OR, J British Gazetteer. [ reshest Advices Foreign and SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1722 govern'd by these Principles, whether they care to own them in so many words or not. _ One would think indeed, that none but Mad- Men could ever act so contrary to Reason and so opposite to their own interests, ( I mean such who call them- selves Protestants) and therefore after a few, who have sin'd out of malicious wickedness, have been let Blood in the Jugular Vein ; I would advise such loyal Sub- jects, who are next Of Kin to the remaining Criminals, to Petition his Majesty for Leave t0 erect new Mad- Houses for such Convicts at Bromley in Kent, where they may. be kept from doing themselves, or any of his Majesty's good Subjects, more Majesty ; and where they will have the Annual Pleasure to heat the Bells Ring, as usual, on the 1oth of June. I am, Off. ii. SIR, 1722. Your most humble Servant, October Greenwood The Continuation of the Life of RICHARD lit King of ENGLAND. iv, . : • i His Wife was Ann the Daughter of Richard Nevill Earl of Warwick and Salisbury, ( firnamed the Make King; who was first married to Edward Prince of Wales 1483, Son to King Henry VI. and after his Death to this Usurper 1472. His Issue was Edward Earl of Salisbury created Prince of Wales, 1483, the Crown being also intailed to him by Parliament, but died before his Father. He founded a College it Middleham beyond York, and a Collegiate Chantry in London, called our Lady of Barking; He endowed Queen's College in Cam- bridge with 500 Marks of Yearly Revenue. He dis. forested the great Field of Whichwood, that King Edward had inclosed for his Game, and made some • Good Laws j and when divers Shires of England ' offered him Benevolence, he refused, saying, I had rather have your Hearts than your Money. This scoffing Rhime was divulged in Contempt of the Usurper Rich, and his Three principal Creatures. The Cat, the Rat, and Lovel the Dog, Rule all England under the Hog. The Cat and Rat meant of Catesbury and Ratcliff:, the Dog of Lovell, that Creature belonging to the Lord Lovell's Arms, and the Hog of King Richard, whose Cognisance it was. But William Collingbourn, who had been Sheriff ' of Wiltshire and Devonshire, was upon Tower- Hill Executed with all Extremity as Author thereof. The Usurper borrowed great Sums of Money of the City of London, but was cut off before the Pay day came. It may be more of his Quality have died in the City's Debt, Families of Lancaster and York United. A. D. Henry Earl of Richmond was Son to Mar- 1485. X garet Countess of Richmond and Derby, Daughter to John Duke of Somerset, Son of John Earl of Somerset, Son to John of Gaunt. Duke of Lancaster, 4th Son of Edward III. IN my last, I consider'd the Political faith of the Jacobites, as it regards Matters of Fact but I shall now consider it with Respect t0 those Doctrincs which it em- braces, and which are the Fundamental Points whereby they are distin- guish'd from those, whom they us'd to represent Enemies to the Consti- tution Church and State. How far their great Ar- ticles of Political Faith, with Respect to our Ecclesi- astical and Civil Government, are consistent with themselves and agreeable to Reason and Truth, may be seen in the following Parodoxes, which are the Essentials of a Jacobite's Creed, with Relation to po- litical Matter's. His first Fundamental Article is, . That the Church of England will be always in Dan- ger, till it has a Popish King for its Defender. 1 That for the Safety of the Church, no Subject should be tolerated in any Religion different from the Establish'd ; but that the Head of our Church may be of that Religion, which is most repugnant to it. 3. That the Protestant Religion could not but flou- rish under the Protection of one, who thinks himself obliged on pain of Damnation, to do all that lies in his Power for the Extirpation of it. 4. That we may safely rely upon the Promises of one, whose Religion allows him to make them, and at the same obliges him to break them. That a good Man should have a greatar Abhor, rence of Presbyterianism than of Popery, because the first is accounted Schism, but the latter is only Idolatry. 6. That more than ten Millions of People should rather chuse to fall into Slavery, than not acknowledge their Prince to be invested with an Hereditary and Indefealible Right of Oppression. 7 That we ought to profess the Doctrine of Passive Obedience till such Time as Nature rebel against Prin- ciple, that is, till we are put to the Necessity of practicing it. 8. That Papists never take up Arms, but to defend the Protestant Church with the utmost Hazard of their Lives and Fortunes. , 9 That there is an unwarrantable Faction in this Kingdom, consisting of a King, Lords, and Commons. ic. That the Legislature, when there is a Majority of Whigs in it, has not Power to make Laws. 11. That being govern'd by Laws that were made by our Representatives in Parliament, is a great in- fringment of the Liberties of the Subject. n. That no Nation in the World ought ro have a Prince imposed upon them, that is not of their own Religion, Great- Britain only excepted. I have borrowed most of these Articles from a great Author, and I cannot forbear observing that not withstanding these Articles appear so very ridiculous in themselves and so contrary to the Sense and Reason of Mankind; yet. the present Behaviour of our ja- cobites is a sure Proof that their Actions are wholly ( Price Three Half. Pence ) october the 30th A. D. iyji, was Henry Crowned at Westminster. Then the better to secure his Estate he shut up the Earl of Warwick, the only son and Heir of George Duke of Clarence, in the Tower of Lon- don. Then instituted a Guard for his Person, consist- ing of a Number of choice Archers, with allotment of Fees and Maintenance under a a peculiar Captain, by the Name of Yeomen of the Guard, for him and his Successors. November the Seventh was a Parliament assembled at Westminster, at the Sitting whereof Rich, ard the late Usurper was attainted, and with him ma- ny of the Nobility and Gentry. Free Pardon was also given to all such ( saving the Persons excepted by Name) as should presently submit themselves to the King's Mercy. Reversed also were all former Acts hurtful either to the King or his Friends, and the Crown was established upon the King and his Heirs forever. Next the King assumed into his Council those two Renowned Agents in advancing his Fortunes, John Morton and Richard Fox. A. D- 1486, and January the eighteenth he mar. ried the Lady Elizabeth, eldest Daughter of King Ed- ward IV. to the utter Abolishments of all Hostilities between the two Houses of York and Lancaster. But there wanted not some Malecontents, who essayed to disturb these serene Days; for the Lord Lovell, one of the late Usurper's Creatures, with Sir Humphrey Stafford and his Brother, assembled Forces against the King ; which, upon but the News of any Army com- ing against them, dispersed themselves Sir Hum- phrey was taken out of Sanctuary, and executed at Tyburn. When this Storm was over, the White Rose of York Faction raiced another, procuring one Lambert Sym- nel, to personate one of King Edward's Son. Which Puppet Lambert they conveyed into Ireland, where the Irish adhered to him, and in Christ- Church in Dublin crowned him King of England. And into Ireland the Dutchess Dowager of Burgundy, Sister to Edward the fourth, sent this Impostor two thousand Soldiers under the Conduct of Colonel Swart, These with Irish and some English joined to them, landed rc in Lancashire at the Pile of Fowdray; thence they took their March through Yorkshire, so toward New- ark, every where as rhey came proclaiming their new King. Not far from Newark, and near to a little Village called Stoke, the King with his Army en- countered them, where the Fight continued doubtful for about three Hours; but at last the Victory fell to King Henry. On Lambert's Part were slain, the Earl of Lincoln, the Lord Lovell, Sir Thomas Brough- ton, Colonel Swart, and Maurice Fitz- Thomas, with four thousand Soldiers On the King's side fell not any Man of Honour but almost half his Van Guard was slain, so that the Garland was dipp'd in Blood. To be continu'd. The Continuation of the Tryal of Edward Coleman, for High Treason. Another Letter from Mons. le Chese was read ; wherein Mr. Coleman mentions the Letter he sent the 29th of September, and tells him, the Parliament drawing 011, he had sent him a Cypher, which he should write in, when he had any thing of Impor- tance ; and when any thing was to be imparted, thac he did not think fit to trust to a Cypher, he should write it in Juice of Lemon between the Lines: He goes on, and has these Expressions, We have here a mighty Work upon our Hands, no less than the Conversion of three Kingdoms, and by that perhaps the utter subduing of a pestilent Heresy, which has domineer'd over a great Part of this Northern World a long Time : There never such hopes of Success since the Death of our Queen Mary as now in our Days, when God has given us a Prince, who is become ( may if ay a Miracle) zealous of being the Author and Instrument of so glorious a Work ; and that which we rely on next to Providence and the Favour of my Master the Duke, is the mighty Mind of his most Christian Majesty, whose generous Soul inclines him to great Undertakings' Then he goes on and shows, That they were a little unhappy in havirg Mons. Rouvigny his Majesty's Mini- ster at this Court, in that they dare not communicate to him the most material Part of their Design ( i. e the Business of Religion, Rouvigny being a Protestant That had he been a Minister, who would have taken their Case to Heart, and represented it justly to his most Christian Majesty, he did not doubt he would have assisted them with such a Supply of Money as would have put their mutual Interests out of Danger for the Time to come : But wanting those Advana- ges, he was afraid they should lose ground the next Sessions, rather than gain any Thing. Mr. Attorney having concluded his Evidence Mr. Coleman desir'd Mr. Oates might be ask'd, what Days of the Months of April or May he was with him ? Oates. It was within a Day or two, or three, after the Consult; you came to the Provincial's Chamber and Mico, and Strange the old Provincial, and Keins your Companion, were there; Coleman What Day in August do you say I was at the Savoy ? Oates. I cannot charge my Memory with the par- ticular Day of the Month, but I believe it was about the 21st of August, O. S. L. C. J. He charges you expresly with being at Wild- house in August, when the eighty Pounds were sent to the Assassines at Windsor, and> that you gave a Guinea to expedite the Matter, but it is hard for a Man to be precise to the Day of the Month. Coleman. I never saw either of the Witnesses till I was before the Council ; and as to their Testimony they do not swear to the same Fact. L. C. J. If one swears to the ' poisoning, and the other to the Design of shooting or stabbing the KING, These are but two Ways of effecting the same Thing ( viz ) the King's Death ; and then there is your own Undertaking in the Letter under your Hand. Coleman. There are very extravagant Expressions in the Letter, but I hope there are Expressions in it that shew I had no Design to kill the King. L. C J. No : Your Design was for the Conversion of three Kingdoms, and therefore you press the King of France to use his Power, Aid and Assistance to sub- vert our Religion, which is the Thing you are charg'd with. Coleman Consider the Contexture and Connexion of Things, and you will find my Design to be to make the King and the Duke as great as could be: And it cannot be imagin'd, that the Duke would employ any ( which was the Thing I solicited for) to the Prejudice of the King ; and I hope neither the Law of England, or the Jury, will construe my Undertakings to be treasonable : How can what was design'd for the In. terest of the King and Duke be Treason ? L. C. J. Might not you use the Duke of York's Name for a Colour to drive on the Catholick Cause? you thought to get 100000 I. Advance Money and a Pension for yourself, and to be made Secreatary of State hereafter. If you will make any Defence, call your Witnesses; but for these inconsequential Discourses, they signify nothing. Then Mr. Coleman demanded of Mr. Boatman, if he was not in Warwickshire in August. Boatman. He was there all August to the best of my Remembrance, but I am not certain what Time he came to London. Coleman. I have no more Witnesses, and have no- thing further to say. Then Mr. Solicitor, Sir Francis Winnington, sum'd up the Evidence for the King ; and as to Mr. Cole- man's Defence, in which he says his Design was to make his Majesty great, he answer'd, that the contrary was manifest; for the Jesuits, who lov'd Tyranny' aways adhered to those Persons, who were greatest in Power: That when the House of Austria were in their Greatness, and like to arrive at universal Monar- chy, then the Jesuits adher'd to that House; but since the French King had grown powerful, they had de- clin'd the Interest of the Austrian Family, and pro- moted the Counsels of France, believing that would become the universal Monarch. To be continu'd. . Wood, Esq; is about to build an House and other Conveniences near the Seven Dials, for the Coining of new Brass Money for the Plantations, which purpose a patent pass'd the Seals sometime since in his Favour. ^ r. v.

At his Excellency's alighting at his Hotel, he found there the Officers of the Garrison, the Clergy, and Magistrates in a Body attending his Arrival ; they paid their Compliments on that Occasion, and also presented him the Wine of Honour, which his Ex cellency presently caused to be distributed. His Ex- cellency also sent his Secretaries to the rest of the Foreign Ministers to notify his Arrival ; they imme. diately came to visit his Excellency, and were revi- sed by him the same Evening.

Upon his Majesty's Orders transmitted by the Commissioners of the Customs to this as well as to other Ports, for securing the St. Pe- ter a French Vessel, taken pyratically by Philip Roche and others, who murdered the Master Pierre Tar- toue and all her Crew ; a small Brigantine now in this Harbour answering in her Make and Cargoe the De. scription given in the Advices sent with those Orders, the Custom House Officers here procured a Warrant from a justice of Peace, and this Day seiz'd her with five Men on board.

Another Woman was also delivered of three Monsters, two dead, and one alive, their Heads and the fore parts of their Bodies like Monkeys, with a long bushy Tail ; that which came alive was stifled in a Pan of hot Wa- ter. their Pictures were drawn and set up to publick view. A third Woman was deliver'd of a dead Child, whose Back was gnaw'd by five Serpent, which came alive into the World with it, and leap'd up and down the Room, which so frighted the Midwife and others present, as made them run out ; but the Husband took Courage and enter'd the Room with a Stick and destroy'd them.

Last Friday 7- Night the Lords Spiritual and Tempo- ral presented a most humble Address to his Majesty, which is as follows. - Most Gracious Sovereign, WE Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Sub. jects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, humbly return Your Majesty the Thanks of this House for Your Majesty's most gracious Speech from the Throne, and for communi- cating to Your Parliament the dangerous Designs formed, and still Carrying on, against Your Majesty's most sacred Person and Government, in Favour of a Popish Pretender. • We cannot sufficiently express our Detestation and Abhorrence thereof or our just Indignation against all such as have, by ' any Means whatsoever, traite- rously endeavoured to alienate the Affections of Your Majesty's good Subjects, or by maliciously fomenting any of their late Discontents, however occasioned, to raise them to a Spirit of Rebellion. We think our selVes in Duty - bound, on this Occa. sion, to declare our Very great Satisfaction in the wise Measures taken by Your Majesty, which, by the Blessing of God, have hitherto disappointed the trea- sonable Projects of all Your Enemies, and happily preferred the Peace and Tranquillity of the Kingdom. Could the Enemies of our Peace have procur- ed a Foreign Force to invade us , and by such Assistance. a Rebellion to have been raised in the Heart of Your Kingdom, though we assure ourselves so desperate an Attempt must have ended in their own Destruction, it is not yet to be doubted, but that the City of London, whose Wealth and Influence have been so constantly employed in opposing Popery and Arbitrary Power, would have felt the utmost Efforts of their Fury, and the Kingdom been made a Scene of Bloodshed and Confusion. Such of Your Majesty's good Subjects, as may have been unwarily misled at so critical a Juncture, must now plainly discern the Difference, between those great Calamities, from which, by the Blessing of God, they have been hitherto preserv'd, and the imaginary Dangers with Which they have been industriously amused.

HE Water that was Sold next Door to the An- chor and Crown in Chandois Street, is now Sold at the Bible and Hand and Pen in Russel Court, Drury Lane, and no where else is Sold the Water that Cures all old sores, tho' of 30 Years continu- ance; takes away all mortified or proud Flesh, cleans the Bone, preserves the Sinews, and makes a perfect sound Cure, without any trouble, only this Water applied. Within these five Years it has cured a vast Number of the King's and Joint Evil, Fistula's, green Wounds, Strains and outward Bruises, but is not to be taken inwardly. One that had his Lip quite eat off, and anocher, part of her Nose eat off, was by this Water cured, and brought again to their right Form, they was given over by more than 10 Surgeons, and of more than 20 Years continuance. This Water dissolves Kernels, and all Swellings; and if the Limbs be dead and useless, penetrates and removes the Cause, and brings them again to their natural Perfection. It Cures sore Eyes of all kinds, when given over by Occulists. A maraculous Cure just done upon the Eye and both the Hands of a Youth, he had been under the care of, and given over by Sir Hans Sloan; Physician to his prefent Majesty, and several others of the most Learned. A Gentlewoman's two Breasts, that were eating off with an evilish and scorbutick Humour, was cured by it. It takes out Heats and Carbuncles. It is Sold from 6d. to 5 s. the Bottle. Any Person may be directed by the Author, to them thar have been cured by it for Satisfaction. THomas Finch , Butcher, hath hired Thomas Dewe of Honney Lane, Waltham Abbey Essex, at Waltham- Abbey Statue, and took one Shilling Earnest. This is therefore to give Notice to all Per- sons whatsoever, not to entertain the said Thomas Dewe at their Peril; and whomsoever shall secure the said Thomas Dewe, and bring him to Mr. Thomas Finch in Lumbard Street in the Mint, at the Sign of the Great Ox, shall have reasonable Charges allowed them. September, 15th 1722 " The Continuation of the Cheats of Astrologers. Enq: Let me see the Figure a little. I won- der how you could have the Impudence to tell her, her Husband should die first, when according to the Rules of Astrology, here are all the Signs imaginable that she will die first. Doct. You are but a Novice in our Art, I perceive, to go by Rules of Astrology ; I did so at first when I practic'd, and then I could never get my Bread by it. Why, look you, suppose she does die first, she'll never tell I am a salfe Prophet after she's dead surely ; but if I had told her she should die first, and if it should not have happen'd so, her Husband being a sickly Man, then she would have done me a world of Mis- chief among the Neighbours, as now she may do me a great deal of Good: For most of those that come to us, if the Answer suit not their Fancy, go Home dis satisfied, calling us Rogues, Cheats, and telling their Neighbours, we can answer a Question no more than the Post, and then away to another, and another Astrologer, till they find one that pleases them; then him they they cry up, and fill his House full of Custo- mers presently, though perhaps the first might speak truer than the last. Enq. You speak cunningly, but not honestly. But Just at this word, we heard a Man coming up in haste, so I whipt to mv old Place again, and thus I heard him bespeak the Doctor. Man. Sir, I under stand you are an able Man to find stol'n Goods, and I am exceedingly troubled about a Silver Tankard that was stolen out of our House Yesterday: Pray, Sir, tell me who stole it, and where is the Thief, that I may go with a Consta- ble and nap him. ' Doct. What, does your Master keep an Alehouse Friend ? Man. A Victualling House, and please you. Doct. And who do you suspect? Man. We cannot tell, for we ne'er mist it till Night. Doct. Stay here a while, Friend, I'll to my Study and do the best I can for you. Now, Friend, I have done my Endeavour for you ; And I tell you it will be a great deal of Trouble to get this Tankard; Sa- turn being retrograde in the second Aspect, afflicting the Lord of the second with a Partile Square. Man. Alas, Sir, I am undone then, my Master says I shall pay for it, if it be not got again. LONDONPrinted and Sold by J. READ, in White- Fryers near Fleet- Street. Where Advertisements are taken in. The Sessions for the City London, will begin next Wednefday. . The next ensuing Sessions to be begin on the isch of December. Wednesday the Honourable House of Commons pre- sented a most Loyal Address to His Majesty, wherein they return'd humble Thanks for His Gracious Speech from the Throne, and congratulated his frustrating and disappointing the Designs of His Enemies, That it was the greatest Satisfaction to them, to see the Readiness of His Majesty's Good Friends and Allies, the States- General, to assist Him with a good Body of Forces, if there had been Occasion. That His Loyal Commons are determin'd, with the utmost Una- nimity and Zeal, to do every thing in their Power for the PreserVation of His Majesty's most Sacred Person ; and that they will enable Him effectually to suppress all remaining Spirit of Rebellion. That if there be any of His Majesty's Subjects who are so abandon'd as to be ready to exchange the Protestant Religion for Popery, and Liberty for Slavery, yet they hop'd the vigorous Resolutions of a Loyal and Dutiful Parliament would convince them of the Danger, as well as Folly, of such an Attempt } and shew the whole World, that the Generality, and best Part of His People, are so far from giving any Invi- tation to Foreign Powers to invade them, that they will, with their Lives and Fortunes, support His Ma- jesty against all His Enemies at Home and Abroad. Farthermore. they could not express too great an Ab- horrence of such unnatural Practices, nor too great an Indignation against those who would have made the Capital of this Flourishing Kingdom a Scene of Blood and Desolation. Doct. Heark you, Friend, give me a Shilling this Question. Man. Here it is, good Doctor. Doft. Now I'll tell you, I have a Secret in in Occult Philosophy to afflict a Thief, that ne'er a Man in Eng- land that knows but myself, so that the Thief shall either be apprehended, or make some Discovery of it himself, or it shall come out so by one or other that you shall have your Tankard again: But this will be a great Charge to me, and I cannot afford to do it under ten Shillings in Hand, and ten Shillings more when you have the Tankard. Man. I have not so much Money, but I'll give you five Shillings now in Hand, here take it, and tea Shillings more when the Tankard is found Doct. ' Tis indeed too little, but because you are Servant, I give you a Crown. Man. I thank you, Sir pray do it as soon as you can. I live at the Sign of the . Doct. Farewel Friend, ne'er fear, sleep quiet. And now out came I again. Enquirer. Doctor, what have you done ! Can any mortal Man or the Devil himself, perform what you have promis'd this Fellow ? Doct. I don't know, nor don't carey I shall never trouble my Head no more about it. Enq. Do you think, that if the Tankard be never found, the Fellow won't come for his five Shillings again ? The Remainder in our next.
