I have directed the Estimates of the current Year to be laid before you. They have been framed with every attention to economy which the circumstances of the Country will permit; and it will be satisfactory to you to learn that I have been able to make a large reduction in our Annual Expenditure, particularly in our Naval and Military Establishments.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

I have the greatest pleasure in acquainting you that a considerable improvement has taken place in the course of the last Year in the Commerce and Manufactures of the United Kingdom, and that I can now state them to be, in their important branches, in a very flourishing condition.

I must at the same time deeply regret the depressed state of the agricultural interest.

The condition of an interest so essentially connected with the prosperity of the Country will, of course, attract your early attention; and I have the fullest reliance on your wisdom in the consideration of this important subject.

I am persuaded, that in whatever measures you may adopt, you will bear constantly in mind, that in the maintenance of our Publick Credit all the best interests of this Kingdom are equally involved; and that it is by a steady adherence to that principle that we have attained, and can alone expect to preserve, our high station amongst the Nations of the World.

No. 1.-Sir Charles Stuart to Viscount Castlereagh.-(Rec. Feb. 25)
MY LORD,
Paris, 22d February, 1821.

I HAVE the honour to transmit to your Lordship the Copy of a Note I have received from Baron Pasquier, in answer to the Communication which announced the capture of the Slave Ship, the Louisa, in a Port of the Island of Antigua. I have, &c.

Viscount Castlereagh, K. G.

CHARLES STUART.

(Inclosure.)-The Baron Pasquier to Sir Charles Stuart.

MONSIEUR L'AMBASSADEUR,

Paris, le 15 Février, 1821, J'AI reçu la Lettre que votre Excellence m'a fait l'honneur de m'adresser le 9 Janvier, pour me faire connoître l'arrestation et la dé

tention, à Antigua, du Navire la Louise, qui paroit avoir été employé à la Traite des Noirs.

J'ai l'honneur d'informer votre Excellence, que M. le Ministre de la Marine, à qui je m'étais empressé de faire part de cette Communication, vient d'écrire aux Administrateurs François de la Guadeloupe et de la Martinique, pour que les poursuites contre la Louise soient faites par les Tribunaux, aussitôt que ce Navire aura été conduit, par ordre des Autorités Angloises, dans l'une ou l'autre de ces Iles.

J'ai l'honneur, &c.

S. E. Le Chevalier Stuart.

PASQUIER.

No. 2.-Sir Charles Stuart to Viscount Castlereagh.-(Rec. April 1.)
MY LORD,
Paris, 29th March, 1821.
I INCLOSE, for your Lordship's information, Copies of the further
Correspondence which has taken place with the French Government,
upon the subject of the repeated infractions of the Law which abolishes
the Slave Trade in the Territories of His Most Christian Majesty.
I have the honour to be, &c.
CHARLES STUART.

Viscount Castlereagh, K. G.

SIR,

(Inclosure 1.)-Sir Charles Stuart to the Baron Pasquier. Paris, 23d March, 1821. I HAVE the honour to inclose to your Excellency the annexed Paper*, which I am assured is the exact Copy of an Agreement recently concluded by certain mercantile houses in the Port of Havre.

The substitution of the word Mules for Negroes shows the real nature of this Agreement, since it is well known that there are no mules to be purchased on the Coast of Africa. I feel that it is my duty to submit this Document to the attention of His Most Christian Majesty's Government, in the hope that they may be enabled to prevent the Parties from carrying their designs into execution.

I have, &c.

His Excellency the Baron Pasquier.

CHARLES STUART.

(Inclosure 2.)-The Baron Pasquier to Sir Charles Stuart. MONSIEUR L'AMBASSADEUR, Paris, le Mars, 1821.

Au moment où je recevois la Lettre que votre Excellence m'a fait l'honneur de m'écrire le 23 de ce mois, rélativement à une spéculation qui paraît cacher un projet de Traite des Noirs, le Ministre de la Marine me faisait part des mêmes informations, en ajoutant, qu'il venait de prendre les mésures nécessaires pour que l'opération ne puisse s'effectuer, et pour que les spéculateurs soient récherchés et punis. Le voile dont on a cherché à la couvrir, facile d'ailleurs à pénétrer, est un motif de plus pour que le Gouvernement suive cette affaire de manière *Not transmitted to the Foreign Office.
