"'W HEN Ogl-th-rp led theBritifh troops
against" Auguffine, the terror of our
Southern settlers in Ncirth America, the
Quebec of Spain, he could' not but have fuc-
cteded, bad he been contented to pulfue the
ufual track of military bufinels. But he pre-
occupied the ckmency of vi&ory ere he w as
secure ftom repulie, .treating the Spaniards
rather as dedititious fubjets than as armed
enemies; and walled the .feaon for reducing
the fortrefs in the exertion of an ill-timed
lenity, that afforded grounds to moft of his
officers for imagining that he had made a
compact, of whatever fort; with the Gover-
nor for its indubitable surrender. The pro-
jeds indeedd of this unfuccefsful politician
were wild as the country he was engaged in;
and he adhered to them, in despite of experi-
mental convidicn, with an inflexibility that
did more honour to his conftancy and fcrti-
tude than to his prudence and underitandinrg.
It is accordingly with a very bad grace that
he is Eyied the founder of the colony of
.Georgia, of which he was in reality the re-
tarder; having retrograded its progress for
many years, by his impraAicable attempt to
cieablifh a frontier province, wherein Brtons
should be reconciled to a military govern-
ment, and Negroes prohibited, though the
incredible fultrinefs of the climate incapaci-
tates 'white labour.
While the General lIy before Auguftine,
like an indigenous rattle-fnake of that region,
gaping, with impotent fafeination, after the\
r.townfAvhich never dropt into his mouth, a
.adibitlerable detachment of Highlanders, in
pcflfion of an advanced pbif, were furprifed
by theSpanifh army, and being entirely un-
Efuppo7ted, were flaugh'tered or captived.
The prifoners were prefented,,by the inhu-
manity of the Spaniards, to the Indians in
their alliance, as an honourable douceur ;
and among thefe was one,.-f.the mountaineer
Serjeants. With this man the'favages made
.a triumphant entry into their nearest town,
during which he was buffeted and pelted by
the boys and girls;
Pueri circum innuptrque pudla. VIRtG.
then committed to cullodyi till the prepara-
tions were completed for the public folem-
nity of torturing him to death in ceremony.
The aboriginal Americans are jufily ab-
horred for their cruelty to prisoners ; it is a
fubjed on which European writers give them
(in their turn) no quarter; yet were thefe
Indians acquainted with the hiflory of other
continents, what numerous precedents might
they not allege in fpecious difculpation of
their pracice ? They then would affirm, that
the Grecians literally sacrificed a royal vir-
gin to one of their dead warriors; that the
'omarrs made the mortifying proceflon and
ignominious execution of captive generals
and kings effential parts of their'grand war-
dance, called in Latin triunihaus; that an
Hebrew Sachem impioufly vowed-away the
life of'his daughter; and that there are
Chriifan governments which Uill permit hy-
pocritically fanguinary tribunals. to Atiaa-
grida fellow-fubje&s for diffei-ence of opinion.
And now the fatal day was come, when
-the European vi&im was to be immolated td
the American Mars; a barbarian offering
doubtlefs, but lefs inhumanly fo than that of
the twelveTrcjan prisoners of warvby Achilles
to his minion, Patroclus, or of eight Italians
to his new'ally Rallas by the eye-blubbering
Aneas :
Qei pleure come une vache. R A .
As foon as the unhappy foldier flood pro-


duced amidft the favages, and viewed the
mangling infirnments of their intended but-
chery, whether the terrific appearance then
inflantly inspired him, or that (more pro-
bably) he had during the time of his con-

4necdotes, Political, Hijarical, Literary, &c.
From the London Regiffer, for Jan. 176z,
IT has been often observed, and which is
more to the purpose, it is inconteltably
true, that there is, and indeed, always has
keen, a kind of fashion in reading. In one
age large histories have been.admired, and
even the lives of particular perfons have been
fwelled into folio's. In another, abridge-
ments have been in vogue, and every thing
was to'be compreffed, like Homer's Iliad, into
a nutshell. Then Romances cameinto play;
Mnd especially had a mixture of true
itnd falfe'hiftory. But thefe received their
death's woun~l from the pen of the incom-
parable Boilean. Memoirs and novels ap-
pfared next upon the flage; and, tfay the
truth; have not yet made their dxit, But,
after all, the favourite reading of our times
are anecdotes. .
But, if fome fupercilious Critic should take
it in his head to afk, what are anecdotes? I
doubt many a modern reader, th'ugh very
well verfed in the ftudy, would. be at a lois'anfwer; arid, to peak candidly, it is
not very eafy to be given. The fimple and
plain reply to the question is, an anecdote is
a fat, or remark, or an observation, not hi-'
therto published. The .emnoirs of Philip
de Comines were, in their day,,-a treasure of
anecdotes; fo is Burnet's H/a' ; o. i. i.v.wn
Times, and the'Earl of Clarendon's Hyot/ry
of hi own Life. For, though allthe(e.books
contain a great deal of public hi o0ry-pat was'
known before, yet': they. like.wi'feb contain
abundance of pagess :thar, yeir 4njawn
before their publication. ..'.~a 'o '-in f .o ,
But, though novelty is in :tr.h-1,7e vryl
effence of anecdotes;. yet ,the rare, foRJ e
other circumftances.requiatfei Wr as tAgree-.
able. It mufit not' only ibanew, .butit muft
be likewise of fome importincy. Thomas ;
Hearne, of laborious-.memory,.,hasproduced
to the view of the learned, .many things that
haad long flept; and, if not ditfurbed by him,.
-would have for ever flept itthe, damp bofomr
of'oblivion; and yet Thomas was never
thought a writer of anecdotes. Sometimes,
however, importance may be 'dipenfed with,
provided they are curious and well told. In
refpea to anecdotes, the manner is as much
to-be considered as the matter; nay, fome-
times more, for an old..ftory prettily told,
and handsomely embellifhed, Thallpais with
the fhrewdqft wit for an anecdote, jufi as
calf's head, properly feafoned and elegantly
dithed up, hall pleafe even critical palates,
'aqd be alowed-the name of turtle.
There is, indeed, a certain ingredient,
which is generally thought to gieq: the grand
zeft to anecdotes; and that i~. tire.' Whe-
ther it Be owing to the natural malignity of
mankind, to felf-love, to a certain, fpecies,of
pride, or to whatever other cafe; fo it is, that.
'a flry whieWlieffezis the character of a great
fiani, expofes -the#reputation .of a heroine,
or difcovers -the weaknefs of one that has
been' universally celebrated for wisdom, is
too commonly well received. But though in
fome cafes this may give a high relish, and an
extreme poignancy to an anecdote, it is by.
no means effential.- On the contrary, to a
delicate tafte, the refcuing an injured and
illustrious name from calumny, the deteaing
falfe hillory-; ca even letting a fat of a du--
bious nature in a fall and fair point of light,
wil be allowed to have yet more 'merit; for,
upon the whole, in defiance of all half
Critics, and falfe Codhoifieurs, I venture to
aflfrt, that the true teft and touchilone of an
anecdote is TRUTJrH.
An author muft be allowed to deal very
-honourably with his readers, who in his pre-

C 14 R ON I C L E

fatory addrefs furnifhes them with rules for
criticizing his own writing; though, petiaps,
his real motive may be to point our the merit
of his performances. There are few things
that may not be ccnfidered in very different
lights, and, which is not fo conirrtonly ob-
fered, are feen in very different forms, ac-
cording to the confiruaion of ,their eyes;
I mean the mental eyes of thofe who con-
fider them. The principal aim, after ail,
of thefe introdutory remarks, is to convey
,to the readers knowledge, the many difficul-
ties that occur in making a valuable collec-
tion of anecdotes. It requires, I wil not
pretend to enumerate 'how nia.y an.d how
great powers of the mind; but this I may
surely 'have leave to fay, that if the maxrvl-
lo.s may' be easily rviflaken for the im-
portant, the'whimfical for the curious, and
obloquy for fatire; it is no flight talk, more
especially in fo enlightened an .we as the pre-
fent, to offer a riirellaniy of anecdotes, to
the public view. This, howev-r, is what
I undertake with a sincere and,e..rnef defidec
to-pleale every candid and fenfible perufer;
and at the fame time, I faithfully promise,
for my own fake as well as theirs, to make
my bow and retire, whenever I find my en-
deavours vain, and that I can please no

T H E present war in.Elrope, is not a war
of Monarcbr'but of Miniflers, not

"' "The first of thefe splendid fribbles, a Count
6f. the Empire, had great credit in one of the
firilt Courts in the.Chrifiian world. In the
conferences antecedent to the peace of Aix-
la-Chapelle, he discovered a.coxtempt for an
ally that had done moft of what was done
during the war, and had furnished the means
requifite for doing the reft. A French Mi-
nifter penetrated his fentiments, improved
them to the advantage of his malter, and was
made a Duke, though not a Peer, for his
pains. The German Count, after the peace,
was fent Ambaffador to Paris, where, though
ridiculous in his behaviour, he had a deference
paid him, which never any other Am-
baffor received, This Statefnran returned to
his own Court with a heart entirely Gallic;
*and, as might be expected, much improved
'in the science of foppery. His ample tye-
wig, superior to every thing, but that of Sir
Cloude ey Shovel 'in' the Abbey, has occa-
fioned many disputes. Some fty, that when
perfe&ly well combed and oiled, he thrufts
his head through a hole in his cabinet, when
two pages fill it with pearl powder,
with a pair of engines admirably adapted for
this purpose. Others alledge, that, covered
with a Spanifh cloak, he walks up and down
a large room, while four pages play their
poud:iers from its corners. In this both
parties agree, that he has a velvet mafk upon
his face, to defend that and his eye-fight.
Whatever a flovenly reader may fufpel, this
head, thus covered, has brains; and this
man of mode is likewise a man of parts, and

was allowed to have parts, though by writ-
inga 'Nely pretty copy of.f.erfes upon Indo-
/encec, it was geiretally believed he was not
much inclined to ule them.. This was a
fineff : anid a tour he was forced to make to
Venice, on account of being thought too
acceptable at a certain toilet, furnished him
with ItAlian maxims, which he pra&ifed
with to much addrefs at his return, as to fix
his Patrcnefs to the German interest; and to
give fo new and fo tun-xpcted a caft to the
politics of his all-varying countrymen,,'as to
change, at leafi in appearance, the objeis
they had had in view for at left a couple of
centuries. But. prefuming that the powers
which had accomplified- this might effce
fill meoe, he differed with her who made
him, and who, to fhew the plenitude of her
influence, unmade him, though infallibility
had covered his head with that defensive

upon his fhoulders. Thus this ecclefialtical

two Minifters, one ftrongly;attacied. to
France, and the other an implacable enemy
to Pruffia.
It might contribute to complete the pic-
ture, if we could. have a good commentary
upon the laying of the late Duke D e Mire-
poix, a man of illullrious defcent, who with
the Frepch livelinefs had adopted the frank-
nefs of a Briton. He ufed to affert, that
fome people had fo strong a.paflion'for the
monopoly of Hats, that they ]oft fight of the

them. But no more of this: we have no in-
clination to be clofe at the heels of a god-

has fo unfortunate a hitch in her gait, as
now and then to firike out the teeth of thole

,An HiJorical Anecdote.
THERE was, during the late war be-
tween the Queen of Hungary and the
King of Pruffllia, an officer of considerable
rankin the service of the latter, whom his
Majefly deteaed in a correfpondence with
one of the Auflrian Generals: His Majefty
made no noife about .the. affair, or the leaft
alteration in'his conduA towards the officer,
with whom, upon certain occasions, he con-
verfed very familiarly. When his Majefty
had got two' or three of his letters into his
polfeffion, he called him one day into his
clofet, and charged him with his offence,
laying, at the fa~me time, the intercepted.
letters before him. The delinquent trem-
bled, fell upon his knees, and begged his
Majefty to fpare his life. The King com-
manded him to rife, and affured him he
would not put him to death or even to dif-
grace. I believe, faid the King, I can

tell what infligated you to this criminal ac-
tion. At fuch a time I put fuch an officer
over your head i was not that' the reason ?"
The officer owned it was. At that time,
continued'ihe King, I could not inform you
of the reason ; at present I can, and will."
The officer, when he' had heard him, ac-
knowledged the King was in the right, and
that, all circumstances considered, ie could
not aa otherwise than he did. Then,
faid the King, we are even: you could not
have a greater plealre in gratifying your re-
fentment, than I have in frgi'ing you. Say
nothing of what has paffed; but ,beware of
doing any thing of the like kind again."
SSome mail time after, the King included
this officer in- a promotion, and thereby re-
flored him to his rank, for which he went to
return him thanks,- and vowed eternal fide-
lity. His Majefty received him very graci-
oufly, told him, he knew he was'a gooden-
gineer, and that he would confide to his care
the fortifying a poll of great importance.
Tbie officer undertook the charge, and he
executed it entirely to the King's fatisfac-
tion, who.expreffed it in the moit obliging
.manner, and promised that he'would very
.foon take an opportunity to reward him.
In the beginning of the 'next campaign,
this officer dining at the table of Marihal
* observed that his Excellency, after
dinner, was.making up a pacquet,' which
was to be fent to- Berlin by his running foot-
man. Thte:officer laid hold of this oppor- intreat the Marfhal to put a letter
of his in.his, pacquet, which he pulled out
of his pocket ready fealed, and the Marmhal
.mades :. ethealf :difficulty of inclofing it
-. ,wth-~iA,,n0pd tten delivered the pacquet
Sto his .io l t, 'Ths man 'proceeded with
the utmif .,lqpediti on on his journey: but
before igie iifif way to. Berlin, he was
ftopped, by' an. .efcer -of the King's guards,
who demanded h:is pacquet, broke it open,
arid took :oux the -oicer's letter; and then
ordered the man to go on with the other
letters. As. he went from the MarShal's
Stent, the officer was arrested, and brought
the next day to the King, who fhewed him
his own, letter, in which was a plan of the
fortificatier, with inftruaions how it might
be attacked and taken in a very Ihort pace.
.He flood fome timeftupid and silent; at laft
- burft into tears, and again begged his life.
Your life, faid the King, is fafe; and I
might, perhaps, have pardoned this treafon
too, but your treachery to your friend, and
making him unwittingly a partner in your
crime, I cannot forgive.-You muft pafs the

Literary Anecdote.
ST is well known to the learned of all na-
tions, that the famous Hulet, Bilhop of
Avranchcs, mintainetd, in his HiJlory cfj
the Commerce of the Ancinents, as well as in
his other writings, that the Chinefe were a
colony of the ancient Egyptians. This was
in opposition to another great man, who af-
ferted juft the reverfe, that the Egyptians
were to be considered as descended from the
Chinefe. The reader will observe, that not-
wihiltatding the apparent repugnancy of
there opinions, they have till this in com-
mbn, that both of them allow a visible con-
formity in tlie genius, culftoms, and laws of
thele two nations; which fuch as have
efpoufrd either of there notions, with indc-
fatiable labour and pains have endeavoured
to mew.


This dispute has been lately revived in
France, and several perfons of lively parts,
great fagacity, and extensive erudition, by
several well-written pieces, though differing
in their sentiments, have thrown great light
upon the fubjea. This, perhaps, many may
think little better than a wafte of time, and
calculated to promote-no ufeful end ; but on
the other hand, this is much easier faid than
proved. The extent of human underfrand-
ing is fo limited, that we can rarely pro-
nounce upon any flbjic whether it is or is
not void of utility. Besides, if it could be
proved, the learned ;are as well entitled to
amusements as the ignorant; and certainly
fuch enquiries as thee are very innocent, and
have no tendency to corrupt the morals, oi-
to inflame the paffions of mankind; and for
this reason, even from fuch as deny them ap-
plaufe, they at leaft merit indulgence.
In refpe& to this dispute, it feems in a fair
way of being decided bya method that never
entered into heads of thofe by whom it
was firlt started, and which at the fame time
fhews that there literary altercations, like the
labours of the Chemills, may lead to difco-
veries, which, originally at leaft, were not
either fought or e-peaed. There is in the
poffeiion of his Sardinian Majely an ancient
buff of the Egyptian goddefs Ifis in black
marble, which, with other colleaions belong-
ing to the Dukes of Mantua, were brought
to Turin at the fame thme with. the famous
table of Ifls, which makes fo great a figure in
the works of the learned Mortfaucon and
other ingenious Antiquaries. '
The face an4 but of this-ancient image aie-
coyered- with charafers very clear, and
strongly marked;, biut which hitherto have
been thought unintelligible. A perfon cu-
rious Jirn--tefe kind of refearches carried a
very esta& caught of this buft to Rome, in-
order to comfult a. learned Chitefe who re-
fides there, upon a fufpicion that he enter-)
tained that there chara&ers had fome affinity
to thofe of the Chinefe language. Upon an
attentive confederation of the characters 'he
perceived that the fufpiclon -was' not ill
founded, and that they were truly Chinef ;
but not the charaaers now in ufe, but thofe
that were employed by their ancestors in re-
moter ages, with which very few, even among
the molt learned of the modern Chinefe, are
at all acqfiainted. By the help of diEtiona-
ries, however, which are prefervedamongft
the ftupendous colleaions relative to oriental
learning in that metropolis, he is faid to have
given avery probable, or at leaft averyplau-
fible, interpretation to thewhole inscription.
The Public may, and without doubt will,
receive more ample and.corre& accounts of
this matter in due time. At present the thing
is new; and as in -relation to all matters ofx
this fort, thofe who are verfed in thefe kind's
of fludies are much divided ih their fenti-
ments, it is.mentioned here as a novelty, and
which in that reipe6 'cannot be difpleafing
to the reader. When it comes to be a fub-
jea of controversy, it will fall into other and
more able hands, to which we very willingly '
refign it.

HE fleet which failed from

fpoke with a few days 'ago,
T all well. :I
The floopLoveand Anne,,
SRobertCobham,mafter, from
Jamaica for Philadelphia, on
the A9th of Sept. was taken by a French fri-
gate off the N.W. end of Cuba; but being
left on board with five Frenchmen, himfelf
alone took an opportunity to dispatch one
with a brace of balls, and to oblige tile other'
four to jump into the hdat, and o bretookhis
veffel. He was ten days .turning to wind-
ward before he met with relief, when he met
a brig bound to Scotland, which had been-
taken'and ranforned, who pared him one.
Sand. On the i6th of O&. the floop fprung
a leak, which continually got the better of
the pumps, when on the they happily
met with the ihip Antelope, Capt. Fairel,
bound to this port, whom theygot on board
,of, leaving the floop with 'three feet water
in the hold.'
.Extral o' a letter from Capt. BacJt, late
'Iafjer of a Brirg beloqr'ng to this Port,
dated Cape Francois, Oc7.1. x. ,
My laft informed you of my being taken
.by the Defiance man of ~.r, on my voyage
'from Jamaica to the Mouint, on the rnth init.
.On the i7th he put his firff Lieuteriant on
board with 50 hands, and fent u in company
'with' Capt.. Little, in q-ue4 of a raniber of
Dutch armed floops, whnom C.ipr. Li tle and
another :privateer b:rig- hl' t' before
been obliged to quit.
The i8th we faw 13 ofPlem coming out
.of Port Paix, and-flood' for ,us arid in the
afternoon they bega- 'to' fire at us, and we
(being uch a number, fired a gn to leeward,
and hoilted our. jack;. they Itill continued.
.firing, we immediately truck, but they.kept
a constant fire, which made us imagine they'd
-give us no quarter. At five we were boarded
-by four Dutch floops, and a little after by
.two others. The ufage we met with from
thefe villains is impoffible for tongue to ex-
prefs, or pen to deferibe; they juft left me
what I had on my back: they killed my
.boatfwain after we Itruck: ,poor Captain
Little.was cruelly, butcher'd in cold blood."
'Bo/on, Dec. 14. Monday Capt. Froft ar-
rived at Portfmouth in a Flag of Truce from
Martinico, where he had been to redeem
.three hostages for three several veffels belong-
ing to Pifcataqua, taken and ranfomed. By
him we have'the following intelligence:
That he left Martinicq the .th of Nov.
where the French were making great prepa-
rations tb receive the Englifh forces, who
they expeied every moment would pay them
a vifit, and had encamped their women and
children-in the country: That Commodore
Douglas lath, by proclamation, give great
encouragement to Englifh .privateers, thai
.they hall have all the plunder they can gel
at Martinico, in confequence of which neal
xoo fail of Englilh privateers were cruifinj
in thofe feas.
Yefferd'ay arrived here Capt. Weft, frort
South Carolina, bjh whom we have advice
that the'four companies which were .to em
bark-from thence for the Weft Indies, faile(
the ltft alt. under convoy of the Nightingalh

laft month Capt. M'Kenzie of Fort Cumber-
land, having armed two veffels at Bay Vert,
proceeded as far to the Northward as Bay
Chaleurs, in order to break up a neft of
SFrench vermin on that coat, who have done
us to much mischief thefe two or three years
paft. in intercepting our veffels bound to
Halifax. Li'.,u.,ioIng, and the river St. Law-
rence, v. liicl he happily effeded ; and having
t:erj abLul 240 men, women; .and children
prifoners, brought them to Bay Vert, toge-
ther with eight or ten fmall veffels laden with
their effes. All the other fmall craft upon
the coat ho destroyed, fo.that there need be
no apprhenfion of any interruption in going
up the river next year, as all the ringleaders
of thd mischief hitherto done, with their fa-
milies, prisoners.

upon her coffin': 'itwas tlerefbie determined
:to make this trial bf the t6iftence or veradty
of the fuppofed fpit. -i
While theywere enquiring and deliberating,
theywere funinoned-intt the girl's chamber
by fome Ladies, who were near'her bed, and
who had heard knocks and scratches. When
the gentlemen entered, the girl declaredthat
ihe felt the spirit like a moufe, upon her
back, and was required to hold her hands
Iut'of bed. From that tine, though the
Spirit was very folemnly required to manifest
its existence, by appearance,; by impreflion,
,on the hand or body of any present, by
feratchds, knocks, or any other agency, no
evidence of any preternatural power was ex-
The spirit was then very ferioufly adver-
tifed, that the person to. whom the promise
was made, of Utriking the coffin, was then
about tovifit the .ault, and that the perform-
ance of the promise was then claimed. The
company, at one, went into the church, and
the geptieman, to whom the promise was
made, went, with one more, into the vault.
The fpirit vyas solemnly required to perfc rm
its promise, but nothing more than filence
cnfued; the Perfon fuppofed to bz accused
lb, the spirit, then went down, with fevera'
others, but no effed w'as perceived. lUpon
their return, they examined the girl, but
4tould draw no confeffion from her. Between'

two and three the defired, and was permitted,
to go home with her father.
It is therefore the opinion of the whole
affembly, that the child has fome art of mak-
ing or counterfeiting particular noices, and
that there is no agency of any higher caufe.
