great applause which this exctllen 1
X book has received, is a fore proof of it 8
merits—The vast sale which it ha 9 had fo r
several years, is a fair criterion by which the
public opinion of its worth can be known.
During the life of th« learned author, it went
through the annual sale of a very large impref
fion—every fttcceeding edition received tome
improvement the result of his deep researches
and great judgment—he lived to make it as
perfect is in the nature of things it could be —
he it Jead ! Whilst the English language is
read, the History of Modern Europe will re
main a monument to his fame ! ft is ai enter
taining as inflruftive ; as interesting as pro
found. The plan of the work is but
by ax happy arrangement, the reader is at once
presented with the cotemporary history of
every part of Europe. The book now offered
to the public is from the lalt and most correal
copy, to which this /hall be no way inferior.
An history nf the decline and fill of the Roman
empire. The rife of modern kingdoms, ge
nerally. A particular history of the French
monarchy. Do. Spain from the dominion
of the Vifigsths. Italy, with the rife and
progrefj of the Temporal Power of the
Popes. Britain, from its relinquilhment by
the Komans. Ireland. The German em
pire, from Charlemagne. The empire of
Conliaotinople to its overthrow. Empire of
|he Arabs. Rife and progTcfs of the Turks
and fall of the'Gre«k empirff. History of
Portugal ; View of the progress of Naviga
tion ; Conqucftsin the Eafl and Weft Indies ;
Discovery ofAmer ca,&c. History of Sweden,
Denmark, Norway, Ruflia,Poland and Prus
sia: North-America, as concealed with Eu
ropean history. A very csraprehenfivc and
highly ufeful chronology.
I. The whole Hull be comprized in five larfe
oflavo volumes, printed in the best manner,
on a fuperfine paper.
11. It is intended to deliver one volume every
two months, at the price of Two Dollars per
volume in boards, payable on delivery.
111. As it may be inconvenient to deliver them
to distant futferibers in finale volumes, those
who wish it, may let thvm remain with the
publifliers until the wholi are published.
The work i 9 at press will he printed on
a beautiful new type call for the purpose. The
encouragers ef this undertaking may reft as
lured, that nothing now forelcen fliall delay its
regular procedure ; so that in one year at far
theft the citizens of the United States fliall be
preferred with an American Edition of Doilor
UufTcll's History of Modern Europe, equal to
the English copy, aud at 4 lower price.

has bad teeth, those of her under jaw are much
discoloured and projeA a good deal. She h s a
full head of wooly hair—a very cross forbidding
countenance, is very impertinent, and laughs and
talks loud. Pat was horn in South-Cawlina, and
(peaks bad EngliGi, with the negro dialed. She
has on the upper yart of her breast, two pretty
laige lumps of flefli resembling Wens, or rather
with the appearance of the marks of a burn. She
carried away with her several changes of cloaths,
and gowns ot white muilin, and of coloured and
figured printed cottons falhionably made up. Shi
also carried away with her,
CLARA her daughter—a very flout, robust,

fliouldered—appearing te> be about 14 years of
age. Clara has large flaring ey««, a fiat nose.an
eval flat face, her uridi-r jaw projecting a little,
and good testh. She is very artful and l.jpu
deut, has agriat fluency of speech, uses good lan
guage, and has been taught to read,—She has the
appearance of ring worms on her left cheek and
chin ; the ft 111 in (pots appearing much paler than
the reft of her Cotupl-xion, which is much lighter

June, DICK and AMELIA. Dick, or as he has
lately called hiinfelf, Richard Weaver, is a houfe
fer*ant, — he about 5 feet 7 inches high, rather
fotall made, is about 25 years old, of a
smooth, black complexion—has a flat. nose, with
very large open notlrils. He carried his head

ders, which are high and tdlerably square, and his
neck Ihort—his legs are flraight but small and
illy made, with scarce ar.y calt. He has hai had
teeth, is left handed, and exceedingly awkward
he has a full head of wooly hair, which he pl:its
and dresses to the best advantag;. His voi'e is
small, his tpeech commoly mild and flow, and his
manners appear extremely Ample, but he is at
bottom an artful knave, and when spoken to is
very apt to b: paflionate and impertinent. Dick
is a native of South-Carolina, and speaks bad
Englilh—he seduced and carried away with him
Amelia. who he called his wife.
Amelia is a very complete, well inftrufted la
dies maid, much below the common flature and

She took with her a variety ot clothes, falhiou
