This day, agreeably to public notice, a meeting of the friends of the administration, was held at the State House Yard, to ex press their opinions on our national affairs. At a little after 2 o’clock, Mr. John Steele, in the name of the Committee of Superin tendance, proposed General John Bar it er as Chairman, and Frederick YVol bert as Secretary. The nomination was npproved of by the acclamations of an im mense multitude—after which Gen. JOHN BARKER took the Chair, and Frederick YY'olbert, acted as Sec’ry. General Barker, in a perspicuous manner, Stated the manner in which the meeting had been called and the proceedings prepared. He stated, that there would be read and submitted to their consideration, a letter to the President of the United States, a num ber of resolutions and an address to the Peo ple of the United States. Mr. YY'olbert then proceeded to read the letter to the Presi dent, -which was approved by an unanimous vote, as were the several resolutions and the address to the People, all of which will be found in the subsequent columns of our paper. We think we are within bounds when wc say, there were 10,000 citizens, who, with hearts and voices, pledged themselves to support the administration of the general government, and the honor, freedom and in dependence of their country. Democratic Tress. TO JAMES MADISON; Eso. PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. The republican citizens of the first Con gressional district of the state of Pennsylva nia, conceive it will not he unacceptable to you, as the first magistrate of a free people, to receive the sincere assurances of their confidence, and attachment to the principles which Wave distinguished your political life ; hut above all, since you have succeeded to the choir, so happily filled, for two terms, by a man. who it is your mutual honor to have been unshaken friends, and who is the orna. ment of his country and the pride of his fel low citizens. Tiie citizens of this district can, with the most perfect confidence, with the assurances of the most firm reliance on the wisdom and integrity of your character, declare ; that t heir hearts arc with you and their country. And that they are prepared to partake their full share of any perils or privations ; toper form any portion of personal service, or vo luntarily yield any pecuniary contribution, that the support of the independence, honor and interests of the happy nation over which you preside, may require. In common with all good men, in every part of the Union, we have beheld with emo lions of delight and an honest pride, the mo deration and dignity with which national j concerns of great difficulty have been con ducted under your guidance; and we cannot withhold the expression of our most cordial approbation of your conduct, in the dismissal of thut insolent minister, Francis James Jackson, Without presuming to interfere with the rightful authority vested in the chief magis trate, to conduct the foreign relations of our country, your fellow citizens of this part of the Union, think it correct to aflirm, that they have for a long time anticipated, that all the sacrifices made by this country to the ' spirit of peace; that all the measures ofpo licy and negociation so honestly conducted on your part, and that of your predecessor ; that the earnest desire of the American go verument, to maintain a rigid fk exemplary neutrality, to consider all nations “in peace friends, and enemies only in war,” that all the forbearance from justifiable retaliation, i and confinement to diplomatic demands of' honest justice, would in the end prove una vailing; and that the issue must ultimately he to the nerves and the virtues of the ge iteration, that has succeeded those who De fore triumphed over the oppressor of oar country. What the course of policy best calculated to unsure the best result is, we do not ven ture to suggest; we confide in the authori ties constituted to maintain our national rights and independence, anJ look every day with growing solicitude for the reino. val of that anxiety, which is the necessa ry effect ot fluctuating measures in Con., gress. We urge the notice of the measures of congress as a fact, that merits the serious regard of those-who are constitutionally ap pointed the rulers of the nation, in the last resort. We naturally look back upon the progress of events,from the ye ar 17'JGto the present ♦lay, and find each succe isive year to have produced new and aggravated grievances, insults and outrages upon our Country, oir fellow citizens, our property and our Mag. From the experience which we have had. we cannot calculate upon a peace in Europe, J"f many years; and looking to the progres sive growth of wrongs, from trivial to the mbit enormous injuries; wc ask ourselves; and submit the consideration to you, sir, whe ther forbearance might not become a crime, in submitting to any further aggravating of wronp. and insults; but above all, wc»re* spectrally submit, whether the cuT< ct of fur ther Mifierance, njay not lie as fatal to the confidence of the peple in their government, as thu nit. o.rcs that Imvc been pursued have been rr.availing. VVu submit it to our government, whether men‘ ores w:uch only operate in favor of fie . piftvity and the enemies of our country, and to tr-e »*i«advmitHge of the virtuous n u t of tlu cumhdndty, may not ultimately, if persevered In, prove more dangerous to public morals and public interest, than any other course of measures which could be pursued. IVe have addressed you, sir, in the lan Suage and spirit of a reverential affection ; ic boldness of our address, will not, we art persuaded, be misconstrued. We think it full time that the whole people should declare that they are ready to maintain, at every lia - zard, the government of their choice, the chief magistrate and their representatives, who are faithful to the .independence of the nation and its most sacred rights, amt to express a hope, that their government will not longer suffer them to be outraged with impunity. JOHN BARKER, Chairman. Frederick Wolbert, Secretary. TO THE PEOPLE~OF THE UNITED STATES. Fellow-Citizens, Common circumstances would not jus tify, nor do common circumstances impel us to address you. Since the glad tidings of peace was proclaimed throughout our land, trom the foundation of our government, ne ver has so momentous and critical x period, as the present, elapsed. We have deter mined to make known our sentiments, and solicit you to manifest yours. Citizens of a country we love, living under a constitution wc venerate, having a common cause and a common interest, common hopes and anxi eties, we are as desirous to know your opi nions as we are willing to make known our own. UnANJMiTr at home in oir/t on yEC7\ a so is The one thing needful. Having secured that, we may laugh to scorn the malice of our enemies and make them, yes, the proudest of them, to tremble and be afraid. To effect this great good, this desirable end, we know no means so ade quate, or so easy, as that of the citizens as sembling in public meetings and instructing their representatives. These are rights which ought now, if ever, to be universally exercised. Wc request your attention, fellow-citizens, while we state nomc of the motives which have prompted us to action. In Europe one revolution has rapidly succeeded another— one government has been removed and an other substituted-one monarch has been burled to the earth, and another has assum ed his throne-cities, towns, villages and their inhabitants have changed masters— hundreds of thousands of human beings have perished in the mighty conflict ; but no | where has the voice of the people been heard —no where has Freedom triumphed, or Justice, tempered by Mercy, ruled the na tion. The eye of humanity is dim’d at the retrospect, and the bosom of Philanthropy heaves a sigh at the recollection of what xlope had promised. i sickened at the scenes exhibiting in Eu rope, Benevolence turns towards the shores of Columbia and excitingly proclaims “ there rents the ho/ie of the world." We are, in deed, fellow-cititizens, the guardians not only of our own rights and the rights of our posterity, but of the hopes of the whole hu man race. How precious the trust! How sacred the deposit! Our bosoms swell with gratitude to Heaven, that we are this high ly favored people ; our sinews stiffen & our strength redoubles in the confident belief, | that he, who iias thus distinguished us, will, by his Gracious Providence, safely guide us through all the perils and dangers which may assail us. The wars which have desolated some of the fairest portions of Europe, have not been unproductive of evil to the United States. The belligerents have, hy edicts hostile to neutral commerce, and in violation of public law and the principles of Justice, done us essential injury ; but those edicts, however they might have affected our growing pros perity, would never have excited the strung sensations which have agitated the Ameri can mind on another subject. One of the belligerents has, under various and vexati ous pretences, asserted a right to board not only our merchant ships, but our national ships, even in our own waters ; to muster the crew and impress such, and as many, as their caprice or their wants might require. In the exercise of this tyranny, they have outraged humanity, sported with our lives, trampled on our honor and struck tne flag of our country ! That fag which the proud spirit of a Montgomery would have planted on the walls of Quebec—That fag, before which Jlurgoyne surrendered and Cornwal lis capitulated—That fag, under which Washington, Greene and many a named and nameltss hero fought and conquered—'1'hat fag, under which we gloriously ulchieved Independence and secured Freedom, was by cruelty and treachery bathed in the blood of our unsuspecting fellow- citizens. We do not wish to fan the flame of passion ; he who can patiently think of the outrage oh the Chesapeake, has neither the feelings of a man nor the spirit of an American ! But the cup of our humiliation was not yet full, A special minister was sent under pretence of making atonement for the out- ; rage committed, and his first and only pro position was, that we should declare our selves in the wjong, by withdrawing the Proclamation which forbad tiie rights of hos pitality to those who had so grossly abused it. The proposition was spurned and the minister who made it returned from whence ne came. To manifest the strict neutrality and im partial justice of the nation, our govern ment laid a general Embargo. It was a wise, peaceable and provident measure ; I but the virtue of a portion of our citizens was not proof against the lnremcnts to wealth, which were held out. So gross was the conduct of the British government at this period, that they actually issued ail or der of council, inviting, nay offering boun ties to our citizens to break the law of the land. This alone was a justifiable cause of war. Last spring an agreement was entered in to between our government and the minis ter plenipotentiary of Great Britain—By which our Embargo was raised as it res peeted that power and its dependencies !— On the faith ol this agreement, our ships, freighted with provisions, naval stores anti raw materials, to the amount of millions, sail r.d for England-her wants were supplied, and her government perfidiously refused to sanction the agreement her minister pleni potentiary had made.-She recalled the minister who wished to lay the foundations of ' Peace, Commeice and Honest Friend ship/ and in his place, sent a man red with the blood of an innocent and ui .offending neu tral nation■ — a man who has every when been the precursor of evil-in three words, •lie sent Francis •famcv Jack noli. lie, even hv., was received in the spirit of amity—but lie, forsooth, had no apologies to teuder, no atonements to make, no propositions to offer . lie was willing to hear and discuss and trans •nit——to trifle with our wrong* ami mock at our bleeding honor-and when he was checked in the high carefcr of insolence, he turned short upon his heel and contemptu ously gave our government the lie—and then he appealed to the people to sanction his in sult—to criminate their own government and applaud that of the King, his mas ter ! Citizens of the United States, let not the appeal be made in vain ; meet and announce ; vour sentiments. If you arc base enough to lick the foot upraised to spurn you-if ye i are slaves enough in spirit 10 kiss the baud which yet recks with the blood of your fa thers and brothers-meet and unite your efforts with those of *• the British party,” to re-colonize these United States, and once again become the subjects of (ieorge the , 1 hird—hut it the Spirit of Y6 lives in your ; ; bosoms——if one drop of the blood of the he- j i roes of that period courses in your veins, j then will you me. t, an 1 solemnly before the ! throne of Heaven declare to defend your go_ : verninent and country, and their Indepen dence, at the hazard ut all that is dear ini life—nay, to cling to them even in the grasp i of death. The proceedings of our government, in ! ! respect to foreign powers, have been so up J right, so blameless and patriotic, and are so i j well known to all our fellow-citizens, that | ; we deem it useless to recapitulate, and un- i necessary to praise. It has manifested a love of Justice and Peace, and a determiim. tion to be strictly neutral, which, had they ! been met by reciprocal dispositions, would have not only secured the prosperity and happiness of our own country, but wtuhl have smoothed the wrinkled front of war, and meliorated its miseries. Our govern ment have been so far from seeking cause for war, that they have put it by when it has obtruded itself. Our government has been so unwilling to enter Into ‘the unpro fitable contest,* that they have rather lin gered behind public opinion, and moderat ed public resentment, than hastened the one or whetted the other. Such a govern ment deserves to be supported, and we pledge ourselves collectively and individual, ly, that in itsdefence wc are most willing to risque our ail. The times and circumstances demand, that we cast off all reserve, that we unbo som ourselves freely—and we frankly con fess that to us War appears inevitab e. We love Peace—a long train of blessings and comforts attend her, and we would have her to dwell with us, if Freedom, Honor and Indefundence did not stand fettered and in danger. We hear their voice, and spring from the downy couch of Peace to meet the rugged tug of War I War! with all thy dangers and thy evils, thou art welcome—for thou wilt pluck up our own drowning honor by the locks, and once again give us ‘ our equal station among the nations of the earth !* Fellow Citizens, we have dkV harged our duty-We call upon you to discharge yours. Remember, that every individual owes a duty to society ; and that if ever the discharge of that duty becomes a solemn and sacred obligation, it is so at this time. JOHN BARKER, Chairman. F. Wolbert, ■Secretary. The following resolutions were then read, and the question being taken on them seve rally, they were carried without a dissent ing voice : 1. Resolved, As the opinion of this meet ing, tiiat die conduct of ttie Executive of the United States, in treating witii the govern ment of Great Britain, and every other fo reign government, and their agents, has been moderate, dignified, and such as comports with the sincerity and good faith of the chief magistrate of a free, neutral and independent nation. 2. Resolved, That in the various acts of perfidy, insult and outrage upon cur citizens, property, flag and country, committed by Great Britain, we see no prospect of obtain ing justice or redress by diplomatic negoci ation. 3. Resolved, That we consider the outrage committed upon the Chesapeake, as an au thorised and deliberate act of hostility, on the part of the British government; and that the various artifices and frauds, combined with breach of faith and contumelious insult, displayed by the ministers and agents of G. Britain, constitute acts of war, calling for immediate atonement or immediate retalia tion. 4. Resolved, That the proclamation of the king and privy council of Great Britain, in viting our citizens to break me laws of our country, was an interference in our internal government, which would, in itself, justify a declaration of war. 5. Resolved, That the proposition of the British government, to enforce our laws by its navy, was an insidious attempt to repre sent the American government as unable to carry into effect the laws which it passed ; and to wheedle us into a war, to maintain British domination on the ocean. 6. Resolved, That savage nations are just ly condemned for murdering their prisoners ; and the Barbary powers for putting them to hard labor ; but it was reserved for the Bri ! tisli government to refine upon crnelty, so far as to seize upon the citizens of a friend I ly and neutral nation, and compel them to | fight against and murder their fellow conn I trymen, their friends, their fathers, and their brothers. 7. Resolved, That in dismissing a super cilious and insolent minister, called Francis James Jackson, the executive of the United States ha3 maintained the dignity of the chief magistrate of a free and independent peo ple, and that the great mass «f the citizens, in onr opinion, is ready to rally under the I national standard, whenever the Congress shall respond to the feelings and spirit of the people. 8. Resolved, As the opinion of this meet ing, that looking back to the period of the re volution, we see a strong similarity, in the circumstances and causes of the wrongs and injuries which we had then and subsequent ly have suffered, and that the injuries and insults, murdering* and plunder, the tyran ny over our commerce, and the limitation of its direction, without a British license, im periously call upon our governmert, to take such measures as may be best calculated, to assert and secure tbc rights of the nation, either by resistance and tne force of arms, or by entering into engagoments similar to those of the armed neutrality of 1780. for maintaining neutral rights and the freedom of the seas, 9. Resolved, That the commerce of the United Suites ever has, and ever shall, un dcr Providence, be conducted without a Bri fish license, and without the protection ol the British navy, 10. Resolved, 'IT t we recommend it to onr representatives in Congress, to propose, that in order to assyue the restoration of our fellow Citizens impressed Into the British navy, a law be enacted, authorising the sei zure of an equal number of British subjects, with those detained in British bondage ; to, be treated as hostages, and put t;> useful e*n- j ployinents, according totiieir capacities, tlu ring their detention, or till the restoration of: our fellow citizen*, lyi.inir.ally impressed ; and that our representatives in Congress be requested to propose, as a fundamental law of thS land, a provision of the same import, to continue to all future times, and be exten ded to all foreign nations. 11. Resolved. That as citizens of a free nation, having u right to expresatour opini ons on public measures under discussion, we do deprecate and protest against the ruin ous, weak, and inadequate projects contain ed in certain propositions offered to Congress by the chairman of the committee of foreign relations. 12. Resolved, That tl’.e militia is the, ar my of the constitution, and the bulwark of the republic ; and that it ought to be pro perly organized, disciplined, armed and u niformed. 13. Resolved, That our chairman be re quested to transmit, as soon as possible, a copy of the preceding address and resoluti ons to the president of the United States ; and a copy of the resolutions to each the senators of this state, and the representatives ot this district in Congress.
