informs the Public, that in order to supply the deficiency of leather, which at the present moment is become very scarce, he offers to their notice, his new invented Shoes, made of wood, in which he has endeavoured to combine, as much as possible, elegance with convenience.

TO PROPRIETORS. To-morrow will be published, by Order of the Execu

tive Power, A Very accurate EXPLANATION of the PRIN. 1 CIPLES upon which the FORCED LOAN is to be established.

D 2

It

It may be agreeable, in the mean time, to many Proprietors, to know, that by the most exact arithmetical calculations, the FORCED LOAN will not, in the first instance, absorb more than 13-20ths of their capital; and that, if it should be found necessary afterwards to make some triling addition, by way of voluntary Loan, it can never exceed 16-20ths of their whole property.

This interesting Publication is to be found at Citizen Eaton's.

CHEAP ORDINARY. CITIZEN WELTJIE, ci-devant Purveyor at

CARLTON HOUSE, now Barrere-Place, and who is just arrived from Paris, informs all Republican Citi· zens that he has just taken and fitted up in the Sans Cu:

lotte style, that large House, formerly called White's, in HORNE TOOKE Street, ci-devant St. James's Street, where there will be an Ordinary every day on the cheapest scale, from 12 at Noon until 11 at Night. Soup Maigre, Frogs fricafé, Garlic Broth, and other Carmagnol Soups at all hours. Shins of Beef and Ox Cheeks baked at I o'Clock, with Leek and Parsley Pies, in the Cornish style. Buttock of Beef boiled, à la mode de Paris, and roast Mutton at 2 o'Clock, with hard Dumplings and Pease Pudding. Excellent small French Wines, which are much wholesomer than heavy Portér. The Bread is made with leaven, in order to give it a fine French acidity.

TO PARENTS and GUARDIANS. THE Female Citizen HONORA GOODWILL 1. informs the Public, that she has taken a house in a healthy situation, near Hounslow, which she has fitted up for the reception of a few young Ladies, and educating them in the truest principles of pure Republicanism. Parents who choose to trust their children to her care, may be persuaded great attention will be paid to prevent their minds from being tinctured with any foolish religious superstition: Nature's laws. alone will be their

guide, and Reason and Philosophy the sole object of their daily worship. Such being the outlines of the plan, The hopes she may promise that the young persons entrusted to her care, will in a very short time acquire that Republican energy, so preferable to the filly timidity, which was one of the female characteristics during the reign of despotism.

BRITISH NATIONAL CONVENTION

SITTING OF THE gth of JUNE.

PRESIDENT CITIZEN TELWELL. President" It is my duty, Citizen Legislators, to lay before you some letters of importance, which I have received this day; you will there see to what a height the public spirit has arrived, and the astonishing progress which our regeneration has made in every part of Great Britain." The Secretary then read: “CITIZEN PRESIDENT,

Nottingham, June 8. “I am this moment arrived from a patriotic expe. dition, the success of which has filled the minds of all the friends of the people with joy and exultation.

« Too long has the soil of Nottinghamshire groaned under the oppressive weight of four immense edifices, and its humble inhabitants been insulted by their disa gusting magnificence. Welbeck, Thoreshy, Clumber, and Worklop, could no longer be permitted to exist in the land of equality. A band of chosen Sans Culottes proceeded from Nottingham, and, with an energy worthy of the confidence placed in them, passed the plane of the revolution over these ostentatious and useless manfions. The flames did the rest.

« I send to the Convention, as a patriotic gift, all the plate of the ci-devant proprietors, that could be preserved in the general coufusion. “D*NN*N,

“Mayor of Nottingham.”
