intending to close their concern on the 31st Instant, will be particularly
thankful to those indebted to them, for early assistance, that they may thereby
be enabled to pay their Debts. It is their earnest wish, this Notice should be
attended to, as on the contrary it is their fixed determination to lodge all
Notes and Accounts indiscriminately, which remain unpaid by the first of March
next, in the hands of their Lawyer, to be recovered without loss of time; -
such proceeding they sincerely hope, may be prevented, as the same will be
extremely repugnant to their feelings, however it being a duty they owe their
Creditors, as well as themselves, they cannot be blamed.

To the Editor of
th [sic] Royal Gazette.
Sir, - By
inserting the following (if they meet your approbation) you will confer a
favour upon A Youth.
climes, by wintry storms perplex'd
Are, by wars
horrors, to their centre vex'd
Fair peace glides
quickly o'er the azure main,
By far more
gentle, bounteous shores to gain;
swells his rapid tide,
To fertilize the
plains on either side,
'Tis there she
claims her peaceful throne to place,
And with her
kindly arts, the land to grace -
Thus sung the
gentle bard three years ago,
The truth he sung;
for bard the truth foreknow,
And lo! within
that period of time,
What changes made
beneath this happy clime.
changes, greater bards may sing,
My muse, is borne
but with a youthful wing.
Agriculture, let them relate
And sing changes,
made in "Church & State"
are my tender themes,
objects, oft compair'd to dreams,
And chief of
these, behold the mimic world arise,
transcendant, to deceive the eyes,
"To wake the
soul, by tender strokes of art,
To raise the
genius, & to mend the heart."
Goepel! to they
industrious care we trace,
improvement, in this peaceful place,
Let criticks, with
their hyperborean cant,
Defame the stage,
say all is fustian, all is rant,
Yet will their
rigour on themselves redound,
For enemies are
few, tho' friends abound,
But lo! see Momus
pale, his face in tears,
His form the
deepest marks of sorrow wears;
He mourns a
favourite, fal'n alas too soon!
Death clouds o'er
shadow'd him, ere yet his noon,
Like some fair
plant, which just its leaves disclose
untimely, plp't by winter snows,
So falls Goepel,
yet not unmark'd his fall,
remember'd with his name by all,
His works die not,
for yet, (ere long I trust,)
renewed, shall grace his dust
And genial friends
once more unite to please,
Shall charm the
town, with true Theatric ease,
And while loud
'larums, shake the eastern shore,
Urg'd by a daemon,
with daemoniac pow'r,
Britania, we secure shall stand
Nor dred, the
wrathful tyrants stern command,
For while Britania
rules the azure sea
We live secure,
contented, happy, free.
It was expected
that the Schooner for which a Signal ran up this morning would be from
Barbadoes [sic], with Cummin's Bag, or the Second December Mail, but she turns
out to be an American, 45 days from St. Andrews, without any thing new.
