trial, it is however in this work deftgned to ref
.cuefwhatcan be col left ed thereof from foutces
of indifputaple authority, f 0 that the fame shall
be preserved from oblivion.
Another impeachment and the second is now
depending. An officer is charged by the late
Honfc of Representatives, who hath for many
year® been largely confided in by this state, and
hath long b< en at the head of the financial de
partment of the fame, and it imports the citi
zens to know his conduct, and the circumstances
which may be brought forward on his trial.

the length as the present trial, the fir.e of the
volume cannot be ascertained at this time—
But the price ftiall not excced that of fomeof
the latest publications in this city.
111. It will contain all the preliminaries and in'
cidental circumstances that may occur durin*
the trial of John Nicholfon, Esquire, Comp
troller-General of this commonwealth, with
thearguments of counsel on both (ides, together
with the articles of impeachment, and the
pleas and replications at large, the several re
solutions of the two branches of the state Le
gislature, refpefting this impeachment, and
the final dectfion of the SENATE refpe&ing
that officer.
To which will be prefixed, as much as can be
colle&ed from authentic documents, of the im
