BERROW's Worcester JOURNAL. at his OFFICE in Goose- Lane, near the Cross.~ j —• tm H THURSDAY, May 6, 1756. Francfort, April 15.. The Number of Bankruptcies which we daily receive Accounts of, particularly from France, have put the Merchants assembling to our Fair in great Confusion ; and there is no Doubt but it will greatly affect us, the principal Part of the Trade of our Fairs depending on the Security, of Foreign Traders in the Credit of each other. Hertogenbosch, April 21. From Tilburg we hear, that, on the Evening of the 13th, they had a violent Storm of Lightning, by which a House was set on Eire, and, with two others adjoining, burnt to the Ground. . From Hel- mont we hear also, that the Low Countries are alarmed still with repeated Earthquakes, they having had a slight Shock on the 10th, and the Day before Yesterday a very violent one, which occasiOned an universal Surprize, tho' happily, in other RespeCts, little Damage.- Paris, April 16. A Fire has done considerable Damage at the Port of Rochefort. The new Method of preserving Butchers' Meat with- out Salt is found upon a further Trial not to answer. COUNTRY NEWS. Salisbury, April 26. Last Week one of the King's Purveyors came down here, and bought up great Quan tities of Hay all round the Neighbourhood, design'd, it is suppos'd, for the Use of a Camp, which we imagine will soon be form'd near this City. Bath, April 26. Yesterday se'nnight, in the Morning, a Press Gang broke into the House of Jacob Sparrow, of Studley Green, near Calre, while he was in Bed, in Or- der to impress him: He submitted to go with them, and began to dress himself; but on their saying they would bind him, he refused to go with them, and said he would not be bound, for that he would stab the first Man that should attempt it; but one William Watts seizing him behind, he stabb'd him to the HearT with a short Knife, of which Wound he died 0n the Spot. Sparrow is com- mitted to Hungerford Gaol. Last Monday a melancholy Accident happen'd at the House of Mrs Cottle, at Bathford, near this City, who being call'd out as she was going to Breakfast, and having put the boiling Tea Kettle in the Corner, before she re- turn'd, a young Child, whom the had left alone, at- tempting to drink out of the Spout, let the boiling Water run into its Throat, and died in great Agonies some Hours after. Admiral Boscawen was under Sail Yesterday at Three o'Clock in the Afternoon. ' Tis conjectured that Admiral Boscawen, with sixteen Ships of the Line, besides Frigates, is to relieve Admiral Hawke off Brest. It is supposed the Squadron under Commodore Keppel, which has not been heard of since its Departure, joined Admiral Byng in a certain Latitude, and went together up- the Straits, where it is not improbable they may have met with the Toulon Squadron. Information having been given to a Press- Gang of a Weaver in Spital- Fields that had been at- Sea, Part of the Gang were sent in Quest of him ; but some other Weavers coming to the Assistance of their Brother, they made a stout Resistance ; however, the Press Gang got the better of them, carried off their Man, and left two of the other Weavers for dead. A few Days fince some young Fellows, who were Ap- prentices near Tower Hill, took upon them to act the Pressi Gang ; while this was performing, a real Press- Gang came by, the Officer of which being pleased with seeing them act so well, took Care they should be employ'd to a much better Purpose in his Majesty'S Service. Yesterday the Anniversary Feast of the London Hos- at which were present several Persons of Distinction, held at Merchant Taylor's Hall, after a Sermon : hed at St. Lawrence's Church hv the f n LONDON, Thursday, APRIL 29. Wednesday his Majesly's Quarter Master General arri- ved at Southampton, and waited on the Mayor to bespeak QuarterS for 800 of the Hessian Troops. Orders were immediately given to the Constables to provide Billets; and a Guard House and Storehouse are already got ; and the Publicans are making the necessary Provisions for their Reception and Accommodation. We hear that divers Barracks will speedily be erected for the Soldiers in several Parts of the Suburbs of this City, in Case of an open War with France. It is said there will soon be a Camp on Twyford Downs, near Winchester; for which Purpose several Hundred Pounds Worth of Hay and Straw ate already purchased. According to Advices from Brussels of the 19th lnst the Garrisons of Ostend and Nieuport are to be speedily reinforced, at the Requisition of a certain Power, and about too Pieces of Battering Cannon are to be sent thi ther from Mechlin. They add, that the bad Weather has hindered the French from forming their intended Camp, and that, by all Appearances, they would not af- semble their Troops before the Beginning of next Month : In the mean Time they worked Night and Day in clean sing the Harbour of Dunkirk They write from Brest, that the Hero Man of War, of 54 Guns, and the Leopard and the Illustrious, of 60 Guns each, have sailed from thence with three Frigates, having on Board the Regiments La Serre and Royal Roussilion : The Marquis de Constans's Squadron was in the Road, waiting for the Ships from Rochefort, and others, that are to join him s and they were going to fit out another Squadron of eight Ships of the Line and four Frigates, which is to be under the Command of M. Dubois de la Motte. Some Letters from New England advise, that 6 French Men of War were arrived in the Gulph of St. Laurence, and that a Number of Forces had been landed on the Missisippi. By Letters from Port Mahon of the 2d Inst. there is Advice, that they had sent away to Barcelona all the Wives and Children of the Officers of the Garrison, not know- ing how soon they might receive a Visit from the French It is now confidently affirmed, that the Toulon Squa- dron is destined for North America, and not for Fort- Mahon, as has been artfully propagated. , I St David's, where a Collection was made for that excel- lent and useful Charity, which amounted to 1204I. 4d. By some Letters from Spalding, in Lincolnshire, we hear, that the Sea has overflowed the Country thereabouta for many Miles, by which Means some ThoUsands of Sheep have been drowned. Wednefday the zifl Inft the great Match which ' h n been some Time dependin3 bay Gelding, Cock Robin, Fifty Guineas a Side, c.. r « rying ten Stone, was run over the Course at Sarum. and won with Ease by the former, notwithstanding Robin was rode by the famous Mr. Dilly. There was a great deal of Company, and much Money won and lost. On Sunday Afternoon, about Six o'Clock, William Logan, under Sentence of Transportation in Newgate, for Healing Goods from on board a Ship in the River, found Means ( through the Assistance of his Wife, who came to see him with some others) to make his escape in Woman's Apparel, with his Fetters on. His Wife had put on two Gowns, one of which she put on her Husband, and sent him out first with the other Company, with so little Suspicion, that the People of the Gaol chucked him under the Chin as he went out, and called him a very pretty Girl. About an Hour after he was gone the Keepers missed him, and found his Wife, who had staid behind, not suspecting they would detain her } but in that she was mistaken ; for the Keepers secured her, and said she mull be transported ; which frightened the Wo- man so much, that she told them where she lived, whither the Keepers went, and after waiting an Hour, the Man knock'd at the Door in the Woman's Apparel, on which the Keepers immediately seized him, and brought him back to his old Apartment. Wednesday the Sessions began at the Old Bailey. Twen- ty three Prisoners were tried, two of which were capitally convicted, viz Charles Cane, for dealing Twenty four Pair of Silk Stockings in the Shop of Thomas Tolley; and John Burroughs, for stealing a live Bullock ih Sitiith- field. Eight were call for Transportation, and thirteen acquitted. The Trial of Capt. Ogle, for Murder, was pat off ' till next Sessions. Extract of a Letter from Mr. John Potter, to William Belchier, Esq, dated at Gombroon in Persia, December 10. 1754 OUR Officers, as well as the Ship's Company, have had repeated Illness Intermitting Fevers are very frequent here, and the Factory Gentlemen, as well as the Seamen, are liable to it. They are seldom two Months without taking the BARK, and very often take it one Month, and have a Return the next. It seizes us either at the Full or Change of the Moon. May and November are reckoned the most unhealthy Months, though I can- not say there are any healthy ones; for Guiney and Mada- gascar, bad as they are, are healthy in Companion of this Place. June, July, August, and September, are, called the Heats, and indeed they are intolerable : We are gasp- ing for Breath in the Day time, and at Night obliged to lie on the Terrass on the Top of the Factory. Were we to lie in our Apartments, we should not be able to breathe. I was seized With a Fever the Beginning of February : In April, finding no Relief by any Things that I took, and being reduced to a very weak State, I Went for Change of r » « = » « = » .— — FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS, Arriv'd the MAILS from France and Holland.

A singular Instance of Mortality, for which our physicians seem entirely at a Loss to account. Air to Assize, a Country Seat at about nine or ten Miles Distance, belonging to the Honourable Company. The Captain was so obliging as to bear me Company. We staid there a Fortnight; but finding no Benefit, and that the Fever terminated in a slow one, I resolved to try Dr JAMES'S POWDER, sold at Mr Newbery's, in St. Paul's Church Yard, London. The first Time I took Half a Paper, the next Morning a whole one, and the third Morning another: Each Time I drank plentifully of Milk and Water. It removed my Disorder, and, I thank God, I soon recover'd, and continued in Health all the Heats, I gave three Papers of the Powder to a Gen- tleman of the Factory, who had the same Complaint, and it cured him. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. Arrivd a MAIL from Holland. LISBON, March 26. THE Shock on the 11 th Instant was the most vio- lent that has been felt since the 1st of November.

Berlin, April 17. A Report prevails here that the hereditary Prince of Hesse Cassel, who is arrived in this City, being greatly dissatisfied with the Romish Religion, is desirous to renounce it, and to re- embrace the Protes tant Religion. To which End he is extremely solicitous to approve his Conduct to the Protestant Powers ol the Empire, left, by appearing so wavering a Convert, he should in the End be destitute of the Esteem of both Parties Paris, April 13. Letters from Stockholm advise, that a Conspiracy which was formed by a private Person hath been discovered by his Accomplices. He proposed to kill Baron Hopken, Count Tessin, Baron Wrede, Baron Shester, all Senators, and to secure the rest of the Senate, and change the Form of Government. A Foreign Minister was also doomed to be massacred by the Agents in this Plot, of whom the greater Part have been seized, and will receive their Deserts from the Senate. LONDON, Saturday, MaY 1 The Accounts concerning the State of Minorca are so various, that no— can be formed as to the Fate u-_. « « >— Many will have it that they coined in Change Alley, with a View to sink the Credit of our Funds, which we hope will not be in the Power of these. Stock- jobbers to effect. The Bill now depending in Par- liament, it is said, will clip their Wings, and overthrow their Bulls, Bears, & c. i. e. their Bargains for Time will be nullified. It may be depended upon, that our Officers in Minorca have sent their Families to Barcelona, and other Spanish Ports ; that a strong Boom is thrown cross the Harbour ot Port Mahon ; and that an Offer has been made General Blakeney of 1300 Seamen to reinforce his Garrison. It may likewise be depended upon that Commodore Edgecumbe took up 800 Barrels of Beef at Leghorn, and sent them to Mahon for the Use of the Garrison, which was a very seasonable Supply ; and that the General and Garrison are determin'd to dispute every Inch of Ground, and to defend that important Place in a Manner worthy of Britons. His Royal Highness the Duke's Field- Equipage is or- dered to be got ready. We hear there will be five Camps in the Counties of Wilts, Hants, Sussex, and Kent. A great Number of Tents were pitched Yesterday in St. James's Park, and other Places, to be got ready for the Officers. On Wednesday thirty six Carriages set out with Mili- tary Stores for the Use of the Camp to be form'd, as soon as the Weather will permit, in the West of England. A great Number of Horses have been bought up this Week for the Use of the Bread Waggons to be made use of in the intended Camps.

Some General Land Officers have received Orders to hold themselves in Readiness for a Journey upon the short- est Warning, with their Equipages, & c Tuesday sailed from Dunkirk three large French Fish- ing boats, fitted out by the Admiralty of that Town, which steered to the Northward. They have each 30 Sailors on board, and a Chest of Small Arms. Their Foremasts are much larger than those they usually sail With, and their Maintopmast very tort. On Thursday an Express arrived at the Admiralty- Office from Admiral Hawke. We have Advice from Sweden, that the Importation of foreign Flour is prohibited in that Country. A few Days since some Friends of a deceas'd Person in- Westminster, being invited to the Funeral as Pall- bearers, and being in a Room together, a Sharper, dress'd like an Undertaker's Man, came in and ask'd for their Hats to put the Hatbands in, and made clear off; the Cheat not being discover'd till the real Undertaker's Man came to demand the Hats. On Wednefday last a Gentleman, whose Name is said to be C , hanged himself at his Lodgings at Thorpe, in Surrey. It is reported he had been disorder'd In his 1 Senses some Time. This unhappy Affair is attended with the following Circumstances; he had been that Evening with his Friends, and came Home to his Lodgings very wet, and without his Peruke ; so that it is suppofed he had thrown himself into the River, with an Intent of drowning himself, but for that Time alter'd his Mind, before it was to late ; as he appear'd in such a Condition coming Home, the People of the House where he lodg'd, took what Care they could, that he should have no In- strument of Death in his Room as far as they could see; in particular they took away his Penknife. In the Morn ing his Landlord went to his Friends with whom he spent the Evening, to let them know what Condition he came Home in ; and in the Interim he broke a Glass Window, by which Means he Cut a Rope that held up the Tester of the Bed, with which he hanged himself upon a Hook, where he was found when his Friends came.

To the Worthy Electors of Burgesses to serve in Parliament for the Borough of Evesham. GENTLEMEN, FROM the Promises of Votes with which you ho- nour'd me on my Canvas, and the Knowledge I have of your steady Adherence to your Words, you have con- vinced me I had so great an Interest in your Affections that you would have chosen me your Representative, by a great Majority, had not your Freedom of Election been most dishonourably infringed by a shameful Violation of the most solemn Assurances, and by a Torrent of foreign Voters, unduly influenced, poured in upon you from every Quarter.

CARMAN, in St Paul's Church Yard, ( to Whom all who are inclined to favour or improve this Plan are desired to communicate their Thoughts;) and may likewise be had of the Printer and Distributors of this Journal. To the P U B L I C. THERE arc same Practices which custom and prejudice have so unluckily influenced, that to observe or neglect them is equally cen- surable. C1 he Promises made by the Undertakers of any new Design, every Man thinks himself at liberty to deride, and yet every man experts, and experts with reason, that he who solicits the Public Attention should give some account of his pre tensions. We are about to exhibit to our Countrymen a new MONTHLY COL- LECTION, to which the well deserved popularity of the first under- taking of this kind, has now made it almost necessary to prefix the name of MAGAZINE. there arc already many such perodical compilations, of which we do not envy the reception, nor shall dispute the excellence. If the nature of things would allow us to indulge our wishes, we should desire to advance our own interest without lessening. that of any other, to excite the curiosity of the vacant, rather than withdraw that which other writers have already engaged. Our design is to give the history political and literary of every month, and our pamphlets must consist, like other Coliertions, of many articles an - conncrted, and independent on each other. The chief political Object of an Englishman's attention must be the great Council of the Nation, and we shall therefore register all public Proceedings with particular care. We shall not attempt to give any regular series of debate, or to amuse our Readers with senatorial rhetoric. The speeches inserted in other papers have been long known to be fictious. We have no design to impose thus grosly on our Readers, and shall therefore give the naked arguments used in the discussion of every question, and addt when they can be obtained, tbe Names of the Speakers. As the Proceedings in Parliament are unintelligible without a Knowledge - of the facts to which they relate, and of the state of the Nations to which they extend their influence, we shall exhibit monthly a View, though con- tracted, yet distinct, of Foreign Affairs, and lay open the designs of those nations which are considered by the English either as friends or enemies. Of transactions in our own Country curiosity will demand a more par- ticular account, and we shall record every remarkable event, extraordinary casualty, uncommon performance, or striking novelty, and shall apply our care to the discovery of truth, with Very little reliance on the daily historians. The LISTS, of BIRTHS, MARRIAGES, DEATHS, AND BURIALS, will be so drawn up, that we hope very few omissions or mistakes will be found, though some must be expected, where there is neither leisure nor opportunity for minute information. It is intended that LISTS shall be given of all the officers and persons in public employment, and that all the alterations shall be noted, by which our LIST will be a kind of Court Register always complete. The literary History necessarily contains an account of the Labours of the Learned, in which, whether we shall shew much judgment or sagacity, must be left to our Reader's to determine ; we can promise only justness and candour. It is not to be experted that we can insert extensive extracts or critical Examinations of all the Writings which this age of writers may offer to our notice. A few only will deserve the distinction of criticism, and a few only will obtain it. We shall try to select the best and most important pieces, and are not without hope that We may some times influ- ence the public voice, and hasten the popularity of a valuable Work. Our regard will not be confined to Books, it will extend to all the pro- ductions of Science. Any new calculation, a commodious instrument, the discovery of any new property in nature, or any new method of bringing known properties into use or view, shall be diligently treasured up where- ever it is found. In a paper designed for general perusal, it will be necessary to dwell most up things of general entertainment. The elegant trifles of litera- ture, the wild strains of fancy, the pleasing amusements of harmless wit, shall therefore be confidered as necessary to our Collection Nor shall we omit researches into antiquity, explanations of coins or inscriptions, dis- quisitions on controverted history, conjertures on doubtful geography, or any other on theje petty works upon which learned ingenuity is sometimes employed. To these accounts of temporary transactions, and fugitive performances, we shall add some dissertations on things more permanent and stable j some enquiries into the history of Nature, which has hitherto been treated as if mankind were afraid of exhausting it. There are in our own country many things and places worthy of note that are yet little known, and every day gives opportunities- of new objurations which are made and forgotten. We hope to find means of extending and perpetuating physiological disco- veries, and with regard to this Article, and all others, in treat the assistance of curious and candid correspondents. We labour to attain as much exactness as can be experted in such variety, and shall give as much variety as can consist with reasonable exartness j for this purpose a selection has been made of men qualified for the different parts of the work, and each has the employment assigned him which be is supposed most able to discharge. This Day was Published, In Two VOLUMES, Octavo, ( Price bound 8s. ) The SECOND EDITION, with Improvements, of The General PRACTICE of PHYSICK; Extracted chiefly from the Writings of The most celebrated practical Physicians, and the Medical Essays, Tranfactions, Journals, and literary Correspon- dence of the learned Societies in Europe.
