The Fourth

P. S. Since the above was in type, we learn with pain that Capt. Charles Burnett, harbor master of this city, lost na eye by the explosion of a serpent, as he was passing along the street. This is a species of fire works which should not, on any account, be tolerated and we hope before another celebration that they will be prohibited under a heavy penalty.
