Adams's Weekly Courant, No. 1596. PRINTER, & c. ELOQUENCE, properly de- fined, is the art of speaking well, and requires not only great mental endowment to- wards obtaining any degree of perfection, but must be assisted likewise with a suit- able deportment of the body. Elocution is not to be acquired by every person, be his ap- plication ever so great, and his mental facul- ties sufficientiy adequate to make the finished scholar ; for to compleat the orator, there must be a due combination of organised parts, acting so conjointly, as to produce volubility of speech, sympathetic aspect, distinct articu- lation, and a musical cadence of the voice. Thus we see it is not enough to be merely the man of learning, and able to deliver a sentence according to the strict rules of gram- mar; but he must also possess the superior powers of oratory, without which talent he never will speak gracefully, emphatically, and with persuasiveness. Therefore to obtain the gift of speaking well, as I have already ob- serv'd, requires oftentimes our utmost efforts; yet sorry I am to remark, that it seems the least to be studied by our young clergy : hence, from wanting so necessary an accomplishment, we so frequently hear many excellent subjects grievously maimed, or delivered from the pul- pit in a dull, languid, and unfeeling manner. Is it not very surprizing from the numerous examples to be met with among the ancients, that they are not more imitated by the mo- derns ; the youth of the former were always instructed to declaim in public ; a qualification which was by them thought very essential to compleat their education : By studying oratory they were fitted either for civil or military employments. Surely then, such as are with us intended for ecclesiastical duties, claim at least our equal attention and regard. The great inattention no generally observ- able amongst the preachers of God's holy word, calls loudly for a speedy amendment; and unless the Ministers of the Gospel will exert themselves properly, we cannot wonder at the degeneracy of morals in their hearers. It must be indeed acknowledged, there are some exceptions, but those so thinly scattered, that it is amazing the number is so small; more especially when we consider, that no part of the habitable globe can vie with us in the production of more learned, exemplary, and pious Divines. To what cause then shall we ascribe so great a solecism in literature; it must not be imputed to any defect of parts, or genius; but may we not with more propriety lay the just blame on the Universities, and our great public schools ? I am not infensible, there are many compelled as it were against nature to exercise the function of clergymen, who are by no means qualified for so important a trust; and yet with the help of Greek and Latin, and a thorough knowledge of their native language, are found capable of writing most excellent discourses. This is indisputably a very useful acquisition, but is not something more neces- sary to form the orator ? A good author, and an able speaker, are but seldom united; the one fabricates in private, but the other exhi- bits in public; the former invents fine thoughts, the latter delivers them with elegance, energy, and ease. If we take a survey of the numbers who compose the clergy, the senate, and the bar, impartiality obliges us to acknowledge, there are indeed some, who bear a distinguish- ing rank in each class; but, alas! how few of that mighty aggregate, merit such an epithet! Oratory is a sciencc, but little studied; in reading divine service, points and periods are seldom noticed ; 1 had almost said become un- fashionable. The youth intended for the gown, seem now- a- days too much puffed up with self importance, if they can barely re- peat some few quotations from any author in a dead language not considering the great utility they would derive to themselves and others, by studiously endeavouring to be pro- ficients in their own ; so infatuated are they in the wiles of pedantry, and to be thought excellent scholars. But surely all such must be totally insensible to the charms of elo- quence, which in the possessor seldom fails to animate his auditors with religious zeal, ve- neration, and delight; insomuch that, we are almost ready to believe him, endued with in- spiration. Having said thus much, I shall now hasten to conclude, with giving one rare example, where I was both an eye, and ear witness. In a certain parish church, westward of London, upwards of seventy miles, a comely young person officiated, whose singular behaviour, and graceful demeanor, attracted the notice of the whole congregation ; his eloquent manner of delivery, both in praying and preaching, was so engaging, harmonious, and pathetic, that every hearer was charmed, and their hearts filled with veneration, transport, and delight. It were to be wished, that instances of this sort were more frequent among the clergy in general; but the young, in particular, so as to render them in future more useful in their functions; then might we hope, as they im prove in delivering God's holy word, their hearers would amend their lives, their morals, and their conversation. MIRATOR. OF all the Virtues that are the Honour and Support of a Government, and that se- cure the Peace and Quiet, the Lives and Pro- perties of its Subjects, Justice may truly stand foremost ; for without an equal and impartial distribution of Justice, no Government can deserve honour, nor stand upon a firm basis ; nor can the Lives and Properties of any Peo- ple be tolerably safe and secure without such distribution. To the particular Honour of our Courts of Westminster Hall, it may be truly said, that Justice is there equally and impar- tially distributed according to the utmost strength of human Reason ; and it is greatly to be wished, that their example was followed by those who are appointed in a lower sphere to distribute Justice in general throughout the Kingdom. The office of a Justice of Peace is very honourable and of great service to the People, if filled with Men of Honour, who make a distinction in the execution of it be- tween the Rich and the Poor, but equally and impartially distribute Justice ; but, Sir, I am sorry to say it, this is not always the case : for though there are many Gentlemen in the Commission who act with the utmost justice and impartiality, and do honour to the office, yet, there are others who are a disgrace to it, who deny Justice to the Poor, and suffer the Rich to trample upon them with impunity > s I have laid such a heavy change it will be expected I should bring some proof in support of it; and I will do it. In the Southern bor- ders of this Kingdom there is a Corporation where a poor woman hath, for fome years past, charged a certain rich man with the Murder of a Child She had by him, and hath often offer- ed to take her Oath thereof, but can get no Jus tice of Peace, in or near the Place, to take her Oath-, nay, indeed, she did even charge him ' with the Murder of her Child before the whole Bench of Justices there, but could not prevail upon them, or any one of them, to take her Oath ; for it seems, the Person the accused of the Murder ' was one of the Quoram. I am, Sir, your's, & c. JUSTITIA. IGuernsey, May 25. Was much pleased with a Query, in a letter, in one of your Papers lately, " Whether people of fashion thought the fourth Com- mandment came from the same hand as the nine others ?" One would think, indeed, they did not ; as they generally chuse Sunday for travelling; because only stage coaches and waggons observe that day religiously ; and so people of fashion are sure of not meeting with any such obslacles, or impediments, on the road that day._ I declare myself to be no Presbyterian, nor enemy to Dignities, but a true orthodox Churchman; and yet I declare, that I was puzzled to answer a country fellow once, in Berkshire ; who said, " He wonder- ed he might not be allowed to use his cart on a Sunday when, he said, he saw once in London; a Sunday, Clergymen lolling " in their coaches, only to go the length of two or three streets, to church, and that some of them looked as able to walk as he, and this in fine weather too, added Colin. Sure, says he, it is not allowed for fine folks to break the Com mandment, to go to say their prayers; sure what is sin in us is sin in them." But Hob puzzled me most with his " point of divinity, " about folks cracking a Command, to go to church ; and that the sin must sure spoil all the good their prayers could do them ; when walk- ing, ( for some people that looked strong and stout enough to carry a chair, instead of being carried in a coach,) would have been better for their bodies, and their souls too, said Colin, than making their cattle do work, and such idle needless work too, on a Sunday." All I could answer was, " Ah, Colin, Colin, our betters can explain, and expound and distill, better than you and I, laws into their spritual meaning, for use; but you and I must WALK by the LETTER. Yours, D. A REBUS. ONE third of a Crown that is coined in France, By changing a Letter, else ' twould be romance ; And something in which fish delight for to sport, Will shew you the Name of a flourishing Port *, * Sea Port, THURSDAY NIGHT's POST, from the LONDON GAZETTE, June 9. Berlin, May 30. N the 27th instant, in the morn- ing, an express arrived here fron » Protzen ( a country- seat belong- ing t0 Madame de Kleist) where young Prince Henry lay ill of the Small pox, with the melancholy news, that that Prince died on the 26th, at eight at night; some dangerous symptoms having ap- peared the day before. As his Royal High- ness was imagined to be out of all danger, this accident, being unexpected, was the more severe ; nor is it possible to describe the affliction of the whole family, or the general consternation it occasions here, as that Prince was extremely beloved. Hague, June 5. M. de Larrey, Privy Coun- sellor and Secretary to the Prince of Orange, sets out for Berlin to- morrow, in order to set- tle every thing relative to the marriage of his Serene Highness with the Princess Wilhelmina, Sister to the Prince Royal of Prussia. Yesterday arrived the Mails from France and Holland. Leghorn, May 16. They write from Roglia- no, in the island of Corsica, that 91 of the prisoners that were taken in the island of Ca- praia, are arrived there. Those among them who are Genoese, or of other nations, are treated according to the Rules of War in all civilized countries; but those who prove to be Corsicans, are sent to prifon, and treated as rebels and traitors to their country. Vienna, May 20. The Dutchess of Saxe- Meschen was brought to bed the 16th instant of a daughter, who, on account of her weak state was immediately baptised, but she died the next morning, and on the 18th was buri- ed in the Tomb belonging to the august House of Austria, in the church of the Capuchins. , Vienna, May 23. The Empress Josephina hath been indisposed for some days with a violent fever, and the small- pox appeared ye- sterday. Her Majesty slept but indifferently last night, but the fever is considerably abated, the pock is very small, but very thick. This accident hath hastened the departure of the Court for Schonbrun ; for which place all the Imperial Family set out last night, except her Royal Highness the Dutchess of Saxe- Teschen, who remains in this capital being very near her time. Leghorn, May 14. The Corsicans have pub- lished the following relation of the action in the Island of Capraia : The 2d of this month a little before day- break, about 150 Genoese, guided by one of the inhabitants of Capraia, landed in the Island : they advanced about two miles and surprized three posts from our people, who were asleep 30 of whom were massacred : the Genoese cried out Victory, and Paggiola, their Commander, led them to- wards the Fortress, but our people ran direct- ly to arms, surrOunded the Genoese and killed a great number: there were but 11 that got on board, the others were made prisoners ; among which are six Captains and other Of- ficers ; the Guide was condemned and exe- cuted. A French Colonel in the service of the Re- public, was to have landed 1000 men during the action, which lasted three hours, but con- trary winds hindered him from executing his design. General Mattra had two balls shot through his cloaths, and is now at genoa to solicit a reinforcement. Florence, May 11. There reign here a great many maladies, which carry off abundance of people, insomuch that the number of our hospitals is increased, in order to enable us to take care of the sick. * COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, June 8. We hear from Wigton that an ewe belonging to Mr. Sanderson, at Catlings, in Bolton, near that place, has had four lambs, which are all living. Gloucester, June 8. We are well assured that the Association of Farmers, & c. in this Coun- ty, for prosecuting Forestallers, Ingrossers, & c. will produce very good effects, as several in- formations have been made against Offenders, who have been since apprehended, and bound over to the next Quarter Sessions to answer for these offences. Bristol, June 6. Last Monday afternoon, as the Constables of Castle Precincts were in search of some stockings that were stolen a few nights before in Merchant- street, their suspicion led them to the house of John Lang- ford, Night Watchman,- in the Quakers Fri- ars, where they discovered concealed in a box, one Jane Bryan, a girl about 18 years of age, a spectacle indeed! being almost starved, and quite naked. It appeared, that she had been a lodger in the house near 20 months, but had not been confined to the narrow limits of this box ( which is about 30 inches long and 18 broad) more than eight months, during which time she has been often without sustenance for three days together. The position she was obliged to lie in, ( for she is tall,) has so con- tracted her limbs, that they are at present quite useless, and perhaps ever will be so. They also found in the fame house, one Han- nah Rogers, quite naked, and with only shavings to lie on. She lived at service in this city, which she left on being with child, and fled to this place for shelter ; she declares that she lodged thirty nights in the same room where the girl was confined in the box before she knew it. Both these deplorable creatures were immediately carried to St. Peter's Hos- pital; Langford and his wife were forthwith secured, the daughter has been since taken up, but the man pleading ignorance of the whole matter, and the girl confirming it, he was released. The wife and daughter are separately confined in Bridewell, till their un- natural and cruel treatment can be further enquired into. Norwich, June 6. On Sunday last a great storm of hail and rain fell in this city and neighbourhood, attended with thunder and lightning ; during the storm a horse was struck dead by the lightening on Saddleton's Mea- dow in Thorpe: And we hear from Salthouse in Norfolk, that a poor woman and a child, were so terribly scorched by a ball of fire, that their lives are despaired of; a heavy rain continued till Wednesday night with very lit- tle intermission. The low grounds and mar- shes between this city and Yarmouth are un- der water. On Wednesday night the tempo- rary bridge lately erected at Harford, within two miles of this city, was carried away by the rapidity of the flood. LONDON, June 9. Sunday the son of his Serene Highness the Prince of Brunswick who has been under preparation, was inoculated for the small- pox, at their apartments in st James's Palace. It is now said that his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland will not set out for that Kingdom before the usual time. There is a change in the M v now talked of in favour of a Noble M and his friends; and it is said that, a noble Duke has given over all thoughts of interesting himself in public affairs on account of the death of his son. It is said that fome important changes will speedily take place in the Department of the Law. We are assured, by a Gentleman of vera- city, who arrived in town last week, from Belleisle, that the French have already fitted out there, and in the River Vilaine upwards of zoo vessels, to be employed this year, in the Newfoundland Cod Fishery. Several vessels have arrived, within these few days, laden with 8357 quarters of wheat. A bill against usury, it is said, will be pas- sed into a law, before the dissolution of the present Parliament. Yesterday se'nnight the Hon. and Rev. Dr. Hervey, brother to his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, was consecrated Lord Bishop of Cloyne, in Christ Church, Dublin, by his Grace the Lord Primate, assisted by his Grace the Archbishop of Dublin, and the Lords Bishops of Meath and Ferns. We hear from Edinburgh, that the prices of all kinds of provisions have lately fallen in the markets of that city twenty per cent. Thursday a Fruiterer at the west end of the town gave 30 guineas for ten pounds weight of cherries, at Covent- Garden marked Last week, at a christening at Widaker, near Whitehaven, of the 21st Child of Mr. Wright, by the same woman, the company came from 21 parishes, and the entertain- ment consisted of 21 pieces of beef, 21 legs of mutton and lamb, 21 gallons of brandy, three times 21 gallons of strong ale, three times 21 fowls roasted and boiled, 21 pies, besides several hams, a great number o. f pud- dings, & C. & c It is generally thought, that on the arrival of Mr. Lyttleton at Lisbon, ( who, it is said will set out this week,) the commercial differences so long subsisting between England and Portugal, will be finally compromised to the satisfaction of both Crowns. A few days since died in the Fleet, Capt. Dennet, of his Majesty's Navy he made the following uncommon resolution, not to cut the nails of either fingers or toes, by which means at his death, he resembled Nebuchad- nezzar, his nails being hooked like Eagles claws. i [ II _ TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 1767. [ Price Two- Pence. ] j By letters from Hamburgh we have advice, that two thousand tons of naval stores are now buying up there for the use of the French marine. On the 6th inst. died at Portsmouth, after a tedious, illness-. the- Right Hon. Lord Hope, aged 27, eldest son to the Earl of Hopetown, a few days after his return from America. Tuesday afternoon, as a child, about four years, son of a person who keeps a pork shop in Clare- market, was playing in his father's shop, he hastily gave a shriek, dropped down, and expired instantly. This is said to be their third child that has died suddenly. Yesterday John Wilson, a boy of eight years old, was brought before Alderman Plumb at Guildhall; he was taken up as a vagrant in Golden- lane, on Sunday morning, about two o'clock : He confessed he belonged to a gang of six men and boys, who put him into houses in the evening to let them in to rob ; they had robbed houses in Angel alley, Moorfields, St. James's Market, Fleet Market, and several other places; but the facts being mostly done in Middlesex, and the gang living near Bed- fordbury, he was sent to Sir John Fielding's to be dealt with according to law. Last week a Milkman, who lives near Greenwich, was summoned before the Court of Requests for not paying his servant her wages. The Gentlemen, who sat in the Court, asked him the reason why he would not pay the wages due to her ? to which he made an- swer, she would not get up in the morning. The girl then asked the Court, if she might be heard in her defence ? which being grant- ed, said she did not know what time her master would have her get up in the morning, as she was always up time enough to heat thirty- six quarts of water against her master brought home thirty quarts of milk to mix with it, and rub the sides of the pails with snails to make the milk froth, as if just come from the cow; upon which the Court ordered Mr. Nick and Froth to pay the girl her wages, and dismissed the cause to the satisfaction of all present. Thursday se'nnight as Mrs. Mush, of Mid- dleham, in Yorkshire, was riding to Askrig Fair, her horse taking the reist in a narrow part of a lane, where a cart was passing along, run backwards between the cart horses, when she leapt off, but unluckily falling upon her head, the cart- wheels run over her body, and killed her on the spot. Sixteen Bakers were convicted last week, by Major John Spinnage, of , Argyle build- ings, for selling great quantities of two penny loaves, found to be deficient in their weight from two to four ounces each. On Saturday the Sessions ended at the Old- Bailey when five prisoners were tried, one of whom was capitally convicted, for a burglary; viz. Edward Williams, who was capitally convicted for another burglary on Friday Night; one was cast for transportation, and three acquitted. At this Sessions three received sentence of death; nine to be transported for fourteen years ; 36 for seven years ; and three to be whipt. We are assured, that a petition was deliver- ed to his Majesty on Friday last from the fol lowing convicts, viz. Lawrence Sweetman, William Elliot, Jacob Wood, and John Ben- tham, now under fentence of death in his Majesty's Gaol of Newgate, humbly praying, that his Majesty would be graciously pleased to order any one or all of them, for ampu- tation of a limb, or any other experiment that shall be thought proper to be made on them, to try the efficacy of Mr. Pierce's Styp- tic Medicines, all chearfully submitting to risk the life already forfeited to justice. The King has been pleased to extend his Royal Clemency to John Bentham, one of the unhappy convicts under sentence of death in Newgate, and who has a wife and three chil- dren, in consideration of his undergoing, pur- suant to his own petition; an amputation of one of his limbs, for trying the efficacy of Mr. Pierce's styptiC medicines. He is a young man of 25 years of age, by trade a White- smith ; and if the operation succeeds, will be he easter able to earn his livelihood by honest industry. SATURDAY NiGHT's POST. Yesterday arrived a mail from France. Constantinople, May 2. HEY write from Cairo, that the 3d of March last, being the se- cond feast of the Bayram, the day on which all the Beys, and other great Officers of the city, go to Castle to salute Hamsey Pacha, Governor of Egypt, and to pay their compliments to him, according to the custom of the festival, about sixty persons, the greater part of whom belonged to the Grandees, who were exiled some time since, having formed a plot to get rid of several Beys, at that time in office, in- reduced themselves, disguised and armed, into the Bashaw's hall ' of audience ; but al- t;, vy\ the secret of their conspiraCy had not transpired," they had concerted matters so ill t- u : '- xecufcop., thw!. M, ' foreonl! . titdV The Emir tae Mecca Caravan, among the Bashaw's people, he made a signal to the Bey ; the latter getting up immediately to take leave of the Bashaw, he received a pistol- shot, which carried off part of his jaw. This wound, though considerable, difcouraged him not. He took sword in hand, and sup- ported by the other Beys, who did the same, made way through, the conspirators. One Bey only remained dead on the spot. The Emir Hatch had his Tchaouch killed, the Tchaouch Kiayassi was dangerously wounded, as well as several other principal Officers. After this bloody scene, which cost the lives of- a great number of persons, the Govern- ment determined to depose the Bashaw, which was done the same day, and those among his Officers, who were suspected of having fa- voured this plot, were exiled. The Aga of the Janissaries is making vigorous researches after all who may have been seduced into this conspiracyv and has already ordered several great men of Cairo to be punished, who have been found to be of the number of conspi- rators. The Grand Seignor being informed, that the Government had deposed Hamsey Pacha, he has conferred on him the Government of Aleppo, and nominated to replace him at Cairo, Rakin. Effendi, formerly Tefterdar, whom his Highness has honoured with the title of Bashaw of Three Tails. It is believ- ed that the Bashaw, who was at Aleppo, will be invested with the Government of Kars, vacant by the death of Akikalla Mehemet Pacha. COUNTRY NEWS. Bristol, June 6. Last Tuesday a Farmer at Chew, in Somersetshire, began shearing his sheep, and the next morning twenty- five of them were found dead in the field, and several expiring, owing ( it is imagined) to the cold- ness of the weather. About three weeks ago died William New- ell, one of the Pumpers at the Hot- Wells, and last week an account came of an uncle cf his dying and leaving him 25001. per annum, besides a large sum in ready cash, which de- volves to his brother in Ireland. Sherborne, June 8. The principal Farmers in Gloucestershire have gained themselves ge- neral approbation, for coming to a resolution, which they have subscribed to, of selling their grain by the Winchester measure, and no other. And they have, by a public advertise- ment, desired the Magistrates of every market town in the county to provide standard bushels for the use of the markets. The Farmer of Wiltshire have followed their example. Leeds, June 9. In the night of the 7.7th ult. the family of Mr. James Turner, of Al- herton cum Wilsden, near Bradford, were disturbed by a noise in the house; the master got out of bed, and went into his shop, which he found broke open by a man, who imme- diately- made his escape ; however, notwith- standing the villain had disguised himself, by blacking his face, Mr. Turner suspecting him to be one of his neighbours, had him appre- hended last- week, and examined before Sa- muel Lister, Esq; of Horton, who committed him to York Castle. LONDON, June 11. The case of numbers of his Majesty's brave Officers both of the Army and Navy, who in the last and former wars exposed their lives for the honour and support ofthese kingdoms, and are now perishing in different prisons in this kingdom, surely claim the aid and com- miseration of those in power; for after being reduced and on Half- pay, they- could not, nor perhaps is it possible for them, to live on 30 or 40I. a year, and that very badly paid them ; and fine; the last peace great numbers of them continuing in London, hoping for some Preferment or Promotion, as a just reward of their past services, were obliged to con- tract debts for their necessary support, and appearance, to attend on those who had pro- mised them Promotion and assistance. Not less than four or five hundred of these unfor- tunate Gentlemen are now in our different prisons, and that for small sums ; so that from the general and almost universal distress of this kingdom, at this juncture, the prisons ( particulariy those in and about London) are so filled that the wretched inhabitants a e obliged to lie or live two, three, or more in a room ; and you may depend on it as a fact, that numbers have lately died both in the Fleet, King's Bench, and Marshalsea Prisons, by long confinement, want of air and other disorders : And from the great increase of those miserable persons at this very warm season of the year, some very dreadful distemper must be the consequence of immuring such num- bers, and many of them lose their lives one Land and one Sea Officer, both of great cha- racter, haying very lately died in the Fleet, together with many others. By the fundamental laws of this kingdom, no man can be imprisoned for life, let his crime be what it will. But what signifies this noble institution and standard of British li- berty, when we see it every day inverted and defeated, by fines imposed on miserable wret- ches, who have hardly cloathing to cover their nakedness, to the amount of many hun- dred, nay thousand pounds, who have not the least prospect of ever being able to pay a ? What numbers of such ua- happy beings are there now in our several gaols; and have been for ten, and some for twenty years past, excluded the benefit of any Act of Insolvency, and must, as the law now stands, in course languish out the remainder of their lives in the greatest poverty, and be a burthen to themselves and the community. Is it not therefore imprisonment for life to im- pose such fines without a period to their con- finement ? And would it not be more chari- table, as well as political, to transport them, or sell them as slaves to some of our planta- tions ? A report now prevails, that his Grace the Duke cf Bedford is to be appointed Lord Privy Seal ; the Marquis of Rockingham First Lord of the Treasury, and the Earls of Egmont and Halifax Secretaries of State. We hear from Lisbon, that Mr. Hay, Bri- tish Envoy, had presented a memorial to the King against the inconveniencies the English Merchants now labour under by the present laws of Portugal, which prohibit the expor- tation of specie ; in consequence of which the Above restriction had already been in part removed. We hear from Inverness that a number of Scotch Highlanders, who had been abroad during last war, have lately engaged them- selves to go over to Corsica to serve as soldiers under General Paoli. The duty of one shilling on every pound weight of tea consumed in Great Britain, will be entirely taken off for a limited time. The additional duties on goods exported tc the Isle of Man from England, is said to be, 6d. per gallon - on British Plantation rum, is. per pound on bohea tea, is. 6d. per pound on green tea, 9d. per pound on coffee, 2il. per pound on tobacco ; and several other duties on other goods, such as wine, timber" Sec. And the said duties are to be applied to the administration of Jus- tice in the said island. . We are informed, that thirty guineas were not absolutely given for ten pounds of cherries at Covent Garden Market, on Thursday last, but only offered : A Gardener at Abb's Court, who brought the cherries, having previously promised them to an eminent Jew Merchant, to add to the desert at his wedding dinner. By recent letters from the East Indies there is advice, that the Spaniards had actually expended upwards of one million of piastres in repairing the old fortifications, and build- ing others at Manilla, the capital of Luconia, in the Philippine islands. A lease of some lands in the county of Cavan in Ireland, belonging to the Bishop of Meath, expiring the 12th of May last, posses- sion was given to his Lordship ; but in the following night, the floors, staircase, windows, and doors of the dwelling- house on the said lands, were carried off, and a few nights after the house was set on fire, and entirely consumed. X We hear the estate in Scotland, of which the deceased Lord Hope was heir, amounts to near forty thousand pounds per annum. According to a letter from St. Mary's, in Scilly, the sea is said to have encroached with- in these twelve months, upwards of forty inches upon the shore of one of those islands at low water mark, and continues visibly to increase. We hear from Chatham, that a few days ago, a quarrel had arisen between a large body of Artificers belonging to the yard there, and a party of Soldiers ; a battle en- sued, and, after much mischief, the latter re- mained conquerors. On Sunday last a person died in St. Mar- garet's Workhouse, who was brought thither about a fortnight before in man's apparel, and supposed to be of that sex ; but, when dead, the contrary was discovered. It was found, on enquiry, that she had used that dress many years, and had formerly been a housekeeper in the above parish. The oldest of her acquaintance always imagined her to be a man, never having seen her in a female dress. A very melancholy accident happened one day last week in Long- Reach, from the over- setting of a pleasure boat, wherein were three reputable tradesmen of Blackwall, and a boy ( the son of one of them ;) two of the men and the boy were drowned, but the father of the boy was taken up by a fishing- boat. What adds to this tragical event, and is very remark- able is, that the wives of these men happen- ed at the said time to be all lying in : one of them died with the first surprize the shocking news occasioned to her, and the other two were so much affected by it, that they are very dan- gerously ill ; as is likewise the surviving hus- band on the loss of his son, of whom he was particularly fond. We hear from Warwick, that on Friday se'nnight a duel was fought between- two Of- ficers of the Warwickshire Militia, due of whom was slightly wounded. At the ensuing summer assizes in the several counties of England and Wales, a regulation we are told, will be made as to the lodging, rent of Debtors, and a provision also made for Felons, at the county expence, for a fur- ther allowance of bread and other necessaries of life. Parma, May 23. The Infant, affected by the ravages made in Tuscany, and in the Bo- lonnois, by the diseases occasioned by scar- city, hath sent some Officers of the militia, with an order to go throughout his dominions, and provide grain for those communities which may be in want of it, and to administer to the poor the successors for which they may have occasion. Turin, May 27. An edict of the King is published, dated the iStli inst. whereby his Majesty forbids the amassing of grain, aud the exporting it to foreign countries ; and or- ders every person to make yearly, an exact declaration of the quantity he shall have reaped. Venice, May 19- The dearness of bread has put the people of Lucca into a disposition of rising. They signified their intentions by sticking up billets in the following effect ; se non cala il Pane un Soldo, ci darema a Leopoldo : [ If Bread does not fall a Soldo ( Penny) we will give our/ elves to Leopold.] On which the Regen- cy immediately increased the Weight of Bread, LONDON, June 13. The King of Prussia has now an army of 60,000 men, of his veteran regiments, in the dutchy of Cleves, which adjoins to Holland. We hear an eminent manufacturer at Bir- mingham, has contracted with an English Merchant in London, to furnish 30,000 mus- kets for the service of General Paoli, together with the like number of bayonets. We hear from Caithness in Scotland, that four young men were poisoned there some short time ago, occasioned by using white arsenick in a bowl of punch, which, by mis- take was bought at an Apothecary's shop for cream of tartar. According to letters from Paris, it was given out, that notwithstanding the late seizure of the Jesuits effects in Spain, the removal of these fathers to Corsica would probably enrich that island above two millions of livres. Letters from Gotha mention the Death of John Augustus, Duke of Saxony, second Bro- ther to the reigning Duke, aged Twenty Years and some Days, having been born the 14th cf April, 1747. There is now living in the Isle of Anglesea, a Fisherman, aged 111, who never had any illness great enough to stop him from follow- ing his profession, and still goes to sea in his own boat. Jeremiah Ryan, who was evidence at the last April session at the Old Bailey, against several of his accomplices for footpad robbe- ries, is ordered to be removed from New Prison to the Savoy, where he is to be tried by a general Court Martial for desertion.

Yesterday, as soon as the Malefactors, who were executed at Tyburn, were cut down one of them, who it seems was destitute of friends, was carried away by the mob to a Sand- pit in the Brick- fields, near Padding- ton, where they broke both his legs and arms to prevent the body's being taken as they al- ledged, by the Surgeons: after which they- threw him into the Pit without a coffin, and barely covered the body with a little sand was almost naked, and cut a most shocking figure,, the very humane Jack Ketch having stripped him of all that was worth taking be- fore he was cut down.

The Small Pox was of so very malevolent a Kind.__ that from the first Moment there was scarce a Glimpse of Hope. She herself was soon ac- quainted with the Danger, and met it with he most exemplary Piety, Patience, Resigna- tion, and Fortitude. Her Death was very easy, without Struggle or Convulsion, so that those about her scarce knew when she expired. All the Imperial Family, and the whole Court, are under the greatest Affliction on this me- lancholy Occasion. The Empress Queen continues in as fair a Way as possible. Though the Eruption prov- ed more copious than was at first imagined, it is certain that the Small- Pox is of the best Sort. f and mares allowed jib. less than colts & horses'. Wm.

CHESTER, June 16. To the PRINTER, & c. Concerning IL PENSEROSO. A RHAPSODY. Sold in London and Chester. THIS recent PUBLICATION repeatedly ad- vertised in your's, and other News- Papers, having undergone the Animadver- sions of three different Societies of CENSORS ; their several Sentiments concerning it, are here communicated to such, as, perhaps, may not peruse them in the Monthly Compilations. Imprimis, the CRITICAL REVIEWERS thus deliver their Sentiments : " The Author of this Rhapsody, from an Eminence in St. John's Church- yard, sur- veys the River DEE, and some of the most remarkable Places about Chester. This Prospect leads him into a Contemplation on the various Revolutions of those Places, and the Heroes, Princes, or Patriots who for- merly distinguished themselves in that Neighbourhood, by any memorable Tran- fashion. " The Notes are chiefly Historical, and calculated to illustrate the Text. " This Work will be entertaining to Those who are acquainted with the Scenes which are described. The Author makes use of old Words, and ancient Names, and ap- pears to be a poetical Antiquarian.'' CRITICAL REView for april 1767, p. 296. Next come the MONTHLY REVIEWERS, rather too prone to gratify the CARPERS and MALEVOLENT, and now, with some Petulancy, pronounce the Doom of poor PENSEROSO. This Cynical Set, retainers toR. Gr****** s, — publisher at the Metropolis, are apt to be ( Objicitur si non OFFA,) iracundior aequo, and ( like a late Sir FRANCIS WRONGHEAD, within our Memory, One of the TWELVE) SLapdash, condemn and. execute.—— Their Sentence is thus recorded : " If this Poem hath any Merit, it is en- tirely local, from the Objects it describes, and therefore we cannot recommend it be- yond the Precincts of St. John's Church- yard in Chester, where it was born, and where it was buried, in the Year of our Lord 1767, aged twenty Years." MONTHLY REVIEW for May, 1767, p. 409. Perhaps to soften, and make sweeter, We'll try this harsh Decree, in Metre. IL PENSEROSO, Objects describ'd, with Merit local, May save this Piece from Exit focale ; Yet We resolve to grant the Bard, No Laud beyond St. John's Church- yard, Wherein his PENSEY born and bred, Was buried also, ( lately dead,) With hallow'd Dirge, on early Bier, Alas ! but in his twentieth Year; ' AN.

Review " of new Books and pamphlet stating with Candour and Precision, the Design and Te dency of each Publication. >' p i ,6' of this Production, is the following mention : IL PENSEROSO: An Evening Contemplation in St. John's Church- Yard, cHESTER 4to. 11. Longman. In this poetical Performance the Author takes Occasion to describe the Places in the Vicinity of Chester; and has shewn him- self well skilled in the historic and ancient j Circumstances of that City, and its Envi- rons. All these are introduced with poeti- cal Propriety, and the Numbers in which they are conveyed, though not the most exquisite, are sufficiently harmonious for the Subject. The Heart of the Bard appears, through the Whole, to be animated with laudable Sensations; and his Tribute of grateful Praise to Dr. WILSON, late Bishop of Sodor and MAN, is such as every good Man will rejoice to see, both respecting the Subject and the Writer. In the 5th Page there is a Circumstance, which all the ANTIQUARIANS of England have' hitherto left unobserved, viz. That the Romans, by immense Labour, brought the River Dee to Chester, from a more dis- tant Channel in which it formerly flowed. How far this Opinion may be supported, we leave to the Author; but as he appears to be a Native of that Country, and well skilled in the Antiquities which it contains, we are apt to think he may be right in his Assertion. The whole Performance bespeaks the Man of Letters, and deserves the Perusal and Applause of such as are not too critical to be pleased with any Thing but their own Productions." We hear that the next Geneial Sessions of the Peace, with the Courts of Portmote and Crownmote, will be held in and for this City in Monday the 20th day of July next coming, - by ten of the cl ick in the forenoon. On friday the 5th inst. and again on the Day following the famous Charles Pleasants was tried at the Old Baily on two several In- dictments for Forgery, and acquitted of both, it being the Opinion of the Court, that his writing Acceptances to his Bills, in the Name of James Fitzherbert, was not in Fact, and Point of Law, a Forgery, as he, at that time, went by the Name of James Fitzherbert. He was remanded back to Newgate, in order to take his Trial at the next Assize at Derby. Yesterday se'nnight the Shropshire militia were disembodied at Shrewsbury. ,. WHITCHURCH RACES.

WE are told in the public papers, that no means can be thought of to render Provisions cheaper, and that as to Gentlemens letting their Estates out in large Farms, which is the principal for free of their present dearness, no hopes of redress can possibly be entertained, and therefore that this great and national evil must be left entirely to the care of Providence. But, Sir, I am afraid that Providence will not take care of those who neglect themselves ; and that, if we will not put our Shoulder's to the Wheels, we must Continue in the Mire. That there are methods of lowering the high price of Provisions, or at least of better enabling the Poor to purchase them as they are, is most certain ; and which may be easily found out by inquiring Into the causes of their present dearness: amongst which we may safely set down the following: high Taxes upon the Ne- cessaries of Life, high Rents, large Farms, the Bounty on Exportation of Corn, Luxury, the enormous Increase of this Metropolis, and the shameful Neglect of putting the Laws in Ex- ecution relative to the supplying our Markets with Provision. These, Sir, are the manifest causes of the present dearness of Provision ; and who will say, it is impossible for the Legislative Power to remove them In a great measure : Certainly, Sir, the high Taxes upon the Ne- cessaries of Life may be changed for others on the Luxuries of it; high Rents may be allow- ed ; large Farms may be divided ; the Bounty on Exportation of Corn may be 110 longer allowed ; Luxury may be curbed by proper Laws; a stop may be put to the monstrous In- crease of this Metropolis, and the Laws relative • to supplying our Markets with Provision, may be easily executed. The Legislative Power may do these things ; but to expect that Pro- vidence will do them, is vain and ridiculous. Your's, & c. COMMON SENSE. Chester, June 2, 1767.

By his Majesty's Royal Letters Patent. PIKE's Grand Antidote, WHICH cures the ITCH, and all Scorbutic Humours In Tin Boxes, is. 6d. Retail. It's a sovereign, efficacious, and safe Remedy ( never known to fail) for all EruptionS I and cutaneous Dissorders, of ever so long standing,* without Confinement, Daubing, or the least often five Smell.— It entirely exterminates, Root and Branch, all the redundant and peccant Humours by insensible Per- spiration j and is the most infallible Remedy ever yet offered to the Public. The Virtues are many ; the Ap- plication ( on the Hand only) is easy, gentle and uncom- mon, as particularised in the Direction therewith. Note, The great Similitude between the ITCH and the SCURVY, occasions our mentioning Dr. RAD- CLIFFE's ELIXIR, a the best Remedy for the SCUR- VY, if taken Spring and Fall. Out of the many Certificates of Cures that are daily sent us, for want of Room, we can only insert the following. This is to certify whom it may concern, That, about four Years ago, our Son Thomas, a Youth, afflicted with a violent Scorbutic Disorder, had a Scurf all over his Body, and spotted like one in the Measles, which rcduced him very weak, and affected his Speech When he was in this Condition we applied to several Surgeons;-- & c. in this Town, and got him recommended to the In- firmary as an Out- Patient; and finding he got little or no Relief from the Medicines he had from thence, or elsewhere, we were advised to try a Medicine, called Dr. Radcliffe's Famous Purging Elixir ; and that, after tak- ing the first Dose, he threw off his Stomach a great Quantity of red, tough, frothish Matter, which he con- tinued to do after every Dose, during the first Bottle ; he had a second Bottle, which purged and created him an Appetite. He continued 10 take a few Bottles more of the said Elixir, which with one Bottle of Dr. Bateman's Pectoral Drops ( taken alternately) through the Blessing of the Almighty, soon restored him to a perfect State of Health, and he has ha. d no Return of the Disorder since; which we voluntarily publish for the Benefit of others under the like Affliction. As witness our Ha ds Daniel Crisp, Smith and Farrier, at West- Gate, Newcaste- on- Tyne. Witness T. Slack, and Stephen Mandley. Also a Gentlwoman and her Daughter in Leicester, who had for a Long Time lain under the Misfortune of a dreadful Scorbutic Humour, and could find no Relief, though it cost her many Pounds to Doctors, were at last perfectly cured by this Elixir only. N. B. We advise and desire all such Persons, whose Dis- tempers have been of a long Continuance, not to meddle with this Medicine unless they are rejoined to go through with it; and then they need not fear as happy a Cure as a Gentleman of Bristol, who writes Word that be had been long afficted with an inveterate Scurvy, which had brought him into a Consumption, so that he was looked upon as incurable. he de- clares that by taking two Bottles of Dr. Radcliffe's Elixir, and two of Dr. Bateman's Pectoral Drops, he was capa- citated to walk to a Friend's House eleven Miles from the PLace of his Residence, and that in five Hours, though for Months before he had not been able to stand, his Pains had all left him, his Ulcers were dried up, and he remained as well at ever be was in his Life.
