From the Iludfon Gazette.
"Mr. Stoddard,
1 have read in your lali paper, a letter from a
gentleman at Paris to his friend in Hudson, s»nd 1
trull that this precious morsel will engage the at
tention of all those who value the lubflance more
than the found of American Independence.
'I heaft of writing a filly or mean fpiriud letter
would excite pity, but the publication of it defeives
fjmething vvoife. It seems the treaty with Great
Britain has offended the French republic ; and
what then ? It seems also the name of American
is become hated in France on account of this trea
ty, and our letter writer is panic (truck with the ap
prehension of French refentmcnt against us. This
is not the full instance, nor the hundredth,in which
we have heard the fame pitiful ftoty. The threats
of Fiench vengeance have kept peace with the ad
monitions to American gratitude ; gratitude to the
Freneh republic for aids afforded us by the French
king. Thu«between our gratitude for past favors,
and threats of impending vengeance, the fovereijjn
ty sad independence Of. our country are to be laid
proftratc. We hear much of thefpiiit of seventy
fix, and we hear moil of it from those, who cither
never possessed it, or who have fhamefully apoltati
zed from it. That spirit in its genuine purity, i*
upon record—it is recorded in the memorable de
claration on the fourth of July 1796. What would
the illustrious patriots have said, if they could havo
luppofed that the Americans would have become
fj pegenerate as to wish to facrifice the indepen
dence of their own country to "a love-fiek fond
nefs" for another, and to intimidate their govern
ment from measures advantageous to the public,left
they (liould give umbrage to a foreign power ? Let
1 this a oblg instrument theanfwei to quef
tiou " from hence forth, we will consider G. Bri
tain, like all other nations, enemies in war ; in peace
friends." It wa6 hereotfore a practice of Fiench
nurses and mothers, inllead of hobgoblins to fright
: en the children with the name of Marlborough.and
- our warlike patriots seem to think, that they can
frighten the Ameiican people with the threats of
I'rench vengeance. This letter writer however
will find, that the people of this country have not
so far debased themfclves, as toeommil their go
vernment, to men of such a dailardly spirit. He
will find that our government knows how to assert
its tights,and he will know, whaj his Hudson cor
refpondeut already knows, that this government
has the firm and unequivocal support of the Amer
ican people.
WheTher these two learned correspondents un
derstand this treaty and .condemn it fiom a tonvic
tion, that it is a bad one, I submit to the reader;
but surely those who pretend to regard the voice of
the people, or to refpedt governments originating
from the will of the people, (hould cease to clamor
about the treaty. It has been made, deliberately
discussed, and finally ratified by the conttituted au
thorities. It has had to encounter pafiion and pre
judice, and it has furmountcd every obdacle and af
ter full and deliberate difcuflion, it has been appro
*ed by the great body of the American people.—
Surely now it ought to reft in peace, after such a
man imitation 01 the public will, as ha 3 been made
Lj numerous-petitions to Congress, and by the
