The diet has or- dered the Chancellor of the Crown, and the Vice- Chancellor of Lithunia, to deliver to the Rus- sian Ambassador their answer to his note of June 19. In their answer delivered on the 23d ultimo, they say, that the dismemberment of Poland, is by no means looked upon by the States, as being an irrevokable alienation of the territory of the Republic; that the expressions contained in the above note, might be the result of some subaltern orders, but could not be the sentiments of the supreme will of the Empress; that the demand of a delegation for the purpose of authorizing and confirming the seizure of a part of the do- mains of the Republic cannot be considered but as a mere proposal; that it is far beyond the power of the diet, to act in diametrical opposi- tion to the solemn oath taken by it, to preserve the unity of all the possessions of the Republic,' ensured by treaties as well as the guarantee of the neighbouring powers; that determined not to accede to any agreement whatever on this sub- ject, the diet appeals to the magnanimity of her Imperial Majesty, as well as to that of the other neighbouring powers, not to insist on any pro. posals for a division ; that supposing the possibi- lity of the Republic consenting to any acts, con- trary to the above solemn oath, it should be ob served, that there exists no power whatever in the whole State, sufficient to authorize the least diminution of the domains of the Republic, and of course every tranfaction tending to such a di- minution, would bear the most striking character of illegality. On the same day, the two Chancellors commu- nicated to the Prussian Minister the same answer, which was prefaced by a remark— that the Prus- sian troops having entered the Polish territory on account of apprehensions which existed no longer, the diet trusted that his Prussian Majesty would order his troops to withdraw from such domini- ons of the Republic as they had occupied. The above answers were the same day com- municated in the name of the King and the States, to all the foreign Ministers. The majority of the diet having opposed the new Marshal Bielinsky's taking the oath pre- scribed by the Russian party, all the Members composing that majority have been put and kept under arrest in their own houses, till the new Marshal had taken that oath in the presence of a few disgraceful Members, disposed to con- sent to it. The King himself is not beyond the reach of constraint and punishmcnt. His treasurer has been ordered not to pay to this unfortunate Mo- narch any part of the revenues of the Crown, till further orders. The estates of the two Counts Miniszeck and Tysz- Kiewiez, Marshals of the Crown, and of Lithunia, are also sequestered by the Russians, because these two noblemen, charged to maintain good order in the diet, refused to comply with the intentions of the Ruffian Ambassador. This Ambassador has given it to be understood, that in case the opposition should persist in their refusal to satisfy the two Courts, the remaining provinces of Poland would likewise be occupied by their troops. There is even a report in circu- lation, that the Russian Generals have already re- ceived orders to enter the two palatinates of Cracow and Sendomir ; that corresponding or - ders have been sent to the Prussian General Mol- lendorff; and that the execution of those orders is only suspended till the arrival of another letter from Count Sievers. Constantinople, June 12. The late partition of Poland, as well as the Russians having taken pos- session of the important fortress of Kamienick, gives the Sublime Porte a deal of uneasiness, and these two events are here looked upon as signals of an impending rupture between our Court and that of Petersburg. M. de Vroslow, Charge d'Affaires from this Court, has not been able to obtain from the Divan a free passage for a Russian frigate of 34 guns, which, under the appearance of a merchantman, had passed from the White into the Black sea. The arrival of four French frigates in the bay of Smyrna, has caused the High Admiral to or- der a line of battle ship and two frigates to put immediately to sea, while a fleet is getting ready to make the neutrality adopted by the Grand Signior respected in the Archipelago. M. Descorches, Envoy ol the new French Republic, has obtained permission to stay here only in the quality of a merchant, and under the express condition that he is to abstain from all di- plomatic functions. His conduct is carefully watched by the Divan, and even his landlord is made answerable for all the disturBances, which may result from his stay in this capital. LONDON. View of politics for last week.— We feel a singu- lar satisfaction in being able to announce to the public, the surrender of Mentz, which took place 0n the 22d of this month. A garrison of 12,000 men, intrenched with strong fortifications, and with plenty of provisions and military stores, consented on that day, to march out with the honours of war, under an engagement not to serve for a year against any of the combined pow- ers. Important as this event is in itself, it be- comes doubly fo when we consider it as bearing upon the future operations of the campaign. The allied armies, amounting to at least 150,000 men, are now at liberty to act either jointly or seperately against the eastern frontier of France. After the short period shall have elapsed which it may be found necessary to allow for the refresh- ment of the combined armies, we doubt not that the operations of the Prussians and Austrians will be active and decisive. Combined with those of the forces now acting on the side of Valencien- nes, with the Spaniards and Sardinians— with the fleets in the Mediterranean and on the wes- tern coalls of France— and, above all, with the armies under the Generals Gaston and Wimpfen, who so successfully oppose the forces sent against them by the reigning faction at Paris; it appears extremely improbable that the events of the pre- sent campaign should not very considerably de- cide upon the war. We, therefore, look forward with confidence and satisfaction; and we hope ere long to congratulate our countrymen on the successful and honourable termination of a con- test into which we have been driven by the en- thusiastic madness of our opponents. From Valenciennes the accounts continue to be favourable ; and there is every reason to suppose that the siege of that fortress will speedily be con- cluded. The death of Marat, an event insignificant and contemptible in itself, has become of impor- tance from the superior eminence in villainy to which that demagogue had contrived to raise himself. The dagger of a zealot has removed from the French nation one of the wretches who disgraced its national character. We sincerely wish that many others of the same description did not yet remain. We do not apprehend be- ing charged with credulity or superstition, when we avow our persuasion that these persons will also, in their turns, suffer for their enormous crimes. The justice of Heaven has already reached many of them ; and it were impiety to suppose that a milder fate awaits those other wretches who have dared to shed the blood of their anointed King, to destroy the constitution of their country, and to deny the existence of their maker. It does not seem probable, that the death of Marat alone is sufficient to put an end to the enormities in France, The female whole hand has been used, manifestly as a tool for his extir pation, has already suffercd ; and decrees of ar rest and accusation are issued against Duperret and Fauchet, as her instigators. Oil the trial Of Marie Anne Charlotte Corde the assassin of Marat, she exhibited the greatest firmness. She denied having had any accomplice. " No one," said she, " instigated me to this good action ; and if all that preceded and all that followed the death of Marat be carefully examined, it will be clear that a soul truly re publican, like mine, could be actuated only by the genuine impulse of delivering my country from it's most dangerous enemy." Fauchet was examined, and the embarrassed air of the priest formed a striking contrast to the serenity of the prisoner. She denied that Fau- chet had ever introduced her into the gallery of the Convention. " I respect him too little," said she, " to act a favor of him; I knew him at Caen, as one knows a man that one meets In the streets." She delivered two letters to the Judges, which she requested might be forwarded as directed. One of them was addressed to Barbaroux, the other to her father. In the letter to Barbaroux, she gave an account of her journey to Paris, and the assassination of Marat; in the letter to her father, she requested him not to mourn or shed a tear for her death, which was an honor to him and all her family. It concludcd with this verse: Guilt makes shame, and not the scaffold. On the scaffold, she displayed the same firm- ness as on her trial, and refused the ministration of a confessor. Perhaps in no one historical period of any country there ever was such an unanimous coa- lition of sentiment as now prevails throughput Great Britain, against the present sacrilegious, murdering, and despotic Government of France — a Government that seeks the destruction of every man, woman, and child, who acknowledge a God, a supremacy to a King, and approve morality; and of every parent who possesses the feelings of nature for the offspring of their own loins— Here the fond mother, than the beasts more wild, From her disnatured breast shall tear her child j Flesh of her flesh, and of her bone the bone, And dash the smiling babe against a stone. Friday afternoon Mr. Mason, one of the King's messengers, arrived at Whitehall, with letters and dispatches from the head- quarters of his Royal Highness the Duke of York, dated the 23d instant. A battery of t6 guns in the third parallel, under the direction of Major Congreve, has done great execution in the town. In that part of it adjoining the horn- work, not a house is left standing ; nor have the besieged the smal- lest shelter, In a day or two after the departure of the messenger, the mines were to be sprung, from which a practicable breach was expected to ensue, and the town, it was supposed, was in consequence to be stormed. Madame Metiour's trumpeter, who came out with a flag of truce from Valenciennes, required the Prince of Cobourg's permission, not only for the lady to go to Paris, but also demanded that her carriage shouid have the privilege of passing unsearched: The latter being denied to her, she refused to accept of retiring from Valenciennes. Many of the officers of the combined army, taking advantage of the short cessation of firing, when Madame Metiour's of truce came out, jumped oven the parapet of the the French officers very handsomely ward to meet them on the glacis, and even in- vited some of the British officers into the covert- way : Lieutenant- Colonel Gascoyne, of the Coldstream, who was commanding officer of the covering party in the combined trenches, ac- cepted the invitation, and remained there until the trumpeter returned into the town, when he retired, on being told by the French officers that it would be unsafe for him to remain there any longer. At the above interview between the besiegers and the besieged, the French officers expressed great satisfaction at having the opportunity of speaking and shaking hands with the British offi- cers, and warmly expressed their hopes, that when the town surrendered, it would be put into the hands of the English. One of Custine's Aid- de- Camps had come over as a deserter with twenty men. When the Prussians entered Mayence, they found that the garrison had been for a consider- able time destitute of necessaries; and 1b much so of medicines, for the sick and wounded, that much the greater part of the latter, had died for want of proper care. For several days previous to the capitulation the carnage on both sides had been dreadful, the besiegers and the besieged being in many points within pistol shot, and the latter making constant and desperate sallies. The King of Prussia, it is now supposed, will divide his army into two bodies, the one under his own command, and the other under that of the Duke ot Brunswick, with a view of pene- trating into Alsace and Lorraine at the same time. A few hours after the surrender, the Prussian and the French soldiers were seen mingled in groups and dances in the most friendly and fami- liar manner. On the 18th the French assembled 40,000 men not far from Landau, thinking to relieve Mayence, by penetrating the Austrian and Prus- sian lines, which they attacked in three places, and at first gained some advantage over the Imperialists; but being at length brought be- tween two fires, by the manouvres of the Prus- sians, they were driven back with great loss. This probably hastened the capitulation of May- ence. The following Portuguese men of war arrived at Portsmouth on Wednesday last;— The Con- cesias of 82 gnns, Admiral Tentegat; Vascoda Gama, Raijn Eade Portugal, of 74 each ; Maria Premeria of 70; Ulysses 46; Tenis 48 ; Voader, Serpente, 24 guns each. intelligence has been received at Amsterdam from Java, in the East- Indies, that the Dutch Governor, M. Overstraaten, hearing of the ill- ness of Haming Coeboeang the first, King of the north coast of the island, prepared to go to his capital, with a body of troops, during which he was informed that the Sultan was really dead. However, continuing his route to the city of Jokja Carta, he was received with great ceremo- ny ; and having represented the death of the late King as a loss t0 the Company, and their attach- ment to his Government, on account of his fide- lity and attention to their affairs, he was witness to the nomination of his eldest son as his succes- sor and Sultan of the Mattarin kingdom, under the title of Haming Coebocana the IId. His father has left upwatds of 200 children and ne- phews behind him, and had been at peace with the Hollanders upwards of 35 years, Nepapatnam, taken from the Dutch in the last war, is to be exchanged, in consequence of a recent agreement, for Cochin, a settlement on the Malabar coast, neat Tellicherry. Several vessels, just arrived at Copenhagen from the East- Indies, have brought considerable quantities of sugar of the East- India culture. The last fleet of Dutch East- Indiamen is the richest which arrived in Holland for these 14 years. It is valued at upwards of 20 millions of florins. The commissioners, to relieve commerce by Exchequer bills, have issued no more than 2,075,0001. although it was originally said that the five millions appointed for that purpose, would be insufficient. It is observable, that at the last meeting 6o, oool. which had been received on application, were repaid. It is not believed that any further applications will be made to the Commissioners. Friday morning a man was apprehended by some of the Police officers belonging to the Pub- lic- office in Bow- street, on suspicion of being concerned with others in stealing five numbers out of one of the lottery- wheels, during the drawing of the last Irish lottery. He was com- mitted to Tothill- fields, Bridewill, till an order is received from the Secretary of State, for his removal to Ireland. Much has lately been said about spring garters — but a cause is now on the eve of coming into Doctor's Commons , respecting a pair of summer garters, which a noble Lord lately tied on, where the property belonged to a certain Baronet, well known in the fashionable world. Thursday Mr Crocket's grey mare trotted 100 miles in 12 hours, for a bet of 100 guineas to 30. She set off with her rider at four o'clock in the morning, and had 20 minutes to spare. The person that rode was so fatigued, from the intense heat, that for the last ten miles he was obliged to be held by two men on the saddle. the same day the great brewer of Hampton rode 100 miles in 12 hours. The bets were 30 guineas to 20, that he did not sit up besides all night, and drink three bottles of wine, which he performed with ease witiiin feven minutes of the time allotted. Friday morning, about five o'clock, as Mr Frampton, a superintendant of contract rope- makers at Portsmouth, was going down the Common Hand to a boat, he was met by his son- m- law, Mr. Edward Powel, master oar- maker, who demanded his wife, from whom he had been for some time separated, on account of domestic strife, and on being answered that he ( the father) knew not where she was, he fired a pistol at him, the ball of which entered his coat and penetrated through a New Testament, which fortunately was in his side pocket, when it dropt without doing Mr. Frampton any injury; finding the first shot, however ineffectual, he fired ano- ther, and the ball entered the poor man's body on the left side, a little below his hip. Mr. Framp- ton was immediately carried home, and is now under the care of Mr. Johnson, and other gen - tlemen of the faculty, with very small hopes of recovery. Powell, who had before shewn symp- toms of insanity, was secured by the peace offi- cers, and lodged in gaol. Mr. Frampton is since dead, and the Coro- ner's jury have returned their verdict against Powell, " Wilful murder, with malice aforethought!' OAKHAM NAVIGATION.

LONDON: Le Sans- Pareille East- Indiaman, prize to the Brilliant privateer, of Weymouth, is totally lost on the rocks off the Lizard; a small part of the The King of Prussia has written word to the Prince of Conde, " that the project of pene- trating into France, and marching to Paris, was now on the point of being executed ; and that his Majesty was happy in the opportunity that would be soon afforded him, of restoring that Prince to the possession of all his rights and pro- perty." Sunday Mr. Breton, the messenger, arrived in town from Ireland, with several bills which passed the Irish Parliament, for the purpose of receiving the Royal assent. He also brought dis- patches respecting the late outrages in that coun- try. The peasantry meditate the destruction of Bray, a romantic village near Dublin, they have set fire to the town of Charleville between Cork and Limerick and threaten a descent on the town of Wicklow. Government have ordered a number of trans ports to be got ready, and sheathed in the greatest haste, which shews they are meant for foreign serVice. It is supposed they are intended to carry out more troops to the West- Indies, where our Government probably looks for the indemnifica tion of their charge in this war, by laying hold of and appropriating to this country, the chief settlements which belong to France in that part of the World. The capture of Mentz will now leave the King of Prussia and the Duke ot Brunswick at full liberty to take other measures for distressing the common enemy ; and with so fine an army under them, hardened by the operations of the siege, and amounting to near an hundred and fifty thousand men, what may not be expected ? The capture of Mentz also dispossesses the French of a strong hold, of most material con- cern to their designs upon the empire ; and as by their repulse at Willemstadt, they were driven out of Holland, their expulsion now again from Mentz, will fairly rid Germany of those ma- rauders. Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia has been wounded by grape shot in the hip. His Royal Highness was immediately conveyed from the neighbourhood of Mayence, where this accident happened, to Manheim, where he is to remain until his recovery. Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia had a hair breadth escape, a few minutes before he was wounded a Frenchman levelled his musket at him so near, and with so good an aim that the cargo saved. The French East Indiaman San Jean de Leon, prize to the Surprize privateer, is safe arrived at moorings off Deptford yard. Her cargo is rated at 410,0001. sterling, of which goods to the amount of 85,000l are claimed by Messrs. Con- stable and co. of New- York, in America, and one of fhe partners of whose house was on board her when captured ; also goods to the amount of 15,000l. are claimed by a house at Genera. The rest will be the property of the captors. Extract of a letter from an officer in ihe navy, to a friend in Glocestershire. " DEAR S. " The following anecdote I think deserves to be recorded, let it belong to enemy or friend, and for the truth of which I can vouch : " Capt. Moulon, who commanded the Cleo- patra, fought the Nymphe with the greatest bra. very; and though with the vanity of an English- man, I have no doubt she would have been taken at all events; yet certainly the wheel of her tiller, and mizen- mast being shot away, accelerated it much. Her brave commander, no doubt, was determined never to surrender; for in his coat- pocket he kept the private signals of the whole French coast, which of all others an enemy wishes to get possession of and which, during the whole of the late war, the French ships threw over- board when coming to action. This Captain Moulon would not do; but kept them about him in case of accidents.— He was by a large shot cut almost in two, and in the midst of the agonizing torture of his wounds he took from his pocket a paper, which he thought was the private signals, and died, tearing it in pieces with his teeth.— What astonishing resolution and recollection ( with his back torn half off), to remember how great might be the disadvantage to his country, should the enemy be in possession of their private coast regiment. He Is supposed to have laboured under a mental derangement, brought on by those twe formidable foes, pride and poverty.-.

The colours of the Emigrant regiments were consecrated on the 21st. The ceremony was thus: the 37th regiment was drawn up by their Colonel Sir C. Ross. The Emigrant corps then marched in, and were addressed by their Colonel, M. de la Chatre. The colours were then brought; they were sprinkled with holy water, and after a short speech from the Aumonier of the regiment, and the Colonel, they were re- viewed by General Ainslie. The two corps then, as usual divided the town duty. The colours are those of England; the uni- form, the pay, & c. the same as the 37th regi- ment. Charrier, one of the chiefs of the Royalists, 0n the eve of suffering death by the guillotine, promised to discover the cause of the troubles which agitate the southern departments, and to make known the key of the correspondence which Monsieur and the Count d'Artois still carry on in France, by means of numerical figures. He also offered to print out the only remedy now left to be taken to save that country. He offered to do all this 0n condition that life be granted him. The ground occupied by Custine, between Bouehain and Cambray, includes the whole of Caesar's camp in that neighbourhood, which is in greater preservation, considering its extent, than any other which he has left. The ditches, in some places, were so perfect two years since, that, in the opinion of military men, a thou- sand men might completely restore them in three days. At the conclusion of the last campaign, this post was surveyed by M. Dumourier, who pro- nounced it camp impregnable. General Custine is a prisoner in the Abbaye prison at Paris. The immortal Sir Philip Sidney was once elected King of Poland, but refused that crown, which may be literally said to be a crown of thorns Nothing astonishes the Austrian officers, used to all the stiffness of their Court, more than the Duke of York's free and easy manner of acting and conversing with the gentlemen who have the honour of serving under his Royal Highness.— An Austrian subaltern said the other day, as he saw the Duke walking arm in arm with a young officer of a marching regiment—" All the English are Lords, or the King's son would keep them at a distance." The Austrians are very unpolite, ex- cept those who have been within the precincts of the Court; as for those who have, their polite- ness is truly ridiculous— there is nothing more usual than to see them bent for two minutes, while in less than two seconds the most courtly bow can be made. The Prince does not seem pleased when he sees Irish officers in the Austrian service— he always speaks German to them ! General Dalton, how- ever, is an exception to the rule; his Royal Highness pays him very great attention. These are letters in town brought by the last ships from India, of a very serious import. They state, that Tippoo Saib had made fresh objections to complying with the obligations of the treaty, and peremptorily refused to make the last pay- ment. In consequence it was generally under- stood, that Lord Cornwallis's departure from India would be delayed, under the apprehension that hostilities might be renewed. Scindiah has come to Poonahy and demanded of Tippoo part of the money, which by the treaty of peace he was to pay to the Mahrattas. In consequence of this demand Tippoo alledges, that he cannot pay any more, till it be ascertained to whom it is that he ought to pay.

Soon after she fired two guns from the quarter- deck, both shhtted. The first ball struck the water several times, and then lodged in the cliff; but the second gun being more elevated, the ball came over the ancient priory and castle of Tyne- mouth, above the whole of that delightful village, and fell in the garden of Mrs. Baker, at the well end of the village, and was taken up by her gar- dener within 40 yards of the south front of the residence of that lady. It is a six- pounder, and now in her possession. The danger arising from the firing of guns on ship- board, when near the shore, or in harbour, has bean often pointed out, yet the practice continues, from the carelessness of masters and commanders of ships; and in the present instance, it is very fortunate no one was hurt, as at that time several people were walking within the precincts of the old castle, and in the streets of Tynemouth. A cause was last week determined in the Court of Common Pleas, of importance to traders.— It was against a person for giving a false character in behalf of another, who by that means ob tained credit for goods, which he otherwise could not have done. The jury found a verdict for the plaintiff, and the Judge observed, if a man wil- fully gave a tradesman a false character, he was liable to action for damages. Case of a legatee.— A testatrix in her last will left a legacy of 500l. to John the eldest son. At the death of the testratrix, and when the will began to operate, John the eldest son was dead. There- had been a second son of the name of George, who was also dead, and there was a third son of the name of John, and who was the only surviving son.— The Lord Chancellor held, that John was entitled to the legacy, being the eldest son living. When a legacy was left to a person OF a particular description, whoever answered to that description was entitled to the legacy. A distinguished neighbouring lady, married to the heir of a Dukedom, is said to have eloped on Wednesday last from Grey's, the jewellers, in Bond- street, with the Hon. Mr. B. son of Lord L. of the kingdom of Ireland, for whom she entertained a penchant before her matrimonial alliance.— Articles of separation between the parties were in great forwardness previous to the above event. Tuesday morning a dangerous and alarming accident occurred in the shop of Mr. John Law- son, grocer, in Dumfries. A young man having gone into the shop to purchase some gunpowder, thoughtlessly snapped a pistol over a drawer, containing about six pounds of that article, and which the shop apprentice was then shewing him. The powder in it instantly took fire, and blew up with a terrible explosion : By which cir- cumstance the glass in the windows was shat- tered to pieces, the floor of the lodging above raised some inches, the front door shut to, and the back one forced open. The two young men were dreadfully burnt. Several articles of earth- enware in the adjoining houses were broken by the shock. The frequency of accidents occa- sioned by gunpowder, ought to make people particularly cautious how they use that article; for, by the most trifling neglect, very fataj con- sequences may ensue. On Wednesday evening, Thomas Johnson, the bruiser, was detected picking a gentleman's pocket of a 30I. note, on the Chelmsford race- ground. He was conveyed to Chelmsford in a cart, examined, and committed to gaol to take his trial at the next assizes, Tuesday a man, for a wager of a guinea, fixed himself by his hands and knees to the hind wheel of an hackney coach, and in that situation was' driven round Covent- garden, the horses moving something faster than a walk. He performed the task, and won the wager; but his face was black, and he appeared exceedingly distressed.— The novelty of the scene drew together an im- mense concourse of people. Dublin, July 23. Last night we hear that an express arrived from Limerick with the following intelligence— that late on Saturday night, a mob' of 7 or 8000 attacked that city, and attempted to burn it— that the army, militia, and the citi- zens, were obliged to join to repel these daring offenders, and to bring the artillery into the streets, and that after a severe and obstinate resist- ance, the insurgents were dispersed with the loss of 140 killed, and several wounded.

Captain Calvert, of the Coldstream regiment of guards, aid de camp to his Royal Highness the Duke of York, arrived his morning with dispatches from Colonel Sir James Murray, Bart. Adjutant General to the forces under his Royal Highness's command, to the Right Honourable Henry Dundas, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, of which the following are copies. Estreux, July 26, 1793 SIR, I am happy to have the honour of informing you, that last night not only the attacks of the covered way of the horn- work, and of the ad- vanced fleche by St. Sauve, were attended with success, but that possession has been obtained of the horn- work itself in which the troops now completely established. Three attacks were formed; one upon the sali- ant angle of the raveline of the horn- work, one upon the saliant angle of the half bastion upon the right, and one upon the fleche. Nine hun- dred men were destined for each attack. In each of the two first an advanced guard was formed of 150 men, followed by 300, with the necessary Workmen and miners, supported by the rest of the column. The troops employed 0n attack upon the right were divided into thre parts, one of which turned the fleche to the right, another to the left, and the third advanced in front. The column destined for the attack of the saliant angle of the ravelin was composed of British, Hanoverian and Hessian troops, the other two of Austrians. One hundred and fifty men of the brigade of guards, under the com mand of Colonel Leigh, formed the advanced party. - They were followed by 150 men of the brigade of the line, with an equal number of Hanoverians, commanded by Lieutenant- Colo- nel Doyle; 150 Hanoverians and 300 Hessians composed the rest of the column. Colonel Lan- gerke of the Hessians, and Lieutenant- Colonel Offney of the Hanoverians, commanded these troops. A detachment of the company of artifi. cers, under Captain Sutherland, accompanied this column, and performed the duty allotted to them with great activity and resolution. This attack was commanded by Major- General Aber- cromby. The Austrian Lieutenant- General Erbach commanded the whole. The springing of the globes of compression was the signal for the attack. Of these they were three; one towards the saliant angle of the ravelin ; one towards that of the half bastion upon the right s and one betwixt these two, They were sprung at short intervals from one Another; the first at nine o'clock. The two columns upon the left advanced with the utmost alacrity, rush- ing out from the sap, which had been carried the preceding nights to within a very small distance of the crest of the Glacis. The enemy were al- most instantaneously diiven from the covered way. They abandoned the horn- work, and, as' it afterwards appeared, all the out- works of the place. The miners descended into the ditch, and got possession of those of the enemy's mines which had escaped the effects of the globes de compression. These were found loaded, and several of the miners were taken. One fougas- was sprung, bur happily without occasioning any loss. The horn- work was entered by the gorge. The probability of this had been foreseen ; but it was reckoned useless to attempt a lodgment, for want of proper communications ; and indeed nearly impossible to effect it. The original orders given in this case were, therefore, to spike the guns, and retire. A passage being however dis- covered, which went under ground from the ditch into the work, and no enemy appearing in the counter- garde, which immediately overlooks it, to interrupt the workmen, it was determined by his Royal Highness to take the advantage of the moment. The lodgment was made before day light, and the troops are now, I apprehend, in perfect security. This is of the greater con- sequence as the horn- work is found to be strongly mined, and it must, therefore, in the common line of operations, have required a considerable time, and occasioned loss of men in course, to have gained possession of it. Measures are tak- ing, with all possible expedition, to profit of this success, by erecting a battery, for the purpose of battering in breach the counter- garde, which is between the horn- work and the body of the place.' His Royal Highness has expressed himself to be highly pleased with the gallantry and good conduct of Major- General Abercromby, Colonel Leigh, and. Lieutenant- Colonel Doyle, as well as with that which was shewn by Colonel Lan- gerke and' Lieutenant- Colonel Offney. The conduct of the other officers, and that of the troops in general, as well in regard to their dis- cipline, and the order which they preserved as to the gallantry of their behaviour, merits every commendation. Lieutenant- Colonel Count Di- etrickstein, Captains Count Offandini and Thi- angie, of the Austrian corps of engineers, were attached to the left column, and their conduct is spoken of by Major General Abercromby in terms of the strongest approbation. The attack of the fleche upon the right was carried on with equal vigour and success: Seve ral of the enemy were killed, and twelve taken in the work. Small parties made their way into the main ditch. The Croatz, upon the side of Mont Anzin and St. Sauve, carried several. detached works killed about 50 of the enemy, and took 30 priso- ners. Major de Drieberg, Commandant of the fe cond battalion of Hanoverian grenadiers, ad vanced with a detachment from Briquet to the crest of the glacis upon that side, where he re mained till day- break, kept up a fire upon the works, and made a useful diversion. The totai loss of the combined troops upon this important occasion does not exceed 150 men and officers killed and wounded inclose the return of the British. The Hanoverians had one man killed and six wounded ; the Hessians nine. His Royal Highness regrets the loss of brave officer in ensign Tollemache, who was killed by a shell in the third parallel. I inclose the copies of the summons sent by his Royal Highness this morning, to the town with the letters which have afterwards passed These give a reasonable ground for hope, that the siege will not be of much longer continuance Ja. Murry, Adjutant General. [ Here come the summons and letters between the Duke of York and General Ferrand, com- mander of Valenciennes, and the municipality ot that, place, with their answers; and also the articles of capitulation, by which the garrison are allowed ta march out with the hononrs of war, engaging not to serve during the whole course of the present war against the armies of his Majesty the Emperor, and of his allies, with- out having been exchanged conformably to the cartels, under pain of military punishment — The personal property of the officers, soldiers, and inhabitants, are permitted to remain in the possession of the besieged, and may be conveyed away at their expence; but all artillery, warlike stores, provisions, & c. are to become the pro- perty of the captors. The governor requested that the currency of assignats might continue, which was refused. Estreux, July 2, 1793. SIR, It is with the utmost satisfaction that I have the honor of acquainting you with the surrender of the town and citadel of Valenciennes to the combined army under the command of his Royal Highness the Duke of York. The successful attack of the 25th, and the lodgement in the horn- work, seem to have made a strong impression upon the enemy, and to have disposed them to receive in a favorable manner the summons which was sent by his Royal Highness to the General and inhabitants upon the following day The alacrity with which the troops have under- gone the hardships and severe duty of the siege, as well as the resolution which they displayed in situations of danger, deserve the highest praise. Batteries Were allotted at different times to be worked by the Royal artillery, and every com- mendation is due to Major Congreve, and to the officers find men of that corps, who have upon this occasion, fully supported the reputation which they have so long enjoyed. Though Colonel Moncrieff was not charged with the direction of the siege, the greatest ad- vantages have been derived from his professional knowledge, activity, and zeal, particularly in taking and keeping possession of the horn- work. I inclose a return of the loss of the British and Hanoverian troops during the whole of the siege, by which it appears that the number of the killed and wounded of the former, as it stands at this moment, amounts to 90, including all ranks.— Supposing the latter to have had slight wounds in the same proportion, the loss at present will be about 150. » The most dangerous, as well as the most labo- rious parts of the siege, fell to the lot of the Im- perial forces. They have had about 1300 officers and men killed and wounded ; from which, how- ever, the same deduction may be made. Any further particulars, which yor may be desirous to be informed of, will be explained by Captain Calvert, Aide de Camp to his Royal Highness, who was employed in carrying 0n the intercourse relative to the capitulation of the town, and whose zeal and intelligence upon this, as well as upon many former occasions, have been highly approved of by his Royal Highness. I have the honor to be, See. J. A. MURRAY. Return of killed and wounded of the British troops, under the command of his Royal Highness the Duke of York, at the siege of Valenciennes.

The Duke of York, as it was confidently re- ported yesterday morning, very narrowly escaped being blown up by the springing of the mines. The immediate consequence of the capture of Valenciennes, will be the siege of Cambray. The only towns of importance between Va- lenciennes and Paris ( a distance of about 14O miles), are Cambray, Peronne, and Senlis; all strong places: Before, however, the combined armies can reach the last place, they must cross the river Oise. The French fleet, to the amount of 17 sail of the line, we learn, from the best advices, to be in Quiberon bay.— Lord Howe's object doubtless will be to intercept their getting into Brest, and to attack them wherever he may find them. It was currently reported at Lloyd's yesterday that Guadaloupe was taken. No official account of this kind had reached, the Admiralty office, By the Sophia, . Smith, arrived at Greenock in 37 days from Anguilla, we learn that the fleet had sailed three days before that vessel. The master reports, that certain advices had been re- ceived, that the island of Martinique had wholly surrendered to Admiral Gardner, fort Bourbon only excepted. Fort Bourbon, which serves as a kind citadel to Port Royal and commands the harbour can not, it is said, be taken before the winter sets in Our fleet must therefore, during the monsoon months, go to Antigua, while the fort is block- aded by land ; so that the garrison may not make any attacks on the inhabitants of- the island. General Kellerman is appointed Commander in Chief of the armies in the north and the Ar- dennes. Kellerman was lately a prisoner at Paris — so that him and Custine have literally changed situations. reigners for our woollens.- He said his situation as commissioner for the office of Exchequer bills, ave him an opportunity of knowing, and he mentioned it with great pleasure, that the diffi- culties in respect to money transactions, were diminishing very much daily, and he flattered himself that in a short time they would in a great measure cease, and he had no doubt that a brisk trade would soon take place, and consequently all articles find their due value. On Saturday afternoon, a most audacious rob- bery was committed in St. Bartholomew- street, in Birmingham. About four o'clock, a man opened the street door of the house of Mr. Lowe, exciseman, and before Mrs. Lowe, who was sit- ting with her back to the door, could turn round, he seized her, covered her face with a handker- chief, and then carried her up stairs, where, upon her screaming out, he gagged her, and blindfolding her with her apron, tied her to the bed post, and threatened to murder her if she was not pcrfectly quiet. The villain was soon joined by three or four accomplices, one of whom, by her voice, appeared to Mrs. Lowe to be a woman ; they broke open the boxes, and took from one of them 40I. in cash ; turned Mrs. Lowe's pockets inside out, took what money was in them, and endeavoured, but in vain, to draw the ring off her finger — they afterwards rifled every room, and carried off various articles of wearing apparel, linen, silver spoons, & c. Upon leaving the house, they had contrived to fasten both the front and back doors ; and Mr. Lowe upon coming from his office about six o'clock, was obliged to get in at the cellar window, when he released his poor wife, who was almost dead with fright.— This most singular and daring robbery was Committed at a time of day, and in a street along which persons are perpetually pas- sing, many of the neighbours must have been at their doors, and the shops opposite the house were filled with workmen ; and yet it does not appear the villains were either noticed, or in any way alarmed. The 40I. we are sorry to add, was the property of Mr. Lowe's aged father, who about a week ago had come from Bristol, with this sole and hard earned saving of a laborious life, to end his days with his son. SUMMER ASSIZES. ' At Buckingham, a verdict of 1ool, was given against. a grazier, for speaking maliciously of the credit and character of a butcher. At Exeter, William Robert, of North- Bovey for speaking treasonable and seditious words, is sentenced to be imprisoncd in the common gaol for one year, during which time he is to stand in the pillory at Moretonhampstead thrice ; and at the expiration of his imprisonment, to find secu- rity for his good behaviour for two years, him- self in 5ol. and two sureties in 25I. each. The Rev. Mr. Winterbottom has been tried at Exeter, and found guilty; he was indicted for preaching a seditious sermon 011 the 6th of last November, reflecting on his Majesty, and the Government of this country. The trial lasted 11 hours. At Leicester, Thos. Thorman, charged with sheep stealing, was found guilty, and received sentence of death ; Edward Linnet, for stealing some yarn, the property of Mr. Shepherd, of Harborough, was sentenced to be imprisoned three months, and fined is.— Thos. Crane, was convicted of stealing a quantity of wheat flour and ordered to be confined to hard labour in tiie house of correction for six months. For the borough of Leicester, came on the trial of Joseph Bland and John Edgson, for wan tonly and maliciously destroying the trees pLanted on a new walk near the town of Leicester.— The prosecutors, from motives of humanity, de clined giving evidence, the Judge having stated the offence to be capital under the black act. Mr Baron Hotham, after informing the prisoners of the atrocious nature of the offence, and the se vere punishment which they must have suffered had the prosecutors proceeded upon their indict ment, advised them to enter into his Majesty's service, and informed them that the indict ment upon the black act would still hang over their heads, as a security for their future good behaviour. At Thetford, two prisoners were capitally convicted and received sentence of death, viz Wm. Spark, for robbing Sarah and Richard Spalding, on the highway between Scole and Billingford ; and Wm. Frost, for stealing a box containing a quantity of lace, & c. from Mrs Edwards, of St. Martin's at Palace; but before the Judges left the city they were both reprieved _ Leath versus Buck, clerk, for a trespass, in cut- ting flag, and inclosing a small part of Fransham Common, which he annexed to his garden.— Verdict for the plaintiff 1s. damages. The business for the gentlemen of the long robe has this year been much less than it has been during many preceding years; and it is a plea- sure to observe, that the number of criminal causes is so very materially reduced.

On Wednesday evening a great number of per sons assembled in the market- place, Nottingham excited by a general murmur, occasioned by the meeting of several people in the fields, and there exercising themselves in military manoeuvres when, after parading the town with many loyal huzzas, and intimitations of their disapprobation of such proceedings, proceeded to acts of vio lence. The windows of several who were deemed disaffected to Government were entirely demolished, especielly the Mayor's, from whence some shots were fired, and we are sorry to add, five were wounded, one of whom died the next morning, and another lies without hopes of re covery.— A meeting was held at the Change hall, and proper methods were adopted for the re- establishment of order and tranquillity, which had the desired effect. An addiional number oi constables were made, aud perfect harmony now exists throughout the town.

LINCOLN, AUG. 1. Capt. Richard Gardiner, on the half- pay of the late independent companies, is appointed to be Adjutant of the Royal North Lincolnshire regiment of militia, vice James Bromhead, Esq who resigns. A few days ago died at Beverley, in the 62d year of his age, George Motherby, M. D, late of Highgate, near London. Lately died, Mr. Edward Parson, of Great Warford, near Knutsford, in Cheshire, at the very advanced age of 93 years. He retained his faculties to the last. He was twice married His first wife lived with him 60 years, and at the age of 80 he married a young woman of 21, who died in child bed of her third child at the age of 31. At fifteen his life was inserted in the lease of a large farm, which he held by that tenure until his death, being 78 years. A lady died lately in Westmorland, after painful and complicated illness of six years,- whole extreme sufferings were only aleviated by bleeding; an operation which was performed upon her 208 times. The market for fat stock was held here yester- day, for the first time, and a fine shew ot beasts and sheep was offered for sale. The buyers were fo numerous, that nearly all the cattle brought to market were sold in a few hours, at good prices.— This market bids fair to be of great pub- lic utility. A family party.-— A. widow lady, her son, and three daughters, of Macclesfield, in the Course of a week, entered the holy state. There are at this time in Lancaster castle, not less than 123 prisoners for debt; of whom 105 are married persons, having 411 children born in wedlock. On Saturday se'nnight, Benjamin Booth, one of the New Patriotic Society, was tried at Man- chester quarter sessions, upon an indictment for seditious words, viz. " for damning the King, " and saying " I would guillotine him if I " could." After a long and patient trial of five hours he was found guilty, and sentenced to be imprisoned twelve months in Lancaster gaol. An explosion happened in a coal- pit near Wigan, in Lancashire, on Monday se'nnight, from foul air being fired by a candle. We are sorry to add, that five men fell victims to the ac- cident, and a sixth is scarcely expected to recover. The want of proper precaution, was, we believe, the cause of this melancholy event; as there are simple methods to prevent those fatal effects, ' tis a pity they are not, on every occasion, strictly at- tended to. The vessels belonging to Hull and other ports, which sailed with convoy from Spithead the 22d May, for the Mediterranean, were expected to sail from Gibraltar the 26th ult. under convoy of a division of Lord Hood's fleet. His Majesty's sloop of war, the Lord Mul- grave, commanded by Capt. Maxwell, arrived in Hull roads last week ; where she is to be stationed some time. On Tuesday se'nnight arrived at Hull from the Greenland seas, the Ranger, Newham with 155 butts oil and blubber, the produce of 3 whales and 14 seals; on Friday, the Diana, Jubb, with 170 butts oil and blubber, 3 tons whale fins and 19 seal skins, being the produce of 4 whales and 19 seals; on Saturday, the Truelove, Wil- son, with 150 butts oil and blubber, 3 tons whale fins, 5 seal skins, being the produce of 3 whales and five seals; the Samuel, Mugg, with 80 butts oil and blubber, if. tons whale fins, being the produce of 2 whales, and 26 seals; the Enterprize, Rose, with 156 butts oil and blub- ber, two tons whale fins, and 16 seal skins, be- ing the produce of 3 whales and 16 seals ; the Gibraltar, Wray, with 105 butts oil and blubber, if tons whale fins and 5 seal skins, being the produce of 4 whales and 5 seals; the Fanny, The Rev. C. Blackham, chief Master of the grammar school at Walsall, was lately presented by J. Gough, Esq. to the living ot Wednesfield, vacant by the death of the Rev. Mr. Jones, of Bushbury. , Friday last Mr. J. R. Scarse, of Lynn, was married to Miss Brooks, daughter of Mr. Brooks, wheelwright, of the same place. A few days since a genteel well dressed young man, with a lady, attended by a black servant, arrived at the Norfolk arms inn, Arundel, where he soon found means so far to ingratiate himself with a gentleman of that town, as to procure the loan of 25o pounds, with which he shortly after decamped, and has not since been heard of. He assumed the title of Earl of Rutlandshire! After six hours examination on Monday last at Bristol, Mess. John and Samuel Ford, of Bath, machine- makers, bankrupts, were committed to Newgate by the commissioners, for not giving a satisfactory account of their property. A swarm of bees a few days since stung to death a cow and a young calf, in the neighbour, hood of Southall. The cries of the poor animals produced the assistance of some boys, one of whom endeavouring to relieve them, was stung in a dreadful manner. On the 15th instant a bullock, belonging to Mr. Chinery of Welnetham, which was bitten by a mad dog about eighteen months ago ( at the same time with those of Mr. Green, of Brad- field), died in the most raving state of the hydro- phobia. On Saturday morning last, between seven and eight o clock, a dreadful accident took place at Costessey mills, near Norwich, which occasioned the immediate death of Isaac Tubby, of the same place, an honest, industrious man, who, we are sorry to add, has left a disconsolate widow and five small children to lament his loss — We are requested to relate the following particular ot this melancholy event, earnestly wishing they may serve as a caution to the thoughtless, or ob- stinate, who are engaged in similar situations.— The deceased was employed on the lower floor of the mill, in sending wheat to the top, by means of the sack tackle, and had just sent the last sack up, when he imprudently went under RUN AWAY. ON Wednesday, July 31, 1793, THOMAS BRAVENDER, an Apprentice to WILLIAM BRANSTON, of Exton, Rutland. He is about Eighteen Years of Age;— had on, when he went away, a dark Coat, drab Waistcoat, a Pair of Leather Breeches, and round Hat. Also at the same Time RUN AWAY, JOHN BRA- ' VENDER, Brother to the above, an Apprentice to ROBERT TYLER, Farmer, of the fame Parish. is about Fourteen Years of Age; had on, when he went away, a Cotton Drab Frock and Waistcoat, a Pair of Thickset Breeches;— has a scald Head. Whoever harbours or employs the said Appren- tices, will be prosecuted. BINBROOK, near LOUTH, LINCOLNSHIRE. HOUNDS to be SOLD.

( By Order of the Assignees under a Commission of Bankrupt, against CHRISTOPHER DEIGHTON, of Gainsburgh in the County of Lincoln, Druggist and Brandy Merchant, at the black- moor's head Inn, in Gainsburgh aforesaid, on THURSdAy the 29th Day of August next, between the Hours of Four and Six of the Clock in the afternoon ( sub- ject to such Conditions of Sale at shall be then and there produced Taylor e v , with 1 30 butts oi) and blubber, tons the well- hole, before the man at the top had struck it out, to tell him it was all — Unfortunately the first endeavour to strike the sack did not succeed, and before a second effort could be made for that purpose, it was carricd with such force against the sack- pulley at the top, that the chain broke, and the sack fell from the height of more than 30 feet upon the poor man below, at the very in stant he had uttered the words, " that's all." A man who was just by, hearing the sack fall, turned about to lift it up, and to his utter sur- prize and terror discovcred the deceased beneath it, without the least sign of life, in a situation truly shocking to behold.— It is remarkable that he had never experienced an hours illness of any kind.— He had been repeatedly cautioned by his fellow servants of the danger of the situation in which he met his awful fate.— He had been even dragged from it, not unfrequently, by force; but all was to no purpose.— If such a dreadful example does not deter others from thus ventur- ing 0n the verge of destruction, without the least occasion to do so, it is to be feared nothing will, and they must take the consequences of their own temerity. Oxford, July 27 On Thursday came on the election at Magdalen college, when George Smith Gibbs, A. B. of Exeter; John Stanton A. B. of Magdalen; and the Rev. John Corby Cockle, A. B. ( both Demies of the samc college) were chosen Fellows.

On Tuesday last Mr. Charles Powell, Com- moner of Jesus college, was elected Scholar of that society. A few days since died, the Rev. Mr. Morris, Rector of Clayton cum Keymer, in the county of Sussex, and formerly Fellow of Brazenose college. The living is in the gift of the Princi pal and Scholars of that society. Stamford, Friday, August 2. Extract of a letter from an officer to his correspondent in this place. . The camp before Valenciennes, friday, July 26, 1793. " At nine o'clock three of our mine's were sprung which had a tremendous effect upon the enemy's works, and blew up a great number of their men; immediately a strong detachment sallied from our trenches, and took possession of the enemy's batteries' for a considerable extent to the right of the tower, driving the. French before them from all their posts, and killing numbers of them.— The detachment . for this purpose frOm the guards and the 53d regiment, were under the command of Gen. Abercrombie, besides Au- strians, & c.. and I am happy to say the whole Was effected with a trifling loss on our part.— Thus, we have gained their strongest post that fac'd our trenches and we are in great hopes a surrender will be the immediate consequence, as the Duke of York sent a fresh summons this morning into Valenciennes for the last time, and General Ferrand ( the Governor) requested time to consult with the Municipality about it, and Capt. Calvert ( the Duke's Aide de Camp) is gone to Valenciennes to know their final deter- mination, so that before this letter is sent off, I may be able to tell you what the answer is for we have not the least doubt but they will capitu- late rather than through a blind obstinacy, suffer their town to be entirely ruined, exclusive of all the other consequences; and what may still farther induce them to surrender, are the two circumstances of Mayence being taken, which is a place of consequence ; and Custine being denounc'd and thrown into prison by the National Convention ; therefore no assistance can be expected from that army to relieve this garri- son :— In short, the sun of French Democracy is setting very fast, and I may venture to prO- nounce never to rise again— In the business of last night the enemy lost a considerable quantity of cannon; and, fortunately for us, one of their - mines was discovered ready charg'd, and lighted matches near the fuze, which would have blown up a sixteen gun battery of our's, and have done infinite mischief.— Thank God it is now render- ed useless to the enemy. " I rather think the Commissioners from the National Assembly, that are now in Valencien- nes, are puzzled to know what to do; as they have a confounded practice in France, of hang- ing up or imprisoning unsuccessful commanders, tho' in common justice to the garrison of Valen; ciennes, they have behav'd well, notwithstand- ing the rascality of their cause, which they will daily have more and more reason to repent of; and it is not all the violent determinations they can came to that can in the end either save the town or themselves, as they have nothing but their citadel to retire to, and that cannot make a long stand. If any thing material happens in our fa- vour betwixt this and Tuesday, his Royal High- ness will immediately send an express to England, and I most sincerely hope he will have occasion to send the agreeable news before the next regu- lar packet day, in which case, you will have it in the Gazette extraordinary before you can get another letter from me ; what joyful news will it be, as the conquest will be of the utmost im- portance. I have just been reading orders, and the Duke of York returns his thanks to Major General Abercrombie, the field officers, officers, and soldiers, for their gallant behaviour." We have infinite pleasure in fulfilling the pro- phecy of the above able officer, in presenting the Gazette Extraordinary to our readers. It is highly honourable to the British nation that the garrison would not surrender but to their arms, a fact We are well warranted in delivering. The bells at the churches in this place, rang yesterday in honour of the victory, and we doubt not but every true englishman, will rejoice in reading the account of a conquest so very important to their country. ' Another private letter we have been favoured with the contents of says, " that the inhabitants of Valenciennes were so pleafed to see their con- querors, that they sent a note to the Duke of York, saying they believed there were a sufficient number of performers left alive in the place to represent a play, and begged his Royal highness would bespeak one ; he did, Richard Couer de Lion, and Attended with the officers, & c. forming a crowded audience. The garrison at the commence- ment of the siege consisted of near 10,000 men; they were reduced by sickness and war, to 4060, near 1030 of which were killed when the place was stormed. Tuesday died at Gainsborough, Mr. Robert Twelve, aged upwards of 80 years. He for- merly kept the White- Hart inn, in that town. The Rutlandshire militia are marched into Dover, in the room of the Wiltshire, who are gone to Folkstone, Hythe, Romney, Dungeness, and Winchilsea. , Tuesday last, Ann, the wife of William Bil- ling, of Langtoft, in this county, hanged her- self.— Verdict, lunacy. At the general quarter sessions at Lynn, on Monday last, Wm. Bone, for attempting to ravish his daughter in law, was sentenced to stand tw in the pillory, and to be imprisoned 12 months.

Notwithstanding the wool fair in Lewes, was more numeroufly attended last Friday than on any former occasion, yet there was no business done. The buyers talked of very low prices, and the sellers reasonably expect better times.— Lord Egremont, Lord Sheffield, Sir Joseph Banks, several other gentlemen, and all the prin- cipal yeomanry, dined at the Bear inn. Every room in the house was full Lord Sheffield, who was in the chair, explained after dinner, the cause ot the present embarrassments in trade. He said the state of France, of Flanders, of the countries on the Rhine, and not long since of Holland, especially of the first, had produced great convulsions, great interruptions of com- merce, and great bankruptcies. In his opinion, the present check to trade does not arise so much. from the want of a demand, as from the want of confidence, and from paper money, the usual medium by which business had been carried on, having been thrown out of circulation. He ob- served, that the demand for woollens for home consumption. which was the greatest market, was not diminished, and that the war and confusion which spread over a considerable part of the ma- nufacturing countries, of Europe, could not lessen, eventually encrease the demand from fo- ALL that FREEHOLD MESSUAGE or DWELLING- HOUSE, situate, standing and ing in the Lord- Street, of Gainsburgh aforesaid ( lately occupied by the said Bankrupt) consisting of a good and commodious SHOP, and Dining Room fronting the Street; Drawing Room, and Chambers, on the Second Story ; Three Chambers on the Third Story, and Garrets over the same; Kitchen, Back Kitchen, and Brewhouse backwards; Stable, and other convenient Offices, in the Yard thereto belonging.

By his MAJESTY'S ROYAL LETTERS PATENT, Bearing Date the 15 lb if May, 1792. THE celebrated WORM MEDICINE, in the form of Gingerbread Nuts, prepared by RO- BERT MASON, Surgeon, Sodbury, Gloucestershire. late ASSIsTANT and SuccesSOR to DOCTOR WAITE, deceased, whose house and business, in SURGERY and PHYSIC, he now occupies, which was assigned to him in the life- time of DOCTOR WAITE. These Nuts break the knot in the gut next the sto- mach, pass through the smallest passages in the body, and purge away those ropy and slimy humours which cause those vermin; they are like wise the best for gross- bodied children, who are apt to breed Worms, and have large bellies, stinking breaths, and fevers ; they cleanse the bowels of all stiff and clammy humours, which stop the paths, and prevent the juices from being conveyed to the liver. This remedy far excels most purges in the world for restoring the sick ; there is no Medicine more wanting in all families, and it is the best physic yet known where purging is required, such as the Measles, Small- pox, Hard- drinking, and Surfeits ; it also pre- vents Reaching and Vomiting in the morning, and gives eafe in a short time in the molt violent and racking pains of the Cholic. Thefe Nuts likewise act as a most excel lent diuretic, bringing away the Gravel by urine; and also cleanse, purify, and cause a free Circulation of the Blood, when in a manner stagnated. For Children there cannot be a speedy core without a good Worm Medicine, and as a preparative for Inocu- lation ; and for persons of any age when the Small- Pox is in the neighbourhood, there is no medicine so safe and certain. These valuable Nuts are sold genuine in Boxes only, containing thirteen Nuts, Price is. by Mr. New- comb, Stamford; Mr. John Drury, Lincoln; Mr. Wil- cockson, Spalding; Mr. Phillips, Leicester; Mr. Pal- mer, and Mr. Grounds, Wisbech ; Mr. Hodson, Cam bridge; Mrs. Brass, Hull; Mr. Sheardown, Louth; and Messrs. Burbage and Stretton, Nottingham ; and Whole- sale by JOHN SCoTT, No. 417, Strand, London, sole General Agent for this Medicine, to whom all Orders from Country Venders mult be addressed. GENERAL CAUTION. The Nuts sold by J. Evans, of Long- Lane, London, and W. Howard, of Reading, wrapt in Bills, are not the Genuine Worm Medicine, in the form of Gingerbread Nuts, as prepared by the King's Letters Patent, by Robert Mason, Surgeon, in Sodbury, successor to Mr. J. Waite, but an imitation. Be careful and observe, the genuine are in boxes, labeled with the name of the Patentee, and ask for Mr. MASON'S PATENT WORM NUTS. LEAKE's PATENT PILLS. To THOMAS TAYlOr, Surgeon, No. 9, New Bridge- Street, London. SIR, Dublin, March 10, 1793. IThink it is but doing Justice to the Memory of Mr. LEAKE, to communicate the following very extraordinary Cure performed by his PILULA SALU- TARIA. A Man who has lived with me for some Years, in the Capacity of a Gardener, was about a Twelve- month ago infected with the Venereal Disease, the Consequence of which was a virulent Gonorrhoea ; upon this he imme- diately applied to One of those, who, without any real Knowledge of the Disease, promised an immediate Cure: The improper Treatment of this Man brought on a Gleet, Buboes in the Groin, and at length, what was at first a slight Clap, degenerated into a confirmed Lues; corroding Ulcers gradually began to cover his Body, and had crept to the Cartilage of his Nose, which they were destroying very fast, when the poor Fellow, finding Dis- guise no longer possible, with Tears in his Eyes, con- fided to me the whole Affair. As he had been to me a most valuable Servant, I procured him all the Assistance 1 was able. After a Week's Attendance, the Faculty declared his Case desperate. i had heard much of your PiluLA SALUTARIA; in this Case I knew their Effects might be beneficial, and could not be dangerous.— I therefore sent for some,— and it is no less true than surprising, that they actually, in less than a Month, effected a perfect Cure. 1 write this at the Indication of JOHN GORDON ( that is the Man's Name), whose Gratitude is unbounded.— As a Friend of mine is coming to London, I desired him to leave this at your House. I remain, Sir, your humble Servant, THOMAS BISHOP. P. S. If, through the Medium of the public Prints, you chuse to communieate this Instance of the Efficacy ol LEAKE'S PILLS, you are at Liberty to do so. The above Medicine is prepared and sold by the sole Proprietor, THOMAS TAYLOR, Member of the Corpo- ration of Surgeons, London, at his House, No. 9, New Bridge- street; where he will give Advice, without a Fee, to Person. taking these Pills; and will answer Pa- tients' Letters ( if Post paid) on the same Terms, observ- ing in all Cases the most inviolable Secresy.

FoR THE ITCH. By the King's Authority is Sold. DR. WHEATLEY's Remedies for the ITCH, which cures in Four Hours, is of an agree- able Smell, does not contain the least Particle of Mer- cury, or any pernicious Ingredient whatever, so that In- fants at the Breast may be cured without the least Danger. The great Demand for this Ointment sufficiently shews its Efficacy, as well as the ( frequent tho') fruitless At- tempts to imitate it; there is no Medicine of the Kind which cures in so short a Time but as many Persons may dislike the use of an Ointment, the Doctor prepared a Liquid as perfectly safe, and as certain in its effects ; it has no smell, nor does it in the least soil the Linen ( a Circumstance which renders it highly valuable) and to some People much superior to any Ointment.

SIR, IN Justice to my Conscience, and in Gratitude to your invaluable Medicine, 1 send you the follow- ing authentic and efficacious Production of Mr. DAW- SON's ELIXIR, and his LITHONTRIPTIC LIQUOR as now solely prepared by you— For Six or Seven Years last past, I have been, by Intervals, much afflicted with a Windy Cholic, and Gravelly Substance in the Kidnies. which oft Times obstructed the Urinary Passage, and caused excruciating Pains, with a sickly Lowness of Habit.— Hearing strong Recommendations of DAWSON'S DROPS, prepared by Mr. EDWARD MARRIOTT, of Barrowden, in the County of Rutland, about Eleven Months ago, I applied for a Bottle of each Sort, and f immediately took a Quantity of Drops of each, which had the desired effect, and entirely removed the Pains- and when 1 perceived any Relapse, by having Recourse to the above Medicines, it speedily vanished — That others in the same Situation may know where to apply for Relief, I send you this Information, and am, with due Respect, Your humble Servant, JOHN FLETCHER.
