VOL. LXI. MONDAY, August 5, 1782. 3147 T H U R S D A Y's P O S T. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Admiralty- Office, July 30, 1782. sjqjojososok Letters were this day received WW at this office from Vice- Admiral Sir w Peter Parker, giving an account of < 5 L Q his arrival yesterday at Spithead, in his Majesty's ship the Sandwich, )&)$( having on the 20th instant detached a frigate with such of the trade as 7K7K7KKK7K came under his convoy from Ja- maica, as were bound into the Bristol and St. George's Channels, and sent the remainder to the Downes, under convoy of two ships of the line. Whitehall, July 30. The King has been pleased to present the Rev. Copleston Radcliffe, Master of Arts, to the rectory of Stoke Clymesland, in the county of Cornwall and diocese of Exeter, void by the death of the Rev. Mr. Willoughby Stainsbury. In this day's Gazette appear the following Irish promotions— Dr. Bourke, bishop of Ferns, is trans- lated to the archbishoprick of Tuam.— Dr. Cope, bi- shop of Clonfert, is translated to Ferns ; and Dr. Law is promoted to the bishoprick of Clonfert. [ Thus far London Gazette.] Arrived the Mails from HOLLAND, FRANCE, and FLANDERS. Paris, July 19. Mr. Clonard hath brought a full confirmation of the important news that all the States of the American Republics have, after the example of Maryland, resolved to reject every proposal for a se- parate peace with England, even though the latter should consent to acknowledge fully their indepen- dence. Ratisbon, July 17. It is said here that the minister of a certain belligerent power, conversing with the Emperor on the present war, observed to him, that if his Imperial Majesty was willing to take a part therein, he would meet with an excellent opportunity of extending his frontiers. That Monarch replied, • " I have neither occasion nor desire to enter into a " war with any power. All my cares are confined to the happiness of my subjects." LONDON, Tuesday, July 30. Yesterday one of the lieutenants of the Formida ble arrived at the Admiralty with dispatches from Lord Rodney, dated the 10th of June, containing an ac- count of the sailing of the Jamaica fleet, and the course he had directed them to steer in order to avoid ' the enemy's cruizers. His Lordship mentions his de- sign of returning to St. Lucia, having fixed the sailing of his squadron from Port Royal, on the 15th of June, his stay there being no longer necessary, as he had re- ceived undoubted intelligence, that most of the Spanish troops, which were collected at Cape Francois for their long intended descent on Jamaica, were all re- embarked and returning to the Havannah. When the officer came away with the said dispatches, the British fleet lying in Port Royal harbour consisted of 35 ships of the line, Rear Admiral Lord Hood be- ing returned' from his cruize off the Cape, without having been able to meet with any of the enemy's ships. No force had been sent against Curassoa. Only three ships of the line were then at sea, two of which, the Royal Oak and Prothee, were cruizing with Rear Admiral Sir Francis Drake to the northward of Ja- maica, and one with Rear Admiral Rowley, viz. the London, off Tiberoon.— Lord Rodney's health was such as had obliged him to retire into the mountains for the benefit of the air, in consequence of which the command of the fleet had devolved on Lord Hood. His Lordship had heard nothing of his recall when the Lieutenant sailed, which was on the 13th of June. The fleet were all in high health and spirits. .. . The Jamaica fleet just arrived, sailed the 25th of May, under convoy of the Sandwich, ot 90 guns; Russel, of 74; and Intrepid, of 64. By the arrival of the Jamaica fleet, 4000 seamen . will be obtained ; these, with a proportionate number ' of landsmen, will be sufficient to equip 10 sail of the line. We may therefore expect to see the Blenheim of 90 guns, the ' Princess Royal of 98, and many other capital ships, which only waited for hands, join the grand fleet. Yesterday morning Lieutenant Cooke arrived at the Admiralty with dispatches from Commodore Sir Richard Bickerton, dated off Rio de Janeiro ( a Portuguese harbour in the Brazils, on the coast of . South America) the 5th of May, which place he quitted with the cutter which brought off his dispatches, in order to proceed on his voyage to India. The Com That the Dutch fleet have left the Texel, the Winchelsea and other cruizers have given full infor- mation ; but as they bent their course to the north- ward, and have not been seen upon our coasts, it is imagined that they are convoying their West- India fleet so far to the westward of Ireland, as to leave them free from apprehensions of the British cruizers. Whether they will afterwards proceed to join the com- bined fleets, or return to guard their own coasts and Baltic trade, further information must decide. The High Sheriff of the county of Suffolk has called a meeting to consider of the expediency of a voluntary contribution to furnish a ship of the line for the service of the state, or to procure a number of men for the navy. UTTON- UPON- SEVERN, Worcestershire. MONSIEUR DE CLERCq, French As- sistant to the Rev.

TJie beginning of laft week his Majefty and fhe Prince of Wales paid a morning vifit to Lord and Lady North, atBuftiyPark. The King, and his late .

" This morning their Majesties, the Prince of Wales, Princess Royal, and two of her sisters, at- tended by the Duke of Montagu, Lord Aylesbury, and other persons of distinction, went to Eton, being the election day, when, according to annual custom several speeches in Greek, Latin, and English, were spoken in the upper school by the following young gentlemen, viz.

They readily sup- plied him with provisions of all sorts, which detained him for ten days, and he was then proceeding in his way to the East- Indies, where he expected to arrive in three months. , The Mahrattas, with whom the Government of Bombay have concluded a truce, are the natural ene- mies of Heider Ali; against whom there are great hopes of seeing their forces, which are numerous and well disciplined, now employed.

Hereford, July 4. PURSUANT to an Order made by the Right Hon. Edward Lord Thurlow, Lord High Chancellor of Great- Britain, for enlarging the Time for William Bloxham, now or late of the City of Glocester, Mercer, Linen- Draper, Dealer and Chapman, ( a Bankrupt) to surrender himself, and make a full Discovery and Disclosure of his Estate and Effects, for 49 Days, to be computed from the 30th Instant^ This is to give Notice, that the Commissioners in the said Commission named and authorised, or the major Part of them, intend to meet on the 17th of September next, at Ten in the Forenoon, at the House of George Hinks, the Boothall Inn, in the City of Glocester; where the said Bankrupt is required to surrender himself, between the Hours of Eleven and One of the same Day, and make a full Discovery and Disclosure of his Estate and Effects, and finish his Examination '; and the Creditors, who have not already proved their Debts, are to come pre- pared to prove the same, and assent to, or dissent from, the Allowance of his Certificate. The East- Indiamen under Commodore Bickerton's convoy were the Alfred, Ceres, Dutton, Ganges, Calcutta, Royal Henry, Major, Norfolk, Kent, War- ren Hastings, Morse, and Hawke, for Coast and China; Talbot, Nottingham, and Worcester, for Bombay; Royal Bishop, for Bengal; and Anne and Amelia, for Bencoolen. The Jamaica fleet had a very narrow escape from being captured near Scilly ; the combined fleets were within eight leagues of them, but they were so wrapped up in a thick fog, that they passed them undiscovered : a frigate informed Admiral Parker of his danger, who pushed for the Channel, where he happily arrived with his whole fleet, one vessel only being missing, which was burnt on her passage. One underwriter, by the arrival of the homeward bound Jamaica fleet, will gain 6000I. which was un- derwrote only 10 days ago. Lord Howe is expected to return in three or four days, preparations being made for that purpose. He is to sail again, for the relief of Gibraltar, in about a fortnight, by which time the second Jamaica fleet, as well as that from the Leeward Islands, will be 0n our coasts, and after giving them the necessary pro- tection, his. object will be to fight the enemy, and succour that important fortress ; which, as he will then have 37 sail of the' line, there can be no doubt of his effecting. Extract of a letter from Gibraltar, July 2. As this will probably be the last opportunity of sending for some time, I snatch the opportunity of a cutter sailing with invalids to give you some account of our situation. The Spaniards advance their works, and from the large shells lately thrown in here, which have been but too fatal to the garrison, there is a prospect of an obstinate attack very shortly : with 8000 very spirited men ( for we have none but soldiers here I now) a true British General will not give up a place of so much importance, without some very desperate situation renders it necessary. There is nothing tena- ble or secure here except the bomb- proof works, which are our only retreat when fatigue obliges us to procure rest. Our life for several months has been like that of people given up and attacked by all the world ; though we have been pretty lucky in that most of the supplies have got here safe, which is more than was to be expected in single ships. The Spaniards no sooner see a vessel coming in than they are at her like our English dogs at the bull; and too often, as our cargoes are landing, they destroy them on our very beach. The Moorish gallies, of which, we have had several lately from Laroche and Tetuan, are our best friends; they row in so quickly, principally in the evening, that we get their cargoes stored before the Spaniards know a vessel is arrived. The Jews, one and all, have been sent away, on account of their un- derhand dealings. It may be truely said we have no more cats than catch mice : were there as many more soldier's there would be full employment, though they have extra pay for all extra work; the Germans work indeed like horses." Extract of a letter from Rio Janeiro, May 23. " This comes to inform you of our safe arrival here, and that we are now on the point of sailing for India, though our men are not yet recovered; for there has been a great sickness in the fleet. The Anne- Amelia alone buried 5- 7 before they arrived here, and eight since, and have at present on shore 140 Hanoverians ill. All the sick are on a small island, where we have an hospital, but the island itself is not half a mile round. 11 The provisions we have here are very indifferent, and by no means in plenty; but we have abundance of oranges, limes, & c. and the water is good. " Our Indiamen are greatly distressed by the de- sertion of their seamen, nor do we know how to put a stop to it. The Vice- Roy indeed delivered up to the Sceptre, and even sent after her, some of her men, who had deserted, on the very day he found them, therefore wc cannot suppose he countenances it. The Sceptre, which parted with us on the voyage, had been here a month, and sailed with the Medea, a week before we arrived. "' We are just now informed by a Portuguese gen- tleman, who came about six weeks since from Buenos- Ayres, that the Yncas in that neighbourhood had 80,000 men in arms, and are in possession of all Peru What makes this matter worse is, that the Spaniards have no force there to oppose them. " The gentleman who gives us this account wanted Sir Richard Bickerton to go to the River Plata, and assist the Indians, but that you know could not be done. It is said they have an English General to command them." SATURDAY'S POST. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Rome, July 11. THE conferences that the Pope held with the Emperor at Vienna seem to have given rise to a great revolution in the Romish Church. His Holiness, it is supposed, has been Convinced by the argUments of the Monarch, that the confining such numbers of the human race in con- vents, does not promote the cause of religion and virtue; for he has declared, that he will permit but one convent of men, and one of women, of each order, in any one kingdom; into each of which only 40 persons shall be admitted, of the age of 25 years ; and if ever they should incline to come into the world again, they may do it with impunity. Another instance of the decrease of the rigour of the Romish church is, that the Grand Duke of Tus- cany, on the 5th of this month, abolished the In- quisition throughout all his territories. Naples, July 2. We- have accounts from the Cri- mea, that what has occasioned great disturbance in Tartary is, that the Chan wanted to clothe his men in the European fashion, and that he himself was going- to wear the Russian uniform, without reflecting that the Alcoran forbids any Mahometan from obey- ing a Prince who shall be impious enough to dress like a Christian. LONDON, Friday, Aug 2. Yesterday the Court of Directors elected Sir Henry Fletcher, Bart chairman of the East- India Company, in the room of Robert Gregory, Esq who, we are sorry to inform the public, has, from his bad state of health, been under the disagreeable necessity of quitting the East India direction. Mr. Child, by his will, has left 6000I. a year to his widow, and 2000I. a year to Lady Westmoreland ; likewise 12. oool. a piece to each of her Ladyship's younger childen, down to the twelfth, except the second, to whom he has left the residue of his for- tune, which it is imagined will be nearly equal to that particularly devised. Capt. Cradish is appointed by Earl Temple to be his chief Aide- du- Camp in Ireland. It is said the Lord Advocate of Scotland is appointed Treasurer of the navy, in the room of Col. Barre. The Lords of the Treasury have appointed John Brown, of Evesham, in the county of Worcester, Esq; to be collector of his Majesty's duties on post horses and carriages, and distributor of stamps for that county. The Rev. Mr. Jackson is appointed by his Majesty to succeed the Rev. Dr. Blair, deceased, as Prebend of Westminster. The constables on Monday night entered the Tem- ple of Health, in Pall Mall, and cut the tables to pieces but they were not strong enough to take the company, for there were not less than 300 persons present. Tuesday night the Justices in Bow- street went out a second time, with proper assistance, and took and destroyed feveral E. O. tables in the parishes of St. Martin's and St. Clement Danes. They all belonged to lottery- office keepers. . v Wednesday evening a young lad was perceived run- ning from Leicester- Fields towards the Haymarket, and two or three fellows running after him, crying Stop Thief /, Some of the passengers no sooner stopped him as such, than he told them he was n0 thief, but had been kidnapped by his pursuers, who had chained him in a cellar with about nine more, in order to be shipped off for India; and that he had made his es cape so far, by mere desperation, swearing he would run the first through with a pen- knife he held open in his hand. The youth was instantly liberated, and the whole fury of the populace fell on his kid- nap- ping pursuers, one of whom, was heartily ducked in the Mews pond. All the remaining youths were then taken from their place of confinement by the intervention of the populace. These robbers of human flesh, it seems, not only intoxicate country lads till they can confine them, but have been known to stop people in the streets, and " carry them to their infer- nal dens, under the various pretences of being de- serters, pick pockets, & c. ' They likewise attend re- gister offices, and hire raw youths there for servants, whom they immediately confine, and sell them either to the military, or to the India kidnapping contrac- tors. The master of this infamous house behaved in a most insolent manner before Justice Hyde, and was committed to the Black Hole be re- examined. It is sincerely hoped that the Middlesex justices will sup. press these infamous houses, which there up- wards of fifty within the bills of mortality. Extract of a letter from Edinburgh, July 28. On Wednesday the 24th inst, came on at Holy- roodhouse, the election of a Peer, ( as one of the Re- presentatives of the Scottish nobility) in the room of the late Earl of Loudon; — the candidates were the Earls of Buchan and Lauderdale. The latter was. chosen by a majority of two, the numbers being is to> 1 St. Upon this occasion the Earl of Hopetown deli- vered a speech, which has been much the subject of conversation. He began with observing, that their Lordships appeared that day as the poor remains of a once beautiful structure. That he never could reflect on the event which deprived them of their hereditary rights to seats in the grand council of the nation, without feeling the humiliating degradation of the Peer; of this country. It is the first time, said his Lord- ship, that I have appeared here in my new situation, and if I should deviate a little from the primary object of our present meeting, in what I have further to add, I shall hope For the indulgence of my fellow Peers. My Lords, it should be remembered, that the union was first proposed on the part of England — Proposed, did I say ?— It was asked, it was urged, it was petitioned for by England. That the commerce of this country may have profited by the treaty-, I will not pretend to determine; but sure I am our order has dwindled- almost to insignificance What did not Scotland forfeit by the connection * To say no more, she relinquished- her sovereignty which has always been held of consequence nations. Her imperial diadem is, alas I no more. But whilst. I lament our degenerated state, I mean not to inflame. The law has now marked our path,— let us tread it with honour. Our sister kingdom, indeed, has, with arms in her HANDS, compelled the legisla ture to do her justice. I rejoice at her successes. She has nobly, on her part, obtained what she had a title to enjoy. But in what manner ? Not by a voluntary' — act of the British Senate, but, I repeat it again, by the power of the sword, wielded in her right hand.' As people 1n general seem interested in the event that has brought Capt. Asgill's life into danger, we have extracted from a very prolix detail of circum- stances published by the Loyalists, a few facts relative to that subject : , The loyalists, having suffered the most unheard or cruelties when made prisoners. by the Americans, which they ascribe in a great measure to the want of spirit in the British commanders, in not making pro- per retaliation 0n the enemy, determined to take the matter into their own hands, and when any of their friends suffered death for the cause in which they had engaged, they resolved to make a similar example of their foes.-- To evidence the truth of this, it is advanced, that Col. Delancey, of West- Chester, caused one of his. prisoners to be hanged up, to retaliate for the hang- ing one of his refugees by the rebels, which immedi- ately put a stop to the treating his people in any other light than as prisoners of war. — Captain Cornelius Hatfield likewise hanged up one Ball in the same man- ner, and it was attended with the desired effect. The provocation given by Ball was such a specimen of sa- vage barbarity, that it deserves a particular recital: — Richard Long, a refugee from New Jersey, who was no partizan, and had never made himself peculiarly obnoxious to the rebels, was persuaded by his friend, Mr. Stewart, another refugee, whose wife had lately died in New Jersey, to go privately into th « country to bring his only child to him at Staten Island, which after the death of his mother, he was anxious to re- cover from the hands of the rebel's. While Long was engaged in this act of friend ship and humanity, he was taken prisoner by Ball and some associates. They first stripped him of his cloaths, and flogged him most unmercifully; and, after tearing up his flesh with their instruments of cruelty, they peppered and salted him. To add to the indignity, they tumbled him into a hog pen, and threw before him some ears of corn, as if they had been feeding a swine. After they were tired' of this diversion, Ball proceeded to tear the boots from the legs of Long, and then- pound- ed upon his unguarded feet with the but- end of his musket, till he had not a nail upon his toes. Long was then made to march some miles with his bare mangled feet upon frozen ground, Ball whipping- him as he went, and giving him many stabs with his bayonet, which put out one of his eyes. When they arrived at the destined place, in order to compleat the tragedy, they hanged him, but took care to let him down just as he was becoming insensible, that they might repeat his agonies. They hanged him again, and took him down as before. Upon hanging him the third time he fortunately expired. After these scenes of diabolical cruelty they dug a hole in the earth, threw in the dead body, and covered it in such a manner that one leg and one arm were left ex- tended above ground. The corpse lay in this situ- ation for a day or two, when it was taken up in the night, and placed against the door of a loyalist in the neighbourhood in such a manner, that when the door was opened in the morning, it fell forward into the house upon the person who opened it. Some months afterwards this monster of barbarity, Ball, in some of his incursions, fell into the hands of the loyalists, and Captain Hatfield carried him over to Bergen Point, in New Jersey, where he made a public example of him. Having stated these and many other instances of the revengeful disposition of the Americans against those who adhere to the cause of Great Britain, they proceed to relate the circumstances reflecting the execution of Joshua Huddy, whose death was the- object of reprisal. threatened by General Washington upon Captain Asgill. " Being frustrated in their design of carrying off Capt. Tilton by force," say the loyalists, " they dreaded that he was reserved for a fate similar to that which their associate Philip White had suf- fered, who was taken at the same time with Capt. Tilton, and inhumanly and wantonly murdered by the guard, who were carrying him to Monmouth gaol. " They thought it high time to convince the rebels, that they would no longer tamely submit to such acts of barbarity, and determined to begin a retaliation of intolerable cruelties, often repeated ; convinced that they could not have saved the life of Capt. Tilton by any other means. They there-- fore pitched upon Joshua Huddy for a proper sub— ject for retaliation, because he was not only well known to have been a very active and cruel per- secutor of their friends, but had not been ashamed to boast of his having been instrumental in hanging Ste- phen Edwards, a worthy loyalist, and the first of their brethren who fell a martyr to republican fury in Mon- mouth county. Huddy was the man who had tied, the knot, and put the rope round the neck of that in- ofensive sufferer.'' The loyalists farther enumerate a long list of- their friends who have been massacred by their coun.- trymen for their adherence to the British cause. A melancholy proof, that even in these enlightened days, where party rage takes possession of the mind, all the advantage, which mankind should draw from those bright precepts our religion enjoins, are lost; and men are reduced to a state more brutal, more sangui- nary, than in the darkest ages of ignorance and super- stition.

" On Tuefday the 23d, about three in the after- noon, a French polacre, called Le Beinsaisant, was drove from the Lizard, and came on shore between the Mount and this place; she proves to be a prize to the Cerberus frigate, Capt. Sir J. Wheat, and was captured about 35 leagues S. W. of Scilly, being one of a fleet of 150 sail, escorted by six sail of the line, from Cape Francois, and is loaded with coffee and sugar, worth 2o, oool. if the cargo can be all saved. The prize- matter imagines, that about 20 sail of this fleet were captured by the Cerberus, Myrmidon, and Apollo, which were in company." COUNTRY NEWS. Hereford, Aug. 1.

Paris, July POST. from France and LETTERS from Brest inform us, that the f L % combined fleet has been extended for some t^ l days past from the Lizard to Cape Clear. We promise ourselves much that the English Jamaica fleet, on board of which, it is said, are Count de Grasse and 3000 prisoners, will not escape our fleet. But the English are so successful and so clever ! The approaching reduction of Gibraltar is much talked of here ; the preparations for the siege of which are carried on with all possible dispatch it is imagined it will commence on the 10th of next month. The artillery both for sea and land service is so numerous and powerful, that it is presumed the garrison will not hold out above three weeks. LONDON, Saturday, Aug. 3. St. James's, July 1. This day the Right Hon. George Earl Temple, and the Right Hon. Henry Dundass, Treasurer of his Majesty's navy, were, by his Majesty's command, sworn of his Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council, and took their places at the board accordingly. His Majesty in council was this day pleased to de- clare the Right Hon. George Earl Temple, Lieute- nant General and General Governor of his Majesty's kingdom of Ireland. Whitehall, August 3. The King has been pleased to order a Conge d'Elire to the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral Church of Salisbury, for electing a Bishop 6f that fee, the same being vacant by the death of the Right Rev. Doctor John Hume, late Bishop thereof; and also a letter recommending to the said Dean and Chapter the Right Rev. Father in God Doctor Shute Barrington, now Bishop of Landaff, to be by them elected Bishop of the said fee of Salisbury. The King has been pleased to grant to the Rev. Thomas Jackfon, M. A. and one of his Majesty's Chaplains in ordinary, the place and dignity of a Canonry or Prebend of the collegiate Church of St. Peter, Weltminster, void by the death of the Rev. Doctor John Blair.—- Lond. Gaz. The Lively privateer is arrived at Leith, with an account, that on the 21ft of July she fell in with the Dutch fleet, consisting of 14. ships of the line, steering to the northward. From this information it is pro- bable, that the Dutch are pushing for the East- Indies, to join Mons. D'Orves, in order to give a decided su- periority against us in that part of the world. They had no frigates, transports, or smaller vessels of any kind in company.— And as, the latest accounts re- ceived of Lord Howe were from a vessed that passed him 60 leagues to the westward of Cape Clear, it is imagined, that he was stretchind into the ocean, with a view to intercept the Dutch fleet, as they are steer- ing to the southward. , a Government have received information that the State of Vermont has settled its differences with the Congress, by which it is admitted to be a free and in- dependent State. The American confederacy, there- fore, is hence forward to bear the appellation of the Fourteen United States of America. By a letter received from a merchant of considerable eminence residing at Jamaica, brought by the last fleet, we learn, that during the time Count de Grasse re- mained on that island, his conduct and demeanor bor- dered fo much on the hauteur, that he was generally disliked by the inhabitants : a suspicion having gone abroad, that he intended to blow up the Ville de Paris, a guard was placed over him, and which, it is sup- posed, saved the Count from some personal insults from the negroes, who were extremely exasperated, when they heard that 30,000 handcuffs had been found on board one of the men of war captured by Lord Rodney, in the engagement on the 12th of April, and which were intended as shackles for them immediately after the reduction of the island. The Jenny, Walker, a running ship from St. Lu- cia, is arrived at Liverpool. She sailed from the islands the 19th of June; but had not heard of the fleet having left Antigua, tho' supposed to have done so on the 17th. Every thing was quiet, and both the English and French islands were well supplied with provisions, the latter in particular drawing great re- sources from the islands of St. Thomas and St. Croix, the former of which now is what St. Eustatius was before the Dutch war. Advice was received yesterday from Liverpool, that the Major, Capt. Harrison, and the Charles, Capt. Graham, two of the Jamaica fleet, are lost near Li- verpool. They were very valuable ships, and are sup- posed to be worth more than 50,000!. A letter from Philadelphia says, that the Congress have offered a considerable reward to any of the King's troops who are prisoners, that understand cultivating the lands, if they will settle amongst them and ma- nage the farming business during the continuance of the war, that the land may not lie uncultivated ; and whenever peace is restored they shall have liberty to return home, or shall have a tract of land allotted them for their own support, & c. Advice is received from Boston, that two vessels were lately launched there; one called the Intrepid is to carry 60 guns, the other the Resolution, 64; and that keels of two more ships are laid, one of which is of 79, the other of 74. guns; and that frigates are building in every port belonging to the Americans. Lord Shelburne's scheme for prosecuting the A- merican war, is to withdraw - the troops from New- York, but to keep Charles- Town, and to carry on hostilities chiefly at sea. The troops at New- York to be sent to the West- Indies, where it is a fact we are so weak in troops, that, if we had ever such a naval strength, we could attack none of the enemies' islands.— St. James's Chron. A cabinet resignation, little thought of, it is said, will take place in a few days, " The supercillious car- riage of the person with whom condescension should originate, is assigned as the sole cause of this sudden resolution. English Chron. Mr. Bryan Broughton, one of the clerks of the Treasury, and late confidential Secretary to Mr. Ro- binson, is appointed private Secretary to Lord Shel- burne. This day a young fellow was taken into custody for a forgery on the bank of England of 1ool stock. We hear that the activity of the Westminster Jus- tices, which has been of late so laudably exerted a- gainst the E O tables, < vas occasioned by an applica- tion from the Directors of the Bank to Mr. Secretary Townshend, stating, that they had suffered considera- bly by this public practice of gaming in the metropo lis, and requesting, on behalf of themselves, and the public, that the laws now in being against gaming, might be extended as far as possible, to prevent its pernicious practice. In consequence whereof Mr. Secretary Townshend wrote to the different Justices of the Westminster Police, who waited upon him, and after a promise of every assistance from Administra- tion, undertook the business ; and they have since en- gaged in it in so very active a manner, as promises to put a period to this horrid practice, which has become more particularly dangerous from its being so Com- mon. It reflects no small praise on Mr. Justice Hyde, that he was the first of the Justices who ventured to do this good service to the community. Mr. O'Burne, who some years ago was pushed into life by the introduction of Lord Lyttleton, is sup- posed to have realised by play upwards of one hun- dred thousand pounds; he is now, and has been for some time past, resident at Paris; where he lives in the highest stile, and is one of the first favourites and most admired characters in the Bon Ton. The once gay Sir H y E n is at last become a post- boy, and not long since actually had the dishonour to drive a man, who formerly was his coachman, and to receive from him a livre in remem- brance of former acquaintance.—- M.

Monday, at his seat near Seven- Oaks, in Kent, of a mortification in they were induced to make him the offer of a very considerable establishment, would he relinquish for ever the dangerous profession in which he was engaged'. — The spirit of the Marquis of Granby's son revolted at the idea, he fought.— and he. died.! When the news of his lamented death arrived, the Duke's feel- ings did him honour as a brother and as - a man. Among other uncommon marks of affection, his Grace went down with his Duchess to Salthill, where he spent several days in wandering over the environs Of Eton, and enjoying the melancholy pleasure of traversing every spot which might bring to his mind the liveliest recollection of his gallant brother.' There was no picture of the young hero in the family:; but the rude production of a country dauber, This the Duke of Rutland conveyed to Sir Joshua Reynolds, and at the same time endeavoured 10 give him a more adequate description of his brother, whom indeed Sir Joshua had seen. Leave the picture with me, my Lord, and call to- morrow.- His Grace returned, and was informed, that the artist had it in his power to give him a perfect likeness of his noble relation,; which he has since most happily finished, to the intire satisfaction of the Duke. Lord Townsend has called upon his tenants and neighbours in Norfolk to embody themselves for learn- ing military discipline for the defence of their coast. — Fifty two horse and fifty- eight foot have already engaged in this association : the horsemen clothe them- selves in uniform, and find their own horses; Lordship cloathes the foot.— Many other gentlemen of that county intend following the example. ; a corn too near, aged Esq; formerly High- his foot, brought on by cutting 65, Frederick Wodehouse, sheriff for that county.

Nothing certain can be learnt from the papers, re- specting the situation of the combined fleet A letter from Plymouth, dated July 17, asserts, that an ac- count was arrived there, that the enemy's fleet was gone into Brest; their principal object, the protection of their St. Domingo convoy, having been effected. Another account lays, that they were seen the 26th instant, cruising in three compact divisions, at the mouth of the Channel. For the two following articles we are indebted to correspondent in London i It having been insinuated that a great and amiable Youth is disposed to place himself at the head of a party in the prefent dissentions among our great men, we have it from good authority, that nothing is far- ther from the truth. The good sense of the young Personage alluded to, forbids us to suspect it; while candour obliges us to add, that the person who is sup- posed to have endeavoured to excite such an evil fpirit, is well known to have done every thing in his power to prevent it; that amidst so many other causes of vexa- tion, at least, the domestick tranquility of the best of fathers might be uninterrupted. The life of Lord Robert Manners appeared of so much importance to some of his noble family, that Mrs. SIDDONS is at present at Cheltenham ; and it being the earnest desire of the nobility and gentry, as well as the public in general, to see that very fa- vourite actress perform some principal character, we hear that Mr. Watson has requested her acquiescence, and she has most obligingly promised to appear in the part of Portia next Tuesday evening; — Mr. BRUN- TON, from Bath, makes his first appearance in Shylock the Jew. A great resort of Company is expected this evening at Cheltenham; where there is, a grand hall for the benefit of the Mafter of the Ceremonies. ' J A few days ago died, after a tedious illness, which she bore with great resignation, Mrs. Morse, wife of Mr. Morse, mercer, in Newent, in this county.. Lately died at Lantrithyd, in Glamorganshire, John Roberts, a blacksmith, in the hundred, and eleventh year of his age, who was in good health till within a few days, and retained his senses till within an hour of his death. It is melancholy to view the quantities of hay in the meadows in this neighbourhood, nearly spoilt by the frequent rains. The wheat too, we are told, in many parts of the country, is lodged in such a manner as to afford a dismal prospect to the farmer. ; On Tuesday evening William Lewis, a young man who was learning to swim in the river Leddon, near the mill at Over, going out of his depth, was un- happily drowned. The Sieur BOAZ, having finished his engage, ments in Bristol, is arrived in this city; and we are authorised to inform the public, that he purposes displaying his Grand Thaumaturgick Exhibitions here, as soon as he has fitted up a commodious room for the reception of ladies and gentlemen, of which pro- per notice will be given. i N. B. The exhibitions are of an entire new species, and chiefly calculated for the genius of the British nation, of both sexes, and ail ages, being more apt to improve the mind, than affect the senses; tho' in an age and country left enlightened, they would inevitably have appeared supernatural. Last week was committed to our castle, Mary Wil- liams, charged with stealing a silver pint from a pub- lic- house in Briftol. This woman has been twice condemned to be hanged for horse stealing, and was discharged from the prison at the last assizes only. —~ To a person who expressed his surprize at her speedy return to her old habitation, she replied, that she was born under the planet, and as she must therefore die at the tree, she hoped the Lord would have mercy upon her soul. She is near 70 years Of age. A few evenings ago, one George Gough, who had been committed to the castle for a breach of the peace attempted to leap from the top of a high tree in the court- yard of the prison, over the wall ; but not jumping far enough he fell down upon the pavement in the court; and was taken up so much bruised tha there are little hopes of his recovery. .

The Fete Champetret which was so well received last Thurfday, will be per- formed again ( for the last time) next Thursday, the 8th instant, with additional illuminations, transpa- rencies, & c: & c. , A gentleman, lately arrived from India, has fa- voured us with the following instance of the efficacy of James's powder, which he received from Col. Watson :— The Colonel was going out to India in a ship extremely crowded with soldiers, and, off the Cape they met with such contrary winds and wet weather, that the people grew very sickly, and in a tew days a fever began to rage so violently that the men died in great numbers; There were three sur- geons on board the ship, to whom a person who passenger offered the rise of some James's powder, which he had, in his chest.— They refused to make any trial of it, ridiculing it as a nostrum..--- In the space of four days the three medical gentlemen were themselves carried off—- The passenger then had re- course to the powder, which in a short time restored to health the remainder of the crew. From the same authority we have another remark- able instance of the use of this medicine in India :-— Twelve gentlemen on board a ship at anchor, on the coaft of Sumatra, went on shore for their amusement, and pitching a tent, staid there the night- The next day, when, they got on board, they were all seized with violent fevers, one of them, luckily recollected that, he had a packet of James's powder, to which he instantly applied. This gentleman presently recovered, and is now in En few hours. Best Wheat Second Third land ; the eleven others died in a 8s, 7s, _ o6. d, ood. o3d. Barley is. o^ d. to owj.

Blood ; wherein it has proved signally successful in very many Cases, some of which are extremely malignant and inveterate, and even deemed incurable. It is agreeable to the Taste, and so per- fectly mild and innocent in its Operation, that it may safely be given to Children, and Women in every Stage of Preg- nancy; and withal fo powerful in its Effects, that the mod confirmed Venereal Complaints have been totally removed, after Salivation and every other Method had left the unhappy Sufferers despairing of Relief. And old obstinate Scurvys have given Way to this valuable Medicine, which, by restoring Purity to the contaminated Bluod, cures radically.
