[Entered at Stationerg Hall.]
THE dreadful events, which seemed to be
the consequence of assembling so vast a
multitude in St. George’s-fields, to attend Lord George Gordon, on the day he presented the petition to the House of Commons, are, it is presumed, sufficiently known to every man in the kingdom, otherwise it would have been thought necessary to have given a detail of those, unhappy disturbances, previous to the following account of Lord Gordon's trial, that the reader inight have the subject entire before him, and perceive on what motives government have acted. Should any person, however, wish to have the whole in review, a circumstantial narration of the devastations committed in the cities of London and Westminster, from the 2d to the roth of June laft, together with some Anecdotes of the Life of Lord George Gordon, may be seen in “ Vincent's Plain and Succinct Narrative of the late Riots ;" in which the Protestant Petition, the Thunderer, and other infiammatory and curious hand-bills, are contained.
