AN ESSAY ON THE
Natural Equality of Men,
On the Rights that result from it, and on the
Duties which it imposes.
To which a MEDAL was adjudged, by the
Teylerian Society at Haarlem.
Corrected eind Enlarged.
By WILLIAM LAWRENCE BROWN,
ProfefTor of Moral Philosophy, and the Law
of Nature, and of Ecclesiastical History ;
and Minister of cl*eEnglifh Chuich at U
Aliquid Temper ad communem utilitatem af
The Firjl American Edition.
THE grand principle of Equality, if right
ly understood, is the onjy bafts 011 which
unverfal jultice, sacred older, and perfect
freedom, can be fr mly built, and permanent
ly secured. The vewof it exhibited in this
essay, at the fame time that it represses the
infolcuce of office, the tyranny of pride, and
the outrages of oppression ; confirms, 'n the
most forcible manner, the neceJTity ol fubor-
Hination, and the just demands of law tul au
thority. So far indeed, from loofeuiug the
bands of fbciety, that it maintains in violate,
every natural and every civil diftindtion,
draws;more closely every locial tie, unites in
one harmonious and juftlv proportioned sys
tem, antl brings men together on the even
ground of the inherent rights of hnman na
ture, of reciprocal obit ation, and of a com
mon relation to the community.

LONDON, Feb. 21.
The fleet aflembled at Spithead, under
Lord Howe, amounted to upwards of 106
fail. Sixty of which, were fliips of the
line. Some French frigates had been crui
sing in the Channel, and taken a number
of vefiels. Nine French Eaft-Indiman,
under convoy of two frigates, were arrived
at L' Orient.
By the last accounts from Paris, we learfii,
tjiat the Convention has decreed, " that fta
very lhall be abolilhed in all the French if«
lands." This, they fay, will be a death blow
On the 4th inft. the National Convention
decreed, that the colony of St. Domingo
foould be represented in the aflembly. On
that day three deputies came to take their
feats, viz. a negro, a mulatto, and a white.
They were greatly applauded and received
the fraternal embrace of Vadier the President.
This scene was accompanied by the reitera
ted cries vise l'egalite ! The negroes of St.
Domingo have sworn to extirpate the Eng
lish from that Island. On the Bth several %
people of colour acknowledged their grati
tude to the Convention for having given li
berty to their brethren.
In the opinion of a certain learned
writer, the present French government is
likely to end in a military Republic, of v
which Paris is to be the center, with the
other departments of the kingdom as its
circumference, and under its controuL—
In that cafe, adds he, let Europe trem
ble; depopulation and diminution of in
ternal resource will then rather stimulate
than impede conquest, as they did in an
cient Rome, which conquered the world
during the most rapid d.cline of the po
pulation and of the resources of Italy. *
It has been said, that the ft ate of ,
France is industriously mifrcprefented on
this tide the water,to anfwei a purpose,&
that only in Paris a temporary ir.conve
nience prevails, on account <ff butcher'*
meat, while the departments labor under
no such inconvenience; now on the au
thority of the Paris Papers, it is said
that the distress appears to be every where
much the fame. We (hould but tire th«
patience of our readers, in translating the
numerous complaints on this head, which
pour out into the capital daily.
In every part of the country, the Cluba
are engaged solely in deviling mean 3 tt>

HOUSE OF LORDS.
Lord Moira's Expedition.
The Earl of Moira, rose to take no
tice of some observations that had been
thrown out by an honorable gentleman,
Major Maitland, in another house, on the
expedition which he had the honor to com
mand. His Lordship explained at some
length, the general outlines of the expedi
tion, the views of his Majesty's Ministers,
and the communications which had taken
place with the Royalists 011 the fut>je<s.
He had been sent for, he said by his Ma»
Alley's Ministers, on the 17th of Ofto-
Eejj, and informed by them, of the fuc
#ith which it was intended the Roy
alists should be furniihed. He did not he
sitate to undertake the expedition propos
ed, nor that responsibility which he consi
dered as attached to it. The Royalists
had demanded a certain force, to co-ope
rate with therti, and his Majesty's Minis
ters had appointed a much greater force
than they had requested ; It only remain
ed that a junction (hould be fiied : and
before that could be effe&ed, some fignah
were agreed upon, and some frigates sens
to repeat those signal?; but they were
not av>fwered by the Royalists. On the
10th of November, some persons were
sent to concert measures with them, and*
different spot for landing Was fixed upon.
—The Royalists had required artillery
men, as they had scarce any one who
under flood the use of cannon. I lifLwJr
