I'o the Right Honorable George Canning, First
Lord of the Treasury, ike:
Sir : I have now gone throuj^h with
every t;»et, relative to the proceetlino;.s
ill Con2;ress, stated in your letter of 27th
.lanuary, by way of showing that the con
ditions of the act cf Parliament of 1825,
were understood in this country, and
heinp; understood, were, at the first ses
sion of the 19th Congress, deliberately
'l have shown that, in respect to every
one of these alle,t;ed facts, you have fal
len into error. I have done this with
a minuteness which, perhaps, may have
been tiresome to you. But having seen
your extreme accuracy of informalio:!
in the details of foreign affairs lauded in
tho English newspapers, 1 own I was
3d. The British Minister here is unadvised h’f
his frovemmeni of any intention to close the colon
ial ports affatnst mir vessels—and
4ih. No information has been received hero
from any British colonial port, eiccpt Halifax*
of such intention.”
This letter of Mr. Clay published
in the American newspapers. A copy
of it was furnished to Mr. Vaughan,
which he was understood to have trans
mitted to his government. It was also
speedily communicated to the local au
thorities at Ifaiifax.
Halifax was the only British colonial
port where any such construction was
put on the acts of July, 1825. Shortly
after the (’ouncil at Halifax promulgat
ed its onler, the aulhoritiesof the neighs
borinj; province of St. Andrews decided,
that “United States vessels w'ill be ad
mitted to entry at the port of St. An

chamber of commerce at Halifax :

of Equity, for Mecklenburg county, to me

It is to this state of things that Mr.
! Gallatin (by particular instructions) al
ludes, in the following manner, in hia
letter of December 28, 1826 :
“That opinion [that the act of July, 182J,
was not intended to affect the United States)
W.1S corroborated by the construction ultimate

was thereby provided that certain privilege J
prranted to foreign ships could be limited to tho
ships of those countries which should comply
with the conditions therein stated, unless hi’tf
Majesty, by his Order in Council should in any
case grant such privileges, although the condi
tions had not been ^ erformed. And the act
was declart d to come in full force and opera-
tion, from the 5th January, 1826. It had at
first been determined at Halilax, that the port
should accordingly be shut against American
vessels after that day. 'I'iiis lecision was af
terwards revoked, although the condition had

would counsel you, hereafter, whenever
you may be concerned in a negotiation
with the American Government, to ad
mit, even for the sake of courtesy, that
its official statements, as to its own un
derstanding of things, is correct. Or,
if you must, perforce, accuse it of false
hood, then follow the advice of Lord
Mansfield, as rej'Orted by Dugald Stew
art, to “beware of giving the reasons
of your impressions.”
i shall now notice the manner in which
you reply to Mr. Gallatin’s remark rela
tive to the shutting of the port of Mali-1
fax. No one, w’ho will at'entively read
tlie simple statement which I shall make
on this subject, will envy you any of
the laurels you have gained in this ne-
is this ;—Your acts of Par
liament, ell'ecting a radical change in
your whole colonial system, were pass
ed in July, 1825. It w-as necessarily
us, in this country, to ascertain,
by experience, and by the explanations
which might be made iri the existing
7icgotiatio7is between the two govern
ments, what was the extent of this
i'riutiiig Business.

To this you permit yourself to reply,

“ The fact that somi- of the British authorities
