War-Office Burnt.
The following Note was received this morning
by Colonel Patton, from Chskles Bu*
R ALL, Elq Post-Matter at
Baltimore, Nov. p.
" The Wir-Ojjice at Washington Ci
ty, was destroyed by Fire last evening,
and all the Papers belonging to it, ex
cept the Accountant's."
We have seen a letter dated Wash
ington, Nov. 8, 12 o'Clock at night,
confirming the above.—lt states, " That
two small engines and about fifty buck
ets -of various kinds, with a bad supply
of water was all the means they were
poilefled of to quench it—That the
Accountant saved the greatest part of his
papers, but all the reft were burnt—
One house, and the only one adjoining
'it was burnt; it was owfted by Jonathan
Jackson, who died about fix hours pre
vious to the fire—his body was let out
of the window—his children and furni
turr were saved."—The writer fays, "the
fire exhibited a dreadful scene, as it ra
ged without controul; all their efforts
being ineffectual.

Mr. Wayne,
11' -tppears to me thi leaditt feature of
thi? Governor's Speech, is contained in the
iollowiiig fcntcnce:
" On the fidelity and vigilance of
its several members, the Union de
pends for its energy and duration ; and,
it is obvious, that a negket, or omif
hon, of tlie important duties, assigned
to the individual States, must, even
tually, prove as destructive to our Fe
deral Compact, as an oppolition the molt
aftive, or a fecellion the molt daring :
l'or, a free and enlightened People will
not long continue to maintain or to re
fpedt an inflitution, in which (from
whatever cause) they have ceased to be
This is evidently holding out a threat, as
much as to fi>y, if my advice is not pursued,
and Adams and Pinckney are ele&ed, the
people will recede from the Federal Compift ;
and I should think them juftiSable in fn do
ing. Admitting this to be a fair expolitiotv
it is certainly very unbecoming language in
a Chief Msgiftrate.
On the 18th of September the priva
teer Earl of Dublin, which had just be
fore captured the ship Howard, foun
dered in a gale of v/ind, and every per
son On board perilhed. The mate and
several seamen of the Howard were
among the unfortunate fufferers—fome
persons belonging to the privateer were
on board the prize. The Sir yVilliam
Parker, another privatec, belonging to
Halifax, on her firft cruize, is supposed
to have been also loft in the fame storm;
and a third has been taken by a Danish
brig in the Weft Indies and carried in
to St. Thomas, where the crew v/Cre
put in irons. The Captain was killed
in the engagement.
The Honourable General afiembly of
Rhode-Ifiand finiflied their feiTion on
Saturday the ift inft. and adjourned to
meet at East-Greenwich on the third
Monday of February next.
Governor Greene, Mr. Champlin,
Colonel Manton, and Mr. Davis, of
Hopkinton, will be fungprted by the
Federalists in Rhode-lfljad, as Electors
of President and Vice President.
An arrival atßofton furniflies London
date's to the last dnv of September—the
following summary is given by the Edi
tors of the Massachusetts Mercury :
Mass. Mer,
The British Channel Kleet has been
obliged by storms to return to port. —
The Britiih have evacuated the Isle de
Dieu, on the French coast.—Prussia and
Russia have entered into an alliance for
eight years. —The aflaffination of French
officers continues in the Cisalpine Re
public.—Several Englifti veflels having
arrived atLubecfrom Riga, it is luppofed
the embargo on Britifli {hips did not con
tinue long in Ruffia.—lßo perfoiis have
been drowned by the finking of a vcflel
in the canal of Oftend, among them
were 4 children of SantonuX, command
ant of artillery.—The cef.trean operation
was performed on the body of a drown
ed woman, which was found the follow
ing day—and a living infant extracted
which is still likely to exift.—Advives
have been received from Sir S. Smith,
from off Alexandria, July 6. He still
corresponds with Gen. Menou (then liv
ing) refpedting the evacuation of Egypt
—and hadjuft sent particular dispatches
to Cairo—the answer to which was r.nx
ioujl'y expend. But the Grand Vizier
is ready to advance with men
if the miffionisfruitlefs. The Cormorant
sloop of war is loft off Egypt, and the
crew detained by the French.

i Let tne now alk the pndi<i reader, what
dim- renrii is there between this opinion rif

the entrance of the French Grave-Yards,
Death is an kteknai. sleep ? If the
tvbole man becomes extinct at death, death
js certainly a {late of eternal llrep j and the
lentitnent is as impious and execrable in
Pripftley, as it is in Mii:ib~au or Condorcet.
When this and fo.ie o:lier circurnftances
are put together ; ftich as his French citi
zcufliip, his afT,>cia;ion with the Jacobins,
and I,is attacks on onr government; who
can duibt th..t th(& relHcfs old man is a

to dilliminate her attrocious principles, and
to promote her interrft» in {his country,
in order to prepare the tvay for its total lub
jugnion ?
From a conviftion that the Christian re
ligion inculcates peace and subordination
tmcng n en, its abolition, and the proscrip
tion of its rinnifters, became favorite objefts
of ilie PreJfCh icbeij, a leading inealure
ot the r volution. " B inilh th:a fupcrftition
liom France," f;ijd the impious I)upont ;
that is, cr-.dicate from their minds a belief
in the Cbriftian religion, and the imtnnrta
lity et the loul ; and the nation will be ca
pable of any thing. Spsead the poison of
Priestly, and Paine, lay his co-ad]uturs
through the United States of America, and
they will foan brctfme the fubferviem allies
ot the Great Republic. Dnpont was not
miftdken, with refpeft to his countrymen ;
nor will they be deceived in America, if they
carry their point. We can boall of citizens,
both native and in who have disco
vered a docility, thnt will qualify them for
teats, that may rival the reign of terror.
-We have Marati and Robefpieres, in peto,
that will go any length? in blood and rapine.
Some ot them h'ive a* little property, and as
little humanity, as the Poitfartlcs and Sep
tembers of Paris.
This infiduoix projtft, will appear flUl
more probable, if we advert to the indefati
gable pains that art wlc'ing-, at this inftai.t,
to ravft- jri-»Urt:r pupil "F the fame detefUble

if tittle and many other fafts, squally fla
giant a»d alarming, do not rouse the boalt
ful champions of tlieconftiiution and govrm
ment from their lethargy, their injenlibility
is a judgnient trom God—it is a portentous
lign that the reign of federalifm Itnd liberty
is nearly over—that the nation is deftincd,
by just Providence, to expiate hrr irimes,
and to fee her proud, independence expir£,
on an altar of hrr own railing. lam not
fond of prophecies to recent
events, but the fultgwijig denunciation from
Hafea,- a prophet, who lived in the reign of
Jeroboam the sic.md, is so applicable to the
exiftjftg Rate of affairs, that I inuft give it
a place. " The calf-of Samaria* (hall be
broken in pieces ; for they have (own the

if so be it yield, the Grangers (hall swallow
