A TALK to the Governor of St. Augus
tine, East-Florida, front the Mai Jiog
_ and other Chiefj of the tipper and Lower
Creeks, ojfembled bit e for the purp9fe
r of cultivating prate and good under-
Jlanding between tbe eitizem of tie Uni
- ied States and tbe whole Creek Nation-
YOUR Excellency'* talk, advising us
- to tata; the ditiieo* of the iJnited State*
by the hand, lillen to their good talk*,
~ restrain our young people, and restore the
1< hjbrfes and riegroe* plundered, by bad men
. among us, i* a talk which we much ap
l prove of, and hope, from the steps we
s have lately taken, to preserve a lasting
. peace, with the Citizen* of the United
: . States, and our friend* the Spaniard*. It
• is our determination to throw no good
> talk* away, but to held fall by the hand
> all nations of white people.
The Mad Dog, when in the Lower
1 Towns, was informed, that you, or some
»' of the people in your government, advises
and encourages the red people to ileal and
commit other a£U of h'lftilities oh the
frontier* of Georgia, who are the friends
and citizens of the United State*. White
people in your government has joined
Indians in stealing horfea and disturbing
the peaceable citizens of Georgia. We
do not approve of fuGh condu&, and your
excellency mull certainly know that such
proceeding* will bring ruin and deftruc.
tion on u*. J _ —- ' * "
We have to request of yo»i , Exr( , ]j£ncy r
that when any Indian*, Siminolies or o
ihers pay you a vlCt, that you will give
them good advice with refpeft to the ci
tizens of the United States, and charge
them not to commit hoflile afU on the
frontiers of Georgia, by Scaling of hdrfes
or diiturbing the peaceable citizens.
-Your talk to the heads of the nation, in
forming them that the Mad Dog had ga»e
away all the Indian land on the weft fide
of the Oconte, is a rfnvincing proof of
your encouraging the red people to com
mit hoikilities. The Mad Dbg has never
fold or gave any land to the governor of
Georgia, on the contrary, his bufinef* was
to preserve peace for hi* nation, and is
now here with the chiefs of the nation 011
the fame business, and the chiefs are «f
opinion, that never received any in
formation refpeffmg the file of lands by
the Mad Dog, but that your talk, inform
ing the chiefs or the pretended sale, was
calculated to confufe our nation, and the
c'liefs expeifl, than on their return your
excellency will fend no more talks refpeft
ing the sale of lands, with a view of con
futing our nation.
Your Excellency in your talk, recom
mends the reftortnc of property plunder
ed, to the citizen< of the United States j -
the negroes and horses we are refto'ing as
tafias we can, but:your citizens are put
ting it out of our fubjedtS, and giving us
great deal.of trouble; not long since, ,
your express-man and Interpreter, John
Hambls\ wh le in our nation with y&ur
talks, had two horses belonging to the
people in Georgia, who live in St. Mary's,
and were just itole from there and fold to
him ; wliith, we the chiefs desire, the go
vernor of St. Augustine, to order the said
John Hambly to lend immediately hack to ,
the station at Colerain, and all other hor
ses your fubje«sls have got, that have been
stole from that quarter.
The Mad Dog and chiefs, also request
your Excelicncy to fend ftri<st order to a
flation, we hear you have fix or seven mile*
from the Cowford, on this fide of St.
John's, diretfling them, in frnore, not to
corrupt our young people, by encouraging
them to commit hostilities on the frontiers ■
of Georgia ; for, if after this, any depre- J
dations should be committed from that
quarter, we (hall' blame your government
tor it, as we ate fully informed, that not" 1
long ago, three of your white fubjefls was
with some of our red people at the burn
ing a house, and cutting off the hair from
the head of a white womaii oh Turtle'
River, Such depredations as these, your
Excellency muit certainly know, will bring
ruin and' tkftruilion 011 us, as you tell us 1
in your talk ;• and we, the chiefs, are not
insensible of it. We hope your Extellen- ]
cy will lose no trine in ordering those
white men in your government, and the
red men, that may visit you from time'to
time, to refrain from committing hostili
ties on the inhabitants, and citizens of the
United Sutos.—lf your Excellency does
not stop these btd white men in your go
vernment, we the chiefs lhail be obliged
to take such fttps ss we think necelTary : —
: But as we do not wiffi to offend your Ex
cellency, we hopt you will not give us
' the trouble, but convince us that yo'a are,
what you always ;all yourfeif, the Father
and Friend of the Red People,
Chri for Chiefs.

For the Gaxcttc of the United States. 1
Mr. Editor, |
IT ij not at all times that persons 1
in a public line ate entirlcd tcr prarfe j 1
and it very frequently happens, that I
when they molt defervc it (or rather I
when they have most laboured to obtain <
it) the reward is but partially i
However, a discerning public will never (
fuffer teal merit, tho' obfciired, to pass 1
without its jult tribute of praise. I
only intend, after thus prcmifing, to
make a few remarks on the performance
at the New-1 heatre last Ftiday even
ing. The comedy of the Farm House c
was not intended, i suppose, to display f
much talent ; for altho' contentment j
may be, in general, the inmate, yet,
rultic entertainment and manners suit ]
not the gay and sprightly turn of city
life. That the performers did juflice
to their parts, must be admitted ; espe
cially Mis. Francis and Mr. Chalmers;
and the comedy went off toletably well.
Mr. Demarque deserves great crcdit t
sot his excellent performance on the Vi- t
olincello ; especia lly when it is coufi- j
dered, that, alt ho' he has played in the ]
firft bands in Europe, it was the 'firft 1
time he faced an audicntc on the stage ; 1
and the natural timidity excited on tlirfe j
occasions, frequently gives rife to an \
jnfipidity of performance, or foinetimes !
a total incapacity of exertion ; but Mr. t
Demarque overcame, by a Heady and j
cool' recollection, all the horrors of a 1
fiilt appealance ; and, by his judicious i
variations of the F.nale, in inkle and 1
1 ariso, not enly evinced hi» uftc in 1
: j eompofi'ion, bti* aifo lii« fit ill !n
Ij Mis. Deiuarqoc had bth little to d'/
• | hut that little was done well, as what'e- '
ver (lie lias tu da always is: and it is re
■ ' commended to her, to follow up that
modeil, but excrtive, mode of condufl,
: (lie has always exhibited ; and a gene
' rotis ptibli.c will-not be backwaid in be
llowing that reward which ftlent, tho'
St&ire merit, always defeives.
The following is the article ill the Aura.-*
which occalioHjtl the StriaLrcs of ?.

A noble fuhjcdt has offi,-ied for the dis
play ot " Pete: Porcupine's (alias I imo

prc-fentation, falfehobd and defamation*.
Warren, Esq. his been tried and
acquitted by the Britilli iffuse of Lords|
on several charges, of winch the Houie of
Commons has mahe.cefly accused Li in of
being guilty. Htre is a fine opportunity
lor expatiating on the <iuifdorn, jvjlice,
magnanimity and -virtu.- of the Britjh go
vernment, that generouflv acijitted a man,
who was proved to have' been only guiity
ot the murder of a few thoufancis of hit
fellow of the robbery, piling
and destruction of the native* of India,
who poflcfied wealth enough to attradl
his notice; of flarviwg some hundred
thousands of h.umjn beings to death to
gratify his avarice; of depopulating the
shores of India, and rendering that once
flourilhing country, a wilderness for beaiis
of prey to roam through, with a few more
deeds of the like nfigntfuunce. Timothy
Hedgehog may find this well wflrth his
attention, in future panegyrics on the
British government, particularly if he in
tends writing a third part of the •' Hon*
TO Gnaw" He will also discover in the
charters and conduit of Lords Thuri&w
and Mansfield, ample matter for admira
tion and praise- For they could prostitute'
truth, honour, jujtice anil frinci/les, with
as little limitation or remorie as Timothy
himfelf. '
But here comes the bright and glorious
example of British juflice and humanity—
Jossr H Gerald, who had fc«en tried
and found guilty by an honefi bench < {
judges and an independent jury; of the
baft, the abominable, and horrid and the
infamous crime (remember these beautiful
epithets as defcrtptive of that act, are cul
led from the second part of the " Bone"J
of nuijhi/ig for a refo-m in parliament,
received no other punishment than a ciofc
confinement in prison for fevrral months,
from whence he was lately taken by some
rufiiant, who tore him from h s onlv com
panion in that dreary abode, an infant
daughter, and ironed ai d lent him to
Portsmouth, in order that he might be
tranfporicd to Botany Bay.

andtbumane proceedings cf a Bririfh ad

If verified to the tune of God lave greit

Britain, or todprame Fiance, will be anx
ioufiy fought after by one, and cultivated

i he life of an iujlcx is, one wotiid

In law books, which ought to be at
