The real feeurities given for the payment of the Prize
are held bvhe President and two Dire&ors of the

of the Lottery.
The twenty four gentlemen who by appointment of
the late CommifTioncrs assisted ;n the managemen: of the
Hotel Lottery are requested to undertake thio arduous tafjc
a second time on behalf of the public ; a fufficient num
ber of thefc having kindly accepted, it is hoped that th-t
friends to a National University and the other .federal ob
jeds may continue to favor the design. The jTynopfis of
one of the Colleges, to form a branch of the National
Institution, is already in the press, and will be speedily
published, together with its cortftitution.
A comjUat Plan of the whole of this Important

whenever :he fame may have gone through such revisions
as may be nccefTary to establish the perfe<sfc confidence and
general approbation, so essential to its present rife and fu

By accounts received from the different parts of the
Continent as well as from Europe, where the ti«kots
have been sent for sale, the public a»e allured that the
drawing will speedily commence, and that the carc and
caution unavoidably necessary to insure a fafe disposal of
the ticket*, has rendered the in or: suspension indifpcnfable.

THE objed of the prepofed work, is, to present to
public view a connected series oi the chief events of a
period of .American hiflory, that does not yield, in im
portance, to any period of equal length, in the peaceful
annals of any country in the world.
Defiling to excite no expectations but such as he shall
endeavour to fa i*fy, the writer is thus early in announ
cing, that the body aad confidence-of a regular hilfcory,
is not to be looked for in this work : neither his talents
nor his avocations allow him to hope for this. Hi 3 hum
bler talk shall be to sketch out the most prominent fea
tures. It shall be his study to colled and arrange the
most interefling materials—to smooth the rugged path—
for abler hands, who, by such mean?, will find their la
bours abridged, and their progress accelerated.
His chief view will be, to give the Hiilory or the Uni
ted States as a confederated Republic. Nevertheless, no
tice will be taken of the most remarkably circumstances in
the hiflory of the individual States, as far as they can be
colleded. This information shall be classed under sepa
rate appendixes.
The Author solicits the affiftnee of such Gentlemen
as may be polTefl'ed of documents calculated to promote
the execution of his plan. They shall fee received with
due gratitude —carefully preserved—and fafely returned.

they lhall be ready to make such aiTurauces on terms to
be fixed by their President and Committee, agreeably to
circum/tances. Those who arc anxious to efFedl aJjuran -
ces, will find their advantage in fending the molt particu
lar statement of their buildings, and the relative circura
ftancss. Perfonsnot having a correspondent in this city,
or who prefer doing this business with the Oflics dire&ly,
by means of Letters,poflpaid mud not fail to enclose a
builder's d.l'cription of the dimensions, condition, materi
als and ft tu at ion of the building proposed to be insured,
especially with refpeii. to its contiguity to other buildings,
and whether those building* be of wood, or brick, or
stone. It must l»e particularly fta*.ed, whether the build
ing itfe?F, or those in its neighbourhood, be occupied as
dwellings, or used as magazines or manufactories, and
for what particular purpose; and to obviate all obje&ion,
it is expected that this builder's statement, and the repre
sentation annexed, {hall be severally signed by the parties,
and accompanied by a magistrate's certificate, that they
are persons of good repute. For tho government ®f the
Public, they deem it expedient to notice, that although
the premium must be fixed according to the dygree of ha
zard in the estimation of the President and Comrtiittee
of the week, yet it will probably not be more than
from about half to one per cent, annually, except where
a house or store is not only itfelf built of wood, but situ
s .2d next other buildings of the fame material. On such
rilks not more than four thousand dollars will be written
On one policy. Houses and stores built of brick or stone,
and situated in open street* in any of the principal towns
or cities where fire engines and fire companies are eftab
lilhed, and not containing articles particulalry combufli
ble, will be confidcred rilks entitled^to alTurance at the
lowest of these rates. On single hazard®, even of the
best kind, where from remoteness those advantages cannot
be enpyed, the Company will not aflure more than fix
thoufund dollars. No policy will be signed 'till the pre
mium be paid.
Any pcrfon insuring for fevcn years, will be charged
only the amount of fix annual premium®; and for three

THE present publication (hall, by additions to the small
Treadle publifticd in Britain in 1787, be augmented
to the size of two volumes royal o6ia-jo t confuting ©I at ieaft
600 pages each, 011 a small pica type.
It had been suggested to the compiler, by many persons
converl'ant in the law and pra&ice of Infurar»ce, that a
complete compilation of the authorities 011 this fubjctl
would be of great utility ; to which persons particularly
interested in this one branch of law might have recourf J ,
instead of being under the neccllity of purchafmg a*id
turning over a variety of voluminous p blicaiions To
answer this end o; conveniency, it is proposed to destine the
firlt volume of the present work to the reception of a very
full collection of auiuorlties; not in a sLate of abridgment, as
was the cafe in the former edition; and which couid never
supersede recouife to the originals; but to be inferted'y<?>-
batim from the moil approved original compilations, and
arranged in the mode whicL appears eafieA for coniuka-
d lot —wsim
tion. »
This Firii Volume, or Di<ffconary of Authorities, will
lit The ancient Marine Ordinances of the foreign states
of Europe: which form the common Liiu of Infurafice. At
present it is uniortunate that a collection of these is scarce
ly to be found any where clfe than in that fcaice and dear
book, MagcnV EfTay, in tw« volumes, 4CO
2u. The Statute Law of Great-Britain in regard to In
surances. TJie American legislatures have hithcrto*doue
nothing upon this fubje£t.
3d. A very full colle&ion of the reports of adjudged
cafe* in t *e courts of England and Scotland, and «f those
of the States of America so far as they can be obtained.—
This will form by far the greatest as well as the nioft im
portant part of the firft vo uaie. By means of his friends
at the Engiifh bar» the compiler hopes to bring forward
a number of reports of adjudged cfes never before pub
liflied, so a$ to make the series on this fubje«sl more com
plete than any now extant.
The second volume will consist of an Institute, or Ele
mentary Treatise, on a plan foinething iimilar to that of
the former edition ; but with a great addition of new mat
ter; so as to extend this part of the work to about double
the former size. A more prattical arrangement will aif#
be studied.
The whole will be attended with very full Indexes of
the different parts.
Price to fubferibers fix dollars and one half for the two
volumes in boards.
The work will be put to the press whenever a fufficient
nnmber of subscriptions have been obtained to indemnify
the pubiiiher for the a&ualexpence of publication.
