Though, inasmuch ga Jinjor Craig withdrew from tte business in'1708, leaving it in tho sole chaigccf .his partner, Gen.

THE GREAT FETE C1IAMPETRE AT m. NEWPORT. The great Ftie Ckampetre given In honor of Mr. Peabody, the London Banker, by Sir. Wetmork, came off at Newport, R. I., on Monday. The correspondent of the New Tork Daily Timts says that it was altogether unprecedented, in Newport at least, for its magnificence, and was a brilliant success. Invitations to some three thousand persons had been issued, and the number presentvras not leas than twenty-five hundred. If it had been given on any other day but Monday, there would have been two or three hundred more; for it was estremelj- inconvenient for many who had received invitations to spend Sunday at Ken-port, which it was necessary to do, a there is no way of reaching this ontof-the-way place on Monday. The little steamboat Governor left New York on Sunday afternoon, and a few guests came in her • but as it is not generally known that there is such a convenience as a Sunday boat from New Tork, many who would have been glad to avail themselves...

It has been proposed in Virginia that the Free Masons make up tho sum necessary to purchase it, by the subscription of a dollar or less from each individual.
