MONDAY'S POST. Arrived the Mails from Holland and France. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Ostend, February 3. THE distemper among the horned cattle has broken out afresh in the district of Femes; but in the district of Bruges, which extends for above three leagues round this town, the sickness has totally ceased. St. James's March 4. This day the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council of the City of London, waited upon his Majesty; and being introduced to his Majesty by the Earl of Hert- ford, Lord Chamberlain, Thomas Nugent, Esq; the Common Serjeant, made their complaints in the following address. To the KING's Most Excellent Majesty. Most Gracious Sovereign, " WE your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Com- mon Council of your ancient city of London, in Common Council assembled, beg leave to approach your Majesty's sacred person with our warmest congratulations on the happy delivery ot our most excellent Queen, and the auspicious birth of another Prince. " With gratitude to the Divine Goodness we behold the increase of your Majesty's august House, as it augments your Majesty's domestic felicity, and gives more permanent security to the civil and religious liberties of your people." To which address his Majesty was pleased to return the following most gracious answer." " I receive with pleasure this dutiful and affec- tionate address. Your congratulations, and the sentiments which you express on the further in- crease of my family, cannot fail of affording me great satisfaction." After which his Majesty was pleased to confer the honour ot Knighthood on Walter Rawlinson, Esq; one of the Aldermen of the city ot Lon- don. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Feb. 28. Last night came down by express to the Lord Provost of this city, a res- pite, during his Majesty's pleasure, to Agnes Adams, the youngest of the two sisters under sen- tence of death for the murder of Janet M'Intyre. The eldest is to suffer on Wednesday next. COUNTRY NEWS. Oxford, March At our assizes, this week, four persons were capitally convicted and received sentence of death, viz. Thomas Painter, for sheep- breaking; Sarah Parker for house- breaking ; Edward Parslow, for stealing a mare ; and Thomas Bailey for returning from transportation. The three last were reprieved before their Lordships left this place; and Painter was left for execution. Two were sentenced to be transported for seven years; one to be branded in the hand; two to be publickly whipped; one to be privately whipped; five were acquitted ; and four discharged by pro- clamation. Reading, March At our assizes which began on Tuesday, the four following received sentence 01 death, viz. William Adams, for robbing John Steer and William Budds on the highway ; Dinah Phipps tor breaking into the dwelling house of Thomas Roberts, and stealing thereout various goods ; William Clarke, for breaking into the dwelling house of Richard Belcher and stealing five guineas, & c. and Richard Hoare for breaking into the house ot Richard Rhoby, and stealing wearing apparel, & c. & c. The three former were reprieved before the judges left the town, and Hoare is left for execution. William Lovegrove for stealing a quantity of beans out of « barge, John Day for stealing flour, & c. and Thomas Fuller for stealing a quantity of beans out of a barn, were severally ordered to be trans- ported for seven years.— James Morris, concerned with Lovegrove in stealing the beans, was burnt in the hand and discharged, and immediately became evidence against William Dagnall, who was charged with buying the said beans, knowing them to be stole : Dagnal moved the Court that his trial might be postponed until next assizes, on account ot his witnesses not being ready, which was granted, and his Lordship ordered the fetters Which had been just before taken off Morris to be put on Dagnal, and notwithstanding considerable bail was offered, it was refused by the Court, and he was ordered to be fastened in the link with the other felons and committed. The following were acquitted, viz. Ann Clough, indicted for burglary ; John Chandlor, for horse- stealing ; Jacob Wilkins, for maliciously maim- ing a horse ; John Saunders for the murder of Mr. Ketchside ; William Best, for Burglary; John Smart for sheep stealing.— William Clan- vill, indicted for dealing a flitch of bacon, & c. out of the dwelling- house of Mr. Deane ; Ri- chard Westmocket, for stealing two bushels of barley out of the malt- house of George Giles; Samuel Streek, for committing a rape on the body of Mary Rackley, a child about twelve years of age; and John Girdler, for perjury, were dis- charged by proclamation. William Salisbury the elder and William Salis- bury the younger were convicted of violently assaulting; & c. Charles Sherwood of Shippon ; for which, after a severe reprimand from the Judge, they were sentenced to pay a large fine. A cause was heard on Tuesday at the Nisi Prius bar, in which Mr. Spencer, of Smithfield, Horse- dealer, was plaintiff, and Farmer Coggyn ot Begbrooke in Oxfordshire, defendant: the cause of action was as follows ; a servant of the plain- tiff had purchased two horses of the defendant in April last, for 541. both of which were war- ranted sound by the defendant; but in two or three days they both proved unsound, and application was made by Mr. Spencer, to the Farmer for re- compence, which was repeatedly refused : in the course of the trial which lasted six hours, it was fully proved to the satisfaction of the court, that the horses were unsound at the time they were sold.— The jury found a verdict for the plantiff, with 30l. damages and costs of suits. Wednesday another cause came on to be tried, wherein a post- chaise driver belonging to an inn here was plantiff, and an innkeeper ot Speen- hill, defendant : It appeared on the trial, that the plantiff had drove a chaise from his master's to the house of the defendant, on the 31st of Decem - ber last, where after staying sometime, he brought his horses out in order to return home, which the defendant would not permit him to do; an altercation ensuing, the defendant collared the plantiff and afterwards carried him before a ma- gistrate, by whom he was bound over to appear at the next quarter sessions, where he accordingly appeared and was acquitted; on which, he brought his action against the defendant, and obtained a verdict for 751. damages and costs. LONDON, March 5. The Lords yesterday read a first time the bill to make perpetual the former aCts for determin- ing contested elections by committees, HOUSE of COMMONS. Thursday, March 3. This day, about half after three, the second reading of the Selby and Leeds navigation bill came on in the House of Commons, when the question on the commit- ment of the faid bill occasioned a debate, which continued until within a few minutes of ten o'clock, when the House divided, ayes 33, noes 105. Sir George Saville opened the debate, and stated the whole matter from its commence- ment through its several stages. His speeeh took up two hours and ten minutes. He was seconded by Mr. Fuller, who were both replied to by Mr. Lascelles in favour of the bill. The other principal speakers on that side were Mr. Wallace, Mr. C. Fox, Mr. Turner, Mr. Cholmley, and Mr. Gilbert. Against the bill, Mr. E. Burke, Mr. Solicitor- General, Sir Cecil Wray, Sir Richard Sutton, and Mr. Lister. Mr. Turner spoke much in favour of the bill; said, he knew it was opposed by a party ; that the last time he was in the country, he saw a number of ladies canvassing at an assembly against the bill; that they applied to him to attend against the bill, but he was on the wrong side of forty- seven, and refused their request. Mr. E. Burke, in answer, said, that an ho- nourable member observed, that the canvassing among the ladies appeared strange to him. Sir, we are obliged to the ladies for forcing us, if nothing else can, to attend our duty in this House. This obligation we owe to those tender passions, the empire of which the honourable gentleman extended to forty- seven. But, Sir, does the honourable gentleman remember, that he has carried that empire seven years longer than another little— pretty— ingenious— witty gentleman did— Horace, who gives a period to them at forty. The tender passions, therefore, of that gentleman, have added seven years to their natural empire ; and the honourable gentleman owes them that great obligation, that to them he is indebted tor being for the first time an incor- rupt Member of Parliament. [ During this part of Mr. Burke's speech, the House was in a continued roar.] So, the arguments that have been used in favour of the present proposition, have run very counter to their end, and rather convinced us, that the bill ought not to be committed. Mr. Bayes tells us, that a play should have a begin- ning, a middle, and an end ; and this canal has much such a beginning, middle, and end, as Mr. Bayes's play. The beginning ot this canal, Sir, is a navigation without water; the middle is to answer a purpose that may be answered in a much cheaper manner; and the end is to join the canal to you know not what, to conduct it you know not where. It is to join another canal, but that canal is a project, and that project not executed. You were to make a canal without water, and when the committee, thirsty for want ct it, cried out for a drop to moisten their tongues, Yeomans was sent post- house to the mountains to measure springs in March, that water might no longer be wanted: Did he get it? Yes, but you were af- terwards told it was not to be depended upon ; not in the least. Thus one project was to depend on another, and that upon a third, and the pro- jects were to dance leap- frog on one another, in order to attain an end, which, when attained, was not worth a tenth of the trouble. An honourable member has explained the in- sufficiency of rivers; for my part, I am of a very different opinion, and think, that wherever rivers can be made navigable, they ought to be pre terred to canals. First, they run in the lowest grounds, and drain the whole country ; whereas canals are carried along hills, and if the banks break as they do sometimes, they drown the country; and if they do not break, they injure the lower grounds essentially. In Ireland, they give premiums tor draining bogs; but the great English improvers pride themselves on converting rich meadows into bogs! Next, Sir, the soil un- der rivers is lost; not so with canals, they cut thro', damage,' and destroy the richest countries. We have been told, that the march ot an engi- neer is as pernicious to the country as that ot a Tartarian army; they move but to destroy. Then, Sir, the beautiful gifts of God, the rivers scatter no dissention, they leave the country peaceable as they find it ; they do not sow the seeds of discord and fury ; they do not kindle parties in every parish navigationists and anti- navigationists— feud and discord have appeared in the train of the canallers; properly cut through and destroyed ; and at last, in some cases, no- thing done. For these reasons I prefer rivers; not that I would set bounds to human skill. There are many cases in which these navigations are excellent, and deserving every praise; but this is not one of these cases; and therefore I am against the commitment. The Newfoundland bread and biscuit bill has passed the committee, and is ordered to be re- potted. The bill for perpetuating Mr. Grenville's bill is ordered to be engrossed. Friday, March 4. This day the Speaker took the Chair at a quarter past two o'clock, several private bills and reports were received ; a messen- ger delivered in accounts from the Custom- house; likewise a messenger from the Excise- office, with an account of the duty on soap used in the wol- len manufactory for the last ten years. Sir Edward Astley's bill for making perpetual the trial ot controverted elections by Committee, was read a third time, and carried to the Lords. Lord North acquainted the House, that his Ma- jesty had signified a desire for the papers respecting the late unhappy disturbance at Boston, and other parts of America, to be laid before that House, and that he should present them on Monday next, and at the same time move an address to his Ma- jesty. Colonel Jennings said, he was much obliged to the noble Lord for acquainting the House of his intention, as his intended motion was for " an address to be presented to his Majesty, for leave to have the American papers laid before that House," that he would be understood not to have had any design by so doing, any otherwise than that the House might be thoroughly informed before they proceeded to that business. Mr. Dempster desired to know what address the noble Lord meant. Lord North said, it was only an usual complimen- tary address to his Majesty, tor his great good- ness and condescension in desiring those papers to be laid before the House. Colonel Barre said, he entirely agreed with th noble Lord, and sincerely hoped the papers might lay some time upon the table for inspection of the members. The House went into a committee of enquiry into the abuses committed in gaols, by detaining persons for their fees, Sir Thomas Clavering Chairman. Dr. Fothergill and Surgeon Potts were called in and asked their opinions 0n the gaol distemper they said, it proceeded from a number ot person being confined in a close place, and not kept clean that they recommended, as a preservative to the Courts of Judicature, for the prisoners to be well washed before they were brought into Court, and clean cloaths provided for them to appear in ; that they would recommend the prisons to be often cleaned, scraped, white- washed, and painted, and crave it us their opinion that it was the cloaths that carried the infection ; that the distemper was of a similar nature with the small pox, no person could have it more than once ; and that hot and cold baths would be of great service in prisons. Seve- ral questions were asked them, to which they re- plied in a very able manner. Colonel Onslow said, he Was often on Grand Juries, and should be glad to know if putting to- bacco up the nostrils would prevent the infection being caught. Dr. Fothergill answered, it was of no other use than stopping one of the passages by which you. might catch the infection ; but, unless you could likewise stop your mouth and ears, it would be of no service. Mr. Howard, Sheriff of Bedford, was called in, and gave the House a particular account of the impositions that were practised in the different gaols of this kingdom ; said he had travelled and seen 38 out of the 42, on purpose to make him- self master of the subject, and explain the abuses to the House ; he mentioned releasing a person himself on the first of last month out of Norwich gaol, who had been confined five weeks only on account of not being able to pay his fees, which amounted to thirteen shillings ; that at Mon- mouth gaol the Keeper, Deputy Keeper, and ten out ot eleven of the prisoners, lay now ill with the gaol distemper ; that the fees in most of the Western gaols were 1l. 8s. but in the county of York they were only eight shillings. He gave an account of the gaols in general being too close, which he imagined was in a great measure the cause of the distempers ; that another infamous practice subsisted in the gaols among the prisoners- themselves, which was, what they called, making a man pay his Garnish ; and that Keepers loaded those unhappy persons they imagined could pay with heavy irons, on purpose that they should give them money to put them on lighter. After he withdrew, Mr. Dempster moved, that the house should return thanks to Mr. Howard, for the great zeal he had shewn in endeavouring to find out the abuses that were committed in gaols. Colonel Barre, said he agreed with the honour- able member, that too much praise could not be given to so worthy a citizen. The bill " for the relief of prisoners acquitted " of the crimes laid to their charge, but detained " for the payment of their fees," was then filled up by the committee, and each county is to pro- vide a sufficient quantity of cloaths for prisoners to appear in on their trials. At five o'clock the order of the day for a fur- ther enquiry into the state of the linen manufac- ture was ordered to be read, on which Sir John Wrottesley desired, that it might be deferred for a day or two longer, as the American papers stood for Monday. Governor Pownal desired the same, as, he said, there were several other manufactures which were in great apprehensions from the decision on the linen manufacture; that there were now people in town to desire longer time, from a country where the woollen branch annually amounted to 3,195,000l. of which 2,000,000l, worth was an- nually exported ; that he thought so valuable a body ought to be heard General Conway opposed its being put off, and said, American affairs had nothing in the least to do with this ; that they had only four evidences to call in, to prove the state ot the linen trade in Ireland. The order of the day was then read, and tha House went into a committee, to enquire into the present state of the linen manufacture in Great Britain and Ireland, when the persons were exa- mined in respect to its present state in Ireland. Besides a general decrease in sales, a glut in the London market, and a great fall in the prices, their evidence went chiefly in proof of the follow- ing important faCts. Thar the export in linen, in 1771, was upwards of 25,000,00;) of : yards, ot m market was for the most part arrived, and by the most moderate computation, Would fall short 11,000,000 of yards; that 30,000 Emigrants, in the different branches of the Manufacture, had left the province of Ulster, to go to America and other places, within the last two years ; and that on an average, more than one third of the looms throughout, the kingdom were now idle. The Evidence being closed, the further consideration of this business was deferred till Wednesday next, and the House rose at nine o'clock. It is proper that every Englishman should be truly apprized of the monstrous inequality of our parliamentary representation. The late learned Brown Willis, Esq. has given us a complete view - of this enormous evil, which is thus briefly con- centred: " Taking the whole representative for South and North Britain, the members for Coun- ties are only 131 of the 552; of which 131, 42 are for Scotland and Wales. The members, therefore, - For the boroughs and Cinque- ports, which ought not to be one in ten compared with those for the counties, are 382, above four times as many. So that for ore member who may be supposed to come fairly into the House, four ( if we except a few for the great cities) are sent by the poorest peo- ple, directed by court influence. A certain popular member, with his usual good sense, was heard to say, relative to the printers, that he wondered, in this land of liberty and lite- rature, that any violence should be used, even in words, against the press, which if it decried the bad, equally applauded the good ; that in the Augustan age, scurrilous publications daily came out, inveighing against the Emperor more than any other person in the empire, which, when he was informed of, ( despotic as he was) made an- swer, " If I deserve the invective, I must reform ; - and if I do not, it must recoil on themselves; and it is punishnent enough to be branded with the epithet of a public, lying declaimer." A correspondent observes, that the saving in money, entertainments, & c. & c. to the several Candidates throughout the kingdom, at the gene- ral election, occasioncd by the happy conse- queuces of Mr. Grenville's Constitutional Act, will be immense ; not less, it's thought, than a million sterling. We are well informed, that the Premier ex- pressed himself, a few days since to this effect, that in the Budget, when it was opened, did not give satisfaction to the people in general, he would not only give up all public business at the end of this session, but forfeit his life." The President of a certainly assembly, we hear, is heartily sick of his situation ; but the Ministry are not only at a loss what to do with him, but who to appoint as his successor. It is said that a regiment of light horse is go- ing to be raised, which are to be called the Prince of Wales's blues. The Lord Chancellor has made an order, that the commissioners of bankrupts do, where a per- son becomes a bankrupt more than once, enquire very particularly into the cause of such failure, and the time since he was a bankrupt before, and certify the same to him ; his Lordship being de- termined, where there shall appear the least fraud, not to grant a certificate. The Lords of the Admiralty have ordered ten vessels, from 350 to 000 tons burthen-, to be taken up in the river on government account. An arch thing happened a day or two ago be- tween a young lad ot Eton School, and an old woman who sold gingerbread and cakes. The young spark having made free with the dame's gingerbread while the old woman's back was turned, and being discovered, was Very severely rated by her for making free with her property. The boy observing, that what he had taken was alphabet gingerbread, cried out, that she was mistaken, it was not her property ; for the House of Lords had lately determined, there was no such thing as Literary Property, and therefore lettered gingerbread was from thenceforth com- mon. On Wednesday last Elizabeth Mole, a poor vagrant woman, was sent away from Stower Payne, in Dorsetshire, in a very sick and weak condition, bv a pass under the hand and seal of George Chafin, Esq. one of the Justices of the . Peace for the county of Dorset, to Martin, in Wiltshire, in her way, to the city or York, she place of her settlement, and delivered or left at the house of the tythingman of Martin, the same evening; and because the poor woman was in- fected with vermine, she was put to lodge in a stable. The next morning, being in a very weak condition, she was put in a cart to be con- veyed on to Wallop, in Hampshire, but died on the road near Salisbury ; and being brought into WEDNESDAY's POST. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Naples, Feb. 8. THE eruption of Mount Vesuvius is at an end. Letters received trom Catania give an account, that on the 4th of last month there began a violent eruption from the sides of Mount Etna, in the middle region, about fourteen miles from that city ; and that large Stones had been thrown to the distance of four miles.

" You may depend that those odious miscreants and detestable tools to Ministry and Government, tea consigness ( those traitors to their country, butchers, who have done, and are doing every thing to murder and destroy all that shall stand in the way of their private interest) are determined to come and reside again in the town of Boston.

Last Wed- Newport, Rhode Isle nesday 57 Ladies, of Bedford, in Dartmouth, had a meeting, at which they entered into an agree- ment not to use any more India tea : And having heard that a gentleman there had lately bought some, they requested he would immediately return the same, which he complied with, upon which ihe Ladies treated him with a glass of this coun- try wine, and dismissed him, highly pleased with their exemplary conduct, for which a number ot gentlemen present gave him three cheers in ap- probation ot his noble behaviour. Read a first time, the bill to amend the Gene- ral Turnpike- act, and the Tottington inclosure bill. HOUSE of COMMONS. Monday, March 7. This day the Speaker took the chair at two o'clock, several private bills, & c. were received. Colonel Lechmere was sworn in Member for Worcester, and took his seat accordingly. Lord North said he had a message from his Majesty to present to the House, and desired leave to bring it up. It was read, setting forth, that of late several unhappy disturbances had arisen among his Subjects in America; that he had ordered such papers as could give any information of the proceedings to be laid before both Houses of Parliament, hoping to have their assistance in seeing the laws duly executed. Lord North then presented a bundle of papers respecting America, the heads ot which were read over, purporting to be letters to and from Massachusetts Bay, Boston, New Hampshire, & c. letters from Lord Barrington, Lord Hillsborough, Mr. Grey Cooper, & c. Mr. Rice moved, that an address be presented to his Majesty for his great goodness in ordering his message, and the American papers to be laid before that House, and to assure his Majesty that his faithful Commons would, without delay, ex- ert every means in their Power to see the laws duly executed in America, & c. He prefaced his motion with a long account of the rise and pro- gress of the American rebellious proceedings, and was much for using spirited measures to bring them to a compliance Lord Clare said, he agreed with the Honoura- ble Gentleman, and hoped he should find this measure carried thro' with unanimity ; he should therefore second the motion. Mr. Dowdeswell spoke greatly against the pro- priety of measures that had been heretofore adopted, and said, let those wise heads who brought us into the trouble now extricate us. He was very severe on administration throughout his speech. Col. Jennings said he should object to the words " every means," and should move an amendment, that '' proper means." Mr. Ellis said nearly the same as Mr. Rice, and was for spirited measures being used. Mr. E. Burke desired his Majesty's speeches from 1768 to 1770, and the answers, might be read, ( all which tended to America,) and the last answer was nearly the same as the present address proposed, setting forth. that his faithful Com- mons would, without delay, exert every means, & c. He laid he had looked carefully over the journals, and could not find one measure that Parliament adopted that session although they promised his Majesty ; he should therefore be against their promising again, unless he was sure they meant to perform. Mr. Solicitor General said it was not right to re- criminate on persons that had done wrong here- tofore. He observed, that the matters that would come before the House, in the examination ot this great question, were no less than this Is America any longer to be dependant on this country ? How far is it to be connected or depen dant ? To what degree ? In what manner? And among other questions, it will certainly ' arise, whether the subordination ot the colonies should the city dead, the Coroner's jury sat on her body, and gave a verdict, That the death of the woman was hastened, for want of due care and proper necessaries, while under the direction ot the tythingman of Martin, and from his forwarding herwhile in so languishing a condition COUNTRY NEWS. Worcester, March 1. This morning the Sheriff attended an adjourned Court, for the purpose or entering on the Scrutiny demanded by Sir Watkin Lewes, but neither he, or any agent of his, was present to go on with it; the Sheriff, therefore, proceeded to make his return, and declared Ni- cholas Lechmere, Esq; duly elected by a majority of 104 legal voters, numbers as under, Nicholas Lechmere, Esq; 796 Sir Watkin Lewes 692 Winchester, March 5;. Yesterday the assizes for this county ended here, when Robert Ruffin, alias Russin, for stealing a bay mare, and James Fleming, for stealing a gelding and a poney, re- ceived sentence of death, but were afterwards reprieved.— John Rook, for stealing a snuff- box; John Burry, for stealing a shirt; William Ben- nett, for dealing a fat hog; George Hatchman, and Philip Benton, for stealing a quantity of shirts and stockings; William Fielder, for steal- ing a watch; and Rob. Farr, for stealing two great coats, were ordered to be transported for seven years. Charles M'Closky was found guilty of assaulting Cecilia Skinner, but not with an intent to commit a rape, and ordered to be imprisoned two months. Thursday was tried before Mr. Justice Aston by a special jury, a cause wherein Sir Frederick Evelyn, Bart.' was plaintiff, and William Courte- nay and Richard James Lawrence, Esqrs. de- fendants: The action was brought against the defendants, as stewards of last Basingstoke races ; for the recovery of a 50l. plate, paid to his Grace the Duke of Bolton, as the owner ot the running horse named CHOSE, which beat the plaintiff's horse CURATE, and Several others; but the plate as claimed by the plaintiff as his right, under a plea of his horse which was second, being crossed the Duke's in running the last heat. After a very full hearing, and examination on both sides, the jury, without going out of Court, found a verdict for the defendants. LONDON, March 8. Yesterday Lord Dartmouth presented to the House of Peers, several papers relative to the late disturbances in America, which were ordered to be taken into consideration on Tuesday se'nnight, and the Lords to be summond.— An address to his Majesty was moved and agreed to. not be given up? It Parliament cannot enforce obedience, it ought certainly to enquire the con- sequences of its failure ; but at all events, it is what Gentlemen should attend to in the most serious manner. To enter into the consideration dispassionately, with temper and sobriety— that conviction may become the only mother of the resolutions we may come to. He said, the ques- tions would be extensive, complicated, and, per- haps, dubious; it would, therefore, certainly demand the most ardent attention. Mr. E. Burke, in a speech for near an hour and a half, set forth the absurdity of the proceedings concerning America heretofore, saying, were we to expect any good from the same persons who adopted those measures ? He said, we wanted a change of Governors both at home and abroad ; and was extremely severe on the noble Lord ( North) and Administration, and arraigned the whole of their conduct. On recapitulating the whole of the Stamp Act, he said, before they pre- sented their address, promising to redress evils, it would be more praliamentary to enquire whe- ther thofe abuses existed ; as to recriminating, learn trom experience what good might be pro- duced. Lord Germaine said, in his opinion, our repeal- ing the Stamp Act had made the Americans think we had no right to tax them, and in a great mea- sure was the cause of our present misfortunes. Mr. E. Burke replied to him. General Conway, in a short, but masterly speech, set forth the nature of proceedings heretofore, and said in his opinion, had the Stamp Act not been repealed, we should entirely have lost Ame- rica ; he said, we must now come to a resolution, either to tax or not to tax America ; in his opi- nion we had no right to tax them ; that they were a loyal people, as might be seen by their former conduct. Mr. W. Burke spoke much in favour of the Americans. Colonel Barre, in a spirited speech, arraigned the ill advice of using spirited measures, and said, ' their being thus factious, proved more strongly, that they were bone of our bone, and flesh of our flesh. Lord North said, as the time allotted for the reading the papers was Thursday, but as there- were more of them than he first imagined, he had no objection to postponing the reading of them, until Friday next, and on Monday next to resolve, upon them. The question concerning the address was put and carried' A plan has been proposed to government, for the consolidating of all the duties received at the Custom- House, which it carried into execution will be of the utmost utility to the trading part of this nation. Last Friday was presented to the House of Commons a petition of the Mayor, Bailiffs Commonalty of the City of Exeter, in Chamber assembled, and read; setting forth that the pe- titioners are informed that a bill is intended be brought in. to lay an additional duty on all foreign linens imported into this kingdom ; and that the petitioners are apprehensive that such an additional duty will greatly affect and injure the woollen trade of this kingdom in general, and distress the inhabitants of the said city in particu- lar ; and therefore praying the House to take the same into their consideration ; and the House will resolve itself Into a Committee of the whole House on Wednesday next, to consider further into the present state of the linen trade in Great Britain and Ireland, A third election tor a Member for Worcester is said to be unavoidable. Sir Watkin Lewes set out on Friday morning tor Worcester. The following regiments are ordered abroad ; the 20th, 33d, 15th, and 37th, arc to go to Ire- land; the two former to embark at Plymouth, on the 10 of April ; and the two latter, which are' in North Britain, to embark at Port- Patrick on the 14th of the same month. The 4th, 5th, 38th, aud 43d, are to go to America, to relieve the 1oth, 14th, 52d, and 59th. The 4th, and 43d, to embark at Plymouth, on the 5th of April, and- the 15th, and 38th, at Corke, at the same time. f Petitions from persons under confinement for debt in the several gaols in the kingdom, are pre- paring to be preferred to a Great Personage on a persuasion that it is in the power of thecrown to enforce a general act of grace on a late auspicious- occasion. At a General Meeting of the Subscribers to New Lloyd's coffee- house, on Friday night last, agreeable to public notice, it was, amongst other matters, unanimously resolved, " that as the common method of insuring lives upon ( pecula- tion, and without any particular interest, was contrary to the laws of humanity, and subversive of the rules of society, such practices should be ever held in the utmost abhorrence by the sub- scribers." After which it was likewise unani- mously resolved, that such resolution should be put in large gilt letters, in the most conspicuous part ot the coffee- house. The above resolution does particular honour to the gentlemen who have entered into it, as the infamous practice which it goes to eradicate, not only often created the greatest misfortunes in private families, but was besides a national disgrace. Letters from Warsaw mention advices having arrived there, of a victory obtained by General Bibikow over the rebels at Casan. By a royal edict, published at Potsdam the 15th of February, all the sugar that shall be im- ported to Silesia, from any foreign country, is to pay twelve per cent, duty, and that which shall enter Poland is to pay eight per cent, a circum- stance which will be very detrimental to the mer- cantile states.

They have also a sort ot potters clay, absolutely necessary to the making furnaces and instruments for melting metals, and for chymical experiments, which before was obliged to be purchased at Cologne.

London: Printed for R. Snagg, at Pater- Noster- Row; and sold by Hodson and Johnson, Of whom New Editions of the Two Monday by Lord North, signed by his Ma- jesty. " His Majesty, upon information of the un- warrantable practices which have been lately COn- certed and carried on in North America, and par- ticularly of the violent and outrageous proceed- ing at the town and port of Boston, in the pro- vince of Massachusett's Bay, with a view to ob- structing the commerce of this kingdom, and upon grounds and presences immediately subver- sive ot the constitution thereof, has thought fit. to lay the whole matter before his two Houses of Parliament fully confiding as well in their zeal as for the maintenance of his Majesty's authority, us in their attachment to the common interest and welfare of all his dominions, that they will not only enable his Majesty effectually to take such measures as may be most likely to put an imme- diate stop to the present disorder, but will also take into their most serious consideration what further regulations , and permanent provisions may be necessary to be established, for better se- curing the execution of the laws, and the just dependance of the colonies upon the crown and parliament of Great Britain. Yesterday the Speaker took the chair at two o'clock, several private bills, & c. were received Lord Falkstone made his report from the Com- mittee which sat on Tuesday, on the " poor bill." Mr. Graves moved that the third might be on this day se'nnight. Mr. Gilbert opposed it, and said that he should wish to send it down to the country, for every justice to see and give his opinion upon : he complained against the bill in its present form, and moved that the second reading be on the 20th of April. Mr. Ongley spoke nearly the same; said, by that time, the Quarter Sessions would be over, at which place the justices would have met, and had time to deliver their sentiments; he should therefore second Mr. Gilbert. Sir Charles Bunbury, in a short but severe speech, said, was the bill to contain any bad or new principles, gentlemen might be alarmed, but it was only meant to allow the same privilege to every person, as was usually allowed to soldiers, sailors, Irish, & c. He spoke in favour ol the bill, and seconded Mr. Graves. Mr. R. Whitworth, in a masterly speech, let forth the absurdity of putting it off; said the bill was brought in last session, and had been in most of this, which certainly was allowing time enough for any persons to give their opinion. Sir Cecil Wray spoke much against the bill Mr. Henry Cavendish proposed a middle way between the 17th of March and the 20th of April for the third reading. Mr. Graves- defended his bill in a very able manner, and said that justices had time enough to peruse it; for last year he caused printed copies to be dispersed all over the different counties, and this year he did not present it until there was a full House, on purpose that it might have a fair chance: that he should never fear its succeeding in a full House, and dreaded nothing but its be- ing put off until the end of the session, when but few members Would attend. Several other members spoke much in favour ot the bill, and on the questions being put it was carried without a division. The order of the day for a further enquiry into the state of linen trade was then read. Governor Pownal said he had evidence, which, he could produce which would shew how mate- rially this enquiry would affect the woollen trade. He was answered by Mr. R. Whitworth, Gen. Conway, See. who urged, that this was not a pro- per time for such enquiry. Evidences were called in from the counties of Wilts, Dorset, Hants, and Somerset, who proved that the linen trade had been on the decline of late years; that near one half of the looms were f unemployed, and the consequence was, that the manufacturers were drove to great necessity, and many of them became burthensome to the parish. They were examined as to the growth of flax, and asked, how much an acre would produce- ? The answer was, on an average 255lb. which sold at 9d or 9d. hahper. my per pound ; that the ground was 20s. per acre, it cost 20s, more to be cultivated fit for lowing, and the feed and labour after about 20s. more, which made the whole expence on one acre 3l,. That the growth of flax was more beneficial to the farmer than wheat, although the ground did not bear flax every year; the ground the first year bore flax, the feeo . d wheat, the third barley, the fourth oats, and the fifth grass, or lay fallow.— They were asked their opinions, If laying a duty on foreign linens would enable them to sell their linens cheaper ? The answer was, The price was too low already. — It laying a duty on foreign linens would not make the prices of British linens dearer i N0 direct answer was given. Sir George Saville was asked the other day how he could be so inattentive to his own interest as to lose so much money by not following the example of other gentlemen in raising his rents ? Sir George, with a truly noble spirit, answered, " I never did, nor never shall think that those are worthy of the name of gentlemen whose great delight is in distressing the poor and industrious, and squeezing out of them their substance, to be squandered away in luxuries. For my part t had rather lose my rents than the affections of the people, am always happiest wheu I can admini- ster relief." Yesterday, about twelve o'clock, Mr. Miller was taken in execution, at the suit of Lord Sand- wich, for the whole damages given him by a late verdict, and immediately carried to the Poultry Compter. Intelligence from the Public 0ffice in Bow street. Yesterday Mary Gould charged Henry Philips with having feloniously ravished her, and had carnal knowledge of her against her will and con- lent. Lord Pomtret was present at the ex- amination, and spoke to the matter. It appeared that the fact was committed in the lodgings of his Lordship; that the girl had informed her mistress, and had been advised by her to keep her own secret, and go into the country, and say that the London air did not agree with her. The prisoner, in his defence, alledged that he had twice before enjoyed her; that the fact was done with her consent, and that he had n0 inten- tion to force her. As the girl persisted in the charge, she was bound over to prosecute Captain Cauldwell gave an account of his house being robbed, and that, from several suspicious circumstances, it was probable he had been either robbed by his own servant, or that he had let in some body to commit the robbery. The matter was postponed till a future day. MARLBOROUGH, March 11 . On Saturday last the Mayor of this borough went, with his officers, into the butter- market, where, he seized more than 1 cwt. of butter be- ing deficicient of 18 oz, to the lb. which he af- terwards distributed to the poor. In consequence of a petition from the Gentle- men, Clergy, and Farmers of this county, setting forth the hardship and inconvenience of a clause in the general Turnpike Act, passed the last session, for regulating the width of the wheels, and the length of carriages, liable to be weighed by the said act,— we are well assured the clause will be speedily repealed; the bill before the House of Commons for that purpose, being in great forwardness. ' Wednesday se'nnight was married at St. Ni- cholas Church, Bristol, the Rev. Mr. C. Garrard, of Ramsbury, to Mrs. Turner, a widow lady of that city aged 73. On Monday last was married at Great Bedwin, in this county, William Morgan, aged 84, to Ann Collins, aged 64. About a week ago, died Mrs. Smith, wife of Mr. Rich. Smith, of Chippenham, and about five days after one of her sons, about 30 years of age, died of a lingering consumption. Wednesday as a Farmer's man near Sodbury was attempting to pass a bank to avoid the water, which was very much out, the bank gave way, and four horses were drowned. Our accounts from all parts agree, that the waters have not been known s'o high for many years. This week the assizes for this county were held at Salisbury, but we had received no authentic ac- count from thence when this paper went to press. [ Price of Stocks the same as last week.] To the PRINTER, SIR, I FIND by the public- prints that a bill is again brought into Parliament this Sessions to pre- vent frivillous and vexatious removals of the poor, and I am told that the purport of the bill is to re- strain tbe Justices from removing any pauper un- til they actually become chargeable. Permit me, through the channel of your paper, to offer a few hints founded on some little experience in these matters. I think the evils that will arise from such an act Parliament will be greater than those intended to be removed. One will be, the unsettled wan- dering of many poor from place to place, where a little higher wages may be obtained, without any long continuance, and neglecting a steady course of industry and labour, fo needful in all kinds of husbandry and manufacturing business, and as necessary now ( the scarcity of workmen in ge- neral being great) as it could possibly be when it was thought proper to pass the act of the 13th and 14th of Charles II. chap. 12, to prevent such wandering of the poor. The strong desire of all mankind to be maintained with as little la- bour as possible, will stimulate them to this shift- ing about, when they may rove at large into any parish, if they can keep themselves from asking relief. There will be great hardships on parishes having bastard children settled on them by such poor, not being able to remove them. The op- portunity parishes will have to impose on one another, by sending unmarried poor women with child to lie- in in other parishes than those to which they belong, will of course be a subject of much bickering and dispute. Indeed, I think there will be many other inconveniences besides these. Yet, unquestionably as the matter now stands, very great injury in many instances is done to indus- trious honest people. But I have no doubt the magistrates have it now in their power, in a great measure, to prevent such injurious removals, by withholding their consent, and not removing the poor but where there is good reason to suppose the pauper must soon be chargeable ; although I know the practice to be otherwise, and that the Justices rather act ministerially in removals, only satisfying themselves the best way they can to what parish the pauper belongs._ It an act were passed declarative of a power in the magistrates, not only to judge and determine of the parish to which the pauper belongs, but also to judge and determine of the likelihood of their being chargeable, and propriety of removal, and that all certificate persons and their descen- dants should be eligible to gain settlements not only in the parishes certified, but in any other parish, in the same manner as other uncertified poor may, I think every evil I have heard com- plained of would be obviated ; no parish will then object to the giving certificates, nor a proper object applying be in any danger of a frivolous or vexations removal without remedy of appeal. If any of these hints are of service to the community, I hope you and the public will pardon me the trouble, you of publishing, they of reading. I am, Sir, & c. A Story related by Bishop Latimer, in a Sermon against Corruption. THERE was a patron in England that had a benefice fallen into his hands, and a good brother of mine came unto him, and brought him thirty apples in a dish, and gave them to his man to carry them to his master. It is like he gave one to his man for his labour, to make up the game, and so there was thirty- one. This man cometh to his master, and presented him with the dish of apples, saying, " Sir, such a man hath sent you a dish of fruit, and desireth you to be good unto him for such a benefice."—" Tush, tush, ( quoth he) this is no apple- matter; I will have none of his apples ; I have as good as these in mine own orchard." The man came to the priest again, and told him what his master said. Then ( quoth the priest) desire him to prove one of them for my sake, he shall find them bet- ter than they look for." He cut one of them, and found ten pieces of gold in it. " Marry ( quoth he) this is a good apple." The priest standing not far off, hearing what the gentleman said, cried out and answered, " They are all one apple, I assure you, Sir; they all grew on one tree, and have all one taste."—" Well he is a good fellow, let him have it (" quoth the patron) and get you a graft of this tree, and I'll warrant it will stand you in better stead than all St. Paul's learning." Origin of the Stuart Family, taken from Lilly's History of Charles the First. KING Charles, in one ot his letters to his Queen, calls Fairfax, the General of the Parliament, their brutish General. Assuredly the progenitors of the Lord Fairfax were gentlemen, and of good estates then, and at what time the ancestors of the Stuarts were but poors stewards unto a family in Scotland; and what a preferment it is or was some 300 years fince, to be bailiff or steward unto a Scottish family, let the whole world judge : for this was the true original of the rise and growth of the family of the Stuarts, and no other, though fince, by marriage, they came to be Kings of Scotland ( as their own chronicles relate.;" Lilly's Life and Death of King Charles the First. P. 184— 5. By his MAJESTY'S PATENT. IT is daily and voluntarily acknowledged by Persons of all Ranks, that the STOMACH- PILLS, ( made up of' the mozt valuable Simples) are the best Re- medy yet discovered for Complaints in the Stomach and Bowels, either of long standing or newly contracted, from any natural Weakness, or from want of a proper Supply of the alimenta Juices, or from the bad Qualities of some So its of Food or Drink, any of which Causes often bring on Indigestion, want of Appetite, Oppressions by Wind, Head- Achs, Costiveness, and that dangerous Disorder the BILIOUS CHOLIC, in all which Complaints these Pills afford singular Relief; they are the best Physic in some Female Complaints, and they have been found of great Service in ill- formed Gouts, in Ruptures, and in prevent- ing the Dropsy and Jaundice; they are never uneasy to the Stomach, and when it is so much disordered as not to be able to Relish the most innocent Diet, they strengthen it, so as it can with Ease and great Safely digest any usual Food or Drink. The Stomach Pills are prepared and sold at 1s. 6d. per Box, with Directions, signed by James Speediman, the Proprietor, at the Pine- Apple in the Strand, London, and by his Appointment they are sold by E. Harold, in Marl- borough ; R. Crutwell, Mr. Frederic, and J. Gibbons, in Bath; T. Cocking, in Bristol; and T. Burrough, at the Devizes; also in all the principal Places in Great- Britain. Dr. ANDeRSON's GIFTTRITA SCOTS PILLS ARE prepared by the fole proprietor JAMES INGLISH, at the Unicorn, No/ 165, oppolite the NEW CHURCH in the STRAND, LONDON. Near ,150 Years Experience has proved this Medicine to be extremely ufefui in Diforders of the STOMACH and BOWELS, particularly in BILLIOUS and DROPSICAL Com plaints, INDIGESTION, after Hard Drinking, SUR- FEITS, Want of APPETITE or SLEEP, and all OB- STRUCTIONS. One or Two Pills taken Twice a Week, or oftener, will prevent the SCURVY.— It will keep its Virtues many Years, and in all Climates; is therefore the beft Mctlicine for Seafaring People.— It is very ufeful in Difortlers peculiar to Women, particularly at a certain advanced Time of Life; and may be taken with great Safety and Advantage during rhe whole Time of Preg- nancy.— It deftroys WORMS; indeed they cannot breed in the Bodies of thofe who frequently take this Pill.— It i6 fo efficacious and gentle, that it may be taken from Infancy to extreme old Age, by both Sexes.— It does hot always purge, in Dropfical Habits, and very fevere Colds, only operating by Urine or Sweat. A greater Proof of the Excellency of this Medicine can- not be given than that the Gentlemen of the Faculty take it often: The late celebrated Phyfician Sir EDWARD HujLSEt, Bart, was fo fully convinced of the great Utility of it, that he gave Mr. INGLISH a Certificate, recom- mending it as a very ufeful Family Medicine. There arc many Counterfeits ; fom$ have copied Mr, INGLISH'S Dire& ions, which are Dr. ANDERSON'S own Words, taken from his Latin Treatife whith he wrote on the Virtues of this Medicine, and is in the Poftefiion of Mr. INGLISH only; which Treatife and Certificate he is willing to ihew to any Gentleman who may be defirous to fee them. Some ride the Countries in his Name, and falfely fay they are Partners with him: He never had any Partner, nor ever allowed any One to take Orcers for him. — For thefe Reafons he troubles the Public with this Ad- vertifement. To prevent thefe shameful Impositions Mr. INGLISH figns all his Directions with his Name, and no other are Genuine: He requests of thofe who are willing to ferve their Neighbours in Country Towns with this Medicine to favour him with their Orders by Post. LIKEWISE, Pillula. Leydenensis OR the LEYDEN PILL; Calculated entirely to eradicate the most inveterate SCURVY, & c. The great Boerhaave, to whom we are indebted for this invaluable Medicine, was no less eminent as a Physician than distinguished for his Humanity. It was by this ex- cellent Pill he performed those astonishing Cures that esta- blished his Fame; and by which he eradicated those dreadful Disorders to which the inhabitants of this Island are particularly subject, viz. the Scurvy and Rheumatism, which yield at once to its superior Virtue ; also those painful Symptoms that remain after the partial Cure of the Venereal Disease with its Attendants, nocturnal Pains, and Thickness of the Membranes, By the Use of this incomparable Medicine they are totally dispersed, even after the Constitution has been injured by Mercury and other ill Treatment. It is therefore unnecessary to say that it cures the Dis- orders itself. More than this need not be said to Persons of Delicacy, and less could not be said in Justice to the Reputation of the great Inventor of it, as it differs from all other nauseous Medicines. A small tasteless pill is a Dose. It surprisingly raises the Spirits, and acts imper- ceptibly, operating chiefly in the Night. It has the dis- tinguishing Virtue of having Success where all other Methods have failed, and that by taking two Boxes only. They are sold by J. BROWN, in Wardrobe- Court, Doctors- Commons, and no where else in London; and by his Appointment by E. Harold, in Marlborough, in Boxes of 5s. 3d. each, with proper Directions, each of which will be signed by the Vender with his own Hand Writing to prevent Counterfeits,. They retain their Virtue in all Climates. ALSO, A Fresh Instance of the EFFICACY of the RESTORATIVE MEDICINE, PREPAREd by J. HAMILTON- SMYTH, M. D. and Man Midwife, of George- sheet,. York Buildings, in the Strand, LONDON. The Case of CHARLES BENSON, Esq S I R, BEING thoroughly recovered from almost an insupportable Weakness and relaxed State, bv taking your RESTORATIVE MEDICINE, 1 thought I was in Duty bound to make you this public Acknowledgement-. I fancy my own Imprudence laid the Foundation of my Disorder, for which I took the Bark, Preparations of Steel, and many other Medicines, but to no Effect, till my Physician desired me to apply to you ; and, for the Benefit I have received, depend I will not only- ever hold a grateful Sense of, but endeavour to promote your Interest to the utmost of my Power. I am, Sir, your most humble Servant, C. BENSON. Bath, Dec. 16, 1773. . In the Course of many Years Practice, innume- rable Instances have indisputably proved the stengthening and cordial Effects of this Medicine in all Weaknesses Debilities, whether Natural or acquired by that hein- ous Vice Self- pollution, too early or excessive Venery, mer- curial 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, comforted, and prolonged. The Causes of Impotency in one Sex, and Barreness in the other, have been eradicated by this Medicine. The great Boerhaave says, " from an ill- cured and " imprudent Venery, arise Pains in the Head or Limbs, " Eruptions, Gleets, Weaknesses of the whole Frame, " Dimness of Sight, with a Tribe of nervous Complaints, " which generally terminates in a Consumptioa." The Restorative is to be had in Bottles at 10s. 6d. with full Directions, of E. Harold, Printer, in Marlborough; and of the Doctor, at his House in George- Street, York- Buildings, in the Strand, London, who may be consulted Personally or by Letter, if Post- paid. N. B.

ALSO, MAREDANT's DROPS, For the S C U R V Y and LEPROSY, Prepared by JOHN NORTON, Surgeon. To Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, in Golden- Square, London. SIR, Cambridge, August 6, 1773. IN Justice to your Medicine, and for the Good of Mankind I am induced to make public a Cure, which your Maredant's Drops effected on me. Know, then, Sir, I had for many Years been more or less tormented with a scorbutic Disorder, attended w: rh frequent Eruptions, variously interspersed, till at length my whole Frame was attacked. 1 was covered with Blotches and an universal Scurf, at- tended with a perpetual scalding Humour, which discharged itfelf from my Head. An Aching in all ray Bones, a general Laxity of Constitution, Lowness of Spirits, and various other Symptoms, that occasioncd Nothing less than the Expectation of a speedy Dissolution ; but, being fortu nately recommended to try your Drops, I bogan them ; and, by persevering some Time, my Complaints were re- moved, so that I now enjoy a perfect State of Health. I am your obedient humble Servant, JOHN BRAMPTON. Any Perfon, ftill doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medicine, may ( by applying to Mr. Norton, Surgeon, the Well- fide of Golden- sguare, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where thefe Drops are fold in Bottles at 6s. each"! be fully convinced of their good Effects, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprofy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder ariling from a Foulness in thej Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the leaft Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite.— None are genuine but what are figaed by John Norton, in his own Hand- Writing. N. B.

HAROLD, Printer, Bookfellrr, and Stationer, and W. Crouch, in Marlborough ; Mr. Burrough, in Devizes; Mr. Willis, in Newbury; and by the Diftri- butors of this Journal. 44+ Beware of Counterfeits.— Maredant's Drops, so uni- versally known and esteemed, were never sold for less than Six SHILLINGS the Bottle. Mr. NORTON having lately discovered that his Bottles, Bills of Direction, together with his Hand- Writ- ing, have been counterfeited, in order to impose on the Pub- lic a spurious Medicine for his ( Maredant's) Drops, be therefore hopes, for their Health's Sake, they will be ex- tremely cautious of whom they buy them.

By his MAJESTY'S Royal Letters Patent. Dr. BATEMAN's Pectoral Drops, Prepared by DICEY, and OKELL, in Bow- Church- Yard, London, WHICH, for more than Sixty Years, have been universally known to be the safest and surest Relief in the most acute Rheumatisms, ( as many Thousands have lately experienced) Pains in the Breast, Limbs and Joints, Fluxes, Agues, flow and latent Fevers; a single Dose remarkably stops the Progress of a Cold, and certainly prevents the ill Consequcnces arising from that very common Disorder, the Fore- runner of almost all Distempers. They are also very serviceable in many other Diseases, which will appear in the Book of their Virtue and Cures, to be borrowed at every true Vender's. The great Reputation these Pectoral Drops ( when bought at the above Original Warehouse) have most deservedly gained has encouraged divers designing and unfair Traders to counterfeit them, making Use of the Seal and Names of the said DICEY and OKELL, who, for the Public, Good, prose- cuted, and had Judgment given them, wilh considerable Costs and Damages, against Thomas Jackson, ( removed near the Fleet- market) and Joseph Russel, in Queen- street, Cheapside, and others in London ; as will fully appear in the Bill of Directions given with our Bottles, wherein is shewn the Manner how the above, and such like Counterfeits, impose upon the Public, to the Hazard of tbe Health if not the Lives of those who take such Trash, The Original Dr. RADCLIFFE's ELIXIR- AS Health is one of the greatest Blessing that attend Mankind, so we should be extremely care- ful to purchase Medicines prepared by Men of Fortune and Veracity, which are and have been known to answer tbe great and good Designs of their Inventor such a Medicine is that of Dr. RADCLIFFE's famous purg- ing ELIXIR, which daily adds to the Character of that great Man, whose Name will live as long as the World endures; it far exceeding any Medicine yet experienced, both in Quality and Quantity, being not of the Nature; of those sweet Slops sold by this or that Name about the Kingdom, where the Sick are obliged to take four or five. Ounces, or five or six nauseous Pills, which render Physic so obnoxious, that Thousands puke at the Sight of either Phial or Pill- box ; but, on the contrary, it is a fine Bitter, which is the most grateful Taste to them that have Occa- sion for Physic ; and it is reduced into so small a Quantity, that a Spoonful proves a sufficient Dose in most Constitu- tions, requiring no Confinement, nor does it leave the Body bound, but givs two or three Stools the succeeding Day, working so kindly, and by Ways to familiar to Na- ture, that you would bless yourself to feel its wonderful Effects : Therefore, it is a pity any Family should be unacquainted with its Virtues, all Persons of Sense agree- ing in this one Point, that it is the very best of Purges to cleanse the Body of all gross and vicious Humours con- tracted by hard Drinking, Surfeits, Colds, Measles, or Small- Pox. It destroys all Manner of Worms in Children a or grown Persons, gives present Ease in the Cholic, Wind, and cures the Scurvy, Dropsy, Itch, and all run- ning Sores or Breakings out whatsoever. It is great Success in the Black and Kings Evil, Yellow Jaun- dice, swelling of the Face and Gums, bad Breath, Deaf- ness ( provided the Ears run). It cures the Head- ach and Heartburn, helps Digestion, dissipates Vapours sudden Faintings, procures a strong Appetite, prevents vomitting. reaching in the Morning, Gripes and Pains in tbe Bowels, Difficutly of Breathing, Morning Sweats, and strengthens the Nerves, and there is no better Medicine in the World to prevent those Diseases which commonly attend Persons at Sea, occasioned by bad Air, Diet, & c. therefore that undertake long Voyages or Journeys ought not to be without it, or omit taking it every Spring and Fall .— The Price ( for the Advantage of the Poor) but Twelve Pence, though well worth Twelve Shillings A Book of its Use and Virtues to be sent, well worth the Perusal of the most curious.— Good Allowance is made to those who sell it again.
