Berrow's Worcester Journal. THURSDAY, August 2, 1770. Notwithstanding this Journal is, in most Places, distributed at least a whole Day before any other Country News Paper of the same Date, and also many Hours before the Arrival of the London Mail, it not only contains the most material News published in London on Tuesday Night, but many interesting Articles of Intelligence, not inserted in other Country Papers before the Saturday following. SATURDAY'S POST. COUNTRY NEWS. Canterbury, July 17. THE following extraordinary Circumstance happened last Saturday Night at an Inn in this City: A young Nobleman of the first Distinction, with his two sisters, came there in a Post- Coach and Four, with its Blinds close shut. As soon as the Coach stopped in the Yard, all the Servants belonging so the Inn were sent out of the Way, and none were suffered to come near the Coach bat their own Attendants. One of the Ladies sat near two Hours, and then ordered all the Candles in the House to be put put, the Gates to be shut, and even the Master and Mistress of the House to be absent, while a Chair was brought by her own Servants, to receive her from the Coach, and carry her to Bed. She remained at the Inn till Two o'Clock the next Day, when the fame Precautions were made Use of as before, to carry her to her Coach, which immediately drove off, with the Blinds up, towards Dover. It was fol- lowed, in about four Hours after, by another Coach, attended by two Servants in the fame Liveries. Both Coaches had a Ducal Coronet, with a Cypher R. It is said they are going to the German Spa. Newcastle, July 21. By a private Letter from Dumfries, we are informed that one Day last Week an English Rider, in his Way from Dumfries to Glasgow, was attacked at Erich- Stone Brae, by two Fellows, who robbed him of 1401. in Specie, and afterwards beat and bruised him in a most cruel Manner. Two old Batchelors died lately at Bishop- Auckland, and left a Maiden Sister, aged about Eighty. After their Deaths, upwards of 900I. was found on the Tog of a Bed, mostly in Crown and Half- Crown Pieces : The old Maid, to put an End to the Visits of a Number of Lovers, gave the Money to her Nephew, Mr. Bird, Ma- thematical Instrument - Maker, in the Strand, London. LONDON, Thursday, July 26. We are assured, notwithstanding any Reports to the contrary, that there will not be the least Change in any Part of the Administration du- ring the Recess of Parliament. We hear, that notwithstanding the E— of N — n was called to Town with Intent to ask his Advice in the present critical Situation of Affairs, yet his Advice was so greatly op- posed, that no Attention has been paid to it, nor have any Measures been determined on. It is certain, that several Visits have passed between the Marquis of Rockingham and Lord Mansfield ; and that the Marquis has frequently - visited his Lordship at Caen- Wood. We are assured that a certain great Lawyer has left written Instructions with a Great Per- sonage, to direct him and the Ministry how to conduct themselves during his Absence in the Country. The Parliament will certainly meet either the 6th or 9th of November next ; and the Reason of this early ( though in Fact but proper) Time of Meeting, is the Necessity of bringing the Affairs of America under the Consideration of Parliament ; for by a Resolution which the Council have come to, the Ministry can take no farther Steps without the Aid of Parliament. The Substance of the Resolution is, " That the Bostonians have forfeited their Charter : And therefore to support this Resolution, Par- liament mull take away the Charter." When the Premier met L N at Court, he told him, " Old Friend, you'll be offered the Seals." That may be ( replied surly Bob) but I'll be damn'd if they make any Impression. The Profits of the Place in Ireland that Col. Luttrell has obtained the Reversion of, we hear, amount to near 2000I. per Annum. A certain great D — has advised his M-— y to let the young Princes make a Tour through England, as it is imagined their innocent At- tachments may in some Measure recover his loll Popularity. Orders are given for Apartments to be fitted up at St. James's, for the Reception of the Prin- cess of Brunswick, who is expected to come to England along with her Royal Mother the Prin- cess of Wales. This Day a Court of Common Council was held at Guildhall, when a Motion was made by Mr. Bellas, to set up the Names of the late independent Jurymen in Guildhall, with a proper Introduction suitable to the Occasion, which Motion was carried in the Affirmative. A new Bank, we hear, is shortly to be esta- blished by Sir Robert Ladbroke and Company, which is to be fixed on more lucrative Princi- ples for the Money- Lodgers of any Bank in England, Persons who make Lodgements hav- ing Two per Cent. Interest after three Days from the Date of depositing. The Expediency of having a sufficient Num- ber of Sailors at home to man a Fleet in cafe of Emergency, has been canvassed in the Privy Council several Times; and it is resolved, it is laid, to man several Ships now in Commis- sion, with their full Complement of Men, to be draughted off to other Ships on Occasion. Orders have lately been sent from the War Office to Ireland, for raising all the Regiments on that Establishment to their full Complement of Men. It is now assured, that the late confirmed Success of the Ruffians in the Morea has deter- mined the French and Spanish Courts, to carry into Execution the Scheme they have long me- ditated, of stopping the further Progress of the Russian Arms. This will account perhaps for their numerous Armaments, and the great naval Preparations making in all the Ports of his Christian Ma- jesty's Dominions. The late Union of the Houses of Austria and Bourbon, by the Marriage of the Emperor's Sifter to the Dauphin of France, and the strong Family Compact of France, Spain, Naples, Parma, and perhaps Portugal, make the Ro- man Catholic Scale in Europe greatly prepon- derate. Great Britain is certainly in such a Crisis justified in supporting the Russians with Vigour, by admitting their Fleets into our Ports, by victualling them, and permitting our Seamen to instruct and assist them, as far as is consistent with our own Interest. It is whispered that a northern Potentate has renewed a Demand of a very extraordinary Nature on the B sh Court. The Dutch feeing the present fluctuating Si- tuation of Affairs in Europe, have prudently sent Reinforcements to all their Islands and Forts in the South and Indian Seas. By the latest Accounts from Hamburgh, it is observed, that Prussian recruiting Parties swarm every where, for upwards of forty Miles round ; and that the greatest Preparations are making in that City for the Reception of their Danish Majesties, who are soon expected there in their Way to pay their Respects to their Mother, the Princess Dowager of Wales. We hear Advice is received by a Vessel from New York, that the said Colony and four others proposed a Congress at the Town of Norwalk, in Connecticut, to the Merchants at Boston, which the latter declined, as it was surmised the Intention of the Congress was to break up the Agreement against importing Goods ; giv- ing for Excuse, that they were only one to many, and therefore might be out- voted. When the News of this Refusal arrived at New York, the Merchants met, and then went round the different Wards of the Town to take the Opi- nion of the Merchants and Traders concerning opening the Port for the Importation of English Goods ; after which it appeared, by a great Majority, that the Port should be opened, with the Exception of Paper, Glass, Painters Co- lours, and Tea ; that against next December, when the Repeal of the three first Articles commences in America, they also may be imported : But the Exception against Tea is to remain in Force till that Duty is repealed. The Money received at the Ports of Cadiz and Lisbon, for Fish, Flour, and Indian Corn, and lately in the Ports of France for the two last, on Account of the Devastation which the Floods have made in many Provinces of that Country, has actually been returned to the Merchants in America in Specie, which used to centre here for British Manufactures. A Letter from Leghorn mentions, that the French now carry on a very lucrative Trade with the Island of Corsica, the Returns of which besides arc made in Wines, Oil, Bees- Wax, Ship- Timber, excellent Marbles, & c. Yesterday the Purser of the Earl Ashburn- ham East Indiaman, Capt. Peirce; and of the Osterly , late Capt. Welch ; came to the India- House with an Account of the above Ships be- ing safe arrived off the Start from China : The first failed on her Voyage from the Downs the 18th of January 1769, and the other on the 30th of the fame Month. They bring an Ac- count that the Britannia, Capt. Rous, from Bengal and Madras ; the Duke of Grafton, Capt. Sampson, from Bengal ; the Neptune, Capt. Gore ; the Norfolk, Capt. Buggen, from China; and the Duke of Albany, late Capt. Stewart, from Bencoolen, are all arrived at St. Helena. An Affair that has lately happened at Ver- sailles has made much Noise. Lady Molyneux, now at that Court, went to pay a Visit to Ma- dame Barre. While she was there, the King came in. On his Entrance her Ladyship rose up to depart ; but his Majesty intreated her to flay, and was, after some Conversation, so charmed with her Person and Wit, that it is reported he made a Declaration of his Passion : His Affection, however, since this Visit, is en- tirely alienated from Madam Barre. How this Affair will end is at present uncertain. Yesterday a Romish Priest renounced the Er- rors of the Church of Rome. Copy of a Letter from Lesley Grove, Commander of the Hillsborough Packet, to the Post- Masters General, dated at Falmouth, July 23. " I beg Leave to acquaint your Lordships with the following Account, which I received at Cape Nicola Mole, off the Island of Hispa- niola, where I was under the Necessity of stop- ping, in my Way from Jamaica, as your Lord- ships will fee by my Journal, transmitted this Day to the Board. — On Sunday, the 3d of June, about 15 Minutes after Seven in the Evening, they felt, at Port Nicola Mole, four violent Shocks of an Earthquake ; the most se- vere lasted two Minutes and a Half, accompa- nied with a Noise much like the Echo that is heard from the Hills after the firing of Can- non, but the Town fortunately received no Damage. And, by a French Sloop of. War, that arrived there three Days after, from Port au Prince on the fame Island, they received the melancholy Account of the total Demolition of that City, not one House left standing, and above 500 Persons buried in the Ruins : The severe Shock there lasted four Hours. The Towns of Petit Gouave and Leogane have equally suffered, but few of the Inhabitants perished. The Plains of Leogane, Cul de Sac, Port au Prince, and Petit Gouave, have not escaped, all their Sugar Works being totally destroyed, and a small Town, called La Croix de Bougust, with the greatest Part of the Inha- bitants swallowed up. St. Mart's, Port de Paix, the Cape, and Fort Dauphin, only felt the Shock as they did at the Mole. It is much feared the South Part of the Island has also suffered, but there ' was no Account received from that Part of the Island at Nichola Mole when I left it, which was on the 13th of June. " The Inhabitants at the Mole apprehend Jamaica has felt the Shock, but as I was, on on the 3d- of June in the Evening, only fix or leven Miles to the Southward of the Island of Morant Harbour, and felt nothing of it, I flatter myself it has escaped." On Monday Evening a Marshal- Man ar- rested an Officer in St. James's Park, by an Or- der of the Board of Green Cloth, when the Officer beat the Bailiff very severely, and then made his Escape ; but Yesterday the said Of- ficer was retaken near Charing- Cross, by the Bailiff and his Followers. The Gentleman was supposed to have forgot General Ganfell's Affair, and how dangerous it is for the Mili- tary to interfere with the Civil Power. Yesterday was tried, in the Sheriff's Court at Guildhall, a Cause wherein Mrs. Southan was Plaintiff, and Mr. Benden, a Cheese- factor, at Pool, in Dorsetshire, Defendant : The Action was brought for Non- performance of a Mar- riage Contract. After several very learned Ar- guments on both Sides, the Jury withdrew for about ten Minutes, and then gave a Verdict for Five Hundred Pounds Damages, and all Costs of Suit, against the Defendant. There is scarcely a Session at the Old Bailey but what there are Errors found in Indictments, to the very great Delay and Perversion of Jus- tice. In the Indictment of Conoway and Ri- chardson, for the Murder of Messrs. Venables and Rogers, last Session, there was not only a nominative Case wanted, to ascertain the De- ceased, but several other scandalous Defects in regard to spelling. — Quere, As these Things are often practiced by Design, whether a Punish- ment proportioned to the Crime, should not be lodged in the Hands of the Court ? Upon reading some Letters of his Grace the D of — , a peevish old Gentleman exclaimed, This is a fad Thing indeed ! AD - not to have learned to read and write ! His Friend very good- naturedly observed, that it could not be said of his Grace as it was of a Man who was hanged for Forgery, that he never would have come to that untimely End. if he had not learned to write and read.

AMONGST the various Instances already pub- lished of the good Effects of ROWLEY'S HERB SNUFF and TOBACCO, the following may not be unworthy the public Attention. The Son of Mr. CROSS, Apothecary in Prim- rose- Street, near Bishopsgate- Street, London, ( by whose Authority this Account is published) being a young Gentleman of eighteen Years of Age, was growing blind about four Years, and at Length became totally dark ; all that his Father could either do or procure to be done for him, served only to regain a glimmering of Light ; but with- out Distinction of Objects, even of the greatest Magnitude ; in which State he remained upwards of seven Years. By taking ROWLEY'S HERB SNUFF, he soon began to fee, and to distinguish Colours ; in a few Months more he dismissed his Guide, and can now see distinctly all the Keys of his Harpsichord ; and even the several Characters in the Alphabet, though with some Difficulty. Mr. Cross, from a Principle of' Philanthropy thinks that the Benefit his Son has already received is too considerable to be longer withheld from the Public. This Snuff and Tobacco are fold at St. Paul's Coffee- House, London ; and by S. Gamidge, Bookseller, in Worcester. But be careful to ask for ROWLEY'S, and observe that it is signed James Rowley, as any other sold in that City, under Rowley's Name, is not gennuine, but an Imposition on the Public.

Price One Shilling a Bottle. This Day arrived a Mail from Holland. Otranto, June 24. THEY write from the Morea, that the Russian Squadron, consisting of eleven Ships, commanded by Com- modore Elphinston, arrived in the Gulph of Pagania, near Mysitra; and that after having been reinforced by several more Russian Ships of War, had put to Sea, attacked and beat the Ottoman Fleet under Giasser Bey, and sunk three of this Ships. Leghorn, July 7. The French Polacre Sans Pareille, Capt . Martin, is arrived in this Port from Gavata and Metelin. He reports, that on the 7 th of last Month he left Syra, one of the Islands of the Archipelago ; that at a little Dis- tance from thence he met the Turkish Fleet, commanded by Giaffer Bey, consisting of 23 Sail, including Frigates and Xebecs, steering their Course towards Stanchio ; that in the Af- ternoon he discovered at a Distance 13 Russian Men of War, steering the same Course; that the 9th, fell in near Cerigo with two other Rus- sian 60 Gun Ships, a Frigate, a Bomb- ketch, and another Ship ; that being ordered by the Russian Commandant to bring to, he told him what he had seen on his Passage ; that the Com- mandant then informed him, that a few Days before there had been a sharp Engagement in the Gulph of Napoli di Romanio, between three Ships of his Nation, and seven of the Ot- tomans, in which the latter had been so shat- tered that they were obliged to put into a Port in that Place, having lost most of their Masts. The French Captain adds, that before that En- gagement, there had been another at Navarino, the Russians having sprung a Mine, by which several Thousands of Turks lost their Lives. Hague, July 2 . There are Letters here which assure, that the Russians are actually bom- barding Bender. paris, July 20. The Reports lately propa- gated here concerning the Execution at Lisbon, have been contradicted by the Portugese Am bassador ; but it is a Fact, that a Line of Troops has been formed on the Frontiers of that Kingdom, who examine all that go out or come in ; that several Ecclesiasticks, and among others many Rectors of Parishes have been ar- rested, and that a Body of Forces surround the Convent of Bernardines situated at Mini. AMERICA. Newport, Rhode- lsland, June 4. Last Week the Merchants and Traders of this Town had two Meetings, at which they concluded to re- new their former Agreement of Non- Importa- tion, and appointed a Committee of Inspection, who waited on all those who had received any Goods contrary to the said Agreement, and re- ceived all such Goods under their Care, as were then on Hand, which they put into Chests, Trunks, & c. and secured them properly; which Goods the Committee are determined to visit at least once every Week, till the Duty on Tea is repealed, and expose every person who shall be so safe as to offer to open any of the Pack- ages ; and to render it impossible for the Owners of the said Goods to commit any Fraud with- out being discovered, the Committee took an exact Invoice of each Person's Goods. COUNTRY NEWS. Bury, July 20. John Biggins and Edward Panfloe, two Mountebanks indicted at Easter Sessions for a common Nuisance in causing Stages to be erected in several Parts of this County, and divers Interludes to be acted thereon for Gain and Reward, felling and re- tailing Medicines without due Licence, and disposing of Plate by Way of Gaming, occa- sioning thereby unlawful Assemblies weekly, and an usual Concourse of hired Servants and Day- Labourers, tending to the Hindrance of their Masters Business, the Neglect of their own proper Employments, the Hurt of their poor Families, and the Annoyance of the Pub- lic, were convicted of the said Offences, fined One Shilling each, and ordered to be impri- soned two Months in Ipswich Gaol, where they had been confined six Weeks for Want of Su- reties, having been apprehended by Virtue of a Bench Warrant. Samuel Lambert and Jona- than Matthews, two other Mountebanks in- dicted at Easter Sessions last, are not yet taken. LONDON, Saturday, July 28. It is now said, that the entire Abolition of the B d and G n Party in the Cabinet, and the Dissolution of the present P , were the fine qua non Preliminaries of the Earl of Northington's Proposals to the K— for the public Good. There is one Circumstance which reflects no little Honour on the Earl of Northington, in his late Negociation with the Administration ; and that is, his Lordship failed of Success, not as some others had done before him, for asking too much for himself ( for he asked nothing at all) but for asking too much for his Country— the greatest Crime a Man can be guilty of in the present ministerial Situation of Affairs. We hear that the Fees of the Auditor of the Exchequer will amount, on the Examination of some certain Accounts, to near Half a Million of Money. We hear, on very good Authority, that a cer- tain voluntary Exile, is determined to spend the Remainder of his Days in foreign Parts. It is said that Lord Bute has given Orders to have most of his valuable and curious Effects sent to him ; and amongst the left, his expen- sive and uncommon Collection of Fossils. Guildhall on Thursday last, a great Variety of Business was transacted. The Orphan Bill was twice read, and the London Workhouse Bill passed After the King's Answer to the late Address of the City to his Majesty on the Birth of a Princess had been read, it was moved that the Answer should be entered in the City Books, on which Mr. Alderman Wilkes said, " That if the entering the King's Answer among the City Records meant any thing more than the bare recording that historical Fact, that on such a Day his Majesty gave such an Answer to the. City's Address, it implied the slightest Degree of Approbation, he would oppose the Motion, for he thought the Answer contained a cruel and unjust Suspicion of the Loyalty of the City of London, that it was exceedingly ill timed and uncourtly to affront the Citizens at thé In- stant of their coming in the Warmth of their Hearts to congratulate their Sovereign on the Increase of the Royal Family, but that how- ever he should never ascribe so obnoxious a Measure to the King, but to those Ministers who fought our Ruin, who had planned the Scheme fo r the shedding of innocent Blood in St. George's Fields, and from the first Moment of their Power had constantly and fabulously endeavoured to create Difference between the King and his People, and particularly the loyal Inhabitants of this great Capital, to serve their own, private, abandoned, and wicked Pur- poses." The Answer of his Majesty was en- tered with only the Date of the Year and Date of the Month. The two following Motions passed in the Court of Common Council : " That the Conduct of the Recorder of this City be taken into Consideration at the next Court of Common Council, and that the Lord Mayor be desired to order Notice of it to be in- serted in the Summonses. " That the Oaths taken by the Recorder on his Admission into Office be forthwith printed and sent to every Member of this Court." On Wednesday John Wilkes, Esq; Alder- man of Farringdon Ward Without, was chosen Master of the Joiners Company, for the Year ensuing. He was afterwards elegantly enter- tainen by the Court of Assistants, at their Hall in Thames Street. Perhaps no Person living has been so honoured and disgraced, in a very few Years, as John Wilkes, Esq;— prosecuted, wounded, expelled, outlawed, Outlawry reversed, imprisoned, re- peatedly chosen Member for the first County, rejected, chosen Alderman of London, and at length Master of one of the largest Companies in that City. We are assured that a certain Alderman has repeatedly applied for a Peerage, but been peremptorily refused by a great Personage. The Trial between the Rev. Mr. Horne and George Onflow, Esq; Member for Surry, and one of the Lords of the Treasury, will come on before Lord Mansfield, at Guildford, on Wed- nesday next, at Eight in the Morning. On Tuesday his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales appeared at St. James's in a Suit of Scarlet, richly trimmed with Gold, and But- tons of exquisite Workmanship, the Manufac- ture of his Majesty. It is certain that a Bill will be brought next Session into Parliament, to restrain the Number of Places of public Entertainment, as the only Means to prevent the present Increase of Dis- sipation among all Ranks of People. An Officer, who was to have been tried for Contempt of Orders, has obtained Leave to resign. We hear that a Great Personage has inti- mated to his Brother, that he must either to- tally restrain from his Visits to a certain Lady, or his Visits at C — t. It is said that a certain amiable great Lady, whose usual Custom it is to present to all her Female Attendants a small Collection of Books of a particular Kind, on finding what Part a certain young Lady had taken in a late noto- rious Transaction, as a genteel Reproof, sent the other Day Duplicates of some of the Books, which she had before presented to her, at the same Time causing her to be informed, that she was apprehensive the young Lady had either never received her former Present, or had not made th e proper Use of it. The Pension of Dr. Charles was granted to him, in Trust for Count Viri, the Sardinian Ambassador, who assisted Lord Bute to procure a Peace for the victorious English, and not for the Education of the Duke of C d. We hear that the Machine invented by Mr. James Story, of North Shields, has been care- fully examined by several of the most distin- guished Mathematicians and Mechanics, who concur in Opinion that the so long and much looked- for perpetual Motion is found by that ingenious Artist, who undoubtedly will be well rewarded. A Correspondent has sent us an Account of a very curious Machine, which he saw at Al- tona, made by a poor Collar- maker, being an Alarum Clock, the Wheels, and all the Inside of which were wrought out of Horses Hoofs. When set for the Alarum, it rung full a Minute ; then a folding Door under the Clock opened, and a little Figure of a Negro Boy came out with a Pistol in one Hand, which was also a Tinder Box, and so contrived, that being pre- viously primed with Powder it went off with a prodigious Vent, and at the same Time threw a Spark into the Tinder. In the other Hand, this Figure held a small Wax Candle, in a Candlestick, in which were placed three or four Matches. from the Army on the Side of the Pruth, over - against Rabaja Mohilu, June 25. " We arrived here on the 23d with the whole Army. For almost a Fortnight past, the Enemy occupies a Position within Half a Mile of our Camp. They had entrenched themselves in theirs, and made many Attempts to force their Way towards Moldavia; but Lieutenant Gen. Prince Repnin repulsed them every Time, un- til the Count de Romanzow, our General in Chief, gave Orders on the 21st, to our Van Guard to go and attack them. That Body con- sisted of about 20 or 30,000 Men, Turks and Tartars, commanded by Abassa Pacha and the Khan of Crimea personally. As soon as they perceived, our Troops filing off, they raised their Camp, and marched, in Number 20,000, against our Van Guard; but feeing M. Bawr, Quarter- Master General, advancing very fast upon them, they retired with Precipitation un- der Favour of the Night, and slopped within 15 Wersts of our Camp, on the Heights that extend on the Side of Bender and Falza. On this Occasion we took from them all their Pon- tons, and two Mortars of fifty Pounds Ball. The Volunteers of our Light Troops pursued them, and cut to Pieces some of the Runaways, and took several Prisoners. We are now going to surround the Enemy, and. if they stand their Ground, we shall soon have some impor- tant News to send you. General Panin is within six Miles of Bender." Letters just arrived from Canterbury men- tion, that the Captain of a Dutch Ship in the Downs, fell in with an English Vessel about three Weeks since, bound from St. Kitt's for Cork, who informed him that several Shocks of an Earthquake had been felt in that Island, and had entirely ruined the French Fortifications at Martinico. On Wednesday last a Court- Martial was held at the Horse- Guards, relative, as it is said, to some Points of Discipline that have been in- sisted upon by superior Officers, and refused by those of inferior Rank : The inferior Officers, we are told, are backed by Persons of great Experience in military Affairs, and those who have taken upon them to bring on the Trial, by those only of the same Rank with them- selves. How this will terminate cannot yet be known. A Coinage of Halfpence is ordered to be carried on at the Mint in the Tower, and will begin as soon as possible. BURFORD RACES ( Oxfordshire) continued.

Before Starting Milksop was backed Six to Four against the Field ; after the second Heat, the Odds were Two to One Jugurtha against the Field; after the third Heat the Odds were resumed, Three to One upon Milk sop: And such were the Vicissitudes of the Day, that at length many had hedged their Bets till they were certain of being great Losers which soever Horse proved victorious ; and so fatal was the Catastrophe, that the Downs were al- most deserted the Day following.

FOR the Convenience of Persons residing in the Country, who may be de- sirous of adventuring in the present State Lottery, ( which is much more advantageous than any former Lottery) Tickets and Shares of Tickets, will, as usual, be procured for them, from the capital Offices in London, on the shortest Notice, and on the most reasonable Terms, By H. Berrow, Printer of this Journal. The strictest Secrecy will be observed, and all Letters ( if Post paid) duly answered ; but no Orders can be regarded, unless the full Money be paid at the same Time. N. B. In the present Lottery there are Ten Thousand Tickets less than in any former one for many Years last past; so that it is pretty cer- tain there will be a considerable Advance in the Price of Tickets and Shares of Tickets before the Drawing begins. THURSDAY's POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) Arrived the Mail from Holland. Constantinople, June 16. THE 2d of this Month, the Porte received an Express from Georgia with the News that the Pacha Piri Zade Mehemet had gained a great victory over the People of that Province, and the Russians; and had taken the Fortress of Agiska. There is no Mention made of Prince Heraclius; but it is said, that Solomen Bey lost a great Number of Men in the Action. They add, that Piri- Zade, con- vinced of the Treachery of his Kiahaja, or Lieutenant, and his Gafnedar, or Treasurer, had put them to Death. The same Day the Porte received also a Courier from Moegzoen- Zade, Pacha of the Morea, by which we learn, that Coron, Modon, and Navarino, have been re- taken from the Russians, after an obstinate Battle, in which the Russians lost two Colonels, whom the Turks call Bin- Baschi, or Cheif of one thousand Men, one of whom died of his Wounds, and the other is brought hither. The Grand Signior did not order the Cannon to be fired on this Occassion, the Porte having been several Times imposed upon last Year by agreeable News of this Kind, which afterwards proved false, and therefore his Highness is re- solved there shall be no more public Rejoicings. From the Danube, July 8. ' Tis assured there has been a bloody Battle in Moldavia, on the 24th of June last, between the Turks and Ru- ssians, to the Disadvantage of the former, who have lost forty thousand Men. We expect a Confirmation of this News. Naples, June 30. We hear from Sicily that most of the Inhabitants of Messina, encamp in the open Fields, having left their Habitations on Account of the violent Shocks of Earth- quake, of which 30 in the Space of a Month, had thrown down Abundance of Palaces and Houses, under the Ruins of which a great Number of People had been crushed to Death. That terrible Phenomenon was also felt at Reggio, twelve Miles from Messina, where a great Number of Persons have been buried under the Ruins of their Houses. LONDON, Tuesday, July 31. A Bill is talked of to be brought in next Session, that all future Parliaments may be Triennial; and we hear that a strong Push will be made to bring it to pass. We are assured that a certain great Lawyer is in so declining a State of Health, that it is not thought he can survive it. Among other Di- seases, the Scurvy, so natural to most of his Countrymen, preys upon him to such a Degree, that his Nails and Fingers Ends are almost en- tirely eaten away. 29th of July, to a Merchant in London. " Before this comes to Hand, you will pro- bly have heard of the late dreadful Fire that happended in this Port; however I have sent you the best Account I am able of this fatal Accident. The Fire broke out at Half past Four, on Friday Morning, in his Majesty's Dock Yard, which communicated to the Store House, where the Pitch, Tar, Hemp, Cables, Sails, and Rigging for the Men of War are kept ; it raged with great Violence till Half past Seven, when it reached the Mast Houses, in which were Masts and Yards for near twenty Sail of capital Men of War, which were soon reduced to Ashes, together with the Joiners Shops, Spinning Houses, Pitch House, & c. & c. and all the Timber which lay near the said Buildings. Such a Conflagration rarely never was beheld. The Rigging House was with the greatest Difficulty saved, as were also the Houses of the Surgeon and Boatswain in of the Yard. The Town itself seemed to be in imminent Danger, by the Wind shifting about, which threw the inhabitants into the greatest Confusion, but by the Assistance of the Marines, & c. the Violence of the Flames was stopped about Seven in the Evening, and the Town thereby preserved. " How this Fire began is a Matter of Sur- prise to every one; it was said, by a Pitch Kettle boiling over, but upon Enquiry it was found that there had been none used for a Day or two. The general Opinion is, that it was wilfully set on Fire by some of our foreign Ene- mies, a Number of whom have resorted to this Part lately. — It is said many Lives are lost, though this has not been confirmed ; but it is certain many had their Limbs broke. The Da- mage done is computed at upwards of Half a Million Sterling. The Fire ten Years ago was nothing to this." Extract of another Letter from Portsmouth, dated the 29th of July. " I imagine you have already heard of the melancholy News of his Majesty's Dock Yard being wilfully set on Fire by some incendiary Villains, who took the Opportunity to execute their wicked Design whilst the People were at Port Down Fair, as there were several Car- tridges of Powder found at the End of the long Store House, now in Flames. The Com- bustible Matter must have been laid in the Evening, as the Smoke was perceived by seve- ral at a great Distance from Portchester, and as far as the Motherbank. The Men on board the C'ustom House Cutter, saw a great Smoke ( through a Spy Glass) in four different Places in the Dock Yard, about Three o'Clock in the Morning; they took it to be a Ship, breaming; it was not discovered near us till about Five o'Clock, which was by the Centinel near the Place, who perceived it to burst out vehe- mently through the Roof. The Damage, ac- cording to a near Estimation, is about 160 Ca- bles of different Sorts; all the Boatswains and Carpenters Stores of Ships in good Condition ; also 300Tons of Hemp, and the like Number of Barrels of Tar, Pitch, and Turpentine ; Slop and Marine Cloathing missing or lost ; the Laying and Spinning Houses, long Store- House, Block- House, Carpenters Shop, Gla- ziers, Braziers, and Plumbers Shops, the large Mast- House near the Academy, with the capi- tal Masts said therein, with about Half of the Sails in the Store- Houses, are entirely con- fumed. A Servant Maid in the- Dock- Yard, who was looking out of a GarretWindow about Four o'Clock, was perceived by some Persons, who accosted her, with saying, " You had better go to Bed than rife, for soon you will have a fine Light to get up by," and then went off, saying to themselves, " It is almost Time to give an Alarm." Our good Friends now may rejoice, as they have succeeded in this. And I now believe ( as well as others) that it was set on Fire ten Years ago, this Month, in like Manner, though the Conflagration then not half so large as now. It is a dismal Sight to behold! and more so, as the Common ( a po- pulous Suburb near Portsmouth) was near meeting with the same Fate. If that had hap- pened, the next would have been the Gun- Wharf, and then the Garrison ( which is not well garrisoned, though it is the Key of our Isle) the strongest in the Kingdom. God send the Perpetrators may meet the Reward they justly deserve for so diabolical an Action. " This Morning the Duke of Cumberland arrived here, and immediately went to the Dock Yard, to view the dreadful Havock the late Fire has made." Yesterday Morning an Express was sent off from the Admiralty Office, to the Commissioner of Portsmouth Dock, for an exact Estimate of the Loss sustained by the late Fire, to be trans- mitted to the Board, with Orders in the mean Time to take into Pay an extraordinary Number of Sail- Makers, Riggers, Rope- Makers, & c. for the more speedy and effectual Repair of the aforesaid Damages. And Orders are given for several Mast Ships to be taken into the Government's Service, for the Importation of Masts, Spars, and Ship Timber, from Onega and Piscataqua. Orders were dispatched on Saturday Night last to Plymouth, Chatham, and Sheerness, for the ordinary Guard of Marines to be doubled in the several Dock- Yards. The Ministers, by themselves and their Emissaries, have assured all their Friends, that the late Fire at Portsmouth was occasioned by Accident. A C 1 is summoned to take into Consi- deration the above unfortunate Event. have been held on American Affairs. Many Members were of Opinion, that his Majesty, with the Advice of his Privy Council, was suf- ficiently empowered to suppress the Tumults in America in what Manner he thought proper; but a cautious Member of the Law, observed, that in the present Situation of Affairs they could not act too prudently, and therefore it was safer to leave the Manner of quelling them to the Parliament, as by that Means it would be the Action of the whole Nation, which Opinion, we hear, was adopted. It is certain some vigorous Measures have been resolved upon to bring the Bostonians to Reason, and that Commodore Gambier has Orders to carry a naval Force before Boston, to try what Effect their Appearance will pro- duce before the next Meeting of Parliament, which will certainly sit some Time in Novem- ber for the Dispatch of Business. The Trade from America to Portugal, Spain, and up the Streights, grows inconcievably im- mense; insomuch, that it may be safely affirmed, that for one Ship to England, twenty go to those Parts, with Wheat, Corn, salted Pork, and Staves: Which Vessels, in Return, bring Wines, together with all the Delicacies of Italy. There are many sensible Americans, who affirm, that if America is indulged in Trade, in the same Latitude she now enjoys it, without being subject to Taxations, for the Use of the British Empire in general, the People at Home are the Slaves of America, and the Americans the only Freemen in the World." Within these few Weeks a Number of British Artificers, who had left the Kingdom last Year, in Hopes of Employment at Boston, New- York, and Philadelphia, have returned Home, and given a deplorable Account of the lnfant State of Manufactures on the American Con- tinent. It is certain, the French are continually sending Supplies to all their foreign Settle- ments: What other Motive can they have for this than the Apprehensions of an immediate Rupture ? Two experienced Crown Engineers will, it is said, speedily be appointed to go over to Dunkirk, and inspect into the present State of the Harbour and Fortifications there, which the French are said to be repairing. The Charming Sally, lately arrived from Rhode Island, brings an Account that she was slopt about three Degrees to the Leeward of St. Christopher's, by a Vessel under Dutch Co- lours ; and detained for several Hours under the Pretence of knowing whether there was a War between the Eaglish and Spaniards. On Saturday last the Oath taken by the Re- corder, on his Admission into that Office, ( printed from the old Records) was sent to every Member of the Court of Common Coun- cil, in which is the following Passage: " Ready ye shall be to come at the Warning of the Major and Sheriffs, or their Mynisters, for good and wise Counsell to give, and to ride and goe with them at all Tymes when Neede shall be, to mayntayne the State of this Citty." A certain City Officer, we find, is far from being dismayed at the approaching formal Scrutiny of his Conduct; and, it is said, he is preparing a very long and elaborate Memorial, to prove that his Behaviour is rather to be applauded than impeached. The Lords Commissioners of his Majesty's Treasury have appointed William Cooke, Esq; to receive, at the Treasury, such Returns of the Prices of Corn, and of the Quantities exported and imported, as are directed by the Act of Parliament passed last Sessions. His Majesty having signified to the Inhabi- tants of Berkeley- Square, by the Duke of An- caster, his Intention of presenting them with his own Statue, to be put in the Middle of that Square ; his Royal Highness the Duke of Cum- berland, ever willing to follow the most laudable Examples, intends presenting the Inhabitants of Grosvenor- Square with a Statue of himself, to be erected in the Opening, among the Under- wood, near the Centre of that Square. We hear from Marseilles, that the French have, by their Vigilance, entirely destroyed all the small Parties that bore Arms against them in the Island of Corsica, which they affected to call Banditti, and consequently extinguished the last Sparks of Liberty that existed among these unfortunate People, Advice is said to be received, that an Earth- quake had dene more Damage to the public Works in the Island of Cuba, than the Spa- niards can repair in five Years. A slight Shock of an Earthquake was also felt at Kingston in Jamaica ; it continued at least a Minute, causing to many People a Swimming in the Head, and Sickness. There are at this Time no less than four hundred Men ( which Number with theirWives and Children make near eight hundred) con- fined in the King's Bench Prison. We are assured that the Flint Baronet lives in a Manner suitable to his Rank in his present Confinement, being supported by a Lady of considerable Fortune, who lately fell in Love with him, and who would have married him, had he been single. Yesterday Morning, as Mr. Morant, of the Grange- Walk, Southwark, was working in his Garden, in which were several Bee- Hives, on his too near Approach to them, the whole Swarm issued out upon him, and stung him to Death. Last Friday Richard Unwin, a Shepherd, at Iver, near Uxbridge, sold his Wife to a Farmer at Cowley, for Twenty Pounds. The Woman, it seems, had lived with the Farmer a Year, prevail with her to return home, he resolved to come to an Ecclaircissement with the Farmer, and they settled Matters in the above amicable Manner. Unwin, after receiving' the Money, generously gave the Ringers a Crown to ring a merry Peal on the Occasion. Price of CORN per Quarter, at London. Pease 24s. to 26s. Hog Pease 2os. to 22 s.

WORCESTER, Thursday, Aug. 2. On Tuesday last the Mayor and Corporation of this City dined with the Right Hon. the Earl of Coventry, at his Lordship's Seat at Croome, and were entertained in a very elegant, Manner. —" The great Affability, and obliging Behaviour of his Lordship and Lady to the Com- pany, was such as does Honour to Nobility, On Sunday last was married, at the Parish Church of St. Helen, in this City, Henry Fortick Sheridan, Esq; of the Sixty- first Regi- ment of Foot, to Miss Ferguffone, Daughter of John Ferguffone, Esq; deceased, late a Cap- tain in his Majesty's Navy. On Friday last died, at the Commandry in this City, Mrs. Dandridge, Wife of John Dan- dridge, Esq; and one of the Daughters of the Right Hon. Sir John Strange. The many amiable Qualities she possessed endeared her to her Relations and Acquaintance, and make her Death most truly regretted by them all. At our Races, which will be on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday next, it is expected there will be a very numerous Appearance of Persons of Distinction ; and there is also the greatest Likelihood of exceeding good Sport each Day. On Tuesday last Mr Barnes's Bay Horse, Spark, enter'd for the first Day ; and a Horse, call'd Sling, belonging to Sir Francis Chartres, likewise appear'd at the Place of Entrance, but the stated Time of entering being elapsed, he could not be admitted, and therefore will en- ter at the Post. Mr. Fettiplace's Horse, Ranthos ( now at Hereford Races) is another that will certainly enter at the Post the first Day ; as also a Horse belonging to Mr. Hanbury, of Pont y Pool. Yesterday the four following enter'd for the Hunters' Purse, viz. Sir Walter Compton's Grey Geld Liberty. Mr. Head's Bay Mare, Lilly of the Vale. Mr. Hare's Bay Gelding, Chacer. Mr. Freeman's Chesnut Gelding, Trentham. This Afternoon the Horses for the Maiden Purse, the last Day, will enter at the Star and Garter, in Foregate Street; for which, we are assured, four or five will start; two of them are already in Town, and the Rest will arrive in a Day or two from Hereford and Stratford Races. To prevent Accidents happening to the Horses in their Exercise or at the Time of Run- ning, it is earnestly desired that all Persons will keep their Dogs confined ; and, as the sheep are likewise a great Interruption, it is hoped the Owners will be so considerate as to cause them to be removed. The next Meeting of the Deputy- Lieutenants and Justices for the Upper and Lower Divisions of Halfshire Hundred, will be at the Golden Cross Inn, in Bromsgrove, on Monday the 20th Instant. THEATRICAL INTELLIGENCE. We hear that Messrs. Durravan propose to open the Theatre in this City for a Short Time. The Public may be assured that the Company will do their utmost Endeavours to merit their Favour; and as many of the new Pieces as have taken a Run in the Theatres in London ( as can in the Time) will be presented, with every necessary Decoration, they humbly hope for the Indulgence of the Public on this Occasion. They will begin performing some Day next Week. The Assize of Bread is as follows, viz.

Tea, they are greedy Dogs which can never have enough, and they are Shepherds that cannot understand: They all look to their own Way, every one for his Gain, from his Quarter. SIR, IPresume it is allowable, upon some Ocsa- sions, to use the sacred Writ upon political Occurrences. Through such Persuasion I ven- ture upon the above Text, believing it suitable to the subsequent Comment. Our lately happy and envied Kingdom, raised to the very Pinacle of Glory by Arms, stretched upon the very Summit of Reputation for Commerce, extolled for Arts, renowned for the perfect Knowledge of the Sciences, feared and respected by every neighbouring Potentate ; we were indebted for the Splendor and Bril- liancy of our Nation, before the Conclusion of the adequate Peace at Fontainbleau, to the able Administration of the Earl of Chatham; since which Period, we have had neither able nor upright Ministers ( except the short Interval of the Marquis of Rockingham's). His Succes- sors have been constantly and miserably devia- ting from the watchful Duty they owe the So- vereign and the Subject Instead of reducing the national Debt by economical Rules, and from thence easing the Subject of Part of the grievous Tax, they suffer that enormous, in- supportable Load of Debt to remain, without Dimination, upon the tottering Shoulders of the Nation ; whilst the Minister fills his own Pocket, and laudably applies the public Trea- sure to influence Elections, to pay useless and shameful Pensions, to discharge Bagnio Scores, to support Murderers, and to pay a Troop of Informers and Messengers, to carry on Law Suits against harmless and innocent Printers and Booksellers, to the Ruin of their Families. Add to these, the Augmentation of the Salary of a sinecure Place, the Justice in Eyre, and to damp and sap the Petitions and Remonstrances. All these obvious Grievances, joined to the judicious Line of Separation between us and our Brethren, the Colonists, give us such a pictu- resque View of what we are, to what we were ; at which every honest Man must weep, and curse the Wretches who have wrought the Evil. ACCURATUS. To the PRINTER. SIR, AS this Letter is chiefly addressed to Wo- men of confined Educations and narrow Minds, whose Knowledge is seldom more ex- tensive than a Ballad or a News- Paper, I re- quire most seriously to know, however they dislike the Appellation of Old Maid, the Rea- son why so many very sensible and agreeable Women become such. In my Opinion, and in the Opinion of many most learned in the Fair Sex, it proceeds from no other Reason, than a prudish over- serupulousNicety in not hav- ing sufficient Courage to address the Object of their Choice, who, if they had known them- selves to be such, had probably made them the happiest of Women; for that Man must be more than Brute, who could refuse a Woman that loved him. For my Part, I see no Reason why a Woman should not have the Liberty of choosing for herself, without the least Impeach- ment either of her Understanding or Delicacy, was the to write her Mind on the Occasion. Would the good Fathers and prudent Mothers of this Age allow their Girls the Liberty of choosing for themselves, such frequent Divorces could never happen, as it would be the surest Preventative against them; and instead of wrea- thing your ugly and pretty Faces into a thou- sand Grimaces, or tittering like Fools, I would rather advice them to set about cultivating their Minds, and not give themselves any Concern about what the World will say here, but what it will say to you hereafter, if you make a good Choice, and conduct yourselves wisely as Wives and Christians. I am, SIR, Your humble Servant, CLEANTHES. From the LONDON EVENING POST. HIS Majesty in his consummate Wisdom, has lately been pleased to give a Plate of One Hundred Pounds to be run for at Chelms- ford Races, in the County of Essex, and to be called The Queen's Plate, It requires not extra- ordinary Illumination of the Understanding to see through the Nature and Intention of this Bounty. The same Influence which someTime since procured the miserable Address which was presented under the Name of that County, has, doubtless, been employed to gain this Mark of the Royal Favour. But as that Address was held in the utmost Contempt by the sensible Part of the Inhabi- tants, so also is the Reward, which it has ob- tained, they considering it as a ministerial Bribe to gull the Calfish Part of the County, and to make them still continue the servile Dupes of those miserable Hirelings, who, with an Ignorance equalled by nothing but their Ef- frontry, are rapaciously plundering the Bowels of their Country, and striving to compleat its Destruction.

For the STONE and GRAVEL. SWINFEN's ELECTUARY, A Medicine proved, from a long Series in private Practice, to be of the greatest Efficacy in giving imme- diately Ease in the most excruciating Fits of the Stone and Gravel, and curing those painful and melancholy Disorders. It is pleasant to take, having no pauseous or disagreeable Taste ; fits easy on the Stomach, and is so late and inoffensive in its Operation, that it is taken without any particular Regimen or Confinement. Amongst the great Number of extraordinary CURES done by this ELECTUARY , the following Cases are sub- mitted to the Public : JOHN BOWN, of Kirkby- Malory, in the County of Leicester, was violently afflicted with the Gravel and Stone ten Weeks, and had the Advice of an eminent Apothecary, without receiving any Ease. On the 3d of December last he began taking Swinfen's ELECTUARY, and after taking three Doses, he found himself much easier ; and, by the Time he had taken one Pot, more than a large Coffee- cup full of Gravel and small Stones came from him. He was perfectly cured, continues free from Pain, and has had no Return of the Disorder since. JOHN COOPER, jun. of Hinckley, Peruke- maker, was afflicted with the Gravel and Stone from two Years of Age, and suffered the most excruciating Pains and An- guish with it for sixteen Years, during which Time he had the repeated Advice of the most eminent of the Fa- culty, who gave him not the least Relief. On the 11th of October last he began with Swinsen's ELECTUARY, and, by taking one Pot, his Pains entirely ceased, and has remained perfectly free from the Complaint ever since, Witness my Hand, JOHN COOPER.
