NF. W- YORK, May 8. A Play being advertifed to be a£ ted on Monday Evening laif, gave great Offence to many of the Inhabitants of this City, who thought it highly improper that fuch Entertainments fhould be exhibited at this T i m e of public Diftrefs, when Number* of poor People can fcarcely find Means of Subfiftence; whereupon a Multitude of Perfons rufhed into the Houfe with Noife and T u m u l t, juft as the Play began, when the Audience efcaped, and; the Populace immediately demolifhed the Theatre, and carried its Ruins, together with the Scents, to the Common, and there burnt them. i l o n t > c t v 3 i u l g 1. Sunday the Rev. Dr. Henry Stebbing, Preacher at G r a v ' s - l n n , preached before their Majefties, feveral of the Royal Family and Nobility, at the Chapel Royal. T h e Right Honourable the Earl of Hertford carried ' the Sword of State to and from Chapel. ' v~ Letters from Bengal, dated the 7th of November laft, brought by a Dutch Indiam. tn, gn'e. aji Account that Lord Clive was, perfectly v . d l , and that every Thing was quiet and prolperous there. They likewife mention the Arrival of the Grenville and Speke Indiamen. By the Hannah, Captain Jarvis, who is arrived at Dover from Bofton, after a Paflage of twenty- fix Days, there is an Account from Harford in Connecticut, that on their receiving the News of the Repeal of the Stamp A£ t, they provided a large Quantity of Gunpowder, in order t o make Fire - Works for Rejoicing, and while they were preparing for it, the Powder by fome Accident took Fire, and blew up the whole Place. Twenty- feven People were killed, and feveral others had their Legs and Arms broke, which threw a great Damp 011 the Rejoicing. T h e y write from Herefordfhire, that there is fuch a Profpeft of a prodigious Quantity of Applas there this Summer, that it is thought above Half of them muft be thrown away. An Information, we hear, for wearing Cambrick, was this Day laid before Sir John Fielding, againft the Lord Chancellor, the Lord Chief Jutlice of the Common Pleas, Judge Clive, and Judge Alton, who appeared by their refpeiStive Council. Yefterday their Majefties, the Duke of Gloucefter, and the Princefsof Brunfwick, dined with Prince Henry Frederick, at Beaumont Lodge, near Windfor. W e are affured, that fome Emiflaries of France have been extremely aiflive amongft fome of the Sailors who went roucd the Word with Commodore Byron, in order to obtain Accounts of our new Difcoveries in the South Seas ; which, it is faid, are likely to prove of infinitely more Importance to the Nation than has yet been made known to the Public. i like a Globe of Fire, which di • n .. two Parts, and took different a - ns Ex., ail of a Letter from LIMOGES, ( in France) June 9. " Laft Monday ( the Octave of the feft ! of the Holy Sacrament) we had a vio: 1 Thunder Storm, when the Lightnir , a! on the Church of St. Michel- des Lit which was greatly damaged ; but the . ople had juft happily quitted t'he Chi. , ii, to follow the Proceflion. It appeal \>. JN , ^ . , . . . , „ Dr.-;.' •"• r. s Holes of a Foot Diameter were piade through the Brick- work of the Church, and large Iron Bars inapt afunoer. A great Dog was killed by the Side of a Beggar ; a Countryman's Cloaths were burnt on his Back, and a Hat on a little Boy's Head, without their receiving any Damage : T h e Hat of another Boy was alfo burnt in his Hand whilft he was ufing the Holy- Water. The other Part fell on a Houfe in the Faxbourg des Arenes, fix hundred Yards from the Church ' of St. Michael, and broke a Beam that was fixteen ' Inches Square, overthrew a Bed, fnapt an Iron Spit, and fhivered three Girders to Pieces; after which entering a T u j y b f Coals, they were all pulverized and fcattered about the Floor. The Shock which this Houfe received was fo great, that the Stair- Cafe is put three Inches' out of its Level, and all the Parts are disjointed." The Hon. Sir Charles Coote, Knight of the Bath, and Admiral Cornift), have petitioned his Majefty for a Share to themfclves, Officers and Men, of the E f - fects taken at Pondicherry, on the Coaft of Coromandel, and at Karakal on' the Coaft of Olixa, by thofe two greSt Commanders in 1761, equally with the Eaft- " India Company's Officers and Soldiers, which was refufed in India., and has- not as j e t 0 obtained in England. Adv.' c. is faid to be received,, that the S p a i n . are preparing to fetid out a Fleet of Obfeivation to the South- Seas. The gigantic Inhabitants of the Ifland difcovc: : by Commodore Byron, had not, it s f a i j , a ftngle offenfive Weapon amongft them, but, though drefled in Skins, had generally Bracelets of Gold upon their Arms, and were attended each with a Dog of uncommonly large Size. On Friday there was a Hearing before his Honour the Mafter of the Rolls, concerning a Legacy of about i o , o o o l . left by the late Sir Williarh Pynfent to the Right Hon. William Pitt^ Efq. which was contefted by for/ ie of the Relations of the deceafed Baronet; and after many learned Arguments of the moft eminent Counfel, it was determined in Favour of Mr. Pitt. A few Days fince Henry Wakelyn, Efq. of Epfom in Sur; y, threw himfelf out of his Chamber Window at that Place, and was fo much bruifeJ, that he died foon after : r h e C a u f e o f this unhappy Affair is not known as he is reputed to have died worth Ten Thoufand Pounds. Yefterday a Caufe came on before Lord Camden, at Guildhall, on an A£ tion brought by an inferior Officer againft a fuperior one, for trying him by a Court- Martial in the Eaft Indies, confining him in Irons, & c. when a Verdidt was given for the Plaintiff, with 400!. Damages, and Cofts of Suit. It is faid a certain Embaffador ftrongly difavows any Knowledge of his Court in the late Infiilts committed on the Englifh Flag in the Weft- Indies, and has promifed Indemnification. We heat the Statue of the good and patriotick Mr. Pitt, will be erected in every Province in America. T h i s Day the additional Duty of Sixpence per Gallon on all foreign Brandies imported, took Place. As the lateft Advices from the Eaft Indies, which are dated Nov. 7, take not the leaft Notice of A Revolution in fndoftan, or the Empire of the Great Mogul ; the . Account publifhed in the Paris G a z e f ' e of the 20th Inftanf, was probably infsrtcd tor fome private P u i p o f e; t^ e Empire. of Indoftan is faid to eomsiiT forty Millions of Souls, thirty of whom are Gentoos or Pagans, and ten Millions of Mahometans, all moft zealoufly devoted to the DefcenJants qf Tamerlane. It is now faiu that Mr. Pitt will not accept of any Departs, nt in the Adminiftration, hut that a new Mi i ; fotming, who will have the Santtio.. . f his Approbation, fome of whom are f r om remote Parts of the Country, and have never breathed the contaminated Air of the Court, who, notwithftanding, have Virtue and Abilities which will aftonifh and cover with Shame all the Sons and Minifters of Corruption. It is faid that a great Perfon's Refignation of a high Employment, was not owing to fuch a virtuous honourable Motive, as the being unfuccefsfu! in endeavouring to procure the Reconciliation of an unfortunate Ex; i e to his offended sovereign ( as was aflerted fome T i m e ago in the public Pap-.' rs) Th s is well known by thofe that are in the Secret of Affairs, and the Public will not remain long in Ignorance of the real Caufe of this anil other late Refignations. T h i s Morning Difp- atches were received from their Excellencies the Lords Juftices of Ireland. - Yefterday, between Six and St ; n the Evening, there was a molt v. Storm of Thunder and Lightening, attended with fuch inceiii'i. r Rain, as to render many of the Roads about London for fome T i m e impaflable. Highgate- Hill, quite down to Hollowa appeared as if it had never been an high Road, there not being the leaft Mark of the Wheel of a Carriage, or Track of an Horfe's Foot, owing to the Ditches running over into the Coach- way, occafioned by the Velocity of the Current. T h e y write from Copenhagen, that there has lately been dug up in one of the Mines in N o r w a y , a Piece of Silver O r e, which weighed 5& 0 Pounds,- being five Feet fix Inches long, aud four Feet in Circumference, which ; valued at five thoufand Crowns, and is depofited in ihe King of Denmark's Museum at Copenhagen. VVe hear from Caen in Normandy, that one Peter Le Grand dfed there, aged 115 : He worked in his Garden, for his own Amufement, ' till a W e e k before his Death. Private Letters from Leghorn advife, that Prince Heraclius of Georgia had gained a compleat Viftory over the Bafhaw of Erztrum, who had marched againft him with a Body of Fifty Thoufand Men. Saturday the Rev. Mr. Romaine went to the Marfhalfea, in the Borough, and paid the Debts for 26 poor Debtors, and rileafed them from Confinement. 1 he Royal Academy of Sciences at Stockholm have given a Premium to the Sieur de Stullenfiekf, for pointing out a Method of making Bricks without Fire.
