   Morning Chronicle And London Advertiser (Newspaper) - January 16, 1775, London, Middlesex                                For the Morning Chronicle. E P I G RAM On reading a letter in this day's Morning Chronicle, Jigned Anti-Puff. THY fignature of Anti-P�^* How J aft'?-G--d knows-thourt fiat enough. Jan. H, 1779.___ To the Prin t er of the MorningChronicle. SIR, AS hit now the faflrion for every one to give their opinion of theatrical matters, I make bold to offer that of an; individual, restive to one of the greatefi: indignities that ever difgraced a Theatre Royal. I mean the fcandalous. admiflion of that Italian, Sighor 'Roffignol on a Britifli ftage. It is a certain , proof th*gentleman and fcholar has quitted the management. I Ihould not be furprized to hear SaviHe-Carey* with his dogs and cats; Buckhorfe, with' his- tunes on bis chin, and Jemmy Mofs, "with his whiffling aviary, bf light' forth with the firft performers of oujr drama, �indeed;; many -believe, that this Sig. Roffignol i� no other than Jemmy Mofs, under ah Iftilian title. How can Barry fubmit to Aich an infult as being ftuck up in the - fame 'bill, with fuch a Birtholornew-fair entertainment? Is it not Ihocking to hear the fuccefs of fuch performers as Mr. and Mrs.  Barry, and Mrs. Hartley-, attributed to Roffignol ? For the cjaeftionjii-rrot, will you go tp �the Biftrefied Mother'; but, will you go hear the YVhrftling Man ?-lf the capital performers hsve fenfe^ fpirjti'or proper pride, they will. *ake this hint., Jt is /aid, that in the ab-feneerof Mr. Garriclc, Mr. Lacey once engaged a fet of Italian Tumblers, but on Mt._ Garrick's knowledge of the matter, he told \Mr; Lacfy, if the Italians tumbled on. his ftage, he would for ever give over tumbling; there himfelf; they were confequently dif-charged.   Verbum fafienti. A Lover of ibt Drama under proper Decorum. For the. Morning Chronicle. Tp  Mr.   BENS LEY. S I R, TOTALLY unacquired with you, except in your theatrical capacity, I ihaU be acquitted of motives of parialiry, or predilection, in faying you are moll juffly entitk-d to applaufe for your truly excellent.performance of the part of Pyrrhus in the Bilireffsd Mother. An ilHheril; or, indeed, a too ftricl criticifm on perf >ns, who, in their profeffion, ftudioufly endeavour to contribute to the a-mufement of the public, I h=ive ever deemed a moll malevolent, unjuftifiable proceeding. In this light, with truth, may be coniidered the generality of the cynical animadverfions with which the daily papers are replete. In this 'tis apparent* ill. nature and injudicious cenfure fuptrfede the dictates of candour and jullice, cenfure is predominant, and commendation but rarely bellowed, though frequently merited. As, one exception to a rule too general, allow me to return my real thanks for the reception of that pleafure which your performance above .alluded to rendered me. Your conception of the charsdler was admi-rably.juft-I had almoll feid it was not ptr-fanifcation, but Pyrrhus redivivus. A competent knowledge of the very effence of the part llrpngly character!fed your whole per formance. I have feen your predeceflors in the part, and if I don't fay ycu are fuperior to them all, I can with truth affert you are inferior to few, I mean not this as a forced compliment, but my real feniimcnts. Tam an otter flranger to you, and may poffibly ever continue fo ; the impulfe of fatisfaclion alone actuates me on this occasion, and candour requires me to pay a tribute where it is% much deferved. That you may experience that degree of public favour to which your afliduous /endeavours entitle you, is the fincere wifh of Jan, i?, 1775.       .   Iheatricus Amicus. NEWS from AMERICA. Brought by the Charming Nancy, Captain Deverson, arrived at Portsmouth from Bolton in 1twenty four Days. WrLLiAMSBURGH, in Virginia, Nov. 10. THIS afternoon the whole body of Mer-chants prefent in this city, fuppofed to be between four and five hundred, waited upon the Hon.

The Addrefs of /^Merchants, Traders, and others, at a general Meeting in Williamf- iurgh. ' " Genthmen, " YOUR generous and voluntary interposition, at a time when we. were under appre-henfiops that fome meafures would be adopted -derogatory to .the importance of the caufe we wifli to fupport with propriety, and contrary to the intention of the General Congrefs, and by your wifdom and prudence pointing oat fuch methods of proceeding as have removed our fears, and given univerfal fathfa&ion, demands oar moft grateful acknowledgment. " Truly fenftble of the neceffify\of pre-ferving peace and harmony, not only between the different Colonies, but alfo.among all ranks and focieties in each Colony, and to fliow bur readinefs to *oncur in fuel* prudent meafures as are moft likely to procure a re-drefs of our grievances, we npw" prefent the aflbeiaiion, voluntarily and-generally figned ; and as we, on our parts, refolve to adhere ftriftly thereto, we. hope to be favoured with your advice and afliftance on every future emergency.?' _       ; To Which they received, the following an-fwer: " Gentlemen, .    . ,  " It gives us great fatisfaftion to find that oar conduct has received the approbation of your "efpe&able body, and you may be af-fured we ihall on all occafions endeavour to move on the firft principles of juftice and the conllitution.. The Pelegates are very fen-fible of the great advantage this country will "receive from your union with them,' and they con�der it as very meritorious that you, dif-regarding the influence of your commercial intereft,-have gsnerouily concurred with them  in the great ftruggle for liberty. . Such unanimity, we truft, will convince an inimical ad-miniilratioh of the imprudence of their meafures, and produce effects fo falutary as to make us refle'ict with pleafure on the part we have taken in fupport of American free-dom." New London, Dec. 2. The town of Eaft Hanipton on Long Ifl.md, have laid a tax on "the town Tufficient to raife one hundred pound? New York currency, for the fupport of the induftrious poop in B jfton.   And, A fubfeription is alfo fet on foot in every parifh :hrough the county of Suffolk, on Long Ifland, to raife donations for the fame laudable purpofe; a Committee.is appointed in each parilh to receive the fome, and inftruc-tions are given to John Fofter, Efq; of Southampton, to colled fuch grain, flax, &c. as ihould be fubferibed, and tranfport the fame fo Boflon in the month of March next. The Committees of Correfpondence for the towns of New London and Groton, be-' ing inf rmed that Sir Philip Dumarefq, mer-i chant of Bofton, who was one of the. ad-: dreffers to Governor Hotchinfon, arrived at New London laft evening, and put up at Mr. Tiiomas Allen's, irinholder:-Thereupoa-we, waited on the faid Mr. Dumarefq at nine o'clock, arid informed him that it would be difagreeable to the inhabitants of the above-, faid towns for him to continue long in New London ;-and entered into a free converfa-tion with him relative to the faid. addrefs.   He allured us that he was forry he ever figned it, and gave us the underwritten declaration, which was well approved of by the faid ComV mittees. "- Neva London, Nov. zg, 1774. " WHEREAS I figned an addrefs to Governor Hutchinfon in which I had no other view than the welfare of Great Britain and her Colonies, a reconciliation between which I imagined would bt fbnvarded thereby ; but being now feofible that ic was an error, I am. f .Try that I figned it, ar d hope this fincere declaration will rcinftate me in the favour of all true friends to the cchflicution of both-countries. **       DUMARESCU" Bofton, Dec. 12. Our brethren in the country are cautioned to beware of falfe brethren, as there are unfortunately fuch in almoll every town. Could we poffibly' conceive that fuch a morifter of ptrfidy fhould inhabit any town of this province, as to become a fpy and bafe betrayer of his brethren, when they are Aruggling to redeem not only themfclves,. but the very mifcreantwho abets the confpi--racy againft them, from the foul fiend of tyranny i I weep; for the degeneracy of my countrymen 1 Reflect, ye miferable hirelings on iheaeceflary confequences of your apoftacy at this diffrefling" juncture! and ye bafe de-fetters of your country's oaufe, who are in league with the enemies of America, who are preparing to revolt and out the throats of.your brethren, fhould the hour of hazard ever arrive ; ye are known our abhorrence of your conduct is enkindled, do not urge our patience too far, the hour of vengeance comes louring on, the hand of defperation may urge a ftroke fatal to the bofom that could Harbour fuch infernal defigns. Friday died at Roxbury, Mr. Benjamin May, in the fixty-feventh year of his age; he was a truly refpectable member of fociety, aealoufly attached tO the caufe of his country, and fo deeply concerned for its welfare, that, perceiving his ftrength was almoft exhaufted, he called his friends round about him half an hour before his death, and earneftiy requelted them not to infringe the refolutions taken for faving the country, but in all things relating to his funeral to adhere ftrictly to the advice of the Continental Congrefs. TheJollowing is an account of fome proceedings at Bolton in New England. Bofton, Dec. 12. At a meeting of the freeholders and other inhabitants of Bofton, at Faneuil Hall, on Wednefday the 7th inilant, Iby adjournment, a committee of 65 perfons was appointed to carry- into execution, in the town of Bofton, the agreement and aflbciatiori of the late refpectable Continental Congrefs, feven of whom are to be a.quorum. At the above roeetihg the following gentle? men, viz. Jonathan Williams, Efq; Moderator fro. tern, the Hon. Janies Otis, Efq; Dr. Benf jamin Church, Dr. Jofeph Warren, Mr. John Pitts, Jofeph Greenfeaf, Efq; and Mr.WilT Ham Copper, were appointed a committee to draught a vote .of thanks of the town of Bofton, expreffiye of their gratitude'for the benevolent afliftance which they have received from the Other colonies, during their prefent cala-diities, and particularly for" the generous recommendation of the.refpectable . Continental Congrefs-, for further fupport from their colonies, dufing their unhappy ftruggle under the arbitrary and oppreflive meafures of the Britifh Adminiftration. J if is'humbly recommended to the fevera! towns through this province, asa matter well worthy their attention, that ekch town.pubI;fll and diftribute as many of the aftbeiation pa? pers as will ferv& every mailer of a family in each town, who will then have his duty plainly before him, and enable him to aflufc the fevera![committees that .may be appotnte4 for executing the nobfeTefolutions adopted by the grand American'Cpngrefs, for the fal-vation of our country. "The town cf Wey-; m-uth have ordered a number of thefe papers to be poblilhed, and every man to be Tupplied therewith. This laudable example, it. is to be hoped, will be followed by every town, through'this province and continent." - We learn from undoubted authority,, that Lord Dartmouth, Secretary'of State, has writ*' ten a circular letter to the Governws oVi this continent, informing them,. " that his. Ma-jeity has thought fit, by his order in" Council^ dated the 19th Oflober 1774, to prohibit the exportation fromGreatBrirain, of gunpowder, or any fort of arms or ammunition, and has fignified to them his Majefty's command, that they do take the moft effectual meafures for ar-reftingi detaining, and fecuring- any gunpowder, or any. forts of arms;or ammunition, which may be attempted to be imported into, the province over which they . refpectitely prefide, unlefs the mailers of t^e (hip having fuch military (lores on board (hail produce a licence from his Majefty.^or the'Privy Coun-:; cil,'for the exportation of the fame fiom fame of the"ports of Great Britain:." , The-[Vlaffjchufets Spy contains the following article: Bofton, Dec. 10. The town of Marblehead, at a fullmeeting on Monday the 7thult. una-' nimoufly made choice of a large committee for executing the plans of th? Ccminen-al and Provincial Congrefles' It likewife appointed a day for choofing militia ofBcers, and a coni-Ttvfttee for each company, to give' perfona] warning to all on thealarm lift for the purpofe- mentioned. Directions were given by the To* n to the Cierk, /or entering on the records,fuch pen'ons as Ihoulihy rthe Province be conlidered and publifhed " rebels a-gainft, theiiate ;" and to the c-^-i'rabies arid follectors to pay io Henry Gardner, Efq; monies which they then had, or in.future might have in their hand', belonging to the province ; tlie advertifemems of the late Trea furer Gray being treated with the contempt due to one of the rebel lift. A company and train of artillery will, byptivate fubfeription, be likewife provided in the faid town for defence of American freedom. FOREIGN  ARTICLES, From a Morning Paper of Saturday. The Police of Paris have adopted an in-ftitution " for the effectual recovery of thofe who are feized, to all appearance, with fudden. death." The fuccours to be admi-niileted on thefe occafions are, the fumes of tobacco,"'"together with " certain fpirituous liquors," which are to be inrufed into'the body by the means of a tunnel.. Dr. Gar-dane, one of the Faculty at Paris, is the inventor of this method, and the Magiftrates have deputed, him to fuperintend the application, and pufli the discovery to the utmoft perfection. The ferjeant* and corporals jof the different regiments have received orders to make ufe of this remedy in cafes of emergen-cy> and t'hePelice hath'prornifed a distribution of rewardsVto thofe Svh'o, under Providehce, ufe itwith fuccefs. Dr. Gardane's inftitution for applying the remedies, and a box containing the whole of the apparatus neceffary on thefe melancholy occafions, may be had of Ruaultj bookfeiler, in Harp-flreet, Paris. For the efficacy of this prefcription it would be arrogance to vouch; but the phyfician who turns his thoughts even to the difcovery of a probable reftoratiye, gives ample proof that his ingenious refearches are directed by principles of philanthropy, which entitle him to the thanks of his fpecies. At Genoa advices have been received, that a French {hip richly laden, and bound from Cadiz to that port, was forced by a ftorm into Toulon harbour. The merchants and Owners of this vefTel were, when thefe advices left Genoa, in the greateft confternation for the fafety of the ftiip and cargo. A moft violent hurricane hath committed prodigious devaluation on the coaft of Lan- gaedoc; -tWo Swedifli ,vefleis, laden ^ pitch arid timber were loft, and a third fottD. dered in the golph of Lyons. Not a foul on board either of thefe veflels efcaped. The Dey of Algiers hath granted permif. fion to export from, his1 dominions one hun, dred thoufand facks of~c rn for Marfeillcs. From Vienna there is advice arrived, that atPodivio, a Moravian city, a moft violent fire lately broke out, which has reduced to aihes the town houfe, the church, ard one hundred and fifty houfes. This is no ltf, than the third calamity of the kind which, within.a very few years, hath befel this un! happy town, but the damage occafioned by the laft conflagration, will, it is feared, ope. rate to the final ruin of the inhabitants. A Spanifh regifter fhip, called, �� T],e Conception," lately arrived in the Bay 0{ Cadiz. She was laden with eighty thoufand hides, and fix hundred thoufand double piaf. tres; fhe was under convoy of a Spanifh man of war, and her cargo is efteemed the richeft that hath arrived, for feveral years pail, from Buenos Ayres. . The Paris Gazette hath an article, dated from' Civitta Vecchia, which announces the :fafe arrival of the Duchefs of Kingftonj and declares it to be her intention to refide for fe. vera! years at Rome : in cohfequence of wliich the arrival of her equipage and houfhold fur. niture is faid to be hourly'expected.-Thus far the Paris Gazette; and, admitting the truth of the fact,, we have only to lament that the air of Italy fhould be found fo neceffary "for the re eftablifhment of the lady's health. Two Phyficians- at Madrid have publicly atteftedi that S girl about feven :^years old, whom they vifited whilll under a fma!!-pox of the malignant kind, was afterward* Fo dread-fully sfHicted with a gangrene in- her mouth as to loofe-p�.rt of her tongue; notwith-ilanding which, fhe now articulates with fuch diflinclrief* as to be eafily UnderJlood, and can pronounce the moft difficult words in the Spanifh language.
