NEW-YORK, June ig. j \Ve have it through different; channels, that the Breft fleet had | r 3! i e d, but by the Lydia, from | linieiick, we are informed that j lord Bridport miffed tJie enemy | in a fog.

This expe dition has been in contemplation for upwards of nine months and the rninifter of the ii-unne, p€i fonaily fuperintended the equip ment. Unprecedented exertions weie made to render the fleet as comnlsat and formidable as pof fihle! Money was bi ought down to Breft by the minifler whofe prefence animated the woikmen and Tailors, and pro duced themoft energetic aftivityv Wc have fome ’eafon to believe, that if the hoflile fleets meet, the French will make good ufe of their land troops, for the pur pofe of boarding the B itifh vef fds. In each inftance, wherein they have tried this experiment, they have been fuccefsful. Since the commencement of the pre fenc war, the Britifh admirals have uniformly endeavored to come to dole aftion, an I to Angle out the veflels inftead of fighting as formerly in a compatl line.

A conflitution which au-! thorifes the king whether r^ue, 1 fool, or madman to declare war or to make peace, and which exprefsly ftipuiates that the fovereign mull be confidcrecl as a fupernatural being, a foie of beneficent deity that is incapa ble oi doing wrong. Such Ame ricans is flic form of govern ment fo enrhufiaftically admired by a well known chara&er, why not then adopt here this work of wildom, and gratify the feel iings of a man who wifhcs to become the monarch of Ame rica.
