LONDON, September i. I
A lett«* from Avranshes brings tile following i
intelligence : ; .
«« Terrorism prevails more than ever in thisdif
trift. The treops which pass and repafs, commit a
- the Came horrid exoeffes which distinguished the c
reign of the Deaemvirs. The generals and other 1
officers, in the midd of universal didrefs, display 1
scandalous luxury, and the raoft infalting extrava- s
gance. Some of them are not ashamed of parad- c
ing the country on superb coursers, followed by a f
dozen of attendants, equally well mounted. i
« The Jacobins have only changed their name. I
Prcforibed under their furmer appellation, which t
hi'.d, Tcry justly, become infamous and odious, they [
have become soldiers, and have enlisted iu the bat- t
talions which are stationed in thU quarter. Some <
of them have obtained commissions; others are cor- t
porafs; and others are eommiffaries, employed in <
hunting whatever they please to diftinguilh by the I
denomination of Chouan». Eveiy day 150 vulun- I
teer3 are in motion. A company, composed of .
the mod determined rogues which the country eould
supply, accompanies them in th«ir march headed
by a known terrorid, narriad Gauchet, the worthy
pupil of Carpentier, 1 Cameleon, who has been
fucccflively a monk, an attorney, a fsldier, a par
lon, and a eommiffary.*'
" If these gentry obferre a house that bears ?.n
appearance the least decent, or even a cottage,which
afford* any profpeft of plunder, they immediately
exclaim—Chouans ! The house is instantly sur
rounded, and the sabre and bayonet applied to the
bosom of the unfortunate occupier, who i* com
pelled to unlock all his drawers, while the rsfcals
fei»e upon his money, his linen, and other effr&s :
they then Tifit the cellar, dart all the calks, and get
drunk in the midst of the deluge which they them
selves have occaiioned.
" Nobody can travel without a paflport, figntd
by two witnefTes, who anfwjr for tlicii civilm, and
confirmed by the dittnCt."
By a cartel from Bred we learn, that the crew
of the Montagne of 120 guns, arrived at that
port from I'Orient, and gave an account, that that
beautiful ship had by some means, got on a reef of
lharp rocks near I'Orient, from whlsnce it was hard
ly peflible (he could again be got off, as by rolling,
the rock# had perforated her bottom ; and the fca
flows and ebbs in and out of her every tide : fhc was,
by all accounts given of her, the firft Ihip in the
French navy, and is sow by neglect supposed to be
rendered unlit for any futther service.

And whereas in the course of his government he
hath graciously been pleased to Thew lingular kisid
nefs to the people and nation, of which this Kate is
a conftitueat member, by protediing our ancestors,
in their firft cftablilhmerils in this then savage wil
derness—.by defending them againd their enemies
—by blessing them with an uncommon degree of
peace, liberty and fafety, and with the civilizing
light and influence of his holy gospel—by leading
us [as it were by the handj through the various
dangers and difficulties of the late revolution, and
crowning it with fut.-efs'; by giving us wisdom
and opportunity to establish governments and inlli
tutions aafpicious to order, security and rational
liberty ; by preserving us from being involved in
■the wars and other grievous calamities which at this
moment afflict and didrefs many nations ; by ref
toiing peace between us and the hoflile Indians
who insetted our borders ; by condantly favouring
us with fruitful seasons j and in genera], by giving 1
ui a greater portion of public -welfare and profpe
ritjr, than to any other people.
Ar.d whereas it hath pleased him, by permitting
sickness to prevail and be fatal to the lives of many
.in our principal city, and in sundry places in this
Jand other dates, and ,by the extensive alarms and
1 ambarr aliments which attended it, to remind us that
prosperity and adversity are in his hand ; and that
[iu all our pursuits we are to remember, that he is
the cause and giver of all the good that was, that
is, or that will be. And "whereas our Almighty
lorereign, in addition to his othir mercies, hath <
Utely ftiyed the h*ad of tkc dedroying angel, and
by thus manifeftinjj and multiplying his beneSti to
us as a people, calls upon us as a people to matii
felt our gratitude to him : ,
Wherefore, and particularly on this occasion, it
appears to me, to be the public duty of the people
of this ft a: i'collectively coafidered, to render unto 2
him their sincere and humble thaiiks for all these '
his great and unmerited mercies and blessings. And '
also to offer up to him their fervent petitions to 1
continue to us his prote&ion aud faror. To pre
serve to us the undisturbed enjoyment of our civil
and religious rights and privileges, and the valua
ble life and ufefulnefs of the President of the Uni
ted States. To enable all our rulers, councils, and
people to do the duties incumbent on-them respec
tively, with wisdom and fidelity—to promote the
: extension of true teligion, virtue, and ; j
. to give us all grace to cultivate national union, con
-1 cord, and goodwill; and generally to bless our na
: lion ; and all other nations, in the manner and mea- |,
. sure moll conducive to our and their bed intertftr
F and real welfare.

and ought to depend on national gratitude and

OF all projedts for raising money, that recently
adopted by Mr. Randolph appears to be the moil
ingenious. In the firft place, lie makes certain

He next religns his office, in a critical stage of the

visit the ex minister of France : ,011 his return he
publifhcs several extraflsof letters written by him
■felf, all tending to induce honed people to fufjeft
S f that he has been gutlry of some deviltry. A " c-w
---folatory transformation" of the truth is then diftii
buted privately through the country, of which
, r vague reports are circulated- After the public eu'-
s riolity has been excited to the highed pitch to
know the meaning of tKefe strange movements, a

!is promi.vd to the public : But. mark ! th: copv

folly to lizard any other prediction upon the iffje

1 feil his character at its full value. The profit* of
i this operation, however, have very probably been
overrated, as the oj-pofei s -of " immoral taxation"
