C. G. (Befo're their Majefties) L'AUegro ii Penforofo. The Expediency of ejiablijhing a dijiinil independent Boardfor the Affairs of the Colonics. From a pamphlet lately publifhed, entitled, The Ad' minijiration of the Colonies. SINCE the people of Europe have opened a trade to Afia; and have been, for fome ages, fettling on aH fides of the Attantic ocean, and in America, and poffefling every feat and channel of commerce ; the powers that derive from this are felt, and it is perceived that the fpirit of commerce will become that predominant power, which will form the general policy, and rule the powers of Europe: and that hence a grand commercial interell, the bafis of a great commercialdominidn, will arife. The rile and forming of this commercial dominion is what precifely conftitutes the prefent crifis. While each couBtry of Europe (uppofesj that its own government actuates and govern* the trade of its refpeflive fubjects and dependencies, there is in facl a general kind of lead in commerce, diftinct from any of the governments in Europe; a general intereft, that is not concerned in, nor governed by, the refpec-tive interefts of Europe. As the riling of this crifis forms'precifcly the object on which government (hould be employed; fo the taking leading meafures towards the forming all thefe Atlantic and American pofleffions into a one dominion, of which Great Britain (hould be..the commercial center, to which it mould be the fpring of power, istlje precife duty of govern* nient at this erilis. It is a fundamental maxim in every ftate, that the trade of its colonies (hall be confined fo'ely to the mother couutry;-yet fuch are the cir-cumilances of thefe colonies uni'verfally, that without an abfolute infraction of this principle* they would have neither tfad% nor even iub-hftence; and the fact is, that this maxim is univerfally through all the Spanifli, Dutch, French, Danifh, and Btitifh colonies broke through. If therefore, having an intereft which requires a trade, directly contrary to the fun* damental maxims of the mother country, and it thefe feveral interefts in the colonies of the different nations throughout the Atlantic, muft neceffarily fo combine, as to form one genera! commercial intereft, different and diftinct from the general and European intereft of the feve-Tal powers on which they depend : I do repeat, that there is a general commercial the Atlantic aad AsasrkarrftRIements, peculiar to thefe fettrements, and diftinct from either tha particular interefts of the refpective mother countries, or the general intereft of their European policy; and that tbis general intereft will, in its natural tendency, lead under the flnence of that branch ox bulineis, and thole merchants who actuate it, which predominate* in the general intercourse and opetation of its ceceffittes , aad tttat this letd will dJ^bive tire
