NEW-YORK, December 14.
The following important communica
tion, We have just received from a r:f
peftable merchant cf this city :
Mr. Lewis — l observe in the papers
of Saturday evening, and of this Jay, a
notice, requesting a general meeting of
the merchant* at the Tontine Coffee
House thiS*"evening, for the purpefe of
considering the present embarrassed state
of the foreign commerce of the United
States. This measure, which has un
doubtedly ariser. frprr, the bell motives,
may be made, if wifely conduced, to
produce eonfequrrrcK beneficial to the
great intcreftsof the Union,
Tiie fuhjeft which is pro posed for the
cpnlideration of the merchants, has been
received by vcffel* from Liverpool &801-
deaux, which arrived on Saturday.
I From those advices, it vviil appear, on
the one hand, that Great Britain, exult
ing in the powerful combination (he has
formed-, was mrduaiing early in October,
menfurcs extremely hostile to the rightis
and interests of neutral nations ; and, on
the other hand, that the coalition bad
received a severe and perhaps fatal (hock,
by the viftcries cf the French, and the
deftruftion of the Andrian grand army.
How far the latter event* may influence
the councils and conduct oi the great na
val power in relation to neutral commerce
it is not easy to eofijofture. It is
improbable, however, that as (lie lias just
entered on the thrdliold of a continental
war, one difafte-, great as it is, will not
deter her ministry from a prejeft which
thty have ferioufiy pondered, and the
conftquer.ces of which they have fully
Then projeft is to put an entire stop to
the exportation, by neutrals, of colonial
profusions ; of couife, to confine the im
portations to a supply for the to slump tioei of
the neutral country.
All the nations of Europe will proba
bly soon become engaged in trie prefer.:
contest. The United State* is now the
greatest, and may soon become the only
ueutral power ; this blow is then more ef
pccially aimed at htr commerce, and if
not arrelled muft|final!y dellroy it.
‘l'he merchants of the Ur.ited States
will lee the imminent danger to which
they are exposed, and will, it is hoped,
meet the emergency with moderation,
indeed, but with firinncfs and decision ;
they ought not, they cannot eonfent to
facriliice their neutral lights ; if they do,
tiny dellroy their commercial exist
Merchants cfal! parties, of every (hade
of politic: l ddferencts, are equally intcr
elL-U in til’s great quiltion ; it is emphat
ically a notion 1! yurjlicn —to give it a de
cision consonant to the true interests of
our country, the effort* of ail are indif
pen ft.hly ncceflary.
Not merchants alone, but citizens of
evci y class, are concerned in the right
uecilion of this important fulj :ft. The
interests of any one class of the commu
nity, arelo intimately conneded aud in
terwoven with those of every other, that i
measure which is disastrous to one will be
equally ruinous to all.
