"To you, Mr. Chairman, belongs the high
privilege of transmitting, unimpaired, to
posterity, the fair character and liberty of
our country. Do you expect to execute this
high trust by trampling, or suffering to be
trampled down, law, justice, the constitu

ty, and ambition? When the minions of des
potism heard, in Europe, of the seizure of
Pensacola, how did they chuckle, and chide
the admirers ol our institutions, tauntingly
pointing to the demonstration of a spirit of
injustice and aggrandizement made by
country, in the midst of an amicable négoci
ation of a spirit of injustice and aggrandize
ment made by our country, in the midst of
amicable négociation. Behold said they, the
conduct of those who are constantly re
proaching Kings ! You saw how those ad
mirers were astounded and hung their heads.
You saw, too, when that illustrious man,
who presides ove, us, adopted his pacific,
moderate, and just course, how they .nee
more lifted up their heads with exultation
and delight beaming in their countenances
And you saw how those minions themselves
were finally compelled to unite in the gener
al praises bestowed upon oùr Government.
Beware how you forfeit this exalted charac
ter. Beware how you give a fatal sanction
in this infant period uf our Republic, scarce
ly yet two score years old, to military insub
ordination."

And mischance, by chance, her name chances to
