Berrow's Worcester Journal. THURSDAY, May' 24, 1770. No. 3173. This Journal is published early in the Morning, and circulated in a very expeditions Manner; and will always contain, besides the most material News published in the London Papers on Tuesday Night, many interesting Articles of Intelligence, not to be found in other Country Papers till the Saturday or Monday following. SATURDAY'S POST. Arrived the Holland, Flanders, and French Mails. Trieste, April 30. We are assured that the Places of most considerable Strength in the Morea, still continue to make an obstinate Defence; and that the City of Patras is the only Place of Consequence of which the Russians have made themselves Masters, and even there the Castle is still in the Hands of the Turks. Toulon, April 30. His Majesty's Frigate the Tamponne, is arrived from Rochford, having on board 150 Pieces of Canon, from 6 to 12 Pounders, six Mortars, and 1, 500, 000 Piasters, which she took on board at Cadiz, for Marseilles and Genoa. LONDON, Thursday, May 17. Monday Night Lord C m and his Party effected a political Manoeuvre which had like to have been attended with great Success to their Cause ; for when Lord N h least expected it, a Motion was made respecting the Middle- sex Election; which so highly alarmed the Premier, that the ablest Speakers of the Court Side were forced to exert their utmost Abilities to evade the putting of the Question for near two Hours; while in the mean Time Messages were dispatched to every Quarter to summon the absent Members, whose Arrival at last car- ried it by a Majority. Yesterday the Sheriffs went up again to St. James's, to know his Majesty's Pleasure when he would chuse to permit the Lord Mayor, Al- dermen, and Common- Council to wait on him with the second Address, Petition, and Remon- strance of the Corporation of London; and his Majesty was pleased to appoint next Wednesday at Two o'Clock, We hear that the Sheriffs left a Copy of the Remonstrance with his Majesty We are informed that all the great Officers of State will come to Town on Wednesday Morn- ing, to attend his Majesty at St. James's at the I " Time of receiving the City Remonstrance. Some expect a patriotic Gentleman will address a great Personage in a few very respect- ful and loyal Words, after the above Business is over. It is said that Mr. Alderman Wilkes has re- ceived an Invitation from the Lord Mayor, to accompany him to St. James's on Wednesday next, in the State Coach. Yet it is asserted, that on Wednesday next Admittance at Court will be denied a certain Person in the Lord Mayor's Train; and that a Great Personage's Orders will be given as the Reason for it. We hear a Meeting of the principal Inhabi- tants of Westminster will soon be held in their Guildhall, to consider of a second Rem — ce to the Throne, and that the County of Middle sex will follow the Example. It is asserted that the real Obstacle of a Coali- tion among the Great, is their Difference of Sentiments on the Colony Affairs: Administra- tion are persuaded nothing but coercive Mea- sures ought to be pursued. On the other Hand, the Opposition are for lenient Proceedings, and a Reversal of all the violent Steps lately taken. It is reported that a Great Personage is for reconciling the two Parties at all Events, but he is over- ruled by a secret Adviser. It is said that an Address of Thanks to a Great Personage will soon be moved for, from a certain Quarter, for his glorious Partiality to the Scotch Nation. Hans Stanley, Esq; is appointed Governor of the lsle of Wight. Sir George Osborne, Bart, is appointed a Groom of the Bedchamber to his Majesty, in the Room of George Pitt, Esq; Sir Francis Bernard, Bart, has obtained Leave not to return any more to his Government of Massachusett's Bay. He is to have a Pension for Life of 8001. per Annum. The present Question before the Upper House is concerning the now Earl of Anglesey's Right to the Title and Estate of Anglesey. It is laid that the late Earl had three Wives at one Time; by the first he had no Children; by the second he had several Daughters; by the third he had one Son and several Daughters. This Son is laid to be the Plaintiff in the present Cafe. Yesterday a great Number of Witnesses were examined in the Anglesey Cause, which it is thought cannot be finally determined this Session of Parliament, on Account of its Length, Im- portance, and the vast Number of Witnesses to be examined. On Tuesday last a Cause was tried before Lord Chief Justice Wilmot, at Guildhall, London, wherein John Norton, Surgeon, of Golden- square, was Plaintiff, and James Kirk, of St. Paul's Church- yard, Toyman, Defen- dant, for having fold a spurious Medicine, which he calls Mardon's Drops, for Norton's Maredant's Drops. A Verdict was found for the Plaintiff, with Damages and Costs of Suit. We hear that Mr. Wilkes's polite Behaviour has gained him the Esteem of the whole Court of Aldermen, though some of them differ widely from him in Politicks. The Terms now offered to a certain unhappy Lady are as follow: Her Ladyship is to have Thousand per Annum for Life, if she will retire to France or Italy; to have her Jewels and other valuable Effects; and once a Year to be permitted to make a Visit of one Month to her Mother, in whose Presence she is to fee her Children. Doctor Alcock, of Lichfield, who is publish- ing a large Collection of Anthems, has lately been presented, by the Society of Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Catch Club in London, with a Gold Prize Medal, for composing the best Serious Glee. Yesterday Morning, between Three and Four o'Clock, a Fire broke out at the House of Mr Poole, in Palsgrave- Head Court, without Tem- ple Bar, which consumed the fame with all the Furniture. The Family were obliged to jump out of the Windows to save their Lives; three of whom were much hurt. The Houses of Mr. Williams, Surgeon; Mr. Wishaw, Taylor; great Part of Mr. Twining's Warehouse; and a Watchmaker's House, were likewise consumed. Not one House in the Court escaped the Fury of the Flames, but most of them were greatly damaged. Early Yesterday Morning a Silk Mercer's Shop in Piccadilly was broke open by two Men, when a Lad, about 16 Years of Age, who lay under the Counter, saw them enter with a lighted Candle, but he did not move, nor make any Noise till they had packed up several Pieces of Silk, and were carrying them off; he then started up, fired a Piece at them, loaded with Swan- shot, when they dropped the Goods, and made off: By the Blood found in the Shop, and on the Goods, one or both of them must have been wounded. It is said that, in consequence of a Petition, signed by several Persons of Reputation, in Fa- vour of the Widow of Mungo Campbell, and recommending her as a Woman of blameless Life, and a most deserving Object of Compas- sion, that the present Earl of Eglington has, with a Dignity becoming a noble Mind, grant- ed the unhappy Woman a comfortable Pension for Life. Yesterday the thirteen Malefactors, ordered for Execution, were carried from Newgate in five Carts, and executed at Tyburn. Most of them died like hardened Wretches: One of them, a very young Lad, as he approached the Gal- lows, toiled his Hat and Prayer- Book among the Mob; and another Prayer- Book being given him under the Gallows, just as he was going to be turned off, he flung that also among Croud, and was executed. Of the above thirteen Malefactors the eldest was not 23 Years of Age; and we are informed that one of them declared under the Gallows, that he had been guilty of five Murders, one of which was perpetrated on an old Chelsea Pen- sioner about two Years ago. A Combination had been entered into by some of the unhappy Men, executed Yesterday, to murder two of the Persons, called Lockers- up, at Newgate; for which Purpose Pistols were provided, but John Wood; who suffered for Burglary, being let into the Secret, divulged it, and frustrated the Scheme.

On Monday the 5 th Inst. the Lightning and Thunder were extremely terrible and awful in Barnsley and its Neigh- bourhood, and the more so, as there was not much Rain. At a Village called Pilley, about four Miles South of Barnsley, a Three- years- old Colt, a Two- years- old Filly, and a young Cow, belonging to one Benjamin Hammond of that Place, were all struck dead by the Light- ning, when standing all together, not far from the House, though when the Hides were taken off the Cattle, there did not appear to be the least Marks of Violence upon any one of them. A Hole was observed to be made in the Ground thereby; but providentially no further Mil- chief was done, though the Clap of Thunder ( hook the House in a very alarming Manner. — A Tree, at or near Hightone, about a Mile from Barnsley, and another in Lord Stafford's Estate at Stainsborough, were shivered in a fur- prizing Manner. And on Saturday last in the Afternoon, the Lightning and Thunder were again very awful and tremendous there, ac- companied with a most violent Rain, which raised a Rivulet to a great Height, but did no further Damage. On Saturday last, betwixt Three and Four o'Clock in the Afternoon, we had in this Neighbourhood a most violent Storm of Rain and Hail, attended with an almost continual Blaze of Lightning, and very heavy Claps of Thunder. The Lightning was so prodigiously violent and alarming, as to break many Win- dows; and it shook, or apparently shook, seve- ral Houses; it also killed two or three Sheep, at Killinghall, and a Mare belonging to Fran- cis Trapps, Esq; and beat down a House at Addle, in which were an old Woman and three of her Daughters, some of whom were much bruised. ANN BRIDGES, MILLENER, BEGS Leave to return her most sincere Thanks to her Friends, for the many Favours she has already received, and acquaints them and the Public in general, that she is now removed from the College Grates to the Cross, where it will be her constant Study to merit the Continuance of their Favours: And having just laid in a compleat Assortment of the most fashion- able GOODS, from London, she assures those Ladies who are pleased to favour her with their Commands, that they may depend upon being supplied in the genteelest Manner, and on the most reasonable Terms, by Their much obliged, And most obedient humble Servant, ANN BRIDGES.

" The Temper with which you have con- ducted all your Proceedings, has given Me great Satisfaction ; and I promise Myself the happiest Effects from the Firmness, as well as the Moderation, which you have manifested in the very critical Circumstances, which have attended your late Deliberations. " With respect to Foreign Affairs, I have nothing material to communicate to you. I will continue My Endeavours to appease, if possible, the Troubles which still prevail in some Parts of Europe; or, at least, to prevent them from spreading farther. In all Events, it shall be My first and constant Care to watch over the lnterests, and to preserve, undimi- nished, the Rights of My People.

The Provision you have been able to make in this Session for discharging so considerable a Sum, without lay- ing any further Burthen on My Subjects, cannot but be highly advantageous to Public Credit, " My Lords, and Gentlemen, " I mast earnestly recommend to you to exert, in your respective Counties, the same Zeal and Prudence that you have shewn in Parliament, for promoting the Peace, and the Welfare of the Kingdom. Nothing can be so favourable to the Wishes of those, who look with Jea lousy or. the Strength and Prosperity of this Country, as the Prevalence of Animosities and Dissentions amongst Ourselves. Let it there fore be your Care, to discountenance every Attempt to infuse groundless Suspicions and Discontent into the Minds of your Fellow subjects. Make them sensible of My constat Attention to promote Their Happiness; and convince Them, that nothing can so effectually secure their Liberties, as the Maintenance of every Part of Our excellent Constitution in its due Force and Authority " The Parliament was afterwards prorogued to Thursday the 19th of July next. [ Tus far Gazette. LONDON, Saturday, May 19. On Tuesday last his Grace the Duke of Bol- ton was turned out of his Office of Governor of the Isle of Wight, for voting and protesting against the Measures of the present profligate Junto His Grace is the only placed Peer since the Removals of Lord Camden from being Chancellor Great Britain, and of the Duke of Manchester and the Earl of Coventry, from being Lords of the Bedchamber, who has no- bly dared, in Defiance of ministerial Threats, Dignity of a British Peer. On Wednesday last, when the Sheriffs' of London attended at St. James's, they demanded of the Lord in Waiting, if the Refusal to the City Remembrancer ( on presenting the late Remonstrance) was by Accident or Design ? They were answered by Design. On which the patriotic Sheriffs replied, If he was not to accompany them at presenting the intended Remonstrance next Wednesday, they could not authenticate his M y's Answer, as he was in that Office, before his M y's Accession to the Throne, always admitted, and was the only Person from which the Lord Mayor was to re- port the Answer to the Aldermen and Court of Common Council. — This spirited Behavour of the Sheriffs has gained them immortal Honour and the universal Approbation of the indepen- dent Citizens of London. On Wednesday last the Lord in Waiting at St. James's would not have permitted the City Remembrancer to have entered the Closet, had not his Majesty sent Mr. Vernon, Groom of the Chamber, with Orders to admit him.

Yesterday General Paoli had a long Confe- rence with the Russian Ambassador, at the lat- ter's House in Soho- square ; and it is said that the General will shortly embark for Peters- burgh, to take on him an important Command in her Czarish Majesty's Armies. A private Letter from Dublin intimates, that there is an Intention in that Capital to follow the Example of the capital of the whole British Empire, by beginning with a Petition to his Majesty for Redress of Grievances under which that Nation now groans, on Account of the sudden unreasonable, and arbritrary Prorogation of its Parliament; which Petition, if not favou- rably answered, will be followed by an Address, Remonstrance, and Petition, & c. Yesterday the long contested Cause of Jactita tion brought by Thomas Harvey, Esq; against the Hon. Mrs. Ann Loghlan, his Wife, after 18 Years Cohabitation together, came on to be heard before the Worshipsul Dr. J. Bettesworth, Chancellor of the Diocese of London, at Doc tors Commons; when after a Hearing of eight Hours, the Judge was pleased to pronounce against the Marriage, and declared Mr. Harvey free from all matrimonial Contracts. A Gentleman, in a Highland Dress, with Bagpipes, came up to Mr. Wilkes, at Mrs. Cor- nely's Masquerade, and played two or three Tunes to him. Mr. Wilkes told him, " If he played to all Eternity, he would never dance to the Bagpipes." The Highlander asked, " To what Tune would he dance ?" Mr. Wilkes answered, " To any but the Bagpipe and the German Flute." Yesterday a Fish Woman was brought before Mr. Alderman Wilkes for abusing one of her Neighbours; on which she was ordered to be committed to Bridewell: As she was going out she turned round and told him, that she wished she had known how he would have served her at the Time she put out 45 Candles, and burnt all her Baskets to make a Bonfire on the Day he was released.

Queen's Palace, St. James's Park, May 22. HIS Morning between Eight and Nine o'Clock, the Queen was hap- pily delivered of a Princess. Her Royal Highness the Princess Dowa ger of Wales, his Grace the Arch- bishop of Canterbury, several Lords of His Majesty's most Honorable Privy Council, and the Ladies of Her Majesty's Bed- Chamber, were present. - Her Majesty is, God be praised, as well as can be expected; and the young Prin- cess is in perfect Health. — London Gazette. Summonses are issued to the Aldermen and Common Council to attend the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs with the Address To- morrow. We are assured that Mr. Alderman Wilkes will not go to St. James's To- morrow. — Mr. Wilkes is too polite to go into any Man's House to whom he knows his Presence would be dis agreeable. It is said that, a Remonstrance will be pre- sented To- morrow from the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of Cambridge. Last Night his Majesty paid a Visit to his Mother at Carlton- House ; and afterwards there was a Council held at the same Place. The Prorogation ( instead of Dissolution) of Parliament, has, for some Days past, thrown L— d C m into such an horizontal Posi- tion, that he seems to have no other Motion than what rises from— Insanity. It would seem, said a Gentleman, in a certain Place, on a late Occasion, by the Plan of Mea- sures adopted and pursued, as if the M y were determined, seeing their own Danger while Things remain in a State of Peace, and Atten- tion is given to what passes of a domestic Na- ture, to involve this Country in ruinous Cavils and Contentions, that they may seek Safety in the general Confusion. Else why the present unnatural Disputes with, and despotic Conduct towards our Colonies! Why the commencing, unprovoked, Quarrels of a most dangerous Na- ture with a neighbouring Island. mouth, by the Colony Agents, t0 be forwarded in the first Packet to their American Constitu- ents, informing them that the British Parlia- ment had been prorogued without their having been able to procure the lead Redress for the Grievances of his Majesty's petitioning Sub- jects on that Continent. On Saturday a Messenger arrived at his Ex- cellency the French Ambassador's, from Ver- sailles, with the News that the Marriage of the Dauphin and Dauphiness of France was solem- nized there on Wednesday. A few Days ago the following most extraor- dinary Scene was acted in the Privy Council Chamber at Dublin : The Privy Counsellors being all summoned, as many as were in Ire- land attended ; and, while the Lords and Gen- tlemen were standing behind the Chairs, just ready to take their Seats, they were desired, in that Posture, to hear the King's Letter read, containing a Lift of the Privy Council. In this List the Names of the Earls of Shannon, Lanes- borough, and Louth; Sir William Fownes, Bt. Sir William Mayne, Bt. and the Right Hon. HerculesLangford Rowley, were omitted. These Names were then struck out of the Council- Book, it being his Majesty's Pleasure that they should no longer be Members of his Privy Coun- cil. This extraordinary Sentence having been read and executed, ( for indeed this Business had much the Appearance of a Court of Inquisition, calling up the condemned Criminals to hear the Sentence read) another Letter from his Ma- jesty was produced and read containing a second List of his Privy- Conncil in Ireland; in which the Names of Lord Miltown, Sir William Of- borne, & c. & c. ( which have appeared in the Papers) were added; and they were accord- ingly inserted in the Council Book. As soon as this Business was finished, the Duke of Lein- ster wrote immediately to the Ministry, ac- quainting them, that as they had thought pro- per to strike his Friend Sir William Mayne, Bart, off the List of Privy Counsellors, he de- sired to be struck off that Lift also. It may be a Question hereafter, whether the above Lords and Gentlemen could be legally struck off the List of Privy Counsellors, as the Privy Council of Ireland are supposed to be a Branch of the Legislature of that Kingdom. The obvious, as well as true Reason for striking the above Persons off the List of Privy Counsellors, was their independent Conduct in Parliament, last Session. From various Accounts, the State of Affairs in Ireland move towards a critical Situation. They write from Venice, that 30,000 Turks were making a hasty March towards the Strait of Corinth, in order to enter the Morea and oppose the Russians. Yesterday Morning, at Half past Three, a Fire broke out in the Hay- Loft of a Stable, at the Bottom of Wych- street, behind St. Cle- ment's, and adjoining to the Lamb Inn, but by the timely Arrival of Engines was soon got under, and the Danger thought to be over, when suddenly the House of one Gray, a Pawn- broker, was discovered to be on Fire, which there is the greatest Reason to believe was wil- fully done, some Combustibles being found burning in different Parts of the House ; upon which the Pawnbroker was taken before Justice Fielding, who committed him to Newgate for further Examination. Twenty- three Hundred Pounds had lately been insured at the Sun Fire Office on this Pawnbroker's Stock. The following is a Copy of the Address, Re- monstrance, and Petition, which is to be pre- sented to his Majesty To- morrow. To the KING's Most Excellent Majesty, The humble Address, Remonstrance, and Petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Commons, of the City of London, in Common Council assembled. " May it please your Majesty, " WHEN your Majesty's most faithful Subject, the Citizens of London, whose Loyalty and Affection have been so often and so effectually proved and experienced by the illustrious House of Brunswick, are labouring under the Weight of that Displeasure which your Majesty has been advised to lay upon them, in the Answer given from the Throne to their late humble Application, we feel our- selves constrained, with all Humility, to approach the Royal Father of his People. " Conscious, Sire, of the purest Sentiments of Vene- ration which they entertain for your Majesty's Person, we are deeply concerned, that what the Law allows, and the Constitution reaches, hath been misconstrued by Mi- nisters, Instruments of that Influence which shakes the Realm, into Disrespect to your Majesty. " Perplexed and astonished as we arc, by the awful Sentence of Censure lately passed upon this City in your Majesty Answer from the Throne ; we cannot, without surrendering all that is dear to Englishmen, forbear most humbly to supplicate, that your Majesty would deign to grant a more favourable interpretation to this dutiful though persevering Claim of our invaded Birth- Rights; nothing doubting that the Benignity of your Majesty's Nature will, to our unspeakable Comfort, at length break through all the secret and visible Machination to which the City of London owes its late severe Repulse ; and that your Kingly Justice, and Fatherly Tenderness, will disclaim the malignant and pernicious Advice which the cleared Rights of the Subject, namely, to petition tlTe King for Redress of Grievances, to complain of the Violation of the Freedom of Election, and to pray for a Dissolution Parliament, to point out Mal- practice in Administration, and to urge the Removal of evil Mini- sters, hath, under the Generality of one compendious Word, been indiscriminately checked with Reprimand; and your majesty's afflicted Citizens of London nave heard, from the Throne it self, that the Content¡ oí their humble Address, Remonstrance, and Petition, laying their Complaints and Injuries at the Feet of their Sovereign, as Father of his People, able and willing to redress their Grievances, cannot but be considered by your Majesty, as disrespectful to yourself, injurious to your Parliament, aid irreconcilable to the Principles of the Constitution. " Your Majesty cannot disapprove, that we here as- sert the clearest Principles of the Constitution, against the insidious Attempt of evil Counsellors to perplex, con- sound, and shake them: We are determined to abide by those Rights and Liberties, which our Fore fathers bravely vindicated, at the ever- memorable Revolution, and which their Son will ever resolutely defend. We therefore now renew, at the Foot of the Throne, our Claim to the indispensible Right of the Subject, --- a full, free. and unmutilated Parliament, legally chosen in all its Members;-- a Right which THIS House 0f Commons have manifestly violated, depriving, at their Will and Pleasure, the County of Middlesex of one of its legal representatives, and arbitrarily nominating, as a Knight of the Shire, a Person not elected by the Majority of the Freeholders. As the only Constitutional Means of Reparation now lest for the injured Electors of Great Britain, we implore, with most urgent Supplications, the Dissolution of this present Parliament, the Removal of evil Ministers, and the total Extinction of that fatal Influence, which has caused such national Discontent. 11 In the mean Time, Sire, we offer our constant Prayers to Heaven, that your Majesty may reign, as Kings can only reign, in and by the Hearts of a loyal, dutiful, and free People " , WORCESTER, Thursday, May 24. The Assize of Bread continues the same as in our last _ On Saturday last was held, at Hooper's Cof- fee House, the first Meeting of the Lord Lieu- tenant and Deputy Lieutenants for the County of Worcester, and for this City, when his Lordship and the Gentlemen unanimously de- termined to raise the Militia both for the County and City, and Precepts were made out ac- cordingly, which will soon be delivered to the proper Officer : In the mean Time, we think it a Duty incumbent on us, in order to prevent Persons incurring certain Pains and Penalties, through Ignorance of the Laws relating to the Militia, to publish the Substance of some par- ticular Clauses in the Militia Act of the 2d of his present Majesty; whereby it is enacted, That if any Constable, or other Officer, shall refuse to return, upon Oath, at the Time and Place appointed, a true and perfect List of all Persons liable to serve as Militia- men, or shall not conform to such Orders as he shall from Time to Time receive from the Lord Lieute- nant or Deputy Lieutenants, & c. or shall be guilty of any Fraud or Partiality in making out his List; such Constable, & c. will subject himself to one Month's Imprisonment, or a Fine of 5I. That whoever shall, by any Gratuity, Gift, or Reward, or Promise thereof, or by any Threat, endeavour to prevail on any Constable, or other Officer, to make a false Return, or to erase or omit the Name of any Person who ought to be inserted in his said Lift; such Offender is to forfeit the Sum of 50I. That if any Person shall refuse to tell his Christian and Sirname, or the Name of any Man residing in his House, to any Constable, or other Officer authorised by the Act to de- mand the same ; he shall forfeit 10I. That if Information be given, that any Person, in- serted in the Lists to be returned, shall be de- seribed as an Apprentice, but hath been frau- dulently bound, in order to avoid serving, the Deputy Lieutenants may examine into the Mat- ter, upon Oath; and, if it shall appear to be a Fraud, may appoint such collusive Appren- tice to serve. And the Person to whom such Apprentice was so fraudulently bound, shall forfeit 10I. And, to prevent Mistakes in forming the Lifts of Persons liable to serve in the said Mi- litia, we think it equally necessary to give a Specification of those Persons who are exempt from serving ; viz. All Persons under eighteen and above forty- five Years of Age; all Peers of this Realm, all Persons who shall serve as Com- mission Officers in any Regiment, Troop, or Company in his Majesty's other Forces, or in any one of his Majesty's Castles or Forts ; all Non- commission Officers or private Men serv- ing in any of his Majesty's other Forces, all Commission Officers serving, or who have served four Years in the Militia ; and all Persons being Members of either of the Uni- versities ; all Clergymen and licensed Teachers of all separate Congregations; all Constables and such other Peace Officers; all articled Clerks, Apprentices, Seamen or Seafaring Men ; all Persons mustered, trained, and doing Duty in any of his Majesty's Docks, for the Service thereof; all Persons being free of the Com- pany of Watermen of the River Thames; and all poor Men who have three Children born in Wedlock. On Monday last Major General Monckton reviewed, in Powick's Ham, near this City, Lieutenant General Waldegrave's Regiment of Dragoon Guards, who made a most noble Ap- pearance, and gave great Satisfaction in the Performance of their Exercise and Evolutions. Since our last the two following Persons have been committed to our County Gaol, viz. John Abbotts, charged on the Oath of John Abbotts, with stealing a Gown, a Pair of Sheets, a Gold Ring, and other Things; and John Bevan. of Martley, charged with stopping and assaulting on the Highway, William Jones, of Lower Areley, With Intent to rob him.

Thomas Botam, of Gateshead in Durbam, Druggist, May 29, 30, June 30, at Harty's Coffee- House in Kingston upon Hull. YESTERDAY his Grace the Duke of Richmond made a Motion in the House of Lords, for taking the Affairs of America into Consideration. He observed, that tho' his Majesty at the Opening of the Session had recommended the State of Government in America, to their serious Attention, yet not one Word hid since been said upon the Sub- ject in that House. — Administration had never so much as appointed a Day for so important a Consideration.— Even when the frivolous and trifling Revenue Acts were repealed, they would not utter a Syllable. He should there- fore offer to the Consideration of their Lord- ships a Number of propositions, in the room of Resolutions; the FIRST of which his Grace read as follows : First, Resolved, That in several of his Ma- jelly's Colonies in North America, Disorders have of late prevailed, prejudicial to the Trade and Commerce of this Kingdom, and destruc- tive to the Peace arid Prosperity of the said Colonies. Upon which Lord Hillsborough stood up, and confessed himself to be the Culprit [ his own Word; yet without offering any Sort of Justification, or making any Kind of Defence, and without going into the Merits of the Ques- tion, only saying, that the Affairs of America ought to be left to the Consideration of the Ministry, who might form some Plan during the Recess of Parliament ( though for these two Years past every Measure respecting Ame- rica has been originated in Parliament — How contradictory of themselves!) he moved to adjourn. However, before the Question to adjourn was put, the following Resolutions were read ; 2. Resolved, That the Letter of the Earl of Hillsborough, of the 22d of April, 1768, to Francis Bernard, Esq; Governor of the Mas- sachusets Bay, was a common Office Letter, without any particular Mark, or special Di- rection, for keeping the same, or any Part of the fame, secret. 3. Resolved, That it does not appear that any Direction of Secrecy had been given in any separate Letter* or Paper, transmitted with the said Letter. 4. Resolved, That the said Letter did con- tain an Order for dissolving the Assembly of the Province of Massachusets Bay, upon their Refusal to comply with certain Propositions. 5. Resolved, That Governor Bernard did lay the said Propositions before the Assembly, and did threaten the said Assembly with a Dis- solution, and its Consequences; and did, in Vindication and Support of such Proceedings, - lay before the Assembly the said Letter of the Earl of Hillsborough. - 6. Resolved, That the directing the Dissolu tion of the Assemblies of North America, upon their Refusal to comply with certain Propositions, operated as a Menace injurious to the deliberate Capacity of the Assemblies, excited Discontent, and contributed to pro- duce unjustifiable Combinations. 7. Resolved, Thar the Assemblies of North America having been dissolved, for rot disa- avowing or discountenancing certain Combi nations, the suffering new Assemblies to sit, without disavowing or discountenancing the said Combinations, was a Proceeding full of Inconsistency, and tending to lower, in the Minds of his Majesty's Subjects in America, all Opinion of the Wisdom and Firmness of his Majesty's Councils. 8 Resolved, That Lord Botetourt, his Ma- jesty's Governor of the Colony of Virginia, was instructed, by a Letter from the Earl of Hillsborough, in the following Words: " His Majesty relies on your Prudence and Fidelity for such an Explanation of his Measures, as may tend to remove the Prejudices which have been excited by the Misrepresentations of those who are Enemies to the Peace and Prosperity of Great Britain and her Colonies, and to re- establish that mutual Confidence and Affection upon which the Glory and Safety of the British Empire depends. 9. Resolved, That these his Majesty's Mea- sures appear, by the said Letter, to be Mea- sures concerning the Distinction of certain Prin- ciples of Taxation, and the Repeal of certain Taxes imposed by Authority of Parliament. 10. Resolved, That in Consequence of the said Instructions, Lord Botetourt was authorised ( as far as the Letter of a Secretary of State was Authority) to state these Measures as his Ma- jesty's Measures, and to explain the same according to his Notions of Prudence. 11. Resolved, That Lord Botetourt did ac- cordingly assure the Assembly, that his Ma- jelly would rather lose his Crown, than preserve it by Deceit. 1 2. Resolved, That this Declaration is highly improper, inasmuch as it is personally involv- ing his Majesty in the Measures of his Ministers. 13. Resolved, That the said Assurance related to the Repeal of certain Taxes, and the Dis- tinction of certain Duties. 14. Resolved, That it is unwarrantable, of dangerous Consequence, and an high Breach of the Privilege of Parliament, to promise to the assemblies in North- America, the Interposition or Influence of his Majesty, or of his confiden- tial Servants with Parliament, in any Manner which may tend to create an Opinion in those Assemblies, that such Interposition or Influence must necessarily bring on a Repeal of any Du- of Parliament. 15. Resolved, That it is highly derogatory from his Majesty's Honour, and from the Free- dom of parliamentary Deliberation, to pledge the Faith of the Crown to the said Assemblies, for the repealing or laying on, or continuing, or not laying of any Taxes or Duties what- soever. 16. Resolved, That to give Assurances in his Majesty's Name distinguishing certain Prin- ciples of Taxation, and disclaiming an Inten- tion to propose any Taxes within the said De- scription, in order to establish and justify un- warrantable Distinctions, has a Tendency fur- ther to disturb the Minds of his Majesty's Sub- jects in America, and to weaken the Authority of lawful Government. 17. Resolved, That to lay before this House Suggestions of Treason, or Misprision of Trea- son, subsisting in America, in order to bring this House into a Plan for the repressing and punishing such supposed Treason and Mispri- sions of Treason, when in Reality no such Treasons or Misprisions of Treason did subsist, or if they did subsist, no Measures whatsoever have been taken or appear to have been in- tended for apprehending and punishing the Persons concerned in the same, is an audacious Insult on the Dignity of Parliament, and in its Consequences tends, either to bring a Reflexion on the Wisdom and Justice of Parliament, or to encourage Treason or treasonable Practices by neglecting to carry into Execution Measures recommended by Parliament. 13. Resolved, That these many ill- judged and inconsistent Proceedings have been a prin- cipal Cause of the aforesaid Disorders. Lord Shelburne observed, " That such Re- solutions against the Culprit, being moved to be put off by himself, was such a manifest Vio- lation of Justice, and such a Prostitution of Parliament, that he hoped IMPEACHMENT would soon follow. He reproached Admini- stration for having put into the King's Mouth, at the Beginning of the Session, a Recom- mendation of the Affairs of America, as one of the principal Objects for the Consideration of Parliament; and then suffering every Dav to elapse, without so much as noticing that great Object ; and now that it was come to the last Day, and the Matter moved by the noble Duke, they with a moll shameful and scandalous Effrontery, avoided all Enquiry, by moving and putting the Question to adjourn. The Ministry refused to take any Notice of the proposed Resolutions ; they only called out for the Question to adjourn, which being put, was carried. Does not this Circumstance, and does not every Day's Experience, prove the Necessity, the absolute Necessity, there is, for all the King- dom to petition for the Dissolution of the present corrupt, venal, AND SLAVISH PARLIAMENT? WHEREAS several Men have deserted from a Party of the 62d Regi- ment of Foot, recruiting at Kidderminster and Wolverhampton; Notice is hereby given to all or any of the above Deserters, that if they sur- render themselves to Lieutenant William Giles, or any of the Party at Kidderminster, or at the Old Bell Inn in Wolverhampton, shall have a free Pardon.

By His Majesty's Letters Patent, ( Granted to WALTER. LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) is recommended the Justly Famous PILL, Called in the Patent, PILULA SALUTARIA; And there pronounced to be a Cure for the VENEREAL DISEASE, SCURVY, and RHEUMATISM. IN fifteen or eighteen Days it generally cures those cruel Disorders, and where it fails of perfectly restoring Health ill that Time, the Patient has the happy Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being restored , let the Degree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excel- lency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the com- plaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter, which they soon dislodge and expell. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Restorer, by taking only eight single Pills ( as instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligation to them, that whatever be promised himself from them they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and universal Fame. These Pills are most worth a Place in the Cabinet of Masters and Captains of ships, and the mores so, for that they require no Confine- ment, nor Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Cli- mates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when | Salivation fails.
