The C O U N T R Y J O U R N A L : M O R , T H E C R A F T S M A N. By C A L E B D ' A N V E R S , of G R A Y ' S - I N K , Efq>, S A T U R D A Y , S E P T E M B E R I$>, 1730. H E N an Acknowledgment was lately made that feveral Writers were retain'd againft us with Places and Penftons, We were in Hopes that the Great Man had referr'd our Dispute intirefy to the Prejs; but his Advocates have made fuch a wretched Ufe of this only fair Weapon, that He finds Himfelf obliged to remove the Caufe before another Tribunal, and to fupport it by another Kind of Argument- It cannot therefore be expefted that We ftiould carry on a formal Controverfy with thefe Men, who are fuperceded by more authoritative D if put ants. They have been long calling upon the fecular Arm; which hath at laft heard their Voice, and once more taken the Argument out of their Hands. We might as well difpute with Dimock, on a Coronation Day, as argue with thefe Writers• They ftrut, Vapour, throw down their Gauntlet, and defy us to take it up; at the fame Time that They have a Friend ftand- 5ng behind them, arm'd with a great Club to knock us down, if We oiler to do it. Even thi% general Comparifon may, for aught I know, be conftrued into a particular, treafonable Libel, by the fame Rules, which have been made Ufe of to explain fome other Paffiges in our late Papers. It may be faid by thefe Writers that the Bufinefs of Dimock, at a Coronation, is to affert the Kings Title to his Crown ; ergo, We claim a Right to difpute his Majeftys Title. They / hall not however intimidate us, by fuch far- Fetch'd invidious Conftruftions, from purfuing the Point, in which We are engaged, and explaining it at large to the Publick. The Methods, which They ufe to flop us in this Undertaking, are Themfelves Motives to urge us on and render the Profecution of it more neceffary every Day. / ant fo far from finding Reafon to evade, or to draw back; ( as a certain, polemical Prelate once faid) that I have fund great and, to me, irrefiftible Arguments to prefs forward; and to open and unfold the Doftrines flowing from thofe Principles much more widely and unrefervedly than I had before done. The Point, in which We are, at prefent, engaged, is to fliew that it is necefpiry to hep up a Spirit of Liberty, in order to preferve Liberty it Jelf. The Method, which We chofe to explain this Point, was firjl, by laying down the Principles of Liberty ; fetondly, by applying them to the molt remarkable Occurrences and Events of the Roman Government; and 3dly by illuftrating them, in the fame Manner, by an Abftrad of the Englijh Hi/ lory. We were no fooner enter'd upon this Undertaking, • than the Penfionary Writers of the Times began to exclaim againft a faBious, feditious, and at laft, a treafonable Defign of drawing Parallels. Inftead of applying our Principles, according to our profefs'd Intention, to the Purpofes of Liberty, They apply them to the Purpofes of FaBion ; and endeavour to prove that our Defign is to afperfe the prefent Reign by an hiftorical Reprefentation of Thofe, which are paft ; whereas it is manifeft that our only. Defign , in thefe Papers, is to fhew that the prefent Enjoyment of our Liberties is owing to the Spirit, which hath exerted itfelf through all Ages in its Defence; that our left and moftglorious Princes have given it the greateft Encouragement; and that Thofe, who have endeavoured to fupprefs it, have always proved the moft unfortunate. It appears likewife, from this Abftraft of the Englijh Hijlory, that moft of our unhappy Princes owed their Misfortunes to wicked Minifters and Favourites, who mifled them into deJlruBive Meafures, with a View to their own private Interejl and Ambition. It is, perhaps, this Part of our Defign, which hath given fo much Offence; and as They cannot falfify FaBs, They muft endeavour to pervert and wreit our Words to bad Meanings. Thefe Endeavours appear in all their Writings upon this Subjeft ; and it hath lately been afferted very roundly, that there is not a Virtue mentioned in one of our antient Kings with any other View than to infinuate that it hath no Parallel at prefent j nor any Vice mentioned, but to hint that there is a Parallel at prefent. According to this Method of Conftruflion and Application, it is impoffible to write Hiftory, to quote from Hiftory, or to apply any hiftorical Paffage to a Pointy in Difpute, without incurring the Imputation of intending a faBious, feditious or treafonable Parallel. If you endeavour to recommend the Virtues of z good Prince, fuch as Edward the Third, it may be represented that your Defign was to fhew that it hath no Parallel at prefent. If you think proper to expofe the Vices of a bad Prince, fuch as Richard the Second, by fhewing the Conferences of them, it may be faid that you do it with an Intention of hinting that there is a Parallel at prefent i fo that whether there is a Parallel, or there is no Parallel, you may be profecuted for a Libeller. The Cafe is exafUy the fame with Relation to the Hiftories of all Nations and of all Ages. Whether you condemn the Cruelties of a Nero, or praife the Clemency of a Trajan, your Writings are equally capable of fuch feditious and treafonable ConJlruBions- This Argument might be ftill prefs'd a great deal farther; and the whole Englijh Hijlory might be prov'd a Libel upon the prefent Government by the fame Rule of Interpretation ; for if a f a i t h f u l AbftraB of any Book is really treafonable, the Book itfelf muft be equally criminal ; and every Writer, who gives the fame Account of Edward III. or Richard II. that We have done, is as juft'y chargeable with the fame wicked Intention; nay every Bookfeller, who publifhes Kennefs, EachariTs or Rapids Hiftory, is as liable to a Profecution as Mr. Franckl'in. It is pleafant enough to obferve by what Methods They endeavour to turn our hiftorical Effays into Parallels. It happens very unluckily for us that King Richard, whofe Meafures We have lately condemn'd, was the SECOND Englijh Monarch of that Name; which being likewife the Cafe of his prefent Majejly, They conclude that there is a Parallel", and fo far, We muft confefs, their Argument holds good; as it will likewife in the Reigns of Charles and James the Second. In the next Place They take Notice that We have printed feveral Sentences in Italick CharaBers S which being a blind Sort of a Letter, They argue, with great Sagacity, that fome dark Meaning muft be couch'd under them. But if They meet with any Word diftinguifh'd in Capitals, They think the Cafe beyond all Doubt, and immediately pronounce us guilty of a Capital Offence. I often wonder that the weekly Advocates for Power have never infilled on two famous Inftances of Court- Profecutions in the Reign of Edward IV. to juftify their ironical ConJlruBions. One is That of a poor Grocer, who was hang'd, in that Reign, for faying that He would make his Son Heir of the Crown', alluding, either innocently or for the Sake only of a little Pun upon the Times, to his own Hotlfe, which bore the Sign of the Crown. The other Inflancew& s of a Gentleman, who was condemn'd as a Traytor, upon the following Account. The King having kill'd a favourite white Deer in his Park, He was fo much griev'd at his Lofs, that He fuffer'd himfelf to wilh, in a Tranfport of Paffion, that the Horns of the Deer tuere in the Belly of Him, who advised the King to do it. This was interpreted, by the State- Cafuifts of thofe Times, into a Defign of compaffing the Death of the King-, for, raid They, the King kill'd the Deer, without any Body's Advice; from whence it follow'd that the Gentleman wijtfd the Deer's Horns in the Kings own Belly ; innuendo, He had an Intention of murthering the King, which is High Treafom and He was executed accordingly. I cannot recolleft whether the Author of a Book, intitled The DoBrine of Libels difcuf/ d, hath digefted thefe two Cafes into his Code of State- Law i but if He hath not, I muft recommend them to his Confideration, and hope He will not omit them in the next Edition of that exquifite Performance- I will appeal to the Publick, ( for the Publick muft be the Judge in all Difputes of this Nature) whether even thefe Innuendoes were not much more juftifiable than Thofe which have been fix'd upon our Writings, in order to turn them into libellous Parallels', and whether it is pofiible for any Man to write Hijlory, or to give an Account of any Prince, good or bad, antient or modern, of this Nation or of any other, without drawing the fame Imputations upon Himfelf, if this Method of Conftruftion fhould prevail. I muft beg Leave to expoftulate very ferioutly, upon this Subjeft; not with the Writers againft us, ( for They have fhut their Ears to all Kind of Reafon, except Inter eft) but with every impartial Reader', with every true Friend of Liberty ; with every Lover of our prefent Con• ftitatioh. His late Majefty was gracioufly pleafed to encourage the Study of modern Hiftory, and to inftitute a Profeffor- Jhip in each of his Univerfities, with handfome Salarie » for this Purpofe^ Now I will leave any reafonable Man to judge what could be the Defign of this Inftitution; whether it was to encourage the Study of Hiftory, for the Sake of Adventures, and by Way of Amufemeni only, as idle People read Novels and Romances ; or whether it was to propagate Political Knowledge, and to make the prefent Age wifer by the Experience of the paft ' i by fearching into the great Springs of A& ion; by examining the true Caufe 3 of the Revolutions of Government; and by point, ing out the Meafures, which have made fome Kingdoms flourifh and redue'd others to Slavery and Ruin If it was with the latter Dejign, ( which is certainly the moft laudable) We hope it will not be judg'd criminal to purfue it ; and We cannot apprehend in what Manner it can be purfued more effe& ually than We have done in our late Papers. It is impoflible, in fuch an Undertaking, to avoid what may be call'd Parallels; becaufe even the beft and the worft Reigns may refemble each other in fome particular Circumftances. A good King, for Inftance, may have a very wicked Minifter, and be led into very wrong Meafures, as well as a bad King, _ If therefore We have mention'd any Thing blameable in the Conduft of former Reigns, which bears any Similitude to the prefent ( for there is no Reign abfolutely unblameable) ought it to be immediately infer'd that We mention'd it for the Sake of the Application; or, at leaft, with a Defign of vilifying and afperfing the prefent Reign ? May it not be more rcafonably fuppos'd that We mention'd it, in general, to fliew the bad Confequences of fuch ConduB in former Reigns, and to make the prefent Reign glorious by avoiding the fame Rock ? Nay fuppoflng we fhould , at any Time, find it neceflary to cenfure any Meafures, which we judge prejudicial to the Kingdom, I cannot fee how we could do it in a more modeft and decent Manner than by fhewing the bad Confequences of them in a former Reign. I apprehend This to be the great End and Privilege of the Liberty of the Prefs; which can be of no National Service, when fuch an Ufe of it is prohibited ; and even the worft Minifters need not contend for any farther Reftraint upon it. Had We mifreprefented the Hillory of former Reigns and foifted in Articles without any Authority, ( as our Adverfaries have lately charg'd us with doing, in the Cafe of Richard II.) We are ready to confefs there would be fome Reafon to fix fuch an Imputation upon us; for though We may be innocently miftaken in fome of our Remarks or Reafonings upon thofe Points, which fall under our Confideration ; yet a wilful Forgery in Matter of FaB muft proceed from an ill Defign; but We have iiifficientlyjuftified our felves, in our laft Paper, from the Guilt of that Charge, to the Confufion of Thofe, who brought it againft us. They are the Forgers; not We. Nay, had We fingled out one particular Reign to comment upon; it might be faid, with fome little Colour of Reafon, that We defigned to draw a Parallel', though I cannot fee how We could be proved guilty of writing a Libel, if We could juftify what We had faid from the Englijb Hiftory; bin as We have purfued the Subjeft of Liberty, in a regular Manner, through a Deduftion of Papers, there does not appear the leaft Foundation for fuch a Charge J unleS We are to fuppofe that the whole Body of the Roman and Engli/ h Hiftory is one continued Libel uppn the prefent Government. Having faid thus much in bur own Vindication, ( which We think fufficient at prefent,) We muft leave the World to judge what thofe Writers deferve, who, under the Pi etence of defending the Mixiftry, have really drawn an infamous Parallel between his prefent Majefty and one of the worft Princes that ever fat on the Englijh Throne. They have done This in fuch glaring Colours and in fo undifguis'd a Manner, that We cannot read it without . Horrour, and even to tranferibe their Words would indeed be a treafonable Libel, without the Help of an Innuendo. We cannot tell what Liberties fome Writers may be priviledg'd to take ; but if any Per/ an, near his Majtfty, encourages fuch vile Papers, to ferve his own private Purpojes, and makes Uie of his Power to propagate them through the Kingdo. ni, at the publick Expense, He faves us the Trouble of making any Application, and hath drawn a juft Parallel between Himfelf and the ivorft Mir. ifier of any Reign, which We have examin'd, in the Englijb Hiftory. • a s s e s s - * * - *^ To C A L E B D ' A N V E R S , EJq\ S I R , 1Remember that you or one of your Correfpondents, gave us, fome Time ago, a Differtation on Dogs; but I was fomewhat furpriz'd that you lhould not fay any Thing in Behalf of our Englijh Greyhounds', a Species of this Animal which deferved fome Notice, on Account of their Beauty and Ufefulnefs. They are tall, wellfhaped Creatures, and exceedingly fwift- footed, when halloo'd upon their Game. It is* for this Reafon, I prefume, that our Meffengers of State carry the Figure of a Greyhound on their Breafts, as a Badge of their Office ; and perhaps, This might likewife be the Reafon, that induced you to drop them in your Panegyrick on the Canine Race, as not altogether agreeable to your Defign; for the News Papers inform us that fome of your reputed Agents have been often courfed by thefe Cabinet Couriers ; particularly One, who was lately ftarted at Cogent- Gar Jen and having Jquatted, for fome Time, in Weftminfter, was at laft run down near Wind/ on but as He had the good Fortune to efcape being torn up by the Dogs; I hope the Hunt/ man will be fo kind as to give Him Lav once more.

Advices from Spain and France fay that the Marquis de Spinola, who was to have commanded the Spanijh Troops in the projefled Expedition, is fallen into Dipgrace ; the Reafon of which is faid to be Delay, fo precarious is the Fate of human Politicians, that what gave Fabius the Title of Maximus, and hath been the fole jMeritof fome other great State/ men, is imputed to this Gentleman as a Crime, by their Catholick Majejlies. The Buiinefs of the Expedition before- mention'd continues ftiU in Sufpence ; and the Civilities of our Catholick Allies, in the Weft- Indies, appear from the following ExtraO and DepofitUn. ExtraS of a Letter frtm Jamaieajlatei June 8th, 1730. We were in Hopes that the Treaty of Seville would have procured us fome Satisfaction, for the great Loffes we have fuftained by the Spaniards, or at Ieaft prevented their Infults and Depredations for the future; but to our great Mortification, we find the Infults of the Spaniards Sill continue ; and the Means of obtaining Redrefs for former Injuries are atterided. with fo many Difficulties, that the unhappy Sufferers ( especially thofe who refide In this remote Part of the World) had much better fit down with their Lofs than go to Madrid, at the Expence of their Time and Money, and Lofs of their Buiinefs. This Confideration may perhaps encourage them In their illegal Praftices, of which feveral very late Inftances may be given i tho' I need only refer you to the inclofed Affidavit, which is very full and fufficient to my Purpofe. The Depofition of W I L L I A M A N N Y S , Mailer of the Brigantine Hannah's Hope of London. This Deponent, being duly fworn, depofeth and faith, that he failed from Philadelphia in North America the 17 th of April laft, bound to this Ifland direftly; that he did not touch, or intend to touch, at any other Port or Place; that in his Paflage hither on the 17th of May laft, off the S. E. Cape of Hfpanhla, he was chafed by two Sloops, one of which coming up with him foon after, hoifted S P A N I S H Colour*, and fired one of his after Guns at the faid Brigantine, then reach'd under her Lee within Piftol ( hot, and fired 50 or 60 fmall Arms, hailed her, and ordered their Boat on board, or they would fink her. That the other Sloop upon coming up likewife hailed her, demanded from whence fhe came, what they were loaded with, and ordered her Boat on board. Upon which this Deponent did fend his Boat with four Men on board them, one of which was his Mate, who was examined by them concerning the Loading of the faid Brigantine, from whence ihe came, and where bound to. This Deponent further faith, that while his Men were under Examination, the Lieutenant of each Sloop, with fourteen Men, came on Board the faid Brigantine, enter'd the Cabbin, fecur'd their Arms, and cried a Buen Prize; that they beat and drove the Men belonging to the faid Brigantine about the Decks, held Piftols at their Breafts, and threaten' 4 them with Death if they did not confefs where their Money wasj That one of the Lieutenants demanded this Deponent's Watch, and another belonging ta a Pafleriger, which he took; then? Ordered the Lockers to be opened, and took from thence Wine and crher Liquors, which he and his Men drank, and carried with them. That they broke open his People's Chefts, and took out their Cloaths and fuch Neceflaries as they had, and then made Sail for Savona, where they anchored; that about Noon the Day following one of the Spanijh Sloops anchored by them, and fent a Boat on Board feveral Times, but what fhe carried with her this Deponent cannot pofitively declare, being kept clofe Prifoner; That foon after they weighed and anchored at a Harbour Weft of Catalona, where they lay from eight at Night till feven the next Morning, where the Captain of one of the Spanijh Sloops, named Pelancho, as this Deponent was informed, came on board, and demanded the R « afon of his being on their Coafts ; to which this Deponent anfvvered, that he was under a Neceffity of making fbme Part of Hijpaniola, in their Paflage to " Jamaica, and that he had no Defign to trade there. That the faid Pelancho ordered the long Boat to be loaded with Bread, and enquired what was the prime Coft, and computed the Weight at 70 Hundred, for which he drew a Draft on himfelf, payable at Carthagena for 210/. which he figned, JoJeph Floranto, though his Name is Pelancho, as this Deponent was informed by fome of his People. That the faid Pelancho required a Receipt for the fame, which this Deponent was under a Neceffity of figning, being apprehenfive of worfe Treatment if he did not; that he was informed by the People belonging to the faid Spanijh Sloops, that they were fitted out from Carthagena, and commiffioced as Guarda Coft a a that one of them, commanded by Capt. Pelancha, was named De la- Popa, the other the Sta. Maria, but the Commander's Name this Deponent doth not remember : This Deponent further faith, that according to the beft Computation he is able to make the Value of the Goods taken from him by the faid Pelancho and his Men amounted to about, Four hundred and fifty Pounds, Jamaica Money, and further faith not W I L L I A M A N HIS.

We have had a bloody Tragedy perpetrated lately in this River, for on the 25th of laft Month the Eipperor of Fonca, which is on the South- Side of this River, oppofite to our Fort, was horribly maffacred with his Family, by his rebeflious Subjects, who comiug fuddenly in the Night- time, fet Fire to his Houfe in his Capital Town, permitting none to come out, and burnt him, his Mother, feven Wives, two Brothers, and moft of his Children and Servants to Death. Extralt of a Letter from Palermo, dated Aug. 16. Yefterday being the Feftival of the Aflumption of the Bleffed Virgin, and, according to Cuftom, a Day of Joy, happen'd to prove a Day of Deftruclion. A great Proceffion being made every Year out of this City on the Anniverfary, as it return'd back a terrible Fire broke out at a Houfe in the great Street, and as no proper Means could be immediately come at to extinguiih the Flames, and the Wind blowing very ftrong, the neighbouring Houfes, and afterwards many more, took Fire, fo that tfie Buildings between the Gate of Vienna and the Arfenal were all laid in Afhes ; among which were the College of Jefuits, and the Great Tower, in which laft the Bells were melted by the Vehemence of the Heat. The Church of the Carmelites and the Town- Houfe are alfo burnt; but we had the good Luck, however, to fave the Records. About Seven o'Clock in the Evening the Powder Magazine of the Royal Baft ion, in which were 400 Barrels . of Powder, blew up into the Air, with a moft dreadful Noife, whereby not only Part of the Baftion, but alfo a great Number of Buildings were demolifh'd, and many People perifh'd in the Ruifls. Soon after this the Arlenal and all the Houfes about it blthv up likewife ; as alfo-'. the fmall Magazine, wherein were 3. great many filled Bombs, Carcafles and Grenadoes. The Magazine in the lower Town is yet fafe, but is in great Danger. The Barracks for the Soldiers, the Governor's Hosfc, and that of the Corps du Guard,- are alfo deftroy'd; but little remains in that Part, except ftie Cloifter of Francifcans, that of the Nuns of St. Cecilia, and the- great Powder Magazine of the Bailiou of Leopold. The Wind was fo very high that the Sparks of Fire wire carried as far as the neighbouring Villages, the Damage occafioned by this Conflagration is inexpref- — fible, the Governor having loft 20,000 Rix- dolkrs in Plate and Moveables. The following if the Copy of a Poftfrript to a Letter, dated at James River in Virginia, July 30, 1730. We have- at this Lift, an Account of an Infurre& ion of the Negroes about Williamsburgh, occafioned by a Report at Colonel Spbtfwood's. Arrival, that he had Direction from his Ma. jefty to free all baptized Negroes ; many Mafters and Iviiftreffes having baptized their Slaves, in order to inftruft them in the Chriilian Faith : The People of Diftinftion took Notice of this, and the Negroes have improved it to a great Height : ' Tisfaid fome of the Ringleaders are taken : Five Counties are in Arms purfuing others, with Orders to kill them if they do not fubmit. L O N D O N , September 19. We have an Account from Walpole in Suffolk of an ecceflive Storm of Rain laft Week, with Thunder and Lightning fo terrible, that a Farmer's Houfe near Pea-, fen- Hall was fet on Fire by the Lightning, and foon laid in Afhes, with moft Part of the Furniture, as alfo a Barn full of Com ; and a Man was ftruck down dead inftantly. A private Letter, dated Conftantinople, July 25. O. S. confirms the Turks Preparations for a War, and adds, that they appear very much in earneft: Thai the Grand Signor and Vizier, and all the Court, are paffed over into Alia, and have formed a Camp beyond the Scutary, and give out they will rertiain there forty Days, to wait the Return of their Meflenger from Perfia„ and take Meafures accordingly : That if a War fhould break out, the Grand Signior will go to Adrianople, and the Grand Vizier, together with the Army, will winter at Aleppo ; and that ' tis thought M. Tahlman, the German Refident, will follow the Camp. They write from Deal, Sept. 13., that the Day before arrived there the America, Capt.
