• - Numb, 2923 The London Evening- Post. . From TUESDAY July 29, to THURSDAY July 31, 1746, Batavia., October 20, 1745. WE are extremely sensible here, of the great Genius and inde- fatigable Application of his Excellency Baron Imhoff, who, sinCe his being in this Country in Quality of Governor Gene- ral, has neglected nothing that could be desir'd, and has done many Things that were never before thought of, nor proba- bly would have been thought of by any but himself, for promoting Commerce and the . Publick Good. He has establish'd several Companies here by Charters, or, as we stile them, Octroys, under proper Restrictions, for managing particular Branches of Trade that have not been hitherto improv'd ; and he has ad- justed the Terms in such a Manner, as that whilst the interests of Persons concern'd are consulted, those of the Company are not forgot. He has also erected a College for the Education of such as are intended for the Service of the Church, and in which there will be bred up thir- ty six Scholars at a Time it is intended that they shall be instructed in the Portugueze, Malayan, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew Languages, as well as Philosophy, History, Geography, Chronology, and the Mathematicks, that they may be the more able to succeed in preaching the Christian Religion through all Parts of the Indies, This Seminary is divided into five Classes, each of which has proper Masters. There is another Thing hitherto alto- gether unthought of, which his Excellency has likewise provided for, and that is, the setting up a publick Ga- zette here, in which will be contain'd all the News from the different Parts of the East, so as to secure as regular an Account of what is done in China, Siam, Pegu, & c. as is to be found in the European Gazettes of what is tranfacted in France, Spain, and Italy. There is no Doubt we shall reap considerable Fruits from these Re- gulations, which in the mean Time give us great Satis- faction and Pleasure. Madrid, July it. King Ferdinand has confirm'd all the Courtiers in their Employments; notwithstanding which, some Alterations are talk'd of after the. Funeral of the late King. Petersburg, July TZ. ' Tis said that the Activity and Success of the approaching Diet of Poland will depend chiefly on the Negotiations of the Count de Vitzhum, who is coming hither with the Character of Embassador Extraordinary All that we know concerning the Impa- Army assembled in Livonia is, that the Cavalry have Forage only to the End of July, and that Orders have been given to exercise frequently all the Corps, both Infantry and Horse, that compose it. M. D'Allion having lately receiv'd a Courier from Versailles, we are assur'd he has told our Ministers, That his Most ' Christian Majesty has been much surpriz'd to hear, ' that, according , to the general Report, the numerous ' Troops which the Empress has assembled, for some Time past upon the Frontiers of Poland, were de- to act offensively against France, in Favour of the Courts of Vienna and London, notwithstanding the repeated Declarations of his Ministers, concerning his Majesty's Disposition to accept the Mediation offer'd by Russia for an Accommodation, while the Courts both of London and Vienna had absolutely re- fused to listen to her Imperial Majesty's pacifick In-. tentions.' It is not yet known what Answer was given to this Minister; but we are persuaded, that whatever may be the Resolutions of the Court, they were not taken ' till after mature Deliberations, and will not be departed from, whatever Representatioas may be made to the contrary. Stockholm, July 19. It is pretended that the great Ar- maments of Russia, which still continue, begin to ex- cite the Attention of this Court, especially since it is given out that several Russian Garrisons upon our Fron- tiers have been reinforced. Certain, however, it is, that the Russian Ministers, from Time to Time, renew the strongest Assurances that this Kingdom has abso- lutely nothing to fear from those Armaments; and we perceive that the French Emissaries are the only Persons who spread the contrary Reports, in order, it possible, to set our Court against that of Petersbourg, and by that Means carry her own Point. We hear from Got- tenbourg, that another Fire has broke out there, but that such effectial Means were taken to stop its Pro- gress that only one House was reduced to Ashes. By the combustible Matters that are found in many Places, this is thought to he the Work of some Incendiary, and a Reward of 500 Silver Crowns is offer'd for any one who can discovcr the Offender. Paris, July 25. It has been resolv'd that the young Princess, of whom the Dauphiness was lately deliver'd, shall be provisionally distinguish'd by the Title of Madam. Another Courier is arriv'd at Versailles from the Bishop of Rennes, the King's Minister at Madrid. His Dis- patches bear Date the nth, and confirm the Contents of the preceding, with regard to the new King's Disposi- tions. ' tis certain that his Catholick Majesty appears firmly resolv'd to maintain the Engagements that sub- sist between his House and the Crown of France ; but he had signified, at the same Time, that being fill'd with true Affection for the spanish Nation, he will endea- vour to make it enjoy, as soon as possible, the Advan- tages of Peace, provided he can obtain it upon honour- able Conditions, without Prejudice to the Interest of the Princes to whom he is united by Blood. Amsterdam, Aug. The more the Publick regrets the Loss of the late Mr. Samuel Van de Putte, the famous Traveller, the more Reason there is to hope they will be pleas'd with such Papers of his as can be recover'd and preserv'd. It is with this View, and to encourage others who may have more valuable Fragments of his in their Hands, that we send abroad the following Ex- tract of a Letter written by him, July 19, 1742, from Pattena. To Mr. John Albert Sichterman, Counsellor Extraordinary of the Indies, and Director of Bengal. ' After quitting Lhasa, the Capital of Thibet, I pass'd thro' all the Great Tartary, or Asiatick Scythia of the Antients, quite to the North of China, tra- versing Countries which are not so much as mention'd in our Charts, if we except Lukanoor ; which is as much as to say, the Blue Sea, so call'd by the Elut Tartars, because the Surface of the Water appears to be of that Colour. I had passed in three different Places that famous and incomparable Barrier, which the Emperors of China have rais'd some Ages ago, to defend their Country from the Incursions of the Tar- tars, and I have now pass'd it the fourth time, under a fictitious Name, after having disguis'd myself the best I could, and under Pretence of Sickness, concealing as much as possible, whatever might discover me to be an European, and particularly my blue Eyes. It was by the Help of a numerous Train of Camels belonging to a Lama, ojr Great Priest, and by holding one of those Animals by the Bridle, that I had the very good Fortune to escape the Vigilance of the Chineze Guards, who, since the Beginning of the War, which still con- tinues between the Emperor of China and the Sion- gares, have receiv'd repeated Orders not to let any Person pass or repass that wonderful Wall, without having a Passport from a Mandarin. Such was the Method I took, and having once got into the Coun- try, I continued my Journey to Peking. As it was not possible for me on account of the before- mention'd War, to find an Opportunity of going from, that Ca- pital into Russia; and, as there was likewise no Pos- Ability of getting to Canton on account: of the Perse- cution of the Christians ; I took my Route through the Upper China, or by the Western Provinces, tra- versing a very mountainous Country, which is not particularly describ'd in our Charts, and repass'd Lhasa, of which I have spoken before. I pursu'd my Journey from thence by the Sources of the Ganges, through the charming District of Cachimir, and pas- sing through the Lesser Guzurat, and by Lahor ; I am now arriv'd at Indostan., & c. From the London Gazette. ' At the CAMP of Allied Army at Viler Aug. 3. Count Daun has been detach'd ever since the 26th with 10,000 Men upon our Right Flank: General Trips, with a Corps of Hussars and Pandours, is ad- vanced a little March from him upon his Right Flank ; and Baronai, with another Corps and our Free Compa-. nies, is Half a March in the Rear of Count Daun, upon his Right Flank also: Every Party of the Enemy that appears is attack'd, and generally with Success. The first Instant we pass'd the Mehaigne in six Columns and march'd in Order of Battle, the Cannon at the Head of each Battalion, and encamp'd our Right at Wasseige, our Left towards Longechamp and Ostin, Count Daun, between Athe and Sr. Germains, General Trips at Athe, and the Pandours advanced to St. Den- nis: Count Lowendahl was then, at Judoigne with 14,000 Men, Count Clermont between that and Tirle- mont with 1o, ooo, 15oo in Gemblours, the French Grand Army still behind Louvain, raising Redoubts, & c. They are call'd 80,000, and the whole is believ'd to be 130,000 Men. An Hour after our Arrival on this Side the Mehaigne, the Marshal had Advice that Count Lowendahl had march'd 10 Gembours and Sombref with all his Corps; that Marshal de Saxe, by very forced Marches, was come from Louvain to Con- roy and the Seven Stars; and that the Prince of Conti had made a Detachment from Charleroy to reinforce him. Upon this our Corps de Reserve was immediately order'd to march to support Count Daun and Prince Charles, with the other Generals in Chief, went the next Morning with all the Grenadiers to St. Denis, about a Mile from Count Lowendahl's Body, to see if it was possible to attack him ; but they found him cover'd by the River of Gemblours, Woods and large Redoubts, at which they work'd all Night, and also supported by Count Saxe's whole Army, and therefore the Design was not practicable. Charleroy has surren- der'd in less than three Days from the opening of the Trenches before it. The Enemy are now within Sight of us at the strong Camp of Gemblours, and the Prince of Conti at Fleurus. A Battery is to be planted this Night to dislodge them from the Castle of Mazy. Na- mur is out of all Danger of being besieg'd. Yesterday Morning the Hussars took sixty Men and five Officers, Prisoners, and kill'd 40. Another Party kill'd 300 French Pandours, Deserters from our Army and brought into Sr. Denis also another Party of 40 Swiss, taken within Musket Shot of the French Camp. Hague, Aug. 2. By our last Accounts, Prince Charles's Head Quarters were on the 29th past at Warem, near Leige. We hear that the French have sent off all their heavy Baggage to Brussels; this Step, and the Posi- tion of the two Armies, raise the greatest Expectation of the next News from that Quarter ; tho' the Return of the French King is fix'd at but the 10th Instant. Letters of the 19th past from the Austrian Army upon the Po, confirm the Junction and Joint Commands ha- ving taken place on the 16th; and add, that every Thing was prepar'd for entring upon Action; tWo Bridges have been thrown by his Sardinian Majesty over the Po below, and two above Placentia. Our Advices from Paris say positively, that the Brest Fleet and Transports are sail'd for America. Hague, Aug. J. The Letters of the 23d past from the Combined Army upon the Trebia, speak of the prepa- rations still continuing for its passing the Po ; and fix the th ditto for the Execution of it. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, July 24. Captain Millar writes from South Uist, that he was in close Pursuit of the Pretender, WHO had made his Escape to the Island of Sky, and from thence to the Main- land in Lady Clanronald's Cloaths; Our Army is in a Line betwixt Inverary and Fort William, and 1000 Men scouring the Hills Yesternight Lieutenant General Hawley arriv'd here ., from the Army. From Perth, that Semple's, wolf's, and Pulteney's Regiments lying there, are to march from thence for Kinghorn the latter End of this Week ; and to embark on Monday the 28th. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, July 16.

LONDON We are credibly inform'd that his Cathorlick Majesty, the late King of Spain, has by his Will left the Re- version of his Crown, after his own Sons, to the Right Hon. W P -, Esq; - - - About three Weeks ago Sir William Duckenfield Daniel, of Duckenfield and Tabley, Bart. and Thomas Assheton, jun. of Ashley and Holford in Cheshire, Esq; lately Captains in the Right Hon. the Earl of Cholmon- deley's Regiment, were married at Chester; the former to Miss Vernon, Sister to Henry Vernon, of Hilton.

On Monday Night died, Mr. Richard Carter, Master of the Queen's- Head Tavern in Thames- Street, near Gar- lick- Hill. Last Tuesday died Thomas Hucks, Esq; an eminent and wealthy Brewer in Southwark. A few Days since the Rev. Mr. Gibson, Son of the Bishop of London, resign'd his Prebend of Sr. Paul's in favour of his elder Brother, who was immediately in- ducted into the same. The three Scotch Lords now under Conviction are all of very antient Families, that had distinguish'd them- selves before they were rais'd to the Peerage. The Title of Elphingston Lord Balmerino bears date in 1604, and the Father of the present Lord was in the Reign of Queen Anne elected one of the sixteen Peers to serve in the Parlia- ment of Great Britain. The first Boyds, Earl of Kilmar- nock, was so created by King Charles II. in 1661. Mackenzie, Earl of Cromartie was raised to that Dignity -- in 1688, by King James II. ( of Scotland VII.) in Person of Sir George, a Man famous both as a Scholar and a Soldier, Before the Lords proceeded to give their Votes on Monday last, whether the Lord Balmerino was Guilty or not, one of the Bishops mov'd in behalf of himself and the rest of the Bishops, for Leave to withdraw, which was accordingly granted, it not being customary for the Bishops to Vote on such Occasions.

A Translati0n of the BuCOLICS and the AEnEiDS, in Quarto and Octavo, with Notes, are preparing for the Press by Dr. MARTyN , and will be publish'd with all SPeed. Some Observations on the real and peculiar Virtues of the LIQUID SHELL, Discovered by the learned and ingenious Baron Schwanberg,' a Nobleman of Mechlinburgh. in Germany, who was well known to the learned throughout Europe, for his extensive Knowledge in the most abstruse Operations in Chemistry ; which, to Demonstration, is proved to be a Dissolvent for the STONE and GRAVEL. THE Rev. Dr. HALES, and others, have demon- strate'd by various Experiments, That the Virtues of the celebrated Medicine of Mrs. Stevens, for the Gravel and Stone, and, for the Discovery of which, the Parliament of Great Britain gave a Reward of 5oool. depend entirely upon the Salts of Lime in the Alicant Soap, and calcin'd Shells -, but: the enormous Dose of that Medicine renders it so nauseous, that it is almost impossible to take it in a Manner sufficient to answer. any good End. Now the ingenious Baron Schwanberg discover'd a Method of procuring calcin'd Shells, which is the strongest Species of Lime, in a Liquid Form ; yet not in the least corrosive, which, in his Lifetime, he communicated to Walter Baker, his particular Friend ; who since his Decease, has improv'd, and publish'd it to the World, in so neat a Manner, that, if taken in a small Quantity, it will give almost immediate Re- lief in the most violent Pains of the Gravel and, if duly persisted in, will, in Time, dissolve a Stone in the Urinary passages, when too large to pass ofF otherwise. And it is remarkable, that those who take it for the Stone have a Sediment in their Urine, resembling powder'd Chalk: Now, that this Sediment is a Portion of the Stone dissolv'd, is evident from an Experiment in the Power of every one to make; for, put an human Stone, form'd in the Urinary Pas- sages, into a Vial of, the Liquid- Shell and in Time, it will gradually dissolve into a white powder, exactly resembling that in the Urine of Persons who take it as a Medicine for the Stone, without any Heat. But, in order to prove it much more Efficacious, when taken - into the Body, let a Stone be put into a Vial of the Liquid- Shell, in a moderate Sand - Heat, it will in few Hours be dis- solv'd, or broken to Pieces; which no Menstruum besides, yet known, unless corrosive, was ever capable of perforating. This Medicine is safe, the Dose small, and so far from being unpleasant, that a Person who nauseates Physick, may with Pleasure take it; for it makes little or no Alteration in the Human Body, unless making Urine, and expelling Wind. But if it meets with an Acid in the Stomach, being a grand Alkali, it gently purges, and carries the Cause entirely off. Dr. Robert James, Author of the Medicinal Dictionary, ij Three Volumes, Folio, under the Article Calculus, speaking of Mrs. Stephens's Medicine for the Gravel and Stone, says, That M. Schwanberg, ( whom he personally knew ) a Ger- man Gentleman, extremely well versed in the most abstruse Operations of Chymistry, had a Method of making calcined Shells limpid as Rock Water, extremely alkaline, tho not cor- rosive :' And that he had, Known great Relief produced by it in Nephritic Disorders And what is pretty sUrprizing, will, upon the Affusion of a particular Fluid into a Glass of this Medicine, be instantly converted into a white powder, resembling fine Basket- Salt; which, when washes off and the Powder dried, is exactly the Shell restor'd to its former State. This Experiment the Proprietor will, if desir'd, shew the Curious. It is also an absolute Cure for the Wind CholiC and all Kinds of Flatulences; and, by Experience, is found to be so innocent, that it may be taken by a Child in the Month ; and proves the best Remedy known for Gripings. Fevers, Con- - vulsions, and those Uneasinesses, which Children are subject to, from Acidities, the well- known Cause of most of their Disorders: Nor is it attended with the general bad Effects of Opiates, which only give a temporary Relief; but afterwards do a great deal of Prejudice, by exciting Costiveness, a Con- sequence that proves fatal to Thousands of Children. Tiie Bottles are seal'd, as in the Margin, with Baron Schwanberg's Coat of Arms, viz. A Field Gules, charged with a Swan proper, supported by two Greyhounds, with a Marquis's Coronet. By Appointment of the Proprietor, Walter Baker, it is sold Wholesale only, by William and Cluer Dicey, and Comp. at Dr. Bateman's Warehouse in Bow Church- Yard, London, and at their other Warehouse in Northampton; at loth which Places it is alfo fold Retale, Price is. 6d. the fmall Vial.

SO highly esteem'd by Ladies of Distinc- tion and the finest Women in Europe, has for several Years stood the Test against many vain Endeavours to imitate its now allow'd superior Excellency to all other Things. For it gives an inexpressible Air to the Features of the Face on the Spot, and a surprising Handsomeness to the Neck and Hands, which it makes exceedingly smooth, fine. and delicately white. It takes away all disagreeable Redness, Spots, Pimples, Heats, Roughness, Morphew, Worms in the Face, Marks of the Small Pox, Sun- burn, or any other Discolouring removes all Wrinkles, making the Skin become incomparably fine, clear, plump, soft, and beautifully fair, to Admiration. It causes sparkling Life, Spirit, and juvenile bloom to reign in every Feature, and yet is nothing of Paint, but far excceds it, by bringing the Skin, whether of the Face, Neck, or Hands,. and tho' brown, red, or rough, to a natural, youthful Fairness, Smoothness, and Delicacy, which Paint only faintly imitates; neither is this ROYAL BEAUTIFYER prepared from the least particle of Mer- cury, or anything Metalline, but is so harmless it may be given inwardly even to Children. It has also a pleasant Scent, will not soil the finest lawn, is very agreeable to use, and can be had only at Mr Radford's Toyshop at the Role and Crown against St. Clement's Church- yard in the Strand, at 3 s. 6 d. a Bottle, with Directoins, and no where else in England. The HEMORRHOIDS or PILES. A very troublesome Distemper, common to many Persons of both Sexes, and all Ages, and if neglected, or ill ma- nag'd, often proving. dangerous in the Consequences and being seldom thoroughly cur'd without Relapse, IS the Reason of this Publication that all such Persons of either Sex, or any Age, may know where t0 have present relief, and in a few days a perfect cure let their Case be ever so bad, or the Piles of any Kind, viz. inward or outward, swell'd or bleeding, or of the very worst sort that ever was known. By a pleasant and delightful Chymical powder, so certain in its Ef- fects, that not one in five thousand that take it miss of a cure ; and safe in Operation, that the most aged, or even young Infant's, may take it with the greatest safety, for it neither purges nor causes the least disorder to the Patient, only operates gently by Urine and keeps the Body cool and temperate ; but it very powerfully rectifies. both the Blood and juices, takes off the Acridness thereof, which is the, true Cause of this Distemper, and destroys it Root and branch, as the many Thousands that have taken it find to their unspeakable Comfort and satisfaction. It is sold for 5 s. 6 d. cach box, at Mr. King's Picture shop in the Poultry, near the Royal Exchange; and at Mr. Martin's Shop, the Sign oi the Duke of Cumberland in CranboUrn- Alley. near Leicester fields, and no where else in England, the GRAND SPECIFICS: for cleansing and strengthening the Reins, & c.

Also any Weaknesses of the Vessels from Wrenches, Strains, Blows, Sec. and all Other ObstructionS in the Urinry Passages, even Stranguaries Ulcers, & c. This, noble Specifick is also of singular and very extraordinary Use and efficacy, where there is any Gravel or small Stones, Slime, or any other Matter that obstructs the Urine ; bringing all away in a few Times taking, as has been happily experienced by great Numbers of both Sexes; and particularly, by a Gentleman whose Case has often been mention d in ths Advertisement, by a Certificate of his Cure; who in taking but a little of this noble Specifick, voided above an Ounce of Gravel, One Bottle in most Cases is sufficient for a perfect Cure.

ADEFENCE of several PROPOSALS for raising of three Millions for the Service of the Govern- ment, for the Year 1740 . with a postscript, containing some Notions relating to publick Credit. 0 JOHN BARNARD, Knt. Printed for J. Osborn at the Golden Ball in Pater- noster Row . LONDON. The Court at Westminster, being set Yesterday Morning after the time Manner as on Monday last, and the three peers there convicted of High- Treason, being brought to the bar to receive Sentence; the Lord High Steward ask'd Lord Kilmarnock, if he had any Thing to offer why Judgment of Death should not pass upon him ? To which he reply'd, he could say nothing in Arrest of Judgment, but desir'd Leave to speak a few Words, which being granted, he said, That ever since he had been capable of Judging, for himself, he had, by all his Actions, whenever he was in his Power, endeavour'd to shew the strictest Attachment to his present Majesty ; that he had a Son who had the Honour to bear his Ma- jsty's Commission, who by all his Actions had fully testi- fied he had educated him in the highest Notions of re- volution Principles, which were the same he was taught , by the best of fathers, without which, it was im- possible for the Liberties, & c. of the nation to subsist; that he did not engage in the Rebellion. ' till late, viz. after the Battle ot Preston Pans, and that it had been his constant Care the whole Time of his being with them, to prevent as much Mischief as possible, being commit- ted upon his Majesty's Subjects, Soldiers, or others ; that he might very easily have got off at the Time he surrender'd, being pursu'd by none, out being sensible he must preserve his Life by the same Methods which had been unhappily made use of for the Destruction of his Country, he chose rather to Submit to his Majesty's Mercy : That he had heard the French King had inter- fered, on Pretence of getting Pardon for them: That he abhorred the Thoughts of a French King's presuming to dictate to a King of Britain how he should treat his of- fending Subjects, and if he had any Mercy, should only desire to receive it by the Intercession of Britons-, but if Justice would not permit Mercy to take Place, he should with his last Breath pray for his Majesty's Posterity, and the Prosperity of his Country. The Earl of Cromartie recommended himself to the King's Mercy, and desir'd their Lordships Intercession. As for the Lord Balmerino, pleaded that the Grand Jury of Sur- rey had no Right to find Bills against him as being at the taking the City and Castle or Carlisle, since it had not been all prov'd that he was present thereat; he therefore said, if they had no Right to find Bills against him, he humbly mov'd the Indictment might be quash'd, or that he might be allow'd Council: The Lords after some Debate agreed he should have Council assign'd. him, and accordingly at his Request Mr. Wilbraham and Mr. Forrester were appointed , and the Lords or- der'd him to prepare for Judgment on Friday. We hear that both houses of Parliament will rise some Day next Week. And, That the Earl of Kellie and the Lord Lovat will not be tried ' till the Meeting of the Parliament again. Last Tuesday a Reprive for three Weeks was sent to the Sheriff of Surrey for the following Rebel Prisoners, viz. Charles Deacon, William Battraugh, John Saun- derson, Christopher Taylor, James Wildey, Thomas Furnival, James Gadd, and Alexander Abernethy. Yesterday Morning, about Eleven o'Clock, the other nine Manchester Rebels were carry'd from the New- Gaol, Southwark, to Kennington Common, in the following Manner, viz. First a party of Dragoons, then a large Party of the foot Guards, follow'd by the three Sledges, in the first of which were Francis. Townley, John Berwick, Andrew Blood, and the Executioner with a drawn Scymeter; in the Second, Thomas David Morgan, Thomas Deacon, and Thomas Syddal; in the Third, james Dawson, George Fletcher, and Thomas Chadwick, surrounded by the Foot- Guards, who also brought up the Rear. When they came to the Place of Execution they were all put into a Waggon, and the Faggots for burning their Hearts, Entrails, & c. was im- mediately set on fire; they were genteely dress'd, and behav'd with great Resolution: After they had pass'd some Time in Devotion they desir'd to speak to each other by themselves, which was granted ; the Discourse continued near a Quarter of an Hour, with great Ear- nestness and Devotion, at the End of which they all flung their Hats, Prayer- Books and some Papers, among the Spectators ; the Executioner then pull'd their Caps out of their pockets, and putting them on drew them over their Eyes, and they were immediately turn'd off. When they had hung about three Minutes the Sol- diers pulled off their Shoes, Stockings and Breeches, and the Executioner soon after pull'd off the rest of their Cloaths, then cutting them down sever'd their Heads from their Bodies, took out their Hearts and Entrails and threw them into the Fire; after which their Limbs were scarr'd, but not sever'd from their Bodies, and then carry'd back to the New- Gaol. Three of their Heads were kept, viz. Morgan's, which is to placed upon Temple Bar; Townley's at Carlisle ; and another at Manchester. There were present the greatest Number of Spectators ever seen together in the Memory of Man, some Thousands of whom waited in the Rain several hours to see the Execution of these unhappy Men. The Fourth and last General Seal, which WaS ap- pointed to be held at Lincoln's- Inn- Hall, before the Lord High Chancellor, as last Tuesday, was put off till this Day. The King of Denmark has resolv'd so to augment the Marine of his Kingdom, that he may have 18 or 10 Men of War ready to put to Sea upon Occasion, and the necessary Orders are given to the Yards for that Purpose. We hear from Reading, that on Monday last 16 Hor- ses wete enter'd there to run for three Plates on Bull- marsh- Heath near that Town, as follow, viz. For Tuesday the 5th of August, Seven, Wednesday the 6th, Six, and, Thursday the 7th, Three: And that it is very well assur'd that several others will enter at the Post : So that there is likely to be as great Sport as ever was known at that Place. We hear from Hereford, that on Thursday last was committed to their Gaol, one Hooper and his Son, for the murder of a Gentleman Unknown, on the 3d of May last.— A Servant Girl, that liv'd with the said Hooper, could not be at Peace in her Mind, ' till she had discover'd this horrid fact. The Prince Charles, Taylor, from Boston for Antigua, is taken and carried into Martinico. The King Solomon, Skull, from Antigua for Lon- don, is ashore near Youghall in Ireland j but the Cargoe will be sav'd Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, dated july 27 Yesterday arriv'd at Spithead his Majesty's Sloop the Viper, lately launch'd at Pool the Lieutenant of which, in her Passage round, went with his Boat mann'd to impress some of the Shipwrights at Work on the Men of War building near Southampton; on which a Quarrel ensued and the Lieutenant was se- verely handled, having his Skull fractur'd, and very much wounded: In the Scuffle the Boat went off with one of the Ship wrights and left the Lieutenant, and had not some People come by at the Time, they would have murder'd him; but he is so dangerously ill, that it is thought he cannot recover. _ • ' This Morning a Duel was fought between Major Beard, of the Young Buffs, and Captain Harling, of the Tilbury Man of War, now lying at Spithead; when, after several Passes, the Major was dangerously wounded. We hear that the Major, on some Words with the Captain at a Coffee- House, struck him ; on which the Captain calmly said, This is not a proper Place; but call'd the Major up the next Morning, when they fought. The great Match at Cricket between the County of Kent and ail England, that was to have been play'd To- morrow, is t0 be play'd on Saturday at Bromley Common ; the second Match in the Artillery Ground on Monday next.
