BERROW's Worcester Journal. 1 [ Printed at his OFFICE, in Goose- Lane, near the Cross. ] ! Price Two- pence Halfpenny. 1 tHURSDAY, July 21, 1757. FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. A DESCI 1PT ION of The LAND of PROMISE. ( T was on the First Dry of April, in the last Year of Jubilee, going upon i Fool's Ven- ture, 1 embark'd on Board the good Ship Expectation, Capt. Courtly Commander, which set sail immediately for the LANd of Pro- mise. After we had passed the Cape of Good Hope, we steer'd towards the Fortunate Islands, and, with a fair Wind, soon arrived at the End of our Voyage, and put into Port. We were all along very much deceived with respect to the Dis- tance : For when we thought ourselves close upon the Coast we found, by our Soundings, that we were a great Way off Land ; and the utmost Speed we could make scarce brought us nearer. Nothing, indeed, could be more enchanting than the Prospect we Had had before our Eye; of this Country afar off ; the Mountains seem'd to be cover'd with Gold, the Vales to glisten with precious Stones, the Trees to be laden with the richest Fruit, and the Rivers to flow with Milk and Honey. The Breezes which blew towards us wafted the most refreshing Sweets: Nor could we perceive the least Cloud in the serene Sky, but the Sun shone continually with the most dazzling Lustre: In short, every Thing tempted us to advance, with an Ap- pearance of uninterrupted Joy and Happiness. As soon as we had landed, I found the Inhabitants in a perpetual Hurry of Business, running to and fro, regardless of every Body but themselves, and wearing the Face of Care and Importance; There was a prodigious Crowd still pushing on towards the principal City, call'd Favour, the Entrance to which was guarded by the strong Gate of Interest, and No- body was allowed to go in by any other Way. We saw many constantly pressing forwards for Admittance, and as constantly repulsed ; yet some of them betook themselves to tha For- tress of Hope, where they waited for a more favourable Opportu- nity. There are innumerable Air- Castles scattered all over this District, which the People are continually amusing themselves in building up and pulling down ; but the greatest of all is the Castle of Vanity, from the Ramparts of which are display'd Ensigns of Blue, Red, and Green Ribbands. Some few, conduced by Pride, bent their Steps thither ; but the most Part had their Eyes fixed on the Grand Trea- sury, the Access to which is strongly barricaded by Authority, Some small Portions of the Wealth lodged in this Repository are dealt out in the Form of Bribes, Pensions, and secret Services; and the rest is divided among the Chief Keepers. In the Heart ot this Country there is a very high Promontory * call'd Ambition, on the Top of which is seated the Grand Palace of Preferment. Numbers were seen daily labouring to climb up to it, but came tumbling down again, and were dashed upoll the Rocks of Disappointment. Some; who took the high Road of Dependency, got Places therein, and others stole into it through the Bye- paths of Patriotism, Those who aspired to the lofty Pinnacle of Power, endeavour'd to turn others out, arid put themselves in their ' Room : But this is of a very tottering Situation; for during my short Stay among them, I saw several thrown down, and those very Persons advanced, which they had before served in the same Manner. I can say very little as to the Religion profess'd In the LANd of PrOMISe, Dissimulation and Hypocrisy being openly practised among them. The Sect of Independents is entirely unknown to them ; nor have they any Free Thinkers. Indeed there is scarce any one has an opinion of his own, but according to the strict Subordination ob- served among them) the Inferior borrows his Sentiments from the Superior. This is very remarkable in Two Houses, as they are called, where almost every one speaks as he is ordered. As to their Manners, they are exceeding polite and complaisant. You are sure to receive a Smile, a Squeeze of the Hand, a Nod, or a Bow, from every Body you address yourself to. They are always mighty glad to see you, are your very humble Servants, profess the highest Esteem for you, are ready to do you any Service, and you may command them ; but their Memory is unhappily very short, and sometimes they forget they ever knew their most intimate Acquain- tance. They are particularly fond of Procrastination; and To- morrow is a Word continually in their Mouths, but they are unwilling to do any Thing To- day. Their Hearts and their Tongues are at a very great Distance, and you mult generally interpret what they say by the Rule of Contrary. Through the Middle of this Country runs along the smooth River of Attendance, where Tide is very even and gentle. The People are constantly rowing down the Stream ; but sometimes it happens that, being quite spent and unable to steer their Barks properly, they are overwhelmed in the Gulph of Despondency, or swallowed up in the Quicksand's of Despair. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, July 9. ON Tuesday last Barley and Bigg fell six Shillings in a Load at Penrith in Cumberland, being a full fourth Part of the felling Price the Week before in the Market there ; Oats also fell a Fourth, or seven Shillings in a Load, and other Grain considerably ; so great a Fall having never been known in the Space of a Week before. bath, July 11. The Weather, for some Days past, is said, by the Curious in such Observations, to have been several Degrees hotter than for these four Years past. Pool, July 11. Saturday Night Mr. John Thornbur, of the Catherine, loaded with Coals, in Studland Bay, returning from Pool with his Boy only in the Boat, was too late with the Tide, and seeing a small Vessel near Pool Bar, went along Side to wait the Tide, taking her to be a Fishing- Boat, but was surprised to find himself Prisoner on board a French Privateer Open Boat, with eight Swivels and twenty- one Men and two Boys; tbe Captain spoke English very fluently, but being alarm'd at Thornbur's telling him the Tartar's Prize was coming early from Pool, and a Tender and arm'd Cutter were in Studland- Bay, he promised Thornbur his Liberty for piloting him out of the Bay in the Night, which he con sented to, if they could get out of Sight of the Tender, as he call'd her, on the Bay, who would certainly take her, if Day- Light appear'd whilst she was in View; the Frenchman was in Haste to begone, and rowed with ten Oars off five Leagues to Sea, and dismissed the Master and his Boy. The Privateer had taken one Prize and carried her into Havre on Friday, and came out again the same Day. Two Sloops and a large boat were mann'd Yesterday with Volunteers, assisted by Lieutenant Scrot- ton, in; the King's. Service, but the Privateer was quite gone off. She had a Lug sail, and rigg'd with a Mizen like the Deal Yacht. LONDON. Thursday, July 14. Two Vessels are gone Express to North- America. It is said that three Regiments will speedily embark for America. We hear a Draught will be made out of the three Regi nients of Foot- Guards. Yesterday upwards of 50 Pieces of Cannon were shipp'd at the Tower for different Ports on our Coast. This Day were shipped for Virginia 30001b. of Gun Powder, and certain other military Stores j to a considera ble Value. This Day 10000lb. of Mixt Silk was shipped for Pe- tersburg; IOZO lb. of ditto for Cadiz ; 323 Cwt of Lead and Lead Shot for Portugal; and 745 Ells of Sail- Cloth for NeW- England. Yesterday and this Day were enter'd at ihe Custom- House 99,792 lb. of Thrown Silk from the Streights, also 25,6861b. of Raw Silk from ditto, and i 1 50 lb of Raw Silk from Turkey ; likewise 1 20 Quartets of Wheat from Dantzick. We are inform'd, that Means have been found to stop the March of the Russian Army, and that the Court of Petersburg will remain Neuter in this War; And Mr. Keith, his Majesty's Minister at Vienna, is ordered to repair to the Russian Court with the Character of Embas- sador, in the room of Sir Charles Hanbury Williams, who had long since desired to be recalled, on Account of his ill State Of Health, We hear that the King of Prussia has desired that six English Ships of the Line be sent to protect the Trade of his Subjects in the Baltick ; and there is no Doubt but his Request will be comply'd with, if so many can be spared. But it is said that none can be spared, for fear of af- fronting Russia, who might, in such a Case, seize the Ef- fects of our Merchants there. Thus we feel the ill Effe£ ts of our Neglect of the Northern Colonies, who might long ago have been brought to supply the Mother Coun- try with all Kinds of Naval Stores, and thereby saVed the vast Sums that have been carried out of this Nation, to raise and cherish a Cockatrice in the Baltick. Letters advise, that Admiral Coates, with the Marlbo- rough of 80 Guns, the Lyme of 40, and the Hornet sloop of 14, and several Merchantmen under Convoy, arrived the 4th of May at Antigua. These Letters add, there were then on the Coast of Jamaica, & c. 12 Ships of War, viz. one ot 64 Guns, three ot 60, one Of 50, two of 40, and five of 20 Guns. On Friday last at about Half an Hour after Six in the Evening, a large French open Dogger Privateer with about 100 Men, came close in Shore at Brighthelmstone, and endeavour'd to cut out a Collier who had just before moored i But a Party of Dragoons, with the Inhabitants, forming themselves within Musfket Shot of them on the Beach, prevented their coming between the Collier and the Shore to cut her Hawser, otherwise she must have been taken, having only three Men and two Boys on board ; and the Mate, who was very active, would certainly have greatly damaged, if not sunk her, having pointed his Guns to bear, but could not get any Match lighted till she be- gan to sheer off, when he fired five Shot at her. Lord Romney offered twenty Guineas to anybody who would venture to go off in a Boat, of which there were several, to assist the Collier, but nobody would attempt it; the Dragoons remain'd under Arms the whole Night, and every body was greatly alarm'd, expecting every Hour that they would attempt to land. The Anson Privateer of Liverpool, is taken by the Warwick Man of War, and sent into Gibraltar. Since the Declaration of War the City of Liverpool have lost, by the Enemy's Privateers, no fewer than 22 Ships, besides two Dutch Vessels laden with Contraband Goods for that Port, computed 10 be worth 70,0001. On the other Hand, the Privateers belonging to Liver- pool have taken ten French Merchantmen, a Privateer, a Polucca, a steev'd Settee, a Brigantine, and two Nea- politans The St. Domingo Prize, brought in on the 26th by the Liverpool, Capt. Hutchinson, is valued at 25,000). The Value of the rest, though not as yet as- certaind. that upon the Whole, notwithstanding the great abovementioned, the Balance will turn out considerable in favour of Liverpool. Six or seven of the Crew of the Terrible Privateer] late commanded by Capt. Death, having made their Es-| cape from a French Prison, are safe arrived in Town. A Snow belonging to Biddeford, in Ballast, from Dart- mouth, run upon the Eddistone Rock last Friday Night, not seeing the floating Light; the Vessel is entirely lost. but the Crew were taken up by the Engineer that is re- building the Light- House. As the Price of Poultry, and all other Eatables, by the wicked Contrivances and Practices of Forestallers of the Market, Regrators; and Ingrossers, is very greatly in- creased, and, in this dear and scarce Time especially very severely felt by Housekeepers, who, by those Means, are obliged to pay near 20 per Cent, extraordinary for what they consume in their Houses, the Poulterers Company have caused to be stuck up in all the Markets, and on the City Gates, and other publick Places, Advertisements. offering a Reward of Three Guineas to any Person who shall give Notice of such Offenders, and promising that the Company will, at their own Expence, prosecute them with the Utmost Severity of the Law. 4 very worthy Example I which, it is hoped; will be followed by all the other Trades that deal in Eatables; and that all Persons, who shall have it in their Power to detect and convict any Persons guilty of the before- mentioned Crimes, will be ready and willing to do it. And it is said. that the next Session of Parliament, an Application will be made for a Law to punish these abominable Practices with Transpor- tation, or some other Punishment that may be thought adequate to such enormous Crimes, A few Days since the Rev. Mr. John Parry was col- lated to the Rectory of Eaton Bishop in the County of Hereford, vacant by the Resignation of the Rev Mr. Thomas Russell, Prebendary, and Lecturer of the Cathe- dral Church of Hereford aforesaid, who is presented by the Dean arid Chapter of that Cathedral to the Living of Woolhope, worth near 200 1. per Annum, and also to the Donative of Breinton, in the said County of Here- ford. Letters from Paris of the second Instant, bring an Ac- count of the Death of Elizabeth, Countess Dowager of Sandwich. She was Daughter to the famous Witty Earl of Rochester, whose lively Parts she inherited, and, not- withstanding her great Age, retained to the last ; her Conversation being eagerly sought after by those of the first Rank and Capacity. Her Ladyship Was in perfect Health in the Morning, and even the Moment before she died. By her Death a large Jointure; besides her personal estate, which is very considerable, devolves to her Grand, son, the present Earl of Sandwich. Yesterday the Sessions began at thit Old Bailey. Seven teen Prisoners were tried, two of whom were capitally convicted; vit. William Hadley and Stephen Harding, for breaking into the Dwelling House of Mr. Loveless in Dean- Street, Fetter Lane, and stealing a large Quantity of Goods; ten were call for Transportation; and five acquitted.

WE are here under the utmost Fear and Consterna- tion, upon Account of the Indians having again begun their Murders and Massacres in the Province of Pen- silvania, upon the River Delaware, adjoining to this Pro- vince; for Yesterday one of Capt. Vanetta s Serjeants was kill'd in Pensilvania, between Hanshaw's Fort and Samuel Duprey's, by Indians, being murder'd and man- gled in a cruel Manner; he was stripp'd quite naked, his Belly ripp'd open, and his Scalp taken off; his Horse was also shot under him with two Bullets. And last Week a Person was killed at Michael's Fort, in the same Province and three LONDON. | The Writer of this Paragraph says, and says solemnly, at he has given Dr. James's Fever Powder to a great number of Patents in the Small Pox, Fevers, and other uptive and Inflammatory Disorders, and that when ven at the Beginning, and continued for some Doses, his never known it fail. | In the Small Pox two or three Doses have, under his are, always removed the Pains of the Head and Back,' and brought out the Eruptions; after which the Patients have gone through the Disease chearfully, slept well, and complained only of being Hungry. In fevers it has answer'd tie Purpose intended, and enabled him to save the Lives of many who were given over by those who had attended them before. But Care should be taken in all these Distempers, to give the Sick plenty of thin diluting Liquors, to keep the Room cool, and to permit them to have Plenty of fresh Air. In this hot Weather, therefore, let the Chamber Door be kept open Day End Night, let the Curtains be always undrawn, and occasionally open the Window for a few Minutes to carry off the impure Air. Great Care likewise must be taken to procure the Pow- der genuine. What I made use of was bought at Mr. Newbery's, in St. Paul's Church Yard; and it always answered the Purpose. As these Disorders make at this Time great Havock rn Town and Country, it is hoped that due Regard will be paid to these Observations by all who are any Ways Con- cerned in the Care of the Sick. R. B. SHAPPEE, Practioner in Physick, Surgery, and Man Midwifry, Who was Pupil under his Uncle, Dr. Shippee, in his Ma- jesty's Service Fourteen Years, NOW travels by an Act of Parliament, _ and after Thirty Years constant and large Practice in a private well as publick Capacity, has acquired the Art of curing most Medicable Distempers incident to human Nature : He is allow'd, by all that know Him, to be a very ingenious Man in his Profession, and' has had very great Success in his Undcrtakings, and takes upon him to acquaint the Pubiick, that he is the Wonder of the Age for curing of Ruptures or Broken Bellies, from Eight Days old to Eighty Years old, in bath Sexes, ( tho of ever so long Continuance ) in Half an Hour, if the Grief can be put up. Likewise the Falling of the Womb in Women before they quit the Room, if they have labour'd under that Misfortune for Thirty Years. From December 17 to March 2 5, 1756, I have cured in Derbyshire, Staffordshire , York- shire, Nottinghamshire, and Lincolnshire, upwards of Sixteen Hundred Persons of Ruptures and Broken Bellies, and the Falling of the Womb in Women. Note, He is now at the Unicorn, in Broad- Street, Wor- cester ; and on Monday the First of August will be at the Crown Inn, at Stowerbridge, where he will continue one Month and no longer. Q, A Man, Fifty three Years of Age, who came from St. Ives, was cured this Morning, April gtl). of a Bowel- Rupture, Nineteen Inches in the Girth and Eleven Inches in Length, at the Doctor's Lodgings in Leicester. * » * The Doctor is greatly afflicted with the Gout, and the Reason of his Travelling is on Account of the Benefit he receives from Exercise. Brussels, June 11. An Express arrived last Friday with the agreeable News that the French had taken Emb- den, without any farther Trouble than that of appear- ing before it, and summoning of it to surrender, which it accordingly did. The Garrison, consisting of four hundred Men, were made Prisoners of War; and the French found in the Place thirty Pieces of Cannon, fifteen Ships, and a Magazine of Oats. Madrid, June II. A Squadron of twelve English Ships of War has passed off Cadiz, going to cruize in the Mediterranean. FOREIGN Occurances. Arrived the MAILS from Flanders and Holland. Dresden, July 3. THE first Advices from the Frontier were prema- ture, in regard to the Arrival of the Van of the Prussian Army, which was said to be returning from Bohemia. The Truth is, that Marshal Keith, when he retired from before Prague, march'd by the Eger, oc- cupied the important Post of Budin, and divided his Army on both Sides of that River; by which Means he secured the Communication with the King of Prussia's Army, which seemed to be cut off, but is re united by the March which his Prussian Majesty made from Nimbourg towards Melnick and Leitmaritz, where the two Armies are only aeparated by their Bridges over the Elbe , and this is the moat advantageous Situation that his Prussian Majesty could possibly be in, either to maintain his Ground in Bohemia, or prepare for another Engagement. We hear that the King of Prussia is going to send two thousand Men here from Berlin to reinforce our Garrison, and that his Prussian Majesty is likewise drawing off ten thousand Men from Silesia to reinforce his Army, Hanover, July S?. By the Inaction of the French they give the Duke of Cumberland an Opportunity to empty his principal Magazine at Hamelen, where no more Pro- visions and Forage will be left than is necessary for the Subsistence of the Garrison. In order to make all pos- sible Dispatch in removing that Magazine, all the neigh- bouring inhabitants are obliged to furnish among them three thousand Waggons. A considerable Body of French attempted the 5th Instant to throw a Bridge over the We- ser near Loccum, but our People having timely Notice of their Design, prevented its being put in Execution. Some Days before, another Detachment of their Army march'd towards Rintelen, in order to possess themselves of that Post, but were prevented by Baron Sporcken, who went thither with a Regiment of Dragoons and eight Batta - lions. Utrecht, July 11. We have received certain Advice this Day, that the Duke of Orleans marched the 5th with twenty Battalions and thirty- two Squadrons, and a Batta- lion of Artillery, in order to enter into the Landgravate of Hesse through the Bishoprick of Paderborn, followed by the Marquis de la Valiere, who marched the 6th with tilleir. The Hereditary Princess of Hesse and her LONDON. [ Saturday, July 16. It is reported that his Royal Highness the Duke of Cum- berland is so indisposed. that he has thought it necessary to call some of the Hanoverian and Hessian Generals nearer his Person than he formerly posted them. Letters from Brussels say, that just as the Post was set- ting out, a Courier arrived there with an Account that the French Army passed the Weser the 7th of this Month, without Opposition. . It appears, by Letters from Dresden, that his Prussian Majesty has no Thoughts of retiring from his Enemy's Country, where his Army, with the expected Reinforce- ments, will be near 80,000 strong ; and Advices from Germany say, that he was even making Dispositions for renewing the Siege of Prague. According to Accounts from Prague of the Damages done in that City during the late Siege, in the old Town 16 Houses were reduced to Ashes, 15 beaten down, and 153 ruined; 12 Persons were killed in them, and 18 wounded. In the new Town 122 Houses were burnt down, 116 totally demolished, and 154 ruined; 15 Per- sons were killed in them, and 21 wounded. In the Jews Town and at Aradschin 182 Houses were destroyed or al- most ruined. Among all these Houses they reckon six fine Palaces reduced to Ashes. Whole Streets are now nothing but Heap of Rubbish. The Gardens are de- stroyed. The Cathedral and its Tower have suffered ex- tremely ; the Altars are broke, the Church Pictures de- stroyed, or lacerated; and the Organ of the Cathedral, a Master Piece that had cost 180,000 Florins, is partly broken and partly melted. But this, they say, is only Part of the Damage done by the Bombardment. ' Tis said that the Transports taken up by the Govern- ment some Days ago, are ordered to be in Readiness to take Troops on board by the 20th Instant, and that 1 5,000 of our Troops are to be wafted over to Holland or Germany ; which, we think, will be better Employ- ment than lying idle at home; for if there was a Ne- cessity for raising them, and there is no Danger at present of an Invasion here, they should either be disbanded, or sent to the Assistance of our Allies : And provided we can cut out Work for the French, it may as well be done in Germany as in America :- The only Enquiry in this Case is, which of the two is most expensive, or most imme- diately wanted ? ' If our Intelligence concerning North America be well founded, nothing but the utmost Degree of ill Fate can, humanly speaking, make us unsuccessful in our Attempts upon the Enemy. No less, we are assur'd, than 44 Ships of War, have for some Time past been in those Seas; and 17 more are at this Time on their Way thither. These Circumstances have given Occasion to very considerable Betts that Quebeck and Cape Breton are by this Time in the Hands of the English. A Person of Character is arrived from North America with Dispatches from Lord Loudon, in order to represent the State of our Affairs m that Part of the Globe. It is said that Four Thousand of our Troops have Or- ders to hold themselves in Readiness to embark for Ame- Some Troops will embark next Week, it is said, at three different Places. An Order is gone to Plymouth for the several Ships there to be in Readiness to join a Squadron which is to sail from Portsmouth shortly. The Ships of War in the River and at Chatham have also received Orders to get round to Spithead with all convenient Speed. We hear that one of the Squadrons going out is intend- ed for the West Indies. We hear that Part of the Matrosses at the Camp at Chatham are ordered to hold themselves in Readiness for an Embarkation ; as also that some of the Train of Ar- tillery is to be sent with them. Twelve Men of War are now building in the several Yards in the River. One of the Ships of the Leghorn Fleet lately arrived, nearly escaped being seized by the Crew, which consisted of Genoese ; but an Accidental Quarrel between the Two Ringleaders, brought forth a Discovery, upon which the Captain put into a Spanish Port, and there confined them, in order to pursue his Voyage. It appears they intended to murder the few English on board, and then carry the Ship to Marseilles. A French Privateer, of 16 Guns and 330 Men, is taken off Altea by the Experiment Man of War. It is said, that the Privateer boarded the Experiment twice, and that the former had 100 Men killed, and the latter 20 ; also that the Lieutenant of the Experiment going ashore at Altea was detained, under Pretence that the Privateer was taken within Gun shot of the said Port; upon which the Captain of the Experiment sailed with the Prize to Gibraltar. : Letters received Yesterday from Barcelona advise, that the Fortune Sloop of War was arrived there to purchase Vegetables for the British Fleet, and that 14 English Men This Day were entered at the Customhouse 8o3olb. of Thrown Silk from the Streights, and 1050 lb. of Raw ditto from ditto. We hear from Pool, in Dorsetshire, that a few Days since they had neither Corn nor Bread to supply them one Day. Though the Effects of the present excessive Heats are in some Respects to be dreaded, they are likely to produce a very fine and plentiful Harvest; more especially in the Fen Countries, where they have already began to cut Oats and Rye, and will be advantaged in a Manner un- known within the Memory of Man. A Clergyman is in Custody to take his Trial for mar- rying contrary to the Statute in that Case made and pro- vided. On Saturday last died suddenly, The TEST, a political Paper, publish'd Weekly, remarkable chiefly for notorious Falshoods and Scurrility. Its Death was occasioned by a late Coalition. Yesterday died, at his House at Twickenham, after a painful and lingering Illness, in the 71st Year of his Age, the Right Hon. John Earl of Radnor, Viscount Bodmin, Baron Robartes of Truro in the County of Cornwall, F. R. S. His Lordship dying a Batchelor the Title is extinct. Yesterday as a Gentleman upon Change was talking to another, he was seized with a Fit of Sneezing, and in his endeavouring to stifle the same, burst some inward Vessels, and expired in less than ten Minutes. On Thursday Nighty as the Navy Shallop was coming up the River near Erich, by a sudden Gust of Wind it was overset and all the Persons in her but one were drown'd. It is said there were 16 Persons on board. Wednesday Morning several Men were' employ'd to empty the Necessary- House of John Harris, Esq; Mem- ber of Parliament, in Pall Mall; at Six o'Clock two of them came out of the Vault, and expired immediately ; the third was brought into the Street, and from thence carried to St. George's Hospital, but it is thought he died before they got there with him. The above mention'd dead Men lay in the Street till Nine o'Clock, when they were carried away by Chairmen. Thursday in the Afternoon, as some Workmen were clearing away Rubbish, in order to rebuild a House that they had taken down in the Borough, a Party Wall fell down and crush'd two Men to Death, and very much bruised another. On Thursday Afternoon a Soldier, either in Liquor or mad, came along the Strand with his Sword drawn in his Hand, putting every one io the greatest Fear and Con- sternation, ran at one Man with great Violence, but mis- sed him, and ran his Sword into a Sign Post : Every Body cried out to stop the Soldier, but none dared to attempt it, till one John Piercy, a Scotch Lad, Waiter at the New Exchange Coffee- House in the Strand, took up the Poker and ran after him, said he would knock him down, if he was the Devil ; the Soldier struck at him three Times, but Piercy at last brought him down, took his Sword from him, and carried him to the Savoy. On Thursday last was try'd by a special Jury at Guild- hall before the Right Hon. Lord Mansfield, by a Direc- tion out of the Court of Chancery, the long contested Cause between Sir Crisp Gascoyne, Knight, Plaintiff, and Mr. Benjamin Cleeve, Defendant, upon a Policy of In- surance on the Life of Blackbourne Poulton, deceased ; and after a Trial of about ten Hours the Jury brought in a Verdict for the Defendant Mr. Cleeve. Yesterday 17 Prisoners were tried at the Old Bailey, two of whom were capitally convicted, viz. James Wales, for committing the unnatural and detestable Crime of Beastiali- ty with a Mare ; and John Pritchard, for returning from Transportation before the Expiration of his Time. Four were cast for Transportation, and eleven acquitted. This Day the Sessions will end, when the Prisoners will receive Judgment. Among the Transports is the famous Lawyer Graham, otherwise Grimes, for receiving a large Parcel of live Carp, Tench, and Perch, knowing than to have been stolen.

LONDON; July 19, 1757. On Friday next, the 22d Instant, will be Publish'd, A New EVENINg PAPER, call'd LLOYD's EVENING POST and BRITISH CHRONICLE. The general Plan of this Paper is the same with that of the London Chronicle, which is already sufficiently known; but the Days of Publication will be different. It will be pub- lished in the Evening of every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and circu- lated thro' great Part of the Kingdom by the Post which now sets out on what were called the Bye Nights to all the trading Cities, and all the Sea Ports of Note. The Reasons that induce the. Proprietors to alter the Time of Publication from that of every other News Paper, are. that all the foreign Mails, in their regular Course, arrive in the Forenoon of thole Days, by translating of which the News they bring will be known in London the same Night, and in other Parts the next Day as early as it is at present in London. Add to this, that the corn - mercial Intelligence by private Letters, which before spread only to a small Circle round the Exchange, will be regularly inserted in this Paper, anl by an immediate Publication becomes generally known ; an Advan- tage of no small moment to Persons at a Distance concerned in Trade. To Inns Coffee- Houses, Taverns, and Publick Houses in the Country, the having a Paper regularly every Day, must be more agreeable to their Readers than having two or three at once, which usually are filled with the very same Intelligence, At a Time therefore that the Ex- pence of News Papers is greatly enhanced by a DOUBLE DUTY, an Attempt to serve the Publick in general, and at the same Time ease the Purchasers, will, it is hoped, meet with due Encouragement. •„• By sending Orders to the Clerks of the respective Roads,. Gen- tlemen, and others in the Cocintry, will be regularly served with Lloyd's Evening Post, as it is published. Ar. B.
