NEW-YORK, July 1, 1776. — Last Friday, in the forenoon, was executed in a field between the Colonels McDougall and Huntington' s camp, near the Bowery Lane, (in the presence of near twenty thousand spectators,) a soldier belonging to his Excellency General Washington' s Guards, for mutiny and conspiracy; being one of those who formed, and was soon to have put in execution, that horrid plot of assassinating the Staff-Officers, blowing up the magazines, and securing the passes of the town, on the arrival of the hungry Ministerial myrmidons. It is hoped the remainder of those miscreants, now in our possession, will meet with a punishment adequate to their crimes.
