The London Evening- JFSISL& JGS? From TUESDAY August 19, to THURSDAY August 21 1746. Madrid, aug. 1. F the new King wins the Love and Admiration of his People, it must be confess'd that his Majefty has no greater Cares than thofe of giving them Marks of his Paternal Affec- tion. What above all renders him the Idol of his Subjects, the Manner wherein he dis- poses of vacant Employments, which he gives to Spaniards only, and to Spaniards of known Merit and Probity. In a Word, the Reign of Foreigners seem to be quite over. We talk no more of the Operations of the French in Flanders than if France was a Part of ' terra Incognita, and had no Connexion with this Monarchy. Orders are said to be dispatch'd to the Duke de Huescar, who was sent into Italy some Time before the Death of the late King to make a Diversion in the King of Sardi- nia's Dominions, that he should return immediately to Court, and resume his Post of Captain of the Guards. There is even a Talk of the speedy Return of the Infant Don Philip: But this seems to be founded only upon his Majesty's Inclination to put an End to the War in Italy, and restore the good Understanding that formerly subsisted with the King of Sardinia. As, in all Ap- pearance, the present Retgn will not be less pacific than the former was warlike, it is given out, that his Ma- jesty will have no more Disputes with the Powers of Europe; and that, with a View to the Prosperity of his People, he will cause all the Complaints of Foreign Nations to be examin'd and terminated, beginning with those of the States General.-—— Hague Gazette. Leghorn, Jug. 6. The English Men of War continue cruizing upon the Coasts of the Republick of Genoa, where, without Scruple, they make Prize of all the Vessels laden with Provisions that come in the Way ; and notwithstanding this and the great Success they have had, we reckon that we have sent thither by Sea, since the Month of May last, 200,000 Sacks of Corn at least. On the first of this Month there arriv'd Post from Bologna some Strangers, who endeavour'd to con- ceal their Quality, upon which a Report was presently spread, that it was the Infant Don Philip, and his Se- rene Highness the Duke of Modena, with their Retinue. Governor thought therefore he could run no great risque in sending a person to compliment these Princes upon their Arrival. But upon the coming of this Gen- tleman to the Post- House, these Strangers assur'd him that it was absolutely a mistake, and that as they were not entitled to, so they thought it did not become them to accept any such Marks of the Governor's Complai- sance. On the 2nd, early in the Morning, they conti- nued their Route for Genoa in four Calashes but find- ing at Viareggio, a Felucca, either station'd for that Purpose or lying by Chance, they went on board it, in order to expedite their Passage. We are since inform'd, that the principal Person amongst these Strangers was the Marquess de Mirepoix, and the rest are French Of- ficers who accompany him in his Journey. There have been several Persons, and a considerable Quantity of Baggage observed to pass this Way, and through Lucca, in there Way to Genoa, all this Week ; whence we are tempted to believe, that the Army of the Three Crowns will shortly endeavour to make their Retreat into the Territories of the Republick, in which great Magazines have been forming for several Months past. Petersburg, Aug. 2, Her Imperial Majesty has seen the Fleet from Cronssot perform a fine Exercise, with which she was extremely well satisfied. Her Impe- rial Majesty is expeCted on the 12th at Czarskazelo, a pleasure- House not far from this City. The Count de Vitzhum, Minister Plenipotentiary from the King of Poland, Elector of Saxony, is arriv'd here; but what the Nature of his Commission is, Time must inform us. We still continue to talk very positively of the March of a large Body of our Troops into Germany, but it is fear'd that this will still for some Time be re- tarded by the Indisposition of Field Marshal Lacy, who has been suddenly seiz'd with a Pleuretick Disor- der, from whence he is in great Danger. vienna, Aug. 16. The Marquess de Castiglioni, Ma- j0r General in the Army in Italy, arriv'd here about Noon, preceded by two Postmasters and twelve Posti- lions, with an Account of a great Advantage gain'd over the Army of the Three Crowns, by the Mar- quess de Botta. The Departure of General de Bernes for Berlin, is put off for a few Days, The Fate of Baron Trenk is at last determin'd. He was condemn'd by the Court that tried him, to suffer Death; but her Impe- rial Majesty has been graciously pleas'd to change that Sentence into Imprisonment for Life, in the Fortress of Kuffstern, in Tyrol, but his great Estate, consisting chiefly of Money, which was so rapidly acquir'd, is en- tirely confiscated; only the Queen has order'd, that the Demands of the Officers shall be paid, a reasonable An- nuity settled upon his Mother- in- Law, and two Flo- rins a Day allowed the Baron himself for his Subsistence. We hope still to Succeed in out Negotiations with the Circle of Franconia, tho' the Margraves of Anspach and Bareith, employ their utmost Diligence to misre- present all our Proposals. Dusseldorf, Aug. 23. The Passengers which come hi- ther from Cleves, Wesel and Brandenbourg, assure us, that the Levies in those Countries are carried on with prodigious Diligence, and that his Prussian Majesty's Officers spare neither Pains nor Money to compleat their respective Corps, but with what View, remains, as usual, an impenetrable Secret, Brussels Aug. 22. A Party of Austrian Hussars on the 19th Instant attack'd, at a little Distance from this City, a Convoy of Provisions which was sending to the Army, beat the Escort, and made on this Occasion a good Booty. Hague, Aug. 2 j. The Assembly of Ministers, propo- sed in the City of Breda, is resolv'd on. The Marquess de Pusieux will be present soon after the Earl of Sand- wich ; but the Conferences will not be open'd till after the Return of two Couriers, one from Vienna and the other from Turin, to know if the Intention of those Courts is, that Baron de Reischach and Count de Cha- vannes, their Ministers, shall be present at them. Count de Wassenaer and M. de Gilles will be present from Paris, in Quality of Ministers from the States- General, in or- der to employ the good Offices of their High Mighti- nesses, to bring Affairs to a Suspension of Arms, and the holding of a Congress in Form, either at the Hague, or perhaps at Utrecht. Utrecht Gazette. Paris, Aug. zz. The King return'd on Friday last to Versailles. It is very certain that the Prince of Conti, the Count de Clermont, and several other Persons of high Quality and Distinction, are in Disgrace. The ge- neral Opinion is, that the D'Argensons will not be able to sustain themselves long, the King seeming to enter- tain an Opinion, that they suffer'd themselves to be amus'd with Negotiations at the Court of Turin and the Hague, when it was in his Power to have gain'd such Advantages as must have procur'd honourable Terms for France in case a general Peace should have been brought about, of which there seems now to be little or no Hopes. A Courier is arriv'd this Morning from Marshal Maillebois, with Advice of an Action, in which the Army of the Three Crowns have lost at least 10,000 Men. We are not trusted with the Particulars, but from the Countenance of the great Men at Court, they are easily guess'd. The King's Return to the Army is entirely laid aside, and our Actions bare no Price. From the London Gazette. Hague, Aug. z6. We have no Advices direCtly from our Army fresher than of the 21st Instant, when both we and the French were still drawing down on each Side of the Mehaigne nearer the Meuse: But by Letters from Maestricht of the 24th ditto, we learn that Marshal Saxe had made himself Master of Huy, taken the few Sick, and what Provisions we had in that Town, and posted Detachments all along the Meuse down to Liege, where he had even demanded Admittance for some Troops, In the mean Time, the Field Train which the Austrians were expecting from the Rhine, consisting of 14 Three Pounders, and six Haubitzes, and escorted by above 1000 Recruits, has thrown itself, by forced Marches, into Maestricht. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Aug. 14. The Camp at Fort- Augustus is not as yet broke up. When the last Accounts came from that Country, Corn, Hay and all manner of Pro- visions were getting ready for the use of the Army, which, it was said, were to continue encamp'd . at that Place for some Time longer. On Friday last the Royal Irish and Handasyd's Regiments marched from Inver- ness for Forres, Nairn and Elgin; and on Saturday Ge- neral Blakeney's and Col. Batterau's Regiments broke up their Camp, and enter'd into Quarters within the Town of Inverness. From Aberdeen, that the Boats on that Coast had been all call'd in again to that Harbour; but it was ex- pected the Restraint would soon be taken off, as the Re- port upon which they were seiz'd was thought to be without Foundation. Yesterday arriv'd here from Dundee, about 27 Priso- ners, and set out this Morning for Carlisle, guarded by a Party of Col. Lee's Regiment. Among them were Lawrence Mercer, of Lethinty, and Patrick Lindsay, stiled a Captain, who was taken at the late Skirmish in the Braes of Angus, by Hamilton's Dragoons. This Forenoon John Nairn, of Greenyards, and Capt. O Brian, ( who was taken Prisoner at the Battle of Falkirk) ware remov'd from the Canongate- Jail to the Castle. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Aug. 16. We hear from Carlisle, that on Wednesday last arriv'd there the Rebels from Edinburgh, under the Care of Part of Col. Lee's Regiment, to take their Trials. And that, at the Assizes there, Valentine Clarke and his Son were condemn'd for Shop- breaking; and a Lad of fourteen Years of Age, for murdering and robbing a Boy. Valentine Clarke's Father was hang'd at Carlisle for Coining. Anne Sarah, Sarah Hawburn, Samuel Mewris, Ro- bert Gallon and John Forster, alias William Bell, men- tion'd in our last to have receiv'd Sentence of Death at the Assizes here, are repriev'd for Transportation; and John Stewart is order'd to be hang'd for Shop- breaking. Gloucester, Aug. 16. On Wednesday last the Assizes ended here, when only one Person receceiv'd Sentence of Death, viz. William Davis, alias Hooper, alias Cooper, for Horse- stealing ; but he is since repriev'd. William Phelps was order'd to be pubiickly whipp'd at Bisley, for stealing Bread and Cheese. William Flowers, charged with stealing three Mares, was ordered to be remov'd to Warwick,. Michael Laremon, condemn'd at our last Assizes, is to be transported for fourteen Years. LONDON. As the Conquest of C-- n- da seems to have been this Summer intended, at least by the N- w En— nd People, who had Hopes given them of a powerful Support from • hence in their Attempt upon that Countty, Are not the following as proper Questions now to be ask'd, as any that have lately been the SubjeCt of Enquiry ? Will it be practicable for a Fl-~ t, that has at S— h—. d or St. H- - ns, at the End of August, to lend any As- sistance in this Expedition the present Year Will the River of St, Laurence be easily navigated after that Fl— t can arrive at the Mouth of it, suppose there to be now no more ObstruCtions at Home ? Suppose ( which by the Way I imagine is to suppose an absolute Falsehood) the Attempt even barely practicable at this Season of the Year, was there any Wisdom in neglecting it so long, when Nobody Can deny but it must at least be attended with a great deal more Hazard than it would have been three or four Months ago ? Who were the Persons, or what were the Accidents, that occasion'd this strange Disappointment and Delay ? Can any Thing be charged upon Apprehensions from the Brest Squadron, after it has been so long sail'd, and is now known, or with great Probability believ'd, to be station'd for the Protection of that very Country, if not for the Annoyance of our late Acquisition ? Is it kindly using the People of our Colonies, after all the Hazard and Expence they last Year put themselves t0, and the Advantages they procured for the whole British Empire, to let them plunge this Year into new and greater Charges, without any human Probability of Suc- ceeding in their Design thro' Neglect here? His Excellency the Earl of Holderness, Embassador to the Republick of Venice, is arriv'd in Holland, where he will stay a short time, and then embark for for England. We hear that Sir Thomas Robinson, Bart, is recall'd from Barbadoes, of which Island he has been some Years Governor, and that his Majesty will shortly appoint an- other in his room. A few Days since the Rev. Mr. Murray, Brother to the Lord Elibank, was married at Oxford Chapel, to Miss St. Hypolite, Daughter of General St. Hypolite, a beautiful yeung Lady, with a very considerable Fortune, A few Days since Sir Henry Mackworth, Bart, was married to the Right Hon, Lady Anne Hamilton at Newington Church in Surrey, by the Rev. Mr. Mott, ReCtor of that Parish. We have Advice from Cape Breton, by the last Ship arriv'd from New England, of the Death of the Hon. Col. Shurbell Gorham, in the 60th Year of his Age, He was a Representative, and afterwards of the Council in the Province of the Massachusetts for near 50 Years, a High Sheriff for the County of Barnstable, many Years one of the Judges of the Court, and a Colonel of a Regiment of Militia ' till his Death. He was in the Expedition against Port Royal and New Anapolis in the Reign of Queen Anne, was Colonel of the Regiment call'd the Whale- Boat Regiment, employ'd the last Year at the taking of Cape Breton, Last Monday Morning the Rev. Mr. Abbot, Master of Magdalen College in the University of Cambridge was found dead in his Bed: He was very well the Day before, and went to Bed seemingly in good Health, Yesterday six Months Off- Reckonings was issued out at the Pay- Office, Whitehall, to his Majesty's Guards, Garrisons and Land Forces, in Great Britain, Minorca, Gibraltar and the Plantations, from the 25th of June to the 24th of December, 1745, both Days inclusive, Yesterday, at a Court of Directors of the India Com- pany, they unanimously came to a Resolution to take up Ships for the Year ensuing for the several Parts of India, ON or before the ; d of September next. We hear that the Subscribers to the Surrey and Hert- fordshire Associations, are resolv'd to apply a Part, or the whole, of the Money unexpended, for the Relief of the poor Sufferers by the Death of Cattle, in the late contagious Distemper. Letters from Stockholm say, that the French and Scotch Officers, which have been under Arrest in Nor- way, are arriv'd there, and will soon depart for france, under a Passport of the Marquess de Laumerie, M. de Chavannes, his Sardinian Majesty's Minister to the States General, when he deliver'd to them the Account of the late Victory in Italy, complain'd of the false Reports which had been so affectedly spread, of his Master's Inclinations make a separate Treaty with the House of Bourbon, declaring that those who spread such Reports must be very wicked People. We are told from Heidelberg, that there seems some Coldness between the Palatine and Bavarian Courts, on Account of the latter having contracted to send some of her Troops into the Service of the Maritime Powers,, The Elector Palatine, it is added, has refused the short Passage of them thro' his Dominions, To the Account of the Rebel Lords may be added the following Particulars : That when Lord Kilmarnock was come to the House on Tower- Hill, he gave a Paper to Mr. Forster, and desired him to read it to the Sheriff, which he accordingly did : He therein declar'd his deep Sense of the Greatness of his Crime, and his hearty- Sorrow for it. Lord Kilmarnock spoke to the Execu- tioner when kneeling at the Block, on seeing him time- rous, and desired him not to be afraid, but do his Duty, for that it was not his Fault but his own, that had brought himself to that Death, by rebelling against his King and Country. That Lord Balmerino at first ex- pressed Surprize at the great Number of People present; That the Bays round the Scaffold was turn'd up before the Execution, that the Spectators might have a fair View.

HOOP Petti Coats, QUA- KERS, Unfortunate Women, OLD MAIDS, The Travelling SHILLING, & c, All which so very Remarkable Articles, makes it a Ball, very well Worth Any One's Asking for The Royal BEAUTIFYING FLUID. SO highly esteem'd by Ladies of Distinc- tion and the finest Women in Europe, has for several Years stood the Test against many vain Endeavours to imitate its now allow'd superior excellency to all other Things. For it gives an inexpressible fine Air to the Features of the Face on the Spot, and a surprising Handsomness to the Neck and Hands, which it makes exceedingly smooth, fine and delicately white. it takes away all disagreeable Redness, Spots, Pimples, Heats, Roughness, Morphew, Worms in the Face, Marks of the Small Pox, Sun burn, or any other Discolouring, removes all Wrinkles, making the Skin become incomparably fine, clear, plump, soft, and beautifully fair, to Admiration. It causes sparkling Life, Spirit, and junvenile Bloom to reign in every Feature, and yet is nothing 0f Paint, but far cxcceds it, by bringing the Skin, whether of the Face, Neck, or Hands, and tho' brown, red, or rough, to a natural, youthful Fairness, Smoothness, and Delicacy, which Paint only faintly imitates; neither is this ROYAL BEAUTIFYER. prepared from the least Particle Mer- cury, or any Thing Metalline, but is so harmless it may be given inwardly even to children It has also a pleasant Scent, will not soil the finest lawn, is very agreeable to use, and can be had only at Mr Radford's Toyshop at the Rose and Crown against St. Clement's Church- yard in the Strand, it 3 s. c d. a Bottle, with Directions , and no where else in England. The incomparable Powder for cleaning the Teeth, '- which needs no artificial Means to recommend it to the World, its own Virtues being suffcient , nor did we ever seek for a Patent, for, as they say, good Wine needs no Bush. IT has given surprising Satisfaction to most of the Nobility and Gentry in england near 40 Years, that it has been publish'd, and Vast Quantities of it still, continue to be sold. It is sold only at Mrs. Wharton's Toyshop, the Bluecoat Boy, near the Royal- exchange , in cOrnhill ; and at Mrs. Markham's Toyshop, the Seven Stars, against St. Dunstan's Church in Fleet- street, and no where else in england, at 1 s, each box, or 1 j to the Dozen. At once using it makes the Teeth as white as Ivory, tho ever so black or yellow before, and effectually preserves them from rotting or decaying, continuing them sound to exceeding; old Age It wonderfully cures the Scurvy in the Gums, prevents Rheum or Defluxion, Kills Worms at the Roots of the Teeth, and thereby hinders the Tooth ach. It admirably fastens loose Teeth, being a neat and cleanly Medicine, of a pleasant and grateful Scent, and in Vertue far cxcceds any Thing ever yet found out. The so much esteem'd LIP- SALVE, Is sold at the same Places at is. each Box, which in two or three Hours Time heals them, tho' never so rough or chopt; makes them delicately soft and smooth, giving them a becoming rubicund Colour; the Fragrancy of its Odour also renders the Breath fine and sweet, and it may be eaten for its Safety. LONDON William Earl of Kilmarnock was the fourth Earl of that Name : He descended from an antient, honourable, and loyal Family in Scotland, which, instead of exte- nuating, aggravated his Crime ; but what drove him to take Share in the late desperate Rebellion, or when he first became a Party in it, is uncertain. In his Speech at the Bar of the House of Lords, he declares he did not join the Pretender till after the Battle of Preston Pans; but as that whole Performance has been censar'd, as being void of Truth in many Passages, so there may be some Uncertainty in this. Supposing it to be true, some say he did not do it then, but by the Instigation of his Countess, who being a Roman Catholick, natu- rally became a Partizan for the Pretender ; but as he has in many Instances given Indications of having little Respect for his Lady, we are apter to believe the Despe- rateness of his Fortune engag'd him in that rash At- tempt. He has left several Children, particularly three Sons, one of whom was in the Rebellion with his Fa- ther, and another in the victorious Army at Culloden, commanded by his Royal Highness the Duke of Cum- berland. This Earl lost his Father when he was very young, discover'd betimes a Genius not unequal to his Birth but as he grew up, instead of applying himself to the dry Amusements of the Study, he launch'd out into the World in pursuit of Pleasures, which were more expensive than his Fortune could support, and by this Means considerably reduced an Estate that devolv'd to him, not without some Incumbrances; which, from the most probable Conjecture, was the true Reason of his taking up Arms against the King. His Person was tall and graceful, his Countenance mild, and his Com- plexion pale ; and he had Abilities, if they had been properly applied, which might have render'd him ca- pable of bringing an Increase of Honour to his Family, instead of Ruin and Disgrace. Arthur Lord Balmerino, is a Defendant of an an- tient Scotch family, from a German Stock, and second Son of the third Lord Balmerino. How, or when he join'd the Rebels, to us is utterly a Secret; and though he seems to have had a considerable Command, yet we scarce heard any Thing of him ' till he was made a Pri- soner. If we were to draw his Character, abstracted from the Consideration of his being an Enemy to the present happy Government, we should call him a blunt resolute Man, who would, if his Principles had not been tainted with Jacobitism, have appear'd honest in the Eyes of those who love Sincerity; but he was not so happy as to be loyal. His Person was very plain, his Shape clumsy, but his Make strong, and had no Marks about him of the polite Gentleman, though his seeming Sincerity recompens'd all those Defects. He was illite- rate in respect of his Birth, but rather from a total Want of Application to Letters than Want of Ability. Seve- ral quaint Stories are related concerning him, which seem to be the Growth of wanton and fertile Imagina- tions, Which is not at all to be wonder'd at, in Times that afford so much Matter for Invention as the present. He has left a Lady behind him, but whether he has left any Children or no, we have not been able to dis- cover. It was indeed reported, that he had ten Children, but as that has been contradicted since by other Reports, it is impossible for us to adjust that Matter. When he came upon the Scaffold, he behav'd ( as hath been hinted before) with blameable Intrepidity, though not with Indecency, where the Axe put an End to his Life. ' The Scaffolding on which the two Lords were be- headed, has been taken away by some of the Populace,' which the Sheriffs having Information of, several Persons, two of whom were Soldiers, who had carry'd off Part of it, were detected and secur'd, and since have confess'd, that a Builder, not far from the Tower, had purchas'd the same. Late last Monday Night a further Reprieve came from his Grace the Duke of Newcastle's Office to the New Gaol in Southwark, for the following Rebel Officers, viz. John Saunderson, Thomas Furnivall, James Gadd, Wiiliam Brettagh, Alexander Abernethey, Christopher Taylor, James Wilding, and Charles Deacon. The Re- prieve is for three Weeks only ; and if they had not obtained it, they would have suffer'd Death Yesterday. On Tuesday Morning the Dead Warrant came from the Sheriff of Surrey's Office to the New Gaol, for the Execution of the four following Scots Rebels ( who were all Officers in the young Pretender's Army) To- morrow at Kenningion- Common, viz. Alexander Mac Grouther, Donald Mac Donald, James Nicholson, and Walter Ogilvie. They will be drawn to the Place of Execution on two Sledges, guarded by a Party of Horse and Foot Soldiers, and will be executed in the same Manner as the Manchester Rebels were. Yesterday 26 Scotch Rebels were brought to Town, from Sheerness and Tilbury Fort, under the Care of Mr. Vincent and another of his Majesty's Messengers, and lodg'd at the Plaisterer's Arms in St. Margaret's- Lane, Westminster, and a strong Guard of Soldiers placed over them : They are brought up as Evidences for the King. Several of them are young, some have Plaids on, others in Waistcoats and Bonnets, and on the whole make a most despicable and wretched Figure. Four of the Chiefs are at the House of Mr. Vincent, in St. Martin's- Lane. Tuesday Mr. John Lewis, being recover'd beyond Expectation of the several Wounds he receiv'd, upwards of a Month ago, near his House at Hendon, from five Highwaymen that assaulted him upon the King's High- way there, appear'd at Sir Thomas De Veil's, where he had a View of three of them, swore to them, and was bound over to prosecute at the next approaching Ses- sions; he also swore to some of the Goods, taken from him at that Time, found upon them. Yesterday one of the Chelsea Coachmen was brought before Sir Thomas De Veil, for wilfully and maliciously assaulting and overturning two Gentlemen, with a Child of five Years of Age, in a One Horse Chair on the King's Highway, to the great Hazard of their Lives, bruising them very severely, especially the Child, who is extremely bad from the Hurt he got in the Fall. The Coachman is bound over to the next General Ses- sions at Hick's- Hall, there to answer this great Offence. thE fact was committed on Monday Evening near Cranford Bridge on Hounslow- Heath, in the Sight of a Person coming by in another Chair, who seeing Help at hand to take care of the People that were hurt, imme- diately drove after the Coachman to HounslOw, where he soon found Means to discover him. The Glasgow Journal of the 11th Instant says, that Capt. Lorimer arriv'd there, and gave the Description of a French Cutter he saw at Bergen she was a Sloop rigg'd, about 50 Tons Burthen, with her Main- malt hanging aft, Pink stern'd, had three Carriage Guns on each Side, and Swivels all round, with about 30 Men j and it was said that the young Pretender and Cameron of Lochiel were on board. Upon hearing of this Ru- mour, Alexander Wallace, Esq; the British Consul, ap- ply'd to the Governor to have her search'd, which was refus'd ; upon this the Consul protested. ' Tis added, that according to the Description given by a Gentleman arriv'd at Glafgow, it is the same Cutter that took on board at St. Uist the Beginning of July Sullivan and 0 Neil. A French Privateer of 10 Guns and 144 Men is carry'd into Plymouth by the Portland's Prize, Inver- ness, and Dispatch Sloop: She was taken the 15th In- stant off Ushant. A French Ship bound from Nantz to the Coast of Guinea, is taken by the Shoreham Man of War, Capt. Osborne, and carry'd into Lisbon. She mounts 22Guns, and has a rich Cargoe on board. The Jenny, Davidson, from Bristol, is arriv'd at Gibraltar. This Ship was taken fome Time ago by the French, and retaken by a Bristol Privateer ; and on her present Voyage was attack'd in the Gut of Gibraltar by four small Spanish Privateers, whom, after a smart En- gagement, she oblig'd to sheer off _ The Loyal Jane, Rains, from Riga to Plymouth, is taken by the French, and carried into Cherburgh. Extract of a Letter from Dover, Aug. 17. ' The Carlisle Privateer, Capt. Owen, Commander, has brought in the Orange Tree of Amsterdam, Capt, David Magnus, from Rochelle, with Brandy and Su- gar pretended for Amfterdam. Capt. Owen took this Vessel off Bologne, and when he boarded her, told the Dutch Captain that he belong'd to Bologne, and that he must take Care of the English Privateers; upon which the Dutch Captain, believing Capt. Owen be- long'd to Bologne, desir'd he would take Care of his secreted Papers, and thereupon the Villainy appear'd, that the Ship was really bound to Bologne.' From the London Gazette.

Blickling, HOBART. Aug. 18, 1745. General Post- Office, London, August 4, 1746. WHEREAS the Post Boy, bringing the West Mail from Hartford Bridge to Stains, was, this Morning, between the Hours of Twelve and One, attack'd on the High- way, near a Place call'd the Hither Black- Water, in the County of Surrey, by a single Highwayman, who carried off the following bags, viz.
