cifL and extirpate thefe monttirs ia human fhape, from the face of the earth. The difheiTcs of the f arriving inhabitants of that late flourifhing fettlement, are by their prefentcircumflah - ces, rendered fuch ftrikiog objecls of charity, that withholding relief from them, by thole who are able to afford it, argues a criminal obduracy, which de - ferves, and may be punifhed by diftreffes of a fimilar kiod. We are told that of the 1000 men in the Continental army, who went from that fettlement, their cumber is by flcknefs and the cruel ufage of the prifoners by the enemy, reduced to 400, who have now to lament the lofs cf their property, wives, children, and all that was dear to them in life ! The hclplefs fugitives from the place, efcaped with little more than their lives, they could bring nothing with them hardly clothes to cover them, and nothing to eat, many were two or three days without fuftenance, and feveral pregnant women were delivered alone in the woods. This it is hoped will be the concluding fcene of the tragedy acted acted by the Britifli tyrant and his murderous diabolical emiiTaries,; in a part of his late kingdom, which he has juflly forfeited, and which is now forever departed from him.
