SETTERS from Carthagen in South-America,
L give an account of an arthuake, which was felt
in the city of Santa-Fe on the Ith of July laft, at eight
o'clock in the morning. Two churches were entirely
destroyed, and many public and private building
greatly damaged. The hock was felt in the cnighboar-
ing towns and villages of Tugativa, Caiica, and others,
where the churches have alif been left in ruin. Fortu-
iately the number of lives left appear to have been fmall.
In 1 nta-Fe the perfons killed amounted only to f.urteen.
The Archbilhop, who is likewise Vice*y of Santa-
Fe. has .lde over thi whole revenues of his diocefe for
the relief of the fufferers, and has received on thi; oc-
c..i.ul 'he thanks of his Catholic Majel'y, with liberty

On the 2oth infant died at Orton, in Weflmereland,
the Rev. Richard Burn, I.L. D. Chancellor of the
diocale of Carlile. author of the Juafice of the Peace
and Ecclefiallical Law.
Through the whole of his life, the late Richard
Glover, E.'; ;vai by all good men evcred, by the wife
efleemed, by the great fometinic careffed and even
flattered, and now his death is fineere'y lamented by
all who had the hainpinmf, to contcIpla'ue the integrity
of his charal er. IMr. Glover, for upwards of o years
paP, through every vicfllitudeof fortune, exhibited the
molt exemplary simplicity of manners; having early
attained that perft tt equanimity, which philosophy
often recommends in the clofet, but which in 1cpe-
ritnce i to,, feldon exercifed by other men in the teft
of trial. In Mr. Glover wete united a wide compass of
accurate information in all mercantile concerns, with
high intclicual powers of mind, joined to a copious
ilow of t:oquence as an orator in the Houle of Com-
moon. hiltl Miltmo he was f:cond to none of ur En-
glilh P, eti, in his dilcriminiating judicious acquaintanre
with ll ancient as well as modern literature; witncfr
his Lconilda, Medea, Boadicea. and London; for, ha.
ving formed his own character upon the heft models of
the Grce writers, he lived as if he had been brdi a
ddiciple of Scrate. or companion of Arillides. Il nce
hit pon;tical turn of mind, h'nec his unwarred affcltion
an. a; live zel for the rights and lib.rtiesof his coun-
try-lhcence is heartfelt exultation whenrvcr he had to
paint the impious defgn of tyrants in ancient times

purpofre to extirpate liberty, or to trample on the una.

extent of hi. various erudition, for his unalloyed pa.
triotildi, and for his daily exercise and cnnlant pradrice
so Xenriphon's philefophy, in his private as well as in
public lilt, Mr. Glover has left none his equal in the
, another citizen hall arife with eloquence, with cha.
railer and with poetry, like his, to aF rt their rights,
or to vindicate with equal powers the juft claims of free-
born men. Suffice thi. tetimaey at present, as the
well earned meed of this truly virtuous man, whofe
con !odl was ca'efullv marked, and narrowly watched
by the writer of the foregoing hafty Ikctch, for his ez-
traurdinary qualities during the long period in human
li; of up sards of 40 years; and nriw it is fpontaneoufly

As the late Sir James Wright preildedcin the pro-
vince of Georgia two and twenty years, with dillin.
guilhed ability and integrity, it feenm to be a tribute
juftly due to his memory, to give thi public tefrimony
of his merit as a faithful fervent of his King and
country.-Before the commotions in America, his
example of industry and (kill in the cultivation and im-
provement of Georgia was of eminent advantage, and
his faithful difcharge of his executive and judicial com-
million was unlverfally acknowledged by the people
over whom he presided, none of his decrees as Chan.
cellar having'ever been revercd.-Uoder all the dili-
cultiea which attended the latter period of his Govern-
ment, his spirited condud in defence of that province
was fingilnarly manifeft.-His lots is deeply felt and
fincetely lamented by his family and friend., as well as
by hilsnfortunate fellow fuflere from America, whole

November 8. By a proclamation in Saturday's Ga-

Thuffday, the tft of December, is farther prorogued to
Tuefday the 14th of January.
November So. The rabd object which at present
nttrael the attention general politlians, is the agi.
station of the Oermn Empire an object of great alarm
to all Busro as well a of cancer to the patiea in.
terefted i It it ue and final fttlement. From the begin.
ning of the world to the preflnt time, for Empi re or


Empires have been gradually firetchiog over the nigh-
bouring nations, and swallowing up the liberrate of
mankind. Improvement ai war, in policy, and we
may add in political and fiancical calculation, have
taught the geat powers on the Continent of Europe a
IeCon which may be pradifed to the endangering, if
not to the fubvcrtfon of the independence of the nations.
To divide the fpell of flme weaker fate, to reap the
fruits without incurring the mifrie and dangers of war
is the policy of France, Auftria, and Ruflia. The
Emprefs purfuee one proje of aggrandinement, the
Emperor a second, the French King a third; and a
concert is formed for mutual connivance, if not aid and
co o craiion. The Emprefs supports his Imperial MIa
jerty in his claims to the Elecorate of Bavaria; his
Imperial Majefiy fupporta the Emprefa in her encroach-
ments on the Turk il Empire; and the Court of Ver-
failles encourages an exchange of Bavaria for the No.
therlands, that the fieft and richest territory in Europe
being cut of from the powerful protecion of the Au-
nrians, may at lft well the grandeur of the Houle of
Bourbon. Thefe are apparent, and there are no doubt
other object& of ambition involved, which cement
a temporary fricadfhip among the greatest powers in
the world; we fay TiuroAnr, because should theft
powers be able to goon toparcel out among themselves
the dominions, or, at leai the independence, which
is the fame thing, of other fates, they muf fall upon
one another at laft, and prolong hofilities until it should
be detern ned which mater the old world was to obey,
the Rutiarni, or the Princes of Bourbon. We here
furpole that in the progref towards universal empire.
the dominlions of the Auftrians would be funk into the
prevailing monarchy of one or other of the two compe-
riterrs for the fevereignty of the world. For thefe
lying Ietween the territories of France and of Rufia,
would present dillerent *bjeCt of ambition and points
of attack to both; and, the principle of partition being
Aill pursued, it might happen that an amicable concert
might to mutilate the dominions of Aufria, that his
Imperial Majer.y might remain for a time a dependent
and nominal monarch like the King of Poland. At lat
he would drop into the sphere of whichever of the two
contending powers should prevail in the great contelh
for the matcery of Europe. If the Emperor in order
to preserve or prolong his independency, should join
either France in an attack on Ruffia, or Ruffia in am
attack on France, the party might indeed prevail whom
he should favour, but he himfelf muf, loon after, fall
to the Itrengthcned arm of the viAor. Let us fuppofo
a third cafe, that the Emperor fiould endeavour et
maintain between his formidable neighboure a balance
of power. Before fuch a fyflem of policy would be
adopted by the Court of Vienna, its power of carrying
it into effed would probably be annihilated. For,
according to the fpiric of partition, the French and the
t ullians would have agreed on a partition of his domi.
niun.. Beides, it would be extremely difficult to turnt
the balance between fuch enormous males of matter.
Convulfions, impulfes, agitations would arife that
would let all attempts to counterpoife the one againfk
the other abortive.
It is natural, in indulging theft hypethefes, to fpe-
culate concerning the probable condud and fate of our
own island, with that of Irelaid, which nmidfe fuca
grand views and movements on the Continent, would
be left to the management of Great-Britain. We, that in
our retrotejpoflerity, would no doubt ad from a jeas
