his noble friend forfeit the favour of his sovereign by this conduct? Were his majesty's ministers lukewarm on the occasion? On the contrary, as would appear by the papers when produced, on the reception of the treaty, lord Mulgrave wrote to his noble friend, expressing his majesty's approbation of his proceedings, and declared his majesty's determination not to submit his rights of maritime war to any mediation whatever. This was during Mr. Pitt's administration. Nor was this determination concealed from the foreign ministers; for the copy of a letter of the same date from lord Mulgrave to the Russian ambassador would be produced, in which his lordship expressed similar sentiments; declared that no statesman would ever be found in this country, who would venture to unsettle that on which the power and prosperity of the country rested; and stated, that his noble friend had discharged a decided duty in the rejection of the proposition that had been made to him. Where was here the sacrifice of honour and of rights? Whatever the hon. gent. might think of other parts of his noble friend's character, they must know his candour too well to

suppose

that his observations on a former evening were intended for the purpose of producing, not an exculpation, but a panegyric on the conduct by which he evinced, that he was determined not to compromise that which was the solid foundation of the power of this country. He congratulated the house and the public, that such a deter- 1 mination had been evinced. He trusted t that similar principles to those which s pervaded this negotiation, would pervade / h any other negotiation in any other bands. He trusted that the great example which ta the administration of that day had set,by refusing to purchase an object, how- g ever desirable and important, by the sa

i crifice of that which was not the peculiar w strength of Britain alone, but which was

P the source and support of the general strength, by which that object appeared H to be attainable,ếhe trusted that that ex. ample would be followed to the end of ca time. He trusted that what we had not tu given to acquire a great good, we should fo never give even to avert a great evil.

He in trusted that what we had refused to grant to th the request of friendship, would never be extorted from us by the menaces of hostility.
