Price Two- pence Halfpenny. T H U R S D A Y , ; November 12, 1772. Numb. 409 Saturday's and Sunday's Posts. Extract of a Letter from Zell, Oct. 20. THIS Afternoon Queen Caroline Matilda arrived here from the Castle at Goerde, escorted by a Squadron of Springel's Regiment of Dragoons, & C- The Citizens with their Colours ranged ; and the People testified their Joy with incessant Acclamations at seeing her. Upon her Arrival at our Castle, her Majesty found there a Company of the Regiment of Prince Ernest of Mecklenburgh, with their Colours flying, and was received by the Princes Charles and George of Mecklenburgh. We have this Moment the Pleasure to see her Majesty walking through the City, which is most magnificently illuminated. " By Order of the King of Great- Britain, our Sovereign, the Royal Etiquette will be observed in all Points towards the Queen his Sister. All the Royal Houshold are already arrived from Hanover." C O U N T R Y N E W S. Salisbury, Nov. 2. A few Days ago an Officer in the 35th Regiment of Foot, now quartered here, who has been in the Army thirteen Years, during which Time he has made several unsuccessful Attempts to get promoted, received a Letter from an unknown Person, inclosing Notes for a considerable Sum, at the same Time informing him, that a Commission in his own Regiment would soon be vacant, and that the Writer hoped he would now be enabled to purchase that Advancement, which had been hitherto denied to his Services and acknowledged Merit. We hear from Whitcomb, near Dorchester, that during the Storm on Sunday last, the Lightning set Fire to a Barn, which was full of Corn astd Clover- Seed; and the Whole, with a fine Stack of Oats, was consumed. Canterbury, Nov. 3. On the 26th of October a Single- Horse Chaise was stopped in St. Dunstan's near this City, by Messrs. Lampert and Brown, Officers in the Excise ; and on searching the Seat were found 40lb. of fine Tea, and several Sets of China Jars and Beakers, a large Trunk behind, containing several Pieces of India Silk Handkerchiefs, some Pieces of fine Cambricks, Muslin, Corded Muslin, and several Pair of French Russles, which, with a Pared of Writings and the Carriage, were all conveyed to his Majesty's Warehouse. Oxford, Nov. Yesterday the Rev. Thomas Griffith, Rector of Bishopstoke, Hants, and Fellow of Pembroke College, was admitted to the Degree of Doctor in Divinity. The same Day the Rev. Phipps Weston, Rector of Rushall, Wilts, was also admitted to the Degree of Doctor in Divinity. On Tuesday last Mr. Drake, of Braze Nose, and the Hon. Mr. Finch, of Christ Church, were elected Fellows of All Souls College. On Tuesday also the Rev. Mr. Sheffield, Fellow of Worcester College, was appointed Keeper of the Ashmolean Museum. This Week Benjamin Brotherton, Esq; Gentleman Commoner of St. Mary Hall; James Fisher, Esq; Gentleman Commoner of Corpus Christi; and John Boyde, Esq; Gentleman Commoner of Christ Church; were severally admitted to the honorary Degree of Master of Arts. Saturday last died, greatly regretted, the Rev. Mr. Loggin, Fellow of New College. L O N D O N , Friday, Nov. 6. It is now reported that no Supervision will be lent to India till after the Parliament has considered the Propriety of the Measure. On Tuesday a Grant paired the Great Seal to the Right Hon. George Viscount Townshend, of the Office of Master General of his Majesty's Ordnance, & c. to hold the same from the Day on which he shall be succeeded in his Government of Ireland, by the Arrival of the Earl of Harcourt in that Kingdom. It is said that if the Duke of Grafton resigns the Office of Privy Seal, Mr. Charles Fox will be complimented with it. We hear that a Great Personage intends to renew the Theatrical Amusements at Court, as has been practised in former Reigns, to prevent a Repetition of the Treatment he received the last Night of his going to Drury- Lane Theatre. This Hint, it is. said, has been given him by the Managers, who, notwithstanding all their Care, cannot take upon themselves to be answerable in future for the unruly Part of the Audience. By an Account delivered in some Time since it appears, that the Court of Chancery has in Trust, for different Persons, a Sum little short of Six Millions. Wednesday came on before the Lord Chancellor, at Lincoln's Inn Hall, a Petition signed by a Number of the Creditors of Mr. Fordyce, late a Bankrupt, complaining of the Allowances or Gifts made by several other Creditors, without the Consent of the Petitioners, to Mr. James, Mr. Neal, and Mr. Down, late Partners with Mr. Fordyce, and praying that the same might be set aside; and likewise praying that the present Assignees might be discharged, or another added to those already appointed. After hearing Council fully on all Sides, his Lordship observed, that as to the first Part of the Prayer, he could not set signee, if they thought proper; but he was of Opinion that they could not do better than keep those Gentlemen of Integrity and Abilities already appointed.— The above- mentioned Petition was signed by near sixty Persons, Creditors to the Amount of Twenty- Seven Thousand Pounds. On Tuesday a Motion was made in the Court of Chancery to quash a Writ of Excommunication capando, which had been issued against a Person for Non- performance of Conjugal Rites. The Ground on which the Motion was made, was, its not being one of the Causes particularly named in the Act of the 5th of Elizabeth ; on which the Lord Chancellor remarked, that many a Quaker would be glad if every Cause not mentioned in that Act could not be prosecuted by the Spiritual Court, as Tythes are not one ; but he was of Opinion, on the Cursitor's receiving the Bishop's Significavit, he did his Duty in making out the Writ, and as he thought the Cursitor unjustly complained of, he should give him the Costs of the Motion, which the Cursitor declined accepting. The Friends of Freedom and Independency met on Wednesday Night at the Standard Tavarn in Leicester- Square, and came to several very patriotic Resolutions; and the following Toasts were drank: The glorious and immortal Memory of King William the Third. May double Faces have double Halters. May the Treachery of the 29th of October more firmly unite the Friends of Liberty. May the Firmness of the Livery of London continue to triumph over the Frauds of the Court. Mr. Alderman Ball, Mr. Alderman Lewes, and several worthy patriotic Gentlemen were ballotted for and unanimously admitted Members. Upon its being lately agitated in Company who at present were the two greatest Men in Europe, it was allowed by a Majority, that the King of Prussia and Mr. Wilkes were the two : the one being most remarkable for his Abilities in subverting Liberty, the other in his Abilities in supporting it. On Tuesday the Lord Mayor elect sent for the City Marshals, and acquainted them that he should expect a strict and regular Attention to the Duties of their Office with respect to the Markets of this City, the Abuses whereof have been very prejudicial of late Years to the Community ; and also ordered them to cloath their Men in the Colour of his Lordship's Livery, according to their original Instructions from the Court of Common Council; and that those Men do diligently patrole the Streets of this City, and apprehend all Vagrants, Beggars, and other disorderly Persons who prey on the humane, benevolent, and industrious Inhabitants, and that each of them should be passed to their respective Parishes. His Lordship likewise gave very particular Instructions to the Meal- Weighers, and declared, if regular Returns were not made to him of the various Prices of Corn, he would provide proper Persons, at his own Cost and Charges, to inspect the same, and punish every Defaulter as far as the Law empowers him. His Lordship also ordered William Dawson, Esq; carefully to inspect the several Vessels employed in the Fishery, and to prevent their lying, up at Gravesend, in their Passage to London, within a limited Time, which is the Practice at present, and which enables the Sellers to feed the Market as they see fit, and, consequently, to enhance the Price at Pleasure; he is likewise to watch carefully the West- Country Barges from Staines to London, in order to prevent Combinations, by stopping in their Way, which hath too frequently been practised ; and his Lordship also further declared, he would be ever ready to hear, and endeavour to redress every Grievance and Complaint under which his Fellow- Citizens suffered, to the utmost Extent of his Power, during his Mayoralty. We hear from Pais, that the French East- India ships, fitted out on Account of private Trade, will not defray the Expences of their Voyage; not even to those to whom the King lent Ships; so that an End is nearly put to the French East- India Trade, unless they can immediately devise some Scheme to revive it. Shoreditch Church, which was granted, as the Service was then beginning. Wednesday Night 16 Persons, supposed to be Footpads and House- breakers, were taken up by the Watch in an empty House near Marybone, two of whom were Soldiers, and four Lads not 14 Years old. A poor Woman, who for upwards of ten Year; has got her Livelihood by carrying Meat from the different Markets, has lately laid Claim to an Estate in Somersetshire, worth 500l. per Annum. The Affair is soon to be heard in Westminster- Hall, and the Woman's Title is so clear, that it is almost certain she will not only be put into Possession of the Estate, but also that the greatest Part, if not the Whole of the Arrears, will be allowed her. October 28, 1772. WHEREAS many Farmers and Inhabitants of the several Parishes of Hallow, St. John in Bedwardine, and St. Clement, in the County of Worcester, have entered into an Association and Agreement for the prosecuting and bringing to Justice all Persons who shall be guilty of Healing Turnips, Potatoes, Apples, Pears, or any other Things, the Produce of their Farms ; and also for the prosecuting of all Persons who shall be guilty of any other Felonies or Trespasses ; Notice is hereby therefore given, That proper Watchmen are appointed to attend the several Estates in the said Parishes, as well by Night at by Day ; and all Persons who shall be detected in any of the Offences aforesaid, will be proceeded again it with the utmost Rigour.

You may assure the Public from Authority, says Correspondent, that the Regulation of the ices of Provisions, & c. will be the first Business tared next Sessions of Parliament. The Public may depend on it, every Thing reive to Supervision will be settled by Parliament me enough for the Supervisors to go out this ason, though some subsequent Act may take ace for the better Regulation of the Company's airs in Bengal, otherwise so early a Day as the Inst. would not be agreed on by the Proprie is to canvass the Commission, but it would lie er till Christmas, the quarterly Meeting. It is said that, at the Meeting of Parliament, Bill will be brought in to prevent the Exportaon of Wool, under severer Penalties than any t enforced. It has been asserted in the Public Papers, that e Civil List is only two Quarters in Arrears. It abaolutely false. The whole Civil Government, or, in the Office Style, the whole Civil ablishment, is, bona fide, unpaid from Christians last to this Hour. If any one asks what is come of the Money so largely and liberally anted by the Public ? the true Answer is, It is uandered in Pensions and Bribes, to procure and ain a Majority in the two Houses of Parliant, to do the King's Business, as it is called. The Hon. Charles Fox is negotiating with the inistry. He is to be a Lord of the Treasury the room of somebody to be pensioned out. is Aim is to be Chancellor of the Exchequer, in se of Lord Guildford's Death. If any Body is pensioned out to make Room soils Youth, it will be the fourth Pension granted thin these few Days. The other three are, Sir George Macartney 1 , o o l . per Ann. Lord chancellor Lifford 1oo0l. per Ann. And Chief ron Parker a Pension for Life. Friday at the Cabinet Council held at St. mes's, Sir Jeffery Amherst was sworn in one of s Majesty's Most Hon. Privy Council, and took Seat at the Board. Mr. Bearcroft, Mr. Newman, and Mr. Cust, peared on Friday, for the first Time, in their bes as King's Council. Last Tuesday the Court of Aldermen unaniously voted, that this Court doth return Thanks the Right Hon. William Nash, Esq; Lord Mayor of this City, for the particular Regard he been pleased to shew the Members that comse this Court; for his upright and unblemished Administration of public Justice, and for his connt Endeavours, on all Occasions, to promote e Welfare and Prosperity of this City during e whole Course of his Mayoralty. A Correspondent observes, the Dissenters, but twelve Years since, to a Man, were ministerial gots ; but now, by the Indiscretion of our ulers, they are all grown reasonable Creatures. A Commission of Bankruptcy was lately taken it against Mr. F- tt e, the noted Horse Racer, who was in Partnership with the Duke of Cumberland. Last Week the Commissioners, Messrs. ardinge Peckham, and Blake, fat to hear Evience, on which so declare him a Bankrupt. Two Counsel, Mess. Cox and Lucas, attended on ehalf of the petitioning Creditor, and endeaured by Arguments and Evidence, to prove m a Trader, which was by buying and selling of Horses, and, taking in Horses to stand at Livery; ut it appeared, that the only Horses he had ever ept in that Manner, were Horses belonging to Duke of Cumberland. The Commissioners animously determined, that a Trader within the Bankrupt Laws was such an one as got his Living by buying and selling, or at least his principal eans of Livelihood ; that this could not be applied to Mr. F- tt - e, who was a Country Gentleman that had a landed Estate of 4000l. a Year; they therefore refused to find him a Bankrupt, the celebrated Mrs. C—— of Soho- Square was, upon the same Principle, rejected by these very commissioners, by endeavouring to prove herself trader by selling of Gloves to the Company at er Assembly. It all the Commissioners would behave in the same Manner, we should not have many Instances of Knaves defrauding their creditors and by a Commission of Bankruptcy oid the Punishment due to their Crimes. rity towaras the Caribbees, WHO call themselves the ancient Possessors of that Place, and have committed many Hostilities and Barbarities upon the English Settlers, who have at length procured the Assistance of four Regiments to drive their troublesome Neighbours out of the Island ; the latter have taken to thé Woods and Morasses, w h e r e they dispute every Inch of Ground with the most desperate Bravery neithergive nor take Quarter, and force the English Soldiers to act like them selves, with the most relentless Inhumanity. It is computed the above Savages amount to about three thousand in Number; but as they have a continual intercourse with the native Ca ribbees on the neighbouring Islands it is feared they will be reinforced, and that it will be attended with no small Difficulty to dislodge them from a mountainous Country, where the Woods are so extensive, and the Service ( where so much Cruelty is exercised) so very disagreeable to the British Soldiers. The Antigua Gazette of Sept. 2, confirms the Account lately published, of the Damage done there by the late Hurricane at St. John's, and contains the following additional Particulars: — " The News from all Parts of the Country are truly deplorable; the House of the Hon. Col. Farley is entirely blown down ; as also the Buildings on the Estate, called Briggins's, over against it. The House of Nathaniel Humphreys, Esq; in Popeshead Division, is entirely destroyed. The House of John Mayer, Esq; of Belfast Division, is levelled with the Ground. The House of, Mr. Alexander Willock, on his Estate, called the Folly, is also blown to the Ground. Take the whole Island in gross, not one House in ten is said to be Handing, but all are materially damaged, and our Canes that were in Plants are torn up by the Roots." Extract of a Letter from Dominica, Sept. 19. " We have had the most melancholy Accounts from our Sister Islands ( Barbadoes only excepted). At Antigua, by the Hurricane, their Towns and Plantations are almost destroyed, and not more than two Schooners escaped undamaged of the great Number of Ships in their Harbour; At St. Christopher's the Damage was rather greater ; and at St. Eustatia still more melancholy. Not the least Detriment was done to this Island." The Apollo, Manning, loading at St. Kitt's, for London, is entirely lost, and all the Crew except one Man perished. Also a Ship loaded with 500 Hogsheads of Sugar, Name unknown, from Nevis to London. Extract of a Letter from New York, Sept. 21. " By Capt. Manby, from Ocracock in North Carolina, in eight Days, we have an Account of the following Vessels being lost at that Place the 1st Instant, in a violent Gale of Wind, viz. Capt. Clark, in a Schooner from Edentown, lost, and all the Crew perished; Capt. Pearse, in a Brig, from the same Place, bound to Jamaica, lost, with the Cargo, but the Crew saved; Capt. Towers, in a Schooner, from Boston, lost, the Crew saved; Capt. Hill, from Virginia, the Vessel lost, People saved; a Sloop of about fifty Tons, loaded with Cedar for Philadelphia, lost ; and Captain Mills, from the same Port, drove ashore, but both their Crews were saved ; Capt. Done, in a Schooner from Connecticut, lost, Crew and Cargo saved; Capt. Carter, from Edentown, lost; Capt. Pinder, from Newbern, lost, Cargo saved ; Capt. Conway, in a Sloop from this Port lost, Cargo saved ; and Capt. Thomas, from this Port also, Vessel entirely lost, the Mate and three of the People drowned, the Captain three Days after was taken up about six Miles from the Land, from Part of the Wreck, by a Vessel bound in ; and the same Day a Lad, named John Burrows, belonging to the same Sloop, was also taken up by another Vessel, inward bound, from some of the Wreck, 12 Leagues to the Northward of Ocracock ; and a Sloop, Name unknown, was drove out to Sea, and never again heard of. Extract of a Letter from Philadelphia, Sept. 23. " Capt Brown, from Cape Fear, informs us, that on the 31st of August, 14 Vessels were drove ashore, and totally lost, with several Seamen." The Betsey, Staffron, from Riga, is on Shore, going into Swansey Bay. The Pitt, Gill, is lost at Dominica, and 18 Sail of small Vessels are on Shore. The Betsey, Snowball, from Newcastle to Pool, was lost the 29th ult. on the Holme Sand off Leostaffe. The Pilot and four Men were drowned. By a Letter from Port Glasgow, dated Oct. 3 1, we learn, that Accounts had just been received there from Sky, that an epidemical Distemper had broke out in the Lewis Islands, which was thought to have been brought there by a Vessel from Dantzick; that the Coasts in Sky were all guarded, to prevent any Communication with the adjacent Islands. The Gentleman who sent these Accounts, desired they might be made public, left there might be Danger from the Herring Busses or other Vessels which had rendezvoused there. The Captain of a Vessel from Sky acknowledges, that there was an uncommon Death in the Lewis Islands, and that he did not chuse to go much ashore. The Letter from Port Glasgow adds, that Care will be taken by the Revenue Officers not to admit any suspected Vessels into their Port until they get further Accounts of this melancholy Affair. Edinburgh Advertiser. The following Account is given of the Seizure of the Papers and Person of the Prince de Conti, which has made a great Noise at Paris. The Prince de Conti having been suspected by the Court to have favoured several seditious Papers lately published against the Ministry, and to have caused them to be privately printed at a Press he had erected in the Verge of the Temple, where he holds his Court at Paris; the Chancellor Maupeau obtained a Letter de Catchet, which he caused to be issued Oct. the 23d. In Consequence of which Arret the Palace of the Prince was environed by Musqueteers and other Guards. They first secured the Manuscripts and printed Papers ; these were instantly deposited in the Hands of M. de Sartine, the Lieutenant of the Police. The lions found Means to escape, and made the best of his Way to I'Isle d'Adam, a Country Seat belonging to the Prince de Conti ( where he then was) and acquainted him with what was transacting at his Palace. The Prince, greatly, astonished at the Intelligence, immediately set off for Paris ; but his Highness found his Person no more sacred than his House, his Papers, of his Secrets. The Minister, Maupeau, secured the Prince also ; and the great and noble Asserter and Protector of the Liberties of his Country has been immured like a common Felon. What will be the Consequence of this atrocious Stretch of Power in the Chancellor Time only can disclose ; but the Populace are so exasperated, that some dreadful E f - fects are to be expected. The other Princes of the Blood were so alarmed at this daring Attack of the Minister, on so respectable a Part of their Body, that they went from their Palaces in Paris to the Country with the utmost Precipitation, in the Opinion of many, in a Manner very unworthy their high Births and Stations. An extraordinary Divorce is like to take Place not far from Grosvenor- Square : Two Females of Fashion, who professed the highest Friendship for each other, and who were almost inseparable ( the one a Widow, the other a Wife) being one Night at an Assembly, the Wife complained to her Friend, the feared her Husband was inconstant to her; the Friend advised her not to fill her Head with such Fancies. The Wife went Home, but her Husband not returning all Night, She arose early, and flew to her Friend to communicate her Surprize ; the Milk- Woman being at the Door, and the Maid engaged in T a l k with her, she walked in without Ceremony, and up Stairs she went, where, to her great Surprize, she found her Husband in Bed with her Friend. In these Times, when the Poor cannot provide themselves with common Necessaries, a Kept Mistress near Oxford- Street frequently gives a Guinea for two Roses. Query, Whether a T a x on such Wretches as keep those Women would not be better than making the poor labouring Mechanic pay Three- pence Halfpenny per Pot for Porter ? Thursday, at Twelve o'Clock, a Fellow stood in the Pillory on the paved Stones opposite Spital- Fields Church, for ravishing a Child of Five Years old. He behaved in a most audacious Manner to the Populace, who in Return pelted him most severely ; at length a Stone striking him on the Head laid his Skull open, and from that Moment he ceased his Impertinence. The Women were very severe with him. Friday Morning a Sailor passing along Rotherhithe Road, met his Wife ( who had eloped some Days before) Arm in Arm with another Man : A Battle ensued, in which the Husband came off Conqueror, but not without the Loss of an Eye. Worcester, Oct, 1, 1772. ON Account of the Dearness of Hay, Corn, Straw, and every other Article relative to the Business of INNKEEPERS, We find it necessary, for the future, not to take a Gentleman's Coach for less than One Shilling and Six- pence per Mile ; nor a Chaise, taking three People, for less than One Shilling per Mile.

( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) F O R E I G N A F F A I R S. Warsaw , October 2 1. H E King has given an Answer to the Declaration delivered by the Ministers from Vienna, Petersbourgh, and Berlin, on the Part of their respective Sovereigns, whereby his Majesty alledges, that as the Limits of Poland have been settled and acknowledged by various Treaties, he cannot but conclude that these three Powers have no Pretensions to any of the Territories of the Republic; he likewise claims the Assistance of the Mediators and Guarantees of the Treaty of Oliva, and protests strongly against every Proceeding contrary to the Treaties and Conventions therein recited. L O N D O N , Tuesday, Nov. 10. Sunday James Townsend, Esq; Lord Mayor Elect for the Year ensuing, was sworn at Guildhall ; when the Chair, and other Ensigns of Mayoralty, were surrendered to him in the accustomed Manner. And Yesterday the new Lord Mayor, accompanied by the late Lord Mayor, several of the Aldermen, and Sheriffs, in their Scarlet Gowns, went in their Coaches to the Water Side, the Sword and Mace being carried before them, and the City Officers attending, and from thence proceeded in the City Barge, attended by the Companies in their respective Barges, adorned with Streamers and Pendants, to Westminster; and having walked round the Hall and solemnly saluted all the Courts, they went to the Exchequer Bar and the new Lord Mayor did there take the Oaths appointed ; and having recorded Warrants of Attorney in the proper Courts, returned by Water to Black Fryars, and from thence in Coaches, with the usual Solemnity, to Guildhall, where a magnificent Entertainment was provided; at which were present divers of the Nobility, and Lords of his Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, and many other Persons of Quality and Distinction. The Lord Mayor's State Coach made a very f i n e Appearance; besides some Alterations done to the Carving, a Pine Apple was introduced on the Top of the Ornament over the Roof, which was lined with the richest blue Velvet, and a Ham mercloth the same, ornamented with Gold Fringe, Honeysuckles, and Arms, the Whole of the Body Yesterday. The Friends of Liberty disdain to grace his treacherous Triumph, and the ministerial Party were ordered to stand aloof for the present, for very obvious Reasons ; on this Account, a Gentleman Yesterday observing his forlorn Situation, called him the Bat- Mayor, with whom neither Bird nor Beast, Patriot nor Courtier, would associate. Not one of the Judges or Serjeants dined Yesterday with the Lord Mayor at Guildhall. At Five o'Clock Yesterday Evening the Populace about Guildhall, headed by some Sailors, began to be very outrageous; insomuch that the Contlables, after a great Scuffle, were obliged to take Shelter in the Hall from their Fury. After having cleared the Yard of their Opponents, they made an Attack upon the Iron Gates at the Entrance of the Hall, and pulled down and set Fire to the temporary Portico, and other Erections for the Day ; and the Lord Mayor having ordered out the St. Laurence Engine to extinguish it, the threw the Engine into the Fire, which they supplied with Timber and other Materials for a considerable Time. In order to intimidate, and prevent the Mob from forcing themselves in, a Number of Gentlemen sallied forth with their Swords drawn, but were as speedily obliged to return, as the Populace, with Planks and Sticks, and other Weapons, withstood them with great Fury and Obstinacy. After some Time Mr. Sheriff Lewes, attended by a great Number of Gentlemen armed, came out of the Hall, and exhorted the People to become appeased, otherwise he intimated that the Riot Act must be read, and the Consequences would be dreadful. The Sheriff, by his conciliating Words, pretty well subsided the Storm ; and the Artillery Company soon after arriving, about Eight o'CIock all became calm. Sixteen Persons were taken up and carried to the two Compters. Several were wounded. Yesterday the Mob seized the Coach of the new Lord Mayor in King- Street, and attempted to draw it back, crying out that Wilkes should go first— but n0 Wilkes appearing they permitted it to proceed. A Memorial of the most spirited Nature is said to be preparing, setting forth the Distresses of industrious People in this Country by the Height of the Taxes, and the almost universal Combinations now entered into for raising Provisions. No less than eighteen Plans for reducing the Prices of Butchers' Meat are said to have been sent to Lord North since the last breaking up of Parliament. It is reported that the Colony Agents intend to make Application to Parliament for Leave to establish Mints for the coining Silver Currency in America. It is said, if Mr. F - t — c e had been found a Bankrupt, as a Dealer and Chapman in Horses, his Partner, ' Squire Morgan, must have been a Party in that Commission ; we should then have seen the ' Squire in another Character, in which he would appear with Credit to his Family, afford Mirth and Laughter to the Public, and great Satisfaction to himself as usual. We hear a Great Personage is now employed in finishing a Piece of exquisite Needle- Work, adorned with curious Emblematics, which is designed for a Present to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Friday the two new Serjeants, Sir James Eyre, and George Hill, Esq; went through the ancient, absurd Ceremony of walking across the Hall opposite the Court of Common Pleas, each with a Woman's Cap over his Wig, and tied under the Chin ; after they had made their different Bows, and gone through another Ceremony of having the Court Sticking- Plaister put on their Wigs, they took their Seats, and the whole concluded with shaking of Hands. Within these few Days, a Number of Silk and Gauze Weavers, & c. who had gone to Scotland to seek for Employment, returned to their old Quarters in Spitalfields, their northern Expedition having by no Means answered their Expectations. This Morning a Fire broke out at the House of Mr. Roberts, a Publican, in Vine- Street, Covent- Garden, from whence it soon spread to Mr. Ray's, Linnen- Draper, the Corner of Round- Court, in Chandos- Street, and burnt so furiously that Mr Ray and his Family were obliged to make their Escape without the least Cloathing, and the House was soon consumed. The Flames then spreading with the utmost Rapidity, destroyed the Houses of Messrs. Cater, Pawn- broker; Coombs, Mercer; Lucas, Mercer; Gubbins, HatWarehouse- keeper Tresilian, Mercer ; and greatly damaged the House of Messrs. Hill and Miland, Mercers, so that the whole Row of Houses in Front, from Castle- Court to Round- Court in Chandos- Street ( Mr. H i l l ' s alone excepted) are all burnt down, besides destroying six or seven Houses backwards. For upwards of Half an Hour no Water could be got, and nothing was heard but the doleful Cry of Persons calling out for Help. Five or six Persons are said to be missing. Yesterday Morning, at Eight o'CIock, the grand Cause relative to the Lead Mine In Yorkshire, wherein the Earl of Pomfret was Plaintiff, and Thomas Smith, Esq; of Gray's Inn, was Defendant, came on again before Lord Mansfield at Westminster- Hall, and lasted till Ten o'CIock in the Evening, when the J u r y , after going out about twenty Minutes, brought in a Verdict for the latter, to the Satisfaction of the Court. It is reported that the Court of Lisbon hath lately made some extraordinary Concessions in Favour of the British Commerce, the Particulars of which have not yet transpired. They write from Cork, that for many Years there has not been known a greater Demand for the Exportation of all Sorts of Irish Provisions, particularly Butter, several thousand Barrels of which are now shipping for Holland and Hamburgh. It is confidently reported at the West End of the Town, that the Spaniards have now three powerful Fleets at Sea, one at the Havanna, and Seamen from the different maritime Provinces of that Kingdom. By Letters from Paris we learn, that the late Arrest of the Prince de Conti, has Occasioned the greatest Disturbance amongst every Rank of People, as he was equally beloved of all. The same Advices add, that the bitterest Invectives are hourly throwing out against the King, Madame du Barrek the Chancellor Maupeau, and the whole Administration. On Thursday Evening as a Justice of the Peace and a Clergyman were coming to Town in a Post Chaise from Yorkshire, being Evidences in the great Cause of the Lead Mine between the Earl of Pomfret and Thomas Smith, Esq; determined Yesterday, they were attacked near Pancras Wash by three Footpads, who demanded their Money, when the Clergyman refused, and made a noble Resistance by knocking one of them down with his Cane, and keeping them at Bay ; some Carriages came by and the Villains went off without their Booty.

T H E Council sat on Monday Night to consult further on the most effectual Means to prevent the Admission of the pestilental Fever into this Kingdom. They have had several Consultations on the same important Business. Last Week a Letter was received by the Earl of Rochford from his Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople, giving an Account that a violent Plague and Scarlet Fever rages there ; in Consequence of which strict Orders have been sent to the several Sea- ports in this Kingdom to take the necessary Precautions in case any Ship should arrive from Turkey. We are told that Lord Bute has now laid entirely aside all his Connections with political Affairs. His Lordship now dedicates all his Hours to the Study of Antiquities and Astronomy. We are well assured that an Application will be made, even in the Royal Speech, for 400,000l. at least, to defray the Arrears of the Civil List ; and some go so far as to add, that a Motion will be made to increase it to a Million annually ; but this latter Part of our Information is not probable, as it would render a Great Personage too independent of his Ministers. W O R C E S T E R , Thursday, November 12 On Monday next will begin the Drawing of the State Lottery at Guildhall, London. At our Market, last Saturday, 929 Pockets of Hops were sold ; and the different Prices were 3I. 10s.— 4I. 10s. — and 5I. 5s. per Hundred. That the Farmers and other Teamholders may be cautious of transgressing the Laws relating to the Number of Horses allowed to be drawn with upon the Turnpike Roads, we think it necessary to acquaint them, that the laudable Fraternity of Horse- Takers are now on their Circuit in these Parts, who on Saturday last seized some very valuable supernumerary Horses. Last Monday Night some Rogues broke into the House of Mr. Robert Waring, in Sidbury and stole thereout three large Loaves of Bread, some Bed Linnen, and other Articles. A few Days ago died in France, on her Way to Naples, whither she was going for the Recovery of her Health, Elizabeth the Wife of Richard Myddelton, Esq; of Chirk Castle, in the County of Denbigh. She was the eldest Daughter of the Right Honourable Sir John Rushout, Baronet, of Northwick, in this County. The Elegance of her Manners, the Happiness of her Temper, and the unbounded Benevolence of her Heart, renderted her the just Delight of all who knew her, and will be cherished in the Remembrance of her afflicted Friends to the latest Period of their Days She lived universally beloved, and has died as universally lamented, having left behind her five Children, a Son and four Daughters. On Wednesday Morning, the 28th of last Month, as Richard Bunn, junior, was ringing the Great Bell in the Parish Church of Holy Cross, Pershore, the Stay broke, and the Bell turning Back- stroke, he was drawn up to the Sally- beam, and received so violent a Blow on the Head, that he was knocked down to the Floor; and, not withstanding the greatest Care was taken of him, he died in the greatest Agonies that Evening.— He had been an expert Ringer near twenty Years, and has left behind him aWife and three Children Extract of a Letter from Chester, dated Nov. 7 " The following most dreadful Accident happened here last Thursday Night:— About 800 Weight of Gunpowder, belonging to Mess. Evan and Thomson, being lodged in a Warehonse under Eaton's Dancing Room, in Water Gate Street, in which Room one Williams from Liverpool was exhibiting a Puppet Show, the Powrished by this dreadful Catastrophe, were Williams, his Wife, and their three Children The Walls of the Warehouse and Showwere of Stone three Feet and a Half thick. appears clearly that the chief Force of the E sion had been exerted upwards, for it was fulfil to throw up all the Floors; & c. & c. of Stories above the Warehouse ; yet the W a l l the Building continue Handing on three Side high as the T o p of the Room in which the der was lodged. Even a Part of the Wood at the opposite End of the Room, on which Powder was placed, still remains Handing House, which rested on one Corner of the B ing; is tumbled down ; but another Old H six Yards distant from the Warehouse, was injured by one Side falling outwards. N Chimney is blown down, though this Spot is rounded with a great Number of old Houses. great many Windows have been broken all ro the Place, even to a considerable Distance ; one Circumstance deserves very particular tion ; nearly all the Glass sell out- wards, with of the Window- Frames. This Fact appare proves that these Windows were not broken the explosive Power of the Gunpowder, but by Pressure of the Air contained in the surrounded. Apartments which rushed into the Vacuum ca by the Explosion. However, where the Fore the Gunpowder was confined by narrow sages, its expulsive or cintrifugal Force took Place for two Boys, walking along the Rows ( or P zas) in Watergate- Street, opposite a Passage ing to this Building, were blown one into Street, and the other against the R a i l s ; and posite another Passage into Common- Hall . L one Side of a slated Roof was entirely blown o Extract of another Letter from Chester, dated November 10. " On Thursday last, a few Minutes be Nine o'CIock in the Evening, the Inhabitants this City were greatly alarmed by a loud unu Noise, attended with a Shaking of the Grou which every one imagined to proceed from Earthquake: But the News soon arrived tha large Number of People, assembled at a Pupp Shew, had been blown up by Gunpowder, pla in a Grocer's Warehouse, which was under Room. Amidst the universal Consternation Confusion, occasioned by this dreadful Calam it happened most fortunately that some Gentlemen had repaired to the melancholy Scene a Minutes after the Accident, who gave particular Directions that every Person who shewed the Signs of Life, should be immediately carried the Infirmary, where the Physicians and Surge would be ready to administer every possible Me of Relief. The Number admitted that N were thirty- three, and twenty since, in all first three. " A clean Bed was provided, for every Pati before the unfortunate Sufferer could be stripp which in general was by cutting off the Cloa to prevent the Agony of pulling those Li which were broken, burnt, or bruised. In tremendous Scene of Horror and Confusion, no possible Relief might be omitted, which the Humanity and Skill could suggest, the Facu assigned different Offices to different Person some employed entirely in bleeding all who required such an Evacuation ; others washed of all the Burns and Bruises with Goulard's Sat nine Water, which seemed universally to have excellent Effect; the rest were engaged in settled fractured Bones, reducing Dislocations, & c. In these and other Offices the Faculty were assiduously engaged from Nine o'CIock, when Accident happened, till Four in the Morning Not one that was admitted has escaped with Marks of violent Contusions, or large and d Burns on the Face, Hands, & c. and general both. The Women are remarkably worse bu than the Men, especially on their Arms a Thighs. — This Circumstance may be account for by the particular Mode of their Dress. another Peculiarity it may be more difficulty guess the Cause ; a great Number of broken Bone as Arms, Thighs, Legs, & c. have happen among the Men, yet only one Limb of a Wom, has been fractured, which most unfortunately the Arm of a poor Girl who had lost the other Arm by a former Disease. " It is very astonishing, that among so large Number as 53, who have been admitted into t Hospital, with such a Variety of dreadful Injury all yet remain alive except one, who expired about Half an Hour after his Admission, bef any Means of Relief could possibly be administered. However, it must be apprehended the many Patients will s t i l l die ; for out of the Nu ber in the Horse, their Burns, Contusions, & have excited such a Fever in all, that only o Patient had Yesterday ( three Days after the Accident) an Appetite for Animal Food. T chief Danger now to be dreaded from so great Number of large Ulcers, compound Fracture & c. in the same Apartments, is, left a putrid F ever should be excited. To guard against th dreadful Calamity with all possible Care, 4 Windows in each Ward are constantly kept open the Day, and not close shut at N i g h t ; each Patient is daily supplied with clean Sheets, and Shift or Shirt; the Wards are daily washed with hot Vinegar, and every other necessary Precaution used.

To the MEMBERS of both Houses of Parliament. AS the Prospect we have before us is dreadful, an Old- fashion'd Farmer needs the less Excuse his Boldness in admonishing his Betters upon the earness of Provisions, which this Winter are likely be at most extravagant Rates; and what is worse, e have not the least Hopes of Amendment, especially whilst our gracious King, and you his wife parliament, are so deeply engaged in giving Engagement to Enclosing and Pasturage, to engross g of Farms and Provisions, to Forestalling and egrating, and to every other Thing that tends to life the Rents; of our Lands above their due Value. Alas ! Gentlemen, although you are above taking Advice from such as myself, yet you may all rest sured, that, unless you alter your Plan of Proceedings, you will pull an old House upon your eads: For, by adding your small Farms together, d encouraging and forcing your Tenants to conrt their Arable Land into Pasture, ye have so inned the Country Villages of Inhabitants, and so er- stocked our Manufacturing Towns with Poor, at Trade is now in a most lamentable Condition, so much that in some capital Branches of Trade ere is not at this Time Employment for above two- thirds, and in some Places not One- half of e Hands: And, indeed, how can it be otherwise ? r when the People which used to be the Purchasers our Goods are, by your avaricious Schemes, reed to become Manufacturers, who can wonder hear Complainings in our Streets ? But what is orst of all, by your avaricious Plan for raising eat Estates by inclosing, you have so raised the ice of Provisions, that the Poor and middling rt of People can now scarce keep Body and Soul together. Therefore, as you know how to remedy lose great Evils, I humbly beg that you will immediately do it, and not humbug the Country as did' last Sessions ; for, as the Army, who have therto protected you in your pernicious Ways, are w in Danger of starving, hence, although there may be but little Apprehension from a Riot of deneeless People, yet Men well armed may strike a error even in those whom the Cries of the Disessed cannot melt into the least Pity. Alas! it one of you could plead Ignorance, ye ight then have some Excuse for the Wickedness u have been guilty of, by inclosing our Fields, d starving, hanging and banishing your Fellowountrymen ; but as you all know that if ( instead obliging your Tenants to lay down their Land to Pasture) you was to give Command for every e to plow one Half o f his Farm, Plenty must sue; nevertheless, i f , for the Sake of raising your ents, you will obstinately endanger the Peace of e Kingdom, ye are of all Men most culpable, The Riots which happen on Account of the high rice of Provisions, are they not of your raising ? and so are the Thieves, who, through Want, are reed to steal, of your making. Hence, although our Laws hang and transport poor Thieves, it is u yourselves that are doubly guilty, by first forceig poor Men to steal, and then hanging them because the Cravings of an empty Stomach forced them to dishonest Actions : But Woe be to those who rob and s t a r v e the Poor under the Sanction of their own Laws, and then hang or banish them because they cannot live without robbing or thieving: Woe be to the Wicked ! it shall be ill with m, for the Reward of his Hands shall be given im. And although wicked Men be never so great nd powerful, nothing can screen them from the nger of an avenging God, who hath promised to venge the Cause of the Poor and Helpless, and that e will afflict the Souls of all those who afflict them, ut that ye may avoid the Punishment by amending our Ways, is the hearty Wish of The Old Fashion'd Farmer. Further Observations by The Old Fashion'd Farmer. PERHAPS in no Age was there ever such a Number of rich and learned Farmers at in the Present ; yet, quere whether this is not productive f more Mischief than Good ; for if Half the Land in the Kingdom is occupied by Gentlemen and pulent Tradesmen, it must then be clear to every dicious Person, that there must be a great Deficiency in its Produce to that which is occupied by industrious and experienced Fanners, by Reason Theory can no more make a good Farmer, than it in a good Mechanic. Hence let no Man wonder the Dearness of Provisions, whilst one Half of Lands are occupied by whimsical Wiseacres, the other by idle Graziers; for to insure Plenty, agriculture must be carried on by Men of Judgement and Experience, it not being in the Power of Gentleman or Tradesman, to understand how to manage all Lands to Advantage, unless they had been long enured to the Practice of Husbandry. Leaping from behind a Counter, with Jethro Tull in his Hands, may enable a Tradesman to talk in Praise of some of that wife Author's strange Whims ; so may the reading of Mr. Miller's voluminous Dictionary, help a Gentleman, of good Estate to Directions tor trying how to raise ninety- six Strike of Wheat from an Acre by the Drill Plow; yet, wherever I have observed the Culture of Booklearned Fanners, it has always been sure to turn out a less Product than their Neighbours, which to me is a Proof, that the Multitudes of Gentlemen and Tradesmen that are now commenced Farmers, is no small Hurt so the Public, not only in making Provisions scarce, but Land also dear. About Birmingham and Coventry, which are Towns I am acquainted with, I have ocular Demonstration of the Truths of my Assertions; insomuch, that I can produce the Names of many who give double the Rent for Land to try their Whims upon, than any Farmer can afford to d o ; nay, so eager are Gentle men and Tradesmen to commence Farmers now a- days, that if a Law is not made to hinder these Pretenders to Husbandry from engrossing our best Land, we shall soon have but little left tor sensible and judicious Farmers to work upon; an Evil which ought to be opposed by Others, as well as The Old Fashion'd Farmer. T o the ADVENTURERS in the L O T T E R Y. WH E R E A S We have for these two Lotteries past, acquainted the Public of our being possessed of a Calculation, by which Means we could ascertain which Half the Numbers in the Lottery, running promiscuously through the Whole, should have a Majority of Prizes; out of which we did select ( with an infinite deal of Trouble and Expence) all such Tickets as we sold, and were remarkably fortunate therein, particularly in the Year 1770, previous to the Drawing, a Book containing Twentyfive Thousand Numbers ( Half of the Lottery) seal'd with the City Seal, that of the Lord Mayor, and Several other respectable Persons, was lodged at the Mansion. House; and after the Finishing of the Drawing, opened in their Presence, when it appeared, that out of 72 Capital Prizes ( the whole Number of Capital Prizes in that Lottery) 52 were in the Calculation. Notwithstanding which, it has been maliciously insinuated, that our Numbers in the last Lottery did not prove so fortunate as the Public were led to expect. It is not to be doubted, that by our selling a great many Tickets, we in Course must sell many Prizes ? This can be no Merit! But that we were particularly fortunate last Year, as well as the Year before, we appeal to the many that bought Prizes at, our Offices ? — However, to convince the Public ( as we have promised in do) that a Calculation is not merely ideal, or intended as a Puss; and of the Advantage thereby I— We do engage ourselves to pay Half a Crown for every whole Ticket in the present Lottery, drawn a Blank, that has been purchased of us before the 2d Day of November: And that the Advantage may not be thought too trifling ( as it is well known there are more Tickets sold after that Time than before) the Half Crown taken off the whole Tickets, will be added to the shared Tickets ; that is, for every Ticket sold in Shares by us in the present Lottery, to be paid at the Rate of Five Shillings ; Half a Crown for every Half Share, and so in Proportion for every lesser Share; notwithstanding they are sold at cheap as at any other Office. The Necessity of discontinuing the Benefit on the whole Tickets, and not explaining it sooner, is, that such great Advantage would be the Means of our selling all the Tickets in the Lottery, and consequently deprive us of selling such selected Numbers only, in which we depend upon having a Majority of Prizes, or must be considerably out of Pocket. We humbly submit the above to the candid Public, and flatter ourselves, that the Advantage, which the Calculation enables us to give, will convince them of the Superiority of out- selected Numbers ; which are selling in Tickets and Shares, from a Half to a Sixty- fourth Part, at our Offices, facing the Admiralty, Whitehall-, at No. 1 0 1 , and No. 104, in the Bank New Buildings, Cornhill; where all Bussiness relative to the Lottery is transacted with Care.

To these Quali ties we attribute its having proved so eminently serviceable in Gouty, Rheumatic, and Scorbutic Habits ; and from the same Principle, has never failed to relieve in Languid, Nervous, and Hypochondriac Cases ; And also, that it hat been found so particularly beneficial in Female Disorders.

IF there be any yet afflicted with this Disorder 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 it the Season for a perfect Cure. The Certainty of Effects, even in the most confirmed Cases, are sufficiently known, from those of Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Game, Sir Roge 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 the Medicine may be seen; though it were ill to revive the Memory of a past Disorder, by mentioning their names: This: may be said with Truth and Safety, None need fear a Cur from it because they have taken other Things in vain.
