For the M A S S A C H U S ET T S S P Y. । Mr. Thomas, । |'H AT nine tenths of the fpecics in all ages have ! I been Ajits, lias been too well known to their oppres sors j otherwise so many Batoons would never have dared to bridle, load, ride, and whip them. lam greatly mis taken if posterity does not refer to this Ura for instances of a > policy which disgrace a society really composed of Mules and Muukics. A knot of Foihuntert, Flnomarbet liwiies and Gambler », openly usurp the government of both King and country. In Great-Britain the treature wrung from the hard hand of industry, for the defence of the na- I tion, 1$ ditlipated on the purposes of bribery, corruption and | favouritifm ; in America, people are to be terrified out of their tenies with threats of being muideicd, banged, drawn and quartered, for rebellion, unless they,even without com proinife, lurrcnder to this blcjjed government just what por tion of their fubfiance it pleales to demand. When the llatnp-ad was forming and extending to the colonies we were told there was a great load of national debt incuind by a general war, for the payment of which every part of the empire was in justice bound to contribute its pioportion. This pretence had weight with many, and had not the mode of collt&ing the stamp duties appeared tmublefome, ’tis queltionable whether tin- publications of । those wife and honrft patriots who saw through the design, 1 would have had the amazing efteft they produced. That ! appearances now/ fcomed : Indeed it is iropoflible it Ihould have the least attention paid to it in a day when every idea of national honour, advantage and security is so openly abandoned LThe terms arc now, “ We, the favourites, farafites, an' penfoners, of Great-Britain, arc the Govern ment ; and we demand your money to support said govern ment, its tools and creatures, in all our loyal efforts to lub vert the conllitutional rights, liberties and franch fes of the fubjcfl. Hereof fail not on pain of our highest dilplcafurc ; which, in case of disobedience, (hall fall upon you by the hands of a mercenary fleet and army ; if we can find any one mad enough to engage in the enterprize, or money enough to be let, on out security, to lupport lb ruinous an expedition.” In what material cirrwmftance does the above differ from the language of the Britilh court at this day ’ Or how much this, from the stile of a chief of the wandering Arabs ? If Britons will fell themfclves, as Africans do their cap tives, we may pity the honest men, who by living among fuchwretches,are obliged to share their fats; but surely none can expudt that Americans will be so vile as to surrender their birthrights ; not even for a mess of pottage, but for a blustering menace, that unless they patt with all that can render life tolcrabl”, their lives (hall be taken from them. Those timid fouls who give the least heed to the rant of the puffing politicians, as they are juffly charadterized, who talk of forcing theeJi&s of a Britilh miniftcr upon America, do not confidcr that the rapacity, injullice and unconcern for the national honour and fafety, in the present adminis tration, are as well known and as thoroughly detested by al) honest and difmterclleu men in Great-Britain and Ireland as they can be in America—that the body of the nation knows the tonteft to be unjust on their fide, and that success ag.iinft American liberty would render the very name as well as being of Britilh liberty utterly extindl—that a force in any measure formidable to America would require at least half a dor.en millions fttrling, which in confidcration of that fiim’? being to be employed for the utter deftrudlion of the Ameritan commerce would be difficultly railed by loan in the city of London. Betides, the moment that Great- Britain sent fix h a fleet and army out of the channel the would then become exposed to the intuits of powers which fcem by no means over scrupulous how they treat her with all her forces at borne, and her colonies, at yet, not fairly dc’aohed from her. S A L U S T. To the Printer of the Public Advertifcr. S I R, T H E admirers of Dr. Franklin in England are much Ihocked at Mr. Wedderburne’s calling him a thief j but perhaps they will be less surprised at this circumstance when they are informed, that his greatest admirers on the continent agree in entertaining the fame idea of him. As an evidence of this, I fend you a copy of a poetical ftanzi, which is engraved under his portrait prefixed to the late French translation of hit work, in two volume;, quarto. I ihall also fend you an attempt of a translation of them, that the English reader may be able to judge of the fimi iarity between the idea of Mr. Wcdderbume, and that of the French Philosopher, with whom all the Philofophcrs in Europe entirely concur. It will even be seen that Foreign ers reprcfent him as much more impudent and audacious in his thefts than the English Orator (though he was under no restraint from a regard to truth) has ventured to in sinuate.

Last Wcdnefday week, a young woman of about 16, and a child of about five years old, children of the widow Diamond of North-Kingflon, went into a large cave, to get some sand, when a coniiderable quantity of sand fell upon, and killed them both ; they were found the next Saturday, both in an ereCt posture. A few days pail, a child was killed in like manner, in Warwick. Ext rad of a letter from fohnfon-Hall, dated the h of March. “ In consequence of a meeting held by Sir William Johnson, last November, with the Chiefs of the Six Nations, concerning the mur der of the four French men on Lake Ontario, whose boat they also plundered, there arrived here yesterday, three runners, or meflengers from diem, to acquaint Sir William, that a number of the Sachems were on their way hi-f ther, with two of the murderers whom they are to deliver up to juflice ; they havealfo paid so much regard to Sir William’s admonitions to them at that treaty, that they are ow bringing down a quantity of (kins and sum to make up the Frenchmens losses ; thix is more than they could ever be prevailed upon to do before, and Sir William is hopeful, this pre cedent, will lie of very great service, as it cer tainly will deter others hum being guilty U the like in fixture.”
