THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1761. FORTITUDE. PERILS, and Misfortunes, and Want, and Pain, and Injury, are more or less the certain Lot of every Man that cometh into the World. It behoveth thee, therefore, O Child of Cala- mity ! early to fortify thy Mind with Courage ; and Patience, that thou mayest support, with a becoming Resolution, thy allotted Portion of human Evil. As the Camel beareth Labour, and Heat, and Hunger, and Thirst, thro' Desarts of Sand, and fainteth not ; so the Fortitude of a Man shall sus- tain him thro' all Perils. A noble Spirit disdaineth the Malice of For- tune ; his Greatness of Soul is not to be cast down. He hath not suffer'd his Happiness to depend on her Smiles, and therefore with her Frowns he shall not be dismayed. As a Rock on the Sea- shore he standeth firm, and the Dashing of the Waves disturbeth him not. , He raiseth his Head like a Tower on an Hill, and the Arrows of Fortune drop at his Feet. In the Instant of Danger, the Courage his Heart sustaineth him; and the Steadiness of his Mind beareth him out. He meeteth the Evils of Life as a Man that goeth forth unto Battle, and returneth with Vic- tory in his Hand. Under the Pressure of Misfortune, his Calm- ness alleviates their Weight, and his Constancy shall furmount them. But the dastardly Spirit of a timorous Man be- trayeth him to Shame. By shrinking under Poverty, he stoopeth down to Meanness; and by tamely bearing Insults he inviteth Injuries. As a Reed is shaken with the Breath of the Air ; so the Shadow of Evil maketh him tremble. In the Hour of Danger he is embarrafs'd and confounded; in the Day of Misfortune he sinketh, and Despair overwhelmeth his Soul. The TRIPLE MARRIAGE: A NOVEL. MEN frequently exact from others a Conduct, which they make no Scruple of violating themselves, tho' nothing can be more unreasona- ble than to make an Exception in our own Fa- vour, and exclude others from the Privileges we assume ourselves. The following Transaction is a remarkable Instance of this unaccountable Dis- position. Mr. WILFUL had, at the Age of five and twenty, married a young Lady contrary to his Father's Consent ; yet when arrived at the Age of Fifty, he exerted himself in the most tyranni- cal Manner imaginable, to force a Wife upon his Son, and a Husband upon his Daughter, for whom they both had the utmost Aversion, and not without Reason. The Spouse which old Mr. WILFUL proposed to his Son, was a rich Widow, advanced in Years, who had but one Eye; the Husband he intended for his Daughter was ten Years older than him- self ; but he was of Opinion that his great Riches could not fail of making his Daughter happy, notwithstanding the Disparity of their Ages ; yet he himself had formerly married for Love a young Woman, who had no Accession of Fortune ; to great are the Changes that the different Periods of Life produce in the same Person. Young WILFUL, and his Sister LEONORA, mutually condoled with each other on the Per- plexity of their Situation, which was greatly ag- gravated by the Affections of both being already fixed upon other Objects. LEONORA had for some Time conceived a Passion for a young Officer, who in Person and Accom- plishments had few Rivals, though his Fortune was not answerable to hers, which she knew would be an insurmountable Objection with her Father. — The beautiful ROSALINDA had captivated the Heart of Young WILFUL, but the Smallness of her Portion had made him fearful of disclosing his Passion to his Father, even before he had pro- posed to him the above- mentioned disagreeable Match. Nothing could surpass the Uneasiness they felt, at finding themselves not only without Hopes of being united to the Objects of their Love, but daily pressed and importuned to marry the Objects of their Hatred. They both, however, resolutely declared their Resolutions never to give their Hands where they could not give their Hearts ; and their Father being at length tired out with their Constancy, desisted from urging as before. Thus was one of their Grievances removed, but still they could not be happy, whilst they saw no Hopes of arriving at the Completion of their Wishes. Their Conversation, when alone toge- ther, consisted entirely in lamenting the Cruelty of their Fate, and endeavouring, by mutual Con- solations, to alleviate each others Distress. They could not, however, long bear this Re- straint upon their Inclination ; LEONORA was soon after privately married to the Captain, and ROSALINDA to Young WILFUL. They all formed a Resolution to keep their Union secret ' till the Death of Old WILFUL ; and as they found Means to have frequent Inter- views in private, perhaps tasted the Pleasures of conjugal Love in a more exquisite Manner, as it by that Means had a Resemblance to unlawful. This Dissimulation was not, however, necessary for a long Time; an Accident ( which will be mentioned hereafter) produced an entire Change in the Behaviour of Old Mr. WILFUL. From the most despotic of Fathers, he all on a Sudden became one of the most indulgent. Young WILFUL and his Sifter observing this, formed the Design to discover their being married, to the old Gentleman, and implore his Forgive- ness. This they did, and the latter, after some Hesitation, granted it; but, added he, it is upon Condition that you in your Turn, bear with my Frailties and Imperfections. You mull know, my Children, that I have married privately my- self; behave well to your Mother- in- Law, and you shall never have any Reason to complain of me. Both Young WILFUL and his Sifter were transported at receiving this Information, and as- sured their Father in the most emphatical Terms, that they would behave in the same dutiful and affectionate Manner to their Mother- in- Law, that they had done to their Mother. Thus were all Parties satisfied at last ; though Old Mr. WILFUL found himself exposed to the Raillery of his Acquaintances, for having fallen a Victim to Love in his old Age ; and by marry- ing a young Woman without a Portion, violated thole prudential Maxims to which he had for many Years so strictly adhered. Some Time after, he died, leaving his Estate to his Son, and a considerable Jointure to his Wi- dow, who shewed her great Affliction at his Loss, by marrying a Colonel of Dragoons before the Year was expired. On Mr. PITT'S RESIGNATION. HENCE does the Gaul exult ? Can BROG- LIO boast At length one Battle not entirely lost ? Or has the Spaniard their Alliance join'd ? Alas ! much worse— our PATRIOT has resign'd. Friday's and Saturday's POSTS. [*** No FOREIGN MAIL arriv'd.] London, October 8. ESTERDAY an Express arrived from Spain, in which it is said, the Spa niards have declared their Intentions were not tor breaking the Peace with us, but only to act as a Mediator between England and France. A Let: er from Cadiz in Spain to a Merchant in Town, contains the following remarkable Ex- pressions. " The Partiality of the Spaniards to our professed Enemies the French, which, before was always too evident, becomes now every Day more and more notorious. Our Invoices and Bills of Lading are examined with the greatest Rigour, our Permits detained on the most trifling Preten- ces, our Goods frequently obliged to lie in the Warehouses for want of being examined by the proper Officers, and every Method used to our Discouragement, while the French are continually experiencing some new Token of their Favour and the Ships of that Nation permitted to pass al- most Duty free. We know not in what those Things will end ; but from the Frequency of the Expresses, which we are assured are constantly pas- sing from Madrid to Paris, and the great Prepa- rations making in Ferrol and other Ports of Spain, for fitting out Fleets, the Destination of which is kept an entire Secret, we look upon a War between Great- Britain and this Crown, as almost inevi- table, unless the mighty Men in Power, on your Side the . Water, should think proper to do otherwise. On Monday the Right Hon. Mr. Pitt resigned the Seals as one of his Majesty's Principal Secre- taries of State. It is reported that certain uncommon Heats which gave Occasion to a late Resignation, hap- pened in Council after the Departure of a great Personage ; who Yesterday, in several Hours Conference with a Right Honourable Commoner, signified his Pleasure, that the said Gentleman should by no Means think of quitting his high Office. We hear, however, on the other Hand, that Mr. Pitt will not accept of the Seals again. But says the Whitehall- Evening- Post, it is ge- nerally talked of that a certain Right Hon. Person has resumed his high Station. The Earl of Egremont, among several others, is talked of to succeed Mr. Pitt. The Report that his Grace the D. of B. was appointed Secretary of State in the Room of Mr, Pitt, we believe, is entirely fictitious, as his Grace was not at Court Yesterday. There is no Certainty who will succeed Mr. Pitt ; some mention the Hon. George Grenville, and others Mr. Charles Townshend ; but many expect M. Pitt will re- assume his Office, and we heartily wish we could assure it to the Public from Au- thority. There are many Conjectures concerning the Occasion of this Circumstance, but it is hop'd that a few Days will reinstate him, to the satisfaction of true Lovers of their King and Country's Interest. We are credibly informed, that at a late Grand As-- bly, a certain Noble D--- made use of such evasive Arguments, that a certain great C r could net refrain telling him they were absolute Falsities. Yesterday the Right Hon. William Pitt, Esq. late Secretary of State, was some Hours with the King at St. James's. It is reported that a certain Embassador residing here has wrote to his Court, to advise a Taurici- dium or Bull- Feast, upon Mr. Pitt's Resignation. The Scheme planned by our great Patriot, with Respect to the Spanish Court, is said to have been as follows, viz. to send fifteen Ships of the Line to join that Number already under the Com- mand of Admiral Saunders in the Mediterranean, to enter the Port of Cadiz, demand a categorical Answer from the haughty Spaniard, as to his having assisted the Enemy of Great- Britain ; and then, as the Exigence should require, burn, sink, or destroy, at full Liberty. Yesterday Admiral Rodney kiss'd his Majesty's Hand at St. James's, and is speedily to let out for Portsmouth. We hear that every Ship of War in our Service is to be speedily put into Commission. Yesterday Commissions were issued for raising three new Regiments of Foot. It is said, that M. de Bussy has received from the King,' his Master, a very great Present for his faithful Service in England. It is confidently asserted, that M. Bussy, in Conjunction with a certain Person, during his stay in England, acquired not less than 60,0001. by Stock- jobbing. It's said that Mons. Bussy is returning here, not doubting in the lead, but thole who assured him that the Nation could not carry on the War any longer, will conclude a peace with him now upon his own Terms. The Consequences of keeping a French M r here, have lately been experienced in a remarkable Degree, by the Dissensions which ensued on his going away ; they mult certainly have some very good Friends bete, who favour them with Intel- ligence, as on the 15th of May last, they published an accurate List of the whole British Navy, with their several Rates and Stations, from the highest to the smallest Vessel in the King's Service, whether in Harbour or out, and where. An Act of Grace is much talked of, as intended to be presented to Parliment at their Meeting ; an Instance of which has not happened since the first of Queen Anne's Reign. It is reported, that a Motion will be made in Parliament, for laying a heavy Tax on all Sorts of Quack Medicines. We hear that one Day last Week a young Coun- tryman, from Newcastle, who, for some Months past, has been an Out- door Clerk to an eminent Banker in Lombard- Street, was married to a young Lady of Distinction and Fortune, and that the Day after Marriage she transferred to him 30,0001. On Tuesday Evening died at her Seat at Lang- ley in Hertfordshire, Eii7abeth Dutchess of Marl- borough, Mother to the present Duke. Her Grace was Daughter of Thomas Lord Trever, and was married to the late Duke the 23d of May, by whom she hath left Issue three Sons and two Daughters. They write from Vienna, that Gen. Laudohn having repeatedly represented, that it was impos- sible to attack the King of Prussia in his advan- tageous Poll, without running the greatest Risks, Orders have been sent to him to content himself with assiduously attending that Prince's Motions, and to send a large Detachment to the Army of Marshal Daun, who would, on being joined by it, begin his Operations in Saxony, whilst a Body of 25 or 30,000 Russians would endeavour to lay Siege to Breslau. By Letters from Hamburgh of the 28th ult. we are informed, that the Inhabitants of Hanover had sent their belt Effects to that Place, and that five Waggons with Money were arrived there from Berlin, the Inhabitants there being appre- hensive of a Visit from the Austrian or Russian Troops, before the Close of the Campaign, as it was assured that a Plan was formed by the Gene- rals Laudohn and Butterlin to send a considerable Body of Troops into Brandenburg.

' 2 Letters from Hamburgh assert very confidently, that as soon as the Czarina drops, which from her bad State of Health may be soon expected) the Grand Duke of Russia, her presumptive Heir, is. so much piqued against Denmark, for its Beha- viour in Relation to Holstein, he will declare War against his Danish Majesty, who, on his Part, is labouring to be prepared against all Events ; and hath given Orders to the Officers of his Troops in Holstein, not to absent themselves from their respective Corps, on any Account, nor to give any Furlows to the private Men. Advice is said to be come from Cassel, that the Allies had fired red hot Bullets, and the French Garrison had made several Sallies, and fought with great Courage and Resolution; but being as vigorously opposed, they were drove back again with great Slaughter, not without Some Loss on the Side of the Allies; and that M. Broglio had made Dispositions that portended a bloody Battle between the Armies very soon. A Gentleman, who arrived in Town on Friday from Ausbourg, and who had a Passport thro' the Theatre of War upon the Lower Rhine, says, that when he came in Sight of Broglio's Infantry, he was never more surprized in his Life ; instead of their appearing like a regular and well disci- plined Soldiery, they were like a Blanditti, in Rags and Despondency ; they were worn out with Fatigue, and some were so puny, young, and weak, that they were ready to sink under the Weight of their Arms; their dejected, meagre, and sickly Countenances shewed the great Hard- ships they suffer by Famine, and discover an Un- willingness for the Service ; in a Word, the wretched Appearance which this Corps make is beyond Conception. They write from the Hague, that they are well informed that there is still no good Understanding between Broglio and Soubise, and that it is their Distentions which have tendered the Operations of the two Armies so ineffectual. The Margrave of Heise- Cassel, on the ap- proach of the French to Brunswick, retired to Lubeck. They write from Francfort, that two Couriers, dispatched by M. Broglio, have fallen into the Hands of the Allies. The last Letters received at the Hague from Paris were filled with the Preparations for War. According to Letters from Paris, they have a Report, that in Consideration of the Cession of the Island of Minorca, Spain is to lend his Most Christian Majesty a Fleet of forty Ships of the Line, and to accommodate him farther with a Loan of forty Millions. They write from Amsterdam, that the French quitted Embden on the 27th of last Month, after committing there, and through the whole Princi- pality of East Friezland, the most shocking De- vastations, maltreating Persons of all Ages and Sexes; confining Protestant Clergymen upon Bread and Water, and making use of every Me- thod to extort Money ; so that it is said, they have carried off at least 200,000l. Sterling out of that Country. An ESSAY on SOLITUDE. BOTH Sages and Fools are unanimous in the Admiration of Solitude, hut both from dif- ferent Motives: To the one it affords Scope to Contemplation, to the other Shelter from Con- tempt. The Contented enjoy it, the Discontented seek it. The Guilty need it, the Innocent love it. To seek the Shades of Retirement, in order to admire more at Leisure the Works of the Cre- ation ; to grow thereby, as it were, familiar with the Conceptions of GOD ; to harmonise the Mind to moral Beauty, by frequently contemplating upon natural; and to anticipate, in some Measure, the Bliss of Heaven upon Earth, is a Resolution worthy a Being, whose Soul is an Emanation of that eternal Source of Life and Light, that crea- ted all Things. But I am afraid the general Af- fectation for the Love of Solitude proceeds from different Causes ; and that the Abode of the truly Good and Great, is too often made an Asylum for Pusillanimity, Avarice, and Ill- nature. Are there any disappointed in their worldly Views ? They immediately fly hither, as the properest Place to conceal the Poornefs of Mind, too little and base to bear up against Misfortunes. Is the Thuft of Gold the predominant Passion? Where can the Wretch find a more advantageous Situa- tion, in which he could work his Mole Hills ? Is the Mind distempered and dissonant to Society ? ' Tis here the Rebel to his Maker chooses to groul at Heaven, and gratifies the Anguish of his en- vious Soul, to behold its benignant Dew cherish- ing the Earth. One would imagine front the political Scribblers, who blunder about what they have no Conception of, that the only Defence of Liberty, and Happiness of Life, consisted in an unnatural Separation from the Rest of out Species. Is any Thing more plain, than that GOD designed Men should live together ? For what Inconve- niencies attend the solitary State of uncivilized Nature? What numberless Advantages accrue alone from Society ? To the former Condition every Man, whole Moroseness, or Want of social Virtues, secludes him from Society, is in a Man- ner reduced : To the latter Emoluments the Good are admitted by Nature. The great Honours that were paid to the full Legislators, ever, sometimes Deification itself, evince how sensible After- ages were of the Utility of civil Compacts; nay, even now, divested of the fabulous Accounts of Anti- quity, we pay a just Veneration to the Accounts of AMPHIOn, ORPHEUS, and the rest, who bro't Mortals from the Caves and Dens of Wildernes- ses, to cohabit in Cities, and enjoy the Blessings of mutual Aid and reciprocal Obligations. And yet with what Enthusiasm do some Retrogades in Perfection call out upon Solitude! What En- comiums don't they bellow upon original Bruta- lity ; and what Invectives don't they cast indi- rectly against all the polite Arts of Life ! Should we come to examine more nearly into the true Sentiments of these Monkish Preceptors, we should find that their Benevolence and Know- ledge are much less than even the narrow and for did Terms of their Doctrine will express ; for the Men who detect the World, are generally those that are justly detected by it, and can find no Sa- tisfaction after their Disappointment, but from a forced Retaliation of Contempt. ' Tis from hence we hear so many Murmurs against present Times ; ' tis from hence Retirement becomes the Den of Misery, which ought to be the Temple of Repose. Thus much has been said of the Abuse of Soli- tude, and from what Motives the unnatural Af- fections for an ill- placed Love of it proceeds; let us now examine the other Side of the Question, and consider wherein its Utility may truly consist, and who are the properest to enjoy it. That Solitude intrinsically in itself is neither Good nor Evil, but takes its Quality from the Disposition of its Votaries, would be needless to prove. The Sage who retires, not in a capricious Humour to detach himself from the World, but to contemplate for the Use of his Fellow- Creatures ; and the Moralist, who diverts himself a- while of the common Cares of Life, to view his own Heart abstractedly, that he may be better qualified to act relatively afterwards, are the only Persons, to whom the Shades of Retirement afford Pleasure or Instruction : To these they appear like the Mahometan Paradise, whole Groves are said to yield the Fruit of Knowledge and Peace; to others they become a Panda Monium, and ten thousand ugly Shapes are continually haunting them about. When the Philosopher enters this divine Re- gion, his Soul, as if he had passed a Transmigra- tion, glows with new- born Vigour, or rather as- sumes the State, describ'd by PLATO in the Phae- don, when it leaves the Body. The Silence of a rural Scene, the not unpleasing Horror of the varied Light and Shade in the Woods, the Whis- perings of the Trees, and the unbounded Prospect of Heaven above, call up Meditation as by a Charm, and all her Train of intellectual Atten- dants. Behold, she comes, awfully moving to his pausing Eye! See! Indolence and all her Court of selfish Vices recede from her Presence ! Virtue precedes her, Beauty and Truth attend on each Side, and the laurell'd Sisterhood of Arts and Sciences immediately follow. In her Hand she bears the faithful Record of all Ages, and presents to his View Examples of whatever Wis- dom, Valour and Benevolence inspired. Here he reads the Institutions of SOLON, there the Patrio- tism of CURTIUS, and there the glorious Death of SOCRATES; whilst Honour excites " a divine Emulation to imitate such godlike Examples.— These are the Comforts that Retirement affords the Good, and the Good alone ! for Despair and Horror whisper in every Breeze to the Wicked, and even Silence itself becomes an ever- tormenting Companion. I shall conclude this Essay with a small Descrip- tion of an ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic on this Subject. There was the Picture of a Mirror upon the Walls of a Temple at Memphis, in which several beautiful and several deformed Pic- tures were viewing themselves, which was called the Mirror of Solitude; the former seemed justly contented with their Appearances ; but the latter had no sooner beheld their own Resemblance, than their Curiosity was directly changed into the most violent Disgust to the faithful Instrument, that had given them what they never would have received otherwise, a true Knowledge of them- selves.

COLDS caught at this Season, lay the Foundation for the worst Disorders. The following Medicine cures them, and prevents the Danger, often by a single Dose. Pectoral Balsam of Honey. A new- discovered Remedy for Coughs and Consump- tions, all Phthisicky Complaints, Asthmas, and tough Phlegm, Difficulty of Breathing, Hoarseness, and Stuffings- up of the Lungs. The Author of the Pamphlet on the Virtues of Honey, has found its fragrant Balsam may be se- parated from the grosser Parts; and is then a most perfect Dissolvent for all the other Balsams. The Greeks knew this, and he has endeavoured to re- store the Practice. This Medicine will be a last- ng Proof of its Utility : A Tea- spoonful contains the Virtue of to Ounces of Honey, and never disa- grees with any Constitution; it converts a Glass of Water into the Nature and Quality of Asses Milk, with this balsamic Addition; it takes off the Hectic which attends a Consumption, recruits the Strength, allays the Cough, and heals and preserves the Lungs. If it be in the Power of Medicine to stop the Ravage of that cruel Disease which cuts off such Numbers of our Youth, this Balsam will effect it. It is sold by Mr. Leake, Bookseller, in BATH ; Mr. Baldwin, and Mr. Jackson, in London ; and Mr. Brown, in Bristol: In Bottles . of 3s. each, sealed and signed by the Author. Where may be had, 1. VALERIAN, Genuine Tincture of the TRUE ROOT. It is excellent beyond Parallel in all Nervous Disorders, Lowness of Spirits, Head- achs, Tremblings, vain Fears, and Wanderings of the Mind; in Convulsions, Hysteric Fits, Hypochon- driacal Complaints, and the Epilepsy. It prevents Sickness at the Stomach ; and takes off entirely that Sense of Fulness and Swelling of the Flesh in damp Weather, which so greatly affect Persons of lax Fibres. It gives a serene Cheerfulness of Disposition in the Place of those careless Horrors which so dreadfully op- press People who have weak Nerves.— Providence seems to have given the Plant in a peculiar Mariner to England, where those Disorders are most common. A Medicine not only for the Body, but the Mind. Sold in Pint Bottles at 10s. 6d. the Smaller 5s. and is. 6d. each 2. For the Certain CURE of the Scurvy, Essence of WATER- DOCK. There is no Question but this Plant will cure the most inveterate Scurvy: The Ancients all affirm it, and the Cures daily now performed by the Essence prove their Truth. It not only chars the Shin of Eruptions, bat mends the whole Constitution. Scorbutic Persons are subject to have bad Stomachs, and to be miserably low- spirited at Times; and many have these Com- plaints, not knowing the Scurvy is the Cause : This Medicine takes off the Faintness, creates an Appetite and good Digestion immediately, when that Distemper in their Blood is the Cause ; and gradually cleans the Skin, and prevents future Eruptions. The Afflicted may depend on these Effects. Price 3s. the Bottle, with Directions. 3. For the Gout and Rheumatism, the succeeding Day, working so kindly, and by Ways so familiar to Nature, that you'd bless yourself to feel its wonderful Effects: Therefore ' tis a Pity any Family should be unacquainted with its Virtues, all Persons of Sense agreeing in this one Point, that ' tis the very best of Purges to cleanse the Body of all gross and vicious Humours contracted by hard Drink- ing, Surfeits, Colds, Measles, or Small Pox. It defrays all Manner of Worms in Children or grown Persons, gives present Ease in the Cholic, expels Wind, hand cures the Scurvy, Dropsy, Itch, and all running Sores or Breakings out whatsoever; ' tis taken with great Success in the Black or Yellow Jaundice, King's Evil, Swelling of the Face or Gums, bad Breath, Deafness ( provided the Ears run) ; it cures the Head- ach, Vertigo, and Heartburn, helps Digestion, dissipates Vapours and sudden paintings, procures a ELIXIR of BARD AN A. The- Numbers who have found Relief from this Medi- cine prove that it has at least answered the Expecta- tion with which it was made public ; and fresh In- stances of its good Effects daily shew, that the Author is so happy as to have been of some Benefit to Man- kind. To prevent the Returns of the Gout has been found impossible ; but to relieve those who suffer, it is in our Power ; to reduce the Number, and shorten the Continuance of the Fits; and to alleviate the Pains of them: So much will be effected by His Medicine. And this is as much as a considerate Person would de- sire : In the Rheumatism, it it a certain and absolute Cure ; and the Disease never returns.

REPORT having been lately spread here, upon the Arrival of the last Letters from France, as if there was Reason to apprehend an immediate Rupture between our Court and that of Great- Britain ; we understand, that the Spa- nish Ministers, in a Conversation which they had lately with the Earl of Bristol, Ambassador Ex- traordinary from his Britannic Majesty, expressed their Concern thereat, and declared very explicitly to his Excellency, that on the Part of their Court, there was not the least Ground for any such Ap- prehensions, as the Catholic King had, at no Time, been more intent upon cultivating a good Correspondence with England, than in the present Conjuncture ; and, at the same Time, informed the Earl of Bristol, that Orders had been sent to Monsieur Manso, Governor of San Roque, to reprimand such of the Inhabitants under his Ju- risdiction, as had encouraged the illegal Protec- tion given to the French Privateer Row- Boats, under the Cannon of a Spanish Fort. Germany. NUREMBERG, Sept. 22. Count Goertz, the French Minister, demanded the 11th, of the Cir- cle of Franconia, two Millions of Rations to be delivered into their Magazines on the Mayn and on the Upper Rhine ; one Half the 30th of No- vember, the Remainder by the 31st of January, 1762. Holland. HAGUE, Oct. 6. By the latest Accounts re- ceived here from the Army in Hesse, which are of the 26th of September, Prince Ferdinand's Head- Quarters were at Wilhemstahl near Cassel. The Detachments, which the Hereditary Prince had sent along the Fulda and the Lahne, to de- stroy the Enemy's Magazines, have obliged Mar- shal Broglio to send a considerable Body of Troops to reinforce Lieutenant General de Stainville, who encamps under the Cannon of Cassel ; at which Place the Marshal himself was arrived, whilst the rest of his Army was encamped between Gottingen and the Werra. The French, after committing great Excesses in the Principality of East Friesland, had provo- ked the Peasants to rise in Arms against them, I which had obliged the first Corps to abandon the Country. They are, however, since returned in greater Numbers, and have put a Garrison of 800 Men into Embden. A Detachment of the French Light Troops has likewise entered Osna- brugge, where they have demanded the most heavy and exorbitant Contributions. The Russians are certainly marched to Posen ; and since they separated from General Laudohn, his Prussian Majesty has levelled the Intrench- ments about his Camp ; from which it is imagined, that he intends to remove soon from thence. LOT IX. 51 o A Freehold Estate, consisting of about 67 Acres of Meadow and Arable Ground, ly- - ing altogether, situate in - the Parish of Week and Abson, in the County of Glou- cester, and new lett by Lease for a Term of 7 Years to John Green, at the yearly Rent of — — — — — — — 45 0 And also a Close of Meadow Ground, called the Great Grove, adjoining to the last mentioned Estate, containing about 8 Acres, now in Hand, but last lett at per Ann. 10 0 LOT III. 550 A Freehold Estate, consisting of about 33.

HAMBURGH, Sept. 29. Gen. Laudohn, the 17th, attempted to attack one of the Wings of the Prussian Army, but received such a brisk Fire from a masked Battery, that he was glad to retire. F RANCFORT , [ on the Oder] Sept. 25. The Damage which General de Platen has done the Russians, by destroying the Magazines of Koblin and Kostin, is computed at 500,000 Crowns. The Prisoners which he took at the last Place amount to 1800 private Men and 43 Officers, be- sides Brigadier Schermatof; exclusive of which the Russians had between 3 and 400 Men and 13 Officers killed upon the Field of Battle. Our Loss did not exceed 200 Men. Oct. 2. The Light Troops of the Allies scour all Hesse, and carry off a great Quantity of Pro- visions and warlikeStores, destined for the French ; among other valuable Captures, they lately seized forty Carts loaded with Wine, and a Box con- taining 200 Gold Watches, and other Jewels and Toys. France. TOULON, Sept. 22, An epidemical Distemper hath, in two Months, carried off one- third of the Inhabitants of this Place. Every Day presents some dead, others dying, and others taken ill.— There are few Families in which two or three have not been seized with this Distemper. The Viaticum is carried out every Hour. The following Addresses of the Mayor, Alder- men, and Common Council of the City of BATH have been presented to their Majesties by the Rt. Hon. the Lord Viscount Ligoner, and the Right Hon. William Pitt,. Esq. their Representatives in Parliament: Which Addresses their Majesties were pleased to receive very graciously. To the KING's Most Excellent Majesty. WE, the Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council, of the City of BATH, in Com- mon Council assembled, beg Leave, among the rest of your Majesty's Subjects, to congratulate your Majesty upon the joyful Event of your Mar- riage, the only Circumstance wanting to compleat our Happiness : For having no further Wish, bles- se d as we are under your mild and gracious Go- vernment, but that our Posterity might continue London, October 10. In the beginning of the War, before Mr. P-- t came into Power, we lost the Island of Minorca, by the usual Incapacity and Pusillanimity of the foul Dregs of Sir R-- t W ' s soul and pusil- lanimous Administration. After Mr. P— t came to have the Direction of the War, we took Cape- Breton, All Canada, Senegal and Goree in Af- rica, Guadalupe, St. Dominico, Pondicherry, Belleisle, and probably Martinico ; not to men- tion the greater Half of the French Navy de- stroyed by ours. All these ( except Canada) M. Bully insisted should be restored to France. Mr, Pitt infilled that they should not. M. Bussy went away. Mr. Pitt has resigned. From the Inactivity of our Fleets for these many Months past ( since the Reduction of Belleisle) one would suspect there is some Foundation for a Report, that a certain Person should say, that his Advice had been disregarded for some Time past. On Thursday evening Alderman Beckford ar- rived in Town, and Yesterday had a Conference with Mr. Pitt. 3 Thursday there was a great Court and a Grand Council at St. James's Same Day both Houses of Parliment met at Westminster, and were further prorogued by Com- mission to the 3d of November , when they are to fit for the Dispatch of Business. It is said Admiral Rodney is appointed to com- mand on an Expedition in the West Indies, under whom two Commanders will also act, and that he ill soon fail with the Marlborough, and some Ships of the Line, and Frigates. Two Regiments are, we hear, to be raised in Ireland, and Commissions are sent there for that Purpose, All the Artificers in the King's Yards are or- dered to work double Tides ( Sunday not excep- ted) to fit out the Men of War. Many false and scandalous Suggestions ( with Design to inflame the Minds of the People) ha- ving been inserted in the public Papers of Yester- day, representing among other Things, that M. de Bussy is returning here soon, and that a Peace would be concluded with the French, on any Terms they should offer ; we can, from good Au- thority, affirm, that there is not the least Foun- ation for these infamous Reports : There appears, the Contrary, so little Desire at present, of concluding Peace, on any Terms which can be considered as disadvantageous or dishonourable to this Country, that we are allured there are Pre- parations, now making for carrying on the War with even greater Vigour than ever. It is rumoured that M. Buss'y, the French Mi- nister so well improved his Time while he was here, that he negotiated a very considerable Loan for the French King at 10 per Cent, well secured to the Lenders, to be paid off, both Principal and and Interest, within twelve Months after the War is ended. Many Persons are suspected on this Occasion, but it would not be prudent to point out any of them till we have better Authority than mere Rumour. If the Terms of Peace had been agreed to, M. Bussy was to be veiled with the Character of Mi- nister Plenipotentiary : And he was so confident of succeeding, that he had ordered a Card from a Copper- Plate to be work'd with this Title, which was finished and delivered. There being no Letters from Hanover by this Day's Mail, it is conjectured that the French have cut off the Communication between Holland and that Place. Letters from Pars by the way of Holland, say, that to judge from the Preparations for War in all Parts of France one would imagine that the Ministers were meditating the Conquest of whole Kingdoms. Each Minister is doubly diligent in his proper Department, and by Means of the Re- sources which have been furnished by the Credit of Mess. de Montmartel, and de la Borde, the People will not be oppressed with new Taxes, those two Gentlemen having promised to supply the King monthly with 20 Millions of Livres. The Negotiation was broke off ( these Letters say) because England insisted, before she would consent to the Cession of any Part of her Con- quests, that France should renounce her Alliance with the Court of Vienna. these Letters also mention the intended Marriage of the King of Spain with a Daughter of France. We learn from the Hague, that many Inhabi- tans of East Friseland having sent their best Ef- fects to a Dutch Frontier Town, M. Conslans, the French Officer who commanded East Friseland, sent a Trumpet to the Duch Governor, to demand these Effects, and threaten'd to make use of Force in cafe of a Denial. The Governor immediately sent to the Duke of Wolfenbuttel, to know whe- ther he should repel Force by Force, in case the French should proceed to Acts of Violence. ____ What Orders were sent to him we have not yet learnt. There is a Project on Foot in Holland, for which the Undertakers propose to solicit a Licence from the Dutch West- India Company, for a Voyage into the South Sea, from which great Advantages are expected, grounded on the Lights given them by an Englishman, who has resided long in diffe- rent Parts of America. [ Englishmen are ex- cluded from trying their Fortune in the South Sea by the Charter to the East- India Company.] On the 18th past a Fire broke out, by the Care- lessness of a Cooper, in the Town of Osterbourg, the Old Marche of Brandenburgh, by which the Church and 270 Houses were burnt down. On Monday last as his Royal Highness the Duke of York was reviewing the Wiltsihire Regiment at Winchester Camp, while the Regiment was charg- ing, under a brisk Firing of Artillery from the Flanks, his Horse suddenly took Fright, being struck, as was supposed, by a Piece of Wadding from one, of the Cannon, and threw his Rider ; but providentially his Royal Highness received no Hurt, and in the Evening danced at the Ball. Yesterday was married at South AudleyChapel, Lord Willoughby de Brooke, to lady Louisa North, Daughter of the E. of Guildford. Yesterday a Woman went into the Shop of Mr. Bennet, a Silversmith in the Borough, under a Pretence of Buying a Stone Ring ; but not liking any that was shewn her, ( lie gave an Order for one to be made, with a Direction where to send it. The Shopkeeper, in writing the Direction, saw something glitter under her Hand, which raised a Suspicion. She took her Leave, and went out of the Shop ; they pursued her, and challenged her with a Buckle, which she owned, and said, " Lord bless me, I have taken it up by Mistake with my Handkerchief;" they asked her for the Fellow Buckle, which she owned to have, and that by Mistake she had. put it into her Pocket with her Snuff- box ; they immediately searched her, and found in her Pocket a Gold Stone Ring, two Sil- ver Stone Stone- buckles, and a Metal Ring. She was committed to Prison immediately. London. S T. J AM e S'S, Oct . 9. The Right Honourable William Pitt having resigned the Seals into the King's Hands, his Majesty was this Day pleased to appoint the Earl of Egremont, to be one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State. And in Consideration of the great and important Ser- vices of the said Mr. Pitt, his Majesty has been graçiously pleased to direct, that a Warrant prepared for granting to the lady Heller Pitt his Wife, a Barony of Great- Britain, by the Name, Stile, and Title, of Baroness of Chatham to herself, and of Baron of Chatham to her Heirs Male ; and also to confer upon the said William Pitt, Esq. an Annuity of Three Thousand Pounds Sterling, during his own Life, and that of lasty Hester Pitt, and their Son John Pitt, Esq. This Day Earl Temple, Keeper of the King's PrivySeal, resigned the laid Seal into his Majesty's Hands. The King has been pleased to grant unto Shute Barrington, Clerk, Master of Arts, the Place and Dignity of a Canon of the Cathedral Church of Christ, in the University of Oxford ; the same, being vacant by the Decease of Doctor Paul For rester, late one of the Canons of the said Cathe- dral Church. His Majesty hath been pleased to order, that the Forms of Prayer used in the late Reign for thé Accession- Day, the fifth Day of November, the thirtieth of January, and the twenty- ninth of May, shall continue to be used without any other Alteration than that which was lately appointed in the Prayer for the Royal Family. to be ruled by your Majesty's- Desendants. Your Royal Nuptials, while they promise that Blessing, have in the mean Time, secured the Prosperity of the present Age, by the Choice you have made of our Illustrious Confort. Your loyal Subjects, Sir, have an Interest in every Thing that relatés to your Majesty's Welfare. Your Confort is their Queen, and your Children are the Stock and Family of their Kings : It is for them therefore as well as for yourfelf, that your Ma- jesty, in the Choice you have made of our Excel- lent Queen has provided for your own and your People's Prosperity at the same Time. This Pa- ternal Regard to your loving Subjects deserves the highest Return of Gratitude, for tailing to the Partnership of your throne, a Protestant Princess of Illustrious Birth, and adorned with every Virtue and Accomplishment. Permit us, therefore, to approach your Majesty, and to augurate from this Auspicious Union, a Reign of Domestick Happiness, and a Succession of Heroes to bless and to adorn Posterity ; and we do most devoutly pray, that this Scene of Felicity may remain uninterrupted, and that your Illus- trious Progeny may reign over these Kingdoms till Time shall be no more. To the QUEEN'S Most Excellent Majesty. P ERMIT us , Madam, the Mayor, Aldermen and Common Council of the City of BATH, pay this first Offering of our Duty to your Ma- jesty, and to join with the rest of our Fellow Sub- jects, in celebrating your Majesty's Nuptials with the best of Kings, our most gracious Sovereign. When we reflect upon your illustrious Birth, your Religion truly Protestant ; those natural and acquired Endowments, both of Mind and Person, wherewith your Majesty is so eminently adorned, we are persuaded, that if your faithful Subjects had been consulted, they would have addressed your Majesty to have been their Queen, with the same Ardour that his Majesty has courted you to be his Confort : But the King's Goodness and Wisdom have prevented the Wishes of his People, by placing your Majesty upon the Tyrone, to be the Pattern of every Female Virtue to your Sex, while his own excellent Perfections are the best and highest Examples to ours. So ruled, and so instructed, your Subjects have Reason to expect a general Improvement of Man- ners among the People, and to see Virtue become fashionable, by the. Reflexion of its Brightness from that high Place where your Majesties are enthroned. May the Joy of this present Time continue un- altered during both your Lives ; and may your own natural Affection to each other be equalled by nothing but the Zeal and Affection of your Sub- jects to both your Majesties.

LETTERS from the Commandant of Glogau of the 21st, confirm the Ac- count of General Platen's Expedi- tion into Poland, with this Addition, that the Five Thouaand Waggons, taken and destroyed the 15th by the Prussians, were loaded with Provisions of all Sorts ; and that they had taken besides, a great Number of Black Cattle, and Sheep, which were going along with the Convoy to the Russian Army. Sept. 29. The last Accounts from Silesia say, that alter the Departure of Marshal Butterlin with the Gross of the Russian Army, Generals Laudohn and Czenichew had withdrawn some of their advanced Posts, and approached to the Passes in the Mountains. General Romanzow having attacked with Suc- cess a Redoute which covered one of the Flanks of the Prince of Wurtemberg's Camp, it was apprehended chat his Highness might be obliged to quit his advantageous Position, by which Means Colberg would have beep exposed to the greatest Danger, being attacked at once by Sea and by Land : But the last Letters from Pomera- ma say, that the Russians having, oil the 19th, made a second Attack upon the Prince's Entrench meats, they had been repulsed with very consi- derable Loss; and it was believed that General I laten, with the Reinforcement under his Com- mand, would arrive in Time to save the Town. In Saxony every Thing is still quiet. Oct 3. The last Accounts from Stettin are of the 25th of September, which give good Ground to hope, that the Prince of Wurtemberg would be able to hold out ' till the Arrival of General Platen, which was expected might be on the 29th or 30th of last Month. In the Account the Prince gives of the Attack the Russians made upon his Entrenchments on the 19th of September, it ap- pears, they were repulsed with very great Loss of Men and Officers, the Whole computed at no less thin Three Thousand; and that the Prussians recovered the Redoubte they had lost the Day be- fore. The Letters from Stettin say, that another Attempt was made on the 22d, which likewise failed ; but they mention no Particulars. The last Letters, from Silesia were of the 27th past when his Prussian Majesty's Head Quarter was at Pultzen, about one Mile behind Scuweid- nitz near the Mountain's; which new Position is supposed owing to some Movement the Enemy had made ; of which however we have no particu- lar Accounts. Holland. HAGUE, Oct 9. Prince Ferdinand Continued to have his Head Quarters at Wilbemltadt near Castel on the 28th past. There are no certain Particulars of What has lately passed in those Paris. The Prince of Soubise is still encamped at Coesseldt. The Cavalry of the French King's Household has received Orders to repass be Rhine, and to return to France. ST. JAMES'S, Oct. 12. His Majesty having been pleased to appoint the Right Hon. Charles Earl of Egremont to be one of his Majesty's prin- cipal Secretaries of State, his Lordship was this London, October 13, It is confidently said that Lord Hardwicke will succeed Earl Temple as Lord Privy Seal. Several more Resignations and Promotions are soon expected to take Place at Court. It is said some fresh Overtures have been made to our Court from that of France, concerning the Terms of Peace. It is now said that all our Forces are to be re- called from Germany, and that the King of Prussia is to have an additional Subsidy instead of Men. A Letter from a Prussian Officer in Lower Po- merania, Sept. 24., says, " In the Night between the 18th and 19th Inst. Gen. Romanzoss made a brisk Attack on our lntrenchments before Colberg, and gained some Advantage. Next Day the Prince of Wirtemberg sell suddenly, with his Horse, on the Flank of the Russians, and seized a Battery of 14. Cannon, which he turned against them, and made such Havock, that their Loss in Killed, Wounded, and Prisoners, amounts to at least 3000 Men. The Enemy have since turned the Siege into a Blockade, and as the Season of the Year will not permit their Fleet to keep the Sea much longer, they will probably be obliged to drop their Design against that Place." We learn from Petersburgh, that Gen. Count Tottleben has been convicted of High Treason, by a Council of War. The Confusions in Poland encrease every Day. The Spanish Ministers are every where busy ne- gotiating, with what View Time only can disco- ver. The King of Sardinia augments his Forces, puts all his Fortresses in a State of Defence, and whatever Turn the Affairs of Italy may take, it is thought he will be no Sufferer. It is the Opinion of the shrewdest Politicians, the King of Prussia is on the Point of opening the Campaign. They write from Brett, that Orders have been received to fit out all the Vessels in that Port; and that the Diadem of 74. Guns, and two Frigates, were ready to fail out of the Harbour into the Road. The English Squadrons continue before Rochfort and Rochelle, without attempting any Thing. According to the last Letters from Toulon, the Distemper which made such Havock in that Town decreases daily ; and we expect that, as soon as the cold Weather sets in, it will entirely cease. Letters from Madrid advise, that the Spanish Fleet will be augmented with twelve Ships of the Line, to be purchased in Sweden. Saturday Morning the Right Hon.

Beauclerk of Lafausille's Regimen of Foot, Son of the late Lord William Beauclerk is appointed Colonel of one of the Regiments that is to be forthwith raised.

A FUNERAL REFLECTION. BEHOLD ! how quiet there old GRIPUS lies! The Shroud and Coffin now js all his Store, His Brain no longer rack'd with endless Schemes, How to add House to House and Land to Land. His Tongue harangues not on the frugal Ways And artful Methods that he took to thrive. His Heart now beats no more : Clos'd are those Eyes, That heretofore with eager Transport view'd The shining Metal into Mountains rise, But never knew to shed one pitying Tear. Those Hands, so ready and expert to count Int'rest on Int'rest nor are Farthing miss, Lie useless by his Side, the Nerves relax'd; Fill them with Gold, alas ! they will not clench. His Feet, so swift in the Pursuit of Gain, Now here, now there, as Bargains led the Way, A Thread of Worsted fast as Iron binds. Within the Limits of four scanty Boards See, see the Man, whose daring Genius grafp'd At large Domains and immense Sums of Cash. Mortal, reflect, reckon aright, be wife, And bound thy Wishes to the Human Span, Singe to command one Hour is not in Gold, 4
