C 2375 ) T II E British Gazetteer.' Being the freshest Advices Foreign and Domestick: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1722. s I R, . THE wicked Designs of our enemies are now laid open to the View of the Publick, and his Ma- jesty. has. told us the se- cret. Measures they had taken to compass the Ruin of this Protestant Kingdom. They had made great Preparations for a sudden Insurrection, and no doubt but it will evidently appear upon the Trials of the Conspirators, that they design'd to open the Tragical Scene with a hellish and coward- ly Assassination of the King and his Royal Family. For as much infatuated as they really are, yet being denied Assistance from Abroad, it is impossible to ima- gine that they had any Hopes of succeeding by an open Rebellion, before they had murdered the Royal Family'; they know by Experience how fatal the Field of Battle has been to them, and therefore we may be sure they design'd not to open with a second Campaign, while they were destitute of Foreign Aid. I am perswaded that the Discovery of this villainous Conspiracy, has already made many deluded Protest. ants tremble at the Remembrance of their past Guilt and Folly, injoyning with the Jacobites at the late Elections ; and how indeed can they do less ? For they now see what sad Consequences would have followed if they had got a House Commons of their Principles ; we may be sure they Would have distrest the King in all the Measures he should propose for his and our Safety, and whether they had been continued sitting, or were dissolv'd again either way, would have equally facilitated the Designs of the Conspirators : and being so forward in their Preparations, as we find they were, a new Election would have set the Nation in such a Ferment, that it must have had a fatal and cruel Issue, because had not this Conspiracy been dis- cover'd, many deluded Protestants had still acted in Conjunction with those deceitful and Blood thirsty Men. As it is, we see how narrowly the Nation, but especially the City of London has hitherto escaped that Bloodshed and Slaughter, which the Conspirators had design'd to commit ; and these Evils if they had came upon us, would have been entirely owing to that un. natural Union of Protestants with Papists, Nonjurors, and other High Church Jacobites at the late Electors. We see now to what vile End they took the sacred Name of Liberty into their traiterous Mouths, and that at a Time when We were in the full Enjoyment of that and every thing else that could be dear and valuable to us as Protestants and Britons, and so under a specious Pretext of imaginary Dangers they wrought upon weak Minds ( who had been private Sufferers by the the unforefeen Consequences of the South Sea Scheme) to assist them in bringing the whole Nation into real Danger, even to the very Brink of De- struction. But how should we. whom God has so wonderfully delivered, abhor the Conversation and detest the Prin- ciplees of such pretended Protestants, who would Price Three Half Pence bring in a Popish Tyrant to enslave us. and do not scrUple to break the most solemn Oaths, and com- mit Murder to accomplish that accursed Design? Therefore in thiS our Jacobite Protestants are much worse than the Papists, because Protestants of every Denomination do severely condemn Murder upon any Account whatever; but the Church of Home having decreed that no Faith is to be kept with Here- ticks ( meaning Protestants) the Roman CathOlick rightly concludes from the Belief of that Doctrine, when he has it in his Power to murder such as be Hereticks, it is meritorious to do it, because he there by does God and the Church good Service; but I know of no other Religion tolerates Murder upon any Account , but our Jacobites who call themselves Protestants, and dare commit Murder to obtain their Ends, are such monftrous Sons of Belial, that no Age nor Nation ( but this) did ever produce. Therefore let all Mankind be Judges, whether, if the Pretender should obtain his Ends by their Assistance, he could possibly be so weak, as afterwards to put any trust in such Men, who contrary to their profess'd Princi- ples, have committed the most unnatural Barbarities to set him on the Throne ? What the Papists do in Conjunction with them, is consistent with their own Principles, but they must imagine the Pretender to be more weak in his Judgment than he really is: Who can think that he would ever repose the least Trust in those Men who have acted so contrary, not only to the Precepts of the Religion they profess, but also to the Dictates of Humane Nature, and whom therefore no Principles can bind ? Surely, if the Pretender has the least Grain of Sense, he cannot avoid making such a just Conclusion from the aforesaid Premises. But more especially when he remembers that those very Men have long since declared to Queen Anne, that when provok'd, Nature might rebel against Principle, as it did when they resisted his pretended Father. Such are the Men who murmur at King GEORGE, because they are not entrusted with Posts of Honour and Profit in Church and State, who yet to this Day, do discover in all their Actions, such a Deprivation of all Religious or Moral Principles that make it equally unsafe for a Protestant. or Popish Prince to trust them with the meanest Place in the Kingdom. The Breach of the most solemn Oaths is grown into a State Jest, and he that scruples either the taking or breaking of them, is in a much worse Condition than he that commits Adultery, because for the latter, the High Priests will readily give him Absolution, but the former Is such a distinguishing Mark of a High Churchman, that he that wants it, is esteem'd as a false Brother. and against such you know Bungey advises Frank Scammony to thunder out his Ecclesiastical Anathema's. I am, 0if. 11. S I R, 1722. Your most humble Servant, October Greenwood. By Reason of our inserting a new and exact a Scheme of the Lottery set up by his Majesty's Char- ter at Harburg in his Dominions in Germany, we are oblig'd in this, to discontinue the History of the Ene- lish Kings and State Tryals, which shall be continu'd in our next. , 15 R ABstRACt DERICK is Governour) to issue Tickets at 3l ster- ling, or 33 Guilders Dutch Money, per Ticket, viz 12 s- Sterling, or six Guilders 12 Stivers, on taking out their Tickets ; 12 s. or six Guilders 12 Stiver, mare for every undrawn Ticket, one Month before the Second Part shall begin to be drawn ; and the further Sum of 12 s. or six Guilders Stivers for every undrawn Ticket in the remaining Parts, Month before each succceding Part shall begin to be drawn, to compleat the Money that shall have been paid, to 3 1.

Sterling, or 5 Guilders and 10 Stivers per Ticket, if they should be so unfortunate as to have all Blanks. In all Receipts and Payments the Pound Sterling will be reckoned equal to 11 Guilders, and other Mo. ney as the Exchange shall then be. The Prizes will be paid within one Month after they are adjusted, to such as have complected their Pay- ments, without any Deduction ; and as soon as each.

N. B. To such Adventurers as shall take out one Ticket, including 100 successive or following Num- bers or Tickets, the Trustees will lend 9s. per Ticket, part of the first Payment: To such as shall so take 50 Tickets, they will lend 7 s. per Ticket : And to such as shall in like manner take 2s Tickets, they will lend 5 s. per Ticket ; which Money so lent, is to be repaid to the Trustees ( without In- terest) by one fourth Part at a Time, on each of the remaining Payments that are to be made on their Tickets, unless they shall have such Prizes as may enable them sooner to, compleat the Sum of L. 3 upon each Ticket, in which Case the Trustees shall retain so much of the said Prizes as shall compleat the same, . and Stamp all. their Tickets as having made their full Payments. • The Stock of the Company ( being L- 1,500,000 Sterling, or 16,5000,000 Guilders) as soon as this Lot- tery is fill'd, will be intrinsically worth 29 per Cent: in Money, besides the Advantages of Trading Free of Customs, 8cc. for forty Years ; the Lands given by his- Majesty to the Company for ever, and 15 per Cent, of what they lay out in building Houses, and other Ad.

On Saturday last, being the Anniversary of the King's Coronation, there was extraordinary Rejoice- ings throughout this City : At the Royal Exchange was a Bonefire and fine Fireworks, and at the End of Kingstreet in Cheapside, was erected a very large Bonefire, where several Sky Rockets were discharged, and a Barrel of Strong Beer given to the Populace , Long Life to His Majesty King GEORGE, to the Prince, Princefs, and all the Royal Family, were drank, with loud and repeated Huzza's ; the Bells were rung, and the Streets illuminated. In short, the whole Even- ing concluded with all possible Dcmonstrations of joy, without the least Disturbance to the Publick Peace or Tranquility. At Greenwich there was also a very large Bone- fire at the Charge of Sir John Jennings; at all these Places store of good Liquor was given to the Popu- lace, whose Numbers were larger than usual; where they drank all the Loyal Healths, and the Air eccho'd with the loud Huzza's of Long live King GEORGE, and the Royal Family; No Pretender ; no Rebels and speedy Justice to the Plotters.

On 283351 the neat Value remaining to the Adventurers is 76 4- per Cent. That is, the Share taken out by the Managers, is, in Proportion to the Share which remain's to the Adventurers, as 76 4 is to 100, or as 3 to 4, andforaewhat more. It is to be observed, that in the whole Management of this Lottery, no Notice is taken of the fictitious Sum of 1,500,000, nor any possible Occasion to make mention of it, ' till the Premium for the Managers comes to be computed: The utmost grofs Value of the Stock rais'd by the Lottery being but 4579997 out of which they being resolv'd to take 75000 /. to themselves for Management; ( besides j part of the Stock itself) which 7500O/. being 15 per Cent, on the real Stock, it was, thought necessary to make use of the Name of 1,500,000, that they might call it 5 per Cent, on that fiffitious Sum, which Sum might have been any thing else, without altering their Lottery 01 real Stock. If it had been ten Millions instead of One and a Half, 5 per Cent. 0n ten Millions had swept away the whole 500000.
