Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, June 17, 1773. Numb. 4123. Saturday's and Sunday's Posts LONDON, Friday, June 11. WEDNESDAY a Court of Common Council was held at Guild- hall at which were present the Lord Mayor, Aldermen Alsop, Stephenson, Crosby, Kennett, Hopkins, Bull, Wilkes, Kirk- man, Sawbridge, Oliver, Tre-- cothick, Lewes, Esdaile, Plomer, Halifax, and Thomas. Lord Mansfield being in the Court of King's Bench at Guildhall, trying Causes, the Common Council was held in the Matted Gal- lery, which was much crouded. After the Minutes of the Last Court were read, Mr. Alderman Wilkes said, that from every Idea of Decency, and Principle of Duty, he thought their first Bu- siness should be to congratulate his Majesty on the Increase of the Royal Family; that the safe Delivery of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester had given great Satisfaction to every Friend of the illustrious House of Hanover; that the Security of the Protestant Succession, and the Preservation of that illustrious House, were not only Objects of the greatest national Importance, but highly interesting to Europe in general; that he was sure it was unnecessary to expatiate to that Court on the signal Blessings this Nation had ex- perienced since we had been under the mild Go- vernment of the Brunswick Line, or on our Hap- piness in being delivered from the accursed Race of the Stuarts; that every Gentleman there he was certain felt what he despaired of expressing adequately, a real Joy on the pleasing Prospect of the Perpetuity of these Blessings, and therefore he should content himself with moving, " that an humble Address of Congratulation be pre- sented to his Majesty by this Court on the safe Delivery of the Duchess of Gloucester, and the Birth of a Princess." Sir Watkin Lewes then rose, and declared that he seconded the worthy Alderman's Motion. Mr. John Merry stood up next, and said, that the Alderman meant to mis- lead the Court, and disgrace the City. Mr. Wilkes called him to Order, and said he would suffer no Man to give so unjust and injurious a Turn to his Actions; that he had made that Mo- tion from a Sense of Duty and the Feelings of Loyalty ; had done it in the most decent and re- spectful Words, and he hoped the Address itself would be in the highest Terms of Affection and Regard to the King. Mr. Alderman Trecothick answered, that it would be an Affront to the King; that the Marriage was not certain, for his Majesty had never owned the Lady for his Sister, and therefore we did not know what we were about; that the King had a numerous Family, and therefore he thought we had nothing to do with it. Mr. Wilkes replied, that the Marriage was notorious, and that the Dukes of Richmond and Dorset, the Bishop of Exeter, Lady Albe- marle, & c. had been present at the Birth of the Princess, but if there was indeed any Doubt of the Facts, the Alderman had given an additional strong Reason for the Address, as the most pro- bable Means of making a full and satisfactory Enquiry into an Affair so interesting to the Na- tion ; that the Enquiry, if there was a Doubt, ought to be made while the Facts were recent, and could be ascertained with Precision; that a little Time might fatally deprive us of the most important Evidence, and render uncertain here- after what was now clear and indisputable; that it was therefore a Duty we owed to ourselves, to our Country, and to our Posterity; that a De- luge of Blood had been spilt in the unhappy Civil Wars between the Houses of York and Lancaster ; that notwithstanding his Majesty's numerous Pro- geny, which he prayed Heaven to preserve, the History of a neighbouring Kingdom gave a re- markable Instance of three Dauphins, Dauphi- nesses, and others of the Bourbon Family, to- wards the End of the Reign of Lewis XIV. be- ing carried off in a very short Time by a Purple Fever, and therefore no Business could be of greater Consequence to ourselves, or of more es- sential Duty to our Country. Mr. Trecothick declared, that he had no Doubt about the Mar- riage, and admitted all the Facts Mr. Wilkes had alluded to. Mr. Alderman Sawbridge observed, that he was sure the Alderman who made the Motion intended no Affront; had no Doubts himself of the Legality of the Marriage ; that if a Man and Woman lived together, and say that they are married, there could be no Doubt of its being a good Marriage, and quoted the late In- stance in the Commons of Mr. Hervey ; that the Court had not addressed on the Delivery of the Princess of Brunswick, or Queen of Denmark, and therefore he thought ought not now Mr. Wilkes thanked Mr. Sawbridge for doing Justice to the Purity of his Intentions, and remarked a Difference in the Cases, that the Duke of Glou- cester was the next Brother to the King, and, in Case of Failure of the direct Descendants of his Majesty ( which God forbid) his next Successor had married an English Lady, and had Posterity born among us & c. that therefore the Compli- ment was far from being improper. Mr. Saw- bridge then said, that neither of the Houses of Parliament had addressed, nor would it be proper now, as the King and the Duke were not upon Terms, that if this would be the Means of pro- moting the Enquiry, he would be for it, but he the Influence of the Crown; that the Address seemed the only Way to set on Foot an Enquiry, for the Satisfaction of the World ; that if the Fact is now involved in a Mystery, when a Course of Time is elapsed, it will be involved in still greater, and that the People of this Country were interested in the Event. The previous Question was afterwards mentioned, and generally agreed to. The Common Serjeant then put the previous Question, That this Question be now put; which was carried in the Negative : But several of the Members declared that they heartily wished for the Enquiry. Mr. Reynolds's Motion was post- poned, and the Consideration of the Recorder's Sa- lary , which was proposed to be 1000l per Ann. was adjourned to the next Common Council, which is to be held on Tuesday in the following Week. A Great Assembly have agreed that the follow- ing Clause be added to the East India Regulating Bill, viz. That every Proprietor possessed of 3000l. Stock, shall have two Votes; of 6000l. three Votes; and of 10, oo0l. four Votes, at Elections for Directors, of any future Ballot at the India- House. We hear that the Widows, who are Proprietors of 500l. East India Stock, intend petitioning the Upper House in Person, against that Clause in the present East India Bill, which so wantonly strips both them and their fatherless Children of their legal Inheritance. The Physicians attending his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester are said to be somewhat at a Loss precisely to determine his Highness's Disorder, being one Hour so extremely ill as to be confined to his Bed, and the next so well as to be able to ride out. A noble Lord ( R—— d) who proposed a Great Personage's intended Excursion to Portsmouth, has undertaken that the Expence of the Journey, Retinue, & c. shall not exceed 3000l. for which he has offered to farm it. Wednesday the Recorder of this City made the Report to his Majesty in Council of the Malefac- tors who were capitally convicted at last April Sessions at the Old- Bailey, viz. Wm. Collins, Tho. Oates, and Thomas Spooner, for breaking open and robbing the House of Mr. Baker, at Ranelagh. John Dussey and Richard Bolton, for breaking open and robbing the House of Miss Herleys, in James- Street, Bedford- Row. John Birch, for being concerned with Bolton in a Bur- glary, at lslington. James Webb, for robbing Peter Muney near Covent- Garden. Tho. Denni- son and Tho. Burn, two Gamblers, for stealing a Countryman's Box of Lace. Win. Parker for stealing a Gelding, the Property of Mr. Empson: And John Martin, for High Treason, with Re- gard to the Coin,. The five former, viz. Col- lins, Oates, Spooner, Dussey, and Bolton, are or- dered for Execution on Thursday Se'nnight. The six last are respited during Pleasure. We are told that his Majesty has ordered, that the Custom of the Recorder's making the Report of Prisoners under Sentence of Death in Newgate be for the future discontinued. By this new Ar- rangement, the Judges will have the same Power at the Old Bailey as at the County Assizes. On Tuesday Morning an Express came to the House of Sir Wm. Bagot ( Member for Stafford- shire) in Bruton Street, with the melancholy News, that on the preceding Day his eldest Son and Heir, aged 12, died at his Father's Seat at Blithfield, near Litchfield ; and this Day, to encrease the melancholy Scene, another Express came with the News, that Yesterday his two other Sons died : Their Disorder was a putrid fore Throat. At Alby, in France, the People became so des- perate, through Distress for Bread, that upwards of 40 unfortunate Wretches lost their Lives, and with them the Mayor of the Place, and his Lieu- tenant. The Parliament of Thoulouse, in Con- sequence of this Insurrection, has caused 200 Per- sons to be taken up. These Letters add, that four Men were broke upon the Wheel the 28th of May last, for Robberies committed in and about Paris, and that several more are taken up, and like to share the same Fate.

Camplin, Bachelor in Divinity, and Fellow of Corpus Christi Col- lege, was, by that Society, presented to the Living of Meysey Hampton, in the County and Diocese of Gloucester, worth upwards of 300l. a Year. Extract of a Letter from Exeter, June 5. " A Gang of Sharpers have made their Ap- pearance in these Parts, and committed great De- predations ; — the Amount of their Plunder is rated at some Thousands. The Discovery was accidental, and is as follows : At Honiton they had bought some Goods, and given the Seller Bills upon a House in London, to a considerable Amount; the Seller, thinking he had got good Chapmen, made them a Present of some Fish, which they committed to the Care of one of their Gang, who passed for a Servant, to send to Lon- don ; whilst he was packing it, he was observed to put in a Letter. A Tradesman, who had some Suspicion, and saw the Letter put in, offered to Pack it for him, which the Fellow agreeing to Place, where ( to the Number of six) they have been apprehended and committed. " At Crediton alone they have taken them in for 1500l. and at Tiverton one Man for 150l. I say nothing of our Losses here, they are very con- siderable ; indeed they have gone through the Country, and we have only had our Share."

Monday's and Wednesday's Posts. FOREIGN NEWS. Cronstad, May 12. WE have just received the certain Ad- vice that a considerable Number of Turks, which had passed the Danube, have been defeated by the Russians near Jaloniza.. The Loss of the Ot- tomans in Killed and Wounded amounts to ten thousand Men. The Russians, besides a great Number of Trophies, have taken twenty- eight Pieces of Cannon. Among the Prisoners are two Pachas, who have been conducted to Bucharest. Cronstad, May 19. The Turks, wanting to possess themselves of Giurgewo by Surprize, and knowing that there was only a Garrison in the Place of one thousand Men, marched out of Ruszick, to the Number of 5000, in order to pass the Danube, with the View of executing his Enter prize. But they, were no sooner em- barked than the Russians played the Cannon of the Fortress so briskly on the Ottoman Boats, that a great Number of them were sunk, and the rest put into Disorder. Most of the Turks were either killed or drowned in the Danube, and 372 made Prisoners. Dresden, June 2. We have received a very disagreeable Account of great Damage having been done by a Storm of Thunder and Light- ning in the Circle of Voigtland in this Electorate: The whole Town of Reichenbach is entirely re- duced to Ashes. The Effects of the Lightning were so sudden and so very rapid that the Inha- bitants had the greatest Difficulty to escape from the Flames. The Officers and Soldiers of the Elector's Regiment of Cavalry, which was in Garrison in that Town, had all their Baggage burnt. Lond. Gaz. COUNTRY NEWS. Bristol, June 10. Last Friday an Officer of Ex- wife in this City seized about 50 Cwt. of Soap, which, though made in England, was sold as so- reign. For several Years last past large Quanti- ies made in London have been sent to this City, and by a Broker disposed of to the Clothiers in the Country as foreign, on which a double Draw- back has been received of Government. By this Means the Clothier has been imposed on, the Re- - venue defrauded, the honest Trader injured, and the Millian or Fuller has innocently taken a false Oath, as often as he has applied for the Draw back. Canterbury, June 9. On Friday Night last a Labouring Man, of Minster, in the Isle of Tha- net, coming Home rather intoxicated, his Wife, who had often threatened him with Death for coming Home so disguised, at length took the fatal Resolution of strangling him by a Cord tied round his Neck, which she fastened to the Bed ; in which Situation he was found by the Neigh- bours the next Morning, she at the same Time lying by the Corpse. Some of the Children ( of whom there are fix) first alarmed the Neighbour- hood with the Death of their Father. The Wo- man expressed but little Concern for this horrid Act. She was brought on Saturday to St. Dun- can's Goal, where she lies committed for Petty reason, of which the Jury found her guilty for killing her Husband. The Fly increases daily in our Plantations of Hops, which portends a Blast. Gloucester , June 14. On Saturday the 5th In- stant, Mrs. Conibeere ( a Relation of Mr. Geo. Conibeere, of this City) and her two Daughters, were found most barbarously murdered. They lived in a lone House in the Village of Monk- Silver, near Taunton, in the County of Somer- set. Mrs. Conibeere was a Widow, between 80 and 90 Years of Age, possessed of about 40l. a Year for her Life ; on which she had lived with the strictest ( Economy to provide for the Support of her Daughters after her Death, and it is sup- posed had saved a pretty round Sum. The Baker's Boy, who used to supply them with Bread, came to the House, which Jay at a little Distance from the Road, and hallooed, as he used to do, to call them to fetch the Bread. He repeated this several Times, but no one coming, he dis- mounted and went to the House, where, on open- ing the Door, he discovered the shocking Scene of the poor old Woman and her two Daughters lying on the Floor with their Throats cut. The Boy ran into the Village with Cries of Murder, and the Neighbours instantly surrounded the House. The Bodies were found quite warm, the Blood still gushing from the Wounds; their Din- ner was on the Table. It is beyond a Doubt that the Baker's Boy came just at the Moment that the horrid Deed was perpetrated; and by his hal- looing alarmed the Villains, who escaped thro' the Back Door before they had Time to risle the House; for no Box was broke open, nor were any things taken away. One of Mrs. Conibeere's Daughters was seen in the Village between Eleven and Twelve, and it was but just One o'Clock when the Bodies were found. The Wooden Bar to the Door was laid upon the Table very bloody and it appeared that the Skull of each was terri- bly fractured, and their Throats cut in a most in human Manner. One of the Daughters had a Wound on her Cheek, as though, in attempting to rise, she had received a desperate Thrust from the End of the Bar, which was very bloody ; her Throat was cut so shockingly as almost to fever the Head from the Body. Many People have been taken up on Suspicion, but when our last Accounts came away there was not sufficient Proof against any one to warrant their Commit- ment. Some think it was perpetrated by a Part of the Gang of Cheats mentioned in our first Page, who have infested the Country round Exeter. LONDON, Monday, June 14. House of Lords, June 11.] In a Committee, went through and reported the Bill to prevent the retailing of Spirituous Liquors. Read a second Time the American Paper Bills Credit hereaster to be issued in America, as Tender in payment of Money, House of Commons, June 11.] In a Committee of Supply, voted 8750l. to Mr. Harrison, for a Reward for his invented Time- Keeper. And on Ways and Means voted 6o0, oool. to be raised by Loans or Exchequer Bills. On Thursday Night the Bill for establishing certain Regulations for the better Management of the Affairs of the East India Company, as well in India as in Europe, passed the House of Com- mons; and was ordered to the Lords. It was carried on a Division, 131 against 31. And on Friday the above East India regulating Bill was presented to the House of Lords, read a first Time, and ordered to be printed. Lord Chatham has written a long and very able Letter to a Noble Law Lord, on the Subject of East- lndia Affairs, declaring his unavoidable Re- solution ( on Account of the bad State of his Health) to remain in his present Retreat, " an inactive, though not unaffected Spectator of the Depredations of the Minister on the Constitu- tion of his Country; but strongly recommending it to the Noble Lord to exert his own Powers, and in his ( Lord Chatham's) Name to recommend it to all his Friends in the Upper- House, to oppose the Minster Inch by Inch. Mr. Dowdeswell has been again offered the Chancellorship of the Exchequer, but he has de- clined joining the present Ministry. We hear that the Queen's Physicians have given it as their Opinion, that her Majesty's Condition, who is in the fourth Month of Preg- nancy, will not admit of her being present at the approaching Review of the Fleet, without im- minent Danger. The Public may be assured, that the long de- pending Cause between the City of London and the three refractory Companies will terminate in the following Manner: If the Defendants should be cast, they will immediately bring a Writ of Error to suspend the Judgment of the Sheriff's Court, and carry the Cause before the House of Lords, where it will most certainly be given against the City. There can be no Appeal made from the Sheriffs to any other Court of Justice than the House of Lords. Dispatches are said to be received from the Bri- tish Ambassador at Madrid, signifying, that the Spaniards would not disarm their Fleet, though his Excellency remonstrated very spiritedly on that Subject with the Spanish Minister, who said, their Naval Armament was intended for the Spanish West- Indies to keep in Awe some of their rebel- lious Subjects. By many Letters from Germany to commercial Gentlemen in this City, we are informed, that the Emperor of Germany had put himself at the Head of a Body of 70,000 Men, and has entered Turkey by Way of Hungary .— The Peace between Russia and Turkey would have been long since con- cluded had it not been impeded by a sudden Claim of the Emperor on the Porte, for Dominions ceded to the latter from Compulsion, to which the Porte had no Manner of Right but from their su- perior Force of Arms. Extract of an authentic Letter from Mr. Malone, an Irish Gentleman at the Havannab, April 24. " The Guasco, Don Pedro Aurillas, a Spanish Frigate of thirty Guns, has just arrived here from the Coast of Chili in South- America, and brings the melancholy Intelligence to the Spaniards, of the native Chilesians having absolutely repossessed themselves of best Part of that Country, having partly extirpated, and partly drove all the Eu- ropeans from it. This insurrection began at the latter End of the Year 1771, and continued to the Middle of last Year with amazing Success on the Side of the Chilese, who possessed themselves of the whole Island of Chiloe, and several Towns on the Sea- Coasts of Chili, together with the Cities of Conception, Coquimbo, Villarica, & c. They likewise attacked St. Jago, the Capital, Bal- divia, and the Town of Imperial, but were, after doing much Damage, repulsed, The Governor of Lima ordered a Fleet of four Sail of the Line, three Frigates, and some smaller Vessels with Troops, Ammunition, and Stores, to sail for Chili, to assist the Spaniards, while the Governor himself gathered an Army of Forty Thousand Men, mostly Indians and Mestize, and marched himself at the Head of them. After a tedious March, the Army arrived on the loth of July, 1772, in the Valley of Araves, where they found a Body of Twenty- four Thousand Chilese, drawn up to oppose them. The Spanish Troops charged them, and after a little Stand the Chilese seemed to make a Retreat towards Araves, and the Spaniards followed them ; but, being drawn into a narrow Pass, fresh Numbers of the Chilese poured in upon them, and made such Havock, that the Governor himself, with between eleven and twelve thousand Men only, made good a Re- treat, and got into the City of Baldivia, which they fortified and strengthened. On the 22d of July the Chilese, to the Amount of One Hundred Thousand, invested the City, and having a Num- ber of Field- Pieces with them, continued the Siege with great Fury. In the mean Time the Ships from Lima arrived in the Harbour of Baldivia, and threw their Men and Supplies into the City, which protracted the Siege till the 2d of August, when the Chilese entered at a Breach, and setting Fire to every Part of the City, murdered without Distinction Spaniard, Negro, and Indian. The Governor of Lima, and the Governor of Baldivia, with most of the Spaniards of Note, and about four thousand others, escaped on board the Ships, where the Treasures were before lodged ; the rest of the Spaniards, and their Indians, either sell Sa- crifices to the Fury of the Chilese, or made a Re- treat to the Country. Baldivia was soon burnt down to the Ground, and the Chilese razed every Part of it, so that scarce a Vestage remains. The Ships failed immediately back for the Port of Cal- lao, except the Gasco, which was dispatched with these Advices to Old Spain, but put in here for Provisions." Among the sundry fashionable Routs or Clubs that are held, that of the Black or Negro Ser- vants is not the least. On Thursday Night no Horns, and other Instruments, at a Public- House in Southwark, till Four in the Morning. No Whites were allowed to be present, for even all the Performers were of Cain's Colour. Thursday two celebrated Fortune- tellers were brought before the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, by the City Marshal, on a Complaint of several Gentlemen of the Ward of Farringdon Without; many very curious Letters were produced from credulous young Girls to these Dippers into Fu- turity, particularly one good- natured Lass, who desired to know whether she was with Child by her Master, and when he would marry her. His Lordship was pleased to release them, on giving Security that they would leave the City imme- diately. There were no less than twelve Ladies waiting to know their Fortune in an adjacent Room, when the City Marshal went into the House. On Saturday Evening a young Lady, Daughter to a Tradesman near Cornhill, went from her Father's House, dressed in white, on a matrimo- nial Excursion, but being soon missed, she was pursued, and carried back to her Father's House, and closely confined in a Two- pair of Stairs Room, which so enraged her that she threw herself out of the Window, and died on the Spot. Not long since a Gentleman observing the Daughters of one of his Tenants dressed in the Tip of the Mode, with high Caps and Negli- gees, grew alarmed at the growing Luxury of the Farmer, and was determined to take him down, having then a good Opportunity to do so, his Lease being just expired ; which the Farmer re- newed, indeed, but with an Addition from his Landlord of One Hundred per Annum. This had such an Effect on the Farmer, knowing the Cause, that he ordered his Daughters to produce their Caps, on Pain of his eternal Displeasure, when he made a Pile, and committed them to the Flames, as a Victim to their Vanity and his own Folly.

SPANKER COVERS, this Season, at Powick, near Worcester, at One Guinea each Mare, and Half a Crown the Servant. He was got by Sir Marmaduke Wywell's Antelope, who was got by the famous Belgrade out of Lord Leigh's Charming Molly. Spanker never started but eight Times, out of which he won seven. He carried sixteen Stone this Season in the Field; is perfectly found, and free from all natural Blemishes. He is very lucky in getting Foals, which are exceeding strong and boney sembly, that the East India Regulating Bill should be read a second Time this Day, which was opposed by the Duke of Richmond, and thers, and, after a short Debate, the Question was put, when 35 appeared for, and 13 against it. The Lords to be summoned. A Motion was made for all Papers, Charters, & c. of the East- India Company, to be laid before the Upper Assembly. Passed in the Negative, 33 against 15. On the D of R d's Motions concerning the East- India Bill being rejected in a Great Assembly on Friday last, a Protest was entered thereupon, which was signed Yesterday by seven Members of that Assembly. PROTEST signed in the House of Lords Yester day, June 14, 1773, on the Bill to rob the East India Company of their chartered Rights, pur chased of the Public under the Sanction of a Par- liamentary Guarantee. BECAUSE a Bill, evidently taking away, without Consent or Compensation, several Rights and Privileges now enjoyed by a great corporate Body, purchased for a valuable Consideration, and confirmed by the most solemn Sanctions of parliamentary Faith, can be justified only by such Delinquency as incurs a Forfeiture of those Rights, or by such urgent Necessity as admits of no Method consistent with the Charter of the Com- pany, for the immediate Preservation of those Objects for which the Corporation was formed. The Evidence therefore of such Delinquency, or such Necessity depending essentially on Matters of Fact and Record, it is impossible for Peers to proceed on this Business in a proper Manner, while they are unfurnished with that Informa- tion which it was our Duty to demand, and which it was the Disposition of the House to refuse. Secondly, Because the House of Commons had appointed Committees to examine into the State and Condition of the East India Company, and have from them received several Reports previous to the bringing in this Bill ; a previous Course of the same Kind is equally necessary in this House; nor is it enough for Lords to be informed from common Conversation that other Men have done their Duty as a Reason for neglecting ours. This House nevertheless ( in Conformity to its late Me- thod of Proceeding, but in direct Contradiction to the uniform Practice and Principle of better Times) has wholly declined to make any En- quiry into this important and delicate Subject ; though such Enquiry had been strongly recom- mended from the Throne at the Opening of this Session. Not content with this Neglect of Duty and Contempt of his Majesty's Recommendation, a Conference with the Commons was also refused ; by which, however imperfectly, the Inattention of the Peers might have been remedied by the Diligence of the other House ; and when a Con cession was made that the Reports of the Com- mittees of the House of Commons should be laid before us, on Condition of their not being read by the Clerk, this small Concession of imperfect In- formation was immediately withdrawn, and the House resolved to proceed altogether in the Dark. Thirdly, Because We conceive, that, the Rea- son of Dispatch assigned for this Refulai of all Sorts of Information to be unworthy the Legisla- tive and the Judicial Character of the House, We are persuaded that, invested as We are with a public Trust of the highest Importance, We ought in all Cases to postpone our Amuse- ments to our Duties, and are bound to measure our Consideration of the Affairs before us, not by the Season of the Year, but by the Nature of the Business. If We once admit the advanced Period of the Session as a Reason of refusing to ourselves every Information required by the Case, the Commons have it in their Power to preclude the House from the Exercise of its deliberative Capacity ; they have nothing more to do than to keep Business of Importance until the Summer is advanced, and then the Delay in that House is to be assigned as a sufficient Ground for a preci- pitate Acquiescence in . his. Fourthly, Because we think, that having re- jected the antient, reasonable, and parliamentary Mode of Proceeding, the Maxim established in its Place is dangerous and irrational. We do constantly deny that what is commonly called public Notoriety ( which is in Reality no better than common Rumour) is or can be a Ground quently uncertain in its Foundation, generally under the Influence of violent Passions, and en- tirely destitute of that Accuracy which is neces - sary for ascertaining the Nature, Extent, or Ten- dency of any Grievance, or consequently for furnishing any wise or adequate Methods of Re dress. Signed, RICHMOND, ROCKINGHAM, FITZWILLIAMS, PORTLAND, MILTON, DEVONSHIRE, PONSONBY. A Petition was presented Yesterday to the House of Peers, on Behalf of the East- lndia Com- pany, praying to be heard by Council against the East India Regulating Bill. Last Week died, at his House in Leadenhall- Street, John Company, Esq; a very old; reputable, and eminent Merchant, & c. one to whom Thousands were obliged. He was taken ill in Novem- ber last, and unluckily having, within a few Yean, made some Acquaintance at what is called the po- lite End of the Town, and having been slighted by his old Friend Dr. Bank, he neglected his Friends the Physicians in the City, and applied for Relief to Dr. North and Dr. Parliament, two Pers- ons of some Eminence ; but they, quite mistake- ng his Case, gave him such Remedies as put an End to his Being. There will be no Lottery this Year The Rea- son assigned by Lord North was, the present dis- tressed State of public Credit, and that the public Service required no important Operation of Finance: The true Cause of there being no Lottery this Year is; we are assured from good Authority, the Refusal of the monied Men in the City having any Thing to do with it. Lord North's Promise of discharging the 17, ooo, ooo1. in ten Years is come to nothing; not a Shilling of the funded Debt being to be paid off this Year. Oh Friday the Bill to repeal an Act made in the 10th. Year of his present Majesty, for pre- venting the stealing of Dogs, and for making other Provisions in Lieu thereof, passed the House of Commons. The House of Commons will positively break up on Monday se'nnight. The Suspicion that a Change of Ministers is in Agitation continues. it is reported that the Duke of G. has written a Letter to the K—, in which he informs him, that " he believes he has not long to live ;" and begs, as the most ardent Wish of his Heart, to be recon- ciled to his Brother, and to share his Affection the little Time he expects to survive his present Malady. Letters from Dublin Express their Hopes of his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester's visiting that University this Summer, if his Health will permit, in order to be installed Chancellor. His Royal Highness was elected Chancellor on the Death of the late Duke of Bedford. — We are told that the Revenue of that University amounts to upwards of 4000I. per Annum. The Resolution of the City of London not to address his Majesty on Occasion of the Dutchess of Gloucester being safely delivered of a Princess, is said to have determined several other Corpora- tions, contrary to their former Intentions, to take no Notice of that Event. It is said the Board of Admiralty is to entertain his Majesty, during the three Days the Royal En- sign flies at Spithead, on board the Barfleur: And that the Contractor for the three Royal Ban- quets is allowed 4000I. Her Majesty does not accompany the King on this Excursion. A Correspondent assures us, that One Hundred Guineas have been refused in Portsmouth for a House only during the Residence of his Majesty. For some Time past the People at Portsmouth and Goport would not let any Lodgings without stipulating for an extraordinary Sum for the Week his Majesty was to be there; from 14 Guineas to 20 are given only for a Bed- chamber for that Time, and the People there laugh in their Sleeves at the Curiosity of such who give it, as the first Broadside from the Fleet will put an End to any Thing being seen of the Fleet, as they will be enveloped in Clouds of Smoak. A great Number of small Vessels from the Coast of France have already arrived at Spithead, and many more are expected. Lord Sandwich's Attorney sent a Letter to the Printer of the London Evening- Post on Saturday last, informing him, that the Trial between him and his Lordship ( which was to have come on the 16th Inst.) would be put off till next Term. Last Monday, being the Anniversary of Lord Bute's Birth- day, there was a numerous Meeting of his Lordship's Tradesmen at the King's Head Tavern in New Bond- Street, who after Dinner drank several loyal Healths on the Occasion, with a particular one, " That all Noblemen and other great Persons in England would follow his Lord- ship's Example, in paying his Tradesmen punctu- ally every Month." Sunday Morning the Pursers of the Duke of Cumberland, Capt. Savage, and the Shrewsbury, Capt. Jones, East Indiamen, came to the East India House, with the News of the above Ships being safe arrived off the Isle of Wight, from Bombay. Yesterday a Man was taken into Custody, charged with several Forgeries to the Amount of Seven Hundred and Eighty Pounds. Sunday Evening John Duffey, Richard Bolton, William Collis, and Thomas Spooner, who are to be executed on Friday next for Burglaries, found Means to saw off their Fetters and attempted to escape from their Cells; as did also James Monk, Edward Delany, and William Lushley, who are under Condemnation for Burglary and Highway Robbery. They behaved very despe- rate on being detested, and swore the long Con- finement they had undergone was ten Times worse than Death ; they were at length properly secured the latter was killed on the Spot : He was Heir to a good Estate in Worcestershire. There is too much Reason to think that when the three Combined Powers have divided Poland they will proceed farther. These Powers are said, from the Beginning, to have had three great Points in View. Russia is determined, if possi- ble, to secure the Navigation of the Black Sea and the Bosphorus; the Object of Austria is the Conquest of Belgrade, Servis, Bulgaria, Mol davia, and Walachia; and of Prussia, the Pos- session of the Coasts, Ports and Towns of the Bal tick, together with the City of Dantzick. This latter supposition seems further justified by the An- swer which, on Credible Authority, the Court of Petersburgh made lately to the British Court, con- c erning the Guaranty of 1767, viz. " That she was ready to join in securing the Rights of Dant- zick, so far as they were consistent with the Pre- tensions so far third Power." It is further justified by a Declaration said to be made by Austrian '' That she was also ready to join in any Plan, to circumscribe the Ursurpation of Prussia, provided Russia would do the same." on Thursday was apprehended at Arundel in Suffex, one Stretton, late Servant to Mr. Edw. Nodes; Farmer, at Hambleton in Ham- ps hire, who, on the 4th Instant in the Afternoon; broke open a Chest belonging to his said Master; and stole thereout One Hundred Pounds in Gold; Five Pounds in Crown and Half- Crown Pieces; and 150 Farthings; On his Examination before a Magistrate he confessed the Fact; and delivered up One Hundred Pounds, Nineteen Shillings of the said Money. In the Night between the 7th and 8th Instant, Richard Holt, of Bierton, near Aylesbury, in the County of Bucks, Farmer, was most barbarously murdered in his Bed- Chamber ( his Brains being beaten out) and his House plundered of Money and other Effects; by some Persons unknown; who, it is supposed, got down the Chimney into the said Room; two Ladders having been found the next Morning set against the House, and the Top of the Chimney being damaged; Two Clubs were found in the Bed- Chamber, and and other Club, with Mr. Holt's Gun, in the Yard near the Door of the House.

On Saturday last was committed to our County Goal, John Everitt, Farmer and Tileman, of Yardley, he being charged, by the Coroner's In- quest, with killing his Wife on a sudden Quar- rel, on the 3d Instant; the Particulars of which are said to be as follow, viz. His Servant Mar coming to the Door at the Time, found it fast and heard his Mistress crying out; he then went into the Brewhouse, and saw him kneeling upon her Breast, with one Hand upon her Mouth, and the other upon her Throat; this alarmed him so much that he went to a neighbouring Woman, and related the Story, strongly suspecting the Consequence would be bad : On his Return; which was in a short Time, he heard no Noise: soon after this, Everitt went to one of his Neigh bours and told her his Wife was very ill; and he imagined she would soon be dead. After con- cealing her Death with as much Art he was Capa- ble of, she was buried the Sunday following ; but Suspicions increasing, her Body was taken up on Thursday last, and examined by the Coroner's Inquest. La st Wee k were discovered in a Rabbit Holes about five of six Miles from Birmingham, a Number of Pieces of base Metal ( designed for To the PRINTER. SIR, WITH the highest Opinion of Lord clive's Abilities and Integrity, I always thought himmuch indebted to Fortune. The Accident at first sent him to India, the Concurrence of Cir- cumstances that led him into the Military Line, the opportunities he met with to distinguish himself, y Conduct as well as Courage, on the Coast of Co- mandel, and at last the Treachery of Surajah owla, and the Destruction of Calcutta, which lled him forward to a greater Scene of Action, he all to be placed to the Account of his good Fortune. If the Peace of Aix la Chapelle had been observed in India, Lord Clive would probably at his Hour have been the Chief of some of our in prior of Settlements, or at the best perhaps a rich Governor returning from Madrass. His Conduct the most trying Situations has proved that he was forthy of the good Fortune that placed him in them, great Occasions are thrown away upon common then. I do not mean to write the Panegyric of Lord clive. There was a Time when the English Nation acknowledged his Services with Gratitude and Rap- re. After a Moment's Delusion they are re- turning very fast to the same Sentiments. A wise people cannot long be deceived by the insidious Articles of a Party formed to ruin an Individual, under the Pretence of a general Reformation ; a grave and generous People cannot long be unjust. But without attending to his Services, or the Re- ward they have met with, I still mean to insist upon his good Fortune. At this Period of Life he had Right to expect, that he should ever have an opportunity of shewing the World, that the same Man who had borne the most extraordinary Success and Advancement with Moderation, could preserve the Equality of his Mind at the Approach of Ad- versity, and support the Loss of every Thing but Character with Temper and Resolution. I con- gratulate him not so much upon the Triumph of a most honourable Acqnittal, as upon having justly concurred those personal Enmities that brought him to the Trial. It is well known from what Cause whose Enmities have proceeded. He was solicited to undertake the invidious, ungrateful Office of correcting Abuses and punishing Offenders: and he returned from his last Expedition to India loaded with the Enmity of Individuals, whose Applause and Friendship he might easily have acquired. There cannot be a stronger presumptive Proof of his having faithfully discharged his Duty to the Public. From this Period we are to date the Design of a particular set of Men to rob him of his Fortune, and to six an odious Stain upon his Reputation. The Facts on which they have chiefly insisted, were as publicly known a Dozen Years ago as they are at this Mo- ment. Why were they not made the Subject of enquiry and Prosecution before he was sent out in the last Instance to put a Stop to the Proceedings of some of the Company's Servants at Bengal ? Why is the Memory of an execrable Tyrant lately be- come the Object of so much Tenderness and Re- spect ? The good Man slumbered, bonus dormitat, while an hundred English Gentlemenwere suffocated in a loath some Dungeon. If he had been waked, perhaps he might have set them at Liberty. To Judge of what he would have done, it might be proper to read Mr. HolIwell's Account of the brutal Cruelty with which he treated the few who survived. is the chaste Governor Burgoyne really such an Chemy as he pretends to be to thé touching of pub- ic Money ? Though we never heard of his Ser- vices, we have seen him loaded with Honours and moluments. We have also seen him charged, soon very strong circumstantial Evidence, with pocketing the Purchase Money of a Patent Place, which the Minister suffered to be sold for his Use. A s a Soldier, he would have thought it incumbent upon him to have called for a Court Martial to clear his Character. As a Member of Parliament, he did not think it so advisable to move for a Com- mittee to enquire into that infamous Transaction. The prudent Governor then thought it sufficient to insure his personal Safety by the Duke of Graf- son's relinquishing the Prosecution he had com- menced against Samuel Vaughan. The Bedford Party have shewn a wonderful Zeal and Forwardness to bring this great Criminal, Lord Clive, to Justice. We give them Credit for their public Spirit, and acknowledge their Abhorrence of all Peculation or anbezzlement ; nor have I any Objection to their concern for the Memory of Surajah Dowla. In the Service of such a Prince they would have sup- planted Omichund. But when they talk of Trea- ties, one would think they might recollect what Blind of Treaty the late Duke of Bedford concluded at Fontainbleau. If he did not sell the Nation him- self, this Country has too much Reason to believe both he and the Nation were sold by his Friends. Governor Johnstone makes no Secret of the Mo- tives of his Refenment against a Man, who was found by Duty to bring his most respected Brother to Punishment. Great Allowance is to be made for the natural Feelings of so near a Connection ; and as I have not the smallest Doubt but that he himsèlfwould have acted as his Brother did in In- dia, I am equally persuaded that his Brother would have defended himself with equal Zeal in England, such Men should always be provided with such Brothers. Lord North, I believe, has been hurried by the Violenceof others beyond his own Inclination and Intention. Though he concurred in the Resolu- tion, to Man in the House, of Commons was louder than himself in the Praises of Lord Clive. The Effect of this System of Conduct will probably be, that all Parties will join in running him down, until the Duke of Grafton is strong enough to drive him from his Post. If that should happen, the King will soon know what it is to commit himself and as Affairs to the Power of a single Party. Such are the People who have conspired to ruin a Man, to whom Great Britain owes all it's Acquisitions in the East, Indies, and to whom the Company have repeatedly acknowledged that they are indebted for their Existence. Yet, after all the Clamours which havèbeen so industriously raised and propagated of Plunder, Treachery, and Assassination, we find at last that the whole Strength of the Ministry has not been sufficient, even in such a House of Commons as the present, to make good a single Charge against him. His Acquittal is due to the Justice of his Cause ; but I reckon it among the Instances of his ood Fortune that he has had the Weight of Ad- ministrationçonstantly against him. Had it been otherwise, his Enemies would have said that he had saved himself by some secret Accommodation with the Ministry. Now setting Lord Clive out of the Question, and Leaving the worthy Governor Burgoyne to reflect upon the honourable Figure he makes in the Eyes of the Nation, it is very necessary to direct the At- tention of the Public to the Mode of the Com- mittee's Proceedings. To gratify a personal Ran- cour against one Man, they have violated every Principle of Law, Reason, and Justice. The warmest Friends of Government were struck with the Base- ness of their Proceeding, and refused to concur in it. Their iniquitous Plan has been defeated, and Lord Clive is beyond the Reach of their Resent- ment ; yet it is worth considering that the same Measures may be adopted hereafter to destroy any Man obnoxious to the Ministry, and that they tend to establish a Precedent, which ought to be unani- mously condemned by the Nation. The Select Committee was appointed to inquire into the Nature, State and Condition of the East- India Company's Affairs, and of the British Af- fairs in the East Indies. Instead of reporting to the House a general State of these Affairs as they exist at present; instead of enquiring into the Causes of their Decline from that flourishing Condition, to which Lord Clive's Services had raised the Com- pany; instend of forming a general Plan of Reforma- tion for the future, what have the Committee done after sitting two Sessions ? Their utmost Zeal and Diligence have been employed in searching for Ma- terials to disgrace and ruin a Man, whose eminent Services have been acknowledged, not only by his Employers, but by his Country and his King. In order to ruin his Reputation, they go back sixteen Years to prove that he deposed a Tyrant, and de- ceived a Traitor. If this Part of his Conduct was criminal, why was it not long since made the Sub- ject of Inquisition, or why have the Company and the Nation been so ready to profit by his Crimes? I presume General Burgoyne and his Accomplices thought they had a good Precedent to follow in the base and iniquitous Proceedings against Sir Walter Raleigh. In order to rob Lord Clive of his Fortune, they obtain Evidence from himself, on which they after- wards ground a criminal Charge against him. In this Instance we see the Extremity of Passion with- out the Shadow of Justice on Discretion. They charge him with receiving Presents in a Country where no Man but himself ever refused a Present. It is well known, that after the Battle of Plassey, when the Inhabitants of Muxadavad desired him to name his own Terms, and when he might have ran- somed the City for Millions, he refused to accept of a single Rupee ; yet at that Time there was no Co- venant or Prohibition on the Part of the Company against taking Presents. If he had been a greedy Man, he might have gratified his Avarice to ten Times the Amount of his present Fortune, without Disobedience of Orders, or Violation of Faith to his Employers. The Committee having at last col- lected their Evidence, let us see what life they en- deavour to make of it. By Way of laying a Foun- dation for robbing Lord Clive, General Burgoyne insidiously betrays the House into a general Resolu- tion, that all Acquisitions made under the Influence of a military Force do of Right belong to the State. Upon this extraordinary Resolution I have two Ob- sérvationsto make. The first is that, taken as a general Proportion, and supposing the equivocal Word Acquisition to refer to moveable Property, it is notoriously false, whether the Word State be un- derstood to mean the executive or the legislative Power of this Country. We have nothing to do with the Practice of the Greeks or Romans. If the general Proposition be founded on the written Law of England, let General Burgoyne produce a Sta- tute, in which this is declared to be the Sense of the Legislature. If it be founded on the Custom of England, let him shew us in what Instance the State has appropriated to its own Use the Booty, Ransom, Plunder, or Prize- Money taken by our Fleets or Armies from a foreign Enemy, or in what Instance the State has ever averted its Right to such Acqui- sitions. Our gallant Soldiers and Sailors are much indebted to a Brother Officer, who has done every Thing that depended upon him to deprive them of the Reward of their Labours, and to leave them at the Mercy of the Minister. It is to be hoped that one Day or other they will make this Deserter feel the Weight of their Resentment. Let it be admit- ted then that Lord Ciive obtained his Fortune by the. Influence of a military Force, and did not re- ceive it as a voluntary Donation from a Prince who had as good a Right to give him a Lack of Rupees as the King of Portugal had to give General Bur- goyne a Diamond : lie is not the only Man who has made a Fortune at the Expence of a foreign Enemy. If Mr. Burgoyne does not act upon Mo- tives of personal Rancour, why does he not call upon the Representatives of Lord Anion to account for the Capture of the Galleon; or on those of Lord Albemarle to refund the Prize Money and Donation at the Havannah? Has he settled with Sir William Draper, to whom the Manilla Ransom shall belong, if ever it should be recovered ? Has he kept any Account of the Distribution of Prize Money among our Soldiers and Sailors since the Beginning of the last War? He may proceed in an Inquisition of this Sort without any Hazard to his own Fortune. His Resources are of another Nature. He never was in the Post of Danger, therefore has never gained any Thing from a foreign Enemy, though he has sharedas largely as most Men in the Plunder of his own Country. My sécond Observation upon the above Proposition is, that supposing it to be gene- rally true, nothing can be more absurd than the particular Application of it to Lord Clive. With Respect to him, the State must signify the East India Company. Now the Company have not only never questioned his Right to the Fortune he enjoys, but have confirmed to him, by a specific Agreement, that Part of it which it was in their Power to have disputed with him after he had realized the rest. They çonfirmed his Jaghire, and sent him out again to India in an Employment of the highest Consi- dence, Honour, and Importance. It is now given out that all further Enquiries are to cease. If this should be the Casé, the Nation will sée beyond a Doubt what was the real Object of the Committee. The last Thing I shall take Notice of is the Bill of Regulation how depending in the House of Com- mons. The Provisions contained in this Bill not only annihilate the East India Company, but strike at the chartered Rights of every Corporation in the Kingdom. From Corporations there will be an easy Transition to Individuals. No Man's Liberty or Property is safe, when the legislative Power as- sumes to itself the whole Office of the judicial, pro- ceeds to Reformat on without proving an Abuse, and inflicts Punishment before any Crime is esta- blished. Upon what Evidence of Fact has the Par- liament a Right to assert, as they do in the Pream- ble, that Frauds and Oppressions have too long pre- vailed in the Government of the Affairs of the East India Company both at Home and Abroad ? One Man alone has been accused ; one Man alone has been tried, and that Man has been honourably ac- quitted. Yet Parliament proceeds to deprive the Company of their Charter in a Way that would be thought cruel and arbitrary, even if the Abuses they speak of had been proved, or if the Authors of those Abuses had been tried and convicted. I do not mean to say that no Abuses have existed, or that no Crimes have been committed. But let Parliament establish their Premises before they come to so important a Conclusion. It is easy to cast a general Odium without Proof on any Set of Men whatsoever. But this is not a just or parlia- mentary Way of proceeding. The Preamble of thé Bill refers generally to Facts, no one of which have been particularly proved, and the English Na- tion is disgraced in the Eyes of Europe by a general Charge, which Parliameat have not yet been able to make good in a single Instance. If great Of- fences have been committed by Individuals, it does not follow that the Punishment should fall upon the Corporation. It is not reasonable either in Law or Logic that the innocent Proprietors should be di- vested of their Rights by Parliament, because their Affairs hare been mismanaged, and their Property embezzled by their Servants. Such was the Mercy and Justice of the Romans to their Allies. " You have " been extremely ill governed by your own Princes " or Nobility, therefore it is but just and reasonable " that you should become a Province of the Re- " public." CLIVDEN.

My Case was as follows: I first had small Pimples come out on my Head, Face, Hands, and Legs; in a little Time after, my Face and Body were covered with large Blotches which discharged a Kind of watery Humour, attended with excessive Itching : I was in this Situation till about January, 1766, when I was recommended by a Gentleman, who was cured, by the Use of your Drops, of an inveterate dry Scurvy all over his Body. 1 am now in perfect Health, and am continually praying for the Welfare of the Author of so valuable a Medicine.

In the Course of many Years Practice, innumerable, lnstances have indisputably proved the strengthening and cordial Effects of this Medicine in all Weaknesses, Debili- ties & c. whether natural or acquired by that Beinous Vice Self- pollution, too early or excessive Venery, Mercurial Courses, and Nervous Complaints in general ; also those secret Infirmities that attack Persons advancing in Years are by it removed ; and the natural Powers of the whole vital System are nourished, ccmforted, and prolonged. The Causes of Impotency in one Sex, and Barrenness in the other, have been eradicated by this Medicine. The great BOERHAAVE says, " From an ill- cured Pox, and imprudent Venery, arise Pains in the Head or Limbs, Eruptions, Gleets, Weakness of the whole Frame, Dimness of Sight, with a Tribe of Nervous Complaints, which generally terminate in a Consumption, For a full Account read the DOCTOR'S New Treatise, just published, Price 1s. 6d. the 8th Edition.

BURROWS, M. D. Sole Patentee. THIS Medicine is authenticated, by theTesti- mon y of Persons ot Eminence, as efficacious in all SCORBUTIC CASES, and every Degree of a CERTAIN DIS- ORDER, for which the Public are referred to the Daily Pa- pers, and a Dissertation on its Nature and Effects. WILLIAM CHAPMAN, Cabinet- maker, Was recom- mended to the Care of Dr. Burrows, by Mr. M Kinnow, Uphosterer, the Corner of Lincoln's Inn Fields ( with whom be had formerly worked) having laboured under a Venereal Compliat, highly complicated with the Scurvy, upwards of six Years. His Body was covered with Pustules of a putrid Nature. There was a large soetid Ulcer on the Right Leg, and a Fistula in the Perineum, through which the Urine passed, and gave him exquisite Pain He had been twice salivated without Effect, notwithstanding which dreadful Symptoms the Doctor was encouraged by former Success in themostdangerous Cases to put him under a Course of his Vegetable Syrup. In the Space of about seven Weeks the Ulcer in tbe Leg was cured ; at the End of the two Months all the putrid Eruptions disap- peared, and in fourteen Weeks the Fistula was healed ; the Urine passed through the natural Channel, and he has not since had the least Complaint. This Patient was visited, at the Request of Dr. Burrows, by two Gentlemen of the Faculty, during the Course, who, on Application, will testify the same. The Vegetable Syrup is appointed to be sold in Worcester by H . Berrow, at 10s. 6d, a Bottle. By His Majesty's Letters Patent, ( Granted to W ALT E R LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) is recommended the Justly Famous PILL, called in the Patent, PILULA SALUTARIA And there pronounced to be a Cure for the VENEREAL DISEASE, SCURVY, and RHEUMATISM. IN fifteen or eighteen Days it generally cures those cruel Disorders, and where it fails of perfectly restoring Health in that Time, the Patient has the happy Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being restored , let the De- gree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the complaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter, which they soon dislodge and expell. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Re- storer, by taking only eight single Pills ( as instructed by the Direction Bilis) once or twice a Year. In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligition to them, that whatever he promised himself from them they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and uni- versal Fame. These Pills are most worthy a place in the Ca- binet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the more so, for that they require no Confinement, nor Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Climates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation fails. Sold by the Patentee ( in Boxes cf 2s. 6d. each) at his House No. 16, Bride Lane, Fleet Street; who effectually cures Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses: Also sold by Ap- pointment by Mr. Hart, Druggist, in Wolverhampton, Aris and Co.
