653. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: New-York, Sept. 23. On Sunday
afternoon last, a pleasure boat was overset in a heavy gust of wind,
in the East-River, near Blackwells island, by which unfortunate
circumstance, four men were drowned. We understand one of the men
is named Griffith, and kept a boarding house a little above Peckslip;
the names of the other three we have not yet learned.
654. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: Hartford, September 28. Extract
of a letter from a gentleman in New-York to his friend in this city,
dated Sept. 21.
I am sorry that I cannot give you such a favorable account, of what is
vulgarly called the Yellow-Fever, as I could wish, (but which I think is
a Malignant Bilious Fever,) I believe you may say that about 200 persons
have died within these six weeks, the beginning of last week, 43 were
buried in 3 days, eleven the day following, and since the alteration
of weather, it seems to abate something of its violence. It is amazing
see what a panic people are struck with, moving furniture both by land,
and water, (like May-day,) pure fear I think may kill a man, almost as
soon as a Cannon Ball, I have heard say a man flying towards Albany to
avoid the disorder, died (perhaps of fear) before he reached the place.
Extract of another letter from the same gentleman
dated Sept. 25. We are by a further Proclamation, forbid intercourse
with Philadelphia for one month from 21st inst. both by land and
water. The people still in a very great panic here, there being from
18 to 20 dying daily; but the
doctors have unanimously declared that no new cases, or applications
have appeared these two days past.

Thomas Shaw, Esq. aged 57.
657. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: State of Connecticut, 5th
Brigade, October 2, 1795. The Brigadier General having attended on
the Reviews of the
Regiments of Infantry, and the Regiment of Calvary, feels himself under
the highest obligation in a public manner, to return his thanks to the
Commandants of the Regiments, and the Officers and Soldiers, for their
Soldier-like and exemplary conduct on the days of review. That the
industrious citizens of this State should without pecuniary compensation,
so nearly perfect themselves in military discipline and uniform dress
exceeded the most sanguine expectation of the General, and commanded
the applause of every spectator. The General observes with
peculiar pleasure the orderly manner in which the officers and soldiers
retired from the exercises of the day. Although the various reviews
were attended by a numerous concourse of citizens, no disorderly conduct
or accident intervened. By the order of the General, John MClellan,
Brigade-Major. Days of Review in the 5th Brigade, commanded by Brigadier
General Moses Cleaveland. On the 23d of Sept. at Pomfret, the 11th Regiment,
commanded by lieut. Col. Lemuel Grosvenor. On the 24th at Plainfield,
the 21st Reg. Commanded by lieut. Col. Luther Bingham. On the 29th at
Lebanon, the 12th Reg. Commanded by lieut. Col. Daniel Tilden. On the
30th at Windham, the 5th Reg. of Cavalry commanded by Major Jacob Loomis.
On the 1st day of October at Mansfield, the 5th Reg. commanded by lieut.
Col. Abel Simmons. The 11th and 12th Reg. of infantry and the 5th Regiment
of Cavalry were reviewed by his Excellency the Captain General attended
by the Adjutant General, the Brigadier General and their suits. The 21st
by Maj. General James Gordon, attended by the Adj. General, the Brig.
Gen. And their suits. The 5th regiment by Brigadier-General Moses Cleaveland,
attended by the Adjutant-General and suit. The Regiments were inspected
by the Brigade Inspector, who gratefully acknowledges the exertions of
the officers and soldiers in appearing so nearly being perfectly equipt
in the various requirements of the law &SHY; and the cleanliness and
good order of their arms. J. MClellan, Brigade Inspector.
658. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: For Sale. An excellent Farm
in Stafford, containing 150 acres, fine mowing, pasturing, plow land
and timber, well
assorted, with fine beds of Iron Ore, 250 apple treess, well assorted
as to age, and the best of fruit; a well finished dwelling-house, in
fine arched ball-chamber; two convenient stores, two barns, a pot-ash,
and other convenient out-houses, &c. the best stand for a tavern
place, (where one has been kept for 16 years past) and as good a stand
for trade as any in the county of Tolland, nigh the Meeting-house,
Furnace, Mineral Spring, and good neighbours. Said Farm is well worth
1500(l). For further particulars, apply to John Phelps, Esq. or Mr.
Salmon Moulton, of said Stafford, who are duly authorized. Howard Moulton.
Troy, Aug. 14.
659. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: Broke into the enclosure of
the subscriber, on the 19th instant, two Mare Mules, one black, the
other a dun, have no artificial marks, they are 3 or 4 years old.
The owner is desired to pay charges and take them away. Jabez Bradley.
Tolland, June 29, 1795.
660. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: Broke into the inclosure of
the subscriber, a two year old horse Mule, of a lightish sorrel colour.
The owner is
requested to prove property, pay charges and take it away. Nathan Starkweather.
Lebanon, (1st society) Sept. 28, 1795.
661. WH Sat Oct 3, 1795: Receipt for the Canker Rash.
As soon as the symptoms appear, take Senaca Rattle-Snake roots, or
mountain flax, add a little Saffron, and Virginia snake-root, steep
it well and give the patient plentifully of the tea sweetened with
honey: but by no means,
any thing hot. When the rash is out, omit the Saffron, and add Avins
root, take a spoonfull or two, often, and if the throat swells bind on
Mullen leaves. When the Rash is turned, and the fever abated, purge with
small doses of flour of sulphur, or common brimstone, powdered, and nothing
else. Never has been one within my knowledge who has been strictly attended
to as aforesaid, but has recovered &SHY; while others, to
appearance not so dangerous, who have been treated with pukes, 7c. &c.
are soon taken out of the world. The Senaca rattlesnake root is perhaps
the most powerful antiseptic vegetable in the whole materia medica, manifested;
to mention no more, by its almost immediate cure of the bite of a rattle-snake.
662. WH Sat Oct 10, 1795: New-London, October 8. Extract
of a letter from a gentleman in New-York, to the Editor. October
5. You may rely on the reports of the committee of Health.
They sit every day in the city hall publicly, sextons, physicians,
and all others; these they examine and compare, in the presence of
as many spectators as choose to attend, and form their reports from
them. All done openly, without a shadow of deceit. I have made every
necessary enquiry, and you may depend that last evenings report,
29, is not above 2 or 3 short of the truth, so in proportion. A great
part of our citizens have left the place not because the malady is
so fatal as represented, but to prevent its becoming so. A
very large majority of the sick recover. The Health Committee
of N. York, have reported the following deaths, since Thursday last.
Friday, 10 &SHY; Saturday; 13 &SHY; Sunday, 29 &SHY; Monday, 14 &SHY;
663. WH Sat Oct 10, 1795: Windham. Died, at Ashford,

for the district of Hebron, hath allowed the term of six months from
the date hereof, to
the creditors to the estate of Shubel Cook, late of Coventry, deceased,
to exhibit their claims to me the subscriber, properly attested, in
order for settlement, or be debarred a recovery according to law. Catherine
Cook, Admx. Coventry, Oct. 8, 1795.
667. WH Sat Oct 17, 1795: Whitestown, Sept. 23. At
the present time, through the whole of this western country, sickness
and death prevail
beyond what has ever before been experienced since its first settlement.
Scarce a family escapes; and numbers of whole families labor under the
affliction of a dreadful disease. The diseases most prevalent, are, the
lake (or Genesee) fever; the intermittant fever, and the ague and fever.
The lake fever handles its votaries very roughly; and many are forced
to yield to its unrelenting sway. We have, however, authority to say
that the lake fever is not confined wholly to laketowns; but is frequent
in the most inland towns.
668. WH Sat Oct 17, 1795: Windham. Married.
Mr. Ashbel Welch, to Miss Peggy Dorrance.
Mr. Jonathan Linkon, to Miss Susannah Denison.
669. WH Sat Oct 17, 1795: The honourable court of probate
for the district of Plainfield, hath allowed the term of six months,
6th of October, 1795, for the creditors to the estate of Ebenezer Lyon,
deceased, late of Canterbury, to exhibit their claims properly attested,
to the subscriber, or be debarred a recovery, agreeable to law; and for
the conveniency of the creditors the subscriber will attend said
business at the dwelling house of the deceased on the last Monday in
October instant, and the first Monday in November next. Ephraim Lyon,
Executor. Canterbury, October 8th, 1795.
670. WH Sat Oct 17, 1795: Broke into the enclosure

673. WH Sat Oct 24, 1795: Albany, Oct. 9. The treaty
at Fort George has broke up without coming to any issue on the business
of its meeting. The Indians insisted on their claim to an extensive
tract of land in this state. The real Indian title to which was extinguished
long before the late war, by purchases made of the Mohawk Indians,
then considered as the sole proprietors of the soil. And it is but
a very few years since the Indians of St. Regis even suggested their
present claim. The Commissioners would not acknowledge it in any
sense, but offered the Indians as a gratuity 3000 dollars. This they
refused. The Indians wrote a letter on the subject, to the President
of the United States &SHY; and the conference ended in perfect good
harmony. There were about 370 Indians present.
674. WH Sat Oct 24, 1795: Winchester, Oct. 5. Extract
of a letter from Knoxville, Sept. 15. Since my last, containing
an account of the peace which had taken place between the Creeks
and Chickasaws, that perfidious and deceitful nation has broken it
and marched upwards of 1000 warriors against the small and friendly
nation of Chickasaws. How this business will terminate, I am at a
loss to conjecture &SHY; but I am informed the Chickasaws are strongly
forted, keep a good look out, and are determined to give the Creeks
a warm reception. What a shame it is that the U. States will suffer
such warm friends to them as the Chickasaws are, and have always
been, to be cut off by the Creeks &SHY; friendship and humanity shudder
at the idea of their not meeting with full and ample protection,
as the vengeance of the Creeks is pointed against them on account
of their revenging the many murders and depredations committed on
their brethren the Americans.
675. WH Sat Oct 24, 1795: Providence, Oct. 17. We feel
a peculiar pleasure in announcing to the public, that the bridge
Rhode-Island with the continent, at Tiverton (Howlands ferry) is

noble specimen of bridge architecture, uniting elegance with strength,
and does honor to the noble projectors, as well as the ingenious
Architect, Major Whiting of Norwich. The bridge is 900 feet long, 36
feet broad, has 52 piers, and a sliding draw, on an improved plan, which
one person may move and replace with ease; the greatest depth 8 fathoms
and a half at low water.

683. WH Sat Oct 24, 1795: To be sold, a fine stand
for a Blacksmith, with a House, Barn, Blacksmiths Shop and
Coal House, with two acres of excellent Plowland and Orcharding,
situated one mile west of Ashford (east society) meeting house; for
further particulars enquire of the

684. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: Augusta, Sept. 20. Was killed
lately at his house in S. Carolina, Robert Thomas, Esq., one of the
Senators of this
state in the last general Assembly; he was shot dead by some person unknown
&SHY; but is generally supposed his death was occasioned by his
voting for the Yazon bill, and receiving upwards of four thousand dollars
for that vote.
685. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: Extract of a letter from
an officer in the Western Army, to his friend in Massachusetts, dated
Grenville, August 7. A peace is concluded with the Indians, and,
I believe, th3 best that has ever been made. I think they will go away
better satisfied than they have at any former treaty. It was signed the
3d inst. It has been a pleasing scene to me. I have been a witness to
parents receiving their children, who have been absent for 15 or 16 years
and had grown to an adult state, but could not speak one word of
English &SHY;likewise some of the Indians who had been with our people,
and totally lost their mother tongue. Husbands meeting their wives and
wives their husbands on both sides. The other day a beautiful girl came
in who was married to an Indian; her father came here in quest of her &SHY;
she had been gone about 12 years, and was seven years old when she was
&SHY; her father despairs of having her restored to him again &SHY; she appears
quite afraid of him. One respectable old man from Kentucky, had two sons, whom
he met there, the oldest could speak a little English, and remembered the time
of his capture. The father took them both home; they stayed with him but a
few days, then stole two of his best horses and left him. I believe white savages
are harder to be civilized than Indians. Do you wish to know how I live? I
will tell you; I have furnished, every day, as good a table as I had when you
were acquainted with me in New-England. I have three cows, and the means of
keeping them; the expense of purchase is here a mere trifle; not half so much
as with you &SHY; I have plenty of poultry and as good a garden as can be seen
in your part of the country &SHY; have beef and mutton in, plenty; the
latter the best I have ever seen before &SHY; we have also wild game
sorts, And at all times, deer, bear, turkey, partridge, &c. In short
I had no idea of this country until I came here &SHY; it may be justly
be the finest in the world.
686. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: Windham. Married, at Norwich,
Mr. Dudley Hovey, of this town, to Miss Polly Moore.
687. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: Windham. Died.
Miss Henrietta Ripley, daughter of Maj. John Ripley, aged 25.
At Lebanon, Mr. Francis Snow, aged 52.
688. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: The Land Company in the County
of Windham, are notified, that an adjourned meeting will be holden
at the house of Dr. Adams, in Canterbury, on Monday the ninth day
of November next, at ten oclock A.M.
689. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: Dan Rowe, Clothier, Informs
the public that he has set up the Clothiers business in Brooklyn,
where in addition to the usual business done by clothiers, he carries
on blue dying, either in wool, yarn or cloth, of all shades, from
sky-blue to navy-blue. Any
person wanting any work done in the above line, may depend upon having
it done with dispatch, and in a workman-like manner, or no pay asked.
This may certify, that the above Dan Rowe, served his apprenticeship
with me, and is a workman of the clothiers trade, and is well instructed
in the art of blue dying. Daniel Stearns. Colchester, Aug. 17, 1795.
690. WH Sat Oct 31, 1795: Strayed or stolen from the
subscriber, on the night of the 22d inst. a sorrel Horse, five years
old, fourteen hands
high, with a white streak in his face, a natural trotter, his fetter-locks
have been galled with fetters, and he has a wart on the underside of
his jaw, his mane is dockd the near side. Whoever will take up
said horse and thief, or give information so that the thief may be secured,
and the owner may recover his horse, shall have Ten dollars reward, and
for his horse only, Two dollars, and all necessary charges, paid by me,
Asa Russell. Lebanon, October 23, 1795.
