L0NDON : From SATURDAY, June 26, to TUISDAY, June 29, 1756, The Evening t Advertiser,- No 364. our last " arrived a Mail from Holland. Brussels, June 22. WE are informed, that the last adviccs re- ceived by the court of France from Mi- norca of the 6th instant, and that their contents are kept very secret: All the French letters, however, agree that there is a great misunderstanding be- tween the Duke de Richelieu and the general officers of his army, and that they had been obliged to change their attack again St. Philip's castle, which is defended with great skill and bravery. Petersburg, June 4. Sir Charles Hanbury Williams is transacting an affair of great importance, on which a little time will throw more light than the boldest conjec- tures at present. Berlin. June 19. It is rumoured, that an important negociation is on the point of being concluded. Brunswick. J" une 17. Private letters from Hanover advise, that an alliance is concluded between the King of Great Britain Elector . of Hanover, the Empress of Russia, and the King of Prussia, in order to strengthen the convention for securing the neutrality cf the Em- pire. Toulon, June. 6. Yesterday M, de Willebranche, the Commissioner of the Navy at this place, received an ex- press from court with orders immediately to fit out for Hector of 74 gun, le Vaillant of 64 l'Heureux or 64 l'Achille of 64. and l'Oriflamme of 54. , Ac- cordingly. the artificers will begin upon them to morrow, and work withouy intermission on Sundays and holidays till they be finished. Toulo- n, June 6. Orders are given to use the utmost expedition in fitting out the five ships that are to reinforce M de la. Galissoniere, on which account the people work both days and Sundays. ' All the sailors that can be found are kept to man these ships as soon as they are ready. Marseilles, June 10. One of the principal merchants of this city has failed for 480,000 livres and there Is rea- son to fear that this will be a prelude to othe- r bankrupt- cies, these catastrophes being the natural concequenCe of to many captures made by the English. Lyons, June 11. According to our adviccs, dated the 3d inst, relating to the siege of fort St. Philip, our batte- ries have been considerably augmented, and our fire greatly increased, and will be much more so when we receive the expected artillery from Toulon. The firing from the besieged begins to slacken We have had only fourteen men killed,' and, eighty wounded including three officers, since the 27th of May 5 but miners advance slowly, occasioned by the difficulties they meet with in carrying on their work thrO' rocks underground, and they are at least . twenty four fathoms distant from the Co ver'd way of the Queen's Lunette. Extract of a letter from Minorca dated May 31. ' It will not always, hold, that the fight of an object lessens the idea one had formed of it from report. The nearer we approach to Fort St. Philip, the higher is our opinion of its strength and if its reduction is, neverthe- less, probable, we are forced to acknowledge that it is not so near as we hoped. Figure to yourself a castle, which, without resembling any other fortress in Europe, is equal to the strongest; its situation the Most advanta- geous that nature could furnish, provided with immense works built with the utmost skill of the ablest engineers, and with a solidity worthy of the old Romans; two hun- dred pieces of cannon on three stories, and well served ; a garrison of about 3000 men, including 4 or 500 la- bourers, who are rather more useful than soldiers; pro- visions and stores in abundance: these are the things within the place with which we have to struggle. • Without it there are obstacles, rather more discou- raging, if any thing could discourage us: the ground the most improper that can be imagined for erecting bat- teries or making entrenChments; every where solid rock, with heaps of stones at the distance of every twenty paces,' which instead of being of use to us against the be- sieged, aid them in wounding our troops. The earth we bring from a distance being all gravelly, we are forced to sift it and what comeS thro' the sieve being perfect dust, we must wet it before we can use it, for otherwise a ball would overturn she whole. The village of St. Philip, which is opposite to the fort, and under favour of which we imagined we could safely erect our batteries, hath ill answered our expectation: the balls and bomb's of the besieged have partly demolished it; we could not keep our artillery in it, and our men were without cover. We are at present erecting batteries behind its r.* is, , with earth which we are forced to sift and wet after bringing it from a league's distanCe ; a labour that requires all the ardour with. the zeal of our soldiers for the success of the siege and the presence of their general and princes, can inspire them. ' We want nothing to make a speedy end of the siege but a few more cannon, mortars and bombs: what we have of these will be properly employed in the mean time. We are assured, that notwithstanding the immense labour to be endured, and the numberless difficulties to be surmounted, in erecting our batterie. s, we shall, in eight days, have one battery of twenty guns, one of six, two of four, and others of three guns.. their number will be increased when we receive the cannon, mortars, bombs, balls, and powder which we expect from Toulon and Perpignan. The progress of our miners his not been so slow for some days, as it was at first. After employ- ing two weeks to make way thro' very hard rocks, they have at last found the stone soft, and now advance so fast, that they are within fifty toise's of the lunette la reine. To accelerate their labour, and spare them the trouble of carrying on their backs the stone they dig out, a kind of small carts have been made, which easily go into the mines. The works have cost us the lives of near 2oo men.' We have 150 wounded in the hospital--, most of them deeply so, and 210 down in fevers. The illness of the latter we ascribe to the bad quality of the water, which at first affected all who had delicate sto- machs; but habit seems to get the better of its bad qua- lity for the natives are healthy and robust. ' Our most considerable losses were occasioned by ; or 600 tons of wine which happened t0 be in cellars in the village of St. Philip: the love of this liquor made our soldiers brave the danger of getting at it; and the immo- derate use thereof soon making them quite forget this danger, they poured It down their throats in sight of the English and within reach of their gun's, with so little concern, that a bomb falling in the midst of five grena- diers, they called out to the besieged, that they did not think it worth their while to change their place. for such things as it was; and accordingly stirred no more than if it had been a roasted apple. To prevent such temeri- ty for the future, all the barrels that could not be brought away were ordered to be staved. * All the serious work and moving, spectacles that at- tend the siege cannot suppress French gaiety, which shews itself upon every occasion. The singular affability of the fair sex in this island greatly contributes to the amusement of our younger people, who arc highly di- verted with the contrast of the shaved crowns of the men, and the long tails in which the women wear their hair; a fashion of which they are so fond that some them wear artificial tails.' Paris, June 21. According to the last advices from the siege or Fort St. Philip the great battery began to fire the 6t! i in the evening ; in less than twelve hours it made a considerable breach in the outworks, and somewhat abate the Enemy's fire, but they renewed it the follow- ing night very briskly, and fired near 300 bombs at us; however, we had but three men killed and eight wounded. Our fleet continues cruising within sight of the harbour, and has taken an English vessel with provisions, and a packet boat from London, with letters for the governor of Fort St. Philip. Five battalions of our troops, are going to be sent to Corsica. It is reported that Admiral Byng's fleet is arrived at the isles Formentierds, near the island of Ivica. Utrecht, June 24. report that the court oF Spain was resolved to take part in the present broils was without foundation. His Catholic Majesty is firmly re- solved to observe a neutrality as far as his own glory, the interests of his crown and his subjects, and his alliances will permit. Amsterdam, " June 24 None of the Dutch vessels taken and carried into England have been yet set at liberty, and, many more are daily seized. Most of those were trading from port to port in France when they were taken. Five or six of them were laden with salt, and bound for ' the north. In a word, ' tis not thought that any one of them had contraband goods on board, it then greatly concerns the tranquility of our navigation, that certain regulations should be fixed in cases of this nature, and they religi- ously observed. The several masters of the ships detained have been at London, to represent their grievances to General Hop, Envoy Extraordinary from the States Co neral, which minister has in a proper manner, applied to the British ministry till such time he receives orders from their High Mightinesses, whom he has acquainted with the circumstances of this affair.

He had been married but six weeks, and she was a very agreeable handsome girl. Bristol, June 26 " On Saturday arrived here from Vir- ginia, the Virginia Packet, with three hundred of the French who were settled in Acadia, a great part of whom are women and children. They lay at our key waiting for orders from above, for the disposal of them, vast num- bers of the citizens flocking daily to see them, and Thurs day were removed to Guinea street, and are allowed six- pence a head per day without any deduction, which will afford them a comfortable support in their present circum- stances. Several hundred more are shortly expected. Extract of a letter from Portsmouth. June 21-. * Thursday came up the Ambuscade man of w « r, Capt. Gwynn, from a cruize, with five Dutch vessels laden with salt, bound to Havre de grace. In the afternoon arrived Rear Admiral Holbourne in the Terrible, from Admiral Boscawen's fleet.

The Catherine, Macnamara, from Merton, for Am-, sterdam; and the Elizabeth, Rund, from Honduras, for Leghorn, are taken by the French, and cairied into Toulon'. LONDON. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Admiralty Office, June 26. Extract of a letter from Admiral Byng to Mr. Cleveland, Secretary of the Ad- miralty, dated on board the Ramillies off Minorca,- May 25, 1756. " I have the pleasure to desire that you will acquaint their Lordships, that having sailed from Gibraltar the 8th, I got off Mahon the 19th, having been joined by his Majesty's ship Phoenix off Majorca two days before, when the enemy's fleet appeared to the S. E. falling little wind, it was five before I could form my line, and di- stinguish any of the enemy's motions, and not a all judge of their force more than by their numbers, which were' seventeen, and thirteen of those appeared large. They at first stood towards us in a regular line, and tacked about seven, which I judged was to endeavour to gain the wind of us in the night, so that being late, I taCKed, in order to keep the weather gage of them, as well as to make sure of the land wind: in the morning, be- ing very hazy, and not above five leagues off Cape Mola, we tacked off towards the enemy. at eleven, and at daylight had no sight of them ; but two tartanes, " with tHe French private signal being close in with the rear of our fleet, I sent the Princess Louisa to chase one, and made the signal for the Rear Admeral, who was nearest the other, to send ships to chase her. The Prin- cess Louisa, Defiance, and Captain, became at a' great distance, but the Defiance took her's, which had two Captains, two Lieutenants, and 102 private soldiers, who were sent out the day before with 600 men, on board tartans, to reinforce the French fleet on our then appear- ing off the place. The Phoenix ( on Capt. Hervey's offer prepared to serve as a fireship, but without damag- ing her as a frigate till the signal was made to prime, which she was then to scuttle her deck's, every thing else being prepared that the time and place allowed of. The enemy now began to appear, from the mast head: I Called in the cruizers, and when they had joined me, I tacked towards the enemy, and formed a line a head ; I found the French were preparing theirs to leeward, hav- ing unsuccessfully endeavoured to weather me : They were twelve large ships of the line and five frigates. As soon as I judged the rear of ours was the length of their van, we tacked altogether, and 1 immediately made the signal for the ships that led- to lead large, and for the Deptford to quit the line, that ours might become equal in number to theirs. At two I made the signal to engage, as I found it was the surest method of ordering every ship to close down on the one that fell to their lot. And here I must express my great satisfaction at the very gallant manner in which the Rear Admiral set the van the exam- ple, by instantly bearing down on the ships he was to en- gage, i with his second, and who occassioned one of the French ships to begin the engagement, which they did by raking ours as they went down : I bore right down on the' ship that lay opposite to me, and be to engage him, after having received their fire for some time on going down. The Intrepid, in the beginning, had his foremast shot away, and as that hung on foresail and backed it, he had no command of his ship, his foretack and all his braces being cut at the same time, fa drove, on the next ship and obliged that, and ships a head of me, to throw all a back :' This me to do so also for some minutes, to avoid their... on board me, though not before we had drove our,. sAry out of the line, who put before the wind, mUS^ ftr^" several shot fired at him from his own Admiral j^ sK^ i' ' not only Caused the enemy's centre to be unuac& i& Kris? Peft the Rear Admiral's diVision rather uncovered very little time. I sent and called for the ships a head of. me, to make sail On and go down on the enemy, and or • dered the Chesterfield to lye by the Intrepid, and the Deptford to supply the Intrepid's place. I found the ene- my edged away constantly ; and as they went three foot to our one, they would never permit our closing with them, but take the advantage of destroying our rigging ; for though I closed the Rear Admiral last, yet I found I could not again close the enemy, whose van were fairly drove out of their line, but their Admiral was joining them by bearing away. By this time it was past six, and the enemy's van and ours were at too great a distance to engage; I perceived fome of their ships stretching to the northward, and 1 imagined they were going to form a new line. I made the signal for the headmost ships to tack, and those that led before with the larboard tacks, to lead with the starboard, that I might, by the first, keep ( if possible) the wind of the enemy; and by the second, be between the Rear Admiral's division and the enemy, as his had suffered most, as also to cover the In- trepid, which I perceived to be in a very bad condition, an whose loss would give the ballance against us, if they attacked us the next morning, as I expected. I brought to about eight that night, to join the Intrepid and refit our ships as fast as possible. and continued so all night. The next morning we saw nothing of the enemy, tho' we were still lying to Mahon was N. N W. about ten or eleven leagues. I sent cruizers to look out for the Intrepid and Chesterfield, who joined me the next day ; and having, from a state and condition of the squar dron brought me in, found that the Captain, Intrepid, and Defiance ( which latter had lost her Captain) were very much damaged in their mast, I thought proper, in this situation, to call a council of war, before I went again to look for he enemy. I desired the attendance ot General Stuart, Lord Effingham, Lord Robert Bertie, and Colonel Cornwallis, that I might collect their opi- nions upon the present situation, at which council not. the least contention or doubt arose, I do not send their Lordships the particulars of our losses and damage by this, as it would take me much time, and that I am wil- ling none should be lost in letting them know an event of such consequence. I dispatch this to Sir Benjamin Keene, by way of Barcelona, and am making the best of my way to Gibraltar, from which place I propose sending their Lordfhips a more particular account. " p, S. I must desire you will acquaint their Lordships, that I have appointed Capt. Hervey to the command of the Defiance, in the room of Capt. Andrews, slain in the action " 1 have just sent the defects of the ships, as I have got it made out whilst I was closing my letter."

A small cottage about a mile from that place was burnt to the ground, but no person received any hurt. On Sunday night about ten o'clock, in the storm of thunder and lightning, a large tree that has stood for many years in the yard belonging to the Coventry- cross, in Pettycoat- lane near Bishopsgate, about three feet in diameter, was snap'd short off in two places, one about six feet from the ground, the other about six feet from that ; it fell on the corners of two outhouses in the said yard, where it still remains. Notwithstanding this tree was so cut down, the lightning never entered the house, nor did any other damage. Sunday the Nancy, Devonshire, just arrived from Oporto, was burnt down to the water's edge, near the flats on this side of the Downs. This sad accident hap. pened thus: The Nancy had already had her hands pressed out of her, and there was then on board a sailor who had worked his passage home, and feeing a man of war's boat coming to press for more men, he ran down the hold or under the hatches, and took a lighted candle to see where he might best conceal himself; which having ef- fected, he forgot in his fright to extinguish the candle, and left it sticking in a parcel of cork, which took fire, and in a very little time after the ship was all in a blaze. Out of 250 pipes of wine on board, between 20 and 30 have been saved. On Sunday evening a child about three years of age, by the carelessness of its mother, was left at a window up two pair of stairs in Whitechapel, from whence it fell into the street its thigh was broke, and its body in general very much bruised. It was immediately carried to the London hospital. Yesterday one Coleman, a ticket porter at Billingsgate, hanged himself at his house in Lambeth marsh, leaving a wife and two children. Last Wednesday right Sir Thomas Worsley and his family, in a coach on the road to Dover, were attacked four miles on this side Rochester by a single highwayman, who carried off a considerable sum of money. - MARRIAGE. Yesterday the Right Hon. the Earl of Ashburnham was married to the Hon. Miss Crawley, daughter of Atn- brose Crawley, Esq an eminent ironmonger, with a for- tune of 200,0001, after the ceremony they immediately set out for Windsor. PREFERMENTS. A dispensation has passed the great seal to enable the Rev. John Watle, CI. M. Chaplain to the Dutchess of • Roxbourgh, to hold the rectory of Harlaxtam in the county and diocese of Lincoln ; together with the rec- tory 3of Gowdley, in the county of Leicester and diocese aforesaid. - DEATHS. On Sunday died at Twickenham, the Right Hon. the Lady Dowager Castlecomer, mother to the present Lord Viscount CastlecOmer, and sister to the Duke of New castle. On Monday died Dr. Andrew Didier, late physician to the Middlesex hospital'. On Thursday died at Greenwich, Robert Helton, Esq; a merchant of this city. COMMITMENTS: On Saturday last was committed to Bridewell, by jus- tice Hammond, ( for one month to hard labour) Leonard Thompson, a journeyman hatter, for suffering himself to be subsequently employed by Mr. William Motrell, be- fore he had completed the work he was first hired to ma- nufacture for Mr. Vincent Trehearn, contrary to the sta- tute ; a crime very prejudicial, to trade, and too often practised.

On the other side the Mar- quis de Harcourt, son of the Duke of that name, came to aquaint the King in his father's name, that the troops were rallied on every side, and that the victory was sure. At this very instant arrived the Count de Castellane, dispatched by Marshal Saxe to inform the King that the field of battle was recovered. In seven or eight minutes the whole English column was dispersed, General Pon- sonby, my Lord Albemarle's brother, five colonels, five captains of the guards, and a prodigious number of officers, were slain. The English repassed the hollow way betwixt Fontenoi and the redoubt in the greatest dis- order; the ground which had been taken up by their column, at well as the hollow way, was strewed with wounded and dead bodies; - LONDON. Persons who understand the sea well, hope the Admi- rals Hawke and Saunders reached Gibraltar yesterday, or will to- day 2 which will be in little more than HALF the time Admiral Byng took for the same voyage,, And if the fleet be found at Gibraltar, it is not doubled, but the new appointed Admirals will conduct it to Minorca in two, or, at farthest, three days time, notwithstanding it Came no nearer than eleven or twelve leagues after ELEVEN days sail under its late commander, It is said that the Captains Noel and Baird absolutely refused to sign the resolution for returning to Gibraltar. As it does not appear, that the fleet came within sight of the difficulties which were thought to render the land- ing of the succours impracticable: Is not every officer who signed the resolution of the council concerning it, equally blameable as if he had set his hand to a capital sentence against hundreds (— as many as may be lost in the defence of St. Philip's, for example) without the utmost certainty as to the facts alledged If this resolution was taken upon the credit of some person sent by the Ad- miral to reconnoitre, it must be supposed the Admiral knew such person, and prudently chose him as the fittest for the Service HE wanted to be performed. It is said, that at the Hague, the French Ambassador insists that Byng got the victory ; and the English Ambas- sador, that Galissoniere got it: each being so much ashamcd at the behaviour of their respective countrymen. A letter received, yesterday from Yorkshire. says, that a certain Admiral has already been hanged and burned in almost every market town in that loyal county. Several candidates are already talked of for the next general election for Westminster against him who signed the council. It is recorded of an antient general, that he used to say, " That an army of Harts with a Lion for their com- mander, was preferable to one of Lions under the direc- tion of a Hart which no doubt may as well be applied to the sea as to the land service; and tO the English tars as properly as any species of animals that ever existed. It was this day reported about Change, that a certain person now, or lately, in a very important command, sold all his property in the national funds before his leav- ing England. And it is farther said, that his relations have been at the expence of an express to him to prevent his venturing home, during the present rage of the public resentment against his conduct. We are informed by a gentleman who came from Mi- norca at the time of the French arriving there, that on General Blakeney's being informed of their landing he ordered all the cattle that could be of service, to be drove into the citade , and the rest to be shot, or drove into the sea, and it was observed, tho' the old gentleman had been very much indispofed for some time before, he ap- peared in high spirits on receiving the intelligence, and said to the officers about him, that they should now have a littie employment, and went and put up a standard, which done, said, Thou dees not come down till I am dead, or the French gone. The account, in the former part of this paper, of the tree broke down by lightening was taken from a morn- ing paper: but the truth of the fast is, An elm tree of about half a yard diameter, is broke short off in one place only. And it is very remarkable, that the part of the trunk where it is thus broken was surrounded with a sheet of lead, nailed to it, to prevent the rain from run- ning down into a little building it pass'd thro'; which exactly agrees with the laws of electricity, as applied to explain the phoenomenon of thunder. The electric mat- ter discharged itself with concentrated violence from the metalline sheet just mentioned, and thereby produced the effect. Private letters from Utrecht of the 25th inst. mention, 1 that the brave Gen. Blakeney made two vigorous sailles on the 6th and 7th of this month, in which the royal bat- tery of the besiegers has been very near entirely ruined. It is reported that Sir Edward Hawke has orders to inspect Admiral Byng's log book, to see the reason of his A few days since the inhabitants adjoining to Dean's- yard, the Bowling alley, and part of Smith street, had notice to quit their houses by Michaelmas next in order to their being pulled down, to build a fine square there. Last Friday morning between Sawtry and stiltOn Was found dead on the road a travelling post- man, who the night before fought with his fellow traveller, who bruised him in such a manner, that not being able to get to the next town, it is supposed that the wetness of the night was the occasion of his death. Extract of a letter from a gentleman in Virginia,' to his correspondent at Liverpool, dated Williamsburgh, April 28, 1756. , " We are every moment alarmed with dreadful ac- counts of the barbarous murders committed by the French and Indians on our back inhabitants,. About an hour- ago an officer arrived in town, with an express to the gover- nor from Col. Washington, the particulars of which are not yet known, only in general, that 608 French and In- dian; are close by Winchester; that last Friday and Satur- day nights they murder'd and scalp'd 7 families, not one escaping; their bodies were found mangled in a terrible manner particularly one woman big with child, Whom they opened and scalped the infant. All communication . betwixt Winchester and Fort Cumberland is entirely cut off Ashby's and Edward's Forts are both invested by large bodies of Indians, so that we are very apprehensive of their fate. Col. Washington, Col. Innis, Capt. Stew- art, and several other officers, are at Winchester, but can't possibly get to the fort, as the militia absolutely re- fuse to march, particularly the Dutch, who are very nu- merous in these frontier counties. The governor has or- dered ten counties to be raised, and one half of each to be draughted, and to join Col. Washington at Winchester, by the 10th of May, at furthest ; and the assembly are now forming a militia bill, by which, it is hoped, they will be under better regulation than they have hitherto been. Three counties on the frontiers are quire deserted excepting a few in the neighbourhood of Winchester, who have joined Col. Washington. In short, we are in a very lamentable situation, and if we are not speedily supplied from Britain with men and money, this colony must be ruined." Were the Public but sufficiently sensible of the great and numberless as well ornamental as useful advantages, they would reap and receive from P Jullion, Dentist, and Operator for the Teeth, at the Two Heads, in Co- ventry- street, Piccadilly, new invented and approved method of making and setting of artificial teeth, that one can use as one's own, without being discernible or painful, so many otherwise genteel persons of both sexes would not be seen, or go one day longer with a dis- figured mouth and an interrupted speech, proceeding from the loss of more or less of their teeth unless it be their obstinacy. or poverty that prevents their applying for relief, which every one that does will be sure of find- ing agreeable to their mind. Whosoever doubts the truth of this, and are disposed to be relieved, shall, on applying to the operator as above, have occular demonstration thereof at any time of the day. Deal, June 28. Sailed his Majesty's sloops Savage and Fly on a cruize. Arrived the Roehampton armed ship with three Dutch hoys; and remain with his Ma- jesty's ship Oxford, Admiral Smith. being so long on his voyage to Gibraltar, & c. Yesterday morning the second troop of horse grena dier guards and the hussars went thro' the whole scene of an engagement in Hyde- park to the general approbation of their officers. This morning his Majesty's two troops of horse guards, and the two troops of horse grenadier guards, were mus- tered in Hyde- park by the Deputy Commissary- General, and made a very fine appearance. And to morrow morning his Majesty's first regiment of foot guards will be mustered on, the parade in St. James's- park. Last Friday Edward Bacon, Esq; recorder of the city of Norwich, was elected one of their representatives in parliament, in the room of Lord Walpole lately created a peer. The unanimity that appeared amongst citizens of all denominations, was the greatest ever known in fo populous an election, and the most infallible proof of their approbation, and of his merit. On Thursday last two houses and a barn were burnt down at stilton in Huntingdonshire, being set on fire by the lightning, which was that day very terrible. WHEREAS HENRY GRADY, late of Ballilahiffe, in the County of Limerick, in Ireland, who stands out- lawed for the forcibly carrying off SUSANNA GROVE, Spinster, an Heiress, on the 5th Day of March 1753, did on Sunday the 6th Day of June, 1756, in the Midst of Divine Service enter the Church of Tipperary in the said Kingdom, with a great Number cf Out- laws, and other Men in Arms, , and did thereout [ in open Con- tempt of the sacred Place and Laws of the Country] forcibly and vio- lently again carry way the said Susanna Grove', denouncing with the most direful Imprecations and Oaths, Menaces of Death to any Per- son who should attempt giving her the least Assistance, which, dread Resolutions they seemed so determined to perpetrate, that one of the Villains made a Stroke with a Hanger at the Rev. Mr. John Arm- strong, the then officiating Clergyman, for his offering to remonstrate the Heinousness of the Offence; and when as the said Grady and his Accomplices have by all Accounts sailed for France, with Design, as is supposed, to enter into the Frcnch Service, and thereby find Pro- tection for their unprecedented Violence : This is therefore to give public Not'ce, That laid Grady and his Accomplices may be seized on and secured in case Stress of Weather, or any Circumstances, should force them into the BritishDominions; and Hannah Grove, Mother to the said Susanna, do hereby offer a Reward of three Hundred • Pounds Sterling for seizing and securing said Grady, and the Sum of One Hundred pounds Sterling for each and every of his Accomplices so seized and secured, as that he or they may be transmitted to the Kingdom of Ireland ; and the Sum of Two Hundred Pounds for rescuing- and protecting the said Susanna from said Villains, till I shall be apprised thereof. HANNAH GROVE. Grady is a middle sized Man, inclined to Fat, well made, slightly marked by the Small- pox, and ruddy Complexion ; his Hair light brown, but then wore a Wig and Velvet Cap; his Age about Thirty five.

Conclusion of Voltaire's account of the battle of Fontenoi, Anno 1745. THE King charged the Duke de Pequigni, who has now the title of Duke de Chaulnes, to go and see those four pieces pointed : they were designed, they said, to cover the retreat. We shall make no retreat, said the Duke de Chaulnes, the King commands that these four pieces contribute to the victory.' Upon which M. de Senneval, Lieutenant of artillery, goes and plants them directly opposite to the column. The Duke de Richelieu gallops full speed in the King's name to give orders to the King's houshold to march: he communi- cates this news to M. de Montesson the commanding officer, who is transported with joy, and immediately put himself at their head. The Prince de Soubise as- sembles his gendarmes under his command ; the Duke de Chaulnes does the same with his light horse; they all draw up in order and march. The four squadrons of gendarmes advancing at the right of the King's houshold, the horse grenadiers at their head under their captain M. de Grille, and the musketeers commanded by M de ju- millac, rush boldly on. The Dauphin was advancing with sword in hand to put himself at the head of the King's houshold ; but they stopped him, telling him that his life was too precious. ' Mine's not precious, said he, it is the General's life that is precious the day of battle. In this important moment, the Count d'Eu and the . Duke de Biron at the right, beheld with concern the troops quitting their post at Antoin; the Count de la Marck their commander with reluctance obeying. ' I will an- swer, said the Duke de Biron, for his disobedience, I am sure the King will approve of it now that there is so great a change in our favour; I answer that Marshal Saxe will think it right.' The Marshal Coming up at that very time, was of the Duke de Biron's opinion. The Gene ral having been informed of the King's resolution, and of the good disposition of the troops, readily acquiesced. He changed opinion when he was obliged to change it. He made the regiment of Piedmont return to Antoin; he moved, not withstanding his weakness, with great velo- city to the rignt and left, and towards the Irish brigade, strictly recommending to all the troops he met upon his way, not to make any more irregular charges, but to act in concert. Whilst he was with the Irish brigade, attended by M. de Lowendahl and my Lord Clare; the Duke de Biron, the Count d'Estrees, and the Marquis de Croisy, were on the right, opposite the left flank of the column upon a rising ground: they perceived the Irish and the regiment of Normandy who were advancing towards the right flank. Now is the time, said they to one another, to march on our side, the English are beaten M. de Biron puts him- self at the head of the King's regiment those of Aube- terre and Courten follow him ; and all the rest advance under the Count d'Estrees. Five squadrons of Penthievre's regiment follow M. de Croisy and his children s the squa-- drons of Fitz- James, Noailles, Chabrillant, Brancas,;. and Brionne, advanced with their Colonels, though they had received no orders; and it seemed as if there was a perfect harmony between their movements, and all that had been done by M. de Richelieu. Never was the King better served than at that very instant: it Was the quick- est and most unanimous movement. My Lord Clare marches up with the Irish ; the regiment of Normandy, the French guards, and a battalion" of Swiss advancing higher up towards the redoubt of Eu. All these corps move at the same time; the Irish commanded by my Lord Clare, against the front of the column, the guards higher up, under the Count de Chabannes their Lieutenant co- lonel. They were all separated from the British column by a hollow way ; they force thro' f filing almost muzzle to muzzle, and then fall upon the English with their bayonets fixed on their muskets. M. de Bonnafanse, at that time first captain of the regiment of Normandy, who was afterwards the first that jumped upon the covert way of Tournay, was now the first of his regiment that broke through the column : but the officers' of the French guards had already made an impression The carabiniers betwixt the Irish and the King's houshold, were then piercing thro' the first ranks ; they were feen to run about and to rally in the midst of the enemy, when the crowd and their impetuosity had disordered their ranks. Unluckily they mistook the Irish, who have near the same uniform as the English, for English battalions; and fell upon them with great fury. The Irish cried out Vive France, but in the confusion they could not be heard ; so that some Irish were killed thro' mistake. The four cannon which the Duke of Richlieu had called for, and by the Duke de Chaulnes had been levelled within one hundred paces of the column, had already made two discharges which thinned the ranks, and began to shake the front of the enemy's army. All the king'* houshold advanced toward- the front of the column, and threw it into disorder. The cavalry pressed it hard upon the left flank; Marshal Saxe had recommended to them particularly to bear upon the enemy with the breasts of their horses, and he was well obeyed. The Count d'Es- trees, the young Prince de Brionne, killed some of the enemy themselves in the foremost ranks : The officers of the King's chamber charged pell mell with the guards and musketeers. All the pages were there with sword in in hand ; so that the Marqui; de Tressau, who command- ed the brigade of the King's body guards, said to the King after the battle, ' Sire, you sent us pages whom we took for so many officers.' The Duke de Biron at that time held the Dutch troops in play, with the King's regiment and the brigade de Crillon. He had already sent M. de Boisseul, a first page of the great stable, to tell the King that every thing went well on his side, and that he would undertake to give a this Day was published Done for the Use of his Royal Highness the PRINCE of WALES A CHART of UNIVERSAL HistORY.
