Berrow's Worcester Journal. THURSDAY, February 14, 1771. No. 4011. Notwithstanding this Journal is, in most Places, distributed at least a whole Day before any other Country News Paper of the same Date, and also many Hours before the Arrival of the London Mail, it not only contains the most material News published in London on Tuesday Night, but many interesting Articles of Intelligence, not inserted in other Country Papers before the Saturday following. SATURDAY's POST. Arrived two Mails from Holland. Toulon, January 1. THOUGH the Advices from divers Places say that the Dif- ferences between Spain and England are on the Point of being terminated, yet there are great Movements in this City, and the Labours carry- ing on in our Arsenal were not discontinued even during the Holidays. The Number of Workmen in the Dock Yards has been in- creased, as well as that of the Shipwrights; and, for this Fortnight past, we have not ceased working, both on Sundays and Holi- days, on the Batteries along the Road. The Fleet ready in this Port consists of twenty- two Ships of the Line and twelve Frigates. LONDON, Thursday, Feb. 7. The following is an accurate Copy of the two Questions proposed Yesterday in a certain Assembly, by the Earl of Chatham : 1. Whether, in Consideration of Law, the Imperial Crown of this Realm can hold any Territories or Possessions thereunto belonging, otherwise than in Sovereignty ? 2. Whether the Declaration, or Instrument for Restitution of the Port or Fort called Eg- mont to be made by the Catholic King to his Majesty, under a Reservation of a disputed Right of Sovereignty expressed in the very Declaration or Instrument stipulating such Restitution, can be accepted or carried into Execution without derogating from the Maxim of Law before re- ferred to, touching the inherent and essential Dignity of the Crown of Great Britain ? After an interesting Debate, in which Lord R— rd, the Dukes of R - d, and M r, I and Lord C - m spoke, it was carried in the Negative, 69 to 22. A few Days since the Premier was refused Admittance into the House of Peers as a Com- moner, but told that he might be admitted as a Lord, which he would not accept of. A Correspondent, on observing that Lord Mansfield is appointed Speaker of the House of Lords in the Absence of the Lord Chan- cellor, desires to know whether the present is not the first instance of there being two Speak- ers of that House at one Time ? It is said that the Salary of 5000l. per Ann. is still continued to Lord Mansfield, as Speaker of the House of Lords. It is again reported, that the Duke of Glou- cester it indefatigable in endeavouring to bring about a Reconciliation between the present con- tending Parties, which, it is said, is at the Re- quest of a Great Personage. It it said, that the Reason of a certain Great S y't not choosing to be in the Southern Department, which was first offered him, was, that in that Case he must correspond with several old Acquaintances in a neighbouring Kingdom, where he was formerly Vice Roy, which would subject him to be reminded of several Promises made to them of Services, both public and private, which he has hitherto thought it pru- dent to forget. A Correspondent, in the present State of po- litical Controversy, desires we would recom- mend a certain witty Peer's Example to the Public, who, whenever a Tale is told him, claps his Hand upon one Ear, in order, as he humourously confesses, to reserve it for the opposite Party, very properly reminding him- self of the old Proverb, that one Story is good still another is told. It is confidently reported, that the Gentle- men of the Alley have a Scheme under Con- sideration, which will prevent the Possibility of Lame Ducks for the future. This, it is said, is to insist upon every Broker's naming his Principal at the Time of buying, and thereby giving the Seller an Opportunity of judging for himself how far his Property may be safe. To avoid the Consequences, however, of disco- vering Secrets, the Seller is to be excluded the Alley, if he reveals the Name of any Principal who wishes to be concealed in the Course of the Transaction. G— t, we are assured, have resolved, so soon as they have completed their Military and Naval Schemes, to turn their Attention to the already overgrown Revenue of a certain great Company. A Resolution which has so far trans- pired, though in Embryo, as to cause an uni- versal Convulsion in that powerful Body. Three Gentlemen are expected from India in the Spring; one of whom is said to have made Half Million of Money in ten Years, and the two others 300,000l. each. The Commissioner of Bankrupt, for whom the Lord Ch r displaced his Nephew, owed his Success with the D — e of C d to the Interest of his Wife, who is fortunate enough to visit Mrs. B , of Hatton Gar- den. It it generally imagined that Lord Cam- den, in " a similar Cause," would have behaved unpardonably. Notwithstanding the late Convention, the most sage Politicians are of Opinion that a War with Spain is inevitable. Letters from Berlin, dated January 28, ad- vise, that that Morning died, almost suddenly, Sir Andrew Mitchel, Minister Plenipotentiary from England to the King of Prussia. This Day a Court of Common Council was held at Guildhall, to settle the several Com- mittees for the Year ensuing. At this Meet- ing the further Consideration of the Motion made in the last Court for prosecuting the se- veral Magistrates who should back Press War- rants, and the Constables who should execute them, was postponed till the next Court of Common Council, and every Member was de- sired to prepare himself to give his Opinion upon the Subject. Mr. Alderman Harley has engaged to meet Mr. Wilkes in Support of the Legality of such Warrants. A Gentleman who has served above thirty Years in the Navy, though now only upon a Lieutenant's Half- Pay, making Application the other Day for the Command of a small Vessel, was informed, that it was already given away, at the Solicitation of a certain illustrious Duke, to a young Fellow, who was then to make his second Voyage in Character of a Captain. Yesterday there was an exceeding grand Masquerade Ball at Mrs. Cornelly's, in Soho Square, at which their Royal Highnesses the Dukes of Gloucester and Cumberland were present, and a very numerous Company of the Nobility and Gentry; as also the Imperial, Danish, Hanoverian, and other Foreign Ministers. The Duke of Bolton, in an Old Woman, sustained his Character with much Humour. Mr. Vaughan supported the Coun- try Farmer with vast Pleasantry, and an uni- form Adherence to Nature. Mr. Webster, in the Character of Guiderus in Cymbeline, a Masque greatly admired. Mr. J. Goodaker, gave great Satisfaction ( by the Bulls he made) in the Dress of an Irish Haymaker. A Friar, whose Face was the Picture of Luxury and Voluptuousness, was incessantly preaching up Penitence and Abstinence. The extraordinary Appearance of one Mask ( Colonel Luttrell) gave very high Offence to the Ladies; and he was not only pretty warmly rallied, but reproved : He appeared as a dead Corpse, in a Shroud, and walking strange Powers, that give a dead Corpse Leave to walk!) his Coffin, decorated with all its so- lemn Ornaments. On the Front was passed the following Inscription : Mortals, attend! this pale and ghastly Spectre, Three Months ago was plump and shout as Hector ; Cornely's, Almack's, and the Cotterie, Have now reduced me to the Thing you see. Oh ! shun harmonic Routs and midnight Revel, Or you and I will soon be on a Level. One Lady gave the Colonel an excellent sa- tiric Stroke. Says she, " Indeed, Colonel, you may aptly compare yourself to Hector, who have found the Means to hector a whole County out of its Representative ; but your Character of To- night will no Doubt reconcile you to every Freeholder of Middlesex; for you are certainly now the Representative of what they most heartily wish you the Reality." Among the Company were also the follow- ing characters: A Fryar with an excellent Mask, and a well- dressed Lady Abbess; a Spa- niard in scarlet Satin, with brown Fur Edgings, had a good Effect, though improper for his Climate; a Madman with a four- square Hat ornamented with Straw, his Woollen Mantle had the nine of Diamonds on his Shoulders, and to his Belt hung a large Horn ; in his Com- pany was often seen an honest Serjeant at Law taking Briefs without taking Fees; a Dutch- man with a Tongue as useless as his Pipe ; two smart Quakers who never felt the Spirit till the Champaign was pushed about ; a gouty Man in an India Night Gown, a good Masque but very noisy; a Contract between a rude, lean Parish Girl, and a well- dressed Lady; a fair Chinese in a scarlet Satin Petticoat and black Silk Cloak, very genteel, and remarkable fine Hair well dressed ; a pretty Milk- Maid with her Pail, in Company with a high- dressed Masque, Arm in Arm; a fat Man, formerly a Seal Graver, now in the Shape of an old cloaked up Bawd; two jolly Sailors in Quest of Company, and another Sailor with his two Girls very happy; a Watchman with a Candle and Lant- horn, crying, " past Twelve o'Clock;" three comical Devils, very tempting, and two dry Devils that every one avoided; a feathered Man ; a tall Punch, known only by his Hump behind and the Buttons before; a very gen- teel young Lady in an old English Dress, bleak Velvet, trimmed with Point Lace; an Indian Hunter; an Indian Huntress, well dressed in blue Satin and Silver, with a Quiver on her Back, and her Bow in her Hand, had a bril- liant Effect; a droll, diminutive, fat Spaniard ; two great Girls, one in a white Frock, with her Doll; a very elegant Lady, in a Parisian Silver Tissue Robe, her Hair and Head remarkably well dressed, was esteemed among the smartest in the House ; a gobbling Countryman very wittily said, he could dance like any Thing ; three Harlequins without Oil in their Joints; a Savoyard playing Minuets to a very well equipped dancing Bear; two beautiful Novices, in white Silk, were deservedly admired for the Neatness of their Dress, and Comeliness of their Persons, and termed by many the Angels of the Place in Opposition to the Devils before- mentioned; a very droll Woman, with blue Stockings and scarlet Clocks; the Figure of Tragedy was rich, graceful, and becoming, but surprized several to see her in Company with a Barber ; Sorrow and Joy, expressed by Scarlet and Black; a dull Hermit and Pilgrim ; a Cricket Player; a very fat running Footman ; a Light- Horseman ; a little Merlin ; a Wag- goner ; a Character who came in Forma Pau- peris in the Character of Jerry Sneak, so thin that he could creep through a Gold Ring, was so swelled by Morning, and so unruly, that they could not force him out of the great Gates, after assuming the Character of Colonel Bully. It was observed that the Men in general ad- dressed the Devils more than the Angels; and one, noticing that he had not heard one smart Saying, another replied, " It was a Miracle if he had, as none was said." The following Anecdote may be depended on A few Days since a Lady ( Mrs. S.) who is called a Woman of Spirit, ordered an elegant Masquerade Habit for the Masquerade at Mrs. Cornelly's, which was brought Home last Sa- turday ; she had surveyed it with Rapture, and thrown it on a Sopha in her Dressing - Room, and went out to invite some of her Inmates to partake of her Joy ; soon after her Departure, an honest Tradesman came with his Bill; he had at different Times called, for twelve Months past, on the same Errand, but to no Purpose; he now asked for the Lady's Husband, who hap- pened to be at Home, and who is a Man of great Humanity, although of a humorous Turn. On hearing his Tale, the Gentleman took him to his Wife's Dressing Room, " My Friend, ( says he) I have no Money by me; but take this Fool's Coat ( giving him the Masquerade Dress) you will, at this Time, sell it for more than will discharge your Bill." The Tradesman walked off highly pleased. The Lady has taken to her Bed with Vexation. Extras of a Letter from Cambridge, Feb. 4. " This Afternoon came on the Election in the Senate- House, for a Member to represent this University in Parliament, in the room of Sir William De Grey, the present Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, when Richard Croftes, Esq; was elected. A sudden Opposition was raised this Morning in Favour of Dr. Wynne, Fellow of Trinity- Hall, and Chancellor of Durham, for whom a much greater Number of Gentlemen, unsolicited, appeared, than could have been expected, from so unexpected an Event; for upon calling up the Votes, there appeared for Mr. Croftes, 76, for Dr. Wynne, exactly 45." A Letter from St. Nicat in Cornwall, dated the 31st of January, says, " with great Dif- ficulty I got Home, for never was the like Quan- tity of Snow seen in Cornwall before; the Co- roner has been fetched to seven Men in a Day, found dead under the Snow; and there is not yet any palling the Western Places of that Part of Cornwall." .

Leghorn, January 16. WE learn from Genoa that the British Consul who resides there, received a Courier the 13th Instant from Turin, with Dispatches for the Se- nate, by which the King of Eng- land desired to know, whether in Case he should be engaged in a War with Spain, the English Ships might be permitted to come into the Ports of the Republic. The Senate answered that it could not consent to it, on Account of its Connections with Spain and France. Accord- ingly the Genoese have ordered their Coasts to be put in a good State of Defence. Marseilles, Jan. 18. We hear that the Rea- son of the Embargo which has been laid on all the Ships in the Alicante is, that 3000 Men might be transported to Majorca, where 9000 are al- ready arrived.

[ Thus far Gazette ] Yesterday, in the Upper Assembly, the Duke of Bolton moved, " That an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, to desire that he will be graciously pleased to give Directions that these may be laid before this House Co- pies of all the Orders and Instructions which were given to the Officer who first; took Posses- sion, in his Majesty's Name, of Falkland's Island, and to all Commanders of such of his Majesty's Ships or Vessels as were employed at the said Island, during the whole Time the same was in the Possession of the Crown of Great Britain, as far as such Orders and In- struction relate to Falkland's Island only. — It was carried in the Negative, 57 against 22.— The principal Speakers were the Duke of Bol- ton, Lord Chatham, Lord Sandwich, Duke of Athol, Duke of Richmond, Lord Halifax, & c. We hear that the Motion made by Sir Geo. Saville, in the Lower Assembly, on Thursday, was, That Leave be given to bring in a Bill for the more effectually securing the Rights of the Electors of Great Britain, with Respect to the Eligibility of Persons to serve in Parlia- ment. The House divided, Ayes 103, Noes 167. The principal Speakers were Sir George Saville, the Attorney General, the Solicitor General, Serjeant Glynn, Mr. Charles Fox, and some others. The House rose about Eight o'Clock. We are informed that Mr. Alderman Harley has promised the Ministry an Address from the City, approving of the late infamous Conven- tion with Spain. The following is a Copy of the Resolutions of the Society termed the Friends of Freedom, held on Wednesday at the Standard Tavern: " That the Society of the Friends of Freedom do thoroughly approve of the Conduct of John Wilkes, Esq; and think him entitled to their warmest Thanks, for his continued Attention to the public Welfare ; that the Thanks of this Society be returned to Mr. Serjeant Glynn, for his Heady Perseverance in the Cause of public Liberty, and for his Regard to this Society, testified by Letter." The unexpected Appointment of Lord Mans- field to the Chair in the Upper House, gives great Scope for political Speculation. Thursday Night Mr. Wedderburn, and Mr. Whateley, divided with the Minority. A few Days since the Premier was refused Admittance into the House of Peers as a Com- moner, but told that he might be admitted as a Lord, which he would not accept of. The enormous Sum of 8o, oool. issued from the Treasury in exact Sums of 500I. each, looks as if we were really in a State of Decay, for it borders on Corruption. Orders are given for the Court's going into Mourning on Sunday next, the 10th Instant, for her late Royal Highness the Infanta, Prin- cess- Mary- Frances- Dorothy, third Daughter of the King of Portugal. Yesterday Sir William Stephenson and Mr. Alderman Peers, with a Committee of the Com- mon Council, attended by Mr. Remembrancer, presented a Petition to the House of C. for Leave to import Wheat from America Duty free. The Committee met Yesterday to carry into Execution the Motion of the Court of Com- mon- Council, respecting the erecting a Statue Guildhall, of the late William Beckford, Esq; when they agreed for the same with Mr. Moore, agreeable to the Election of the former Committee, and directed the same to be com- pleted with as much Expedition as the Nature of the Work would admit. It is said that the Checks the Tide has re- ceived from the Increase of Bridges upon the River Thames, will make it absolutely neces- sary to improve the Bed, and remove every possible Obstruction of Sand Banks, & c. the ensuing Summer, which will at least furnish no inconsiderable Employment for our industrious Poor. We are informed that some of the leading Directors of the East India Company, influ- enced by a certain Nabob, and actuated by their own selfish Views, are going to petition for a Bill in Parliament, in order to enable the Company to keep up a standing Army of three thousand Men, in these Kingdoms, even with- out the Clauses of annual Restrictions, which have been hitherto constantly provided by the Mutiny Act. The Vigour with which the warlike Prepa- rations were carrying on at the Dock- Yards, is not yet in the least Degree relaxed. They write from Leghorn that the Spaniards are enlisting foreign Sailors in all the Sea Ports of Italy for the Service of their Fleets. The 31st and 61st Regiments of Foot have received Orders to embark for Minorca, toge- ther with the second Battalion of the Royals, to relieve three Regiments on Duty there, that are soon expected home. Extract of a Letter from Philadelphia, Dec. 6. " Capt. Eve, from the Bay of Honduras, informs, that about six Weeks ago, a Spanish Pettianger, with four swivel Guns and about eighteen Men, from Baccalar, went to an Island in the Bay called Ambergia, burnt several small Houses, and carried off a Negro, under Pre- tence that the English had no Right to cut Wood there." Letter from Kingston, Jamaica, Oct. 27. " On Tuesday last the Honourable Assembly of this Island met; when his Excellency Go- vernor Trelawney opened the Session with a Speech; in which he informs them, that he shall direct a State of the Forts and Fortifi- cations to be laid before them, which he re- commends to their most serious Consideration; and adds, that he doubts not that they will raise for these and other Exigencies of Govern- ment such Supplies as they shall judge necessary for the Honour and Safety of the Island." Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Feb. 7. " Advice is just received at this Port for the following Ships to be got ready for the West- Indies, under the Command of Admiral Rod- ney, viz. Princess Amelia, of 80 Guns, Capt. Marshall; Arrogant 74, Capt. Moore; Corn- wall 74, Capt. Lloyd ; Worcester 64, Capt. Hughes; Achilles 60, Capt. Wheelock; Firm 64, Capt. Rushworth ; and the Buckingham of 64 Guns. The Grosvenor and Glatton East- Indiamen are sailed from St. Helen's." Yesterday Morning John Taylor, Serjeant of the Grenadier Company of the Royal Scots, was brought to the Bar of the King's Bench, Westminister- Hall, when Lord Mansfield sum- med up the whole of the Cause; by which it appeared, that the Prisoner had been three Times assaulted, without any Provocation, tur- ned out of the House, and called by the most opprobrious Names; and farther, that when out in the Street, he was pursued and attacked by two Men, before he offered to draw his Sword ; from which Circumstances he appeared to be only guilty of Manslaughter. The Court were unanimous in the same Opinion, and the Serjeant was ordered to be burnt in the Hand behind the Bar. At the Soho Masquerade on Wednesday Night, a Quarrel happened between two Gen- tlemen, the one a young Baronet, and the other an Officer in the Guards; the former insisting on seeing a young Lady's Face, lifted up her Masque, and the Officer telling him the young Lady was under his Care and Protection, Words arose between them, when the Officer gave him a severe Drubbing for his Insolence. We are well informed that the Conductress of a Certain fashionable House of Pleasure, was told, the other Day, from the Bench of Justices, that the next Time she offended in the like Manner, she might ( pursuant to an Act of Parliament) depend on being conducted to Bridewell. From a Gentleman who was lately at Berlin, we have the following authentic Anecdote — About three Years ago, an English Ship waiting for a Cargo at Dantzic, one of the Sailors going on Shore to amuse himself, was trepanned and carried off into the Prussian Territories, where he was forced to enlist, in one of the Prussian Regiments as a common Soldier. In this Situa- tion poor Jack remained a whole Year, in Despair of obtaining his Liberty, after which he pined exceedingly. At length, however, hav- ing the good Fortune to be stationed in a Town near the Sea Coast, he met a Countryman ( a Sailor) with whom he had an Opportunity of conferring; and it was resolved that Jack should write a Letter to the King of England, from whom he was sure of Redress, which his Brother Tar promised on his Arrival in Eng- land to deposit carefully in the Post Office. The Epistle was conceived in Terms truly cha- racteristic of the English Tar. — He begins by telling his Majesty that he was bred up a Sai- lor from his Childhood ; that he was quite sa- tisfied with his Situation and his Master, and unless it was to serve his Majesty he never de- sired to leave him; but about a Year before, the Vessel being at Dantzic, where she waited for her Cargo, he obtained Leave one Day to go on Shore, and the Weather being fine, he had a Mind to take a little Jaunt to see the Country. The Master and Mistress of the Public House where he put up, offering to ac- company him, Jack hired a small Waggon ( which he tells his Majesty is the usual travel- ling Carriage in that Country) and set out with his Party. As he was returning, the Weather being very hot, he stopped at a Pub- lic House to get a little Brandy and Water to drink; here he met two or three Men who complained of the violent Heat, and begged Permission to get upon the Waggon. When they came near the Town, all alighted together, and the Landlord and Landlady walked on while he stayed behind to pay the Waggoner. The Men, whom he had taken up, watching for this Opportunity, which they had con- certed with the Landlord, & c. seized him, tied his Hands, and carried him off in the same Waggon to a neighbouring inland Town, where he was forced to enlist, and immediately set to learn the Exercise. He does not com- plain of bad Treatment, for he says he has learned the Exercise at well as any of them ; he can speak their Language, and while they flog their own Countrymen most cruelly, they give him good Words, and use him civilly ; but for all that he cries all Day, and shall cer- tainly die of Grief in a short Time if not re- lieved. His Father, he tells the King, is a Bricklayer by Trade, but too old to work, lives upon a little Farm with his Mother, and as he is their only Child, it will break their Hearts not to see him again. He wrote two or three Letters to the King of Prussia, requesting that he might be discharged, or taken into his own Regiment of Guards ( as that is preferable to the common Services) but he is sure the King never received his Letters, for he got no An- swer. He says he has nobody to speak English to, so fears he may have forgot a good deal of his own Language, therefore if there are any im- proper Expressions in his Letter, he hopes his Majesty will pardon them. He desires his Ma- jesty will not trouble himself to write on Pur- pose, as he doubts not but he will soon have Occasion to send one of his Servants to Berlin upon his own Business, and hopes he will then give him Instructions to apply for Jack's Dis- charge, who can never be happy unless serving his old Master, or his Majesty, whose faithful Servant he is till Death. In a Postscript he says, he is only 28 Years of Age, well made, five Feet ten Inches high, the only Fault for which they took him; that he was quartered at such Place, in such a Regiment. This Letter fortunately reached the King's Hands, who actually sent it to Sir Andrew Mitchell, with Orders to get him discharged, which was im- mediately done. A poor Woman, a short Time ago, was beg- ging Charity of a Gentleman in the Street, whom she informed, that a Relation of her's lately died, and she imagined had left her a considerable Sum, but that she was so poor as not to be able to seek into it; upon which the Gentleman told her to apply to some Gentle- man in Doctors Commons, and that he would serve her notwithstanding; and, upon an Ap- plication to a Proctor, he looked into the Mat- ter, and found her to be entitled to Ten Thou- sand Pounds. LEFT, at the Rose and Crown Inn ; in Evesham, the 2d of February Instant, a BAY MARK Whoever will come and describe her Marks, proving her to be their own, upon paying all Expenses, may have her again.

Berlin, February 2. YESTERDAY, in the Evening, the Corpse of the late Sir Andrew Mitchell was deposited, in a pri- vate Manner, but with all becom- ing Decency and Decorum, in one of the Vaults of the principal French Church of the Reformed Religion. St. James's, February 11, 1771. His Ma- jesty in Council was this Day pleased to appoint the following Sheriffs, viz. Monmouthshire, Thomas Fletcher, of Mon mouth, Esq. Sussex, Win. Richardson, of Milland, Esq. This Day a Chapter of the most Noble Order of the Garter was held in the Great Council Chamber, when Granville Levison Gower, Earl Gower, being first Knighted with the Sword of State, was afterwards elected, and invested with the Garter, Ribbon, and George, with the usual Solemnities. [ Thus far Gazette. LONDON, Tuesday, Feb. 12. A Motion was Yesterday made in the Upper House, " That an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, that as his Ministry have ac- cepted a Declaration from Spain, for the In- jury done to the Honour of the Crown, he will be graciously pleased to give Orders for recalling the Warrants for pressing Seamen and Seafaring Men ; a Practice which nothing but Necessity can excuse, as being highly inconvenient to ; the Trade of this Kingdom, and bearing hard on one of the most useful Orders of his Majesty's Subjects." After some Debate it was proposed to withdraw the lotion, and the three Secretaries of State ac- quiesced in it; but Lord Gower stood up and said, " The House was in Possession of the " Motion, and it should not be withdrawn." Lord Suffolk supported Lord Gower. The three Secretaries of State, ( who it seems are no Ministers) then followed Lord Gower ; and a Negative was put upon the Motion, without a Division. The principal Speakers were the Duke of Richmond, Lord Chatham, Duke of Bolton, Lord Halifax, & c. To- morrow is the Day fixed for taking the Spanish Papers into Consideration in the Lower Room of a certain Assembly. The House of Peers it adjourned till Thurs- day next. Extract of a Letter from Lord WEYMOUTH to MR. HARRIS, dated St. James's, the 17th of October, 1770. " His Majesty cannot accept, Under a Con- vention, that Satisfaction to which he has so just a Title without entering into any Engage- ments to procure it. The Idea of his Majesty's becoming a contracting Party upon this Oc- casion, is entirely foreign to the Case; for, having received an Injury, and demanded the most moderate Reparation of that Injury his Honour will permit him to accept, that Repa- ration loses its Value, if it is to be conditional, and to be obtained by any Stipulation what- soever on the Part of his Majesty." The Conspiracy formed between the Mar- quis de Grimaldi, the Head of the Spanish Ministry, and the Duke de Choiseul, to in- volve Europe in a general War, was the real Cause of the Disgrace of the latter. It was agreed between the two Ministers, that the Negotiation with England should be protracted till a French Army of forty thousand Men could be got ready to march into Brabant. The Count de Stainville, Choiseul's Brother, was to have the Command, and to carry a Re- quisition, that the United Provinces should immediately become Parties in the War on the Side of France ; in case of a Refusal, he was to commence Hostilities. The States, upon the Discovery of this secret Machination, ap- plied immediately to the King of Prussia, whose Minister was the first Person who carried the Designs of Choiseul to the King, his Master. Louis, who is naturally an Enemy to Blood- shed, preferred the turning out of his Minister to a War. Orders are issued from the Admiralty to the Marine Officers who are recruiting, to take such Recruits as shall offer of the Size of five Feet four inches. If this Order had been given at the Beginning of the present Disturbance with Spain, some Hundreds of fine young Fel- lows might have been picked up and sent on board the Fleet, which is in great Want of that useful Corps to complete it for Sea. Lord Howe has declined accepting of the Mediterranean, or any other Command, in Times like these which look so much like Peace. Sir G S ' s Motion last Week was in Effect nothing more than to obtain it to be recorded on she Journals of a certain Assembly, that Expulsion does not mean Incapacitation; and it was treated, we understand, in that Sense by those who spoke to it. We hear that the greatest Care is taken to prevent a Great Personage reading the Letters of Junius. We hear that the Sutton Family, who have made such extensive Fortunes by the Success of Inoculation, are going to erect a Monument in Compliment to the Memory of Lady Mary Wortley Montague, the first Introducer of this System into Europe. We are assured that a certain Scotch Banker, who has been of late very much a Child of Fortune, has from his Intimacy with the Pre- mier, during the late pacific Negotiation, made no less a Sum than 65,0001. in the Alley. An Edict is published in Portugal, prohibit- ing the Importation of English Hats, after the 10th of March, and a Prohibition of Stockings, both Silk and Worsted is soon expected. Extras of an authentic Letter from Paris, Feb. I. " War between Spain, Us, and England, appeared lately almost unavoidable ; the Storm seems to disperse for the present, but it is feared that in the general Confusion of Europe fresh Broils may arise ; for it was much against our Will, and nothing but our own present unhappy Situation compelled us to contribute to the restoring Tranquility between the con- tending Parties. " Our Marine increases apace, and will shortly be upon a very respectable Footing We then shall once more try who shall be Mas- ters of the Sea." Letter from the Hague, Feb. 5. " The last Letters from Vienna confirm the Accounts we have received from Constantino- ple, advising that there is no longer any Sign of accomplishing a Peace between the Turk and the Russians, the Grand Signor having haughtily rejected as inacceptable the Condi- tions proposed by the Court of Petersbourg the Substance of which is assured to be as fallows : " I. The Liberty of a free Navigation in the Black Sea. 2. The Cession of all Crimea for ever. 3. The Indépendance of the Tar- tars, who are no longer to be subject to the Ottoman Porte in any Degree. 4. The Ces- sion of Moldavia, Walachia, and Bessarabia which Provinces however the Russians do not intend to take Possession of in their own Right but will transfer them to two other foreign Princes, who are not named, 5. The Pay- ment o f twenty Millions of Rubles to re- imburse the Russians the Expense they have been at on Account of the present War. " These Demands on the Part of Russia so exasperated the Grand Signor, that he rejected them with Disdain, and determined to risque another Campaign, and to command his Army in Person. These Letters add, that three Camps are to be formed next Spring, one near Luxembourg, another near Nieustadt, and the third between Baden and Pest in Hungary, the last of which, it is said, is to Consist of between 40 and 50,000 Men, with a proportionable Train of Artillery ; from all which it is ap- parent that the Empress Queen has some im- portant Stroke in View, though at present it not known." A Geographical Correspondent, who is Well acquainted with thé Situation of our much- talked- of Settlement at Falkland's Island, known by the Name of Port Egmont, so named from Lord Egmont's being then at the Head of the Admiralty, sincerely wishes, that an Enter- prize so romantic had never been concerted; and that the wise Planners of it had been at the Bottom of the Atlantic before they had brought on so futile a Scheme that must have cost Great Britain, first and last, Three Millions of Mo- ney. Our Correspondent further acquaints us, that at the Back of the above Fort there is a Chain of Hills, from the Advantage of which Eminence, two or three hundred Men can, at any Time, dispossess us in a few Days, by playing from a Battery de Revers, of no more than fix Guns, as the Fort cannot bring one Gun to bear that Way, capable of making the least Defence. Mrs. C y, who the other Day was con- victed before certain Magistrates in the Penalty of Fifty Pounds, for suffering an Opera to be played in her House without a legal License, has appealed, we hear, to the Quarter Sessions from the Justices Conviction. The celebrated Charlotte Hayes has been subpoenaed to be examined as a Witness on Be- half of Lady Grosvenor. This Cause will be finally concluded next Term. On Friday last the Complaint of Mrs. S was opened against her Husband in a Great Ecclesiastical Court. The principal Charge against him was, that he was incapable of performing Matrimonial Rites according to the Law of Nature. The Depositions furnished great Entertainment to the Gentlemen of the Long Robe. It seems the Lady was a Widow with a Jointure of 900I. per Annum, was in Possession of a Town and Country House, ele- gantly furnished, with an Equipage, & c. Mr. S was a young Man of small Fortune, and plyed the Widow so closely, that she soon con- sented to give her Hand in Marriage. On the Wedding Day they went with a Number of Friends to Salt- Hill, in order to celebrate their Nuptials, and on the Lady retiring after Sup- per, the Bridegroom followed her, and after expressing great Uneasiness, explained the Cold- ness of his Disposition, on which the Lady de- clared, that as long as he behaved with Polite- ness and good Humour to her, she should never publish the Secret he had trusted her with.— About two Years elapsed, during which Time they to all Appearance lived very happily, when Mr. S ( as it is said) began to use his Wife with great Neglect, and sometimes beat her ; on which she discovered her Situation to a Relation, who advised her to apply for a Divorce, which she has accordingly done.-— This is the Lady's Part of the Story. — Mr. S--------- , on the other Hand, denies her Charge, offers to prove the Falsity of them, by an Ap- peal to any of the Faculty, and accuses her of many Misdemeanors. The Matter is deferred to a future Day; when, no Doubt, Justice will be done to all Parties. The Inhabitants of the Town of Greenwich have for some Time past been alarmed with the Account of a Ghost, or rather a superna- tural Noise, which makes great Disturbance in the House of a Petty Officer of a Man of War, in Cock- Yard. His Daughter, a Girl about thirteen Years of Age, is the most affected by it ; whatever Room she lies in, the Noise pur- sues her, and the Pillow and Bolster are fre- quently, in the Sight of Numbers of Persons, by some unseen Agent, drawn from under her Head, and forcibly thrown upon her Face, Strange Sounds are also heard at the same Time in the lower Part of the House, particu- larly in the Cellar, where the Spirit seems to labour very hard. The Affair is similar, in some Respects, to that of the famous Cock Lane Ghost ; but the Girl does not accuse any Person, on the Information of her secret Ac- quaintance, or pretend to know any Cause for her being haunted ; she puts her Hands out of Bed, and does every Thing required by the Auditors, to prevent any Suspicion of Impo- sture, and seems at Times in great Agonies from the Visitation of this extraordinary Dis- order. Sunday Night the Frost was so intense, that the Thermometer was below 1 Deg. 12 Dig. at about Eleven o'Clock. And Yesterday Morn- ing the Barometer was two Degrees lower than has been known for these nine Years. CHESTER CIRCUIT. The Hon. John Morton, and Taylor White, Esqrs. Montgomeryshire, Wednes.

EARLY INTELLIGENCE, received from our Correspondents in London, dated Wednesday, February 13. We are told some very extraordinary News is expected every Day from the Continent of Germany, but what that may be, puzzles our ablest Politicians, so secret and inscrutable is the King of Prussia in all his grand Designs. As the late Overtures for an Accommodation between the Empress of Russia and the Grand Signor were received by the latter Sovereign with high Contempt and Indignation, it makes the political World imagine that some new Powers on the Continent have already de- clared in his Favour, or, at least, that some Diversion will be made by some of the German Powers to draw the Russian Forces out of the Turkish Empire. We hear, by a Letter from Paris, that the King of France has sent the Prince of Conti, Duke of Orleans, and several other Princes of the Blood, into Exile, for not acknowledging the new Parliament in France. Yesterday the Royal Assent passed the Great Seal for the Confirmation of the Right Rev. William Markham, Doctor of Laws, Lord Bishop of Chester. And Yesterday a Commendam passed the Seal, to empower the Right Rev. the Bishop of Chester to hold in Commendam with the said Bishopric, the Deanery of Christ Church, in Oxford. The Oxford Circuit is not yet fixed. Yesterday Mr. Alderman Wilkes set out for Lynn, in Norfolk, to take up his Freedom for that Borough. The Snow is so very deep between Kentish Town and Hampstead, that the Stages which used to go twice a Day to those Places, are now quite stopped. Early Yesterday Morning a poor ancient Wo- man, supposed to have perished through the Extremity of the Cold and Hunger, was found dead in Upper Moorfields. And Yesterday Morning, a Woman with a young Child at her Breast, were both found frozen to Death in Denmark - street, St. Giles's. Above seventeen Persons with broken Legs, Arms, & c. occasioned by the Slipperiness of the Weather, have been carried to St. Bartho- lomew's Hospital since Saturday Morning. WORCESTER, Thursday, February 14. Yesterday one Nicholas, a Gardener, war publicly whipped in our Corn Market, by Or- der of the Mayor and Justice on Monday last, for Healing a Coat from out of the Shop of Mr. Sheriff, near the College Grates, in this City. Last Week the Lady of Sir Walter Blount, Bart, of Mawley Hall, near Cleobury, was safely delivered of a Son, at his House, in Upper Grosvenor - Street, London. A Dispensation has passed the Seal to enable the Reverend Nowess Lloyd, M. A. late of St( John's College, Oxford, Chaplain to the Right Hon. Lord Craven, to hold the Rectory of In- borne, to which he was lately presented, in the County of Berks, with the Rectory of Hinton, in the County of Wilts, and Diocese of Salis- bury, worth 150l. per Annum. Last Week died at Shrewsbury, Mr. William Beech, formerly an eminent Apothecary of that Place. The Assize of Bread is at follows, viz.

WHAT an excellent Agreement have you drawn us into! You took an Island from us by Force and open Hostility, put us to an immense Expense in Military Preparations to do ourselves Justice, and then have made up the Matter with us, by giving us a Declaration, which is no Sort of Satisfaction. Span. I have made you more Satisfaction than I was empowered to do, or than I wish I had done. Eng. More Satisfaction ! Sir! Why, you have made us none at all. Your Declaration is rather a fresh Insult upon the British Crown, than any Reparation for the Dishonour you had done it. Span. Is not a Disavowal of Mr. Buccarelli's taking that Island a prodigious Condescension in the Crown of Spain ? It is such a Condescension, Sir, that neither the Entreaties, nor the Threats of your Minister, should have prevailed upon me to have granted, had it not been for the over- bear- ing Influence of France, and for which I may probably be made to answer. Eng. How can you call a Disavowal of Mr. Buccarelli's taking that Island, a Satisfaction to the Crown of Great Britain ; when, at the same Time, you insist upon your Right to it, and consequently to take it again at a fitter Opportunity ? Span. Is not a Disavowal of the taking that Island, to which we know we have an undoubted Right, a greater Condescension and Satisfaction than if we had not such Right? Eng. But, Sir, we positively deny you have any such Right; and your insisting upon it in your Declaration that you have, hath left the Door open for a future Quarrel on that Occasion; and which, we suppose, you will begin, as soon Fiance shall be ready to back you in it. Span. You may suppose what you please, we are not to answer for your Suppositions. Our Right to that Island is just and well known to the whole World ; and you yourself have in Part ad- mitted it, by leaving it open to a future Discussion. Eng. This is a fine Satisfaction truly ! You could not prevail upon Fiance to join with you in a War against us at present; and being sensible of your liability to contend with us alone, you have consented to give up the Place, but at the same Time have insisted upon your Right to it. By which, it is very apparent, you intend to as- sert your Right to it, and commence Hostilities again, as soon as France shall be in a Condition to support you in the War. And can you think, Sir, that this is maintaining the Honour of the British Crown ? Span. It was not my Business to maintain that; it is enough for me, if I have supported the Ho- nour of the Crown of Spain. Worcester, January 30, 1771. WHEREAS the Matters in the Glove Manufactory in this City, have been much injured by the Work People embez- zling and selling their Gloves, Leather, and Lea- ther Shreds; Notice is hereby given, That a Re- ward of FIVE GUINEAS will be paid by the Steward of the Company, to any one who shall impeach, to Conviction, the Embezzeler or Seller of Gloves, Leather, or Leather Shreds: And also the same Reward will be given for impeach- ing the Buyers or Receivers of Gloves, Leather, or Leather Shreds. By an Act of Parliament of the twenty - second of George the Second, it is therein enacted, " That any Work People who embezzle, purloin, sell, or secrete any Leather of his, her, or their Master, shall be publicly whipped for the first Of- fence : And any Person buying, receiving, ac- cepting, or taking by Way of Gift, Pawn, Pledge, Sale, or Exchange, or in any other Manner what- ever, from any Workmen, any Leather, 0n Con- viction, forfeits the Sum of Twenty Pounds; on Default of Payment to be whipped in public at the Market Place."

ROTTEN SHEEP cured, By Hervey's Inestimable Powders, THE Virtues of which have been of infinite Service in every Grazing County in the Kingdom, from the Proprietor's own Ap- plication of it ( for eight Years) on the fair Terms of No Cure no Pay.

The great Success attending it in this confined State has induced him to make it public, and distribute it round the Country; and as the late wet Season is likely to greatly injure those useful Animals, by the Application of the above Pow- ders, the Graziers may be convinced of their Effi- cacy ; proper Certifications of which will be given by reputable Persons from most Parts of the King- dom, in the St. James's Chronicle, Lloyd's Even- ing- Post, and several other Papers.

THE very salutary Effects of the BEAUME DE VIE, and the consequent large Demand, having prompted avaricious and fraudulent Persons to 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 empowered MR. Thomas Becket, one of the Proprietors, to sign his Name to each Bottle, and have also appointed W. Nicell, 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.

VELNOS' Vegetable SYRUP: An acknowledged SPECIFIC in all Venereal and Scorbutic Cases. THIS it the Medicine so long wished for by the renowned Boerbaave, Sydenham, and Others. IT has undergone the severest Examination by the Royal College of Physicians at Paris, and is by them pro- nounced to be an absolute Specific in every Stage of these Disorders. It is solely composed from Herbs and Plants without a single Particle of Mercury ; is very agreeable in its Operation, and effects a certain. Cure in the most desperate and complicated Cases, where the Use of Mer- curials is asserted, by the most skilful of the Faculty, to be not only ineffectual, but pernicious. In the most desperate Scorbutic Cases ( where the Sea Water and other Medicines have been used in vain) the Syrup has effected a radical Cure. An Alteration for the better is visible after a few Days Use ; and it is peculiar to the Operation of this Medicine, that at the same Time it eradicates the Disease, and acts as a powerful Restorative. The Physician, who now offers it to the Public, be- sides having minutely observed its Effects during a long Residence at Paris, is further convinced, by daily Ex- perience, of its Superiority over every other known Me- dicine ; he therefore trusts to the Candour of the Public, for distinguishing between the Nostrums frequently im- posed on them, and a Medicine thus authenticated by the Testimony of Persons of the first Rank. It is sold in Bottles, 10s. 6d. each, at Dr. Burrow's House, opposite the Print, of Orange's Coffee House, in the Hay Market, London ; sold also by Fletcher and Hodson, in Cambridge ( who are appointed Sole Agents for vending this Medicine in the Country); Mr. Raikes, Gloucester ; Mr. Pugh, Hereford ; Messrs. Pearson and Aris, Birming- ham ( Mr. Taylor, Kidderminster ; Mr. Jackson, Oxford ; Mr. Eddowes, Shewsbury ; Mr. Taylor, Stafford, Mrs. Thurstans, Wolverhampton ; and by the Printer and Dis- tributors of this Journal. Where also may be had, A Dis- tortation on its Nature and Effects, with an Account of its Examination by the Royal College of Physicians, and a Va- riety of extraordinary Cures, properly attested. Any Person doubtful of the Authenticity of this Medicine, may see, in the Hands of Dr. Burrows, such Testimonial's as cannot be disputed, the authenticated Certi- ficates by two public Notaries, countersigned by his Britan- nic Majesty's Ambassador at the Court of France. ESSENCE of WATER- DOCK, For the SCURVY. IF there be any yet afflicted with this Disor- der, who have not tried the Water- Dock, whether from Inattention, or from the supposed Discredit of ad- vertised Medicines ( though when the Author is known, and capable, that ought to cease) it may be proper to remind them that this is the Season for a perfect Cure, The Certainty of Effects, even in the most confirmed Ca- ses, ate sufficiently known, from those of Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Garne, Sir Roger Twynsden, and many more, and its Innocence is such, that Infants take it in a proper Dose. There ate many other Persons of Distinction, in whose Faces the good Effect of this Medicine may be seen ; though it were ill to revive the Memory of a past Disorder, by mentioning their Names: This may be said with Truth and Safety, None need fear a Cure from it because they have taken other Things in vain.

Berrow, Printer, in Worcester, whom I have appointed my Agent for the Sale of my Medicines in Worcester, and Places adjacent ; and all Persons desirous of vending them may be supplied by him on advantageous Terms.
