LQNDON, 13d March, 1771. Dma* SJK, *' We are likely to have some serious ■" matters, of the political kind, ere long. " Wilkes has brought the Commons into a «' damnable dilemma, by attacking his two «• old friends, the K—g, und Lord Hali«' fax. I hope there remains fomefpiritof " Englishmen among us, which will soon • 4 blalt the men who are driving to ruin this " great kingdom. Thatj> u and 1 may live " ta share the spoils of those rascals, and u be rewarded with what ive reii! y meri', " is my ardent wish, when I bid you a:lieu 1 ♦' Your't most refpe£lfully, Stefmes Sater." Par arnpuni " fiarc F.xtraS of a letter Jr'eYn a political character resident abroad, to ktsfttend at Philadelphia. " The French proverb fays that there are honed men, even in hell ; where I (liould indeed as loon think of looking for them, as anions; that class of mortals called Jacobins. I will not fay there is 110 such thing as an honed Jacobin, but I mud own it has never been my lot to meet with one, and have in dances ot the contrary multiplying upon me every day, Christian charity bids u?. hope all things, but not to believe all things, and I lh >uld think my property just as fafe in the hands of a Jacobin, as in those of a convitted thief. I know not whether you will think these fentiivrnts illiberal, but these are times, and this is a fubjeft that admit not of liberality. The utmod candor I can fliew to a Jacobin is not to ti ud him ; for then I believe of him that lie will not betray my truth" Dtiti. Cu. Extract from Essays on Political Societynow printing by Mr. William Young. " The American Congiefs, under their rxilting conflitution, affords a eonfpicuotis illuflration of general principles of moral policy. None of the ancient or modern leagues, none of the ancient or modern governments, in the Old World, exhibits so perfeft a national model for municipal legislation upon the eledtive fyflein. French vanity, indeed, has eulogized their policy as the fublimefl monument of human reason. But the de- of the firll edition of government which they call a couftitution, were proved by its being overthrown alnioft as soon as it commenced operations : It became obsolete in its infancy. The next projett, to which was given the name of constitution, was conceived under the ascendant of Rob.fpierre. This thing 1 , even its parents, had not the confidence to exhibit to the French, for their opinion. The third French edition of government, called the constitution of year three, appeared to have more firinnefs of texture, and to b: more capable of duration. Its exterior form, indeed, has been continued, while the brain and the heart, as far as i; had any, were anatomized by order of such as direttcd the armed force. Can the French Council of Ancients claim the honor of competing with khe American Seriate ? Is it equally formed far dignity, for Vifdom and (lability ? Shall the French Council of Five Hundred pretend to rival the American House of Representatives as a popular chamber of legislation ? The triennial elettion of the members of that Council, the interposal of an elefloral aitembly between them and the people, the annual rotation of one third of the members, the forced elettion of two thirds, w*re these the bell expedients which theboafted French fk ; ll could devise for fecurihg popular liberty ? The French legislature, if their two Council merit the name since the Fruftidorian fuhjugation, is a duplicated revolutiensry ariftoiracy ; mutilated by pentarchal usurpation ; nominally regulated by forms, which, at the bidding of the pentarchs, vanilh before a decree of urgencyj Whether the framers of the American conllitution controlled by an happy necessity of political Atuation ; whether their profound acquaintance with the most corie£l theories of government determined the frame of the system ; or whether a manly force rf Blind, combined with fcientific skill, aided by much perlbnal experience, and influenced by a refpeftful attention to preconceived opinions, led tq a f\ stem so origi. nal in its general ftrurture, so intervolved in its parts, so compadl-d by the aflociation of the whole ; whether and how far any or all of these catifes iperated to produce the American constitution, one thing is certain 1 lie citizei g of the New World have abundant cause to felicitate themselves «n their political tlefliny. The American nation has now a municipal Icgiflature conllictited to «« provide for the common d-fence " and general welfare." Just as our paper was going to press we received the returns from Chester Cuunty, by which it_appears that the Federa'ifts hive carried the eleftion by 159 votes—except the Senator, who the Demociati tarried owing to the counties of Bucks and Montgomery. )C7* THE Members of the Society of the Sons of St. GEORGE, eftablifhcd at Philadelphia, for the advice and assistance of Engliflimen in diftrcfe, are requefled to attend a quarterly meeting of the said Society, at the City Tavern, on Tliurfday the FOR SALE, 23d day of Oftobtr, at fix o'clock in the Long Primer, evening. * Snftalt Pica on Pica Body, V Several Members are to be balloted ' E"?'™'' Chaft., CompoGng Stick., atid.agrea(L„ nvrwn'v r\A«ro n variety of articles tiecelftry to carry on the Prinfor' .

A STRIKING LJISN S3. Pennsylvania Ele&ions. For the GazfUc oj ifje United. States ORIGINAL POETI*. {. No. vijtr. Impromptu, en hearing a young lady cenfurrd far keeping an officer's picture in her parlour. A graceful person, with an easy air, And fops have these, may sometimes please the fair, But manly sense, a foul for friendfliip form'd, A heart at once by love and glory warm'd, With modest worth,and truepolitenefsjoin'd To every virtue of a soldier's mind, These are the charms, that steal upon the bread. And with these charms was Damon greatly Weft, Eftecm for honor plac'd his image there, And often wakes refleftion's tender tear. Then, Son of Malice, e'tr you dare to raise, The breath of censure, (tho' thycenfure's praise,) From Damon's virtues, boundless was the (tore, Learn but his candour, and you'll blame no more. A SONG.

It will be well if you and I have hitherto been mistaken ; the event I hope will be favorable ; but no wife has changed my opinion—nay, so clearly do I conceive the principles of our Democrats t» be wrong, that were it left to my determination. 1 would freely make choice of beii.g governed by Buonaparte himfelf, rather thah submit to the partiality and tyranny of our Democrats, manifefted in the late proceedings of I fuppofc it would not be ledition only, but also little treason, to find fault with the majority of our legislature—who, it is said, are the people.—Our ticket law, however, for appointing Eledors to choose a -Prefiydent, and a Vice-President, will be a lading monument of the loft liberties of the di ft re fled and deluded people ; and an eternal Sigma on the boasted justice of true republican government.
