PHILADELPHTIA, Feb 4
Among ths many circamßances that wal
emblazon the hito:y of the prefent rebel
lirm in America, we think the following,
with fome otkers no leis true, will ferve to
fhew (be perercus and Iberal principles
wpon which the prefent leaders are capable
cf t&ng. On the 17¢h eir. Mr, Shaw of
Becks courry, fell in with W, Britzin cf
E izaleit To:n, New. Jerfey, arna a Crpte
ct Lod Stirling’s divifor, +ud & Lient
Vauvreli o' Ne Biton, st tue hoale cl @
sei'an R-bert B ¢r, when {4i. Shaw ex
prefdlieg s fotis allien 0 the iuciels of
the Briifh arms, it enrz-ed them to isch a
deg.ce tha. tiey.r folvec to hang him, and
c.tting the fap fomw & fdoe fixed 1
reuc o his neck,und hung bim up 1l he was
am.ft dead, ti¢n et dows syain vatitl
he bha! €vived, ave whee be had recovercd
the sfeo ki frced, thiy afkec il he weuld
tew fight o King Grorge, and replying
12t he was toc 0!d, but that kie fon ihouid,
Py immedistely tied kim up agaia, and
would have jel. firacgled, had zot the wo
men of th. 2 hecle interfer:d sndrefcued him
from them. He was fo far gune that his
tocgue bung out of his mouth, after which
they kicked him, and beat him, that he lay
ill fer { me tme.
The accrunt-thst we bave had that the
Grand Americ'n Congrefs could make no
moré do:lare for want of rags, proves alto
gether a mifteke, fcr independent of the
Jarge furply expefted irom Wath'ngton’s
