The Reprkskmtation and Petition of
the Subscribers, members of the Democratic
Societies, cflahlifhed at Frederickfburgh in
Virginia, and cllfwherc in the United States— SBEWETH,
THAT viewing with a deep and patriotic foli
citudcthe pre'feit awful crilis of owraftairs, verging
from bad so worse ; and influenced with an equal
concern for the preservation of our own influence,
and the de'lrurtion of the peace aud government of
our country, fynonimes inseparable one fr»m the
other ; we exercifc the right of petitioning for
ourselves, and, if you will pltafe to ;ji»e to
oiir affumptiori, for all the commercial, agricultu
ral and manufacturing older* of society.
The trtat y of amity, commerce and navigation,
between theUnitid States ar.d Great Britain, late
ly ratified by the President and two third* of the
Senate, who had full conftitu'ioual authority, with
out consulting us, to do the fame, has nevertheless
nndergone our difoiflion, and received our ui.qua
lified disapprobation. Notwithstanding it is clear
that the President and Senate had authority to art
at they have done, as they have be:n Wanting in
that deference which is due to our fecieties, we
look up to your body as the great and dernier re
sort j not doabting, that as you participate in the
intcrefts and feelings of the peiople, which we fuf
pcrt they do not, you will receive our communica
tions with more attention and fefpert. Altho' we
cannot believe, that so long as you-regard the con
stitution as a sacred and inviolable depolit, you will
dare openly to attack the privilege and power of
the other two branches, yet we flatter ourfelvcs
that our unwearied arts, united with the artivity
and discontent of individuals in your henourable
honfe, will produce such discord in the general le
gislature, as will effectually render void the inten
tion of that detcltable contrart. We cherish an
hope indeed, that, if we can pit you one agaigft
the other, we fha'l be able so completely to shake
the conllitution and laws, that one more bold cxci
tion will lay the whole fabric proltraie at our feet:
and that, in the ifTue, we shall be able to maaige
and govern the people without you, or through
you at least, a» our inftriimentiL Such, wekiiow,
were the arts of the Jacobins in France, and bfull
aud com; le'.e was their fußi ess, that the Convection
became a' hill i o more than mere puppets, agitated
by those date jugglers, the ctula of Paris.
With the rruft lively apprehensions we regtrd all
t!ie stipulations in the said tieaty at inimical, ijvhich
are designed to counteract the intrigues of a cer
tain European na ion, who have long labourrd to
destroy our independence, and render us the mere
iiillrumcntt of their convenience. And as their
cause is a viituous struggle for the rights of man,
altho' they hav# hitherto managed it rather awk
wardly, and as some of ut have the krongaft
private teas-ms to aid and abet their meafnres, eve
ry thing which they disapprove, demand*, our turn
ed oppofi'ion. Their success in the present war,
which no J >nger appiars doubtful, is fupcrior in
weight to evoy xonhdera'ion of our own intetetl,
foreign and domeftie. Bcfides, when we remem
ber the important aids that we received from Louis
the i6tfi, in the revolutionary war of America,
and recolle£t, that s (hort time before his decapita
tion he t|snisferred the merit of all his to
the Nationil-Convention, it mull be acknowledges
there arc no Sacrifices that we can make, which will
he too gteaf.
But far be it from you to luppofe, tliat because
the intcreft of.your illuflrioui, triumphant and mag
nanimous allies, has obtaiped the firft place in our
eonlideration, we have been indifferent to your
conftituiiorial privileges, ot the chartered right* of
tlie people No! We a'e equally apprelienfive tH
tliefe two important refpedU ; and, although they
are neither so much endangered by the tieaty, not
so mterelling to ourselves as the cause of our allies,
we shall endeavour to point out the enemy to you,
where he lie* in petto ; for without some futther
information it will be rather difficult to discover
First. then, This treaty of amity, commerce,
and navigation, seems calculated purposely, aliho'
not solely, to adjull and regulate our commerce
with a foreign nation ; which no treaty of thr kind
ever did before ! And it has some relation lik wife
to our trade with the Indian iri'ies, we fnp
pose the negociatois thought was a branch of com
merce that required regulation also !
Secondly. It has established * fair and equal mode
of determining certain disputed boundary-lines be
tween the United States, md the American terri
tories of Great-Britain, which had been fettled
by the treaty of 1783, but not defined with fuffi
cient clearncfs and precision.
Thirdly. It comprises a summary rule for reci
procating the duties and impofta of both countries,
as they relate one to the other. Who ever heard
of f'ich a thing in a treaty c[f commerce !
Fourthly. It authorizes a man to hold an eftatf,
which he had a right to do without it, agreeable
with the treaty of peace : and it grants him a pri
vilege of option for a certain time, cither to be
come a citizen of the Uui:ed States, or to conti
nue an alien : and the benefiii of both these arti
cles are not equal to the privileges planted to
Frenchmen, by the treaty with Louis the 16th J
but this treaty was coutra&ed before the inftitti
tion of Democratic Societies.
Fifthly. It declares that a fubjeft of citiz/n,
why ffuill wage war againlt either people contrary
to the law* of nations and thelawsot his Sovereign,
is a pyrate and tViight to be hanged, without any
further ceremony than is commonly exeroifed to
wards such vermin ; who are the common foes of
all countries.
Sixthly. It obliges certain patriotic citizens of
the fouthcrn Suites to pay their bona Jide debt? ;
which, having neither the fear of God, nor the
devil before their eyes, thev hud n-folved not to
do ; and in cafe they are Hill ined to aft
like villains, 'he Unite.' States !tre bound to make
compcnfstion,. or to be branded as a nation of vii-
LjtUy. ~*"Vs fetffame treaty is like the Grecian
horse, and is tilled with these and ten thousand
other potent enemies, aimed for our deltru&ioft,
but so concealed that no man living can fee them :
bu! they i.rc there ; and if we ever admit the crea
ture within our walls, it wiil be more fatal to us
and our posterity than its proto type was to the
citizens of Troy.
" Wheiefore, foltpinly protesting against the
exercise of power by the Prrfident and Senate, in
anj of the foregoing cases," although the consti
tution hath entrusted them alone with that power;
We your petitioners mod earneltly pray that llit
representatives of the people in Congrcfs a'i< nv
hled, who hare not the leall fliadow of authority
to interfere in this bulmefs, would so far give youi
felves up to a spirit of difcerd and delusion, as tc.
attempt to set the treaty aside. Or if this cannot
be done ill toto, as we really wi(h, that they will
at lealt adopt such measures refpeiting the obnox
ious parts, as will remove of good
democrats. As w«Avellknow that if youlay your
hands o<i a Angle particle of it, the whole and the l
conllitution of the United States together with
it, will tumble into ruins. A finale pin, taken
out "of the mach rie, will disunite all it's compo

net, when were fir (I inllituted, we have la
boured faithfully to thwart the govemmert of our
country, and to rath inro a war with Great-Bri

we excited an infur.edlion in the Wettern Counties
of Pennsylvania. By the means we have
raised mobs in all the principal sea ports of t le
Union to condemn the treaty difiufiion.
We have burnt the effigies of the negociators. We
have abused 'he PresidenT, and all the moll viVii
otis public c!'«ra£icrs of our country. But all has
hitherto been infufficicnt to raise such a ferment

pitch of fiemy as would be proper for the grand
