great ana 1 splendid success With 

wbiclitt has pleased Divine ProviiUi.ee 
to blc3S his Majesty's arms, and those 
of his allies in the course of the present 
campaign, has bcwi productive of tha 
mostimpartantcaiisequeuces to Europe. 
In Spain the glorious and decisive vic- 
tory, obtained near Vutoria, his been 
followed by the advance of the allied 
forces to the Pyrcnnees, by the- repulse 
of the enemy in eVe.-y atlernpilo regain. 
the ground he hid been compelled to 
abandon, by the reduction of the fortress 
of St. Sebastians, and finally the esiab 
iisliment of the allied ai n»/ on tr.e frut:- 
tier of France. 

In this series of brilliant operations 
you will haveobferved, with the highest 
satisfaction, the coiusunutc skill and abi- 
, lily of the greatxanioouudur Field Mar- 
shal WeHlugtODp and the stcadi -cs, and 
unconquerable spirit which have been 
equally displayed by tlje troops of the 
Ihreo nations united uodcr bis cotnmand. 
The termination of the Armistice in 
the North of Europe, and the declara- 
tion of war by the Emperor of Austria 
* against Eranee, have ben mdat happily 
accompanied by a system of cordial 
union and concert amongst the allied 
powers. 

The effects of this union hav* even 
■surpassed those expectation:., which n 
.Was calculated to excite. 

By the signal victories obtained over 
the French armies in Silesia, a. id Colin

These successes have been fallowed 
^ by a course of operations, combined with 
so much judgment, and executed with 
jso much consummate prudence., vigour, 
aod ability, as to have led in their result,, 
not only to the discomfiture uf all liios"-- 
projects which the ruler of France had 
so presumptuously announced on tlic 
renewal of the contest, bui to dm cap- 
ture and destruction of Ihe greater part 
of tha army under his immediate com- 
mand- 

The annals of, Europe afforded no ex- 
ample of victories ro^re splendid and de- 
cisive than those which have been re- 
cently acnicved in Saxony. 

Whilst Ufe perseverance and gallant- 
ry displayed by the allied forces .if every 
.dcscripliouengagedinlhia conflict, have 
exacted to the highest pitch of glory 
UeiV military character, you will, 1 am 
,)ersuu<Ud, agree with me in rendering 
full tribute of applause to those saver 
rei-ns and princes, who in the sacred 
cause of national independence, have so 
eminently distinguished tnemselye* a. 
leaders of the armies 01 their respective 
nations. 

With aoch a prospect before you, I 
am satisfied that I may rely with the 
greatest confidence on your disposition 
to enable me to afford the necessary as- 
sistance in support of a system of alli- 
ance, .j which originating chiefly in the 
i magnanimous and distinguished views 
of the Emperor of Russia, and followed 
.upas it has been wilh corresponding en- 
ergy by the other allied powers, h as pro- 
duced a change the most, momentous in 
, the affairs of the continent. 

I shall direct copies of thcseveial con- 
ventions which I have concluded wilh the 
northern powers, to be laid before you, 
as soon as the ratification* of them shall 
have been duly exchanged. 

I have further to acquaint you, that I 
have concluded a treaty of alliance and 
conceit with the Emperor of Austria, 
«nd that Hie powerful leaguo already 
formed, Ins received .in important addi- 
lion of fp)*e« by the decl.uuL.ion of Bava- 
ria again*! France. 

I mn confident you Will view with

ancient oonnectjon with flic Austrian go.

The public spirit and national enthu- 
siasm which have successively accom 
plished the deliverance of the kingdoms 
of Spain and Pofiugal, and of the Rus- 
sian empire, now equally animate the 
Qernaan people ; and we may justly en-, 
tertain.the fullest confidence that ihe 
same perseverance on their part will 
ultimately lead to the same gluiioijs 
result. 

I cannot but deplore most deeply the 
continuance pf this extended mode oT 
warfare and of all those miseries which 
ihe insatiable ambition uf the Ruler of 
France has so lung inflicted upon 
Europe. 

No disposition to require from France 
sacrifices of any description intonbiwt- 
cnt with her honor or just pretensions 
as a nation will ever be on my' part, or 
on lbr!t of his Majesty s allies aji obsta- 
cle to Peace. 

The restoration of that greatblessmg 
upon principles of justice and «qaaltty 
has never ceased to be my impious wish; 
but I am fully convinced iwut it can only 
be obtained by a continuance of those 
efforts which has already delivered so 
Urge a part of Europe from the power 
of the enemy. 

To the firmness and perseverance of 
this country, ibeae advantages may in a 
gicat degree be ascribed. Let this con- 
lidejrailon animate us to now exertions, 
■md wc shall thus, I trust, be enabled 
to bring tins long and arduous contest

the cavalry, and the fefffcrettt rcsencs 
was made on the open gi'ound ^eiWbeii 
the Villages. It was nearly mid-day 
before tiic troops, were at their. station's. : 

The enemy ,soon after the fust i.n.a 
gave up the advanced viIIj, b, aj)d je- 
tired borne distance, but tenaciouuly 
held the woody ground on tlm right, and 
tho' villages of Gros and Klein" Wcrtc- 
rits, as also the villages of Mocke'rn and 
Mokan on their lefi. At Mockein a 
most bloody contest ensued ; it was ta4 
ken, and retaken by the corps of Yorcl^ 
five limes; the musqtietry fire was inos| 
galling, und this was the hottest part of 
the field ; many of tl,c supeiior ollicers 
were either killed or woundod ; at length 
the victorious Silesiana c=,' ried all befoi<| 
them, and drove the enemy beyond the 
P.irtha, In the plain there were many 
brilliant charges of cavalry. The Jlrau- 
deoburk regiment of hussars di'nin,;o;sh 
ed iiscll iu u particular niaiiner, ami -op- 
ported hy infantry, charged a battery of 
eighl pieces, which they carried. 

The enemy made an obstinate resis- 
tance also on their right, in ihe villages 
of Great and Little Wertcrilz, and II- 
chausen, and in the woody ground around 
them ; and when they lound wo had for- 
ced then- kit, they oruught an additional 
number oi troops on Count Lun^eron, 
who was chiefly engaged with Marshal 
Ney'a corps, which arrived Irom the 
neighborhood ol Duhcn. However, the 
Russians equally wiih their brave allies 
in arms, |n«de the .most gallant efforts, 
and they were fully successful— night 
omy put an end to the action. The.Itus- 
siau cavalry acted in a very brilliant man- 
ner. Gen. Slop's cavalry took a batte- 
ry of thirteen gons, and the Cossacks ol 
Gen. Eruanual, fivfc. The enemy drew 
off'towards Slegliilz and Plosen, and 
passed the Pariha river. Gen. bachetl's 
corps, which supported Gen. Langeron, 
very much distinguished itself in the 
presence of llonaparte, who, it seems, 
according to the informations of the 
prisoners, arrived from ihe other part of 
his army ul 5 o'clock in the altcrnoon. 

The corps of Gen. D'Yorck, which so 
conspicuously distinguished itself, had 
many ol its most gallant leaders killed 
or wyuuded ; among the latter arc Co- 
lonels UcinmUz, Kui?.!er,Bouch, Miller, 
Lowi-mlial, LaUielz.,; iM.ijm s. Seohn and 
Bismarck. The inomeniaiy loss of these

Ilomberg, Generals [VJertfyeWt and Witt- 
geiistetii, were also tu lake poit at this| 
station. 

Gen. Barclay de Telly in command' 
all t|ie columr.s or. tlit. right bank. of the 
Pleisae, Gen.^. Wuty.cost'-in, Kleisi., 
and RleUiaU, were to advance Irom 
their respective positions on Leipsicj 
Ihe Rusiiao guatils funning their re- 
serve. Gen. Coltoredg advanced from 
Borne, as reserve to Gen. Kleinau,, 
The retreat of these corps was to be on 
Cherntita : Gens. Wittgenstein, J&'ieist, 
and Klemau's on Allingberg and Penig. 

The Army of Gen. Benningsen, Irom 
Coldlnz,. was lo push on Grinuna and 
Wurizoi). — The corps of Count Bubna 
had been relieved before Leipsic by 
Gen. Tolstoy. 

A very heavy firing continued all the 
day of the lGUi from Ihe grand army. 
A report an ivctl late at nighl to Gen. 
Jllucher, tjiat JlunapJtte had attacked 
in person the .whole line of the allies, 
and forming his e.ivalry m the centre, 
succeeded in making an opening in the 
combined army before all its cavalry 
could come Up ; he was however, not 
able to prunt by il : as it appears he re- 
tired in the evening, and the allies oc- 
cupied their position as b^icre the 
attack. 

Of the details of the ubove I am as 
yet wholly Cguaiuant, 

On the 17ih all were ready to renew 
the attack on this side. The Piincc 
Royal, who had his 11. Q. at Lansberg, 
and his army behind it marched at two 
o'clock in the morning, and arrived at 
Brittenfield, with Gen. Winzmgerode's 
and Gen. Billow's corps towards mid- 
day on Gwn. Bulow's left. Gen. Win- 
zingerode's cavalry and artillery had 
nioved forward in the night, near tho 
[■eights ol Eaucha. 

No cannonading being heard on this 
side of the grand army (though Gen. 
Blucher's corps was underarms,) and 
as it was also understood Gen. Bcnniug- 
scn couid nut arrive uulil this day at 
Grimma, and part of the Prince Royal's 
army being still in the rear, it was 
deemed expedient to wait ml the fol- 
lowing day to renew the general attack. 
The enemy shewed himself in great 
force in a £uod position, on the left of 
die l'aitha, on u ridge of some extent, 
which runs parallel to the river. There 
was some cannonading in the morning, 
end the enemy mauo demonstration ; and 
ine ft US ear a ol Mcchlenberg charged 
Ins advance parties into itlfl suburbs of 
Eeipsic , and ink three can nun and 
some prisoners ^t the hulans of the 
guards,

It will be ply cndcaior to gke you as 
cinct and clear account us 1 no able, 



ations determined upon by ihe grail (J 
army ; and secondly, to describe what 
immediately came ui'dcr my own qbsei* 
valions, namely, the 'movements of tho 
Prince Royal'and Gen. Blucher. 

My despathes, up to the 17th, havo 
detailed the position of tiiu allied ar- 
mies up 10 that date. It being announced 
by Prince Scbwarizenburg that it was 
the Intention ol their Majesties, Ihe al- 
lied sovereigns, to renew the attack on 
the lath, and the armies of the North 
and Silesia being directed to co-iperate, 
the following general disposition V?as 
made. 

I must here observe, thai the attack 
on the 16th by the urand at my, occur- 
red in the neighborhood of Leiheit 
Wolkovitz- The country being pai- 
ticulai'ly adapted for cavalry, a very 
sanguinary and hard combat on sue if 
with this army, and an artillery exceed- 
ing in number six hundred pieces, be- 
tween the opposed armies. Tht solita- 
ry buildings, which the enemy had oc- 
cupied with several baitalions of infant- 
ry, and which formed nearly the centre 
of the enemy's pos'tioo, were attacked 
by the Russian Infinity and aflce us- 
veral repulses, carried .nth amazing 
carnage. 

The whole of the enemy's cavalry, 
under Mil rat, were then brought for- 
ward, they made a very despcrale push 
at the centre of the- allied position, 
which for a short peiiod they succeed- 
ed in forcing. 

To oppose this powerful cuvalry, s;x 
regiments of Ansytah cuirassiers charg- 
ed in columns. Nblhliig could surpass 
either the skill or the desperate bravery 
of this movement ; they overthrew ail 
before them ; destroying I am told, 
whole regiments, and returned to their 
ground with many prisoners, having 
ieft TOO dragoons within the enemy's 
line. 

Many officers were killed and WoUtjd 
ed. Gen. Latour Maubourg, who com- 
manded the enemy's iv.v.dry under Mu- 
ral, lost bis leg- Both itcmiea 1 > m.uncd 
nearly on the ground on which the cor.- 
test commenced. 

While tin grand army vlai to com- 
mence their* attack on the morning of 
Ihe ISlh, from the different points ol as- 
sembly, on ihe principal villages situated 
on the great, roads leading id Ltipsit, 
the armies of the North und Sih-sia were 
to atiack from tho line of the S..al, .m.; 
upon the en erne's position &U»!fg H>C 
Pariha river. Gen. lijtflSKer gave ir> 
the Prince Ruyftl«i Sweden 30,p00 ■ ■■ ,■ 
infan iy, baVflfrji and efiillury, ol his a;-

-.. Wuchcr was to retain hi» position 
'fore Lcipsic, and use hi* inmost if- 
l • ts to gain possession of the place. 

In the event of the w hole of the ene 
wy'j forces being curried against cither 
of the armies, they were reciprocally 
to support each other and concert fur- 
ther movements : that patt of the en- 
emy's fuice, which for some time had 
been opposed to the Prince Royal of 
Sweden, and Gen. Bluchcr, lud taken 
np a vcy good position upon the loft 
bank of the I'artha, having its right at 
the strong point of Fauchu, and its Kit 
lowaid* I.cipsic. 

To lorcc the enemy's right and obtain 
possession of the height* of I'.iuch... 
was the first operation of the Prince 
R.yal's-army. The corps of Russians 
under Gener.il Winzingeiodc, und the 
Prussians under Gen. Bulow, were des- 
tined for thii purpose, and' the Swedish 
army wore directed to force the passage 
of the liver at I'lausen und Mockau. 

The pUAdgc was effected without 
much oopwition. — Gen. \V in zin (erode 
took about 3000 prisoners at Fautlw, 
und some guns. 

Gen. tJiiut.tr put his army in mc 
t'lO'i as soon us he fouud the grand army- 
engaged very hotly io the neighborhood 
of the villages of Sloiliutz and Probes- 
iln-y la, and the infantry of the Pi nice 
Royal's army had not sufficient time to 
make their fkmk roovcmeiilji^fore the 
enemy's infantry hud abandoned the line 
of the river, and retired over that plain, 
in line and crlumn, towards Lcipsic, oc- 
cupying Somerfult, Faunsdorff, and 
Schoplcldt, in strength} protecting tlicir 
retreat. 

A veiy heavy cannonade and aomc 
brilliant performances of Gun, Winzin- 
gerodcA cavalry, marked chiefly here 
the events of Nic day, except towards 
the close, when Gen. Lnngernn, who 
had crossed the rivei , attacked the vil- 
lage of SchonK-ldt, met with considera- 
ble resistance, and at ri>t>t was not able 
to force his way. lie however took it, 
but was driven back, when the most pos- 
itive u niseis were trui him by Gen. UIu 
eher, to reocupy it at the point of the 
bayonet ; which he accomplished before 
duik- Some Prussian battalions of Gen. 
Bulow'* corps were warmly engaged, 
also at Paunsdorff, and the enemy were 
feiirmg from it, when the P. R. directed 
the rocket brigade under Capt. Bougc, 
to form on the left of a Prussian battery 
and open upon the columns retiring. 
Congrcve's formidable weapon had 
scarce accomplished the point of paraliz- 
ing a solid square of infantry, which 
after one fire delivered themselves up, 
(as if panic struck), when that jalUat 
and deserving officer, Capt. Bougc, alike 
an ornament to his profession, and a loss 
to hi3 friend* and country, received a 
shot in the head, which deprived the ar- 
my of In? services. Lt.Strangwayi.whn 
edcccdcd in the command of the Bri- 
gade, received the Prince Royal's tkanks 
for the services they rendered. 

During the action twenty-two guns of 
■Sa«on aiLiUery, joined us from the ene ■ 
my, ami two Westphalian regiments of 
bOuari and two battalions of Saxons ; 
the former were opportunely made use 
ol in the instant against the enemy, as 
our artillery and ammunition were not 
all forward ; and the Pince Royal ad- 
dressed the Utter by an offer, that he 
would head them immediately against 
the enemy, which liny, to a mar., 
accepted. 

The communication being now es- 
tablished belwen the grand attacks and 
thai of these two aimit-s, the Grand 
Duke Cuustanline, Gens. Piatoff, Mi 
iaradovTtch,and other officers of distinc 
tion, joined the Prince Royal, Communi- 
cating the events carrying on iu that 
direction. 

It seems the most desperate resist- 
ance was made by the enemy at Probo. 
tiiedc, Stellctiu, and Conr.evkz, but the 
differcntcolumnsbearing on these points 
as detailed In my former despatch, final- 
ly e arried every thing before them. Gen. 
Bkumingsen taking the village upon the 
right of the Reuaichuvc, having been 
joined hy Gen. Bubna, from Dresden, 
Gen. Tolstoy having come up and re 
lievcd the former in the blockade of 
thai city, and Gen. Guilay manoeuvring 
with twenty five thousand Austrian! up; 
onttw left bank of the Elster. Gen. 
Thielman and Prince Maurice Lichten- 
stein's corps moved upon the same riv- 
er ; and the result of the day was, that 
ihc enemy lost above forty thousand 
men in killed, wounded and priaonua, 
sixty-five piece* of artillery, and seven- 
teen battaliins uf German infantry, with 
nil their Staff and Generals, which 
cBme over m matse during the action. 
The armies remained upon the ground 
which thty hud so bravely conquered, 

th.a night. The Prince Royal had his 

bivouac at Paunsdarth ; Gen- Bluchci 
remained ai WUleritx, and the Empe- 
ror's and King's »\ Roda. 

About 1I16 close of the day, it was

This morning the town of Leipsic 
was aliackedand carried aftera short re- 
sistance, by the armies of General Blu- 
cher, the Piince Royal, and General 
Bennbijnen, and the grand army. 
Marshal Marmontand Macdonald com- 
manded in the town ; these, with mar- 
shal Augercau and Victor narrowly es- 
caped, with a '-in.il escort. 

Tneir Majesties the Emperor 1 of 
Ru ■ ■ :, and the Kmg of Prussia, and 
the Grown Prince of Sweden, each 
leading their respective troops, entend 
the town at different points, and met in 
the Great Square. The acclammations 
and rejoicings of the people are not to 
be described. 

The multiplicity of brilliant achicv- 
ments, the impossibility of doijii* justice 
to the firmness that has been displayed, 
the boldness of the conception of the 
Commander in Chief, Field Marshal the 
Pi nice Schwartzenbcrg, and of the oth- 
er experienced leaders, together with 
(ho shortness of the time allowed me 
lor nviking up this despatch, will plead, 
I hope, a sufficient excuse for my not 
sending a more accurate or perfect de- 
tail, which I hope however, to do hire- 
after. 

I send this dispatch by my aid de- 
camp, Mr. James, who has been distin- 
guished for his re r vices, since he has 
been with this army ; he has al •"•■• been 
with me in all tnc late events and will 
be able to give your lordship all further 
particulars, i have the honor, Sec.

In appreciating the acctp'ed proposal of

fail to keepin mind that vigorous pit paration* 
for carrying on the war Can in no renpect im-

a rtl iK itiuii of such prepar-nions, should the 
wishes of the United Stsies for a speedy res-

pointed, would necessarily have the most in- 
jji k-us con^rquences. «,

Foreign Offu*-, Nov. i, ItitS. 
Sir — I have the honor to enclose to yeti for 
the information of the President of the Uoi- 
ted States, a copy of a note which bis Bri- 
tannic Majesty's imb^ssador at the Court of 
St. Petersburg was directed to present 10 ibt 
Russian Government, as soon as bis Royal 
riighness the Prince Regent was informed 
that Plenipotentiaries had been nominatttl 
on ihe pirt of the American governmen 
for the purpose of negociating for the peaci 
with Great Hnum under ihe mediation ol 
His Imperial Majesty. 

His Lordship having bv the last Courier 
from the Imperial Head Qjarters acquaint- 
ed me that the American CommisMnneis 
now ,u St. Petersburg have intimated, In re- 
ply to this overture, that ihey bad no ob- 
jections to a negociiiioii at Linden, anc' 
were equally desirou-, as the British Gov- 
ernment had declared itsell to be, that this 
'>mine&s should not be mixed with the affotrs 
of the continent ot Europe, but that their 
pr.wt.rs were limited to negociate under the 
mediation of Russia. 

Under these circum stances, and in order 
to avoid an unnecessary continuance of the 
calamities of war, ihe Prince Regent com- 
mands me to transmit b> a fl.g of truce, to 
the American port nearest to the seat of 
government, the efficial note above mention- 
ed, in order ihat the President, if be should 
fed disposed lo enter upon a direct ne«oci 
aiion for the restoration ot peace between 
the two stales, may give bis directions 
accordingly- 

In milking this communication, lean as- 
sure you lhat the British government is wil- 
ling to enter mm discussion with the govern 
meat of America for ihe eoncilinory adjusi- 
mtnt of the differences subsisting h t «ween 
the two Mates, with an earnest desire on 
• hnrpfttHo bring them to * fcnroraMei*. 
sue, upon principles of perfect reciprocity 
not inconsistent wih the established max- 
ims of public law, and w'nh the maritime 
right* of the British empire- 

The Admiral commanding the British 
squadrun on the American station, will be 
diitcted to give the necessary pronction 10 
any ncisons proceeding to Europe, on the 
part of the government of the United Sates 
In furtherance of this overture; or should 
the American government have occasion 10 
forward orders 10 their commission at Si. 
Petersburg, to give the requisite facilities, 
by cartel or otherwise, to me tv^nsinission

Deuatinieol o J" State, Jaimnry 5, 16IS. 
My Lonl — I h»ve had the honor jo re- 
r»ive by a n .g of iruce your Lordship's let 
*' r of the » a Nov. Inst, and a copy of a 
note which his Britannic Majesty's amhas- 
sador si the court of St. Peter\burg present- 
ed io the Russian government on the first ef 
September preceding. 

By this communication it appears that his 
rnyai highntss the Prince Rciecnt rejected 
he mediation offered by his Imperi-I Ma- 
>»siy lo prninolt peace between the United 
States at GoUenburgh or London, and that 
he had. requested the interposition of the 
good ' ffices of t he Emperor in favor of such 
an arrangement. 

Having laid your Lordship's comtuuni 
tion before Ihc President, I am in«ru led to 
slate, for the information of his Royal H gb- 
uess tne Prince Re b rt.t, that the Presideot 
hassetn with Hcgrft ibis new obstacle to 
ihe commencement ot a negotiation for the 
>ceommod.tion of ditTeMneei between "he 
United Slates and Great Britain. As ihi- 
Emperor of Russia was distinguished for 
his rectitude and impartially, and wjs 
moreover engaged in a war, as an ally of 
England, wbereby*~it was his interest to 
piomote peace oetween the United States 
and Great Britain, the President ceuld not 
doubt that his Royal Highness tt e prion 
Rtgenl would accept the mediation, whicl 
h»s Imperial Majesty bad eff^red to them 
It was the confidence with which Ih'eth 
ch trader of the Emperor inspired the Pits 
idenl, that induced Ititn. disrfgatding con- 
sideration*, which a more CMiioui polirj 
mi(,b« have sugJWsted, to acct.pt the over- 
ture with promp'itude, -nJ 10 send minie- 
iers to St. Pet«ril)Ur|{h, to take sdvan »gt 
of it. It would have been s try saiisFa.Ctoty 
to the President, If his Royal Hij-hness the 
Prince Regent had found it compa'ible witt 
ihe views of Great Britain to adopt a simi- 
lar measure, as much dcluy might have 
it-en avoided ii accomplishing an objeci, 
which, it Is admitted, is" of high importance 
to both nations. 

The course proposed as a suljiti'uc for 
negotiations at St. Ptttirsburijh, under ttit 
ansplcea of Ihe Eatperor ol Russia, could 
not, 1 must reourk to your Lotdshio, have 
been nquired tor Ibe purpose of keeping 
the United States uoconoecied agoiosi Gieot 
Britian, with any affairs of the Continent. 
There was nothing in the propped mediv 
li'fo lentling m snen a rssolt. Ttic ttr.ns of 
the overture '."heated the contrary. In of- 
fering to bring the parties lojcihtr, not as an

and settle thtif difttrences and respective 
claims, in a manner satisfictop} to Hiem- 
selvea, H!2 lcdpetitl Mj.L.:y shewed ihv 
iotercit which he look in the welfare oi 
both parties. 

Wherever the United States may treat, 
they will treat v-i. "1 trie sincere desire ihey

justice and expediency, to he may continue in 
war contrary to all the maxim* of urudence ami 
wisdom. Is Mr. Madison improved in moral.*, 
or advanced in wisdom since the fatal moment he 
madly signed ihe death wan-ant of the nation in 
order to save hit election? What symptom of ev- 
idence has he given of moral or political reform- 
ation ? On the contrary his retaliation on 
J ~- 1 " - 1 i^i pri i>m ,-■;!..■ 11 i,i ,■■;- o, new andTavagc aspect 
in the annals of war. 

Tut authors of the war vijl not be willing u> 
abandon U without effecting any one of its de- 
clared objects. Such Eelf abasement for ibe good 
of others i» not in the nature of man. They 
know full well that if they clOM this war and 
gaiu nothing hut defeat and disgrace for the 
immense BWYifioea of blood and treasure, it has 
occasioned, they cannot e*cape the contempt of 
:he present age and abhorrence of posterity. — 
Hence we have lately .seen the .war party adopt- 
ing measures of the roost vigorous, nay ofa des- 
perate character. The Einbu,-<<o, just passed 
and now enforced, is Of this nature. A nd other 
mi j ;arei are in train of correspondent spirit. — 
The i ! . m : 'iji ■■ of the last campaign, like the la.'l 
bad voyage of the unfortunate merchant, seem 
only calculated to make them teas wipe and more 
desperate. 

If Mr, Madicon do not expect to effect peace 
fey this miB>-inn, why dors hi- iti&ti'.ute it ? Many 
itrong reasons may be given for the policy oi 

the mi:';'' in. 

1. It will facilitate bin loans. 
&. It will facilitate the avruy enlistments. 
£. It will make the people lets discontented 
ande:- the internal taxes. 

4. It will lervc to disarm and ijiiiot the opposi- 
tion to the war generally. 

5. It serves at. the present time to divert the 
public attention from Uie displaces of the la-t 
campaign. 

6. It has a maginl eSeCl in quitting people 
ander tbe Embargo; an embargo, which alone 
and witUoat all the other evile and cuncj of the 
country, the people would not hear three weeks. 

7. It is calculated to prevent any stkonc, 
UEAfCKKs, during the present session of ihe 
Legislature of Massachusetts. But if the poli- 
ticians of Massachusetts are Hie dupe* of such 
flimsy policy, they deserve tlic cbai go or degene- 
racy, which the friends of hl.ktfl.soit have en- 
deavored to li ■- on ilu in. * 

8. It will enable Mr. M*imson to observe 
the fortunes of our AUGUST FRIEND 
NAPOLEON*. Should he be effectually hum- 
bled, this negociation may be spun out, till our 
rulers fsel the neccs*ity, absolute, dive (a- Ij 
tJusm personally) necessity of acceding to terms 
of peace. But this will not be in the year 1314, 
though lie be down ; so much obstinacy and civil 

1 iiH then be pal iuto requisition in negotiating. 
At this momentous ori/ie, when Wah, Ba« 
ITHKtios, a»d Embargo in a hideouy, triple 
alliance are- forging chain* and misery gmbfe 
©nee free and happy country, w» regiet that 
Federalist; «r* tru-iiy i into 1 "**; -i bet r ncmsio^d 
weakness; footing to extraneous or foreign causes 
for r cliff. The fashionable rant now is that if 
BoS\p*aTR if put down, We shall have peace; 
nut if he recovers hira;elf the war will continue. 
The overthrow of Bohapmvte will unquestion- 
ably be a nevere hlaw to the administration and 
facilitate a peaie. Bui it will not extinguish Ihe 
Jtatred to England, nor furnish a salvo to the 
fcrtonal Iianor of our rulers in closing a war, 
that has been all loss, and making a peacp, that 
tas no gain. Though the disgraces of the war 
belong exclusively to its author;, and fa them 
yersonaXly, yet a violent effort will be made to 
associate and identify them with the uation. — 
Hence we hear it said and reiterated, no peace 
must be made but an. honorable peace; that i.-, 
■it must be n peace, that will bear off these mad 
rulers honorably. We say whatever the dis- 
graces of the war or of peace niuy be, they be- 
long personally to the ruler.*, because they in the 
first place waged war from wrong motives, aitd 
in the next place persisted in it, when its avowed 
*atwc, the orders in coum<', was removed. 

As long therefbre a* they can succeed in mak- 
ing the people believe that their cauM ii the cause 
of the nation, and their honor ■< the honor of 
ihe nation, we shall nave war, ivhclher Bonaparte 
he up or down ; nor shall we taste the Messing* of 
l>eacc, till the commanding voice of the iiiju'cd and 
abused people of the United Statct it heard, in 
terms, that can not U resisted.

*Ve are glad to tee that Mr. Web-t^i has 
walled up the consideration of his Resolutions

that was ever agitated in Congress, occasioued

It appears to me that this pictnre bean a

is put iiiii oar unwilling handf, lhat we may 
lacywe eejtli ocbetyte the great dalightoflhc 
authors of the WAr; who trust to the natural 
nriuitiilny of CJiankiutl, to excite a hatred ami 
rancor, which would renew alt the horrors of 
Intrharoai u-aifare and vandalism, and terminate 
in the utter destruction of the weaker party. 

»Ve began, by burninea part of Quecnslown.

asserts, that Newark was burnt, by the express 
orders of AniisnioM.,. "the luai winch plau-

A second object of retaliation, has been

those to be traitor-, who hare lakeu up arms

common cause with outlaws and with felons. — 
Our waiter* are in lwpCfl that England will

revenge for her best blood. What language can 
describe the horrors which must ensue ? What 
carnage! what murder! what a>*a.-«inaiioii !—

Mil. WEBSTER'S liESOf.UTIO&S. 

I havb always remarked, thai when a man 
is a<ked one or more simple, plain questions, 
which require very tittle more than yes or no for 
;mswtr, that if he does not reply in the shortest, 
mosldircct manner, and without circumlocution, 
it lends the mind to some unfavorable suspicions 
resperiiiip him. Hut when he gives an answer, 
accompanied with a long string of laboured 
arguments, to iuduce you to think his state- 
ments correct, depend upon it, he either has not 
told the Ivutb, »r he believes you will (without 
the assistant of his logic) think so. 

Mr. Wfcnsrrsit's Rbsolctions merely asked 
the Prudent to inform the House of Represent- 
atives when, nud in what manner, the Freuch 
decree, repealing the Berlin and Milan decrees, 
was fii st communicated to this Government ; aud 
if it was not communicated until the Summer of 
1813, whether he had made any remonstrance 
to the French Government for keeping it secret 
from him, as well as the British Government, 
lor more than a year after iu date. 

Nothing can be more clear, than lhat these 
Questions required no more thnh short and dis- 
tinct answers. But Mr. Mauison, through bis 
N.iitaiy of State, gives the House along, labor- 
nl, sophistical essay, tending to sheir, that if the 
decree had beeu made known ta the British in 
due lime, it would not have produced the repeal 
of the orders in council; or if made known to 
this* Government, before we declared war, that 
it would not base led to measures which would 
have presented war with Ihe. British, 

The supporters I'l'the resolution" very naturally 
thought, thai they were as capable of judging of 
con-cquciices, as Mr, Monroe could be, and felt 
no Utile displeasure ai this attempt to deprive 
them of the use ot then menial I am Hits, aud 
therefore moved lor a consideration of his reply,

TJure are other classes in Society who will 
within one or two years, and even in six months 
if Bonaparte is destroyed, -..■<■■ cause to change 
(heir opinjoni «mo their bonnes fortunes. The 
dapper youth who had mounted his silver epau- 
li:tr, and had indulged hi* dreams of Colotieleies 
and General-hip- — who had spurned at the dull 
pursuits of civil life," may find hit* vunjnury 
honors fade. Hie military dress must he chang- 
ed for tbe tttspistd dtcorum oi tloaiem'w, ptLbilt-
