STRICTURES on a publication, entitled " Fea
;,;ic, turns of Mr. Jay 1 ! Treaty, from aS. C. paper.
fa ell I CONTINUtD.J
tisfy The writer of the diilortions proceeds to alarm
war " the citizens of the United a thousand
chimeras : " What with the eftabli/hment of Bxi
lt ti(h colonies and Britilh wirehoufes, the naturaliza
,he tioii of Britilh land holders, and the unqualified
is of admission of British fubjefts," he aflures us that
the « aa American will hardly be able to find elbow
_ room for fiimfelf and family : our merchants will
tates dwindie to clerks, our huibandmen will degenerate
;te of into the condition of the feudal rillenage, and in a
tree- (hurt courfc of years America will probably exhib
c"y it the astonishing fpeftacle of a countiy, pofleffed,
' cultivated and (tpjoytd by aliens." A'i this won
awSi derful operation is to be brought about, by fufier
:d to ing a few Canadian settlers to reside near the potts,
Miy and permitting those British fubjedts only who now
,in S- hold lands in the United States to continue to hold
them ! Is it possible that this alarmilt could have
had so contemptible an idea of our citizens, as to
ffict address foch trash to their underflandings ? He
sue- seems to think that the epithet Britilh, which he
' t ' lc so liberally employs, carries along with it at on«e
•j. terror and conviction. It is surprising he omitted,
— in his enumeration, the British manufa&urcs with
which we are cloathed ; it is equally furprifing,that
ICa in expressing, his terrors about the Mifiilippi, he
unil fofjjot that the j#int right of navigating that river
i» secured by the former treaty of 1783; and that
ar( i. in trembling at the confrquence of peimitting only
those Biitilh fubjefts who now hold lands to cob
n. tinue to hold them, he forgot the right which the
French have by treaty to hold iands, without limi
rip- tation.
The feudal villenage he so feelingly deprecates
rm exists already,but fortunatciyjonly in a part of Amc- '
iges r ' ea ' to " s lh!iine,to which that alarmilt is supposed
rom t-o be warmly attached : in a state which boatts of '
de- its pre-eminent love for liberty, and of its (
exclusive title to patriotism, we (till tind the degra- '
jne ding relictsof the feudal fyltem, an exemption of '
land from the payment of debts, and the exciulive
rors rights of citizenlhip vefied in landholders,
en- Th's writer betrays too plainly, his views and '
; on " connedians, by his sympathy for the felt" created J
societies, (now abolished even in France) and his 1
aversion to what he calls city cohorts and prastorian '
bands: thus vainly attempting to ftigmaiize thof* '
valuable associations of worthy citizens, who have '
done so much honor to true republicanism by their «
and fuppert tto their government and laws againit the J
parricidal attacks of the fjftious. '
The treaty, he tells us, is "to rejudge the so- 1
'to lemn judgements of our courts of justice." Can
; he have read the treaty ?It expressly confines the r
•n. eomm '''' oners to cases, to which the ordinary '
; nj? coorfe of judicial proceedings cannot extend :it is f
[hes expressly limited to cases of insolvency, occasioned 1
by legislative a<Ss, and has no reference to judicial !
•th- determinatie-i. I
_ " It condemns, he tells us, individuals to the 1
payment of debts from which they had previouflj a
to been discharged by i«w v" glaring dirt or- 1
® nt tion- The United States are to pay, and not in- f
dividuals, in cases of individual insolvency : but as
3,. falfehood generally refutes itfelf, so, we are told by "
et; him, in the very next sentence, that "the treaty "
set, makes the government of the union responsible for 1
ds - the contrails of private citizens, and the defalca- n
— tions of bankrupts in one sentence, individuals v
M are to pay ; in the next, the government of the 1
ted t,j.; o n. Does he mean the fame debts? The trca- 0
ty prescribes but one rule. ri
The treaty, he fays, restrains the use of our fta- 11
pie commodities: what is meant by this? The
1 2th at tide is the only patt to which he can refer,
whick was never intended to include American cot
ton ; and that clause is not ratified ! Jumblingto- 1
gethei his fan ago of fanciful moifters, the alarm- -
— ill exclaims that "the mind is (hocked with an ap.
prehension that the ratification of the treaty may p
:h- be the death warrant of the union thus former
if- gloomy croakers foreboded the death warrant of
ra our liberties in the adoption of the federal conftitu
l'e tion, in the pafiing the exeife law, and other adts,
T> which, in spite of malignant predictions, our un
to ien and oitr liberties have yet survived.
But the great and strong argument of the Alarm
ist, is, that the treaty and the conltitution of the tr
United States are at war with each other; now tii
— f this circumllance, one wmtkl instead of 1;,
! alarming, ought to convey to him the highell th
of ; gratification, for, in that cafe, the treaty must ed
;be null and void : whatever is at war with lei
-11 | the confiitution mult yield to it, that being para- of
ns j mount. It is however curious to follow the llrange
ro : contradictions between this writer and himfelf, and tti
' ; ! between himfelf arid other writer* of the fame rit
x, . Hamp. It the treaty be so clearly repngnant to si c
ty J the conftitntion frorti beginning to end, a^he pre- T
| tends to demojiltiate, what Beceflity was there for pa
'j his endless catalogue «f abomination* contained in tr.
•id 't: he had only to prove its unconftitutionality, th
, r and the bulincfs was done : his afling otherwise is an
v. a contiadiclion of his own doftiine. Other alarm- th
" iits, in 'oppolition to this writer, have exclaimed, tal
•' the impending treaty, for it is not TI
like a cfimmon aft of legislation which can be re- ve
pealed at our will ; when ratified it is the supreme
fflii) of the land, by the Conflitutiou, and cannot he
!»e altered but by war, or the cor.sent of the other G.
party to it." This writer asserts, confidently, that to
a, enrgtel's alone can, •' by the constitution, make a
3 treaty, lecaufe it is a legflati-ve aft." Other oppofi- f OI
f_! iron writers complain of the caiftitutiwn, for hav- thi
d j ing I'ficJ the treaty-making p<nv C r in the Pre/,dent Sii
i- , mid Senate. They cannot all be right. A very am
» flight examination of the ftibjeft will exhibit the wa
e fallacy of this writer's doflrine and the fophiftrv of
* of bis dedu&ions. - g t
| . A sovei"nment,5 ov ei"nment, he fays, " may be changed m wh
i"* c l ence without being subverted fn its forms : A
— . governments have too generally proved to be a kind the
j of political chrysalis, pafiing from the grub of pure it
. democracy to the butterfly of abfoluce monarchy." c l e <
: . By the terms of the simile, one might conclude pat
; ,hat llr mcal,t 8 fat if' "II pure democracy, and a
, on monarchy, though it is more pro- til
bable that his habits and connexions may have fug- of i
gefted an ofrrjjion, which is as infukhg t0 demo- inti
——— cracy as the simile itfclf is J aixi inapplicable
P to these (Ute3 :aa infuhing to th« wwiti i>*«tling«
and cbarafter of Americans is ii, to compare t>is
ignorant and enslaved valla's o> Polwid to the fict
I |rm and enlightened citizensof this country, w I*o know
sand 'brir rights, and have capacity to discern t;iat their
j!,;. true interests lie between the extremes ot 'icentiauf
jj z!l _ ness and a govei ninent unconlrouled by coiiiiitution
ified a ' rellriftiens.
tj la t After a vevbofe exordium on the chacafter of a
b ovv limited government, he Hates a cafe, which proves
w ;[j at once an ignorance of the federal canftitution.
■rate endeavour to (hew that the treaty making
a power, as he terms it, cannot be paramount to a
[lib- legislative - aft, he ailcs the fol'lswinjr ridiculous
queltion : " Can tile Senate and President propose
~o n' an amendment, by way of treaty, to the conllitu
fj- er . tion ? And if they can,'in this way, original:,
□ Its might they not ejffi-ctuate alterations iu the funda
nmy mental points of our government, and make in tact
t)o ij a new eonftitution V It is almost incredible that
lave such absurdities (hould escape the pen of a man,
sto who profeffes to write giavely on constitutional
points. What connexion is there between the pow
j | cr »f making treaties and that of proposing arnend
>ntc ments to the eonftitution ? The one is expressly
ta l veiled in the President and two thirds of Ihe Senate ;
v j ( jj the ether, as expressly, in two thirds of both hou
,|iat fe« of Congress: In the one cafe, the House of
j )e Reprefeiitativcs has no ageucy ;in the other, the _
j ver President has npne :In the former, the is fi
nal ; in the other, it only recommends to other '
)n ]„ authorities, who are to decide. What opinion must
, on this writer have entertained of the i»tellefts of his :
readers, when Ve afited this question ? And what 1
j m ;_ opinion mull they entertain of his designs, when !
they read it ? 1
ltc . s He proceeds to inform us that, by the conftitu-
Te _ tion, congress is empowered to boirow money—
>fed " Suppose," fays he, "it wis deemed expedient |
0 f to fublidize Portugal, instead of building frigates, '
could two thirds of the Senate and the President 1
rra . either borrow or guarap.tee a loan for that purpofc <
"of h ,reat y ?" In anfwaring in the affirmative, I 1
live w '" <l llot e him an authority which I know he will t
alTert to without difficulty. When the proposal 1
ailc j for building the frigates was made in Congress, «
ted r " Madison, who objected to it, as an inefficient
j,; s measure, recommended that the President and Se- r
ian nate Should negociatc with Poi tsgal and subsidize r
iof« ® ser or protection of our trade from the Alge- ;
ave rines, which could only be done by borrowing or j 3
, e ; r guaranteeing a loan for that purpose, as there was c
the at 'bat time so little money in the treasury that a j
loan was rteeeflary to carry on the ardinary opera- c
f O . tiens of the government £
an Proceeding in his ftippofitions, he makes another c
the more extravagant, if possible, than the foregoing, t
ary " l ' le eonftitution the importation of certain J
tis P er sons shall not be prohibited by Congress prior t
nC( j to the year 1808 : But suppose Mr. Wilberforce c
cial aci ncgocisted, instead of Lord Grenville, and ),
h«d made the prohibition of such importation in t
the l ' ie y car I "o8 a fine qua non, could the President t
and Senate admit the llipulation Th> t
or- Is > tlfey admit by treaty what is expressly c
in- f°rbid fey th« eonftitution ? Their power of mak- ' 0
tas !n S treaties being derived alone from that inftru- ],
(jy ment, how could they aft in direst opposition to t
3t y it? A treaty, like a law, must be confarmable to ji
for eonftitution to be binding ; every part repug- f
ca- na:l ' to it, is a dead fetter. As well might he aflc, f
ials whether the President and Senate can regulate by u
;^e treaty that the citizens of America shall eat but a
ca- one mea ' a day ? reasoning may suit the me
ridian of Pittjlurgh, but it mull excite the con- &
la- ,em P l or derision of every rational citiren. c
