For Insurance again ft Fire, on Dwelling-
Houfcs, Ware-Hoafes, and other Buildings (and
on Goods contained in such Buildings) distant from
Philadelphia, in the United States.
I. Common lufurancet, on hazards of the firft
class, will be undertaken at a premium of ahout
hall per cent, per annum. For extra hazardous
r.fqnes a larger premium be required, which
will vaiy according to circumstances, feidom ex
ceeding one per cent, per annum ; but in some in
stances, where the property insured is not airty In
irfelf extra hazardous, Wut rendered still fo
by the vicinity of extra hazardous buddings and
occupations, the premium demanded will be raised
according to circumftar.ces.
Houses and Ware Houses, the waits and parti
tions of which are wholly of stone or brick, well
con ft ru died, so as to be guarded as well as may be
againO fires from wi'hin, and tree from extra ha
zardous buildings and occcupations in their neigh
borhood, will be deemed hazardous of the firft
class, and may be insured ta their full value.
Also Goods and Merchandize, not o' an extra
hazardous kind, in calks, bales, or package*, de
pofircd in such buildings, to an amount not ex
ceeding 4000 dollars ; but if more than thisfum
is required to be insured in one tenement, an addi
tional premium will be required, in proportion to
11. lnfurances will also be made on building? and
goods extra hazardous, at premiums proportioned
to tho risque. But it is not easy to arrange these
under particular heads or classes, so as to describe
each with the necessary accuracyt Each cafe must
therefore be decided upon aceorcliog to the circum
stances attending it ; and these cjreumftances wili,
in general, appear from the defcrtptloii accompa
uying the application.
Buildings partly conftru&ed of brick or stone,
are preferable to those w holly wooden. And in
both cases, the stile of building, how they are oc
cupied, how they are fituatcd, the neighboring
buildings, and how occupied, are considerations to
be taken into view. And with refpeit te goods,
their tendency, whether from their nature, or
from the manner in which they are exposed, either
to commence or to increaft an accidental fire, and
th< it liability in such state to receive damage by
wet, or by sudden andhafly removal, or to be £«o
---len ip time of confufion and hurry, are all cir
cumfi-ances of weight ; and the premiums must be
proportioned accordingly.
HI. The following conditiont are to be under
ftodd by the parties,
ift. The Iniurance is net binding till the stipu
lated premium be paid ; but it (hall be deem«d ef
fectual from the time of such payment and accep
tance thereof, whether the policy be immediately
figried or not.
id. lnfurances may be renewed at the expira
tion of the term of the policy, without further ex
penses thati the payment of the premium of the re
newed term, the circumftancescontinuing the.fame 1
as they WCi e»nderftood by the Tnfurtrs at the time
tile former insurance was made ; but the payment
of the premium is eflential to such rettetfal ; and
if the party insured fuffers any time to elapse after
the expiration of the former insurance, before he
pays a premium for the renewal, he is not insured
cftiriAg ftlcft time ; no'r can the irifurantfe be renew
ed ©A the forttae* policy fctit by computing the
coromcn'ctnfient of the rehewal frdm the expiration
of the former tnfurauce. The fubjeA of iilfur
ance may neverthelcfs be open to treaty for a new
3d. If a' y other insurance be made on the fame
property ; it mult be made krtoWn at the tf'Ane of
applicatior!, other-wife the policy fnade 611 such ap
plication will be void.
4th Goods held in trust, or on consignment.

, they are not td be considered as infuied other wife.

taffte for any loss or damage occasioned by any f Or
• efgn invafioiT, or by any military or ufnrped force,
or by peafon of any commotion ; or dccafion- 1
! 6d by gunpowdvr, aquafortis or other thing of the
like kind kept in the building, or amongst the pro
perty if. lured. r
6th. Bills of Exchange, Bonds and other Secu
rities, Title Deids, Money, Bank and other pro
missory Notes, are not included in any infarance ;
nor are paintings, medals, jewels, gems, antique
curiosities, or mirrors exceeding the value of twen
ty-five dollars each, to be considered as insured un
less particularly mentioned and by special agree
7th. No insurance will be made for a shorter.
term than" one year, nor for a longer term than fe
vea years. Persons choosing to infare for seven
years (hall be allowed one year's premium by way
of difeount: One third of a years premium (hall
be abated in like manner en an insurance for
three years.
Bth. LolTes sustained by fire on property insured,
Ihall be paid in thirty days after due prouf and li
quidation thereof, without deduction.
A defciiption of the property to be infurod will
be expe&ed with each application, to be made by
a master carpenter and signed by him, as well as
