About three o'clock 0:1 Friday morning a mod
melancholy accident happened in Lothbury. A
young man, between 18 and 19 yaars of age,addict

to the fummii oi the house, fell, and was nearly
dashed to pieces.
The young gentleman, who 101 l his life in cor/se

V 1779 by the Earl of Carlisle, Sir Henry Clinton,
William Eden, and George Johnllone, Efqrs. cam
miflioners appointed by his majelty for " quieting
the disorders in America." In this proclamation,
after recommending to the Americans a union with
England rather than with their ally the French, the

" The house ot AfTembly have been debating 3 t

figUed Y. which was re-ptibhihed in your paper of
yellerday, from the GaZctie of the United States,
that its author, who is certainly an accomplice in
the flanders on Mr. Randolph, has not ceased to
