it need only be known, that in the year 1787
there was not two hundred tons of naviga

A correspondent informs, " That the
inditJment which was to have been present
ed againlt some members of a certain so
ciety, chiefly composed of the swinish
multitude, for talking about Tar and Fea
thers at a late meeting, is for the prefect
quafh'd ! An eminent character of the
law, having given it as his opinion—
" That uulefs the corpus of plaintiff was,
actually diverted of his
ced to the Hate of our firft parents—and
forcibly wrapp'd up in the American coat
of mail, with which, plaintiff was only
threatened, defendant would produce cause
of writ, which would occasion a non [urn
informatus." This sentence of the learn
ed gentleman of the law, has induced the
high offended party to drd£ a prosecution
whieh otherwise would have crushed a re
bellions Hydra, who dares to avow fentU
ments diametrically opposite to those of
the well-born part of the community."
Our correspondent, congratulates bis
felloivfivine on thus fortunately escaping
the disaster which threatened their diflb
lution—would recommend to them, cau
' tioufly to avoid a repetition of the two
obnoxious articles, Tar and Feathers.
The following may be depended on as
