By order of the, Meeting, .
FACTION, Chairman,
CATO--Nn. 111,
HAVING touched upon the demand which tinder
the treaty, we are entitled to make for th- of pro
perty carried oil, I have since examined official docu
ments, to wit, the letter of the commander in chief,
and the repriH of our 'cbmmiifioners, from which it
may be fairly estimated, at about one iniliion.of dollars.
As this was the firft infraction of the treaty, and made
without the ilighteft pretence, there can be no doubt
of the justice of our demand, as well for interest as prin
cipal, wh ch would raise the aggregate amount to about
one million fovea hundred thouland pounds. Is it not
very extraordinary that Mr. Jay {hould negleift an cb
jeet of so much moment, while he was so sedulous in
loading the United Stats with the private debts of Bci
tifti merchants; If (which there is the best founded
to deny) there is real'y any thing due on that
score, furcly no better fund can be conceived for it 3 dif
ciiarge than this well authenticated claim upon the Bri
tiih government. What fntkes this omifton the more
extraordinary is, that the PreCdcnt while commander
in chief, Congress in the .year 17, and at various
periods since, and Mr. J.fftrfofl \ery la e!y, have uni
formly treated this article as verv important, infilled
upon its fulfilment, and procured luch authentic docu
ments & f ' ts arnbunt, as to leive Britain without the
smallest apology for its intxecntion.
The next object of Mr. Jay's negociation was to ob
tain for the insults our national flag had sus
tained. -and redrefe for tiie injuries done our trade in
y : o!atwi of the laws of nations. Theft, may be divided
into two clafles, I. ACts authorized and ordered by the
court of St. James's, i. Afls done by individuals under
colour of but ill abttfe of tliofe orders. The firft class
must neceflarily govern the of their maritime
courts, which, though profefling tob'J ruled by the laws
of nations, always take the direction of the sovereign
Skill's sri ?iifie"o! Pr /ound peace all Trench veflils,and
thereby outraged every principle of natural law, the
Britiih Courts of Admiralty found no difficulty in con
d mmng them. When, in the fame war, to prevent
the Dutch from availing themt'elres of their neutrality,
to acquire the carrying trade, he made pri2e of every
(hip loaded with French produce. The CeOrtS of Ad
miralty condemned them without hefitatiori, and justi
fied their cocduft by the orders they hid received. In
deed it would be a felecifm to fay, thst the king' can
frame inffru&icns, and give orders for making prizes,
and that his courts have power to overrale those orders,
and puriilh the fubje.fl that obeys them. Since it must
often happen, that the inttreft of the state may jufli'fy
a breach of the code of nations, without its being nro
• per to communicate to the ordinary courts the principles
upon which this jollification is formed. Accordingly,
we find it the constant prailiee when a new ediiJl is f
fiied, to fend it to maritime courts as the rule for
their cotidu r t in determining of prize or no priie. And
the courts of appeal in prize cases consist of commif
ftotjers of appeal, of whom a majority must hr privy
counft!ior= (z% Geo. 11. chap. 3.) the reifon for which
is, that their decisions as judges may conform to the
inftrnilions tl cy give as privy roiinfellpfs. The second
dafs of injuries anyne_f by ir.-
are always corredled (not however without a great ex
penfe and delay) by the inferior courts of Vice-Admiral
ty in the f-rft or by appeal if their decisions
are erryneous. This difliniriion will be important in
dil'culling the 7th article of the treaty. 1 Let us now ex
amine the causes of complaint on the fubjeil of the de
tention or capture of velfils and cargoes as arising under
both these.
i (I. Orders -were iflued for detaining ourvclTels going
tr. France loaded with provisions even before the war
broke out, and we were compelled to part with our
property at such prices as the Br.tifh market afforded,
ih»ugh a better one was open to tis in France.
ad. They iiuied orders to take all our vefitls going
to France uith proviftons, and fiiortly after, in the'moft
pir3diou» manner without any notice, without even
piijjlifhing their intention in England, lea ft we should
lcafn : t from (hence, inftrrfJitd their armed ships in the
Well-Indies to make prizes of neutral veff:ls failini;,
either to or frorft the Fraorh iffands. 1 hefe fe+eral
cruel and unprovoked attacks upon our commerce, can
not be palliated by any law of nations howererobfolete,
and were attended with the following serious evils to
this country, for which we are entitled to a national
i. It didfoTfored <rjr tfhich is z serious evil to us
as a commercial nation, since it is the firrrniefs we mani
fefc in maintaining the refpe<£Y due to that, which must
snake the basis of our carrying trade, for who will trust
their merchandize to ships witch maybe violated with
impunity ?—Who employ vdTt's from which his pro
perty may be ravaged, vhthout the most distant hope,
tiiat tlier'fctcreign nisder whose protection he has placed
it, will vin.Hcare hjs rights ?
J. The loss of that property the Country would
Jiave acquired, had nrit many been deterred by these
measures from entering into this branch of commerce.
—As this cannot be ft-ited a? th'e loss of an individual,
it must be conGdt red as a general fofs by which the
whole community is afiefted', rind for which therefore
the whole community wete es itlcd to a rec»inpence in
3. The actual loss of property, fir ft by the detention
and limitation of the price of the articles taken, and 'he
still greater loss by condemnation of lh : -ps >»J cargoes,
for which nothing was paid.
4. The individual loss of ieamen who were discharg
ed from their (hips, compelled I y force, reduced by
abfohite want to enter into the Bi itlfh fervire in the
V'eft-Indies, where great numbers of them .' : ed of the
diseases of the climate, and the ill-usage of their oppres
sors. I have already observed that the treaty makes no
kind of profifiofi for these worthy ami unhappycitizens,
or for the families of those that have periilied ; dif-
and tmfeeling om'flion 1 Besides this loss for
which the individual was entitled to a compensation,
the nation might demr.nd exemplary damages for the
indignities and a<slual loss of strength in the death or
removal of many Valuable citizens, the loss of many
yefTeh, at a t'rrre, When by their employment so great
a profit would have resulted to the community.
Tie above enumerated evils were the efTe<sl of the
express ai>, arid emanated from the fprcial authority of
the Britlfli government.- }n ackiirion to this, we fuiTer
ed lefts under the unattlboriitd it els of individuals,
who, in some infiances, plundered and yrweured the
condemnation of veflels that were not liable to capture
by the special inftriuSlions to which I have'allude 1. But
the number oftl efe were comparatively small, and for
these courts of adjudication were always open ; and yet,
bj.a inoit extraordinary fatality, Mr. Jay overlooks all
Uiefj flagrant injuries committed by the Bi itifti king
against the United States as a nation, and for which
they are without remedy, but by a national eompenfa
tion, and neither alki nor procures any redrtfs.
The nature of Mr. jay's application is explained in
his courtly note to Lord Grenvdle. This contains no
complaint of ar.y of the ii:ftru£lions I have alluded to,
or any other, expressive of the injury that one nation
h id done other, but merely in the cafe cf indi
■vidua!s. His words are, that great and exceftive in
juries have, under colour »f his majejiy's coramjton and
''a'qth»Vity, been done to a numerous class of American
mercliant 1 !, ( not to the American nation) the United
States can, for reparation, have recourse " only to the
jtlflioe,' authority, and int«rpolition of his majesty,"
Th'Oiigh- the whole of this note, he speaks of nothing
farther tha i indivic' .'.I cempenfation for individual in
jurv, leaving the two nations entirely ont of fight as
melons ; and indeed if he had intended any thing more,
ii'lie had had th»luftru£Uons I have mentioned,in view,
it hava been impoffihle for him to have made
use of so many panegyrics on the jujlice and humanity
of his Britannic maieily. In fpeiking of our seamen
(which he doth wiih luch pathos ai to lead us to hope
for some fp rited demand in their favour) he contents
himfelf with only requeifing, that they may be liberat
ed, and unmolested in future, without a word of com
pensation for the past. —The reply of Lord Grenville
is in the fame stile—Not a word ot the inftru<sl!ons, not
i word of apology to the American nation, not a word
of comper.fation, except for the irregularities commit
ted by individuals, &c. The Britiih nation is supposed,
in ali'thefe proceedings, to be immaculate. Now let
us examine the article, and fee how completely Mr.
Jay forgot that he was envoy for a great nation, and
lunk into the suppliant folicitorof some merchants, whose
cause he has managed so ill, as to leave them in a much
worse state thrn he found them, since he took from
them the protection of their own government, to leave
them the chicanery of, ccfurts in which the very inftruc
tior.s that occasioned their losses mud be admitted as
laws fufficiently valid to juftify them.
The Vllth article exactly pursues the principles
eftabliftied in the note, to wit, that the United States
are entitled to no •-ecampence ; that the governnem
of Great-Britain has done us no injury, and that "di
vers merchants and others" only have to romplaU of
the irregularity of feme captures and condemnatirm,
which it supposes the courts of admiralty are, for he
most part, competent to decide upon. But that i; it
(hould happen, that there are any lofles for wheh
adequate compensation can'ot be obtained, provided
that the party claiming has been guilty of no neglett
cump li/uuon m&if he afcertaine'i Jjy
commifiioners, and his Britannic maieftv engage? to
pay them. As this article fays nothing about opening
the courts, it must have been understood by both par
ties, that they were necelFarily open independent of
the treaty, so that all the advantage, if any, that may
result from appeal*, were rights that individuals in
every civilized nation may claim, and which many
had exerciftd before Mr. Jay's million. In this rcf
pedl, then, nothing was efTeifled by his negociation,
unless it was, that the time for bringing appeals is said
to have been enlarged; but of this, the treaty fays
nothing; this too, must therefore, depend upon the
will of the. of Great-Britain, or on the rules his
court chufe to establish. All that Mr. Jay kasth.n
done in this important business that involved the ho
nour of his country, the great °f its commtie,
the rights and liberties of its citizens, and the pr, pert'y
of individuals, many of whom have been ruined by
the loss of their capital, is to obtain <? promise of com
pensation in futfh cases as are so Angularly circumftan
cedas not tobe withinthe reach of legal redress. When
We come to view this article {tripped of its unneceflary
verbage, it will appear to mock with delusive hopes,
the men that it affi.&s to relieve. Let us p—what
is to be the business of the CoOtmifij/w'ers, and of ton--
nature and kind the causes that are to come be ore
Thijjf are not to relieve against rapture* under the
order of April, November or January, ift. Because
neither of these are complained of and the preamble of
the, article, expressly relate# to the injuries " divers
merchants and others"— —complain of having fuf
tsiued by irregular captures or conuemnatipns of their
vessels and other property under colour of authority
and commission, tjfe. Now it would" be absurd to
luppofe, that this can have any reference to what is
done by the rxprefs order of the sovereign, or to any
a<ft but such as is an abuse of that order and authority j
but these abuses make but a small part of our cause of
complaint (which goes to tkeotder itfelf) and are be
itdes necelTarily rulievable in a court of appeals with
out the intervention of a minister extraordinary ; and
were so before the treaty. The great cause of com
plaint, the inJlrußiotis which are the laws of the court
of admiralty not beirg complained of, all condemna
tions fairly made under them, mufl be confirmed by
the treaty. What then are the cemmiflioners to do ?
i hey are not to rev.fe the derisions of the courtj;
they are not to interfere where the injured party has
neglected to appeal. The decrees of the courts are to
be absolute with re!pea to them, nor can they as far
as their powers may be coileifled from the treaty",
bind the crown of Great-Britain in any cafe whatever,
in which the party claiming the benefit of their decifi
-011 does not firft fhe-'that he has commenced and car
ried through his ftiit in the British court of appeals,
that their decree was in his favour (for without doubt
their judgment is meant to be concltifive, or else the
ecmmi!Tioners would only be a second court of ap
peals, which would be a solecism not even hinted at in
the Ireaty or preceding negociations) that the cap
tor is insolvent ; that his securities have been prosecu
ted to judgment, and that they are also insolvent, in
this cafe ; and this appears to me the only pofiible
caie the comlitiffioftcrs may bind the crown to pay
what has been recovered in his courts.
Now I would aft any man who reflects a nwnent
on the delays of the British courts, and on the maze of
law, which imift be had before a Cnple cause ran be
brought before the commiflioners, whether the whole
article is not a mockery of justice, whether any cause
Can be ready for this tribunal in two years, though by
the limitation exprefied, the claims must be entered
within eighteen months, and whether it Would notte
much cheaper for the United States to pay the few
perl'ons that may poflibly Be relieved by fh:s mode, the
amount of their lofles, than load themselves with the
expence of so useless a commiflion ? CATO

IN all free governments the peoplehave certain
i a to be informed of the proceedings which
int ere (I their welfare—but that they fliould receive
this information ffom the proper fountain, is i trath
not to be In all governments founded on
the principle of civil liberty, there are ereiied cer
tain departments with parti'cular powers, and all
thtfe powers combined together, conftittite that
body which has the power of framing jbe ] aws
that govern the community. Whether it was ever
intended by the people of any country where such
a form of government as above alluded to exiAs,
that ihe people at larjje (hould have a voice in the
formation of those laws which their conftitntion
gives to particular departments, it a quefticm that
does not admit of much dimbt. The government
of America gives to particular bodies certain pow
ers, and among tliem it allows ot the Different de
partments concealing from the public at large focli
tranfaftions as they lhall conceive neceffarjr—if this
is doubted, turn to th« constitution, In conform
ity to this power the Senate, when lately convened,
thought proper to conceal from the public eye the
late treaty with England until it (hould be ratified,
when, as it wonld become the law of the land, it
(houltl be made public. From this view of the fub
je£t can the conduct of Senator Mason be juftified
in publilhing the treaty, contrary to the injunction
of ; tlie majority of the Senate, whieh aft is autho
rised by the government the plople have chosen for
themfelvrs. Does this not seem afTumiug in Mr.
Mason ? Has he not here violated the leading fea
ture of a republican government, that the majority
(hall govern ? But this great, this all-wife Senator,
this meteor of patriotism, fays, " the majority (hall
not govern, for ahho the majority of the Senate
have enjoined secrecy concerning the treaty, i know
that it vvi 1 be better for it to' be published, there
fore 1 will have it published before it i 3 ratified or
lejefted."—Let us here paufs and ask what will
bfcome of that country where the feeble voice of
ore man, whose ambition afrer power ex#els that of
an sJlexandir, rtiall be permitted to over balance the
opinion of a majority—of a majority acting accoid
ing to powers given them by the people. Beware
i then, my countrymen, 1:11 you repsnt when too
late. Let nut this daring, this dishonourable aft,
be received as a mark of this man's patriotism—
• but attribute it, and as a Virginian I lament that I
am compelled to attribute ft, to motives unworthy
of a republican. Already has the trumpet of fame
proclaimed him the hon ;ft Senator—Oh ! America,
but one man whom thou cantl call an honed man—
I lament thy deflitute (late, but if such conduct as
this Senator has been guilty of is to designate the
man of honor, happy for my country that (he pof
feflcs but this one homj? Senator. I exult that only
one ch*ra£ter of this (tamp holds a feat in on* of
the principal branches of our government. Here
indeed was presented to this great man—great let
me sail him, for he lias done an aft worthy to be
I written in letters of gold—an apportunity of mak
inja display of his patriotism, and which is already
foui.led from east to weft and from north to south
by hkheralds, who go on in front to proclaim his
noble O'eds, by which he is in hopes of turning the
tide of popularity in his favor. Yes, popularity is
dearer to him than the inviolability of his honor,
and of the hws and government of his country he
pretends to h>ve so ardently. However bad the
treaty might have been, this man has acted that
part which ought to stigmatize him as a man who
will facrifice his honor to the hopes of obtaining
popularity, and who will disregard the laws of his
country, in order to impofc himfclfon the world as
a patriot
I am Aire his late condu£t refpefting tlie insur
gents ought to preclude him from assuming the ap
pellation of a patriot; for when the militia were
called upon to hold themfclves in readiness toNnarch
against the insurgents, and when many, anxious to
support the laws of their country, unmindful of the
toils of a camp, and resrardlefs of the inclemency of

mighty man ? He informed them that they belonged
to the firft requisition, which w.-.s the 8000, and
vverc not to go out against the insurgents : after he
tolj them this, docs he go on to endeavor to make
up the quota that was due from his brigade ? no,
he does not. Does he exhort them to oppose the
infrs&orsof the laws? No, but tells them that the
excise law is an odious one ; and in what chara&er
does he all this ? Does he do it as a private man ?
No, he does it when he is at the head of a brigade
in the character of a soldier—in that character which
is emblematic of patriotism— yet this man is called a
patriot. If he ha! been the author of one benefi
cial aft, even of the leafl degree for the honor of
the State that calls him her citizen, let those who
know it make it public; for as far as 1 have been
capable of searching into the political hillory of
Virginia, I do not discover him to have been in.
(humental in promoting any eft which would add
to the profpenty of his country, but on the con
trary have found him in the opposition.
The publication of the treaty is a gross violation
oftbeconftitution as can be » inasmuch it gives to
both houses the power of keeping such proceedings
secret that they (hall think proper. Having viola
ted the Constitution, he has violated his oath ; for
before he took his feat in the Senate, I presume he
took an oath to support the constitution. How
th«n can he be said to have complied with that oath,
when he in the broad face of day he published a pro
ceeding which the Senate delired should be kept se
cret ? By what magic then can that man be turned
into a patriot, who wdl violate a government that
hat been productive of so much good to the country
it has hitherto ruled ? But if such men as Mr. Ma
fan are held up as patriots, it will foo'i cease to rule.
Well knowing this would be an ad pleafingto
the set of men who despise order and peace, and
call themselves democrats—but whom I call ty
rants, and whose a&ions are of the molt tyrannical
kind, and which, unhappily for this country are
too numerous, he has dared to disregard those laws
and that government, he was sent in protest and
cherish—-Let me alk the gentleman, if the people
can ratify a treaty by any other method than that
pointed out by their government ; the peoulehave
been proceeding in this method, which is by their
representatives in Senate, and their executive in
conjui.aitm. What use then could have refuhed
from the publicattion—they cannot fay to the Se
nate; you (hall not ratify this treaty, for until they
alter then-government the Senate and the Executive
have a right ro ratify any treaty they (hall think
proper—Why then I a fl<, has this publication been
made ? To ensure the private ends of the person wlvo
had it published. This man has uniformly opposed
the government and iis measures, and this late aft
seems to be one more mark of that violence that
has ever accompanied him, rnd since he has been
raised into office, has become more outrageous than
ever.—View him well Americans, and probably
you may find in him afecond Cromwell—Cromwell
acted the part of a patriot until he had gotten the
people under his cotttrwil, when he immediately
became the ui'tlrper. I hope when 'He iwntf
offers, the people of th;s Itate will exprcts m a pro.

The Editor of the Aurora, has sent perlons to dif
ferent parts of the Union to make sale of copies of
this treaty, before, the news-papers in the ftatea
could be filled with it, whereby he will accumulate
a considerable sum of money. This Editor and Sc
nator Mason, it feetns arevery intimate, but one
conclusion can be drawn from such intimacy.
The publication certainly carries with it great
piefumption, that this man should undertake to do
a thing *hich no other Senator would, becanfe
they conceived it improper; for there are even otiiei*
who did ked and who voted againlt the treaty, but
who, notwithstanding, refpe&ed the contiitut'ion
too much, and who, regarded their honor eqnnify
as much, and therefore conceived themlelves not
at liberty to a<3 contrary thereto.
