BERROW's Worcester JOURNAL. Printed at his OFFICE in Goose- Lane, near the Cross] ^^ ^ . , " WEEKS this Journal Price Two- Pence.. THURSDAY, December 30, 1756. N 2474 has been publish, d. T0 the AUTHOR of a Paper against DISTILLERY. To the OLD GRAZIER. SIR, BRISTOL, Dec. 10, 1756. Have had the Perusal of your Letter of the 6th Instant, in the Bath Journal, on the fatal Consequences attending the British Distillery : And, if the bad Effects are such as you describe therein, ' tis Pity but if should be totally prohi- bited, or put under better Regulations than it is at present. The Dearness and exorbitant Price of Wheat and Barley of late, as well as most other Sorts of Provifiuns, is become justly Matter of serious Enquiry into the Causes of it. Various Reasons have been given the Publick what may have brought this Calamity upon us, prudent Steps prescrib'd for our Relief, and ' tis with much Pleasure I observe a Beginning made to redress it; but I am really jealous the Grand Cause has. not yet transpired. His Majesty's Pro- clamation, prohibiting the Export of Grain, cannot fail answering the good End for which it wa$ made, together with the prudent and timely Precautions taken by our worthy Magistrates here, in opening this Port, with the extraordinary Encouragement annexed for the im- porting Grain, Which will most likely furnish a plentiful Market ' much sooner than expected : And it is much to be wish'd that other prudent Restrictions may follow it, touching the Buyers and Sellers of Corn, as the Law has provided, which would, in very little Time, ease our present Comptaints. v • The Meatmen too, in Turn, have shared the Publick Censure, and have been falsely charg'd with being Engrossers, Monopolizers, & c. and the great Advance of Corn placed to their Accounts ; but those Gentlemen have, in the late Bristol and other Papers, sufficicntly clear'd Themselves of deserving the Charge, and prov'd, beyond Contra- diction, that if they had not supplied the craving Necessities of this City and its Neighbourhood, for nine Months past, whilst the Managers of larger Capitals were asleep, the City would have been in a starving Condition, and for which they deserve the publick Thanks of its Inhabitants. Therefore the Source of our Grievances seems now to rest with the Distillery in general. Yet I don't perceive any such noisy Clamours ot the Inhabitants in London, about the Consumption of those Works, as appears in Yours and some other letters in the Bristol and Bath Papers, nor any Recourse had to ensnaring Artifices that serve only to poison the Minds of the restless Populace, and make them more ripe for Riot and Plunder than they are already. Therefore, Mr. Grazier, I very much question the Truth of your Estimate in the Bath Journal of the 6th Instant, of the Consumption of these Works at Worcester and here. And,- the Better to confirm my Suspicions, as I may not be so well acquainted with Manufactories of this Sort as yourself and others may be; yet, for the Sake of Truth, and to convince all unpre- judiced Persons, I have obtained, from one of the Concern'd here, an authentick and unquestionable Account of their Consumption for Six Years last past ; whereby it plainly appears, upon an Average of those Six Years Work, that their Weekly Consumption has not exceeded Sixty- two Quarters and a Half. or Five Hundred Bushels instead of your glaring Account of Five Thousand Bushels per Month. And, from the best and most credible Informations I can procure, and which may be relied on, their Consumption at Worcester, in the some Time, has not been more, if so much, instead of your ghastly Account of Seventy- three Quarters per Day Really, Mr. Grazier, as you are in Years, and, perhaps, have not many more to survive, Having past your Grand Climacterick, ( you do not say how many Years) you should pay fome Regard to Truth, and not father Things so noto- riously false and improbable, without more carefully enquiring into the Truth of your Information : Indeed your Age pleads some Excuse for your Mistates ; yet that is hardly equal to the Abuse offer'd, tho' some People think it the Effect of your peevish Dotage, rather than imagine it calculated for to mischievous End. Now ( if you will allow the Preceding to be the real State of the Distillery in our Neighbourhood, as I aver it to be, and will, at any Time, be oblig'd to prove it, when call'd upon for that Purpose, as far as relates to this Work here) we are therefore still at as great a Loss as ever to know where, or on what to fix the Grievance com- plain'd of, and the late scanty, Sparing Supplies of Grain at our Market. I agree with you that we have had plentiful Crops, and tolerable saving Harvests, for several Years past, and as earnestly want to know what is become of its Produce as you do It don't appear that the Mealmen or Bakers have any Stocks by them, nor indeed can they have, so long as they are supplied from Hand, to Mouth only ; which has been the Case for fome Years back, and much too likely to con- tinue to be the Case, ' till some Expedient be found out to fill the Markets with Grain, at heretofore : Nor does it appear, from any Accounts yet publish'd, that it is engross'd by any One Sort of Mono- polizers to lie by for the present Advance. ' Tis equally true that the Consumption it the British Distillery, about five or six Years ago, was one Third more then, than it has been any one Year since. ' Tis, I think, also true, that the Export of Grain, about the same Time, was near Two- thirds more than it has been for a Year or Two last past. . Yet, notwithstanding, the great Call for Export, and the extraordinary Demand for the Distillery, at that Time, Wheat sold currently at 41. td. and 41. 911. per Bushel in the Years 1751, 1751, and 1753; Barley it at. J « -' to * « . gd. ' Tis thrrefore evident, that your ill- natur'd and furious Severity against the Distillery is ill grounded, false, malicious, and without any Manner of Foundation; and, ' till you are more in Love with Truth. and get somewhat nearer Matters of Fact, it would be more becoming an honest Old Grazier to mind his own Business, and be silent about Things you Seem altogether a Stranger to and know nothing of. If you really third after the Relief of the Poor, at you would insi- nuate, and will rightly Search into the Occasion of their Distress, and the Rise of Corn in Time of Plenty, cast your Eyes round about you, and be thankful with myself that there are Schemes upon the Carpet which will most likely set us both to Rights, and, perhaps, others to, who are yet in the Dark about it, which can neither deceive us, nor admit of any Doubt or Dispute about the Certainty.. I am the more pleas'd with the Design, having some Assurances it will be put in Practice ( it may be completely done and finish'd in less than one Month). The Scheme formed is, That every Collector of the Land- Tax, throughout the Kingdom, shall Survey every Parish they collect in, and deliver such Survey, upon Oath, to the General Receiver, who shall make a true Report of the same at the Board, of the Stock of Corn on Hand, and where such Corn lies; whereby, Mr. Grazier, you will be convinced, and find the Bulk of Corn, so much wanting and wish'd for, lies heap'd up in the wealthy Farmers' BARNS and BArTONS ; and is, I doubt, likely to continue there awhile longer, ' till their unrelenting Hearts are softened, and thereby induced to furnish more friendly Supplies at the Publick Markets, as usual; which those Gen- tlemen are ufficiently enabled to do, thro' the plentiful Crops of Six or Eight successive Years last past ; and thereby made capable to lend their Moneys on, and, by Degrees, engross ( also) those very Estates they occupy ; but, ' tis to be hoped, the Legislature will take the Affair in Hand, and some Expedient be found out, e'er long, that may check the growing Evil, and produce a Plenty, as formerly. When this happens t be the Case, you will have no fresh Occasion for those groundless Reflec- tions on the British Distillery, Mealmen, or Others, but it will then centre with, and manifestly prove, that the Farmers Themselves are the only Engrossers. However, this is at present, the Sentiments of A Tradesman. P. S. If, after perusing the Foregoing, you should still bosom the same bad Opinion of the Distillery, as before, and continue, Fire and Faggot, Right or Wrong, against the Manufactory, it would be no difficult Task to propose a Law, totally to suppress it, without Injury to the Revenue •• And therefore I would recommend a fresh Survey of the Lands throughout England, easily and equally tax'd ; which will more than make Amends for the whole Amount of those Duties arising from the Spirituous Liquors, great as they are,. FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. M1LAN, November 30. WE hear from Genoa, that some rich Merchants of that City hive sent the Empress Queen very con- siderable Sums at a very reasonable Interest. Stockholm, Dec i. The 18th of last Month an Ordi- nance was publish'd by the King, forbidding, under very severe Penalties, the Distillers to make any spirituous Liquors from Corn. Marseilles, Dec. 1. We hear from Toulon, that an English Jesuit is arrived here, in order to teach the Ma-. rine Guards his Language. The Ministry judging that a Knowledge of the, English Tongue is not only useful, but even necessary to our Sea Officers, have demanded this Professor of the Provincial of the Province of Lyons, and he has already began to give Lessons at Toulon. Dresden, Dec. 10. Between eight and nine hundred Livery Servants, discharg'd by Persons who, in the pre- sent Distress of their Country, have laid down their Equi- pages, have been forced by Hunger to enlist for Soldiers in the Prussian Army. L O N D O N. [ Thursday, Dec. 23. There are Letters in Town from Philadelphia, dated the Beginning of November, which say, that Lord Lou- don was beginning to talk of going into Winter Quarters, and that they were entertain'd with Hopes of having Twenty Thousand Men in the Field next Spring ; which, as they observe, will be little enough, if the Report be true, which they had some Days before from Jamaica, i e. that the French had sent six Men of War and thir- teen Transports up the River Mississippi. Other Letters from North America say, that the French Army was within three Days March of the Forces under Lord Loudon ; and, as they are superior in Number to our Troops, ' tis fear'd they may not let his Lordship go quietly into Winter Quarters. Notwithstanding the many Reports we have had about a new Survey ot the Land, in order to put Things upon an equitable Footing, it does not appear that any Persons are appointed to examine into this important Af- fair ; fo that it is concluded nothing will be done in it this Year, as many expected, who, tho' they are possess'd of Lands to a great Value, are very willing to raise a sufficient Supply to enable his Majesty to carry on so just a War with Vigour, and strengthen his Hands in such a Manner that he may speedily and effectually send a pro- per Force to put a Stop to the cruel and savage Behaviour of the French towards our Fellow Subjects in America. The Right Hon. the Earl of Euston, who was last Week elected Member of Parliament for Aldborough, in Yorkshire, was also on Tuesday elected for Bury, in Suffolk, and tis thought he will take his Seat in the House of Commons for Bury. . The Right Hon. William Pitt, Esq; is chosen for two Places, for the Town of Buckingham and Okehampton. It is said he will make his Election for Okehampton, and that the Hon. James Grenville will be elected in his stead for Buckingham. Yesterday several Chests of Silver were shipped by the East India Company for their Factories. The same Day 10,000 Ounces of Silver Coin were shipped for Holland. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Dec. 21. " Rear Admiral Coates will soon go to the West In- dies in the Terrible, with large Squadron of Men of War, Commodore Stevens with another Squadron to the East Indies, and Rear- Admiral Norris and Commodore Holmes to America with another. Remain the Admirals Osborne, Smith, Mostyn, and Norris, with 34 Sail of Men of War and Sloops." Extract of a Letter from an Officer in Garrison, at Gibraltar. dated October 20. " By Water our Defence is very weak, for if once we should lose the Dominion by Sea, we could not keep the Town for three Weeks, as there are several Parts of the Coast without the least Fortifications, and with a small Fleet they would immediately destroy us. Lord Tyrawley is exerting himself vastly in the Defence of this Place, by building several strong Batteries in different Places, and repairing old ones which were out of Repair. His Lord- ship has begun a new Work, the greatest that ever was undertaken in Gibraltar, which is as follows: The weak- est Part of this Garrison was from the South Bastion to the new Mole ; his Lordship is causing a Breastwork to be made within about 100 Yards of the Line Wall, of Hog- sheads filled with red Sand, which he runs from the Bastion to the new Mole aforesaid, which is about Half a Mile, with Embrasures for Cannon, to cover the Breastwork, in case the Men with Small- Arms should be beat off the Line Wall, that they might retire through the Salley- Ports within this Breastwork, which lies out of Danger of any Cannon from Shipping." Extract of a Letter from Mr. Daniel Butler, Midshipman om Board the Isis Man of War, dated Gibraltar, Sept. 15. " Honour'd Father and Mother, " I hope you and all our Family are well. On the 19th of July last we took a Brig off Minorca; on the 21st Mr. John Forster and Self, with six Hands, went to take the Charge of her ; on the 12th of August we left the Fleet, being bound with her to Gibraltar, and on the 25th, at Seven in the Evening, were taken withia 4 or 5 Leagues of our Port by a French Privateer of ten Carriage Guns, besides Swivels, and forty Men. They took our six Hands out, and left us Two to be carried into Malaga, and sent on board us five of their Hands; they brought with ' em three Scimitars; we had no Swords, Cutlasses, or Small Arms of any Kind on board; we were pretty free, and they drank a Cordial or two together, which they gave us, for we had none, nor had we any thing but Water on board; the Wind was fair, so we laid our Heads together, and raised a Scheme to retake her, which answer'd ; when we found the best Opportunity to fall on, our Signal Words were St. George; we judg'd it best to surprize them when they were putting about, their Arms laid close to the Man's Feet that steer'd, and let go the Helm to lay hold of the Fore Brace, we then secured the three Scimitars, hove one over board, and fell on cutting and slivering ' em with their own Scimitars, being very fit for that Purpose, as- they were brave and sharp. They laid hold of the Handspikes, & c but we soon made them drop ' em, and cry out for Quarters, which we gave them at soon as they ran up the Fore Shrouds. It was about Eight in the Morn- ing when we retook her, and about Two or Three . in th « . Afternoon we got into Gibraltar Bay, with four of our Prisoners in the Fore Top, and one in the Fore- Stay- Sail Netting; some of them are gone to the Hospital, being sadly wounded. I should be glad to tell you the Affair Face to Face. We have got the Applause of every Body here. We are going up shortly by the Experiment Man of War to Sir Edward Hawke, and don't doubt but he'll do for us. No more at present from Your ever dutiful Son, D. Butler Letters from St. Kit's say, that before the Middle of last Month, 54 Privateers bad been fitted from the Lee- ward Islands and Barbadoes, who were every Day bring- ing in Prizes, and many of them of considerable Value : That the French, for Want of Seamen, have fitted out but few, and those had but little Success,- and that, in some late bad Weather, several Vessels were lost there, at Montserrat, and other Places; but no considerable Da- mage sustained on the Islands. Letters fiom Gibraltar, of the 10th of November, ad- vise, that Admiral Hawke, with 13 Men of War, would sail in a few Days for England ; and the rest of the Fleet was left under the Command of Admiral Saunders. A few Days since the Rev. Mr. John Wingfield, Fel-, low of All Souls, in Oxford, was presented by Sir John Astley, Bart, to the Perpetual Curacy of St. Julian's, 1a Shrewsbury ; and we hear the Earl of Tankerville has been pleased to appoint the same Gentleman to be one of his Domestick Chaplains. Yesterday was married at Fulham, the Earl of Hynd- ford [ by a special Licence from the Archbishop of Canter- bury) to Miss Jane Vigor, onlv Daughter of Benjamin VIGOR, a Gentleman of it very ancient Family. On Sunday last died at Hounslow, suddenly, between 70 and 80 Years of Age, Mr Shannon, formerly Foot- man to the late Queen Caroline, to whom she left his Wages to be continued and paid during his Life. On Monday died the Lady of the Right Hon. George Bubb Duddington, at his House in Pall Mall. The same Day died Mr. Kitchen, first Master Cook of Chelsea Hospital. . From Padst0w. in Cornwall, we hear; that on Friday the 3d Instant the Inhabitants were all alarmed with an Account that several hundred Tinners were assembling at a Place call'd St Agnes, in order to proceed to Padstow to plunder the Town of what Corn was in it, and after- wards to set it on Fire, The next Day ten of them ac- tually came into the Place, but committed no Riot, but the Day after sent iway two of their Number,' as it was supposed, to give Notice to the rest, that the Inhabitants were not capable to resist them, as likewise that there was some Barley in the Town, which had been bought op for Malting i accordingly on Monday the 6th Instant. in the Afternoon, about ; or 600 of them, with several Women, and upwards of 100 Horses, came into the Town, and immediately began plundering, breaking open Ware houses, tec. nnd carrying away all the Grain they could meet with; and though the Proclamation was read to them by the Civil Magistrate, it was all in vain, for they loaded all their Horses, and What they could not Carry off with them, they either sold or gave away. After they had broke open the Warehouses, they proceeded to the Key, where there happened to be a Sloop bound to Guiney, which they imagined had Corn on board, and several of them endeavoured to board her, but on firing some Swivel Guns, though only with Powder, they thought proper to desist ; however, for their Satisfaction, the Captain suf fer'd two to come on board, to see there was no Corn in the Vessel. They staid all Night in the Town huzzaing and carousing, and the Town was net quite clear of them ' till Ten, next Morning. The Inhabitants some Time be- fore had petitioned the Secretary of War for a Party of Soldiers, which was immediately ordered, but they could not march Time enough to prevent the Town's being plunder'd : The Party came in two or three Days after the Riot, and, it is thought, will stay there during the Time their Regiment is in the County. , A few Days ago was committed to New Prison, by Justice Fielding, a Journeyman Taylor for Burglary ; but his Irons being too tight, he desired to have a wider Pair ; upon which the Turnkey gave him a Blow with his Double Fist, and knock'd out the Taylor's Eye. The Turnkey was immediately taken before a Justice, and committed to Newgate, On Sunday a Respite was sent to Newgate for John Hughes, for forging and publishing a Bill of Exchange, with Intent to defraud j and for William Pallister, for stealing a Silver Tankard. The other Seven were execu- ted at Tyburn, on Monday last. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd the MAILSfrom Holland and Flanders. ALTENA, December 1. WE hear from Stade, that twenty eight Transports of homey Beak, the fourth Part of an Inch, or more round, quite alive, and so alert as to four Hours in a Bason, when it was cut to Pieces. " The Gentlewoman has been since remarkably easy, and is in a fair Way of doing well. COUNTRY NEWS. Winchester, Dee 23 On Monday arrived here Colo - nel Watson, accompanied with several English Officers, in order to conduct the Hessians to their respective Quar- ters.

A Vessel, lately arrived from Quebec, brings Advice that the Indians have sworn the Ruin of Halifax, and that great Numbers of them are actually employ'd in cutting through a Mountain to shorten the Way thither. Brest, Dec. 3. There is a grand Project on Foot, but the Whole is so well conducted that nothing will transpire ' till Things are quite ready for putting it in Execution. The Bustard Frigate is arrived here from Canada, and has brought two hundred English Prisoners, who are lodged in the Castle. This Ship brings Advice that, just before their Departure, the Indians in our Interest defeat ed a Body of English Horfe, whereof eighty were killed or wounded ; and afterwards seized on a Fort, and put the whole Garrison, consisting of one hundred and sixty, to the Sword. Paris Dec. 13. It is currently reported that the Squa dron which lately sailed from Brest, is gone to Anamab. o, in- order to drive the English from their Settlements on the Coast of Guiney. Thus, - whilst BRITANNIA boasts of her Fleets the FRENCH talk and act as if she had not a Ship upon the Sea. IRELAND. Dublin, Dec. 18. We hear that six National Regiments will speedily be raised in this Kingdom, to be paid only when on Duty : And that an Encampment of Ten Thou- sand Men will be form'd in the South of this Kingdom early in the Spring. The necessary Orders for providing the Magazines with Provisions and Forage are already issued. Sunday a Gentlewoman in Wine Tavern- Street, who had been ill for a considerable Time, took a Fancy to eat a fresh Herring, which she did with a Sort of Appetiie, and chewing some of the small Bones, swallowed them ; the had not done this long, before she felt a strange Com- motion in the Stomach, and taking a small Cup of Liquor immediately began to puke, and in a Lift or two brought up a large red Worm, sixteen Inches long, with a Kind Ships taken or retaken from the French —— The Centurion Man of War. lately arrived from North America, took upwards of Thirty Prizes there. A Ship from St Do- mingo, Burthen 300 Tons, Capt. Le Touch, and a Vessel, Name unknown, from Nantx for the West Indies, are ta- ken by the Harwich Man of War, and carried into Lisbon. The Prince Frederick, from Rhode Island for Bristol, was taken on the 18th past by a Bayonne Privateer, and retaken four Days after by the Lucca of Bristol, a Letter of Marque Ship, and sent into Waterford. A Privateer belonging to Havre de Grace, of 10 Guns and 56 Men, is brought into the Downs by his Majesty's, Ship Centaur. The Pelham, Pernrier, from Virginia for Glasgow, and the Enterprise, Jones, from Maryland for London. are both retaken by the Blakeney Privateer, and carried into Guern- sey. The Jane and Joseph, Buryan, from Bourdeaux to Martinico, is taken by the Guernsey Man of War, who parted with her at Sea. The John and Mary, Seers, from Faro for Plymouth, was taken by a French Privateer, who put six Men on board, but they were overpowered by the Men left in the Vessel, and she is brought safe into Lyme.

The Right Hon the House of Peers have adjourned to Tuesday the 11th of January ; and the Hon. House of Commons to the 7th of January. On Friday last the Scrutiny, which began the Day be- fore at Aylesbury, was closed, Frederick Halsey, Esq; declining to carry it on longer; upon which the Hon. Thomas Potter, Esq; Joint Paymaster General of his Ma- jesty's Forces, was declared duly elected, and returned accordingly. According to exact and authentick intelligence { by the Way of Dantzick) the King of Prussia has actually above 30.000 Troops, quartered in the Kingdom of that Name, and near 16,000 in Pomerania ; and they assure us, that his Prussian Majesty will send an Army into Courland, the Momant he hears that the Russian Army, commanded by Field Marshal Apraxin, makes any Movements towards Prussia. The Hague Gazette tells us, the the principal Object of the Commission which Baron Wedel, Chamberlain at Hanover, is gone to execute at the Court of Denmark, is to engage his Danish Majclly to let his Britannjck Ma- jesty, as Elector of Hanover, have a Body of 10 or 12.0oo Danes in his Pay, to be employ'd in defending that Elec- torate, in case the French should attack it next Campaign. Letters from Toulon advise, that 300 Genoese and Neopolitan Ship Carpenters arrived there the 1st Instant; and they flatter themselves that they shall be absolutely Masters of the Mediterranean next Spring.- We abso- lutely believe as much, considering what Pains are taken In a certain Place to thwart them who are labouring for the Publick Good. A Letter from Brest, dated December 1, runs thus The Squadrons of Messrs. dc Beaufremont nnd Da- chey are in the Road, and ready to put to Sea ; but we don't believe they will depart till the Arrival of twenty- two Ships belonging to the East India Company, which, are expected in a Fortnight at farthest. It is computed that about Twenty Thousand Land Forces embark in this Combin'd Fleet." We are told that the Landgrave of Hesse- Cassel has sent to desire the Return of his Troops* and that his Ma- jesty has consented to their Departure as soon as Trans- ports can be provided for them. Some private Letters from Brussels mention the Death of the Pope ; but as none of the Nuncios at the Courts of Germany have received Advice of it, it does not meet with Credit. There are Letters from Virginia, of the 16th of No- vember, advising, that the Cherokee Indians have de- serted our Interett, and seized the Fort which they lately gave us Leave to buitd on their Territory ; and Major Lewis and his Men, who were in the Fort, have been forced to make the best of their Way back to Virginia. The same Letters mention's Skirmish between Colonel Washington and a Party of French Indians, the Particu- lars of which were not known, except that he had sent to Williamsburgh four Prisoners and eight Scalps. Two Battalions, of 15oo Men each, are going to be raised in the Highlands of Scotland, to be commanded by Col. John Cambell, and are to be sent to America. Majors Montgomery and M'Kaye are to be Lieutenant- Colonels of the Battalions. Yesterday the Right Hon. Lord Blakeney set out from his House in St. James's Street for Portsmouth, to attend Admiral Byng's Trial'. The Duke d'Aumont Privateer, of Boulogne, was, on the 15th Inst. drove ashore near the Old Head of Kinsale, and entirely lost, but the Crew saved. She mounted 14 Four Pounders, and Carried 150 Men, and had taken several Prizes j amongst them, the Anne, Brocking, and the Prince of Wales, Fell; the latter bound for Bristol, which she ranfomed, and ' tis supposed the Ransomers were on board. Capt. Clutsam; arriv'd at Bristol from Jamaica, came from there the 12th of October, with the Europa, Cook, for London, and the Nicholas, Jennings, for Liverpool, but parted with them at the West End of Cuba. About fifty leagues from Carolina, he spoke with one of our Men of War on her Station, the Captain of which in- form'd him, that there were to sail, from Cape Francois, in October, about 100 Ships under Convoy of four or five Men of War of the Line On the 21st Inst. Admiral Knowles in the Essex, and the Orford Man of War, from the Bay of Biscay, arri< ved at Plymouth. We are informed that a Secretary to a Foreign Ambas- sador was very near being found in Bed with the Wife of a Taylor, at his House in a Village near the River Thames his Flight was so precipitate, that be left behind him all his Cloaths, a Gold Watch, and some Money, went to the Waterside, took Boat; and was obliged to the Water- man's Tilt for his Covering: And we hear the Taylor has been so civil as to send him home his Watch, Sec. On Thursday a youog Woman, about 17 or 18, cleanly dress'd, walk'd into the Thames at Westminster - Bridge, on the Lambeth Shore, and was drowned. Mr. Certis, a Gentleman belonging to the Six Clerks Office, ( one of the Persons that was burnt out at the late Fire at Staples- Inn) was found drown'd in Fleet- Ditch, on Monday Night. , Last Mondny Morning a poor labouring Man, going to work on Epping- Forest, was attacked by two Men, who robbed him of Seven Farthings, and what small Pro- visions He had to subsist on while he was at Work. On Wednesday Night, between the Hours of Nine and Ten. two Men, armed with Pistols and Hangers, enter'd the House of Mr Tryce, at Peterborough, in the County of Northampton, bound the whole Family, cut Mr. Tryce in a barbarous Manner, gagg'd bim, took a Dia- mond Ring off his Finger, robb'd him of > 40). and then made off. But, being described in the Country, they were supposed to be two Men who had pass'd for Captain and Surgeon of a Privateer, and accordingly they were traced to London ; where it was found a Post Chaise had set them down in St. John's Street, on Thunday about Noon. And Hand Bills being dispers'd about early Yesterday Morning, they were, stopp'd soon after by a Pawnbroker near Smithfield, to whom they offer'd to pledge the Ring ; and being carried before Mr. Fielding, they confess'd the Fact, and were committed to Newgate by the Names of George Jeffries and Thomas Hardy, They had each of them a Hanger when taken; and Jeffries had a Dia- mond Ring on his Finger, supposed to be Mr. Tryce's. About Seventy Pounds in Money was found upon them; which, in the Course of the Examination, they confessed to be Part of the Money taken from. Mr. Tryce's House. On Friday last a Farmer was robbed of a Watch and a Thirty six Shilling Piece, near Chichester. in Sussex, by a Footpad, who was soon after taken and committed to Horsham Gaol. A Candlestick was found in his Pocket, which he presented to the Farmer as a Pistol when he robbed him.

'• We have Intelligence from Monmouth, that this Day Fortnight about 200 Colliers entered their Market, armed with large Clubs, and caused the Grain there to be sold, the Wheat at 5 j. Barley at zi 6d. Peas at 3 s and Oats at 1s 6d. per Bushel; They also broke open the Storehouses 1 and a Party of them, who staid till the Monday following, being joined by a great Number of the Country Poor, sold the Grain they found in the Store- houses at the above Prices, and threatened to commit fur- ther Outrages; but, on the Interposition of the Magistrates, & c. they made a sudden Retreat ; and Capt. Parr's Com- pany of Foot being now quartered there, the Colliers have not since returned...— The Badgers. & c. have given up their Licences into the Mayor's Hands.—— The Mob threatened to destroy Mr. Sayer's and other Mills at Red- brook, but did not, however, do any Mischief there: They likewife endeavour'd to stop the Brockwear Boats, but were beat off by the Hands on board. And At Chepstow a Skirmish lately happened between the Inhabitants aud a few Colliers joined by some Country People ; in which one Man was killed, and two or three others dangerously wounded. That Town has been since so greatly alarmed with the Apprehensions of another Visit, that they have planted Four Swivel Guns on the Bridge, and others at the other Entrances of the Town ; by Means of which precaution, and the Arrival of a Party of Sol- diers now quartered there, every Thing at present remains very quiet.

A few Days since, the Gentlemen and principal Trades- men of Bromsgrove, in this County purchas'd six Bullocks, and gave away the Meat amongst the poor People of that Town On Monday last Moses Roberts was committed to our Coanty Gaol, for robtirig one Elizabeth Robert, on the Highway ( betwen Bradlorton and Evesham) Of a Cloak.

ISABELLA BAYLEY, of the Parish of Kilpeck, Here- fordshire, of a thin Habit of Body, aged about twenty, was taken ( Aug 22, 1755) with a Shivering, which was soon succeeded by a violent Fever, the Symptoms of which were intense Heat, excessive Thirst, discolour'd Tongue, Watchfulness, and Deliriums. She languished in this Manner till Aug. 30, when she lost very imprudently eight or ten Ounces of Blood. After this her Strength and Spirits greatly failed her. Aug. 31, her Pulse was scarce perceptible and intermitting, the Extremities cold, and she was thought to be dying. In these Circumstances fhe took Twenty Grains of Dr James's Powder. The Operation, in other Respects gentle enough, terminated in a profuse Sweat. Next Day, Sept. 1, her Pulse was raised and more regular, and she found herself greatly relieved : This Night the Dose was repeated, which ope- rated in the same Manner. Sept. z, she slept for the first Time since the Commencement of her lllness: At Night she took a third Dose ; and Sept. 3, slept soundly for se- veral Hours. All the febrile Symptoms now disappear'd, and without the Assistance of any other Medicine she re- cover'd, to the great Amazement of all her Friends. Charles Johnson, of the same Parish, aged twenty or upwards, had labour'd for some Days under a violent Fe- rer. About the latter End of July or Beginning of Au- gust, he took Twenty Grains of Dr. James's Powder. Next Day the Fever intermitted, and readily submitted to the Peruvian Bark. Susannah Minton, of the same Parish, aged eight Years, was, on the 7th of August, seiz'd with a Shivering, Vomit- ting, & c. which was follow'd by a violent Fever, great Thirst, & c. The Distemper increased till the 17th of the same Month. A Coma now came on, and she was per- fectly insensible. The Pulse in her Wrist was not to be discern'd, and her Death was hourly apprehended. Ten Grains of Dr. James's Powder were forced down, and re- peated every six Hours to a third Time, which had no sensible Operation: However, she began to complain of violent Pains, and her Pulse was raised considerably; she then took twenty Grains-, which purged her twice or thrice, after which she fell into a sound refreshing Sleep, and im- mediately recovered. Mary Minton, her Mother, of the same Parish, of a Corpulent Habit of Body, on Sept. 11, was seized with a Shivering. Vomiting, a burning Fever, and insatiable Thirst. The Distemper increafed to such a Degree, and affected her Head so much, that see lost her Hearing and her Senses by Intervals ; her Tongue, discolour'd, parch'd, and exceeding sore. Sept. 17, she took twenty Grains of Dr. James's Powder, which vomited and purged her a good deal. She took two Doses more, of seven Grains each, on the Friday and the Monday following; on which the Symptoms went off, and she gradually recover'd her Hearing and Health, and is much better than she has been for several Years past, Margaret Watkins, of the Parish of Kilpeck, Hereford- shire, was seized ( Sept. 12} with the same Symptoms as - her Sister Mary Minton. She took two Doses, 20 Grains each, of Dr James's Powder, and immediately recover'd. John Parry, of the same Parish, a robust strong Man, 1 was ( Nov 7) taken with alternate Fits of Heat and Cold, . which continued two or three Days, in which Time he was twice blooded. A Fever attended with the Symp- toms, as in the Case of Mary Minton, and an Inflamma. tion of the Lungs succeeded. He was again blooded, and took two or three cooling Draughts. Nov. 15, he bccame delirious, and the Inflammation so violent he could scarce breathe. He now took two Doses, twenty Grains each, of Dr. James's Powder, which had no visible Effe£ t. The Deliriums were without Intermission, and a Twitching of the Tendons now appeared. He took a large Dose of Musk and Nitre, and stimulating Cataplasms were applied to his Feet Nov. 17, Dr. James's Powder was repeated. His Urine now deposited a copious Sediment, and a fourth Dose compleated the Cure. Lettice Beven, of the same Parish, aged about twenty five, of an hectic Constitution, was taken ( Nov. 10) with the before mentioned Symptoms, in the Case of Mary Minton, she lost ten Ounces of Blood in the Beginning of the Disorder. She was reduced so low by the 15th of the same Month, that herself and Friends despaired of her Recovery. Her Pulse was extremely low and trembling, and Extremities cold. She took three Doses, ten grains each, of Dr. James's Powder; but, from a settled Per- suasion that ' twas impossible for any Medicine to save her Life, she could not be prevailed upon to take any more : These however, gained her a Respite of a Fortnight longer, in all which Time she was able to take no Sustenance but Balm Tea. Nov. 29, and Dec. 1, she took two Doses, twenty Grains each, of the Powder, which discharged by Vomit a great Quantity of yellow, putrid Matter, and soon after she fell into a found Sleep, which was the more refreshing, as she had not closed her Eyes for three Weeks before. ' Tis almost incredible that the Fever was so radically cured, and this Patient recovered her Strength to such a Degree as to be able to act as Nurse, and to watch alternately, in the long Illness of Anne Parry, which commenced about a Week after ; and yet this is a well attested Matter of Fact. The following Case is related more particularly and circim- stantially), as it will prove beyond Contradiction the Inno- cence and Safety, as well as the great Virtue and Efficacy, of these excellent Powders ] ANN PARRY, of the same Parish, then very big with Child, and much fatigued by her Attendance on her Husband in his Sickness, was, December the 7th, taken ill of this Fever. The whole Pleura was greatly affected with Stitches, and violent Pains extended themselves to the Head, Face, and Neck. She lost about thirty Ounces of fizy, dark- colour'd Blood in the Beginning; and, in regard to her Circumstances, the Cure was first attempted by Nitrous and Saline Medicines, without any Manner of Effect. The Danger became every Day more imminent. Dec. 19, the Fever was settled in her Head, was attended with excruciating Pains, violent Heat, Thirst, Anxiety, & c. and she had been confined a Week to her Bed, in which Time she had not once slept. From the Beginning she had been very importunate for the Powders, which saved her Husband's Life. Accordingly this Night she took about seven Grains, which were repeated every six Hours to a third Time. The Operation was very gentle. Next Day, Dec. 20, in tl « e Afternoon, the Fever, with all its Symptoms, entirely left her : An happy Event for herself and Family 1 for, at Night, Labour- Pains came on, and see was in two Hours delivered safely of a Child at its full Time. She continued well, her Condition con- sider'd, till Dec. 23, when the symptomatic Fever ap- pear'd. Her Head was violently affected, and she grew delirious. The Powders were repeated, and the Dose increased, with a proper Degree of Caution, from seven to twelve Grains. All Complaints were soon removed. Her Milk was preserved. She gives Suck to the Child, and both are perfectly well. [/ can't help taking Notice, That, tho all these Patients returned immediately to their ordinary Diet and Employments, and some of them exposed themselves to the Violence of the worst Weather, none of them relapsed ] These Powders were bought at Mr. Newbery's, ia St. Paul's Church- Yard, London, who is, the sole Dis- penser of them, and this it was thought proper to men- tion, as the Cure must undoubtedly depend on having the Medicine genuine. These Powders, sold at Mr. Newbery's in St, Paul's Church Yard, as above, are also, by his Appointment, sold by Mr. Blunt, in Ross; Mr. Hodges and Mr. Wylde, in Hereford ; Mrs. Simmons, in Monmouth ; Mr. Hasle- wood, in Bridgnorth ; Mr. Aris, in Birmingham ; Mr. Jopson, in Coventry, and Mr Berrow, in Worcester, at Two Shillings and Sixpence a Paper, containing Four Doses. This is to give Notice, That CHARLES WALLINGTON IS Removed from the BELL- INN, in Newport, in the the County ot Gloucester, to the RED LION in the same Place, and takes this Opportu- nity of returning his sincerest Thanks to his Friends for former Flavours, and assures them, and all Gentlemen, Ladies, and Others, who shall be pleased to favour him with their Custom, that they shall always find good En- tertainment and civil Usage, from Their humble Servants, Charles and Mary Wallington.
