fubritted to the people ; but their decifion is
reqoired with the utmoft fpeed—No time is left
for deliberation. In three weeks an anfwer is
to be retorned by the people of France, upon
one of the molt smportant gueftions thar can
comwe before a nation.—Why has France endur
ed the agonizing thioes awd throbs of a ten
years Revolution ¢ The increale of her military
fame and Continental pofl (lions, was the cffett,
bat not the motive of the Revolution. Nor
had the Revolution far its objet the mere re
moval of the reigning Dynafly, ‘The great ob
jott was the deflruttion of that defpotic power,
which prefled with fach weight upon the people,
and the eflablith meot of a Government founded
wpan popolar prisciples.—Where are we to look
for them 7 The Chief Magiftrate is originally
appoioted for ten years; a mao of gigantic gen
jus and talenrs is elefted to it ; he duzies
France by the fplerdor of his atchievewents,
and scqorses immenfe popolarity—he feizes the
favoranle moment, and geis himfclf eßablithed
in his office for life ! 1!

Soppi Tervitory, to bis Excellency Thomas Jef.

IN the courfe of a long, honorable, and
alefol life, your love for mankind and their
rights, your wifdom to difcern, firmnefs to pur
fuoe, and folieitude to promote the true intereft
of the American nation, have been eminently
confpicuons, and whiie fach virtoes and talents
have attcated our adwiracion and efteem, they
could oot fail to infpire a refpect for, and con
fidence in your adminiitration.
In foperinteading the affiirs of United
America, and fonvmfiog the welfare of your
pemerous conftituents we are fully affared, that
this Territory will occupy a due proportion of
your cares, and on all proper occafions, will re
ceive the toftering fupport of the general gov.
No part of the United Srates, Sir, poffefles
gamore local advantages, than this Diftri®?, and
bet advancement tw profperity promifes to be
fpeedy and certain; we acknowledge with grat.
itude, that under your paternal aufpices, our
rofpe@s for political happinels have grearly
gvighccned, and we anticipaie with fondeft ex
pectations the arrival ol a period when this ter
ritory, mature in age, firong in population, and
rich in refources, will add Rill greater fecurity
and confequence to the American Union ; and
we flatter ourfelves, that her prefeat and future
legiflators will remain no lefs zealous and firm
in the fupport of virtuous rulers, and virtoous
mealores, than in a firi@@ adherence to conftitu
tional provifions, and thofe republican principles
which the patriets of feveaty ix had the greate
nefs to conceive, the boldnefs to avow, and the
fortitude to maintain,
We pray Almighty God, to profper your
adminiftration, and extend to a life fo valuable,
the particular parronage of Heaven,

Yerritory, in their refolutions of the 3t De
cember laft, have heen pleafed to exprels on my
declining to recew the commifion of their late

the grounds of judgment in that cafe were fuch
as 1o leave no loem to doubt the line of duiy I
had to purfue, 'The teßimons of the Jegiflatare,

that our expetations from his fucce{lor will not
be difappointed ; and I avail myfelf of this opgor

NEW YORK, June, 30,
Captain Rogers, from St Auguftine, informs
ay, that two days before he farled a party of Gen.
cral Bowle’s lodians came within four miles of
the town, killed one man and touvk fix negrm
men, one woman, and a child, prifoners. '#he
Governor of St. Auvgoftine, on bcin% madc ac
quainted with this circumftance, ordered a de
tachment of the milicia to go in immediate par
fuit of them.
Yefterday Mr. Fabez Luiber, 34, of this
town, had hoth Ais arms blowa off, and other
wife much burat by the difcharge ot a cannon,
in the aét of rammiong home the cartridge. His
right aim was taken off jult below, and bis lefe
juit abeve his clbows, which he bore with an afl
tonifhiing degree of fortitude.—The amputations
were performed by Doéiors Nelfon, of Briftol,
and 7 bomp/en and Burr, of this town, in fuch
a manoer as did honor to the faculty ; and at
prefzat there is a probability of his care.
Saturday, Fuly 10, 1802.
ON Mbonday the sth inft, (the 4th bein
Sunday) the 27th Anciverfary of our Nuiunfi
Birth-Day was celebraied in this town, with
fuitablc demonftrations of fatistaction and joy.
The Day was ufhered in by che difcharge of
cannon. '
Naruanier Hararo, Efg. who had
been appointed by the Town to deliver an Ora
tion upon the occafion, havisg beea prevenced
by illochs from performing, and bavieg fignified
the impoflivility of his actempting it ; the Rev,
Josmua Braotey was waited vpon a day or
twa previous, and defired by a namber of ref
pectable Citizens to undertake the tatk, With
dificulty he was prevaried on, He ftated to the
Committee, that his profeffional avocations
would preclude the poflibility of his preparing
any thing like an Oratipn, even if the length ot
time were greater, With cheerfoloels, however,
he enlited his taleats in the celebration of an
event fo illafirious, and intel’efiing to mankind,
rather than it fhould pafls over in filence, and
llllflOliced. .
© At 11 o’clock, the Citizens affembled at
the Second Baptift Meeiing-Hoofe. Not ex
r&ing to hear more than the Declaration of
ndependence, and a {elelion of Plaimody, the
attendance was not fo general as it otherwife
would have been, But fnm agrorable was the
difappoinment of thofe who were prefent, when,
after an excellent performance of feleéted choir,
and a prayer calculated to fortify the heart by
principle, and to temper ir by the pure elements

ance rto time, place, and occafion ; and above
all, for purity of metive, it was warmly, and
highly approved, by all who witnefled its deliv
ery. He expatiated in a forcible manner, on
the caufes of our glorices emancipation from
Britith bondage—the cruei and inhuman con.
doét of the mother country towards her then
infant colonies—the fcenes of blood, of war, and
of devaftation, throogh which we had paffed
and a tribute of regard for the Heroes who
foughr and fell in the revolution—together with
other fentiments, which were received with ap
probatien by the audience. The exercifes were
clofed with appropriate mufic. The whole was
condected with decency and propriety ; and
noihing tranfpired to dithonor the natal day of
oor Liberties. The Citiztns then retired to
enjoy the ‘“ fealt of reafon, & the flow of fosl,”
when the following Toalts were drank :
1. The United States of America—** Free,
fovereign and Independent.”
2. The Conflitution—May its viclaters
meet a fpeedy exit,

malice, have attacked him in vain.
8. Our Raulers——-May they not be men

Commerce, its hand-maid.”
