The Commissioners of Charlotte request
those who attend divine worship in the Brick
Church in Charlotte, to apply to Mr. Green
Kendrick and engage their pews for the present
iir consequence of a debt that is due by the
corj)oration for part of the eypense of building
the Church, the Commissioners are obliged to
lease the pews to assist in discliarging it. It is
therefore hoped tiiat every person who attends
worship there, will take a pew or make some
provision that they may have a regular place to

often made, that the ow ners of pews cannot get

To the Right Honorable George Canningy First

Sir ; In my last letter I gave you an
accouut of the debate-on the resolution
reported by the committee of commerce
in the Senate of the United States. I
did this to show you, that, in referring
to the “debates” in our Congress, to jus
tify your abrupt and unprecedented con
duct in issuing tlie Order in Council of
July last, you not only resorted to a
most irregular mode of arj^unicntalion,
but weie vvholly uninformed of the
state of facts.
I now proceed to the subject of Gen.
Smith’s bill, introduced immediately af
examined) that those acts must havd
been and were understood by us, and
that we knowingly and deliberately re
jected their provisions.
In more particular reply to the para
graph just cited from Mr. Gallatin’s let

petition) that it
“ Prayed ‘ for the removal of the sev
eral restrictioiis imposed by the Ameri
can act of 1823 not of ‘ the discrimina

You then add, that “ it was against
the prayer of this petition that the d^
cision of the American Legislature, at
the close of the session, was taken.”

tune which has signalized every other
statement of fact contained in your let
ter, you mistake bolh the character and
the fate of this bill.
1 beg leave to repeat the very impor
tant remark, that in this as in several
other errors which I have pointed out in
your despacth of January, 1827, you
have not only fallen into mistakes of fact,
but it is these mistakes of fact which
you offer to JVlr. Gallatin and to the A-
merican Government, in justification of
the rash policy of breaking up the di
rect intercourse between the British
West Indies and North America.
When, therefore, I minutely point
out these, your errors, it is not merely
the exercise of a close criticism upon
your letter to Mr. Gallatin, although
the tone of that letter destroys your
title to any thing but rigid justice in
construing it. Lat in exposing you-r
errors, I put the British Government
in the wrong, and the American Gov
ernment in the right, in the controver

A considerable part of Mr. Gallatin's
answer is taken up in showing you thpt
the terms of the acts of Parlian^ent of
June and July, 1825, were hot and could
not have been, for reasons which he
states, untierstood by the American
Government. In allusion to the para
graph, which I have just quoted from
your letter, he remarks as follows : —

last session of Congress, and to which
Mr. Canning has alluded, affords an ad
