Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, September 30, 1773. Numb. 413 Saturday's and Sunday's Posts SCOTLAND. Extract of a Letter from Maryburgh, dated September 4. THE 1st ult. failed from this Port for America, 425 Men, Women, and Children, all from Croydat, Lochaber, Appin, and Mam- more, Fort William included, viz. Maryburgh. It is allowed they carried at least 6000l. Ster- ling in ready Cash with them ; so that, by this Emigration, the Country is not only deprived of its Men, but likewise of its Wealth. The extra- vagant Rents exacted by the Landlords is the sole Cause for this Spirit of Emigration." Edinburgh, Sept. 18. Last Week the following remarkable Instance of Somnolency happened at Borrowstowness : A Man who was employed as a Reaper having eaten some of the Seeds of the Wild Poppy, was thrown into a profound Sleep, which continued for eight Days without the least Inter- mission. Many Methods were fallen upon in or- der to awaken him, but all to no Effect ; till at last, by jolting him for some Time in a Cart, he came to himself. He complained of Sickness, and called for a Drink, which being cautiously admi- nistered to him, he recovered so well as to be able to walk up to Linlithgow that Evening. COUNTRY NEWS. Lewes, Sept. 2o. On Friday last two High- waymen were taken up at Darking, in Surry, on Suspicion of robbing two Farmers on the High- Road, as they were returning from Darking Market. One of the Fanners lost his Watch, about 30s. and a Box of Money- Scales and Weights, which, being a Weight deficient, he carried to Darking and had compleated, and to the Identity of which Weight the Maker swore, when found in Possession of the Highwaymen ; whereupon they were committed by a Magistrate to the New Gaol in the Borough. It is supposed they are Soldiers. Hereford, Sept. 23. By a Letter from a Gentle- man of Veracity at Carmarthen, dated the 18th Instant, we have the following Account: — " This Day William Thomas, alias Blink, was executed agreeably to his Sentence. His Behaviour at the Place of Execution evinced, that he was not im- pressed with a proper Sense of the Awfulness of his Situation ; and he paid little Regard to the Exhortations of the Clergyman who attended him. He persisted in declaring, that he was perfectly innocent of the Fact for which he was about to suf- fer, and that he was not conscious of having com- mitted any attrocious Crime, except that of having been concerned in the Murder of Mr. Powell." — He is said to have confessed, that he had been ac- quainted with the Design to murder Mr. Powell long before it was carried into Execution ; and that he several Times endeavoured to dissuade Williams from his horrid Intention. But Wil- liams, persisting in his Resolution, overcame his Scruples by large Promises of Money and Friend- ship. He went fourteen Times in Pursuit of Powell, with Intent to murder him; sometimes alone, at other Times in Company, but for Want of Opportunity, or through Irresolution, he could not perpetrate the diabolical Act. During this Time he was plentifully supplied with Money by Williams. He accompanied the Murderers to the House of Mr. Powell the Night that Gentleman was murdered ; and said, he did not enter the House, but kept Guard at the Back- Door, whilst the others dispatched Mr. Powell. LONDON, Friday, Sept. 24. A Bill will certainly be brought into Parlia- ment the ensuing Winter for regulating the Rent of Land throughout England, as well as the Price of Corn and Bread ; it having been made evident to those who are the Promoters of the above Bill, that Corn and Bread can never be regulated, as to Price, without Land is also regulated. It is generally imagined from the Face of Things, that there will be some of the warmest Contests ever known in this Country, at the Ter- mination of the present Session of Parliament ; so convenient does the Court find it to have a large Set of Friends in the House. The Premier, so far from having given up his Views on a certain Great Company, we are told, it preparing to pluck their Feathers with unexam- pled Vigour the succeeding Winter. An Express was on Monday Morning sent after the Duke of Cumberland and his Duchess to Calais. Lord Chief Justice De Grey publickly treats the Decisions of Lord Mansfield with Severity, when they evidently contradict the known Max- ims of the Common Law. During the last Term, Mention was made of a Decision given contrary to the Principles of the purest Law, when Judge De Grey took Occasion to observe, that " such Proceedings might do in the King's Bench, but they would not do in the Common Pleas." His Majesty, as Elector of Hanover, has au- thorised the Chamber of that Electorate to ad- vance, according to their Wants, certain Sums of Money, to such industrious Farmers, its find them- selves distressed at Seed- Time, on Condition they pay the Money at Harvest ; also to give certain Rewards to such as break up and cultivate barren Grounds. By another Ordinance he has esta- blished a School or Seminary for the Instruction of many Years past so fine a Produce of Sugar as has been this last Season, there being no less than one hundred and thirteen thousand Hogsheads; a Quantity so unexpectedly great that the Gen- tlemen of that Island find a Difficulty to get Ships for the transporting it. It is to be hoped that this Abundance, like many of the Products of our own Country, will not be refined into a Want. They write from Liege, that the Bishop of that Name, in Consequence of the Pope's Bull for the Suppression of the Jesuits, caused his Seal to be put upon the Effects of the two Colleges of Je- suits there, the English and Walloons, and fur- nishing those Holy Fathers with Money for their Subsistence for three Months, he told them they had that Time to consider what they chose to do with themselves; in Consequence of which, it is said, they immediately came to a Resolution to put themselves under the Protection of the King of Prussia, and settle in the Duchy of Cleves. We learn that the first Disgust the different Branches of the House of Bourbon took to the Jesuits, was owing to the secret Opposition that Society made to the Pretender's Schemes. They obstructed his Attempts in 1745, though at the Pretender's Return from Scotland they were de- sirous of congratulating him upon his safe Ar- rival in France, and narrow Escape from his Ene- mies. The Pretender saw through that Hypo- crisy, and refused them Admittance. A Gentleman just arrived from Paris says, he met about 200 likely young Fellows ( who had been inveigled into the French Service in London) at a Village distant about nine Leagues from that Capital ; they seemed to be mostly Irish, in high Spirits, and were going to fill up the Brigade in the French Service. A Correspondent says he is glad to find that the City of Aberdeen have presented Dr. Johnson with the Freedom of that Place, for he has sold his Freedom on this Side the Tweed long since for a Pension. A Correspondent expresses his Indignation agninst the dullest, and most Time- serving Ma- gistrate, who wishes to suppress the keenest and fairest Attack upon corrupt Ministers that ever was wrote, under a Pretence of its encouraging Vice, and bringing many of the lower Ranks of People to the Gallows, because forsooth Macheath is not executed, and the Criminal comforts him- self, that notwithstanding he may be hanged for his Roguery,, he is not worse than his Betters: Our Correspondent admits, if his Betters are misrepre- sented by the Poet, the Lesson is a bad one; other- wise, he says, it is the bad Examples of these Bet- ters which fill the Gaols, and load the Gallows with unfortunate Criminals ; he wishes the faga- cious Magistrate would examine the Coterie ; look into the gaming Houses, the various Horse Races, and many new Places of Extravagance and Dissi- pation, and then determine, whether Housebreak- ing, Forgery, Robbery, & c. & c. are the genuine Effects of the Beggar's Opera, or the natural Con- sequence of Extravagance, Gaming, Debauchery, and bad Example: And he asks the Magistrate, whether Macheath's Theatrical Reprieve, or the real Pardons which of late Years have been ex- tended even to Murderers, is the most likely Source of the Vices and Enormities of the present Times. At the Meeting of the Justices at the Vine, in Salisbury, on Tuesday last, four Persons were con- victed of stealing Turnips — By an Act passed last Sessions, Persons guilty of this Offence forfeit Ten Shillings, and upon Non- payment must suffer at least One Month's Imprisonment. Letters from Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, and Northumberland, contain the most favour- able Accounts of the Harvest. The Quantities of Wheat are said to be almost incredible. However attrociously criminal the buying Corn as it stands on the Ground before it is cut, may appear, yet they write from several Parts of the Country, that this iniquitous Mode is so far from being singular or locally confined, that it is now almost the universal Practice of the Monopolizers, who like Worms in the Bud nip the Abundance of Providence; surely such Wretches highly de- serve the most exemplary Vengeance of the Law. A great Number of sharping People possessed of light Gold Coin, have taken the Advantage of the Arrival of the several Indian Ships in the River and elsewhere, and bitten the Biters, by putting off light Money for prohibited Com- modities. Tuesday Morning the Body of a young Woman was found murdered in a Field near Camberwell. Her Throat was cut from Ear to Ear, one of her Thumbs cut off, a large Cut in her Cheek, and another in her Right Arm, through her Gown. Tuesday Night General Gore was stopped by two Footpads near his House in Park- Lane, one of whom stood at his Horses' Heads, whilst the other opened his Chariot Door, and robbed him of his Gold Watch, and a Purse containing 16 Guineas. The General advised the Robber not to take his Watch, but he persisted in having it, and also obliged the General to pull off his Gloves, that he might examine whether he wore Rings. The Thief next asked for the General's Tooth- - pick Case; and upon being told that it was not worthy his Acceptance, as it cost only 7s. 6d. he declared he would take it, as he could probably sell it for a Crown. Wednesday William Edward White was com- Worcester, Sept. 30, 1773. SIX LECTURES upon the Anatomy and Physiology of the HUMAN BODY, will be read, the ensuing Winter, By Mr. TURBERVILLE, SURGEON.

Monday's andWednesday's Posts. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Bologna ( ltalyJ Aug. 30. IN the 27th in the Evening 28 Carme- lities arrived here from Modena. It is said the Duke, who was a great Protector of the Jesuits, is determined to revenge their Expulsion by expel- the Carmelites. If this Fancy should take, Catholic States may soon get rid of all these Locusts, and increase in Wealth, Population, Industry, as fast as the wiser Protestants. Constantinople, August 13. The Négociations a Peace are in a State of Languor ; we can have no Thoughts here of concluding one, unless Russians relax greatly in their proposed Con- ons. IRELAND. Dublin, Sept. 17. Notwithstanding the Steps en by the Magistrates to suppress Riots, yet general have lately happened in different Parts of Town. In Dominic- Street the other Even- two Ladies were stopped by the Mob and ssly insulted, only because they had formerly n remarkable for wearing Chintz and Muslin owns. In Marion- Square a Lady of Condition the Glasses of her Chair broken, but as she opened to be dressed in the Manufacture of this untry, she was permitted to pass without fur- ther Molestation. The Lord Mayor has been surprized of several intended Meetings, and has de Us e of every Precaution to put a Stop to ther Tumults and Bloodshed ; but the late Con- of his Lordship, in ordering out the Troops, contributed to inflame, instead of allay, the imosities of the People. Being impoverished oppressed almost beyond enduring, they seem desperated even to Madness ; they grow careless Consequences, declaring, that as no Encourage- ment is given to the Manufactures of their Coun- they are resolved to be revenged of those who rive their Families of Bread, by wearing Fo- n Manufactures. Their Phrase is, Hang us at, but do not starve us by Inches. Such is the rit whic h prevails amongst the People of this untry ; and it must be confessed, if they are not isiable, in their Excesses, they are at least ex- seable in their Complaints ; for whether owing Ignorance or Design, so little Attention hath of Years been paid to the manufacturing Interests Ireland that almost every Branch declines apace. COUNTRY NEWS. Birmingham, Sept. 27. On Wednesday last one on at Coventry, the Election of a Mayor that City for the Year ensuing, when Mr. Al- derman Soden was chosen without Opposition. is is that Gentleman's second Advancement the Mayoralty. Gloucester, Sept. 27. Last Week was held here solemn annual Meeting of the People called akers. The very great Respect with which were treated by every Rank of Inhabitants this City, gave them the highest Satisfaction ; indeed, such Simplicity of Manners, and able Deportment, must always attract Vene- on and Regard. Mrs. Phillips, a Lady of a y large Fortune in Cornwall, was one of the it distinguished Speakers. LONDON, Monday, Sept. 27. It is said that a Bill is preparing against the ing of Parliament to abolish the cruel Custom charming out the Parish Poor, whose Sufferings en they fall into mercenary Hands are inex- ssible. It is said that a Member of an august Assembly nds to obtain a Law the ensuing Sessions, that Criminals in Great- Britain for Transportation, be sent to the British Settlements upon the st of Africa, there to work during the Time their Sentence. As the African Company can contain a Soldier upon Rice for Sixpence a Day, likewise cloath him, it will save the Com- y a very considerable annual Sum, and will the enormous Charge of the African Forts Government. It is thought one of the first Objects of the Parliament will be to establish an Act for re- maining the Emigrations of the People of that ntry to the Colonies for a limitted Time ; at same Time to grant some Immunities to the er Orders of People, who have hitherto in a nner been forced out of the Kingdom from r Necessities. The very contemptible Opinion entertained oad of our present Administration is, we are red, the sole Reason of the Spirit of Opposi- tion that reigns in many Parts of the American tinent. The Boston ( New- England) Gazette of Aug. contains the following Article. — On Satur- day last, being the Anniversary of the memorable 14th of August 1765, when the primitive, , and independent Spirit of uncorrupted Bri Subjects in America made a second success- Effort against Tyranny and Oppression, the s of Liberty, with their Fathers and Friends, this and the neighbouring Towns, con- ed on Roxbury Common, to the Number of Gentlemen. There was a very superb Tent ted, sufficiently capacious to contain the nu- merous Guests. Unfortunately the Forenoon was , which prevented a considerable Number of Gentlemen, who had engaged their Company, m sharing in the Festivity of the Day. But at Hour of Dinner it ceased to rain, and two nges of Tables were filled. During the En- tertainment, a select Band of Music patroled the ent, and gladdened the Hearts of the Patriots th the celebrated Song of The Farmer : The nquet was worthy the Occasion; the rich and tile Fields of America were profuse of their unties to " the Sons of those venerable Bri- is who conquered and possessed the grateful il." After an elegant Repast, several patriotic pasts were drank, succeeded by a Feu de Joye the Cannon, and the soft Sympathy of col- led Music. Mirth and Decency shook Hands ing the whole Festival ; smiling Joy animated having by their Deportment through the Day established this sacred Character, that the Ene- mies to Usurpation and Oppression are the great Exemplars of Older and Decency." Extract of a Letter from New- York, Aug. 19. " A Proclamation, dated the 11th of June, is received from Georgia, published by Sir James Wright, Governor of that Province, in Conse- quence of the late Cession of Lands by the Creek and Cherokee Indians upon Savannah River, & c. containing his Majesty's Instructions for selling the said Lands, which are parcelling out in Tracts of 100 to 1000 Acres, and are to be excepted from Payment of quit Rent for ten Years, and a Fort is to be immediately built and garrisoned for the Se- curity and Protection of the Settlers against disor- derly Hunters, Vagrants, and straggling Indians; one hundred Acres to be granted to the Master or Head of a Family, and fifty Acres for the Wife and each Child, and also fifty Acres for each Slave : And the Masters or Heads of Families will be allowed to purchase fifty Acres for each able- bodied white Servant Man who they shall bring in to settle thereon, provided such Servants be in- dented for two Years ; and also 25 Acres for every Woman Servant from the Age of fifteen Years to forty Years, indented for two Years. " It is apprehended the above is a Plan which Government will adopt in all the other Colonies. " On Tuesday last arrived the Brigantine Fa- vourite, Capt. Fisher, in 64 Days from White- haven, with about 120 English Passengers, who are come to purchase, and settle on Lands in this Country." Letters from Copenhagen, dated, Sept. 7, say, " The Reports occasionally circulated, that the King Of Denmark was about to be reconciled to his Queen, and that she was to return to Copen- hagen, have no Foundation in Fact ; on the con- trary, the Queen Dowager continues in the highest Degree of Favour, and on the 4th of this Month, being the Day she entered into the 45th Year of her Age, it was celebrated by a Grand Gala at Friedensberg, where was a sumptuous Dinner on the Occasion." It is determined that the Queen of Denmark must remain at Zell the ensuing Winter. Notwithstanding the Terms on which a R - 1 Duke stands with a Great Personage, and that his Finances are by no Means equal to his Birth, his R - 1H fs has refused to accept the Salary of 6000l. per Annum, annexed to the Office of Chancellor of the University of a neighbouring Kingdom, being content with the Honour of the Office, while ( by his truly princely Generosity) the Salary is appointed to charitable and other public Uses. Friday ten Horses that came by Shipping with the Tripoline Ambassador, sent as a Present from the Dey of Algiers to his Majesty, were brought to St. James's, and led into the Garden under the Care of several Turks, where his Majesty, accom- panied by Lord March, and the said Ambassador, viewed them ; after which they were delivered into the Care of his Majesty's Grooms, and sent to the Queen's Stables at Buckingham- Gate.— They have been eight Months on the Sea, and three Weeks of the Time stood the Depth of their Legs in Water, occasioned by the Bursting of some Water Casks, which run into the Hold where they were. They appeared to be very fine Creatures for the Turf, and are said to be worth 1o, oool. We are informed that a Merchant in the City has received an Order from the Court of Peters- burgh, to buy up Cloth to the Value of 40,000L. for cloathing the Czarina's Army. They write from Rome, that the Plate found in the different Colleges and Churches belonging to the Jesuits is valued at one Million of Scudis, and has been all consiscated. It has also been disco- vered, that the Jesuits had lodged in the Bank of Venice, three Years since, immense Sums of Mo- ney, for which they had 60,000 Scudis per Ann. [ 15,000l.] which is now stopped. A certain Magistrate was exclaiming the other Day, in a public Company, against the Beggar's Opera, as the Source of Vice and Debauchery, and insisted that the Lord Chamberlain ought to forbid the Exhibition of it. True, cries a Lord at Table, and so he should any of Shakespear's Plays, for the Practice of Deer- stealing grows worse and worse every Day, and I am persuaded the Villains are encouraged in their Roguery, and think their Occupation honourable, because Shakespeare was a Deer- stealer. It is humourously reported, that the Corres- pondence between Sir John Fielding and Mr. Garrick, respecting the Beggar's Opera, com- menced with the former's officially desiring of the latter, that Macheath might be hanged agreeable to the dark Complection of his Crimes. The Manager, in Return, pleasantly remarked, that it did not seem his Interest at present to carry Con- viction to such Lengths, whatever it might be the Knight's; and therefore, without he could point out how he might likewise gain Fourscore hard Pounds by every Execution of his favourite Hero, he must beg Leave to wave a Ceremony so disagreeable in every Point of View. The Portsmouth Expedition, we hear, is to be introduced in the Entertainment of the Jubilee this Season at Drury- Lane Theatre. They write from Manchester, that a new Sur- vey of that Town has been taken this Summer, from whence it appears that the Inhabitants amount to 27,246. The Females exceed the Males by 1645 ; the Widows are more than dou- ble the Number of Widowers; and about a Se- venth Part of the Inhabitants have attained the Age of fifty. Friday a small compact Grafs Farm, belong- ing to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, near Edgware, at present lett at 1901. per Annum, was lett on a Lease for 21 Years at the Rent of 420L. the Te- nant to lay oat 400L. in Repairs of the same. It is very remarkable there were no less than thirty- three Persons who attended to bid for it. A few Days since a Gentleman who had been at Rotherhithe to receive 3ool coming back by his Tenant, and immediately proposed to dive for it, which being agreed to, he went down twelve Feet in Water, and found the Bag ; upon which the Gentleman forgave him a Sum of Money due for Rent, and made him a handsome Present beside. Last Thursday Mr. Harminger, Seedsman in Burford- Street, Southwark, being in a Fever and delirious, jumped out of Bed, and ran down Stairs, where he took a Knife, and stabbed him- self in the Neck ; his Wife, who was in the Room with him, ran down after him, which he perceiv- ing, ran to her, as supposed, to stab her, but she falling on her Knees, he tumbled over her, and thereby she escaped the Michief. He lived about twenty Minutes after, and has left his Wife with four Children, and big with the fifth. A few Days since a married Man in Clerken- well, ran off with a young Lady of 5ool. per An- num to France, by the Consent of his Wife, who is preparing to follow them. Monday the 13th Instant two Bulls started for a considerable Sum, at Kora, near Whitchurch, Shropshire, the best of three Two- mile Heats; they were rode by their Owners, answered the Whip exceeding well, and afforded great Diver- ston to a great Number of Spectators, the Win- ner getting it by only Half a Neck. On Tuesday last, two Men belonging to Mr. Cooke's Brewhouse at Newport, in the Isle of Wight, attempting to go down a Ladder into a large Store - Cask, ( sufficient to contain one hundred and forty Hogsheads) in order to clean it, were immediately suffocated, notwithstanding no Beer had been therein for near four Months past. Another Man, in endeavouring to get them out, was very near sharing the same unhappy Fate : He had just Power to fasten a Rope round one of them, when he sell, but a Precaution having been taken to tie a Rope round his Body, he was im- mediately drawn up, though it was several Hours before he recovered. Many Methods were made use of to bring the others to Life, but none were effectual. They both were married, and had large Families. WORCESTER INFIRMARY. Sept. 19, 1773.

These Cakes make, with the utmost Ease, by the Addition of Water only, a most excellent shining Liquid Blacking, much superior to any hitherto known : It gives the finest Black, and most beauti- ful Gloss to the Leather, yet never renders it stiff or hard, but, on the contrary, prevents its cracking, and preserves it soft, pliable, and mellow to the very last, whereby it is rendered more agreeable to the Wearer, as well as much more durable; it is perfectly free from Smell, and the Shoes that are blacked with it, will neither foil the Fingers in put- ting on, nor the Stockings in wearing.

Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Aleppo, " July 12. HE last Letters received here from Bassora and Bagdad, bring the most melancholy Accounts concerning the Plague, which has carried off about 100,000 Persons in the first - mentioned City, and upwards of 200,000 in the latter. The French Consul at Bagdad, and the Agent of that Nation at Bassora, and all the Catholic Priests in these two Cities are among the Dead. The Agent of Great Britain in all Probability escaped the same Fate by retiring into the Country with some of his Countrymen, several of whom sell into the Hands of Kirin- Kan, their Enemy. We expected that the Death of Aly Bey would have put an End to our Troubles; but since we have learnt that Rebel has been replaced by the old Chiek- Daher, who, to strengthen his Party, has concluded an Alliance with the Druses, Fear and Dismay prevail along our Coasts. Our Trade continues on the Decline, and our Merchants sustain considerable Losses by the Russian Corfairs that insect our Coasts. Warsaw, Sept. 8. The Baron de Stackelberg, Minister from Russia, has sent a Courier to Pe- tersburgh with the Treaty he has concluded with the King and the Republic of Poland. It is as- sured that no Mention is made of the Dissidents in this Treaty, which contains 12 Articles, but that this Point will be settled by the Dyet, as also the new Form of Government that is to be in- troduced in this Kingdom. Warsaw, Sept. 11. Yesterday Lukawski and Cybulski were executed : They were brought to the Place of Execution the same Way they had obliged the King to go in the Night of the 3d of November, guarded by all the Guards of the Crown and a strong Detachment of Uhlans: They were both dressed in White, went in separate Waggons, and two Capuchins with them. In a third Waggon were Kosinski; Offenberg, and Pes- zinski, who, with Lukawski's Wife, were all to be present at the Execution. Kosinski was in Tears all the Way he went. Lukawski ascended the Scaffold first, with great Fortitude, and to the Astonishment of every body present, made a very affecting Speech, wherein he confessed his Guilt, and hoped for Pardon ; after which he sat down on the Chair, and would not have any Thing tied over his Eyes, but holding his Head as upright as he could, gave the Signal for the Blow, which followed immediately ; after which his Hands were cut off, his Body opened, and the Inside put in a Bag, then quartered and burnt. Cybulski, who was obliged to be a Spectator of all this then mounted the Scaffold, and sat down in the Chair, where his Head was likewise taken off, and his Body suffered to be buried. The Executioner, who was sent for out of Ermeland, made a Speech to the People, and particularly addressed himself to the elder Part of the Spectators, advising them to be careful so to bring up their Children, that they might never come to the unhappy End of the late unfortunate Wretches whom he had just exe- cuted. Lastly the Names of the two who died in Prison, Tubalowits and Hegwezewski, were hung up at the Gallows. COUNTRY NEWS. Canterbury, Sept. 25. On Wednesday last the Hop Market began in this City, on which Occa- sion there was a numerous Meeting of Gentlemen, Hop Planters, & c. Some Hops in fine Cloth were sold from 7l. 12s. to 7l. 15s. per Hundred, some choice Things would have brought 81. but there were few ready for Sale. Upon the Whole very little done. Newcastle, Sept. 25. Last Saturday Morning died here, of a lingering Illness, the ingenious Mr. John Cunningham, well known in the lite- rary World for his eminent pastoral Talents. LONDON, Tuesday, Sept. 28. Yesterday Evening, agreeable to an Advertise- ment, a numerous Meeting of the Livery was held at the Half Moon Tavern. About Seven, Mr. Bishop being voted Chairman, entered upon the Business of the Meeting ; he spoke about the extreme Importance of the Office of Mayor, and touched upon the Qualifications essentially requi- site in the Candidates to be put in Nomination ; he then concluded, by mentioning the following Gentlemen, proposed, by their respective Friends, as proper Persons to serve the Office, viz. Messrs. Wilkes, Bull, Sawbridge, and Oliver. A Question then was started by several Gen- tlemen present, Whether the Candidates should be put up jointly or separately? Mr. Deputy Judd proposed a separate Nomination ; Mr. Hurford by the Rule of Proceeding, two of them must jointly be returned to the Court of Aldermen : This seemed, in general, to be the Sense of the Majority present, who unanimously called out, let the Candidates be jointly proposed." Messrs. Wilkes and Bull were then put up, and the Room refounded with Acclamation. Messrs. Sawbridge and Oliver were next pro- posed, and the Numbers in their Favour appear- ing much greater than was expected, the Chair- man found it impossible to determine on which Side the Shew of Hands sell. To decide the Point, a Division was requested by the Friends of Messrs. Sawbridge and Oliver, and after some Altercation consented to by the Partizans of the other Candidates. It was therefore agreed, that the Gentlemen who meant to support the Interests of Messrs. Sawbridge and Oliver should leave the Room, whilst the Friends of Messrs. Wilkes and Bull continued. Tellers being appointed on both Sides, the Numbers were reported to the Chair- man as follows: For Wilkes and Bull 119 Sawbridge and Oliver — 102 Majority 17 The Chairman then put the Question, " Whe- ther he should report the Result of the Proceed- ings to the Common Hall To- morrow ? It passed in the Affirmative. Thus concluded the Business of the Evening, during which, Altercations, excited by the Heat of Party, were carried to greater Lengths than cool dispassionate Reason might justify. The Friends of Messrs Wilkes and Bull charged their Opponents with wishing to have each Candidate separately proposed, with no other View than to couple together Sawbridge and Wilkes, that thus, through the Popularity of the latter, the former might occupy a Seat to which his Merit gave no Kind of Claim. This they called " playing over again the Game of 1772, when Townsend archly hopped off with the Sword of Magistracy, to the Mortification of every Friend to Liberty in the City." Whilst the above Business was going on, there was a Boxing Match between Mr. Maskall and Mr. Stone, wherein the latter received a good Drubbing and a Black Eye. One of the two favourite Candidates in the City for the Mayor's Chair has declared, that if the Choice should fall upon him, he will resign in Favour of his Brother the patriotic Alderman. Yesterday Morning the Lord Mayor issued out his Precept for summoning the Constables of the several Wards of this City to attend To- morrow at Guildhall, the Day for electing the Lord Mayor for the ensuing Year, to keep the Way clear for the Aldermen and Livery to pass into the Hall. And Orders were given to the City Marshal to attend with his Men at Guildhall Door, to see that the Constables do their Duty, and likewise to prevent as much as in their Power the Popu- lace insulting any of the Aldermen, & c. and that such as are found offending, shall be taken into Custody, and dealt with according to Law. This Day, at Guildhall, Messrs. Sayer and Lee were sworn in joint Sheriffs of the City of London and County of Middlesex for the Year ensuing; as was likewise Mr, Reynolds to the Office of Under Sheriff to them both. The political Whisper at the West End of the Town is, that the Parliament will not meet till after Christmas ; when after mending some same Authorities in the late East- India Bill, and getting a large Supply from the Public, for Fear of a War, they will be dissolved early in April. Thus by the former, Ministry will be enabled to carry Cor- ruption into the Èast ; by the latter, Venality into our Boroughs .— A good Beginning generally makes a good Ending. Some Dispatches were received on Saturday Evening at the Secretary of State's Office from Sir George Bridges Rodney at Jamaica. By the same Vessel, it is said, there is Advice that a Fri- gate had been dispatched from Jamaica to recon- noitre the Havannah ; that she saw there 15 Sail of the Line, and 4 Frigates, all their Sails bent. The English Sailors who are confined in the Goals of the Spanish Settlements in the West- In- dies, lately found Means to transmit an Account of their Situation to Government here, and a Pe- tition praying for Relief. It was very safely deli- vered by a Gentleman of respectable Character, but no Notice has been taken, nor is it believed that any Notice is intended to be taken of it. Instead of our Merchants soliciting and doing every Thing in their Power to renew their Trade with the Portuguese, we are pretty well informed that no Stone is left unturned by the King and Merchants of Portugal to ingratiate themselves into the good Graces of Old England again ; but their Ingratitude is too strongly impressed in the Minds of Englishmen to give them Credit for what they say. Most of the Powers of Europe are alarmed and in Suspense. They are shocked at the Unnatural Combination of three great Powers who origi- nally had certainly a Distrust of, and Hatred for each ether. But the Love of Spoil will unite the most ferocious Animals ; and Lions, Wolves, and Tigers will hunt in Concert. It is a Matter of Doubt where the Russian Bear, the German Ea- gle, and Prussian Vulture may seek for new Prey to satisfy their voracious Appetites. It is said the King of Prussia has declared him- self the Friend of the Jesuits, and will grant them his Protection. If these reverend Fathers are pos- sessed of considerable Effects, his Machiavelian Majesty will take Care of them and their Affairs till he has robbed them of the last Shilling. In this he will but follow the Example of other great Powers who make no Scruple to seize the Goods of these unhappy Wretches wherever they can find them : But it is just, that a Society which was founded on Principles contrary to the Well- being of Mankind, should find no Protection from the Laws of any Country, or any Support from Humanity. In Sweden and Denmark, the Punishment for Extract of a Better from Petersburgh, Sept, 15. " An Ambassador from the Court of Ispahan is just arrived, with a numerous and grand Re- tinue, and a great Number of magnificent Pre- sents for her Imperial Majesty and his Highness the Grand Duke The Arrival of this Ambassa- dor is publickly known to be on the Account of a Treaty negociating between the Empress and the Sophi of Persia, respecting the present War between the Russians and Turks, in which the Persians have already began to take some Part, and will soon bear a more considerable one." A Correspondent says, ten brave English Sai- lors, delivered from Slavery in Barbary, would have been a much more welcome Present to our Sovereign than so many Arabian Horses. A Petition of the Farmers of the Poor is ready to be laid before the House setting forth, that unless some Restrictions be laid on Forestallers, Engrossers, & c. their most rigid Frugality will not enable them to support their Charge, even in the emaciated State they have long been. Lord Bellamont, we hear, will occupy a very considerable Post in the Army in a short Time. This is News asserted as a Fact at a certain House in Pall- Mall. And at a House in Parlia- ment- Street it was last Week confidently asserted, that a Great Personage lately made his Lordship an Offer of a very lucrative Post, who refused it, saying, " I never intend entering into the Army any more." The Princess Amelia, who has been indisposed for some Days past, is so well recovered that she took an Airing Yesterday. Notice was Yesterday given by the Keepers of Richmond Park to the Public, that that Day was the last the Public would be ever indulged in walk- ing there, the Gardens at Kew and Richmond being both to be laid into one. There are in this Town two well- known Ladies of high Rank, who have so far exceeded Massalina in their Amours, as both to bed with the Husband of the one by mutual Consent, and they have so far refined upon Gallantry as not to startle at the Thoughts of a Brother or Nephew. This may be deemed News- paper Scandal, but it is a Truth well known to many Parties, and the Condition of the Perpetrators of such shocking Depravity ought not to screen them from being pointed out to the Public as Objects of Detestation to the rest of their Species. If to indulge in Crimes, at which Nature shudders with Abhorrence, be cha- racteristic of the People of Fashion, Heaven grant that the Land may speedily be thinned of such in- famous Reptiles ! The Wife of a certain Peer has had an Affair of Gallantry with her Sister's Husband ; the Con- sequence is likely to prove an Addition to the human Race of a fine chopping Boy. Yesterday a Man was committed to the Poultry Compter by the Lord Mayor, for attempting to commit an unnatural Crime in a Meeting- House in this City ; the Clergyman belonging to the Meeting was a material Evidence against him. General Gansel was taken ill on Sunday, at his Apartments in the Fleet of a Fever, and has since been confined to his Bed. Tuesday had a melancholy Accident happened at Kimblewick, in Buckinghamshire : — A Cow Doctor was sent for to bleed a Cow belonging to a Farmer of that Place : No sooner had he tied the Neck and found the Vein, than he clapped his Lancet to it, and struck it, when the Beast throw- ing her Head up, with her Horn beat out one of his Eyes, and while he was holding his Hand to his Head, she a second Time threw up her Head, and struck her Horn into his Neck, and tore his Windpipe asunder, which killed him on the Spot. He has left a Wife and Family behind him. Last Night the House of Mr. Deboutre, Hatter, in Bear- Lane, ( being the second Time) was broke open, but he having a Brace of Pistols by him fired at one of the Villains as he was going off, and wounded him, as the Blood was traced several Yards. Last Night some Thieves attempted to break into the House of Mr. Onley, Lighterman, in Breemer's Court, Southwark, when the Appren- tice, who lay below Stairs, discharged a Fowling Piece at them, and killed one of the Villains on the Spot; the others made a precipitate Retreat. At Reading Fair on Tuesday last, new Cheese sold from 25s. to 34s. per Cwt. ; old from. 30s to 40s. and some of a particular Sort so high as 44s. Letter from Sligo, in Ireland, Sept. 14. " On Saturday the 4th our Assizes ended, when ( after a Trial of eight Hours) Serjeant Slack was found guilty of having murdered his Wife, for which he received Sentence to be hanged, his head cut off, and his Body quartered. At the Gallows, this Day, he behaved with a Resolu- tion surpassing any Thing I had ever conceived from a Man in, such Circumstances. On the Lad- der he made a well- connected, sensible Speech, of upwards of Half an Hour long, and in the most solemn Manner denied the Fact, and cap- tioned all present who were Freeholders, when on Juries, that they should not convict on Circum- stances ( which only appeared against him on his Trial). After he had finished this Harrangue, he called, in a settled resolute Tone of Voice, for the Executioner to do his Duty; but no Hang- man appearing, the High Sheriff was obliged to do the Business himself; and just as Slack was going to be turned off, he declared that he was sorry so worthy a Magistrate should be compelled to perform so disagreeable an Office."

To the PRINTER. SIR, HE Spirit of Colonization in our Governors, and the Spirit of Emigration in the People, bid to ruin and depopulate, this Kingdom. When- r the Colonies of a Nation shall arrive to be atly superior in Number of People, and conse- ntly in Strength, to their Mother Country, that tion will of Course become more dependent on than they on her; especially if such Nation be burdened with Taxes, overawed by large stand- Armies,. and weakened by Luxury and Corrup- tion . Ancient Rome was brought to Ruin by the Altitude and Greatness of its Acquisitions Abroad, well as by its Luxury and Corruption at Home : d so must every State, that increases its foreign, minions beyond all Proportion to its own inter- Strength. Every Nation, in their Pursuit of eign Acquisitions, should ever observe a due Pr0- portion to the Number of its People at Home; for otherwise they will, by the constant Increase of Peo- ple in such acquired Territories, transfer, in Time, original Power of the State to them. Colonies, especially in a commercial Country, do certainly to increase its Wealth, and augment the strength and Power of its State; but then they would never be extended to that Degree, as to bear Proportion to the Number of its People at Home; cause, whenever they are so, it will be impossible such Country to keep its Colonies in due Sub- . In what Light soever our Rulers may look on the Number of People at Home, or how re- less soever they may be of them, and of in- creasing their Number, they constitute the Strength Power of the state; if they increase, the Power of the Kingdom does so; but if they decrease, the Strength of the State must of course decay. It cannot be denied, but that the Colonies of Great- Britain are already extended beyond a due Proportion to its People at Home ; the Branches of the Tree are now rather too large for its Body; and every sensible person must forefee, that our Fellow Subjects in America will, in less than, fifty Years, form a State much more numerous and powerful than their Mother - Country. At this Time, were they inclined to throw off their De- pendency, it would be very difficult for this King- dom to keep them in Subjection. What then will they be in fifty Years Time, when their Numbers will be more than trebled by natural Propagation only, without the Addition of Thousands, who fly every Year to that happy Country, where they can live with Freedom, and get their Bread with Ease. It certainly behoves the Government to think in Time of such Matters, and to take proper Measures for preventing the Emigration of our People to America, and for encreasing the Number of them in this Nation ; but no Steps whatsoever which the Ministry can take, will be likely to produce such an happy Effect, unless the People shall be suffered to live in that Liberty they were born to, and shall be able to procure by their Labour and Industry, such a comfortable Subsistence as Englishmen have been accustomed to. I am, Sir, & c. REFLECTOR. This Day is published, Price is. 6d. ANew Practical Essay on CANCERS: Containing, 1. An Account of their Nature, Causes, and Species. 2.

Mr. BARLOW, Author of The Complete English Dictionary, REVEREND SIR, ALL the English Dictionaries which have pre- ceded your's have, as your Proposals assert, been either too voluminous or too concise. The former renders the Work too expensive for those who are in most Need of Instruction, and are in- capable of procuring it, for Want of the Pockets of Opulence; the latter renders Improvement im- possible on Account of both Obsurity and Defect. I must felicitate you on having taken the middle Way; and I am not ashamed to say, that your Work, though not so voluminous as others of the same Kind, is, with Respect to Utility, more gene- ral ; you have omitted nothing useful; you have inserted nothing useless. Your Etymoligies are the best I have seen; your Definitions are more precise than any I can remember. The Addition you have made, with Respect to Biography and Geography, are entirely new, in a Work of this Kind. If you succeed, you deserve it, and you. have not only my best Wishes for Success, but my Offers of assisting you in any Department wherein you may imagine a person who has spent his Life in Researches of this Kind, can be of Service to the Public. I am, Rev. Sir, St. Paul's School, Sincerely your Friend, London, June 12, 1773. W. RIDER. An ENTIRE NEW WORK, on an extensive Plan.

FREEMAN'S GUTTA SALUTARIS Or, DROP of HEALTH; TAKEN in a Wine- Glass of cold Water, cures the SCURVY, VENEREAL. and LEPROSY, in all their Stages: Any person doubt- ing it's Efficacy, may refer to the following Affidavit. To DR FREE M A N. SIR, For the universal Good of Mankind, that my labour under the same Disorder that I have done, do make Oath on the Holy Evangelists, That I, DAVID MURRAY, of Scotland Yard, Charing Cross, ( an Officer by Com- mission in the Army) was very severely afflicted with a most inveterate Venereal Disorder, and had been under the Hands of several Gentlemen of the Faculty, endea- vouring to get cured, but to no Effect; for the longer they practised on me, the worse I grew, so that at last my Face was changed to the Colour of a Mulatto, and the Parts inflamed to an enormous Size, attended with violent Pains, & c. but by taking four small Bottles of your GUTTA SALUTARIS, it made an excessive fine Cure, and that in about six Weeks Time. 1 therefore think that every Gentleman who receives the Benefit that I have done, from so valuable a Medicine, need not be ashamed to let the Public know its Efficacy ; which I pray the Favour of you to do for me. Witness my Hand this 20th Day of June, 1771, DAVID MURRAY, Ensign of the late 76th Regt. Westminster, ( to wit) Sworn before me the Day above written, JOHN GOODCHILD; This Medicine is sold, wholesale and retail, at 5s. 3d. a Bottle, by the Printer of this Paper. GLASS ' s Magnesia, APPROVED and recommended by the most Eminent of the Faculty, and given with good Effect to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and the younger Princes, is sold, as usual, at his House in Oxford, in Guinea, Half- Guinea and Six Shilling Boxes, with Directions for taking it inclosed. This Preparation, which for Purity and Good- ness far exceeds every other, is well known to be be most powerful corrector of Acid in the Stomach and Bowels ; and is therefore particularly efficacious in Children's Disorders, and may be safely given to them in their earliest Infancy. It is equally service- able to persons of more advanced Years, of deli- cate Constitutions, and to those whose Powers of Di- gestion are naturally weak or impaired, as it corrects that Acidity arising from Indigestion, which is the Foundation of most chronical Complaints. The Heartburn it instantly cures, and is an effectual Re- medy for habitual Costiveness. It is also the most gentle Purgative yet discovered, operates without Sickness or Griping, requires no Confinement, or Regiment of Diet, and is entirely without Smell or Taste. It is also appointed to be sold in London by W. Davis, Bookseller, in Piccadilly, W. Nicoll, in St. Paul's Church- Yard; ( with good Allowance to sell again) and by Mr. Moody, in Birmingham; Mr. Haslewood, Bridgnorth; Mr. Jopson, Coventry Mr. Raikes, Gloucester ; Mr. Eddowes, Salop ; by H. Ber- row, Worcester; and a Dealer in most of the princi- pal Town's in England; likewise by the Worcester Newsmen. Where may he had, An ESSAY on the Nature and Virtues of this Me- dicine Price 1s. His Majesty has been pleased to grant his Royal Letters Patent to JAMES JACKSON and Co. Chymists, for their OLEUM A NODI N UM, or British Balsam of Health, having been happily experienced by many Thousands to be the most efficacious Remedy against the Gout, Rheumatic and Sciatic Pains, Fistulas, Ulcers, Evil, Leprosy, Bruises, Sprains, Palsies, Pleuri- fies, Piles, Dropsy, Stone, Cravel, Consumptions, and all Complaints of the Lungs, Convulsions, & c. and purifies the whole Mass of Blood. The following are some of the extraordinary Cures performed by this Balsam. Mr. Thomas of Sherborn - Lane, Lombard- Street, Lon- don, was cured of a Consumption. Mr. Hall, of Isling- ton, of the Gravel in his Kidneys', so bad he could not walk upright. Mr. Wilkinson, of Vine- Street, Hat- ton- Garden, London, of the Rheumatism. Mrs. Knight, of Blandford in the County of Dorset, was swelled to an immoderate Size with the Dropsy. Mary Hughes, at the Rainbow Coffee- House, Snow- Hill, London, of Convulsions Mr. Forster, at the Rose, in Cheapside, London, of the Gout. Mrs. Holmes, at the Red Lion, Tottenham- court Road, London, of the Dropsy and the Loss o f the Use of her Limbs. Mr. Farmer, of Poles- worth, in Warwickshire, of an hereditary Leprosy, which he had been afflicted with from his Birth. This Balsam has perfected great Numbers of amazing Cures in complicated Disorders, which cannot be here in- serted. It is sold Wholesale and Retail by Messrs, Jackson and Co. Chymists, in George- Yard, Lombard- Street, London; by the Printer of this Journal; and may be had of the News- carriers, at 2s. 6d. per Bottle. By His Majesty's Letters Patent, ( Granted 10 WALTER LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) is recommended the Justly Famous PILL, called in the Patent, PILULA SALUT ARIA; And there pronounced to be a Cure for the VENEREAL DISEASE, SCURVY, and RHEUMATISM. IN fifteen or eighteen Days it generally cures those cruel Disorders, and where it fails of perfectly restoring Health in that Time, the Patient has the happy Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being restored, let the De- gree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the complaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter. which they soon dislodge and expell. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Re- storer, by taking only eight single Pills ( as instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year. In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and uni- versal same. 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 of 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.
