Yoffc and Charleffon, or through the prifons of England, where thoufands were ftarved to death be- ctufe they would r.oj enjift in the Britifh army to their fwords againft the lives and liberties of countrymen. Such has been the conduct of rttifli nriftccrats, and altho* the numbers who id in America were not fo great as thofe of In- he manner and caufe of their fufferints, not fupportable. It's. Burke and Sheridan, with a rage and zeal unparalled in hiftory, have united the powers of eloquence, abufe and crimination againft Pvlr. Haf- tings, wlii'e Rawdon and Cornwall's ate thanked for their fervices. S.ich is the ftnnge infatuation which impels thefe political Knight crrants to ap- plaud the crmics of one man, for lefs than which they feek the life of another--but Rawdon arid Coi v- waliis were Peers of the Realm. Burke and Sheridan were fquiuting at tides, and while, by the death of Raftings, they cotild atone for the politics! fins of the government, that government cuuld net have refufed a reward for fuch fervice*. l When the p inciples of the Britifh government are recommcniufcj, we are eJLcx»ui fe -{irviitrS - j;'ni^k quiries vvITI be ncc< 'arily directed to their herfcdita- ly ariftccracy, if the fame temper for rapine, death, and devaftatioo has there as univerfal a prevalence, as with the few whom we have known in this country, our contempt fviil be roofed, ant we fhall not fail to pity the Britifh nation, who are not obliged to fubmit to the pcefcriptive domain of fuch hereditary mifanth ropes» It has been faid, by a wife and great man that in fill countries, a refpect fhould ;>e paid to :he well .other inftance, that in all countries there e better bom than others- So far as the good birth of Saul, who was king by confent, and the hand fome ft man of Ifrael, and the ill birth of Mcphibofheth, his grandfon, whoconfeffed him- fclf no better than a dead i\og, will correfpond with the doctrine, I will agre^ ; beyond this as an admirer of the rights of men I never will. Other diftinct ions muft never take place in this country, they are contrary to its genius 5 indeed I might go further, and ufing the language of Mr. Sterne when he fpoke of the probable death of Le Fevre, fay by ****** thev never fliall. Again I will examine the conduct ofthe Britifh nation, as comports with the law of nature and nations, relating to a people with whom they were in treaty of peace, whofe privileges were in all re- fpe/ts as a nation equal to their own, and who without having provoked were wantonly attacked and plundered without difcri mi nation or mercy. The fate of the Ifland of St. Eu&ftia is well known, and St. Euftatia, will often rife in j'^lg- ment again ft the admirers of the Britifh government. This Ifland was owned by the Dutch nation, who were at peace not only with the Britifh., but with all the world, at a time when they were pur- fuing their mercantile objects under that general ianclum, a Bii'.ifh fleet and army under Admiral Rodney made a fudden attack, poftlffed the Ifland, and converted tvery thing which was valuable to private emolument. Acts of barbarity and cruelty were there committed at which human nature fliud- ders, and Rodney foon after this high achievment, was deemed ofthe fuperior order, was cieated a Peer, and this for doing that againft which every honeft man would turn his face with horror and indignation. This violatfr of every principle of natural and divine law, was Suddenly elevated above the heads of other people, and the nation taught to bow down t<i him, as to their divine hereditary prefcriptive lifter. If Mr. Burke or Publicola can juftify the tranf- acti ;ns of the Lords Dunmore, Cornwallis, Raw* dm and Rodney, then theBruifh court will be juf • tifiahle, for having failed to inflict on them fuch marks of public punifhment as would fit the magnitude of their offences. Thus having ftatfid a few facts, as to the few of the Britifh anfiocracy whom we have known in this country, I can fafely truft the conclubon to my countrymen, they, as I do, will hold him in de- te£h*tiote, who either by fophifiry, ingenuity or in- trigue, firdl even invite us to paliate their crimes jwuch iefs ijnbibe their principles.
