Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, November 26, 1772. Numb. 409 Saturday's and Sunday's Posts. COUNTRY NEWS. Bath, November l8. TUESDAY died at Southampton, Mrs. Silena Fifield, a Maiden Lady, who has left by Will 1100l. to the Corporation in Trull for keeping her Tomb in Repair, and the Overplus of the Annual Interest to be laid Out in the cloathing poor Persons who are not Supported by their respective Parishes ; also the Interest of 200l. to provide Firing for the poor Pensioners of the Hospital there. LONDON, Friday, Nov. 20. The following Speeches are said to have been made in the Court of Aldermen on Tuesday last, when Mr. Serjeant Glynn was chosen Recorder of this City: Mr. Alderman Harley. ' My Lord Mayer, ' As soon as I heard of the Vacancy, I thought it my Duty to enquire of my Friend, who knows all the Characters of the Gentlemen of the Law, who was the proper Person to fill this important Office. He told me that he wished to recommend Mr. Bearcroft, a very eminent Counsel, extremely well known at the Old Bailey, and therefore I desire to propose him.' Mr. Harley was seconded by Sir Robert Lad- broke. Mr. Alderman Wilkes. ' My Lord Mayor, ' I do not intend to build the Reputation of Mr. Serjeant Glynn, whom I shall have the Ho- nour of recommending to this Court, on the Ruins of that of any other Gentleman. His Fame shall rest on its own fair and solid Basis. I own indeed Mr. Glynn is not quite so well known at the Old Bailey, but he is perfectly known in the two Houses of Parliament, and the Courts of Westminster Hall. On the Circuit he has often sat as Judge. On every such Occasion the cri- minal Law of this Kingdom, as well as the most entire Candor and Impartiality have been highly extolled. He does not come recommended to me by any partial Friend, but by the public Voice. He has distinguished himself in various great and important Questions of legal and constitutional Liberty, and with the highest Reputation and Success has carried through the most arduous Causes for the People. He is known to be a sound Lawyer and excellent Advocate, able to de- fend our valuable Rights and Franchises, and not only willing to do it, but has proved he had our Interests at Heart. When that excellent Magis- trate, Mr. Crosby, for the Protection he gave his Fellow- Citizens, was prosecuted in an illegal and unconstitutional Manner by a corrupt House of Commons, Mr. Serjeant Glynn was at a great Distance from the Capital on the Western Circuit. He gave up immediately all the Emoluments of his Profession, quitted the Business in which he was engaged, and at a great Expence came Poll to London, to defend in Parliament our Chief Magistrate, and to support the Liberties and Fran- chiles of our Corporation. I therefore beg Leave to recommend him to succeed to the important Office of our Recorder. His known Character is the belt Security we can have for his regular and faithful Discharge of its various Duties.' ' Mr. Wilkes was seconded by Mr. Crosby ' It has been remarked that for many Years no Lord Mayor has passed through his Office with- out receiving the Thanks of the Common Coun- cil, except Mr. Nash, and his being refused was chiefly occasioned by his Refusal to call Com- mon Halls. The Cup presented by the City to Brass Crosby, Esq; will contain seven Quarts, and weighs near 270 Ounces. It is said that a Provision for a certain unfor- tunate great Lady, has been an Object which has lately engaged the Attention of the Cabinet A patriotic Gentleman, it is said, intends to agitate, carly this Session, the Necessity of an equal Land- Tax throughout the Kingdom ; a Regulation our present most able and worthy Mi- nisters set their Face strongly against. It is believed that the benevolent Representa- tives of this Country, if they cannot effect a Rc- duction of the present high Price of Provisions, will vote for advancing the Price of Labour in every Branch of Commerce and Occupation. Some Regulation is much wanted in the Prac- tice of Badgers or Jobbers in Provisions, many of whom buy and sell in the fame Market, and are guilty of various Tricks, by which Provisions in general are advanced. Query, By what Statute is a Man punishable for buying to fell again in the fame or adjoining Parish. They write from Aberdeen, that all Kinds of rain and Provisions are in great Plenty there except Beef, which is sold at Three- pence per Pound, owing to the great Numbers of Cattle bought up to be sent into England. By a late Calculation it is proved that no less than 9500 Firkins of Irish Butter are consumed in London in the Course of a Week The Consumption of Beef and Mutton, on a moderate Computation, for the Winter six Months at great Tables, Taverns, & c. through London & c. for Soups only, is said to amount to twenty housand Sheep at nine Stone each, and two thou- and Oxen at ninety stone each which would bers we should think would refrain, at a Time so scarce as the present, from a Dish so extravagant. Letters from Exeter bring Advice, that on Ac- count of the high Price of Provisions, the poor People there assembled in a large Body, went into the Country, and took a Quantity of Corn, But- ter, and Cheese ( as much as each Man could carry) from the opulent Farmers, and that three of them have been discovered and taken, and committed to Prison, and that strict Search is making after the rest. At a Meeting of the Tradesmen of Salisbury, on Monday last, to consider upon the Expediency of putting a Stop to Hawkers, Pedlars, and such Persons who travel from Town to Town, to the Injury of the resident Tradesmen, and greatly deceive the Public, by felling under the various false Pretences of having the Effects of Bank- rupts, & c. an Address to the Mayor and Corpo- ration was agreed upon, defiling they would give Instructions to the Members for the City for car- rying into Execution a Scheme of such universal Benefit to Trade in general. - It is hoped the Ex- ample of Salisbury will be followed by the Trades- men of every principal Town in the Kingdom. The contagious Distemper lately broke out at Dunkirk proves to be a Species of the black Vo- mit, which made such Havock at that Place in the Year 1736. By a Gentleman just arrived from France we learn, that Lady L now resides at a Place called Ardres near Calais. Three Sail of the Line and four Frigates are to join Admiral Rodney on the Jamaica Station. On Friday, about Two in the Afternoon, a Fire broke out at the House of the Hon. J. Smith Barry, at Pellmont, in Cheshire, which burnt for some Time with great Fury, but was at last happily got under. It is computed the Damage done by the above will amount to upwards of 1000l. Wednesday last William Middleton, Esq; of Bruton, was found hanging by his Pocket Hand- kerchief tied to the Bed's Head, at his Uncle's House in Frome, where he was on a Visit. — This rash melancholy Act is attributed to many capi- tal Lodes he has lately had, particularly on the Failure of Fordyce the Banker. On Monday one Bromley was committed to Newgate by the Sitting Alderman, charged on Oath with privately stealing from the Person of James Elletson Bowen, a Pocket- Book, with two Bills of Exchange Value 450l. and a Promissory Note Value 40l. Wednesday a Fellow was committed to the Poultry Compter by the Lord Mayor, for grossly assaulting his Lordship's Porter while the Lady- Mayoress was going into the Mansion- House, and striking him several violent Blows with a large Crab Stick. A Black was detected in picking a Gentleman's Pocket in Holborn, during the Time of the Con- victs passing ; he was taken to a Horse- pond, where he was severely ducked, and very narrowly escaped with his Life. Wednesday Morning were executed at Tyburn, pursuant to their Sentence, attended only by Mr. Smith, Under Sheriff to Mr. Lewes, and the City Marshal, viz. Benjamin Murphy, Thomas Mur- phy, Charles Earl, William Wiggins, John Sa- vage, and Henry Duffield. Devet had a Reprieve on Tuesday Night, and Kennedy was respited while at Prayers in the Chapel. They all behaved with the greatest Decency becoming their un- happy Situation. One of the Murphys was only fourteen Years of Age ; and Devet, who was re- spited, but thirteen Years and a Half. Mr. Evan Williams, who died possessed of Freehold Houses and Lands to the Amount of about 400l. a Year, which was sold last Week by Auction, acquired the same by keeping a Cob- ler's Stall, or rather Cellar, and selling old Shoes, in Holiwell- Street, Shoreditch, where he died. INTELLIGENCE EXTRAORDINARY. When the Spanish Negotiation seemed to be in a bad Train, the King sent for Lord Chatham, as the only Man who was capable of managing the Machine of Government in such a perilous Conjuncture. After some Conversation had pas- sed, the Earl was asked how the Supplies could be raised in Case of a War. " As to the Supplies during the whole Course of the War I can say nothing at present; that must be Matter of future Consideration ; but with Respect to the first Year's Supplies, I have a Scheme which will answer, without any additional Tax, a Scheme which will make all your Subjects voluntarily open their Purses, and bring many Millions into the Trea- sury." " And pray what is this Golden Scheme? Have you found the Philosopher's Stone?" " Your Majesty will find it will procure you the Affections of your People, the only true Philoso- pher's Stone for a Prince." " Well, my Lord, keep me no longer in Suspence; unfold your mighty Project." " Your Majesty has been Wit- ness to the vast Crouds that attend the Reviews on Wimbledon Common. Suppose you erect Half a Dozen Gibbets on that same Common, and on fix successive Days hang one of your capi- tal Ministers, obliging every Spectator to pay a Guinea or half a Guinea ; do you not think the whole Kingdom would chearfully assemble to assist at the Ceremony, in order to fill your Coffers? The Money gathered on the very first Day of Ex hibition would more than restore our Navy to the WHEREAS an Act, intitled " An " Act to explain, amend, and reduce into " one Act of Parliament the general Laws now " in Being for regulating the Turnpike Roads of " this Kingdom, and for other Purposes therein " mentioned," directs, amongst other Things, That every Constable, Headborough, or Tythingman, refusing or neglecting to put the said Act into Exe- cution, or to account for or deliver any Forfeiture or Penalty according to the Directions of the said Act; and that every Surveyor of any Turnpike Road, and every Toll- Gatherer, and all Persons employed, or to be employed by Commissioners or Trustees appointed or to be appointed for the Re- pairing Roads, as do or shall receive Salaries or Rewards, who shall wilfully neglect, for the Space of one Week, after the Offence committed, to seize any supernumerary Horse or Horses drawing within their View or Knowledge, in any Waggon, Wain, of Cart, contrary to the true Intent and Meaning of the said Act or shall wilfully neglect, for the same Time, to lay Information upon Oath, before one or more of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County, Hiding, Division, or Place wherein such Offence was committed, or before the Com missioners or Trustees at their respective Meetings, as by the said Ad is directed, shall, upon due In- formation made upon Oath before one or more of his Majesty's Justices of the said County, Hiding, Division, or Place, forfeit for every such Neglect the Sum of Ten Pounds. Therefore, at a Meeting of the Trustees acting for the Turnpike Roads in the Bengworth and Bourton on the Hill Districts, held by Adjournment at the Unicorn in Bengworth, in the County of Worcester, on the sixteenth Day of November, 1772, it was then ordered and directed, That the above- mentioned Clause be printed and affixed at every Turnpike Gate upon the said Bengworth and Bourton Districts, and the said Clause inserted twice in the Worcester Journal, that no Person may plead Ignorance of the said Clause.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Hague, November 13. THEY write from Dantzick, that a great Riot happened there when the King of Prussia's Excise- Officers attempted to publish the new Regulations estab- lished by their Master. Some of these officers were killed, and several others very ill ed by the Populace; but it is to be feared the awn will suffer for this rash Behaviour. The last Letters from Warsaw advise, that e Baron de Stackelberg, the new Minister there om the Court of Russia, received a Courier from ount Romanzow, with very important Dis- atches; and it was since reported, that the new egociations of Peace are so forward, that an Ac- mmodation between the Russians and Turks is oked upon to be as good as concluded. COUNTRY NEWS. Birmingham, Nov. 23. Yesterday Morning, bout Six o'Clock, a dreadful Fire broke out in e back Part of the House of Mr. Tho. Crown, Victualler, at the Top of Carr's Lane, in this Town, which destroyed great Part of the Inside of the House. The Damage sustained is very reat, and would have been more so, had it not een for the great Actvity and Vigilance of the habitants in conveying Water and assisting the ngines. Last Monday Morning the House of Mr. John walker, in Friday- Street, in this Town, was roke into, and robbed of the following Articles, iz. Nine Womens' Gowns, fourteen white Aprons and four coloured ones, some Caps, leeves and Shifts, five Mens and three Boys shirts, a Table- Cloth and Sheet, and a Pair of silver Buckles, & C. Gloucester, Nov. 23. On Monday last the Ma- gistrates of this City having found Samuel Bing- am guilty of letting off Fireworks in the Streets of this City, fined him in the Penalty of 20s. greeably to an Act of Parliament made in the Reign of King William, by which it is enacted hat a Penalty of 5l. shall be levied on any Per- on making or selling any Sort of Fireworks, and os. for any Person that shall fire the same. And The Magistrates are resolved to punish all Persons who shall offend against this Statute. A few Days ago a Fire broke out in the Barn of William Betty, of Down Hatherly, in this county, which entirely consumed 120 Bushels of wheat, 130 Bushels of Barley, 120 Bushels of Beans, about two Tons of Hay, a Waggon, and several Utensils of Husbandry, together with the Barn, a Stable, and a Cow- house. The Acci- dent is supposed to have happened by some per- on coming to steal the Corn in the Night. Cambridge, Nov. 20. Last Week the following ancommon Affair happened at Hauxton in this county, which was very nigh being attended with he most fatal Consequences: A Farmer of that Place, having for some Time courted a Woman o whom he was shortly to be married, went on Thursday Afternoon to drink Tea with her; they vere soon after both taken ill, which increasing o a violent Degree, some of the Neighbours be- ng alarmed, sent to a Clergyman who lives in he same Parish to beg his Advice and Assistance. On his Arrival, he suspecting by the dreadful Symptoms which appeared that they had been poisoned, recommended Oil and warm Water to be directly administered, which was happily at- ended with Success, and they were by this Means providentially saved from instant Destruction. - On Enquiry, it appears, that the Woman's Daughter, a Girl about 18 Years of Age, taking t into her Head, that if the intended Union suc- eeded, she should be deprived of the House which her Mother lived in, took the diabolical Resolu- ion of dispatching them both together; to effect which, she procured a Piece of Arsenic, as big as an Egg, which she obtained at the House of the Shepherd, through the Ignorance of his Maid in s Absence; on her Return Home, she pounded t, put Half into her Mother's Tea- Pot, and the other in a Box which was found upon her. LONDON, Monday, November 23. Friday a Privy Council was held at St. James's, when Sir Thomas Parker, late Chief Baron of the Court of Exchequer, was sworn in one of his Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, and took his Seat at the Board. The Apartments that were fitted up last Sum- mer at Hampton- Court, we are assured, are in- tended for the Queen of Denmark, who is expected here early in the Spring. We are credibly informed that a Bill will be brought into Parliament next Sessions, to compel Assignees to make final Dividends in a limitted Time of the Effects of Bankrupts. The Treasury, we hear, have lately had the State of our Coinage under Consideration, and found, upon the closest Examination, that our Gold is not only reduced much below its Weight, but that our Silver is materially adulterated; a parliamentary Remedy is therefore expected to so national an Evil, and will, it is thought, be ap- plied after the Settling of the East- India Business. It is said that several Officers on Half Pay have accepted of Commissions in the East- lndia Com- pany's Service, and are preparing to go in the first Ships that sail for India. At Thursday's Common Council Mr. Alder- man Wilkes reported from the Committee to con- sider the most effectual Means of lowering, or at east preventing an Increase in the Price of Corn and other Provisions, that they had drawn up a Petition to Parliament, recommending the Stop- page of the Distillation of Corn, and the permit- ting the Importation of all Sorts of Grain, Duty free. A Motion was then made to add the Words, " the Prohibiting the making of Starch," which passed in the Negative, and the Petition, as re- ported from the Committee, was ordered to be pesented to the House of Commons by Mr. She- riff Lewes and the City's Remembrancer, Mr. of Parliament to try if a Prohibition of such Ex- portation for a Year would make any Difference. The Chapter Coffee- House Association, we hear, is to be revived upon an improved Plan, for the Benefit of the Poor, by buying Corn, get- ing it made into Flour, and employing Bakers in different Parts of the Town, to make it into Bread to be sold at a reasonable Price. Indian Wheat ground down, and mixed with Flour, makes a well- tasted and wholesome Bread. If Indian Wheat was imported, and this Method was pursued, it might be a Means of reducing the Price of Bread. We hear, that there was lately a Meeting of the Heads of Houses at Oxford, in the Delegate's Room relative to the Subscription to the Thirty- nine Articles at Matriculation ; when, after a very warm Debate, they were abolished, by a Majority of 9 to 5. A Correspondent informs us that the Lord Mayor is determined to remove the Prisoners from Newgate, as soon as Proof is made that only Half a Dozen have died of the Gaol Distemper. Accounts from Edinburgh mention, that Mr. Bankes, Dr. Solander, & c. had been greatly dis- appointed in their late Voyage to Iceland and the Western Isles, finding little Matter that could fur- nish either Amusement or Instruction to the Lovers of Natural History, and still less that could turn out of any Utility to the Public. By the last Accounts from Lisbon we are as- sured, the Council of Slate were greatly divided with Respect to the Advantages which were pro- posed to be allowed the English, in order to con- ciliate the Friendship of that Nation, and that Don Sebastian y Souza, one of the most distin- guished Members of the Council, had been dis- graced by. the Court for the bold Speeches he made with Respect to the Obligations Portugal owed to Great Britain. The Portuguese are almost totally negligent of Agriculture and Manufactures, generally be- taking themselves to Trade or the Sea, as offer- ing greater Profits ; their Passion for Trade is so universal that all the Ordinances made by the Government for the Increase of Agriculture have remained without Effect, and a great Part of the Country lies uncultivated. The People of Paris are in thé greatest Conster- nation at the Confinement of the Prince of Conti, and the Court are as much astonished at their bold Declarations in Behalf of his Highness. In short, every dreadful Consequence is to be expected from this Imprisonment. What with the Discon- tent of the Poor for Want of Food, and the Con- tempt of the Nobles to the Court, nothing is ex- pected in France but a Civil War. The Haughti- ness of Madam Barre, and the Insolence of the King, will at last involve them in every melan- choly Distress that Luxury, Vice, and Rage, can raise against them. The Moors have already begun the Attack of Ceuta; they opened the Cannonade at Dawn of Day, and the Fire continued very brisk till Noon, when it suddenly ceased. The Occasion is not known ; and when the Post left Spain, they had not renewed the Attack. Advice from Lemberg in Poland is just re- ceived, that a Plot had been discovered there, for massacering every Austrian Officer, each in his Quarters ( as the Officers were quartered in the Houses of the Burghers.) Had it not been so soon discovered, the whole Austrian Army in that Province would have been destroyed in one Night Count Bergen, the Austrian Governor there, im- mediately took Measures of Precaution. Several of the Polish Nobility were arrested, and several of them made their Escape. An old Proprietor says, if the Corfican General will accept the desperate Commission of Com- mander and Supervisor in India, it may be pro- ductive of some salutary Effects. A Correspondent assures us, from Knowledge, that twenty- five Years ago the Protestants had not a single Place for public Worship throughout the Kingdom of France ; nay, they were not suffered to assemble even on the Mountains to hear Divine Service; but that now the Protestants are per- mitted to have Churches, and to enjoy, without any Molestation, the Free Exercise of their Reli- gion. He adds, that although, as a Man and a Protestant, he must rejoice at the Prospect of re- ligious Persecution being abolished, yet, as an Englishman, he cannot avoid feeling some Con- cern at the Disadvantage which the Nation may suffer on this Account. We ought therefore to be careful to keep our own People at Home. Advices are received from Holland, that the Spanish Settlement of Acapulco in the South Seas, is entirely destroyed, and that above 500 Souls perished. — Whether by Earthquake or otherwise, is not mentioned. Extract of a letter from Norwich, Now . 10. " On the 5th of this Month, being a public Holiday, as some People were letting off some Fire- works in and about the Market- Place, a Serpent accidentally fell into a Cellar of one of the Out houses belonging to an Oilman, which unluckily got among some Shavings that lay near a Barrel of Oil, and presently catching Fire, set the whole Cellar in Flames, which communicating to the House, soon burned that down to the Ground, with eight others. The Lofs is thought to be upwards of 1oool. One Family is totally ruined, and a Wall falling down killed one Per- son, and sadly bruised five or six others." At the last Houghton Meeting at Newmarket, a Bet of 200 Guineas was laid by a Nobleman, that a Cow eat 15 Stone of Turnips in is Hours, which she performed with great Ease. Saturday Morning, about a Quarter before Nine o'clock, a Fire broke out at the Manufac- tory of Mess Salt and Baker, Paper- Stainers, op- posite the Dog Tavern, on Garlick- Hill, which entirely consumed the same, and greatly damaged six or seven other Houses, before it was extin- guished. It is said to have been occasioned by a Boy lighting a Charcoal Fire, the Sparks of which set Fire to the Paper. Saturday Afternoon two Men, one on a Grey and the other on a Black Horse. rode by the Side might Search them, after which one of Men got into the Coach and rifled it; they took from one of the Passengers Ten Guineas and his, Wateh and from the others what Money they had about them. In the mean Time the Chester and another Stage- Coach drove past, and escaped without be- ing robbed.

BEAUME DE VIE. By the KING'S Patent. Against AUTUMNAL COMPLAINTS, which for the most Part arise from obstructed Perspiration. THERE is not, in the whole Materia Medica, so great a Preservative as that celebrated Medicine the BEAUME DE VIE.; which, by its cordial, attenuating, and detergent Powers, fortifies the Stomach and Bowels, puri- sies the Blood and Juices, and gives as it were, to the whole System, its natural Equilibrium. - 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, Ner- vous, and Hypochondriac Cases: And also, that it has been found To particularly beneficial in Female Disorders.

To the PUBLIC. Those who have trod in this Walk before us, have been little more than mere Panegyrists. Having undertake to give an Account of a noble Family, they imagined was necessary to enoble all the Descendants, by attribu- ting Virtues to them which they never exercised, and burying those Vices in Oblivion, which even the Advan- tage of high Birth could net hide from the Knowledge Detestation of their Cotemporaries. These Writers, have, like unfaithful Painters, given Beauty to their Ob- jects which they never possessed, have made a Work this Kind in a Manner both new and necessary. As um- biassed Authors, we shall not be afraid to pull aside the Ermine, to shew the Corruption which lies hidden be hind, and our Reverence for Truth will embolden to disclose the Weakness of the Head, even when encircled by the Diadem.

THURSDAY's POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) FOREIGN NEWS. Paris, November 13. OME Gentlemen of Nor- mandy have been arrest- ed at their own Houses, and sent to the Bastile, or to Vincennes, for it is not certainly known which. Among those who are known are the Marquis de Condray, the Marquis de Try, and the Marquis de Monpeuson ; M. du Fosse, Coun- sellor of the Great Chamber, and M. de Belbeuf, late Attorney General; besides M. le Maitre, the celebrated Advocate. Twenty- five Members of that Parliament, who were at first banished into the Country, have since received Letters de Cachet, which directs them to go farther off. The Volunteers of Soubise are ordered into Nor- mandy, to prevent the Disturbances that are ap- prehended there. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Nov. 21. Early on Tuesday Morn- ing, a young Couple, or. a matrimonial Errand to Scotland, passed through this Town in a Chaise and Four. Notwithstanding their expeditious Mode of attaining the Land of Cakes, they were so smartly pursued by a Servant belonging to the young Lady's Family ( who had taken Saddle- Horses for the two last Stages) that they were stopped in their Career at Morpeth; the Servant having the Audacity upon coming up with them at an Inn Door, to present a Pistol to the Breast of the ill- fated enterprizing Youth, and demand the Lady, which was instantly tamely submitted to, and the Lady immediately locked up until the Arrival of her Maid, who came up with them in about three Quarters of an Hour after in a Post- Chaise. The young Lady, we hear, is Heiress to an immense Fortune; comes from St. Edmundsbury, in Suffolk; and the young Gentleman is a Physician's Son in the same Place. LONDON, Tuesday, Nov. 24. A true State of the Number and Quality of the Manufactures at present carrying on in all the British Colonies, we are informed, is now prepar- ing to be laid before an august Assembly. It is said, that in the Course of the ensuing Ses- sion of Parliament, a Motion will be made for Leave to bring in a Bill to oblige all Persons act- ing as School- Masters or Teachers to take out Licenses and to produce sufficient attested Certifi- cates of their Qualification, upon Examination by Persons appointed for that Purpose. Lord Mansfield declares, that the Commission of Supervisorship is now warranted by Law ; and it is on this Account we now hear that nothing can be done in the Company's Business till the Opinion of Parliament is obtained by the Di- rectors. It is reported that the Supplies for the ensuing Year will be settled on a Plan similar to that of the preceding Year. The most sensible Men think that two Things would speedily lower the Price of Provisions; a Stop to the Exportation of Corn, and a Tax upon Horses ; the first would keep our Grain en- tirely at Home, and the second would prevent the Fruits of the Earth from being shamefully devoured by unnecessary Animals. The Bounty granted by Government on Corn is universally deemed one of the most impolitic Measures ever adopted by a sensible Nation ; we pay our Farmers a large Sum of Money to feed Foreigners upon better Terms than we ourselves are fed, and then think it a mighty difficult Cir- cumstance to discover why our industrious Poor are reduced to the greatest Distresses for Bread. It is apprehended, that the most effectual Me- thod of keeping the Markets constantly supplied with Grain, would be by first directing Juries of the most honest and substantial Inhabitants in every Hundred, to ascertain the Quantity of Corn each Farmer or other Person had, and then obliging such Persons to bring proper Quantities of that corn weekly to open Market. The Right Hon. the Lord Mayor has given Or- ders for the proper Officers to attend every Market Day at Smithfield, to prevent the iniquitous Prac- ice of the monied Butchers, who come often and Purchase thirty Head of Cattle at 111. a- piece, and then sell them by one or two with an addi- tional Price of 5 or 61. Information, we hear, has been given of a great Man at Windsor, for buying up whole Barges of corn, and detaining them there, only sending one two down the River at a Time, to enhance the Markets. We hear that Mr. Banks, Dr. Solander, and Dr. Lind, are to make another Voyage round the world next Year. It is said to have been determined by the Board f Green Cloth, that the Verge of the Court hall in future screen no Debtor who owes more an 20l. to one Person. We hear from Dublin, that the new Lord Lieu- enant, the Day after his Arrival, gave Orders to ut a Stop to the Exportation of all Kinds of Pro- isions : In Consequence of which, some Dutch d French Vessels, waiting for Lading at Corke had very humanely made an Addition of three Halfpence per Day to the Pay of the Soldiers, on the Dublin Duty, for the Time being, in Consi- deration of its being the heaviest Duty in the Kingdom, and Provisions being dearer there than any other Part of that Kingdom. Last Wednesday died, at his Lordship's Seat at Sirlbury, near Blyth, in Nottinghamshire, Wil- liam Monckton Arundel, Viscount Galway, and Baron of Killard, of the Kingdom of Ireland, Member of Parliament for Pontefract in York- shire, Receiver of the Crown and Fee Farm Rents of Durham, Northumberland, & c. His Lord- ship is succeeded in Title and Estate by his eldest Son, now Lord Viscount Galway, a young Noble- man of 22 Years of Age. The Siege of Ceuta by the Moors has thrown the Spaniards into the greatest Consternation. And the Arrogance of the Emperor of Morocco, in refusing the landing of our Ambassador has given Umbrage to the Court of Britain. The Christian Slaves already secured in the Kingdom of Morocco amount to Five Thousand, which is a horrid Circumstance to a feeling Mind in these Times of enlightened Faith. The frequent Hen- Roosts lately robbed by the Soldiery, has made his Majesty determine to in- crease their daily Pay to one Shilling. About Four o'Clock last Saturday Morning, in Oxford- road, a Party of Horse, about 12 in Num- ber, with Swords drawn, mounted on grey Horses and blue Cloaks, stopt all the Waggons, Higglers Carts, & c under Pretence of searching for smug- gled Goods. These Waggons, & c. coming from the Inland Counties of Oxfordshire and Bucking hamshire, were not likely to have any such Thing; however, it was of material Detriment to the Pro- prietors of Carcases of Beasts, Calves, Hogs, Sheep, & c. for the Market for whole Carcases was over, and the Salesmen of Newgate Market were obliged to take any Thing that was offered. A drunken Fellow with a Deputation can lower the Price of Provisions by calling in the Military to his Assistance, as it appeared to be nothing else, for it was impossible that an Information could be laid against all Carriages that came that Way, and there were 11 or 12 stopt at one Time and obliged to stay till all were searched, which took up some Hours. On the 7th of November the following Persons were committed at York on Suspicion of having defrauded several Persons by cutting at Cards and Gambling, which they are supposed to have practised in other Places : William Holland and Richard Holland, two Brothers, from Newport in Shropshire ( as they say); Thomas Billings, a Miller, from Dudley in Worcestershire; John Shotton and Benjamin Shotton, from Newport in Shropshire ; John Pool, from Bleachley in Shrop- shire ; Job Taylor, from Norsield, near Birming- ham ; and Lawrence Small, from Shaftsbury in Dorsetshire: They had with them Horses an swering the following Descriptions; an aged chesnut Horse, fourteen Hands one Inch high, many Saddle Spots, long Nag Tail not nicked, and putting out a Kirb on his far hind Leg ; a grey Galloway, about twelve Hands one Inch high, with a Nag Tail; a bay Horse fourteen Hands one Inch high, both his near Feet white, rather lame before, and a Spavin on his near hind Leg; a blind bright bay Mare fourteen Hands and a Half high, both hind Feet white, a Snip on her Nose, a Nag Tail, a Scar on her near Huggan ; a chesnut Mare fourteen Hands high, her far hind Foot white, a Spot of white on her Shoulder, and has a very short Swish Tail; a chesnut Mare fourteen Hands three Inches high, white Face, blind of her near Eye, the other very bad, her near fore and far hind Feet white, cripples on her Fetlock, a large Scar on her near Buttock, and a large Saddle Spot on her near Side. Sunday Night about Nine o'Clock, a most me- lancholy Accident happened at Mr. Eyre's, at Farnham, in Surry ; as his Servant, a young Man, was making Candles, he unfortunately fell into the Copper, nine Feet deep, in which was boiling Tallow ( though so deep he was able to get out of himself) it was some Time before any one came to his Assistance; he lived till Four o'Clock on Sun- day Afternoon in the greatest Agonies, and quite sensible to the last. What was very extraordinary, about Half an Hour before the Accident hap- pened, a Woman went in and found him asleep, who awaked him ; he told her he had dreamed he fell into the Copper.

Richard Tallis and Richard Hemming, of Birmingham, Dealers in Timber, the White Lion in Stratford upon Avon ----- Dec 18 John Intelligence from our Correspondents in London, dated Wednesday, November 25. utmost Hurry is now observable in all the different Departments of Go- vernment against the Meeting of Par- liament To- morrow : — The King's Speech is now entirely settled, and will, we are well assured, humanely recommend the legislative Attention to the enormous Price of Provision and the lamentable Decay of Manu- factures. There was a select Meeting of the Privy Coun- cil at Lord North's on Monday Night, in which, we hear, it was determined after the usual Sup- plies for the immediate Service of the public Bu- siness were granted, to proceed upon the Affairs of India, and to ground an immediate Question upon such Informations as the Secret Committee were already able to lay before the Parliament. After the foregoing Resolution was adopted, it was agreed that Committees should be ordered for three particular Purposes. First, a Commitree to enquire into the best Method of rendering Provi- sions more plenty. Secondly, a Committee to examine into the Causes of a Decline in our Ma- nufactures. And, thirdly, a Committee to con- sider the present State of the British Coinage, a Matter of the utmost Consequence to the com- mercial Prosperity of these Kingdoms. Those who are in the secret scruple not to af- firm with the most positive Certainty, that a Great Company with all its Affairs, will be to- telly lodged under the Power of Government. This is looked upon as certain, and impossible to be evaded. The first Use it is supposed, that will be made of the Bengalian Revenue, will be to pay off the new Debts of the Civil List.

John Clymer ( a Journeyman Carpenter, who lived in Bird- port) Sarah his Wife ( who was a School- mistress) and Mary Clymer, their Niece, they being sus- pected of feloniously stealing a Piece of Garnet and white Bevereen, the Property of Mr. Joseph Featherstone, Mercer, in High- Street; and also suspected of stealing divers other Things, found in the House of the said John Clymer, who, and his Wife, gave a very inconsistent Account how they became possessed of such a Variety of Goods: But the Niece, when put upon her Examination, made a very ample and ingenuous Confession, and delivered herself so intelligibly, regularly, and with such decent Confidence, as gave great Satisfaction to the Persons present. The chief Particulars of her Declaration were, That she, and her Aunt, in their Practice of Shop- lifting, for between two and three Years, had robbed be- tween 20 and 30 different shops in this city and wall and Crane, Haberdashers; Mr. F stone, Mercer; Mr. Blayney, Silk Mercer Milliner ; Mr. Southan, Mercer and Haberda Miss Bridges, Milliner; Mr. Parsons, Ha dasher Mr. Mann, Grocer; Mr. Cotterell, S maker; Mr. Deakin, Silversmith ; Mr. Gr Grocer; Mr. Fairfax, Grocer; Mr. Thomp Breeches- maker; Mr. Bishop, Hat- maker; Moule, Shop- keeper; and Mrs. Clarke, S keeper.— The Circumstance which occasion Discovery of these Shop- lifters, was, Cly Wife offering to Sale a Quantity of Kiddermin Stuff ( the Property of Mr. Featherstone) gre under its intrinsic Value, which causing Su cion that it was stole, she was stopped, her House being searched, the following tides were found therein, viz. a Quantity Muslin, Lace, LinnenCloth, Kidderminster St Checks, Silver Tea- Spoons, two Pair of new ther Breeches, a Pair of Women's Shoes, Men's Hats ( unfinished), some Gloves, Che a large Quantity of sine Tea and Sugar, & c. And when the Husband was apprehended he on a Pair of Breeches and a Hat, suppose have been stole: But notwithstanding this, Niece endeavoured, as far as possible, to ex pate her Uncle, by declaring that he had of remonstrated against the Proceedings of her and Aunt, and expressed his Apprehension t they would shortly bring themselves to Gallows. Since the above Confession of Niece, the Aunt, it seems, has acknowledged Truth of the above Charges against her. It is now to be hoped that the Detection these old Offenders will soon be followed by Discovery of the Persons concerned in the ma Burglaries lately committed in this City ; thou we find that this Set of daring Plunderers continue in Action : For, early on Tuesday Mo ing last, some of them broke in at a Cellar W dow ( by wrenching out the Iron Bars) in Front of the House of Mr. Rea, Mercer, Broad- Street, and endeavoured, with a Hatch to force open a Door at the Bottom of the St leading up into the House, but finding that i practicable, they contented themselves with ta ing some of the Liquor in the Cellar, and ste ing about six or seven Pounds Weight of Wha bone, and a few Candles, and then made leaving behind them a Tin Lamp- Socket, whi it seems, was stole out of one of the Lamps bef the Town Hall. And on Tuesday Night an Attempt was md to break through a Cellar Head into Miss H ri's House ( the Boarding School in Forega Street); but the Rogues being disturbed, as supposed, by some People passing along, th were disappointed in their Design. In the Night between the 16th and 17th In a valuable Gelding was stole out of the Stal of Mr Brewer, of Newland Farm, in the Par of Norton, near this City ; and the same Nig a Mare, the Property of Mr. Hampton, was st out of a Ground at Yeonell: Both of the were supposed to be taken by the same Person Persons, and that they were upon the Road London ; and Intelligence being obtained th they had passed through Morton in Marsh, Breakspeare, of that Town, undertook a Pursu after them, by whose extraordinary Expediti and judicious Management he overtook, ne West Wickham, a Fellow, who had in his Custo both the Mare and Gelding; upon which Breakspeare seized him, and he being taken b fore Lord Le Despencer, was committed Aylesbury Gaol. At our Market, last Saturday, 508 Pockets Hops were sold, and the different Prices we from 41. 4s.— 41. 15s.— and 51. 5s. per Hundre At a Turnpike Meeting lately held at Ben worth, it was agreed to erect a new Toll Gate the Bottom of Broadway Hill. A few Days since as Mr. Roger Eykyn, Wolverhampton, Architect and Land and Tim ber Valuer, was travelling, in a Chaise with fou Horses, from Bridgnorth to Cleobury Mortime a Saddle- Horse being tied behind the Chaise, i crossing the Rea, near to the last- mentione Place, the Carriage and all the Horses, & c. were by the Rapidity and Violence of the Strea swept down the River, which they swam for considerable Way ; the Postilion on the fore Hor very fortunately happened to catch hold of Bush, by which Means he Hopped the Carriage and, in all Probability, saved not only his ow Life, the other Postillion's, and Mr Eykyn's ( wh with Difficulty got through the front Window o the Chaise, Part of which was under Water) bu the Horses, some of which being nearly spent and unable to get out of the River without Assistance not with standing their Traces were cut, had thei Heads kept above Water with Cords until other Horses could be procured to drag them out.— I it not surprizing that such dangerous Passages have not proper Bridges over them? At a late Meeting of the Gentlemen of the Corporation of Ludlow, the Hon. Sir Francis Charlton, Bart, was chosen Recorder for that Bo- rough, in the room of the late Earl Powis; which Office he has taken upon him during the Mi- nority of the present Earl, his Lordship being appointed to succeed to his late Father's Office at his coming to Age.

ILDHALL INTELLIGENCE. IT a late Court of Common Council, Mr. Bellas moved, " That the Thanks of the Court be to the Artillery Company for their important ice rendered to the Citizens of London at the serous Riot at Guildhall on the preceding Mon- [ Lord Mayor's Day.] This Motion seemed like the Signal for Battle, a very violent Opposition was made to it by the ermen Wilkes and Lewes, together with Mr. Reynolds, Mr. Saxby, and other Adherents Mr. Wilkes The Debate was carried on for the Hours, with a Degree of Violence and Inde- cy seldom seen before in Common Council. Mr. Wilkes attempted to ridicule the Riot, the anks, and the Artillery Company. He hoped these most gracious Thanks would be given to these aidable Heroes, with Beat of Drum, at the Head this terrible Regiment drawn up in Battle Array, abused the Lord Mayor in the grossest Terms for ry Part of his Conduct, however foreign to the tion in Debate. He accused his Lordship of an ire Chain of Falshoods in his Account of the t. He talked of Malagrida and the Shelburne ction. For his own Part, he said, he had a Hand a Sword; and that in Spite of Mr. Horne the grateful, the cowardly, the profligate Writer of Party, he would still continue with his Pen to orm his Country, and with his Sword to defend"' He said the Lord Mayor had infamously arged Mr. Lewes with having hired the Rioters. called upon the Sheriffs to give their Account of the Riot. He desired a Committee might be ap- pionted to enquire into the Causes of the Riot. He arged the Lord Mayor and Mr. Sheriff" Oliver th Neglect of Duty, in not taking proper Mea- sures to quell it. He asserted that the Lord Mayor as a " brutal Tyrant." And he insisted that the otion for Thanks to the Artillery. Company was emature ; and that Thanks could not be given to them, before a Committee had first enquired into Causes of the Riot. In short, he tried every method to tire out the Common Council, and evade e Question, and every Art, and every Topic of abuse to irritate and provoke the Lord Mayor in s Seat. Mr. Bellas repeatedly called Mr. Alderman ilkes to Order. He censured the Grossness of his convectives; and observed that the Common Council were not used to hear the Chief Magistrate treated such a Manner in that Place. He desired him keep to the Question; and to take Notice that hither the Character of the Lord Mayor, nor the conduct of their Magistrates, nor the Charge upon Mr. Lewes, nor the Causes of the Riot, nor Mala- ida, nor Mr. Horne, nor the Shelburne Faction, er yet the Pen nor the Sword of Mr. Wilkes, de the least Part of the Morion now before them, he said, that the simple Question was, whether the artillery Company had done their Duty, and whe- er they deserved the Thanks of that Court? that Mr. Alderman Wilkes disapproved the Motion r Thanks, he had but two Ways to get rid of it, ther by moving she previous Question, or by op- posing the Motion. Mr. Wilkes then called upon Mr. Sheriff Oliver, and desired he would inform that Court of the ve Part Mr. Oliver took to quell the Riot, and his Reason why he did not go out to the Mob, speak to them as Mr. Sheriff Lewes did. Mr. Oliver said, he understood very well that it as. Mr. Wilkes's usual Artifice to get rid of disa- greable Questions by Recrimination ; and by viru- at Abuse to engage Men's Passions into a Defence themselves, and by that Means to escape those examinations into Mr. Wilkes's own Conduct which it would not hear. He said, that the late Mob at Guildhall differed almost from all others : nor, upon all other Occasions, there had usually en some general Cry by which they discovered the Cause of their assembling; they had usually some Ground of Complaint, some Grievance to be addressed, some Relief to be obtained, or some Pe- tion to be answered. In all these Cases, he said, might perhaps be sometimes proper to expostulate with them; either to convince them of their Errors, on shew that they ask an improper Thing, or in an Improper Manner, or of improper Persons; or, if their Request is reasonable, they may be promised Redress. But in the late Riot at Guildhall there was nothing of this Sort in the Case: There was no cause of Complaint pretended, no Grievance to be addressed, no Relief desired, no Request to be ob- tained. They were evidently employed to answer the Purposes and wreak the Revenge of a disap- pointed, desperate Individual ; who had not the Courage openly to attack or secretly to assassinate for himself. To what End expostulate with those who could have no Motive, and pretended no Cause for their assembling but Mischief? Mr. Oliver said, that he thought the Insult offered to him in the Pro- ssession, by breaking his Chariot Windows, was quite a sufficient Punishment for voting against Mr. Wilkes, and for exercising that Freedom of Election Which he should always assert, and which Mr. Wilkes sometimes affected to hold so sacred. He added, that the was not ashamed to say he had another Motive for not trusting himself in the Hands of that Mob; and that was, that he had good Information That he was himself the chief Object of their in- tended Mischief; and that had he not been so in- formed, Mr. Wilkes's Paragraphs in all the Papers for a Week before gave him sufficient Intimations of their Designs. Mr. Wilkes said, this was not the first Time that Gentleman had presumed to interrogate him con- cerning Paragraphs; that he ( Mr. Oliver) had done it last Week in the Council- Chamber, and had then received an Answer, viz. That he ( Mr. Wilkes) would give him no Satisfaction concerning the Pa- ragraphs, unless he chose to take the Satisfaction of a Gentleman. Mr. Oliver replied, it was true he did in the COUN- Cil- Chamber charge Mr. Wilkes with those false Pa- ragraphs intended to set the two Sheriffs at Vari- lance; but he asserted that what Mr. Wilkes now said was a Falshood; that Mr. Wilkes had never given him that Answer, " I asked you ( said Mr. Oliver) and I appeal to your Friend Mr. Lewes and others who were present, why, if you doubted my Spirit, you had not the Courage to try it your- self? and I told you that I was at your Service whenever you pleased ; but that your Attempt to set two Men at Variance who were joined in an Of- fice in which they could not separate, was the Act of a base Incendiary." Mr. Wilkes replied, that he did not remember to have heard those Words base Incendiary. Mr. Wilkes then turned off to the Lord Mayor, and attempted to irritate him on the Subject of Paragraphs. The Lord Mayor very coolly addressed himself to the Common Council, and said " Gentlemen, I have received some Information on the Subject of Pa- ragraphs which may possibly lead you to some Dis- covery concerning the Promoters of the late Riot. I am informed, upon the best Authority, that a cer- tain Person did last Week carry to Mr. Woodfall, the Printer of the Public Advertiser, a Paragraph for Insertion, which the Printer declared his Consci- ence would not permit him to insert, because it was so evidently calculated to produce Bloodshed and the most fatal Mischiefs, that he, the Printer, should all his Life after consider himself as guilty of the Murder it might produce. Now, Gentlemen, with Mr. Wilkes's Permission, if Mr. Wilkes will con- sent to it, I will send to desire the Printer's Attend- ance here, and request an Answer only to three short Questions." The Common Council, upon this Speech of the Lord Mayor, instantly cried cut, Send for him ! send for him! Mr. Wilkes seemed to say he should have no Ob- jections, and accordingly the Printer was sent for, and soon attended at the Door of the Common Council. But though Mr. Wilkes said he had no Objections, he did nothing but make Objections; he pretended dreadful Apprehensions for the Free- dom of the Press; and when any other innocent Man would have been eager to call in the Printer for his Justification, he, on the contrary, by de- bating, wrangling, Invectives, Divisions, Questions, & c. contrived so to stave off the Time, that Mr. Woodfall, after two Hours waiting at the Door, re- turned Home again to his Business, which would not admit his longer Absence. At length, after Mr. Woodfall was gone, Mr. Wilkes directed Mr. Lewes to move the previous Question against the Motion for Thanks to the Ar- tillery Company. Upon a Division, it was carried for the Motion of Thanks, and against Mr. Wilkes's previous Question, by a Majority of Eleven. In Answer to the above Charges on Mr. Wilkes, another Writer, of the opposite Party, who signs himself An Alderman, declares, First, That Mr. Wilkes, so far from ridiculing the Riot, was the most strenuous for the Committee to inquire in the Causes thereof; and so far from ob- jecting to Thanks being returned to the Artillery Company, he said, " he had no Objection, provided the Committee had first made their Enquiry." Nei- ther Malagrida nor the Shelburne Faction was men- tioned by Mr. Wilkes. Secondly, With respect to his calling Mr. Home " the ungrateful, profligate Writer," he says, These were not the Words used by Mr. Wilkes, and the Lord Mayor dares not stand forth and say they were. Thirdly, It is asserted that " Mr. Bellas censured the Grossness of Mr. Wilkes's Invectives, and said that neither the Pen nor the Sword of Mr. Wilkes made any Part of the Motion." This Writer de- clares, These are Things Mr. Bellas did not say ; almost the whole of the Speech attributed to Mr. Bellas is trumped up by Parson Horne; and what he did say was very different. Fourthly, Mr. Oliver is said to have asserted, " that Mr. Wilkes's Paragraphs, in all the Papers for a Week before, gave him sufficient Intimations of the Mob's Designs to do HIM a Mischief." This Writer asserts that Mr. Oliver made no such Speech, but said in a wining Tone, that the " Wicked Pa- ragraphs" were written by Mr. Wilkes, who was " very wickedly inclined." Lastly, It is said, " Though Mr. Wilkes said he had no Objections to sending for the Printer, yet he did nothing but make Octjections ; he pretended dreadful Apprehensions for the Freedom of the Press." This Writer declares the Fait basely mis- represented, and says, Mr". Wilkes not only said, but actually had, as to himself, no Objection to send- ing for the Printer; but he might justly object to the Measure as an Infringement on the Liberty of the Press. I say then, that Mr. Wilkes was justified in his Apprehensions for the Freedom of the Press ; the Proposal of sending for a Printer to examine, upon Interrogatories, is striking at the very Foun- dation of that Freedom; and I also fay, that the Proposals shewed an Inconsistency of Conduct not to be met with, except we search Bruce Castle for the Phoenomenon. This Patriot Writer then concludes with accusing Parson Home with being the Author of the above Narrative of Debates at Guildhall, which, he says is full of Lies and Misrepresentations.

I Have a Nephew, a Boy about ten Years of Age, who has been afflicted with the King's Evil for about four Years in so shocking a Manner, as is scarce ex- possible. , In his Thigh and Leg he had seven or eight Holes; his Neck appeared like unto a Honeycomb ; in his Cheeks he had seven or eight Holes, out of which his Spitt ran down his Shirt. I tried every Thing that could be thought of for Relief in vain. He has been to two of the most eminent Hospi- tals in London ; in one of which he was cut in the Neck ; and after trying their utmost Skill, and the Patient still growing worse, was by them advised to try the Salt Water as the only Remedy then left ; and if without any Benefit they assured me the Child was incurable. I accordingly tried the Waters for near two Months; notwithstanding which, the Child grew every Day much worse, and under went such excrutiating Pains as to threaten daily a Depriva- tion of Life. In the above Condition was the Child when I was re commended to try your Drops; which, to the Surprize of all who knew the Child, and to our great Comfort, has per- fected a Cure, and he is now in perfect Health, and free from all Disorders whatever. N. B. A Circumstance worthy of Observation is, that from the Time he began to take the Drops, he continue mending till the Cure was perfected ; and that during the Time of Cure there came a small Bone out of one of the Holes in his Cheeks.
