f the JJi itish Cabinet exls.t to the last breatb
of the late frantic Minister of Great-Britajn.
In laying before the Parliament of thi U-?
nited Kingdoms; the treaties of George;HI.

of the third coalition, the noble JLords pro-
tessea io Keep dbck tnose, wmca impgucy
might render injurious to the common cause.-
In our judgment, it they had been thus anx
ious, if they had hOf been infatuated to give
the French Emperor a pretext '. for the full ex
tent Of his ambition, every one ol those trea
ties, would have oeen suppressed, for they
give a basis much broader than any publicly
given heretofore on which Buonaparte may
round pretensions without end. ., V
The first articles, of the first treaties con
cluded upon, stipulating for the dismember
ment of Prance, openly confessed in the out
set of the British agreements were their foun
dation. And, as if the developement of those
articles had not sufficiently manifested the in
tentions of the two great autocrats,. Uussia
and Britain, the following was added :
." His Britannic Majesty and his'Macsty the
j Emperor of all the Russias agree, to make
common came against every power, which,
by the employment of its forces, or by two
uHimuiz un wuun wun i.'iance, may pre'
tend to raise essential obstacles to the de
yelopernent of those measuresj which the
high contracting parties may take, in or
der to obtain the object proposed by the
Tocbmijlete the whole, the speech of the
King of Great-Britain declared that the inti
macy ot union between him and Russia ought
to be- sirengthened. Such folly , and such
madness never before followed the councils
of any nation since the creation. Here is a
coalition of the most powerful nations in Eu
rope to invade and partition France, and they
declare that they will not merely crush . any
power .that attempts to aid France by. us!
force, but any nation or state that maintain
ed too intimate a connection with her. The
language was in efltct declared by the British
Ministry, when they protested that neutrali
ty in such a war as that of the French Uevo
lution was giving aid and countenance to the
disturbers of Jvurope; but never was this
doctrine so explicitly and avowedly published
as part of a, treaty of concert.
We may ask the most devoted admirers of
Rritish Ministers and British measures, if the
indefinite tetm 'too' intimate an union with
t rance" may nothe used by , Buonaparte to
excuse any art which his ambition or his in
terest may induce him to undertake or exe
cuted If Russia and Britain may judgfc and
determine what forms a too intimate anu
nidii with France '," why may not Buonaparte
decide what form l,'too intimate an union"
with the powers opposed to him. He may
meet them on their own ground, lie may
challenge them with language whitlj had been
used by them against him, and he may wield
the weapons they have put hub his hands,
and doubtless he will do so, perhaps to their
destruction. Let um not hear exclusively of
the ambition of Buonaparte what project
can he meditate, what plan exectfte, that he
may not justify by appealing lo those medita
ted and attempted to'bc carried into cflVctby
his enemies. .There is. not a connutst that
he, may. undertake, or a throne he may over
turn, that he Cannae tivc irt ole.i of rniln.
