yesterday the GRAND PRO-
* CESSION, in honour of the Confli^
tution of thi United Statesy paraded to
and fro, and walked up and down in
this city, to the novel entertainment of
all claflea of people. The proceffion
made a very pompous^ppcarance, and
was conduced in a regular and decent
manner. It paraded at 8 o'clock, A.
M. in the fields ; at lo a falute of 13
guns was fired from the proceffion
fliip, when it began to move down
Broadway, and proceeded through
Great Ddck-ftreet, Hanover-fquarc,
Queen, Gbatham, Arundel, and Bul-
lock-ftrects, to the. parade des fetes
champetre, whe^e tvfe bullocks and a
mutton had bc^ roafted whole, for
their regale, togAer with hams, &c.
&c. Thefe werwrved upon ten ex-
tenfivc tables, which were prepared for
the purpofc, and ^which projcOTd, in
diredl angles, from one common cen

Icgillative m'agiftrates, ftrangersof dif-
tinClion, &c. who had a complete vie?/
of the ten feats ; the feats were well
canopied with c^npr^ft^^which, in fome
meafure, fcrceiied the guefts from the
rain, which unluckily fell at different
periods of the &y.

What added greatly to the beauty of
this parade, was the (hip Hamilton,
• the emb^matical flags, and the ftages.
The fhip made a fine appearance, fil
ing with flowing (hects and full fails,
down Broadway, the canvafs waves
dafhing againll her (ides, the wheels of
the carriage concealed. Some of the
flags were well executed, and others (it
is fuppofed through haftc) as badly-
and the defigns were generally ingeni
ous. The flages were of various fizcs,
and moftly very flight, infomuch that
the poor Potters were feparated from
their clay^ and no longer badpower over
it; the ftage fell! and alas ! the day
became expoled to the power of every
It was really laughable to fee the va-
riety ofphizzes on this occafion. The

Catholic Majefty’s packet; this com

ed to return, but unfortunately, on
firing five guns, the gunner wasfeized
by a fit, which obliged the commander
to apologize to the commander of the
packet; it i^faid, that this apology
was politely received.
As it redounds much to the credit
of tlie citizens, as\5Yell as honour of
the conduftors of the day, it ought
to be remarked, that there was not the
leaft outrage, or even indecency offered
to ariy individual, not with Handing 6
or 7000 people (as fupofed, fpeftatci s
included) had colle6led—and that the
whole company was difmifled at half
after five o’clock.
In the evening a very ingenious
tranfparent piece of painting,re prefen t-
ing General Wajhingtony to the life,
was exhibited by Mr. Wright in Maid-
en-Iane, which attracted the attention
and admiration of many citizens, par
ticularly the fair.
There was alfo exhibited, at the cor

of about two feet diameter, ^thirteen
ftars, ^^/? *of which were brilliant J one
