Lownow, Feb. 18.
HOUSE OF LORDS. j1 MR RICA. The order of the day being moved. Lord Grenville rose to bring forward.his long expected motion for the repeal of the Or ders in Council, as far as they affect the U. States of America —His lordship began by recalling to the recollection of the house, the opinions he had invariably expressed during the course of the last session on that subject: the intention he had avowed of bringing for ward a motion grounded on the evidence then recently taken at the bar, and which motion would have been similar in many respects to that which he should have the honor this day of submitting to their lordships. If he had forborne to bring forward that motion, it was because reports had gone abroad at the time as grateful to his feelings, as if realised, they would have proved beneficial to the interest of the country, viz. that ministers had alter ed their mind respecting America, and were disposed to resort to measures less calculated to alienate from us the good disposition of the American government and people. Sorry he was that such reports had no foundation in fact. Sorry he was, that his majesty’s go vernment should have persisted in a system, which he had no hesitation in saying, was a direct violation of the laws of nations, a fla grant infringement of the eternal principles of justice. Such is the light in which he had all along considered that system ; but when he found it persevered in after the proposal of the American Government in August last, he must now, moreover, designate it as an act of the egregious folly, the result of the most .unexampled ignorance. In August last, A merica proposed to you to repeal or suspend r.er emearfjo, as tar as it ejected iiiitish commerce, if you would rescind your orders In Council as far as they effected the com me i ce of America That proposition you have rejected, and by rejecting it, you incur the odium & blame of being the cause of the embargo, & of the continuance ol alt the evils consequent upon that measure. All that has been arguednn thisques.ion, & all he had ad vanced respecting it at different times, it was by no means his intentition how to repeat. He should confine himself simply to the state ment of two questions, via. was it just, poli tic, and wise, to refuse the offer made by A merica in August last, and thereby prolong the existence of the evils that must arise from the present state of our relations with America i Or is it prudent now to revise that fatal determination, and return to soun der councils, and less hazardous measures > By the unjust and shameful proceedure ■we hadjjdopted, we put a stop to the neu trality orEurope, we enabled the enemy more eR'cCiuaiiy io exclude our commerce from the Continent, than perhaps he ever ima gined he should be able to effect: but Ame rica still remained, and opened to us in ano ther quarter of the globe, a mart for all our commodities, a supply of all the materials of our industry, from which the enemy, with all his immense power on the Continent of Europe, had no means of debarring us. Yet instead of softening and smoothing down eve ry difference that arose between the two countries, instead of pursuing a policy that must have attached America to our alliance and our interest, we have done every thing to inflame and exasperate her, every thing to estrange her affections, and indispose us towards her interests. Such is the direct tendency of the policy which his Majesty’s present ministers seem resolved to pursue. How different is it from that which the wis dom of Mr Pitt adopted in 1763, which since that period has been pursued ar.d acted upon, which, when he had the honor of be ing called to his Majesty’s Councils, he had endeavored to re-establish, by the adjust ment of a commercial treaty, founded upon the reciprocal interests of the 2 nations. But now instead of cultivating thr.t connection, instead of fostering that system of reci procity, it would appear to be now the plan of Ministers to alienate America, and force her into the arms of France. If this wasim politic and unwise from the beginning, how much must it be felt so since the offer of Ame rica in August last. Respecting the nature ol that offer, the strongest misrepresentati ons have been made. It has been asserted in that house, that in her negociations with France, and with this country respecting the repeal of the French decrees, and of our or ders in Council, America had manifested a decided partiality in favor of France. By these assertions, he had himself been entrap ped into a belief that they were well found ed, and in consequence of that conviction, he had made use of expressions respecting men Sc measures, which he was now most an xious to retract. What could be the motive of the misrepresentations of this matter which wa& so easily sent abroad, and so industri ously propagated, he would not take upon himself to say ; but he felt it his duty fully and accurately to inform himself upon the subject, and the result of his enquiries has abundantly satisfied him that the misrepre sentation he alluded to had nothing in the world to warrant them. He should under take to prove not only that the words of the President of the U. S. relative to the pending negociations were misinterpreted, but that from irrefragable documents he would de mostrate that there were no grounds what soever for the charge of partiality on the part of America towards France, to the prejn dice of this country. The noble lord then proceeded to read the passage in the speech of the president of the U. States to Congress, which relates to the negociations with the two governments of France and England. 1 he Noble Lord also read the report made by Congress in answer to the president’s ad dress, and argued, both from the teat of the speech & the comment upon it, with a view to prove that instead of any partiality towards France, the terms proposed were rather more favorable'to England. The tenor of the instructions from the American government to their npnisters at Paris and at London, die noble Lord likewise referred to as contain ing stronger proofs of the impartiality of A naerica, or rather of her inclimation to side sooner with Englaud than with France.— From all these documents, it appeared, and it was put instill stronger light in a letter from Mr. Canning to Mr. FinXney, which however, docs not appear among the papers on the table, tha* America h*ld out nearly the name terms, couched in nearly the same language to both governments.—To France she observed, that if the French government did not repeal their decrees while England revoked her orders in Council, America mu'it be forced into a contest with France; in th« other passages of the correspondence, the word '‘War” was expressly made use of. Indeed not only did a perfect impartiality respecting the two governments appear to guide the proceedings of America, but a fair tuU full consideration .of them would induce every unprejudiced mind to think, instead of much being offered to Fiance and little to England, the reverse was the case, and that much had been offered to England and little to France. By listening to the offer in August last, En gland might have secured two advantages— the repeal of the Embargo, and the next to a certainty, of having America as an allv in the war against France; while France, in the first instance, had the offer of but one advantage ; these were considerations which he could not too strongly recommend to the serious attention of their Lordships. Let the offer of America in August last, be candidly considered. Let the advantages of embra cing it, and the evils that must result trom rejecting it, be maturely weighed. This was the great object he had in view ; and to which he must again implore the serious at tention of their lordships. In ordertoattain that object, he should now move an humble address to his majesty, the drift of which was to pray his majesty would be graciously pleased, while the door for negneiation was still open, to adopt such measures ns might tend to restore our wonted relations with A I merica, and re establish the former footing 1 of our commercial intercourse with that ! Country. The Address movedbv the Noble 1 Lord was very long, and refers to most of the transactions which have taken place bei ween this country and America, for the last two years. Lord Bathurst answered the Noble mover, and went into a detail of all his arguments; he contended that the Orders in Council a* rose of necessity from the French decrees, and said, that so far trom their being the cause of the American embargo, that in fa*, t the Orders in Council were not known in America until the 26th December and before that day the embargo had taken place. He next adverted to the accounts laid on the table, and insisted that they prov ed we had suffered no diminution in our re venue in consequence of the Non-Importa tton Act. which was a thing totally distinct from the Embargo ; with respect to the want of flaxseed that the Noble Lord had stated was an irremediable mischief for the linen manufacture of Ireland ; it was true that at the present moment it might occa sion nconvemence, but that would only be of a temporary pressure, for large quantities were rai -ed in our own settlements in North America; but at ptesent it was frozen up in the river St Laurence, and could not ar rive until June, which certainly would he too late tor the pres-nt sowing season. It was, however, an evil not likely to recur because, in addition to this supply, large tracts in Ireland were now sown with seed designed purposely for future sowings. It would also appear, by reference to the na pe.* oefure the House ; that although.* in consequence of the Embargo, and the ports being shut in the Baltic, that the impnrta t*on from them had been but small ; vet to counterbalance it, we had imported from our own Colony of Canada, more of timber lumber, and all those articles which we u we sually obtained from the closed ports than had before imported from those states. This he need not say, was one advantage ari sing from the Embargo, as it led us to im prove our own resources, and rendered us independent. His Lordship then adverted to the justice and expediency of the (Orders and urged, that they were perfectly accor’ ding to the law of nations, and that it was the necessary consequence of the state of warfare, that neutrals must suffer in the enjoyment of their Commerce, when then neighbors were engaged in warfare. Lord Sidmouth defended the legality of the Order of the 7th of January 1806, which related to the coasting trade, which he said a neutral had no right to carry on for the benefit of one of the belligerents, at the ex pence of the other For a neutral could ac quire no new rights by the state of war • and that was a trade which in peace he could not pursue. But he insisted that a new *ra arose in the question when the Americans offered to rescind their Embar go, with respect to us, and continue it only with respect to France, if we would aban don our orders in council; he thought then it became the duty of this country to at tempt conciliation, and to that pacific pro position, we ought to assume a suitable dis position to conciliation. He insisted that as it was not done, Ministers had shewn a hostile disposition, and. therefore, he con curred in the motion of his hon. friend. Lord Melville said he should not intrude upon their lordship's time ; but he wished to observe, that the question seemed to be wholly misunderstood, both by the noble mo ver and the noble Viscount (Sidmouth.) The one said that his object was to discuss the entire merits of the case ; the other, that he was desirous of submitting to the notice of his majesty, the distrust he felt of the persons at the head of government; the former alluding to the transactions, and the latter to those who were concerned in conducting them. He (lord Melville) should have thought it more manly to have taken a direct course instead of attempting to pass a vote of cen sure thus blended, in which the real design was rendered obscure. He resisted this ad diess, because it was an unnecessary inter position of the house, during a negotiation now pending with the United States. Other motives he had for opposing the motion of the noble baron, which he would briefly ex | piain: me origin ot the orders in council was the edict of Beilin, which violated all the maritime rights which had been recog nized in Europe for centuries. The first proceeding in consequence of those edicts was on the 7ih January, 1807, and the na tore of it had been misapprehended. The rule of the war in 1756 was supposed to be the effect of the order in council ; but if this were all, the order itself would have been unproductive and nugatory: if such were the whole result, it would liave been incom petent to encounter with it the Berlin de crees, which extended not only to France, but to all nations dependant upon her autho rity. The rule of the war of 1756 might merely be considered as a coasting regula tion ; the orders in conncil were founded on the just principle of retaliation, and so thev were correctly explained in Lord How ick’s admirable letter on the subject. He (lord Melville) hail stated that the Berlin edicts were a violation of all maritime and neutral rights. But there were neutral duties as well as neutral rights. A neutral state should hold the balance even between the belligerent powers; and if this duty were neglected, the neutral rights would lie for feited. Lord Howick properly contempla ted these duties ; and seeing the preference which must be given to France under the operation of the edict, lie properly observed that he could not rescind the orders in coun cil until these edicts were revoked ; & he ad ded, as fitly, that unoer other circumstances, to abandon the order in Council would be to resign the best principles of n».r maritime rights. Why should not these just maxims !>e regarded f Could the Himsy ccrvespon dence between Gen. Armstrong and the French minister, at Paris, vindicate then surrender ? It was no wonder that France was mortified and America disappointed ; for before the salutary operation of the or ders in Council, the whole produce of the colonies of the former was conveyed to Eu rope by the shipping of the latter. The or ders in council had undergone a long and laborious discussion ; unless their lordships meant to abandon all that they before res pected. they could not now repeal them, un less, admitting the measure to be correct, ihev had seen so much mischief in the mod* of its execution, as to obstruct all its beneficial tendeucy. But no such objection had been mentioned, and be believed no such existed. It was said, that by the corres pondence on the table, between Mr. Pink nev and Mr. Canning, it appeared that if the orders in council were rescinded, the Embargo would be withdrawn Were we, on such a proposal, to desert what was coo sidered so essential to the preservation of our maritime rights ? Were we on such an obscure intimation, to resign what we and our predecessors in office deemed to be so important to our highest interests ? He was no advocate for prejudicing America. God forbid that he should trier consider that the adversity of America was the prosperity of G. Britain; on the contrary he thought that the prosperity of the one was now, and would be for a long while, highly conducive to the welfare of tht other. If all Asia ami Africa, and Europe, this kingdom excepted, were with America, and this country against her, it would not lie so advantageous a situation for her, as if we were with her, [and all the rest of the globe opposed to her, and he ho ped she would so far understand her true in terest, Sc shew her correct views of them by her future conduct towards us. Never was there a period more favorable to a close u nion between Great Britain and the Ame rican States than the present (hear hear ! ) but this desirable purpose was not to be attained by revoking the orders in council on the feeble grounds now stated._ He could not coincide with the noble mover because he could not on this occasion con demn ministers without applying the same condemnation to thtir lordships, who had i deliberately sanctioned the measures re j presented in this address as unjust and im politic Lord Auckland, in reply to the last speak ker,observed that the treaty to which he alluded, was in point of fact concluded, tho’ not formally published, before anv question aros- about the Berlin Decree. Hie Lord Chancellor took a review of the history oftiic proceedings which led to the Berlin decree, the Orders in Council and the Embargo. He insisted that it was evi dent the whole was meant to destroy us thro* the medium of our commerce, being found unassailable in other points Lord Erskine condemned the measures of administration, and urged, if we had a dopted the offer made lv> Mr. Pinkney, we should have opened m amicable intercourse with America, and that France must eitliei have recalled her Decrees or have been forced into a state of hostility wich Ameri ca. Lord Liverpool went through the docu ments before the II..use. and argued, that -he Americans had acted with great partiality. He cited the instructions to the Ambassa dors in England and Fi ance, and agreed it I was evident, that the.- wished to aid die I latter to pursue every hostile measure against us, provided only, they would relax a lit-j tie, but from us they demanded nothing short of a peremptory recall of our orders. He' then adverted to the state of our West In-! dies, and said the embargo had proved what before was never believed, namely, that our Islands could subsist without any intercourse with America. Lord Grenville replied at some length. The question was th.-n put on Lord Gren ville’s address, upon which the House divi ded. Contents, present, 31.

A revolution has broken out at Buenos A> res, in South-America, under the cele brated Liniers, where he has declared his intention to shake off the dominion of Spain. He has been joined by numbers, anti the Governor of Paraguay, his brother in-law, lias likewjse openly avowed the same cause. General Elio, the Governor of Monte Viedo, is the only person who has, as yet, dared to oppose those insurgents. February 18. All the accounts we. receive from the southern and eastern provinces of Spain, are favorable to the cause of Spanish indepen dence, as far as that independence is tube secured by the attachment of the people to their ancient institutions, and to the family of the Bourbons. But we are sorry to say, that a gallant and enthusiastic people arc destitute of those resources in nrtns and am munition, which are necessary to give effect to their courage. The anxiety of the merchants here, is di rected to the situation of Oporto. A great manv ships, principally laden with wine a-o now in that port, which, from the state of the wind, have not been able to clear the bar, and serious apprehensions arc enter tained, that they will fall into the hands of the enemy.
