STOCKDALE, oppofite Euriinzton Houle, Piccdciiliy. 17S4 OBSERVATIONS, tHOUGH I am not a Member of Parliament, yet as an Englifiman, enjoying the bleirrogs of the Conititutioo, 1 am efferltially interefied in every rniure which can either direaly, or collaterally affee its ftability, injure ite perfeion, or contaminate its purity uninfluenced by prejudice to party, or partiality to men, , my attention has been ierioufly turned to the confideration of the different means, which have been propofed for the attain L ment of that univerfally acknowledged neceffary objee, A better gooernmmt and ma A 2 tzrrgemen f nagexeat of otr concerns in the E IzAeg.

The commercial intrrefi of the Company languiflling its capital depreciated and its adminiftrat ion i i adminifiration become a icene of jobbing, and intrigLe, inlfead of trade and indufiry 4 were circumitances which early alarmed the Public excited the atttention of the Legiflature, and called fo its interference...
