Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, May 2, 1771. Numb. 4012. SATURDAY'S POST. Litter from Ougly in Asia ( a Dutch Comptoir) to a Merchant in London, dated Sept. 7, 1770. THE Month of March has been nothing but a Series of Calami- ties and Misfortunes. The great Heat and Drought have dried up all the Wells and Ponds, and Thousands perished for Want of Water to quench their Thirst. Others, to prevent so fad a Calamity, retired to the Borders of the Ganges, where they met with another Misfortune as great, a general Dearth, by the Fruits of the Earth being burnt up ; this drove them to seek Assistance among the European Establishments; but the same Calamity haying reached them, they could not assist the Natives, so that the greatest part of these unhappy Emi- - grants perished through mere Want; and the Number was so great, that the Living were not sufficient to bury the Dead; in consequence of which, an Infection spread, and carried off vast Numbers, who had made a small Reserve to eke out a few more miserable Days. " Previous to the above Calamity at Ougly, the Small Pox broke out, and made amazing Ra- - vages, equal almost to the Plague, and there was not one European Family where one or more did not fall a Victim. However, it has since stopped, and none have died of it for these three Weeks." LONDON, Thursday, April, 25. Monday a Motion was made in the Lower As- sembly, to repeal the Acts which was made to pre- vent the stealing Dogs, the Mode of punishment, as prescribed in that Act, being contrary to Prin- ciples of Justice. The Bill to prevent killing Game in the Night, and on Sundays, was also moved to be repealed, nearly the same Kind of Punishment being adopted in both these Acts; there being no Appeal from the Conviction of a Justice, but the supposed Offender may be whipt and imprisoned first, and then appeal to know whether he has been wrongfully whipt or impri- soned, or not: In the one there lies no Appeal; in the other, the Appeal may be brought after the Punishment. The Motions were carried. An Amendment will also be made to the Game Act, whereby it will be enacted, that every Owner of Land, or Farmer who rents to a cer- tain Value, shall have the same Right over and Deputation for Game as the Lord of the Manor. Tuesday the East- India Company's recruiting Bill came under Consideration of the House, when the Motion was made to read it the third Time. Upon a Division there were Ayes 45, Noes 45 : Being equal, the Speaker declared his Vote with the Ayes; aster which the usual Motion took Place, that the Bill do pass. The House divided, the Ayes were 50, Noes 51, consequently the Bill was lost by the Difference of one. it is imagined that most sulutary Bill for pre- venting the Exportation of live Cattle, so warmly and so humanely supported a few Days ago in the Lower Assembly, by a certain patriotic Gentle- man, will be carried into Execution, as the Rea- sons urged in its Favour are utterly unanswerable. The Bill to prevent the counterfeiting Copper Coin, which has passed the Lower House, lets forth the following Particulars: " That the coining or counterfeiting any of the Copper Monies of this Realm, being punishable only as a Misdemeanor, the Practice hereof hath of late Years greatly prevailed, and is liable to increase, to the Prejudice of Trade, and the In- jury of his Majesty's Subjects." " That after the 24th of June, 1771, any Person that shall coin or counterfeit any of the Copper Monies of this Realm, commonly called an Halfpenny or Farthing, every such Person and his Abettors shall be adjudged a Felon; and also that after the Time limited as above, every Person, buying, felling, receiving, or paying any counter- feit Copper Money, not melted down or cut in Pieces at or for a lower Rate or Value than the same by its Denomination, doth or shall import, or was counterfeited, every such Person or Persons shall be adjudged guilty of Felony." " It empowers Justices of the Peace to graut Warrants to search for counterfeit Copper Money, and directs that the same and the Tools and Im- plements used in counterfeiting the same, shall be produced in Evidence against the Persons prose- cuted; and in Case of no Trial, then to be defaced or destroyed, or otherwise disposed of shall be di- recited." Mr. T T declared a few Days since, in a certain Place, that to his certain Know- ledge a considerable Sum had been lately issued from the Ex r in Bank Bills of 100I. each, and that he believed it had been distributed among the Members of that Assembly, in order to procure a Majority in Favour of A n. It is now the Opinion of some Gentlemen in the Law, than the L- d C r will not hold the S — ls much longer. Last Monday Morning, just as the Inhabitants of Portsoken Ward were going to the Tower to present an Address to the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Oliver, the true ministerial Deputy, Philip Grafton, Esq; sent to the Beadle of the Ward, and demanded his Cloak and Mace, that he might net attend the reft of the Gentlemen. They were both delivered to the Messenger, and the Gentlemen want without the Beadle. Out Tuesday, being St. George's Day, the laudable Association of Antigallicans held their anniversary Feast at the Ship Tavern at Ratcliff- Cross. Mr. Alderman Wilkes, the Grand President of this Year, Sir Joseph Mawbey, the Grand President of the last Year, and several other Gentlemen, walked in Procession with the Stewards to Stepney Church, where an excellent Sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Evans, Chaplain to the Lord Mayor. After Divine Service the Gentlemen of the Associ- ation went to the Tower to pay their Compli- ments to the Lord Mayor, and to desire his Lord- ship's Leave to nominate him to the Presidentship for the ensuing Year. The Tower Gates were shut, barred, and bolted against them, and Admittance absolutely refused. The Picket Guard was turned out. Several Parleys ensued, and Messages passed for above Half an Hour between the Governor and the Gentlemen of the Association. There was great Affectation of an Alarm in the Garrison, as if the People meant by Force to release their Magistrates, whom they certainly consider as detained there against: Law. The Concourse of the People was prodigious, and their Acclamations beyond what has been heard on any Occasion. At last it was settled that only twenty Gentlemen should be ad- mitted, and a small Wicket was opened, through which, and between the Guards, they passed to his Lordship's Apartments. Mr. Alderman Wilkes then, in the Name of the Gentlemen, thanked his Lordship, in a short Speech, for the noble Stand he had made in Defence of the Liberties and Constitu- tion of this Country, and desired his Permission to nominate him for the Presidentship of the ensuing Year; to which his Lordship assented. The Asso- ciation then joined again at the Tower Gates, and proceeded through Whitechapel to the Mile- End Assembly Room, where, after the usual Toasts, Sir Joseph Mawbey took Notice, that that Meeting was generally understood to be the most numerous Meeting in the Year of the Freeholders of Middle- sex, and therefore he wished to take their Sense about the Propriety of Mr. Wilkes's being a Candi- date as Sheriff for the County the Midsummer en- suing. He declared that, for his Part, he heartily approved the Measure; for Mr. Wilkes's Conduct had been so consistent and uniform, so invariably directed to great public Purposes, that he wished to have him called forth on every public Occasion, where he might be useful ; that he knew many Per- sons intended to keep him back, not only this Year, on Pretence of the Middlesex Election, but for ever; that they had declared he never should be Sheriff, but he was sure the City and County thought more justly, and would call him forward as a most useful and efficient Man, and that he should be glad to lee the Business of the Middlesex Election in Mr. Wilkes's Hands as Sheriff, for he was satisfied he would do Justice to the Liberties of the Freeholders of that County, and the whole Na- tion, which had been injured in his Person. Af- ter Sir Joseph had finished, two Freeholders desired to know what could be done in Case of Mr. Lut- frequent Opportunities of confirming to him ; and that he expected their Support and Esteem no longer than every Action of his Life proved him their faithful Servant, and the strenuous Assertor to the injured Rights of that County, and of the whole Nation. Mr. Wilkes's Speech was received with general Applause, and every Gentleman present appeared perfectly satisfied. The Question was afterwards put, and carried unanimously, " That Brass Crosby, " Esq; Lord Mayor of the City of London, be " chosen Grand President for the Year ensuing." The Meeting was very numerous, notwithstanding the great Pains taken to keep the Members from attending. We hear that the Kennedies, who are to be transported, the one for Life, and the other for fourteen Years, will carry with them Commissions to produce abroad, as soon as they arrive, the one a Captain's, worth 1000l. and the other a Lieute- nant's, worth 600l. The late Earl of Plymouth, Lord Windsor Baron of Bradenham, Lord Lieutenant of the County of Glamorgan, Custos Rotulorum of the County of Flint, and Constable of the Castle of Flint, was born May 12, 1731, and married Catherine, eldest Daughter of Thomas Lord Ar- cher, by whom he has left Issue, four Sons and four Daughters.

D. late Fellow of Je- sus College, Oxford, and Rector of Stonesfield, in that County. MILITIA For the County of WORCESTER, with the City and County of the City of WORCESTER. THIS is to give Notce, That, in Pursuance of an Order of the Lord Lieu- tenant and Deputy Lieutenants of the said County and City, made at the fourth General Meeting, held on the Thirtieth Day of October last, the Militia Men for the laid County and City are to resort to the City of Worcester, on Monday the Sixth Day of May next, there to be trained and exercised for twenty- eight Days successively; and the Private Mi- litia Men are required to attend at the Town- Hall of the said City, by Ten of the Clock in the Morn- ing, on the said Sixth Day of May next, in order to receive their Arms and Cloathing. Worcester, JOHN THORNELOE, 8th April, 1771. Clerk of the General Meetings. trell's vacating his Seat, or of a Dissolution of Par- liament. James Adair, Esq; then said, that both those Events had been foreseen, that only three new Cases could arise, Mr. Luttrell's vacating his Seat, the Demise of the Crown, 0r the Dissolution of the Parliament; that in the first Case, the Sheriff ought not to obey the Writ, nor call the Freeholders together, there being no legal Vacancy for the County; that as to the two other Cases, the same Events might happen in any Year when Mr. Wilkes was Sheriff as well as the present, and therefore could be no particular Objection to him at this Time; that whenever either of those Events did happen, suppose Mr. Wilkes then Sheriff, some Friend of the Cause and Mr. Wilkes would be found to supply the Vacancy for the Time; that he heartily wished Mr. Luttrell might accept a Place the ensuing Year, and then the Spirit and Fidelity of Mr. Wilkes in their Cause would be shown in its full Force and Strength. When Mr. Adair sat down there was a general Cry of " The Question! the Question!" Sir Joseph Mawbey then said, " As " many as are of Opinion that Mr. Wilkes be a " Candidate for the Office of Sheriff of this County " the Year ensuing, hold up your Hands." Every Hand in the Room was upon this held up. Success to Mr. Wilkes, as Sheriff, was toasted in a Bumper, with three Cheers, and the whole Company pro- mised to support his Election. Mr. Wilkes then thanked the Gentlemen for the honourable Testimony they had given him of their Approbation, and declared that the Public Cause was always nearest his Heart; that he lamented the great Business of the Middlesex Election had so long lain dormant, and seemed to be shamefully neg- lected; that he wished for any Opportunity to re vive it, and should rejoice if that was the Conse- quence of his Sheriffalty ; that so far from betray- ing the Rights of the County, as had been wickedly suggested, he would defend them to the last dying Moment; that if Mr. Luttrell should vacate his pretended Seat, and a new pretended Writ should issue, he would pay no Obedience to it, nor call the County together in Consequence of an Act void in itself, for it must proceed on a false Supposition, on the lying Pretext, of Mr. Luttrell's having a legal Seat in the House of Commons, which no Man could have who was not freely chose by the People; that Mr. Luttrell could not sit as their Representa- tive, the very I lea was insolent; that he was seated there by a manifest Force and Usurpation, by illegal Violence ; that the County and Nation considered Luttrell as having no Seat among the Representa- tives of the Commons of the Realm, and therefore the Pretence of its being vacated was absurd. He likewise mentioned the Care he would take of any Freeholder's Book, complained of the present as exceedingly incorrect and faulty, every Page of which, he said, the Agents of the Ministry had now got by Heart; but he hoped to remedy all the Abuses of it, and to give that additional Security to the Preservation of their Lives and Properties. Mr. Wilkes concluded, that he pledged himself to than for the Preservation of their noblest Liberties, the Rights of Election ; that he perfectly knew the Consequences to himself of such a Contest with the present Majority ; that he wished for that impor- tant Hour; that he would be undaunted in the Sup- pretty little compact Farm, all Freehold, and consisting of Arable, Meadow, and Pasture Ground, lying together within an Ethering, in the Parish of Dodderhill, near Droitwich aforesaid, and contain- ing about thirty computed Acres, well wooded and watered.

Thursday the Higher Assembly concluded their investigation of the embanking Bill, on which they have been employed six Days. Having had fullest Evidence on the Subject and heard Council, they debated the Question in the House, it was carried in Favour of the Embankment for committing the Bill, twenty- nine to four. Thursday, about Five 0' Clock, Mr. Serjeant Glynn presented to the Lower Assembly the Peti- on of Mr. Allen, praying for Justice against the soldiers for the Murder of his Son in St. George's fields, on the 10th of May, 1768. Mr. Serjeant Glynn moved, that the Petition might be brought to the Table. Lord North was very strenuous gainst the Motion, aud said the Soldiers did no ore than they were ordered to do, and that it as too late in the Session for such an Affair to some on : Besides, did they think that a Man should surrender himself, who was charged with Murder ?— Mr Edmund Burke was very warm on Occasion, and condemned, in very severe Terms, the Letters sent by the Lords Weymouth and Barrington. — Mr. Charles Fox said, that if he should attain the high Honours held by Noblemen, he certainly should, in the like Circumstances, take Pattern by their Letters.— Joseph Mawbey said he hoped, that if that incurable Gentleman ever should arrive to such Honours, he would retract his Words, and take arning by those Letters. — Mr Onslow threw out, at Allen's Son was engaged in a Riot, and was busy in insulting the Soldiers. The Petition sets rth, that the Son of the Petitioner was not in Riot, but that it was another Man, who made Escape from the Soldiers. After a long Debate which lasted till Eleven o'Clock, the Question then put, Whether the Petition should be brought up; the House divided, Ayes 35, Noes 158. The Petition, it is said, was drawn up under Inspection of Mr. Serjeant Glynn, Mr. Dow- eswell, Mr. Burke, Sir Joseph Mawbey, and me other Gentleman of the Minority. Mr. Allen aited in the Lobby all the Time to hear the De- rmination of the Affair. Yesterday Mr. Sawbridge made a Motion for eave to bring in a Bill to shorten the Duration Parliaments. He shewed that this Branch of Constitution had been established by our Saxon ncestors, at which Time they had only been nual; that they were set aside 140 Years by Normans; that on their Revival they had ntinued of short Duration ( mostly annual) till Reign of Henry VIII. whose Tyranny was compleat till established by that Long Par- ament; that the next Long Parliament was that ommonly so called, in 1641, who, by establish- their Form of sitting, had brought the greatest estruction on the Constitution. The Pension- Parliament in the Reign Of Charles II. was so productive of bad Consequences to the Con- tution ; to remedy which the Triennial Bill is passed, restraining them to fit no more than Years Duration. This was over- turned by at Breach into the Constitution in George the rst's Reign, the voting themselves septennial, passing the Septennial Bill. Though per- the particular Necessities of the Times ight render such an Act at that Day necessary Rebellion just crushed, and a Pretender to the hrone making it highly improper to call the people together at that Time) yet that Necessity as now at an End, none of those Dangers now nging over it. That the Length of Parliaments gave up that wer which the Constituents ought to have over eir Representatives, that of frequent Exami- ation into their Conduct, and Rejection of them they thought them unworthy. That long Parliaments gave Opportunity to an Intimacy between the Ministers and the embers, always dangerous and destructive to Constitution ; that in shortening the Duration Parliament he should incline to annual, as bject to fewer Objections, in his Opinion, than iennial, but that must be the Subject of future ebates. Messrs. Ald. Townsend, Dempster, O'Turner, aire, & c. & c. supported this Measure; they fre- uently called on Administration to shew any easons why a Bill should not be brought but, to the Amazement of most Members, one Word was uttered by Administration ; most contemptuous Silence was observed. On is great national Question the short Appeal was the Numbers at the Command of the Minister, the only declared Reasons were 105 to 54. So greatly have Administration increased their wer of Late, by an enormous Number of De endants, that above 700,000l. per Annum goes the several Officers concerned in collecting the rious Taxes. Yesterday came on the third Reading of the Bill prevent the Exportation of Corn, when, after a ort Debate, it passed without a Division. Monday last the further Consideration on the nglesea Claim of Peerage came on before the pper Assembly, when, after a very short Debate, ord Wentworth reported from the Committee, at the Claimant had no Right to the Titles, onours, and Dignities, claimed by his Petition. The Business on Thursday about St. George's elds, came on in so sudden a Manner, ( no Notice and Eight o'Clock. The Gentlemen who seceded from the Society at the London Tavern, have formed themselves into a Society. Every Member of the Society enters into an Engagement, as the Touchstone of his Principles, to procure by his Vote, in or out of Parliament, and by every other Means, a Bill to shorten the Duration of Parliaments. They have adopted the Subscriptions for Bingley and the Printers, which were the Cause of the Divi- sions in the late Society of Supporters of the Bill of Rights. Their next Meeting, on Wednesday next, is to be at the Half- Moon Tavern in Cheap- fide. Mr. Ald. Sawbridge in the Chair, Mr. Ald. Oliver is their Treasurer, and Mr. Bodding- ton their Secretary. They do not desire any Sub- scriptions from the Public, but mean to do what public Good they can entire out of their Pockets. They have not even chosen a Name ; and intend only to be known by the good Actions they may perform. They consist at present of about forty Members, and intend to be very careful whom they admit, and for that Purpose have made a Rule that three black Balls in the Ballot shall ex- clude any Person proposed. The Grand Defaulter's celebrated Cub spent, not long ago, a whole Week at the Gaming Ta- ble. He allowed himself no Respite but when he went home to get a clean Shirt. What a j hopeful Legislator ! He is a worthy Companion to his Friend and Confidant, S , who ad- ministered, with all the Forms of religious Cere- mony, the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper to a Dog. Such are the Men who contend for unde- fined Privileges, and send the Magistrates of Lon- don to the Tower. It is confidently said, that in a Conference which the Minister lately had with a great Per- sonage, the latter observed, that he was often admonished in the Papers to consider the Fate of King Charles, and to be aware of it. I will fol- low the Advice, said he, for Charles's Fate was owing to quarrelling with his Parliament, which I never will do. The general Review of the Fleet at Spithead, by a Great Personage, is fixed for the 14th of June next. We are assured that there is to be a mock naval Engagement at Spithead, at the approaching Re- view, for the Entertainment of his Majesty. His Majesty has been pleased, in Consideration of the Dearness of Provisions, & c. to order that the Deduction of one Shilling in the Pound, which has hitherto been made by the Paymaster- General of the Army from the Pay of the Foot Soldiers, be remitted ; as also the Deduction to the Regimental Paymaster and Surgeon, the bet- ter to enable them to provide Necessaries. It is said there are now only three Wards which have not addressed or agreed to address the Lord Mayor and Mr. Oliver. On Thursday two Men, Father and Son, were committed to New Prison, charged with counter- feiting Shillings. The Amnesty, or Accommodation, entered into and agreed upon between the Turks and the Rus- sians, was amply confirmed last Monday. This happy Circumstance co- operating with the gene- ral Complection of Peace between the Kings of Great Britain, France, and Spain, had such an Effect on the Stocks, that they rose upwards of Seven per Cent. Just before the Departure of the last Packet from Lisbon, a Royal Order was sent to the Custom- House, not to suffer any French Woollen Manufactures, or even any with a Mixture of Wool, to be entered, or dispatched on any Pre- tence whatever ; which had thrown the whole French Factory into the utmost Consternation. It is supposed the next Packet which arrives will inform us of the Cause of this Procedure. The Truth of this Paragraph may be entirely relied on. There is nothing so elear as that Madame de Barre is now in the Zenith of Power at Versailles, and that Power even superior to what was ever exercised by the late Madame Pompadour. This Lady has rendered the Kingdom of France a very signal Service, by first laying open many of the absurd Plans of the late Minster Choiseul, not one of which, as Madame de Barre prophe- sied above twelve Months ago, has succeeded. The King, charmed as much with the political Abilities, as with the personal Beauties of this Fair Hibernian, has at last, agreeable to her Re- quest, entirely new modelled his Cabinet, of which the following Arrangement is a faithful Description : 1. The Duke d'Aiguillon succeeds to the De- partment of foreign Affairs, in the Place of the Duke de Choiseul. 2. Monsieur de Boyne is appointed to the Ma- rine Department, in the Place of the Duke de Praslin, who is dead of Chagrin. 3. Monsieur de Foulon is made Comptroller- General, in the Place of the Abbot Terrai. 4. The Duke de Lavoyne is made Superinten- dant of the Post and Relais. 5. The Marshal Duke de Broglio is in Nomi- nation for the War Department. Letters from France inform us that there have been great Insurrections in Lorain, on Account of the Dearness of Provisions ; that many Persons have been killed ; and it was feared there would be much more Bloodshed before they could be quelled. Extract of a Letser from a Gentleman at Bergen, in Norway. " This will inform you of the dismal Situation this Town is now reduced to, by a Fire that broke out the 2d Instant, between Three and Four o'Clock in the Morning, which in the Space of eight Hours laid the moll opulent and exten- sive Quarter of the City in Ashes. The Damage is computed from 100,000l. to 150,000l. Sterling. The Number of Houses burnt, besides Ware- houses, is reckoned 120.

IN the Year 1769, I contracted amostviolent Scurvy, by a too long Confinement to Salt Provisions, during a voyage on hoard the Phonix Man of War, Capt. Tonny, to Senegal in Africa, where I resided for a con- siderable Time as Steward to Chief justice Christopher Milles, Esq; whose utmost Endeavours to procure Assis- tance for me in that Country were ineffectual. My Dis- order stillincreased to such a Degree, that I had no less than eleven Holes in my Legs, which obliged me to so- licit Permission to return to England. On my Arrival in London, I applied to several of themosteminent of the Faculty, without receiving the Benefit I expected. How- ever, upon observing an Advertisement in the Papers of the very remarkable Cure of Mrs. Mary Graham, residing at No. 59, Cannon- Street, by the Application of your Balsamic Tincture, I waited on her, to be satis- fied of the Truth of the said Cure; when, being fully convinced of the Authenticity, I bought two Bottles of the Tincture, which I found of much Service to me, and by continuing it, I have the Happiness to assure you that my Disorder is entirely removed, and the Holes in my Legs are perfectly healed, except one, which is now no bigger than the Head of a Pin. I am entirely free from Pain, and in as good Health as ever I was m my Life. I send you this as an Acknowledgement, for the Benefit of those who may be afflicted with the same Complaint, and am ready to convince any Person of the Truth of this Assertion, who will call on me at Mr. Uphill's China Shop, in Mount- Street, Berkley- Square.

LAST Thursday, in the Night, the Musqueteers carried Letters deCachet to the twelve Members of the Great Council, who had resigned, or- dering them to return to the Palace, and resume their Functions. Some them would not go King might command his Fortune, his person, and his Life, but that he could not dispose of his Honour or his Conscience. The Parliament of Rouen, hearing of the New Parliament established at Paris, has charged the New Members with Perjury, and forbid all the Officers under their Jurisdiction to acknowledge any of their Acts. LONDON, Tuesday, April 30. This Morning, precisely at Ten o'Clock, Ri- chard Oliver, Esq; was brought by Writ of Ha- beas Corpus before the Barons of the Exchequer, i when, after the Writ was read, Mr. Serjeant Glynn made a Motion for his Enlargement, which he supported to the following Purport : He observed, " that there were various Cases where the Authority of Parliament ( great as he allowed it to be in many Respects) could not con- troul the established Laws of the Land. He in- stanced in particular the Transaction of the Long Parliament, during the Civil Wars, and asked their Lordships, whether they would not be under the Necessity of condemning their Proceedings. He said the House of Commons could furnish them with no legal Justification, when that House assumed Privileges they had no Right to assume. That the Cases of Lord Shaftsbury and Mr. Mur- ray, which had been urged as Cases against this Doctrine, were not at all similar, as the former happened at a Period unfavourable to the Liberty of the Subject, and when the Judges were depri- vable of their Office at Pleasure, and as the Letter was a Commitment for a Contempt of the House, in the Face of their Body, and within their own Walls, and did not at all clash with the known and established Laws of the Land. He further observed, that in the Case of the King and Potter, Lord Chief Justice Holt was of Opinion, that the House of Commons derived their Authority from the Laws, and let me tell your Lordships, ( continued the Serjeant) that great Chief Justice was a Person as well acquainted with the History and Laws of this Country as any Per- son that ever presided in any Court of Justice. The Serjeant then mentioned the Cause of Mr. Oliver's Commitment in a very spirited and pre- cise Manner, and observed, that the Cause of Offence was no more than committing a Messen- ger, who was no other Way authorised than hav- ing an Order of the House in his Pocket, with- out his Name or Office specified, as Authority to execute that Order. Allowing, therefore, says he, the full Extent of the Privilege of the House, how can Mr. Oliver be guilty of an Offence in committing this unauthorised Person, without sup- posing a personal Privilege in the Messenger ; a Supposition that carries Absurdity on the Face of it. ( In short, it is impossible to follow the learned Serjeant in the Variety of Arguments he made Use of in the Course of full two Hours, where he has left it difficult to determine in which he most excelled, Oratory or Argument. Mr. Serjeant Jephson, and Mr. Lee, severally supported the Serjeant. Mr. Jephson quoted a Number of Cases, in all which the Persons found to be unlawfully committed were discharged, and for these Reasons, - that the Court, in the Case of a Habeas Corpus, could not support its constitu- tional Authority otherwise. Mr. Lee followed Mr. Serjeant Jephson with great Spirit and Argument, and concluded by bidding adieu to the Civil Liberties of England, if they depended on the arbitrary Decree of Par- liament. After the Arguments were finished, the Court very briefly replied, " They could not take Cog- nizance of the Privileges of Parliament, they were of themselves competent Judges, and that therefore Mr. Oliver must be remanded." Mr. Oliver instantly obeyed this Determination, by getting into a Hackney Coach, and driving off to the Tower. From the general Course of Proceedings in the Case of the Imprisonment of the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Oliver, it is evi- dent that the Design of the Foes to Liberty is to confine these patriotic Gentlemen till the Parlia- ment adjourns. The Parliament is to break up next Tuesday. The Expence of the Parliament Business done this Session on account of the City, it is said, al- ready amounts to near 4000 l. The intended Address from Gloucester to the Lord Mayor, and the Aldermen, ( Wilkes and Oliver) is, we hear, laid aside, both the Mem- bers not choosing, it is thought, to attend with it. We can assure the Public, that Lord Chatham was sent for, a few Days since, by a Great Per- sonage, on a very extraordinrry Occasion, to St. James's, but that he was prevented by a severe Fit of the Gout. The Gout has been remarked in a certain Assembly to be a very great Politician. Mr. Allen has got a Petition drawn up, and signed by six Justices of the Peace and several of the Inhabitants of the Borough, to prove that his Son was a well- behaved Lad, and never was en- gaged in a Riot in his Life, as Mr. O w asserted in the House. We are assured that Mr. Allen will shortly pub- lish to the World the Petition that was on Friday presented to the House of Commons, and rejected ; with Remarks on Lord Barrington's Letter. Last Friday the Committee sat on the present Cause of Riots and Disturbances. Several Con- stables were examined; but they could not give an Account of any Person, excepting one Keys, ( for pelting one of the Constables) who is out upon Bail. Yesterday the following Bills received the Royal Assent by a Commission from his Majesty, viz. The Bill for applying the Sum granted for the Pay and Clothing of the Militia for the present Year. The Bill for improving and preserving the Na- vigation of the Rivers Thames and Isis, from the City of London to Cricklade, in Wilts. The Bill for embanking that Part of the River Thames adjoining to Durham Yard in the Strand, and County of Middlesex. Duration of Parliament, on Friday last, said, that he would go as far as any Man at a proper Time ; but he could not then think of such an important Affair, when the Session was almost concluded. " It is never too late, ( said another Member) to improve the Constitution. Though you would go as far as any Man at a proper Time, I will lay an even Wager that you will never be the first Man to make such a Motion at any Season." Extract from the Speech delivered by Mr. Sawbridge, on Friday last, on shortening the Duration of Parliaments. " Human Nature is so frail or so corrupt that Obligations, unless they are frequently renewed, lose their Force. Hence in the Course of seven Years Representatives forget their Constituents ; and long Parliaments naturally become independent of the People. What is the Consequence ? They become dependent on the Crown, whose influencing Power is, by the vast Increase of Places, become almost irresistible. I own, indeed, that there is some Provision made against known Placemen. But where is there any Security against secret Placemen and Pensioners, against the Reptiles who creep up the Back- stairs, and come down with a Bag of Gui- neas ready to burst ? In these Cases the Laws are by no Means effectual, and therefore the People have no other Remedy but a new Election." " To refuse short Parliaments may create, but can never prevent, Discontents. Before Septennial Parliaments existed, did the Canvassing begin two or three Years before the Election ? No : For it is na- tural to contend more eagerly for a septennial than a triennial Post of Honour or Profit. Then those who had no natural Interest, law no sufficient Temp- tation to employ Bribery. When Bribery was not used, every Elector voted according to his natural Bias or Inclination: And now, that Bribes have ac- tually taken Place, whoever buys must come up to the Elector's Price : He therefore that comes in by Corruption, will seldom go out with clean Hands."

William M'Morran, of St. Andrew, Hol- borw, Linnen draper, at Guildhall. Early Intelligence from our Correspondents in London, ( dated Wednesday, May 1, ) which cannot appear in any other Country Paper sooner than Saturday, nor even in any of the London Papers before those brought by the. Mail on Friday. YESTERDAY a Courier arrived at the Prussian Ambassador's, and we hear he has brought Instructions to his Excellency from his Master to de- mand of the Court of Great Britain the Sum of 300,000 1. which has been due to his Prussian Majesty ever since the lad War ; and that the Ambassador is to insist on an immediate An- swer. The Ambassador immediately waited on the Earl of Halifax, and it is said a Council is to be held upon it To- day. This Matter has thrown the Ministry into great Confusion. A Correspondent, in a Letter from Portsmouth, dated April 30, says, " I have just been taking a View of the Fleet; a finer Sight I never beheld. I went on Board several Ships, and to my great Surprize found they were not half manned. The Fleet consists of 32 Sail, with several Frigates : Besides a Deficiency in Men, they are also short of Guns and Ammunition : So that should a War break out, not above half this Fleet can be sent to Sea. We hear that the Ministry intend, before the Breaking up of the Parliament, to move, that the Speaker may make out another Warrant for apprehending again Miller, the Printer, and that it may be directed to the Sheriffs of London and Middlesex ; but the Sheriffs have declared, that they will take no Notice of such Warrant. Monday Evening the House of Commons put off the Stock- jobbing Bill sine Die. The Commons at the same Time adjourned till Monday next, having finished the whole Bu- siness of the Session, except that of Prorogation. Several capital Merchants in the City have so- licited many of their Friends in Parliament to make a solemn Demand of Lord North, in bis Place, whether the Amnesty between the Russians and Turks might be depended on or not. But this Demand cannot now be made, the House meeting no more this Session to debate, or do any other Business. In consequence of the last Dispatches from Madrid, our Court have actually paid off forty King's Ships. — A little Dispute happened be- tween the Spanish Court and ours, soon after the Declaration was ratified by both Courts, about which Court should disarm first, which Spain in- sisted upon we should do, as we were the first that begun to arm ; but we absolutely refused, as they were the first Aggressors. This Point they have now given up, and the last Dispatches from Ma- drid were to satisfy our Court that the Spaniards had begun to disarm, and lay up all the Ships of War which they had fitted out in the different Ports of that Kingdom. Last Sunday, as the Lord Mayor was return- ing from the Church in the Tower to his Apart- ments, several Girls were playing, one of whom followed his Lordship into his Apartments. Up- on a Table lay a Summons; the Girl jumped up, and seizing the Summons eat it; upon which his Lordship smiled, and stroking her upon the Head, said, " Poor Creature; sure this is an ill Omen 5- 8ths a 3- 4ths.

Monckt entertained the Officers with a very elegant Din ner at the Hop Pole Inn, in this City. — In to Evening, the Officers complimented a very polite splendid, and numerous Company of Ladies a Gentlemen, with a Ball, at the Town Hall. A certain Publican of this City, who, for for Time, had been suspected of certain unnature and detestable Practices, has thought proper to camp, Information having been given again him by a Servant Boy who lately lived with him Yesterday Hen.

ET me ask your Lordship this simple Ques- tion : Whether there can be a surer Symptom systematical Corruption in any Administration, under the Pretence of aiding the Supplies of Year, to promote a regular annual Lottery, the ckets of which are parcelled out in Bribes to the mbers of the two Houses; whist it is a notori- s Truth, that Lord Holland, lo justly named by City, " The Defaulter of unaccounted Mil- is," is permitted to retain in his Hands a Balance to the Public of many Hundred Thousands? From the London Evening Post To the * * * * . SIR. WILLING to embrace the favourable Interval which the Timidity of your dissolute Mi- ers, or the Suspension of the just Resentment of ur Subjects, allows me, I once more address my- " to your Majesty. The Storm gathers fast; upon whose devoted had it will burst, Heaven only knows. Indeed, Time of such Commotions, in which we may n find ourselves involved, Providence has ever n propitious on the Side of Liberty, and sancti- by Success the glorious Contention for it. Be deceived, Sir, by the Impunity with which r wicked Ministers have hitherto passed in their sonable Attempts to undermine the Constitu- and destroy our Liberties. Do not think Ven- nce is dead, while it only sleepeth ; or that the ple feel not for Freedom, and conceive an ut- Abborrence of those who would betray it, because y have not yet attempted to do themselves ample ice. It is long, Sir, before the People feel their rtance; — used to a willing Obedience, they not soon routed into resentful Opposition. The ular Power i so widely diffused, that in general cts but weakly. But when Oppression has brought People into Union, and condensed their Force, driving them into close Confederacy, the na- il and political Strength of the Subject imme- tely exerts itself; its Re- action is not felt till it ppressed, and its Resistance sound by the Oppo- made to it. The Vigour of this Power is soon attained, nor does it exert itself by sudden ineffectual Attempts. Like all other Things permanent Strength, it rises by flow Degrees, l continues to act with irresistible Impulse; reas Tyranny, being the inordinate Lust of one, he intemperate Ambition of many to rule, like den Passion, it vents itself in Hidden Irregu- ty, exerts all its Force at once, and, after the Defeat, it has no Forces to rally, or any Con- rates to trust. Whether, Sir, you regard Things in this Light, now not; possibly Experience may fatally instruct in the Truth of some political Maxims, which er entered into Lord Bute's System, or your own. real Experience, Sir, may teach you to doubt, east, concerning those Principles he has ad- ced; and your Duty as a King, and your Fears Man, ought to have some Weight with you, n you have so much at Stake as your Subjects fare, and your own. Happy, Sir, would it be the People, if your Ministers had not taught to separate these Ideas, and adopt a Plan of icy upon the most inconsistent, unnatural, and onstitutional Principles. Your Government, Sir, never be happy to yourself, unless it is so to ir People. That it is not so, their Complaints, itions, and Remonstrances, testify. You want Evidences of this; and you believe it, Sir, in te of all your Ministers c: u lay, or your Mo- r suggest. The discontented Murmurs of your red people have burst through the Barriers of terial Concealment that inclose you, to screen if possible, first from your subjects Complaints, next from their Insults. Instead, Sir, of coin- forth to your People, with conscious Joy in Countenance, resulting from the god- like Sa- ction of being their Father, Protector, and nd, you skrink from the Eye of your Subjects inward Shame; and sometimes we can fee, n your disconsolate Brow, that your Heart wants se secret Satisfactions, which can alone make r Crown easy, and your Reign prosperous to self, and happy to your People. Painful Strug- have we beheld between that Love of Glory, ch, as a Briton, you boasted yourself in spired h, when you first ascended the English Throne, that native, maternal Pride, which more than nterbalances any patriotic Sentiments that your ast can feel. The Disposition has been carefully rished, by the fame fostering Hand from whence it unhappily derived; and your good Subjects, are almost ready to pardon you, when they re- ber the Stock, on one Side, from whence you ung: But their Resentment re- kindles, when y trace your Origin on the other; from whence derive Dignity sufficient to deserve our warmest ection and Zeal, if you discredit it not, and to y am equal Resentment if , you do. Call up, Sir, vour Father in, your Soul, and banish your Mother ver ; and white a Race of Heroes pals before your gination, endeavour to catch some of that sacred our and patriotic Flame, that burnt in the Breast our great Deliverer, and glowed in the Heart of rge the First and Second. Let not the Annals of r Reign deliver to. Posterity the dismal Tale of r Dishonour, Sir, and your Disgrace. Let it not said, that George the Third infringed upon those ed Liberties his Ancestors gloriously procured, zealously preserved; that he broke the Consti- ion by Perverseness and Folly, which they erected their Wisdom, and continued by their Justice ; that he transgressed those Laws, and disregarded to sacred Charter, which his illustrious Ancestors ve to protect and maintain, and which, by every ligation, and the most solemn Oath, he Is bound defend. our Offspring, Sir, are numerous; they may live head your History, and be taught, perhaps, by r Example, what you would do well to learn, w, Sir, will your Shade rest in Peace, if upon the usal of the faithful Page, your Successor shall urn Realms lost by your Inadvertence, and find self deprived of Empire, by the Hands that ld have preserved, and transmitted it to him h undiminished Glory? How will the real Friends your House mourn, when they only remember by what you might ha- ve been ? Save, Sir, your me and your Posterity from Disgrace. Leave not e future Usurper ( for Scotland still exists---- Re- ion has still her Seat) Room only to point at r History in his own Justification. Perhaps, Sir, think you shall derive some Advantage from h a Remembrance as I have mentioned; and that rity, busy in shewing what so favoured and ent King might have been, will lose all Remem- nce of what he was.

The Party, from whom any Thing shall be stolen, is to give immediate Notice thereof to all the Parties to the said Articles, every one of whom is, then, without Delay, to dispatch a Man and Horse fifty Miles, in Pursuit of the Felon; and if the Person so dispatched shall gain any Intelligence of him, he is to continue his Pursuit, if necessary, throughout England and Wales. The Pursuers will take different Roads from each other, and the Whole is formed upon such a Plan, that every Part of the Kingdom will be travelled in a very short Time. It will therefore be almost impossible for Offenders to escape. Every Turnpike Gate- keeper will be entitled to a Reward of Ten Shillings, if he gives such Intelligence as shall enable the Pursuers to apprehend the Offender. Shipton.

THE following Cure is so very remarkable, both for its Inveteracy and the open Manner in which it wis effected that ' tis to be hoped it will be deemed a sa- tisfactory and incontestible Proof of the Efficacy of the VEGE- TABLE SYRUP; more especially as Cases of this Kind are not easily to be obtained, from Motives of Delicacy. Edward Davis, Font Soldier in the late Lord Ligonier's Re- giment of Guards, was, from a Venereal Cause of long standing, highly complicated with the Scurvy, covered with large Pustules and fordid Ulcers, from the Crown of his Head to the Soles of his Feet. Upon Examination 1 also discerned, that the Uvula was ulcerated, and the Tonsils almost consumed by two large Ulcers. He was besides afflicted with the most dreadful nocturnal Pains with Nodes on various us Parts, a flaw hectic Fever, and continual Head Ach. He had been under Mercurial Courses without Effect, was it this Time reduced to a mere Skeleton, and looked on as totally incurable. As I wished to have an Opportunity of putting the Vegetable Syrup to the most severe Trial, I had requested a noble Friend of mine to obtain of Lord Ligonier, that I might have a Soldier from the Hospital in petty France, Westminster, on whom. I might make an Experiment, whose Cafe was be most complicated and obstinate. This Man was presented lea to me by Order of his Colonel, as a most hopeless Subject and sent to my House ; where he was radically cured in the Space of six Weeks, by the use of the Syrup ONLY, and retained for inspection to the Hospital, accompanied by his Colored and myself, perfectly found, to the great Astonishment of all who were acquainted with his deplorable Case ; and remains to this Day in perfect Health.
