By the Committee, of BALTIMORE County:

Mr˙ Hercules Courtney, as agent for Captain William Stone, has in his possession eleven cannon of the following sizes, according to the best information we can obtain, viz: Two of twelve pounds, six of nine pounds, and three of four pounds; all of which will be wanted for the defence of Baltimore Town, if they are found good. This Committee directed carriages to be made to suit these guns, and on the late alarm removed and mounted them at Fell' s Point, where they now remain, ready to be proved by such person as the honourable Council of Safety may appoint.
