; v. S Adams's Weekly Courant No. 1593 i - w •-.•... -+- T,. [ XI. ] TUESDAY, May 26, 1767. [ Price Two- Pence. ] THURSDAY NlGHT's POST. From the LONDON GAZETTE, May 19. Turin, May 6. - LORD St. John died at Nice the 27th of last Month. The last Letters from thence mention, that a Fri- gate and two Chebeques had sail- ed from Toulon for the Levant, in Quest of a Tripolitan Cruizer, who had plundered a French Ship, and murdered the Master and most of the Crew. It is reported, that the Duke of Parma has lately published an Edict, which obliges all the Monks, Friars, and Convents in this State, to give an immediate Account of their Revenues, and Employment that has been, and is, made thereof, before a Delegate ap- that Purpose. Berlin, May 9. On 7th Instant, about Three o'Clock in the Morning the Princess Royal of Prussia was safely brought to Bed of a Princess at Potzdam ; and by the Accounts since received, her Royal Highness and the young Princess continue to be as well as can be expected. This happy Event was notified here the same Day, at Seven in the Morning, by the Firing of Cannon, and other Demonstrations of Joy, as usual. ( Gaz. Yesterday arrived the Mails from France and Holland. Batavia, in the East Indies, Oct. 12. The t8th of May, 1766, the Lindenhoff, a ship belonging to the Dutch East India Company, was set on fire by lightening, and entirely Consumed. The Captain and 87 others saved themselves upon pieces of the wreck; but the rest, of the crew, to the number of 40 men, perished in the flames or were drowned. She had sailed from hence the 15th of the same month, on her return to Holland. Another ship belonging to the Company was wrecked in going to Banda. This ship carried provisions for Fort Balgique, and for the inhabitants of the island, who are in great distress for want of provisions, occasioned partly by the great havock made by the Volcano Gounangapy. Stockholm, April 17. A Peasant died last Month at Bredsta, in Ostrogothia, at the Age of 112 Years; and another at Sevalla in Westmania, who wanted but a few Months of 116. Copenhagen, April 17. A poor Woman of Hioring, who was brought to bed of three Children in the Month of August 1764, was again delivered on the 27th of March last: of three more; four of which Children are now alive. A Woman died the 20th of last Month at Malda in Norway, aged 112 Years. Leghorn, April 24. The Corsicans have rein- forced their troops at Capraia with 150 men ; and the Genoese, not having, been able to give assistance to the Commander of the fortress, the Corsican Officer was offered a capitula- tion, who immediately sent an express to Ge- neral Paoli, for orders how to proceed. Paris, May 8. Letters from Rome, of the 15th past say, that an extraordinary Courier, who had been dispatched by the Nuncio at Madrid, having brought advice that the Je- suits had been proscribed the dominions of his Catholic Majesty, the news had much sur- prised the public ; that at first the Pope hesi- t.. whether it was proper to receive them into his territory, at a time when so consider- able an increase of inhabitants would occasion fresh inconveniencies, on account of the pre- sent want of provisions, but that at last, after much reflection, he had given orders to receive the banished Fathers, and lodge them where there was room. [ Other accounts say, only such of the Order as the natives of Italy are to be admitted.] IRELAND. _ Ballybane, May 9. Last Thursday six or eight acres of the great Bog above the Lough of Loughcornute in the county of Galway ( part of the estate of Mr. Nettervil) fell sud- denly into the Lough, and made so prodigi- ous a noise, that it extremely terrified the in- habitants, for many miles round. The water of the Lough has overflowed the grounds all about j the passage from the Lough thro' Mr. Nettervil's ground, is quite shut up, and the course of the water totally changed. COUNTRY NEWS. Norwich, May 16. At the sessions held for this city on Wednesday last, several persons were tried for being concerned in the late riots, when the major part of them were found guilty, but the rest acquitted. Newcastle, May 16. Last week, whilst three men were fishing in Linstock, near Carlisle. they were surprised with hearing a noise as of a number of carts rumbling at a distance, or that of cannon far off, and on looking up the river, saw the water flowing up in a sort of stream to a great height, which terrified them, especially as they found the earth tremble and shake under them at the time; several stones were also thrown up out of the bed of the ri- ver.— This phenomenon is well attested, and, by the literati, is thought to have been a wa- ter- spout, or a quantity of subterraneous va- pour which had found vent through the bottom of the river, and occasioned a slight earthquake. On Monday last was married at Stockton, Mr. John Smith, an eminent dealer at that place, and a freeman of the city of Durham, to Mrs. Jane Smith, of that place, widow. It is very remarkable, that this is her third hus- band, and that all the three had but two legs; her present husband lost one of his at the last general election for the city of Durham, in defending ( perhaps too zealously) the cause of freedom and liberty. LONDON, May 19. • We hear that a public spirited Gentleman intends to make the following proposal to those in power : " That proper persons shall be sent into all parts of England and Wales, at a reasonable time of the year, in order to transmit to the Lords of his Majesty's most Hon. Privy Council, the number of acres of land in each district that are respectively sown with grain, distinguishing what sort of grain each acre is sown with, and the state and con- dition the corn then appears to be in ; as also the number of acres set apart for pasturage, and some account of wastes, together with the state and condition of the cattle in ge- neral." We hear that some very vigorous Resolu- tions have lately passed with Respect to Ame- rica. It is said that Paschal Paoli, General of the Corsicans, has experienced Emissaries in most of the Courts of Europe, from whom he has received the most favourable Accounts, with respect to those Powers interesting themselves in the common Cause of Liberty. Confiderable Wagers are laid, that General Paoli frees the brave Corsicans from the ty- rannical Yoke of the Genoese before the Con- clusion of this Summer. They write from Leghorn, that should the Corsicans make themselves masters of the island Capraia, they would be enabled to com- pel the Republic of Genoa to acknowledge their independency on their own terms. They advise from Williamsburgh, in Vir- ginia; that a negro belonging to Col. Can- non's estate, on Appamatree river, had dis- covered an infallible cure for the bite of the horned snake, heretofore attended with almost instant death to man or beast. A linen manufactory is preparing to be established at Leeds in Yorkshire, by some of the principal Traders of that town. The price of wheat is fallen at Whitehaven three shillings per quarter ; great quantities having been lately imported from Holland and Flanders. We hear from Edinburgh, that wheaten bread is at present more plentiful in Scotland than for many years, on account of great quantities of foreign corn having been lately imported at all the principal sea- ports in that kingdom. This morning as the Workmen were dig- ging in the Road now repairing on Clerken- well Green, where formerly stood the famous Monastery of St. John of Jerusalem, they found an Earthen Pot full of ancient Coins, Silver and Copper, supposed to have lain there ever since the Reign of King John, now up- wards of 550 Years. A tradesman in the city is making a dia- mond stomacher for a lady of quality, against: his Majesty's birth- day, valued at 25,000 guineas. Extract of a Letter from Paris, May 10. " The secret Packet sent by the Count d'Aranda to the different Governors, See. in Spain, was inclosed in a Letter, directing them not to open the Packet till the Evening of the 2d, and commanding them not to take the least Notice of their having received it. They were ordered by the secret Packet, which informed them of the Fate of the Jesuits, to put his Majesty's Commands into Execution the next Morning by Break of Day, and not to suffer any Person employed therein to quit them until the Business was completed. It is no longer a Secret that the King has been in- formed by his Catholic Majesty of the Reasons for taking those Steps against the Jesuits.' The Marquis D'Ossun, our Minister at the Court of Spain, has written a Letter, which has been read before the King's Council, and con- firms the Report of his Majesty having escaped Assassination, by retiring from Madrid on Account of some Disturbances three Days be- fore this Project of the Jesuits was to have taken Place." ExtraCt of a letter from a village near Blandford, in Dorsetshire. \ " A few days since a poor woman was murdered in a wood, in a most shocking man- ner, near Winbourne, by a person supposed to be disordered in his senses, as he appeared stark naked ; after he had perpetrated the hor- rid crime he went into the house of J. Banks, Esq; ( whose servants were all in the interim, except the housekeeper, gone to view the dead body) bolted the door after him, and told he houfekeeper, that if she unbolted it, or molested him, he would certainly murder her : she then withdrew, went to her master, and acquaintcd him with it; but some of the ser- its luckily coming in, ( one of whom he immediately struck at with a hammer, which he had undoubtedly procured for some bad purpose, but providentially missed his blow) he was immediately secured and confessed the fact. The poor woman has left behind her six small children." NEWMARKET RACES. Second Spring Meeting. Monday last, a sweepstakes, 9st. 100 guin. each, B. C. was won by Mr. Shaftos's dun c.

Lord help thee, Hodge ! thou dost not seem to know What mighty Wonders our great Men can do : Old Rowland says, that Cattle are to come From France and Spain and Italy and Rome ; Such Cattle too as you and I ne'er saw at Home. K. Adzooks ! I wish that I may see the Day ! What are the Cattle call'd, did Rowland say ? W. Sagoes, I think he said, and Vermin- kellies, More than enow would come to fill our Bellies, if. Such Cattle I ne'er heard in all my Life ; I wish in one I now could stick this Knife ! But pray, dear Will, did old Rowland tell ye What Beast a Sago was, or Vermin kellie ? TV. In Troth, I did not ask him ; but suppose They Oxen are, or Hogs ; such Beasts as those. I ne'er heard better News in all my Life : Farewell ! I'll go strait Home and tell my Wife.. An EPIGRAM.

THE Chevalier de Vergennes, the fC 1H[ French Minister, had an audience V Jtl t'ie Visier the day before yester- j day, and, it is said, informed him, that the several Albanian corsairs, which were cruising off the islands in the Archipelago, had committed many piracies; that they had already seized upwards of ten French merchant ships ; that he expected that the Porte would cause them to be restored as illegally taken, since the French are not at war with her; and that the Porte would re- press these violences ; or that otherwise he would send instructions to the Commander of a French fleet in the Mediterranean to burn the piratical vessels. SCOTLAND. Aberdeen,- May 7. A Barber's boy in this place was dressing a Gentleman about eight o'clock at night, when he filled his bag with- some pounded rozin ( that one of his compa- nions had left in the shop) which he took for hair powder, and accordingly powdered the Gentleman's hair with it; after the boy had done, he took up the candle to see how he had dressed him, when unluckily some of the hairs catched fire, and set the Gentleman's head in a blaze, which put him in such a violent pas- sion, that he beat the poor boy so much, that it was necessary to carry him to the Infirmary, where he remains very ill. COUNTRY NEWS. Birmingham-, May 18. We hear that corn and flour fell confiderably last Saturday at Worcester market. . In consequence of thc large quantities of corn lately imported at Bristol, there has been a very considerable reduction in that necessary of life in all the town's up the Severn, and last Saturday se'nnight, at Bridgnorth in particu- lar, exceeding good bread corn was cried to be sold in quantity, at 5 s. per bushel. York, May 19. Last Friday as some work- men were digging a piece of garden ground on the back of the Blue Bell and Black Horse Inn, without Bootham Bar, near this city, they had scarcely dispersed the surface, when they were surprized at the appearance of a' human scull, with the bones of a skeleton; several having viewed them they , were re- committed to the earth. They must have been deposited there within these four years, as that part was then dug up, and no such thing seen. Three ships arrived last week at Hull with wheat and rye from Holland ; and last Friday )( jo lasts of fine wheat arrived at Whitby from Rotterdam, for Ruswarp mill. LONDON, May 21. Yesterday his Majesty went to the House of Peers, and gave the Royal Assent to the fol- lowing Bills, viz.

Upwards of 300 Artificers are discharged from the several Dock- Yards in this Kingdom. Our Correspondent at Yarmouth informs us, that notwithstanding several foreign Vessels have lately arrived at that Place, laden with Wheat, yet that Article continues high, ow- ing to a Number of overgrown Merchants, who have not less than 30,000 Quarters by them, and yet they are not inclined; to sell at any Price. We hear, that the first four Miles of every Road round Town are to be lighted, watched, railed, and watered; the Expence of which is to be defrayed by the Increase of Toll that will arise in Consequence of the Improve- ment. It is said that the Postage of Letters be- tween Great Britain and the Isle of Man will shortly be regulated as follows: For every sin- gle Letter Two- pence, for every double Let ter Fourpence, and for every treble letter Six- pence, ar. d for every Ounce Eight- pence; and so in Proportion for Packets of Deeds, Writs, & c.

A Suit of Cloaths, worth 1 tool, is making- by an English Taylor, for a foreign Noble- man, to appear in at Court, on his Majesty's Birth- Day. Yesterday a Man of Fortune was commit- ted to the New Gaol, southwark, charged on the Oath of a young Lad for a very detest- able Crime. The General Court of the East- India Com- pany, which met on Monday at Merchant- Taylor's- hall, did not break up till five on Tuesday morning. The papers and letters re- ceived from abroad were read, and the general state of the Company's affairs was laid before thein. After which a motion was made for offering the Government 400,000!. per annum for three years, or half their profits in trade for that time, which ever they should prefer ; which was agreed to Then a motion was made for petitioning to be heard by Council against the Bill depending for regulating the Dividends, and a great debate arose thereon ; but at length a ballot for the question was pro- posed. Fifty Gentlemen protected against that motion ; but, notwithstanding, the. bal- lot began at ten on Monday night, and was declared at four on Tuesday morning, in fa- vour of the petition. We are informed that one shilling per day will be added to thc pay of half- pay Officers of the Royal Navy, for the support of them- selves and families. Yesterday and the day before there- were great quantities of Dutch plaice at Billings- gate market, very large and fine ; which fo d after the rate of about three halfpence per pound : several of the English fishing boats now make it a custom to meet the Dutch off the Forelands, and to convey the cargoes to Billingsgate, which the Dutch themselves by law cannot do.

Letter to the Dean, when in England, in 1726. YOU will excuse me, I suppose, For sending rhyme instead of prose, Because hot weather makes me lazy ; To write in metre is more easy, While you are trudging to the town, I'm strolling Dublin up and down ; While you converse with Lords and Dukes, I have their betters here, my books'; FIX'd in an elbow chair, at ease, I chuse companions as I please. I d rather have one single shelf, Than all my friends, except yourself; For, after all that can be said, Our best acquaintance are the dead. While you're in raptures with Faustina, I'm charm'd at home with our Sheelina. While you are starving there in state, I'm cramming here with butcher's meat. You say, when with those Lords you dine, They treat you with the best of wine, Burgundy, Cyprus, and Tokay Why so can we, as well as they. No reason then, my dear good Dean, But you should travel home again. What though you mayn't in Ireland hope To find such folk as GAY and POPE; If you with rhymers here would share But half the wit that you can spare, I'd lay twelve eggs, that in twelve days, You'd make a doz'n of POPES and GAYS. Our weather's good, our sky is clear, We've ev'ry joy, if you were here; So lofty, and so bright a sky, .. Was never seen by Ireland's eye; I think it fit to let you know, This week I shall to Quilca go ; To see Mc Fayden's horny- brothers, , First fuck, and after, bull their mothers.. To see, alas ! my wither'd trees ! To see ' what all the country sees! My stunted quicks, my famish'd beeves, My servants such a pack of thieves .; My shatter'd firs, my blasted oaks, My house in common to all folks : No cabbage for a single snail, My turnips, carrots, parsnips fail; My no green pease, my few green sprouts, My mother always in the pouts: My horses rid, or gone astray,- My fish all stol'n, or run away ; My mutton lean, and pullets old, . My poultry starv'd, the corn all sold. A man, come NOW from- Quilca, says, They've stol'n the locks from all your keys, But, what must fret and vex me more, He says, they stole the keys before. They've stol'n the knives from all thc forks, And half the cows from half the sturks; Nay more, the fellow swears and vows, They've stol'n the sturks from half the cows. With many more accounts of woe, Yet, . though the Devil be there, I'll go : ' Twixt you and me, the reason's clear, Because I've more vexation here. MONDAY NIGHT's POST. Copenhagen, May yt." HER Royal Highness is some Months ad- vanced in her Pregnancy. [ Gaz. Yesterday arrived a Mail from Holland. Warsaw, April 25. It is reckoned tHat there are at present 30,000 Russians in Poland; to wit, ; or 6000 at Wilna in Lithuania, under the command of Gen. Numers, and as many under Generals Dunthen and Apraxin ; 5000 headed by General Soltikoff and seven regi- ments. of 2000 men each, under M. Kret- zelnikoff. These troops invest Poland, reach- ing from Wilna, by Podlachia, Mazovia, Po- lish Prussia, and Great Poland, to Cracow'; and from the Palatinate of Kiovia, by Vol- hinia, the Palatinate of Russia, the territory of Przemist,. to the environs of Sendomir, which border on the Palatinate of Cracow. Genoa, May 2. We are informed that the contrary winds have not permitted the Sena- tor Pinelli to effect a landing at Capraia, or to throw assistance into the fortress, vessel, which arrived here yesterday frOm Bastia, re- ports, that on the lit instant, being off that island, she heard a firing of cannon. It is therefore conjectured, that we shall soon re • ceive advice Of an action between the Genoese troops and the Corsicans employed in the siege of the fortress." Paris, May i3. On thc 21ft and 22d of last month their appeared in the road near Rochelle a wolf, who devoured and killed several people, and wounded above sixty. A wolf has since been destroyed, Which is thought to be the same ; several wolves have since been seen, which have done no hurt. Turin, Mayr 6.

PLANTATION NEWS Boston in New England. March 26. We hear that , Mr. William Frobisher. of this town, Soapboiler, has made a process with pot ash, in making the best of hard soap, which has not hitherto been practised in England. Sam ples of which he purposes to sand home, and, if approved of, as is highly probable, will prevent the importation of Barilla ash from Spain, which they before made use of. and will take off from the colonies near 20 tons, of pot ash to one that thic Soft soap Makers use.

' ' The three Soldiers under Sentence of Death in our City Gaol, are respited until further Orders'.' ' ' - Galway, May 14. We hear from Cunemara, that one James Moran, an old experienced Fisherman, who was at the taking of a Sun- fish on that Coast about ten Days since, had received so violent a Stroke on the Small of his Back from the Tail of the Fish, as totally to sever his Backbone, and killed him on the SpOt. Dublin, May 19. On the 5th inst. a poor' Woman was barbarously murdered near Cahir in the County of Limerick, by John Leo, otherwise Lee ; whose Brother Thomas Leo, otherwise Lee, is now in Confinement in Li- merick,' on an Indictment for thc Murder of his Father- in- Law. LONDON, May 23. A plan has been laid - before the Lords of Trade, and his said, is noW under considera- tion, for allowing the importation of low priced teas from the islands of Guernsey and Jersey, on paying a small duty, which it is thought, will be a means of preventing the large quantities of teas that are annually smug- gled from those places, • •• We are credibly informed, that leave will be given to export annually, thirty tons of Gum Seneca and Gum Arabick, from Eng- land to Ireland, duty free ; for the better an- couragement of the trade of that kingdom. Mr. Mello, the Portugueze Minister here, has received . a circumstantial account of the plot laid by the Jesuits to assassinate his Most Catholic Majesty ; which horrid proceeding, joined with their other bad behaviour of forging bulls, & c. was, beyond all doubt, the certain cause of the late total and eternal eX- pulsion of those Fathers from Spain. We hear from very good hands, that his Most Christian Majesty has, by his Ambassador at Rome, demanded of his Holiness to issue a bull, or ordonance, abolishing for ever the Society of Jesus, and even the very name . of Jesuits. We hear a great man has lately declared, the Government could not take a wiser mea- sure than to tolerate the Jesuits in this king- dom; their property ( said his lordship) is immense, and if kept under strict regulations, they would prove a very important encrease to the Community." According to letters from Leghorn, advice had just been received that the whole island of Caprea had surrendered to the Corsicans, and the Genoese garrison were allowed to march out with all military honours, and be embark- ed for the Continent. Tis said, that persons will be appointed by Parliament, to see that all musquets, & c. are proof before they are sold, as the frauds car- ried on in the manufacture of guns are every day productive of the most terrible accidents; especially among the Savages of America, where a gun frequently bursts at the very first explosion, and shatters the miserable possessor in a manner that is highly shocking to humanity. . We hear the celebrated John James Rous- seau set out, in a private manner, early yes- terday morning for France. Letters from Boston, New England, advise; that on the 3d Of Feb. at night, a fire broke out in the bake- house of Mr. Bray, near Mill- Bridge, when the wind being very high and variable, it Scattered the flakes every way. Above twenty houses were entirely destroyed. besides several others greatly damaged, which were set on fire at different distances, by th6 flakes being carried by the wind. It was a most severe frosty night, and the streets were covered with ice, the water freezing as it ran from the houses on which the engines played and the fire was not got under till three in tho" morning.—. The loss is very considerable. We hear a French Lady Is practising every morning, from five o'clock to seven, at the Tennis- court in James's- street, near the Hay- market ; and it is said she is to play at the game of tennis with the best player in Eng- land, for a considerable sum of money. Monday died at Pilrig, in Scotland, Lady Elphingston, widow of the deceased Sir John Elphingston, of Logie, Bart. CHESTER, May 26. : On Thursday last, that extraordinary Ge- nius, the famous Mr. Charles Pleasants, was safely brought up to London, and, the same evening was lodged in his late apartment within Newgate, being charged with forging and publishing two certain bills of exchange in Middlesex, with intent to defraud Mr. Ba- goshaw, Hosier, and Mr. Cook, Linen- draper, and also a promissary note, with' intent to de- fraud Mr. Trott, Innkeeper, of Buxton, in Derbyshire; from all of whom he obtained considerable sums. Yesterday the Royal Cheshire Battalion was embodied here, in order to exercise for twenty eight days. Last Tuesday was run on Kersal Moor, near Manchester, a match, between the horses of Capt. Percival and Cornet Douglas, of Gen. Mostyn's id troop of Dragoon Guards, now quartered at Manchester, one two- mile heat for col. which was won by the latter. On Sunday Mr. Thomas Parry of this city one of the Officers in his Majesty's Custom- house here, was married at St. Peter's Church, to Miss Betty Sephton, youngest daughter to Captain Sephton, Merchant, in Chester: The new married couple immediately set out to keep their wedding at her sister's house in Li- verpool A fee days ago died, at his house in Fore- gate- street, Mr. Daniel Porter, for almost years a Sollicitor, and Law- Practioner in this city. We are informed of a certainty, that the Lord Bishop of Chester will hold an Ordina- tion at Stanhope, in the county of Durham, on the second Sunday in July next. We hear from Mold in Flintshire that there is a very genteel Dancing Assembly set up there, in order to preserve harmony and : good neighbourhood, where all Gentlemen and Ladies of fashion are desired to favour them with their Company. No Tradesmen Miners, & c. or their wives or daughters, but only persons of family and genteel education, will be admitted, or introduced.— A laudable example, and worthy the imitation '- of a genteel Assemblies in other places. An EPIGRAM.| wHiLE some Folks to beggar the Nation we striving. villians in CoacHes and Chariots are driving While such Things continue, inform me my Friend, Do you think that the TimeS so complain'd of will mend > J. o. To all those who complain of the Defects of SIGHT, just now is arrived from Manchester, who is now performing his Operations on the Eye with as great Success as at that Place MR. MILLER, a regular- bred Occulist, whole peculiar Method and Dexterity have met with the particular Approbation of different Academies Abroad, ( as is evident by indisputable Attes- tations from those Societies) offers his Assistance to all those who are any Ways afflicted in the Eyes, tho' the Disorder be of 20 Years standing, and the Cure being at- tempted and missed by former unskilful Operators, all which may be evidenced by 126 Patients, who have been perfectly restored to . Sight, when labouring under divers Complain s in the eyes, during his Residence in Bristol, Birmingham, Leicester, Derby, and lastly in Manchester, where 5 j Patients have been restored by him, at which place the Doubtful may be satisfied of the Truth 0f this AssertiOn. Mr. MILLER's daily Practice convinces him of the Mal Treatment many of the Afflicted have suffered, by some Pretenders to this Art, who not staying a sufficient Time in the same Place to perfect their Undertakings, have ignorantly and improperly Couched, and applied other violent Remedies, in order to effect a sham Cure, but the Afflicted may be assured that his method his contrary to theirs, his being perform'd by an easy and safe Method of extracting the cause of the Complaint, and he wi: l be ready at any Time, when desired by a Patient, to do the operation under the Inspection of any unprejudic'd jud- ges of the Faculty, and makes no Doubt of having the Honour of their Approbation, as he depends upon the effects of his Performance to speak his Praise, better -: i. 1 a Multiplicity of Bombalt and Pompous Words without re Meaning, such as Pontifical, imperial, Royal Opthalmiator. & c. expressions which tend rather " to amuse and deceive the ignorant, than to convince the Sensible of any particular Skill in the professor. Mr. MILLER expects no Fee nor Reward till the Cure is perfected, the Money being deposited in some safe per- son's Hand which he approves of, for his Security on the Performane of what is proposed, which Declaration he hopes will demonstrate to every one, that he has no Scheme to deceives the Blind, or rob the public, nor will he attempt or meddle with any Distemperor Ailing of the Eye, without being first fully persuaded of the Possibility of a Cure. By acting contrary to this Method, many travelling Professors have dOne injury to their patients, by unde- servedly taking their Money, and rais'd a deserved Odium against themselves, and an inveterate Prejudice in the public against their Successors in the same Art. those who are not inclin'd to undergo Operations, and whose Indispositions proceed from Inflammation, Weak- ness, Diminution, Scar, Pearl, or Webb, by which the sight is restored, or any ether Defeat of the Eye lids-; he offers the Assistance of divers outward medicines to re- establish that Organ to its former beauty and Perfec- tion, and in particular, a Spirit of surprising Quality for the Cure of a beginning Gutta Serena, provided the Optic be not entirely obstructed. His Advice may be had every Morning, without fee, by any Persons, whether their Case is curable by him or not, and will assist the Poor gratis, with, the same Cure and Tenderness, as those in a more exalted Station, at his Apartments at the Yacht in this City, which are in that Part of the House next Common- Hall- Lane, therefore all persons may come that chuse it. ROWLEY's BRITISH HERB SNUFF and TOBACCO, from St. PAUL's COFFEE- HOUSE, LONDON, are still sold by Mrs. ADAMS, Printer, in Chester.

The Case of a Clergyman's Daughter cured. by MAREDANT's DROPs. To Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, in Golden- Square, London. SIR, I Return you my most sincere Thanks for the extraor- dinary Cure my. Daughter has received by your Ma-, redant's Drops, She was afflicted with a most inveterate Leprosy, which rendered her a most shocking Spectacle to all who beheld her. The Winter before it broke out,, she was troubled with a Sickness and a violent Spitting; in the Beginning of March the Disorder appeared . ih- Blotches and Scurf about her Neck, attended with exces- sive Itching her Body, was also swelled all over ; the loose dry Scurf continued to spread all over her Body, followed by a. violent, sharp Humour, which took away the Skin from every Part, the Inflammation was so great as to be sensibly felt by the Hand some Distance from her, which- remained 24 Hours then the Humour dried up and was followed with great loose Scales which fell off by Handfuls in a most surprising Manner for the Space of a Week, which at last increased till they be- came as hard as tire Bark of a Tree ; all this was fol- lowed with such a Smell,, that few could bear the Room where she was : In short; the Fever and Loss of Appe- tite brought her so low, that no one expected her Life. In taking yOur Medicine the Humour gradually ceased, after that the Scales became thinner and thinner, till the natural Skin appeared, and now' she has not the least Blemish on any Part of her Body. — You have my Leave to this most extraordinary Cure for the Be- nefit of Mankind, 1 am your humble Servant; . ) CORIOLANUS COPPLESTONE, At Cobham, in Surry.

Any Perso still doubtful of the efficacy of this Me- dicine, may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON, Surgeon; the West Side of Golden Square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor,' where these Drops are sold in Bottles of 6 s. each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, by being referred to many people of credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long- contimfed Inflammations of the Eyes, and every ether Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least inconvenience or hindrance of. business.
