OR, . Britifh Gazetteer. eXcept none Cheat alll she w no Remorse of Conscience. Sweare Lye and Stand to it my heart is Zealous for my Countries Ruin MY HORSe EATS GOLD SATURDAY. May 20, 1721. The call for this Journal, ( last Week) be- ing very extraordinary, upon Account of the Delineation of Lucifer's Row- Barge in it, we are desir'd by several of our Correspondents, both in City and Country, to present them with it in this Week's Paper, with an Explanation of An Explanation of the aforesaid Cut; or Lucifer's Row- Barge dissected. i. The Cashire of the South- Sea Company. BEhold a Devil incarnate! black not white. Born to receive no Wrong, and do no Right In one Hand he a Key to Brabant shows, In t'other, Money he to England owes. His Trunk he keeps close shut, but yet with Fear, And Trembling he must spend his Substance there ; Among the Rulers of a foreign State, In Hopes they'll save him from a hempen Fate, 2. The Horse of an Accomptant to the SoUth Sea Company. A Man who lately Tea and Coffee Sold , Instead of Hay wou'd feed his Horse with Gold ; O! most abominable, wicked Pride, that he wou'd headlong to grim Pluto ride; Upon the Ruins of his Country's Fall, If he's no K ve, then there's no K ve at all. 3. The Correspondent of the Author of the London- Journal. SEE here Jack Catch, or Hangman, which you please, Who'll not be brib'd with any South- Sea Fees; For as the South Sea Villains did much Wrong, With golden Rowels he doth load each Thong ; And tightly flaugs the cheating Brokers ; who, To get him Wealth, did honest Folks undo. 4 A Stock- jobber, or Exchange Broker, whipt by the Com- mon Hangman, HE that in Sin was- got, and born, and bred, Do's now the Lasses of the Hangman dread ; Spare not the Rascal, for his horrid Crimes, Odious to present, and to future Times ; Shed all the Blood Which he has suckt from those, Whom Want do's now to Misery expose. 5. Belzebub prompting a Director of the South- Sea. SWear, Hand, and lie to it, the Devil cries, For that's the way to hide your Villanies ; Those horrid Villanies which have undone, Three Kingdoms, that into your Snares did run. O ! wretched England, and the Scottish State, And Ireland, were ye so mad of late ; To let but thirty undermining K ves, Make thousands, and your Generation Slaves, ' To their insaticate Avarice ! henceforth, Learn what one Pound at lawful Use is worth.' 6. Satan prompting the same Director in t'other ear. Satan to harden him in roguish Fraud, Wou'd have Remorse and Conscience both abhor'd; But Satan need not such curst Doctrine preach, For South Sea Robbers can the D l teach ; Such Villanies, well laid on roguish Rules, Which wou'd the fallen Angels all make Fools; Without Book they will lie, cheat, and forswear, Nay, all the Laws of Perjury out- dare ; To save them some Effects, and some Estate, Which they have most unjustly got of late.; In spite of Halters, whether old or new, which must, as they're dishonest, be their Due. 7. The Worm of Conscience fastens on the abovesaid Director. TO th' Worm, or Snake, which in the Grass lay hid, His feared Conscience do's Defiance bid ; He values not the Terrors of his Sting, p Who cou'd abuse the Favours of his King, > And th' Authority of Parliaments ; to bring 3 His Countrymen ( which Justice must provoke) To wear in Poverty an heavy Yoke. 8. The Cup of Indignation. BEhold the most audacious Impudence, Of this Director whose high, Insolence Can hold the Cup of Wrath, and in it drink, To make his Country in Destruction sink. No Vengeance dread's the Villain from on high, No Thunderbolts to crush him from the Sky : As ev'ry Scheme he makes in Knavery lies, The Laws of God and Man he will despise. 9. A Director's Sacrifice, which is a villanous Heart. OBserve the Heart of a vile, tricking Rogue, Who lately was with Dukes and Earls in Vogue; See how it briskly Flames with the Zeal, Of cruel plundering the Commonweal; This wou'd he very freely sacrifice, Till in sad Horrors Desolation flies; About his native Country, to defile, The Land with Rapine, and unheard of Guile; It ne'er was known before in any Age, That Villany erected such a Stage, Whereon, with sly insinuating Arts, They acted openly such monstrous Parts; Which were enough t'increase the Bubbles Rage, To massacre ' em without Respect to Age : Or Quality, for such a Sacrifice, Was some Attonement for their Villanies. JO. A Director in the Pillory. THis Fellow his Demerits has not MIST, For the Offences of his griping Fist. Thro' Penance- Board he looks with Infamy, For he who'll to his Country treach'rous be, Publick Example must his Treach'ry check, Before his Councry's made a wretched Wreck. II. The Superscription over the pillor'd Director, paraphras'd from the Prophet Zekiel, Chap. XXII. Ver, 12, 13. and Chap XXIII, Ver. 25, 26, 27. Gifts have they taken thy dear Blood to shed, By Usury and Increase their Hearts were led; B' extortion they their Neighbours have opprest, And God forgot, in whom is endless Rest. So Wrath divine, at their dishonest Gain, And Blood, which did at base Subscriptions, rain, Will raise the great Almighty's Jealousie, To rage against such Sinners furiously. Their Enemies, without Regard to Tears, Shall take away their Noses and their Ears; And the curst Remnant of their Progeny, Shall to the piercing Sword a Victim be ; Their Sons and Daughters too shall Fire consume, Yet these Disasters is not all their Doom, They shall be naked stript, their Jewels lose, And worse will God such hellish Miscreants use. 12. A Director decypher'd by the Knave of Diamonds hang'd, Diamonds cut Diamonds is the Sharpers Cry, When they have got a Bubble to suck dry ; therefore the Knave of Diamonds suited best. Such Sharpers who robb'd not the Land in Jest, But in good earnest pillag'd all Mankind, Whom they for their false Bait cou'd greedy find. Now see the End of Cheating, Fraud, and Theft, Of Mercy, Friends and Money too bereft, A Gibbet is his Fate ; and may it be, The Portion of his base Posterity. 13 . A Director wafting to Hell with the Tide. SE E here's the Glory of all Villany, Whose Sleeves with Money both embroider'd be; See here the Glory of the wicked Tribe, Who drew in Fools their Ruin to subscribe; See here the Glory of all Falshood too, Who'd hazard Soul his Country to undo. See with what State he stands upon his Gold, And gives it, for his Passage safe, untold. To the Aboads of that infernal Pit, From whence, for twice as much, he'll never get. 14. Lucifer's Row- Barge, for First Rate Passengers. NO T Charon's Boat, but Lucifer's fine Barge, Is this most spacious built, and very large. the Antient- Flag displays a bloody Hand, Which, with the Sword of Justice, makes to stand, All Traytors to their Country, to prevent, Their Money mitigating Punishment. The Staff is fixt on the terrestrial Ball, To shew When they to Death a Tribute fall, They must no Mercy look for from above, For Heavens ne'er of Villains Tears approve. But ON the Stern you may perceive the Fate, Which do's upon the Deeds of Traytors wait; The Hour Glass there doth limit out the Times, When Traytors ought to suffer for their Crimes, Whilst here on Earth ; and if old Tyburn must Assert its Vindication of the Just, Her Beams Rogues Bodies some short space require, Their Bowels to be cast into the Fire; And then to end the Wrath of angry Fates, Their quarter'd Limbs must mount the City Gates ; Before they wholly bid this World adieu, To see what is their Lott in one that's new, 15. Moloch sounds his Trumpet for Joy of meeting with a good Fare. 1 MOloch most joyfully his Trumpet sounds, For this rich Fare, who cou'd the Peoples Wounds Behold, without Compassion to their Pain, By giving what he'd robb'd'em of, again, But But is his Heart was fill'd with Cruelty, The Cruelties hell meet may endless be ,6. Belial playing on the Violin to the Director THis Passenger's the son of Belial right. In whom th' infernal Fiend takes such Delight. That seeing him grown basely rich so soon, On Violin he gives his Son a Tune. But if he dances, he muh pay him well, Or else what Life he'll lead we cannot tell. 17. Mammon takes a Trip at Helm for him. SE E Mammon with his Horns, but has no Ears, Upon the glist'ring Gold and Silver leers; In Hopes to get it, he guides well the Helm, To swim with Speed into their burning Realm : No doubt but Mammon there his Friend will be, Who was his Servant in Iniquity ; For that he might his Matter truly serve. To feast his own Guts he'd his Country starve. 18. The South Sea. IN most Geograplers I've often read, That Manners the Irish Seas do dread; Or when they're in the Gulf of Florida, Anguish and Fear their Spirits do dismay; On Rocks of Scilly near our British Coast, The greatest Ships have oftentimes been lost; The Bay of Biscay's stil'd a rowling Sea, Altho' the greatest Calms of Wind may be ; Charybdis Sands they also strive to shun, But greater Dangers Seamen cannot run, Than when to South- Sea they do steer their Course, Oh! nothing, nothing can to Man be worse. By failing thither Farhers ruin Son, And Daughters by the Mothers are undone. Widows their Joyntures lose, young Heirs, Estates; Children their Portions, which sad Loss creates Self Murders, rather than they'd live to be, Reproach'd, for sailing in that fatal Sea, Where, by Experience, it has now been found, That those who plow'd those Waves were always drawn'd, Except the Pilots, who ( as many say) Have found that Sea to H— the nearest Way. 19 Lucifer rowing his own Barge. THO' Lucifer, for Pride, did fall, we know, Yet see how humbly he submits to row ; But Int'rest do's not Mortals only sway, Spirits for Profit will Mankind obey, Do any Thing a sinful Wretch to gain, To be a Subject, where he's doom'd to reign Beyond the Verge of the beloved Light, In the Abyss of everlasting Night; The fittest Place for all Directors, who, With Gladness do their Country's Fall pursue. ao. The Entrance into Hell, represented by the Mouth of the Leviathan, or great Whale, belching Flames of sulphurous Fire. BEhold the Place by Heav'n prepar'd below, For them who Wrath divine must undergo ; Eternal Punishment's ordain'd for those, Who're wicked, and to Honesty prove Foes. Then what must such vile Plunderers expect, When they upon their Actions do reflect ; Who basely have three Kingdoms half undone, From aged Father to the Infant Son ? From many Eyes they've drawn a briny Flood, But Tears to ruin'd People do no good ; To their preceding Loss, succeeding Grief, Tho' e'er so grievous, cannot give Relief, It is the Parliament must plead their Cause, Who'll see the Execution of their Laws, Fulfill'd on Villains of the blackest Hue, That ever Sledge or Care to Tyburn drew .- Yet grant they may not unrepenting die, But ( tho' it's not their Due) to endless Glory fly. The Continuation of the Tryal of Archbishop Laud. Then were read several Warrants for Commitment, and to bar Access to them, and for seizing Mr. Prynn's Books; and their Commitment to the Isles; but his Grace said thefe were the Acts of the Court of Star Chamber, and could no' be charg'd upon him. Another Order against the Aldermen of Coventry was produc'd. who had shown some Favours to Mr Prynn ; but his Grace answer'd, it was not only for Favours shown him, but for speaking contemptuously of the Sentence of the Star Chamber ; however, there was nothing in the Order that could be charg'd particularly upon him. ' . Prynn urg'd that his Grace gave Instructions to Mr. Attorney Noy to prosecute him, bearing him ill Will for bringing a Prohibition his Grace said, he remembred nothing of a Prohibition, and so could bear him no Malice for it; and if Dr. Heylin had drawn up any Informations for Mr. Attorney, as Prynn alledg'd, he did not set him on work, nor was it prov'd. - 1 That as to Mr. Attorney's approving his Book, he said much otherwise in open Court ; and as to his Book be. ing seiz'd after it was licensed, that was done by the High- Commission, and not by his Grace. Mr. Prynn urg'd, That he sent his Grace a Letter, and that his Grace sent it to Mr. Attorney to have him prosecuted upon it. His Grace said, whether ic were a Letter or a Libel others might judge ; but that he sent it to Mr. Attorney only to show him how he was us'd; and that Mr. Attorney sent for Prynn, and show'd him his Letter, and advis'd him not to follow this Course of libelling. And Mr. Prynn, in his Breviate of the Archbishop's Life, says he tore that Let- ter ; but now upon his Oath says he made Mr. Attor- ney believe so, but he had it still. Prynn says, he censur'd him for having his Hand in all the Pamphlets of those Times, tho' at the same time he doubted of it To this his Grace answer'd, that he gave no Vote at his Censure ; and further, tho' his Grace might say he doubted his Pen was in all the Pamphlets, yet he was not censur'd for those Pamphlets, but for his own And whereas he says, he could not be suffer'd to speak with Burton and Bastwick about their joint Answer ; and that his Cross- Bill was refus'd; this was done by the Court Of Star. Chamber, and their Lordships very well knew the Lord- Keeper manag'd the Affairs of that Court. Mr. Burton came to depose his Wife was kept from him ; and Mrs. Bastwick depos'd she was kept from her Husband ; but his Grace observ'd there was nothing In their Testimony that related particularly to him, but concern'd the Court of Star- Chamber, or High- Com- mission, and therefore he did not think they requir'd any particular Answer. Then the Charge of demolishig the Houses to repair St. Paul's was insisted on again, and Witnesses brought to prove that 60 Houses were taken down, and some of io Yards from the Church. To which he answer'd, it was no more than was necessary, and the Tenants had receiv'd an ample Recompence; however, he should not take all the Acts of the Council Table upon himself. Friday, March 13, 1643. The first Thing charg'd upon his Grace this Day, was that Mr. Newcommin of Colchestler refused to admini- ster the Sacrament but at the Rai's; and that Burrows and theWitnesses indicting him for it, his Bill was thrown, out, and he was afterwards call'd before a High- Com- mission Court for it, by a Warrant from his Grace ; and that the Mayor would not obey an Habeas Corpus. and said he would obey his Grace's Warrant before the King's Writ; and that a Letter was sent to Judge Crawley and shew'd to Judge Hutton. His Grace answer'd, That it was not prov'd that Mr. Newcommin had any Direction from him for refusing the Sacrament but at the Rails ; that Burrows could not be taken up by his Warrant, for no Warrant ever issued from the High- Commission under three Hands; That if the Mayor spoke indiscreetly of the Habeas Corpus it was not to be imputed ro him ; and that it appear'd from himself that the Habeas Corpus was allow'd, for that the Judges looking into the Business, said it was a Cheat to get Money, and return'd him back to Colchester and as to the Letter, he did not so much as say it was sent the Judges by his Grace's Direction, or mention the Contents of the Letter; so that there was no colour to charge his Grace up on this Circumstance. And a Second Witness, depos'd, That some Players were taken at a Tavern at an unseasonable Hour on Easter Eve, and that they pretended they came from his Grace ; that on Complaint to his Grace he refer'd him to Sir John Lamb, and he found there was a Plot to make him an Instrument about the Rails. To be continu'd. On C 19H ) Last Week was publish'd the following Order giv- ing Directions to our Archbishops and Bishops, for the preserving of Unity in the Church, and the Purity of the Christian Faith; particularly in the Doctrine of the Holy Trinity. GEORGE R. , „ , MOST Reverend, and Right Reverend, Fathers in God, we greet you well. Whereas we have been given to understand, that divers impious Tenets and Doctrines have been of late advanced and maintained with much Boldness end Openness, contrary to the great fundamental Truths of the Christian Religion, and par- ticularly to the Doctrine of the Holy and Ever blessed Trinity and that moreover divers Persons, as wel| of the Clergy as Laity, have persumed to propagate such impious Doctrines, not Only by publick Discourse and Convention, but also by writing and publishing books ard Pamphlets in Opposition to the sacred Truths ; to the great dishonour of Almighty God, the Disturbance of the Peace and Quiet of this our Church and Nation, and the Offence of all pious and sober minded Chri- stians. We therefore out of our princely Care and Zeal for preserving the Purity of the Christ an Faith, of which we are, under God, the chief Defender, and also for pre- serving the Peace and Quiet of the Church and State, do strictly charge and require you our Archbishops and Bishops, to whom, under us, the Care of Religion more especially belongs, that you do, without Delay, signify to the Clergy of your several Dioceses this our Royal Command, which we require you to see duly published and observed ; namely, that no Preacher whatsoever, in his Sermon or Leisure do presume to deliver any ' other Doctrine concerning the great and fundamental ' Truths of our most Holy Religion, and particularly ' concerning the Blessed Trinity, than what are con- ' tained in the Holy Scriptures, and are agreeable to ' the three Creeds, and the thirty nine Articles of Re- ligion. And whereas divers good Laws have been enacted for the restraining the exorbitant Liberties aforesaid, one particularly in the thirteenth Year of Queen Eliza- beth, Intituled, An Act for Ministers of the Church to be of sound Religion ; by which it is provided, ' That if any person Ecclesiastical, or which shall have Eccleliasti- cal, Living, shall advisedly maintain, or affirm, any .' Doctrine directly contrary or repugnant to the thirty ' nine Articles, and being convented before the Bishop ' of the Diocese, shall persist therein, or not revoke his ' Error, or after such Revocation estsoon affirm such un- true Doctrine, such maintaining, or affirming and ' persisting, or such of soon affirming, shall be just Cause ' to deprive such Person of his Ecclesiastical Promotion ; ' and it shall be lawful to the Bishop of the Diocese, or ' the Ordinary, to deprive such Person so persisting. or ' lawfully convicted of such estsoons affirming, and up- on such Sentence qf Deprivation pronounced, he shall ' be indeed deprived : And one other Act of Parliament made in the ninth Year of King William the Third, In- tituled, An Act for the more effectual suppressing of Blasphemy and Profaneness by which it is provided, ' That if any ' Person shall, by writing, printing, teaching, or advised speaking, deny any one of the Persons in the Holy Trinity to be God ; or shall assert and maintain there ' are more Gods than one ; or shall deny the Christian ' Religion to be true: or the Holy Scriptures of the ' Old and New Testament to be of Divine Authority ; ' and shall, upon Indictment, or Information, in any of His Majesty's Courts at Westminster, or at the Assizes be thereof lawfully convicted by the Oath of two or more credible Witnesses; such Person, for the first OfFence, shall be adjudged incapable and disabled in law to have or enjoy any Office or Employment Ec- clcsiastical, Civil, or Military ; and that if any Person so convicted, as aforesaid, shall, at the time of his Conviction, enjoy or possess any Office, Place, or Em- ployment, such Office, Place, or Employment shall be void : And if he offend and be convicted a second time of any of the said Crimes, he shall be disabled to sue, profecure. plead, or use anv Action or Infor- mation in any Court of Law or Equity. or to be Guar- dian of any Child, or Executor, or Administrator of any Person, or capable of any Legacy, or Deed of Gift, or to bear any Office, Civil or Military, or Benefice Ecclesiastical, for ever, within this Realm ; and shall ' also suffer Imprisonment for the Space of three Years, ' without Bail or Mainprize,' from the time of such Conviction : ' We therefore, being desirous to discounte- nance and suppress all such impious Attempts and Prac- tices, to the utmost of our Power, do strictly charge and Command you to make use of your own Authority for that End, according to the Tenor and Direction of the said Act made in the thirteenth Year Queen Eliza- beth ; together with all other Means and Endeavours suitable to your Holy Profession, for opposing and sup- pressing all such Practices. And we, on our part, will give strict Charge to our Judges, and all other Civil Officers, to do their Duty in executing the said Act made in the ninth Year of King William the Third, and all the other good and wholesome Laws made for the Pre- servation of our Holy Religion, upon such Persons as shall offend against the same, and thereby give Occasion of Scandal and Disturbance in our Church and Kingdom. ^ Given at our Court at Sr. James's, the Seventh Day of May 1711, in the Seventh Year of our Reign. By his Majesty's Command, CARTERET Mr. Vanost at Hide- Park Corner, hath newly finish'd a fine Figure, cast in Brass, of King George on Horse- back, after the Model of that incomparable Piece at Charing Cross ; and we hear it is to be set up at Hamp- ton Court. It was last Friday 7- Night resolv'd in a Grand Com- mittee of the Honourable House of Commons, That of the Seven Millions payable by the South- Sea Company to the Government, Five Millions thereof shall be re- mitted, and the other Two reserVed for the Publick ; which Resolution ' tis believ'd cannot fail of considerably raising the Value of South Sea Stock. Last Week His Majesty's Ship Falmouth, Capt. Wade sailed from Woolwich for the Baltick, having re- paired the Damage she sustained near Long Reach His Majesty's Ship the Royal Anne- Galley, Capt. Willis, lately arrived from the Coast of Guiney, and last from Barbadoes, is come up to Deptford.

Monday 7. Night a Woman of 120 Years of Age next August, was carried in a Chair toSt. James's: She was in perfect Health, and of sound Complexion and Memo- ry, and what is remarkable, she said, that she had never taken Physick, nor had been let Blood in the Course of her Life, and had 15 Children before the Death of King Charles the First. Friday 7. Night there was a Committee of Council at Whitehall, for hearing the Petitions of Thomas Max- well and Guy Ball, Esqrs; and five other of the Counsel- lors of the Island of Barbadoes. against Samuel Cox, Esq; President of the said Island, complaining of their being suspended the Council there, and praying ro be restor'd. Sir Wm Thompson and Mr. Bootle were of Council for the suspended Counsellors ; and Mr. Bampfield their Solicitor; and the Solicitor General, and Mr. Talbot were of Council for Mr Cox, and Mr. Tryon his Soli- citor .- And after a pretty long Debate, their Lordships took Time to give their Opinion in the Matter. The same Day Baron Solenthal the Danish Envoy to this Court, arriv'd here from Holland. Several Receivers General of the Counties are come to Town, to adjust their Accounts. They write from Holland, that the Swedish Plenipo- tentiaries were, arriv'd ar Neustedt, where they were favourably receiv'd, and that there appear'd great signs of an Accommodation between the Crowns of Muscovy and Sweden They write fmm Newport Pagnel in Buckingham- shire, that the Week before last at the Saracen's Head in that Town, one Griffith, a Surgeon from Chatham, was kill'd by Whitrong, Esq; of Staunton in that Neighbourhood, by the latter's ( upon some Words that pass'd between them) snatching the Sword of the former from off his Side and barbarously sheathing it in his Body. Letters from Dublin, of May 6. say, that 16 Male- I factorS factors broke out of Newgate, eight whereof were sometime ago Transported, but mutiny'd against the Ship's Crew, and put into Carrickfergus, where they were taken, and from thence transmitted here. We hear, three or of the said Felons are since taken. From on board the Sandwich at Copenhagen, April 29. O. S. The Fleet commanded by Admiral Norris arrived here yesterday in the Evening. In the Passage we had bad Weather, which separated three of our Ships from the rest ; but they are now come in hither. As the Admiral pass'd Gottemburg, he sent an Express to the King of Sweden, to acquaint His Majesty with his being come upon the Coast; and as he pass'd Elseneur, he received a Letter from his Swedish Majesty dated the 15th Instant. The Admiral designs to make use of the first Opportunity of Wind to proceed to the Island of Hano near Carelscroon, to join the Swedish Fleet. P. S. The Wind being just now at Eight o'Clock in the Evening come fair, we are getting ready to sail to mor- row Morning early. , Last Saturday in the Evening His Majesty made a Vi- sit to her Royal Highness the Princess, at Leicester House. Last Week M. Hopman, Resident from the Duke of Mecklemberg, return'd hither. Last Thursday Mr. R. Houlditch one of the late Di- rectors, presuming to enter Exchange. Alley, was pre- sently known by many of the Brokers and others con- cerned in Stocks, who with one Consent immediately cryed out Houlditch the Villain, and had it not been for two of his Friends, who conveyed him into a Coffee- House in Birchin- Lane, or else he would have met with the same Fate as the Bayliffs when they are taken by the Mint Citizens. We have Letters from Ostend which say, that four of the East India Ships belonging t0 that Company, are arrived with such a vast Quantity of Tea, as scarce the like ever known, as also Coffee, Silks, Callicoe, and o- ther Goods to a great Value His Majesty has been pleased to appoint Colonel Hart, ( late Governor of Maryland) Governor of the Leeward Islands ; Colonel Hamilton desiring Leave to return from that Government on account of his Health. Last Week one Anne Marchbank, alias Goubert, was committed to Newgate by the Right Honourable the Lord Townshend one of His Majesty's Principal Secretary's of State, for extorting Money from Persons on pretence of helping them to Places in the Govern- ment, and forging Letters, the better to carry on such vile Practices. Sir Robert Beachcroft, one of the Aldermen of this City, continues very ill of the Palsy at his House near Walthamstow. The William and Mary Yatcht is arrived at Rotter- dam, from whence, ' tis said, she is to bring over some Persons of Distinction.

The Transfer Books will be opened at the Bank on Monday. Wednesday and Friday, ( not being Holidays) in each Week. The Tranfer Books of both the African Companies are shut, in order for a dividend, after which, both Compa- nies will be united. Last Sunday one Emanuel Giles, a Drover, was com- mitted to Newgate by Justice Michell, for stealing from a Gentleman a Watch and Money. It seems his Wife another Woman make it their Business to pick up Men in Drink, and then carry them to a proper House, and when they have pick'd their Pockets, the Husband shoves them out of Doors in the dark, which hinders them in their Condition especially from knowing the House again Week William Burridge was committed to New- gate for robbing on the Highway. The Clergy of the Diocese of Peterborough, assem- bled at the Archdeacon's Visitation. having unanimously agreed to give their solemn Thanks to the Earl of Not- tingham, for his Defence of the Doctrine of the Blessed 1 in his Answer to Mr. Whiston's Letter; and the Rev.

The East India Company whose Sale of Goods was to be begun on Thursday, have adjourned the same to the 14th Instant. There is a Letter in Town from Mr. Russel, the late Sword Bearer, said to be dated at a tavern at the Hague, known by the Name of the Parliament of England the Design of which is to vindicate himself from the report ; that hath gone abroad, of his having received great Sums of Money at the Bank, that were supposed to be- long to a late Director of the South- Sea Company j whereas he affirms therein, that what he received was entirely his own Property, not was the Sum near so great as mention'd in several Papers Mr. Ferdinando Fairfax is made Cashier to Charles Stanhope, esq; Treasurer of the Chambers. On Tuesday last the Right Honourable the House of Lords heard a Cause that had been long depending be- tween the Loid Bidhop of Rochester, Appellant, and Dr. Friend, defendant, about the, Place on which the Dor- mitory belonging to Wedtminfter School shall be rebuilt, and their Lordships gave it in favour of the former.

Letters from Paris say, that on the 30th in the Afternoon, a Gentleman on Horseback passing thro the Street of St. Honore, near the Palace Royal, was got becween two Coaches, and judging both himself and his Horse in great Danger of being crush'd, threatned one of the Coashmen who would not stop his Horses ; for which . the Coachman whipt him on the Face ;' the Gentleman then drew his Sword, and run it through' the Coachman's Body, who in- stantly fell dead from his Box : After this, the Gentleman Went on unpursued, nor did the Person in the Coach endeavour to have him stopt. He is con- jectur'd to belong to the Gardes de Corps, altho' he had not upon him at that Time the Livery of those Troops. Harwich, May 16. we hear, that on Saturday night; last two Vessels struck on the Goodwin Sands; several Boats went immediately to their Relief, but we are told that both of them are lost, and all the Passengers and Men drowned.

The Poem which the Gentleman sent us from St. James's coming too late to our Hands, shall be inserted in our next, with the proper Emblems curiously engravd, according to the Design of the Subject. ADVERTISEMENT. help GRATIS for all Persons labouring under Venereal and other obstinate Distempers, for which SALIVATIONS and nausous Loads of Physick are now a Days so frequently prescribed, because supposed to be Cureable no other ways Asalivation if well performed, is doubtless a most excellent Method of Cure, to cleanse the Body of not only any Ve- nereal Taint, but of any other foul offending Humours. But the Misfortune is, that it is but rarely perform'd as it . ought, and therefore instead of proving a Cure, it many times turns to the Ruin of the poor unhappy Patient. For if after a Salivation is over, the Relicks and Effects of it are not well carried out of the Body, this Remedy many times proves worse than the Disease. And which is the true Reason indeed, that so many Persons having undergone a Salivation, are many times worse than before, by the pernicious Remains of the Mercury, which will lurk a long time after in the Body. To give therefore Assistance to Persons unhappily engag'd in any Degree of the Venereal Disease, as well as in several other obstinate Distempers, for which now- a- Days Salivations are so frequently prescribed. Notice is hereby given of a much more Easy Method of Cure, and which will be found fully to answer the End of a Salivation, without the Danger, fatigue, Expence, Confinement, and other Inconveniences of by a particular pleasant Drink, of which any Person may make themselves for a Penny or Three Half pence, what is frequently sold for 3 6 d. And therefore the Printed Receipt of it is given Gratis to any Person that will ask or send for It, at Mr. Garway's at the Royal- Exchange- Gate, which is on Cornhil Side : And at Mr. Gregg's, Bookseller next to Northum- berland- House at Charing: Cross in the Strand. By this drink it was that a certain eminent Physician, ( who de- clared himself an irreconcilcable Enemy to Salivation) cured great Numbers of deplorable, and even ROTTEN Objects, after they had been even salivated by others before, to no EfFect. His way was indeed, to take them into his House at 10 or 30 Guineas a Patient, because he kept his Drink as his Darling Se- cret, but This is here candidly published and given Gratis, for a General Good. The Amendment this Drink makes, is so visible and speedy, that none can be run to any great Expence, before they are con- vinced it will cure them ; and is a Method that may safely be used at any Season, by any Age, Sex, or Constitution. Not only for Venereal Cases, and to carry off the Effects, Re- mainder of Mercury, and a Salivation, after it Is over, and a Cure seemingly thereby performed, but also for the King's- Evil, and also Itchings. Pimples, Spots Blotches, Tettars, the Itch, - Scurf, Scabs, or Leprosy, from Surfeits, salt Foods, foul Scur- vies, or other corrupt Humours in the Blood, and have tried all things inwardly and outwardly in vain, and despair of ever being cured. The visible drying away of Breakings Out on the Skin upon only a few Times drinking it, and the Skin's becoming entirely cleared upon a short Continuance of it, as those that Drink it find, shew it to be particularly adapted by Nature for the Cure of cutaneous, foul, leprous, and Itchy Diseases, as well as the King's- Evil, and the worst Degree of a confirm'd Pox. So that what a Tedious, irksome, and Expensive Salivation ( to say nothing of its being a Remedy many times worse than the Disease) performs, exposing the Patient's Reputation. This Me- thod effects Privately and with Safety, without Trouble or Ex- pence, or even giving Suspicion to anyone. Being a Method of Cure that may be entirely depended on, to perform nor only ALL that a Salivation does, but with far greater Ease ( it requiring no Confinement,) and only with a Tri- fle, in a manner, of Expence. And even this too, so frugally to be laid out, as not to inco- mode any Person's Abilities, because they may make the Drink themselves, and so Husband their Money. So that by this Method they may have a perfect Cure, without a Salivation, altho' their Condition be very bad indeed. For this Drink mixes it self with, and works away gradually out of the Blood, any Itchy, Scorbutick, Mercurial. Venereal, and Pocky Taint, without Confinement or Disorder, leaving the Mass of Blood cleansed, sweetned, and purify'd. And this after a much safer manner, than by all the Salva- tions in the World , with neither the Expence, Hazard. Trou- ble, Confinement, or Loss of Time of it, and therefore the only proper Method, as well for those Persons whose Straitness of Circumstances cannot allow of Expence: As for those whose Business and Affairs will not admit of Confinement; nor Consti- tution the Taking of Physick. At the same Places is also Given Gratis the Printed Receipt of the Only Cordial Stomach BITTER perhaps in the whole World, and in imitation of which it is, that Stoughton's and such Bitters' are made : And by which Receipt Any Person may make for much less Money, what bought on has a Shilling for, and nothing near so good.
