PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY F.VKNING, OCTOBER -171 • DEMOCRATIC DEVICES. Among the ingenious tricks, fra&icrd by the J .cobins, the following deierves parti cular mention. It will lerve to the roeannefs as well as vice of the French party in this country. Among the Aurora gang some wretch is found, who can spell corredtly, and write a good hand. He i> employed • a mike up packets of vibaldiy, blasphemy, or feditioit. The name of some refpe&abie chuafter at a di(Vance' is then rnferibed 011 the cover, and the perfoil to ■whom the letter is addreiTei is requested to diflemiuate the articles, which it contains. Through hurry and n •gligence, jt foin«tiroes happens that this is actually the cafe ; and Auroras, compounded of fali hood and folly, and penny pamphlets, and libellous ballads have been current through a whole County. At :>ny rate, the person to whom this tr Hi is thus communicated, often has to pay the mofl vexatious of ,ill taxes, —the pollage for nonfenle and treason. Letters of this com plexion have been.left in the box in Con gaefs Hall, and and Federal Members have been desired to f irwarJ them to their constituents. Packets have litewife been made up, addreffed to fo.ne re fpeftable Clergymeil, particularly to those of tlje gravest chauffer, and of the efUblilhed Church. Sometimes thefc letters are thrown into houses by a Jacobin eaves dropper, and „ sometimes tliey coinelthrough the Poll Office. Qa opening thefn, they have h;en 'fjund to contain Savagk's oblcene and injurious Poem, called " The progrels of a Divine, '* and a scoundrel ballad, belching out Yjuifes against arittocracy and Esml'Nd Burke, against religion and morality. A vagrant fcribbfer. a fort of Pere Duchefii# of his party, and who is notoriously as mad as a March hare, is fuppofetPto be the mifefable tool of " the Arch .Jugglers behind the cur tain" The depravity and profligate objects of this last fchefrie afe eliough to fill any sober inind with horror. Such is Jacobin reform, jacobin decency, and salutary reforrrtati >n. Contempt of civil and eccleliaftiral authori ty, obscenity, deifui, !ind blasphemy are avowed, and propjgated by the skulking igents of tTis party, The worthy,and fedeial ecclesiastics, who have i-cn thus insulted, look lharp to a&nally the lunttic runner, who throws his Jacobin filth into their doors, and windows. A Vol! in the lennel, or a Negro with a Ti'arfcwliij), will requite thffe virtuous labours. LlTlT*. A correfpontfent obfervea in a late Ga zette fo:ne symptoms of the Editor's beipg in love.
