VOL. IV. THE' N* 196. EDINBURGH ADVERTISER. From TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12. to FRIDAY, NOVEMBER L • 765. The BANK- NOTE ; or, T^ THREE FRIENDS. An Oriental Talc. . " N that mediocrity of condition ' which, Iin thefe times, Virtue principally chuf- es for her refidence, equidiftant frem the two clafles of the low and the high mob, '. tere were three friends, Philibert, Lionel, and Anfelm. Philibert, on a time, under a pecuniary embnrr ailment, after fome hefitation to • which of his two friends he fhould apply, and lefs afraid of being denied by either than of offending him to whom he fhould not have re courfe, was, at length determin- ed, rather by a neceffity of determining than by any caufe of preference, to fend to Lio- nel. Juft at that junfture, Lionel was actual- ly on the point of paying away a bank- note of an hundred pound, which was all that he had in readinefs by him, and which he neverthelefs fent away, without demur, to the relief of his friend. Philibert, on receipt of it, was preparing fo get it changed, when a meiiage come? * to him from 4' ifelm, on an occafion of much the fame nature ; upon which, with- out ftanding to coofider his « SR ut. d n I it, he difpatched away to him the bank- f kettle drums belonging to the artillery note he had that inftant received. As it was once intended that the funeral of his late Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, ihould be conducted with all military honours, we think nothing can give our readers a better idea of it, than the following account of the funeral pro- ceffion of the Great Duke of Marlbo- rough, in the reign of George I. THE ninth of Auguft, about half an hour after twelve, the proceffion began, and paired along the road, thro' St. James's Park, and the Upper Park, to Hide Park corner, thence to Piccadilly, down St. James's ftreet, through Pall- Mail, and by Charing Crofs, thro' King- ftreet, to Weft- minfter Abbey. A proper difpofition had been made of fuch of the forces, as were drawn from the camp in Hide Park to attend the funeral. The firft regiment of his Majefty's foot- guards was drawn up in the Upper Park, with their right next to Buckingham- houfe; the reft, both foot and horfcguards, and horfe grenadiers, were drawn up facing the road thro" that park, oa the left of the firft regiment of foot- guards, in the order* thCy were to file off after each other. A - Brought over Hawbit/. ers Three pounders Six- pounders Kettle- drum 3 j horfes. 16 drivers. 6 • 2 . 8 2 63 4 4 1 27 Scarce had At/ elm fo much as taken no- tice of the amount, before he received a requeft of afliftancc from Lionel, who had been diftreffed by that which he had af- forded to Philibert. Upon this Anfelm al- fo giving to his friend's wants the prefer- ence over his own, away flies the bank- note, in this third circulation, to its firft owner, who was not a little furprifed at this return of it to him, as, by the number, Lionel knew it to be the identical note that he had fent to Philibert. How then came it back to him by the way oi An fit Im ? Ay, there was the myftcry. To clear up which, away he polls to Anfihn, who naturally told him the caufe of his having received it from Philibert. To him they im- mediately proceeded together. The ' explanation you may be lure could not be very unfavourable to the drawing ftiil clof- er, if that had been needful, the ties of their commutual friendfhip. Nay, I would . not fwear, that, in their having given each other fuch proof of their iincerity, they did not enjoy almoft as great pleafure as fome more fafhionahle friends would have taken • while hugging themfelves on the having- eluded an application of that kind, efpecial: ' Iy if it fhould have been to the getting thereby rid of a friend capable of fuch a horrid unfriendly action, as that of at- tempting to borrow money of a friend. train of artillery, confining of fifteei; piec£ § ,.

It is faid, that 111 the mean time, an agreement is made between our Republic and the re- bels, for a reciprocal reftitution of prifon- ers of war. Paris, OH. 28. The deputies of the ftatei of Britanny, on the part of the Nobleffe, are juft exiled : the Marquis de Pirey is fent to Brive- la- Gaillarde, and the Count de'Kerquefec into Poictou.

A veifel arrived from Fernambucco at Lifbon, the 10th of this month, brought advice thither, that the inhabitants of the inferior partof Paraguay, had made fome attempts to render themfelves mafters of the river de la Plata, and that the Portu- guefe commandant was endeavouring to hinder them.

AMERICA. Jamaica, Augnfl 2. Our aflembly, which was in March hift prorogued ito Septem- « her, was on the arrival of the packet from England, diftbi'ved, and a new aflembly fumrponei to rwreB the 13th inftant • and as moil- of the old members are returned, it is expe& cd the old difpute will be revived, and another d'tfrokition be the confequence. A man of War has been obtained from the admiral to fail for England the 20th, which in all probability will carry home an ac- count of the proceedings of the affembly. At prefent politics ingiofs the attention of every body. Charles- Tmvii, Sept. 4. By the proceed- ings of the aflembly of Barbadoes, publifh- ed in the Barbadoes Mercury, it appears, that letters had been received by Governor Pinfold from Admiral TyreU and Captain Knowler of the Milford, giving accounts that the faid Captain being fent to obferve what the French were doing at Cayenne and the Triangles, he difcovered feveral fiiips of war and other vcifels in the river Cayenne, and alhore a great number of tents and fome buildings, and imagined the French were laying up a very great ma- gazine fupplied from North America, Cap- tain Knowler having feized a brigantine from Philadelphia cleared out for Bar- badoes, with provilions and naval ftores, but, by the invoices and Sills of lading, bound for Cayenne, and had letters to the French governor there. The faid brigan- tine was condemned in Barbadoes for illi- cit trade, and by papers found on board it appears, that Meflrs. John Remfon and Thomas Rich of Philadelphia, have enter- ed into contrail for fupplying the French at Cayenne. Charles- Tototi, Sept. 11. The aflembly of Barbadoes hath direct- ed all the papers relating to the French en- terprizes at Cayenne and the Triangles, as well as thofe concerning the Philadelphia contratt for fupplying the French, to be tranfmitted home to the agent for that Ifland, with orders to lay them before his Majefty's minifters. LONDON. Yefterday his Grace the DukeofNew- raftle was at Richmond, and had the ho- nour of a long conference with his Majefty. As the ifles called the Triangles, near the continent of America, have always been deemed neutral by European powers, the late behaviour of the French in fettling therein is contrary to treaty; and it is faid that expoftulations will be immediate- ly made thereon - by our court. Private letters' from Breft advife, that orders had juft been received at the office of the Intendant of the Marines, to get ready for fea, with all expedition, five men of war of the line, three frigates, and feve- ral tranfports, as ftore- lhips. Yefterday there was a cabinet council at St. James's, at which his Majefty was pre- fent, but there was 110 levee. IJis Majef- URGH ADVERTISER FOR ty returned in the afternoon to Richmond. On Sunday the Hon. Capt. Weymes, of Richmond, was married to the widow of the late George Dimmock, Efq; of Barnes, with a fortune of 12,000 1. Yefterday orders were iflued out for the interment of his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, as a Prince of the Biood Royal, on Saturday night; in confequence of which, the Board of Works began yef- terday to ereift a platform from the Houfe of Peers to tbe fouth door of Weftminfter Abbey for that purpofe. His Royal Higli- nefs's corpfe is to be removed this evening from his houfe in Upper Grofvenor- ftreet to the Painted- Chamber, there to lie in ftate till interment. Tuefday all the livery fervants, belong- ing to his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, received notice that they are difplaced. We hear his Royal Highnefs had up- wards of ' forty livery fervants at Newmar- ket, men and boys. Yefterday the tickets for the enfuing ftate- lottery began to be cut at the lottery- office, Whitehall, in order to be put into the wheel. Several perfons were detected in ftealing the effeifts of the unhappy fufterers, by the late fire in Bilhopfgate- ftreet, who were fent to the Compters by the fitting Magiftrates. The populace having feized one of them, threw him into the flames ; but, by the interpofition of a peace officer, they dragged him to the Poultry Compter. Orders are given not to fupply the foot- guards attending on duty in the neigh- bourhood of the late fire in Bifhopfgate- ftreet, & c. with fuch plenty of liquor; fome of them being fo intoxicated, laft night be- fore nine o'clock, as to occafion many dis- orders. The Grefliam committee are determined to accommodate as many of the fufferers as they can, with part of the Royal Ex- change, above flairs. , One of the fchemes, which his Royal • Highnefs the late Duke of Cumberland had in view to accomplifh, was, that of an ad- ditional pay to the men of the three regi- ments of foot- guards: he eonfidered the prefent pay of that brave corp, as too fmall to fubfift upon in this metropolis; and, it is faid, was endeavouring to have it raifed from eightpence to one ihilling per day: which indeed, confidering the price of provifions, at the time that pay was fix- ed, and what the increafed price is at pre- fent, a fold. ier could then have fubfifted much better on his eightpence, than at prefent on a Ihilling.

VOLUME SECONDliegins with a difterta- tion on the bu fine ft of the counting- houfe, wherein the pra& ice of the moft judicious and experienced, in the moft eflential branch- es, and the moft eftablifhed maxims, are laid open to the young trader, in order that he may be fccared from rufhing preci- pitantly into fchemes that may prove dan- gerous jto an adventurous, btrt unexperien- ced youth.

BooK- KEEPiNG inPRACTiCE; - where- in the rules, in the preceding part arc appli- ed and exemplified, in feveral fpecimens of books, exhibiting a variety of branches, E R FOR 1765. Nov. is. digefted and connefted as in real trade, and kept according to the moft approved prac- tice. Here the method of keeping accounts with regard to exchange, and company- concerns, is rendered eafy and practical, being exemplified in general and particular books, v,- herein the moft complicated tranf- a< ftions are introduced and explained, fo as to render the practice eafy. To thefe longer ipecimens are added, five queftions in com- pany- accounts, three of which are balanced, the other two left to eiercifc the learner. The fubfidiary books are alfo exemplified, in a form more agreeable to practice than any thing hitherto publilhed. In both thefe parts, the author hath add- ed obfervations where- ever he thought they might be ufeful to the unexperienced. 3, Tlie method t> f drawing, remitting, negociating, and recovering bills of ex- change, promiffory notes, inland bills, and all fuch conveyances of property among merchants ; with the laws and cuftoms con- cerning them, in England, Scotland, and all the trading kingdoms and ftatcs in Europe - 4. A brief view of the Britiih cuftoms; or, The Britilh- mcrchant's book of rates; ex hibiting the penalties and imports to which he is fubjefted, and the privileges, boun- ties, and drawbacks to which he is entitled at importation and exportation; digefted in a method fo clear and intelligible, that the calculation of the duties on any quanti- ty may be made by praftice as ealily as the price of goods by the piece; founded on adts of parliament relating thereto, to this prefent year. This work has been univcrfally efteemed by very good judges, and is adapted to all capacities. The young pradtitioner in buft- nefs will find great benefit and advantage by confulting thefe volumes, and fuch as have been long in trade will alfo have the pleafure of finding many things of general tiie, which are not to be met with in any books of this kind. The author, by ha- ving frequent intercourfe with gentlemen in bufinefs, has ftudied to adapt all his rules to the p raft ice of merchants, as well for wholefale dealers, as to anfwer retailers; fo that, from the favourable reception this work has met with from the public, in coming fo foon to a fecond edition, he has the plea- fure to fee his labours have not been in vain. The Monthly Review for February 1765 gives the following character of this work. " Wc do not remember to have feen any ' work fo well calculated for qualifying young gentlemen for the counting- houfe, as that now heforc us. The author feems to have more comprehenfive views, more enlarged and liberal notions', than the generality of writers upon the fubjedt, as will apear to the intelligent reader, from a fliort view of his elfay on the education of a young gen- tleman intended for the counting- houfe, prefixed to the firft volume."
