THURSDAY, September 9, 1773. Price Two- pence Halfpenny Numb. 4133 Saturday's and Sunday's Posts FOREIGN affairs. Stockholm, July 27. THE King has resolved to encrease the Punishment which for- merly inflicted by the Laws on such Advocates as engaged Pleaders to undertake unjust and ruinous Causes. Such Persons heretofore were only repri- manded ; but for the future those who shall by such Practices violate the Honour of their Profes- sion, are to receive corporal Punishment. Warsaw, Aug. 11. The Negotiation between the Prussians and the City of Dantzic'is farther from being concluded than we had imagined. The Prussians, on their Side, insist upon always having a Guard of fifty Men at the Port called Fahrwasser, with an Exemption from all Duties for the Passage of their Merchandizes, and a Duty of 300,000 Crowns per Annum for the Revenues of the Port: Or, if the City is not willing to be subject to this Duty, Prussian Cashiers shall be placed at the Port, authorised to receive, on ac- count of the King, the fifth Part of the whole Revenue. The City, on the contrary, demands the unli- mited Freedom of its own Port, of its Commerce on the Vistula, and of the Ecclesiastical Funds within its Territory, and is willing to redeem all these Things by a Sum paid down once for all. The Citizens wait with Impatience the Issue of these Negotiations; but they do not appear dis- posed to abate any Thing of the above Terms. Rome, Aug. 9. The Fate of the Jesuits is at length decided. The Pope has published a Bull, which suppresses that Order. In this Bull his Ho- liness reproaches them not only with having given Cause for Discontent to the Court of Rome, and to the other Orders, College?, Universities, Bishops, and Priests, but also that they have irritated the Kings of France, Spain, Portugal, and the Two Sicilies, to such a Degree as to cause those Princes to drive them out of their respective Dominions. To those who are old and infirm, Pensions are to be granted according to their Necessities, and they are to remain in their Convents, under the In- spection of such Bishops and Abbes as shall be ap- pointed ; but they are not to appear in the Habit of their Order, nor be allowed to preach or receive Confessions. Of the younger ones, those who have taken only one Vow are permitted to em- brace any other Calling, and are allowed to marry; and those who have taken the last Vow are to be permitted to enter into any other Order, under certain Restrictions. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Aug. 28. The following Facts lately happened in the Neighbourhood of Greenock: A Woman was proclaimed in Church for Mar- riage on Sunday, delivered of a Child on Monday, which died on Tuesday, was buried on Wednes- day, and the Mother was legally married on Thursday. COUNTRY NEWS. Lewes, Aug. 30. This Evening will be exe- cuted at Horsham, the three following Convicts, viz. Ambrose Cannon, for being present, aiding, and abetting Thomas Green, in the wilful Mur- der of Thomas Cole ; Richard Bridger, for break- ing open the House of Samuel Ayling of Chi- chester, and stealing 1ool. a Watch, & c. and Wm. Stema, for a Highway Robbery.— Cannon's Case is truly pitiable, as the Crime was committed near 16 Years ago, during his Apprenticeship to the above Green, by whose Direction he acted. They both went Abroad ; but Cannon, after being ab- sent 13 Years, returned about three Years since, setttled at Hastings by another Name, married, and has three Children, whom, with his Wife, he has constantly maintained in Credit by his Industry. Shrewsbury, Sept. 4. On Saturday last Edward Rogers was executed here, pursuant to his Sen- tence, for robbing and wounding Mr. Francis Nevett, of Upton Magna, in this County. His whole Behaviour from the Time of his receiving Sentence was very unbecoming a Person in his unhappy Situation; an Instance of which he shewed on the Morning of his Execution, viz. a Stranger going to see him, whom he at full Sight thought was his Prosecutor ( whom he had so much injured) instead of begging Pardon, as he ought to have done, took up a large Pair of Tongs, with a Design to knock him down ; but finding his Mistake, told the Visitor " it was well for him he was not Nevett, as he should have killed him on the Spot."— When the fatal Hour drew near, his Spirits funk, and he wept much. As he was going in the Cart to the Gallows, he took his Leave of a great Number of Persons with a forced Chearfulness. At the Place of Execution he joined with the Clergyman in Prayer, after which he tied the Halter on the Gallows himself, four Times successively before he could bring it to a proper Length : He then addressed himself, in a few Words, to the young Men present, ad- vising them not to have too bold a Spirit, as that was the Cause of his coming to such an End. He then seemed very devout in Secret for about one Minute ( the Halter being fixed) and then gave the Signal for the Cart to be drawn away, by throwing a Posey he had in his Hand quite over she Gallows. He was in the 25th Year of his Age, acknowledged be was a Deserter from the he had 170l. hid in a certain Place, in orderto in- duce them to supply him with Cash, at the same Time promising them he would inform them where it was, that they might be amply rewarded for their Kindness to him. LONDON, Friday, Sept. 3. Some very important Matters are on the Carpet; the Affairs of the Powers on the Continent are coming to a Crisis, and it seems as if our Court apprehended it may be a disagreeable one. All the foreign Governors are ordered to their Stations, and are preparing to depart, and the Ambassador to France is in Motion. It is confidently reported at Paris that the Spa- nards have declared to the French Court their absolute Intentions afflicting the Turks, even in case that Court should refuse their Concurrence. Within this Week, we are told, Orders have been sent to our Ambassadors now resident at all the European Courts, to spare no Pains or Ex- pences to discover every Transaction that may be likely to affect Great- Britain, and to send the ear- liest Intelligence of it here. It is an absolute Fact, and may be depended on, that the Minister will make no Opposition this Year in the City Business, but reserve his Strength and Influence for the general Election Our great and wife Ministers are at length, it is said, brought to their Senses; the warm Oppo- sition their Measures have met with on the other Side the Water, compelling them to acknowledge that they have strained the Bow beyond their ori- ginal Intention. They write from Dublin, that some noble Per- sonages are expected to embark there for England about the Middle of the Month, in order to pre- sent a Petition to his Majesty, which has already been signed by above 700 respectable Persons. It is confidently asserted, that Letters of Recall were last Week sent of privately to Governor Hutchinson. It is said that the Post of Captain General of the Army will be bestowed on the Prince of Wales, as soon as his Royal Highness comes of Age. An additional Duty will be laid next Sessions on all Foreign China, as well European as from the East Indies, in order to encourage our own Manufacture, which is now arrived at great Perfection. We hear than an additional Duty, almost amounting to a Prohibition, will be laid on French Wines of all Kinds imported into this Kingdom. The late Lord Lyttelton was one of the last re- maining Names on the List of Noble English Au- thors, and from the apparent Taste for Frivolity and Dissipation, among the present Race of Lordlings, there is great Reason to fear that, in the Course of a few Years, Genius will be totally extinct among that Rank of Men. A Correspondent most humbly submits it to his Majesty's Wisdom, whether the frequent Par- dons granted to Housebreakers may not be one great Cause of the Increase of that Crime, which is now in Practice beyond all former Example at this Season of the Year. Priests of the Romish Church from foreign Se- minaries represent the English Vineyard as un- worthy of Cultivation : The Methodist Preachers are charged with spoiling the Mission. When Pope Innocent desired the Marquis of Carpio, Viceroy of Naples, to furnish him with thirty thousand Head of Swine, the Marquis an- swered him, That for his Swine he could not spare them, but if his Holiness had Occasion for thirty thousand Lawyers they were at his Service. One of the Caribbs, on being treated with great Contempt, and called Savage, by a spruce young Officer, cried out, " I know of no other Savages but the Europeans, who are Strangers to our Customs, as well as our Virtues, and who, because they are Slaves themselves, wish to enslave Mankind." On Monday last his Majesty's armed Cutter, the Denbigh, was lost on the Goodwin Sands as she was giving Chace to a Smuggler, who was lost also, and both their Crews perished. They write from Lisle, that a young Lady of immense Fortune has just escaped from a Convent there with her Consessor. Yesterday Morning a Duel was fought near Hyde Park, between R. S. B. of N n Street, Esq; who lately married the celebrated Miss Kennedy, and a Mr. B. of the City ; the Quar- rel arose from the latter making too free with Mrs. B's Character, and after the Discharge of a Brace of Pistols each, the latter received, a slight Contusion on the Left Arm, but by the Interpo- sition of the Seconds the Affair was happily set- tled, and they afterwards breakfasted together. A few Days since a French Cook was engaged for three Years certain, at the Family of an Eng- lish Nobleman, near Grosvenor- Square, at 200l. per Annum. Monday a Man who was convicted for Perjury in Swearing himself worth 2ool. in order to bail a Gentleman, stood on the Pillory the Corner of Fetter- lane, Fleet- Street. He is to be transported for seven Years. On Wednesday Night a Fire was discovered in the Farm Yard of Mr. Powdon, at Chiphurst, near Maidenhead, Berks, which burnt with such Violence, that seven or eight Ricks of hew Wheat, Barley, Oats, and Peas, were in a shortTime con- sumed. The Fire spread to the Barn, which was also full of Wheat and Pease, and destroyed the Whole. It is generally supposed the ago, tendered the Collector One Hundred Gui- neas, seventy- four of which only being receivable under his Instructions, the rest were returned as unlawfully diminished.— As they were all coined in the last Century, the Tradesman absolutely re- fused to exchange them, and said that they ap- peared to him, to be deficient in Weight, no otherwise than by " reasonable Wear." A Prose- cution is likely to be commenced for the Remain der of the Duty, and the Tradesman is determined to stand a legal Issue, pro Bono Publico ; for he looks upon the Orders of the Treasury to be no more valid in this Case, than a Resolution of a Com- pany of drunken Porters in fixing the Standard for a Pot of Beer. Friday last, at Yeovil Market, new Wheat sold at 6s. per Bushel, Winchester Measure. To the LADIES. AS the Reputation of many a Lady has been irrecoverably lost, and numerous other ill Consequences have frequently attended the Want of a proper convenient Retreat in the latter Months of Pregnancy, and Lying- in; to prevent which, and preserve Peace in Families, such a Place is now offered in the House of an experienced Sur- geon and Man- Midwife, pleasantly situated within an easy Day's Ride of the Cities of Worcester and Gloucester, where Ladies may be genteely accommo- dated daring their Lying- in, and for any Length of Time before. The Terms will be made agreeable to their respective Circumstances. The Honor and Secresy of the Surgeon may be relied on; and the Ladies may depend upon being treated with the ut- most Care, Tenderness, Humanity, and Friendship. The Apartments are spacious and airy, and so pe- culiarly adapted for the Purpose, that, with the great Precaution which is used, a Lady, if she was ever so near a Neighbour, might depend upon Lying- in here full as private and secret as she pos- sibly could at an hundred Miles from Home. The Person of the Lady need not be known by Servant or any other Attendant; and, if required, may be kept a Secret even from the Surgeon himself. Further Particulars may be known by directing a Line to J. J. to be left with the Printer of this Journal. Worcester, Sept. 1, 1773. E.

It is reported, that at the next Meeting of the Parliament, a Bill will be brought in for lay- a Tax on all the Land in that Kingdom, The Bank of England are realizing a pretty may, by the Indulgence they grant to the Pub in taking their Portugal Money, & c. at so h per Ounce.

Lord Dartmouth publicly condemns the ini- tous Correspondence of the American Gover- nors, and makes no Scruple of declaring that Duplicity and Treachery of the People in wer has been the Source of all the Dissentions such have happened in America, Lord Dartmouth, as a religious and conscien- ous Man, is for hearing the intended Complaint the Bustonians against Governor Hutchinson ; File the Ministry seem to think that spirited Measures, and a total Disregard to their Murmurs the best Policy. A Grant of Lands in West Florida, we hear, now soliciting for an eminent Banker, whose Failure a few Months since made so much Noise. By the last Accounts from Boston in New Eng- land, the Fact is said to be confirmed, that the led R.......... ( who was convicted and con- mned, and afterwards pardoned, for a most Barbarous and premeditated Murder) is appointed the Boston Commissioners to be an Officer of a Customs at Philadelphia, with an extra Al- lowance of a Guinea per Week Pocket Money. Our Advices tell us, that the Spanish Minister Madrid is eager for a War with England, but we cannot take the Field without France in Con- nction. It is long since the Spaniards have re aited themselves from the Ravages of the last War, by Means of their Gold Mines in Mexico, eru, and Chili; but the French have no such Resources. Advice is just received that a Spanish Frigate as taken a Ship belonging to New York, bound Jamaica, and carried her into Hispaniola, Where they sold her Cargo, sent the Crew to Ja- maica, and then sailed off with the Vessel. A Correspondent in the Neighbourhood of killy, in the County of Corke, sends us the following Particulars of the Murder of an old Woman and her Daughter. That one Ropnane, young Man, had courted the young Woman about four Months ago, and had often since been in her Company ; but hiving about three Weeks ago called at the House of the old Woman ( which was on the Mountain Road leading from Castle yons to Castlemartyr) told the Girl that he had procured a Priest to marry them, who was then waiting for that Purpose with a Friend, in a par- ticular Part of the Mountain, about a Mile from thence; which plausible Story induced the un- happy Victim to accompany him, when having preached the Place, he killed her by several Stabs of his Knife, then covered her Body with Turf, which he made up in a large Stack ; having then returned and found the poor Woman alone, he also put her to Death, as is supposed, in the same Manner, and then burned her Remains, by setting the House on Fire. The Body of the young Wo- man had lain near a Fortnight before discovered in the Turf; and Its being then found out was giving to a Bull, who had been grazing there, attempting several Times to throw down the Stack with his Horns, and though often on that Day prevented by Men who were saving Turf conti- guous thereto, yet he got to the Turf Stack again, and pulled out a Piece of some of the young Wo- rn;' s Cloaths on his Horns, which caused the Discovery. The Murderer is made off.— The young Woman, it is said, was with Child by him. The 18. ult. one of the most violent Thunder Storms happened in the Province of Bretagne, in France, that ever was known there. It continued raining in Torrents the whole Day, but at Mid- night the Element seemed in one continued Blaze, with Thunder without Intermission. Several Notwithstanding all that is said about the Pre mier thinking his Place very irksome, it may be depended upon that he is Proof against all his Adversaries, as being convinced of the Rectitude of his Conduct, and that he never expresses any Dislike to continue in Office as long as his Master thinks proper. As her Majesty advance in her Pregnancy, her Health is better, and her Physicians have positively given it as their Opinion that she is in no Danger. On Monday they began to pick Hops about Tunbridge and Sevenoaks, as also about Sun- dridge, Brasted, Westerham, & c. where they turn out much better than they were expected a short Time since. On Tuesday and Wednesday several Vessels laden with new Wheat arrived in the River, and, according to the Samples brought to the Mansion House, it is exceeding fine. Several Dispatches, said to be respecting the Riots in Dublin, have within these few Days been sent off to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. The following was the Occasion of the Dispute between Captain Scawen and Mr. Fitzgerald, which they are gone to decide with Pistols at Lisle in Flanders: A Clergyman, whose Name is Bate, was at Vauxhall with Mrs. Hartley the Actress, and some other Company. Whilst they were at Supper Mr. F d, an Irishman, a Mr. C — ts, of the Guards, and two other Macaronies, stood staring and looking through Glasses, at Mrs. Hartley. Mr. Bate, on leaving the Box, said ( loud enough to be heard) they were a Set of im- pertinent Puppies, upon which Mr. C — ts stept after him and gave him a Challenge. They met the next Day at the Turk's Head Coffee- House, and just as they were going to decide the Matter, Mr. F d, who had an Irish Footman, a re- markable Bruiser, came in, and brought his Footman, dressed as an Officer, a Capt. Miles, who pretended that he also had been insulted by Mr. Bate, and insisted upon boxing him. Mr. Bate said he had another Affair upon his Hands to be previously decided; however, that being compromised, he and Capt. Miles agreed to en- gage. In the first Onset Mr. Bate closed both the Captain's Peepers, and then gave him a despe- rate Drubbing. Mr. Bate's Conduct was univer- sally approved by the Town, and when the Cheat the Macaronies had played him came to be known, they were as universally censured. Capt. Scawen, in giving his Opinion of this Matter to one B. an Ensign of the Guards, blamed F d for setting up his Footman in the Character of an Of- ficer. Mr. B. went and related the Conversation to Mr. F d, who thereupon sent a Challenge to Capt. S n. The Ensign in the Guards, who was the Cause of the unhappy Quarrel between Capt. Scawen and Mr. Fitzgerald, is obliged to retire from the Army, as no Officer will speak to him. A Bailiff, who had tried almost every Expedi ent to arrest a Quaker, without Success, resolved to adopt the Habit and Manner of one, in Hopes of catching the primitive Christian. In this Disguise he knocked at Amminadab's Door, and enquired if he was at Home; the House- keeper replied Yes. " Can I see him ?" Walk in, Friend, ( says she) and He shall see THEE. The Bailiff, consident of Success, walked in, and after waiting near an Hour, he rang a Bell, and on the Housekeeper's appearing, he said, thou promised me I should see Friend Amminadab. No Friend, ( answered the Female Quaker) I pro- mised thee no such Thing ; I promised He should see THEe ; he has seen the, and he does not like thee. Upon which Catchpole vented his Passion in Oaths and Imprecations, and retired not a little vexed at the Disappointment. The Case of a General Officer, lately arrested for a large Sam, reminds a Correspondent that he has heard that there is a very ancient Statute yet unrepealed, which ordains that all Sheriffs' Officers shall wear Coats of various Colours, that the Debtor, when he sees the Officer, may have a Chance of escaping till he can pay the Debt. Our Correspondent wishes to be informed if such a Law really exists, as it might, if enforced, save many a wretched Family from total Ruin. Lord Lyttelton retained the full Vigour of his Senses till the latest Moment. Previous, however, to his Exit, he had almost incessant convulsive Dozes, out of which he waked in the most vio- lent Agonies, repeatedly exclaiming, " I forgive him ! I forgive him !" — Lord Valentia was pre- sent at the mournful Scene, whose Account thereof places, if possible, in a higher Light, the Forti- tude, Abilities, and Piety of this most illustrious Character. There is now in this Metropolis a Cornfactor who lately had in his Possession 40,000 Quarters of Wheat, which he suffered to be spoiled rather than sell it under his own exorbitant Price, and now employs Carts towards Plaistow, Bromley, . and Villages adjacent, to sell it for 2s, a Bushel to seed Swine. A Correspondent says, so many Monopolizers, Forestallers, and Engrossers, are Tenants, or De- pendants, to the Senate, . Upper or Lower, that they may depend for ever on Impunity. By some Letters lately received from Ports- mouth we are informed, that no Person whatever is permitted to go on board any of the Ships in the Harbour, without first obtaining Leave - of the Commissioner. This first Order was occasioned by two French Noblemen being admitted on board the Britannia, the finest first- rate Ship in the Navy, who took an Account of her Dimen- sions, Weight of Metal, & c. During the Absence of a Gentleman who lives at No. 3, Brick- Court, in the Temple, who went on one of the late Circuits with the Judges, a Journeyman Barber who used to shave him, got. into his Chambers, sold his Cloaths and Furniture, and robbed the Apartments of a very large Sum of Money. The Offender was traced as far as Glamorganshire, where he was apprehended, and brought to London for Examination : 179 Guineas were found in his Possession.

LONDON, Tuesday, Sept. 7. A very interesting Letter is said to have been received by his M — y from a great Northern Po- tentate in his own Hand- writing, concerning the present Troubles on the Continent, which will be laid before the Privy Council. We hear that the Council is at present a little divided. In Case of the Continental Affairs coming to Extremities ( which every Day seems actually to approach) it has been disputed, whe- ther Great Britain ought to interfere in the War between the Porte and Russia. A few think it unavoidable; but a Majority ( with the Premier at their Head) are vehement in exclaiming against the Danger of it, and maintaining that there can be no Necessity for it. The Council is in these Days Very thin. The Lords of Trade have received Orders to attend the Privy Council To- morrow at St. James's, with the Boston Papers. It is talked of that an Order of Privy Council will soon be issued for rendering Portugal Money current again. We are told that the incessant Migrations, from the several Parts of his Majesty's Dominions, to America, have at length alarmed those only who have in their Hands the Power of Redress. The Northern Province of Ireland, with Part of the Western, are deeply drained, and the Highlands of Scotland are depopulated. In Consideration of these Evils, we hear the Affair will be laid be- fore Parliament, and some Remedy agreed on. The Monopolization of Farms, great Increase of Rents, & c. have not operated upon the Coun- try People of England as they have done in the neighbouring Kingdoms. The People, when they are unhoused here, do not go to America, but turn Rubers and Thieves. No Migrations have yet taken Place from England to the Colo- nies, except those which are sent thither from the Old Bailey. Most of our Trades and Manufactures are over- run with Journeymen and Apprentices, for a Cor- respondent assures us he has been informed from good Authority, that in the Hat- making Business only, there are Hands enough to fabricate as many Hats in one Week as the three Kingdoms can dis- pense with the wearing of for seven Years. At a numerous Meeting of the Trade Yesterday at Tallow- chandlers Hall, the following Resolu- tions were agreed to, viz. " That there is at this Time a much greater Quantity of Tallow than has been for many Years past, and that the Price is now, and has been for some Months back, kept up by a few monopolizing Individuals.— That the Price of Candles do fall to 8s. per Dozen on Wednesday the 8th Instant.— It is therefore recommended to the Public, not to order in any Stock of Candles for the Winter, as, from the great Increase of Tallow, they must soon become cheaper." There are now at least 4000 Hogsheads of Tallow arrived from Russia, and more coming in every Day. Yesterday Morning several Vessels laden with Wheat of this Year's Growth arrived in the River, their Freight is judged to be as fine bodied Grain as was ever seen ; within these few Days there have been near twenty Sail arrived in the River full of Wheat, which it is hoped will be a Means of reducing the Price of Bread. The Receipts at the Custom- House, on Ac- count of the very frist Duty observed by the Re- venue Officers in the River, & c. has exceeded the usual Collection more than 3oo. oo0l. last Year. There are above 200 Informations exhibited before the Commissioners of the Excise against Persons retailing spirituous Liquors without Li- cence. It is reported that a Process has been discovered for making Beer without Malt ; and that the Inventor ( an eminent Chymist of this City) has laid Proposals on the Subject before the Govern- ment, who have accepted it very graciously. The Hon. Mr. Greville, Brother of the Earl of Warwick, stands a Candidate to represent the Town of Warwick in Parliament, in the room of his Brother, and it is, thought he will be The late Lord Lyttelton was born at Seven Months; and the Midwife supposing the Infant dead, threw him into the Cradle ; and it was not till some Time after that he engaged the Atten- tion of one of the Attendants by shewing Signs of Life, Thus was the World likely to have been deprived of a Character that reflected Ho- nour on Humanity. His Lordship was always of a tender Constitution, and it was by the greatest Regularity and Sobriety that his Life was preserved to the Age of 64, more especially if we consider the Distress of his Mind for some Time past. During his last Illness he was several Days insensible: However, a few Hours before his Death he recovered the entire Use of all his Fa- culties. His Fortitude, Resignation, and Piety were that of a good Man and a Christian. He particularly desired that his Blessing and Forgiveness might be delivered to his Son. Of his Daugh- ter in Law ( now Lady Lyttelton) he took the most affectionate Leave, recommending to her in the strongest Terms, that she would never forget her Duty to God ; for at that Moment he would not exchange the pleasing Consolation of a good Con- fidence for the Possessions of the Universe. All his Domesticks, even the lowest, were called up to him, and received his Blessing ; at the same Time were added his Thanks for their Services. The Writer of this wishes a more able Pen would do further Justice to so distinguished a Character. He can only add, that as a Clinician, a Gentle- man, and a Man of Learning, he was an Honour to his Country, and has left an Example for the Nobility of this and future Ages. The following is a true Account of the Duel fought between Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. Scawen, which we have the Authority of one of the Seconds to insert, and which he has authenticated with his Name:— When the Gentlemen came to the Ground, which was in the Queen's Country, between Pont- au- Tressin and Tournay, Mr. Fitzgerald loaded his Pistols ; and Mr. Nugent, Mr. Scawen's Se- cond, assisted Mr. Scawen to load his. It was agreed that the Distance should be ten Steps, which was measured by the Seconds, and the Choice of Places determined by throwing up a Piece of Money, by which it sell on Mr. Scawen. The Principals then took their Ground, and the Seconds retired. Mr. Scawen asked Mr. Fitz- gerald if he would fire full, which he accepted, and immediately discharged his Pistol, and the Ball passed under Mr. Scawen's Chin ; Mr. Scawen then presented and levelled his Pistol; and Mr. Fitzgerald, in bringing his second Pistol to a Le- vel accidentally discharged it before Mr. Scawen had fired his first; upon which Mr. Scawen said, " Mr. Fitzgerald, you have fired your second Pistol !" To which Mr. Fitzgerald replied, " it is true, Sir; but I assure you it was merely acci- dental, and I ask your Pardon for it ;" and then advancing a Pace or two towards Mr. Scawen, Mr. Fitzgerald added, " you have both your Pistols, Sir, I desire you will fire them, and we will both load again:" Mr. Scawen then said, " Sir, it makes no Difference — I am glad it happened so ;" and immediately came up to Mr. Fitzgerald, and addressing himself to him, told him, " if he had said any Thing disrespectful against him, it must be when he was disordered with Liquor, and he was extremely sorry for it And taking a Cane out of one of the Surgeon's Hands, he delivered it to Mr. Fitzgerald, who very lightly laid it on Mr. Scawen's Shoulder ; and afterwards told Mr. Scawen, " that he was very sorry for what he had said to him, as he had now behaved like a Gen tleman." The Gentlemen then shook Hands, went and spent the Evening together, and parted perfectly reconciled. CHARLES THOMAS FAGAN. The Dispute between Capt. Scawen and Mr. Fitzgerald ( says a Morning Paper) has turned out of no little Advantage to one of the Principals. Capt. S —, whose Father, just before his Departure for the Continent, directed him to lay before him a State of his Debts, which were very consider- able, and which the old Gentleman honourably discharged on Friday last. The Lady of Mr. F. it is said, was so much affected from a late Dispute, that she has for these five Days past been so violently afflicted with Hysteric Fits that her Life is despaired of. We are assured, that on the Departure of the Parties from hence to fight a Duel in Flanders, a great Personage declared, that in Case one of them sell, he would not on any Account pardon the Survivor. Yesterday the Royal Regiment of Artillery had a great Field Day on Woolwich Common, after which several Experiments were made on Grape Shot, one of which was of a most extraordinary Nature, from a Gun invented by General Desa- guliers, which was fired against a long Target of Wood ; it kept a constant Firing whilst the Regi- ment marched 150 Yards, in which Time it put 800 Shot through the Target at the Distance of 400 Yards, having fired 24 Times in a Minute. This is justly looked upon as the greatest Improve- ment ever made in Cannon since their first Inven- tion ; but if is most earnestly wished it may be kept from the Knowledge of other Nations. On Saturday the ingenious Mr. Harrison, In- ventor of the Time- piece for finding out the Longi- tude, received the last Payment of the 2o, oool. for his Discovery ; the Sum paid him was 9585l. By a Vessel from Jamaica we have Advice, that the regular Troops in the Island of Hispa- niola have had several Engagements with the In habitants, in which they generally came off with the worst, and that every Thing was in the greatest Disorder and Confusion. Advice was this Day received, that a Turkish and Spanish Man of War have had an Engagement in the Mediterranean ; and after a Contest of six Glasses, Yard Arm and Yard Arm, wherein two- thirds of the Spaniards were killed, the Spaniard was funk. The Remainder of her Crew were taken up by the Russians. I observed respecting them. The Troops of Electorate axe all embodied, and fresh Recr are constantly raising. The fortified Places, b in the Electorate and in Bremen and Verdun, paid a very strict Attention to; and, on Whole, every Measure lately taken seems to in- dicate Hanover expects a Rupture with for Power of the North." Letter from Smyrna, July 26. " We have been just on the Point of suffering one of the most terrible Calamities that can imagined. On the 18th Instant, about 6oTu conspired to assassinate, the next Day, being Sun day, all the Greeks they could find in Church then set Fire to different Quarters of the City and, to profit by the Disorder which su a Disaster would Cause, by carrying off b the Effects of the inhabitants, and massacreing who should offer to oppose them. Happily, how- ever, this Affair was discovered on the Evening before it was to have been put in Execution. T Muselim, or Supreme Judge, has seized on greatest Part of the Conspirators, some of What have been privately put to Death, others exist and the Remainder are in close Confinement." This Morning about four o'Clock, a Fire brought out in the Cooperage belonging to the Brewhouse of Mess. Whitbread and Co. in Chiswell- Street which entirely consumed the same before it can be got under. Thursday died Upon the Road to Norwich, a Visit to his Nephew, by the bleeding of Nose, Thomas Preston; Esq; one of the Common council of Cheap Ward.

To prevent great Inconvenies and Confusion from receiving Money at Doors, it is particularly desired that all Person would come provided with Tickets, which are be had of Mr. Lewis, Bookseller; Mr. Hobbison Glover; and of Mr. Knight, Glover. On Friday last John Jeens, for robbing House of Mr. Harris, of Evesham, was execute at our County Gallows. His Behaviour was well- becoming a Person in his melancholy Situa- tion. He read all the Way to the Place of Exe- cution, and made Use of Spectacles. At Kidderminster Fair on Saturday last, the was the greatest Quantity of Cheese that has be known for many Years, though but a small Pof it was brought into the Fair, the rest be kept up in the Inns or private Houses ; by wh iniquitous Scheme, the Price in the Beginning the Fair was from 28s. to 30s. for the best Chee and Two- meal from 25s. to 27s.; but in the Af- ternoon the best was sold at 24s. and the second Sort at 24s. and many Waggon Loads were car- ried back unsold. Pity it is that the Clerk every Market does not compel all Persons bring their Commodities to open View, that Buyers may see how bountifully our kind Cr has provided for the miserable Poor. A few Days since was married, at the Pa Church of Upton Warren, in this County, Henry Lad bury, an opulent Farmer and Master at Feckenham, to Miss Wight, of the the PEOPLE of ENGLAND. THE General Election approaches fast. The Canvass is already begun. Hear no Man who to bribe you;— if he offers himself a Candi- reject hi m with Scorn, for he will fell you in same Manner that he bought you. What must one think of a Man who advertiseth in the News- papers, that he wants to serve his Country, and he begins with Bribery, and goes on with pation? When, instead of supporting their interest, begins with ruining their Morals; and u ching their Minds / If Englishmen have any he Spirit of their Sires in them, they will ra- pay the Expences of their Representation to a honest Man, than accept of a roguish Volup- y who offers to serve them for Naught. Would not be right for all the Electors in England to do the Free Burgesses of Newcastle upon Tyne have e ? They have entered into an Agreement to no Meat nor Drink, to touch no Money which I be offered them at the next General Election. All the Counties, Cities, and Corporations in ain shall think proper to do this, it will shew they are virtuous Lovers of Liberty. Choose no Man who will not promise upon Oath, seal with his Writing, that he will never dis- any Point in which the Welfare of the Nation concerned, without first consulting his Constitu- , and that he will never vote against their Opi- : That he will earnestly promote a Bill for tri- ial Parliaments, and never pass a Money Bill this is passed : That he will use his utmost Endea- vaours to have all Tensions reduced, and all Court sioners excluded from any Share in the Legisla- tive; That no Officers in the Army shall sit in the use of Commons; and that the standing Army will be reduced. s independent Freeholders of Britain, consider Character of the Person you make Choice of to present you in the next Parliament: Enquire whe- ther or not he was a Courtier in the last Parliament ? ether he voted for General Warrants, or joined h the House in conforming to Col. Luttrel, as member for Middlesex ? If any such Persons soli- your Votes, send them about their Business, and around them with a Mark of Contempt. Tell them y once betrayed this Country, and can never more trusted." If you find Gentlemen of Probity, who have shewed a steady Attachment to your Interests, and a real Love to their Country, elect them freely, without Expence ; shew them that you love Virtue d despise Corruption ; that you regard and love earnest Men, but detect those Villains who can de- seperately rob their Country, and betray their Con- stituents. Consider that Riches is not the only Qua- lification of a Member of Parliament; — Wisdom d Honesty are also necessary. Nothing can be more absurd than the Practice of those Counties d Boroughs who elect the most wealthy, instead the wifest Men: By this Means they fill the na- tional Senate with Men not removed many Degrees m the most stupid Animals. Such ignorant Mortals may be capable to sit upon a Seat, and fill a Blank in the House of Commons,— say Yes or no, as they are desired; but are they capable of lodging of your Interests, or are they qualified to propose of your Money ? An East- India Nabob, by the Dint of the Sword, through the Influence of some corrupt Passion, y acquire a Mountain of Specie, and almost a ation of Land, by which he shall be able to bribe Thousands who are destitute of Virtue : But do his iches make him wife, or his Lands make him rtuous ? Will not the same Person who robbed d plundered the innocent Indians, starved Thou- sands to Death, remain the same Villain when he is promoted to the highest Stations of Honour in his own Country ? My Countrymen be not taken with the Glare and Splendor of Wealth ; seek after the tuous Man ; for in him alone you can place Con- fidence. Can you suppose that there is either Wisdom or Honour in that Man, who first attacks our Morals, on Purpose to ruin your Interest ? Can Gluttons and Drunkards be good Men, or sit take Care of the Concerns of the Public? If you would not trust your Money or Effects to a Dishonest Person, how do you think it proper to must all that is dear to Men, in the Hands of those who are known to be Thieves, whose Conduct has seen one constant Round of public Villainy, ag- ravated by many attrocious Circumstances ? If over yo u trust such Men again, or commit your National Concerns into the Hands of Men who have already betrayed you, you deserve to be Slaves. Now is the Time to begin to consider of these Things, before an Election approacheth. Let Vir- tue be cultivated in all Places, and the Practice of Bribery stigmatized every where. Try whether Virtue and Liberty will not make a more con- icuous Figure than ever Wilkes and Liberty did. Mr. Wilkes deserves Praise for what he has done, but you seem to have given him up. Give not up those Ideas of Liberty which he was the Means of suggesting to you, but study every lawful Method whereby a Sense of Freedom may be kept died on the Mind of every free Briton.

Sole Patentee, THIS Medicine is authenticated, by the Testi- mony of Persons of 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, Upbolsterer, the Corner of " Lincoln's Inn Fields ( with whom be bad formerly worked) having laboured under a Venereal Complaint, highly complicated with the Scurvy, upwards off six Years. His Body was covered with Pustules of a putrid Nature. There was a large foetid Ulcer on the Right Leg , and a Fistula in the Perinaum, 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 the most dangerous Cases to put him under a Course of his Vegetable Syrup. In the Space of about seven Weeks the Ulcer in the Leg was cured, at the End of the two Months all the putrid Eruptions disap- pered, and in fourteen Weeks the Fistula was healed ; the Urine passed through the natural Channel, and he has not since bad 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.
