    oa. By tliia operation the army commanded by
General Count d* Erbach, might have been cut off E
from the reft of the troops which defendeu the
Rhine above Dtiffeldorf: but it would appear that,
being seconded by ttte Prince of Wurremberg, he
took advantage of the moment when the French g
were not yet in force at Duffeldo'-f, to aecomphlh fr
his retreat towards the Wipper. There is even a li
report that he defeated them. p

NEW-YORK, November 25. f t
On Thursday lad was concluded the arguments t(
of counsel in the libel of Don Dieg® de Pintardo, v%
againll the French piivateer La Vengeance, Capt. p
John Berard claimant ; and also in the two infor- f<
Illations which had been filed ex ojjicio by the attor- o
ney of this didrift againlt the fame schooner tl
Tlie remarks of the counsel upon the evidenec and b
law, co 11 fumed more than a week. e'
The following we understand, is a summary of the tr
allegations of the parties and of the qtiellions of fa
law arising out of them. I
The libellant alledges, that a Spanish fliip, the ci
Princefa of Afturias, was made a prize of upon
the high seas by a French privateer La Vengeance,
but that the said privateer was furnifhed, armed
and fitted out in some port of the United States,
and therefore pra'ys the dillrift court to rellore the
prize to its former owners. (
The Captain of the privateer admits the capture U
on the high seas, but denies any armament within
the United States, and also protelis againlt the ju- 31
rifdiftioft of the Court. ' P
The firft information also stipulates, that the ,
privateer had been seized as forfeited to the United "
States, becatife " (he was fitted out and armed "
within some port of the United States, within- * v
tent that she fiiould be employed in the service of a
foreign slate, to cruize upon the fubjefts of the '
kinjf i>f Spain, they and yd .it peace with the
United States, and because four swivels and ten 01
guns had been procured within the United States,' ?
for the equipment of the privateer, with the intent
aforefaid, &c. -
The second information dates, that the privateer
had been seized as forfeited tp the United States, \ c
because (he had, during a certain prohibitory u
aft, exported from the United States, certain c .'
cannon, mulkets, and gunpowder, to Port-de-
Paix. ' bl
To this firft fpfornaation Captain Bsrard filed a H<
claim, and to the second a claim was iattrpofed by fc>(
the French conftil residing at this port, denying the tc
several charges aforefaid. —
Many witneffcs were examined, and v great
'nipnberof affidavits werje read upon the hi 5n ' n g )
which had been taken at. Pact-de-Paix and
Belide thequeftion3 of fait which naturally C J C
curred, we uuderltand several law-points were ms e I ]
for the court's consideration, particularly the fc. bi
lowing : ex
1. Whether the armament dated in the I:be!,-It
if proved, makes a forfeiture of the prize, and or
obliges a neutral nation to rellore it to the original jin
owners. • _ ■ ■■ —- >
2. If such restitution be the doty of a neutral t|
nation, whether the lieceflary iiiterpolition does not >'
appertain cciichif.u'ly to the government 01* execu- i*
tive of the country. 1
3. Whether the privateer be liable to forfeiture a
in the hands of a bona Jide purchaser. (j
4. Whether the value of the articles 2
ought not, according in the aft, to amoant to fo, r
hundred and fifty dollars, to occasion a forfc.
The Counsel for the libellant were, Mr. lia
milton, M<". Han ifon, and Mr. 'I roup.
The Counsel for the claimant we're, Mr. de
Ponceau, Mr. B. Livingfton, and Mr. E. Li- j
vinglton. _ I
The pleadings were very lengthy, and it is a- j
greed, that all the gentlemen acquitted themfclves
well ; but as the matter is (till Jub judict, we deem
it imp r oper eithei to llate the arguments of the
refpeftive counsel, or to hazard any opinion ab'iut
the event, as much property and some national
questions are irrvolved in the controversy. We
. are confident that the learned judge, in whose >
hands the causes aie, will do juilice to ail parties.

Mr. Printer,
The following extract from the Gentleman's
Magazine for Auguit 1795, appears to be highly
worthy of republication ; by giving it a place in
your paper, you will do an agreeable thinjj to your
fellow citizens of tlie country and will oblige
A Farmer.
The following r»»de of curing butter is praftifed
by iome in the panfii of Udny and that neighbour
hood which gives to their butter a great superiority
above that of others :
41 Take two parts of the befl common fait, one
partfugar and one part fait petre, beat them up to
gether and blend them completely. Take one
ounce of this composition for every lixteen ounces
of butter work it well into thq mais and close it for
use." .
I know no limple improvement in economick®
greater than this is when compared with the usual
mode ®fcuring butter by means of conimon fait a
lone. I have seen the experiment fairly made of
one part of the butter made at one time t. ius cured,
arid the other with fait alone. Ihe difference was
inconceivable. I should suppose that in any open
market the one wsuld fell for 30 per cent moie than
' the other. The butter cured with the mixture ap
peared of a »ich marrowy confidence and fine co-
Ibui and never acquires a brittle hardness nor tastes
of fait ; the other is comparatively hard aRd brittle
approaching more nearly the appearance of talj^w^
and is sauch falter to the taste. I have eaten of
butter cured with the* composition that had been
kept three years and was as sweet as at firPt. But
it deserves to be noted that butter' thus cured re
quires to stand from three weeks to a month be
fore it be began to he used. be sooner opened thefalts are not fufficiently
blended with it ; and sometimes the coolness of
the nitre will then be perceived which totally difap
peais afterwards.
HUDSON, Nov. i 9.
1 Extract of letter from an officer in theweftern army,
: to lis ftiend in this city, dated Fort Fidius,
, Hancock coußty, (late of Georgia, 30th Sept.
: "I am forty to inform you, that a few days 3-
1 go, five Indians came into this neighbourhood as
1 friends, and after getting somewhat intoxicated with
1 liquor, they broke open a chell, for the pur
pose ©f getting more liquor (as is usual for them in
. such a situation) without however intending any
other harm. They then fat down near the houfc
from whence they took the liquor, and got quite in
s toxicateo ; while in this situation a militia Capt.
, with some men came upon them and made them
. prisoners, and after having conversed with them
. some time, tied them, and cut their throats one by
- one with a knife, scalped them and threw them into
- the river. Government has not as yet interfered,
1 bat this aft of cruelty and inhumanity, difgraceful
even to the very savages, calls tor the fevered and
; mod exemplary punifhmfnt ; the Indians will take !
f fatisfaftion, and as their laws require two for one, !
I soon expect to hear of the murder of some inna- :
1 cent families."

e Coßtddnptible sycophants ! the clergy of America .
cannot be played upon in this way ; they are inde- ■
( P ei 'dent, and will feel it to be their duty to pray
' t for the conftitutecj authorities. Our clergy are 1
really independent. In general, they are neither "
r beggars nor rich men. Their farms arc far inferior
to their parilhianers; but they are known in the
r different towns where they reside, to be men of dif-
ceinment and Republicans-— great were their extr
tions in the American revolution ; and no one can
believe that they are « Old Tories and Jriflocrats"

be—" Peace to ouh. Israel," and puniihment
