Berrow's Worcester Journal. THURSDAY, December 13, 1770. No, 4002 . 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. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Petershourgh, November 6. Courier, dispatched by the Marquis Maruzzi from Ve- nice, has just brought here Advice of a great Revolution which has happened in Egypt, Ally Bey is declared Sultan, having made himself Master of that Kingdom, Arabia, Mecca, and Medina, also of the Port of Gedda on the Red Sea, so that he is now more considered by the Mussul- mans of Asia and Africa, than the Grand Sig- nior himself. He has written a Letter to the Senate of Venice, by which he offers his Friendship to the Republic, and full Security and Protection to her Merchants. This fatal Blow to the Porte will complete the Conster- nation which reigns at Constantinople, and from which the last Extremities are apprehended. LONDON, Thursday, Dec. 6. It is certain that his Prussian Majesty has acted as Mediator between the Courts of Great Britain and Madrid; and it is said that Matters will shortly be accommodated to the Satisfaction of all Parties. St. James's Chron. We are credibly informed that after Matters are thoroughly settled between England and Spain, the Court of Lisbon will be called to a strict Account, in which neither France or Spain are to meddle. Ibid. The Premier has declared within these few Days, that " he has the real Interest of his Country so much at Heart, as rather than in- volve it in a War, at any Rate at present, he is ready to risque his Head that the Negocia- tion now on Foot will turn out to the Satisfac- tion of the People in general." At the last Council, Sir E. H e, we are told, insisted upon the Dispatch of a strong Squadron to the West- Indies immediately; urging that this was the first Time since the Reign of Queen Elizabeth that our Islands were left entirely defenceless; but the Ministry re- plied, that a Measure of such great Importance required some further Time for their Con- sideration. We are assured that a great Personage has declared to his M—- ry, that he will in future keep a greater Naval Force both in the East and West Indies, and the Mediterranean ; and that all the Forts and Islands in those Parts shall be constantly kept in thorough Repair. We hear that the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty will soon be required to attend the House of Peers on very important Business. It is said that some new Regulations, no less salutary for the Colonies than satisfactory to the Mother Country, are now agitating ; the Hint of which was suggested by a Nobleman, who has on several Occasions distinguished himself in a Great Assembly. The following is authentic. Lord Chat- ham, in Yesterday's Debate, took Notice of the late Instructions that had been given to Ju- ries in Westminster Hall, with regard to Libels. Lord Mansfield, in Answer, said, that the Doc- trine he had laid down had been consistent with the uniform Practice for this Century ; that seven Judges had approved it; four were now living, and that three were dead ; that the Doctrine was established upon the clearest Ground of Law. Lord Chatham, in Answer, said, that if he conceived him right, the Doc- trine was, " that Libel, or not Libel, was a latter of Law, and was to be derided by the Bench ; and the Question to be left to the Jury to determine, was only the Fact of printing land publishing." To which Lord Mansfield assented. His Lordship then, with Lord Cam- den, expressed his Astonishment, both declaring that they had never understood that to be the Law of England, and concurred in wishing, " that a Day might be appointed for an EN- QUIRY into the Conduct of those Judges who had advanced such a Doctrine." A Gentleman of the deepest Erudition in the antient Laws of England, has publicly declared that L — d C was egregiously mistaken, and totally ignorant of our constitutional Laws, when he asserted the other Day that Press- War- rants were legal. This same Gentleman observes, that L — d C was equally uninformed of the con- sititutional Law of England, when he declared, that if any Member of his Club would move to bring the three doubting Aldermen before their Bar, he himself would second the Motion. The H-- of L s, he says, is the Subject's Court of Appeal, consequently no Process restrictive of the Subject's personal Liberty can legally originate in that H . It is said their Majesties have declared their Intention to receive the Custom of dining in public; and that Tickets for the Admission of such a Number of Spectators as can be con- leniently accommodated, will be delivered out periodically, with no other Distinction than Priority of Application. It is now the Opinion of some eminent Gen- tlemen, in the Law, that Lord Commissioner Bathurst will soon be appointed to the Seals. It is said that a very rich vacant See will be conferred on a patriotick Prelate, who voted last Winter with the Minority. A Resolution has passed, that the Duties already laid on. Malt, Mum, Cyder, and Perry, shall be continued for the Year 1771. An Order has been made to lay before a cer- tain great Assembly, the Quantity of Whalebone and Oil imported into and exported from Great Britain, from the 1st of January 1768, as far as the same can be made up, distinguishing the several Quantities imported and exported to each Place. We hear that in order the more effectually to secure this Kingdom from the Calamity of the Plague, Surgeons of Eminence will be appointed in each Parish, with a proper Salary, to act as Searchers, instead of the present ignorant venal Persons who are now employed on those Oc- casions. Captain Ayscough, Lieutenants Hay, Wat- son, & c. and all the others on the Press Service, waited Yesterday on the Lord- Mayor from the Lords of the Admiralty, to desire his Lordship to back the Press- Warrants, but his Lordship had too tender a Regard to the Rights of his Fellow- Citizens to comply with their Request, and the Press- Warrants are not backed. It is also certain, that his Lordship, in Com- pany with another Gentleman, did wait upon a noble Peer to ask his Opinion concerning Press- Warrants; and that the said Nobleman did pronounce them to be illegal, notwithstanding his Declarations to the contrary in the H — e. The Lord Mayor's refusing to sign the Press- Warrants, though seemingly authorized, and even recommended thereto, by the three Coun- cil who have given the Opinion on that Subject, has drawn upon him the Applause of every sensible and good Person, there being no Sort of Doubt, notwithstanding the Opinion of the above three Gentlemen, that such Warrants are illegally and expressly contrary to Magna Charta. We hear that Sir W. M h's Plan for deli- vering up all Criminals, convicted of flight Of- fences, to the East- India- Company for their Service, will speedily take Place. Last Week the Son of a public Defaulter betted One Hundred Guineas we should have no War in a Month, and Five Hundred more for three Months. A Correspondent, in treating on War and Peace, fays, " as to increasing Wealth by War, that has never yet happened to us, and, I be- lieve, but rarely to other Nations. Our Kings moil engaged in War were always poor, and sometimes excessively so; Edward III. pawned his Jewels to pay foreign Forces. The Black Prince was constrained to pledge his Plate. Henry V. with all his Conquests, pledged his Table and Stools of Silver which he had from Spain. Queen Elizabeth fold her very Jewels; nay, Edward III. pawned his Imperial Crown three Times, and Henry V. once did the same Thing. We feel still, continues he, the Weight which a most glorious War brought upon us; a War in which we were always victorious; and though it be true, that it might have been concluded by a better Peace, yet I never heard any body alledge that by any Peace which could have been made, Great Britain would have been indemnified for her vast Expences of Blood and Treasure." This Morning came on at Doctors Com- mons, before the Worshipful Dr. John Bettes- worth, Chancellor of the Diocese of London, the Admissibility of Lady G's recriminate Al- legations, charging his L p with Acts of Adultery with several different Women, some Time before her Ladyship was charged with the like Crime ; when, after a Hearing of four Hours, the Judge was pleased to reject the 15th and 16th Articles, and admit the reft as laid. A Letter from Plymouth, dated the 2d Inst. fays, " The Press here has been very hot, and the Gangs have picked up a great Number of useful Hands ; they have taken all the Men from on board all the homeward- bound Ships which have touched here, except the Captains and Mates; and many Sailors have been brought from the adjacent Country Villages, who had secreted themselves there; so that the Ships here have got near their Complement of Hands on board, and will be ready to sail in a few Days. Many fresh Hands are employed in the Dock- Yard to fit out several Ships which are soon to be put into Commission. The Wasp Sloop of War is arrived from Ireland with im- pressed Men." The Favourite Betsey, Captain Lee, from Barbadoes for London, laden with Sugar, and the last Ship that is to come from thence this Season, is safe arrived off Dover. On Tuesday a Motion was made in the Court of Chancery to restrain a certain Gentleman from felling or carrying away any of the Lead from the Beldy- Hill Lead Mines in Yorkshire, which was ordered accordingly. A Farmer neap Swineshead, in Lincolnshire, having a small Field of high Ground which the late Flood did not reach, but appeared as a little Island in the Midst of a large Lake, a Quantity of Sheep took Refuge thereon, which the Farmer fearing would be starved to Death, employed Men with Boats to fetch them away, and among them picked up above twenty Brace of Hares, which had herded with them. Monday Evening as Mrs. Gardner, of Bell- Alley, Coleman- Street, was endeavouring to get up to the Two Shilling Gallery", at Covent Garden Playhouse, the Crowd was so great that she was thrown down and broke her Thigh. Tuesday the following Convicts were exe- cuted at Tyburn, viz. John Barton, for steal- ing a Gelding ; Bartholomew Langley, for Bes- tiality at Knightibridge; Thomas Knight, Tho- mas Payne, and William Bird, for a Burglary in the House of Mrs. Jeredore in Great Marl- borough- Street; and William Brent, otherwise Brett, for Healing Bank Notes, & c. of upwards of 1900l. Value, the Property of Lady Mayo. Langley, on taking the Sacrament on the Morning before Execution, declared he was in- nocent of the Fact for which he was going to suffer, and persisted in the same just before he was turned off. During the above Execution a large Scaf- fold, whereon were upwards of two hundred Persons, fell down, by which Accident two Men were carried away speechless, and near twenty Persons had their Legs and Arms broke. A large Press Gang attended at the Gallows, and impressed about forty Men. Yesterday the Sessions began at the Old Baily, when 13 Prisoners were tried, three of whom were capitally convicted, viz. Thomas Meekin, for robbing on the Highway and ravishing Su- sannah Mazemore, in a Field near Hoxton; Mark Marks, for robbing Joshua Crowden of his Watch on the Highway in Houndsditch ; and Thomas Hand ( tried upon the Coventry Act) for firing a Pistol loaded with a Brace of Balls, at Joseph Holloway, in his own House, in Story- Street, Tottenham- Court- Road. John Underwood, was ordered for Transportation for 14 Years, for receiving the Plate taken from Mrs. Jeredore, for stealing of which Knight, Bird, and Payne were executed as above; two were call for Transportation, one to be whip- ped, and five acquitted. Died. Tuesday, in the Afternoon, at his House in Pall- Mall, aged Sixty, the Right Hon. John Percival, Lord Lovel and Holland of Enmore in Somersetshire, Vice Admiral of the said County, and Earl of Egmont in Ire- land, one of his Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, and F. R. S. His Lordship is succeeded in Title and Estate by his eldest Son, the Right Hon. John- James, Lord Viscount Percival, born Jan. 29, 1137- 8 ( who is Colo- nel of a Company in the Foot Guards) late Member for Bridgewater. The following is another remarkable Instance of the good Effects of ROWLEY's HERB SNUFF and TOBACCO: Mr. JOHN STRAHAn, Watch- Maker, in Rat- cliff Row, City Road, London, was subject to a Decay of Sight for several Years, until at Length the Use of Glasses, and the Assistance of many skilful Persons proved ineffectual; an Inflamma- tion came on in both Eyes; he was for a long Time incapable of following his Business, and had nothing before him but the melancholy Prospect of becoming blind, when ROWLEY's HERB SNUFF relieved him. He continued the Use of it for about a Year, and can now fee to perform with Ease the nicest Part of the Watch- making Busi- ness without Spectacles. I do aver the above Relation to be true, and " that it is a Fact well known to all my Ac- " quaintance. JOHN STRAHAN." This HERB SNUFF and TOBACCO are sold by Mr. GAMIDge, Bookseller, at Worcester.

The Hallifax Schooner, Captain Glassford, is arrived from Boston, and brings Advice, that the Trial of Captain Preston, on the Indictment preferred against him in consequence of what happened on Oc- casion of the Riot in the Town on the 5th of March last, came on in the Superior Court of Judicature and Court of Assize and General Goal Delivery, on Wednesday the 24th of October, and continued till Tuesday the 30th, when he was fully acquitted. [ Gazette. On Wednesday last Lord Chatham made a Motion respecting the Right of Election, which occasioned many learned and spirited Argu- ments on both Sides; which being finished, the House called for the Question to adjourn, when there appeared 52 for the Adjournment, and 20 against it. On Thursday last Mr. Serjeant Glynn made the following Motion ( agreeably to his Promise) in the Lower Assembly : " That a Committee of this House be ap- " pointed, to enquire into the present Practice " of the Law in Westminster- Hall, particularly " in regard to the Doctrine of Libels, and the " Liberty of the Press." This Motion the learned Serjeant supported, in a very elegant Speech of above one Hour long; wherein he stated the present, with the former Practice of the Courts, in Respect to Libels; complained of the present Mode in spirited, yet respectful Terms ; and warmly insisted, that it was the Intention, in all Matters of Criminality, that affixed the Guilt of the Publisher. He particularly mentioned the Case of Mr. Almon, and strongly complained of the cruel Treatment that Bookseller had met with, whom he repeatedly said was Innocent of the Crime laid to his Charge. " As for my Part, concludes the Serjeant, I am for accusing no particular Person, nor would I wish to be understood upon this Ground; much less am I a Lover of Innovation ; but I would wish, and the Criticalness of the Times forces this Wish from me, that there was a Line of Precision drawn where a Juryman may at one View comprehend his Power. If this was once established, the whole World would then know what was libellous, and what not. Mr. Alderman Oliver seconded the Motion, and said he was for bringing home the Char- ges to particular Persons; and pledged himself to the House, if this Enquiry was agreed upon, to arraign the Conduct of Lord Chief Justice Mansfield. Sir Joseph Mawbey, Bart, followed Mr. Oliver, he talked of secondary Arraignments; and complained greatly of Baron Sm - e's Con- duct in trying the Serjeant at the last Assizes at Guilford. Charles Jenkinson, Esq; in Opposition to the Motion, rose after Sir Joseph ; he said, " He was astonished to find the Gentlemen who supported this Motion, go on such vague and uncertain Grounds. The learned Serjeant ( says he) who made this Motion, confesses he wants to arraign no particular Person; where then is the Use of this Enquiry? It is Enquiry into— what? Into a Matter where no Charge is made out. For Shame! then, Gentlemen, be more ingenuous. If you have any Charges to make against all, or any venerable Judge of the Law, bring it home at once, and let the Persons so accused, have the Freedom of de- fending themselves. As for my Part, I have no Doubt but the learned Judge, traduced by the Gentleman who spoke second in the Debate, will acquit himself with that Candour and Re putation, that is so inseparable to his Cha- racter." Mr. Connell spoke very ably upon Mr. Al- mon's Case, and upon the Doctrines lately held about Juries; and was strongly for the En- quiry. He said, those who are Friends to the noble Judge ought to be for it, that he may come pure out of it. They are not his Friends who oppose it. Mr. Grey Cooper said, he thought there was no Ground for a Charge against the noble Judge, and therefore was against the proposed Enquiry. The Right Hon. George Onflow coincided in Opinion with his Treasury Frinds, and en- tered into the Merits of the Trial at Surry, al- luded to by Sir Joseph Mawbey. Here he praised the Conduct of the Judge; said he sup- ported that Character he always maintained, that of an honest and able Man ; that the Case was a very plain Case, that the Violence of Party would have altered the criminal Laws of the Land, but for the spirited, humane Inter- position of the Bench; and that, as Member for the County, and as a Member of Society, he owed him his particular Thanks for rescuing an innocent Man from the inevitable Destruc- tion that would have otherwise overtaken him. The Hon. Constantine Phipps replied in a very masterly and temperate Manner. He Press was, from the Doctrines laid down about Juries. He likewise shewed the dangerous Si- tuation in which every Bookseller stood, from the cruel and unfortunate Cafe of Mr. Almon, who was a Seller only. And if there was an End of Booksellers, there was an End of all Learning, and the Liberty of the Press. Mr. Alderman Townsend, in Behalf of the Motion, spoke next, and entered warmly into the recent Abuses of the Law in Westminster Hall, in dictating to juries, and explaining away their just Rights and Privileges. He said, from the Treatment of this Motion, by the Members in Opposition, they seemed to look upon it as frivolous ; but that for his Part there was nothing he so much dreaded as a Corruption in the legal Magistrates, as the Constitution could not long survive that Era. He then came more home to the Subject; said he was afraid there was too great a Vicinity between the Palace of St. James's and the Hall of Westminster; that he had good Grounds for his Fears, for that he was well informed that a certain great Judge, not long dead, had been tampered with; that very much to that great Man's Honour and Memory, he treated such Offers with Contempt ; and, not many Hours before his Death, sent back a Letter unopened, because he suspected the Contents not to be honourable. From such Facts ( continues he) what have we not to dread ? Is it not Time, full Time, to come at least to an Enquiry, and establish that Part of the Law, which from its present Uncertainty gives that Latitude to its Magistrates, upon more fixed, precise, and un- alterable Grounds. Sir G. Saville spoke in a very able and spi- rited Manner, ana was for the Enquiry. Sir G. Elliot was against the Enquiry. Mr. Burke said, the Prosecution of Mr. Al- mon was a malicious Prosecution. He stated the Manner in which he had been selected, brought first to Trial, & c. & c. As a Friend to the noble Judge he was for the Enquiry, and he hoped all his Friends would be for it. Mr. Wedderburn spoke exceedingly well on the same Side. He said Juries were the proper Judges of the whole Matter in Issue ; that they stood between the Accusation and the Accused ; and it is by them, and them only, that the Accused can be handed up to Punishment. The Debates lasted till Half an Hour past Twelve o'Clock, when every Thing that could be said being already exhausted, the united Cry of The Question ! the Question ! induced the Speaker to follow their Advice. The House be- ing accordingly cleared, they divided ; against the Motion 184, for it 76. It is said that an Impeachment of Lord Mans- field will take Place soon after the Holidays. It is currently reported that Sir Edw. Hawke will soon resign as First Lord of the Admiralty Board, and that his Resignation will be ac- companied by a Protest of a very alarming Nature. A Resolution has passed, that 378,7521. shall be granted for the ordinary Supply of the Navy for 1771. A Resolution has also passed, to grant 423,7471. for defraying the Charge of Buildings and Rebulidings, and Repairs of Ships for 1771. Yesterday the Augmentation of the Seamen was taken into Consideration, when 7000 Men extra was voted besides the annual Number of 17,000. Yesterday Lord Barrington made a Motion for augmenting the Army to 23,000 Men and upwards. A Lift of all the commissioned Officers, now serving in the Militia of this Kingdom, Hating the Counties in which they serve, and their re- spective Ranks, is soon to be laid before a great Assembly. An Account of the Number of Cattle im- ported into Great Britain from Ireland since the 10th of October 1766, distinguished the several Sorts imported in each Year, is also to be laid before the same. An Account of the Quantity of Tallow im- ported and exported from the 1st of January 1769, distinguishing the Foreign from the Irish, is likewise to be brought in. A Bill for imposing a heavy Duty on French Plate, manufactured in this Kingdom, is pre- paring to be brought into Parliament. An additional Tax will certainly be laid this Winter on all Kinds of manufactured Goods imported from Abroad. It is said, that a Motion is intended to be made for bringing a great Magistrate to the Bar of a certain House, for refusing to back the Press- Warrants. The Seamen now impressed in the City, are immediately put on board a Tender, without being carried before a Magistrate, left they should be discharged. It is confidently said, that the Parliament of Ireland will be convened for the Dispatch of Business early in the Month of January. Last Night, about Eleven o'Clock, a Mes- senger with Dispatches, set out from the Secre- tary of State's Office in Cleveland- Row, by the Way of Germany, to the Hon. Mr. Mur- ray, his Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople. The last Dispatches from the French Court breath nothing but Professions of an ardent Desire for Peace. The Merchants of Seville were early so sus- picious of a Rupture with Great Britain, that they gathered all their Fruit so green, that it is feared the Orange Fanciers will be disap- pointed this Year in the Flavour of their favou- rite Potation. House, that an additional Shilling upon the Land would affect only the landed Gentlemen, and that if the Storm should happily blow over, he assured the House it should again be repealed. Col. Barre declared, the People had no Right to receive an additional Burthen upon an Un- certainty. If it was to be a War, it was Time enough then, and that there was no Person in that House but would chearfully lend all their Assistance to prosecute the War with Vigour. It is said that the Ministry having relaxed a little in their Demands of Restitution from the Court of Spain for the late Infraction of the last Treaty, the Spanish Court have, on their Part, given up some Points, which before they pe- remptorily refused to acquiesce in. We are informed that the final Resolves of the Ministry respecting the late Violation of Treaty on the Part of the Court of Spain are now 011 their Way to Madrid, so that it will be some Time before the Event of Peace or War can be known with Certainty. The Land- Tax Bill will not be passed till the Return of a Messenger from Madrid, who expected in a few Days. A great Man in the Administration observed in a large Company, this Week, that, as it would be very difficult to find any Thing on which a new Tax could be laid, and the Peo- ple are fond of Lotteries, he thought a great deal of Money might be raised, without over- burthening the Subjects, if a Plan of Tontines was adopted similar to those at Paris; and that he would be the first to move in Parliament for it. By the Returns of the Stamp- Office it ap- pears that, during the present Year, there have been stamped and sold Nine Million Six Hun- dred and Twenty Thousand Five Hundred and Twenty News- Papers, all printed within the Bills of Mortality ; so that this single Ar- ticle for Stamps, at One Penny for each News- paper, amounts to upwards of Forty Thousand Pounds per Ann. besides the Duties on the Ad- vertsements in each, which, upon a moderate Computation, amounts to above Twenty Thou- sand Pounds annually. And this Revenue to the Government is most probably double, if we take in this Calculation all the other News- papers which are published in the other Parts of the Kingdom: So that the whole annual Income arising from the Duty upon News- Papers, may be computed at One Hundred and Twenty Thousand Pounds. The following Story has lately afforded much Diversion at the West- End of the Town.--------- A Nobleman, not a hundred Miles from White- hall, some Years past debauched an Officer's Widow, and kept her privately till he had three Children by her; her Health then de- clining, and he being in a new Amour, sent her and her Children to the South of France, where he remitted her a trifling Annuity; but marry- ing some Time after, he totally neglected her. The unhappy Creature, by some Means or other, returned to England a few Months since, and wrote to him several Times, without receiving any Answer: At length she sent an humble Pe- tition, setting forth her Distress and that of his Children ; but he denied ever having known any such Person. Thus driven to the last Re- source, she waited on a Gentleman ( Col. W.) who used frequently to come with his Lordship to visit her: To him she told her Story. This Gentleman, who is an Honour to Human Na- ture, bid her leave the Affair to him: He soon after invited several Gentlemen of Distinction and his Lordship to Dinner: When the Com pany were seated, he begged Leave to introduce some Relations of his to them, and first brought in the Children, and then the Mother; when his Lordship, to his Mortification, was obliged to own his Knowledge of both ; and, to prevent the Reproaches of the Company, promised to make a handsome Settlement on her; a Lawyer was accordingly sent for, and they saw it executed on the Spot. Thursday 18 Prisoners were tried at the Old Bailey, two of whom were capitally convicted, viz. John Clack and John Joseph Defoe, alias Brown, alias Smith, for robbing Alexander Fordyce, Esq; on the Highway in the Road to Roehampton ; Three were call for Transpor- tation, seven for Petty Larceny, and six acquitted.

Lichfield Close, JOHN ALCOCK, Nov. 28th, 1770. Doctor in Music. THURSDAY'S POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) Extract of a Letter from a Gentleman at Calcutta to his Friend at Glasgow, May 16, 1770. IT is certain that Cossim Aly Kawn is in Motion for Bengal, and that as soon as he crosses the Jumna there will be two Brigades sent to meet him. The French are said to have joined with SowjaDowla, which I believe really to be the Case, by the Pains taken in enticeing away our European Soldiers. The Country is in a deplorable Situation ; you will no doubt be surprised and astonished, when I inform you that Provisions are so scarce here, that Parents come in to us offering their Chil- dren for a Handful of Rice, and, if they can- not get that, they are glad to get rid of them on any Account." LONDON, Tuesday, Dec. 11. We are credibly informed that Lord Bute has left the Court of Madrid, and it now at Paris, where he has frequent Conferences with Lord Harcourt, the English Ambassador there. The last Messenger which was dispatched to the Court of Madrid is expected from thence the latter End of this Week. We are assured, that his Excellency the French Ambassador is indefatigable in his En- deavours to bring about a Reconciliation be- tween the Courts of Great Britain and Spain, Scarce a Day passing without a Conference be- tween him and some of our Ministers on that subject. The French and Spanish Ambassadors are what is vulgarly called Hand and Glove, that Is, they embrace every Opportunity of visiting each other ; and seem perfectly to understand, and act according to the Inclinations of their respective Courts. last in the House of C-- s, Lord Mansfield, on Friday, gave Notice to the House of L— ds, that he should lay some important Matter before their Lordships on Monday next [ Yesterday]. The House was accordingly summoned, and great were the Expectations of every body. Nothing less than the supposed ENQUIRY, which the Ministry had, so unfriendly to his Lordship, stifled in the House of Commons, was now conceived to be the Object of his Lordship's Wishes, in the House of Lords. But alas! when Monday came, and the supreme Court of Judicature of this Country was big and filled with great Expectation,— what did he do?— He made a poor, paltry, needless De- claration,— that he had left a Paper with the Clerk of the House ;— that the Paper contained the Judgment of the Court of King's Bench, in the Case of the King against Woodfall; and that their Lordships might read it, and take Copies of it if they pleased. Lord Camden asked, if Lord Mansfield meant to have this Paper entered in the Journals. To which Lord Mansfield answered, No ! no .' only to leave it with the Clerk. After a few Minutes Silence, the Duke of Manchester flood up. His Grace descanted upon the Complaints of the People ; the Con- tempt with which those Complaints had been treated. And then proceeded to describe the alarming State of Affairs Abroad, and our own weak State at Home. So thoroughly was the; Service disliked, he said, that ask the Officers of the Army, and they will acknowledge they cannot get Recruits. Then as to the Navy, notwithstanding all that has been said, such is the Condition of the Navy Here Lord Gower interrupted his Grace, and said the State of the Kingdom ought not to be made known ; and the Duke of Grafton roared out, Clear the House ! clear the House ! But the Duke of Manchester stood up again, and said the noble Lord should not have interrupted him, unless he had been disorderly ; that the King's Ministers were afraid their Conduct should be made known to the People, and Here Lord Gower interrupted his Grace a second Time; and moved, that the standing Order relative to Strangers might be read. Then Lord Chatham stood up ; but the Duke of Grafton still kept crying out, Clear the House ! Clear the House ! and the Lords Den- bigh ' and Marchmont quitting their Places to assist the Officers in driving out not only all Strangers, but even every Member of the House of Commons; increased the Clamour, and threw the whole Assembly into an Uproar and Confusion. Lord Chatham was up three Mi- nutes, attempting to speak ; but such was the Confusion, he could not be heard. At length he sent the Duke of Richmond to the Speaker, to let him know, " He wanted to speak to the " Construction of the standing Order;" but the Lords would not hear him : Upon which he said, What! Not hear me ? and immediately left the House. The Dukes of Northumberland, Richmond, Portland, Devonshire, Manchester, & c. with Lord Rockingham, and all the Minority Lords present, directly followed his Lordship. The House then broke up. Several of the Lords went afterwards into the House of Commons, but as the Members of that House had been turned out of their Lord- ship's House, it was there moved, that they should be ordered to depart; and they departed accordingly. We are assured, notwithstanding all Reports to the contrary, that the passing of the De- faulter's Accounts is to be postponed till the Thane's Son is an Auditor of the Imprest, as the Perquisites on so vail a Sum are an Object of the Favourite's Attention. The Land Tax is settled at 4s. in the Pound, for one Year only. Lond. E- v. Post. Yesterday the Bill for the Encouragement of Seamen, and the Bill to amend the Act of the 9th of his present Majesty, for the general Quiet of the Subject against all Presences of Concealment, were read in the Upper Room a first Time. It is said the D — of G—— r kindly offered himself to a Great Personage to visit some of the principal Members in the present contending Parties, and to endeavour if possible to bring about a Reconciliation; but his good Inten- tions were soon foiled. It is said that his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester has declined the supreme Com mand of the Army out of Modesty, as think- ing himself too young and unexperienced for so important a Pott. The whole Army on the British Establish- ment, we arc assured, is to be augmented, ex- cept the Foot Guards and Gen. Conway's Regi- ment of Blues. It is said that ten thousand Seamen will be moved for in a few Days. It is imagined the Marines at Plymouth will be ordered to do Duty on board his Majesty's Ships of War. On Saturday several Military Officers on the Half- Pay List, had Notice sent them to be in Readiness to enter on actual Service. We are informed from Birmingham, that the Manufacturers there work Night and Day to compleat the large Orders they have received from America. According to recent Letters from Paris, it is rumoured, that, in consequence of a Treaty now on the Tapis between the Courts of Ver- sailles and Turin, the Island of Corsica will be ceded to his Sardinian Majesty. We are assured a Parliamentary Enquiry will speedily be made into the State of the Military Establishment of the East India Company. The Proceedings of the above Company, with Respect to the enlisting Men for their Service, very good Politicians have observed, should receive many Restrictions. They should be confined to the enlisting Catholics in Ireland ; Natives of the Scottish Highlands; Protestants from Germany and Swisserland. It is of infinite public Concern, the exhausting the recruiting Service in the Metropolis, merely for the East- India Company ; who seem now no longer to deserve their original Appellation of the United Company of Merchants trading to India, but conquering1 in India. Conquest is become their Trade; Nabobs, Kingdoms, and Provinces, are now their Merchandise, their staple Com- modities ; their Exports are Regiments of Re- cruits, Magazines of Ammunition, and Trains of Artillery; and their Imports, the Revenues of the Sovereigns of Asia. It is now in Agitation to send a Fleet to the East Indies, which, it is thought, will sail in January next. A Draught of 200 Shipwrights is made from Deptford Yard, in order the better to accele- rate the Men of War fitting out at Portsmouth. Letter from Bologn in France, Dec. 4. " It is currently reported that the French Ambassador has sent Orders to his Correspon- dent at Calais, not to send away any more of his Baggage till further Orders. The Remain- der of his Wine was stopped there. It is there- fore expected that he will be as good as his Word when he left Calais, that he would not stay long in England. " The Motions of the Troops in general, on the Sea Coasts, are not looked upon as pa- cific Tokens. The Garrisons of the Island of Corsica are relieving by twenty- two Batralions of French Troops; those who come from that Island have not Half their Complement of Men. The Sickness has destroyed more than their Enemies. Several Regiments are going to Bre- taigne, on the Coast." It is not a little remarkable, that the new Half- pence, which wire issued at the Tower but last Week, are already counterfeited : The bad are neither so broad nor so thick as the real ones, and are likewise greatly deficient in Weight; upon the Head of Britannia, in the Counterfeit, there is a Coronet, but none upon the Original; and the Sprig in her Hand is not near so fine. They may be perceived at first Sight, by the Sandiness of the Head, and by the Smallness of the Neck. The Miseries and Hardships which arise from the Custom of lmpressing are innumerable, and shew themselves every Hour in the Day. On Wednesday last as a poor Man, a Carpenter, was coming to Town from Uxbridge, with his Wife and three Children, to enquire for Work, he was seized in Oxford Road by a Press- Gang, and carried off without being permitted even to speak to his Wife. He begged of them only to grant him Leave to give her a few Shillings, which he had in his Pocket, for the Support of herself and Children, to return to their Parish ; but this the merciless Crew refused, and carried him off. The poor Woman, without a Friend or a Penny, applied to the Overseers of several Parishes for a Shilling or two, to bear her Ex- pences Home; but all the virtuous Gentry threatened to confine her and her Brats for Vagrants. She lay in the Street all Night, and was the next Day humanely relieved by a Gen- tleman, who sent her and the Children Home in a Waggon to Uxbridge. A Correspondent from Oldham, in Lan- cashire, has sent us the following Story as a real Fact: — " About three or four Days ago, a Man and a Woman came to this Place to be married, being the preceding Day asked out; as they were waiting at the Inn for the Curate, strong Symptoms of Labour appeared on the intended Bride, which caused some Demur in her Paramour, who swore if the Marriage was not celebrated that Day, it never should; upon which a stout young Fellow, who had attended them as a Companion, took the Girl up in his Arms, and carried her to the Church, and after the Ceremony was over, reconducted her to the Inn, where, in a few Minutes, she was happily delivered of a fine Boy." Letter from a Gentleman in Lincolnshire, Dec. 1. " The late Floods have ruined this County ; no Wheat can be sown, as the Rains are con- tinually falling.— Some Nottinghamshire Gen- tlemen, about three Years ago, obtained an Act of Parliament to embank the River Trent on the West, by which Improvement, as it was then called, the County has been laid under Water; and the Lordships of Torksey and Tenton overflowed up to Lincoln, also the Lordships and Towns on the East Side of the Trent, for thirty Miles ; Martin, Lea, Gains- borough, Morton, Walkerith, Stockwith, Wiles- worth, East Ferry, Butterwick, Gunness, Flix- borough Stather, and quite away to the Ald borough Hills, at the Fall of the Trent into the Humber.— The poor Inhabitants are fled, some drowned; their Cattle lost, and their Hay and Corn Ricks standing half in Water, On the West Side of the Trent the Bank of Bawtry River broke, and overflowed all the low Grounds in the Isle of Axholm, and all the Level of Hatfield Chace for many thousand Acres, from Crowle to Hatfield, on the Road to Doncaster; and they now go in Boats over that great Level from Crowle to Thorn Market, to the Distress of many, nay hundreds of Fa- milies, as there are no Hopes of the Breaches being repaired upon those Rivers, nor of the Waters getting off, for many Months " On Saturday the Sessions ended' at the Old Bailey, when four Prisoners were tried ( one of whom was George Newton, for the Murder of George Atkinson); and they were all acquitted. At this Sessions sixty Prisoners have been tried, five of whom received Sentence of Death, one to be transported for fourteen Years, four- teen for seven Years, sixteen to be whipped, and two fined and imprisoned.

To the PRINTER. SIR, AS there is no Character in Nature more re- spectable than that of a Clergyman who per- severes in doing pious and benevolent Act of Cha- rity; and who, by his Example and Precepts, en- deavours to improve the Morals, of Mankind in general: There is, on the contrary, nothing so despicable and indecent as a Man in Holy Orders, who is openly guilty of Vice and Immorality. I have a Regard and Esteem for the Clergy in ge- neral, and it hurts me when I see one of their Or- der despised for his Profligacy.. We have at pre- sent a most flagrant Instance of this irreverent Be- haviour in the Chaplain of a Man of War, lately sent down to his Ship from London, who is be- come the Jest and Ridicule of every one. I do not mean to aggravate his Vices, but I will beg Leave to trouble you with only a single Instance of his Gallantly. A few Days ago he debauched the Daughter of a very decent respectable poor Man in this Neighbourhood; but, not content with that, he carried her on board the Ship he belongs to, and keeps her publicly: He calls her, in the familiar Phrase of a common Tar, his Wife, and is so exceedingly uxorious, that he often ventures off to his dearest Consort in a stormy Night, at the Risque of his Life and the Lives of the Boat's Crew. Imagine, Mr. Printer, the Distress the poor Girl's Parents must be in for the Loss of their darling Child. I am sorry to tell you, that the Man who has committed this base Act, was a zealous S- pp---- r of the B- ll of R---- ts. If you have any Regard for Morality, you will give this Letter an early Place, in your Paper; perhaps the young Man may read it ( for it is notoriously known he can read) and Shame may induce him to alter his Conduct : But if, on the Publication of this, he shews no Signs of Contrition and Repentance, I shall enclose one hundred or more Certificates, properly attested, to the Bishop of London, who, I make no Doubt, will then pre- vent him from continuing to corrupt the Morals of his Majesty's Seamen in the Capacity of a Parson.

IF there be any yet afflicted with this Disor- der, who have not tried the Water- Deck, whether from Inattention, or from the supposed Discredit of ad- vertised Medicines ( though when the Auther is known; and capable, that ought to cease) it may be proper to remind them that this is the season for a perfect Cure. The Certainty of Effects, even in the most confirmed Ca- ses, are sufficiently known, from those of Mr. Wilson; Mrs. Garne, Sir Roger Twynsden, and many more, and its Innocence is such, that Infants take it in a proper dose. There are many other Persons of Distinction, in whole Faces the good Effect of this Medicine may be seen ; though it were ill to revive the Memory of a past Disorder, by mentioning their Names: This may be said with Truth and Safety, None need fear a Cure from it because they have taken other Things in vain.

BEAUME de VIE, By the KING's Patent. THE most general and efficacious Medicine extant, particularly in the following Cases; in Bilious Com- plaints no Remedy so certain, for it immediately corrects and carries off the offending Matter : It is indeed pecu- liarly adapted to the Stomach and Bowels.

We also confidently add, that the balsamic, invigorating Powers of this Balsam, have given it the highest Credit in impaired Constitutions, in the Decline of Age, and in Agues, even where the Bark has failed.
