The Earl and Countefs of Shelburne, after feeing every thing th. it was curious in this city, departed yefterday for Amfterdam. Warfavi, Aug. 30. News from the frontiers of Turkey mention, that war has taken place. There are feveral reports, that the Turks will make an attempt upon Crimea. If the enterprize fails, the confequences may be very fatal to the Ottomans. But whatever may happen, the Divan will thereby appeafe the Iinans, who demand war with continued eagernefs. Paris, Sept. 1 4 . It is faid that 1 2 , 0 0 0 men, to be embarked at Toulon', will go and take poffellion ot Candia, the ancient Crete, which we fliall keep in truft till the general peace. It is alfo reported that the other ifles of the Archipelago are to be guarded in like manner. This precaution is to be taken, in order to preferve to the French houfes of commerce eftablifhed there, the continuance of their correfpondence with Mai feilles and * ha pons in the Levant. L O N D O N . A Council is fummoned to meet at St, James's this after the Levee is over. Yefterday Lord Cadogan arrived at his houfe, in S . JanWs- fquare, from his feat in Suffolk. Yefterday Ellis, Efq. fon of the late Se- Cretay for the AmcrieM) department, let off on Jjis travels to France and Italy. The laft. lettersfrom Quebec bring intelligence, that the Americans have already began to mark out the boundaries of their northern hunting ground, as fettled by the treaty ; but at shf fome time make but liit'e ffcrupte of declaring, that no limits will confine their trade when they fliall find a convenience in trefpalliag according to their dilcretion. The lift fhips fro 11 New York bring advice, that the . troops- and inhabitants have been uncommonly healthy tlp. re during the Summer; and that the old inhabitants of Long Ifkind were returning back to their old habitations from all quarters, Yeftertlay morning fome difpatches were received'from Sir Guy Carleton, at New Yoik, which are dated the 16 h of Auguft, when every thing was well, and feveral more ( hips were arrived there from London and Ireland. The prefetit equipment of a fmall fleet arifes from the motions of the enemy in Brett and Rochfort, where, under the pretext of humbling the Algerines, a fquadron is getting ready to ait in the Mediterranean as future emergencies may require. We are well informed, that rhe moft preffmg retr. onftrances have lately been made to our Court by that 0! Ruffia, in confequence of the apparent intention of the French to prevent the Emprefs's fleet fioni carrying on hoftilities in the Mediterranean. And by the fame channel wele. irn, that the French Mitiifter at I'ettrfburgh held fuch ftrong language to her Imperial iVIajefty's Minillers, when her fleet failed fyom Cronftadat, more thau two months agoj as to occafiun an or dcr for its immediate recal. America, Juring the troubles, has produced reiany men of deep and fubtle talents, particularly in- the N- orthern Colonies ; but we are inclined to think, notwithltanding, that they have t9J great a mixture of character—. too great an inequality of genias to avail themfelves like wife and gKod men, of the prefent opportunity that is offered them to eftabl'ifti an independent Empire. The relaxation of difcipline in the navy has been greater during the lalt war than ever was knowir in any country; nay, to fuch; a pitch of licentioufnefs had the feamen got when the men of war arrived at Plymouth; from the- Weftindies, as to feize the command of every fhip, and not permit any officer to go on fliore wiihout the confent of the crew. The Spaniards are equipping a feiill fquadron of clean Ihips, chiefly fifties and frigates, to fail for their fettlements in South America. Remittances from Charles- Town and Savannah for the imnxenfe quantities ofBritifli goods, which were left there at the time of the evacuation, are made but flowly, and wkh that talent for apology and procraftination, which has marked the charaferof that people in all the petiods of their commercial connedtion with this country. By the India accouir s- from every quarter, the turn of our affairs there has been decilive, fo that we ilitll probably hear by ihe next difpatcbes, that Hyder's fon has been reduced to folicit with humility, for that peace which was fo coiKemptuoufly rtfufed by his father. The late refufal of difcottnts at a certain great houfe, has been owing to the policy ot the Directors, who naturally wifh to prevent the rapid exportation of gold coin from the kingdom. YeCerday advice was received attheEaftlndia- Houfe, that the Locko and Ofterley Eaft- Iudiamen arc fafe arrived in the Downs,, where they lie at anchor, waiting for a fair wind to bring them up the River. The Eaft- India Company have two or three other fmall country ( hi as now ou their voysge to Europe, which were taken up during the fcarcity of Slipping at Btngal- Several of the Company's veffcls that went out fromEngland being engaged for a time in warlike employments. According to the latt letters from Bombay, they were building in the Company's yard at that place, two fnips far the purpofe of trading ; they are to be of 1000 tons burthen each, and are built of a timber on the Malabar coaft peculiar to that part of ihe world,, the fame as the Britannia and Hornby were built of. During the time, of Sir Edward Hughes's fleet being at that ifland, all the fhipwrights were employed in repairing the men of war; but fir. ee they had failed, the men were again put to work on the new Ihips upon the ftocks, which were in- pretty good forwarduefs. A correfpondent fays, that the filly ftory related in a morning paper of yefterday, concerning Dominique, a famous Harlequin in the time of Louis XIV is an evident proof of the abfolute ignorance of the writer, as it is well known that no Harlequin ever fupped or dined with the King of France. An account of the difcovery of an ifland rifen lately out of the ocean near Iceland, in the North Seas, having appeared in the foreign papers, it will uot be amifs to obferve, that this phenome non is not lingular. In the environs of Pozuolo, in Italy, the Monte nuovo ifl'ued from the earth the 291I1 of September, 1532. Th< re is at the furnmit of that mountain, a gulf of about fifty foot in diameter. Its birth was occafioned by a great eaithquake, which filled up part of the La cus Luduus. Jerome Borgia, who wrote a Latin poem on that fubjaft, and inferibed it to Pope Paul the Third, fays, that the faid mountain had, at the time of i; s appearance, very r. ear four of our miles of perpendicular height. It is not fo hig' at prefent, the rains and wintjs having confiderably leifened its bulk. It is, however, about three thoufand feet in circumference. Some hiftorians likewife relate, that in the county of Hereford, the mountain called Market- hill, made its firft appearance in the year 13.71 ; ana in century, in the year 1717, a burning moun tain iffued from the fea in the neighbourhood of Santini, in the Grecian Archilepai; o. The Earl of Pembroke lets off in a few days for France. General Effiol is expedtcd to- revifk his eoun try, his grateful and admiring coantry, in the beginning of next month.. A detachment of the foreign troop* from New Yotk, eonliiliag of upwards of toco, arrived at Stadt oa the Sth curt. Though the. fpirit of1 the filler kingdom is. general y reported to be fb high, it is certain that her wealth has by no means encr fifed by her- independence, all accounts agree,, that the. ro is an univerfal want of money in every part, and t'na. her trade, within the " ftft year, has not . en creafed in any decree fulijeient to warrant a wifh for a total fcparation from Great Brigraduftill among the fol- Religious prejudices, which have been ally relaxing in all the Chriftian churches, maintain the feverefl. prevalence lowers of M * homet ; fo that . notwithftanding he late deflation made by the plague, the doctrine of predeftination prevents the detlruclion of the beds on which ihey die, or any other means of llopping, the violence of the contagion. Storms are very frequent and formidable upon, the Bank-, and off Ballon Bat, towards the en i ot November;, fo that all the American fhips in the river, bound to the northern Colonies, are preparing to depart with all poffibie expedition, in order to get into port before'the hurricane feafon comes on. The inhabitants of a Court,, net far from the Royal Exchange, have occafion to rejoice at a fkirmiflr, which lately happened at a neighbour ing tavern; the nolfy French Horn, no longer interrupting their bulinefs, the gentleman having received fo fevere a drubbing, that he is rendered unable to blafl— It is hoped the illegitimate offspring, and his Sharp friend, will in future be more cautious how they give offence. A chemical correfpondent, who has lately ana- Iyfed Parliament, ^ flitres us, that it confifts of two parts Whig, one of Tory, and one of a Caput Mcrtuum-, fo that any thoughts of d:_ ft> lvitig (\< c'ti a mafs muft be given over. In the courfe of his experiments, he found that gohi was the only metal which fwarci at the top and feemed to mix, but that true pa'riotifm went to the bottom, giving only a faint colour to the mixture. The idea of comimtting Gibraltar for any pecuniary exchange, does not at prefent make any part of the plan of Adminiftration. It is thought that the finances of the country can be managed very well' without fuch a facriflce. Lord Rodney's Secretaiy is ftij to have acquired at leaft 45,0001. during his Lordfliip's command in the Weft- Indies, by his flnre 011 the fale of prizes, the palling of comraiffio- s, & c. Admiral Digby's Secretary alfo has has made no inconfiderable fum ir. the fame way. The civil reception which Lord Shelburne has experienced at the Hague, is not at all a matter of wonder, as the politics of that llatefman vVcre of a nature far more favourable to the Dutch republic than thofe of Mr. Fox. Had his Lordillip continued in office. they would not have been obliged to give up Negapatnam, as they have been compelled to do by our prefent fpkited Secretary. If the peace had been conclude,! by that pliant peer, no doubt Holland would have made a more refpedtable figure in the terms of parification, than they have now been obliged to l'ubmit to by the able management of our judicious Adminiftration, therefore we cannot be fur prized that the moriified Dutchtiiould tcftify every mark of refpedt to a nobleman, whefe- condudt towards them, if he had remained in. power, would have been of a more amicable kind. Mr. Fox fliould be cautious how he makes a vifit to the Hague, left the fame fpi- rit which adluated that grateful people, at the time of the De Witts, fhould be raifed again, and their fury inflidt on him a fimiiar fate. A grand exhibition of she air balloon is to be made this week at Verfailles before the King, and the particulars of the experiment are to be publilhed from authority. The firft obfervation of the extreme comparative lightnefs of inflammable air was made many years ago by Mr. Cavendifli. Dr. Prieftly has purlued fimilar experiments with great fuccefs, and is at this time carrying them much • further than any other pcrfon. Subalterns who have a turn for the artillery and engineering, ape feen every day filing off for Toulon, in order to go and try their fortunes among the Ottomans. The Dukede Laaz-^ n only waits his orders to fet out with two young Englifli officers as his Aides- de Camp. His Grace the Duke of Rutland hath fent for that very eminent artift, Jofeph Nollekrn, Efq. F. R. A. to chufe a proper place in his chapel at B-' lvoir Caftle, whereon to eredt a monument to the beloved memory of Lord Robert Manners, who fo glorioufly fell in his country's caufc, in the memorable adtion under Lord Rodney in the Weft Indies. Among the defigns for that purpofe, is one fuperlatively eminent, reprefenting the hero dying in the arms ofVidtory, juft defended to receive and crown him ; himfelf in compleat armour, but as in death, hi* head is reclined on her arm ; his helmet,- falling off, is received by Genius, who is ftanding at one end of a rich faccophagus, weeping - r at the other end of the farcophagus ftands Britannia, with her proper emblems, lamenting over, and pointing to her favourite fon, juft expired in the moment of Vic. tory's arrival with the laurel crown. His dying attitude on the top of the farcophagus, is llrikingly imagined j the mingled paflions of joy for the vidtoiy, yet forrow for fuch a lofs, are finely expreffed in the female countenance, reprefenting Viffory, who is with expanded wings at the back of the larcophagus. The whole delign ftauding on marble lteps, and the figures as large as life, with proper drapery and accompanyments ; alfo a bold baflo relievo, reprefeuting the engagement in the front of the farcophagus, form altogether fuch an affemblage of grand fculpture, ( if carried into execution) as will reftedt the highell honour on his Graced tafte, munificence, and fraternal affedtion. A letter from Cowes, dated the 20th inft. brings advice, that early that morning a larg fhip, luppofed- to be Duich, was loft at the back ot that Ifl. ind hi a llorm, and the crew were all drowned ; that two coatiing veffela were drove on fhore, but they arc La hopes of getting them off a^ ain.

The doors upon the ft- tge are reftored1 for the convenience of the performance , but it. is a miftake, that in confeq^ ence of thre reiiitution, the ftage boxes have been contracted. Tirefa it is, that fioce the docss were taken awny^ there have been two ltage boxes on each fide oF the theatre ; the larger of which is lVow taifeii on a line wi- h, and added to the range of lide boxes. The prefent li age boxes remain juft they ware jsefore, except that their fronts- uvi circu- lar. The doors, wuh box; s over them,, are entirely new.

It has been o. ving to the great- mtrdejly of'the- Irifli, peihapv that tbey never affunied a na- : tional mutto, while they continued dependents on this country. But now, however, that they ba> e i eft'edted thfir e- mancipation, by a manli ejt of con iuct peculiar to JiemfeKes, It has fiirprifeiS every one that they have not yet produced a few WOFJS, in any language whatever, exp- rcflive of their own merits in the accomplish nent of . that great event. As they may not yet have fo fa* ; got the better of their notivi. blufhes, as to think, of any well contrived fenrinient for tlumfelves, a correfpotideiit, who has always- enieitained a proper fsnfe of their true chandler, begs leave JH1 fug^ eft one, which, he believe, moft peopfe- ' will think pretty aptly applied. But, fliould h& happen to IK miftake 11 in this refpedl, . none, he is fine, can find fault with the Latin, for the expreffi- n is literally f: om Cicero, and is this* viz.

It will be feen, that, after the evacuation of New- York, the commotions already begun in America will rife to the tvtmnft height of tutnuls and diforder. So long as we keep poSedion of that place, the rebels will not think their Independence fu- lly fecured ; and, therefore, ajealoufy of our ultimate deftgns will, in general, prefervefome appearance of unity among themfelves. But the Lift tranfport that carries off the troopa will be no fooner out of fight, than* the fpirit of difcord will eredt her ftatrdard among them. Suck a generation of vipers can never live in harmony. They will, in all pniba'ni- y, like the foldiers of Cadmus, with- whom they feem to have a natural affinity of difpofki'oo, tguirrel and fight till they have deflroyed each other. An experiment of Boyle's Oft- ihe- weight o f air, gave birth to the new dilsovery of Mr. Montgoltiers. Having conceived the thought of difpkicing; the atmofpherical air by one that was rsrerT or lighter, he took it irito- his head to make ufe i ® the experiment of a piece of taffeta which wasbrought him from Lyons;. he forgot the purpofefor which it was intended, which was merely to line a fuit of clothes ;, fowed it, and'introduced into it Forty cubic feet of- air. The machine fprang out of the hands of our philofopher, and mounted to the cieling. I't is not aafy to defcribc his joy ;: nothing is more i- nt refting than the recital made of it by Monf. de Montgolfier : 1c proves that the fciences procure at times the moft exquifite, and above all the purefl pleafures. Herfeizes the m ich'ne again with eagernefs, and let it go in the garden, where it rifes to 36 feet. But the air contained in it geuin- g> out at the border of the fluff, two minutes were fufficiem to fapply its place that ef the aim.> fphere, and the machinefeH down again upon a tree. This unexpected fuccefs determined the n to a fecond experiment. That announced ia the publi « paperswas the third, to which we ( lull not go back, as the verbal procefs of it is well known. Some da^ s afer this experiment, a print appeared reprefenting the moment of the afcent, in which but one and the fiimc attitude could be. given to all the fpedlators, that of having their eyes fixed upon the machine for the ftoru* itfelf was not able to divert them from it* Another print has appeared fmce, the fubjed* of which was the fall of the ba[ loon at Goneffe. To this print, which expreffes the terror of the parifh, the painter has added fome ftrokeaot imagination. It raay be conceived, however, that the unexpedtedappearance of fuch a machine was calculated to give alarm, efpecially to country people... An intelligent, or even a learned' perfon, feeing a globe of 12 feet in height upon the ground, and move itfelf thereby leaps and bounds, would moft furrly heGtate to go up to it. We fliall not dwell, however, any furlher uponthe particulars^ of this difcovery, as an hiftorical account of it is drawing up. We confine ourfelves iherefore to give fome idea of the machine now making by Meff. de Montgelfier, a trial of which was to be made at Verlailles on the 19th of the prefent mon h. This machine is of linen cloth, covered with blue paper. On it are painted yellow flowers fliadedwLh brown. It is co. npofed of three parts, the firft a pyramid of 24 faces, z j feet in height, the fecond a prifon of the like number of faces, 24 feet high and 40 in diameter; the third a truncated pyramid of about 20 feet, forming in the whole an elevation of about 7a feet. It was thought neceffary to adopt this form, as approaching neareit to a fpherical figure. This machine will be capable of raifing a weight of from fevctt to eight hundred pounds. An eftablifhed Colony will now be fixed by the Eall India Company and Government, on the ifland of B'alambangan, in the Otiental Ocean, in conffcquence of matters being fettled with the Duieh, relative to the trtide in thofe part?,, , Mondav the Aldermen were fatnmoned to meet t h e Lord Mayor on Sunday next to fivear in the n e w Sheriff-, and afterwards to dine with Mr. Sheriff T u r n e r ; and alfo to meet on Monday for the election of a Lord Mayot for the year enf u i n g .

I n the year 1771, when the application was made to Parliament by fome of the clergy, for relief in the matter of fubfeription to the 39 articles, a nobleman, who gave all his fupport to the bill, took an opportunity to requeft Lord S , who was then in Adminifhation, to give his vote in fav o u r of the clergy : " Why, ( faid hiiLordfhip) though I am for the compleateft latitude in matters of confcience, I fhall certainly vote with the Bifhops, for, as their Lordfhips Von » with us, ( meaning the Administration) in other matters, we are always, in eeclefiaftical ones, governed by t h e Bench in ihe Upper H c u f e ." According to advices from Condantinople, re ceived on Monday by the way of France, the P o r t e continues fending warlike ftores to the provinces of Beffarabia, Wallachia, and Moldavia, whicn are on the nonh fide of the Danube, and t h e workmen in the arfenals continue employed n i g h t and day to compleat the numerous orders for the fame articles for different quarters.. A f u p p l y of cannon had been expe& ed from France, where agents had been gone more than two months to procure various articles of artillery and tent equipage. Intelligence being received t h a t the Ruffian force at Afoph is larger than had been expefted, fix more Ihips are ordered for the Black Sea. It appears the Ruffians launched at Afoph, in lefs than three years, eight new ihips. The Turkifl) fleet that failed from the Porte the 24- th of July, arrived at Kaffa in Crim T a r t a r y the 7th of Auguft. T h e Admiral Pacha • writes word, he was preparing to proceed up the Straits of Kaffa, where he cxge& s to meat the Ruffians, and the conflict will be great. A French Officer, named Detouche, who lately ferved in America, vvas arrived with near 300 failors from Marfeilles, and being appointed to a flag, he had gone on board the Gallipoli, a new fhip of 62 guns, and had carried all his countrymen with him ; he is to command a i'quadron to be ftationed in the Archipelago. A courier arrived from the Grand Vifier, who was on the 12th of Auguft near Bender with 47,000 troops. The Divan obferves great fecrecy on all difpatches. Sunday morning early the houfe of Edmund Boeham, Efq. of Chatham- Place, was entered and robbed ot plate and jewels, bank notes and cafh, befides feveral valuable medals and coins. Never was greater violence tiled in a robbery than t h i s : they broke iron bars an inch and a quarter fquare, and a ftrong handfpikc fix feet long was broke in forcing the windows and d iors; every latch in their way was forced, and all the papeis examined ; they left all the bills of exchange, and fuch no'. esas could not be turned into calh ; Tery unfortunately, the keys of the ftroug room were left in one ol the clerk's dclks. They came by water, and entered at a window next Meffrs. Baynes and Co.' s coal wharf, and arc fuppofed t i be the fame gang who robbed Mr. Lea ham, uf the fame place, on T h u r f d a y. T h e N^ wcaltle paper, by Monday's pod, informs us, that a very Ih- jcking and difagrteable circumllance attended the execution oi William Cunnyngham, upon the Low Lands near Carlifle, on Saiurday the 13th inllant : After an hour and f o r t y minutes fpent in prayer, feemiugly with great devotion under the gallows, attended by a Efiffenting Minifter, he was turned r. ff at half p ill one o'clock. The executioner, a feeble old man, placed two ladders afide of each other, one for t h e unhappy man, the other for himfelf; the rope prepared to exterminate his exiftence was very thick, and notwithltanding the futferer re. clined his head to give the executioner an opport u n i t y to fix improperly under his neck, it vvas only thrown loofeover, without paying any regard to t h e knot. In this manner he was t u r u c d o f f in f u l l f n i n g ; but- had not hung above a minute before he called out in a lamentable tone, " It will r o t do— it will not d o . " The knot being pn the right tide yif the chin, the Under Sheriff very humanely rj/ de up, and with the alfiftance of the executioner, attempted to adjuft it, but in the i n t e r im the poor fufferer got hold of the hangman's coat, by which means he got on the ladder with his hands and knees, from which fituation he was forcibly fliaken off. He C J U g h t hold of the other ladder, on which he flood a confid- rable time on hit feet, and called " Murder, murder 1" T h i s being alio taken away, after being much convulfed, he expired in fifteen minuses. His body, after hanging an hour and a half, was 1ai4. cn do. vn, put into a eolfin, and buried. Yeflerday' afternoon a genteel dreffed womatt Was deteded at a milliner's ( hop, in Bond- ftrtet, in feireting a piece of lace Worth twenty pound;. M r . Crawford has written to his Conftituenta by letters received laft poft, that he has engaged ft very excellent company of fingers, with whom Gallini had been in treaty, but would not come op to their price ; therefore he had judged it proper to dif'patch his bufinefs, even on high terms, as he conceived his prefence of > he ucmolt confequence in England. Sunday morning, at half paft two o'clock, when the conltable of Broad- ftreet- ward was going his rounds, he found that a watchman belong ing to that ward had fallen dead out of his watch box. He was well at two o'clock, and cried the hour. T u e f d a y laft was married, at Brighthelmftone, Mr. Patch, of Rotten- Dean, to Mrs. Tibbs, widow of Mr. Thomas Tibbs, late of Holborn. Tuefday morning was married, at St. Luke's, Old- ltreet, Mr. Evans, of Chifwell- ftreet, to Mrs. Cooke, of Bafing- lanc.

A H ACCOUNT of the late E A R T H Q U A K E S in CALASJRIA, S I C I L Y , & C. Gommunuatsd to the ROYAL SOCIETY by SIR W I L L I A M HAMILTON. ( Concluded ) ON the 17 I1 of May I left Medina, where I had been kindly and hofpitably ireated, and proceeded in my Speronara along tbe Sicilian coaft to tbe point of the entrance of the Faro, where I went afhore, and found a prieft who had been there the night between the 5th and 6rh of February, when the great wave paffed over that • point, carried off boats, and above twenty- four unhappy people, tearing up trees, and leaving fome hundred weight of filh it had brought with it on the dry land. He told me, he had been him'elf covered with the wave, and with difficulty faved his life. He at lirll faid the water was bot ; but BS I was curious to come at the truth of this faift, which would have concluded much, 1 aflted him if he was very fure of it I and being preifed, it came to be no more than the water having been as warm as it ufualiy is in fUmmer, He faid, the wave rofe to ajreat height, and came on with noife, and fuch rapidity, that it was impoffible to efcape. The tower on the point was half deflroyed, and a poor priell that was in it loll his life. From hence 1 croffed over to Scilla. Having met with my friend the Padre Minafi, a Dominican friar, a worthy man and an able naturalill, who is a native of Scilla} and is atlually employed by tlx academy cf Naples to give a defciipdon of the pba: r. omena that have attended the earthquakes in thefe parts, with his aififtance on 1 lie fpot, 1 perfeftly underltcod the nature of the formidable wave that was faid to have been boiling hor, and had certainly proved fatal to the Earon of the country, the Prince of Scilla, who was fwept off the fliore into the lea by this wave, with 24.73 of his unfortunate fubje'ts. The following is the f a d : the Prince cf Scilla having remarked, that duii. ng the firft horrid ( hock ( ivhich happened about noon the Cth of February) part of a rock near Sc 11a had been detached into the fea, and fearing that the jock of Scilly, on which his callle and town is £ . « ted, might alfo be detached, thought it fate- to prepare boats, and retire to a little porf or bench furrounded by rocks at the foot of the rock. The fecond ihock of the earthquake, a'ter midnight, detached a whole mountain, ( much higher thaa that of Scilly, and partly calcareous, and partly cretaceous), lituated be- • tWeen the Torre del Cavallo and the rock of Scilla. This having fallen with violence into the fea ( at that time perfectly calm) railed the fetal wave, which I have above del'cribed to have broken upon the ncck of land, called the Punta del Faro, in the ifland of Stilly, with fuch fury, which returning with great noife and celerity directly upon ' the beach, where the Prince and the unfortunate inhabitants of Scilla had taken refuge, either dafhed them with their boats and richell effefb againft the rocks, or whirled them into the fea 5 thofe whet had efcaped * ; i e f i i f t a n d greateil wave were carried off by a • fecond and third, which were lefs confulcrablc, end immediately followed the firll, I fpoke to • feveral wen, women, and children here, who had been cruelly maimed, and fome of whom had been carried into the fea by this unforefeen accident. Here, faid one, my head was forced through the door of the cellar, which he ihewed trie was There, faid another, wa » I drove into a barrel. Then a woman would fhew me her child, ail over deep wounds freni the ftones and timber, & c. that were mixed with the water, and dafhirtg about in this narrow port ; but all affured me, they had not perceived the leaft fympton of heat in th* water, though I dare fay, Sir, yotf will read many well attefted accounts of this water having been hot ; of many dead bodies thrown up which appeared to have been parboiled by it ; $ nd of many living perfons, who had evidently been fcalded by this hot wave: lo difficult is it to arrive at truth. Had 1 been fitisfied with the firft anfwer of the Piiefl at the Punta del F. iro, and fet it down in my journal, who could have doubted but that this wave had been of hot water? Now that we are well acquainted with the caufe of this fatal wave, we know it could not have been hot; but the teftimony of fo many unfortunate fufferers from it is decifne. A faft which I was told, and which was attefted by many here, is very extraordinary indeed: a uoman of Scilly, four months gone with child, and fwept into the fea by the wave, and was taken up alive, floating on her back at fome dift'ance, nine hours after. She 1 id not even mifcarry, and is now p; rfe£ lly well; and, had flie not been gone up into the country, they would have fhewn her to me. They told me, ( he had been uled to fwim, as do moll of the women in this part of Calabria. Her anxiety and fullering, however, hr. d arrived at fo great a pitch, that juft at the time that the boa-, which took her up, appeared, file v, as trying ; o force h; r head under water, to pu- a ; criodtoher milerable exiftence. The Padre Minafi told me another curious circumftance that happened in this neighbourhood, which to his knowledge was ftridlly true. A g; rl of about ei„ htce. i years of age, was buried under the ruins of a hou'e iix dais, having had her foot, at tie ancle, altaoft cu: off by, the ed^ e of a barrel that fell upon i t; the dull aid mortar flopped the blood 5 fhe never had the alhft. uice of a l'urgeon ; but the foot of i. felf dropped off, and the wound is perfectly h? aled without any other affiftance but that of raturr. If of fuch extraordinary circumft. mces, and ef hair breadth efcapes, an account was to be taken in all the deftroyed towns of Calabria Ultra and Sicily, they would, as I faid before, compofe a large volume, 1 have only recorded a few of the moft extraordinary, \ n d fuch as I had fioin the moft undoubted authority. In my~ way back to Naples ( where I arrived the 23d of May) - long the coaft of the two Calabrias an 1 Piincipar ro Citra, I only went on fliore at Trope. i, Pa la, and in the Bay of Palinurus. I f > und Tropea ( beautifully fituated on a rock overhanging the fea) but little damaged ; how- C- er, i ll th: inhabitants were in barracks. At Paula the fame. The fifhermcn here told me, t : ey continued to take a great ajbundance ot filh, as they had done ever fmce the conimencemt nt of the pvefent calamity. At Tropea, the 15th of May, there was a fevere fliock of an earthquake, but of a very fhort duration. There were five fliocks during my- ftay in Calabria and Sicily ; three of them rather alarming : and at Medina, 111 the night time, 1 conftantly felt a little tremor of the earth, which lias been ob • ferved by many of the Meffinefe. I am really afliamed, Sir, of fending fuch an unconneiled hafty extrait of my journal; but when I refle£ t, that unlefs I fend it off direfily, the Royal So ciety will be broken up for the fummer feafon, aad the fubjeft will become ftale before its next meeting; ot two evils 1 prefer to chirfe the lealt. Such rough draughts however ( though ever fo imperfe. t aud incorrect) have, as in paintb^ s, the me it ot a firll iketch, and a kind of fp rit that is often loft when the pidlure is corredily firilhed. It yoj confider the fatigue and hurry 0 the journey I have jult been taking, and, that in the midft of the preparations for my oth. r j - urney to England, wliich I propofe to begin to- morrow, I have been writing this account, 1 fhall hope then 10 be entitled to your indulgence for all its. imperfection* *. But befire I t;< ke my leave, I will juft fuin up the refult of my observations in Calibria and Sicily, and give you my realons for believing " that die prefent earthquakes are occafioned by tbe opera ion ol a volcano, the feat of which feems to lie deep, ei her under the bottom of the fea, between the ifland ofStrombs Ii andihe coaft of Calabria, or under the parts of the plain towards Oppi » ! o and Terra Nuova. If on a map of Italy, and with your conpafs ' on the fcale of Italian mi'cs, you were to meafuieoff 12, and then fixing your cen: ral point in the city of Oppido ( which appeared to me to be the fpot on which the earthquake had exerted its greateft force) form a circle ( the radii of which will be, as 1 juft faid, 22 miles) you will then include all tbe towns, villages, that have been utterly ruined, and the fpots where the greateft mortality has happened, and where there has been the molt vilible alterations on the face of the earth. Then extend your compafj on the fame fade to 72 miles preferving the fame center, and form another circle, you will include the whole of the countty that has any mark of having beep affected by the earthquake. I plainly oblerved a gradation in the damage done to the buildings, as alfo in the degree of mortality, in proportion as the countries were more or lefs diftant from this fuppofed center of ihe evil. One circumftance I particularly remarked ; if tivo towns were fttuated at an equal, had always fuffered greatly more by the fliocks of the earthquakes than the former; a fuf fic'ent proof to me of the caufe coming from beneath, as this muft naturally have been produftive. of fuch an effett. And 1 have reafon to believe, that the bottom of the fea, being ftill nearer the volcanic caufe, would be found ( could it be feen) to have fuffered even more than the plain i t f e l f; diflance from this center, the one on a hill, the other on a plain, or in a bottom, the latter but ( as yout will find in moft of the account! of the earthquake that are in the prefs, and which are numerous) the. pliilofophers, who do not eaftly abandon their ancient fyftems, mafic ( lie ' prefent earthquakes to proceed from the high mountain of the Appennines that divide Calabria Ultra' fuch as Monte Dejo, Monte Cauloif, and Af-' pramonte; I would afk them this fimplequeftion, did the jEolian or Lipari illands ( all which role undoubtedly from the bottom of the fea by volcanic cxplofions at differeir, and perhaps very diftant periods) o> ve their birth to the Appenines in Calabria, or to veins of minerals in the bowels of the earth, and under the bottom of the fea ? Stromboli an aftive volcano, and probably the youngeft of thofe iflands, is not above 50 miles from the parts of Calabria that have been mod Effected by the late earthquakes. The vertical fliocks, or, in other words, thofe whofe impu- lfe was from the bottom upwards, have be.- n the moft deftruftive to the unhappy towns in the plain ; did they proceed from Monte Dejo, Monte Caulone, or Afparmon. e ? In fhort, the idea I have of the prefent local earthquakes is, that they have b - en caufed by the fame kind of matter that gave birth to the ^ Eolian or Lipari iflands; tha', perhaps, an opening may have been tirade at the bottom of the fea, and moll probably between Stromboli and Cal-. bria Ultra ( lor from that pitarter all agree, that the fubterraneous noife.! leetn to have proceeded) ; and that the foundation of a new iflatid or volcano may have been laid, though it may be ages, which to nature are but moments, before it is completed, and appt ars above the furface of the fea. Nature is ever ac tive, but her actions are, > n general, carried on fo very flowly, as fcarcely to be perceived by mortal eye, or recorded in the very ( I1011 fpace of what we c. ll hiftory, let it be ev€ r fo ancient. Perhaps too, the whole deftrudlion I have been defcribing may have proceeded limply from the exhalations cf confined vapours, - generated by the fermentation of fuch minerals as produce volcanoes, which have efcaped where th'- y met with the lead ieliftar. ee, and mull naturally in a greater degree have affr& ed the plain than the high and " more folid grounds around" . it. When tho account of the Royal Academy of Naples is pubiifx. ed, with maps, plans, and drawings, of the curious fpot 1 have defcribed, ibis rude and imperfect account will, I batter myfelf, be of. life ; without the plans and drawings you well know, Sir, the great difficulty there is in making one's felt intelligible on fuch a fubjeft. I have the honour to be, & c. * Q/ jp- amut ergo quid fit quod t* rram ah infimo moveat, o( uid, — 1; KC ex quibus eautis accioanc cigua res eft exc . ti. See the whole paflage very applicable here.
