We ate assured, and every benevolent mind mud
exult at the recital of the fa£i, that the fubfeription
c in New-York for the relief of our fuffering breth
ren in Chnrlellon, very soon amounted to Thirty
II Thousand Dollars; only a part of the molt
wealthy of th» citizens had been applied to—the
fubfeription was going on, and it was expc&ed to
c double that sum before it was finifhed. What a
f noble ! What a spirit of emulation mud
4 it excite in other cities ! This is the way to
lighten the burthen of heavy misfortune, to raise
the desponding heart, and once mote to "open the
windows of hope to the mind, which the sweeping
element had stripped of the produce of the indus
try of years. There is a most glorious of
s philanthropy and benevolence which pervades this
r continent —On ths- prcfeot occasion it will un
-1 doubtedly manifeft itfelf with distinguished luflre.
_ Every avenue thro' which this benevolence can be
| cOndu&ed (hould be opened. Jtet us remember
, that thelofsof the citizens of Charleston is at le-ft
half a million sterlinc ; large contributions
will be neceflary to realize to all the fufferers re
-1 Ipeftively a small proportion of this sum.
; Every religious and corporate society will of
course turn their earliest attention to the business,
and the good work will be recommenced by the
governors, magistrates and ministers of th?t gospel

' t The twenty firft annivetfaiy of our Indeppnd
. enceasa Nation was yesterday celebrated in this
City. The Day was nlhered in with ringing of
Bells, filing of Cannon, and other demonstrations
. of joy. At twelve o'clock, the society of the Cin
cinnati, the officers of the state government, and
the militia, met in the state-house, and from thence
proceeded to the house ofthe governor,to congrat
ulate him upon the occalton. After which they
partook of an elegant cold collation in the govern
or's garden.—Public dinners were provided in dif
ferent places in and near the city, where the citi
zens and uniform corps nffembled, to felicitate each
other on the return of that anniverfjjry which
marked a new era in the Annals of Man. The
birth day not only of the U. S. but of the Free
dom of the Universe.

for regulating the mateiials and manner of build

And whereas the above recited articles have been

I U What mod particularly engaged the attention of
J the public was, a charge againtl a woman of the
_j rtame of Ann Hoon, aged 25, for the wilful mur
-1 der of her infant child, about fourteen months old;
J the circumQances of this murder were as follow :
on Friday last this poor creature, who ia the wife
of a labouring man, was about to heat her oven,
and being (hort of wood, had broken down a rail
( or two from the fencing round the plantation of a
- gentleman in the neighbourhood ; some of her
t neighbors threatened her with a prosecution, and
told her (he would be transported for it.
1 his so much alarmed her mind, and the idea of
. being separated from her child, whom (he had al
ways appeared remarkably foad of, so wrought on
her imagination, that (he formed the horrible deiign
of putting her to death, in order that, by surrend
ering herfeif into the hands of justice, (he might
be executed for the murder, and so be forever re
: united in Heaven to that babe whom (he hadioved
more than life. As soon, therefore, as her hus
band was gone out to his labor, (he proceeded to
put this diabolical design into execution : (he filled
a large tub with water, and taking the child in her
arms, was about to plunge it into the yvater, when
. the babe, smiling in its mother's face, difavhned her
for the moment, and fee found herfclf unable to
commit the honid fad. She then lulled the babe
( to ileep at the, and wrapping a cloth round
it, plunged it into ike tub, and held it t»der water
till hfe became extinct , ,h« B took it%,t of the
I tu >i and laid it on the bed, and taking tier hat and
cloak, locked her street-door, and left her key at a
( neighbor's for her lmlhand when he (hould return
from his labor : die then proceeded to walk eight
ornuie miles to a -qiagiftratc, and, requesting ad
. m :7 on to hlm > to 'd Km the whole story, concluding
with an earned desire immediately to be executed.
