I SKETCH OF THE DEBATE In the House of Representatives, on the Bill for .laying an EMBARGO—Continued^ / Mr. Randolph said, he was so impres- ] sed with the importance of the subject k the solemnity of the occasion, that he could not. he silent. Sir, s<ii»l Mr. iw» we are now in conclave; the eyes of the sur rounding world are not upon us—We are shut up here from the light of Heaven ; but the eyes of God are upon us. He knows the spirit of our minds. Shall we deliberate upon this subject with the spi rit of sobriety and candor, or with that i spirit which lias too often characterised our discussions upon occasions like the present. We ought to realise that we are in the presence of that God who knows our thoughts and motives, and to whom we must hereafter render an account for the deeds done in the body. He hoped the spirit of party and every improper pas sion would be exorcised, that our hearts might be as pure and clean as fall to the lot of human nature. lie was confident in declaring that this was not a measure of the executive—th*»t it was engendered by an extensive excite ment upon the executive. He agreed with the gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Soybert) that it comes tons in a qtifsl li able shape, uv rather in an unquestionable shape—Whose ever measure b is, the people of the LT. States will consider it as a subterfuge for war; as a retreat i»\mi the battle. We some years ago reaof. eil that we must have zcar, emburgo or mission—Xie have not had war or submh ted—we must therefore have embajgo. It appears to he limited to sixty days ; at the expiration of that time, will any one say we shall be prepared for war? feir, we are in the situation of a debtor w ho promises to pay his note at the bank in sixty days—we shall prolong the time six ty days, and sixty days after that, until deferred hope makes the heart sick, lie would tell the honorable speaker, that at the end of sixty days we shall not have war, and the reason is, the executive dare not plunge the nation into a war in our unprepared state. li e had too much reliance on his wisdom and virtue to believe that he would be guilty of such gross and unparalleled trea son. Mark my word, you will renew your note, if endorsers can be bad, you cannot take it up. The honorable speak er is mistaken, when he says the message is for war—It is the effect ol an excite ment occasioned by ministerial, federal and neutral papers, anti is nut the A>ish or meaning of tike executive. Be would appeal to the sobriety and reflection of the house, and ask, what new cause of war for the last twelve months? What new cause of embargo within that period ?—The affair of the Chesapeake is . settled—No new principles of blockade interpolated into tiie laws of nations, lie should suppose every man of candor ami sober reflection would ask why we did not go to war twelve months ago? Or will it he said we ought to make up, by i ; our promptness now, for our slowness j then ? Or will it be said, that if the wheat ■ ! for which we have received two dollars her bushel, had been rotting in our barns we should have been richer or happier. What would the planter say, ll you was to ask him which he would prefer, the i honorable, chivalrous course advocated by the speaker—with the consequences ; which will attend it, the sheriff at his ' back and the excise collector pressing him ? He would laugh in your face. Jf an embargo twelve months ago, would have been folly, and ruinous, he would request any gentleman to say what ; makes it wise now ? It is not generally wise to dive into fu turity ; but it is wise to profit by experi ence, although it may be unpleasant.—He felt much concerned to have the bill on the table for one hour. No one can tell the great in jury to the mill owner or the ! merchant by the mere mention of an em- I bargo in this house. It being limitted to only sixty days, it can do no possible good ; to the public, or be the means of bringing i our property from abroad; but as ocea- i sioning great speculations, it will be rui- j nous to many, and give great fortunes to a few. Mr. R. declared, to bis certain know- J lege, that the French minister M. Sur rurier, ever since his arrival here, had been pressing our government to prohibit the exportation of our products to the Pe ninsula, which the government have here tofore eluded. And is this the way which the honorable speaker with so much gal lantry has advocated an honorable war—to rob our own people, to gratify the malig i nant ambition of the imperial tyrant in subduing tbc peer Spaniards, in starving the enemies of France. Will the people of tbe U. Spates thus manifest theirsensc of injuries, in becoming ihe passive instru ments and tools of France ? ilo said it was not the public sentiment. He said that as a caveat or a precautionary mea sure, there can be no necessity for the last ! section and the penalties contained there in, unless, instead of a precursor, it is in tended as a substitute for war. He said he had other considerations to submit, most of which are a detail of facts which occurred in a conferrenee between the committee of foreign relations and t he secretary of state, which, however, he would for the present defer. lie would observe, in the words of the gentleman from New-York, (Mr. Stow,) that war is not to be considered as a mat ter of pleasure. He hoped we should not act as a thoughtless young couple some ; times do. who are in a hurry to marry first, j and then look around to get something to j make the pot boil. He beseeched the house to act with sobriety and solemn con | sidcrution. Whatever his opinion might be about the war, lie said, if he was not in the habit of withholding ids pledges, if we should unavoidably plunge into one, he believed he should not be backward in affoi di>«:> bis aid to bring it to an honora ble e*ose. Bat he did not believe war to be the object, and his reason was, because there is no preparation ior it. j_i’0 BE f OA v JSUED.^ SALEM, ApiffR NORTli OF i A-ROPE. On WrdDtodiiV the Plato united here in ’lie short passage o, 3i days from Gotlenbnrg. ! On her artiv 1 v e i*ad an immediate report, ulAf Bonaparte r,:-d actually declared v/..r a gainst Russia, and quitteu Paris for the North m direct the military operations in person — | We have since conversed with ?> ir. W. II. i i .. .v't. the supercargo, who informs us, that I aii:('i.!';U toe ouim rous reports in constant cir | cuLtion at Gotten burg, this was brought thi | ihcr by the last ir.cil from Copenhagen. But ; though it was not received ?.s a certainty, yet ♦he whole system of military movements indi j caled that u campaign would commence with the opening of spring. French troops were continually passing for the north; and not less than 140,000 were said to be ready to act | immediately against Russia, who was also cm 1 ployed in making preparations for her saie I ly* 1 he well known cause of offence m Russia, j is her relaxation in the continental system ; ; and if Alexander will not engage to execute it in its full rigor, Bonaparte will set out to take lodgings in the imperial palace at Peters burg, as he has heretofore done at Berlin and Vienna. In this state of things, Alexander lias discovered a solicitude to make peace with the Turks, winch Bonaparte’s intrigues have doubtless been employed to frustrate. The m gociations which followed the lust great vie tory of the Russians were considered as bru\ to a elute, and every tiling was prepared in Petersburg tor celebrating the event of peace when suddenly it was found the Turks had receded from the treaty ; on which Alcxun der sent out new commissioners, empowered it was said to make peace at any rate. If tnir is effected, his large armies ol Turkey will bi recalled to the defence oi the empire ; but in their route they will have to encounter the French, who .-re so stationed as to dispute their passage. Whether Alexander will again ha zard the empire upon another struggle against the power of France, whose means in the north seem to be grea ter than evi l*, or whether he will submit lnaennitely to tnc requisitions oi the ruler of the continent, we shall soon hear. Extensive and terrible as is the power of France, it is not Russia alone in the north that has ventured in some measure to act as an in dependent nation. The little kingdom ot Sweden has never yet been brought fully into the continental system ; and English as well as American commerce is permitted, und^r restrictions and licences, and all Bonaparte’s requisions are not complied with. Sometime since, on the French minister’s making some unreasonable demand of Bernadotte, he tore up the papers and threw them in his face, and the minister immediately made off to Copen hagen. Bernadotte has recently given ano ther instance of his independent spirit in re gard to France. lie apprehended that Bona parte intended to take possession of Pomera nia in order to have a further control of the southern coast of the Baltic; lie therefore gave orders to his commander, if the French enter ed, to retreat to the isle of Rngen, and fortify and defend to the last extremity ; but he fail ed in the execution of those orders; the French got possession without difficulty, and Berna dotte immediately broke this general. Ber nadotte is beloved by the Swedes ; they be lieve he consults the interest of the country as much as is in his power ; and it is under stood the old king is shortly to abdicate the throne and Bernadotte to be invested with the full powers of royally. The trade of Denmark is under the follow ing regulations —No vessels cun be admitted into any port in Denmark without first obtain ing a licence from the king, all sales made at auction by order of the king, and the proceeds are deposited in the bank contoir , . j out ill twelve monthly instalments h, i' psfl 1 Hamburg at thc rate of exchange 0f’.‘ ""1 I In consequence of the preparations'|,V! l''i ! between Russia and France, th0 n..,. v, *l Russia hat! considerably fallen, .lpV:r: H I ] were merely nominal, as the trai^itX1'’!*' ' I I Austria and Germany, which hrd considerable height,’would be cm l - :fl| armies.
