VOL. LXI. MONDAY, October 28, 1782. stpi^ 3159 T H U R S D A Y's POST. AMERICA. From the NEW- YORK GAZETTE. Charles- Town, August 14. H E town of Savannah was evacuated by the British troops on the nth inft. the public stores, and the ef- fects of the inhabitants who have come away, being previously re- moved down to the island of Tybee. On the 20th inst. a fleet sailed from Tybee for Jamaica, with about 1800 negroes, and other property of the loyalists, un- der convoy of the Zebra frigate and Vulture sloop of war. Two days afterwards, another fleet, having on board about 3000 negroes, sailed for St. Augustine. On the evening of the same day, Col. Brown, with a part of his regiment, the militia troops of horse dif- mounted, some militia infantry, and about 300 In- dians, the whole making together nearly the number of 1500 persons, embarked in small vessels to proceed to East- Florida, by the inland navigation. The whole number of persons, independent of his Majesty's troops, who left Georgia in consequence of the evacuation of the garrison of Savannah, is said to be nearly 7000. Of that number about 5000 are negroes, who, according to some accounts, were at least three- fourths, and to others, feven- eighths of all the slaves in the province of Georgia. Among the 2000 whites, who have likewise come away, are al- most all the wealthy inhabitants of the province, and many of the lower classes of the people. New- York, Aug. 11. The following are the resolves of the Congress, in consequence of the reading in that assembly the Royal Commissioners' letter to Ge- neral Washington, dated Aug. 2. " " Resolved, That Congress consider the above let- ter as mere matter of information, inexplicit as to the nature and extent of the independency directed to be proposed by the British plenipotentiary) and as Congress have received no information on this subject from their ministers for negociating a peace, there- fore no public measures can or ought to be taken up- on it in its present form. " Resolved, That it be, and is hereby recommend- ed to the several States in the Union, not to remit of their exertions for carrying on the war with vigour, as the only effectual means of securing the settlement of a safe and honourable peace. Resolved, That the Commander in Chief be di- rected to propose to his Britannick Majesty's Com- manders at New- York, the appointment of commis sioners, to settle forthwith a general cartel for the ex- change of prisoners, taking care that the liquidation of accounts and settlement of the balance due for the maintenance of prisoners, be provided for therein « CHARLES THOMSON, Sec." New- York, Sept. 4. We are informed that Mon- sieur Vaudreuil, after sending two of his line of bat tie ships to Portsmouth, in New- Hampshire, to be re- fitted, entered the port of Boston with the remaining nine the 13th ult. In going in, the Magnifique, one of the finest seventy- four's in his fleet, ran upon Lovel's island about the time of high water, and when the tide fell, she overset and bulged Her sails fee. have been taken on shore, and the hull' is to be broke up. Five others of his ships struck the ground and were injured, one of them very materially. New- York, Sept. 15. You can form no idea of the inveteracy of the rebels against the loyalists, Con- gress has already given its opinion on that part of the Commissioners letter to them, where it is mentioned, that, " the proposal of independency is made, » -./ without the highest confidence, that the property of the loyalists shall be restored." The legislature of this state have proscribed almost every citizen within the King's lines, who has any thing to lose, and made it death without benefit of clergy, if any of the persons mentioned are residing here. A new law is also passed by them, prohibiting any one professing or practising either of the learned professions, with apothecaries, printers, and vendue- masters, who dwell within the King's lines, for ever following the same occupa- tion, after the British troops should leave this garri- ion. Our whole attention is now placed on England. We wait with anxiety for another arrival, but we wait also with fear and trembling. If Governor Franklin should reach London in time, we hope his efforts in our behalf will be attended with good confe- quences. The infults and robberies committed within the state by several parties of armed men, some of whom have talked of open defiance, have induced us to offer public rewards for apprehending and bringing them to justice, and a number of them have been arrested, and are now in confinement. A state of the taxes last year, with other papers of public concern, will be herewith laid before you. WILLIAM MOORE, President. Philadelphia, Aug. 14. LONDON, Tuesday, oct. 22. Admiralty- Office, October 22, 1782* Extract of a letter from Rear- Admiral Digby, Com- mander in Chief of his Majesty's ships in North- Ame- rica, to Mr. Stephens, dated at New- York the 4th of September. Received the 18th Instant. T DESIRE you will acquaint their Lordships, that - . Capt. Purvis, of his Majesty's sloop Due de Char- tres, in returning from the southward, fell in with a ship called the Aigle, of 22 guns and 136 men, be- longing to the French King, from Cape Francois, with dispatches for their fleet, and after a well ma- naged action of about an hour he took her, and has brought her in here. The Due de Chartres, notwith- standing her masts, sails, and rigging, were much shattered, had the good fortune not to lose a single man ; but on board the Aigle the first Captain was killed, the two next officers wounded, with j2 of the men killed, and 13 wounded. N. B. The Due de Chartres had 16 guns and 125 men.— Lond. Gaz. The dispatches brought by Lieut. Col. Balfour, late Commandant of Charlestown ( who came home in the Southampton frigate, and arrived in town on Saturday) contain the following particulars from the Commander in Chief, as to the effect which the late orders for evacuating the different posts and garrisons we had remaining in South- Carolina has had upon the minds of the loyalists in that province. Among other information the Colonel states, that after the orders were received by Gen. Leslie from Sir Guy Carleton, for evacuating Charlestown, a deputation from the whole body of the associated loyalists waited upon Gen. Leslie, to implore his assistance in the forbear- ance of his orders, which, if put into immediate ex- ecution, would not only occasion the certain loss of their property, but also endanger the lives of them selves and families. The humanity of Gen. Leslie caused these representations to be laid before Sir Guy Carleton ; in consequence of this application, which was backed by a memorial from the board of loyalists in New- York, Gen. Carleton suspended his Orders, and sent home for further instructions; this caused a cabinet council to be held, and their determination was, that their former orders should be put into exe cution. Colonel Balfour mentions, that when he left Charlestown, Gen Leslie had began destroying the fortifications, to leave the place in as defenseless a state as possible, and that transports were on their pas. sage to convey the troops to New- York. Commodore Elliott's squadron is returned to Ports- mouth from a cruise, and has brought in a French sloop of war of 14 guns, and a privateer of 12 guns, which had taken the Catharine, Alder, from Jamaica to London, and sent her for France. By the ship Charlotte, lately arrived from Hudson's Bay, we have unhappily a confirmation of the intelli- gence some time since given in this paper, of the de- struction of our settlement at Hudson's Bay, by a small squadron, under the command of Paul Jones. The ships employed on this occasion, were a 74, a frigate, and some fmaller vessels, having on board about 1000 troops, 600 of which were landed, and destroyed the forts and factories, plundering the Bri- tish settlers of much property. We do not learn, however, that they intend keeping possession of it, but, from the troops on board, it is probable they have some other objeft in view. The King George, Fowler; Sea Horse, Richards; and Prince Rupert, Christopher, were the chartered traders to the settle- ment, and it is to be feared they have fallen into the enemy's hands. The Eagle, Saunders, from Jamaica to London, which separated from the fleet eight days before the hurricane, is arrived at Portsmouth in good condi- tion, having escaped the violence of the tempest by steering a few degrees to the southward of the fleet. Capt. Schaik, who is detained by General Wash publickly authenticated in the London Gazette, a- larms the suspicions of those who ardently with for peace with their brethren, that that letter is a for- gery, and that peace with America is not intended : — and on the other hand, not being contradicted by the King's present servants, it caufes the- greatest anguish and disgust to thofe who have conscientiously approved and supported the American war." The placing the Duke of Portland at the head of Administration, and making Mr. Fox Chancellor of the Exchequer, is the plan of the new opposition. The present bishop of Landaff is, we hear, to retain the Archdeaconry of Ely, together with his prefer- ment in Leicestershire, and the Regius Professorship of Divinity, to which is annexed the valuable rectory of Somersham, in the county of Huntingdon. Last week the Rev. William Butts, Rector of Glems- ford, in the county of Suffolk, was instituted to the consolidated reCtories of Cloydon, with Akenham, in the diocese of Norwich, on the presentation of the Rev. Mr. Drury. We hear from Preston, in Lancashire, that on Thursday night last Houghton Hall ( the seat of Sir Harry Houghton, Bart.) was broke open, and that cash, bills, and other things, were taken thereout, to the amount of 300I. The post- boy, carrying the mail from Lynne to Wisbich, was stopped near Lynne on Saturday night last by a single footpad, who presented a pistol to him, and robbed him of the mail which contained the.] letters from Lynne to Wisbich, March, Chatteris, St. Ive's, and Huntingdon ; also of the letters for all places north of Huntingdon, with a few letters from Lynne to London. Married.] Friday, at St. Osyth, in Essex, Mr. Daniel Stevens, coal- merchant, aged 87, to Miss Hannah Carter, of the same place, aged 17. Died.] Saturday last, at Tavistock, in an advanced age, Dr. Lavington.— Yesterday, Mr. Baynham, sheep- salesman, in Smithfield. He attended his busi- ness in the market till eight in the morning, seemingly in good health In the beginning of September, on Long- Island, Patrick Campbell, Esq; Major of the 71st regiment of foot. w N< From the PENNSYLVANIA PACKET. Philadelphia, Aug. 21. Last Wednesday the Gene- ral Assembly of this Commonwealth met here, when the Secretary presented the following message : Message from the President and Council to the Re- presentatives of the Freemen of Pensylvania, in General Assembly met 1 Gentlemen, IT has been with great reluctance that we have called you together at an earlier day than that to which you had adjourned ; but the state of the trea- sury rendered it, in Our opinion, iudispensibly ne- cessary. The sum which we have been able to procure on loan, in consequence of an act of General Assembly, has been so very trifling as to leave no room to hope for a supply of money by that means. Since the time of your adjournment, great quanti- ties of British merchandize have been imported into this state from the city of New- York, and paid for in specie. This has occasioned a considerable deficiency in our circulating medium, and justly alarmed every good citizen with apprehensions of the most fatal con- sequences, if that destructive trade is not immediately and effectually restrained. The intercourse between the disaffected of the state and the enemy at New- York is so easy and unrestrained, as to become injuri ous, and really dangerous, and it is, in our opinion, become absolutely necessary to take measurcs to re- strain it. We are sensible that a sameness of language, and C- milarity of dress and manners, render it difficult to devise effectual means for the purpose, but those diffi- culties, far from preventing, ought to redouble our diligence and efforts, in a case on which so much de- pends,.

Copy of a note from the Right Hon. Lord George Gordon to the Right Hon. the Earl of Shelburne. " Lord George Gordon presents his compliments to the Earl of Shelburne, and begs his Lordfhip will do him the favour to inform him, whether his Ma- jesty's present Cabinet approve of the declaration made in the late letter, said to be written by Sir Guy Carleton and Admiral Digby to General Washington, « That his Majesty, in order to remove all obstacles to that peace which he so ardently wishes to restore, has commanded his Ministers to direct Mr. Grenville, that the Independency of the Thirteen Provinces should be proposed by him, instead of making it a condition of a general treaty?' " Lord George would not have asked this question to satisfy any private curiosity ; but he thinks it his duty to the King to acquaint Lord Shelburne, a6 Prime Minister, that great bodies of the people in the united kingdom of Scotland are daily pressing Lord George, in the strongest terms, and in the most affec- tionate expressions, to write his sentiments to them on the present state of public affairs in the united king- doms; and Lord George finds, among other serious matters, that the late letter, said to be written by his Majesty's Commissioners at New- York, not being Lot 1.

St. Roch, Sept. 28. < 0s Courier- Extraordinary, dispatched to ! the Duke de Crillon, brought him word on the 26th, that Admiral Howe's fleet a had quitted Portsmouth, in order to steer for Gibraltar. The General im- mediately sent off advice of this to Don who communicated it to all the comman. ders and crews of his squadron, who received it with joy, testifying the most ardent desire to fight the enemy. We are adding to the number of our gunT boats, which are to be increased, if it can be done, to 250; and rafts covered with cork, are building, which as well as the gun- boats, are to carry forty- two pounders. These rafts, - which are of a new inven, tion, will draw near enough to fire a ricochet, to the very points of the rocks and platforms. The King of Spain has sent to the Counts d'Artois and Dammartin, desiring their Highnesses to remain in the camp ' till the end of the siege. The General keeps his dispositions extremely secret; however, every thing presages the resolution of an assault.

LONDON Friday, October 25. Extract of a letter from an officer in Admiral Pigot's fleet, dated off Sandy Hook, Sept. 14. " We arrived off here on the 4th instant all well, and were immediately joined by the Warrior and In- vincible, who, after undergoing their repairs pushed after us, from Jamaica, to New- York, through the windward passage. Our fleet at present consists of 16 sail of the line, 1 fifty, and 7, frigates. Our passage from Jamaica was seven weeks, with pleafant weather; we were a fortnight cruising off the Havannah, for the protection of our convoys, in which we fully suc- ceeded. We have shifted our station, 13 sail of us being now moored at Staten Island, while Mr. Pigot, with the remainder of the fleet, lies a- breast of New- York. We find great plenty of provisions, and are abundantly supplied with fresh beef twice a week. Vegetables are scarce, owing to the dryness of the season, which is universally complained of on this coast. We found 8000 British troops encamped at King's Bridge, and about 4000 in different small encampments round New York. The rebel army, under Washington, are at the White Plains, and, as we are told, have lately been joined by a considerable body of French troops. We have undoubted advice from Boston, of Le Magnifique, of 74 guns, Le Triomphant, of 84, and a third French line of bat- tle ship, having run a- shore going into Boston har- bour ; the former totally stranded, and the two latter much disabled. The French have 10 sail of the line at Boston, all in a wretched state indeed. The Mag- nificent sailed a few days since for Halifax, to heave down to repair the damages she sustained in running a- shore at Jamaica. The Lion, Chatham, & c. are at sea; Prince William is gone out in the latter, Rear- Admiral Digby has re- hoisted his flag on board the Prince George. It concerns me to tell you, that Lord Hood is in an indifferent state of health; in a great measure it is thought owing to a severe blow he received off Jamaica, by accidentally striking his fore- head against the beam of his ship. I cannot conclude better than by telling you, that the fleet are healthy, and in high spirits, and that we are extremely well victualled. Our return from hence is expested about the latter end of October, fo that our friends may look for us at St. Lucia before the close of Novem- ber." Extract of a letter from Portsmouth, 0ct. 23. The Senhora D'Ajador, from Lisbon, is arrived at Cowes, but brings no news of Lord Howe's fleet. We have it pretty well confirmed here that the fleet was across the Bay so long since as the 27th of last month." Yesterday an account was received at the Secretary of State's office, from France, that an English East- India ship, supposed to be the Neptune, Capt. Scott, from Bengal to England, was taken soon after she sailed by a detachment of Mons. Suffrein's fleet. It was yesterday reported, that besides the East- India ship taken by part of Suffrein's squadron, they had driven another on shore, which was totally lost. Notwithstanding the present unhappy division be- tween England and Holland, yet so high an opinion have the Dutch of the security of this country, that On Friday last and yesterday, no less than 1630 state lottery tickets were bought at the Stock Exchange for only three houses at Amsterdam. On Monday night a thief found means to get into tbe house of Mrs. Dawes, in Russel Court, St. James's, and concealed himself under her bed, till that lady and her daughter were preparing to go to bed, when he darted out and robbed Mrs. Dawes of cash to the amount of 278L her watch, rings, & c. On Miss Dawes crying out, he stabbed her with * knife, and made off. On Tuesday Mrs. Greaves was committed by Mr. Justice Wilmot, for having defrauded a number of tradesmen of various sums of money, under different pretences. She is the same woman that was tried and convicted several years ago, for defrauding a man out of a sum of money, under the pretence of getting him a place under government, thro' the interest of the Hon. Mr. Fox, at that time one of the Lords of the Treasury. Since that time she has continued her old practices, only varying her story a little, according to the understanding and situation of the person she had to deal with. The almost nuinberless frauds she had committed at the west end of the town, rendering her safety there a little precarious, she shifted her quarters to Wapping, at which place she carried on her frauds with impunity. Happening to take her lodging at the Coopers'- Arms, East- Smithfield, she induced the credulous landlady to believe that she had a friend in the Earl of Shelburne, who would readily grant her any request she might make; that the place of Register of the Stamp- office was then vacant, if the landlady would advance a sum of money, to pay the fees usually claimed by the Secretaries of the * Treasury, her son fsould be appointed to the place. < This request was immediately complied with, and in the mean time Mrs. Greaves, was entertained with every delicacy which the poor woman could procure. But she was strictly enjoined not to let a syllable of this business transpire, left her husband should discover what they were about, and by his precipitancy ruin * all ; however, the night before the business was to be completed, the wife divulged the important secret to husband, and he, without further ceremony, sent for a constable, and took this female place- monger into custody. A crowd of people appeared against her, notwithstanding which she was perfectly uncon- cerned. Amongst the number of her dupes was an . attorney, whom she had touched for ten guineas. On Sunday evening, between six and seven o'clock, as Mr. Pollard, of Snow's- fields, Southwark, and another gentleman, were returning from Kingiton in a single- horse chaise, they were met upon Putney- heath by two highwaymen, one of whom discharged a pistol, the ball from which lodged in the feat of the chaise; at which instant the other villain bid them . stop, or he would fire. They robbed the gentlemen of about eight pounds, and behaved in a most un- daunted boisterous manner. " Monday night ten of the thief- takers belonging to the Borough went in pursuit of the four following thieves, viz. William French and John Elliott, both returned from ballast- heaving; Thomas Turner and John Eggleton, alias Bones, both tried for burglaries „ at the last Guildford assizes, and acquitted. On the officers entering a house in Kent- street, where they went on information, they were repulsed by more than 20 desperate fellows, who obliged the officers to ' retire, after wounding three of them in a terrible manner, without being able to take any of the villains. The freedom of the city of Exeter has been pre- - sented to Lord North, in terms highly honourable to his Lordship. ______________ COUNTRY NEWS. York, Oct. 22. The opening of the ports of Scot- land for the importation of oats, barley, and pease, on account of the bad harvest, seems to be absolutely necessary, without waiting the time specified by ( ta- tute. The example let by the sheriff- depute of Mid- - Lothian ( with the consent of those empowered by law to judge of the necessity of the case) will, it is hoped, be followed at the other principal ports of the kingdom without delay, while the Baltic is yet navi- gable. By the latest accounts from Pomerania, Li- vonia, and Germany, the harvest has been plentiful. Oxford, Oct. 26. On Wednesday the Prince and Princess of Mecklenburgh, with all the German no- - bility who came with them from that country, ar- rived at the Cross inn, in this city.— And on Thurs- day, after having seen the colleges and public build- ings in this University, fhe Prince and Princess, & c. set out for Blenheim, in their way to Bath. On Thursday last the Rev. Thomas Green, B. D. Fellow of Magdalen College, was admitted to the de- - gree of Doctor in Divinity. On Saturday last was married, at Hornton, in this - county, Mr. Thomas Deacle, surgeon, of Banbury, to Miss Louisa Wells, of Hornton. A dreadful fire broke out at Lambourn, Berks, on Friday night last, about nine o'clock, which in a very short space destroyed i j barns full of corn, 17 dwell- ing- houses, and many corn and hay ricks.-— There is strong suspicion that the town was maliciously set on fire.--- One Packer, a blacksmith, has been appre- hended upon information of his having threatened to do some mischief to the inhabitants ; the parish hay- ing had a law suit with him concerning a house, in which Packer was cast. • - GLOCESTERSHIRE MILITIA.

Extracts of letters from the Honourable General Elliott, Governor of Gibraltar, dated Gibraltar, Sept. 11 and 12, 1782, and received at the Office of the Right Hon. Thomas Townshend, His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department, Oct. 24. September 11. attempt to try the effect of a heavy fire from < TA lb our batteries with carcasses, hot shot, and uPon the enemy's first established ad- vanced works and batteries, seemed so very practicable, that the commanding officer of artillery was immediately directed to take the Lieutenant- Ge- neral's orders for that purpose. In consequence the arrangement was very judiciously made, and com- pletely executed by the artillery officers. The firing having commenced on the 8th instant, at seven in the morning, by ten o'clock their Mahon battery, con- sisting of six pieces of ordnance, and one adjoining of two guns, were set on fire, and by five o'clock P. M. were entirely consumed, with gun carriages, - plat- forms, and magazines, bomb proof. Part of the communication to the eastern parallel, and the trenches and parapet for musquetry in front of the battery, were also destroyed. The thirteen gun- battery, next the Bay, was so much damaged, being on fire in se- veral places, that the enemy were put to the necessity of taking down one half of it, which they have now begun to re- establish. The success not only much ex- ceeded my expectations, but had the happiest effects in other respects, as it provoked the enemy to open their new mortar batteries, and recommence a fire from their forts and lines, for which they seemed by no means prepared. The enemy's loss in our fight w? s very considerable, as their endeavours to stop the progress of the flames laid them open to a very severe and well directed fire. Notwithstanding the great number of the enemy's shot and shells, we suffered no material loss. The next morning by day- break the enemy opened their new sixty- four gun battery upon us, with all their mortars, and continued to fire without inter- mission from thence, as well as from their lines, ( their whole artillery amounting to about 100 pieces of can- non, and 60 mortars) seemingly by way of retaliation, it being the general opinion their preparations were not sufficiently compleat to begin this powerful at- tack, which, however formidable in appearance, I will venture to assure, that the impression upon our works as yet is scarcely perceptible. On the same day the enemy's squadron, consisting of seven sail of the line Spanish, and two French, with a large frigate and xebeque, taking the advan- tage of a Levant wind, got under sail from the Orange Grove, and one of them passing very slowly within random shot fired many guns upon the south bastion and ragged staff, continuing his cannonade until he got beyond Europa. The squadron then went to the eastward of the rock, and formed in a line, ( the Ad- miral leading) came before the batteries of Europa, and under a very slow sail commenced a fire from all their guns, until the last ship had passed. They re- peated this manoeuvre at two o'clock the following morning, and again in the forenoon of the same day. These successive cannonades did not any ways damage the works. Some of the leading ships came pretty near the point the first attack, but having been fre- quently struck by our shot, they afterwards kept at a greater distance. Two of the Spanish ( hips went early in that morning to Algeziras, to repair, as we ima- gine. All the batteries at Europa were manned by the marine brigade, ( incamped there) with a small proportion of artillerists. The guns were extremely Well laid and pointed ; the whole under the immediate command of Brigadier Curtis. About five in the afternoon of the same day, 16 of the enemy's gun boats came over from Algesiras, formed in a line, and fired upon the garrison. Our batteries obliged them to retire in less than half an hour, not without some of them having suffered, as there is reason to suppose. September 12. The enemy continued his heavy fire from the Isthmus; last night the gun and mortar boats repeated their attack. Nobody hurt by their fire. The wind having come to the westward, there is all probability the enemy will determine upon his final attack by sea in a very short time. The enemy has made no further approach in his land attack since yesterday. Whitehall, Oct. 22, 1782. To the. Chairman of the sessions of the peace for the county of Middlesex. S I R, HIS Majesty being very much concerned at the fre- quent robberies and disorders of late committed in the streets of London and Westminster,. and parts adja- cent, and being informed that they are greatly to be imputed to the encouragement given to rogues and their accomplices, by persons who keep night- houses and cellars, which are resorted to by great numbers of loose and disorderly persons; . and that gaming- houses, as also the places where strong liquors are drunk to excess, contribute much to the corruption of the morals of those of inferior rank, and to the leading them into these wicked courses, has com- manded me to recommend it, in his name, in the strongest manner, to the justices of the peace for the county of Middlesex, to employ their utmost care and vigiliance in preventing and suppressing these disor- ders, by holding frequent petty sessions for this pur- pose in their several parishes, or other divisions, by calling before them the high constables and other pro- per officers under their direction, and giving them the strictest orders and warrants, from time to time, as there shall be occasion, to search for and apprehend rogues, vagabonds, idle and disorderly persons, in order to their being dealt with according to law ; and likewise to proceed with rigour as well against all per- sons harbouring such offenders, as against those who keep the said night- houses or cellars, tippling or common gamimg- houses, or who practice or encourage unlawful gaming. And his Majesty having very much at heart the performance of this service, wherein the honour of his government, the preservation of the peace, and the safety of his subjects are so much concerned, does further require the said justices in their respective sessions to draw up in writing, from time to time, an account of their proceedings herein, inserting the names ot the justices attending such meetings, and of the peace officers whom they shall employ, taking par- ticular notice of the zeal and diligence of each of them in the performance of his duty ; which accounts are to be transmitted from the said several sessions to one of his Majesty's principal Secretaries of State, to be laid before his Majesty ; who being informed of their behaviour may reward such of them as shall distinguish themselves in the faithful and diligent execution of their office ; his Majesty not doubting but the justices, on their part, will take care to punish with rigour, as by law they may, those who shall appear to have been guilty of corruption or negligence therein. You will be pleased to acquaint the justices of the peace for the said county, and all others whom it may concern, with his Majesty's pleasure, that the same may be duly and punctually complied with. I am, & c. T. TOWNSHEND. Letters to the like effect have also been written to the Lord Mayor of London, to his Grace the High Steward of Westminster, the chairman of the sessions of the peace for the city and liberty of Westminster, and likewise for the county of Surry at St. Margaret's Hill. [ Thus far London Gazette.] This Day arrived the Mails from France and Flanders. Paris, Oct. 17. Count de Bussy is on the road, in order to go to Coromandel, or some other part, but is not to command any of our troops there. He is go- ing to the Nabobs in the character of negociator from the King, who no longer makes any mystery of his designs respecting the East- Indies, but is determined that those countries shall be entirely under the government of the Indian princes, and that all the na- tions of Europe shall be content to trade there. M. de Penniers, Commodore of the Fendant and Argonaut, has taken, on the coasts of the Cape of Good Hope, four large English Indian vessels, and carried them into a Dutch port. The two most considerable of the English vessels taken by M. Penniers, are the Crosfort ( Carysfort) and Neptune. LONDON, Saturday, Oct. 26. On Thursday last the Secretary of State sent to r. e- quest that the Admiralty would order a frigate to be immediately got ready to convey some fresh instruc- tions to the Commander in Chief at New York. The last dispatches from Sir Guy Carleton express his posi- tive resolution to resign his employment, if the Cabi- net persevere in tying up his hands. The result of the various consultations, that have been held on this important subject, is said to be this :---,' That Sir 4 Guy Carleton be requested to retain his situation ' ' till the ensuing session, when, it is hoped, a parlia- ' mentary sanction will be obtained for the renovation ' of hostilities in America.' He concluded with proposing a resolution, which was substantially as follows " That it is the opinion, of that court, ' that the Ma* rhatta war was not occasioned thro' any improper coll- duct in Gov. Hastings, as appeared by the instructions sent him by the Court of Directors, as well as by the resolutions of the House of Commons on that fubjedt; and that it be therefore recommended to the Court of Directors, to suspend their recall both of Mr. Hastings - and. the rest of the Council, at a time that requires so much zeal and unanimity amongst the Com- pany's servants." • • General Smith opposed the whole of this defence, ill a speech of several hours. He first stated, that it did not appear to him well founded, that Mr. Hastings was not the cause of the Marhatta war,, when so many documents were in the Company's possession, which proved the direct contrary. The general opinion was, that a question of such magnitude could not be then finally determined, but referred to a ballot of the whole of the Proprietors* on Thursday next. The insurance on the Jamaica fleet which were to sail this month, is done at .18 guineas per cent, home with convoy, and 22 guineas without, for ships carry- ing 16 guns and Upwards. ; The malsters, brewers, and distillers have presented a petition to his Majesty and Council, by the hands of Mr. Whitebread, setting forth the present very high price of barley, occasioned by the late continual rains, and praying leave to import the same.

"" THE following letter has been written, pursuant to his Majesty's express command, by the Right Hon. Thomas Townshend, his Majesty's principal Secretary of State for the Home Department: Yesterday at noon there was a general court of the Proprietors of East- India Stock. As soon as the clerk had read over the minutes of the last meeting, the late resolutions of the Court of Diredtors relative to the recall of Warren Hastings, Esq; Governor General of Bengal, were read, which, after paying some compliments to the general abilities of Mr. Hastings, stated the reasons of his recall, prin- cipally referring to his conduct in the Marhatta war. It likewise appeared by these resolutions, that the numbers of Directors for the recall of Mr. Hastings were thirteen, against it ten. After these resolutions had been gone through, the clerk next read the protests of the several Directors who voted againft the recall, signed by Mr. Daryl, Mr. Townson, Mr. Manship, and others. They consisted of many articles, and substantially were as follow 1 " That Mr. Hastings had been 30 years in the East India Company's employ, during which time he had shewn the greatest industry and abilities of perhaps any one servant of the Company; that he had been ac- J cused of being the author of the Marhatta war, and all the consequences which resulted from that circum- stance; but that the fact was quite otherwise; for that he had acted only by the particular advice of the Court of Directors, who, in giving him a latitude of acting according to events, justified him in doing what he did. That at so great a distance as Bengal was from this country, it was next to an impossibility for a servant of the Company to be governed in every circumstance by precise instructions; and that the best and most convenient interpretation of such instruc- tions was all that could be expected : they concluded with expressing an astonishment, after all these cir- cumstances, that the majority of the Court of Direc- tors should concur in a resolution of recalling so able, so old, and so capable a servant." Commodore Johnstone followed up this protest by entering very fully into the general services of Gover- nor Hastings, and the injustice and impropriety of his recal. He paid great compliments to the reasons as- signed by the protesting Directors, and said, as most of them had been better acquainted with the local si- tuation of the country of India, so considerable a number as ten out of twenty- three, ought to have a considerable impression 0n the proprietors. He assert- ed that Mr. Hastings was not the author of the Mar- hatta war, but the particular instructions of the Di-, rectors consequently to their general orders ; and that in many instances of that war Mr. Hastings had shewn a courage, a promptitude, and ability, that did his government and the Company's affairs equal credit. General Elliot's letters from Gibraltar were sent off the 12th of Sept. which was the day before the grand attack in which the Spanish floating batteries were de- stroyed. On Thursday was married, at St. Nicholas church, in this city, Mr. Greenaway, to Miss Higgs, of Charlton Kings. On Thursday last died, after a lingering illness, at Lymington, in Hampshire, Francis Charlton, Esq; formerly in the service of the Hon. East- India Com- pany, and a Member of their Council in Bengal. On Friday se'nnight this port was opened for the importation of all sorts of grain. At Hereford fair on Monday, there was a very great shew of cattle, and many buyers. Store pigs sold cheap. Extract of a letter from London, Saturday Evening. " The papers have been lately very full of para- graphs about negotiations for peace going on at Paris ; but I believe them to be fabricated by persons, who have an interest in the reports ; or that France is in- tending to amuse us with an idea of peace, to take off from the spirit of our preparations for war. I think they mean to exert themselves more than ever next year both in the East and West Indies ; I am corro- borated in this idea by the advice, arrived in our letters this week from the Continent. In Russia such large purchases of hemp have been made for account of the French Government, that the price is risen to 3 pitch never before heard of in Petersburgh. In Hol- land a considerable loan of money is negotiating for France ; and, it is said, that the States General are to be security for the payment of the interest, which looks like real business ; for the French, without that secu- rity, would not find much credit in Holland. " The Morning Herald of this day asserted, that information was received at the different offices of Government of an action having been fought off cape Finisterre, between Lord Howe and the combined fleet; but I have been to the Admiralty to esquire, if any real news was come, and find that there is none. People are very apprehensive for the Ville de Paris, and still more for the Centaur." *#* The lines upon the author of the Coriniad are received; but as that performance never appeared in print, there seems an impropriety in publishing what cart be intelligible only to the few turn have seen that piece.

The EDITORS of the NEW CHRISTIAN'S MAGAZINE To the PUBLIC at Large. yf ARMED with a benevolent Wish to profit and please our fellow Christians, we have resolved to furnish them with a Repository of Divine Knowledge, so happily calculated on the general Principles of Christianity, as to be highly accept able to all Ranks of People who prosess the Christian Name, and which will conduce no lets to the Benefit of Society than of Individuals. In the first and fecond Divisions of our Work, namely Modern and Antient Christian Biography, will be presented the Lives and Characters of such of our present Bishops have been conspicuous in defending the Doctrines of Chris- tianity, and other celebrated Divines and Characters of former and later Ages, Fathers, primitive Christians, Martyrs, & c eminent for their Learning or Piety, such as Dr. Porteus Bishop of Chester, Dr. Hurd, Bishop of Worcester, the late Dr. Newtoa, Bishop of Bristol, Seeker, Latimer, Burnet, Beveridge, Hoadley, Pearce, Wilkins, Wilson, Dr. Watts Dr. Young, Usher, Stillingfleet, Tillotson, Addison, Sher- lock, Hall, Gardener, Doddridge, Hervey, & c. In two other Heads, which we have allotted for Astro- Theology and Physico- Theology, we shall exhibit the Wisdom and Wonders of Divine Providence in the Works of Ciea tion, & c. Our next Department will include Divinity, systematical historical, and practical, and will comprize all those impor- tant Matters which relate to the Faith and Practice of every Christian. The seventh, eighth, and ninth Parts are allotted for Christian, Jewish, and Roman Antiquities; History of Monu- ments and Tombs in Westminster Abbey, and of St. Paul's Cathedral, London ; but it is necessaary to observe, that a Variety of other instructive and highly pleasing Articles will be introduced,— Scripture Chronology and Geography -- the Rise, Progress and Evidences of Christianity— The Christian Monitor, and Family Instructor — A Summary of Ecclesiastical History ; and many other Particulars. The tenth Division will contain every Thing striking and entertaining, serious and profitable; Dissertations, Letters, Essays, Remarks, Thoughts, Anecdotes, critical and prac tical Pieces, Solutions of doctrinal and scriptural Difficulties, & c. The eleventh Space is allotted for Poetical Divinity, and Pieces of a Moral Nature; and the twelfth will contain, for the Use of the Clergy, a Lift of Church Livings in the Gift of the King. Another Part will include an Account of Books on Di nity. To close this comprehensive Undertaking, a brief Diary will be annexed monthly of the most material Occurrences, foreign and domestic, with a Lift of Deaths, Births, Marriages, Pre ferments, Bankrupts, Bill of Mortality, See. which will be sufficient to furnish Families and Individuals with an Idea of the Times. Such is the Plan we offer to the Public, and do not doubt that a Design so exceedingly ufeful will be very favourably re- ceivedj by which Means every Family, and the rising Gene- ration especially, will have an Opportunity of possessing ( at a very easy Rate) a rational serious Performance, inculcating the most solemn Truths in the most engaging Manner, where- in nothing of Indecency or Impropriety shall ever be admitted. Truth shall guard our Entrance, Virtue conduct our Pens, Piety direct our Steps, and the present and future Felicity of our Readers be our invariable Aim. *#* Respecting the internal Execution of The NEW CHRISTIAN'S MAGAZINE, we have said sufficient; but dis- daining to derive Credit from mere empty Promises, which are in the Power of the meanest Adventurer, we shall only take a Pride in that Applause which flows from the Perfor- mance of our Engagements. With refped to its external Execution, it will surpass every Work of the Kind hitherto published. The Paper and Print will be greatly superior— the Types better, being entirely new, and cast on purpose by Caslon— and the Portraits really genu- ine, and other elegant Embcllishments, will be finely executed by the moft celebrated Artists who have exerted their Skill and Abilities in railing the Reputation of the Publisher's other elegant and much admired new Publications, ( which are readily allowed to be preferable to » ny other Works of the Kind, viz. The Rev. Dr. Wright's Complete British Family Bible, being a real new Exposition and Commentary on the Holy Scrip- tures. The Rev. Dr. Wright's New and Complete Life of Christ and his Apostles, Sec. elegantly printed in Folio. Mr. Millar's New and Universal System of Geography, with all the new Discoveries, & c. Mr. Barnard's New and Complete History of England, from the earliest Accounts, to the prefent Time.

( which are now publishing in Weekly Numbers, with unprecedented Success) being universally ap- proved of. and known throughout these Kingdoms, may serve to convince every Person of the Truth of our Assertions re- specting the Execution of the New Christian s Magazine, now offered to the Public. For further Particulars we beg Leave to refer the Public to the first Number, which is offered as a Specimen, and may be read gratis, as the Money will be re- turned if not approved. . The following MEDICINES are sold by R. RAIKES, South gate- Street, Glocester. For Disorders of the Bowels, so common at this Sea- son of the Year. DALBY'S CARMINATIVE. THIS Medicine; which is founded on just Medical Principles, has been long established as a most safe and effectual Remedy, generally affording immediate Re- lief in the Wind, Cholics, Convulsions, Purgings, ard all those fatal Disorders in the Bowels of Infants, which carry off so great a Number under the Age of two Years. It is also equally efficacious in Gouty Pains in the Intestines, in Fluxes, and in the Cholicky Complaints of grown persons. A striking Proof of the Power of this Medicine lately was seen in the Case of Mr. Low, Officer of Excise, in Glocester, who, having been long afflicted with a most violent Cholic, and twisting of the Intestines, which reduced him to a State ' in which his Life was despaired of, could find no Relief, till a Lady in his Neighbourhood advised him to give Dalby's Car- minative a Trial, From this he received immediate Ease, and was perfectly cured by two Battles; and has had no Re- turn of his Complaint. It is prepared by the Inventor, J. Dalby, Apothecary, and sold by Francis Newbery, at the only Warehouse for Dr James's Powder, No. 45, in St. Paul's Church- Yard, Price IS. 6d. a Bottle, with an Allowance to those who buy it for charitable Uses, or to sell again. Sold also R. Raikes, Printer, Southgate- Street, Glocester j and appointed Vender of Mr. Newbery's Medicines in other Country Towns. Of whom may be had. By his Majestys Royal Letters Patent, The TASTELESS AGUE and FEVER DROPS. No MEDICINE was ever offered to the Public that has a greater Claim to their Approbation than this, at many Thousands can testify. If taken regularly and accord- ing to the Directions, it is the most efficatious Medicine in the World for the Ague and Intermittent Fever, and in moft Cases one Bottle is sufficient for a Cure. The Bark is the usual Remedy in this Case, but being p very nauseous Medicine, and seldom taken in a sufficient Quan- tity, it very often fails, and Children and those who have weak Stomachs are frequently lost for Want of a more easy and pleasant Remedy. In these Drops the Afflicted will find a Medicine, in which the greatest Safety is united with the utmost Efficacy, and so . perfectly tasteless, that they may be given to any Person with- " out their Knowledge, yet so efficacious, that they have fel- dom or never been known to fail. %* As there are other dangerous Preparations that are sold under the Name of Ague Tincture and Dreps, be careful to have none but thofe fold by the King's Patent, all others be- ing Counterfeits, and the Venders liable to be profecuted.

B I C K L E Y and Co.' s HEALING MAMMILLARY BALSAM, For Tender or Chapt NIPPLES. DISORDERS of the NIPPLES have long beeii a Reproach to the healing Art, and for Want of this much desired Secret arise not only immense Pain to Mothers, but the long Train of Diieafes ( not to mention the Death of Thousands of Infants) which proceed from the abominable Neglect and Baseness of mercinary Wet- Nurses ; whereas, if the Mothers had been able to give suck, they would have bred up their tender Infants under their own Eyes. It is perfectly safe, and may be applied while the Child sucks, as it is also a Remedy for sore Mouths. It has all the healing Properties of the most excellent Balsam; it gives in- stant Ease to the most painful Breasts and Nipples, without a Particle of Opium; it is a sovereign and immediate Cure for chapt or spreathyed Lips, Cheeks, or Hands, tho'ever somuch exposed to the Inclemency of the cold Air.
