BUT v/e fhali for the prefent, fuppofe that an extenlion of their commerce was an obi eel of importance to the United States, Let us next enquire what was the real worth of the Mediterranean trade, and proceed whb dating the amount of the tribute which this country pays to the Algerines for leave to car R on. 'A-e fhaii then compare the two lides of the bargain; and draw the con clufion ol profit or lofs. In IT93, the exports to Italy and M /rrcco came to tv o hundred and 1 twenty-two thoufand dollars. 1 he ex ports or the United States were', in > whole, twenry jfiy millions. T hr trade to thefc two countries made, at that; time, an hundred and eighteenth part! of the* total rnafs of exportation. In 1797, ciic exports to Italy and Morocco * cametofevrn hundred and j note. j * This country is here claffed as a 1 Mediterranean flatc ; but it lies more upon the Ocean. " C »«* Jjw Ml r V> rightv two choutand dollars. The fpe rificrd exports of tiic United States for hat year came to fifty-one millions md three hundred thoufand dollars. I here was befides a large cliafni of omiHlons in the exports of v;outh-Ca rolina. 1 he whole amount might per hsps be fifty-four millions. Of this mr.fs, :he exports to Italy and Moroc co form a Sixty ninth part. i he trade to thefe two countries mult be regarded as the only advantage arising from the Algerine negotiation. Bu; tht year 1797 tar exceeded the nc murn of exports; and farther, the Dutch and Englilh would nave been glad to convey, In their own bot toms, whatever proportion of Ameri can^ commodities die two countries migiu warn, U is mod likely that a P'tcof die exports from the United i to Italy and Morocco, ;r: ITq ^,] were taken from this country in foreign I bottoms, and under the name of Eno- ! *and, or Holland,for example. I mention | Liu i v/ereiy to (hew rhac the augmen- j tanon of die kalian trade fhould not be altogether aicribed to the Algerine treaty, which, perhaps had no fhare whatever tn me increase of exports. i neie particulars prove the iniTgni in-ant objcd for which America has; become tribunary to Algiers. On an j average, the exports ought not to be rated at more tnan five or f k hundred thoiuand dollars, per annum The grea ter parr or iheie cargoes alio would have been tranfported by the Dutch and! E~igU;h merchants for the common and! j moderate percentage of the carrying! [ trade. Hcvu.it the clear and rest! ^rofu | arifmg from the friendfnip of Algiers ; comes to a very trifling matter. It i> only this, that wc have a market forne vvhat better than what we othcrwiu might have had for an hnndreth part of our foreign commerce. We buy and feii mr ourlclves, ijiltc.sd of traniactinr/ througn the medium of a third party! In tnat petty portion of trade, there fore, we ihaii buy and fell perhaps five | per cent, better than we ctherwile could j have done. But even that is doubtful, j A folitary American captain, when he i tafors the port of Leghorn with a cargo, has many difadvantages in competiiii* ; with the imports of an eftabliftied Brf i tilh houfe. ! Bun iuppofe that thirty thoufancl dob j lars per annum ol additional p:ofit arc made by the trade to that part of the j world, fince it has been extended under the wings of the Algerine treaty, f and j fmcc it was carried on in American bor i toms .All is not won that goes into the j purjcy fays the proverb. If die capital employed in the carrying trade can be much better expended in farming, then the whole benefits pretended to come from the tribute to Barbary mud ifluc in a perfect bubble. I fhali hereafter go into .-that argument a? form length , and fhali >nly remark in this'place that the fituaticr. of a farmer is certainly mere indepenrlant and more nappy than that either oi a failor, or of an exporting merchant. Of the former, one half <70, to the bottom. Of the latter, one hair ! go to ja»U or at leaf! become mfolvents! But, in the loaded wind that: whilUc.j through the Bey, in the mod nnivcriui crafh that overwhelms commercial cre dit, the indodrious farmer enjoys the plea fure of his ownficcfide.He goes to reft without fear of a ftarting plank, Jleeps in a decent bed, and a dry fhirr, and, as he NOTE. f Such a conlequence of the treaty is not here affirmed, but only granted for the fake of argument. wakes in the morning, find- his wuh fnckhng the youngclt of her children, and the reft of his boys and his girls romping in the barn yard. d lie tarmers of America have more lari'a at home than they can cultivate : and many of our merchants are giving fix per cent per month for bank notes' Under thefe clrcumitance.-, it L very injudicious to pay a laige fum of tribute for rhe carrying trade of tae Levant. That trade nay be worm the ambition of England, or Of Holland , bur the peculiar ficuaticn of America makes it to her fuperfluous. The AI geiine tribute is juft f• much money utterly caft away ; becaufe the capita! employed upon that branch of the car rying trade which >t protects, could be much better expended at home upon badges, canals, and high roads. d have thus attempted to form an eft 1 mace of the worth of the Mediterra nean trade. The next point m order is to at certain the amount of the Alge rine tribute, that a judgement maybe formed ot the vifdom and ceconoruy of the whole tranfaction. CRAP 111.
