203. WH Sat Jul 5, 1794: North Ord, (Branford) June 20. On Thursday afternoon, 19th inst. passed over this place a cloud out of the S.W. the head of which was very thick and heavy, like the common thunder cloud; but of a very light smoaky colour and agitated beyond description. It’s height and diametrical extent about one eighth of a mile; of a circular figure, whirling in a most violent manner from its center. From its center issued a vortex of air, (similar to what is often seen in water) which descended to the earth, and alternately increased from 1 to 2 rods apparently, but really from 5 to 20. As I stood and viewed it, at times it appeared to divide into a number of whirls, yet all complete in one. This vortex had constant communication with the cloud above, and when it contracted (the vortex) the wind lulled a little, but when it expanded, frightful to behold! The herbage of the field, the fowls of heaven, fences, leaves, boughs and trunks of trees filled the atmosphere, and whirled
in every direction. No rain or hail fell from it; zigzag in its coarse attended with an alarming rumbling something like that of an earthquake. A providencial circumstance! It did not take many buildings in its course, those which it did were moved from their foundations; prostrated to the ground or wrenched asunder and whirled at a distance. The lowest ground was marked with the greatest havock; there the sturdy oak; the stubborn maple; the classic walnut were twisted off or torn up by the roots. Orchards and forests yielded to its violence. The damage and destruction of buildings and fences is considerable, but the greatest loss sustained is in fruit-trees and sugar-maples; one gentleman lost forty-five very valuable apple-trees; another a number of apple trees and forty or fifty maples. Damage and devastation were the uniform marks of its progress. The place of its first and last appearance I have not been able to learn; on each side of it all was calm. A gentleman set in his stoop and felt nothing of it, at the same instant he saw his barn (about four rods off) rise and move a small distance from its foundation.
Thursday afternoon, a violent gust of wind, or rather a tornado, passed thro’ several towns in this state, from the Westward. The first account we have of its progress, is from Poughkeepsie, state of New York, where several buildings were blown down, or unroofed; trees torn up by the roots, &c. in this state, in the towns of New-Milford and Newtown, is said about 30 houses and barns were blown down or much injured, and that some lives were lost. Its effects were severely felt in Waterbury and Watertown, but we have received no regular information, only the above from the parish of Northford.

207. WH Sat Jul 5, 1794: (Never before Published.) Epitaph. By Timothy Dwight, D.D.
This monument

Is erected to the memory
The Honorable Israel Putnam, Esquire,
Major General in the armies
The United States of America.
If thou art a soldier,
Go not away,
Till thou hast dropped a tear,
Over the dust of a Hero,
Ever tenderly attentive
To the lives and happiness of his men,
Dared to lead,
Where any one dared to follow:
If thou art a Patriot,
Remember with gratitude,
How much thou and thy country
Owe to the distinguished and gallant exertions
Of the Patriot
Who sleeps beneath this marble:
If thou art an honest, generous and worthy man,
Render a sincere and cheerful tribute of respect
To a Man,
Whose generosity was singular,
Whose honesty was proverbial,
And who,
With a slender education,
With small advantages,
And without powerful friends,
Raised himself to universal esteem,
And to offices of eminent distinction,
By personal worth,
And by the diligent service
Of a
Useful Life
Born at Salem (Massachusetts) January 7th, 1718.
Died at Brooklyn (Connecticut) May 29th, 1790.

208. WH Sat Jul 5, 1794: Augusta (Georgia) May 14. Fort-Fidius, May 10, 1794. Sir, I have to inform your Excellency that this morning between the hours of 10 and 11, a party of one hundred and fifty mounted militia, under the command of Major Adams attacked the Indian camp, on the other side the Oconee, opposite to this port. The Indians were dispersed; some fled to this garrison for protection, there were before the affair happened, about twenty in the Fort, who were to have left us this evening: they had been waiting for the return of the Chiefs from Augusta; and conceived themselves under the care of the United States. That no disagreeable consequences might follow, they were all sent away about two o’clock this afternoon, except one who had been hired by Mr. Seagrove as an interpreter, and Mr. Barnard and his son. It is extremely painful for me to transmit to your Excellency this disagreeable intelligence. The hopes of peace appear to be blasted; as both sides are now greatly irritated. I have however the pleasure to inform you that there has not been any killed, and I have not heard of but one being wounded, on either side. I have the honor to be, with the greatest respect, your Excellency’s most obedient humble servant.
Constant Freeman, A.W.D. His Excellency the Governor of Georgia, A copy from the original, Edward Watts, S.E.D.

209. WH Sat Jul 12, 1794: Philadelphia, June 25. Last evening an express arrived in town from the Head-Quarters of the Western Army. We understand that the following was the only material occurrences that had taken place with the troops under Major-General Wayne. On the 13th of May last, the advanced guard of an escort of seventy infantry, and eighteen dragoons under the command of Lieut. Clark, having in their charge 700 horses belonging to the contractors, and the quarter master general’s department, were suddenly attacked by a party of Indians, who killed the corporal and five of the men, at the first fire. The dragoons who were in the rear of the advanced party, headed by Lieut. Lee of the infantry, charged the Indians and put them to flight before the infantry could come up, killed one Indian, and took six rifles, some blankets and provisions. The army were to be reinforced by mounted volunteers from Kentucky, and would probably soon move forward into the Indian country in considerable force.

210. WH Sat Jul 12, 1794: July 4. On Sunday the 22d of June, departed this life Richard Henry Lee, at his seat at Chantilly in Westmoreland county, Virginia, in the 63rd year of his age; a Philosopher, a Patriot, and a Sage: - these characters he had supported through his life; at his death they supported him and he died as he had lived; blessed his country.

211. WH Sat Jul 12, 1794: Hartford, July 7. On Friday last, the anniversary of American Independence, the Society of Cincinnati for the State of Connecticut, met in this city. At 11 o’clock, the Society, preceded by a ban of music, moved in procession from the State House to the North Meeting House, where a prayer suited to the occasion was made by the Rev. Mr. Strong, and an Oration, replete with sentiments truly republican, was delivered by Mr. Elijah Waterman. After the exercises were finished, the procession returned in the same manner to the
State House, where the following Gentle were chosen officers for the year ensuing:
Gen. Ebenezer Huntington, President.
Col. Benjamin Talmadge, Vice-President.
Capt. Ephraim Kirby, Secretary
Nathan Beers, Esq., Treasurer.
Henry Dagget, Esq., Assist, Secretary.
Col. Joseph Wilcox, Assist. Treasurer.
At four the Society dined at Mr. David Bull’s. After dinner the following toasts were drunk: 1. The United States of America. 2. The President of the United States. 3. The Vice-President, Senate and House of Representatives of the United States. 4. The Governor and State of Connecticut. 5. The Allies of the United States. 6.

The greatest good humor prevailed through the day. The Society made grants to all the necessiteus of the Society; and the widows and children of deceased officers, and of the surplus of the ____ arising on their sands.

212. WH Sat Jul 12, 1794: Strayed from the subscriber about the middle of May last, a bay yearling Mare Colt, with a white star in the forehead, and one white hind foot.

Pomfret, (Abington society) July 5, 1794.

213. WH Sat Jul 12, 1794: Particular account of the late Tornado at New-Milford. New-Milford, June 24, 1794. Last Thursday week we were visited with the most tremendous tornado ever known in these parts, or perhaps in America. It entered this town a little below the north-west corner, and proceeded a few degrees south of east. Several intelligent gentlemen have pursued its path thro’ this town, and made as accurate observations as the confused ruins will permit. Its breadth at the medium was about 60 rods, varying according to the situation of ground, widest in valleys. Happily for us it passed thro’ a tract not the most thickly inhabited. The havock it made with timber is undscribable. The sturdiest oak the toughest walnut, with every other tree in its way, are prostrated in every direction, some torn up by the roots, but most twisted off from 3 to 15 feet high. Its path through woods is visible as far as the eye can reach. Every fence is demolished; not sparing even the stone walls. Providentially but few cattle were killed; 23 buildings were destroyed, or materially damaged,being all, save one, in its course; of these, 12 were unroofed, and otherwise racked and torn (House of Ben. Ha[dloch?], barn of Jer. Baldwin, house and saw-mill of Jno. Marsh, house of Gershom Bennett, do. of Joseph Henne[ss?], barn of Capt. Reuben Bostwick, house and furniture of David Johnson, do. of Uriah Tucker, saw-mill and grist-mill of Enos Camp, and a school house. 8 barns were demolished from the foundations (1 of Ben. Hadlock, w of Jno Marsh, 1 of Gershom Bennett, 1 of Ben Stone, jun. 1 of David Johnson, 1 of Ben Morehouse.); 3 houses were destroyed (Widow Davenport’s, Ben Stone’s, jun. Thad Collins’s), one of the houses owned by Mr. Ben Stone, jun. was stript of all its covering and much of its timber, and swept of all its furniture, clothing and provision, to the lower floor, scarcely an article was found whole, and much cannot be found at all. Mrs. S. was not at home; Mr. S. with 4 children took to the barn, which was new and strong, but just as they entered the bay the barn overset and
they were carried under the sills into the yard, where timber and fragments of trees were constantly pitching around, yet they escaped with slight wounds. Another house owned by Mr. Thad. Cole, suffered if possible, a still greater destruction. And what adds peculiar distress, Mrs. Cole with her infant child and a certain Mr. Tucker were buried in the ruins. By the assistance of neighbours they were extricated, after lying about an hour in misery. The child was killed in its mother’s arms; the mother much bruised, and Mr. Tucker is supposed to be mortally wounded. In another place, Mr. John Carpenter with two sons, one [11?] years old, and 5 or 6 hired men were caught in the centre of the vortex. They all fell on their faces and clung to the grass, where they were violently whipped up and down, and considerably bruised; rails and trees were dropped thick about them; one struck across Mr. C. and his little son, wounded the former in his back, and beat the head of the latter two inches into the ground; and it is still doubtful whether he will survive. The damage done to the grain grass, &c. is considerable.
Perhaps it will not be unacceptable to give some account of the amazing strength and terrible appearance of this phenomena. The following facts may be relied on. A horse of Mr. Carpenter, was taken and carried 12 rods against a steep side hill where he indented the ground with his body 5 or 6 inches deep; then was whirled back nearly the same distance, and found dead. Another horse which was hitched at the door of Mr. J. Marsh, (who was a great sufferer) was found 40 or 50 rods over a stone wall in a field of wheat. A new heavy ox-cart, was torn in pieces & scattered in a circular, direction as follows, one wheel with the axle tree lay about 3 rods from where it first stood; the other wheel was carried 2 or 3 rods further, and violently beat into the ground; the body 4 or 5 rods further still, and an Iron Washer a rod or two beyond. A large br__k [looks like “brook”] was taken into the air and fell upon the adjoining land. A purse containing 16 dollars, (Mr. Stone’s) was found, 8 or 10 rods from the ruins of his house; it was put into his case of drawers. Sundry larger trees were carried 30, 40 and 60 rods. A large barn door was found 8 or 10 miles from whence it was taken. But the greatest effect that I saw was the removal of a heavy oak log, 50 feet long and 9 inches through at the small end. This had been laid on the lower side of a road which ran on a steep side hill, and was leveled with dirt and gravel. It was taken up with another smaller one at the end of it, and thrown completely over the middle of the path, where it now
lies. As to the appearance of the storm, numbers of people were at various distances from it, whose accounts do not materially differ; it happened; about 5 o’clock P.M.; the sound was heard some time before it came on. A length of it came in sight over the western hills like a body of thick dark smoke or fog, wreathing and whirling in the most furious forms. When it descended a hill it seemed to pour like a turbid ocean with an accelerated velocity, and widened as it reached the plains. Those who were directly before it saw the appearance of fire. Mr. Carpenter viewed it till it reached within 6 or 8 rods of him before he fell. At that distance there appeared innumerable streaks of fire running across it in every direction: others at a greater distance saw a luminous appearance; perhaps it arose from the friction of the matters whirling in the vortex. All who were caught in it agree, that when it came on it was dark as night, and lasted 3 or 4 minutes; that the noise was most tremendous, and there was no rain till after it had passed. But those who were near it and just escaped had a different view still, a
view most awfully sublime. It passed like a high and extensive flood of darkness, tumbling and curling with the most rapid motion, in the wildest confusion, full of branches of trees, boards, doors, casks, cloths, wool, and some think they saw animals of various kinds, it is certain many geese fowls, &c. are missing where it passed in this town, and cannot be found. One thing deserves particular notice for its sublimity, it was a Tamarac tree which had been taken up by the root, and was carried along in the position it grew. Sometimes it would settle down almost to the ground, then rise with rapidity 300 feet in the air; this it danced along till it went out of the view of the astonished spectators. And what heightens the sublimity, is 2 or 3 large objects, supposed to be barn doors, appeared to play with the tree, attending around it in all its vagaries. We have heard of this Tornado from the westward as far as a few miles beyond Hudson’s river. It did much damage in Poughkeepsie.

214. WH Sat Jul 19, 1794: Philadelphia, July 7. This forenoon arrived here from the southward, by land, Piomingo, or the Mountain leader, and a number of other Warriors of the Chickasaw Nation.

215. WH Sat Jul 19, 1794: New-London, July 17. Friday night last, a small sloop belonging to Middletown, bound to New-York, Thomas Goodwin, master, sprang a leak, and sunk about a mile from Eaton’s Neck, Long-Island; they attempted to run her upon the Neck, and unfortunately delayed leaving her so long, that before they effected it, she had become water-log’d, and the sea running high, made a fair breach over the decks. On board were the Captain, one hand, the Captain’s wife and her sister, daughters of Mr. Elihu Starr, of Middletown; the women were swept from the vessel and drown’d, and the men reached the shore in the boat, with the greatest difficulty.

216. WH Sat Jul 19, 1794: Advertisement. Stolen out of the pasture of the subscriber the night following the 7th inst. a red Mare, four years old last spring, shod only before, with a white streak in her face, her near hind foot white above her ancle, which carefully observed appears a little bigger than the other; trots and paces, never docked. Whoever will take up said Mare and Thief, or give information where either of them may be found and secured, shall be generously rewarded, and all necessary charges paid, by John Staples. Canterbury, July 8, 1794.

217. WH Sat Jul 19, 1794: Anecdote of Leonora of Aquitaine. About the year 1146, Louis VII thought it a matter of Conscience to give an example of commission to the command of the bishops on the subject of long hair; he did not only shorten that but even shaved his beard. Leonora of Aquitaine, a vivacious, flighty, jocose princess whom he had married, rallied him upon his short hair, and shaved chin; he devoutly replied to her, that these things were not to be jested with. A woman who once begins to find her husband ridiculous, seldom hesitates about affairs of gallantry, if she has the least turn that way. Leonora received pleasure from the love and assiduities of the prince of Antioch, Louis perceived it, & repented having carried her into Syria. Upon his return from the Crusade, he upbraided her in the sharpest manner; she replied with much haughtiness, and concluded with proposing a divorce to him, adding, that she knew how to procure one, as a trick had been put upon her; for that she thought to have married a prince, and she had wedded nothing but a monk. The misunderstanding between them unhappily increased, and their marriage was dissolved. Six weeks after she was married to Henry duke of Normandy, count of Anjou, and afterwards king of England, who obtained with her, by way of dower, Poitou and Guienne. Hence, arose those wars which ravaged France near three hundred years. Upwards of three million Frenchmen perished, because an archbishop was offended with long hair; because a king had cut his hair, and shaved his head; and because his wife looked upon him ridiculous with his short hair and shaven chin.

218. WH Sat Jul 26, 1794: July 18. (By Express.) Sir, The inclosed papers from Capt. Denny came to hand yesterday, which with two letters directed to your excellency, and one to Gen. Knox, I now send to you express, as they contain matters of the utmost importance to the state. The British have at length succeeded in accomplishing their long wished for object in getting the Six Nations to join the western Indians against the United States, and I am afraid our frontiers will feel the effects. Your Excellency may rest assured that nothing shall be wanting on my part to afford them and Capt. Denny every assistance in my power. I have the honour to be, &c. Your Excellency’s humble servant, John Gibson.

219. WH Sat Jul 26, 1794: Pittsburgh, July 7th, 1794. Copy of a letter from Israel Chapin, Superintendant of Indian affairs for the six Nations, to the Commandant at Le Boeuf. Presque Isle, June 24, 1794; 3 o’clock, p.m. Dear Sir, I have just arrived at this place with a deputation from the Six Nations of Indians consisting of 16 Chiefs and warriors, with a message we were desired to deliver to some people whom they supposed were here, I thought it would be consistent to inform you of my arrival, and that I shall be at Le Bouef to-morrow at 2 o’clcok, with this deputation, I am, sir, your obedient servant, Israel Chapin, Superintendant of the Six Nations.

226. WH Sat Jul 26, 1794: (The following was published in a Hand-bill in London, on the 17th of March. It developes the most horid circumstance, that ever astonished a newspaper reader.) Horrid Practice Detected. To such an alarming pitch has the practice of stealing dead bodies arisen, that repose and security is not to be found even in the grave. It was but the other day that Lambeth Church Yard was robbed of more than two hundred bodies, as appeared by the empty coffins dug up. Last summer, it may be remembered, three cart loads of human bodies and limbs were emptied in a field near the City Road, to the great offence and danger of the inhabitants of this city: as from the extreme heat of the weather, and the putred state of the flesh, an infection was to be feared. About the same time two cart loads were emptied at Pancrass. The following are all the particulars yet discovered, concerning the present offence. Near Mile End Turnpike a man and his wife have for some time resided, who, by the inhabitants of that neighbourhood were suspected of receiving dead bodies in their house. On Monday noon a hackney-coach was by some persons observed to stop at the door, and a hamper and a sack being removed from it drew their attention; when one of them saw a human hand hanging out of the latter. Immediate information of this circumstance was given to the Police Office, White Chapel. In consequence of which several of the officers searched the house, and entering the kitchen found in two coppers a number of human limbs boiling, and the flesh nearly off the bones, in a back parlour, some tubs filled with lime water, in which were a number of human skulls; and in the rooms above, several bodies and human limbs: in the whole, there was nearly Forty Skulls discovered, and Limbs and Bodies in proportion. The man and woman who lived in the house were taken into custody by the officers, and were with much difficulty conveyed in safety to the Police Office, so exasperated were the mob that had there collected. In the course of their examination, they said they had received the bodies from Surgeons, in order to prepare for skeletons. They were committed to prison. The mob broke the windows of the house from top to bottom, and would have gone to further acts of violence, but the officers appeased them. But what renders this offence against humanity more horrid, is that there is a great reason to think from the state in which some of the bodies were found, that they did not die a natural death; some of the flesh being quite firm and fat, and fresh as if just killed. It is hoped proper inquiry will be instituted, to bring the perpetrators of such shocking crimes to condign punishment. Account of Use. To which the several parts of the human body is applied, by those who deal in carcases. Of the bones they make skeletons, and lamp-black; of the fat tallow for candles, and other uses: it is also used in medicine. Of the solid flesh it is difficult to say what use is made; but this we know, that the tongues, hams, cheeks, and other parts were found in a salt pickle, as if preparing a feast for Cannibals, for such it seems we have in this country.
