Price Two- pence Halfpenny. T H U R S D A Y, October 22, 1772. Numb. 408 Saturday's and Sunday's Posts. Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Minsk, in Poland, September 18. THE Ruffians, after the Example of the Prussians and Austrians have taken Possession of Polish Livonia and White Russia. On the 21st of this Month the In- habitants of this new Province are to do Homage to the Em- press of Russia and her Successors. The Courts of Justice are to remain upon the old Footing. No new Taxes are to be laid in this Province, and the customary Revenues are already paid to the Russians. COUNTRY NEWS. Southampton, Oct. 11. Friday last, at the Ses- sions for the Town of Southampton, came on the Trial of John Fieldhouse, Esq ; an Officer in the Army, for an Attempt to commit a detestable Crime on a Lad of this Town. About Twelve o'Clock he was brought to the Bar, and pleaded Not Guilty. After a Trial of 7 Hours, the Jury, after withdrawing for a few Minutes, brought him in guilty, and he was sentenced to pay a Fine of 20I. and suffer six Months Imprisonment. It is supposed the Recorder passed the above Sen- tence instead of the usual one of the Pillory, to prevent the dreadful Consequences that were ex- pected to ensue, had that been inflicted on him. Mr. Fieldhouse has been in the Army many Years, is now on Half- pay, and appears to be 50 Years of Age. His Character is said to have been very good till this Affair happened. LONDON, Friday, October 16. Wednesday a Proclamation was issued out by Order of his Majesty, for the Parliament, which stands prorogued to the 17th of November next, to meet on Thursday the 26th of the same Month for the Dispatch of divers weighty and important Affairs. We can assure our Readers, that a Great Per- sonage expects to lie- in in February. A Great Personage has lately given Orders for discharging some of the great Officers on the Esta- blishment in Hanover. Wednesday the Sheriff's attended at Guildhall, pursuant to Notice which had been regularly given, to deliver a Copy of the Poll to each of the Candidates for the Office of Mayor of the City of London for the Year ensuing, when it was much feared by the popular Party that Mr. Alderman Townsend would decline the Scrutiny, as he had not once attended either the Committee or on the Hustings, during the whole Poll. They were however agreeably disappointed by the She- riffs reading to them the following Letter from that Gentleman : " Gentlemen, " I have received from the Secondaries a writ- ten Notice, in your Names, requiring my Atten- dance at Guildhall on Tuesday the 13th Day of October Inst. at Eleven o'Clock in the Forenoon, to receive a Copy of the Poll. I have not hitherto ( and I believe, Gentlemen, you are very sensible that I have not) in any Manner, directly or indi- rectly, taken the least Part in the present Elec- tion for Mayor. Election . to the City Offices is the Business of the Citizens alone : To them it always used to be, and to them believe it always will be left without Solicitation, Influence, or Flattery, whenever Men mean to accept them, merely as Offices of Trust and Burthen, without intending to employ them as the Means of their own private Interest and Advantage. When the Citizens have performed their Part by Election, then only begins the Part of the Person chosen, who is bound by Duty, Honour, and Principle to discharge faithfully the Trust reposed in him. As it appears at present on the Face of the Poll, that it is the declared Opinion of the Livery of London that I should be one of the Persons re- turned to the Court of Aldermen for the Office of Mayor and has a Scrutiny has been demanded in order to discover whether this is the real Sense of the Livery or not, I am very willing to take any proper Steps on my Part to ascertain what is the real Inclination of my Fellow Citizens. I do therefore hereby confirm the Appointment of the Gentlemen who have been nominated to you as my Scrutineers, and desire that the Copy of the Poll may be delivered for me to Mr. Deputy judd, who has promised to attend for that Pur- pose. I have the Honour to be. Gentlemen, Bruce Castle, Your most obedient, Oct. 12, 1772. Humble Servant, J. TOWNSEND." It is impossible to express the Uneasiness which the patriotic Party feel at the unhappy Necessity they are under of publishing the Parties Names who voted at the late Election of Lord Mayor for Hallisax and Shakespeare. They know what a Foundation it will lay of endless Bickerings, Di- visions in Families, and Ruin of Tradespeople. The Livery, who polled for the Court Party, must thank themselves. They have suffered them- selves to be influenced by Menaces and other un- due Means, and now they are betrayed. Halli- sax and Shakespeare demand a Scrutiny ; the in- evitable Conference is, the Poll on both Sides must be published. Tuesday last, at Three in the Afternoon, died, of the Garter. His Lordship was born April 8, 1724, and dying without Issue the Title descends to his Brother, Augustus, Admiral Keppel. His Grace the Duke of Ancaster and the Right Hon. Lord Harcourt are talked of as Candidates for the Blue Ribband ; but it is thought the lat- ter will be complimented with it, in order to add a Dignity to his late Appointment of the Vice- royship of Ireland. The Earl of Chesterfield is said to be so very ill as to be past all Hopes of Recovery. This Noble Lord's blue Ribbon is promised to Lord Holdernesse. We are informed that Lord Townshend's Re- turn from Ireland is entirely at his own Request, and not in Consequence of any Exceptions to his Conduct taken by the Ministry. A Number of Sailors in order to raise their Wages, have come to a Resolution, that no En- glish Ships ( hall go out of the River with a foreign Seaman on board. They have gone about ever since Saturday, obliging all English Sailors to join them. They threaten to pull down the Houses of those Persons who board and lodge foreign Sailors till they can place them in a Ship, and then take their Wages to pay them their De- mands. They went about in a large Body with Colours flying, which threw the Inhabitants in Wapping, Tower- Hill, & c. into such a Conster- nation, that the Headboroughs, Constables, Watchmen, Sec. were called out to prevent any Mischief being done. Another Account fays, that on Wednesday a large Body of Sailors went on board most of the outward- bound Ships in the River, stripped them, and struck their Yards , Topmasts, & c. to prevent their failing till the Wages of the Seamen in ge- neral in the Merchants Service are advanced. It is said, that on Wednesday 10 or 12 Cutters came up the River in order to take into his Ma- jelly's Service such of the above Rioters as were fit for that Purpose. Wednesday about 600 Sailors attended at the East- India House, requesting to be entered into the Company's Service. If the King of Prussia's Plan of Operations are not impeded by any Superior Power who may look upon him with a jealous Eye, he will in all Probability be the moil powerful Prince in Eu- rope. The Kingdom of Poland will soon be in his own Hands ; and, it is said, he has laid a Scheme that will assure him the Assistance of Denmark, and have them devoted to him at any Time. When this Period is arrived, his other Neighbours mull look sharp about them to main- tain the smallest Share of Consequence. Extract of a Letter from a Gentleman in the East- Indies, to hie Friend in Edinburgh, March 22. " As I was employed in the Reduction of Tan- jore, you may depend upon the Truth of the fol- lowing Intelligence, which explains the Founda- tion of the Quarrel, and informs you of the Suc- cess of the Company's Forces. " The Kingdom of Tanjore is perhaps the richest Spot in the World, yielding seldom less than four Crops in the Year, owing to its being plentifully watered from many Rivers that run through it. The constant Wars in the Carnatic, in which it has remained neuter these seventeen Years past, has made it very populous, many of the Inhabitants from that Quarter having stocked thither for Refuge. So soon as the young King of Tanjore's Father died, and he mounted the Throne, from his immense Riches and Populous- ness, he thought himself of sufficient Strength to refuse his annual Tribute to our Nabob, which his Ancestors had always paid. The Nabob often applied to the different Governors for Forces to bring him to Obedience, which they as often refused, till Orders came from the Directors for the late Expedition, in which we succeeded so far as to take Wellum, which is the second Place of Strength in his Country. We then besieged his Capital for six Weeks, which we should have made ourselves Masters of by Force in three or four Days more, had he not complied with the Nabob's Terms. Our Loss killed and wounded was about 700 Men." The Eleanor, Capt. Graves, from Barbadoes, is safe arrived at Bristol after thirty- two Days Passage, and brings an Account of the Death of Governor Spry, Governor of that Island, after a short Illness. The Julius Caesar Tender, with voluntier Sea- men for his Majesty's Ships at Plymouth, was lost in Bristol Channel the 8tn Instant, and 30 Men were drowned. Mr. Jenkins, the truly patriotic Baker at Bris- tol, meets with great Encouragement. He has opened three Shops in that City, and a Fourth at Bedminster. His Shilling Wheaten Loaf weighs eight Pounds, and smaller in Proportion, whilst the Assize continues to be set at 61b. 5 oz. 2dr.— He hath also lowered the Price of his Flour to 44s. the fine ; 42s. the second ; and 40s. the third ; each Sack 280lb. Weight.— It is to be wished some Person would follow the Example in London. Wednesday John Sunderland, alias Sandiland, and John Jones, for a Burglary in the House of Aaron Franks, Esq; at Isleworth, and stealing a Quantity of Plate, & c. ; John Creamer, for re- turning from Transportation ; and John Chap- man, for breaking into the House of Richard Spratley, and stealing a Quantity of Goods, were, the House of a Mrs. Buchanan. A few Even- ings since her Ladyship's Maid brought her a Let- ter to the following Purport ; " Dear Fanny, I'll be with you this Evening at Seven o'Clock " without fail. DELORAINE." She declared she neither knew nor would admit any such Person as Lord Deloraine ; but about Seven o'Clock a Person did come, got Admit- tance into the House, swore she was his Wife, and he would fee her. The Lady was very much frightened, and called out Fire, to alarm the Neighbours, some of whom came, and interpo- sed ; and while the unwelcome Visitors demanded Admittance at the Door of the Lady's Apartment she retired to her Chamber. He at length broke open the Door, and she in her Fright left the House. The Stranger examined her Trunks and Boxes, and then likewise quitted the House with- out offering any further Insult. Mrs. Buchanan deposed, that the Visitors was Lord Deloraine, and she was severely censured for not protecting the Lady in her own ( Buchanan's) House. An Infor- mation was taken from both the Ladies, and a Summons was made cut for his Lordship to ap- pear at Bow- Street the next Morning. Saturday died Mr. Charles Gale, Mailer of the Gloucestershire Public House in the Minories. A singular Circumstance attended his Death : Three Weeks ago he attended the Funeral of a Coun- tryman at Rotherhithe ; on his Return Home he told his Wife he had but a short Time to survive his Friend, and begged he might be left to his Meditations ; accordingly he confined himself to his Room, and died on Saturday last.

NIGEL GRESLEY. October 3, 1772.

THE King has actually in bis Hands the Manifesto, which the Senate in- tended to publish as soon as the Re- giment of Upland should enter the City the 20th of August. It appears this Manifesto, that the Senate had resolved only to take the King into Custody, and send to the Castle of Castenhof, but also to bring to his Trial. Warsaw, Sept. 30. They write from the Da- be, that the Fortifications of Choczim and Ben- are going to be demolished. According to same Advices, the Porte has attempted in vain spring over the House of Austria to their Side, offering her Belgrade and Saville. Altona, Oct. 6. A Corn Merchant at Lubec, so was desirous to take Advantage of the pre- t Price of Corn, in order to make his Fortune, ded his House with that Commodity to such a gree, three Stories high, that a Night or two er the Floors gave way, and himself, with his ck of Corn, were buried in the Ruins. IRELAND. Dublin, Oct. 10. The following Occurrence opened in Athy, during the last Assizes : Some nken Russians began a Quarrel in the Street, view of the Grand Jury Room; that active spirited young Nobleman Lord Kildare, the eriff, seeing the Affray, ran down and seized p of the Ringleaders, and gave them into Cus- tody of the Bailiffs, with a Design to terrify them d then set them at Liberty. Upon the Sheriff's turn into the Jury Room, and relating the tter to some Gentlemen, he was asked if he the Names of the Fellows ; he said the some of one of them was Dowling, and a Tay- by Trade ; whereupon a Man who happened be attending the Grand Jury upon some Pre- nment Business, cried out-" Oh! my Lord, It is the Man who murdered my Brother about r Years ago." This Exclamation brought on Enquiry, when it immediately appeared that Accusation was well grounded ; the Fellow is in Naas Gaol, to stand his Trial next Assizes. is also remarkable that this Man, after the quashing the Order, Mr. Kenyon, one of his Counsel, moved that the Horse- Takers might pay the Penalty forfeited by a wrong Seizure, which they accordingly did, he generously gave it to the Stafford Infirmary. The whole Court, specially posed Perpetration of the Murder, sled from tice, and was but a few Days returned into Kingdom previous to his being taken. COUNTRY NEWS. Glocester, Oct. 19. At Ross Fair there was a ng of Cheats, who defrauded a Country Fel- out of Six Guineas and a Half, by the old ck of provoking him to shew his Money: eof them threw a Bowl of hot Toddy in his es, whilst the other snatched up the Money and off. However, we hear, two of the Gang re apprehended. Birmingham, Oct. 19. A few Days since the ester Machine was robbed on Sutton Coldfield mmon, by a single Footpad, about Three Clock in the Morning. He came out of Sut- Park, presented a Gun to the Coachman, and ered him to stop, declaring at the same Time It he would take nothing from the Outside Passengers. He opened the Coach Door and took n one Passenger six Guineas ; another Gentle- perceiving the Coach stop, had Presence of nd enough to secure his Money ( about: Ten ineas) in his Boots, and his Money being de- nded, he declared he had none, offering at the e Time to stand Search. One of the Outside Passengers had Twenty- seven Guineas in his cket, which he said he should have delivered demanded. The Robber is described to be a y thin short Man, he was muffled up in a eat- Coat, and snuffled much in his Speech. About Seven o'Clock on Thursday Evening as Westley was on his Return from this Town Walfall, he was attacked by a Highwayman r Handsworth Field, and robbed of his Watch, If a Guinea, and some Silver. After he had Committed the Robbery he was pursued through Town to Coventry, but evaded his Pursuers but a Quarter of a Mile on this Side the Co- untry Turnpike. The same Evening a Highwayman attempted rob the Chester Fly at Clemsley Wood near to rd Aylessord's, but Capt. Baldwin being a Passenger ( with two Ladies and a Gentleman) he d him keep off or he would shoot him, and im- mediately fired his Pistol at him, which is sup- posed to have wounded him, his Hat being found next Morning shot through the Fore- Part of Rim. He was seen by the Outside Passengers stall against a Gate near the Spot, and give se- veral Groans. The Horses took Fright at the report of the Pistol and went on. Saturday Morning, between One and Two Clock, as a Gentleman was coming to this own in a Chaise, he was Stopped by a single otpad two Miles on this Side of Castle Brom- ch, who presented two Pistols to his Breast, and bbed him of about 15s . 6d. a Pocket- Book, d his Hat. The Footpad was a tall well- set an, and dressed in a blue Great- Coat. At Stafford Sessions, last Week, was heard an ppeal brought by Mr. Powell, one of the Pro- ietors of the Shrewsbury Waggons, from the etermination of a Magistrate of that County, in e Matter of the Condemnation of a Waggon- orfe seized by some Horse- Takers. It seems these Pests of Society seized a ninth Horse as he drawing up Weston Sands, and unshut him from the other Eight; after some Consultation ey agreed that as there were Horses of more alue in the Team they would take another, the Waggoner hearing this, told them, that as they made their Choice once, they should not chuse- again, and accordingly held the Horse they tended to seize by the Head, on which they ll on him and beat him in so terrible a Manner at his Life was despaired of near three Weeks. For this Assault, we hear, an Information will brought against them in the Court of King's nch next Term. Without entering into the erits of the Case, the Conviction was quashed the Chairman, joined in praising his Disinte- restedness and Generosity. LONDON, Monday, October 19. St. Jame's, October 17. The King has been pleased to appoint unto the Right Hon. George Lord Viscount Townshend, Lieutenant- General of his Majesty's Forces, the Office of the Master- General of the Ordnance. Gazelle. We are assured that the late Transactions in Denmark, relative to the Queen, will be laid be- fore Parliament the ensuing Winter ; and it is thought a War between the two Nations will be the Consequence of it at last. A considerable Sum of Money has been lately remitted to Zell, for the Exigencies of a Great Lady there. The Dukes of Cumberland and Gloucester have formed the most social Intercourse of Families that can be imagined. Though denied the Ho- nour of appearing at Court, they are not denied the Possession of domestic Felicity ; and a Crown of true Content is infinitely superior to all the Diadems that ever yet enriched the Brow of Majesty. As Lord North has been heard publicly to de- clare, that the East- India Company have been embarrassing themselves from the very Moment they began to make Conquests, it is the Opinion of many, that the Reform intended to be made by Parliament will be, that Administration shall take the military Government totally to themselves, and only leave them the Commercial. It is provoking beyond Measure that the mini- sterial Tools still persevere in treating every Man who wishes to be free, as the Scum of the Earth, and one of the base- born Dregs of the People; and the Insolence of these Slaves of Power is not to be restrained by Numbers and a mixt Com- pany : A City Magistrate, a sworn Devotee of the Minister, declared the other Day in a large Meeting, that Mr. Wilkes's Majority was made up of the lowed and meanest of the City Rabble, who had scarce Bread to eat, and that they did not vote for Wilkes from an Opinion they had of his Honour and Abilities, but from a Notion they entertained, . it if he was Mayor he would re- duce the Price of Bread ; he added that he wished to God he could see a Quartern Loaf at the Price of a Shilling, as it would be the Means of hum- bling the Sturdy Beggars of the City, and keep them to hard Labour to earn their daily Bread. Our Correspondent chuses to conceal the Name of this upstart Wretch, this Grinder of the Poor, till he sees whether any of the Company present shall contradict what was said in the Presence of many Persons ; for though he thinks he has not exaggerated the worthy Magistrate's Speech, he would not insert the Name of the Party accused without being sure that his Charge is faithfully stated. It is reported that the Scrutiny for Lord Mayor will last near three Months. If Mr. Wilkes be Lord Mayor the Plan agreed on is, for him to purchase some old Brewhouse, or Warehouse, and turn nominal Trader, and then to break ; in which Case he will be entitled to 400l. per Annum ; this may keep him out of a Gaol till the Rockingham Administration comes into Play again, and once more pension our in flexible Patriot. — St. James's Chronicle. Thursday being the settling Day for India Stock, the Bulls had a Ballance to pay to the Bears to the Amount of 23 per Cent. Only one Lame Duck waddled out of the Alley, and that too for no greater a Sum than 20, oo0l. In the late Election of a Chancellor, Oxford hath evinced her perfect Knowledge of the Mean- ing of the sacred Penman : For, faith the Psalmist, Promotion cometh neither from the East, nor from the West, nor yet from the South. From whence then, said the Houses in Golgatha assem- bled, but from the North. We hear that William Stewart, Esq; Lieut Governor of Dominica, is to be appointed Go- vernor of Barbadoes in the Room of Dr. Spry, deceased. On Tuesday last the Equestrian Statue of his Majesty, which has been these three Years in finishing, in Berkeley- square, was exposed to pub- lic View. The Figure, we apprehend, will be subject to many Censures and Criticisms ; and the most linking is, the Hugeness of its Appearance, far beyond Nature, in any Point of View to the Square. The Character of the Horse seems not ill- designed, but it is certain the Artist had never put the Rules for good Horsemen into the Hands of the Rider, as the Attitude and Air he has been pleased to give him never yet existed in any one System of Horsemanship ; it has, indeed, more the Appearance of a Man hung in Chains, than the noble Character of a Horseman. The Bronze with which it is adorned, is only an Attempt at Excellence, as that Art has never yet attained a Proficiency in this Kingdom. The Whole, it is to be feared, will be looked upon by the Public as a rude indigested Mass, with little Design, and less Execution. The Earl of Deloraine attended on Thursday Morning at the Public- Office in Bow- Street, in consequence of the Summons issued by the Ma- gistrates the preceding Day, requesting him to come and answer a Complaint alledged against his Lordship by Lady Doneraile, as mentioned in the preceding Page; when the Matter was enquired into, it appeared that the Outrage complained of had been committed through an absolute Miscon- ception of the Earl, without the slightest Inten- tion to injure Lady Doneraile ; as she had sworn she went in Danger of her Life, the Earl was un- der the Necessity of giving Security for his future Conduct respecting her. Friday Morning a Number of poor Wretches in Spitalfields, oppressed by the very high Price of Milk, stopped two Milkmen, and obliged them a Monument, in some conspicuous Part of the Country to the Memory of the late ingenious Mr. Brindley, who has contributed so much to the Advantage of that Part of the Kingdom. The following may be depended upon as a Fact: A poor Man at Waterbeach in Cambridge- shire, having two Children, was very desirous that they should have the Small- Pox, but being too streightened in his Circumstances to employ a Surgeon to inoculate them, formed a Scheme, perhaps unheard of before, to do it himself ac- cordingly he came to Cambridge and procured a small Quantity of Matter, which he put the next Morning between two Pieces of Bread and Butter, and gave it to his Children : The Consequence was, they received the Infection, had the Disorder in a favourable Way, and are now hearty and well. They write from Paris, that an Ambassador from one of the Northern Courts has lately been arrested there, on what Account is not publickly known. Letters from Languedoc, in France, bring us an Account of a remarkable Fall of Rain, on the Ninth of the same Month in that Province. It began about Nine in the Evening, and poured down in such. astonishing Streams, that in less than two Hours it swelled the River Chassenac more than 18 Feet above its usual Level, and overflowed the Country for many Miles in Breadth. Its Violence was such, that nothing could withstand it; it bore down Houses and Barns, carried away Cattle, tore Trees up by the Roots, and overset Mills, particularly that of La Tour, the most considerable in the Province and built with incredible Strength. The Torrent was irresistible. It blew up an Arch of the fa- mous Bridge of Chambonas, built by the Ro- mans, and by that Means stopt for a while the Communication between the neighbouring Towns One Church was entirely dripped of its Pews, Altars, and even its holy Vessels, the Stream hav- ing made a clear Passage through its Walls. The oldest Man living never remembered to have seen so much Desolation in so short a Time, the Rain entirely ceasing about Eleven the some Evening. Worcester, Oct. 23, 1772.

The ENGLISH COFFEE, Composed entirely of English Herbs, Roots, Barks. Plants, & c. and Variety of Balsamic Productions.

Colds, Coughs, Asthmas, Consumptions, Shortness of Breath, Faintness, Tremblings, Giddiness, Reachings, Appetite gone, and all Kinds of Rheumatic and Nervous Disorders, from what Cause soever they proceed. In many Parts Abroad the Nobility, Gentry, and others, make constant Use of it.

Price Two Shillings and Six- pence a Canister, ( which is cheaper than other Coffee, or common India Tea) with printed Directions for using it. II.

Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Vienna, October 3. T is a general Report, that the War between the Russians and Turks will become more fierce and bloody than ever. It is pretended that the former will be effectu- ally supported by a pow- erful Ally. The last Letters from Constantinople advise that the Preparations for Kingdom ; that Liberty will be granted them to have Synagogues, to possess Lands; hold Leases, carry on Trade; and, in shorts that they are to enjoy in France all the Rights and Privileges of a Citizen. Lower Elbe, Oct. 9. The Armies of the two belligerent Powers have availed themselves of the Armistice to get Reinforcements. Field Marshal Count de Romanzow has sent Orders to most of the Russian Regiments in Poland to come and join him. The Russians will be two hundred thou- sand strong Fresh Troops arrive daily at the Grand Vizier's Army, which is said to consist of upwards of twenty- five thousand Men. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Oct. 17. We hear from Carlisle, that on Friday Evening last, as Bucks Company of Comedians were performing the Tragedy of King Lear for the Benefit of Mr. and Mrs. Milles, to a crowded Audience, the Upper, Or Six- penny Gallery, which covered that of the Shilling Gal- lery and hung partly over the Pit, on a sudden gave Way, and buried a great Part of the People below for some Time in the Ruins ; happy for them the Scaffold was erected of the slightest Ma- terials, or otherwise a great many must have been killed, as they lay a considerable Time in this mi- serable Situation. The Cries of the Women and Children were truely shocking. Hats, Wigs, Caps, Aprons, and Shoes were by some promis- cuously, and others designedly seized upon in this dreadful Scene of Confusion. — The Windows were thrown open, and the Ladies borne out by the Gentlemen, the Door Passage being stopped by the People coming in, and the Maimed going out. Many, both Male and Female, old and young, were terribly hurt, but happily no Lives lost. In short, there has not happened a greater Piece of Confusion in that City, since the unfor- tunate Charles Stuart paid it a Visit. LONDON, Tuesday, October 20. We hear that the present Lord Lieutenant of Ireland has it in Charge to open his Government with some Acts of Popularity, by Way of throw- ing out a Tub to the Populace; and it is gene- rally thought that Sir Edward Newenham, who lost his Place as Collector, for voting for his Coun- try in the last Administration, will feel the first good Effects of this temporary Influence by be- ing reinstated in his former Office. We are assured that a Great Personage has given Orders to strike off a Number of Sinecures on the Irish and Scotch Establishments, the Mo- nies arising from which are to be appropriated to pay the Pensions. Very disagreeable News is said to have been re- ceived on Friday Night from the Continent. The Swedes have already begun to approach towards the Frontiers of Norway, and the Emperor of Germany towards the Russian Dominions. We learn from Petersburgh, that the Empress, in consequence of a War between Denmark and Sweden, must take Part with the former, owing to a Guarantee Treaty between them. No less than six Expresses were received in the Course of last Week from France, Portugal, Tu- rin, Berlin, Stockholm, and on Sunday another Express was received from Warsaw, which makes it imagined that something of great Importance is on the Carpet. It is generally believed that some secret Com- pact has been recently established between the French and Prussian Courts, a Circumstance in no Degree pleasing to the present Ministry. Orders are sent to Hanover to keep the Troops in constant Discipline, and to complete the Num- ber of every Regiment with all Expedition. This looks as if the Storm gathering in the North was speedily expected to burst, and threatened to be very hostile to a favourite Electorate. A very spirited Memorial is now preparing in order to be sent to the Court of Portugal, relative to the recent Complaints of the English Merchants trading thither. Private Letters from the Hague inform, that a Treaty is on Foot for granting to his Prussian Majesty certain Tracts of Territory in the East Indies, towards extending the Commerce of the new Asiatic Company lately established at Embden. Some Gentlemen belonging to the East India Company, not in the Directorship, have received Orders to attend the Privy Council at St. James's on Wednesday next. It was reported on Sunday, that the West India Planters intend to sue for a Bill next Sessions, for an additional Duty to be laid on the Importation of Coffee from Turkey and the Levant, in order to encourage the Cultivation of Coffee in our American Islands. It is observable, that no less than ten Noble- men, and fifteen Members of Parliament, have already obtained Grants of Lands in East Florida, in order to establish Plantations in that promising Colony. Sunday Night it was reported at the mercantile End of the Town, that the Natives of Madagas- car had rose up on Account of some ill Usage of the French, and cut off two Factories they had established on that Island. We are informed that the Hon. Col. Fitzroy, Brother to the Duke of Grafton, will be ap- pointed Colonel of the Third Regiment of Dra- goons, vacant by the Death of the late Earl of Albemarle. Colonel Luttrell, we hear, is to have a Regi- ment of Horse in Ireland, that will be vacant in Consequence, of the Promotions to take Place on the Death of the Earl of Albemarle. It is said a Great Personage has declared, that if Mr. Wilkes should be returned by the Court of Aldermen, he shall not be permitted to come within his Presence during his Mayoralty It is now known for certain that Hallifax and Shakespear have above a Hundred bad Votes, and that they have no Hopes of Success. The most sanguine of the ministerial Party begin to despair. changed thei r Tone. " Townsend is now the Man. He is a less able, à less dàngerous Ma- gistrate. The King can never fee Wilkes ; he will always feign Sickness, or order the Gates of the Palace to be shut in his Face. The Court would be deserted if Wilkes was admitted; and the Queen would be apt to miscarry at the Sight of his evil Eye. Is it not incumbent on us, as loyal Subjects, to relieve our Sovereign from such Distress? What though Townsend reviled the King's Mother, and talked of his Majesty with Contempt in the Face of all the Representatives of the Nation ; he was not the prime Mover of the Disturbances with which this Reign has been disgraced. That is the Work of Wilkes ; and it is a Crime which cannot be forgiven. Wilkes will never be Lord Mayor." Such is the Lan- guage which the protesting Aldermen have learnt from Harley their Tory- leader. As the Aldermen are resolved to chuse Town- send Lord Mayor, Mr. Wilkes will every Year, till he is chosen, carry the Election upon the Poll, and thus keep up the Flame in the City and in the Nation. Thus is the Ministry, through its own Folly, doing as it has always done, the Business of Mr. Wilkes. Ministerial Opposition is the Life of Mr. Wilkes. Since the Scrutiny has been demanded, Nine Hundred Pounds have been subscribed for his Assistance at the London Tavern. The Sheriffs, we hear, are determined not to allow Council on the Scrutiny, declaring, that as they are the only constitutional Judges of the Point in Question, they will suffer no judicial In- terference, unless the Cause is removed to a Tri- bunal of a superior Nature. The following may be depended on as an undoubted Fact:— A poor Liveryman was taken out of Islington Workhouse, and brought in a Chair to Guildhall to poll for Aldermen Hallifax and Shakespear. He was carried immediately back, and died the next Morning. On Sunday Morning last, about II o'Clock, died, at his Seat near Coventry, John Bird, Esq; Alderman of Bassishaw Ward, to which he was elected ( on the Death of Sir William Baker, Knt.) the 6th of February, 1770. He attended at the last Sessions at the Old- Baily, where he got the Fever, which has been so fatal to several other Persons. Thursday Tho. Stevens, one of the Runners to Newgate, died of the Jail Distemper. The celebrated Capt. Robert Jones has got the Jail Distemper, and lies dangerously ill with it in Newgate.- How cruel it is to keep him in Confinement! By the King's reversing the Sen- tance of Death to Banishment, it implies he is guilty, and that his Majesty, though a reputed devout and orthodox Christian, does not believe the horrid Crime of Sodomy deserving of Death ; and under Pretence of shewing Mercy to the un- fortunate Wretch, punishes him in the most cruel Manner. Land. Even. Post. — Another Evening Paper says, We are assured that Capt. J — is not only out of Newgate, but has received a free Pardon. Our Intelligence affirms, that he has appeared in the Park, Playhouse, and other public Places ( ra- ther indeed incog, but not in any great Degree so) and that several People of Fashion and Con- sequence have been seen to speak to him as fami- liarly as if he had never been charged with the hateful Crime for which he was convicted ; and some Persons of no little Consideration, have even permitted his Visits. There are upwards of thirty Prisoners for Trial for capital Offences at the Sessions at the Old Bailey, which begin To- morrow. Last Night the Purser of the Rochford East- Indiaman, from Bengal, came to the East- India House with the News of the above Ship's being safe arrived off Portsmouth. She failed from St. Helena the 29th of August last, and left no Ship there but the Clive, Captain Allen, who was to fail in a few Days for England. The above Ship that is arrived, has buried upwards of Two- thirds of her Crew, and the rest are very sickly. A London Tradesman, on his Way to Paris, stopt at Calais, and dined with one he took to be an English Gentleman and resident there Amongst other Discourse the Gentleman said he waited for his Commission in the Irish Brigades & c. that on Receipt of it he was ordered to take Shipping for Ireland, where he knew that he could raise 160 Recruits, made Apology for his abrupt Rising after Dinner, saying he was going to play at Billiards for Twenty Guineas.— This Gentleman proved to be one of the Kennedys once notorious in London. On Sunday the Countess of Huntingdon was at Tottenham Court Chapel, with seven young Students, who were educated by her Bounty, and are going to the College at Georgia. On Saturday Evening a young Woman was met in Illington Fields by three Fellows, who all abused her, and used her so ill, that she soon after died in the Field ; some Fellows who frequent a Public- House there, and who are suspected to have committed lately several Robberies in and about Illington, are supposed to be the Persons who have thus abused and murdered the poor Girl. Strict Search is making after them. The Prices of Hops last Week at Weyhill Fair in Hampshire, were, Farnham fine Hops from 61. 6s. to 7I. los. second Sort from 5l. to 61.

NOtwithftanding what has been said against Lord N h, it is an undoubted Fact, that he is every Thing : his Power reduce the Price of Pro visions; and we are well informed that upon the Meeting of the Parliament he determined to stop the Distillation of Barley. And we hear that Lord Camden has been con- sulted by the Premier with respect to some Law relative to the Price of Provisions. The unpopular Aldermen have already mac Objections to 250 of Mr. Wilkes's Votes, but the Scrutiny to put in these Objections formally do not commence till next Saturday. It is upwards of 30 Years since Europe ha been in such universal Commotion as at presen Yet some Politicians seem to be of Opinion, tha the Bustle will have no destructive Consequence The Truth seems to be, that every Pawer is arn ing itself, not because there is any actual Danger but that they may be prepared for the worst. The Folly of supposing that Russia will under take any Thing against Sweden, in her present Situation, destroys itself; she will have Business enough in securing her own Possessions in Poland and in managing her War with the Ottomans. If Great Britain meddles with the Quarrels the Continent, his Majesty will act in the Qua rel as Elector of Hanover only. The Strugg will be for Hanover ; Great Britain has nothing to do with it. The last Letters from Hamburgh intimate that the Inhabitants of Norway, not being please with their present Government, have offered put themselves under the Protection of Swede which was the Reason that the Court of Coper hagen was sending Troops that Way, to keq the Norwegians in Awe.

HOP- FACTOR ; or, The Tragi- comic Event. LAST Thursday Night, at an Assembly on the Surry Side of the Water happened a most dis- seeable Fracas. A military Gentleman belong- to the City Train- bands, danced with Made- iselle Toupet, a Lady of Mirth and Good mour, whose Head- Dress was three Feet per- dicular. Mademoiselle's elegant Manner of ncing was the Loadstone of Attraction; the lemande and Cotillion Step was her Element; ry one she touched she seemed to animate. Even old Dons, with their Majors and full Bottoms, tteavoured to turn an Allemande with Mademoi- e. We dread to relate the Sequel: A Gentle- In in the Hop Trade, who had felt the Power of demoiselle's Charms, was willing to exert him- f, when, O miserable ! dire Confusion ! instead of graceful, gentle Twist, the poor Factor, by some lucky Turn of his Arm, gave Mademoiselle so dent a Blow upon the Caput, that Babel's Tower mediately dropped to Pieces , the Lady, of Con- nence, fainted, and fell to the Floor. The Cap- , whose Eye- Balls shot indignant Fire, imme tely seized poor Pocket, and vented such a Volley Oaths, that even the Generalissimo of the Bands, he been there, must have trembled. The ole Room was instantly in an Uproar. " Part ! make a Ring!" was echoed from every arter. The Macaronies fled to Mademoiselle's ssistance, and each with his various Smelling Bot- exerted himself for poor Toupet's Recovery, le was untying her Tucker, some unlacing her, lers sprinkling her with Water, and bathing her mples, but all in Vain. Poor Pocket and his ends, in the Interim, were endeavouring to ap- se the much enraged Captain, who swore nothing Perdition. Pocket, however, by giving the ptain a Blow in the Bread- Basket, disengaged uself: But this was only adding Fuel to Fire ; the Captain instantly ran for his Sword, which immediately drew, and brandishing it in the Air th all the Gesticulation of a Bedlamite, in crossing Room to meet his Antagonist, he gave a most rant Glass Chandelier so violent a Blow with his bledo, that it flew to a thousand and ten thousand Pieces. The Confusion now was ten- fold ; the acaronies, too much agitated to be of any further vice to Mademoiselle, took to their Heels ; when upet, finding all the pretty Things had left her, overed, and, like the mad Hermione, rushed long the Crowd, and dealt general Destruction to ad- Dresses. We know not what might have apened, if a Borough Justice had not been pre- t, who was obliged to read the Riot Act: Upon ich the Assembly immediately broke up. ness Abroad, they have as yet turned out but mere Pretenders : He was succeeded by one William, a Dutchman, who married before he embarked from Holland ; and although some Au- thors say he did not wait for an Invitation, yet as he had given some Good- will, he took the Stock at a fair Appraisement, and set up on the old Premisses, where he and his Wife got a comfortable Liveli- hood: They dying, Ann, his Wife's Sister, came in, in her own Right, and carried on Business with great Reputa- tion, while she employed honest and experienced Journeymen; but turning these away, her Credit sunk extremely towards the latter End of her Tune, through the Blunders and Mismanagement of one Harley, her Foreman, and some others: She dying without Issue, in that Cafe the Business, which was much extended by William the Dutchman, was left to the present Family, the first of whom was George, and whom we shall call the First, who was succeeded by his Son, George the Second, who with his Father were very good Sort of Men, though both were much blamed for neglecting their Business, by gad- ding to a dirty Farm, called Hanover. His Name- sake and Grandson, The present Possessor, began with a fair Prospect; but being over- ruled and misguided by a favourite Servant, has loft great Part of the Business, and al- though some of his best Friends have remonstrated, and even petitioned him to alter his Course, he turning a deaf Ear to their Advice, being obstinate, has some Time since quitted the old Trade of King- Craft, and turned Button- Maker. Worcester, Oct. 5, 1772. WHEREAS at a Court of Guardians of the Poor of the several Parishes of this City, held this Day, Complaint was made to the Court that some Persons have of late omitted bring- ing Hops which have been bought, sold, or deli- vered within the said City, to the public Scales, to be weighed by the Hop- Weighers appointed for such Purpose ; which Practices being considered as not only illegal, but prejudicial to the Charity, The said Court did order. That the following Clauses in an Act of Parliament passed in the fourth Year of the Reign of his late Majesty King George the Second should be published in the Worcester Jour- nal, and by Hand- Bills, viz. ' And for the better regulating of the said Hop- ' Market, be it also enacted by the Authority afore- ' said, That all Hops hereafter to be bought, sold, ' or delivered within the faid City of Worcester or ' the Liberties, Suburbs, or Jurisdiction thereof, ' or Places adjacent, by the Wholesale, shall from ' Time to Time be first brought into the said Hop- ' Market, and there, and at no other Place, shall ' be publickly and in open Market bought, sold, and ' disposed of, and afterwards weighed at the public ' Scales there to be kept by the public Hop- Weigher, ' and thereupon the usual and customary Tolls, ' Fees, and Perquisites shall be paid to, and received ' by the said Guardians of the Poor of the said City, ' and their Successors, from Time to Time, for the ' Uses and Purposes aforesaid. ' And for the better preventing the buying, fel- ' ling, and weighing of Hops by Wholesale in pri- ' vate Houses or Places, be it further enacted by the ' Authority aforesaid, That if any Person or Per- ' sons shall at any Time or Times from and after ' the said Twenty- fourth Day of June, buy, fell, ' or weigh any Bag, Pocket, or Parcel of Hops, in ' any other Place than in the said Hop- Market, or ' before such Hops shall have been brought to, and ' weighed at the said Hop- Market by the public ' Hop- Weigher, or at the public Scales there to be ' kept, such Person or Persons shall, for every such ' Bargain or Offence, forfeit and pay the Sum of ' Ten Shillings, for the Use and Benefit of the Poor ' of the said several Parishes of the said City, to be ' levied by Distress and Sale of such Offenders Goods, ' by Warrant under the Hand and Seal of the Mayor, ' or any one or more of the Justices of the Peace ' of the said City of Worcester, or of any one or more ' of the Justices of the Peace of the County of Wor- ' cester, in their respective Counties and Jurisdic- ' tions, restoring the Overplus ( if any) after all ' Charges of such Distress and Sale paid, to the Party ' so offending; and if no Distress can be had or ' found, that then such Justice or Justices shall, by ' his or their Warrant, commit such Offender to ' Prison, there to remain for the Space of one ' Month, or until Payment shall be made of such Penalty, and the Charges attending such Com- ' mitment.'

It is universally agreed that no Age has indulged more in the Extravagancies of Fashion and Bagatelle than the present; which appears, not only from the Claims laid to them by Persons who move in the first Sphere, but these of the very subordinate and distant Ranks of Life, it seems to be equally agreed, that few Periods, in modern Times, have afforded such Instances of Relaxation on the Stage, whether we consider it in Respect to Authors, Managers, or Players.— At such a Time then the Edi- tors think a Work of this Nature useful, as well as en- tertaining, particularly at they intend to be faithful II- lustrators of their Title, by alternately exhibiting the the Follies, Vices, and Defects of each. The Player shall be truly told of bis Faults.— The Author of his Puerilities, and the Managers of their Avarice, or Par- tiality ; nor shall even the Coronet elude their Search in the Detection of the Gambler or the Fop : In short, as they mean to be entirely guided by the Pen of Impar- tiality, their general Design will be, " To hold the Miror up to Nature, shew Folly her own Image, and the very Age, and Body of the Time, his Form and Pressure."

JOHN ASTLE, who now works with Mr. Saltkill, Coach maker, at Walham Green, in the Parish of Ful- ham, bad some Months been under a strong Mercurial Course for the Venereal Disease, when the Surgeon, who attended him finding his Case so obstinate as to resist his utmost Efforts, ad- vised a Salivation, and on his refusing to submits to it, gave him up at incurable by any other Means. He then applied to Dr. Burrows, in a Condition truly deplorable ; his Body was covered with putrid Eruptions, be bad a large Ulcer on each Tonsil. which bad almost consumed them. a Tumor of a con- siderable Size, and nearly schirrous, in each Groin, and a Contraction in his Limbs; be laboured under nocturnal Pains that frequently deprived him of Rest for four or five Night successively, which. together with a bectic Fever, constant Head ach, & c. bad reduced him to so low a State that he was scarcely able to walk. This wretched Object was put under a Course of the Vegetable Syrup, by the sole Use of which in a few Days the Ulcers in the Throat became easier, and he swal- lowed with little Pain ; in about twenty Days the Eruptions began to subside, the Tumours to discuss, the Paint to abate considerably, and in the Space of two Months be was radi- cally cured of every Symptom, and followed his Business at constantly as ever, to the Surprise of many of the Neighbours, who were acquainted wish his dreadful Situation ; at is at- tested by the Patient and his Master, Feb. 25. 1771.

To Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, Golden- Square SIR, I Should think myself wanting in Gratitude to you, and Hu- manity to my Fellow- Creatures, if I longer omitted ac- quainting the Public of a most remarkable Cure I have obtained by the Use of your MAREDANT'S DROPS. About forty Yearr ago I got a Surfeit, by drinking a Quantity of Small- Bees when I was excessive hot; soon after which I was taken very ill, and there appeared great Blotches and other Eruptions all over my Head, my Hands, and my Body, much like the Bark of a Tree. I have bad the Advice of the most eminent Physicians in London, and have taken various Medicines, Diet- Drinks, & c. without Relief, till I took your Drops, by which, thank God, I am now perfectly cured. As my Disorder appears to be of longer standing than any mentioned in your Paper, you have my Leave to publish it. I am, Sir, Berwick street, Soho, Tour very humble Servant, August 15, 1772. JOHN HAINES. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medicine, may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, the West Side of Golden square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of Six Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurry, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. N. B.

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 part 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.

SIR, I Think it my Duty ( as it may be the Means of pointing out Relief to such as labour under similar Complaints) to inform you, that if you think proper you may cominu- nicate to the Public that I am perfectly recovered from a relaxed, emaciated State, by taking your Restorative Medi- cine. My Disorders, I am well convinced, arose from youthful Imprudence, and the natural Effects of a hot Country. I consulted some of the most eminent Physicians, and regularly followed their Prescriptions, but all to no Ef- fect. At length happily meeting with a Gentleman who had been your Patient, he informed me of the Benefit he had received from your salutary Medicine. I am Sir, with the greatest Respect, your most humble Servant, Cambridge, July 22. C. BURTON. In the Course of many Years Practice innumerable Instances have indisputably proved the strengthening and cordial Effects of this Medicine in all Weaknesses, Debili- ties, & c. whether natural or acquired by Self- polution, or excessive Venery, and Nervous Complaints in general ; a so those secret Infirmities that attend Persons advancing in Years are by it removed ; and the natural Powers of the whole Vital System are nourished, comforted and prolonged. The Causes of Impotency in one Sex, and Barrenness in the other, have been eradicated by this Medicine. The Great BOerHAAVe says, From an ill- cured Pox, or imprudent Venery, arise Pains in the Head or Limbs, Erup- tions, Gleets, Weakness of the whole Frame, Lowness of Spi- rits, Dimness of Sight, with a Tribe of Nervous Complaints, which generally terminate in a Cousumption. For a full Account read the Doctor's New Treatise, just published, Price is. 6d. the seventh Edition. The ReSTORATIVe is to be had in Bottles at 10s. 6d. with full Directions, of H. Berrow, Printer of this Paper, in Worcester ; and of the Doctor, in George- street, York- buildings, in the Strand, London, who may be consulted personally, or by Letter, Post paid. 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 ( as instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year. In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and uni- versal Fame. These Pills are must worthy a Place in the Ca- binet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the more so, for that they require no Confinement, not Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Climates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation fails. Sold ( in Boxes, at 2s. 6d. each) by H. Berrow, Printer, in Worcester.
