Resolved, ‘hat a committee be appointed to enquire ine
to the expediency of providing by law for the indemnity or
relief of those who have suffered losses by the irruption of
the enciny onthe Niagarafronutier ; and that the committee
have leave to report by bill or otherwise. Ordered to lie
on the table.
Lhe French Minister in America.
Mr. Manson appears, by the American papers, to have
brought his Government into the most degrading of all si-
tuations, to be despised and insulted, even by the Power
for whose interests he went tu war; for it is uo longer,
wow, We appreheded, a wiatter of doubt with any One, that
America was plunged into a war which this country in
order that she might propitiate Bonaparte. We have ale
ready meplioncd that the President had reeeived a very Ine
solent letter from the French Minister, Gen. ‘Turreau.
This letter has been published in one American paper, and
other papers, which we have received, comment upu. aud
give extracts from it. ‘The American official paper. /he
Notional Intclligencer, is one. ‘The letters professes to
be written by the Minister of France, in his official capa.
city, to Robert Smith, Esq. Secretary of the United Sta.
tes; and the following is the substauce of it as given in
these papers.—“*Gen. Terreau, Minister of France ‘in the
name of his master, the Emperor and King Napoleon,?
and fof the whole Empire of Frauce,’ declares our Goe
verhinent *lovks lo nothing in ils (reaties, but to the ine
lerests of dls forergn commerce,’ and by contradistinguish.
ing it from the unudversal/y juss, enlarged, and liberal po.
licy of France, unequivocally charges our Government
with tajustice, neggardly selfishness, cramped ignorance,
and tlberality, the intorms the Secretary, that France
‘Sicants no treaty of comerce’? with us, and that, if we
want one, we must pay for such SSunmcriied? coud
cension in “political sacrifices,” that isy by joining Naw
poleon ino his continental wars against Boglaod and her
Allies. dhe American people are depicted asa blind sabe

dhe sacrcd persons of her august representative, lhe Km-
peror anil hing Napoleon. The rest of the letter is a
partial aud unjust recital of Soffeuces’? he maintains France
has rece ved of the Government aud the people of the
United States.”
Such is (he substance of Gen. Turrcan’s letter to the
American Secretary of State. Now what was the manner
in which it wasreccived? Our readers, perhaps, are pre-
pared to hear, that the American President, at last,
“‘threw off his patience’? and his submission to France,
and, ‘‘strinped of unwhorty disguises,” sent away this
insolent Frenchman from the American territories, and
made a bold and indignant appeal to his countrymen.
No such thing. Meanness never dictated a more degrad-
ing step than the American Government resorted to.
The papers inform us, that “two of our most eminent
(what eminence!) political characters were successively
sent to Turreau to persuade him to withdraw his letter,
but in both instance he persisted in justifying his remarks,
and refused to withdraw his letter; that at last, however,
after a considerable Japse of time, he had it withdrawn by
his Secretary, without any apology.’ ~-And ‘Turreau re.

A dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was last
Night received at |arl Dathurst’s Oihee, addressed to hits
Lordship by General! sir Thomas Graham, datud Meraem
Feb. 6, 1514.
Mead-quarters, Mervem, Feb. 6, 1814.
My J.orp—l should have been happy to have had to
announce to your Loidship, chat the nuvement on Ante
werp, fixed by Gen. Bulow for the 2d inst. had produces
a greater effect; but the waut of ume, and of gicater
means, will account to your Lordship for the disappoint.
ment of our hopes of amore satisfactory result; for Gen,
Bulow received (alter we had got the betier of alt thy
greater obstacles an Gie way of duking a position near tie
tuwn) orders to proceed to the southward to act in con.
cert with the grand army ; and the state of the Weather,
for some time back, not only prevented my receiving the
supplics of orduaice and ordnance stores from England,
but made itimpossible to land much of what was on buard
the trausports ncar Williatostadt, the ice cutting otf ali
communication with them.—I have, however, sincere plea.
sure in assuring your Lordship, thatevery part of the ser.
vice was couducied by the Officers at the head of the dif.
ferent departinents, with all the zeal and inteiligence pos.
sib.e.— Lo meke up for the waut of our own artillery, a
the seiviccable Dutch mortars, with all the atwmuuition
that couJd be collected, were prepared at Williaistadt,
and, on the evening of the first, the troops of the first and
second divisions, that could be spared from other service
were collected at Braeschut, and neat morning this villaze
(fortified with niuch labour ever since our furmer attack )
was carried in the most gallant style, in a much shorter
time, and with much less loss than IF could have believed
possible.—Major-Gen. Gibbs, commanding the 2d divi-
sion (in the absence of Majos-Gen. Mackenzie, confived
by a dangerous fall from his horse), ably seconded by
Major-Gen. ‘Taylor,and by Lt.-Col. Herries, coumande
ing Major-Gen. Gibbs’s brigade, conducted tlus attack,
in which all the troops engaged behaved with the usual
spirit and intcepidity of British soldiers.x—I feel particu.
larly indebted to the Othcers already named, and also to
Li.-Col Cameron, commanding the detachments of the
three battalions of the 25th; to Lt.-Col. Hompes¢ hy with
the 95. regt.; to Major A. Kelly, with the 56th; and
Major Kelly, with the 73d; forthe distinguished manner
In which chose corps attacked the left and centre of the vile

Grya. Day lor, with the 52d, under Lt..Col, Gibbs, the
View original Soth, under Major Macaliser, and the 78th, under Lieut.-
Col. Lindsay, marching to the right, and directly on the
mill of l’erdinand’s Dyke, threatened the enemy’s commu.
nication froin Merxem towards Autwerp.—T wo pieces of
caunon, and a considerable number of prisoners, fell into
our hands.—No time was lost in marking out batterics,
which, by the very great exertions of the artillery, uuder
Lt.-Col. Sir G. Wood, and the Engineers, under Lt.-Col.
C. Smyth, and the good will of the working partics, were
completed by half-past three p. m. of the 3d.—The batte-
ries, as p. margin*, opened at that hour. During the
short trial of the fire of that evening, the defective state of
the Williamstadt mortars and ammunition was too visible.
—Our means were thus diminished and much time was lost,
as it was not till 12 at noon the following day (the ith),
(hat the fire could be opened again. +—That day’s fire dis.
abled tive of the six 24-pounders, Yesterday the fire was
kept up all day with as p. margint. The practice was
admirable, but there was not asuilicient number of shells
falling to prevent the enemy from extinguishing the fire
whenever it broke out among the ships, and our fire ceas-
ed entirely at sun-sct yesterday.—It is impossible for me
to speak too highly of the inucfatigable exertions of the
(wo branches of the Ordnance De artment.—I have much
reason to be satisfied with the steadiness of the troops, and
the attention of the Officers of all ranks, during ‘he couti-
nuance of this service. Detachments of the rilic corps did
the most advauced duty, under the able direction of Lt.-
Co}. Cameron, in a way that gave security tu tue batteries
on Ferdinaud’s Dyke, and though this line was enfiiaded,
and every part of the village under the range of slot and
shells from the enemy, Taw happy to say the casualties,
on the whole, have not been numctous.—As soon as CVET)
thing is cleared away, we shal. move back into sucht cane
fonments as TP have concerted with Gen. Bulow.—1L can.
not couclude this dispatch without expressing my admira.
tion of the manner in which Gen. Bulow formed the dis.
position of the movement and supported this attack.—The
ehemy were in great furce on the Deurne and Berchen
roads, but were every where d iven by the gallait Prus-
tans, thongh not without considerable lass. —L have the

Sin—ITaving obtained information that the enemy had
determined on driving the country between Fort George
and the advance, and was carrying off the loyal part of
the inhabitants, notwithstanding the inclemency of the
season, I deemed it my duty to make a rapid and forced
march towards him with the light troops under my com.
mand, which not only frusteated his designs, but com.
pe.led him to evacuate Fort George, by precipitately cros,
sing the river and abandoning the Niagara fronticr. Qn
learning our approach, he laid the town of Newark in
ashes, passing over his cannon and stores, but failing ia
an attempt to destroy the fortifications, which are eyj_

the miseries which the unfortunate inhabitahts of Newark
had been made to suffer upon the evacuation of Fort
George.—The villages of Lewiston, Black Rock, and
Buflalo, have accordingly beeu burncd.—At the same time
that His Excellency the Commander of the Forces sine
cerely depreeates this node of wartare, he trusts that it
will be sufficient to call the attenGou of every candid and
impartial person, both amongst ourselves and the enemy,
to the circumstances from which it has ariscn, to satisfy
them that this departure from the established usages of
war has originated with America hoeself, and that to her
alone are justly chargeable, ali the aw ful and unhappy
consequences which have hitherto lowed, aud are likely
to result romit.—It isnot neces: iry lo advert to the con.
duct of the troop employed ou the American coast, in
jonjnuction with this Majesty’s squadrra under Adiniral
Sic John. B. Warran, since, as they were neither within
the command, vor subject to the controul of His Mxcel-
Jency, their acts cannot be ascribed to him, even af they
watted that justification which the circumstances (hat oc.
casioned them sv maply aflord.—It will be sufficient for
the present purpose, aud in order to mark the character otf
the war, ascarcied on upon the J/ronticr of these provinces,
to trace the line of conduct observed by }lis Excellency,
and the troops under his command, since the commence-
ment of hostil.ties, and to contrast it with that of the
encemy.—The fist invasion of Upper Canada took place
in July, 1812, when the Amertcan forces, under Brig.
Gen. Hull, crosed over and touk possession of Sandwich,
where they began to man fest a disposition su different
from that of a maynanimons enemy, and which they have
peculiar resentinent, the loyal su bicets of lis Majesty,
and io dooming their properly to plunder aud Coltlaxiae
tiou. Various instances of this kiod occurred both at
Saudwich and in its neighbourhood, at the very period
when Ilis M Wye: ty ’s standard was waving upon (he lort of

and property of those who tad submitted to it. Within

lowing year, when the success which attended the daring
and gallant enterprise against Ozdensburgh had placed that
populous and florishing village in our possession, the ye.
nerosity of the British character was again Conspicuous,
in the scrupulous preservation of every article which could
be considered as private property ; such public buildings

mer, by the fortunate result of the enterpris against Platts.
burgh, that town was for several hours in the complete
possession of our troops, there not being any force in the
BeivhDourhood which could attempt a resistance. Yet
even there, under circumstances of strong tem) tation, and
when the recent example of the eneniy in the wanton des.
truction at York, of private property, and buildings not
wsed for military purpose, must have been fresh in the
ecollection of the forces amployed on that occasion, and
would have justified a retajiation on their part, their for-
bearance was strongly manifested, and the directions Eis
Excellency had given to the commander of that expedition
sO scrupulously obeyed, that scarcely can another in-
stance be shewn in which, during a static of war, and un-
der similar circumstances, an enemy, $0 completely under
the power and at the mercy of their adversaries, had so
little cause of complaint.
During the course of the same summer, Forts Schlosser
and BlagietOCK were surprised and taken by apart of the
View original forces under the command of Major-Gen. de Rotlenburg
on the Niagara frontier, at both of which places petsu val
property was respected, and the public buildings alone
were destroyed.—It was certainly matter of just avd rea.
sonable expectation, that the humane and tiberal course
of conduct pursued by Ilis Iexcellency on those difierent
occasions, would have had its duc weight om the Antr.
can Government, and would have Jed ts to have a! stained,
in the further prosecution of the war, from any acts o
wantonness or violence, which could oly tend unneces.
sarily to add to its ordinary calamities, and to Liing Gown
upon their unoflending citizens a retaliation, wlica, thouga

cellency’s cxample of moderation, or by any of tue cone.
seguences tu be apprehended from the adoption of such
barbarous measures, the American forces at Fort George,
acting as there is every reason to believe, under the or.
ders, or with the approvation of their Government, for
some tine previous to their evacuation of that fortress,
various pretensions, burned and destioyed the farm houses
and buildings of many olf the respectable aud peaceable
inhabitants of that nehbourhood.—But the fall measure
of this species of barbarity remained to be completed at a:
scason when allits hocrors might be moce fully and kend.

of it. Tt will hardly be credited by tuose who shal here.

A bout the year 1730, Mr. Edward Walpole (afterwards
Sir Edward, Kuight of the Bath) returned from his tra-
vels on the Continent, where the munificence of his father,
Sir Robert Walpole, the premier of Kugland, had enabled
him to make a brilliant figure; and so very engaging was
he found by the ladies, that he had no other appellation
in Italy than that of **¢he handsome Englishman.” Mr.
Walpole had lodgings taken for him, on his return, at a
Mrs. Rennie’s, a child’s coai-maker, at the bottom of
Pall-Mail. On returning from visits, vr public places,
be often passed a quarter of an hour in that with the young
women of the shop. Among them was one who had it in
her power tomake him forget the Italians, and all the
beauties of the English court. Her name was Clement;
her father was at that time, or soon after, postmaster at
Darlington, a place of 501, p. annum, on which he subsist-
ed alarge family. ‘This young woman had been bound
apprentice to Mrs. Reanie, and was employed in, the
usual duties of such a situation, which she discharged (as
