( ) V R1 if V sATURDay October 22. 1720 Va misero mihi, quanid de spe decidi! Terent. S I R, Owever idle Fancies may suggest that the present melancholy Prospect cf the Recursion of the South- Sea Tide, is Subject for Mirth and Buffboonry ; those of better Judgments* who accustom themselves to think seriously, can't but believe it an Affair of the most deplorable As- pect : And what can give us a more expressive and exquisite Idea of the Fickle- ness of Fortune, and the Inconstancy of Temporal Prosperi- ties, than to behold fo many Vessels which lately with such magnificent State bore up the Stream of the swelling Tide, now lie wrecked up in the forsaken Sands. OH thoughtless Mortals ! always blind to Fate, Too soon dejected, and too soon elite. As it's certain, that nothing so elevates us even beyond our selves; that transports, with such vain Hopes, and flattering Delusions, nor more effectually corrupts our Minds, and cre- ates in us Disdain and Arrogancy, than a too sudden Increase of Riches; so o fall almost in a Moment into the other Extream, to lose at one Cast a bulky Fortune, and sink immediately from Affluence and Plenty, into a low Ebb of Indigence and Want, is a Case on the other Hand that has as natural a Tendency to create Melancholly and Despair. This, and worse, is my Mis- fortune ; for to all this is added the Loss of a Mistress, of such a Mistress, whose commanding Beauty, and attractive Charms, had more deeply engaged my Soul ; and whose Loss more seri- sibly afflicts it, than all that Loss of Thousands And what re- mains to make me more compleatly miserable? Ah perfidious Belinda ! I have, but too late discovered this sordid, ungenerous Mind, masked under the sweetest, most enchanting Disguise that ever the Sun beheld. Oh Syren! who could look upon that beauteous Face and think of Danger? If I have Reason to blame ( to say no worse) the Fall of Stock upon the alone Principle of the diminishing my Fortune, I have much more Reason to complain, in that it has lost me what is infinitely more valuable, and sunk with its own Price, my Belindas Af- fections Now her base Principle of Interest is apparently discovered, ar. d you can't but think it strange, when 1 tell you that her Carriage was always suited to the Price of Stock, and that ' twas that alone influenced her Smiles and frowns : This, perhaps, by a less absolute Lover had been sooner discovered ; and to me, the Analogy and proportionate Rise and Fall of her affections with the Stock, had been conspicuously' evident, had not those transcendent Beams of Beauty dazzled my Sight, and weakened the wonted Power of my Opticks: ' Tis true, I could not but be sensible of frequent Changes, and that her kinder Smiles, and killing Frowns, were alternately dispensed, bur I attributed all to some little Uneasiness, or to a caprici- ous Humour natural to th « Sex ; and such favourable Turns can Love invent, and so prone are we to think Things as we would have ' em, that I often imagined it a little Female Art to accuate my Desire. I hoped those killing Frowns were forced, and those sudden Storms raised on Purpose to eclipse the Sun- shine of her Smiles, to make me more truly value and bless their happy Influence; and I believe you are too much a Lover not to know, that Amantium Irae amoris redintegratio est. A Barometer gives not a more sure Indication of the Wea- ther, a D al of the Hour, or the Moon of the Tide, than her Face has for fome Months part of the Rise and Fall of Stock : From the late Reflux from a 1000, she has gradually decreased her Favours, and sunk ' em by Decrees with all imaginable Niceness, in her Regard to the sinking Stock : After their Fall to 800, ' twas with some Difficulty I obtained to have my Visits accepted; and then for any extraordinary Satisfaction I re- ceded, ' twould have been equally as pleasing to hAve had those Favours denied ; for she was so much altered, so disobliging, and captious, that I could neither look, speak, or do any Thing to please her. As before every Address was received with a modest Freedom, and each Look spoke a secret Satisfa- ction: Now it w » s, pray, Sir, forbear, you take very great Liberties. — I wonder at your Rudeness, pray cease your Impertinence, & c. with Looks so scornful, fo Cruelly kill- ing, that oh! if you ever knew what ' twas to be in Love, and to be thus treated, you couid not but pity me. In short, I was all Amazement and Confusion, and sat silently gazing, ' till I almost lost my little Remains of Sense; so like an Ass, that very pathetick Resemblance of a poor, whining, fouless Creature, a Lover. I begin now, Mr. Mist, to be very angry with my self for so prostrating my Reason, and am fully perswaded, that to be downright in Love, is in plainer Terms, to be a down- right Fool; for to doat upon one's Ruin, to sacrifice one's Reason to an inordinate Passion, and to ido- lize abate perfidious Wretch, whose barbarous Treatment justly merited my sharpest Resentment, is, if not Folly, direct Madness. Since the Fall of Stock to 600, I could but once gain Admittance, though I have often sollicited for it with a great deal of Warmth and Application; and then I was received so coldly, with such damned senseless Indifference, as perfectly confounded me; she received me as I had bern a Husband, or as Men of Quality do impertinent Duns. In my Prosperity, when the rising Stock made me imagine that For- tune courted my Embrace, and considering that she generally yields to the bold and brave, I with eagerness pursued the Chase; but now the inconstant, the deluding Jilt, that had drawn me on with so fair a View, that so long seemed within my Reach, and suffered me to grasp her as I pleased, has left me in the Lurch; like as the doubling Hars retreats, whilst the too eager Dog o'er- shoots his Prey. I that could nor content my self with such prodigious Gains, and building upon the imaginary Notion of Stocks rising to a much higher Pitch, by which I hoped to double my Fortune, have like the Dog in the Fable, very fairly lost the Substance, by catching at the Shadow, which is according to our own Proverb, Ail Covet all Lose. When Stock was rising, and Belinda kind, my tow- ring Fancy dreamt of nothing but stately Palaces, rich Furni- ture, and splendid Equipages ; I pleased my self with thinking how magnificent and grand, how like my self I shou! d appear, when in my gilded Chariot, belinda by my Side, and thus and thus attended: but now awakened from my golden Dream, I find I have been building Castles in the Air, have beenstrangely mished < J$ 590 ) misled by an Ignis Fatuus, and that all my fine Things, which never had Existence but in th « imaginary Conception of my own projecting Noddle, were reduced to nothing. All that I have to add is, that you would afford your friend- ly Advice to one undone by such complicated Ills, and let me know where there remains any Comfort for one who has been Fool enough to venture his All, both his outward Substance, and inward Peace, upon the hazardous and changeable footing of merciless Waves, and the more dangerous Evil, Woman's Smiles. for my Part, I have so much of the Spirit of an old Roman, that was I not restrained by those clearer Notions of Futurity, I should rather cease to be, than to be miserable. I am, Sir, Yours, & c. John Jobbernol. Rebus in angustis facile est contemnere vitam. Mr. Mist, IHave, of late ( when time permitted) made it my Business to read the Works of most of our Philosophers in being, and have observ'd, in all their Morals, they begin the Doctrine of Virtues with Courage ; and, ' tis my Opinion, Sir, that among all the Virtues that belong to Mankind, this will justly claim the Precedency, and is certainly the most fundamental Part of Morality : This Virtue is pre- requir'd to the Susception of all the rest,' for the very Entrance into the School of Wisdom. A virtuous Course is certainly a State of Discipline, Difficulty aud Hardship. Therefore, Sir, I cannot help inserting, that I think it a great Piece of Daring to set up for a good Man ; especially, if to the proper Difficulties of a virtuous Engagement, are add those Calamities and Straits it oftentimes exposes us to, through the Malice and Folly of the World : So ( as a late in- genious Author tell us.) Plato, set upon his School Door, let none enter here that understands not Mathematicks ; it may be set as a Motto up" n the School of Virtue, Let none enter here that wants Courage-, and, as ' tis necessarily requisite to the Suscoption of all other Virtues, Pi it is their main Support, Gua, ' toi Establishment: Without Courage every other Virtue preca- rious, and lies at the Mercy of every cross Accident ; without this, let but a Pistol b « held to the Breast, find the severest Chastity will be frighted into Compliance, the most heroick Friendship into Trcachery, and the most ardent Piety into Re- nunciation of God and Religion. There is nothing among all the Uncertainties of this sublunary World so tottering and unstable as the Virtue of a Coward ; he has that with him that upon Occasion Will infallibly betray every Virtue he has ; so to secure him from Sin, you must keep him from Temptation. Courage is most eminently signalized in the Case of Martyr- dom, when a Man submits to the greatest Evils of Pain, to a- void that much greater one of Sin ; this is the very Summity and Persection of Courage, thar which an Hannibal or Scipio could never equal in all their Gallantry and Feats of War. That which with the Popular passes for Courage, is certainly nothing else but Stupidity and Desperateness, a brutish sort of Knight- Errantry, in seeking out needless Encounters, and run- ning into Dangers without Fear or Wit; which is so far from having the foremention'd Property of Courage, of being a Guardian and Security of our Virtues, that ' tis in it self a Sin. And, I am certain, there is no Man of Sense but must allow, that all Acts of Valour that are not under the Direction of Pru- dence, can be call'd nothing but desperate Fool- hardiness. Mr. Mist, if ( as your Friend and constant Reader) you'll honour me so far as to give this Place ! n your next Journal, I shall take some Opportunity to repay the Obligation. For fear you should neglect it, Sir, I'll tell the Good it may produce. There's two young Gentlemen ( both my Friends) that have unfortunately quarrell'd, and have appointed Monday Morning Eight o' Clock to dispute it, and try their Courage ( as they call it) behind Montague- House. I hope, Sir, a Sight of this on Saturday will convince them of their Error, and cause them to follow the Philosophers Morals, and their Rules, which is to dispute their Courage over a Bottle. I am, SIR, Youry very humble Servant, Bernardo Valentine FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Two Mails are arrived from Holland, and one from France since our former. By the latter are continued most fad Ac- counts, relating to the infectious Distemper at Marseilles, and other Parts of France ; and, in short, they tell us now, that it does not yet appear to have abated in any Place where it first raged, as was reported, but that the Numbers which die daily of it, are yet as great as ever, in Proportion to the Number of People that are left alive for it to prey upon. The Government in France are still taking all further Precaution, In their Power, if possible, to prevent its Advances, and check its Fury ; and a third Line is ordered to be thrown up, which is to be guarded with the utmost Strictness ; but it is feared none of thesle Pro- ceedings may prove so effectual as to lessen the threaten'd De- solation, till it receives a more powerful Stop than human In- dustry can apply to it, by the Cold of the approaching Season, which, ' tis highly probable, may produce an intire Abasement, since they find now, that but one cool Day will check its Fu- ry, and that not a tenth Part so many die then, as when the Weather is either hot or warmer. Mr. Law, and thro' him the India Company in France have lately stood a very powerful Attack there, which, tho ' headed by some of the greatest Men in the Kingdom, and carried on with all the Arts, good Management, and Judgment the Na- ture of the Thing would admit of, has been so far from an- swering the Design of the Undertakers, that, if possible, it his more effectually rivetted and established the Interest of both the former than before; and after the latter had carried Mat- ters to the greatest Length, and were at the highest Pitch of their Expectation, they had the Mortification to see, after a full Examination of them all, their Schemes and Pretensions exploded, anf rejected, as groundless, vain, impracticable, and filled With Difficulties and Inconvenience, that were noc to be Surmounted; one of thefe Projects was for the taking the Farms from the India Company, and another for taking the Revenue from tie Crown; for the latter of which they pre- tended they would pay his Majesty six Millions per Month, maintain his Houshold, pay the Troops of the Crown, repair his Palaces, and mend all the High Ways of the Kingdom; but they were both rejected, as ridiculous, to the exceeding Joy and satisfaction of tha People, who plainly saw they must have been ruined, if the other had succeeded ; for in the Fall of Mr. Law, the Stock., in which such a Multitude of Fami- lies have all their Fortunes, would have received a Wound past the Power of any Body of Men to have retrieved, at least till their Distruction had been compleated, who arc the present Possessors of them. People seam much more easy and satisfy'd with their Cir cumstances in France than formerly ; the new Species begins to move i the Town- house of Paris hava already begun to pay in Money the Arrears of the first six Months, for the new cre- ated Rents on the Town- House there ; and as the Coin circu- lates there, no doubt but they will be much more so, especially if their trade and Credit revive at the same Time, which they now seem to make little or no doubt of. Their religious Affairs seem more intricate than any other; and what makes their Difficulties upon that Head the greater, aud less promising of a speedy Change in their Favour, than any other Distresses they labour under. The Cardinal de No- ailles, from whom they once expected so much Good and Ad- Vantage to the Gallican Church, seems now the chief Obstacle to its Peace. He continues positive in his Refusal to publish his Mandate, till the Parliament of Paris shall have register'd the Accommodation ; and, in short he has acted so very con- trary to the Measures of the Court of late, in that Particular especially, that he appears to have lost much of his Interest there ; and People talk variously of his having retired to M. Valerien, which, as his Friends gave out, was meerly for the sake of his Devotion, but it does not meet with intire Credit. However, be that as It will, it is certain the Government have dropt him, as it were, out of the New Council of Conscience, esta- blished at Paris, for determining of Affairs relating to Religi- on ; and it is no very extraordinary Mark of their additional Favour for him, that they have substituted the Cardinal de Rohan in the Room, as it were, of the Cardinal de Noaillas who was the chief Opposer of the latter in the great Affair of the Constitution. This new Council consists of the Cardinal de Rohan, as Pre- sident, the Cardinal de Bissy, the Archbishop of Cambray, the Bishop of Frejus, the King's Confessor, and the Bishop of Cler mont. They are to meet every Wednesday at the Palace Royal, and are only to intermeddle with the Concerns of the Church. The Execution of the Spanish Expedition has met with some small Interruption, for the want of Transports to carry the Troops; so that they are not in so great a Forwardness as by our last, Accounts we might very well have expected, tho' they are supplying the Defect with all possible Dispatch ; and rhe Marquis de Lede, their General, being upon the Spot, to influ- ence Matters with his Presence, there is no doubt to be made, but that the Design will take Place as soon as the Nature of Things will admit. We cannot yet pretend to determine with Certainty, whither their Views are directed ; but it is plain, if they intend any other Descent than upon the Coast of Africa, they take the properest Methods in the World to keep it secret, and to delude the Enquiries of Mankind, by drawing their Eyes that Way; for they write positively from Madrid, that four- seen W ( teen Battallions of their Troops are already transported to AFRIca, and are safely entered into the Town of Ceuta; and that the reat are to follow as aoon as they can be got ready, which, whether true, or otherwise, a very little Time will now discover. As for the Affair of a Treaty between Spain and the Allies, if we may believe what they write now, it is like to sufFer a Suspension for some Time from the Increase of the Plague in France ; and the Congress At Cambray'll not be formed, at least till it is seen whether the Penipotenitiaries may meet ( there without Apprehensions of suffering from the Encroachments of that Malady ; though, in the Interim, the several Ministers of the Powers concerned are making tne necessary Preparations to be ready at the shortest Warning to proceed to the place of Treaty, or as soon as it may appear to be safe for them to go thither ; so that they tell us, that Matter will no longer be de- ferred now, than, may be absolutely necessary for the publick Good to have it so. If the prospect of accommodating Matters in an amicable Manner, between the Roman Catholicks, and the Reformed in the Palatinate, and other Parts of the Empire, was promising and agreeable before, it is much more so now ; and they assure that the Protestant Powers, who appeared on Behalf of the latter, have had their Case so much at Heart, and been so very desirous of bringing Things to a Friendly Conclusion, that, upon their undertaking to restore the Roman Catholicks in the Protestant Countries to their former State (" who had been dealt with by Way of Reprisal) in fifteen Days Time, the Court of Vienna have changed their Resolution of allowing four Months to the Elector Palatine and others, for the giving Sa- tisfacton to their Subjects upon this Head ; and his Imperial Majesty, ' tis said, has dispatch'd an Express, with fresh Orders to Cardinal Saxe- Zaits, who is now with the Imperial Dyet at Ratisbon, to notify to them, that ' tis his Majesty's Pleasure, that the Redress of the Protestants should be fully made in a Month's Time at farthest. These Things indeed are not so fully confirmed, but that we may be allowed to wait for far- ther Advice before we conclude thrm certain. However, it adds to their Credit, that Letters from other Parts, as well as from Vienna it feif agree, in affirming, that it was generally expected, from the mutual good Advances of these contending Parties towards a Reconcilation, that all their former Diffe- rences would be terminated in a much shorter Time than was at first imagined ; and that it would be all finished in the Dyet at Ratisbon, without requiring an extraordinary Deputation of tre Empire for that Purpose, as was at first proposed. Things continue in the North in much thesame Situation as by our former. Neither the Swedes nor the Muscovites have either moved or prepared to move in any hostile Manner against each other, by Sea or Land, ( since our last; and as the Conferences are still held at Stockholm between the Musco- vite Ministers and those of the King of Sweden, People talk with abundance of Assurance, that the Preliminaries to a Peace will soon be adjusted and settled there, to the mutual Satisfa- ction of all Parlies: Though, however positive they may be upon this Head, ' tis not very probable, but that an Affair of so much Consequence as this seems to be, and which has so long involved the two Nations, may take much more Time in bringing to a happy Conclusion, than these hasty People would perswade us to. Our Letters seem to be preparing us for the word from Po- land, or at least to look for a very fatal Consequence of Affairs on that Side. The General dyet of the Kingdom is at last met, as they would call it, at Warsaw, though but very few of the Members are yet arrived. However, on the 30th part they came together, and their old Mareschal or Speaker presi- ded, and, according to Custom, recommended to them the Choice of a new one; but their Dissensions ran so very high upen this Point, and so much do they seem resolved to oppose the Measures of the Court, that though the Dyet cannot act without a Mareschal, and the old one has no other Power than to press for the Election of his Successor, yet they abso- lately refused to proceed in the Matter, and adjourned them- selves to the 7th Instant, as a Testimony, ' tis said, of their utter Aversion to enter upon any Affairs till Count Fleming is removed from his Command in the Army : Whether, at their next Meeting, and when the Assembly is like to bs more numerous, they may be porswaded to milder Methods, cannot yet be known ; tho', ' tis thought, in order to go 00 more re- gularly, they may be prevailed with at least to give up the first Point, and proceed to the Choice of their Mareschal, since, without his Presence, they are not to be confidered as a Dyet; nor, by their Constitution, can they go on without him in their Deliberations upon the Affairs of the Republick. The Plague continues to rage in Poland ; and by its Ap- proaches seems to threaten the City of Warsaw itself. How- ever, they take all possible Precautions to prevent it, though their Apprehensions of all proving ineffectual seem to be but ) 1 too just, since the large Concourse of People coming thither from most Parts of the Kingdom, and even from infected Places, to attend the General Dyet, reader it mUch more diffi- cult to secure themselves from the Distemper, than it mighi be for them to do so at any other Time. The Dutch begin'to find the ill EfFects of Bubbling now, as well as their Neighbours; and that Sort of Traffick seems upon the Decline there as well as in England ; their Stocks are low j and many of those, which the extravagant Humour of the Peo- ple had carried up to above a thousand Times more than the real incrinsick Value, are at length come down to their Origi- nal, and some of them 10 be worth nothing at all. The Con- sequences of which, as in other Places, have produced Innu- merable bankruptcies amongst them, and some of their most wealthy Merchants are reduced, at a Blow, from the utmost Affluence of Wealth, and the highest Pitch of Price and Lu- xury, to Beggary and Distress, which, ' tis thought, may at last issue in the Good of their Country in general, by effectu- ally preventing People's running into those Things for the fu- ture, and by blasting the Credit of those that remain pAst the Power of drawing in new Adventurers to their Distruction. By Letters, which came Express from the Gohre, we have an Account, that the necessary Preparations are making there for his Majesty's Departure for England ; many of the Lords of the Court have already left that Place, and are arrived in Holland, in order to imburk for London ; and it is not doubted, if no extraordinary Affairs intervene, and prevent it, but that, the Winds proving favourable, his Majesty himself will be at St. James's by the latter End of next Week, or the Be- ginning of that following.

Mr. Mist, IHere send you a Paragraph from the Lord knows who'S Book it runs thus, ^ I shall make a familiar Simile which every Reader may car- ry in his Mind wirhout the Help of Figures; and which, I think, has a very near Resemblance to the South- Sea Scheme, as it has been executed, viz. A having iool. Stock in Trade, though pretty much in Debt, gives it out to be worth 300 1. on Account of many Privileges and Advantages to which he's intitul'd- By relying on his great Wisdom and Integri- ty, sues to be admitted a Partner on those Terms, and ac- cordingly, brings 3001. into the Partnership The Trade being afterwards given out or discovered to be very impro- ving, C comes in at $ 001. and afterwards D at uool. and the Capital is then compleated to 2o « j 1. If the Partnership had gone ( : gone on no farther than A ar. d B, then A had got, ans B had lost i1001. if it had stopt at C, A had got, and C had lost zoo !. and B had been as he was before; But D also coming in, A gains 400 1. and B 100 1. and C neither gains nor loses, but D loses tfoo 1. indeed if A cou'd shew that the said Capital V . s intriniically worth 44001- there would be no Harm done t J D, and B and C would have been much obliges to him. Buc if the Capital at first was worth but 100 !. and increased only by the subsequent Partnerships; it must then be acknow- ledged, that B and C have been imposed, on in their Turns, and that unfortunate, thoughtless D pays the Piper. Your Friend and Servant, T. Daylight. On Monday Night several Gentlemen concern'd in South- Sea Stock, met to consider Expedients for redressing the pre- sent unhappy State of their Affairs ; but, like Men made _ de- sperate by Misfortunes, instead of coming to any Resolution for the general Good, they gave a Loose to their Passions, aad let fly such warm Expressions, that a Person vested with Au- thority broke up the Assembly, by declaring, that unless they departed, he would read the King's Proclamation against Tu- mults and Riots. The same Day the Earl of Sunderland arrived from Hol land, and waited on th » Lords Justiccs at the Cockpit, co whom he gave in Account, that his Majesty might be expected very soon, for that he designed to be in Holland by the time the Squadron of Men of War and Yachts should arrive 0n tha Coast ; whereupon Orders were gven for airing the Rooms belonging to the King's Appartment at Sr James's, and for getting every thing else ready for his Reception. the same Day the Yachts and Servants belonging to the HoushOld sail'd for tha Downs to join the Squadron of men of War designed to convoy his Majesty, as did likewise Sir John Jennings, to take upon him the Command of the said Squadron. • And on Tuesday we had an Account from the Downs, that they had all actually let sail from thence for Holland. OrderS are sent to the Magistrates of all Sea- Ports, to take particular Care that they suffer no Ships coming from the Streights, & c. to come into their Harbours, without perfor- ming due Quarentine, pursuant to the Proclamation published last Week for that Purpose. We have an Account, that in rhe late tempestuous Wea- ther several Ships perished on the Coast between Dunkirk and Calais. They write from Radnor and Brecknock in Wales, that they have had such excessive Rains of late as had caused the River Wye to overflow its Banks, insomuch that abundance of sheep and other Cattle were drown'd; and that the Works which were made at Glaseby- Bridge to repair that Part that was broken down by a former Flood, were carried away, and some Work- men drowned. The Hudson- Bay Company ars daily in Expectation of the Arrival of two or three of their Ships from thence, by whom they hope to be inform'd, that Captain Knight has met with desir d Success, in discovering Gold Mines some Leagues be- yond the Bay, of which from time to time he received Intel- ligence from the Indians whilst Governour there. The East- India Company have appointed the Ships lately hired into their Service to sail for the following Places, ( viz ) the Morris, Capt. Peacock; the Francis, Capt. Newsham ; the Cadogan, Capt. Hill, and a new Ship not yet launched, Capt. Hudson, for China : A new Ship, Capt. Kemish ; the Stretham, Capt. Westcot; the Marlborough, Capt. Micklefield, and an- other, Cape. Tolson, for the Coast and Bay : The Dawson, Capt. Benfield ; the King George, Capt. Norton ; the Stanhope, Capt. Pill, and the Grantham, Capt. Field, for Bombay : The Middlesex, Capt. Collet, and the James and Mary, Capt. Au- bourn, for Bengal : A new Ship, Cape. Whitaker, for St. He- lens : The Sunderland, Capt. Hunter, and a new Ship not yet launched, Cape. Wilson, for Mocha. On Tuesday, at the Pay- Office in Broad- Street, were paid the Men belonging to his Majesty's Ship the Royal Oak, who were absent when that Ship's Crew were paid off at the Nore. Letters from Cadiz this Week tell us, that the Spanish Ex- pedition which was thought to be laid aside, is now talk'd of more than ever; and, they assure us, that 2o Field- Pieces, some Mortars, Bombs, Carcasses, Powder and Ball, are actually im- barked ; and that they were preparing to imbark 5ooo Horse and 10000 Foot in open Boats, with 15 Days Provisions ; all which are to be convoy'd by two Genoese Ships of 60 Guns each, a Spanish Man of War of 70, and some other Ships of less Force ; out the Design is still Secret. On Tuesday the Painters Company held a Feast at their Hall in Trinity- Lane, and chose Sir James Thornhill, Serjeant- Painter to the King, their Master for the Year ensuing. 94 ) , The Payment on the first Subscription of the South- Sea, due the 14th Day of this Instant October, is put off, to the 14th Day of November next, allowing five per Cent. Interest for the same Yesterday was se'nnight the Sessions ended at the Old Baily, where nine Malefactors received Sentence of Death, v z Wil- liam Wichall, Richard Cecil, and John Harris, for Burglaries : William Fletcher, alias Fellows, tor Robbery on the High- way in the Streets of London: Anna Tompion, Mary Gran- ger, and Martha Pardue, for picking Pockets : Elizabeth Eves, for stealing above forty Shillings ouc of a Dwelling- house, and Stephen Delfosse, for returning from Transportation, contrary to the late Act, who are all ordered for Execution, excep; Mary Tompion, who pleading her Belly, was found pregnant. Joseph Jackson, convicted 0n two Indictments, for assaulting John Chrettenham, Thomas Career, and James Innocent, on the Highway, with Intent to rob them, was fined 20 I. on each Indictment, to be imprison'd for three Years, and till the Fine be paid.
