Tue general mourning is the fame a* ii always ordered, when the Court does not go into deep mourning j and by the exprellion dicent inourning, is meint what is commonly callsd fuond. mourning. This we thought proper for the infot mati'n.of our readers. We may further ayquaint rttetn, that for the benetk of trade, the mourning for his late Majefty-was fhortened to half the ufual.time, fc having been before ufual to continue it for a tuelvt-tnontb.
