[ Price Three- pence. ] FRIDAY, May 13, 1785. [ Ready Money for Advertisements. ] SATURDAY'S POST. LONDON, ThurHay, MAY 5. ExtraCt of a Letter from. Hanover, April 20. " Prince William Henry, son of our august Sove- reign, who has nearly compleated his studies, is going it the expiration thereof on a tour through Germany to Italy, where he is about the middle of June to have a frigate at Leghorn waiting for him ; it being the or- ders of his august father, that he should make a naval campaign in the Mediterranean on board one of the ships of the British fquadron in that quarter. This young Prince, who is on the verge of compleating his twentieth year, has, since his residence in the Electo- rate, made himself amiable in the eyes of all ranks of persons: indeed of your two English Princas, it is dif- ficult to say which is most respected. The Bishop of Osnaburgh has been absent about three weeks, he having on the first breaking up of the weather, which has been remarkably inclement in this part of Europe, set off for his Principality to enquire into the distressed of the poor, and to settle some matters of Govern- ment." HOUSE OF LORDS. Tuesday, May 3. Heard Counsel further in the cause between Munro » nd Forbes. Read a second time the Scotch distillery bill, and several inclosure bills. Reported the Melton- Mowbray road bill. Passed the Turnstead poor bill. Read a first time the Commissioners of Land- tax bill. Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Tuesday, May 3. passed the Ipswich road bill. Received and read a petition from the woollen manu- facturers of Hants, against the Irish Propositions. Re- ferred to the Committee on the Irish trade. Read a firsft time the bill for allowing the importa- tion of goods from the island of Tobago, upon payment of British plantation duties. Received and read a petition from the debtors in the King's Bench, Marshalsea, and the New Gaol, praying relief. Ordered to lie on the table. Read a first time the bill for removing and rebuilding the City Compters, i Mr. Pitt presented several papers relating to Ireland. Ordered to be printed. Deferred the county election bill, and the bill to prevent bribery at elections, to this day se'nnight. Deferred the Call of the House that stood for to- morrow, to that day se'nnight. Mr. Sawbridge moved, that leave be given to bring in a bill for the relief of insolvent debtors of a certain description. Leave was granted accordingly, and a Committee appointed to prepare and bring in the same. Mr. Sawbridge then proceeded to make his annual motion for shortening the duration of Parliaments, which was negatived by a majority of 84. The House then refolved itself into a Committee oa the Irish trade, and after hearing evidence for a short time adjourned. It has been for several years past the custom in France, Germany and Great Britain, to depreciate the manufactures of Spain; but we are assured, upon the best authority, that they are,, and have been for some time past, in the most flourishing situation. The finest tapestry is made in the neighbourhood of Madrid, cheaper and equal to those made at the Gobelins. Plate glasses have lately been produced near that metropolis 163 inches long, and 93 inches broad; that is the largest in the world. The steel manufactures, such as guns, fwords, & c. • re in the highest perfection; but knives, and other kinds of hardware, are allowed to be much inferior to those in England. The truth of the above may be depended upon, and the latest accounts from Ireland mention that great quantities of Spanish goods have lately been imported into Corke, and other ports of that kingdom. Yesterday the Spanish Ambassador presented a me- morial of complaint from the Court of Madrid to the King, relative to the late disturbances in the bay of Honduras. A letter from a Gentleman at Teneriffe to his friend in Glasgow confirms the account copied from the fo- reign prints lately in the English papers, of the massacre ef 37 people who landed in the island of Hierro ( one of the Canary islands, subject to Spain) on the 14th of December last, by order of the Deputy Governor, on . a mere conjecture that they were infected with the plague. The letter received at Glasgow from Teneriffe conclude as follows: " The news of this barbarity has been received at Teneriffe by all ranks of people with the deepest con- cern and regret, and by none more than the Governor General, who deplores it extremely. He could not at first give credit to it; but was at length convinced of the fatal truth by letters from the wretch himself.— Exasperated to the highest pitch, he has given a com- mission to an officer of rank to go over to Hierro to take cognizance of this tragical affair. It is not yet known with certainty of what nation these unfortunate people were; but it is generally supposed they were from Ireland or Scotland, going to America." We understand that Mr. Blanchard and his fellow- traveller descended in Walthamstow marshes, a little beyond Lee- bridge. Multitudes witnessed their descent, and, after unbounded acclamations, the balloon was brought back in its inflated state, and in great triumph, to London; Mr. Blanchard and Miss Simonet were seated in the car. When they came to Barbican the lady alighted, when the little enterprising Frenchman gave a new specimen of his skill in the art, for, request- ing the gentlemen who held the strings to let the globe ascend, he mounted over the houses, and navigated the machine fo dexterously, as to bring it down in the yard from which he set out. Count Zambeccari and his company were disappoint- ed on Tuesday in their expectations of the success of his balloon, which was not filled till three o'clock in the afternoon, and was not then filled sufficiently to carry any considerable weight. Count Zambeccari, and afterwards a young lady of fortitude, whose name we understand to be Hall, took their stations in the boat, but in vain. Indeed the spectators were at a loss to determine whether the boat was suspended by the balloon as it should have been, or the balloon from the boat. This failure must truly be attributed to an un- foreseen accident; a small opening had burst at the top of the balloon. The company seeing this was the case, were satisfied with Count Zambeccari's endeavours to please them, and only regretted that his hopes were frustrated. Not so the populacc. They tore down the scaffolding, reduced part of the wall into ruins, and had committed more mischief, but for the appearance of the guards. Fourteen of the rioters are taken into custody. Saturday last died in the New Gaol, Borough, John Rogers, who lay under sentence of death, for horse- stealing. He left in his apartment a log- book ( as he styled it) containing the number of horses he had sto- len, with the day of the month, and the owners names, which amounted to 568. SUNDAY'S POST. LONDON, Friday, MAY 6. extract of a Letter from Hamburgh, April t6. " This morning a courier passfed through this city, on his way to Copenhagen, with the melancholy news of the death of his Serene Highness Prince Frederick, reigning Duke of Mecklenburgh Schwerin, aged 67 years. This Prince, leaving no children, is succeeded by his nephew, Prince Francis- Frederick." Vienna, April to. We have just received advice that a fourth Chief of the Rebels, named Peter Postch, has been arrested in Transylvania. HOUSE OF LORDS. Wednesday, May 4. Heard Counsel further in the Cause between Doug- lass and Chalmers. In a Committee went through the Scotch distillery bill, the Pickering and Kinnerfley inclosure bills. Read a second time the Commissioners of Land- tax bill. Passed the Edinburgh police and the Melton Mow- bray road bill. Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Wednesday, May 4. Came to several resolutions on ways and means, to be reported to- morrow. In a Committee went through the bill for regulating the office of Treasurer of the Navy with amendments. Read a second time the Tobago importation bill. Read a first time the bill to repeal the cotton act. The House then went into a Committee on the ad- justment of the Commercial System with Ireland, when evidence was heard on the part of several manufactu- rers. After which the House adjourned. Dispatches were yesterday received in town from the Continent, announcing that at length the dispute be- tween the Dutch and the Emperor is settled. The terms are humiliating to the former. They are to send two Ambassadors to Vienna to apologize for the insult committed on the Imperial flag— to concede a partial navigation of the Scheldt, together with three small forts— and to a million and a half of florins as a reim- bursement of the Emperor's expences. The occasion of Mr. Fox's visit to St. James's has now transpired. Every body knows that the P of W has for a considerable time expressed a very ardent desire to make an excursion to the Continent. The Court were perplexed, and every means was used to prevail on him not to think of quitting the kingdom, which for a time had the desired effect. Lately, how- ever, he renewed his application to his M for leave, and was exceedingly pressing. Mr. Fox had in- fluence with his R H , to make him give over all thoughts of a foreign tour, by representing to him the impressions it would give the public mind of his imbibing notions incompatible with the constitution of the empire he would one day be called upon to go- vern. Lord S informed his M , that what he so ardently wished for, Mr. Fox had accom- plished. Upon this the K expressed himself in terms of warm approbation of Mr. Fox, and gave Lord S leave to say to Mr. Fox how much his M thought himself obliged to him. Upon this Mr. Fox went to the drawing- room to make his bow in return. We have this from authority on which we rely. Mess. Adams and Sayre are now on the seas in their way to England; the former comes over as Ambassador from the United States of America to our Court, the latter as his Secretary. The legislature of Virginia have given his Excellency General Washington 40 proprietary shares in the new navigation up the river Potowmack, and 1oo shares in that of James- River: the former at 1ool. sterling each, and the latter at 200 dollars each, making in all 42,500 dollars. By the last accounts from Gibraltar we hear that the worthy veteran is preparing to return to his native coun- try, and that Sir Robert Boyd, lately Lieutenant- Go- vernor, will speedily embark, as commander in chief of that Fortress. It is reported that a new effort has been made by the King of Spain for the restitution of Gibraltar; but that the Minister has put a positive negative upon that re- quisition. Other reports are circulated, that great part of the island of Hispaniola has been offered as a compensation for Gibraltar, without effect. Wednesday the Directors of the Bank of England came to an acquiescence in the Minister's proposal, of lending Government the sum of one million, at five per cent. Yesterday the return of the writ of mandamus, brought by Mr. Wooldbridge, came on to be argued at Westminster, when, after an objection taken by Mr. Bearcroft, as to the- sufficiency of the return, and a reply from the Recorder, Lord Mansfield ordered the matter to stand over till next term, to be argued upon all the points. Yesterday morning, about fix o'clock, a young man, genteely dressed, was found hanging on one of the trees in the Park, by the guard.— He proves to be a youth who had received a genteel education, but whose friends afterwards insisted upon his going ' prentice to a hatter: this he considered as a degradation; and ' tis thought had so great an effect upon him, as to occasion his com- mitting so rash an action. The Castle cap, is an indication, that the women are determined to resist all assaults amorous! This mode of defence, is no doubt derived from the bonnet, made use cf by Engineers in an advanced post. Muslin cloaks begin to spread their transparency to the pervading rays of spring, and beauty shews its form with heightened effect, through the modest covering. The fine set of grey horses, late belonging to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, are purchased by the Duc de Chartres, and sent off to France. The Prince of Wales has given the famous horse which he bought of Mr. Wentworth, the name of Rockingham. SCOTS FISHERIES. The patriotic Mr. Knox has been examined for four days before the Committee of the House of Commons, appointed to enquire into the state of the fisheries. We have been favoured by a correspondent with the sub- stance of Mr. Knox's evidence, contained in the follow- ing propositions, which that gentleman took the liberty of recommending to the attention of the Committee, and to which, we have no doubt, they will pay that regard which so very important, and truly national an object deserves. 1. That the busses be permitted to clear out, either for the Shetland or Hebride fishing, any time after the first of June. 2. That they be allowed to fish, to purchase from the boats, or both; to send home the herrings, or be their own carriers, as circumftances shall dictate for their own conveniency, without any restriction what- ever respecting the time of being out; by which means the West India ships will be early supplicd, to the mu- tual advantage of merchants, planters, and all parties concerned. 3. That the fishers be permitted to follow the her- rings, without any distinction as to the seas or shores, whether Britifh, Irish, or the Isle of Man. 4. That any buss may go through the necessary exa- mination at the place where she is fitted out, and that she may proceed immediately to the fishing ground, wi thout being obliged to stop at any place of rendezvous. 5. That the bounty may be extended to busses of ten tons burden, in place of being given, as at present, to none under so, or above 80 tons. 6. That all vessels not exceeding 120 tons be per- mitted to go upon the bounty, but to receive a bounty upon 80 tons only. 7. That the present bounty is inadequate to the ex- pence of the buss- fishing, and that a small bounty of xol. annually to boats of five men each, would greatly facilitate the herring fishery. 8. That the white fisheries require parliamentary aid around the whole kingdom, and may thereby be carried to a great extent. 9. That the seal and dog fishing should be encou- raged. 10. That the salt laws be amended, or totally abo- lished, as far as they regard the fisheries. 11. That the Custom- house fees be abolished as far as they regard the fisheries. 12. That a passage be opened between Loch Fyne and Loch Crinan, of eleven or twelve feet water. 13. That light- houses, beacons, and buoys, be fixed in the most eligible situations for the fisheries and navi- gation in general. 14. That quick- sailing cutters be stationed between the Shetland Islands and Dunbar on the one- side, and Cantyre on the other, to follow and watch the course of the shoals, for the information of the busses and boats. MONDAY'S POST. LONDON, Saturday, MAY 7. We hear that the Turks, countenanced and assisted by the French, have made a movement towards the Crimea, which has very much alarmed, and will com- pletely engage the Russians. A number of the ablest engineers of France have been employed for fome time, and they have erected a chain of forts that are deemed uncommonly strong. By a letter from Naples we understand that while fome workmen were digging for the foundation of a wall, at Palermo, they discovered a deep subterraneous passage, vaulted, and cut into the rock. The work- men could not at first descend a great way, but the Prince de Torremuzzi being apprised of this circumstance, . came to the spot, examined the place, and found a set of catacombs of the same kind with those at Rome He perceived several streets, high enough to enable him to walk without stooping, and wide enough to ad- mit three or four men a- breast. Each of these internal streets was divided into many others, and they were all lighted through certain vents or air- holes in the vaulted part. On the sides of the streets were several niches where the bodies were placed; in each of them were found part of sculls, other human bones, and bits of chalk vases. The Prince has sent an account to the Viceroy of Sicily, who has ordered every thing proper for repairing this monument. Another entry has been made into it, and more vent holes in order to purify the air, while the workmen remove the earth which obstructs the passage into many of the streets. The place appears to be of great extent, and it is expected many important monuments, inscriptions, urns, See. will be found. The accounts of the present drought in France an truly singular. In the internal provinces of that king dom, not only ponds and lakes are so dried up, that the peasants are in want of drink for their cattle, and the by reduced to the necessity of killing and disposing of them; but the canal of Bourdeaux, between San San- toigne and Chateau de Mer, is so low, that barges can- not pass. The fruits of the earth are dried up, and they have a terrible prospect of grain and the vintage, unless rains fall shortly. In Italy, Spain, and Piedmont, the complaints are similar, except in the provinces next the sea, where the dews are so copious, as to supply the place of showers. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Thursday, May 5. Mr. M. A. Taylor moved, that leave be given to bring in a bill for regulating the process of the Courts of Conscience, and for ascertaining the fees to be taken from persons imprisoned by such process in the City of London, the County of Middlesex, and Borough of Southwark. Leave was granted. Mr. Pitt said, that as there was now but one petition, that from Stafford, before the House, praying to be • * This PAPER sent weekly to any Part of GREAT- BRITAIN ( FREE OF POSTAGE) by Order addreffed to ROSE and DRURY. GEORGE BRITON Newsman from Lincoln to Louth, through Wragby and Horncaftle, fets out from Louth early every Thurfday Mornmg, and returns with Papers the next Morning. Perfons refiding upon or near the Road may '. e regularly luppliei with this Paper by applying to him. th « heard by Counsel, on the subject of the Irish trade, he hoped he should notbe deemed too precipitate in giving notice, that if no other petition was presented in the intermediate time, he should, next Thursday, call on the House for their final decision. Mr. Gilbert brought up the resolutions of the Com- mittee in favour of a partial repeal of the tax on fusti- ans, callicoes, & c. Lord Surrey recommended strenuously, that in fra- ming the bill for the repeal, care should be taken to make such regulations as would stop the growing pro- gress of difcontent, both in the manner of collecting that part of the tax which was suffered to remain, and in distinguishing between the different species of ma- nufacture A Committee was than appointed to prepare and bring in the bill. The House rose about half nine o'clock, and adjourned to next day. Letters from fort St. George, dated in October last, speak of ' dangerous mutiny amongst the Europeans at the cantonments at Arcot, on the reduction of their Batta, which however by the spirited exertions of General Home who commanded, and of the several King's officers commanding the different corps, was happily suppressed. A serjeant of artillery, one of the most active, was tried and condemned to be blown from a cannon, which sentence was carried into execution. Very full instructions are preparing to be sent to our Ambassador at Madrid, to accommodate the affair which has happened on the Musquito- shore with the Spanish Ministers, and to assure the Catholic King, that if after an impartial enquiry the disturbances ap- pear to have originated with the British settlers, they shall be remedied, insisting that the King of Spain ob- serve the same conduct towards his subjects. Thursday morning, about nine o'clock, Mr. Sadler and a gentleman ascended in a balloon from Mr. Dods- well's gardens, Moulsey Hurst, Surry, amidst a great number of spectators. Mr. Sadler filled the balloon, though a large one, in the space of two hours and a half: it arose in a majestic manner, and continued in fight a full hour and a half, to the great satisfaction of the company assembled. It took a S. E. direction; and it was intended by Mr. Sadler to continue longer in the atmosphere than any one has yet done, having taken up with him more than 3oo weight of ballast.— Mr. Sadler and the gentleman are provided with proper instruments for philosophical experiments. A correspondent says, that Mr. Sadler and his com- panion came down in a field near Rochester, where a labouring man was at work, who was vary much alarm- ed at the balloon, and it was with great difficulty they could prevail on him to lay hold of a rope which they threw out for the purpose of assisting them in their descent, which he at last confented to, and held it till they alighted; but before they could procure any bal- last, the balloon pulling rather strong, and the man having no very great relish for his employment, let go his hold, when it ascended with great rapidity, leaving the aerial travellers behind, taking the direct course over the German ocean, A person who offers to go up in a balloon for the en- tertainment of the public, has a double chance of meet- ing with death— If he does not go up at the time ap- pointed, he must fly to avoid being knocked on the head by the mob. And if he goes up he has the one chance of succeeding to balance all the dangers of the voyage. So that with a public balloonist it is really and truly neck or nothing ! Saturday morning, between two and three o'clock, a most dreadful fire broke out at Messrs. Webster and Stevens' turpentine warehouses, in Potter's Fields, Horsleydown, and which was not entirely got under till the afternoon. It is impossible to form any opinion of the damage which has been sustained by this dreadful conflagration, which had on Saturday at noon destroyed as many houses, warehouses, & c. with all their con- tents, as covered between three and four acres of ground, together with an Irish brig, and several hoys belonging to the East- India Company, which were ly- ing near their tea- warehouses in that neighbourhood, and which also are destroyed. Very fortunately, how- ever, there was only a part of a ship's cargo of tea in the warehouses that were consumed by the fire, and a great quantity thereof was saved. It is a most fortunate circumstance that no wind was stirring in the morning, or the whole tier of shipping which lay opposite the premises destroyed must have probably shared asimilar fate. Wednesday as the son and journeyman of Mr. Monk, glazier, in Finch- lane, Cornhill, were cleaning the window of Drapers- Hall, the boards, of which they had made a slight scaffolding, gave way: the journey- man caught hold of the window, which saved him, though his hands were most terribly cut with the glass; the son fell upon the pavement, by which accident he broke both his arms- and one leg; he languished about three hours after the accident, and expired in great agonies. Wednesday as a young man, a livery- servant to Mrs. Swann, at Cheshunt, in Hertfordshire, was riding to town, his horse fell with him in Lower Edmonton, by which accident he was so much hurt that he died the same night; HOUSE op COMMONS. Friday, May 5. Agreed to the repeal of the Tobago Importation bill. . Ordered to be engrossed. Deferred the Committee on the Gibraltar head- mo- ney bill, to Tuesday. In a committee went through the bill for regulating the office of Treasurer of the Navy, with amendments. To be reported on Monday. Passed the Halbrooke inclosure bill.

Ordered in a bill to explain the excise laws. Ordered an address to his Majesty that there be laid before this House an account of the internal duties in Ireland. Deferred ways and means to Monday. Lord Penrhyn moved, that an account be laid before that House, of all the foreign and home made spirits that have been staved for the last year. The motion passed without a division. The House in a Committee, Mr. Gilbert in the Chair. Mr. Dempster moved, that the sum of 5489I. 17s. be granted to Major. General Murray, in consideration of a verdict, with costs, obtained against him by James Sunderland. Mr. Jolliffe, Mr. Fox, and Mr. Sheridan argued against Parliament granting a sum of money without being acquainted with the merits of the case, not that they by any means doubted the title General Murray may have to such a claim, but that it would be incur- ring a disgrace on Parliament to vote a sum of money without seeing a reason for so doing. Mr. Steele and Mr. Pitt supported the motion, as the merits of the case had been examined by . his Ma- jesty's Ministers; and found sufficient to warrant their support. A short conversation then ensued, after which the question was put: For the motion, 37 Against it, - 25 WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDON, Monday, MAY 9. Extract of a Letter from Paris, April 29. " An arret of the King's Council of State was issued on the 16th of this month, which, in consideration of thi scarcity of forage in Lorraine, and the difficulty of nourishing cattle, occasioned by the dryness of the sea- son, permits the inhabitants of the said province to send their horses and horned cattle into all the woods of his Majesty and those of the communities ( except coppice woods) and let them graze there till the first of October next.

Passed the Scotch distillery bill Read a second time the Surry road and Downton in- closure bills. Adjourned to Monday. Majority, . — 32 Mr. Beaufoy, after a short introduction, wherein he stated the grievances that often happened from the summary decisions of the Commissioners of Excise, and Justices of Peace, in matters of revenue, which he said were contrary to the true spirit of the liberty of the subject, inasmuch as it deprived them of the right of trial by Jury, moved for leave to bring in a bill to ex- plain and amend all the laws now in being relating to the powers given to the Commissionsirs of Excise, and the Justices of the Peace, in judging of matters of revenue. The motion passed without opposition. The House then went into a Committee on the ad- journment of the commercial intercourse with Ireland, Mr. Clarke, a check manufacturer, was examined in support of the propositions. Adjourned. Yesterday in the Court of King's Bench, at West- minster hall, the late master of a parish workhouse, and a furgeon, his son- in- law, were brought up to the bar of the Court, to receive judgment for a conspiracy in bargaining for the corps of the paupers, which were deprived of burial, and delivered for dissection to the surgeon. This prosecution was commenced by the parish, which had turned out the workhouse keeper, and both the defendants were found guilty the sittings after last term. In consideration of the just punishment inflicted by the parish, and the consequent unlamented loss of the keeper of the workhouse in his private af- fairs, through this abominable traffic in human flesh, the Court fined him only 10I. and imprisoned him three months. The surgeon, by reason of his profes- sion, pleading in mitigation, was fined lol. and dis- charged. Thursday night a gentleman from Buckinghamshire, put up at the Wind- mill inn, St. John's- street, and on Friday morning rose apparently in perfect health ; but while looking at his horse in the stable, he complained of indisposition, and retiring to his room,, he was found there about half an hour afterwards quite dead. Mr. Blanchard's balloon ascended again on Saturday about half part two o'clock, from Langhorn's Repository in Barbican, after he had made a number of manoeu- vres for the entertainment of the spectators, nearly as high as the houses. The ascension was peculiarly fine, the progress of the vessel gradual and even, and formed a majestic spectacle. Innumerable crouds were assem- bled on the spot, and from its course towards the South- East, afforded a full sight to the metropolis in general. A very curious petrefaction has been lately found in White Friars, weighing near seventy pounds, and shew- ing the very colour and fibres of the wood. Another piece, seemingly a fragment of the same block, ( but weighing thirty pounds) was found there before in 1763, and sold to a Member of the Royal Society. Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock, a fire broke out in the house of Mrs. Rycot, milliner, in Great Turnstile, Holborn, occasioned by the carelessness of a boy lighting a fire with shavings, which burnt that house, with the stock and trade, and two others before it was extinguished. " the Prince rf Wales yesterday morning visited Hyde- park ride, and afterwards had a select party of some of the principal characters in the nation to dine with him. Amongst the Ladies who yesterday sauntered in Ken- sington- Gardens, none were more to be distinguished than Mrs. Hastings;— she was in company with two Nabobinies, and the little Satrap of the East ! The Ladies who yesterday visited Kensington- Gar- dens, and those who paraded in its environs in carriages, had their tresses so covered with red dust from the gra- vel pits, that it is expected they will not for some time have occasion to use mareschal. Extract of a Letter from Glasgow, March 30. " William Steven, senior, portioner of Flender, William Steven, junior, and David Steven, sons of the said William Steven, senior, should have been tried at the last circuit, for committing a forgery on the Aberdeen bank ; but the diet was deserted on account of the absence of Thomas Morton, late flocking- maker in Glasgow, a material witness, who was then in Ire- land. Morton had returned to this country with a view of being an evidence for convicting them of the above crime, and David Steven was indicted at this cir- cuit for murdering the said Thomas Morton, by shoot- ing him through a window while sitting at his stocking- loom in the workshop of John Black, stocking- weaver, in Glasgow, upon the evening of the 9th of November last. The Jury returned a verdict finding the pannel guilty; and he was sentenced to be hanged upon the 8th day of June next, and his body given to Professor Hamilton to be dissected. " Neil M'Lean, armourer, in Glasgow, was accused of forging guinea notes of the banking company, com- monly called Glasgow Arms Bank, and uttering them knowing them to be forged. To save time and trouble to the Court, the prosecutors confined their evidence to one of the notes libelled; and the proof being clear, he was found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged on the first of June next."

LONDON, Tuerday, MAY 12. extract of a Letter from Lisbon, April " The last advices from Goa announce, that the In- dian Princes in the neighbourhood of that city, per- ceiving the feeble state and negligence of the Portu- gueze government, had determined to carry destruction into the country, and take possession of several villages.- Upon which Major- General de Veiga, notwithstanding his troops were in bad condition, and not well disci- plined, marched against them, gained a complete victory, and obliged the Indians to raise the siege of Sanquelin, which they had commenced, and forced them to sue for peace: this renders the government of Goa more for- midable than it has ever been."

BUDGET. - . The House then resolved itself into a Committee of Ways and Means to raise the supply granted to his Majesty. The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose, and after laying before the House a state of the finances, pro- posed the following new taxes, in order to raise the sum of 420,0001. per annum. He propofed first to lay aa an additional tax on MEN SERVANTS, At the following rate, including the old tax, for every man servant under three, ll. 5s. ditto, from three to five, 2I. 10s. from five to seven, il. 15s. from seven to ten, 2I. and for every one above that number 3I. The produce of the new part of this tax, he said, he would take at £. 35,000 His tax he proposed was on MAID SERVANTS. For one female servant, is. 6d. ( or two in one family, 5s. for three or more in the same family los. This tax he estimated at £. 140,00a The third was on RETAIL SHOPS. Which he proposed should be taxed at somuch in the pound, on the rent paid for them; One shilling per pound, from 4I. to lol. a year, from lol. to 15I. one and three- pence-, and after that he would add 3d. for every five pound up to 25I.— The produce he rated at £. 120,030 His fourth tax was entirely new, it was on GLOVES. He proposed that on every pair of gloves, under the value of 10d. there should be laid on a duty of one penny, on ditto from lod. to l6d. a duty of two- pence: and a duty of three- pence a- pair above the value of l6d. The gloves to be stampt, and the duty collected in the same manner as the duty on hats. The gloves tax he said, would produce £\ ^ o, oo » The fifth was on PAWN- BROKERS. He intended that these people should in future be obliged to take out a licence, for which each should pay 5I. a- year; and from this, he calculated, would arise an annual revenue of £. 15,093 The sixth was an additional tax on POST HORSES. Which at one halfpenny ( additional, per horse, per mile) would produce £. 50,009 The seventh and last was on SALT. No new duty, eo nomine, is to be laid on this article; but a regulation is to take place, from which an addi- tion will be made to the revenue. There is now an allowance of four barrels in every 100 for waste so that only 96 barrels out of 100 actually pay the salt duty. he thought this allowance more than was ne- cessary : indeed much more than could or ought to be expected under the head of waste. He proposed, therefore, that in future the allowance of only one barrel and a half out of every 100 should be made; f » that 98 and a half barrels in 100, instead of 96, would pay duty in future. This resoluition, he said, would add to the revenue arising from salt, £, 12,000 After fome debate, the question was then put re. spectively on the several resolutions, which were car- lied without a division. The House adjourned at half after nine o'clock. Sunday a fire broke out at a baker's in Featherstone- street, Bunhill- row, occasioned by the heating the oven which entirely consumed all his books, stock in trade, & c. and left the house a shell, but very little damaged the adjoining houses, there being strong party walls. Yesterday afternoon fome Revenue Officers having received information of a private distillery in Dean- street, Holborn, entered the premises, and made a seizure of all the implements, & c. therein. Two men, who were at work in the place, were secured; but the master found means to make his escape over the top of the house. Yesterday a person who lately was master of a vessel, was examined before Sir W. Plomer at Guildhall, for stealing bank notes, value 130I. at Newmarket, from a horse- dealer, who lay at an inn there, and fortunately missed the notes so early, that the prisoner was pursued to London, and the property, within about 61. found upon him. He was committed for trial at the assizes ia Cambridge. P O S T S C R I P T. FRIDAY, May 13. There is perhaps no country in Europe in which the system of finance has been carried to such an excess as in Great Britain, from the year 1584, to the prefent time; it has been under the necessity of increasing its revenue, from about two, to at least fifteen millions per annum. It is, however, fortunately the opinion of some of the first political arithmeticians, not only in this kingdom, but in France and other parts of Europe, that the State can still bear that burden, heavy as it is. But as any considerable addition to it would probably be found unsupportable, and, at any rate, as such a system must sooner or later end in total bankruptcy, or the most grievous oppression, it is full time for the na- tion at large to consider what plan is the most likely to relieve us, and our posterity, from the danger either of infamy or distress. In consequence of a dispute on Wednesday night last, at a fashionable tavern, between a wine- merchant and a gentleman of the faculty, a duel was fought on Fri- day morning near Pancras, and the medical practitioner being wounded in the right hand at th « first shot frem his antagonist, their friends interfered, and the matter was happily accommodated. It was Mr. Wyndham, Member for Norwich, who made the excursion with Mr. Sadlier from Moulsey Hurst. They were very near being driven out to sea, without having the power of crossing the Channel. There cannot be a stronger proof adduced in the in- nocency of Mr. Atkinson, than, that the Bankrupt leader among the fraternity of his prosecutors, is hourly fabricating means to perplex the fair and candid state of Mr. Atkinson's case, which he has submitted to public investigation. From this circumstance, there is good reason to draw conclusions, not very favourable to his desperate accuser. The Due de Chartres, at the late Newmarket meet- ing, came off pretty well— and as a gentleman should do— that is— without either winning or losing much. Mr. Pitt has conduced himself with no great saga- city in bringing over a number of Irish witnesses to shew that the Irish propositions will not be so favourable as supposed to the manufacturing interests of that coun- try ; but he must think all the people of this country are Irish too, if he imagines they will give much credit to a testimony so evidently interested and partial, or have confidence in a man who adopted such a measure to delude them, on a point of such magnitude and importance. The number of petitions before the House of Com- mons against the Irish commercial propositions, amount to fifty- three. These are from the principal manufactu- ring towns of Great Britain; all of whom will have their trade seriously affected, unless ths Minister re- nounces his ill- advised project. May I, 1785.

WANTED immediately a Stone- Mason j any sober industrious Person, well skilled in that Business, may have good Wages and constant Employ- ment by applying at the above Place. LINCOLN, Friday, MAY ig. To such a daring pitch has house- breaking got to, that almost every night the inhabitants of this town are alarmed with attempts being made in some. quar- ter,— On Sunday night last the house of Mr. Cowper ; in the Minster- yard was beset by some villains, who , got over the garden wall which led to the back door, they were providentially discovered by a young lad who sat up for Mrs. Cowper who was out; on his alarming the family the rogues retreated into the - garden, where they continued upwards of an hour! before they went off. They had a light with them, ' which was seen to cross the yard several times; on i their approach, a hoe which flood in the yard was. thrown down, and it is supposed one of them received a cut from it, as a small quantity of blood was found| upon it and on the ground ; some gunpowder and a piece of an handkerchief was found in the garden house next morning. On Tuesday night last the house of the Rev. Mr. Sympson, in the Vicar's Court, was attempted to be robbed, but without effect. 5 The same night the shop of Mr. Marshall, clock- maker, was attempted, and a piece of the shutter broke of, it is supposed th « villains Were disturbed, as no further mischief was done. The London door- chain, so portable in its use, and necessary to prevent rushing in, is recommended to all families, as also small spring bells for the lower shutters. We hear that the inhabitants of the Bail and Close have established a night- watch of four then, who are to patrole the streets from ten to five o'clock. On Friday last was committed to our castle, Lydia Foster, charged with stealing some handkerchiefs, and several other articles, the property of a person at Silk Willoughby, near Sleaford. And on Tuesday last was committed to the same gaol, William Fear, for stealing several fleeces of wool, the property of Mr. Witworth of Assenby, near Spilsby. Died, on Monday, Miss Ann Pettener, of this place, a maiden lady, aged 63. On the same day died, Mr. Henry Stanley, an eminent builder and joiner, aged 48. Also on the fame day died, Mrs. Lambert of Sud- brooke- Grange, widow of the late Mr. Lambert of that place. Died, a few days ago, Mr. Greetham, of Boatham, near this City, farmer. An extraordinary fine ox was weighed a few days ago, at Sawtry, in this County, and drew up 224 stone ( at 14 pounds to the ftone) and nine pounds over. This animal is near nineteen hands high, about four years old ; and was bred upon a salt marsh in the Fens. On Tuesday se'nnight the Mayor and Corporation of Kingston- upon- Hull, called a Meeting of the in- habitants of that town and neighbourhood, to con- sider of the expediency of abolishing the garrison and where it stands to make a dock- yard for the service of government; when it was unanimously agreed by the gentlemen present, that it might with safety be abo- lished, provided a fort was erected ; and in time of war armed ships ot floating batteries stationed near the entrance of the Humber, and a fleet of ships to cruise from Flambrough- Head to the Dogger- Bank. At Liverpool Sessions, six journeymen joiners were tried for a combination with several other journeymen in the same branch, to raise their wages ; when, after a hearing of upwards of two hours, they were all found guilty, and pursuant to the act of parliament, they were sentenced to pay the penalty of 10 I. each, within six days, or to be imprisoned twenty days in the common goal, and during that time to be fed on bread and water only. The sailors in the port of Shields still continue in the same turbulent state ; no agreement with the maf- ters having yet taken place. It is, however, much to be lamented, that those people cannot attempt to effect their wishes, without descending to the most shocking cruelties, and being guilty of such violent ' outrages as are a disgrace to a civilized people. One man has been killed, and several others very severely. hurt by the inhuman practice of what they call Stang- ing, viz. carrying any person they may take a dis- like to, for several hours together, across a pole, which they jerk up and down, just as mere wanton- mess prompts them. Only two ships have been able to go to sea, though a great number are lying ready loaden for that purpose. We hear from Cork, that a large Guinea man belong- ng to Bristol, being last January at Old Calabar, on the Windward coast of Africa, where she took in a number of slaves, the crew mutinied, confined their officers, and put to sea, with an intent to sell the cargo at some od the Spanish settlements in the West- Indies. But while they were debating how they should dispose of their late commanders, a strong S. W. wind drove them near the coast of Morocco, where they were taken by two pira- tical corsairs, and carried into Marmora. Thefs wretches have paid dearly for this atrocious act, being all sent up the country as slaves; but the Captain and Officers have been released, at the instance of Mr. Da- billenove, the French Consul, who accepted bills on ! their owners, and advanced them money sufficient ti> provide necessaries for their return, with the first op- portunity. This intelligence was brought by a Portu- gueze brig from Madeira, who, on the aoth of March spoke with a Dutchman, bound from Salee to Rotter- dam, with the unfortunate Captain and his Officers on Loven der Charls " This with mi kind lov to yow, is to tel yow after all our sport and fun i am lik to pay fort; for i am with child, and wereof my sister Nan knos it, and cals me hore and bich and is redy to ter mi sol owt; and Curs Jack Seny kices her evry tim he corns ashor, and the faci dog wold have lade with me to, but i wold not let him, for 1 will be alwas honest to yow. therefor ! der Charls cum ashor, and let us be marred to safe mi, yartu : and if yow have no moni i will paun mi new 1 stais, and sel mi to new smocks yow gav me, and that will pay the parson, and find us a dinner, and pray der der Charls com ashor ; and, der Charli, dont be fraed for want of a ring, for i hav stol owr Nans, and the nasty tod shal never have it mor ; for she tels about that i am goin to hav a bastard : and god Bles yowr lovin sol cum ashor, for i longs to be marred accordin to yowr promis, stil i will be yowr vartUs wife tel death.

THE following epistle was written by a girl at Deal, to her sweet- heart, a sailor, 011 board a man of war in the Downs. The simpliciiy of her ex- pression gave me some diversion on the first reading ; on the second I could not help comparing her senti- ments with those of Ovid's heroines, and found them much the same, when the latter were stript of the polite dress which their courtly secretary had given them. The lieutenant of the ship, who communicated it, found it on board twisted up with tobacco in it; by which it should seem, that our seafaring spark had as little regard for his mistress, after enjoyment, as if he had been of a more illustrious rank. The following Lines were sent us with the. Letter, which we suppose were designed as a Parallel. DEAR object of my love, whose manly charms; With bliss ecstatick fill'd my circling arms 1 The bliss is past ; and nought for me remains, But dire reproach, and never pity'd pains. For ( nature baffling ev'ry art I try'd) My sister has my growing shame descry'd ; E'en she assails me with opprobrious name, When the prude's conscious she deserves the same : Her loose associate, sated from her flies, And vainly to seduce my virtue tries. True as a wife, I only want the name ; O haste and wed me, and preserve my fame. Unlike most modern matches ours shall be, From settlements, the lawyers fetters, free; I'll quit my all and be Content with thee. Then haste away and strike detraction dead ; The nuptial feast awaits you, and the bed : Nor fear the band that will endure for life, With me your loving and your faithful wife. POSTSCRIPT.

Answer to the Riddle in your Last Week's Paper. YE sisters nine my prayer attend, With speed to my assistance send Some aid, that I without a doubt, May find this puzzling riddle out. Oft had I try'd, nay try'd again, And with conjecture fill'd my brain, But yet no certain thing could find r On NOTHING cou'd I fix my mind- Should I attempt in verse to sing, The pleasures which attend the Spring; In vain I sit me down to write, For Nothing sure can I indite. If chance I meet the blooming maid, Whose matchless charms my heart betray'd: In vain I sighing plead my love, But Nothing will her pity move. Now should I ask if I am right, In thinking Nothing was the sprite ? The studious bard perhaps will say, Why, sure, you're Nothing in the way. But since I now have set my mind On this same Nothing in its kind ; I hope to find my answer right, « Or Nothing must my pains requite. FASCICULUS. Lincoln, May 9, 1785. The Amusement of YOUNG MEN.

ELiZA. SONG— By two Ballad- Singers, on Monday evening at the Masquerade. * I'VE here worn a mask for a twelvemonth or more, And have chang'd it as whim led the way : But whate'er was the form of the mask that I wore, My heart it was frolic and gay. The World is a great Masquerade, as I think, And our faces but masks to our mind ; So we laugh and we frown, and we ogle and wink, To conceal the false urchin behind. But our features and names we at present lay by, That ourselves as ourselves we may know ; ' Tis the moment of truth, come then, court us and try, If we like you, we will not say— no. Then fill up the measure with joy and delight, Give the imp in your bosoms fair play ! Let love and sinccrity govern the night, And hypocrisy come with the day. A Gentleman having purchased some land belong- ing to certain Townships in Ireland, attempted to make some improvements on them by way of inclo- fures, & c. but as the measure was unpopular among the Levellers of that Country, they, without leave or ceremony, took the liberty of demolishing his fenccs. Whereupon he inserted in the public Irish papers, the following droll, whimsical, and very humorous adver- tisement : " Whereas I Col. Thomas Crow have been truly informed, that several atrocious, audacious, nefarious, pestiferous, infamous, intrepid, night- walking, garden- robbing, immature peach- stealing, poaching rascals, all the spawn of thieves, and cubs of hell, do frequent- ly, villainously, and burglariously assemble themselves in my boats in the river Tullymore, there boating, piping, plunging, fighting, cursing, swearing, sab- bath- breaking, whoremongering, and duck- hunting, with many other shameful enormities and illicit acts, that the modesty of my pen cannot express. This is therefore to give you all notice, reptiles, scoundrels, raggamuffins, poltroons, whoremongers, adulterers, lank- jaw'd, herring- gutted Plebeians, That if you, or any of you, dare set foot in my boats, or any part of my property, I will send Myrmidons like Tritons, who shall assail you in the deep and plunge you in the great abyss called Aull's Hole. Then will I consign you to Charon, who shall ferry you over Styx, and deliver you to the archdevil Lucifer, at the place of his infer- nal caldron, there to be boiled in the fat bitumen of Vesuvius, to be dredged with the sulphur of Caucasus, and to be roasted eternally before the everburning embers of Etna. Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye, Darians, Delicarian. s, Capercurians, and Tullymorians, base- born scoundrels of whatsoever nation ye be, return me my bog- sticks, or by the Gods, the immortal Gods I swear, I will fend my man Jacob to Babylon for bloodhounds fiercer than tygers. With these, mounted on my famous horse Rattail, with my cutting sabre in my hand, I will hunt you through Europe, Asia, Afri- ca, and America, until I centre you in my new- found- land, where the Devil himself shall not find you. Then will I mount my Gazebo, and in the heighth of my wrath to the Gods will I declare what rascals ye have been. To the P' R I N T E R. AMONG the tribe of travellers and writers rela- tive to the natives of America, they uniformly agree that the Indians do all by memory only ; and that our mode of conveying information to absent friends by writing is to them incomprehensible ; but this is true only with respect to the natives of Africa ( a lower order, and a more ignorant race of men) for they say Beckera ( i. e. white man) make pen, and pen make paper talk! But it is otherwise with the native Indians of America ; for they have not only the art of writing among themselves, but in some measure sur- pass them, for they write to the understanding of men of all nations, while ours is confined to men of this or that particular country. You know, Sir, that be- fore I wandered among the more polished nations, my first foreign trip was to America, where walking in the woods, near the head of the River Savannah, at Georgia, I found tied to a tree a bit of bastard Cedar, on which, in a very uncouth manner, several figures were delineated. The first was the figure of a canoe, and under it were two rows ( one under the other) of lines or notches, thus— i I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I The next an Indian hut, under which were near forty notches; the third was the figure of a man laid down, and under him were eight notches ; fourthly were two men, one leading the other by a firing, and under the captive figure were four notches ; the fourth mark seemed to represent the tail of some Animal *, with two notches under it; and lastly, was the figure of a woman and a child, tied as the man above ; under the woman were three notches, and under the child thir- teen. You may be sure, ignorant as I then was, and still am, I knew that this tablet was not placed there without some meaning, and' therefore I brought it away with me, and it fortunately turned out to be my Horn Book ( for I never got much farther in the business) to learn the art of decyphering, as I soon discovercd by it, that the Upper Creek Indians had been upon a canoe expedition against their enemies;— that they went with ten canoes, and ten men in each ; that they had surprised an enemy's town, with near forty huts in it; that they had killed eight men, taken four pri- foners, and brought them away alive ; that they had scalped two men, and brought off three women and thirteen children. But after having hastily satisfied myself that I had read their letter, I began to suspect I had made too quick a conclufion ; and while I was re- considering the matter, I happened to turn to the other fide of the shingle, and there I found one man down, and two notches under him, which confirmed my first reading; for it showed that they had lost two of their party. And now, I will leave you and your readers to determine, whether the modern Indians in America are not as good Secretaries as the ancient Egyptians ; or whether any of our American Gene- rals, from General Gage, down to. General Disengage, ever sent us so fair, so concise, so clear, and so satis- factory a return of their killed, wounded, and prisoners, as this Indian Gazette Extraordinary, which I found tied to a Spruce- Pine tree, near the Apalachian moun- tains in America ; and which was left there, and pro- bably some in many other places, to inform the out- scouts of their nation of the success of their expedi- tion; nor should I, at that time, have been alarmed if they had found the tablet upon me. I could easily have drawn a tree, and a bit of wood tied to it, and their own eyes would have convinced them I was only A WANDERER. P. S. I intend soon, now that I have made you ac- quainted with the Indian Alphabet, to give you the hiftory of L— d N h's war in the language. Nay, don't be alarmed ; it shall also be comprised within the small compass of an American shingle. A shingle is what they cover houses with ; and with a shingle I will describe the whole war, from the destruction of the tea- chest in Boston- harbour, down to the destruction of the British Empire by L— d N h & Co. * A Scalp.

THIS MEDICINE is particularly efficacious in relieving all fudden and painful disorders of the Stomach and Bowels, whether caufed by irritation, in- digeftion, or excess; and is fo perfectly harmless in its nature, that whether the disorder be the effect of cold or inflammation, it may be used with the utmost fafety. It effectually corrects the Bile, and of course removes the numberless and grievous symptoms with which bilious Patients are afflicted ; and which gene- rally constitute the cases that are described under the various denominations of Nervous, Hysterical, and Hypochondriacal. This invaluable Cordial will restore the digestive faculties of the Stomach, whether it be relaxed by habitual intemperance, or enfeebled by natural infir- mity, and if taken when inconvenience is felt, either from occasional irregularity, or from the frequent, and sudden changes in the temperature of the air, to which English constitutions are peculiarly subject, it would reduce the catalogue of diseases, and make the use of any other Medicine unnecessary.
