of a rebel's being boried in effigy."

thereof as follows, viz.

To the Citizens oj Philadelphia County,
. AS it ii the duty of every good citizen
to examine into tlrt charafter and conduct of
every person \vfio may come forward to serve
the public,' the following fafts and observa
tions relating to a candidate for a feat in.the
Houfc of Representatives of the State of
Pennsylvania, may be very serviceable at the
present period, as the mind of every friend
to his country rnuft be considerably agitated
refpedVing the event of the ensuing elec
tion..—J, K—r t who now folkits your fuf
frages, has filled the honorahle office of
High Cunftable of the Northern Liberties ;
with what degree of Satisfaction to the pub
lic, I fiiall not prrtend to Rate, as in that ca»
pacity no doubt he is well remembered by'
many of you. He afterward* obtained the
colleftion of taxes for tlie Eafl and Well
Northern Liberties, and in his duty as col
leftor of this tax, we shall take the liberty
of reviewing his conduit. In the ftrfl place,
can that person be considered wortTiy of the?
public ' favor, who, regardless of all moral
obligatiens by taking advantage of the dis
tresses of tbofe who applied to hirn, retailed
out to theis the public money at the enor
mous discount of 20 per cent; they having;
at the fjime time orders drawn by the proper
officers upon him as colkftor, but obliged
by neceility to comply, fomr of their families
wantipg bread at the time. Secondly,, is
he who can a£t thus to individuals a fit per
son to hold the office ot Legislator, or can
he, who so barefacedly imposed upon them,
be supposed capable of doing Jaflice to the
Public ; certainly not.
Fellow citizens: these are fa£ls—be no
lowger the dupes of such designing charac
ters, whole only objedt is their oww private
intereft, whose only claim to
patronage, is the impudence -and aflurance
with which they have too fuccelsfplly impo

To the Mctbodift Ehßort in the City and
I call on you, that you come forward on

And as God in his klndnefs has strangely *
made us free, let us fhflV our brethern of
