We come nny fo camost taparfan! qrostion, Ts
thors acy pest reason to believe that Great Britain in-
tended to insist ony ob rer j rlicle than Peace with
the ladians an} sceurtly vor thetr possessions, so that
they mich! be a perorment barrier to secure the Ca-
nidian provers?
Inthe frst conferrence the Britis opened some
gubiects of discussion, on7 of them only, the Indian
territory aud peace they declared a sine qua non or
jn‘is pensrble. Without that, they would make no
peace. Tis in common sense was dechirins that the
others were not indispens) ble. Pthey bad afterwards
without a chance of circumstances brought forward
either of the olhers as indispensable conditions it
would have been decm sd unfair or perfidions.
Our ministers ndraitly with a view to create doubts
asked them whether any of (he other arlicles were
also intended as a sine qua non.
Ifthe British were instructed to make them such,
there was no reason why they should not avow it.
They bad before done sotrankly, when aeked whether
View original the Tndian perce on? Indian boundary were both sire
qua non.—They answered yes.
Batif they had replicd to the other question, that
{hey were nof, it would have been committing thein-
selyes to our Ministers and giving up the questions.
Doras soonas our nevrociators should knovy that they
vere not instructed to insist upon then, they would
lave refused to Viscuss (hem,
The British Ministers warily took the only course
lot totrem. They answered when you have replied
(oour proposed sine qua non it will be time enough fo
(alls ofanothor ts We have been (say they) suflicicatly
exphiett™ and so they were. They stated four sub-
jects of which oue only they declared to be a sine qua
Jnconftyrrnvioref this inthe lost letter of the Brit-
ish) Miisters. afer thoy receircd their new tnstruc-
tious the: roer tothe Tadians peace and teundary
only asa sine qua non,
The other points must therefore be considered only
as sa'yocts offsred for discussion, tu be inodificd, or
wholly conceded eccording as our SLintsters inigbt
press other claims and demands.
With this view of the subject which Lam persiv-
ed is corecet, tt ts alryost unecessary to discuss the
other proposidons., It ie wholly uncertain whether
every one of then: would not have given up. It ts
prob:ble they world have becn modified ta such
away as to meet our vicws, tatcrests, feelings and

Is Unis true? cance deny it? we who boasted we
could toke Canada ta four months. She has beeu
gue netetbour there for SO years. Wave we ever
fel or expericneed danger tious her?
Vhe reasons slo asstened are honorable to us.
They admit our rising ereatuess, our formidable
power they expressa fearofus. Is this desrading ?
surely not. But it was solemnly true that we are
dangerous neighbours to her, and this war as prov-
ed it.
W hat she demands is only that we should do what
we did before the war. For 25 years wo had not a
ship of war on either lake; we had only the misera-
ble fortress of Niagara, (iniserable I call it from per-
sonal observation) with a feeble garrison of 70 men.
—As to Miahilimehinack and Detroit, [ presume no
man will call them fortresses though they had the
name of forts. | 3

(hat anition of 7 naillions of people are afriid of be-
tng uuarmed ona frontier against a colony, a sca‘-
tered colony of 250,000 Frenehmen. Great Orifain
never did, and in case of an honest peace, never will
maintain a force in these provinces of more than
3,600 men.
If then we can never be afraid of her: if her sab-
rect have had dreadful cause to be afraid of our irrup-
tions, is there any thing so degrading in adutitting
that she ouvht to be afraid, and is afraid of us? And
therefore that we will keep no force ready to pounce
dlown upon her unsuspecting colonists.
To those who wish when we have a peace that $¢
may be durable, | yould add one word more. If we
mamtain a force on the lakes Brilatn) must do so too.
From the irritations, the remembrance of past wrangs,
the bitter spirit resulting from the late predatory war
on the frontier, collisions and quarrels must be im-
evitable. Our peace may be disturbed as soon as it
tsmade. If we haveno force Britain will soon with
draw hers. But f add there is little doubt, ifour
Ministers had iact (ie British offers ina spirit of cone
cilintion, this article would have been modified tu a
mutual demolition of torts and disivantling of ships.
There rematus but ore other question. Is this an
unusual stipulition? Have not nitions offen demands
ed, and great powerful proud nations, unsubdued,
unconquered, perfectly equal, offen granted such
conditions for the sake of anoiding futare quarrels 2
When men are quarrelliins, the first and most rae
(ional sympton of reconciliation is to lay aside wea
pons of offence.

of Nix a Chapelle and of Paris in 1792. In this late
ter treaty Louis NV. added a still more extrao. Jiny-
Ty Co. dition, he agreed to demolish the forts on the
land side. Great Britain dictated (aat peace. By
the aid of the brave people of Massachusetts and
Connecticut she had conguered the Canadas, aud
hunibled Spain by taking the Island of Cubs. Yee
even Drilatn stipulated to case the fears of Spiin, to
demolish a// her fortificationsin the Bay of Honduras,
Yous the conqueror did this. His “lost Christian
Majesty the King of France also agreed not to erect
fortifications or keep troops in certain parts of his
East India possessions. FT could multiply in (hese
examples without number.
These are enouch becanse they relate fo the tivo
ereatest powers in the world, and one o, them too this
very enciy then a congucror.
Is it derogatory fo us to arree to that which these
nations even in success agreed to? did Tsay agree ta
it? itis doubtful whether it would have been insisted
ons but ifit had been it would have promoted and
perpetuated peace. The truth is, such a deynand is
complimeutary to usas it provesa dread oF our po. ear.
