118. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: Knoxville, Feb. 27. On Wednesday, Feb. 27. On Wednesday the 4th inst. James Russell, Robert Shannon, and William Cox, on their way from Nashville to this place, were ambuscaded on the Cumberland mountain, 18 miles from South-West-Point, by a party of Indians, consisting of about 25, who fired on them, and wounded Russell thro’ the body and arm. Russell and Shannon were coming from Gen. Robertson to Gov. Blount with public dispatches. That these men were not killed may be counted among miracles. The facts respecting this transaction are as follow: As these men passed Obid’s river, the preceding day, they discovered a fire, which induced them to push forward about fourteen miles, when they turned off the road, and laid all night without fire, judging they would be followed by Indians. The next morning they kept the woods four miles before they struck the road and finding no sign of Indians, they pursued their rout in confidence that they had not been discovered, but they had not proceeded above half a mile, when they found themselves in a well chosen spot for an ambuscade, surrounded by Indians, the most distant of whom was within thirty feet;they all fired, and many of them threw their tomahawks, without doing any injury, except to Russell; the ball which struck him was turned in its direction by a large metal button, or it would have passed through the most vital part of his body. Mr. Russell is now at the block-house, South-West-Point, under the care of a surgeon, and it is hoped the wound will not prove mortal.

119. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: Knoxville, Feb. 27. Extract of a letter from a gentleman in Sumner county, (Mero district) dated February 8. “A party of about 6 Indians yesterday in the afternoon, fired on James Gamble, as he was cutting wood, within one hundred yards of Captain John Morgan’s station; they pursued him within 50 yards of his door, when they were fired on by one man (there being only two in the station) upon which they retreated. One ball passed thro’ Mr. Gamble’s breast; he is still languishing, but it does not appear that he can recover.

120. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: We the subscribers being by the hon. court of probate for the district of Windham, appointed commissioners to receive and examine the claims of the creditors to the estate of Mr. Isaac Cushman, late of Mansfield deceased, represented insolvent;
hereby give notice, that six months from the date of this advertisement is allowed for the creditors to exhibit their claims. Attendance will be

Isaac Cushman, late of Mansfield, deceased, are hereby requested immediately to settle the same with me the subscriber, without further
notice. Amasa Stowell, Adm’r. (on said estate.)

day of May next, so much of the real estate of Joseph Barrel, Esq. non resident, as will pay the town taxes in our hands to collect against
said estate, together with the lawful charges arising thereon. Eleazer Richardson, James Richardson, Paul Carpenter, Town Collectors. Lebanon, April 3, 1974.

124. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: The hon. court of probate for the district of Plainfield, having allowed seven months from the first day of April
instant, for the creditors to the estate of Sarah Munro, late of Canterbury deceased, to exhibit their claims against said estate. Those

April 4, 1974.

125. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: Will cover, the ensuing season, at the stable in Ashford, in Eastford parish, the imported horse called Fearnot. Said Fearnot was sired by the best blooded hunter in Yorkshire, called Conqueror, who was owned and kept by lord Miklewood, and covered
for twenty-six guineas the single leap, and six guineas for grooms service, and out of a favorite hunting mare, owned by the Marquis of
Rockingham, called Dove. Said Fearnot, is seven years old next June; is upwards of sixteen hands high, of a bright bay colour. Said horse for
beauty, carriage and spirits, is allowed to be by the best judges, equal to any horse in Europe, or America, and shews the hunting blood very
compleat, which evidence he carries with him. Much more might be said with propriety, as to his pedigree, but is too lengthy for an
advertisement. Fearnot, though of the highest spirits, is of a most pleasing temper and humour. The terms for covering are, five dollars the
leap, and seven dollars the season; Cash to be paid when the mares are taken away. Should any mares put for the single leap, prove not with
foal, by paying two dollars more, they may go the season. Nichols & Averel. Ashford, April 8, 1794.

126. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: Bosphorus, that truly tough and game full bred Horse, will cover the ensuing season, at the stable of the
subscriber, in Windham, at six dollars, the season, or four dollars the single leap, the money to be paid before the mares are taken away.
Bosphorus’ sire and dam were imported by Gov. Sharp of Maryland. He is jet black, full fifteen hands and half high, with bone, muscle and
figure sufficient to attract the notice of breeders of good Horses. The owner doubts not but Bosphorus’ points will stand the test of the
strictest examination; and pledges himself that the facts stated in the following pedigree are well authenticated. Bosphorus was got by
Brilliant, out of the Maid of the Mill, his grand-dam Selima, his great grand-dam Old Selima, bred by Lord Godolphin; Brilliant was got by
Badger, his grand-sire was got by Lord Chedworth’s Bosphorus, justly esteemed the best twelve stone horse then in England; the Maid of the
Mill was got by Othello, and her dam by Childers. Good attendance given, by Benjamin Brewster. Windham, April 11, 1794.

127. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: The subscriber being appointed Executrix to the last will and testament of Ebenezer Geary, late of Lebanon, deceased, give notice to the creditors of the deceased, to bring in their accounts to the subscriber well attended, within six months from
this date, otherwise they will be debarred any recovery. Lucy Geary, Executrix. Lebanon, 8th April, 1794.

128. WH Sat Apr. 12, 1794: A receipt for making a bad Husband a Good one. Take of the plants, sincerity, cheerfulness and modesty, each one pound, of the mother of carefulness two hands full, infuse them into a larger portion of personal decency mixed with the flowers of
complaisance, drain the essence from all impurities, and add of the oil of condescension, quentunt sufficit. This has been found a never failing
nostrum, and may be safely given in large doses, morning, noon, and night. N.B. The inventor of this nostrum has ranged the whole kingdom
of Botany, and exhausted the resources of chemistry, to discover a preparation that would make a bad wife a good one; he is sorry to say
his researches have been ineffectual; he can therefore, as a prescribing physician, only give the ladies his advice, which is; to keep good
while they are so.

129. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: Philadelphia, April 7. Extract of a letter from Cincinnati on the Ohio, dated 3d of January. Wayne has advanced a post on St. Clair’s battle ground. He calls it Fort Recovery. About 300 skulls have been buried there of the Unfortunate who fell on the 4th of
November. They were interred with military honours. Some pieces of field ordnance have been recovered. Two companies are left to garrison the post. The army remains in its former cantonments at Grenville, 6 miles in advance of Fort Jefferson. All the cavalry are in Kentucky. Many officers have been [captured?] and more is expected, will experience the like fate; a few have retired in disgust, and thus matters stand.
Morgan’s sentence has been announced in orders. He is broke. As to privates, the present army is composed of a set of great vagabonds. I am
one among many whose property has been severely plundered by them. The officers here, themselves say that the service could not suffer by the dismission of three quarters of the soldiers; ‘Tis a poor presage! It would excite your wonder to see the extensive settlements and
improvements that have arisen notwithstanding the war on both sides of the Ohio, since I was last here. Between this and Pittsburgh a distance of 150 miles, towns and scattered houses appear almost every where. The town I am in has increased wonderfully indeed and another has grown on the opposite bank of that river called Newport. Newport stands at the mouth of the Licking.

130. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: Philadelphia, April 7. On Sunday afternoon a boat was overset in the Delaware, and of ten persons who were in it, 5 were drowned. The names of the unfortunate sufferers, were Francis Anderson, Mrs. Anderson, Thomas Cook, Polly Cowart, and Polly Goldie.

131. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: Philadelphia, April 9. By a gentleman just arrived from Lexington (Kentucky) we are informed, that Gen. Wayne moved from his winter cantonments, with the legion of the United States, on the first of March, for the Miami Villages.
The same gentleman also informs, that previous to the march of the legion, a duel was fought by lieut. Houston, of the 2d, and lieut.
Bradshaw of the 1st sub. Legion, which terminated in the death of both, the former having expired on the spot, and the latter twenty hours

132. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: New-Haven, April 10. It is reported, in many parts of this state that a disease now rages in this city similar to
that which prevailed in Philadelphia last fall, which report is without foundation. The Scarlet Fever, sometimes denominated the Ulcerous sore Throat or Canker Rash, which has raged in the neighbouring towns, has been the prevailing epidemic in this city ever since the 1st January 1794. The number who have been affected with this epidemic during this period, is 290, of which only 8 have died. The malignancy of the disease has abated, and its symptoms appear comparatively mild.

133. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: New Haven, April 10. Hamden, April 9, 1794. On Monday last, Capt. Thomas Potter, of Hamden, ordered out his company for exercising; Mr. Allen Potter called on him in the morning, and as is customary on such occasions, discharged his piece to honor his Captain, which burst into a number of pieces, one went thro’ his clothes into his breast, and one into his shoulder; by its bursting tore off his hand, all but his thumb, which hung by a tendon; the Doctor examined his wounds, judged them not mortal, and proceeded to amputate his hand; he bore the operation with great resolution, and sent the shattered remains of his hand out to the company as a warning to his fellow soldiers. What is remarkable, that it happened on his birthday, he being 23 years old. He appears to be in a fair way of recovering.

134. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: New London, April 17. On Monday last his excellency the Governor, attended by his Aids, and the Adjutant General, arrived in this city, and in the afternoon proceeded in company with Rochefoutaine, the engineer, to take a view of the harbor, in order to fix on the most eligible spots on which to erect fortifications. It was determined to repair forts Trumbull and Griswold, but the works of the former, which are very extensive, are to be curtailed three fourths; and a block-house to be built in each. In addition to these will be erected two smaller batteries nearer the water; on each side of the river there will be a surface for heating red hot balls.
We learn that Gen. Jedidiah Huntington has undertaken the superintendance of erecting the above-mentioned fortifications; the public therefore may rely on having them built with strength, neatness, economy and dispatch.
A model of a cannon mounted on a carriage of a new construction, was made from the directions of Gen. Rochefoutaine, and exhibited to the
Governor who expressed his approbation of it, and has directed that they be made use of in the forts of this port. The gun is placed on a
carriage nearly of the usual form, which slides on a second carriage or platform, which is moveable; the end below the muzzle turning on a
pivot, while the other end may move thro’ an arch of 180 degrees. The machinery is simple and the gun managed with less strength than canon mounted in the usual manner. This manner has two remarkable advantages, it elevates them above the breastwork so as to fire over and save the necessity of embrasures, which always weaken a fortification; at the same time it gives to the direction of the fire a sweep of 180 degrees, instead of about 15, usually allowed to embrasures; an immense advantage, when moving bodies are to be attacked. This manner of
mounting cannon is now used throughout [France?]

135. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: New London, April 17. Extract of a letter from a gentleman in New Haven, to his friend in this city, dated April 9. “Since the first of January, the Scarlet fever accompanied in many instances with the Cynancha maligna, has been epidemic here. There have
been about 260 persons, chiefly young, who have had the disease, out of which number we have buried eight only. These were persons of a highly putrid diathesis, where deep-seated lived ulceration made its appearance in the throat, on their first complaint. I am happy to inform you that the disease now puts on a more favorable aspect and partakes more of normal fevers.
The faculty are harmonious, and this city is subjected to a much less degree of mortality, than the neighbouring country towns, from the same disease. The exaggerated reported circulated by the false sons of the Prophets, have been very injurious. The panic seized them at the very period of the reign of that demon, who has periodically [resided?] in College in the month of March, during my ____mory.”

136. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: Will Cover, at the stable of James Howard, in Hampton, (at the moderate price of Seven Dollars, if paid down) the
beautiful bright bay Horse Light-Infantry, fifteen and half hands high, imported from England. I am able to prove he is one of the best blooded
horses in England or America, and proved remarkable sure last year, and is very noted for getting the best [folds], his pedigree is so length, I
shall say no more than that he was got by Old Eclipse, that was sold for 10,000 guineas, and covered mares at 31 guineas the season. N.B. Good pasturing for mares. Hampton, March 24, 1794.

137. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: Ranger, That elegant horse (generally known by the name of the Bold Hovey) will cover the season, beginning the first week in May, at the subscriber’s stable in Mansfield, where he will be kept one half the time thro the season, and the other half of
the tie at the stable of Mr. Lemuel Barrows, at Willington, a few rods north of the meeting-house. Said horse is to be exchanged on Saturday of every week, and will stop at Mr. Samuel Thompson’s, inn-keeper, in Mansfield, second society, from 7 o’clock in the morning, till 1 o’clock
in the afternoon. The terms will be 12 shillings the single leap, or 18 shillings for the season, pay down. Ranger was sired by that noted and
elegant horse the Old Ranger, and is rising fifteen hands high, and well proportioned. He has proved himself a good sire, and remarkable sure for colts. Said horse is so well known, that I think it unnecessary to say any more as to his pedigree. Good attendance by the public'’ humble servant. Richard Hall. Mansfield, 13th April, 1794.

138. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: The hon. court of probate, for the district of Pomfret, has allowed six months from this date, for the creditors to
the estate of Mr. Simon Carpenter, late of Pomfret, deceased, to exhibit their demands against said estate to the subscriber, or be debarred a
recovery. Simon Carpenter, Ex’r. Pomfret, April 1st, 1794.

139. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: The subscriber hereby gives notice to his creditors, that he shall prefer his petition to the General Assembly to
be holden at Hartford on the second Thursday of May next, to be exonerated and discharged from all his debts, upon his delivering up all
his estate into the hands of commissioners, for the benefit of his creditors; when and where they are hereby notified to attempt, and shew
reason, if any they have, why his petition should not be granted. Richard Cady. Canterbury, April 19, 1794.

140. WH Sat Apr. 19, 1794: The hon. court of probate for the district of Stafford, having allowed six months from the date hereof, for the
creditors of the estate of James Hastun, late of Willington, deceased, to exhibit their claims against said estate to us the subscribers, who
will attend on said business at the house of the deceased on the first Monday of June, July and August next. Those who do not bring in their
accounts by the above time, well attested, will be debarred any recovery. And those indebted to said estate, are desired to call and settle their accounts. Abigail Hastun, Daniel Di____, Adm’rs.
Willington, April 15, 1794.

141. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: Pittsburgh, April 5. The latest intelligence from the army is by letters dated Cincinnatti, March 6th. The Indian
flag, White eyes, &c, had given reason to expect 30 chiefs to treat, with all the prisoners amongst them, to be with General Wayne by the
14th of February. The General in order to give them a good impression of our force, was at the expense of bringing the cavalry from Kentucky, where they were wintering. But no Indians had appeared. It is most probable the British discovering their intentions, have had a talk, and have removed their dissatisfaction, and encouraged them to continue the war.
General Wayne had prepared to march to An-Glaize river, where there were said to be 200 Indians collected. The Miami towns were deserted, so that it was unnecessary to pursue the same rout which General St. Clair had intended.

142. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: Windham, April 26, 1794. Married, at Pomfret on Sunday evening the 13th inst. Mr. Oliver Angel, aged 72 to Miss Delia Fascet, aged 56.

143. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: Windham, April 26, 1794. From a correspondent. Culture of Silk. At this age of the new world, when the
treasures of nature are unfolding to view, prudent people ought to be cautious of spending their time and substance in pursuit of imaginary
wealth; but those branches of business which are proved to be lucrative, by an easy annual produce, for a series of years, on principles as
unerring as the [foliage?] of the forest, must merit general attention. Such is the culture of Silk in this country; in recommendation of which, I will state a few facts which have taken place in the town of Mansfield, in Windham County. The people of this town the last season
raised from their own trees, 362 lb. 3 oz. Of reeled silk, which, with a small addition of labor, is readily sold for seven dollars per pound,
amounting to 2534 dollars, and this with very little or no diminution of other agricultural produce, the work being performed by women and
children; by this means many indigent families, who otherwise could not obtain the necessaries of life, are placed in comfortable circumstances, and others, are becoming affluent. This business is uniformly increasing in this state, and various parts of the union; a great number of nurseries of the mulberry tree, are placed throughout the northern and middle states, which are not fit for transplanting, and it is hoped that the possessors of them will post up notifications of sale. The first part of May is the suitable time for transplanting. Those publishers of newspapers who may conceive that the above sketch may tend to give a spring to an object of public utility, are desired to publish the same.

144. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: The hon. court of probate for the district of Plainfield, has allowed nine months from the first day of April inst.
for the creditors to the estate of Mr. Uriah Cady, late of Brooklyn, deceased, to exhibit their demands on said estate to the subscriber, or
be debarred a recovery. Joanah [sic] Cady, Ex’r. Brooklyn, April 1, 1794.

145. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: For Sale, That pleasant and very commodious situation adjoining the court-house in Windham, on which is a
dwelling-house, large store, shop, barn, &c., and a large and excellent garden; being a very suitable stand for a tradesman or merchant. The
whole or part will be sold, as best suits the purchaser. Enquire of the subscriber, on the premises. Thomas Tileston. April 24, 1794.

146. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: The Royal Captain, a Jack, imported from the King of Spain’s Family, Fourteen hands high, a dapple grey, neat limb’d, and of a remarkable handsome carriage, will stand at the stable of the subscriber in Canterbury, one mile north of the meeting-house. The prices for covering mares, will be Four Dollars the single leap, Six Dollars the season, and Eight Dollars to insure a foal, or the
subscriber will purchase the mules, and pay from Four Pounds, Ten Shillings, to Five Pounds, according to their size and flesh, for each
mule at four months old, exclusive of the service of the Jack. Said Jack will cover Jills at the price of Eight Pounds, Six Dollars of which to
be advanced, the residue of which not to be paid unless a foal is produced, which shall live ten days. Benjamin Bacon. April 24, 1794.

147. WH Sat Apr. 26, 1794: Will Cover the present season at the stable of the subscriber in Pomfret, old parish, the beautiful, well-made Horse Liberty. He is of a dark, shining colour, with black mane and tail, four years old this spring, is fifteen and half hands high, and is judged to be the most complete horse in this country. He was sired by the noted imported horse [Patriot or Patroot]. The terms for covering are, fifteen shillings the season, and nine shillings the single leap. Abner Sessions. Pomfret, April 21, 1794.
