THURSDAY, January 10, 1771. No. 4006. 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 inferred in other Country Papers before the Saturday following. SATURDAY'S POST. AMERICA. Philadelphia, November 18. YESTERDAY and this Day, arrived here two Ships from Honduras and Cuba, where they went for Mahogany, but were obliged to return with- out it, the Spaniards having driven the Cutters from both Places, and threatened to sink them if they offered to approach the Harbour. COUNTRY NEWS. Bristol, Jan. 3. A few Days since the fol- lowing melancholy Accident happened at a Village near Tregony, in Cornwall ; one Ri- chard Michael, a Farmer, coming Home late at Night, drunk, from a neighbouring Ale- house, took up a loaded Gun, which imme- diately went off and killed his Wife. Gloucester, Jan. 3. Last Tuesday Night, about Eight o'Clock, a melancholy Accident happened at the sea, about three Miles below this City, where five Fishermen, belonging to Mr. Darke of this Place, were unhappily over- set by the Violence of the Wind, in crossing the Severn, and every Soul perished. LONDON, Thursday, Jan. 3. We are told that, at a Meeting of a Great Assembly, immediately after the Recess, a ce- lebrated Chief Justice is determined to make a regular Motion for an Enquiry into his own Conduct, to point out the Power of Juries to its full Extent, and to throw such legal Lights upon the Spirit of Our Constitution, as will be highly serviceable to the Community. We are also told, that Government has a Design of granting Salaries to all the American Governors, to render them independent of the Assemblies. They have already begun with the Governor of Massachusetts Bay, and it is expected will immediately proceed to the same Regulation with respect to the other Colonies. They write from Paris, that there is no Foundation for the Report of the French Mi- nistry having the least Design of breaking with the British Court, but that, on the contrary, they are earnestly endeavouring to bring about a Reconciliation between England and Spain, France being in no Condition to assist the latter in case of Rupture with the English. The Revolution lately brought about in the French Ministry, is not so much the Effect of any Négociations with Respect to Peace or War, as the Consequence of a long and invete- rate Pique between the two Principals in the Lite and present Ministry. The Duke d'Ai- guillon has for some Time past been prosecuted with great Spirit by the Friends of Liberty and Mr. Chalotais, in Return for the cruel Oppres- sionsinflicted by him upon that worthy Gen- tleman. This Prosecution the Duke de Choi- seul, to his great Honour, is known to have favoured strongly. Accordingly Matters went on very heavily against the Duke d'Aiguillon, who having unfortunately the wrong Side of the Question, had no other Means of warding off the Blow, but by having Recourse to the Influence of Madam Barre. The first visible Effect of his Application was the procuring an infamous Order from the King, to stop all the Proceedings of the Parliament. These being justly exasperated at such an unjust Violation of their Right, in a Matter which called out for Redress and Equity, presented Remonstrance upon Remonstrance to his Majesty, praying that they might be permitted to proceed. But the Influence of the Lady still prevailing, the Dispute grew every Day more obstinate, info- much at that last it became necessary for both Parties, that one or other of them should fall. The Duke de Choiseul's good Intentions, tho' assisted by the Power of all the Parliaments, and every good Man in France, could not gain the Ascendant. The Lady's Charms still pre- vailed; and, to make her Triumph more com- plete, the Duke d'Aiguillon was appointed Minister, in the room of his disgraced but vir- tuous Adversary the Duke de Choiseul. Thus, from being at first only an Auxiliary in the Cause, Madam Barre at least became a Princi- pal; but whether her Power will continue long, or there be a Possibility that even Kings themselves may sometimes be brought to see, Time, with the present universal Fermenta- tions in France, is the only Criterion to shew. A Correspondent, however, assures us that the late Revolution in the French Ministry is of a pacific Tendency, and was actually affected by English Gold. A Correspondent says, that should Great Britain take as much Advantage of the bad Situation of the French, at this Time, as that proud Court did of the poor Corsicans, it is more than probable that Kingdom would be again in the Hands of the English, or at least reduced to as narrow Limits at in the Reign of Edward III. A Morning Paper has the following Article, which was received a few Days since by a cer- tain Great Man. [ L- d M-- sf— d.] " My Lord, " A Word before the Blow, as the Lighten- ing before the Thunder. Beware how you make us desperate by causing your Doctrines to be approved by the worthless Mercenaries in both Houses. Remember, I forewarn you: It is a Subject which we will be seen, heard, and Buckingham Gale, FELT ON." August the 3d, 1628. It is said there are considerable Subscriptions already paid to the Bill of Rights, for the Pur- pose of trying the Land Tax Affair, & c. with the Commissioners for Middlesex. The manufacturing of Iron from Pit- Coal ( which some eminent Gentlemen some Time since obtained Letters Patent for) answers beyond Expectation. Above one hundred thousand Pounds Sterling, has been, for Years past, re- mitted to Sweden for Swedish Iron, till this most useful Invention was practised in Great Britain. The constant Drain of Cash from this Nation to Sweden, by the above Means, will be totally stopt. Last Monday Mr. Alderman Wilkes attended the Committee at Guildhall, for entering Sea- men on the City's Bounty, when exactly 45 able Seamen entered into his Majesty's Service. We hear that at Liverpool 1000 Men have been raised for his Majesty's Fleet. Bamber Gascoyne, Esq; was on the 26th of last Month returned Member for the Borough of Weobley, in the room of the Right Hon. Henry Frederick Thynne, Esq; who is appointed Joint Postmaster General. A Wit was asked the other Day, if we should have a War— no, cried he, I believe not— yet we shall have no Peace if there is not a War. In the Beginning of last- Year one James Bromley, a Linen and Cotton Dyer in Man- chester, one who was excellently well skilled in his Profession, being unable to pay all his Debts, or to compound with his Creditors, and being threatened to be sent to Prison, was applied to by one to engage himself to go over to France, to manage at Rouen a new- established Dye- House at that Place. The poor distressed Man embraced the Offer; Assurance of 25s. a Week was given him at the least, and he had six Guineas in Hand to carry him to Dieppe. He was sent into the Service of Messrs. Morris, Hope, and Holker, and they entered into an Agreement in Writing with him for seven Years, engaging him not only to superintend their Work, but to bring up and teach Apprentices the same Mystery. His Wages were settled at a Guinea and a Half per Week, and, in Case of his Death, twenty Guineas were to be paid to defray the Expense of his Family's Return to England. After a four Months Stay at Rouen, a Desire of breathing his native Air made him risque every Thing; he made his Escape from France, and returned to England. Being still afraid of his Creditors, instead of Manchester, he went to work at his own Business in Moor fields, and could earn 36s. a Week, which is a Proof of his being a valuable Hand. But his foreign Mailers soon found him out, and gave Information to his Creditors, who arrested him, threw him into the King's Bench, where he now lies almost in a starving Condition. His Wife and four Children are gone back to Manchester, either to become a Burthen to their Friends, or probably the Parish. Letter from Philadelphia, dated Nov. 15. " Friday last arrived here the Ship Hope, Capt. John Robinson, from the Bay of Hon- duras, which he left the 25th of September, by whom we learn, that a Number of Spaniards having been detected in enticing the Negroes to run away, were seized by Way of Reprisal, and put to work on board an English Vessel." The David and Elizabeth, Clancy, from Genoa to the Coast of Valencia, is totally lost near Port Mahon; the Crew and Passengers perished. On Monday Night last two Gallies, with their Gangs on board, attempted to press the Bargemen of a West- Country Barge at Queen- hithe, who made such a stout Resistance, that they sheered off and brought five more Gallies to their Assistance; the Bargemen gave these likewise a hearty Drubbing; and though at last they were obliged to leave their Barge, they had not one Man impressed. His Grace the Duke of Bedford, besides for- giving his Tenants a Year's Rent has advanced considerable Sums of Money, without Interest, to enable them to purchase Stock and Imple- ments in Husbandry, which were destroyed by the late great Floods. We are informed a Man was committed to Hertford Gaol a few Days since, for shooting at a young Gentleman, Son of the Steward of a noble Lord, with an Intent to murder him. It seems the Ball entered his Cheek, and came out through his Mouth, so it is thought the Wound is not mortal. The Fact was perpetrated on premeditated Malice, the Youth having in- formed against the Criminal for Poaching. It is said that Mr. Laforest, Master of the London Tavern, in Bishopsgate Street, pays to the Proprietors for the Use of the House, Fur- niture, China, Plate, and Linen, two thousand five hundred Pounds a Year; so that he must appropriate near seven Pounds a Day to this Purpose, before he can apply a Shilling to the Uses of his Family. It is also mentioned, as a Proof of our pre- sent great Distresses, that at the above Tavern the mere Article of Vegetables only amounts upon an Average to twelve Pounds a Day. A few Days ago the Lady of Sir Walter Compton, of Hartpury, in the County of Glou- cester, Bart was safely delivered of a Son, to the great Joy of his Family. A few Days since an Honest Hibernian went to a Lottery- Office to insure a Ticket already a Blank, that it might not come up so a second Time. Yesterday Morning the four following Con- victs were executed at Tyburn pursuant to their Sentence, viz. Mark Marks, for a Street Rob- bery in Whitechapel; John Clarke, and John Joseph Defoe, for robbing Alexander Fordyce, Esq; on the Highway, of a Gold Watch and some Money ; and Thomas Hand, for firing a loaded Pistol at Joseph Holloway, whereby he was wounded in the Hand. They all behaved with extreme Penitence ; and Mark Marks, the Jew, denied the Crime for which he suffered to the last Moment of his Life. John Joseph Defoe is said to be Grandson to Daniel Defoe, Author of the True- born Englishman, Robin- son Crusoe, Colonel Jack, and other ingenious Pieces. This Morning Capt. Ferguson, for the Mur- der of his Cabin Boy, was executed at Execu- tion Dock, Wapping, pursuant to his Sen- tence. He was a young Man, about twenty- six Years of Age, and behaved with great Pe- nitence. After hanging the usual Time, his Body was put in Chains in the Marshes near Blackwall. The poor Man was obliged to wait a full Hour in the Press Yard before a Hal- ter could be procured. Married.] At Sutton St. Michael, Hereford- shire, Mr. George Bennett, to Mils Susannah Bree Parker, of Bewsall, in Warwickshire ; possessed of a Fortune of 5o, oool. Died.] At Mr. Davies's of the Knapp, in the Parish of Bridge, Herefordshire, Mr. Martin Bird, who formerly kept a, Tavern at Richmond, in Surry. About a Week before his Death he ordered a Coffin and Shroud to be made ; and likewise a certain Number of Hatbands to be bought for those that were to attend his Funeral. He desired every Thing might be brought for him to see, and after examining the Coffin Lid he lay down in his Bed, and died about ten or twelve Hours after. - Mr. John Ashmeade, sen. an eminent Mercer of Gloucester.

CHOISEUIL is disgraced, and Barre is victorious. His Maladministration has drained the Royal Trea- sury. The Army are 9 Months in Arrears. Many Regiments have not been clothed these three Years. And the Na- tional Troops, by the last Returns just made, have more than Thirty- fix Thousand Non- effectives. The German Battalions, the Swiss Guards, the Irish Brigades, the Italian Corps, are impatient to quit the French Service, hav- ing neither Pay nor Clothing. These Troops are the Flower of the French Army. For these last twelve Months the only Recruits sent to the different Regiments are Savoyards, the Canaille of the Streets of Paris; and their Fleet at Brest is crammed, not manned, with the Miserables of the distant provincial Vil- lages, that are drove in Flocks to the different Sea- port Towns. The Fortifications of France are neglected, ruinous, and not defensible. Their Trains of Brass Cannon, it is certain, are numerous, but without Carriages, Platforms, and Ammunition, are useless, and an easy Conquest for a foreign Enemy. Exclusive of Foreigners, in the French Service, there are not Sixty Thousand Men fit for Service ; and those so widely dispersed, that in six Weeks scarce Twenty Thousand could be collected. The best Battalion of Infantry, the Grenadiers, are now employed in Hiding the Sparks of Liberty that begin to blaze out in Normandy and Britanny." Extract of another Letter from Paris, Dec. 31. " The Spirit of Discontent, not to say Re- volt, which the People in general manifested, on the News that the Duke d'Aiguillon had succeeded M. de Choiseul, hath determined the former to excuse himself to the King with Respect to the Nomination he intended to make in his Favour; all his Friends have partly pleaded the same Excuse, namely, the Fear of an impending Storm. In short, the Chancellor Maupoux, Son of the Keeper of the Seals, both averred Enemies of the Parliament of Paris, of which they have been successively the Chiefs, does the Duty at present. All Dispatches are sent to the respective Departments, the head Clerks of each of which go to open and read them to the King in Person, assisted by M. Maupoux ; so that the King is still his own Prime Minister. It would be happy for the People if he would continue so ; he would then be enabled to know the State of his Kingdom, the Wants of his People, the Injustice of his Ministers; and would thereby confirm the At- tachment which his Subjects have avowed to him, fully convinced of his Tenderness to them. There is not yet any Person named to fill the Vacancies of the Exiles." LONDON, Saturday, Jan. 5. The Parliament will meet again for the Dispatch of Business on Wednesday next. The H of C will not be desired to enter into the Accounts of Lord Holland, as Pay- master of the Forces; but, it is said, the Auditor and his Clerks will be requested to at- tend, in order to Answer such Questions, as may be asked of them relating to those Ac- counts. The Affairs of America are to have the first Place among those which will be laid before Parliament; and the Irish Business, we hear, is to be postponed for some Time. A late Letter from Boston says, " The Inha- bitants here assure themselves Great Britain must soon be obliged to comply with their De- mands, as, in case of a War, she will have Employment sufficient for her Soldiers without sending them to massacre their fellow Subjects." It is reported that Lord W h has been again requested to take some Part in the Administration, but he still excuses himself. The great Number of Promotions both by Sea and Land, which our present warlike Pre- parations rendered necessary, put it in the Power of the Ministry to gain a great Number of Friends by the Distribution of Commissions, Contracts, & c. This accounts very well for the Increase of the Ministers Majority in both Houses. It is assured, Lord Chatham has within these few Days received the most pressing Invitation from a certain Quarter, some Affairs now on the Carpet absolutely requiring his Assistance. A Report having been industriously circu- lated, and artfully continued, that the Friends of the late Right Hon. George Grenville were coming into Place; it becomes necessary to assure the Public, that the Report has no Foun- dation in Truth ; and, in particular, the noble Lord ( Lord Lytelton) has made a Declaration to his Friends, which is much to his Honour, that he will neither join this Ministry, nor any other, who will not restore to the People their violated Rights. The precipitate Journey of a well- known Personage, dignified in Public with the polite Appellation of a Cub, to Paris, it, we are told, to settle some little Demands and Dou- ceurs On him, which were left unsatisfied when he made that famous Tour from Paris to Ve- nice with an Opera Girl. This celebrated Mi- gration obliged him to draw on his indulgent Father ( the present grand Defaulter) for up- wards of Thirty- two Thousand Pounds Ster- ling, in one Bill, which was honourably and instantly paid at Sight, without the least Mur- mur or Discontent, by the over- fond Parent. We hear, from very good Authority that the Court of Spain has agreed to the particular Specification insisted on by England, of making a public Example of the Governor of Buenos Ayres. It is said that the above- mentioned Gover- nor urges, in Defence of his Conduct in ma- king himself Mailer of Falkland's Island, that Report was at that Time current in those Parts, that the English were meditating a Design to retake Possession of the Havannah, and that he was determined to be before- hand with them. Advice is said to be received, that the King of Portugal has at last consented to redress the Grievances of the British Merchants. The following is a Specimen of the Farce played by the Patriots at Boston : — A large Chest was sent from Bristol full of Millinery Goods; the Patriots, both Male and Female, solemnly protested against admitting such unnecessary Gewgaws among them: However, the Chest, among other Articles, was stored till it could be sent back again.— In due Time it was sent back, and great Parade was observed in carrying it thro' the Streets, and putting it on board the Vessel for Old England. — To Old England it came, when behold, what went over in the Form of Caps, Handkerchiefs, Russles, & c. returned in the Substance of Hams and Gammons of Bacon. Double the Sum is allowed to every Recruit- ing Officer on the present Occasion, to what has heretofore been given, so that the Service goes on with greater Alacrity than ever was known in the different Parts of the Kingdom. The Commissioners for victualling his Majesty's Navy have contracted for 1000 Quarters of Flour, 500 Tons of Biscuit, and 250 Tons of Pease, for the Use of the Men of War at Portsmouth and Plymouth. It is said that the Government has already contracted for 25,000 Barrels of Irish Beef and Pork. All the Ships sitting out at the different Yards are to be completed by the 18th of the next Month, and then to depart immediately for their respective Destinations. There are now eight Gangs of Shipwrights, & c. employed on board the Royal William Man of War, to get her ready for Commission. Yesterday a Detachment from the Royal Re- giment of Artillery marched for Portsmouth, to embark there for Gibraltar arid Minorca, to complete the different Companies at those Places. Yesterday Orders were sent to Portsmouth, for several Mooring Chains to be shipped for Gib- raltar and Port Mahon, for the Use of his Majesty's Ships of War. The Worcester Man of War it ordered into Commission, and the Command of her given to Capt. Hughes. The Formidable, Prince George, and Royal Charlotte, are to proceed as soon as possible to the West Indies, under the Command of the Hon. Augustus Keppel, and John Amherst, Esq; Vice Admirals of the Blue. We hear that the Achilles, which was bound to England from America, with Dispatches from Virginia, foundered at Sea, and all the Crew perished. The last Letters from the Earl of Bute were dated at Florence the 1st of Dec. last, at which Time his Lordship had again relapsed into the Disorder ( an Indigestion) which occasioned his going Abroad. By a Gentleman just arrived from making the Tour of France, we are informed, that new Woollen Manufactories are now established, and in a flourishing Condition, at Cambray, St. Quintin, and Valenciennes; that they are carried on chiefly by English Artificers, who are engaged on every advantageous Terms Letters from Cadiz mention, that one Mr. Fitzgerald, who has lived for some Time Malaga, has been lately seized, and thrown in Prison, by Order of the Governor, for taking Plans of the Fortifications of some of the Spanish Ports. Yesterday Policies of Insurance were opened at Lloyd's Coffee House, at Ten, Twenty, Thirty, and some at Forty per Cent, on one of our homeward- bound East India men, which has on board a rough Diamond single Stone valued at One Hundred Thousand Pounds Ster- ling. It is sent in its primitive State in order to be manufactured here by our ingenious Countrymen, for the Use of an Indian Nabob So high Opinion do the Asiatics, at this Time, entertain of the Natives of this Kingdom. The two different Accounts of Dr. Markham and Dr. Dampier, succeeding to the vacated See of Chester, should seem both of them to be premature; for, though the former is to be brought in by the Strength of Lord Mansfield, and the latter by that of Lord North, it is said, that an intervening Interest for a third Divine is making a formidable Opposition to them both.— St. James's Chron. The Toast at the West End of the Town is, " May the Spirit of the Parliament of Paris diffuse itself in the S e of Great Britain. " A Correspondent informs us, that there never was known a greater Opposition among the Nobility in Scotland than on the approaching Election for the Sixteen Peers. The Foreign Ministers have formed themselves into a Club; and meet, we find, every Wednesday at the Thatched House Tavern. A Correspondent, who has travelled through most of the great Towns of Europe, and visited the Colleges of the Jesuits in all those Parts, says that there are now near a thousand of them in this Capital and its Environs, many of whole Faces he well remembers to have seen Abroad. Thursday, about Twelve o'Clock at Noon, a Man went into Mr. Folgham's, a Cutler, in Fetter- Lane, and said he wanted a considerable Quantity of Hardware for Exportation ; after looking over a great many Cases of Knives, & c. he pitched upon a Number of them, which he desired to be packed up ; and on be- ing acquainted they came to 50I. presented a Bill on Hankey and Co. for 64I. which he indorsed with the Name of J. Johnson. Mr. Folgham having been imposed on by a Sharper with a forged Draught some Time ago, suspected the Fraud, and inviting the Man into his Parlour, amused him while he dispatched a Servant to Mr. Hankey's Bank, where the Note was found to be forged ; On this two of the Banker's Clerks repaired to Mr. Folgham's, where they seized the Man, and carried him before the Lord Mayor. On his Examination, he said he received the Note in Payment from a Jew, but owned his Name was not Johnson, but Coan, and said he was Mate of an East India man ; on which he was committed to Newgate. A few Days past a Man, being closely pursued by a Press Gang, ran for Refuge into a Clock- maker's in Whitechapel, and took Shel- ter in an empty Clock- case. The Officer and Men entered the House, and after searching for some Time gave him up as lost ; but one of the Tars looking by Accident towards the Case, discovered Part of the Man's Face through the Glass, and asked the Clock- maker what that was ? ( pointing to the Case.) The Regulator of Time replied, " A Clock." A Clock ! ( answered the Sailor) it has a damned ugly Dial- Plate, let us look at the Guts of it. - And the Tar accordingly opening it, conveyed the poor Fellow on board a Tender. This Morning, about Four o'clock, a Fire broke out at a Linen Draper's, in White cross Street, the Corner of Chiswell Street, which entirely consumed the same, together with the Stock in Trade, & c. and greatly damaged the House adjoining before it was extinguished. Wednesday Morning a Servant Maid, in Barton - Street, Westminster, went from her Master's House, and drowned herself: Upon searching the Room where she lay, a Slip of Paper was found on a Bureau, containing these Words, " Whoever wants me, will find me in the Thames." Love is thought to have oc- casioned her Misfortune.

Arrived the Mails from France and Flanders. Copenhagen, December 8. TH E Department of Foreign Foreign Affairs has sent us a Declaration from the King to all the Consuls, and to the Magistrates of this City, by which his Majesty permits all Cap- tains of Ships, who navigate in the Algerian Seas, to attack any of the Corsairs of that Re- gency wherever they shall meet them, and to treat them according to the Laws and Customs of War as declared Enemies. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Dec. 29. Yesterday a Labourer's Door in the Cross Causeway ( a Place within half a Mile of Edinburgh) was observed to be longer shut up than usual, some of the Neigh- bours having knocked, and Nobody answering, they then broke open the Door, where, to their Astonishment, they found the Labourer and a Child dead in Bed, another Child just expiring, his Wife was likewise very bad. When she found herself taken ill, she had attempted to get Out of Bed, but it is supposed her Strength began to fail her. On the Neighbours Enter- ance in the Morning, they found her lying on the Floor. Physicians were immediately sent for, and it is thought the Woman and one of the Children may recover. The Report goes that it was occasioned by a Drink of bad Ale ; others are apprehensive of a contagious Distem- per, but we cannot, as yet, positively deter- mine the Cause. LONDON, Tuesday, Jan. 8. The Continuance of Peace is now absolutely fixed on between Spain and Us ; in the Négo- ciation for which it is said, that our Ministry have at last come off with some Degree of Ho- nour. Would they had at first acted in the Manner which our Situation and Reason dic- tated, we should not then have become, as we are, the Laughing Stock of Europe. We hear that the Spaniards have agreed to give up Falkland's Isle, without any Stipula- tion for a future Accession of the Right to them ; together with some other secret Requi- sitions made on the Part of some old Claims. We are warranted in the Assertion, by the best Authority, that no Requisition was made, in the late Négociation with Spain, to have the Governor of Buenos Ayres criminally punished for his Conduct as to Falkland Island : Our Ministry from the first looked for that Trans- action to the Court of Spain, and treated their Assertion respecting the Governor of Buenos Ayres with the most sovereign Contempt. General Ev. Post. It is said that Mr. G. Pitt, who has long en- joyed the Appointment of Ambassador Extra- ordinary to the Court of Madrid, has received Orders to prepare for his Journey to that Place. We hear from Cadiz, that the Preparations for the Encampment of a large Body of Troops in the Environs of that Place, have, in Conse- quence of an Express from Madrid, been sud- denly stopped ; but that the last Division of the Regiment of Ireland, and three Companies of Walloon Guards, had failed, within these three Weeks, for America; and that four other Regiments were preparing to embark for that Quarter of the Globe, when the Advices came away." They write from Paris, of the 21st of Dec. that the Parliament had received Letters of Jussion, on the 19th, by which his Majesty commands it to resume its Functions ; but that the Parliament refuses to obey them. A Great Personage, it is said, entertains the highest Opinion Of the Abilities of Lord Chat- ham and Lord Camden; and has often declared, in Answer to the public Voice, that he really wishes to have them in Power; but it is well known his Authority for the realizing his Wishes is restrained by an over- ruling Hand, If there be a material Change of the Ministry, that is a Change of Interests, Lord Chatham will most undoubtedly be appointed Premier, and be at Liberty to name his Contemporaries in Office. Lord Chief Justice Wilmot has asked Leave to resign. The Hon. Lord Commissioner Bathurst will be appointed, in a very short Time, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal. Mr. Moreton, Chief Justice of Chester, will be appointed a Puisne Judge in the room of Judge Bathurst. And Mr. De Grey will be appointed Chief Justice of the Common Pleas. Mr. Attor— y Gen— l will go into the Com- mon Pleas, we hear, with a Promise of a Pen- sion on a future Resignation. The Attor— y Gen — l, it is now said, well aware of the present Instability of the present M y, would not accept the Seals from them. But, in taking the principal Seat in the Common Pleas, he certainly has a View to the being Chancellor, in a Time, when he may have a Probability of continuing it longer than the Person who may take the Seals at this Time is supposed possibly can do. It is a Joke ( with those who know any thing of the History of the Bar) the being told that Mr. W- dd ne will be appointed Chancellor before the Conclusion of the present Parlia- ment. The M y are not at all favour- ably inclined to that Gentleman, from his con- tinued Opposition to them, neither would they appoint him to a Place of such great Impor- tance without making handsome Provisions for many of his Seniors at the Bar. A Bill, it is said, will be passed during the Course of the present Session, to hinder the Mi- gration of British Artificers to foreign King- doms, or even to the Colonies. Ireland is likely to be drained of a consider- able Number of her Troops for foreign Service. Three Ships of the Line have already been at Cork, and have taken to the Mediterranean some pretty large Draughts; and now two more Ships are ordered to the same Port for more Soldiers; but their Destination afterwards remains a Secret. Some People assert, that the above is done in Consequence of the Advice of a principal Officer on that Island; in order upon the pre- sent Rumour of War, and the Turbulence of the common People, to terrify the People of Property which compose the Parliament, by leaving them without a proper Defence, into the Measures of Government, against which they have lately made a noble Stand. The Lords of the Admiralty have granted Protections for the Men belonging to the Ships in the East India Company's Service bound to China only, to prevent losing their Voyage. A Gentleman greatly interested in Trade, and to whom early and certain Intelligence respecting the momentous Event of War, would be of the highest Consequences, wrote to Am- sterdam concerning the Ships in the Texel, said to be laden with Ammunition for the Ser- vice of the Spaniards ; and received in Answer a full Refutation of the Report. The Dutch, we learn, are much inclined to the general Peace of Europe; and those saga- cious People give as a Reason, that, as they have not sufficient Power to make new Con- quests, and enlarge the Course of their Trade, they are very assiduous to improve an Equality and good Understanding between the European Powers, that they may not endanger the Loss of their foreign Possessions, in the Broils and Contentions of other Parties. Proper Vessels are stationed before the Har- bours of Brest, Toulon, Cadiz, Carthagena, and Ferrol, with strict Orders to watch the Mo- tions of any Ships that may sail from either of those Ports, to find out their Destination, and give the earliest Intelligence of them to Go- vernment. We are assured from Cork, that two Vessels belonging to Mr. Carleton, an eminent Mer- chant, are just arrived from the Leeward Islands and bring an Account that all was quiet in the Island of Jamaica when they left that Quarter of the World, about ten Weeks ago. They fell in with two Dutch Ships bound for His- paniola, from the Masters of whom they learned that a Squadron of seven Spanish Men of War, and twelve Transports, had kept Company with them for about ten Days before, and had on board a great Number of Troops, and a large Quantity of Military Stores, for Carthagena, Porto Bello, and Panama. As a Proof of the Confidence Numbers of People have in the Assertion a certain Noble Lord lately made, viz. That a Blow has been already struck by our Enemies, we are assured great Bets have been laid at several Coffee Houses in the City, that either Gibraltar or Jamaica have been attacked; and that a distin- guished Gentleman laid an eminent Merchant at the London Coffee House on Saturday Night the Sum of One Hundred Guineas to Fifty, that the French had committed Hostilities in the Carnatic, before last Michaelmas Day. By the last Ships from India, we learn that his Majesty's Ship the Endeavour, on board of which is Mr. Banks and Mr. Solander, who were sent to observe the Transit of Venus, is safely arrived at the Island of Batavia. A Correspondent at Paris, has favoured us with an authentic Copy of the Letre de Cachet, sent by Order of the French King, to his late Prime Minister, the Due de Choiseul, of which the following is a Translation : " My Lord Duke, " I am extremely dissatisfied with your Ser- vices; and I command you to resign the " Three Departments which you hold, viz. the " Office of Secretary of State for Foreign Af- " fairs, Secretary at War, and Postmaster Ge- " neral: I further command you to retire in- stantly to Chanteloux: My first Intention " was to have banished you to Bourges; but, " in Consideration to the Dutchess of Choiseul, " I permit you to remain at your Seat of Chan- " teloux untill you shall know my Pleasure. Signed, LEWIS." Immediately after the Delivery of the above Letter de Cachet, all the Letters and Papers belonging to Mons. de Choiseul were seized by the Due de Vrilliere, and carried to the King. The French King's dismissing Mons. de Choiseul has given great Uneasiness to the Par- tizans of Spain, as that Minister was the Au- thor of the Family Compact. It is currently reported, that a celebrated Lady, who keeps a great House of polite En- tertainment, near Soho, has been employed by the French Ministry, in order to furnish them with political Intelligence, for some Time past. Extract of a Letter from Edinburgh, Jan. 2. " This Day came on the Election of a Peer to serve in Parliament, in the room of the late Duke of Argyle. The Earl of Breadalbane, and the Earl of Stair, were the Candidates.— Lord Stair was elected. There were 28 Peers present, 17 of whom voted for Lord Breadal- bane, and 11 for Lord Stair. The Proxies were mostly in Favour of Lord Stair." Translation of a Letter from Vienna, dated the 15th of November, 1770. " Last Night, at Twelve, the Courier set out for Berlin, with the secret Treaty signed Yesterday, being a Guaranty Treaty of Con- cessions between his Imperial Majesty and the King of Prussia. The Information you shall receive, as just given me by the Secretary In- time. The Emperor gives up the Towns of Ostend and Bruges to the King, where a Royal Prussian East India Company is to be established, and garrisoned by fourteen thousand Prussians. The King engages to march with seventy thou- sand Infantry, and twenty thousand Cavalry, into Alsace, to re- unite for ever that ancient Province to the Dominions of the House of Austria, and to restore Strasbourg to its Free- dom and original Privileges. The Fortress of Hünningen is to be conceded to the Canton of Berne, who accedes to the Treaty. Hambourg is be guarantied to Denmark, who gives up a Danish Settlement in the East Indies to Prussia. Russia gives a Greek Island to Austria, and another to Prussia, the Names of them I do not positively recollect, and am unwilling to men- tion, fearing I should write what is not really fact. Ten thousand Austrian's are to embark at Trieste, to take immediate Possession of a Greek Island. And Dutch Transports are en- gaged to convey from the Elbe six thousand Prussians, who are to be convoyed by six Rus- sian Ships of War to the Levant, for the same Purpose. Russia requires twenty- five thousand Austrian Troops, who are to encamp early upon the Frontiers of Hungary. Ten thou- sand Prussians are likewise to march to the Con- fines of Poland. A Prussian Comptoir, for establishing Communication with the Levant, is to be fixed at Otranto. Thus has the poli- tical Monarch of Prussia, without the Loss of a single Battalion, or the Expenditure of a Ducat, established two great trading Compa- nies, and formed a Plan for becoming a great Maritime Power." There is no News from Bengal of the Au- rora, Capt. Lee, which Ship is supposed to be lost on the Braces, at the Mouth of the River Ganges. By Capt. Liscombe, who is arrived at Poole, from St. Sebastian's, we learn, that the Spani- ards are greatly concerned at the approaching Rupture between England and them; but the Captain was suspicious they had no good De- sign, as they trifled with him for several Days, and delayed, sending the Goods on board ; he therefore thought it most advisable to weigh Anchor, and failed away before he had com- pleted his Lading. The Embargo is taken off from Silks, Lin- en, Cotton, and Rags, imported into this Kingdom from foreign Parts, which was laid on to prevent the Infection of the Plague. A Letter from Rochfort, dated January 3rd, says, " We are very uneasy here, on account of a Danish or Dutch Vessel which has been wrecked on the Sands of Olonne. Some Peo- ple went to her in a Barque, and found twenty dead Men in the Cabin, and had the Impru- dence to load the Barque with some of the Ef- fects that remained on board the Wreck. These People afterwards came hither, and on their Report our Commandant has thought proper to confine them, and to take all the Precautions Prudence dictates in such a Case, for Fear the Vessel, Effects, and Crew, were infected with the Plague." The Difficulties and Confusion which the French Party and Measures have brought on the Affairs of Sweden, begin now to have the most perplexing Consequences on the Admi- nistration. They find they cannot go on, and wish now what they so lately dreaded, to call a new Dyet. The patriot Part, however, are now cool in this, and desire rather to bear somewhat for the present, than not see that de- structive Plan, introduced by French Intrigue and Influence, thoroughly exposed, and ren- dered odious. The Politics of France appear in this, as in other late Instances, to be founded in low Cunning; which doth build on the Pro- bability of Events, but attempts every Thing by the lowest Means, with the Presumption of a weak Self- sufficiency. Yesterday the following unlucky Circum- stance befell three common Reformers ( who for some Time past have lurked about in order to give Information against Farmers and Owners of Waggons, & c. not having Wheels of a cer- tain Breadth): They, having seized a Horse, came before the Bench of Justices in White- chapel, and a Press Gang having Intelligence that a Sailor was before the Justices, came in, and, seeing the Informers, one of the Gang enquired who they were ; who, being told, replied, -— " Ah ! damn ' em, we'll reform ' em presently : " Upon which he made Signal ( as he termed it) and immediately the Gang took hold of the Gentlemen, and carried them on board a Tender, to the no small Satisfaction of the Spectators. Sunday Night, at Eleven o'Clock, died, at the Parsonage House in Hemlet- Row, the Rev. Mr. Warneford, Morning Preacher of Saint Luke's, Old- street, and Lecturer of Bread street : He preached, and administered the Sa- crament at the former Church in the Morning and read Prayers at the latter in the Afternoon, and fell down in a Fit in the Pulpit ; he was carried Home quite speechless, and shortly af- ter expired. This Morning died, at the Temple- House, universally lamented, in the 56th Year of his Age, the Rev. and very learned Doctor Gre- gory Sharpe, Master of the Temple, Fellow of the Royal and Antiquarian Societies, and Chaplain in Ordinary to his Majesty.

A Grastonian Gambler. To the PRINTER. SIR, YOU may assure your Friends, and the Public, that an infamous Accommodation with Spain is now on the Carpet. Lord Wey- mouth foresaw this Accommodation was in- tended ; he thought it dishonourable ; he was afraid of the Consequences, and therefore re signed. Our Ministers, feeling themselves unequal to the Difficulties of War, have taken Advantage of the present Confusion in the French Coun- cils, to patch up this Truce. And to cover their Infamy from the Public, their Friends are at this Moment employed in asserting, " That " since the Exile of M. de Choiseul, it has " been discovered from his Papers, that he was " playing a double Game; that while he was " negotiating Peace, he secretly meant War." Nothing can be more false. Choiseul was in good Earnest FOR PEACE. Those who are best informed will not deny this Fact. Peace, how- ever, may perhaps be obtained for a little Time : But if d'Aiguillon and Broglio are at the Head of the French Cabinet, it will not be of long Duration. And we shall, before six Months are at an End, find, to our Cost, the Baseness of a Treaty, which serves only to give Time to the Enemy. How our Ministers will answer this to the Nation, is not difficult to forefee. With a Majority ready to acquit them at all Adventures, they think themselves in no Dan- ger. And after having put the Nation to two Millions Expence, distressed the Trade, perhaps to the Loss of two Millions more, increased the Land- Tax, spread the Alarm of War, injured the public Credit, the English Navy will be again laid aside, and the Scotch Army again encouraged and protected, in quelling the Murmurs of the People. To the MINORITY MEMBERS of both Houses of Parliament. My Lords and Gentlemen, AS this Address flows from sincerer Principle than that annual one mechanically used on your perennial Convocation, I could with it may meet with greater Attention and Observance; and, indeed, were they both to be judged by the Stan- dard of Equity, I should not despair of succeding, as the one is generally the Requisition of a Minister, either to cover his Knavery or Blunders. This is the genuine Offspring of a Mind, unwarped by Corruption or Party, and which has no other View than promoting the Welfare of a County, whereof he has the peculiar Happiness of being a Member. The last Session of Parliament, the Middlesex Election early became an Object of Enquiry; and I have the Honour of thinking with you, it was an Enquiry of the last Importance to Government, as by the Decision of it, one of the most funda- mental Principles of our Constitution was, or was not to be established. But, alas! though to your immortal Honour, you took every Step that was in your Power to fettle this Object on its natural Basis, the Voices of the People, yet " Offences gilded Hand, shoved by Justice," and the whole Sessions was wasted, without constructing one salutary Law ( save the Privilege Act); and that, if we may judge from the previous Conduct of the Intro- ducer, was rather thrown out as a Tale to the Pub- lic, than any constitutional Intent to serve them. The present Session has been hitherto taken up with another Grievance, of equal Magnitude with the former an Innovation in our criminal Laws ; and which, upon repeated Trials, you have found to meet with no better Success. Is it not reason- able then to suppose, that every Effort you can make for detecting the Vices and Blunders of the present Administration, will end in nothing? I grant you it will ever shew an indisputable Mark of your Zeal; but sorry am I to add, it will equally betray your Weakness. In God's Name, then, seeing Things are in this vicious Train, and seeing that, at present, there is no Possibility of preventing them, suspend for a while these laudable, yet vain Pursuits, and ad- vert to those Matters that there is at least a Proba- bility of succeeding in. I need not paint to your superior Discernment; what these are; they will readily strike you, whilst the ruined Affairs of Ireland and America exist; whilst insolvent Debtors, in a Land of Liberty, languish under such oppres- sive Bondage ; whilst that infamous Act, the Dog Act, stands unrepealed; and whilst the Freedom of the lower Part of his Majesty's Subjects are hourly invaded by the wanton Cruelties of Press Gangs. In attempting to remedy these Evils, as they do not immediately break in on the former Ac- tions of the Minister, or weaken the Ligatures of Party, you stand some Chance of being aided by the Majority ; as such, your Constituents will feel the good Effects of your Endeavours, and not be as they have been hitherto, employed only in elegising the Champions of Liberty. I m far from thinking, however, you should acquiesce, as Guardians of your Country, under the many anti- constitutional Innovations of the present Ministry. God forbid! Let them be remembered by you, whilst " Memory holds a Seat;" and be revenged by you when the Golden Opportunity arrives. But, in the mean Time, let not your whole Time be fruitlessly employed; " drive the Nail that will go." Posterity will thank you for it, and you will enjoy that superior Pleasure of having discharged the Trust committed to your Care ( as far as lies in your Power) like honest Delegates of the People. A Word to the Wise.

By His Majesty's Letters Patent, ( Granted to WALTER LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) is recommended the- Justly Famous PILL, called in the Patent, PILULA SALUTARIA; And there pronounced to be a Cure for the VENEREAL DISEASE, SCURVY, and RHEUMATISM. IN fifteen or eighteen Days it generally cures those cruel Disorders, and where it fails of perfectly restoring Health in that Time, the Patient has the happy Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being restored , let the Degree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excel- lency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the com- plaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter, which they soon dislodge and expell. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Restorer, by taking only eight single Pills ( as instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year. In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them they were sure to fulfill and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and universal same. These Pills are most worth a Place in the Cabinet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the more so, for that they require no Confine- ment, nor Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Cli- mates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation fails. Sold by the Patentee ( in Boxes of is. 6d. each) at his House No. 16, Bride Lane, Fleet Street; who effectu- ally cures Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses : Also sold by Appointment by Mr. Hart, Druggist, in Wolverhampton.
