I attended Burlington Meet-

; and in the afternoon set out in the stage for
Allentown. My companion in the stage was a
young man lately returned from St. Domingo. He
had resided several years there, and had been wit-
ness to many atrocious cruelties which had been
perpetrated on that island, both by the white and
black people; and which are too shocking to re-
late. In making a comparison between the whites
and blacks, as to the faculties of the mind, he
declared that he could perceive no difference,
where the advantages of education had been equal.

I lodged last night at Al-

, and came this day to Amboy; and, after
dinner, went on board the packet for New-York,
where I arrived safe this evening. I have often
admired the prospects around Amboy, as well as
those from the Sea, throughout the whole passage
to New-York, particularly in passing Staten and
Long Islands, and when the eye catches a first view
of that city. The whole is indeed extremely beau-
tiful, but not easily described.
