The Editors of newspapers within the United States, are requested to republish the 2 oregoing notice* <4 [Whole No. 538.J PotL nu Oacetti or Tfti iimv9» 9ritm Mr. Fsmnd, - I am one of thole peaceable characters that seldom attend pnblic me< tings, but as one at* njy Neighbours told me that the Meeting of 't'uefday evening I all at Mr, M'Shane's wa» of the utmost importance to every cJafsof ci tizens, I contented to go with hiin. The business of the meeting was opened by a little gentleman who after a torrent of de clamation, brought forward a firing of reso lutions which he had previoiifly preparej for the purpose. In the course of his arguments he justly re probated the condu& of the Britiih Govern ment for Aipporting it* cmifers iu il)e»ml de predations upon th#ci>mmerce of all Neutral Nation!?, but more pat ticulai ly upon that of Amerita—he then ffcated with a great flow of language, tht propriety and the absolute n»- ceifity for this country meeting Britain with some kind of Retaliation and that in a way which he considered to be the lead hoftiic. This Was fir,to recdmitiend to Congress ei ther by way of Resolution or memorial, tb make discriminating dut-es upon the manufac tures of such countries as have no commer cial Treaties with the United States, aud the duties arising therefiom to be appropriated as a Fund for repaying such Merchants as may have fuffered filiation from the detention or feizwres of British cruisers. This he supposed no mati could object to, and 1 coufefs I thought it very comforting doctrine, but I was not al together fatisfied of the Fadt, having experien ced in the couHe of my bufmefs, that additio nal duties upon ftich goods a 6 we could neither mauufa&iire or do without, must, in all such cases be paid by the consumer or perfou who w nfts them. *diot I keep a Store of what \i called Ironmon gery, two thirds of which is of Brftifb manu facture, consisting of locks, hinges, laws, pl»ne% gimblets, hammers and a great vaiiety of othej articles, few of which can be made here, and none suitable for this market can be made in any part of Europe but England} if so, we must import them from that toontry, and if we must have them the whole duties fall on the purchafeis In this Country. If thd duties amount toa prohibition, I must (hut up shop and pursue some other bultntfs— w jllinghowever to examine this question a little farther, I callfed upon rfiy neighbour who fells Broad Cloths, Velvets, Velverets Corduroys, Jeans, Fuftians&c. &rc. aud on en! quiry found his prices were considerably ad vanced, viz. Broadcloth from 35 to46f. p r . yd. which he afTured me was partly owing to ex! ifttng duties, and equally so to the expertatiou that Congress would adopt Mr. Madison's re solutions. He told mo he occasionally had French clotlis, but the British were generally preferred by his enftomers; and witb regard to Velvets, &c. no part of the world could supply them oh such-good terms both as to price and" credit as Manchester in England; but fays he Congress may add to their Duties, I (hall add ihin to the price, and the people of America, must pay the whoie. If theft are fa&s, and they really ftrilce my mind as such, whence are the duties to arise, from which a fund is to be appropriated to compensate the losses of our Merchants ? is every man thaTt>uiMsahoufe to pay the additi onal duties on locks, hwiges, &c &t. and every man that wants a coat, and every Farmer or Mechanick that requires implements or tools to pay high prices to compensate the Mer chant ? for finely the little gentleman wont alTert that we can uiake those articles in fu£> fictent quantities for the United States* and if we nuftlvave them, so long must we employ 4 the British Manufacturers, pay the Tax our selves and be laughed at into the Ba?gain. I hope Sir, j have not traofgrefled too mucil on tlie space allotted in yout paper to better writers-—tf my brother shop-keepers ai d in deed people in general, would think timre for tfceerfiives) they never would be the thipos of BUSY POLITICIANS. Foreign Intelligence. LONDON* Dec. 20. Copy of a lettter received yesterday morn ing from an officer in JLord Howe's fleet, dated Torbay, Deo. 14, 1793. MWe arrived here on Wednesday last, after an utrfeccefefol cruize, the object of which, (as wa» reported), was to inter cept the French Weft India convoy,. They, howev*rhave thought propr to go to America, and in all probability w2l remain there, as neither life nor property appear secure in France. On the morn ing of 18th November, wt fell in with a Frcngh squadron, confiding of seven fail of thelme, two frigates, two brigs and » schooner. They were within two leagues of us before they discovered their mittake.
