The Boston massacre. We Are indebted to or William Silliman of East Haddam conn., for a copy of the new London Gazette of March 20, 1770, from which we make the annexed extracts. They relate chiefly to the Quot Boston massacre Quot As it has since been called a transaction which roused the spirit of the colonists and especially the Bott Means. To a pitch of excitement bordering Ltd desperation. The population of Boston was at that Lime less than 20,000, it required several regiments of British troops backed by the civil Power to keep them in subjection or rather several regiments being found inadequate to this purpose they were removed for their own Safe in As Well As the peace of the town immediately after the massacre to Castle William or an Island in the Harbor. The paper from which we copy if not the Only one of the kind now in existence is at least one of a very few which Lime and Accident have bears the Mark of great age As might be expected. We shall hold it at the disposal of its owner and in the mean time shall multiply its principal contents by h or 6000.�?n. K Jour. Commerce. Boston March 5, 1837. One Day last week a Soldier who had Long passed for the bully of the 29ih regiment bought two baskets of charcoal from a Stoughton Man arid in payment offered a piste Een in lieu of a shilling Sterling which the Man refused and insisted on Money or the return of the Coal. The Soldier denied to do either on which the charcoal Man said he would take it out of hide rather than trouble himself much about it. To which the bully very readily agreed and was Laid sprawling at every pabs till quite tired of the diversion he professed satisfaction took fellow combatant to an Alehouse and amicably settled the dispute. Not quite so fortunate were two of these Don Quixote adventurers who fell upon a Young Man or. Justice Hill came up As this last riotous multitude advanced told them he was in commission of the peace and commanded them too of to their Barracks. In this exercise of duly he was struck at by one of them with a club Wii inh a had it reached might have been fatal and so daring was tie Felu a that in the mag is irate s presence he knocked Down a labourer dra Gired about and beat and abused much in despite of the Justice s utmost interposition. No less judicious was the behaviour of a tall negro drummer to whom Justice Hill particularly Spike Liim Home but he intent on wounding or probably killing the inhabitants headed the party sword in hand but had sword heat from hold which however being chained to body he carried with . He is said to be much wounded. This Gallant party assaulted Many single persons in the Street As they returned from the t at the but did not a considerable damage As we learn. Between 5 and 6 the same evening a Large body of them collected again and were in Lull March for the Field of Battle when or John Gray owner of the walk met them and diverted la Weir attention for that evening. But on saturday about half after 4, three Stout. Grenadiers armed with bludgeons As above described came into the walk and finding three Young men spilling together unarmed accosted them in these most imprudent words Quot you Dan d dogs Don t you deserve to be killed Quot the lads not answering or. James Young came up and spoke a oddly on which a Grenadier aimed a blow at head but i. Vii Init fended it off with arms he then turned from Young and made a pass at or Archibald m Neill Jun which he avoided otherwise believes it would have killed . During this Bustle one of or. Calef s went int j the tan House got two bails and giving one to Comrade soon cleared the walks of the sol Diers. The remains Toiyo Tirgg spider the unfortunate boy who was barbarous by murder etl of the 22d of february last was decently buried on monday following. His tragical deals and the Peculiar circumstances attending it had touched the breasts of All with the Lende Resl Sunipa ii a few Only excepted who have Long shown themselves u be void of the feelings of humanity. The Little Corpse was set Down under the tree of Liberty from whence the procession began. About five Hundred school boys preceded and a very numerous train of citizens followed in the estimation of Good judges at least two thousand of All ranks Ami list a crowd of spectators who discovered in their countenances and deportment the evident Marks of True sorrow. The pall was supported by six youths chosen by the parents of the deceased. Upon the fool othe coffin was an inscription in silvered letters latest Anguis i Herba intimating that in the gayest season of life and amidst the most flattering scenes without the least apprehension of an evil hour we Are exposed to the unseen arrows of deals the Serpent is lurking in the grass ready to infuse deadly Poison. Upon each Side Lieret lethal is Arr undo in English 7 he fatal Dart is fixed in breast and on the heat was another inscription Inocentia no squad Tuta the original sentiment reversed and denoting that we Are fallen in the most unhappy times when even innocence itself is no where Safe upon this very sorrowful occasion and during the solemnity the suns of Liberty ordered a Hoard to be affixed to Liberty tree inscribed with the following quotations from the sacred writings which perhaps cannot easily be misapplied thou Shalt take no satisfaction for the life of murderer a he shall surely be put to deals. Though hand join in hand the wicked shall not pass unpunished. Tie memory of the just is blessed. Boston March 12. The town of Boston a fluids a recent and melancholy demonstration of the dets Euclive consequence of quartering among citizens in a time of peace under a pretence of supporting the Laws and aiding civil authority. Every considerate and unprejudiced person among us was deeply iii pressed with the apprehension of these con Mer a what passed at or. Gray s rope walk Imp already been Given to the Public and May he i Iid to have Lead the Way to the Date cata3lni>hy.�? that the rope walk lads when attacked by i Peri or numbers should defend the Selv a Vii so much spirit and Success in the club a by was too mortifying and perhaps it May hereafter appear that even some of their officers were unhappily affected with this Circum St a Quot a evidence already eol Leclede shews that Many threatening have been thrown our by the soldiery but we do not pretend to so recon carted plan what in the evidences Are published the world we May however venture to declare thai it appears too probable from their co iii it that some of the soldiery aimed 11 draw and provoke the townsmen into squabbles and that they then intend a to make use of other weapons than canes clubs or bludgeons. Our readers will to butlers accept a circumstantial account of the tragical affair on monday night last but we Hope they will excuse our being so particular As we should have been had we not seen that the town was intending an inquiry and full representation thereof.
