rtLOU THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 19 August 1817

rtLOU THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER. Extract of a latter from a gentleman on an excursion to the ufi/ier counties of Virginia, “Harper's Ferry, awc. 8. “ It gave me much pleasure to find the projected turnpike road between the bridge over the Little Falls of Potomac and Leesburg commenced, and with such spirit, as to promise its completion within two years. Sure never was a turnpike more needed; it is difficult to imagine how the road can be travelled by heavy laden waggons in winter, which is even now scarcely passable for light carriages. The commencement of the road, I am informed, has had the usual effect of competition, to stimulate the proprietors of the Little River turnpike to great exertions to level and graduate it. The new road I consider of great importance to Washington ; for though leading directly to Georgetown, it will ultimately tend to the advantage of the city, whose interests & those of George* town are more closely connected than is believed by those wh...

CONSPIRACIES AND INSURRECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 19 August 1817

CONSPIRACIES AND INSURRECTIONS. Our last dates from Europe, furnish us with nothing but accounts of insurrections and conspiracies. There had been partial disturbance? in France, and insurrections in several different provinces of Spain Seditious assemblages had taken place at Munich, which had obliged the 'Bavarian Government to call out several Regiments to restore tranquility. A simultaneous rising was contemplated in the northern and middle counts of England on the 9th of June, which was rendered abortive only through the timely precautions of government, aided by the vigifcnce and activity of the crown offices. At Lisbon on the 36th of May, a deep laid and bloody conspiracy was discovered and suppressed by the Portuguese Regency. Upon this latter event, the accounts being silent as to the causes which led to it, a few suggestions will perhaps be acceptable, It will be recollected, that since the flight of the royal family from Lisbon, in consequence of the hear approach of the ...

From the Christian Disciple. In the Evangelical magazine for No* vember, 1816, we have a concise review of a pamphlet entitled “Means of improving the condition of the poor in morals and happiness, considered in a lecture delivered at the Minor Institute.” This work is highly recommehded as (( a most seasonable production,” and as “affording in a pamphlet the condensed information of many volumes.” A picture of mendiciity is drawn which is truly frightful. “London beggars alone amount to fifteen thousand— nine thousand of which are children.”' *■ The cause of these evils is then traced and is found %o originate in ignorance, idleness and intemperance. ‘‘The number of females in the kingdom at large, who exist by prostitution, is calculated at one hundred thousand , one half of whom infest the metropolis! “Other sources of evil are considered —the extent of credit, perjury, smuggling, gambling, tippling, dram drinking, &c. “The evils of war are pointed out and a table is ...
