Extn& of a letter from a merchant in Stratford,
(Conni&icut) to his friend in New-York, dated
9th inft.
" I have been op part of the night in confe
queni e of an alarm from Newfield, occasioned by
the most (hocking tranfaftion 1 ever knew in thip
town. AHont ten o'clock at night, the dore be
longing to Mr. Isaac Tomlinfon, which we used to
OCT upy, was discovered to be on fire ; the neigh
bours were called, and put it out, when they found ;
a boy lying in the (lore was murdered, by being firft
knocked in* the head with a (hoe hammer, and then
his threat cut. The (lore was robbed of a sum of
money, which Mr. Deferred, the owner, fays, was
about one thousand dollars. The inhabitants mus
tered out in all direfiions—two came to me, and I
got a number out from here, and sent to dop all
the passes, to prevent, if possible, the escape ef the
villain or villains. The store was set on fire, no
doubt, to prevent discovery. It is. fuppefed the
b(>y let some perf®n or perfons.mte the store, as
there was (landing on the counter, near where he
lay dead, some liquor, and the nppearance of some
one having been drinking. The boy was (Jreffcd,
artd with his hat on. I have as yer, this morning,
heard nothing further of thi6 melancholy bufinefa."

We are authorifcd to inform the public, that the

I have the honour to inform yon, that the divi
sion of the army under general Klebei, left Duffel ],
dorT on the 28th of June. The division underge ]
rieral Grenier passed the Rhine at Colognt on the
29th, and joined tl.e tf»oops under Kleber. This J
corps arrived en the 30th as Sieg, on the left bank
- of which the eijtmy had Rationed about 1200 light'
1 troo»8. Adjntant-genual Ney attacked with his -f
v ufua! impetimfity, took about sixty of the ca
valiy, bdides killing and wounding a tolerable num '
e ber. The lb:* regiment of ChalfeHis exhibited the
- ilrongeft proofs of courage in this action and per- 5
I foriHed all their movements with the greatest celerit)
> and preiifion. ' , , 1
General Klebei* halted, otr the Ift of July, or
3 thel«ft bank of the Sieg, in order to wait the arris
val of provisions, and to give time to general Le- c
r febvre, who had dtreftcd his march to Siegen, Ui
reach the place of his defoliation. This division oi f
t the aimy had ordtrs 10 advance this day in front of [
- Ukeradt.
In order speedily to eflefl my junction with ; gen. t
Kleber, I made that division of the army which was -
encamped between Coblentx and Andernach pals
the Rhine this morning. The paffsge was perfor
med in prefencc of a corps of 5 or 6000 men ; the
f whole of which would have been made prifonrrs of
war, had it been possible far the cavalry to qryfsthc ,
liver footer. As it was, we took two pieces of j
camion; and about 200 prisoners.
To morrow I fhsll have the honour-to fend y4B
the particulars of this affair, in which ieveral regi

I have ordered one column to march to Monta
