[2720 Sketch of the Speeches of Mr. Fox and Mr. Pi t t on Monday, in the Debate on the Motion � for Papers explanatory of the late Convention. MK.Fox rofe and ftated, that he �ever, in his life time, had heard a queftion more ably argued on one fide, while on the other not a fingle argument, nor an attempt at argument had been ufed, Except indeed an attempt which deferved no other name than a libel upon the principles of the conftitution of this country. The Honourable Gentleman (Mr. Wilberforce), who ftarted the oppofition to his Hon. Friend's motion, had laid it down as a pofitton, that unlefs we can difcover fomething evidently blameable upon the face of a tranfaftion, or that may create fufpicion, we have no right whatever to gc into any enquiry as to the conduct of thofe who had managed that tranfaftion.- Now he-would appeal to the Houfe if ever a more uncbnfutctional, abfurd, and ill-timed doctrine was brought forward than had been advanced by the Hon. Gentleman ; if we are for a moment to grant him this pofition, then farewell to every idea of this country, and in every free country over the face of the earth. If this doctrine is to be heard, let us go back at once to the ancient days of defpotifm; let us- confider our-felves as meeting here not as a Houfe of Commons with an inquifitorial capacity, but as a fet people, met to frame laws, and vote -away whatever fums of money thofe friends to prerogative may call for upon papers of their own producing, which they certainly never will be fuch blunderers asHco bring before us in a fhape that carries the grounds of impeachment on the face of them, or even caufe of fufpicion. When refponfibility is gone, what then have we to expect but anarchy, and its natural parent, tyranny ?- With regard to th,? convention, he was not now to argue upon it*it was not before them ; but if his Majelty's Minillers had an honeft and honourable pride in the applaufe which they expected from the Houfe, and from the country for their negotiation with Spain-^-certainly they would wiih that this Houfe and the country had fufficient information of the manner in which they negotiated to procure this Convention that could enable them to give a hearty and decided opinion upon the refultof it. It was a matter of confe-quence to the grefent difcuflion, whether the Can*-vention was a good one or a bad one; but comparatively fpeakiog, it was of confequence to know whether it was the belt that could have been made coofiftent with exifting circumftances at the time; and even if it was the belt that could have been got, it was of confequence to know whether it could have been obtained for lefs expence, or in fhorter time Than was employed ir. negotiation.-Some gentlemen feemed to think it but a trivial matter, but when fo much money was to be voted he cone, fidered it as very blameable, as a piece of treachery to his conftkuents, if any Member of Parliament voted away large fums, or any fum, without knowing and" being fatisfied that the money was employed in the beit poihble manner for the country which the exigencies of the cafe would admit of. It had been faid that this was the time to give Confidence to Minillers ; in his opinion the direct contrary was the fact. If ever there was a time when blind confidence mould be avoided, when the conduct of Minifters fhould be looked to with the moll induftrious vigilance and jealoufy, it was the prefent. The Minifter had laft Parlia-me�t received much confidence, and the return expected by that Houfe was a fair and candid ac count of what the confidence of the country had enabled' the Minifter to do, and that hie fhould requite their liberality and confidence by a fair account of all his tranfactions, the difclofure of which could not bring the fmalleft danger on the ftate. While he talked of confidence, it was with afr.onifh.ment that he and many others in that Houfe had heard the Right Honourable Gentleman" anticipate the fate of his honourable friend's motion to day, and that with more than a becoming degree of confidence or decency ; if it was to be fo, and that the maj'ority of this Houfe was to negative the motion before them now, he hoped and-trufted, though that might appear odd to come from him, that feme plaufible reafon or other were offered to the Houfe, to occafion that refutation of a motion fo reafonably made, fo ably argued, and fo ftrongly -upported; for from any thing that had yet been faid, he fhould be exceedingly forry to think that it fhould go to the public knowledge, that they would be fo boy-ifh as to repel a motion of defcription, without hearing one argument that ought to induce them to do fo, or that could have the Ieaft weight with any body poflefTed of common fenfe, far lefs with fo intelligent a body as that Houfe. His Hon. Friend, and feveral other Hon. Gentlemen, had introduced precedents which they no doubt confidered as authorities worthy of attention : But what fays the Hon. Gentleman as to the precedents and the authorities of this Houie ? Why, that they are no ways analogous or applicable j that they ought to have no weight with us in this inflance ; but though he allows no authority to thefe, he tells us if you want an authority to'regulate and form your judgment, confult the City of London ; they have approved this Convention ; and therefore what right have the Hcufe of Commons to make ahy farther enquiry about the matter ? As the greateft commercial and manufacturing city, in liurope, perhaps in the-world, I refpett the authority of the City of London ; but I would much rather have their opinion upon buying and felling tobacco than upon any treaty or ..politicr' negotiation whatever. I have acted with the City of London for many years on different occafions, faid Mr. Fox, and believed, in conjunction with the Hon. Gentleman, he was now efpoufing the caufe of humanity in a trade that would not meet general approbation. There, he faid, confidering the neighbourhood in which the Hon- Gentleman fat, (near Mr. Dundas) it was rather uncivil that he did not notice another metropolis as an authority to the Houfe of Commons, who had approved the Convention, though perhaps both thefe" cities might have reafons for their conduct, or be in poffeffion of information which it was not thought fafe to lay before that Houfe. Another Hon. Gentleman had objected to the precedent of Falkland's Ifland, and faid, that the language of that day, for he did not pretend to recollect it, was nothing but the mention of axes, halters, and fcaffolds; arid as that language was not ufed now, that the precedent was not analagous or applicable. Another femblance of a reafon had been binted at by a learned Gentleman (Mr. Watfon), that the production of-papers might tend to renew the difputes which had exifted ; but how could this be, if we are to credit what is faid of the papers on the table, thjft they have not only terminated all differences at prefent, but are calculated to prevent difputes in future. A noble Lord too (Lord Carysfort) had ufed an argument fo curi-oufly, that he could not help taking notice of it; he had ftated that we mould firft approve or condemn the Convention, and then proceed to an enquiry as to the means and negotiation by which it was brought about; now, fuppofe we fhould adopt this method, and proceed to condemn this Convention, and cenfure thofe who made it,' and then according to the noble Lord's idea, examine into the previous negotiation that took place, and there find that from the exifting ctrcamflances this was the beft, perhaps the only Convention we could, have made, pray, in this cafe, what would be thought of us for cen-furing Minifter*' for doing the beft that coold be done ? this Mr. Fox put in various lights, and took up feparately every argument which had been ufed by each different fpeaker, in the mod perfpicuous, clear, and argumentative manner. Mr. Pitt obferced that th* gener�l^efrrbrt-
