BOSTON, November 17.

Extract of a letter from a gentleman in Europe __ his correspondent in this town, dated London 1*th October, 1794.

"Through I often pay my respects to Mr. Jay, when all present are in the American interest, yet we, none of us, ever could get from him any thing respecting the stage or forwardness of his business, and from the necessity alone of the British cabinet's granting all and even more than he at one time would have exacted, we have reason to suppose he will bye and bye, return back, and be heartily welcomed by his fellow citizens. It is rumoured and not without some truth, that the British cabinet never had a harder or tougher hand to deal with than they find in citizen Jay; this, with the critical situation of Great-Britain just now, will insure him success, and it has been mentioned in circles where I have been, who are not in the American interest, that he, Mr. Jay, is embracing the present opportunity, and will obtain the privilege of the carrying trade to the West-Indies, so far as that the United States shall have access to all the islands with free liberty to carry and bring any thing to and from them they please: - For instance, a vessel not exceeding 120 tons burthen, may go from Boston, with a cargo of any thing, to the island of Jamaica; there sell and purchase a cargo of sugar, and carry it back to Boston, land it, and then, if you please, reship it in any size vessel, and carry it to any European market, except Great Britain and Ireland. This point gained, as the United States can carry, in times of peace, for about one half what Great-Britain can, she will go near to make a monopoly of the whole carrying business. Although Mr. Jay, as before observed, is close in the extreme, yet from this leaking out of the other party, I hardly doubt its truth and Great-Britain must be at peace with the United States, she will just now grant almost any thing Mr. Jay may demand, and I do not think he will be wanting or sparing in his exertions.

"To attempt to give you an account of the political world at this time, would be endless and needless as you will doubtless have things fully detailed in your own papers; and give me leave to observe, generally, that France is every where successful, and such extraordinary genius and evergy does she possess, that if the executive of that country should declare they would build a bridge from Calais to Dover, I should think it accomplished. Going on for three months more as they have for the three past, they will have all the cannon in Europe, and half the merchant vessels of Great-Britain. Holland must either make a separate peace or be conquered is all the present month; and in either case, France will have the Dutch navy in _________, and then, by next spring she will be both disposed and able to break the back of the British navy; of such importance does France conceive this object to be, that she will not make peace till it is accomplished."

PHILADELPHIA, December 27.

Extract of a letter from London, dated October 2.

"The policy that has actuated the administration of this country towards yours is but too true, but I have reason to believe, (although much secrecy is observed) that since the arrival of Mr. Jay they have been convinced of their error, and seem well disposed to continue a friendly intercourse, which I pray God may long continue, and that we may soon see an end to this cruel war. So far as the West-India body of planters and merchants have any weight with administration, it has been universally used in every interview, and application to __em in favour of extending the commerce of the West-Indies with the American states, and we have solicited in the strongest terms, to admit North American vessels of a certain burthen to carry the produce of the American states direct to our islands, and to receive the produce of our islands in return; this I am sure is very much to be wished for, on the _core of humanity, as well as policy, and I cannot see how it can __tently interfere with our navigation ___, so much dreaded by our cabinet ministers, but I am happy to observe that of late, most of these ministers are satisfied with the great benefit that would result from such an int__ourse. One lord only excepted, to whose opinion hitherto, much difference has been paid in matters of commercial regulation."

Lines written on the decease of Major NICHOLAS WATKINS, December 14, 1794.

SWEET spring advance, and deck with flowrets gay,
The tomb where Watkin's remains are laid,
Ye muses there your cons__nt vigils pay,
And guard from ills the consecrated shade.

Ye tree protect your worthy patrons grave,
He once from ruin sav'd your leafy charms,
Then to his honour bid your green tops wave,
And fold his urn in your embracing arms.

Around the sod may __forever bloom,
And lilies pour their aromatic tide.
May a kind friend the mournful ____ assume,
And some few tears be offer'd at his side.

Lost to his country and his mournful friends,
His last address was with a feeble pen,
He now assumes a more exalted strain,
And quits, for angels, the pursuits of men.

Adieu! My friend, long may thy mem'ry live,
Thy country grateful - long thy merits own,
This artless verse is all a friend can give,
'Tis for that country __ erect the stone.


WHEN we review the calamities which afflict so many other nations, the present condition of the United States affords much ma_er of consolation and satisfaction. Our exemption hitherto from foreign war; an increasing prospect of the continuance of that exemption; the great degree of internal tranquility by the suppression of an insurrection which so wantonly threatened it; the hap_y course of our public affairs in general; the unexamp_ed prosperity of all classes of our citizens - are circumstances which perculiarly mark our situation with indi_ations of the Divine Beneficence towards us. In such a state of things it is, in an especial manner, our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God, and to implore him to continue and confirm the blessings we experience.

Deeply penetrated with this sentiment, I, George Washington, president of the United States, do recommend to all religious societies and denominations, and to all persons whomsoever within the United States, to set apart and observe Thursday the nineteenth day of February next, as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer; and on that day to meet together and render their sincere and hearty thanks to the Great Ruler of nations, for the manifold and signal-mercies, which distinguish our lot as a nation; particularly for the possession of constitutions of government which unite, and by their union establish liberty with order for the preservation of our peace foreign and domestic; for the reasonable control which has been given to a spirit of disorder, in the suppression of the late insurrection; and generally for the prosperous course of our affairs, public and private, and at the same time humbly and fervently to beseech the kind author of these blessings graciously to prolong them to us - to imprint on our hearts a deep and solemn sense of our obligations to him for them - to teach us rightly to estimate their immense value - to preserve us from the arrogance of prosperity, and from hazarding the advantages we enjoy by delusive pursuits - to dispose us to merit the continuance of his favours, by not abusing them, by our gratitutde for them, and by a correspondent conduct as citizen's and as men - to render this country more and more a safe and propitious asylum for the unfortunate of other countries - to extend among us true and useful knowledge - to diffuse and establish habits of sobriety, order, morality and piety; and finally to impart all, the blessings we possess, or ask for ourselves, to the whole family of mankind.


In testimony whereof, I have caused the seal of the United States of America to be affixed to these presents, and signed the same with my hand. Done at the city of Philadelphia, the first day of January, one thousand seven hundred and ninety-five, and of the independence of the United States the nineteenth.
