1337. COCKADES, Politics and.—

of the young men, who addressed the President
[John Adams] on Monday, mounted the black
(or English) cockade. The next day, numbers
of the people appeared with the tricolored (or
French) cockade. Yesterday being the fast day,
the black cockade again appeared, on which the
tricolor also showed itself. A fray ensued, the
light horse were called in, and the city [Philadelphia] was so filled with confusion, from
about 6 to 10 o'clock last night, that it was
dangerous going out.—
