derable number of inhabitants, lamenting the loss

Melancholy Accident- ,
Died, on Tuesday the 13th ulr. Mr. Archibald .
Campbel), dare-keeper, of Maurice River, New-
Jersey. On the Friday evening following, his wi
ow and orphan children were alarmed by a fire
breaking out in the upperpart of the house ; they
buried out, but soon found ;that Mrs. Campbell's (
eldest Ton, aibout 10 years old, and a black child, ,
were left in the chamber ; upon which a black wo
pian ran up to rescue them, but unfoitunately pe- (
rifhed with the children* in the devouring flames. ,
The neighbours assembled but found it impjflible ,
to flop the fire, or to save the poor black woman, ,
who was discovered during the fire, with one of f
the children in her aims laying across the floor j
beams. All the furniture, and about 600 dollars <
incafh, were totally 108. t

ANOTHER COMMUNICATION. \
IT is one of the hardest things in nature, to a
candid mind, to be compell'd to read lies indead of 0
p truths. 1 read the Aurora, in order to fill my mind n
with the general affairs of Europe, and particularly 0
with the geographical accounts of Germany and v
Italy, and the probable issue of contending armies: „
For foms how or other, Ido think that paper de n
rives fmgolar communications fiom ingenious/ reign tl
jid : But, in t'his reading, I ara always rebtift'd
with the raoft foolilh and obvious falfhoodt, that
, ever (lamed any public print. Bache >;ive3 us a com- c |
munication this morning, designedly to rouse the (hip
wrights and other vetert of the uorthern and sou
, thern liberties, by attributing the stoppage to (hip
building, and non-employment of the citizens, to
the treaty with England. Who the writer of that e ,
paragraph is, I do not know—certainly he is )jo;h
knave and fool. L,et him go along the wharves, t j
and observe the unemployed, and hitherto utibeheld g]
number as shipping—and then ask—does the treaty rj
detain them here, and in equal proportion in the Uni
ted States ? No—thou liar, no—lt is solely omj»£
to the great European harvefU, and
ted prices, whieh forbid all/trade with *¥
England, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Germany, I
from America, and to our high and excessive prices,
and to no other cause whatever. The treaty then j\\
has nothing to do with it Make your farmers re- jo
duce their prices, and our fhip-earpentets and all I
our citizens, will as usual, be fully employed, and la
all men thank God that we had a Washington to b
make the treaty , 1 and pray we 'may have an Adams I;
to support good faith with all nations, & never, no /
neAer, a Jcfferfon, nor any hell-kicking treaty tnem- In

Among the killed there is an Auflrian general. 1

fantry ptirfued the enemy. Our cavalry, after hav- t
3r ing routed the enemy, pierced in a column the line e
rs of their infantry, which was effectuating their re- v

d lattarked on the 19th, in his position at Breu(hal,
o by theganifon of Philipfburg, reinforced by a de- cc
ts Jachment from that of Manheim; and 4000 of the 10
o Neighbouring peafanta. Though Tery inferior in
i- numbets, the general determined to anticipate the 1,1
enemy, and attacked them himfelf on the 18th in
the morning. *" W
The attack was executed in three columns, com- 9
irr.anded by adjutant-general Ruel, and the two
chiefs of brigade, Bontrone and Ferty, with much m
fitih, lecx-cy and courage. Ihe French wearied of
firing their muftetsand eanponadiHg, had recourse P*
at lad t« tneir usual method of charging with the
bayonet. The garrjfon was pursued under the can
non of PhiKpfburg. \\
The detachment" of the garrison of Manheim
regained their lodgings by flying at full gallop j en
