ProfefTor of Moral Philosophy, and the Law of Nature, and of Ecclesiastical History ; and Minister of cl*eEnglifh Chuich at U trecbt. Aliquid Temper ad communem utilitatem af fcientlum. Cicero. The Firjl American Edition. THE grand principle of Equality, if right ly understood, is the onjy bafts 011 which unverfal jultice, sacred older, and perfect freedom, can be fr mly built, and permanent ly secured. The vewof it exhibited in this essay, at the fame time that it represses the infolcuce of office, the tyranny of pride, and the outrages of oppression ; confirms, 'n the most forcible manner, the neceJTity ol fubor- Hination, and the just demands of law tul au thority. So far indeed, from loofeuiug the bands of fbciety, that it maintains in violate, every natural and every civil diftindtion, draws;more closely every locial tie, unites in one harmonious and juftlv proportioned sys tem, antl brings men together on the even ground of the inherent rights of hnman na ture, of reciprocal obit ation, and of a com mon relation to the community.

Some French frigates had been crui sing in the Channel, and taken a number of vefiels. Nine French Eaft-Indiman, under convoy of two frigates, were arrived at L' Orient. By the last accounts from Paris, we learfii, tjiat the Convention has decreed, " that fta very lhall be abolilhed in all the French if« lands." This, they fay, will be a death blow to Pitt. On the 4th inft. the National Convention decreed, that the colony of St. Domingo foould be represented in the aflembly. On that day three deputies came to take their feats, viz. a negro, a mulatto, and a white. They were greatly applauded and received the fraternal embrace of Vadier the President. This scene was accompanied by the reitera ted cries vise l'egalite ! The negroes of St. Domingo have sworn to extirpate the Eng lish from that Island. On the Bth several % people of colour acknowledged their grati tude to the Convention for having given li berty to their brethren. March 4. In the opinion of a certain learned writer, the present French government is likely to end in a military Republic, of v which Paris is to be the center, with the other departments of the kingdom as its circumference, and under its controuL— In that cafe, adds he, let Europe trem ble; depopulation and diminution of in ternal resource will then rather stimulate than impede conquest, as they did in an cient Rome, which conquered the world during the most rapid d.cline of the po pulation and of the resources of Italy. * March 8. It has been said, that the ft ate of , France is industriously mifrcprefented on this tide the water,to anfwei a purpose,& that only in Paris a temporary ir.conve nience prevails, on account <ff butcher'* meat, while the departments labor under no such inconvenience; now on the au thority of the Paris Papers, it is said that the distress appears to be every where much the fame. We (hould but tire th« patience of our readers, in translating the numerous complaints on this head, which pour out into the capital daily. In every part of the country, the Cluba are engaged solely in deviling mean 3 tt> remedy the evil. HOUSE OF LORDS. February 14. Lord Moira's Expedition. The Earl of Moira, rose to take no tice of some observations that had been thrown out by an honorable gentleman, Major Maitland, in another house, on the expedition which he had the honor to com mand. His Lordship explained at some length, the general outlines of the expedi tion, the views of his Majesty's Ministers, and the communications which had taken place with the Royalists 011 the fut>je<s. He had been sent for, he said by his Ma» Alley's Ministers, on the 17th of Ofto- Eejj, and informed by them, of the fuc #ith which it was intended the Roy alists should be furniihed. He did not he sitate to undertake the expedition propos ed, nor that responsibility which he consi dered as attached to it. The Royalists had demanded a certain force, to co-ope rate with therti, and his Majesty's Minis ters had appointed a much greater force than they had requested ; It only remain ed that a junction (hould be fiied : and before that could be effe&ed, some fignah were agreed upon, and some frigates sens to repeat those signal?; but they were not av>fwered by the Royalists. On the 10th of November, some persons were sent to concert measures with them, and* different spot for landing Was fixed upon. —The Royalists had required artillery men, as they had scarce any one who under flood the use of cannon.
