As their Refult in this Matter will mojl nearly affeQ the future Profperity and Happir.efs

The Wifdom and Jufiice of Government, in bringing to exemplary Punifhment, Men
who in Defiance of all Ties, divine and human, in cold Blood, could perpetrate fuch horrid
Murders, and thereby kindle the Refentment of the Natives againfi us, cannot fail of
producing good EffeSfs; 7nore efpecially when made ufc of in the prudent' Manner propo fed
by Sir William Johnfon. r r j

Nothing floall be wanting on cur Part, conjifient with Duty to our Conjiituents to
iraprove the Harmony fubfifiing between the fever al Branches of the Legijlature, which is
ever produBive of the mofi falutary Effects ; and we hope, will at this Time enable us to pive

but the advanced Seafon will by no Means allow going through all that calls for our
Attention at this Time.
