PRICE THREE- PENCE.) From THURSDAY, December 2, to SATURDAY, December 4, 1784. FRIDAY, Dec. 3. IRELAND. Dublin, Nov. 22. . YESTERDAY came on, in the Court of King's Bench, the pleadings to shew cause why an in- formation should not be granted against Coun- sellor Lyster, and the other gentlemen who held the meeting in the town of Roscommon. Mr. Currun, in a speech of three hours, pointed but such defects in the affidavit, that the Court refused to make the rule for an information absolute against the gentlemen concerned. LONDON. It is to be hoped, that in the course of the ensuing session of Parliament effectual mea- sures will be pursued for preventing evasions of the law with respect to insurances in future lot- teries. This species of gambling is the more pregnant with ill consequences, as operating chiefly upon people in dependent stations of life; and every street in the metropolis rings with instances of workmen selling their apparel and tools, to the ruin of their families ; and of servants embezzling the property of their em- ployers, for the sake of insuring for guineas. Extract of Letter from Edinburgh, Nov. 17. " Last week the officers of Excise, assisted by a military party, by an order from the Board of excise, detected at Paisley ten illegal distillers, with stills from 50 to 100 gallons, which were seized and lodged in the Excise- office at Glas- gow ; and on Friday last they went down to a coal- pit at Shettleston, where they found three stills at work, which they seized, with a quan- tity of malt, and lodged in the excise- office. " Last Friday night, Robert Colston, ser- vant no Mr. William Penman, at Easter Muir- dean, about three miles from Kelso, in a fit of frenzy committed a most barbarous murder on the body of Mary Penman, his master's daugh- ter, aged about six months, and at the same time he beat and abused the mother and another child, about two years old, in a most cruel manner. Mrs Penman received several severe blow s on her back and other parts of her body, and the surviving child was very much bruised, but they are both in a fair way of recovery. Colston was next day committed to Jedburgh tolbooth by warrant of the Justices of the Peace, and on Monday a precognition of the facts was taken by the Sheriff, in order to be laid before the crown lawyers. It would seem his frenzy- had been coming on for some days, for he went off on the Tuesday morning without asking leave of his master, and did not return till Thursday: During that time, he said, he had twice at tempted to drown himself, but that a black dog prevented him. He was formerly a well be- At a capital and old established lottery- office, near the Royal Exchange, upwards of an hun- dred counterfeit guineas were taken on the Sa- turday preceding the Monday on which the lot- tery began drawing. Most of the above coun- terfeits are of very small intrinsic value. ROBBERIES AND COMMITMENTS. 5 A few days ago a female servant belonging to the British Museum offered a ring for sale to a neighbouring goldsmith ; who perceiving it to be a valuable antique, questioned her from whom she had it ; and she not giving a satisfactory _ answer, he applied to the Museum, from whence it appeared to have been stolen ; and the servant was committed to Clerkenwell Bridewell. Last Saturday, early in the evening, the house of Mr. Powell, in Buckingham- street, York- buildings, was robbed. The villains had packed up plate and other articles to a great amount, but being alarmed, carried off few ' things of any considerable value.— The circum- stances attending this robbery are somewhat t singular, and ought to put servants on their guard to be watchful of the property entrusted to their care. Mr. Powell and his family at 1 present reside in the country, leaving only a ' girl to take care of the town house; in their ab- sence she introduced her sweet- heart, who occa- sionally slept there, in order to protect the house from thieves; unfortunately for her, he was connected with a gang of notorious , house- breakers, and laid a plan for robbing the house. The plot being properly set- tled, last Saturday was the time fixed on for c putting the scheme in execution. The lover, 1 whole name is Anderson, his associates, Flint, t an old offender, another, name unknown, and , one Simmons whom they had inveigled into the a party, came at the agreed time, when Sim mons knocked at the door, with a letter di- rected to Mr. Powell, while Flint and the other - rushed in, threw the girl down, and secured < the door. But the deceitful Anderson remain- ed in the street ready to receive the booty. ' They threatened the servant with instant death if she did not tell where the plate lay. Simmons watched the girl whilst the other two ransacked the house. of the maid calling, ' but finding no admission, suspected something amiss, ard getting over the railing perceived, through the window, Simmons guarding the un- happy woman with loaded pistols, and blindfolded with her apron, The alarm being given, the ransackers, in the bustle, made their escape ; but the guard finding a retreat impracticable, with horrid imprecations swore he would blow her brains out if she did not conceal him till three o'clock in the morning. She placed him under a bed ; but the street- door being burst open, she was rid from her dreadful situation, and he was easily secured. Simmons immediately gave in- formation of the others, and the following morn- ing, Anderson, Flint, and Sarah Holmes, alias Brockley, were taken into custody. Anderson haved sober man, and much respected by his master." Extract of a letter from Deal, Dec. 2. u Wind N. W.

" This day, it blowing hard, the Hannah, Harding, from Topsham to Cadiz, with bale goods, in this Bay, parted from her anchors, and ran for the Pier, and in coming in struck off her rudder and received some other damage ; it is imagined the cargo is not damaged." The Christopher, Aire, from Petersburgh to Gatcomb, having received considerable damage at sea, is put into North Shields, and must un- load to repair.

A letter from the Isle of Mann, dated the 15th inst, says, Notwithstanding the general good disposition of the people of this island, some few nights ago a house in the parish of Kirk- bride, near the North end of the island, was robbed of 98I, but th inhabitants in the neigh- bourhood being summoned to appear on a cer- tain day, before a jury of enquiry, where ( ac- cording to the custom of the country) every in- dividual would have been obliged to clear him- self of the robbery, upon oath, or be deemed guilty of it, by the jury,— the thief or thieves, not being entirely destitute of grace, but dread- ing to lay perjury to the soul, took an opportuni- ty of returning the money- before the day of en- quiry."

They were on Wednefday fully committed from the Public Office in Bow- street to Newgate, to take their trial for the said offence. Wednesday afternoon, just as Mr. Hennell, bleacher at Bow, had dismounted from his phae- ton upou Stratford Green, the horses took fright at a waggoner's smacking his whip, and set off at full speed with Mr. Hennell's daugh- ter in the carriage, from which the young lady leaped, and luckily received little or no hurt. The phaeton was overset, and nearly broke to pieces before the horses could be stopped. Yesterday evening as Mr. Gerald, of Hadley, neat Barnet, was riding to town, he was stopped about the middle of Finchley Common by two fellows, one of whom held his horse by ihe bridle, while the other, who was armed with a pistol, robbed him of two guineas and some silver. Last night some villains attempted to break into the house of Mr. Dring, hair merchant, in Drury- lane ; but being over heard by the ap- prentice, who lay in a little room adjoining to the shop, the robbers made off.

Mr. KLINGENDER, at Hesse- Cassell, in Germany, respectfully informs the British Nobility and Gentry, that be wishes again to renew his late favou- rite employment, the Education of Youth. He has for that purpose provided some very genteel apartments at his own house, in one of the healthiest parts of the city, which are now ready for the reception of foreign young gentlemen, to whom he propofes to give boarding, lodg- ing, and other conveniencies, and to instruCt them in the German, French, and Latin languages, principles of re- ligion, history, geography, and other branches of polite literature; all at the moderate price of one guinea per week.. The strictest attention to rhe morals and health of his pupils he will make a principal object, and he requests of those parents who may wish te honour him with their confidence, to apply to their friends at Cassell for a testi- mony of his charaCter and abilities. He underslands the English language, aud has had the honour to number three young Englishmen among his pupils during the course of six years, in Switzerland and Holland. He thinks it hardly necessary to add, that Cassel is a place in every re- speCt eligible for the education of a gentleman, at the best Masters in ever, art and science beyond his capacity, may be had there at very moderate rates. He is willing to meet such gentlemen as may be instructed to his care at any place in Holland, in order to conduCt them to Cassel, if required, and immediate attention will be given to letters ( post paid) directed to him at that place.

How painful must it be to the Author of these not find himself ( after the researches of forty- five Years strained from publishing them in those Countries Superstition still lingers, and where the Zeal naticism has not as yet cooled He has often lamented to his Friends, yet under the pious Hope a future would do him more Justice.

FRIDAY, Dec. 3. LONDON. The Lords Commissioners present yesterday at the further Prorogation of the Parliament to the 25th of January next, were the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord Chancellor, and Earl Gower. Yesterday there was a great Court and Draw- ing Room at St. James's, at. which their Ma- iesties, the Prince of Wales, several of the Nobility, and most of the Foreign Ministers were present, which broke up a little before five o'clock, when their Majesties returned to the Queen's palace. The same day Lord Camden, on being ap- pointed President of the Council, also the Mar- quis of Buckingham, aud tbe Marquis of Lans- down, 011 their late promotions to their respec- tive titles, were preferred to her Majesty. Yesterday Col. Maule was at Court at St. James's for the first time since his return from the East Indies. Yesterday as soon as the drawing- room was over at St. James's, Lords Gower, Sydney, Car marthen, and Mr. Pitt, went to the London Ta- vern, to dine with the East- India Directors. Wednesday Colonel Cathcart, brother to Lord Cathcart, took leave of his Majesty at St. James's previous to his going to India, as Quarter Master General. Yesterday the Court of Directors of the India Company gave an entertainment, at the London Tavern, to General Sloper and a number of officers going out in their service to the East Indies. General Dalling is now confidently spoken of for India, as second in command. Extract of a letter from Brussels, Nov. 23. " Notwithstanding all the warlike prepara- tions here, it is thought there will be no war between the Dutch and the Austrians." A letter from a gentleman at Philadelphia, to his father in London, has the following article: " I was the other day witness to one of the most shocking scenes my eyes ever beheld ; fifty stout young fellows, who came from the north of Scotland, drove like beasts into the market place and sold, some for three, and some for five years. These poor deluded people were drawn away by the . tain, who made thern believe they would s00n make their fortunes, and that their passage would be paid by the Americans; but little did they think of being sold. The Ame- ricans declare against the slave trade, yet they give encouragement to these captains to decoy young men from their native country, that they may make slaves of them. But I hope to see no more of my countrymen here in so unhappy a situation." Extract of a Letter from tbe Hague. " The Greek merchants who, according to annual custom, have attended the different fairs in Austria, are unanimous in asserting, that the Porte is making veiy formidable preparations for an irruption into the Emperor's dominions, whilst his power of defence shall be weakened by a part of his armies being employed in the Netherlands." Extract of a Letter from Paris, Nov. 19. *' Letters received here of the 4 h instant from Vienna, announce, that the orders for the de- parture of the troops quartered in that City and in other places of Austria were not then issued from the Chancery, although divers advices from Germany had already related that those regiments were in march for the Low Countries. We are not here surprized at the delay. The march of an army at this season, and through the bad roads of Germany, must at least appear very rash and hazardous. Therefore at present only the troops of Flanders and the Low Coun- tries can this winter be stationed on the Dutch frontiers. Those are to be replaced in the gar- risons which they have quitted, by the trOops from Brisgau, the only ones that are to march out this year. The latter having but 60 leagues to pass to their place of destination, do not run any great risk." Extract of a Letter from Vienna, Nov. it. " Notwithstanding all the reports, and even appearance of a war between us and the Dutch, we have very great and well- founded hopes that this calamity will not be inflicted upon us, at least the prospect grows less alarming, by ap- pearing at a considerable distance. Our reasons for viewing it with less apprehension than we did at first, are, that the Dutch Ambassador at our Court, notwithstanding the newspaper reports so the contrary, remains here, and appears in public as usual; And., in the next place, our warlike preparations are not carried on with that spirit and dispatch which announces a serious and approaching rupture ; several of the troops intended for the Netherlands having received orders to suspend their march. " Although we have had occasion to praise, in several instances, the mildness of our Sove- reign in the execution of the Penal Laws, we have reason to suppose that the following fact Will not give the world any great opinion of his Unity in that respect:— Some soldiers quartered at Fort Pless had laid a plot to murder their commanding officer, a Lieutenant, and thus effect their escape; but they were. prevented, yet the Court Martial's sentence condemned them to be broke upon the wheel. The Empe- ror commuted the pain, in my opinion, to some- thing worse than death by ordering that each of them, tied flat on his face to a bench, should receive 20 strokes with the flat part of a broad sword from every man, of a body of 300 sol- diers assembled for that purpose, in all 6,000 strokes; then, for the two following days they are to run the gauntlet; and if any of them survive so severe a punishment, to be fortification for the space of twenty five years. This may be called lenity with a vengeance. " As the hair powder is equally useless as it is dear in the capital, all military men, except commissioned officers, are striCtly forbidden the use of it. " All civil officers are, in future, to be uni- formly habited, according to their various de- partment, some in white, with red cuffs and collars ; others, such as officers belonging to the Mint, Bank, & c. to wear suits of red, with black cuffs. The Police officers deep grey coats, with black cuffs. The counsellors in ail the above departments are to be distinguished with broad gold lace on the waistcoat and cuffs; secretaries to wear it only on the waistcoat; clerks and under secretaries to have their uni- form quite plain, Physicians and advocates to wear black." Letters from Amsterdam, dated Nov. 17, say, that a Subaltern Officer belonging to the Wal- loon brigade, and a corporal, had been taken into custody at Bergen- op- Zoom, for carrying 011 a traiterous correspondence with an Agent in the Imperial service, ancl endeavouring to corrupt the soldiers in that garrison.. ' By letters from Bourdeaux ( per ship), dated Nov. 16, we learn, that his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland and his consort are ex- pected there shortly to spend part of the winter and the Carnival, in that emporium of elegance, trade, and dissipation. The letters add, that Lord Rodney with his family have fixed their refidence at Thoulouse, the capital of Langue- doc ; where between thirty and forty British and Irish families are now settled. A letter from Bourdeaux brings an account, that the Count de Vergennes sloop of war, with dispatches from America, in coming into that harbour, the wind blowing hard at North- West, was drove upon the point of a rock, and received fo much damage that she sunk before she could be got into harbour: Several passengers were on board, two of whom were drowned, the rest were with difficulty saved. One of thc crew was drowned in endeavouring to save the passengers. A letter from Leghorn fays, that a Spanish ship, bound to the Levant, was taken off there by the Moors; but the Captain and his mate escaped on shore, and acquainted an officer of a Tuscan armed vessel, who slipped his cable, pur- sued the corsair with his prize, re- took the Spa- nish vessel, and brought her into port, with all the crcw, which happily they found on board. According to the letters from Elsineur of the 12th ult. the Admiral Firebourlge was returned with his squadron from a cruize in the North Seas, the time of his cruize being expired. The large ships are ordered to Copenhagen to win- ter ; the small ones will be laid up at Elsineur. The Danish navy, say these accounts, is now in such an excellent condition, that 27 ships of the line are ready for service, and five more are building. A new ship, the Icelandia, is to be launched at Elsineur in April next, which is to mount 58 guns. The example of the Emperor of Germany has a most happy influence, if it be true that the King of the Two Sicilies is suppressing convents, and that the Grand seignior suffers all christians in his dominions, whether Catholics, Protestants, or Greeks, the free exercise of their religion. Pacification seems to be the aim of the French Court. They are at present neither able nor willing to assist the Dutch ; and yet without that assistance they know the Dutch must fall, which would be a great mortification to the asserter ef universal liberty, and the candidate for universal dominion. The finances of Opposition are given over as irretrievable 1— Not a guinea sterling, either in possession, or even in reversion — in consequence of which, the few who happen to have houses have taken their names from their street- doors. His Majesty's Proclamation has given un- speakable relief to the inhabitants of Welbeck- street. The ragged recruits from the rendez- vous at the Kettle- Drum n0 longer affright thc vicinity of a certain house in that quarter. Before that salutary expedient for preserving good order and quiet, nothing could be thought of but the disorders of 1780; but ever since that blessed moment, every man is secure by day, and sleeps by night " under his own vine and fig- tree," without dreaming of robberies, bloodshed, and conflagrations. By the prorogation of Parliament till January next, the country gentlemen will have an op- portunity of spending a little of their time and cash among their neighbours and tenants ; the Public will be delivered from empty senatorical speeches, as destitute of meaning as of patrio- tism; and a temporary check will be given to- that greatest of all growing evils, gaming, as appears by a card stuck up at the Pharaoh Bank in St. James's- street :—" Notice is hereby given, that no business will be transacted here till after the meeting of Parliament.'* There are more reasons than good paragraph- writers are aware of, when they mention the returning state of health of a R— l Duke, as a reason for his staying another year on the Con- tinent. The fact is his R— 1 H fs had the misfortune of losing above a year's revenue in one night to the Margrave of Anspach : the liquidation of which will require some further abstinence from the expensive pleasures of this capital. Extract of a letter from Ramsgate, Nov. 30. " Run on the Goodwin Sands last night the Woolton, John Turner, master, of Liverpool, from London, bound to Liverpool, loaded with sundry sorts of merchandize. She drove off the Sands, and was discovered on shore by two lights in her main shrouds; a boat went off from Ramsgate, and brought her in within the pier- head about three o'clock this morning in distress, with six or seven feet water in the hold. • The Zebra sloop of war arrived at Portsmouth on Tuesday last from the West- Indies.

A beautiful monument to the memory of the late Major Pierson has been erected in the church of St. Hillier, in the island of Jersey. On a marble tablet is the following inscription: " To " the memory of Major Francis Pierson, who, " when this island was invaded by the French, " fell bravely fighting at the head of the British " and Island troops. He died in the flower of " youth, and in the moment of victory, on the " 6th day of January, 1781, aged 24. The " State of the Island, in grateful testimony of " their deliverance, caused this monument to " be erected at the public expence." The gentleman who accompanied Mr. Blan- chard in his flying vessel, we hear, was Dr. Jefferies, from America. Extract of a Letter from Dr. Jefferies, at Dart- ford. " I wrote yon far, very far above the clouds. We have had a short, but most noble and en- chanting voyage of 21 miles, over Shooters- hill, kc. and landed on the Banks of the Thames, in the Parish of Stone, in Kent, within half a mile of Essex. Our motion was very rapid, and all our ballast expended. ' Wednesday, three o'clock, A. M." The balloon landed near Ingress, the seat of the late Mr. Calcraft, a few miles from Dart- ford, in Kent. And on Wednesday Mr. Blan- chard, with his balloon, came to his late room, in King- street, St. James's, from Stoney Marsh, three miles beyond Dartford, where he alight- ed, drank tea at Little- Brook, and supped at Dartford, before his return to town, as men- tioned yesterday. The aerial excursion of Mr. Blanchard last Tuesday makes the 26th journey which has been taken in the air by different persons since the first expedition on the 21st of November, 1783, by M. Pilatre de Rozier, from La Muette. The first female who adventured into the atmosphere was Madame Tible, at Lyons; and the per- sons who travelled farthest, and continued longest on their voyage, were Mess. Roberts and Hulin, who were six hours and 40 minutes going from the Thuilleries to Bethune. in Artois, distant from Paris about 160 miles.

When Selden was asked by what law the peo- ple of England carried arms; he answered, The common law of England depends upon custom ; and as the people of England have always had a custom of carrying arms— ergo, they carry arms according to the common law. ANECDOTE. IN June 1711, thc Bishop of St. Asaph tak- ing upon him, in a preface to some of his ser- mons, to reflect upon her Majesty's change of Ministry, and the advances that had been made towards a peace— The Commons taking the same into consideration, " Resolved, That the said preface is malicious and factious, highly reflecting upon the present administration of public affairs under her Ma jesty, and tending to create discord and sedition amongst her subjects. " Resolved, That the said preface be burnt by the hands of the common hangman in the Palace- yard, Westminster, and that the Sheriffs of London and Westminster do assist the Ser- jeant at Arms in the execution thereof." The same was performed accordingly. Preamble of an ACT passed by the Representation of Pennsylvania., for the Abolition of Slavery. " WHEN we contemplate our abhorrence of that condition to which the arms and tyranny of Great Britain were exerted to reduce us ; when we look back on the variety of dangers to which we have been exposed, and how miracu. lously our wants, in many instances, have been supplied, and our deliverances wrought, when even hope and human fortitude have become unequal to the conflict : we are unavoidably led to a serious and grateful sense of the manifold blessings which we have undeservedly received from the hand of that Being from whence every good and perfect gift cometh. Impressed with these ideas, we conceive that it is our duty, and we rejoice that it is in our power, to extend a portion of that freedom to others, which hath been extended to us; and a release from that state of thraldom to which ourselves were tyrannically doomed, and from which we have now every prospect of being delivered. It is not for us to enquire why, in the creation of mankind, the inhabitants of the several parts of the earth were distinguished by a difference in feature or complexion : it is sufficient to know, that all are the work of an Almighty hand. We find, in the distribution of the human spe- cies, that thc most fertile, as well as the most barren parts of the earth are inhabited by men of complexions different from ours, and from each other : from whence we may reasonably, as well as religiously infer, that He who placed them in their various situations, hath extended equally his care and protection to all; and that it becomcth not us to counteract his mercies. We esteem it a peculiar blessing granted to us that we are enabled this day to add one more step towards civilization, by removing, as much as possible, the sorrows of those who have lived in undeserved bondage, and from which, by the assumed authority of the Kings of Great Bri- tain, no effectual legal relief could be obtained. Weaned, by a long course of experience, from those narrow prejudices and partialities we had imbibed,, we find our hearts enlarged with kind- ness and benevolence towards all men, of all conditions and nations. And we conceive our- selves, at this particular period, extraordinarily called upon by the blessings which we have re- ceived, to manifest the sincerity of our profes- sions, and to give a substantial proof of our gra- titude. " And, whereas the condition of those per- sons who have heretofore been denominated ne- gro and mulatto slaves, has been attended with circumstances which not only deprived them of the common blessings that they were by nature entitled to, but has cast them into the deepest afflictions, by an unnatural sale and separation of husband and wife from each other, and from their children ; an injury, the greatness of which can only be conceived, by supposing that we were in the same unhappy case : In justice therefore to persons so unhappily circumstanced, and who having no prospect before them where- in they may rest their sorrows and their hopes, have no reasonable inducement . to render their service to society, which they otherwise might t and also in grateful commemoration of our own happy deliverance from that estate of- uncon- ditional submission, to which we were doomed by the tyranny of Britain : « Be it enacted, and it is hereby enacted by thc Representatives ot the Freemen of the Com- monwealth of Pennsylvania, in General Assem- bly met, and by thc authority of the same, that all persons, as well negroes and mulattoes, as others, who shall be born within this State from and after the passing of this Act, shall not be deemed and considered as servants for life, or slaves and that all servitude for life, or slavery of children, in consequence of the slavery of their mothers, in thc case of all children born within this State, from and after the passing of this Act, as aforesaid, shall be, and hereby is utterly taken away, extinguished, and for ever abolished." The OriGiN and PROPRIETY of the CAP of LIBERTY. A FRAGMENT. The ancient Romans generally went with their head bare, or in rain or cold weather covered them with the corners of their toga or robe. Caesar, their first emperor, having a bald head, covered it with laurels, as did the late Marquis of Granby from the same cause. Indeed the ancients, when either old or infirm, indulged themselves with wearing a cap- As age was then honourable, so caps became marks of honour; as none could be then deemed honour- able who were not free, the cap by degrees became the badge of freedom ; and when a slave was made a free man, he had a cap given to him, which he was permitted to wear in public. The Pileus, or Cap of Liberty, is quite simple in its form, common in its texture, and of a whitish colour. It is in the form of a sugar- loaf, broad at the bottom, ending like a cone. This prefigures that freedom stands on the broad basis of humani- ty ; and it runs up to a pyramid, the emblem of eternity, to shew it ought to last for ever. It is simple, for liberty is in itself the most shining or- nament of man. It hath no gilded trappings, which too often mark the livery of despotism. It is made of wool, to signify that liberty is the birthright of the shepherd, as well as of the senator; and that, although shepherds may lawfully shear the sheep they protect, they ought not to skin them, that be- ing the employment of the butcher. Lastly, the cap of liberty is whitish, the native colour of the wool undyed. Thjs demonstrates that it' should be natural without deceiving gloss, unspotted by faCtion, and unstained by tyranny. O ! may every Englishman thus wear this sacred cap ! let them preserve it by them undefiled ; and though they may not difplay it every day, yet, whenever necessity shall call for it, let them not sell it even for coronets, pledge it for gold, or barter it for titles, but wear it nobly in the face of the world, with its top erect, that, like a portentous meteor, it may overshadow the heads of its revilers, and terrify the slaves of despotsfm. Then lay it by, bound round with loyalty, and leave it as a most precious legacy to their children. The cap of liberty long maintained its primitive form, till at length the hand of absolute power laid heavy upon it; and where it could not entirely tear it off, depressed its top, spoiled its pyramid, and crushed it to a Scots bonnet, or a battle- axe's flat cap, introduced by Henry the Seventh. The cap, ' tis true, remained, but had lost much of its pristine beauty. In Scotland indeed it was not so much sunk by royal power, as by an aristocracy, the peers becoming despotic in their several districts. But, in England and Ireland, it was the regal touch that changed the form and colour of the cap, and when it had deprived it of its pristine odour, endeavoured to compensate that loss by enriching it with artifi- cial roses. However, at the glorious Revolution, the Bill of Rights restored it to every man's house; and none now wear that bonnet or flat cap, but from choice or convenient, having power to ele- vate its crown whenever they please. SATURDAY, Dec. 4. IRELAND. Dublin, Nov. 26. Yesterday the Court of King's Bench proceeded to give judgment in the case of the King against Reilly, High Sheriff of the county of Dublin ; when the Judges were unanimously of opinion, that the rule should be made absolute. Sir Samuel Bradstreet, was induced to join in this opinion from the fol- lowing case, which he mentioned. As Sheriff Hall Was walking through one of the streets ot Dublin, a man from a ladder let fall some mortar, which happening to light on thc Sheriff, he immediately caused the poor fellow to be tied to the first cart that passed by, and severely flogged, for which this Magistrate was attached in the Court of King's Bench. This, Sir Samuel said, satisfied his mind concerning the attaching a Sheriff in cases which did not interfere with the proceed- ings of this Court. When Lord Earlsfort this day ordered the Clerk of the Crown to issue the warrant on the attachment against Mr. Reilly, Judge Robinson leaned with his body half over the bench, and was heard to say the word— FORTHWITH.' Attachments have been granted by the Court of King's Bench in the course of this week, against the Proprietors of the Hibernian Journal, Dublin Evening Post, and Pue's Occurrences. LONDON.

" An officer's servant of the 39th is taken up and sent to Exeter jail for breaking open his ma- ster's bureau, and robbing him of a Sum of mo- He was taken after a long pursuit near the duty; but that these servants still continued to put on fires every day; and open the windows, in order to air the house. This, in the eye of the law, the Surveyor alledged, was sufficient to sub- ject Lord Adam, and quoted several decisions of the English JudgeS in Support of his argument. — Lord Adam replied, that whatever decisions might have been pronounced on the former act, they had by no means apply to the new One, which being imposed for a commutation Of the for- mer duties on tea, it would be absurd to suppose, that he should be taxed for consuming tea in a house which he did not inhabit. The Commissi- oners of Supply were unanimously of opinion, that Lord Adam was not liable. " The other case, determined in the same manner, was that of Mr. Alves, factor to his Grace the Duke of Buccleugh. Mr. Alves was charged with window lights, by the Surveyor, for a house inhabited by him in Dalkeith. Mr. Alves brought his appeal upon this ground, that he paid no rent for the house, but that it was the property of the Duke of Buccleugh ; and as his Grace already paid for two houses, viz. one in England, and one in Scotland, which was all the law required, it would be unjust to make him liable for a third. The Surveyor contended, that as the house was furnished, and with furniture the property of Mr. Alves, it could not be consider- ed as belonging is his Grace. The Commissioners, however, found, that as Mr. Alves was only a servant, and removeable at the pleasure of the Duke, the house must be held as the property of his Grace, and therefore not chargeable wi It duty. " For some time past, circular letters have been dispersing through the members of the different incorporations of this city, by the Committee of Reform, inviting the incorporations to take part in that business.

After a good deal of debate upon the Subject, however, the vote being called, these gentlemen found them- selves in a minority ; so that the reform will de- rive no strength or assistance from the Goldsmiths Company."

" A few days ago, the following curious marriage happened near Newtownbutler, in the county ol Fermanagh, The bridegroom and bride were Philip Beggin, of Bohoset, and Bridget Maguire, of Derrylee, at which place the marriage should have been celebrated. The dinner and every thing was ready, and waited only for the appearance of the bridegroom ; but by the uncommon delay, the company grew hungry, ate up the dinner, and, after waiting for the bridegroom till their patience were tired, they proposed a match for the bride among themselves, In as she might not be altogether disappointed; One of the company proposed two brothers, then present, to take her choice of them, Edward and Patrick Kierman, which the bride listened to, but upon Ned's. asking her seriously, which of the two would she make choice of, as either of tem would take her she chose Paddy, though blind of an eye. They set out that moment for New- townbutler, were married, and returning to the company, ended the wedding with their friends."

Extract of a letter from Edinburgh, Nov. 29. " This day the Commissioners of Supply, for the county o Edinburgh, determined two appeals in favour of the subject, on the late Window Act. As they are of general importance, we suppose a Short statement of their merits will not be disa- greeable to our readers.— The first, was an ap- peal at the instance of Lord Adam Gordon, against the Surveyor of the window lights, for charging him for his house of Preston- hall, in this county, with 14l. 9s. as the old duty of 144 win- dows or lights, for a year, and alSo of 81. as the new duties on said windows for half a year, toge- ther with 1s. 6d. of additional house- duty.— Lord Adam's defence against paying these duties was that his house being neither inhabited, nor pos- sessed by any living creature, fell to be considered only as a repository for his furniture; and that such houses were particularly exempted by the late act imposing this new window tax. The ad- ditional house duty, his Lordship insisted, was clearly not chargeable on any house in ScotLand, because it it only leviable, by the statute, Upon houses already charged a three shillings-, whereas no house in Scotland is charged above one shilling. — It was Contended, on the part of thc Surveyor, that the only method of ascertaining whether houses were inhabited not has been by their being furnished, which has invariably been' the case with house Preston- hall: it having [ been inhabited, though by servants only for veral years back, till of late that Lord Adam had removed them to an out house in order to evade : oe . -'' iv,^ aijvjAHy The new building at Christ Church; the only novelty of any magnitude in the University, will be finished in a few weeks, and will be very pretty.

THEATRICAL INTELLIGENCE. Thursday evening a new Tragedy was per- formed at the Theatre- Royal in Drury- lane for the first time ; the characters of which Were as follow, and were thus represented : — St. Valory, —— Montgomery, —— De Courcy, — Gifford, Lord Hildebrand, — The Lady of St. Valory, Mr. Smith.

Last Tuesday morning four men, armed with pistols, & c. attacked the two watchmen at Wood ford, in Essex, and after beating them very cruelly, bound them, and took their blunder- busses from them ; after which they attempted to rob a gentle ' house the neighbour hood, but it beiny well secured they were obliged to go off without any booty. On Wednesday a man was by Peter Green and John Woodhouse, Esqrs. committed to Newgate, on a charge against him of stealing and rowing away with a waterman's new wherry, the property of Vincent Green and John Royal his partner. Thursday evening a linen draper, near the Seven Dials, had stolen out of a cart in Holborn several pieces of coloured stuffs, and a box of pocket handkerchiefs, to a considerable amount, On Tuesday night, or early on Wednesday morning, tbe house of Mr. Turner, of Mile End, was broke open and robbed of plate and cash to the amount of 40I, Thursday night the house of a gentleman at Hendon was broke open and robbed of some cash, plate, & cc. Yesterday a man was by the Lord Mayor com- mitted to Newgate, on a charge against him of stealing divers printed books bound in leather, the property of Thomas Pitt, privately in his dwelling- house. IMPROVEMENTS. Building, Planting, . Sir Watkin Williams Wynne has nearly com- pleated his new piece of water, called the Dam Head, at Wynnstay ; but though the design was Browne's, and it has been finished accord- ing to that plan, the effect at present is in no point very striking. It may however be mend- ed. Other improvements are in contemplation the abovementioncd beautiful place. Mr. Wyatt has just been there ; and, from a design of his, there are some immediate improvements' in the approach to the house. Some shabby buildings in the village near the Park Gate are to be pulled down, and in their place some very pretty uni- form cottages are to be built. The improvement at Oxford, from the new pavement, J: c. is prodigious. All inferior streets and passages are soon to be put in the same good order. UUJfyOT? is t . « : r- - aifij > J t « Mr. Cumberland, to whom it is well known the stage has been indebted for a great variety of pieces, both serious aud comic, is the author of this tragedy, and has been Sufficiently SucceSs- ful to win the uninterrupted approbation of the Theatre ; few plays having ever perhaps been better received throughout, and Scarcely any having ended amidst such thundering peals of applause. We have not now leisure to trace the fable of the play, scene by scene— the sum and substance of it is this : Sr. Valory having left his lady, to go and fight under the Banner of the Cross, in Palestine, is set upon in the pass of the Pyren- nees by villains instigated by Lord Hildebrand, and left by them for dead ; the news of the ac- cident reaches his Lady, and she mourns his loss with great fervour and piety for twenty years, ' wearing her weeds of woe all that time, and earnestly imploring justice on her husband's murderer. In the interim, after a variety of ad- ventures, St. Valory, who had recovered from his wounds, disguises himSelf in the habit of a Carmelite, and under the sanction of that cha- racter introduces himself to Lord Hildebrand, as whose companion he embarks for England, ' t he ship is wrecked, and the play opens with their appearing to be the only persons Saved on the Shore of a small iSland near to that of Great Britain. They are rescued from the savage purpose of the barbarous natives of the coast by the active humanity of Montgomery, who in- forms them the castle in their view is the resi- dence of Lady St. Valory, and undertakes to procure them succour at her hospitable hands. In the castle all the incidents occur that make up the business and plot of the play. Montgomery having been educated at the charge of Lady St. Valory, is suspected by thoSe about her to be the object of her love, and so reported to St. Valory by Gifford, an ancient servant, to whom he makes himself known. Montgomery is in fact her son, and early in the piece is informed he is so by his mother, and commissioned by her co appear as her champion at the lists, to which, according to the custom of those days, Hilde- brand had been Summoned at her instance by the King, to meet and encounter lance to lance the armed Knight who should appear to challenge him for the murder of St. Valory. The father is jealous of the son, and upon his jealousy the whole of the plot turns; in the course of the play Hildebrand owns his guilt to the Lady, and dies full of remorse and penitence at her feet. At length an eclaircissement takes place, and the piece ends happily. This tragedy we have already said went off with great eclat; it Certainly did so, and Mr. Cumberland has every reason to be grateful to Mrs. Siddons, to whose noble exertions in a cha- racter obviously designed to demand great acting and draw forth all her powers, and artfully ma naged with that view, we ascribe the chief suc- cess of the representation. The play itself, like all Mr. Cumberland's productions, is a very un- equal composition, exhibiting a motley mixture of beauties and defects. The plot more than once shocks probability and does violence to na- ture, but it is nevertheless interesting and pathe- tick. Several of the Scenes remind the spectator of Douglas, and other tragedies ; but though si- milar incidents are presented, they arise from a less justifiable cause. Thus the jealousy of Ran- dolph is created by seeing his Lady caress the youthful stranger of an hour that is surely a probable ground for jealousy ; but in the Carme- lite, St. Valorys bosom is in a ferment and a rage, because his wife, having for twenty years together and ample reason to think herself a Wid dowr is made appear to him as the wife of ano- ther. Had Montgomery been her husband as he suspected. under such circumstances, where Would have been his crime, or her imprudent want of affection and virtue ? The language of the play is extremely various. In many Scenes we meet With pretty thoughts, fancifully expres- sed, and, in several, with what may fairly be Called, fine writing ; but in general there is too much of a servile imitation of Shakespeare, too much broken metaphor, and too many inflated phrases The Deity and the Language of Holy Writ are also too often alluded to. Such sacred subjects ought not to be made free with in a dra- matic composition, even though the manner of mentioning them be solemn, and the occasion Serious; the frequency of naming the Deity has ever been deemed deserving of reprehenSion in Home's Douglas. These are errors that arise rather from a falSe taste, than a weak pen. Mr. Cumberland can be a good writer when he pleases ; Let him throw aside imitation, and trust to his own powers, and few authors will be found his equal. The Carmelite was admirably well acted. Mrs. Siddons was often sublime, and always affecting. All her mad scenes, however, did not meet our ideas of a probable expression of the phrensy of, the brain. Richardson's Cle- mentina, if we may so phrafe it, is more natu- tally beside herself, and gives us a better idea of weakened reason. Mr. Kemble has scarcely ever appeared to more advantage than in Montgomery. He not only played well upon the whole, but in some scenes very capitally. Smith made as much of Valory, as his strange diSguise would permit. Lord Hildebrand was a sad part for any actor; and though Palmer tried to give it effect, he made a very woeful figure in it. He is a performer of too much merit, ever to be treated with ridicule, or the audience must have laughed outright, he looked so wonderful pitiful, whenever he appeared. The Prologue told us, that a new ship called the Carmelite, was to be launched from the Dock of Old Drury, but soon quitted the allu- sion, to intreat mercy for the author, and to awaken the generality of the audience in his be- half. It was well delivered by Mr. Palmer. The Epilogue was a more finished composition and while it served to compliment the candour of the author of the play, served also to enable Mrs. Siddons to confess her gratitude to the publick in a handsome manner. She spoke it so as greatly to interest her hearers, but she is not the best deliverer of an address we ever heard. She has an aukward custom of dropping the voice towards the end of a line. The Epilogue contained several good points. The Carmelite was decorated with some new scenes— one of them extremely grand and pictu- resque. The dresses were in general proper, and ths whole play had been obviously got up with great attention. With the powerful aid of Mrs Siddons's performance of Lady St. Va- lory, we have no doubt of the tragedy becom- ing extremely popular and drawing a consider- able deal of money. . Yesterday evening Mr. Holman made his first appearance in Comedy, in the character of Felix, in Mrs. Centlivre's Play of The Wonder, and was very favourably received. Sincerely wishing this young gentleman may deserve success in his new profession, it is our duty to remind him of such imperfections and errors, as are obvious in his performance of any new character, in order that be may improve in his representation of it, the next time it is repeated. In Felix he was yesterday evening, warm, empassioned, and interesting, but his manner wanted ease and na- ture. All his scenes were marked with a same-, ness, and that not a colouring, that Served to heighten the effect of the charafter. Don Felix, it is true, is expreSsly described in the play, as a young man apt to be jealous upon slight surmises and too ready to give way to the warmth of his temper in matters that concern women; but it- ' is not therefore necessary, that he should always utter his sentences with rapidity and vehemence. In the jealous scenes be- tween him and Violante, Mr. Garrick shewed there was great scope for an expert comedian to display his talents to advanage; indeed his performance of Felix, generally considered was not more remarkable for the truth of his ex- pression when his breast was torn by conflicting tu- mults, than for its pleasantry and playfulness in Situations less Serious, and where the author has deSigned the character to be rendered humourous and entertaining. In the latter, Mr. Holman fell greatly Short in respect to comic manner, and thus his drunken Scene failed of its wonted success To play the part well, he must learn more variety and more ease. His exhibition of yesterday evening was si bold Sketch, but it was much too violent a picture to be correct and natural. Miss Younge deserved praise for her Violante ; we could however have well Spared the one half of her plumage. Wilson's Gibby, and Edwin's Lis- sardo, were both pleasant; though we have Seen the two characters performed with greater effect. The play was in general properly dressed; Mr. Holman's habit in particular was extremely ele- gant and well fancied. Gibby would look better, if his Tartan or Plaid was not all of it so much alike.

While Vanity's fantastick schemes The gay coquette employ, Let virtue's nobler study form My Ethelinda's joy. For folly's transports of an hour, And low designing art, Be reason's sober pleasure thine, And innocence of heart. Tho' charms thus modest and ret'r'd Attract nO coxcomb's fight, ' Applauding angels own their worth, And view them with delight. Postscript. Saturday Afternoon, Dec. 4. For the Whitehall Evening- Post. ABRIDGEMENT OF The STATE or POLITICS THIS WEEK. THE noble Hibernian Earl, whose re- entranc to the Cabinet we so ardently deprecated th re weeks ago, has not yet made his public entry into that sacrum centrum of British politics; but has obtained a new title as then hinted, perhaps as a peace- offering for keeping him out of place and power. This English title is of a higher rank than his Irish title, contrary to the usual practice on these occasions! An Irish or Scotch earl usually sits on a baron's form in England ; and even a Scotch duke has been served with an English ba- rony What a profusion of honours has been grant- ed in this reign !— Either personal merit must be very plentiful among individuals, or discretion very scanty among Ministers who advise such lavishing of honours upon men whose merits are known on- ly to themselves! Perhaps their merits transcend common understandings. However, if they will but keep the new Mar- quis above alluded to out of our Cabinet, they are welcome to grant him not only a new title, but also to create a new order of nobility, to dignify and perpetuate the memory of the man who gave away North- America, and with it Great- Britain's honour and glory, with many other valuables— all for nothing ;— who, like another Joshua, com- manded the sun— not to stand still to Compleat his people's successes, but— to hasten his going- down upon his country's glory for ever.— Compare his words with his actions, and see whether he is not DupliciTy itself.— But enough of him at present: May he lie upon the shelf as long as he lives ! We are glad to see, however, that the appre- hended conculsion of the Cabinet has produced fo little alteration ; and that we would hope will prove an acquisition of strength, firmness and stability to the present Administration. Parliament is at last summoned to meet at a late day of the season, but early enough to do all the useful, necessary business in good time, if long- winded, wearisome, unmeaning speeches could be abolished, and short, nervous and pertinent ora- tions introduced in their room. And this must be the case, if ever the salvation of our nation is to be accomplished, and our peace and prosperity fixed on a permanent basis. Why should Divines the most able and accomplished be limited by all good judges to harangues of half an hour's duration, • n the most sublime and interesting topics; while windy, empty, frothy orators shall be unlimited to two, three or four hours vague declamation in public debate on political subjects ? There oujht to be bounds and limits to every thing human and sublunary. Ireland seems to have fallen from a high storm into a profound calm ; a circumstance which gives our Ministers time and opportunity to study and tiring forward fome regular, well digested plan of communication between the two islands. The foreign prints bring very little intelligence concerning the movements of the jarring powers • n the Continent, and that little very confused and contradictory. From the apparent moderation of the Emperor on the late provocation given him by the Dutch, hasty politicians infer that his views are pacific, and that he wants to make matters up With them. These do not consider, that the Em- peror conceals his resentment, and defers the exe- cution of his plans till a more convenient season, when he can be more fully prepared to strike the heavier blow without missing his aim. If his ene- mies had taken the field and been in action in tbe summer, they must now have gone into winter quarters: It would therefore be highly improper to call them forth to open a campaign at this ad- vanced season of the year. The spring will deve- lope the views and intentions of both parties. In the mean time negaciations may take place, and Mediators may interpose ; some perhaps se- riously and in earnest, others fictitiously, covering their own selfish designs under the mask of friend- ship to both parties. One thing we are confident of, that the three reported mediating Powers will never coincide in one general plan of pacification between the Emperor and the Republic. The Dutch fondly imagine that France, Prussia and Great Britain will interpose their good offices joint- ly, and vigorously, to bring about a reconciliation between them and the Emperor! And shallow politicians, even here, imbibe the wild idea, with- out examination or consideration. What sort of a mediation and plan of conciliation can be expected from the joint efforts of two of the greatest mari- time Powers of Europe, and rival Powers too, of opposite interests, views, designs, and principles, together with the efforts of an enterprising, sche- ming, sagacious and potent Land- Prince, conti- nually watching every important foreign event to turn it to his own advantage, in favour of the third great maritime Power in Europe, which has made the most of all the contending Powers in their se- veral wars for near a century past, without ever shewing a sincere and disinterested friendship for anyone of them? Let our sanguine Dutchified po- liticians solve this political problem : and then we will believe that the firm, determined, intrepid JOSEPH will be turned out of his way by their in- terference. Till then we shall as soon believe that the Russians will join the Turk to compel the Em- peror to acquiesce in the terms held out by the Grand Seignior, as that these three Powers will ef- fectually mediate between the Emperor and the Dutch. In fact, nothing could make our Court appear so little, low and contemptible, as joining in a mediatorial office with the French Court, which has so recently broke through all treaties, and all laws human and divine ; the law of nature and of nations, in fomenting a civil war in the British em- pire, instigating brother to fight against brother father again son, and children against parents, to gratify their inextinguishable hatred to the British name and nation 1 If we mediate with them suc- cessfully, we must guaranty with them I bind our- selves to them without their being bound 1 What bonds or obligations can be formed so strong that they cannon break through ? nay, that they have not already broke through ? If we mediate unsuc- cessfully, it is much if we are not drawn in to take one side or the other, whichever we should think the injured party, against the unrelenting party. This would be excellent game for the French, to throw all the burden upon us, and slip their own necks out of the collar! And for whom should we we do all this? For a people who, in spite of the most sacred obligations, moral, civil, political and religious, joined the French in their diabolical po- licy above dated ! It is scarce possible to reason upon It with any Christian patience! What is a fleet of French men of war gone into the Delaware for? To negociale a loan with Con- gress ? or to demand full payment, principal and interest, of a former loan ? Stand clear, ye Thirteen United States of America 1 something seems to be in the wind. L O N D O N. Extract of a Letter from Constantinople, Oct. 19. " It is now certain the mediation offered by the Court of France, with regard to the pre- tensions formed by the Emperor on some of the frontier places of this Empire, will be accepted by the Ottoman Ministry; but at the same time the Porte has declared, that though willing gratefully to accept this mediation, the Grand Signor hopes the Court of France will so order matters, that he shall not be obliged to yield to all the Emperor's demands, which he looks up- on to be exorbitant." If it be true that the French are employed as mediators between the Emperor and the Turks, it is almost a demonstration, that so far from intending to take an active part in favour of the Dutch, should matters come to extremity, their views are rather unfavourable to the Republic; for it is self- evident, that nothing could be more opportune for the Hollanders than the Empe- ror's being involved in a quarrel with so power- ful an enemy as the Grand Signor still is. The diversion made by him would oblige the Em- peror to retain the greatest part of his troops for the proteftion of his very extensive Eastern and Southern frontier, and prevent him from bring- ing into Flanders an army which the Dutch would not be able to cope with— Of all coun- tries in the world, Holland is one of the most proper for a defensive war; and if ever it is over- run, it must be by an army very much su- perior to that employed in its defence. The Dutch therefore must ardently wish, and the French, if they were friends to the Dutch, would endeavour to kindle the flame of war between the Court of Vienna and the Porte, instead of endeavonring to extinguish it, and by that means enabling his Imperial Majesty to fall with his whole weight upon Holland. The States General having at the request of ^ the Prince of Orange appointed a Committee to examine into the reasons why M. Byland's squadron did not sail for Brest, have reported, that having received a copy of a proposal made by his Serene Highness relative to a report, that be had written a private order to the Ad- miral not to sail for the faid port, notwithstand- ing the resolution of their High Mightinesses, dated Oct. 3 ; the Committee had, after mak- ing strict enquiry, found that there was not the least reason for the said allegation: That neither Count Byland not any of his officers had given the least hint that such order had ever existed, and consequently that the said allegation was false, forged, and calumnious ; the said Com- mittee reserving a power to give in a full report of the said affair when it shall be completed. The States having taken the said report into consideration, have ordered thanks to be re- turned to the Committee for their declaration, and a copy of it to be sent to his Serene High- ness. . Yesterday some dispatches were received from the Governor of Newfoundland, brought hi- ther by the Anne, Capt. Hardy, arrived at Falmouth, which mention that all the ships employed in the fishery were sailed for their re- spective ports. The expectation 0n that woeful tedium, the Westminster Scrutiny, is that the parish of St. Martin's will end with a balance about sixty bad on Charles Fox's side ; that in the little district of St. Martin's le Grand there will be as many more ; and that in St. Margaret's there will be at least three hundred declared bad. And what is worse than all, the pecuniary resources on the same side are also declared bad. Sir Cecil Wray, in the handsome town man- sion which he is finishing opposite to Carleton House, is to be commended for the most liberal, as well as punctual payment of the several workmen he employs.— A good example, which we hope will be followed by all his neighbours, Who gain the cap of those who make them fine, " But keep the book un- cross'd !" Extract of a Letter from Deal, Dec. 3. " Wind S. W. Came down yesterday, and sailed the Mary, Forrest, for New Providence. " Remain the Nimble cutter, a Dutch man of war, and Worcester, Craigie, for Jamaica." The papers have mentioned a singular robbery at Mr. Nokes's, Vestry Clerk of St. Sepulchre's, as having been committed last Monday evening, when the villains now in Newgate, after binding a cloth over the apprentice's eyes, fastened him into the cellar; but this daring infraction of the peace will apppear the more extraordinary, when it is mentioned that the fact was actually perpetrated during divine service last Sunday morning, instead of in the evening of Monday, as erroneously stated. The accident in Ely Place on Thursday by the falling of a scaffold, is not likely to be at- tended wiih such fatal consequences as were at first apprehended. The four men fell from a height of near 50 feet, and were much torn and wounded in their descent by striking against the scaffold boards, but it is fortunate that nei- ther has a single bone broke. The three la- bourers fell into the area of the building against which the scaffold was raised, and the task- master of the bricklayers alighted upon a hod of mor- tar and a wheel- barrow in the foot path. They are still in the Hospital, and deemed in a fa- VOurable way for recovery. Yesterday at Sr. Margaret's Hill, the prices of hops were, pockets from 4I. 18s. to 61. 01. and bags from 3I. 129. ts 5I. IOS. per cwt. Same day in Smithfield the average prices were: Beef jjd. mutton 3veal 4d. and pork 3^ d. the pound. House lambs sold from 14s. to j7f. each. Same day in Leadenhall- market raw hides fold ar the following prices : Ox from 15s. to il, in. and cow and heifer from 8s. to 20s. each. From the BOSTON ( NEW ENGLAND) GAZETTE. Boston, OH. 10. A gentleman at New- York, having business at Albany, was stimulated to extend his journey to Acquakanoch, the place of residence of a parcel of those people lately known in this country under the denomination of shaking Quakers. This congregation con- sists of about 90 persons under the care of a farmer at the place above- mentioned. When it happens that a Proselyte is made, he is advised by his brethren to convert his entire property into money, and deposit it with the farmer, who engages on his part to furnish a plentiful supply of earthly food and such other accommo- dation as may be necessary ; this essential pre- liminary being settled, the newly initiated pupils fall a shaking in whatever manner is most agree- able. Our correspondent was astonished at the facility with which they performed almost in- credible actions ; one woman, in particulur, had acquired such an Understanding in the prin- ciple of balance, as to be able to turn round on her heel a considerable time so swiftly that it was somewhat difficult to discriminate the ob- jest. They are extremely reluctant to enter in- to conversation upon the principles of their novel and apparently absurd worship, but con- tent themselves with declaring that they have all been very great sinners, and therefore it is that they mortify themselves by painful exer- cises.

THE Committee for conducting the Affairs of this Hospital think it proper to inform the Public, that, encouraged by same late Benefactions thev have taken into the House, TEN INCURABLE LUNATIC PATIENTS in Addition to the ONE HUN- DRED INCURABLES, who were before maintained ", u the HOSPITAL. From the dreadful Accidents, fatal to the Lives of many, that have been occaioned by insane persons, as well as from the heavy Burthen Expence that fall upon the friends of necessitous Lunatics; the Committee are im- pressed with the strongest Conviction, that the extension of THIS BRANCH of the Charity is a Work which Hu- manity and Policy unite to recommend. There are generally upon the Incurable List more than Two Hundred DANGEROUS Lunatics, that is, Persons who have been Discharged without Hopes of Cure, and who wait to be re- admitted, in Turn, whenever Vacancies shall he made by the Death of those already harboured ia the Hospital. A Period of some Years must elapse before an INCURA- BLE can be again taken in ; and as Mischiefs of the most serious and affecting Nature frequently happen, during that Interval, the Committee conceive they cannot perform a Service of greater Utility to the Public, than by attempt- ing to shorten its Duration. They have therefore given Directions for a Survey to be made of all the Apartments and Accommodations in the Hospital, m order that it may be made capable of containing a still greater Number of INCURABLE PATIENTS, if, through the Benevolence of the Well- disposed, they shall be enabled to support them HENRY WHITE, Steward.
