From the Salem Uazkttk. ADDRESS VO VIIB PSOPLB OF tllS UMttD SfAVSS. No. XI. FELLOW CITIZENS, THE Text furnished by the Virginian delegate to Congress, which was recited in the two preceding numbers, requires some further comments. ' As a consequence necessarily resulting frf m that gentleman's declaration, I remarked, That besides the essential interests of numerous portions of our citizens more immediately, concerned, sacrificed to the views of parly leaders, the great interests and the honour! of our country must be slighted or abandoned, lest those gentlemen should lose their places, the power and the emoluments of office. But 1 may be asked, What hnrard to their popularity would arise from their taking those measures which the public welfare, the honour and safety of the nation, imperi-ofy require ? I answer, That as the great body of the people, the nation, must necessarily desire that the national interests, honour and safety may be promoted and secured ; of course they will approve the measures which they believe are calculated to effect those great and patriotic purposes. But if the nation have been deceived ; if they hnve been taught to believe, and do believe, that the measures which alone can maintain and se cure those essential objects, would be most in. jurious and destructive ; if to the men whom the people have long " delighted to. honour," may be applied the denunciation of the prophet" Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil ; that put darkness for light and light for darkness ; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter ;" then what will the people approve The pernicious measures of their deceiving leaders. Even in the days of Washington they alarmed the fears of the people, that the system ot auminisirauon which he approved, was calculated to introduce monarchy and nobility, from which, by the revolution, they had recently been freed. Mr. Jefferson, in his memorable letter to his friend Mazzei, dared to represent " the Executive Power," meaning Wasmingtok, in whom, as president, the executive power was then vested, " the Judiciary," and " all the Officers of Government," as eneaetd in a consoirncv arainst republicanism '. " Instead (says he) of Hint noble love of liberty and of mat repuuiiuan guverniiieni wtucii wrvicu uj triumphantly thioughthc dangers of the war, an English monarchicnl-aristocratical party has risen up whose avowed object is to impose on us the substance, as thev have already eiven us me form of the British government By this " form of the British government" meaning tne constitution of the unttea oiates, which he and his partisans now profess so much to admire. The people were taught to hate every thing pertaining to Englind, and to love every thing pertaining to .France : That the chief magistrate of England being h king, must therefore b a tyraiu rulinit over slave' : While trance, caning herselt a republic, must be free, and her rulers the! patri- otic euardians of the peoples rights. No ' connection, therefore, no treaty, not even of amity and commerce for our awn benefit, and for the settlement of old disputes, must be formed with England, lest the purity of republicanism should be defiled by her "whore? ' doins." In the same tetter to Mazzei, above mentioned, Mr. Jefferson represented many ot the most distinguished citizens ot tne uni ted States as h.iving become apostates from republicanism ; " men (lie says) who were Solomons in counsel and Samsons in combat, but whose hair-had been cut oft by the whore igland " Meaning that England had cor- ruitca wiem, anil so prevented me exeruon of their former wisdom, virtue and energy in administering the government. There is no room to doubt that Mr. Jetterson compre hended Washington in this audacious re proach. Before the publication of this letter in the United States it was first published by Mr. Jetterson s trench friends in Paris. I Mr. Jefferson seldom, if ever, passed Mount Vernon without calling, or sending an apolo gy tor omitting it-: but after its publication these civilities entirely ceased, a visit then, he was sensible, would have been an insult not to be borne. But what waB the tvrannu under which the Britons groaned, and for submission to winch Americans were taught to think and call them slaves ? These slaves asserted and maintained the very liberties for which the sages and heroes of our revolution counselled, struggled, bled and died : they conten ded for their " birth rights" the rights of ,ngiisnmcn, in wmch we ana our lathers always placed our glory : the right by their representatives to participate in. the making ot their laws and ot giving and granting their own money for the public service ; the . right of trial by jury before nble and independent judges ; the right to the writ of Habeas Coriiis, which every Englishman may demand, and by virtue of which he is secured, as we are, by the same process, against unlawful arrests and imprisonments by ministers, military officers, or others , who abuse their power ; and with these rights they enjoy freedom of speech and of the press. In one word, of all the countries on the earth, the United States and the British Dominions alone are frue. The rights of Englishmen our fathers brought hither with them from England; and to that souutry we are indebted for all our practical ideas of freedom. And yet that is the country now the World's last hope on whose existence and independent power our own depend ns intelligent and reflecting democrats themselves well ' know, and some of them acknowledge but whose downfall and subjugation to France why of their, brethven appear heartily to desire. This letter to Maxzci was nroliaWy written in 1791, loon alter Mr. Jefferson quitted the department of State, " to avoid denting in icenes" which he could not contronl, and turn to Urn service of trance anil his own elevation to the Presidency, o well as in his fhihsophio retirement to Monti-cello. tTho first Congress which was nssemhled at New-York in 179, unanimously resolved, " That t .jnceblors, ulio first settled these Coloni wele, " lit the lime of their emigration from the mother country, entitled to all the rights, liberties and immunities of free anil natural boru subiecls within the realm of England. That by such emi gration thev hy no means fori-ilcd, surrendered, or lost any olthose rights." they also resolved, " That the foundation of English liberty nml of Mljrec Government, is, a right in the People lo participate in their lepjislsiuva council." And what arc the blessings of Frenchmen, .which scum so attractive in the eesof many of our citizens ! They arc such as these : lo be dragged in chains to the armies, that ihey may have the honour to endure all the miseries of war, to tight and to die, not for their CouNTrtr, but tor the boundless ambition of an unfeeling tyrant : to be wretched themselves, and the instruments to bring down misery anil ruin on all the nations round : to be taxed at his pleasure ; una it tuey delay payment, to have soldiers quartered upon them, eating up their substance until they can find the means of payment : to have their commerce destroyed, and . be deprived of all its comforts i to be beset by spies employed by the emperor to watch their words and actions j so that before a Frenchman dare open his mouth on any public affairs or any thing relating to the emperor, he looks round to sec if any suspicious person be present. And here he is often deceived. For since the French revolution, such has been the increas ed and general prostration of morals, such scope anu encouragement nave ueen given iu vices nnd crimes, that not unfrequen:ly the father betray" the son nnd the son the father ; and " a man s enemies are those ot his own house." In n word, the will of the imperial tyrAnt is law j nnd the most grievous oppressions are inflicted on the people. His decrees in hostility to commerce, have Bpread devastation in the trading towns and cities of France. Bordeaux, for instance, once so active and flourishing, with a population of upwards of a hundred thousand persons, has by the loss of its trade, lost half of its inhabitants. The like destruction and misery have visited Hol land, which had grown and existed by com merce, and all the other countries wnere wc French Emperor's sway is established. Amidst these mighty ruins spread over the nations of Europe, appears Napoleon's court, in pomp, in splendour, in luxury, surpassing all example ; and which the many millions plundered from the'eitizens of the U. States have contributed to support ; plunderings which no efficient means have been used by our own government to repress ; and the restoration, or indemnity for which have been but faintly asked. And how is this subserviency, this tame-ncss, this servility towards France to be accounted for ? In my second address I alluded to the general cause. That as Mr. Jefferson and his fellow labourers rose to power by inflaming the love of the people to France and their hatred, to England, they have also thought it nucesu iry to keep alive these passions, as the surest means for the continuance of their power. They represented the impartial system of Washington's administra-tioir as a ".system of ingratitude and injustice towards France, from which they would al ienate the people of the United States, to bring them under British influence." These re Mr. Jefferson's words in his letter lo Mazzei. And ns the tr'y of ingratitude to France and of British influence was well adapted to promote his ambitious views; its origin may well be ascribed to him. It corresponds with the slanders against Washing ton nnd Adams for which he afterwards paid his friend and correspondent the infamous James Thompson. Callender. With similar views his partisans keep up the cry to this day, Having thus led the body of the people into fatal errors "respecting the two great nations at war, and the character, and views of the citizejia who before, administered the gov., e'rnmeht, they dare riot undeceive thorn They Cannot now tell the people the tuutii, without justifying the sentiments and nolicv of their political opponents, the followers of Washington, and thus hazarding the loss oi incu uiuces anu power : anu meir measures, for the last four years especially, are in evidence that they would rMher sacrifice the rights, interests and honour of our country, ana put in jeoparay us liberty and muepen dence. Another means employed to undermine the federal administration was, the raising a ciamour against me taxes wnicn were nulis-pensablo for the support of the public faith in regard to the debts incurred by the' revolutionary war for carrying on, during several years, nn expensive war against the Indians, for the defence and protection of the frontiers nnd for providing the means of protecting our commerce and our ccuntry ngsinst the aggressions and hostile views of France. Although no government can exist without revenue and no revenue be attainable without taxes yet no person of any experience can be ignorant, that the levying of taxes is one of the must ungracious acts of a government. It has therefore been the policy of most governments to raise a great (often the greatest) portion of their revenues by indirect taxes; especially on the articles imported from foreign countries, which are first paid by the merchant importers, and then by them added to and blended with the prices of the articles imported ; so that the people at large who use and consume them, cannot distinguish the taxes from the prices of the articles ihcmselves ; and being thus paid insensibly, ihey occasion no murmurs or discontent': and the less, because as to many articles which nre more of luxury or convenience than necessity, they may be purchased or not at the pleasure of every citizen. But when a government' lnys direct taxes, for example, a certain sum on every man's head (thence called n poll or capitation tax) or certain sums on his house, his land, his horses nnd cattle he knows precisely the amount of his taxes i and if these, ba heavy, discontent is not an unusual consequence. Yet sometimes necessary wars (such as that of the American revolution) and defensive wars in general, are ot such extent nnd long continuance, as to require large revenues, and proportionnblv heavy taxes. Now if the whole cf the taxe's in such' cases were imposed upon goods imported from other countries, reat portions of them could never be collected : the temptation to run or smuggle the goods into the country, and thus evade the taxes altogether, would be so great, as with manv n he irre sistible. If, for instance, n tax,'(more commonly called nduly)on any imported article, be twenty live per cent (or one fourth) of its vuiue; ami ii mnv oe nrougnt on shore and concealed from the collectors, at n risk not exceeding ten or fifteen per cent, the proba bility is, mm large portions ot nil such goods will he smuggled in, without paying any duties at nil. The only remedy in this case is, to lower the duties on such articles, so as to approach in their'nmnunt, to the vnhw of the risk of smuirivlintr them. For then the mer chant will rather pay the duties than hazard his reputation as well ns his goods, for the small gain which might be made by smue- stni, i is ii wcu niiuwii ibci, teat in x. Britain,' where frequent wars have demanded immense revenues, that the duties on some goods imported were so high us to occasion very hxicnsivu smuggling, to the serious loss of revenue. And the government by lowering the duties actually collected mora money. 1 have gone into this detail to give some idea of the powerful reasons which induced Washington's administration, at a time when our revenues from commerce were comparatively small, and the public expenditures unavoidably great, to raise a p irt of the necessary revenues by other taxes than those on goods imported ; lest the increasing of (he latter to the extent ot the public wants, should put in jeopardy the whole system, by the temptation it would have given to smuggling. And that this policy was correct, is demonstrated by its effects ; for probably in no country in the world were the duties on goods imported so universally and honourably paid as in the U. States. The system fairly es tablished, and the habit ofregularpayingor.ee fixed, the same duties admitted of a gradual ;nu moderate increase. And had the same system 'been continued ; had not Mr.. Jefferson, with other- views than to save the persons and property of the People, caused the embargo to be imposed, that honourable pay ment ot duties would have been continued. But his total prohibition of trade, by which hundreds of thousands of our citizens gained a livelihood, being long continued (for a tem porary embargo would not have answered the purposes of Bonaparte, in forming his system tn destroy the commerce and the power of G. Britain) produced such general distress as lobe no longer tolerable. The embargo' laws were broken, the practice of smuggling introduced, and the.morals ot the people corrupted. Indeed if Washington could rise from the dead, and devote another forty-five-years to the-service. ot his country, and administer -the government with his unsullied purity and patriotism he could not repair the waste of virtue, and-banish the corruption of morals, introduced in Mr. Jefferson's ten-years administration. But to return. When- Mr. Jefferson had. paved the way for his ascending to the Presidency, by various arts, among others by encouraging or countenancing the popular dis- contants respecting taxes ; one of his first acts as President was, to lulhl the expectation generally and industriously excited to increase his popularity of a repeal of the in-r ternal taxes, which he accordingly recommended and effected. Fortunately for him, he entered on the Presidency at a time when the U. States were in the enjoyment of peace, and when they were (as he himself said) " in the full tide of successful experiment, under. tne government which had so tar kept us tree and firm"; and when our " Agriculture, Manufactures, Commkkck and Navigation, the four pillars of our prosperity,-!-" were in the most flourirhing condition ; and, when our revenues rapidly increasing, rendered practicable a diminution of the taxes But whether such a total repeal was correct wiietner sound policy, ill . reference to future contingencies of war or essential reductions of commerce, .did not require some dis crimination and reserve, Mr Jefferson did not consider ; or if he did, every thing was made to yield to his personal views at the moment. The . very prosperous state of our commerce and navigation, when Mr. Jefferson.became President, aiAile .it was, JefUunsJiackled by our own government, justified, perhaps suggested his remark, , that " they were then most thriving when left most free to individual enterprize."t Bonaparte had a little before entered on his political career ns First Consul of the French Republic ; and commerce was still allowed to " thrive." It was not till November 1806, after he had overturned the Prussian Monarchy, that he formed his ' Continental System," for restricting commerce or annihilating it, directly for the purpose of crippling or destroying the commerce of G. Britain, which he considered as the vital principle of her power. To render this system effectual, he said " its execution must be complete." " The principal powers of Europe had adopted it." The concurrence of the U. States (whose commerce then surprised that of any other nation, that of Great-Britain excepted) was necessary to render the execution of Bonaparte's system complete. And within less than three months afterwards, and in four days after the arrival of dispatches at Washington, by Mr. Jefferson's special messenger from Paris, his embargo was recommended to Congress, and the bill for imposing it passed in the Senate on the snine day. The unpopularity of the internal taxes (however necessary aiid prudent in their establishment) we have seen that Mr. Jefferson well understood. Vet the direct tax, on houses, lands. Sec. originated, if I mistake not, with Mr. Jefferson's own party ; and I believe Mr. Madison (then in the house of representatives) reported a resolution for the di rect tax. The journals of Congress (which I have not at hand) will show. Perhaps It was an artifice to add to the existing unpopularity of the federal administration respecting internal taxes. A directtaxwaslaid.inexactcon-' fortuity with the constitution,1 whicn declares, that representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned from the several states according to. their respective numbers, or population. It. was then said by Mr. Jefferson's partisans, that the taxes ought to be direct, that the people might know m&feel what they paid. But these gentlemen have since taken care to repeal every such tax ; and now dare not propose any tax which the ficofile can know and feel. Instead of which, they have contemplated n vast addition to the duties already laid on imported goodseven at the hazard of encouraging smuggling, which would occasion losses probably beyond such legislative additions. Possibly the fear of this may hitherto have prevented the projec ted increase of the duties. Instead of whirl,. or of any other sort of taxation, they have had , cwui sc, wi nme oj peace, to tne borrowing of In his lettepr of Ort. R.
