The Convener of the County produced to the Meeting a draft of resolutions. which, being read, were unanimously approved of, and subscribed by all the members of the Meeting. Copy of which Resolutions follows : We the Noblemen, Gentlemen, Freeholders, Justices of the Peace, Commissioners of Supply. and Proprietors of Lands in the shire of Ayr, assembled in consequence of pub- lic advertisement,: to consider the propriety of expressing our sentiments and resolutions, 011 the present. crisis— having observed, for some time past with the greatest concern, that doctrine's not only the most seditious and treasonable, but which tend to the subversion of all law and government, have been openly published, circulated and propagated, by factions and designing persons in this country, who have not even scrupled to call to their aid the profligate anarChy of France; whilst at the same time, under the specious pretext of Reform they have been endeavouring to insinuate them- selves into the confidence of the people— Do esteem it a duty incumbent upon us, to declare this our firm and decided opinion. That the British Constitution is the most perfect system of Government, and the best adapted to humane happiness and the posperity of a state, of any that has ever appeared upon earth. That by the successful combination of its mixed Powers we believe, ait that humane wisdom can do is already done, to guard against human imperfection the principle alone being declared unalterable; the mode left to the judgement of the legislature to vary as circumstances require. we therefore be- hold with astonishment and horror. the attempts which have been made to undermine and overturn our beloved Consti- tution, at a period too, when its singular blessings ought to have been most peculiarly felt by all— and we most thank- fully applaud the wise and vigorous measures of Govern- ment which we trust have given an effectual check to the designs of the flagatious, and the and of the unwary. Impressed with these sentiments we Unanimously Resolve-: I. That at the hazard of our lives and fortunes, we will support our King and Constitution, against all foreign or domestic foes. II. That in our several capacties we will exerr ourselves in suppressing the seditious, and ut- ireclaiming the misled. lil'. that we conceive, if any errors exist in the detail or Government, the legislative possesses sufficient power to rectify them. IV. That the present unparalleled. prosperity of the king- dom demonstrates that no evils of such magnitude, as to call for an immediate reform, do exist And, lastly, V that in the momentuous and alarming progress of a neighbouring nation, the avowed enemy of the Monarchy, any discussion of the kind could only tend to embarrass verment, at a time when all hearts and all hands ought to unite in its support. ' The thanks of the meeting were then voted to the Earl of Eglintoun, their PRese ANd to Mr, hamilton of Sundrum, the convener of the County, for his attention in calling the meeting and preparing the Resolutions.

THE Committee of Merchants trading and carrying on the Fishery to the island of Newfoundland, from Gnat Britain, take this public method of informing those who are concerned, in the trade, and whose particular address they are unacquainted with, of their having received from the chief employers in that valuable Fishery, ( residents for the summer season in the island of Newfoundland) a letter in reply to the general one addressed to them by the Ccnunittee, of which the following are the copies. To the MERCHANTS . and EMPLOYERS in the FISHERY, at the Island of Newfoundland. GeNTLEMeN, I am ordered by tbe Committee of Newfoundland trade, to inform you that the bills which were before Parliament at the time you left England, the one entitled " an Act for tbe regulating the Fishery in the Island of Newfoundland," the other the Judicature bill, the former imposing a du- ty of three pence per Gallon upon all Spirits Imported into the island, and obliging every employer to give a list of all his servants to a certain receiver who was to be appointed by the Chief Justice, and to pay to the said Receiver forty shillings for each servant,' and the receiver to provide Vessels for bringing them home, for which trouble he was to receive five percent; and what remained of the forty shillings after the passage was paid to go towards tke ex- pence incurred by this Act, with seVeral other oppressive Classes. — And the latter to give authority to a Chief Justice and assessors to try all causes whatever without a Jury; and a POwer to the said Chief Justice to appoint Assignees to the estates of all Insolvents, with several other alterations in the old and estabished mode of administering Justice : are the first not passed into law, and the Judicature bill modified as not to be so very injurous as was designed, and to continue but for one year. And the trade and fishery of the island of Newfoundland to; be taken into considerarion early in the next Sessions of Parliament by a Committee of the honourable house, and such clauses in the Act of Parliament . ( which now regulates the Fishery) as are found oppressive and destructive to Its welfare, will be repealed; and such future regulations made as will receive the trade an Fishery, which hath been sinking to ruin for many years past. I am, Gentlemen, with great respeCt, Your most obedient, humble Servant, JOHN TEED, Secretary to the Newfoundland Committee. Dartmouth, June 8th, 1792.
