CHAPTER X.

JUNE, 1. -- WE hear from Newark, in New Jersey, that a few days since, a number of persons who live near the mountains, and from their wickedness and poverty have properly acquired thcappellation of the Back Shad, in consequence of a resolution of the pious Reverend Commissary Caldwell, and his associates, who were lately convened at Chatham, repaired to the learned and renowned Justice Campbell,and there, agreeably to the directions of a late law made by the humane, William Livingston, swore that a number of the inhabitants of the township of Newark were dangerous to the liberties of the State, and ought to be removed back into the country, whereon this great magistrate issued his warrant for their removal, and gave them till this day to prepare for their departure. This will probably create some disturbance, as our informant tells us that the obnoxious inhabitants refuse to go unless compelled by force.1

The "Back Shad" at New Jersey.

JUNE 6. -- THIS day arrived at New York, Ebenezer Hathaway and Thomas Smith, who, on the 18th of May last, made their escape from Simsbury Miles,2 after a most gallant struggle for their liberty. These men declare, that they were two of eight belonging to the Privateer boat Aventure, which was duly commissioned; that they were taken in Huntington Bay, Long Island, on the 7th of April, by seven rebel whale-boats, manned with seventy-three men, and that night carried across the Sound to Stamford, in

Hathaway and Smith's Adventure.
