The ufeful reading of the Editor of the
Walpole paper has furniltied him with the
following fenlible extraft, which we will in
sert together with t>is sensible commentary
" In the lite of Akenside, Johnson has
given a faithful and correft delineation of a
modern democrat—" He certainly retained
an unnecessary and outrageous zeal for
what he called, and thought Liberty ; a zea!,
which sometimes disguises fiom the world,
and not rarely fiom the mind, which it pos
sesses, an envious delire ofplundering wealth
or degrading greatness ; and of which the
immediate tendency is innovation and an
archy, an impetuous eagtrnefs to subvert
and confound wich very little care wiiat
fhatl be ellablifhtd—a more perfefl portrait
of a Jacobin diforganizer of the present day,
can not poflibly be drjwn than is contained
in the above Ikatchof the character of A
kenfide. v - (
It it a fad that the unprincipled Char i es
Foi, whom the filly dolts of American De

with Lord North, declare that ' the Peop e
had no wife, except within the walls of St
Stephen's Chapel. ' From venal and French
motives he is now a bcllower for re

BY THOMAS ]\I'KEAN,
Of the said Commoeiveahb,
WHEREAS !t is declared by
the Constitution of the-U
---nited States, that, for the purpose of:
elefting a President and Vice-Presi
dent, " Each state (hall appoint, in
such manner as the Legislature there
of may direst, a number ofEleftors,
equal to the whole number of Sena
tors and Representatives, to which the
state may be entitled in Congress
—And -whereas the Legislature of
Penniylvania hais omitted todire&the
manner in which this state (hall ap
point the Eleftors of a President and
Vice-President; to be chosen at the
next ensuing ele&ion for that pur
pose to be holden : and the ordinary
period prescribed by the Constitution
of this Commonwealth, for the an
nual session of the General AfTembly
will not arrive until the said next en-'
filing election of a President and Vice
President has been holden and com
pleted, conformably to the Constitu
tion and Laws of the United States:
And whereas it is incumjbent on the
Executive Magistrate of this Com
monwealth, as far as his power and
jurifdi&ion extend, to take care thac
the Laws be faithfully executed : and
more especially, that the Constituti
on of the United States, as well as
of the state, (the supreme laws of the
land) be preserved entire and opera-"
tive in all the provisions thereof :
NOW\ a&uated by motives of official
duty, imprefled with a just sense of
the importance of the objeft, and de
sirous to avoid, on my part, every
cause of reproach and responsibility,
I have deemed it expedient to con
vene the General AlTembly, to the in
tent, that, on this extraordinary occa
sion, the Legislature *iay poflefs an
opportunity of fulfilling its Federal
obligations, the state may enjoy its
legitimate influence in the Councils of
the Union, and the National Gov
ernment may derive energy and lia
bility from a regular organization
of its departments.
1 HEREFuRE, and by virtue of
the authority to me in such cafe giv
en, in and by the Constitution of
the Commonwealth, I have iflited
this Proclamation, hereby convening
the General Afiembly, to hold afef
fion on Wednesday the Fifth Day of

in the borough of Lancaiter : And,
of whiph time and place of convening,

to sow it over again. The dread of thia
