Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, September 10, 1772. Numb. 408 Saturday's and Sunday's Posts. Extract of a Letter from Rome, July 8. THE Power of the Papal See is visibly declining every Day; People begin to be weary of a Yoke that is almost insupport- able, and now think them- selves without the intermediate Help of a Priest. The Courts of Madrid and Lisbon have struck at the Stamina of the Pope's Supremacy in religious as well as civil Affairs, by the Expulsion of the Jesuits, and the now meditated Design of expelling the Domi- nicans, who in a Manner over- run the Kingdoms of Spain and Portugal. Raised by these spirited Examples, the Powers of Italy are now on the Point of extirpating the above- mentioned Order, and have lately taken upon them to nominate their own Bishops. The People in the Cam- pania of Rome, under the immediate Jurisdiction of the Pope, have lately preferred a Petition against some of their Pastors for oppressing them, and committing the grossest Crimes under the Sanction of Religion : Although the Consistory of Cardinals have threatened the Complainants with the severest Interdictions for their Presump- tion, it has no Effect, and the Voice of Affliction cries throughout all Italy. IRELAND. Galway, August 24. Between the Hours of Twelve and Two o'clock this Morning, all the Felons in the County Gaol in this Town made their Escape, by Means or Connivance of the Centinel posted there at that Time, who either assisted or permitted the Locks of the Grate and Door to be broke open ; and he himself, having left his Arms and Accoutrements at his Post, also went off, and none of them have been since heard of. LONDON, Friday, Sept. 4. Orders are come from the Court at Denmark to their Agent here to pay to this Court 6o, oool. which is the Fortune given to Queen Caroline- Matilda, and which the Court of Denmark have thought proper to return ; also 20,000l. more, in Consideration of the Presents made to the Queen on her Marriage with the King of Denmark. And, we hear, that the above Sums of Money are to be appropriated for the future Maintenance and Support of the Queen of Denmark. It is now determined on that the Prince of Wales and the Bishop of Osnabrug are to reside at Carlton House during the Winter, and some Al- terations are making for their Reception. Wednesday Morning there was a general Court of the Proprietors of East- India Stock, at their House in Leadenhall- Street, pursuant to Adjourn- ment, for the Determination, by Ballot, of the following Question : ' That this Court do agree with the Court of ' Directors in their Opinion, that the present ' State of the Company's Affairs at their Presi- ' dencies of Bengal, Fort St. George, and Bom- ' bay, doth require a Superintending Commission, ' with extraordinary Powers; and that it be re- ' ferred to the Court of Directors to prepare such ' Commission, recommend proper Persons to ' carry the same into Execution, and report their ' Proceedings to a General Court.' The Balloting began at Eleven o'Clock in the Forenoon, and continued till Six in the Evening, when the Scrutineers appointed for conducting the Ballot, cast up the Numbers, which were some Time after reported by the Chair to a General Court, and stood thus: For the Question — 331 Against it — 146 Majority for the Question 185 The Directors were so eager to announce the Majority in their Favour, or rather so willing to avoid the Impertinence of a crowded Court, who probably would have made some Reflections on their Success, that they declared the Ballot Half an Hour sooner than usual, to the Disappointment of a considerable Number of Proprietors. Some golden Arguments are preparing by a certain great Company against the approaching Period of Debate, which it is believed will prove irresistible. The following are said to be the Particulars re- lating to the Case of Capt. Jones, which hap- pened last Week before a great Council: The D. of N. declared his strong Suspicious of the Captain's Guilt, but was far from thinking the Boy's Deposition unexceptionable, from his visiting a Person twice after such indecent Liber- ties had been taken with him. Lord M and Lord C both agreed, that the Life of a Criminal ought not to be taken away, but upon the Evidence of two credible Witnesses. Lord S. also thought the Evidence insufficient from the Tenderness of his Age. Lord R. spoke long and fully upon the Subject; he asserted, that supposing the Captain to be guilty, he by no Means thought, as an Assertor. of the Rights of Humanity, the Crime ought to be punished with Death ; that for his Part, tho' he detested it as much as any Man living, he could not think it did so much Injury to Society as many other Offences, which the Legislature does not look upon in a capital Light. That it had never been treated with any great Degree of Se- rity by the wisest Nations of the Ancients, par- nion, that its own Infamy was sufficient for its Punishment; that with Respect to the unfortunate Person in Question, he thought the universal good Character given of him by his Brother Of- ficers, and his Behaviour at the Havannah, ought to over- balance the Deposition of a Child, who possibly might be parrotted, by interested Persons, to say Things which had no Foundation in Truth. Lord F. was of a very different Opinion with Respect to the Captain's Innocence, and made some severe Animadversions upon his Conduct; which he warmly infilled had been so atrocious, that nothing ought to impede the Sentence of the Law being executed. Lord N. in general corresponded with the last- mentioned Nobleman, and thought it was neces- sary, from the late rapid Progress of so shocking a Vice, that some striking Example should be made. Lord T. accorded with the Minister, with Respect to the Propriety of making an Example, provided the Crime was clearly proved ; but said he rather wished that fifty guilty Men should escape, than that one innocent Person should be condemned to Death; and as he had Doubts of the Captain's Criminality, he consequently chose to be on the merciful Side of the Question. The Debate was then taken up by a Gentle- man who expressed himself in the bitterest Terms against the Culprit, and all who protected him ; which Expression being resented by some of the Gentlemen above mentioned, the Dispute became a Scene of Confusion, when a Great Personage, on being appealed to, suddenly started up, and said, " My Lords, we have already spent too much Time upon a very disgusting Subject, which I by no Means chuse to investigate further; but as many of you seem much better acquainted with these Matters than I am, I leave it to yourselves to de- termine what ought to be done." At these Words he walked out of the Room with great Dignity, and the Meeting broke up immediately after. The Views of the Court of France, in Respect to Corfica, must undoubtedly rouse the English and Spanish Ministry to oppose; them, or else their Pusillanimity is not to be parallelled. The French intend making that Island a Repository of Marine Stores ; the Shores are to be covered with Dock Yards; and the Building of Ships is to be their chief Object. The Consequences of which are obvious. The Island must be strongly for- tified to protect their Works; and as their Naval Force increases, consequently so will their Strength; they will engross all the Levant Trade, and be able to support their Title to it with any Power in Europe; and, perhaps, when they find their Force sufficient, may encroach upon, or drive us and other Nations, from more valuable Branches of Trade. The approaching Congress to fettle the Affairs of Poland causes much Speculation. Many People imagine that the King will be entirely diverted of his Kingdom ; and that it will after- wards be under a Republican Form of Go- vernment. Whilst others ( and those much the greater Part) think that it will be equally divided between the Prussians, Germans, and Russians. However, all seem to agree that, if the King is restored, he will hold his Dominions under one or all of the above- mentioned Powers. By Letters from France we are informed, that the Court of Versailles is under great Embarrass- ment on Account of the late Interview between the Emperor of Germany and the King of Prussia, which they apprehend in its Consequences to be dangerous to the Tranquility of Europe. The Invasion of the Kingdom which followed their first Conference, and the Partition of that King- dom that is likely soon to take Place after this, is the more alarming, as the Power of these two Potentates being thereby rendered formidable, their Union, it is feared, will produce an Altera- tion in the System of Europe, to which the Gran- deur of France will probably be made the first Sacrifice. The Dutchies of Lorraine and Bar, the Province of Alface, and the Towns that have been wrested from the Imperial Diadem in Flan- ders, are Objects which the Emperor must have in View. While the Claims of his Prussian Ma- jest on Great Britain, will on the other Hand furnish a Pretence for that enterprising Monarch to fall upon Hanover, in order to add that Elec- torate to his other Territories. Thus these two Potentates, say the French, by adding Territory after Territory to their Dominions, will become the Arbiters of Europe. They write from Vienna, that his Polish Ma- jelly sent a very spirited Memorial to each of the Courts that have interested themselves in his Af- fairs, in which he pledged his Honour, that if any Attempt was made to dismember his King- dom, he would oppose it while he could bring one Soldier to the Field; because he considered it as the greatest Injustice to his Subjects, after they had thrown themselves into his Protection, to suf- fer them tamely to fall under she Dominion of another Power without making Resistance. The above Letter adds, that it is in Consequence of these Memorials the new Congress, for the Af- fairs of Poland alone, has been proposed, and is to be held. By the last Mails we learn, that the late Re- bellion in Sweden was occasioned by the Oppres- sion that the People experienced, from a Want of Care in the Magistrates to reduce the enormous Price of Provisions. We are credibly informed, that five Men of Guns, and the Brilliant of 36, for Sea imme- diately, A Person just arrived from Lisbon reports, that that Court had received some disagreeable Ad- vices from the Portugueze Settlement of Goa, on the Malabar Coast. A Letter from Kingston in Jamaica says, the Spanish Guarda Costas have taken at Rio de la Hacha, two Sloops from Jamaica, with Provisions for that River. A Letter from Charles- Town, South Carolina, dated July 14, says, " The Ship Betsy and Jenny, belonging to London, Alex. Thompson, Master, with a Cargo of Negroes from Gambia for this Port, was obliged to put into Dominica, owing to the Negroes riling when the Ship was near that Island; several of them lost their Lives before they could be got under, the others were sold there, and the Ship is gone for Europe." Letters from Corfica inform, that the Duties laid on all English Goods imported into that Island, are so high that they almost amount to a Prohibition. They write from Lerwick, in Shetland, that the Fishery this Season has been beyond the most sanguine Expectations, the Dutch having cleared by the Article of white Herrings only, above Ten Millions Sterling; so that allowing one Twentieth- part to the Revenue, the Government has gained 5oo, oool. Tuesday lad Mr. Sheriff Wilkes entertained at the Globe Tavern, in Fleet- Street, the Com- mon Council of the Ward of Farringdon Without, the Colts of the Committee of City Lands, Mr. Sheriff Bull, the Rev. Dr. Wilson, Father of the City Clergy, Rev. Mr. Williamson, & c. on Oc- casion of the hanselling the Silver Cup, recom- mended by the Livery, and voted by the Com- mon Council. The Cup is said to be very ele- gant, and to do great Honour to the several Artists employed. It is reported that the Bass Relief was designed by Mr. Wilkes. On the upper Part of the Cup, according to ancient Custom, the City Arms, with the " Dagger" in the first Qaarter, are curiously embossed. Be- neath is a noble Bass Relief, very highly finished, which seems to hint an Idea of the Meaning of the " Dagger," or " Short Sword," in the City Arms, different from what the Antiquarians have hitherto suggested, either of the " Dagger," as alluding to that with which Sir William Wal- worth, a Lord Mayor of London in the Time of Richard II. killed Wat Wyler; or, as others sup- pose, to the " Short Sword" of St. Paul. The Subject of the Bass Relief is the Death of Julius Caesar in the Roman Senate. He is represented gracefully covered with the Toga fallen at the Base of a Pedestal, which supports a Statue of Pompey the Great. Brutus, Cassius, and the other noble Romans, Conspirators for their Coun- try, form a Circle around the Body, their " Daggers" still reeking with the Tyrant's Blood after the godlike Stroke, raised to Heaven, but every Eye fixed on Brutus, who is in the At- titude of congratulating Cicero on the Recovery of the public Liberty, and pointing to the pro- strate and expiring Usurper. Beneath the Bass Relief are the following Words : " May every Tyrant feel " The keen deep Searchings of a Patriot's Steel !" CHURCHILL. The Figure of Brutus is particularly bold and striking, and the Capital of the whole Groupe. On the opposite Side is an Inscription in an Oval of Oak Leaves, " The GIFT Of The CITY of LONDON To Alderman WILKES, 177 2." We hear it is in Contemplation with a little truely patriotick Committee to build, in conve- nient Parts of the Town, Ovens for baking the Bread made of American Flour, with Shops ad- joining, where the Poor may purchase it on easy Terms. A List of Supernumeraries, we hear, is ordered to be made out and laid before a certain Board, of every Office dependent on Government through- out the Kingdom ; a Circumstance which has pro- duced great Panicks in the Hearts of many In- dividuals. A Grant has passed the Privy Seal, of Part of Rockingham Forest for a Term of 99 Years, to the Earl of Upper Ossory, under the Title of Master or Keeper of the said Forest. A Commission of Oyer and Terminer on Wed- nesday passed the Great Seal, authorizing and empowering the Governors of New York and Connecticut, and others named therein, to try any Person or Persons that may be taken in Conse- quence of the Proclamation issued for apprehend- ing any that were concerned in plundering and burning the Gaspee Schooner. Wednesday the Purser of the Talbot East India- man, Sir Charles Hudson, Commander, came to the India House with an Account of the above Ship being safe arrived in the Downs from China. She failed on her Voyage from the Downs the 15th of Feb. 1771. We can with great Certainty assure the Public, that the Report of a great Brewer having stopped Payment is absolutely false. Last Thursday being the second and last Day of Goudhurst Fair, in Kent, there was a very nu- A rich Stomacher is making by an em Jeweller at the West End of the Town for a tain Dutchess, the capital Stone of which worth 7000l-. The whole Stomacher is at 5o, oool. Wednesday a young Woman, waiting Ma a young Lady in Charlotte- Street, found to rob her of One Thousand Pounds Wort Jewels. She has not yet been discovered. On Monday Night Mr. Simpson, a M Taylor in Oxford- Street, being accustomed walk in his Sleep, got out of Bed, opened Chamber Window;, and fell out on the Paveme he was discovered by the Watchman going Rounds, with his Skull fractured in a shock Manner, and otherwise much bruised, Yesterday a Man was met in St. Paul's Chu yard, who had broke open a Person's Ches Rumford, in Essex, and stole nine Guineas, Silver Buckles, Rings, Apparel, and other Thi of Value ; he was carried to the Poultry- Com for Examination ; on searching him, some of Goods were found noon him, and one of Rings upon his Finger; he endeavoured to esq as he was carrying to the Compter, but was vented. On Tuesday John Platt was committed to gate by David Wilmot, Esq; charged on Oath of Elizabeth Powell, for violently assault her, and carnally knowing her against her and Consent. On Tuesday a Man was taken up in Whit Alley, Chancery- Lane, for putting off bad H pence. He was concerned with the Coiners, was committed to Clerkenwell Bridewell. So of Sir John Fielding's People are gone to mingham, and other Parts, on Information some already taken, after others who put off bad Money in different Parts of the Kingdom Monday Night some Villains broke into Barley Mow Alehouse, in New Gravel- Lane, cliff Highway, when two Men broke open Room Door where the Landlord and his were in Bed ; one of the Men stood over the La lord with a Pistol, while the other broke open Drawers, and took from thence in Cash and Ba Notes to the Amount of 150l. and in the Hu left a 30l. Bank Note behind them, and on W nesday a seafaring Man, that lodged in the Hou was taken up on a Charge of being concern in the said Robbery, and being carried best Justice Sherwood, was committed to Prison. Tuesday three Men were taken up in Ke Street, Southwark, for coining of Money ; Implements were found concealed in a Cellar is supposed there are upwards of twenty m concerned, who are not yet taken. The Woman who has turned Evidence aga the Coiners was tried at the Old Bailey three sions ago, and her Evidence hanged her Husban the Porter belonging to Gray's Inn. This is third Time of her turning Evidence. Wednesday, at the Public- Office in Bow- Stre David Duborn appeared against Joseph At hams and Lyon Abrahams, on a Charge of ste ing a Trunk, containing a Gold Watch, Double Louis D'Ors, and various other Thin Joseph Abrahams being admitted an Eviden deposed, that Lyon Abrahams and himself the Trunk out of a Cart on London Bridge, carried it to the .

Stockholm ( Sweden) August 21. YESTERDAY Morning a Paper was laid upon the Table, in one of the Apartments of the Palace, for all those to subscribe who were willing to swear Fidelity to the King ; and it is that the Number of Subscribers has been y large. Stockholm, August 22. Yesterday being the Day en the Form of Government, sworn to by the ng, on the 29th of May, and by the States the l of June, was to be abolished, and a new one be produced in a full Assembly of all the Or- rs, a large Detachment of Guards was ordered take Possession of the Square where the House Nobles Hands ; and the Palace was invested on Sides with Troops, and Cannon were placed the Court near the Hall where the States were sembled.— The Scene was opened by a Speech om thé Throne ; his Majesty had in his Hand e Silver Hammer of Gustavus Adolphus, with which he made the Signal for Silence, an Office ually performed by a Senator, but none were efent. His Majesty concluded his Speech by suring the Assembly, that he did not desire the vereignty, and would take a solemn Oath to nounce it, which he immediately did. His Majesty then ordered the new Form of Govern- ment to be read to them by a Secretary of Revi- sion. This Piece consists of above forty Articles e principal ones are, 1st, The King is to chuse the Senate himself. 2dly, His Majesty is to call the States together then he pleases, and to separate them also when pleases, after three Months. 3dly, The Contributions are to be given by e States ; but if not granted within 3 Months, e old ones are to remain. In case of Invasion, pressing Necessity, his Majesty may impose me Taxes for raising Money tell the States can be assembled. 4thly, When the States are assembled, they are deliberate upon nothing but what his Majesty leases to lay before them. 5 thly, Hi s Majesty has the sole Disposition of e Army, Navy, and Finances, and of all Em- ployments Civil and Military. As soon as the Whole of this Piece was read rough, his Majesty asked the Assembly if they would give him their Oath to observe this Form Government; which being answered in the Affirmative, he required them immediately to wear to it, which they did accordingly. His Majesty then required the Speakers of the respec- tive Orders to come to the Table and sign and al the new Form. After all this Ceremony as over, the King stood up, and said, that it las proper to thank Almighty God for his Assist- ance in bringing about so happy an Event, and uling a Psalm- Book out of his Pocket, he began sing the Te Deum, in which he was accompa- nied by the Assembly. His Majesty then per- mitted the States to kiss his Hand, after which e left the Room, and the States separated with- out knowing whether they were to meet again or pt. This depends on his Majesty's Pleasure. [ Thus far the Gaz. COUNTRY NEWS Gloucester, Sept. 7. Mr. Daw, Mr. Bidmead, and Jeremiah Workman, condemned at our last Assizes, still be executed on Saturday next. The Person who waited upon the Judge with a Petition in Fa- vour of Daw, is returned with a Refusal. Mr. Bid- head is very exemplary in his Repentance, and asses all his Time in Devotion. Jeremiah Work- man, who, till the Time of his Condemnation, was shockingly ignorant that he knew not the Name of Jesus Christ, is very penitent: He says that it was during his former Confinement in the Castle that he learnt the Villainy which brought him to his present unhappy State. The following are the Circumstances of the Mur- der committed by R. Rooke, at the Instigation of Daw, late a Farmer at Ashle worth :--- Daw, who is a substantial Farmer, upwards of 70 years old, and a married Man, had been for some Time connected with one Hannah Manns; the Con- sequence of this Connection was that she became Pregnant. Her Situation was suspected by several Persons, but not known to a Degree of Certainty. In March last a new- born Infant was found under Hay Rick at Winstone, in this County, where it had perished by the Inclemency of the Weather, Hannah Manns appearing Abroad, without her great belly, a Suspicion prevailed that she was the Mother of the Child which had been thus cruelly Exposed. Upon this the Parishioners of Ashleworth applied to Sir William Strachan for his Warrant; In Consequence of which the whole Story came out before that active and worthy Magistrate: And upon The Trial of Rooke and Daw it appeared in Evi- dence as follows; that upon Hannah Mann's dis- closing her Situation to Daw, he attempted to pre- vail upon her to swear that another Person was the Father of the Child ; that she refused to comply with that Request ; that Daw then threatened to Prosecute her with the utmost severity, if the Mat- ter was not kept a Secret, and for that Purpose in- sisted upon her lying in at one Paulina Lane's House, where she was afterwards delivered ; that the Child was strong and healthy, and very likely to live; that upon the Birth of the Child there was much Conversation upon the Means and the Necessity of ecreting it; that Hannah Rooke, the Prisoner's Wife, took the Child from its Mother, informing her, that she was to carry it to a Place where pro- per Care would be taken of it. Hannah Rooke took the Child to her Father- in Law's; the Prisoner Rooke having been prevailed upon by Daw to leave the Child in some Place at a Distance from Daw's House, where no Suspicion was likely to fall upon Daw, and a Horse having been provided for the Purpose by Daw, Rooke carried the Child from his Father's to the Place where it was found, laid it under a Hay Rick, put some Hay upon the Ground, and then covered the Child with Hay in the best Manner that he could to keep it warm without ssisling it. The Severity of the Season, however, soon destroyed the poor Infant, the Frost and Snow being then on the Ground Rooke confessed the fact as above dated, and said he was induced to act this Part of the Crime by the Bribes and Premises of Rooke, guilty of the Murder, and Daw guilty of being accessary thereto before the Fact. The judge, in pronouncing Sentence of Death upon the Pri- soners, expatiated upon the accumulated Guilt of Daw, whose Age and Situation, as a married Man, ought to have restrained him from the Incontinence which was the Source of the subsequent Criminality; and observed, that the horrid Inhumanity of ex- posing an helpless Infant, the Issue of his own Loins, to be destroyed by Vermin, or to perish with Cold, aggravated the Crime of Murder to the highest De- gree ; and that although, by procuring another Hand to commit the Fact, the Law denominated him an Accessary only, yet, in Guilt, he was clearly the Principal. Rooke was reprieved. LONDON, Monday, Sept. 7. His Majesty, as Elector of Hanover, has autho- rised the Chamber of the Electorate to advance, according to their Wants, certain Sums of Mo- ney, from the Funds, to such industrious Farmers as find themselves distressed at Seed- Time, on Condition they re- pay the Money at Harvest; also, to give certain Rewards to such as break up and cultivate barren Grounds. By another Or- dinance, he has established a School or Seminary, for the instructing Boys in Arts and Husbandry, on the Plan of those instituted in Saxony and Moravia. The unexpected Revolution in Sweden is con- fidently asserted to be the deep- laid Scheme of the King of Prussia, to which he easily brought his Nephew, the young King, to accede. The Event of his Plan has answered the ambitious Projects of his Prussian Majesty, who will now, in Fact, from his Influence over the youthful Mo- narch, reign in Sweden as powerfully as in his own Country. The Swedes in the last War took Part again it Prussia ( by the Power of the States, in Opposition to the Desires of the late King ;) but, by this important political Stroke, the cun- ning Frederick has secured himself from any such Circumstance in any future War. The following Notice has been printed in the Swedish Gazettes, and stuck up at the Gate of the Palace, and all the public Places in Stockholm: — " This is to give Notice, That his Majesty his fixed the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, in every Week, for Days of public Audience, be- tween the Hours of Four and Five in the After- noon, when any of his Majesty's Subjects, of whatever Rank or Condition, shall have free Ac- cess to his Person, and be at Liberty to present Petitions." We arc told that a Method will shortly be taken for more effectually Hopping the Exportation of all raw Materials which the English possess ex- clusively, and which are not to be purchased by other Nations till they have been manufactured here. The Portugal Trade, which some Years since used to produce above a Million a Year in Favour of England, does not now amount to above 1oo, 0o0l. per Annum. They write from Leghorn, that the French are cutting down whole Forests in the Island of Cor- sica for naval Ship Timber, to be exported to Marseilles, Bred, Rochfort, and Toulon. Letters from Corsica inform, that the Duties laid on all English Goods imported into that Island, are so high, that they almost amount to a Prohibition. Advices by the last French Mail inform us, that Monsiour Count Montenard, late Secretary for Foreign Affairs, has consented to take upon him the Government of Corsica, and relinquish all his other Employments. This is the Gentle- man who has lately formed and digested the Plan for the Administration of Affairs in that Island on the Footing of a provincial or grand Depen- dency of the Crown of France. A Person just arrived from Pensacola, reports, that the Spaniards have collected to Ships of War and 6000 Land Forces, at La Vera Cruz. A Variety of Letters by Yesterday's French Mail, confirm the Report of a very great House having failed in Cadiz to the Amount of Eight Millions of Dollars, and upwards; that is, nearly Two Millions Sterling. A Correspondent has sent us the following In stance of French Justice : — A Minister of State in Paris, some Time past, having an Inclination to enjoy another Man's Wife, who had consented to his Request, ordered, the better to accomplish his Scheme, a Letter de Cachet against the unfortu- nate Husband ; but a Friend having Notice of the Minister's Intention, desired Mr. — , the Husband, to quit Paris for two Days under an urgent. Necessity, and not to ask any farther Questions till he returned. He obeyed, and at Midnight the Marechausses entered the House, and without Ceremony proceeded to the Hus- band's Chamber, where the Secretary was in Bed with the Adultress of a Wife. The Officer of Justice not knowing but it was the unfortunate Object they were in Pursuit of, seized upon the guilty Wretch, who was obliged to discover him- self, and own his Infamy !- How happy is the Reflection of an Englishman, that no Slave of Authority dare sport with either his Life, or Li- berty, or Property! In a Letter from Paris, there is an Instance of the Fallibility of Inoculation for preventing the Small- pox in the natural Way. The Chevalier d' Arpagon, who some Years ago was inoculated by the celebrated M. Gatti, the Sutton of his Country, is just recovered from that Disorder, with which he was seized after visiting a Friend who lay ill with it in the natural Way, A Correspondent desires to have the following inferred for the Advantage of the Public, viz. " That having received a dangerous Cut in his Leg some Time ago, he tried various Experiments commonly used to stop the Effusion of Blood, but without the lead Efficacy, until the Wound had bled about twenty Hours, and his Life was in great Danger, when he washed the Wound with a Decoction made of the Bark of Bass Wood, and then spreading some of the said Bark on the Wound, the Blood in about three Minutes after entirely Hopped, and did not bleed afterwards. It is said that a certain capital Brewer lost lately no less than 5o. oool. by bad Beer returned We are assured that his Majesty will in future totally withdraw all the Royal Plates bestowed at the Races, since the Motive on which they were originally given is not only ceased, but productive of mischievous Consequences to the Public, by promoting exorbitant Gaming on the Turf, and contributing to the over- numerous Breed of Horses, and thereby lessening the Rearing Black Cattle, which has been of late severely felt. We hear the Dutchess of Cumberland has en- tered into a Style of domestic Economy which does her particular Honour. She audits herself every Month the inferior Servants' Accounts, the upper Domestics quarterly, humanely considering, that a Number of well- meaning People of Fashion, from the Want of seeing the Whole of their Expences constantly before them, are from thence too often induced to exceed their Incomes, and consequently make those Sufferers who are least able to bear. It is said, and we mention it as very much to the Credit of a noble Lord who has the Care of a Royal Personage's Education, that from his un- common Attention to his Pupil's natural Disposi- tion, he has pretty well corrected a Turbulence and Positiveness of Temper, which in the Beginning of his Lordship's Preceptorship were very alarm- ing. His Lordship has been obliged to confine him at Times three Days together in a small Room, without any Amusement or Attendance than what was barely necessary for common Occasions. Saturday at Noon the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor held a Wardmote at the School- House in St. Mary Axe, for the Election of an Alderman for Lime- Street Ward, in the Room of Sir Robert Kite, deceased, when Mr. Martin, late one of the Sheriff's for the City of London, was chosen with- out Opposition. A Law that might effectually stop the perni- cious Practice of Gaming in the public Funds, of buying and selling Stocks for Time, which the Seller hath not in his Possession, nor the Buyer Money to pay for, hath been long wanted and wished for ; and no other Reason can be assigned why a Law, so very necessary for the Community, hath not been made, but that we had a gambling Government. Persons, who are in Power, have always an Opportunity of knowing such Matters, or Pieces of Intelligence, as are likely to raise or fall the Stocks, sooner than other People, and have frequently taken the unjust Advantage there- of, and, by Gaming in the Alley, have gained immense Sums out of the Pocket of the Public. And this is the true and only Reason why the Ministry will not suffer a Law to be made that may effectually prevent the iniquitous Practice of Gaming in the public Funds. It is said that a Measure has been hit upon, which will certainly put an End to every Species of Maccaronism for the future, by laughing it en- tirely out of Countenance. Several Persons of Fortune ( Ladies as well as Gentlemen) are sub- scribing a Sum to purchase a Number of Dresses in the highest Maccaroni Taste. These are to be given to Chairmen, Porter, Carmen, Watermen, and other low People, who ate to be handsomely paid for wearing them, not only in their several Occupations, but in traversing the Park, and other public Places, Arm in Arm, in Groupes. Some of the Clubs for the Irish Chairmens Hair are made as thick as the Wearers Legs ; and all their other Habiliments equally preposterous. The Mode of arresting a celebrated Lady ( Mrs. Corneleys) now in the King's Bench Prison, is said to be very whimsical: Two Bailiffs, dressed very magnificently, went to see the House, which was constantly shewn to People of Distinction ; after walking about a long Time, they affected a Quarrel, and drew; the Servants called for Help; the Lady issued in a violent Agitation from the Apartment where she was safely locked up, and one of the Catchpoles telling her she was his Prisoner, terminated the Fray, though little to her Satisfaction. The following Instance of a most benevolent Disposition in a Person of low Station may be de- pended upon as a Fact. - Two Brothers, the one a Carman, the other a Sailor, had been confined for a Misdemeanor some Time in the King's Bench Prison. They applied to the Court to be dis- charged, but were opposed by the Prosecutor. The Court directed the Sailor to be released, and the Carman was ordered to be continued in Con- finement. The Sailor addressed the Court as fol- lows: " My Lord, my Brother has a Wife and seven Children, who starve whilst he cannot work. I have neither Wife nor Child. If your Lordship would be so kind as to let him go, and let me stay in Gaol for him, I shall be very much obliged to your Lordship." Lord Mansfield immediately called to the Prosecutor's Council, to say, " Whe- ther, after such a Speech, he could press for Con- finement of either of the Men ?" The Council replied, " He should be ashamed to do it." Upon which his Lordship told the Sailor, he was a very honed Fellow, and that he and his Brother should both be discharged; which they were im- mediately. On Monday last seventeen Pieces of rich Muslin, some of them flowered with Gold, were seized at a great Lady's near St. James's. Friday Morning early a large Seizure of smug- gled East India Cottons, Muslins, and Tea, was made at a House at Rotherhithe, on the Informa- tion of a Waterman. A great Number of Journeyman Jewellers are now out of Employment to the inconceivable Distress of themselves and Families, owing to the great Quantity of Jewellery Work just returned from India where the Demand of that Commo- dity has greatly diminished of late. Friday Betts ran at the ' Change Five to One that a Convict under Sentence of Death will be executed before the Expiration of fourteen Days. On Wednesday Evening lad about six or seven Lads, the eldest not above sixteen Years of Age, Sons of some reputable Butchers in Bloomsbury- Market, went round the said Market out of a Frolic with Marrow- Bones and Cleavers, when they stopped before the Shop of a Woman who Manner as the Ham- stringing of an Ox : The Effusion of Blood was so great, that he fainted several Times, and, it is thought he will lose his Leg if not his Life. The Woman was secured and carried to New Prison, Clerkenwell. Extract of a Later from Copenhagen, Aug. 18. " The Tripoline Ambassador went lately to see the Royal Museum, the Chamber of Antiqui- ties, and the rest of the remarkable Curiosities ; by Chance he came to see the Sufferers lying upon the Wheel, which shocked him terribly, and he took an Occasion to speak to his Majesty about it, when his Majesty was much astonished to hear such News, and declared he knew nothing about it; and immediately Orders were issued to take the Bodies off and to bury them." A Letter from an English Gentleman, near Dijon in Burgundy, to a Gentleman in Town, has the following Paragraph : The Distresses of this unhappy Country seem rather to increase than diminish : A few Days ago, no Person being seen for some Days to go in or out of a House in this Neighbourhood, the Door was at length forced open, and a Woman and her two Children were found starved to Death!— He adds, " This is but one Instance out of many, of what the op- pressed, wretched Inhabitants of this Country suffer from their Tyrant Masters, in a Region not inferior to any in Europe, for yeilding every Blessing and Comfort of Life." A Woman, aged 69, is lately brought to Bed at Paris of a Boy, well made, and who enjoys the bed State of Health. Last Wednesday a Clerk to a Merchant of this City was sent by his Master with Bills to several Places to the Amount of 3600l. which he re- ceived the Cash for, and made off with; he was on Thursday traced into the Borough, where he hired a Horse for Rochester. Some Persons went immediately in Pursuit of him. Friday Morning early, some Villains broke into the House of-------------- Franks, Esq; at Isleworth, and stole Plate and other Goods to the Value of upwards of 30I. The Villains are supposed to be Jews, as several of them have been seen lurking about that Place for some Time past. A Letter from Lawshall in Suffolk, dated Aug. 31, says, " Last Saturday Night an Inhabitant of this Parish, who had for some Years been severe to the Poor, by with- holding the Corn from them, and in not suffering them to glean or gather up the loose Corn dropt by the Harvest- Men, but would tarn in his Hogs and Cows to eat it, was, on his Return from Sudbury Market, met in a dark narrow Lane by several Men in Disguise, who pulled him from off his Horse, and beat him in a most inhuman Manner, then dragged him through a little River, which ran by the Side of a Lane; after which they swore they would hang him up to dry, which they did, and then left him, saying they had stopped him from oppressing the Poor any more. A Person who happened to be behind the Hedge, and heard what passed, but durst not interpose ( as there were seven or eight of them) lest they should serve him in the same Manner, immediately cut him down, and another Farmer coming from the Market at that Instant, they took him to an ad- jacent House, where by proper Care he recovered his Speech, but is so dangerously ill from the Bruises, that it is thought he cannot live."

The Russian Ambassador received, on the 11th Instant, some Dispatches sent by the Plenipotentiaries at the Congress, Which were brought by a Courier in seven Days From Fokzany, with Advice that the first: Con- ferences took Place on the 2d Inst. The Turkish and Russian Plenipotentiaries began by recipro- cally making rich Presents to each other, consis- ting, on the Part of the former, of Tapestry, Arms, Harness, Silks, and Coffee ; and on the Part of the latter, of Watches, Snuff- Boxes, Rings, and other Trinkets made of Gold, ornamented with precious Stones. Warsaw, Aug. 19. The Fate of Czenstochau Is at last decided ; that Fortress, after having long been the Bulwark of the Confederates, was forced so surrender to the Russians on the 15th Instant, who found therein an immense Magazine, and 150 Pieces of Cannon. Warsaw, Aug. 21. We learn that the conta- gious Infection has again manifested itself on the Banks of the Neister, where there have fallen prodigious Quantities of Rain and Hail. A Band of 150 Peasants have joined together, who lave cruelly assassinated several Nobles, Priests and Jews, in order to come at their Effects. Some Troops are sent from Kaminiec, in order, if pos- siable, to suppress these Miscreants. Copenhagen, Aug. 22. Our Court has received by Express, the News of a Rebellion in Sweden, General Huth sets out To- morrow for Norway ; o0o Fusils have been drawn out of our Arsenal, In Order to be embarked for that Country. Mr. Hagerus, Deputy to the Northern Chamber, and Mr. Busolman, are going to discharge a Commis- sion in Sweden, the King of which, it is said, actually meditates on increasing his Forces both ly Sea and Land, and that for this Purpose, he as given Orders to build new Ships, and has ettled Places of Rendezvous for Recruits in dis- erent Parts of the Kingdom. AMERICA. Philadelphia, " July 22. Since our last arrived ere Capt. Lawrence from Porto Rico, by whom e learn, that there were at that Place a Number English sailors, and two Captains, whole Ves- sles were taken by the Spainards under frivolous Capacity of a Mate died there in May last by the ill Usage of the Spaniards. Captain Russel, from Dominica, informs, that Admiral Man, with the Squadron under his Com- mand, the Troops and Artillery from Dominica, Granada, and other Islands, where arrived at St. Vincent's, where, with the Assistance of other Regiments daily expected, it was said, they were to form a Line to keep the Indians in Awe, and to stop their Communication with the French, who had several Times instigated them to be trou- blesome to the English settled in that Island. Providence, July 6. Since our last Capt. John Peck arrived here from the River Missisippi, with whom came Passenger Joseph Nash, Esq; of this Town, by whom we learn, that since the Conclu- sion of the Peace the French and Spaniards had seduced seven Nations of Indians from the Eng- lish, by Means of Medals, Colours, and other Presents, and settled them on the Western Banks of the Missisippi, but that John Thomas, Esq; Deputy Superintendant of Indian Affairs in that Department, had lately arrived there, and from his former Acquaintance with the Indians, and the surprising Influence he has over them, all the above Nations have determined to return and set- tle on the English Side of the River. The war- like Nations of the Arkansas have determined to join the Chickesaws, Shawanese, and Cherokees, in a War against the Kickapoos, for killing some English Sealers on the Ohio and Missisippi. COUNTRY NEWS. Canterbury, Sept. 5. On Monday Afternoon a large Ball of Fire sell upon Chatham Hill, very near to a Gentleman on Horseback, and some Company in a Chaise ; the Horse with the Rider sell instantly to the Ground, the Company in the Chaise were exceedingly terrified, and when the Ball burst, we are well assured the Explosion ex- ceeded the Report of a Cannon. The Gentle- man whose Horse sell with him received no Hurt, but assures us, the Rapidity of its Motion, added to its vast Effusion of Light, totally deprived him of Sight and Sense for some Time. The Ball burst in a Field close by the Road Side, but left no Appearance of its Effects except throwing up a small Quantity of Mould. LONDON, Tuesday, Sept. 8. His Excellency the Danish Ambassador waited on his Majesty Yesterday Afternoon at Kew, with whom he had a Conference. This Morning one of his Majesty' Messengers was sent off from St. James's, with Dispatches to Copenhagen and Stockholm. We learn from Stockholm, that a great Num- ber of the principal Nobility have refused sign- ing the Paper owning the King's Independency, in Consequence of which they have been banished to their Estates. Extract of a Letter from Copenhagen, Aug. 23 " The Privy Council has been assembled seve- ral Times in the Course of lad Week, and sat again Yesterday till very late in the Evening. Great Preparations are since making in our Ma- rine, which cannot have the Mediterranean for their Object, as Peace is reestablished with the Corsairs of Barbary. These Movements have re- wakened the Attention of our Speculates, but as yet we know nothing further of these Armaments. It is true indeed, that the Ships which are returned from the Mediterranean, have landed the Troops they had on board ; but no Order has yet been received for disarming those Vessels. Two Ad- vice- Boats have this Day taken in Provisions for the Baltick, and other Preparations are making, which seem to indicate as if it were apprehended that some Blow would speedily be struck in that Part." From the Archipelago we learn, that howso- ever earnest the belligerent Powers may be to put an End to the present War, they seem to be both equally preparing for a vigorous Prosecution of it in case the friendly Interposition of the Courts of Berlin and Vienna should prove fruitless ; scarce a Day passing at Constantinople in which some fresh Reinforcement is not added to the Arma- ments destined for the BlackSea, and the Recovery of the Crimea ; besides the Divan hath lately de- creed eighty- five Courses to Mustapha Oglou, Governor of Salonica and Caramania, in order to raise a Body of Turkish Cavalry, with which that Pacha with all possible Expedition is to join the Army of the Grand Vizir. A Correspondent from Dublin assures us, that the Estimate of the late Augmentation on the military Establishment of Ireland, amounts to 40,5321. 12s. 2d. for the last Year, exclusive of all other military Expences. We hear a newly- arrived Governor has laid some Propositions before a certain Board, which will be of equal Utility to the Colonies and the Mother Country. A Correspondent observes, that if a great Prince had the same Consideration for the lower Orders of his Br— sh Subjects as we are told he has lately shown for those of Hanover, how many industrious Families might he raise from De- spondence, by only lending them small Sums for a limited Time, to be repaid and drawn from a Treasury appointed for that Purpose. Three Ships of War, with a Regiment of Ma- rines, are ordered to fail immediately for the East Indies. Extract of a Letter from Paris, dated Aug. 28. " France having secured, by the last Treaty of Peace, the Liberty of fishing for Cod on the Great Bank of Newfoundland, in was in Conse- quence agreed to grant her an Establishment in the little Island of Miquelon, near Newfound- land, that the French Fishermen might go thither to dry their Cod. Some Englishmen, undoubt- edly jealous that the said Fishery might prosper more than their own, came in a forcible Man tier, and destroyed the Establishment at Mique- lon. The King of England being informed of this Violence, immediately dispatched a Courier, not only to disavow it, but also to declare that We can assure our Readers from the best Au- thority, that Lord Sandwich is at this Time plan- ning a Scheme, which is to be laid before Parlia- ment at their next Meeting, for a Registry of Seamen to be kept in the Manner practised by mod of the Maritime Powers of Europe. The Lords Lyttelton and Temple, with their Ladies, are now on a Visit to Lord Camden, at Chisselhurst, in Kent. It is said this Trium- virate are planning some very wholesome Schemes for the public Welfare. We hear that Mr. Burke, Mr. Cornwall, and the Solicitor General have been pressed to carry the superintending Commission into Execution with unlimitted Powers; but that those Gentle- men have peremptorily refused. The late Offer of Supervision made by the Di- rectors of the East India Company to Mess. Burke, Wedderburne, and Cornwall, it is generally thought was only a Feint to give a more colour- able Pretence to the Appointment of their own Creatures, G-------- l M------- n, A. S----------- t, and L. M ------ ne, as it was previously well known the first- mentionced Gentlemens Situations would pre- vent them from accepting that Offer. Extract of a Letter from Rye, in Sussex, Sept. 6. " This Morning about Six o'clock, one of our Boats, on a Signal of Distress from Captain Cloake's Cutter of this Port, landed Mr. Fordyce of London, whom the Captain had taken on board the preceding Evening at Bologne, after landing Mr. B y of London. Cloake's Cut- ter had struck on a Wreck about Four o'Clock in the Morning, about a Mile from the Shore, which knocked a Hole in her Bottom ; she immediately drew so great a Quantity of Water as put the Crew in the utmost Terror and Distress, but most providentially they were enabled by the Assistance of the Pumps and Buckets to get her into shallow Water by the Time she filled." Yesterday arrived in Town Mr. Fordyce. Mr. Fordyce is to make his first Appearance before the Commissioners next Saturday. The Creditors of Mr. Fordyce's House ( we mean the non- consenting ones in the liberal Al- lowances made to his Partners) have formed so strong an Opposition to the Conduct of the As- signees, with Respect to the Presents, that we are told the Gentlemen who accepted the Trust, have proposed to relinquish it, if justified by the Opinion of the Chancellor. A Gentleman has lately made a Calculation by which it appears, that in the Space of seven Year last past 22,000 Houses have been built with- in this City and its Environs. A large Quantity of Beer, Cyder, and Perry, has lately been sent as a Present to the Prince of Monaco from a Great Personage. It is said Lady G r has lately put herself under the Protection of the Earl of B . A Machine has lately been invented and exhi- bited by an ingenious Gentleman in Yorkshire, which absolutely outdoes every Thing of the Sort that ever yet appeared. It is calculated to take off all Friction in Wheel Carriages, or, in short, every Thing which runs on Axles; a Scheme which has always been thought impossible how- ever, it is certainly true that it is now done. No one who has seen the Machine makes the least Doubt but all labouring Friction is prevented ; that a Carriage will run better without than with Grease, and in so easy a Manner that two Horses will draw as much as four on the present Plan. There is Advice from Dunkirk, that an Eng- lish Gentleman of Fortune is put under an Arrest for giving a Challenge to a certain great Officer belonging to the Houshold of France.

THE following Law Changes are deter- mined on, and will certainly take Place in a very short Time : — Lord Chief Baron Parker, who will retired with a Pens0n, will be succeeded Baron Smyth ; and the Vacancy occasioned on th Exchequer Bench by this Removal will be filled by the Recorder of London. His Majesty is very eager for the Ohio Settle- ment, and by his Order the Plantation Office very busy in settling all the necessary Steps carrying it into Execution immediately. Orders have been lately issued from the W Office for building several new Forts on the Ban of the Rivers Missisippi and St. Laurence. The King of Poland wrote lately with his own Hand to a certain Great Personage, begging th Interposition of this Kingdom in the present cal mitous Situation of that Country, but Answer we sent back, that Great Britain would by no Mean embroil itself with continental Affairs. We hear from Dantzick, that the People no there seem quite submissive to the Prussian Yoke and have lost every Idea of their former Inde- pendency ; every Tax has been raised, especially that of Capitation ; to avoid such Proceeding many of the principal Inhabitants are daily re- moving with their Effects. They write from the Hague, that the State General have lately sent a Memorial to the Court of Copenhagen, complaining of some Encroach- ment of the Danes on the Dutch Trade in the Levant. A Gentleman just arrived from Calais inform that Patrick Kennedy, capitally convicted some Time ago for Murder, who received his Majesty' Pardon on Condition of being transported so Life, lives in a gay Manner at that Place ; that he is a constant Attendant at the Billiard Table a Mrs. Johnson's, the Crown, always appears ex- tremely genteel, and is admitted into the be Company. WORCESTER, Thursday, September 10. At our Market, last Saturday, 309 Pockets of Hops were sold ; viz. 231 New, and 78 Old. The general Prices of both were from 4l. 10s to 5l. 15s. per Hundred. On Monday last died, of an Inflammation on his Bowels, Mr. Wadd, Supervisor in the Excise in Bromsgrove District — a Man of an unble- mished Character. A few Days ago two Boys washing in a Brook near Stroud in Gloucestershire, one of them tro on the Stump of a Tree, and turning about her saw the Head of a Woman rise to the Top of th Water. Frightened out of their Wits, the Boy ran Home, and told what had happened ; upon which the People went to the Place, and found the Body of a Woman with a Child tied to her which seemed as if they had lain in the Water several Days. Upon Examination it proved to be the Body of a Woman who was called Poll Jen kins, and the Child was a Bastard she had lately had. — One House, a Carpenter, who kept Com- pany with the Woman, has been taken up on Suspicion of murdering her, as some People de- posed that they heard the Cries of a Woman a few Nights before the Discovery of the Body ; but it is supposed there is not Evidence sufficient to fix it on that Man, as he was not committed to Gaol on Monday. LUDLOW RACES. On Wednesday the 2d Inst. the 50l. was won by Sir Richard Phillips's Macaroni, at two Heats, beating Mr. Woolley's Whynot.

ASSING by a Village, I saw a Company of Pea- sants, their Eyes dejected and wet with Tears, were entering a Church. The Sight struck me ; allowed them; I saw the Corpse of an old Man, the Habit of a Peasant, whose white Hairs hung own to the Ground. The Pastor of the Village unted a small Eminence, and said, " My Fellow- Countrymen, " The Person you here fee was for ninety Years a nesactor to Mankind. He was the Son of a Hus- ndman, and in Infancy his feeble Hands attempted guide the Plough. As soon as his Legs could port him, he followed his Father in the Furrows. hen Years had given him that Strength for which had long wished, he said to his Father, Cease om your Labours: And from that Time each ing Sun has seen him till the Ground, sow, plant, reap the Harvest. He has cultivated more than thousand Acres of fresh Land. He has planted e Vine in all the Country round about; and to m you owe those Fruit- Trees that nourish your age, and afford you Shelter from the Sun. It as not Avarice that made him unwearied in his labours ; no, it was the Love of Industry, for which was wont to say Man was born; and the great d sacred Belief that God regarded him when cultivating his Lands for the Nourishment of his children. " He married and had twenty- five Children. He rmed them all to Labour and to Virtue, and they have all maintained an unblemished Character. He as taken Care to marry them properly, and led them with a smiling Aspect to the Altar. All his Grand- Children have been brought up in his House ; and you know what a pure unalterable Joy dwells pon their Countenances. All these Brethren love another, because he loved them, and made them see what Pleasure lie found in loving them. " On Days of Rejoicing he was the first to sound he rural Instruments ; and his Looks, his Voice, and Gesture, you know, were the Signals for universal Mirth. You cannot but remember his Gaiety, the vely Effect of a peaceful Mind; and his Speeches of Sense and Wit; for he had the Gift of ex- cising an ingenious Raillery without giving Of- fence. He cherished Order, from an internal Sense had of Virtue. Whom has he ever refused to erve? When did he shew himself unconcerned at public or private Misfortunes? When was he in- different in his Country's Cause? His Heart was devoted to it; in his Conversation he constantly for its Prosperity. When Age had bent his Body, and his Legs under him, you have seen him mount to the Summit of a Hill, and give Lessons of Experi- ence to young Husbandmen. His Memory was the faithful Depository of Observations made during the ourse of fourscore successive Years, on the Changes the several Seasons. Such a Tree planted by his land, in such a Year, recalled to his Memory the favour 0r the Wrath of Heaven. He had by Heart what other Men forget, the fruitful Harvests, the Deaths and Legacies to the Poor. He seemed to be ndowed with a prophetic Spirit, and, when he me- itated by the Light of the Moon, he knew with what Seeds to enrich his Garden. The Evening before his Death he said, My Children, I am draw- ing near to that Being who is the Author of all Good, whom I have always adored, and in whom I To- morrow prune your Pear Trees, and at he Setting of the Sun bury me at the Head of my Grounds. You are now, Children, going to place aim there, and ought to imitate his Example : But before you inter these: white Hairs, which have so ong attracted Respect, behold with Reverence his ardened Hands; behold the honourable Marks of his long Labours." The Orator then held up one of his cold Hands. It had acquired twice the usual Size by con- tinual Labour, and seemed to be invulnerable to the Point of the Briar, or the Edges of the Flint, He then respectfully kissed the Hand, and all the Company followed his Example. His Children bore him to the Grave on three Sheaves of Corn, and buried him as he had desired, placing on his Grave his Hedging Bill, his Spade, and a Plough Share.

Among all the Arts and Sciences that fill the Circle of human Learning, there is not one that has more Claim to our Attention than GEOGRAPHY ; a Science that enter- tains while it instructs, and blends the most pleasing Ideas with the most valuable Acquisitions of Knowledge. If it should be asked wherein we apprehend this Work is superior to the several Geographical Grammars al- ready extant, the Answer is easy: The Picture, of which those Authors delineated the Outlines only, is here com- pleated. The small Compass they were confined to, obliged them to give short, and often imperfect Sketches of the different Particulars of the terraqueous Globe, leaving the more useful and valuable Parts to be described by others. This we presume will be granted, when it is known that the vast Continent of Africa is confined to less than two Sheets, even in the most comprehensive Geographical Grammar yet printed. We will, however, venture to pronounce this Performance not only A Geo- graphical Grammar, but also A Complete System of Geography. By His Majesty's Letters Patent, ( Granted to WALTER LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) is recommended the Justly Famous PILL, called in the Patent, PILULA SALUTARIA; And there pronounced to be a Cure for the VENEREAL DISEASE, SCURVY, and RHEUMATISM. IN fifteen or eighteen Days it generally cures those cruel Disorders, and where it fails of perfectly restoring Health in that Time, the Patient has the happy Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being restored, let the De- gree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the complaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter, which they soon dislodge and expell. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Re- storer, by taking only eight single Pills ( at instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year. In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and uni- versal Fame. These Pills are most worthy a Place in the Ca- binet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the more so, for that they require no Confinement, nor Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Climates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation fails. Sold by the Patentee ( in Boxes of 2s. 6d. each) at his House No. 16, Bride Lane, Fleet Street; who effectually cures Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses: Also sold by Ap- pointment by Mr. Hart, Druggist, in Wolverhampton, Aris and Co.

By Authority of his Majesty's Royal Letters Padent, granted to J. Burrows, M. D. VELNOS' Vegetable SYRUP, Proved by general Experience to be a sovereign Remedy in the most inveterate and complicated Venereal, Scorbutic, and Scrophulous Cases. To Dr. BURROWS. SIR, I Have the Pleasure to acquaint you, that I have received a very extraordinary Cure, by taking Velnos Vegetable Syrup. For upwards of 12. Years I had been af- flicted with so dangerous and virulent a Scurvy, as affected me in almost every Part of my Body, particularly my Throat, Head, and Face; it was with the utmost Difficulty that 1 swallowed any Thing, and I had several running Wounds in my Head and Face ; in short, my Condition was really most miserable, having besides intolerable Plains in my Head 2nd Limbs ; but upon taking a few Bottles of the Vegetable Syrup, according to your Directions, I was re- stored to a perfect State of Health, in every Respect, and am now as well as I ever knew myself, and have the greatest Reason to believe 1 am radically cured. I think myself bound in Justice to your excellent Medicine, being fully per- suaded, that the Encouragement of it will be of public Utility, and you have my Leave to publish this, or any Part of it ( if you think fit) for the Good of Mankind, I am, Sir, your bumble Servant Wych- Street, March 30, 1772.

ESSENCE of WATER- DOCK, For the SCURVY. IF there be any yet afflicted with this Disorders who have not tried the Water- Dock, whether from In- attention, or from the supposed Discredit of advertised Me- dicines ( 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 Certainly of Effects, even in the most confirmed Cases, are sufficiently known, from those of Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Garne, Sir Roger Twynsden, and many more, and its Innocence is such, that Infants take it in a proper Dose. There are many other Persons of Distinction, in whose Faces the good Effect of this Medicine may be seen; though it were ill to revive the Me- mory 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. Sold by H. BERROW, Printer, in Worcester, Whom I have appointed my Agent for the Sale of my Medicine Worcester, and Places adjacent ; and all Persons desirous of vending them may be supplied by him on advantageous Terms, Arlington- street, London, Oct. 17, 1766.
