WE have the satisfaction of hearing at last, that the Empress, our Sovereign is now out of dan- ger, and recovering slowly from the relapse of the, fever. She is at Czarskow, where she takes the air daily. It's forty miles from this capital. Accounts from Petersburgh mention, that her Im- perial Majesty has lately given a striking proof of her liberality and respcCt for men of talents. The inge- nious Mr. Muller, a German by birth, was several years since invited by Count Panin to Petersburgh, where he wrote his celebrated History of Russia ; which gave the Empress so much satisfaction, that ( he honoured him with the order of St. Uladimir. On his death some months since, hearing that his family was not in a very prosperous situation, she settled a handsome pension upon his widow ; and finding the younger Muller worthy of his father, presented hi n with letters of nobility and a place in her houshold. Extract of a letter from Philadelphia, July 10. " Sunday last the 4th of July, being the anniversary of our Independence, thirteen changes were rung on ' the bells of Christ Church. In commemoration of this great and glorious event, a company of select citizens, and members of the Cincinnati, who were in town, assembled, the two subsequent days, at the City Ta- vern, where the occasion was celebrated with that joy and festivity the ever- memorable idea of Independence must have created and inspired." The Emperor and the French are about converting the monasteries and valuable church endowments into ( ome valuable public purposes. Is there not in Eng. land an equivalent in our waste lands, and ought we not, as neither charter or custom guards them, to em- ploy them immediately in the service of population and industry ? since repeated experience has convinced us, that the land, which goes under the name of waste land, is, in every part where it has been tried, as fruitful as any land now cultivated. On the heels of the above improvement, ought to follow a revision jid meliorat'on of yojr poor laws. Enormous sums squandered, God knows how, or where, and no diminution of poverty, nor encouragement of industry, to shew it. The only receipts tavern bills, the only advantage to the greediness of the glutton. They who have had opportunities of observing upon the councils and actions of the Emperor, all. fry in Commendation of him, that firmness of temper is one of his chief charactersticks. He is not, more delibe- rate in forming a decision, than immovably determined in his adherence to it, when formed. Before the death of his mother, the Emperor very prudently appeared so reserved, - that no judgment could be formed of his sentiments on any particular topic, or of his disposition respecting political conduCt in general ; when, however, the Empress's departure had released him from restraint, his character immedi- ately thus broke forth, and in each material occurrence of his government, his mind has shewed itself original, independent, and tenacious. Examples in proof of what is said above, arise from' the part he took in the armed neutrality, the prin- ciples of religious toleration which he has put in prac- tice, the steps towards an abolition of monasteries, Sic. and no doubt a little time will add to these his conduct towards the Dutch. The only prognostic in- telligently to be ventured, as to the issue of that oc- currence, is this— that the navigation of the Scheldt will immediately become free. A circumstance of a most singular nature was last week brought to public view at the quarter- sesson held at Kingston, for the county of Surry. A seleCt party of gentlemen and ladies, amongst whom were a pair of Benedicts and their spouses, some little time since paid a visit to a certain town in the county, and as they proposed spending the evening, and taking up their abode at the inn at which they put up, it was necessary to secure beds. It so happened that the company Could not be accommodated without making use of a two- bedded room, and- in this room the married gen- tlemen and ladies agreed to repose themselves. After a joyous supper, the glass flew merrily round, and the ladies withdrew to their apartments with the door un- locked, no doubt in expectation of their beloved part- ners. The gentlemen kept it up, and which they were quaffing and carousing, one of ths company, a wag of the first class, no doubt on't, . took an oppor- tunity to slip into the ladies room, who had resigned themselves into the arms of sleep, and very dexterously interchanged the wearing apparel from one of the beds 10 the other. The gentlemen, upon their approach to their respective beds, each of them seeing his wife's habiliments, and being unwilling to disturb her, im- mediately jumped into bed ; and in this situation actu- ally continued all night ; and it was r. ot till the usual time of getting up in the morning, that the mistake was discovered. The confusion that ensued is infi- nitely easier to be conceived than described. The ladies were transfused into blushes, and the gentlemen had no other resource than the brandy bottle, whilst the wag had decamped, and the rest of the company, the family and attendants, were seen laughing and tit- tering in every corner of the house. In order to ob- tain some revenge for this most extraordinary trick, a bill of indictment wis preferred against the party for a misdemeanor : and here again fortune favoured this blade of refined fun and humour, for the Grand Jury threw out the bill. Sunday a violent affray happened in the Borough. Some seamen, chiefly Irishmen, having disagreed the day before, they on Sunday afternoon, to the number of about forty, met by appointment about half pad four, behind St. Thomas's Hospital, each being pro- vided with a large stick. The contending parties ranging themselves on opposite sides of the street, the battle was begun by one of each party, who fought with their bludgeons with dreadful fury, till the skull of one was fractured, and the other was so entirely co- vered with his own and his adversary's blood, both being dript, as precisely to resemble an ancient Briton ir. the times when our ancestors disguised the natural colour of. their skins with red earth, abounding in Cornwall, and other parts of the island. The man whose skull was fraCtured, was taken into St. Bartho- lomew's hospital. After the above, the other fought ( the number on both sides seeming - to be equal) by general assaults, and in different skirmishes, for about thirty- five minutes, when the interference of the neighbours and some peace officers occasioned them to disperse ; but many of the combatants were fo terribly bruised and wounded, that the loss of some lives is thought to be inevitable. Ths unfortunate creatures, who, through a hope of becoming at oncc men of fortune in America, in- dent themselves to Captains of Ships for their passage, are actually sold after the same manner as the Negroes of America ; and as the latter are in their complexion jet black, they are called Negro slaves ; when the people who, are brought in this way from hence are called Stiled slaves. No other distinction whatever . is made between them either as to work, food, or raiment. Extract of a Letter from Dublin, Sept. « 8. " Sunday morning, about two o'clock, the house of Mr. Hayden, jun. baker, in Ash- street, was broke open by four villains, with their faces blackened, who hav- ing effected their entrance by filing off the knobs of the window bars, forced into the room where Mrs. Hayden lay ( Mr. Hayden being out of town) and, on her making an alarm, they dragged her by the hair, and threatened her with instant death, if she did not desist. They plundered the house of cash to the amount of two hundred guineas, and got clear off with their booty. " We hear from good authority, that one of the fellows tried and found guilty of robbing- the Hon. Miss Burke, daughter of Lord Viscount Mayo, at the late assizes of Naas, has impeached some very respeCt- able characters of the counties of Kildare and Carlow, as acccssaries and accomplices in a number of attrocious felonies and highway robberies, committed in the course of six months ; one of the persons so charged is said to be a wealthy farmer, and another to be pos- sessed of a freehold worth two hundred ,.; pounds a year. The event of the negociation now carrying on at Paris, by our Commissaries, involving in it commercial events of the. Very first moment, will be among the first business of Parliament after the present recess. The smuggling of American tobaccoes in the chan- nel is notorious ; whole cargoes have been brought on shore without duties, within these three weeks past. " ' A curious method is now using in Pensylvania by the Americans, to secure themselves plenty of cash. Every guinea they receive, they get a piece taken out of it, to reduce it to a certain value, which confines it among them, as such will not pass elsewhere ; and though it may appear strange, it is a truth, very little loss is sustained by any' individual in doing so, only the price of the cutting ; for the bit taken off they sell, and as it is a general resolution, no one suffers, as it benefits the whole, by keeping among themselves plenty of specie. A person from Scotland, now in Bal- timore, in writing to his friends here the other day, mentions the circumstance, by having good employ- ment in cutting coin for that purpose. SUNDAY'S POST. LONDON, Friday, OCTOBER 15. Extract of a letter from Poland, Aug. 31. " Our accounts from Lithuania contain nothing but details of the magnificent preparations making by Prince de Radzival Waiwode, of Wilna, for the re- ception of his Majesty, at his castle of Nieswiez : emong the rest, upon the most pleasant adjacent fpot to his Chateau, the Priacc has built a temporary vil- lage, the cottages of which are finished in the most elegant rustic stile, and replete with every convenience ; they are designed to lodge several persons of distinc- tion. The Prince has not only had new liveries for all his servants, but has new- clothcd all his troops, 2000 in number." Berlin, Sept. 19. They write from Hirschberg, ir Silesia, that the linen manufactories of that province are so fully employed since the peace, that they can hardly supply all the demands. Considerable quan- tities of linen are ordered for Spain and England. The King has established a spun- silk manufactory, like those in Italy. Extract of a Letter from Cadiz, Sept. 14, " For some time a fever has raged here, which, without being epidemic, is so general, that very few persons have escaped. It begins commonly by a pain in the head and teeth, the fever follows, and continues in some for 54 hours, in others, for three or four days. It is cured by cordials and diluents, with a gentle pur gative at ths close. Blood letting must be avoided. The disorder and its cure are so well known, that few persons have applied to a physician. Comte O'Reilly, our governor, having procured the best account of the progress cf the disease, has enused the means of cure to be distributed among the poor ; as yet no ill con- sequence has attended the disorder, and it has been amongst us but a short time. It appeared first at the camp of Gibraltar, at Checlana, the island of Leon, Port Royal, and the city of Port St. Mary, without any pernicious consequences, " The quantity of ships which arrive every day from Buenos Ayres at our different ports, prove the active revival of trade with that province ; it will be greater and more extended still, if a communica- tion with the provinces of Paraguay be made more easy." Extract of a Letter from Paris, Oct. 4. " Two young Gens d'Armes, who were detained in the Conciergerie, endeavoured to break out. As they met with a little more indulgence than the rest of the prisoners, they found means 10 procure pistols and ammunition, and fired upon the gaolers, one of whom they killed outright, wounded another mortally, and Severely beat a third ; however, being unable to force one of the doors, they found it impossible to escape. As they threatened to fire on whoever approached them, no better method could be found than to pump water into the chamber ; and when they were on tbe point of being suffocated, they surrendered. They arc condemned to be broke alive 0n the wheel." Extract of a Letter frem Dunkirk. " I blush for the meaniness of the fellows here be- longing to the customs. On coming away from this placc, they always examine- whether you have any thing prohibited about you; I mean, they come un- der a pretence of examining ; for if you will give them only a sixpence, you may bring off what you please. Now our English gentlemen are more respectable in imposition. " 1 must not see the King robbed," said one of them in the late reign. " True," answered a smuggler ( at the same time placing a guinea on each of his eyes). " 1 am sure you now can't see !" " Put another in my mouth," said the officer, then I can't speak !" But sixpence here will do. " Some London sharpers are here, picking up mo- ney by cards, and other means of defrauding : I saw one of them severely handled a few evenings since, for having used false dice j they were found to be loaded with quicksilver 1 and a punishment for his in- famy being necessarily suggested, and the mode left to the sense of the company, he was sentenced to be horse- whipped, and to swallow the dice. He fell on his knees, and begging the latter part of the sentence might be remitted, it was agreed to, and he was smartly flagellated with a postillion's whip, and I into the street." We have just learned from good authority, that the ship which lately sailed down the Scheldt under Im- perial colours, was fired upon by the three Dutch fri- gates who stopped her 1 upon which she struck her colours, and surrendered, but was afterwards per- mined to return to Antwerp. It is generally believed that the Emperor will con- sider this conduc of the captains of the Dutch fri- gates as a declaration and commencement of hostilities on the part of their High Mightinesses. Saturday the following accident happened at Grin- stead- green, near Ash, in Kent: as a servant to Mr. Tookey was taking up some hay from a cart standing under the door of a loft, the fork he made use of slipped out of his hands, and one of the prongs thereof pitch- ing upon the head of Mr. Tookey's nephew, who was in the hay cart, stooping to buckle, his shoe, the youth received so terrible a wound that he died the next morning. We are assured that upwards of 30,000 persons have visited the Pantheon, to see Mr. Lunardi atul his Balloon. By the original agreement between that gentleman and the proprietors, the profits of the ex- hibitien were to have been divided equally between them j the latter, however, have since, with a libe- rality that does them great honour, voluntarily con- sented to allow Mr. Lunardi two- thirds, and to receive one- third for themselves. Extract of a letter from Dover, OS. 4, " Not long since a gay young man came down (• this city with a young woman, the ward of Mr. Payne, and demanded her fortune. Mr. Payne had good rea- son to suspeCt they were not married, and therefore declined giving up his trust ; but at length did consent to let the pretended husband see the writings, & c, in the presence of his fon, when the adventurer, instead of returning, put the papers in his pocket. On this a scuffle enfued between the parties to recover the pa- pers, in which the wretch who had seized them cut off the first joint of Mr. Payne's finger. A mortifica- tion ensued, and the consequence has been, that two fruitless amputations have taken place, and Mr. Payne is now resigned to meet his dissolution ; but what is very remarkable has has never once expresed the smallest degree of resentment against the assassin who was the the occasion of it," The commutation tax, as it is called, or the taking the duty off the tea and placing it on the windows, makes a very absurd and whimsical change 111 many cases. For instance, the Antiquarian Society will have io 1. per annum to pay, although we never heard of that venerable body drinking tea together. Had the society consisted of old women, they probably would have taken advantage of the cheap tea when it comes j but when that will be, the best almanack- maker among them cannot tell. A very curious marriage was lately celebrated in Drury- lane, which strongly marks the progress of folly and diaaipation. A man of some considerable fortune was kept for a week in a bagnio in a state of intoxication, and became ao infatuated as to promise immediate marriage to one of the most common prosti- tutes of the placc. Care was taken that he should be kept as devoid of reason as possible, until the business was finishcd, which was done with all the splendor of Old Drury. He gave a grand dinner to the mother abless, and as many nuns as she pleased to invite and thus a gentleman, who perhaps deserved a better fate, was hurried by intoxication and proportioned infatuation, into a life of shame and misery. Let the youth of spirit and intrigue read this, and learn to avoid those haunts, and that company, where the ambition is to level all to the same standard of unhap- piness and debase human nature by the corrupt influ- ence of its dregs ! / A few days since two brothers in the service of Mess. Beaufoy and Co. distillers at Lambeth, sus- tained on their backs, and walked some paces there- with, the enormous weight of a ton, one carrying eleven, and the other nine hundred. This feat of strength was performed for a small wager with their fellow- workmen, and to prevent any accident, the loads were flung from a crane, so that to free them- selves from the pressure of the burthen, they had only to stoop two or three inches. Tuesday last, at two o'clock in the afternoon, one of the most curious balloons that ever went oS in this country was launched out of Mr. Wilson's garden at Chelsea, for the amusement of his friends. It had sixteen beautiful variegated dripes, made of paper, and filled with rarefied air, twelve feet diameter j and to try the experiment, it took up a large white Pome- ranian dog, fastened on a car. About four o'clock the same afternoon it was taken up by a labourer, in a vale, near Epping, in Essex, about eighteen miles dis tance, and was brought back the next morning for the reward of one guinea, paid by the gentleman. The dag was in perfeCt safety ; but in his aerial flight he re- ceived a few drops of volatile spirit on fire, which makes him look as if he had been beautifully spot- ted, • * * This PA P e R sent weekly to any Part of GREAT- BRITAIN ( FREE OF POSTAGE) by Order addrefied as above; or to Mejfrs.

" The Farmers- General have had occasion to be much dissatisfied with the cargoes of tobacco, which • have been imported for some time past from Virginia to Nantz. They have laid their complaints before the Comte de Vergenes, who has communicated them to Dr. Franklin. Petersburgh, Sept. it. Her Imperial Majesty, our august sovereign, arrived unexpectedly here, from Czarsko Zelo, in the evening of the 16th ; no person having notice of her return, the apartments of the pa- lace were not ready, and her Majesty was obliged to lodge for some days at the Hermitage. On the 19th her Majesty had a drawing- room, and appeared in public. Their Imperial Highness are still at Carchi- ness, where they will remain some days. Genoa, Sept, 18. For some evenings past this city, and indeed the whole territorv, have been most awfully entertained by a most extraordinary meteor ; it ap- peared like a luminous globe, in the shape of a comet with a tail, and was so brilliant at times that sparks seemed to drop from it; it seemed to come from the Levant. A great draught now prevails in the island of Ber mudas, insomuch that there is scarcely any grass left for the horses and cattle ; the inhabitants also feel a want of rain water. An Ordinance has passed the Court of Versailles., directing all governors and commanders of the French' islands, and other ports in the East- Indies, to treat all American ships in the same manner as those sailing un- der French colours. There is now setting up at Paris, a public Aerostat, sixty feet high, and twenty- four in diameter, which ts to be ready for its departure by the 20th or 25th of this month, and will carry six travellers with ballast and provisions for their voyage. It is to be hired by such ladies or gentlemen as chuse to make an excur- sion in the air, and the price i; to he 15 louis for each person ; the subscriber, to take their turn according to the priority of their application. The Spaniards are a thoughtful, gloomy, and re- vengeful people. When the last rebellion took place, respecting the new mode of wearing their hats, the government had n0 notice of the general temper of the people ; all was sour and fedate, till the hour of ac- tion, when, with one impetuous torrent of exertion, they broke the bonds of civil rule, and drove the' monarch from the capital. A gentleman who lately left Madrid assures us, that the people here are uni- versally violent against the present minister, to whom they impute all their disgraccs both before Gibraltar and Algiers; and he observes too, that though the of their government forbids public com. plaint, yet the people in general are is as ripe for revolt as they ever were in the time of the Italian Cardinal. By a letter fiom Nova Scotia, we arc informed, that a schooner belonging to Liverpool, in. that pro- vince, was lately cast away at the island of st. Paul, near Cape Breton, in a gale of wind at night, the people with difficulty saved their lives, and arrived at Halifax, being six in number.. They were ten days on the island, and built a boat with only three jack knives and a plane, sufficien to carry them to Spanish River, where they met with a vessel that carried them to Hallifax. ^ The same letter adds, that two transports have ar- rived there from Florida, with Loyalists, who were ob- liged to abandon- that country. Extract of a. Letter from Providence, Aug. !- V " On Wednesday last, Capt. Christopher Whipple, in the sloop America, of this port, arrived here in 23 days from New Orleans. He lay six months in the river Missisippi, in hopes of obtaining permission to trade with the Spaniards, and although he purchased such permission for a large sum, was forbid to trade, under no less penalty than the confiscation of the ves- sel and cargo. A guard of Spanish soldiers was placed on board, and another on the shore opposite to his vessel. Various artifices were practised to induce him to sell a small part of his cargo, and some persons, disguised as soldiers, & c. on board, offering very high prices for trifling articles, in- order that a pretext might be formed for seizing the vessel, one'of whom was afterwards seen 011 shore dressed as a person of rank. Capt. Whipple further informs, that a number of British vessels were seized while he lay ia the river, and that it was said no American vessel would be permitted to trade, till a line shall be ascer- tained between the United States and the Spanish ter- ritory on the Mississippi." Newhaven, Aug. 13. Sunday last, about foar o'clock in the afternoon, the dwelling- house of Capt. Israel Seymour, of Hartford, was struck with lightning, and he instantly killed. The lightning first entered the chimney, and came down in four directions, Capt. Seymour was standing at the front door near two other persons, who received a violent shock, but soon reco- vered. The house is much damaged. Last week Titus Butler being convicted before the Honourable Supreme Court then sitting at Litchfield, of counterfeiting Loan Office Certificates, was sen- tenced to receive twenty stripes. to pay 501. damages, and be imprisoned four years. The full part of the sentence was inflicted last Saturday. Baltimore, July 30. Capt, James of the ship In- trepid, arrived here from Limerick, informs us, that on his passage at day- light in the morning of the 9th ult. in lat. 39 N. long. SjW, he fell in with an armed vessel that made overtures of speaking with him ; and when she came within hail, fired a broadsidc into him; but Capt. Jam's having the advantage of her in sailing, happily got clear. On the 12th he touched at the island of Fyall, the Governor of which advised him, that the hostile vessel was a Barbary cruiser, sup- posed to be from Sallee, and had taken two Portuguese vessels ; the crew of one oi which had escaped on shore at Tercera, and reported that two armed vessels from the same country, were cruising off the Azores. This information, , it is to be hoped, will- he received, as is designed, as a friendly and seasonable caution to masters of vessels, not to be too ready to open a correspondence with vessels hear the afore- mentioned island. ' A letter from St. Mary's,- in Scilly, says, that the vessels fitted out from thence for - the herring fishery, are returned fully loaded, having met with uncommon success ; that they were so over- stocked, they offered to the Scotch a great price for casks, but they would not sell them any ; and they offered 2o0o herrings for a single barrel,' but could not get one ; and there- fore were obliged to return home sooner than they in- tended. Without offence to the high spirit and overbearing temper of the Volunteer corps, it may be suggested, that habits of industry in that kingdom would make them happier, richer, and a more free people, than wasting their time and money in useless parade of mi- litary manoeuvres. extract of a Letter from Dublin, oct. 4. " The following numbers of his Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council, are nominate ! as a land- ing committee, to watch over the commercial concerns of this kingdom, and arrange the protecting duties for tile inspection of parliament . The Lord Chancellor, ' - The Earl of Miltown, - The Earl of Howth, The Earl of Roden, The Earl of Clanwilliam. Lord Muskerry, . Right Hon. Thomas Conolly Right hon. Edward Carey, and Right Hon. Thomas Orde." Friday morning, in Smithfield, a drover known by the nick- name of Scamper, quarrelled and fought with another of the same profession, and out of vexa tion at being conquered he took a large cafe knife from his pocket, and laying his hand on the rails. to which the cattle are tied, chopped off two of his fin gers between the first and second joints. Thompson, the poet, once said, that he did not despair to live to see the time, when a man would call for his wings, as he calls for his boors or horse. But he lived not to come so near this phenomenon as we have done. The general conversation turns so much 011 the ambition of ballooning it, that, but for the expence, there hardly would be an earthly- minded man in London. But we may, with some little alte- ration, apply the advice of the greatest of men, " Let him that flyeth take heed left he fall." The merchant ships bound to Jamaica, are taking in bricks and tiles for their ballast, in order to repair the damages done by the late hurricane there. A correspondent thinks that what Mr. Puff ( in the Critic) says cf the players, may with great propriety be applied to some newspaper writers. " When they have a got a good thing, they do not know when Nothing but Siddons ! Sid- to have done with it. dons ! Siddons ! from day to day. The emperor and the Dutch are trifling objects, and the present ministry beneath all consideration, while the public must be pestered by the ridiculous squabbles of players, thereby magnifying them into a consequence which does- not belong to them. It is- now too late to scutinize into the private characters of actors and actresses, unless we wished to annihilate the stage. The ladies are now setting their caps at the aerial voyager. The cat and dog " had their day— and now the question is, " Is Mr. Lunardi married ? Lord, he is a charming man I Is this picture like him ? Vastly— Well, positively, I do love a man of spirit." Yesterday morning a man was apprehended and se- cured in prifon, charged with being concerned in robbing the mail last Monday night, between North- ampton and Harborough. He proves to be a butcher in Spital- fields Market, WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDON, Monday, OCTOBER 18. This day arrived the Mails from France and Holland. Leipsic, Oct. x.

Baltimore, Aug. 2. The legislature of Virginia, besides other testimonies of gratitude, have taken mea- sures for procuring a statue of G. Washington, Esq. to be of the finest marble, and best workmanship, with the following inscription on its pedestal, viz.' " The General Assembly of the CommonWealth of Virginia, nave caused this statue to be erected, as a: monument of affection and gratitude to George Washi- ington,' who, uniting to the endowments of the hero, the virtues of the patriot, and exerting both in esta- blishing the liberties of his country, has rendered his name dear to his fellow citizcns, and given the world an immortal example of true glory. Done in the year of Christ —.—, and in the year of the Common- wealth ." - The Dutch have proclaimed war against the Empe- ror according to his own sense of that preliminary, for he published that he would consider the least insult to his ships, as a declaration of war, it rests with his Imperial Majesty to proceed with the spirit and firm- ness with which he begun, or to yield up the point to a nation encumbered with every difficulty that makes war a calamity, and unprovided with an ally to soften its horrors. The intended Irish Congress approaches, and in all probability will bring matters in that kingdom to some kind of crisis. At present a spirit of turbulence and folly disgraces most of their proceedings. Letters from Leghorn, dated Sept. 17, mention, that the Algerine corsairs are exceedingly numerous in the Mediterranean, and have lately taken several Spanish vessels, the crews of which the barbarians treat with great inhumanity. The Moors have also seized . some Dutch and SwediSh ships, which they suffered to proceed on their voyage, after committing, some petty acts of piracy.' ; In Scotland, the several Committees for carrying on the business of a parliamentary reform, and, imprim, a reform in the mode of chusing magistrates. still con- - tinue their exertions, with mildness and perseverence, in Aberdeen, none of the largest cities in Scotland, there are two parties, which like ministry and oppo- sition watch each others motions, and are true to their purposes.. The body of the inhabitants, however, are ' decidedly 0n the part of the reformers, while the Mi- nisterial party, arc driven to the common shifts of protracting matters, and putting a smiling face on a frowning heart. From the LONDON GAZETTE, Oct. 16. At the Court of St. James's, the 15th of October, P R E S F. N T, The KING'S Most Excellent Majesty in Council. His Majesty in Council has this day pleased to order, that the Parliament, which Stands prorogued to Tues- day, the 26th Instant, October, Should be further prorogued to Thursday, the fecond day of December next. On- Saturday evening Mrs. Jackson, and daughter, having drank tea at a friend's house at Wandsworth, not knowing, the inhabitants had discontinued the watch and lights from Clapham to London, came through Clapham as thinking themselves perfectly safe. After they ha: d passed the Swan at Stockwell, the coach was stopped by four footpads, who, after open- ing the coach door, made the ladies come out of the coach, and stripped them of their purses, buckles, and everything of value about then, swearing all the time in a most Shocking nannsr, they would cut . them in pieces if they said a tingle w ord, and made the coach go round to Vauxhall turnpike. Sunday morning early, a gentleman arrived express from Weyhill, with an account that a dreadful fire had Broke out there about nine o'clock on Friday morning, which had entirely consumed the booths en both sides, called the Farnham- row, with the hops therein to a . very large amount. These hops we're all of the Farn- han growth, and had been purchased there, during the fair of Tuesday and Wednesday last by the several dealers from the West of England and London. Monday morning last, about one o'clock, the doors of St. Botolph, Aldersgate, were found open by the watch ; upon examining the inside of the church, the thieves had Stolen the gold fringe from the pulpit cloth and cushion, and from the cloth at the altar. It is supposed they secreted themselves in the church, af- ter the evening lecture was over, and by that means watched a favourable opportunity to get off undis- covered. Friday night a number of Sir Sampson Wright's of robbers who have long infested the fields in- the neighbourhood of the Shepherd and Shepherdess; all the runners but one Concealed themselves, while he walked along the path as travelling towards Islington, when he was suddenly stopped by two' footpads, armed with cutlasses ; upon which the other runners jumped up, and aeized them. They were immediately carried to Bow- street Friday evening a fellow went to the Coach and Horses alehouse. at the bottom of Clerkenwell- green, and ordered a pint of beer and change for a guinea, to Mr. Brackney's, a butcher, in the neighbourhood. Near Mr. Brackney's door the fellow waited for the draw- boy, and taking the silver from him, told him to change the pint for a pot of beer, and: then made off. It is strange that through neglect of cautioning their servants, publicans Should Suffer themselves to be daily imposed upon by so stale a trick as the above. Last Tuesday at noon dav, a most daring robbery was committed, within twenty yards of Twickenham, in the sight of many people passing along : As William Heckford and Stephen Cole, Esqrs, were returning home to dinner, from Brentford, where they had been to hold a sessions, they were attacked by two highwaymen, well mounted, armed with horse- pistols, and their faces covered with handkerchiefs, who, with dreadful imprecations, and a brutality of behaviour unwarrantable, as no resistance whatever was made, took their money, watches, rings, & c. from them, and rode hastily towards Isleworth. When highway robberies are arrived at that pitch to be committed at noon day, in a public road, in the sight of several pas- sengers, who is safe from their depredations— sunshine is now no security On Wednesday in the afternoon, a stage coach from' the North, was stopped by two highwaymen just on the other side of Barnet, who robbed the passengers of a considerable sum of money, and their watches. It is supposed that they had received information that same money was sent up by the coach, as. one of them dis- mounted in order to search, but seeing some people at a distance come riding along, he mounted again, and both rode off full Speed acrol's the common. The Lord Warden and the Magistrates of Dover have fixed their sessons to commence immediately after the sessions at the Old Bailey closed, for the pur- pose of trying young Dixon for the felony, Should he escape being convicted for the murder of Linton. The promise of pardon made to old Dixon, was not made by any magistrate, or even common constable, but by a friend of the perfon whefe houfe had been broke open. The public stand indebted to the land- lady of the Ship inn, in Dover, for the discovery, which was made by mere accident; lifting up the box in which the old man had the tankards and spoons, the unusual weight created suspicion ; the box was imme- diately opened, and the silversmith sent for who had been robbed, the property being a part of what he had lost Dixon, who was walking unconcerned upon the quay, was taken into custody, and told, as above, that if he discovered where the watches were, he should not be injured. Extract of a letter from. Dublin, Oct. 11. " Sunday night last, between the hours of seven and eight o'clock, one of the most daring acts of violence was committed on the person of Mr. James Murphy, an eminent Skinner in Wattling- street, ever known in this city.— Sitting by his parlour fire, all the family being out, except a girl and himself, a person rapped at the door, enquiring whether Mr. Murphy was at home, and on being answered in the affirmative, desired the girl to inform him, that a gentleman wanted to speak to him. Mr. Murphy desired the gentleman might walk in, which he refused ; upon which he got up, and went to the parlour door, aSking, who wanted him The answer he received was, " You villain, have we caught you at last, " the ruffian at the same time pulling him forcibly by the breast towards the street, giving the girl a blow on the head with a pistol, and blowing the candle out. He had fcarce got outfide the door, when he was Surrounded by seven or eight villains, who, with dreadful imprecations, vowed they would have his life, snapped two different pistols at him, which fortunately burnt priming, and struck at him repeatedly with swords and Sticks. The fellow who first laid hold of him, and whom he seized, snapped also a pistol, which had no other ill conse- quence than Singeing his hand with the powder.— Providentially he got loose from them, and running back to his own door, that fortunately remained open, he had the presence of mind instantly to Shut it, which ' proved the means of faving his life. The villains finding thenselves disappointed in their purpofe, de- molished the windows and globe over the hall door, at at the same time roaring out, with most terrible execrations, " take that for your apprentices" A grocer, who lives next door, upon the first alarm, was running to his assistance, but was stopped by a fellow- putting a pistol to his breast, and another execrable vil- lain had the unparalelled audacity to put a pistol to the breast of Mr. Troy, who lives in the said ftreet, walked with him ten or a dozen doors from the scene of action, and then snapped the pistol at him, but happily with- out effect " Yesterday Wm. Dalton, convicted of uttering inflammatory speeches, tending to disturb the public peace, and incite the people to murder the Right Hon. John FoSter, and for riotously assembling, with divers persons, and burning the said Mr. Foster in effigy ; and John Courtney, for an assault and rescue of the said Dalton, when taken up by a warrant of the High Sheriff of the county, received sentence at the Court- house at Kilmainham ; Dalton to be publicly whipped from that town to Mount- Brown, imprisoned for three months, and find security for his future good behaviour, and Courtney to be fined one mark, and discharged. LONDON Tuesday, OCTOBER 19. Paris, Oci. 7. They write from Toulouse, that an Arret has been published by the Council of State, which prohibits the exportation of French grain into the kingdom of Spain. It is not known what to attri- bute this prohibition to, It is said that the Parliament of Toulouse oppose the execution of this Arret, which will be very prejudicial to the trade of the inhabitants of Adge, Cette, and Vendres. A correspondent says, " I know not why it is, out So it is, that a French lady can say, and even write, without going beyond the bounds of decorum, that which would not pass uncensured from the pen of a British lady. Whether this indulgence arises from the ease of the French language, or the free and easy manner of that happy nation, I will not say, but let the following extract of a letter I received from a lady of that country, whole virtue, whose wit, and whose elegance is inferior to none, determine : ' I will tell you a piece of Mons. St. Germain's wit and humour. You know that Louis XVI. fetched this man from his retreat, and made him secretary at war. He his not only the greatest, but one of the wittiest men in Fiance, and is also of the gayest and most sprightly disposition. Not many days since he was present when the King and the Queen were at dinner. The King had a good appetite, and eat heartily, while the Queen, unable to eat any thing, by way of amusement, began to pelt the King with little pellets of bread, which, however, his Majesty did not observe, till one of them struck him on his nose ; upon which, turning to the Count, he faid, " What would you do, St. Germain, Should red hot bullets he fired at you in this manner ?"—" Faith, Sire, ( replied the Count) I would spike up the piece."— But, Sir, I must obferve, that the translation of the Count's Short reply cannot, I fear, be rendered into English with that zeft with which it was served up at the King's table : The French language turns upon easy pivots, which gives it superiority to all others in such matters as the Count touched upon." The following is handed about as part of the plan now under contemplation of government, for convert- ing the waste Ciown lands to purposes of national utility i — The lands are to be divided into lots or parcels, a number of which are to be sold or leased out every year, by commissioners, to be appointed for that purpose ; but the annual alienation u not to ex- ceed a limited measurement of ground, least the too sudden creation of new farmers should decrease the value of the lands already in a State of cultivation ; the purchasers and renters are to be exempted from the land- tax for a certain number of years after the ground ii broke up; and divers other privileges are to he granted for encouraging the cultivation thereof. On Saturday, pursuant to his advertisement, Mr. Blanchard took his fourth aerial voyage from the Military Academy, Little Chelsea,— The success of Mr. Lunardi's experiment, and the knowledge that Mr. Blanchard has formerly succeeded thrice, were so prevalent in solving the doubts of English infidelity, that a much greater crowd assembled in the gardens and grounds, roads, houses, and near the Military Aca- demy, than we ever remember to have seen. Exactly at twelve, ( although as to this matter watches may vary) or as some watches proved five or six minutes after, Mr. Blanchard and Mr. Sheldon went into the gallery, in the Shape of a boat, which was affixed to the balloon, and after several Signals, and letting off a small gilt balloon in order to ascertain the direction of the wind, they afcended above the heads of the spectators in the garden, and then descended at a little distance in the same place. Immediately they ascended again, and mounting over the wall descended, but not so far as the ground in the neighbouring field.— On this they threw out a great coat, and some ballast, which were found too heavy, and mounted a third time, with great velocity, and a seeming perfect command of the machine. The wind was North East, and of course the balloon obeyed. Some pretended that they varied their course before they were out of sight, but we could not perceive this, although we had several advantages of situation. In about a quarter of an hour the balloon became invisible. The travellers displayed their banners, as lone as they could be seen. The flags were French and English, in honour of the countries ta which Mr. Blanchard and Mr. Sheldon belonged. The balloon was constucted of green and light yel- low silk, a mixture which had a poor effect in ascend. ing. The shape was a distorted oval, which in appear- ance, was not near so pleasing as Mr. Lunardi's balloon. We ought to consider, however, that this balloon was constructed before the art of making them had come to any great perfection. The travellers seemed collected and easy, they car- ried with there some pigeons, and a dog, and some provisions, and there is no doubt, that from the un- known abilities of Mr. Blanchard and Mr. Sheldon, the art of aerostation ( if an art it may be called) will receive additional improvements. The Day was fair, but in the direction of South West, the sky was rather obscure. When it arrived at its utmost altitude, the balloon was supposed to be about a mile from the surface of the earth. Both the gentlemen were plainly discernible for a long time in the boat ; the principle employ- ment of one seemed to be waving his flag, while that of the other ( most probably Mr. Blanchard) was using every effort to give a direction to the balloon. But though they could not succeed, as might have been wished or expected, in making themselves matters of the machine, they appeared to be perfectly so of them- selves, having set off with the utmost chearfulness and composure. They passed over Hammersmith and Chiswick, then over Twickenham, where the balloon was discerned very clearly ; after that it began gradu- ally to descend, their joint weight being rather too great for the buoyancy of the inflammable air contained in it. finding it impracticable for them both to proceed any farther, Mr. Sheldon agreed to alight, and leave his . companion to the prosecution of his journey. They accordingly, a little after one o'clock, descended to the earth, at Sanbury, near Hampton Court whither they had been followed by a number of horsemen, among whom we understand was the Prince of Wales. Here Mr. Sheldon alighted in a field belonging to Mr. Boehm, and having assisted Mr. Blanchard in laying in a sufficient quantity of ballast, in order to prevent too sudden and too great an ascention, and taken some refreshment with his fellow traveller, left him to mount once more into the clouds, and to pursue his journey into the unknown regions of the atmosphere. Mr. Blanchard then ascended much higher than before, aud soon rendered all the attempts of the horsemen to follow and keep him in a sight abortive. he passed over the town of Chertsey, took his course toWards the Forest. From the rapidity with which he moved, it was then conjectured the Channel wOuld put a stop to his course, some where on the coast of Dorsetshire. The fact happened not far otherwise ; for he descended, precisely at four o'clock in the afternoon, at Ramsey, in Hampshire, on th: road to Poole, about 7.3 miles from London. This long journey he performed in somewhat less than four hours, and it is said the last hour to have gone at the rate of 99 miles, though we know not how he could ascertain it. Had the wind blown in another direction, it is probable Mr. Blanchard would have made a much longer flight, as he was determined to proceed fo far as the state of the machine and the light of the day would permit him. They had made all necessary preparations for a long expedition, having a good store of wine and provisions. Their ballast consisting of sand- bags ; they had also several pigeons, one of which they liberated on their departure from Mr. Lochee's Academy. A good number of cards had been provided, which being . thrown down to the earth occasionally, were to acquaint their friends and the public with their condition. The pickpockets were particularly busy on this day, and purses, watches, and handkerchiefs, were con- veyed from one pocket to another, with a dexterity that Pinetti himself cannot equal. One pickpocket was laid hold of, and carried to the river near Battersea- bridge, where, for a quarter of an hour, he under- went the most severe discipline of ducking, while upon the least resistance, he was knocked on the head with an oar. After this he was thrown over board, and allowed to scramble on shore, which he effected with great difficulty. The report , was, that he was a shoemaker from Hammersmith, and a reputable work- man. The ducking, however, will probably make him stick to his last Their Majesties, who were in Windsor great Park, when news was brought of the aerial travellers being seen, went up to the observatory, from whence, with the assistance of glasses, they had a tolerable view of Mr. Blanchard ; Mr. Sheldon had then descended from the balloon. POSTSCRIPT. LONDON, Friday, OCTOBER 22. Utrecht, OH. 14. An immediate war with the Emperor seems inevitable ; aud indeed this issue might have been predicted in the earliest stage of his controversy with the Republic respecting the naviga- tion of the Scheldt, since the event that is now on the point of taking place was so plainly indicated by the inflexibility with which the King of the Romans per- sisted in his demands, and the firmness with which they were opposed by the Batavian Senate. Hague, Oct. 15. Governmeit have issued orders for twelve armed brigs and gallots to repair to ap- pointed stations with all possible expedition, for the purpose of defending the ports of Flanders. According to letters from Bergen- op- Zoom. the Austrian troops are in motion in the neighbourhood of Zandvleit, and in the adjacent villages ; quarters are ordered to be provided for two thousand men. Hamburgh, 09. 8 Tlve Hanoverian Brigade, who assisted in the glorious defence of Gibraltar arrived at the mouth of. the Weser 011 The 28th of last month in six English transports, having sailed from the Bay of Gibraltar on the 23d of August. The troops as well as the crews of the. transports are in perfect health, but on account of some ships navigating the Mediter- ranean being suspeCted to have the plague on board, the above vessels are under the necessity of performing 40 days quarantine. Berlin, Oct. 4. The King has assigned the neces- sary sums for erecting, in the course of the year 1785, new batteries in the city of Potsdam, together with a tower, a great number of dwelling- houses, and a water- mill for twisting- silk, after the manner prac- ticed in Italy. His Majesty also extends his paternal cate to the cities and towns of Silesia, and has lately appropriated the sum of an hundred and seventy thou- sand rix thallers to the purpose of embellishing the building, and adding to the public convenience thereof. These works of peace have silenced the ru-' mours of an approaching war. The Dutch Manifesto, which is the proper name to be given to the Resolutions of the States General, with regard t0 stopping of the Austrian brig; indi- cates at once fo great a desire to quarrel, and so great fear of coming to blows, tint they have exposed them- selves at once to the derision of their enemies, and •' the pity and contempt of their friends, if indeed they have any left ; but it is more probable that in this their day of distress they will find no hand to help them. The opening of the navigation of the Scheldt, the States- General say in their resolutions, will be attended with consequences that will inevitably bring on the ruin of the Republic : That is a truth, and all Europe perceives it; their good friends and allies the French in particular ; but these faithful allies, these generous protestors of the distressed, have counselled them in the most friendly manner to , con- fent to this fatal meafure. They have told them that they will do them any favour, except faving them from destruCtion. The behaviour of the Gallic Monarch on this occasion is indeed intuiting to the unfortunate Republic ; but it is far from uncommon with that polite nation to sneer at those whom they have de- voted to destruction. Voltaire, in his Age of Lewis XIV. tells us, that a German officer having begged quarter or a Frenchman, the latter, with a moft pro- found how, requested the suppliant to ask him any other favour but that, and immediately blew out his brains. His Most- Christian Majesty seems in his treat- ment of their High Mightineffes to have a retrofpeG to the behaviour of his countryman. The Dutch cast an imploring eve to the King of Prussia, and report says, that he has encouraged them to persist in their refusal ' of the Emperor's demands. It is probable that he has ; but from the whole tenor of his conduct it is manifest that he will befriend them no longer than to give him an opportunity of coming in for a share of the spoils. He, like the Emperor, has an ambition to beCome a maritime power, and a snip off their coast' Would soon buy him off. Accord- ing to the common proverb, he loves to fish in trou- bled waters ; it is only by involving the nations Europe in quarrels that be has raised himself to the height of power he now enjoys. Havock, and spoil, and ruin are his game. His Majesty is perfeCtly recovered from the fall he received in hunting. Yesterday about three o'clock, Mr. Blanchard and Mr. Sheldon arrived at Chelsea, where they were met by the Gentlemen uf the committee, and conducted to town with great proceSsional pomp. The gondola was placed in the seat of a phaeton, in which the travellers were seated. The Gentlemen of the Com- mittee arranged themselves ia pairs, decorated with white wands and blue ribbons. A number of ladies' ornamented with ribbons, in a chain of carriages, brought up the rear. The procession was accompanied with two excellent- bands of music, and the ensigns were borne before the airy machine. In this state they conducted the balloon, and lodged it in the great room at Spring- gardens, where it is to be exhibited- It is an undoubted fact, that his Grace the Duke of Portland had an audience of his Majesty last week, at Windsor, whither it is said he went in consequence of a message from the King ; but what was the sub- ject of the interview has not yet publicly transpired, though it is strOngly suspected to be upon the subject of Irish affairs. It is confidently asserted that a bill will be brought into Parliament next sessions, for making perjury in certain cases, and the receiving of stolen goods, know- ing them to be stolen, capital offences. To reduce the number of receivers of stolen goods, would be the most effectual method of discouraging robberies of all denominations. According both to the prin- ciples of humanity and found policy, the preventing of crimes is always to be preferred to the punishment of offenders. A letter from Scilly, dated Oct. ti, fays, " Yes- terday a large ship, with her main- mast gone, drove on shore off here ; they hoisted several signals of dis- tress, and fired several minute guns ; but the wind blowing so exceedingly hard, none of oar boats could give them any assistance ; the crew took to their long- boat, and were drove to fea, where it is feared they have perished, as several dead bodies have been drove On shore. The ship is since bulged, and entire- ly lost." A correspondent, who has experienced the beneficial effeCts of the Jesuits Bark in the gout, recommends the use of it to such as may be assisted with that terrible disorder. he is the more encouraged to confide in its efficacy, as several friends to whom he has recom- mended a trial, have found great allievation of their pain, and by continuance the fit lasts but a few days. His method is, as he perceives the leaft symptom of the disorder, tO have recourse to the Bark, which he takes in Red Port, and repeats it till his gouty com- plaints have left him, LINCOLN, 16th of octOBER, 1784.

LINCOLN, Friday, October 22. Several of our friends having intimated a desire that our paper should be printed in FOUR columns instead of FIVE, in order to shew our wish to acquiesce in whatever they or the public shall deem most proper, we have immediately complied. But we must beg leave to acquaint our friends and the public at large, that the price of our advertisements must of course be charged the same as other papers, consisting of four columns, usually insert them at. Therefore, for the future, advertisements, not exceeding twenty lines, will be inserted at four shillings and six- pence each, and three- pence for every four lines exceeding that number. We cannot omit taking this opportunity of return- ' ing our most grateful thanks to a generous public, that has so liberally supported us at the beginning of our undertaking; and it may rest assured that no effort shall be wanting on our part to render the LINCOLN GAZETTEER worthy of its future support. • On Tuesday morning died at his seat at Timber- land- Thorp, in this County, universally lamented, Francis Whichcote, Esq; younger son of Sir Francis Whichcote, 1 te of Aswarby, in this County, Bart, and the only brother of Sir Christopher Whichcote Bart. Married last Tuefday, at Newark, Mr. Gregg of Long Sutton in this county, grocer, to Miss Martha Roebuck, of the former place, a very agreeable young lady. Married, a few days ago, at Louth, Mr. Pinner, cabinet- maker, to Miss Chatterton, both of that place. Married, yesterday morning, at St. Mary's in this city, Mr. Mackenzie of London, to Miss Cooke, sister to Mrs. Edward Mossom of this town. Married, on Monday se'nnight, at Halifax, Mr. Richard Schofield of that place, to Miss Hargh of Huddersfield. Same day was married at Almondbury, Mr. Joseph Firth, of Holmfirth, Yorkshire, to Miss Fielding of Glossop, Derbyshire ; an agreeable young lady'with a fortune of a thousand pounds. A few weeks ago was married, Mr. William Brad- ley of Holmfirth aforesaid, to Miss Crouchley of Long in Staffordshire; an agreeable young lady with a forr tune of fifteen hundred pounds. A short time ago was married, Mr. John Armytage of Honley, Yorkshire, to Miss Shaw of Holmfirth aforesaid, with a fortune of seventeen hundred pounds: Also Mr. Jonathan Shaw of the latter place, to Miss Armytage of the farmer ; an agreeable young lady with a fortune of two thousand pounds. Yesterday se'nnight one John Hunt of Castlethorne in this county, went to Brigg market, and during his absence his house was broke open and twenty guineas stole thereout. The poor man had saved this money in the course of many years spent in careful industry; the loss thereof, it being his ALL, has reduced him to great distress. The same evening, about nine o'clock, a fire broke out at the White Lion in Brigg. A window being _ open, a boy threw a squib into the chamber, which caught the bed curtains. Owing to timely assistance little damage was done. On Saturday the 9th instant, in the night, a gentle- .. man was assaulted in the High- street, Birmingham, nearly opposite to the Hen and Chickens, just as he had quitted . that inn, by two ruffians, who knocked him down, and robbed him of his watch and hand- ( kerehief. The gentleman having seized one of the ruffians, part of the villain's waistcoat was torn off in attempting to get away, and left in the gentleman's hands ; this, it is hoped, will lead to a discovery. On Wednesday morning last, a poor man was very much hurt between two waggons upon Cliff- hill near this city. he had one arm broke, and was otherwise so shockingly bruised that little hope is entertained cf his recovery, A few day; ago died at Newcastle under Line, Mrs, Elizabeth Allcock. At her particular request, in one hand was put a quarter of a pound of good bohea tea, in the other a box filled with superfine snuff; and her coffin painted white, emblematic of her virgin purity. There is now growing in the garden ef George Crowder, at Tryangle near Sowerby, Yorkshire, a cherry- tree, which is in full blossom. On Thursday the 30th ult. a man went into the shop of Mr. Salomon, silversmith and jeweller in King- street, Whitehaven, and offered to sell several articles of plate and jewellery considerably below the value ; his appearance raising a suspicion in Mr. Salo- mon, he declined purchasing any of the goods, but gave notice to the magistrates. Search was made for the man privately, but without effect, till Thursday se'nnight, wlien he again called at Mr. Salomon's, and was apprehended immediately after.— He was taken before Wm. Hicks, Esq; and the Rev. Wilfrid Huddlestone, and underwent a long examination, his box being produced, and a schedule taken of the seve- ral valuables found in his possession. Every thing was ready for his commitment, when the Hue and Cry from the Public- Office in Bow- street, London, was brought in. It was published the 1st inst. and in a long advertisement described a person called Thomas John- son, who had formerly lived with Mr. Whiteaves, silversmith in Fleet- street, having obtained a variety of articles by false pretences, and had absconded along with a washerwoman, who lived on Saffron- hill. The description of Johnson's person corresponded with the appearance of the prisoner, and many of the articles mentioned in the advertisement, were actually found upon him. The property advertised is supposed to be worth about 600I. the articles found in Johnson's possession amounts to about 150I. which are secured for the owner.— A woman who was along with him was also taken up, and they are both committed to Carlisle Jail. The distressed situation of the inhabitants of Shet- land, plead strongly for the interposition of every friend to socicty. Many are the calamities attendant to human nature, yet few may with greater propriety lay claim to the benevolence of the public at large than the affliction with which these unhappy people are visited. A more particular state of their Situation may, at this period, be in some degree needless, as the ear of humanity has been long wounded by the melancholy detail. Too much praise, however, can- not be bestowed on those whom true philanthropy urged to step forward as petitioners for so distressed a People.

The following address was written by Mr. Cawdell, Comedian, and intended to be spoke by Miss Younge, on the night ot the unfortunate Mrs. Lin- ton's benefit, but came too late. Speaks without) Where are her friends? Oh let me feast my eyes ( Enters, looks round, and curtsies) Ay, here's bene- volence, without disguise ! A scene like this, how beauteous to behold • Now who shall say that Charity's grown cold ? None dare I Tho' other climes no genial warmth impart, She'll never freeze within a British heart! My widow'd friend, the object of your zeal, ) Whose deep distress, none here I hope will feel, > Unless by Sympathy — Oh ! not by steel! ) Has chosen me her heart- felt praise to own, To you her patrons, for your kindness shown. Then let me hope that you'll the same receive — And take her thanks— they're all she has to give ! — Your friendly aid has soften'd all her woes, And sooth'd her troubled mind with soft repose. ' Tis thus the Fates assist, and thus they cheer, One friend she lost— to find a thousand here! ( curtsy- ing all around) Example sways us, when afflictions plead— Our gracious Sovereign takes the willing lead! Let merit ask, or let distress complain— The Royal Bounty ne'er is urg'd in vain. Our gen'rous master yields his friendly mite, And gives, unask'd the profits of this night. Oh happy England ! hail propitious isle !— Where kindness springs spontaneous from thy soil — For let but Charity her standard rear, And every Briton proves a Volunteer.

I've swallow'd hogsheads, burs, gallons and quarts, Over the bush and under the briar, So light my heart, mischance it ne'er thwarts For I am a jolly old friar, O I am a merry old friar. If on my way I meet a bonny lass, Over the bush and under the briar, Then I a blessing give— snug on the grass, For I am a jolly old friar, O I am a merry old friar. STELLA. The laughing pow'rs That led the wanton hours, When May was in her prime, Open'd the cells of flow'rs, To airy paramours, And bid the love- sick poet sigh in rhime. Oh summer all so fair! Oh blisses all too high ! Oh might she not have known. That sweetest flow'r the soonest blows, Is soonest gone That dearest stream beneath a summer sky Is foonest dry.— She never said Can my dear love fly, Till he was fled. DUET. ALLEN and STELLA. ALLEN. The violet nurs'd in woodland wild, Young Zephyr's bride, spring's first- born child, Whose vest in heav'ns tint is dy'd ; How fades its beauties on the sight! No more its perfume yields delight, When the rich ros unfolds its pride. STELLA. The feather'd tribes who in their groves. With thrills melifluous woo their loves. As nature's self inspires the strain ; Their melting music fails to please, Harsh and untuneful are their lays, When Philomel awakes the plain. B O T H. The maid endow'd with virtue's grace. Appears with soul- subduing face: And shines in beauty's sphere supreme; Each nymph that won the heart before, By her eclips'd, can charm no more, But all her sov'reign pow'r proclaim. ANGELINA. Oh Love ! the parent of gay smiling hours, All nature owns with joy thy genial reign ; Thou can'st resume the little lives of flow'rs, And bring their aromatic souls again. Why am I banish'd from thy sportive plain ? Why am I only doom'd to suffer pam P I little thought when I was of thy train, Where bonny belles sport with their paramours, How friendship smil'd too sweetly to remain,— How on the brightest day sad ev'ning lours— Why am I banish'd from thy sportive pliain ? Why am i only doom'd to suffer pain ? AIR and CHORUS ROBIN and ARCHERS. Drain the jug, my hearts, while you have breath, When grim Death comes, we'll drink to Death; Push the pitcher round my boys of spunk, We'll drink to Death till Death's dead drunk — Then, my lads, in flowing bumpers strive, To drink to Death, till Death's alive.— Drain the jug, my hearts while you have breath, When grim Death comes, we'll drink to Death. The LUNARDIAD; or, the Folly and Madness of the Age. VAIN, idle folks, but born to gape and stare, To view a monkey— mounting into air. And when the thing descends to earth again, You meet the creature— with the hero's strain ; Men give him cheers, belles dress for him their charms, And in a furor snatch him to their arms. England, alas 1 thou'rt Folly's foremost heir, . To waste thy time on fiddlers, fools, and air. Coxcombs and conjurors, every act of shame, Leads thee from honour, honesty, and fame. We've got for virtues, senses, glories, graces,__ Men with false hearts, and women with false faces. The following epitaph was found written in chalk upon a tomb- stone tn the close of Salisbury, when Dr. Burnett filled the see.— It was suspected and reported that Dean Swift was the author, and that he had taken great pains to publish his satire, and conceal the author. I am, Sarum, Oct. 9, 1784. A. B. Here Sarum lies, who was as wise And learn'd as Tom Aquinas ; Lawn sleeves he wore, yet was n0 more A christian than Socinus. Oaths pro and con he swallow'd down; Lov'd gold like any layman ; He preach'd and pray'd and yet betray'd God's holy church for mammon. If such a foul to heaven stole, And pass'd the Devil's clutches I do persume there may be room For Marlbro' and his dutchess. An ACCOUNT of the LIFE of the GEORGE- ALEXANDER STEVENS. OF this person, an extraordinary one in his way, some account seems to be necessary ; as, for thr singularity if not extent of his genius, he has perhaps left no one pcrfon with whom he may be compared. his origin is not accuratcly known ; but we have been informed that he was born in London, about Holborn. He was the son of a tradesman, and brought up with a view to some machanical employment. The obscurity of his birth has cast a veil over the early part of his life. Whether dissipation, prodigality, want, idleness, profligacy, or inclination, led him to employ his talents in public, we are unable to determine ; but the first notice we meet with concerning aim, is as a strolling player in one of the provincial companies, whose chief head- quarter- were at Lincoln, where he performed some time *. His own account of himself, extracted from a poem, called, " Religion, or the Li- bertine Repentant," 8vo. 1751, affords us every reason to suppose that the tenor of his life had not been much influenced by the rules of piety or virtue. Thus he describes himself. " BY chance condemn'd to wander from my birth, An erring exile o'er the face of earth; Wild through the world of vice,— licentious race ! I've started folly, and enjoy'd the chace : Pleas'd with each passion, I pursu'd their aim, Cheer'd the gay pack, and grasp'd the guilty game. ; Revel'd regardless, leap'd reflection o'er, Till youth, till health, fame, fortune, are no more. Too late I feel the thought corroding pain Of sharp remembrance and severe disdain : Each painted pleasure its avenger breeds, Sorrow's sad train to Riot's troop succeeds ; Slow wasting sickness steals on swift debauch; Contempt on pride, pale wanton waste approach." This poem was written during a fit of illness, and probably made no longer impression than until health returned. The next year, 1752, he was performing at Dublin ; and while there, published a burlesque tragedy, called " Distress upon Distress" which does not appear to have been acted. The year following he came to London, and obtained an engagement at Covent- Garden Theatre ; where he performed without any applause, which indeed his performances on the stage were in no respect intitled to. In 1754, he published a poem, called " The Birth Day of Folly," in imitation of The Dunciad ; but proceeded in the design no further than the first book. In January, 1755, the Theatre in the Haymarket was opened with an entertainment ridicu- ling Macklin's British Inquisition, and called " The Female Inquisition. By a Lady." It was supposed to be written by our author, who delivered a Proemium and Peroration ; but though aided by the assistance of Mifs Isabella Wilkinson's performances on the wire, it ended without any advantage to the adventurers, after being four times repeated. At this period Mr. Stevens was celebrated at the several convivial societies then in being, of which * Biographia Dramatica, Vol. I. there was a great number, as, the Choice Spirits, High Borlace, Comus's Court, & c. and wrote many of the songs he has since been applauded for. His finances were generally at a low ebb, and his person in durance. He experienced the extremes of mirth and jollity, as well as want and dependence ; aud led a life, if unstained by crimes, yet despicable for its meanness' and irregularity. He usually wrote pieces of humour for Shuter, to deliver at his benefit ; and we believe was the author of a Droll, acted at Bartho- lomew Fair by that Comedian in the year 1759 called, The French flogged, or, The British Sailors in Ame- rica. In 1760, he published a Novel, in 2 vols. Called, The History of Tom Fool; and in 1761 began a periodical publication, entitled, The Beauties of the Magazines. In 1763 he gave the public some enter- tainment at the expence of his friend Shuter and Nancy Dawson, in '• The Dramatic History of Master Edward, Mrs. Ann, Mrs. Llwnddwhydd, and others, the Extraordinaries of these times, lamo. t— For Shuter he composed the first sketch of his Lecture on Heads, which he said owed its origin to his meeting, in one of his strolling excursions, with a country machanics who described the members of the Corpora- tion with great force of humour. Whether the hu- mour of the piece was not congenial with that of Shuter, or whether he was inadequate to the task, it is certain it was at first scarcely noticed. Luckily for the author, he was prompted to enlarge his plan, and having fur- nished himself with a complete apparatus, he went into the country, and repeated his Lecture with so much success at various places, that he was soon enabled to amass and remit home several large sums of money ; by which he secured himself in affluence during the rest of his life. In April 1764 he commenced his Lecture at the Haymarket, greatly to the advantage of his fortune and reputation. He afterwards travelled over every part of England, Scotland, and Ireland ; and even made a trip to North America, and at every place met with the most flattering and generous reception. After the Lecture on Heads had apparently been repeated often enough to lose some of us effect, he composed another en ertainment of the like kind, called, The Supplement, being a new Lecture upon Heads, Portraits, and Whole Lengths. It began in 1765 ; but notwithstanding the Lecturer's acknow- ledged reputation, it was coldly received, and ended with six nights performance. It was tryed again the | next year, but with little more success, being repeated only seven nights. The money he had acquired by means of his Lecture having made the drudgery of literature unnecessary to him, we do not find that he produced any perform- ance until January 1770, when The Court of Alex- ander, a burletta, let by Dr. Fishar, was acted at Covent- Garden with, at least, as much applause as either the author or composer deserved. In 1772, owing to a pirated edition of his Songs being published at Whitehaven, he printed a genuine collection of them at Oxford, in octavo. In 1773 appeared the Trip to Portsmouth, a comic sketch, acted at the Hay- market, consisting of a saw detached scenes, begun and finished in five days. It Was his misfortune that his mind and body did not keep pace with each other in their decay. He sunk by degrees into a state of all others the most distressing to those who have any connections, either of friendship or consanguinity, with a person so un- happily circumstanced. He retained his bodily facul- ties after his mind had lost its powers, and exhibited a miserable spectacle of idiotism and fatuity. At length, after several years remaining in th s condition, he died at Baldock, in Hertfordshire, September 6th, 1784. . [ EurOP. MAC. for Sept. + He appears at this time to have been at variance with Shuter. In page 145 of the above work, Miss Ann speaks of them both in these terms : " I will say that for you, Ned, that your gratitude and my virtue are two very fine things, if any body could but tell where to fine them. There was what's his name, who wrote the Droll for you, and made you your Dish of all Sorts, and the Day of Taste, and several comic songs, which have been of such Service to you in your benefits, both in town and in the country, how did vou serve him ? Didn't you expose him falsely and scanda- lously ; and strove, by what you said of him publicly, in some of the most infamous baudy- houses that you frequent, to render him contemptible ? and he had never done any thing, to my knowledge, to merit such treatment.— I wish he would write something about you; I wish he would ; nothing he could print against you could be half so bad as the abuse you have loaded him with, Noddy ; but he don't value you nor I neither."
