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

All the accounts we. receive from the

favorable to the cause of Spanish indepen

secured by the attachment of the people to

that a gallant and enthusiastic people arc
destitute of those resources in nrtns and am

to their courage.
