THE SOUTH AMERICAN QUESTION.

However much we were interested and
instructed in the perusal of the letter
whilla follows, and however appropriate
ly it might have followed is the suite to
the already published Debate in the House
of Representatives at the late session, we
do not know that we should have copied
it, had we not seen it announced that Mr.
MIDDDI.E ox has declined a re-election to
Congress; because its publication might
have been regarded as an improper inter-
ference between him and those of his
consti uents who differ from him in opin-
ion. That objection is now removed. The
determinati .n of Mr. Middleton to de-
cline a re-election is to be rearetied. His
general intelligence, (not to speak of his
personal character) conferred credit on
the House of which he has been an use-
fuil member : and, if he has not mingled
in Debate, his letter sufficiently shows, if
-such evidence were wanting, that it was
not 1i^om the defect of ability. Indeed,
he would judge most inaccurately of the
talents of L.gislators, who should esti-
mate them by the quantum of time they
respectively occupy ip Debate, or the
frequency with which they take the floor.
Thus nothing can be more incorrect than
the opinions formed of men, by a
perusal of the Debates of Congress.-
There are some citizens, eloquent or si-
lent, whose talents can neither be mista-
kennor overlooked, who enjoy no higher
reputation than they are justly entitled to:
but there are others who obtain charac-
ters, for which a smart speech or two af-
- ford but a slender foundation : and there
. have been, within ourt knowledge, many
gentlemen in C ngress, of distinguished
ability, who, during their term of service,
'have not found it necessary to make a
single speech, buo have no. been, there
fore, the less useful to their country in
their public station. So it is in all Le-
Sgislative bodies : so it is in all societies.
To the communication from Mr. Mid-
dleton to his constituents, which we now
publish, it has been obj cted, that his sen-
timents ought to have been delivered on
the floor of Congress, and through that
channel only transmitted to his constitu-
ents. What is here objected appears to us
commendable. Mr. M. has, in the course
he has pursued, recognized and acted on
the principle of Representative respon-
sibility, one of the first in the Republican
creed. He desired his constituents to
know the grounds on which he had acted
in. his official conduct, on a particular
leading question, and he took the most
direct, frank and manly method of infor-
ming them. It remains for his consti-
tuents and the public to decide what con-
sideration the views which he has presen-
:fLed are entitled to.

COREss HALL, .March 30th, 1818.
o ToA E..ri-r of the Southern Patriot.

SCongress ii..- bad before it this session, that of
Mr; Speaker Clay, 'to appropriates san for an
outtilt and salary for a Minister to be sewn to the
C United Provinces of La Plata, it' the President
Should tilink fit,"has just been decided in the
negative by a vote of 115 to 45 in the House of
' Representatives.
1 have refrained from delivering my senti-
ments on this floor, from an unwillingness to
" prolong a discussion, of which the issue was ne-
ver doubtftd; yet,as the subject is of the highest
importance (the adoption of the proposition in-
Svoliniig-nothing less than WAR in its probable
consequences) I think my constituents may be
fairly entitled to know the grounds of my vote.
' Believing too, that the friends of the measure
will not let it rest here, 1 drink itJimportant that
its inevitable tendency should be understood.
I therefore request the favor of you, to give in-
sertion in your paper to the present c. nmuni-
cation, in which it is only intended, however,
'to touch on one or two of the most prominent
.parts of the subject.
It has been attempted in the course of the
debate, to excite party feeling; to represent
the vote about to.be taken, as one which would
draw a line of demarkation between brethren of
the same principle-divide those who had hith-
erto been united-and, in a word, designate
who were and were not the real friends of frte.
dom. I did not view it in this light. I const-
dered it as a mere question of expediency, in-
volving no point of principle whatever.
I must further premise, that I cannot permit
myself to be governed byfteiing upon this floor.
I consult neither my sympathies nor my antipa-
thies, in matters of policy. The good or ill
success of what is termed the Patriot cause, is
viewed by me in this place, with a single eye to
the interest of my own country. I make no pro-
fessions of general philhnthrcpy, wh le I be-
lieve it to be roy duty to legislate for the United
States of America, and not for the whole human
race.
The maxim, Peace, Commerce and Honest
Friendship with all naiion',, en'angling alliances
with none, may be said to have passed into our.
political creed; and this maxim, I think, sh"itld
be the touchstone by which to try the merits of
the Speaker's proposition.
I shall state the case without qrestioiiing the
independence deJacro of Buen,.s Ayres, assuns
ed by the friends of the propo-i'.ion.
It cannot be doubted, I think, bI. tit thei a-
do.tlon of the proposition by a r.ijrty of the
popular branch of te govern'! .t, would have
been construed by the txec,.t. e, as an instruc-
tion, or, at least, considered Ly him as a strong
Evidence of the public se .:ment in favor of a
recognition ot someone one le contending par-
ties hi Buenos Ayres, as a itnd pendnt go'v-
ernment. The probability is, tl;':r' lii. President
would have felt himselfdivested of all respon-
sibihlity by such an expression of rie sense of
Congress; and that he would have ,)roc;ed'-.d
forthwith to form a treaty of amity itndl eont-
roerec, ?peiahiy admitting (tr at leat implying)
an acknowledgement of independence, either
with the agent of luenos Ayres her<, or by
sending a mist r there as the resolution pro-

IThis would, in itself, ibe an act perfectly inno-
cent, did it not happen that another power
claims a paramount atuto:ity, or snuireme juris-
diction over thie territories and persons of which
this new state "s compost d. Hero then is a di-
lenima, in which we iind orrsilves invoked at
the ve.,. tih'slt step in tins brsinir-s.= Wiruever


we ilionid attempt to give -ri ect to the stipula-
tions of our tre.tly, wh:er ttheviy might he, we
should meet with a third iarty stepping in, and
opposing (for they assert a right to do so) the
fulfilment of its conditiuos, either by the one


party or the other. Heretheltis case, wliree
it would become nicesesary 4,.taktA some mIca
sures in concert with the.other contracting par-
ty, to cause our agreement to ia rtsp, ir.l, to
prevent what all must see would be an inconve.
,ient interference and to enforce a due regard
to our mutual interests. At one anl the same
time then, we should find our- peace with one
power endangered, and the necessity for an elln-
tiangling alliance, with the other, growing out
of tihe c njuncture.
If we refer to the history of our revolution,
for an example of tihe mode and consequences
of recognition, we shall find in the memoirs
of those times, that France, having a great po-
litical object to attain in the diminution of the
British power, and the augmentation of her
own commerce, negotiated with our commis-
sioners, in 1778. a treaty of amity and commerce.
Hut t became at once evident, that,having gone
so far, ainotlier step was nece-sary to give eiil-
ci-ncy and stability to the first. An eventual
treaty of alliance was, therefore, secretly fram-
ed, iI which it was stipulated, that,in case Eng-
land should declare war against France, or
should occasion a war, by an attempt to obstruct
her commerce with us, we should then make
it a common cause, and join our councils and
efforts against the common enemy. The great
aim of this treaty was declared to be, to es-
tablish the liberty, the sovereignty, and inde-
pendence, absolute and 'unlimited, of the Unit-
ed States, as well in matters of government as
ofcommerce;" and this was guaranteed to ius
by France, together with all the countries we
then possessed, or should possess, at the con-
clusion of the war; in return, the U States
guaranteed to France all her possessions in
America.
Throughout the whole of this transaction, it
may be perceived that the plan of France was
systematic and complete. No uncertainty-no
vacillation in her councils was visible. She pur-.
sued steadily what she had adopted as hier true
line of police Hter preparations for thile war,
which was now momently expected, had been
commenced two years antecedent to this peri-
od, and were continued with activity. All this
was wise, in her situation, and with her designs;
for she had in view an object adequate to the
sacrfices it was likely to cost, which had been
already foreseen and calculated.
I'he conduct of the monarch of France, ont
this occasion, was dignified as well as wise ; for
lie announced to the court of St. James, thro'
his ambassador there (13tih March, 1778) in
conciliatory but firm language -" That he had
signed treaty of amity and commerce, with
the United States of America, who were in full
possession of the independence declared by .their
act of 4th Ju.dy, 1776 ." That being deter-
minedto cultivate the good urnd-rstandingsuo
slating between France and Great Britain, by
every means compatible with his dignity, and
the good of hi subjects, he thought it necessa-
ry to make this proceeding known to the court
of London, and to declare, at the same time,
that the contracting parties have paid great at.
tention not to stipulate any exclusive advanta-
ges in favor of tihe French nation; and that the
United States have reserved the liberty of treat
ing with every nation whatever, upon the same
footing of equality andl reciprocity In Imaking
this communication to the court of London, the
king is firmly persuade d, it wuill find new proofs
of his constant t and sinceredisposition tor' peace;
and that his Britannic majesty, animated by the
same sentiments, will equally avoid every thing
that may alter their good harmony ; and that he
will particularly take eflectiual measures to pre.
vent the commerce between his majesty's sub-
jects and tie U.' States from being interrupted,
and to cause all the usages received between
coniunerciul nations, to be, itn this respect, ob-.
served, and all those rules which can be said
to subsist between the .crowns of France and
Great Britain."' It was added, that the ambas-
sador th.ught it superfluous to acquaint the
British minister, that the king, his master, be-
ing determined to protect, efiectually, the law.
ful commerce of his subjects, and to maintain
the dignity of his flag, his majesty hiad, in con-
sequence, taken eventual measures in concert
witli thie United States.
The British monarch immediately recalled
Iris ambassador from Fi .ce, and in his first
speech to parliament, sutus qaent to this notiii-
cation, complained ao the insult she had offered
n mr, in treating with is, and trusts that ihe
shal, not stand responsible f' r the disturbainceof
the tranquiat\ of' Europe, if lie should teel him-
self called upon tu re.ent so unprovoked rand so
unruj t alt ggfessiosn, oil thie honor of his crown
subversive of tire laws of nations, and
injuriou s to the rights of ever' sovereign power
rL Europe The two houses of parlhart:nit, in
their answers to tire speech, made a tender of
their lives and fortunes to support the war.
From this moment, France considered the
war as begun. She isued orders to her armed
vessels to return hiostilities,b gave every encou-
.-agemennt no privateers, wuicin, until that pe-
riod,liad not been suffered openly in her ports.*
It is not thie purpose of tins sta ement to
frame any justilicaUon for either of the parties
to the dispute. It mnay, perhaps, be contended
with some plausibilihty, tinal we are too deeply
interested in tie consequences resulting from
these transactions to form a judgment altoge-
ther impartial. Iti is intended merely to shrew,
that ,ar fnllorwed clo.'e upon tei heels of recerg'ni-
tioni, .inoughi made with the st longest possiblee
professions of pacific objects anid nmcniiuos.
fhlus was the principal act, allege, by Eng.
land, as a justifiable cause of war, according to
the received maxims of international law.
If Spain, wou will not want for prompters,
should pursue similar conduct towards us, inn
the event of our recognizing any of her re-
volted colonies, we must see that the act of re-
cognition, pretended to be so innocent in itself t
would be tantamount to a total abandonrinent of
our peaceful policy. By such an act we m gint
find outiselves engaged unawares in tihei unpro-
fitable business of war, without any adequaqite
object, aid even contrary to our ciet-;r tiitt'e-ts;
for it appears to be admitted, oy all sound

But the advocates of the Speaker's motion
apprehending, pcrhaps,that it might be perceiv-
ed there would be some probable risk in th,
course recommended by them, took a world of
pains to point out the great advmttofges to be de
rived to us from the independence of the Span.
ith colonies in a commercial view. Upon this
point, I must acknowledge my ircredul.ty, erar
least my doubts, as statements ofa very opposite
tenor appear equally plausiblee* and in an ag-
ricultural point of view, I do perceive much rea
son to apprehend that considerable competitions
will arise between tihe two continents in many
of their staple productions. The pursuits of'
the inhabitants of the Southern Continent are
in a great degree agricultural, and in many in-
stances they raise, or may raise, most of the ar-
tic rs produced by our soil; for example, they
raise cotton and tobacco of an excellent quality;
together with many other most precious raw
materials which might be enumerated, the cul-
tivation of which is at present confined to parti-
cular districts, b. the jealous policy of the mnith
er country. It is probable that the production
of these staples will be multiplied in an amazing
degree, when the industry of the colonies shall
be left free, and-their commerce, with the rest
of thie world unfettered. This unbounded in-
crease, by glutting the markets, may be highly
prejudicial to this branch of our national wealth.
But, we are asked, is the cause of Liberty-
of Republicanism-to be betrayed firm a fear
of hazarding the paltry interests of ci mmrce ?
Froin an apprehension of' creating some petty
competition with our agricultural products ?
To this enquiry, 1 answer, that it is by no
means clear to my perception, that the cause of'
liberty) is at all involved in the question before
us. I fear it is not very probable that the South
Americans will acquire civil liberty,even should
they accomplish their independence. For our-
selves we are already in the full enjoyment of
freedom. 1 feel assured that we shall continue
so, although no change should be made in the
condition of our southern namesakes. We most
heartily wish them well, in common with the
rest of mankind, but it is surely not incumbent
upon us to risk any thing from motives of simple
benevolence.
If indeed it could be made evident to my un-
derstainding, that the security of our republican
freedom has any connection with the success
of the insurgents of the southern continent, 1
should be ready to afford them any and every
aid within our competency-money-troops-
ships. 1 should move immediately to rescind
,he resolution of Congress for adjournment at
an early day. I shou d be for taking into con-
sideration the ways and means-Ithe taxes ne-
cessary to be imposed with a view to meet tihe
exigencies which would assuredly ari.s out of
thie hostile course we must enter upon to afford
them the assistance necessary to their success.
But, far different are my impressions of this
matter. I see but little reason to form saniguite
expectations of the bforinatio. of free states npoin
the southern continent. When we enquire into
the late and present troubles in those countries,
we hear of military despotisms being establish-
ed wherever the sway of the revolutionists has
prevailed. It s in vain we seek there for signs
auspicious to the cause of ratiofrial freedom.
Ignorance and superctitit n are not the ftunda-
trons whereon tie temple of Liberty can be
erected, or can stan'i .ecure. Nor could our
republican confedera ion derive any content
ance or support, if it were wanted, from com-
munities so dtfei eatly organized tro our own.
The best security for the perpetuity ot oar
free institutions wil be found in the attachment
of our own people to them; that attachment is
founded on the blessings they besow; those
blessings flow mainly from their peaceful cOia-
rncter anid iihirenice ; peace, then, is thle grand
desideratum to secure the affections of our peo-
ple to the r forms of government, at tile saune
time that it tends to cmu.cdiate the good Nwishes,
and quiet the fears of foreign powers.
Betieving, then, that we hase no adequate
motive to induce us to take any part in the cun-
flict between Spain i;d her colon es, I am dis-
posed to preserve the most impartial neut:riity.
At all events, I deem it safest, at present, to
leave this question of recognition with those
branc:ies or the government to which the con-
stitution has confided the treaty-making power.
The president must be the best judge, from
having a view of the whole grouind, of the time
and ian:ner, of the expediency or inexpediien
cy, ot instituting foreign missions; whiicn lie ca.n
do (ai;td does on orhlinary occasions) by and with
the advice and c.msent .f the Senate. lie
might indeed, anid very probably rwouhil, deem
it to be proper, (if not a duty incumbent upon
him) when about to adopt a measure so fraught
with important, consequences, as a recogni-
tion of the indepe. dence of a portion of thlie pos-
sessions ot a foreign state, with w horn% we are at
peace, to ascertain the sense of the pr,'ple of tile
United Statts, by a'fiill and fair exposition, ad.
dressed to their represe natives in Congress, of
the risks to be incurred, with an enquiry
whether they are prepared to make the sacri-
fices, and to persevere in the course of mea-
sures which would be necessir) to maintain tihe
national honor. A step or this nattiie must al-
ways bu equivalent to a qutestin of 0eace or
war, left to the deternniat on of the adverse
party. It is, therefore, diilicul, to bel:cv, Ihat
a prudent administration wolud evtr venture
upon it, without having first submitted it fully
aitd tairly to tile 1 stature, which is alone comn-
potent to declare ...r. But tile initiative of the
question s:iould, in my opinion, ala a) s rtst with
the Executive branch of the government
Such art the general views which induced
me to dissent from he Speaker's proposition.

pomits, yet there are many sound arguments
which may be urged aigaiist a |ireuniatuire rtcog.

THE1 POMP OF WAR.

The reader may form some idea of
the Pomp of War' in India, and the
amount ot what are Galled the 'followers
of the army' by the following extract of a
letter from a British officer, written on
the Jumna, Oct. 27, 1817.-Col. Cent.
The ,vlole of the army now on the
field, consists of 10 divisions, each of
about 10,0u0 men. We arc advancing
from the three Presidencies toward the
the same point, with the finest army ever
perhaps heard' of in India. The Gover-
nor-General is with our division, which
is about I3,C00o strong,-with 60 pieces of
cannon. The camp followers of this di-
vision alone amount to 67,000. For the
carriage of the baggage of our regime nt,
we have 40 elep'.ants and 400 camels ;
every ieephant tias two keepers, and
every two camnie one. Of us there are
37 oulice'rs present, among whom there
are 810 servautt ; every horse in the re-
giment has tino attendants, one as a
groom the other to provide grass ; these
alone anotiit to 1400, besides 120 for the
mess, and 900 for the Bazar to supply the
provisions ; and alli, for our regiment
alone, about 3,500 followers, besides their
wives, children, &c.
1' The Marquis of HASTINGS travels
in a most princely style ;, he has 150
elephants, and 400 camels, besides state
elephants splendidly accoutred, having
superb solid silver howlers or castles on
their backs. There are now actually 36
Rajahs and Independent Chieftains, of
various ranks, on their way to pay their
respects to the Marquis, Some of them
indeed are already in camp. The Gov-

deal of importance, and which will be
handsomely paid for: I am charged to

Louis. The deuce five hundred Louis
should not be sent a begging. said Figaro
to himself, and I should be a great fool
to turn so valuable a god-send from me
to some brother author ; in a wora, he
offered himself. The ambassador was
in raptures ; he had not the most remo e
idea that M. Esmenard had any thing to
do with the composition of the memo-
rial delivered to the states of Holland;
and Esmenard was much too wise to
boast of it All was, however, settled,
and behold Figaro at work. The whole
was soon completed, and, to give him
his due meed of praise, he acquitted him-
self conscientiously, and gave the Dutch
quite enough for their money. The an-
swer proved greatly superior to his first
memorial. The very next day, the am-
bassador delivered it to the minister for
exterior relations, who was quite asto-
nished at the strong h of the reasoning
which were alleged in opposition to his
master's views; at the address with which
they were bro't forward, S at the elegance
of style which pervaded the whole of this
diplomatic document. The emperor,
was no less loud in his expressions of sur-
prize ; everyone admitted into the em-
peror's council talked of it; en different
writers were thought of, but nobody
could guess the real author. It was only
about three years after that, in a moment
of frolic, which banished reserve-Figa-
ro acknowledged this trifling piece of
reguery to his master."

The commander of the United States' reve-

SAT~.URDAY JUTLY Lt.


A correspondent informs us that BELLE
PotiN, the site recently occupied as a
garrison, on the A kansus river, is situ-
ated in north latitude S.' 23' 12", at tht
junction of Porto river, four hundred and
sixty miles from the mouth of the Ar-
kansas, pursuing its meanders, and aboul
twenty miles above the Osage boundary
line.
The situation selected for the garrison
is secure and healthy, and affords acom-r
plete command cf the rivers above men-
tioned. Its elevation is about thirty-five
feet above the water, from which it is
accessible by an easy ascent. The point
is supported upon a basis of stratalied
stone, well adapted for building, and is
surrounded by wood land affording an a-
bundance of excellent timber.
The soil of the adjacent country is ex-
uberant, producing corn, cotton, &c. in
great perfection.

At alate meeting of the Virginia Board
of Public Works, held at Richmond,
GEORGE NEWTON, of Norfolk, was elect-
ed a member, vice L. W. Tazewell, re-
signed ; and TnoMIAs MOORE, of Mary-

vice L. Baldwin, resigned, until the next
annual meeting. The following resolu-
tion was then adopted:
Resoh-ed, That the Engineer of the Board of
Public Works do forthwith, under the direction of
the ex-officio members of the Board, survey ind
examine James River and its branches, in pursu-
ance of the r.:'..h.t*l ,,t' the General Assembly ot

on (with detailed statements of the probable ex-
pense of any work which he may recoinmend) to
the next annual meeting of the Board.
This resolution has in view a survey
for the purpose of ascertaining the best
nieans of improving the navigation" of
this river, and especially of ascertaining
the practicability and expense of procur-
ing a navigation of said waters, or any part
of them, for vessels drawing three feet
water."

By a vote of the Legislature of Rhode
Island, at its late session, much honor is

stitute an entire record of the brilliant a-
chievements of CommodorePerry,during

of victory, as in the victory which crown-
ed his efforts on Lake Erie, and to depo.

The inhabitants of Halifax have pre-
sented petitions to the British govern-
ment, praying that the citizens of the
United States may be prevented from us-

stating that the American fishermen have
pushed into the streights which divide
Nova Scotia from Cape Breton, which
are wholly within the British territory,
and have nearly exclusively appropriat-

ground on the Labrador coast.

"FROM ST. AUGUSTINE.

OHARLESTON, JULY 4.
Captain Bateson, of the sloop Frolic,
who arrived here yesterday morning, left
St. Augustine on Thursday. He informs
us, that a Spanish corvette of 26 guns,
and two brigs of eighteen guns each,
arrived off that place on Sunday last, in
a short passage fi' ,m Havana, having un-
der convoy the schooners Barbarita and
Santa Rosa. loaded with munitions of war,
clothing, provision,, and about 20,000 dol-
lars in doublonos, for the use and pay of
the soldiers at that post. The vessels of
war sailed again on Moiday and Tuesday,
the sch'rs were discharging when capt. B.
sailed. No certain information had been
received at St. Augustine of the fall of
Pensacola. A large body of Indians, with
their women and children, were encamp-
ed within al:-ut 4 miles of St. Au ustine,
and a number of them daily visited the
town. The garrison wi cli amounts to
about 400,were much elated by this time-
ly supply of clothing. provisions and mno-
ney, which they had been looking for.

LONDON, MAY 21.
A private letter [romni Paris states, that
an account had been received thee ola
violent afl'ray at Cambray, between some
)'French and English officers. It is stated
to have arisen in a coffee house, where
one of the English ollfficers happened to
deliver too ifree an opinion on the cam-
paign of 1315, and the battle of Waterloo.
This led to the drawing ofsabres ; a iu-
niult in consequence took place in the
street; and report adds that some lives
were lost before the disturbance was quel-
led.
The king of Naples and his brother
Charles IV. of Spain went lately to Pom-

works lately discovered, they went in a
carriage through the streets of the city,
where the noise of wheels had not been
heard for more than 1,700 years.

object was pliider, commenced the at-
tack, as we are inforined, by knocking
down and beating the Indians, a few of
whom resisted, and in the contest one
soldier was dangerously wounded, and a
few slightly, with their knives-and some
of the Indians were severely wounded,
but not dangerously. The soldiers, as
we learn, succeeded in taking from them
almost the whole of their trading articles.
We learn that the soldiers engaged in
the outrage upon the Indians on the 21st
have been identified, and that a court
martial is now sitting to try them, and
award the punishment merited by their
insoldier-like criminal conduct.-The
atffair for which they are about to suffer
will no doubt lead to the adoption of such
rigorous and salutary camp regulations,
as will in future prevent a repetition of
similar disgracefiul transactions.

From i late Eniih Paper.
ANI'rqu riEs-About three weeks
ago, some men in the employ of sir WV.
Hicks, bart. while digging up the roots of
an old ash tree, which they were employ-
ed to fell, at Cooper's Hill, about 4 miles
from Gloucester, came to a large stone
that excited their curiosity. On remov-
ing it, they discovered a flight of steps
leading to an apartment, in the centre of
which was a cistern ;bout a yard square;
in clearing the room, the sculls of a buf-
falo and a bullock, with horns complete,
and the remains of a fire place, with a
quantity of wood ashes, were likewise
found. Last week four more apartments
were discovered, in one of which is a ve-
ry curious tesselated pavement (the tes-
seroe are tubes of about half an inch ;)
also the remains of several urns and
figured tiles of Roman pottery. The
walls of one of the apartments, and also
the passages, are painted in fresco, with
alternate stripes of purple, yellow, and
scarlet, all of which are beautifully shad
ed, andcuriously ornamented with scrolls
and a border. These interesting remains
of antiquity have probably existed for
upwards of seventeen centuries. The
men are still at work, and new discoveries
are making daily.
