C ' 953 ) THE Weekly Journal: OR, British Gazetteer. SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1721 Being the freshest advices Foreign and Domestick. LETTERS from Lublin , give an Account, that the Turks continue building a Bridge upon the Danube, and fortifying Choczim, having levelled a Hill which was before the Castle, and made use of the Earth in raising a thick Rampart quite round it. The Imperial Ambassa- dor has made the utmost ln- stances for renewing a Trea. ty between the Emperor and this Republick, but hither- to without appearance of Success, the greatest part of the Nobility seeming not to be forward as to a Reli- ance either upon the King or the Emperor, but ever keeping awake their Apprehensions about a future Suc- cession. ITALY. ^ , , Genoa, Jane 7. Out Regency having answered the Commodore of the English Squadron, that the Senate will take Care to represent to his Britannick Majesty their Reasons in regard to the noble Gustiniani ; that Commodore is preparing to sail back to Port- Mahon. Venice, June 14. Letters from Constantinople of the nth of May, say, that the Fortifications of all the Frontier Places were repairing, towards which Troops are marching, but only by way of Precaution, and not with Design to break with any Christian Potentate. SWEDELAND. Stockholm, June n. On the 9th Instant an Express arrived here from Neustad, with Advice, that M. Otter- man was arrived there, and that the Conferences were begun. That Express has brought important Dispatches ; and ' tis generally reported, that the Peace is near being concluded, tho' ' tis assur'd on the other hand, that the Czar insists upon keeping all Livonia : Those Advices add, that M Osterman has declar'd that the late Descent on the Coast of Gaffle was executed Without the Czar's Knowledge. M. Finch, the British Envoy, being return- ed Yesterday from the Fleet, ' tis therefore imagin'd it is not yet sailed from Elsenab; and that the last Dis- Patches from Neustad will, very probably, alter the In- structions already given to the British and Swedish Ad- mirals. The King is almost perfectly recovered from his late Indisposition. DENMARK, Hambourg, June 24. Advices from Stockholm say, that the last Express dispatched from the Plenipotenti- aries at Neustad, has brought the Proposals of Peace made by the Russians ; and that the Senate immediately assembled to take them under Consideration. In the meantime, the Russians continue their Depradations a- long the Coast of the Bothnick Gulf, pretending them- selves to be auxiliary Troops in the Duke of Holstein's Service; those Advices add, that the Duke has sent four Articles to the Senate, which he insists to have complied with on the Part of Sweden, viz. I. ' That t he be declared preemptive Heir to the Crown of Swe- den.' II. That in case the present Queen dies with- ( Price Three Half- pence ) out Issue, the immediate Succession shall devolve upon ( him and his Heirs. Ill Thac he be permitted to re- side at Stockholm, and have a Revenue allow'd him suitable to his Rank. And IV. That the Articles 4 aforementioned be assured to him under a sufficient ' Guarantee.' It is reported that the Muscovites have, sent a considerable booty of Cattle, Iron, and Prisoners to Finland from Sweden, and even threaten to revisit the latter with a greater Number of Forces than those they brought with them at the Time of their late De- scent; nevertheless it is generally taken for granted here, that the Peace between Sweden and Muscovy, is con- siderably advanced. FRANCE. Paris, June 2j. A Courier dispatch'd from Rome to the Pope's Nuncio here, who arrived on the 20th In- ft ant, has brought Letcers, which advise, that the Car- dinals Rohan and Bissy made their Publick Entry into Rome on the nth of this Month, which was so mag- nificent, that the like had not been seen there for a long while before. The same Courier has likewise brought the Bull for a Jubilee, which the Pope desires may be published as soon as possible. IRELAND; Dublin, Tune 10. The Pedestal, on which is to be fix'd the Effigy of his Majesty King George, is preparing With all Expedition. We have lately had the following Verses publish'd here.

Warsaw, June 7. r GREAT BRITAIN. The Continuation of the Tryal of Archbishop Laud. And as a further Proof of his Enmity to Parliaments, some marginal Notes of Sir Benjamin Rudyard's Speech in Parliament were produc'd: The next Instance was, that he found fault with Eight Bills that were brought into the House : That he had Spies to give him an Ac- COunt of the Election of Parliament. Men in Gloucester- shire ; for Proof whereof they produc'd a Letter from one Allibone to Dr. Heylin. Then a Passage in his Diary was read, which he says he supposes was design'd rather to expose him, than make good the Charge ; viz 27 0ct. 1640. Going into my upper Study to send away some Manuscripts to Oxford, I found my Picture fallen down upon the Face, and lying on the Floor; I am almost every Day threatned with my Ruin. God grant this be no Omen of it. Then another Passage in his Diary Was read, the last Words whereof highly reflected upon their Lordships Justice, as was urg'd; ( viz.) So I see what Justice I may expect, since here's a Resolution taken, not only before my Answer, but before my Charge is brought up against me. And a Paper was produc'd against him, wherein he says, that Magna Charta had an obscure Birth, and was foster'd by an ill Nurse: And they concluded with a Dream which they said his Grace had ; ( viz ) That he shou'd come to greater Pre- ferment in the Church, and Power in the State, than any Man of his Birth and Calling had done before, but in the End he should be hang'd. And the Earl of Pem- broke depos'd in the House, that his Grace told him, he had such a Dream. Whereupon Mr. Nicholas said, the first part of his Dream had prov'd true, to the great Hurt both of Church and State, and he hop'd their Lordships would make good the latter, and hang him. To this Article his Grace answer'd, there was no par- ticular Fault found with the Speeches he made, or cor. rected for the Duke of Buckingham, when he stood im- peach'd ; but only that he, being a Member of the Lord's House, and in that respect a Judge, became his Advocate: And he conceiv'd, that since nothing was done against Law, it was not criminal for one Friend to assist another in such Circumstances, and he was per- suaded many in either House on the like Occassons had done the same —— As to the King's Speeches he was charg'd with he acknowledg'd he drew them, but that he follow'd his Instructions close, and submitted it to their Lordships if they could be made the Foundation of such a Charge - That as to the Paper Mr. Bland depos'd Sir Sackvile Crowe shew'd him, his Grace protested he never gave Sir Sackvile any such Paper, and the Truth of it was very much to be suspected, be- cause Bland depos'd that it was sign'd W. Laud, and he was then Bishop of St. David's, and never writ his Name otherwise than Guil Meneven, at that time : And that the first Additional Article ( wherein the same Fast is charg'd as in the Paper Bland mentioned) is as inconsist- ent as Bland's Testimony; for in one part it says, that these Propositions had caus'd the Parliament to be dissolv'd, and within three Lines it says, these Propositi- ons were deliver'd to the Duke of Buckingham after that Parliament was dissolv'd That the Words privata Malitia in his Diary cou'd not relate to the Parliament, but to some private Men in that Parliament, and if there were some in the Parliament, who did him ill Of- fices on a private Disgust, it was no new thing: That as to Mr. Nicholas's Conceit, that his Grace had a Hand in the Proclamation for calling in the Remon. strance, because his Preferments follow'd so soon after- wards, it was by his own Confession four or five Years afterwards before he was prefer'd — That as to the Paper, which was call'd Reasons against Parliament; it appear'd to contain some Hopes and Fears which were conceiv'd of a Parliament, and not Reasons against them ; that the Parliament was not then in being, and it was no uncommon thing to deliberate about the Expe- diency of calling one ; besides his Grace was but au Ama- nuensis at that times, and not the Author of those Hopes and Fears, tho'_ he was commanded to give his Opinion indeed as a Privy Counfellor, which he could not in Duty refute; however that those Hopes and Fears related but to thai one Parliament, and the Hopes pre. vailed, and the Pailiamdnt sat — As to the Note in his Diary, That such a Parliament fought his Ruine, ic was a much better Argument to prove the Parliament an Enemy to him, than he to them. As to the Words reducing and gaining, which he seem'd to dislike in Sir Benjamin Rudyard's Speech ; he thought his ob- jecting to a Phrase or two in a Member's Speech would never prove him an Enemy to Parliaments. And he was still of Opinion, that where a King labour'd to gain upon the Liberty or Property of the Subject, or the sub- jects in Parliament labour'd to gain from the just Power and Prerogative of the King, the Publick cou'd not thrive the mean while That it was not prov'd he dislik'd any Bills that were brought in, however every Member had a Privilege of objecting to Bills before they were pass'd ; That as to his drawing the Answer to the Remonstrance, as was press'd again, he did it by Command, and agreeable to" his Instructions. And as to the Particulars urg'd to be obnoxious, ( viz) That they fought to fill our Peoples Hearts, more than our Ears ; and that they swell'd to that Bigness, ' till they break themselves ; neither of these ExpressionS struck at the Rights or Privileges of Parliaments: And for the Remonstrance, whether that tended he appeal'd to the World. Another Particular complain'd of in the An- swer was the Excusing of Ireland, and the Growth of Popery there, of which the Remonstrance complain'd. But his Grace observ'd that the State of Religion in Ire- land was much the same in the Reigns of Queen Eliza- beth and King James, as it was then : That in those Times they had their Romish Hierarchy, submitted to their Government, paid their Tythes, absented them- selves from the Protestant Churches, and rebell'd under Tyrone on pretence of Religion; and he did not see they had done more in this Reign : And tho they had shewn that Instructions were given to his Grace of the Growth of Popery in Ireland, yet these were all since the Answer to rhe Remonstrance : And as to the Letter produc'd from the Earl of Strafford, and order'd to be communicated to his Grace, wherein was this Expression, That in order to mould the Lower House, and govern them the Better, he had got them chosen of an equal Number of Protestants and Papists; he cou'd not help what the Earl would write, and it was not sent to him neither, and theie were several other Passages in the Letter, which occasion'd its being communicated to him. As to his concerning himself in the Election in Glouces- tershire, there was no Proof of it, but a Letter from one Allibone, a Stranger to his Grace, to Dr. Heylin: And if Dr Heylin communicated this to his Grace, to shew what Practices had been us'd, he saw no great matter in it. As to his looking on the Fall of his Picture, as omi. nous ( knowing at the same time how many ways his Ruine was sought; he apprehended it without Passion, and wish'd, looking up to God, that it might not prove ominous to him. As to that Passage, So I see what Justice I may expect, See. it was introduc'd with an if such a Parliament Man told him true : And he must still say, if a Resolution was taken to condemn him be- fore any Charge brought in, Or Answer made, he might be allow'd to say what follow'd. That there was no Proof that the Expression, That Magna Charta had an obscure Birth, & c. was his own: And indeed the Ex- pression was to be found in several Law Books. As to the pretended Dream, he said though the Earl Earl of Pembroke had taken the Truth of it upon his Honour, his Grace never had any such Dream; and when the Thing was first printed by Prynn, he com. plain'd to his Majesty of it ; and that Prynn he found had the Story from one Bidger, a zealous Fanatick; who tho' he married a near Relation of his Grace's, was much nearer to Mr. Prynn in Affection, than to his Grace in Alliance : He said, he had not forgotten the Prediction of our Saviour, That in the World we should be sure to meet with Affliction ; nor his Prayer, Father forgive these Men for they not what they do ; and con- cluded with a Prayer, that God wou'd bless both King and People, submitting himself to his Divine Will. Before his Grace was taken from the Bar, he mov'd, that he might have a Day assign'd him to make a Recapi- tulation of the whole Proceeding ; and that his Coun- cil might speak to the Points of Law.

Last Week the Corps of a young Lady who had been interr'd some Time, was taken up by her Father and Mother, who haa been long in Search after her . She had been unhappily debauch'd by her own Sisters Hus- band, and was mention'd in the Publick Papers some Time ago, to be stolen away from her Friends at Hack- ney • and she died in Childbed at a House in Tavistock- Court, from whence she was bury'd under the Name of Susannah Stephens The Minister, as he was saying the Office of Burial, had a Hidden Thought darted into his Mind, that this might be the unfortunate young. Lady of Hackney, whose Story he had heard a Day or two before from the Rev Dr. Moss, and upon this SuspiCion, he wrote instantly to her Friends, and the Matter was discover'd. The Body, after it was taken up, was sent down into the Country, to be deposited in the Vault of the Family, where her Brother was carry'd about a Fortnight before ; and who tis thought, broke his Heart with Grief at this sad Accident: And the Condition of the afflicted Parents is rather to be imagin'd than describ'd. SIR. June 20 1721 THERE is a Family of Converted Jews, and Baptized in Town, of the Church of England, of many Years Conversion, as appears by good Certificates of their true Behaviour ever since, who are reduced to the last Extremities, by Losses and Accidents, whose, distresses are so pressing, that it is Matter of Wonder that they are fallen from Affluence, and from being sub- stantial House- keepers, into their present Condition; ( Job, Chap. 1. Verse 21 ) these not only Sacrificed a com- fortable Subsistance for the common Cause of Christiani- ty, but considerable Fortunes, and did not their internal Supports exceed their outward Circumstances, they would be, of all People, most miserable. Formerly great care was taken for the Converted Jews, but how are perish- tng ( Gal. Chap 6 verse 10) 1 think fit in Christian Charity to declare this, to prevent the Ruin and reproach of the Converts eo the Church of Eng. land : They have, nothing to help themselves In then advanced Age but the Relief of good and Pious Person, for which they are and would be very thanful, till some care is taken for the Converted Jews, & c.

Andrew Kingston, Com- mander of the Lloyd Galley, carrying 12 Guns and 18 Men, who sail'd in February last from London for the Island of Jamaica. SIR, St Christophers, April 24. 1721. IAm sorry to give you this Account of my great Misfortune in this Voyage : On the 16th of March, I made the Island of Deziada about 11 a- clock at Noon, and soon after f saw two Sail standing the same Course as I did. I made the best of my Way from them ; but about eight at Night they came along Side of me : I was then about four Leagues from Antegoa ; they fir'd at me, being Pyrates, one a Ship of 36 Guns, 250 Men and 50 Negroes, the other a Brigantine of 18 Guns, 46 Men and 50 Negroes; these I could not withstand. They had been but two Days upon that Station before they saw me, and are both under the Command of John Roberts. They carry'd me into Bermuda, there kept me five Days, and what of the Cargo was not fit for their Service, they threw over board : They took away most of my Rigging and Sails, all my Anchors, Blocks, Pro- visions, Powder, small Arms, & c. and 12 of my Men, and then carry'd me to the Northward, that 1 might not come into these Islands to give an Account of them ; and the ift of this Instant they left me in a very sad Con- dition. The next Day I met a French Pyrate Sloop of six Guns and 63 Men ; they took my Ship from me with the rest of my Men, and most of the Passengers, and put me, my Boy and seven Passengers into a Sloop they had taken about six Hours before: That Sloop landed me upon the Virginia Islands, where I staid five Days before I could get a Passage 10 this Place. In coming hither I met the Rose Man of War, and gave the Commander an Account of these Pyrates, who went in search of the French men, but could not hear nothing of them; so that after having been eleven Days on board the Rose, I was landed here. I hope the Ships bound from London to Jamaica soon after me, may escape the said Roberts; for he design'd to keep that Station, and destroy all the Ships that come to these islands which may fall in his Hands. They . left me without any Manner of Cloathing ; and Roberts brought my Brother ( chief Mate) to the Gears, and whipt him within an Inch of his Life, by reason he had conceal'd two Gold Rings in his Pocket. This is the dismal Account I am to give of this Voyage. Yours, & c. A. Kingston. P. S. At this Place are several Pyrates in Prison, which run away with Merchant Ships Boats from An. regoa, and taken at Santa Cruz an Island not inhabited: Its thought they will not be hang'd, which makes a great many Pyrates about the Islands. Yesterday arrived a Mail from Holland. Petersburgh, June 6. HERE has been a Report of a Conspiracy a- gainst the Czar, but without any Foundation, and several of those who have spread this Story, have been arrested, among others, M Heyderrick, Pro- thonatory of the College of Justice, a Native of Saxony, and who is accus'd of other unwarrantable Correspon- dencies. Prince Menzicoff who was come from Croonslot to this Place on this occasion, it return'd, to hasten the De. parture of the Fleet. Hamburgh, June 28. Since the Arrival of the Czar at Revel, ' tis said he has given Orders to prepare a grand Transport for a new Descent in Sweden: His Czarish Majesty continues to have at Heart the Interests of the Duke of Holstein, who we are assur'd persists in sending his Plenipotentiaries to Neustad Rome, June 8 Yesterday a seCret Congregation was held at the House of Cardinal Paolucci, whereat the Chevalier de St. George assisted incognito, after which Dispatches were sent to Madrid and Parma. The next Day, M. Blauchin., Domestick Prelate to the Pope, and Counsellor to the Chevalier, reported the Result of this Congregation to the Pope, some say it relates to Cardinal Alberoni, others to the Chevalier, and that the King of Great- Britain demands that no Prince, in Al- liance with him, shall give him Residence or Succour, and that this Affair Embarasses the new Pope, where to find him a Retreat if he goes from Rome, as in all appearance he will be oblig'd to do Hague, June 30. Our Advices from Provence say, That the Country call'd the Gevandan,. was actually in- fested with the Plague ; that two or three small Towns had been Burnt, to prevent its spreading, and that near 200 People have been starv'd to Death, for want of ne- Cessary Food in those Towns.
