BERROW'S worcester Journal. THURSDAY, January 24, 1771. No. 4008. 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 SATURDAYS POST. Extract of a Letter from the Hague, Jan. 8. THE last Letters from Ratisbon advise, that an Affair which has been long meditating, is now more talked of than ever at the Court of Vienna. It is a Design formed by the Empress Queen to place her Son in Law, the Duke of Saxe Teschen, upon the Throne of Poland. The Court of Peters- bourgh is not very well pleased with this Project, and it is hardly to be supposed the will suffer such a scheme to be carried into Execution. " Lettters have been received from Madrid, advising, that the Marquis de Grimaldi, Prime Minister at that Court, is disgraced, and the Occasion of it is said to arise from the Endea- vours he made Use of to preserve Peace, con- trary to the Opinion of the King his Master, who is determined on a War. These Letters add, that the Marquis has been forbid to come either to Court or to the Council." LONDON, Thursday, Jan. 17. Letters of Recall were sent to Mr. Harris at Madrid on the 21st of last Month. Yesterday Evening, at Five o'clock, a Spa- nish Courier extraordinary arrived at his Ex- cellency the Spanish Ambassador's House in Ormond- Street, with Dispatches, the Contents of which have not yet transpired. Many People having wondered at Lord Sand- wich's Advancement from the Office of Secre- tary of State, which is Six Thousand, to the Precedence of the Admiralty, which is only Three Thousand, it may be necessary to inform them, the latter is by much the most important Office of the two, and amply compensates in Power as well as in Douceurs the great Dispro- portion of Salary. About the Time ( says a Correspondent) that the great Commoner changed Popularity for Pension and Peerage, and was created Lord C----- m, the Ministry was totally changed: Should the like Event now take Place, as is impatiently expected, and ardently wished for by Thousands, no one need hesitate to pro- nounce, that without the Aid and Assistance of C m, they would all undoubtedly be hanged. On Wednesday several Letters were received at the India House, over Land, from India, dated September last. These Letters mention that there had been no Intelligence received at that Time of the Aurora, on board of which were the three Supervisors, Mr. Vansittart, Mr. Scrafton, and Colonel Ford. Great Interest is making with an opulent Company, by Families at the West End of the Town, for obtaining Appointments for their Relations in the said Company's Service ; the unhappy Fate of the Aurora having once more enabled the Directors to bestow Offices and Emoluments; for notwithstanding many Peo- ple still flatter themselves that she has made some Harbour, there is but too much Reason to fear the contrary. The Loss of the Aurora is of so much Impor- tance to a great Company, and will for such a Length of Time impede the Execution of their Plans, that it is estimated it will make a Diffe- rence of more Thousands to them than three succeeding Years of former Proceedings will suffice to repair. The Fleet for the East Indies is now entirely settled. It is to consist of six Sail of the Line, with Frigates, & c. and if a War breaks out, we hear there is a cautionary Clause in the Contract between Government and the East India Company, for encreasing it. The Nor- thumberland Man of War, with five other Vessels, is now fitting out with the greatest Expedition for this Destination, and the seve- ral Stores are already prepared. Orders are given for augmenting Elliot's and Burgoyne's Regiments of Light Horse, with 120 Men each, besides six Serjeants and six Corporals in each Regiment; and Recruiting Parties are already gone out for that Purpose. We hear that Orders have been sent, within these three Days, to Ireland, to raise Five Thousand Roman Catholics immediately in that Kingdom, to complete the British Army. This extraordinary Measure, added to the Pre- cipitation with which it is ordered to be carried into Execution, shews plainly that the Ministry look upon War as not only inevitable, but close at Hand. Fresh Orders are issued to inspect the Ports and Harbours, & c. on the Coasts of Scotland and Ireland, that they may be repaired im- mediately.. The King of Prussia's Army is larger by thirty thousand Men, than even in the Heighth of last War ; like the Vulture, he seems to be watching which Prey will turn out most ad- vantageous. We are assured that the French have, within these few Months past, cut down, in the island of Corsica, and sent to Toulon, Timber suf- ficient to build twenty Ships of the Line. The following, we are told, is the Form of a Letter sent, by a certain Great P , on Occasion of a late Election: " My Lord, " I trouble you with this, to inform your Lordship that the Earl of D t intends offer- ing himself as a Candidate to succeed the late D. of A. and I own he has my good Wishes. I am, & c." The following is a Copy of the Letter sent to many of the Scotch Peers, previous to the late Election at Holyrood- House: Whitehall, Dec. 21, 1770. " My Lord, " I have the Honour to inform your Lord- ship, that many Peers of North- Britain have objected to the Earl of Dysart as a Candidate to be one of the sixteen Peers to represent that Part of the united Kingdom in Parliament; and also having considered the Earl of Stair as a proper Person to be chosen in the Place of the late Duke of Argyle. Your Lordship will therefore, I hope, allow me to express my Wishes for Lord Stair's Success. I am, with great Truth and Regard, My Lord, Your Lordship's Most obedient humble Servant, SANDWICH. In Consequence of a Request from the Lord Mayor to see the Cornfactors ( who tranfact Business at the Corn Exchange, in Mark- Lane) fifteen of them waited upon his Lordship at the Mansion- House on Saturday last; his Lordship received them very politely, and acquainted them, That as the Business of buying and selling of Corn is now, and indeed had been always carried on, it was impossible for his Meal Weighers to obtain a just Return of all Corn bought and sold, and earnestly recommended it to them for the future, that the Hours of beginning the Market might be from Seven in the Morning in Summer, and Eight in the Winter, to continue till One o'Clock each Day, and no longer ; and that a Bell should be rang at those Hours, and no Business transacted but within that Time. The Gentlemen present all agreed with his Lordship, that it would be a very proper and necessary Regulation, and promised to recommend it to all those of that Business that were absent; so that there is no Doubt of its being carried into Execution. This will reflect great Honour, not only upon the Lord Mayor who proposed it, but all the Gentlemen of the Corn Trade, and contribute greatly to the Satisfaction of the Public. We are informed that on the 10th Instant the Lord Mayor wrote a Letter to the Lords of the Admiralty, requesting Protections for a sufficient Number of able Seamen to navigate the Vessels laden with Corn, Meal, & c. to this Metropolis, which lie at Anchor in different Parts of the Thames; and in Compliance with this Request, their Lordships resolved that the Lord Mayor shall have as many Protections for the above- mentioned Purpose as he shall think necessary. The following Anecdote may be depended on. Tuesday an Officer of the Navy, sent by the Lords of the Admiralty, came to Guildhall to the J—— e Room, and desired Sir W m St n, who was in the Chair, to back a Press Warrant: The Al n told him he would not; the Officer asked him the Reason for his Refusal; he told him, that no Mag te, excepting the L— d Ma— r, had a Right. The Officer stood parlying with him some Time, till at length S- r W m told him, that he was a Blockhead, for endeavouring to interrupt the Peace of the City ; when he went away greatly chagrined. It is now certain, that on Monday Evening, at Five o'Clock, died, at his House in Blooms- bury Square, his Grace John Russel, Duke of Bedford, Marquis of Tavistock, Lord Lieu- tenant and Custos Rotulorum of the Counties of Bedford and Devon, Colonel of the first Regiment of the Devonshire Militia, Vice Ad- miral of the Coasts of Devon, High Steward of the Corporation of Huntingdon, an elder Brother of the Trinity- House, President of the Foundling Hospital, one of the Governors of the Charter- House, Chancellor of the Univer- sity of Dublin, Recorder of Bedford, L. L. D. and Knight of the Garter. His Grace was born on Sept. 30, 1710; in 1731 he married Lady Diana Spencer, Sister to the late Duke of Marlborough, by whom he had one Son, who died the Day he was born, and his Confort died in 1735. Two Years after his Grace married Gertrude, eldest Daugh- ter of John Earl Gower, by whom he had Issue Francis late Marquis of Tavistock, born in 1739; another Son born in 1745, who died in a few Days; and a Daughter, Lady Caroline, who was married in 1762 to George Duke of Marlborough. His Grace, Feb. 10, 1763, signed the Ra- tification of the Definitive Treaty of Peace with France and Spain, and exchanged those Ratifi- cations on the tenth of March ensuing. His Grace is succeeded in Titles and Estates by his Grandson, the Marquis of Tavistock, a Minor about five Years of Age. The City of Bruges, in Flanders, which has, by a late Treaty, been ceded to his Prussian Majesty by the Emperor of Germany, was, in the Days of Queen Elizabeth, a Place of the greatest Trade and Opulence in the Woollen Manufactory in all Europe, info- much, that one of their chief Magistrates erected, at his own Expence, a superb magnificent Gate at the Entrance thereof, whereon was placed the Imperial Arms, elegantly gilt and coloured, of all the various commercial States known. But their Pride, Arrogance, and Luxury, introduced arbitrary Maxims, Laws, and a partial Police; with it, soon followed universal Decay of Trade. Rivals in that Branch sprang up in every Quarter, particu- larly in England, that soon produced a gene- ral Bankruptcy, and total Ruin. The Grass grew in the main Street, upwards of an Eng- lish Mile in Length. About thirty Years since a Stranger would have been at a Loss to see an Inhabitant passing therein, to shew him the Way out of this once famous Place. How soon it may revive its antient Splendor, under the superlative Genius of a Prussian Monarch, its advantageous Situation will soon discover. On Friday Evening last as the Major of a Marching Regiment was crossing the King's Mews at Charing- Cross, an extremely well- dressed Sharper passed by him, and picked his Pocket of a Silk Handkerchief, which being immediately missed, the Major collared him ; when the Fellow pleaded the Impropriety of a Man of his Appearance being a Pick- pocket, and said he had an equal Right to charge him with the like Offence. A Mob soon gathered about him, when the Major frankly told the People his Name, the Commission he held in the Army, and the Place of his Abode. The artful Sharper, with a matchless Effrontery, then informed the Populace that the Major was an Impostor, that he had known him for many Years about the Town to act as a kid- napping enlisting Captain ; which the credu- lous giving Heed to, they ducked the Major in the Horse- pond in the Mews in so severe a Manner, that he continues greatly indisposed. While the above Affair was transacting the Sharper got off undiscovered. Monday Night a Mourning Coach, filled with the Undertaker's Servants, was stopped by a single Highwayman at Bayswater, and robbed of one Shilling, being all the Cash they had; but he had not rode many Yards before his Horse stumbled and threw him, on which he was seized and lodged in the Round- House ; he turns out to be a German Valet de Chambre out of Place. Yesterday the Sessions began at the Old Bai- ley, when 17 Prisoners were tried, 10 of whom were convicted to be transported, and seven were acquitted. Presented.] By his Grace the Duke of Chan- dos, the Rev. James Hoskyns, A. M.

John Pennant, A. M. The Rev. William Williams, A. M. late of Clare Hall, Cam- bridge, to the Rectory of All Saints, with St. Peter's, in Maldon, Essex. Married.] The Hon. and Rev.

Died.] Last Night, about Seven o'Clock, Mr. Arthur Beardmore, an eminent Attorney, and one of the Common Council for the Ward of Walbrook. He was universally respected for his public, disinterested Spirit ; steady in his Prin- ciples ; unawed by Power, or biassed by Party ; a Friend to the Distressed ; an indulgent Hus- band ; a tender Parent, and a sincere Friend. — In Brewer- Street, Golden- Square, Henry Davis, Esq; Councellor at Law.

Yesterday arrived a Mail from Flanders. Leghorn, December 29. LETTERS received here Yesterday from Madrid declare, that Gover- nor Buccarelli, who dispossessed the English of Falkland's Island, so far from being disgraced by that Court for taking that Step, was assured in a Let- ter from the Spanish Minister, that his Catho- lic Majesty was highly satisfied with his Con- duct, and as a Proof of his Approbation, had sent him a Present of two Barbary Horses, and ap- pointed him Governor of Upper Navarre. COUNTRY NEWS. Birmingham, Jan. 21. On Monday Evening last, Mr. Muller of this Town slipped down, opposite the Red Lion Inn, and had the Mis- fortune to break one of his Legs.— On Friday a young Man broke his Leg and Thigh by sliding on the Ice.— And, on Saturday Evening a Woman had the Misfortune to break her Back by a violent Fall in the Square. LONDON, Saturday, Jan. 19. The Court at St. James's Yesterday was very numerous and splendid, on Account of its being observed as her Majesty's Birth- Day, and did not break up till near Six o'Clock ; all the. Royal Family were present, as were also all the Foreign Ministers. Most of the Noblemen and Gentlemen ap- peared in French Cloaths: To the Honour of the Fair Sex, not one Lady could be distin- guished in any other Dress than the Manufacture of their own Country. It was with Pleasure remarked Yesterday that the Leaders in all the contending Parties were at Court, to pay their Compliments to her Majesty. At the Court of Common Council on Wed- nesday last, a Motion was made for the Thanks of the Court to be given to the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Kite, who had refused to back the Press Warrants; upon which Mr. Wilkes moved for an Amendment to the Mo- tion, which was, that all those Aldermen who had discharged pressed Men might be included, who were Himself, Sir William Stephenson, Mr. Alderman Townfend, Mr. Alderman Saw- bridge, and Mr. Alderman Oliver. Mr. Alderman Townfend, whose Name was inserted in the Lift, got up, and declared he had done nothing to deserve that Honour ; for that he had never been on the Rota when Press Warrants had been brought to be backed. In the Course of Debate he charged Mr. Alder- man Wilkes with having inserted in all the public Papers numberless false Paragraphs and Letters abusing his Character, some of which he specified, and shewed their Falsehood. Mr. Alderman Wilkes said, that he should never avow or disavow any Paragraphs or Letters which were not signed with his Name. Mr. Alderman Turner likewise charged Mr. Wilkes with having inserted false and scandalous Charges concerning him, in a Letter in the public Papers, intitled City Politics. Mr. Wilkes replied, as before, he should neither avow nor disavow. Mr. Turner said, that when any Person refused to disavow a Charge which he must know to be false and scandalous, it was in Effect an Avowal ; but that Mr. Townsend had said so much to him, and so properly on the Subject, that more was not necessary from Mr. Turner. Great Opposition was made by the Court in general to the Motion for prolonging the Bounty to Seamen entering into the King's Service. The Members in the Opposition said, that the Benefits arising from the Bounty were totally defeated by Mr. Alderman Harley's backing the Press Warrants; the City, they said, was no longer a Sanctuary for their Ser- vants ; that, notwithstanding near two thou- sand Pounds had been paid in Bounty Money by the City, a Set of lawless Russians was let loose upon them again. Even Persons who now had a Desire to receive the Bounty, were prevented from doing so, by being pressed in the Road to Guildhall, and carried on board the Tender. The whole Court was quite cla- morous to take off the Bounty, till a Message was brought from the Trinity House, that they had resolved to add Twenty Shillings to the City's Bounty, it was therefore agreed to en- large the Time for one Month longer; at the Expiration of which Time, it is generally be- lieved, the Bounty will cease, except the Lords of the Admiralty withdraw their Press Gangs applying to the Common- Council for what he was sure he could not obtain, and by avoiding to make a similar Promise to that of Mr. Oliver, which he might one Day or other be called on to perform. If Lord C m is brought into the Ad- ministration, which is now generally believed, Places must be vacated which are now from the City. After the common Business of the Court was over, Mr. Alderman Wilkes gave Notice, that he should, on some future Occasion, make a Motion in that Court, that a new Bye- Law might be made, that the Elections of Alder- men might be annual. Mr. Alderman Ken- net said, he hoped the worthy Alderman would move that there might be a Qualification too appointed for those who should be Candidates for that Office. One of the Common Council Men said, that Mr. Alderman Wilkes, by this Motion, displayed only three of his leading Qualities, Ignorance, Vanity, and popular Hypocrisy. Ignorance, by applying to the Common Council to alter the Manner of City Elections, which was established by Act of Parliament, and could only be changed by the same Power; Vanity, by endeavouring to rob Mr. Oliver of the Merit of his Declaration when chosen Alderman, viz. that he wished the Election of Aldermen was annual, and that for his Part he would resign his Gown as chearfully as he took it up, whenever the many filled, and many Measures wholly changed that are at present adopted. We are well informed that the Lords Gower and North will have the two vacant Garters. It is said that some new Grants of several uncultivated Spots of this Kingdom, with great Encouragement to those for whose Benefit they are intended, are now making out; which will obviate the Calamities with which the Act for Enclosures threatens the ensuing Generation. The Dispatches communicated to the Spanish Ambassador from his Court on Wednesday Evening last, are said to contain more haughty Requisitions than any hitherto demanded; which we hope will now convince our Ministry of the Folly of Procrastination. It was last Night current, that the Spanish Ambassador had received Letters of Recall by the Messenger who arrived at his House last Wednesday Night. We are assured, from very good Authority, that the Ministers of France, at the several Courts of Europe, have been incessantly using their utmost Efforts to prevent a War with this Nation. A Correspondent assures us, that Orders are stuck up in all the Sea- Ports of Spain, for no Ships to depart without proper Convoys, which are speedily to be appointed. A young Gentleman, who has been but a few Days arrived from making the Tour of Europe, and in his Way Home past through a con- siderable Part of Spain, declares the Spaniards in general are in high Spirits at the Prospect of a War with England, in Hopes ( say they) " of revenging the Insults and Depredations committed on them by this Nation in the for- mer and late Wars." There are now upwards of 2200 Men em- ployed in the King's- Yard at Chatham in sit- ting out the Ships now in Dock there, and finishing those on the Stocks. Orders have been lately sent from the War- Office to Ireland, for all the Regiments on that Establishment to be fully complemented and of- ficered as soon as possible. A Suspension of Arms between the Turks and the Russians, we have the bell Authority for saying, has been brought about through the Mediation of our Court.— Lond. Ev. Post. A Reconciliation, we are informed, is about taking Place between the French King and his Parliament. One of the most distinguished Members of the Grand Chamber of the Parliament of Paris made the following Speech in a late Assembly of that Parliament: " I am not ignorant that my Head is proscribed; however, notwithstanding the Assurance I have that the Blow would cer- tainly have been struck but for the particular Goodness of the King, my Opinion is, that Magistrates, covered with Ignominy, cannot exercise with Dignity the Functions of the Ma- gistracy ; that they ought to beseech his Ma- jesty either to withdraw his Edict, or to retake their Offices, and dispose of their Heads. With these Sentiments I am ready to defend to my Grave. I deposit them in the Breast of the Company." A Letter from Leghorn mentions, that the French are now actually building ten Ships of War in the Ports of Corsica, from thirty to fifty Guns each. The Worcester East- Indiaman, which arrived at Bombay the 14th of July, touched at Jo- hanna and found the Vansittart, Egmont and Prime. The Princess Royal and Europa were spoke with by a Country Ship in the nine De- gree Channel, the 12th of June. The Prince of Wales arrived at Bengal, the 2d of April. The Duke of Kingston arrived at Madrass the 2d of May. The Houghton ditto at ditto the 1st ditto. The Valentine ditto at ditto the 28th ditto : And the Greenwich arrived at Bombay the 25th of July, who spoke with the Latham and Vansittart in her Passage, but the Advices do not mention when or in what Latitude. It is said, the East- India Company have re- ceived some very agreeable Accounts of the State of their Affairs in Bengal; their Influence in the Carnatic, it is said, is become more powerful than ever; and two of the Soubahs, who were said to be attached to the Enemies of the English, have given the strongest Proofs of their Attachment to us, and allowed the Com- pany's Servants considerable Advantages in Commerce over their Neighbours. In conse- quence of this Intelligence, India Stock has risen considerably for these two Days past. A Person was dispatched on Wednesday Night, with Letters to the Earl of Bute, at Padua, in Italy, to acquaint him of the Death of the Duke of Bedford. The Duke of Bedford has made the Dutchess of Bedford's Jointure equal to 1o. ooo/- per Annum ; he has also bequeathed to her Grace all her Jewels, Trinkets, and Paraphernalia, entirely at her own Disposal. He has left her the Use of Bloomsbury House, furnished as it is at present, and also Wooburn House and Park, during Life. He has left his Grandson ( the now Duke of Bedford) 200l. per Annum till he arrives at the Age of fifteen ; at the Age of sixteen 1ool- a Year more, till he arrives at which he is to receive till he comes To each of his other two Grandsons he has left an Annuity for Life of 6001. He has left his Widow forty Horses. To Richard Rigby, Esq; he has left the Sum of 6000l. It is said the present Duke of Bedford, when at Age, will possess near 70,0001. per Annum. It is said, the present Dispute between two popular Aldermen arose upon the following Occasion: A Debt of 1000l. contracted by Mr. Wilkes, since the Establishment of the Bill of Rights Society, being produced at a late Meeting there, Mr. Townsend objected to it's being allowed, as it would, he said, be a Breach of Trust towards those who had so largely contributed to so laudable a Design, as relieving a Man of a Load of Debts, who had suffered so much already in the Service of his Country : The Intention of the Contribu- tors, and the Design of the Institution, was to pay all Debts then contracted, and not to make his liberal Way of Life, and Contempt of Mo- ney, a Charge upon the Prudent and Industri- ous. At the next Meeting Mr. Wilkes com- plained, that the Debt was not discharged, and said, that the Opposition made at the last Meet- ing ( pretending not to know who made it) was shamefully illiberal; whereupon Mr. Townsend rose up, and acknowledged it was he that op- posed the Application of 1000l. to a different Purpose from that which it was intended for by those who intrusted them with the Management of it. He was then interrupted by Mr. Wilkes, who said, if he was the Author of that Oppo- sition, he was unworthy to be a Member of that Society; upon which Altercation arose, Words ran very high, and Mr. Townsend left the Room, telling Mr. Wilkes he was then, and should always be, ready to give him any Satisfaction. Mr. Wilkes was attempting to follow him out; but the Company interposed, and prevented it. The Misery and Oppression which the poor unhappy Creatures undergo who are most inhumanly dragged from their distressed Fa- milies, and hurried on board Tenders almost every Hour of the Day, calls aloud for Redress; and we are assured that the noble Earl of Chat- ham intends to interfere in their Behalf at the next Meeting of Parliament. In the Year 1740 a most infamous Bill was brought into Parlia- ment, intituled, The Seaman's Bill, " which empowered Constables to search after these poor unhappy Creatures, break open their Doors, drag them into the Service ; and to conclude this Scene of Barbarism, register their Names as Slaves for Life." This noble Lord ( then Mr. Pitt) having expressed a laudable Indig- nation at such a despotic Stride, with a Torrent of oratorical Invective, attacked every Clause of it, and merely by his Powers routed this flagrant Imposition on our Liberties. This so inflamed Mr. H. Walpole ( the Minister's Bro- ther) that he lost all Temper. He reflected on Mr. Pitt's Youth, and observed, that the Dis- covery of Truth was very little promoted by pompous Diction and theatrical Fustian. Such Insinuations brought on Mr. Pitt's Reply, which was as follows: " I will not undertake to determine, whether Youth can be justly im- puted to any Man as a Reproach ; but I do af- firm, that the Wretch, who, after having seen the Consequences of repeated Blunders, con- tinues still to err, and whose Age has only added Obstinacy to Stupidity, is surely the Object of either Abhorrence or Contempt, and deserves not that his grey Hairs should secure him from Insults. Much more is he to be ab- horred, who, as he is advanced in Age, has receded from Virtue, and becomes more wicked with less Temptation, who prostitutes himself for Money which he cannot enjoy, and spends the Remains of his Life in the Ruin of his Country." Yesterday 15 Prisoners were tried at the Old- Bailey, two of whom were capitally convicted, viz. James Glover, for stealing nine Firkins of Butter from on board the Adventurer, lying off Tower Wharf, in the River Thames; and Ann Banks, for stealing a Quantity of Wear- ing Apparel; ten were cast for Transportation, and 3 acquitted. This Day ended the Sessions, when 17 Pri- soners were tried, one of whom was capitally convicted, viz. Daniel Harris, for stealing a large Quantity of Goods out of the House of his Matter, Ebenezer Morgan, Cabinet- Maker, in Lemon- Street, Goodman's Fields: Ten were cast for Transportation for 7 Years, one for 14 Years; one to be whipt, and 5 acquitted. It is said one of the Transports convicted this Sessions of picking Pockets, is possessed of real and personal Estates to the Value of between 1000l. and 2000l.

As every Being is endued with a Kind of Instinct according to its Wants, so Man, by adding Understanding to this Instinct, is enabled not only to discover, but like- wise to adapt, in a suitable Manner, the Proper- ties of such Things as are necessary for him. The Highlanders in Scotland, being obliged to lead a laborious Life, attended with Hardships, although they are in other Respects an indefatigable People, are nevertheless liable to the Infirmities of Na- ture ; their continual Excursions subjecting them to Corns on their Feet, they have invented a Re- medy for them, which is the most efficacious of any hitherto discovered. It is now offered to the Public, from a Persuasion that those who shall make Use of it, will experience its Effects to be infallible.

( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) Arrived the Mails from Holland. Brindes, December 20. WE have just received Letters which positively assert that the Russians have retaken the Island of Lemnos, and cut to Pieces all the Turks which Hassan Bey had conducted thither. The Castle has also surrendered, and some of the Letters even mention the Terms of Capitulation. Thorn, Dec. 26. The Confederates have just exercised a most horrid Cruelty on a Burgomaster of Schwerin: After a Variety of ill Usage, because he refused to join their Party, they stripped him naked, bound him Neck and Heels, and lashed him till his Groans would have pierced a Heart of Stone; then they made a Hole under his Chin, through which they put a Cord, which came out at his Mouth, and by which they hung him up to a Tree, where he languished several Hours, till such Time as one of the Barbarians thought proper to shoot him through the Heart. Rome, Dec. 19. Cardinal Colorina, Vicar to the Pope, has published a Placard, by which all Women, of what Degree soever, are forbid to appear in the Churches with their Faces uncovered. LONDON, Tuesday, Jan. 22. Queen's House, Jan. 22. His Majesty having been pleased to deliver the Custody of the Privy Seal to the Right Honourable Henry Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire, his Lordship was there- upon, by His Majesty's Command, sworn of His Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council, and accordingly his Lordship took his Place at the Board. His Majesty having been pleased to appoint the Right Honourable George Dunk, Earl of Halifax, to be one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, his Lordship was this Day, by His Majesty's Command, sworn one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State accord- ingly.- London Gaz. We are very well informed, that the Spanish Ambassador has received full Powers from his Court to conclude an Accommodation with England. And, It is now certain, that the Spanish Court has agreed to give up Falkland's Island, and to pay 5oo. oool. as a Compensation to Great Britain, and also to pay the Manilla Ransom within the Space of twelve Months. It is very extraordinary, but no less true, that all the Ministers of State ( one only ex- cepted) have been all along kept Strangers to the Merits of the present Negotiation. ment, sent a Letter to the Lord Mayor; of which the following is an exact Copy: St. James's, Jan, 22, 1771. My Lord, " I TAKE the earliest Opportunity of in- " forming your Lordship, that the Spanish " Ambassador hath this Day, at Two o'Clock, " signed a Declaration relative to the Expedi- " tion against Falkland's Island, which his. " Majesty has been pleased to accept. " I am, my Lord, " Your Lordship's most Obedient, " Humble Servant, Lord Mayor. ROCHFORD." All the Great Officers of State are summoned to attend a Council to be held this Evening, at the Secretary of State's Office in Cleveland- row. This Day both Houses of Parliament met, pursuant to their last Adjournment, but no- thing material was done. Dispatches arrived late last Night at the French Ambassador's House, in Great George- Street, from the Court of Versailles, in such Haste, that the same Courier set out again within four Hours for Paris. An anonymous Writer in one of the Morn- ing Papers says, " Lord Sandwich actually signed the Convention with Spain last Saturday Morning ; and that it was sent off to Paris the very same Day, for the King of France's Ap- probation. A thundering Memorial, it is said, has been presented to our Ministry by Count Maltzhan, the Prussian Envoy Extraordinary, in which his Majesty demands the Subsidy- Money due to him, in a very high and unusual Tone.— This Demand on our Court amounts, it is said, to 1,500,000l. The King of Prussia has, at this Time, some very great Scheme in Contemplation; and his present Conduct with respect to his Army, induces some Persons to believe, that it will not be long before he will put it in Execution. This Monarch seems to portend a more formi- dable Foe to Britain than most People are aware of. It is said that the Peers of Scotland propose to instruct their Representatives, the Sixteen, to use their Endeavours in Parliament to pre- vent for the future the Exertion of ministerial Influence in all Elections, upon any Vacancy in the Peerage ; and the circular Letter they received from the E— of S— dw— h, upon a late Occasion, is to be laid before the House of Lords. We hear that Mr. Alderman T intends to move, in the next Court of Common- Coun- cil, for a Bye- Law to be made to oblige the Lord- Mayor, for the Time being, to sign Press- Warrants, whenever he shall be required by Government so to do, as he apprehends that it is the best Method of raising Men for his Majesty's Service ; and that he always looked upon those who opposed Press- Warrants as Enemies to Government. It is now by many imagined, that he intends to make one bold Push for a Place, Pension, or Contract. ' Tis supposed that this is the principal Cause of his breaking with Mr. W The Matter in Dispute at present which re- tards the Appointment of a Chancellor is, whether he shall be a Politician or not. One Part of the Ministry, and indeed the greatest, are for having that Office placed in the Hands of a meer Lawyer, whilst the other think it ne- cessary to have a Man who can preside in a cer- tain Place, and be of Use to the Cabinet. It is very extraordinary, says a Correspon- dent, that at a Period when our Enemies are making the most hostile Preparations, we should suffer our whole Attention to be engrossed by the filling up of one great Office, which de- mands only Rectitude and Perspicuity in the Possessor to support its Dignity, and advance the general Good. We hear that the Hon. Augustus Hervey will be appointed a Lord Commissioner of the Admiralty. Admiral Holburne has quitted the Board of Admiralty, and is succeeded by Sir George Bridges Rodney in Greenwich Hospital. Admiral Spry is to command the Squadron destined for the East- Indies. The Expedition which Lord Howe was to have commanded, is entirely said aside. Yesterday after the Court, Drawing- Room, and Council, were over at St. James's, the Lords North and Sandwich, and the Right Hon. Mr. Rigby, had a long Conference with his Majesty at St. James's. The Royal Assent for the Bishopric of Ely, in Favour of Dr. Edmund Keene, late Bishop of Ely, has passed the Great Seal. The Rev. Mr. Thurloe, Brother to the So- licitor General of that Name, is appointed to the vacant Stall in the See of Durham. The Rev. Mr. Robinson, Cousin in Law to Lord North's Butler, is appointed to the rich Living of Stanhope, in the County of Derby, being worth 800l. per Annum. The Lords of the Admiralty, Yesterday Even- ing, sent a Message to the Master of Lloyd's Coffee- House, to acquaint the Merchants and others concerned in Shipping, that Protections are now granted for all Merchant Ships, out- ward or homeward bound, and to all other Persons who may apply for them. Yesterday the Lord Mayor sent a Letter to the Regulating Captain on board the Tender in the River, to discharge a Man pressed in the City; on the Receipt of which the Captain delivered up the impressed Man to the Officer who brought him his Lordship's Letter. neral Court of the India Company, to be held To- morrow, with respect to the Increase of the Allowance to be made to the Directors. Advice has been this Day received of the Safety of the Aurora Man of War, on board of which are the Supervisors. By Letters from Gibraltar there is Advice, that a Vessel which put in there from Tangier, in Africa, brought an Account, that on the 12th of December last, there was a severe Shock of an Earthquake felt there, which lasted two Minutes and a Half; that great Part of the Houses were thrown down; and the In- habitants buried in the Ruins. The Letters further say, that it was felt several Leagues at Sea, and that it was perceived at Gibraltar, and at the Time it happened the Sea rose considerably. There has been lately said before the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce, in the Strand, an Improvement to the Room, made by a poor Weaver. The Alterations he has made in this useful Machine, are, the reducing it to a much less Magnitude than those of the usual Constructions, and the taking away entirely those Parts of the Frame Work that obstructed the Light; leaving it, at the same Time, even more commodious and effectual in its Use in all other Respects.

The Governors of our Infirmary return their Thanks to the Executors of the last Will and Testament of Mr. Edward Brockhurst, late of Upton upon Severn deseased, for a Le- gacy of Twenty Guineas, left by him to this Charity, which has been paid to one of the Treasurers. A Dispensation has passed the Seal to enable the Rev. William Green, D. D. to hold the Rectory of Lighthorne, in the County of War- wick, and Diocese of Worcester ( vacant by the Cession of the Hon. and Rev. Brownlow North, Dean of Canterbury) together with another Benefice in the Diocese of Lichfield and Coventry. Lately died, the Reverend Mr. Meder Edwards, Rector of Birts Morton, in this County, who had been confined in the Fleet Prison four Years for a Contempt of the Court of Chancery. A few Days since, one Elizabeth Winnall, was committed to our County Goal, being charged with stealing from out of the House of Mr. George Bartlett, of Pedmore, an Apron, a Spindle of Yam, a Pair of Stockings, and divers other Things. Last Week was committed to Stafford Gaol, one John Cope, charged on the Oath of Mr. Richard Simister, of Wolverhampton, Watch- maker, with breaking open his Shop, and stealing thereout three Silver Watches. We hear from Leominster, that a melancholy Accident lately happened to one Charles Tur ner, a Mason, of that Place, who, being out a shooting, his Gun burst, and terribly shattered his Scull; and in this Condition the poor Fel- low walked near a Mile for Assistance ; but it proved of little Effect, for he died in a Day or two after.

SIR, Jan. 15, 1771. IF Sir E. H. had followed the Advice and Ex- ample of his Friends, he would not have been reduced to the dishonourable Necessity of quitting the Direction of the English Navy, at the very Moment it is going to be employed against the foreign Enemies of England. To be left in Em- ployment after Chatham, Granby, and Camden had retired ;— to continue in it, in Company with G— n, N— h, G— r, and H- sb— gh ;— and at last to be succeeded by Lord S-- dw-- h, are Cir- cumstances too disgraceful to admit of Aggra- vation. It is natural to sympathise in the Distresses of a brave Man, and to lament that a noble Estate of Reputation should be squandered away in Debts of Dishonour, contracted by Sharpers. His M. God bless him, has now got rid of every Man, whose former Services or present Scruple, could be supposed to give Offence to her Royal Highness the P. D. of W— s. The Security of our civil and religious Liberties cannot be more happily provided for, than while Lord M— sf— d pronounces the Law, and Lord S- dw- h represents the Religion of St. James's. Such Law and such Religion are too closely united, to suffer even a momentary Intervention of common Honesty be- tween them. Her Royal Highness's Scheme of Government, formed long before her Husband's Death, is now accomplished. She has succeeded in disuniting every Party, and dissolving every Connexion; and, by the mere Influence of the Crown, has formed an Administration, such as it is, out of the Refuse of them all. There are two leading Principles in the Politics of St. James's, which will account for almost every Measure of Government, since the K.' s Accession. The first is, that the Prerogative is sufficient to make a Lackey a Prime Minister, and to maintain him in that Post, without any Regard to the Welfare or to the Opinion of the People. The second is, that none but Persons insignificant in themselves, or of tainted Reputation, should be brought into Employment. Men of greater Consequence and Abilities, will have Opinions of their own, and will not submit to the meddling, unnatural Am- bition of a Mother, who grasps at unlimited Power, at the Hazard of her Son's Destruction. They will not suffer Measures of public Utility, which have been resolved upon in Council, to be checked and controuled by a secret Influence in the Closet. Such Men consequently will never be called upon, but in Cafes of extreme Necessity. When that ceases, they find their Places no longer tenable. To answer the Purposes of an ambitious Woman, an Administration must be formed of more pliant Materials ;- of Men, who, having no Connexion with each other, no personal Interest, no Weight or Consideration with the People, may separately depend upon the Smiles of the Crown alone, for their Advancement to high Offices, and for their Continuance there. If such Men resist the P fs D r's Pleasure, his M. knows that he may dis- miss them without risquing any Thing from their Resentment. His Wisdom suggests to him that, if he were to choose his Ministers for any of those Qualities, which might entitle them to public Esteem, the Nation might take Part with them, and resent their Dismisso... As it is, whenever he changes his Servants, he is sure to have the People, in that Instance, of his Side. I love and respect our gracious S n too much to suppose it possible, that He should be any Thing more than passive in forming and supporting such a System of Government; and even this Acquiescence of the best of Princes, I am ready to attribute to a most amiable Quality implanted in him, by Nature, and carefully cultivated by Art, --- unlimited Duty and Obedience to his dear Mo- ther. — Few Nations are in the Predicament that we are, to have nothing to complain of, but the filial Virtues of our Sovereign. —- Charles the First had the same implicit Attachment to his Spouse;— but his worthy- Parent was in her Grave. It were to be wished that the Parallel held good in all the Circumstances. In respect to her Royal Highness, I shall deliver my Sentiments without any false Tenderness or Reserve. I consider her not only as the original creating Cause of the shameful and deplorable Condition of this Country, but as a Being, whose Operation is uniform and permanent; who watches, with a Kind of providential Malignity, over the Work of her Hands, to correct, improve, and preserve it. If the strongest Appearances may be relied on, this Lady has now brought her Schemes to Perfection. Every Office in Govern- ment is filled with Men, who are known to be her Creatures, or by mere Cyphers, incapable of Re- sistance. Is it conceivable that any Thing, less than a determined Plan of drawing the whole Power of the Crown into her own Hands, could have collected such an Administration as the pre- sent?—- Who is Lord N— h ?—- The Son of a poor unknown Earl; who four Years ago was a needy Commissioner of the Treasury for the Benefit of a Subsistance, and who would have accepted a Com- mission of Hackney Coaches upon the same Terms. The Politics of Carlton House— Finances picked up in Mr. G— v— U-' s Anti- chamber, and the Elocution of a Demosthenes, endeavouring to speak plain with Pebbles in his Mouth, form the stuffing of that Figure, that calls itself Minister, that does Homage to the P ss D r, and says, Madam, I am your Man. The Stage was deprived of a promising Actor, when poor Lord H— sb h gave his Mind to Politics. Yet his Theatrical Talents have been of Use to his Fortune. The P. D. saw what Part this Man was capable of acting; and, with Re- gard to himself, it signified but little whether he represented Prince Volscius at Drury Lane, or Se- cretary of State at St. James's. It is not pretended that Lord R— hf— d's Abili- ties are of the explicit Kind. Yet, from a Charge d'Affaires at Turin, the all- powerful guiding Hand has raised him to be Secretary of State. The P. D. knows, better than we do, what posi- tive good Qualities this Nobleman possesses. The Public only knows that he is a Mute in the House of Lords, and that he is destitute of Fortune, Merit at Carlton- House. The Character of third Secretary is not yet dis- posed of. Public Suspicion gives Lord H- lsb— h a formidable Rival. At the Opening of the Thea- tre, young S- ff— k is to be produced. Prince Pretty man can cant very near as well as Prince Volscius. Such a Pair of Actors make Tragedy ridiculous. Our Enemies at least will laugh at the Catastrophe. But this young Man shall be left for abler Hands. It requires no vulgar Pen to do Jus- tice to such a Strain of morstrous Prostitution. Why is that wretched Creature Lord T- nsb-- d maintained in Ireland ? Is it not universally known that the Ignorance, Presumption, and Incapacity of that Man have ruined the King's Affairs in Ire- land ?— that he has, in a great Measure, destroyed the political Dependance of that Country upon Great Britain?—- But he too is an unconnected Being, without any Hope of Support, but in the Protection of Lord B. and the P. D. Why is not a Commander in Chief appointed ? Because there is an insignificant Secretary at War, who has no Chance of continuing in the Receipt of 2500l. a Year, but by making himself the In- strument through which the P. D. disposes of every valuable Commission in the Army. Why have we not a Master General of the Ord- nance ? Because the gentle Conway knows how to be as pliant as Lord Barrington. Why is there no Chancellor? Partly because there is a Convenience in bribing four of the J s with the Emoluments of that Office, and partly because no Man of Credit in the Profession will submit to act with the present infamous Adm st— n. What Merit has Lord H— f- x?— The Issue of General Warrants;— the Opposition of his Privi- lege for Years together to the Laws of his Coun- try (--- Prostitution in private Life, and Poverty in the Extreme. Why is the K— so fond of having Lord B— stol about his Person ? If the Duties of the noble Lord's Office had a closer Connection with the Title of it, as usually pronounced, I should understand his M- j- sty, and admire his Attention in paying so delicate a Compliment to his Lordship's Amours. The last Question I would ask is, By what Kind of Service or Ability the Earl of S— dw-- h is distin- guished ? Prostitution and Poverty may be found in other Subjects, and Appearances saved by a de- cent Formality of Behaviour. The Choice, and Preference of the most profligate Character in the Kingdom may suit well enough with the substan- tial Purposes of Carlton- House; but how does it consist with the hypocritical Decorum of St. James's ? What Opinion are we to entertain of the Piety, Chastity, and Integrity of the best Princes, when, in the Face of England, and of all Europe, he takes such a Man as S— dw- h to his Bosom ! — - Let us hear no more of the Piety of St. James's. — To talk of Morals or Devotion, in such a Company, is a scandalous Insult to Com- mon Sense, and a still more scandalous Mockery of Religion. The P. D. having now carried her Plan of Ad- ministration into Effect, it is not to be wondered that she should be very unwilling to expose her- self and her Schemes to the uncertain Events of a foreign War. She knows that a Disaster abroad would not only defeat the cunning Plan of female Avarice and Ambition, but that it might reach farther. — The Mothers of our Kings have here- tofore been impeached; and if the Precedents are not so compleat as they should be, they re- quire and will admit of Improvement. To maintain this Lady in her present State of Power and Security, there is no Insult, no Indig- nity, to which the K— of B must not Sub- mit,—- no Condition, however humiliating, which the K— and the Nation must not accept of with- out Resentment At this Point, however, her Cunning forsakes her. Both she and her Mi- nisters deceive themselves grossly, if they imagine that any Concessions can secure Peace with an Enemy determined upon War. She may dis- grace the English Nation. She may dishonour her Son, and persuade him to forfeit his Right to Pre- cedence among the Sovereigns of Europe. The Man who receives a Blow, and does not return it ( whether he be a King or a private Person) from that Moment stands degraded from his na- tural Rank and Condition. If he be a young Man, his Infamy is immortal. — Yet I am ready to confess, that were two Nations upon the Whole are peaceably disposed, there is a Degree of Slight and Ill- humour, and even of Injury, which, for the Sake of Peace, may and ought to be dis- sembled: But a direct, positive, and intended In- sult must always be resented. To flatter ourselves that the Moderation of the Spaniards will be pro- pro- portioned to our Forbearance, or that, because we have submitted tamely to one Affront, they will therefore avoid offering us a second, would be arguing in Contradiction to all Reason and Ex- perience. If Falkland's Island had never existed, the Rancour of the Spaniards would not have failed to discover itself in some other Mode of Hostility. Their whole History, since the Acces- sion of Philip the 5th, is a continued Proof of rooted Antipathy to the Name of Englishmen ; and I am justified, by a Series of indisputable Facts, in affirming that from the Treaty of Utrecht to this very Hour, there has never been a single Instance of common Justice or Decency, much less of Cordiality or Friendship in the Con- duct of the Court of Madrid towards this Coun try. Lord S— dw— h declared a Month ago, in full Parliament, that Gibraltar was a Place of no Consequence, and immediately afterwards the P. D. makes him Secretary of State. Whoever com- pares the Sale of Dunkirk with this Nobleman's Character, must be very much of a Sceptic, if he entertains any Doubt about the Fate of Gibraltar. But neither this Sacrifice, nor even that of Ja maica, would be sufficient to produce a solid per- manent Union with Spain. They may despise us more, but they will never hate us less By the P. D.' s Management, instead of avoid- ing a War, we make it certain. A little Spirit at first might perhaps have intimidated the Spa- niards. Our notorious Weakness and shameful Submission have only served to encourage and confirm them in their Resolution. In Point of Honour is so irretrievably stained, that it cannot now be recovered by the most vigorous Measure of Revenge. — From her R. H.' s Government in Time of Peace we may well conclude in what Manner she will conduct a War. Gifted as she is, she could hardly fail of Success, if the Quar- rels of Nations bore any Resemblance to domestic Feuds, or could be conducted upon the same Principles. The Genius of Queen Elizabeth united the Nation, collected the Strength of the People, and carried it forward to Resistance and Victory. When the Daemon of Discord sits at the Helm, what have we to expect but Distraction and C— l W- r at Home, Disgrace and Infamy Abroad ! DOMITIA N.

A List of such Subscribers as chuse to have their Names appear to this Work, shall be printed and delivered gratis, in the last Number. DE VIE, and the consequent large Demand having prompted avaricious and fraudulent Persons attempt Imitations of this excellent Medicine, which may have the most pernicious Effects on the Health of those who are imposed upon by them ; the Patentees have therefore impowered Mr. Thomas Becket, one of the Proprietors, to sign his Name to each Bottle, and have also appointed W. Nicoll, to sign his Name as Vender; as being the most effectual Security to the Public against such dangerous Counterfeits. The Sellers of this ONLY GENUINE BEAUME DE VIE, as well as the Purchasers, are requested to take Notice of this Alteration. Any Person forging the above Signatures is guilty of Felony, and will be prosecuted accordingly. This, most admirable Family Medicine ( by Appointment of the Proprietors, to whom his Majesty has granted his ROYAL LETTERS PATENT) is sold by W. Nicoll, No. 51, St. Paul's Church Yard, in London, at 3s. the Battle ; with good Allowance for charitable Uses, or to sell again; and by Messrs. Pearson and Aris, in Birming- ham; Holdier, in Cirencester; Jopson, in Coventry ; Raikes, in Gloucester; Pugh, in Hereford; Pearce, in Ludlow; Jackson, in Oxford ; Taylor, in Stafford; Hesketh, in Stourbridge; Keating, in Stratford ; Eddowes, in- Salop ; Berrow, in Worcester; Keating, in Warwick ; and Lambert, in Walsall. Of whom may be had, Price only 6d. A Narrative of many extraordinary and well attested Cures wrought by the Beaume De Vie. The following GENUINE MEDICINES are sold, by Appointment, at H. Berrow's, Printer, near the Cross, Worcester, and may also be best of the Worcester Newsmen. 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 it 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 fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and universal Fame. These Pills are most worth a Place in the Cabinet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the mere 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 2s. 6d. each) at his House No. 16, Bride Lane, Fleet Street; who effect- ally cures Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses: Also sold by Appointment by Mr. Hart, Druggist, in Wolverhampton. Aris and Co. Birmingham ; Smart, Ludlow ; Hartlebury, Tewkesbury ; Baikes, Gloucester ; Jackson, Oxford ; and at Berrow's Printing Office in Worcester, MAREDANT's DROPS. To Mr. Norton, Surgeon, Golden- Square. SIR, Having some Time Since been greatly assisted with the Scurvy, which appeared in great Blotches and other Eruptions all over my Body, and having had the Advice of several eminent Physicians without Relief, I was at last advised by a Friend to try your ( Maredant's) Drops, which I accordingly did, and am now perfectly restored to my former Health by no other Means. If you think proper to publish this, I have no Objection. Chancery- Lane, I am your very humble Servant, Dec. 5, 1770. THOMAS WILLIAM PINCK. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medi- cine, may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, the West Side of Golden- square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of Six Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long continued In- flammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. N. B.
