people from Long-Illand, again landed -at Leete's-

P H I L A D E L P H I A, July 4.
On the a8thult. hisExcellency Jona RUTiEDGE,
Efq. fet out from this dity, in order to resume the
reins of his government, where, we hear, he is im-
patiently expected by the long oppreffed, and cruelly
treated citizens of South-Carolina. We have the,
pleasure to announce to the wold, from good autho-
rity, that that State and Georgia are now entirely in
the r.ollelTin of the AMERICANS (Charleftown and
Savanna excepted) and as foon as their refpedtive
Governors, arrive will be again reftored to the Union,
in a full exefcife of their legislative and executive ca-
pacity, as fovereign and independent States.
North-Carolina is totally evacuated by the troops
of his Britannick IMajefty, and that State is making
every exertion, to repair the damages and ravages
committed by their cruel' invaders, who. will not find
it fo eafy in future to march through it.
The gallant La Fayette has received fuch firong re-
inforcements, and has acted with fuch military cau-
tion and prudence, as to oblige the rafli Cornwallis
.to retreat to the lower parts of Virginia, leaving its,
cr.pial in the pofliffion of its proper matters. The
rapid-marching Lord's army are reduced to the
fmall number of 3c.o, and will foon be .confined to
the narrow limits of Portimouth, if not obliged to
retreat to fucconr the diftreffed Clinton.
Parturiu t montar nafcitur ridiculus zMls.
We have it from the beft authority,- that notwith-
ftanding the enemy had penetrated into the centre of
Virginia, not more than, lv.r.-, ,- its inhabitantsbad
joined their forces, and among that fmall number
was not one native of the country.
Authentick advices from South-Carolina, as late
as May 4tb, inform ns that General Greene had in-
vefled the Britifh poft of Ninety-Six, (in that State)
which it was expected would fin'render in a fhort
time, and that the garrifon had made a family on our
forces, but wero reptrtfed with considerable lofs.
Since our laft the following prizes arrived at this
port, viz. The brig Malton, Capt. Hall, taken by the
Revolution, Capt. M'Nachtane ; fchooner Porcu-
pine, from St. Kitts for New-York, taken by the
Fair American ; fchooner Liberty, Capt. Hoiiiday,
taken by the P;r:Fn Sun.; and a brig from Tortola,
taken by the :1, p Congrefs, Capt. Geddes.
On Monday night, the iSth infant, a party of In-
diaris attacked a houfe in Lower Smithfield, North-
ampton county, and took three inhabitants prifon-
ers, viz. John Teel, William Courtrighit, and Ed--
ward M'Ginnis Capt. Shoemaker being alarmed,
with great difpatch aulembled 15 of lis neighbours,
who turned out with great spirit ; they were foon
joined by Capt. Hover, who added a number of fpi-
rited volunteers, to as to make the whole amount to
S5, officers included. Capt. Shoemaker then fet out
with eight of thofe fooneft ready ; the reft followed
in a ihort time after. They marched 36 miles through
the wilderness ; the badnefs of the roads can hardly
be conceived. About 4 o'clock P. M. they overtook
the enemy, encaiped: by the fide.of a large fwamp.The
Captain being apprehenfive the-enemy would difco-
ver him, and put the prisoners to death, thought it beft
to fire on them without further delay, which they ac-
cordingly did; killed one Indian outright, and it is
believed wounded two others. Two of the prifon-
ers, Teel and Courtright, when the firing began, ran
towards.Capt. Shoemaker's party, and were fired
upon by the emev1iy, who ftot Courlright through
the thigh, and Teel through his'overalls ;- M'Ginnis
had been murdered and fcalped that morning before
they were overtaken. The Indians immediately fled
into the fwamp, and, the party having been fo fuc-
cefsful as to release the prilbners, and being. much fa-
tigued, waited for the remainder of the party, which
came up in half an hour afterwards, The whole re-
turned the next day with the prifoners, one Indian
fcalp, and all the baggage of the enemy,
The acivity and bravery of the party cannot be
too much applauded, andmthe fuccefs muft prove the
greater enc,,rin.cciment to like exertions in future.
We aie iiuformed that the thanks of the Council have
been given .op the occasion, and that a reward of
twenty-five pounds will be fent to the brave volun-
teers. '
July i. Friday laft arrived at Chefter a flag front

zens of South-. arolina, who had been fo unfortu-
nate as to fall into the enemy's hands at the furren,

inform the public, that the above flag is one of fix,
appointed to bring to their friends in this quarter
fome of the very diftreffed, but firm, friends of the
United States, who have fuftained, With the greatest'
patience and perfeverance, the hardships of a rigo-
rous confinement on board Britifh prifon hips in
Charles-Town harbour; a cartel having been efta-
blilhed at that place for the exchange of all prifoners
(whether regulars or militia) to the s5tl of June
ult. Near 900oo regular American officers and soldiers
were alfo embarked at Charles-Town, to be landed,
at James-Town, Virginia; having been exchanged by
virtue of the cartel above-mentioned.
Notwithftariding no official account of the fuirren-

of the southern' army, has reduced Colonel Brown
(who commanded it) to furren'der at diferetion,
whereby near 800 prisoners had fallen into our hands,

aEtrir of 'a letter frort Amflerdam, dated Februar' r
28, 178 .
The difcovery made by the talking of Mr. Lau-
rens's papers has obliged Amfterdam to avow the
engagement with the Commiflibner of Congrets, con-
cluded i'n the y,.ar 1778 -She has thewn great fpiritf
by her answer to the States General-fhe has declar-
ed that what was done, was by her exprefs dirc&iopn,
and what (he. fteemned to be for the interest of Hol-
land.-The States mafurely c...-ifi u .. after warm
debates, determined to tacitly approve of the con-
.dn& of Amfterdam, but give a-n evalive anfwer to the
Britifh Court.-This foi cxafpera'ted them that they
immediately broke with us, by which means we are
happily deprived o0 Sir Jofeph Yorke's presence, and
the nation rdeafiid from a naval tyranny which they
have long groaned under.-A, L..l.h.n.:r is now
fearceiylfafe lire, and fome AmreiCritns being milltaken
for Englilfhlimen, have already hat feeling proofs of our
frienmlthip for you.-This dilfcovery has happened at
a lucky time, the neutral treaty betw een the northern
power had jult before been concluded.-The Ruffian
Ambaifia and Denm'ark it was expected would foon follow-fo1
that the levees at St. Jame,'s will be very thin of
foreign Miniriters.--'i he I'riperor of Germany is
talked (of asa':, afliftard to Gr .it-B-itaini but that.is
uncertain. The northern flee s will however be early
forming a 0,,: ,. r to iulfil tlhJir treaty. and the
moft vigorous, ineiafurc, wiii be p rlued here agaitnft
England. The EnglifL uiled to fay that tht.y dAc end-

Line, deied Cannp at Dobbs'r-Ferry, jul) 13, 178.
The greatest part of y-fterday we were amutled
with tLhe noife of a very heav) cannonade, and this
day we have tihe fubitantial pleafire of tearing the
ef'it&s of it. A fevere engagement in the tound,
nearly opposite Frog's-Poinit, took place between
two French frigates and a Brtifi guard flip of 32
guns, a 16 gun brig, and fome other armed veflils,
under cover of a battery, on Ihore. The coirllidt
lasted the greater part ot the c with much w armiih,
and ended in the furrender of. the Britilh vettels
and demolition, of the battery. The particulars
concerning the killed and wounded have not yet
reached us, as we lie fome distance from head-quar-
ters, and on the opposite fide of the North-River,
bat expect every hour to be favoured with them.-The
army of our benevolent ally makes an illultriout ap-
pearance, and that of our own is by no means con-
temptible ; to that from their combined prowefs we
may expect the moft brilliant fuccefs. A large harvest
of glory is juft at hand, and we are ready to put in
. ur pickles and reap. Who may live to enjoy the
fruits of it, the fates have happily concealed from
you and me ; but this we are lure of, that pofterity
will blefs the furvivors, and as they pafs the graves
of the unfortunate, will cry with gratclul hearts and
melting eyes, Peace to their manes."
