BERROW's Worcester Journal. Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, August 11, 1757. N° 25o6 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd the Mails from Flanders and Holland. ELBING, JUlY 13 SINCE the Reduction of Memel, the Russian Squadron has sailed to Pillau, which defends the Kind of Bay wherein Konigsberg is situated. The Russian Ships are actually battering Pillau, and we hear distinctly from this Place the Report of their Cannon and that of the Prussian Fort. Copenhagen July 17. Rear Admiral Romeling's Squa- dron, which is cruizing on the Coast of Norway, is or- dered to return forthwith to Elsineur $ from whence we have Advice, that the Swedish Squadron left that Place Yesterday, and sheer'd for Carelscroon, in order to take some Troops on board, and transport them to Stralsund. A Russian Frigate took, a few Days ago, near the Island of Zealand, a Prussian Ship homeward bound, from England, whose Cargo is very valuable. Toulon, July 16. The English Squadron has appear'd again before this Port. From the signal- Cross we can count 16 Sail, and some pretend that the Admiral Ship is a First Rate. We now learn that the English quitted this Coast only to go to Villa Franca for some Refreshments Capt. Digne fell into their Hands with his Tender, but they set him ashore with all his Men, and took nothing from any of them. It is presumed that the Object of their Cruize is to cut off our Communication with Mi- norca, because they think there is a Scarcity of Provisions in that Island. However, before the Governor should be obliged to put the Garrison to short Allowance, they themselves would be forced to go and seek Provisions at Gibraltar: Besides, the Squadron fitting, out here, would soon open us the Way to Mahon, if there should be an absolute Necessity for it. We are careening the Oriflame and Hippopotame, and shall equip them immediately after. Paderborn, July n. All the Motions of the Marshal d'Etrees, and the Troops he has sent off by the Right of the Weser to Ford and Clendorp, plainly shew that he intends t0 advance to Hamelen, and give the Duke of Cumberland Battle, if he stays in the Position he two ta- ken to protect that Fortress. Paderborn, July 23. The Prussian Regiments have been detached from the Duke of Cumberland's Army with a Train of Artillery, in order to take Post on the Left Side of the Leine, and cover the Country j but some say they are destined to reinforce the Garrison of Mag- deburgh. That Prince's Army is still 45,000 strong, ex- clusive of Detachments and Garrisons. We are likewise to except the Hunters, whose Numbers are very consider- able, and who oblige the French Parties to be very wary, left they tall into the Ambuscades laid for them The Hunters of the Country of Brunswick have also just assembled, upon Advice that a Detachment of French Troops was to advance that Way. Utrecht, July 28. Letters from Bohemia take Notice, that the Austrians have recently received so great a Num- ber of Saxon Deserters from the Prussian Army, that the Saxon Army is already re established, and near 12,000 strong; some Letters from Prague say 20,000. Brussels, July 29. By a Letter from Ostend we have Advice that three English Ships arriving there last Wed- nesday from Sunderland,' laden with Coals, were imme- diately seized by M. de la Motte, who directed a Guard to be put on. board them, and their Rudders to be taken off, declaring that he would not release them till he re- ceived Orders from his Court and that of Brussels. It is pretended that a Suspension of Arms is concluded between the Hanovarians and French. SCOTLAND. Glasgow, July 25. Yesterday arrived from St. Christo- pher's the May, Capt. Douglss, who brings bad News to our Merchant , that six Snips belonging to this Place, outward bound to Jamaica, are taken by the French. Private Letter from a Physician in Edinburgh. Closeburn, Feb. 4. About a Quarter before Nine on Sunday Morning, we were alarmed with an unusual Mo- tion in the Waters of Closeburn- loch. The first thing, that appeared to me in this wonderful Scene, was a strong Convulsion and Agitation of the Waters from the West Side of the Loch towards the Middle, where they tossed and wheeled about in a strange Manner. From thence proceeded two large Currents formed like Rivers, which run with Swiftness and Rapidity beyond all Description, quite contrary ways, one from the middle to the South- East, and the other to the North East Points of the Loch. There they were stopt short as the Banks are pretty high, and obliged to turn, which occasioned a prodigious tum- bling and Agitation at both Ends of this Body of Water. There was likewise a Current, which rose sometimes con- siderably above the Surface near the West Side, that I frequently observed running with great Velocity an hun- dred Yards to the Southward, and returning in a Mo- ment with as great Velocity the oiher Way. What I noticed in the next Place, was the tossing of the Waters in the Ponds, which were more or less moved as the Agi- tation of the Loch came nearer this Side, or kept a greater Distance from it. As it is beyond my Capacity to give a particular De- scription of all that happen'd upon this Occasion, I shall conclude with telling you that the Agitations and Currents above- mention'd continued, without Intermission, for at least three Hours and a Half, or four Hours, when they began to abate a little in their Violence, tho' they were not quite over at Sunset. I had almost forgot to tell you that this strange Phenomenon wss renewed on Monday Morning, a little before Nine, and lasted for an Hour and an Half, but the Motion of the Water was not near so violent as the Day before. What is very remarkable, there was not the least Breath or Gale of Wind till Sunday One o'clock ; a Circumstance vthich helped us not a little in our Observations. LONDON. [ Thursday, August 4. An Order is given to the Master of the Mint for coin- ing 100,000 I. in Sixpences. It is reported that Fort St. George upon the River Sa- crament, at the Back of Alderney, is taken by the French. It is said there is an Account that the French have ta- ken one of our Settlements on the Back of New York, and gave out they intended to go in Search of Lord Lou- don to attack him ; also, that the French Squadrons were joined, and consisted of 23 Sail, and were going in Quest ot Admiral Holbourne. The Militia of Virginia, we hear, are all under Arms, and ready upon any Emergency to oppose the Incursions of the French and Indians; and that the English have been worsted in some late Skirmishes there. Orders are given for the Fleet and Transports to be ready for sailing from Spithead on or before the 15th Instant. \ In order to expedite the Sailing of the Fleet upon the intended Expedition, the Government have bought up a Number of Boats employ'd in the Whale Fishery, instead of building new ones the Repair of which Boats is just compleated in the Greenland Dock. Each of these Boats will be able to land 30 Men, or upwards ; and each Trans port Vessel is to carry three or more of those Boats upon their Booms. We learn by private Letters from Stockholm, that the present dominant Party in Sweden have either entered in- ty, or are about to conclude a Treaty with certain Powers, by which they propose to themselves the Recovery of all the Countries the Crown of Sweden possess'd in Germany, in Consideration of furnishing an Army of 30,000 Men, to act in Conjunction with the rest of the Allies, till the Ends proposed by this Treaty are accomplish'd. We hear that a List of the Names of some eminent Engrossers of Corn will be shortly exposed upon the Royal Exchange, one of whom has now thought proper to de- clare himself possess'd of 7000 Quarters of Corn. We hear that one of the most infamous Scourges of the Poor, by engrossing Corn, after being insulted at the Corn Market, hanged himself at Bow, to the great Joy of the whole Place ; it is said, when his Carcass is buried in the Highway, the Bells will ring a Peal, and the Butchers from Spitalfields and Whitechapel are to play the Dirge of Judas Iscariot, with proper Pauses for intro ducing three or four Cart Loads of dead Dogs and Cats. The Ceremony will be performed on Saturday next. We are told that an old Miser who had a single Acre of Wheat growing at Fifield, near Windsor, the other Morn- ing found himself greatly astonished by its having entirely disappeared: It seems a Posse of People had fallen to Work in the Dead of Night, cut it down and carried it clean off ; so that the Owner found nothing but a few Women and Children leazing in the Stubble. The write from Dublin, that a large Cargo of Spanish Wheat, of this Year's Growth, is arrived in that Har- bour. The Harvest is in great Forwardness in many Parts of the Kingdom ; and it is universally allowed, that Corn is much heavier in the Sheaf than has been known in the Memory of Man. Copy of a Letter from Jonathan Parker, a Foremast Man on board the Minerva Snow, dated Port/ mouth, July 30. " Our Vessel Minerva was taken by a Brig Privateer from Bayonne, our Master and Mate taken from us, none continued but me, a Dutchman, and the Boy ; we were kept Prisoners for thirty Hours, when I took the Advan- tage of my new Masters, who were 13 in Number, con- fined them, bore down on Sight of the Essex and Isis Men of War, who embraced the Opportunity of protecting me, and am come safe to this Harbour." A few Days since died at Montrose, in Scotland. Wil- liam Maitland, Esq; F. R. S. Author of the Histories of London and Edinburgh, and of the History and Antiqui- ties of Scotland. This Gentleman was born at Brechin, and had lately return'd home, to spend the Remainder of his Days with his Relations, who, ' tis said, have got by his Death above 1 o, 0001. Sterling. On Sunday Morning died the Rev. Mr. Ryland, Rector of Sutton Coldfield, to whom the Advowson of that li- ving, which brings in about 5001. a Year, did belong. Last Tuesday Night, about Eleven o'Clock, a Man with a Silver laced Hat ( but mean in Apparel) went with a Porter and a Pormanteau to the Black Bull Inn in Hol- bourn, where he enquir'd for a Lodging and discharg'd his Porter ; but Mr. Thornborough, Matter of the Inn, not liking his new Guest, enquir'd from whence he came and whera he was going, and not receiving a satisfactory Account he secured him in Wood Street Compter, and being Yesterday Morning carried before the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, it appear'd the Portmanteau was cut from behind a Coach on Tuesday Evening, whereupon he was committed to Newgate by the Name of Richard Boyd. Last Tuesday Evening several uninhabited houses ( ex- cept by a few who paid no Rent) fell down in Shoemaker Row, near Duke's Place. The Reason was, Part of them was down, and Several Persons resorted thither to pillage and carry off the Ruins, who not knowing properly what they were doing, so weakened the Whole, that five of the Houses fell in an Instant, and several were buried un- der the Ruins, two of whom have been found in the Rubbish. Yesterday Morning, about Four o'Clock, the Watch- man beating his Rounds in Union Court, Holborn, found a Woman naked, wallowing in Blood, and on enquiring she proved to be the Wife of an Ivory Turner, who lodg'd in the above Place, and was heard to fall from the Win- dow of the Room where she and her Husband lodged ; and on. searching her Head, they found her Skull fractured ; on which she was carried to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, and her Husband to Wood Street Compter, it being sus- pected he had thrown her out of the Window; but on Examination before the Right Honourable the I. ord Mayor, it being proved she had been for some Time delirious, the Man was acquitted of ( he Charge. Oa Sunday last as Mr. Greenwood, an eminent Grocer, in King Street, Westminster, was walking along St. George's Fields, with his two Daughters, he was seized with an Apoplectick Fit, and died immediately. Extract of a Letter from Mr. Lukey, Master of his Majesly's Ship Tartar, to his Father, now in Dublin. ' I take this Opportunity, among other Things, to give you some Particulars of our Success, in the suppres- sing of an inveterate Enemy, by taking the following Prizes within the Course of eight Months, via.

My Share of Prize Money amounts to about 9000 I." Witham, in Essex, August I. Four young Fellows be- longing to Kelvedon, coming from Tiphe Fair last Tues- day, in Company with two Girls their Neighbours, ra- vish'd one of them, and each of them lay with her in his Turn, whilst the other three held her Legs and Arms the other Girl bravely defended herself with her Penknife, and so escaped. Two of the Villains are taken and sent by justice Bennet of this Place to Chelmsford Gaol > the other two are fled. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS, Arrivd the MAILS from Holland and Flanders, LISBON, June 23. WE have had some slight Shocks of an Earthquake, particularly in the Neighbourhood of Cascars. The Bahia Fleet is sailed with a fair Wind. They write from Oporto, that a general Pardon was expected to be publish'd there on the King's Birth- Day, the Want of which struck a great Damp on every Body's Spirits. The Misery of the Inhabitants of that City encreases daily, Provisions are incredibly dear, and Trade entirely at a Stand. The Bishop, who uses his utmost Endeavours to excite his Majesty's Compassion, has caused 20, coo Crasa- does to be distributed among the Poor. Leipstadt, July 29. The Count de Gisors, only Son of the Marshal de Belleisle, passed through here the 27th, going Post to Versailles with the News of a Battle fought between Marshal d'Estrees's Army and that of the Duke of Cumberland, in which the former had the Advantage. The 24th, The Corps of the Duke of Orleans, and that of Marshal de Chevert, composing together 16,000 Men, came to Blows with the advanced Guards of the Hano- verian Troops who attacked them several Times, but were as often repulsed". Tbe 25th at Six in the Morning, Marshal d'Estrees caused the General to be beat, in Order to advance. The Army leaving their Tents standing, begun their March at Noon in three Columns, and went'and encamped in Pre sence of the Duke of Cumberland's Army, in a Plain where its Right was covered by an Eminence, and its Left was out of the Reach of Cannon. Some Batteries of the Hanoverians began to fire, but without doing much Da- mage. The two Armies remained all Night under Arms opposite to one another. At Day break Marshal d'Estrees went to reconnoitre the Hanoverian Army, the Right of which was stretched out to Hamelen, and the Left to Lauenstein, the Name of a great Hill covered with Wood; Upon which the Duke of Cumberland had erected several Batteries. His Army had in Front a fortified Village, on the Left of which was an impracticable Morass. » Such was the advantageous Position of this Prince, when on the x6tb, at Five in the Morning, Marshal d'Estrees made a Motion by which his Army posted itself near that of the Duke. The Batteries on the Right ot the Hano- verians fired very briskly. They were answer'd by the French Cannon with no less Briskness. The Marshal d Estrees would, if possible, have attacked the Hanoverians in Front, but the insurmountable Difficulties he met with, forced him to change his Plan. He resolved to go round the Hill Lauenstein, and to pe netrate at the same Time by that Mountain, in order to shut up the Left of the Hanoverians, and take it in Flank, M. de Chevert, who was charged with the Execution of the former ot these Operations, immediately begun his March with his Body of Troops, in order to go round the Hill. The Marquis d'Armentieres with the Reserve made his Way through the Trees that cover'd the Hill; but was much incommoded by a Battery of the Enemy of eight Cannon, and two Haubizes. Whereupon he de tached from his Left the Count de Gisors, with the Bri gade of Champiegne, to make himself Master of it. This young Colonel behaved so bravely, that at the second At- tack, he carried the Battery, aud turned the Cannon against the Hanoverians. In order to improve this Success, the Marshal d'Estrees made the Infantry of his Right advance and fire upon the Left of the Hanoverians, who finding themselves surround ed, as it were, and exposed on all sides to the Discharges of the Small Arms of the different Corps that advanced upon them, were forced to fall back upon the Centre of the Duke of Cumberland's Army. His Royal Highness made a Motion to the Right, in. order to favour the Re- treat of his Left, and the March of the rest of the Army to Copenbruck, which covers the Holloway Ways that lead to Hanover. By this Motion the Marshal d'Estrees has gained his End, the Duke of Cumberland being for ced to take a Position which by removing him from Ha melen, will prevent his covering that Place, or succouring it efficaciously in Case it should be besieged. The five French Regiments which weie employed in the Attack on the Left, have suffered most. Lieut. General Count de Laval Montmorency, M. de Bussy, who com- manded the Volunteers, and several other officers, are killed. Lieut. Gen. Marquis d'Chatelet is dangerously wounded. The Count de Belsunce, Brigadier Genual, is wounded in the Arm. Lieut. Gen. Count de Bousquet is mortally wounded. The Day after the Action, Marshal d'Estrees extended his Left beyond Hamelen, where the Duke of Cumber- land has left a Garrison, concerning the Strength of which our Advices differ. Paris, July 29. By a Brig, which left Cape Breton the 5th of this Month, and arrived the 22d at Brest, we have Advice of some Advantages gained over the English in those Parts; that the flat- head Savages have enter'd into Alliance with us; and that the five Nations of Iro- quois have sent a folemn Deputation to the Marquis de Vaudreuil, to renew their former Engagements with France, and promising not only to renounce all Commerce with the English, but to join the other Nations allied with us, to act against them. IRELAND. Dublin, July 20. Last Saturday Night the Brother of one Mooney, of Cabragh Lane, went there with a Posse of Ruffians, with a felonious Intent to take away a Horse out of the said Mooney's Stable, who, in attempting to prevent them from executing their Design, was most in- humanly butcher'd by his said Brother with a Hatchet, with which he fractured his Scull, laid open his Shoulder, and the Side of his Belly, and nearly cut off one of his Hands, so that there are no Hopes of his Recovery, and in like Manner cut open the said Mooney's Wife's Head ; after which the cruel Villain and his Gang made their Escape. COUNTRY NEWS. Chatham, August 5. On Monday Bread fell a Half- penny in the Pottle Loaf, and Yesterday it fell again a Penny in the same Loaf; and the Bakers talk of lowering it ' till all People shall say, It is reasonable enough 1 The Cat is at length turned out of the Bag, and now is discover'd who have been in the detestable Poor- starv- ing Plot of contriving an artificial Famine; for there are daily Accounts of many Farmers that have secreted their Corn, and would not own their having a Bushel, that are now brought to confess they have many hundred Quarters. - On Wednefday about 40 Men of Lord Effingham's, that were left on Shore sick, being recovered, embark'd at the Dock to go to the Nore, and join their respective Companies on board the Ships there, among which was a Woman Soldier, who has been some Years in the Ser- vice, and was in the Marines the laft War. Her Sex had been known some Time ago; but at her going off Yes- terday she was asked by the General if she would be dis- charg'd, but she desired 10 go, declaring, that she would serve as long as she could draw a Trigger or weild a Sword, which she seems capable of doing as well as most of the Men. Some say it is the famous Hannah Snell. LONDON. [ Saturday, August 30. There are Letters from Holland which say, that the Loss of the Duke's Army is 6000 killed or wounded. Army at the Isle of Wight.

All the Officers concern'd in the Expedition are order'd to Portsmouth directly; for which Place Sir Edward Hawke set out Yesterday, as did also this Day General Mordaunt. A Frigate is arrived it Rochelle in 18 Days from Louis- burgh, and brings an Account that Lord Loudon and Ad- miral Holbourne were both arrived at Halifax, and that the French had 18 Men of War of the Line in Louisburgh Harbour, with their Sails bent ready for sailing; so that we may soon expect News of great Importance. Admiral Holbourne took 111 his Passage five French Transports bound to Cape Breton, having on board 1000 Soldiers, with a great Quantity of warlike Stores, & c. The Ship that carried the Mail from Dover for Ostend, Yesterday was se'nnight, is taken by a French Man of War of 40 Guns. Letters from Oporto advise, that there are at present no less than 4000 Soldiers in that Town ; that 200 of tbe Mutineers have been seized; and that it is apprehended the new Company will at last gain their Ends, but that a few of the Grants will be reformed, or otherwise the Eng- lish will all quit the Place; none of them having bought any Wines since this Company was established. Yesterday Morning came to Town the Prince of Por- tugal, with tbe Envoy Extraordinary from the King of Portugal. We hear an Irish Phyfician is taken into Custody, and his Papers seized. Last Saturday English Wheat was sold at Liverpool from 5 s. 3 d. to 5 s. 6 d. per Bushel. We hear that Yesterday Mutton sold in Smithfield the dearest that has been known for many Years, supposed to be occasioncd by an extraordinary Demand of an advanc'd Price for the Use of the Sheep Pens ; the Salesmen being refused Admittance, unless they would pay the said extra- vagant Demand ; which has oblig'd the Grasiers to sell their Sheep and Lambs in large Parcels at Barnet, South- all, Hounslow, Rumford, and several other Places on the Road, that otherwise would come to Smithfield, and be sold in fmall Lots.

Another Express is arrived this Morning from Hanover, whereby we have learned the following Particulars relating to the Battle which was fought the 26th of this Month between the Army com- manded by his Royal Righness the Duke of Cumberland and that of the Marshal d'Etrees, ( to wit,) That on the Side of the former, Major General Count de Schulen- berg, Commander of the Body of Hanoverian Hunters, and the Baron de Dalwiga, Colonel in the Hessian Troops, were killed upon the Spot, and that the hereditary Prince of Brunswick and the young Prince of Anhalt were both wounded ; that the Ground upon which this Battle was fought, being too much inclosed, disabled the Hanove- rians from seconding the Efforts of the Troops which formed their Left Wing, so that those suffered excessively; but that the French, though they remained Masters of the Field of Battle, had lost many more Men than the Al- lies ; and that, as the two Armies are now situated, it ap- peared that this Battle was by no Means decisive. Paris, July ig. While the People of England are amused with a secret Expedition, we are going to open a new Scene for Speculation. The Marquis de Conslans has received Orders to sail from Brest with twelve Ships of the Line and six Frigates ; several other Vessels are to join him at Sea ; and we affect here to make a Mystery of his Destination. Brussels, August 5. The Letters from the French Army in Westphalia mention no Particulars of their Progress since the 29th past ; but it is postitively asserted from all Parts, that Marshal d'Etrees is recalled, and that the Duke de Richelieu is appointed to command that Army in his Stead, and is to be succeeded by the Prince de Sou- bize, in the Command of the Army assembling in Al- sace. We learn from the Austrian Army in Bohemia, that Zittau was taken on the 23d of last Month. It is faid that Town was reduced to Ashes. but that the Prus sian Garrison found Means to make thier Escape. — This Paragraph from the London Gazette.

[ Tuesday, August 9. Nothing has yet been said in the London Gazette in re- lation to the Battle of the 26th ult. between the Duke of Cumberland's Army and that of Marshal d' Estrees. In a Letter from a Merchant at Utrecht, to a Gentle- man in town, dated August 4, it is said, ' Just as I am ' closing this an Express is arrived, with an Account that ' the French Troops have taken Possesion of Hanover, ' and are exercising great Hardships to the People in their « Demands, & c. It is here said that his Royal Highness ' the Duke of Cumberland, with the Hanoverian Army, • will shortly join that commanded by the King of • Prussia. Whitehall Ev. Post. Yesterday it was reported that an Express arrived from the Duke, who is in high Spirits, and has been reinforced with 9000 Hanoverian Militia, and 8ooo Regular Prus- sian Troops. They write from Francfort of the 29th ult that a Rus- sian Courier, who had just passed through that City with Dispatches ( or Vienna and Ratisbon, left the Armies of the Marshals Apraxin and Lehwald but two Leagues asunder. We learn from Dantzick, that the Prussians avoid, as much as possible, so much as skirmishing with the Russian Army, which consists ot 120,000 Men, on account of an infectious Distemper that previils amongst them, and which has already made such Havock, at to oblige them to suspend their military Operations. Some Letters from Dunkirk say, that the three French Squadrons in North America had joined, and were at Louisburgh the zd of July, but just ready to put to Sea again. We are assured, that Lord Loudon had 10,000 Men on board at his Departure, and Provisions for six Months. An Order is gone to the Isle of Wight for the Embark- ation of the Troops. Admiral Saunders is cruizing off Toulon with seven Ships under his Command. We learn from Portsmouth that Admiral Hawke has hoisted the Blue Flag on board the Ramilies, Capt. Hobbs. The New Constant, of 300 Tons; and the Providence of 500, bound from Bourdeaux to Quebeck, with all Kind of Stores, are taken by the Eagle Privateer of Bris- tol, and brought into the said Port. Yesterday eight Ships arrived in the River from Dant- zick with Corn, on which the Markets at Bear Key fell so confiderably, as the Prices of Wheat to be from 22 to 31 Shillings per Quarter. According to some Letters from Paris, the Damage done by the French some Months ago to the English Settlements upon the Coast of Guiney, is computed at upwards of 6,000,000 of Livres Tournois, which is about 250,000 1. Sterling. A Report prevails at Paris of a Marriage negotiating between the eldest Archduke and the eldest Daughter of the Infant Duke of Parma. ' Tis said there are Informations already lodged against some Persons who omitted entering their Plate at the Ex- cise- Office, within the Time limited; which expired on Thursday last.

Fitz- williams, one of the Duke's Aids de Camp, and Colonel of a Regiment on that Establishment Yesterday Morning died, after a long Illneas, the Right Hon. the Countess of Winchelsea, Lady of the present Earl. Last Monday died in Spring Gardens, George Hellier, Esq; a Gentleman who possessed fo many excellent Quali- ties, as render'd him rever'd and loved by all, particularly his Lady, who was so shocked at his Death, that she ex- pired the next Day.

Sunday Morning about Two o'Clock a Fire broke out in the Houfc of Mr. Allsage. a Packer in the Old- Jewry, which burnt with great Violence for some Time before any Engine could play upon. it, for want of Water, so that nothing could be saved in that House ; it burnt also Mr. Virgo's, a Merchant, and damaged the Ware- house of Mr. Cottin. There were 48 Bales of Silk the Property of some Merchant, destroyed in Mr. Allsage's House. The Old Jewry Church was opened to receive the Goods of the adjoining Neighbours, so that there was no Service perform'd therein on Sunday. 1 he House of Mr. Cottin in the Old Jewry, as also thofe of Mess.

On Saturday Morning an elderly Woman, who liv'd at Kidderminster, was found dead just within the River near the Course, and where it was so shallow that the Water could not near cover her. She was observ'd the Even- ing before to be veiy much in Liquor, and therefore sup. posed to have stumbled forwards over some Mill Stones that lay at the Edge of the River. Saturday next will be Commission Day for holding the Assizes for this City and County, at which there is a much greater Number of Criminals to be tried than has been known, at one Assizes, for many Years.

We hear that a certain Gentleman near Ross was so much offended at the iniquitous Proceedings, and at the great Cruelty of the Farmers in this Country, in refusing to sell Grain in small Quantities to their own Workmen, and to the industrious Poor, that he has given Notice to Two of his most considerable Tenants to quit their Farms.

The following Very remarkable Case of the Right Hon. the Marquis of Lindsey, Son to his Grace the Duke of Ancaster, is publish'd by his Grace's Permission : On Friday the last Day of December, 1756, the Mar- quis of Lindfey, a Child of twenty Months old, on Sus- picion of the Measles, was bled to five Ounces, and no Signs of Inflammation appeared. On Saturday, the first of January, 1757, about Five o'Clock in the Afternoon, the Measles appeared. On Sunday, the second, they appeared full on his Face and Body. On Monday, the third, they began to decline, ar. d a Hoarseness, Cough, and a Fever came on. On Tuesday, the 4th, in the Morning, they had quite disappeared, without leaving the least Redness, and the bad Symptoms increased. He was then bled to five Ounces, the Blood shewing no Signs of Inflammation and about Three in the Afternoon, the Apothecary, who attended him, found more violent Symptoms, fuch as in creased Heat, wheezing Cough, universal Languor, and fluttering Pulse; on which he immediately applied Blisters to the Back and Arms, and Dr. Baker, Physician at Stam- ford, was sent for, who arrived about Eight o'Clock on Tuesday Night, and found the Fever very high, and the Cough violent. On Wednesday Morning, the 5th, the Symptoms ra- ther abated, a Clyster was given him, and at Three in the Afternoon ( at which Time the Fever was vciy vio- lent) three Ounces of Blood were taken from him, which shew'd no Marks of Inflammation. He bore this Bleeding so very ill, that it was with great Difficulty he was brought to himself: However, 011 his Recovery from the faintings, he appeared relieved, and had a tolerable Night. All Thursday Morning, the 6th, he continued easy, but at Three o'Clock in the Afternoon he was seized with great Difficulty of Breathing, and seemed in the utmost Danger. Two Blisters were then applied to the Legs, and as the Case became doubtful ( notwithstanduig Dr. Baker had with great Judgment prescribed every Thing that seemed proper in his Case) the Duke desired that Dr. James's Powder might be given, and at the same Time requested Dr. Baker's Attendance during the Operation, to which be readily consented, and gave the greatest Sa- tisfaction, by his particular Care and Attention. Accord- ingly, at Five in the Afternoon, four Grains of Dr. James's Powders were given, which, in thirty- nine Mi- nutes, vomited him briskly for an Hour, and gave him two Stools: At Nine o'Clock three Grains more were given, in twenty Minutes he had one gentle Puke, and went to sleep. The Pulse growing quicker in four Hours afterwards, which waS One in the Morning, he took four Grains more, which immediately came up; he then vo- mited twice in an easy Manner, had two Stools, went to sleep, but continued vomiting and purging gently at dis- tant Intervals, till Seven o'Clock Friday Morning. On Friday Morning, the 7th, about Three o'Clock, the Fever left him, and he continued free from it till Nine at Night, when his Pulse rose a little ; between Ten and Eleven he took four Grains more of the Powder, which in forty Minutes made him extremely sick ; he had several Strains for two Hours, but never vomited. N. B. Though his Cough had been extremely trouble- some before, ' twas remarkable he never coughed once during the two Hours of his Sickness; he then fell into a sound pleasant Sleep, and the Fever left him. On Saturday Morning, the 8th, about Three o'Clock, ' twas observed his Breast had sweated through his Shirt and Gown, after which he seem'd greatly relieved in his Breath and Cough. About Three in the Afternoon, as he seemed free fiom the Fever, a Dose of Rhubarb was given him, and he remained free from Disorder, except a gentle Cough. v The Powders are sold at Mr. Newbery's, the Bible and Sun, in St. Paul's Church- Yard.
