JURISCOLA.
No. VII.
Among the earliest violations of A
rneriean neutrality by the British navy,
was their practice of forcing our citi
zens into their oelligerent marine ser
vice. It merits a place therelore, and
not a small one, among the numerous
supports ot the high charge we have
m <ie. It will be* remembered, that
Mr. Jay labored, and that he la
bored In vain, so early us the year 1794,
to place this matter upon satisfactory
ground. Great Britain, c »mbined with
other pn ■• i i d in her
manifesto of October 1793, to restore
monarchy in France, compelled every j

Would grossly violate and endanger our
neutrality. They would render us at
once odious and contemptible. An tin- j
founded claim of the British parliament
oojjt us our peace in 1775. We say un.
founded, because it was against the
constitutional lav/of that day, and has
been deliberately and explicitly a
handonetl in the cased' Ireland, by the
r*.peiU of the British'statute respecting
that kingdom called " the declaratory

Kftlishparliament to bind Ireland, hi
nil casei '•. The same Hie* :
gtVin clple, & a similardecl.i
ratory act produced the war of the
American revolution and all its im
iv\hv. ■ . It is well known,
that in the course of that war monstrous
expenditures were made by this coun
try i ndthi t besides all she could pay
ider ft debt of .seven- i
tv millions <-i dollars. We repeat it— |
Aii urifuunded claim of G. Britain cost
America the war of 1775 and tha im
ia- ft c tosses and expense^ B ''f ( --' X ' revo
lution. This is not mentioned to pro
duce irritation, but to nourish, to ex
cite considerations of justice, and an
honorable prudence in H. Britnin, She
again prefers an unfounded claim upon
huh country. p i not declare by
hv, but. she Intelligibly declares by
practice, that she has a right to enter
the ships of America fit the purp
impressing seamen. We say after onr
government, with a confidence, calm
and .sincere-, that no nation has such a'
righ' against our ships. We ask with
in. h-at, the lv'nisb public officers, and
sul jets here, ni their government and
counsellors in Europe) to point out a
tingle clause or section of the law of
nations whfdh countenance*-, or even
contemplates such n right. We Affirm
that no treaty ; no British Writer On the
lav/ of nations, evt r sanctioned this
unfounded claim We assert that "the
right of search," under the law of na
tions, is extended by no treaty, nO au
thor beyond goods contraband of war,
goods of belligerents and military" ene
mies. We calmly challenge the ablest
:>rjd the most learned Englishman, h' re
vY in Europe, to shew that any tivatv
or any writer on the law of nations, of
any country, has ever mentioned a
right of a belligerent to enter a neutral
Ship to search,
1 Ft enemies, not military :
2. For the subjects of the searching
power :
.1. For passengers of any nation ; or
4. For seamen of any nation in the
service ot the neutral power, or ot its
merchants.
The law of nations authorises not the
entty of neutral ships tor such purposes.
The law of nations must govern. It is
inadmissible for one power to say they
will not ever give up practices, for
which they can shew no law. It isjust
ly off i sive. It is deeply immoral. It
is even a canse of war. It is destruc
tive of the neutrality of nations. It is
public despotism. It is to trample on
th. law of nations and tread the rights
of uei'trals under foot. It Is injury to
adversary belligt rents. 1< is a breach
of neutrality in nations at peace to suf
fi rit from me party. It produces dis
rupts, resentments, violence an I w<r ;
It is in vain to plead) that Americans
and Englishmen appear alike and speak
the same language, becausfc toe indis.
put.'ld ■ principle of law is, that no bet
ligcrent has a right to cut. r a neutral
fdiip o search for persons, who are not
■ v military tin mies. Let not vio-
Unt aasertioba and dncriniuaticns be
Presorted to. not th? alleged rie- '
c« ssiti- s of belligerents be pleaded to
i the exclusion of the greater necessities
of neutrals. It is far more necessary
for the U. S. not to give just cause ot
war to the continent of Europe, th;■ a it
is for Great Britain t> press unlawfully
passengers an 1 seamen to man ten or
j fifteen sail ot sloops of war and fri
gates.

It will not be fair to say that these
papers are partial to France, or against
England, we contend only for the laws
of neutrality and of sacred peace. We
nmurn over the wounds of mangled hu
manity. Our faithful government ex- '
crts its parental care to save us from
those, evils. It Is for this, among many
other causes, dear to our hearts. We
approve its conduct with all our minds j
■—with all our souls. Let not our fcf* j
low men of England any longer perse- I
vere in error. They have not a shadow
of public law for impressment in our
ships, It is not the interest of England j
to render it necessary for America to j
become a belligerent for unlawful rea- ;
jsons. Our government has shewn tern-;
j perate and just dispositions towards
j Great Britain. Its members are bound
'by the inviolable restraints of written
constitutions, to do right and to avoid
j doing.Wrong—We have no power or
! influence here to assure the passage of
' Sets of indemnity, as in tber countries:
j The laws reign here over the beads of
jour public agents. Flat Lex — mat |
; caelum is the constitutional motto of the
| chii i Aa.icaacaii functionary. He may
yield himself to no considerations un
known to the laws. He cannot, nor is
he, we Confidently and affectionately
trust, in any wise disposed to surrender
the liberties, the comforts, the neutrali
ty ot our futhful and Intrepid Ntariners
to the illegitimate claims of foreign na
tions— Ha well knows, that all our cp
lbn9, in this t;;r,n, since, the year
17*2, have proceeded from Great Bri-[
tain. No other nation has don* to us
this pernicious and humiliating wrong';
this illegitimate, tins vast injury.
Great Britain do?s this insulting wrong
to it) other nation. She never enters
Danish or Swedish, or German, or Rus
sian ship* to impress her subjects in
them; though she well knows many oi
thus;: subjects are on board of those, ves
sels, and they are easily distinguishable
there. The pretence of difficulty to
distinguish Americans from Britons
sinks to nought before this single tact,
for England does not abuse the right of
search by attempting to Impress in i
I neutral vessels. These insults mid inju
| ries are all for us alone. This rem rk
18 not intended to aggravate—lf there
be in it ought of aggravation, it consists
in its truth.

The objt-cl of thefc papers is to bring
affair* between Great Britain and A
merica to the oniy jufi, firm and
l';!ti:.iaftory ground on which they ran
b< refled— thtgrpurid o/ indisputable
'public Law, it is the law of nations on
ly, which prevents a foreign fliip ol war
from iniprcliing IVilors and paifenijcrs
out oi Unarmed vrii'cl? in the bay and
nvrrs of neutral counti'is. Ii is the
■ Law ot iNations, which protects
the neutral veiled from being- hoarded
for impressment on the high leas. An
nul or violate that law on the ocean,
' and v»n may witnefs its violation in
our narrow feas, our bays, our rivei*,
and our ports. Certain and known law
is necefiary to the peace ami harmony
of nations.
Great Britain prides herfclt in liar
courts of Common Law. If thole
courts or her admiralty courts would
not give remedy to the owners ami
inafiers of a violated natural lliip, loft
by imptrfVnent of its teamen, that
caufeof honeft pride lnuft lamentably
• fail There is rib ndbuction of the
crown ; no or.kr of tht king and
council, those arbitrary fubftitutes for
llgitimate llatutes, to warrant iy the de
tention" of pafieng'ers and feamen and
carrying them in tor legal adjudica
tion or imprelTmeht. American citizens,
fathers of families, are torn from their
peaceful and lawful occupations in con
tempt of the law nations—becaufe they
may be. Englilh-nen I is re
versed,— An Engliih failor might well
remain free from irnpreflment becauie
an Englifh navy officer could not dif
timjuiffi him from an American. But
it is prepofterous to fay you may law
fully take an American, becaufe you
cannot difiingtiifh him from an Eng
lifliman. 'Tis to fiibjeft out indepen
dent nation to a British general war
rant. Can the American officers en
ter Englifh lliips and irnprefs their fea
men because they hok like American ?
It is believed, that the Engliih lea cap
tains, mates and i'ailors would, in fuch a
cafe, do thofe thing which were propof
ed in the recent bill of a lat? Senator of
Maryland. The government, people,
merchantsand seamen of England would
be transported with resentment were
the navy officers o! the United States to
impress the crews of English merchant
men on the coast of England.
This business has reached a stagey as
it regards the rights of the belligerents
and the rights and duties of nuutral A
merlcßj which requires the calm ad
vancement and firm maintenance of the
whole truth, It is of no <..oiis-.'quer,-:e to
this argument, that our liWs'do not

'wldgs of England hay* be<m, at least,
the involuntary fra'mers of a treaty,
which leaves the seamen of this single
neutral state exposed to the despotic o
peration of British Impressment. If
there be nay thing righteous in law or

Ing ; any sincerity, m the allusion to a ;
, community of language, blood, morals
' and religion, we wi'.Tyf t hope that an ;

charge we have ventured to make.
JUKISCOLA.
The reader will perceive under the
j New York head an article which an- :
■ nounr.es r. new pamphlet on the subject j
jof the lately rejected treaty. The fol- -,
lowing are said to be the points
; which it embraces. It m*y fairly be
I presumed that, if it« provisions Fire pro- \
perly represented, the author of the
publication must have procured the co
py of the instrument from the British j
government or some of its agents; and
that the intention is, in truth, to appeal
from the vnvcruracnt of this coi.ntry j
to the profile. From such an appeal,
however, although it demonstrates the./
! daring insolence of the British miwistrt ,
the executive of the United States can \
have nothing to fear for (he ehavaoter- j
of bis understanding, or the duration of
his fame.

The court have been principally oc
cupied by the examination of evidence.
On Wednesday Mr. flay read the de
position ot David Fisk.
Mr. Alexander Henderson was then
called on the part ot the U. S. to ex
plain the views of the p.r'y, when the
counsel tor the accused made an ela:m
rate effort to exclude such testimony—
on the ground 'hit an overt act ought
first to he proved, and that such testi
mony could only he considered as colla
teral.' The Chief Justice overruled the
objection on the grounds represented 111
our last paper. Some conversation then
ensued upon the question, how far the
evidence about to be adduced (princi
pally consisting of acts and Conversa
tions of Blannerhassett) would affect
Mr. Burr. The Chief Justice seemed
disposed to think that it did not affect
him. Mr. Hay contended that when
a connexion and conspiracy were prov
en, the act and declarations of one ac
complice are good against the rest—
Tne Chief Justice was willing to hear
an argument upon the point. Mr. Burr
then said that as he understood he
was not affected, he would not inter
fere i
