state since your late session, the people- ha?e ma
nifeSied an unusual decree of unanimity. They
have, for the most part, an equal interest in pro

Although wc have no agency in conducting our
national affairs, we must view with anxious cort
cern the important changes which are taking place
among the powers ot Europe. one ol us sove
reigns, under the pretence of giving freedom to
4he seas, is carrying war and desolation into re
gions remdte from eaph other, and seems deter
mined, by fraud and violence, to subjugate or des
troy every civilized nation. Thus tyranny has in
all ages assumed the fictitious garb of liberty. In
the calamities and dangers of Europe," we are now
unhappily involved ; but as the principal alleged
cause of hostility against England has been re
mrtved by the repeal of the British orders in coun
til, and a desire has been evinced to k.-ep the way
open to reconciliation, we can hardly suppose that
the war will be continued, to protect m our mer

sixteen millions of dollars to issue treasury notes
for five millions more, (with discretionary power
to issue' five" millions in addition, should not the
loan be completed,) and the bill to arm and class

, The discussion which kook place on these seve
