of disgrace, to wear the livery of foreign mailers, to put on the hateful fetters of foreign bondage ? Will it make any difference to you that the badge of your servitude is a cap rather than an epaulet ? Will tyranny be leffrodious because five in stead of one inffidt the rod ?—What is there to deter you from the manful vindication of your rights an d your honor ? With an icnmenfe ocean rolling between the United States and France—with ample materials for ship-building, and a body of hardy seamen more numerous and more ex pert than France can boast, with a popula tion exceeding five millions, spread over a wide extent of country, offering no one point, the seizure of which, as of the great Capitals of Europe, might decide the iflue, with a foil liberal of all the produ&ions that give llrength and resource, with the rudi ments of the mod essential manufa&ures ca pable of being developed in proportion to our want, with a' numerous, and in many quarters wtll appointed militia, with respec table revenues and a fluurifhing credit, with many of the principle of taxation yet untouched,with considerable ar eualsand the means of extending t,hem» with experi enced officers ready to form an army under .the command of the fame iHuftriows chief who before led them to vi&ory and glory, and who, if the occaQon (hould require it, could not hesitate to obey the summons of his country —what a striking and encourag ing contrail doe* this situation in many re fpedts present, to that in which we defied the thunder of Britain ? what is there in it to excufc or palliate the cowardice and base ness of a tame surrender of our rights to France ? The question is unnece(fary. The peo ple of America are neither idiots nordaftards. They did not break one yoke to put on ano ther. Though a portion of them have been hitherto misled ; yet not even these, still less the great body of the nation, cas be long unaware c>t the true situation, or blind to the treacherous arts by which they are at tempted to be hood winked. The unfaith ful and guilty leaders of 3 foreign facliou, unmalked in all their rntrinfic deformity, mull quickly (hrinkfrom the scene, appall ed and qonfounded. The virtuous wham they have led aflray will renounce their ex otic -standard. Honest men of all parties will unite to maintain and defend the honor and the sovereignty of their country. The crisis demands it. 'Tis folly to.dif fetnble. The despots of Franco arc waging . war against us. . Intoxicated with success | and the inordinate of powerj they vir tually threaten our independence. All ami cable means ba»ein vain been tried towards accomodation. The problem now to be solved is whether We will maintain or surren der our sovereignty. To maintain it with firmnef* is the mod sacred of duties, the the moll glorious ps talks. The happiness of our country, the honor of the Ameri can name demands it. The genius of In dependence, exhorts to it. The secret mour'niug voice of oppressed millions in the very country whose despots menace us, ad monish to it by their fuffering example. The offended dignity of man commands us not to be acceflary to its further degradation.— Reverenee to the Supreme Governor of the umverle enjoins us not to bow the knee to the nsodern Titans* who crcft their im "pious crests againfl him and vainly imagine they can subvert his eternal throne. But 'tis not enough to resist. 'Tis requi fitc to resist with energy. That will be a narrow view of our foliation which dues not j contemplate, that we may be called, at our! very doors to defend our independence and. liberty, and which does not provide against it, by bringing into activity and complete'y organising all the resources of our country. A rcfpe&able force, ought to proud our commerce, and a refpe&able army ought both to diminilh the temptation to invalion, by lefTening the apparent chance of fuccels, and to guarantee us, not only against the fi n:il fucctfs of fueh an attempt, but ag.iinfl • the serious though partial calamities, which ' in that cafe \yould certainly await us, if we j have to rely on militia alone against the en-1 terprifes of veteran troops, drenched in ; blood and (laughter and led by a (kiltul and daring chief !

The bill authorising an expenditure, and making an appropriation for the reimburse ment of money advanced by the Consuls of the United States in foreign countries, was read the third time and palled. Mr. Livingfton reported a bill declaring the aflent of Congress to two afts of the state of North-Carolina therein mentioned, which was twice read and committed. Mr. D. Foster, from the committee of claims, made a report on the petition of Jo fiah Green, who prays for an increase of his peufion, and that it may be paid in future in the state «f Pennsylvania, instead of New- York. The report dates, that no legisla tive interference is neceflary in the latter cafe and that it is not expedient to grant the for mer- Concurred'lS. Mr. Sitgreaves presented the petition of John Vaughan, of this city, merchant, fta ting»-that he lodged a quantity of silver bul lion in the mint, between the firft of Janu ary and the 21ft of November, j 795, for which he received a warrant for 230,888 ounces of sterling fiJverr, which was issued upon the report ot the then Allayer of the mint, whose afiays were calculated at the rate of nine parts fine to one part of alloy, and not at the rate of 1485 fine to 1.79 al loy, as the Jaw requires, by which devia tion from the law, he has fufFered a loss of 2,260 dollars, and on which account he prays relief. Mr. Sitgreaves moved to refer this peti tion to a feledt committee ; but this course being objected to by Mr. Macon who said it properly came under the business of the committee of claims, it wa3 referred to that committee. Mr* Otis proposed a resolution to the house, calling upon the Secretary of the Treasury for a statement of the (hipping be longing to the different diftri&s of the U nited States ; when, Mr. Gallatin observing that it would be best to adopt a similar resolution to the one formerly agreed upon, including foreign, as well as domestic (hipping, the following was agreed to : Refolded, That the Secretary oj the Trea sury be dircded to lay before the house, aJlate ment, *txhihiling the tonnage of shipping belong ing to thefeveral d'lJlriSi of the United States, at the laji periodJtr which an account can be prepared, di/lingui/hing the regijlered from the enrolled and licenced tonnage ; also, a compar ative Jlatement of the tonnage of vessels employ ed in the trade between the United States Foreign Countries, from Jan. lfl, I 795, to the latejlperiod at which an account can be made up, dijlingu/hing the foreign from the domeflic tonnage." Mr. Kittera wished the house to take up the bill'which he reported 011 Monday, ref pefting authorizing certain officers to ad minister oaths. Mr. Allen hoped the galleries would be cleared, in order that they might again go into the consideration of the confidential communication from the Prelident of yester day. Mr. Gallatin supposed as that business would not occupy much time, it would be best deferred till the close of the fitting, and in the mean time go on with other business. Mr. Allen said, he wifiied to take up the confidential business, as he supposed the pa pers would be made public, and he was de sirous that it (hould be decided upon as-ear ly as possible. Mr. Gallatin said, it that was the gen tleman's intention, he had no obje&ion. The galleries were cleared accordingly ; and the whole of the fitting was occupied w'th this buGnefsi, We have not learnt that any rote was taken with refpeft to the printing the papers, or for taking off the secrecy from the farther consideration of them.

It is also reported that twelve fiiips will be put in commiflion, and a cordon of troops eftab. lifhed on the frontiers of Holilein.
