Dr. Tillotson) a Man had need of more than common Secu- rity of the Skill and Honesty of those. to whom he perfectly returns his Judgment: For he that trusts the care of his Soul with other Men, and at the same Time, by irrevocable Deed settles his Understanding upon them-, lays too great a Temptation before them, to seduce and damn him for their own Ends. And methinks, the very eager Desire which those Jacobite Priests discover in their Endeavours to obtain such an absolute Power over our Will ; should make all Men of common Sense, suspect ( at least) that their Designs were evil; and the more because we see and know what a wicked Use the Romish Priests have and do still make of the like Power over their Laity. I am, SIR, July 28 1722. Your most humble Servant, J OCTOBER GREENWOOD. loved the Bird in my Breast, meaning his Oath made to King Henry, in whose Cause he lost his Life At Hexam also Were Henry's Forces defeated but himself with much Difficulty escaped into Scotland Shortly after which this unfortunate Prince came into England in Disguise, but being betray'd, was appre- hended in Waddington Hall as he sat at Dinner from whence he was conveyed to London, with his Legs bound to the Stirrups, and at London was Arrested by the Earl of Warwick, and committed to the Tower And now King Edward thinks himself at leisure to marry, yet refuseth all Foreign Matches, whereof he had many offered, and takes for his Consort an in feriour Subject, the Relict of his mortal Enemy Sir John Grey slain at the Battle of St, Albans on king Henry's side.

He took all Injuries, whereof he received plenty, so patiently, that he not only did not seek to revenge them but gave God Thanks that he did send them to punish his Sins in this Life, that he might escape Pu- nishment in the Life to come. To a a Ruffian that struck him on the Face whilst he was Prisoner he only said, Forfooth you are to blame, to strike your anointed King. Not long before his Death, being demanded, why he had so long held the Crown of England unjustly, he replied. My Father was King of England quietly enjoying the Crown all his Reign ; and his Father my Grandsire, was also King of England, and I even a Child in the Cra- dle, was proclaimed and crowned King without any Interrup. tion and so held it Forty Years well near, all the States do- ing Homage unto me, as to my Ancestors: Therefore I say with King David. My Lot is fallen in a fair Ground I have a goodly Heritage: My help is from the Lord which saveth the Upright in Heart. He founded those famous Colleges of Eaton, and King's- College in Cambridge. In A. D. 1435. The River Thames was so frozen up, that the Merchants, who came to the Thames Mouth, were carried to London by Land. In or near the Year of our Lord, 1442. was Elea. nor Cobham, the Good Duke Humphrey's Wife, ar- raigned of Sorcery and Treason, for setting on Bul- lingbrooke and Southwell to take away the King's Life by Necromancy. Something of the Fact, ' tis said, she either confessed, or was proved against her; for the which she was put to solemn and publick Pen- ance in London three several Days, then was commit- ted to perpetual Imprisonment. Line of YORK. EDWARD IV: A. D. EDward IV. was the eldest Son of Richard 1460. Duke of York, and began to Reign in the 20th Year of his Age. At which Time Henry of Windsor had many Friends remaining, who by open Hostility sought to re settle him on the English Throne. The Battle at Towton Fought on Palm Sun- day 1461, is very memorable, wherein died the Lords Beaumont, Nevil. Willoughby, Wells, Scales. Grey, Dacres, Fitz- Hugh, Beckingham, Knights, Esquires and Gentlemen a great Number, and in all on both Parts 35091, but Henry lost the Day. A. D. 1461, and June 28. was Edward Duke of York Earl of March crowned King at Westminster with great Solemnity. And in November following, was Henry of Windsor and his Son Edward by Parlia. ment disherited of their Right or Claim to the Crown. The Dukes of Excester and Somerset, and Earl of Devonshire, with 140 more, were attainted and disinherited. Queen Margaret the mean while was gaining Aids from France, but were discomfited by Bastard Ogle; Then with the Scots she entred Northumberland, took the Castle of Bamburgh, and passed forward to the Bishoprick of Durham, her Forces daily increasing. But these also were defeated by King Edward at Heg- ley Moor, where Sir Ralph Piercy dying, said, I have ward became a Suiter unto her for a Nights Lodging' but she wisely answered him, when he became impor- tunate, That as she did account herself too base to be his Wife so she did think herself too good to be his Whore When he would needs marry this lady, to the great Discontent of his Council, but especially of his Mother his Mother alledged many reasons to the contrary' and amongst the rest this: That only her Widow.' hood might be sufficient to restrain him, for that it was an high Disparagement to a King, to be disho- noured with Bigamy in his first Marriage. To which the King pleasantly answered : In that she is a Widow and hath already Children by God's blessed Lady I am a Batchelor and have some too, and so each of us hath a Proof, that neither of us are like to be Barren And therefore, Madam, I pray you be content I trust in God she shall bring you forth a young Prince that shall please you. To be continu'd. The Continuation of the Tryal of the twenty nine Regicides. Mr. Solicitor. Gentlemen of the Jury, What is this at the Bottom but to say, My Fact is such that I dare not call it Innocence, but would have you be- lieve it such ? Was it your Intention, Gentlemen, that the King should be tried as the Prisoner mov'd ? It will concern you to declare that the People of En. gland do abhor his Facts and Principles. Gentlemen, All that he hath said is, That there was an Authority of his own making whereby he becomes Innocent, but we hope out of his own Mouth you will find him Guilty. Gilbert Millington being call'd, said, He should not justify himself, but confess himself Guilty every Way, and that he was aw'd by the then present Power; and he presented a Petition in his Behalf, which the Court accepted. Robert Titchburn: being call'd, said. He acknow- ledg'd the Fact he was charg'd with, but said, that he had no more Malice to his Majesty than to his Wife that lay in his Bosom : That he was then young and ignorant of the Laws, and that had he been as sensible of the Crime then, as he was now, he would as soon have gone into a red hot Oven than into those Assemblies, and desir'd that the Court would be in- strumental with the King and Parliament in his Be- half. Owen Roe being call'd, confess'd his sitting in the Court of Justice, and signing the Warrant; but said he was an ignorant Tradesman, not vers'd in Matters of State, but led away by others ; and threw himself upon the King's Mercy. Robert Lilburne also acknowledg'd the Facts, and urg'd his Ignorance in the Laws as his Excuse, said he was for withdrawing the Court when the King mov'd it; and that the Day the King was put to Death, he retir'd to his Chamber and mourn'd for it. Henry Smith also acknowledg'd his sitting in the High Court of Justice ; and said the Hand to the Warrant was like his, but he did not remember his signing it; that what he did was ignorantly, and as. he was aw'd by the Power then in being ; and desir'd the Court would become Mediators for him to his Majesty, Then the Chief Baron directed the Jury, as to Har- Vey, Pennington, Marten, Millington, Titchburne, Roe, f ) Care of Mr. Molloy, a Messenger In the Great AL mon dry in Westminfter : It appeared by his Papers that he held a Correspondence with the Pretend- er's Court, and which he did not deny when exa- min'd by the Lord Townshed, on Sunday last : His Lordship was upon committing him to Newgate immediately for High- Treason ; but the Prisoner earnestly beseeching that he might go back to the Messenger's for that Night, and seeming inclin'd to make a Discovery of some Matters of very great Moment, my Lord indulg'd him in his Request, gi- ving the Messenger the strictest Orders to take Care of him : Being carry'd back to the Messenger's House after Supper, at about Eight o'Clock, as the Messen- ger and his Son were conducting him up to Bed in a Strong Room, a large Window on the Stairs hap- pen'd to be open, out at which he took a sudden Leap into the Gardens of a Foreign Minister, being 34 Foot high from the Ground, and was let through the House by the Servants, before the Messenger could recover his Surprize ; the strictest Search ima- ginable was made after him all that Night, and the best Account that could be got of him was, that he went off in a Waterman's Boat. Last Thursday a Proclamation was publish'd, offering the Reward of 1000 1. for apprehending him. The High Constable of Holbourn Division, having a Warrant signed by many of the Justices of the Peace, to search a Gaming House at Hampstead, and to ap. prehend such Persons as he should find Gaming there- in, went thither on Tuesday last in order to execute the said Warrant and called to his Assistance the Con- stables of Hampstead, with whom he went to the said House, and took into Custody several Persons whom he found Gaming there ; but meeting with much Op- position from the Gamesters, and not being assisted by the Constables pursuant to the Charge given them, all the Gamesters made their Escape The Justices of the Peace, at their Petty Sessions on Friday last, be. ing acquainted with the Misbehaviour of the Consta- bles upon this Occasion, ordered them to be commit- ted to Newgate, and directed the High Constable to prosecute them. One Eyed Howson ( formerly a Chairman) who some time since was committed to Newgate for being a Common Gamester, and at that Time appeared in Habit like a Person of Quality, was apprehended ( among others; last Thursday Night, by the High Constable of Westminster, at a common Gaming. House, where he, with others, were found Gaming, and being brought before the Justices of the Peace, was committed on Friday last to the House of Correcti- on in Tuttle Fields and put to hard Labour. He made as genteel a Shew in his long Wig and Ruffles at the Hemp Block as he used to make at the Gaming Table • and ap- peared to be docible having ( with the Help of the Strappado) soon learnt to handle the Beetle as dextrously as if it had been a Dice Box But the worst of it is, he is since charg'd with the Lord Chief Justice's Warrant for Fe- lony Last Week one Leman a French Soldier in the Third Regiment of Guards, was committed Prisoner to the Savoy, being charged, as we hear, with Drinking the Pretender's Health Friday 7- Night last a Fire broke out near the Uni- on Stairs Wapping, which burnt down four or five Houses, and damag'd some others. Monday six private Centinels who had deserted from the Army encamp'd in the West, were taken at Hounslow, and committed Prisoners to the Savoy. On Tuesday last, Mr. Coward, an Attorney of Sta- ples Inn, was chosen Clerk of the Sadlers Company, in the room of Mr. Draper, who is very much out of Order. A Warrant being issued out againft Mr. Carte a Non- juring Minister, the Messengers went to his Lodgings to take him, but he had made his Escape His Papers in his said Lodgings being examin'd, they found Tay. lors Bills, Notes of Sermons, & c. One Gwyn johnson, an Accomplice with Smith the Highwayman, executed at Rochester, is committed to the Gatehouse for unlawful Gaming. The Right Honourable the Earl of Stafford, Brother to the Lady Bellew, is come to Town. On Lilburne and Smith ; and the Jury, having with- drawn a little Time, brought these eight in Guilty. After which, John Downs, Vincent Potter, Augu- stine Garland, Simon Moyne, James Temple, Peter Temple, Tho. Wayte, Wm. Heveningham, were set to the Bar; and same Jury who try'd the other eight, were charged with these : And the King's Council ha- ving open d the Indictment, Mr. John Downs, in or- der to soften his Offence, said, He was thrust into the Number of the King's Judges, but was never of any Consultation about the Thing : That when the King desir'd to be heard before the Parliament, and mov'd so passionately, that they would adjourn and consider of his Request , he was the Person who caused the Court to adjourn ; and that when they were adjourned, he press'd that the King's Request might be compliy'd with, and he might be heard before the Parliament, and that he enforc'd what he said from an Order of Parliament, that was made after the Act for the Tryal, viz. That upon any Emergergency they should immediately acquaint the House ; that Cromwel answer'd with a great deal of Storm, sure he did not know that they had to do with the most hard- hearted Man upon Earth : That it was not fit the Court should be interrupted by one peevish Man, and that the Bottom of it was, he would fain save his old Master: And Cromwel de. sir'd, that the Court, without any more ado, would go and do their Duty. The Lord Chief Baron observed, That notwith- standing these Convictions, the Prisoner proceeded to sign the Warrant for the King's Execution : To which the Prisoner answer'd, His Life was threatned if he refus'd, and threw himself upon the King's Vincent Potter confess'd his sitting in the High Court of Justice, signing the Warrant, See. but said he was not concern'd in tha Contrivance ; and threw himself upon the King's Mercy. Augustine Garland confess'd his sitting in Court and signing the Warrant tor the King's Execution ; but the King's Council said they would not accept of this Confession, for they would prove that he was the Man that Spit in the King's Face ; whereupon Clench was sworn : He depos'd, That on the Day of the Sentence, as they were hurrying the King away, Garland came by, and spit in the King's Face ; and the Witness being ask'd if he did it on purpose ; he answer'd, I suppose he did it somewhat suspiciously in that Way Garland re- ply'd, He did not know he was near the King, and he was afraid the Witness was an indigent Person ; but said, if he was guilty of this Inhumanity, he desir'd no Favour of God Almighty, and that he was never accus'd of any Thing of this Nature till a few days since : That indeed he was forc'd into the Chair when that Act pass'd for trying the King, That what he had done was out of Fear, being over aw'd by the higher Powers, and that he never had any Malice, or shew'd any Disrespect to his Majesty or his Friends. Simon Meyne coming upon his Tryal, acknowledg'd his sitting in the High Court of Justice, and signing the Warrant for the King's Execution ; but said he was under a Force too, and threatned in case he re- fus'd. James Temple acknowledged the Signing of both, Warrants, and presented a Petition to the Court, which received. Peter Temple acknowledg'd that he sate in Court the Day of the Sentence, and singed both the War. rants; but said, what he had done was not with a malicious or traiterous Heart; and that was the Rea- son of his pleading Not Guilty at first. Thomas Wayte also acknowledg'd, that he sate in the High Court of Justice, and his Hand being sheWn him to the Warrant for the King's Execution; he he believ'd it to be his Hand, but said, he was drawn in, and trepan'd into the Matter, and deliver'd in his Petition to the King and both Houses of Parlia- ment, which the Court receiv'd. To be continu'd. Friday 7. Night one John Sample, who had lately come hither from Italy, was seized by a Warrant from the Lord Townshend, and committed to the ( 2312 ) On Saturday last, about two of the Clock, a sad Ac- cident happened over- against the Swan Alehouse in Shoe Lan; A Dog ( belonging to one Butler, a smith, that was then at Work in his Cellar there) running at three Bailiffs tHat were paffing by, they struck at him, which occasion'd some Angry Words between the Smith and them ; upon which they went down into his Cellar as we hear, to beat him ; how far they pro- ceeded therein we cannot tell, but in the Fray the Smith snatch'd a red hot Iron Out of the Fire, and ran it into the Breast of one of the three, Viz. Nathaniel Boyce, thereby wounding and burning him so dange- rously, that he dy'd about six or seven Hours after. The said Smith is committed to Newgate, and the two Bailiffs are admitted to Bail.

Relict of a Gentleman of a good Family in the West of England, is lately dead in the 91st Year of her Age, and, what is very remarkable, hath always enjoy'd a perfect State of Health to the Time of her Death, which seem'd to be only occasion'd by her great Number of Years. She had several gallant young Gentlemen her Sons, who all died in the Bed of Honour, either in the Fleet or Ar- my, in the Service of their King and Country ; ex. cept one, who was kill'd in the Siege of Candia by the Infidels.

SIR, INeed no other Inducement than that of Friend- ship, to excite me to unbosom my self to you and to acquaint you what are the true Sentiments of my Mind ; and then, especially, it is a Pleasure to me to do so, when I have any Hopes of being ser- viceable to you, either by cautioning you against any Errors, either in Judgment or Practice, or by encou- raging you in the Ways of Virtue and Probity, and so much the rather, when I consider how much our former Conversation has tended to cherish in us Prin- ciples ( or rather Notions) contrary to our true Inte- rest, as well as our present Duty.

Yet, such has been Our blind Zeal, and misguided Affection, towards the Chevalier ( notwithstanding the Hand of Provi dence has so remarkably and so often appear'd a- gainst him) that a great Part of the Kingdom may say to us, and our Party, as Joab did to David, con- cerning Absalom, ( or with little Variation) That if he had succeeded, and all We had died, it had pleas'd you well This is too evident to be denied ; but how shall we reconcile this and our Profession as Prote- stants, as also the Oaths that we have ( generally) ta- ken, viz. that of Allegiance to King George, and the Abjuration- Oath ? Besides, do not we in our Liturgy bless God for bringing King George to the Throne of these Kingdoms, and daily Pray for his Preservation and Prosperity ? And shall we dare to Plot or Fight, contrary to our Oaths, and against our daily Prayers, God forbid ! What would the Pretender himself think of us? What would the World think of us, should we have succeeded in our Wishes and Attempts ; who have taken Oaths against him j who have address'd against him, and who have pray'd against him for so many Years together ? Yea, what could we think of ourselves, when we see, tho' too late, that we had intail'd Misery and Ruin on ourselves and Posterity ? Therefore, whatever Notions or Attempts have a Tendency hereto, I shall henceforth esteem to be dis- loyal, and tending to the Prejudice of these King, doms; and I heartily wish, that as these Considerati- ons have convinc'd me, tho' I have been long and greatly mistaken, they may have the same Effect on you, which will engage me, more than ever, to sub- scribe my self your real Friend, MITHRIDATES.
