Hqujt of Rcprefentatrvee
,• M ""- Gilcs ' s reply to Mr. W. Smith's ob
( lervations on the palling of the naval
, armament bill.
Mr. Giles observed that it had Jjecn
said and repeated in the committdßßk
t. i proposed measure, was war. lajoS
nied that the measure in ttfelfvns w* or
that it furnifhed a jufl oaufe of war. He
believed, however, that it was problema
tical whether it would eventuate in peace
or war; indeed, he remarked, that the
crisis of affairs is already such i that whe
ther the measure be adopted or not, he
viewed war as a probable event, peace as.
a poflible event ; but the point he con
tended for was, that if the
towards the United States be fulficient to
juftify reprisal, the exercise of the right
dpes not furnifh a just cause of war. The
exercise of a right by one nation, can ncv
ver involve the absurd consequence, of
giving another nation the right to exercise
He said that gentlemen on one fide of
this ; question seemed to ast upon an ima
ginary, instead of the real state of things,
he was not therefore aftonilhed at hearing
the committee cautioned against the viola,
tion of neutrality.
He did not conceive that the present
state of things between the Unjted States
and Great Britain would juftifv the use of
the term Neutrality. Neutrality is a
term used ta fignify the relation, in which
two nations stand towards each other
Neutrality, therefore requires two parties;
either party may destroy the relation of
things between the parties. It therefore
appeared absurd to him to fay that Great
Britain was in a state of depredation and
war towards the United States—and the
United States in a state of neutrality to
wards Great Britain, It has been said
that the United States have not abandon
ed their neutrality—this is true—but it
is no evidence that neutrality exists.
Great Britain has abandoned it for them.
He said however, that this was disregard
ing the substance and entering into a mere
cavil about names.
It was not material in his opinion/what
name ought to be given to the existing
relation of things between the United
States and Great-Britain: Whether it
was called a state of pcaee, a state of war,
a state of neutrality, a state of reprisal, a
state of retortion, or a state of"very unci
vil conduct on the part of Great Britain s
nor did he conceive it material to afcer-
