THURSDAY, November 22, 1770. No. 3199. Notwithstanding this Journal is, in most Places, distributed at lead 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 inferred in other Country Papers before the Saturday following. SATURDAY'S POST LONDON, Thursday, Nov. 15. YESTERDAY the Right Ho- nourable the House of Peers, preceded, by Lord Mansfield their Speaker, waited on his Majesty at St. James's with their Address of Thanks, for his most gracious Speech from the Throne, and received the following most gracious Answer : " My Lords, " IT gives me great Satisfaction to find, that you - entertain so just a Sense of the Impor- tance of Peace, while that desirable Object can be maintained consistently with the Honour of my. Crown and the Rights of my People. You may depend upon my best Endeavours to preserve that inestimable Blessing, so long as it is compatible with Objects still more essential to the Happiness and Prosperity of my King- doms. " The affectionate Part you take in the happy Delivery of the Queen, and the Increase of my Family, gives me much Pleasure." " At a Court of Common Conncil held this Day at Guildhall, it was resolved, That the Sum of Forty Shillings for every able Seaman, and Twenty Shillings for every ordinary Sea- man, over and above the Bounty granted by his Majesty, be given during the Pleasure of the Court, and not exceeding one Month from this Day, to every such Seaman that shall enter the Guildhall of this City into the Service of his Majesty's Navy. It was also resolved, and ordered, That the Remembrancer do im- mediately wait on the Right Hon. Sir Edward Hawke First Lord Commissioner of the Ad miralty, with a Copy of the Resolution fairly transcribed and signed by the Town Clerk, and signify the Request of this Court, that his Lordship will at a proper Opportunity lay the same before his Majesty, as an humble Testi- mony of their Zeal and Affection for his most sacred Person and Government. A Motion was afterwards made, that an humble Address, Remonstrance, and Petition, be presented to his Majesty by this Court, touching the violated Right of Election, and praying Dissolution of the present Parliament, which was declared to be carried in the Affir- mative. A Division being demanded, there appeared seven Aldermen and seventy- three Commoners for the Question ; and eight Al- dermen and forty Commoners against it. A Committee was then appointed, consisting of six Aldermen and twelve Commoners, to prepare the said Address, Remonstrance, and Petition, who were ordered to withdraw imme- diately for that Purpose ; and returning there- with, it was read and approved, ordered to be fairly transcribed, and signed by the Town Clerk, and presented to his Majesty by the whole Court. It is now said, that Lord Commissioner Bathurst will be Chancellor, Mr. De Grey ha- ving declined the Seals, upon the Terms offered him by the Ministry. The Terms demanded by a Crown Lawyer, to whom the Seals were offered, it is said, were a Pension, in case of Removal, and a Peerage upon coming into Office ; these being denied by the Minister, the Lawyer observed, that if he was worthy to succeed the late C r upon the Bench, he was worthy to be treated with equal Consideration ; and therefore either did not deserve the Seals, or did deserve the Distinctions conferred on his Predecessors. To this the Minister replied, " I have an equal Opinion, Sir, of your Probity and your Judge- ment, and respect you no less as a Lawyer than a Man; but, Sir, had I possessed my present Situation when the S— ls were last disposed of, I would not have prostituted the Dignity of the C p so far as to birbe the Acceptor into a Condescension of stooping to the first Em- ployment an English Subject can arrive at; an Employment in which he is to be invested with a Kind of temporary Omnipotence, and to have the Glory of not only serving his Sovereign, but of conferring an essential Obligation on his Country. When I came into Power myself, Sir, critical as the Times were, I made no Bargains; I stipulated for no Emoluments in the Hour of Dismission, nor conditioned for a Title when I was to be removed ; I thought a Conduct of this Nature would be as disrepu- table to myself, as it would be injurious to the Public. I am therefore determined, while I retain my Master's Confidence, to rescue the great Departments of the State from Contempt, and to make the Offer of any one Office, a Circumstance of the highest Favour, instead of paying any Individual for his Goodness in deign- ing to fill it up." The Judges, it has been said, had their Sala- ries increased, and their Offices made perpetual, in order to render them independent. But it may be questioned, perhaps, how far this Inde- pendency is real, when one of them has been known lately to possess a Salary of 5000l. a Year, as Speaker to the House of Lords. Three more are Commissioners of the Great Seal, with large Appointments; and the rest are kept con- stantly looking up to Government for Prefer- ment, and a Share of those Emoluments. It may be depended on that L d M d has been of late very vehement in the C — l for Peace; but that the Majority of the Mem- bers were against him. His Majesty has commanded Orders to be transmitted to all the Governors of Forts, both in and out of Great Britain, to send an Ac- count of their Strength, and lose no Time in making Application for such Supplies of Men and Ammunition, as are necessary for the greater Security of those Places from the De- predations of any Enemy. It has been urged to Administration, that the Junction of the Bourbonian Isles in the West- Indies, to the British Crown, would be one of the most capital Strokes that Policy itself could think of; and in Support of this Opinion, it is well known, that the Inhabitants of these Isles are at this Time ripe for a Revolt. They transmit to Europe yearly, in the four following Articles only, viz. Sugars, to the Amount of Cottons, — — —. Indigo, — —- — Coffee, — — — 5,250,000 300,000 450,000 200,000 6,200,000 In all, What a great Accession of Wealth, if turned into the Channel of British Commerce An old Correspondent desires us to insert, on the Reputation of a Man of Honour, that, notwithstanding all Assertions to the contrary, the French have been for some Days making great Preparations for War, and working Day and Night; and he further declares, that he has Reason to imagine the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are apprised of it, though they withold from the Public the original Let- ter of Intelligence. An Account from Genoa says, that the De- signs of the Spanish Ministry are impenetrable ; that several Spanish Ships have lately sailed to Ferrol, where they have 30 Men of War ready to put to Sea, on the shortest Notice. The Captains of several Ships at Barcelona write to their Owners in London, that they are in great Danger of being seized by the Spa- niards, as they hourly expect War to be declared against England, and therefore intreat them to insure both Ships and Cargoes immediately ; that they will take the first Opportunity of sailing from thence for Gibraltar, where they hope to arrive safe before the Declaration of War; and that they intend to wait there till they can have a Convoy for England. These Letters are dated the first Instant. Tuesday Policies were opened for insuring several Ships and their Cargoes from Barcelona to Gibraltar, at a considerable Premium; but the Underwriters did not chuse to underwrite them, so certain are they that it cannot be long before War is declared against Spain. A Bill is intended to be brought into Par- liament to take away the Charter from the Province of Massachuset's Bay. The last Letters from Paris advise, that an epidemical Distemper rages at Amiens, which has carried off Abundance of People. Authentic Letters from Vienna say, that Ali Bey, the Pacha of Egypt, had made himself Master of Mecca, and had been crowned King of Egypt. Wednesday a Motion was made by Coun- sellor Lucas, in the Court of King's Bench, against a Pamphletseller in the Strand, for sel- ling, some Time since, ah Evening Paper, in which was inserted a Letter to Sir John Fielding, signed VERITAS, highly reflecting on that Magistrate's Character; on which the Court granted a Rule. They write from Dublin, that on the 26th ult. the Land- Bailiff to the Hon. St. George Caulsield, Esq; late Chief Justice of the King's Bench, armed himself with a Broad Sword, and with a Vizard on his Face, went up to his Master's Apartment, and demanded Money. The Gentleman bid him take what lay on the Table, which was no inconsiderable Sum ; but the Fellow said he must have more: He then observing his Master taking Hold of the Bell Rope, he struck his Arm with the Sword, which cut him to the Bone. The Servants hearing the Bell ring, came to their Master, and found him bleeding. The Fellow fled out of the Room, and leaped out of an Upper Window, by which he broke his Back. The ungrateful Villain was brought into his Master's Presence, and confessed he had no Accomplices, but died the next Day. Extract of a Letter from Newcastle, Oct. 6. " The Wife of John Fairlam, Glass- Cutter here, was a few Days ago perfectly cured of a violent Fever by Dr. James's Powder, after she had been given up by the Faculty, who attended her in ail the Stages of it, and when she was thought past Recovery by every Body. James Brodie, Esq; happening at this Time to call upon her Husband upon Business, and finding him in great Distress, asked him the Occasion of it, and was informed his Wife was dying. On this Mr. Brodie enquired what her Disorder was, and desired to see her, then told Mr. Fair- lam, that he had saved the Lives of several of his Tenants and poor Neighbours, when there was as little Hopes of their Recovery as of hers, and prevailed on him to let him give her the Powders, which he did with his own Hand, and it had the desired Effect: In one Day's Time she was quite easy and clear of the Fever, and though, very weak, recovered perfectly in a few Days more, to the Astonishment of every Body. This can be attested by Hundreds who live in Sandgate, the Street where Mr. and Mrs. Fair- lam still reside." The Irish Remonstrance is expected from Dublin before the End of next Week. Monday a Running Footman, which the Duke of Gloucester lately brought over with him from Germany, ran before his Royal High- ness's Carriage and Six, from Hampton Court to his House in Upper Grosvenor- Street ( 15 Miles) in fifty Minutes.

Dr. James's POWDER, For Fevers, the Small Pox, Measles, Pleurisies, Quinsies, Acute Rheumatisms, Colds, and all Inflammatory and Epidemical Disorders, as well as for those which are called Nervous, Hypo- chondriac, and Hysteric. AS many Accounts have been received of the spurious and adulterated Preparations of this Medicine, the Venders of which, in order to shield their Designs, have fraudently usurped the Names of Dr. James and Mr, Newbery, have imitated the Papers of Directions, and forged the Seal; and as repeated Com plaints have been mare of the dangerous and even fatal Tendency of these counterfeited Powders, by People who have either experienced or have been Witnesses to their pernicious Effects, It became a Matter of Importance to obviate such Impositions as well to vindicate the Repu- tation of the Genuine Medicine, as to establish some Cri- terion, whereby the Public might be assured of its Au- thenticity, They are therefore desired to observe, that since the 25th of March, 1767, all the Papers of Dr. James's Powder, have been sold with the Name R. James, written at the Bottom of the printed Directions with the Doctor's own Hand, and that for the future, no one paper of his Powder will be sold without being so signed by him. This Precaution, it is hoped, will be sufficient to defeat the wicked Purposes of avaritious and designing Men; for it is presumed, that those who have hither to not scrupled to commit a Fraud, will be cautious of being guilty of Felony by forging Dr. James Name. These Powders are sold, Wholesale and Retail, by Francis Newbery, Junior ( only Son of the late Mr. John Newbery, and his Successor in the sole, Right of vending and disposing of the same) at his Father's late House, No. 65, the Bible and Sun," on the North Side of St. Paul's Church Yard, London ; sold also by H. Borrow, Printer, in Worcester; and the Worcester Newsmen. N. B. Whoever will give Information of any Person or Persons counterfeiting this Medicine, so that they may be convicted thereof, shall revive Twenty Guineas on the Conviction of every such Offender. By the said F. Newbery are sold all the other Medicine in which the late Mr. John Newbery was concerned, viz. Dr. Hooper's Female Pills. The Cephalic Snuff for Disorders of the Head. The Stomachic Lozenges for Complaints of the Stomach and Bowels. Mr. Greenough's Tincture for the Teeth. The Issue Plaisters. The Powder for Horses and Horned Cattle, & c. & c. with good Allowance to those who buy Quantities for charitable Uses, or to sell again. MONDAY'S POST. Which contains many INTERESTING Particulars that have not yet appeared in any other Country Paper. Arrived the Dutch and French Mails. Constantinople, October3. Plague still continues to make great Havock in this Capital and Parts adjacent. One Half of the Inhabitants of the Suburb of Galata have died of that fatal Dis- temper, which carried off one thousand Per- sons daily, for several successive Days. Warsaw, Oct. 31. A Courier is just arrived here from the Army of Count Romanzow, with the News of the taking of Bialogorod: This City, situated on the Black Sea, at the Mouth of the Neister, surrendered by Capitulation; and the Garrison, consisting of 2800 Men, pas- sed the Danube the 4th Instant. The Ruffians found in this City 70 Pieces of Cannon, 64 of which are of Brass, with 18 Mortars of the fame Metal. This Conquest does great Honour to Brigadier Igelstrom, who had only 6000 Men under his Command, to make the Siege of this important Place. Berlin, Nov. 6. We learn from Cosel, in Upper Silesia, that a Polish Lady arrived there with several Domestics, who all died suddenly in the Night after their Arrival: This Accident caused a general Consternation amongst the Inhabitants, who concluded they died of the Plague; but happily it was proved that they were poisoned by eating Mushrooms. Antwerp, Nov. 9. All the Officers in the Spanish Service, who were retired to this Pro- vince, to pass the Winter with their Friends, have received Orders from the Court of Madrid to repair to their respective Regiments with the utmost Expedition. LONDON, Saturday, Nov. 17. Yesterday a Motion was made in the Lower Assembly, to bring in a Bill to prohibit the Exportation of Wheat, Meal, Malt, & c. It was carried for the Non- Exportation, 155 to 16. We hear that a great Lady has declared She will interfere no more in public Affairs. It is said that L— M d has again strongly urged the immediate Appointment of a Person for the S s, as his Health will not permit him to attend the great Fatigue of Busi- ness of the H of L s, together with theC- tof K ' sB h. It is positively said the Middlesex Election will be introduced again, among the first Bu- siness that is transacted in the Upper House. Mr. Burke, in a certain Society, in decla- ring his Sentiments of a certain Oration, said, he had received more and better Information, with Respect to the Cause of our Dispute with Spain, from the public News- papers, than in that authentic Relation. Lord N. flatly denies his ever having bar gained with France about a Mediation with Spain; although it is well known that Mr. Coates went to Paris on that Errand, and is there now. It is said that the Land Tax will be raised this Year to 4s. in the Pound. The Weft India Merchants are threatened this Session with the Imposition of a new Tax upon Sugar. Yesterday the Sheriffs went to St. James's to know his Majesty's Pleasure when the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council might be permitted to wait on him with an Address, Remonstrance, and Petition, from the City of London; and his Majesty was pleased to ap- point next Wednesday at Two o'clock. It is said that the following Aldermen intend to accompany the Lord Mayor to St. James's, to present the Remonstrance to his Majesty, viz. Stephenson, Trecothick, Turner, Town- fend, Sawbridge, Wilkes and Oliver; and about 100 of the Common Council. If the long complained of Grievances should not be redressed on presenting the above Re- monstrance, the patriotick Party have still a Corps de Reserve. A Common- Hall will then be called, in order to agree to an Address to his Majesty, which is to be presented by the whole Body of the Livery. The following is an exact Copy of a Letter sent by Mr. Serjeant Glynn to the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, and read at the last Court of Common Council: " My Lord, " Your Lordship will, I hope, excuse the Liberty I take in desiring your Lordship to communicate to the Common Council of the City, my most grateful Acknowledgment of the Honour they have bestowed on me in their Re- solution of the twelfth of October. " As I am conscious of no other Motive than a Desire to defend the constitutional Rights of my Fellow Subjects from Violation, I am happy in finding that my Conduct has met with a favourable Interpretation from them, and think my weak Endeavours molt amply re- warded by this honourable Testimony of the Confidence and Approbation of so respectable a Body. My Lord, I have the Honour to be Red Lion Square, Your most obedient Nov. 7, 1770. humble Servant, To the Right Hon. Barlow J. GLYNN. Trecothick, Esq; It is laughable that the Recorder of the City of London had Yesterday, at the Court of Com- mon Council, by Virtue of his Office, the Mor- tification of reading to the whole Court, the above Letter of Mr. Serjeant Glynn, thanking them, in the gentlest Terms, for the Honour they had conferred upon him, by choosing him City Council in the Room of himself. A Letter from North America mentions that all the Colonies have amicably agreed to im- port every Article from Great Britain, Asia Tea excepted. We are told that the concerted Measure for depriving the Province of Massachusets Bay of its Charter, is highly disapproved even by the warmest Friends of Administration, and there- fore will be laid aside. On Thursday the Spanish ambassador was at Court, but was so littlepleasedwith his Recep- tion, that hescarcestayeda Minute, owing, it is said, to his finding a Door shut against him that used always to be open; but it is imagined that this Circumstance happened by Accident rather than Design. We hear that the Ships which are sent off to retake Falkland's Island, have Orders to take it by Force immediately, without asking any Questions. If the Men of War lately gone to retake Falkland's Island, should sail in their Enter- prize, a Fleet of ten Men of War of the Line, besidesseveralFrigates, Bombs, & c. under the Command of an old- experienced Sea Officer, will be sent thither to take Possession of it in the Name of the King of Great Britain. It is currently reported, that the Spaniards have marched an Army of several thousand Men to the Frontiers of Portugal to act as Auxiliaries in Cafe that Kingdom should shortly stand in Need of their Assistance. Upwards of ninety Merchant Ships are now full laden in the River, the Owners of which do not think it safe for them to proceed to Sea without Convoy. A Fleet to the Weft Indies is at length, we hear, agreed on; and it is said that several armed Frigates are to watch the Motions of the French in their own Western Islands. It is remarkable that when Lord Barrington was asked the other Day, Why there was no Commander in Chief? he owned himself so much at a Loss, that he called upon the Society then present to recommend one. The Ballance of the Manilla Ransom, for which we have at this Time a Demand on Spain, amounts to the Sum of 964, 0001. and upwards. If any Thing can give us a strong Idea of the Corruption and Venality of the Age, it is when People will take Bribes from those who, by the proper Regulations of Government, ought to perform Quarantine, to prevent the Propagation of an infectious Distemper. Some- thing of this Kind, we are informed, happened very lately to a Passenger in a Vessel from Leg- horn. The Person so dismissed could not con- ceal his Joy in escaping from such a Place as Standgate Creek. The Questions in the Cafe relating to the Lord Mayors of London, laid before Serjeant Glynn, and Mess. Dunning and Wedderburn, for their Opinions, and on whichthoseGentle- men are to have Consulation, are these: How far is a Lord Mayor of London obliged to obey the Orders of a Privy Council; or how far the Re- quisitions of the Lords of the Admiralty are founded on those Orders; and What is the Con- sequence of a Refusal to obey in either Case? If it should be the Opinion of the above three Gentlemen of the Law, that the Lord Mayors of London are not bound to pay Obei- sa nce to the Mandates of the Privy Council, or the Precepts of the Admiralty thereon, we areassuredthat the present patriotic Lord Mayor will not permit a single Man to be pressed within his Jurisdiction. This Step, it is ima- gined, will inevitably oblige the Government to adopt some more constitutional Mode of manning the Royal Fleets in Times of Emer- gency, than that illegal one of Pressing. The Cause respecting the Right of Country Post- Mailers to make an additional Charge for delivering their Letters, came on Yesterday at Westminster- Hall, but as the Matter is of much Importance to the Public, it is put off to be argued next Term. When the Body of the late Mr. Grenville was opened by the Surgeons, Hawkins and Hunter, it appeared that the Blood- Vessels in the Head were nearly empty, and had fallen on the Brain; and that the Rib- Bones on one Side were all rotten, and melted to a Fungus, and two on the other Side in the fame Manner. It is said that this is the most extraordinary Cafe ever met with of the Kind. We hear that the present Contest for Mem- ber for the County of Cambridge ( in the room of the late Marquis of Granby) between Sir Sampson Gideon and Mr. Brand, is likely to be the warmest ever known at that Place, as, it is said, both Parties have already given unlimited Commissions with respect to Expences. We are desired, by his Excellency the Rus- sian ambassador, to contradict the Extract of a Letter from Petersburgh, relative to a Con- spiracy being formed against the Life of the Empress of Russia, as such Report deserves not the least Credit, nor has it the Shadow of Pro- bability. Litter from Portsmouth, Nov. 14. " The Fever that raged on board the out- ward- bound Dutch East Indiaman at St. He- len's, is greatly abated; the People that were ill are all recovering, being now able to walk the Deck daily. They have not, on Exami- nation, lost more than eight Men, and two Custom- house Officers who caught the Distem- per. The Sickness is no more than the com- mon Gaol Black Fever. Several People that went on board with the Custom- house Officers, and who were obliged to stay there, are all well, and have not been attacked. This Fever is what is common on board a great Number of Skips when young Recruits are stuffed so close- together, as is the Cafe with the above Ship. We dare say that in a Week or two they will be all well. They write from Manchester, that as the Ship Mars was going out of Liverpool, for Ja- maica, attended by several Gentlemen, Clerks, Women, and Pilots, to the Amount of 22 Persons, the Pilot Boat, meeting with a strong Easterly Wind, and losing her Stays, was driven upon Hoyle's Bank where the struck; most of the People immediately took to the Punt, but shesinking in the Breakers, and it being an Ebb- Tide, was driven on the Bank again; when she was relieved eleven Men got into her to fetch the People on Shore from the Pilot Boat, but the Tide being against them, eight of the Men died at the Oar with the Fatigue; the Pilot Boat was beaten to Pieces, and all the Persons on board perished ( among which was the Owner of the Ship) except two Pilots and a Clerk; one of the Pilots Sons being quite spent with Rowing, came to his Father, laid his Head on his Knee, and instantly expired at his Feet, An Account is arrived of the safe Arrival of Sir John Lindsay, at Bombay. This Morning, between Two and Three, a Fire broke out at the Coach Office, the Bottom of Surry- street, in the Strand, which entirely consumed the same, together with the House of Neale, Esq; above it, and on the other Side, the House of Mr. Comyns, the Quaker, who planned the Taking of Senegal. The Flames raged with great Fury for a con- siderable Time, and it was with much Diffi- culty Mr. Crosby, Head Clerk of the Coach Office, and three young Women, his Daugh- ters, saved their Lives by getting along the Gutter on the Roof into the Garret of Robert Smith, Esq; whose House having a strong Party Wall, happily put a Stop to the farther spread- ing of the Conslagration.

THURSDAY'S POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON. ) Yesterday arrived the Mails from HOLLAND. Naples, October 18. HE last Letters from Madrid de- clare, that the Spanish Troops con- tinue to march towards Andalusia, and other Provinces of the King- dom and that a body of Walloon Guards had taken the Route of Cadiz, Part of which are to reinforce the Garrison of that City, and the reft to be sent to America. Orders have been given in Spain to enroll the Names of all the young Persons above the Age of 15 Years. Madrid, Oct. 22. The Motions made by our Troops, appear to announce War as inevi- table. They have actually formed three En- campments; one in Andalusia, another in Ga- licia, and a third in the Province of Murcia. The Conferences at Court are extremely fre- quent, and M. d'Aranda is always present at them. The Establishment of a Militia to serve by Land and Sea, to prevent any unexpected Attack, is in Agitation. Marseilles, Nov. 2. The Captain of a Dutch Ship, which left Malaga the 15th of October, declares that at his Departure the Fortifications were put in a Posture of Defence, and that a Detachment of Troops had arrived there for the Security of the Port and the City. COUNTRY NEWS. Portsmouth, Nov. 18. Last Saturday arrived ere the eight Transports from the Downs, which are as soon as possible to take some Troops on board, for reinforcing the Garrisons of Port Mahon and Gibraltar; they arc to fail under Convoy of fix Men of War and four Frigates ; which, after having landed the Forces at the above Places, are to join the Fleet already in the Mediterranean ; and it is thought we shall then be a Match for any Fleet the Spa- niards will be able to fend into those Seas. Se- veral Store- ships are likewise to fail with the above Fleets, with Provisions for the aforesaid Garrisons. Yesterday Morning a Gentleman landed here, and set out immediately for London ; he came Express from Cadiz, in a small Sloop; since She is gone, it is said, that he let fall some Ex- pressions, by which it appeared, that the Spa- niards had seized a Merchant- ship richly laden, soon after the had failed from Cadiz ; she was bound to London, but he did not mention her Name. LONDON, Tuesday, Nov. 20. We are assured that a Great Parsonage is more inclined to War now than ever since the Commencement of our present Dispute, and that he is determined to offer and support his Opinion on an approaching Day. We are informed that the Council sum- moned to meet on the 28th Instant, are to take into Consideration and decide the important question, Peace or War ? It is said that L- d M has refused to give his Advice, or be present at the Meeting when the Question for War or Peace is to be agitated. Yesterday the D— of R d gave Notice in a great Assembly, that she should make a Motion on Thursday next, for an Address to his M y, that he would be pleased to give Directions for the proper Papers and Intelli- gence which had come to the Hands of any of his Majesty's Ministers in Regard to Falkland's Island, to be laid before the Assembly, and de- sired that the Members of that Assembly might be summoned for that Day, It is said that one of the Articles stipulated by the British Court to the Court of Spain, to- wards a Reparation of the late Insult received by the former is, " the immediate hanging up of the Governor of Buenos Ayres." Five Sail of Battle Ships, fully manned and equipped, are now waiting at St. Helen's for a Wind. Their Destination is a Secret. We learn that the Commanders of English Vessels have received a Caution from Authority, to be careful in not entering any Spanish Port at this Time, but upon Cafes of the greatest Emergency, and in not remaining in them longer than the Occasion absolutely renders necessary. Two Regiments, now stationed in the Pro vince of Ulster, in Ireland, are ordered, we hear, to be prepared to embark on the shortest Notice. It is a current Fact, that Capt. Gower, of the Pearl, and Capt. Jarvis, of the Alarm, both slipped their Cables, and got off by Night out the Bay of Cadiz, having an Order so to do I telling them at the same Time, the Design of the Spaniards against Gibraltar was no longer a Secret, and that 25,000 French Troops were arrived that Day and the Day before at Ferrol with some of the best Engineers of France. On Sunday at Eleven o'clock an Express arrived at the Admiralty, with an Account of the French Fleet having failed, consisting of the following Ships of the Line and Frigates : Duke of Burgoigne of 80 Guns, Conquerant of 74, Desenseur 74, Glorieux 74, Diademe 74, Guerrier 74, Magnisique 74, Robuste 74, Dauphine Royale 70, Palmier 74, Vierge da Rosaire 64, Solide 64, Vengeur 64, Actis 64, Protecteur 74., La Galliord 36, L' Arathuse 32, La Cheval Marin 32, and La Courvette 20. Yesterday at Noon Betts were laid at Lloyd's of an Hundred Guineas to Twenty, that War will be declared against Spain before next Wed- nesday Se'nnight. We hear that Sir Edward Hawke will shortly resign the Office of First Lord of the Admiralty, on Account of his ill State of Health, which does not permit him to attend the Business of that Department. " Tis reported that Sir Edward Hawke will be succeeded by the Earl of Sandwich ; other Reports fay, that in cafe of a War the late Premier will preside at that Board. We hear that the Earl of Dysart will be elected one of the 16 Peers for Scotland in the room of the late Duke of Argyle; and that the Earl of Roseberry is to have the Green Ribband. We hear that some late Differences between two patriotic Gentlemen, were entirely ad- justed at a late Meeting of the Parties. The Bill for laying an additional Duty on Foreign Linnens, which was expected to be passed the Beginning of the present Session, is deferred for six Weeks, there being more im- portant Business on the Tapis. Some Regulations respecting the Licences granted to Publicans, are soon to take Place, preventive of the many Abuses committed by improper Persons, to whom those Licences are granted. A Letter dated Cambridge, Nov. 18, says, Our Town has been a Scene of Drunkenness and Riot: but, thank God, it has subsided, Mr. Brand having declined standing, so that Sir Sampson Gideon has now no Competitor. The Election will be on Thursday next." This Day, in the Court of King's Bench, the Judges gave their Opinion on the Verdict given in the Cause of the King against Wood- fall, for printing Junius's Letter, when they ordered a new Trial, in Consideration that from the Nature of the verdict the Jury were not unanimous in their Opinions on the subject. Mr. Almon has received Notice to appear To- morrow in the Court of King's Bench, to receive Judgement for felling the said Letter of Junius. Yesterday Mr. Stephens, Author of the Pam- phlet against the Illegality of Imprisonment for Debt, was, by a Bench Rule called up before Lord Mansfield and the rest of the Judges of the King's Bench, where he spoke for above Half an Hour, on the Subject of his Pamphlet and his Cafe, quoted Magna Charta and seve- ral Acts of Parliament, with great Readiness, and insisted on his Releasement, which he urged as his Right, and the Right of every subject of Great Britain. Lord Mansfield heard him very attentively the whole Time, and when he had concluded, said, " it was not in his Power to comply with his Request and remanded him back to Prison. Mr. Stephens then asked whether that was his Lordship's final Opinion ? and being answered in the Affirmative, " he desired his Lordship to take Care whether the Prisoners would not right themselves." After he had been some Time gone, the Marshal of the King's Bench whispered Lord Mansfield, that the Prisoners of that Prison had broke out, on which his Lordship was giving some private Directions about it, which Mr. Justice Alton overhearing, said, he did not understand Whis- pering, on an Affair of that Importance ; that as the Offence was heinous, it could not be made too public, and ordered the Marshal to get together a proper Force to go in Quell of them ; observing, that he could not fit on that Bench with Propriety, without straining every Nerve of Chastisement for so glaring an Insult on the Laws of this Country. The Earl of Northing ton is dangerously ill of the Gout, at his House in Grosvenor- street. Advices from Ireland mention, that the Mer- chants and Traders of that Kingdom are now thrown into the greatest Difficulties, by a sudden Resolution taken amongst the Bankers in Dublin not to discount any Notes for the fu- ture, which has almost entirely put a Stop to Trade, for Want of a sufficient Circulation of Cash. Saturday Morning, upwards of Three Hun- dred Weight of Gunpowder was found under the Ruins of the late Fire in Surry street, by the Firemen, happily before the Flames had reached the fame, otherwise the Consequence might have been dreadful. They write from Newcastle, of the 17 th In- stant, that the River Whittator, which runs into the Tweed about a Mile above Berwick, was so swelled by the great Rains, that two Arches of the Bridge over the first- mentioned River were carried away, which will be a great Loss to Berwick, as it cannot be repaired this Season. Sunday the Rev. Mr. Wesley preached a Fu- neral Sermon, on Mr. Whitfield's Death, in the Morning, at Tottenham Court Chapel ; and in the Afternoon at the Tabernacle in Moorfields ; the Inside of each Place was lined with Black, and Escutcheons round the Pulpits. The Multitudes that went with Design to hear the Sermon, exceed all Belief; the Chapel and Tabernacle were both filled as soon as they were opened, and were so much crouded that the Service was perpetually interrupted with the Screams and Shrieks of Women faint- ing. Many Thousands could not get in, and were obliged to return Home, to their great Mortification. Friday a Man was carried before the Sitting Alderman at Guildhall, for defrauding one Mr. Hogg, who lives in Southwark, in the following Manner : He advertised for procuring Places in some of the public Offices under the Government, and was to be met with at a House on Ludgate - Hill. Accordingly Mr Hogg applied to him ; the Prisoner desired to know what Money he could raise ; Mr. Hogg replied 20l. the other answered, that he must have 30l. However, at length, he agreed to take the 20l and Part of his Furniture for the Remainder ; the Money was paid. The Pri- soner then gave the Purchaser Directions to come to his House in Norfolk- Street to finish. the Business ; Mr. Hogg went the next Day and knocked at the Door, when two Men in Livery appeared, who said their Mailer was not at Home ; he went several Times after, but could not fee him : At length Mr. Hogg discovered, that he lodged in Water- Lane ; upon which he got a Warrant, secured him, and he was sent to Wood- Street Compter for further Examina- tion, as several more Persons are expected to appear against him, who have been defrauded in the like Manner. Yesterday the Lottery began drawing at Guildhall, when No. 19,089, being the first drawn Ticket, is entitled to 1000I. — The same Day the following other Prizes were, drawn, viz.

WORCESTER, Thursday, November 22 The late excessive Rains having occasioned an extraordinary Overflow of the Rivers Severn, Avon, Team, & c. a moil alarming Flood ensued, being the highest and moil extensive ever known in these Parts, and from which we have too great Reason to fear many melancholy Acci- dents must have happened, and immense Da- mages been sustained by great Numbers of People.— In respect to this Place, we have to observe, that in Dolday, Newport- Street, & c . many Houses were flooded several Feet above the Ground Floor, so that the Families were obliged to retreat up Stairs, where they were supplied with Necessaries in at their Chamber Windows, by the Help of Boats. In Hinton- Lane, the Pinch, & c. on the other Side the Bridge, many Tenements, occupied by poor People, being surrounded with Water up to their Lodging- Rooms, some deserted their Ha- bitations by the best Means they could, and left their little All behind them ; whilst others, who were unable to remove, through Illness, & c. ( amongst whom was a poor Wo- man, aged about 50, in Labour) remained relying on Providence for Deliverance, of some Relief in their distressful Situation. Mr. Hill Timber- Merchant, was likewise no small Suf- ferer ; for his Timber- Yard being situated near the River Side, the Current swept away a great Quantity of his Timber. By this extraordinary Inundation, it must be supposed that our usual Communication and Intercourse with the neighbouring Towns, & c. have been greatly obstructed.--- The Post from London, which should have come in on Saturday, by Eight in the Morning, did not arrive till Sunday Afternoon ; and the Stage - Coaches that were to have come in on Saturday Night were obliged to lay short several Miles. Other Polls and Stages, to and from hence, were likewise unable to perform their Journeys. To this Calamity, a terrible Devastation by Fire had like to have happened amongst us; for the Key being overflowed, the Water found its Way into a Warehouse belonging to Mr. Jackson, where happened to be a great Quan- tity of Lime, which set Fire to the Building, and it was making a very quick Progress, but by speedy Assistance it was extinguished before it did any considerable Damage. For the Relief of the poor Sufferers by the Flood in Hinton- Lane, the Pinch, & c, a Col lection has been making, at the Instigation of: the Mayor, through the several Parishes of this City, and many Persons have contributed very liberally ; amongst whom were several of the People called Quakers : But the great Hu- manity, and compassionate Assiduity, of Mr. Timothy Bevington, in particular, cannot be sufficiently admired and applauded on this, melancholy Occasion, who, with some Assis- tants, on Saturday ( though it was then a moil dangerous Adventure) took Boat, and visited the above- mentioned miserable Wretches, be- came an Eye Witness of their Distress, and! relieved them with some Bread he had brought in the Boat, and likewise gave them Money, & c. being a Contribution amongst his Neigh- bours for the present Support of the said poor People. In the Year 1672 an extraordinary Flood happening here, the extreme Rise of the Ri- ver Severn was noticed against a Wall by the Side of the River, near the College Green, and a Plate still remains in the Wall, record- ing that Event : In order that it might be known how much the present Flood exceeded that, the Hon. and Rev. Dr. Digby, our worthy Rise of the Water against the same Wall, and to observe its utmost Reach, which, it seems, was about Two o'Clock last Sunday Morning, when it had rose ten Inches above the said High- water Mark of the Year 1672. Many other Places, by their Vicinity to one or other of the Rivers afore mentioned, we find have been very sensibly Affected by this terrible Inundation, particularly Gloucester, Tewkes-. bury, Upton, Bewdley, Bridgnorth, Stratford, Bengworth, Pershore, and the adjacent Vil- lages ; and as there was likewise a great Over- flow from the several Brooks in these Parts, the whole Country for many Miles around us has presented a molt dismal Scene. At the Village of Clifton, near Severn Stoke, most of the Dwellings were so highly flooded, that the Inhabitants were obliged to take Refuge in their Garrets, from whence they were taken away by Boats.— The Flood having one Even- ing reached a lone Cottage, near Severn- Stoke, inhabited by a poor old Man and his Wife, they were soon obliged to retire up Stairs, and at their usual Time went to Bed ; but by the Time they awaked in the Morning, the Water had reached up to their Bed- Chamber, upon which they made a Way out through the Thatch, and fat across the Ridge of their Dwelling till a Boat could come to their Assist- ance. The Inhabitants at a great many other Villages, we hear, have been in the like dis- tressed Situation. We have just now heard, that two Arches of the Bridge at Bridgnorth, have been forced down by the Rapidity of the Flood. And it is likewise said, that Buildwas Bridge, above Bridgnorth, is entirely destroyed. By Letters from Gloucester we learn, that the Flood ( being stopped by the Spring Tides) had occasioned a dreadful Inundation near that City. All that Part of the City towards the River is so much under Water that the Inha- bitants are many of them obliged to leave their Houses, and others are confined to their upper Rooms. In the Street between the Foreign Bridge and the Westgate there are upwards of three Feet Water ; and Boats are plying in St. Mary's Square, and even in the College Church Yard. The Mails from this Place, and from South Wales, which should have arrived early on Saturday Morning, did not get there till late on Sunday, and were then obliged to be brought to the Post Office Door in Boats. On Monday last there was a Meeting of the Mayor and Corporation of that City, to con- sider of proper Measures for relieving the dis- tressed Poor, who have suffered by this dread- ful Inundation. By Letters from Birmingham we learn, that on Thursday last, as Mr. Robert Willis, of Tamworth, was passing the new Bridge at that Place, the Rapidity of the Flood carried away one of the Arches, by which Accident he was unfortunately drowned. At Wrighten, near Coventry, the Bridge has been broke down by the Floods, which detains a Number of Carriages and Passengers at that Place. One Night last Week, as Mr. William Cooke, a very wealthy honest Farmer and Horse dealer, of Sedgborough, was returning Home from Bengworth, he was unfortunately drowned, in endeavouring to pass over Sedg- borough Bridge, which is very narrow, and was then deeply flooded. He had staid at the Red Lyon in Bengworth till Eleven o'clock, when being in Liquor the Landlady urged him to stay all Night, but could not prevail on him. His Body was found the next Morning in a Ground near his own House. He has left be- hind him a Wife and five Children. Extract of a Letter from Tenbury, Worcestershire, dated November 21st. " On Friday and Saturday last, we had the highest Flood that ( I presume) was ever known here ; the major Part of the Inhabitants were obliged to retire to their upper Rooms, some with Provisions, Firing, & c. and some with- out either. " I need not enlarge on the Calamities of the Flood, as you will have dismal Accounts from other Places ; but how greatly did it add to our Consternation, on Sunday Morning, when the Waters abated, and we were able to get out of Doors, to find that the greatest Part of our spacious Parish Church was reduced to a Heap of Rubbish ! " The Fall was on Saturday Morning, about Two or Three o'Clock, when the Organ, the Pulpit, Reading- Desk, and molt of the Pews in the Middle and South Isles, were, it is thought, by the Fall of the Roofs, broke to Pieces. " The Reason of this Catastrophe cannot yet be ascertained, the Ruins not being yet removed ; but it is thought the Water, at dif- ferent Times, sapping the Foundation of this antient Church, was the Occasion of its being thus rendered unfit for public Worship. " Our Bridge has likewise received great Damage by this Inundation." The Assize of Bread is as follows, viz. Wheaten lb 0 1 3 6 4 8 9 11 Penny Loaf to weigh Two- penny Loaf Six- penny Loaf Twelve penny Loaf Eighteen- penny Loaf The Halfpenny Bach Cake not less than 4 Ounces 5 Drams, the Penny ditto not less than 8 Ounces 11 Drams; and no other Sort of Bach Cakes is be made. dr. 11 6 2 4 7 Household 0z. dr.

ON Tuesday the 13th Inst. the Debates com- - menced for the Winter Season, when both the Upper and Lower Societies were extremely full. The former transmitted, as usual some Propositions to the latter, which being read by the Chairman, were afterwards largely and lamely ex- patiated upon by Mr. Greville, from whom little could be heard or understood, except a Motion for the Thanks of the Society for the above Pro- positions. He was seconded very audibly, in the sermonizing Way, by Mr. Ap- Rice. Consider- able Objections, however, to these Thanks were raised 0n the other Side of the Room, particularly by the great Performer Mr. Barry, who poured forth his Eloquence for above an Hour, by the Glass; in the Midst of which a Thunder Storm broke forth that almost shook the Room, but hap- pily a Calm soon succeeded. In the Course of this Oration much Freedom was taken with a cer- tain Insinuation, that a late hostile Proceeding was the Act of the Governor 0f Buenos Ayres. He desired to be informed, if it was certain that this Gover- nor had acted from his own Motion, and not from the Instruction of his Court; in which Case he must have taken upon him to warn the English from Falkland's Island; afterwards to threaten them with a Force that should oblige them to leave the Place; and, lastly, actually to fend that Force, and all this without receiving Orders to do so from the King his Master. He added, with great Pleasantry, that he had formerly been well ac- - quainted with this Governor, who was at that Time an Officer in a superior Command, and had great Merit: " But little ( says he) did my good Friend Don Francisco ever dream of arriving at this Pitch of Honour, and being considered by the K. of G. B. as his Enemy." But the Resentment of the K. of G. B. it seems, is to be levelled for two Years together against a wretched Libeller; mid now' against the poor Governor of Buenos Ayres ; against John Wilkes, Esq; just come out of the King's - Bench Prison; and my old Ac- - quaintance, Don Francisco. He farther observed, that the Conquest of C0r- siea was to be considered. as the Prelude to a War; that the least spirited Measure, on our Part, would have prevented it, and that the French, would even have been thankful for having had a Pretence given them, whereby they, might have saved so much Blood and Treasure. That if the Prepara- - tions, now carrying On in such a Panic, had been, vigorously began some Months past, they would have given us our own Conditions, upon which to have made up the Breach. That instead of this, 110 one Measure of any Consequence had been taken. That the Gentlemen had been idling may the Summer at their Country Seats; and that at this Time we lie open and defenceless to an Attack wherever we have Possessions; without too the least Dependance upon the Wealth and Arms of, our Colonists, who so gloriously assisted with both in the last War. " Sir W. M. observed, that what seemed most extraordinary to him in the Speech was, that the Governor of. Buenos Ayres should be the only Prince mentioned to have committed Hostilities against the K. of G. B. and wanted to know what Potentate this Governor of Buenos Ayres was, that dared to attack his Majesty's Domi- nions without Provocation ? That he feared there was something covered under that Deceit; that it seemed to proclaim, to all Europe the Subterfuge the English Ministry wanted to take Advantage of, by disclaiming the Act of their Governor, and thereby evading the Stroke that ought to have been returned, before it was in their Power to re- pel it.. As to the Mention made of our Colonies, he said, that he did not like that vindictive Spirit that seemed to threaten Vengeance against the only Protestant Colony on which this Country can with Confidence rely against the common Enemy; and wished the Ministry would declare openly what was their Intention: That he had, during the Recess, Opportunities of discovering the Satisfac- tion with which the Accounts wire received, by the Manufacturers of this Kingdom, that the Spirit of Opposition was beginning to subside in our Colonies: that our Brethren in America were again sending their Orders to their Correspon- dents as usual, and that Commerce was returning to the old Channel; that what was now threatened against the Massachusett's Bay, would again tend to rouse that Spirit of Combination that was now, in a great Measure, at Rest, and which would gradually die away, if no fresh Matter of Aggra- vation was proposed to increase them: That for his Part, he thought every American had a just Title to all the Rights of English Freedom, as he himself. had ; and that he would as soon give his Vote for the Deprivation of his own Right, as for that of his Fellow Subjects on the other Side of the Atlantic; that he had always opposed the Measures that had brought 011 the Dispute, and should ever oppose every Measure that was likely to continue it. It was farther observed on that Subject, that the Ministry to boast of with Regard to the late Resolutions of the Americans to renew their Commerce with the Mother Country, Who had done no more than the King of Prussia, and every other wise Prince did in the Conduct of commercial Affairs. When any of his Neigh- bours think it Policy to lay, a Duty upon any Com- modity that is imported into his Conntry, he im- mediately lays a greater Duty, which amounts to a Prohibition of that Commodity. Just so the Americans. When, upon commercial Principles, a Duty was laid upon certain Commodities that were imported into America, they immediately, upon commercial Principles, entered into an Agreement not to receive any of those; Commo- dities. When, upon commercial Principles, you thought proper to repeal those Duties, they again, upon commercial Principles, agreed to receive them. You still continue to retain the Duty upon Tea, to shew your Sovereignty; they still con- tinue their Agreement, hot to receive that Com- modity, to shew you that they deny it. What, therefore, is there in this, but the most consum- mate Policy, and the most determined Firmness that can animate any People whole Liberty is at Stake?
