At Wodnesfield, near Wolfrunc- Hampton, he obtained a great Victory over the Danes ; for two of their King's were slain, many of their Nobles, and an innumerable Company of their Commons, which caused him both to be feared and loved. His Sister El- fleda had very hard Travail of her first Child, therefore ever after she forbore the Nuptial Embraces, alledging it to be an over- foollsh pleasure which brought with it so great Pains And listing herself under Mars, she, in Person, assisted her Brother against the Danes, per. forming many manly Feats.

To be continu d; The Continuation of the Tryal of Col. John Lilburne. L. Col. Lilb. I think any legal Precedents ought to be imitated •, and besides, I think it unjust to be try d by Judges, who have been beating their Brains above six Months with my Adversaries, who ( being Parliament Men) are their Creators; and if I had thought you would have tied me up contrary to your Promise, I would have died in this very Court before I would have pleaded a Word to you ; so murder me ; take my Blood if you please. Ld Keble, This only shews the Rancour of your Heart; take heed your Heats do nor aggravate your Crimes to your own Ruin. Judge Thorpe. Mr. Lilburne, you seem'd to con- demn Mr. Attorney's speaking with me; but ( as Prose- cutor for the State) he must confer with us, and we with him. L. Col. Lilb. Ay, Sir, openly, but not in hugger- mugger ; and this is Law, or Sir Edw. Coke, in his 3 Instit. ch. High Treason, or Petit- Treason, hath pub- lish'd Falshoods, and the Parliament licens'd them. Ld. Keble. ' Twas not in hugger- mugger: Hear the Court, and carry your self within the Bounds of Rea- son andLaw; for we must order the Jury to be return'd. L. Col. Lilb. Sir, one Word, under Favour; is it just to allow Council to plead for an Estate, and deny it to enable me to plead for my Life ? Or is it so, for some of you Judg- es, to be seven Years ending a Suit forMoney or Land, and refuse me a few Days to think what to say in Defence of my Life ? Sir, these were pretended to be arbitrary ind tyrannical Prerogatives of the King's Will; but if they are not taken away by those who took away his Life, then only the Name is gone, but the Tyranny left. There is no Pretence to deny me Council; Judge Heath is my Authority, who ( I being try'd for the highest of Treasons, actual levying War against the King, where we fought almost to Handy gripes, to the Sword- point, and But end of our Muskets, and I taken in the Fact) yet granted it. Judge Thorpe. He knew't was no Treason; ' twas done by the Parliament's special Authority ; you had their Commission to justify you. L. Col. Lilb. The Letter of the Law was point- blank against me ; and if the Cavaliers had prevail'd, they might have hang'd me and you too for all your Parlia. ment- Commissions. Judge Jermin. They gave you more Favour than was your Right by Law ; because the like that was done to you might be done those Prisoners who were in the Par. liament's Power. Ld. Keble. Why did not they prosecute and proceed to Conviction and Execution ? L. Col. Lilb. Sir, under Favour; after I had pleaded to the Indictment, the Judge said, because you shall see Law and Justice is on the King's side against the Parlia- ment, the Court gives you a Week's Time to consult with Council what to plead for your Life ; and order'd off my Irons, and allow'd me Pen, Ink, and Paper. In this time, Sir, I writ to my Wife, and enclosed one Letter to the Speaker, and another to young Sir Henry Vane, and sent it by Captain Primrose's Wife ; and on my Wife's importunate Solicitations, the Declara. tion of Lex Talionis was prrcur'd, and my Wife brought the Substance of it in a threatning Letter from the Speaker, and deliver'd it to Judge Heath's own Hands, which stop'd any further Tryal, or I had been con. demn'd and executed. Ld Keble. Twas well for you, you had such fair Play; and you shall here have as fair Dealings as our Judgments and Conferences can lead us to, without granting more than the Law will allow- L. Col Lilb- Sir, by Law any Bystander may speak for a Prisoner when he perceives things urg'd contrary to Law : I desire this Gentleman, my Solicitor, may speak two or three Words. Mr. Sprat. ' Tis easy to prove the whole Indictment to be Matter of Law Judge jermin What impudent Fellow is this that dare speak without being call'd ? Ld- Keble. Mr. Lilburne, I promise you when there comes Matter of Law, your Lawyer shall speak, but he cannot he allow'd before L. Col. Lilb. Sir, if the fact be prov'd, it is a Ques- tion, whether the Words be Treason in Law, and whe" ther they be lightly alledg'd in the lndictment, as t0 Matter, Time and Place. Ld. Keble. We know not whether the Law you fup_ pose will arise till the Words be prov'd. L. Col. Lilb. You promis'd not to take Advantage my Ignorance, and now hold me to a single, naked PleaJ which is worse than the worst of the Prerogatives in the King's Life time, though you declar'd against them. Lord, deliver me from such Justiciaries. Ld. Keble. You were bid to forbear Reproaches, and act rationally, not break into Extravagances, and Bitter- ness of Spirit. L. Col. Lilb. I look upon my self as a dead Man, for want of Council to help my Ignorance; and if you' will not allow it, I will go no further, if I die for it. Judge Jermin: You have trangress'd the Laws of Eng. land by not holding up your Hand, which I never before knew an Englishman refuse. We are on our Oaths, and will discharge our Consciences; and we have told you what the Law is, yet you will not be satisfied. L. Col. Lilb. Sir, my Prosecutors have had a long time to consult with Council, yea, and with your selves, to contrive Tricks and Snares to destroy me ; and I have had no time for Defence against such potent Malice: You your self said the Law of God is the Law of Eng. land ; act by that; do as you would be done to. Another Judge- The Laws of God, of Reason, and of the Land, are join'd in the Laws you shall be try'd by. . Judge Thorpe. For my particular Part, I never saw your indictment before this time, nor ever was at any Consultation about it. L. Col. Lilb. You might have seen the Substance many Months ago, and most of the Judges in England have had Meetings with Mr. Solicitor at Serjeant's- Inn about it. Judge Jermin. ' Twas requisite ( from the Importance of the OfFence) such Meetings should be, that it might be grounded as the Law directs. I. Col. Lilb. If you are resolv'd to destroy me by the same Prerogative Nebuchadnezzar did Daniel, I am as willing to die as he was to be thrown into the Lion's Den; it is in vain to make more Words. Ld. Keble. Take care the Sparks of your Venom do not burst out to declare you Guilty without further Proof. L. Col. Lilb. I know the worst, I can but die; and I have liv'd not to fear it- Mr- Att. Gen- What is consonant to the Laws of England, neither is, nor will be denied Mr. Lilburne; but what he now desires, viz. Council, a Copy of the Indictment, and longer time, is what no one that under- stands the Law ever ask'd ; and if granted to him, ought not to be denied to any Man for Felony or Trea- son, so there would be no End of Criminal Tryals ; and of what dangerous Consequence such a Precedent may be, I leave your Lordship and the Court to judge. My Lords, I desire Mr. Lilburne may be us'd with all just and legal Proceedings, and I desire the same for the Commonwealth; and, as Mr. Lilburne has pleaded, that you immediately proceed to Tryal. L- Col- Lilb- If the Law of England be founded up. on the Laws of God and Reason, ' tis not to lay Snares to take away your Neighbour's Life, as trying me upon Forms without help of Council, must be; Besides, Sir, for some of you to reproach me with the Name of no- torious Traitor, when I am as innocent in the Eye of the Law ( till I am legally convicted) as any of those that call me so: Do not blemish me in the Ears of the Auditors- Mr. Att- Gen. If Mr. Lilburne be innocent, P put it to a final Issue, and let the World judge. Ld. Keble- The Law of England is the most tender of any in the World : You have been found Guilty uy twenty one Men, upon their Oaths and Consciences, yet this is not thought sufficient, but you are to have twelve understanding Men of your Neighbourhood to hear all over again before they pass upon your Life, and accord- ing to the Rules of this Law we proceed- To be continu'd. . ( 2 0 3 5 ) A Poem on her Royal Highness's Picture, the Princess of Wales; drawn by Sir Godfrey Kneller. Inscrib'd to the Rt- Hon- Robert Walpole, Esq; By T. Harris- WHEN sacred Wales, her Picture we behold, Art we admire, and Nature's curious Mould Ten thousand lovely Charms at once surprize, Which strongly force their Brightness on our Eyes. With deep Regard, we view each painted Grace ; But Heav'n lies open in her real Face ! For Oh.' What Artist e'er cou'd draw so well As Nature, when contending to excell ? Her Riches she bestows on ev'ry Part, And shows her wond'rous Tryumphs over Art: Heaven's Work, before the Painter's we prefer, Since it design'd its Master- piece in her- God, whose Resemblance in each Face we view, Ne'er his own Picture more exactly draw ; Since more than Mortal her bright Charms appear, Which show below, above what Angels are ! Gladly let Poets then their Tribute bring To her, and at her lovely Altar sing, For if their Songs they wou'd immortalize, Let'em proclaim the Glories of her Eyes 1 Poets, in Fame's eternal Annals dear, Grow more renown'd, the more they sing of her ; And tho' her killing Beauties, far surpass All, that ev'n Paint or Poetry express ; Kneller, shall Time and Envy too, survive, For by the Picture, shall the Painter live.' Friday 7 Night Morning arrived at Court Major Finboe Express from Stockholm^ with the welcome News of the Conclusion of the Peace between Sweden and Muscovy, • which was sign'd by the Plenipotentiaries on both Sides the 31st of August last, O. S. An Account of the Disposal of the Tickets in the Lot- for 700000 1. on Malt 1721. Tickets. The whole Number of Tickets in the faid 7 Lottery is \ Whereof disposed of as follows. Tickets.

The Lady Viscountess Molyneux is brought to Bed of a Son. the Abbot de Merinville, who some time since fled privately from Paris, with Madamoiselle d' I'Aigle, a young Lady of noble Extraction in Normandy, as the French News inform'd us, is arrived with the said young Lady, in this City, and they have since made a publick Recantation cf the Errors of the Romish Church, at the French Church in the Savoy. A curious Statue of Edward Earl of Clarendon, Lord High Chancellor of England, was sent down to Oxford Yesterday Morning, to be set up in that University, where his excellent History was Printed. ' Tis reported, that an Ostend Vessel, having on board 11 Frenchmen, who had escap'd from Toulon, came into Dover- Road Sunday 7 Night, and attempted to land there, but that the Magistrates having some Intimation of it, oblig'd them to keep off, and to go to the pro. Place to perform Quarantine. Daniel Poulteney, Esq; one of the Lords Commissi- oners for Trade and Plantations, is made one of the Lords of the Admiralty, in the room of the Ld. Visc. Torrington ; and Sir John Hobart succeeds Mr Poulte- ney in his former Post. Mr. John Morter is appointed Surveyor of Houses w the County of Norfolk, in the Room of Mr. William Wh° hath resign'd that Employment. We hear his Majesty has been pleas'd to give Orders to the Treasury for the taking out a considerable Num- ber of the Lottery Tickets of the York Buildings Com- pany. Friday 7. Night there was a General Council at White- hall, wherein circular Letters were order d tobe dispatched, for putting the Quarentine Act strictly in Execution on the Coast. Last Saturday the Earl of Cadogan went to Richmond to take his leave of their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess, and dined On board the William and Mary Yatcht at Gravesend at three in the Afternoon, sail toward Holland. The Lady March, his Lordship's Daughter, is gone over with him, in order to meet her Spouse who having finish'd his Travels is returning Home, His Majesty's Ship, the Hampshire is order'd out for a Fortnight's Cruise in quest of the Turkish Rover, or Pirate ship which lately attack'd a Danish Merchant Ship near the Lands End, as mention'd in a former Paper. Letters from Tetuan say, that a few Days' after Captain Stewart, his Britannick Majesty's Plenipotentiary, was arrived there, and had dispatch'd the Courier with the Ratification of the Treaty of Peace, a Sallee Cruizer brought in hither two British Merchant Ships, one laden at Lisbon, and bound for London ; the other from Lon. don, bound to the Canaries : Upon which, the British Ministers refused to set out for Mequin ez, till those two Ships were set at Liberty ; but after Much Solicitation, he had the Satisfaction of procuring their Releasement, together with a Punishiment inflicted upon the Cap- tain of the Cruizer, who was turned out of his Ship, and received 500 Bastinadoes. Upon Captain Stew- art's Arrival at Mequinez, he was admitted to an Au- dience of the Emperour of Morocco, who presented him with nine British Masters of Ships, but gave him very little Hopes of procuring the Liberty of the rest of the Captives; however, the British Minister founds Means to induce the Emperour to send for him a second Time, when ordering all the Captives to be brought before him, he presented them to Captain Stewart, telling him he was at Liberty to return with them when he pleased into Christendom, at the same time ordering the Bashaw to further their Imbarkation as much as possible, with, out Loss of Time : Accordingly they were immediately dispatched to this Place ; Captain Stewart continued some Days longer at Mequinez, to make the usual Pre- sents, but is now here, waiting for the Bashaw, who is daily expected to give Orders for the Embarkation of the Captives. The Letter which the King of Spain wrote lately to his most Christian Majesty bears Date the 3d In. stant at the Efcurial ; its Substance is as follows, viz. I Account it the highest Pleasure, as well as the greateft Happiness, that the first Letter I sent to your Majesty should be upon a Subject so corres- pondent to the Ties of Blood which unites us, and the sincere Affection which I bear for your Majesty ; the Sentiments suitable to my Birth, abiding with me constantly from my Infancy, and those gra- cious Words, full of Goodness and Wisdom, which the late King my Grandfather was pleas'd to mention to me at our parting, are still deeply im- pressed in my Heart, and ever begetting ardent Wishes ' for confirming and strengthening by new Bonds that ' strict Union and Friendship which ought perpetually ' to subsist in our Royal House. God Almighty, there. ' fore, seeming to point out the Way to that Felicity, ' by having given me a Daughter of Years suitable to ' those of your Majesty, I hope to crown the good Pur- ' poses of the King my late Grandfather, and those also ' of the Divine Providence, gratifying also at the same time, my own Tenderness, by offering to your Majesty ' in Marriage, as I now do, the Infanta, my Daughter, ' and to send her into France, to be there Educated in ' Principles suitable to the State to which she may be ' call'd, and such as may accomplish the earnest Desires ' I shall always have for your Majesty's Felicity, and ' the Advantages of that Kingdom in which I was born, ' and has so greatly contributed to support me on the ' Throne on which it has pleased God to place me. ' I hope your Majesty will receiVe with Pleasure, a Proposal oposal of this Nature ; a Proposal so agreeable to e friendship and Consanguinity between us, and which gives me the greatest Joy imaginable, as it ena- bles me to testifie the Sincerity of my Affection to- wards your Majesty. Signed, PHILIP- ' The State Lottery will begin to be drawn the second , y of October next. On Thursday the 7th Instant, Mr. Rich. Clay, jun. l. man, was marry'd at Lincoln's- Inn Chappel, to a daughter of Joshua Lomax, Esq; Member of Parlia- ment for St. Albans, with whom we hea » r he had a For- tune of Four or Five Thousand Pounds. Last Week the Bedford Stage- Coach, in which were two Gentlemen, and four Women Passengers, was robbed about 10 a Clock in the Morning, within four Miles of that Town, by one Highwayman, who took their Money, Watches, Rings, & c. and then went and committed other Robberies upon the same Road. They write from Horsham in Sussex of the 13th In. stant, that Lieutenant Jekyll of Brigadier General Grove's Regiment, with a Party of Grenadiers, took near Burwish ( 40 Miles fiom that Place) the chief Ring, leader of the Owlers nam'd Gilb Tompkin ; and pursu- ing one Jervis, another noted Owler, with several of his Accomplices, came up with them ; upon which Jer- Vis fired his Pistols, and retired with his Men to a Wood ; whereupon some of the Grenadiers were order'd to fire likewise, but the Smuglers being very well mounted got off, and Lieutenant Jekyll continued to pursue them all that Day and Night, and the next Morning surrounded a Lane at Nutly, 20 Miles from Horsham, where he took Robt. Serjeant, Wm. Blackman, Wm. Kenward , and Thomas Highsted. with five Horses and all their Ropes and Running Tackle, which he carry'd with him, and the Men were committed to Horsham Goal. ' Tis said the York Buildings Company have desired Leave of the Lord Mayor to draw their Lottery in Guild, hall, as soon as the drawing cf the Government's Lot- tery is finish'd. On Saturday last Mr. George Shipton, a Custom- house Officer, seiz'd in a Barn at Upton in Essex, 39 Bales of India Silks, amounting ( as ' tis said; to the Value of about 3 or 40°° 1. . The King of Spain hath establish'd certain Regu- lations, the better to privent the Contagion , which rages in France, from spreading it self into his Domi. nions ; which Regulations the Ships of all Nations Trading to Spain are made liable to, and are as fol- lows, viz. That the Master, Commander, or the Person taking Care of every Ship, do, after clearing, take from the proper Officers of the Customs a Certificate of the Lading: That each Ship do carry a Bill of Health from the chief Magistrates of the Port, or Place of Lading : That the Master, Commander, or other Person taking Charge of each Ship, do, at his Arrival in any Port of Spain, declare upon Oath, being there requir'd so to do, that the Voyage hath been directly pursued ; that no Exchange' hath been made of any Goods or Merchan. dize belonging to, or taken out of other Ships, and that the Ship did not Anchor in any suspected Port during her Voyage. The Conge d'Elire is order'd to pass the Great Seal, for electing to the Bishoprick of Hereford the Rt. Rev. the lord Bishop of Bangor. The Rev. Dr. Reynolds, Dean of Peterborough, and one of the King's Chaplains, is nominated to the See of Bangor.

Th: Rt. Hon. the Ld. Herbert, Eldest Son of the Earl of Pembroke. Is appointed Captain of the 1st Troop of Guards, in the room of the Duke of Montague. Last Monday died the Rt. Hon. and Rt. Rev. Nath. Crew, Lord Crew, and Lord Bishop of Durham, at his Seat at Stene, in the County of Northampton, in the 88th Year of his Age He was consecrated Bishop of Oxford in r< 57r, anfl translated to Durham 1674 He was of the Privy Council to King Charles, and K James the 2d ; and was, in the Reign of the latter, one of the Eccle- siastical Commissioners. In the Reign of Queen Anne, he was Ld. Lieutenant and Vice Admiral of the Coun- C 2036 ) ty Palatine of Durham. His Lordship's first Wife was Penelope, Daughter to Sir Philip Frowde of the County of Kent ; and his second, Dorothy, Daughter to Sir Wil- liam Forster of Balmsborough Castle, in the County 0f Northumberland ; but by neither had any Issue- The Right Reverend Dr. William Talbot, Lord Bishop of Salisbury . Dean of the Royal Chappel, is to be tran- slated to the See of Durham ; and as we are credibly in- form'd, the Right Reverend Dr. Richard Willis, Bishop of Gloucester and Lord Almoner, will be translated to the Diocese of Salisbury. It is also said that the Re- verend Dr. Wilcox, who attended His Majesty to Hano- ver last Year, will be made Bishop of Gloucester. There is Advice, that the Earl of Rothes, who had been dangerously ill in Scotland, is in a fair Way of Re- covery. ' On Monday the 4th Troop of Guards march d out of Town for some Parts of Surrey and Berkshire, for the Benefit of the Air, and Forrage for the Horses- ~ Mr. READ, BY reading your Weekly Journal, I observed that you have been very active in expofing the detestable practices of such as both wish and endeavour the De- struction of their native Country, and the subversion of the present Government; and have likewise said much of the impious Practices of the South- Sea Managers. After this, I think I may venture to tell you of another Party of Men, whose Practices are like to be of as dange. rous a Consequence, and may involve the Nation in as fatal Calamities if not timely restrain'd, and that is the frequent and notorious Practice of Smugling, which is got to that head, as makes it of the highest Concern to the Publick, to put a stop to it one way or other ; we have now a good and wise Parliament, which one wou'd think might easily strengthen the Laws in that Case made and provided ; which makes it the stranger to all reasonable Men that nothing has been done effectu- ally to stop this pernicious Practice ; nay, tho' at this Time we run the greatest Hazard of having the Plague imported upon us, without which we are at this Time likely to become the most flourishing trading Nation in the World, since it is evident that France by that dieadful Scourge has lost all its Commerce : But I will wave this, and shew, that the Smugling Trade is of its self enough to undoe us. I am assur'd there is a Village in Sussex, about 20 Miles from the Sea, where there has not gone less than 5009 I. worth of Brandy at prime Cost, in about a Year; what then is run thro' the whole Kingdom, and if it be right French, as themselves say, how many Pounds of our trading Money must go to France in one Year, enough in time to bring England to extream Poverty, which will not fall on a few Men only, but on the Nation in general ; But say it is not all French, as some think, but English carry'd to Sea; that is a Cheat which Justice and the Parliament ought to re- dress and Punish, and let it be which it will, 90 Parts in 100 are spent in unprofitable Uses in Drunkenness, Riot, and Excess, to the Dishonour of God and the Dis- truction of the Subject. ' Tis true His Majesty has ear- nestly requir'd those in Power to put the Laws strictly in force against Vice, Immorality, and Prophaneness, but we see none that will set their Hands heartily to the Plough to Effect so good a Work, tho' God and the King Command it, which is a Scandal to a Christian Nation. But to proceed, such Men as encourage the Consumption of Foreign Commodites, are void of com- mon Reason, and but little consult their Countries good or Interest, for if we neglect spending our own Produce, we shall in a little time bring that Land which is now rented at 100 1 a Year to 60 or 70, and the En- couragers of Foreign Commodities to Ruin and Beg- gary. And farther I dare affirm, that these Brandy- Run- ners are more pernicious and hurtful to the Publick than the common Robbers on the Highway, for the one hurts only here and there a Man, but the other the whole Na. tion. The former spends what he gets in the Nation, but the other sends our Money into a Foreign Country ; and I cannot see why one Crime shou'd be immediate Death, and not the other, I cannot see, but that it wou'd agreeably enough suit our Excellent Constitution to make Smugling Death, especially at this time. We read in the News from France, that some Soldiers only for kill- ing a straggling Sheep or two, where there was danger of the Plague, weie buried alive with the Sheep, and I cannot this Kingdom where I have formerly had the Honour to serve him.
