WE are here meritcdly affem blcd to celebrate this joyous an niverfary of American 1 1 depend ence—an independence wbnh has been looked upon withangcr, awe, and pleafcue, by the h uro pcan powers. Eng'and, with] anger, bhe'd 11s independent, i becaule in fpite ol her oppreb: fions, and her endeavors to fub jugate our mmly necks to the vile yoke of drfpotilm ; we had broken alfunder the fetters, of tvranny, and attumed the voice j of an heroic nation ; and fince we have, with fo much blood (hed, eflabliftied peace and an c xtenfive comincice, fhe h-as j looked upon us with fear, leR ; we Ihould by cur increafing greatnefs, revenge the many in-; juries with which Ihe had ptr lecuted our pious ancellors.

Ids commerce. n ihe other* hand, France with pLafure be held our g-ow.ng bitchy, and looked upon our indrpendc ore 1 as one of the greateft and moll glo ious events ever recorded in j the annals of time, loi, as rhe j lljine kindled in Ameii a, fpai ks | caught in furope, and gave to the nation of fiance, an over throwing the monarchy, and of er tbng a government fortiiem fclves, and al o of liber-i ing Irom the baßile thole victims of tyranny, who had for a long time lutteied unhea-d of cruel ties. In America, the fparks of li berty weie kind I dand nouiifhcd into independence; to obtain which, (lie had to ttruggle with one ol the then moR powciful nations in Europe, dvißißute of arms and ammunition, Ihe was forced to contend with a nuinc- ■ rous end well dlfcip 'ncd nvny ; but courage fuppaed the phce or arms, for when out coa.isj .ir.d fho*es were in felled by ho-1 (Me fl ets and armies the peo ple of America biavely dedicated thcr lives and fortunes to the facred caufe of freedom; and won with ll eir blood this glori ous independence handed un- Tul ied to their poflerity. B ced’s awful mount contains the a'hes I of manv of thofe noble patriots , who geneioufly fhed their biood 1 for liberty and their country ;, but their fouls are transferred to brighter regions, to the abodes of more than mortal bills. / mericans, the florin is over, j you now enjoy peace, a peace made happy by the vaft extent of a country embracing all the varieties of the mod lalubiious climes, and a government juftly t renowned for its wi fdom and in tcgiitv ; and while it keeps the equ table courfe it has taken, will have all true Americans at t chedtoit If then, Americans, the peop'e are attached to our government, why fhould we have a handing a my to fuppoit it ? while they have always been thought by wife and moderate men deftru6frve to republics. N oiwithftanding the tiuth and •importance of this maxim, it I has been thought pioper to or-' gamle fuch an army: already; have we feen and experienced its evils ; already have we feen attempts made by the foldiery to inlluence by force the public opinion. Not to mention the pernicious cffccls of the prefent cllablifliment, in adding to the ferocity oi 'party fpiiit, in cre ating a horde of idle profligate wretches* who will be the drones of locieiy ; nor the enormous icxpence incurred by it to the j United States. Already have 1 we hen the foldiery tyrannize over iheii fellow-citizens, not in 3rrn ; ; and the military fupercede , the civil authority, Thefc da ring attempts of the Januaries of , America, ought to excite the ; mult icnous alarm, and indig nuion. Ncfwithftanding the I pomp and parade of naval pre ! para ions, our property is Hill very inlecuic on the ocean, i d.wo oi the belligerent powers! continue to commit depreda tions on our commerce. The tyrant i f the ocean continues to | harrafs our trade, to infult our ! hag, to plunder cur property, I i and to imprels our Teamen, The 1 moll daring attempts of this kind | have been offered, that were i ever tolerated by an independent 1 people. I challenge any advo cate for Britain to produce an jinflance of a free fovereign, and “ mod enlightened peop'e/* be ing infultcd in having their Tea men taken from their (hips of war, and patiently fubmitung to the infult.
