Warden's Office, Philadelphia.
"Cor the information and government of Owners, Masters, and
others, having the command, care, or charge of Ships or
Vessels within the port or harbour of Philadelphia, the
Wardens of the port conceive it necessary to publish the
following Rules and Regulations:

1. Kvery ship or vessel that may arrive in this harbour,
and that shall come to anchor in the stream, any where be-
tween Almond street (in the district of Southwark,) and
Vine street, having previously caused bet gunpowder, if she
bad any on board, to be landed as the law directs, may
main in that situation 24 hours, and no longer: taking care
to lay as near to the Island, or Sand-bar, as may be eo:.
tent with their safety. But if, from the circumstance of a
vessel having servants on board, or from any other cause, it
may be thought necessary or convenient to lie a longer time
in the stream, then, and in every such case, the Owner, Mas
ter, Pilot, or other person, having the charge or direction of
such vessel, shall remove her from opposite the city, and
.shall moor her, or cause her to be moored to the northv.
vf Vine street, with one anchor and cable up, and one anchor

and cable down the stream; and in both the above-mentioned
situations, the regulations contained in the next succeeding
article to be duly attended to.

2. When a ship or other vessel shall be hauled into any
wharf or dock, or along side of another vessel that may be
lying at such wharf or dock, the Owner, Master, Pilot, or
whoever may have the command, care or direction of her,
shall have her securely made fast, and if outside of another
vessel, shall get one good fast from each end of the vessel to
the shore, and within 24 hours thereafter, cause her jib-
boom, spritsail-yard, main-boom, ring-tail and driver-booms,
if any they have, to be rigged in, and their lower yards top-
ped up, in such a manner as least to interfere with vessels

3. If any vessel, properly moored in the stream, shall have
her anchor or cable overlaid by another ship or vessel, in an-
choring or mooring, the Master or person having the care or
direction of such last-mentioned ship or vessel, shall imme-
diately, or soon as may be, after application made to him by
the party aggrieved, cause the said anchor and cable so over-
laying, to be taken up and cleared.

4. If the fasts of a ship or vessel, when moored at a wharf,
shall extend across a dock, so as to obstruct the passing or
repassing of a shallop, lighter, ov other craft or vessel, the
Master or other person having the charge or command of
such ship or vessel, shall, upon the first application, imme-
diately cause such fast or fasts to be cast off or slacked down.

5. No outward bound vessel putting off from a wharf, shall
?ie longer in the stream, between Vine street and Almond
street (in the district of Southwark,) above-mentioned, than
24 hours. And if vessels lying at the end of wharves, so
much interlock with each other, as to prevent vessels from
hauling in or out of the docks, the Master, Owner, Pilot, or
other person having charge of the same, shall immediately on
application from any person so wanting to haul his vessel in
or out of the dock aforesaid, have the vessel or vessels, so in-
terfering-, moved in such maimer as to accommodate the one
applied for; in which case the vessel making room for ano-
ther to haul in or out, shall have liberty to make her warps
fast to the most convenient place adjacent for a reasonable
time, and that all sea vessels, when transporting or wanting
