YEsterday was the Anniversary of the Birth- Day of the Prince of Wales, when his Royal Highness entered into the 41st Year of his Age: On which Occasion he was complimented in the Morning by the Lord justices, and by a great Number of the Nobility and Persons of Distinction. The Day was with ringing of Bells and other Rejoycings: At One in the Afternoon the Guns were fired ar the Tower- and at Night there were Bonfires and Illuminations in divers Places' and fine Ball at Liecester House. ' The same Day the Prince gave a Purse to be distributed amongst the poor of St- Anne's Parish. Yesterday at three in the Afternoon died his House in Lincoln's Inn Fields, Sir James Montague, Knt. Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer; Last Night was inter'd in the Chappel in Stretton's Grounds, West- minster, a Person of such prodigious Parts, and eminent Gravity, than there were eighteen men to carry his Corpse on a Bier, which tho' it was made for that purpose, it was apprehended, would break before they, got to the Chappel ; The Grave was with Steps at each End, it being im- possible to let it down with Ropes. The Corpse and Coffin are reproted to have weigh'd 17 hundred Weight, and were of so exorbitant a Bulk, 1 not being able to get them out at the Door, they were forc'd to take the Sashes down, and let them by Tackles out at the Windows. - _ FOREIGN < 4 > FOREIGN NEWS. petersbourgh, ( a new Town and Fortress founded by the Muscovites in 1703.)

They write from Madrid, that the King of Spain has ordered 9 Men of War to be built in his Yard's in the Provinces of Biscay and Guipuscoa; and that his Catholiek Majesty has made the Marquis de S, Michael a Lord of his Bed- chamber, in Reward for the new Settlement he has made in the Philippines, of 240 Leagues in Circumference 5 for building four Forts at his own Expence; for reparing six of the Missionaries Churches, and building three new ones.

Monday last died at his Seat in Fair Lane near Seven Oak in Kent, in the 70th Year of his Age, the Right Honourable Christopher Vane, Ba- ron Barnard of Barnard Castle in the Bishoprick of Durham, who was created a Baron july 8. 1699, by King William III. of Glorious Memo- ry. The Vanes, his Ancestors, were anciently a Family in Wales, and from thence settled in Kent, where they have continued many Years. The first of them mentioned in History wAs Sir Henry Vane, knighted by the Black Prince at the Siege of Boulogne, whose Brother John left two Sons, Henry, from whom the Deceased Lord descended, and Richard, from whom descended the present Earl of Westmorland. Sir Henry Vane, who was Grandfather to our Lord Barnard was in the Time of King Charles I. Ambassadour Extraordinary, first to the States of Holland, and after to the King of Sweden and at his Return Home was made first Comptroller, and then Treasurer of the Houshold to his Majesty, and af- terwards Secretary of State. Sir Henry Vane, his Lordship's Father, was made Treasurer of the Navy by Patent for Life, by King Charles I f 7 J and in the Dutch Wars, his Fees at 4d per Pound ammounted to no less than 20 or 300001. per Ann. which he looked upon as too much for a private Subject, and very generoucly gave up his Patent to the then Par- liament, desiring but 20001. per Annum for an Agent he had bred up to the whoce Buisness, and the Remainder to go to the Publick. This was done, and the Method of the whole Salary has continued ever since in that Office. The Deceased married the Lady Elizabeth, eldest Daughter to Gilbert Earl of Clare, and Sister to John Duke of Newcastle, by whom he has Issue two Sons, viz. Gilbert Vane, Efq; now Lord Barnard, who succeeds to the Honour, and an Estate of 10 or 12000I. per Annum and married Mary, Daughter to Morgan Randyl, Esq; of Chilworth in Surry, and William, who married Lucy, Daughter to William Joliffe, Esq; of Carse- mell in Staffordshire ; also one Daughter named Grace. We hear that Mr. Murray in Covent- Garden, who about three Months since drew the Picture of Queen Philippa Mother of the Black Princess, and Foundress of Queen's College in Oxford, and which is since placed up in the Hall of that College, has lately finish'd a fine Whole- Length Pic- ture of Robert de Eaglefield, the Confessor of the said Queen, in the Priest's Habit of that Time, who contributed largely to the Foundation of that College, and is esteem'd a Co- Founder with her. Which Picture is shortly to be sent down and placed up in the aforesaid Hall, next the said Queen's Picture. MONDAy's POST, From the British Journal, LONDON, November 2. N Friday last Week, as the Lord Chancellor was hearing Causes at his House in Lincolns Inn Fields, a Rogue had the Boldness to steal away the Porters Staff, headed with Silver, from behind the Door, and carried it off undiscover'd.

It was happily extin- guish'd before it came to a Head. From our Portsmouth Letters of the 29th Instant. " According to my Promife I now send you an Account of some of the *• Loffes of the Smugglers here this last Fortnight.

Eight Anchors of Brandy were found conceal'd in the House of a " small Dealer in that Liquor at Gosport the 18th ^ and the Penalty of " keeping it in an unentred Place, will equal the Loss of the Brandy.
