QUESTION twentieth.—" Have there not been
, different opinions in Congress, with regard to
" this (i. e. topropofats appearing fair, which were
" not Jo,) Jrom whence animojities have arisen ?"
There Jias never been any difference of fenti
menc in Congress, since the declaration of In
dependency, concerning any proposals of recon
ciliation. There have been no proposals of re
conciliation made lincc the 4th of July, 1776,
excepting twice.
The fir It was made by Lord Howe, who, together
with his brother, the General, were appointed
by the King, commiflioners for some purpose or
other. The public has never been informed what
powers they had. Lord Howe lent a meflage by
General Sullivan to Congress, desiring a confer
ence with some of" its members. There were
different sentiments concerning the propriety of
fending any members, until we knew his lord,
fliip's powers. A majority decided to fend, Dr.
Franklin, Mr. John Adaius, and Mr. Rutledge,
were sent. Upon their report, there was a pcr
feift unanimity of fentinient in Congress.
The second was the million of Lord Carlisle,
Governor Johnfton, and Mr. Eden, in 1778.
Upon this occasion again there was a perfedl un
animity in Congress.
Before the declaration of Independency, Lord
North moved several conciliatory proportions in
parliament, in which a good deal of art was em
ployed to seduce, deceive, and divide. But there
was always an unanimity in Congress upon all
these plans.
There was different opinions concerning the
petition to the King, in the year 1 775 ; and be
fore that, concerning the non-exportation agree
ment. There have been different opinions con
cerning articles of the confederation ; concern
ing the bell plans for the condtul of the war ;
concerning the best officers to conduct them ;
concerning territorial controversies between par
ticular States, &c. but these differences of opinion,
which are cflential to all assemblies, have never
caused greater animosities than those which arise
in all aflemblies, where there is freedom of

QUESTION twenty-firft.—" Are there no mal
, " contents in America, again/} the government,
" ■ who are otherwise much inclined for the American
" catfe, who may force the nation, or Congress, a
" £ a '"ft 'h'tr resolutions and interejts, to conclude a
" peace ?"
There is no party formed in any of the Thirteen
States against the new conftittnion, nor any op
position against the government, that I have ever
heard of, excepting in Pennfylvania,and in North-
Carolina. These by no means deserve to be coin
pared together.
In Pennsylvania there is a refpedtable body of
people, who arc zealous against Great-Britain,
but yet wish for some alterations in their new
form of government : yet this docs not appear
to weaken their exertions ; it seems rather to
exite an emulation in the two parties, and to in
crease their efforts.
I have before explained the hiltory of the rife
and progress of the party, in North-Carolina, con
lifting of Regulators and Scotch Highlanders ;
and General Howe has informed you of their
fate. This party has ever appeared to make
North-Carolina more staunch and decided, instead
of weakening it.
The party in Pennsylvania will never have an
inclination to force the Congress, against their
interests, to make peace ; nor would they have
the power, if they had the will.
The party in North-Carolina, whose inclinati
on cannot be doubted, is tooinconfiderableto do
any thing.

The following jhort account of the Palace of the
THUILLERIES, may amuji ftme of our readers,
THIS palace is so called, becaule built in a
place where tiles were formerly made.
It was begun in 155 4, by order of Catherine
de Medicis.—Henry IV finiflied it in 1600—
Lewis XIV carried it to perfection, and -rave it
all the beauty that is remarked in all its elegant
apartments. b
It is compofedof five pavilions, and four bo
dies of lodging rooms, in which the architecture
is admired, tho differently executed.—The sculp
ture is by the principal mailers.—The whole is
bmh upon a right line about 170 fathoms lono-.
[ lie large pavilion in the centre is adorned with
columns of marble.
In the infUc of the palace many things a le to
be observed. In the lung's great apar u,e„t the
niuit celebrated painters ot the 16th century emu
lated each other, under the conduct of Le'Bru •
The cielings are adorned with reprefe,nations
of armies, battles, and a great variety of allejo
rical figures, in painting, itucco, ami fculptme
1 he cieling of the gallery of the amballkdors
is much admired;it is copied after the Karnefiau
Gallery at Rome—painted byANNiBAt.CAR RACCI
The Theatre is one of the most (biking objects
that one hnds in the palace of the Thuilleries •
The grandeur, the difpofirion, and the riches of
it are all offurprizing beauty : It will hold debt
thousand persons, and all he commodtoufly seated"
The ceiling was painted by Covpel, after the
Cartoons of Le Bkun.
This palace has been neglected till within a few
years, when the present Queen had some oftlw
apartments fitted up in elegant taste, for her own
particular accommodation.
Some account of the gardens ofth: 7l:iiU;rtts in cur
was never a friend to the love ofGod,or
A man, toduty, or conscience, truth,probity,or
honor : It therefore can never make a good fub
jea, a good citizen, or a good soldier, and least
of all agoodcliriftian.
The world has substituted good manners in the
place of good nature : Whoever conforms to the
former, is dispensed with from any observance of
the latter.
