Courier (Newspaper) - August 18, 1804, London, Middlesex We shall on monday Call the attention of our Reader to the meeting at the Crown and Anchor last tuesday and to the proposal at that meeting to establish Parish committees and county clubs a ropes Al tending in our opinion to nothing less than the Ren enxing and refreshing the affiliated corresponding societies,._ Prici of stocks this Day at twelve. be it reduced 57ji. Or min 7� Prcin. 3-t or ont. Consols s a. T the courier  London saturday August 18. F he last intelligence from the continent justifies us 311 believing that events of decisive importance May be take place immediately. Jaq aparte has no longer any expectation of preserving peace with Russia and it was even said at Hamburgh that the russian charge d Frires had kit Paris on. The His departure did not take place so soon but we believe that he kit Faris a bout the ,8th or 10th of this month. The probability of a War with Russia has induced Bonaparte to assemble so Large a Force at zest near utrecht. The Encampment there amounts to 6o,Coo that they shall be obliged to con. Cent rate , and withdraw it from the Banks of the Elbe and Weber and probably from Hanover the French preserve no longer the slightest decency in. Their demands arid exaction Bremen is attempted to be plundered and because the inhabitants resist the City is blockaded and even the commercial correspondence of that Neutral town a conduct for which no president occurs in the hostile proceedings of civilized states has been subjected to interruption a the first instance and to absolute prohibition to last accounts from Hanover assert that All the paymasters have on a sudden been directed to pay what they have received into the French military Chest immediately. It should seem from this As if the French intending to quit the electorate were determined to Drain it As much As possible and to leave it in the deepest state of penury and distress. Lord Melville who has left London on a visit %0 lord Keith is said to have gone for the purpose of concerning measures for the Junction of the North sea Fleet with fac russian Fleet which is reported erroneously we believe to have passed the sound. Whilst the French Are violating the rights of nations and vexing the Northern Powers the English government affording in its conduct a perfect contrast to that of the French Are using every Effort to soften the severity of the miseries in which the French have involved the Uno fending Imperial cities. They have not enly relaxed. The blockade of the Elbe a favour of the City of Hamburgh but have also agreed to extend the same indulgence to the City of Bremen and to the j Anish ships concerned in the whale fishery. A notification to this effect has been made to count Wedel Jarlsberg the danish Nister and also the m. Groning the Deputy of Bremen by letters from lord Harlow a let not , deserving though they Are of cur attention divert our views for one moment from the preparations and plans of the enemy against this country. " let us not suppose that a War with Russia will make j5o.nafas.te relax those preparations or abandon these , England is the object that occupies his first thoughts in the morning his last at night. Nothing we Are persuaded will induce re. Lih quash the invasion of. This country. He is determined to attempt it and it is the confident belief of his majesty s ministers that he will attempt it immediately Uffre report of lord Nelson having taken one of the hires islands is unfounded. He wow not a weaken his Force by any such expedition the object if Wick of any solid Good and permanent free sch Fleet at Toulon is completely manned and ready for sea and lord Nelson is off the Harbour.

The Rise. A " the blockade. To the edit onto the courier. Sir a \ in your paper of monday the Ruth inst. You offered some observations to your readers which were evidently Well i anti though they were not politically Correct. As a Marks the medium of your patriotic columns Are Likely to command attention i have taken upon myself to rectify the error into which the writer of the article in question seems to have fallen from an Hasty interpretation of the views of government. You stated As follows we confess we do not see Why at this present Tane when our like forests and full of vessels freighted with East and West India produce the enemy should be prevented or interrupted in the receiving of that produce which they used to do through those ports now declared to be in a state of the object of the blockade had no reference whatever to the direct vent of our own produce in France since it is Well known to All the mercantile world that Tea sugar. And Coffee from Cwi slants never made their Way into that country at any of the ports announced in saturday s Gazette. It inessential to our interests As a commercial people that the navigation act should be maintained As much As possible in its primitive Vigour in order that we May preserve in our own hands the Means whereby our maritime Dominion has been so Long supported. No Mode of effecting this purpose can he More obvious than the prevention of neutrals from taking advantage of our particular difficulties. For Many years the have derived a very extensive foreign Commerce from the circumstances attendant on Bur contests with France. They have also become what the hollanders were formerly the common carriers of produce of every description. To the fair profits of Industry and Enterprise to Liberal mind can object but when they Are found to interfere with the positive interests of another state measures must be adopted to counteract their effects. I would not be understood to inculcate principles either of envy or of irritation but the ground on which i approve of the blockade As a Wise political measure is from the consideration that american vessels were known to have carried into the ports of France the produce of the French colonics thus enabling cur enemies to derive almost the same advantages from them As in time of peace. All the productions of Marfi Nico and Guadeloupe As Well As of the French settlements in the East were transported to France in american Bottoms and thus while the spirit of the f naval Imell Kency.

In this View of the subject the blockade must be highly applauded As a measure calculated to defeat this Clandestine Commerce to intercept the resources thus furnished to the enemy through the medium of neutrals while it will necessarily compel the French to resort to the Continental Market for those articles of colonial produce which they will no longer be enabled to procure by. The intervention of neutrals. Kence our merchants will desire immense Benefit from this event arid enjoy an exclusive Trade. At the same time the French colonies must feel All the hardships of discouragement which Are the inevitable consequences of an obstructed Commerce. That this reasoning is conclusive you May easily ascertain from the present prices of All colonial articles. For with All the superabundance 1.864 Mercator.
