The following is f;id to be a copy of a ktter
from the celebrated Mrs. Robinfon :
tAux Bain de la Rof',
A;v-la-Chapl,', Germany, July 20, 1786.
S I R,
With altoniliment I read in a Morning
Paper of the 14th, a long account of my daih,
and a variety ofcircumflances refpcAing my lyir,
equally void of the fmallck foundation.
I have the fatisfa&ion of informing you,
that fo far from being deal, I am in the moft
ptrifc(t fate of health, c:.ccpt a trifling lamencfT
of which, by the ufe of thle baths at this place,
I have every reason to hope I hall r-cover in a
month or fix weeks. I propofe palling my win-
ter in London, having been near two years upon
the Continent, though not at Paris half the
Left it liould be received and understood.
in the world that the account of my life is ge-
nuine, I beg leave to contradi;t two very mate-
rial circumflanccs refpecing my family connec-
tions. In the firit place, my father, Captain
Darby, w"hofe legitimate daughter I had thb'hap-
pinefs of being, died fi months fince on board
his own hip, of 74 guns, in the Ruffian fervice,
beloved and regretted by all his conne&ions and
acquaintance. My mother is of Welch extrac-
tion, ani defended from the Seys's of Boverton
Caftle, in Glamorganfhire, a family truly rc-
fpe&alble, and well known in that part of the
world. I was born at Briftol, and received my
education under the care of Mifs Hanna More
Illminietr is'a place to which I am a total llran
As a man of feeling, I request you to con-
tradiA the report with candour, 'and all pollible
expedition. I have brothers in Italy, who will
experience the greatest anxiety, should fitch a
detail reach their ears; and I am fully convinced,
that your knowledge of the world, and liberal
fentiments, will induce you to render justice to a
person, whofe abfence requires an advocate,
and who has the honour to fubfcribe herfclf,
Sir, with eieem,

The fale of the crown lands is proposed, in their
rude uncultivated fate, at fifteen Ihillings per
acre, and a fmall fettled fine to the crown; to
be accounted, though copyhold in fa&, in fome
mnafurc as defeendiile freeholds. If cultivat-d
land lets at twenty lhillings an acre, upon an,
average comparifon of one county with another,
and it is considered that tlhef lands are )yt to
be cleared, and that at leaf three or four yearn
mult ecapfe before the beft of it can be paffed
through the federal flags, prior to being ready
to receive grain, and this at a very confidcrable
expence, it feems that the price is upon the
whole too high ; nor can it be worth while to
any to become purchafers but thofe who with to
increaf' their parks by taking in the neighbou-
ring walls, or very cpulent farmers and land-
holdeis, who defire to monopolize both land
and interest.
Though every thing feems peaceable and quiet
in Italy, hill fumne fleps are taking there, that
might indicate an apprehenfion, though perhaps
a remote one, of a war. The fortifications of
Crotona, Valencia, and the citadel of Alexan-
drctta, in the Italian dominions of the King of
Sardinia, are till carrying on; and from the
number of hands employed, and t$e acivity
with which the planners of the works prefs the
finishing of them, one might be inclined to fuf.
peat, that the wife and provident Court of Tu-
rin forefles a form, and is preparing, like a
prudent pilot at fea, for weathering it out.
Among the important articles of hufinefa con-
cluded at the Board of Treafury held laR Satur-
day, a warrant was signed by the Lords Com-
mitlioners, authorizing and empowering the
Potlmafter General to appoint Mr. Palmer, of
Bath, Surveyor and Comptroller General of the
Pull-Office, with a faiary of fifteen hundred
pounds a year, and a per ccntage on the future
increase of the Pot-Office revenue.
The Dnchefs of Kingfton is at this time at
Calais, waiting tor the neeeffary equipment of

Peterfburgh, on a vilit to the Emprefa of Rffia.
That our readers may form a clear idea of the
late dispute in the Province of Holland, we hall
lay before them a traiflation of the famous re-
folution of March 1672, which was conliiined
at the laft meeting of the States:

At thi criticaljun&ure, when the people
of two fates are in open rebellion again law,
and the legiature of another i9 pursuing a fyf-
tem of villiny, I know you muft feel anxious
to hear of every public tranfaaion in detail.-
For this reason I beg leave to fate to you the pro-
ceedings of theGentralAffemblyof Rhode Iland.
Yesterday a bill was brought into the houfe,
which had been ,concerted in convention the
evening before, a.d may be jufly termed the
bloody at, if it should ever pal into a law. It
contains a tell or oath, by which every perfon
mull fwear to ufe his influence to fuppoft the
paper on a par with cath, and to take it at par
in all commercial tranfattions. Al officers who
do not take it in o2 days from its pafling, are
fufpended-matters of vefels cannot enter or
unload till they have taken it--cvcry male of
21 years mull take it, or he disfranchifld-c-law.
years are prohibited front acting as attornies, un.
lefs they take it, and to crown the whole, the
members of the next legiflature mull take it be-
fore they can fit in cetlier laout.
Such an open a& of tyranny-fuch a bare-
faced ad of villainy-fuch a flagrant attack upon
the conftitution-you mull think alarmed even
the paper menmbrs themfclves. After tonic de-
bate upon the matter, in which Mr. Marchand
reprobated the measure, in language that did
honour to a freeman, as did Mr. Brown and
several other gentlemen, the question was put,
whether the houfe would ad upon the bill, or
refer it to the next feflion (which will be in about
three weeks) and in the mean time order it to be
published for the consideration of the people;"
it panfed for referring by a great majority. You
will probably fee the a& in the papers, and judge
how little the members underftahd finance, or
how daringly they port with the rights of men.
In thefe tranfaLions all muft be fools or bInver
who attempt to force paper currency upon Reo-
ple. They either do not know that penal laws
never yet gave credit or circulation to any me-
dium, not eren to fiver and gold; or they bold-
ly infult the common fenfe of their confiituentn.
I have attended the houfe of affembly con-
flantly. I endeavoured to discover the springs
Of their conduac. I never faw fo great a pro-
portion of ignorant men in a public body.-
There are but four or five that appear to under-
land the nature of money and the operation of
law; and but a part of there who can exprefi
their sentiments with propriety. You never
heard language and common fenfe fo tortured
and murthcred s' in ihis hour. You would
have been sometimess diverted to a high pitch,
even amidft the ravages that were made upon
ljutice and freedom, to hear an ignorant ptti
fogger larranguing upon the evil of iln
ars aw as aof im* sre a AV wyitfi aJlc.
SBut the majority cannot have been knaves.
Had four or five of the houe btn honoured
with a Gaalva, infleadt of an eleton to a feat
in the legislature, the fate would probably have
been, at this time, in harmony. The& have
mifed the other members, aid olp pption
made them obAt
I .. .

I1 forgot to mention, that a motion ifo
amending the revenue laws, and enabling the
Sloa oflcer to iffle certificates, was rejected. It
femas Congre muft take paper of this fate, or
nothing. The spirited and fenlIble renmontlance
of thedelegatcs of Rhode-Ifland to the General
Aflembly, read at the opening of lthe fefion,
has wrought no effect. The members fem cal-
lous to every idea of public utility, they hear
nothing but what tends to level all orders of the
Rate in promiscuous poverty. Nor is there any
hope of better time; an the members cliolcin tor
the next fix months are the fame men, or worfe.
P. S. The )iapr of this Rate is refuted in
ahnoft all tranfactions-.when it is taken, it is
from 4 to 7 for one. A member of the Afem-
bly yesterday told the Houfe, that the paper
is yet too fcarce-his confituents, one half of
them, have none of it yet." Poor fhort fighter
mortal! He ought to reflc&, that his conltitu.
cents, who have property to fpare, can procure
calh-thofe who have no property, cannot get
even paper, that is hawked about the frects."
We arc informed from Turks Iflands, that a
veffel which arrived there a few days fine from
Jamaica, brought accounts of a dreadful hurri-
cane having happened at that island on the 23d
of laot month.
The Porcupine floop of war was daily ex-
peded at Turks Iflands frum Jamaica.

Highly commended the zeal of the noble

i.erch.arnts had invented every poffible device t

* thank themi'lves. In (hort, every feflin pro
duced a kind of warfare between the public an
the trader, to prevent the latter from dcfraudin|
til revenue. He did not involve every indivi
dual in this charge; but it was impofhile t
make the discrimination. He was for altering
the obi riious claufe pointed out, but then thi

The. qlrftion was put, and the bill paflli

The Duke of Portland rofe to move that the
chairman fthuldleave the chair. His Grace en-
tercd very largely into the general policy of our
administration in India, and de-anted with much
ltrength and force on the principles of the bill
before the IIoufe; but as the arguments were
the lame as have been already givrn to the pub-
lic, when the bill was in its progrefs through the
Common., we flfall forbear to trouble them with
a fiperfluous repetition.
Lord Walfingiam, in a very elaborate reply,
took a general survey ofthe Britifh adtnin;ilia-
tion in India. His Lordfhip poke very forcibly
in favour of the bill, and of the principles which
it tended to enforce.
Lord Vifcount Stormont poke against the
principle of the bill. The bringing of it into
parliament at o late a period of the fIlion was,
ie faid, an unworthy device to gain time, and
to avert for a feafon that disturbance which muft
unavoidably follow, when the situation of the
Company's affairs in India came to be fully
known. It was alfo, his Lordfhip contended,
an injury to the prefent ftockholders, as every
increase of the capital of the Company tended in
a ratio advancing with its amount, to diminish
the credit of their refpe&ive securities.
Lord Loughborough arraigned, in very frong
terms, the fallacy of the accounts laid before the
Hoofe by the Company, and inferred therefore,
tlia there appeared to much of premeditated
imposition in their statements, that they were
totally undeferving of the countenance or pro.
teaion of parliament.
Lord Bathurif fpoke a few words in favour of
the bill.
A division then took place on the Duke of
Portland's motion, That the chairman should
lave the chair ;"-the numbers were, Contents
