UOIU'KT I. DINKJINS. Charlotte, April CU, \ '626. [From the Boston Patriot.] LETTER X. To the Right Honorable George Conning^ First Lord of the Treasury, &c: Sir : You observed in your letter to Mr. Gallatin, that, “ The only effect of this suspension (viz. the omission of all the British Colonial authorities to apply the act of Parliament to ihe commerce of the United States) was the continuance of the benefits of the then existing state of things to the United States for nearly a twelvemonth longer than they would otherwise have enjoy ed it.” I have shown you in my last letter, that this remark was altogether irrele vant to the matter in hand. The ques tion is not whether the continuance of this state of things was beneficial or not to the United States; but whether they were not fully authorized to infer from the fact, that none of the British colon ial authorities understood the act of Ju ly 1825 to apply to the United States, that it really was not intended to apply to them. You very judiciously evade the task of showing that this was not a fair in ference. Instead of doing this, you say “ That continuance was permitted by the Britiih Governiiient, mainly in consideration of the then pendency in the Legislatnre of the U- nited States, of the resolution hereinbefore mentioned, (or conforming to the conditions of the act of 1825.” 1 iiave become weary of charging you with the direct misstatement of impor tant facts. I beg to repeat, that I as cribe it merely to the haste in which your despatch must have been written, and to a sort of proud and genteel dis dain of patient investigation. You say the British Government sanc tioned the conduct of the colonial gov ernments in permitting the trade to re main open, on accoimt of “ the pen dency of the resolution hereinbefore mentioned.” I have shown you that no such reso lution as you describe was ever moved So subtly is this web of argumenta tion woven, that nothing but the closest attention will suffice to unfold it. The reader, who will but yield me this in tention, will not, I trust, regret it. On hearing that there w’as a bill be fore the Senate to repeal the discrimin ating duty, (for that is what you refer to, though you confound it with a reso lution which w’as moved in the House three months before) the British Gov ernment (it seems) came to the belief that Congress would not separate with out passing that bill. “ In that case,” you go on, “an instruction was sent out to Mr. Vaughan,” to do what? To ad mit us in general terms to the privile ges of the act of 1825 } No. To give us the right conceded of trading from the colonies to all other places (the mother country excepted)? No such thing. Mr. Vaughan w’as simply instructed to say, “in that case,” “ that the discrim inating duties imposed upon American ships and their cargoes in the West In dies should'imme^liately cease.” I beg your c?reful attention to this, because your partisan presses in En gland, and ours in America, have ve hemently maintained that the passage of Gen. Smith’s bill would have doue no such thing. But this is not all. Even the withdraw- ing of your discriminating duties w;is not to be bought simply by the repeal of ours You demanded much more, even for that concession. I earnestly beg the attention of my countrymen to this fact, that if Gen. Smith’s bill had passed, it would not even have procured the re moval of your discrimating duties. What is your language ? “ In that,” (viz. that Congress had passed the bill for the repeal of the discriminating duties,) and, upon re ceiving an assurance from the American Government that the restrictions and charges on British shipping and British ' What then was the meaning of these new special instructions to Mr. Vau ghan? This is the meaning : that when you stint them, t>ie idea had not yet occurred to you, that the act of July, 1825, waS to break up the negotiation with this country. This was an after thought^ dexterously caught up by you, to sootho the clamors of your shipping interest. So far from brf'aking up the negotia-^ tion, so far from trking the matter, oa* supposing it taken, out of the subsisting’ (though suspended) negotiation, you in structed Mr. Vaughan to resume that negotiation. You toll us what those in structions were. You say, in case ivo repealed the discriminating duties, Mr. Vaughan was to write tlte Secretary of State a note, telling him tha^- if the Gov ernment of the United Staterfw’ould far ther assure you, that the other restric* tions should be removed, that then your discriminating duties should cease. And yet a few lines farther on, you fin'd the countenance to say, you are “ At a loss to understand on what ground it? was assumed at Washington, that there would be, at alltimt s, an unabated disposition, on tho part of the British Government, to ^i&ke th» trade of its West India colonieg the Jibject of a iliplomatic arrangement.” W'hy, sir, you must have written thitf sentence with the same penful of ink with which you wrote thesentence alittlo preceding this, telling us that you your self, at this very stage of the controver sy, gave Mr. Vaughan new instructions “ for a diplomatic arrangement” of the trade,! 6c pleased to acccpt, the assurances, &c.

No, Mr. Vaughan was, by special instructions^ to inform the Secret;^ry of State, that these dis- scriminating duties would cease. It is scarcely credible (though plain matter of fact) that you should through two-thirds of a long letter have argued, that the act of Parliament of 1825 oifer- ed, on certain conditions, to the United Slates, the repeal of all discriminating duties in your colonies, and u trade from those colonies to all the rest of the world ; that you should maintain that those conditions were so understood by Congress ; that you should speak of aa omission to puss Gen. Smith’s bill (proposing only a repeal of our duties) Public opinion is rapidly developing it self. From the East—from the VVes® and from the North, the news is most cheering. The violent hostility of tho leaders of the opposition to Domestic Industry as protected bv the Woolen Bill the defeat of the hundred and sixti/ thousand doUarSf Intereht saving bill—tho violent indiscriminate opposition to the Administration, right or wrong, and the bitter peraonal denunciation of the members of the Government, w^ho have grown old in the faithful performance ofpublic service are combined, producin^y strong reaction, and the People are ral lying with a firm and cheerful spirit iu defence of their country. Village Record, The editor of the New York Evening Post, who has recently enlisted as a com mon soldier in the ranks of the Oppo«i- tion, is at a loss how to comprehend th« conduct of Mr. Senator Van Buren who advocated the “ American system” at Albany last week, and thus appeared “ia favor of the project which he so strpngly opposed at Washington last winter,” This system of tactics is perfectly consistent with the whole scope of Mr. V.

In that case, and upon receiv ing an assurance from the American Govern ment that the restrictions and charges on Bri- tich shipping and on British colonial pro duce, would be withdrawn by tbe United Sl.ttPS, Mr. Vaiighan was authorized to deliver a note’to the American Secretary of Slate, de claring—that tbe discriminating duties imposed upon American ships anti their cargoes in the Uost Indies should inimet'.iatly cease.
