Kingdoms, l!?c. isfc.
THE great applaife which this excellent
book has a sure proof rf its |
merits—The vast sale which it has had for |
leveral years, is a criterion by whLh the ]
public opinion of its worth can be known. ,
During the life of the learned author, it went
through the annual file of a very Urge irapref j
fion—every fncceeding edition received iome i
improvement the result of his deep researches
and. great judgment—he lived to make it as
perfeil as in tl.s »ature of things it sould be—
he is dead ! Whilst the Engh(b language is
read, the History of Modern Europe will re
main a monument to his fame 1 It is as enter
taining at inllruiftive ; as interesting as pro
found. The plan of the work is copious, but
by ax happy arrangement, the deader is at once 1
presented with the cotemporary history of 1
every part of Europe. The book now offered !
to the public is from the last and molt correal
copy, to which fhis (hall be no way inferior.
IT contains—
An history of the decline and fill of the Roman
empire. The rife of modern kingdoms, ge
nerally. A particular history of the French
monarchy. Do. Spain from the dominion
of the Vifig»ths. Italy, with the rife and
progress of the Temporal Power of the
Popes. Britain, from its relinquifhment by
the Romans. Ireland. The German em
pire, from Charlemagne. The empire of
Conftantinuple to its overthrow. Empire of
the Aribs. Rife and progress of the Turks
and falj of the Greek empire. History of
Portugal ; View of the progress of Naviga
tion ; Conqtiefts in the East arid Weft Indies ;
Discovery ofAnier ca,&c. Hiftoryof Sweden,
Denmark, Nor* ay, Ruflia,Poland and Prus
sia: Ncfth-America, as c6flu«fled with Eu
ropean history. A very c«mprehenfive and
highly ufeful chronology.
I. The whole shall be comprized in five large
odlavo volumes, printed in the best manner,
on a fiipertine paper.
11. It is intended to deliver ene "o'ume every
two months, at the price of Two Dollars per
volume in boards, payable on delivery.
111. As it may be inconvenient to deliver them
to diftar.t fiibfcribers in fitigle volumes, those
who wilh it, may let them remain with the
publishers until the whole are published.
The work is at press and will be printed on
1 beautiful new tvpe calt for the jjurpofe. The

sured, that nothing r.ow forefeen shall delay its
regular procedure ; so that in one year at far

RAN AWAY from the fuhferiber, on tiie 18th 1
of June inft. TWO NEGRO SERVANTS ; ;
viz a negro woman named Pat, a wa(hcr-wo
man and cook, of about fifty tw« years ofage— '
tall and weil shaped, of a black complexion. She 1
has bad teeth, those of her under jaw are much 1
difcoloure.l and project a good deal. She has a j
full head of wooly hair—a very croft forbidding ,
countenance, it very impertinent, and laughs and
talks loud. Pat was born in South-Carolina, and
speaks bad Englilh, with the negro dialeiX. She
has on the upper part of her breafl, two pretty
large lumps of flefli resembling Weis, or rather
with the appearance of the marks of 1 burn. She
carried away with her several changesof cloathj,
and gowns of white muslin, and of coloured and
figured printed cottons fafhionably made up. She
also carried away with her, I
CLARA her daughter—a very float, robust, 1
flrong made of a short stature, and round {
Ihouldered—appearing t« ba about 14 years of
age v Clara has large flaring eytf, a flat nose, an 1
eval flat face, her under jaw projefiing a little, '
and good teeth. She is very artful and impu
dent, has a great fluency ps speech, uses good lan
guage, and has been taught to read.—She has the
appearance of ring worm» on her left cheek and
chin ; the ikin in l'pots appearing much paler than
the reft of her complexion, which is much Jighter
than her mother's—-Her hair is short and woolyi
She wore a pink grounded printed cotton with a
small black figure, with new fore farts.
Also ran away, on Wcdnefday the nth inft.
June, DICK and AMELIA. Dick, or as he has
lately tailed himfelf, Richard Weaver, is a'houfe
fervant,—he is about 5 feet high, rather
small made, is about 2; years old, of a good
smooth, black complexion—has a flat nose, with
very large open noflrils. He carried his head
and neck ai if he were ftiff in the neck and (honl
dcrs, which are high and tolerably square, and his
neck short—his legs are straight but small and
illy made, with scarce acy calf. He has hai bad
teeth, is left handed, and exceedingly awhward—
he has a full head of wooly hair, which he plaits
and drefles to the best advantage. His voi<-» is
small, his speech commoly mild and flow, and his
manners appear extremely finiple, but he is at
bottom an artful knave, and when spoken td is
very apt to be paflionare and imperti ent. Dick
is a native of South-Carolina, and speaks bad
Englilh—he seduced and carried away with him
Amdia. who he called his wife.
Amelia is a very complete, well inftrufled la
dies maid,'much below the common stature an 1
of a small make—her complexion is that of t dark
mulatto or meflizoe, nearly refetnbling that of the
Lascars of India, with black curling hair, and a
very low forehead—her right eye has a great
weakness, owing to the small pnx inkier infancy—
under her «ye» very black—a flat face, flat broad
nose, with scarce any riling at the bridge; a large
mouth, with thick lips, and good flrong teeth.
On the nape of her neck she has the marks of a
Seton. Drcffes with talle, and imitates the French,
flyle ; is very fetifible, and CTpr«ffes herfelf well.
She took with hrr a variety ot clothes, fafbion
ablymade—ftiehaifor more than two years pad
been liable to fits, which at times give her a wild
nefsin her ryes—herhealthis generally delicate—
flle it at present likely to encrcafe her family, and is
about 12 years of age—(he can dr«ls hair, clear
starch, has a taste for miHinary and mantua-ma
king; and as lie is very ingenious, can turn her
hand to anything and may probably offer herfelf
to some milliner or mantua maker as a work
woman. As Amelia has heretofore been a great
favourite of a very indulgent mistress, and 'tis
believed ha- been led away by the persuasion of
hi r psraniour Ui k, if (be will return to me, Ike
will be forgiven anu treated with the fame ten
dernefv (he has always received.
FIFTY DOLLARS Keward for each will be
paid for the delivery of Pat and Clara to the
fubferiber, or to' any goal in the United States, so
that I rr.ry get pofleflion of them—One Hundred
Dollars each for l Dick and Amelia, on the like
delivery. The fubferiber warns all master
of vcffi-ls, from taking these
from the United States, and requests such
of his friends and acquaintance as it may notfuit
to arrest them, to,give information, (hould they
hear of either of the fugitives, to the fubferiber
i by letter direfled to the post office, Philadelphia,
which will find him, wherever he may pass the
