V of the late treaty proposed to be made with Great I Britain. Yet, notwithflanding those difcontentg, 1 we express our confidence ill the executive depart- J ment of the general government, in whom the pow- ( cr of making treaties is constitutionally veiled. All ] attempts, therefore, to inflame or agitate the minds of the people against the officers of government, ] and particularly our 'beloved President, merit our - highest disapprobation. We have hitherto lived happy under the laws of ' the United States of America. We have sworn ( ta support the eonftitution thereof, and we pro nounce the men whom we have intrnfted with the administration of the laws, to be under our protec tion and guardianlhip. We likewise announct our utmofl abhorrence ■' and detestation against the writer of a threatening anonymous letter, dated March 13th, 1795, and ( directed to the honorable judge Campbell-—We , exhort and direst the citizens of this Territory not < to be guilty of any offence of the like nature. We consider all attempts of redress for any injuries, elpecially supposed injuries, Thort of legal or con stitutional measures, is beneath the character ihat ought to dignify a citizen of the United States. These expressions of tfur minds, and the charge delivered by Judge Campbell, we desire may be in serted in the Knoxville Gazette. (Signed) THOMAS HENDERSON, Foreman. Reply from thr Grand Jury for the dijlrict of Ha milton, at Oflober term, 1795, '» the charge deli vered to them by the Hon. 'Judge Campbell. WITH pleasure have we attended to the charge delivered by you, at the commencement of the pre sent session. The true principle of government ought to be . r well understood by every citizen, ai d deeply im prcfTed #tp every mind. Tsat all freemen in a re publican government, have a rigliL to remonftraie in a conilitutional manner, againit grievances. We highly reprobate all riots, burning cf effi gies* or any other unlawful step taken to throw the minds of the people into :t lernient. We like wife ( disapprove of inve&ives being thrown out against offi' trs of government in high Ration, especially \ the illustrious Washington, We also feel the high- j &ft sensations of sjr-utitude for those citizens, who in a j atriotic and conilitutional manner opposed those parts of the late treaty Britain, which to us appear inimical to the rights and li berties of the free and independent Hates of Ame rica. We dcclare, that though we have found Dur felvei happy und r the patronage of Congids, in our temporary government, nevertbtlcfs, v.e prefer a full voice in the federal councils of the United States. likewise pronounce the anonymous letter J directed thfclhonorabjf Judge Campbell, and through him to thTdTh^rJoTlgts, £0 b® ii.tli_g.uant to our laws, the author to be an enemy to our go vern menr; afid we exhort all good citizens to feel themselves freemen, and know it to be their duty, not only to discountenance but endeavour to sup press all fucb.enornskies. y It is the request of the jury that this reply be in serted in the Knoxville Gazette. Unanimously agreed t0,,, SAMUEL NEWELL, Foteman. RICHMOND, November 2 1. Leoisiature of Virginia. A motion was made that the house do come to the following refolntion : Rcfohrrd, That the motives which influenced the President of the United States (o ratify the treity lately negotiated with Great Britain meet the en tire approbation of this house and that the Presi dent of the United States for his great vt-if . dom and integrity merits and pofiefies the unlimit ed confidence of his country. And said resolution being again read, and a moti on made to amend the fame by linking out from the word resolved to the end and infecting, in lieu thereof the following words. That he Hor.fe do entertain the highefl sense of the integrityard patriotism of the President of the United States and that while they approve the vote of the Senators of this state inthe Congress of the United States relative to the treaty with Great Britain they in no wife mean to censure the motives which influedeed him ia liis-condnfl thereupon. It passed in the affirmative. Philadelphia, MONDAY EVENING, NUVEiVHHZR 30, 1795, The liegiflature of this Commonwealth will convene to-morrow in the State-Houfe. OCCURRENCE. One day lafl week an honest Fellow-Citizen, enquir ing for work, was dire<fled to the Office of the Hol low-Ware Company—He acccrt-dingiy applied to the Chief Forger for the office of Bellows-Elov. er. Whether any articles had recently been discovered to be cracked thro' carelelTnefs of the workmen, is not yet known ; It is however certain, that the Chief Forger was in a moll violent rage, and, urged there by, kicked his Fellow-Citizen down flairs—Equality and Democracy to the contrary uotwitbftanding.

The decrees for teele&ing two thirds of the Con vention, were yeflerday proclaimed in the fteeets of Paris, as being adapted by the majority of the people. The utmost pomp and ceremony attend ed the event : but many of the Primary Affcm- « blies, exprefled their indignation on the occasion, and fume of them considered the proclamation as 1 a calumny upon the people, as contrary to truth, 1 and, consequently, as not binding on any one. j In fadt, it is a moll incredible lnflauce of pre- I uimption, to impose the will of 160,000 (t!u? num ber of voters who have accepted the decrees) per- i sons, as a law of 25,000,000 of men. The Parti- f fans of the Convention, thus, donot exceed 160,000, < and amongthefe mufl be reckoned the terroritls who v have been lately fst at liberty. c GONESSE, (10 miles from Paris.) September 22. .1 "In several communes of the department of the Seine and Oife, a placard has beefl jtill paded up, r fliewing to what danger liberty has been xpofed for some days pail. It is pofiriifely fcated, '• certain viftJiclive, and ambitious men, had pr* . fed to transfer the lent of the Co vention, to fur.n olt.er place ;to declare Paris in a state 'tof rebellion and to prevent it from receiving ; arid that the molt faithful leprefcKt'atives of the people, such at Boiffy d'Atiglas, Henrie Lanviere, Eer mnnd, Lanjuinais, Lefage, Raba'uif, Puinmier, I'elet, Duflault, &e. were to* be profeiibed, and the hideous Empire of Terror reeftal lifted. " Phis is a fuißeient explanation of the meafurcs pursued in our neighbourhood ; . this is the reafi Lyons Iras been wi.h troops, and Nantes , and Rouen /' livered Up to the Terrorifls ; that picquets of cavalry have been flattened for fotne days on the roads leading to Pflrij, that the Poll waiter# reifeivfrd orderaiioc to.let any body have liorfes ; that so many troops have beencollected in: the cnviiVns of Paris, and that the terrbnils and Brigands have been set at liberty."

In the fitting of the 4th Vendemaiie (Sept. 26) Larevelliers-Lepaux, in tire name of the Commit tee of Public Welfare, informed tbe Convention, that the agints of the Sections had pulled down all the proclamations which had been pasted up by • order of the' Convention during the night. It was therefore decreed, that the Adminitlratois of the department of the Seine, should immediately pub lift, in Paris, the proclamation and the declaration adopted by the Convention, on the preceding night. Talien proposed the eflabliftraent of an extraor dinary commilfion of sixteen members of the Con vention, to superintend the police This proportion gave rife to a long debate, and was at length referred to the Committees. The Prefiderit of the session of the Temple, hav ing put in requintion the commander of the armed force of that diftriifl, the Convention annulled the order lie had iflued, and decreed, that all persons who fnould call out the armed force without an order from the Representatives of the People, fhoilld be deemed traitors to their country, and profeeutcd as such.
