BOSTON November 7.
The Legiflattire of this States will meet
in this town on Tatfday next—and the
Elei\»rs of Prefidervt and Vice Pre fide tit
will be cbofen on the Thursday following,
by joint ballot of the Senate and Houfc of
Extract of a Letter from Santandar,
CSpain) to a respectable bouse in t&is
city dated October 8, 180 a.
<' I have this moment received a letter
from Capt. Crocker, i f the Rodoiph Frede
rick who is now in Paris, and who was cap
tured by the fame privateer that t<sok me,
adviling, " That my trial comes on the
13d of September," and if it cannot be put
off the (hip and cargo will surely be con
demned. It seem* that the Council of Prizes
v have afled far different in regard to justice
from what has ever been represented to me
before, as money appears to be the guiding
principle they upon. The armttures
h»ve it in their power to offer a greater sum
without running any risque ; the captured,
therefore stand no chance. I underfhnd
that our Envoys are to leave Paris by the
Bth of Oilober, and in all probability a treaty
of some kind or other, will be made ; those
cases that are not yet judged, are in hopes
of a better chance. '1 he next post will tell
ro« whether I am of that numher. Encio
fed you hive a lift ofjvefkls, communicated
by Capt. Crocker, that have been tried at
Pa ris, from which you can form an idea
how the Council of Prizes have afled :
" Ship Pigou, Green, cleared with damages,
Ann and Susan, Packet, compromised for
half ship and cargo
Petapfco, Hill do. do.
Peggy, Davidfon, do. for 1000 guineas.
Ann, Lord, condemned
Kitty, Norton, cleared without damage.
Hester, Morgan, cleared with damage and
Columbia, Corraii, condemned, letter of
Woodruff, Sims, Hotfden, do. do.
Beeby, Gizure, condemned
Frederick, Clark, do.
Ruby, Re ff do.
Statin, Steward, cleared without freighter
damage 1 , after being twice cleared with
freight and damages, and being m
France two years.
Polly, Tiifts, cleared without damage.
Union, Lunt, cleared with damage and in
Republican, Simfon, condemned.
Portland, Stoddard, dn.
Pearl, Latimer, cleared with damages. »
Nancy, condemned to the Republic.
Molly, Bardoll condemned.
" Some of the abo*e (hips have been con
demned, when their were acknow
ledged to bt American. The ciptors of the
Ruby, Capt. Keef, has been heard to boast
that file c ft him but 5001. The greater
part of th» velTels cleared, were not worth
more than from 6000 to 10,000 dollars, a.nd
none but wbat their cargoes and mod of the
ships have been fold, and after they are
finally cleared, they rauft comproinife with
the captors for 30 or 40 per cent."
3 Capt* Young, arrived from Lilbor, in Jt
days, acquaints us, That the Poitugude
still entertain strong appretienfions of an in
vasion by the French through Spain.—A
large Spanish army was upon the frontiers
of Portugal, .which was feared would co- 'pe
rate ; but the Spaniards have been lately
laid under an obligation by their neighbours
who have protr&ed several Spanilh v>-ffels
to Lift>on ; —That the Brin(h expedition
fleet under Sir. j. Puhency were at GihrnU
ter ; and it was fuppolcd woiild proceed to
Portugal if that nation fhnuld require af
{illanCe ; —That it was generally believed
the French would hi Id polTefiion of Egypt j
Snd that Klcbrt- had fallen a vifliin to hu
determinant n to evacuate that country, a
gv.inft the advice of the officer w' o has suc
ceeded him ;—That the British cruizers
have lately sent several American veflelsin
to L fbofi ; and miong them a brig belong
jng to Mr. Kimball of Borton.
Capt. Ellery, from Malaga, and who paf
'fed Cape St. Vincents; only 19 days before
his arrival, informs that a large Englilh
fleet from Gibraltar pa {Ted up the Streights
about the time he came out.
V Yesterday el-ftions were held in this fhte
for ele&ots of president and vice president of
the United Stats s. At the close ofthe poll
for this diftrid the votes were for
' T. Duckett 152, ] F. Deakins 138.
At the Court-House it is said Col. Dea
kin* had three fourths of the votes.
On Saturday evening the citizens ofWafb
ington and George-Town were alarmed by
the cry of fire,it broke out in a handsome
three (lory building, the property of Mr.
Joseph Hc*lgfon occupied by the war De
The fire caught in a room on the second
floor and raged with such violence as to
render it imprafticable toextinguidi it. The
papers in the lower story only were sa
ved. . .
The loss to the War Office is, in feme
refpefts, irreparable. Mod of the papers of
the Accountant's Office were saved. Mr.
Hodgfon's loss is more than 4000 Dol
The Adjoining honfe built by Mr. Jona
than Jack l'on alio fpll a prey to the devetir « feene ot gr&f and ter
ror which ass. &Ed every feeling heart. Mr.
Jnckfon after feve-rai weeks illness died that
afternoon about 3 o'clock.—ln Ids than
four hours after/ this aftii&ing, this heart
rending fevne, tl»e family arc alarmed with
the cry of fire, the corps is hastily removed
and the widow and children are hurried out
of theij'houle which can no longer be a home
for them. Thus iu one? day are they depri
ved of a hufbandand father whose a&ive in
duitry, while living,-afforded them a compe
tent support, and a valuable house, which
would have prcferved them from want, is
rendered of no value.
Such a loss, with such a bereavement,
surely calls for public aflifimceandit is ho
ped, fonie influential and a-Ctive citizens,
will set on foot a fubfeription for tlieir re
lief.—There can be no doubt of liberal con
tributions if the bulinefs is commenced im
The remains of Mr. Jackson were inter
red on Sundav afternoon—l hey were at
tended to the grave by a very long procrffion
of citizens.
