THE Pcafui frigte, commanded b Hi
Royal Hie iTnefs1pauT c WILLIAM HEN
Ra. accompanied by the RoTa Captain Herney
arrived at Paceutia, in Newfuo)dland, the 16tl
of July lall. His Royal Highicfa was expctlde
at Halifax in the course of lat month. From
Halifax, it was faid, he woqld go to Jainaiea
early in December, and woid proceed froui
thence in the Spring to New-Bruntwick and
(ilcbec.
Several letters from American officers on thi
weflern frontiers of Pelnfylvania and Virginia,
are published in the New-York papers by oailer
of Congrifs. The general tenor of them is,
that the Wj'balh, Shawanef, Cherokee, and
fome other Indians have manifested lihllile in.-
tentions agairtl the Americas.i and that they
appear to be encouraged in them by the Britifh.
Extras of a letter from a entkmman in Neaport,
(RhodWe fland) to his f irnd in Bo/on, dated
OaloQ r 7, 1786, and pulljred in dre A'.w-
Tori Mlounim Puft of Ottober 26.
At this criticaljunClure, when the people
of two flats are in open rebellion against law,
and the legilatutre of another is purfuing a fylf
tern of villainy, I know you mult feel anxioua
to hear of every public trar.falion in detail.-
For tlcis reafon I big hiave to Ilate to you the pro-
ceedinge oftliheGt t irlAfleinllyof Rhode liland.
Yellfrday a bill was hbrotght into the hoiife,
ulhich hadl bectn concerted in convention tile
eclning before, a.] nR::p.y le jillly termed the
bloody anrl, if it shouldd ever pafs illco a law. It
contain s ; tell or oath, Ity which evCiy person
niullt In ear to ulfe his inHflucene to filupprt tihe
paper on a par with calli, and to take it at par
in ill commercial itra.ficiionis. All offers who
do not take it in a2 days from its pairing, are
fizfpcnded-malters of vcfflI cannot enter or
unload till they lirive taken it--eery imale of
21 yea s mull take it, or be disfranchifcd-ilaw-
y31es are prolibittd from acting .s attornics, uol.
lefs they take it, end to crown the wiholk, the
members of the next l.' i;anure mull talke it be-
fore they can lit il citlhcr lhaiC.
Such an open ;ai of tyranny-fach a Lare-
faced at of villainv--fuch a flagrant attack upon
the conllitltion-vou mull thiiik alarmed ecven
the paprr memersbrs theirfilves. After tonic de-
bate upon the matter, in which Mr. Mnuchand
riplobated the meafurr, in language that did
honour to a freeman, as did XIr. Brown and
lIf;eal other gentlemen, the qucllion was put,
s" ulether the houife would ad upon the bill, or
a ef. it to the next fefion (which will be in about
tlitree weeks) and in the mean time order it to bI
pibililled for the consideration of the people;"
it paffed for refer ring by a great majority. You
will probably fee the art in the papers, and judge
how little the members undcrltand finance, or
how daringly they fpoit with the rights of men..
In Ithefe tranfadions all muJf be fools or Inavrs
lwho attempt to force paper currency upon 1jeo-
pie. They either do not know that penal :laws
nevcr yet gave credit or circulation to any me-
dlilnm, not even to filver and gold; or they bold-
ly ;iiIIlt the common fenfe of their conltituents.
I ha e attended the lioufe of affembly con-
flantly. I endeavoured to difcover the fprings
of their conduct. I never faw fo great a pro-
portion of ignorant men in a public hbdy.-
There are but four or five that appear to under-
fland the nature of money and the operation of
law ; and but a part of thlrfe who can cxprefs
their sentiments with propriety. You never
heard language and common fenfe to tortured
and murthered c.s in this houfe. You would
have been fometinmes diverted to a high pitch,
even amidtl the ravages that were made upon
jullice and freedom, to hear an ignorant petti-
fogger harranguing upon the evil of 'aittlind
awvja an aR of afomrbly, as a ~by whit(.lt aflicl.
But the majority cannot have been knaves.
Had four or five of the houfe been honoured
with a Ga/llws, instead of an eleion to a feat
in the legislature, the fate would probably have
been, at this time, in harmony. Theie have
milled the other members, and opposition has
mad them oblUfat.
