Conolly, on the 30th of March, read to the Militia, assembled at Fort Pitt, Letters from Lord Dunmore, approving his conduct, and promising him assistance. The men were assembled in obedience to Lord Dunmore's positive orders, to hear the Letters read.

Letter from New-York to a Gentleman in London. General Gage hissed at a publick dinner in Boston, for giving Governour Hutchinson as a toast. Respect shown to General Gage on his landing, all hypocrisy. The Presbyterian Junto, or self constituted Committee of Sons of Liberty of New-York, who have stood ever since the Stamp Act, offered the assistance of this City to Boston, in resisting the Parliament, in consequence of this Letter the gentlemen of property met and formed the new Committee of Fifty. There is little doubt but all will be quiet in the Colonies in a short time, the most bitter pill will be the acknowledgement of the right of Taxation in the Parliament. The Presbyterians are to blame for all the violent American Proceedings. The Government at home, can only rely upon the professors of the Church of England. The Ministry have only to put an entire stop to smuggling, and make an example of some of the factious ringleaders in every principal city, then America will give but little trouble (Note).

The King of Great Britain is our rightful Sovereign, it is our duty to support his Crown and dignity. 2. All Acts of Parliament for taxing the Colonies, unjust and unconstitutional, particularly the Boston Port Act. 3. Enforcing the Taxation in the Colonies, the true motive and main design of that Act. 4. It is the duty of all the Colonies to assist any one so oppressed. 5. The meeting of the proposed Congress the most prudent measure in this alarming crisis. 6. It is premature for one Colony now to resolve what ought to be done by the Congress, who should be left free to decide on what they think best. 7. Nothing but dire necessity can justify the Colonies in uniting on any measure that may injure our brethren in Great Britain. 8. If Non-Importation Agreement should be adopted, it ought to be general, and faithfully observed. 9. The Delegates to Congress should be so chosen as to pledge themselves for the good conduct of the People they represent. [1774-07-19] New-York, Committee of Correspondence.

On the Resolutions and the nomination of the Delegates Resolutions adopted by the Committee: 1. The King of Great Britain is our rightful Sovereign, it is our duty to support his Crown and dignity. 2. All Acts of Parliament for taxing the Colonies, unjust and unconstitutional, particularly the Boston Port Act. 3. Enforcing the Taxation in the Colonies, the true motive and main design of that Act. 4. It is the duty of all the Colonies to assist any one so oppressed. 5. The meeting of the proposed Congress the most prudent measure in this alarming crisis. 6. It is premature for one Colony now to resolve what ought to be done by the Congress, who should be left free to decide on what they think best. 7. Nothing but dire necessity can justify the Colonies in uniting on any measure that may injure our brethren in Great Britain. 8. If Non-Importation Agreement should be adopted, it ought to be general, and faithfully observed. 9. The Delegates to Congress should be so chosen as to pledge themselves for the good conduct of the People they represent. [1774-07-19] New-York, Committee of Correspondence.

Letter from Governour Gage to the Earl of Dartmouth. Merchants have not repeated their attempts to comply with the Port Bill, with the spirit he hoped for.
