[ N ° . 1 9 2 .] AJ L D E N G L A N D having lately encreafed in the Sale, encourages the Gentlemen concerned, to give it, for the V y future, better Paper j and, in order to make Room for other Advertifements, ( which, at a moderate Length, will be infer ted at 2 s. 6 d. each) the Medicinal Advertifements Jh all be, occafionally, confined to the lajl Page. Having not been able to fupply the great Demands made for the two laft Papers in Time, the. firft ( of the loth ult.) has been pirated, andimpos'd upon the Town for 6 d. each, under the feign'd Title of The Comparifon between Orator H. and Orator P. We have therefore, to oblige the Public, reprinted the faid Papers ; the firfl • for this Day's Entertainment, and the other to be fold at the ufual Price. Pro Rege Lege femper. D O N ' T propofe to retail out the TranfaClions of rny famous Britifh Society in a regular hiltorical Manner, but only as they occur to my Mind, and ftrike my Fancy, agreeable to the Humour I may happen to be in. In the corrupt Times and Declenfion of the Society, Two Perfons, furnifh'd pretty equally with an Exuberance of Effrontery, were dignify'd by the Multitude with the diftinguifhed Appellations of Orator Bronfe and Orator Bronfo: Whether they deriv'd their Names from their refpeCtive Families, or from talents more peculiar to themfelves than others, does not appear in my Manufcript; but the latter feems molt probable. They flourished' at the fame Time, tha' in different Situations. Bronfe was the degenerate Son of a good, honeft, well- meaning Father j of a bold, enterprizing Difpofition, and molt obflroperoufly noify aud facetious over a Cup; by Profeffion a Druid, by Practice an afteCtedDiffenter to the utmolf Extent of AffeCtation of diffenting, lo as to have^ ried andquarter'd the whole Circ'e ot Religions, and to fhelrer himfelf at laft in Svperjiition. B'oufo was the legitimate Defendant of an Afialic Renagfide, and like him h. » d a peculiar Genius for Plunder and Diffention : In his Coat of Arms he bore a Boat/ wain's Whittle in a Swabber s Hand, and was a fullen, gloomy, unamiable Character. Their Stories are fo interwoven as to become infeparable : Bronfe, by an early Mifapplication of his Time, and a boilterous Exercife of uncommon Talents among Publicans and Sinners, fell into fuch Difrepute as to be rujlicated by the learned Londono to his Cure, which, rather than obey and quit his riotous Excefles, he abdicated. Vindictive in his Temper, and profligate in his Manners, he fet up a public Stage in the Shambles, mounted it, and hung up the fhamelefs Flag of ' Defiance againft the Law, againft Virtue and Decency, while he impioufly mock'd his God, and ridicul'd the Religion of his Country, together with the whole DtvidicalOrder. He drew the Dregs of the Multitude after him by his Ribaldry, and cracking obicCne Jokes, like a Jack Pudding in Bartholomew Fair, at the fameTime that he was clad in the venerable Veltments of the facred Order, and with the Volume of Salvation in his Hand ; while his dirty Auditory, crying Smoke the Parfon, rung Peals of Marrow- Bonts and Cleaners to their Orator's Praife. In this odd Manner he proceeded, unmolelled by the Law and the Magiflrate, which drew upon him the Envy of Bronfo, who was refolv'd to rival him, and fet up for Fame in the General Court, where he had the Honour to be the lawful Reprefentative of the Proprietors of an old < iecay'd FarmTIoufe, two ruinated Foundations, a complete Hogftye, a Broken Sheepfold, and a Henroolt; Bronfo % laudable EleCtors! Streighten'd in his Circumftances, he came up to the General Court, bent to improve them at any Rate, and fo found Means to jnfinuate himfelf with the antiquated Edentula Aurea, who had corruptly acquir'd an jmmenfe Fortune from the Society, by abufing the Credulity of a generous Milhefs, and facrificing the Honour of her Lord to mercenary Views of Bargain and Sale. Bronfo, obferving ( he affeftea to reward Patriotifm in a high Character who really was in the Court of Directors what Btortfo feenid to be in the General Court, tnought fit to affeCt in his Turn ; and perceiving Edeutula" s Favour to the Gppofition, proceeded more from an implacable Diflike ( lie had conceiv'd againft the Virtues of the governing Family, than from any Love fhe had to her Country, refolv'd to improve it to his own Advantage ; and fo took all Opportunities in his InveCtives agaii. lt Corruption, Placemen, and Penfioners, not to forget the Governor. The Golden Dame became pleas'd witn his Henleian Periods, which the made him oft repeat and atl by her Bed- Side, where he paid very affiduous Court and Attendance, and frequently ftoop'd fo low as even to affile in the meaneit Offices of an officious Kane. This gain'd fo much upon her, that fhe left him a very confiderable Legacy, for ferving his Country fo well, but with this private Article annex'd, That he was to accept of no Pojl under the Governor, hut to continue his Rancour at all Events, and thro' all Administrations, againft him forever. And thus, by a Diffimulatkm as profound as that of Aurenzebe's, he robb'd one of the moil amiable Members of the Court of DireSors of Part of that Fortune which ought to have defcended to him. Edentula died, the Times chang'd, and Bronfo along witji them, who, forgetting her Injunction, made his Court to the new Sub- Governor for a Poll, who, difdaining the corruptand wicked Courfes of Leviathan, his Predeceffor, vvas determined to found his Adminiltration in Virtue : This in no wife correfponding with the Views of Bronfo, he had the Meannefs to deprecate for his InveCtives with thofe who had been once the Obj'eft of his Contempt; and fo enlilted himfelf in fhe Service of Leviathans wretched Remains, who were underhand forming a Party to reinftate his corrupt Meafures, foas to juftily him and themfelves. Info this Scheme, under the fpecious Pretence of Reformation and a Coalition of Parties, they drew in fome Malecontents, whofe Expectations were balk'd by the Sub- Governor's overi looking their little Merit, or perhaps disregarding them as not worth his Attention. They fought all Occafions to put their Purpofe in Execution, and fince they could not find a real ObjeCt for Clamour, they refolv'd to make one by Mifrepreientation and Calumny, and fo pitch'd upon Bronfo to found the infamous Trumpet of Sedition. The dirty Work - Suited his railing Genius well, which he perform'd fo very Leifterotifly as tho' the Manes of tire vociferous Boatfwain had infpir'd his' turbulent Mind with Matter, and his unmannerly Tongue with Language to utter it. The Sub- Govoruor, allowed by all Parries and Diftinftions of Men a5 the moftconfummate Politician of the Age, which a Series of many Years had glorioufly manifefted in a Iteady, virtuous, and well- animated Oppofition to the deltruClive Meafures of Leviathan, and his petty Inflrttments of Power; I fay, this great Man was tradue'd by Orator Bronfo as a Novice, in negotiating a Treaty, which, from his own narrow Conception, or from the Rancour of his Mind, he called dangerous to the Society; whereas it evidently appear'd to have been wifely calculated for its Good, and in the Event proved to be tiie moil ufeful that had been negotiated in the CourSe of thirty Years before ; which would have turned to the Confulion of any Perfon with left Bronze than our State- Oiator. Not content with calling the filthy Sweepings Of Blllingfgate in the Face of the" Sub- Governor', he attacked the Governor himfelf, his Family, and native Country, with fuch aProfufion of Scurrility as was never heard in the General Courrbefore! He infinuated MifcortduCt in Battle againft him, and even an Abfenceof Courage, the glorious CharaCteriliic of his younger Days and Family ! tho' it was notorious that, by the Governors Conduit alone, he had extricated the Army from fome Difficulties which a Diffention among his Generals had brought it into ; and that, by his perfonal Courage, he had led his brave Troops thro' fuperior Numbers of the Enemy, which, in oppofing his Paflage, he left countlefs gafping, or dead, upon thebloodv Field, while he purfued his Purpofe, and marched victorious to join his Allies; which the invidious Bronfo malignantly would haveiullied with the ignominious Stains of a Flight, to gratify the. Views of his coalizing Friends. As nothing could recommend him more to the Favour of the Coalition, and efpecially to his more immediate Patrons the Two Brothers, he became exceedingly carefs'd by them ; while, growing elate with his dirty Oratory, he was refolv'd to ( hew his Talents were not fo much tum'd to InveCtive but that he could play the Ambodexter, and excel in Panegyric on Occafion ; fo Signalizing one of the Two Brothers for the ObjeCt of it, he fore'd an Opportunity in the General Court to oratorize his Praife, which he did in fuch fulfome Daubings as nothing but the molt ccnfummate Affurance and abjeCt Flattery could give, and the moft extravagant Vanity and Self- Conceit receive. But nothing was fo diverting, and at the fame Time fo aftonifhing, than to hear, fomrtime after, the venal Bronfo labouring thro' the arduousTafk which his new Patrofis had impos'd upon him, and exceeded the Severity of Egyptian Tafk- Mafters: It was worfe than making Brick without Straw, as it was to make a Speech without Matter, and againft Truth and Conviction too notorious to be deny'd, in J unification of thofe very Meafures under them as he had fcurriloufly decry'd and revil'd under the laft Sub- Governor. He proceeded however with unparailel'd Effrontery, nor hefitated to give himfelf the Lie in every Particular which his Rancour had prompted him to advance before ; and perceiving one half of fhe Court was in a contemptuous Laugh, and the other in a difguflful Aftonilhment, he concluded with an audacious Appeal to his own UNLMBARRASS'D C o u N T E N A N C E . So g r e a t a D i f i t g a r d to Decency, fo infolent an Impofition on the Undemanding of the Auditory, and fo profligate a Prollitution of Confcience, fhock'd even fome ot the very Friends of Corruption itfelf, and difgufted others fo, that they abandotl'd the Patron, and defpis'd the Proftitute ! Triuruphint in the Succefs of hypocritical Fraud cn the credulous and vindictive Edentula, to the apparent Injury of her lawful Inheritors, whom he had, in a great Meafure, meanly fupplanted ! recking with the Steams of Calumny and Defamation againlt every thing that was great, good, and commendable, the Governor, his illuftrious Race, his Country and Friends, and even the Arms and martial Prowefs of his own Countrymen ! vilely doing tho dirty Bufinefs of an ill- concerted Coalition and the Enemy together ! — was this ill- manner'd Therfitesmoit cruelly obtruded, not only into the Prefencc of the jurtly offtndrd Agamemnon, but into one of the moft lucrative Poits under him in the Difpofition of Cafh; where, but a ve• y few Years before, he would not have been trufted with a petty Clerk's Place, for Fear of Temptation and the ftrong Impulle of Neceffity. My Manufcript reflefts with Concern to find the Governor, not only refus'd the Privilege in common with the mcanelt Inhabitant in the Kingdom, - of appointing his own Servant, but overpower'd by the unexampled Conduit of thofe already in his Service, to receive into it a Perfon who had made himftlf fo very difagreeable to him ; tho' he refilled their Importunity long, it was in vain, for they perflated in their Demand, and made a Poim of carrying it, fo far as firft to threaten, and then to take Advantage of a critical Time, when the Affairs of the Socitty were, by their own Mifinanagement and Ignorance, in the utmoft DiitraCtion and Diftrels, to withdraw from ins Service. I he Governor was glad of the Occafion, but furprized to fee a Sett of People fo ready to quit what they had, not long before, fought to retain in the moft deprecating Terms and abjeCt Submiffion, he commanded the k t e Sub- Governor to refume his Office, who, after giving Way to the firft Sallie^ of hit injur'd Maftir's juft Refenrnient, took an Opportunity of 1 \ rn'kr Msmatif W unveil the Miftery of their Conuucl, by reprefentirg The Unfeafonablenefs and Inconvenience, « • both to him& if and to the Society, cf changing Hands " at that Junflure, as the Bufinefs of'the Year was unpro- " vided for, and the Seafon too far advanc'd tore- conlider " it; and that, confidering the Labyrinth of Diforder and " Confufion they had involved the publick Affairs in, he " could not do them a greater Pleafure thnr. to permit them " to withdraw from their own Intricacies: Bcfides, the. *' Danger of their joining the Arms of the Infurgeuts, « ' which, as they had for their own Safety and Views " fuft'ered to rife to fo great an Height, they might, from " the fame Motive and a Defperation, contribute to their « ' final Sncscfs . And therefore wifely pray'd him to recall the Abdicated, and temporize with their Infolence till better Times ; which was accordingly done, but upon Condition however, to provide fuch a Station for Bronfo, as might never bring him into his Preface ; for which Reafon he was to be tranfported for half a Place to a Country, faid to abound with Families of his own Name Quality : But the aforementioned Poll becoming vacant they broke Terms with their Mailer, and fill'd it up with the proftituted Bronfo, whom they likewife introduc'd into the Committee of Secrecy-. Poor Bronfe perceiving himfelf outdone by the emulating Bronfi, for no ether Reafbn than that he was more modeft in his Oratory, refolved to run the fame Lengths, and attack the Governor and his Court too, and fpare them not, under Shelter of certain Puns and Conundrums, which he poured cut moft: plentifully from his Stage Bajhum; but running out beyond the Bounds of Cover, he was catched, dismounted, accufed, and tnrned over into the Iron Hands of Power ; where he became woefully convinced, that it was jnuch fafer to abufe the Governor and his Family alone, than in Conjun& ion with his Ofiicers, and that 1 nveftives utter'd within the Walls of Privilege, in Combination with the Great, are much more tolerable, than thofe delivered under the frail Authority of the Order of Druids, within the Boundaries of the Shambles. It has not yet clearlyappeared to me what became of Bronfe, though there is fomething in my Manafcript that feems to infer he was hanged at 7 ' — b » , for the very fame Thing, and by the very iarrns Men, as his Pupil Bronfo was preferred at C 1.

An Englifh Man of War will fail To- morrow, to Convoy a Number of Veffels laden with Provifions for Villa- francha, the Army being in great want thereof.— The 17th at Night an Imperial Commiffary, by the powerful means of 3000 Scudes given to the Rebels, found means to efcape from them, and to arrive here : He fays, that if the Victuallers don't get down in a few Days, the whole Army will be ftarving, by the Lofs of their Magazines. Tiie Rebels are now laid to be 3000c Men in Arms; they have taken about 3000 Germans Prifoners, be fides a large Booty, faid to be above 50,000 Scudes.— This Morning a Genoefe Family arrived, who came away the 17th in the Morning. They fay that General Botta was retired to the CaftLe of Gavi, and not to Reggio. The Rebels have fortified the Bochetta with Cannon, & c. and the People of the two Valleys have joined them. They conflrained the Doge's Brother to help to draw the Cannon, and burnt the Commiflary of the Valleys Houfe, for giving back to the Germans their Arms, after they had difarm'd them. The Nobility are in great fear, left their Rage may be turn'd againft them. The Rebels have demanded of the Senate, that all the Gaballes ihould be abolifhed, which they offer'd to comply with for two Years, but Was reje& ed ; they infill on their Demand being complied with.

Friday laft the Honourable Mr. Patrick Boy les, was admitted Lord of Council and Sellion, after having gone through the ufual. Trials, and took his Seat under the Title of Lord Shualton. On Saturday Morning 50 Tumblers, drawn by two Horfes each, were fent off the Weft, with Ammunition to to the Regiment lying at Glafgow, and Stores for the Ufe of the Garrifon of Fort William, to be fhipt at Newport Glafcow for that Place ; and to receive and carry back to the Caftle of Edinburgh, the Arms diftributed among the Weftern Militia, and thofe delivered up by the Rebels, which are all at prefent depofited in Dumbarton Caftle. Laft Night feven Carts with Baggage, belonging to the Dragoons that are to embark for Ireland, came into the Abbey from the Eaft Country. Friday a Gentleman of the Name of Frafer, lately mentioned, fet out from the Caftle here for London, attended by one of his Majefty's Meffengers, to bejr Evidence in the Trial of Lord Lovat. Edinburgh, Dec. 23. We hear that laft Week a Ship belonging to Irvine, was in her Paffage home from Dublin eaft away. All the Hands were faved, excepting two Paffengers, one of whom was Mr. Telfer of Glafcow, Watchmaker, a very ingenious Man. By a Letter from Iflay we are told, that on the 25 ult. the Jofeph and Mary of London, Henry Kerr, Mafter, about 150 Tons Burthen, bound for Bofton, was in a hard Gale of Wind, driven from her Anchor in the Sound of May on the N. W. Coaft of J u r a ; but by the Affiftance of a Gentleman in Iflay who carried Men and Boats, aud unloaded her Cargo, fhe was got a float and carried into Portfgag in Iflay.—' Several other Veflels have fufLred on that Coaft. The Endeavour, Dunbar, from Montrofe; and the Cuthbert, Whitby, from Leith, aie both fafe arrived at Newcaftle. William Service, Mafter of theSufannah, of Saltcoats, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into St. Auguftine. r—— During his Stay there, which was fix Weeks, there was fent in a Sloop, John Adams, Mafter, from Antigua for Philadelphia, with Rum and Sugar ; Charles Stewart, from New- York to North- Carolina ; and Capt. French,, from Lifhon to South- Carolina. We have Accounts from Bamff, that Companies of the Military ftationed at Strathbogie and Lenn, are very active in apprehending the outftanding Rebels lurking m that Country, and that they are bringing them down. to Bamff Prifoners every Day. Edinburgh, Dec. 25. The Poll for the E! edtiOn* Sf Magiftrates and Councilors for this City has received the Royal Approbation, whereupon Provoft Drummond had the Hononrto lifts his Majefty's Hand, and afterwards that of the Prince and Princefs of Wales, & c. He is expefted in Town every Day. Monday laft about forty- five Cart Load of Baggnge, belonging to Major- General Hamilton's Dragoons, fet out from hence for Liverpool, in order to be tranfported to Ireland, whither the Regiment is deftined. We hear that Commodore Smith, Commander in Chief of his Majerty's Ships on the Coaft of Scotland, is to fet out for London in a few Days. f j & d f £ — C O U N T R Y N E W S .

Shields, and a Mare belonging to Mr. Bradley of this Town, twelve Miles without rubbing; which was won by the farmer. Tovk, Dec. 23. To- morrow the Duke of Montagu's Horfe, quartered in this City, will be broke by General Wentworth, who comes down from London for that Purpofe , and a new Regiment of Dragoons will be raifed. We hear that all the Officers will accept of Commiffions in the faid new raifed Regiment. On Sunday laft the following Perfons who had been detained in the Caftle on Sufpicion of treafonable Practices, were difcharged by Order of his Grace the Duke of Newcaftle.

From the LONDON G A Z E T T E. Munich, Dec. 29, N. S. This Day we have receiv'd Intelligence from Italy, of the Surrender of Savona to t he Troops of the King of Sardinia, which cannot fail to be attended with great Confequences with Regard to the War in Provence, as well as the City and Territory of Genoa. Hague, Jan. 6, N. S. The Advices about Genera! Brown's Army are, that his advanced Guard was at Brignole, and it is faid that fome of his Parties had beaten up feveral Poft's of the Enemy within four Leagues of Aix, and that he had ordered the Parliament of that Town not to quit it. The Surrender of Savona is confirmed. Letters from Geneva of the 28th paft mention, that they had received the News there of the Surrender of Antibes; and from Italy that General Botta was retired to Gavi, and had been attacked at Ponte Decimo by a Body of armed Peafants; that he had left 600 Sick at Voltagio, and that they knew nothing at his Camp on the 13th, what Fate the three Regiments which he had left at Befagrto had met with.

Some Accounts inform us, that a few Days before the Infurre& ion begun at Genoa, there had bein warm Debates in the Senate, concerning the Maintenance of the Aullrian Troops; that fome of the Members almoll came to Blows, and that the Doge, feeing the Party in Oppofition to General Botta's Demands llronger by a third than his own, broke up the AiTembly without fuffering any Refolution to betaken.

That the Coach was attacked by four Footpads, and there were four Men and a little Girl in it, one of whom had a loaded Fowling- Picce; the Villains having made the Coach Hand, come all to one Door, but the Man who owned the Piece not , ' being quick enough in delivering, the Rogues went round ' to the other Door, on which the Man got out and took the Child with the Fowling- Piece, and laying the Child on the Ground, went and took Aim at the Fellow, and Ihot him through the Breaft, the Ball coming out at his Shoulder, after which he gave fuch a Blow at the fecond, as broke the Stock of his Piece, and then the Villains made off, and while the Fray lalted, the three other Men that were in the Coach got out, and ran away too, leaving the Man who fired and the Child alone.
