Newport [Rhode Island] September 23, 1793. “… The Office of District Attorney for this District has become vacant by the death of Mr. Channing.1 After having been confined to his house between two and three months he died last Saturday morning. I make this early communication; because the Interest of the United States may require that the vacancy should be soon filled.…”
